1. A Fellow Stagg electric pour-over kettle capable of giving minimalists (and nonminimalists alike) heart eyes because it is not only super chic, but it also will help craft the perfect cup of pour-over coffee or tea with its variable temperature control and precision heating.

Amazon

Promising review: "I was skeptical about purchasing this item because most kettles on the market are priced lower than this, but I do have to say: ***It is worth every freaking penny.*** This kettle heats up lightning fast to the degree chosen, holds temp, is easy to pour, and it did make the best cup of coffee in my life. Another thing that sets this kettle apart from any other electric kettle really is that it is very very easy to clean! It is worth the investment." —Allison J.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $158+ (available in two styles and six colors).

2. A Barefoot Dreams throw blanket with a cult following that includes Chrissy Teigen and the Kardashians. Whoever you gift this to will feel like royalty when they snuggle up under this ultra-soft and cozy blanket and catch up on season 4 of Selling Sunset.

The blanket is made from 100% polyester microfiber blend that makes it SUPER soft. It can be washed on cold and tumbled dry on low.

Promising review: "Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she loved this blanket and mentioned that it easily stretches over the shoulders and feet. Let me tell you, it does. I'm only 5'5" so it does the trick. This blanket makes me look forward to going to sleep. It's not too warm yet you feel wrapped up in a cloud. Totally worth the money. I want another one." —Michael A. Roman

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $180.

3. A Wisdom Panel dog DNA kit because it may seem frivolous, but it's actually super insightful and useful for them to find out exactly what their little mutt is a mix of. Plus, when they get asked 12 times at the dog park, they'll actually be able to give a straight answer.

Amazon, Abby Kass / BuzzFeed / Via Wisdom

I surprised my parents with a Wisdom Panel last Christmas, and while it was a gift I gave to them, it was kind of a gift for all of us. My parents adopted a puppy last fall, and we had no idea what kind of dog she was. All we knew when we brought her home was that her mom had been 38 pounds, and she looked like she was part Lab. Since we didn't know much about her history, we were interested in learning more about her DNA, and the Wisdom Panel was great for that. It was pretty easy to use, though I will mention that Izzy wasn't such a fan of us taking the sample. But after we did, we sent it off to the lab, and a few weeks later, got her results back. We learned that our little mutt was actually more German shepherd than she was a Lab, and also six other kinds of dogs. It was so fascinating to read about the different breeds and see how her behavior correlated with each one. It gave us insight into her history that we didn't have before. I highly recommend Wisdom Panel for anyone who wants to learn more about their pup.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $74.99 (originally $99).

4. A smart wallet with a quick card access mechanism, RFID blocking, and a tracker to keep the valuables they take with them safe and protected, even if they accidentally leave their wallet in an Uber...again.

Ekster Wallets / Via instagram.com

The wallet fans out cards with a click of a button — making it super easy to grab the card they want in seconds. Plus, the RFID blocking helps protect against skimming, and the tracker makes sure it's never lost for long.

Promising review: "This is truly a unique and extremely high-quality wallet that takes into account how we really use this everyday necessity. The push-button reveal of credit cards not only makes access easy but keeping the cards fanned till you return them to your wallet makes it almost impossible to forget your card and with the tracker, you won't leave your Ekster behind either. I’m a wallet freak who’s not easy to please…and I’m in heaven." —Sam Egan

Shipping info: Standard shipping is free, and orders will arrive in about two to five business days. Priority and express shipping options are available for an additional cost. 

Get it from Ekster for $67 (originally $89; available in six colors).

5. Bala Bangles ankle weights to give their workout some ~weight~ and help them increase their resistance while staying comfortable and looking so good while doing it they won't be embarrassed to wear them out of the house.

Amazon

Promising review: "Bala Bangles have truly reinvented wrist/ankle weights. I am actually not embarrassed to wear these in public. In fact, people ask me all the time where I purchased these from. Bala is comfortable throughout the workout and actually intensifies it as well — I thought, 1 lb, no way will I truly be able to tell the difference... WRONG. I often have to take these off halfway into my class because it's that much more challenging. I also travel a ton for work and these are easily packable and great to utilize in my hotel room/gym if I can't make it to a workout class. This is now the second color I have purchased and could not be happier with the product. How someone did not think of this sooner I will never know... But I am glad because Bala Bangles did it right. They are worth every penny. I highly recommend this product to any and everyone." —Jules Lee

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get a set of two from Amazon for $49+ (available in two weights and 13 colors).

6. A cashmere crewneck anyone on your list will love because it's a simple yet classic style that ~packs a punch~ with its warmth.

Boden

Promising review: "This sweater is made from high-quality cashmere, so it is supremely soft and comfortable. I love the bright, modern style. It's beautifully made too and great value for money. I highly recommended it." —Mintcake

Shipping info: Shipping is free on orders $49+. Order by midnight on Dec. 15 with standard shipping, Dec. 19 with expedited shipping, and Dec. 22 with express shipping to receive the order by the 25th.

Get it from Boden for $195 (available in men's sizes S–XXL and in six colors).

7. A Slip silk pillowcase here to make sleep feel even more like a ~dream~, especially when they wake up without sleep lines or bedhead. (Not to mention their skin looking great too!)

Slip

The pillowcase is made from 100% silk, which is less absorbent than other fibers. This means that all those products they put on their skin and in their hair stay where they belong. Plus, silk reduces friction, causing less pulling on both their hair and skin — leaving both looking and feeling better when they wake up in the morning.

Promising review: "This is an investment, and it is so worth it. I have curly, frizzy hair, and this has been a lifesaver. I actually wake up with my hair looking OK rather than like a clown. The pillowcase is soft and no doubt good for my skin. You do have to hand-wash it, which isn't too difficult, and it dries super quick, too." —Peanut13

Shipping info: 

For Amazon: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

For Nordstrom: Nordstrom offers free shipping on all orders — and in-stock items should arrive three to eight business days after the order is placed. If you need it faster, you can select expedited shipping.

8. A pair of Sony overhead headphones that left reviewers (almost 3,000!!) raving that these are some of the best headphones they've ever used. The 30-hour battery life, quick charging, touch sensors controls, speak-to-chat technology, and more features take these the extra mile and make them one stellar gift.

Amazon

Promising review: "I've never spent more than $100 on headphones. I was worried about spending this much on headphones. But, WOW, I'm so happy I did. If these are headphones, then my others were garbage. Noise cancelling, features in the app, touch sensitivity, noise cancellation, and pass-through. I'm a fan. All that and AMAZING sound bases hit lows are clear. I don't know how it could get much better. But, it does! They come with an airplane adapter, a USB cable, a headphone cable, and a nice case. I like everything about them. I 100% recommend." —zach2825

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Amazon

Promising review: "This is such a beautiful addition to our home. The diffuser is sturdy and well-made. I love the porcelain cover, which makes it look like a piece of art on our side table. It's such a great alternative to burning candles. I highly recommend it; it's worth the investment!" —Jenni

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

11. A Dagne Dover duffle bag made out of neoprene and mesh for a super soft bag they'll be able to fit SO much stuff in that they'll never travel without it again.

Dagne Dover / Via instagram.com, Dagne Dover

I've had this duffle for years now, and it's one of my favorite things I own. I'm not exaggerating when I say it is the PERFECT carry-on bag. The neoprene fabric makes it so it can fit so much and slide perfectly under the seat in front of you. The pockets inside make sure everything has a place and stays organized. And one of the coolest features is the small outside pocket that fits your phone perfectly. It's also a great bag for a weekend trip as a duffle. I let my mom borrow mine when she traveled across Europe a couple of months ago, and now I have to get her own for Christmas because she's joined the #TeamDagneDover travel team.

Shipping info: Nordstrom offers free shipping on all orders — and in-stock items should arrive three to eight business days after the order is placed. If you need it faster, you can select expedited shipping.

Get it from Nordstrom for $160 (originally $200; available in three colors).

Bearaby / Via instagram.com

Bearaby is a woman-founded business creating beautiful weighted blankets made from sustainable materials. This blanket is made from recycled marine plastic. Each velvet napper keeps 900 plastic bottles from polluting the oceans.

Promising review: "I was reluctant to purchase this napper because of the price. But I decided to treat myself, and I am so happy I did. I LOVE the way it hugs my body and gives me a feeling of comfort. I also like the airflow and chunky-knit fabric/design, which is different from others I have seen. It's not only functional but also decorative. The guide was helpful in recommending the correct weight, and I honestly sleep better with this napper! I highly recommend it! " —Elise W.

13. A Shark air purifier actually designed with a Clean Sense IQ that auto-adjusts the power to keep the air clean and pure, so if they accidentally burn dinner, it will work more to clear the air of smoke as soon as possible. Plus, it works in rooms up to 1,200 square feet, has six high-speed fans, and is super quiet.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this air purifier! You can actually see it working. Mine is in my bedroom, which is so helpful to my allergies! If I’m cooking something in the kitchen, you can see when the smell of the food reaches my bedroom door. When set on auto, the air quality number drops below 100% (how far it drops depends on the food smell) and the fan turns up and starts cleaning the air. Even with something like burned toast or popcorn, the air is cleaned and the smell is gone very quickly. Where burned popcorn otherwise lasts for hours. I’m very pleased with this product. I would definitely recommend it!" —Donanne Bisbee

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $249.99.

Promising review: "This set is filled with great products. I've been using it for a week or two and I am enjoying all the products. My pores look smaller and my skin looks smoother with fewer breakouts. Nice value as well, these will likely last a while." —katd15

15. An acrylic Squatty Potty anyone ~clearly~ needs, because it not only works just as well as the regular version, but it also will actually be a beautiful addition to whatever bathroom it's in.

Amazon

Promising review: "This thing is SLEEK! I bought this for my new home's main floor guest bath. We wanted to provide guests with the convenience of 'squat pot' without the eyesore of the white 7-inch one. I feel like if Kim and Kanye had a Squatty Potty, it would be this one. I find it's shaped SLIGHTLY different than my white 7-inch one, and I like that. I also find no squeaking noise as I pull or push it from the basin of the toilet, unlike my white one. My guests didn't notice it was there until I pointed it out. Go with the ghost acrylic, you won't regret it!" —Durga D

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

16. A Cuisinart compact bread maker great for anyone who's been perfecting their sourdough recipe. With this sleek machine, they'll be able to easily make bread by just selecting what kind they want to make, putting the dough in, and walking away.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The machine is fully automatic with 12 preprogrammed options and three crust shades. It can bake up to a two-pound loaf. Plus, it has a 13-hour delayed start so they can have freshly baked bread ready whenever they want.

Promising review: "This machine really is awesome. I plugged it in within a couple of minutes of it being delivered and was able to make French bread right away! It comes with a handy recipe book and I can't wait to try the other variations. I'm vegan and oil-free so this was a perfect gift to me and my family so we can have fresh plant-based oil-free bread anytime we want! So easy to clean and looks sleek as well!" —Ryan B

Shipping info: Even though the product says it's "In stock soon" it should arrive before Christmas. Once it's available, it will ship with Amazon Prime two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $89.95.

17. An adjustable standing desk because if they've been working from home since March 2020 (or earlier) and haven't invested in a good desk, they'll be so very thankful to finally have an actual space to get their work done. This baby is well worth it. Not only can they customize the height (and move it up and down during the day as they please), but it can hold up to 275 pounds, is water and scratch resistant, and has an included cable tray to keep your desk free and clear of cords.

FlexiSpot

I am actually writing this post while using this desk, and I can confirm it is SO worth it. I just moved into a new apartment and wanted an actual workspace after working from home for almost two years at this point. The desk itself is a good size — I can fit my laptop in the middle as well as other things on either side. And the adjustable part is super handy. It moves up and down smoothly and helps me not sit for too long. I highly recommend this as a gift for anyone who will be working from home for the foreseeable future. 

Promising review: "I love this desk! The motors are super quiet, and it moves up and down smoothly. The tabletop (bamboo) seems very solid and durable. The base also feels solid and is heavy so it seems like it will last. I also love that you can program four custom heights that you choose and just touch a button and it goes to that height. Great desk! I recommend FlexiSpot and Kana Pro bamboo desk for sure!" —Zach

They can remotely adjust the temperature to get it just right (using an app), and they can also select a personalized LED color.

Promising review: "What's not to like! I received this as a gift and would not normally ever even think of paying $100 for a coffee temperature maintenance system like this, and I've tried them all, but after using it for one day, I would pay double for this! As a matter of fact, I'm going to pay $20 more and buy the larger 14-oz mug! All I can say is, I LOVE THIS THING!" —Amazon Customer

Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed Shopping writer Rachel Dunkel says, "Random canvas totes may come and go, but nothing beats having a permanent, go-to bag. I've had this since college when I used it to carry my heavy load of books, my laptop, and other English major paraphernalia, but it's transitioned flawlessly into my adult life where — OK — I still use it to carry books and my computer. The leather is getting a lovely patina and the structure of the bag is as strong as the day I got it. It has one zippered interior pocket which is perfect for keys, cards, or any other tiny necessities. I received this as a gift, so I can confirm that it makes a good one!

Everlane

Promising review: "The shirt is soft but the material feels remarkably rugged. It is THICK. Clearly well-made. The color and fit around the shoulders are really what sets it apart, though. It's a three-season shirt/jacket for sure." — jackSjack

Get it from Everlane for $88 (available in men's sizes XS–XXL and in eight colors).

Fable

Fable is a NYC-based, family-owned biz that creates pet gear made to solve problems.

BuzzFeed Shopping editor Bek O'Connell says: "This leash is such a lifesaver. My dog is very anxious and has a tendency to bolt. I'm talking 0 to 100, dead sprint. I was so scared that he would catch me off guard and the leash would fly out of my hands. Being able to loop this over my head (I wear it cross-body) has given me total peace of mind. Best of all, I can have both hands free while navigating various walking obstacles. The ease of being able to dig around in your bag while keeping your dog attached to your hip is truly priceless. Bonus: It comes in colors your dog can actually see."

The blanket comes with cables to charge it in either a car or home, plus two USB ports.

Promising review: "This product is AMAZING!!!! It not only keeps you warm, but it is water-resistant, so when you are sitting at your kid's soccer game in the freezing rain you are warm AND dry! It stays charged for A LONG time, and I love that I can charge my phone using the battery pack! I work from home and my office is in the basement, so I am cold year-round. This is perfect to wrap up in on super-cold days or just drape over my legs if I’m just a little chilly. If I get up, my dog immediately steals it LOL! Where have you been all my life Cozee?!?! I could say a million great things about it! Just buy one and find out for yourself." —RKey

Amazon

Promising review: "What can I say, I've had my pot a little over a week, and I have used it almost daily. The 5.5 qt is the perfect size for my family of five. It's an adventure finding recipes to fix and am confident that this will become a family heirloom. I made the best spaghetti and meatballs with very little, effortless cleanup which never happened with my old, cheap Dutch oven. It's well worth the cost for this beautiful pot." —Helenj

28. A Bandolier phone case with a wallet and a strap for a phone accessory they'll find so useful because they can keep track of their phone and leave the house without needing a big tote or purse.

Amazon, Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

I've been using this brand's phone cases for almost two years now and whole heartily swear by them. The phone cause itself is super nice and has a convenient pocket on the back where you can keep credit cards, ID, etc. It's super easy to get the strap on and off, and I've basically been using it as my purse over the past six months because I don't need much else when I leave the house. I got the first one as a sample, but have returned to purchase a new one when I upgraded my phone last year. I get compliments on this case ALL the time. It looks super chic and is so very useful, which is precisely why it makes a great gift.

Promising review: "I’m obsessed with my Bandolier. It’s so useful having my phone and Metro Card so accessible so I don’t have to dig through my bags. I feel comfortable wearing it, and I love the hands-free aspect. I never worry about someone stealing it, and I don’t go anywhere without it!!!" —M.F.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Plus, it comes with a milk frother, so you can make your own lattes and cappuccinos.

Promising review: "Nespresso machine is the best investment I have made in my kitchen. Since I tasted delicious coffee, I will never drink any other brand. I use to drink Starbucks daily, for which I would spend $6 a day, but now I ONLY spend a dollar or two (think of a long-term saving). I would definitely recommend this coffee maker. Thank you, Nespresso, for making such a delicious coffee, I am in heaven each morning." —senada

Promising review: "I'm OBSESSED with this bracelet! I work on a military base, which means I cannot carry a gun with me or in my car. I’ve been looking for something to make me feel a little safer especially when I go somewhere after work. I feel so much more secure being able to have this on me at all times! I pray I never have to use it, but if I do, I know I’ll be safe, and that’s all that matters to me!" —Callie S.

Shipping info: Shipping is free on orders over $100. All US orders are shipping the same or next business day. Priority and Express shipping options are available for an additional charge.

31. A towel warmer, because they'll never feel fancier than when they step out of the warm shower in winter and avoid freezing by wrapping themselves in a warm towel that feels like a big hug. Ahhhh!

It fits about two towels (or even a towel and a robe or other fabric items) and has a 15-minute adjustable timer.

Promising review: "I bought one for myself, then bought several others as presents because it's so nice. It's fairly small and easy to find space for even in a small bathroom but is also big enough to hold two large towels at a time. There are a few small things to watch for: occasionally the on button takes a bit of finagling to work; it takes about eight minutes to hit 'maximum' towel warmth; if the lid is askew/not fully on the towel loses a lot of heat; there's a bit of a plastic odor that goes away after the first few uses. But if you're aware of those things it's super luxurious and worth every penny, having a super-warm towel waiting for you counters all the misery of having to leave the shower in the winter. It also makes a great present, it's the kind of luxury item people don't normally think to get for themselves but makes life so much better. Anybody who says you can't buy happiness obviously hasn't bought a towel warmer." —Heather

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Promising review: "You wouldn't ever think you needed a 'portable' speaker in you home, but once you try it, you'll love it. This speaker is one of three Bose speakers that we use for a great music experience, and the great thing about this speaker is you grab the handle, unplug it, and bring it to wherever you want.

Not only is it size adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candleholder, and extra space for whatever else their cozy heart desires.

Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

I actually got this frame for my dad a few years ago for Christmas and then again for Fathers Day this year after it accidentally fell and broke (with no fault of its own). My dad LOVES taking pictures (like used to keep albums and albums before photos were digital), so I thought this would be great for him. It was super easy to set up and connects to Wi-Fi. It then comes with an email address where you can send the photos you want it to rotate through. My parents keep it running all the time. It's a nice way to actually see all the photos you have without them taking up all the walls in your home.
