1. A digital photo frame that'll help them display hundreds of photos with just one frame!

Promising review: "It's super easy to set up and use, and has beautiful, clear resolution for photos. I love that it automatically adjusts for portrait or landscape orientation. This was a gift to my grandparents for Christmas as they have just moved into assisted living and had to get rid of many of their frames and photos from over the years. So what better way than to have them all in one place?!? Our next project is to scan their old photos from when they were both children and throughout their lives and put those on another flash drive so they can interchange them. My Ma-maw was even able to figure out the remote control and sat flipping through photos while we opened presents. It couldn't be more perfect." —Aunt BebeGet it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in five sizes).

10. A moon night light to make their new bedroom feel out of this world.

Promising review: "This is AWESOME even if it is a novelty item. I absolutely love it. With the light off, it looks like a pretty nondescript plastic ball. It's lightweight and there's really nothing to it. But light it up in a dark room and it's just mesmerizing. The white glow is pretty dim but really pops in a dark room, and the yellow glow is bright enough to see in a lit room. It came with the stand and a USB cable to charge it. Operation is quite simple, at the south pole per se, is a small metal dot. This is your touch sensor. One touch for white, two for yellow, and a third cycles it back off. Close inspection shows this was made via 3D printing, but it's a quality job. It's very very well done. Overall I'm absolutely in love with this." —Sean WallGet it from Amazon for $14.99.

Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE! This diffuser is beautiful. It looks like actual wood. The light can be set to change color every few seconds or you can pick a set color or have no light at all. I have a large two story house and while this is in my bedroom it spreads to the whole house. If I run it all night I will refill it the following night. I love that you can also choose multiple settings for the mist: On/off, one hour, or three hours. This works as stated and I’ve used it every day or night since purchasing it two months ago. I will be buying another and am thinking of gifting to some moms in my life for mother’s day. I can’t say enough good things." —Marissa Justice Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in five colors).

22. A set of bath bombs for turning their new bathroom into an at-home spa.

Promising review: "I ordered these as a housewarming gift to myself. We went from a starter home with one bath tub (with three kids), to us having a master bathroom with a soaking jet tub. I tried a few bath bombs from local vendors but I wasn't impressed. I decided to give these a try! I opened the mailbox and could immediately smell them! Later that night I had to try one, I chose the Victorian rose scent. There was a small rose floating around the bath tub and the smell was heavenly! I have super sensitive skin so I was nervous to try these bath bombs but I didn't have a reaction to them! The smell didn't fade away, in fact I didn't want to leave the bath. The bath bomb didn't stain my tub, and I noticed my skin was smooth. I highly recommend these to all my friends and family. We have a house warming party in two weeks and I'll keep them out for neighbors, friends, and family to sniff." —Reyna HiblerGet them from Amazon for $26.80.
