    2. A copy of the original Catan base game that'll have them trading and building their way to victory. They'll be so busy creating cities and settlements and vying for the coveted "Longest Road" card that they won't have a chance to get bored.

    3. A Le Labo set if bougie candles are the way to their heart. Yes, this is a splurge-y gift, but these scents are famous for a reason (especially Santal 26).

    4. An OLED Nintendo Switch if gaming is their passion. It'll bless them with even better graphics and resolution than the OG version, and it's small enough to pop in their bag so they can take it with them on all their trips.

    5. And a copy of the new Pokémon Violet or Pokémon Scarlet that'll be their new obsession. They'll get explore the wide-open world of Pokémon, discover (and catch) new creatures, and battle it out.

    6. A Dyson Airwrap if you want to treat them to a ~fancy~ gift that'll last them way longer than their budget heat tools (and save their hair from breakage, too). It comes with a ton of brush heads so they'll be able to master everything from beachy waves to smooth blowouts.

    7. A copy of Carrie Soto Is Back if they're a Taylor Jenkins Reid stan (I mean, who isn't these days). The book follows the story of the titular character, a retired tennis player, who is returning to the game to reclaim her record. Obviously, because it's written by TJR, there are plenty of emotional backstories and personal dramas involved.

    8. A pair of Beats Fit Pro earbuds that won't pop out when they least expect them to (like in the middle of a run). Reviewers say their noise-cancelling power is unparalleled and that they're so comfy, they can even wear them to sleep.

    9. Or a pair of noise-cancelling Apple AirPods Max if they think earbuds are, to quote Hilary Duff, 🎶 so yesterday 🎶. Reviewers say they're the best wireless headphones they've ever used and that the padding is so comfy, they can wear them all day long without irritation.

    10. A Sol de Janeiro kit that comes with the brand's cult-favourite Brazilian Bum Bum Body Cream, along with a body wash, body scrub, and fragrance mist. Everyone will be complimenting them on how great they smell, and they'll have you to thank for it.

    12. A pair of adidas Superstars, a timeless classic that will never go out of style. They were designed to be worn on basketball courts in the '70s, but they're stylish enough for any outing (and heckin' comfy, too).

    13. A scratch-off map for the nomad who just can't stop jetsetting. Now they'll be able to remember where they've been (and where they still have left to go).

    14. A pair of Warby Parker glasses because there's no gift like good vision, amiright? If these acetate frames don't suit their style, there are a ton of others to choose from and you can get them tailored to their prescription so they won't be stuck squinting.

    15. A bestselling matcha starter kit that'll save them from spending, like, $8 on green tea lattes every morning. It comes with a whisk, a scoop, and a sifter, plus a handbook that'll teach them everything they could ever want to know about matcha.

    16. An Unsolved Case File game that'll awaken their inner armchair detective and have them digging up dirt on potential suspects. Finally, all those hours spent watching serial killer documentaries and listening to murder podcasts will pay off.

    19. A copy of The Five-Minute Journal if they have trouble holding onto memories, but don't have the time or energy to start their own DIY journal. It has quick prompts for every day so they won't have to fuss over what to write about before putting pen to paper.

    20. An at-home pottery kit that'll give them an excuse to take up a new hobby. It comes with enough supplies to make six small pots (or two large pots), plus all the tools and a guidebook, so they can get started right away.

    21. A Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 if they're in desperate need of a new phone. Unlike your basic smartphone, this baby can be folded in half (and at a ton of different angles), so it can basically be its own tripod.

    22. A pair of classic UGG Coquette Clog Slippers to save their toes from freezing this winter. Thanks to their thick rubber treads, they won't slide around on their hardwood while they're wearing 'em.

    23. Or a pair of UGG Neumels with chunky platforms that'll give them a little help in the height department. They're lined with the brand's signature sheepskin material, which will keep their tootsies heckin' toasty.

    25. A Tatcha set that'll bless them with a whole slew of luxe skincare essentials to try out. It comes with three of the brand's hero Dewy products — a cleanser, a serum, and a moisturizer — and, best of all, they're all small enough to travel with.

    26. A Define Jacket from lululemon if oversized hoodies aren't their jam. It's made of breathable, sweat-wicking material that'll make it the perfect layering piece for winter jogs (they may wanna throw a vest on top for extra warmth, though).

    27. A pair of running leggings that are lined with brushed fleece, so they won't freeze when they go out for a jog this winter. Thanks to the handy zippered pocket above the tush, they won't have to rock a bulky arm band or fanny pack.

    28. A Jenny Bird choker to add to their already-impressive necklace collection. It's made of gold-dipped brass and has a lobster claw clasp that'll make it easy to do up on their own (I own this and can attest to it!).

    29. A Vitamix blender that can crush through ice, nuts, and just about anything else in mere seconds. They can adjust the speed with a flick of the dial, so whether they want to whip up chunky salsa or purée smooth nut milks, they'll be able to tackle their task with ease.

    32. A trio of Acid League x Onima hot sauces if they believe everything they eat should have a touch of 🌶. They range from mild to extra hot, so they can work their way up the Scoville scale.

    33. A Squishmallow lobster that is so cute, I can't even deal. Sure, it'd be a great gift for any kid in your life, but I, a full-grown adult, love snoozing on it. Do with that info what you will.

    34. A magical Revlon one-step styler that'll dry, volumize, and ~zhuzh~ their tresses all in one go. Now they won't need to mess around with a thousand hair tools when they're running late.

    35. An Instax Mini Evo Hybrid Camera that they can use to shoot and print pics. Unlike the original Instax, this one has a screen on the back, so they can actually see what they're taking a pic of without looking in the viewfinder.

    36. A gift set from The Body Shop mini body butters and shower gels in two seasonal scents: Wild Pine and Spiced Orange. 'Tis the season to stay moisturized and smell delicious.

    39. A Fellow kettle that'll inspire them to make their coffee every morning, instead of paying a barista to do it for them. They can set the temperature to their liking, so they won't be stuck waiting for their scalding-hot cuppa joe to chill.

    40. A transparent bird feeder that'll stick right onto their window so they can make some winged pals and squirrel friends. It has a dual-compartment feeding tray that slides out, making it easy to refill.

    41. A copy of Six California Kitchens that'll teach them a thing or two about cooking through both recipes and stories. Reviewers love that it's both a memoir and a cookbook and say the recipes aren't super daunting.

    42. A 4K Fire TV stick that'll make streaming their fave shows even easier. This lil' doodad won't take up much space on their coffee table, but it will give them access to all their streaming platform subscriptions in one place. It's even Alexa-enabled, meaning they can do everything with their voice.

    43. The Tote Bag from Marc Jacobs so they can schlep their stuff in style. It's made of durable canvas and has both interior and exterior pockets that'll help them keep their stuff organized.

    44. An INKBOX tattoo marker if they think they want some permanent ink, but need to test the waters first. Their lil' body art masterpieces will last two weeks, so they can actually get a feel for their ~lewk~.

    45. A Kérestase duo that'll bless them with the silky tresses of their dreams. It comes with the 8H Night Serum and the Elixir Ultime Original Hair Oil that'll work together to strengthen, hydrate, and dre-frizz their mane.

    46. A Burn After Writing journal that'll help them master the art of self-reflection and get into a better headspace. And once they've filled its pages with their feelz, they can toss it into the flames and literally burn away all the things that make them stressy and depressy.

    47. A puffer jacket that they'll be thankful for on the coldest days of winter. It's slightly cropped and has a cinchable hem, making it easy to switch up its silhouette.

    48. A fancy-shmancy Theragun Elite because they're probably in dire need of a massage, but are tired of booking pricey RMT sessions. It comes with five different massage heads that'll help them get into every knot, so they can really customize their massage.

    49. A Mermade hair waving tool if they love beachy waves more than life, but hate sleeping with their hair in braids. It'll heat up in under a minute and the ionic ceramic barrels will protect their hair from damage (though you may wanna add a heat protectant to their gift, just to be safe).

    50. A Canadian-Made Good For Sunday provincial parks sweatshirt that gives off vintage vibes and is the perfect extra-cozy top for winter. My boyfriend and I actually share this (lol), and if you want to do the same, I highly suggest sizing up.

    51. An outdoor pizza oven that'll have them crafting homemade pies that are way tastier than the 2-for-1 special they're used to ordering on Friday nights. It can be fuelled by gas or wood and has a built-in thermometer, so they'll always know how toasty their appliance is.

    52. A gigantic body pillow and a sherpa pillowcase — a match made in heaven that'll keep them comfy 'n' cozy 🎵all night long🎵. The pillow can be hugged, used for lumbar support, or slept on like a regular pillow (obvi), while the pillowcase will be the perfect winter swap for the cooling satin case they use in the summer.

    53. An Instagram-famous Always Pan that they can use to braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, boil, serve, AND store (she ain't just a one-trick pony). It's also so pretty, it'll probably be a regular feature on their grid.

    54. A Microsoft Surface 4 laptop if their current computer is always conking out on them. This sleek device is light as air and has a touch screen, so they won't have to click-clack away when they're online shopping or catching up with their Sims.

    55. A pair of wavy serving forks for the consummate host on your list. They'll jazz up any spread and make even the most boring salad look more interesting.

    56. A set of Jo Malone perfumes that'll take them on a scent adventure and help them find their new signature fragrance. The bottles are also small enough to tuck into tiny clutches and purse pockets, so they're great for bringing on the go.

    Alice holding the perfumes in a box

    57. A COSORI air fryer that'll give them all the joys of fried food without having to mess around with spattering oil. If they don't wanna stick around the kitchen while it gets down to business, they can pair it with the companion app — it'll allow them to monitor their cook time and switch up the settings remotely.

    58. And finally, a Nespresso Vertuo that'll handle all the hard work for them so they can make their coffee on autopilot. It can do espressos and full cups of coffee, meaning they can start their morning off with whichever type of java strikes their fancy.
