1. Ear climbers for the pal who wants additional piercings but is simply too chicken to go through with it. Their first one happened at the age of one! Claire’s is scary! TL;DR: these climbers will add more to their lobe, no needles required.

Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in three sizes and three finishes).

2. A wish bracelet that can be personalized with a custom message *plus* the string color of your choosing. When the bracelet breaks, their wish comes true — so I highly suggest nudging them into wishing you win the lottery.

thepokeypixie / Etsy

Get it from thepokeypixie on Etsy for $4 (available in 27 colors and eight charm styles).

3. A zodiac constellation necklace for the person who gets extremely heated when they hear unfair stereotypes given to their fellow Scorpio brethren. We’re passionate. Leave us be.

Promising review: "It’s perfect!! This was a bday gift for my best friend who collects delicate jewelry and is very discerning about it. She loves it! The charms are the perfect size — eye-catching but not too ostentatious. It honestly looks better than I thought it would." —Bee

Get it from BABEINA on Etsy for $18.74+ (available in 12 styles).

4. Lightweight hoop earrings available in yellow, white, and rose gold as well as in three sizes. Reviewers swear these versatile bebe's look like they could easily cost five times the price — thankfully, they do not. "Oh, you shouldn't have spent so much!" "Haha, I totally didn't!"

Promising review: "I am picky when it comes to jewelry. I hate when cheap jewelry changes colors, starts fading, or finish rubs off at the smallest bit of wear. These for real look like they cost way more. I have seen identical gold hoops for five times times more than the cost of these. I actually first discovered these through several instagram influencers and was shocked they were so cheap haha I immediately bought them in gold and silver. I honestly would still buy them if the price was double what they cost." —Chloe

Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in three colors and sizes).

5. Birthstone earrings packaged in a gorgeous keepsake box that means *wipes away eyebrow sweat* you won't have to worry about wrapping paper this year. The bane of my personal existence every holiday season, tbqh.

Made By Mary

Get them from Made By Mary for $24 (available in 12 gemstones).

6. A letter necklace for the person you’re obligated to give a gift to, but don’t really…know that well?! This Secret Santa option lets you purchase an accessory with their first initial, making it seem like a much more heartfelt present.

Promising review: "This will be a gift for my loved one. It comes with a nice packaging. Looks neat in detail. I think it’s good for the price as you will not need to find a nice box for the gift. I selected the length, 24-inch (longest), and it is exactly the length I bought (I measured it)." —Vorakamol

Get it from Amazon for $12.97 (available in five lengths).

8. A set of three pairs of gold-plated freshwater pearl huggie earrings you'll be tempted to keep for yourself — and no one would blame you for that very understandable betrayal! These are way too pretty to wrap up and give away. Add two to your cart. We deserve this.

The three pairs of earrings: gold studs with dangling baroque pearls, gold open hoops with dangling small round pearls, and baroque pearl open hoops

Stella and Hass is a Black woman-owned brand that makes just absolutely gorgeous accessories.

Get them from Amazon for $29.97.

Get it from BaubleBar for $58 (available in 12 stone styles).

24. A mega stud earring set because accessories fatigue is real deal. One pack = 40 gorgeous individual earrings and 20 sets, which *whips out knowledge of Pythagorean theorem* means you’ll be paying $1 for one pair. I think.

Free People

Promising review: "I seriously love these earrings, they are great quality at an amazing price! These are also my favorite earrings to gift my toddler, I already bought two sets for her stocking. They last and she loves all of the colors and shapes, plus they don't hurt her ears. I 100% recommend them for everyone at every age!" —MHill

Get it from Free People for $20 (available in 18 colors).

25. A beautifully-constructed Daniel Wellington watch — the kind of splurge-worthy accessory that would be passed down through family members for generations to come. When words fail, I'll let an emoji do the talking: 😍.

Daniel Wellington

This watch is water-resistant, designed with a leather strap, and is guaranteed to get you a minimum of 9,000 compliments (per day).

Promising review: "I have three Daniel Wellington watches and love them all! This one in particular is extremely elegant. The gold is a really subtle rose gold, which I like. I was worried it might be too far towards rose gold, but it is really lovely. I've had my other watches from DW for about three years and they have held up perfectly; still look really beautiful. This one in particular makes any outfit look instantly nicer. I'd highly recommend buying this watch if you want something simple, beautiful, elegant, and sharp." —Neil Mejia

Get it from Amazon for $169 (available in two sizes).

26. Sterling silver cubic zirconia studs that look like they would run you about trillion bucks, but no — they actually cost very little and even my humble savings account wouldn't be bothered by the purchase.,

Promising review: "Really beautiful earrings! They look expensive and not gaudy by any means. I have been considering spending $500 on a pair of different studs, but now I’m not sure they're worth the money. You can get the same look with these earrings for so much less!" —Lauren Carter

Get them from Amazon for $10 (available in three sizes and finishes).

27. A Jet Set Candy accessory so they can travel the globe — sort of. This brand uses quality sterling silver, 14-karat vermeil, or solid gold to create destination-inspired jewelry that will do nothing to quell their wanderlust. Sorry, not sorry.

Shop travel-inspired jewelry from Jet Set Candy starting at $15.

28. Dainty flower earrings truly worth a Shakespearean novel because I, for one, now officially believe in love at first sight. I never thought I'd have such strong feelings about lobe accessories but here we are!


Get it from Aurate for $150 (available in three finishes).

29. A chain bracelet so timeless-yet-trendy, you really can't go wrong with it. Rest assured that unwrapping this gorgeous hunk of arm candy is all but guaranteed to make any recipient happy.

model wearing the gold chain bracelet

Promising review: "This bracelet is as beautiful as it looks on the photo. It has a tiny charm that says 'chain of hope' by the clasp. I love that this company uses proceeds from the sale of the bracelet to bring water to people in need." —b. swale

Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

30. Lucky Feather bracelets intended for those in a long-distance relationship. The onyx and howlite represent love and strength so if you'll excuse me, I'm two-day shipping this all the way to my best friend who has so rudely decided to move to Boston.


Promising review: "I work out of town a lot with the railroad, so thought these would be perfect for my wife and me. I was skeptical mine would be too small or hers too big, but they BOTH fit perfectly. The two of us absolutely love them and would recommend them to anyone." —Tyler Hicks

Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

31. Tiered chandelier earrings that have the witchy ability to turn unintentionally ripped jeans and a wrinkled white tee into an ensemble suitable for champagne and caviar feasts. They can throw these on pre-Zoom holiday party to feel extra festive.

Get them from Amazon for $11.99.

33. A set of five gold-plated bracelets they'll find themselves reaching for every darn morning. If you're looking to gift a pièce de résistance that will complement pretty much every piece of clothing they own, then this is IT.

A wrist with four bracelets: a twisted one, a knotted bangle, an open bangle with leaves on the ends, and an arrow-shape one

Promising review: "Super cute and durable bangle bracelets. I wear these stacked or individually and they help style any outfit. Super happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend them!" —Kimberly

Get the set of five from Amazon for $10.99 (available in six styles).

34. A signet ring — a truly ~heavenly~ gold vermeil accessory that is heart-shaped but still delightfully grown-up? It doesn’t look like something sourced from Limited Too which, for heart-shaped accessories, is truly rare.

The M Jewelers

Get it from The M Jewelers for $100 (available in sizes 5-9 and in two finishes).

35. A layered infinity necklace to imply that you love them to infinity and beyond. (In fact, you love them *almost* as much as you love the entire Toy Story franchise.)

model wearing the infinity necklace

Psst, hate the infinity symbol? No worries. This necklace is available with several different pendants ranging from full moons to crosses.

Promising review: "I love this necklace! I have worn it in the pool, lake, river, shower, summer water balloon fights, all the works, and it has not turned green at all!!

the silver charm

Promising review: "I purchased this about a month ago and immediately added it to my Disney bracelet. The detail on the house is amazing and the colors of the balloons really pop." —IndiannaGrrl

Get it from Pandora for $35.75 (originally $55).

38. Acrylic geometric hoops available in a leopard print for anyone who was obsessed with the whole ~leopard print skirt~ trend but prefers to go unnoticed as a basic.

Promising review: "I have been looking for a fun pair of earrings that are not too heavy and these are it! One of my earlobes has stretched/ripped a bit over time so I always look for lightweight dangly earrings. Couldn't be happier with these and they arrived quickly!" —Natalie Challita

Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in seven colors).
