    1. A journal designed to help you de-stress. How? WRECK IT. Poke holes through the pages! Paint pages with coffee! SCRIBBLE!!

    2. A pop-up card sourced from this ADORABLE little stationary shop in Diagon Alley. I believe it's right next to Ollivanders.

    3. A 2019 wall calendar featuring sloths doing YOGA. Maybe it's time we change the position name from downward dog to downward sloth, eh?

    4. A Ben Franklin experiment guaranteed to make tea drinkers rejoice. Finally, a mug not intended for coffee!

    5. A painting kit that would give The Mona Lisa a run for its trillions. This pre-printed canvas comes with everything you need to create a gorgeous work of art (and wall decor) — canvas, painting brushes, and high-quality acrylic paints included.

    6. A sheet set made from a super soft jersey material that will feel like you're lounging on your coziest t-shirt. Now get ready to press snooze (about 10 times), because you'll officially never want to get out of bed.

    7. Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering by MY GIRL, Joanna Gaines. Look forward to hearty, classic recipes that will motivate everyone to stop ordering in so damn much.

    8. A mini projector that can turn any blank surface into a giant movie screen. Get ready for a home theatre right on the ceiling of your bedroom, fellow movie buffs!

    9. Black tea sachets with a hint of vanilla, caramel, and lemon housed in a gorgeous keepsake tin. Guess where I'll be storing all my future hair ties and bobby pins? RIGHT ALONG WITH MY TEA, folks.

    10. Paris in Color, a gorgeous book featuring photography of the most colorful corners in Paris. This is perfect for the S/O who wanted a trip to France this year but alas, you have yet to win the lottery.

    11. Affirmation cards packed with fun tips and advice you'll want to share with all of your family members. Kevin, this might be an especially good gift idea for you...

    12. A wine bottle vacuum pumper that removers air from your ~vino~ to preserve freshness for up to a week. Not that a bottle of wine would last a week in your house, but...

    13. A bag of reindeer farts (AKA cotton candy, duh!) guaranteed to make you the coolest big cousin at the holiday gift exchange this year. Get ready for class clown status.

    14. A horror-themed coloring book for the pal who prefers Halloween to Christmas, thank you very much.

    15. A silicone popcorn maker capable of making 15 cups of popcorn in under four minutes. Just add in some kernels, pop it in the microwave, and BAM! You're done!

    16. A recipe box (including 40 recipe cards) to add some much-needed ~zest~ to any kitchen. Pro tip! Give this to your grandmother, have her fill it out, and BAM! You'll now know how to make her "world famous" ravioli.

    17. An insulated stainless steel bottle to keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to six hours. PLUS, this baby has a lifetime warranty. Consider this a forever kind of marriage.

    18. A makeup brush set that adds a touch of "I wear genuine pearl earrings" class to any AM makeup routine. Swiping on that blush will feel like a delight with all this gorgeous marble.

    19. Whiskey in a Teacup by Reese Witherspoon! Read about her life growing up in the south and all the fun tidbits of info she learned along the way — the recipe for mouth-watering cheddar biscuits, for example.

    20. Hot cocoa mix so indulgent, Willy Wonka himself would swear that this was sourced from his chocolate waterfall.

    21. A 2019 wall calendar featuring le QUEEN, Frida Kahlo. Not only will this thing remind you of the date, but these gorgeous illustrations will line your walls with some much-needed ART.

    22. A TSA-approved transparent organizer so that they don't have to fish around their suitcase for liquids (and then frantically stuff them in a clear baggy) while going through security. Perfect for the person with "wanderlust" in their Insta bio!

    23. A dishwasher magnet that will tell you if those dang dishes are disgustingly dirty or squeaky clean. No more pulling out your favorite mug to see that it's coated in leftover coffee!

    24. A minimalist-inspired book packed with a ton of (affordable) ideas to help you achieve that cozy, pulled-from-Pinterest interior design look. Say goodbye to CLUTTER, my friends.

    25. A slow rising squish toy you'll want to keep handy at the office. Consider yourself prepared for the next "As per my last email..." situation.

    26. A mini essential oil diffuser that will turn their bedroom into an aromatherapy oasis. They just have to add a few drops of lavender, plug this puppy in, and get ready to relax.
