32 Products That Are The Epitome Of Gifts That Keep On Giving

They'll use these items again (and again and again and again).

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A W&P Porter ceramic mug as gorgeous as it is useful (I mean, this screams Pinterest board). This is reusable, has a protective silicone sleeve, and comes with a secure lid press that makes this the perfect companion for daily morning strolls.

2. A Rosetta Stone subscription if they've been threatening to pick up and move to Paris. Support their dreams of eating buttery baguettes and perusing the Louvre by gifting them the tools necessary for learning the language.

3. The Wand, a mini histamine and sulfite filter that they can swirl around in their Ikea wine glass to halt hangovers in just 20 seconds. They can resume their SVU marathon with some red in hand, knowing they won't wake up to a monster headache.

4. Fleece-lined leggings described by one reviewer as a magical furry leg dream and wow, what a compliment. These babies will keep them warm in freezing temperatures best described as "I can see my breath."

5. A Bed Head ceramic waver to give them the tousled beach mane they've been saving to their Pinterest board for ages, no sea salt spray necessary. They simply have to separate their hair into sections, clamp down for a few seconds, and that's it — no twirling strands around a large barrel necessary.

6. A lush double-sided shaggy faux-fur duvet set because we are entering winter, ergo they plan on wrapping themselves in cozy accessories that enhance allll their impending Harry Potter marathons.

7. A handmade match striker you can personalize from three color palettes *and* the option to add some fancy matches, a surefire way to make them feel as if lighting that three-wick candle is even more bougie.

8. An essential-oils blend packed with soothing chamomile, sage, and lavender. All they'll have to do is add a few drops to a diffuser (or dab it on their wrists and pillow) to help them quickly drift off to la-la land.

9. A nubby scarf they'll love for swaddling their bodies when it's freezing out. Excellent for the neck region, but this thing is large enough to function like a chic poncho.

10. A Wi-Fi extender because their bedroom is inexplicably an internet dead zone and holding their laptop up in the air [cue every scary movie scene in which a car breaks down and the main character is stranded in the middle of nowhere] won't cut it. This strengthens Wi-Fi connection throughout their entire home to ensure they don't freeze mid-Zoom call.

11. A three-tier woven basket ideal for...pretty much anything. They can use this to display colorful fruits that will hopefully be consumed by end of week, hang faux succulents (they'd never be able to take care real ones), use it to store the beauty products that won't fit on their bathroom countertop, etc.

12. A W&P tray ideal for folks who daydream of owning a fancy stainless steel fridge (ice maker included) but are sadly stuck with a huge white box from 1973. The silicone lid means ice comes out easily, plus the stackable design allows for ice storage.

13. A Tushy bidet attachment so they can ditch the wasteful TP once and for all — no more screaming out to their children for a fresh roll because they've realized, all too late, that there wasn't any left.

14. A galaxy projector if they, like me, are a 26-year-old adult with a perpetual fear of the dark. Consider this an easy way for them to hide the fact that their cousins made them watch The Exorcist at the ripe age of 5 and they haven't been the same ever since — lighting aside, their ceiling will look magical. 

All jokes aside, this is a genuinely awesome projector — it comes with a remote control, Bluetooth capability, white noise options, and 10 colorways to choose from. 

Promising review: "Oh man, I was nervous about the quality of this product, but when it arrived, it exceeded expectations. It has a ton of different color/brightness/rotation settings and while the remote took a little time to figure out, it works great! The Bluetooth hookup is amazing for meditating, but I could see using it for more of a party vibe. This was SO worth every penny. Relaxing, comforting, and aesthetically GORGEOUS." —Samantha Aiello

15. A powerful set of fridge magnets because the very little fridge space they have is currently occupied by almond milk (boring) and cold cuts (meh). These babies ensure that they're maximizing space and keeping bevvies organized at the same time.

Promising review: "Of all the things I have bought that I didn't need, this is one of my favorites. Beer is hard to get out of the cardboard carrier in the top of my fridge. While just taking them out and sitting them on the shelf would have solved this problem as well. This solution is more fun. They float and technically it does make a tiny bit of extra space under the beer for small things like cheese or something." —AbbyValentine

16. An Amazon Fire TV stick with the ability to turn any TV into a smart TV — they can just plug this puppy into the HDMI port, connect it to Wi-Fi, and BAM! Simple streaming awaits.

17. An electric grinder if they're sick of [insert affordable instant brand here] and are trying to broaden their caffeine horizons. This affordable present chews up and spits out whole beans into coarse, medium, or fine grinds. Beans! Beans! They make you very happy if allocated for the perfect cup of coffee.

18. A wick trimmer because they absolutely bought 103 candles from the annual Bath & Body Works sale — and no judgement, because #same. But did you know that cutting the wick prevents soot and makes for an even burn so that every dollop of wax melts into eucalyptus goodness?! Now you do.

19. A pair of wireless sleep headphones for anyone who can't fall asleep in less-than-perfect conditions. This plays a steady ~stream~ of white noise or music of their choice in soft headband form, which means even side sleepers won't have to wake up with sore ears.

20. Stasher reusable silicone bags that are leakproof, dishwasher-safe, and an eco-friendly alternative to their usual food storage solutions. That's right! No more unnecessary plastic being flung into the trash after exactly one sandwich contact.

21. A True Temp sheet set that will get a standing ovation from hot sleepers. Temp-regulating technology means they *won't* wake up drenched in sweat, plus they can wave those 3 a.m. "If I have one leg outside of the comforter...." thoughts goodbye. No more overheating.

22. An electric wine opener with a cordless, rechargeable design that uncorks bottles in a jiffy: They'll just have to press the button and 'tis done in only seven seconds. That $7 bottle of vino they purchased awaits, plus one single charge = enough power to open 80 bottles.

23. An Animal Crossing: New Horizons Edition of the Nintendo Switch, because the upkeep of their island is of utmost importance and it's basically all they've talked about for the last two years. No intended shade.

24. A wireless Bluetooth mic if they do not give a bleep about singing off-key. If they love screaming in falsetto to "Bohemian Rhapsody" or belting out Celine Dion on karaoke night, this will definitely become their new favorite thing. Ever.

25. A 6-quart Instant Pot pressure cooker capable of turning meal prep into something that is *le gasp* not difficult. This handy thing can make everything from golden lentil soup and mac 'n' cheese to chocolate lava cake and French toast. (Look at them! Turning into Betty Crocker!)

26. A daisy egg yolk separator so they no longer have to wing it post-crack — because raise your hand if you've ever bitten into a homemade macaron to realize the additional crunch was an egg shell that made its way into the batter. Get them this. They'll be eternally grateful.

27. A USB-powered cooling pad for anyone with a computer that overheats so often, their lap feels permanently warm. This can easily remedy that problem: It's equipped with three fans and is so lightweight, it feels like it's not even there.

28. A splurge-worthy Always Pan that surpasses even the excessive amount of Instagram hype it gets. This snazzy kitchen gadget replaces eight pieces of cookware, weighs only 3 pounds, comes with a steamer basket and spatula nester, and is *truly* nonstick.

29. A silicone popcorn maker capable of making 15 cups of popcorn in under four minutes. They'll just have to add in some kernels, ~pop~ it in the microwave, and their movie marathon feast is now ready to be devoured.

30. A pair of wool gloves with ~conductive threads~ placed at the index finger and thumb. In English? Their appendages won't need to freeze when they're waiting for the bus — they'll be able to scroll through TikTok in total warmth thanks to these texting-friendly accessories.

31. A durable water bottle that I own and have dubbed my personal "emotional support tumbler." If they're not sure what to say in that Zoom meeting? Take a sip. Hydration and hiding their awkwardness will have never gone hand-in-hand so *ahem* fluidly.

32. A 6-quart Vortex air fryer for making all of their favorite comfort foods — we're talking everything from wings and glazed donuts to charred Brussels sprouts and sesame chicken — *without* having to use hot oil. It's even great for crisping up leftovers!
