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. 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.

the black mug

Promising review: "I love this portable ceramic mug! It's comfortable and cozy to hold because of the rubber lining that surrounds three-quarters of the ceramic. I like that the rubber also covers the bottom of the mug so that I can set it down on my desk without making a sound, but it's so nice to be able to sip from the ceramic at the top (if you take the lid off) because it feels like you're using a regular coffee mug (rather than a travel mug). It's incredibly convenient to be able to microwave it when you want to reheat your drink. All around I think it's worth the price." —elizabeth

3. A Dash mini waffle maker so user-friendly and fast, it may inspire them to replace that cereal bar with an actual sit-down breakfast. (Life advice: Don't be that TV character who grabs a single grape from a breakfast buffet and goes, "gotta run.") They'll just have to turn this baby on, pour in the batter, and it'll beep when ready.

Alexandra Napoli / BuzzFeed

This waffle maker heats up super quickly, is designed with nonstick pans, and is fairly no-frills: Just plug it in, pour some batter, and wait for the light to turn green. Waffles are ready in no more than five minutes.

Plus this comes with a neat little recipe book packed with recipes for hash browns, paninis, biscuit pizzas — basically a bunch of recipes that can be done using just this little waffle maker.

Promising review: "This thing is incredible. I just mix up a batch of waffle batter and keep it in the fridge and in the morning, I plug this in while pouring my coffee. It reaches temp in about a minute, and then I'll pour in the batter and about the waffle is done about another minute later." —Seanster

4. A third-generation Echo Dot that can do everything from play music and make calls to read the news and set alarms — all at the sound of their voice! Having the ability to send texts and shuffle playlists (all hands-free!) is about to completely change their life for the better.

the echo dot

Promising review: "I absolutely love it! Bought to use as a radio/ambient noise device as I fall asleep, but now realize the capabilities FAR exceeded what I initially purchased it for, so I also use it as an alarm clock, Bluetooth speaker for my iPad, personal assistant ('Alexa, add milk to my shopping list'), Amazon Music speaker (which I never used until buying this). The sound quality is really good, especially considering its small size and relatively budget-friendly price. I definitely recommend this to anyone, and if you’re a Prime member...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR! Don’t even 'add to cart,' just click 'buy now' and watch your life get simpler." —Dave S

The wand

Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you, PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

6. 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."

reviewer wearing the black leggings

Promising review: "The reviewer who says 'it's like wearing kittens on your legs' is spot on. Kittens, small teddy bears, whatever you want to call it — these leggings aren't lined with fleece — it's low-pile, stretchy faux fur. But you don't look like you gained 20 lbs. when you wear them. I went out to a concert on a miserably cold and windy February evening, with these leggings under a skirt. I'm terribly cold-blooded, and even I felt like, 'COME ON, WIND, BRING IT ON.' There's one potential negative: The seams around the crotch and butt are obvious. " —Amazon Customer

7. A quilted crossbody available in neutral hues, aka these babies will blend. right. in. with whatever 'fit they throw on. They can even remove the strap and voila! A fancy clutch is theirs for fancy dinners, wedding, etcetera.

Promising review: "Bought this on a whim because I needed a black bag for a night out. It arrived well packaged without any weird smells, and all the hardware is intact. It is super cute and I got a ton of compliments on it! The bag is deceptively large, I could fit my iPhone XR, two full sized body sprays from Bath & Body Works, several lip gloss tubes, and still had room for more. I was so impressed I went back and bought the brown too. Definitely worth the price and then some!" —Dee

8. 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.,

This heats up to 400° Fahrenheit, has dual voltage, which means you can use it internationally, uses tourmaline ceramic technology for maximum shine and minimum frizz, and even has an auto-shutoff feature.

Promising review: "I am addicted to buying stuff on Amazon but this is by far THE BEST thing I've ever bought. I don't have the patience to curl my hair with a regular curling iron and can't even manage to make one curl with my flat iron even though my hair stylist has showed me how like 20 times. This was SO easy! This iron gives you beautiful, wavy, sexy, beachy hair. It also gets pretty hot so if your hair is hard to curl, this will probably do the trick. I wish I had found this years ago! It's witchcraft." —Bodhi Stewart

9. 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.

the off white faux fur duvet set on a bed

One side is faux fur and the other side is plush velvet; the twin set comes with one pom-pom-fringed pillow sham, and other set sizes include two.

Promising review: "If my house caught on fire, this is the first thing I’d grab. But seriously, this is one of my favorite things in my whole house. I feel like it tied my entire room together. I get so many compliments on it and it seriously so cozy and well made. My only complaint would be how hard thing thing makes it to get out of bed in the mornings. It’s incredibly soft and isn’t the type of 'fur' that will mat and get gross-looking over time. I rely heavily on reviews when I buy things so I’m here to tell you — if you’re on the fence about buying it!! Also, the pillowcases are amazing also. Super soft and the pom-pom fringe is adorable." —SK

10. 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.

the match striker

Promising review: "Really love these practical (but also adorable, also chic, and also unique) match holders/strikers. They are just the right size to hold standard wooden matches and are small enough to tuck away by any candle (we have one in the bathroom and one in the guest bedroom). Really lovely product." —Jill Peterson 

Get it from Amazon for $24+ (available with or without matches).

11. 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.

Reviewer holding a bottle of "Dream" essential oil blend

Promising review: "Bought this to help on days when I have bad insomnia due to anxiety, especially during this pandemic. Can't say I like the scent of the oil alone right off the bat. It's pretty strong so you only need a few drops in the humidifier. But the first night I used it I had the best sleep of my life! Was knocked out fast and woke up feeling super refreshed!! Definitely recommend this product. It lasts well, too, so it's worth the price!" —Wendy

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

Psst — if they don't have a diffuser, you can get them a popular, well-reviewed essential-oil diffuser on Amazon for $14.99.

12. 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.

Urban Outfitters

13. 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.

Promising review: "This is a great product. We live in an old farmhouse and even though we have the fastest and highest internet service, we just couldn't get the signal throughout the entire house, or even our upstairs. But once we plugged in this range extender, we now have our 5G throughout the entire house and even the garage! It was super easy to install. No hassles. Easy-to-follow instructions." —Jennifer

14. 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.,

Promising review: "So glad I got this within two days! Was worried how much weight it could hold but it’s large and strong enough for heavier fruits like bananas and apples. The top basket is smaller and will not be as easy to reach so planning to find a cute plant to hang up. My apartment is compact so it’s a perfect storage addition in the corner of my kitchen. Just hanging it up makes it look more put together and gives it that home-sweet-home feel." —Amazon Customer

15. 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.

I own this personally and truly, truly, truly am not being dramatic when it's changed my life. Iced coffee no longer involves smacking an ancient blue tray against my sink in the hopes that one — just! one! — hunk of ice falls out.

16. 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.


It comes with everything they need to install their bidet in ~10 minutes! There's even a 60-day money-back guarantee — so if they absolutely hate bidet life, you can simply return and buy them, idk, a sweater or something.

Promising review: "This was our second Tushy! Our first was installed in our master bath. We just remodeled a guest bathroom and could not call it 'finished' without a Tushy in it. Once you get Tushy clean, nothing else will do!" —Teresa S.

Get it from Tushy for $99 (available in eight colors; originally $129).

Most shipping takes 2-5 days after processing.

17. A personalized floral stamp that I guarantee made any bibliophile casually scrolling through this list stop and gasp. Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves aren't in the realm of possibility just yet, but this delightful accessory puts their mark on any novel...guaranteeing that the books they've lent will safely make their way back to their personal library.

19. 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

20. 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

21. 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.

The HDMI stick and remote

Promising review: "After months and months of debate. I finally decided to drop cable and go 100% streaming. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner.This device provides you with many apps and ways to watch a lot of TV, movies, news, sports, and local programming. I haven't fully dug into all the apps. But so far I'm highly satisfied. The set up was easy and I can always find something to watch. I can't believe I was paying Comcast up to $200 monthly for the same shows." —Greg

23. 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.

Promising review: "This is amazing! I never knew I needed this until I purchased it! It is perfect for cutting wicks with ease. I always have a problem with my Bath & Body Works candles' wicks being to long and chunking up a bit, but not anymore!!" —Brittany

Promising review: "I love this headband. The band is comfortable in the head. Super easy to set up and connect to your phone, even on iPhones. The earphone can easily be adjusted and place right by your ears. Charging port is located on the rear end of the headband but you wouldn't even feel it existing. The sound quality is good.

the green bags

Promising review: "Eco-friendly. These bags go from freezer to oven. Seal really well. We put a bag full of homemade chili in the freezer and accidentally smashed it. When we went back later to pull it out and thaw, it was frozen solid (as intended), but with a dent in the middle from being squished when still unfrozen. The seal never broke. Can't get a better recommendation than that!" —Amzn custmer since 1999

Promising review: "I have been using these sheets for about a month now. What a difference they have made. No more waking up in the middle of the night sweating.

A graphic showing the foil-removing cap, and how the cork is removed

Promising review: "This is one of the coolest gadgets that I own now. I never knew that opening a corked bottle of wine could be so easy and so entertaining as well. No more old fashioned corkscrews for me! With the press of a button and about seven seconds this awesome automated device pulls the cork right out of the wine bottle. Not to mention, it has a very cool blue light that illuminated the cork as it’s being removed from the bottle. This may be the best $20 I’ve ever spent. Surprisingly this is made very well and the fact that it’s rechargeable really blows my mind. I used to own a similar device that took regular batteries, but I always seemed to be replacing them. With this, you don’t need to buy anything else other than more bottle of wine! If you’re contemplating purchasing one of these and you’ve read my review up until this point, stop reading now and go make the purchase. You won’t be sorry! Cheers!" —SocDiesel

It connects via Bluetooth so you can connect it to your phone — the music and your singing comes out of the microphone's speaker. It has a volume control for your voice and for the music and also an echo feature. You can put an SD card into the bottom of it and record yourself, or connect it with an audio out to record on one of those karaoke apps on your phone.

the silver and black Instant Pot

This Instant Pot is basically seven kitchen tools in one! It can be used as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, cake maker, and warmer! It can also sauté, because #fancy.

Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the 3-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the 8-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot." —Stereoman

Promising review: "Best purchase I have made in years. Only had it two days, but the first words out of my mouth to my wife were, 'I can work for hours like this.' If you work from home and like to work on the couch, recliner, breakfast nook, patio, etc. and you have your computer in your lap, this is an absolute must-have.

Promising review: "This is the best pan I have ever cooked with. The surface allows me to control the amount of olive oil used, the dome lid design is great for faster cooking without turning up the heat, and the pan itself is so beautiful I leave it out on my stove top as decoration. I am hoping they make a small sauté pan and a 3-qt saucepan some day." —Cheryl M.

Promising review: "Absolutely amazing! I am throwing out my old popcorn maker because there is no need for it anymore. I cannot believe how easy it was to make perfect popcorn and use the same bowl to eat it out of. I've already told all of my friends to buy this!" —Cindy Suy

39. 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!

"I've had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it's become the hero of my kitchen. It preheats quickly, it's large enough to a good amount of food at once, it's easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I've been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night and it makes them taste so good. If you're cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don't get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don't mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there's no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn't believe I made this at home!!"" —Hannah Loewentheil
