1.A shampoo and conditioner set to nip brassiness in the bud. The violent pigment in this formula works to wash away unwanted yellow in your 'do, meaning you can extend the time between salon visits meaning you can SAVE A TON OF MONEY. Easy + affordable? Someone pinch me.
2.A 12-pack of gel pens you could only dream of owning in middle school: Half of the pack is glitter, half of the pack is neon, *all* of the pack will turn doodling into even more fun.
3.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.
4.An oil-free, soap-free La Roche-Posay foaming gel to kick both your acne and your oily t-zone to the curb. For a matte complexion that stays matte throughout the entire day, this morning and night cleanser is destined to become your new holy grail.
5.A portable borosilicate glass mug equipped with a removable stainless steel tea strainer and a leak-proof to-go lid. Plus, it's in the shape of a darn cat! I dare you to find me anything better to sip your tea from.
6.A cult-favorite Orolay parka to help you thrive through even the most frigid of winters. Designed with a sherpa-lined hoodie, deep pockets, and the perfect midi length to make sure your ~assets~ are covered, you'll often find themselves wondering how you survived the cold without it.
7.Tequila Mockingbird, a cocktail book that features over 65 drink recipes and gorgeous illustrations with a literary twist: Get ready to make a "Romeo and Julep", "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margarita", and "The Pitcher of Dorian Grey Goose".
8.A paper model of the Grand Budapest Hotel sure to make the heart of any Wes Anderson fan flutter (#me). This even comes packaged in a Mendl's box you will obviously also treasure forever and ever.

11.A Thomas Kinkade 2020 wall calendar packed with beautiful illustrations to both infuse your life with the magic of Disney *and* make it easier to keep track of the date.
12.An ergonomic mirror cube puzzle to give yourself a piece of art that looks like it was sourced from an upscale modern art museum. You'll be using this on your long train commute from now until forever, because the puzzle itself is super challenging (but also super rewarding once completed).
13.A microfiber dusting and polishing mitt with a design so great, it's possible you'll actually feel motivated to pick up the dust currently residing in your home. In fact, it'll no longer feel like a prob-llama.
14.A cruelty-free Milani eyeshadow palette reviewers hail as their favorite drugstore find. This palette is available in four styles that range from matte to shimmery, all of which are super pigmented, blendable, and feel a *lot* more expensive than they actually are.
15.A cult-favorite (LOL) Squatty Potty that currently has over 10,000 reviews on Amazon. What is the purpose of it, you ask? It enables your body to mimic a squatting position that turns *ahem* longer bathroom breaks into a much easier affair.

18.A pen-to-paper mousepad that lets you jot down important details, meeting times, doc apportionment reminders, and the list truly goes on. Just remove the sheet when the week is over (the pen won't bleed through the pages) when Monday is back and you have to start anew.
19.A buffer block capable of turning your nail beds into a clean canvas free of polish stains. It takes just three easy steps; file, smooth, and shine. The result is heathy, glowing nail beds that look like they were given a fresh coat of clear polish (and probably drink a ton of water on the daily).
20.A V-neck shift dress that can be paired with some booties or heels for a more dressed up vibe (or worn with a pair of white kicks, if that is what your heart desires).
21.A buildable L'Oreal waterproof mascara that not only adds volume and length to your lashes, but it also does the unthinkable — and by unthinkable, I mean it won't smudge by mid-afternoon and create the dreaded ~panda eye~ effect. Like, I already have dark circles. I don't need mascara to enhance them.
22.A Cadbury box packed with 12 full-sized chocolate bars. The best gifts to yourself are ones that are edible, and what better of an edible gift than this delicious UK treat?
23.A vegan, cruelty-free, travel-sized Handmade Heroes tinted dry shampoo specifically formulated for darker hair. This will sweep up all that grease *without* leaving a white cast on your scalp (something that often happens on brunette manes).
24.A leak-proof champagne stopper that will keep your favorite beverage as fizzy as the day it was popped. This built-in pressure pump preserves bubbles and therefore preserves the champagne, meaning it won't go to waste if you don't finish the entire bottle on the day it's opened. Now without further ado, can I get a mimosa please?
25.Reusable metal drinking straws for anyone looking to make eco-friendly choices that cut down on plastic waste *and* prevent their teeth from getting those dreadful coffee stains. These are perfect for both hot or iced caffeine, plus are just really darn pretty.
26.An oil-free Physicians Formula serum that contains goji and kakadu plum (ingredients that contain your daily skincare dose of antioxidants and vitamin c). This combo will give your complexion a healthy, dewy glow and wears well under makeup.
27.Control-top opaque tights because it is no longer summer and wearing skirts sans stocking during chilly weather = a shivering you. Reviewers swear that these stockings are comfortable, truly opaque, and surprisingly durable (AKA no more rips after .5 seconds of wear).
28.A slouchy beanie so they can don some Quidditch house pride whilst also keeping their muggle noggin warm.
29.A Wilton pan so you can make the only dessert you'll want this season: cookie and milk shots. This non-stick, dishwasher-safe tool will have you saying bottoms up in no time.
30.A fitted turtleneck available in the only hue you'll want in your closet: black. This ultra versatile piece is plain enough to be worn casually but can easily be dressed up by a pair of heels, good denim, and the statement earrings you purchased on clearance but have yet to wear.
31.A Darth Vader device holder that means one of your most prized possessions will have to join the dark side but hey, at least it'll finally have a permanent place to call home (no more flinging it into the dusty corners of your TV stand).
32.New York Street Style, a coloring book packed with detailed illustrations of iconic NY fashion...that is, all kinds of fashion. Prepare to doodle within the lines of joggers and updos to heels and the fancy coffee shops that see every trend come in and out of it's doors.
33.A marble lap desk designed with a device ledge, phone holder, and mouse pad to turn their bed into a fully-functional home office. It's even equipped with a bottom cushion so it feels super comfortable all day long, even if they plan on being on their computer for a ridiculous amount of hours.
34.Danskin bootcut yoga pants that reviewers swear one can wash an approximate 130000 times, and they'll consistently emerge from the laundry room looking just as they did when they were first ripped out of their packaging.
35.An insulated coffee mug with a stainless steel interior that I can already ~picture~ me using every single day. A clever mug disguised as a camera lens = the best gift I'll give to myself all decade.
36.A DIY mask kit so you can whip up your own skincare routine in no time: a mixing bowl, gauges, a sponge, a brush, a spray bottle, and a small storage jar are all included! This even comes with an application spatula so you can easily apply that homemade product without getting your hands dirty.
37.A playing card set complete with some of the most badass women throughout history, including icons like Wilma Rudolph and Sacagawea. (It should be noted that the cards themselves are also beautifully illustrated by artist Zeb Wahls, so I wouldn't blame you if you opted for framing this deck instead of playing it.)
38.Ultra soft knit gloves you won't have to slip off whilst using your cellphone due to touchscreen capability. Hallelujah for accessories that mean not having to sacrifice Instagram scrolling in order to avoid frostbite!
39.A push pin holder for anyone who loves pomegranate but hates that it's seasonal. Incorporate your favorite fruit into your daily life 365 days of the year all while keeping important notes, doodles, and what have you's organized and on display.
40.Color Street polish strips you simply press on, file, and go — no drying time required. Plus, they're available in a whole host of designs which make it perfect for anyone who *wants* one of those fancy manicures they've seen on Instagram, but can't fork over that kind of cash (#ONEDAY).
