    Price: $19.99

    8. A Homesick candle that smells like their home state.


    For example, Colorado smells like spruce needles and spice with elements of melting snow, cedar, sandalwood, and hints of amber and cinnamon.

    Price: $29.95

    9. Rainbow Jenga, a great purchase for design lovers and game masters alike.


    Promising review: "I’m very pleased! Smooth-quality paint with solid, heavy wood blocks. Nice colors. Purchased two (for more block options) and wrote on them with a Sharpie to make a custom family game. Love the idea of the colored dice as an added twist. This was a great purchase! Might order another to create a drinking game ;)” —Imneuse

    Price: $10.19

    10. A sassy oven mitt for the best effing chef you know.


    This oven mitt comes in a ton of different designs with hilarious phrases and adorable illustrations.

    Price: $12.99 (available in 14 designs)

    11. A spirit infusion kit so they can make some flavored vodka that tastes better than Burnett's.


    If just seeing the word "Burnett's" didn't make your stomach flip, I'm honestly impressed. The kit comes with a 110-page recipe book, 1000mL infusion jar, 750mL liquor bottle, funnel, strainer, and chalkboard tag.

    Promising review: "Even though there is such a huge market for infused and flavored spirits, there isn't a single one out there that actually tastes good enough to call it an infusion. The best kinds of cocktails are ones that are homemade with your own ingredients and skills. This kit is perfect for just that. It has everything you need to make it happen. I've made some infusions myself that taste amazing but I always had to try and look around for some equipment that would work. Having everyone in one kit makes life easier. What an awesome idea!" —Jonathan Weisenbeck

    Price: $39.95

    12. An assortment of nuts that walnut fail to impress this holiday season.


    It has walnuts, almonds, cashews, pralenes, pistachios, and mixed nuts.

    Price: $26.99

    13. Photosynthesis — a beautiful strategy game for the game-lover who needs to ~branch~ out.


    Basically you're growing trees. Each player starts with two. The trees absorb light and get light points, which can be used to disperse seeds. There is a "sun" rotating around the board, so players have to time and position everything properly to get the most sunlight.

    Promising review: "Don't be fooled by the beautiful artwork, or the adorable little illustrated animals hidden within the components, Photosynthesis is a vicious abstract strategy game, and it's probably the best use of thematic gameplay for any tabletop game in 2017, worthy of being equated with other top tier uses of theme in designing gameplay, such as Shadows Over Camelot, Blood Rage, and just about anything produced by Fantasy Flights." —Paul Bulger

    Price: $34.40

    14. A set of brain specimen coasters for scientists, doctors, and...weirdos.


    Weirdos like me! Gimme, gimme!

    Price: $20.79

    15. A coffee table book filled with photos of dogs mid-treat snatch. Need I say more?


    Price: $12.23

    16. A book of letters you can fill in and send to them in bulk. Each one is meant to be opened at a certain time, so it's the gift that keeps on giving.


    Each letter has a prompt like "open when you're having a bad day" or "open when you're doubting youreself." It's a great way to be there for them, even when you're not actually around.

    Price: $12.62

    17. A sweet lil corgi planter ready to keep their mini succulent safe.


    Price: $8.99

    18. A gorgeous 16-piece ceramic cookware set in a beautiful shade for turquoise for the person who just moved into a new home.


    You can also get it in red, lavender, and black.

    Price: $85.99

    19. A little game called Monikers that will lead to some competitive game nights with the family, and possibly some screaming.


    Good screaming! This game is basically Celebrities, but with cute illustrations. Basically, each person gets to pick cards to go into the game deck. Then each team has an allotted amount of time to guess the nouns on the cards. There are three rounds: First the player can explain it (like in Taboo), then the player can use one word, and then the player can only act it out (like Charades). It's a great game to play when you know your teammates and how they think.

    Price: $25

    20. A big ole' haul of scrunchies. Imagine how satisfying it would be to swim in a pool of scrunchies.


    Price: $15.35 for 36

    21. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker so they can make fresh popcorn at home, no greasy bags needed.


    Price: $16.97+ (available in four colors)

    22. An unfairly adorable instant camera from Kodak that prints out photos with adhesive backs. Instant stickers of all their friends? You should snap one up for everyone on your list.


    I've never wanted an instant camera until seeing this one. It's too cute not to want!

    Promising review: "If your expectations are realistic for this reasonably priced item, you will be happy. $70 (+$0.50/photo paper sheet) is, in my book, reasonable for a camera/printer in one, considering that there is never a need to purchase toner, and there is the option for a Mini SD/ability to save digitally. I think the manufacturer photos/videos are realistic, they make no claims to great photo quality — the best thing about this camera is the fun, instant factor. The photo quality will seem subpar, in comparison to the excellent cameras we are all used to now on our smartphones, but in good lighting (especially outdoors), the color/picture is good." —msrei

    Price: $69.95 (available in six colors)

    23. A festive tea gift set so fancy, you'll have to deliver it to them with your pinky out.


    Each gold tin has a different loose tea: Maharaja oolong, ginger, and sweet cinnamon. This is one of Oprah's favorite things of 2018!

    Price: $29.99

    24. A one line a day journal for busy people who wish they had the time to write in a diary every day. Newsflash: They do!


    This cutie pie has a puffy cover, colorful pages, and a bookmark ribbon. There's a whole series of these cool journals: classic, mom, celestial, floral, and modern.

    Basically they write one line in the journal every day for a year. The following year, they go back to the beginning and write another line. The journal lets them compare with past years to see how they've changed and grown. See BuzzFeed's full review on why this journal is so good.

    Price: $15.26

    25. A bottle of spicy honey sure to add some zip to their hot toddies, pizzas, margaritas, salads, cheese plate, ice cream... do I need to keep going?


    Price: $11.39

    26. A shot glass mold for frosty ice shots that go down easier OR for candy shots the whole family can enjoy.


    Very seriously considering getting this so I can make some peppermint shots to fill with Bailey's this Christmas.

    Promising review: "I bought this mold to make shot glasses out of hard candy (I used Jolly Ranchers). It works really well for that...and chocolate...and jello...and gummy bears. It's a lot of fun. I would definitely make a first batch before depending on it for guests on the first run. The instructions on the package don't specifically say that you can put this mold in the oven (though the amazon description does), but I have not had any issues with putting them in the oven at all. For my hard candy shot glasses, I just preheated the oven to 350 degrees, filled the mold with candies and put them in for about 11 minutes. After I took them out, I just used the back of a spoon to work the air bubbles out toward the edges so that everything came out smooth. Chocolate is much easier to melt and get the air bubbles out and wouldn't even require the oven (though I'll bet you could)." —Holly C.

    Price: $8.41

    27. A felt letter board for tonight's dinner menu, welcoming guests, or just sassy sayings.


    Price: $18.99+ (available in three sizes and 16 colors)

    28. A state map they can fill in with various bottle caps so they can keep track as they ~hop~ from one brewery to the next.


    Promising review: "Love it! Great quality and customer service. I spray painted it gold, which worked out great. I had been looking for a cool way to display my bottle cap collection, and this is perfect." —Josh and Heather Folsom

    Price: $35.99 (available in all 50 states)

    29. A colorful pack of reusable straws that's also a gift for the turtles. Weirdly, they didn't get you anything. Shellfish jerks!


    Price: $7.99 for 12 (or get glittery ones)

    30. Insulated heart mugs so cute, they'll warm even the Grinchiest of hearts.


    Price: $22.97

    31. A sleek letter necklace that could easily pass for something from Anthropologie. EASILY.


    They'll be like "oh wow thanks, where is this beauty from?" and you can say "oh... just little little boutique I found called Bezos's Closet."

    Price: $9.99

    32. And a Nintendo Switch, because it's never too late to completely win Christmas.


    I have a Switch and love it very, very much. Breath of the Wild is hands-down the greater game I have ever played. It's currently sold out, but other great games to consider are: Mario Kart 8, Snipperclips, and the brand new Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. There's also plenty of indie games that can be downloaded right onto the system like Golf Story, Undertale, Stardew Valley, and Celeste. The console comes with one Jon-Con that can be taken apart to become two controllers. It also comes with a Joy-Con grip, HDMI cable, Joy-Con straps, dock, and AC adapter.

    Price: $299
