Promising review: "Not only is this book easy to read (just like the author's blog), but the tips and advice are out of this world. Yes, a lot of the brands that she calls her 'basics' are expensive, but go to any store or boutique and you can find similar styles for less. My new year's resolution has nothing to do with fitness, but rather upgrading my style and skincare/makeup routine, and this book was an awesome beginner's guide." —tatjana abell

Get it on Amazon for $18.81.


13. A set of just-add-tomato-juice Bloody Mary mixes for throwing brunch at their place.

Promising review: "Demitri's is the key ingredient in our favorite 'Red Beers' that we can usually only get at Red Robin restaurants. As a bartender for many years, I find it also makes the most superior tasting Bloody Mary! This mix is nearly impossible to find in any local store, so I decided to search Amazon to purchase some as a gift for my significant other. He was pleasantly surprised to receive it because he could finally enjoy his favorite 'Red Beers' at home. I foresee this bottle lasting a long time, since you only need a couple tablespoons of this concentrated seasoning mix combined with your choice of V-8 or tomato/clamato juice. Great value for the money and it stores longer as a concentrate (vs. a traditional Bloody Mary mix)." —Brianna Revard

Get the pack of four on Amazon for $32.25.

15. Some really, really good coffee.


16. A set of acrylic frame magnets so you can cover their fridge in Polaroids of your face, because don't let them think for a second that moving means they can forget you.

Compatible with Fuji Instax Mini 8/8+/70/7s/90/25/26/50s, Pringo P231, Instax SP-1/SP-2, Polaroid PIC-300/Z2300, Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer, LG PD233/239.

Get the set of five double-sided frames on Amazon for $12.99.

17. A set of classic hammered-copper mugs for Moscow mules.

Promising review: "The review is from a bartender of 10 years who has seen a lot of Moscow Mule copper mugs (everything from crappy to very high-end). I purchased these as a gift for my father's birthday. He loves them. I scoped them out before gifting them and found the quality for the price makes a great deal. Definitely recommend. Hand wash only so they don't get ruined." —Erin C. Kadzis

Get the set of four on Amazon for $23.99. Also available in a set of eight.


21. Stackable mason jar measuring cups for a little Southern charm.

23. Geometric ceramic and wire vessels that'll update their desk or vanity.
