    2. An Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera they can use to snap pics and print 'em instantly. If they're the kind of person who loves a sentimental keepsake, they'll love having physical photos to look back on.

    3. Or an Instax Mini Link 2 Printer if they'd rather print the pics they've taken with their phone and be more ~selective~ about which ones see the light of day.

    4. A hand blender that'll make it easier for them to make *good* soup. It's cordless, which means they can emulsify their ingredients from any corner of their kitchen without getting tripped up by a cable.

    5. A glare-free Kindle Paperwhite that'll help them build the virtual library of their dreams. It's waterproof, so they can fearlessly use it while they're relaxing in the bath.

    6. A lululemon Everywhere Fleece Belt Bag that's as gosh darn cute as it is handy. It'll hold all their go-to thingamajigs and keep their hands free so they can safely beep-bop around town on their bike or walk their dog.

    7. A ceramic teapot they can use to brew their favourite cuppa this winter. It comes with a removeable infuser for their loose-leaf blends, too.

    8. A cushy exercise mat they can bust out when they want to get their sweat on. This thing is seriously grippy, meaning they won't slip and slide at their next yoga class (even if it's in a sauna).

    9. A fancy-shmancy knife sharpener that'll help them keep their blades in tip-top shape. It has three sharpening grits (including one for serrated knives), plus an adjustable knob that'll allow them to sharpen at all kinds of angles.

    10. An ergonomic seat cushion that'll make sitting at their desk feel like an entirely new (and seriously comfortable) experience. Reviewers say it's a total game-changer when it comes to easing aches and pains at the office or on long drives.

    11. A set of chic salad servers for the host that always does the most. Reviewers say they're the kind of utensils that never get put away because they're just so gosh darn nice to look at.

    12. A heated deep tissue massager for when they want to simply sit back, relax, and soothe their neck and shoulders. Reviewers say that this baby calms their ultra-tense traps like nothing else.

    13. A sleek diffuser that'll give the air around them a major refresh. It'll let them explore the benefits of aromatherapy with essential oils (and help them relax a little, too).

    14. A pair of stoneware mugs they'll be happy to sip their fresh coffee out of every morning. They're made by hand with multiple glazes, meaning no two are the same!

    15. An anti-fatigue floor mat if they tend to get sore while they're cooking or doing the dishes. It's waterproof, which will make cleaning up any drips and spills easy-breezy.

    16. A 12-piece dining set for the person who could use an upgrade from the hodgepodge of hand-me-down dishes they've been using since college.

    17. A glossy crossbody bag to accompany them on all of their outings this winter. Its strap is both adjustable and removable, in case they wanna swap between different ~lewks~.

    18. A digital thermometer that'll instantly tell them the internal temperature of whatever meat they're cooking. Its probe is teeny-tiny, so they won't lose too much juicy goodness when they poke away at their roast.

    19. An itty-bitty massage gun for anyone who may need a little TLC between RMT appointments. It comes with four different heads they can use to target all kinds of knots and sore spots.

    21. A mini Bluetooth speaker that, according to reviewers, will deliver powerful sound despite its itty-bitty size. With 15 hours of play time per charge, they'll be able to blast their fave tunes all day long.

    22. And finally, a memory foam knee pillow that'll make it a little easier for them to catch some proper z's. It comes with a removable strap, meaning it won't get dislodged no matter how much they may toss and turn.
