    1. A pair of in-your-face combat boots for the friend who doesn't step around slush puddles, but stomps right on through 'em.

    The boots in black plaid

    The combat booties look like traditional lace-ups, but a side zipper makes them much, much easier to kick on and off. Reviewers say they run a bit large, so consider sizing down.

    Promising review: "Awesome alternative to expensive Dr. Martens. These boots are very stylish and very comfortable. I love them!!" —Hoodie269

    Price: $48.65+ (originally $69.50; available in women's sizes 5–11 and five colors/patterns)

    2. An enameled Dutch oven from the cooking and crafting queen herself, Martha Stewart. The 4-quart beauty will inspire your own foodie to whip up stews, casseroles, and whatever viral dishes surface on their TikTok feed.

    The Dutch oven in yellow

    The enameled cast-iron pan is safe to use with gas and electric stoves as well as on glass and induction stovetops.

    Promising review: "OMG!! I love love love this. I have been wanting to own a Dutch oven for forever. The heat distributed so evenly and I just like to look at it at times. What a beautiful addition to my kitchen. It looks exactly like the picture and so much more." —Farhana

    Price: $79.99 (originally $159.99; available in six colors)

    3. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro ready to play hours and hours of whatever it is your giftee enjoys most. The accompanying charging case delivers 24 full hours of playtime, or — if your mind works like mine — enough juice to play the entirety of Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia 38 times.


    The sweat- and water-resistant pods feature active noise cancellation as well as transparency mode for when you want to hear more of what's going on around you. Obvi the earbuds connect easily to Apple devices and Siri is on standby to answer any questions.

    Promising review: "I really like the AirPods Pro. They are a huge improvement over my other AirPods. They don't fall out of my ears like the first pair. The sound is very good too — great at cancelling out noise." —Sherry

    Price: $249

    4. A cheese-making kit for the friend whose food pyramid is made up of cheddar, gouda, brie, mozzarella, and feta. Are they also lactose intolerant? Most definitely. But we all want what we can't have.

    Packaging for all components of the cheese making kit

    The Brooklyn Brew Shop kit comes with enough ingredients to make eight batches of mozzarella, burrata, ricotta, or mascarpone, so they'll have no excuse not to share!

    What's Included: Cheese basket, cheese thermometer, cheese cloth, vegetable rennet, citric acid, cheese salt.

    Price: $30

    5. A good ol' game of Cat-Opoly for the board game nerd who's also o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d. with their cat. The game works like classic Monopoly except properties are out and rare breeds (see: abyssinians, tonkineses, and Turkish vans) are in.

    The Cat-Opoly game with its cards and tokens laid out

    A word of warning: Participants will have to put up a fight for the best token. Options include a ball of yarn, cat food, a milk bottle, mouse, fish, and, my personal favorite: a cracked-open tin of sardines.

    Promising review: "If the person you are buying this for digs felines and loves Monopoly, they will love this game. It's fun, not cheaply made and engaging. The play pieces are clever and cat themed, and the game is well presented. My ten year old grandson loved it and (importantly) we liked and enjoyed it too." —Sandy

    Price: $26.99

    6. A pair of cozy Adidas joggers in case your roommate/live-in partner needs a more obvious hint that they should wear pants when you have guests over.

    The joggers in black/white

    Promising reviews: "I bought this for a Christmas present for my husband. He found them early and is already wearing them. They look awesome on him and he loves them." —Cappy

    "I'm wearing them as I'm writing this review, and they are by far the most versatile pants I own. You can run, play tennis, ski, or just chill in them. I would highly recommend you buy these things, dawg." —Branman

    Price: $30 (originally $40; available in men's sizes S–2XL and seven colors)

    7. A self-watering planter for the succulent lover who can barely down enough H2O themselves. The felt tongues suck up ~just~ enough water for plants to thrive and once they've outgrown their adorable lil' pots, they can be replanted.


    The teensy cat planter comes with wild strawberry seeds while the puppy comes with clover seeds.

    Price: $14.50 (also available in dog form)

    8. A pair of Ugg slippers, because outdoor shoes are so 2019 and fluffy footwear never disappoints – just ask Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Cardi B, and every other celeb who owns these bad boys.

    The Uggs in lava flow multi

    Promising review: "Since I bought these I've worn them at least once every week. They're so comfy and I can just grab them and go. I wear them with everything and I love that they have a slight platform as I am a heel girl. I have purchased three pairs for friends as well! IMO, they're holding up well. They have developed a foot print as I wear them so much but that doesn't bother me. Now if you're not careful you can roll your ankle a little bit but just take your time when walking on uneven ground as you would with any shoe. I highly recommend." —Gabby

    Price: $100 (available in women's sizes 6–11 and five colors)

    9. A set of sloth picture hangers so they can string up all of your best selfies. You know, the ones where they're positively glowing and your eyes are totally closed. 🙃

    Three sloth hangers on the vine

    Each pack comes with six sloths and a 36-inch "vine" which can be strung up with push pins.

    Price: $12

    10. A midi-length coat with the power to transform any tired wardrobe. It'll go with literally anything but if your friend has a penchant for Dr.'ll really outdo itself.

    A model wearing the coat

    Price: $89.99 (available in women's sizes 16–24)

    11. A host-your-own escape room game so for a moment, your giftee can forget they've *actually* been trapped in their own home for the last nine months.

    All of the components of the escape room game

    Game players will find themselves trapped inside a cinema in Tokyo and they must solve a series of riddles and clues in order to escape in 60 minutes or less. The game is recommended for those 16+ but it is considered moderate so escape room newbs are welcome!

    What's Included: One clue file, 40 notepad sheets, 45 game play clues and props, one interactive ending, and one photo booth frame.

    Price: $45

    12. A mini llama waffle maker because it's just too dang cute, you know?? And in the words of Leslie Knope, “We need to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.”


    The adorable appliance makes 4-inch mini waffles that don't require any flipping or fuss. Once the indicator light goes off, just pull out the waffle and you're done.

    Promising review: "So cute. Love the color and quality is great especially at this price. I’m buying more for stocking stuffers!" —Rachel

    Price: $9.99 (originally $19.99)

    13. A five-pack of Tony Moly sheet masks made to address a series of skin woes from dryness to dullness. A facial is v, v expensive, but this five-piece set is not!

    All five masks

    You won't find any parabens, talc, color additives, or other unnecessary ingredients here; just soothing elements like pearl, rose, cactus, green tea, and lotus extract.

    What's Included: I'm Rose Sheet Mask - Vitalizing, I'm Cactus Sheet Mask - Purifying, I'm Pearl Sheet Mask - Luminating, I'm Green Tea Sheet Mask - Skin Purifying, I'm Lotus Sheet Mask - Luminating.

    Promising review: "I am already big fan of Tony Moly sheet masks sooo...yes, it may be a biased review, but for good reason. I like how they work on my skin. Obviously, to each their own because everyone's skin is different, but I love this set because it gives you a chance to explore the most effective sheet mask for your skin needs. I happen to like the rose and green tea to clear up my skin. The rose smells great and the green tea is magic for my skin. Additionally, waking up to youthful, moisturized skin is a plus. I do have to note that the cactus one is a bit sticky for my liking." —Jmoonyg

    Price: $15

    14. A blanket wrap for the loved one who is always cold and insists on touching you with their frigid feet just to prove it. (It's me — I'm that person.)


    Promising review: "Out of the box and on my back! It's kept me warm and cozy through the first major snowstorm in the frigid Midwest. Very nice material, just the right weight, it is made well and very plush. What the photo doesn't show is that it's tailored in the back and longer, like a groomsman's tail. Nice for sitting down and covering your caboose. The material has not shed on anything I've worn underneath." —Joan

    Price: $18.99 (originally $50; available in three patterns)

    15. A meat-and-cheese set from Harry & David because when all else fails, adult Lunchables are where it's at. Plus, you can count on them for a charcuterie board at your next game night.

    The seven-piece meat and cheese set

    The set includes an enticing mix of rich and savory picks including hickory-smoked summer sausage, Thuringer sausage, garlic jack cheese, pepper Jack cheese, gouda cheese, olive oil and sea salt water crackers, and honey hot mustard.

    Promising review: "OMG! I love everything whats included in this box. I tried the Gouda cheese, summer sausage and the crackers so far and they tasted fresh and delicious. I would definitely buy this product again. So good, thank you!" —MileHighShopper

    Price: $54

    16. A Froot Loop-scented candle that will both delight and confuse. Since the soy candle comes in a real cereal bowl with a real spoon, it's quite the conversation starter.

    Three of the candles

    Promising review: "My family loves these! They were supposed to be Christmas gifts but I couldn’t wait to give them." —Joyce

    Price: $35

    17. A beginner's matcha set because you know your bestie spends a small fortune at Starbucks (case in point: the 27 empty venti cups rolling around their passenger seat floor).

    All components of the tea set

    FYI: The kit doesn't actually come with matcha itself, so if your giftee has a favorite, pick that up separately!

    What's Included: Bowl, spatula, bamboo whisk, detailed instructions.

    Price: $68.95

    18. A soil-less AeroGarden so your recipient can cultivate their very own countertop plot. If they've been known to neglect a plant or two, they'll also appreciate that the unit reminds them when to water and feed their herbs!

    The AeroGarden full of fresh herbs

    The compact unit comes with six soil-free pods — Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil — as well as Miracle-Gro plant food. To make things even easier, the AeroGarden's energy-efficient LEDs lights turn on and off automatically.

    Promising review: "I got this as a gift and am absolutely love it! Living in a cold climate it is nice to have fresh herbs year-round. I am currently trying the mountain meadows flower seed kit to bring a little sunshine to my home during the fall/winter. Easy to use and set up and the plant trimmings will continue to live in a vase of water for weeks after harvest!" —Anonymous

    Price: $99.99 (originally $214.99)

    19. A cold brew coffee maker destined to make pitchers and pitchers of caffeine-laced, concentrated goodness. A single carafe makes 1.7 liters of cold brew, so once mixed with their choice of water or milk, they'll nearly a week's worth of java.

    The coffee maker full of cold brew

    Promising review: "Nice tight lid, made of glass but light to carry and does not take up much space in the fridge. This is a game-changer for any coffee drinker. Highly recommended." —Sara

    Price: $24.99

    20. An UNO deck that'll impress your artsiest friend with its iconic Keith Haring designs. The game is the same, just jazzed up with some '80s-inspired graffiti.


    Price: $19.99

    21. A 2-quart electric air fryer capable of making a bloomin' onion to rival Outback's. This is a journey I've personally been on, but if your friend is looking to recreate any fast food greats (sans a vat of oil), this right here will get it done.

    The air fryer in aqua sky matte

    With 1,200 watts of power, the appliance can air fry, broil, bake, roast, and reheat with the best of 'em. The temperature can be adjusted between 175 degrees F to 400 degrees F and Bella's "High Performance Circular Heat Technology" swirls the heat around so everything evenly cooks and crisps.

    Promising review: "This air fryer is a great size! Doesn't take up much counter space, and easy to put away. Most importantly, it is VERY easy to use. This is the second air fryer I have owned (another brand), and I can really see the differences in how much easier this one is. Food is excellent, and I love how it doesn't take up much counter space (plus I love the pink). Would definitely recommend!" —ECK2020

    Price: $39.99 (originally $51.99; available in four colors)

    22. A Sharper Image aromatherapy wrap that'll soothe muscle pain with its natural lavender, spearmint, and chamomile mix. If your friend has terrible posture thanks to working on their laptop from bed, this'll come in clutch.

    A model using the wrap in purple

    The wrap can be heated up in the microwave or cooled down in the freezer depending on your friend's preference. You know we stan a versatile product.

    Promising review: "Fell in love after my first use; it has just the right weight and fragrance mixture for aromatherapy — not too potent and a mix of natural, soothing oils. One minute in the microwave and it's warm enough to relax tight muscles, love the fact that it wraps around your neck — relaxing those muscles without having to use smelly creams that turn icy or hot is heaven." —Christina

    Price: $14.99 (originally $29.99; available in two colors)

    23. A 3-quart beer tower so your IPA-loving companion can kick back like they're at their favorite biergarten. To really round out the experience, consider throwing in some jumbo soft pretzels and spicy mustard.

    The beer tower with a spigot and ice rod

    A weighted base keeps the tower from being knocked over by clumsy hands and a detachable ice rod (which can be cooled in any freezer) keeps pours nice and cold.

    Promising review:"Gave this to my uncle for Christmas. He and my wife watch football every Sunday all day. They loved using it so they don't have to leave the living room for beer. He was so excited when he opened it. Ice rod in the middle keeps beer cool but does not water it down. Great gift!" —Nette

    Price: $49.99 (originally $99.99)

    24. A portable Bluetooth speaker capable of turning their shower into an EDM-fueled dance party. For just a moment, they'll forget they're in Cleveland and not at the Electric Daisy Carnival.


    The waterproof Bluetooth speaker has a range of 60 feet (generous for such a small device!) and 2.5 hours of battery life (when played at full volume). An attached carabiner means it's also great for frequent campers, beachgoers, and travelers.

    Promising review: "The sound is amazing for a small speaker at a very reasonable price. I like it so much I bought a second one as a gift for a friend. I only wish I had found it sooner." —Steve21e

    Price: $18.99 (originally $22.99)

    25. A pair of crisp Reebok kicks sure to become their footwear of choice. If they've run their Stan Smiths into the ground, these will be much appreciated.

    Side view of the sneakers with Reebok written in green

    Promising review: "These are my first pair of Reeboks and I have to say that I’m so impressed! These are some of my most stylish and now most favorite shoes, they go with everything and I can wear them all day very comfortably!!!! 12/10 recommend." —Anonymous

    Price: $70 (available in men's sizes 8–13)

    26. And pair of otter ornaments because ever since you found out that they sleep holding hands, just thinking about it makes you tear up and same goes for thinking about being apart from your long-distance BFF.

    The otter ornaments

    Keep one for yourself and send one their way or give it to your favorite couple.

    Price: $18
