    1. A leather saddlebag purse for the fashionable friend who's always on the go.

    Promising review: "Phenomenal quality product. It’s a true handmade piece with a wonderful vintage feel. Yes. You will have to actually fasten the buckle as it’s a functional piece, but I don’t feel that this takes away from the bag at all. I use it almost every weekend." —maryellen

    Price: $44.95 from Leather Native

    2. A concrete and gold ring holder they'll like so much ... they'll put a ring on it.

    Promising review: "I love this so much! I just got engaged and have been trying to figure out the best way to temporarily but safely set my ring down when cooking or cleaning without having to go put it in its ring box every time. I happened upon these concrete rings holders and immediately fell in love. They are a perfect size, amazing price, and such a stylish and modern look that matches my decor. Now that I have received this, I am likely going to buy more for other areas in the house. Thank you so much for a wonderful handmade item!" —ChristineSD

    Price: $17 from Made by Deborah

    3. A soap that resembles (and I mean, really resembles) a fast food snack for the unapologetic Mickey D's person in your life.,

    Price: $11.95 (nuggets and sauce, left) or $12.99 (hamburger, right) from Crazy Mama's Soaps and More

    Price: $33.75 (eyeglass steampunk mug, left) or $33.75 (eyelash mug, right) from

    Nelson Studio Pottery

    6. A set of color-organized books so they can take the perfect shelfie. Finally!

    Promising review: "Book came in great shape! They are real books, colors are bright and exactly what I asked for. The owner of the company was quick on responding to my questions and helpful. I am using these books for center pieces for my baby shower then will display the books in her bedroom! I recommend this company for sure!" —Victoria

    Price: $6+ (available in sets of 1-25 and in 16 colors or "custom") from Covogoods

    7. A crocheted cactus throw pillow for the plant enthusiast who (bless 'em) can't manage to keep any of their plants alive.

    8. A bamboo fish light that'll add a wacky and modern flair to their apartment.

    9. A bourbon lip balm for the whiskey lover who wouldn't mind a scent trail lingering on them all day long.

    Promising review: "Fantastic lip balm, I genuinely hate sweet flavored lip balms, and the plain ones are too boring; so this one is perfect. It smells of bourbon without coming off alcoholic. I had dry, chapped, and, frankly, gross lips when it arrived and now, two days later, I'm doing great. I also like the barrel shape — it's flatter and wider than more lip balms, so it better fits in my pocket." —Caitlin Egan

    Price: $7.79 from The Little Flower Soap Co

    10. A Game of Thrones music box that'll play the opening theme music to get them pumped up for the final season.

    Promising review: "It's fantastic, especially for the price. Works great and is quite charming, especially for any GoT fan. But in particular I would like to extol their AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE! Not that I had ANY problems with the order, but they included a personalized card and a handwritten note making certain I was completely satisfied with my purchase (and obviously I was). This is clearly a business that cares deeply about the quality of their work and the happiness of their customers. Highly recommend and look forward to ordering from them again." —Christopher Harris

    Price: $17.85 from esdemusicashop music boxes

    11. A vintage-style print of a hops plant for them to hang above their home bar.

    Promising review: "This print is great quality! It's glossy, but not too glossy and looks great in a frame. The resolution is high so you can see the details very well. Makes for good, subtle home bar artwork." —Mar-Bar

    Price: $12.99 from Personalized Signs by Lone Star Art

    12. A personalized bobblehead figurine that is sure to alarm them with its accurate rendering.

    13. A set of geometric air plant holders that'll elevate their plant display.

    Promising review: "Cute shape, good size. I got the matte white as a gift for someone. She will only be getting two because I liked them a lot. I ordered another set in copper. Bet that gift will be short at least one, too 😊" —Amazonaphile

    Price: $35.39 (for three) from Redwood Stoneworks

    14. Or a concrete planter they can use to display succulents and small plants.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this!! I bought it for my patio table, filled it with sand to put mosquito sticks in, and it is absolutely beautiful and gets a lot of great comments. I'm going to end up buying more (they have various sizes) because I love it so much." —Terp

    Price: $43 from The Savvy Heart

    15. A tortilla press that's so nice to look at they'll probably want to leave it out on the counter when they're done pressing.

    Promising review: "This is a truly well designed piece of kitchen equipment. I started looking for a new tortilla press because the one that I have (metal, pretty inexpensive) does not make flat tortillas — they end up looking like wedges, and try as I might, I cannot make them nice and flat. I found this one on Amazon and emailed the artisan who creates them. He explained to me what width of tortilla to expect and how he ensures that the tortilla will be flat. Basically, it is well designed and will make consistently thin tortillas (about 1/16 of an inch or 2mm) every time. The press is beautifully made and works perfectly every single time. I like it so much that I keep it on my counter all the time. Making tortillas is so easy now that I do it even on weeknights for dinner. I cannot speak highly enough of this product or the excellent customer service I received by Jason of Central Coast Woodworks." —Claudia Guerrero

    Price: $79.99 from Central Coast Woodworks

    16. Watermelon-scented slime with foam beads for the friend who's a kid at heart.

    Promising review: "I purchased this slime for my daughter's birthday. My daughter loves slime and said that this one is perfect. It is a great color, has the right consistency, and smells amazing. In fact my daughter has had this slime for a month and it looks and feels the same as the day we got it. Would definitely purchase again." —Cori T

    Price: $14.95 from Tropical Slime

    17. A laser-cut keepsake box with ginkgo leaves to help them tidy up their jewelry collection or workspace.

    Price: $109 from Cardtorial

    18. A classy, wooden dog bed for the person who considers a gift for their dog a gift for themself.

    19. A Dead Sea mud soap bar with peppermint to give them a deeply nourishing wash.

    Promising review: "This natural soap has a nice peppermint aroma to it. It also lathers so well. The look might throw you off at first but I'm only speaking as a person who is used to the mass produced store brands. I love how it doesn’t dry your skin out. I’m never going back to the other 'common soaps' again. Been using this for two weeks now and it seems like it will last a while since it dissolves slowly." —Twon

    Price: $8 from Primacandle

    20. A crocheted Jughead hat for the person who hasn't given up on Riverdale.

    Promising review: "This version is far superior to the ones you are seeing that are mass produced and on the market for sale in a rather prominent mall store. If you want a warm, functional and perfectly adorable rendition of Jughead's hat, grab this one. You won't regret your purchase." —Wendy

    Price: $40 from Doridoodle Crochet

    21. A mid-century modern wall sconce so they can finally abandon their harsh overhead lighting.

    22. A bud vase for the person getting into statement ceramics.

    Price: $40.81 (available in five colors) from Kri Kri Studio

    23. A pair of geometric earrings with Amazonite for the maximalist in your life.

    24. A laser-cut wooden planner that'll also be a gift for yourself — maybe they won't keep flaking on your plans now! (You won't tell them this part, though.)

    Promising review: "Three of these beautiful journals are going to California as gifts for my three sisters. I think they are lovely, unique, and a great buy for the price. Now that I have found you, I will be back for more." —Cynthia J

    Price: $26.65 from Cardtorial

    25. A cable-knit beanie for them to make the most of the remaining cold days before summer hits.

    26. And a crocheted sloth mobile that'll make a perfect addition to any new parent's nursery.
