28 Gifts Reviewers Said Their Friends And Family Adored

Because nothing is worse than giving a gift that totally flops.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A set of three owl-shaped plant pots that perch upon their very own bamboo stand to offer wisdom and guidance while keeping their succulents looking their best.

2. A chunky-knit cardigan that's best described as, "fuzzy blanket, but make it fashion." Since it has an open-front design, you can't really go wrong with the sizing.

3. A TikTok-famous microwavable popcorn popper that's basically a must-have for anyone who hasn't been getting their movie theater popcorn fix in the last two years.

4. A screaming goat so they can quickly let out all of their mid-workday frustrations in a way that doesn't involve sending a passive-aggressive email. They can just push down the little goat and let it do all the screaming for them.

5. A tote bag that's spacious enough to carry literally everything they could ever need and comes in over 100 colors, so there's bound to be one that fits perfectly in their wardrobe.

6. A pair of slippers with a fuzzy sandal-like design, because they deserve to step around on a layer of cloudlike memory foam, even if they're just walking from the couch to the kitchen.

7. A pair of light-up "chop sabers" so they can bring a touch of the Force to every meal — and have a post-lunch lightsaber battle afterward.

8. A chunky-style cardigan that will get them so many compliments from all of their virtual colleagues. "Wow, you look so cozy!" — Literally all of their coworkers once they enter the chat.

9. A pair of classic hoop earrings made for sensitive ears, so you won't have to worry about accidentally gifting them an allergic reaction.

10. A folding tabletop mirror with some impressively bright lights that will have them saying, "Hey, guys, welcome back to my channel!" like the glamorous beauty influencer they were meant to be.

11. A ridiculously adorable bubble-tea-shaped light for the friend who can't go a day without their boba fix.

14. A deceptively simple and surprisingly mesmerizing fidget cube that can transform into over 70 shapes, so it's perfect for the child on your list who needs a little less screentime and little more creative time.

15. A Hatchimals Crystal Flyer Pixie that actually flies around the room with a few waves of their hand. It's the closest you can get to gifting them magical powers.

16. A highly rated and super-stylish watch so they can finally stop taking out their phone just to see what time it is.

17. A pair of bestselling huggie earrings that people will think you spent five times the price on.

18. A well-loved robotic vacuum over 25,000 Amazon reviewers have raved about. They can schedule cleaning times right from the included remote — and their guests will have no idea their new maid is actually a robot.

19. A sparkling tennis bracelet that will only cost you about $15, but will make them feel like a million bucks.

20. These highly rated pajama bottoms, because they should really be taking advantage of the fact that none of their coworkers can see what kind of pants they're wearing. They'll practically live in these and beg you for the link so they can buy more.

21. A casual quarter-zip pullover that's fitted at the top but loose and flowy at the bottom. They'll look put together enough for any unplanned Zoom calls yet relaxed enough for any unplanned naps.

22. A heat-resistant mug with an adorable little bear on the inside that is so stinkin' adorable it might just convince them to close the Starbucks app and make coffee at home for once.

23. A waterproof speaker so they can take their shower concerts to the next level. It has an impressive 12-hour battery life on a single charge, meaning they can shout and cry their way through Adele's 30 approximately 12 times before needing to recharge.

24. A nifty device that can turn hot coffee into iced coffee in 60 seconds, which is perfect for the coffee connoisseur on your list who drinks iced beverages year-round. It can also be used to quickly chill wine, which may be even more useful.

25. Or a cold brew pitcher that's so easy to use and will have them wondering why they didn't switch to homemade iced coffee a long time ago. Their wallet will thank you.

26. A 7-in-1 Instant Pot because, yes, it actually lives up to the hype. Whether they're slow cooking their favorite soup or looking to whip up some homemade yogurt, this magical pot does it all.

27. A sleek desk lamp with two USB ports and one outlet so they can stop complaining that there just aren't enough outlets in their room.
