4. An oversized muslin blanket that'll keep them warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and delightfully cozy all year round.

6. A waterproof portable speaker so they can take their tunes, podcasts, and audiobooks into the shower with them without worrying about their phone having a water-related accident.

7. An ever-popular Instant Pot Duo Plus for the cooking novice with zero countertop space. This does the work of nine kitchen appliances in one compact cooker they can make *literally* every meal in if they wanted to — it's that versatile.

8. A suction cup holder because what else could make an already great bath better than their favorite brewskie?

9. Or, a bamboo tub caddy to make their first-apartment bathroom feel a little more like a spa with a solid place to rest whatever would make bath time better for them — candles, a glass of wine, a good book, you name it!

10. A luxurious Slip silk pillowcase that'll save them from bedhead, reducing painful morning tangles while giving them a crisp, cool place to rest their head each night.

12. A stainless-steel wine stopper so they can keep that half-full bottle of vino tasting fresh for up to 10 days! This little gadget will save a lot of money (and wine) from being poured down the drain.

15. A waterproof heated razor if they hate shaving *and* like to be on the ~cutting edge~ of tech. This is the world's first-ever heated razor, and will give them the luxe feeling of a hot-towel shave from home.

16. A scalp massager with soft silicone bristles for a stocking stuffer that prevents dry, flaky buildup, stimulates blood flow to the scalp, and just feels real nice.

17. A reusable Magic Key because if they insist on dropping so much money on expensive creams, they might as well make sure they're squeezing out every. last. drop.

18. A multitasking K-Duo coffee maker to give your favorite twentysomething the option to brew a single cup of joe or a full carafe for when guests swing by.

19. A pack of reusable cotton rounds if your eco-conscious friend is tired of removing their makeup with single-use wipes. They'll appreciate that these can just be tossed in the washer and used again and again.

20. Or, a rechargeable facial-cleansing brush that cleanses skin, unclogs pores, and removes makeup in literally one minute. Maybe now they'll finally feel motivated to stop going to bed with makeup on.

22. A stylish beaded lanyard if they're notorious for losing things. These beaded necklaces can hold a pair of sunglasses or a face mask, come in a range of colors, and can be customized with a name or words.

23. A supportive reading pillow for making their favorite place (bed) even better by giving them some additional support to read, do homework, and binge-watch.

24. A luxe set of percale sheets because the set they've been using since college has definitely seen better days.

25. A grooved hair tie bracelet that'll help out your friend who's always asking for a hair tie. This handy cuff ensures they always have two ties at the ready and eliminates too-tight bands from digging into their wrist.

30. A 3-in-1 avocado tool for the avocado toast lover so they can split, pit, and slice avocados with ease. Now the only hard part is eating the avocado in that small window between not ripe and rotten.

31. A Dash rapid egg cooker to make their morning egg prep 1,000x easier. Get boiled, poached, or scrambled eggs in just a couple of minutes. And weighing in at just ONE POUND, it's perfect for small apartment kitchens, dorm rooms, or RV travel!

32. A pair of fleece-lined leggings that they're very likely going to spend all winter long snuggled up in.

33. And lastly, a lace pocket garter with two rows of pockets to safely hold up to three pounds of their stuff. A phone (yes, even big ones), ID, keys, and touch-up makeup will all stay secure while they tear it up on the dance floor in their favorite cocktail dress.

After they open their perfect (and practical) gift:

34. An Our Place gift card that'll give them the funds they need to snag thoughtfully designed cookware and dinnerware, like the mega versatile Always Pan or a set of stylish dinner bowls.
