1. An adorable Baby Yoda nightlight that'll guide the way during their middle-of-the-night journeys to the bathroom.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

Promising review: "So cute and I love that it turns on when it senses it is dark. Would also make a cute gift! Could be brighter, but it is perfect for what I was looking for and adds fun to my home." —Julie

Get it from Amazon for $7.48.

2. A copy of Dangerous Games to Play in the Dark, a book filled with goosebump-inducing games based on urban legends from around the world — like Bloody Mary.

The book against a red and shadowy back drop

Promising review: "Magnificent work of supernatural art! Absolutely love this little book! I read a lot of books on supernatural, paranormal, and folklore subjects and this tiny tome is more fun than most of the stuff in my library. It’s got it all! It’s creepy, it’s spooky, it’s historical, it’s urban legend, and magick all rolled into one. This is such a unique book that I recommend anyone and everyone into the occult or supernatural reads this and keep it for reference. The author did her homework and cited her references and the history of each 'game.' The book is well written and edited and so much fun to read. I bought it strictly for chills and thrills, never intending to play the games (but the fun is in MAYBE SOME DARK NIGHT I WILL) so I encourage anyone who wants a tantalizing, wicked nighttime read to get this book. You will be pleasantly creeped out." —SEB333

Get it from Amazon for $11.70.

3. A bag of rare and always delectable Reindeer Farts. The wonders of science have allowed us to capture the magical essence of this elusive animal's flatulence right at the moment that they expel their intestinal gases.

Promising review: "Our kids thought getting a Bag of Reindeer Farts from their Elf on the Shelf was hilarious. They thought it was tasty too. It is a little expensive for what you get but worth it to hear the kids' giggles." —J Alexander

Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

4. A set of really awesome parachute toys they can toss over the edge of any staircase to help get emergency rescue down asap! They also happen to be designed so that they won't tangle., Amazon

Promising review: "Whoever thought of this design is genius. My 5-year-old loves these and it's his favorite gift among all the other (much more expensive) ones we got for him. The no tangle design is genius. I can't count how many of the standard string-type ones we have gotten tangled before finding these." — hiker0811

Get a pack of four from Amazon for $10.50.

5. A cool mist, USB humidifier designed with adjustable mist mode, a 300ml water tank that lasts up to 10 hours, a seven-color LED light, and an auto shut-off that activates when it's out of water.

A model touching the cool mist humidifier in white with their finger

Promising review: "I can honestly say I was shocked to find this little gem, especially for the price. I have used it daily since it arrived at my doorstep. I’ve been taking it back and forth from home to work, but I will instead buy a second one, and most likely a couple more as gifts, as Christmas is around the corner." —Helen Quigley

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in five colors).

Someone pouring wine using the decanter

Promising review: "These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don't always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. These greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can't beat the price!" —Ash Bash

Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.95.

8. A screaming goat, because if there is anything they need this year it's a tiny figurine of a goat screaming out their frustrations.,

Promising review: "I spend about 90% of my day silently screaming at the computer because, well, welcome to customer service. Since this little goat arrived, I no longer look like I am practicing for my appearance on Jerry Springer. I just push the little goat. He screams (but not in a disruptive way). I smile. I am no longer annoyed. I survived peak season because of this goat." —Gab

Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

9. An unofficial Disney Parks cookbook and drink recipe book to help them whip up some magic in the kitchen — and that whip can be of the Dole variety since there's a recipe for that.,

Promising review (for the cookbook): "Bought for someone’s Christmas gift and the cookbook is absolutely adorable and perfect for Disney lovers. The recipes are separated into chapters by park, and it includes a map of where in the park you can go buy the item. There are both sweet and savory recipes and the recipes for the iconic turkey legs are in here! I personally liked that there were recipes for the parks in California since I probably will never go to those parks but can still try the food." —Amanda K

Get the cookbook for $11.99 and the drink recipes for $11.89.

10. A perfect little stainless-steel Rada Cutlery tomato slicing knife designed specifically for cutting those pesky (but so delicious) tomatoes that don't always get along with their other knives.,

Promising review: "I absolutely love this knife! Slicing tomatoes is effortless and I had a ton of tomatoes from my garden that needed to be canned. The knife is very lightweight but very sharp and the textured handle prevents slipping. It is a great knife for the price and I will be buying a few more as gifts for family and friends." —Rochelle

Get it from Amazon for $10.75.

11. A very handy book that could honestly, save their life — or just answer all those questions they're maybe too embarrassed to even google.

A copy of Can Holding In A Fart Kill You?

Promising review: "This book is SO much fun! It provides the answers to so many questions that are fun, interesting, and occasionally historical! The outline of the book is fairly simple. The question (sometimes silly, sometimes intriguing) is posed as a heading, and then there is a quick but detailed answer. These answers are a few paragraphs to a little over a page. The answers are concise but completely filled with great information. The title of the book suggests that all the questions might be crude or overly silly, but that’s not it at all! Although some of the questions are silly (for example besides the title, 'why don’t birds fall off branches when they’re asleep?' or 'why do dogs have wet noses?'), there are so many more kinds of questions in this book! Some of them are vaguely scientific (such as, 'what causes Parkinson’s Disease' or 'how does general anesthesia work'), while others are historical (such as, 'how did Mother’s Day originate?'). Although they are so different, all these questions are really interesting, with compelling answers and well-researched responses. I really enjoy this book. I expect it’s usually used as a 'bathroom reader' but I read it all in one sitting! It’s so much fun, and I learned a lot!" —Elizabeth Elle

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

12. A very handy USB candle lighter perfect for any of your friends and family who are obsessed with candles.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super-minor annoyance. It's a super-intuitive device. Plug the lighter in with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

13. A copy of Wreck This Journal, which can act as a means to help them get their aggression and creativity out.

Promising review: "I’m 17 and I loved this. In the intro it says the page instructions are all up to interpretation, so if it says 'spill your drink' or something you can take that literally or choose to paint on it with something such as tea or coffee that’ll look like brown watercolor. I love that it’s full of bizarre prompts but that you have wiggle room if you don’t want to do anything too crazy. I would recommend this if you’re just looking for something fun or if you’re going through some challenges this is really helpful to distract/express/push yourself!" —Marlee

Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

14. A Lego BrickHeadz Nutcracker Building Kit so they can **literally** build the holiday cheer year after year.

The Lego nutcracker figure next to a christmas tree

Promising review: "Love how easy it was to assemble and so beautiful for a Christmas decoration great for gifts or to assemble with your kids." —Ileana De Jesus

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

15. A double-sided silicone lip brush to get rid of any excess skin and help make their lips totally matte lipstick-ready.

A model holding three scrubber lip brushes

Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical about this product but my desperation to regain my soft lips made me click the BUY button. I just had a baby and between all the milk I was pumping for the baby and caffeine drinking my body was dried out and dehydrated. My lips took a hit and were dried, cracked, and even bleeding — very painful. Even my tried-and-true expensive-as-heck lip moisturizer I use couldn't help. Having this lip brush did the trick and made all the difference. The exfoliation must have allowed my lip moisturizer to get better absorbed. I was able to see results in just a couple of days. Now I have soft and supple lips again. I tried using a toothbrush and I would not recommend it. First, the toothbrush doesn't feel as good and second, it will waste whatever product you are using with it because the product will settle deep in the bristles so you have to use a lot more of it, and third it's also hard to clean. This silicone lip brush feels so good and since the 'bristles' or 'bumps' are shallow, I just needed to use a little bit of my expensive lip moisturizer and it was so easy to clean the brush afterward. Where has this thing been all my life? I don't think I can live without it now." —Double-J

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors). And you might want to consider pairing it with this effective little lip scrub.

16. A handy little in-car dip clip perfect for all the dinner parties they plan on hosting at their new favorite restaurant.,

Promising review: "I love these!!! The part that grips on to your vent, is actually a very tough cushion that keeps the weight of the Saucemoto with ketchup container, from sliding down. I usually now keep one in my Jeep and a second in my purse for use when I’m in someone else’s car!" —Gillian

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

17. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey they'll quickly wonder how they ever lived without! Seriously, it's spicy, sweet, and tastes SO good on pizza.

Someone pouring Mike's Hot Honey on a pizza.

Promising review: "Saw this on a Food Network show and decided to try! LOVE IT! Great honey taste with just a bit of heat at the end. My husband loves 'hot' foods and even grows his own peppers to put on anything. He really likes this on his French toast and I like it with peanut butter. However, I just made baked beans and added a tablespoon of Mike's Hot in addition to the brown sugar (reduced amount) and they were the BEST baked beans ever! I going to tell Mr. Bush and Duke about Mike's Hot Honey!" —Ritakc

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

18. A pack of really yummy ChapStick that'll have them asking for some more.

The ChapStick S'mores Collection

Promising review: "OMG! 😍😍😍 When I opened the package I could smell the sweet scent. Its smell is so delicious! Jesus! 🤤 I can't choose which is my favorite but I guess it’s safe to say all three are my favorite! This is a must-buy! ChapStick never fails me. 😍😍😍" —Shakkura

Get the pack of three from Amazon for $2.96.

19. A stainless-steel rocking garlic press that makes mincing, crushing, and peeling their favorite vampire-fighting vegetable so easy and quick.

Rolling grated rocker crushing garlic

Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

20. A pack of spirited scented pencils to help you bring the holiday cheer (and smells) to their to-do list.

The pencils in Christmas character themes

Promising review: "These are individually packed so you can give them away to friends. Such cute little characters — the gingerbread man is my favorite. The smells are delicious and my daughter doesn’t want to use them for fear of depleting them. Definitely something that contributes to the magic of holidays and a great stocking stuffer." —Rob Lee

Get a pack of five from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four styles).

21. A linen pillow cover to immortalize one of the greatest moments in TV history and that they'll use to rest your head on while you rewatch The Office for the 782nd time this week.

A customer review photo of their dog with the pillow case that says "dwight you ignorant slut"

Promising review: "By far the greatest pillow cover to ever exist. If Jesus needed a pillow cover, it would be this pillow. The Dalai Lama would murder for this pillow cover." —Matt Wood

Get the cover from Amazon for $8.99.

22. A bucket list booklet designed to help them and their partner work out and work toward shared goals.


Promising review: "We are starting our life off and wanted to be able to track our bucket list for life. This book was perfect. Not only does it allow room for us to grow but track our list." —Dr. Angel Maldonado

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

23. A super-genius luggage-mounted cup caddy that slides right onto the handle so you always have a place to put your coffee when you're carrying a million other things.

A photo of the gray cup caddy holding a Starbucks coffee and cellphone attached to a carry-on suitcase handle

Promising review: "This cup holder is perfect! It helps me a lot! Last time I took a plane with a suitcase and a cup of coffee, I dropped and spilled my drink everywhere when it was my turn to check my passport and ticket. It was a nightmare! This time, I bought this cup holder to do me a favor! I don't have to worry about where my cup and phone are! I can free my hands to do other things. I love it so much! Hope you love it too." —Philip

Get it from Amazon for $12.74+ (available in eight colors). 

24. An entertaining The Nightmare Before Christmas Cross-Stitch Kit so they can have something to do while they watch their favorite holiday movies.,

The kit includes a 32-page mini book with simple cross-stitching instructions and four easy patterns (a Jack Skellington, two of Jack and Sally, and one of Zero the dog), three pieces of 4"x4" cotton Aida cloth, a 3" embroidery hoop in which to stitch and display designs, two tapestry needles, and four skeins of embroidery thread.

Promising review: "This was a perfect gift for my daughter who loves the movie. She just started doing cross-stitch so this is a great one to teach her counted cross-stitch. It came with everything she needed." —Monica

Get it from Amazon for $7.07.

25. A wireless charging pad that'll work with their iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS Max, X, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Note 10+, S10+, S9, AirPods Pro, and a variety of other devices — all they have to do is place their device down on it!


Promising review: "This is my favorite phone charger that I have ever used! It is so convenient and easy to use. I love that it has a light on the bottom that comes on to let you know it is charging. This is great at night when you are trying to charge your phone in the dark. No more fumbling around trying to plug it in! The light goes off after a few seconds, so it doesn’t keep you awake. My phone charges just as fast as it does using the charger that came with it. I love this charger so much that I bought three more for the family as Christmas gifts!" —Jessica Feltner

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three colors).

26. An awesome Mystical Fire Flame Colorant that'll turn their fire into a colorful light show. Just drop the pack unopened onto a fire and watch as the vibrant colors come to life.,

Promising review: "Absolutely love these. Whenever we have company over, we throw them in the fire. It doesn't matter if it is in the house or in the fire pit. People are awed by the beautiful colors of the flames. Each pouch typically lasts about 30 minutes. It only burns the color where you place the pouch. So I would recommend putting in two for a more evenly spread out color. Definitely a good buy!!" —Laura A Fama

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.42.

27. A pack of 45 velvet scrunchies — one for every day of this upcoming holiday season.


Promising review: "These scrunchies are awesome! They’re so soft and I was surprised at the good quality of the elastic. I wasn’t expecting much but these are definitely a step-up. I have wavy/curly hair about medium thickness, and two wraparounds was enough for a firm hold. Not too tight but also it doesn’t feel like it’s going to slip off. It also works great as a bracelet — you could literally match them with any outfit because of the variety of colors. A great value buy when stores are selling three scrunchies for the same price!" —X.E.

Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

28. A box of tea filled with delicious flavors and amazing literary quotes — these bags are just asking to be in the opening credits of a rom-com!

A box of Novel Teas

Promising review: "These are really cute and the tea has a great flavor — even tea snobs should be pleased with it :) They come sealed in a plastic bag inside the box. I would buy this again. The outer packaging is quite nice and sturdy, and would make a great gift." —jmp

Get a pack of 25 from Amazon for $12.50.

29. A colorful Little People, BIG DREAMS RuPaul book that's filled with stylish and quirky illustrations and delightful facts of the inspiring performer’s life.

The cover of the book

Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for a friend who loves RuPaul. This book did an amazing job of not only talking about RuPaul growing up and defying gender norms but also explaining it in a way that is easy for younger children to understand. This book did an amazing job of addressing not only setbacks but also their strength to persevere and reach their goals. Great job!" —Charles C.

Get it from Amazon for $13.60.

30. A stainless-steel leaf herb stripper designed with nine holes, each a different size for whatever herbs you're using, It also has a curved edge that can be used as a kitchen knife for chard, collard greens, parsley, basil, rosemary herb, tarragon, and thyme.

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

31. An ultra-pigmented, long-lasting Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint for a weightless color their pout is thirsty for.

A customer review photo of them wearing and holding the bottle for Ink Velvet 05

Promising review: "Pleasantly surprised. I own a lot of lip tints from various brands and price ranges. Including the always popular BeneTints from Benefit. I ordered this and proceeded to apply a nice generous layer. I kept it on for five minutes. I then wiped it off with a paper towel and voilà. This formula is thick enough, which makes it stay in place and it does not bleed, plus the applicator has a nice shape that provides a nice application and outline without the need of a liner. My only complaint, I didn’t get more colors." —Jared

Get it from Amazon for $9.90 (available in 14 shades). Cruelty-free.

32. An awesome beginner's guide to calligraphy that'll help them upgrade their penmanship game by teaching them five different alphabet styles and uppercase and lowercase letters, plus give them some design and composition tips.

Lettering and Modern Calligraphy: A Beginner's Guide

Promising review: “I LOVE this book!! I’ve wanted to improve my penmanship and learn modern calligraphy and lettering for a long time. I thought I’d give this book a try, and I’m so confident in my lettering now. I’m excited to create my own projects and show off my new skills!!” —KHenderson

Get it from Amazon for $6.99. And you might want to bundle it up with a pen set great for beginners.

33. A set of silky-soft satin pillowcases designed to help keep their hair from frizzing, their skin from breaking out, and their dreams sweet.

The Bedsure Silk Satin Pillowcases in silver gray

Promising review: "I love this SOOO MUCH! The hype for silk pillowcases is real! I have a FULL head of hair that is very long, which has also been processed to death. Since my hair is always so dry due to all of the color processes, I like to air-dry it to save it from being damaged further by the heat. Well, my hair would always look like a frizzy mess the morning after, even though I saturated my hair with leave-in treatments and treatment oils. Finally, I decided to try out a silk pillowcase and I'm obsessed! I can now rock my air-dry hair the next morning without looking like I have a rat's nest on my head. The only thing I wish this had is zippers. Since silk is slippery, the cover tends to fall off the pillows often. Other than that, this is perfect. I'm going to bring a pillowcase with me when I travel!" —Rubicant

Get the set of two from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in standard, queen, and king sizes and in 15 colors).

34. A compatible Apple Watch stand designed to look just like their favorite classic comp — just because you can't afford to buy them the watch doesn't mean you can't give them some cool accessories to go with them.

A customer review photo of the watch stand

Promising review: "I bought a bunch of these as gifts for our entire family! They’re so cute and cool! They're well made and don't take up a lot of space — plus, what Apple product lover wouldn’t just adore a tiny replica of the original Mac?! Reminds me of the first computer I used back in '80s middle school!" —Jones Family

Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in two colors). And check out a stand of the newer version of their favorite desktop and an old school iPod version.

35. A 16-sticker Frida Kahlo book so you can give them the gift of her incredible art — for just a few bucks!

Get it from Amazon for $1.99.

36. A pair of light-up chopsticks for when they need the help of The Force to get them through a meal.

Two people battling over rice with the light-up chopsticks

Promising review: "Fantastically fun to use. Even though these are plastic/acrylic they are no more difficult to use than the plastic chopsticks at Chinese restaurants because they are tapered like Japanese chopsticks. They are a little longer than a standard chopstick carrying case, but the fun factor offsets this. I got two pairs, one did not light up correctly. Seller replaced that chopstick within days!!!" —poidog

Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

37. A delightful etched side-view mirror sticker for any Speed Racers you have on your shopping list this year.

A photo of a side view mirror with the sticker that reads, "Objects in mirror are losing"

Promising review: "Oh my gosh, this is so funny! I love this sticker and it gets a lot of attention. I only put it on the driver side of my car, as the passenger side already has the pre-engraved 'Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.' It stays on well after car washes as well. I love this sticker!!" —Mel Point

Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

38. A NOONI Marshmallow Whip Maker that'll quickly and easily turn their face wash into a rich foam making for easier and more gentle application., Amazon

To use this, all you have to do is put a pearl-sized drop of your favorite cleanser at the bottom, fill with water up to the dotted line, and pump it until it creates foam.

Promising review: "I bought this product after doing a bunch of reviews after seeing it all over my TikTok feed. This device takes your cleanser and turns it into a foamy product. Why would you want your cleanser to be foam? First, you will make your cleanser last WAY longer. You add a little bit of cleanser and water then pump it a few times. Instantly it’s foam. You will be using less product, which means you will save money. Another reason is that the product became concentrated and when you put on your face you get the whole product all over your entire face. Foam cleansers are preferred when cleansing because it’s more thorough when washing. It gets the whole surface area. Third, it’s fun! You pump and you instantly have foam. I made a video on TikTok and it went viral! This product is so cute and fun plus it will help stretch your cleanser." —Aimee Rouseau

Get it from Amazon for $7.

39. A set of festive tree-branch hairpins that'll help add a little whimsy to their updo.

The three-piece tree branch hairpins in someone's hair

Promising review: "These are so cute I can’t stand it. The smaller two pins really hold my hair in place, while the larger branch is a gorgeous decoration. For a big day or elaborate updo, it’d probably be a good idea to supplement with regular bobby pins just for peace of mind. I got them in gold, but these barrettes are so fun that I’m considering getting them in every finish available. Very pretty and not at all cheap-looking, considering the very affordable price." —P. S. Crane

Get the set of three from Amazon for $8.09 (available in gold and silver).

40. A super-fun set of conversation starters that'll help them put their phones down and actually talk to everyone IRL.


Promising review: "This was a great gift especially because my husband is limited in his English. It's great! I don't have to translate and he is a 'man of few words' so it gets him talking." —Crystal Rojas

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in a couple and family edition).

41. A pack of very lucky bracelets all wrapped in adorable fortune cookies and ready to be gifted in an even cuter takeout container.


Promising review: "My daughter loves these bracelets so much. I really appreciate the quality of the product as well as the adorable fortune cookie case they come in. Even the fortune teller foldable is cute! I bought these as a Christmas gift, but she’s been wanting more, and when they came today, I couldn’t resist giving them to her. So, I’ll be buying another box 😂. Probably the best 'surprise' product in this price bracket right now, I hope the quality doesn’t change." —Kara

Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.99 (available in a variety of options).

42. A copy of Pixar Uno to have them play their favorite game along with their favorite characters.

The bourbon lip balm
The Little Flower Soap Co. on Amazon Handmade

Usually ships within two to three days.

Promising review: "Because you’re wondering: Yes, a nice, smooth bourbon smell and taste. Not overpowering. This isn’t lip *gloss* for a junior high schooler. It’s lip balm. For grownups. As for the balm part, so far it seems quite moisturizing without being oily. I’m glad I ordered four at once." —C. Romeo

Get it from The Little Flower Soap Co. on Amazon Handmade for $5.50 (also available in a margarita flavor and moscow mule).

Promising review: "These barrettes are the cutest thing! Which one to wear? I've already given a gift of one to friends. So much fun to share. They are even prettier in person! With COVID-19, it's a beautiful way to keep hair out of your eyes and have fun too!" —Barbara T. Polce

Get it from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in two sets).

46. A 100-page blank cookbook with space for all your recipes so you can share all those family staples they love but that only you seem to know how to make.

Promising review: "We searched for three months in bookstores, upscale kitchen stores, Walmart, Amazon, literally everywhere for a big blank cookbook. All of the options were too small, too plain, too get the picture. But one day, this book just graced us in our search, and we couldn't be happier. P.S.: that's a great recipe. ;)" —Andrew Ewing

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

47. A carbonated bubble clay mask designed to get deep down to clean out their pores while it bubbles up to make the perfect Insta pic., Amazon

Promising review: "This mask is so fun and really feels like it deep cleans. It bubbles up a lot and will make you feel like the Michelin Man LOL — but it works great especially with deep cleaning your pores. My 5-year-old loves wearing this mask and watching it bubble — and it doesn't irritate her sensitive skin which is great. I too have sensitive skin and have had no problems at all with this mask. It does get a bit tingly when it's bubbling but in a good way. This mask is great for girls' night as it's hilarious watching it bubble up on everyone. The price is great for the amount of product you get, just be careful and apply very, very lightly on the forehead and around the nose as it does bubble up thick and will go up your nostrils.

48. A genius little Aquapaw slow treat-dispensing mat so you can distract your pup while you clean 'em up — it easily sticks to any smooth service (like your shower tiles) and you just fill it with some PB.


Promising review: "We have a 30-pound lab mix rescue who hates water. Usually, she shakes and tries to escape the bathtub. With this product, she got distracted and stayed in place. We put peanut butter in it and froze it so that it would take longer. Having the nubs helps slow her down too. It stayed in place on our tub with the suctions. Basic product but works great." —book nerd

Get it from Amazon for $10.95. Plus you can throw in some Buddy Budder, specially made peanut butter for your furry friend.

Promising review: "I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the nine-volt battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next!

The New York Times Crosswords book

Promising review: "Best Christmas gift my dad ever received. About five years ago, my dad randomly asked if I could stop by the bookstore and see if there were any 'New York Times crossword books, but only the Mondays (because they're the easiest)!' My bookstore trip was unsuccessful, so imagine my surprise when I saw that this book DID exist! My dad, who is impossible to buy gifts for, is blowing through this book and back on his crossword game! He's already bought the Tuesday book." —Lauren

Get it from Amazon for $11.69 (also available for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday — but they get harder as the week goes on, FYI).

Promising review: "My wonderful wife frequently uses a mandolin in the kitchen. Sometimes, I believe she thinks she's on Top Chef or Chopped. When she gets into julienning, I'm just waiting with car keys in hand to take her to the ER. So, as a proactive measure, I purchased these. They are quite comfortable. They stretch with excellent elasticity. She loves them, and I feel more comfortable that she is wearing something that can protect her. She has used these gloves dozens of times. Not a single issue, and she has washed them with the kitchen towels. No problem." —Jon

Get them from Amazon for $11.49+ (available in sizes S-XL, a touch screen version, and a reinforced version) and check out our in-depth review of these bad boys.

The Blank Comic Book

Promising review: "My 9-year-old son has started writing his own comics — he has loved this book for giving some format to his stories! I love it because it allows me to find his creativity in a book, instead of random pages scattered throughout our house!" —KRR

Get it from Amazon for $5.99 and get some sketching pencils to get them started.

55. A stainless-steel bottle sealer designed with a built-up pressure pump, because buying them the bottle of bubbly isn't exactly in the budget.

The Champagne Stopper

Promising review: "Loved this product. So easy to use. Everything is in one — no plug with pump. It stays on and keeps the bubbles in champagne and all carbonated wines. It does not pop off or leak if you lay the bottle back on its side in the refrigerator. It's metal and very strong. Love that you just need to pump the top to take out the air. Great for picnics and BYOBs. Plus it DOES NOT LEAK!" —C. Glidden

Get the bottle sealer from Amazon for $12.97.

56. A copy of Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza — remember those five words! As soon as there is a match between a card and a spoken word, you race against each other to slap your hand on the central pile of cards. The last one to do so must take them all.

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

57. A helpful copy of How Not to Kill Your Houseplant filled with the survival tips their favorite leafy friend needs to stay alive.


Promising review: "Really great guide to houseplants. I am an experienced outdoor vegetable gardener, who has never had much success with houseplants. The only one I've ever been able to keep alive is George, my un-killable Aspidistra (Iron Plant). Thanks to this book and the more detailed, but less cute, book Practical Houseplants I now have a little forest of air cleaning plants, succulents, retro '70s plants (rubber plant and Swiss cheese plant), and even two indoor banana trees — all healthy and happy. Even George is happier than ever, with new leaves." —Jo

59. An awesome magnetic travel chess set, because it's time to put the Candy Crush down and play a game with an actual IRL human.


Promising review: "This is a nice little travel chess set. While the pieces are plastic, they are not overly cheap quality.

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sets).

60. A pocket-sized drawing journal filled with 642 prompts to help bring out their inner artist.

A customer review photo of the 642 Tiny Things To Draw book

Promising review: "Bought this for my very artistic 13-year-old daughter. She's forever asking, 'What should I draw?' I crossed my fingers when I ordered this, as we've tried many other books to inspire her that didn't. When I gave it to her, I was expecting a lukewarm response. However, as she thumbed through the book, she started giggling and smiling and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I even got a spontaneous hug. She ran to the door when her dad got home to show him the book. And I think that the 642 options may just keep her inspired for a few weeks! ;) Any book that can charm a 13-year-old girl is a keeper in my mind!" —Fascinated viewer

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

Promising review: "Two years ago I bought one for myself — best eye mask I ever had. Love, love the cool feeling and the beads that form to your face, giving you complete darkness. Then I bought some as Christmas gifts. Just recently my sister-in-law asked where I bought it — she needed another one and settling for others she found wasn't cutting it. After two years the elastic band has stretched some but I have my next one bought and waiting. Oh, and I bought my husband one this past Christmas so he would stop stealing mine." —Julie
