1. An awesome portable mini projector that uses LED lights to deliver 1080p full HD and make their next movie night totally epic.,

Promising review: "This projector can't be beat, especially for the price. The setup was really easy. I have been using it with my Roku and purchased an HDMI/USB adapter so I can use it with my phone. The picture quality is fantastic. I originally planned to use external speakers but there is no need — the sound is great. We have had a lot of fun projecting movies onto the ceiling and outside against our garage. I am really impressed with this product and after seeing it, several of my family members plan to buy it too. It's a great gift — I actually bought it for a gift exchange and ended up choosing it for myself!" —Joanna

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

The light-up chopsticks in red and blue

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 $12.95.

3. A nostalgic Apple Watch stand designed to look just like their favorite handheld video game — plus it has a perfectly fitting spot for the charger so everything looks totally seamless.

Promising review: "Bright and worth more than it costs! Very bright and I like that it has a button to turn it on and off." —V.R.

Get it from Amazon for $21.59+ (available in three colors).

5. A super cool mirror surface, LED display, a digital clock designed with a dimming mode that offers three levels of brightness, and a dual USB port so you can charge your phone right on it.,

Promising review: "I absolutely love this clock, the numbers are big so you can see it across the room yet the clock itself is small enough to fit on the shelf and not look too gaudy. It will also make a great Christmas gift, I definitely recommend this product." —Roxanne C.

Get it from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in eight colors).

7. An awesome handheld Bluetooth speaker designed with a 16-watt sound and a deeper bass for a perfect sound that travels with them to any room in their house. It also has 24 hours of playtime before it needs a charge and is totally waterproof.

A customer review photo of the speaker in some grass

Promising review: "This tiny thing can boom sound like no other speaker of its size. I blasted the speaker full volume in a room downstairs. A few rooms and a flight of stairs away, I could still hear every lyric to the song I was playing. (You can tell I got a bit excited). It instantly connected to my phone via Bluetooth. It also seems sturdy enough that it can be knocked around a bit, which is helpful to me since I’d use it outside a lot. It’s the smallest portable speaker I’ve ever used, yet produces more sound without any distortion at high volumes. The quality of the sound at all levels is phenomenal. I’m excited to see what mileage I get out of it. But as far as I can tell, this speaker is the best one you can get for this amount of money. And I’d argue it’s worth more." —Connor

Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in two colors).

8. An investment-worthy Zadro towel warmer — they just drop in their towel before they go into the shower and in 15 minutes a deliciously cuddly towel will be ready to greet them.

Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in three options).

A mug filled with coffee placed on the pink warmer

Promising review: "One of those items I didn’t know I needed until I had it. As a busy mom of two little ones, I can’t even remember the last time I got to finish a hot cup of coffee. Until now! This truly kept my coffee warm for literal hours. And I love the wood grain look of it. It’s nice and doesn’t look cheap at all. I’m going to keep it on my desk for when I’m working, and I’ll never go without hot coffee again!" —ADR80

The coasters on a table in a dark room all lit up

Promising review: "This is a perfect gift for the nerd in your life! My fiance and I were at a friend's house when he discovered these coasters and declared them the 'coolest thing ever.' I bought them for his birthday and they are a hit for hosting and adding a little color and fun to our evenings in at home. I've had multiple people ask me where to get these. The battery life has been great so far and looks like they'll be easy enough to replace." —Samantha B

Promising review: "I have bought every styling tool out there, some worked really well. Once I bought the Dyson hairdryer and Airwrap I was hooked. So, of course, when the straightener came out, I HAD to have it. Amazing doesn’t give this straightener the credit it deserves. I AM OBSESSED WITH EVERY DYSON HAIR PRODUCT!!!" —Angel1980

14. A totally soothing Wake Up Light Sunrise Alarm Clock that simulates the sunrise, so waking up (at any time) feels totally natural — because let's be real, these days, time is just a concept.

A customer review photo of the alarm clock on their nightstand

Promising review: "OK guys. Here’s the deal. This is gonna be a long review but TLDR; this is an amazing little product and I highly recommend it. I suffer from mild insomnia and generally have to use sleep aids, which is fine but not ideal for every night. I also moved from SoCal to Washington state a year ago and I have NEVER been exposed to so little sunlight in my life! Living in the dark winters here is insanely difficult for me. This👏🏼Little👏🏼Alarm👏🏼Clock👏🏼 Has changed my life and I’ve only had it for like three weeks. The sleepy time setting has the ability to KNOCK me out without the use of sleep aids! What?! My brain totally responds to the way the light functions. The morning alarm is so gentle and peaceful (you can completely control the noise and brightness settings). I wake up much more naturally rather than to the blaring honk or passive-aggressive chiming of a traditional alarm (looking at you Apple). The light settings are so fun as well! I love having it on a low setting in while I’m journaling, reading, watching tv, anything really! I would pay two or three times the price for this thing. It’s 100% worth it." —KatieM

Get it from Amazon for $45.98+ (available in two options).

15. An amazing Oster HeatSoft Hand Mixer that heats up ever so slightly, making it easier for them to break down those harder ingredients.

A person using the Oster HeatSoft Hand Mixer

Promising review: "I was skeptical when I got this mixer. Could it be worth it? Yes, yes it can. Does the butter melt 12 times faster? Not that I could tell but it is noticeably faster. The mixer is easy to hold, had a large variety of mixing tools included. Very strong but not super heavy, feels solid. All the unit's parts, including the mixer itself, fit in an included clear storage container that locks in good. No more hunting in drawers for all the mixing tools anymore!" —pete c

Get it from Amazon for $52.99.

16. A DIY neon-style sign kit with up to 9 feet of bendable light-up wire so they can give their space just enough glow.


Promising review: "This wire worked perfectly. I used it to make a neon sign, and it made an AMAZING Christmas gift!! Then I ordered it in orange, and the color was bright and true to the picture. The wire is thin and flexible and very easy to bend (without breaking), so it can be used for many things. I hot glued it to a wireframe that I formed, and it held perfectly. The battery pack was not too big and easy to use. There were three different modes that you can cycle through (continuous light, slow flash, and fast flash) by pressing the button on the pack. The wire does emit a low buzzing noise when you turn it on. If you ask me, it's no real bother. It isn't very loud and is barely noticeable for my purposes. Overall, this wire is totally cool. There are so many projects you could use it for, and nobody will have any clue how you did it!! lol. I'm very happy with my purchase and may buy more for another project in the future." —Rob

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two sizes and in 10 colors).

17. A Bartesian Premium Cocktail and Margarita Machine to give the gift of a personal, at-home, 24-hour bartender. It creates an endless menu of craft cocktails with no need to measure or pour. Just insert a cocktail capsule, select your preferred strength, and press mix. The system draws the spirit from the appropriate reservoir and mixes your cocktail in seconds.

the cocktail maker

Promising review: "Full disclosure, I own a bar. Keeping all the mixers on hand and fresh to make this variety of drinks is a tall order. We often are out of one mixer ingredient due to the product expiring. The convenience of having this at home with all the flavors premixed is hard to beat. The drinks are surprisingly tasty and well-balanced cocktails. Initially, we were worried that they might be too sweet, an issue that plagues most off-the-shelf pre-mixed ‘cocktail mixes.’ These are not too sweet. The variety is great and they are dead simple to use. Very pleased. This will be a hot-ticket gift item this holiday season." —OkieDoc

Get it from Amazon for $345.29. You can find a pack of six mixer capsules on Amazon for $14.99.

18. A very cool Nixplay Smart Digital Picture Frame that lets them share photos through their app so they can create different albums and get photos from everyone in their household.

Get it from Amazon for $169.99+ (available in four sizes and in three finishes).

19. An indoor wireless Wyze smart camera with HD, real-time live stream capabilities, two-way audio, motion/sound recording (it'll automatically record a 12-second video clip when motion or sound is detected and saves that video to the cloud for 14-days, for free), mobile push notifications to alert them when something is detected, night vision, Alexa and Google Assistant capabilities, and over 20,000 5-star reviews on Amazon. TWENTY. THOUSAND.


Promising review: "My husband and I lost everything we owned in an apartment fire earlier this year. We received our first Wyze cam as a housewarming gift due to its smoke detector alert feature. We loved it so much that we bought another! We took a vacation to Ireland last month and it made it much easier to be away from home because we could check in on our cat any time we wanted. Pros: Night vision, easy setup, adjustable motion detection sensitivity, picture quality. Cons: Sound quality isn’t perfect." —Meaghan

Get it from Amazon for $35.98.

20. A motion-activated toilet light perfect for lighting up their midnight visits to the bathroom.,

They can choose between five brightness settings and 16 colors, or have it cycle through different colors. It automatically turns off when they leave or turn on the bathroom light.

Promising review: "This is the greatest thing for kids or adults alike. I have it set on just the blue light. When I get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, it makes me smile. It lights up enough for you to see, but isn't bright enough to be bothersome or wake you up. It's easy to install and I'd recommend it to anyone. I showed it to a friend at work and they are buying it for their grandparents who complained about getting up in the middle of the night in the dark." —Amazon customer

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

21. A delightful Bitty Boomers Star Wars speaker so they can let the force of their music be heard.

The light on a night table with a charging cellphone plugged in

Promising review: "I feel like I keep saying this but this is one of the best products that I’ve purchased on Amazon. The touch to adjust the light is so simple — three dimming options (starts out at its lowest), at its brightest it puts out a fair amount of light. Perfect for a bedside or end table. Yes, as others have stated it’s pretty small. Check the measurements to avoid size expectations." —carmen wray

Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two options). 

24. A USB-powered LED light strip to bring the perfect amount of ambient lighting to their TV-watching experience.


Promising review: "Easy to install. Lights provide ample lighting; USB allows lights to be a stand-alone fixture without tying up another wall socket. The USB interface also acts to turn the lights on and off with the TV. Backlighting also seems to make the screen seem sharper." —Shaun

Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available for TVs that are up to 80" in size).

25. A multi-talented bedside radio alarm clock designed with a USB charger, Bluetooth speaker, QI wireless charging, and a dual alarm dimmable LED display.


Promising review: "So glad that I bought this clock. Made my life a little easier. It has everything I need and more. The setup was easy, the sound is crystal clear, and I can personalize the brightness. Also, when I’m ready for the Bluetooth connection it’s there and ready to go. I really like it at night when I’m tired, I no longer have to fish around for that cellphone charger cord to plug my cellphone, I simply place my cellphone on top of the clock and the charge begins. I highly recommend." —Leigh Ann Pagano

Get it from Amazon for $36.54 (available in two colors).

26. A Pulse Massage Oil Warming Dispenser that automatically dispenses warm oils without even the touch of a button — making it especially great for anyone with limited mobility.


Nordstrom offers a variety of shipping and pick-up options for on-time holiday delivery. Check them out on their website.

Promising review: "WOW! We've come a long way baby! The warmth is amazing! Couldn't imagine ever going back to a cold, messy, sticky experience. Girls, treat yourself or let your partner know about will change your life." —Stacey12

Get the warmer from Nordstrom for $199 (available in two options).

27. A smart end table designed with a Bluetooth speaker, wireless charging surface, and USB plug — imagine never waking up and realizing they forgot to plug in your phone!


Promising review: "The sound quality is great for the normal consumer. An Audio Engineer may point out some differences. I love the fact that it has Bluetooth capabilities and wireless charging. The wireless charging only charged my phone a little and not 100%. I had to remove it from the charging location then place it back on to continue charging." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in two colors).

There's also this version with a built-in lamp!

28. A splurge-worthy SwitchBot Curtain Smart Electric Motor so you can darken things up with a push of a button. It takes just about 30 seconds to install and doesn't need any screws, nuts, or bolts. It just snaps right on!

It works with their app which is available for iOS and Android. It's designed with a timer that'll close their curtains at night and open them in the morning. It also has a light sensor to automatically know when to open and close them. It can also work with their Alexa devices and they can buy a small solar panel so you never have to worry about power. You can also buy their smart remote.

Promising review: "Perfect wake-up alarm! Sunshine! I love this little device! It was very easy to set up. Just follow the directions, step by step. It took five minutes. I set a schedule in the app so the curtains open at the same time my alarm goes off and they close in the evening. I’ve had it for about three months now. Working great." —Mollie

Get it on Amazon starting at $89+ (available in two colors and for curtain rods and U-rails). There's also a great motor option for anyone with shades

29. A Wi-Fi-enabled light switch they can control from their phone, Alexa, or Google Assistant, totally eliminating the need to get out of bed to turn off the lights when they're already all cozy.


Promising review: "I bought this switch for the bedroom so that my fiancé and I wouldn't have to get out of bed to turn off the overhead lights. Once I figured out that the directions for installation were on the Kasa App I was able to easily wire it into our switch box. Setting it up to work with our Amazon Alexa units was also very easy. I also watched a YouTube video that demonstrated the installation." —Michael P. McDonnell

Get two from Amazon for $19.49.

30. A set of Alexa and Google Home voice-controlled LED Lights that are easily applied under and above their cabinets and that can shine in up to 16 million color options. MILLION.

Promising review: "We love our new strip lights so much that I decided to buy a second set. The first one was installed above the kitchen cabinets where we placed some artwork and vases. The second set was placed under the kitchen island top. Grandkids love speaking to Alexa to change the colors of the lights. Set up was extremely easy and it works with the Alexa app." —junin07

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in two sizing options).

31. An easy-to-install outlet cover plate designed with LED lights so that it can double as a nightlight.


Promising review: "These go on in about 30 seconds. They are awesome. I did not shut off the power to my outlets, but I have experience getting shocked doing residential electrical work, so I've learned my lessons about what not to touch. Even a true beginner would be able to install these without issue. Their tolerance for low light is on the sensitive side, so they end up on more than off but the downward cast light is not bothersome. I was put off by the price at first but bought a two-pack to try out — ended up going back for 10 more." —Oliver North

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $42.48 (also available for light switches).

32. A super fancy and state-of-the-art Samsung 4K Smart TV for a high-def TV that looks like a piece of art — literally! It has a quantum processor and 100% color volume with quantum dots that produce over a billion shades of color so they can display actual artwork, and it has customizable frames that stick on with magnets for a totally sleek look.

The Echo Dot in sandstone

Promising review: "I absolutely love it! Bought to use as a radio/ambient noise device as I fall asleep, but now realize the capabilities FAR exceeded what I initially purchased it for, so I also use it as an alarm clock, Bluetooth speaker for my iPad, personal assistant ('Alexa, add milk to my shopping list'), Amazon Music speaker (which I never used until buying this). The sound quality is really good, especially considering its small size and relatively budget-friendly price. I definitely recommend this to anyone, and if you’re a Prime member... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR! Don’t even 'add to cart,' just click 'buy now' and watch your life get simpler." —Dave S

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two colors).

34. An LED, touch-sensitive, remote-controlled lamp that, as the reviewers note, will bring their room to life!

The light in a corner of the bedroom

Promising review: "This is the most amazing addition to my room. I never turn it off, my room feels alive. You will not regret it. The remote options and all the different light variations, just incredible and blows my mind." —Nora

Get it from Amazon for $78.99+ (available in two options). 

35. A Wi-Fi range extender so they can make the most out of their internet when you're curled up in bed binge-watching The Office for the 80th time.

The TP-Link AC750 Wifi Range Extender

Promising review: "I needed this to get a better signal in the upstairs master bedroom but had no idea what I was doing. Read all the reviews and finally decided to give this a try. Just plugged it in, pressed a button on my router, and presto! It was done! If your router doesn't have that button, there are easy, step-by-step directions. Nothing to it. Moved the repeater upstairs to the hallway, which is quite a distance from my router, and had a full-strength Wi-Fi connection for the bedroom! It was easy and the price was certainly good." —Spyoki

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

36. A self-charging Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac Super-Thin Vacuum Cleaner designed to be super quiet and have an increased suction power, which it turns on when it senses that extra vacuuming strength is needed.

Amazon, @rebekkablue / Via

It also vacuums for up to 100 minutes on hardwood floors with consistent, powerful suction at a volume no louder than an operating microwave. It comes with a remote control (two AAA batteries included), charging base, AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, five cable ties, a welcome guide, and a 12-month warranty.

Promising review: "The Eufy comes in at half the cost of the four-year-old Roomba that we previously used — out of the box, after a full night's charge, it worked flawlessly. The remote is easy to use and after a two-minute look-over of the manual, the thing just WORKS. Roomba would basically never make it back on the charger, it would push it all over our kitchen but never actually park itself correctly. The Eufy did it on the first attempt and has done it daily (unless it gets stuck somewhere) ever since. The Eufy is much slimmer than the Roomba so it is able to navigate some areas that were previously left untouched. The dust bin is always full or near full when we get home and check it, so it definitely is doing its job trying to keep up with our two large dogs and their fur." —Garrett

Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in two colors)

37. A handy iRobot Braava robot mop because robots don't only sweep your floors nowadays, they mop them too!

A photo of the iRobot mop cleaning tile and hardwood floors

It works with Alexa voice control when paired with an Alexa device; cleans finished hard floors like hardwood, tile, and stone; can target specific spills or messes with a request through the app.

Promising review: "We have two German Shedders and I bought the iRobot Roomba 960 vacuum last year, not expecting much...but am completely ecstatic with that purchase. I run her (Rosie) daily and we no longer are slaves to our vacuum. After doing a ton of research and reading reviews and joining FB pages with iRobot groups I decided to give the mop a try. Well, so far I just love her (named her Flash Bazbo). It is so great watching Flash follow Rosie around the house cleaning and getting the job DONE. It is almost like watching when Link rescues Princess Zelda from the Dungeon and she follows him so closely. Fun to watch and my floors look great. Some people have complained about streaks, I see NONE, my house is 100% tile, some wood grain, and some marble pattern. It all looks amazing. I do maintenance and cleaning weekly on both products, and so far my efforts have paid off. There are great sites here on Amazon to order supplies and replacement parts. I figure I am spending almost zero time vacuuming, why not spend about 20 minutes weekly to take care of/upkeep these expensive (yet totally worth it) products." —alsatian5

38. A smartphone-controlled LED bulb they can dim, change colors, and set to a timer so that it wakes them up like the morning sun — even if their wake-up time is before said sun rising.

Promising review: "This light is amazing! As a new mom, the 20% red is perfect for middle-of-the night feeds and diaper changes without fully waking everyone up! I love being able to control the bulb from our Alexa OR the app! I was pleasantly surprised by just how bright it gets! We will be adding these to more rooms in our house!" —Tricia Siclari

Get two from Amazon for $18.99+.

39. A six-outlet USB wall charger and surge protector, which also has a smart night-light that has a dusk-to-dawn sensor to automatically turn on when ambient lighting becomes insufficient. The light also has a touch sensor and three levels of adjustable brightness.

Promising review: "So happy that I bought this beautiful wall charger. It looks much more expensive. The six outlets are nicely positioned that I can use all of them at the same time. Two USB outputs are ideal for charging our phones. Highly recommend!" —Elaine

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

40. A voice- or phone-controlled Nest thermostat that'll learn their preferences based on the time of day and season and make sure their home is always the perfect temperature and that they aren't playing out the Great War of the Thermostat.


Promising review: "I've never had a smart thermostat before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But this Nest device is amazing. Even better, the installation instructions are CLEAR and EASY to understand! There are interactive pictures and a text-based set of instructions online that take you through each step, and troubleshoot along the way. The thermostat works with my Google Mini and of course the Nest app. You can program what times you want the house to be at which temp and it will either start heating/cooling at that time, or you can set it to start before then, so it's nice and comfy when you get home. It has features for dealing with humidity and can even learn your temp preferences and adjust accordingly." —L Williams

Get it from Amazon for $204.99+ (available in seven colors).

41. An LED flame speaker to give them that relaxing I-just-lit-a-candle feeling and soft sound they might need before bedtime but won't light their whole house on fire.

Promising review: "This is an amazing little decor item! The sound from the speaker is loud and clear. The flameless candle is so true to life! It fools everybody who sees it. The best part about this product is the battery life. I use this on my deck every night and it lasts days without needing to be charged. Great product!!!" —Allysen Storch
