Promising Review: "I love these shot glasses — always a huge hit at parties. They’re durable, easy to clean, and a great conversation piece. They’re also good for portioning out cocktails.

8. A 23andMe DNA test so you can get a detailed breakdown of your ancestry and see exactly where you come from — you can even use the results to connect with new relatives from around the world.

instagram.com

Promising Review: "Just six months into researching my father's DNA, I found my grandfather's family and figured out who he really was. I wanted to ensure that my information was correct and so I contacted the daughters to the man I believed to be my grandfather's brother and offered to test them both. Their test results confirmed they were indeed our first cousins. I have since been in contact with close and distant family via this newly discovered paternal side and even obtained a copy of my grandfather's family surname book. His absence was even recorded in the book! I solved an 83+ year mystery and gained a family I longed my entire life to know about. I cannot be more thankful that these tests are available and that it gives us such ability to solve things that seem impossible." —Coastal Girl

Get it from Amazon for $79.

9. A Bob's Burgers Monopoly game, because let's be serious here, we'd all like to own Wonder Wharf way more than we'd want Boardwalk or Park Place.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "My husband and I are HUGE Bob's Burgers fans, and we have most of the BB merch but this version of Monopoly is my FAVORITE. I think any fan will appreciate this game. The spaces and cards are hilariously themed, and the game pieces are adorable character pieces. Overall this is a quality game and I highly recommend it." —Merryl

Get it from Amazon for $30.99 or from Jet for $30.99.

10. A stainless steel bracelet designed to let you turn your hairband into a cute piece of jewelry that doesn't squeeze your wrist.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "THIS IS THE BEST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER BOUGHT AND I AM MAD I DIDN'T COME UP WITH THIS CONCEPT MYSELF! I wear a hair tie around my wrist every day. And this makes it actually look like a cute fashion accessory and keeps me from losing circulation in my hand so I don't end up with a hair tie indention on my wrist anymore." —Casey

Get it from Amazon for $15.89+. Available in three colors.

11. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey you'll quickly wonder how you ever lived without! Seriously, it's spicy, sweet, and tastes SO f#@%ing good on pizza.

mikeshothoney.com

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 Mike's Hot Honey for $10 or from Amazon for $12.95.

13. A delightful book of all the wonderful tidbits of wisdom bestowed upon us by everyone's favorite TV artist, Bob Ross.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "As a kid I grew up in a household that didn't have cable/satellite TV. Often I'd be stuck watching Bob Ross on rainy or lazy days. I say 'stuck' as if it's a negative thing but it really isn't because I grew up watching his stuff and was always impressed with how easily his brush strokes could create whole environments from splotches of paint. This book is a small collection of his works and his words side by side from page to page and it's really well put together. The passages of his comments chosen are very heartfelt and inspiring even if you aren't a fan." —Marcus

Get it from Amazon for $11.01, from Barnes & Noble for $11.53, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

17. A gorgeous book filled with portraits and facts about some pretty amazing scientists.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I bought this for my second-grade daughter who loves science. At first glance, she was turned off by the small type but a few minutes later she came back and wanted me to read with her. For an elementary schooler it will likely be a read together book for a while. Which is fine since we've just read a few pages and it opened up opportunities to discuss all sorts of things, about science and society and piqued our interest to look up additional pictures and facts on the Internet. I am learning too! And it is a beautiful book to hold and look at." —Sam Azon

Get it from Amazon for $11.55, from Barnes & Noble for $12.01, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

19. A heat-proof glass cold brew maker that'll help you get your morning pick-me-up right out of your fridge.

amazon.com

Just fill the center filter with your favorite coffee, let it steep overnight, and the next morning you'll wake up to deliciously cold brew to serve however you like it!

Promising Review: "This is the best investment I made this year! It makes the best cold brewed coffee and doesn't get grounds in the coffee. Has an all-glass construction with quality lid and filter." —Melissa

Get it from Amazon for $13.99 or a similar one from Jet for $24.69.

21. A pair of sweatproof wireless earphones designed with Bluetooth capabilities, secure ear hooks, built-in microphone, and a lightweight feel.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I have tried many earbuds in my time, and I have to say that these are by far the best! These stay in my ear perfectly and they do not come out unless I want them to which is extremely important. They come with enough customized ear tips/wings to fit any ear type I'd say, so I doubt anyone would have an issue with them coming out of their ears. The sound is surprisingly good. I mean, I'm no audiophile but they sound very, very good. Along with the great sound, the noise cancellation works so well, it is like having earplugs in. I recommend these to anyone, budget or not!" —Brad B.

Get it from Amazon for $18.99+. Available in six colors.

22. A stainless steel, vacuum-insulated Yeti rambler for anyone who likes their coffee hot and their commute long.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is an exceptional travel mug. All the hype is accurate. This cup never sweats and drinks stay warm or cold for extended hours. Absolutely a great purchase and well worth the cost." —SEG

Get it from Amazon for $34.99 or from Jet for $21.88. Available in five colors.

23. A comfy crew-neck T-shirt, because in the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders. This is their T-shirt.

24. A magnetic levitation platform to make nearly anything you own look like it's floating.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This rocks! I've shown it to 10+ people, and they are all amazed!! It is easy to setup and shows off great. Strongly recommend this for light objects, for something light, it is great." —Rick Mosteller

Get it from Amazon for $69.96.

27. A T-shirt that is straight up stain resistant! Can you imagine being able to wear a T-shirt and not end the day covered in everything you ate?!

amazon.com

Promising Review: "It's a truly an amazing product. The hydrophobic material works exactly as promised. The shirt does tend to run a tad small and as a result is pretty tight. But still makes for a great undershirt or work out shirt, also it arrived very promptly and in great condition!" —sterling morris

Get it from Amazon for $29.99. Available in sizes L-XXXL.

30. An LED vanity light kit so you can turn any mirror in your house into a well-lit masterpiece.

amazon.com / Via "

Promising Review: "This mirror light kit looks great and brightens the room. Installation took less than 10 minutes. The tape sticks like super glue. It is extremely hard to remove and adjust. So make sure to measure and place carefully before installing. Overall, every aspect of the kit works great and putting on makeup is so much easier with it." —Moss Family

Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

32. A pair of delicate silver elephant earrings you'll never forget to put on.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Loved them so much that I ordered three more as gifts! They're perfect as everyday earrings. The design is beautifully simple with no tiny grooves for collecting dirt — making them extremely easy to keep clean and shiny. I have very sensitive ears that get infected easily, even with expensive and nickel-free jewelry, and I have had no problems at all. I wear them to bed and they still remain comfortable. The backs are also very secure, which it rare without safety backs. I totally recommend these earrings for any age group." —DIANNA KULB

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

34. A leather iPhone 7 or 8 case that'll double as your wallet, because carrying so much stuff is really getting old.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is the best phone cover that I have ever had! It’s not bulky like other cases with credit card enclosures and the cards are kept safe from falling out with a magnetic closure. I am really pleased." —J. Church

Get it from Amazon for $14.99. Available in two for iPhone 7/8 and 7/8 Plus and in five colors.

36. A motherf#@%ing TubShroom, because if you don't already have this magical little drain protector/catcher/strainer/life saver than you don't even know how good you could have it.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "It does the job of keeping hair from going down the drain very well. Three people in our house have long hair. We had our tub unclogged last week and it was due to hair. A few days later, the TubShroom arrived and it's already catching all the hair that would otherwise go down the drain. You'll be surprised how much it catches in just a week. If it's not catching it all, then it's catching 99% of it. I don't see any hair in the drain hole at all. This product is far superior to any other drain catcher we've had." —Polymath

Get it from Amazon for $12.95 or from Jet for $12.99. Available in five colors.

39. A portable Bluetooth speaker designed to be waterproof, sand-proof, wireless, and have amazing sound.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Best speaker I've ever purchased. Great sound, loud, battery lasts longer than any other speaker I've had. Four months later, we ran it over — twice — with a Chevy 2500 and then the trailer. :( GUESS WHAT! It still works! INCREDIBLE! Just bought two more!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

40. A five-setting non-stick waffle maker, because who hasn't been binge watching Parks and Rec for the 80th time and thought, "I really want a waffle now!"

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I've been using this exact product for 15 years almost weekly. Dropped it and broke the plastic base (it is very sturdily built, just a bad drop) and ordered a new one. Makes perfect waffles every time. Excellent product." —JWB

Get it from Amazon for $26.95.

41. A super cute set of dangle earrings to help upgrade any look.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Super cute. I got compliments on them all night. They were a great price, totally unique, and they didn't look cheaply made." —Chrystani C Heinrich

Get it from Amazon for $14.99. Available in 30 colors.

42. A Funko figurine of Kevin from Home Alone getting ready for battle, because what better way to celebrate the holidays than reminiscing about that time when you were a kid and your parents made you watch a Christmas movie about a child who was forgotten and had to fight off burglars in his giant house?

44. An easy to understand guide to all the important things we're never taught in school — like saving so we can buy people awesome gifts!

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is really an excellent book for a young adult — or an older adult who hasn't quite learned it from life experience yet. I bought this book almost a year ago for my daughter who was turning 18. I was so impressed with the book when it arrived, and I perused it myself. Wishing I had been taught this myself, I just bought another for my son, who is also about to turn 18. I think this book is a perfect choice as a gift! It offers good and sound advice in regards to financial decisions and who doesn't need that?" —snugglebunnies

Get it from Amazon for $11.88, from Barnes & Noble for $12.17, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

46. An adorable Dobby ornament, because all you've ever really wanted for Christmas is a house elf as devoted as he was.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I love this ornament! I originally bought it as a gift for an ornament exchange, but I may have ended up keeping it and buying a second for the exchange. It is well made and really goes with any Christmas decor (I have a rustic tree and the colors blend in well). Can't beat Amazon's price either." —Rachel

Get it from Amazon for $31.98.

47. A collection of beautiful books including Anne of Green Gables, Heidi, Little Women, and A Little Princess.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I purchased these books for my daughter's book collection, and it is by far one of the most beautiful box sets I've ever received. Definitely a long-lasting item to keep around for many years to come. Very, very pleased." —Jordan G.

48. And an iFly experience so they can feel what it's like to skydive without ever having to get on an airplane.

iflyworld.giftcards.com
