    1. 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. I owe my sanity to you, screaming goat." —Gab

    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

    4. A set of 50 perfect little vinyl stickers they can use to fully describe their day to life in the office.


    Promising review: "Great silly gift. They are stickers and they stick. You are buying them for an Office fan as a laugh, stocking stuffer, or because you have no idea what to do for that person. So...kind of a no brainer and cheaper than most other branded Office swag." —Scott Cramer

    Get the set from Amazon for $6.88. There is also this great set if you wanna get them an even hundred stickers.

    There is also an awesome set for all those Friends fans out there.

    5. An adjustable back stretcher and lumbar support device capable of providing them with some serious relief from their back pain — yes, they have that now. It works by helping them get a safe and gentle back stretch through one of its four settings.


    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first, but if you have lower back problems this thing really does help. I started at level two but I'm flexible naturally. If you aren't, I'd recommend working your way from one to two. Just use it for five to 15 minutes a day. You'll feel most results the next day or you won't even realize as some pain has resided. If you're debating buying this thing, do it! Best buy if you have back pain." —Jerimiah Wood

    Get it from Amazon for $21.89.

    6. A mini Sega Genesis console complete with 42 games, two wired controllers, and all the cables and adapters you probably need — not to brag but I bought this console for my husband last Christmas and I won Christmas. Like, you probably didn't even know it was a contest, but it was and I won.

    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

    Promising review: "I didn't even know these were a thing! But I love it! I got this for my grandmother who does puzzles constantly. She lays out the mat and is able to switch between different puzzles if one is too hard or she wants to bring it over to one of our houses to work on while she's here. It's easy to use and has really come in handy. Great gift idea for any puzzle lover!" —Thomas D.

    The box of British treats.

    Promising review: "Yooooo these British people know what's up! Dat Double Decker doe 😱😱😱 But seriously, these candy bars are amazing! I had my doubts about the Picnic bar but it's really, really good. Personal favorite so far (still two I haven't eaten yet) was the Starbar. Peanut butter, caramel, rice crispy pieces, chocolate... What's not to love, really? Why the heck don't they sell these in America dammit?! I threw mine in the fridge as soon as I got them. I pull one out about a couple of minutes before I eat it, so it's still cool and doesn't melt all over the place. Works great. This chocolate really does MELT on contact with just about anything that's not refrigerated. Be forewarned, don't eat ANY of these candy bars while wearing white. But also keep it in mind when taking bites. Smaller bites are better. Otherwise, you might find yourself with a huge mouthful of semi-melted chocolate and nougat, trying not to drool. Er, that might potentially happen to someone other than me." —So & So So & So

    Promising review: "Don’t let the title throw you (you can order the same material with a 'softer' title if you want, but why?), this book allows you to enter the information that your loved ones will need when you’re gone...and save them so much trouble at a time when they have enough grief to deal with. As an estate planning attorney, I recommend these books to ALL my clients. And remind them to keep the info up to save the ones you love time, anguish, and money." —PJ

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    The mulberry silk eye mask which reads. "Leave me alone."

    Promising review: "I have puffy eyes, no idea where they came from. Well, maybe from the chemo/radiation, I don't know. I do know I hate wearing my contacts because I feel like I look so old. I am always on a search for something to help my eyes. I found this eye mask that can be used in the freezer. First, I tried putting it on my eyes directly, a big mistake! Ouch. The product comes with a black silky eye cover, so I just put that over my eyes and then put on the cold gel pack. Much better! The black mask helps keep your eyes chilled but not so intensively as without. I actually had been wanting to find a light-out mask because my room can get so bright from the outside light, (darkness doesn't exist in Alaska on a summer night), so the mask has been great for that. I love the relaxing and soothing feeling of the cold on my eyes and cheeks while I sleep. The silk is made of natural protein fibers and it isn't rough on my face at all. It also has amino acid in it that is said to help absorb the water puffiness in the skin." —Jami-1982

    25. A self-cleaning bidet, because I can almost guarantee it'll change their life!

    The self-cleaning bidet.

    Promising review: "I bought one as a gift for my father-in-law — he raves about how amazing his chute feels after a long day of exiting jalapeños. He can’t believe how clean it makes the exit hatch and how awesome it’s made his dumps. In all reality, the entire family's life has changed by this little gizmo. I was skeptical and put off writing a review until tonight when I was able to deliver a truckload of hamburger and hops directly into the toilet to truly test out this beast. Sure you’ve gotta pre-clean a little when it’s a big job, probably not a problem for those of you who don’t look like you’re wearing a bear coat from head to toe, but for us who do it’s a requirement. Once the clingers are all gone I just fired this bad boy up and let her rip. Be warned there is a millisecond of hesitation before its cleaning power displays itself, of which I wasn’t warned and cranked up the juice, unloading a howitzer straight up the driveway. You may be wondering how the end result was — pristine. The precision of its heavenly jets was unmatched. If we’d used these in the Pacific in WWII to aim torpedoes, the war would’ve ended in a single week. Do yourself a favor and buy it, you won’t be disappointed." —DavidkWV

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for the boyfriend Xmas of 2018. It's a good, practical, humorous gift. Plus it's really effective.

    Get it from Ulta for $19.99.

    27. A timeless portrait so you can teach them the intricate art of seduction.

    A portrait of George Costanza in his underwear on a chase sofa.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.43. It doesn't come framed, so I'd suggest checking out some 24x36 frames.

    28. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey you'll quickly wonder how you 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

    Promising review: "I purchased this with the intent to give to my older brother for a birthday gift. It was somewhat a gag gift as he was always accused of cheating at Monopoly growing up, and to this day is still accused of 'cheating' on other things, although he does so playfully. He loved it, could not wait to play with his kids, especially since it was stated that a game would only be an hour or so." —Aaron Nichols

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    31. A super handy cookbook filled with over 150 recipes based on the delicious goodies they always find at Trader Joe's.

    Promising review: "I've worked at Trader Joe's for a long long time. This cool book helps inspire me to cook something different which is hard after cooking dinner almost every night for near 20 years.

    34. A dino-mite coated bronze T-rex necklace with a super-sweet and loving message printed on the packaging making it the perfect gift.


    Promising review: "I purchased this necklace as a gift for a friend who loves dinosaurs. It was super cute and the little saying on the paper is nice too. The T-rex itself is a little small but I liked that about it because it makes it more subtle when it's worn (I tend to like nerdy jewelry that is more subtle until people really see it up close). The recipient loved it and put it on right away too. :)" —melrom

    Get it from Amazon for $10.50+ (available in silver, gold, and rose-gold-plated brass and check out the matching earrings). There are also really cute brontosaurus and triceratops versions.

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

    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 $8.78 (also available in a margarita flavor and moscow mule).

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

    642 Tiny Things To Draw.

    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

    The Sexy Man soy candle.

    Promising review: "I wish they made a cologne out of this scent. It lasted a lot longer than other candles I have purchased on Amazon. I would definitely buy a lot of different ones and find the one that fits your personality. I am not floral and I am not into super-strong scents — I like to be able to breathe and this set a nice tone." —David B

Didn't even know this type thing existed." —mew

    Promising review: "I bought this poster for my friend, who loves all things, Shakespeare. The quality is absolutely breath-taking; it looks even better than advertised online. Words cannot describe the look on my friend's face when she opened this gift. She absolutely loved it and cannot stop talking about it. Excellent purchase!" —Teacher on a Budget

    47. A nonmedical anti-fogging mask designed with a clear window so people can see their lips — I don't think I realized how much I relied on reading people's lips to "hear" what they were saying until we started wearing masks. If we all wore these masks then I'd really be able to "hear" a lot better.

    48. 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 $11.66.

Yes, they never leave the fart phase. ;) But this book is actually filled with very interesting info... lots of science written in an entertaining fashion. And the simple illustrations fit perfectly. I admit that I read it before giving it to my son. He will now be the most popular teacher on his high school campus because... hey, who else knows that sloths don't fart? LOL! If you're looking for something different for a gift, consider this. I think I'm going to order another one!" —Maryann Watkins

    Promising review: "I love this lamp. The look is very unique yet not too 'trendy' which is what I personally prefer. The fact that you can adjust the brightness and the color of the lamp is also a really great feature." —Kindle Customer

    52. A jam-packed cookbook filled with the recipes you've always wanted to try but never wanted to share, because you don't share food.

    The cover of "The One With All The Recipes: An Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Friends."

    Promising review: "I have so many great things to say about this book. First of all, it's FRIENDS-themed! Obviously, for copyright reasons, it doesn't have pictures of the cast or anything. But the color scheme is on point and the text references are plenty for me to feel like I'm having a connection with the show. Second, the recipes themselves have fewer than 10 ingredients each. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to buy a recipe book and then realize that every recipe requires seven things from the store you don't have, two of which you've never heard of. The utility of this book is in the explanations of how to cook simple recipes well. It's mostly American cuisine — comforting food that's still much healthier than you'll find in a restaurant. But they're all fairly foolproof and seem easy to cook and even easier to enjoy." —Xan. Belzley

    The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert

    Promising review: "I received this little wine book as a gift a couple of years ago and really enjoyed how it breaks down the process of 'tasting' wine. It definitely has helped to give me a good guide as to how to consider all the components of wine, it's flavor, and overall experience. Since then, I have gifted it to a few folks. Definitely recommend for anyone interested in wine, even if you already have a good working knowledge of wine, or if you are a beginner (or looking for a gift for these types of people). Highly enjoyable, easy read, quick reference on wine tasting. We keep a copy in our restaurant for our staff to reference as well." —Sarosassah

    Promising review: "My 15 crisp new copies arrived yesterday from Amazon. I will be giving these as Christmas gifts to dog-lover friends and family, to poetry lover friends and family, and to friends who love a chuckle and a guffaw. The authors have written some hilarious verses, and the dogs featured are beyond adorable. The poetry attributed to specific canines fit perfectly — almost as if the authors were taking dictation directly from their doggie-thoughts. Additionally, the book is a beautiful example of graphic design — tastefully elegant, with a clever edge of irony. These dogs have been immortalized in image and poetry." —Fran Bull Fitzgerald

    Promising review: "My kids loved this book! However, when they took it to school for show-and-tell, a few sensitive kids said this book was considered a 'micro-aggression' and said it 'hurt their feelings', then told my kids they couldn't bring it back to school. Wow. Just wow." —@theDavidLeach

    63. A beautifully detailed Fantastic Cities coloring book filled with images of Paris, Istanbul, Tokyo, and Rio — just to name a few — that they can bring to life with color.

    Someone coloring in the Fantastic Cities coloring book.

    Promising review: "Eek! It's like Christmas morning right now. UPS hurled this over my gate this morning at 6 a.m. The illustrations inside are awesome, I CAN'T WAIT to attack this book. BTW, the pages aren't perforated so if you're like me and you want to work on your coloring on a flat surface, get an Exacto knife and slice the pages out from the binding. There are designs on both sides of the page, so I might just buy a second book so I can work on some of them with a pen. I plan to start out with a pencil, but sometimes pen is more vibrant and fun, but can also bleed through on designs you might want to work on in the future. These are designs you need to be patient with. I think they'll take a while to finish so plan to work on them in stages if you can only put in an hour here or there." —LAShopGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $10. And don't forget the color pencils!
