1. 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.

2. An entertaining The Nightmare Before Christmas cross-stitch kit so they can have something to do while they watch their favorite holiday movies.,

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). And if you want, give the gift of scented pencils — unless they're bold enough to do the puzzle in pen.

I wanted her to have something to rejuvenate her in a long shower after a long day with a newborn. First-time moms need a little pampering too. My goddaughter smelled the scent from the unopened box and LOVED them." —Gidget007

Get the pack of six from Amazon for $29.69.

12. A classic PlayStation console complete with 20 games, two wired controllers, a virtual memory card, and the HDMI cable you probably need — not to brag but I bought this console for my husband last Christmas and I won Christmas.

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


Promising review (for The Office stickers): "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 Office set for $7.99 and the Schitt's Creek set for $8.99 from Amazon. There is also an awesome set for all those Hamilton and Parks and Rec fans out there.

18. A full-body vibrating mat with 10 motor-vibration mattress pads and soothing warmth to help alleviate any back and muscle pains.

Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in two colors).

19. A 2022 Jeopardy Calendar that'll give you a new trivia answer every day and a Jeopardy puzzle and games book so you can get even more trivia into your day.


Promising review (for the calendar): "I get this for my wife every year for Christmas. We have a daily Jeopardy competition, and we keep score during the week. It's been our tradition for years." —John

Get the calendar for $14.39 and the book for $7.99 from Amazon.

20. An ion-generating Revlon one-step airbrush capable of drying, straightening, and giving your hair the volume you dream of with just one tool., Amazon

Promising review: "I have 3a/3b curls (I included a pic). I watched A LOT of reviews on YouTube for this product before I committed to buying it because that's always smart to do when you don't want to waste money. But OMG my results came out better than all the reviews I saw with the girls that had similar hair to mine! The trick is to keep rolling it a few times before you let the strand go. Just like the stylists do when they blow-dry your hair at salons with the large rolling brush. I was able to straighten my hair in 45 minutes on my first time and I could probably do it in less time next time because now I know how to use it. I was worried about my roots not getting straightened like in some of the reviews I saw but nope my roots came out perfect! The trick to that is to hold it at the roots for a few seconds. After a strand is straight and completely dry I'll switch it to cool and pass it through another time. If you want your ends straight and not flipped you'll need a flat iron but I prefer them flipped anyways. Be careful not to burn your hands by accidentally touching the blower. Also, your wrist/hands will get tired but it's still worth it! LOL! Oh, I've also somehow managed to turn the switch accidentally a few times while using it. My hair is amazingly soft and super shiny. The biggest pro for me is that it'll only take me 10 minutes to freshen my hair every day after that first day! Best styling product ever!" —BIANCA

Get it from Amazon for $34.88+ (available in seven styles).

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

Someone pouring Mike's Hot Honey onto a pizza

Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-Fil-A delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in original and extra hot and in three sizes).

23. A desktop Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy. Hi. I'm Elena, president and CEO of Elena's Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy Emporium and Warehouse. Thanks to a shipping error, I am now currently overstocked on Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guys and I'm passing the savings on to yoooou!

Promising review: "I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the 9-volt battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next!

He brought me such joy I started to cry with laughter and happiness." —Robert Wurstner

Get it from Amazon for $6.79. You might also want to throw in this very helpful book filled with life lessons.

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in six characters).

26. A really freakin' cool National Geographic Geodes Kit that lets them open up and examine crystals insides. It includes a detailed learning guide, the goggles, and two display stands., Amazon

It comes with 10 geodes of varying sizes as well as goggles and a display stand.

Promising review: "What a terrific gift for a great price! I bought two of these kits for two separate families with small children, one a 3-year-old and the other a 4-year-old. Both the kids and the parents really enjoyed cracking open the geodes to see what was inside. Many of the geodes were smaller but these are supposedly all-natural and that's just the way it goes. Also, for the price, they were terrific! Most of them had similar colors inside but we did get one that had a beautiful little amethyst-colored gem growing. Either way, there was lots of excitement while we all sat together to break them open." —beftgoesleft

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in three options).

27. A delicious box of Maldon sea Salt Flakes and Smoked Sea Salt is the perfect gift to the hostess with the mostest or your favorite chef.


Promising review (for the sea salt flakes): "I saw a video of Cameron Diaz cooking and she was raving about this salt. I read other rave reviews and purchased a small box. This salt is different from any other I've used, it's super thin, flat, and tasty. It has a slight crunchiness when you're eating, which is surprising and delicious! Makes everything you use it on a gourmet surprise. I will definitely buy more and a larger size. It makes a great gift, too." —RiverLady

Get the sea salt flakes for $5.79 and the smoked salt for $5.99 from Amazon and Amazon Fresh.

28. A compact, waterproof coffee mug warmer with three heat settings and an auto-shutoff feature — so they never have to worry about that forgotten cup of coffee on their desk that gets ice cold before they finally have a chance to drink it.

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

Get it from Amazon for $24.29+ (available in seven colors).

29. A pair of Apple AirPod Pros designed with active noise cancellation, transparency mode for hearing the world around you, and three sizes of soft, tapered silicone tips for a perfect fit — they're also sweat- and water-resistant and have a wireless charging case that has more than 24 hours of battery life. Basically they're really cool and if you like anyone enough to throw down this kind of cash...well, lucky them.


Promising review: "Apple hit a home run with these, I wanted the original AirPods but couldn't get them to fit in my ear. I have tried other true wireless earbuds and never liked the look or fit of them. With the AirPods Pro, Apple has answered my prayers, and they're even better than I could have imagined. The sound cancellation is LEGIT. The sound quality is very good for me. I'm by no means an audiophile but I'm a little picky as far as this goes and I'm more than pleased. The ability to switch from noise-cancelling to transparency mode is awesome as well." —TCC

Get them from Amazon for $179. You can also check out the classic Airpods and while you're at it take a look at this silicone case for both the classic and pro cases.

30. A delicious box of British treats filled with 10 of the top-selling Cadbury British chocolate bars that they may or may not eat in one sitting.

A box of British treats

Takes two weeks for delivery.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in a bag or box).

31. 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.

32. A super cozy hand-woven blanket that'll look super elegant even when it's just thrown about.

A customer review photo of the woven blanket in grey and white with mustard yellow accents

Promising review: "I absolutely adore this throw. I read through the comments about it being rough; it's not meant to be cashmere and I don't find it rough in the least. It's soft as it should be based on the thread used. The tassels are not loose threads. I like the look and the unfinished metallic mustard thread adds character. It's a beautiful pattern and the throw works perfectly with my sofa. I can't wait to read my book and cuddle with it." —K. Gabriel

Get it from Amazon for $43.07+ (available in three styles).

33. A seven-color silicone night-light so adorable, so precious, so cute...not even the monsters under their bed will be able to stay scary.

Three silicone night lights stacked on top of each other.

Light is touch-controlled and comes with a 15-hour battery.

Promising review: "Love love love this! You can turn the light on and off by smacking it, clapping at it, smacking the table, squeezing the lamp, so many options! I bought it as a last-minute birthday gift for a friend, figuring she'd open it, like it, and put it in her bag to take home. But it was such a hit! Five grown adults sat around the living room fighting over a night-light, haha." —MeowAllieCat

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in two adorable faces).

34. A Baker's Edge brownie pan, because everyone deserves to enjoy the magic of a corner piece.

A customer review photo of their Baker's Edge brownie pan

Promising review: "Because this pan is intended for the 'brownie edge lover,' if you aren't one, this is not the pan for you. Now if you're still reading then you must have heard the rumors about this pan. Not being one that makes brownies more than once a month I just couldn't convince myself to spend over $30 on a pan. Now that I have it I will never go back to a standard pan for brownies. It gives every brownie at least two chewy edges, it's totally nonstick, and there is no oiling or flouring necessary. Cleanup is easy. A little hot water, soap, rinse, dry, and voilà!" —Cricket

Get it from Amazon for $37.95.

35. A copy of Werewolf: A Party Game for Devious People — you know exactly who to give this to.

The game laid out on a table

Werewolf is a party game of lies, deceit, and accusations. There are 20 Villager Cards, 10 Werewolf Cards, eight Wild Cards, two Seer Cards, two Doctor Cards, two Moderator Cards, two Village Drunk Cards, two Witch Cards, and two Alpha Werewolf Cards. They can play with up to 35 people (or two 20 person games).

Promising review: "Loads of fun! This was a Christmas gift and we opened it right away and started playing. It was fun getting to learn how to play as we played the first time; we stumbled through it due to our own misunderstanding of the instructions and I (as a villager) convinced our group to kill the last villager before the game was over haha. Start out with one werewolf if playing as a smaller group to get the hang of how it works then add werewolves for a more advanced and difficult gameplay." —Kyle Johnson

Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

36. A copy of Subpar Parks: America's Most Extraordinary National Parks and Their Least Impressed Visitors — so they can visit the very parks people love to complain about.

A customer review photo of them holding the book

Promising review: "I give 1 star… hardcover is too hard. Just kidding! I give it five stars. Without a doubt, this is my favorite coffee table book and surprisingly also super educational. The perfect combination of sassy and informative while poking fun at one-star reviews of some amazing national parks. I love, love all the added educational snippets along with the review illustrations. And Amber’s writing style is so personal and relatable I feel like we could be friends. Such a fun book, so worth the buy!" —Anna

Get the book from Amazon for $19.49.

37. A lightweight, programmable egg cooker, because believe it or not, the hardest thing to learn to cook is freakin' eggs — this little gadget can boil up to six eggs at a time, poach two eggs with its separate poaching tray, or even make an omelet!

Promising review: "I adore this little gadget. I'm usually not one to buy a lot of gadgets for my kitchen, I hate cluttering my counter space. But this is worth it. It isn't very big. I love poached eggs but hate watching them trying to guess if I've cooked them the way I want. This does it all by itself. If you like them harder, you can leave them in after the buzzer for an extra minute. If you like them softer, you can take them out right away or even reduce the water a touch. Or if you like them softer, use bigger eggs. It works in less than 10 minutes and cleans up wonderfully." —Teelo

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in eight colors).

38. A gorgeous 20-piece set of hair barrettes perfect for giving to your most stylish friend or breaking up and giving to a bunch of stylish friends.


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 $12.99+ (available in two sets).

39. A wireless sleep headphone headband designed with Bluetooth, ultra-thin HD stereo speakers that make it perfect for sleeping, workouts, air travel, and meditation.,

Promising review: "I bought these as a gift for my daughter, who needed something to listen to podcasts at night while she was recovering from leg surgery. She claims they are very comfortable, have long battery life, and the sound quality is excellent. They don't slip off her head while she is laying down, and even stay on if she falls asleep wearing them. They are a good value, and the headband is washable, too!" —zoe1157

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in nine colors).

40. A copy of Drinking Animals Coloring Book, a fun coloring book filled with adorable and hilarious animals to bring to life and quick and easy cocktail recipes.

The cover of the coloring book

Promising review: "Purchased as a gift, the recipient was absolutely thrilled. The cocktail recipes really sold me on this item. It doesn't feel like a cheap coloring book either." —aliensca13

Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

41. A 52-week gratitude journal filled with prompts and space to write out everything they're thankful for — because sometimes we're so focused on what we don't have that we forget about everything we do have.

The gratitude journal on a desk

Promising reviews: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched so many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, was straightforward, and was exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept and I've only been doing it for a week but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for, find myself adding lines below the three provided and writing in the margins...all because I want to!" —silkeymilkey

Get it from Amazon for $6.99. If you want to get really fancy include a beautiful set of pens.

42. A set of shredder claws, because who actually has time to wait for meat to cool before they handle or start shredding it? Not me, and I have the burned fingertips to prove it.

The claws being used to shred meat

Promising review: "Works well for shredding larger portions of meat, like pork. Plastic appears to be of higher quality. Sufficient room in the opening for most finger and hand sizes. The pointed tips shouldn't cause injury unless you're careless. I'd highly recommend the use of quality protective gloves; you're not only dealing with the mess of shredding itself but also, most likely, some elevated-temperature food." —Legardi11

Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in four colors).

43. A pair of Dearfoams shearling slippers that are not only super comfy but water-resistant — so in the event they decide to just say "screw it!" and wear them on their Target run, they'll survive the journey.


FYI, these are included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

Promising review: "I wanted to replace old slippers since I'm wearing them much more while working from home, and I'm so glad I settled on these! I've hardly taken them off in the several days since they arrived. They're perfectly cozy and keep my feet warm without being too hot on more mild-temperature days. They look great, too; I love the tan suede look. The soles are solid enough there's some support, and I can run outside to the mailbox or trash can in them. But they're not super bulky, so they're still comfy to wear around inside all day." —Tigs1781

Get them from Amazon for $41.49+ (available in women's sizes 6–11, in regular and wide widths, and nine colors).

44. A super-comfortable memory foam seat cushion to give them a little relief while they work away.

Promising review: "I bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife. She has an hour+ drive each way to work. She has told me that this pillow has made a huge difference in her comfort level on that drive. Her back is a lot better after using this pillow on the long drives. I would recommend this for people who sit a lot." —KMButler

Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in five colors). There is also a great footrest version.

45. 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

46. A gorgeous rose-quartz roller and scraper massager — have them put these in the fridge to help with puffiness and to distribute any serums. They're so incredibly relaxing.

Promising review: "What a gorgeous-looking box. I already knew about these rollers and their natural cooling/healing properties. It was so relaxing and amazing using this roller and gua sha. It felt like a mini spa facial, but at home! The instruction card was super easy to read and follow. Overall great product. I would definitely buy as a gift for friends. It's the cutest thing and so useful too. Everyone should have one of these in their beauty arsenal." —AmazonCustomer

Promising review: "My absolute favorite is Kreacher's French Onion soup. I love having that on a cold day, or need to use up onions and beef broth. Absolutely delicious! Their roasted chicken recipe is the best one I've found (even better than Betty Crocker and The Joy of Cooking). The instructions are simple, and the flavor for the chicken comes out perfect every time. No trussing the bird or using a lid. I tweak the recipe a little by adding potatoes, and half a cup more water because I use slightly bigger birds and a bigger roasting pan. I really enjoy the history included about the cuisine, along with where in the book the food item was mentioned. If you are a Harry Potter head, then this is a great addition to the collection of paraphernalia related to the world of Harry Potter. Excellent cookbook to own, and excellent as a gift if you have a friend." —MB48

48. 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

49. 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.

Promising review: "Bought this by accident because I thought these were baby flash cards. Saw these were actually a card game and tried it with my husband and fell in love with this game. It's fun and competitive. :D" —Synthian

50. A set of light-up coasters, because darkness is no excuse for messing up their table.

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

51. 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.

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

52. A very handy craft storage cart for your favorite DIYer. It's designed with three built-in storage drawers, two dowels for hanging ribbon, two built-in shelves, slots for storing gift wrapping paper or other hanging crafts, and wheels so they can roll it anywhere they want.

The storage cart filled with craft supplies

Promising review: "Suits my needs perfectly. Took a little over an hour to assemble. Holds all my wrapping paper (about 12 rolls) and supplies. The drawers slide nicely. I need to get some baskets for the two lower compartments. Fits great behind my door. I'm going to add a Command hook or two on the side opposite the ribbons to store gift bags on. I love it!" —Bart W. Bentley
