Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are tricky and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

1. A copy of Burn After Writing, a guided journal they've probably eyed on TikTok. It urges journal owners to express and explore their feelings away from screen. And then, WELL, they can burn it after writing. Which is just fun. 

Promising review: "I first saw this book on TikTok and decided to look more into it. I purchased four total because I know some people holding onto things that are difficult to let go of. It’s a great way to look at things from a different perspective and truly hold yourself accountable to different things in your life. I love what it stands for and I look forward to when I burn mine after I’m done. Self love, self care, and meditation for a better state of mind tomorrow is always the goal. I definitely recommend it to those susceptible to change and the willingness to try things different. You’re so much more than what’s been done to you and someone’s inability to see your worth does not decrease your value. Choose you for a change." —Brent Helm

2. A marble AirPods case in a range of gorgeous colors that'll also dispel the mystery of whose is whose in your household. It's really pretty. Do you agree?

3. Or if they've been holding out on splurge-y AirPods (same, tbh), a set of affordable, highly popular wireless Bluetooth earbuds that are pretty, just so happen to be fully waterproof, come with several sizes of earbuds so they'll get a comfy fit. AND I just so happened to buy some of these for myself. 

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge). 

Promising review: "Best decision! These are the greatest headphones ever! I saw them on TikTok months ago and added them to my wishlist. I got a new phone that doesn't have the headphone port so I decided it was time to finally buy them. They are amazing and I probably won't ever take them out of my ears! 😂" —Katlyn D Arnold

5. A geometric tray they can use to elegantly park the day's jewelry so it doesn't get lost in between walking in the door and putting away everything from the day.

9. A plug-in color-shifting mushroom light whose IG aesthetic is extremely cottagecore...and they're also extremely clumsy. Could def come in use en route to the bathroom in the middle of the night!

Promising review: "I LOVE this night-light. It's in my bathroom and is a lovely addition. It turns off the second the lights go on, which is nice because I don't have to worry about accidentally leaving it on. Super cute and the little itty-bitty lighting element does a good job lighting, just enough so I don't have to turn the main lights on in the middle of the night." —1Thand

11. A picturesque Bundt cake pan to produce the most ~magical~ powdered sugar-dusted forest.

12. An Always Pan that comes with a nonstick surface, vented top, mesh basket for steaming, and high-quality spoon that hooks onto the handle — they'll wanna leave it out on their stovetop for ~aesthetics~ but also because they'll use it all the time. I leave mine out all the time for both reasons!

13. A set of storage scrunchies that'll help them skip bringing along a bag and just keeping the necessities at their wrist.

Promising review: "BUY IT! You won't regret it. Honestly, this is the coolest thing I’ve bought on Amazon. I hate purses, so being able to stash my money, lip gloss and my car key in my scrunchie is a GAME CHANGER! 10/10 would recommend. Also, the elastic is super strong, so no droopy ponytails, even with all my little items inside!" —Aubree T

"These are brilliant. Very nice quality!! I will buy them again and again!!" —Rebekah

26. A five-pack of washable mesh shopping totes for a très chic solution to them always having to pay for a plastic bag. I own one and can vouch that these beauts ball up into very little space but have some Mary Poppins-like capabilities.

28. A scratch-off world map they can use to plan their next trip and satisfyingly scratch off their bucket list countries. It'll look gorgeous on the wall and serve as some great inspo for saving up for that vacation instead of ordering from their fave neighborhood joint three times a week.

29. A botanical shower curtain because perhaps they've tried and failed at caring for bathroom-friendly plants. (Relatable.)

35. A six-pack of scarf scrunchies for a one-and-done task of putting up their hair and adding a glam touch even if they have to do some REAL math to figure out the last time they washed it.

I own this beaut in the dark blue and it looks gorgeous sitting on my kitchen stovetop. As a French-press user who consumes a worrying amount of coffee, I use main daily and it seems to get whistling faster than other kettles I've had in the past. It's sturdy and sleek, and I can tell it's going to be a keeper for a *very* long time. 

Get it from Caraway for $195 (available in six colors).
