    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year 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!)

    10. A cleaning pen that'll *gently* revive the look of their jewels that they DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE have grown cloudy over time. Don't worry, it's made with micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer for a pro-level shine at the price of your morning coffee order.

    11. A phone lamp to corral their phone's flashlight in times of need... even while camping!

    15. A tactical writing pen with a point that'll break glass or serve as a weapon against an attacker if ya' need it to. This takes the pen being a sword to a whole other level. Hopefully you'll use it for writing considerably more often than breaking glass.

    16. Ice grips so trekking across snowy sidewalks in cute shoes won't be a problem.

    30. Stainless-steel straws and a cleaning tool so their at-home iced coffee obsession won't create an island of plastic straws in the ocean. Also the steel just makes the coffee taste even colder!!

    the straws

    38. A spare pair of earbuds because these tiny things we rely on so heavily are incredibly easy to lose and these can be their backup! AND these round jacks will fit into the ports on airplanes for those long-haul flights.

    the ear buds

    39. An earbuds holder so sharp, it won't be forgotten!

    48. A Bagnet, aka a magnetized purse hook-type thing that'll let them hang their purse on a metal bathroom stall, bar stool, or any other metal place so they don't have to put their nice bag on the floor. (ICK!)

    49. A beard balm for eliminating itch and beardruff, and giving 'em the most magnificent facial hair in their damn life.
