Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A beginner's guide to calligraphy that is far more thorough and specific about technique and ink types than other versions, so they'll be sending you fancy pants formal invitations to their dog's Zoom birthday party in no time.

Promising review: "I’ve tried several instructional books on hand lettering. This book is the best by far. I won’t say the names of the other books but suffice it to say they are all at the top of the list when you search for hand lettering. It is the only book that gives practice for the base strokes and also discusses posture and how to hold the pen and at what angle to the paper. It is also a lovely book to work with; nice art work/illustrations. I recommend this book to other beginners out there!" —Karen Rorick

Price: $21.22

2. A pair of glowing light saber chopsticks to bring balance to the Force *and* to their sushi — whether they're repping the dark side or the light.

Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Amazon

As you can see from the above GIF, I bought these for myself, and I love them to pieces. TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat. Sometimes I just keep them in my work area to light them up during the day to feel fancy. They toggle back and forth between a bunch of different colors, like red, blue, yellow, purple, and multicolor, so you can either make them match *or* have a red and blue one together and bring ~balance~ to the Force.

Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

Price: $12.97

3. An adorably encouraging daily planner they can fill out throughout the course of each day — a super cute gift for the friend who likes to keep organized.

A blank page of the planner

Each planner comes with 50 tear-off sheets the size of a standard piece of paper.

Promising review: "Love the layout of this, it's the best layout I have seen yet! Bought as a gift but loved it so much I kept it. Sturdy paper, love that it's not so much a year's planner but a fun and organized daily schedule generator. I also use a yearly planner but I will never be without this! I can write out all the details on this that won't fit on yearly planner and rip off the page and take it with me. Love love love it!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $10.99

4. A pair of wireless sleep headphones that will play white noise or the music of their choice (read: all of Harry Styles' Fine Line) in a comfy headband, so they don't have to risk their ears getting sore while they snooze.


Psst — they can also use these to keep their ears warm during walks or run in the colder months!

Promising review: "I did not expect the fit to be so lightweight and comfortable. It's almost like having nothing on your head! Super comfy. The sound quality is great considering the speakers aren't actually inside your ears. I like that you can turn up the volume and the person next to you can't hardly hear the speakers and yet you can still hear what's going on around you! I made calls using this and the quality is amazing. It's better than any other Bluetooth I've used. No static and you are able to whisper if needed and the person on the other end can hear you just fine!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $19.99

5. A beloved Carharrt beanie (that has over 99,000 positive reviews!!) to help them stave off the cold all winter long, keeping their noggin both super warm and — perhaps most importantly of all — color-coordinated to their other winter gear. This comes in so many colors that whoops, you might just buy one for every person on your list.,

Promising review: "Best type of this hat I've owned. I like this particular hat because it's long enough that, if it's really cold, you can pull the hat all the way down and double the fabric over your ears to keep them warmer. Most types of these hats I find are not deep enough to do that. So this is by far my favorite cold weather hat. Carhartt put some thought into this hat, and it paid off. Superior." —Dave

*Another* promising review: "This is the warmest, best hat ever. I've never really worn hats, living in California, but have had to go to Minnesota and other cold places recently for work, and it keeps my head SO WARM. It's soft (I hate even the tiniest bit of scratchy feeling) and the purple sage color is muted and elegant and lovely. I don't think I will ever buy another kind of hat again!" —Lia

Price: $16.99 (available in one size and 25 styles)

6. A compact light-therapy lamp to mimic the morning sun and give them a lil' boost of energy and happiness — this UV-free lamp has three different brightness settings to bring the perfect amount of light to their life.


It also comes with a timer, so they can set it to stay on anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes before it shuts off automatically. They recommend users start with ten minutes (and avoid staring directly at it) to see how it impacts mood and energy before trying it for longer periods of time. Many reviewers swear by this for helping improve their mood, energy levels, and sleep by getting more "sunlight" in darker months when they might not actively be getting as much.

Promising review: "This was wonderful the first instant I used it. I sat in silence on a dark morning with my coffee, having the light indirectly on me (two feet away) as I enjoyed the silence and my cat. By the end of the first cup of coffee, I was feeling a bit more awake (10 minutes into the 20-minute cycle I chose.) I suffer from SAD every single year. This year promises to be an easier year with this AMAZINGLY BRIGHT light. It means it when it says do not stare at it. However, that should be common sense. Three light settings, and you can either turn it on until you have 'had enough,' or use the hour-long timer which is divided into 10-minute increments. I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!!!" —Lonnie C. Appleby

Price: $28.89

7. A heat-changing retro Super Mario Bros. mug so they can use their coffee to level up to whatever Bowsers they encounter through their day.


Promising review: "Awesome mug. Perfect for anyone looking for a cool mug or a gift. A MUST for any Nintendo, Mario, NES fan." —Mark Edgell

Price: $24.99

8. A super popular time-marked water bottle that comes in a bajillion different colors to help motivate them to stay hydrated. Come for the fun colors, but stay for the super handy flip top lid and silicone, leakproof spout that actually makes drinking water seem — dare I say — fun?,

Promising review: "I love the finish on the bottle! I hate holding wet water bottles and this does NOT sweat! It also holds two full bottles of 16.9-oz. packages water bottles so it’s very easy to get my full water intake on the go! Easy to carry, fits in my car's cup holders perfectly (not big at all like some water bottles). I got the ombré purple to teal and it’s very true to color. Easy to clean, wide enough for bottle brushes, and the straw stays put. I also love how I just push the little button by the mouthpiece and it just pops open quick for easy drinking (if you’re driving and don’t need to be messing around opening bottles😉). Highly recommend this water bottle. For the price, it’s amazing! Keeps my water cool for hours too." —Alicia

Price: $17.99 (available in 17 colors)

9. An Embark dog DNA test perfect for anyone with a furry friend. All they have to do is send a swab of Fido's cheek, and it'll narrow their doggy heritage down to 250 breeds *plus* test for over 160 diseases and drug sensitivities!

Promising review: "Very cool. My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a border collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality a border collie. Come to find out he’s a Shih-tzu–pit bull mix, which makes way more sense." —dede123

Price: $159

10. A hanging eucalyptus so they can spruce up their space with just a smidgen of sprigs. Honestly, they won't beleaf what a difference this wall decor makes!


Promising review: "Wow! I've been looking for eucalyptus leaves for a while but haven't been able to find one with a branch and string like this. It matches perfectly with my room decor. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves plants. It's a beautiful product, a must buy!" —Steven Johnson

Price: $24.99+ (available in two sizes).

11. A love language card game that'll be a fun way to spend your holiday together, while teaching you both how best to show your love to each other.


Promising review: "I wanted to find some ways to get to know my boyfriend better as I’ve asked every question I could possible think of, LOL. I didn’t look at a single card before we played and it really helped further strengthen our relationship. The different categories make sure you leave no part of your significant others life unturned! I highly recommend!" —Braxton

Price: $24.95

12. A set of three tarot tapestries (in a blessedly '70s color palette) they can hang on their bare walls to make them instantly brilliant.


I recently bought these for my apartment! The colors are true to the image and *seriously* lovely. I have them up on my wall above some bamboo-covered mirrors and they have definitely helped make the corner look complete.

Promising review: "These are so cute. The material is thick and they look just as pictured. They're actually better than I expected – a great deal for the price. I would buy again!" —Olivia Moore

Price: $14.41

13. Crafting with Cat Hair to let your BFF know you love them *and* their furocious affection for their four legged baby.


Promising review: "With the help of this book, my wife has made all of the Christmas gifts for our friends and family. I highly recommend this book to anyone who, like my wife, has shedding cats in their house." —Dennis Regling

Price: $9.38

14. A cooling weighted blanket with natural glass beads on the inside for weighted pressure, a gift that will quickly become their favorite thing in their bedroom — a lot of reviewers mention it's helped them with insomnia and anxiety.

Promising review: "Quarantine had me lonely, so I got this and it really helped me sleep. It feels like a hug. My friend, many states away, was stressed and lonely in his quarantine, so I got him one too, and he sleeps like a baby now. Wonderful for self or gift. I don't personally find it too hot in the summer if it's under 74 degrees, but If it's hotter than that, it might be too hot/heavy. Highly recommend." —Penny

Price: $23.99+ (available in 14 varied sizes and weights)

15. A carbonated face mask for helping them feel bubbly inside and out., Amazon

This mask helps remove blackheads and exfoliate pores.

Promising review: "Literally made my boyfriend's blackheads disappear! Made our faces feel so clean. I'm a mask junkie and have gotten masks from all the top brands from drugstores, Lush, Sephora, and Ulta. This is one of my new favorites! Also so much fun to watch it bubble up – feels like a spa treatment." —Katie Mitchell

Price: $10.78

16. A pair of suede boots that'll match everything in their closet (even dresses they still want to wear during the winter) and still be comfy to walk in when it's cold outside.

Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "These are seriously the cutest fall/winter boot. And what a bargain for the quality of these! They don't fall down at the thigh but also aren't overly tight and uncomfortable. They are definitely true to size so I would recommend ordering the same size you normally do." —Gabriella

Price: $36.88+ (available in sizes 5.5-10 and 14 colors and styles).

17. Bond Touch bracelets that'll give your partner a subtle sign of love whenever they're missing you. They'll seriously melt when they receive a "touch" and their wrist lights up during the day or night.

Amazon, Amazon / Via

Here's how it works: Slip on the bracelets, sync them with the Bond Touch App, and you can send touches (aka the bracelets light up) if you can't physically be together.

Promising review: "Loved being able to give this gift to my boyfriend. We are in a long-distance relationship living over an hour away from one another. With our very busy life schedules it makes it hard to always text to let each other know we’re thinking about the other person. This product is great! We can let each other know throughout the day we’re thinking about them with our secret touch codes." —Amazon Customer

Price: $108 for a pack of two bracelets.

18. A fun coloring book because it'll let your friend end their work day with happy hour animals. Each coloring page has drink recipes, so they can sip on a spritzer or cosmo while they color their heart out at home.

Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I love coloring and I love cocktails, so this coloring book couldn't be more perfect! I usually like to drink alcohol and color on my Friday nights, so this makes it even more fun!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $7.97.

19. A bath caddy because they'll love spending their OOO time sipping wine and reading a juicy bestseller in the tub. This tray is expandable and can also fit a tablet, in case they want to binge-watch their fave TV shows too.

Promising review: "This baby is awesome! There’s nothing quite like relaxing in the tub after an exhausting day, and having the luxury of this table to put your glass of wine and your tablet on so you can drink wine and watch your favorite TV shows in peace!" —Kat

Price: $34.99

20. A Bed Head Wave Artist Deep Waver if they want gorgeous, beachy waves without spending hours at the salon. Boost shine and keep strands frizz-free with this great styling tool.,

Promising review: "Okay, I love this thing so much. My hair is down to my chest and I love to curl it, but have zero patience to do so. This is very easy to use and makes my hair look great, as well as cuts curling time in half. I've already had two friends ask me what I used to curl my hair and one ordered it for herself and I gifted one to my other friend." —Marianne R. Brown

Price: $28.50+ (available in two colors).

21. Running shoes they'll love if their feet hurt all the dang time. Midsole cushioning and a comfy shape will literally leave them on Cloud 9 whenever they exercise.,

Promising review: "Beautiful shoes! I bought them to use as indoor workout shoes and they fit like a glove in my original size (8). I was worried the tongue would rub on my ankle because of how these are designed, but they didn’t upon multiple uses. I primarily use them for various aerobic exercises, like walking on the treadmill or elliptical." —Sarah S.

Price: $42.70+ (available in women's sizes 5-12 and 43 colors).

22. A charcuterie board that is what charcuterie board dreams are made of. IDK if you'll be able to give this gift away...

round charcuterie board with two layers that open up to provide more space

The set includes the four bowls and a matching knife set with four utensils.

Promising review: "It really is beautiful! The packaging is super elegant! The wood is nice and thick. The ceramic dishes are generous in size and four was really enough for the kalamata olives, pickled onions, roasted peppers and black olives. All three cheeses fit nicely in the center. The utensils worked very well and storing them inside was a nice touch. The magnetic closure worked well. Overall, we really liked it, and will use it each time we have an 'appetizer meal'. It is beautiful as well as practical!" —Mona Amer

Price: $64.99

23. A spirit infusion kit to take 'em from rookie to mixologist in no time. Handcrafted pomegranate vodka? How do you sign up to be a taste tester...?

This set includes a recipe book and instruction guide, 1,000-mL infusion jar, liquor bottle with cork top, funnel, strainer, mesh filter, and a chalkboard tag for labeling.

Promising review: "This is a quality DIY kit that teaches you how to infuse spirits! The book's instructions are easy to follow and enjoyable to read, this book alone is worth the price of the entire kit!. Each item is of the highest quality in materials! I have several batches infusing to give as gifts and/or use for cocktail parties." —CJB

Price: $42.99

24. A matching tie-dye lounge set because we are extending permanent loungewear into 2021 *bangs gavel*. Be the good friend and add to their ever-growing collection with this cutie set.


Promising review: "Best purchase I’ve made on Amazon. SUPER soft and comfy. The top is definitely larger than the bottoms when it comes to accurate sizing, but I like my pajamas to fit loose so it doesn’t bother me too much. Other than that, no complaints!" —stephen

Price: $30.99 (available in women's sizes S-XXL and nine prints)

25. A custom-dyed, ribbed-stretch hair wrap — in possibly the most gorgeous set of colors I have ever laid my eyes on — that they can style in a variety of ways. But guys, the colors...

Two models wearing different color hair wraps and styled in different ways

The hair wraps are featured on Oprah's Favorite Things list on Amazon, and are from a Black-woman owned business, The Wrap Life. Each color is inspired by Pantone's 110 skin tone guide in order to complement a diverse range of skin tones. I truly need every color.

Price: $16 (available in six colors)

26. A set of whiskey- and rum-aged coffee beans because just like you and your bestie, booze and brew go together like PB&J.


Promising review: "If you know anyone who likes alcohol and loves coffee this is a perfect gift set for them! I bought this last year for my boyfriend for Christmas, and he loved it! He was using it sparingly because he wanted to save it. The beans are very fresh and smell a lot like the barrels/casks they came from. They grind beautifully and he uses them in his French press. Very impressed with the beans and the customer service from this company! He loves his new box (different flavors!) that he just got for his birthday a few days ago. Looking forward to buying again." —Quincy

Price: $34.95 (available in whole or ground beans and and in packs of three or four).

27. A fashion watch that only *looks* expensive so your wallet can be just as happy as them when they open this!

Promising review: "I ordered this watch not expecting to be blown away because, of the price. Boy, was I wrong! I immediately put on the watch as soon as I opened it up; it fits comfortably and the band wasn’t too small, which I was a little concerned about. I’ll definitely be looking to purchase other styles of this watch. Great buy, especially for the price!" —Jessica Kurry

Price: $17.99+ (available in 10 colors).

28. An oversized, 25-ounce prosecco glass that *computes math* is equivalent to one champagne bottle. Yup. I will let you figure out who needs this one.


Just to break this down further: 25 ounces = four standard-size glasses of bubbly.

Promising review: "I was shocked! At first look, I didn't think one flute glass would hold the entire champagne bottle. IT DOES!" —Vaygar-Ingvald Elmersson

Price: $17.99

29. A salt shooter so they can hunt the trickiest game out there: the pesky housefly. That...or use it to season their food in the most exciting way possible.

Reviewer holding the salt shooter in backyard

This should not be pointed at or used on humans or animals.

Promising review: "This is a beautifully designed product. It shoots a consistent pattern that will knock down flies and wasps at up to four feet away. You can use it indoors, not much salt comes out with each blast. If you do use it indoors, make sure you aren't shooting at windows coated with interior window films; the salt will scratch these. Don't buy this for a young kid. The salt can do serious damage to eyes, and the gun requires more strength to cock than most 11-year-olds have." —Amazon Customer

Price: $44.95

30. A 6-quart Vortex air fryer for making all of their favorite comfort foods — we're talking everything from wings and glazed donuts to charred Brussels sprouts and sesame chicken — *without* having to use hot oil. It's even great for crisping up leftovers!

Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

"I've had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it's become the hero of my kitchen. It preheats quickly, it's large enough to a good amount of food at once, it's easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I've been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night and it makes them taste so good. If you're cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don't get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don't mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there's no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn't believe I made this at home!!"" —Hannah Loewentheil, BuzzFeed writer

Price: $89.95

Check out my colleague's Instant Vortex Air Fryer review for more mouthwatering inspiration!

31. Out of Print toddler socks for the littlest bébé in your circle. To be honest, this is more of a gift for yourself. I mean, their little feet! In these little library socks! It's the joy we need in 2020.

toddler library socks in yellow and pink

These even come in designs inspired by The Little Prince, Where the Wild Things Are, and more!

Promising review: "These socks are adorable! I bought them with a copy of the book for my nephew. The grips on the bottom are great and I love that the pairs can be mixed and matched together. I feel like they were a great deal and so cute. This brand have combined my love of books and socks and continues to be a source of gifts for others and myself." —Madeline Schultz

Price: $12 (for a pack of 12; available in sizes 0-24 months and 2-3T in seven styles).

32. Cravory Cookies so delicious, they'll probably eat all 12 treats in a single sitting (fair). Here are all the individually-wrapped flavors that come in the box: birthday cake, chocolate chip, cookie monster, lemon bar, salted caramel cream, and red velvet. Two of each. I am drooling at the thought.

Promising review: "So happy these cookies are available on Amazon! They are my favorite in San Diego — I even had them at my wedding! Shipping was super fast; they came the next day." —Kate

Price: $35.99 (for 12)

33. A durable and nonstick brownie pan that adds delicious, chewy corners to every brownie they bake for a dessert that has *just* the right amount of crispness. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to a) order this for a friend and b) order this for myself.

Plus, the nonstick coating (and the included spatula) guarantees that no crumbs will be left behind on your pan.

Promising review: "These are the best brownies I have ever cannot stop eating them. I saw this pan on SharkTank and had to try it. I know it's on the expensive side, but it is the only brownie pan you will ever have to buy! I love it!" —globalgamble

Price: $36.95

34. BuzzFeed's Goodful stainless-steel straws for a more eco-friendly approach to sipping their iced coffee. This set comes equipped with two collapsible straws, a cleaning brush, and a carrying pouch — plus, both straws are adjustable in size and can accommodate different cups.


Promising review: "This is a great straw. I had bamboo in the past, but these are much easier to clean and don’t absorb the smell or taste of what you're drinking. The fact that they collapse and have a carrying case that fits in the smallest purse is a big plus for me." —Amazon Customer

Price: $7.82+ (available in two varieties).

35. A quilted fleece pullover they'll feel super cute and super warm in. It doesn't get much better than that!,

Promising review: "I love this sweater!!! It has the coolest button detail that you can button all the way up or have loose like my pics, it’s incredibly soft, and it's amazing quality! I highly recommend this!! If you’re on the verge of sizes, just go up a size because you can’t go wrong with oversized right now!" —Stephanie Mason

Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and eight colors)

36. An illuminating essential oil diffuser to give the gift of aromatherapy to anyone who would enjoy some soothing scents flowing through their home.

reviewer's essential oil diffuser glowing in purple

Promising review: "This is a really great diffuser, especially for a first timer like myself. It's small and simple and also succeeds in freshening up my entire room. The 30-second burst is great at keeping your space feeling and smelling great throughout the day, while the continuous mode lasts for about six hours so I keep it on while I'm sleeping." —Pascal Ibe

Price: $13.99+ (available in four colors)

To take the gift to the next level, you can add a pack of assorted essential oils!

37. A pair of versatile high-waisted leggings with pockets (!!!) for the friend or sibling who lives in leggings. Trust me, they can never have too many!,

Promising review: "I’ve been searching for a LONG time on Amazon for the perfect leggings. I wanted high quality like the expensive Lululemon or P’tula without spending a lot of money. After returning many leggings from other sellers, I came across these. I workout a lot and have tried many leggings and these by far are the most comfortable to work out in! They def pass the squat test, are not see through at ALL, and have convenient pockets that I didn’t think I needed but love. My only request is that this company make 7/8 leggings as I think the style is cuter. In the meantime I just roll the bottom on the pants up like in the photo. Again, great product and I’ll def order in another color! Truly unbeatable for the price and quality!" —Alexa

Price: $21.95+ (available in sizes XS–3X and 38 colors and quantities)

Check out more details on why people love these high-waisted leggings.

38. A microwavable lavender scented plush sloth to be the best cuddle buddy for anyone who needs one. When heated, this little guy can help soothe aches and pains and the lavender scent just makes it that much more relaxing.,

Promising review: "Bought him to help with my endometriosis cramping. I’m so happy with my purchase! Not only is he cute, he is very soothing. He is weighted so he feels slightly heavy. When heated he is warm and smells oh-so-lovely of lavender. He works wonderful for cramps. I would also recommend him for children. He would make a great soothing companion. For a stuffed animal he seems to have lots of character/personality. Kudos to whomever designed this guy!" —Marie May

Price: $21.50

39. Faux fur memory foam slide slippers — anyone who gets them will immediately say, "Ohhhh, thank you!" because there's nothing quite like a nice pair of cozy slippers that will ensure your feet don't overheat.,

Promising review: " I love my slippers soooo much!!! They are so incredibly soft, warm, and comfortable! Just the right amount of thickness. These are also sooo cute. I'm obsessed, especially since the floors of my room get so cold in the winter. This would make a perfect gift for someone as well." —m.t

Price: $19.99+ (available in women's sizes 5-10 and in 10 colors)

40. A Corgi succulent vase that's a ~dog~-gone good way to bring a smile to your friend's face and a bit of happiness when they look at it and remember who gave it to them.,

Promising review: "I bought this for a friend's birthday because he is absolutely obsessed with Corgis. I was afraid that the vase wouldn't have enough packaging and it would arrive broken, but it was tightly secured in a fitting box and was delivered without a scratch. The Corgi vase I got looked exactly like the picture provided and it was just as cute. My friend loved it and it was definitely worth the purchase." —Bianca Marciano

Price: $5.99

41. A loop-through faux fur stole perfect for the bougie-est person on your list who take their style seriously. This epic stole will make them feel like a million bucks — and look like a million bucks at the same time.

Reviewer wearing the faux fur collar scarf in dark blue

Promising review: "Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from such an inexpensive faux fur stole, but WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! The fur is silky smooth and looks close to real. It is a great size....not too large, not too small! It has an unnoticeable loop hole, so the stole can stay put instead of sliding everywhere and having to 'hold on' to it with clenched arms. I bought this for my Great Gatsby dress and it fits in perfectly with the dress. If you are considering....I say put it in your cart and checkout!! You won't be disappointed!" —rjv4EVER

Price: $6.99+ (available in two sizes and 12 colors)

42. A Thaw Claw to defrost meat up to seven times faster. All they have to do is suction it to their sink, fill the sink with water, and then put the frozen food under the claw. It will be defrosted in no time — and they'll never have to remember to take the meat out of the fridge in the morning again. (Why is that always the hardest thing to do?!?)


Plus, this Black-owned and invented product fits in all sinks no matter the size or type.

Promising review: "A package of frozen meat would have taken at least two days to thaw in the fridge. I used this for a 2-pound package a couple of days ago, and the meat was thawed within 90 minutes. One of the most practical kitchen gadgets I own." —Llda Schellhase

Price: $19.95 (available in three colors).

43. A microwave popper so they can make delicious homemade popcorn in a matter of minutes. Once they try it this way, they'll realize it's a much ~butter~ way to make this delicious snack than buying all those microwave packets from the store.

The red bowl with a clear top with popped popcorn in it and a model's hands pulling it out of a microwave.

All you have to do is put popcorn seeds into the bowl, add some butter or oil, and put it in the microwave for three to four minutes. Plus, the bowl collapses, so you can store it easily in a cabinet when you're not using it.

Promising review: "Amazing! I love that I do not have to buy microwave popcorn anymore! This is so easy. I bought one for my parents who still make their popcorn in a kettle on the stove top. They use theirs almost every night! My mom’s favorite part is that now dad makes the popcorn; her second favorite part is that it collapses for easy storage. Dad’s favorite part is that nearly every kernel pops, so there is less waste. The silicone is food-grade quality. I highly recommend this product to all popcorn lovers out there!" —Stephanie Launier

Price: $15.90 (available in 23 colors)

44. A portable blender so they can make a delicious smoothie in seconds anywhere. Yep, you read that right, *anywhere*. We're talking at work, home, on the street, or at the gym.

This 14-ounce jar is dishwasher safe and charges with a USB. Plus, it's quiet, so you don't have to worry about annoying the people around it when you use it.

Promising review: "This blender is amazing! I am a yoga teacher and always on the run, which sometimes makes it hard to eat well. I bought this after reviewing quite a few different options and I am SO glad I did. It fits well into my gym bag, is surprisingly quiet when in use, and holds a charge really well. The blades are very efficient and I’ve had no trouble blending up ice or frozen fruit. Seriously cannot recommend it enough." —Amazon Customer

Price: $36.99 (available in four colors)

45. A pair of socks they can put on after they've had a long day and need a bit of R&R (aka some wine).

A pair of grey socks where one says "If You Can Read This" on the sole and the other has "Bring Me Some Wine" on it with the box next to it

Promising review: "These are pretty comfy, but no one brought me my wine. I had to get up to get it. Maybe after a wash or two?" —Elizabeth Molton

Price: $9.95

46. A gorgeous authentic jade roller and gua sha set they can treat themselves to during a much-deserved DIY spa day (or every day, tbh).

Promising review: "I love my quartz roller and I use it every morning! The quartz feels cool on my face ad I love the way it de-puffs my under eye bags, making me look and feel younger. I use with upward/sideway motions to energize and invigorate my facial muscles, and with downward/sideway motions for lymphatic drainage, which is very relaxing, so I prefer this technique as an evening routine. I am so in love with this tool and I highly recommend it!" —MBC

Price: $13.99

47. A Himalayan salt rock night light that'll give off a warm, comforting glow, act as a natural air filter, and add a little extra ~zen~ to their home.,

Brittany here! I have two of these, one in my bedroom and one in my bathroom, and am currently in the process of purchasing more because I love them so much. Yay, super cute and simple decor with a purpose!

Promising review: "This night light is fantastic. It’s so strong and secure. It seems more expensive than it was. The Himalayan lamp part wraps 360 degrees around the bulb and is thick. I highly recommend this nightlight. I plan to buy another one or two for myself and a few to gift." —Olivia Shujew

Price: $13.99

48. A heated back and neck massager that will def win you the title of "Best Gifter EVER" in anyone's book.


Brittany again! I am just a *little* obsessed with this. As someone who loves deep-tissue massages (treat yourself, am I right?), this is basically the holy grail of at-home back and neck massagers. It has three speeds and eight deep-kneading nodes, so it's pretty customizable. You can also turn the heated option off if that's not your thing.

Promising review: "I wish that there were more stars available to rate this product, because I would rate it a 10 if I could. Almost 40 years old over here and have had back problems off and on for years now. Recently I have been unable to relieve pain in neck and back from stress but this product instantly helped. Between the heat, the ability to move around and adjust placement from shoulders to neck to lower back feels amazing. You can literally feel the knots and tension being massaged away. I cannot recommend this product highly enough." —James

Price: $49.99+ (available in two colors)
