1. A pair of wireless sleep headphones so versatile and comfy that they can use them for long stretches at home, whether it's for white noise to fall asleep at night or soothing meditations and podcasts during the day.

2. A pretty pastel mug warmer to keep their coffee and tea piping hot long after they brew it, because the best part of being at home is taking their sweet, sweet time.

3. A memory foam seat cushion for their tushy that a lot of reviewers swear by to reduce pressure on their tailbone and help with lower back pain from prolonged sitting in chairs that weren't designed for it (which is, unfortunately, *most* chairs we own).

4. An assortment of international snacks so they can take an entire delicious trip around the globe without ever leaving the living room.

5. A moon lamp perfect for that ~aesthetic~ friend who loves to spend Friday nights at home — this is the ultimate soothing, celestial vibe.

UMMMM I bought this because it was on one of Amazon's top-selling products pages for so long that I was like, "Why are people so obsessed with this moon!!" And now, my friends, I know. First of all, it really does look hyper realistically like a small moon and adds a chill vibe wherever you plant it. But it's also just so soothing to watch and have in the periphery. You can control dozens of different colors for it and either keep it on those colors or have them alternate, fade quickly, or fade gradually. It's super easy to charge and controlled by a remote, so you can move it off its stand and have it light up wherever you want. These days I tend to turn it on for my designed ~me time~ night every week, in which I will light a candle, pour a glass of red wine, read a romance novel, and, of course, light my lil' moon. Definitely one of my favorite "the internet made me do it" purchases.

6. An adorably encouraging daily planner they can fill out to give their day some sense of order and structure, which can *all* too easily fly out the window when they're spending a lot of time at home left to their own devices.

7. Plus a set of eye-popping fine point pens designed for planners and journals, so they can — gasp — color-code their tasks, putting a fun twist on them that makes it all the more motivating to stay focused 🌈.

Fine point pens in 18 different colors

8. A copy of The Book of Myself: A Do-It-Yourself Autobiography in 201 Questions that's perfect for any stage of life, whether your giftee is already a hardcore journaler or a newbie who wants to take it to the next level.

9. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet so cute it'll take their mind off the *constant* dishwashing loads that come with being at home more often. This lil' bub is reversible, so they'll always know whether the dishes in the dishwasher are "clean" or "dirty" and avoid any dirty-dish-related mishaps.

10. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey so they can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to at-home meals that might otherwise feel totally "blah" by now. (No offense to microwave pizza! She's trying her best.)

11. A compact light therapy lamp that thousands of reviewers swear by — this UV-free bb is smaller than other models, making it easier to use on a desktop for longer sessions on days when they're too busy to get away from the computer during prime daylight hours.

12. An adjustable bamboo bathtub tray that will turn their boring bathroom into a veritable spa. Pinot? Poured. Candle? Lit. Netflix? Queued. Now all they have to do is calmly explain to their loved ones that they live in a tub now.

13. Plus a luxurious bath soak to help calm both their skin *and* their human self — it has CBD in it to promote skin health, Epsom salts for relaxation, and meadowfoam seed oil for that extra hydration that'll make them feel like a happy lil' land mermaid even if they just spent the whole day crouched over a computer screen.

14. A trio lasagna pan perfect for fun dinners at home — this ensures every single piece is a crispy "edge piece," and people in the family with different lasagna preferences can customize their own versions (sometimes they just gotta drown the whole thing in cheese, you dig me?).

FYI, you can 6,000% use these for brownies, blondies, and bread too.

Promising review: "As someone who has a child (now a teenager) who will not eat any form of cheese, this pan is amazing! I typically avoid making any food that has cheese mixed into it but now I can make him a section without cheese and the rest of us our regular cheesy goodness. Another benefit to this pan is how well the portions slice. One cut with the spatula gives you a perfectly formed square. Each section makes four regular-sized portions for our family." —TLC

Shipping: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

15. A mini waffle maker to churn out adorably-sized, perfectly cooked-through waffles in mere minutes — not to mention hash browns, paninis, biscuits, and even (gasp) PIZZA. Why go to the International House of Pancakes when they can just become it?

16. Or an Oprah-approved (no seriously, it's on her 2021 list!) stuffed waffle maker you can gift to your breakfast-loving friend for the best waffle they'll ever have, whether they're biting into thick raspberry jams, a flood of warm Nutella, or even a cozy savory egg or meat. 

Promising review: "What a fantastic invention! I have one in the camper and one at home. Easy to use and easy to clean!!" —Becky B

18. An Atlas Coffee Club subscription for that friend who's always Gilmore Girls level of caffeinated, and can't ever seem to stay fully stocked — this will send them a different gourmet coffee from around the world every month, along with tasting notes, brewing instructions, and a postcard from the country it's from.

19. A Nightmare Before Christmas cookbook complete with everything they need to make some Oogie Boogie eats no matter *what* skill level they're at. This includes 30 recipes inspired by the iconic characters that may be spooky and merry, but will be delicious all year long.

20. A tin of cocktail sugar or salt for the rims of their at-home cocktails that come in so many inventive flavors they might just call the Food Network to get their own bartending show.

21. A glare-free Kindle Paperwhite that is, bless its technological heart, fully waterproof, so they can finally read rom-coms in the bathtub without sending all the unsuspecting characters to an early watery grave.

22. A pair of glowing lightsaber chopsticks, because anyone who said people shouldn't play with their food has *clearly* never experienced the joy of unwinding for the night by simultaneously eating sushi and channeling the Force.

23. A dream balm made with calming herbs and essential oils like lavender, chamomile, mugwort, and valerian to help them nod off to dreamland without relying on melatonin or other sleep aids to get the job done.

24. A beginner's embroidery kit for adults so they can have something soothing to do with their hands while they binge yet another Netflix series full of murder, murder, and a side of...well, murder. (At least now their stitching will be tighter than the main suspect's alibis!)

25. A mini donut maker for anyone with a sweet tooth — truly, is there anything in this universe more relaxing than a warm homemade donut at the end of the day??

26. A Pet House candle with scents that are not only soothing as heck, but are engineered to eliminate those miscellaneous pet and household odors like litter boxes, dog beds, smoke, and cooking smells they're dealing with a lot more often at home.

27. Plus a rose-gold rechargeable electric lighter they'll put to use all OVER the house — not only is it great for deep three-wick candles, but reviewers use it to light burners and fireplaces and to have a generally safer, flameless option at the ready.

28. A Baby Yoda puzzle that essentially proves that the human heart is made up of 500 pieces, and those 500 pieces make up this tiny creature's perfect face.

29. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on their glass in just 20 seconds, so they can rest easy with their Pinot during at-home date nights knowing they've spared themselves the infamous Post-Wine Headache or allergic reactions.

30. A pour-over coffee maker for an easy morning ritual — no muss, no fuss, and no fancy coffee gadgets busting on them and making them regret the day both they and the Starbucks mermaid were born.

31. Or a cold brew coffee maker so gloriously easy to use that all they have to do is stick their favorite ground coffee in the filter, seal the airtight lid on top, and pop it in the fridge overnight. Boom, four cups of cold brew to keep them energized through all...the WFH meetings...that should have been emails.

32. And for the fancy caffeine guzzlers among us, a tiny milk frother that makes rich, creamy froths in seconds. It also doesn't need to be plugged in, cleans with a quick stream of hot running water, and is teensy for storing. (It comes with its own little display stand, though, if they wanna show it off!)

33. A bottle of Dr Teal's soothing lavender foam bath with Epsom salt to help them ~unwind~ at the end of the day, particularly when they're feeling stuffy from spending extra time at home and need a definitive way to put themselves into Sleep Mode.

34. A hanging desk that lets them basically turn any window in their life into a temporary standing desk — now not only will they get a chance to stretch their legs, but they can enjoy their view to the fullest (read: wave profusely at any dogs who happen to be walking by).

35. A mini illuminated relaxation waterfall perfect for when they just need to stare at something relaxing for a bit to calm some of the "AGJAKLFGJAG" in their brain.
