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.

Amazon

Promising review: "This product makes it so easy to fall asleep to music. I am usually a side sleeper. Since I prefer to listen to music to help fall asleep, the other headphones that I have are too bulky to be able to lay on my side, making it uncomfortable. I was excited upon receiving this Bluetooth headband, because not only did it allow me to lay on my side to fall asleep, it helped keep my hair off my face and neck! I connected my phone to this Bluetooth, and had no trouble connecting. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to wear glasses with the band, but it is still comfortable just the same. Would highly recommend this product." —CRH

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).

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

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.

I got one of these for my mom for Christmas (her entire kitchen is pink, it is a Big Mood) and can confirm it is QUITE beautiful in person.

Promising review: "I researched so many coffee warmers and am so glad I decided on this one. It definitely keeps my coffee hot, no matter how long it takes me to drink it. I also like that it has three settings. As you drink down your coffee, you can lower the heat because it keeps the coffee very hot. I like it so much I ordered a second one for another part of the house." —hottytoddy

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).

Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in six colors).

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).

Promising review: "This seat cushion is SO GOOD. I have had a lot of problems with pressure on my tailbone and resulting back problems, and they've been getting worse. I will be honest, I have only tried the old-fashioned medical donuts, so I don't have much to compare it to. However, this cushion is nicely thick, and the cutout and contours are so perfect and they take all pressure off my tailbone. After working for a few hours, I got up and for the first time in almost a year, didn't have pain. Normally, the pressure on my tailbone becomes pretty bad while sitting, but produces an even sharper pain upon standing. Feeling so great for the first time prompted me to buy another for work so I could keep this one at home and never be without it! Hopefully, reducing the pressure on my tailbone will also help it heal, but even being free from pain is wonderful." —CSC

Each assortment is a mix of salty and sweet, and is curated so meltables like chocolate don't ship out in the warmer months!

Promising review: "Fun quarantine activity. The kids absolutely LOVED this, they acted like YouTube unboxers. 😅 We really liked the guide that they sent us. We will be purchasing more from this brand." —Mandy

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

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

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. 

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).

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five sizes). 

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.

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

Promising review: "Super cute and helpful. Exactly what I needed to help me stay on track with working at home during this quarantine." —Arline

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
amazon.com

Perhaps most importantly for anyone out there planning to go full Leslie Knope on these is that they're designed not to bleed through thin pages!

Promising review: "I bought these pens during quarantine, not expecting much, considering they are quite inexpensive. I've used well-known brand marker/pens in the past, and didn't want to pay much for markers I'd use for coloring. I was concerned about the tips bending or bleeding, but I was completely wrong and am very satisfied with this product! They do not bleed, and the tips are strong and thin. I use these pens for coloring, hand lettering, and note taking, and they're exactly what I was looking for! The only regret I have is that I did not order the larger pack with more colors!!" —Michael Fanizzi

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).

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.

The cover of "The Book of Myself: A Do-It-Yourself Autobiography in 201 Questions," by Carl and David Marshall
Hachette Books

This book is a kind of DIY memoir — it goes through three phases of "Early," "Middle," and "Later" years, and has 201 different prompts based on your memories, experiences, and views on the world. Prompts include things like what you would have switched careers to midway through if given the chance, or a present you got from your parents that sticks in your memory, or who you think the funniest person in your family is. This also makes for a lovely gift for family members, so you can all preserve each other's memories!

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); available on Bookshop with standard shipping in 6–12 days. 

Get it from Amazon for $10.59 or from Bookshop (to support local bookstores) for $15.64

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.

Amazon

Promising review: "Who doesn't love Baby Yoda? I was tired of my husband saying he didn't know if they were clean or not and with us being Star Wars fans I had to go with this design — it's just adorable!" —Melsa

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).

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

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.)

Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. Makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." —Martha Ronemus

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).

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.

Promising review: "Effective and convenient. I bought this for myself about a year ago to counteract winter blues. It has been so helpful that I bought another one as gift for my sister-in-law. I'd recommend this for anybody who gets Seasonal Affective Disorder." —David McClure

Shipping: Usually ships within nine days; non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

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.

amazon.com, Via amazon.com

Not only is it size adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candleholder, and extra space for whatever else their cozy heart desires.

Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

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).

Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in five colors).

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.

Each bath soak contains 25 mg of broad-spectrum hemp extract, is distributed in recyclable packaging, and is vegan and cruelty-free.

Promising review: "I had no idea a bath bomb could do so much! I’ve been a lover of lush bath bombs for years because they smell good and they’re pretty, but I never felt that they left my skin soft or relaxed after. THIS is an absolute game changer. It releases an oil in the water that softens and hydrates the skin like no other. It smells refreshing like eucalyptus which I love! The only thing I don’t like is it leaves the water clear, so I like to add another colored bath bomb or bubble bath. The CBD is subtle, but definitely there. I slept so well that night! I will definitely make this a staple in my monthly extra self-care night." —becky990

Shipping: Standard shipping with expedited shipping for an additional cost. Members get free two-day shipping.

Get it from Sephora for $15.

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).

Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

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?

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "YES! Tiny Eggo-sized waffles! Put anything into it — hash browns, tater tots, waffle mix, canned biscuits! Add nuts and berries and things! It even comes with a little recipe booklet! It fits in the palm of your hand, you could literally stuff it in the back of a drawer, but you won't, because as soon as you get it everyone wants mini waffles for every meal. It heats up super fast and is a breeze to clean. If you're making a whole mess of waffles, be sure to give it a quick spritz of nonstick spray every couple waffles or so, so it doesn't rend your delicious waffles asunder. Excellent value." —Bryce Pierce

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).

Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in ten shape and color varieties).

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.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

I started putting this on my end-of-the-week whiskey drink (2021 made me go full Mad Men, who knew!!) and it is SO darn satisfying. I tried the citrus petals version, and it's got a light lemon, faint floral, and vaguely minty taste with its sweetness that just makes the whole experience a delight and a half. The container it comes in is actually quite wide, so what we did was pour lemon juice on the top half to prep the rim, and a bit of sugar in the bottom half to coat it. In other news, I am officially too fancy to exist.

Promising review: "Since COVID-19 I have become my own bartender. Taco Tuesdays and margaritas! The lime comes through so well with this salt. I use it for Bloody Marys as well. It is thick and chunky so its a learning curve to get the right amount of salt on. Don't press down too hard if you don't like a lot of salt. I do like extra salt but my husband said it was a little much for him, so I have mastered just a light salt for him." —cobrajet427

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).

Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in nine flavors).

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.

Amazon, amazon.com

This will not only hold thousands of books, but will let them read the *chef's kiss* way they like best — they can customize it with all their favorite fonts and layouts, and organize their virtual shelves to their precise standards. Bonus — its charge lasts weeks (plural!!).

Promising review: "I am an avid reader and adore the new Paperwhite! To me, it’s the perfect reader. No light bleeds through, easy to control the amount of backlight, easy to download books, and simply just easy to read my books. It did not come with the very latest software uploaded but within 24 hours of being connected to my Wi-Fi, the Kindle updated itself. Using overdrive on my phone or tablet, it’s easy to borrow books and return books from my library. The newest update allows you to return right from your Paperwhite and that is a huge improvement. As a Prime member, I get a free book every month plus I follow several emails that alert to free or greatly discounted books. 8 GB of storage is way more than enough for me. I find the weight to be significantly less than a paperback even with a case. I am happy with this purchase!" —Sherry Thurman

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).

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.

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

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).

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.

Woodland Herbal/Etsy

Woodland Herbal is an Ohio-based Etsy shop established in 2018 that specializes in skincare, salves, and tea blends.

Promising review: "I tried it last night and I haven’t slept this hard in a long time. The smell alone is soothing when you put it on your temples as you drift off to sleep. I usually toss and turn but I slept like a rock." —Emily Irvin

Shipping: The seller lists the estimated arrival time in one to two weeks. 

Get it from Woodland Herbal on Etsy for $13.50.

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!)

Amazon

Each kit comes with a simple design, a cotton cloth, a bamboo embroidery hoop, a little scissor, colored threads, embroidery needles, and instructions, so you should be raring to go when it arrives!

Promising review: "I’ve never done anything like this before, but I like to try new things, and I’ve just recently moved and wanted to decorate my house with some handmade decor. This kit is a great value for the price! It came with the hoop, more than enough thread, and two needles! The printed pattern is very clear and easy to follow, and the little sheet of instructions on what stitch to use and how to do it is clear enough (and anything I don’t understand I just watch a tutorial on YouTube). I’m about three hours into the project already and I didn’t want to put it down last night. I was up until 2 a.m. stitching away! It’s fun, simple, and it’s going to look very cute next to my collection of cacti!! Thank you for a great quality product, and for allowing me to add another hobby to my ever growing stack!" —Abby

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).

Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in nine different patterns).

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??

Amazon, amazon.com

The donuts cook within minutes, have an auto shutoff to stop them from overheating, and come with a recipe book that even includes gluten-free and Paleo-friendly options. Bonus? You don't even need to figure out how to make donuts — this machine will take store bought brownie, muffin, and cake mix just fine.

Promising review: "I cannot say enough about the Dash Mini Donut Maker. It is so much fun to use and make donuts at home. Rather than going to the local chain donut restaurant, you can make your own specialty donuts at home. It is very easy to use and cleans up quickly. My children love to decorate the donuts after they are cooked. It's a fun family activity and the donuts taste great! Also, it comes with a neat design and stands out among my other boring looking kitchen cooking appliances. If you like donuts, this product is for you." —JoshH

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).

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.

Amazon

Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised with these candles — the powerful scent enveloped my kitchen and part of my entrance hall, that's how potent this beautiful scent is. I chose to use the vanilla crème brûlée — wow wow wow. Absolutely amazing. Not once do you think that this is a pet odor eliminator candle as the scent envelopes my ground floor with a warm fuzzy happy feeling. Which we all need during this worldwide lockdown." —Maria Puzone

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.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (LOL, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it.

Promising review: "Wow. This thing is amazing. Small and so easy to use. My husband kept saying it won’t actually light anything and was blown away when it did. We lit candles and paper to use as tinder with absolutely no effort. No fuel needed. Just a quick recharging. And no waste in throwing away those huge and never easy to use butane sticks. Love love it. Easy buying process so I would recommend everyone buy one." —Diane Bold

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.

amazon.com, Amazon

*Hamilton voice* "Look at my SON..."

Promising review: "Not only is this puzzle exciting as a Mando fan but also as a Star Wars fan! I couldn’t wait to get started on it! Once I opened it and started piecing together the 'outer rim.' 😂 I was DELIGHTED to find that the puzzle pieces were a great size, not too big and not too small! Once I started on filling it in, I was MORE excited to find that it was challenging without being maddening!! Total spent four hours straight puzzling with a few smoke breaks. All in all, a GREAT puzzle for one person, or a family!!!! Put on some Star Wars or Mando and you have yourself a heck of an evening in!!!! Recommended to all!" —Tiffany Davis

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.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends one to two drops for each glass of white wine, two to three for a glass of red, and seven to nine if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: "For many years, I have been that friend who always says 'no thanks, I can't drink wine.' Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too — so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don't have a migraine the next day. I'm so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It's easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more." —Mackenzie

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.

Promising review: "In my effort to slow my life down, I am choosing to make coffee in smaller, more 'hand-crafted' quantities. It's paying off for me in a better-tasting cup of coffee ... and making me slow down and take more time with life. You can actually taste the difference in this coffee maker and pot at a time coffee. I am no longer making a pot, grabbing and gulping. I am now lingering in the making and drinking which adds to the enjoyment. Bought my daughter one too, so that she will start slowing down and smelling the coffee." —Deborah Daniel

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.

Promising review: "With the indefinite work from home situation 2020 has put us in, I had a real craving for my Starbucks iced coffee especially as the weather has gotten warmer. Since I can't go out and get my expensive iced coffee, I decided to get this product to make it myself. Best decision ever. It's very easy to make smooth, delicious iced coffee overnight and have a perfect brew in the morning." —Shelby

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.

Promising review: "I needed something to help me relax that was not a nap and this did it for me! I used this in an evening bath. Not only did it help me relax, it also helped me fall asleep so well that night. I tend to stay awake in bed (usually on my phone) most nights, but after this bath I fell asleep right away. It didn't bubble a whole lot for me, but it smelled amazing and made my skin the softest it's been in a long time! It's a good-sized bottle with a sufficient amount of baths per bottle. Overall, I loved it. I don't take baths too often, but this has inspired me to do this more! 10/10 would buy again." —Priscilla Perez

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.

Promising review: "Awesome addition to my workspace environment. I've tried several fountains so far. This one is awesome, the pump is quiet, as is the water, it simply provides a really nice environmental impact on my workspace. I run it up to eight hours in a day, use distilled water only and clean it periodically, and it's running just like new after several weeks. Not all of the fountains that I've tried work quite so well, I'm impressed and happy with this purchase. Six-month update: If I could give this thing 6 stars, I would. It runs so quiet, and I nearly let it go dry last weekend (three-day weekend and forgot to turn it off...) — once I filled it up again it was just as quiet as ever. I'm beyond impressed. Still cleaning it periodically and using only distilled water." —Rod

36. A produce saver storage container designed with special vents to keep their fruits and veggies fresh longer, so they can take their sweet time going through this week's grocery haul without panic-throwing all their produce into dishes where they don't belong.

amazon.com

Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE these! We buy only organic produce which does not tend to last very long and when you pay as much as we do for organic you don't want it going bad so fast. My favorite thing about these is that it keeps my lettuce crisp and fresh for weeks not days. I've been able to buy bunches of lettuce and keep them in the fridge for several weeks. I keep the second container for strawberries, asparagus, blueberries, etc. and it keeps them fresh for way longer now. Not only that but it prevents them from molding after only a few days so I'm not worried about having to eat my strawberries in two days now. Will definitely be buying more in the future. Totally worth every penny and super easy to wash and dry." —Jessica

Promising review: "Love this. I have many items to plug in now that I have to office at home. There’s plenty of room to plug in two laptops, a computer, a monitor and my Alexa safely. It’s a little bulkier than I was expecting but that is due to the room your items will need." —Jennifer

39. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker that doubles as a serving bowl, so they can pop movie-theater-level corn with the tap of a few buttons. All they have to do is add generic kernels + whatever oils or butters they feel in their heart, and they'll be raring to go.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a fast, effective, and low-cost means to prepare popcorn. I got tired of paying a premium for microwave popcorn packets at the grocery. I didn’t want another appliance on my counter to air pop either. This was the perfect solution. I use inexpensive bulk popping corn, no oil or salt and I don’t have to worry about the metal in the microwave popcorn bags that gets extremely hot and scorches the upside down paper plate I have to put under the microwave bag each time. Plus, weren’t we told not to put anything metal in the microwave anyway? I pull the Salbree out, expand it and add a 1/4 cup of popping corn kernels in the base to the full line. I put it in the microwave for three-plus minutes and listen for the kernels to stop popping. Using the cool handles I lift it out of the microwave, give it a minute to cool and add just enough butter to give it flavor. Then I eat right out of the same bowl I cooked in. When done I dump out the few kernels that didn’t pop. I wash it out with dish soap and hot water, let it dry, and then put it away for next time. Economical, safe, less oil and salt, and only one bowl to clean. No new appliance and no metal in the microwave. Pure genius. A great value." —RobG

40. *Plus* a cult-favorite ~secret~ popcorn salt that anyone in the movie theater industry will tell you is a perfect dupe for that oh so savory buttery goodness everyone loves to inhale before the previews begin. Not to be dramatic about popcorn on main, but this stuff is game changing.

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, amazon.com

Our family recently unearthed this because beloved To All The Boys I've Loved Before author Jenny Han mentioned that it was her secret to delicious popcorn, and it may have just wrecked me for other at-home popcorn for the rest of my life. It genuinely tastes just as salty and buttery and savory as fresh movie theater popcorn. I inhaled it so fast that every single one of my organs lit up in mild alarm.

Promising review: "I used to use Flavacol during my time working at an amusement park and popping popcorn for hungry guests, so I knew this was what the 'professionals' use. I am happy to report that using this does make your popcorn taste like it was just popped at a movie theater. I like to put a little bit of oil on my kernels, mix in some Flavacol, and then add it to the pot of oil on my stove top when it's hot enough (as opposed to sprinkling it on top of freshly popped corn, which I could see easily accidentally adding too much). It also means that I'm no longer loading up my popcorn with additional toppings like butter or plain salt. Yum!" —Kate R.

41. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 230,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds to pretty much revolutionize at-home workouts — they're made with silicone that helps them stick to their ears and are so sweat- and waterproof they can legitimately take them INTO THE SHOWER.

amazon.com

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four or more hours with each full charge). The earbuds also have a built-in mic so they can chat on the phone. Psst — these are also a great option for going outside in a mask, since they don't have wires that'll get tangled in the mask straps.

Promising review: "Color me impressed! I first fell in love with wireless earbuds with Taotronics. However I wanted to use them to sleep with and they do not fit comfortably laying on them. They also shorted out in the shower which scared me since they are supposed to be waterproof. Enter Tozo T10. I took a chance since the profile seemed smaller and it paid off! First thing i did was try them in the shower: no problem at all! Washed my hair and everything LOL. I'm a side sleeper and am able to fall asleep comfortably listening to my audio books. Big thing for people is sound quality — I must say these SURPASSED my expectations! I can't even listen past half volume, deep bass, clear sounds, and no crackles, super impressed! The magnets in the charger are very strong, no issues of them falling out and the case is sturdier and battery life longer than my Taotronics set. I haven't used those since I got these! Only weird thing I noticed is if you put your hand up close to the nonmaster side the volume fades on that side, it's quirky but not annoying, LOL. I fully endorse these you will love love love them!"ca1234

44. A pair of cut-resistant gloves for anyone whose hands aren't quite as steady as their new passion for cooking at home — these are designed to be four times stronger (!!) than leather to keep their digits safe.

Promising review: "I bought the gloves because I had two nasty cuts in quick succession from a cheese grater. Anyone who has had injuries to their fingers knows how difficult it is to continue to do everyday activities and meal preparation while still protecting your wound. I received the gloves quickly after my order and pressed them into use immediately that evening. I am most impressed. My fingers/hands were protected from my very sharp grater and knife while I prepared dinner. I bought two pairs, one to keep and one to give as a gift. I am now going to buy a third pair in a larger size for a friend who also likes to cook but suffers from occasional run-ins with mandolines, graters, and knives. Great product!" —O'Hare

45. A popular microwave pasta cooker that also cooks rice and steams veggies, literally with just water and in the microwave. If they're feeling uninspired eating at home for the bajillionth night in a row, this gizmo has got their back.

Promising review: "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man...I really love this gizmo! I try to limit my monthly food expenditures and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week. If not more. First of all, I like spaghetti — either with normal Prego-type sauce or sometimes just with butter and Romano cheese sprinkled on. But I'm lazy and impatient and don't like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big cleanup afterwards. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly measured spaghetti; it's faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time; and the cleanup is a snap. No big pot; no colander; no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta. Just the easy to clean Fasta Pasta, and a pot to heat up the sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" —Smilin Sam

They are excellent quality, with the three must-have features: 1) a handle on the cup so you don't need potholders, 2) a knob on the top for easy lift off, and 3) no internal rim on the cup so you can remove the egg(s) easily.
