    1. A rotating, heated back and neck massager for the person in your life who just needs to ~unwind~ a little, whether it's from tension from working at a desk or sore muscles from going hard on hikes.

    5. A "White Paw" dog toy you're legally obligated to gift to anyone who has uttered the words "No Laws When You're Drinking Claws" regardless of whether or not they have a dog.

    7. A "Hunt A Killer" subscription box to put all those years they spent marathoning Law & Order to the test — every month they'll get sent new updates to a (fictional!!) murder case complete with evidence to decode and piece together, so they can use their sleuthing skills and wit to catch the killer.

    8. A customizable Animal Crossing tote bag you can get in a ton of different colors with their island's name on it *and* their three favorite villagers (just be sure to say which ones you want at checkout, and by "which ones," I obviously mean Judy).

    A black tote bag that says "welcome to (your island name)"

    9. A personalized bar ware crate so they can basically have their own at-home brewery, complete with custom pint glasses and bottle opener. The most fun bit, though, is that they genuinely have to pry open the sealed wooden crate with a crow bar — a big gifting mood if there ever were one.

    16. ... Or a perfect, precious, flawless, incomparable Baby Yoda plushie made with a soft bean bag body they can cuddle with all day (and pose all over their apartment, and talk to like it's their son, and project all their hopes and dreams on, but I digress).

    17. A time-marked water bottle you can get in a ton of different colors for anyone who lives in a constant state of "oops, forgot to drink water today."

    25. A chic vegan cork "leather" slim cardholder that your chic but eco-conscious friend can easily slide into a pocket (that is, when they're not showing it off in an Instagram story).

    Small cardholders in dark teal, sand, maroon, and burnt orange colors

    31. A Hamilton-themed shot glass emblazoned with "I Am Not Throwing Away My Shot," because yes, they're young, scrappy, and hungry, but sometimes they're thirsty, too!

    32. A "Nike By You" custom shoe — you can either design the perfect shoe for them yourself, or give them a gift card so they can choose the elements of it all on their own. (Also a handy pro-tip if you're looking for a last-minute gift!)

    33. A set of SpongeBob and Patrick HipDot face masks so your nostalgia-loving friend can recreate Saturday morning cartoons ... all over their face. (No, seriously — the masks look *just* like the character's faces.)
