51 Gifts That Will Make Their Lives A Little Easier

You're one waterproof pair of $30 AirPod dupes away from being their absolute favorite person this year.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have nearly 220,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds so they can multitask to their heart's content without ever getting tangled in their headphone wires. These are also a great option for people working out at home who want to listen to bops without blasting Rihanna through the whole house.

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge). The earbuds also have a built-in mic so you 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: "The earbuds worked seamlessly and well out of the box. I use them while hiking the hills with my dogs and when working at my desk — I can still hear outside noises when needed for safety, but can listen to music without disturbing others. The earbuds are comfortable even during exercise, and they fit securely. Using the earbuds as a headset with my cellphone is easy as well. I do have to experiment with how they handle the Google Assistant. The audio quality is at least stereo hi-fi, and the earbuds paired easily with both my phone and laptop. Wireless charging and having a large backup power source for the phone are terrific features." —Jawpar

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 $29.99+ (available in five colors).

2. A chic rose-gold rechargeable electric lighter your candle-loving friend can use to replace all their old gas ones. This one is not only pretty, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so they can use it to light gas burners and larger candles.

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. You can read my full review of the Leejie electric lighter for more deets!

Promising review: "Works like a charm. I saw this on a TikTok. Knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month." —dwhite3012

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 $9.99 (available in five colors).

3. A set of durable, TikTok-beloved matte hair clips designed for all hair types that are so comfy a lot of reviewers say they're a go-to for all-day wear. Sorry @ headbands, the clips are taking this one!

Promising review: "I will admit I bought these from seeing them on TikTok and I needed new clips for my thick hair. I am not disappointed and beyond glad I got them. The colors are gorgeous and they stay put without hurting my head. I'm very impressed." —Amazon Customer

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 a set of four from Amazon for $12.99.

4. A Geekey multitool, which looks impressive at first glance, but functions as *deep breath* a coring tip, serrated edge, can opener, wire stripper, smoking pipe, file, imperial and metric ruler, protractor, bottle opener, multi-head-fit driver, lanyard hole, bike spoke key, screwdriver tip, wrench, *and* bit driver all at once. In short...it is a whole lot.

Amazon

Promising review: "So many tools on it for being so small. If your motorcycle rider it can adjust pretty much everything. I'm in the construction field and Anyone that has worked with me since I have got it has offered me way more than what I paid for it. For example work-wise: every downspout on gutters uses a 1/4-inch screw, so if you don't have that attachment while you're on the ladder you gotta go all the way back down; instead I just grab my keychain and use the tool." —Kimberly J. Hanson

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 $22.99.

5. A waterproof Bluetooth shower speaker with a hook that attaches right to their curtains or a suction cup to stick on their tiles, so they can listen to their favorite news podcasts or get their groove on first thing in the morning.

amazon.com, Amazon

Psst — you can also taking this hiking or camping in the rain and strap it right to your backpack or use it by the pool!

Promising review: "I bought this portable Insmy Bluetooth speaker because I needed one that I could use in my shower plus when it rains I could use it outside and not worry if it got wet because of its waterproof rubber covering. I also like that you can plug a SD card into it and listen to MP3s that you have on your smartphone or got off your computer. The sound is the best part of this speaker, it produces a nice rich HD sound and is not tinny like other portable speakers. It comes with a charging cable and it can be hung or be carried with the adjustable lanyard that's attached to it. Pairing via Bluetooth is very easy to do to your smartphone, computer, etc. All in all I am very pleased with this Insmy Bluetooth shower speaker and the sound it produces." —John S.

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 $18.99+ (available in six colors).

6. A weekly pill organizer designed with push-through silicone lids so they can easily organize their pills at the beginning of the week without worrying about knocking it over while the lids are all open. Each pod also has a magnetized base, so they can easily remove it and replace it if they're on the move.

The Grommet

Sagely is a family-owned small business founded by husband-and-wife team Ellie Glazer and Ivor Miskulin, who spent three years designing the ideal, stress-free pill storage solution. The silicone lids are super secure, but also designed for gentle and easy opening and closing to account for users with dexterity issues.

Promising review: "I take nine prescriptions every day between my morning and nights. Add supplements to that and it equals a lot of pills. Until I found these, I wasn’t able find any organizer large enough. After I got and used the first of this organizer, I immediately ordered a second. I only have to set my meds up twice a month and they stay fresh, handy, and neat. And when traveling, you can leave the rack at home and just toss the individual modules in your suitcase with no fear of them opening and dumping your meds all over your clothes. I highly recommend this system." —Bernice

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 with standard shipping from The Grommet, with expedited and express shipping options available. 

Get it from The Grommet for $34.95 or from Amazon for $34.99.

7. 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.

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

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 $10.99.

8. Plus a set of eye-popping fine-point pens designed for planners and journals that will not only delight them with their easy gliding, but also the way they never bleed through pages.

Fine point pens in 18 different colors
amazon.com

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).

Get a set of 18 from Amazon for $7.99.

9. A mug warmer to keep their coffee piping hot long after they brew it, so they can stop drinking it cold every time their morning slips into the time-space-caffeine continuum.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am currently working from home and I make tea at every hour of every day. I used to own a Mr. Coffee and had lost it during transition of moving so I HAD to get another one. I’m so glad that I did because now my tea stays warm throughout work. There is no adjustment to high and low but I prefer things simple. You just switch it on and it stays on. The plate gets pretty hot which makes my cup hot at the bottom. No issue for me because I don’t have children. I prefer warm tea over piping hot or freezing cold. This little device is my best friend and it’s great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that loves a 'just right' cup of anything." —Cecy R.

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 $10.99.

10. A dainty beaded face mask chain to keep their mask on their person while they're driving in the car between errands.

Firefly Feeling Bright/Etsy

Firefly Feeling Bright is a Florida-based Etsy shop established in 2019 that specializes in artisanal jewelry.

Promising review: "Love this beaded mask chain! Arrived quickly. I get many compliments every time I wear it. Perfect for work where I have to wear a mask while for long periods of time." —Meredith Pollack

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

Get it from Firefly Feeling Bright on Etsy for $7.

11. A bathtub caddy that will turn their bathroom into an oasis. Pinot? Poured. Candle? Lit. That travel series where Zac Efron wears a ton of beanies? Queued. Now all they have to do is calmly explain to their loved ones that they live in a tub now.

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 seven colors).

12. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet for *that* friend who can't get enough of him. 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 $7.99.

13. 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?

amazon.com, amazon.com

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. packaged 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

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 on Amazon for $18.99 (available in 13 colors).

14. A toilet night-light so they can navigate to the bathroom without stubbing their toe on 86 things or turning on the overhead light and confusing their poor brain into thinking it's daytime.

This LED toilet light has 16 colors that can work on a rotation or as a solid color.

Promising review: "This seemingly silly little gadget has turned out to be great! The light level (brightness) can be dimmed down if desired, and the color can be set to whatever you want, but the bottom line is that you don't need to turn on a bright overhead light (which wakes me up and makes me angry, not a good combination) when you need to go into the bathroom at night. Cleaning it is a breeze, too; what seems like it's going to be a problem...isn't. I can't recommend this toilet night light highly enough, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Could be on the gift list this December." —Lee R. Gurr

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 $10.99.

15. A memory foam seat cushion for their tushy so effective at relieving pressure from their tailbone you might just be tempted to buy one for yourself after hearing them sing its praises nonstop.

Promising review: "I've purchased similar items in the past that visually looked like this but were stiff and rigid. This is amazing. Totally eased my back pain from my quarantined-at-home desk job. Highly recommend." —Bellarosa555

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 $34.95 (clip the 20% off coupon on the product page for this price).

16. A slim-profile single-serve Keurig coffee machine that also does ICED coffee (and tea!) and accommodates travel mugs, so they'll save approximately *does some math* one bajillion dollars on trips to the coffee shop to get cold brew.

Keurig

Promising review: "I received this as a gift and I couldn't have gotten a better gift. To go from hot coffee — for a change — to iced tea in the afternoon is so great. I love the taste of the iced tea. I haven't been able to imitate my favorite iced tea until now! Just right. I love choosing the size to match my cup. Thanks sis!!" —Nurse ratchet

Shipping: Standard shipping, with expedited one-to-two-day shipping available at an additional cost. 

Get it from Keurig for $119.99

17. A see-through toaster, so they can watch their toast get to their *precise* level of preferred toastiness and finally have the kind of breakfast they deserve. TBH, they'll cancel their Netflix account, this is the new TV.

Amazon

Promising review: "I LOVE THIS TOASTER! It makes great toast. I can’t believe that I’ve gotten so excited over a toaster. I haven’t been able to find a durable, reasonably priced toaster that could accommodate long slices or bagels, etc. Additionally, I have had to be gluten free for the last 10 years and gluten-free bread has to be carefully toasted in order to be good. All the toasters I have ever owned had those fragile, thin wires that heat up and glow to toast the bread. And when they broke, which they inevitably did, the bread toasted unevenly. THIS TOASTER has unique coils in the bottom, so that you would expect unevenly toasted bread. BUT NO! It’s the most perfectly toasted bread I’ve had in 30 years." —Byron Trist

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 $49.99+ (available in four colors).

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.

Promising review: "My order was promptly filled and delivered and the recipient could not have been happier! He received the first bag of coffee and is really enjoying it! This made a great birthday gift and I would definitely use this company again." —Donna F.

Get a three-month gift subscription from Atlas Coffee Club for $50 (originally $60).

19. Plus a compact milk frother to make everything they drink taste like it was lovingly handcrafted by a barista *without* actually having to put pants on and drag themselves to Starbucks.

Amazon, amazon.com

Plus, it's teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water! We love a convenient appliance!!

Promising review: "I’m a barista at Starbucks so obviously I know how I like my coffee. For a while I was using an immersion blender to froth my milk for my morning cup of coffee but it just wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. I finally bought this frother and I’m so so happy with it!! It doesn’t need to be plugged in so it takes up way less space. It is a lot quieter than the blender, and I can use any cup size I want because the frother is so small. Not only can I heat up my milk for a hot coffee, but I can also use it just the same with cold milk for my iced coffee!! Highly recommend this product!!" —Heather Michael

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 $14.99 (available in 10 colors).

20. An affordable sunrise alarm clock that's a total game changer for heavy sleepers or people who sleep in pitch black rooms, which make it all too tempting to slam "snooze" in the morning. This gradually lights up the room in the minutes leading up to their alarm, so their eyes are already adjusted to the light and significantly less groggy when it's time to get themselves up and attem.

Amazon

Promising review: "I haven’t had an alarm clock in my bedroom for over four years, because I can’t stand how bright the lights are. I was hesitant to buy another alarm clock, but wanted to give the sunrise feature a try. I love it! Firstly, I’m glad I didn’t pay for the expensive version, because this is exactly what I wanted. I can completely dim the clock’s light while I sleep, so I’m not bothered by the illuminated clock at night. I then set the sunrise feature to begin 30 minutes before wake up, and set the alarm to the bird chirping/nature sounds. It has completely changed the way I sleep and wake up and begin the day. The sunrise feature slowly wakes me up, and the nature sounds for the alarm are soothing and pleasant instead of the usual jarring blare of an alarm clock. Very happy with this purchase! Would recommend." —Tara

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).

21. An 8-quart 11-in-1 Instant Pot that AIR FRIES, which means it's basically amassed so much kitchen power that all their other appliances will cower (as they should!!). This cooking MVP also pressure cooks, sautés, steams, slow cooks, sous vides, warms, roasts, bakes, broils, *and* dehydrates with minimal effort, since the settings are right there on the control panel for them.

Promising review: "This does so much and cooks so many amazing things — we have made chicken cordon bleu, tots, pizza rolls, chicken nuggets (best ever) in the air fryer. In the Instant Pot we have made some awesome mashed potatoes and vegetables, it cooks in half the time than on the stove. I am so impressed I don’t know how I ever went with out having one of these in my kitchen. It’s used daily. At first I was very intimidated by this but the more and more I use it the more comfortable I am with it." —Tmiller01

Shipping: Standard shipping, with expedited two-day shipping available at an additional cost. 

Get it from Instant for $119.95 or Amazon for  $119 (originally $199.99). 

22. 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 nightly glass of Pinot 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 that 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

Shipping: The seller lists the estimated arrival time as two to three weeks.

24. A Sport-Brella, which is an SPF 50+ maneuverable personal umbrella with a universal clamp that'll latch onto any chair they own. Boom, instant shade no matter where they've parked their human self, whether it's the porch, the beach, or the park.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Psst — a lot of reviewers swear by this for easy hands-free shade solutions for strollers and wheelchairs as well!

Promising review: "I originally bought this about three years ago and my husband used it and liked it so much recently with all the 'COVID driveway happy hours' he bought an additional one for him. It is easy to maneuver and angle to block the sun, but nonintrusive. It is easy to fold and replace in the carrying case. It is worth every penny." —Sarah B.

25. A sparkling-wine saver that will keep their bubblies bubbling, so they can pop a bottle any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers. (Psst — this gift pairs well with an actual bottle of bubbly, wink wink, nudge nudge.)

Amazon / Via amazon.com

I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it's LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don't live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

Promising review: "I purchased this stopper after seeing one being used at a local wine tasting event. I enjoy sparkling wines, but either have to drink the whole bottle myself before it gets flat (ugh) or throw it out (terribly wasteful). This product was the answer to my problem! It is very easy to use and keeps my sparkling beverage fresh and bubbly! Definitely a must!" —MKC

26. A lightweight faux-leather tote so versatile and roomy, it'll last them through every season. Plus, it's got a cheeky side pocket they can use for backup face masks if they're on the go.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "LOVE THIS TOTE!!! You know when you spend a lot of money on a purse and you get compliments, and it totally validates the $$$ you spent? Multiply those comments by 10, and that's what I got with this purse...for under $20. I get compliments from dudes, it's that cute. Soft and fuzzy on the inside, clean lines on the outside. Straps are a little narrow, but they honestly haven't been an issue. I'm at the point now I'm going to order more colors...and not feel guilty." —Army of J

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 $15.99 (available in 48 colors).

27. Plus a purse organizer insert they can easily slide into any bag, from a tote to a designer dig, for instant pockets to organize their life. Another perk? If they're switching out their purse, all they have to do is slide the organizer out and pop it in with all their stuff raring to go.

amazon.com

Bonus: This also stops the inside liner of their purse from getting dirty if anything happens to explode (been there, cleaned the Panera butter packet out of that).

Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this item!!! I love it so much I bought it again, in a different color, for another bag. It keeps your handbag clean, organized and maintains its value!!! They fit perfectly inside all of my bags, and when I want to keep the same color organizer, all I have to do is lift it up and place it in another bag. It already has everything I need and I don’t have to reorganize!!! If you like to keep your handbags clean and organized this is the BEST invention ever!!!" —Jamie R.

28. A contoured sleep mask designed to alleviate pressure from their eyes and plunge them into total delicious darkness, while staying put on their head without any Velcro snagging in their hair. A lot of 20-minute power naps are about to turn into three-hour sleep-a-paloozas, y'all.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "BUY IT. Trust me. I haven’t been on a 'sleep mask journey' for the perfect one like many others have but I read millions of reviews & when I saw the one for this mask I was sold. It is the BEST sleep mask. It’s so soft and smooth. It’s like memory foam so when you press on it it comes back up, but conforms to you and your face. Side sleepers: (that’s me) it NEVER MOVES! It stays on great. OH and there’s no Velcro sticking to your hair, YAY! It’s a simple band that can move to make it loose or tighter. The eye part doesn’t look deep, but trust me you CAN open your eyes with it on. It’s pitch black relief. It’s the best mask you’ll get, trust me." —Kendra

Promising review: "This pillow is awesome. We have a couch with no table next to it so guests had a hard time with their drinks when they wanted to put them down. This worked wonderfully. We mostly use it for drinks but you can put snacks, pen and tablet or other items in it so it's easy to grab and holds items without worry of a drink spilling or items falling off the couch. We're very happy we found this item!" —Karen Catania

Promising review: "BETTER THAN LULU'S! I saw these on TikTok and waited almost two months for them to be back in stock but they were so worth it. They’re buttery soft and the criss-cross design makes me look like an hourglass! They looked small at first but stretched just fine." —Lake

Promising review: "This little piece was sanded so well that it feels like velvet on your thumb! It's nice to be able to hold a book open without the hassle of using an extra hand. It hasn't done any damage to my pages or bothered my thumb while reading. I hesitated to buy this because it seemed like a want more than a need, but now that I have it, I see that I really needed it." —Daniela Pimentel

32. high-ponytail running cap with UPF 50 protection so you can keep the sun and sweat off of your face *and* keep your hair from getting tangled while you work out. This particular design even comes with two openings in the back for a high *or* mid pony.

Vimhue/Etsy

Vimhue is an Arizona-based, woman-owned small business that specializes in uniquely engineered running hats. 

Promising review: "Love this hat so much! I already ordered another one in a different color for myself and one for a friend! I live in Texas near the gulf and it’s summer — really humid and really hot. I walk three to four miles outside most days and I’d been wishing for a hat that allowed for a high ponytail so I could keep my hair off my neck to not get as hot/sweaty. Decided to Google it and found this and was thrilled! The X straps are easy to adjust and it fits great and is breathable. And it’s super cute!" —mlp06h

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

34. The Always Pan from Our Place, which is perfect for anyone who has big culinary ambitions, but needs a (highly functional!) nudge. This BuzzFeed-beloved nonstick pan is actually eight pieces of cookware in one, and is designed braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, serve, and store. Basically, if they can dream it, they can cook it in this bb.

Abby Kass/BuzzFeed

Here's what BuzzFeed Shopping writer Taylor Steele has to say about the Always Pan: "As someone who neither enjoys cooking nor is particularly good at it, the Always Pan has made being in the kitchen feel like less of a chore. Having one pan that can do everything means I don't have to second-guess every cooking decision I make. I can boil and prepare pasta in it. And I can roast Brussels sprouts. And I can make the perfect fried egg. And I can steam dumplings. The best part is that everything slides so seamlessly out of the pan and onto the plate, which also makes clean up super fast and easy. Both the amateur (read: reluctant) cook and the more seasoned chef will enjoy creating fan favorites and new recipes in the Always Pan!"

Also, BuzzFeeders LOVE this pan. Here's our review of the Always Pan, in which seven members of our team weigh in everything they love about it, from the nonstick coating to the versatility to the ~aesthetic~.

Shipping: Standard shipping, with expedited shipping options available at additional cost for ready-to-ship items.

35. A streak-free anti-fog spray they can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while they're wearing a mask.

amazon.com, amazon.com

A heads up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for nonantireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they're fully dry, you should be raring to go!

Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 fog gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

36. A buckleless belt so all they have to do it pop it off when they have to use the bathroom, instead of doing a whole unbuckling song and dance.

Promising review: "I will never wear a regular belt again! This eliminates the buckle bulge that I hate so much, saves the hassle of buckling and unbuckling, and doesn't get worn out the way that regular belts do from constantly being buckled and unbuckled. It's a bit like a horizontal suspender, but looks better." —K. K. Wise

One side dispenses a cleaning solution that kills bacteria, and the other side polishes the surface off so it looks nice and shiny.

Promising review: "Saw a friend at work using this; she showed me and I had to have one. I wasn't disappointed. Gets all the gunk off my phone, iPad, computer screens, and my kids' Kindles. Getting these for gifts this year. Awesome." —kevin

39. A Squatty Potty, one of those internet-famous stools they can put at the base of their toilet to prop their feet up on while they ~go~. The placement helps align their colon to make the process a whole lot easier and faster — like, 20 seconds compared to several minutes! — so they don't end up watching all of TikTok while they're waiting themselves out.

Psst — a lot of reviewers with chronic constipation and other gastrointestinal issues that get them ~backed up~ swear by this!

Promising review: "This thing provided relief INSTANTLY! I have to take pain meds for severe back problems, which means I get blocked easily...even if I am on a liquid diet. The dreaded 24-hour prep process for colonoscopies takes 48 hours and twice the prep for me and there may still be stuff left over because my body hates pooping these days. It normally takes an hour or more before I just have to give up and use a suppository or enema. I take massive amounts of chewable gummy fiber, eat enough vegetables for my entire family, and drink water as if I were an ocean creature...at least 8–10 glasses a day (usually more...much more). If I drink coffee, I have to pee but that's about it. And I pee a lot with all that water. This stool is the FIRST thing that made this process easier. It arrived in its own box. I thought...it must be special. I unwrapped its plastic and placed it in its new glorious position. Then I decided, 'What the heck, let's give it a go!' AND I DID! No struggling. No squirming. No straining. No squeezing. No grimacing. No difficulty. Just GO! THANK YOU GOD!" —NoneYa

Promising review: "I ordered this after using my sister's while waiting at an appointment. Now I wouldn't leave the house without it. It is worth the money and small enough to carry in a pocketbook or bag. It goes everywhere with me now and it has saved me. It is worth every penny. I've even been so impressed that I bought four more for Christmas gifts and an extra for me." —Natalie Marrino

Promising review: "These are amazing!!! They work! And no stains!!! I was concerned that since I don’t use Dawn or a big-name-brand dish soap, my Earth-friendly soap might not cut the grease as well, but that was not the case! My Bacon Sponge is perfectly clean and spotless! I love it! So glad I ordered two! I couldn’t be more pleased!!!" —cattealover

43. A John Frieda hot-air brush for the kind of blowout they can usually only get in a salon — the ceramic protects their hair and makes it ✨ shine ✨, and the ion helps significantly reduce frizz.

Amazon, amazon.com

Unlike other hairdryers, this one can be held closer to the roots and scalp for a higher volume and lift, and helps you curl hair at the end while it dries. It comes with three heat settings and is designed to work on all hair textures — reviewers with 2a through 4c hair mentioned it working for them, and especially noted that it helps cut down on drying time! Read our review of John Frieda hot air brush for more deets.

Promising review: "This is a total game changer for people like me with wavy hair that always gives me a disheveled appearance or the appearance that I just don't care. I do care, I just do not have the coordination or patience to figure out how to 'do' my hair. I've tried products, brushes, and different styles. This came in the mail today. I showered and washed my hair. I dried my hair for maybe 90 seconds with my hair dryer to get it about 80% dry. (I have medium/shoulder length hair.) I turned this on, and it was magical. My hair dried and finished in a matter of a few minutes. I was so taken aback by the change this made, I called everyone I knew. My 15-year-old niece said it looked like I had just left the salon! Simple old me giving myself a salon quality hairdo. The results held all day. Where has this been all my life? I love this and will be buying one for my sister and niece. Awesome!" —Michelle Fetter

Promising review: "I bought this kettle based on the recommendation of a friend, and we love it. It’s large enough to handle our family’s needs — or my tea habit...and looks nice enough to leave out all the time. Water boils quickly, it is easy to clean, and I like the fact that the kettle is glass." —S.D.C.

45. A rapid egg cooker so versatile, it can cook eggs in five different ways, all just using the steam from the water they can measure into the machine. Your "breakfast for dinner!!!" friend just met their dream appliance.

Amazon, amazon.com

I've owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years, and especially love it during quarantine — it simplifies breakfast because I know no matter what weird assortment of groceries I'm working with, there are precooked eggs to add some protein to it (I like mine medium-boiled 🍳). If my dinner is boring or seems like it needs a little extra "oomph" to it, I'll throw in an egg from this too. Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume and sing a little song instead!

Promising review: "You know those objects that are totally unnecessary, but you see them and fall in love and live forever in happiness with your random kitschy thing? This is that thing. I saw this egg cooker on a BuzzFeed list and, even though I am a fully functioning adult who has never had trouble cooking eggs before in my life, I knew I had to have it. I have not been disappointed. It makes especially lovely, perfectly round omelets with minimal cleanup required. Hard and soft boiled eggs cook evenly and taste great. The poached eggs are tender and melt in your mouth over toast." —Sonnet A. Fitzgerald

46. A white noise machine that makes a constant pfshhhhhh sound or nature sounds all night, helping mask outside noises like car traffic and their neighbor watching The Office at 3 a.m.

Amazon

This compact machine has six noise modes: White Noise, Thunder, Ocean, Rain, Summer Night, and Brook. You can either have it make the noise continuously until you shut it off, or designate it to make noise for 15, 30, or 60 minutes.

Promising review: "I can't decide which sound is my favorite — but I definitely like the option to change up the sound every few months. This makes it a lot easier to sleep (especially when I have noisy roommates who stay up late or get up early) and I like that there is a timer, so I don't have to leave it on all night. This is exactly what I wanted!!" —KC

47. An air fryer that can cook so many different dishes using the power of rapid air technology that it'll spoil them for other methods of cooking forever. Perfectly crisped french fries, veggies, and chicken wings in less than 20 minutes — no oil required.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have been thinking of getting an air fryer for a while now. The price point and the comments regarding customer service finally pushed me to purchase this fryer. Best cooking gadget I have ever purchased! I have had it for four days and have used it every day! I have made fries, fish, shrimp, potatoes, and bacon in this marvel! The flavor is amazing and I have not used any oil yet. I did purchase an accessory kit but have not used it yet — still making things as it came. I am great at burning things in the pan and in the oven. I really like how you can open the basket to check the food as it is cooking without losing the time or the temperature. I have not burned one thing! It is extremely easy to clean! It is large, but I WILL make room for it on my counter!" —CK

Promising review: "I was tired of fumbling around in my cosmetics case and saw this. I was skeptical, but...WOW! On my recent two-week trip to Europe, with constant laying out and packing up, this item was wonderful. I could find what I wanted quickly, right away. Packing up was just a matter of pulling the drawstring. At first I wasn’t sure about changing to this bag, but now I could not do without it." —Mojosharkey
