    47 Products Reviewers Loved So Much They're Buying Them Again As Gifts

    "One for me, and one for you" — you buying these game-changing memory foam slippers for everyone you've ever loved.

    1. A Java Sok, aka a reusable iced coffee cup insulator you can use to keep your drink cold *and* your fingers from freezing off, meaning this will come in handy every season.,

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough positive things about the Java Sok. As a regular iced coffee drinker (Starbucks on the daily), this thing is truly awesome! I use it in the car, office, home...everywhere! I will be purchasing the other sizes and will get a few as gifts for my office peeps. Added bonus...seems to keep my drink colder longer. Buy the Java will not be disappointed!" —Lyndsey L

    2. A time-marked water bottle you can get in a bajillion different colors if you're someone who needs reminders to stay hydrated — this one's especially great because of the ease of use. It's designed to fit into car cup holders and has a lil' button by the mouthpiece to pop the cap off for easy access.,

    It's also BPA-free and comes equipped with a flip-top lid for protection from germs and debris and a silicone, leak-proof spout for easy drinking flow.

    Promising review: "I love how the water bottle is marked with how much you are drinking in a day. I loved the sippy straw, no mess, no leaking, very high quality, and something I’m gifting this Christmas because of how much I love!" —Rebecca

    3. A sparkling-wine saver to keep their bubblies bubbling, so they can pop a bottle any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers.

    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: "What’s not to like?! I’m a Champers/bubbles person and I need to be able to cork my bubbles so can have a glass or two everyday! This works amazingly well and it’s sooooooooo easy! Bought one and then three more as gifts!!! Excellent price point and it also saves your bubbles so you get to finish a bottle in a couple days!! No wasted bubbles!!!" —Brontski

    4. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have over 135,000 five-star reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can multi-task to your heart's content, whether it's listening to spooky podcasts while you clean, chatting with your BFF on a walk around the neighborhood, or doing an at-home workout without waking up all your roomies.

    These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 4+ hours with each full charge). The earbuds are also sweatproof and waterproof so you can use them during workouts or runs, and 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 it doesn't have wires that'll get tangled in the mask straps.

    Promising review: "So far I love everything about these earphones. I have had multiple kinds of wireless headphones and am always getting the wires hung on everything. These are so comfortable, they stay in my ears well. The sound quality is fantastic. I haven’t tried them in the shower yet, but will do that soon. I will be ordering more to give for gifts. They are wonderful!! They pair easily to my phone and IPad. Noise cancellation is great. They are comfortable to wear also. I have small ears, so the small bud that comes with works very well for me. My 27-year-old son LOVES to sing in the shower so I am going to buy him a pair of these for Christmas. He will love them as much as I do." —Karen Haney

    Get it from Amazon $25.49 (available in five colors).

    5. A pair of game-changing memory foam slippers for indoor *and* outdoor use, so you can enjoy these lightweight, plush-lined clouds that mold to your feet anywhere you roam.

    Reviewer in slip on white and black marled slippers with fleece-y lining

    Promising review: "Wonderful slippers. So soft and cozy. Pretty much the only thing I've worn since January. They're very well made, but I feel like I'll wear a hole in them pretty soon because I wear them so much. Will definitely purchase again for myself and as a gift for literally everyone I know." —David and Melena

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in women's sizes 5-12 and five colors).

    6. A K-Cup carousel for your kitchen that rotates 360 degrees and holds up to 35 K-Cups, and will also be a big ole "yeah, I have my life together" flex.

    A black carousel holder that's five K-cups high on a counter

    Promising review: "This works wonderfully. Bought this as a gift. I already bought one for myself. Great price." —Brenda J Romanski

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    7. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey to instantly elevate all your favorite dishes to "my compliments to the CHEF" level. This can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to anything from pizza to salads to tacos to — be still my '90s bb heart — grilled cheese.

    A bottle of the honey drizzled on pizza

    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 Romeus

    8. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover to prevent wine-related allergies and migraines, so you can enjoy that wine advent calendar without powering through a migraine the whole next day.

    Reviewer image of glass of red wine with a bottle of Drop It, along with a caption explaining that it's been working

    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. Plus, this is a heck of a lot easier to use if you want to drink out at a restaurant without pulling out a "wine wand" and calling attention to yourself. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 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: "Is this magic? I’ve always gotten headaches from wine that turn into migraines. Not anymore! I’m not sure how this works but it seems to effectively neutralize the sulfates and tannins in the wine that cause headaches. It’s discrete and the bottle seems like it will last me awhile. I’m going to gift one to my Mom who has the same issue." —Becky duPuis Bartek

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

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

    Promising review: "I've tried many sleep masks but this is the only one I like. The foam around the eye sockets is soft and covered with soft material that forms a seal around my eye sockets. This makes it very comfortable and shields out any light, even if I want to take a nap during the day! I have been able to regulate my sleep better because I put it on when I want to sleep and I am not awakened by light until I want to be. I usually stay up until at least midnight and wake up the minute the sun comes out but I've been able to sleep many hours more that usual. This is THE ONLY mask I give as a gift and the recipients tell me they have gotten the same response — longer sleep in the morning. Excellent buy!" —Fanceyfootwork

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three colors).

    10. A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone that you'll finally stop losing sleep over your love-hate relationship with your chair.

    A reviewer's swivel office chair with a memory foam cushion resting on it

    Promising review: "After having major surgery last year, I noticed minor but annoying hip and lower back pain. As soon as the cushion was delivered, I tried it out and ahhh, the back adjusted (popped a little), hip felt no pressure and more aligned and dull lingering headache went away. Wow! Why didn't I seek out a product like this earlier? But this cushion needs 10 stars because the quality is there, no doubt. I WILL be buying more of these for other sitting areas and gifts for friends and family!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.70+ (available in two colors).

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

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Amazon

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

    Promising review: "The chopsticks are very durable, and the glow is bright. They're a bit bigger that I expected — but very pleased nonetheless with the product because it serves the purpose and is entertaining for kids, right up to adult Star Wars nerds. It also made the perfect gift for my fellow Star Wars nerds. I've been too busy playing with them rather than using them to eat food — but hopefully that will eventually happen before the batteries need changing." —Anthony

    12. A wireless, Bluetooth-enabled karaoke mic you can sync with preeeeetty much anything, including speakers, players, or singing apps on their phone. Now youcan live out your Ariana Grande fan fictions in the comfort of your own home.

    Reviewer holding light pink colored karaoke mic with volume and sound controls

    Promising review: "I only wish that I would have bought this sooner. I’ve karaokied alone and with others everyday since it came. One day it was all that I did all day. I ate meals but not a chore or responsibility.... just hard core karaoke. I found it best to pull up YouTube scrolling lyrics on the tv and then use the microphone to project my voice but you can have both come through true microphone easily. I can’t wait to use it in the car on a girls trip. I just bought a second one for duets and have plans to send a couple as gifts. Great purchase!!" —Susie Q

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in 11 colors).

    13. A five-year One Line A Day journal perfect for anyone who keeps starting journals and then abandoning them — one line a day is *super* low commitment, so it'll likely stick (and imagine the satisfaction of looking back every year!).

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    The book comes with 365 pages, each of which has lines for five days, so they'll write on the same page each year when the date comes around again. It's a really cool way to reflect on their ~journey~ — kind of like those "this time last year!" things your phone or Facebook does, except they're the ones in control of what gets written and saved.

    Promising review: "This is a FANTASTIC journal centered on a FANTASTIC concept! I'm a hardcore journaler, keeping a detailed daily diary for many years now. And this journal fits right in. If I don't get to my primary journal for a day or two, this book reminds me of what I did on what day, etc. It's just a great little log. It's also great fun! I just finished my first volume of this book, and it was SO FUN to see what happened on each day from the previous years. Of course, it takes a few years for that aspect of fun to come into play, but if you're diligent and thorough, that payoff will eventually come to fruition. The journal has held up beautifully to the wear and tear of handling it for five years, overall. The gold lettering on the cover is long gone, but its imprint remains. So, cosmetically, it's dirty and worn and fading. But structurally, it's sound. And I looooove the worn look anyway; it means it's seen some days. I've started volume two now, and am so excited to keep going with these books, hopefully all my life. At this point, I have three more blank ones in storage; I hope they make these for many more years to come so I can keep going with them, and keep gifting them." —Sarah L Carnes

    14. A trio lasagna pan designed so all of your edges are so perfectly crisped it will taste like Remy from Ratatouille cut them with his own discerning, bougie eyes.

    FYI, you can 6,000% use these for brownies, blondies, and bread too. This is also great for making several kinds of lasagna at once, if you and other fam members have different preferences!

    Promising review: "I ordered this pan and made lasagna three ways, traditional, vegetarian, vegan for a dinner party, the pan is very deep and each space is approximately the size of of lasagna noodle. The party was a big success and pleased everyone. The day after the party I gifted each couple a pan. We are having a complete dinner based on this pan. 1) appetizers (3 dips in one pan). 2) side dishes or bread in 3) main dish Mexican, italian & greek and the finally, brownies 3 ways in the last pan. I have not run into a single person who is not surprised by is versatility. I'm ordering multiple pans for Christmas gift." —LESLIE M WEISBRICH

    15. 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.

    Two stuffed toys modeled after Natural Lime and Cherry White Claws

    Promising review: "These were just too funny. Purchased for my dog who loved them and have since been giving them as gifts to friends who love them as well. Very fun spin on a dog toy." —Jody

    16. A super-soft Makeup Eraser to wipe makeup right off your face with nothing but water and a gentle scrub — I've been using one for two months now and it has *drastically* cut down my makeup-removing routine., Amazon

    It's got two sides — one that can wipe off all your makeup with water and a light scrubbing, and another that exfoliates your skin. Plus, all you have to do when you're done using it is wet it and hang it up to dry! No more wasting money on icky washcloths that hurt your skin!!! I can hear your pores singing from here.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for a friend after another friend gave me one a couple of years ago. I have used mine every night for several years and it’s still amazing. I just use one area each night to take off my eye makeup and then use the reverse side to wipe off my face before applying lotion for the evening. I love that I’m not using chemicals on my face and it’s super environmentally friendly because I just wash it weekly with my towels and it’s like new again. Everyone should have one of these. Now, I give them as gifts." —katieheff

    17. A seat gap filler so nobody will never again have to sacrifice a beloved french fry and/or phone to the abyss between the seat and the console.

    These Drop Stop seat gap fillers were originally featured on Shark Tank!

    Promising review: "Decided to try these while I was still a bit skeptical that they'd work. I found they fit well in the space. I had to squish them in the space and then they expand back to fill the gap. We've dropped a couple things that would have most likely gone into that space and it was nice to see it do its job. Worth the money and decided I'm going to give this product as gifts this year. Figure most people won't already own it but would love to have it if they got a chance to try a set." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This is a perfect companion for my new planner 2020. It’s ideal for me to organize my planner with multi color entries on my planner. 18 color pens are crafted with a style. They are very sturdy and easy to hold on hand. The fine tips give stylish writing. I love to send them as gifts for my kids." —David

    Promising review: "Best purchase ever! Great bag. Not bulky or heavy, super soft. Just the right size handle. Convenient inside pocket for easy access to your phone and ChapStick. Bought the black and hunter green. Buying the orange to give as a gift. You won’t be disappointed. Even came with a cute colorful mini scarf. Could have put it on the bag but instead a wear it as a headband." —marthafruit

    20. A mug warmer to keep coffee piping hot long after it's brewed, so you can stop drinking it cold every time the morning slips into the time-space-caffeine continuum.

    Promising review: "I love this product! Every day I love to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and multiple cups of tea but I’m a slow drinker and within minutes my tea goes cold. I have one right by my bed and in the office. I only drink cold tea when I want to now 😃! I ended up buying almost 10 more for gifts over the holidays especially for all my friends and family who have to work at home during these times." —Sharise

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    21. A pair of very popular, absurdly cozy joggers so you have a nice pair to throw on for WFH or quick walks around the block this winter, whether you want them in a standard black or one of a bunch of fun prints 🌸.

    Promising review: "I have to say that these pants are amazing. They are good for a jog, going out to the grocery store, or simply just lounging at home. They are the softest and I washed them a few times and they have held up well so far. Don't hesitate to get these as they are great for the price. So far I purchased two in different colors and also bought one for someone as a gift." —Melanie Sicat

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in women's sizes S-3X and 35 colors and prints).

    22. A gorgeous pastel paint-by-number, because it's the kind of gift that keeps on giving: not only is it a great activity, but the end result is a watercolor so beautiful it deserves a frame.

    Each set comes with a detailed numbered outline, three brushes, and a set of numbered acrylic paints with extra to spare.

    Promising review: "I bought this for myself and three others as gifts for friends. The kit contains not only the canvas layout but also a paper copy of the layout. I have taken the paper copy and enlarged sections. Then, I colored the portion I planned to paint next. This helps me paint all of one color at one time. It is relaxing to spend time painting, and I think the finished product will be something I can be proud to hang in my home." —Linda

    23. A dainty beaded face mask chain to keep your mask on your person while you'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: "I stumbled upon this mask chain, I think through a BuzzFeed list of items you didn’t realize you needed or something along those lines. My work is considered an essential service so I have been working nonstop since the start of the pandemic and wear a mask all day, everyday. I love this concept so much because there are instances when taking off my mask to eat/drink and I feel weird just setting it down on my desk. The mask chain keeps it handy and accessible at all times. I have gotten so many compliments on it and I love the bright, fun colors. I will be ordering more to give as gifts! Definitely recommend!" —Natalie Anderson

    Get it from Firefly Feeling Bright on Etsy for $5.95 (originally $7).

    24. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice: A Book-To-Table Classic, a hybrid book and cookbook that incorporates Martha Stewart's recipes based on the text within the actual story. The Austenite in your life is gonna lose their marbles (and hopefully cook for you).

    My mom got me one of these for my birthday, and I'm a lazy monster so I haven't cooked out of it, but my STARS is it gorgeous. I leave it on my coffee table, but unlike other coffee table books, I actually read out of this one. The pictures are so beautiful and soothing. 11/10 would choose to live inside of it if I could.

    Promising review: "I’ve just received it and I love it, it’s all girly with recipes and love the hard cover (a bit big for my liking but I still love it). I bought two, one for me and one as a gift to my best friend. I read Pride and Prejudice many times (in French) and watched almost all the adapted movies and series but still wanted to read the original version in English and I was very delighted to receive this colorful book." —SM

    25. An electric wine opener to save soooo much time and effort — this rechargeable bb will safely pop it open in six seconds without any of the hassle.

    The tube-shaped metal wine opener next to a bottle of wine it just uncorked

    Promising review: "I just got it yesterday and was excited to try it out. First it looks so cool with its blue light. The foil cutter is awesome, took a second and cut the foil perfectly. Next I simply centered the corkscrew in the middle of the cork, pressed the down button and voila the cork came out, push the up button and cork is removed from the bottle opener. Why didn't I get this before? A few months later, still works great and I bought about four more as gifts. All recipients love it!!" —D.S.

    26. A PhoneSoap that'll make anyone feel like they're truly living in the ~future~. All you have to do is put a small object in it — whether it's a phone, keys, eyeglasses, and even a face mask — and this compact gadget kills up to 99.99% of bacteria on it with UV light.

    Promising review: "This has proven to be a great purchase. I have also purchased two others as gifts. It matches my bedroom and sits on my vanity. Looks great with the decor. More than that it is very convenient to clean my makeup brushes, nail files, etc. If it fits you can use it in this phone soap. It was a great purchase and I am seriously considering the larger version. I've had this almost two years with zero issues." —Island Sandy

    27. An Instagram-famous bottle of Truff hot sauce, which is basically what happens when truffles and gourmet hot sauce have a ridiculously decadent baby.

    The sauce drizzled on popcorn

    There's also a white truffle version as well as a hotter version of the classic black truffle hot sauce.

    Promising review: "Once you go TRUFF, you’ll never go back. This is THE BEST HOT SAUCE if you’re a fan of truffle oil and hot sauce. It’s like combining your two most favorite things into the most perfect combination. Excellent on many things, but especially on pizza. I brought this to a pizza party and the hosts tried stealing my bottle by the end of the night! I took it back, but I gifted them a new bottle the next can’t deny food love!" —CH

    28. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a DRILL (!!) that basically does all of the hard grime-busting for you, so you don't have to have sore arms for a week just because you dared to wipe down the shower.

    one of the brushes attached to a drill next to a shower pane with half still fogged up and the other super clear

    Promising review: "I got this for Christmas. Honestly I didn't think it would work. It sat around for 6-7 months before I tried it. Wow! My tiled shower had mold, mildew, iron, rust, hard water stains, dirt and every other nasty stain that can be had in a shower. With a little Comet and very little effort it took it all off. I have tried every cleaner, scrubbie that I could find to clean this shower. Nothing worked. Not even straight bleach. This scrubber worked. I am in shock that it worked. After a good workout I noticed that the some of the brushes were bent. The product is still worth the money even if I have to replace it. Overall this is a great product. I am going to be giving them as Christmas gifts this year." —FreddiesCat

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    29. A rapid egg cooker that I am warning you right now is going to become your only personality trait. It can make soft, medium, *and* hard-boiled eggs in addition to poaching, scrambling, and making omelets out of them. This gizmo is like a thousand potential brunches in one.


    I've owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years, and you better BELIEVE I gifted one to my parents apropos of nothing (truly no holiday, no birthday, they got the package and were like "??" and I was like, "Eggs.") I've especially gotten use out of it during the pandemic because it simplifies breakfast — 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: "So this is the third rapid egg cooker I've purchased. I give them as gifts and would straight up break somebody's knee caps if they tried to steal mine. My family of four's hard-boiled egg consumption is concerningly high since buying this but until a cholesterol test on my 5-year-old puts an end to our fun we are riding this dream as far as it takes us. Also be warned if you buy these of these Amazon starts suggesting you buy every egg product ever created but honestly it is worth it." —Anna from MN

    30. A tiny milk frother so you can start concocting your own cozy café drinks so delicious that you might just start a new TikTok trend.


    It's also teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water, and works on cold *and* hot beverages.

    Promising review: "When you look up milk frothers on Amazon about 100 pull up. They look similar, so how do you know which one to go with?? I watched review after review, and after all of my homework, I decided to go with this one. I’m so glad I did! This thing does the job and well! VERY easy to clean (that’s what I care about). The people who run the company added a kind HAND-WRITTEN note acknowledging the hard times that they know people are going through these days with this pandemic and expressed gratitude for the purchase. I mean WOW. Taking the time to reach out to your purchasers?! Not all small businesses are the same and I’m glad that I went with this one. I will be ordering additional products as Christmas gifts!" —KBSB

    31. A wine caddy for the bath tub that will basically make anyone feel like they're living inside an episode of Scandal, sans all the messy political drama and the effort of having to choose impeccable outfits every day.

    A transparent holder suctioned to the side of the tub with a stemmed wine glass in it

    Bonus: it also holds cans, so they can pop in a LaCroix or enjoy a shower PBR, too.

    Promising review: "Loved how easy this was to put in my shower and use for anything from holding beverages to face wash. Gifted it to two friends and my boyfriend who at first mocked it but now LOVES it. I’d consider traveling with it at this point." —MB Schatz

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in five colors).

    32. A flexible universal tablet stand so you don't have to crane your neck or tire out your arms just to marathon reruns of Parks and Rec in peace.


    Promising review: "Just started using this and it appears to work better than other stands I've used. I have used it in bed, on the sofa, and in the kitchen while cooking. The three angles are perfect and the height keeps cooking splatters from reaching surfaces. One must remember that when moving from one spot or location to another to readjust the legs as the stand has a tendency to fold up when moved. I love the feature allowing me to use my electronic device while in bed. Time will tell how well the elastic clasp will keep things secured in this position. Absolutely love this stand so far. Gifted my neighbor with one and he seems as pleased as I am." —Sharon

    33. A snap-on pasta strainer to free your pasta from its hot juices straight from the pot, and spare you storage space to boot (is it just me or are colanders always in the business of being exactly in the way of whatever it is you need?). Psst — these are also a game-changer for washing your fruit, too!

    A model straining pasta from a green strainer clipped to the sides of the pot

    Promising review: "This is the best kitchen gadget I've purchased in a long time! I've tried it on several sized pots and pans and it's worked great each time. The first time i used it, I did tip the pan too fast and lost a couple of ravioli, so start draining your water slowly then when its almost out, tilt your pan more to get the remaining water out to avoid the issue of having food spill out with the water. It's so much easier than a traditional colander!! Even my skeptical husband loves it now. I've used it with Pasta, rice and even to drain grease out of meat — works great each time! We use it so much that we recently bought more as gifts for family and friends because it's become our go-to item. I use it nearly everyday and it's holding up great." —gagirl

    34. A ridiculously cute lavender-scented microwaveable stuffed animal that doubles as a heating pad, giving you something extra cute (and useful!!) to snuggle with in the winter.,

    These "Warmies" are each filled with all-natural grain and dried lavender, so you can microwave them to use them as heating pads or pop in a sealed bag in the freezer for two to three hours to use them as a cold pack.

    Promising review: "Adorable product. Heats up quick in 90 seconds and smells strongly of lavender. Larger than anticipated which is great and the weight of the toy is relaxing. Purchased a second as a gift." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $21.75+ (available in 17 animals).

    35. A toilet night-light so you can navigate to the bathroom without stubbing your toe on 86 things or turning on the overhead light and confusing your 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: "I love this and so do my sons. I had to buy another one for a gift because they loved mine so much. It works perfectly. The sensor is very sensitive. It turns on when you walk past the bathroom. The light is bright enough that you don't have to turn on the light every time you go in the bathroom. I catch myself reaching for the light switch out of habit and smile because I don't have to flip the switch and waste electric." —Rose Lamb

    36. A cloud-shaped magnetic key holder for an absurdly cute storage option for keys. I dare anyone to forget something dangling from this lil' cloud.

    Promising review: "This is the cutest way to hold keys ever! And it was mad easy to install: peel and stick. I don’t know how I ever survived just using a hook instead of this cute magnet cloud. Excellent housewarming gift too. I now take it with wine as a gift for any friends/family moving." —Clemmie C.

    37. A pour-over coffee maker so you can experience slow-made, piping hot coffee the way it was meant to be experienced.

    A pour-over coffee maker with coffee in it

    Promising review: "Obsessed. I moved to a new apartment with a tiny kitchen that had no room for a 'traditional; coffeemaker. My friend suggested a pour-over coffeemaker, and it's changed my life! I'd never used a pour-over coffeemaker, but after reading the instructions and a few articles online I feel like a pro! It's so easy to use and the coffee tastes great every single time! It keeps the coffee warm and makes enough for two. I also bought one as a gift for my friend and she loves it as much as I do, if not more!" —Francesca

I love that the grass is organic and grew in my home and was not tampered with like the ones at the store!!! Will be repurchasing to gift to my other cat mom friends and to grow another batch in a different, decorative pot." —Kaycha Baez

    39. A set of 50,000 (!!) highly popular, 100% biodegradable water beads for anyone who loves a ~spa vibe~. These are basically microscopic when they arrive, but expand into small, bouncy jelly-like balls when exposed to water.

    People also use these for fun games with kids, making stress balls, and home decorating — the world is their water bead oyster!!

    Promising review: "EXCELLENT value and they work perfectly! The kids are having so much fun with them and even added them to SLIME! Highly recommend, will be ordering these as gifts too. A little goes a long way, they arrive in a small container but make a huge amount!" —Jason

    41. A rotating, heated back and neck massager perfect for unwinding at the end of the day, whether it's from tension from working at a desk or sore muscles from going hard after a workout. (Or, you know, from existing. It's rough sauce sometimes.)

    A reviewer holding the massager, which has three rotating heated balls under the fabric on both sides

    Promising review: "It's so good I had to order again to gift to my mom! Really hits the spot. After a long day in the salon, my neck and back ache this is my joy to relax after work and turn on the massager first I'll place it in my neck once that feels good enough I move it down my back. So relaxing and works well." —BECKY SIDER

    42. An avocado slicer, because yes, avocado is delicious, but fancily cut avocado you can put on Instagram and humble brag about your brunch making skills? Out of this world.

    This three-in-one tool can split an avocado with its pointy tip, remove the pit with its center, and make perfectly even slices with the bottom — a much safer alternative to using a regular knife and potential falling prey to the dreaded "avocado hand."

    Promising review: "Cutting an avocado is easy enough to do with a knife so I didn’t get what all the hype was about with this tool...... But 'sheltering in place' had me binge-shopping (don’t judge).... Since Amazon has a great return policy I thought I would give it a try. Soooo glad I purchased this! It is an incredible little tool. I should have purchased this years ago. I can slice up an avocado for a salad in under a minute, get perfect size slices and use the ENTIRE avocado. I love it so much I bought more to give as hostess gifts!" —Kathleen Brougham

    43. A ponytail holder cuff so you won't have to deal with the weird indentation your signature "emergency hair tie" leaves behind.

    Promising review: "I wear this all the time, it is perfect because it can hold thick wristbands and now my wrist has proper circulation! Plus I can wear it with nice dresses and it looks like an accessory, not a wristband holder. Love it so much I bought one for myself and gave them as gifts to my bridesmaids." —M. Manahan

    Get it from Amazon for $13.66 (available in three colors and in two-packs).

    44. A foaming bubble bath with Epsom salts to help relieve aching muscles and chamomile essential oils to help relax all the "AGJKAFGJAKGJ" in your brain.

    Promising review: "Love this product. The Rosemary and Mint is my favorite; it has a nice scent and makes for a lovely, relaxing soak in the tub. Use this a lot when our family has a head cold; the vapors seem to help de-congestion. Purchased several for gifts to family this year." —psychebelow

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four scents).

    45. A *super* compact eight-in-one spiralizer that also grates cheese, juices fruits, and cuts ribbons, and more. All you have to do is change out one of the interlocking caps for a new function. Fresh squeezed OJ? Zoodles in the air fryer? Grated parmesan on your pasta? Done, done, and done. (And you never have to say "when"!!)

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I recently purchased this because it was my cheapest option for making zoodles, and also because my apartment is the size of a shoebox and there was no room for anything bigger. I LOVE how easy it is to swap out the caps to do other things, too — I've started grating my own cheeses and feel very fancy. But mostly I just love that it's very safe to use (it comes with a finger guard!), super easy to figure out, very compact, and even has measurements on the inside of the cup if you're ever portioning things out for a recipe.

    Promising review: "This is the second spiralizer that I have purchased, and by far the best I have used. It's super easy to use and to clean. My other spiralizer that I had was difficult to clean properly and I want to use they as often as possible so the use and cleaning of the product is very important! Fullstar Vegetable Spiralizer is a great product and I will be purchasing more to give as gifts for the holiday season. I would definitely recommend. A+++ item." —Yvonne I

    46. A sushi-making kit perfect for beginners or intermediate sushi makers, so you can finally mix and match the exact ingredients your adventurous heart desires.,

    I'm definitely going to sushi jail for this, but I've started putting peanut butter in my avocado rolls. Don't knock it until you try it. Anyway, each kit comes with two sushi rolling mats, five pairs of chopsticks, a paddle, a spreader, and a PDF of instructions, including recipes for six popular rolls.

    Promising review: "Received this the other day and the wife and I had our own sushi night at home...I did not realize there were two mats in the package which was a nice little surprise...everything is made of good quality materials, easy to use and a good fun activity for date night at home. I will be getting a few more as gifts for a few friends...good product, received it quickly and for the price you cannot go wrong." —Timothy J Stegner

    Promising review: "I got these originally as a supplemental silverware set. My friends all compliment them all the time because of how nice they are! I am so happy with this purchase. Will be buying another set for my friend as birthday gift. because I think it would be a great and unique birthday gift for her and her boyfriend." —Ashley Ferris
