    1. A Baby Yoda Bluetooth speaker complete with a lil' strap so they can pin him onto their backpack and take him wherever they go 😭.

    Promising review: "I just wanted a small Bluetooth speaker for bedtime audio books. This is louder than I expected and my son just loves it! It is easy to keep nearby because of its small size, and I am happy with this purchase!" —ray cerda

    Price: $15.99

    2. A truly iconic tortilla blanket so they can achieve their greatest aspiration of all: becoming a human burrito.


    Promising review: "My son (7) loves tacos and I wanted to get him something to soften the quarantine blow and THIS WAS IT! He has had the blanket (so soft!) around him for the past three weeks, pretty much nonstop. Thank you to the makers for letting my son 'become a burrito!'" —VA Resident

    Price: $32.99 (available in seven styles, including waffles and pizza)

    3. A compact mini donut maker for anyone with a sweet tooth — truly, can you think of anything in this universe more delicious than a warm homemade donut?? I'll wait.


    The donuts cook within minutes, have an auto shut-off to stop them from overheating, and come with a recipe book that even includes gluten-free and Paleo-friendly options. Bonus? They 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: "Absolutely awesome. It took me about five minutes to make the dough for these amazing donuts and it took only one and a half minutes to have them hot and ready. Love it when Dash comes out with new products so my family and I can continue to make wonderful memories especially during this quarantine." —TJ Davis

    Price: $24.99

    4. A pair of incredibly soft hybrid leggings and joggers that are basically what happens if those two types of pants have a ridiculously comfy, highly functional baby.

    Reviewer in a pair of dark green joggers with an elastic drawstring high waist

    Promising review: "Best sweatpants ever. I can't explain how genuinely happy I am that these pants fit. I have trouble finding pants that fit AND are comfortable AND look good and i just found all three. These pants are very comfortable and soft but not see through even if you stretch it. The material seems thin enough to let you breathe but thick and durable enough to last one to three-plus years. (Hard to tell based on one wear, will update as time goes by.) Ordered a 3x and it fits perfectly. I also usually hate wide waistbands especially on my belly but this one is very soft and just mostly feels like extra layers of fabric, but is still pretty secure on your waist. Will definitely buy multiple pairs. :)" —Stacey

    Price: $9.99+ (available in women's sizes S-3X and dozens of colors)

    5. A HyperChiller to transform thier piping hot coffee into iced coffee in a literal minute — same goes for that rosé they forgot to stick in the fridge.


    Promising review: "I've struggled with making iced coffee at home until now — the Hyperchiller is magic. I can't believe how quickly my coffee becomes cold with zero dilution. I was also surprised on how much coffee it held, it's perfect." —Brian Kelly

    Price: $24.99

    6. A Wi-Fi-connected movie projector that easily converts any wall, both indoor and outdoor, into a personal theater. Once they sync it with a device like their phone or laptop, they can use it to project their fave Disney movies, at-home workouts, and even to play video games outside after the sun goes down.,

    Promising review: "This projector has been an amazing addition to our quarantine life at home. Who needs the movies when you have this. The volume is actually really good and the Wi-Fi is helpful. We hook up our Direct TV, Fire Stick, etc, and it all works great with great picture! We’ve been having a blast moving the movies home." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $164.72

    7. A pair of wireless sleep headphones that will play white noise or the music of their choice (read: all of Harry Styles' Fine Line) in a comfy headband, so they don't have to risk their ears getting sore while they snooze.

    A model sleeping with the headphone band around her ears

    Psst — they can also use these to keep their ears warm during walks or run in the colder months!

    Promising review: "I LOVE THESE HEADBAND HEADPHONES! Why did I not invent this myself? This is exactly what I was looking for to use for meditation while I sleep. This item is soft, lightweight and perfect for the side sleeper. The flat earphones are just what I needed to get a more relaxed good night sleep. I haven't used them until the battery ran down, but I have used them for at least 9 hours at a time. What more can I say. BUY IT! You won't be sorry!" —PB

    Price: $19.99

    8. 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.

    A blank page of the planner

    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

    Price: $10.99

    9. An always trendy teddy jacket so you can live your dream of becoming a sentient stuffed animal.

    Model in a zippered camel colored faux shearling jacket

    Promising review: "I really love this jacket. It is so soft and warm. This one does not have a lining which is good. I purchased a similar one that had a cheap lining. It wasn't as plush and soft as this coat, so it was returned. I wanted an oversized look, so I sized up. I am usually a M, but ordered the XL. I also purchased this in another color and got a L. Both sizes work for me. There isn't much difference in the L and XL, but the XL is a little roomier. I have worn this in 20 degree weather, and it still keeps me warm. Great jacket!!" —Karen

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and 16 styles)

    10. A pair of glowing light saber chopsticks to bring balance to the Force *and* to their sushi — whether they'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: "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

    Price: $10.97

    11. A Mike's Hot Honey gift basket stocked to the BRIM with a bottle of the iconic honey and snacks that pair so majestically with it that they'll never look at other condiments again.

    A red box open with contents of the set

    Each basket includes a 10-ounce bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, Busseto Spicy Salami, limited edition Mike's Hot Honey Candied Pecans, La Panzanella Gourmet Sea Salt Crackers, and a recipe booklet.

    Promising review: "So I bought this to bring to a dinner party to complement a meat and cheese board and unfortunately it never made it to the party. I had to try the candied pecans and wow are they good. I just ate them all out of the bag but they are perfect for anything. The sausage is a very generous size and amazing on the crackers with Mike's Hot Honey. Needless to say I kept this one myself and have already bought another. I think I will buy one for all my employees this holiday season — it will be a great gift!" —GBlanck

    Price: $39.99

    12. A set of 50,000 (!!) highly popular, 100% biodegradable water beads that are basically microscopic when they arrive, but expand into small, bouncy jelly-like balls when exposed to water. People love them for at-home spa treatments, for fun games with kids, for making stress balls, for home decorating — the world is their water bead oyster.

    Promising review: "Quarantine made me do it but I’m not sorry. Don’t bother buying the expensive name brand Orbeez — these are essentially the same and work great. My kids LOVE these! A million uses and great for all ages of kids (except for babies). We have filled up a huge bin and used cups to scoop and play. We have put them in the water table outside. We have used a funnel to fill up balloons and make homemade squishy stress balls. We have made foot spas. We have talked about filling a baby wading pool and lounging, but I’m not willing to buy enough. 😂TIPS — a small amount of these goes a LONG way. About half the beads in this container will fill up half of a Rubbermaid garage storage tub. Just pour them into your container with a large amount of water and wait, wait, wait. Did I mention WAIT — It will take ONE TO TWO DAYS for them to fully expand, so plan ahead!!! We’ve gotten hours of fun and I’ve also heard they’re good for gardens, so you can dispose of them there when you’re done (though you might want to do your own research on that one!)" —Deeber

    Price: $7.99

    13. A PyroPet candle that burns down to a metal exoskeleton for your ooky spookiest friend.


    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift and it is awesome! It is cute as a candle and a piece of art after it melts. It was a fun time-lapse opportunity and the quality is strong. I would recommend as a quirky gift for a quirky friend or an interesting discussion piece. It might also be fun to have an unused candle next to one that is burned so that you have a before and after display. Highly recommend and will buy another likely for myself." —Robin Dickey

    Price: $34 (available in six colors)

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

    A rose gold lighter with an electric current
    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

    Price: $12.99 (available in five colors)

    15. A dual-sided device cleaner with two sides — one with an antimicrobial-treated cleaning solution to clear off the grime, and another with a soft polishing buffer to make it gleam.

    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

    Price: $14.95

    16. A leak-proof sphere ice mold to make everything they drink feel so top shelf and fancy they may just spend the rest of quarantine writing a self-insert James Bond fan fiction.,

    Promising review: "These spherical ice cube makers are a lot of fun. Given that they're pretty cheap, I really wish I had bought them earlier! I was able to get significantly clearer spheres of ice when I boiled tap water before freezing (I poured it into the mold while it was still hot)." —dyanecek

    Price: $9.99 for a set of two (available in eight shapes)

    17. A teensy mini waffle maker that will churn out adorably-sized, perfectly cooked-through waffles in mere minutes — the kind of gift that just keeps on giving 🧇.

    If they're waffling on the waffles, they can also use it for hash browns, paninis, biscuits, and even (gasp) PIZZA. If they can dream it, they can mini waffle it.

    Promising review: "At first, I laughed thought it was too small to really do anything. I was so wrong — it's an amazing little waffle maker!! Can cook almost anything on it! I have cooked eggs, waffles, and French toast." —S PETERSON

    Price: $14.99+ (available in 20 styles and colors).

    18. A beloved Carharrt beanie (that has over 35,000 positive reviews!!) to help them stave off the cold all winter long, keeping their noggin both super warm and — perhaps most importantly of all — color-coordinated to their other winter gear. This comes in so many colors that whoops, you might just buy one for every person on your list.,

    Promising review: "Best type of this hat I've owned. I like this particular hat because it's long enough that, if it's really cold, you can pull the hat all the way down and double the fabric over your ears to keep them warmer. Most types of these hats I find are not deep enough to do that. So this is by far my favorite cold weather hat. Carhartt put some thought into this hat, and it paid off. Superior." —Dave

    *Another* promising review: "This is the warmest, best hat ever. I've never really worn hats, living in California, but have had to go to Minnesota and other cold places recently for work, and it keeps my head SO WARM. It's soft (I hate even the tiniest bit of scratchy feeling) and the purple sage color is muted and elegant and lovely. I don't think I will ever buy another kind of hat again!" —Lia

    Price: $16.99 (available in one size and 28 styles)

    19. A compact light-therapy lamp to mimic the morning sun and give them a lil' boost of energy and happiness — this UV-free lamp has three different brightness settings to bring the perfect amount of light to their life.

    A model working on a computer next to the small rectangular light propped on a table

    It also comes with a timer, so they can set it to stay on anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes before it shuts off automatically. They recommend users start with ten minutes (and avoid staring directly at it) to see how it impacts mood and energy before trying it for longer periods of time. Many reviewers swear by this for helping improve their mood, energy levels, and sleep by getting more "sunlight" in darker months when they might not actively be getting as much.

    Promising review: "This was wonderful the first instant I used it. I sat in silence on a dark morning with my coffee, having the light indirectly on me (two feet away) as I enjoyed the silence and my cat. By the end of the first cup of coffee, I was feeling a bit more awake (10 minutes into the 20-minute cycle I chose.) I suffer from SAD every single year. This year promises to be an easier year with this AMAZINGLY BRIGHT light. It means it when it says do not stare at it. However, that should be common sense. Three light settings, and you can either turn it on until you have 'had enough,' or use the hour-long timer which is divided into 10-minute increments. I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!!!" —Lonnie C. Appleby

    Price: $37.99

    20. A beginner's guide to calligraphy that is far more thorough and specific about technique and ink types than other versions, so they'll be sending you fancy pants formal invitations to their dog's Zoom birthday party in no time.

    the book open to a page where you can learn different styles to write the same word

    Promising review: "I’ve tried several instructional books on hand lettering. This book is the best by far. I won’t say the names of the other books but suffice it to say they are all at the top of the list when you search for hand lettering. It is the only book that gives practice for the base strokes and also discusses posture and how to hold the pen and at what angle to the paper. It is also a lovely book to work with; nice art work/illustrations. I recommend this book to other beginners out there!" —Karen Rorick

    Price: $21.23

    21. A heat-changing retro Super Mario Bros. mug so they can use their coffee to level up to whatever Bowsers they encounter through their day.


    Promising review: "Awesome mug. Perfect for anyone looking for a cool mug or a gift. A MUST for any Nintendo, Mario, NES fan." —Mark Edgell

    Price: $16.99

    22. A gorgeous oversized scarf so cozy it can basically double as an emergency blanket.,

    Promising review: "I am not really big on wearing scarves but thought this was cute and I’d try it out. It’s awesome!! It’s so soft easy to wear and you could even use it around your shoulders like a shawl. I got compliments all day when I wore it, i’m going to see if there different colors and buy a fee more!" —KmR

    Price: $11.99

    23. A waterproof Bluetooth shower speaker with a hook that attaches right to their curtains or a suction cup to stick it on their tiles, so you can boogie in the shower or go full Folklore in the bath with some candles burning., Amazon

    Psst — they can also taking this hiking or camping in the rain and strap it right to their 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 MP3's 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.

    Price: $18.99+ (available in six colors)

    24. A cup cozy pillow designed to stay the heck put on their bed, couch, or even your car, so they can have a safe place to stash their morning coffee, LaCroix cans, and snacks.

    A brown cushion with three holes for cups and mugs

    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

    Price: $27.99

    25. A cooling weighted blanket with natural glass beads on the inside for weighted pressure, a gift that will quickly become their favorite thing in their bedroom — a lot of reviewers mention it's helped them with insomnia and anxiety.

    A weighted blanket spread out on a king-sized bed

    Promising review: "Quarantine had me lonely, so I got this and it really helped me sleep. It feels like a hug. My friend, many states away, was stressed and lonely in his quarantine, so I got him one too, and he sleeps like a baby now. Wonderful for self or gift. I don't personally find it too hot in the summer if it's under 74 degrees, but If it's hotter than that, it might be too hot/heavy. Highly recommend." —Penny

    Price: $29.99+ (available in nine varied sizes and weights)

    26. Plus 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.,

    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 and 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

    Price: $15.99 (available in three colors)

    27. A lightweight faux-leather tote so versatile and roomy, it'll last them through every season.


    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

    Price: $15.29 (available in 48 colors)

    28. An organic cat grass kit complete with its own kitty-shaped mug so they can grow some nibbles for their furriest friend — they should see full stalks in just five to seven days 😻.

    A white cat shaped mug with cat grass growing out of it that a cat is nibbling

    Promising review: "This organic kitty grass kit is the answer to all of my problems. I found that when I would buy kitty grass at the store it was always nearly passed its prime or it just didn't look fresh. This kit changes everything. In just a day I started to see growth and within two days my cats had fresh, dewy kitty grass in front of their furry faces. I ordered the kit plus the replacements and I used one of the replacements in another kitty cat mug I had and it worked just as well. I love it all and can't wait to re-order. This is definitely a hit in my house!" —Carrie Scott

    Price: $15.97

    29. A splurge-worthy pair of AirPods Pro with a wireless charging case to give them the gift of hands-free, noise-proof bliss. Once these toggle into "noise-cancelling" mode it's basically like the world disappeared.


    I have a pair of these, and they're not playing around. Once they're securely in your ear, you can toggle the headphones between noise-cancelling and regular sound, depending on your situation. I've been working from home, and the noise-cancelling is so effective that I can work next to a window where my neighbor is doing heavy construction and I don't hear anything louder than a faint buzzing. It's quieter than if I'd just plugged my ears with my own fingers. I'm also a runner, and these don't budge when you're sweating, which is nice. It's also handy that these toggle out of noise cancellation mode, because I feel better being able to hear traffic and other people around me when I'm out and about. The TL;DR is I love these so much I have zero interest in owning another pair of headphones for as long as I live.

    Promising review: "Debated on spending the money for these. Finally just buckled down and got these and LOVE THEM. I love how I can open the case next to my iPhone and a picture pops up telling me about battery life. They were already hooked up to my phone — I didn't have to do anything (major plus for a non-techie like me). I've had zero issues with them cutting out. I typically use them when I'm mowing the lawn and listen to podcasts. When I have the noise cancellation on, I CAN'T HEAR THE MOWER. They're comfy, easy to put in, and I loooooooove not having the wire tethering me to the phone in my pocket when I'm trying to mow. No more getting tangled up when I grab the handle. Never cuts out. Sound is GREAT. (Chucked my Bose for these. Don't even miss them.)" —Traveler

    Price: $219

    30. 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. Sorry, Netflix. This is their new TV.


    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

    Price: $49.55 (available in four colors)

    31. 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?,

    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. packages 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

    Price: $16.99 (available in 13 colors)

    32. 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.

    Reviewer image of a wooden bath caddy holding an iPad, washcoth, plant, candle, wine glass, bath salts

    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 candle holder, 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

    Price: $44.97+ (available in seven colors)

    33. A reliable wireless charging pad to make them feel like a magician — TBH, this thing charges so many of their gadgets it may end up being the only one they'll ever need.

    A model placing a phone down on a wireless black charging pad

    This little power bank can charge *deep breath*: the iPhone SE, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, Xs Max, XR, XS, X, 8, and 8 Plus; AirPods; and the Galaxy S20, S10, S9, S8, and Galaxy Note 10, 9, and 8.

    Promising review: "I gave up on wireless charging years ago. Not reliable and super slow. This one seems to charge my mophie battery case faster than being plugged directly into the charger. How does that work? As long as you know where to place your phone it seems to charge fine. And the blue light is nice to show its charging. But for the price you can't go wrong. You could easily make something to hold this and your phone if you really wanted to. Long as you place it in the middle though it really is fine." —DJK

    Price: $11.95

    34. A Drinking Animals Coloring Book complete with recipes for themed cocktails on each page, because honestly, who wouldn't want to wile the hours away coloring while sipping a Llamirita?,

    Promising review: "I love coloring and I love cocktails, so this coloring book couldn't be more perfect! I usually like to drink alcohol and color on my Friday nights, so this makes it even more fun!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $7.97

    35. An Embark dog DNA test perfect for anyone with a furry friend. All they have to do is send a swab of Fido's cheek, and it'll narrow their doggy heritage down to 250 breeds *plus* test for over 160 diseases and drug sensitivities!

    A dog posing with the kit

    Promising review: "Very cool. My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a border collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality a border collie. Come to find out he’s a Shih-tzu–pit bull mix, which makes way more sense." —dede123

    36. An air fryer that can cook so many different dishes using the power of rapid air technology they'll want to try something new in it every day of the week. Perfectly crisped french fries and chicken wings in 20 minutes, no oil required!! The future is now.


    I got the smaller version of this air fryer (available on Amazon for $49.99) and I feel like a princess now because I roast tomatoes in it for a quick 10 minutes with my eggs every morning and it makes me feel like I'm eating hotel room service. I also use it for crispy Brussels sprouts, Hasselback potatoes, baked apples with cinnamon, and even once put orange rings covered in olive oil in there and it was basically Christmas in my mouth.

    Promising review: "I love fried food (I use various healthy oils; grape seed, olive, avocado) but I hate the mess. This contains everything so no splashing. Very easy to clean. I put the basket in the sink to soak while we eat and then lightly scrub afterward. So easy to make chicken wings, fried shrimp, and lots of vegetables. We got it for Christmas and my wife commented that I seem to use have used it every day since. Very happy." —Larry Greenblatt

    Price: $75.99+ (available in four colors)

    37. A glare-free Kindle Paperwhite that not only can 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!!), and it's waterproof, so they can take this bb in the bathtub 🍷.


    Promising review: "I was very slow to the e-reader game; I am a voracious reader and thought I would not want to read from a screen, since I do that all day at my job. I purchased one after four weeks of 'stay home stay safe,' and had read everything in the house multiple times. The library has been closed for six weeks. I LOVE THIS THING. With a few customizations of layout and font, I may as well be reading from a book. With the Kindle Unlimited, I can choose from soooooo many books. I’ve had this thing for three days and I’ve read five books. Can’t believe I didn’t get one years ago." —Jess Mo

    38. An "Everything Happens For No Reason" calendar, because we all have that *one* friend (or TBH, entire friend groups) that would appreciate its blunt humor.


    This calendar includes tear-off days for Jan. 1, 2021 through Dec. 31, 2021, and is based off the Instagram account "unspirational."

    Price: $14.39

    39. A cosmopolitan bar cart so darn sophisticated that they'll want to launch an entire Instagram account around styling it. Bonus — it folds in a cinch for easy storage!

    A white bar car with gold detail and transparent wheels, with two shelves

    Promising review: "I love this cart! Let me count the ways. It is foldable! It is easy to put together! The wheels come with a wench to tighten! The handles come with screws and an Allen wrench for tightening. I put this together in just a few minutes and it works great!" —L L Larkin

    Price: $114.14+ (available in two styles)
