1. A Wreck This Journal that'll get their creative side flowing, thanks to cool prompts that encourage a combo of art and writing. The best part? No boring blank lines!

Promising review: "I’m 17 and I loved this. In the intro it says the page instructions are all up to interpretation, so if it says 'spill your drink' or something you can take that literally or choose to paint on it with something such as tea or coffee that’ll look like brown watercolor. I would recommend this if you’re just looking for something fun or if you’re going through some challenges this is really helpful to distract/express/push yourself!" —Marlee

Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

2. Or a copy of Burn After Writing — a guided journal with interactive questions and thought experiments that'll encourage them to take a scrolling break and write out whatever they're feeling at the moment. 

Promising review: "I first saw this book on TikTok and decided to look more into it. I purchased four total because I know some people holding onto things that are difficult to let go of. It’s a great way to look at things from a different perspective and truly hold yourself accountable to different things in your life. I love what it stands for and I look forward to when I burn mine after I’m done. Self love, self care, and meditation for a better state of mind tomorrow is always the goal. I definitely recommend it to those susceptible to change and the willingness to try things different. You’re so much more than what’s been done to you and someone’s inability to see your worth does not decrease your value. Choose you for a change." —Brent Helm

Get it from Amazon for $7

3. A JW Pei handbag because they need a chic accessory that'll hold their essentials — aka a cellphone, keys, wallet, and some lip balm. Plus, it'll complete whatever outfit they're wearing, even if it's just a basic blouse, a pair of jeans, and booties.

JW Pei is an Asian- and family-owned accessories brand based in Los Angeles. They sell minimalist handbags and shoes made with sustainable vegan materials.

BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd owns this pretty accessory and said: "When I started seeing this new 'it bag' all over Instagram, I knew I had to have it. What shocked me was the fact that it's less than $100! The quality is amazing — the vegan leather is sturdy, it has a nice faux-suede lining, and the magnetic closure actually stays closed. The adorable 'scrunchie' design is such a great way to jazz up an outfit. Plus, it's a great size for the necessities like my phone, wallet, keys, mask, and lip gloss. I definitely plan on buying more colors!" 

Promising reviews: "Bought this as a gift for my sister — a cute fun purse that’s just big enough for your phone and small essentials. She loves it!" —Amazon Customer

"Needed a small purse for a wedding! I also wanted something that I could use even when I dress more casually. This bag (see image on the right) is super adorable, great quality, and stylish!" —Gaby Rochino

Get it from JW Pei for $89 or Amazon for $79.99 (available in 15 colors).

4. Lightsaber chopsticks to help them enjoy takeout ~in a galaxy far, far away~ (aka the kitchen). These babies glow and grip well on sushi and noodles, making their next lunch break a super-fun and mess-free experience.

My coworker Emma Lord owns these and raves: "I love them to pieces, TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat." You can read more of her lightsaber chopsticks review (it's #14).

Promising review: "Bought these for a white elephant and everyone loved them! My friends are huge Star Wars fans and absolutely love these chopsticks. Great color quality and great LED light quality. They're well made, easy to clean, and a nice weight! Would recommend for sure, very fun and cute gift!" —Nik

Get it from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in 10 colors and also in 2-packs).

5. A deep tissue massage gun so they can get some relief from achy muscles. This portable tool has five massage heads and up to five speeds that'll target their arms, back, and legs and help minimize tightness in those areas. They'll love using it after exercising, because it'll get to work on all the sore spots.

Other cool features include a quiet motor and the ability to be charged up on the go, thanks to a USB-type charger that works with a power bank, phone adapter, and 5v/2a adapter.

Promising review: "This massage gun has been really fun for our family. My wife has struggled with pain in her hips and gluteal area for years. We have use this in the evenings frequently and definitely noticed pain relief. I have used it after a good hard workout and also noticed that I am not as sore. Also, we have been very impressed with the battery life. We can both use it quite a bit and not have to charge it for days." —Brent

Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in three colors).

6. Or a heated eye massager with so many cool features including five different massage modes, adjustable built-in heating pads, a 15-minute timer, and Bluetooth music! They can listen to chill beats and slide this baby on their eyelids to help minimize puffy under-eye circles and eye strain.

Promising review: "These are amazing. I suffer from eye disease and part of the symptoms are strained eyes, severe dry eye, headaches, and puffiness from the stress on my eyes. My doctor advised I get a heated eye mask and use it 20 minutes a day. Why didn’t he tell me this two years ago?! I went with this product based on what it offered for the price and the great reviews. 

AHHHH! The heat is perfect. The massage is deep into my temples and covers all around the eyes and all the way into the small pressure points by my nose. The music is a bonus. The vibration, massage, pressure, heat, and tranquil music make this the best gift idea for anyone on your list." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in two colors). 

7. A hair claw clip to keep their hair up and give a '90s vibe to any outfit. A secure grip keeps strands in place, so they can go about their day without hair problems. It also comes in a bunch of colors for easy styling — BRB, adding these to my cart for stocking stuffers!

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

8. A cool "As It Was" print that'll delight any Harry Styles fan and look so darn good in their living space. They can frame it and hang it up above their dresser, desk, or kitchen table — just think of all the decor possibilities with this eye-catching gift!

9. Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza for their next family game night. It's fun, fast, and the objective is easy: if there's a match between one of the cards and a word said out loud, they have to be the first to slap the pile. Whoever has no more cards first wins!

10. Or a Love Lingual card game that'll be a fun stocking stuffer and be perf for their next date night. It comes with 150 convo starter questions, so they can get to know their partner more *and* enjoy each other's company.

Promising review: "Okay, these are the perfect gift for any couple! I packed these in our carry-on for our honeymoon in Mexico. We each would draw a card at restaurants while waiting for our food. I have been with my husband for 7 years (recently married though!) and I learned a lot about him and heard stories he had of us that I had forgotten about. These are amazing and I can’t wait to keep the questions coming." —megelizabeth23

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

11. A Yonanas fruit soft-serve maker so they can turn bananas, berries, and mangos into a yummy frozen treat. Reviewers swear by this gadget and say it creates a dessert that tastes like creamy ice cream or sorbet. 😲

Slice and freeze over ripe fruit, place frozen fruit into the chute, and they'll have something sweet to eat in little time! The machine's removable parts are also top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning.

Promising review: "I saw one of these in action at a friends house like five years ago and thought it was just a made up memory, because making ice cream out of solely frozen fruit seems wild. But when I saw a TikTok about it I immediately went to Amazon and bought it. Literally this was the BEST decision of my life. I cannot believe still how amazing this thing is! It makes the creamiest, best tasting fruit ice cream ever. It’s easy to take apart and clean, and super easy to use." —DMCKAY

Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in six colors). 

12. A Revlon dual dryer and brush that'll dry and style their hair at the same time. Its three heat settings will get to work on wet strands, while its rounded edges and an oval brush design increase volume and curl their ends. If anyone you know needs a beauty tool that's not a basic blow dryer or curling iron, definitely gift them this one!

Promising review: "OH MY LANTA. PURCHASE THIS NOW. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. I have thick hair, and this dries my hair in less than 15 minutes. PLUS, I don’t have to fuss with a straightener or a curling iron if I don’t want to!! It leaves my hair so soft and shiny and gives it SO MUCH VOLUME! I recommend this to ANYONE I talk to about it. Seriously, my favorite styling tool. Seriously, so in love." —Sydney

Get it from Amazon for $32.49+ (available in two styles).

13. TikTok famous cloud magnetic key holder for the wall near their bed, desk, or hallway. It can hold up to three key rings at a time and it doubles duty as a cute piece of decor! They'll avoid the annoying problem of "where the heck are my keys?" if they're rushing out the door. 

Promising review: "I bought this product almost two years ago for my college apartment and it's the best thing I ever bought! Perfect place to hang my keys up when I get home and I never lose them! It also looks very cute and simple. The adhesive is really strong and the magnet in it super strong as well. It holds up my apartment keys, my car keys, and my boyfriend's heavy Audi keys perfectly fine. Love it." —Meghan Consadene

Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

14. A pair of adjustable Bala Bangles that'll add a lil' resistance (not to mention style) to their fitness routine. They only weigh one pound each, but they'll help boost strength whenever they're doing cardio or taking a barre class.

These Bala Bangles are available in two sizes (1 pound or 2 pounds) for their workout needs.

Promising review: "I ordered these to be worn around my ankles so I that I can work on my control and strength for skiing. They are the perfect addition to my workout and to my lifestyle.

Get it from Amazon (available two colors) or Bala (available in nine colors) for $55+.

If they don't have a curing UV lamp, here's one to include in your gift with the set above! 

Promising review: "#1 gel polish on Amazon. Look no further. This is better than any OPI or Essie gel I’ve used. It’s so easy to apply, not thick and clumpy like some brands. The colors are very pigmented and let me tell you, they last a longgggg time!!! I’m in the dental field and I usually chip my polish, break a nail... you get the picture but this polish is a dream. I’m buying all the colors. I’m obsessed and will be recommending this brand to EVERYONE!!!" —Jessica Lange

Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in 11 color sets).

17. A Takeya cold brew maker that'll make them amazing iced coffee whenever they want. It's easy to use and will save them money (spending $5 on a cold brew frequently gets expensive). They can teach themselves how to be a barista without leaving their kitchen.

They'll get a Takeya cold brew pitcher, ultra-fine mesh filter, and instructions to help them brew delicious iced coffee.

Once it's ready, they'll have fresh cold brew coffee to drink whenever they need a pick-me-up. ☕

BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer swears by this coffee gadget and said: "It's so delish, it makes mornings far more bearable. It’s also great for keeping in the office when that 3 p.m. slump hits but you don’t feel like going to a coffee shop (or spending $5 on cold brew)." Read more of her Takeya cold brew maker review.

Get it from Amazon for $23.80+ (also available in a 2-quart size and three colors).

Promising review: "I saw this product on TIkTok and automatically liked it! I love that it comes in so many different colors and the top is wood. I drink lots of water and needed a cup I could take with me everywhere. I could also put iced coffee in it too. I love that it came with two straws a clear one and white. I will be purchasing another one for my husband and also one for my mom in different colors!" —Rose

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in 33 colors and in 2-packs).

Promising review: "The Zulay milk frother is very easy to use and only takes about 15 seconds to froth milk. We use ours everyday for lattes and frothy hot chocolate. The sleek design makes it easy to hold while using. It comes with a stand so it's easy to store on top of your kitchen counter or anywhere. This is a great gift and you can't beat the price! You won't be disappointed!" —Bono

Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

20. comfy and cozy hoodie that they'll wear again and again on flights. Cotton-blended fleece fabric and a built-in sleeping mask will literally leave them on ~cloud nine~ when they fly. And, they can leave that bulky, hard-to-pack travel blanket out of their luggage for good.

BuzzFeeder Marquaysa Battle loves this hoodie and said: "I own this in black and I actually factually REFUSE to wear any other hoodie to the airport. I pull my sleep mask down and it's a wrap, OK?! Asleep before takeoff. When you're wearing it and dedicating your travel style to it like me, then be sure to shout out the Pond Los Angeles that makes it! It's a woman-owned and Asian American-owned clothing and accessories brand based in Cali that intentionally uses a woman-led manufacturer to create its lovely pieces."

Get it from Pond Los Angeles for $105 (originally $128; available in women's sizes XS–XL and also in black).

21. A burrito blanket for the person who loves to ~wrap~ themselves in a warm cocoon when it's a cold day. Shoutout to the reviewer below who actually wrapped this gem in REAL foil when they gave it as a gift!
