3. A handy charging pad so they never have waste minutes on end trying to find that *exact* angle for their charging cord to actually work.

This is compatible with both Apple and Android phones.

Promising review: "One of the most aesthetically pleasing wireless chargers I've ever seen & used. I've tried different ones and they either take too long to charge and gets hot or are bulky. This one is perfect for leaving at home, work and taking with you to travel." —Ken

Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in eight colors).

4. A cashmere cream lipstick by BH cosmetics that's the perfect size to toss in their stocking, and the perfect price to toss one in your stocking, too.

BH Cosmetics

Promising review: "The cashmere creams I got were two different colors that look great together and on their own. The drying time doesn't take too long, maybe about five minutes. The quality is amazing as it makes my lips look full and doesn't stain them. It has a slight sheer finish when first applied, then goes to a slight matte look when finished drying. These are great and the tubes are squeezable so you can get the most out of your buck." —Meaghan C.

Get it from BH Cosmetics $8 (available in 14 shades).

5. A sliding clasp bracelet for the person you have no idea what to get for(including any of their sizes). It's cute, simple, and most importantly, *adjustable*.

Get them from Old Navy for $15 (available in sizes XS-XXL including tall sizes and five patterns).

8. A Boie face scrubber they can use to gently exfoliate and cleanse their face (because, little do they know, that washcloth they use several times a week is a hotbed for nasty bacteria). Boie's products are antimicrobial AND sustainably made.

Urban Outfitters

All they'll have to do is add a few drops of their favorite facial cleanser, lather it under some water, and then gently cleanse their face in circular motions.

Promising review: "Awesome product! I was buying the face exfoliating sponges for the longest time and thought I would give this a try instead — I LOVE IT! I use it everyday at least once a day and it has really improved my skin. I swear my pores have shrunk and I have been breaking out less. Buy it!!!" —mags p

Promising review: "Very cute! I bought it for a friend for her birthday and she loved it. It's very aesthetically pleasing and nice to the touch, but definitely will break if you drop it, so keep it in a safe area. It's the perfect size to display your special jewelry. It's very nicely made, and is perfect for someone who loves that natural aesthetic." —Lisa

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

10. An exfoliating bar from Glossier for the skincare lover who saw their favorite influencer use it and has been wanting to try it forever.

Get it from Glossier for $14.

Each eyeglasses holder is handcrafted by artisans in India. They stand 6-inches tall and 2.5-inches wide.

Promising review: "Excellent gift! Nice packaging, too. Includes a special little write-up about the company. I love that they're handcrafted. It takes up a modest amount of space, so you dont have to worry about it overcrowding your nightstand. I was afraid they might be tippy but they're not. They're lightweight, yet well-balanced, with a sturdy base. The natural wood would go nicely with any decor. Enjoy!" —Banks Family

Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

12. Reusable makeup remover pads for the eco-conscious person who'll appreciate the fact that they can simply toss these in the wash and reuse them day after day.

Promising review: "They feel amazing! They clean great since they come with a baggy to put them in so you don’t lose them in the wash! PLEASE consider these rather than the throwaway ones!!" —Kerrin

16. A reusable bamboo cutlery set that gives them all the utensils they could ever need (fork, knife, spoon, chopsticks, straw, cleaning brush, toothbrush, AND carrying pouch) to eat mindfully on the go and avoid unnecessary plastic consumption.

Promising review: "First of all, if you are buying a bamboo cutlery set, you probably are interested in reducing wasteful plastic in the environment. I was pleased to see that this product came with minimal, recyclable packaging! Secondly, unlike previous bamboo cutlery sets I’ve purchased, this comes with a knife that actually has teeth. It’s bamboo, but with notches that allow you to use it as more than just a butter knife. I love that there is not only a bamboo ‘straw’, but it comes with a brush to clean the straw effectively. Finally, bonus: a toothbrush! Very thoughtful. My classmates all took pictures of my kit because they want to order it too." —Morgan Dawning

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

17. A mini light because their purse or backpack is a vast, unknown world that somehow has more stuff shoved in it than Mary Poppins' magical bag.

Promising review: "This was great when I went shopping on Black Friday. It lit my purse up more than enough so I could easily see and grab my shopping list, coupon, and card. Not only that, but the light was also bright enough to light a small room as well. I originally thought I wouldn’t like it since it didn’t have an on and off switch but quickly grown to loving it. It only stays on for roughly 15 seconds before automatically turning off." —Linda37

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

18. A set of geometric stacking trays they can use to beautifully display all their jewelry and trinkets OR as a tray for Sunday morning breakfasts in bed.

Promising review: "I absolutely love it! I was looking for a tray from a famous designer and I got a better product and value for less than half the price. At the beginning I thought I was not going to like it that much because it is plastic but now that I have it I like it even more since the material is easier to clean, perfect to organize my desk, the colors are beautiful and the shape and sizes are so playful. Two thumbs up!" —Nataly Tovar

Get it from Amazon for $9.89.

19. An avocado slicing tool for anyone on your list who loves a good avo toast, but doesn't love shelling out a small fortune every weekend at their favorite brunch place. This'll give them that restaurant-quality slice so they can save money without forgoing their go-to brunch staple. 🥑


Promising review: "High quality. The feature that sets this apart from cheaper tools is the pit remover. I actually cut my palm and needed stitches removing a pit with a knife. Then someone told me about tools like this. The slicer part also works fine for me and saves a lot of time over manual slicing. Cleanup is simple. Run water over it in the sink, then put it in the dinnerware basket in the dishwasher. Great gift idea!" —W.S.

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

20. A water-resistant watch that, in a world full of expensive smart watches, is a refreshing piece of practical, affordable technology anyone on your list is sure to appreciate.

Get it from Amazon for $13.68.

Promising review: "I've been trying to minimize usage of unnecessary plastic bags when running quick errands. I've bought re-usable grocery bags, but they are too large for a quick pop into the drug store. Cue this bag — it's cute, it's small, but it holds more than you'd think and is so sturdy! I keep it in my purse all the time and I use it constantly. It's the perfect size for a small needs situation and I've used it at the grocery store, the drug store, little boutique purchases, everything. Love it!" —dcjaime

Get it from Amazon for $10.

22. A minimalist wallet with eight card slots and RFID-blocking technology to protect their identity (assuming they don't leave this one behind on the subway, again).

Promising review: "I really love this wallet. I was replacing a worn-out traditional folding wallet, which my cards fell out of, and it was too bulky. I looked at few different ones on here and went with this one. It’s awesome. Slips into my front pocket, it’s lightweight, holds all my cards. I only carry four. I really like the favorite card slot. I can easily access my debit card using one hand. It has a clear window ID slot. It has two slots for cash or a biz card, etc. it’s great not carrying a bulky, big wallet. It’s very well-made too!" —D. Swan

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in six leathers and nine colors).

23. A handheld electric milk frother that'll make their morning coffee (whether it be hot or iced) a little extra special.

Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

24. Or a self-stirring mug, because why dirty a spoon just to stir their creamer if they don't have to!?

Promising review: "I loved this product! I was a little apprehensive to purchase this, but at the end of the day, it's worth it! So cool and easy to use. The only thing is that I must say is, if you drink powder shakes, try to not put too much powder in it. It will take longer to stir. And also, you may use a spoon to help to dissolve all the powder at beginning, but after a few minutes the mug does its work! Really nice. I recommend it."—Rosana Sueli Carmonario

Get one from Amazon for $9.45.

25. A trendy initial necklace that'll add a nice touch of personalization to their OOTDs., Amazon

Promising review: "I love this necklace it looks just like the famous clothing store who sells the same thing. It’s a fraction of the price and seems to be good quality." —Mrs Hill

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in gold, rose gold, and silver and all 26 letters — plus a small initial size).

26. A box of "You're Awesome" cards that pop open to reveal a kind, uplifting message guaranteed to show them just how much you appreciate their love and support (be prepared for tears!). 😭

card that reads "Do you know what you are? You are a marvel."

Promising review: "I’m lucky to work with a terrific group of people, so I like to put a tiny surprise on their desks for when they arrive on Valentine’s Day. These little You’re Awesome cards were this year’s little something, and they loved them. Feedback was amazing. I asked many people what their cards said, and the sayings were surprisingly eloquent and varied. And somehow each saying was perfectly suited to its person! Lots of smiles and hugs. I thought the size was perfect, and the card design is really cute, so I wouldn’t hide these in envelopes." —DDM11

Get a 30-pack from Amazon for $9.50 (available in 19 themes).

27. A jade roller and gua sha set designed to help their face absorb skincare products and will just feel oh-so-good — it's effectively like gifting them a little at-home facial treatment!

A reviewer holding the green double-sided roller and gua sha

Promising review: "So far I'm really enjoying this product! Both the roller and guasha tool seem to be made out of real Jade and are high quality. I got these because my face tends to get really puffy, especially during allergy season. They come in neat a package with clear instructions. I watched several additional YouTube videos about how to use them. I used the Guasha tool once a day and go through the full routine, and the Jade roller throughout the day, while I'm working or watching TV in the evening. I've had them for a pretty short time but I feel like I'm already noticing a difference. If nothing else it's a very soothing and relaxing habit. I'd definitely recommend it to a friend or give the set as a gift in the future!" —Grace KB

Get it from Amazon for $12.94 (also available in a rose quartz roller).

28. And, a cute definition print that makes for the *perfect* last-minute gift — all you have to do is download it, print it, and frame it.
