    1. A Dead Sea mud mask they can use to host a makeshift spa night with their friends. Fresh skin and an opportunity to post silly selfies? What more could anyone want?,

    My sister and I have used this mask countless times while watching trash TV on my couch — it's a fun way to bond and improve our skin. A little goes a long way so this product will last 'em quite a while.

    Promising review: "I'm not joking, I thought this was just going to be a normal face mask but I was wrong. The application was smooth and easy. After waiting 10 minutes, I took it off face was smooth as a baby's butt, no lie. This made my face so soft and feeling refreshed and hydrated!!!" —olesya gordeyeva

    2. A John Frieda hot brush for anyone who looooves to get pampered with a blow out but can't actually afford to get one every week.

    BuzzFeed /

    Promising review: "I am not a paid person who writes reviews. In fact I usually don't write them at all. But let me start out by saying holy crap! This is amazing, not only was it so easy and fast... I have a salon blowout that actually looks great...and I never went to the salon! So I can't so my hair at all ever. The best I do is flat iron or messy bun, mkay? But I'm obsessed. When I go to the salon it looks great for two days and then bam I'm crying, 'cause I can't get my hair pretty like she did it, and now I hate it and myself. Sound familiar? Well I'm living proof this is amazing and it truly works. I won't lie I was hesitant because this looks and sound like crap/too good to be true. It's not!!! Happy buying — I'm buying another for my mom for Xmas how awesome!" —tangi raysor

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I gotta say this is the best sharpener I ever bought in my whole life. I got it today and brought it to work. I work at a Japanese restaurant as a sushi chef and I sharpened it at work and, wow, my knife was as sharp as a samurai sword! Even my coworkers were surprised and asked me to order one for them. Thanks for the product ! Now I don't have to use the stone or sharpen rod that much anymore." —Rodrigo

    andrewsmcmeel / Via

    5. A couple's card game you and your partner can whip out on a Friday night when you're tired of watching endless hours of Netflix and wanna reconnect.


    The box includes 100 unique conversation starters ranging from basic and lighthearted to more serious situations. With questions like, "What was your proudest moment from the last 12 months?" and "What's one dream that you've tucked away for the moment?" you're sure to find something you and your S.O. can really connect with.

    Promising review: "This game, if we should call it a game, is so wonderful. We opened the box and just randomly started choosing out cards. Some of the cards were quick and straightforward, while other were more thought provoking. We got some good laughs out of this and it was truly a refreshing change compared to our previous casual conversations. I see this can being very useful for couples who want to get to know each other but also for couples like us, who are so busy in our day-to-day with the work and kids. It gave us something different to talk about outside the typical operational 'how was your day' type of conversations." —Orit

    6. Four trinket dishes that'll connect together to form one intricately designed place to store all odds 'n' ends efficiently and beautifully.


    Promising review: "This tray is cute, modern, durable, and is a great compliment to many rooms in my home. I find that having four individual trays is convenient, and I also like that I can combine them together if I do not need to have everything separate. Having the ability to customize the pieces is handy for creativity, as well as complimenting the space I want to use them in. I sometimes have random trinkets that quickly clutter up a space and this tray is a great way to visually add division and organization." —Kimhoay

    7. A set of bath bombs they can toss into the tub to unwind after a particularly stressful day and watch their worries ~fizzle~ away.


    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BATH BOMBS!!!! I think they are fun in terms of the packaging, the names, the colors and the little 'extras' mixed in the bombs. I personally feel they are just the right size and love the colors. The first time around I was concerned about the color part but no worries — doesn't stain the tub. They are very moisturizing for the long tough New York winter we are experiencing this year; my skin tends to be dry but using these bath bombs on a regular basis has helped to keep my skin nice and soft. And the number of bath bombs in the set along with the price is just right!" —Pamela

    8. A four-pack of pizza socks they won't find ~cheesy~ at all when their toes are as toasty as a pie fresh out of the oven., Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this as a surprise for my significant other, and he LOVED it! He is a sock fanatic and is always looking for new fun pairs of socks, and the presentation of this was a perfect touch to make it even more fun to deliver. Everything fit perfectly, and the socks in the pizza box looked exactly like what was expected! Thanks so much!" —Logan

    9. A car seat gap filler, so they'll never have to fret about dropping their phone or a rogue french fry into a seemingly endless abyss never to be found again.,

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize it would be one of my most favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this. " —Tessa Forbes

    10. A tissue box cover that'll make anyone feel right at home, even if they have a bad case of the sniffles.


    Promising review: "I first spotted this at a swanky modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box — it practically vanishes! It looks so cute with the tissue-y 'billow' of smoke, and is functional too. Every modern minimalist's dream." —nycgirl

    It comes with seven bottles (three glass and three squeeze-bottles), a two-inch funnel, apple cider vinegar, spice blend, two pairs of gloves, five pH strips, peppers, instruction card, and labels.

    Promising review: "I bought this product as a gift for my s/o, he loves to cook and loves all things spicy. Recently he had ordered ghost peppers and didn’t know what to do with them. So I started researching hot sauce kits and came across this one. We were not disappointed!! The packaging was cute and making the hot sauce was something fun and different to enjoy together. Having this kit it made it so easy!!! All of our friends have heard about our hot sauce–making adventure and want to know where to get a kit for themselves. Everything is included: tiny glass storing bottles, the spices, little squeeze bottles and tiny fill-in labels. He absolutely loved this gift and I can’t believe I got it for the price, considering everything that’s included. 10/10 would recommend" —Sam

    12. An unofficial Harry Potter cookbook so the fan in your life can be a ~wizard~ in the kitchen, not just at Hogwarts., Amazon

    You can whip up magical treats like treacle tarts, pumpkin pasties, and Molly's meat pies.

    Promising review: "I LOVE IT, I'm no master chef but this cookbook might change that. I might even become a master wizard chef! Anyways the recipes are phenomenal, especially the pies! It's pretty basic sometimes; it's more European type cuisine so if you don't like haggis, liver, lamb, or other English/Scottish dishes etc. then these recipes aren't for you. The book references are cute and I vaguely remember some of them. My younger siblings go crazy when I make anything from this book because they love Harry Potter." —Tigerlily

    13. A roll-on migraine stick to help nip their pain in the bud before it gets out of hand and ruins a perfectly good day.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    I actually did buy this for my best friend when she was starting to get so stressed out about her daily migraines. It helped immensely!

    Promising review: "I can't give this product enough stars! I have suffered from debilitating chronic migraines for years. Prescription medications, while effective, usually make me extremely tired and result in rebound headaches, so I rarely take them. This oil blend is especially great for the days when I have a migraine, but am unable to stay home and rest. This takes the edge off the pain enough that I am still able to go about my day and do everything I need to do. I also love the way it smells. I sometimes roll it on my wrists just to enjoy the energizing fragrance." —Lacey V

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Promising review: "Bought it for my 10-year-old daughter for her birthday sleepover. It was a huge hit! All the girls wanted one by the next day!" —Momof3lilmonkeys

    15. A supportive travel pillow for your wanderlust-filled friend or your pal who travels for work and spends way too much time on a plane or in the car.


    This is also our BuzzFeed Reviews midpriced pick for the best travel pillow!

    Promising review: "I must have two dozen travel pillows and not one of them has ever held my head in a position so that I could sleep on a plane. But this pillow was great. I slept all the way from California to Hawaii, during the day. I didn't mind it coiled around my neck. This is weird, but I have a long neck and I'm tall. The overlap on the pillow is perfect. At first I didn't think it would stay in place, but it does. And the back is not super thick, so it's comfy, not counterproductive.

    I'm super happy with this product. Worth the money." —Stinky Bunny

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in seven colors as well as in a child-size version).

    17. A curtain of twinkle lights to make them feel like they've headed for the second star on the right and landed in Neverland.

    If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    19. An odor-neutralizing candle for the pet parent who loves their pup so much but hates how they smell after getting caught in the rain during a walk.

    Amazon, Fiorella Alvarez

    Senior editor Elizabeth Lilly is passionate about Pet House candles. Here's what she had to say about 'em:

    "You're thinking 'A candle in a gift guide? Revolutionary, Elizabeth.' But HEAR ME OUT. I used to live with an adorable but v slobbery English bullie named Cleo (pictured in her festive glory) and lighting one of these for 10–20 minutes annihilated any hints of eau de dog or roasting Brussels sprouts in our small apartment. And these smell like regular candles, (not your typical odor-neutralizing ones), so really they're the best."

    Get it from Amazon for $21.85 (available in 26 scents).

    21. Fleece-lined memory foam slippers that'll make your loved one feel like they're walking on clouds. Just remind them to maybe change out of them before heading out of the house.,

    Promising review: "I really love these cozy, cute slippers! I read lots of slipper reviews before choosing these, and I'm glad I picked them. They feel really soft and warm on my feet, they stay on well, and they look nice. You might want to order the next size up if you're between sizes. The customer service for this was also excellent — super helpful and quick. If you need slippers, I highly recommend these!" —Elizabeth O'Brien

    23. A heated massager pillow anyone will be happy to have after a no good very bad day.


    Promising review: "I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I'm going to try my feet also. I've been wanting something like this for quite some time and I'm thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful." —Stephanie T.

    24. A pack of oven liners to protect the bottom of their oven from any overflow/oozing and let them continue on pretending they're competing on The Great British Baking Show worry-free.


    Promising review: "I expected to be happy, but I'm thrilled! Each mat is pliable and fits the entire width of my standard oven. When the mat is against the back wall, it extends up to but not over the front lip of the floor. On first use, pizza cheese and sauce dripped onto the front edge of the mat and onto that uncovered lip. The baked-on cheese and sauce slid right off the mat! Effortlessly! After I cleaned up the lip, I layered a second mat to cover the lip. These mats are so great that I almost want food to drip on them so I can show off how wonderful they are." —Artset Outset

    25. A Bug Bite Thing Suction Tool anyone who has always been prone to getting bug bites will appreciate. It gently removes the venom that makes the bite itch!

    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    Bek, an editor here at BuzzFeed, owns one of these and notes that while it doesn't completely get rid of bites, it does put a halt to the itching. It works with mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, chiggers, and sea lice! Note that some reviewers say the suction can be really strong, so try to use it gently; and the company doesn't recommend using it on your neck or face, because it can cause bruising there. (Read the full directions before using it!)

    26. A lengthening mascara that'll make them feel extra glamorous even if they don't put a drop of other makeup on that day.,

    Promising review: "My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an eight-hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy... and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    27. A squatty potty they might think is a gag gift until they give it a test run and see how amazing it actually is. Just write "thank me later" on the gift tag.


    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years — I wish this had come into my life sooner. Every time I step off the toilet now I feel lighter, fresher, and like a new person." —MsNiters

    28. Cut resistant gloves — a must-have for anyone who isn't super confident in their knife skills and would like to keep all of their digits.


    You can even pop these in the washing machine for a thorough cleaning.

    Promising review: "After my husband sliced his finger on our mandolin I decided to check out these gloves. We are both very impressed with how well they work. The company who sells these is also wonderful — they sent a follow-up email to ensure that we liked the gloves and would have replaced or refunded our money if we weren't happy. The only thing I was concerned about when I ordered the gloves was if I was buying the right size. My husband and I have different hand sizes, but the medium is working well for both of us. And knowing that they would send a different size free of charge was wonderful. Now we don't have to worry about slicing off our fingers!" —That Author Guy's Wife

    Promising review: "Recently decided to start a bullet journal, but absolutely hate my handwriting (it looks like a third-grader's scribble!). This book is really great!! It has a great breakdown of how the letters look on the lines and includes practice pages so you can improve your technique. I like to use it as a simple guide to make my writing better while I work on my journal. I think it has helped me improve leaps and bounds from where I started!" —DawnShadow

    30. Acne absorbing cover patches that'll blend in with any skin tone and are gentle enough for any skin type, so they can go about their day without worrying that it looks like they're growing a second head on their face.


    Avarelle's pimple patches are formulated with tea tree oil and calendula, which is said to heal and shrink zits overnight. A single pack comes with 40 patches in a variety of sizes to fit any pimple you've got.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots, and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World, and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems (a small cyst, a Whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked and has been a bump for about three weeks now.) I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal, because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Promising review: "Who wouldn't laugh at cat butts? I bought two of these. I sent one to my cousin. To start, she was having a bad day when she received it.

    32. A hair finishing stick for your friend who can't leave the house until their flyaway baby hairs have been put in their place.

    Promising review: "I rarely ever leave reviews, but THIS is amazing!! I have naturally frizzy hair that is also wavy and curly. I have a lot of breakage around the crown and this stuff sleeks it back but it doesn’t make it look greasy or crunchy! I suggest taking the mascara wand and wiping off the excess on the tube before applying so you don’t apply too much. When I apply too much all you have to do is let it dry and then scratch you’re fingernails from front to back to break it up and it still creates a sleek look without any crunchiness. I love this stuff so much I need to get another for my car on those days that my mom hair is looking terrible." —Adriana

    33. A 12-oz bottle of Mike's Hot Honey that'll help anyone take the flavors of their boring weeknight recipes to the next level with just a drizzle.


    I've introduced everyone in my life to this delectable condiment. Mike's Hot Honey is sweet with a kick of heat — you'll want to pour it over everything you eat. I personally love it on chicken cutlets and pepperoni pizza, but do with it what you will!

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

    34. A winged eyeliner stamp for your sister who obsesses over makeup tutorials but hasn't been able to perfect liquid eyeliner just yet.


    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out...but to my surprise I put the left cat eye on first and it was perfect. I thought this was a fluke and did the right eye...again, it came out clean and perfect! I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean crisp line. I can now do a cat eye EVERY day and look/feel like a badass. Everyone can think I spend hours doing my makeup in the morning." —LadyMeow

    35. An ever-popular Instant Pot with so many uses they'll need to take a deep breath before deciding what to make with it first., Amazon

    The Duo Plus replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sauté, steam, warm, sterilize... and oh, it makes cakes too. Read all about why the Instant Pot is changing how we cook in my BuzzFeed coworker's review.

    Promising Review: "I deliberated about buying one of these for so long (over a year). I regret all of this deliberation, because now that I have it, I'm not sure how I lived without it. Rice turns out perfectly every time. It's amazing. I push a button and walk away and end up with edible rice every single time. I love that this has so many uses in our combined vegetarian/omnivorous household. This Instant Pot produced the only pork dish that my husband has ever liked. I made an amazing vegan curry. I've made soy milk, almond milk, and cashew milk yogurts, and they've all been fantastic. I'll never 'boil' an egg any other way ever again. Eggs turn out perfectly every time and they are so easy to peel. Stop deliberating and buy this now!" —Laura

    36. A unique set of glasses your pal with an ~eye for design~ will be impressed you picked out — I mean, why wouldn't they? They totally rock (and so do you).


    Promising review: "What do you get for the boss that has everything? Rocks glasses and then have them custom etched locally. Amazing weight to these glasses and they hold a hefty pour. Asymmetrical shape so they’re kinda cool. Not boring and traditional like a lot of the other ones I’ve looked at. Nice packaging made gift giving easy. They etched beautifully and they're made very well." —harrump

    37. A Kindle Paperwhite for your bookworm bestie who prefers to kill time by reading rather than scrolling through nonsense on Instagram.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle Amazon has released to date! And — as is made abundantly clear by the photo above — it's 100% waterproof.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that I can read on this Kindle in both daylight and dim light conditions. It is so light and compact, which makes it easy to hold, easy to travel with, and the battery lasts forever. I love it." —Amazon Customer

    38. A hair scalp massager that'll quickly become their favorite shower accessory. They can use it to exfoliate and deep clean their scalp while applying your shampoo — it's a game changer.


    I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I'm really getting in there while I'm washing my hair, but it also recreates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

    Promising review: "Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I am immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product." —Lisa Agro

    39. A skeleton ice cube mold tray, so the master mixologist in your life can take their concoctions to the next level. Even if they claim to be ~dead inside~ they'll appreciate this present.


    Promising review: "The silicone mold is rigid enough to hold its shape but flexible enough to pop out the finished product without damaging either the ice or the mold. The level of detail is pretty impressive." —David M

    40. A fill-in-the-blank book with 50 prompts you can write in ahead of time and present to your loved one for a heartfelt gift they'll cherish.


    It's available in tons of versions, from ones for moms and dads and grandmas and grandpas to more general ones like "Why you make me smile" and "What I love about you."

    Promising review: "This is an adorable little book that is sure to bring tears to the eyes of whoever you're gifting it to! I purchased this and filled it in for my mom for Mother's Day. She loved it! And now she displays it in the living room, proud of the sweet daughter she has. If you're worried about getting a gift but you don't want to spend too much, this great! Takes a little bit of time to fill in, but definitely worth it when you see the look of joy on the person's face. I also purchased this for my boyfriend, some time after I had done it for my mom. It took some time to fill in, and it took some thinking, but it was enjoyable for both myself and for him. I found myself crossing out, adding in, and modifying a number of the pages, and it was still very cute! When we got into a fight later on, my boyfriend added in his own comments and things he loves about me, and slipped it into my handbag one day. You can believe I cried when I found it. I think this little book holds so much sentimental value, it's really just a great little gift." —Emilie C.

    41. A set of socks to keep your loved one's toes toasty all winter long — beware, you'll probably want to pick up some for yourself!


    Promising review: "These are wonderful socks. Soft and warm and not itchy at all like socks with such a high percentage of wool can be. They fit perfectly, hugging your foot instead of slipping around like a sloppy mess. Love the muted colors as well. Thinking about getting more in other colors!" —Debra A. Scott

    42. A One Line A Day journal anyone in your life will love because they can chronicle their days without feeling pressured to spend an hour writing each night.


    I got this as a gift recently and I'm obsessed. I've always loved journaling, but recently life has gotten in the way and I wasn't able to find the time to write. The One Line A Day journal solved that problem! It takes less than a minute to gather my thoughts and put pen to paper — and I still feel like I accomplished something! Your pal will, too.

    Promising review: "I love this journal! I've always found it hard to maintain a journal — I felt like I had to fill all that empty space, and most days didn't feel worth writing about. With this, I can write just a few sentences, which is exactly what I need. I absolutely love that this is a 5-year journal as well. I'm over a year into my plain blue original one, and reflecting back on the past year is helping me to really see how my life has changed (or not). I bought this version of the One Line a Day journal for a friend. The cover and pages are beautiful, fun, and modern. " —juliabos

    43. A massage roller they can use to apply acupressure on the bothersome parts of their feet to make them feel fantastic before heading off to bed. It's so easy to use they can roll away without taking their eyes off of the latest episode of The Crown.


    Promising review: "I’ve been having so many issues with my feet the last few years. My feet hurt so bad, it’s made me become a hermit. I’ve had tendinitis in both and now plantar fasciitis. I get foot cramps all the time. After just one day with this under my desk at work, I feel a huge difference. My feet no longer feel tight and painful. They feel tingly — in a good way. I look forward to being able to go for a walk and not have to rest along the way. I know it’s meant for feet but I may try it out on my calves. I also love that it’s small, looks nice and doesn’t slide around. I highly recommended this for anyone, foot issues or not, if you sit a lot. Nice way to keep the blood flowing when stuck at a desk." —Vanessa Thomas

    44. A pack of colorful silicone straws to share with your fellow environmentally conscious colleagues who accompany you on iced coffee runs.


    Promising review: "I was kind of shocked at how good quality these straws are! They come in a neat little baggie that you can store them in, and the straw cleaner as well! I don't usually leave reviews on products (even if I really like them), but they donate 100% of the proceeds of your order to OCEANA if you leave a review, and that's a HUGE plus for me. So not only do I really like the product, I get to share the good news through this review AND my payment gets donated to OCEANA. I really really appreciate that. 10/10 product!" —Amazon Customer

    45. Or a LifeStraw personal water filter so your adventurous friend or family member who lives to hike will always have access to fresh, clean water.

    Promising review: "Used it on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." —Kingston

    46. An ice roller, which is said to help decrease under-eye puffiness, minimize fine lines, and shrink the look of pores — as well as to relieve headaches and sore muscles.,

    My sister bought this for me and I'm obsessed with it — which is why I know it's awesome! It's my favorite thing to start my pampering with, but I also use it in the morning before I apply any makeup. All you have to do is pop the separate roller piece into your freezer and you'll be ready to de-puff in no time.

    Promising review: "Extremely affordable and feels great on my face right when I wake up in the morning!! I can feel the difference after a couple of rolls along my puffy eyes and face. It soothes my puffiness with the cold but bearable feeling. And it does stay cool for a good amount of time. Best thing is its not a watery mess." —Tammy N.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in eight colors).

    47. A Little Tikes Tasty Jr. kitchen set that'll have the budding chef in your life prepped and ready to create some delectable faux treats.


    Our too-cute kit (from BuzzFeed's Tasty!) comes with over 40 pieces of food and accessories, a pretend play oven and fridge, and has adjustable heights so kids can continue to play as they grow.

    Promising review: "We were going to wait for Christmas but decided to bring it out this past weekend for my daughter. It's REALLY cute. I've seen other Little Tikes models but this set is super fun because it has little modern foods and cute emoji faces on em. It's adorable and you can build it into a shorter or taller set up depending on your child's age." —Emmy Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $64.98.

    48. A copy of Magnolia Table (by interior designer extraordinaire Joanna Gaines) to remind them how much they love hosting holidays at their home.


    Promising review: "This is probably the prettiest cookbook I have ever gotten. I received one as a gift, and I ordered this one to give as a gift. It makes the perfect housewarming or hostess gift. The recipes are not fussy and easy to prepare as well as delicious. It has everything from appetizers, brunch, entrees, and desserts. The pictures are beautiful. I don’t like things on my counter but this is so pretty I made an exception. My husband loves to cook and is using it. It even won him over. I highly recommend this cookbook." —Elle J

    49. Layered tassel earrings accompanied by a druzy stud to add some extra glam to your loved one's accessory game.


    Promising review: "These earrings are exactly what they look like! They are light and vibrant, and went perfectly with my dress for graduation. They are not falling apart or shedding like other similar earrings had earned reputations of doing (based on reviews). They hang at a good length and did not tickle my neck or annoy me by hitting my shoulders. I am glad I chose these earrings!" —Amazon Customer

    50. A stylish futon, a must-have for anyone who constantly allows their friends to crash on their couch after a night of too much fun.


    Promising review: "Very impressed with this couch, especially for the money! We put it in our Airstream trailer, and it has taken the design to another level. So happy we pulled the trigger on this. I also like the mustard color; unique and funky. It is firm but still comfortable." —William Skiles

    51. A faux fur throw blanket any homebody would be happy to receive — it's just about that time where it's acceptable to hibernate until the sun comes out again in April.


    Promising review: "SUPER soft throw! This throw is so soft and cozy that my whole family fights over it. The color is beautiful and it looks and feels much more expensive than it is. I have other much pricier throws and this one beats the expensive ones in every category. This throw is softer, warmer, bigger, and so much prettier in person. I want one in every color. Based on the way my family is fighting over it I might need one in every color! So far the cat is winning." —Kathy

    52. A cleaning pen to help your newly engaged or simply jewelry-obsessed pal keep their gems sparkling.,

    This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings. Check out my full review of the Connoisseurs 1050 Diamond Dazzle Stick.

    Promising review: "The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new." —FintanCat

    54. A teddy coat you should treat yourself to as a reward for even starting your holiday shopping.


    My best friend and I both picked up this coat last year and have already discussed how excited we are wait to break them out again now that the weather is slowly getting colder. It makes me feel like I'm being enveloped in a warm hug — and who doesn't want that?

    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium and it’s perfect! Super cute, I’ll probably buy another’s in a different color lol." —Brianna

    Promising review: "I have a hard time with statement jewelry because they are typically pretty heavy and I end up having to take them off quickly. These however are very lightweight. I wore them to dinner over the weekend and didn't have any issues with them. They are very cute and went perfectly with my outfit. I would recommend these for a pop of color to any outfit!" —Lindsey Barlow

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99 (available in eight styles).

    56. Gold under-eye collagen masks your buddy can break out for an at-home spa night or whenever they "accidentally" stay up all night bingeing something new on Netflix and need some de-puffing.


    Promising review: "These eye masks are absolutely amazing! I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, as well as slight bags from being a mother of four. Eye creams do absolutely nothing for me, and I gave these a try just on a whim, not really expecting much. But they really work! The results aren't permanent, but I put these on for about an hour in the evening while I relax and watch TV, and my under eyes are much lighter and less puffy. I absolutely love these eye masks, and I will never be without them again." —Kate Johnson

    Promising review: "Love these. I use them for individual cast iron skillet cookies. They make a great presentation, and the best thing is I can cheat and use the refrigerated cookies so its a quick on-hand dessert. With a scoop of ice cream, you are a star." —Cabinlife

    60. A subscription to Atlas Coffee Club to bring aromatic, fresh beans from all over the world right to your caffeine-loving pal's porch.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, atlastcoffeeclub / Via

    My fellow BuzzFeed editor Kayla Suazo tried out Atlas Coffee Club and only had good things to say:

    "My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it's heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. The Peruvian coffee has this dark, almost chocolate taste to it, so I imagine it would be delicious with a morning sweet treat (maybe I should start eating pie every day?). The Colombian batch, on the other hand, was a little lighter roast-wise but still had delicious notes of rich sweetness. TL;DR: both of them were incredible both in taste and quality."
