    the microderm glow machine

    Promising review: "First time I used it and already I see a difference with how my skin feel. Smooth! It's also nice because you're actually saving money on dermabrasion. The device is easy to use and there's also a timer on how long to use it. All you have to do is follow instructions and it only takes a minute. I use it about 2-3 times a week. Highly recommend this!" —Amazon Customer

    5. A dainty opal ring they can stack with ones they already have or wear on its own, guaranteed to quickly become one of their must cherished baubles.

    Local Eclectic is a Latinx-and-female-owned small business with jewelry you won't be able to help but drool over. This ring is stunning, as are the many other items in their store. I've personally got my eye on this trio of galaxy studs, but you should definitely peruse their site to see what catches *your* eye.

    Promising review: "This is a gorgeous ring! It's incredibly dainty and such a beautiful thin band. The opal looks wonderful and is far more beautiful than other, cheaper opal rings I've previously purchased. I was hesitant to buy a ring at a higher price point than what you'd find just mulling around a store (I'm just beginning to have a large interest in rings and have been looking for the right opal ring for nearly a year), but now that i've seen the product I think the price is more than justified. Very happy!" —Lauramaek27

    Get it from Local Eclectic for $45 (available in sizes 6 and 8).

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, Amazon

    BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord has and loves this product, she said:

    "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

    10. A Google Nest they'll love because they can use it to listen to music (kitchen dance party!?), adjust the lights in their home, pause their TV, and ask it questions as if they have a personal assistant.

    the google nest speaker in blue

    My husband was hesitant about getting a device like this in our home, but after an hour he was sold. We have it in our kitchen and *kindly* ask it to play music while we cook and eat, use it to set timers while baking, and ask it funny questions. We love this lil' gadget. We also have a Google Nest Hub by our front door so we always know what's on each other's calendar for the and know what time it is before heading out. We recently bought our first home and have a Google Nest Hub Max that we plan to install to control *all* the things (lights, sounds, etc) a la Disney's Smart House.

    Get it from Google for $99 (available in five colors).

    11. A stack of bracelets featuring amethyst, amazonite, tiger eye, and gray agate stones which are said to boost creativity and patience — they'll love layering these with all their other go-to accessories.

    Get them from TrueWarriorJewelry on Etsy for $67 (available in six lengths).

    12. Ugg's classic ultra mini bootie to keep their feet feeling pampered all day long — they deserve it!

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, ugg / Via

    I recently got these Ugg minis and have been wearing them as my "work shoes" now that I WFH full time. They're the perfect mix between a slipper and an actual shoe, so I can continue to wear my comfiest clothes to "the office" (my kitchen table) but also feel like I've somewhat transitioned into work mode for the day. They're super soft, as all Uggs are, and honestly just make me happy! They are true-to-size so no worries about sizing up or down.

    Promising review: "These are the first pair of Uggs I have ever purchased, and they do not disappoint! I am short (5'0") so the taller classic Uggs have always felt a little awkward or bulky for me. The ultra mini is just what I've been looking for, and I've been wearing them daily (even though it's still hot out). I'm considering a second purchase! Definitely worth every penny!" —Lexi T.

    Get them from Zappos for $139.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    13. A dip powder kit so they can perfect their at-home manicure (and hopefully learn to give you one, too!).,

    It comes with a base coat, an activator, a top coat, five color powders, a nail file, a brush, and instructions.

    Promising review: "I have been wanting a nail dip powder set for so long, and I am so glad that I finally stumbled upon one that was affordable and had everything that I need for salon quality nails at home. The whole process from start to finish took me about 25 minutes. The instructions have pictures and are very easy to follow. The whole kit just feels so luxurious, I cannot recommend it enough. This would definitely make for a great gift." —Eve Ette

    Get it from Amazon for $32.97.

    Uncommon Goods

    This kit includes sweet rice flour, potato starch, matcha green tea powder, cocoa powder, a dough cutter, a silicone mochi mold, and step-by-step instructions. It makes up to 32 pieces.

    Promising review: "My friend's daughter had to have her graduation party via Zoom this year. Mochi is their favorite, so I thought this would be a great kindergarten graduation gift. It was a huge hit! They had so much fun making them and at the end they said it tasted just like 'real mochi' :). True praise from a 5- and 7-year-old!" —Kim

    15. A customizable standing desk for your partner's home office so maybe (just maybe) you won't have to hear them complain about how stiff their body feels after working all day.

    an all white standing desk

    Use the code XMAS50 to get $50 off at checkout.

    Promising review: "This desk has helped me so much with posture over the last few weeks. It's so nice to be able to easily stand throughout the day and the settings for my desired height make it easy to get the ergonomics I need to work effectively and reduce pain from sitting all day long. I would recommend having a power drill on hand when doing the setup to be able to install a few of the pieces. It helps cut the install time down significantly and makes your life easier. Also recommend two people for the setup but the instructions are great and it is super sturdy and easy to use. Highly recommend." —Denise Louw

    Get it from FlexiSpot for $249.99 (originally $309.99, available in three frame colors and four desktop colors).

    16. A bluetooth powered Polar Express train from Lionel that'll truly bring the spirit of Christmas into their home and leave them wide-eyed and filled with joy as they watch it circle around their tree.

    the train

    I have this train and cannot wait to set it up — it looks just like the one from the film (which is one of my all time favorite holiday movies). It has a working headlight, puffing smoke, can go forward and reverse, has a real working whistle and bell, and plays clips of sound from the movie. I can only imagine how proud Tom Hanks would be to see this in anyone's home.

    Get it from Target for $305.99.

    17. A silicone cat egg mold that's purr-fect for any foodie whose been looking to bring a little more fun to their breakfast routine.

    A classic reel viewer with reels featuring custom photos

    Promising review: "I bought two of these to give as gifts to my mom and to my best friend. For my mom I filled the reel with pictures from her life leading up to her granddaughter being born! She absolutely loved it. My best friend recently lost her father so I made a reel in memory of him and she loved it! And it's great that once you have the viewer you can order as many reels as you want!" —Lauren

    Promising review: "I wanted to find some ways to get to know my boyfriend better as I’ve asked every question I could possible think of, LOL. I didn’t look at a single card before we played and it really helped further strengthen our relationship. The different categories make sure you leave no part of your significant others life unturned! I highly recommend!" —Braxton

    23. A rechargeable hand warmer complete with double-sided heat and three different heat settings they can adjust to their environment, a must-have for the person in your life who is *always* freezing (you know who you are).


    Psst — this is USB rechargeable, and you can even use a power bank or your phone to charge it!

    Promising review: "This hand warmer is amazing! My hands are constantly cold and I've tried all sorts of products to help keep them warm but nothing has worked until now. I charge the hand warmer every night with a standard USB charger and the next day, I have hours of warmth. The three temperature settings are very helpful — I use the highest setting when I'm outdoors for long periods of time and the lower settings when I'm indoors (e.g. sitting at my desk or in a cold movie theater). I've already given hand warmers as gifts to several cold-handed friends and family members and they're loving it as well. I hope Ocoopa comes out with a foot warmer next!" —Riva Kupritz

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite T-shirt. First time wearing it out, I received so many compliments. When ordering, I really didn’t know what to expect from the sizing, but after reading the reviews I decided to choose an extra large due to everyone saying it was kind of crop-toppy, which is very true." —Sarah DaVitte

    28. Friends: The Complete Series on DVD, because they're still in mourning that the show was removed from Netflix and have been too lazy to set up a new subscription for HBO Max.

    the series on blu-ray

    The DVD version has lots of extra bonus content!

    Promising review: "At first, I was pretty skeptical on which 25th Anniversary set I wanted to purchase. The cheaper DVD set, that had more content and less picture quality... or the more expensive, (almost twice the price), edited Blu-ray version with better picture quality, but less content. I was on the verge of buying the Blu-ray set until checkout. Realizing that I would be paying twice the amount just for better picture quality, I talked myself out of it. So I went ahead and purchased the DVD set instead for half the price, and man I am SO GLAD I did. The picture quality really isn't all that bad. I mean, the show did come out in the '90s, might as well get that nostalgic '90s feel when you watch it! If you do have a bigger sized TV, there will be black bars on the sides of the screen, but honestly it doesn't get too in the way of the enjoyment. And if it does, you can edit the ratio settings on your TV." —Dylan

    Get it from Amazon for $50.

    29. A set of gourmet biscotti they can dip into tea or coffee for breakfast or dessert — a socially acceptable cookie to eat at any time of day, if you ask me

    the set in a gift box

    Promising review: "I bought my first box as a gift for Christmas and couldn't handle them sitting there so I opened it and shared with the family. These are absolutely AMAZING! Two of a different kind and I give them all a thumbs up that's how delicious they are!!! These are not so hard that you might break your teeth but yet there is a scrumptious crunch to each bite. So I bought another box to hopefully give away for Christmas! I'll have to really hide this one!" —JoAnn

    Promising review: "Wow! I purchased this on a whim after seeing one of my favorite YouTubers try it out. I didn't expect a lot from it. I tried it out and was shocked!!! The mask was simple (and fun) to use. I wasn't sure I felt a lot happening while it was on, but it was pretty cool how the bubbles started to grow off of my face. Upon inspection after using this mask I was completely amazed. My face felt cleaner than it has in a very long time AND my pores looked amazing! I don't remember a time when I felt like my pores looked great before using this mask. I would highly recommend this mask to anyone. It's also so much cheaper than the GlamGlow ones I have been using (and didn't see near these results from)." —K. Textor

    Get it from Amazon for $9.70.

    32. A subscription box of treats from Japan for anyone who has been there and experienced the perfection of their snacks IRL or has been hoping to venture there soon.

They don't take on water like a lot of other bath toys. They are soft as well so there is no chance of getting hurt if baby tosses them around or puts them in his mouth. Great buy!" —Marissa A.

    42. A pair of Blundstone boots that are weatherproof so they can wear them in the midst of slushy winter weather *and* a rainy spring day.

    Promising review: "I was a bit suspicious of the hype around there, but decided to try them after all. I needed a pair of everyday fall-winter-spring boots, so I liked the idea of extra lining because my feet are always cold. I do find them surprisingly warm. Also very comfortable, and no stress on my back or knees at all. I think if you live in a warmer climate or want more of a year-round boot, I would go with the unlined 500 version, but for me, this is precisely the kind of boot I needed. We'll see how they hold up, but so far I like them a lot." —D. West

It's also big enough for me and him to sit on outside so no itchy grass! And the hedgehogs are to perfect for my little hedgehog guy!" —Ashe W.

    This is designed with pre-painted laser-cut pieces. Each piece is numbered, so you can confidently work your way through every wheel and cog. Once finished, you'll have a beautiful, hand-cranked music box.

    Promising review: "I got this for myself because I was curious about the difficulty. All in all it took me six hours and a bottle of wine to put it together. The wine may have made it take longer. The directions were super easy to follow and the pieces are wood and fit together perfectly. What threw me off was the quality of the music box. It is so much better than I expected! The sound is absolutely beautiful!!!! Once I had it all together and saw the motion with the tune I am in love with this!!! I definitely recommend this product." —Nicole Petriskie

Each one is made by hand and love (obviously). If I were to receive this as a gift I'd be more than thrilled to be handed the photo of Diana wearing it and a "coming soon" note.

    55. A face wash foamer they can use to make the cleanser they're already accustomed to feel extra fancy.

    The pink container with a pump top to fluff the cleanser and foamed up cleanser all around it

    Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —Knock Knock Me

    56. A double-sided Revlon liquid eyeshadow that'll appease anyone in your life who is indecisive when it comes to putting their *a look* for the day — this will let them opt for a shimmery or super pigmented option at any time.,

    Promising review: "I ordered this after seeing one of my favorite Youtubers using it in a tutorial and seeing how pretty it looked on her. I have to say, I'm so happy I ordered it. I've never been a fan of cream shadows because they can be tough to work with and are often a creasy mess, but this one is not that way. It is easy to apply and the cream shadow dries down completely and doesn't crease or feel heavy on the lid. Also, I've never had any fall out from the glitter throughout the day. Once it dries down, the glitter stays in place. I'm very happy with my purchase and plan to order several more in different shades." —K Nichole
