1. A mystical colorant that'll transform your loved one's fireplace into one seemingly filled with magic and dancing colors — who wouldn't want that?

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "Love these, have purchased a few times and will now buy the 50-pack because they really add a ton of fun to my bonfires. Depending on how much your fire is raging they will last 30–60 minutes. I use two to three packets at a time. Highly recommend." —JAO

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get six packets from Amazon for $6.42.

2. The Book with No Pictures by The Office's own B.J. Novak that'll leave you and your mini-me giggling past their bedtime.

Amazon

The book is recommended for ages 5–8.

Promising review: "Our 4-year-old is always pestering us to 'let me see the pictures' of her books every night, making storytime drag on forever, so I thought this would be great to chill her out at bedtime. NOT! She laughs so hard she gets the hiccups and has tears rolling down her face by the time we're two thirds through the book! What a perfect idea!" —Straight Outta the Suburbs

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $8.64.

3. A squat machine to help them target the three main muscles in their butt. "Bootylicious" is about to become their theme song.

The DB Method, thedbmethod / Via instagram.com

The DB Method is a woman-owned company and has become quite popular among celebs like Tracee Ellis Ross, the Kardashians, and Hailey Bieber (which is enough reason for me to give it a test run). It'll help you strengthen your center of gravity and, IMO, is quite budget friendly in comparison to most other home workout equipment.

Promising review: "I am so happy I made the decision to buy a DB Method. I've been using it for the past two weeks at least 10 minutes daily and I can see a difference in my abs, arms, legs and butt! A great full body workout! You will not be disappointed with this purchase! Go for it." —Cleo B.

Shipping info: Orders typically ship within 5 to 14 days.

Get it from The DB Method for $329 (including free shipping and a phone stand to follow videos on their app).

4. Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which will turn your home into a real-life race course for Mario, Luigi, and the rest of the classic gang.

Target

Your kiddo will need a Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite to play this game — and it's rated for ages "E for everyone." Essentially, this game uses artificial intelligence (and an actual remote car with a camera attached to it) to bring the classic game of Mario Kart to life in your home. I've personally tried it out and it is unbelievably cool and very fun. You can change the tracks over and over for new experiences each time. My favorite part is that when you run the race on your Nintendo Switch you actually feel like you're watching Luigi race through YOUR home!

Promising review: "Awesome toy, kids will love it. Great quality and use, one of the far coolest Nintendo has made." —Luigi

Shipping info: Most packages will deliver within one to two days of the estimated delivery date. If you are a Red Card member you will receive free two-day shipping. Check out details on all holiday shipping information here.

Get it from Target for $90.99.

5. A Baby Yoda night-light that, for lack of a better term, can become their *guiding light* as they make their way through the hallway in the middle of the night when they'll inevitably have to pee.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

I am admittedly obsessed with "The Child" and can't get enough of him — that includes letting him reign over my bathroom at night in the form of the night-light.

Promising review: "So cute and I love that it turns on when it senses it is dark. Would also make a cute gift! Could be brighter, but it is perfect for what I was looking for and adds fun to my home." —Julie

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $7.48.

6. A rechargeable lighter that'll let them light every candle in their house to create the *perfect* ambience without concern they'll run out of lighter fluid.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super-fun gadget. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again.

Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super-minor annoyance. It's a super-intuitive device. Plug the lighter in with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

7. Ugg Classic Ultra Mini bootie to keep their feet feeling pampered all day long — they deserve it!

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, ugg / Via instagram.com

I got these Ugg Minis last year and have been wearing them as my "work shoes" while working from home. 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 guest room) 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 most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They are so cozy warm. Not bulky. I can go for walks or just lounge around the house in them. Having to be at home all the time these days during the pandemic, I wanted shoes that felt like a slipper but give more support. And they aren't weighing me down like the taller Ugg boots. I will wear these everywhere...in every season. Thank you, Ugg!" —Amy Del Santo

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $139.95+ (available in women's sizes 5–12 and six colors).

Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

8. A gourmet tower of treats for the foodie in your life — their mouth will be on the floor (and probably full of drool) when they get to feast their eyes on this gift.

gold stacked boxes filled with delicious snacks
Gift Tree

This set comes with churro almonds, Wisconsin white cheddar popcorn, Lindt and Lindor gourmet chocolates, and double-chocolate brownie cookies. 

You can save up to $50 on your order with our code AFFGTBUZZFEED21.

Promising review: "I ordered one of the gourmet towers for a friend's belated birthday. She was so excited when it arrived. The boxes were arranged beautifully. She sent me a picture and the arrangement looked just like the picture on the website. The snacks were fresh and tasty. This is my second time ordering. Very pleased" —Birthday Girl

Shipping info: Standard shipping applies, but same day delivery is available for an additional cost.

Get it from Gift Tree for $69.95.

9. A "Stolen Hoodie" scented candle you can likely play off as an inside joke and definitely make your S.O. smile each time they light it.

a candle with a label that says "stolen hoodie good luck getting this back from me"
Evil Queen

That hoodie you borrowed from them with zero intention of ever returning? Yeah, that's the one. We've all been there. ;) They are sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness of this gift and how good it smells. When I tell you I am wholeheartedly committed to this candle brand I mean it. I was first introduced to them when I discovered their "OMG You're Engaged" candle in a boutique near by NYC apartment a few years ago. I've been gifting them to everyone I know (and myself) since. This small business is woman-owned by an absolute badass who also writes poetry.

Shipping info: Orders are typically shipped within one to three business days.

Get it from Evil Queen for $22.

10. A love language card game to pop into your partner's stocking, perfect for anyone whether you've just started dating *or* known each other forever.

Amazon

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

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

11. 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).

Amazon

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

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in eight colors).

12. A s'mores-themed ChapStick collection that'll keep their pout super soft and give you an extra reason to ~give 'em some sugar~.

A chapstick case with milk chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker flavored chapsticks
Amazon

Each set comes with three flavors: a Milk Chocolate, a Marshmallow, and a Graham Cracker flavor.

Promising review: "My mom and I are ChapStick fans, so I bought us each a pack of these. The marshmallow is clear, the chocolate is brown, and the graham cracker is tan. The color isn’t too extreme, but it will leave a little bit of tint on your lips. The flavors are DELICIOUS. Graham cracker reminds me of Golden Grahams cereal and chocolate is just perfect. I love the marshmallow best because it tastes slightly toasted." —Elle Ardee

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

13. A gold necklace with a charm inspired by modernist French sculptures, but more importantly was worn by Taylor Swift in this now iconic TikTok about fall. Any fan would delightfully appreciate this Easter egg of a gift.

Taylor Swift / Awe Inspired

I have a few necklaces from this mother-and-son-owned company, and now this one is on my must-buy list. Each piece I own is sturdy but somehow still feels delicate. I love the way I can layer them with other necklaces I already own. 20% of all proceeds of this style will go to help women in need. The brand has hand selected an array of charities, such as The American Nurses Foundation, CancerCare, the NAACP, The National Alliance on Mental Illness, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network,  Emily's List, and The Trevor Project, that they donate to on a rotating cycle. Additionally, the  jewelry is manufactured in Minneapolis, Miami, New York, and abroad in Italy, Istanbul, and Bangkok.

Shipping info: Orders should arrive within 7–10 business days, but you can also upgrade to two-day or overnight shipping.

Get it from Awe Inspired for $170+ (available in silver).

14. A customized Starbucks cup that'll let them combine their obsessions with Disney and caffeine into one glittering tumbler.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, For The Love Of Pixie Dust

Anyone who frequents the Disney Parks is familiar with the many Starbucks located around the property. The cups they use there are super cute and you can often have your name written (correctly!) with a Mickey or Minnie next to it. Carry that kind of magic around with you no matter where you are by purchasing this spectacular tumbler! You can even request a character of your choice to make it extra special. I have a bunch of these (there's so many cute designs) and def suggest you snag your own. For the Love of Pixie Dust is a woman-owned small business based out of New Jersey.

Shipping info: Ready-to-ship items ship between 7–14 business days.

Get it from For the Love of Pixie Dust for $21.

15. The Wand, a handheld filter designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. This lil' gadget will have them singing out "blesssss my souuuuul" like one of the Muses from Hercules.

Amazon

Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you, PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get a three-pack from Amazon for $12.99.

16. A Wreck This Journal can encourage them to get more in touch with their artistic side, great if you've they've been intimidated by trying to fill out the blank pages of boring old regular journals. This journal may not start out as a personalized item, but it'll certainly be one when they're done with it.

amazon.com

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 love that it’s full of bizarre prompts but that you have wiggle room if you don’t want to do anything too crazy. 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

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

17. Snowflake earrings to bring a touch of sparkle and holiday magic to their jewelry lineup.

Promising review: "Delish! Wish I had tried them earlier, before I had already bought gifts. These are so yummy and rich, you can almost use one for two cups of cocoa. I will likely get these again next year for sweet treats and holiday gifts." —Jane Mitchell

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

I received this package and thought it was the coolest thing ever! It comes with a very formal certificate stating your name, your new "title" and exactly where your land is located. It's even encouraged that someday you come and visit it! So fun.

Get land in Scotland from Highland Titles or land in Ireland from Celctic Titles for $45+ (available in 1 square foot up to 100 square feet).

21. A Dyson Corrale straightener that'll make them never want to use another brand's again — it can be used for 30 minutes without a cord, has flexible plates, and chimes to let you know when it's done heating up.

dysonhair / Via instagram.com, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

I was gifted this magnificent straightener and, boy, do I consider myself lucky. This is a gadget I typically wouldn't have splurged on, but after getting to try it out first hand I'd like to eat the words I just typed. This thing is AWESOME. It has its own stand so you don't have to worry about placing it down on an inappropriate surface (ahem, your bedroom carpet) while sectioning off the next part of your hair. It also heats up faster than it takes to watch a TikTok video — legit like SECONDS. It's very lightweight and straightens my hair in half the time it usually takes and can be used without a cord! It really is an incredible gadget that is worth every penny.

Promising review: "I am 38 years old and I've finally found the one! By the one I mean the ONLY hair straightener in the world that delivers salon quality results at home. For the first time in my life, I can stop going to the salon once a week to get my hair done, and actually make it look amazing by myself. Hats off to the whole Dyson team for inventing this hair tool, I'm a guaranteed lifer. This is also the first time in my life any product has impressed me so much that I took the time to do a review, I'm just so excited to finally be able to my hair at home and have it look absolutely professional. Thank you Dyson!" —MaggieMo82

Shipping info: Standard shipping is four to 10 business days, but you can also upgrade to Expedited shipping, Premium shipping, or Same Day Delivery.

Get it from Ulta for $499.99.

Levi's

Promising review: "Love this jacket and can’t wait to wear in the cold weather. I’m usually a medium so I ordered both medium and large — the medium fit too tight and the large was perfect. I would say to size up" —Marisela

Get it from Levi's for $87.98+ (available in women's sizes XS–XL and four colors, and 1X–4X).

25. A carbonated bubble clay mask that starts to bubble once it's applied — get one for you and each of your roomies and prepare for a fun night of selfies (all the while banishing your blackheads).

Amazon, amazon.com

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

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $10.60.

26. A milk frother to pack a powerful, spinning punch despite looking rather delicate. It'll help transform their at-home coffee into one worthy of an actual spot on their 'gram (seriously, a fleeting IG story simply won't do it justice!).

amazon.com, amazon.com

I invested in one of these last year and I'm so glad I did — I use it to make lattes at home and have saved a lot of dollars without having to run out to Starbucks every morning (just...once a week or so instead hehe).

Promising review: "OMG, this milk frother makes my homemade latte taste like it was made by a barista. It was perfect. So perfect that I bought a second one for my brother who loves coffee to use. I've already recommended it to some coworkers. It has changed my coffee-drinking life. This comes highly recommended." —Michelle Pirestani

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 17 colors).

The Jeopardy trivia book.
Amazon

Promising review: "I'm normally bored by crosswords and word-search puzzles after a short time, but these have a twist in that you have to answer five Jeopardy-type questions in order to get all the clues for the puzzles. And they aren't necessarily easy, although if you don't know the answer, you can generally figure it out. I have enjoyed a number of the Brain Games series, and this is one of the best." —Ginger Russell

We've all been there — making our coffee or tea only to set it down and forget about it until it's cooled down completely. Thanks to this mug warmer none of us ever have to suffer through another cold cup of caffeine again!

Promising review: "I'm a chronic coffee forgetter. I can't drink it straight from the brewer (too hot for me) so I set my mug down to cool slightly and often get distracted. Of course I then come back to my coffee to find it's already cold. I've currently got the warmer at my office and it's working great. I can sip my coffee leisurely over the course of an hour and it's still nice and warm." —Elle

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

Promising review: "This poster is stunning. We of course hung it in our kitchen. I framed it in a Craig Frames 24"x36" frame and it looks perfect. There is SO MUCH DETAIL to the many pictures and all the text (and all the TEXT IS READABLE!). Plus, it has multiple versions of the spices, like in ground or granulated form in addition to its natural form. Love that it has some of the most famous spice blends like curry, garam masala, Chinese five spice, herbes de Provence, and pickling spices. This is such a great centerpiece of art for a kitchen. People will love to comment on it and ask questions about it as well as just look at it for a long time." —Roderick Rinehart

Each sheet of soap produces enough soap to give the comfort of knowing your hands are throughly clean.
