    EcualyptusBlooms / Etsy

    I've personally hung up a bundle eucalyptus branches in my shower and can confirm it really is a game changer — it makes every shower experience feel refreshing.

    2. An "Among Us" composition book you can suggest to your gamer buddies to pay tribute to the time you murdered them in cold blood when you were the imposter — this is a shout-out to my husband who BETRAYED ME in front of all of our friends. The nerve, amiright?

    a reviewer's notebook with among us avatars all over it

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my little brother's 13th birthday and he loved it! Considering he's a teen now and is very picky with presents, he said it was for sure one of his faves! LOL. The printing is very nice and not blurry at all, love the feel of the notebook as well. Very well-made! Buy it now!" —Melissa Elias

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    One of my coworkers purchased this four-pack and was kind enough to share with the rest of us! I love how easy this headband makes it to make a fashion statement without taking up too much time in the morning — and I was able to wear it all day without getting a headache!

    Promising review: "I live in headbands as a stay-at-home mom with two small kiddos. They make your messy bun actually look like you're decent-looking and like you got yourself together 😂 definitely a great pack for cheap. They are made very well, great quality!" —Misty Flota

    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

    6. A set of adjustable dumbbells in a fun color, perfect for anyone who is just starting to incorporate weights into their workout and doesn't want to accidentally hurt themselves in public.,

    I may or may not have popped a rib out of place two years ago while experimenting with weight machines at the gym. So, please, take my advice and start slow with a basic dumbbell set at home.

    Promising review: "I had been looking at these weights for a while. I wanted something adjustable because I don't have the room for much. One side of each handle has one big weight and eight small ones. You can add or take away whatever you want and they don't flop or slide around. I haven't weighted them but I think you can definitely make more weight combinations than they listed. Well worth the money!" —ErinR

    7. A chic faux leather belt to act as the finishing touch on every outfit that just seems to be missing *something*.,

    8. A bookmark book tracker that'll motivate them to actually settle down and read the novel their book club decided on for this month. After they finish a book they can add the title into the spine on the bookmark and color it in — adorable.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.20.

    12. A delicate floral iPhone 11 case that'll make every day feel as fresh as the first day of spring while also keeping their device protected.,

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors and for iPhone 11).

    13. A bicycle-inspired pizza cutter you should probably invest in if they religiously order a pie or two every weekend (ahem, me).


    I have this pizza cutter and while I could've easily gotten a standard one to do the same job, this one brings me joy *and* works well. Can't ask for much more than that!

    Promising review: "So cute and beautiful at the same time!! Sharp and cut the pizza like butter. Bought as a gift and will definitely buy again!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.88.

    14. A jewelry cleaning pen to revive any gem they've got and leave it *so* sparkly their roomie will exclaim, "MY EYYEEEES" when they look at it.


    My best friend introduced me to this miracle-worker of a product (ON HER WEDDING DAY!) and I feel compelled to share it with the world. I swear, it's that good. And over 19.3K Amazon customers gave it a 5-star review and agree. I quickly bought my own Diamond Dazzle Stik and never looked back! It keeps my engagement ring and wedding band (in addition to all my other pieces of jewelry) sparkling like the day I got them. I've even used it on cubic zirconia studs to spiff 'em up a little. All you have to do is wet the tip, twist the back of the pen, scrub your gem, and rinse 'em all off (PLEASE KEEP YOUR DRAIN CLOSED). This pen is a game-changer and is my go-to gift for any newly engaged couple.

    Promising review: "I read a lot of Buzzfeed Shopping, because I have to admit that I am an Amazon shopaholic, and they have the best suggestions ever. Anyways, I always encounter this product on almost every article, and I thought that this is just overrated. But, heck, did I have one of the most **dazzling** surprises of my life. This little pen is a game-changer. I followed the instructions on the label, and as I was rinsing my ring under the tap, I just have to gasp. My engagement ring is new; just a little more than 6 months old but oh the shine. You can really see the difference. How did I live before this stick?!?" —ErikaCH

    Get it from Amazon for $6.96.

    Check out my full Diamond Dazzle Stik review here.

    15. A candle with a minimalist design that'll look great in their living room, give any guests a clear message not to over-stay their welcome, and make their room smell absolutely divine. 10/10 purchase, IMO.

    SaltedBurns is a woman-owned small business based out of Florida. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Rebecca Taylor, the owner, and she is absolutely lovely.

I have this candle and can't wait to light it up, as I've already finished burning my "Always Social Distancing" one.

    Get it from SaltedBurns on Etsy for $18 (available in eight scents).

    16. Retro heart-shaped sunnies sure to have even your most stylish friend saying "wow, these are fabulous!"

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed,

    One of my friends actually bought a pair of these for her entire bachelorette party a few years ago. We all have very different face shapes and they were shockingly flattering on every last one of us!

    Promising review: "Constantly asked if these are YSL sunglasses. You can tell they’re cheaper when handling but apparently no one else notices when they’re on. Highly recommend, especially if you’re someone who loses or breaks your sunglasses easily." —Katie K.

    Get them from Amazon for $10.91+ (available in 17 styles).

    17. Leopard print makeup brushes they'll want to snatch out from under all that pesky Easter grass and put to work right away.

    19. Rain boots to keep their tootsies dry during all of those April showers and have them checking the weather app for the next storm (so they can jump in puddles, of course)., Amazon

    Promising review: "I got these boots right before leaving on a three week vacation to Scotland and London. I didn't want to bring big heavy boots in my bag so I got these. They are pretty lightweight and very comfortable. I put an insole in to help with the cobblestone streets but I was able to wear them comfortably through long days of walking." —epop86

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in women's sizes 4.5–12 and 14 styles).

    20. An exfoliating body scrub and body wash that'll leave their skin silky, smooth, and refreshed while looking absolutely lovely in your Easter basket. Floral packaging for spring!? Groundbreaking.

    lovebeautyandplanet / Via, Amazon

    I'm a sucker for anything made by Love, Beauty and Planet, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to try out this body scrub in my shower. This product is infused with organic coconut oil and Bulgarian roses. It smells AMAZING and leaves my body feeling like velvet — definitely a luxurious add-on for any shower experience. Then I'll top off the whole experience by covering myself in the equally-lovely lotion. Can't beat it!

    Promising review: "Loved this scrub and wash combo! I used both during baths and it felt super luxurious. The scrub is gritty but not TOO tough on your skin, and the wash has a silky smooth consistency. The scent is beautiful and rosy, pretty strong (which I like, what’s the point of soap if it isn’t strong?) Would def purchase again!" —carmavilla

    Get them from Amazon for $14.49.

    21. A belt bag, compact enough to fit in an Easter basket but sturdy enough to carry all of their odds 'n' ends during their next outing.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this bag, great quality, durable, and looks great. Very stylish and doesn’t look cheap. I was scared that the belt part would be flimsy but it is thick and durable just like the bag. Love it! Quick and easy to throw on and accessorize your outfit." —R_Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $17.89 (available in 18 styles).

    22. A magnetic key holder for anyone who typically lives with their head in the clouds and therefore can *never* recall where they left their keys.

    A minimalist cloud magnet tacked to a wall holding two sets of car keys

    Promising review: "This is the cutest way to hold keys ever! And it was mad easy to install: peel and stick. I don’t know how I ever survived just using a hook instead of this cute magnet cloud. Excellent housewarming gift too. I now take it with wine as a gift for any friends/family moving." —Clemmie C.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

Very pleasant and satisfying shape aesthetically! Large power-on, volume, and pairing up buttons on the right underside and adorable blue indicator light on the left. It’s easy to pair with a phone and a laptop by Bluetooth. The sound is incredible for such a small device! Plus the built-in mic is great for using at home or in the car. It’s very convenient to charge by using a micro USB. I’m pleased with my purchase and would recommend to my friends." —Olivia

    Get it from Amazon for $18.89+ (available in six colors).

    29. A dip powder kit they can use to save TONS of dollars on fancy manis without giving up the joy they feel after getting a long lasting, high-quality manicure.,

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

    Promising review: "This product is great! As someone who is CONSTANTLY getting their nails done (dipping powder) at salons, it has been hard to do so because of COVID-19. I was looking for an inexpensive kit with neutral colors that I could use. This starter kit has been an absolute lifesaver during these unprecedented times. It is so easy to use! I finished off my nails with a gel top coat and cured it under the UV light that I had from a while ago (I attached a photo on the right). Overall it's an amazing product — very satisfied!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98.

    30. A bottle of Truff truffle-infused hot sauce they'll probably want to start planning your meals around — it's THAT good.

    BuzzFeed / Hannah Loewentheil

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    32. A lemon squeezer they can use to literally live out the old saying "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Just picture them sipping on a freshly squeezed glass while basking in the sun. Simply divine.

    a yellow and green lemon squeezer

    My mom got one of these and continues to rave about it to me each time she uses it. I wasn't sure what all the hype was about until I watched how easily she was able to squeeze a slew of lemons for a recipe she was working on. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    Promising review: "This thing changed my life! We have a very high yielding lemon tree and I dreaded the though of hand squeezing hundreds of lemons this year. This tool makes it effortless to get all the juice out of citrus. I ordered one for my mom who has arthritis in her wrists and she loves it too." —Amazon Customer

    33. A universal nail polish bottle handle from Olive & June they'll want if they love doing their own nails but are forever struggling to do their opposite hand as beautifully as the dominant one.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    I've been doing my own nails for a long, long time. It always seemed smarter to me to spend money on a bottle of polish I can keep instead of a manicure that only lasts a week. It's a skill that took a while to work on but, luckily, for at-home manicurists like myself The Poppy has made doing my nails a lot less challenging. It pops right onto any bottle of nail polish (not just Olive & June colors) and provides you with a stronger grip and a more accurate swipe.

    Get it from Olive and June or Target for $16.

    Check out our full Olive & June review here.

    Promising review: "This cup is perfect! The aesthetic is exactly as advertised and the tumbler looks and feels very high quality. It's easy to clean and the lid suctions on nicely so more spills are prevented. I use this everyday for my iced coffee and it keeps it nice and cool throughout the morning. Especially for the price you pay, this cup is a great deal!" —Maddie Bangz

    Get it from Amazon for $13.59+ (available in 40 colors).

    35. A wineglass holder for anyone who loves nothing more than unwinding after a long stressful day while sipping on their favorite drink and washing their hair at the same time.,

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my wife. She loves to occasionally have a glass of wine when she soaks in the bathtub after a hard day. She loved it. It has plenty of suction to be very secure. Works great." —J. C. C.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    36. A silicone pan that'll make it possible to create cake bites, chocolates, or ice cubes shaped like recognizable Disney Parks icons.

    Get it from shopDisney for $34.99.

    37. A smol egg beater from OXO to ensure their omelet comes out nice 'n' fluffy but also be their saving grace when they're whipping up an individual dessert or Dalgona coffee and don't want to be bothered with a full-size hand mixer. It's just s'cute.

    a model using the handheld egg beater

    Promising review: "We live off-grid so we don’t like having a bunch of power-sucking kitchen appliances but we like to cook and needed something more powerful than a hand whisk. Amazed that we were able to make whipped cream with this. Everything pops off to make cleaning easier. Handle is comfortable and operation is pretty smooth and not too difficult." —Joi maree freeman

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.
