    1. A Nightmare Before Christmas mini cross-stitch kit for your crafty friend who would love nothing more than to *live like Jack and Sally* and take a mental break from their real life.

    the cross stitch set
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great kit perfect for any cross stitch or Nightmare Before Christmas fan. It contains a booklet with instructions and four patterns, the needed thread, three pieces of canvas, the holder and two needles. It's a really awesome set. The instructions were easy to follow, and I managed to already finish one of the designs." —witchykitty39

    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 $7.07.

    2. 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 filled with stress-evaporating giggles (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.

    3. A Wreck This Journal to 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.

    4. 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

    5. A mug warmer, because every day is a little bit brighter when it includes a hot cup of coffee rather than a lukewarm one.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    We've all been there — making our coffee or tea only to set it down and forget about 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

    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 $4.20.

    6. How To Bake, a cookbook from The Great British Baking Show's Paul Hollywood to encourage your buddy to take a break from thinking about whatever is stressing them out to bake something delicious.

    The cover of the book
    Bloomsbury Publishing

    Reviewers agree that the instructions are clear, photos with *each* recipe are super helpful, and the step-by-step instructions helped them get amazing results on their first try.

    Since he's British, the book uses metric measurements (and weighing ingredients is really better for precise baking!) so you might also want to get a handy kitchen scale if you don't have one. You can get a top-rated one from Amazon for $9.98.

    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 $21.99.

    7. A three-wick candle from Bath & Body Works featuring their favorite seasonal scent, guaranteed to make them smile from ear-to-ear.

    three holiday-themed three-wick candles
    Bath and Body Works

    I am a loooong-time fan of Bath & Body Works and have been treating myself to their seasonal candles for as long as I can remember — so why would this year be any different? I love getting them for all the people in my life. It's an easy gift that everyone enjoys, and BBW has *so* many scents to choose from it's all too easy to find one that everyone on your list enjoys. I also love how pretty the holiday jars look, especially when they're lit.

    Shipping info: Standard shipping orders will ship in three to seven business days. You can also upgrade to expedited or overnight shipping.

    Get it from Bath & Body Works for $25.50 (available in 176 scents).

    8. A 10-motor massage mat with a lumbar area that can heat up to 140 degrees in less than eight minutes! It has three vibration intensity levels to choose from... you honestly might want to keep this one for yourself.

    Person laying on padded massage mat that's slightly larger than a yoga mat. It has a connected remote.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very easy to use! I like the versatility of the zone settings and varying intensities. The cushioning is quite nice. I lay it down into my La-Z-Boy recliner and it is very relaxing!" —Donna Shreve

    9. An inexpensive cold brew maker — a must-have for your stressed-out BFF who'll really appreciate having a pick-me-up on hand.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Start saving your hard-earned dollars and make your own iced coffee at home! Thanks to this amazing iced cold brew maker from Takeya, you can easily sip on your favorite drink without breaking the bank.

    Promising review: "This coffee maker is my BEST FRIEND! I use this every day, it's so easy to use! My coffee comes out perfect every time. I'm a cold coffee drinker and I put about 8 to10 scoops of freshly ground coffee into the filter. I let it sit overnight and the next morning, I remove the filter and dump the grounds. It makes 4 days worth of coffee and I love that it's ready to go for me, especially since I wake up at 4:50 a.m. and I need to make my coffee quickly! It's very easy to clean as well. Make sure to remove the rubber linings inside the caps so that you can clean in the crevices. I would recommend rinsing the filter thoroughly as soon as you remove the coffee grounds. If you don't, the gentle filter will begin to 'stain' and be hard to wash by hand. If that happens, just throw it in the dishwasher and it comes out good as new!" —Panda

    10. A Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush to remove any unnecessary stress from their morning routine (even if they're just trying to make a nice impression on a video call).

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "For background: I do not have hairstyling experience, neither have I blown dried my hair, and my hair looks like I went to the hair salon. Like many people I read the comments before buying, however after trying it, the comments honestly don’t give this product enough justice. I have curly hair and I’ve seen professional mess up when blow drying my hair, but with this product I was shocked! I wish I took a before picture but I added one with my curly hair for comparison." —Elizabet

    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 $34.88+ (available in five styles).

    If you've tried barrel-shaped hot air brushes before without success and have tighter curls or coils, you may want to try the paddle brush version, which reviewers with 3A–4C hair swear by.

    11. A tabletop fireplace with removable glass so they can enjoy a freshly made s'more any time of year and zone out peacefully while watching the soothing flames dance.

    The small tabletop fireplace with rocks and a small flame
    One Man Garage / Etsy

    You can order this with or without the sand and rocks. The only thing that you will need to purchase separately is the 2.6-oz. gel fuel cans, which you can get from Amazon. 1Man1Garage is a small business based out of Nashville, Tennessee.

    Promising review: "Absolutely wonderful! It’s a great little addition to our patio and we decided to use Sterno so we can roast marshmallows! We love the craftsmanship on it and think it is well made! Perfect!!!" —Andrea Lavender

    Shipping info: Orders ship within two to four days of your order being placed, however you can also add a "Fast Pass" to ensure next-day shipping.

    Get it from 1Man1Garage on Etsy for $24.

    12. A subscription to Book of the Month because there are few things as soothing to a bibliophile as cracking open a hardcover book. Mmm I can smell the freshly printed pages already.

    a stack of books
    Book of the Month

    I was gifted a year of Book of the Month for my birthday one year and to date it is one of the best things I've received. There are few things as satisfying as getting truly lost in the pages of a good book — and it'll provide for a great distraction for the mind if your pal has recently been watching something super scary (ahem, the news). Each month they'll be permitted to choose one of four books, all of which are different genres. Then the book they select will be delivered to their door. Magic! Excuse me, I need to re-up my subscription.

    Shipping info: You can send gift memberships via email immediately or print it out and pop it into a card!

    Get three months from Book of the Month for $49.99.

    13. 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. Their skin will thank you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This 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: "I use this ice roller in my esthetician treatment room after extractions, peels and/or waxing. My clients love it! It drastically reduces inflammation and swelling...thereby leaving the skin in a much healthier state than if I didn't use it. I actually prefer this to my magic globes because of the ease of rolling over the skin. Globes tend to skip/jump if the skin is not properly lubricated with a lot of product. I can apply a calming colloidal oatmeal masque (in powder form) or other setting masque and simply roll right over it. If it is too chilly for your client...simply put a damp esti wipe on the skin as a barrier. Very easy to clean and disinfect between clients." —Chris DeFelice

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in five colors).

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

    12 different colored bath bombs in a box
    Amazon

    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

    15. A smart portable pack of soap sheets so your loved one will never find themselves panicking in a public bathroom that *just* ran out of soap.

    The pink plastic container with ears and a nose, plus the pink paper-thin soap sheets
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Exactly what I wanted! Hands feel very clean after wash! Highly recommend! I read other reviews and decided these had the best reviews, those reviews did not disappoint! Each sheet of soap produces enough soap to give the comfort of knowing your hands are throughly clean. We liked our first order so much that we bought 10 packs for my fiancé's work crew to help make keeping their hands clean during this pandemic! ( he’s a delivery driver/repair tech). If you have wanted to try something like this product, I highly recommend this brand!" —Clippin4you

    17. A rapid egg cooker they can use to whip up a delicious and filling breakfast to start their day off on the right foot.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    One little machine that can whip up hard-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelets? Sounds magical! And let me tell you — it is. Get one of these egg-cellent appliances ASAP.

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there...peels come right off :) Makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life!??!?" —rebecca

    19. A roll-on migraine stick to 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

    20. A 12-inch foam roller they'll surprisingly get a lot of use of even if they aren't a gym rat. It's perfect for loosening the muscles in your back/legs after sitting at a desk all day (or stress-induced tension).

    Amazon

    I have this little foam roller and use it almost every night. I roll my spine over it and it releases all the tension in a series of very satisfying cracks. Get one — add it into your pre-bedtime ritual!

    Promising review: "My chiropractor recommended I buy the 36" version of this for some daily routine back-stretching to do at home. This product has been amazing for stretching, and massaging sore muscles throughout my back and shoulders. I feel very supported by this roller and have had no issues with it thus far. I weigh 200 pounds and have yet to damage this roller after weeks of use. Overall very pleased with this product. And at such a great price, I honestly can't find a single negative remark to note about it." —Luke Marrs

    Get it from Amazon for $14+ (available in four sizes and seven styles).

    21. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    22. A knit weighted blanket unlike any you've probably seen before — it's weighted naturally with a layering technique instead of with artificial filling. And it looks SO snuggly!

    a model with a green woven blanket around them
    Nuzzie

    Promising review: "This blanket has changed my life. I can't believe how much better I sleep. I was really concerned that it would be hot (Texas summers are brutal), but the wide knit allows for air flow while the weight gives a calming pressure. It's perfection. We have a king sized and it looks beautiful on our bed as well." —Caitlin

    Shipping info: Orders are shipped within three to five business days, but you can also upgrade to two-day shipping.

    Get it from Nuzzie for $150+ (available in 8, 15, 20, and 25 pounds and 9 colors).

    Promising review: "I bought these to help entertain children at a big dinner party, and they were a huge hit! Ages 3–10 loved them! You can use them easily to make a small, simple design or something more elaborate. The kids loved them and I will purchase again. Great purchase!" —Rachel Castlen

    Promising review: "These sticky notes are so cute, even if you might not be a cat lover. I read a lot and I like to mark pages and passages so that I can refer to them again, enjoying them more than once. If you like to write things on your sticky bookmarks, these might not be the best for you, but for marking pages and putting a smile on your face, these cute cat sticky notes are just the thing. I need to order again, because my daughter and my granddaughter have taken some of them to use, too!" —Ray Wheeldon

    27. A stainless-steel ring that doubles as a fidget spinner that'll help keep your best friend calm, cool, and collected in stressful times.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had this ring for about two weeks now and just had to write a review. I've had the nervous/bored habit of picking at my fingers since I was a kid. I can't remember the last time I've not had at least one nail bed torn up and bloody. For people with similar habits, I can't recommend this ring enough. It's a great, non-distracting way to redirect fidgety behaviors. I've worn it every day since receiving it and for the first time in years I have intact nail beds! Every time I catch myself starting to pick at a dry patch of skin or uneven cuticle on my finger, I rotate the ring a few times and the impulse disappears." —KGL

    amazon.com, Amazon

    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

    29. A throw pillowcase cover to make them giggle or provide them with a place to scream without their neighbors hearing. Goodbye, pent-up aggression.

    Note: this is only for the pillowcase, so be sure to also pick up a filler pillow here :)

    Promising review: "I bought this as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. The material was thicker than I originally thought it would be, you cannot see the pillow through the case (I used a dark brown pillow). The sewing is well-done and the invisible zipper on the bottom seems secure. It fit perfectly over a standard throw pillow. It seems like it will be pretty durable considering it's for decoration. Highly recommend." —Ashley Romano

    30. A collapsible Stojo cup they can use to bring their fave hot beverage on their morning walk then simply squish it down and pop it into their bag without a worry it won't be able to fit.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I have one of these cool cups and have been really impressed with it. I use it on early mornings when I'm craving a cup of hot tea but have to run some errands. It pops open really easily, feels very durable, and keeps my drink hot.

    Promising review: "Love this cup. I was originally turned off to it due to the size of the top section, however it's not as big as it looks online and it's the perfect size. It will fit most purses but not likely women's pant pockets. After filling it with water I shook the cup and there was no leaking. Even after I finished my latte and collapsed the cup there was no residue leakage at all. The cup didn't get excessively hot either. The cup also had mL markers on the inside which is wonderful. I highly recommend this product!" —HR

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I've recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!)." —Amazon Customer

    I have this candle from this small business and I absolutely love it. It makes me smile when I'm feeling overwhelmed because it reminds me of one of my favorite shows. It has an 80+ hour burn time, features three scents, is hand-poured in the USA and is made of a clean, plant-based blend of natural coconut and soy wax. The jar can even be reused once your pal has finished burning every last bit of the candle! If your BFF isn't into Schitt's Creek they have many other shows (such as The Golden Girls, Game of Thrones, and The Office) for you to check out as well.
