    55 Gifts To Surprise Your Sibling With For The Holidays

    Whether it's a selfie light for your Tik Tok-obsessed sister or a temporary tattoo for your jokester brother, you're bound to find the perfect gift in this list.

    1. The Lord of The Rings trilogy box set your sibling will happily geek out over and insist you marathon together immediately.

    the box set

    Promising review: "We recently purchased the 'Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Trilogy' on Blu-ray as a birthday gift for our son, who has always been a great fan of these movies. He absolutely loves the set we gave him. It contains all three films (extended versions, of course) with glorious high definition video and DTS-HD Master multi-channel audio, plus a plethora of bonus features as well. There’s nothing I can add to the overwhelming number of 5-star reviews of the films themselves (again, the extended versions), so I won’t even try. I have seen them all — more than once — and I completely agree with those 5-star opinions. I recently had a chance to watch The Fellowship of the Ring with my son on his home theater system, and it seemed like I was watching it in a theater once again." —Mike Powers

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    2. A Two Minute Mornings journal complete with gratitude prompts they can use to start the day off on a positive note (even BEFORE coffee, can you imagine!?).


    Promising review: "I am a grad student in a very strenuous program and I like staying busy that way. But on breaks, when I have too much time, I sink into nothingness. I didn't expect this book to do much, especially since I thought 'mindfulness' was some BS. Even if it's the same prompts every day, it's what you make out of the book. I like mentally checking off the three small accomplishments I held myself accountable for in ink, somehow the book is better than my Post-It note to-do lists. And the main reason for the 5 stars, it helps with my depression." —KellBell

    Get it from Amazon for $12.10.

    3. A set of five nail polishes and a top coat so they can create one of those trendy ombré manicures without heading out to a pricey salon.

    Olive and June

    I am a huge fan of Olive and June's nail polish. It goes on very smoothly and doesn't chip even after a week! I personally have this "Pink Sweater" set on my holiday wish list — I love how these colors will work all year long. This brand is also proudly 7-free, which means it doesn't contain harmful chemicals that most polishes do.

    Get it from Olive and June for $40 (available in six styles).

    4. A Baby Yoda case for your AirPods to make sure they don't misplace their precious headphones (again) while also showing off some of their personal flair.

    the baby yoda with the head tilted up to reveal airpods inside

    Promising review: "Talk about making me smile, this Baby Yoda case cover is a fun way to protect your AirPods — especially if you are a Star Wars fan. The case cover is very well designed and feels sturdy. It is made of PVC and the 3D design just looks great. The product comes in three pieces that include the body, the head, and keychain carabiner. The attention to detail is very good down to the gloss reflection on the eyes to give it that perfect touch." —Dan

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    5. A retro-styled fleece Patagonia jacket, so cozy they'll be so appreciative of you the next time a snowstorm rolls around and they'll already have the perfect outfit.

    a plush tan full zip sweatshirt

    I bought my husband one of these as a surprise last Christmas and it's one of his favorite pieces of clothing. It's super snuggly and plush and the detailing on the zippers and pockets adds an extra pop of color. Patagonia jackets last forever — I can't recommend it enough.

    Promising review: "Love the Retro-X, I’ve been wearing Patagonia gear for over 20 years and am always impressed by the workmanship, quality and longevity of their products. This recently purchased Retro-X jacket does not disappoint. Patagonia is the best!!" —Bruno L.

    Get it from Patagonia for $199 (available in men's sizes 2XS–2XL and five styles).

    6. A flexible tripod so you and your siblings can take an Instagram-worthy holiday card photo without your mom cropping off your heads.


    Promising review: "I purchased this for my son to use with his cellphone (Galaxy S9) to take pictures and since he is taking a photography class in school. The remote worked easily with his phone. The tripod is sturdy and very flexible. I really like how the flexibility of the legs allows you to use the tripod in many different mounting positions compared to a firm leg-type tripod. I also like the fact that we can use this with our good camera as well. I haven't tried that yet, but know it is sturdy enough to easily hold that as well (which is a Panasonic Lumix DMC camera). Definitely recommend this product." —B. Kaplan

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    7. Ugg's classic ultra mini bootie to keep their feet feeling pampered all day long (and to stop them from stealing your favorite booties, @mysister).

    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).

    8. A Jurassic Park–themed face mask your sibling will love just as much as they do Jeff Goldblum.

    You can check out BuzzFeed's guide to the CDC's face covering recommendations, which include answers to all your burning mask questions as well as tutorials for how to make your own.

    Type Of Fit: Polyester/spandex ear loops

    Pocket For Filter: No

    Fabric Type: 100% polyester on the outside, 100% cotton on the inside

    Get it from Universal Orlando Resort for $8.

    9. A selfie ring light for flattering photos they can ~click, click, click, and post~ like Ariana Grande on Instagram.

    the ring light in three different settings

    Promising review: "I have been wanting something to help me get better pictures of my craft things that I make and sell. I normally use a lantern but it was difficult. I debated on a ring light for a while but didn’t want anything that big. I wanted something that attached to my phone. I heard about these from a friend so I immediately had to check them out. I had looked at lights before but somehow missed these. I ordered it right away. I am so happy with it. I love this thing and I would recommend to anyone. It is so easy to use." —Kortney

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    10. A festive Taylor Swift sweatshirt for the sibling you can count on to stay up until midnight with you each time Tay drops a new single. Family Christmas card outfits, anyone?

    IdeasByArianna / Etsy

    I have this sweatshirt and cannot wait to wear it all throughout the holiday season. It's very cozy and, of course, pays tribute to my favorite artist. You can find me and my sisters wearing these while singing to Taylor's holiday album.

    Get it from IdeasByArianna on Etsy for $41.60 (available unisex sizes XS–5XL and three colors).

    11. Or an embroidered crewneck for your ride-or-die who would never say no to an all-weekend-long holiday movie binge.

    five sweatshirts in red, blue, grey, maroon, and green that says "christmas movie season" with a tree next to it
    BlairLambDesign / Etsy

    If it's not about a successful businesswoman visiting a small town in Vermont and falling in love with the man who runs the local coffee shop... I don't want it.

    Get it from BlairLambDesign on Etsy for $25+ (available in sizes S–3XL and seven colors).

    12. 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 $11.99.

    13. An acrylic monogram necklace you can have customized with their initials for a unique piece to add to their collection of accessories.

    a model wearing three different sized acrylic monograms

    Get it from BaubleBar for $58 (available in two chain lengths, two metals, four monogram sizes, and 12 colors).

    14. Pikmin 3 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch for your sibling who has *just* about burnt themselves out on Animal Crossing.


    I was lucky enough to receive an early preview of Pikmin 3 Deluxe and it has been so much fun. I admittedly had never played any of the earlier versions, so this first time around for me has been really great. The storyline revolves around befriending different types of Pikmin and using them to strategically defeat enemies and overcome obstacles. Also....the Pikmin are so darn cute!!!

    If you haven't gotten on the Switch bandwagon yet you can learn about your options here and find the regular Nintendo Switch on Amazon for $299 or the Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    15. 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 TV., 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

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    16. A lavender and Earl Grey Paddywax candle that'll remind them of snuggling up with a warm cup of tea on a cold winter day.

    paddywaxcandles / Via, Paddy Wax

    I have had a few of these over the years and love to reuse the ceramic bowls to hold jewelry and other trinkets. I've yet to find another Earl Grey-scented candle that replicates the feeling of actually drinking a freshly steeped mug. My husband often tries to steal this one away from me — it's easily his favorite of all the candles I've hoarded over the years.

    Get it from Paddy Wax for $25+ (available in two sizes).

    17. A throw pillow case cover to make them giggle and remind them of that time you binge-watched multiple seasons while sitting around your parents' house with nothing to do over the holidays.

    a pillow case that says "dwight you ignorant slut"

    Note: this is only for the pillow case, 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

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. A dish towel that'll recreate a handwritten version of a meaningful recipe one of your parents or grandparents made, so special they may even tear up over how thoughtful you were while choosing a gift.

    a tea towel with a recipe transffered onto it
    FlatlandsBoutique / Etsy

    Promising review: "Tracey did an awesome job with the tea towels that I ordered! Even some of the discoloration from my grandmother’s recipe cards came through on the print! So authentic and amazing! She even sent me pictures of the final product before shipping them out to me! I have passed your name along to friends interested in having a similar gift made. Thank you so much!!!" —Aerdna Draeb-Nosdrahcir

    Get it from FlatlandsBoutique on Etsy for $12.50.

    19. A personalized cup any Potterhead will rejoice over since now they'll be able to show off their love for the magical wizarding world *and* coffee all in one.

    20. A puzzle filled with bright colors, so beautiful you might as well also gift it with a picture frame because any recipient is going to want to save this one forever.

    the forest walk puzzle featuring a woman walking through an array of flowers
    Lisa Newman

    My mom likes to say she's been "doing puzzles since before it was a quarantine trend," so it was only fitting I sent her this stunning puzzle. It's 500 pieces, so it's not *too* hard for a newbie puzzler, but challenging enough for someone who likes to do them often. Each piece is eco-friendly, as everything the puzzle is made of is recycled or biodegradable. I love Lemonade Puzzles for all the reasons I just mentioned, but also because it's a woman-owned business that also highlights female artists.

    Get it from Lemonade Puzzles for $29.99.

    21. A teeny tiny Magic 8 Ball your indecisive sibling can use to make decisions on the spot without overthinking it. Should they come over and watch the latest cheesy Netflix holiday movie with you? All signs point to yes.


    Promising review: "I'm having a blast with this miniature Magic 8 Ball. It sits on the table by my recliner for easy access. With it, I'm now free of the majority of decision-making in my life which relieves me of any stress, anxiety, or uncertainty that might come over me at any moment. I no longer have to take any responsibility for my actions; I can just blame it on the 8 Ball. It fits easily into almost any sized pocket, so, if I'm going out, I can take it along and let it play the same role in my life. This ability to take my new decision-maker with me in smaller form is great! It's a nice return to my childhood, inexpensive, and a much-needed reprieve from the stress of our contemporary society. Everyone should have one and have some light-hearted fun!" —ALW

    Get it from Amazon for $7.86.

    22. A crewneck to help them express their entire 2020 mood — a skeleton sippin' on some coffee. It's just as relatable as it is comfortable!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this shirt oversized. But I was surprised at how soft this crewneck was! Graphic has held up in multiple washes." —Jillydukez

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in unisex sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    23. A carbonated bubble clay mask with over 6,000 5-star reviews that starts to bubble once it's applied — get one for you and each of your siblings and prepare for a fun night of selfies (all the while banishing your blackheads).


    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 $8.89.

    24. A subscription to Disney+ so you can selfishly use it also and stream all of the classic movies you grew up watching together.

    The Walt Disney Company, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    My sister and I agreed to split our Disney+ subscription and we've had the best time talking about which movies and shows we've watched / which ones we need to wait and watch together. It's been really special to relive so many of our Disney-infused childhood memories together thanks to this subscription service. Excuse me, I'm getting sentimental and I think there's a piece of pixie dust in my eye.

    Get a subscription to Disney+ for $6.99 a month, $69.99 a year, or a 7-day free trial.

    25. Dazzling earrings that'll leave them ~starry-eyed~ from the moment they unwrap them.

    a model wearing tiny gold star stud earrings

    Promising review: "I got these for my daughter and she absolutely loved them! Perfect size in cute design, affordable price but the best of all they're gold so she doesn’t have to worry about taking them off every time she showers." —Vinh N.

    Get them from Mejuri for $80.

    26. A New York Times crossword puzzle book any word nerd would be delighted to receive — just don't expect them to pay attention to you at all for the next week with the exception of asking you "what's an eight-letter word for snowstorm!?"

    the blue cover of the crossword puzzle book

    Promising review: "I love this thing! The print is nice and large, and the spiral binding is super nice. The paper is still newspaper-y which makes it feel like a newspaper crossword without having to lug around a newspaper. I use erasable pens, and they erase great. The boxes are plenty big enough for the letters and the crosswords are all appropriately 'Monday' difficulty. Great thing to have! Can’t wait to finish it and move on to Tuesday!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

    Think they'll want more of a challenge? Try the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday versions of this book for increasing difficulty!

    27. BuzzFeed x Birchbox's splurge-worthy box complete with items to take their beauty routine to the next level.

    an array of products in the specially curated buzzfeed birchbox

    This specially curated box comes with $200 worth of beauty products including some of our favorites like a First Aid Beauty Arnica Relief & Rescue Mask and a GLAMGLOW® BUBBLESHEET™ Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask.

    Get it from Birchbox for $62.

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

    a model pouring the hot honey over chicken and waffles

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    29. Allbirds Tree Dashers specifically designed with natural materials that'll allow their feet to breathe as they run for as long (or as little) they want.


    Without access to the gym, I had to push myself to learn to run while safely social distancing (which is NOT an easy feat). I’ve had multiple foot injuries (I’m very accident-prone) so choosing the right sneaker has been a challenge. I’ve tried out manyyyy different pairs but the only ones that have truly won over my heart are the Allbirds Dashers. I got them in a stunning mint green color and get tons of compliments on them. They’re super supportive, lightweight, and have held up great against months of running outdoors. Honestly, I’m already looking into buying a second pair.

    Get them from Allbirds for $125 (available in sizes 5-11 and in eight styles).

    30. A framed photo from their wedding day that they likely never got around to ordering for themselves — they'll be surprisingly grateful.

    canvaschamp / Via

    Promising review: "My order arrived in great condition, wrapped carefully with the intention that the photo canvas art got to my home just as beautiful as it was when it left the facility. I will be making more orders from Canvas Champ. They really do nice work! I was very happy with my order. Great price too." —Lonnie

    Get a build-your-own framed print from Canvas Champs for $38.34+ (available in 25 colors and various glass styles).

    31. A winged eyeliner stamp for your sibling 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

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.97

    32. A 2021 calendar that'll bring the magic of Disney into their day EVERY DAY (since that's what calendars do).

    brandelane / Via, Brandelane

    I have this calendar stowed away as a Christmas gift for a fellow Disney-fanatic and I'm super excited about it. The illustrations are absolutely stunning and so intricate. It's a great little calendar for a cubicle or home office — I would know, I've been using one for the last year!

    Get it from Brandelane for $19.

    33. 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.

    two fluffy tan and grey throw blankets in a basket

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four sizes and 13 colors).

    34. A semi-temporary tattoo – it'll last about two weeks and provide your jokester of a sibling with a way to prank your parents.


    Inkbox has tons of options — one is sure to spark your sibling's interest. All they have to do is peel the white backing off the tattoo, place it wherever they'd like on their body, wipe it with alcohol, microwave the cloth so it's warm to the touch, press down on the tattoo, peel it off slowly, and let it develop over the next 24 hours. They can even customize their own design!

    Get them from inkbox: happy GameBoy for $18, space scene for $18, and check out the full array of designs here.

    35. A bundle from Haus Laboratories, a sure-to-be appreciated gift for any beauty fiend who also worships Lady Gaga.


    The kit comes with a bag, a liquid eyeshadow, a lip liner pencil, and lip gloss.

    Promising review: "Packaging is beautiful!!! Extremely high end quality with packaging alone. Had to try as soon as it arrived. I was kinda hoping it would be decent, but it by far exceeds my expectations. Lip liner, smooth and pigmented. Liquid eyeliner has so much shine and spreads to a dry finish like a dream. Lip gloss, well it's an average gloss. Definitely ordering more." —AllisonTexas2

    Get it from Amazon for $49 (available in 13 styles).

    36. A pore-cleansing clay mask that'll infuse moisture into their skin while removing dirt and oil — the gift that'll keep on giving.

    Erno Laszlo

    Promising review: "This product is AMAZING. It's an official holy grail product of mine. I ideally use it once-a-week, and it feels as if angels themselves have taken the time, to delicately renew my skin with the magical touch of their wings. I mix with equal parts water and vinegar and use the sensitive-skin time recommendation to avoid over-drying or any tenderness afterward, moisturize after and I'm good to go! I also find it works WONDERS as a spot treatment for the pimples that do happen to appear every-so-often. I love this stuff, use it often, and it still lasts FOREVER. Literally the best mask I've ever used." —Aagner

    Get it from Erno Laszlo for $18+ (available 1 or 3.3 oz).

    37. A DNA testing kit for your brother or sister who's been dying to know exactly HOW Italian you guys actually are.

    the 23andme packagine and screenshots of what the app looks like in use

    I personally bought myself this years ago when it first came out and it has been worth the money. When you buy both the Health + Ancestry kit you'll receive constant updates as they discover more health information. It's pretty incredible.

    Promising review: "Arrived in the mail Saturday morning. I spit in the tube, and put the tube in the prepaid package the same day. It was delivered to their lab Monday. Tuesday they began DNA extraction. Wednesday they began DNA analysis and Friday they finished their quality review. On Sunday I got my results. Expected time to ship your DNA to the lab is two to four weeks. Mine got there in two days. I expected to wait six to eight weeks before getting my results, but got them eight days after shipping the package. It was very exciting getting my ancestry and health results, as I'm adopted and wasn't sure of my nationality or any health risks. I was connected with over 1,000 DNA relatives, but only one was a close relative (second cousin). Overall I found this experience very enjoyable. 10/10" —K. Leclercq

    Get it from Amazon for $99.

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

    a stack of books
    bookofthemonth / Via

    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.

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

    39. A 20-piece set of hair clips to help your sister (who is always late) transform her style from *drab to fab* with the least effort possible.


    Promising review: "They're so beautiful! They're bigger than expected! But that's a good thing! Definitely buy them! They have a good grip, my hair is super straight and they don't slip off." —Yamiley M.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    40. And metal vintage feather bookmarks they can use to hold their place in their new book each month without having to dog-ear a single page.


    Promising review: "I love these bookmarks and will never use anything else! They are durable, not picking up any scratches or picks and staying shiny. They are a nice, thin metal, so they don't make your book bulky. They fit between the pages of a hard cover or paperback perfectly. They are not easy to lose, I still have the whole set." —Khia Morgan

    41. A curtain of twinkle lights that'll make them feel like they headed for the second star on the right and landed in Never Land every time they climb into bed.,

    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

    This set comes with a tube of Cloud Paint liquid blush, Boy Brow, and a Lash Slick mascara. I've personally used both Cloud Paint and Boy Brow (as well as *many* of my colleagues) and can say it is one of the greatest day-to-day makeup investments one may ever make.

    Promising review: "The perfect set for everyday, simple and easy make up. I use this kit nearly daily and makes my face so glowy. Highly recommend this set. I sometimes combine this with the Pro Tip Eyeliner for an extra pop on the eye." —Imogen

    Promising review: "These cups are exquisite. I bought three and will get more! 1. they look exactly like the photos. Colors are vivid and beautiful 2. gold lettering is thick and still subtle (you can see it if you want to and you can watch it disintegrate too. Super well done) 3. ceramic is solid yet not clunky. Excellent quality 4. I love a good British cuppa, especially if its made out of fine bone china. These are not, yet hold the heat equally well and are almost as tender on the lip. Totally in love :)" —LiselFrench

    a reviewer's crystal like lamp glowing in their bedroom

    Promising review: "Had been wanting a selenite lamp for a long time now. When the lightning deal came out on this, I knew it was the right time. Mine was about 9" and still fat which I wanted. The tall thin ones aren't as significant to me. The glow can be nice and bright or can be a glow that is dimmed. I prefer to use the dimmer setting to create a relaxing ambience after a long day. It was perfect for my relaxation space. Great quality and can be bright enough to work as a lamp simply for lighting." —TryMe

    Get it from Amazon for $33.16.

    49. A sweet bracelet that'll say what you want to without you actually having to get all mushy and emotional with your sibling.

    an array of vinyl stickers that turn adapters into disney characters

    Promising review: "Adorable. I love the way my charger looks now!!!! I've seen a lot of people bought this not knowing exactly what it was, so be aware of that before you buy: It's a sticker you put on your phone charger, not an actual phone charger, so be sure you're happy to pay this price for a sticker (and a few bonus stickers)!!! For me, it's definitely worth the price — my charger is adorable now. The sticker is holding up great, too. It's been months and it still looks as great as the day I bought it!" —Amazon Customer

    a black tile tracker attached to a bag's zipper

    Promising review: "I love my tiles! I have one I keep in the kitchen just to find my phone throughout the house on a daily almost hourly basis. I’m one of those people who goes from one spot at the house to another spot all the time and without the Tile to locate my phone I would spend half my day looking for it. I also have a Tile on my keys my purse and my camera. I love my tiles! I I don’t need to use those as often as I do the phone finding one, but I would say I use them at least once a week and usually twice." —Susie

    999Spyglass / Etsy

    How special is this!? I have other hats from this shop and have never been disappointed — the embroidery is done so carefully and beautifully. You'll need to send the shop owner a photo of your pet, then she'll hand draw it (amazing) and embroider it onto the hat. I can't think of a better way to pay tribute to your furry friend.

    Get it from 999Spyglass on Etsy for $70+ (available in 12 colors).

    Promising review: "This is such an awesome set. It's my favorite realistic space set and I thought nothing would beat the space shuttle. In my case, it's the perfect father and son build. (It's also great for father-daughter, mother-son/daughter, or just any person who likes to build Lego!) It has some creative building and a lot of great little details. It has a high piece count for the price. And it's a crazy moon rocket! What can possibly compete?" —Michael
