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.

I have one of these and it's *so* pretty! I love that it's personalized with my name. I displayed it on my desk for a while until I finally got a chance to wear it to an event. It's absolutely dazzling and makes for such a fun gift. Rae of Light is a woman-owned small business that sells, obviously, custom bags! 

Get it from Rae of Light for $99 (available in 39 styles).

Four monogrammed mugs

I just love Rifle Paper Co. and know that if I was having a rather stressful day, glancing over at this beautiful mug would fill me with joy.

Promising review: "These cups are exquisite. I bought three and will get more! 1) they look exactly like the photos. Colors are vivid & beautiful; 2) gold lettering is thick & 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

Get it from Anthropologie for $14 (available in 26 styles).

7. A custom case for your luggage to help you spot your bag right away and let you head out on your next adventure in a snap.

a light pink beaded bracelet with a charm of a moon

I own one of these bracelets and customized it with the moon from my wedding night and had it engraved with the date. It's lightweight but durable and really feels special because it represents one of the best days of my life. I've since given it as a gift multiple times!

Promising review: "This is just the cutest bracelet...way better than expected and way prettier in person. It’s light, which is great because I can’t keep heavy/chunky bracelets on for very long.  I can wear this all day without it bothering me. I was concerned about the size since I have a very small wrist, but it fit perfectly and has ample stretch for larger wrists as well." —Jessica G.

Get it from Moonglow for $49+ (available in four colors and with engraving).

11. A splurge-worthy Magic Band reader FOR YOUR HOME (!!!), because you have Disney Adult Money and can spend it on whatever you please. You can choose from a variety of options and styles to really make it *yours*.

Cinema Guy Store / Etsy

Guuuuuuuys. Just when I thought I could only use my Magic Bands when entering a Walt Disney World park or hotel, I discovered THIS. You can hook it up with a smart outlet in your home, scan it, and marvel over it as it turns your lights on and plays sounds (just like WDW!!!). The Magic Band reader will only control lights/electronics that are hooked up through the smart outlets. Gosh, I'm baffled and amazed. You can check out a video of it in action on TikTok — totally worth your while. Most importantly, Cinema Guy Store is a small business based in New York and they sell ALL kinds of styles (the Happily Ever After Fireworks and Madame Leota styles are next-level).

Promising review: "OK first of all, unpacking it was AMAZING!!! I opened the box and was confused at first because it was playing music at me! Literally the best box ever! I’ve never smiled that much opening a box!!! The item was amazing! My kids are so excited!!! Thank you so much for bringing a little WDW magic to our house!" –kristen zawadzki

Get it from Cinema Guy Store on Etsy for $199+ (available with or without additional smart outlets).

12. Book of the Month, so when you finally score a moment of free time you can spend it reading something new. My apologies to your TBR stack that's about to grow exponentially.

bookofthemonth / Via, 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 your mind if you've recently been stressed. Each month you'll be permitted to choose one of four books, all of which are different genres. Then the book you selected will be delivered to your door. Magic! Excuse me, I need to re-up my subscription.

Get a three month subscription from Book of the Month for $49.99.

13. A Trade Coffee Subscription that'll provide you with new beans to try that have been personally selected just for you — you won't even have to leave the house!

tradecoffeeco / Via

My husband has said this is the best thing I've ever gotten for him — and he's verrrrrry snobby about his coffee. He looks forward to the monthly deliveries and loves that he gets to test out different beans all the time. This site will ask you a series of questions like "How do you usually make your coffee at home?" and "What is your coffee experience level?" and then pair you with a coffee Trade thinks you'd be best suited for. It's like having a barista customize your drink for you all the time! You can choose "The Classics" subscription in which you'll get one to two 12-oz bags per order or "The Hookup" which gets you one pricier 12-oz bag.

Get it from Trade Coffee starting at $12.50/month.

Psst: if you prefer iced drinks (ahem, me) check out their cold brew coffee subscription!

14. An embroidered BaubleBar iPhone case, *sew* cute and an absolute a must-have for anyone who wants to feel a bit like an influencer every time they snap a pic.

a pile of different colored phone cases with various things embroidered on them

baublebar / Via, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

I used BaubleBar's "Block It Out" phone case for almost two years and it truly held up. It had barely any wear and tear aside from some discoloring along the sides (it HAD been a while). I always got tons of compliments on it and I hadn't really had the urge to change my case since getting it. I even got one for my cousin as a gift — I really do love it! I've loved being *extra* and having my name plastered on my phone, so it's probably only natural that I upgraded to this new embroidered version. It's super cute and comes in a variety of designs! My friends have told me they liked this style *more* than the last one (it's a little more subtle). I love them both equally but it's been fun to mix it up a bit!

Get it from BaubleBar: the "Sew Cute" design, the "All Smiles" design, the "Double Up" design, and the "Better Together" design for $68 each (available for iPhones 7–12 Pro Max).

15. A Wreck This Journal that'll encourage you to get more in touch with your artistic side, great if you've always 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 you're done with it.

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

Get it from Amazon for $9.59.

16. A engravable bar ring you'll love so much you'll be convinced it fell from minimalist jewelry heaven.


I have one of these little beauties and has become one of my favorite accessories. I had mine engraved with my mantra, "let it go," and love the subtle reminder this lil' ring provides me!

Promising review: "My granddaughter picked out this ring for her 19th birthday and it is beautiful! She is thrilled with the delicacy of the ring and it's exactly what she wanted." —Ruth M.

Get it from Jewlr for $89+ (available in sizes 4–12 and seven metals).

17. A "Cheugy and Proud" candle that'll make you laugh every time you light it. It's a must for anyone who is tired of their younger sibling teasing them about their likes/dislikes/age.

SaltedBurns / Etsy

SaltedBurns is a woman-owned small business in Atlanta, Georgia. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Rebecca Taylor, the owner, and she is absolutely lovely. I'm a candle fiend (truly, ask anyone that knows me) and these pass my test. They burn cleanly (yay soy wax!) and, of course, this cheugy-inspired candle smells like pumpkin spice. I have it and can't wait to light it!

Get it from SaltedBurns on Etsy for $20.

18. A personalized LED lamp featuring your gamer tag — it'll motivate you to keep going and growing. I don't even need to mention how awesome it'll look with your gaming setup.

BelvedereCollections / Etsy

BelvedereCollections is a small business based in Birmingham, UK that sells customized gifts for the home.

Promising review: "Great little piece that has now been added to my boyfriend's PC set up! He loved it, the range of color selection is good and the gamer tag is easy to see and read." —Michaela Riordan 

Get it from BelvedereCollections on Etsy for $35.76 (available in 16 fonts).

19. A tile floor mat you can customize any which way you want — no need to swap out your mat for each holiday or season!

Get it from the Grommet for $75+ (available in two sizes).

Straga Products is a small business based out of Toronto that sells custom wood cutting boards.

Promising review: "Purchased this cutting board in maple for our first anniversary. It came packaged beautifully, and the etching was perfect.

Not only did we receive a beautiful product at the correct address, but customer service needs were promptly addressed in a timely manner. Thank you for a great product!!" —HopeCameron

Get it from Straga Products on Amazon Handmade for $34 (available in 10 styles).

Get it from MYMILLIEjewelry on Etsy for $36+ (available in 3 metals and 13 lengths).

23. A  gaming keyboard that features a customizable rainbow backlight and OmniPoint Adjustable Switches that'll make any gamer say, "Ooooh!"

the glowing keyboard

Promising review: "I am extremely satisfied with this keyboard. Let me begin by saying I’m pretty picky when it comes to buying a keyboard. The SteelSeries provides equivalent, if not better, satisfaction to other keyboards I've owned within every click meanwhile maintaining a significantly more quiet sound in comparison to my previous. The color customization on the backlights are never ending with countless of combos and a fair variety of click animations. Overall, I would recommend anyone this keyboard if you are looking for a premium comfort, quality, and quietness." —Catherine Tagle

Get it from Amazon for $163.46.

24. A personalized throw blanket made of a super-soft acrylic knit material you can count on to look as cute on your couch as it will wrapped around your shoulders during a Zoom call.


I have this blanket in the neon green and it's so fun! I like that it's different from my typical throws — and that it has MY initials on it so my husband or sister can't steal it. It really is incredibly soft but doesn't make me feel overheated. Definitely worth the splurge.

Get it from BaubleBar for $98 (available in five colors and with two initials. You can check it out in a smaller size here.).

25. A sweatshirt embroidered with your favorite Taylor Swift lyric to cozy up in while listening to an endless loop of Folklore and Evermore (crying in the bathtub at the same time is not required but also not frowned upon).

thethreethirteen / Via, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

A handful of us have ordered pieces from Three Thirteen and have nothing but positive things to say about this woman-owned small business. My fellow BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord didn't have to do much convincing to get me to add one of these beauties into my cart shortly after hers arrived. The best part about this shop is that you can have the embroidery done on an array of items — sweatshirts, tees, hoodies, or a long sleeve. The quality is fantastic and I'll be living in mine long after the next rumored TS album arrives.

Get the crewneck from from Three Thirteen for $40 (available in unisex sizes S–3XL, 10 colors, 7 Evermore styles and 5 Folklore styles, 5 Fearless styles, 3 1989 styles) and 5 Red styles.

26. A personalized leather money clip you can engrave with your name and favorite character — good luck trying to choose between Boba Fett and BB-8.

Etsy / Left Coast Original

Left Coast Original is a small business based in Florida. You can even choose exactly where on the money clip the engraving will be placed!

Promising review: "I ordered the Jedi dark brown wallet and it’s exactly like the pictures. Shipping was really fast, I ordered it on August 12th and got it on August 17th. I got it for my fiancé for our anniversary and I can’t wait to give it to him. It’s such a nice, really good quality wallet." —Amari Lacuesta

Get it from Left Coast Original on Etsy for $32.57+ (originally $40.71+; available in 3 colors; 12 font options and 16 image choices; free shipping).

27. A date night bucket list kit to provide you and your partner with ideas to make your weekends more interesting and exciting.

Uncommon Goods

You and your partner can spend an entire night brainstorming fun at-home or socially distanced date ideas, write them down on popsicles or use the prompts that are written on each one, then take turns drawing from the tin each weekend.

Promising review: "My friend and her partner LOVED this. They have been trying to grow closer after seven years together romantically and 50+ years of being friends. It brought them excitement and joy. I want to buy myself and my boyfriend one. They are in their seventies. We are in our twenties. It is a gift for all ages that keeps on giving!" —Cady

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $20.

28. Mid-century cursive house numbers that'll look *so* charming next to your front door — you're bound to get compliments from all of your new neighbors.

Promising review: "Oh my gosh, I cannot say how thrilled I am with this purchase. Renovating an older home, and these just make it perfect. I smile every time I look at them. I wish I could give 10 stars. Thank you!" —Caroline Frye

Get them from GoHomeNumbers on Etsy for $9+ (available in 10 colors).

29. The Cricut Mug Press, a must-have for anyone looking for a new go-to craft. You'll use it alongside your Cricut machine to create customized mugs for everyone in your life.

Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

Me and my mother-in-law recently got our hands on this new gadget and, with some practice, nailed the crafting process. The Cricut Mug Press doesn't need to connect to Bluetooth like the other gadgets, it heats up and the transfer of the design is done by hand. You'll need a Cricut machine to actually do the cutting beforehand. Don't forget to order some mugs — you'll find yourself wanting to make a whole slew of designs right off the bat.

Promising review: "This mug press is amazing, especially if you’re limited on space! Traditional heat presses with mug attachments and regular mug presses are bulky and take up a good chunk of space. I love that I can easily pack it up and put is away when I’m not using it. The mugs came out amazing! I really like that I don’t need to figure out the heat and time settings; it automatically detects the temperature of the mug, room, etc. and determines how long to press and what temperature is needed. I’ve tried it with infusible ink and sublimation and it works amazing for both!" —lindasierra

Get it from Amazon for $179.99.

30. An embroidered hat that'll keep the sun out of your eyes *and* provide you with the Disney Adult energy you've been searching for while scrolling through influencers who seemingly spend every day at Magic Kingdom.

999Spyglass / Etsy

Every hat is made to order and is so well-crafted from this woman-owned small business, you'll likely start making excuses to wear one. Bad hair day every day? Yep, sounds good. You can also have custom embroidery added onto the back! I have and have gifted Claire's items many times now — they never disappoint to impress. 999Spyglass Is a small business based out of Baltimore, Maryland that sells, obviously, embroidered hats!

Get it from 999Spyglass on Etsy: Sleeping Beauty Castle (left) or Cinderella Castle (right) for $24.99+ each (available with or without extra monogramming and in 13 colors).

31. A set of custom stickers you'll be able to make of whoever you want — your pet, your own face, Harry Styles, the list goes on and on.

Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

And all you have to do is click 'Customize Now' and then upload a well-lit image! I bought these as a funny stocking stuffer for my husband a few years ago and it was a big hit.

Promising review: "I think this might be one of the best things I've ever bought on Amazon. I bought one sheet for my mom for Christmas, and they just came. She hasn't seen them, but I know they'll crack her up. They look fantastic. I'll definitely buy more!!" —Claudia Basile

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

32. A plush toy that looks just like you! It's also a great gift for the person who seemingly has everything.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

You can also get a plush toy made after a child's drawing.

My co-worker got one made of herself and here is what she said about it: "I never knew what a doll I was until I got this lil' cutie in my life. The design process is simple and super satisfying. Just upload a photo with the outfit you want the doll to have, approve the check made by the designers, and wait on your incredible custom piece! Get ready to have your self esteem hit unhealthily happy levels." —Mallory Mower

Get it on sale from Budsies for $99 (originally $115).

33. A 23andMe DNA testing kit that'll give you a full breakdown of just how Italian you are ... or aren't!

the 23andme packaging 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.

34. A zodiac trinket dish for any pal who plans their entire life around their horoscope and whether or not Mercury is in retrograde.

The cream-colored dish with lid, and inside is "Libra charming, diplomatic, idealistic"
Urban Outfitters

Promising review: "Super cute and convenient. I put my crystals and rings in there." —Serggg

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $12 (originally $18; available in all 12 zodiac signs).

35. A pint glass featuring an illustration of you and your favorite hobby — buy 'em for your entire family just think of how cute you'll all look sippin' out of them at the same time.

Pint glasses with illustrations of people reading, golfing, playing baseball, and having a cat

Promising review: "My husband is a man of not many wants. He's a bit of a minimalist. So getting gifts for him is always a challenge cause he is not a sports fan, he does not really 'collect' anything, but he does like beverages, so when I came across this glass I thought it was perfect! My husband agrees. It has become his favorite cup! It's stylish, simplistic and he loves it! I will definitely order again and highly recommend!!" —MermaidRach

Get it from UncommonGoods for $32+ (available in sets up to eight glasses).

36. And a stylish ring to help keep you calm, cool, and collected in stressful times — you can add into your daily accessories. When you spin it you'll unveil a secret motivational message.


My co-worker Ali Faccenda (precious human that she is) knows I have anxious tendencies and sent me one of these rings for Christmas. I actually didn't even realize it had a secret message on it (mine says "breathe") until I checked out the website myself. I've been spinning it absentmindedly during meetings and phone calls — it's quite soothing and comes from a woman-owned small business. You'll be able to customize your own set (the band, the spinner, and the saying) which is fabulous.

Get it from CONQUERing for $26 (available as a necklace or a ring and 17 phrases).
