1. A mystical jigsaw puzzle perfect for anyone who loves to put together puzzles, but also likes something with just a little bit of ✨ magic ✨. What do I mean? Well, there's a fun surprise when you get to the last puzzle piece. 👀

amazon.com

Comes in 1000 pieces.

Promising review: "Just got this puzzle for something to do at home over the holidays. Seriously ... never seen a puzzle quite like this! It’s very impressive and exceeded my expectations already. The packaging is beautiful inside and out. Everything about shouts quality. I particularly liked the Kraft envelopes inside for the puzzle pieces & mystery. Heavy weight and substantial. The one holding the 1,000 puzzle pieces stays closed with Velcro! How cool! And the secret mystery envelope has a cool string loop tie. Makes you remember you can’t open it until the puzzle is done. The whole vibe of The Mystic Maze is quality and fun, and also looks like a challenging puzzle. Looking forward to getting started on this. Certainly a good 'stay home' fun activity. Highly recommend!" —Kyle Fletcher

Amazon

Promising review: "My friend had a dangly bookmark and I really liked the idea of it so I searched them on Amazon and I found this mermaid one. I am OBSESSED with mermaids so of course, I ordered one in record time! It's so beautiful and I use it all of the time. It's one of my top favorite purchases from Amazon to date." —Jessica

3. An air purifier because they're constantly complaining about how stuffy their apartment is, and this shows that you definitely listen to them, even when you're scrolling TikTok.

Reviewer photo of the white air purifier
amazon.com

Covers up to 1,200 square feet of space and captures up to 99.98% of particles such as dust, allergens, and even smoke! It has six high-speed micro fans that work together to evenly distribute airflow across the filter. The Clean Sense IQ tracks air quality and auto adjusts power to constantly maintain clean air in your home. 

Promising review: "We live in CA and are constantly inundated with smoke — and my family loves seafood so occasionally we have some 'foul odors' that we’d rather not endure. The day I received it, I plugged it in and it read that my air was moderately dirty (my language) and even gives percents. We were about 73% and within 15–20 minutes my whole downstairs was at 100% clean air. And my husband reheated salmon in the microwave (don’t get me started) and the house smelled AWFUL. I noticed a little button that shows you how to just eliminate odors and within five minutes the smell was gone! I leave it on auto so it ramps up the fan when needed and leaves it low when not. I am SO glad I took a leap and invested in this!" —Spartanmama

amazon.com

One reviewer even shared that he uses this stand to keep up with his glasses and also his wedding ring.

Promising review: "I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It sits on his nightstand and he uses it regularly. He doesn't lose his glasses as much. I've also noticed that he doesn't fall asleep with them on his face or somewhere in bed since he started using this. I like it because it saves me the aggravation of listening to my husband look for his glasses. It's cute yet functional." —Lady Tauber

amazon.com

It has three heat settings and a cool option! It has a nondetachable oval brush design for smoothing your hair, while the round edges create volume.

Promising review: "I LOVE this dryer. it makes my hair so soft and amazing, and it dries it so quickly. After I wash, I use  Hairgenics Pronexa Hair Bonder Bond Repairing Complex  and let it sit (AMAZING hair product, by the way), then wash it out, and dry with the Revlon. My hair looks like i just walked out of the salon and spent $100, every time." —Joey G.

amazon.com

Promising review: "A friend told me about these and I HAD to get them for my husband who is a huge child. He loves them so much. we have had a few meals with them and we even had the lights low for him to get the full effect. They are surprisingly bright, and longer/larger than normal chopsticks — this is not a detractor for us. To be honest, I'm a little jealous that I didn't get any for myself. Depending on how long they last I might find myself ordering two pairs next time." —NJH

10. A customized AirPods case so they can proudly display that these AirPods are, indeed, theirs *and* have a snarky remark for the "I don't see your name on it" comment their friends always say.

Reviewer's white Airpods case that says the name "Shakeeya" in a cursive font
amazon.com

It's anti-slip, anti-scratch, and dirt resistant. It's also compatible with AirPods wireless charging and AirPods Pro.

Promising review: "I must say this is a great product for a great price. It adds the protection I need from scratches when I take my AirPods in and out of my purse and when I lay them around. The name customization is nice and the font is neat. However, I did order two cases and one of my cases did not have the name centered. I was able to reach out to the seller and they were prompt and responsive about being sure to fix it and they allowed me to keep my original one, which I thought was very courteous of them even though I was ready to ship it back! I received my order within a reasonable time and I received my replacement just as fast. The keychain that attaches to the case is sturdy and handier than I thought. The AirPod cables are great for around the neck usage and it makes them harder to drop or lose while working out or doing a lot of moving. I would buy again and again from this seller. Quality product and customer service." —Shakeeya

Shipping info: Arrives within seven to eight business days.

Get it from the Marblefy store on Amazon Handmade for $13.99.

11. A massage gun because they've been going *hard* on those Peloton workouts, and their muscles are basically crying for help.

amazon.com

It has a super-quiet brushless motor that goes as low as 45 dB, making it perfect for at home, the office, or even at the gym!

Promising review: "I have terrible neck and back pain that keeps my up at night. This mini-massage gun is exactly what I have been looking for. The multiple accessory heads help me find the trigger points that I need to loosen up my neck and back muscles. After using the mini massage gun, my muscles feel a lot better, and I can actually sleep deeper at night." —Wound PA

12. A colorful bath bomb set that'll make their Self-Care Sunday bathtime that much more relaxing. ~ahh~

12 multi-colored bath bombs
Amazon

Promising review: "I have a bathtub addiction and am a five-to-six-night-a-week bathtubber. So, when I say I’ve tried all the bath bombs that Amazon provides, I’m serious. I keep going back to these not only because of the price but also because they actually work well. They don’t have all those annoying glitters and the scent actually sticks to your skin and serves a hydration purpose. I can’t say enough how much I love these over the 10 to 12 other brands I’ve tried." —JH

Promising review: "Just created an office in our house and was looking for a way to add some unique decor and incorporate nature. Well, this is PERFECT! It's absolutely beautiful, unique, functional, and sturdy. The glass seems extremely delicate so I was really nervous about screwing the bulb into the stand, but it went surprisingly smooth and has held up perfectly!" —LBrandst129

15. Or a paint-by-sticker set if they're not really into painting but want something fun and unique on their walls. It's made up of vintage travel posters they can hang up when they're finished so it's like traveling around the world right from their apartment.

Workman Publishing

Each comes with 12 posters and the stickers to complete them, including iconic travel posters from gondolas in Venice to the pyramids in Cairo.

Promising review: "I have no talent for jigsaw puzzles, crafts, knitting, painting, drawing (yeah, the list is quite long) and was looking for something similarly relaxing to do at home. Paint by sticker is my jam! The stickers are well organized by letter and number. The end result looks nice. It's easy to tuck away when you need the table or desk cleared off. Best of all, I find it truly relaxing. I do use tweezers to lift and place the stickers, but please don't let that seem intimidating. I am a klutz who doesn't always position the stickers correctly, but the overall effect looks just fine. I bought the travel posters book and love it." —Tree Teacher

amazon.com

It's got 112 pages of amazing designs for them to color!

Promising review: "The pages are beautiful, very nice-quality paper, one sided, I could go on. I would say it’s the best adult coloring book I own (I own quite a few), EXCEPT that it’s dang near impossible to remove pages from the book. I wish they were perforated." —Ashley W.

Everybody knows which pens are mine since I am the resident cat lady and lover of all cute things in the office. I always smile when I see their little faces looking out at me from their pen holder. It's like they're saying, 'Come play with us and write wonderful messages.' I couldn't be happier with these little guys.” —Goldie

Psst! The sides extend! This means it can definitely fit your bathtub!

Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well made, balanced and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

Promising review: "I have now been using my Easy Fermenter for several months. I continue to be delighted with the results. My favorite recipes are a cabbage/carrot sauerkraut, and a blend of fermented peppers (some sweet, some hot). I have recommended these fermenting lids to many of my friends because they make fermenting foods so incredibly easy! You will NOT be disappointed." —K. Dixon

Promising review: "Arrive quickly. Each is slightly a different shade upon close observation. Glides on smooth. No strong scent, however if you lick your lips it’s a slight bitter taste. No difference from a lipstick. Packaging is attractive and tubes themselves are also beautiful. Seems to last both feel and color. Definitely a natural, neutral look. Curious if the pink set is the same. At this point I would purchase again." —Lolo

The FireStick in front of TV with dialogue that says "Alexa, play The Mandalorian on Disney+"
Amazon

Promising review: "We love this thing! We have a house full of Alexa devices already, but have been dedicated Roku users for our TV streaming needs for the last seven-plus years. However one of our older Rokus started glitching out around the same time that Roku and YouTube (and YouTube TV) started having their disagreements, so I figured why not switch over while I'm in the market for a new device anyway and see what the Fire TV Stick can do... I was really surprised that the picture quality IS better (like, without me doing anything but switching the device, my TV itself detected a higher resolution capability from the Fire TV Stick and ran with it), and I love that I can see my Ring cameras on my living room TV now because of Alexa + Ring working together. I do like the home screen a bit better than Roku as well." —LillyJenny

35. A jar of Sichuan Chili Crisp because the idea of eating a meal without adding some kind of sauce is completely *unheard of* to them.

Fly By Jing

Fly By Jing is an Asian woman–owned small business making flavorful sauces and spice mixes you'll want to add to basically all of your recipes. The name is inspired by Chengdu's (the owner's hometown and the capital of the Sichuan province) "fly restaurants" — so called because they attract customers like flies. The chili crisp sauce is also made in Chengdu.

BuzzFeed Shopping writer Jonathan Mazzei says: 

"I got this sauce as a gift, and I have been obsessed ever since I tried it. It combines the most prized Sichuan peppercorns with fragrant dried chilies, fermented black beans, garlic, shallots and more for a numbing, umami-rich flavor that has enhanced truly everything I've tried it on — without overpowering the other flavors. I've been struggling to find the right sauce to take my home-cooked dishes to the next level, and let me tell you, this is it! Plus, the packaging is super cute and thoughtful, and mine even came with a beautiful little zine that includes a breakdown of the ingredients, some amazing recipe ideas, and more!"

36. A beginner's guide to calligraphy that'll have them writing fancy letters to all of their friends, and hopefully a love letter to you. Warning: Their friends may commission them to write their letters too.

Amazon

Promising review: "I’ve tried several instructional books on hand-lettering. This book is the best by far. I won’t say the names of the other books but suffice it to say they are all at the top of the list when you search for hand lettering. It is the only book that gives practice for the base strokes and also discusses posture and how to hold the pen and at what angle to the paper. It is also a lovely book to work with; nice artwork/illustrations. I recommend this book to other beginners out there!" —Karen Rorick

37. The New York Times Best of the Week Series: Monday Crosswords book because hasn't everyone thought once in their life how much they'd love to be able to just do these for fun?

The book has 50 puzzles and you can rest assured that they'll be able to use this book for a long time so they'll get your money's worth.

Promising review: "I love this thing! The print is nice and large and the spiral binding is super nice. The paper is still newspapery 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. It's a great thing to have! I can’t wait to finish it and move on to the New York Times Tuesday crossword puzzle book!" —Amazon Customer

38. An attachable wine aerator that has a large aerating chamber and air intake system to infuse their wine with the ~OPTIMAL~ amount of oxygen, all without having to pour their wine into a separate aerator.

Reviewers seem especially pleased at how it improves the taste of their cheaper wine selections.

Promising review: "I love wine! Cheap wine that tastes good? Even better. This turned a bottle of two-buck Chuck into a really nice Chardonnay. So I tried it on a better bottle of wine I usually keep on hand. Wow! I didn't think that $20 wine could get better but it did. Box wine? Improved! Really good bottles? Improved. About two months after I bought it, the tab that locks the two pieces together broke off. I was skeptical that the lifetime guarantee would be honored. I have bought things here before that had a lifetime guarantee only to find the company no longer exists. I sent my claim in and they offered to replace it and even expedited it to me for free. Can't say enough about their customer service. Friendly, helpful, and fast." —Hope 979

Simply close the lid and press the button to disinfect for 10 minutes. Sanitation will stop automatically when the lid is open to ensure safety.

Promising review: "Great for phones, keys, watches, wallets, and masks. Size is adequate for oversized phones. Phone-charging function is a nice bonus, but the sanitizing cycle is ~10 mins, so more practical if you want to leave to charge overnight. Trusted brand name at a reasonable price." —Cat

Promising review: "This is my first UV-cure gel polish kit and I don’t know why I didn’t buy this sooner! As soon as I received, I immediately tried five of the six included colors and they are gorgeous!! I did have to do two coats of the lightest pink for coverage and cured each coat for 60 seconds per the included instructions. I’m so pleased with everything else included.

amazon.com

Included in the kit is the yarn, a crochet hook, a metal tapestry needle, fiberfill stuffing, and two pairs of safety eyes.

Promising review: "I am very happy with this kit. The instructions were easy to follow and I had no trouble making these projects (I did watch a YouTube video on the adjustable ring). I was short on yarn for my second project, and had to get more yarn to finish. Overall, I would highly recommend this kit. One year later and I still use this book for its patterns. I made about 15 penguins at Christmas and some other animals for different people. I updated my review to 5 stars because of all the use I have got from this book!" —Dawn E. Nutter

It's easy to use and very easy to clean, plus it makes my morning coffee more palatable. It was well-packaged, has easy-to-follow instructions, and will get lots of use at my house.

47. A burrito blanket that combines their two favorite things: being cozy on the couch and also burritos.

amazon.com, amazon.com

One reviewer partially wrapped the blanket in aluminum foil to gift it like an actual-factual burrito and it's way too GENIUS!

Promising review: "Best purchase ever. Seriously. I thought after buying it I would regret it; $20 for a 5-foot blanket is a lot. But no. I opened the box containing its full glory, and I was stunned. I tore open the package, eager to experience the greatness of the Tortilla Blanket. The world around me will never compare to this blanket. As I wrapped it around myself, years of happiness sprung to my eyes, the pure softness was too much for my mortal body. I was consumed by the ultimate power of this breathtaking blanket, and now it will never leave my side. I cannot let this true beauty go, never." —Mary Maples

50. Twinkle lights that'll make literally any corner of their home look so ✨ magical ✨.

Each fairy light is 16.4 feet long.

Promising review: "OK, so let me just say that these little lights are amazing! I bought them solely based on reviews and hoped for the best. Well, I'm just blown away by how neat these things work! Batteries are not included, so I had to do a store run to fix that. Each string takes three AA batteries and each remote takes a flat watch battery (included!), but it's well worth it! These little guys really put on a show! I love that I have eight different choices for light shows. I also love that there's a timer if I want to use it. I finally have solved the problem of how to light the wreath on my front door without having an ugly cord or using other light sets that eat batteries in a day or so. Trust me, you can NOT go wrong with these things! I've seen similar stings in stores...but without a remote, without the eight light sequence choices, and for a much higher price for just one string! So happy with these. I bought two sets of two, but I may be ordering more. They're that neat!" —Deborah

Promising review: "One of those items I didn’t know I needed until I had it. As a busy mom of two little ones, I can’t even remember the last time I got to finish a hot cup of coffee. Until now! This truly kept my coffee warm for literal hours. And I love the wood grain look of it. It’s nice and doesn’t look cheap at all. I’m going to keep it on my desk for when I’m working, and I’ll never go without hot coffee again!" —ADR80

53. And finally, a KitchenAid 5-quart stand mixer because they've been wanting one of these beauties for years, and don't we think it's time they finally own one? The answer is yes. Yes we do.

A red Kitchenaid mixer on a white kitchen counter
Kitchenaid

Here's why it's worth it: The 5-quart stainless-steel bowl has a convenient handle and is big enough to mix dough for nine-dozen cookies or four loaves of bread in a single batch. The mixer has 59 touch points per rotation around the bowl so your stuff gets mixed real good. It tilts to allow clear access to the bowl and attached beater or whatever accessory you're using. Plus, it'll stir wet or dry ingredients, knead bread dough, and even whip up some cream. The mixer includes coated flat beater, coated dough hook, six-wire whisk, and a one-piece pouring shield. The flat beater and dough hook are dishwasher safe.

Promising review: "This is absolutely perfect for the holidays when making multiple cakes and pies. It mixes batters and doughs with ease. I even throw in chocolate chips in the batter and it mixes those well without crumbling them. The mixer is a bit heavy but this is only a problem if you move it from the counter frequently. I've noticed that my cakes turn out fluffier and more moist when using this mixer compared to other hand mixers. I think this is because the KitchenAid really mixes everything together well. I like that the speed settings are adjustable which is perfect if you want a gentler 'hand mix" or a faster electronic mix. I use this every time I bake" —Jjthejetplane

Shipping info: Shipping takes 5-10 days for delivery after order processing.

Get it from Kitchenaid for $349.99 (originally $429.99, available in 16 colors).
