    1. A mini fridge, because some skincare products, like hydrating serums, sheet masks, and gua sha tools work best when kept at a colder temperature. Consider this for the skincare-loving person in your life.

    Promising review: "I’m in love with this! I’ve recently been getting into skin care. Having cold product to put on your face is so soothing/relaxing. Takes skincare to the next level. I bought a second one for my friend as a gift. She is equally obsessed!" —Christina W.

    Price: $49.99 (available in seven colors)

    2. A colorful wireless keyboard and mouse set so that the students and WFH professionals you know can have the perfect office setup for typing away all day long. Plus, this keyboard mimics a typewriter, which is great for those who enjoy listening to ASMR sounds while they work.

    This set includes one wireless keyboard and one wireless mouse.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this keyboard — it is a gift for my mom. The keys are a bit small but after using it for a while you'll definitely get used to it. I originally wanted the keyboard with all white keys but it sold out the second I was ready to buy it." —Jannelle

    Price: $43.89 (available in 12 colors)

    3. A Sriracha mug to give to the person who puts Sriracha on everything. This mug holds 19 ounces of fluid, which is perfect for those who need multiple cups of coffee or tea in the morning.

    Promising review: "My son loves Sriracha. He has since he was itty-bitty. Along the way, I began looking for something to tuck into his Christmas stocking each year. He loves his mug so much that he took it to his restaurant with him. Now he and his sous chef have a competition each day to get the mug first!" —Jules

    Price: $16.99

    4. A Fitbit Versa 3, so that the person you know who is always on the go can rest assured that they have all the things they need right on their wrist. Of course, this smartwatch tells the time, but it also lets its wearer know how many steps they've taken, their heart rate, their sleep patterns, and more. Plus, it gives a little nudge to remind them to get up and moving if they've been lounging around for too long.

    Promising review: "An elderly man I know was routinely walking but when his ultra-budget smartwatch stopped working he stopped walking. So his daughter asked if I could buy her dad a nice one. I sent him this as a gift and he absolutely loves it. He started walking again the very day he received it." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $228.95 (available in four colors)

    5. A 145-piece art set with crayons, oil pastels, colored pencils, watercolor cakes, and more, because the gift of colorful creativity is one of the best presents anyone can receive.

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful set to give as a gift or for yourself. I am a seasoned artist and needed a sturdy portable set to practice while on the road, traveling, or use outside my art studio. Wowsers!! The value for the money I paid is over the top. Will be reordering for all the creatives in my family." —Elizabeth Traub Consulting

    Price: $29.99+ (available in three carrying case colors)

    6. A waterproof cleansing brush to help your skincare-loving friends scrub every last bit of debris from their skin. This brush is made of antimicrobial silicone, which ensures an effective yet gentle exfoliation process that won't ever tear at the skin or spread bacteria.

    Promising review: "I can tell a major difference since I started using this tool. My skin is much more clear. You can tell its providing a deeper clean and you can feel the freshness after using. Can use it in or out of the shower. Perfect size for traveling. Considering giving these as a bday/holiday gifts to some of my girlfriends." —Landa

    Price: $19.99 (available in two colors)

    7. A mini projector so that you can give the gift of endless streaming to the cinephile who you hold close to your heart.

    Promising review: "Bought it for my boyfriend for our one year anniversary so we could watch movies because we're homebodies and it works absolutely amazing. The clarity is really good for the price, super easy to hook up and use with any device. Audio isn’t mind blowing, but it’s pretty decent, could probably hook up some other audio output to make it better if you have one. All in all it’s great and an amazing price for such a great quality projector." —shaytann

    Price: $79.99

    8. A mini Japanese rock garden for your busy friend who sometimes needs to zen out during a hectic workday. How does it work, you ask? Simply drag the rake across the sand and when complete, arrange the stones and decorative accessories in a way that looks most appealing and calming to you.

    9. An extra-large Appa plush pillow so that the biggest Avatar: The Last Airbender in your life can finally fall fast asleep with the coziest fictional character there ever was.


    Just so you know, this isn't a plush toy, but a plush pillow! It may seem flatter than a stuffed toy, but that's just because it's meant for resting your head on at the end of the day.

    Promising review: "I love it! I’ve been waiting for this jumbo version of Appa to get in-stock on Amazon forever. It’s even better than I expected. I highly recommend it to any Avatar fan or just someone who wants a big pillow to sleep on." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $79.99

    10. A 3-quart fondue pot set that you can gift to that friend who just loves The Melting Pot. They can use it with cheese, chocolate, and even broth during Saturday night dinners that you'll hopefully be invited to.

    This set includes a 3-quart fondue pot and 6 color-coded fondue forks.

    Promising review: "Melty cheese and chocolate is such a fun way to get the family together for an evening! I had gifted a different set to my sister for Christmas and my spouse got jealous so I had to get us one and this one looked great. It is! The nonstick bottom made cleaning up some slightly burned cheese a breeze. The temp controls are easy to keep what you're melting. And my family absolutely loves dipping food in melted food now and maybe having some good conversation while doing so." —eSTee

    Price: $38.31

    11. A moon lamp, so that the astrology lover in your life can fall asleep to the soft light of the full moon every night. This lamp has an array of color settings and lighting strengths to provide the perfect mood every evening.,

    Promising review: "This is the perfect little lamp and it’s so surreal! You actually feel mesmerized when you look at it —it’s like the moon is really there in your hands! Perfect gift for anyone you love." —Ashley Nicole

    Price: $19.99+ (available in seven sizes)

    12. A Brita filtering water bottle, because your hiking friend needs a water filter in their backpack when gathering a drink from a creek. Why not get one in their favorite color while you're at it?

    Promising review: "Best bottle EVER! I have two, my daughter has one, and I bought one as a gift! This bottle goes everywhere with us. It has never leaked. I love the push button flip top and the built in super at the top! We use our bottles daily. With the filter we noticed the difference in the taste of the town water immediately. There was no longer the metal old taste when using this bottle with the filter. We use ours mostly from the faucets inside of a school building and now it’s like we just grabbed water from a spring! These are so easy to clean! We use a straw brush to get inside of the filter and straw area. We will buy these from now on!" —JP

    Price: $19.90+ (available in two sizes and five colors)

    13. A massage gun so that your fitness buddy can properly loosen up all the kinks in their muscles from intense workouts. This massage gun has 10 different head attachments that are great for either a light massage or a pin-pointed myofascial release session.,

    This set includes one massage gun, 10 head attachments, one rechargeable lithium battery, one carrying case, and a user manual.

    Promising review: "I got one for myself and my boyfriend who is fairly active. We're not always around to massage each other, plus you can only ask for so much before someone gets tired. I bought this mainly for my legs, but it has been a great tool to massage sore arms, feet, and the back if someone's available to do that for you. I enjoyed it so much that I gifted my parents one of these too." —Audrey

    Price: $54.99

    14. A facial steamer to help your skincare bestie get every bit of gunk from their pores whenever they please.

    Promising review: "This is the GREATEST product ever. I bought it for my daughter (secretly bought it for myself). I love how it feels and it is so relaxing. I use it almost every night. It helps relax me and makes my skin feel really good. I wish the water container held more water so I could use it longer! It is amazing." —Belly Laugh Living

    Price: $58.19 (originally $99.99)

    15. A Waterpik water flosser, because the gift of immaculate dental hygiene is one worth giving. This machine uses pressurized water to get rid of every last speck of plaque from even the hardest-to-each areas of your mouth. Oh, and it's great for those with braces, too!

    Promising review: "Purchased as a gift but the feedback from the person I purchased this for couldn't be happier! He LOVE'S it very much and was very well worth every cent! I would recommend anyone looking for a reliable easy to use multi-use trimmer to invest in this and save all that $$$ at the barbershop!" —Kristine

    Price: $95.95 (originally $119.99)

    17. An analog audio mixer to help your audiophile friend mix their next hit single or to start the music career they always dreamed of.

    Promising review: "A great mixer at a great price. I've been performing professionally for over 35 years and have always prided myself on having the best and most reliable gear. I heard a buddy using this at a gig. I was surprised by how great it sounded with no hiss or noise. I've been using mine for over five years. It's dependable, easy to use with good effects." —BluesPiano88

    Price: $99

    18. A set of bath bombs, because what's better than ending the day with a bath? Ending a day with a bath bomb bath, that's what. Consider this for the wellness aficionado in your life who is always looking to up their self-care routine.

    Promising review: "So the women in my life love these. They're a staple gift for almost every holiday (Christmas, Valentines, etc). They're a family owned company who has great customer service and follow up, but that's not the best part, the product is. My girls (girlfriend and daughter) love bath bombs and have tried a lot of them, but these are the ones they now use exclusively now. The only two negative things about them is that 1. If you gift them they will know, the smell gives away the greatness. 2. Once you give them to her you will be expected to keep the supply train coming, but at the price point on Amazon it's a super easy holiday gift to stay in the winner's circle with the women you love the most." —Greg_i2003

    Price: $26.80

    19. A pour-over coffee maker so that your loved ones can ditch their old-school coffee pot and have a coffee-shop quality cup of joe every morning.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my mother, since she likes to drink coffee but the coffee at stores is a bit expensive. She says the coffee that she makes with this pour-over coffee maker tastes pretty good and the filter does a decent job of filtering out the grounds (although you might want to purchase paper filters if you want that super-filtered coffee). The design is simple and elegant, and I think it looks good in our home. The glass also feels very sturdy and durable." —Ashley

    Price: $19.99

    20. And a pair of retro aviator sunglasses for your stylish friend who is always on trend. These glasses come in a variety of colors, so consider getting one for yourself, too.

    Promising review: "I ordered these sunglasses because my sunglasses broke. I saw these while searching and they were a great buy. And I have been wearing them for about a month. I like the protection from the sun when I wear them and I just like the look of them when I wear them. Very nice sunglasses especially for the money." —SKM

    Price: $12.98 (available in 18 colors)
