    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.

    amazon.com

    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 that'll give the students and WFH professionals you know 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.

    amazon.com

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

    amazon.com

    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: $89.99

    4. 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.

    5. 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

    6. A 29-piece grooming kit for the person in your life who seems to spend every other day at the barber shop. This kit is perfect for all your face, head, and body grooming needs.

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

    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

    8. 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.

Will be reordering for all the creatives in my family." —Elizabeth Traub Consulting

    Promising review: "So I bought this for a friend's Christmas gift so the next time the two of us and a couple of our other friends got together we could play this. Yesterday we finally played this game and I give this five stars for the fun we had and the panic-inducing anxiety we got from the sheer fact that we played some risky moves. When my one friend finally knocked it over and released us from our anxious, panic-filled, sweat-filled mood, we all felt a sense of relief as we started again. Thank you, Jenga, for giving my friends and me a fun-filled two hours of sheer fun torture." —Sarah

    Price: $10.27

    12. A color-changing blush oil that sold out shortly after launching on Amazon, and for good reason, too. This TikTok cult-favorite blush oil is green upon application and adjusts to the perfect shade of pink for your specific skin tone. Oh, and since it's an oil, this blush adds a dewy glow to your complexion almost instantly.

    Promising review: "I had one of these years ago and remembered the pleasure it gave me — goosebumps! Saw this and noted it had 20 'fingers' so chose it over cheaper ones. Unless you absolutely hate having your scalp massaged, I highly recommend this! It makes an awesome gift, too. I had to buy a second one the same day mine arrived for my roommate. Well made. Buy yourself one!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $10.99 (originally $11.90)

    Promising review: "We received this as a gift and we have been playing nonstop. It's a great dartboard that seems to stay nice no matter how much you play. It has been a great addition to our house and it is always a big hit when people come over. We have never had an issue of darts bouncing out like they do with the plastic boards. To keep track of scoring, we just downloaded an app on our phone that works great. Definitely worth it." —Rachel

    Price: $78.81 (originally $89.99)

    16. A putting green, because the one thing your golfer buddy wants this season is something that will help them with their short game. This is great for pros but also acts as a fun at-home mini-golf setup.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this for my husband to use at his gym. He’s a fitness conditioning coach to professional and amateur golfers. This has been so fun for his young golfers, he utilizes this as a part of their exercise. He has them play a game — the loser has to do an extra workout. Great product, made well, and fun for all ages!" —Jessie

    Price: $135.19 (originally $159.99)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Got this for my boyfriend so he would drink more water. It worked! I still have to hound him sometimes but I think this is the best water bottle I could have picked out. I have one as well and the water will stay incredibly cold no matter where you store the bottle. Mine has lasted two years so far and they’re super fun to put stickers on and decorate." —Jill

    Price: $43.81+ (available in 16 colors)

    18. A magnetic tile-building kit so that the little tikes around you can tap into their creative side and build buildings, bridges, really whatever they have in mind. Who knows, maybe this gift will inspire them to be the next Frank Lloyd Wright.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Got these for our nephew for his third birthday and it was his favorite gift! He wanted to open it right away and play. Totally worth the money!" —Cady

    Price: $49.99

    19. A pair of fuzzy slippers, because what's better than being gifted a pair of fuzzy, warm slippers? Being gifted a pair of fuzzy, warm slippers that has a secure ankle strap, that's what.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These were a birthday gift for my little sister and she loved them! She wears them almost every day — she loves the color, I believe the one I got her was sort of coral and light pink. They’re so adorable makes me want to get a pair myself honestly! Overall just happy she loves them so much." —Kaylah

    Price: $59.95+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 43 colors)

    20. And a Dutch oven so that your foodie friend can finally make their own sourdough bread, coq au vine, and even a one-pot casserole. This would certainly have Julia Child wondering, where can I get one of those?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for Christmas for my daughter and son-in-law. I did a lot of research before I made my purchase. I decided to buy this one and was so pleased that I did. The quality was as good as some of the more expensive competitors. My daughter loved the color. She called me to let me know that they had used it and loved it. They said that it was easy to clean and still looked nice and white." —CB

    Price: $79.90 (available in four sizes and in 15 colors)
