    1. An extendable phone tripod with a ring light for that special TikTok aficionado you hold close to your heart. This tripod also comes with a remote control that connects to your smartphone, making it ideal for vloggers during solo shoots.

    2. A butterfly growing kit so the aspiring entomologist in your life can have a project that's fun *and* educational. This kit allows them to witness the magical process of metamorphosis — from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly.

    3. A smart fragrance diffuser that connects to your pal's smartphone, so they can choose the intensity of their essential oil diffuser. Your friend NEEDS this if they love fresh scents in their home, but find that most diffusers are just a tad too strong for their sensitive nose.

    4. A Dutch oven your foodie friend will love because they can finally make their own sourdough bread, coq au vin, and even a one-pot casserole.

    5. An all-in-one virtual reality headset for the gamer in your so they life can fully immerse themselves into their play. This VR headset works with video games but also connects to VR YouTube videos and shows for even more virtual fun.

    6. A pair of retro rectangular sunglasses, just in case your giftee is in the market for something that will help them give off some chic, minimalist city vibes.

    7. An insulated Hydro Flask water bottle that keeps water ice-cold for what seems like forever. If your family member is into camping, hiking, or is always on the go, they'll certainly love having this with them.

    8. A pour-over coffee maker so your loved ones can ditch their old-school coffee pot and have a coffee-shop quality cup of joe every morning (for much cheaper).

    9. A pasta maker because nothing beats freshly made pasta, and your foodie friends are sure to agree. This pasta maker can whip up anything from ravioli to fettuccine with just the turn of a crank.

    10. A 6-in-1 indoor grill for the barbeque lover in your life who is saddened by the idea of living in a city apartment where they can't grill freely. With this they'll be able to enjoy making those grilled veggies and ribeyes that they love, and you'll be able to enjoy eating them. Consider this a win-win.

    11. A dartboard so you can "hit the bull's-eye" with the best gift ever. A dart board is pretty much a necessity for the pub- or sports-loving friend in your life.

    12. A smart night-light that does more than just provide a bit of reading light before bedtime. This night-light displays the time, making it easier to keep your phone at bay. Plus, it contains a library of soothing sounds, white noise, and various light settings so you can set the mood before hitting the hay. But the best part? You can personalize it with your own sleep and wake times to ensure your rest cycle is on point every night.

    13. A dreamy olive oil dispenser if your giftee is one step away from having the quaint kitchen of their dreams. Your friend who waxes poetic about freshly sliced prosciutto and juicy burrata probably needs this dispenser to drizzle their charcuterie boards with olive oil.

    14. A cat tree your kitty will love as a gift (yes, animals deserve gifts too) because they'll feel like they're in their natural habitat. They'll love curling up for a nice cat nap during the day and then climbing and jumping all over this baby at three in the morning when you're trying to rest as cats are wont to do.

    15. An indoor herb garden starter set for the at-home chef who's always reaching for different herbs and spices to throw into their meals. This is a great option for people who want an herb garden, but don't have the yard space in their city apartments.

    16. 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.

    17. A set of cute sushi magnets, because who doesn't love seeing their favorite foods BEFORE opening the fridge?! If your giftee isn't a magnets-on-the-fridge type of person, this set also works well with magnetic whiteboards in their office space. So cute!

    18. A lap desk to gift your friend who prefers to WFB (work from bed). This lap desk has cushions to provide comfort for their legs and a mousepad and phone holder to make sure they've got enough space to complete all their tasks for the day.

    19. A set of aesthetically pleasing dual-tip markers that, get this, can diffuse into a watercolor by adding a touch of, you guessed it, water! So whether your giftee is looking to bring out their inner Bob Ross, or they're just looking for a marker-fine-tip pen duo to help them bullet journal, they're sure to thank you immensely for this colorful gift.

    20. And a set of jumbo ice molds for the person you know who is an amateur mixologist. Sure, their cocktails may only see the bar inside their own kitchen — but these large spherical and angular ice cubes will make it look as though their work is world-renowned.
