    4. Cute, vacation-y luggage tags because the family who travels together stays together.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three designs).

    5. Sheet masks infused with fruit extract so the workaholic in your life has no excuse to not give themselves a little spa break now.


    Promising review: "I got these as a gift to split between two people and kept two for myself. Not only are these a steal, but I also really loved using them! The smells are nice and they feel really good. They even fit my face almost perfectly. Not too long not too wide. I put one on while I watched my favorite YouTubers ☺👌Oh, and there's enough serum left in the pouch that you could refrigerate it and use the mask a second time or just use the serum as a moisturizer!" —Taylor

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $10.98 (available as a pack of 20).

    6. A unicorn-inspired makeup brush set for the beauty obsessive who wants to go from bare-skinned to dolled-up in two shakes of a unicorn's tail.


    Promising review: "I cannot wait to use these brushes! They are gorgeous! Absolutely stunning. I love unicorns and holographic things so these are perfect! The brush bristles are extremely soft! Hands down one of the softest I own. The handles are long and thin seem great for application. The case is holographic pink and of great quality. The Velcro on it seems a little cheap but it sticks so no complaints. I definitely recommend this item. They would make an awesome gift." —Pb&nelly

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    7. Anti-Chafe balm that'll make the recipient thank you for solving all their blister and chafing problems.


    Promising review: "Omg this stuff is the best! I am a chubby girl and I recently went to Thailand where it was 90° with a 70% humidity every single day I was there. This stuff got me through! I was able to wear dresses and shorts with no chafing! And I only ever had to apply in the morning and once in the middle of the day! My life is forever changed I’ve already ordered two more!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 0.8-, 1.5-, and 2.5-oz tubes, and packs of two 1.5- and 2.5-oz tubes).

    8. A cuuuute set of silicone straws because they're so convenient that they may convince just about anyone to start using them for all their drinks.


    Promising review: "We are trying to stop using single-use straws, so I have been hunting for a good alternative. There are basically a few different types. Stainless steel, glass, and silicone. The stainless steel straws are too thin and require too much effort to use. The glass ones were nice but mine broke relatively quickly. So I found these silicone straws. These were cheap and work better than expected. They are rigid enough to use in a cup, but remain flexible. They come with a nice storage bag so they can be carried along with you. They're easy to clean — just use the brush they come with and very hot water. The large ones are the best and fit perfectly in my double-walled cups. I will be buying additional sets to use! Save the environment while sipping on a cold beverage!!!" —Doug

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $7.99.

    9. Fancy-looking pearl hair clips they will think you paid at least a hundred bucks for.


    Promising review: "I would highly recommend these. They got here very quickly and were packed with extra bubble wrap to protect them. They look just like the photos, which I love! As long as you are careful with them, I think they will last for a long time. I bought these to complete an outfit for a dance showcase, and they seem very sturdy and like they will stay put in my semi-thin hair. Good price and definitely a must buy." —Jillian

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $5.99.

    10. A set of teeny, tiny sprout bookmarks that'll make the bookworm in your life want to keep growing their collection of reads, just so they can use these all the time.


    Promising review: "I first saw these bookmarks in a museum store and thought they were adorable! I decided to buy them on Amazon because they were a much better price (don't worry, I'd already spent plenty of money on other items to support the arts in the museum store!) I collect unique bookmarks from all over to add character to the shelves of my library, so I had to have these! I love how these are soft (like real leaves) and can either be folded within the pages or be placed in by only the stem so it looks like a sprout sticking out of the book." —Sarah Pesha

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $8.06 (also available as four-leaf clovers).

    11. Color-changing lip balm that adjusts to the pH of your lips to give you the perfect shade of pink. It'll mesmerize even the biggest makeup mavens.


    Promising review: "I love this lip gloss!! It's my new favorite! It changes to the perfect pink based on your skin tones. It's not as sparkly as I thought it would be but I think I like that. Definitely recommend." —Andrew Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $13.60+ (available in unicorn and gold).

    12. A sterling silver wave ring that's perfect for the friend who's always down for a trip to the beach. This way, they can always have a little piece of the ocean with them.

    Promising review: "I'm pleasantly surprised! The ring is lovely and well-made. I bought this to give as a gift to my beach-loving friend. I will definitely buy more to give as gifts." —John Burke

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in sizes 2–13 and in four finishes).

    13. Adorable tea diffusers they will never leaf in the back of the cupboard to collect dust.


    Promising review: "My sister collects swans, and this item was perfect! It is very well-made with attention to detail and is as cute as can be. The quality is excellent. It floats perfectly in an ordinary cup, and looks adorable." —DJ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available as a swan, unicorn, or flamingo).

    14. A set of spa headbands your friends will for sure break out at the next sleepover while y'all do face masks, drink wine, and watch the new season of the The Bachelor.


    Promising review: "I was hesitant to purchase this, as I have a large head, which usually makes things like hats, headbands, etc. very tricky to buy. This product, however, is just what I was looking for! I used it today to keep my hair out of my face while doing a full face of makeup, and in the shower to make sure the hair around my scalp did not get damp. It did the job both times, and fits perfectly (about halfway on the velcro)! The material is soft, almost fleece-like, but did not make me hot/sweaty. I definitely recommend it!" —Gab03

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $7.89.

    15. Some velvet hair scrunchies because not only will they not snag anyone's hair, but they also make a cute accessory to wear on your wrist when not in use. Gotta love multi-use gifts.


    Promising review: "These arrived quickly as promised and my 11-year old daughter was thrilled! There are so many different colors in different shades and they are strong enough for her very thick, curly hair, which is super important! It's a great value and I will probably order again as gifts since her friends really like them, too." —DiG

    Get a set of 20 from Amazon for $5.99.

    16. A silicone snowflake ice tray so your siblings will have snow excuse not to make you a fun frozen hot chocolate this winter. So when you think about it, it's kind of also a gift for yourself, too.


    Promising review: "I love the shape of snowflakes already. These form strong, thick ice cubes that don’t break when you pop them out of the container. They're very cute and enjoyable to see in a drink! I'm a happy customer." —Dawn West

    Get it from Amazon for $7.96 (also available as fish, duck, and pound symbol ice trays).

    17. Or, a silicone dachshund ice tray mold — that's also perfect for doggie-shaped chocolates!!! — for your wiener dog-obsessed best friend (@ my friends reading this post, ME. I'm that wiener dog-obsessed best friend).


    BTW, you can remove the tray from its packaging and roll it up to get it to fit in the stocking!

    Promising review: "These are the CUTEST ice cubes I’ve ever seen!!! I love them so much. Since it's a silicone tray, it’s hard for me to carry it to the freezer without spilling a little, but they’re still amazing and it doesn’t really change much for me. I get compliments on them all the time and people ask where I got the tray. They’re super easy to get out of the tray, too. It's definitely worth the cost." —April Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    18. Or! A dachshund-esque corkscrew your favorite pup parent can use to pop open a bottle of dry red while they snuggle with their pooch.


    Promising review: "I got this for my boss who has and loves dachshunds, but like most dachshund moms, she already had every gift under the sun with the wiener dog pattern all over it. Luckily, not only did she love this, but she also said she had never seen it before. And that's how I got the huge promotion. Just kidding. But she does like me better than the rest of the team now." —N. Krizman

    Get it from Amazon for $15.79 (also available as a paperclip-shaped corkscrew).

    19. Or (!!!) a set of dachshund-inspired keychains that are so doggone adorable they'll reach for them every single day and never forget their keys at home again.


    Promising review: "I purchased these adorable keychains as a gift for one of my best friends who's an avid dachshund lover. She loved them and said they were beautiful and very nice quality. She is going to be using them on her handbags to add a little bling." —Tami Jo Negrete

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $8.99.

    20. A stainless steel hair tie bracelet for the friend who's ALWAYS asking you to borrow a hair tie because they can't seem to find their own.


    Promising review: "This has changed my world! Seriously, I never knew these things existed until a girl on my recent vacation showed me one she wore. I always, always have a hairband around my wrist when one is not in my hair, so hooray for no more marks on my wrist from ones that are too tight!! I have pretty small wrists and this one definitely fits me perfectly. I bought a rose gold band for my Fitbit and wear them together, so this does not move around at all." —ST

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $13.66 (available in gold, silver, and rose gold, and in five different engraved quote options).

    21. A pair of super sparkly earrings that'll make anyone starstruck upon seeing. This is one gift they'll definitely be thrilled to show off at the next family holiday party.


    Promising review: "These earrings are gorgeous. They went perfectly with my gown. They are just the right size and weight. I didn’t feel them all night. I’m allergic to nickel and had no issues with these earrings." —Olivia @fit4apear

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98 (available in silver, gold, gold and silver, rose gold, and a set of silver, gold, and rose gold studs).

    22. OR, a pair of unicorn poop earrings that are a helluva lot better than giving your bratty cousin coal for Christmas (and more fashionable, too).


    Promising review: "Not going to lie, when my husband told me he ordered our 7-year-old daughter 'poop earrings' I was pretty sure they were going to end up in the trash once they came in the mail. No way am I letting my daughter walk around with fecal matter hanging from her ear lobes. However, these came and I instantly loved them. They are so adorable, and that's a word I never thought I'd use when describing a piece of poop. She gets compliments on them all the time and they are now her favorite earrings (yay, dad). They are a nice size and made very well." —Kayla

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    23. Hermione's time turner necklace from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban so the HP fan in your life can travel backwards and give themselves a liiiittle more time to finish gift shopping.


    Promising review: "This has great quality and looks just like the time turner from the movies. It was a wonderful gift!" —Nick H.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in black, blue, orange, yellow, and purple sand).

    24. A zodiac-inspired ring dish for the person in your friend group who makes sure everyone knows when Mercury is retrograde. This is a pretty cute (and useful) way to thank us for our service, TBH.


    Promising review: "I love this. It was exactly what I needed. I wanted something cute to catch any bobby pins lying around my bathroom, and this was a perfect match! I also am thinking about giving these to my friends as their Christmas gifts!" —Rachel G

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98 (available in all 12 zodiac signs).

    25. A deck of cat-tastic tarot cards that'll provide your cat-loving recipient with hours of endless fun. Oh, BTW, I think I see a new kitten in your future. The cards have spoken.


    Promising review: "These cards are great! As someone who owns more than a couple of tarot decks, the cardstock on these is superb for the price. This deck is friendly and has a very aesthetically pleasing color palette — even some of the darker cards of the deck are rather light-hearted. The images themselves are fantastic, cute, colorful without overdoing it, and harmonious. And, for the most part, they are true to the traditional tarot and aren't too gimmicky. My only gripe is that the images don't always lend themselves to intuitive interpretation, however, this deck comes with a guidebook so it's not that big of a turnoff. The guidebook itself is great and includes interpretations for upright and reversed cards." —A. Asher

    Get it from Amazon for $17.96.

    26. Some aromatherapy bath bombs made with essential oils and shea butter so they can finally have a ~luxurious~ spa day without actually spending money at the spa.


    The bath bombs come in six unique scents, and are individually wrapped so you can stick 'em in everyone's stockings without making a mess!

    Promising review: "I am in love with these bath bombs! I continue to order these very frequently. They smell really amazing and you feel really amazing after using them. They are ALWAYS delivered when they say they will be delivered —they're never late. They are like six heavenly gems in a box! I can't say enough about them!!! With Xmas around the corner, they make the perfect gift! Thanks, ArtNaturals!" —justnyo17

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $11.95.

    27. Burt's Bees lip balm even the pickiest person in your family will appreciate, if only for the ah-mazing scents and nourishing hydration.


    Promising review: "I have been using this for well over a decade. I've tried many, many other lip balms and treatments but continue to go back to this — my holy grail! It has a thick consistency and stays on much longer than others. The refreshing peppermint is soothing when my lips are cracked and painful. This multipack is the best value I have found. I keep one in my bathroom, bedroom, purse, and kitchen. I use it every single night before going to bed and wake up with improved lips. They get very chapped during the winter. I can't be without it!" —Jhall626

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.57 (available in Beeswax, Coconut & Pear, Cucumber Mint, Honey, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Vanilla Bean, Superfruit, and the Fall variety pack).

    28. A Yankee Candle car vent clip to make your dad feel like he's on vacation coasting along a beachside highway instead of stuck in traffic on his way to the office.


    Promising review: "The MidSummer's Night vent clip has a manly cologne smell in a good way, and that's what I like about it. Women that were never in my car before are like wow what kind of cologne do you have on, it smells so good! if it were men's cologne it would be extremely popular!" —M C

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99 (available in 21 scents and also available as a car vent stick).

    29. A grooming brush any parent of a fur baby will jump up and down upon receiving because it'll make grooming SO much easier, and make their pet feel like they're in heaven.


    The brush can be used on dogs and cats and gently removes tangles, knots, and loose hairs without scratching your pet. Plus, owners can easily remove trapped hair with the push of a button.

    Promising review: "My big, ol’ boy cat demands lots of attention so he was in seventh heaven with being brushed. He’s not really long-haired, but he has a very dense coat and this brush reached all the way through. I had probably only brushed him with three strokes when he began drooling. It was adorable that he was enjoying it so much. He liked the feel and I like the push-button clean up." —S. Claypool

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in blue and pink).

    30. Solid cologne that's the perfect size for smelling good on the go.


    Promising review: "I've been experimenting with different solid colognes for a while now. This is one of the best I've found, and for the price, you simply can't beat it. The scent is a very mellow, aged tobacco and vanilla smell with a hint of spice, and has good projection without being overpowering. I was very impressed with the staying power, as it lasted for a good six to eight hours after application. It's quickly becoming one of my favorites, and I highly recommend it." —Josiah W

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    31. A silicone pot clip so they will stop getting crabby when dirty spoons on the counter leave a huge mess.


    Promising review: "This is super cute and an excellent stocking stuffer or small gift. I ordered a second one for myself." —Amandamary0689

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90.

    32. A set of wine condoms that may make gift time with the family a little awkward at first, but then everyone will have a good laugh when they realize how perfect they are for protecting a bottle of pinot noir from going bad.


    Proming review: "These are so good that I had to buy two sets! Not only are these wine condoms a gift that people will talk about, but they're also a responsible way to keep your wine sealed between drinks. First and foremost, they're reusable. I do want to note though that, like any other condom, a wine condom will break if you're too rough with it. However, if you use common sense while putting one on the bottle and don't try to overstretch it, I doubt you'll have any problems (I haven't had any so far). Personally, I prefer using these over traditional corks when storing white wine because I can keep my bottles sideways in the fridge without fear of any spillage. I also want to note that these Wine Condoms are socially conscious: when I received my package, I also received a note stating that a portion of my purchase had gone toward providing clean water for those in need. They're definitely worth the purchase from a great company!" —Samantha

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $13.97.

    33. 24k gold undereye masks that may be small but pack a hydrating punch thanks to the snail slime formula. They might honestly start glowing simply from the excitement of being gifted these.


    Promising review: "This is a miracle, OMG. I had suffered for nearly two months from an allergic reaction and went seeking a cure. I FOUND IT with this product. I applied four patches — two under my eyes and two on my eyelids. When I removed them an hour later, I was STUNNED. I looked like myself again. Who knew snail slime was my MIRACLE? I am going to buy more ASAP." —Gio2020

    Get a set of 30 from Amazon for $15.99 (also available as a collagen mask and hyaluronic acid mask).

    34. A silicone, heat-resistant mat for the person who just got gifted a new curling iron for the holidays., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love it!! I received a hair iron wand for the holidays and needed something to rest my iron on so I didn’t burn my furniture. This has been perfect! It matches the blush rose color of my hair iron perfectly. I love that I can also wrap it around my wand and secure it for travel. It doesn't have a sticky feeling, it bends very easily, is lightweight, and it doesn't have a strong door. I definitely recommend it!" —Paul

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three colors).

    35. Tiny hedgehog decorations perfect for the budding plant mom or dad who wants to add an ~adorable~ touch to their potted plants.


    Promising review: "I was very impressed with these tiny hedgehogs. Usually, with something of this nature, the painting of little faces and/or details is iffy at best, but these were quite well done and therefore quite adorable. My granddaughter has a hedgehog as a pet and, like her Nana, is now putting together fairy gardens. I shared these with her and she and I were both delighted with how cute they look in our respective fairy gardens. I highly recommend them!" —DLNH

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $2.40.

    36. A handmade sunflower brooch to let your sibling know that you admire their ~sunny~ personality.


    Promising review: "Very, very nice. The brooch is a beautifully hand-painted, delicate lapel or collar pin that will evoke those late summer days when sunflowers nod their sunny heads as they turn to watch you walk into the garden to choose a basket full of fresh vegetables for your family’s supper. There are old fashioned, poignant memories in this finely-etched, painted little pin." —B.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    37. An Almay Shadow Squad Eye Shadow Palette so they can literally have an entire eye look in one convenient little palette.


    Promising review: "I started seeing these quads all over and finally got curious. This was my first palette and I've bought three more since. The pigmentation is great and I love all four finishes in one little case. I love the shimmer/metallic finishes for my kids in the gold shade — it is gorgeous!" —Malinda

    Get it from Amazon for $5.35 (available in 15 colors).

    38. Beautiful wool socks that are almost as warm as the hug you're gonna get from whoever pulls these out of their stockings.


    Promising review: "I got these for a couple for Christmas. It's great because they can match without having to match completely. They're very gender neutral so they are great for all ages and genders. They fit well and keep feet warm without making them sweat." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pair of four from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 16 different variety packs).

    39. And, a pair of boot cuffs to really add a little pep in the step of the family member who'd wear riding boots year-round if they could.


    Promising review: "These are absolutely perfect! I needed cuffs for my Hunter rain boots and I was going to buy the Hunter brand ones but I saw bad reviews that said that they are too hot and overpriced. I saw these and took a chance. I was a little skeptical but they were exactly what I needed and I got five for not even the price of one that I originally was gonna buy. I never, ever rate products but this was a must. I definitely recommend them! Thank you so much!!" —Brendelyn Lora

    Get them from Amazon for $6.98 (available in five colors and 11 styles).
