    Promising review: "I am in LOVE with it!!! This is the cutest little thing! It's the perfect gift for an anniversary or birthday. I 10/10 recommend. I got it for my boyfriend, but I love it so much that I’m going to order myself one." —Tiffany Richardson

    Get it from PhotogiftsGoods on Etsy for $26.25 (available in three colors).

    2. This Mandalorian mood light that'll ~brighten~ the day of any Baby Yoda lover.

    The Baby Yoda-shaped light where the head lights up

    Get it from Toynk for $23.39 (originally $25.99).

    3. This dino-mite taco holder that'll not only ensure the taco-making experience runs without messes, but will also put a smile on your cousin's face every time they use it.

    A green triceratops-shaped figure holding two taco shells on its back

    Promising review: "OK, I realize this is kind of a ridiculous item in theory. More like a gag than an actual useful item, right? Wrong-o! I got one as a present and I loved it so much I had to buy one for my husband because he was envious. First, it's well-made, sturdy plastic so it stays upright and doesn't wobble. Second, it holds two regular-sized crunchy tacos upright and ready to go. This way I can pre-make three tacos, one to eat and two for the dino to hold. The fillings in the dino tacos stay inside the tacos while I am eating the first taco. Juices sink to the bottom where they can soften the fold so the taco shell doesn't break in half after the first bite rather than leaking out all over your plate. Seriously, I love my Triceratacos." —ChristinaG

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three different dinosaur designs).

    4. An out-of-this-world blanket your astrology-loving best friend can snuggle under while reading their horoscope.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this blanket! The fabric is amazingly soft and fluffy. The first thing I did when it arrived was test its glow-ability, lol. I left it sitting under our living room light for about 15 minutes, then took it into a dark room. It really glows brightly! This would make a great gift for any astrology lover. I ordered this one for my mom, but I might be coming back to get another for myself. And let me say it again — it is SO soft!" —makeupguru4u

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    5. This adorably colored air fryer so they can whip up a satisfying snack without the excess oil or grease from deep frying.


    I bought this air fryer in red and now I use it more often than I use the oven! It's hassle-free since I don't have to wait for it to heat up. It typically cooks fries, chicken, and fish faster than the oven would. And, I line the tray with tin foil when I use it so there's virtually no cleanup!

    Promising review: "This is my first experience with an air fryer. I am eating a ketogenic lifestyle and wanted to try fried foods using pork rinds as a crust and this air fryer works perfectly for that. My husband uses it to cook fried chicken. The juices stay inside, and the outside is cooked perfectly with panko or any other coating. It cooks things like bacon and cheesecake, and it can make just about anything that an oven can make, but better and with almost zero cleanups. I love this and have bought another as a gift for my son and daughter-in-law. It does not take up a lot of space on the counter like some of the air fryers I have seen. It's very easy to use and bakes or fries things in about two thirds of the time. It's a wonderful product that I would recommend." —Carla May

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in three colors).

    6. Or a cute lil' waffle stick maker that'll make your siblings nostalgic for their favorite, rippable childhood breakfast.


    Promising review: "I do not normally rave about kitchen appliances but I love this little guy! I impulse bought it after reading some reviews and craving waffles. It seriously is the best waffle maker I have ever used. We had a more expensive one that would flip to cook evenly, but this thing has that beat by a mile. I have used it a dozen times and the waffles come out perfectly every time. I spray it with vegetable oil before pouring in 1/3 cup of batter, and then I set a timer for four minutes. When I am done, I just unplug it and let it cool, then wipe it off with a cloth. I know the color and cartoonish logo may turn some people off, but I seriously recommend this iron to everyone." —leehas

    Get it from Amazon for $20.10.

    7. Or! This Minnie Mouse waffle maker the resident Disney lover will probably want to use 24/7.

    A reviewer showing a waffle in the shape of Minnie Mouse's face

    Promising review: "We had waffles as soon as my niece opened her birthday present. My sister had no problem at all making perfect waffles first time. She just kept checking for doneness. She used a regular pancake mix. The 'finished product' was really cute and tasted great. I don't care how long this lasts. It's darling, and my Mickey-Mouse-loving niece was super thrilled! The waffles were a nice size to serve individually for breakfast alongside our bacon and eggs." —Dawn M Varney

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in two styles).

    8. A scratch-off map so your favorite solo traveler can hang it up and reveal all the countries they've visited.

    Promising review: "I gifted my brother this scratch-off map for Christmas, as he has traveled a lot. It was shipped in a sturdy tube and arrived in good condition. He couldn’t wait to start the process of uncovering all the places he has been. He plans to frame it with no glass so he can continue to reveal locations he travels to." —peggy

    11. This doggone adorable printed water bottle that might actually motivate your friends to stay hydrated during the day.


    Promising review: "This was a gift but I have the same water bottle in a different design. It's the perfect size to carry in my purse, doesn't sweat, and keeps my water cold all day. The cute design is a great way to keep me motivated to hydrate often, and it fits perfectly in car cup holders, too." —Lindsey Olsen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (find other designs on the brand's page).

    12. A dumpling-shaped lamp for the college student to keep on their desk while they study to remind them that their future is quite bright (and delicious).

    Promising review: "OK, so this was waayyy cuter than expected. It's a cool thing to get for a dorm room. Also, it's a very powerful lamp as well, better than most flashlights." —Aarthy

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $16 (available in two colors).

    13. This pretty, pastel-y daily meal planner your favorite chef will use to make grocery store trips and meal prepping SOOO much easier.

    Promising review: "I made a resolution to eat at home more this year. This planner is helping a lot! Everyone in the house likes knowing what's for dinner and I love that it has a built-in shopping list. It makes the week so much less stressful when I have planned out every meal and have all of the ingredients to make it. Looks exactly like the pic, looks cute hanging on the fridge, very happy with this purchase!" —Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three designs).

    14. A Harry Potter coloring book because it's the perfect chill activity for anyone who's still waiting for their Hogwarts acceptance letter.


    Promising review: "My daughter and I are huge Harry Potter fans. When she was little, we would spend hours coloring together. It was one of our things and she loved it. When I saw these coloring books, I had to get them for her 22nd birthday. She absolutely loved the gift. We sit around the house coloring. It reminds us of the good old days. The pictures are pretty cool and fun to color even as an adult." —Corey Turcotte

    Promising review: "I bought a set of these adorable cats for my friend and a set for myself. The suction cups worked well for attaching the cats to my phone. I also attached a couple of them to the inside of my car window. It seems they're quite sturdy. They're certainly cute and colorful." —Julie C

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.59.

    17. Orrrr a set of kitty cat measuring cups that are sure to help them whip up a paw-some batch of cookies when they accurately measure out their ingredients instead of eye-balling them.

The zippers work well, the bow and everything are just as pictured, it has a front pocket, a slim pocket on each side, and the straps are adjustable. The inside of the purse holds my full-sized wallet, iPhone, charger, eyeglasses case, sunglasses, Mio, a bottle of water, Chapstick and lipsticks!! I need another one in another color!!!" —April

    A reviewer showing the pink camera with instant photos of their dogs

    Promising review: "I'd been toying with the idea of getting a Polaroid for a really long time and finally decided to make it a gift to myself. I did not make a mistake! I ADORE this camera and so does everyone else around me. It's the envy of the town, lol. People are always asking me to take pics. The quality is SUPERB. Extremely artistic, clear images come from this tiny thing. I'm thoroughly impressed and happy all around. It's really easy to use, the directions are straightforward, and the best part about it is that it shows you what setting it needs to be based on the sensors for light (i.e. in a house, in the sunshine, in shade, and so on). I have no complaints!" —Jess

    The backless mules in black with a large black bow on top

    Promising review: "These are very cute and sassy. I think these look good and fit nicely. The toe area actually fits and is easy to walk in — sometimes these are super wide so they lose a bit of the fun look. They can dress up a pair of jeans or be worn with a dress or skirt. They are surprisingly versatile." —Shannon Zolar

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90 (available in sizes 6–8 and in four colors).
