I am looking forward to bringing it on my travels in the very near future as this would be great to be hands free when carrying other things around.

    Promising review: "Pros: 1) Entertainment: the puzzle wound up being somewhat of "history" lesson since a number of the events on the puzzle I didn't recognize and ended up researching. 2) Difficulty: the difficulty level was perfect- the 1,000 pieces made it a multi-week after work project that I genuinely looked forward to. 3) Graphics: the pictures themselves are BEAUTIFUL and the artist is very talented. Cons: None!"—Savannah Banana

    Get it from Amazon for $20.39 .

    5. And a wooden puzzle plateau to be the perfect work surface for their new puzzle hobby. With four sliding drawers for organization and storage, they'll be an expert puzzler in no time.


    Promising review: "The quality of the workmanship is excellent and you would pay a carpenter a lot for something similar. We had considered trying to make one, but from a time and cost perspective, this product is highly effective."—Donald

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99.

    6. Or a puzzle rolling mat for quickly rolling up their works in progress. Puzzles are fun, but messes are not!


    Promising review: "In the past I would do puzzles in a poster board and store it in an extra room, but sometimes the puzzle broke apart and is lose pieces and storing it flat out took up so much room that I no longer have, so this was a must have! Now, I just set up a card table in my living room and do my puzzles on this mat when I feel like it and when I'm tired of puzzling it out I just roll it up out of the way and tuck it into the corner of a closet! This mat also allows me to take as long as I want to complete a puzzle, because some days you just feel like doing something different, you know? Very happy, I wish I had gotten one a long time ago and I would have never suffered lost or chewed-up pieces."—Hannah

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

The book itself is beautiful too. Everything from the photos to the design are so well done. The shopping lists at the end are also so helpful. Thanks, Goodful!"—Alana

    Get it from Amazon for $19.32.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this! My entire family (with the exception of my husband, who doesn't like spice) reaches for this bottle of Mike's many times a week. We've tried it on biscuits, cornbread, fried chicken, bacon (AMAZING), and more. Mike's offers just the right kick of heat to balance the delicious sweetness of the honey. I plan on keeping this in my pantry." —MichiganTraveler

    9. A pair of high-waisted leggings that'll be the most soft, comfortable, and opaque pair they own. They're gonna write a thank you letter to Santa immediately!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I never take the time to write reviews — and I purchase half of everything we buy on Amazon. However, as a former LLR obsessed mom of two toddlers, I felt called to make time to review these leggings. If you are reading this and wondering how these compare to LLR leggings, I am here to tell you I am confident LLR is ripping loyal customers off by charging $25-30+. These leggings are just as soft. They fit the same, if not better. They do NOT PILL if you wash cold and hang dry. I truly feel like I’m wearing 'butter leggings' or 'like I’m naked' or whatever other claims LLR makes. The price is obviously better and more fair in my opinion."—Jen Wolfe

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two sizes: "one size" (fits S–L) and "plus size" (fits XL–3X) and 22 colors).

    10. A pack of Dermal Full Face Sheet Masks to elevate anyone's Saturday night to a luxurious one whether you're on your couch with a cold beer or in a bubble bath forgetting the work week ahead.,

    These Dermal face masks (made with Vitamin E and collagen) are the perfect way to unwind after a long, stressful day and brighten your skin at the same time. Each mask has a unique fragrance, including wine, green tea, and pomegranate.

    Promising review: "I've been using these masks for about a year, and I LOVE them. They're so cheap, but they work well. If you've never tried sheet masks before or are trying to find a cheap option so you can do them more often, these are a great option. They DO contain fragrance, but it's pretty much last on the ingredients list, and they've never irritated my skin and my skin is pretty sensitive and I have mild rosacea. I find the scent to be pleasant; each one has a slightly different scent."—Bonnie

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $13.99.

    11. A BuzzFeed Good Advice Cupcake talking figurine and paperback illustrated book to remind your gift recipient of all the funny and relatable things that this beloved animated food has to offer.

    12. A computer desk with storage so you can carve out a necessary work space to accomplish all of those 2020 goals you just set.

    Promising review: "I cannot describe how much I love these cat butt magnets; they are beyond words. Aside from the ones for myself, I bought a set of these for my friends, my ex-roommate, and sister. They all love them."—LEW

    Get them from Amazon for $17 (available in five designs).

    14. I Could Pee On This: And Other Poems by Cats, a collection of poems for anyone who has been dying to know how cats really feel about the world.

    Promising review: "Just received this today and have already finished it, wiping the tears of laughter as I went along. This is the perfect gift for the cat lover in your life, although it isn't necessary to be one to find the book thoroughly delightful and laugh-out-loud funny. Kudos to Francesco Marciuliano and his brilliant wit. He has a fan for life!"—KJ

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    15. A cold-brew iced coffee maker, because their love for an icy caffeine fix is real and Starbucks is getting too expensive.


    Simply add your favorite ground beans into the center filter (it's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe), add hot water, and place in the fridge for the next time you're craving a (not $5) cup of delicious cold brew.

    Promising review: "I have been drinking Dunkin' Donuts coffee every day for over 10 years. At $2.75 a coffee, that adds up. Trying to save some money and make my iced coffee at home, and this thing is worth it! I brew it overnight and have coffee for two days." —Heather Sullivan

    Get it from Amazon for $19.47.

    17. Two Minute Mornings: A Journal, a book that'll start their day in a routine they'll fall in love with. It'll feel good to cross things off their list!


    Promising review: "This was purchased for me as a Christmas gift from a co-worker. I only recently started using it, as I've been dealing with some troubles in my life. I don't know what it is, but even if I repeat some of the same stuff... getting this done in the mornings (or sometimes at night if I don't make the time in the mornings) has made such a tremendous difference in my attitude toward myself and to others. So much so, that several people have taken notice. I have since purchased a couple copies for friends who are also dealing with troubles in their lives. I highly recommend it. Even if you aren't dealing with any issues in life, it's such a help for clearing your head before starting your day." —Sumo

    Get it from Amazon $13.46.

    18. A vintage-inspired 8-in-1 entertainment center so they can listen to their best records, AM/FM radio, stream music from their phone (via Bluetooth), or cassette directly to USB, plus play CDs and cassettes! I mean, what else could they want!?

    Promising review: "This record player really breaks all boundaries. I spent weeks looking at different models and reading reviews. Everything kept coming back to Victrola's Nostalgic Aviator. The 8-in-1 is an amazing touch, as I have a lot of mix CD's and collectible cassettes that I scarcely get to use because I had to use so many different things to play them with. I just couldn't keep up with them all. I can play my records, CDs, cassettes and use Bluetooth​ on my phone if I want to listen to Spotify. The speakers are great and so clear, and when playing records you get a nice old-timey sound between songs. I just love it. The white wood is also such a retro touch and it really looks so good anywhere I put it in my house. Thank you for this product! I would recommend it to anyone who wants a reliable player to play their records without any worry that it will scratch them." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $126.96 (available in five colors).

    19. How Not To Kill Your Houseplant, a guide for the person with the green thumb ~in training~.


    Promising review: "Very colorful, informative, and user-friendly. Have recently started collecting indoor plants and trying to develop my green thumb. Of course, Google and YouTube have endless amounts of information. That's great and all but for me that can equal overwhelming amounts of information. This book covers the main hundred or so houseplants and gives you the basic care information that you would need as well as common pests/problems." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95

    20. A scratch-off bucket list of 100 books. Many family members will enjoy scratching off the ones they've read and especially the one's they've said they've read.


    Promising review: "This is a great gift! I got this for my mom who is a book worm. She has told all of her friends about it and already asked around to borrow the books she hasn’t read, that way she can scratch them off! A fun way to encourage the classics." —Alexander D Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    21. Or scratch off posters for movies, albums, and places to visit!


    Promising review: "I purchased this as a small gift to send to my boyfriend and it is perfect! He is a huge movie buff and has already scratched off some of his favorite classics, and now we are working through what's left on the list. I love the little images behind the "scratch off" because they definitely go with the movie theme, but you never know what they're going to be!"—Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $13.50 (available in three varieties: movies, albums, and places to visit).

    22. A cat-shaped candle designed to reveal a metallic cat skeleton staring back at you as it burns. It'll melt their heart.


    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift and it is awesome! It is cute as a candle and a piece of art after it melts. It was a fun time lapse opportunity and the quality is strong. I would recommend as a quirky gift for a quirky friend or an interesting discussion piece. It might also be fun to have an unused candle next to one that is burned so that you have a before and after display. Highly recommend and will buy another likely for myself." —Robin

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in four colors).

    23. A classic Razor A3 scooter you can adjust for ages five and up! A great gift for anyone who likes to get where they need to go about three minutes faster and out of breath. These kinds of people say things like, "It's about the journey, not the destination."


    Promising review: "Definitely go with the ones with the bigger wheels like this one! My four year old loves it and uses it like crazy. It has the larger wheels so it can easily go over rough pavement, pebbles on the sidewalk and especially the lip of the ramp on a sidewalk (the transition from ramp to street). Can't recommend enough getting larger wheels." —LordMaul

    Get it from Amazon for $49 (available in three colors).

    24. A Harney & Sons tin of Paris tea because the packaging is so fancy and adorable, any tea lover will cherish it!


    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my mom and she loves it! She said it’s her favorite black tea, but couldn’t find it anywhere in store — so thank you, Amazon! This is a really wonderful gift for black tea lovers." —Lolo

    Get it from Amazon for $8 (available in 11 flavors).

    25. A Kate Spade recipe box so the avid chef in your family can keep all their trusted dishes in one place for generations.

The box itself includes eight tabbed dividers for easy organization; sections include: breakfast, soups, sauces, appetizers, entrees, desserts, beverages, and miscellaneous.

    Promising review: "Very well built box, sturdy, and there is a cork type bottom so it doesn’t slip on the counter or get the bottom fabric dirty. Great to pass down to generations. Great gift too. I got one for my sister for Christmas and filled out all the cards with my recipes and left cards for her to put her own on."—HeatherM

    Get it from Amazon for $31.95.

    26. A Waterpik, because what's better than the gift of fewer dental bills?


    Features: 10 pressure settings, seven Waterpik water flossing tips, and 90 seconds of water capacity.

    Promising review: "We love it. I purchased two of them for my daughter and husband and they love it. They both have braces and have a hard time flossing so their orthodontist recommended a water pick to help. This product worked amazing for them, and it's so easy to use. Since using this, their orthodontist gave both of them great reviews; and on their last cleaning and check up, the dentist told them they see a huge improvement. She told them to keep using it because it's working amazing for them. I highly recommend it to anyone with braces." —Charles

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in nine colors).

    27. An adorable collection of viral moments from Instagram super mom—Laura Izumikawa. Naptime With Joey is the perfect gift for new parents or anyone who loves pop culture and chubby cheeks!

    Promising review: "Since following Laura on Instagram, I couldn't wait for her book to come out! It was exactly what I expected and more. I love the witty puns and dialogue with each picture and I love the artistry of each costume. This will for sure be a great coffee table book for any audience that loves babies and pop culture." —kckrsp

    Get it from Amazon for $8.19.

    28. A whiskey ice wedge mold for a person that appreciates a ~cool~ drink.


    Promising review: "We absolutely LOVE these whiskey wedge glasses. They are simple to use, durable, and such a hit at dinner parties and cocktail hour. The wedge stays solid for a very long time and melts at the appropriate pace so as to not water down your drink. The bourbon drinkers around here are very pleased with the water melt ratio in this glass and we have since ordered three more to add to our first purchase! Highly recommend!!" —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    29. A stainless steel French press with four levels of filtration for the roommate who won't even talk to you before they've had their morning cup o' joe.


    Promising review: "For coffee aficionados, you really can't go wrong with this. As someone who enjoys a good cold brew but finds it difficult to find a place that serves it exactly as I like it, I found that this french press absolutely meets my needs and then some. With a smooth, minimalist design, its simplicity doesn't really illustrate how good a cup of joe this thing makes. A common complaint that I've seen is that there's that 'grit' that comes with it not removing every bit of ground coffee from it. Not so with this one. The filtration system they have keeps the grounds out when you press down." —Amazoncustomer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.35.

    30. A pack of eight Skyn Iceland cooling eye gels to de-puff their under eyes like nothing else can. These gels are so refreshing as they firm and tone (especially if they store them in the fridge). They'll be reaching for another pair in no time, because it feels that relaxing.

    These are the perfect stocking stuffer!

    Promising review: "This product gives visible results and is more affordable than a similar product I’ve tried. The eye gels are easy to apply and stay put until you take them off. You can see the difference in my before & after photos, and this was after wearing the eye gels for about 10 minutes. When I wear them longer, the results are even better. After 10 minutes, the dark circles were eliminated, puffiness was almost gone, and lines were greatly reduced. Definitely a good product and worth the money."—Lisa

    31. A pack of five pairs of knit wools socks that'll be perfect for hot chocolate mornings by the fire or for your annual family ski trip.


    Promising review: "These socks are so perfect. Most wool socks I've had in the past are too thick for everyday wear. These are soft, have just enough stretch to them and I love them. I Immediately ordered more!"—Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in eight styles).

    32. A waterproof speaker so your friend can practice singing "Thank You, Next" in the shower for the next time y'all go out for karaoke.


    Promising review: "One of my favorite Amazon purchases! We use this as a shower speaker and we were absolutely blown away at the sound quality of this $20 speaker! This speaker gets a lot of use and we rarely have to charge the battery! The range on the bluetooth is equally impressive. I don't think there is anything bad I could say about this thing! Easily one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon!" —Barry A.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in four colors).

    33. A Frenchie wine glass that'll have them saying, "Rose-heyyyyy! that's a cute dog!"


    It also reads "Pardon my Frenchie." This glass is dishwasher-safe (just put it on the top rack!) and is shatter-resistant, which is truly heaven-sent for us clumsy folks.

    Promising review: "My best friend loves her Frenchie (named Hula), so i bought two of these to give her on her birthday. The glasses are strong and the perfect weight and height, and she is going to lose her cookies over them!" —Jenny W.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    34. A KitchenAid stand mixer so the baker in the fam can finally keep up with The Great British Bake Off.


    Promising review: "To be fair, I have only used the KitchenAid I bought a couple of times. However, my mother has had the same model for about 16 years. I was shocked to learn that it was already 16 years old. Her machine is just as powerful as ever, which says something about the integrity of the product." —KateG

    Get it from Amazon for $279 (available in tons of colors).
