1. 47% off a KitchenAid Professional 6-quart stand mixer, a seriously worthwhile — and seriously long-lasting — splurge for any aspiring baker.

Promising review: "This mixer is turning out to be an amazing value. It keeps outperforming a 15-year old KA Heavy Duty which it’s replacing. So far, it has done an outstanding job whipping eggs for genoise and kneading bagel dough. I wasn't sure what to expect since there wasn't much info on this model. Besides actually using the machine, my concerns were put to rest after checking more expensive KA models at Williams Sonoma. The build quality is consistent with the WS display models that cost much more. I am hoping this machine will last for years. It is a surprisingly useful upgrade to an older version. This is keeper!" —madcityzenPrice: $209

2. 58% off a pair of Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones.

Amazon

Promising review: "Great clarity and sound overall. Noise cancellation is a stellar experience. Very comfortable when fitted around the ears and keeps the sound moving along. A brilliant masterpiece of technology. Worth every penny. UPDATE: Tried these bad boys on while on a flight from CA to USA, and they did wonders. They really make the background disappear and allow you to be immersed into the music. It felt surreal and very different and in a much more pleasant mood overall. These work great to block out humans in general." —Biscuit89

3. 30% off Exploding Kittens, a family-friendly card game that describes itself as "a highly-strategic, kitty-powered version of Russian roulette," which... sounds like an ideal gift for pretty much anyone, tbh.

Promising review: "Loved, loved, loved. I didn't know what to expect with this. I never really heard about this game before, but saw it as an alternative to Cards Against Humanity for my son. I bought it for my son who is 16 and autistic. I wanted a card game that I can play with him or others that wasn't childish or rude. This game was so much fun! It's not rude, but it is funny. There is sarcastic humor, but not the crude kind even though the name would suggest something else. We played it with my 8 year old nephew and it was easy to learn. Great game for anyone 7 and up I think." —Amazon CustomerPrice: $13.99

4. 56% off this mini food processor because when in gift-giving doubt, give something that will make their life a little easier.

Promising review: "I’ve been using this three-cup mini food processor for almost two years now. I love it so much that I needed to finally give a review. I only cook for two, so it’s the perfect size for us. I’ve used it to make smoothies, grind nuts, and prepare sauces. I’ve even used it to grind oatmeal into oatmeal flour. I have a small kitchen and only have room for the most useful equipment/utensils. This one passes the test. It is also easy to clean…no nooks or crannies for food to get stuck in." —Value GuyPrice: $32.99

5. 35% off a bottle of Poo-Pourri, because your loved ones deserve the best, even when it comes to poop.

Promising review: "We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare - particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement ('YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I'M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY') he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting now after he leaves." —Supa DPrice: $6.51

6. 50% off a pack of dog dental chews, a gift for both pups and the owners whose faces they breathe in.

Amazon

Promising review: "These treats were just the thing I was looking for for my dog. She really can not get enough of them and goes crazy wagging her tail when I show her the bag. The bigger reason I bought them was because they said to reduce the smell of bad breathe in dogs with bad breathe and fortunately it did! about after two weeks or so I noticed that my dog's breathe when she licked me didn't smell so horrible and let her do it more often and she got happier. I'm really glad I bought this product and have even subscribed to get them every month. Will keep buying this product for my doggy." —Ricardo Rodriguez

Price: $8.52

7. 37% off a set of three packing cubes to make life so much less stressful for any traveler you know.

Promising review: "These cubes make travel so much more organized and easier. I use them all the time. The medium size is great for shirts and shorts. The large ones are great for pants, bigger shirts and long dresses. I can roll five T-shirts and three shorts in one cube. I could probably fit more. It all depends on how you pack. I will use one cube in my carry-on and the rest in my luggage. It's amazing how much more room my luggage has when using packing cubes. These cubes are made very well. The zipper and material is sturdy. I'm very happy with these!!! I plan on ordering more sizes. The cubes arrive flat in packaging, but once you pack them they shape up nicely." —NancyPrice: $18.99

Promising review: "I can't even tell you how many times I've watched these disks since purchasing this. The case is compact and easy to travel with. I actually purchased it on Black Friday for around $25 and it was the best purchase I've made in a few years. If you haven't seen the movies or read the books, please do both.

9. Up to 74% off select furniture and decor because surely there is someone you know who would love and appreciate a hypoallergenic mattress topper and other home goods.

Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised to discover the topper fit perfectly. You can tell it is very well made and adds just the right touch for the memory foam bed I blindly purchased, which was too hard. My back no longer hurts and I feel rested when I wake up now. This micro-plush topper turned my overly hard rock of a mattress into a dream bed in comparison to what it was. Truth be told, I may order a second to layer it to make it even fluffier since the pockets of the sheet itself are so deep. I'll be able to layer it without worrying one side will pop off or something. Very pleased. My puppy loves it too!" —SGPrice: $14.99

Amazon, Amazon Customer / Via amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this stand!!! It's simple, sturdy, clean and well made. It doesn't look cheap at all, not even the plastic base. I have 27 necklaces on mine all spread out nicely — and there's plenty of room for more. I have 16-18" on the front short bar, 36" on the back tallest bar, and double-looped my longest necklaces onto the middle bar. I am so pleased with this product and will definitely tell my friends about it!" —Amazon Customer

13. 67% off a 23andMe DNA test and health report, because nothing says "I care" like comprehensive ancestry composition and genetic health risk reports.

Promising review: "I did this testing knowing certain things about my family's history and was blown away by the results. For example, my grandmother's parents migrated to the U.S. from Sicily, and yet, I am 1% Italian. How crazy is that? 23andMe breaks down your genetic percentages from round the world. Not only that, but they can tell you if you have recessive gene traits and whether they are expressed or not. So I didn't inherit Grandma's Alzheimer's gene in any way but I did get Grandpa's macular degeneration gene that is not expressed but could pass down to children. It is so much more detailed than that and also really cool!" —ChristinaPrice: $99.99

Promising review: "Simple and Excellent Product! I was skeptical about this but boy was I wrong. It is indeed a superb product that cuts my prep time down more than half! I am so very pleased with this product because it is designed well (quality/not cheap) and the variety of hole sizes that is designed into the product gives you various options based on what type of leaf you are trying to strip from stalk. Love it. I used this for prepping collard greens, mustard greens, and turnip greens. I was able to strip the leaves off the variety of stalks in seconds. What an overall excellent buy." —LexiPrice: $4.99

Promising review: "My mom has lived in a small town in Northeast Ohio for 30 years now and is moving in a month to Seattle for retirement. My oldest brother and I are staying in Ohio (him for work, me for school) and she is a terrible empty nester. I got her this candle as a Christmas gift before she moves in January so she can remember where we all built our lives together. I know she's going to love it. It smells great! The smell is so poignant that I can smell it through the box." — Amazon CustomerPrice: $23.96 (available in 50 scents)

16. 30% off a white noise machine with 20 unique, non-looping noises so your recipient can sleep ~soundly~.

Promising review: "I call the Lectrofan my 'Little Cone of Silence.' I already own another sound machine which I enjoy quite a bit because it's got really nice sounds that relax me and help me to get to sleep. I thought that it worked pretty well until I had a house guest that snored like a freight train and watched action adventure movies until late at night. I turned up the volume on my fancy sound machine but it didn't seem to make any difference. I did some research to find a machine that had better sound blocking characteristics and the Lectrofan was highly recommended. I'm happy to say that the Lectrofan has lived up to its reputation as an excellent sound blocking machine. I just turn up the volume until I don't hear the offending sounds anymore and the timer shuts off the machine when I am fast asleep." —Joel MillerPrice: $34.99

Promising review: "Had our neighbors over for a quick game to 5 while my toddler napped. We literally couldn’t stop playing and didn’t end up quitting until we had exhausted every single meme in the stack, 2.5 hours later. There were many times the judge couldn’t finish reading a card because we couldn’t breathe from laughing so hard! Definitely recommend." —RRNMCWPrice: $20.99

18. 40% off a LifeStraw personal water filter for your outdoorsy friends, who will think of you every time they drink refreshing, microfiltered water no matter where their adventures take them.

Promising review: "This thing is no joke! I took it backpacking on Maine's Bigelow range. When I ran out of the water I brought, I was A-ok with this. Just bring a wide mouth bottle to fill with water you find. On top of one of the lower peaks, I drank from the most disgusting looking crevice filled with brown scum. I thought, this is going to be safe, but taste horrid. WRONG. TASTED LIKE THE FRESHEST SPRING WATER. Better than any tap. I'm from Maine, and I've tasted plenty of water right from mountain springs, so take my word. One caution: it can be a little challenging to start. You have to prove it by soaking. If it still doesn't work, blow into it a bit. Get one for your outdoor adventures, and one for your bug-out bag, which everyone should have in case of natural disaster (or apparently civil war, because the world seems to have gone mad)." —Amazon CustomerPrice: $14.99

Promising review: "A grease fire did $90,000 worth of damage to our house. Someone recommended one of these after our loss. It is amazing. Even if I hadn't banned cooking in grease in our house I would still have this over a deep fryer. We use it for, chicken, fries, pizza rolls, frozen burritos, and more.

Promising review: "I am a African-American woman who wears my hair natural. I purchased this to increase circulation to my scalp for more hair growth and better scalp care. This massager has been working great! I use it during my shampoo stage, and it gives such a tingling feeling to my scalp. Being wet doesn't affect the battery at all. I haven't measured hair growth yet to see if the extra stimulation to my scalp has resulted in more hair growth, but I love the way it feels!" —Tanya C. GeorgePrice: $15.99

They are definitely larger knives and have some weight to them, which makes them feel like that 'steak knife' that comes out with your ribeye at a restaurant.

22. 40% off a 2nd Generation Echo Dot because nobody *likes* to get up and turn off the lights, and this voice-activated device can do that and so much more.

Promising review: "Love this incredible little helper! I'm most impressed that I added stereo music to my home using two of these! The Echo Dot (2nd Gen) was super easy to set up, and I was playing music in the stereo 15 minutes after I started. They respond quickly to voice commands and it's rather fun to check out what they can do. Funniest is asking Alexa to tell me a vegetable joke! Most useful? Being able to tell Alexa to add things to my shopping list, which is sent to my phone, and not having to write things down. You can even set reminders so you don't forget things, timers so you don't burn dinner, and alarms that wake you. I purchased some smart plugs and now can turn lights on and off in four rooms, one at a time, or all at once! Alexa, 'turn off bedroom lights!' The best command ever! Thinking to purchase a smart light switch next!" —CactusMommaPrice: $29.99

23. Up to 60% off best-selling watches from a ton of top brands (like this minimalist Fossil watch, for anyone in your life who knows "no-frills luxury" isn't a contradiction).

Promising review: "I bought this watch two years ago, and have been VERY rough on it. It fits well, but some of you with smaller wrists may need to get a few links taken out. I like the metal bands better than the leather, simply because my wrist doesn't get sweaty and stick, or stink. This watch survived two deployments, and five countries. Yes it's all scratched up, but those scratches didn't come easy. The finish is pretty solid. You'd have to bear down really hard with a sharp object to put a scratch it. Over time, the finish will rub off where the links meet if you wear it constantly like I have, but that's expected. In the two years I've owned it, I've only taken it off to bathe or to wear another watch for special occasions. People say brands don't matter, but I would choose this watch over a g shock or other 'tough' watch any day. It always kept time down to the second months at a time. Thanks for staying awesome, Fossil. Buying another!" —AmazonCustomerPrice: $66.98, or check out the whole selection here.

Your food is 100% more delicious and 100% more nutritious. Since getting mine as a gift I’ve purchased with for many family members and friends!" —Stephanie Needham Price: $108.96

He bought sleeves for it and everything and it's slowly becoming the first game we play when we get together to game! It's raunchy and hilarious, it's very simple to learn. SO much fun and it's an ice breaker if you're playing with new friends or people you don't know. I will for sure be looking for the expansions." —sodamonger

It was easy to install and set up, was easy to sync with my phone and Amazon Fire tablet. I TOTALLY recommend Echo Show." —EnjoyTheJourney

27. 33% off the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader to give the lit-lover in your life the ability to carry thousands of books at all times (in one 7.2 oz package).

Promising review: "Love this thing! As an avid reader from an early age, I hung onto the idea of reading physical books as a point of tradition (or as I liked to frame it, as a reading 'purist'). I finally gave in, though, and bought one mostly to make it easier to read in bed without disturbing my wife after she would go to sleep. And honestly, I have not looked back since — I just regret not buying in sooner! I literally have been flying through two books a week, without any of the lead times in ordering the next book, let alone running short on shelf space after. And aside from being great for travel, I actually find there is less strain on my eyes when reading in varying lighting. Took me awhile to come around, but this is a must-have for anyone that enjoys reading!" —NPchicagoPrice: $79.99

Plus, this is just really handy for on-the-go mornings and to help not waste coffee (which will inevitably save you money in the long run).Promising review: "If I could give this more than 5 stars I would! This is the best single-serve coffee maker. The minute you turn it on, the water is hot and the coffee is ready immediately. I hesitated on the price but, without a doubt, it is worth it. It has a rinse cycle if you want to rinse it after making something besides coffee, like hot chocolate, etc. We are absolutely thrilled with this coffee maker." —Amazon CustomerPrice: $74.95

32. 30% off a waterproof, bluetooth Bose speaker with a tear-resistant strap to make traveling easy, breezy, and just waaaay better.

Promising review: "This has huge bass, especially for a Bose product. I was totally blown away when I turned this little bad boy up. I love that it is waterproof and it definitely feels rugged. I will not be hesitant to take this biking or out in the woods and I am already turning this on when I wake up in the morning and just bringing into the shower so I don't have to stop listening to my audiobook or music. This speaker is the ultimate multi-functioning sound machine. It's small enough to take anywhere and produces better and bigger sound than much larger and more expensive speakers. Bose really put a lot of thought into this one and produced another winner!" —CJ Matthews Price: $69 (available in three colors)

This is the absolute perfect tray. It fits a drink, main meal, and utensils. It’s very lightweight (easy to move around my bed) and clean looking too. Highly recommend!" —whatpaigesaidPrice: $10.01

Amazon

Perfect for practical gift-lovers! Check out a BuzzFeed writer's full review here.

Promising review: "I have been using this for a couple of months now and have to say I love this Waterpik. I have had dental work done and I put a little salt in a glass with some warm water and mix then put in my Waterpik. This really helps with healing my gums and keeps food out of any spaces that can get food stuck. The flosser part works very well and you will not be disappointed. The only negative I can find is I wish it had a place to store the spare pics/flosser tubes. I currently have them in a tall shot glass so my hubby can find his easily and not use mine!" —H. Ginn

Promising review: "This is a huge hit with the teenagers in my household. We bought an Instax Mini camera last year, but we can rarely capture good photos on it. They are nearly all washed out or out of focus. It is also difficult to bring the big bulky camera along on trips. My kids love that they can snap photos on their phones and come back to print 'Polaroid' photos. We have had no issues connecting to the printer. We've downloaded the app to our smartphones, and it has worked perfectly every time. Highly recommend!" —SussyaPrice: $129.99

Promising review: Look, I never write reviews. However, I was pleasantly SHOCKED by how clear my photos came out. This is my third try at portable printers, and it's BY FAR the best. My family travels a lot, my kids like to do Smash book style scrap booking on the go, but now we don't have to rely on crappy pictures! Plus, the sticky back makes them easier to get in your smash book! I love that you don't have to take the backing off if you don't want them to be sticky.

41. 25% off a Super-NES-Edition Nintendo 3DS XL so the ultimate gamer can have a bit of the past and the future in one portable system.

amazon.com

Promising review: "The 3DS XL is an awesome gaming system, but I am writing this review more specifically about the SNES version of the 3DS XL. First, Nintendo replicated the box art and packaging so it looks like you're getting a SNES from back in the day. The system looks good, and the Nintendo grey is perfect. It is just a screen print paint on the top cover of the system and not embossed or functioning but still looks awesome. You also get the SNES Mario Kart game as a free download too. Remember to buy a charging cord (so stupid Nintendo still doesn't include this). Good virtual console store with a number of NES and SNES games to choose from. N64 games are mostly hard copy and hard to find at this point with the exception of Zelda. If you're from the old days like me, you'll love playing all of the old games on this updated portable system. Many of the old games I enjoy more on the DS than the console version. Pick one up for yourself if for nothing more than keeping this as a collectors item." —Drew Collins

Promising review: Love this tent! We're not big 'outdoors' people so I needed a tent that's easy to set-up and comfortably fits a queen-size air mattress. This tent exceeded my expectations! The last time I set up a tent was in the 80s (and the tent was from the 60's)... This is a dream to set up. I put the tent together in our backyard by myself and inflated the air mattress within the tent. I also hung a little LED lantern from the center inside the tent. We enjoyed our night under the stars with one adult, one 9-year old and a French Bulldog. Breaking everything down was a breeze too!" —C. Sisbarro  Price: $65.43
