1. An incredibly detailed, dual color moon-shaped light in case they want to feel like a space giant lurking in our solar system. They can leave on its perch or carry around with them to make their space feel extra cozy. One thing's for sure, they'll definitely be ~over the moon~ for this gift!

Promising review: "I originally bought the 7-inch moon for my husband as a gift of 'I love you to the moon and back' for our anniversary... Well, I loved his moon so much that I kept stealing it from our bedroom and taking it to the living room. So I bought myself the 5.9-inch moon to compare sizes and have one to call my own. As it turns out, the slightly smaller 5.9-inch one is just as amazing as the seven-inch.

These moons charge up fast with a cord (with a cool 'blue moon' color when charging) and then once charged, they are completely free from cords or any connection dependence. They light up with a very detailed real moon surface design in white or yellow, and it will totally mesmerize you. You can literally 'hold the whole moon in your hand' and use it as a cordless and battery-free lamp, a nightlight, a lantern or quasi-candle in the dark. The wood stand is sleek and super easy to assemble, and is a perfect accent to any room décor. These moons are the best gift for friends, family, co-workers, kids, pets and spouses." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "One of those items I didn’t know I needed until I had it. As a busy mom of two little ones, I can’t even remember the last time I got to finish a hot cup of coffee. Until now! This truly kept my coffee warm for literal hours. And I love the wood grain look of it. It’s nice and doesn’t look cheap at all. I’m going to keep it on my desk for when I’m working, and I’ll never go without hot coffee again!" —ADR80

8. A trending rotating digital alarm clock / device charger they've probably seen on TikTok because everyone is *obsessed* with it. The cool mirrored screen features an extra-large LED display that makes it easy to catch a quick glance of the time even from a distance *and* it will auto-dim during their sleep time (although it's manually dimmable too)!  Plus, it has two charging ports so they can charge the clock *and* their other devices simultaneously.

It's also got a big ol' snooze button so they can quickly and easily silence the numerous alarms they set before the one that actually means it's time to wake up.

You can check out the TikTok featuring the mirrored digital alarm clock to see it in action!

Promising review: "Love love love this clock...sleek and definitely a statement piece. Alarm is subtle it will definitely wake you up however it will not scare the B-Jesus out of you. Love the extra ports on the side to charge other things with it." —Meika B.

Check out what BuzzFeed writer Emma Lord has to say about it:

"People also swear by this for camping! It comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it."

12. And a pair of BPA-free, reusable glowing chopsticks for the person you know who would love to pretend they're dining in a galaxy far far away...

13. A magic-looking automatic pan stirrer ingeniously designed so they can stop avoiding those recipes that call for lengthy continuous stirring. It even has a built-in timer, so they can let it take over at the stove while they bask in the glory of their newfound free time.

14. An iridescent, durable, and long-lasting Snitch fidget spinner perfect for Harry Potter fans who could use a little something to keep their hands occupied.

Promising review: "This fidget spinner is a hefty little toy! I was expecting a cheap toy for my son but it was so much more! Great quality and spins really well. We have all really enjoyed this spinner!" —Awesterlund87

15. Some LED faucet lights that change color based on the temperature of the water. Now they'll never accidentally scald their hands again! Plus, these actually make washing dishes — dare I say — kinda fun for a change??

16. And a color-changing shower head to take their showering experience to the next level. It's super easy to install and is powered by running water so there's no need for batteries.

17. A rechargeable hand warmer with three temperature levels for anyone whose hands are always cold. Plus, they can even use it to charge their phone!

Promising review: "This hand warmer is amazing! My hands are constantly cold and I've tried all sorts of products to help keep them warm but nothing has worked until now. I charge the hand warmer every night with a standard USB charger and the next day, I have hours of warmth. The three temperature settings are very helpful — I use the highest setting when I'm outdoors for long periods of time and the lower settings when I'm indoors (e.g., sitting at my desk or in a cold movie theater). I've already given hand warmers as gifts to several cold-handed friends and family members and they're loving it as well. I hope Ocoopa comes out with a foot warmer next!" —RK

18. A rattan phone stand woven by hand to ensure that they have the coolest phone in town.

19. A digital touchscreen photo frame — it connects to a unique email account so that any images sent to the email will show up on the screen. It's a fun way to connect with family and friends and it just might replace a group chat or two.

It has 8 GB of storage, which is enough for 8,000+ photos!

Promising review: "Fabulous! We moved to the US 10 years and so connection with family back home is vital. We bought this for my 86-year-old mother-in-law in the UK last Christmas, so that we could share moments with her across the miles. The whole family has embraced it and now she sees all those special photos. It is easy to use - she doesn’t have to do anything." —Anne-Marie W.

20. A cat-shaped attachable light so their selfies will always look A-MEOW-ZING. It also makes a great book light and can even be used to make Zoom calls look nicer.

Promising reviews: "Don't be fooled by how cheap the price is or how small it looks!!! I just got it a few minutes ago and already I'm in love with it!!! It's little so it can easily be carried in a purse. Some selfie lights are so huge and distracting that it looks silly and attracts too much attention. Not this one! I love that it's adjustable unlike others. It has three lights and each has three levels!!!! And each makes you look amazing! 

The lights are powerful and the lower level ones are really nice and dimmer. I love that because this selfie light is adjustable, it can easily serve as a reading mini clip on lamp too! Even a small little night light because it stands on its own. This is a selfie light you can use for many things. Plus, it's rechargeable so no need for batteries, which is so convenient. If you're looking for a selfie light you gotta give this a try! I promise you won't regret!! A+" —Ena

"This little light is so powerful! I use it for online teaching! It lights up my face and background perfectly! I love it because I can easily travel with it instead of bringing a larger, bulkier light. It clips right onto my iPad. I also use it with my Google Pixel with the case on. The best feature is that you can charge the light while using it. The battery life is great for such a tiny light. I can use it steadily for about three hours before the battery runs out. I've been using it for over a month almost daily and it's still going strong! Plus...kitty ears!" —Kindle Customer

21. An impressively large and mesmerizing gem chunk that gives off magical, rainbow-tinged light using dimmable LEDs. Just owning this thing is a form of self-care, TBH.

22. A rain showerhead so every shower feels like a trip to a 5-star resort. Set up some mood lighting, throw on some Hilary Duff, and ♫LET THE RAIN FALL DOWN♫.

23. A set of wooden long-distance lamps — every time you touch yours, theirs lights up, letting them know that you're thinking about them. It works the same way on their end too!

Uncommon Goods

Promising review: "Sending good vibes and love between Oregon and Missouri. This was a gift from my daughter's family to my husband for his birthday. We placed it where we see it frequently. We miss seeing our grandchildren and love to see the color change indicating that someone has walked by and tapped to say hi! My grandson and husband had dueling taps that was quite funny. I received a text stating that my 12 year old grandson was not going to bed because he wanted to be the last tap. So my husband aka Grandpa finally gave in and 'let him win.' This was a PERFECT GIFT!" —Auban

Shipping info: Economy: seven to nine business days; expedited shipping options available. Visit the shipping page for more info.

Get a set of two from Uncommon Goods for $198 (also sold individually for $99 each).

24. Some colorful earbuds with a *huge* number of positive reviews for anyone who recently read about wired headphones being back on trend. Thanks, TikTok!

25. A robot vacuum — it'll actually do an efficient job so they can do other things while it scoots around and does the work all on its own. The future is now!

This robot vacuum has an infrared-sensor for evading obstacles and drop-sensing tech to avoid falls. It also automatically recharges so it's always ready to clean. It comes with a remote control (two AAA batteries included), charging base, AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, and five cable ties. It can clean continuously for up to 100 minutes.

Promising review: "I wanted to try out a vacuum robot but wasn’t looking to spend $500. I got this based on the great reviews and low price and I have not been disappointed. I have it set to go off every morning at 9 AM, and it cleans for at least an hour and a half before it returns to the charging stand due to low battery. I love the fact that at any point I can just pick it up and carry it to one of our upstairs rooms and let it clean there, and I can be doing things while it’s vacuuming. 

It will sense when it’s reached an edge and will not go off the stairs. I was amazed that for the first five days it would come back full of dirt even though we vacuumed fairly regularly. Now that it’s running every morning it comes back about half full (we have a dog an a cat), still incredible that it finds that much dirt and hair! It does a pretty good job getting over the transitions in our floor, only occasionally needing a little nudge. 

It seems to have a sensor directly in front of it and will avoid obstacles straight ahead, the obstacles to the side it will gently bump into and then continue to turn a couple degrees and try again until it gets itself back out. Although I love it, our cat is very suspicious and follows it around everywhere. :-)" —Dahna Brinkley

27. A fun desk lamp/pen holder disguised as a cute little plant for anyone who has trouble keeping real ones alive.

28. And a super cute cactus humidifier that'll keep their workspace from feeling too stuffy while making their desk look extra ~sharp~.
