    1. Absolutely beautiful Harlem Chocolate Factory brownstone-inspired chocolate bars for anyone who loves chocolate, architecture, NYC, and/or supporting small local businesses. Each of the bars is shaped like a Harlem brownstone building, dusted with gold, and possibly too gorgeous to eat.

    The box, decorated with an image of Harlem buildings, and the six individually wrapped bars

    Price: $50 for six

    2. A stunning scarf printed with the design of a famous Post-Impressionist painting (Starry nights? Water lilies? Sunflowers? Yup, they've got 'em all) you should give them if you want your gift-giving to be widely hailed as a ~masterpiece~. Or if your pal just loves to brag about that one art history course they took in college.


    Same, tbh.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful scarf. The print is fantastic and colors are bright. It is a nice large size and the material is very soft. It looks like something you would buy in a museum gift shop for a lot more money." —Frances Schiffer

    Price: $20.99+ (available in 18 designs)

    3. A compact and cord-free milk frother so they can turn their morning cup o' joe into a Starbucks-worthy masterpiece at home.


    Promising review: "I’m a barista at Starbucks, so obviously I know how I like my coffee. For a while I was using an immersion blender to froth my milk for my morning cup of coffee but it just wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. I finally bought this frother and I’m so so happy with it!! It doesn’t need to be plugged in so it takes up way less space. It is a lot quieter than the blender, and I can use any size cup I want because the frother is so small. Not only can I heat up my milk for a hot coffee, but I can also use it just the same with cold milk for my iced coffee!! Highly recommend this product!!" —Heather Michael

    Price: $14.95+ (available in 24 colors and prints)

    4. A gorgeous and affordable cheese board complete with four stainless-steel cheese knives that they'll think cost you a heck of a lot more ~cheddar~ than it did.

    The wooden board with grooves for crackers and a knife drawer that slides out

    Promising review: "I got this for my girlfriend for Christmas. She loves getting cheese boards when we go out to eat, so I figured she would enjoy making her own. We've used it multiple times since purchasing, and she loves it. Not only it is big enough to fit a plethora of finger foods for a group of people, but comes with four cheese knives stored inside the board. It's a nice looking wooden board. The only issue we've had is cleaning the inside of the cheese board where the knives are stored. It doesn't come apart easily, making it difficult to clean. Other than that, it's been a wonderful gift and I would give it again to friends and family." — Dolmanet

    Price: $29.99

    5. Sparkly jewel-topped, rose gold pens to help them achieve the Pinterest-worthy desk of their dreams.


    Promising review: "Love these! They're beautiful colors, and the ink is great! No bleeding so far, and I've been using the first one for a while now. I was scared that these would be comparable to the children's plastic versions that I've seen before, but they're not! Very sturdy and stunning!" —tonyah

    Price: $7.99 for a set of four

    6. The gorgeous rainbow knife set that Ms. Gomez uses on Selena + Chef for anyone who's ever dreamed of having their own cooking show.


    The dishwasher-safe set comes with a bread knife, slicing knife, santoku knife, paring knife, utility knife, steak knife pair of shears, and a block (plus several reviewers said their package came with an extra pair of scissors!). Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on these Marco Almond knives.

    Promising review: "Wish I could give 10 stars! These are by far the best knives I've ever had. They are so sharp. And I LOVE THE TWO pairs of scissors. OMG. Never had better scissors! I want to gift a set to everyone in the family. And as affordable as they are, I might." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $61.99+ (available in two colors)

    7. A set of RIDICULOUSLY cute doggo-shaped mini planters sure to ~breed~ feelings of pure joy in the heart of the recipient.

    The rounded planters shaped like a Golden Retriever, Boston Terrier, Husky, and Bulldog, each holding a small succulent

    They've each got a pluggable drainage hole to work for whatever type of plants they want to use them for.

    Promising review: "These handmade pots are the most adorable little pots I've ever seen. They look and feel to be very well made and I love all the detail work. Plus they are pretty durable, because I've had these for a few weeks now and my toddler got a hold of them a few times and they didn't crack, chip, or break. They are made of clay that's breathable, which makes them perfect for plants. I have also been using them in the bathroom for toiletries and another one I'm using for pens and coins. I highly recommend these super cute multipurpose pots." —Dave Stanley

    Price: $17.99 for a set of four

    8. A puffy-sticker making kit literally any kid or kid at heart will enjoy, because you're never too old to know that puffy stickers are the best kind of stickers.


    It comes with a sticker-making press, instructions, and the materials to make 60 stickers! Some of the designs are colored in, while kids can color in others themselves.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 6-year-old niece for her birthday. She's a planner girl like her mother and I, and I thought she would enjoy being able to add stickers to her planner that she made herself. She went absolutely wild making them as soon as she got it! The process for making the stickers is very easy and she got the hang of it very quickly. The set comes with several sheets of sticker adhesive, puffs, and paper decorations to make the stickers, and the sticker adhesive is pretty quality. Even I had fun making stickers with her. Definitely reminds me of an '80s toy. So much fun!" —Tamara Nguyen

    Price: $19.99

    9. An ahhh-worthy heat-changing Charmander mug that will show off the starter Pokémon's firepower when they add their hot drink. It's sure to have any anime fan you give it to telling you you're the very best, like no one ever was.

    A diagram that shows how the mug changes from black with Charmander on it to Charmander surrounded by flames when a hot drink is added

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift. They LOVE it. The heat changing is really cool and it's a very large mug, great for hot chocolate!" —Cake

    Price: $19.99

    10. Does It Fart?: The Definitive Field Guide to Animal Flatulence, which is sure to have them laughing the second they unwrap it. But it's more than just a joke — it's full of scientific analysis and exploration of that very important question among tons of different species.


    Promising review: "This was a gift I gave my 45-year-old son! Yes, they never leave the fart phase ;). But this book is actually filled with very interesting info — there's lots of science written in an entertaining fashion, and the simple illustrations fit perfectly. I'll admit that I read it before giving it to my son. He will now be the most popular teacher on his high school campus because hey, who else knows that sloths don't fart? LOL! If you're looking for something different for a gift, consider this. I think I'm going to order another one!" —Maryann Watkins

    Price: $12.41+

    11. A memory foam gel cushion that anyone who's been working from home in an uncomfy chair (and their tush) will thank you for profusely. Look at you, literally saving their butt yet again.

    The cushion on a rolling desk chair

    It's got over 8,000 positive reviews!

    Promising review: "As an audiobook narrator, I spend a great deal of time propped on my bum. It's difficult to concentrate on the book you're narrating when your bum goes numb. After trying a collection of folded towels and foam bed pillows, I took a chance on this pillow. OH MY. I can now sit for hours in complete posterior comfort. I thank you, and my listeners thank you." —J. Seybert

    Price: $34.95

    12. An amazing robot cat toy that'll automatically turn on for 10 minutes every hour an a half to keep kitties busy even when their human's not around. And those few minutes of quiet/distraction from playing with other things around the house? A true gift for said human, too.

    A cat biting at the feather attachment on the antenna sticking up from the two light-up wheels

    The LED wheels light up different colors and the USB-rechargable bot can rotate a full 360 degrees. Plus it comes with ball, feather, and ring attachments for the antenna so they can mix it up.

    Promising review: "WORTH EVERY PENNY! My little kitten is very, very rambunctious. Loves to play! Loves to bite (agh)! Loves to hunt and pounce! But I can’t always drop everything to play and feel bad when I’m busy or have to work. This lil’ gem keeps her entertained! Cats need the 'hunt, catch, kill, eat, groom, sleep' cycle and I want to do what I can to make sure that I’m supporting this. She was a little hesitant at first but now she chases that thing like her life depends on it! She grabs it, chews on it, tries to beat it into submission, and generally just tries to catch it. The lights on the side come on when it 'wakes up.' And then it gives her a chase for about 15 minutes before going into sleep mode. My favorite thing is that it doesn’t need batteries but is USB charged. AND it comes with three attachments. Seriously buy this. It will saved me...and Christmas tree this year. LOL!" —Kiki

    Price: $36.90

    13. Artsy face- and hand-shaped drop earrings sure to make your BFF with cool, quirky style say, "Those are so anato-me!"


    Promising review: "I love these dupes for very expensive designer earrings! I get compliments every time I wear them. I’ve had these since late December and it's now March — they haven’t turned in color and they haven’t turned my ears green, so that’s great. Recently I was at a boutique in NYC and found a pair of earrings identical to the larger face earrings that come in the pack. I happened to be wearing my earrings, so I did a direct comparison and they are THE SAME in every way, except the earrings at the boutique cost $40 for just one pair." —Hannah

    Price: $9.99 for three pairs

    14. A professional-looking pizza stone you should give them with one condition — that they share any and all pizza they make with you.

    The large round stone with a pizza on it

    Promising review: "I couldn't be happier! I preheated it to 500 degrees, and after about a half hour, I dusted the stone with a little cornmeal and slid the homemade pizza off the peel. It was cooked perfectly in seven minutes. I was able to slide the peel under the pizza and pull it out with absolutely no sticking whatsoever. The crust was made from scratch and came out crisp and chewy. I plan to buy another one for our son and his family. I may even buy a second one for myself." —Mary Lou Monica

    Price: $37.95

    15. A gift set of three vegan, cruelty-free, and hydrating Mented lipsticks in chic but neutral semi-matte shades sure to become go-tos in even the most low-key beauty buff's routine.


    Mented is a Black woman-owned business that was founded with the goal of helping everyone find perfect shades for their skin tone. Also check out more product picks from Oprah's Favorite Things from small businesses like these!

    Price: $40 for a set of three

    16. A countertop dishwasher for a splurge-worthy gift to anyone with a small kitchen that'll keep on giving. They'll silently thank you every time they don't have to scrub a crusty dish clean by hand., Amazon

    It has six cycle options and will allow them to delay the start of the cycle for up to eight hours to fit their schedule. The universal adapter just connects to the faucet to supply it with water!

    Promising review: "I have always washed all the crud off dishes before I put them in a dishwasher. I live in an apartment and have gone without a dishwasher for many years now. But my nephew recommended this for me. I absolutely love it! It fits nicely on my cupboard next to the sink. I am completely amazed at how clean my dishes come out...WITHOUT PREWASHING THEM! I have back problems and not having to bend over to empty the dishwasher is really a lifesaver. This was one of the least expensive dishwashers I could find, but don’t let the price fool you. It is wonderful!" —Carol E. Maetche

    Price: $272.99

    17. A charming pom-pom detail sweater your favorite fashionista will spend all winter (and probably some of spring) in., Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m really impressed by the quality of this sweater! I’m an Amazon binge shopper, and end up returning a lot more than I keep. This, my friends, is a keeper! The dots, the lantern sleeves, the detail of the cuffs...this sweater feels heavy and substantial but isn’t bulky. For reference, I usually wear a medium or large in tops/sweaters. Got the large and it’s just right, a little loose but I didn’t want it tight." —jetset

    Price: $27.99+ (available in sizes 4/6-10 and in six styles)

    18. A bar of fancy French shea butter soap without the fancy price tag. That plus the over 1,500 positive reviews are sure to have you saying "Oui, s'il vous plaît" to putting one in every family member's stocking.

    A stack of the colorful soaps engraved with a bird and "Pre de Provence product of France" logo

    It's paraben-free and not tested on animals!

    Promising review: "I generally go through at least three bars of soap in month. This soap has lasted the entire month and I still have a good-sized portion left. It hasn't broken into tiny pieces like my usual soap. It also smells great and adds moisture to my dry skin. I'll be ordering more and trying the other fragrances. Great as a gift. This will be on my Christmas list this year." —Kuda

    Price: $4.99+ (or $4.74+ with the Subscribe and Save option; available in 29 scents)

    19. A powerful heated shiatsu massager so good, they won't even miss trips to the spa anymore. This is a way better gift anyway, because they can use it over and over again and it's a heck of a lot less pricey.

    Over 10,000 reviewers love it!!!

    Promising review: "I bought one of these massagers for my mom as a Mother’s Day gift, because she works standing up the whole day and suffers from leg pain when she gets home. This massager has completely changed her life. Once she gets home, she plugs it in and puts the massager underneath her legs, and she says it soothes them until she feels no pain. When the timer goes off (after twenty minutes), she can walk like a new person again. She loves this massager, and she even said it’s one of the best presents I’ve EVER given to her. I couldn’t be happier! I even went and bought one for myself, and I use it in my car on my way home from work. It's so convenient that it comes with a cigarette lighter connector to plug it in in my car. Once I get home, I take it out and my wife uses it on our bed." —Jose C.

    Price: $54.95 (available in two colors)

    20. An absolutely squee-worthy Betsey Johnson bunny backpack for anyone whose two favorite things are fashion and cute animals and who could use a more stylish way to schlep their stuff. Um, I don't happen to be on your holiday shopping list, do I?

    The tan quilted backpack with a front pocket with a bunny face, 3D ears, and a gemstone nose

    Promising review: "This backpack is super cute and very roomy. Color is soft and pretty. Very well-made. A big hit with my daughter-in-law!" —Becki Pastier

    Price: $59.99 (also available in six other animals)

    21. An adorable mug with a sweet little animal friend waiting at the bottom that's sure to make them smile every time they use it.


    Promising review: "This is possibly my GF's favorite thing I've ever bought for her. Every morning she laughs about the little panda in her cup. SO CUTE." —KevinS

    Price: $9.82+ (available in six animals)

    22. Punny "significant otter" socks, which would make a great gift to the person you'd never want to drift away.

    The white and blue socks printed with otters holding hands and little blue hearts

    Price: $8+ for women's sizes (available in four colors); $14.95 for men's sizes

    23. An epic box of 150 gorgeous colored pencils to help your most talented loved one create many a masterpiece.


    They've got over 4,000 positive reviews!!!

    Promising review: "Take the risk and splurge on these pencils; you won't regret it! I love them. I haven't had any issues with breakage or faulty pencils. The colors go down extremely smooth, which also helps to reduce hand and arm fatigue when you're working with them for an extended period of time. This set offers so many colors to choose from. Overall, this is a great buy. I'm so happy that I decided to splurge and get the complete set. I mainly use these for the adult coloring books, but this is definitely a great set for any colored-pencil artist!" —Ashley S.

    Price: $91.80 (If you want the quality but don't want to splurge quite that much, you can also purchase a smaller pack)

    24. A beyond soft and cuddly teddy bear with an aww-dorable oversized head that'll bring anyone oversized amounts of joy.


    Promising review: "Super soft and cute! Makes a great gift and a great little friend! Love it! A bit expensive, but super worth it! Love it." —mlamping

    Price: $20+ (available in two sizes)

    25. A professional-looking genealogy chart that'll make a fascinating project for anyone, but especially your fave family member who can fill this in instead of just telling you stories about about your Great-Great-Grandpa Steve for the hundredth time.

    The parchment like page with an arched genealogy chart with a side for paternal and a side for maternal ancestors

    It fits up to nine generations on both sides.

    Promising review: "This chart is SO cool! It's printed on high-quality, aesthetically pleasing paper and it makes it so easy to see your ancestors. You can fill in your ancestry and then frame it. It makes a beautiful conversation piece, and it made for a great family evening at home talking about genealogy." —susan j. page

    Price: $16.99

    26. The Art of Disney: The Golden Age (1937-1961) card book, a collection of 100 gorgeous postcards with artwork from different stages of the animation process of classic Disney films. It's basically a history of Disney in a box, so prepare for geeky gushing., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are absolutely amazing postcards that show all the hard work that went into the classic Disney films. The postcards feature scenes, concept art, character designs and backgrounds from some of Disney's most iconic films. The images are beautifully presented and the cards and are perfect for framing or sending! The set contains postcards from films like Snow White, Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians, Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland. They're a must-have for hardcore Disney, animation, or art fanatics!" —OSU Fan

    Price: $21.02 (also available in four other themes, like the women of Star Wars or Pixar art)

    27. A classically cool Levi's fleece-lined jean jacket they'll probably toss on the moment they unwrap it and then never take it off till spring., Amazon

    Reviewers recommend ordering a size up, especially so they'll be able to rock more layers under it!

    Promising review: "I live in this jacket! It's amazing — it is so comfortable and looks cute with every outfit! The sherpa lining is on the front and back torso plus the neck, and the sleeves have a different soft lining. I normally wear a medium jean jacket but the large of this jacket feels better, especially so you can wear a sweater underneath. It is quite warm, so I don't usually wear it indoors or else I'll overheat. Easy, comfortable, and cute!" —Eileen Eisen-Cohen

    Price: $64.99+ (available in sizes XS-4X and in eight styles)

    28. A downright OMG-worthy rainbow unicorn teapot for the friend who's always spilling the tea on where to find the cutest stuff. Now they can pour it, too.

    The pink, blue, and yellow rainbow-shaped teapot with unicorn figurine on the lid

    Price: $19.95

    29. An Instax Mini Bluetooh phone photo printer that pairs to an app so they can apply Snapchat and Insta-level filters to IRL prints (hopefully of pics with you) that won't disappear in 10 seconds — or even 10 years.

    Kayla Boyd/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Kayla Boyd loves hers! She writes, "This is one of my absolute favorite things I own. This adorable portable printer allows me the joy of having physical photos plastered around my room, without having to carry around a bulky camera that never fits in my purse. In addition to looking cute on display in my room, I've also loved using prints in my planner and on vision boards. I've even printed out some quotes I found on Pinterest. And if you are already a fan of Fujifilm Instax Mini cameras, then you'll be thrilled to know that this printer uses the exact same film. The printer is super user-friendly and allows you to print off ~any~ picture from your camera roll through the Instax Mini Link app. Once the app is connected to your printer, you can important your photo and then you're given tons of creative options. You can adjust the crop of your photo, add a filter, or even make a collage! Another useful thing I've used my printer for is finding an old picture of me and a friend, popping on a 'Happy Birthday' filter, and giving it to them in a frame as a gift." Check out her full Fujifilm Instax Mini Printer review.

    Price: $99.99+ (available in three colors and with or without film included)

    30. Celebsaid, a pop culture card game played in three teams that'll give your friend who has every iconic movie quote and Drake lyric stored in their long-term memory a chance to truly shine.

    The card game and its box, with an example card asking which celebrity said "King Kong ain't got [expletive] on me!" with the options Omari Hardwick, Denzel Washington. Samuel L. Jackson, and Forest Whitaker

    The game (which is from a Black-owned card game brand) challenges players to match quotes with the celebs who said them, for a fun twist on pop culture trivia.

    Promising review: "One of the best games that my friends and family enjoy. These days were we spend more time in the house than outside, so it's great to find a really fun and interesting game. This will definitely be brought out during holidays and other small events in between. I will definitely purchase this for others as a gift." —John H. Hicks III

    Price: $20

    31. A spacious ring holder and trinket dish for a whimsical prezzie that's also practical. No more losing single stud earrings in the abyss behind their dresser (again).


    Promising review: "Wonderful gift. Absolutely love it. I ordered four for Christmas gifts and one for myself of course. The other four will go to my daughters-in-law. I'm sure they will love it as much as I do." —Brenda

    Price: $15.99+ (available in 11 designs)

    32. And a luxe pair of minimal chic chevron earrings they'll want to show off from all ~angles~.

    A model wearing one of the stud earrings in the gold finish. It wraps slightly around the back your earlobe and forms a point about where your piercing is, so it's a stud that looks like a cuff

    BuzzFeed Shopping writer Mal Mower has and adores these. She writes, "I love wearing statement pieces but almost never wear earrings — I don't like the feeling of having something dangle off my ear. I got these because I wanted a striking pair of earrings that I could throw on and keep on at all times. These work with headphones on, they're comfortable while sleeping, and they add a smart detail to every outfit I own. I absolutely love them."

    Price: $44 (available in five finishes).

    Them hardly being able to wait to open your prezzie because they know it will be awesome:
