    Promising review: "I Absolutely LOVE this tea collection! My husband bought this for my Mother's Day gift. Just seeing the box made me squeak with joy (that's a sure sign of happiness for me 😂). I was greeted with a wonderful aromatic scent before even opening the box. Seriously the smell alone hooked me; with lovely spicy chai clean and green tea notes, I just stood there and smelled each one after opening the box — which is gorgeous by the way! I have tried three of them thus far and they are flavorful, high-quality teas." —Heidimarie Rodriguez

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "The perfect gift. If you are looking for a simple quality gift for the wife this is it. She loved this. I was impressed by the quality of finish at this low of price.

    Promising review: "I have about 20 of these 'insulated' cups from various brands — this one is THE BEST! Keep drinks ice cold; keeps coffee HOT! No condensation whatsoever. Washes like a champ. I need 20 more STAT! I wish I had not been a Yeti hater for this long — I get it now." —Erika with a K

    Get it from REI for $35 (available in 11 colors).

    5. A luxe and lip-smacking truffle-infused hot sauce here to take every meal they make from "meh" to "OH MY GOD" with just a few drops.

    Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeeder Hannah Loewentheil swears by this stuff (those are her pictures above!). She says, "I've been doing much more cooking lately. There's one ingredient that makes even my most average home cooking taste amazing, and it's this Truff truffle-infused hot sauce. The white truffle infused hot sauce quite literally tastes like heaven, but IMO, the classic black truffle hot sauce is the most versatile and a staple in my kitchen. And while at first $20+ seemed like an absurd price to pay for hot sauce, this stuff is worth the price tag. I mean...truffles. And I've tried plenty of truffle-infused hot sauces, olive oils, and what-nots in the past, but they often taste overpowering or low-quality. But this hot sauce is the perfect balance of decadent truffle, heat, spice, and a tiny bit of sweetness. I slather it on pretty much everything savory from eggs and tacos to sandwiches and fried rice. Even if my cooking tastes mediocre at best, a drizzle of this makes it taste almost restaurant quality and so full of flavor." Check out her full Truff hot sauce review.

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with express delivery, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get the black truffle sauce for $17.98, a combo pack of the original and extra hot black truffle sauce for $32.48, and the white truffle version for $33.99, all from Amazon.

    7. A One Line A Day journal with space for them to jot down a few sentences every day for five years. The best part? Each date lets them record all five entries on the same page, so they can see the changes in their life each year!

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    Over 2,000 reviewers love it and so do I! Each page is dated and has five small spaces and room to fill in the year for each one, so you can keep a short record every day for five years and compare what you wrote over time. I adore this and it's the first thing that's actually gotten me to journal every day. I usually write more of a blurb than a sentence, but it literally takes me two minutes or less right before bed. I just started it a little under a year ago, but I can't wait to have a full, long-term log of my life!

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with next-day delivery, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Really cool gift idea! I bought this mug as a gift for a friend on a Christmas and he absolutely loved it. When the mug isn’t warm, it’s a really nice matte black, and when a hot liquid is put inside the design is amazing and works perfectly! The whole design did appear and it looked exactly as pictured." —Kohai

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with express delivery, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Glossier

    Okay guys I know very little about skincare but can we all admit that was a pretty good joke? Anywho, the set includes the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack (a detoxifying, pore-minimizing antioxidant-rich clay mask) and the Moisturizing Moon Mask (a hydrating hyaluronic acid, sweet almond oil, and yes, squalene formula).

    Promising review: "I started using the Mega Greens mask a few months ago and I am not kidding — it changed my life. I use it once a week on my combination skin and I started seeing results almost immediately. I have recommended it to all of my friends and have even given a canister to my mom to try. I recently started using the Moisturizing Moon Mask and I can say that this product is equally as good and is making my skin baby soft. The amount of compliments I get with people telling me that I am glowing is unbelievable. These products together are incredible — I do them right after each other and I have not been happier with how my skin looks. 10/10 would recommend." —cassidy.jo

    Shipping: Expedited 2–3 day shipping options are available at additional cost.

    Get a set of two from Glossier for $40.

    Promising review: "Fred was the first thing I ever crocheted. I decided to give Woobles a try after my daughter made several Woobles animals.

I’m so happy with Fred and plan on making him a tiny birthday hat and gifting him to my 3-year-old for his birthday." —Tiffany Z.

I keep going back to these, not only because of the price but because they actually work well. They don’t have all those annoying glitters and the scent actually sticks to your skin and serves a hydration purpose. I can’t say enough how much I love these over the 10–12 other brands I’ve tried." —JH

    The large round stone with a pizza on it
    Amazon

    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

    Amazon

    In addition to making their mattress extra comfy, it'll also help eliminate odor thanks to the green tea.

    Promising review: "I bought this mainly just to add two inches to a mattress so it would clear a wooden box frame. When I first got it, I was worried that it would be much too soft (I've slept on a firmer mattress for years). I slept like a baby the first night on it. I've been sleeping on it now for over a week and I'm consistently sleeping better. I've also noticed that I have less lower back pain when I wake up, and throughout the day. To say that I'm happy with my purchase is an understatement." —C Chapman

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.

    Promising review: "The packaging was awesome! When you looked at the little glass jars, you expected there to be really great product on the inside — not some cheap spices you could buy at any local store — and that’s exactly what we got! I bought these at the Father’s Day gift for my dad who is an avid griller and smoker. All of the spices had a unique flavor that was very robust and distinct. I would definitely recommend this." —Stephanie Brosch

    Promising review: "Going number two will never be the same! This is the best invention known to man. Seriously — whoever invented this brilliant piece of potty art needs a golden shrine in their name! Every time I use this bad boy, I say a quick thank you to the creator of the Squatty Potty and go about my day in pain-free comfort, because the Squatty Potty took care of me and my number two comfort needs. If you don't have a Squatty Potty in every bathroom of your home, do it now! It's a perfect gift for loved ones, and when they look at you quizzically, wondering why on earth you bought them a Squatty Potty, you will look at them and say, 'Use this next time you go number two and you'll understand why.' You might even receive thank you cards and words of praise!!! Poo in comfort....poo in peace." —Sydney Armstrong
