    1. Thick-knit, fleece-lined mittens that they'll absolutely need, because it's a scientific fact that the average American loses at least 57 gloves and mittens each winter*.

    2. A green-tea infused memory foam mattress topper beloved by over 1,600 reviewers, because the best gift you could possibly give anyone is the gift of a good night's sleep.

    3. A top-rated box of moisturizing bath bombs in 12 different soothing aromas sure to give them a ~scents~ of relaxation.

    4. 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!

    5. Quirky, detailed plush animal slippers available in basically every critter you can imagine, not just basic bunnies — I'm talking everything from giraffes to blue tang fish to platypuses.

    6. A set of adorbs owl planters to show them you give a hoot about their horticultural endeavors.

    7. The Rocketbook Everlast smart notebook, an eternally reusable notebook that'll let them scan their notes with their phone to save them, then wipe the pages clean with water. Yes, really.

    8. An amazing heat changing mug that'll light up with beautiful constellations once they pour in their hot drink. It's something your fave astronomy buff absolutely has to own — it's written in the stars.

    9. A clever scratch-off map poster so they can keep track of all the countries they've visited. Plus, even if they haven't traveled that much, it'll still look great on their wall. TL;DR, it's time to hit add to cart(ographer).

    10. A powerful plush RBG doll ~notorious~ for making both kids and adults want to give her a big ol' hug.

    11. An amazingly resilient (and affordable) waterproof Bluetooth speaker that simply can't be ~beat~ for use in the shower, on outdoor adventures, or pretty much anywhere.

    12. 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.

    13. The Squatty Potty, a bathroom stool that'll help them assume the right position to pass their stools with ease.

    14. A nautical and yet no-nonsense striped sweater they'll wear for years to come.

    15. A teeny weeny nonstick mini griddle capable of big (and delicious) things.

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

    17. A Homesick candle infused with aromas inspired by a different country or an iconic city, just in case you can't afford to take your adventure-seeking buddy on their dream vacay just yet. This will still give them the ~scents~ of the place.

    18. The Trtl Pillow, aka your always on-the-go friend or family member's new must-have. It's soft, ergonomic, and will actually keep their neck supported when napping in awkward upright positions. The gift of actually being able to sleep on a flight? Priceless.
