    You'll be able to hear their high-pitched squeals from Antartica. Penguins will be looking around in confusion.

    1. A drool-worthy waffle bowl maker so they can treat themselves to the best ice cream sundaes EVER. It can also be used to make bowls out of other foods too, like tortilla bowls for tacos! TL;DR, the delicious results are sure to ~bowl~ them over.

    2. Gorgeous ear jackets with a truly stellar level of versatility — they can be rocked as drops or as studs if you remove the back.

    3. Fleecy pug slipper socks sure to warm their feet and their heart. And also make their furry friends jealous.

    4. A boxed set of all eight Harry Potter movies for that friend who freaked out when those rumors that the films were coming to Netflix were swirling, and cried when they turned out to be false.

    5. And a heat-changing Marauder's Map mug that'll make them freak (and geek) out when the iconic cartograph appears with the simple addition of a hot beverage — no need to say "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good."

    6. A heartfelt fill-in-the-blank journal with 50 prompts to inspire you to share your true feels about the recipient — from the hilarious to the sappy. It might not only provoke a squeal of delight, but also tears of joy.

    7. A customized city skyline ring so they can keep memories of their fave locale right at their fingertips (okay, technically their knuckles, but you get the idea).

    8. 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.

    9. A super cool portable bamboo Bluetooth speaker to make their jam sessions better than ever before. You won't even be surprised if they text you later about how awesome this bad boy is — you knew they wood.

    10. The BuzzFeed Tasty Little Tikes play kitchen, which I honestly would have killed for as a kid. It can, ingeniously, be adjusted to two different heights so your culinary cutie can keep playing with it as they grow and it can stay a fave for years.

    11. A festive Mr. Narwhal enamel pin ready to wish them luck on all their endeavors in the new year.

    12. An OMG-worthy corgi pillow for anyone who can't have a real doggo but still needs something to boop.

    13. A DIY Funko Pop! you can customize to look like your friend, you and your S.O., or even your loved one's fave obscure character that Funko hasn't gotten around to making yet (sigh).

    14. And an absolutely iconic bandleader SpongeBob Funko Pop! figure if you want your pursuit of the perfect gift to end in sweet, sweet, sweet victory (yeah).

    15. A customized sterling silver pet photo and initial necklace for that person who basically spends every social interaction just WAITING for a chance to bring up their dog.

    16. Tarte's Winter Wonderglam Luxe Eye Palette, which'll be a downright delight to unbox. They'll open up the sequined exterior to 24 shades of shadow (including some glitters, obvs), mascara, eyeliner, and a double-ended brush. Talk about eye candy.

    17. Baa Baa Bubbles, a whimsical game you'll actually enjoy playing with the kiddos in your life after they unwrap it. A game that helps them practice counting but also includes farm animals and bubbles? Shear perfection.

    18. A badass pair of RBG socks sure to make you ~notorious~ for being the best gift-giver around.

    19. A paws-itively precious plush Pusheen wreath and matching ornament set to ensure their holiday decor is the cutest in the neighborhood and, possibly, the world.

    20. Some amazingly chic and affordable shoes they'll think cost you an arm and a leg when they really didn't cost you any limbs at all.

    21. A set of Lotto Love cards, which are a genius way to make the gift of a charitable donation more fun. The recipient scratches off the circles until they uncover one of four icons (representing things from clean water to educational tools) revealing what was donated with the purchase of the card.

    22. A magically cuddly unicorn onesie to help them achieve the peak level of cozy they thought was just a fantasy.

    23. Festive ornament earrings so they can deck out their lobes as well as the halls.

    24. The full Glossier Play makeup line, which is probably exactly what the biggest beauty buff you know asked for in their Christmas letter. Stand back Santa, you got this.

    25. A luxe reversible wool-blend scarf that'll give your fashionista friend two posh prints for the price of one.

    26. A mini version of the dancing inflatable tube dude one often sees outside a car dealership or cell phone store but who seems to inspire the kind of pure joy not often experienced at either of those places.

    27. Best of Hannah Montana on vinyl, which is really a misleading title because pretty much every Hannah Montana song is the best. But this has the classics from "Who Said," to "Rockstar" to "Nobody's Perfect," that snatched all of our wigs — except for Miley Ray Stewart's flawless blonde one, of course.

    28. A chic equine-embroidered purse they'll be thanking you for until they're ~horse~.

    29. A stylish floral bowtie to make your fave doggo look downright distinguished in every holiday pic.

    Them when they open your gift (unfortunately GIFs don't have sound, so just imagine a high-pitched shriek along with this):
