1. A very comfy blanket sweatshirt for anyone on your list who is, like, always cold. Speaking from personal experience, they will want to wear it every day!

Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed, Target

I LOVE this thing. It allows you to literally wrap yourself in a blanket, but still be able to use your hands, without your poor arm suffering in the cold breeze. I wear this while working from home, watching Netflix, and while taking naps. It's so comfy that there have been times I don't want to take it off when I have to run to the store — the only reason I do is because I don't want it to get dirty. I can't imagine one person who wouldn't be happy to have this wonderful bundle of coziness.

Promising review: "These are just the best for anyone who likes to be cozy! I love just curling up inside of it, but the sleeves make it easy to still get things done!" —LilLJStuff

Shipping info: 2-day shipping and in-store pick-up available for select products.

Get it from Target for $44.99 (available in three colors).

2. A lovely dry bouquet with purple orchard grass and gypsophila so they can enjoy pretty flowers on their desk without having to worry about the lack of sunlight (or the fact that they always forget to water their plants).

Promising review: "Wow these are beautiful! I got the pair of pink and black hats. I had no idea the fur ball was interchangeable, so that was a fun surprise. I have zero complaints about these. They're absolutely worth the money and exceeded expectations." —Brandi F.

4. An oversized scarf for keeping them warm and adding some cozy texture to any outfit — it's also big enough to wear as a shawl on especially chilly days!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought this scarf because I am an everyday scarf wearer in the cooler weather. I think this scarf compliments every outfit I put it with. It is not small, it is thick, the colors look exactly like the picture. I like that I can use it as a shawl and not just a scarf. I've received many compliments wearing this scarf. I'm actually wearing it today because it was snowing! It is long enough where I can tie it in different ways and doesn't look or feel cheap. The scarf does not scratch at my neck. If you are looking for a quality scarf, I would recommend. I will be purchasing another!" —Jennifer Williams

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

Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 20 colors).

5. A cult-favorite Orolay parka that has six (!!!) pockets and a large fleece-lined hood, guaranteed to keep them extra warm all winter long. There's a reason this coat has over 13,000 5-star reviews!

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

It also has a side zippers, which gives it a more relaxed fit — especially when sitting.

Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye, purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

Get it from Amazon for $159.99+ (available in sizes XXS–5XL and in 13 colors).

6. An illuminating essential-oil diffuser and set of six essential oils to make their space smell wonderful for some much needed aromatherapy. It also adds moisture to the air, which is always needed during the dry winter months.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The diffuser can also be used as a color-changing night-light, plus it has programmable on/off cycles and auto shut-off once the water runs out.

Promising review (for the diffuser): "This is a really great diffuser, especially for a first timer like myself. It's small and simple and also succeeds in freshening up my entire room. The 30-second burst is great at keeping your space feeling and smelling great throughout the day, while the continuous mode lasts for about six hours, so I keep it on while I'm sleeping." —Pascal Ibe

Promising review (for the essential oils): "Oils are tricky to buy in a variety pack because there are always ones you don't want, sandwiched in with really good ones. This has the best of the best. I LOVE IT! And It's a really great price. Just opening the package smelled nice. I would buy this again, recommend it, and even give as a gift!" —Momma Moki

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

Get the diffuser from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four designs) and get the set of six essential oils from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "Wow! Very high quality and the package is absolutely giftworthy. I am really enjoying this assortment. I really feel like I am in on something now that I have tried this brand.

Promising review: "I bought the gray fur blanket and HOLY SMOKES this is the most comfortable blanket I think I’ve ever bought. Was meant to be decor and not really used but I can’t keep it off of me, it’s so soft. I was very surprised by how good of quality it seems, especially for the price. Big enough to cover two people up easily. I’d compare the feeling of the faux fur to something like bunny’s fur, and the Sherpa is very soft as well. Has some decent weight to it and I’ve found it to be very warm so far. All in all, good for the money." —Kaylee Morris

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

Promising review: "Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from such an inexpensive faux fur stole, but WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! The fur is silky smooth and looks close to real. It is a great size...not too large, not too small! It has an unnoticeable loophole, so the stole can stay put instead of sliding everywhere and having to 'hold on' to it with clenched arms. I bought this for my Great Gatsby dress and it fits in perfectly with the dress. If you are considering....I say put it in your cart and checkout!! You won't be disappointed!" —rjv4EVER

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

Promising review: "After receiving the first box as a gift, I had to order more. I am a true bath person and have tried bath products across the globe. I can honestly say that these are the absolute best bath bombs I have ever used! The fragrance is incredible and my skin is left soft, not oily. Here comes the part that blew me away: No residue or ring left in my tub! One more thing, the price allows me to order more and give as gifts!" —Pamela

Promising review: "I love the very modern-industrial-design look of this French press coffee maker. The copper color is very nice too and suits well for this design.

Glossier

Promising review: "I use this on my lips once in the morning and once at night and that's it! My lips are baby soft the entire rest of the day and I haven't had any issues with chapped lips since I started using it! You only need a small amount too, which is so nice.

Promising review: "I have researched so many coffee heaters and am glad I decided on this one. No matter how long I drink, it definitely keeps my coffee hot. I also like that it has three settings.

I got this faux-shearling coat for Christmas and I have worn it tons since! It is soft, cozy, warm, and pretty much everything I want in a jacket. I love that it fits oversized so I can easily wear it over a sweater or hoodie. The front pockets are deep and easily fit my phone without feeling like it's going to fall out. And of course, I think it's really cute and stylish. For less than $35 (!!), I might even grab another color.

Fellow

The design features a fluted, no-drip spout and a degree dial that allows you to set the temperature between 135 degrees F and 212 degrees F and even hold it there for a full hour.

Promising review: "We waffled about getting this kettle. Surely the cheapie electric one we had would do the trick for amateur pour-over enthusiasts? No. Wrong. This is superior in every aspect. The temperature holding feature is amazing — no more heating up the water, forgetting you started, and having to heat it up again. Definitely more consistent in temperature, creating more consistent cups of coffee." —Emily A.

The candle
Otherland

I have this candle in my apartment and it's one of the best scents I've ever had! It creates such a relaxing environment and it looks really pretty. It also seems to last quite a while, which is nice since I've been burning it every single day!
