    1. A set of 12 handcrafted, moisturizing bath bombs made with natural ingredients for someone who loves to relax in a nice warm bath — or someone who could afford to relax a little more often.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    Price: $26.80

    2. A giant pack of velvet hair scrunchies that'll make any VSCO girl on your list incredibly happy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect! Purchased these as a last-minute Christmas gift for my daughter and they arrived super fast. Every single one is perfect, the velvet is soft and they are well made. My daughter absolutely loves them and there is literally a color to go with everything. The colors range from some darks, medium tones, pastels and even some brights. Highly recommend, very very pleased with this purchase!!" —Lisa S

    Price: $8.99 for a pack of 60 (available in three different designs)

    3. A sherpa and microfiber throw blanket covered in words of positivity so your loved one can feel warm and fuzzy inside and out.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The blanket reads: Warm Hug Prayer Positive Thoughts Strength Hugs Healing Energy Harmony Peace Love Hope Campassion Serenity Joy Fun Bear Hug Comfort Rejuvenating Spirit Positive Energy Resilience

    Promising review: "What a great gift. It certainly has the effect that I hoped for. I gave it as a gift to a sick family member. I wish I could bottle the look in her eyes and the smile on her face when she opened it. It is of great quality, soft and good size." —Sonny

    Price: $29.98+ (available in four sizes and 22 colors and designs)

    4. A Fujifilm instant camera and accessories bundle, because they're great for capturing memories and using as room decor. This set makes an awesome gift because it has everything someone could want/need to start snapping away.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This mega set includes: a Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera, two 20-packs of film, a matching camera case with an adjustable strap, 64-photo album, selfie lens, four colored filters, 10 hanging frames, 10 clips and string, 60 sticker frames, five plastic stand-up frames, and a microfiber cleaning cloth.

    Promising review: "I love this so much!! It comes with EVERYTHING to start using the moment you take it out of the box. This was such an awesome gift (that I asked my BF to get for me! Lol!) I can’t wait to capture memories and have all kinds of cute albums to store them in! Totally worth buying for yourself or as a gift! Great great great!" —Natalia T

    Price: $99.95 (available in five colors)

    5. A memory foam seat cushion perfect for a workaholic on your list, a frequent traveler, or someone with long commutes. This will provide them with tons of extra comfort that they'll definitely thank you for later.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This useful cushion can help to relieve pain in the lower back, lumbar, tailbone, prostate, hip, piriformis, spine, legs, back, and more.

    Promising review: "We have purchased five of these seat cushions, with three as gifts. Two of those we purchased this cushion for have pretty serious sciatica problems. It was so much help for one that he ordered a second for his office chair, so he would not have to carry his first one from the car to the office. Total transformation for him! My husband and I each use one. I've had back surgery, and I can't explain what this seat cushion does for my back issues when driving." —G-mo

    Price: $29.95

    6. A nostalgic Connect 4 game great for families, kids, or pretty much anyone who loves a good game night.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really loved Connect 4 when I was a kid. Then I bought this for my 3-year-old and 1-year-old. Although they are not playing by the rules, putting the discs into the slot keeps them busy. It's also a good tool to teach colors and counting as well as learn about taking turns. A+ plus in my book." —shopgirl

    Price: $6.89

    7. An Amazon Fire TV Stick that'll totally upgrade the receiver's TV-watching experience. They can binge their fave shows on Netlfix, Hulu, YouTube, and more (you'll probably want to grab one for yourself too).

    amazon.com

    This best-selling streaming media player can fulfill all of your binge-watching needs. You can watch your fave shows and movies from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Prime Video, STARZ, SHOWTIME, or CBS All Access, plus stream for free with Pluto TV, IMDb TV, and more. It also comes with an Alexa Voice Remote which means you can actually speak to it instead of clicking a bunch of buttons! To get started, you just have to plug it into an outlet and into your HDTV, sign into wifi, and then Alexa walks you through how to set up your apps.

    Promising review: "This is an upgrade from my original Fire Stick. The installation was so easy, Amazon is really good with their step by step instructions. It works perfectly. The one thing I like even more than the voice control is the size of the remote." —Kay Robbins

    Price: $34.99+

    8. An Instant Pot guaranteed to please both the home chef on your list and the busy body who barley makes time to cook at all.

    amazon.com

    The Instant Pot is a seven-in-one multi-functional cooker (pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, it sautes and browns, can make yogurt, steams, and warms) and likely one of most incredible things you will ever purchase for your home.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my college student daughter who moved off campus into an apartment. Space was limited but she wanted a rice cooker, a Crock-Pot, and a pressure cooker — this fit the bill all in one. She loves it and uses it more than the stove. I am a huge fan as well of pressure cookers, been cooking meals in it for years." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $59.88+ (available in four sizes and four colors)

    9. A double-sided lighted makeup mirror any beauty guru would love for their vanity.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mirror is not only the perfect height, it is the perfect size, weight, and offers the correct lighting to make your makeup look perfect. I've been using it for about a month now and can confidently say that out of the many makeup mirrors I have owned, this is the best. It's not too bulky so I can bring it with me when I travel, it's extremely easy to clean, and the lighting is exactly what you'd expect from something like this. Soft — not harsh. It mimics daylight extremely well. Buy it!" —Jess

    Price: $36.93+ (available in three finishes)

    10. A pack of 50 colored pencils so your favorite aspiring artist can let their creativity run wild. You can also gift them with an adult coloring book for any friend that could use a little de-stressing.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought these as gifts for family. These are the best reasonably priced pencils I've tried! They are like Crayola's older, more experienced brother. In fact, if you blindly handed me a Sargent pencil I might believe it was meant to be artist grade! I highly recommend these to beginning colorists because I would hate to see someone turned away from such an enjoyable hobby because of bad pencils. Highly recommend!" —Michelle Turner

    Price: $5.96

    11. The complete eight-film collection of Harry Potter, because these movies will never ever get old! Any Potterhead (seasoned or newbie) will be thrilled to receive it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with this set. I did not need bells and whistles, like all sorts of behind the scenes or extra scenes or whatever. I wanted the full set of movies because my collection was a mix of VHS and DVD and not complete. This set is packed in a very sturdy case with all movies on separate DVDs. The DVDs are substantial. I've watched the first DVD and it has excellent video and audio. I'm happy. The price is pretty amazing as well." —Patricia Loegering

    Price: $39.99+ (also available on Blu-ray, 4K, and multi-format)

    12. A silver cuff with a hidden message perfect for a loved one who needs a little pick-me-up.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    The bracelet above says, "A true friendship is a journey without an end." But, there are TONS of other motivating messages to choose from including: "Be fearless," "Just keep swimming," "Life is tough but so are you," and "You are unstoppable."

    Promising review: "I got this bracelet for a friend who was having a tough time. It is great quality and well made. The engraving is well done! Heavier than I thought it would be! Would order again! Thank you!" —HeatherMarie

    Price: $14.97 (available in 33 different phrases)

    13. A Hydro Flask water bottle that's not only cool for your trendy friend, but also for those who travel, work out often, or enjoy environmentally-friendly products. Plus, you can get everyone their favorite color.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am an avid Hydro Flask user. In fact, this is my second purchase! I bought the exact one I had before after my first one was lost/stolen. Though they are on the pricey side, the quality makes up for it. The coloring stays in tact and the insulation is amazing (cold water stays icy all day and tea is hot even after 12 hours!). I love decorating mine with stickers and it makes them even more personal." —gardenmagician

    Price: $29.95+ (available in four sizes and 12 colors)

    14. A Petstages Cat Tracks cat toy designed with three levels of tracks and three brightly colored moving balls that'll keep kitty entertained for hours. Gift it to your own fur baby or a loved one with cats. This toy can even entertain more than one kitty at a time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat LOVES this. I honestly was not expecting her to like it as much as she did. She started playing with it as soon as it came out of the box. There was no warm up period like there normally is with her new toys. I highly recommend this toy for cats. There's even a nifty little safety bar so she doesn't get her head stuck in the middle." —Ryan Nicole

    Price: $7.61 (available in two other designs).

    15. A breakfast sandwich maker for anyone who could eat breakfast all day, any day (because same). This will help the receiver create fast, delicious sandwiches whenever they please.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Got this gadget 3 days ago and already have used it several times for breakfast and lunch. Having 3 kids and working myself, we are so rushed in the mornings, and cold cereal gets old. Bought this and the kids love it, my 11 year old uses it herself. We bought English muffins, ham, cheddar slices, sausage patties, etc. The ingredients are endless, I can’t wait to try other variations. After a few tries, you will perfect how to use it without egg spilling, cheese slipping off, etc. I’ve been making breakfast sandwiches in the frying pan for years, this little machine is a super time saver! So glad I bought it and my kids can have a nutritious hot breakfast now before school. Next time I need to buy someone a gift, they are getting this!" —Gypsy77

    Price: $24.99+ (available in three colors and two sizes)

    16. A pair of cozy slipper socks to give to almost anyone on your list. There are tons of cute designs to choose from — and who wouldn't want their feet warm and comfy in these guys?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ordered seven pairs in different styles and sizes for gifts after I bought a pair for myself. I have a pair that I have been wearing for a while now that I even throw in the washer and dryer. These slippers are so comfortable, sometimes I forget I have them on and crawl into bed with them on." —Michele Myskow

    Price: $15.99 (available in sizes S-XL and 40 designs)

    17. A LifeStraw personal water filter for an outdoorsy person who would totally appreciate some fresh water on their long hikes or camping trips.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This straw is so handy to take with you when going camping or hiking when you don't want to lug around a heavy water bottle. You can stick it into a nasty river and not worry about getting sick. I've given this as a gift to many outdoor enthusiasts and they all think it's great. It's such a fascinating little tool and so easy to use!" —CJ Bob

    Price: $17.47 (also available in packs of two or three and two designs)

    18. A Nintendo Switch gaming system that'll impress any gamer you're shopping for, no matter their age. These popular devices can be played at home on the TV screen or on-the-go.

    Amazon

    The Nintendo Switch can also be played solo or with friends. It has a battery life of about 4.5—9 hours, which will surely keep a gamer busy on long commutes or trips.

    Promising review: "I can play and explore in games for 7+ hours before needing to connect to the charger. The transition from handheld to TV display is almost seamless (just a slight lag before the display pops up on the TV). I love being able to stay and play at home or take it on-the-go with me." —Jaiana

    Price: $299 (available in two colors)

    19. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush to assist your friend, sister, or mom in getting the perfect blowout in half the time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look." —SAHM2011

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four colors).

    20. A wireless bluetooth karaoke microphone with controllable LED lights guaranteed to be enjoyed by not only the giftee, but anyone who decides to join them for an evening of belting out their favorite songs.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my daughter for Christmas, but let me tell you the WHOLE family has been using this microphone. This thing is a party on the go!! The speaker is unbelievably clear for the size and price point. We had no trouble linking up the Bluetooth, it synced right out of the box — we didn't even have to read any complicated directions. Would for sure purchase again. It is so much fun!! The blinking lights and ability to play basically any song you can get on your device makes this microphone well worth the money." —saracourtneyw

    Price: $31.99 (available in five colors)

    21. A silicone reusable food bag that'll make a more practical gift, perfectly suited for someone who is environmentally conscious.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love that these are cute, dishwasher safe, and going to help the planet (not in that order)! So easy to use and clean, they are going to replace any plastic bags going forward for packed lunches." —Sarah

    Price: $9.99+ (available in five sizes and nine colors)

    22. A felt letter board for your friend who always has the cutest decor or posts the best quotes in their Instagram captions.

The light pink is true to color & the letters are sturdy & easy to place. I'm ordering the pastel letters next!" —Mandy Farmer - A Fierce Beauty

    Price: $16.95+ (available in four sizes and 27 colors)

    23. A stemless wine glass that'll make an a-meow-zing gift for any of your cat-loving friends.

    Promising review: "This is made out of heavy glass, not plastic. It has been through the washer more than a dozen times and the engraving is still intact and looks as great as it did from day one. Got this for my cat-loving wife for Christmas. Success! Always a winner for that cat-lover in your life, including yourself." —Arrr Matey

    Price: $14.58
