    Promising review: "I LOVE these little cards! I’m old school and actually handwrite letters, cards, and notes. I love adding one of these in them for a pop of color and as a keepsake. These are great to put in my lunchbox too as a pick-me-up during a hard week. Also super fun to leave for your servers or strangers. A little kindness goes a long way!" β€”Abby B.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three other categories).

    3. A ticket stub diary to organize the piles and piles of tickets they have stored in a shoebox under their bed. Now they can easily flip through and see all of the things they've done!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "My kids have been lucky enough to attend more than a few great events together; I know they save those ticket stubs, and they were so thrilled when they opened their gift on Christmas Day. 'We were just talking about saving our ticket stubs in a box, Mom! This is so cool!'" β€”Mom of Adult Boys

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $14.

    4. A mug with a lil' animal figurine at the bottom so once they're finished with their hot beverage, there's a sweet surprise waiting for them.


    Promising review: "I served coffee to my daughter in it on her birthday morning, and it was amazing to see her face when the hedgehog was unveiled. She loved it." β€”David Jimenez

    Get it from Amazon for $15.98 (available in 19 animals).

    5. A sweet (and teeny!) fill-in-the-blank book to straight up tell 'em exactly why you love them! The pages have enough blank space for you to write additional messages and add photos.

    Promising review: "For Christmas, I wanted something personal for my boyfriend. Sometimes I feel like there isn't enough time to show your appreciation for the one you love. After doing some researching, I decided on this fill-in-the-blank book. Some of the questions were a bit goofy and a laugh for us both but I loved being able to fill out and answer the questions. It was a gift that he definitely will remember and it made my day to see how much he appreciated hearing all the things I love about him!" β€”Jenna G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.

    6. A dainty heart necklace that'll give them a go-to, simplistic piece of jewelry they can always rely on. Honestly, it's so cute they probably don't need to own any other necklaces!


    Promising review: "Love this necklace, I got lots of compliments from my coworkers when I wore it this week. It definitely fits more like a choker. The hammered look on the heart makes it look a lot more expensive than it is. I am actually considering ordering more for my bridesmaids as a present." β€”C. Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 10 styles).

    7. A bar of soap enhanced with crystals that's genuinely prettier than anything I think I have ever seen in my life. Seriously, if you're gifting soap, it *has* to be this? Just LOOK AT IT!

    Crystal Bar

    Get the Rainbow Moonstone (left) and the Sprit of Eternity (right) from Crystal Bar for $14.

    8. A golden retriever window decal *almost* as good as the real thing. Consider this the pet they've always wanted, but without all the responsibility.


    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE my adorable dog! It looks adorable on my car and people constantly comment when I’m in a parking lot or smile and laugh when they drive by. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this decal, who my kids have named Murphy!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

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

    This is a perfect remedy for what I understand to be a universal feeling β€” the desire to journal, but the lack of patience, dedication, or time. But pausing to write one sentence a day? We can all handle that.

    Promising review: "I adore this journal. It allows me to write down daily memories or thoughts and puts my current self in a good mood. I'm excited to run across my old notes as the years go on! I take this with me on travels in a storage bag. There's something special about writing on the plane, in a new city, on a beach, etc. β€” any time you just feel like you're experiencing a special moment." β€”Mikayla

    Promising review: "I looked at a ton of different hammocks, but finally decided on this one for my fiancΓ© and I because of the higher weight limit. I'm about 140 lbs. and he's somewhere around 230 lbs. We sat in this, with our 60 lb. dog, without any sort of problem. We found, for us, it was the most comfortable to use it as a swing β€” to sit with our backs on one side and our feet dangling out of the other. We will definitely take it on all of our camping trips. For the price, I'm incredibly impressed." β€”Sarah Gonzalez

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes and nine colors).

    16. A National Park Homesick Candle sure to take them back to the days when they were a kid, exploring big forests with their family, without a care in the world β€” I am getting emotional!!!

    Promising review: "I searched high and low while in Yosemite for a candle/oil/something that captured the scent of the valley. After returning home, I ordered these on a gamble, since there was nowhere nearby selling them. I’m glad I did! This candle is my new favorite scent and takes me back!" β€”Kelly H.

    19. A family cookbook that'll keep their best passed-down traditions in one place. This book comes with templates for over 80 recipes and places to add personalized photos.


    It's like a scrapbook met a cookbook and made this! It's so cute, and I literally just bought it for my stepmom since she loves to cook.

    Promising review: "Gave this to my lovely wife for her birthday. She had been looking for a cookbook to write down recipes she loved or invented. The quality of this book and slipcover are such that someday our children or grandchildren will inherit the family recipes. Neat layout, with options that other books don't have." β€”Bladesmith

    Promising review: "I purchased this for one of my teenagers a year ago. Honestly, this is ideally suited for a rookie. It gives the beginner an idea of tarot cards in general. It's an affordable and nice starter set. Don't get me wrong...this kit is appropriate for beginners and seasoned souls. I only mean if you're looking for an introductory set this one is great. My 16-year-old loves it." β€”Oregonians

    23. Legendary Ladies β€” an empowering book filled with GORGEOUS illustrations of 50 incredible goddesses and a brief description of why they are so extraordinary. You know, for the super woman in your own life.

It's perfect if you are looking for a coffee table book with summarized information on goddesses from different areas of the world. It even gives you tips on channeling each goddess; I think that is my favorite detail. Incredible follow up to Bad Girls. She's a great artist to look up to." β€”Cherie Adan

    Promising review: "I bought two of these to give as gifts to my mom and to my best friend. For my mom I filled the reel with pictures from her life leading up to her granddaughter being born! She absolutely loved it. My best friend recently lost her father so I made a reel in memory of him and she loved it! And it's great that once you have the viewer you can order as many reels as you want!" β€”Lauren

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $29.95.

    25. A pack of cat butt magnets they'll obviously use to hang up photos of you on their fridge. I mean, how can you not smile looking at these.


    Promising review: "Prepare to laugh at the expense of whatever you will hold up with these cat butt magnets. Whether it be a picture of your younger siblings, or a reminder from your significant other, a cat butt will hold it steady upon your desired steel appliance. Strong neodymium magnets clench the cat butts firmly against the surface to hold your daughter's best artwork with ease." β€”William Insprucker

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $10.85 (available in five animal sets).

    26. A cozy tortilla blanket for taking their burrito game to the next level. Honestly, what more is there to say β€” this thing rules.


    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying this funny tortilla blanket! Very Surprised. It's a lightweight blanket that's still very fluffy and super cozy. I think it's perfect. Washed it and still super soft. No pilling. It's holding up well, both in feel and in shape. The trim is sewed on well, so no problem there either. This is the BEST purchase I have ever made. I’m recommending this to everyone I know." β€”Amazon Customer

    28. And a celestial-inspired journal featuring a gorgeous gold-foil detailing for keeping their thoughts, to-do's, and dates in one stunning place.


    Promising review: "This journal is wonderful. The pages are lined with a golden sheen and the cover shimmers as well. The pages are very thick which has both pros and cons. The main pro is that your ink WILL NOT show through to the other pages even if you write on the front and the back of each page, assuming you're using an average pen. The main con is that because the pages are so thick the journal won't last as long as one with thin pages. I've been writing in it once daily for about a month now and it's already about a quarter of the way filled. The pages are also a nice cream color with very thin, light lines on each so they don't stand out too much. I will definitely buy another one in a new color when this one runs out. The price is great for what you get; I would suggest it to anyone looking for a unique journal." β€”Kiersten Hurst

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.
