31 Fancy Gifts You Just Can't Go Wrong With

Oh, they fancy huh? They'll love these gifts then.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!).

1. A personal fireplace that is 100% the definition of cozy, luxurious, perfect, amazing — you know, all of the the things they are.

Bespoke Post

It's made of concrete and features felt feet to prevent slipping. All they need to start this guy is up is rubbing alcohol, which is clean burning and safe to cook over. *Nudge nudge,* indoor marshmallows, anyone?

Get it from Bespoke Post $90.

2. A single-serve espresso machine with a milk frother ready to make them the at-home barista they've always aspired to be. It's simple to use, easy to clean, and will help them whip up personal lattes, no problem. Oh, the coffee creations they will create...for you.,

Promising review: "I love this espresso maker. It's been over six months since I bought this machine on Amazon and I have put it through its paces making at least two cappuccinos a day. Its a workhorse, reliable and easy to use to customize to your likings.

I bought the creatista primarily for the steam wand capability that all the other nesspros lack. I set the heat to the highest it will go to and it's very easy to use. My previous machine was an espresso point by Lavazza and I had to do the steaming manually. This gives me smooth, rich foam full of micro bubbles without me doing a thing. I can make Asian-style instant coffee with that rich foam anytime I want and it's a simple affair to clean afterwards. No more splashes and spills." —Thom

Get it from Amazon for $347.96.

3. A Biossance hydration set featuring their best-selling skincare products that are, yup, incredibly hydrating. The repair cream, vitamin C rose oil, and algae eye cream are each formulated with squalane to provide their skin with an intense dose of moisture. And the bottles? They'll feel fancy just having those on their vanity.

The gift set with the three skincare goods

The set includes their Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream, Squalane + Omega Repair Cream, and their Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil, all in full sizes.

Promising review (repair cream): "I started using Biossance products a few months ago and I’ll never use anything else! My skin hasn't felt this smooth and healthy since high school (mid thirties now). The repair cream is a dream on my skin! Use a roller at night to not waste a drop and wake up feelin' smooth and soft." —Nicole C.

Get it from Biossance for $98 (a $184 value).

4. An assorted tea sampler box filled with teas so cute, they won't even want to drink them. This ready-to-gift box comes with 40 handcrafted pyramid tea infuser bags in a variety of flavors they'll love working their way through.


I! Love! This! Tea! Every time I go to open the box, I get excited to pick a new flavor I haven't tried yet. It's a like I am giving a fancy gift to myself, so the recipient of this will no doubt love it.

Promising review: "This is an AMAZING product! With this, you end up with a pretty box full of AWESOME, high quality tea! My husband and I are major tea connoisseurs, drinking tea multiple times a day. It's been a joy to sample these flavors, which have been flavorful and enjoyable every single time. In addition, the tea bags are rigid pyramids topped with an adorable stem and leaf. Bottom line is, if you or someone you know loves tea, THIS is the tea sampler set to buy...don't look any further!" —Lisa K.

Get it from Amazon for $60 (and see more tea flavors and assortment boxes here).

5. A marble bar tool set and matching drink dispenser for those big-batch-cocktail kinda days. (Sending this to my S.O. *nudge nudge.*)

Crate & Barrel

Tool set includes marble and wood base, a bottle opener, muddler, strainer, and double-sided jigger.

Promising review (tool set): "I have started to become an 'at-home bartender' and this is the perfect set! It looks really nice in my apt and has everything you need to get started. Can make for the perfect gift too." —sherri19

Get the bar tool set for $59.95 and the dispenser for $109.90, both from Crate & Barrel.

6. And a brunch mini bar infusion kit to bring fancy, boozy brunch straight to their kitchen — and need I go on?! OK I will, even though it sells itself! This baby comes with all the ingredients and tools to make three (three!) drinks.

Get it from Williams Sonoma for $60.

7. Ok, and since we can take this to another level, a gourmet smoking cloche that'll turn their house into the finest cocktail bar in town. They're ready to impress with this on their bar cart.

Comes with the walnut wood base, glass cloche, smoking gun, and wood chips. They can even use it to add a smokey flavor to cheese and other foods.

Promising review: "We have used this for smoking cocktails and it works exactly as advertised. You use just a tiny bit of wood chips - so the jar that comes with it the cloche will last for many uses. We are looking forward to trying to smoke a few cheeses as well." —Happy In Texas

Get it from UncommonGoods for $200.

8. A Miku smart baby monitor to give new parents peace of mind so they can sleep while their baby sleeps. This snazzy device monitors breathing and movements, and even allows them to control music and monitor the room's temp and humidity levels.


Promising review: "I bought this a couple weeks ago, and I am blown away by this. This camera tracks breathing rate, temperature, humidity, movement and sound. Any time there is movement or the sound, the live recording is stored away into the nighttime activity folder. If that wasnt cool enough, theres two-way talk, music and sounds, nighttime vision and Wi-Fi connection. If my son begins crying at night, Miku sends me an alarm to let me know he has woken up. It also tracks when they fall back asleep. Im blown away that I can access the analytics from the night/nap and see sleep quality, wake/sleep times, and total duration! Seriously, this is SO WORTH IT. I have great peace of mind and comfort having this camera in my home." —Kaelacc

Get it from Miku for $399 or give a gift card here.

9. A handcrafted spice blend set to ~spice up their life and the people of the world.~ This ready-to-gift box comes with four blends great for barbecuing. I mean, chipotle and honey? They better save you some dinner!

The set comes with four blends all prettily packaged in glass jars: cajun blackened, Caribbean, chipotle and honey, and Vermont maple.

Promising review: "Got this for my husband for Father’s Day. Not sure who loves it more? My husband or me. They are all so good! The maple is my favorite." —Lauren Mcgready

Get it from Calicutts Spice Co. on Etsy for $36.

10. A bouquet of forever flowers that, sure enough, they can keep forever. These stunning pieces are made with dried flowers and handmade so each bouquet is uniquely different.

East Olivia

Get the pink "Elise" bouquet for $85 and the gold "Rhoda" for $145, both from East Olivia.

11. A perfume sampler set if they've been wanting a new perfume, but you don't know where to even begin picking out a scent. This Sephora favorites collection comes with 13 fragrances *AND* a gift card so they can try out a bunch before settling on a winner. Then they just take the card to Sephora to redeem their full-size pick.

sampler set styled on a colorful background

Promising review: "So amazing!! I loved almost all of the perfumes, so it was hard to pick one. It came with a gift card for a full sized one! This also included a paper that has space to write down which perfumes you like, making it so much easier to remember your favorites and pick which one you want at the end. Love!" —Avatess128

Get it from Sephora for $68 (originally $124).

12. A very beautiful smart toothbrush (yes! there is such a thing!) that'll be the *perfect* practical gift for the hard-to-shop-for. Why? Because practicing good oral hygiene rocks — and this one comes with some fancy tech features.

The helpful app works with the toothbrush to guide them on brushing. It features multiple modes and settings so they find the one that works best for them, and smart sensors to help them target the areas that could you some extra TLC.

The set comes with the toothbrush, travel case, replacement head, and charging base.

Promising review: "I LOVE this toothbrush! It shows you exactly where your toothbrush isn't reaching and notifies you if the angle you're holding is not right. I've gone back and forth on which electric toothbrush to buy for years now and O couldn't be happier with my decision." —Sarah Rummel

Get it from Amazon for $56.93+ (available in green and blue).

13. A portable, electric pellet Traeger grill featuring a 4-pound capacity hopper that'll keep up the heat for hours on end so they can enjoy slow-cooked, delicious ribs on their next (boujee) camping adventure.

The portable grill set up on truck bed with large ribs cooking

Promising review: "This is an incredible little grill. The flavor from the Traeger maple wood pellets made the food taste incredible. I cooked everything from steak, chicken, and endless burgers for a big party, to vegetable kabobs. The meat thermometer was a great feature so I didn't have to open up the grill (losing heat) to measure the inner temp of my meats! The grill doesn't take long at all to get up and kicking — only about 10-15 minutes until you're throwing your food on the grill. The grease catch in the back with the bucket was another really nice feature. Overall, a huge hit at the tailgate, extremely easy to clean, not too heavy, makes INCREDIBLE smoked food items. 10/10 would recommend." —Katie Messer

Get it from Backcountry for $299.99.

14. An earring bundle that comes with a pair of gold huggies, studs, and a butterfly chain so they can adorn their ears with some seriously gorgeous bling.

Get the set from Studs for $81 (originally $108).

15. A luxuriously soft comforter to help take their new apartment from college level to sophisticated adult status.


Two big things I asked my mom for when I got my apartment were nice sheets and a good quality comforter. I can't even begin to explain how much that impacted my room (and my sleep!). I am now a full-blown bedding snob and expect A LOT from anything I drape on my bed. This Buffy Comforter is heaven. It's made with soft eucalyptus that resists bacteria and microbes. WIN.

But the real kick about this comforter: Its filling is made with BPA-free, recycled water bottles so they can literally rest easy knowing their sleeping under a product that's helping cut down waste.

See BuzzFeed's full review for this cooling comforter.

Get it from Buffy for $129+ (available in sizes twin-California king).

16. A metallic-flecked toilet seat because their toilet seat deserves to be fancy, too.

Urban Outfitters

Promising review: "So beautiful! I never thought a toilet seat would make me happy. I bought the silver. So worth it. I wish I could replace all the toilets in the house with this, but I’m pretty sure my husband would object." —Cavalier Queen

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69+ (also available in gold).

17. A Maiden Home gift card if they've been wanting a furniture upgrade but have no idea where to start. Crafted by artisans, made in America, and completely customizable, these pieces are truly one of a kind.,

They can even request different fabric swatches for free, and customize each piece so it's authentically them. How they will choose between the 48 gorgeous fabric options, I do not know. I even dare you to poke around this site, you'll be hooked before you leave!

Get a gift card from Maiden Home, and check out the couch here and the shearling chair here.

18. A shearling jacket adorned with top-notch detailing: a cracked exterior, wool trim, matte black hardware... Will they wear anything else? Probably not. Good job, you.

This stunning jacket is made with merino wool and a cracked exterior unique to each jacket.

Get it from Allsaints for $860 (originally $1,299; available in sizes XS-L).

19. A gourmet beef subscription so they can skip the frantic trip to the store in search of high quality meat for dinner. Just a fair warning that their entire neighborhood might be stopping by once they get a whiff of this cookin' up in their kitchen.

Cooked meat styled and garnished on a wooden cutting board

Get a monthly subscription from Certified Piedmontese for $100 (originally $150), also available in other plans or you can shop for different types of meat for individual purchase.

20. A gift set from Harlem Candle Co. — a candle store with beautifully designed home fragrances that draw inspiration from the rich history of the Harlem Renaissance. Think: jazzy night clubs, musical icons, and prominent figures (hello, there's a candle named after the legendary Langston Hughes!).

Harlem Candle Co.

Harlem Candle Co. is a Black woman-owned business that takes a part of history to create gorgeous candles that evoke a sense of luxury and richness. Its candles are made with a soy blend wax, and the founder even works with perfumers to create one-of-a-kind scents.

Set includes four candles:

- Speakeasy = Essence of bourbon and Palo Santo

- Lenox = Essence of Seductive Flowers

- Langston = Essence of Tobacco and Amber

- Savoy = Essence of Tropical Enchantment

Get it from Harlem Candle Co. for $180 (originally $195).

21. A Vitruvi stone diffuser in a lovely terracotta color to keep their skin hydrated, their space heavenly scented, and their bedroom sophisticated.

the stone diffuser styled on a table

Promising review: "After researching, this diffuser cost a little more than others, but the design and quality more than justified the price difference. I've seen other diffusers and they are all plastic and feel/look cheaply made. The Vitruvi model really is stone, which adds value and appeal to my whole apartment. Also, it's smaller than other brands out there, so fits in well as an accessory. We ordered the peppermint oil and the diffuser worked great in our home." —Deanna

Get it from Amazon for $97.42+ (available in four colors), and don't forget to grab some essential oils!

22. A sophisticated composter that'll turn their food scraps into fertilizer so they can then plant herbs. Now this is a gift that truly keeps on giving.


Comes with the vessel, cork lid, caps for lid, waste container, moisture/light/pH level probe, fertilizer scoop, and sprayer.

Promising review: "This is a great small composter. Beautifully made and easy to use. Love it! The lid was a bit tight in the beginning, but it fit well afterwards. Already adding worms and the compost is starting to look good! Not cheap but worth it, would definitely recommended!" —Oliver

Get it from UncommonGoods for $199.

23. A towel warmer because nothing says, "I love you" like a device that heats up their pajamas while they're showing in the dead of winter.

The circular-shaped bin in grey with a lid and wood handle and a small screen on the front

It can fit up to two towels and has a 15-minute adjustable timer.

Promising review: "I bought one for myself, then bought several others as presents because it's so nice. It's fairly small and easy to find space for even in a small bathroom but is also big enough to hold two large towels at a time. There are a few small things to watch for: occasionally the on button takes a bit of finagling to work; it takes about eight minutes to hit 'maximum' towel warmth; if the lid is askew/not fully on the towel loses a lot of heat; there's a bit of a plastic odor that goes away after the first few uses. But if you're aware of those things it's super luxurious and worth every penny, having a super warm towel waiting for you counters all the misery of having to leave the shower in the winter. It also makes a great present, it's the kind of luxury item people don't normally think to get for themselves but makes life so much better. Anybody who says you can't buy happiness obviously hasn't bought a towel warmer." —Heather

Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

24. A Glossier serum set ready to energize, hydrate, and brighten your skincare aficionado's skin. This magical trio is packed with vitamins for targeted results, and I am not sure who will love you more, them or their skin?!

All three serums

Includes Glossier's best-selling Super Pure (niacinamide + zinc), Super Bounce (hyaluronic acid + vitamin B5), and Super Glow (vitamin C + magnesium).

Promising review: "I love this pack because it's so helpful in allowing me to self-diagnose what my skin needs and adjust it based on how it might feel that day. The labeling of the serums makes this especially easy; a lot of the serums I buy are very general and vague about what they are supposed to do for my skin. The Glossier serums are very specific, which is super helpful for someone like me who doesn't know much about the specifics of skincare; not to mention they all work super well! I use Super Bounce for when I'm feeling dry and tight, Super Glow for when I'm feeling dull and tired, and Super Pure for when I feel like I'm nearing a breakout. I'll definitely be repurchasing when I run out!" —Mich

Get the trio from Glossier for $65 (originally $84).

25. A long puffer so they can feel like they're being hugged by a warm fluffy cloud all winter. Isn't that what everyone wants during the days that are practically dark and freezing at 4 p.m.? I think yes.

Model wearing the ReNew puffer in navy blue

Promising review: "The coat is incredible, it fits true to size and is really warm. I wore it multiple times already, it feels very high quality and is comfortable. As I usually were a size S but tend to wear quite chunky sweaters in winter, I bought a size M, so it is a bit oversized as suspected but still fits well with enough room for a chunky sweater. The coat has very nice details, for example, the waist is adjustable and the hood as well." —Luisecst

Get it from Everlane for $175 (available in sizes XXS-XL and three colors).

26. A chest filled with chocolate because you can't just get a simple box of chocolate for your fanciest friend. No, it must be a giant chest filled with chocolatey goodness.

Harry & David

This wood and pleather chest is filled with Moose Munch popcorn, chocolate cake, milk chocolate malt balls, milk chocolate mini mints, a dark chocolate bar, chocolate-covered pretzels, and chocolate truffles (all dark chocolate).

Get it from Harry & David for $69.99.

27. A classic Chelsea boot with a heel construction they won't get tired of wearing. No really, these babies are comfortable so go ahead, tell 'em to wear them all day and all night.

model wearing the heeled Chelsea boot

Promising review: "Wow, these boots are so beautiful and so well made, I can’t stop looking at them! They are wearable right out of the box, I’ve been taking them on short jaunts. They go with everything and I seriously can’t wait to make them a part of my everyday wear. Nisolo is the best!" –Noelle B

Get them from Nisolo for $196 (originally $230; available in sizes 5-11 and three colors).

28. A leather weekender bag so they can finally retire the old bag that's covered in holes and has seen better days in the smell department.


Promising review: "I got this bag for my grandson, who travels back and forth from college often, for Christmas. I was impressed with the leather when it first came and the different pockets. He loves it!!! It has been such a hit with others who travel to see us on the holidays they wanted to know where I got it! It was just what my grandson wanted and plans to carry it for many years to come. I priced and searched out many duffels, this was the perfect choice for the price and quality. Thank you!" —Debra G

Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in two colors).

29. A charcuterie board that is what charcuterie board dreams are made of. IDK if you'll be able to give this gift away...

round charcuterie board with two layers that open up to provide more space

The set includes the four bowls and a matching knife set with four utensils.

Promising review: "It really is beautiful! The packaging is super elegant! The wood is nice and thick. The ceramic dishes are generous in size and four was really enough for the kalamata olives, pickled onions, roasted peppers and black olives. All three cheeses fit nicely in the center. The utensils worked very well and storing them inside was a nice touch. The magnetic closure worked well. Overall, we really liked it, and will use it each time we have an 'appetizer meal'. It is beautiful as well as practical!" —Mona Amer

Get it from Amazon for $61.99.

30. And! Platters and Boards — a helpful guide with presentation tips and charcuterie board ideas so they can pack their new serving platter with yummy foods and treats that are both savory and sweet.


Promising review: "At first I thought, I’m going to buy this and then think, 'why did I bother buying a book that tells me what to buy to spread out on a board, it’s really not rocket science.' But, no, it really does have some very nice charcuterie suggestions I wouldn’t have thought of and some cute ideas for entertaining. I will definitely keep referring to it." —Cynthia

Get it from Amazon for $19.29.

31. And a limited-edition BuzzFeed X Birchbox beauty box that comes with nine splurge-worthy favorites so they can dabble with some beauty goodies without the commitment. You'll pay $62 — but they'll actually be receiving over $200 worth of cult-favorite products!

the contents of the box laid out
