    Uncommon Goods

    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

    Promising review: "This is perfect for the book nerd who loves a good cocktail. Or even if you just appreciate some good books and are mostly an alcohol enthusiast! The cocktail recipes are creative and delicious :) would make for a good gift." β€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    4. A Prison Mike car air freshener so bad smells stay far, far away from your BFF's well as the dementors. Yo, that really is the shizzle.

    5. A hand lettering 101 book with detailed instructions on nine lettering styles that will teach them all the basics they need for some fun, flawless penmanship β€” you know, so they can send you some phenomenal snail mail.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this book. So easy to follow along and practice. Love that there's a sample for you to trace and space to practice right after. Someone mentioned half the book is blank pages but in reality, it's space to practice and I actually like it. I like to compare my handwriting side by side with the example." β€”Lourdes

    Get it from Amazon for $18.69, and don't forget to grab a calligraphy brush pen for $5.95.

    6. A brightening, diamond peel-off mask they deserve to treat themselves to, especially if they've been *under a lot of pressure* lately.


    Promising review: "I really, really like this mask. When you apply the mask to your face it looks like shimmering pearls. What I really like about the product is that it is a peel-off mask. Depending on how thickly you put the product on your face it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful. I then follow with a moisturizer (that's just me). I use this product once a week. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants younger- and better-looking skin." β€”Grandma Fran

    Get it from Amazon for $17.56.

    7. And!!! Disney princess face masks and SERIOUSLY WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, slam that "add to cart" button and get these for your best friend immediately.

    Get the birthday party or state candle from Homesick Candles for $29.95.

    9. A shade-shifting, multichrome nail polish for a galactic manicure that's genuinely as out of this world as they are.


    Promising review: "This color is amazing. People stop me all the time wanting to know which salon I went to. They always think it's gel too. I have tried it over black nail polish and it does last longer and I've tried it with just two coats and it's still beautiful." β€”England86

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    10. Legendary Ladies β€” an illustrated book of 50 extraordinary goddesses throughout history to uplift and empower the equally extraordinary woman in your life.


    Promising review: "This is the kind of book that you’ll want to share with every person you know. Lush illustrations, fantastic vision and above all an enlightening read. We treasure our copy and plan on giving one to all the little girls in our lives just because! If you loved Bad Girls Throughout History, you already know that you can't go wrong with Ann's beautiful work." β€”Suzi Kern

    Get it from Amazon for $13.56, and be sure to check out this author's other book Bad Girls Throughout History: 100 Remarkable Women Who Changed the World.

    The Mad Bombers / Etsy

    Get it from The Mad Bombers on Etsy for $10.

    12. And speaking of death, a skull cakelet pan with the spOOooOOky ability to make all types of food β€” from pizza pockets to cornbread to cake.,

    Promising review: "Don't let the price scare you. This pan is very good quality and even being the poor baker that I am, I have had great success every time I've used it. I made skullzones (calzones in the shape of skulls) and various beer breads. The definition of the skulls on the baked product is very impressive. Just a quick rinse with hot soapy water and it's clean. No sticking what-so-ever. I am definitely a fan of Nordic Ware now." β€”ShopperBee

    Get it from Amazon for $23.90.

    13. A roulette shot glass and spinner β€” and hello (!!!), party is at their place!

    Urban Outfitters

    Silver Handwriting Jewelry / Etsy

    Get it from Silver Handwriting Jewelry on Etsy for $37.50 (available in four sizes and colors).

    16. A pack of cat butt magnets they'll obviously use to hang up photos of you on their fridge.


    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 $10.84 (available in five animal sets).

    17. A '90s trivia game for anyone who has yet to move on from the greatest decade ever... But I am not biased or anything.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10.

    18. A bathtub tray with compartments for all of their bath time essentials (in order of importance): Wine, books, iPads, phone, snacks, and soap.

    The side trays are adjustable to fit a variety of tub sizes.

    Promising review: "Perfect gift for the bath lover, and great way to make a bath look more thoughtful and designed even when not in use. Our tub is deep and has handles that this tray fits perfectly on. The ability to slide it apart makes it easy to customize to the right width. When not in use the trays and holders are a perfect place to store bath accessories (bubble bath, candles, etc.) that keep the tub area from looking like a hoarders pile. The holder fits an iPad 12" in the vertical position, but not really horizontally, that's tough if you wanted to watch a show. It's possible to prop it up though using the grooves in the tray so overall this does the trick. It comes with removable soap/wine trays that can be reconfigured or removed entirely if your tub is not as wide." β€”C McA

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97.

    19. A Corkcicle champagne flute available in tons of pretty magical colors (really, there's one color called "unicorn") that'll keep their bubbly ~cool~, and make you their ~coolest~ friend yet.


    Promising review: "Perfect shape and size. Keeps my bubbly ice cold until the last drop. Love the pretty colors. Ordered one and had to go back and order a second one. I ordered two different (highly rated) types initially and Corkcicle was definitely the best!" β€”Lori M.

    Get it form Amazon for $18.95+ (available in eight colors, and a wine glass and travel mug version).

    20. A set of magical pressed glitters sure to deliver a long-lasting sequin shine they'll never want to take off. And with a price tag like this, you might as well get one for yourself!,

    Promising review: "With some right skills you can make these eyeshadows look pretty glamorous! Most important tip is to use couple of different eye primers and several eyeshadows prior to using this glitter. You won’t achieve much just by putting this glitter on your eyelids without priming them." β€”ElenorY

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88.

    21. A set of stunning watercolor planet plates you should only gift if the recipient has fully accepted that Pluto is not a planet (...Pluto is not included in this set).

    These dishes are 10 inches in diameter, dishwasher safe, but *not* microwave safe.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these plates. They are beautiful, the colors are vibrant, and they are lightweight. What is really cool is they have they name of the planet and planet sign on the back of all of them in case you don't know your planets. A must get, would be a perfect gift for yourself or someone you love!!" β€”Emily Bouwens

    Get the eight-piece set from Amazon for $39.95.

    22. A personalized memory box with both of your names that'll keep your favorite memories together in one organized place. Think: Ticket stubs, your best selfies, and letters you sent each other from across the world.

    Dust & Things / Etsy

    Get it from Dust & Things on Etsy for $45.97+ (available in three styles).

    23. A pretty jade roller so they can skip the expensive trip to the spa and pamper themselves right at home. A relaxing night in? SIGN ME UP.


    Jade rolling can help with eye puffiness, as well as tightening and brightening of your skin. BuzzFeed's Rachel Miller investigated these claims herself to see how they held up, and spoiler β€” it worked:

    "My immediate reaction was, 'Wait, is this what my face is supposed to look like?!' My eyes were suddenly so prominent in my face β€” in a good way!! β€” and everything looked visibly brighter and tighter β€” again, in a very good way. I suddenly just looked so awake, so healthy, so...Disney princess-like? (A half-black divorced American princess whose name happens to be Rachel, let’s say.) At 6:10 am with no makeup on? When just a couple of minutes ago I did not look that way at all? I was legitimately shocked." β€”Rachel Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $13.77.

    24. A unicorn pool float you might as well buy two of. Picture this: You, your bestie, the sweet summer sunshine, and a cool pool. It doesn't get better!!!


    Promising review: "Best decision I've made this summer! I bought this float for a river trip and wasn't originally planning on using it to float the river and just use it at the pool. However, my friend had a pineapple float so she convinced me to take this too, and it was amazing. We floated for five hours and the pineapple didn't make it, but the unicorn rocked it! We went over some rapids, bumped on rocks and branches, and it's still in perfect condition. Highly recommend this!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.59.

    25. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.63 (and see more styles of this journal here).

    26. A pair of corgi socks for the smart friend who knows these little fluffy loaves of bread are the best dog breed ever.


    Get them from ModCloth for $12 (available in one size).

    27. A set of tiny lil' owl planters to really show your pal ~whooo~ their top friend is. Spoiler: It's you.


    *Plants not included.

    Promising review: "These owl planters make the most adorable mini succulent arrangements. I love that they have drain holes, an absolute must in my book. I've ordered two packages already and will order again." β€”Online Customer

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $17.98.

    28. An ice wedge glass that'll keep their finest bourbon nice and chilled instead of watered down. There's not a better gift than that, so good job.


    It comes with the glass and the top mold for making the ice wedge.

    Promising review: "Purchased this as a gift and it was a huge hit. The packaging was really well designed and looked awesome. The product actually works too! It kept my whiskey drinks cold for the whole night without swapping out the cube. Surprisingly, the glass was actually really nice quality as well. Tip: Plan ahead of a party by freezing multiples! Freeze your ice and then pop it out, bag it, throw it in the freezer, and then freeze another! Works great for keeping your drinks cold for as long as the party lasts." β€”Loladex

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    29. A mini cast iron skillet for making a sweet dessert for two. (Hint: One of them is you.)


    Promising review: "Love these. I use them for individual cast iron skillet cookies. They make a great presentation, and the best thing is I can cheat and use the refrigerated cookies so its a quick on-hand dessert. With a scoop of ice cream, you are a star." β€”Cabinlife

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    30. And a set of corresponding crew neck sweaters to get for donut to your coffee, because nothing goes better together β€” just like your friendship. *Wipes tear.*

    Iconic Duo

    Get the donut and coffee sweater from Iconic Duo for $42 each (available in sizes S-L).

    May your friendship be as pure and wholesome as Ann and Leslie's.
