    1. A customizable shampoo and conditioner that is formulated ~just~ for them. All they have to do is create a profile based on their hair needs and they'll receive a special set made specifically for their mane. Beauty lovers will be IMPRESSED., Function of Beauty

    OK, the packaging and product itself is — no duh — stunning, so I was slightly worried that my thoughts on this would be swayed simply from how freakin' gorgeous it looks. Thank god I was wrong! I was immediately impressed *just* from the smell and the fun color, which I got to pick out when I was building my profile. I have a dry scalp (booooo) but I have yet to endure a flaky breakout since I started using this. Plus, I can go days, DAYS PEOPLE, without needing to wash my hair. I don't get how, or why, or how but this shampoo and conditioner has done wonders for my hair. And a great bonus: it's toxin-, paraben-, sulfate-, and cruelty-free. I loved it so much I got my mom an online gift card for Mother's Day so she could create her own bottle, and now she's obsessed!

    4. A fashion watch that only *looks* expensive so your wallet can be just as happy as them when they open this!


    Promising review: "I ordered this watch not expecting to be blown away because, of the price. Boy, was I wrong! I immediately put on the watch as soon as I opened it up; it fits comfortably and the band wasn’t too small, which I was a little concerned about. I’ll definitely be looking to purchase other styles of this watch. Great buy, especially for the price!" —Jessica Kurry

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 11 colors).

    5. A mystery subscription box featuring challenging puzzles, codes, and cryptic messages based around the month's theme — aka the perfect gift for anyone who's still obsessing over National Treasure (me).


    Promising review: "My husband, mother-in-law, and I completed the September puzzle as a group. It was fun to see how we all had different ideas and viewpoints. Combining our individual strengths helped us finish this month's puzzle journey. Unique and interesting!" —Desiree

    Get it from Cratejoy for $27+/month.

    6. 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. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    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." —Bladesmith

    Get it from Amazon for $24.92+ (available in two colors and four other styles).

    7. A sleek, minimalist wallet and money clip that can fit up to 12 cards so they can finally downsize from their bulky, worn-out one.

    The Ridge Wallet, Amazon

    My boyfriend has one of these, and after the first day of using it he came home to tell me he's in love. He used to carry around this huge leather wallet (like, it was a BRICK) that was stuffed to the brim with useless receipts and business cards, but not anymore! Now he has everything he needs in this sleek cardholder.

    This can hold up to twelve cards and has a money clip for carrying cash. Even with the max amount of cards, the wallet doesn't lose its small, compact shape so traveling with it will be easy and breezy. No more bulky wallets taking up unnecessary space!

    Get it from The Ridge Wallet (available in tons of other colors and styles here) or Amazon (available in three colors) for $72.

    8. A crystal-looking bottle with a lock lid and place for a straw that *of quartz* their life is in need of — hydration is important, people!


    A matching straw is included!

    Promising review: "This pretty cup makes it MUCH easier for me to drink five of these a day than any other bottle or glass I've had before. Maybe it's that it's see-through and easy to drink out of with a straw, like some type of psychological trick, but it works! I usually have water with fresh lemon in it and carry it around with me. Highly recommend." —Jana Schuberth

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in six colors).

    9. A salt shooter to hunt the world's most dangerous game, the pesky housefly. That...or use it to season their food in the most exciting way possible.

    Kindle Customer /

    Promising review: "I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and I'm not entirely sure that was a smart move on my part. Not because the product doesn't work (it works very well, in fact) but because my husband is now intent on leaving the doors open to the house when summer comes back around so all kinds of bugs can be let in for him to kill. He's already had the pleasure of being able to use it on a spider that was on an outdoor Christmas decoration and boy was he ecstatic! Since we seem to be in short supply of bugs in the house during these cold winter months, my husband has also resorted to using this gun as a way to add salt to food while he's cooking. This product works, it kills bugs, and you can even use it while cooking if you're tired of using the boring old salt shakers we have all grown accustomed too." —Adrianna McCain

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    10. A gorgeous coffee table book filled with ads from the '90s — you know, because that was the greatest decade.

    11. Kabob grilling baskets so they can make the perfect, hassle-free kabob on the grill every. single. time.


    Besides, nobody eats straight off a skewer and it takes an unnecessary amount of shoving chunks of meat and veggies onto a stick.

    Promising review: "These kabob grilling baskets take the place of skewers which makes them very easy to use — just put items in basket and grill. Not time-consuming like skewers. Also easy to clean with a kitchen sponge. All in all a great product." —Verified Reviewer

    Get a set of four from UncommonGoods for $16.99.

    12. A Fujifilm vintage-style, instant film camera so they can take retro-style pictures — of you, of course. 😎

    Victor Hugo C /, Nicole /

    Promising review: "This was a Christmas present for my son, and he really loves it. It's a great little camera and super fun with the instant Polaroid film. I had the original camera when I was a little girl and the photos are similar although half the size (mini). It's a fun little camera to play around with. If this is the type of camera you are wanting, then this one does the job well." —Vicki

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99+ (available in two colors).

    13. A personalized Hogwarts acceptance letter any Harry Potter fan would have a ~magic~ moment opening and seeing their dreams come true.

    Promising review: "This was a great gift for my son who just turned 11. The printing is great. I especially loved that I could add the location my son sleeps, like how Harry Potter’s letter says, 'Cupboard Under the Stairs.' As an English teacher, I carefully looked over the document for grammar errors, and it was perfectly written. The shipping was awesome! It arrived two days before the stated date. It’s a great fun gift for any Harry Potter fan. I highly recommend this seller." —SheenaTeaches

    15. A date night bucket list so your boo never has to ask you the dreaded question of, what do *you* want to tonight?


    Promising review: "I was excited to find this gift idea. Not only is it unique, but it fulfilled the traditional anniversary gift by being wood. We haven't used it yet, but look forward to it. I read some of the reviews and cautioned my husband that some might be a little bit elementary for a couple who's been together as long as we have. Didn't sway his impression of the gift at all. He's just as excited to do all of the suggestions." —ASW

    Promising review: "I bought two. One for me, and one for my 87-year-old father. I think mine is great. My father said he doesn't think about his much, because he forgets he's sitting on it. Translated from old man speak, that means he LOVES it! Dad spends hours a day, sitting on a hard wooden dining room chair, watching all of the TV judge shows, news shows, financial reports, and anything else that could cause an old man to have a sore ass. Since I got this chair pad for him, he's actually cut back on his political rants!" —PapaBear

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95.

    19. A faaaancy gift basket packed with the good stuff: Wine, premium smoked salmon, sweets, a leather serving tray, and more. How does anyone top this?!?

    Gift Tree

    Promising review: "I sent the 5th Avenue Wine Gift Basket to my daughter for Christmas and she was thrilled with it. Loved the wine and said she loved everything that came in the basket and when the basket is empty, she would use it as a magazine basket. The delivery was on time and the custom message on the red ribbon was perfect. I will use GiftTree again." —Happy Father

    Get it from Gift Tree for $99.95.

    21. A pillow cover any The Office lover will adore more than bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica combined!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    Psst! The pillow insert is *not* included, but you can get one from Amazon for $7.99. I have this exact pillow insert and cover and I can confirm: It's all great quality.

He was beyond thrilled. Loved it, very excited to create his own, name it what he wants and share his creations with friends.

It connects via Bluetooth so you can connect it to your phone — the music and your singing comes out of the microphone's speaker. It has a volume control for your voice and for the music and also an echo feature. You can put an SD card into the bottom of it and record yourself, or connect it with an audio out to record on one of those karaoke apps on your phone.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.68.

    35. A fancy, super 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. I will say it's a little heavy, so it may not be ideal for hot sleepers (like me) on super hot summer nights, but they'll still get great use out of it most of the year.

    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 $150+ (available in sizes twin-California king).

    37. 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 — 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. — any time you just feel like you're experiencing a special moment." —Mikayla

    Get it from Puma for $80 (available in sizes 5.5-10).
