    1. A silicone Nutella AirPods case for that person. Yeah, the one who smothers Nutella on every food when they get the chance. Protect their tech and their Nutella obsession.

    3. A set of nail stickers with so many fun little prints, they'll love picking out what they want for their next at-home mani. Although, there are literally 1,000 in this set so...good luck to them.

    4. A Baby Yoda insulated coffee mug from the Corkcicle x Star Wars collab (the best collab ever??). It's so dang adorable they might just opt to leave it on their shelf so they can always see it.

    5. A pair of teeny-tiny macramé potted plants (don't worry, they're artificial so there will be no plant killing here) so they can bring some greenery straight into their car.

    6. A bloom glass teapot (and possibly the cutest teapot my eyes have ever seen) for the rose in your life. This thing is so magical, there's no way they get anything else like it, which means you just got them the best gift. Excellent work.

    7. An organic cat grass kit complete with its own kitty-shaped mug they can grow for the cat they said they'd never get but now live for. This organic grass mix will give their kitties added nutrients and prevent hair balls. Might be their favorite gift yet...

    10. A goldfish umbrella because if you're memory serves you correctly, their favorite accessories are those within the quirky department. Well, you hit gold with this gift!

    13. A silicone dachshund ice try that is so doggone freakin' cute, they might shed a tear watching these angels melt in their beverage. Good thing they can just refill, freeze, and make more!

    20. Cable-hugging critters that'll hold onto their cords for dear life. These cuties' sacrifice means they'll never have to experience the frustration of a cord slipping into the depths behind a dresser.
