    Promising review: "Excellent adventurous flavors of chocolate that I would never have thought to try myself. I originally got them for Valentine’s Day, but was so tempted I open them up myself. They came well packaged in a red gift box, with red ribbon. So very giftable, but also the bars are all individually wrapped, so it’s also good for sharing." —Collin

    green triceratops taco holder with tacos inside

    Promising review: "I got one as a present and I loved it so much I had to buy one for my husband because he was envious. First, it's well-made, sturdy plastic so it stays upright and doesn't wobble. Second it holds two regular-sized crunchy tacos upright and ready to go. This way I can pre-make three tacos, one to eat and two for the dino to hold. The fillings in the dino tacos stay inside the tacos while I am eating the first taco... Seriously, I love my Triceratacos." —ChristinaG

    You can also find our top picks for weighted blankets on Amazon here.

    Promising review: "I got this as a gift for my girlfriend for valentines day and she swears that it is the best gift she's ever gotten. Super thoughtful, as she struggles with anxiety and cannot fall asleep easily, this allowed her to fall asleep in half the time that she normally would. It also helped with preventing her from tossing and turning throughout the night. I didn't believe how well it was working for her, so I had to try it out for myself. Well, I'm no longer skeptical and we are now the proud owners of not one, but two of these blankets. Well worth the price... so worth it that we're saving up to get the king size soon!" –Brian McMorrow

    This arrangement included dried pampas grass, palm, bunny tail grass, and fern leaves. 

    Promising review: "I have been wanting an arrangement like this for quite some time and this did not disappoint. It arrived carefully packaged and looks exactly as pictured. The seller was wonderful and offered some advice on how to care for the pampas grass (put in the sun for a bit so they open. Worked perfectly!). Highly recommend for anyone looking for a boho touch to their home, gift for a friend, or wedding details. I would 100% order from this shop again in the future!" –Christyann Parisi

    glass decanter with red wine

    Promising review: "We LOVE this decanter! It's extremely elegant and looks amazing on the table! We'll have for years to come! Also loved the idea that this is a small family-run business.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    16. An Amazon Fire TV Stick because the couple that binges TV together, stays together. It has a voice remote to help you find and play your favorite shows and movies quickly, that is, after you've finally agreed on what to watch.


    Promising review: "The 4K version has the new upgraded Alexa remote, which is such a triumph compared to the older Alexa remote, due to the fact that they've finally added power, mute, and volume buttons. Hooray! No more scrambling around for your TV or cable company remote control when you need to change the volume in a hurry. The voice controls are also more sophisticated in this version, so that I can actually tell Alexa to 'switch back to HDMI 1' or 'switch back to cable TV' rather than toggling the Input button on your TV or cable remote. The user interface is snappier and more responsive all around, unlike the older Fire Stick, which occasionally is slightly laggy. It's crisp and clear, and intuitive to operate — and setup is a piece of cake."Replicant

    Get it from Amazon for $54.98+.

    17. A Super-Plush robe from Brooklinen that they'll want to spend all day in because it feels like wearing a soft hug (not as soft as your actual hugs though).

    Promising review: "I first received this product as a sample, and fell in love ever since. I mainly use it on the body, last thing I do in the shower, and can't live without it. My skin is not only smoother immediately, but you get that relaxing and calming feeling after using it, and it lasts until the next shower. I was never a big fan of rose scents, but this scrub has the perfect scent combination and got me from first use. I totally recommend it!!!!" —Luciana Giles

    Get it from Amazon for $38.

    21. A Bose Bluetooth speaker to play your favorite playlists with 360-degree sound. It also has a built-in mic to take calls on speakerphone (for example, from you, when you're not together).

    Promising review: "Holy buckets!!! This speaker is AMAZING!! Bought it for listening to Pandora at the lake and don’t regret spending the money at all. Until you hear it, you’d never believe such remarkable sound could come out of a little speaker. Crisp, sharp tones, and it holds a charge good enough to listen all day long. Well worth the price." —Paula

    Get it from Amazon for $239.95 (available in two colors).

    22. A sleek Vitruvi stone diffuser so they can use essential oils to help give their home calming vibes.

    white ceramic vitruvi diffuser on a table with essential oils

    Promising review: "This is a very classy looking diffuser that goes great with the decor in my house — it’s white, stone, and somewhat discreet. It’s not too big so it doesn’t look bulky in a room, but it’s also not too small where it doesn’t diffuse the scent throughout the space. It was very easy to set up, and my favorite feature about this whole thing, aside from the looks, is that it is very quiet! Great purchase!" —Tambra Riddle

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "I use it for coffee in the morning & it keeps the whole cupful hot for a couple of hours! I sip slowly, so this saves me from having to nuke my mug over and over. In the afternoon I use it for tea. Same wonderful warmth & no nuking! In the evening I drink my ice cold cocktail in it. Then I fill with water and place on my nightstand for middle of the night sips. No spills! I hardly use any other cups, mugs, tumblers now that I have this Corckcicle!" —Read by Candlelight

    Promising review: "Pictures look great - lots of options to choose from. I downloaded roughly 200 photos and they consumed 8% of storage - once you make a playlist and the pics are on the frame, it’s so super easy to add to or delete. There is no delay with downloaded pics at all. Remote controls are easily accessed via the app or magnetized remote control that sticks to the back of the frame. Genius!" —Pepper Potts

    light blue Victrola record player with a record

    Promising review: "Measuring about the size of a small 10 to 14-inch laptop PC, but 5 inches deep, this is the perfect portable and stowaway companion for my 40-plus years of LPs... Even the price on this 3-speed stereo turntable was under $50 perfect. It's well worth buying for all those middle and subtle sounds I've been missing in my music and comedy albums. Buy this Victrola portable record player, and FINALLY get your 21st century musical head and ears right --- at a low cost. Your mind, body, soul and ears will thank you." —MooreNoLess
