Truly splurge-worthy gifts that'll make you their favorite person.

Posted on

We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A pair of wireless Bose headphones so you can work out, get a snack, or ignore your text messages while listening to your favorite playlist without being ~tied down~.

anrdoezrs.net

They have immersive sound quality, buttons right on the headphones, up to a 15-hour battery life, and they even let you access Siri or Google voice commands!

Get them from Bose for $179.95.

Promising review: "I have been using these headphones for a couple weeks now and have loved them through and through. The design is great and feels premium. The controls are easily accessible. The headphones sit light on the head and fit well. There is minimum sound bleed and even though they aren't noise canceling, there is way less outside noise filtering in. The sound quality itself is top-notch, especially call quality. The caller's voice is crisp even when he/she is in a noisy place. Active EQ makes sure to give a good bass at higher volumes and a smoother, softer sound at lower volumes. The battery so far has been unbelievable. I not only have charged only twice in the past two weeks, but I have charged to 100% in under two hours. With the ease of wireless connectivity, this pair of headphones combines great sound quality with awesome practicality." —Ntn171

2. An incredibly real-looking faux fur throw blanket to give any home a touch of interior-design-magazine-meets-Winterfell luxe.

amazon.com

Get the largest size from Amazon for $164.57 or Jet for $185.75. Available in 12 colors.

Promising review: (I know it's long, but it is GLOWING) "You know how sometimes when you order an item after you've wanted it for so long, and you've built it up in your mind so much that when it finally arrives you're a bit disappointed? Well, this isn't going to be one of those times. Even after reading multiple glowing reviews, I hesitated to order it. I didn't want to invest $155 in something I would be less than thrilled with so I debated, hedged, and chewed my nails for weeks before finally taking the leap.

"The very first time I lay beneath the soft, graceful folds of this elegant throw to take a nap, I feel in love with it. Dog/animal lovers will understand. It was like snuggling up with a beloved malamute on a cold winter's day, only better. No bed hogging, no sharp nails, no wiggling about, and no messy face slurps; just cozy, comforting warmth. I ordered the full throw size, large enough for hubby and I to snuggle together. It is heavy, but not not too heavy, and adds a homey, designer appeal to room decor. Although faux, the fur is very convincing. It has a nap that looks and feels real, with enough variance in fur shade, length, and texture for a convincing imitation. In fact, while reading a book or watching television I find myself absentmindedly weaving my fingers through the fur as though caressing a dog (or tame wolf or fox); extremely comforting and relaxing. Would I order another — you bet! (I'm trying to convince hubby that he needs his very own ... perhaps the brown mink?)" —LoriA_Seattle

4. Impossibly delicate solid gold bands studded with five diamonds for the perfect subtle sparkle.

etsy.com

Get it from Ant Eva Crafts on Etsy for $112.50 (originally $125). Available in yellow, white, and rose gold. Rings sizes: 2–10.5.

*If you buy two at a time, you get an extra discount too!*

Promising review: "Bought them to wear as stacking rings. The rings are so dainty and look amazing when stacked together. The diamonds, although small, have quite a shiny punch to them. Loved the handiwork and so went and ordered some more items." —Nicey Burnt

5. A 10-in-1 *ultimate* Instant Pot so you can slow-cook, pressure-cook, make rice and yogurt, and so, so, so much more — you can even sous vide in it!

amazon.com

It has 16 smart programs, custom settings, and cook time indicators for your easiest and best Instant Pot experience ever. AND you can sync it with Alexa to guide your cooking!

Get it from Amazon for $149.95.

Promising review: "I have had the Duo and it was great, but this bad boy is EVERYTHING! It has a large digital display. It has a single dial for setting everything. It auto seals, unlike all of the previous models which you have to remember to turn to vent or seal. There is a button to release the pressure — also unlike all of the previous models. There are more options within each of the settings. It has additional presets like cake, egg, sterilize, and ULTRA. The Ultra function allows you to set an exact temperature and with that you can do sous vide cooking. This is the only model to have a cooking graph indicator. It has a strip of stainless on the handle which give it an extra touch of class — again unlike any other model. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Ultra — so much so I have two now. I have cooked beef stew, chili, chicken noodle soup, pork ribs, egg bites, sous vide ribeye steak (OH MY HEAVENS! Best steak I ever ate, and I have eaten a LOT of ribeyes) and the list goes on and on. The price is well worth the investment. You will not be disappointed. The company has a great reputation and has great customer service as well." —ADW

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $199.

Promising review: "Two years ago we rescued our redbone hound from our humane society. He has been a special dog and a wonderful addition to our empty nest. This blueprint was a a perfect Father's Day gift. We personalized it with his name and couldn't be happier with the quality and uniqueness. We love it! Thank you!" —Tracy

7. A Millennium Falcon Lego kit to occupy you during the long wait between the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the next film. ::makes Chewbacca noise of despair::

amazon.com

It's not just a model — you can open it up to see the interior, too! The 1,329-piece kit also features six mini figures with their weapons, including Rey, Finn, Han Solo, and Chewbacca!

Get it from Amazon or Walmart for $111.99

Promising review: "My son spent his birthday money on this set and absolutely loves it. It is cool how the top panels open so he can use the inside, instead of just having a model of the outside of the ship." —Oak

8. A Kindle Paperwhite with a glare-free screen so you feel like you're reading an *actual* book — without having to have to schlep around a heavy 1,000-page volume (looking at you, A Song of Ice and Fire).

amazon.com

Personal note: I love my Kindle Paperwhite so much. It's SO LIGHT that I keep it in my bag at all times — you never know when you're gonna have a spare 15 minutes for a chapter or two.

Get it from Amazon for $119.99+. Available in black and white.

Promising review: "I am in love with my Paperwhite! I have always been a big fan of collecting paper books and have always dreamed of owning a massive library of books, but as someone with limited funds and who travels and moves a lot, carrying a library from town to town and state to state starts making your husband angry! So, from here forward I will be buying my books from Amazon and getting them in a digital version. I couldn't be happier about it. My last Kindle didn't have the backlight so I had to have a small lamp by the side of my bed (which my hubby wasn't the biggest fan of either). The Paperwhite has a gentle light in it that makes reading totally comfortable in all light settings. You can make it very dim or bright and the battery lasts forever!" —Stephanie N Hughes

9. And/or a year's subscription to Kindle Unlimited, a magical service that lets you read an unlimited number of books on any device (including e-readers, smartphones, or desktop computers).

11. A Polaroid Pop instant camera with an LCD viewfinder touchscreen so you can see exactly what you're snapping. With some instant camera features and some digital camera features, it's like the best of both worlds!

anrdoezrs.net, amazon.com

You can share photos with family and friends on the app and/or print them right on the spot. Plus, you can use the app to edit, filter, and add stickers and text to your photos too!

Get it from Amazon for American Eagle for $199. Available in six colors.

Promising review: "My first instant camera and what a HIT! I have never owned a Polaroid and was very skeptical to purchase this one. I wanted to get the Fuji, but couldn’t get over the bulky size of the camera. I was afraid that it would take up most of my purse. This appeared to be much smaller and sleeker. It looks on par with my cell phone. I like the large screen and being able to see what I snap before printing. The editing feature are quite cool. I haven’t used all the border and stickers – those seem designed for kids, not for me. But the writing feature and other things appear well done. The prints take about one minute to come out. I plan to use this at my holiday party. Hope it will be a hit. Want to use the pictures for keepsakes and entertainment during the dinner. As a camera, this seems awesome. Excellent job, Polaroid." —Amazon Customer

12. A fun duvet set that'll take any kid's dreams to the next level — you can get it in a dinosaur print, ballerina print, mermaid print, astronaut print, and more.

amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $119+. Sizes: twin and full/queen. Available in eight patterns.

Promising review: "I bought this for my niece and nephew. They actually openly fight over who gets to use it. It's a great duvet. Super soft and a great conversation piece. So excited to see this as part of Oprah's Favorite Things as we are big SNURK fans here!!" —ShellyMonster

13. A reversible, smartphone-charging tote for the busiest bee you know who always carries *everything* around with them.

Uncommon Goods

Get it from Uncommon Goods or Amazon for $119.95.

Promising review: "This was purchased as going-away gift for a treasured team member who is relocating. It could not be more perfect! The tote is high quality and made well. Being reversible is a bonus. The charging unit is a same high-quality leather zippered pouch that can be removed easily for charging. It is roomy enough for a small laptop, file folders, purse, and possibly an extra pair of shoes. I shared this with many of my friends prior to wrapping and all of us are hoping Santa considers this for us in a few months!" —Terri

14. A holly jolly printed Opposuit that'll guarantee a win when it comes to who's best dressed at the holiday party.

amazon.com

15. A birchwood map of the world with metal paper airplane pins so you can mark where you've been and where you want to go!

Get it from Enjoy the Wood on Etsy for $179.10+ (for the standard-size map plus 30 airplane pins). Available in five colors, or you can customize your own.

amazon.com, BuzzFeed

Get it from Amazon or Jet for $139. Available in five colors.

Check out a BuzzFeeder's review (spoiler alert: It's my review) of the Luna Mini 2 here (it's #7!).

Promising review: "I have very dry skin and when I exfoliate too vigorously my skin gets dry patches. I've been using this regularly for the past four months and I can honestly say, my skin has never looked better. I use both sides for a total of two minutes with my Burt's Bees mild cleanser. I've only charged this device once and I'll moderate the intensity as needed. Overall, I love this device and am so happy that I bought it." —Charles and Jenn

19. A Tasty One Top, an all-in-one cooktop that'll pair with your phone (and the Tasty app) so you can take each recipe step by step — it even adjusts the temperature and power settings to match each part of the recipe perfectly.

goo.gl

Get it from Tasty One Top for $149 (currently on sale from $175). Available in blue and black.

PSST!...BuzzFeed makes money if you buy this!

20. A Philips Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush with four modes, three intensities, and three different brush heads so you can customize your cleaning to your dental needs. And it has sensors to show you on your smartphone where you missed so you can improve your brushing habits. (It's one of Oprah's Favorite Things!).

amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $169.99 or Walmart for $174.97. Available in five colors.

Promising review: "Bought this at the suggestion of my dentist. I particularly like the pressure sensor and the indication that you are brushing too fast. The timer is also very helpful. The app itself tracking focus areas for brushing I find a bit inaccurate but it does help. Overall very pleased. It is a toothbrush that feels like what a dentist uses when I get a check up. Expensive most definitely but it gets the job done very effectively." —Richard

21. A truly giant dollhouse mansion complete with eight rooms, 34 pieces of furniture, an elevator, and large windows so you can look at it from all angles.

amazon.com

It has over 1,400 reviews on Amazon!

Get it from Amazon or Walmart for $125.97.

Promising review: "This was a Christmas gift for our granddaughter (now age two) and I am very happy to report that she loves it! It seems quite sturdy and it's sufficiently complex that it keeps her entertained longer than any of her other toys. Speaking as someone of a certain age, most kids today seem to have a whole lot to choose from in the way of toys, and that one of them is not only the favorite but gets lots of sustained use says something to me. Worth the price, from grandpa's point of view!" —Geoffrey B.

22. A Samsung Gear virtual reality device that'll prove that the future is already here. Just pop in any Samsung smartphone and prepare to be amazed.

amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $128.

Promising review: "I don't say this lightly...#mindblown!! I installed a free app called Face Your Fears and I had to rip this VR off my head because it was so intense, but I mean that in a good way. I was super afraid this was over hyped, but as my first VR experience... this met and surpassed what I was hoping! Absolutely love this Gear VR. (I used a Samsung Galaxy S8+)" —Jennifer M. Sawyer

23. A gorgeous clear acrylic bar cart, because you should really share the gift of good taste. And because if you give them a bar cart, they'll serve you booze when you visit.

anrdoezrs.net

Get it from World Market for $199.99.

Promising review: "Love love love this bar cart! Looks absolutely adorable and doesn't take up a ton of visual space." —Heidi

24. An extra-thorough DNA-testing kit that'll not only tell you about your ancestry and family history, but also about your genes and what they could say about your health and traits.

Get it from Amazon for $149.

Promising review: "Buying this test was the best money I have ever spent in my entire life. The knowledge they give you is incredible. I wish everyone had a chance to know and understand their DNA. I wish it was given automatically to all newborns. I just ordered kits for three family members.

"23andme is not just ancestry, you get so much more. Here's a few things I got out of it...

1) I learned about my ancestry and how I am 24% Lithuanian, which was spot on as my grandma was born there.

2) I have at least 1000 cousins (3rd, 4th and 5th cousins.)

3) I can see a map of where my relatives are located and can be contacted/contact them if they also opted in for communication.

4) I learned I do not carry the breast cancer genes (thank god!)

5) I learned I do carry a mutation that lowers cholesterol and helps guard against heart disease (looked that gene up after seeing it in the news.)

6) Anytime I see any study in the news about genetics and how they found this gene associated with this disease etc, I can log in to 23andme, pull up my data and see if I carry that mutation or not. So geeky, but soooo cool.

7) I learned I have the mthfr mutation and was able to read more about what this means so I can make better choices regarding which types of folate I consume.

8) I learned I have a double mutation that effects b12 processing which could explain why I have always been low in b12. I will now ensure I get more b12 and monitor my levels with my doctor for the rest of my life.

9) I gained a new outlook on people. I think it's so incredibly that we are all essentially 'written in code.' It's this code that defines our health, how we look and to an extent, even how we act." —Jess

26. An aromatherapy pendant necklace so you can take your favorite essential oils and scents on the go. Just add or remove the oil-filled wicks of your choosing depending on your mood.

anthropologie.com

It comes with three wicks already included: calm, focus, and energy blends.

Get it from Anthropologie for $125. Available in yellow, white, and rose gold.

Promising review: "I can't stop talking to my friends about the Cor pendant! Not only does it have a sleek and unique look, but it also offers all the benefits of aromatherapy in an amazingly convenient way. The best thing about owning this piece is that I don't have to necessarily pair it with every outfit; I often will slip it in my bag or jacket as an on-the go accessory. My color is rose gold and my (current) favorite is 'calm.' I highly recommend this necklace as a beautiful and multi-purpose piece." —Smurray

27. A Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso maker that'll make your morning routine so much less stressful. Just pop in a pod (both espresso shots and full-size coffees available) and press a button. Caffeine is ready!!

amazon.com

It heats up in 15 seconds and has a 40-ounce water tank so you don't have to fill it every morning.

Get it from Amazon for $125.99. Available in five colors.

Promising review: "I like iced coffee with high caffeine. This fits the bill perfectly and is a joy to use and drink. My Starbucks monthly bill has come down considerably after buying this unit, and I'm ready to hit the ground running that much sooner in the morning. I especially enjoy the self cleaning feature and the ability to run it for smaller or larger cup sizes. Truly a premium product." —David T.

28. A pair of classic-for-a-reason shearling Ugg slippers with hard soles because you will NOT want to take them off when you have to go outsie to take out the trash.

Nordstrom

They have almost 2,000 reviews on Nordstrom alone!

Get them from Nordstrom for $119.95 or Amazon for $119+. Sizes: 5–12. Available in three colors.

Promising review: "Best slippers in the world! I've had my Coquette slippers in chestnut for three years now and prior to a dog destroying them, they have been in the best shape anyone could imagine. The soles are ideal for indoor and outdoor wear, this is what makes them so durable. I am live in the north where it snows every winter, and not only are the soles great for durability and lifetime of the slipper, they are great for traction. Speaking of snowy winters, my feet do not get cold if I'm only wearing these slippers outside in the snow either. Great slippers for everything!" —Kingy

29. A Nintendo 2DS XL for a lightweight and portable gaming system you can take wherever you go. You know you miss having your Gameboy with you.

amazon.com

You can play all Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS and most Nintendo DS games in 2D on it!

Get it from Amazon for $149 or Walmart for $149.99.

Promising review: "Amazing product for those who want to save a little bit of money and not care much for the 3D feature. The system is very sleek and streamlined — it is slimmer and lighter compared to the 3D version. The bezels are a lot smaller too. The upgraded hardware really makes a difference, everything runs faster, from loading times to game performance. The screen is very large and bright, the buttons click and responsive. The added second stick with the additional two bumpers make controlling some games simply amazing. The only downside is that the speakers are quiet compared to the 3D, and the top screen feels a little bit floppy. Over all, a fantastic product that opens you up to an amazing library of games." —Consumerism

30. A Drybar texturizing gift set complete with curling iron (with a rotating barrel used by Drybar stylists themselves), compact on-the-go detailing iron, alligator jaw clips, texturizing spray, and styling paste.

31. A personalized whiskey barrel to make any at-home bar *finally* complete. #HomeGoals

It'll infuse whiskey with extra flavor thanks to the oak wood, which adds vanilla and marzipan-esque notes, coconut flavors, and tannins.

Get it from Uncommon Goods: a two-liter barrel for $85 or a five-liter barrel for $110. For a little extra, you can also include a rum and whiskey making kit!

Promising review: "Hubby has our basement set up as the ultimate man cave with a sports bar theme and small brewery. He pretty much has it all...so he thought!! This whiskey barrel was the perfect gift and is one of the highlights to his ultimate man cave. I did order the five liter with the rum and whiskey kit and am so glad I did. It was the perfect size for the bar counter. The personalization was also gorgeous...thank you for creating such an amazing product!!" —Best gift giving wife ever!!

32. A mini (but bright and powerful) multimedia projector perfect for turning any room into a movie or gaming room. Just plug in your phone, gaming system, streaming stick, or laptop.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $99.99. Also available in black.

Promising review: "Bought this projector for an outdoor movie screening event in my backyard. I couldn't have been more pleased with the picture quality, brightness and the sound (although I did decide to hook up my in-home surround sound system/blu ray player to it, which was super easy). I've since connected my Roku stick with the provided HDMI cable and streamed Netflix through the projector, attached my JBL bluetooth speaker with an AUX cable, and even used the HDMI to connect my MacBook so we could watch old home movies and flip through photos through the projector. One of the best purchases I've made in years. Love this mini projector." —Jeff OWTK

anrdoezrs.net

36. A pretty lavender turntable with speakers you can use to play your favorite records or your go-to playlist — just connect your device via bluetooth.

anrdoezrs.net

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $169. Also available in white.

Promising review: "I've had a few record players over the years and was looking to upgrade. If you're looking for simple, no frills, this is it. Easy instructions, speakers, and Bluetooth to hookup your phone and play tunes. P.S. The speakers get loud, like party level loud. Some of the reviews have been negative on the other colors. I don't know if they got a broken player, or just forgot to take off the safety cap on the needle? I took a chance on this record player, I'm glad I did!! Love the lilac gray color!!" —Sophster88

37. A gorgeous Penguin hardcover boxed set of six Charles Dickens novels; they're a fancy addition to any small or large library.

amazon.com

Get the set of six from Amazon for $107.48 or Barnes and Noble for $103.49.

Promising review: "Excellent quality and beautifully presented collection. Worth the expense." —Stephen N. Linturn

38. Or a Hogwarts trunk full of all seven Harry Potter books, because if you're not passing on your love for HP, what are you even doing?

amazon.com

Get it from Amazon or Walmart for $110.99.

Promising review: "This is a superb quality set of books. It comes very well packaged and ours arrived pristine, despite it weighing about 20lbs.

The books are wrapped in clear plastic inside the chest, which means you can open the chest to look at them once it arrives, but the recipient gets new wrapped books. The chest is sturdy board, with string/thin rope handles. It has a hard black plastic slide catch, which does look like it will last. On the top is an address label, with a big "deliver to........Hogwarts" stamp, which looks very realistic and adds a nice touch. You can add your child's name to the label. This is a real heirloom set of books, which I hope that all three of my children will read. Although I did not open the plastic protective wrapping on the books, they look to be well-bound and great quality." —AAS (NY)
