Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. 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 $169.99 (available in three sizes and 11 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

    2. A whole VAULT of Colourpop Lippie Stix for the person who could never (and I mean never, ever, ever) have enough shades of velvety gorgeousness.

    Colourpop

    They have a pen-like applicator that makes creating a sharp cupid's bow increeeeedibly easy. And the color payoff? ::chef's lipstick-applied kiss:: I have personally been told that my lip line was "suspiciously perfect" after using these!

    Get the box of 48 Lippie Stix from Colourpop for $115 (a $288 value!).

    Promising review: "I love this set of Lippie Stix. It is the perfect addition to my makeup collection. When ever I am indecisive of what lip color I wanna wear, I just play around with these until I find one that suits my outfit and eye look for the day." —Briseida

    3. A mini (but bright and powerful) multimedia projector to turn any room into a movie or gaming room. Just plug in a phone, gaming system, streaming stick, or laptop.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    Promising review: "Very happy with this projector. Even though the dimensions are listed, I was still a bit surprised a how small the unit actually is. Even with the projector 15 feet away from the screen it is quite bright, certainly bright enough for a movie outdoors, which is what we bought it for to begin with. I was also pleased to find out I can plug my Roku Streaming Stick+ directly into the HDMI and USB port which made for a very small footprint of stuff I need to bring outdoors to project a movie. All in all very happy with the performance and price of this unit." —Gary C.

    4. An Amazon Fire TV stick they can simply plug into they existing TV and stream all the shows, movies, and music they want.

    Amazon

    Use the voice button to find shows, launch apps, search for type of movie ("Alexa find suspense thrillers") OR EVEN ORDER A PIZZA from Dominos!

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    Promising review: "We have been getting steady increases in ourcCable TV bill with no increases in services. So we thought we would cut the cord and this device became the focal point for making that transition. We are very pleased with the performance of this device. It is easy to setup with prompts provided as you power it up. We then added our favorite apps, (also very easy), and have never looked back at the Cable TV being gone. We now save over $100 a month without those charges for Cable TV. If you are thinking of making the leap into cord cutting, this is the way to go." —Stephen H. Jenkins

    5. A Hamilton Beach panini press that'll create deliciously brown, crispy outsides and gooey, non-crushed insides for the ultimate sandwich every time. Or the ultimate wrap, quesadilla, *croissandwich*, or anything else that floats their boat.

    Amazon

    Flips upright to store, so it won't take up a ton of counter space, and the nonstick top and bottom plates will ensure all the cheese ends up on your sandwich, NOT burnt on the plates.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    Promising review: "Whether you are a college student, single urbanite, panini lover, or just want a questionable gift, you needn't look any further than this. You may think now that you could have no conceivable need for a panini press, but with some culinary creativity it can become a hugely versatile tool. Other presses do more and maybe do it better, but those can exceed $150 for the same overall effect. I love mine and I recommend that you get one as well." —andrewn2468

    6. A Imperial Star Destroyer Lego kit to occupy them after Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker comes out and there's...no new movie to look forward to. ::makes Chewbacca noise of despair::

    Amazon

    It's not just a model — you can open it up to see the interior, too! The 1,416-piece kit also features five mini figures: Supreme Leader Snoke, First Order Officer, First Order Stormtrooper Sergeant, First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Shuttle Pilot, BB-9E and buildable Medical Droid figures.

    Get it from Amazon for $182.72.

    Promising review: "This 58-year-old kid had a blast assembling this model. Lego engineering is top notch as all parts connect perfectly and securely. I had expected to use glue on the model as I intend to hang the finished product but glue is not necessary. I can pick up the entire model by any piece or part of the overall Star Destroyer. The instructions are fool proof...they are organized into a 250 page book which is very detailed and easy to follow. Any 10 year old with a bit of patience can assemble this if he or she can keep dad from jumping in! Actually, this would make an excellent project for a father and son/daughter." —Hoosier Boy

    7. A 12-pound weighted blanket (it's called a calm-forter) that'll feel just like a soothing hug for an added dose of security. And unlike other weighted versions, this just looks like a regular fleece blanket a with a silky side and a nubby side for fully customizable relaxation.

    Amazon

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

    Promising review: "I purchased this blanket for my 16-year-old daughter. I have been wanting to get one for her for a while now as she has always had difficulty falling asleep and waking up feeling rested. She is entering her senior year of high school and struggles with a lot of worry, anxiety, and overwhelming feelings that teenagers and adults can experience. The color is gorgeous and the weight of the blanket (12lbs.) is perfect. It is weighted enough to make you feel comfortable and cozy underneath it but not too heavy as to make you feel constricted or overheated. Last night was her first night with the blanket and so as you can imagine, when I heard her wake, I hurried into her room to ask how she slept! I am happy to say that she loves it, and that 'the blanket is so comfy and feels like a big hug!' She woke up feeling rested and is excited to have it to take with her to college next year. I am thinking of purchasing another one in the near future. It is well worth the price and my daughter and I are so happy with the quality and comfort of this item." —N.Carolina1

    8. A luxe velvet House robe they're sure to think was woven with magic — that's how soft these are. Gladrags Wizardwear wishes it could.

    PB Teen

    Santa, if you're reading this, I'll take a Ravenclaw in a S/M.

    Get them from PB Teen for $88.99 each (originally $149; available in sizes S/M and L/XL, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, and Gryffindor listed separately).

    9. Or a Snowe Spa Set with a mega-plush (and mega-absorbent) robe, plus their ~Rinse and Repeat~ candle, scented with Calla Lily and green leaves for a super refreshing atmosphere.

    Snowe

    Get the set from Snowe for $125 (robe available in sizes XS–L and three colors).

    Promising review: "Super comfy! The material is super absorbent and warm. I got the grey and love the color. High quality and seems very durable. I highly recommend!" —John I.

    10. A two-device wireless charger so they can power up their phone, headphones, and more just by dropping it down. Tangled, fraying cords are just annoying.

    Amazon

    Psst! This was one of Oprah's Favorite Things 2019. Check out our guide to both her best under-$50 faves *and* her most splurge-worthy faves!

    It's designed with Italian leather so it'll look stylish on your countertop or desk, too.

    Get it from Amazon for $150 (available in five colors)

    11. A reversible puffer jacket that's like giving two coats in one: quilted with a kangaroo pocket, or unquilted with pockets at the sides.

    Hill City

    It's deceptively light, with PrimaLoft insulation to keep you toasty but not feeling overly bundled.

    Get it from Hill City for $178 (available in sizes S–XXL and three colors).

    Promising review: "So light for something that's so warm! Feels like I'm wearing a shirt Will get another one in black. I love it!" —Louis

    12. A hilarious (and actually useful) post–zombie apocalypse survival guide, including over 80 recipes, food scavenging tips, and illustrated guides on living in the wilderness, whether the undead are after them (and their tasty brain) or not.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.96.

    Promising review: "This is fantastic!! I got it for a friends zombie bug-out bag Christmas gift and now I want to keep it for myself. The writing is witty and funny all while providing great practical information. Then illustrations are done very well and are easy to follow. I love how the lay out starts are the beginning when food and supply are plentiful and ends with survival for the 'long haul.' Will be purchasing another one." —J

    13. A subscription to BuzFeed Tasty's ~cookie club~; they'll get four seasonal kits with everything they need to whip up delicious treats, from gingerbread houses to an upgraded chocolate chip cookie to unicorn pinwheels. Magic!

    Get a subscription to all four seasonal kits for $119.96.

    14. A vintagey 8-in-1 entertainment center that'll do it all: play records, stream music from your phone via Bluetooth, record from vinyl, CD, or cassette directly to USB, AND play CDs, cassettes, aaaaand AM/FM radio.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $114.99+ (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "We purchased this for my father-in-law, age 92, and wanted simplicity for him to be able to digitize his phonographs which is something he wanted to do. This was not only simple for him to use it also had GREAT SOUND. We were amazed. It really made the old phonographs some awesome. We thought we'd have to connect to external speakers to give it better sound (which the unit has connections for external speakers if you desire to do so)...but that was not necessary. The speakers delivered fine sound. We were very happy with this purchase. We will probably order one for ourselves. This 8 in 1 records to USB. We are very pleased." —Janine

    15. A (thinner! waterproof!) Kindle Paperwhite with a glare-free screen so they feel like they'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

    Personal note: I love the last edition of the 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.

    If you buy two Kindles before November 15th, you save 10%!

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (also available in blue).

    Promising review: "What would I do without my Kindle? I use it all the time, and really enjoy the convenience of the built-in light and the touch screen. I also love the fact that I can quickly look up a word I don't yet know (especially for medieval historical fiction). I've been a voracious reader my entire life, and never thought I would go so smoothly from paper to an electronic book. One of the best things I've ever done." —Infomapper

    16. And a bath caddy so they can soak up some great lit while soaking in the tub — this one has room for a beverage, snack, candle, and of course their new waterproof Kindle Paperwhite.

    Amazon

    The expandable arms fit most tubs and have rubber on the bottom to keep it from slipping, plus the book holder is protected by a waterproof cloth to keep any errant splashes away. AND the bamboo is coated in a water-resistant lacquer to keep any mold and mildew at bay.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

    Promising review: "Love this beautiful bamboo tray! I used it the first night it arrived (fast shipping!). The adjustable angle stand works great for leaning my iPad against. The phone slot, wine glass holder and extra storage space for a towel, mug or candle are great! My bathtub is small, but it expands quite long." —Lisa Gyllenberg

    17. A Foxybae straightening hair brush with tourmaline ceramic technology to sleekify, prevent frizz, and up the shine level in just a few quick strokes — without ~flattening~ any volume.

    Foxybae

    It heats up to 365° in a few seconds (the max temperature is 450°), and glides through hair so each strand gets straightened easily.

    Get it from Foxybae for $149.95.

    Promising review: "It's faster than a flat iron, it doesn't leave a burning hair smell it gives you volume. I have waved hair and very thin so it gets tangled a lot and with this brush, it was the easiest and fastest way I've ever done my hair. Recommend 100%." —Solymar

    18. An HP portable photo printer that'll print photos on-the-go for trendy photo-within-a-photo Instagrams or at home for easy wall décor.

    Amazon

    It's pocket-sized and ready to go anywhere! AND you can edit photos before printing to make them *extra* artsy!

    Get it from Amazon for $129.85 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Look, I never write reviews. However, I was pleasantly SHOCKED by how clear my photos came out. This is my third try at portable printers, and it's BY FAR the best. My family travels a lot and my kids like to do scrapbooking on the go, but now we don't have to rely on low quality instant pictures! Plus, the sticky back makes them easier to get in your scrapbook!" —patootie10902205

    19. A gift card to Trunk Club's subscription service for anyone who is tired of lit'rally everything in their closet.

    Trunk Club

    Here's how it works: You give 'em a gift card. Your loved one signs up and gets a selection of handpicked clothing, chosen for *them* by a stylist — straight to their door.

    20. A vintage-style blueprint poster personalized for their pet. Because their pupper is an icon and deserves the very best.

    Uncommon Goods

    Just hit the personalize button, select the dog's breed and gender, enter their name, and it's good to go!

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $185.

    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 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

    21. *THE* Amazon Coat, a chicly oversized parka that'll keep them warm — and make everyone think you splurged big time. Mega style and mega warmth for around $140? Sign me up.

    amazon.com

    I bought this on Prime Day and it is SO NICE AND TOASTY WARM.

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99 (available in sizes XXS–5X and six colors)

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying, my husband says that I am obsessed with coats. Out of probably 20 winter coats, this is now my absolute favorite! I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this coat; I love everything about it! The quality is outstanding! I have had every expensive brand-name winter coat, but have never ever had one that has kept me this warm! I I'm not even looking forward to the warmer months because I don't want to put this coat away!! Every time I wear it, I get at least one, 'I love your coat!'" —Suzi Linthorst

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

    Etsy

    Get it from Ant Eva Crafts on Etsy for $124.95+ (originally $147+; available in yellow, white, and rose gold and rings sizes 3.5–11).

    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

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

    instagram.com

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

    Get the six-quart size from Amazon for $93.92 (also available in three- and eight-quart sizes).

    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

    24. A pair of knit sneaks made from recycled ocean and single-use plastics for a green gift that's also really darn stylish and comfy.

    Greats

    Despite the chunky bottom, they're about the same weight as a running shoe so they can strut their stuff without feeling weighed down.

    Get them from Greats for $119 (available in sizes 6–10 and seven colors).

    25. A board of wizard's chess for spontaneous (and ruthless) games.

    amazon.com

    "That's totally barbaric."

    "That's Wizard's chess."

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    Promising review: "I bought this chess set for my son, for Christmas. Not only was he thrilled to receive a replica of the set from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, but he (a 13-yr-old) spent time admiring the set. The pieces are a plastic with speckles, to make it look like stone, and the board is glossy. He was impressed that the pieces came in organza bags printed with gold foil 'Harry Potter.' I am actually thinking of buying a second set, for my younger son, and I wasn't exciting about spending more than $30 the first time, but it was well worth the $45 I paid." —Rose

    26. 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

    Get it from Amazon for $129 (available in sizes twin and full/queen and 12 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

    27. 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 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

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

    Opposuits

    Get a holiday suit from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in sizes 36–52 and 15 Christmas patterns) or Opposuits for $99.99 (available in sizes 36–52 and 28 holiday patterns)

    Check out of fun suits (in both men's and women's styles) on Amazon or Opposuits.

    (Another personal note: I bought this two years ago for our company holiday party and wore the blazer — it looks awesome IRL).

    29. A 100% Mongolian cashmere sweater with detailing at the neckline to make it look like a vintage-y sweatshirt for a dose of cozy, casual cool.

    Everlane

    Get it from Everlane for $100 (available in sizes XXS–XL and five colors).

    Promising review: "This is literally the softest and most comfortable cashmere from Everlane yet! It’s the perfect weight, not too hot and not too thin so you need a shirt under it. I need one in ever color!" —NYak

    30. A pair of Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones so they can work out, get a snack, or ignore text messages while listening to their favorite playlist — all without being ~tied down~.

    Amazon

    I have these and use them just about every day at work — I like that they don't overheat my ears, and sometimes I forget I'm in an open floor plan and just jam out with some ridiculous head-bobbing dancing.

    Get them from Amazon for $199.95 (available in nine colors).

    Promising review: "These headphones are amazing! The sound is great and clear, they get loud, noise canceling when music is playing, basically noise canceling even when music isn’t playing. They are comfortable except after a few hours of constant use they start to hurt your ears but that is like any over ear headphones. The battery life also lasts soooo long, they are great headphones, I definitely recommend!" —Dixie Freeman

    These also won best $$$ wireless headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    31. A countertop Aerogarden for growing all the herbs you want (no backyard required). And thanks to the LED grow lights, plus a watering-reminding system, no green thumb required either.

    Macy's

    The grow lights are energy efficient (aka they turn on and off automatically), and it tells you when to water (and feed with the included Miracle Grow plant food!) the baby greens, so these herbs'll basically grow themselves. The system comes with seed pods to grow Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil. Y U M!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $129.99 (originally $189.99; also available in green).

    Promising review: "I love to cook, so the thought of having fresh herbs and veggies right on my kitchen counter was exciting. However, I had never had much success gardening. This new Goodful AeroGarden changed that for me. I made the best caprese salad I have ever eaten last week with some fresh basil from my garden. My kids actually enjoy helping me harvest and eat something green. It is freezing outside right now, but we still have fresh produce growing in our home! I can't believe it works this well. If you enjoy cooking or gardening, I would highly recommend." —FreshMom

    32. A TSA-approved shaving kit that'll impress any travel aficionado who hates sacrificing facial care while away. This has eeeeeeverything they need, in an easy-to-pack system.

    The Art of Shaving

    It includes (deep breath) The Art of Shaving's unscented pre-shave oil, unscented shaving cream, unscented after shave balm, a shaving brush, the Jet Black Morris Park five-blade razor, and an eight-count of Fusion ProShield manual cartridges.

    Get it from The Art of Shaving for $133.

    33. A year-long subscription to Atlas Coffee Club, which will deliver a 12-ounce bag of beans (enough for about ~30 cups of coffee) per month, each from a different region, with info about the tasting profile, brewing recommendations, and a postcard about that place!

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    We're learning *and* we're caffeinating — it's a win-win!

    Get a 12-month subscription to Atlas Coffee Club for $199 (or get a 6-month subscription for $109 or a 3-month subscription for $60).

    34. A levitating moon lamp to add a touch of truly out-of-this-world magic to their home.

    amazon.com

    It's made by 3D printer for a perfectly seamless look.

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    Promising review: "I love this levitating moon and use it as a light on my end table in my bedroom. Do not get discouraged, it will float, start out about two inches above the base in the center. The LED is bright enough to read from and mine has never stopped rotating. You can turn the LED light on or off by pressing the switch on the wooden base. Anyone who has seen it is amazed and asks me where I got it." —Neil E.

    35. A silicone face-cleaning brush that'll be like treating them to a whole year's worth of facials. It vibrates to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil, timing the process so they can get the whole job done in 60 seconds.

    BuzzFeed

    Oh look that's me! I LOVE my Foreo and use it LIT'RALLY every day — it really works!

    Get it from Foreo for $139 (available in five colors).

    Check out my review of the Luna Mini 2 for all the info!

    36. A Philips Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush with four modes, three intensities, and three different brush heads so they can customize their cleaning to their dental needs.

    amazon.com

    And it has sensors to show on a smartphone where they missed so they can improve your brushing habits. (It was one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2017!).

    Get it from Amazon for $189.95 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Even though I'd only had this for a few weeks after replacing a cheap electric toothbrush, I am absolutely floored by the quality. My dentist was HAPPY with my teeth for literally the first time since I've been seeing him. I have a very tightly packed mouth that is really hard to brush thoroughly. Dentist didn't even have to get out the power toothbrush for more than a few back molars. The charging cup looks beautiful in the bathroom. A major investment purchase, but cheaper than deep cleanings or fillings under nitrous oxide!" —HyperlexicXMan

    This won best $$$ electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    37. A simple 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.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $156.79.

    Promising review: "Very stylish bar cart for much less than most.

    Has a Johnathan Adler look for a quarter of the price. Buy it! It’s adorable and chic! A Palm Springs touch to your space." —mysterymm7

    38. A subscription to Rosetta Stone so they can prepare for your upcoming trip together. Don't have one booked? Time to check it out!

    Rosetta Stone

    They have 25 languages to choose from! Better bookmark that Google Flights page.

    Get a 3-, 6-, 12-, or 24-month subscription for as low as $35.97 (price per month decreases with longer subscriptions).

    39. An aromatherapy pendant necklace so they can take their favorite essential oils and scents on the go. Just add or remove the oil-filled wicks choosing depending on the mood.

    Anthropologie

    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

    40. A pressure washer that'll honestly be one of the most satisfying gifts they ever get. Just look at this review photo!

    amazon.com

    It can be used horizontally or vertically (up to 20 feet high!) for maximum cleaning — plus a soap applicator for really intense jobs.

    Get it from Amazon for $99+ (available in three strengths).

    Promising review: "Well, this is one of the more impressive products I have bought. And I hate most stuff. In fact, I'm surprised Amazon has not turned off my account, I feel like I'm constantly returning things. I used to power wash my driveway and concrete pathways with a huge expensive 3K PSI gas smelling temperamental power washer. Sure this is not as powerful, but it is AMAZINGLY powerful. Unexpectedly powerful. It is small, handheld, I can almost imagine just adding a strap or two and wearing on my back (if you did, you would need a very flexible hose). It comes with two nozzle tips, one you can use safely to powerwash your car or more sensitive things." —Ashlar Stone

    41. An LED light-up makeup mirror with bright and dimmed modes *plus* a USB charging port, built-in speaker, and voice assistant controls so they can apply flawless foundation, jam out to their fave tunes, leave with a fully-charged phone, *and* call a cab — all with just this mirror.

    Amazon

    It has a removable four-inch 10X magnified spot mirror too!

    Get it from Amazon for $181.79.

    Promising review: "I honestly thought since my wife is actually really good at her makeup and VERY particular over literally everything when it comes to the products she uses that she would hate this. I was wrong. She loves it and uses it every day. Built really well and worth the money. The cheaper stuff doesn't look as nice or perform as well. Also she loves the usb port for charging her phone and the bluetooth speakers." —Shawn Dickison

    42. A waxed canvas messenger bag for a perfect happy medium between polished profesh and cool casual. While holding eeeeeverything they need, with pockets for their laptop, phone, note pads, water bottle, and pens.

    Nisolo

    Get it from Nisolo for $158 (also available in leather for $298).

    Promising review: "I have enjoyed the use of this bag for an entire semester of graduate school at this point. After trying a couple of messenger bags before this one (that were more expensive), they just didn't feel right or compromised in design in some kind of way. This bag is brilliant. For my minimal packing ideals and daily carries, this bag is perfect. It fits an iPad, laptop, external battery, pencil, pen, charging cables for all the things, a medium sized notebook, with a pocket left over I usually pack with consumables/snacks, with room to spare for a water bottle in the designated spot within the bag. Truly, this bag, especially for the price, is a god-send. Excellent material choices for durability/survivability/aesthetics.Thank you for this product! Looking into the shoe lines now." —Daniel K.

    43. A Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso maker that'll make their 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 $125.13+ (available in five colors, plus in bundle options with coffee or a milk frother).

    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.

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

    Nordstrom

    They have over 1,000 reviews on Nordstrom alone!

    Get them from Nordstrom for $119.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and six 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

    45. The Nintendo Switch Lite, which will keep them entertained with video games for hours, whether they're at home or on their commute.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $199.96 (available in four colors, and options to bundle with a memory card).

    Promising review: "This feels sooo much better in the hands than the bulkier original Switch, that I can't go back. Even though its lighter, it feels more solid as the Joycons do not come off, and it doesn't bend like the old one did. My arms don't get tired at all holding this. AND it had an actual D-pad! I also do not notice the smaller screen when playing, at all. It's just a much more pleasant handheld experience, which is exactly why I got it." —J. Fox

    Check out our Nintendo Switch Lite review for all the details!

    46. A TodayTix gift card to make a dream come true for anyone who loves live shows. It can be used to purchase tickets in tons of major cities — and would be great for someone planning on visiting NYC to see some Broadway action!

    48. A stylish acrylic Squatty Potty to make pooping easier so constipation is no longer a #1 (or should we say #2) consternation.

    amazon.com

    If you somehow still don't know what a Squatty Potty is, it's a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your Puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that's TMI, just try it and see.

    Get it from Amazon for $78.76.

    Promising review: "Very useful product, a bathroom essential! I upgraded to the acrylic model to better go with my bathroom, which is bright and airy but cramped, and this does the trick well. Sturdy and attractive, blends in well." —Laurie

    49. A two-door smoker for anyone who either 1. already loves making ribs, briskets, and other smoked deliciousness or 2. watches a lot of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and would like to recreate some of the magic at home.

    Masterbuilt

    Seriously, all the briskets I've seen on Triple D.....wow. Gorgeous.

    This bb has over 700 square inches of cooking space, four removable racks, and a stainless steel burner — plus two doors (to save heat if you open just one!).

    Get it from Cabela's for $189.99.

    Promising review: "This turned out to be a good purchase for me. I enjoy cooking and smoking all types of meats. Sausage, chicken, ribs, filets of beef and pork, hamburger, hotdogs, are among the many. I adjust the heat knob place water in the tray and wet soaked wood in stove bottom and let it do it’s job." —Richnelly

    50. A powerful Ninja blender so you can basically give the gift of never-ending margaritas. And smoothies. And dips. And sauces. It even has a heating element that can boil water in minutes. Helloooooo fondue night.

    Amazon

    That means no transferring from stove to blender — and no extra pot to wash.

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (it's 40% off right now from $169.99).

    Promising review: "I love this blender! I received a Vitamix blender as a gift years ago. I loved the features it offered; however, I couldn’t justify paying $500+ for a blender. Sadly, I hated it; that blender sits in my storage unit collecting dust. Recently I was staying with a friend and had the opportunity to use her Ninja blender; it was great! As soon as I got home I opened the Amazon app in search of that blender and I found this beauty. I love that it had a glass jar and that it offered the heat setting; the only thing I was worried about was that it had the traditional blender set-up with the few blades at the very bottom of the jar, was this really going to be able to get things smooth? But, at a quarter of the price of the Vitamix and free returns, I decided to give it a go as I had nothing to lose. Everything I have made so far, from smoothies, to soups and sauces have turned out perfectly. I was a little hesitant to invest over $100 on another blender, especially after the Vitamix experience, but after giving this a try, I have no regrets about my decision; it actually inspired me to order the Ninja foodi air crisp pressure cooker, hopefully that will be as amazing as this blender." —kvg3819

    51. A personalized whiskey barrel to complete any at-home bar. #HomeGoals

    Uncommon Goods

    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!!

    52. A snow leopard faux fur coat I would personally like to pet all day. They're going to throw it on over EVERYTHING all winter and think of you every. single. time.

    Calvin Klein

    Get it from Calvin Klein for $140 (originally $280; available in sizes XS–XL).

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

    Amazon

    Get the set of six from Amazon for $76.69.

    Promising review: "This set of books by Dickens is worth every penny. The cloth-bound covers are decent enough and the paper quality is good. But, the introduction to every book on this collection is priceless. Penguin went all the way in selecting amazing editors for the book introductions. They were a pleasure to read and they will help you to fully understand and appreciate these Dickens jewels." —Carlitos el Terrible

    Equally gorgeous boxed sets are also available for Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters.

    54. 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 for $122.99.

    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)

    Santa baby, please give me all of these?
