1. A set of four vintage-style botanical prints for anyone who loves the feel of old-timey science classrooms and who also can keep zero real plants alive.

The four prints

2. An ~appearling~ light that'll make anyone clam up with emotion when they open it. The pearl *changes colors*, and you can even pop it out of the shell and carry it with you!

3. A pair of pink coupe glasses with a gold rim so even their $5 bottle of bubbles can taste a little like Veuve Cliquot.

The glasses

4. Wood grain noise-isolating earbuds for anyone who is ALWAYS losing theirs. These look stylish enough that they'll always know where they are, but are actually cheap enough that they can replace them if need be.

The earbuds

*Or* (for a little bit more than your $25 budget) a set of snazzy-looking and surprisingly affordable wireless Bluetooth earbuds so they can jam out to their favorite tunes, nod thoughtfully at their go-to podcast, or simply call into all their Zoom meetings with great sound clarity (and no background noise). These also come with a couple of sizes of buds so you can ensure a secure — and comfortable — fit.

5. A bar of quadruple-milled, shea butter-infused French ~savon~ to soften, rather than dry out, their skin — it's time to send that boring soap down the drain.

The colorful soap bars

6. A pair of ice-rolling globes that'll be like an at-home facial treatment, but for way less $$$. They can keep them in the fridge or freezer *or* even warm them up in hot water!

The two golden globes with black silicone sleeves

7. A pretty celestial journal (hello, gold foil stars) to inspire short and sweet daily reflections. There are only a few lines per day, so use them well!

The journal with a star-like cover print

8. A short and silky robe made for lounging around, getting ready, and listening to some Sinatra.

9. A gorgeous textured travel wallet to store their cash, boarding pass, passport, credit cards, and more — all while looking like a chic mini clutch.

The gloves in colors like yellow, pink, red, brown, and blue

11. An eight-piece measuring set to create a gorge and 'Gram-worthy flat lay during your next baking adventure.

The measuring cups and spoons with baking ingredients

The crystal decanter with rocks glass

13. A pair of oversized square sunnies for anyone you know who *has* to be on trend — without you paying a designer price. These scream "no photos please!" — but also look really great in photos, tbh.

The cover of the book

15. A gold scratch-off map for any travel enthusiast who doesn't just want a boring old *regular* wall map. They can scratch off the coating to reveal a brightly colored underneath to mark off where they've been.

21. A brushed metallic Rubik's cube-style puzzle that'll be a two-in-one gift: challenging game (the cube segments aren't all the same size!) and interestingly attractive desk tchotchke.

22. A just-the-right-size planner with a stately faux leather cover, tabbed sections, gold foiling, and weekly and monthly sections so they at least feel like their life is in order. Mood.

23. A generously sized, loop-through faux fur stole to make the most bundled-up winter outfit look old Hollywood glam.

Reviewer in the navy stole

The green book with feathers on the cover

26. A multipack of minimal yet statement-making earrings to complete any all black everything #OOTD.

The set of gold tone and black earrings in a variety of shapes and sizes

27. A three-pack of lightweight contoured eye masks that'll block light without ever pressing down on their eyelashes, guaranteeing a more restful night's sleep. Sadly does not come with a butler and breakfast in bed.

28. Or a comfy cotton eye mask inspired by Andy Warhol's famous painting of Marilyn Monroe for the person who's a *work of art*, even when they're asleep. Not a fan of Marilyn? There are 30(!) different art-inspired designs to choose from, like The Birth of Venus, Frida Kahlo, and Rembrandt.

The loafer slippers in red, grey, and camel

32. Or a pair of velvety plush slide-on slippers (perfect for year-round use) that'll make walking around their home, doing chores, or fetching a snack feel just a little more luxe. They're suuuuper cushy, but won't overheat their tootsies!

The open toe slippers in black, light pink, grey, and light blue

39. A gold-trimmed box of Earl Grey that'll make them feel like they're having high tea at Buckingham Palace. Pro tip: This makes for an adorable gift wrap if you stick a couple of other tiny gifts inside the tin along with the tea!
