1. An Instax instant camera for printed photographs they can share with friends, use to decorate, or Instagram for a little ~photograph inception~ — all in a *snap*.

The light green camera and the rectangular photo it prints out

It has a selfie mirror to bring the instant camera to 2020, and a macro lens adapter so they always get the perfect close-up.

Get it from Amazon for $61.48+ (available in seven colors, plus three starter packs with film).

Promising review: "I'd been toying with the idea of getting an instant camera for a really long time and finally decided to make it a gift to myself. I did not make a mistake! I ADORE this camera and so does everyone else around me. It's the envy of the town, lol. People are always asking me to take pics. The quality is SUPURB. Extremely artistic, clear images come from this tiny thing. I'm thoroughly impressed and happy all around. It's really easy to use, the directions are straightforward, and the best part about it is that it shows you what setting it needs to be on based on the sensors for light (i.e. in a house, in sunshine, in shade, and so on). I have no complaints!" —Jess

There are tons and tons of cool film types you can buy too — black and white, sepia, with cool borders, etc. Check out the full selection on Amazon to take your ~pic~!

Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

Promising review: "These are legit Mario sprays. I love these, my favorite is the lavender. I actually bought this three-piece set for Christmas, I gave one spray to each of my sisters. This is great for if you want to try out all of the sprays. You can use on your bare skin or you can use as a setting spray. I also have sprayed my beauty blender with them for dampness.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

Promising review: "After months and months of debate. I finally decided to drop cable and go 100% streaming. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner. This device provides you with many apps and ways to watch a lot of TV, movies, news, sports, and local programming. I haven't fully dug into all the apps. But so far I'm highly satisfied. The set up was easy and I can always find something to watch. I can't believe I was paying Comcast up to $200 monthly for the same shows. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️" —Greg

5. The newest version (it has a built-in light now!!) of the original basic Kindle so they can *instantly download* their next read. No walking to the bookstore or waiting two days for a paperback to arrive with Prime shipping.

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

PSST! Right now, for the same price, you get three months of Kindle Unlimited included!

Promising review: "I chose this Kindle based on the features I was looking for. So far so good. I like that you can adjust the font, size, and backlight brightness. My other kindle did not have a backlight so I could only read it while sitting under a bright lamp. This one I can read anywhere — even at the beach. And so easy to download books from my public library. I highly recommend." —Golfer2002

As a personal note, I love my Kindle SO MUCH. I get books immediately downloaded from the library, and I bring it with me *everywhere* I go. I'm literally reading 10 times as many books a year as I was pre-Kindle.

6. A pulled pork and chicken taster pack that'll show up at their door already cooked, seasoned, and sauced with a Memphis-style BBQ sauce so they can enjoy that sloooow cooked flavor — in just a few minutes. Bring on the BBQ pork nachos.

Get a two-pack from Amazon (one for the left eye, one for the right) for $12.99 (available in three sizes).

Promising review: "I loved the product. I usually take 15 mins to do my eyeliner perfectly for my dance recitals which include cleaning and re-doing multiple times. But with this eyeliner, I took only five mins to do it in a single go. It lasted really long even in burning hot weather. It looked so beautiful even from a long distance. I loved the product. It's a must-have for all those who love eye makeup." —rasu

Hand holding one of he controllers and showing the console and accessories

It comes with two wired controllers, power cable and USB adapter, and an HDMI cable.

Get it from Amazon for $49.97.

Promising review: "If you are a kid of the 80/90s or just a game freak in general this console it for you, super easy to set up loaded with 42 games most of the old school favorites, setup easy menu easy, a 5 year old can work this, two controllers, small console, like the size of a cd case but thicker, I don't know what more I can say no matter if you get it on sale or full price completely worth it" —Chrissy

9. A Foreo Luna Mini 2, a silicone face-cleansing brush designed to totally remove their makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know, it's a gamechanger). It's like a quick little baby facial every day.

BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. Check out my in-depth review for all the deets!

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

Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it" —hine0108

10. Two pairs of self-tying shoelaces for your runner friend who likes to head out the door for a quick jog *truly* quickly — they can just slip them through the loops of any lace-up shoe and slip 'em on their feet.

A pair of sneakers with the black shoelaces — which have a tightening toggle rather than a tie

Reviewers note they're also great for people with limited mobility AND for putting sneakers on quickly during triathlons — every second counts!

Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven colors; one size fits all).

Promising review: "Love my Lock Laces. I have tried other brands, but lock laces are the true original and you can tell in the quality and performance. I like to replace all my traditional laces with lock laces, makes just tossing on some shoes to run out to the mailbox or take a quick trip so much easier. And, no more laces coming loose all the time!" —Joshua Bolio

11. An Instant Pot so they can whip up press-the-button-and-watch-the-magic-happen dishes and meals — in much less time than a slow cooker!

A reviewer's photo of the Instant pot

It'll (deep breath) pressure cook, slow-cook, make rice, sauté, make yogurt, steam food...and also keep their dinner warm.

Get a six-quart Instant Pot from Amazon for $79+ (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

Promising review: "This is one of those rare products that actually lives up to the hype and the positive comments. I just finished cooking my first meal with this Instant Pot, a pot roast. I historically would make that in a Crock--Pot but this is much faster (about 1 hour total vs 8 hours). It's also convenient that you can sear the meat first in the instant pot using the sautée setting without needing to use a separate frying pan. Great product." —Rob Rob

Still wondering if this is right for you? Check out I Tried The Instant Pot That Everyone's Obsessed With for an in-depth look.

12. A Hulu gift card so they can subscribe or upgrade their existing account to the ~commercial-free~ version. No one wants to wait for a break to continue their Love Island binge!

13. A Squatty Potty for anyone who can't just SIT AROUND all day on the toilet, waiting to poop and reading the back of their shampoo bottle. They'll now have 20 minutes back in their day.

The white Squatty Potty u-shaped stool in front of a toilet

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 $24.99.

Promising review: "I love Squatty Potty and you will too. It works like a charm. You will wonder how you got along without it all these years. Think 'Laundry Chute!' That's the best way I can explain it. You will have more time on your hands now, that you own a Squatty Potty. You go into the bathroom and you are out in seconds, not 10; 15; or 20 minutes as in the past. Business owners should buy these for their bathrooms, as their employees will take less time on bathroom breaks, really! In fact if the government would invest in these for every bathroom, the legislative process would even speed up. You will be glad you got one!" —campromise

If you want a ~prettier~ one for your bathroom, Squatty Potty also makes a teak wood version ($56.45) and a ~ghost~ clear acrylic one ($79.99).

14. A pet hair–removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips) to rid their lovely black sofa of all their furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so they can get back to cuddling together.

This is a surprisingly thoughtful gift for any friend who loves practical presents — and who has tried every OTHER method of banishing pet hair from their life.

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

Promising review: "We live in a household that contains two humans, two dogs, and two cats. It's a real Noah's Ark furnished with a black sectional couch. Our dogs absolutely hate the vacuum. So much so they will attack the cleaner head with their vicious bite even before we power it on. This makes the task of cleaning our couch extremely unpleasant and nearly impossible. Thanks to Chom Chom, we no longer have this problem! With a simple, quick, SOUNDLESS sweep, we're able to keep our couch pet-hair-free in blissful peace. This tool does an amazing job picking up pet hair but not so much with crumbs. We were so impressed, we gifted these as Christmas presents for all of our pet-loving friends." —Magpie

15. A microwave rice steamer to make burnt stovetop rice (or waiting like...40 minutes for your rice cooker to finish) a thing of the past. They can just add grain, water, and pop in the micro. It's a great gift for college students, too!

The red rice cooker filled with rice, with a paddle scooping some of it out

Unlike traditional plug-in rice cookers, they can throw this whole thing in the wash, so there's no potential for mold or other grossness.

Promising review: "I've had this for seven months now, and I think it's still my favorite tool in my entire kitchen. I eat a ton of rice, and I love how easy this is to use and how easy it is to clean. I put in one cup of white rice and two cups of water, and microwave it for 15 minutes. It comes out consistent every time. In the past, I've cooked rice on the stove and used an electronic rice cooker, and I prefer this microwave one to both. I hated how messy cooking on the stove is, and my electric cooker got mold down inside the part that you can't wash. With this, there's no mess, and there's nowhere you can't clean or that can trap mold or bacteria. I can throw every part of it into the dishwasher after I'm done with it. It's awesome! I wish I'd had this back in college." —C. Stone

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

16. A pair of bag-carrying handles if they're the type who REFUSES to make multiple trips to carry all the groceries into the house. They want to carry ALL the bags at once (without hurting their hands)? These'll do the trick.

Two people carrying several bags in each hand hung on the blue handles

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.95.

Promising review: "My sole complaint about this is that it didn’t exist twenty years ago, because it could have saved me so much aggravation over the years!I am 100% one of those people who would rather dislocate both my arms and have them fall off halfway between my car and front door than make two trips with grocery or shopping bags. Many times I have had thin plastic bag handles sawing through my hands. This could solve one of the most perplexing mysteries of California, too: why there are shopping carts literally everywhere in grocery parking lots EXCEPT the cart returns. People, buy one of these and you can carry all your bags to your car! Also, the trick of twisting them all closed inside your vehicle and not slinging your groceries from side to side when you drive home... brilliant. Buy this amazing hunk of plastic without delay!" —E. Rose

17. A rapid car charger with a whopping FIVE USB ports and a FIVE-FOOT cable to power up the whole family's devices on the go. No more waiting in line for the communal charger.

The charger, as seen from the top and bottom in three different colors: white and pink, blue and black, and white and orange

The USB ports are ~intelligent~, meaning they can detect which device you're plugging in, and charging it as fast as the device will allow.

Get it from Amazon for $20.10+ (available in eight colors)

Promising review: "This is one of the best things I think I have ever bought. I got this for a family vacation where there is always a fight over who gets to charge their phone. This gave everyone the chance to use it and having the part that reaches to the backseat was PRICELESS!!! My son could charge and play at the same time, which was lovely. I highly recommend this to parents with more than one child!!" —Leigh-Anne L.

18. A mini steamer so any burgeoning adult can make short work of wrinkles in the morning. How short? It heats up in 90 SECONDS and releases creases and set wrinkles even faster.


I have this steamer and love it, too! Learn more in my full review: I’m Not Joking, This Mini Clothing Steamer Will Help You Be A Better Adult.

Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (also available in black).

Promising review: "My husband hopped on and bought this when the on in his hand literally fell apart and scalded him. He quickly picked this one, and when it arrived the next business day, UPON FIRST GLANCE, I was disappointed because it was smaller than I'd wanted. (Steamer size queen here!) BUT, I looked at the water tank, saw it was surprisingly big, MUCH bigger than our previous hand steamer's tank. I just used it, and this little guy WORKS! I had no spitting, because of it's upright design. I steam with my clothing item hanging in front of me. I havent tried to steam with my item laying down, which is my husbands way, hahaha, but I am so glad he picked this one out of the lineup. I work in fashion and film and this little guy in definitely going with me. I'm going to buy a second so that it can just sit in my travel bag (its this small and space saving!)." —KC

19. A Muller veggie chopper to turn their onion-cutting tears into tears of joy when they realize the whole dang thing is diced with one press of the lever. The need for fresh salsa can't wait.

The chopper with contaienr and the four blades

It comes with the chopper itself, four super-sharp dicing discs (one for 6.8mm dices and one for 12.6mm dices, one cross blade for large chunks, a rectangular blade for longer pieces/slices), and a cleaning brush.

Get it from Amazon for $20.97.

Promising review: "I am the slowest at chopping/cutting! Because of that I've always been hesitant about preparing foods that required a lot of prep unless I had plenty of time (hard to have with 3 kids). I've bought several things through the years always said to be the latest, greatest chopper only to be disappointed. I was hesitant to buy this one, but after reading reviews, I decided to buy it. I LOVE IT!!! In fact, I just gave my daughter one for Christmas after using mine just one time! I definitely will be preparing healthier meals since meal prep is not the chore it once was. I also love that you can just pop it in the dishwasher. I will admit, after some reviews that had pictures and stories of severe cuts, I was a little unsure if I wanted to buy something that could possibly injure me, but the fact is that the blades are extremely sharp so that they cut easily, which is what you want. You have to use caution and common sense with this chopper and if you do, I'm sure you will love it also." —Joy

20. A pair of cactus-shaped dryer balls whose prickles will ensure their laundry dries quicker and gets softer than ever. Those towels that take FOR-E-VER (The Sandlot voice) to dry? No more. These would made *such* a cute stocking stuffer!

The cactus-shaped balls on a pile of towels

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.50.

Promising review: "I don't know what kind of sorcery this is, but these things work. It used to take three cycles to dry my comforter and bed sheets. I'm one of those set-it-and-forget-it people, so I'd always forget to turn the dryer back on for round two and three, which meant that at midnight, I'd remember the sheets and comforter were still in the dryer, undoubtedly damp because I didn't run them through the dryer another two times. So I finally bought these puppies and as usual, I dried the comforter and bed sheets once, and forgot to check on them. That night, my husband asked where our sheets were since they weren't on the bed at bed time. Then he groaned, and asked if I remembered to really dry them. So I checked the dryer and lo and behold, they were dry! I have actually remembered to check the dryer once after drying the bed sheets and they were dry as soon as the first cycle was over. So, it's a miracle. These things work. Tl;dr: I'm bad at laundry; these make me good." —Gabby

21. A quick-drying top coat so they can finally stop saying "oh sheet!" when they see the indents pressed into their fresh manicure after waking up in the morning. This baby'll have their polish fully set looooong before they go to bed (like, in a few minutes after applying, max!).

The bottle of top coat

Get a pack of two (one for them, one for you) from Amazon for $9.47.

Promising review: "Have been a nail tech for 20+ years and this is a superior product. I must have for anyone that polishes nails. It cuts the dry time in half and I don't use any special drying fans/lights. Will never use any other top coats. I originally purchased this product at a local beauty supply store and paid $10.00 + tax per bottle. I can get two bottles on Amazon for less. Take my word once you have tried this top coat you will never use anything else." —Athena Starr

22. A Revlon one-step drying brush with a unique oval-shaped barrel so they can get an effortless blowout, smooth hair, and majorly boosted volume at the roots — in THREE MINUTES like the reviewer pictured here.

A reviewer with wet, and then blown-out voluminous and straight bob-length hair, with a time stamp to show that it only took 3 minutes and 36 seconds

That' the thing about the oval-shaped brush — it'll let 'em get close to the roots for volume ~at the source~.

Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

Promising review: "Gotta love Amazon Prime!! I just received this and OMG I'm in LOVE!! I'm known for air drying my hair because its super fine but VERY thick and takes forever to dry. Forget how long it takes to style it; I have wavy hair in the back and it falls straight in the front so I have to fight with a round brush, blow dryer and most days a straight iron too! Air drying in the winter doesn't always work- especially on days like today when it feels like -15!! Well I've seen reviews for this bad boy and decided to give it a try. In 3 minutes and 36 seconds I went from towel dried hair to styled!! All I used was a little argan oil on my ends and bam! I am dried, styled and ready for my day!" —Holly D.

23. A microwave omelet maker to upgrade their morning routine. ~Omelet you finish~, but this might be the easiest way to make a healthy breakfast of all time. OF ALL TIME.

An omelet on a plate next to the red silicone mold

Mix up the eggs, add ingredients, cook in the microwave. That's it!

Get it from Amazon for $15.76.

Promising review: "I love this thing! I've had it for about a month now and I use it almost everyday. I love western omelettes, but I hated cooking them. Now I just throw my cheese, onion, green peppers, and ham in here with the eggs and in a couple of minutes, I'm eating. I do have to cook it a little longer than it says, but I do throw everything in it but the kitchen sink. Wish I had found this a long time ago." —RayRay

24. An ~instant download~ print they can hang right above your bar cart for a gorgeous addition to your home that they (or you!) can print with ease and hang in minutes.

A pink, red, and blue print of a gin bottle being used as a vase with flowers

Get it from Emma Make Studio on Etsy for $14.33.

Emma Make Studio is an Etsy shop owned by Mozambican and English designer Emma Hall. It's based in Lisbon, Portugal, and many of the prints you can purchase as instant downloads — or you can order physical prints.

25. An electric wine opener that'll open a bottle in seconds while they just stand there and watch, seriously reducing the amount of time they have to wait before having a glass of wine.

A graphic showing the foil-removing cap, and how the cork is removed

Push a button and the job is D O N E (in seven seconds!). It'll open 80 bottles on a single charge.

Get it from Amazon for $21.995.

Promising review: "This is one of the coolest gadgets that I own now. I never knew that opening a corked bottle of wine could be so easy and so entertaining as well. No more old fashioned corkscrews for me! With the press of a button and about seven seconds this awesome automated device pulls the cork right out of the wine bottle. Not to mention, it has a very cool blue light that illuminated the cork as it’s being removed from the bottle. This may be the best $20 I’ve ever spent. Surprisingly this is made very well and the fact that it’s rechargeable really blows my mind. I used to own a similar device that took regular batteries, but I always seemed to be replacing them. With this, you don’t need to buy anything else other than more bottle of wine! If you’re contemplating purchasing one of these and you’ve read my review up until this point, stop reading now and go make the purchase. You won’t be sorry! Cheers!" —SocDiesel

26. Two-Minute Mornings, a journal with just a few key questions they can fill out quickly (even before coffee) so they can get that immediate *I just got something done* feeling — in just 120 seconds.

Hands holding the book

The prompts encourage you to feel gratitude, let go of stressful thoughts, and set your intentions for the day.

Get it from Amazon for $14.49 or from Bookshop for $15.59 (to support local bookstores).

27. Instyler's Glossier straightening brush, a tourmaline ceramic tool to smooth and sleek-ify even the curliest hair in no time flat — without *making* it flat.

Me, with half curly hair, and a chunk of straight hair after using the brush with text "after literally one pass over my hair"

Get it from Amazon for $56.82.

Promising review: "This brush really does the job and is a better alternative for flat irons( for me personally). It took me just 20 minutes to straighten my hair instead of one hour with a traditional straightener. Love the result!" —Amazon Customer

I happen to L O V E this tool myself for straightening already-dry hair. Check out my full review here (#2)!

28. And a Remington tapered curling wand that'll heat up in 30 SECONDS and create gorgeous waves so they can head out the door in no time. Now they can ~wave~ hello to all their new sleeping-in time.

Reviewer before and after of straight hair and curled hair

Get it from Amazon for $19.90 (available in two sizes).

Promising review: "I never ever ever ever ever do my hair. Literally. I decided to buy a curling wand after looking at all of the great reviews it had. I looked at CHI and other expensive brands too, but they had nowhere near the reviews this wand did. When I saw the amazing reviews that people had left I knew I should give it a shot. HOLY CRAP GUYS this wand is amazing! I would have paid $150 for this thing! I do my hair literally all the time now, and it takes me 15 minutes at the most, and is way prettier than straightening it. Plus, you can use a wand several different ways to give you a different look. So I can go from southern belle curls to sexy voluminous curls in no time. I'm seriously considering buying another just in case I love this one or it breaks. And about burning yourself, this is my first wand and I still haven't burnt myself, and I don't use the glove either, so don't be nervous, just pay attention!" —Shelby B.

29. A Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso maker to 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!!


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 $149+ (available in five colors, plus in bundle options with the Aeroccino 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.

If you're looking to save on more counter space, I have the Vertuo Plus, which I use all the time and love — you can get it for $112.46.

30. A set of toaster-friendly bags perfect for whipping up an ooey gooey grilled cheese when you can't really manage the whole stove thing. Plus they're dishwasher safe, so you don't need to do any washing up by hand!

A grilled cheese sandwich, and a toaster with another grilled cheese in the bag

Get a set of three from Amazon for $17.29.

Promising review: "I'm not going to lie — I'm a total sucker for gimmicky, single purpose kitchen appliances. That being said, these Toastabags are FANTASTIC. Out of all the products I just mentioned, these Toastabags have consistently gotten the most use. I love the ease of just taking two pieces of bread and some cheese and throwing them in the toaster. It's a life saver if you just don't have time to make food, the whole process takes maybe 2-3 minutes. My only tip is to make sure you thoroughly clean out the bags after every single use. 5/5 purchase — will happily repurchase when these have been used up. However, they are so durable (with proper care) that I can't see that happening for a while, I foresee getting a lot more mileage out of these things. I'd probably pay $10 just for one of these; the fact that it came as a 3-pack makes this a steal." —Hamish

31. A gift subscription to Amazon Prime so they can get tons of packages in two days (or even less), plus instant access to thousands of movies and TV shows on Prime Video, millions of songs on Prime Music, free books on Kindle devices or the Kindle app, unlimited photo storage — and more.

32. An INCREDIBLY speedy cold brew maker that can have their favorite beverage ready in as little as FIVE! MINUTES! What is this wizardry?

The five minute rapid cold brew maker, that makes up to 50 ounces of coffee, with a pitcher, coffee maker with dial

It makes up to 16 servings in one brew; just choose your preferred brew setting: 5 min for light, 10 min for medium, and 15 min for dark, which are WAY shorter than the usual overnight brewing methods. Then store the leftovers in the fridge and enjoy iced coffee all week long.

Promising review: "I love cold brew. I hate brewing cold brew. Most cold brews that I make at home take at least 24 hours to steep and that means I have to remember to get it going in advance of needing it. They take up precious room in my fridge and really just led to me buying tons of Stok each week at the grocery. Then I found this machine... OH MY GOODNESS it's a life changer. It takes about 20 minutes from start to finish and I've got my Stok bottle refilled and stored in the fridge with fresh (Starbucks) cold brewed coffee. I love that I can just set it and forget it and come back it's done. It's as easy to clean as any drop coffee maker, it's not too noisy (it's not quiet) and you can even store the carafe in the fridge directly after brewing. If you like cold brew or iced coffee, do not wait to buy this. Order it now! You won't regret it!" —Heather A

33. A ~Fasta Pasta~ cooker to make perfectly al dente pasta right in the microwave — no waiting for the pot to boil. Plus, the lid doubles as a strainer, so they really won't dirty any extra dishes.

The rectangular cooker with spaghetti inside, plus the lid with strainer and two measuring holes for pasta

Another great gifting option for college students!

Promising review: "I bought this microwave pasta cooker at a time when I did not have a stove. Even though I have a stove now, I still use this cooker for dinner for myself sometimes because it works so well and quickly! The pasta comes out very soft and perfectly cooked when instructions are followed. When the pasta is done, the lid is used to drain the cooker of water and works very well. Pasta is the only thing I have cooked in this product, but there are a lot of other things you can cook in it. I highly recommend this to any college student or adult who needs a fast microwave pasta cooker!" —Kelsi Murphy

These'll help appease the little Veruca Salt we all know (even if it's just yourself).
