39 Gifts For The Most Impatient Person You Know

I think we all have someone we're picturing in mind right now....(and if this person is you, you can just buy these for yourself).

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*.

Amazon

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.

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 SUPERB. 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

Promising review: "After hours of searching and comparing ice cream scoops I chose this one. I am VERY HAPPY with this purchase. It was delivered exactly on time and we immediately washed it so we could try it out. Wish we would've bought it sooner and saved the lives of our spoons ; -) We tried it on four different ice creams and it was like scooping whipped cream! This scoop is awesome!! Very heavy duty but not too heavy. It has a nice covering that makes it easy to grip especially since I have small hands. Its dishwasher safe and comes with a lifetime warranty!!! This is the only scoop you'll ever need to buy!" —Jackie R.

And with this gen, you can control your TV and sound bar right from the remote too, and it even has preset buttons to open your favorite apps in one click.

Promising review: "We were a little hesitant about trying this but have a beautiful TV that was just a little to old to be a smart TV. We were connecting our laptop via USB cable and that was a pain with the cable running across the living room. After a friend suggested this we were still in debate...would it work? Could we figure it out? Would it be a pain to use? We are not tech experts so any changes are usually challenging. But it was so easy. We did it in 15 minutes and were already adding to our watchlist. Literally thousands of shows to choose from. Old favorites, new exclusives, and movies galore. Alexa is there to help. So happy with this purchase and much cheaper than buying a new TV. Thank you Amazon for another great product." —Lucy

The pasta maker with homemade tube and spaghetti pasta
Amazon

The parts are dishwasher safe, too!

Promising review: "This pasta maker was recommended by a friend. She told me how easy it was to use and that the pasta came out great. I bought one for my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas to share. They love it. We had fresh lobster stuffed raviolis on Christmas day!!! He had to play with the recipe to get the texture right, but they came out excellent. I decided to buy a second one to give to my son and his wife. Thought we could just share the one, but instead, decided its best to have a second for the growing family. We have told numerous friends about this maker and all were talking about making the purchase." —Lawrence C.

Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (it's currently $40 off for Black Friday).

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

PSST! For the same price, you get three months of Kindle Unlimited included!

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.

amazon.com, Amazon

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.

BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

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

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

Promising review: "Absolutely wonderful! It’s a great little addition to our patio and we decided to use Sterno so we can roast marshmallows! We love the craftsmanship on it and think it is well made! Perfect!!!" —Andrea Lavender

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

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

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

Get two pairs from Amazon for $15.99 (available in seven colors; one size fits all).

An instant pot making mac and cheese
Instant Pot

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

Promising review: "After using the Instant Pot the first time I tossed my pressure cooker and slow cooker. This is one kitchen appliance that saves time and space (very few can do this!). I LOVE the timer feature! Takes all the guesswork out of dinner time! Thank you for a wonderful product! While it does have a learning curve (most slow cookers have a single knob with three settings :) ), you'll be killing it in the kitchen in no time. Clear labels and intuitive design, go ahead and take your kitchen into the next century!" —Judson Hall

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

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. As a human with some...digestion woes, I *love* my Squatty Potty and have already upgraded to the stylish clear one.

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

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

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).

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

17. 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.

youtube.com

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.

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

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

18. 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!

Amazon

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 $30.99.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

19. 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
Amazon

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

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.95.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

20. A quick and easy breakfast sandwich maker so they can enjoy a hot and satisfying brekkie without spend all morning doing it — or shelling out those extra bucks at their local spot. The sandwich will be ready in just FIVE minutes, without having to break out any extra pots and pans (or even a toaster).

Amazon, amazon.com

It'll cook eggs, veggies, meats, and toast up English muffins, biscuits, and even small bagels. It comes with a recipe book with ideas, and you can TOSS THE REMOVABLE PARTS IN THE DISHWASHER! Breakfast is ready in five!

Promising review: "Easily the best purchase I made all year. It does help to let the egg cook for two minutes or so until it’s slightly firm on top so it doesn’t sink into the bread! Comes apart to clean in two seconds flat. I get up at 3:45 a.m. for work and would have laughed at the idea of making a hot breakfast before I got this. It literally takes me five minutes and I’m out the door!" —KB

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four colors).

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

21. A rapid car charger with a whopping FIVE USB ports and a 5-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
Amazon

The USB ports are ~intelligent~, meaning they can detect which device is plugging in, and charge it as fast as the device will allow.

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.

Get it from Amazon for $22.56+ (available in eight colors)

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

22. 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.

BuzzFeed, amazon.com

I have this steamer and love it, too! Learn more in my full review.

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

Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

23. 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.

A veggie chopper filled with onions
Amazon

It comes with the chopper itself, a whopping EIGHT blades (three different size choppers, plus blades for julienning, slicing, grating, and regular and fine shredding), and a cleaning brush.

Promising review: "I have a high sensitivity to raw onions, yet I use them in almost ever meal. Not only do my eyes burn and water to the point of blindness, but I sneeze excessively. I've tried all the tricks, even wearing motorcycle goggles. Nothing helps. This minimizes my onion-cutting time by 90%. It takes me less than a minute to dice rather than 10. It works for all my fruits and veggies, but has saved me from the dreaded onion. I absolutely LOVE this product." —Candace

Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

24. 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
Amazon

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

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.50.

25. Or for an even more practical option, a wad preventer, because balled-up sheets that NEVER seem to actually get dry?? Not on my watch! Who has the time?! This genius invention will keep the corners from getting bunched up to increase their tumble and decrease their dry time.

a model showing a pair of sheets with the wad preventer
Amazon

Just tuck the corners of your flat or fitted sheet into the holes to prevent tangling and twisting aaaand (according to the manufacturer...and backed up by reviewers) improve dry time by 75%!!!!!!!!

Promising review: "I don’t know what kind of magic makes these things work, and I don’t care as long as it keeps my sheets from tangling up in the washer and dryer. This saves me so much time in the laundry room. I have king-size sheets that always end up in a twisted cocoon of wetness in both my front-load washer and my dryer. Before, I always had to stop the dryer and untangle everything, now I just toss them in with no worries. I admit when I first purchased it I expected it wouldn’t work, but was willing to try if there was a slim chance it might. After washing and drying three separate loads of sheets with Wad-Free, I purchased two more sets for my parents. Friends and family are definitely getting this for the holidays come December." —ZombieQT

Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

Shipping info: Ships within 6-10 days.

Wad-Free is a small biz, and their products are made in the USA. 

26. 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
Amazon

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

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

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

Promising review: "I VERY seldom write reviews, but this product deserves recognition! I have very curly/kinky hair and never thought this product would work. Within the first ten seconds of use, I was amazed!! Seriously, my jaw was almost on the floor. It would normally take me THREE hours to blow my hair out- now, it only takes me 30–40 minutes. This product is a phenomenal investment, and the folks who created this are GENIUS!!!" —TCharriez

Promising review: "The best thing I’ve ever bought for my hair and the only thing I’ll use on it!!! 100000000000/10 recommend this. Cuts drying/styling time down to 15 minutes. Leaves my hair shiny without any frizz as if I just straightened it. Make sure you use a heat protectant as always. Buy it!" —Tuesday Henry

Get it from Amazon for $39.89+ (available in five colors).

While some reviewers with curl types 4a–c like the oval brush, if you're looking for something to blow out tighter curls or coils, try the Revlon One-Step *paddle* brush, which is designed with curlier hair in mind! You can get it from Amazon for $39.99. Reviewers *also* say it's the best thing they've ever bought.

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

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

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

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

Promising review: "I HATE doing my hair and have basically 0 talent at it. The fact that I get two days' worth of curls out of this makes it a winner. Ordered the smaller one, which produced a great beachy look. Very quick results — great for an impatient person like me!" —MW

Then store the leftovers in the fridge right in the same carafe and enjoy iced coffee all week long.

Promising review: "LOVE!!! I love cold coffee and hated the time it takes to do it the conventional way. I absolutely LOVE this machine! I have can brew in 20 mins and have it last all week. I don't get the grounds and film settlement in the bottom that I have with other cold brews. EXCELLENT design and loved it so much I bought a second for Christmas." —adrian

These are also great to use in households with gluten intolerance to prevent cross-contamination.

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 lifesaver 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 three-pack makes this a steal." —Hamish

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

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.
