    1. An ingeniously designed baking pan so you can finally stop fighting over the edge pieces of brownies, lasagna, baked ziti, cornbread, mac & cheese, etc.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $35.95.

    Promising review: "I first ran across this pan in a YouTube video Elton Brown had posted about useless kitchen gadgets. While pretty much everything else he demonstrated was in fact useless, he was simply wrong about this pan. The only criticism he could offer was something about how you shouldn't have specialty items in your kitchen. I suppose that's valid if you live in a small apartment, not so much for a normal suburban house. I personally love edge brownies, and intrigued I found the pan here and ordered one. It's cast aluminum, American made, and does exactly what Baker's Edge says it will do. I've had it almost two years now, and I'd buy another in a heartbeat." —B. Sims

    2. A Bob's Burgers cookbook chock-full of punny and delicious recipes, illustrations of your favorite characters in the style of the show's animation, and even tips on cooking better burgers. You'll all love it *almost* as much as Tina loves butts.

    Amazon

    From the Belchers' weird family to yours.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.92.

    Promising review: "This book is so good in so many ways. Let me list them:

    1. It's hilarious. The puns are great. The cover is cute. The pictures are funny. Even the little descriptions throw some how references in there.

    2. The recipes are actually really good. The burgers themselves are delicious.

    3. It has the basics. There are several pages devoted to learning burger basics. It really helped me out on making better burgers.

    4. There are a variety of recipes. It has all sorts of flavor combos and even non-beef burgers (including vegetarian burgers).

    Overall, a definite win. I'm working my way through all the recipes one by one. For now, my favorite has been 'A Good Manchego is Hard to Find'" —Michelle R.

    3. A mini (but bright and powerful) multimedia projector perfect for turning 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. And an Amazon Fire TV stick you can simply pop into your existing TV (or the projector above!) and stream all the shows, movies, and music you 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 $19.99 (originally $39.99 — you can get it 50% off for Black Friday week!).

    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 bottle of Poo-Pourri to squash beefs (and odors) over who gets to use the bathroom first.

    instagram.com

    Just spray *before* you go — the natural blend of essential oils and other ingredients creates a barrier so odors can't escape the bowl. We're not masking odors, we're keeping them from happening *in the first place*.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.66 (available in 20 scents and seven different bottle sizes).

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon scent. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Alison H.

    6. A Nintendo Switch that'll...well... switch between a handheld game and a multi-player console (pick it up and play it solo with the Joy-Con controllers attached, or dock the Switch to play on your TV!).

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    The Joy-Con can be used separately for two-player action, inserted into the Joy-Con grip like a traditional controller, held in each hand for left and right controls, or attached to either side of the Nintendo Switch!

    Get it from Amazon for $275.07+ (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love the Nintendo Switch. The ability to play my games on both the TV and on the go is something I didn't ever really think was possible. The system design cleverly blends a table with conventional gaming controls that several others have tried, and failed, to do before (Nvidia Shiled Tablet comes to mind). It is easy and very satisfying to unclick the controllers from the sides of the tablet portion for use as either individual controllers, or to dock them into the included grip for use as a more conventional controller. Although the controllers are on the smaller side, I have not experienced any discomfort with extended, hours-long play sessions so far. Nintendo does make a pro controller for those who want something different, so your mileage may vary.

    The tablet itself easily slides into the included docking station and within seconds is displaying game information on the TV. The included HDMI cable is a good length so I was able to connect to the TV with no problems. The included power/USB-C cord was likewise a good length so I didn't have to compromise on where I stationed the dock. Battery life has been about as expected for a tablet pushing out such high-quality games, and I have not had issues with running out of power, especially since you can charge via USB-C which I use for my phone as well. I have had a great time playing Switch so far (Zelda being one of the absolute best games I have played in years), and am really looking forward to many of the games on the horizon. I look forward to what Nintendo has to offer, and am thrilled with what I've got so far!" —Ted Gleason

    7. Or a classic Nintendo Entertainment System with an old-school look that's pre-loaded with 30 games, including Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Pac-Man, Final Fantasy, and many more.

    Amazon

    All you need to do is plug it right into your TV and get playing! It only comes with one controller, but you can get extras from Amazon for $9.99 each.

    Get it from Amazon for $98.75

    Promising review: "So in love with this NES Classic. It immediately took me back to my childhood. There are so many games! I didn’t realize how many were loaded. Cord for the controller is also just as short as it used to be. Lol So you may want to order a longer one. Or lay on the floor near the TV like you did in your youth." —Amazon Customer

    8. An Instant Pot for whipping up press-the-button-and-watch-the-magic-happen dishes and meals. The kids can even get in on the cooking, *and* you can get great new ideas for adding (easy) variety to your weekly meal plans.

    amazon.com

    Use it to make low-effort rice, pressure cooked dishes, slow cooked dishes, and so so so so so much more.

    Get a six-quart Instant Pot from Amazon for $54.99+ (also available in three-quart and eight-quart sizes).

    Promising review: "I can't believe that I love this thing. All my friends were getting them and raving about it. But I absolutely hate my slow cooker, and I figured this device would be much the same. I finally decided to get one when my friend posted that she had made amazing carnitas in it. My husband is Mexican and carnitas are his favorite food, so I thought I'd get one to try it out and hope everyone was right. The first thing I made (after the water test) was the carnitas and they KNOCKED OUR SOCKS OFF. Then I made rice and it came out better than my old rice cooker. Tonight I made ribs and the entire family went wild. I've had this Instant Pot for roughly 48 hours and I'm already using it for a fourth time right now to make oatmeal. Get one. You will not be sorry." —Regina Croskey-Corcoran

    9. A silicone popper so you can make up to 14 cups of popcorn in the microwave for the whole group — and everyone can add whatever toppings (light salt, heavy salt, DIY kettlecorn, chocolate drizzles, etc) they're craving.

    Amazon

    It's *also* collapsible so you can store it easily in a drawer.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.87 (available in eight colors).

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am a very skeptical shopper. This is especially true when a product has a fair amount of hype behind it. After reading reviews for this popcorn maker, I decided to give it a shot. I did not realize how much I would use this product until I tried it for the first time. My girlfriend and I have made popcorn several times per week since receiving it. We love it so much because we can experiment with different flavorings, oils, butters, and salts to create popcorn that is 100 times better than anything we have ever bought in a store. I loved it so much, that I actually bought more for my popcorn-loving friends and family!" —Amazon Customer

    10. Finders Seekers, a subscription box scavenger box that'll deliver a fresh puzzle adventure to your door every month.

    CrateJoy

    Each month features a new city to explore as you decipher clues and solve puzzles together. Recommended for ages 10+.

    Subscribe at CrateJoy for $25+ per month.

    Promising review: "I got this for our family to do together. We love it! We love that each month is a different place, and that we learn really interesting things about that place as we're going through the puzzles. The puzzles are varied — in type and difficulty — and I love the little things you get in each package (maps, pictures, and one larger item to help with several of the puzzles). Lots of fun, and the Facebook community is so helpful (with no spoiler!), too. Great for families, and puzzle lovers!" —Jennifer

    11. Burt's Bees pajamas and onesies made of 100% organic cotton in sizes for the whole dang family — including a bandana for your four-legged family (I'm not crying, YOU'RE CRYING!).

    Amazon

    Psst! This was one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2018! And be sure to check out our list of 24 Of Oprah's Favorite Things You Can Probably Afford Even If You Aren't A Billionaire and 27 Of Oprah's Favorite Things You'll Probably Wish She'd Give You for the 2019 list!

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95+ (red striped onesies here and blue and grey PJs here; available in sizes for baby, toddler & kids, big kids, adult men and women, and dog/cat)

    12. An easy-set-up ping pong table you can also convert to a single-player table to practice those sick moves. Looking for something to do all together after the presents are opened? This is a great option.

    Amazon

    How easy is it to set up? it's 95% pre-assembled, you just need to attach the legs.

    Get it from Amazon for $399.99.

    Promising review: "So after researching every table out there for $400 or less, I decided on the Joola Inside, and I'm VERY pleased. First of all, assembly was simple... this is a big deal if you are aware of all the horror story reviews out there regarding assembly of similarly priced tables. It comes almost completely assembled, all you have to do is assemble the wheel brackets. Piece of cake. It very well made, and extremely solid. It's a two-piece table, so none of the mismatch concerns that plague some of the four-piece tables (beware the four-piece tables!). The two halves line up perfectly. Very easy to roll and fold up for storage. Can't imagine why you'd need more unless you absolutely must have a thicker surface (a legitimate concern for advanced players, but not for the average recreational player). Low price, but in no way says 'cheap.' Highly recommended!!!" —D. Nelsen

    13. Or a ping pong set that'll transform any table you already have into your new favorite game.

    Amazon

    It comes with an expandable/retractable net (so it can fit the width of your table) with adjustable clamps, two paddles, two balls, and a mesh carrying bag so you can take it on the go.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (also available in white).

    Promising review: "This thing is great! I bought it as a stocking stuffer for my husband and he loves it. We actually set it up on the dining room table. It's very sturdy and the poles that hold the net are spring loaded so it holds tight no matter what size your table. The clamps that hold the poles up are also spring loaded so there's no damage to the table. It even comes with a travel bag and takes less than a minute to set up and take down. I'd highly recommend it to anyone with limited space or who likes to camp. I would also recommend buying a few more ping pong balls, though. It comes with two but they aren't the best." —Philip or Laura

    14. A couch armrest caddy to corral allllll the remotes for alllll your TV devices, so no one has to yell across the house "WHERE'S THE ROKU REMOTE?!"

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    Promising review: "How did we ever live without this? This remote organizer has revolutionized our lives! Having all the remotes in one place allows my husband and me to exercise total control over our TV viewing realm without ever having to get off of our asses. We put it on the arm of a hulking, ugly, puffy recliner, and it fits well. The length with the weight allows it to be tucked securely into the chair. My only complaint is that all the remote controls seem to breed and multiply within the pockets!" —Book Lover

    15. A subscription to Amazon Prime for a gift that keeps on giving — it'll get the whooole fam access to free two-day shipping on over 100 million items, 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.

    Get a three-month gift subscription from Amazon for $39 or a 12-month subscription for $119.

    16. 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 fighting, kids!

    Amazon

    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 $21.97+ (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.

    17. A ball launcher that'll help everyone (including your four-legged child) want to play fetch outside way more.

    youtube.com

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97 (available in nine models — for different size balls and shorter/greater throwing distance).

    Promising review: "While my dog struggles with the concept of returning the ball to me, she absolutely loves this! We visit a huge dog park frequently, and this lets me throw a ball far enough that she really gets to run full throttle! I could never throw it far enough on my own to keep her interested more than one or two times before getting the launcher. Now, we can spend an hour at the park playing with it. I have one super tired dog when we go home. Tired dog = happy dog = happy dog mom. I also love that I don't have to pick up the slimy ball with my hands anymore, especially after she drops it in a puddle, because the launcher picks it right up. My dog gets so excited when she sees the launcher that she will bounce back and forth in front of me until I throw the ball. I only regret not buying one of these earlier!" —C. Fritzche

    18. A half-gallon cold brew maker, because mornings will go much more smoothly when there's enough delicious iced coffee to go around. Just twist the lid and pour — and be on your way.

    Amazon

    It comes with a removable filter for easy brewing (it works best with a coarser, French press–style grind).

    Get it from Amazon for $31.06 (also available in a smaller one-quart size).

    Promising review: "We use this all the time in my house. A little less than when I initially bought it, as there's less call for cold brew in the winter, but it still gets some use. I generally prefer glass to plastic in my kitchen, but the body of it seems to have held up well despite extensive and extended use. I certainly recommend it if you're looking tired of making cold brew at home with the mason jar method, but still don't want to spill the cash for a fancier-than-necessary alternative." —Matthew Baird

    I have the smaller version of this and I LOVE IT! Check out my full review for all the deets.

    19. Otrio, a strategy-based board game that's like taking tic-tac-toe to the next level (like, next-next level). Players compete to line up three pieces of the same color, one in each size in w row, column, diaconal, or in the same space — while trying to block each other.

    Amazon

    It's designed for 2-4 players, ages 6+. And it's so cool-looking, you can leave it out on a table for spontaneous games.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.24.

    Promising review: "If your family loves game nights, then this is the game for you! Never the same game twice and good for all ages — our five children, ages 8-17 love it! Lots of good laughs and memories made." —S. Ostash

    20. A set of cereal bowls that'll almost be R2D-too delightful to use.

    amazon.com

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "This ia a great R2D2 bowl set. They are made well with thick plastic and a lot of detail. I have run them through the dishwasher on the top shelf and they are just fine. I am very happy with them." —Vicki Johnson

    21. A celestially beautiful outdoor fire pit, because you're thinking ahead to the glorious summer months (mostly for the s'mores).

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $91.99.

    Promising review: "I bought this grill for my boyfriend and I not expecting a lot because of the cheap grill we had before it. It is very nice. It's heavy, sturdy, well made, beautiful and looks really cool when it's dark and you've got a fire going in it. A great buy, definitely put sand in the bottom to protect it and get a cover for it if you want it to last [so water doesn't collect inside and rust out the bottom]." —Tim

    22. A BuzzFeed's Tasty x Wilton candy-making 101 kit if your whole fam has the sweet tooth gene. This kit'll have everyone helping out to make cool rainbow candy bars, molded cupcake decorations. and more.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    Promising review: "A friend lent me his copy of the first movie with the making-of DVDs and I was gobsmacked, so I ordered my own set immediately. The movies are beautifully done and the behind the scenes documentaries alone are worth the purchase price. One by one I am introducing them to other members of my family. I think it is interesting to note that one of my grandsons has developed an interest in art as a result of viewing the behind the scenes documentaries. Frodo Lives!" —Trivia Queen

    24. A frozen dessert maker that'll transform any frozen fruit into a delicious ice cream-like treat in just a few minutes.

    Amazon

    It comes with a recipe book to inspire your sweet tooth. Plus, all the parts are removable, making it super easy to clean.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    Promising review: "Was in the market for a frozen fruit dessert maker, after seeing and tasting some banana frozen dessert made by a friend. After looking around, I came across this one and am really quite pleased. It's quieter and easier to clean than my friend's machine (which I think is probably more well known), and I've used it twice this week already." —Andrew Lim

    25. A beautiful blank genealogy chart so you can trace your family trees for a custom piece of wall art. If you do the legwork and fill it out for the recipient, even better.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (also available in a colorful version).

    Promising review: "Chart is nice quality. I filled it out, put it in a nice frame and hung it in the hallway. It looks great, and is a nice conversation piece. I love seeing my husband's and my lineage at a glance!" —NotTheNany

    26. A 23andMe DNA testing service so you can get the ultimate peek into your family history. Just provide a saliva sample using the kit and send it back for results in 6-8 weeks. Everyone will enjoy learning more about your history!

    27. A puncture-resistant snow tube with a super-slick tarpaulin bottom for speedier-than-ever sled rides down your local hill. Snow days just got a whoooooole lot better.

    Cabela's

    Get it from Cabela's for $99.99.

    28. A mega-pack of 15 Etude House sheet masks, because the family that hydrates their skin together stays together.

    Amazon

    They'll make for some great family photos too. And since each mask has a different main ingredient, people can tailor their pick to their skin concern.

    Get the set of 15 from Amazon for $14.99.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that the masks are thin and breathable. They're perfect everyday sheet masks. And there's a lot of serum leftover in the pouches, which I reuse with a compressed face mask for another sheet mask the next day. The first time I used one when I threw the mask away, I was surprised to notice that the mask hadn't dried out! It was still saturated with serum. So I keep these masks on for 25-30 minutes without the mask drying on my face! I love these masks so far! These masks fit my face perfectly, too. They leave my skin dewy when they're used with the rest of my skincare routine." —Krisitne

    29. A Breville 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 your boat.

    Amazon

    It's compact so it won't take up a ton of counter space, and the nonstick aluminum will ensure all the cheese ends up on your sandwich, NOT burnt on the plates.

    Get it from Amazon for $109.95.

    Promising review: "This is probably the most used kitchen gadget in our house right now. I bought this six months ago and it sat in the box for several months. I even thought 'Why did I buy this? We will never use it.' Boy was I wrong. I took it out of the box one night when I was home alone and made myself a panini from a recipe from a local sandwich shop. My 17-year-old son came in while I was eating it and took a bite. He doesn't cook but immediately asked how to make it. Then one day when he was making one my daughter tried his and she asked him how to make them. It's so easy to use and wipes clean in a cinch. I love how it stores vertically too. My kids use this thing daily now, and I have to stop them from making paninis in order to get them to eat what I cook for supper. Great price too!" —Christine A. Vaal

    30. A recipe book for collecting and preserving all your fam's favorite dishes from all time — Grandma Gladys's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies? Check. Uncle Kevin's signature chili? You bet. Your mom's dry-as-toast pot roast? Maybe we can leave that one out.

It even has measurement equivalents, substitution suggestions, kitchen tips, a glossary of cooking terms, and more printed inside.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I looked for ages for a good blank cookbook. The quality and price are amazing and I LOVE the style: modern but not so trendy that it'll go out of style. This is something I want to fill in and pass along to my kids." —Brittany Cole

    31. A Hogwarts lego kit with 10 Lego figures, a spiral staircase, reversible Mirror of Erised, and four levels so even all the Weasley children could join in on the fun.

    Amazon, Lego

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

    Promising review: "This is a pricey set, but there's a lot of value in it. We got it as a centerpiece birthday present and it was a big hit, as you can imagine. Minifigs, even generic ones, aren't cheap. The ten Potter-specific ones that come with this set add a lot of value. That's before you get to the fact that this works as both an advanced building set and as an interesting play setting. Lots of detail, bits and bobs, (sorting hat), and goofy accessories, (basilisk?), add a great deal to the play value and the overall appeal and value of the set. So, we were happy and G'son was happy. Mission accomplished." —Pop Bop

    32. A Stonewall Kitchen pancake gift set with everything you guys need to have the most epic brunches in the comfort of your own home — meaning none of you have to put real (aka non-PJ) pants on.

    Stonewall Kitchen

    Get it from Amazon for $37.59.

    Promising review: "Great update to game! Love the two boards in one, plus the new cards that make it very competitive! Tons of fun even if you're not a GoT fanatic." —Andrea Slaughter

    And if you're looking for more ASOIAF games, they also make Game of Thrones Risk!

    34. A supremely luxurious faux fur throw that'll... on second thought, maybe you shouldn't get this. Everyone's going to want to steal it for themselves rather than share it on the couch.

    Amazon

    That includes your dog, too.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.48 (available in four sizes and 13 colors).

    Promising review: "SUPER soft throw! This throw is so soft and cozy that my whole family fights over it. The color is beautiful and it looks and feels much more expensive than it is. I have other much pricier throws and this one beats the expensive ones in every category. This throw is softer, warmer, bigger and so much prettier in person. I want one in every color. Based on the way my family is fighting over it I might need one in every color! So far the cat is winning." —Kathy

    35. A trio of snowball makers so you all can get your Buddy the Elf on in no time flat.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.95.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $9.58.

    Promising review: "This book had some games (i.e. Spite and Malice) that I played with my mother/grandmother as a kid, that I could never find anything online regarding the rules to teach to someone else. I honestly thought some of these games listed in here were made up by someone in my family for a VERY long time, because NO ONE else had ever heard of them. Now I can play some old favorites with my wife. Very happy with this product. Grandma, did you author this book?" —Connor

    37. A hot sauce–making kit so you guys can bond while creating a whopping seven different sauces — and seeing which pepper creates your favorite flavor (or flavorite, if you will).

    Amazon

    It comes with seven bottles (three glass and three squeeze-bottles), a two-inch funnel, apple cider vinegar, spice blend, two pairs of gloves, five pH strips, peppers, instruction card, and labels.

    Get it from Amazon for $41.82. This same company also makes kits for creating your own gin, complete with ~botanicals~ — for families of all grown-ups, of course.

    Promising review: "I bought this product as a gift for my s/o, he loves to cook and loves all things spicy. Recently he had ordered ghost peppers and didn’t know what to do with them. So I started researching hot sauce kits and came across this one. We were not disappointed!! The packaging was cute and making the hot sauce was something fun and different to enjoy together. Having this kit it made it so easy!!! All of our friends have heard about our hot sauce–making adventure and want to know where to get a kit for themselves. Everything is included: tiny glass storing bottles, the spices, little squeeze bottles and tiny fill-in labels. He absolutely loved this gift and I can’t believe I got it for the price, considering everything that’s included. 10/10 would recommend" —Sam

    38. A set of the three volumes of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark you loved as a kid and now want to share during a spooky reading hour with the kids before bedtime. Ok, not *too* close to bedtime.

    Urban Outfitters

    And fret not: they've changed the artwork back to the *original* super-scary illustrations after a re-print in 2017!

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $13.97 or Urban Outfitters for $20.97.
