    1. Sparkly throw pillows to inspire their creative side — with reversible two-tone sequins, they can create whatever pattern they want.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.58 (available in 23 colors).

    Promising review: "OK, this was the second mermaid pillowcase I have purchased because I loved the first one so much. This one has my two favorite colors and I absolutely love it. These covers not only look good, they are addictive to hold and play with. Everyone who sees the pillow picks it up and plays with the sequins. The case is well-made and the sequins are on tight." —Kindle Customer

    P.S. If you need a pillow insert to go with it, you can get a top-rated 16x16 one from Amazon for $7.99!

    2. Rhinestone ear jackets for anyone with stars in their eyes. Or, uh, ears.


    Get them from Amazon for $7.98 (available in silver and gold).

    Promising review: "Beautiful earrings! I get a ton of compliments & love how heavy and well made these seem. Great deal!" —Holten

    3. A set of four golden reusable metal straws to look super stylish while being low-key environmentally friendly — and they'll make your bevvy taste colder too!


    Get the set of two bent, two straight straws and a cleaning brush from Amazon for $6.99 (also available in silver).

    4. A canister of Cadbury drinking chocolate ideal for curling up with during a Freeform (RIP ABC Family) Harry Potter weekend.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.35.

    Promising review: "As someone from the US, I was hoping Cadbury drinking chocolate would be half as good as their actual chocolate... very pleasantly surprised that it was more than I had hoped for. I saw some reviews about how the drinking chocolate is less sweet than a 'hot cocoa,' but it's plenty sweet and absolutely delicious! Must-have for any chocolate fan!" —Alexis

    5. Stately engraved cufflinks personalized with their initial that'll say "no, I did NOT wait for the 22nd to buy your present, no siree."


    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in all 26 letters).

    Promising review: "I bought these for my fiance as a gift to him on our wedding day. They pictures on Amazon do not do them justice. They are very nice quality and look fantastic! They are not cheap looking and the engraving is perfect. They truly make a wonderful gift." —AngP

    6. A two-in-one facial cleansing brush with one silicone side for deeper exfoliation and a gentle bristled side for gentle cleansing. It's like giving a facial over and over (and over and over) again — for under $10.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.45.

    Promising review: "This brush is just what I needed! My skin type is mixed dry/oily, sensitive to lotions and soaps, and I’m about 70. Both sides of this brush are very soft but cleanse and lightly massage my face and neck, leaving my face feeling even softer. It is easy to grip, easy to store/pack and well worth the price! Highly recommended!" —LR

    7. A dainty personalized ID bracelet for a thoughtful gift without a whole lot of actual, well, thought.


    Even though these are personalized, they ship out next day, giving you time to get these before the big day!

    Get it from Heart Syndrome on Etsy for $9.90 (available in three colors).

    8. A challenging and cool-looking Rubik's cube-style puzzle that'll look even more art-like before it's completed.


    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "This cube is great. It's very interesting to solve. The cube came stickered perfectly, the stickers are thick and seem sturdy. The cube turns very nicely and it quiet other than some minor spring noise when turning slow against the spring. A great addition to my collection." —Debbi

    9. A velvet scrunchie with an attached bow to really ~tie~ your whole look together, without any more effort than a simple bun or ponytail.

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $8 each.

    10. A geometric 3D frame in an elegant matte brass that'll make an even more special gift when combined with the photo of your choice.


    It can sit on a desk like any other frame or be mounted on the wall for a pop-out effect (mounting equipment included).

    Get a four-inch by four-inch frame from Amazon for $9.99 (other sizes available for over $10).

    Promising review: "I loved how unique this frame was when searching for frames to give as a gift for my mother-in-law. I honestly didn't know what to expect when I got it despite what the pictures documented. I have to say that I was astonished. This frame is very sturdy with a very solid construction and feel. Looking at it, you would never guess that I paid <$15 for it but gosh darn it, it's a great buy. I will definitely be purchasing this again in the future (assuming the price doesn't exorbitantly increase) for other purposes." —Sam

    11. A triangular palette of holographic shimmering highlighters for a truly out-of-this-world glow.


    (Psst: according to reviewers, it's totally a dupe of the Kat von D Alchemist palette)

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89.

    Promising review: "Absolutely a stunning value!!! For the price, these super light and silky highlighters cannot be beat!!! I love the ever-so-soft and subtle shimmer and glow they give my complexion. These are lovely 3D prismatic highlighters that make your complexion glow without being overtly noticed as a highlighter. I loved the presentation in the package. The product itself is finely milled...I believe the ultra micro fine texture of the powder is what allows the subtle prismatic effect!!! I simply was delighted with this product!!!" —Susan H

    12. A three-drawer acrylic jewelry organizer to keep everything arranged neatly WHILE showing off their favorite pieces.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (also available in a two-drawer version).

    Promising review: "Love this makeup storage. I have purchased several and they look great on the bathroom counter and hold what I needed." —Amazon Customer

    13. Beaded tassel statement earrings they'll want to wear with every outfit — whether it's jeans and a tee or a black tie–level LBD.


    Yeah, you might as well buy a pair for yourself while you're at it, too.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 each (available in 21 colors (solid, ombré, and multicolor options).

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I ordered the coral ombré ones and then the black ones, and I get so many compliments. They are truly gorgeous and look much more expensive than what they actually cost!" —Ana

    14. A twisted faux fur scarf for the friend you know who opts for old Hollywood winter glam over a regular old puffer coat.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    15. A set of domed oval makeup brushes with super soft, densely packed synthetic hairs designed to create a flawless and airbrushed final look. Plus, they'll look really cool sitting out on the vanity or bathroom counter.


    Get the set of seven brushes from Amazon for $8.98.

    Promising review: "I am 100% pleased with my purchase! These are great makeup brushes. They don't feel like they will break and the brushes are super soft. They work wonders for blending and it is a good starter size." —Bakusgirl92

    16. A mini marble planter to house the desk succulent your giftee only cares for from the hours from 9 to 5.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $5.

    17. A handheld back roller so you can give (and get) relaxing massages without anyone's hands cramping. Ahhhh-mazing.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.88 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "Okay so you can go get a super nice one for $50+ or just buy this one, save a bunch of money, and get the same result! A friend of mine had one of those nice ones and I HAD to get one, how good it feels and the ease! But when I saw the price I was thinking that I’ll try a cheaper one and I am not disappointed! And my hubby is happy because I’ll give him more massages now because it doesn’t hurt my hands." —Snelso

    18. A collection of impossibly pretty sheer lace socks for anyone trying to increase their *socks appeal*.

    Promising review: "Beautiful especially for the price!! They are a hit everywhere I wear them! You can dress up a simple bun or ponytail with one of these headbands!" —Edna

    20. Color-changing LED night-lights that'll transform your room, bathroom, or hallway into a fairy's paradise.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    Promising review: "I would honeatly give this nightlight 10 stars if i could. For starters it got here a month before the expected arrival date. Next, I was completely unaware that this little thing changed colors! I squealed with delight when I realized it changed colors. And lastly, it has a daylight censor so you don't have to flick it on and off when night comes. I would buy 1000 of these." —landlover

    21. A prosecco-based cookbook guaranteed to get things ~popping~ in the kitchen with recipes for fun cocktails, cakes, dinners, and more.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $9.90.

    23. A cut crystal ring dish, because you know they have only the prettiest jewelry, and that jewelry deserves an equally pretty home.


    Get them from Amazon for $5.79.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love. Tired of always forgetting where I put my wedding ring EVERY Time I wash the dishes. This dish is perfect, looks expensive and you can't beat the price. It looks so fancy and pretty by the sink to hold my rings." —Jennifer Q.

    24. An adorable planner for your busy bee of a bestie who needs to keep her jam-packed schedule in order — but in the cutest way possible, of course.


    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this planner! My favorite parts are the daily to-do sections to list out all I need to do each day. And the calendar pages are large enough to write in my monthly appointments and see them all in one view. Thumbs up for sure." —Lilajs

    25. A super slim phone pocket to stash an ID, credit card, and cash in and head right out the door. No purse needed!


    Get them from Amazon for $7.49+ each (available in six pocket fabrics and colors (including glitter and metallic).

    Promising review: "Absolutely amazing. Love it; it is incredibly useful. I no longer carry a purse thanks to this. Can fit more cards BUT it will last less time. I liked it so much that I bought the iridescent one for my best friend!!" —AJJ

    26. A rolling face massager that'll be like giving the gift of an at-home facial treatment, but for way less $$$.


    The faceted balls move in 360°, increasing circulation in the face and also just feeling really effin' good.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I have using this for the past few weeks and I can honestly say I feel some difference in my face. I have made it a habit to use this roller as part of my nightly routine. I was my face, apply moisturizer, then use this roller for about seven minutes. My face feels softer. Sometimes I also use this for massaging my neck and shoulder area and it helps relieve tension and pain. Very portable and easy to use. I love it!" —J Tayazime

    27. Metallic earbuds with interchangeable silicone tips for a customized fit and top-notch sound for a surprisingly low price.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in black).

    Promising review: "I had been shopping for a new pair of earbuds for quite some time, after breaking my 50th (slight exaggeration) pair of Skull Candies. I wanted an upgrade, but not with a ridiculous price tag. After carefully looking through reviews, I settled on these based upon the amount of positive reviews and the price. I was SHOCKED at how AWESOME these earbuds sound, fit, and feel. I was concerned that they would be too heavy, or would not fit properly, but I have zero complaints on these so far. I haven't challenged their durability yet, only time will tell there, but so far, I highly recommend these. The sound is full, and my bass heavy songs make me shiver, because the bass is so strong. I've honestly never felt that consumed with sound with earbuds, but these do the job perfectly." —Amber Sam

    28. A 36 LED ring light that'll clip right to their smartphone or any other device. And with three different brightness intensities, they can customize their selfie or foodstagram like a profesh photog.


    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    Promising review: "My daughter is obsessed with makeup and of course taking photos of herself. When I saw this selfie light I just had to get it for her. I knew she would absolutely love it. And I was right! She hasn’t stopped using it since she got it. I highly recommend this selfie light if your into taking pictures especially if you do lots of makeup looks! It helps highlight the look so much! The price is definitely worth it!" —Andrea

    29. A trio of gold, pearl, and rhinestone hair pins pretty enough to wear to a wedding, but cheap enough to wear every single day.


    Get a pack of three form Amazon for $7.66 (available in gold and silver; also available in an all-rhinestone version for $7.66).

    Promising review: "They are prettier, better made, and sturdier than I'd anticipated. Neither the pearls nor the gold look cheap or gaudy. They have some flexibility to bend as needed, to both stay in the hair and have the pearls arranged (clustered or not clustered) as you prefer. By having three pins, you can place them separately as desired, or group them together for impact. Great buy. Could not find what I wanted in any local store." —Avida Reader

    30. A contoured sleeping mask that'll never press down on their eyes, so they'll completely forget they're wearing it and be well on the way to the best sleep of their life.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    Promising review: "Perfect! The problem I have with my regular eye masks is that it always touches and puts pressure on my eyelids and eyelashes, especially when I blink. This mask doesn't do any of that! It allows plenty of room for my eyes to breathe, completely blacks out the room, fits snug, and has an adjustable strap! Bye bye dollar store flat sleep masks!" —Veronica

    31. A Tequila Mockingbird cocktail kit including a bartender's jigger to measure out drinks, two swizzle sticks, and an abbreviated version of the original book, featuring 15 drink recipes with notes on the books that inspired them.


    Get it from Amazon for $8.54.

    Promising review: "Fun and entertaining! I do actually use this for mixed drink ideas, but more often it is used as a topic for discussion at parties when people see it sitting on my home bar!" —Sarah Ames

    32. An old fashioned perfume bottle and stopper everyone will think you scored at a pricey antiques store.


    Get it from ModCloth for $9.99 (originally $13).

    33. A pack of silver foil playing cards for at-home poker nights that are more luxurious than the swankiest five-star hotel and casino in Vegas.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    34. An almost-too-sleek stainless steel card wallet that'll fit into the smallest clutch purse or pocket you have. That means more room for the four lipsticks you have to have with you at all times.


    I hope other people have this problem too. PLUS, it's Rfid-blocking to keep your information safe.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "My second purchase. I bought one for myself earlier in the year and it has held up very well. The design is extremely functional and keeps my cards together while keeping my purse more lightweight. My husband loved mine so much that I bought him one for Christmas. I'll be buying a third one for my son soon because he was so impressed when he saw his dad's Christmas gift. Well done." —M. Martin

    35. A flexible marble-printed notebook filled with blank pages for jotting down only the best and brightest ideas and sketches.


    Get it from Amazon for $4.25.

    Promising review: "Greatest notebook of all time. It's got page numbers, ya'll. No lines. And page numbers. It doesn't get more quality than that." —Kaley Rhea

    36. A face wash foamer to fluff up whatever cleanser you use, so you use less product (saving $$ in the long run) and enjoy a more ~luxurious~ experience. Plus, the foamed up wash is less harsh on sensitive skin!


    Get it from Amazon for $6 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —Knock Knock Me

    37. Vintage-inspired cat eye sunnies for a no-photos-please, level of cool.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 11 colors).

    Promising review: "These are perfection. I never, ever write reviews but I had to for these. For one, the price was unbeatable. I was looking for knock-offs of the Le Specs style (which go for over $100) so wasn't expecting much for this price but, wow, do these exceed my expectations. They came in perfect condition, inside a really nice case (!) with a lens cloth to boot (and the outside packaging is adorable, as well). As for how they look — AWESOME. Super of-the-moment. I'll definitely be buying other styles from this company." —Brooklyn Ali

    38. 18K gold-plated snake earrings so you can slither into any holiday party in style.


    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I was afraid they would be too large for my liking, but they're perfect!! (About the size of a big almond). They are a beautiful sparkly, deep emerald green attached to a beautiful sparking zircon which almost looks like a diamond. The snake and everything is finely detailed. They look much, much more expensive than they are. I love them! You cannot go wrong with these — especially for the money." —M. Williams

    39. A set of six antique-looking art prints that'll turn their home into a swanky tropical paradise.


    Get the set of six from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "The quality of these prints is exceptional. The paper is very, very thick (thicker than most prints I've purchased in the past). The colors are really rich, sumptuous and vibrant. In my opinion, the website shots do not do these prints justice. I was taken aback by the overall high quality of these prints (especially given their low price). I've seen this prints elsewhere for far more $. So, congratulations - you've found yourself a sweet deal! If you're thinking about this purchase, you will be very pleased!" —Marsha H.

    40. A dressy plaid cashmere-feel scarf for looking put together while staying bundled up all winter.


    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+.

    Promising review: "I really like this scarf. I have two of them. They are soft (not itchy) and warm. I loved having it on a long airplane trip. I don't think you will be disappointed with this purchase, especially for the price." —L. Sherman

    41. A delicate bow-topped ring plated with 18K gold and encrusted with cubic zirconia that'll totally look like the real deal. ::cue double take::


    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors and ring sizes 5.5–9).

    Promising review: "I love this ring! I was looking for a dainty, cute ring and this is just perfect! It looks like it is really well made and fits perfectly! I'm not sure how well it'll hold up over time, but I've worn it twice for long periods of time and haven't experienced any of that normal weird metal smell you get from cheaply made jewelry. I bought the silver one but I'm probably going to buy the gold one so I have one in each color." —Cynthia Anne Robinson

    Less money spent on other people's presents = more money to buy New Year's champagne for yourself.
