    1. A set of marble whiskey stones that'll thrill your favorite drink enthusiast who does *not* like melted ice spoiling their drink.


    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $8.99 (in a paper gift box; also available in a wooden gift box for $11.99).

    Promising review: "The packaging is great, looks really fancy. As for the product itself, it works as described. Keeps the drink cold without diluting it. You don't have to be a whiskey connoisseur to look like one!" —Rutwick Bhawsar

    2. 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 $6.48 (available in 19 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!

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


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

    Promising review: "For a $10 item, these are a great purchase! They’re light weight and delicate on the ear. When dressed up, they look real and expensive." —Jacqe

    4. A set of eight (four straight, four bent) golden reusable metal straws to look super stylish while being low-key environmentally friendly — and they'll make their bevvy taste colder too!


    Get a set of eight (plus a cleaning brush) from Amazon for $7.97 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "I only have one left. Every time we went out to eat people would ask about them and I would give them one. The brush is truly magical and makes it easy to keep your straws clean. The straws do get cold (due to the material) but I personally like it. The bundle also comes with a pouch making these easy to carry. Ordering the rose gold ones next." —Thrifting Diaries

    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 (available in three colors).

    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 pair of Australian sheepskin insoles to transform any pair of shoes (wellies, slippers, boots, sneaks, etc.) into Ugg-like heaven.


    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.99 (available in sizes 4–13).

    Promising review: "Wonderful! Warm, cozy, comfortable — everything I could want. Many of the insoles I have bought in the past had a layer of fleece stuck to a piece of plastic, which felt fine for a little while but soon the fleece wore away and I was walking on the plastic which was very uncomfortable. These are the real deal — a piece of lamb hide with leather on the bottom and fleece on top. The fleece is so thick I can't imagine it will ever wear down to the bottom but if it does, I will be walking on soft leather, which isn't bad. I will be buying again." —Linda Williams

    8. A five-in-one wine stopper that'll also aerate (so their three-buck ~opens up~ to let the nuances and flavors shine), filter out cork particles, pour neatly, and re-cork the bottle.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.56 (also available in several multi-packs).

    Promising review: "Don't know what the 'flavor' category means with respect to these wine bottle stoppers but the stoppers work as advertised. A local vineyard was using them in their sample room so I assumed that since a vineyard was using them, they would work as advertised and they do. You can lay a wine bottle flat and it won't leak. Nice that it filters out cork crumbs." —Lawrol

    9. And a wine-tasting notebook that'll educate any burgeoning sommelier and encourage them to reflect and take notes on their favorite blends.


    It has three sections: a notes section with guided points and ratings to make it easy for beginners or experts, a wine-tasting vocabulary with quick explanations of flavors and common wine faults, and a walk-through of how to take a tasting note in just a few short minutes.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.34.

    Promising review: "We were encouraged to buy this book for a wine appreciation course, and I have to say that it is the book we used the most out of everything. If you want to be incredibly detailed in your wine tasting notes, then this has all the appropriate prompts you could want to include. And if you want to keep it simple, you can skip a lot of it and just record your overall impressions and a star rating at the bottom of each page. This book holds enough to record around 100 wines, each getting their own page. The pages are a tiny bit on the thin side, but I love how sleek the book is, and also that it includes some wine tasting terms to help you if you're just getting started. We loved it so much, we're buying a few as gifts for the wine lovers in our family!" —brinnet

    10. 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).

    11. 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: "!his thing is fantastic! i've recently gotten into shape shifting puzzles and this a great place to start from the regular 3x3. This is easily my smoothest turning puzzle. I have done probably 20 solves so far and have had no hangups or issues whatsoever. Stickers seem to be good, one is ever so slightly of center but it doesn't look like any will come off any time soon. Also it just looks awesome in both its solved state and scrambled." —john m.

    12. A Beginner's Guide to Lettering and Modern Calligraphy for anyone looking to upgrade their handwriting for personal cards and thank you notes — or even just a doctor's form. My childish chicken scratch is in desperate need of this, tbh.


    It's filled with tips, tricks, five different alphabet styles, and practice pages — plus handwriting projects at the end.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Promising review: "I chose this book because it says 'A Beginner's Guide,' and it is perfectly that! I do love all things font related and I've always wanted to try hand lettering. I wanted a basic foundation with lots of visuals, built-in structure, and repetition in order to get the feel for how letters are created. It is just what I was looking for. It is a well designed workbook with a beautiful feel and cover. It shows the basics of five different alphabets, plain and fun ones, to get you started and on your way to developing your own style. The last section includes ways to bring creativity and composition into your work. It doesn't promise you will become a hand lettering expert overnight, but it is sure to motivate you! I sometimes use tracing paper over the pages for even more practice space! I absolutely recommend this book to beginners. It will be a great addition to your collection. The price is right too! I'm very happy with this purchase!" —Chambers62

    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 12 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 $6.99 (available in five colors).

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


    Get a set of five from Amazon for $9.24.

    Promising review: "After seeing these type of makeup brushes plastered all over Instagram, I decided to try them out. They were cheap enough so I figured if I didn't like 'em, no harm really done. Well, I LOVE them. I haven't used my other makeup brushes or my sponge since. The two larger ones I use for liquid foundation and under-eye concealer. The largest one is also fantastic to smooth out & blend your makeup look. The three smaller ones I use to contour and highlight. These work with both powder and liquid. I also feel like these are more sanitary than the beauty blender I was using every day (though I cleaned it often). I can't believe I waited this long to try them!" —Liz

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

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (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

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


    Get the set of six pairs from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A ring dish emblazoned with their zodiac sign, because you know they have only the prettiest jewelry, and that jewelry deserves an equally pretty home.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $8 each (available in all 12 zodiac signs).

    19. A faux marble container filled with golden paper clips perfect for your work spouse who basically *lives* at their desk — but wishes it felt more like a corner office.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.91.

    Promising review: "I like this because it adds a little something to my desk. The magnetic part works well and makes it easy to get a paperclip. I like the gold paperclips too. Very cute and not so boring. It's nice to see decorative, functional things on your desk, rather than basic office hardware. The marble is smaller than I thought, but who really wants a huge paper clip holder?" —Lovetoshop

    20. Color-changing LED night-lights that'll transform their room, bathroom, or hallway into a fairy's paradise. Santa just became a real ~fungi~, am I right?!


    Get it from Amazon for $4.98.

    Promising review: "I would honestly 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.

    22. A pretty floral 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 $8.49.

    Promising review: "I just received my calendar in the mail and love it! It is the perfect planner. Big enough for me to write all of my appointments down with added notes. The colors on the covers are vibrant. I really like the monthly calendars and daily breakdown as well. I haven’t started using this so I don’t know how sturdy it is but from the looks I think it will last a while. I’m thinking about ordering another one as a Christmas gift!" —Karlie

    23. 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 $5.54+ 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

    24. A (squeak-free) jade roller and gua sha set that'll be like giving the gift of an at-home facial treatment, but for way less $$$.


    It can help their skin absorb products better and increase circulation. And it just *feels* really great, too.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in a bigger size for $8.49).

    Promising review: "Finally caved and had to see what the jade craze was about. I started using this before bed during my nightly cleansing routine. It is quiet and the coolness of the stone feels great on your skin. Love that are is two different sizes on each end making it great for small areas like under your eyes and big areas like the rest of your face..or a nice body massage! I've been struggling with tired dark eyes and so far after a week the puffiness has dramatically decreased. This roller would make a really great gift as well." —Amazon Customer

    25. A handheld electric milk frother so they don't *have* to leave home to enjoy a fabulous latte or cappuccino. It even works to create cold foam!

    It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning!

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

    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

    26. A glittery E.l.f. liquid eyeshadow to put a ~lid~ on the perfect party look — with just a few dabs of their finger.


    They're quick-drying too, so they won't crease up or fall out!

    Get them from E.l.f. for $5 each (available in eight colors).

    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 for $13.99).

    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 you're 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).

    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 $7.99.

    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 $7.96.

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my secret santa, who is an English teacher. She loved it! Such a unique idea, with fun recipes and came with a small shot glass." —Heather

    32. 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 $5.94+ (also available in gold).

    Promising review: "I worried this product may look cheap when it arrived but NOT AT ALL! :) The cards are sturdy, the faces are very clear on every card and the 'points' (suits) have a satin/spiral effect to them. I especially appreciated the face-cards. The imprint is VERY clear and high quality. They were immediately 'shuffle-able' and bended easily but were still sturdy. I also chose this deck because the back of the cards is beautiful and universal in its design." —Cynthia

    33. 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

    34. A face wash foamer to fluff up whatever cleanser they use, so they 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.

    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

    35. A macrame hanging planter so they can show off their favorite bb greenery (real or judgment here) in interior designer–level style.


    Even better if you give it with a plant already inside!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    Promising review: "I love these hangers! 40+ years ago I could do macrame, but have forgotten all but basic knot, so was very happy to find these. They are similar to what I used to make way back when! These hangers are very well made, the cord is about the weight of cotton clothesline (but smoother and more tightly woven) and should hold a pot of substantial weight. I wasn't expecting them to have beads, but they are so pretty with decal or painted flowers on them. Also, they arrived quickly, on the day expected." —BeBop

    36. Vintage-inspired cat eye sunnies for a no-photos-please level of cool. But....they'll actually take a lot of great selfies in them.,

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 10 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

    37. 18K gold-plated snake earrings so they can ~slither~ into any holiday party in sssssstyle.


    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

    38. 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.

    39. A delicate criss-cross ring plated with 14K gold and encrusted with cubic zirconia that'll totally look like the real deal. ::cue double take::


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in ring sizes 5–9 and in rhodium, rose gold, and yellow gold plating).

    Promising review: "I loved this ring so much when I bought my first one that I bought a second one. I am going to see if they will stack on top of one another and if not I will wear them both on different fingers at the same time. Very dainty and elegant, not cheap costume jewelry look to it. I got lots of compliments on the first one when I wear it. Great price and I am hoping none of the stones fall out and that I will have it for a long time. If you are looking at it and thinking about it... do it, get it. Very pretty, simple, elegant ring." —Terra

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