1. Wood grain noise-isolating earbuds for anyone who is ALWAYS losing theirs. These look stylish enough that they'll always know where they are, but are actually cheap enough that they can replace them if need be.

The earbuds

Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in three colors).

Promising review: "I just received the earphones and I must say that I am impressed. The sound quality is exceptional for this price. Noise cancellation is good. I bought these to use as my in-ear monitor for stage but realize they cancel too much outside noise for me. I love listening to music through them - good bass but not too much, all sound ranges come across clear. I have had more than a half dozen ear phones but these are my favorite so far. Comfortable also. Comes with several additional ear piece and cushions for one's liking." —V. Crawford

2. An ~appearling~ light that'll make anyone clam up with emotion when they open it. The pearl *changes colors*, and you can even pop it out of the shell and carry it with you!


Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

Promising review: "Actually wanted a different version from urban outfitters, but didn’t want to pay the huge price (and it had bad reviews) so I looked to see if amazon had a version, and found this for way less! Shape is diff than urban but still cute. It arrived and I love it! The shell can actually be used to hold jewelry too ( if ball ever breaks or gets lost) the ball led colors are pretty!" —Val V

3. A pretty celestial journal (hello, gold foil stars) to inspire short and sweet daily reflections. There are only a few lines per day, so use them well!

The journal with a star-like cover print
Chronicle Books

It's gorgeous AND durable, so they'll actually want to use it for the full five years. The pages also also gilded. FANCY! According to one reviewer, the photos don't do it justice.

Get it from Amazon for $10.25 or from Bookshop for $15.59.

4. A short and silky robe made for lounging around, getting ready, and listening to some Sinatra.


Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S–2X and 32 colors and prints).

Promising review: "This is such a high quality product!! I ordered seven for my bridesmaids and they are smooth and pressed to perfection upon receipt, and I’m so impressed!! I ordered the light pink because they looked like a dusty pink. In person, they’re true to light pink but it seems to have a rose gold type of glimmer to it in the light which I adore 😍 what I love most about this product is that it actually has ties on the inside as well on the outside to stay secure and closed up, because I’ve used a similar cheap robe before that fell apart constantly without those inner ties. LOVE it!!" —Monica

5. A gorgeous textured travel wallet to store your cash, boarding pass, passport, credit cards, and more — all while looking like a chic mini clutch.


It's made of Rfid-blocking material too.

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 37 colors).

Promising review: "I absolutely love this wallet. I needed a new travel wallet, and this holds everything I need all in one place, and it still closes nicely and stays flat! Boarding pass, passport, ID and credit cards, money, checked baggage tickets, receipts, etc! Yet it doesn’t bulk up or look like an overstuffed mess. Just amazing. The description says it only holds US money, but I just used the boarding pass flap to hold all my Japanese Yen (¥), which are larger. I didn’t use the zippered pocket for coins as I much prefer a separate coin purse for that sort of thing. I definitely recommend to anyone who travels a lot!" —Anthony Luu

6. Touchscreen leather gloves so beautiful, whoever opens them will immediately break into a (gloved) round of applause. Aaaand they're lined with a cashmere blend.

The gloves in colors like yellow, pink, red, brown, and blue

Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 18 colors).

Promising review: "Love, love, love these gloves! They work amazing and I have gotten so many compliments on them. They are warm and work awesome with my phone. Both gloves have three fingers that work with touch screen: thumb, index and middle." —rcollins

7. A gold-plated corkscrew for ~birds of a feather~ who both just really love wine.

The gold corkscrew, which when closed is shaped like a bird

Get it from Amazon for $12.25+ (available in three colors). And if ~rainbow iridescence~ is more your thing, score one from Amazon for $15.59!

Promising review: "I am a sucker for anything gold, so this was right up my alley. The corkscrew itself is stunning (and very sturdy) and the packaging was equally as amazing! The box is black and made of a thick cardboard with the corkscrew nestled in black foam and slides into the outer shell packaging. You would think this corkscrew was $40 from Nordstrom, not $10 from Amazon. I will be purchasing it again for future hostess gifts!" —David L.

8. An eight-piece measuring set to create a gorge and 'Gram-worthy flat lay during your next baking adventure.

The measuring cups and spoons with baking ingredients

Get the set of eight from Amazon for $22.99 (also available in copper.

Promising review: "Happy with this measuring set. The cups come on a detachable ring, and the spoons come on their own ring, which make it easy to take them off and on for using and then storing. The color is gorgeous and perfectly matches the gold cooking utensils I bought from the same vendor, as for the quality they appear well made as they are heavier than other sets I’ve used. Thumbs up from me!" —Megan Harding

9. A pair of oversized square sunnies for anyone you know who *has* to be on trend — without you paying a designer price. These scream "no photos please!" — but also look really great in photos, tbh.

Reviewer in the black sunglasses

Get them from Amazon for $14.98 (available in seven colors).

Promising review: "I absolutely love these glasses! I was a little wary about them because they were pretty cheap, but as soon as I took them out of the packaging, I was stunned. They honestly feel like they could be expensive designer glasses. They are very sturdy and well built. The hinges don’t squeak. They open up nice and smooth, but most importantly, they feel very comfortable and look amazing when you put them on!!! I want another pair!!!" —Elijah Nawahine

I have a pair of Feisedy glasses (the same brand) that I love — they're my go-to vacation glasses and have survived ocean water.

10. Truly ~stellar~ cubic zirconia statement earrings with *universal* appeal.

The gold tone earrings, one star on the lobe and one star dangling

Get them from Amazon for $8.49 (also available in silver or both pairs for $12.80).

Promising review: "Haven’t worn these yet, but I was pleasantly surprised when I received them. The weight is substantial but not too heavy that they’re uncomfortable. They sparkle and overall look more expensive than they actually were. Can’t wait to try them!" —Noelle Krempasky

11. A 36-LED ring light to clip right to your smartphone and take photo studio-quality Instagrams. LET THERE BE LIGHT!


It charges via USB and has three light levels you can toggle through as you click the power button so you can ~customize~ for selfies, food photos, and more.

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

Promising review: "OH MY GOODNESS! I am obsessed! I bought these for gifts for two of my teammates, but I'm keeping one for myself and ordering more. I was seriously shocked at how bright the lights are! I love that there are three settings. I compared it to my expensive ring light — and for the price and the size of this — its so perfect! Very Happy with this order! —Nichole Jane

12. An plush faux fur and sherpa blanket designed to look like sumptuous faux fur, because your home is your castle, and winter is coming.

The grey blanket with a furry side and a fleece side

The other side is super-cozy sherpa, and did I mention it's machine washable??

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 27 colors and styles).

Promising review: "I love a good blanket. When I find one that’s large, snuggly, warm, and easy to care for, I’ve feel like I’ve hit the jackpot. This blanket evokes that million dollar feeling! The color is a gorgeous slate blue that goes well with my decor. The textured fur lined side is sleek and luxurious, while the fleece lined side is soft and warm. I keep the blanket on my bed for decorative purposes, but I also use it at night to help assure my personal victory in the temperature war between between hubby and me. At night when I get cold, I toss the blanket on my side of the bed and drift off into a warm peaceful sleep. The blanket doesn’t intrude on hubby’s side of the bed. If you’re looking for an attractive, comfortable, and functional blanket, I HIGHLY recommend this one. It truly deserves the high reviews it has earned." —Fancy Glasses

13. A stylish cheese board to make any Trader Joe's cheese platter look like it was put together by Martha Stewart.

The board used to show a layout, with something sweet, smooth cheese, cheese with a bite, buttery cheese, hard cheese, something crunchy, and bread

It's made from environmentally-friendly bamboo, and it even has the names of different cheeses emblazoned on it for a ~fancier~ look.

Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in three sizes).

Promising review: "I absolutely love this charcuterie and cheese board! The hubby and I love winding down with some wine, cheese and charcuterie. We have tried other boards, and usually the crackers tumble off the board as I walk from the kitchen to the couch (Yes I am clumsy). The nice thing about this board is that is comes with grooves on each side to hold things like crackers, or olives or nuts, things that usually roll off my other boards haha." —Foreverjaded

14. An 18K gold–plated delicate crescent moon pendant with chunky gray stones for a stunning everyday piece that says "I love you to the moon and back."

The yellow gold necklace

Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in three finishes, two moons sizes, and two lengths)

Promising review: "Package came earlier than expected and without damage. The sparkle to the stones is exactly as I hoped it would be, very sparkly!! Much to my surprise when I turned the necklace over to see the back of it, the stones are actually set into the metal which means no loose stones to fall out!!! I showed my daughter the necklace and she promptly got on her phone to show me she had the earrings ($14.99) in her cart!! I know what to get her for her birthday and I know which seller to chose from! Very happy with the product and will be purchasing the earrings soon!!!" —Heather

15. A macrame plant hanger to put their leafy green bbs on even more of a pedestal than the already are.

A reviewer's hanger with a fringe bottom and a plant on it

Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in five styles).

Promising review: "This plant hanger is great! I needed something for my spider plant that allowed me to hang it and water it while in the holder. I previously was using a macrame hanger and had to remove the plant every time I needed to water it which was causing the leaves to bend. This hanger looks great and is exactly what I was looking for. Great length too." —Amy

16. A just-the-right-size planner with a stately faux leather cover, tabbed sections, gold foiling, and weekly and monthly sections so they at least feel like their life is in order. Mood.

The brown planner with gold foil year stamp

It also comes with stickers, and WHO doesn't love stickers.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two sizes and four colors).

Promising review: "I just received my new planner, and I love it. It's larger (8.5x11), but thinner. The hardcover is flexible, but still durable, and beautifully made. The appearance of the planner is very professional. The weekly guide provides plenty of space to write down my daily schedule. The elastic bookmark helps to find my place quickly, and there two more ribbon bookmarks provided. I had to place the monthly calendar tabs myself. I can find the monthly calendar easily now. I would have liked if it was already in place, but I understand if there are people who don't use such features. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase." —Arlene W.

17. A generously sized, loop-through faux fur stole to make the most bundled-up winter outfit look old Hollywood glam.

Reviewer in the navy stole

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and 18 colors).

Promising review: "Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from such an inexpensive faux fur stole, but WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! The fur is silky smooth and looks close to real. It is a great size....not too large, not too small! It has an unnoticeable loop hole, so the stole can stay put instead of sliding everywhere and having to 'hold on' to it with clenched arms. I bought this for my Great Gatsby dress and it fits in perfectly with the dress. If you are considering....I say put it in your cart and checkout!! You won't be disappointed!" —rjv4EVER

18. A three-pack of lightweight contoured eye masks that'll block light without ever pressing down on their eyelashes, guaranteeing a more restful night's sleep. Sadly does not come with a butler and breakfast in bed.


Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five color sets).

Promising review: "Finally, one that fits my face and nose without bothering my skin, 'leaking' light by my nose, or pressing on my eyelids. They're not even hot. The face gets to breathe and the light stays OUT. Very comfortable, adjustable strap, and it's not any kind of thick strap that'll bother the back of your head. It's a nice slim design on the strap with Velcro-like fastening. Very nicely made. And a three pack is a great thing. Thanks for FINALLY making a sleep mask that fits!!" —Samantha Ashe

19. A set of glittery liquid eyeshadows to put a ~lid~ on the perfect party look in just a few quick swipes, great for makeup beginners and enthusiasts alike.

The silver, gold, rose gold, purple, and gunmetal shades swatched on an arm

Get the set of five from Amazon for $13.99 (available in two color sets, plus individual shadows for $5.99).

Promising review: "These colors are gorgeous!! They last long, look beautiful and aren’t hard to remove with a makeup remover. They are not super sparkly like some so there’s no worry about looking like a disco ball yet they add so much glam to ANY look! My favorite is the iridescent one, it’s my go to for any look. Highly recommend this set, great price and excellent quality!!" —Heather Johnson

20. A lace bralette and undies set for your S.O. — you'll look like you dropped hundreds at a ritzy lingerie store.

Model in the longline plunge bralette and cheeky undies in black

Get it from Amazon for $15.29 (available in sizes S–XXL and five colors).

Promising review: "LOVE THIS. I wore this after my wedding and absolutely loved it. Perfect fit and great material for the price (actually comfortable)" —Jana

21. Ugg-like faux fur–lined slippers your butler can bring to you on a silver platter in the morning (or ya know, you can fetch yourself).

The loafer slippers in red, grey, and camel

Get them from Amazon for $22.99 (available in women's sizes 6–11 and five colors).

Promising review: "Can't believe the great quality, comfort and look at this low price. I no longer need to spend a ton of money on expensive Ugg slippers that just get worn down and stinky after a year. These are fabulous and look and feel incredibly expensive. I will see how long they hold up and report back but as of right now, best purchase at Christmastime by far!" —Rufus Henry

22. 14K gold-plated and cubic zirconia ear crawlers almost guaranteed to make your loved one say "Oh you shouldn't have!"

A reviewer in the chevron-shaped earrings

And you didn't! Splurge, at least.

Get them from Amazon for $12.95.

Promising review: "I wore these for my wedding — and then for weeks and weeks and weeks afterward. They became my every-day signature piece. Elegant, stylish and understated with an edge. I received so many compliment on their subtle glamour. After about a year, I did note tarnishing, causing them to show more silver than gold. But I loved them so much that I just ordered another pair! Worth every penny and more! I've had zero issues with quality or construction, though they could use a little more grip to keep them crawling up the ear. I would occasionally need to turn them back into position." —Amazon Customer

23. A two-wick Voluspa candle so fancy I don't even know where to begin — with the iconic black-and-gold tin or the scent, which is a blend of sparkling Champagne with notes of oak and vanilla?

A stack of the candles

BTW, it's made with hand-poured apricot and coconut wax and has a burn time of 50 hours.

Get it from Nordstrom for $18.

Promising review: "I just love the scent of this candle. It's clean, crisp with a slight sweetness to it. This candle is great for everyday/year-round use in your home. I also gives these as gifts because the scent is universal and most people enjoy it." —BShop55

You can also get curbside pickup at your local Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack!

24. A Vogue coloring book, which is filled with illustrations of photos from British Vogue in the 1950s, with all the information from the original magazine, including the month and year and what clothes are featured.


Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

Promising review: "Beautiful illustrations and good quality of paper makes this book one of the best fashion coloring books ever! This book is made for the watercolors. the description of each dress helps as the guides to the styles and colors. Love this book and want to color every page! The best fashion coloring book so far!" —Artsinme

25. 18K gold-plated snake earrings so they can slither into any room (and one party...) in style.

The dangle earrings with teardrop green stones and snakes wrapped around the top

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

26. A zodiac trinket dish with the giftee's specific sign emblazoned in gold on the top, plus their ~traits~ on the inside. Now they won't lose their rings when Mercury is in retrograde AGAIN.

The cream-colored dish with lid, and inside is "Libra charming, diplomatic, idealistic"
Urban Outfitters

For standard shipping, order by 12/18, but you can get rush shipping as late as 9 am on 12/23. You can also do curbside pickup at your local Urban Outfitters!

27. A jade rolling face massager that'll be like an at-home facial treatment, but for way less $$$.

The double-sided jade roller, bigger one one side than the other

Get it from Amazon for $23.98+ (also available in pink).

Promising review: "I'm totally obsessed with my jade roller. I waited a long time to buy one and have been following the witty company on instagram for awhile. When they announced they were coming out with jade rollers I bought one immediately. The packaging was super cute and really informative, and the roller itself is gorgeous. The quality is great, I haven't run into any issues and i've been using it daily (over a month now) along my jaw to help relieve tension, it's a lifesaver." —Kit's Picks

28. A faux sheepskin they can use as a little area rug by the bed or simply draped over a chair or ottoman for some interior design mag–style for under $25.

The curved edge (like a pelt) rug in white

Get a 2'x3' size from Amazon for $19.89 (available in seven shapes/sizes and 11 colors).

Promising review: "I did not have my hooes up high for this rug as it was fairly inexpensive. BUT i was so happy when I got it!!! It is so extremely soft, exactly what I was looking for!! 10/10." —Leilani Alvarez

29. A trio of LED flameless candles with embedded string lights and a realistic moving "flame" for a combination of the two best things: elegance and laziness — they can even set them to automatically shut off after a few hours.

A reviewer's three candles in different heights on a tray

Turn them on and off manually, or turn them on or off or set a four- or eight-hour timer with the easy breezy remote!

Get the set of three from Amazon for $23.94.

Promising review: "These candles really impressed me. They add so much ambiance to a room, especially the bedroom. I like that they can be put on a timer, which works very well, or you can use the remote to work them. They look very real and the little 'flame' moves so it adds more realism to it. They are made of wax and look totally authentic and would be great on a mantel. These do require batteries, but they don't seem to go through them quickly, as I've had mine on daily and they are still bright." —Faith Bryner

30. An insulated, marbleized water bottle designed to keep water cold for a stylish reason to stay hydrated.

Two of the bottles with attached tops (on a loop to keep them handy) in white marble and black marble prints

Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 31 colors and patterns).

Promising review: "This is hands down one of the best water bottles I have ever bought and I'd say I am a water bottle connoisseur...I near collect the things! Between the insulation and my water staying ice cold almost all day long, the mouthpiece engineering is what I like the most. It has two different screw top lids, one big enough to fit ice then the other is the mouthpiece big enough to get a good amount of water out but small enough where it isn't spilling all down your shirt if you need a sip while driving! My only complaint would be that sometimes when I go to screw off the lid to take a drink the entire two-part lid screws off instead...not a huge deal because every other positive makes up for it! I'm resisting the urge to purchase it in every color!!" —makenzi bezemek

31. 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. You know they'll look really cool sitting out on the vanity or bathroom counter.


Get a set of five from Amazon for $11.99.

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

32. An elegant Bodum pour-over coffee maker for fancy five-star hotel room service style in the comfort of their own home.

Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in two colors and several other sizes/styles).

Promising review: "Super easy to use, makes a mean cup of joe, and is nowhere near the price of a Chemex. I use mine on a daily basis and would absolutely recommend this product to any of my coffee loving friends." —Brad Lemons
