Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "New favorite curling iron. I LOVE this curling iron! Such a great value for six different irons! So far I’ve used the two biggest barrels, and they work amazingly! My hair held the curls through wind, running, and even sleep! Shipped super fast! Highly recommend this seller, and this product!!!" —Amazon

3. A percussion massager with six different head attachments for targeting different areas. Reviewers love it for soothing sore muscles, easing neck and shoulder pain, and working through tough knots. And who doesn't love a massage?!

Amazon

It has an LCD touch screen to control the speed, a five-hour run time on a single charge, but auto-shuts off after 20 minutes so you know how long to use it.

Promising review: "I use this massager every day. At the mall they were selling for $350 and worked great but too high. I bought it on Amazon for less than $100. I use this massager everyday from head to toe, watching a movie, sitting at my computer, literally everywhere. If this massager was to break down, I, without hesitation would have to get another one. It's durable, three settings are powerful, but normally use first setting speed, maybe second, well built and not cheap plastic and rechargeable. Best buy I've made and recommend this product." —Edward Torres

Promising review: "My boyfriend absolutely loved it for his birthday present. I would 100% recommend this to anyone that has sore muscle from working out or any other daily life pain. The heads are really easy to change in between and I like how many different attachments there are. Best gift ever." —Tyler Gardner

Get it from Amazon for $54.49.

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

4. A National Geographic geodes kit that'll make any kid (or adult, for that matter) say "ooh" *twice* — once when they open the prezzie, and again when they smash the geode to reveal the gorgeous crystal insides.

amazon.com, Amazon

This science kit includes 10 natural crystal-filled geodes, one pair of safety goggles, three display stands and one learning guide.

Promising review: "My daughter is 10 and this kept her busy for HOURS! She had so much fun and was excited every time she got a glimpse of what might be inside. A couple of them were pretty cool, while the rest were just white. She didn't care, she loves them all. She was so proud to gift them to her grandparents." —Michelle

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three sizes).

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

5. Werewolf, a sneaky party game you need to order for your friend group ASAP — especially if you love the game Mafia. Everyone will get excited when this gets unwrapped, because now you have a sneaky + fun after-present activity!

The card deck
Amazon

It works a little bit like Mafia — you draw a card and play the role assigned to you (if you're a werewolf, you're trying to destroy the village; if you're a villager, you're trying to save it, etc.). You can play with up to *35* people, so it's great for even larger gatherings — though warning, your friendships will be tested.

Promising review: "My group of friends love game night. We've tried all sorts of games, and when I brought this game out, everyone was skeptical. Now no one wants to play any other game but this one. Super fun! The fact that it comes in a simple deck of cards makes it so easy to carry around and bring to any party occasion just in case. With the different characters you can mix it up so no two games are ever the same. The witch character has truly tested some friendships already. The game also gives you extra cards for you to create your own characters with their own unique roles and powers. We are looking forward to creating some interesting new roles and throwing them in the mix. If you have a loud group of friends, this is the game for you!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

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

6. A faux fur blanket with two sides — one fleece, one furry — so they can customize their heat level while cuddling. Whether you know someone who freezes in the office but still wants something chic, an interior design-aspiring college student needing to spruce up their dorm, or just the most stylish dog alive, this is a great blanket.

Promising review: "This is the softest blanket you'll ever feel. It keeps you warm and does not overheat. It the the best throw/ accent blanket we have ever had for our living room, including our electric blankets (which can get you too warm and are not as soft). Wish we would have gotten the twin size, since everyone in the house (including the cat) like to use it. We'll probably end up getting another one!" —Kristen Madrigal

Amazon

Promising review: "I get tagged in memes that say 'dachshund through the snow' every winter so I finally decided to get a shirt and I have to say I’m obsessed. I absolutely love this sweatshirt. It fits large but that’s only because I ordered a size up. Also, it arrived two days before the expected delivery date so that was a plus! Thank you so much for a great product!" —Rachel

9. Double-wall insulated rocks glasses that'll look amazing sitting out on the bar cart, keep their drink cooler (or warmer, if they use 'em for coffee) longer, and DON'T SWEAT!

The two glasses
Amazon

That's right, no annoying condensation. They're made of sturdy borosilicate glass, so you can use them for hot or cold drinks, because any beverage deserves to look a little more beautiful. AND they're scratch-resistant and microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

Promising review: "These were much better than I could have imagined. They feel great in the hand and don't sweat. I use mine almost every day and they still look great after being put into the dishwasher. The size is perfect for old fashioneds as well as rum and Cokes or gin and tonics. They were shipped in a first-class box with plenty protection. These would make a great gift for connoisseur on your list." —riovalley

11. A nonstick Avengers waffle maker for extra super breakfasts — but don't worry, the golden brown results will be much easier (and more pleasant) to chew than synthetic webbing

amazon.com

Promising review: "I use pancake mix from Costco; and I make perfect golden brown waffles with ease. The design allows for a very evenly made waffle/pancake without too much 'technical' effort." —sword76484

Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

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

12. A Nutribullet with a full-size blender and two to-go blender cups for anyone who loves smoothies, hummus, soup, and other blended delicacies you don't need to make A TON of at a time — but hates using extra dishes. AKA every single person. Their old blender wishes it could.

The blender set whipping up a smoothie
Amazon

It has both a regular large blender container, plus two travel cups for one less thing to clean.

Promising review: "I’ve been using my NutriBullet every day, usually multiple times a day, to make smoothies using frozen fruit, frozen veggies, fresh veggies, and other ingredients. By using frozen ingredients I don't need ice, just cold water. This thing works great. I had an older model for years. It still worked. But I wanted one with a faster motor. Everything has been improved since the last one I bought. It is so easy to use, and it is so easy to clean. It is noisy, but it’s so efficient that you don’t need to leave it on long. I love that when I press the ‘extract’ button it goes ahead and does its thing and a minute or so later I have a smoothie. I have only positive things to say about my NutriBullet. I gave the old one away and it’s still working for the person I gave it to." —LaurieJay

Get it from Amazon for $112.99.

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

13. A stylish acrylic block and set of sleek black knives, because this'll really dress up your kitchen — and the bonus is they actually are really great knives too! Reviewers swear they're the best, sharpest knives — especially for the price.

Amazon

This bb comes with 13 knives, a pair of kitchen scissors, a peeler, and a two-stage knife sharpener.

Promising review: "These knives are great! They stay super sharp, they’re comfortable to hold, and I love how much counter space it leaves as opposed to a big bulky knife block. Fits perfectly in my minimalist kitchen!!! And it looks great on my counter being one of the few things that I keep on my countertop! It is the perfect amount of knives without being too many knives (I don’t like things in excess)! I have never had a cheese knife before, and this baby is my favorite one in the whole set! LOL! It slices through hard cheeses like butter! Have not tried on soft cheese, but I’m sure it’ll be great because it is super sharp! I can’t say enough about how much I love these knives!!" —Sadie Allen

Get them from Amazon for $59.99.

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

14. An HP portable photo printer that'll print photos on-the-go for trendy photo-within-a-photo Instagrams or at home for easy wall décor.

instagram.com

It's pocket-sized, works via Bluetooth and ready to go anywhere! AND you can edit photos before printing to make them *extra* artsy!

Promising review: "I bought this for daughter-in-law and my wife had such a fit over it, I bought one for her too. She has had it three weeks now and hasn't stopped telling me how much she loves it. Prints a very nice picture and there was nothing disappointing about the picture or the printer. We love that it has print-sensitive paper, doesn't require an ink cartridge and works by Bluetooth so a cable isn't necessary. What a little gem! Brilliant idea and product!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (also available in bundles with paper).

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

15. A Bearaby weighted blanket if they love their current one (or even have just been wanting to try one at all) but want something that won't overheat them — and one that's so cute, they'll want to keep it on display.

The white cotton knit blanket on a sofa
Bearaby

The large knit style is super chic, and the organic cotton is breathable (and there's nothing in it to create the weight *other* than cotton, so no uncomfy glass beads). If you're really worried about overheating, it also comes in a cooling version made out of Tencel. I have this in the cooling version (in the color "avocado") and let's just say I've used it quite a bit in recent times — I *love* it, and it's actually extremely cute.

Promising review: "I love this napper a little too much. I carry it up and down stairs all day as I move between the bed and couch for crafting, reading, etc. I like to grasp onto something when I sleep (usually the edge of the pillowcase), so the loops are awesome for tucking in my fingers and toes. Unlike another weighted blanket I own, the napper is stylish so I don't mind if it's out in the living room, and I can wash it, a huge deal given how often it's used. It's a bit of a pain to dry (it took three cycles in the dryer, so next time I am going to hand dry). The weight is very comforting, and I don't have an issue with overheating, even using it in the middle of summer in a muggy climate." —Madeline B.

Get it from Bearaby for $199+ (available in four weights and eight colors).

Bearaby is a woman-owned brand making weighted blankets in sustainable materials.

Shipping info: Free shipping takes 6-10 business days. You can also choose to pay an additional fee to get Faster Shipping, which takes 2-5 business days, 2-Day Shipping, or Standard Overnight Shipping - all handled by FedEx.

16. A Van Gogh coloring book they can fill out while watching the "Vincent and the Doctor" episode of Doctor Who — they'll have to be careful not to cry onto the book while watching, they won't want the artwork to smudge.

17. A trio of mini Pat McGrath MatteTrance lip products for makeup enthusiasts looking for luxury at a less-than-splurge price — and they come in an adorable sequin-filled bag for a fun 'n' fancy unwrapping experience.

Sephora

It comes with the MatteTrance Lipstick in shade Elson 3 (a truly GORGEOUS red in a velvety matte finish that I, for one, love), the Lust Gloss in shade Aliengelic, and the PermaGel Ultra Lip Pencil in shade Bloodlust.

Promising review: "Wow! What a great way to try put Pat McGrath's iconic lip products! And dang... these don't disappoint! I also have the pink version which imo beats Charlotte Tillbury's line of pinks. Overall, super pleased! Her lip glosses are so shiny and never sticky! The iridescent shimmer is just stunning." —mystii

Get the set of three from Sephora for $25.

Shipping info: Standard shipping is 1–3 days, members get free 1–2 day shipping, and expedited shipping is available for an additional cost. You can also purchase online and pickup at your local store!

18. A set of jumbo fizzy aromatherapy bath bombs to moisturize any bath-lover's skin and make their next soak a little more spa-like. Ahhhh, relaxation in a steamy tub o' good smells. What a way to spend an evening!

amazon.com, amazon.com

They're each about the size of a tennis ball — and they won't stain your tub, so you won't have to scrub afterwards.

Promising review: "I have been using bath bombs for years. I've used cheap brands, drugstore brands, luxury brands (Lush, YL) and more. This box gives all bath bombs I've tried a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I've used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs. I will definitely purchase this box again when I run out and honestly it's a great price at a little more than $2 a piece. You really can't beat it!" —Heather H

Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $24.97.

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

19. A cute and colorful air frier that'll harness the magic of circulating hot air to add a crunch to all their favorite foods with ease. Just a warning, the gift of perfectly crispy fries, wings, and more at home without hauling out a deep frier might bring a tear to someone's eye.

The light blue air fryer with basket filled with tater tots
Amazon

It has a 3-quart capacity (aka it can handle a 1-pound bag of fries), an auto-shutoff feature, and a removable basket for easy cleanup.

Promising review: "So glad I have this air fryer! Was amazed at how simple clean up was even after I used it cooking something with a sticky marinade! Soaked for literally just a couple of minutes and everything just simply wiped away! Instructions on use were easy to follow and loved that the manual included a few good recipes. Fryer is quiet when in use and doesn't take up a lot of space, so if you have a small kitchen this is ideal! I am looking forward to trying out new items in this air fryer!" —Pam McGrath

Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in four colors).

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

20. The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, a volume filled with delicious dishes like treacle tart (Harry's favorite, duh!), Kreacher's French onion soup, and Mrs. Weasley's mince pies – all with the scenes that inspired them.

Amazon, amazon.com

There's a section with four different cake recipes inspired by the four birthday cakes sent to Harry on his 14th birthday by Hermione, Ron, Sirius, and Hagrid. Yep, I'm crying again.

Promising review: "I love this book! Some of the recipes are complex and wouldn't be great to try with smaller children — not all of them though. Other than that, each recipe refers to the book and chapter where it appears in the Harry Potter series and includes a short history about the origin of or inspiration for the recipe. The chocolate buttermilk sheet cake has become a family favorite that people request for their birthday cake (my mom calls it the Harry Potter cake). I even bought this book as a graduation present for two of my Harry Potter obsessed students." —Jenn Pond

21. A Star Wars-themed coding kit to teach young'uns (recommended for ages 6–900, like Yoda) how to build a sensor that responds to their movements — and use The Force of course!

Amazon

*No* coding experience is necessary, and it works with most tablets and computers. It comes with step-by-step creative challenges, and they can do anything from making X-wings fly, to force-pushing Stormtroopers, to maneuvering a lightsaber — to even making Baby Yoda levitate!

Promising review: "As a programmer and a huge Star Wars fan, this kit is right up my alley and I was so excited to give it to my niece who is also a huge fan! She loved putting the kit together, connecting it to her parent's iPad, and learning to code. The software provides a great framework that starts fast so kids can see cool results from their code quickly, but it's proved to be surprisingly deep in the time we've spent working on it. My niece has started to grasp some core programming concepts that I hope will start her journey to becoming a programmer like me (okay maybe I'm planning a little too far ahead). The Star Wars tie-in is great, as it got my niece interested in something she otherwise might be hesitant to try! I think the only downside is that my sister and her husband don't see their iPad very much anymore. :)" —LBT

Promising review: "My mom wanted to get my brother cuff links for Christmas. We looked everywhere for initial or monogrammed. She is 95 and on a budget but wanted something nice. These were perfect. Well-made, quality material. They were both pleased with the cuff links." —Jean A Kirby

Two models sitting on the round blanket
Amazon

Promising review: "Best purchase ever. Seriously. I thought after buying it I would regret it, $20 for a 5-foot blanket is a lot. But no. I opened the box containing its full glory, and I was stunned. I tore open the package, eager to experience the greatness of the Tortilla Blanket. The world around me will never compare to this blanket. As I wrapped it around myself, years of happiness sprung to my eyes, the pure softness was too much for my mortal body. I was consumed by the ultimate power of this breath-taking blanket, and now it will never leave my side. I cannot let this true beauty go, never." —Mary Maples

Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in four sizes and seven colors and styles, including pizza and waffle patterns).

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

One reviewer even gave the blanket to her nephew half-wrapped in foil so it looked like a giant burrito. HOW CUTE IS THAT?!

24. The entire *extended* *4K* Lord of the Rings film trilogy, including almost two hours of extended movie content (plus 26 hours of bonus material) to get them obsessed — you could even say watching this once a year will become a ~hobbit~.

amazon.com, Amazon

Reviewers say this is the best 4K movie experience they've had.

Promising review: "If you're here you probably really want to know about the 4K experience. I did. Well don't worry. This is now the benchmark I'm comparing all other 4K movies to. The quality of these movies blows my mind. We have about 10 4K movies and none look as good at this. Fellowship of the Ring was filmed 20 years ago, yet looks lightyears better in 4K than Wonder Woman does. I don't know how they pulled this off. We have a Samsung QLED TV with 7.1 surround. This has been THE best movie experience I've ever had with this setup. Truly stunning. .You can get a glimpse of just how good this looks from my pic (taken with a cell phone of a tv). The level of detail is off the charts. If you're a LOTR fan and have a 4K TK GET THIS!" —Double D

Shipping info: Arrives next day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

25. A PhoneSoap sanitizer to kill 99.9% of germs on the toilet seat that is their phone. It fits almost all phone sizes (including the iPhone X), demolishes bacteria with UV rays, AND charges their device at the same time.

Amazon, amazon.com

Yes, the photo on the right IS from a reviewer who tested the bacteria levels on their daughter's and husband's phones before and after use. W O W.

Promising review: "I work in a large dental clinic with 50+ docs and even more assistants. Anyone who knows about dentistry knows that there are a lot of aerosols given out during almost every procedure. Since we don't have a radio in the operatories, I've had to use my phone for music. Before phone soap I had to wipe my phone down every time with Cavicide wipes...not the best for your phone. Enter PhoneSoap! I'm able to sanitize my phone without destroying it with cavicide! We've even tested and swabbed the phone for cultures before and after...this sucker works! Hands down, great investment. I'll be buying another one for the home because this one is staying in my office." —James

Amazon

Promising review: "Fast delivery! Beautiful, high quality product. The color and quality far exceeded my expectations, considering the reasonable price I had paid. The material is soft yet heavy, like a comfy cable-knit sweater. The blanket even comes with its own drawstring carrying bag, which will make it easy for my daughter to pack it for college. We washed it on the hand wash cycle in our washer, and it came out perfectly with no stretches or color running. At the risk of sounding like I work for their company, I believe this truly a gorgeous product that you will be very pleased with!" —LisaKay

The retro music system with a hinged top record player
Amazon

Promising review: "We purchased this for my father-in-law, age 92, and wanted simplicity for him to be able to digitize his phonographs which is something he wanted to do. This was not only simple for him to use it also had GREAT SOUND. We were amazed. It really made the old phonographs some awesome. We thought we'd have to connect to external speakers to give it better sound (which the unit has connections for external speakers if you desire to do so)...but that was not necessary. The speakers delivered fine sound. We were very happy with this purchase. We will probably order one for ourselves. This 8 in 1 records to USB. We are very pleased." —Janine

It can also connect to their device via cable.

Promising review: "Oh my gosh, I love this! I got mine in the mail yesterday and ended up playing with it for about five hours last night LOL. It connects via Bluetooth so you can connect it to your phone — the music and your singing comes out of the microphone's speaker. It has a volume control for your voice and for the music and also an echo feature. You can put an SD card into the bottom of it and record yourself, or connect it with an audio out to record on one of those karaoke apps on your phone. Between this and being able to find just about any song on karaoke via YouTube, you could easily have your own karaoke parties at home!" —Ferretocious

Promising review: "Excellent sound quality and easily to pair with many devices. I have four other pairs of earbuds and these are the best I have found. I use earbuds every night to listen to movies on TV so as not to disturb the wife while she sleeps. These are fantastic for that. I also use them during the day to listen to music while walking or biking. The best earbuds at an incredible value. Everyone who needs earbuds should have at least a pair of these in there possession. Awesome quality in the best earbuds I have found online!" —Michael1

It comes with three embroidery hoops, thread, cotton aida with the pattern on it, six needles, and instructions.

Promising review: "Finally! A beginner level craft kit that has simple instructions! I'm somebody that likes to try new things, but gives up in the middle of a project. I thought I would have the same issue with this, but I absolutely love it. I just started on the last design that is included in this kit. First one took me a little over a week, and the second one I finished in just a couple of days. The more practice I got out of this, I found myself coming up with my own ideas of what to do next once this is complete. I came across minor issues along the way, but it was only because I'm a lefty, and there's a couple of videos online that are specifically for left handed folk like myself that are super helpful. They make wonderfully cute little gifts! Gave my first one to my mom, and plan to give my second piece to my grandmother." —Bee Roth

36. A luxurious double-sided shaggy faux-fur duvet set that'll transform their already amazing bed into a cloud-like paradise. It'll make it so hard to get out of bed, every day will feel like a No Bones Day (per Noodle the Pug on TikTok, of course).

Just choose between the two (very cozy) sides: faux-fur plush velvet and get to cuddling! Btw, the twin set comes with one pom-pom fringed pillow sham, and the larger sets include two.

Promising review: "THIS is the best money I've ever spent SO WORTH IT! Wanna make your bed feel like a cloud of divine bliss and your room HEAVENLY? BUY THIS! Seriously, thank you Lifevero and Amazon this bed set is BOMB! I thought the sheet would be too hot to sleep on but nope! Super breathable and SO SOFT! I can even say I've gotten BETTER SLEEP on this bed set!" —Kylie Lynne

Promising review: "If my house caught on fire, this is the first thing I’d grab. But seriously, this is one of my favorite things in my whole house. I feel like it tied my entire room together. I get so many compliments on it and it seriously so cozy and well made. My only complaint would be how hard thing thing makes it to get out of bed in the mornings. It’s incredibly soft and isn’t the type of 'fur' that will mat and get gross-looking over time. I rely heavily on reviews when I buy things so I’m here to tell you — if you’re on the fence about buying this ... do it!! Also, the pillowcases are amazing also. Super soft and the pom-pom fringe is adorable." —SK

37. A pair of meat-shredding claws for the barbecue or rotisserie chicken aficionado in your life. Seriously tho, do you know all the great ways you can rehash chicken?

Promising review: "This has to be one of the best gifts for your favorite foodie. It's excellent for so many different kitchen tasks. Makes a big shredding job easy as slicing bread. I've bought several of these for gifts and they were much appreciated. They come in many different colors. Easy to store and a very handy tool to have around for BBQs and Thanksgiving. Pretty much any time that you are working with a large cut of meat, beef, poultry, pork, even a melon, you name it, this is the tool you'll want to reach for every time. Moving from pan to platter would otherwise be unmanageable and spell train wreck in many cases. Not so with these. You will not be disappointed!" —Angelonia
