Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!)

    Promising review: "Easy to do and came in time for Christmas! I messaged vendor worried they wouldn't get here in time and they took the time to look into where my socks were in production and were very kind. They turned out great and everyone I showed loved them!" —Breanna T

    3. A build-your-own *life-size* skeleton kit all but guaranteed to make the spooky puzzle–lover in your life say "O M G!!!!". It has cardboard pieces with indentations to fold and assemble (aka nothing to cut or glue) plus anatomical labels in English and Latin. And the joints are all moveable!

    Promising review: "Highly recommend for anyone who loves puzzles, models or keeping busy during a cold winters day or rainy evening. Like a great puzzle, this took some time to assemble but what a joy to work on with the family. Instructions and hardware included." —Fun Shopper

    The black rectangular speaker that's shorter than a candle on a bookshelf with gold lettering that says Marshall
    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    I have this speaker and I *love* it — it lives right on my bookshelves (without taking up basically *any* room) and fills my apartment with high quality sound. The lil' portable size is perfect so I can grab it and take it into the kitchen for baking jams™ or into my bathroom for my latest in-shower karaoke session (sorry neighbors).

    7. 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

    It has a three-quart capacity (aka it can handle a one-pound bag of fries), an auto-shut off feature, and a removable basket for easy clean-up.

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in four colors).

    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

    8. A 2021 Jeopardy desk calendar for the trivia buff who wants to prepare for their eventual game show domination. Each day has a different question and wager amount, so you can keep track of your ~score~ throughout the year.

    Two examples of pages from the calendar with the question, date, category (art and astronomy in the examples), and dollar amount of the wager

    And you're going to want to buy it for decades to come — according to an Amazon question answerer, "I cannot tell you exactly how many years we’ve been using/enjoying this calendar—perhaps 30—and don’t recall any repeats."

    Get the set from Glossier for $30 (valued at $34; available in five Boy Brow shades and six Generation G shades).

    Promising review: "Boy brow is one of my favorite products. Stays put all day and so easy to use. I don't spend much time on my brows, just swipe this on for a little extra definition and good to go. The lipstick is also great. I love that I can put on a little for a light wash of color or really layer it on for a more opaque look. Too bad no one sees my lips under my mask!" —Injohnso

    11. A Threat Level Midnight poster that'll please anyone whose favorite action star is Michael Scarn.

    The poster with the Office cast in character and the title of the film
    Jesse Johnson Illustration Via Amazon

    Get it from Jesse Johnson Illustration on Amazon Handmade for $18.

    12. A Hum electric toothbrush with three modes, a timer to ensure they go the full two minutes of brushing, Bluetooth capabilities to point out any missed spots, and a battery that lasts 10 days for longer trips. It's like giving the gift of a great dental checkup!

    The teal toothbrush with a phone showing the app and text "guides you to brush better"

    We love a practical gift that still feels like a treat.

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99 (available in blue and teal).

    Promising review: "I was always one of those people who thought I was doing a good job by brushing my teeth quickly but when I went to the dentist I was always told I need to keep doing better. I’ve been avoiding electric toothbrushes because I simply didn’t want to pay the big price tag. This one was on sale during prime so I thought why not just try it? Oh my gosh, mind blown! Best toothbrush EVER!! I’ve never been able to get my mouth this clean before. The app is super helpful showing me where to brush & what percentage clean that area is. When I reach 100% it goes to the next zone. I like too that I can pause brushing to spit or take a breath by simply taking the brush out of my mouth. I’m so excited about brushing my teeth for the first time in my life. And I can hardly wait to go to the dentist & see what they tell me! If you’re on the fence, BUY THIS TOOTHBRUSH! You won’t regret it." —Carissa

    An example Trunk with sweaters, jeans, jackets, and more

They pay a $25 styling fee (which is credited towards anything they choose to keep), and items typically fall in the $50-$300 range. You can choose either men's or women's sizes!

    Get a gift card they can use at Trunk Club from Nordstrom for $25+.

    Learn more about Trunk Club here.

    14. A deck of customized playing cards with their own photo on the backs so they can show their poker buddies that they really mean BUSINESS. What a fun stocking stuffer idea!

    The deck of cards with a collage of photos and initials on the back

    Just hit the "personalize" button and add photos — you can even do a little collage.

    Get it from Shutterfly for $11.99 (originally $19.99).

    Promising review: "I purchased the personalized playing cards as a bridal shower gift and had the soon-to-be bride and groom's picture placed on the cards. The deck turned out fantastic and exactly as I hoped! I can't wait to give them this gift. :)" —Hillary

    15. Villainous, a strategy-based game featuring your favorite Disney villains (duh!) so everyone in the family can bring out their inner evil queen.

    The board game

    Six people (ages 10+ recommended) can play as their favorite villain — Maleficent, Jafar, Ursula, Captain Hook, the Queen of Hearts, and Prince John — each with different abilities and objectives.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.97.

    Promising review: "I love board games, particularly more adventurous and more adult ones, but getting my wife to play them with me is like pulling teeth. This one is very easy to learn but a challenge to master, which makes it accessible for those who are casual board gamers but enjoyable for the more hardcore enthusiast. Each play-through is different depending on what characters each player chooses, the strategy they apply, and the random draw of the cards. Can't wait until they release expansions with new villains." —Phil

    16. An individual box (or gift subscription!) to The Sip, a subscription box of all *sparkling wines* for a little extra celebration as needed all year long.

    The three bottles and the box

    Promising review: "I bought this for a friend, she hasn’t taken it off since she put it on. It hasn’t lost any quality at all, beautiful ring!" —Rebecca F.

    18. A wine-aerating spout that'll help their three-buck chuck breathe and open up, helping the individual flavors and ~nuances~ of the wine be more apparent — even to beginner wine palates.


    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.95.

    Promising review: "I am not a wine specialist, but I know what I like and buy very good wine at very reasonable prices. I did a taste test to see if I could notice a difference. Sipped some wine out of the bottle left to breathe for a couple of minutes; then some wine poured through the aerator and sipped immediately. The difference is VERY NOTABLE, even to my untrained palate. The wine tasted fresher, smoother, less harsh and more flavorful! I no longer drink reds without using these. And if I forget, I pour the wine back in the bottle and attach the aerator. Another nice feature? There are no wine drops coming down the side of the aerator, so no more risk of dripping onto a tablecloth or a shirt." —J. Long

    19. An almost-too-cute rose gold cheese knife set, housed in an acrylic (and cheese-patterned!) stand to take their wine and snack nights to the next level.

    The knife set

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

A *15*-tool multitool for the handiest person you know, complete with (deep breath) phillips screwdriver, medium screwdriver, small screwdriver, can opener, bottle opener, wire stripper, needle-nose pliers, serrated knife, ruler, file, carabiner, and more. This bb does *almost* as much as they do.

    The stainless steel tool

    Get it from Backcountry for $59.95.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this multi-tool. I always have it in my car and have found countless scenarios where it has been extremely beneficial. Also a great item to carry on the trail and around the campsite. Leatherman, and the sidekick specifically, is high quality and knowing that it is reliable is a huge plus. I love the carabiner that came with the Sidekick as well! I use it for my everyday keychain and love the subtle bottle opener on it. Two thumbs up!" —Sam Hurst

    21. A John Frieda hot brush for anyone who loves a good blowout. This is like getting a gift card to a blow dry bar, but it'll last wayyyyy longer.

    Left: The author having used the photo with text "the results last for days and days" / right: a reviewer using the round tool to blow out their hair

    Get it from Amazon for $39.92.

    Promising review: "I am not a paid person who writes reviews. In fact I usually don't write them at all. But let me start out by saying holy crap! This is amazing, not only was it so easy and fast... I have a salon blowout that actually looks great...and I never went to the salon! So I can't so my hair at all ever. The best I do is flat iron or messy bun, mkay? But I'm obsessed. When I go to the salon it looks great for two days and then bam I'm crying, 'cause I can't get my hair pretty like she did it, and now I hate it and myself. Sound familiar? Well I'm living proof this is amazing and it truly works. I won't lie I was hesitant because this looks and sound like crap/too good to be true. It's not!!! Happy buying — I'm buying another for my mom for Xmas how awesome!" —tangi raysor

    I gave this to myself, and it's one of my all-time favorite self-gifts — I use it EVERY TIME I blow out my hair. Check out my full review of the John Frieda hot brush for more info!

    Each silicone mold makes two at a time, so you and a ghoulfriend can enjoy your scotches together.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in black and grey).

    Promising review: "I was looking just to make fun ice cubes for parties and came across this. I was a little skeptical at first but followed the directions and wow! The ice came out in skull shapes perfectly. Removal from the silicone tray was simple. These are great for parties or for everyday use as they last longer than regular ice cubes." —RJM 73

    25. An octet of Disney princess–inspired Colourpop liquid lipsticks with velvety, buildable coverage for lipstick enthusiasts and anyone looking for their perfect shade alike.

    Get the set of eight from Colourpop for $59.

    26. 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.


    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

    Model in the fair isle slippers with the tops cuffed to show the sherpa lining

    Thank you, Oprah, for making me suddenly buy these on a super-cold winter's day in 2018. My feet, which are consistently freezing, have been warmer than ever since. They have non-slip bottoms, which are important for my clumsy self, and they really get the job done. Sometimes they are the *only* thing that can get (and keep) my feet warm. I bought the 'llama pink' pattern, but there are TONS to choose from.

    Get them from Amazon for $14.33+ (available in two sizes: adult regular and adult large and 69 colors and patterns)

    Promising review: "My wife's feet are always cold. She has worn alpaca slippers to bed for years. Then I saw these Pudus and decided to try them. They are superior to anything we've ever found. They are snug and the warmest socks/slippers ever. The rubbery stuff on the bottom serves as a non-slip surface without being solid like a shoe sole. They are simply perfect for lounging and sleeping." —Richard Mann

    36. An Amazon Fire TV stick they can simply plug into they existing TV and stream all the shows, movies, and music they want at the push of a button.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    Promising review: "After months and months of debate. I finally decided to drop cable and go 100% streaming. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner. This device provides you with many apps and ways to watch a lot of TV, movies, news, sports, and local programming. I haven't fully dug into all the apps. But so far I'm highly satisfied. The set up was easy and I can always find something to watch. I can't believe I was paying Comcast up to $200 monthly for the same shows. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️" —Greg

    37. And a stemless wine glass for dachshund lovers who need to sit! and stay! in one place with a glass of the good stuff after a trying week.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in five foods).

    Promising review: "I honestly didn't think this would be as big of a hit as it was! My brother loves pizza and he's been recovering with a knee injury so he's been couch surfing. He opened it and was laughing — he actually loves it and uses it all the time! And he said he doesn't need other blankets cause this one is so warm. It's a great all around fun gift and actually useable, warm, and cozy!" —VJB

    39. Or a 10-pound weighted blanket that'll feel just like a soothing hug for an added dose of security. And unlike other weighted versions, this just looks like a regular fleece blanket, thanks to its (washable!) cover a with a silky side and a nubby side for fully customizable relaxation.

    A model under the grey and light blue blanket

    Get it from Amazon for $53.04 (available in three weights/sizes and three colors).

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE! I cannot say it enough, this has been the best purchase! I've always had trouble sleeping and with my new blanket those troubles have gone away. I feel such a sense of security that I know right out! It is super soft and really great quality. I've had everyone in my family try it and I will now be buying one for my husband and one for my son. Totally recommend to all for a great night of sleep!" —Aleyda Galdamez

    40. A two-in-one straightener and curling iron with a geometric printed case to bring sleek hair on any vacation (or just to de-clutter their bathroom vanity), minimal effort required. I'm not saying forgetful people should keep this in their suitcase, but I'm totally saying that.

    The iron shown closed to work as a curling iron and open to use as a flat iron

    It has a swiveling, tangle-free cord, plus dual voltage for international trips.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (also available in white).

    Promising review: "I bought this for a trip to Italy, as I didn't have a dual-voltage iron (and you can't just use a converter-adapter combination with things that heat up). I liked that it was a flat iron and curling iron combo, so I could change things up as I desired. It worked beautifully on our trip--I look nice in all my selfies ;) -- and continues to work beautifully at home. In fact, I've replaced my old flat iron with this because of the versatility and now use this one every day. Btw, in case you are wondering, it automatically switches to the appropriate voltage, no looking for a switch or anything. You don't need to do anything but plug it in! Great product!" —Diane Field

    And if they already have curls or coils and are looking for a heat-free styler, check out these foam curling rods ($10.99 on Amazon) that reviewers with everything from 3A to 4C hair swear by.

    41. A chunky knit satin-lined winter beanie to keep their head toasty warm when the temperatures drop *and* help protect their hair from damage and moisture loss without disrupting their style or curl pattern.

    Beautifully Warm

    It's also super stretchy to fit their hair!

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 10 colors and packs of two) or Beautifully Warm for $24.99 (available in 11 colors, each listed separately plus a version with a faux fur pompom).

    Promising review: "Finally a winter hat that I can actually wear. I’ve had it for a good part of the winter now and I’m so happy with it. Often right after I wash my hair I just put it in a silk cap while I do things around the house as it’s drying so it's not in my face. Recently if I need to go out I put my hair in my hat because it’s silk-lined, so it does the same thing and just looks like I’ve got a winter hat on. When you put it on your already styled hair, it doesn’t mess up the curl pattern at all. I don’t have a bad thing to say about it." —Aliana K.

    Beautifully Warm is a Black-owned business that makes satin-lined hats including both winter styles like he one above, plus and cap-style hats with a scrunchie in the back designed for natural hair. They make kids' sizes too!

    Promising review: "I'm not going to lie, I was drawn to this because it was Disney. Ironically I ran across this right when my crock pot broke.

    Get it from Amazon for $54.95.

    Promising review: "Over the years I've bought and returned a few different massagers. The ones that attach to the chair are just too big. The smaller ones hurt or just vibrate. The sharper image ones are junk. So... I took a chance with this one. Wow! This really works. I like that it's smaller so you can actually position it where you want. It turns in one direction for a little while and then it switches and goes the other way. When it turns, it really feels like a massage instead of that vibrating feeling. I really like how compact it is and how it doesn't move too fast. It's just a steady massage that's hands free. I can use it on my calfs, legs, back, shoulders and neck. If this breaks I will definitely buy another one. This is the best massager I ever had." —cbear

    Promising review: "My wife and I have an incredible sense of humor, we also like to let people know when they look good. When we saw this door mat we just HAD to have it. It's the first door mat for our new home and we couldn't have asked for anything better. The mat is heavy and super durable. We have had it now for about three months and it's hanging in strong!" —Tiffany Davis

    Get it from Amazon for 31.99+ (available in 11 colors).

    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
