59 Presents That Actually Won't Get Re-Gifted

Prepare for genuine reactions of delight when opened — and a whole lotta jealousy from everyone else.

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are tricky and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. 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!

1. An etched rocks glass personalized with their favorite city in map form, whether they're homesick or falling in love with a new place, that'll make for a chic bar cart statement *and* warm their heart.

2. A crepe-making set complete with 12-inch nonstick griddle, wooden spreader, and spatula to ensure the lightest, thinnest crepes outside of Paris, even on just a weekday morning.

3. An embroidered cap, because the only sound better than "Here, this is for you" is the "DUN DUN" that begins every Law & Order episode.

A black baseball hat with "executive producer Dick Wolf" embroidered on it

4. An at-home putting green with three holes for practicing their short game so they don't leave the golf course in tears...again. But seriously, 10,000 5-star reviewers swear by this!

5. The Beachwaver, a curling iron that *rotates* automatically to create curls or waves in seconds — without the arm workout. This'll be a treat for anyone who's ever said they're "bad at curling their hair" — and reviewers say their style lasts and lasts!

6. A mini Marshall speaker that packs a wallop of sound in a small package, perfect for anyone who lives in a smaller space but loves jamming out.

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

8. A disco ball ice bucket that'll up the party vibes in any home — even if they're just enjoying a glass of white wine with dinner on a Wednesday night. The host with the most in your life is sure to say 🎵 Gimme Gimme Gimme 🎵 immediately upon opening it up.

The round disco ball  bucket filled with ice and a bottle of champagne

9. 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.

10. A gift subscription to KiwiCo if you don't know what to give the baby, kid, teen (or even grownup) in your life. Choose from a wide variety of boxes to tailor your gift based on their age or interests — it's the gift that keeps on giving!

17. A Colgate 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"

18. The Shark Tank-famous Comfy, a wearable sweatshirt-blanket hybrid for the person you know who is always running cold. Microfiber fleece on the outside, sherpa fluff on the inside, a truly gigantic pocket (for snacks!!), an oversized hood, and a slouchier-than-slouchy fit...what more can they ask for?!

19. A 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

20. A miniature greenhouse DIY kit that'll keep the crafter in your life busy — this baby is intricate, requires a variety of skills, and even has a battery-powered LED light for a fancy final look. This'll look gorgeous on a bookshelf when complete!

21. A 14-karat solid gold pendant with diamonds in the shape of their zodiac sign's constellation for a gift that was ~written in the stars~ and feels oh-so personal.

All of the different constellation pendants

22. Or a book dedicated to their sign if they text you a screenshot of their CoStar daily horoscope each and every day (@ my group text). How can they be so vague and yet such a personal attack?!

The books, with foil titles of the zodiac signs plus colorful illustration representing the sign, each book in a different color

23. A *15*-tool Leatherman 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 tool

24. An Always Pan (psst: it's currently on sale — the lowest price ever!) designed to do the work of EIGHT pieces of regular old cookware. Whether your giftee is already great at cooking or seems to burn everything, this is a great (and pretty) addition to any kitchen, thanks to the nontoxic nonstick surface that makes for very easy cleanup.

25. 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.

26. 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

27. A chicken nugget-shaped AirPod case...because duh. Want a gift you can guarantee no one else will get them? Here you go.

The game with cards and vote button tokens

29. A tongue-in-cheek succulent planter anyone who's been trying to cultivate their green thumb will understand. You've gotten a lot of plants over the years — will this one make it? 🙏

30. A Revlon one-step drying brush with a unique oval-shaped barrel 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.

31. A pair of plain or rhinestone-accented safety pin earrings that are the perfect combination of cool and impossibly pretty.

32. An ~immersive~ LED backlight for their TV that brings the colors on the screen into the room for a truly riveting viewing experience. It senses the colors on the screen in real time, and they can even hook it up to Google Home or Alexa for voice control!

33. Fantastic Cities, a wanderlust-themed coloring book featuring both real and imagined cities to while away the time before their next trip.

The cover of the coloring book

34. An extra large skull ice cube mold for the ~coolest~ drink of all time — and like a "king cube," you only need one per glass!

35. 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.

36. A Pop-Up Guide To Hogwarts for a three-dimensional look at the castle that's *almost* as cool as the Marauder's Map.

38. A Rifle Paper Co. recipe card box (with recipe cards) for the person who has been begging you for the secret ingredient to that one famous dish you make. Make the ~extra special~ gift that recipe, and with such a pretty floral tin and cards, you don't even need to wrap it!

39. Listography One List A Day, a journal with (you guessed it) one fun list per day — they can fill it out with their answers on the same date for the next three years, then look back on how their thoughts on everything from favorite childhood movies to their personal goals to things that make them laugh have changed.

40. A gift kit of Glow Recipe's bestsellers for the beauty enthusiast who would love to try the latest and greatest TikTok skincare faves (like *the* Watermelon Dew Drops that'll have their skin glowing in no time flat).

The gift box

41. A beyond-classic leather moto jacket with gold accents that they'll cherish for years (and years and years) to come, because this look *never* goes out of style and goes with absolutely *everything*.

42. A Facetory sheet mask subscription box for the gift of relaxation and a little me time *AND* wow-I-didn't-know-my-skin-could-feel-this-good hydration.
