They range from a tapered wand (.35-.7 inches) to a 1.25 inch clamped curling iron so your S.O. can customize their look without waiting for different tools to heat up.


    They have adjustable temperatures, and heat up in just 30 SECONDS so you BOTH can get out the door faster.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (also available in black).

    Promising review: "New favorite curling iron. I LOVE this curling iron! Such a great value for 6 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

    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.

    2. A macrame hanging shelf so they can display the plants they struggle to keep alive... or their fave tchotchkes... or their prettiest beauty products... in the most stylish way possible.

    The wooden shelf hanging from white macrame and a tassel underneath

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    Promising review: "This looks as photographed and is exactly what I was looking for. I LOVE It! Sooo cool. Beats just a hanging plant. You can have a plant, stones, and a basket. It is like a cool floating shelf." —CD125

    3. A faux fur blanket with two sides — one fleece, one furry — so they can customize their heat level while cuddling. Whether your S.O. is someone who freezes all day but still wants something chic or you're looking for a cozy way to get a little closer during your Netflix binges, this blanket is the ticket.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in five sizes and 21 colors)

    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

    Check out all the deets and reviews from people who can't stop raving about this blanket in This Impossibly Cozy Blanket Is Everything You Need This Winter.

    4. A selection of McConnell's ice creams (I am very partial to the "chocolate-covered strawberry" flavor, which is perfect for V Day).


    Attention ice cream manufacturers!! Make strawberry chocolate chip ice cream!! I tried this ice cream recently (all the flavors were excellent) but the chocolate covered strawberry, aka sweet cream and strawberry preserve ice cream with flecks of chocolate, was next level. It basically tastes exactly like a choc-cov strawb, but in frozen, creamy form.

    Get them from McConnell's Ice Cream for $12 each.

    McConnell's is a third-generation family-run (over 70 years!) ice cream shop in Santa Barbara, California, making all their flavors from scratch using milk from local, grass-grazed cows. Even the mix-ins (like the above strawberry preserves) are from scratch.

    5. 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, you'll both want to keep it on display.

    The white cotton knit blanket on a sofa

    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. 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). I *love* it, and it's actually extremely cute, looking like a regular old fancy blanket! It's heavy, but still I take it from bed to couch and back to bed all the time as I WFH. It doesn't overheat on the couch (thanks to the fabric and the "holes" in the large knit), but provides a pleasant weight as I watch TV or work. And when it's layered over my duvet, it keeps me extra cozy and warm.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249+ (available in three weights and nine colors).

    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.

    Bearaby is a woman-owned brand making weighted blankets in sustainable materials. Free shipping takes 6-10 days, and "faster" shipping takes 2-5, but if you're running low on time, you can also get a gift card for the exact value of a blanket.

    6. A Facetory sheet mask subscription box for the gift of relaxation & a little me time *AND* wow-I-didn't-know-my-skin-could-feel-this-good hydration. The couple that face-masks together, stays together.

    The set of seven sheet masks

    Promising review: "It's fun to try out new masks that a well-reviewed by experts (I'm definitely no expert), and I love the subscription model! This weekly face mask tradition has helped banish the Sunday scaries this fall/winter." —Emily Berglund

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

    The two glasses

    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.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $22.99.

    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

    8. And 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!


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

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (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

    9. 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.

    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.

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $24.97.

    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

    11. A trio of mini Pat McGrath MatteTrance lipsticks for your favorite makeup enthusiast 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.

    Get the set of three from Sephora for $25 (valued at $45).

    These are our pick for best $$$ matte lipstick on BuzzFeed Reviews too!

    Promising review: "These mini lippies are absolutely stunning!!!! The colors are very vibrant and bold! The red color is a gorgeous Christmas cherry color and the dark purple shade is a gorgeous bold purple plum color. They apply to your lips smoothly. Now if you have dry lips, I would apply a lip moisturizer first or balm. The finish is a velvety matte finish and it does not feel drying on my lips!! They are pretty small for the price but I feel that they are worth it with the discount! I just wish these came in full sizes!!! I am obsessed with the packaging!!!!" —China1990

    12. Music Listography, a twist on a journal that'll encourage users to create lists to document their favorite albums, concerts they wish they could travel back in time to, songs they think are about them (big Main Character energy), and so much more.

    13. An air fryer (from the makers of the INSTANT POT!!) so they can crisp up leftovers, make homemade versions of their favorite fried foods (without having to deal with hot oil), and more.

    Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

    Here's what BuzzFeed Food writer Hannah Lowentheil has to say: "Friends of mine were raving about their new Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer, so after reading similar feedback on Amazon, I decided it looked like a winner. And it happens to be made by the same company that makes the crowd-favorite Instant Pot. I figured I would be using this appliance primarily as air air fryer, but as an added bonus, it can also roast, broil, bake, re-heat, and dehydrate food. It preheats quickly, it's large enough to a good amount of food at once, it's easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I've been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night and it makes them taste so good. If you're cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don't get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don't mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there's no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn't believe I made this at home!!"

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    Check out the full review, plus some air fryer recipe suggestions for more!

    Get it from Artifact Uprising for $69+ (available in six sizes and 11 colors).

    Promising review: "Blown away! We had so many choices of which company to entrust the photos from our amazing Mediterranean vacation. Saw the ad on Instagram for Artifact Uprising and I’m so glad I spent the money. It was a little more expensive than others and SO worth it. We can’t stop looking at the book. I’ve been a professional graphic designer for 17 years and have handled many printing projects and I was just floored by the quality of the product. Thank you!" —David T.

    These bbs are ready to ship in just three days.

    15. A braided headband with pearls that made me go full 😍😍😍 when I saw it, and I know will make your hair accessory enthusiast friend do the same when they unwrap it.

    16. 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

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

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

    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

    17. Ranch: An Ode to America’s Beloved Sauce in 60 Mouth-Watering Recipes, a cookbook for anyone who thinks that one specific dressing reigns king when it comes to flavor, even if you feel the opposite.

    Uncommon Goods

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $85 each or the pair for $170.

    Promising review: "My daughter and I can keep in touch everyday. When she sees her lamp lit she knows I am thinking of her and vice versa. Perfect gift for those that are apart and have busy school/work schedules. You are 'keeping in touch' even when you don't have time or energy for a text, phone call or email. It's a perfect gift and a wonderful idea." —GFD

    20. A stylish acrylic block and set of sleek black knives, because this'll really dress up their kitchen — and the bonus is they actually are really great knives too! If your couple compromise is often between style + function, these are perfect for you two.


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

    Get them from Amazon for $49.99 (also available in a smaller, five-knife set).

    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

    21. A dainty 14K gold–plated necklace with cubic zirconia in the shape of their zodiac sign's constellation. Your SO and this necklace? A pairing written in the stars.

    Get it from Amazon for $52 (available in all 12 zodiac signs).

    Get it from Amazon for $95.99 (available in two colors; the green may arrive after Christmas).

    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

    23. 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.

    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.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.70.

    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

    25. Individual or multiple satin scrunchies ranging in sizes from mini to XL so they can choose the size of their fashion statement (while keeping their hair back and protected). If SatC was on today, Carrie and Berger would not get in a fight about these.

    The set of DVDs

    Get it from Amazon for $64.73.

    Promising review: "A friend lent me his copy of the first movie with the making-of DVDs and I was gobsmacked, so I ordered my own set immediately. The movies are beautifully done and the behind the scenes documentaries alone are worth the purchase price. One by one I am introducing them to other members of my family. I think it is interesting to note that one of my grandsons has developed an interest in art as a result of viewing the behind the scenes documentaries. Frodo Lives!" —Trivia Queen

    27. A set of laboratory-style shot glasses to truly make drinking a science. Experimenting with different kinds of tequila? Perfect.

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $19.98.

    Promising review: "Such a cute addition to any bar cart — especially for someone with an interest in chemistry! The etching/printing on the glass is clear and quality. I would probably hand wash just to avoid it coming off in the dishwasher but so far so good!" —Cait

    28. A cozy mermaid tail blanket so they can live our their ~fantasy~, aka when you ask them to do something, they can say, "I can't get up — does this look like the ocean to you?!"

    A model in the purple tail-shaped blanket

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in three sizes and 16 colors).

    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

    29. A vintagey 8-in-1 entertainment center that'll do it all: play records, stream music from their phone via Bluetooth, record from vinyl, CD, or cassette directly to USB, AND play CDs, cassettes, aaaaand AM/FM radio. Whether you're slow dancing across the living room together (swoon) or they're singing at the top of their lungs while you're wearing earplugs, they'll loove it.

    The retro music system with a hinged top record player

    Get it from Amazon for $138.37+ (available in five colors).

    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

    30. A wireless karaoke microphone that'll bring the party wherever they go — it's compatible with any smartphone or tablet and can jam for up to *10 hours* on a single charge. That's a lot of "Total Eclipse of the Hearts" on repeat.

    A reviewer holding the red microphone

    It can also connect to their device via cable.

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (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

    Check out our closer look at this karaoke mic for more info.

    31. A foldable exercise bike with all the basic features they need if they don't have space (and you don't have the budget) for a Peloton but want access to a quick cardio workout at home. It has a magnetic tension system to up the difficulty, and handy features on the screen so you can track your time, speed, distance, and more!

    The silvery bike, with text "Men's Health editor's choice" larger seat cushion, 300 pound extended weight capacity

    Ok an exercise bike might not be a romantic gift for ~everyone~ (that one Peloton commercial much?) but if having an easy way to work out at home *is* on your loved one's list, this bb is a great choice.

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    Promising review: "The day I put a COVID-19 suspension on my gym membership, I researched affordable, maneuverable exercise bikes lest my knees get painful for lack of this daily exercise! It arrived in a large box (40 lbs) but this 70-year-old gal was able to easily drag into my house and unpack. The directions are a little hard to follow and I’m not 'handy' but I was able to add a little reasoning and put it together in less than an hour. Now sheltering in place for two weeks, this bike starts my day each morning. The mechanics and electronics work perfectly and help me set goals each day. It has variable tension settings, seat height options and a seat position for tall and for shorter people. I’m 5-foot-6 and selected the setting for a taller person. The seat height is on the fourth hole so you could drop for shorter biker. I have biked and binge-watched series, biked and worked off creeping anxiety as I watch the news and rolled it onto the deck on an unseasonably warm day to peddle to Led Zeppelin on my headphones. BEST purchase for the money that I’ve made in years; it’s a solid investment in both my physical and mental health!" —SG

    I bought this bike just as the pandemic was starting last spring, and it was a *great* choice. I put it together in nooooo time flat, with the help of a handy YouTube video (as suggested by one of the reviewers). And the fold-up size is great, but the bike is sturdy and has great features for the price! I love the cushioned seat, which is muuuuuch comfier than most exercise bike seats I've sat on. My parents bought one after I did, and they're both pedaling away all the time.

    32. Acrylic drop earrings for a statement look that won't hang heavy from their lobes. They come in tons of colors and styles so you can find the perfect pair for your partner or your most stylish galentine.

    The earrings, with gold wire hooks and half-moon multicolor resin hanging from them

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in eight colors).

    Promising review: "Great purchase! So lightweight that I don’t even realize I’m wearing earrings! I’ve seen these around a lot and I’m so glad I found them on Amazon. Must have and great for the price. Loving the white color." —Marisa S

    33. A trio of spicy sauces (honey, maple syrup and gochujang sriracha) they'll want to drizzle on *everything* — think roasted veggies, pizza, and cocktail glass rims. Y U M. And YOU'll reap all the benefits.

    Bushwick Kitchen

    One reviewer bought this for a Valentine's Day gift, and their partner already requested a bottle of the Spicy Maple.

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $44.99 (or the individual sauces for $10.99 each), or individually from Bushwick Kitchen.

    Bushwick Kitchen is a small business hand-making delicious sauces (with locally sourced ingredients) right in Brooklyn, NY.

    34. Paris Street Style, a coloring book filled with patterns, flat lays, outfits, hair styles, street scenes and more inspired by Paris and Parisian style that'll make anyone say "Ooh la la!"

    The cover of the book

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95 or from Bookshop for $14.72 (available on backorder).

    35. A pair of Beats Solo 3 wireless headphones so they can work out, get a snack, or ignore text messages from you while listening to their favorite playlist — all without being ~tied down~.

    The headphones in black with text "designed for sound. tuned for emotion"

    I have these and use them just about every day at work — I like that they don't overheat my ears, and sometimes I forget I'm in an open floor plan and just jam out with some ridiculous head-bobbing dancing.

    Get them from Amazon for $139+ (available in nine colors).

    Promising review: "These headphones are amazing! The sound is great and clear, they get loud, noise canceling when music is playing, basically noise canceling even when music isn’t playing. They are comfortable except after a few hours of constant use they start to hurt your ears but that is like any over ear headphones. The battery life also lasts soooo long, they are great headphones, I definitely recommend!" —Dixie Freeman

    These also won best $$$ wireless headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    36. A DIY embroidery kit so they can bring out their ~crafty~ side, one thread at a time.

    The kit, which looks like three hanging plants when finished

    It comes with an embroidery hoop, thread, cotton aida with the pattern on it, needles, and instructions.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Promising review: "Love it! This is one of those rare occasions in life where I feel like I got MORE than what I paid for. This kit is just about perfect. The only thing I would recommend you purchase in addition to it is either better needles, or a good needle threader. The eyes of the needles it comes with are a bit too small to thread three embroidery strands through, in my opinion. Otherwise, the kit is awesome. If you’re wondering, I didn’t embroider mine exactly as per the instructions. I had plenty of thread, but it does warn you that if you go rogue, you could run short." —Addictedtoammmazzzon

    37. A PhoneSoap sanitizer to kill 99.9% of germs on the toilet seat that is their phone (watching TikToks while pooping isn't always the move). It fits almost all phone sizes, 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

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in seven colors).

    38. A subscription to Book of the Month, because they deserve to be treated to a new pick every month, selected from an array of shouldn't-be-missed new releases.

    A model holding five books: The Perfect Mother, The Mans Room, Still Lives, How To Walk Away, and Small Country

    Each month they can choose from five available titles — plus, they can always get more books or even skip a month if none of the options sound like the right fit!

    Give Book of the Month for $49.99+ available in 3-, 6-, and 12-month subscriptions — and add any extra books on for $9.99 each! This also makes a perfect *very* last minute gift, thanks to their print-at-home gift card and email gift card options.

    39. 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?

    The black claw-like shredders and a piece of meat

    If you don't we're talking about 24 Easy Meals You Can Make With Rotisserie Chicken.

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in four colors).

    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

    40. A Drunk Elephant "Glowy the Night" gift set for a full nighttime skincare routine to help them get their most luminous skin yet. They'll be pretending to create TikToks every time they use these.

    The kit

    —T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Night Serum, an AHA/BHA serum for gentle resurfacing

    —E-Rase™ Milki Micellar Water, a no-rinse cleanser with ceramides in the formula

    —Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream, a ceramide-infused moisturizer to hydrate and improve the skin's barrier

    —F-Balm™ Electrolyte Waterfacial, a cooling and hydrating overnight mask

    —plus a compact mirror!

    Get it from Sephora for $98 (valued at $146).

    Promising review: "A great deal for great products. The packaging is beautiful. TLC Framboos (and all the DE Serums) have truly transformed my skin. I used to have bumps deep underneath my skin, breakouts and oily skin - now my skin is clear, bright and balanced." —PinkGiraffeX

    41. A velvety pajama set, because you shouldn't ~sleep on~ luxurious gifts that'll look like you splurged. It's like when Walter Hobbs opens Buddy's gift in Elf, but they'll actually like it.

    A reviewer in the green velvet tank and shorts set with black lace

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and five colors).Or try a similar (non-velvet) lace set that goes up to 4X from Amazon for $22.86.

    Promising review: "I was super nervous about purchasing, because I know pictures can sometimes be deceiving. It looks just like the photo, so glad I bought it! Wasn’t sure if medium would fit me, but you can wear the bottoms high rise (no adjustable pull strings) & the top has adjustable straps. Overall, cutest pajama set I’ve ever seen, satisfied & will definitely be purchasing more in the future." —Luna Contreras
