37 Gifts To Make Them Feel Like A Real Life Inspector Gadget

Go go gadget rainbow maker, bed cooler, therapy lamp...you get the idea.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year 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. A rainbow maker pieced together with visible cogs, screws, and a pretty prism that they can place in front of a window to create some club-worthy DIY lighting...in the middle of the afternoon.

2. A microneedle derma roller that uses the same system as professional microneedling (utilizing a bunch of tiny, controlled pinpoints to stimulating the body's natural healing response). This may firm up skin and shrink pores while helping the products they already own absorb easier and thus, work better.

3. A pair of long-distance touch bracelets you can pair with Bluetooth so they'll light up when touched, to let your long-distance love know you're thinking of them in a way that'll totally brighten their day.

4. A chiliPAD bed cooler to make one or both sides of the bed cold from the bottom up, so the human heater you sleep beside can finally sleep as cold as they want (even with the covers on).

5. A Vitamix immersion blender because soup season is upon us aaaand if you give this to the home chef in your life you MIGHT get some sensational dinners from it. Just be sure to help with the prep work.

6. An Airfly wireless transmitter that'll connect their AirPods (or any wireless headphones) to things like airplane seats, no Bluetooth needed!!

7. A 10-motor massage mat — the lumbar area heats up to 140 degrees in less than eight minutes and it has three vibration intensity levels to choose from. This is the perfect gadget to get anyone who thinks you're a (lovable) pain in the neck.

8. A diamond neck roller — a spiffy beauty tool for folks who are on a ~roll~ with their new beauty routine. Throw all those splurge-worthy skincare bits in my stocking, thanks.

9. A bidet because your mom has a strict "no potty humor" rule when everyone visits for the holidays. Finding a gift that's gonna say it for you is *chef's kiss* perfection.

10. A rechargeable light necklace they can toss on their dog to give them some peace of mind while walking around at night. This thing is especially useful if they play fetch when it's dark, or if their dog loves running around at night. There's a reason this thing has ~glowing~ reviews!

11. A Tchibo bean-to-brew single-serve coffee maker — an eco-friendly gift for coffee consumers who want a luxe roasted brew (without a bit of climate change guilt). Single-use pods are a thing of the past, people!

12. A vibrating facial brush — an exfoliating skincare tool that'll take a basic bath to the next level. I own this thing and IMHO, I'm pretty confident this would ~vibe~ with just about everyone.

13. A pair of aerating wineglasses – they're really and truly gonna improve the taste of the cheap wine you and your BFF gulp down on all your The Bachelorette viewing nights.

14. An eye massager — it may help ease migraines and act as a source of stress relief for anyone whose tension is not just a weight on their shoulders.

15. An AeroGarden that'll be a fool-proof way to grow fresh herbs outside of a garden and inside their fifth-floor walk-up.

16. A portable ice cube maker so your roommate can have all the ice they want, without needing to remember to fill the ice cube trays ever again (which means you, finally, will get some ice). Passive-aggressive presents are worth their weight in gold!

17. A Roomba 614 — the robot vacuum that uses a three-stage cleaning system to pull dirt from both carpets and hard-surface floors. It has brushes for cleaning edges and corners, sensors that help it navigate under furniture, and a smart cleaning system that deep cleans high-traffic areas in the home. You're gonna win family gift-giving in one clean sweep!

18. A ball launcher for making sure your grandpa's dog (and your grandpa's rotator cuff) enjoy their days at the dog park.

19. A solar-powered charging bank to give avid hikers who love going on outdoor adventures almost as much as they love posting about them on Instagram.

20. A therapy lamp that'll let summer-lovers soak in some "sun" no matter how dreary the weather is outside.

21. A handheld mixer to save them a bundle when they stop spending their hard-earned money at coffee shops and can enjoy their favorite, frothy brew from comfort of their kitchen counter instead.

22. An Apple Magic Keyboard designed with quick scrolling, document navigation, full-sized arrows, and increased stability in the keys, so they'll be able to work (and, more importantly, game) with ease.

23. An adjustable baby carriage that's gonna help your younger sibling see that strolling around with a colicy newborn, fidgety baby, and active toddler can still be a walk in the park. Um, sort of.

24. A Dyson blow-dryer so well-made, it's sure to prove it's not just a bunch of hot air.

25. A portable projector — this thing can project a 150-inch DLP picture and *somehow* also has powerful speakers built into its tiny frame. Get this for your kids or partner and your family movie nights are gonna a big hit, huge.

26. A 3D effect essential oil diffusing LED light that's waterless and changes into seven different colors, so you know it'll go with their decor (no matter what they've done to their place lately).

27. A runaway alarm clock – it plays music and runs around the bedroom until someone grabs it. This thing is sure to have your kid up and ~on a roll~ in plenty of time for homeschool to start.

28. A tug-of-war toy for your pupper that'll suction cup to your floor, giving you the gift of alone time when Spot doesn't want to stop playing.

29. And a strategy game to help your pet stay entertained and engaged during the day by working to get their meals. They are little hunters, after all!

30. An electric bubble massage mat that's waterproof and has a built-in heater for some truly spa-level soaks. It even has an aroma clip for essential oil aromatherapy!

31. A gadget-filled office chair with adjustable lumbar support, a heating feature, AND MASSAGE SETTINGS. Even though a chair might not feel like a gadgety gift, once they see all the un-chair-acteristically cool things this does, they'll totally get it. And love it.

32. A spiffy smartphone printer — it's gonna send your grandfather over the moon when he is able to get physical prints of the 427 photos he took at your kiddo's kindergarten graduation last year.

33. A Furbo for pet parents who hate leaving their little one at home. Get this for easing their separation anxiety — it allows them to throw treats, talk, and look in on their pupper any time of day.

34. A silicone egg cup — this'll be an, excuse me, egg-cellent gift for your BFF if you've both missed your brunch dates dearly.

35. A moisture meter they can place deep down into the soil to know exactly how much water their plant is getting. Specifically, the plant you gave them on their birthday that *you* would very much like to see alive the next time you visit.

36. A USB cord bracelet for those people in our lives (you know who you are) who always seems to need a charge at a moment's notice.

37. And finally, a pair of color-changing LED faucet lights that'll light up their life every time they turn on their water. Need a gift that'll convince your kids to wash their hands more often? Have I got a ~bright~ idea for you.
