Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A space pen that can write underwater, in extreme temperatures, in zero gravity, and at any angle — even upside down! This stocking stuffer is totally the ~write~ way to go, if I do say so myself.

2. A clever Samsung Frame for those who don't want quality wall space taken over by a big blank screen. With this, you'll be giving them a luxury television *and* a museumworthy piece of art at the same time.

3. A Bissell SpinWave Pet Robot with an interchangeable mop and vacuum — the type A in your life is gonna be ~floored~ that you actually got them something they will use. The confetti bomb last year wasn't as big a hit as you had hoped.

4. A nitro cold brew maker sure to make them espres-so excited about their daily cup (or, um, cups) of coffee.

5. A magnetic mask full of antioxidants and MAGIC. Even if your beloved seems to have every kind of lotion and potion around, this gift is gonna add some futuristic fun to their skincare routine.

6. An Echo Auto so they can have Alexa *in their car* letting them play music, check the news, add notes to their to-do lists, make calls, and more — all while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road.

7. A rechargeable LED dog collar for the friends who named their dog "Rocket" for a reason. With this on, walks around the neighborhood at night won't turn into an endless game of hide-and-seek.

8. 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.

11. A portable mini projector with LED lights that can provide a 1080p full HD "screen" wherever the heck your movie enthusiast decides it's time to throw on Moana.

12. 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.

13. A Revlon hot-air brush designed with open-ended vents for optimum air flow, taking wet, tangled, frizzy hair and turning it into a shiny, salon-style blowout in mere minutes.

14. A teaching alarm clock to help your children know when they're allowed to leave their room, giving you slightly more shut-eye in the a.m. Update the settings to your family's schedule and this lil' helper will light up when the kids are allowed to get up and out of bed.

15. A Cuisinart food processor is gonna ~cut~ their prep time in half...and then in half again! No longer will chopping onions spring tears from their eyes...they can throw that edible bulb in the processor! They may still end up crying, but with joy.

16. A pocket-sized Tile Mate — using their smartphone, this tracker "rings" to help find where they last left their purse, keys, wallet...basically whatever they hook it to! I can't even remember where I've left my coffee most days. Time to buy this.

20. A DIY neon-style sign kit with up to 9 feet of bendable light-up wire that'll be a ~bright~ spot on Christmas day when no one else figures out what to get the teenage "baby" of the family. YOU solved that problem. Good on ya!

21. Or a classic Tamagotchi so you can show them why it is that you can't figure out TikTok. THIS is the entertainment tech we had back in the day, and we loved it! ...And killed it. Often.
