11.A peach or smoky violet sweater you can get if you find shopping for people's pets far easier than shopping for, well, people.
12.A box of miracle fruit tablets — mind-boggling candies that'll make sour foods taste sweet. This is a fun family activity that'll never go ~sour~ (although technically the effects wear off after around 30 minutes).
13.A pom-pom throw so you can give people in your life a soft gift that shows you appreciate them dealing with all your rough edges.
15.A pack of unique Montessori wooden teether rings — you can leave them in a drawer and snag some when baby fever hits your friends and your life is officially filled with a new baby's birthday every few months.

19.Or a wineglass that screws right onto the bottle — this'll make sure there's no time wasted between wanting wine and guzzling it. I can practically hear your friends thanking you from here.
20.A giant gummy worm for when you need to ~worm~ your way back into your friend's good graces when you forget their birthday brunch.
