    1. A decorative jar so you can add a supportive (if slightly more sophisticated) touch to your rather rustic friend's growing mason jar collection.


    Promising review: "This is amazing. I love this jar and the cool ball top. It is too great!" —Val

    Price: $18.99

    2. A compact wood alarm clock that'll keep the lovable blockhead in your life from forgetting to wake up for class...again.


    The face displayed uses an LED light that has four brightness settings and three alarm options. It can show the time, date, and temperature. This can either be battery powered with three AAA batteries or powered using an AC adapter.

    Promising review: "I love the size and design of this clock. It is very well made. I like the wood design. I only wanted to use it because my new cable box does not have a clock. I had no problems setting the time and I like that it is battery operated. I have it on the low setting and it is bright enough to clearly see across the room (about 15 feet). I couldn't have made a better choice!" —Deborah Loy

    Price: $13.86 (available in two colors)

    3. A set of four trinket dishes so the knickknack collector in your life can keep their tiniest treasures in a safe and stylish spot.


    Gimme all the porcelain babies!

    Promising review: "This tray is cute, modern, durable, and is a great compliment to many rooms in my home. I find that having four individual trays is convenient, and I also like that I can combine them together if I do not need to have everything separate. Having the ability to customize the pieces is handy for creativity, as well as complimenting the space I want to use them in. I sometimes have random trinkets that quickly clutter up a space and this tray is a great way to visually add division and organization." —Kimhoay

    Price: $9.78

    4. A cotton or eucalyptus farmhouse wreath sure to add a cozy, festive touch to your holiday-holic BFF's door no matter what holiday is on its way. Arbor Day is only four months away, after all!


    Promising review: (for the cotton) "This is so cool. When they say real cotton, they mean real cotton. I have never had one like this. These are real cotton balls with the shell and everything. I'm just curious how they preserve this. It doesn't look like it's going to fall apart or anything. They are holding together pretty well. We're not going to have snow in Los Angeles but we'll have something white on the door. This is cool." —Patricia L.

    Promising review: (for the eucalyptus) "I love this wreath! I needed a wreath for my door and this was great. It required a little fluffing out of the box to get the leaves positioned correctly, but looks amazing on my front door! It's not too big, but not too small." —Melissa N. Jones

    Price: $19.99+ (cotton, available in three sizes) and $29.99 (eucalyptus)

    5. A wall mounted rainy pot – a gift that's gonna help your summer-lovin' surfer see that even dreary weather has a darling side.


    Promising review: "I have purchased several sets of these. I have them hanging in my office and have referred friends to this link and they have purchased the set too. Great present for teachers!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $21.99

    6. A transparent LED desk lamp that's ~clearly~ gonna help improve your student's study sessions, simply because they won't wanna leave their desk when it has decor this cool!

    Promising review: "This is so awesome. It looks just as it's pictured. I'm very happy and would highly recommend this!" —AMH

    Price: $109 (available in seven colors)

    7. A pair of dyed agate bookends, because the perfect ge-ode to an avid reader's favorite novels is gonna be displaying them in a way that really *ahem* rocks.


    Promising review: "Okay. The ones I got are nearly perfectly matched and have beautiful markings. The pieces are beautiful and I am pleased with the purchase. I wanted to add a poop of color with something my dumb cat can't knock off and shatter." —Jeanqua

    Price: $23.99+ (available in two sizes and five colors)

    8. A porcelain diffuser – a "gift" for your shared apartment. Or more specifically, for those times when you wolf down a bean and cheese burrito and need to cleanse the scent of *yourself* out of the room before your partner gets back.


    This uses ultrasonic vibrations, not heat, to create steam. You can set it on a continuous three hour setting or have it set in seven hour intervals. Be sure to grab a pack of aromatherapy oils so you can use it right away!

    Promising review: "This is elegant and practical. It's very classy looking and goes great with the decor in my house — it’s white, stone, and somewhat discreet. It was very easy to set up and my favorite feature about this whole thing, aside from the looks, is that it is very quiet! Great purchase!" —Tambra Riddle

    Price: $82.95 (available in four colors)

    9. A plush bean bag chair that'll be the squishiest statement piece they've ever seen and be loved by adults and children alike.


    Promising review: "The bean bag is wonderful. The bean bag was a bit firm to start with so we took out some beads. The bag is good quality and my daughter loves it! This is adorable and fun." —C. Warford

    Price: $49.98+ (available in nine styles)

    10. A Stagg pour-over kettle so you can give your delightfully snobby friend a gift they can't help but applaud.


    Promising review: "I bought this kettle over a year ago and typically use it on the weekends. The kettle is beautiful, we get so many compliments on the look of it. We use a gas range to heat the kettle and also have the black plastic handle, and it is still in mint condition. We have been so happy with this kettle that we are gifting it to friends and family now for christmases, housewarmings, etc. Thanks for a great product!" —Anders R.

    Price: $69+ (available in four colors)

    11. A vanity mirror with tiered accessory trays, because your mom deserves some beautiful decor that multi-tasks as well as she does.


    Promising review: "I really like this product. I use it on my vanity as a face mirror when I am getting ready and it also holds little makeup items, jewelry, and other stuff. It's a very solid material and I think it looks very chic. A beautiful buy!" —JJ

    Price: $34.99

    12. A pair of rainbow drip candles they can put inside a vase, wine bottle, or candle holder. These colorful candles will brighten up their room even better than the flame they light 'em with!


    Promising review: "These have to be the coolest thing I have ever purchased. I have them in an empty wine bottle. I will be buying many more to cover the entire bottle in wax." —Bre

    Price: $6.98

    13. A cool gel memory foam pillow that absorbs body heat and releases it from the other end of the pillow. Get this and your hot-headed S.O. is gonna be able to *literally* cool off at the end of a long day.


    I own this pillow and sleep on it every night! It's really heavy and stiff, so I'd highly recommend it to people with neck problems or anyone who likes solid support. The cooling effect is truly wild — I sleep hot and with this I feel a nice chill all night long. I even put it behind my back when I'm sitting on my sofa and need a fast way to cool off. It's fab. Get it in your life.

    Promising review: "I have been searching for a pillow that works for me and finally found it. I almost can't believe how perfect it is. The foam has ideal firmness, it supports my neck while allowing my head to sink in just right. I switch from back to side sleeping and the pillow accommodates both sleeping positions. The cool gel keeps the pillow from heating up so I don't want to flip it around like I do with most pillows. I highly recommend this pillow." —Julie

    Price: $25

    14. A handmade rib knit pouf for sprucing up their limited living room space with a unique and natural seating option.


    Promising review: "This is well made and so pretty. It is the perfect size and will go with just about any furniture preferences. It is firm and sturdy and I don't think it will flatten out, as so may pouf ottomans do. I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $74.29+ (available in three colors)

    15. A ceramic wall hook that's totally gonna make your friends say, "I've gotta ~hand~ it to you, your gifting game is on point."


    Promising review: "This is really beautiful! I was going to use it for towels in the bathroom. It holds them well enough but it's much too pretty to cover up! I like this for holding a phone." —Lyss3891

    Price: $29.99

    16. A pom pom throw so you can give them a soft gift that shows you appreciate them dealing with all your rough edges.


    Promising review: "This is an extremely soft blanket. The color is spot on. I gifted to my mom for Mother’s Day and she loved it. She loves how soft it is. It’s big enough to cover her body. This is a very comfortable blanket. I would love to order more if they come out with light grey or white." —Isis Cazares

    Price: $23.99 (available in eight colors)

    17. A faux fur accent piece that'll instantly enhance your BFF's living space no matter how messy they may be. They'll be able to throw this on the floor, a chair, a dirty laundry pile... BAM! Beautiful.


    Promising review: "This is so soft and very inexpensive (compared to most faux fur rugs). It's perfect for my office/sitting area. I got the 3x5 in white. It really makes the area stand out." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $17.99+ (available in eight colors, two styles, and seven sizes)

    18. A ceramic vase that'll certainly put a smile on their face!


    Promising review: "This is so lovely. I bought it to hold my dishwashing wand and little bottle brushes. They fit perfectly. It’s smallish, so you’d have to use smaller, shorter flowers to use this as an actual vase. But it’s a cute and interesting little decor piece as is. I just love it and found it even cuter in person." —M.M.

    Price: $16.99+ (available in four styles)

    19. A sleek indoor compost bin – it's gonna look great on their counter and help them start a New Year's resolution that's gonna help keep Mother Earth looking her best.


    Promising review: "This is totally amazing in every way. It has a textured, variegated surface that minimizes the look of dirt. It's not too big. It's just amazing. I love mine and I am SO SO glad I spent a little extra to get this one over a steel or ceramic alternative. One thing, it's not really as white as it looks in the photo... a bit more off white." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $39.99

    20. A colorful felted garland that's sure to make your most cheerful friend realize that, despite your love of all things dark and dreary, you really do know them. "I'm not sure I've ever ~felt~ so happy!" – what they'll say when you don't get them a book on morbid anatomy...again., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is great quality and has vibrant colors! I use this on my letterboard and love it! I have always ordered felt garlands on Etsy but the shipping time was hard to beat. This was exactly what I was looking for!" —Emily RME

    Price: $12.99

    21. A storage box that's sure to be a hit with your favorite makeup artist – their bathroom junk drawer will thank you.


    Promising review: "This thing looks amazing! It feels really sturdy and it included a lot of pearls, so even short brushes can be stored in it. What a beautiful way to keep your brushes at your finger tips!" —Lindsay Shelden

    Price: $19.99+ (available in two sizes)

    22. A rainbow utensil set for the most colorful person you know...silverware is so last century.


    This 24-piece set includes enough cutlery for six people; knives, forks, soup spoons, and dessert spoons.

    Promising review: "This is such a beautiful and unique silverware set. I purchased it for a friend who is obsessed with unicorns and will probably appreciate the design. The material is sturdy and the box makes the set look very elegant." —Adkins

    Price: $34.99

    23. A framed chalkboard they can have out to spruce up their deck, in their kitchen as some restaurant-worthy decor, or in their hall as an updated piece of art whenever some inspiration strikes.


    Promising review: "This was the perfect addition to my boy's adoption day. Everything about it was perfect. It's not too heavy and it's the perfect size and color. It will hang in our house forever." —Mdcone

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three styles and sizes)

    24. A magnetic lamp with "floating" orbs sure to look, ahem, amazeballs in their place.


    Promising review: "This lamp is so beautiful it is a piece of art itself. I put it in my family room and it changed the style for the entire room. I feel everything in the room has been upgraded. The light is soft and warm, it isn't to bright or dark and it makes the room feel cozy. It is so pretty it's also nice just as an art figure. Well done." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $60.95+ (available in four colors)

    25. An entryway mirror that'll do wonders on their walls. The minute they see how much elegance this adds, they'll vow to keep it around forever.

    Promising review: "I am in love with this mirror! It is very large and perfect for what I needed! It came packaged well and shipped pretty quickly! I love the modern look and love the price!" —Rachel H.

    Price: $50+ (available in eight colors and six sizes)

    26. A droplet vase so pretty, a flower would almost take away from it (which is great news if you know plants don't live long in their living room).


    Promising review: "Beautiful is an understatement! This is a must have for small and big apartments and homes. I’m even more pleased with some of the pottery in Now House than Adler's more expensive line — which I own a lot of!" —Ashley

    Price: $28

    27. A bread box so you can help their minuscule kitchen look organized and lovely without spending a ton of ~dough~.


    Promising review: "This is the cutest bread box ever! It's very well built, large enough for a pack of hamburger buns, a loaf of bread, and a half eaten bag of chips." —andsheleft

    Price: $25.99+ (available in seven colors)

    28. A trinket tray that'll have them ~reflecting~ on their favorite friend time and time again. It's you. You are that friend.

    Price: $13.99 (available in three colors)

    29. A blanket ladder that'll be a real ~step up~ in their space no matter where they put it. This'll work to hang towels in the bathroom, keep throw blankets organized in the living room, or in a bedroom to hang up outfits they plan on wearing the next day.


    Promising review: "This is perfect for my baby blankets! Wasn’t sure where to store them and then found this! Really a great saver on space and looks so cute in our nursery! The wood bar on top is such a cute touch. In all very satisfied with this purchase." —Taylor Blauvelt

    Price: $50+ (available in two colors)

    30. A wood hanging butterfly poster for maximalists who are ~bugged~ by bland walls.


    Promising review: "I loved it! It was better than I even expected. I bought it for my friend's nursery. It was easy to hang, affordable, and absolutely perfect." —Marylin McCutchen

    Price: $24.95

    31. A velvet throw pillow – it's gonna add a soft touch to the apartment they have hard time affording.


    Promising review: "I got these when we moved recently to add to some memory foam beanbags. The velvet is sooo soft and a bit stretchy. The color is lovely and very on trend (I got the dusty rose). I will definitely get more of these! These are good quality and a great accent in my living room!" —Natalie H.

    Price: $29.95+ (available in nine colors and two sizes)

    32. A tassel tablecloth that's sure to look elegant and lovely on the ancient kitchen table your S.O. can't seem to part with.


    Promising review: "I don’t normally write reviews, but I was pleased with this product and wanted to share. The quality is excellent. The material is thick and sturdy but lays nicely on a table. The color is neutral and light enough to brighten up the dark wood table but it’s not so neutral that it’s boring. The tassels are fun!" —Emily Quinn

    Price: $24.99 (available in four colors and six sizes)

    33. A small woven storage basket so they can keep their desk looking spic and span even if their preferred method of organizing is tossing things and running away.


    Promising review: "This woven bin is sturdy, thick, smooth, and nice quality. It stands up well and does not sag. It looks exactly as shown. I’m super happy with this purchase! I For once I got exactly what I wanted for a good price! I recommend this without hesitation. This was one of my best buys in ages!" —Anne D

    Price: $13.99+ (available in four styles)

    34. A neon light – a ~bright~ idea for anyone on your Christmas list.


    Promising review: "This looks perfect in my room. It looks exactly like the photos and I’m glad it will not break if I accidentally drop it. I have it plugged in a wall on my cube organizer." —Crystal

    Price: $12.89 (available in 19 styles)

    35. A brass metal planter to give gardeners who have both a green thumb and the Midas' touch.


    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for to hold a ten inch potted plant I had bought for our home office. Most stores seem to sell only plastic ones or are a lot more money if they are a nicer quality. I feel like I hit the jackpot with this one. The quality and price were both great. It's substantial enough to sit right on the floor itself, but light enough if you choose to put it on top of a plant stand." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $50

    36. Or an air plant frame they're gonna ~plant~ on their wall and never remove.


    Promising review: "This is a great quality frame. I made a mini living wall using moss and air plants and couldn’t be happier with it." —Jespree

    Price: $12.99+ (available in two sizes)

    37. An LED arch lamp that'll be way cooler than a gaudy table lamp and truly remind your boo that you're the ~light~ of their life.

    Price: $151.20 (available in two colors)

    38. A tissue box cover – a sentimental gift for anyone who gets teary-eyed when thinking about home.


    This works with square tissue boxes, be sure to grab ones that fit!

    Promising review: "I'm in a dorm room and wanted to keep my color scheme going throughout the room (white/blush/gold), and multi-colored tissue boxes can look chaotic in such a small space. It's cute and functional." —Rebecca

    Price: $5

    39. A planter bowl which, despite its small footprint and price, is sure to make a big ol' statement in their sleek place.


    Promising review: "This is a cute little planter. The finish is matte, which is great. It's lightweight and has a clean, modern look." —carolynne

    Price: $19.99

    40. A moon phase garland – an elegant piece of decor for your astrologically-minded love's life. A gift this thoughtful totally proves you're a Pisces.

    Price: $12.99+ (available in two colors and four sizes)

    41. An inexpensive reversible duvet set with a classic chevron side that perfectly complements the modern floral pattern opposite it, for anyone who loves flowers as much as they love a good grayscale.

    Price: $58.99+ (available in eight colors and three sizes)

    42. A natural wood end table – you ~wood~ be totally sad to miss out on giving your loved one a unique statement piece this striking. Better just go ahead and get it.


    Promising review: "I love our table!! I like the unfinished, rough texture it has. The actual color of the wood is a bit darker than in the pictures but I really like it. It's a small size but fits great for our studio apartment. No it did not come with assembly directions but it's easy to figure out. I did use a drill to put it together. It looks bespoke and rustic!" —AvidPurchaser

    Price: $69

    43. A bold bar cart that'll look ~wheely~ cool in their new place, even if it's momentarily the only furniture they actually have in it.


    Promising review: "This cart will hold 100 pounds per shelf! I don't have any items that come close to that weight that I put on the cart, but that gives you an idea of how sturdy and strong it is. The design is stylish and the frame is rust resistant. The wheels roll smoothly." —KK Schwartz

    Price: $119.99

    44. A lovely cat candle – it's gonna look so cool when they melt it, you're both gonna wish it had nine lives.


    Promising review: "The candle burned almost exactly as shown in the pictures. There was a little smoke that came off the metal when first exposed, but it quickly went away. There's no scent to the candle. It's been burning about 15 hours." —Richard Keker

    Price: $34 (available in six colors)

    45. A framed tropical canvas print sure to look great on you ~buds~ walls...actually, you just might need a matching one for yourself.


    Promising review: "I love these! I ordered two and they look great in my bathroom. They are simple and modern." —Kristi Bielewicz

    Price: $31.99

    46. An Instant Pot your favorite chef can basically replace their entire kitchen with. And then, you know, maybe make you something with it. Not that that's why you bought it or anything...of course not!


    This replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sauté, steam, warm, sterilize... and oh, it makes cakes too.

    Promising Review: I deliberated over buying one of these for so long (over a year). I regret all of this deliberation, because now that I have it, I'm not sure how I lived without it. Rice turns out perfectly every time. It's amazing. I push a button and walk away and end up with edible rice every single time. I love that this has so many uses in our combined vegetarian/omnivorous household. This Instant Pot produced the only pork dish that my husband has ever liked. I made an amazing vegan curry. I've made soy milk, almond milk, and cashew milk yogurts, and they've all been fantastic. I'll never 'boil' an egg any other way ever again. Eggs turn out perfectly every time and they are so easy to peel. Stop deliberating and buy this now!" —Laura

    Price: $59.86

    47. An adjustable desk lamp so they can brighten up any room in their home with a little bit of humor everyone can appreciate.


    Promising review: "This lamp is really great in any room. I love the comical understated look. It sort of blends in until you realize the lamp is a character! It was very easy to assemble, although it was a surprise to open up a box of sticks. No worries, in 10 minutes the lamp is up and running. I would love to get one for every member of my family, but I am keeping this one." —Dabby Babby

    Price: $52.99+ (available in two styles)

    48. And a hand-painted decor box that was clearly made for your funny best friend – no ifs, ands, or ~butts~ about it.


    Promising review: "I love it! It's high-quality, lighthearted, and useful!! That’s a triple-threat combo when it comes to home decor! I have two toilet paper rolls inside the box that are standard size and one on top that is a mega ultra roll. It still fits, I just prefer the look of the tower. This is useful, funny, sturdy, and trendy." —Mallory

    Price: $34.95
