    35 Gifts To Give For No Reason Other Than To Show Someone You Care About Them

    A cottagecore stamp set, fresh goat milk soap, disco ball decor, and 28 other "just because" gifts for those we care about year-round.

    1. The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook, a drool-worthy cookbook with darling photographs of Disney treat dupes for your favorite Disney adult. Being able to snack on a dole whip from the comfort of their kitchen? That's magic.

    2. A pressed floral bookmark – a beautiful gift to give the avid reader in your life, who you totally know is dog-earring books in secret. They're sure to remember to use a bookmark once they have one this unforgettable!

    3. A fun-sized skincare kit filled with magical lotions and potions their bod is gonna love.

    4. Bespoke Post's Suite box with Grown Alchemist soap and lotion, two plush hand towels, a bathroom tray, and Palo Santos sticks. Grab this hotel-worthy set and they're gonna come up with excuses to wash their hands.

    5. A disco ball that'll bounce light all around their room if the Swifty you love is still deep into Folklore and needs a "Mirrorball" IRL.

    6. A bar of goat milk soap for folks who really and truly prefer washing and shaving with bar soap (there's no packaging more eco-friendly than no packaging!), but still need lotsa moisture on their sensitive skin. This goat's milk soap is rich with lactic acid, vitamins A, B6, B12, C, E, and calcium, potassium, magnesium, and selenium. YUM.

    7. A personalized star chart book with 70 pages full of what the stars say about the astrology lover you live with.

    8. A tobacco and patchouli candle in an amber apothecary jar that's waaay too pretty to be this price. Snag this steal of a deal and give their bookshelves something to brag about.

    9. A mystery jungle box with three itty bitty plant babies they can raise up to be their own. If your ~bud~ was sad to leave their backyard garden in suburbia for the city, this sweet gift will grow on them in no time!

    10. A neon light that's sure to help your college bestie's basement apartment look like the cheeky tiki bar they dream of owning someday. And let's be real, even a dark basement apartment is better than the dorm you shared (particularly once it has this in it).

    11. A strawberry (candy) and champagne box – it's gonna put a smile on your friend's face if you haven't enjoyed a boozy brunch together in far too long.

    12. A pack of six velvet wallet scrunchies, each with a secret zipper opening they can store small items in. Your sibling's ability to lose their house key is a family-known fact at this point. Hopefully this thoughtful (and fashionable) gift helps!

    13. A bag of Kickoff Coffee – a gift that finally makes sense to give the soccer fan you love. Because apparently the pigskin you gave them for their birthday was the wrong ball. You didn't realize they've been pronouncing it "fútbol" all this time!

    14. A 60-piece bundle of dried pampas grass that'll look lovely on display in their home all year long! Dried florals never wilt, just like (excuse the overzealous romance) your love for them.

    15. A deck of cat or tat tarot cards – they're gonna let your mystical boo know they really, ahem, played their cards right when first they asked you out.

    16. A 3D daffodil paper bouquet perfect for Mother's Day, Father's Day, or celebrating the every day. The bouquet packs flat and easily displays upright once opened. Get your loved one these long-lasting flowers so they know you're still thinking of them far after a regular bouquet would have wilted away.

    17. Or grab a Flower Box filled with 100 different floral postcards so you can send some sweet snail mail to everyone you can think of. There's something extra special about getting a card in the mail – pen pals shouldn't just be a thing of the past!

    18. A unnecessarily lovely bottle of Jot coffee concentrate sure to be a fun addition to any coffee fan's growing bean and brew collection. The bottle is rad and the packaging is so beautiful this is sure to feel like a luxurious gift.

    19. A love language card game – it's gonna be a fun way to spend date nights at home, while teaching you both how best to show your love to each other.

    20. A set of three mini barrettes Gen-Zers can give their millennial relatives to teach their perma cowlicks that they are ~middle part~ people now!

    21. A hot sauce trio – a great gift for spicing up date night even when you're staying indoors. Bingeing Netflix is still the ~hot~ thing to do these days, which is fine by me!

    22. A seven-piece stamp set with vintage floral and specimen jar designs – this darling gift is sure to encourage your artistic friends to play around with an old-school medium you personally love. Anyone else still scrapbooking out there?

    29. A 1-pound bag of marshmallow cereal – a funny and fun gift they'll certainly appreciate when life feels dull and marsh-mellow.

    30. A shower speaker to give anyone who thinks shaving is more successful while listening to smooth jazz. Or Slayer. You know them better than I do.

    34. A King Friday oven mitt that's gonna remind your responsible sibling they can still play with their food, even if they're getting a law degree. Mr. Rogers would totally approve.
