1. A pair of Hunter boots that'll keep your bestie's feet warm and toe-sty even when bad weather is coming their way.

amazon.com

Promising review: "These are worth every penny. I just mucked about in the biggest mud puddles outside my house, in the rain – I didn't slip or slide. I've used them in red clay and mud. They're comfy, well-built (of course), and I don't even need to walk carefully in them. Thank you, Midsomer Murders and every other BBC show I watch, for convincing me to throw out the cheap, decorative rain boots I had and go for the real deal. I totally get it now. I'm off to find some more mud." —mestayou

Shipping info: Free delivery and Christmas guarantee (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $74.39+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 14 colors).

2. A salt shooter you can give someone who would love nothing more than to hunt the world's most dangerous game, the pesky housefly. That...or use it to season their food in the most exciting way possible.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This salt gun is SO MUCH FUN! I hate flies so this is the perfect solution. It's like a Nerf gun but shoots salt instead. It's not too heavy to hold. However the pump is tough to pull back, which is perfect for an adult but difficult for kids. If you shoot yourself in the hands or arm, it stings a tiny bit but that's it. I Highly recommend it! Happy hunting!" —Q. Nguyen

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $44.95.

3. A Kindle Paperwhite sure to make reading so convenient, they just might find electronic books the ~write~ way to read from now on.

Amazon

Promising review: "I've owned and enjoyed most Amazon readers over the last 10 years and have never had any complaint with any of the devices. The last generation Kindle Paperwhite was a superior device, as was the Kindle Voyage. This Paperwhite seems to take the best of both and create a master device that exceeds the expectations for both. I've had my new Paperwhite for several weeks now and I've come to the conclusion that Amazon may have great difficulty finding a way to make it better next time. Is it really that good? I think it's nothing short of a masterpiece." —R. Dennis Hall

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Several strips of jerky individually wrapped in cone package
Amazon

This bouquet includes five sticks of buffalo, five hot venison, five mild venison, and five sticks of elk...that's 20 ounces of meat altogether!

Promising review: "This was a Valentine’s Day gift for my husband. It arrived on time, nicely packaged. He really liked it. This is the perfect gift for a man or woman who appreciates thoughtfulness and practicality. The meat sticks are delicious and are not just beef but four gourmet game meats. I would recommend this gift." —Fan Girl

Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

6. An adjustable stick figure floor lamp you can give your sibling so they aren't so lonely now that they've moved away from home. If you can't hide behind their door and scare them anymore, at least this lamp can!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Got exactly what I expected. Not a high-end, fancy fixture, but a nicely priced, fun lamp I could drop in a corner and add some lumens to my home office. Super easy to assemble. Came with extra bolts/washers/etc. and I LOVE that. Hate when a company fails to include the required hardware for assembly. Love that they included extra! I found that once assembled and positioned, I had to go back once to tighten everything. Not sure if that was because I was not aggressive enough the first time, but once I went over it again, works great — stays in place. Want something charming, unpretentious, and fun that lights up a section of room? I recommend you consider this floor lamp." —John R.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

7. A cast iron pot sure to be a welcome addition to anyone's kitchen — this thing is designed to make any meal a masterpiece that His Holiness, Guy Fieri, would applaud.

Amazon

Promising review: "I have been experimenting with beef and pork roast meals with this. I LOVE it. There are no scorch marks on the bottom after cooking. The cast iron spreads the heat out so effectively that your entire contents are at nearly the same temperature with no hot spots. Indeed, this device is very heavy. That is what makes it work so well. I have used it on my gas stove in the oven and on a top burner, both methods have worked very well." —quiet bells

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

8. A pair of aerating wineglasses that'll really and truly improve the taste of the cheap wine you and your BFF gulp down on all your The Bachelorette viewing nights.

Amazon

Promising review: "I got these for my mom and she loves them! They are great conversation pieces, and fun to use. The wine fans out and falls into the glass as pictured. She runs them through the dishwasher and hasn't had any issues cleaning them that way. These are fun for wine drinkers." —Kaitlyn G.

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $59.95.

9. A pair of top-of-the-line wireless earbuds — a big ol' splurge that's gonna make their music (or podcasts, for those pod people) sound outta-this-world smooth.

Headphones inside case
BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I have owned Google Pixel Buds, Airpods, and B&O E8s and none of them touch the sound quality of these. The build quality is very good and made of premium materials. I am able to discern various instruments with high detail and clarity in various genres ranging from rock, hip-hop, R&B, classical, and even some EDM. The bass is natural and there is clear separation. These do have a warmer sound profile overall, but I tend to like that. 10/10 would buy again." —Ilsabahnur

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $140.

11. A splurge-worthy Samsung Frame for the interior design minded among us who don't want quality wall space taken over by a big blank screen. With this *amazing* gift, they just happen to get a luxury television at the same time.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a brilliant TV! It looks great in art mode. If your primary goal is to have the TV look less like a TV, I think you’ll be pleased with this one. There are some reviews that point out some downsides (like a small amount of local storage), but I’ve had no problems. The pictures make the screen look brighter than it is but with the right pictures, it looks matte and brilliant in art mode; like a framed print." —N B

...I am that monster. 

Promising review: "I love this coffee maker. It's so easy to clean and stores in the fridge with easy access. The spout does not leak, which is pretty awesome too. The coffee basket is large, allowing you to cold brew both coffee or specialty teas. Highly recommend if you are considering a cold brew coffee maker. We had a pitcher-styled one and you can't compare!" —Angie

Amazon

Promising review: "These work amazingly well. I was surprised that you can charge and use them at the same time. I use them on planes to listen to the in-flight entertainment with my AirPods. I also use them to listen to music on my laptop with my AirPods. They work really well. Now, I don't have to carry my wired earbuds with me when I travel anymore. They really work as advertised. I have not had any issues with them since I started using them." —RPL

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get the USB-C double version from Amazon for $56.76 (available in five styles).

Tuft & Needle

Promising review: "This is the best pillow for neck and shoulder pain. These pillows are so wonderful! I suffer from neck and shoulder issues when I sleep and a few nights on this pillow has allowed me to sleep pain free. They seem a bit stiff at first but after a week, they broke in perfectly. I have a Tuft & Needle mattress too and have never slept so well!" —atomson

16. A truly mouthwatering domestic caviar flight. This gift is so good they just might think it's ~fishy~ that they're getting it. But trying caviar for the first time is sure to be an experience they treasure forever.

four tins of caviar, a mother of pearl spoon filled with roe, several blinis, and a serving of creme fresh
Fulton Fish Market

The entire pack includes 2-oz jars of wild hackleback caviar, wild paddlefish caviar, California sturgeon caviar (farmed), and wild salmon roe. You'll also receive a mini crème fraîche, 16 blinis, a mother-of-pearl spoon with a sachet bag, an insulated bag, and a tasting card.

I don't think I've ever impressed my father more than when I had this spread out during his most recent visit. I am a huge fan of Fulton Fish Market, but this Halloween was the first time I tried their caviar selection. My husband, father, and I each had a different favorite and we enjoyed/appreciated the information we gained from the tasting card. If you're looking for a really splendid splurge, this is such a fun and unique gift!

17. A box set of 42 magnetic Tegu blocks so you and your kids can create shapes, places, machines, and creatures without gravity weighing down your imagination.

Amazon

Promising review: "I have to admit the price turned me off from buying these for way too long. We bought out first set for our youngest daughter for Christmas and these were a HUGE hit with both of our kids. Almost all the other toys got ignored for the rest of the week. My oldest daughter turns three in just a month and all she has been asking for is Tegu blocks for her birthday, which is why we purchased this set. I have yet to meet a kid that has not loved to play with these, all my nieces and nephews, my daughter's friends, and the kids in her playgroup have wholeheartedly approved of these. They are one of the only toys we own that are played with on a daily basis." —T Kruse

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get them from Amazon for $125.66.

Uncommon Goods

Promising reviews: "My son is stationed in Washington state and I'm in Texas. My best friend is in Arizona and I'm in Texas. It is great to come home or walk into a room and see it lit up. I love knowing that even though they might be far away, they are thought of often. You won't be disappointed in this purchase." —Monica

"My mother-in-law and baby girl use this to say 'hello' and 'goodnight.' They both get so excited to see their light pop on and it's fun to 'respond' by tapping on their end and changing the color to show they're there! It's perfect for a baby/toddler who doesn't quite talk on the phone but understands colors and lights." —Angie

Shipping info: Economy, standard, and express (one to two business days) shipping options are offered.

Get them from Uncommon Goods for $170.

20. A throw blanket for Broadway fans who love Hairspray so much they would certainly prefer watching the movie with an applicable comfort blanket. This is a ~berry~ good gift, if I do say so myself.

Amazon

Promising review: "This bag came so well protected, wrapped and inside a cotton storage bag. Each brass piece was also wrapped with foam and tape. The care that went into this puts this seller in my personal top five. The bag is huge and beautiful, the color is spot on, and and the leather smell is pleasant, the smell of good tack. Am I impressed enough? Yes, to the point where I'm also buying the 24-inch model. This seller has my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed" —Rich

instagram.com, instagram.com

I have a coffee table from this San Diego–based small biz and I LOVE it. I am an unapologetic maximalist — my apartment is chock-full of eye-catching decor that's all fighting to be the statement-making centerpiece of my home, but this coffee table is officially the winner. The table is completely leak free, and the draining valve keeps me from overwatering my furniture (a thing that is possible with this table, because the future is now). Be sure to check out the site's Instagram for inspiration!

Get it from BloomingTables for $379.

Backcountry

Promising review: "This is my first paddleboard ever and I can't believe I've waited so long to buy one. COVID has been an interesting time and, with limited options available, escaping to the outdoors has been a lifesaver. This board has been extremely stable and that's a huge plus. I've started making my way into larger bodies of water and even with boat wakes this thing is pretty stable. Pop makes amazing boards and I can't wait for all the adventures this board will bring. I've even started planning trips around paddling, haha." —Freddie A.

Shipping info: Standard shipping is free on orders over $50. Orders placed before 3 p.m. are generally shipped the same day. Next-day air orders are available for an additional cost.

Using human-grade memory foam, this mattress is designed for durability throughout your dog's life. The water-resistant liner helps preserve the integrity of the bed for years and keeps your dog comfortable. The fur and hair resistant cover is anti-tear, removable, and machine washable.

Promising review: "We have two dogs and a lot of dog beds. I was looking for something supportive for my older dog. This bed purchase has been the best. It was easy to put together right out of the box; the bolster is already zippered in and the mattress, once unsealed and expanded, fits easily into its cover and zips in to the bottom portion. It's easy to vacuum and clean. The bed is light and easily moveable, yet doesn't shift when on the floor. My old Lab loves it! He is close to 80 pounds and the large size works for him. I will purchase this bed again." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I've bought this kit in the past, and I was so satisfied with the results that I bought two this year. The gin came out delicious, and my friends and I enjoyed it very much. I love this gin kit, and I definitely will buy it again. It's so awesome to make your own gin. I even bought the refill packs that offer different flavors, too. Can't wait to see how good those come out. If you like gin, then I would definitely recommend the Homemade Gin Kit." —Reub

It also tests for over 210 health conditions to help pet owners stay aware of what keeps their K-9 safe!

Promising review: "Very cool. My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a Border collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality of a Border collie. Come to find out he’s a Shih Tzu/pit bull mix, which makes way more sense." —dede123

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

Choose from their office chairs and massage chairs, then customize colors and adjustments to your heart's content! When I got mine (pictured above) I chose the works — I have the massage and heat settings and I'll never be able to work without them again! I swear, this chair has increased my focus and productivity simply because I *want* to sit in it all day. Funny bonus, the wheels make it very easy to maneuver, which is super useful in my tiny apartment when I need to roll it around two desks and a keyboard, through an illegally tiny hallway, and into the living room to use as extra seating.

Promising review: "This chair exceeded my high expectations for comfort, utility, and adaptability to my spinal and gluteal requirements...as in keeping my back properly postured and my butt comfortably positioned. The price is still reasonable, consistent with its sturdy composition and its many adjustability features. I am delighted that I executed my well-thought-out decision to purchase this office chair for my study!" —TonyO

Shipping info: Free standard shipping is available for all purchases, with a ground shipping ETA of up to seven business days.

Get it from X-Chair for $1,199.99 (customization available).

33. A ceramic nonstick cookware set to give your younger sibling if, after visiting their first apartment, you realize they fully plan on living off of cereal...judging by the lack of *any* kitchen tools in the place.

pot set in yellow
Amazon

Promising review: "These are by far the best pots and pans I have ever owned. I was skeptical about buying pans like this because I have in the past and things stuck to them like crazy. These don't have an issue with sticking at all! You need to be sure to hand-wash them and DO NOT use any type of metal on them or they will start to stick and wear out faster. As long as you take care of them and do those couple of things these will last you a long time. I love the mint blue as well! Such a pretty color." —Kimberly Melton

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in six colors).

35. A My Lovely Feline fountain so you can ~drink in~ your cat's affection by watching them actually USE a gift you give them. Cats are constantly dehydrated because they prefer running water, so this thing is a surefire hit!

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

My husband and I have multiple fountains around our apartment and this is one of our favorites! It's easy to clean, looks sleek, and our cats love it.

Be sure to check out everything at My Lovely Feline if you're looking for great cat gifts this year!

36. A Stealth core trainer — a video game balancing board that's gonna be your gym-loving boo's favorite entertainment when they're lying around and looking for something to do.

Getting a Stealth board was the very best thing that has happened to me during quarantine. Mixing the fun of games on your phone with the natural endorphins you get from exercising is, to put it lightly, genius. I have two in my home and my husband and I compete daily to see who can last the longest. My favorite game is the paragliding challenge, he's into the planet-blasting space adventure. Nerd.

Promising review: "I believe any money invested in health and fitness is worth it when utilized. This is a great purchase and integrates gaming with fitness. It's a fun way to build a strong core and expose the abs. No assembly is required, just a quick app download and you'll be ready to break your friends' record and at the same time sculpt your abs." —Makisan

37. A meditation necklace that teaches healthy breathing exercises (it hits an instantly calming tone once you breathe correctly through it). This spiffy accessory is sure to be their own Pavlov's dog of soothing sensations. One whistle and calm will be coming their way!

Promising review: "As a very anxious person, I have struggled with meditating successfully, due to an inability to shut off the constant chatter in my head. This necklace (that doubles as a breathing regulation apparatus) has allowed me to get past that mental block and reap the rewards of meditation. It's not rocket science, it's really quite simple. By focusing on my breathing, I can control the sound of the whistle to be more balanced and tranquil. I plan on buying one for all of my loved ones who struggle with anxiety!" —Celeste Marcotte

39. An arched floor mirror that's gonna be a splendid addition to anyone's room. Mirrors are a splurge, especially good ones, so your loved one is likely gonna ~reflect~ on what a great friend you are every time they see it.

I own this mirror! I recently moved into a new apartment with windows in awkward areas, making my living room darker than it should be during the day. I got this so I could bounce some light from the windows to the other end of the room and it works perfectly! It was one of the first things I put up in my living room and I instantly started getting compliments on it.

Promising review: "This is definitely the most I’ve ever spent on a mirror but I’m super pleased with it! The reflection is great and I didn’t notice any flaws or warping. I would highly recommend." —Annalee

Promising review: "These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They are so cozy warm. Not bulky. I can go for walks or just lounge around the house in them. Having to be at home all the time these days during the pandemic, I wanted shoes that felt like a slipper but give more support. And they aren't weighing me down like the taller Ugg boots. I will wear these everywhere...in every season. Thank you, Ugg!" —Amy Del Santo

42. A handcrafted ceramic essential-oil diffuser to rid their space of unsettling smells and enjoy a scent that soothes them instead.

Amazon

Promising review: "After researching, this diffuser cost a little more than others, but the design and quality more than justified the price difference. I've seen other diffusers and they are all plastic and feel/look cheaply made. The Vitruvi model really is stone, which adds value and appeal to my whole apartment. Also, it's smaller than other brands out there, so fits in well as an accessory. We ordered the peppermint oil and the diffuser worked great in our home. Great product and would recommend!" —Deanna

43. A preserved fern ball that requires EXACTLY zero upkeep — they can simply hang this thing up and hang out with it forevermore! A plant they won't kill? Worth every penny.

Round moss ball with fern leaves spreading from the top, includes hanging strings
The Sill

I bought this a year ago because I really wanted plants in my home and REALLY wanted to not kill them. This gave me a chance to beef up the plants I have without adding in more work. I dust it every so often but other than that, it's a no-effort piece of decor that looks *stunning* 24/7. I can't rave about it enough! And have no fear for your furry friends! Even if you leave this where they can reach it, it's pet-safe!

This WOC-owned business has really taken off since owner Eliza Blank started it in 2012. With a goal to make plants accessible to newbies and horticulturists alike, The Sill offers plants with a wide variety of needs, meaning you can find the right plant for the environment available in your home. There's even an "easy care collection" specifically for beginners.

44. A pair of long-distance touch bracelets that light up when you touch them, to let your long-distance love know you're thinking of them in a way that's sure to brighten their day.

Two models with the black bracelets on their wrists
Amazon

Because this is light-based, you can make your own color codes, where blue could be "I miss you," pink might be "something just reminded me of you," purple could be "I love you" — you get the idea.

Promising review: "My love is being deployed across seas to Kuwait for the army and we both know that there aren't going to be too many times where we are able to chat on the phone or Skype/FaceTime each other with the time change and her schedule over there. I wanted to find something that would keep us close even though we are going to be so far away. These are so awesome. The touches are vibrant and every time I receive one from her, a huge smile comes across my face. It's a simple yet amazing way to let your significant other know that you're thinking about them. You don't need wifi, just a Bluetooth connection to your phone. Thank you, Bond, for keeping us close. PS: Our 15-month-old loves feeling the touches and loves sending his mom touches as well." —Amazon Customer

Tushy

Promising review: "I am loving my Tushy! It is powerful and so easy to install! Not gonna lie, I wish my sink was on the same wall so I could do the warm water option but it is super effective and definitely wakes you up! I believe this is the best way to keep things happily clean and, coupled with my Squatty Potty, I think 2019 is going to be the year of the happy BM!" —Natalie D.

Promising review: "Truly I am obsessed with this keyboard. It connects to both my Mac and my PC desktop (not at the same time though) and it's lightweight but quality in its design and structure.

Common Alloy Jewelry

I own very little jewelry, so the pieces I *do* own get a lot of use! I got this because I wanted a simple necklace I could wear for special occasions and daily use. I can't rave enough about it! If you love gold, tell Santa this needs to go in your stocking.

49. And finally, an indoor ball pit your family and friends (or, in my case, felines) are sure to have a ~ball~ with every single day. Just picture the holiday photo you can get with this under the tree! Dreamy.

Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

Obviously this precious ball pit is intended for actual HUMAN children, but my millennial pet parent heart couldn't help but get this for my house! I hide my cats' favorite treats in the bottom and they will dig around for ages trying to find them all. It's not designed to withstand pet nails, but it's held up really well. I can't rave about it enough!

Minnidip is a small business started by Emily Vaca that makes designer inflatables for adults and kids (and cats!) alike. The products are trendsetting and oh so fun! Be sure to check out all the ball pit colors available!
