    1. A kitty face candle because sometimes friends and fam think of bigger things to give you and forget just how much you love small smell-goods. This candle is just as ~purr~ty as it can be and will fill any room up in your house with the sweet smell of vanilla and caramel.

    2. A Star Wars Lightsaber chopsticks set to defend your belly from hunger with the bravery of the Jedi. May the ~forks~ totally NOT be with you as long as you have these cool, glowy things to eat with. The set will also come with a Millenial Falcon beer bottle opener!

    3. A feather pen for the writer in you because no one's ever gonna think of this niche vintage-inspired find. It'll come with an antique-style base to stand it up on and look so gorgeous sitting atop your desk. When people walk in your home office, they're gonna feel like they've entered the abode of a V.I.P and, well, it's true!

    4. A kitty spoon that'll hang on the side of your tea and coffee cups so you can stir, sip, and hang it when you don't need it. This thing is su-purr cute!

    5. A kitchen knife sharpener so you can refresh your dulling knives and save money on new ones!

    6. A wearable nail polish bottle holder to make your DIY manicure sessions way less messy and easier to complete. It's made of silicone rubber which will fit various finger sizes and make it easier to clean. It's also designed to hold different nail bottle shapes and sizes.

    7. "Shhh! I'm reading" socks so everyone will know EXACTLY what the deal is when you snuggle up with your favorite book.

    8. A stretchy elastic hat that'll make for the cutest photos (and probably earn the displeasure of your furry overlords). No one understands how much you're obsessed with your cat, but it's OK.

    9. A gentle Mustela nourishing stick you'll want to keep in your bag at all times if you have dry skin. It's made with shea butter and ceramides that create a moisture-trapping barrier to keep your skin hydrated. And! It comes in a handy stick form so you can swipe it as needed.

    10. A Chi automatic curling iron, because you deserve perfect curls in mere minutes. All you do is insert your hair into the chamber and the curler will automatically wrap it around the heated rod. Then, just wait until it beeps to let you know that the curl has set. The best part: the barrel protects your fingers from getting burned.

    11. An adorable squishy night light so you can create the perfect ambiance for a relaxing night in that involves a lot of Netflix. Cycle between seven colors and light modes with a gentle tap.

    12. A 3D sloth mug that'll perfectly sum up how you feel whenever you're too far away from bedtime. This sloth mug also doubles as a thermal cup so your drinks won't cool off too quickly.

    13. A bright Air pods case set to keep your precious earbuds scratch-free and safely tucked away so you don't lose them while you're out moving and shaking. The set includes the pretty case, a pair of air pods, and a free pom-pom keychain accessory.

    14. A scalp massager that'll transform your shower into a five-star salon. A relaxing scalp massage is great for getting that blood flowing to your head while simultaneously breaking down buildup (hello hairspray and dry shampoo) that's making your hair oily.

    15. A cat sock set with adorable kitten ears sticking up on the ankles so that even if you don't have a real cat to cuddle with, you'll at least have one close to your feet. You'll get five pairs of socks in the set in an assortment of colors.

    16. Biotin shampoo to give yourself the gift of a cleaner, healthier scalp! Soooo many reviewers credited this shampoo with helping to thicken the thin areas in their hair and preventing breakage and they've got the before-and-after photos to prove it!

    17. Biodegradable hair ties because — stay with me here — you'll always need them and if you're like me, you're always losing them. Every few months, you replace hair ties that magically disappear but at least these are biodegradable so wherever they land when they leave your possession, you'll at least know they'll break down and return to the earth's soil instead of taking up space in some janky landfill. These hair ties are the literal circles of life and so worth dropping in your stocking and all the others you stuff this season!

    18. A set of color-changing lip balms with flowers inside for anyone with chronically dry lips who's tried just about every other chapstick.

    19. Mean Girls magnets because only you know how many times a day quotes or references from that movie come out of your mouth. The Burn Book magnet actually opens up so you can read it and isn't this whole set, like, really pretty?!

    20. Pink Miracle Shoe Cleaner Kit that'll turn back the hands of time on the shoes you adore but haven't worn in a while because they've seen better days. This cleaner will kick the dirt off of any shoes made of leather, vinyl, nubuck, suede, and canvas — with just a few drops! If you ever threw up in your mouth a little after getting a stain on your favorite shoes because you thought it would never come out — then this cleaner will be your new jam.

    21. A hair finishing stick for cleaning up all those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns. It's basically like a mascara wand coated in natural plant oils for your hair.

    22. A PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer & Universal Charger (yuuup from the Shark Tank show!) that'll kill 99.99% of germs using a UV light. It's an affordable and helpful device yet may sit at a price point that isn't something you'd want your friends and fam to pay for and give you. It's designed to fit most smartphones and is USB-chargeable.

    A black square case (the size of a large tablet but way thicker) is sitting on a surface. It has a lid which is open. The case has a phone (looks like a droid) sitting inside of it with a blue screen.

    23. A blackhead remover kit because no one else knows that you need to tend to your blackheads in a more healthy way instead of popping them with your fingers. Since you know yourself, treat yourself with these tools that'll encourage you to keep hands off!

    24. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara that'll give you lush pause-the-room lashes — no falsies involved.

    25. A jewelry-cleaning pen to make your jewels sparkle and satisfy your itch to clean everything. It's compact enough to fit in your purse so you can use it on the go, yet it's powerful enough to clean days', months', and weeks' worth of dirt and grime that's dulled your stones' shine.

    26. An Anastasia Beverly Hills palette that you definitely shouldn't wait on anyone to bless you with. If you've already been eyeing the palettes by this brand, then STOP wondering and take the plunge, sweetie! No one else understands why these things are worth it but us stans so get into it. You know you've been wanting to and this thing has buttery mattes and soft shimmers that'll BLESS your blending life the very first time you use it.

    27. A terrifyingly hilarious keychain for any fan of The Office that'll make you smile after a long day when you grab your keys to open the front door and see Dwight wearing the CPR dummy's face.

    28. A primer that'll transform your face into a smooth, even canvas for your makeup. It's made with green tea extract and collagen to protect and moisturize your skin.

    29. A pack of mindfulness cards, because you're really good at hiding your stress but it's taking a toll on your mental and emotional health. This'll help you learn to experience more awareness, calmness, and joy in your day-to-day existence.

    30. An at-home teeth whitening kit that's a heck of a lot cheaper than a trip to the dentist. This set comes with a comfortable custom fit tray and an LED light so you can chill with your favorite show while your teeth lighten. If you use it consistently, you can expect a set of pearly whites that are two to eight shades whiter than before.

    31. 1 Page At A Time, a daily journal for anyone who needs a creative outlet. It's filled with 365 prompts that'll inspire you to draw, list, reflect, share, and write whatever you feel.

    32. A stoneware pie bird that'll vent steam from the filling as your pie bakes in the oven to prevent it from boiling over and ruining the look of your beautiful pie. You're gonna score a 10 in taste ~and~ presentation at all the potlucks and other shindigs you bring your treats to — and you'll have your own stocking-stuffing self to thank!

    33. A roll-on migraine stick so you can find relief from the inevitable mind-numbing headache that follows holiday dinners with your in-laws.

    34. A tiny library-inspired change purse that'll be perfect if you're a millennial dinosaur like me who ~actually~ remembers checking out physical books with these lil' cards in 'em. This thing won't take up much space in your pocket or bag but it'll take up a TON of space in your nostalgic heart because it's just way too friggin' cute.

    35. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, because no one quite comprehends how much you love foods that are sweet and spicy. Drizzle it on pizza, ice cream, waffles, wings, cheeseboards, and even in cocktails to create something un-bee-lievably delicious.

    36. A 5-in-1 wine stopper to instantly elevate that $7 bottle of wine you bought as a last-minute contribution to a holiday dinner. It's also an aerator, stopper, pourer, filter, and re-corker.

    37. And a pack of wine condoms for when the party ~finishes early~ and there's still pinot left over.

    38. A mini Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy who'll bring joy to your life. Look at this lil' guy just flapping his arms and body, 100% content with his life. *This* is what I aspire to be. *This* is what we should all aspire to be.

    39. Or, a screaming goat who sits on a tree stump and shrieks whenever you touch it (honestly, same) if that's more your style.

    40. Money soap, because no one listens to you when you say you'd rather just get cash instead of gifts you won't use. Inside every bar is a $1, $5, $10, $20, or $50 bill — and yes, some Amazon reviewers have found the $50 bill.

    *Adds everything to my cart*
