1.A rechargeable ring light so they (and you) will never have to worry about finding good lighting — you already have it. This one clips on to your phone and has 36 LED bulbs so they can skip the embarrassment of asking you to shine your flashlight for their pic.
2.An over-the-sink makeup mat to transform their tiny counters into a complete makeup station. Good thing you're the first one up in the morning, which means you get to use it before anyone else.
portable Anker battery pack that'll give them multiple charges on the go, which is great because you'll probably need to borrow it too. No more sitting in coffee shops just to charge your phones!
4.A blow dryer wall mount because they, unfortunately, do not have three hands. On the flip side, it's a gift for your roommate and you guys share a bathroom...are you seeing where I'm going with this?
5.A cold brew maker if coffee is their lifeblood and they need at least a cup before work to function. And would you look at that — it makes enough for you to grab a glass too.
6.Or, a HyperChiller for cooling their coffee, tea, and wine in 60 seconds. It's so fast that they won't mind if you use it too before tossing it in the dishwasher.
7.A 7-in-1 Instant Pot so they can finally get some good food around here. This bad boy can whip up a lot of food in record time, and your friend will need your help getting through all the recipes they want to try.
8.Or a Turbo Pot that'll heat up 30% to 50% faster than regular stainless steel cookware because of the unique ridged base that absorbs heat better. That means less time between them and cheesy pasta that they'll inevitably make too much of — and that's where you come in handy.
9.A bidet for the friend who wants to be pampered. With a bidet, they'll save on toilet paper and enjoy the feeling of a machine cleaning their bum. Sounds like we're moving in!
10.A jewelry-cleaning pen to make their jewels sparkle. So yeah, you're definitely going to need to borrow this to polish your favorite earrings before that big date next Friday.
11.A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey for anyone who enjoys the sweet and spicy side of life. Drizzle it on pizza, ice cream, waffles, wings, cheeseboards, and even in cocktails to create something un-bee-lievably delicious.
12.A 5-in-1 wine stopper to instantly elevate that $7 bottle of wine you split every girl's night in. It's also an aerator, stopper, pourer, filter, and re-corker.
13.A memory foam seat cushion with cooling gel to support their bum and relieve pressure on the tailbone. Get ready to play musical chairs with this blue boy.
14.A practical knife sharpener so your favorite chef friend can hone their blades — and you can cut through a hunk of cheddar at midnight with ease. Dull knives tend to lead to more accidents and that's the last thing you want.
15.A do-it-all Echo Dot that'll tell them how many cups are in a quart when their hands are covered in flour. It can also provide a soundtrack at a holiday party, call their partner to remind them to pick up butter at the store, or turn lights on and off with a simple voice command.
16.A heated back and neck messager so they finally stop complaining about their aches and pains (and so you can steal it whenever they're not using it.)
17.PhoneSoap, a handy gadget with disinfecting UV light for your germaphobe friend. Prepare to have many fights over who gets to use the smartphone sanitizing station first.
18.A fabric shaver so their clothes look like they're straight from the store instead of worn and pilling. They'll be so impressed with the results that they'll practically beg you to try it — not suspecting at all that you've planned this whole thing just so you can use it too.
19.A practical Squatty Potty that'll get them in and out of the bathroom quicker than they can read all ingredients in their shampoo, which means the bathroom is all yours again.
20.A handy and minimalist charging stand that'll juice an iPhone, AirPods, and an Apple Watch simultaneously. The tag definitely said it was for them but for some reason all your tech stuff is on it...weird.
21.A handheld steamer for the perpetually late friend whose clothes always look like they've been sitting in the dryer for a week. It's only fair that you get to use it too as payment for getting them such a great gift.
22.And a shirt sleeve ironing tool so their button-downs are perfectly ironed, from collar to cuff. Looks like we're going to need it too for our big interview next week.
23.A Jeopardy! 2020 daily calendar to test their knowledge (and yours too!). Get it for your desk neighbor at work and you'll always get to play along.
24.A classic book that you can read and reread when they're done with it.
25.Capri Blue's Volcano candle so their house can smell like Anthropologie — aka the best scent in the world. Fortunately, as their roommate, this means *your* room will smell amazing too.
26.A cozy fleece throw for your roomie that's — wouldn't you know it — big enough for the both of you to share when you're bingeing Netflix.
27.Codenames, a word association game that requires multiple people, and yes, I am free, thank you so much for letting me join your team!
You buying gifts for your friends that you know you'll get to use:
