34 Last-Minute Gifts So Good You'll Want To Add Them To Your Wish List Too

*Frantically texts Santa* Is it too late to redo my wish list?

Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are especially tricky this year and can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Shop early and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

1. A blackhead remover vacuum for your beauty-obsessed friend who also loves watching blackhead extractions. Its powerful head sucks up blackheads, whiteheads, sebaceous filaments, grease, and leftover makeup, and it comes with four different attachments and five suction levels.

2. A heated back and neck massager so they finally stop complaining about their aches and pains (and so you can steal it whenever they're not using it.)

3. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, because you truly comprehend how much they (and you!) love a combination of sweet and spicy. Drizzle it on pizza, ice cream, waffles, wings, cheeseboards, and even in cocktails to create something un-bee-lievably delicious.

4. Or a Sriracha keychain — a gift that'll bring the heat for any food masochist. They'll never eat another boring meal with the help of this lil' guy.

5. A genius iPhone adapter case if your friend is notorious for losing their dongle. Just think of all the headphone jack adapters you just saved them from having to buy!

The triangular case, which has latches to hold onto the dongle and is on a keychain

6. A Wheel of Fortune 2021 daily calendar for testing your other half's letter guessing skills (and yours too!). Category is Titles: B_ST GI_T G_V_R.

7. A dip powder kit so they can perfect their at-home manicure and save money in the long run. The powder dries in just 30 seconds, and reviewers say the color stays chip free for weeks — which is great but also a bummer because it's so easy to use that they're gonna wish they could do it all over again.

8. A pair of ankle socks, because all the book lover in your life wants for the holidays is a few blissful uninterrupted hours to read.

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

10. A Bokksu subscription to take their tastebuds on a trip to Japan seeing as we can't travel IRL anytime soon. Each month they'll receive a curated box of delicious Japanese sweets and snacks — and they can even rebuy the foods they love.

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

12. A Revlon hot air brush so they can go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes.

13. A satin-lined hoodie to protect natural hair from breakage and friction, reduce frizz, and prevent moisture loss.

14. A no-frills five-year one-line-a-day journal because it'll take them a few minutes each day to complete and give them years of happy memories and forgotten moments to flip through.

15. A hair finishing stick that'll clean 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. File this under really practical gifts you never knew existed.

16. An cruelty-free lengthening mascara for the friend who's tried just about every mascara but hasn't found one that won't flake, fade, or streak. Spoiler: this is the one!

17. A splurge-worthy pair of 14-karat chunky gold hoops because your mom said she "doesn't need or want anything" but you know she'll 1,000% be salty if you actually listen and don't get her anything.

18. A National Geographic geode kit that'll make for a ~smashing~ gift. Now hand me those goggles, please!

19. A 5-in-1 wine stopper to instantly elevate the $7 bottle of wine you're also gifting them. It doubles (triples? quadruples?) as an aerator, stopper, pourer, filter, and re-corker.

20. Or, Hand Lettering 101 if your friend's skilled at penmanship. Also, Meghan Markle did calligraphy before she met Prince Harry, and I'm not saying that this book will help them marry their own prince, but I'm also not saying that that is outside the realm of possibility.

21. A pore-tightening, skin-lifting face mask for making their self-care time a little terrifying because 1. it'll make them look like a zombie when it sits on their face and 2. it's so darn effective.

Reviewer before and after showing the mask made their skin look tighter and reduced the appearance of some wrinkles

22. A handy puzzle board if they're big on puzzles but small on space. It comes with a removable assembly board that can hold a 1,000-piece puzzle, and the case itself has five sorting trays and two handles for easy carrying.

23. A 1,000-piece murder mystery puzzle that'll keep the whole family occupied for hours. And it's basically two gifts in one! Once you put together the puzzle, read the included booklet and try and figure out whodunnit.

24. A Drinking Animals Coloring Book or a Jason Momoa coloring book to take the edge off — with coloring, a cocktail recipe, and fantasies of Aquaman.

25. A pack of PS4 controller thumbsticks so their game is never ruined by a misclick or slippery, sweaty thumbs.

26. A dog DNA kit that'll show them exactly what kind of dog your beloved rescue mutt is.

27. A 23andMe test for the person who thinks they know everything about themselves *and* the person who knows basically nothing about their family history.

28. A box of drink infusions to take an at-home cocktail (or mocktail) to the next level. Each sachet is filled with an artfully crafted blend of spices, fruits, and botanicals that'll spice up your alcoholic beverage, soda, or water.

The boxes stacked on top of each other and artfully arranged

29. A VR headset if your video game–obsessed sibling wants a more immersive gaming experience. You can even use it to just watch TV if you want to feel like you're really there.

30. A truffle seasoning for anyone with expensive tastes. They can sprinkle it on pizza, pasta, salads, eggs, popcorn, french fries, and anything else that speaks to them.

31. A mini Pusheen cross-stitch kit because chonky cats and ridiculously adorable embroidery is their core aesthetic.

32. A box of flavor-tripping tablets to totally transform their taste buds. Lemons that taste as sweet as lemonade? Hot sauce that tastes like hot donut glaze? What even is food?

33. A mini clay bakeshop kit if they love all things mini and you love that you don't have to smile through the pain of eating their cooking.

34. A set of cute pens that'll make them smile and think of you as they sit at their desk and hate their job.
