    1. A set of 10 unicorn-horn makeup brushes to add a little bit of fantastical whimsy to any beauty newbie's collection.

    Promising review: "Honestly was very surprised with how soft the bristles on the brush were. The handles feel like cheaper plastic, but for the price of the product and the quality of the bristles, definitely worth the purchase." —Amazon Customer

    Get them on Amazon for $12.99; also check out a 10-piece mermaid set for $11.99.

    2. A wine aerator that goes directly into the bottle, so they can pour as usual but enjoy the ~upgraded~ taste (no matter how cheap or fancy their bottle happens to be).

    Promising review: "Great gadget for a great price. Easy to use and does its job well. It's a nifty little thing. It pours smoothly and aerated well. I wash it by rinsing and running hot water through it and that seems to work." —Chicago Sports Fan

    Get it on Amazon for $10.99.

    3. A pack of 16 hydrating sheet masks with over 1100 positive reviews that's the closest you can get to giving them the gift of soft and glowing skin.

    Promising review: "This contains a great assortment of masks. Most seemed to have a fruit base. The sheets were easy to unfold and put on. I find they don't stay on the face when sitting or walking around, so this is a lay down and relax mask. There was a lot of concentrate in it but a minimal smell. It was very light and natural smelling, not like a perfume. This sheet has eye folds; you can either leave then down or you can fold over your eyes. (This is the first sheet I have used that had this feature and it was great.) The mask left my soft and smooth and felt wonderful on. It had a cooling effect that was very soothing while wearing it." —Elizabeth Cameron

    Get the pack on Amazon for $10.96.

    4. A fill-in-the-blank book you can customize to reflect all the sweetness, goofiness, and happiness of your relationship with your S.O. — or your mom, or your grandparents, or your best friend.,

    Promising review: "This was my first Christmas with my boyfriend, and I got this as a stocking stuffer. He ended up buying the "What I Love About Us" version and we had so much fun looking through them and seeing our similar/different answers. The prompts are really cute and simple but allow for a lot of creativity, and you can set the mood with each page whether you want to be funny or sweet. This was one of our favorite gifts." —Kerry C.

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in many versions).

    5. A deck of dog-lovers playing cards for the merriest post-holiday poker games you've had in years.

    Stage Stores

    Different cards have different cats — and fun facts about each breed!

    Get them from Amazon for $11 each in either a dog version or cat cat version. They're also available from Stage Stores for $9.99 in dogs or cats.

    Or a set of ~lenticular~ cat or dog (or shark!) cards to distract your fellow poker players with their holographic charm.

    A surefire strategy to win, right?

    Get them on Amazon for $8.27+.

    6. A pack of six bath bombs that will fizz away stress and worries, one brightly-toned color at a time.

    Promising review: "The are very large and are sufficient for a long hot bath. It does not have a powerfully sweet scent and I like that. So many smell artificially sweet but these are more natural and wonderful. It does bubble a long time which I actually find relaxing." —CA Midwest

    Get the six pack on Amazon for $9.75. (Which comes out to about $1.60 per bath bomb. If you're looking for something more, well, Lush-like, also check out a different highly-rated set of 10 bath bombs on Amazon for $20.87, or about $2 per bath bomb).

    7. A ring cleaning pen to help all of your married friends keep their wedding bling satisfyingly clean and sparkling.

    Promising review: "I’ll be honest and say that I hate having to drop off my ring at the jewelers to have it cleaned. It takes a couple days and it’s just a hassle to make that stop to drop off and then stop again to pick up every single time it gets dirty. So I was talking with someone who owned the dazzle stick and she absolutely loved it! She said you have to get it if you constantly want to maintain a shiny ring. Not even a day later did I make the purchase and I am more than pleased. My ring gets super cloudy on the sides and this dazzle cleaning pen wiped it all away!! It’s incredible, you won't be disappointed." —Kristina

    Get it on Amazon for $5.49.

    8. A 30-piece colored pencil set because their coloring book pages are about to rival even Monet's best shades.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    9. A bar of Face/Butt Soap or Beer Soap because there's (probably) nothing better than laughing really hard with the person after they open their gift.

    Promising review for the Face/Butt Soap: "This soap is great! It smells nice (classic soap smell, so I smell nice and clean) and my husband thinks it's hilarious. I think it'd make a great gift for anyone with a sense of humor. The words are imprinted pretty deep into the soap too, so you can read it even when the bar is half-gone." —bethany duffy

    Get the Face/Butt Soap on Amazon for $8.85.

    Promising review for the Beer Soap: "You get a lot of bang for your buck with this bar. The texture is really nice; it lathers well, feels silky and has flecks of something a tiny bit exfoliating. I don't feel like it's drying my hands out at all, and might be even a little bit more moisturizing than other bar soaps I've used for hand-washing. It also smells great." —Johanna I.

    Get the Beer Soap on Amazon for $9.99.

    10. A set of six cute little monster clips certain to make them say "Aww!!!!" out loud every time they open their pantry door.

    Get the set of six on Amazon for $3.99.

    11. A clip-on, rechargeable selfie ring light so all your group selfies (and even their mouthwatering food photos) are always perfectly lit.,

    Promising review: "My daughter is obsessed with makeup and of course taking photos of herself. When I saw this selfie light I just had to get it for her. I knew she would absolutely love it. And I was right! From the second she opened it she just started snapping photos trying the different brightness levels. She hasn’t stopped using it since she got it. I highly recommend this selfie light if you're into taking pictures, esp. if you do lots of makeup looks! It helps highlight the look so much! The price is definitely worth it!" —Andrea

    Get it on Amazon for $8.98.

    12. A pair of socks any Potter-fan will treasure like they're priceless, the same way Dobby dearly loved his very first sock.

    Get them on Amazon for $7.99.

    13. A reversible-sequin ~mermaid~ pillow cover because it's practically impossible to have too much color and sparkle in life.

    Note that it's just a cover/case, not the full pillow — you'll have to get an insert ($13.81 for two of 'em on Amazon) or just use a pillow you already own.

    Promising review: "I cannot wait to give these to my daughters for Christmas! I'm glad I read previous reviews otherwise I might not have realized that these were only pillowcases. The quality was excellent for a great price and I just went to Walmart and purchased $4 pillows in the craft section to fill the cases with. These were well worth the money." —Jaime Hallez

    Get one on Amazon for $6.98 (23 colors/designs available).

    14. A screwdriver keychain because there are countless opportunities to use a Phillips or flathead in everyone's life, you just don't notice them until you actually have the tools.

    Promising review: "If life has taken you to the point that you need a key chain screwdriver I think you'd be hard pressed to do better. I like these a lot and have had a few occasions to put them to use where they've solidly performed." —Paul

    Get them on Amazon for $8.49.

    15. A terracotta brown sugar bear they simply soak in water, gently dry, then pack in with the brown sugar to keep it from hardening up into an impossible-to-use rock.

    Promising review: "After multiple containers for my brown sugar and continuously throwing my brown sugar away due to giant hard lumps... I began to wonder why our brown sugar never lumped as a child... And that's when I remembered a weird brown bear in our sugar... After a quick Google search I found this! I soaked it in water for 30 mins and then added to my lumpy brown sugar... Two days later there is not a single lump in my sugar! Yay!" —Sneezeloaf

    Get it from Amazon for $5.34.

    16. A festive pair of bursting-star earrings they can wear with almost any outfit for an instant dose of glamorous.

    Promising review: "I received the gold ones this afternoon and after seeing how beautiful they are I just ordered the black ones. These earrings are stunning! They're very subtle in the sparkle but very elegant and classy-looking. Can be worn day or evening and are very reasonably priced." —SHOZILLA

    Get them from Amazon for $8.58.

    17. A Sriracha key chain so they'll never be forced to choke down another meal without their favorite condiment ever again.

    Weirdly, though, it doesn't come with Sriracha — you'll have to fill it from your personal stash.

    Get it on Amazon for $7.95 (you can also get a pack of two officially licensed Huy Fong Sriracha key chains — the ones with the rooster — on Amazon for $14.23, but that's technically over $10. You also have to fill those with sauce from home.)

    18. A highlighter kit with four luminescent, sparkling colors so they can shine like the superstar you know they are.

    Several reviewers say this is a great dupe for the Alchemist palette...but you didn't hear it from me!

    Promising review: "I love it! I use it almost daily, it really is light enough to wear in the office and not look like I'm out to the clubs or trying to pursue an Instagram career. Plus it's good for lips and eyes as well as cheeks. Highly recommend especially for the price! It's a fantastic dupe and cannot beat the price. Package game really quickly, and looks great. No shattered pans or anything." —Lucinda

    Get it on Amazon for $9.89.

    19. A linen/cotton blend pillow cover for the one (or two, or six) people in your life who have a quote from the The Office ready for pretty much any situation.

    You'll also need to get an insert (or use an 18"x18" pillow you already own); you can get one for $8.49 on Amazon.

    Promising review: "By far the greatest pillow cover to ever exist. If Jesus needed a pillow cover it would be this pillow. The Dalai Lama would murder for this pillow cover." —Matt Wood

    Get the cover on Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A set of beaded fringe earrings in their favorite color, proving that you've known each other long enough to find them statement earrings that they love.

    Promising review: "Beautiful earrings! I’m actually very surprised and pleased at how pretty these are. The tassels and tops are made from very pretty seed beads. At three-inches long they make a statement and are noticeable without being over the top or looking like “cocktail party earrings.” Great purchase!" —OtterBlonde

    Get a pair on Amazon for $9.99 (19 colors).

    21. A shiny mirror cube that will look pretty and interesting in any configuration, so they don't even have to be expert puzzle solvers to enjoy playing with it.

    Promising review: "Son is obsessed with Rubik's, and is able to solve the regular cube very well. This was a great next step challenge to him: the algorithm is not different, but the mirror faces to the sides adds just enough difficulty to the solve, without creating excessive frustration. If your kid learned to solve the regular cube, and is looking for another challenge, I'd say this is a great next step." —A. Sun

    Get it on Amazon for $7.99 in silver or gold.

    22. A chalkboard mug you can write a personalized message on before you carefully wrap it for that special someone.

    It comes with a piece of chalk, but to make your message extra permanent and neat, you could use chalk markers (like this four-color set, $9.86 on Amazon).

    Get the mug on Amazon for $9.50.

    23. A three-drawer acrylic bathroom or makeup organizer that will ~clearly~ help transform their current storage situation.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for an organizer for my narrow medicine cabinet for quite a while. This is just the right size for hair ties, bobby pins, and barrettes. I may have to get a second one for cotton balls and q-tips." —W. Michael

    Get it on Amazon for $7.99.

    24. Or a nine-slot palette sorter because you've seen the big pile of eyeshadows and blushes just lying out on their counter (and heard them talking about how much they want to fix that problem).

    Promising review: "I was expecting this to be flimsy & easily breakable, but I was very surprised. The acrylic is heavy and strong. I was able to fit two thinner palettes in each compartment, so it really holds more than nine, depending on your palettes." —Stephanie A. Osburn

    Get it on Amazon for $8.99.

    25. A pack of three infinitely-reusable makeup removing cloths that require nothing but water to help their face be perfectly clean at the end of the day.

    Promising review: "This product... I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don't have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy." —Heather and Ryne Griffith

    Get the pack of five on Amazon for $7.12.

    26. A waterproof notepad and pencil because the thoughts we have in the shower shouldn't stay in the shower — it's where lots of people have their best ideas!

    It's all comes down to the routine: because it's not something you have to think about, showering lets your brain ~free associate~.

    Promising review: "You know when something pops into your head that you have to buy or finish, but it's a totally inopportune time, like when you're just falling asleep or when you're driving? Yeah, this happens to me a lot in the shower. I think shampoo activates my neurotransmitters or something. So I got this handy little notepad to keep in my shower. I love this thing!! It sticks to my sliding shower door and hasn't fallen down once. The pencil works great, and the paper has kept its form perfectly. Super impressed." —Kim

    Get it on Amazon for $9.54, or a ~love notes~ pad for $9.95.

    27. A pen with a cap that looks like their favorite Harry Potter character's wand so they have an excuse to nerd out in everyday life (oh, and it comes with a little bookmark for their next re-read, too).

    Get them on Amazon for $8.50-$9 each: Harry, Hermione, Ron, Dumbledore, Luna, Snape, or Voldemort.

    28. A cupcake decorating kit for the frequent baker in your life who also secretly wishes they could live in a world with unicorns.

    Promising review: "I thought this was a lot of fun to use. It's nice to get the three colors without trying to put all three icings in one bag. I was able to pipe an entire 9-in. layer cake in about 15 minutes with adding a bit more icing to each bag near the end. Getting the three couplers to lock together requires that you cut the bag at the right point so that the plastic bag doesn't cover the notches and grooves that are meant to interlock. I will definitely be using this again." —Nicole S.

    Get it on Amazon for $7.26.

    29. A strategy game that fits in a tiny tin for hours of fun both kids and grown-ups can enjoy.

    It's for between two and four players, and best for ages eight and up.

    Promising review: "This game is a ton of fun! If you like puzzle/strategy games I would definitely recommend this! It's a game that two people could play so my wife and I love to play it! It takes a little bit to understand the rules, but once you do it's easy. I would definitely recommend it." —jstivers

    Get it on Amazon for $9.42.

    30. A set of three brush attachments for their drill that will make cleaning caked-on grime incredibly fast and maybe even a little fun.,

    Promising review: "If you have tile, you need this. I cleaned a NASTY shower in about 40 minutes. Really. I used an old 12v drill and needed two batteries, but, soooo much easier than scrubbing. The set looks durable, but I've just started using so can't speak to that. I'll revise my review if it falls apart soon. If you have tile, just buy it." —victoria smith

    Get the set of three on Amazon for $9.99 (two colors available).

    31. A 52-week gratitude journal so they can spend a few minutes each morning or evening jotting down all the wonderful things in their life.

    There's a spread for each week with a (secular) inspirational quote, then space to write down three things each day.

    Get it on Amazon for $6.47.

    32. A best friends necklace for your work wife who will show anyone she can the latest adorable video of her pup.

    Get it on Amazon for $4.99.
