    36 Gift Ideas People Told Us Are Completely, Entirely Worth It After Getting Them From Our Posts

    You know they'll be a hit, because they're tested and tried by readers just like you.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times are tricky 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!

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community (and asked 'em again!) to tell us about the best gifts they've bought from our posts — plus pulled any recommendations they made in the comments of other gift guides — and here are their responses!

    1. One of those cuddly-looking teddy bear coats they can throw over basically any outfit to make it instantly adorable. And if that's not enough, it's just really. darn. soft. and. cozy.

    2. The Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza card game for anyone who loves family or roommate game nights, especially ones that have a dose of high-energy, adorably illustrated easy fun.

    A bunch of the different cards face up, each one is a different pastel color with an illustrated character on it and their name (i.e.

    You deal all the cards out to your two to four players, and everyone keeps their mini-deck face down. Everyone takes a turn putting a card down in the middle of the table, saying one of the words "taco," "cat," "goat," "cheese," and "pizza," in that order. If the picture on your card matches the word that's said, everyone slaps their hand on the card in a pile as quickly as possible. The last person on the pile has to take the stack and add 'em to their cards, and whoever runs out of cards first wins!

    3. The Dash rapid egg cooker so their breakfasts become instantly easier and more delicious, without taking much more effort than pouring a standard bowl of cereal. It makes tasty omelets plus hard-boiled, poached, and scrambled eggs in a jiffy with minimal dishes!

    4. And the easy-to-use cold brew maker they also mention in their recommendation, because it will complete the breakfast theme gift exchange gift, thanks to the fact that it transforms regular old ground coffee into delicious iced coffee concentrate overnight.

    5. Or some single-serve Vietnamese pour-over coffee packs so they can enjoy a cup of delicious, fancy coffee without paying big bucks at the store, but also don't have to put together some contraption every time they want a caffeinated treat.

    6. A pack of 16 hydrating sheet masks with over 1,200 positive reviews — it's the closest you can get to giving them the gift of soft and glowing skin.

    7. A talking Darth Vader light Clapper that will basically let them live their dream of using the Force multiple times a day, even if it's just to switch on their bedside lamp.

    8. And two pairs of light-up chopsticks for epic battles over the last delicious bites of their favorite dinners.

    9. An incredibly comfy memory foam seat cushion to support their tailbone and behind as they work, drive, game, pay bills, or just tuck in for a few hours of good eating and hanging out with the family.

    10. A circular blanket that looks like a tortilla because what's a warmer or more cuddly way to pass the cold winter months than snuggling up like a burrito?? I truly do not know.

    11. The Comfy, a reversible blanket-slash-sweatshirt that's perfect for pretty much anyone who likes to lounge around under a blanket, but wishes the blanket followed them everywhere they went.

    12. A pretty bamboo version of the Squatty Potty toilet stool (yup!) so you can both have a good laugh when they unwrap it, and the next time they go they can genuinely see the benefits of how it aligns everything in a natural way to make pooping easier and faster.

    13. And a motion-activated, color-changing LED toilet light that will a) let them easily use the bathroom at night, no tripping in the dark or bright overhead lights required, b) lead to even more laughs at the moment of unwrapping, and c) be a small, delightful little thing they get to experience every single day.

    14. A set of gorgeous gold measuring cups and spoons with etched measurements that won't fade over time so even if they use them on a regular basis for all sorts of recipes, they'll still satisfy your giftee's magpie-like love for pretty shiny things.

    15. A genius, twice-as-thick workout mat designed to easily fold into quarters, so the moment they need more softness for their knees in their cat/cow pose or more elevation for their plank for push-ups, they can get it in an instant.

    "I have the Stakt mat and have been loving it so far (about a month). I have a repaired ACL and meniscus so my knee is sensitive, but I can apply pressure to it on the mat no problem thanks to the thickness. It's also quick and easy to store since I don't have to roll it up." —rougeandrojo, from Best Gifts Under $100 2022

    And hey, the company's a woman-founded small biz! 

    Shipping info: Shipping is free on all orders. Standard shipping takes four to eight days. Expedited shipping is available for an additional cost.

    16. The Book of Unusual Knowledge, which has 704 pages packed with all kinds of incredibly interesting tidbits, facts, and trivia including articles, anecdotes, lists, and games. If there's someone in your life who loves going into rabbit holes on Wikipedia, never fails to miss trivia night, or just appreciates knowing more about life, the universe, and everything, you can't go wrong with this. 

    "The Book of Unusual Knowledge was made for me! I love random facts." —Betherick85, from Unique Gifts They Didn't Think To Add To Their Wishlist

    17. Sherpa-lined joggers for anyone who could use a layer of soft warmth through the cold winter — what's more cozy than these + a long-sleeve thermal + a cup of hot cocoa in front of the fire?

    18. A downright hilarious little screaming goat — simply press on him, and he lets out a bleaty yell basically guaranteed to make them laugh every time they hear it.

    19. The magically delicious Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook because that series certainly made me crave incredible food, and this makes it easy for any fan to make delicious Wizarding World concoctions — like Treacle Tarts and Pumpkin Pasties — right at home!

    20. An adorable cat-shaped night-light that, thanks to its battery-powered changing colors that swap out with just a touch or tap, will bring a little bit more joy and delight to the daily bedtime routine.

    21. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker because a little music (shower-oke's so fun!) or a good podcast can go a long way make their daily shower even better than usual!

    "That speaker is awesome! My daughter and I use it almost daily (she’s 16 and her showers can go for an hour because…teenager), and it works really well. The sound is good, it lasts a long time on a single charge, and it really is waterproof!" —Mama Moo, from Gifts For Dads

    22. A windshield snow and ice cover to make getting in the car after winter does it's thing like, a thousand times easier. They'll be able to skip the ice scraper and annoyingly having to dislodge the windshield wipers, and instead brush the snow off, pull the cover off, then be ready to go!

    23. A set of three brush attachments for their drill because it'll significantly speed up the time it takes them to clean everything from the grimiest, most neglected surfaces to the easier stuff (not to mention save them elbow grease). Which means you're really giving them some of the best gifts of all: more spare time and more energy use in that time.

    24. A shiatsu massaging pillow for their back, neck, or legs because there's nothing like a gift that'll help relieve their muscle tension. They'll be able to relax and enjoy your gift day, after day, after day. 

    "I got the shiatsu pillow for my mother a couple years ago, and she still uses it every day and swears by it. Plus their customer service is amazing. It stopped working after a couple months, so I emailed them, and a new one arrived a few days later." —Christine B

    It has a one-year warranty, and even comes with a car adapter so they can use it on long, drives! And reviewers say you can turn the heat on and off if you want.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    25. A set of seat gap fillers so *you* can be the one that saves them from the frustration of dropping their phone down the crack of no return for the umpteenth time — or from their teenager accidentally losing a few pieces of popcorn leftover from a movie, never to be recovered.
