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

Gifts tried and tested by readers just like you, so you know they'll be a hit.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

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 ~now~. And if that's not enough, it's just really. darn. soft. and. cozy.

2. 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!

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

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

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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.

14. 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?

15. 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.

16. 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!

17. 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.

18. 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.

19. 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.

20. A miniature dollhouse-like model kit of a greenhouse, library, or kitchen that they can spend hours carefully assembling into a masterpiece they can escape to whenever they want, because it'll fit comfortably on their bookshelf.

21. A crepe-making set so they can make light, thin, delectable crepes exactly like the ones they remember from Paris — even on a weeknight.

22. An eyeliner with wing stamps — besides being practically guaranteed to speed up their morning routine (no matter their skill level), it'll help them get genuinely perfect wings every single time.

23. Some under-$35 sweat- and waterproof wireless Bluetooth earbuds reviewers say have excellent sound clarity — plus they're pretty darn sleek looking, too. Worried about the fit? They come with a couple different rubber buds so they feel both secure and comfy even if they're worn for hours.

24. A pack of reusable grilled cheese bags so they can make delightfully gooey, melty sandwiches (and even panini-like sandwiches, with veggies, meats, and spreads to go with the cheese) directly in their toaster, with basically zero cleanup.

25. A pumice scouring stone that, with a little light scrubbing, will make rust, calcium, and other mineral buildup disappear right before their eyes. If they've been struggling with water rings for ages, a genius solution like this might be appreciated even more than yet another scented candle!

26. A Kindle e-reader because anyone who loves reading (or wants to get back into reading) will definitely appreciate a quick, convenient, portable way to sneak in a little extra time with their favorite books.

27. A Baby Yoda plush to make them squeal with delight the moment they open their gift *and* every single time they notice just HOW DARN CUTE he happens to be.

28. A pack of hydrocolloid acne patches to suck out a bunch of the oil and gunk lurking in their zits until the blemishes basically disappear, or at least are somewhat diminished.

29. A beautiful Homesick Candle scented with all the essences of their home state, favorite city, or even treasured beach cottage for a dose of love and nostalgia each and every time they light it.

30. A 42-page Rocketbook Fusion reusable notebook that seamlessly bridges the handwritten and the digital: When they write in it with the (included!) Rocketbook pen, they can simply scan their words with the app to upload it to a device, then wipe the ink away with the (also included!) microfiber cloth to reuse the pages again and again. The app transcribes their handwriting, and there are even ways to make their notes searchable. Pure convenience for any note taker or writer who prefers to write by hand!
