    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!

    1. Pop-up cards that don't just say just the right thing — they're basically a little gift in and of themselves.

    2. A few fun colors of lipstick from The Lip Bar, because besides coming in a bunch of gorgeous shades, the formula is packed with shea butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, and vitamin E to make sure their pout never dries out.

    3. 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.

    4. A pretty bamboo version of the Squatty Potty toilet stool (yup!) because A) it'll be hilarious when they unwrap it and B) it really does align everything in a natural way to make pooping easier and faster.

    5. A racheting leather belt — instead of having holes every inch or so, it adjusts to precisely fit their waist every single time they put it on.

    6. 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.

    7. A whole-grain, protein-packed pancake and waffle mix that you can either bake for everyone *or* neatly wrap for your friend who's really into exercising but also loves to bake, because it works as a substitute for flour.

    8. A handy gift wrap cutter so they can get perfectly straight lines every time, and *so much* faster than with scissors. The open cylinder slides over the roll of paper, with a sharp blade that cuts precisely where the paper comes off the roll.

    9. Some high-fidelity, nearly invisible earplugs designed to cut down on the decibels during all their favorite concerts and events so their hearing stays protected without completely muffling the music's clarity and sound quality.

    10. A pair (or two or three) of Bombas Socks because just like all your podcast hosts swear, they're incredibly comfortable, fit really well, and are overall simply high quality.

    11. A UV phone sanitizer because it can help annihilate a bunch of (bacteria) germies every night, even if it doesn't get rid of all the smears of grease on their screen.

    12. A bag of NeuroMints, which combine caffeine with l-theanine and vitamin B to give them a quick boost of energy that'll help carry them through the rest of their workday, workout, or whatever their day brings.

    13. A set of two magnetic glasses holders so your dad will finally always know exactly where he left his reading glasses.

    14. A silicone Frywall for the home chef who loves trying new recipes but detests the necessary cleanup afterward — they'll be able to easily cook all kinds of food in oil without coating the entire stovetop.

    15. 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 delicious caffeinated treat.

    16. And a ~water enhancer~ that says it optimizes the water (with certain minerals) for brewing the tastiest cup of coffee possible, no matter how they brew their morning cup.

    17. A silicone wedding band so your S.O. can leave their ring someplace safe while they do whatever, whether they're a busy mom, a mountain climber, a cross-fitter, a nurse, or just want a super comfy everyday ring.

    18. A pack of fizzy cleaning tablets for your friend who's always carrying around a giant metal water bottle or coffee mug.

    19. A pupper costume so your bestest furry friend in the whole world can try what it's like to be a panda, lion, bear, or bunny for once in their lives.

    20. A subscription to BootayBag, which will mail 'em a fresh pair of cute undies every month for 6 or 12 months (depending on the package you choose) and give them a little something fun to look forward to even after the holiday season's long over.

    21. Some Joe's Gourmet Fish Fry breading mix so they (or you, cooking for them) can make an incredibly flavorful feast that contains less salt and absorbs less oil than other fry mixes. And yes, they can use it to fry chicken, green tomatoes, vegetables, and all kinds of other goodies too — AND it works in air fryers!!

    22. The Safety Nailer to give them the courage to actually use a nail and hammer. It has magnets to hold the nail or screw in place, two elastic loops to make the gadget easy for them to hold, and of course the plastic shielding to protect their fingers.

    23. A tacky or just plain funny sweater from Tipsy Elves for anyone who you know will immediately keel over laughing the moment they open the package.

    24. A bottle emptying kit because it will let them get every last drop out of their favorite shampoos, lotions, and even food products like honey or that gourmet salad dressing they're always talking about.

    25. A securely latching tiny box they can hook onto their keychain (or water bottle or belt loop or wherever) to hold their pills so they know they always have them — or to stash their jewelry in when they need to take their ring off for a second, but don't want to lose it.

    26. A tube of Nerdwax that'll keep their glasses firmly in place on their face, so they can stop pushing them up every time they slip a little.

    27. A pack of two silicone microwave covers that also multitask as a trivet, potholder, food cover, and jar opener.

    28. A reusable silicone zip bag because they can use it to pack snacks and sandwiches, steam veggies in the microwave, and even seal up sous vide (if they're fancy enough to cook like that) — all while wasting significantly fewer disposable bags.

    29. The iconic Scrub Daddy smiley-faced sponge with a mouth that opens to make cleaning all of their silverware a simple matter of swipe-and-wipe. If this doesn't bring them joy when they wash dishes, I just don't know what would!

    30. Some stretchy elastic shoe laces so they can turn any lace-up pair of shoes into slip-ons but still have their shoes look like....any other ordinary pair of shoes.

    31. A set of two miniature spatulas — these reach into even the deepest corners of makeup bottles and food jars so they can use every. last. bit. of product. Which, besides making bottles and jars easier to clean out to recycle, helps them save serious $ over time!

    32. A ramen cooker because sometimes they just want to enjoy a hot, cheap, and delicious meal fast, with the most minimal dishes possible.

    33. A Beard King trimmings catcher that'll make cleaning up after shaving (their face, at least) SO MUCH easier. All they have to do is carefully grab the edges off the mirror — the corners of the catcher secure there with suction cups — and take the whole thing over to the trash can.

    34. An EZPZ mat, which is completely un-budge-able by toddlers. They still might drop the food on the floor, but at least it'll be just a piece or two at a time, instead of the entire bowl of painstakingly cut up fruit at once. Really it's a gift for the kiddo *and* their parents.

    35. A pack of Turbie Twist towels that'll wrap their entire sopping-wet head of hair in its 100% cotton lengths and hold everything securely with its elastic loop — meaning everything will dry faster — even if they start head-bopping as they sing along to their favorite morning playlist.

    36. A nearly silent fidget toy — it's small enough to slip discreetly into their pocket to help them get through work meetings, and quiet enough that no one will notice.
