    1. Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning to use as a delightful stocking stuffer and is β€” appropriately β€” delicious on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. A perfect treat, especially if the gift-ee doesn't live near a TJ's.

    Promising review: "My friends were right. This stuff is amazing. I have been putting it on all types of food and have yet to be disappointed. While it is a lot cheaper if I were to get it from Trader Joe's, the fact is that I don't live near one so I don't mind paying the extra price here for it." β€”PAN66

    3. An Echo Dot, because who couldn't use a little robot helper around the house? They'll be stoked to have shopping lists, songs, the weather, and so much more with just a simple request. "Alexa, play 'I'm so excited.'"


    The Echo Dot can set alarms, make shopping lists, play music, dim the lights, tell you about the's a little scary how much it's capable of!

    Promising review: "I have friends and family who have made fun of me for using the Echo Dot around my home. Well, I gave a few as gifts. 'Why would I ever need something like this' turned into love with it the first hour! The music, the information, and the whole Alexa experience made her a huge believer. The same thing happened with my sister and my niece. They loved it. Now we also 'drop in' to talk to one another. I'd say it was a huge hit and based on my personal experiences plus their enthusiastic acceptance, I have to give Alexa and the Echo Dot five stars." β€”Greg C.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in four colors).

    4. A cold brew maker that'll let them save $5 on fancy bean juice in the morning *and* let them get an extra 10 minutes of sleep instead of heading to the coffee shop before work. What more could one want?


    The cold brew maker is BPA-free, has a non-slip handle, and produces four servings of the good stuff.

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I bought this for a gift for my husband who drinks iced coffee all year long. He says it makes such a smooth tasting strong iced coffee. He gets two drinks out of each batch that he makes. It's easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher. Durable β€” I know as I'm clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!" β€”rnnichole

    5. A durable Hydro Flask, because the best way of making sure someone knows you care is by keeping them hydrated.,

    Promising review: "This is a great water bottle. I tested it by filling it with chilled water and taking it to the beach. It was a very hot day, the sun was beating down, and the sand was hot. I had the bottle out the whole time on the sand for several hours and the water remained very cold. I've also kept it in a hot car running errands on a 90+ degree day and again, the water stays refreshingly cold. I bought a second Hydro Flask for my desk at work, and the colors are so pretty. I bought one in mint and another in raspberry. It would also make a great gift. Highly recommend!" β€”AB

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in three sizes and 15 colors).

    6. A Squatty Potty that may at first seem like a gag gift, but will *actually* help them poop better. They're laughing now, but after they take it for a spin, they'll come to you in tears thanking you.


    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years β€” I wish this had come into my life sooner. Every time I step off the toilet now I feel lighter, fresher, and like a new person." β€”MsNiters

    7. A Nintendo Switch Lite so they can play all of their favorite games on-the-go with ease! It's much lighter than the OG Switch, has a longer battery life, and can even be connected to their Switch's library of games if they already have one!

    Promising review: "This feels sooo much better in the hands than the bulkier original Switch, that I can't go back. Even though it's lighter, it feels more solid as the Joy Cons do not come off, and it doesn't bend like the old one did. My arms don't get tired at all holding this. AND it had an actual D-pad! I also do not notice the smaller screen when playing, at all. It's just a much more pleasant handheld experience, which is exactly why I go it." β€”J. fox

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. It makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, and gives an unexpected zip to dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." β€”Martha Ronemus

    Promising review: "I didn't know I could love my brows this much. With two swipes, Boy Brow makes magic. It puffs them up and fills them out in the best way. The brown shade matched perfectly. This will be my forever product and my top Glossier recommendation." β€”madeline

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in three shades as well as clear).

    Check our our review of this and several other Glossier products in "Just 9 Glossier Products We Really Love."

    10. A CBD-infused bath bomb, because it's pretty obvious that CBD is a craze that just won't quit! They'll love the eucalyptus and peppermint scent, subtly calming effect, and enjoying a little self care time.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my wife a few weeks ago β€” she was very skeptical when she opened the box and took it out, but since then she has used it every night and she absolutely loves it! It does help her relax and sleep better." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90+ (available in 14 weights/sizes and 21 colors and patterns).

    12. An Amazon Fire Stick, because we are living in the Golden Age of Television. The Fire Stick makes *any* TV a smart TV and will give them easy access to all of their subscription services. Rolling from Succession to Fleabag to The Handmaid's Tale has never been so easy.


    Promising review: "I am in love with the Fire Stick. Once I received it I plugged it in, and it popped right up already connected to my Amazon account and ready to use. I use my Fire Stick everyday and am tempted to cancel my cable there's so much to watch on it. I'm getting one for each room." β€”Tekeishab

    Get it from Amazon or $49.99.

    13. A timeless KitchenAid stand mixer that's not only a gift to the person you're giving it to now, but also basically to their children and their children's children. These gorgeous helpers are so well-made, they're gonna be in the family for many years to come!


    The mixer has a five-quart stainless steel bowl and comes with a coated flat beater, a coated dough hook, a six-wire whip, and a pouring shield to help you whip up any delectable bake with ease.

    Promising review: "If you're trying to decide what brand mixer is right for you, stop now and purchase a KitchenAid. Yes, they're more expensive than other brands, but they last. And really, a mixer is an appliance you should only buy once in your life (my mom still has hers from the '70s and uses it often!). Not only does this appliance work as a mixer (it comes with a beater, whisk, and very useful dough hook), but I also use it constantly with the KitchenAid ice cream attachment. The KitchenAid pasta attachment is also easy to use with the mixer, as is the meat grinder. This mixer does the work for you and will make cooking and baking so much easier. You'll wonder how you ever survived without it!" β€”Susie Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $279.99+ (available in 50 colors).

    For more info, check out "Here's Why A KitchenAid Mixer Might Change Your Life."

    14. A bag of Death Wish Coffee the caffeine-lover in your life will be over the moon to try. Maybe brew up a little bit after gift giving and watch as holiday cleanup becomes faster than ever before.


    Folks who normally rely on constant refills of normal roasts find themselves only having a cup or two of this with the same results. Be sure to warn the gift-ee! Death Wish coffee is fair-trade and organic.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my husband who is a huge coffee drinker and I figured he would be able to distinguish if this was a winner or not. Thankfully, the birthday gift was a hit! The flavor is really delicious and the smell and freshness when you open the bag is powerful! Will definitely purchase again! And the packaging alone is great marketing and makes it fun to give as a gift!" β€”lascanio

    Get it from Amazon for $19.96.

    15. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer to help them perfectly halve, de-pit, and slice avocados easily and beautifully. Anything that makes it easier to worship and consume their favorite food is sure to be a hit.


    Promising review: "If you even looked through these reviews to decide if you truly needed an avocado slicer, the answer is clear β€” your avocado obsessions clearly requires this. I will admit, you can do everything this tool does without it. You may lose a minimal amount of avocado by using a knife instead to remove the seed and cut it open, but this product is mainly for convenience sake. I will say however the convenience is uncanny. Simple to use, it cuts everything just how you want it, and is worth the small investment for the future of my avocado enjoyment. If you inhale avocados at an alarming rate then the convenience is well worth the investment." β€”Friendly redwood

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    16. An Instax camera for capturing memories and storing them irl instead of ~the Cloud~. First pic? A selfie of them and their favorite gift-giver (you)!


    Promising review: "I highly recommend this camera! I used it for Thanksgiving and everyone got a good kick out of it! Many commented they are so glad that they are back into style and love the photos! The film is easy to store, but it does take practice adjusting on how to take it. I will continue to use this baby from here on out!" β€”Song Bird

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in seven colors and with film packs).

    17. A bottle of Truff hot sauce to make their hot sauce habit a lil' more fancy. You'll be hard pressed to find someone who isn't jazzed on truffle-infused everything.


    Promising review: "Once you go TRUFF, you’ll never go back. This is THE BEST HOT SAUCE if you’re a fan of truffle oil and hot sauce. It’s like combining your two most favorite things into the most perfect combination. Excellent on many things, but especially on pizza. I brought this to a pizza party and the hosts tried stealing my bottle by the end of the night! I took it back, but I gifted them a new bottle the next day β€” you can’t deny food love!" β€”Steph in DC

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    18. An Instant Pot that basically anyone in your life would be thrilled to finally try. From your parents to your partner to your strange cousin who's impossible to buy for, this 6-in-1 beaut will do the trick.

    The Instant Pot's 6-in-1 functions include: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sautΓ© pan, steamer, and warmer. What a multitasker!

    Promising review:
    "I've had this for only two weeks and I swear I haven't touched my stove or pans. So easy to use and so many functions. You can sautΓ© meat, make hardboiled eggs, rice and beans, and steamed vegetables in a matter of minutes. The Instant Pot community is large, and there are always recipes to be shared. So simple to use and clean. I've made anything from perfectly hard boiled eggs whose shells just fall off on their own, to soups, to Mongolian beef, and spaghetti! I am so glad I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon and cannot wait to purchase accessories in the future to make cheesecake and other things." β€”yestfl

    Get a from Amazon for $61.10+ (available in three sizes).

    19. A customized pack of MeUndies for shaking their booty in style. MeUndies aren't just cute β€” they're also super comfy and genuinely the softest underwear I've ever felt!,

    20. A tube of Glossier's Cloud Paint so they can enjoy the easy-to-blend gel formula and adorable color that's made this one of Glossier's most beloved products.


    I use Cloud Paint in the shade "Puff" literally every day. Even if I don't do a full face, it makes me feel more put together and tbh just ~pretty~.

    Promising review: "I'm SO OBSESSED with these blushes! I use the colors Dusk and Beam. I love using Dusk on an everyday basis, it compliments my warm, light to medium skintone really well and makes my cheeks look so fresh and glowy. I like using Beam when I want a more bright cheek look. I like to apply the blush using my fingers. It gives my cheeks the perfect amount of color. GET THIS BLUSH! You won't regret it." β€”bittersweetmich

    The humidifier and diffuser is programmable and features an automatic shut-off function. It's also a night light!

    Promising review: "I love this little diffuser. It is the perfect thing to have on a nightstand if you like to use essential oils to help you sleep. I was having a bout of insomnia and someone suggested I try lavender oil at night. I am a convert. This diffuser puts out a very, very fine mist which adds just a touch of humidity to help your sinuses while you sleep too. The lights are soft and colorful and I imagine would make a great nightlight for a small child. It's a really great value for the money and I've used it for HOURS a night every single night since I bought it without a single issue. Love it!" β€”Debbie in WS

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four colors).

    22. A Vitamix so they can whip up delectable smoothies, soups, nut butters, and much more, quickly and sooooo smoothly. It's a splurge, but they'll be forever grateful!


    Promising review: "Dope blender. I pureed soup to a velvety texture in 30 seconds. Then made a lemon slushy. Super easy to clean and assemble. Fits under kitchen cabinet. I didn't think it was too loud. I highly recommend this blender. I was not provided with a free product β€” I'm just a dude who likes his new blender." β€”Bobby

    Get it from Amazon for $289.99+ (available in three colors).

    This Vitamix also won best high-end blender from BuzzFeed Reviews! Congratulations to the Vitamix!

    The mug comes with a lid and is dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Purchased this as a gift for someone that sips their coffee...puts it down...comes back 10 minutes later to a lukewarm cup, and heads back to the pot or microwave to heat up their still full mug. This mug will change their life. Hot for well over an hour! However, it's a blessing and a curse! They find themselves adding an ice cube to get it to a drinkable temp! Seems like a fair tradeoff to me, though." β€”Eric B

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 13 colors).

    24. An Oculus Go, a personal VR headset that will allow them to play games, watch movies, and hang out with pals, all in virtual reality. Ask for one for yourself too so you can hang out IN CYBERSPACE!


    Promising review: "I always loved the idea of VR but could never be bothered to buy a PC (I'm a Mac user). It also sounded expensive for a gimmick. At $199 with no other requirements, it's an easy buy and is set up in five minutes. I've had tons of fun and have used it every day I've had it so far. Great concept, great execution! I showed it to a couple of friends and almost everyone wants to get one of their own. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is just a casual user like myself." β€”Simmenfl

    Get it from Amazon for $199.

    Check out "The Oculus Go Is The Perfect Gift To Get For Anyone On Your List (Or Yourself!)" for a full review!

    25. A Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush to take them to the tippy top of toothbrush technology. Studies show it removes seven times more plaque than a manual brush β€” that's a lotta plaque!

    Promising review: "The Sonicare toothbrush is a work horse, there's no doubt about that. If you inspect the back of your teeth you can usually see a small layer of plaque. Well, the Sonicare toothbrush is your answer to the best at home cleaning. After about two days of brushing, my teeth were noticeably cleaner. My colleagues were asking me if I whitened my teeth. I can never go back to a manual toothbrush. 32,000 brush strokes a minute β€” think about that. If you care about how your teeth look, then this is a great investment." β€”Ozzy

    Get it from Amazon for $149+ (available in three colors and with or without brush heads).

    26. A Fjallraven Kanken backpack that will make them the envy of every music festival they go to from here on out. Or anywhere, really! This impressively chic daypack is down for any adventure they are.

    27. Belif's Aquabomb Moisturizer to treat their skin like absolute royalty. Aquabomb's cooling gel formula is mega-hydrating but never makes you feel oily β€” it's like giving skin a much-needed big 'ole glass of water. My family and I gift this to each other basically every year!

    Kayla Suazo / Via BuzzFeed, Sephora

    Aqua Bomb moisturizer is easily my desert island skincare product. Although I have dry-leaning combination skin, I hate most moisturizers because creamy formulas feel heavy and just yucky to me, especially under makeup. Aquabomb's gel-like consistency absorbs like a dream. It's soothing to stressed out skin in the winter and cooling through the heat of summer. I recommend it β€” and gift it! β€” to friends and family of all skin types because it gives your skin that bouncy hydration it craves without feeling oily in the slightest. I've put it on every night and most mornings for years and have no plans of stopping anytime soon!

    Get it from Sephora for $22+ (available in three sizes).

    28. A Tushy bidet, because isn't a clean butt on everyone's wish list? Certainly not a ~crappy~ gift at all.


    The Tushy fits most standard toilets, doesn't require electricity, and only takes about 10 minutes to install.

    Promising review: "My husband received this as a Christmas gift and has been immensely impressed. He’s been touting the benefits of bidets for years, and this is a great option. Easy to install and so far has met his expectations." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $79 (available in five colors).

    29. A Stila Stay All Day eyeliner pen the makeup-lover in your life will be so grateful to finally own. This is *absolutely* the tool that'll help them nail their cateye!,

    Promising review: "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack and stays on through sleeping and tears. It's very smudge-proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off β€” makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings, or drawing artfully for Halloween. It's perfect for everyday subtle looks and for getting more creative and wild. I can use this eyeliner for months at a time without having to repurchase." β€”Chick

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 9 colors as well as a micro tip).
