    34 Little Gifts To Get For Your Partner Now That Mixtapes Aren't A Thing

    Put down the cassette, make them a thoughtful Spotify playlist, and get them a nice lil' gift to go with it!

    1. A Mister Rogers magnetic dress up set to bring your shared fridge some peace, considering there's a war for space raging between their La Croix and your cold brew pitcher just inside.


    Promising review: "My 2-year-old and I both love this set. She feeds the fish and dresses Mr. Rogers in the different accompanying outfits. It makes me smile every time I see the sweet neighbor from my childhood on the fridge." —A.S.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    2. A fill-in-the-blank book all about their favorite subject — how much you love them.


    The book comes with a plastic sleeve for safe-keeping. Prompts such as "You deserve the ______ award," and "You have the greatest taste in ______," guide you towards some sweet sentiments. May I suggest, "You have the greatest taste in partners."

    Promising review: "Sometimes I feel like there isn't enough time to show your appreciation for the one you love. After doing some researching, I decided on this fill in the blank book. Some of the questions were a bit goofy and a laugh for us both, but I loved being able to fill out and answer the questions. It was a gift that he definitely will remember and it made my day to see how much he appreciated hearing all the things I love about him!" —Jenna G

    Get it on Amazon for $8 (available for 15 kinds of personal relationships).

    3. A shower wine and beer holder so they no longer need to live in fear after placing their shower beer on the gently sloping ledge of the tub.


    Promising review: "My husband came home one day from a long day at work and I heard him pop open a can of beer in the shower. When I asked him about it, he explained the 'shower beer.' After some research and a little help from his best friend, I found this amazing product on Amazon. Upon giving him the sipcaddy (just because), he exclaimed that I was the wife of the year/century/eon. I'd pay $13.95 one hundred times over to see his happy face and receive such positive words of affirmation. Plus, I can enjoy a shower beer/wine/sparkling water, too! Highly recommend this product for a spouse, friend, family member!" —Catherine Garza

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    4. A single-serve French press that is frankly the cutest thing I have ever seen. Now they have the perfect vessel for their one morning cup.


    Promising review: "I'm absolutely happy that I chose this little French press! It's well-made, very attractive, and perfectly little. It makes the perfect single cup of coffee. I bought this for my husband, and he's never been more excited about making coffee than he is now. It's easy to use and easy to clean. I would definitely buy again." —Jenny F.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.

    5. A New York Times crossword puzzle book to fill their idle hours with mind-strengthening fun. Do them together on Sunday mornings for maximum cuteness!


    Promising review: "I love this thing! The print is nice and large, and the spiral binding is super nice. The paper is still newspaper-y which makes it feel like a newspaper crossword without having to lug around a newspaper. I use erasable pens, and they erase great. The boxes are plenty big enough for the letters and the crosswords are all appropriately 'Monday' difficulty. Great thing to have! Can’t wait to finish it and move on to Tuesday!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48.

    Think they'll want more of a challenge? Try the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday versions of this book for increasing difficulty!

    6. A Big Foot air freshener for the partner who wants to believe.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.08.

    7. An under-desk hammock so they can kick up their feet like they're on vacation, even while they're toiling away at work.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.13.

    8. A baguette wrist rest to bring them a crumb of joy every time they type, even while writing a strongly worded letter.


    Promising review: "I'm using this as I speak, and it still cracks me up every day. Every time someone new walks into my office they think it's real bread — it's incredibly realistic looking. It is softer than any wrist rest I have ever had. I have carpal tunnel, and I'm in software where typing isn't really an option, so to have something that is incredibly comfortable and makes me smile every time I look at it is incredibly worth it! Don't underestimate the value in having something that makes the mundane a little more fun." —Daryl-Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three styles).

    9. A deck of unicorn playing cards for adding a little magic to their games of gin rummy and cribbage.

    Get it from MizSant on Etsy for $15+ (available in four sizes).

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $12.95 or Amazon for $10.52.

    12. A supply of squishy animals, because why the heck not? Tag yourself, I'm the silver sparkly seal.


    Get a 20-pack on Amazon for $7.39.

    13. A variety pack of Bazooka candies to bring them back to their '90s kids days. You can't taste one of these and NOT imagine yourself in low-rise jeans.


    The set comes with six Rings Pops, four Baby Bottle Pops, four Juicy Drop Pops, and four Push Pops.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    14. Some sprout bookmarks so they can still pretend like they're reading in a peaceful field even if you guys live in a sixth floor walkup studio apartment in the middle of the city.


    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $9.55+ (available in two styles).

    15. A book of 500 chair designs, because great design and sitting down are pretty much the greatest things about life and should be celebrated in the form of a coffee table book.


    I bought this for my partner, and he loves it. But that said, he does have an odd but adorable passion for chair design.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.48.

    16. Moon phase ear climbers if you're starting to suspect they have an innocent crush on whoever writes the push notifications for Co-Star.

    19. A Kool-Aid Man Funko Pop that could only make them say "OH YEAHHHH!"


    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    20. A cassette cookie cutter, because if you can't give them a real cassette tape, a cookie version is a pretty great replacement.


    The cutter is dishwasher safe!

    Get it from Bakerology on Etsy for $12.18.

    21. A set of silicone straws so they can sip to their heart's content without sneers from anyone passing by.,

    The set comes with eight rainbow straws and two cleaning brushes.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these! No rubbery taste, and they are soft on your mouth and teeth unlike steel or hard plastic. I wanted to quit using single use plastics and was looking for a replacement for my straws. I tried stainless steel and hard plastic. I liked them both but was very concerned about my grandkids (or myself) hurting myself on them. They are unforgiving if you fall or hit your mouth accidentally. These are perfect! Soft, big, and come with a couple brushes to clean well." —Anita J. Hensley

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    22. A cactus ring holder they'll like so much they'll want to put *several* rings on it.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    23. Custom stickers of your face (or your pet's face!) so they can bring you along with them wherever they go. On their water bottle, their phone case, their shirt, their notebook — there your glorious visage shall be.


    Promising review: "To start off, I was actually a bit hesitant to buy these. It seemed like something that could be easy to make poorly. Once I received the stickers and looked at them, I wished I'd bought more. They are amazing. I can't believe how great they came out, even from a somewhat crappy quality Facebook photo. On top of that, my friend who I gave them to was over the moon in love and couldn't stop laughing and smiling. Definitely made my day. A+, will for sure buy again." —SquirrelG

    Get 32 0.75" stickers from Amazon for $17.99.

    24. A pair of gold scissors to add an air of class to whatever they use them for. Feverishly cutting their bangs kind of tipsy at three in the morning? With gold scissors, it's chic.


    Promising review: "Super cute on my gold accessorized desk. Functional and just the right size (not large but not tiny). Slightly on the compact side. Also appropriate for left or right handed users." —Sandman Incognito

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98.

    25. A waterproof notepad for jotting down all the Great Big Thoughts they have in the shower and normally just yell out to you over the roar of the water.


    Promising review: "These things are awesome. You can spray water directly at the notepad and the notes stay there! My roommates and I use this to write dirty notes to each other in the shower and have found this notepad to be invaluable." —Lexy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.94.

    26. An adorable dachshund ice cube tray sure to make their tail wag with joy.

    One tray makes nine dogs — what a litter of pups!

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    27. An enamel pin so you can give them another little pizza your heart.


    Get it from OffbeatPaperCo on Etsy for $10.

    28. A set of tea snails, because every one of their minor inconveniences deserves an adorable solution.


    Promising review: "These silly little things are surprisingly handy. They perch right on the edge of a cup and hold the string of a tea bag or diffuser chain. Inexpensive and easy to store. They just rinse off if you get them dirty. Tiny, so they fit into a corner of your pocket or purse and travel easily." —J. L. Knox

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $5.98.

    29. An FM Bluetooth transmitter so they can listen to the killer Spotify playlists you make them while driving — even if their car is a bit beyond its years.


    Just plug this baby into the cigarette lighter of your car and you're good to go! You can use the Bluetooth to play music AND answer calls!

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my boyfriend as a gift. He doesn’t have a Bluetooth car so I got this in hopes it’d make his car Bluetooth. You guys, don’t waste your money on buying a car that’s already Bluetooth enabled. This works wonders! He has not had any problems other than having to switch stations. The sound quality is great and phone calls come in clear and the other person can hear you just fine. There hasn’t been any complaints from anyone he’s talked to about not being able to understand him. He loves it. He has had it for six months now and no issues thus far (other than changing stations as I mentioned before). I’m really glad I went with this one and glad that it met my boyfriend's bluetooth car desire. My car is Bluetooth enabled already and is nowhere near as great as this little gadget." —Izzy

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three colors).

    30. A 'lil bandana to jazz up their outfits. Whenever they wear it, they'll be thinkin' of you all day long — the gift that keeps on giving.


    Get it from Madewell for $12.50 (available in 10 patterns).

    31. A 16-pack of face masks for treating your sweetie to the gift of an at-home spa night whenever they please. All of the self-care without all of the weird sandals and having to be quiet.


    Promising review: "So many masks! Such a great price! I got these for a bachelorette party. All my girlfriends loved them and loved choosing the ones they wanted. I even still have some left and use them a couple of times a week. They are very refreshing and a great addition to your skincare regimen." —ilovedogsandbabies

    Get them from Amazon for $10.66.

    32. A stainless steel pocket tool to help them fend for themselves and deal with little tasks you'd normally handle for them because can't be there all the time.


    The multi-tool includes a can opener, bottle opener, 4-position wrench, 2-position wrench, butterfly screw wrench, direction ancillary wrench, knife edge, saw blade, screwdriver, ruler, and keychain hole.

    Promising review: "I rarely use tools, but on the rare occasion that I need one, I groan thinking that I need to go buy the respective tool which, again, I'll rarely use anyway. This multi-use pocket tool is just what a gal like me needs! The best thing about it is that unlike other multi-tools, it is flat and fits in your wallet! They also provide a carrying case so you can store it in your bag. They advertise a keyring hole, which is the one thing I would advise against, because the knife edge and saw blade are sharp and I wouldn't want this tool hanging around my body. But on the bright side, with the stainless steel material, the tools are actually sharp — a pleasant surprise. This won't break with average use." —Johann Christine Alcaraz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.52 (originally $14.99).

    33. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker so they can sing along with their favorite tunes while getting squeaky clean. It's only a matter of time before "Old Town Toad [Your Partner's Remix]" hits it BIG.,

    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for. I just wanna sing in the dang shower to my heart's content. Glad that it comes with a little D-ring to hang it up — suction cups don't work in my shower. Excellent sound, easy to use, and a great value. My poor dog disagrees, but is now subject to my singing." —emjoy75

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five colors).

    34. And a chocolate mixtape, because while it's very sad that the format is now basically obsolete, chocolate sure can make it better.

    Bon Bon Bon

    Get it from Bon Bon Bon for $12.

    You may not be able to give them a mixtape that's fire, but that doesn't mean your other gifts can't be!
