    1. A Mickey-themed waffle maker to add an element of magic to all of their breakfasts — especially if they're a snooze button enthusiast, I can't imagine anything else will convince them to get up., Amazon

    Promising review: "I honestly love this little waffle iron more than my bigger expensive one! Waffles are a fun tradition and I wanted to surprise my family with the Mickey shape. Every waffle popped right out of the pan like a Magic Kingdom dream. So pleased with this product; I'm considering buying them as gifts for family members!" —Amanda Schinagl

    Get it from Amazon for $22.90.

    2. A furry llama doorstop that'll live many different lives: an actual doorstop, accent decor piece, pretend pet, second opinion giver, etc.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "This is so soft and cuddly and adorable it might be hard to leave it sitting on the floor!" —Teeb

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $32.

    3. Expressive bunny lip glosses for keeping dry, cracked lips at bay and helping them achieve the extremely soft and moisturized lips they deserve — while also adding a subtle dose of color!,

    Promising review: "Juicy apple is like a cute berry color that isn't obnoxious. It took about two to three coats to fully get it on, but you can just apply one coat if you want it to be more subtle. About five minutes after applying I ate some Little Caesars pizza (with dip) and it still stayed on my lips. I'm not sure if that's because the coating was fresh, but that's pretty impressive." —Allie

    Get it from Amazon for $8 each (available in seven colors/scents).

    4. A teensy tiny aluminum Christmas tree that'll add a space-saving dose of holiday cheer to any loved one's or coworker's desk.

    5. A delightfully soft and round corgi butt pillow to make their couch the most inviting and cozy spot in the whole dang town.


    *squishes through screen*

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    6. A cute lil' chicky makeup sponge holder that'll give their applicators a resting spot to fully dry out — cause close spaces and bacteria aren't ideal!


    Promising review: "Best $3 I've ever spent on Amazon 😊. Love that my blenders can sit on my vanity and have the perfect place to dry." —Rebekah L. Stewart

    Get it from Amazon for $1.68 (color randomly chosen).

    7. A collection of succulent stickers for a Secret Santa or White Elephant gift that definitely won't ~succ~ — and they won't poke or prod you either! We love inanimate objects!


    Get a set of 28 from Amazon for $8.99.

    8. Or, if you feel like gifting a slightly more lifelike succulent, an adorable faux succulent in a bunny planter for a knockout cute combo that still won't die at the hands of forgetful friends.

    9. Incredibly endearing mugs that'll perfectly illustrate the anatomy of a parent's heart — because the holidays aren't already enough of a love/sob fest.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "This was a perfect gift for my dad, the man who already has everything. What he really appreciates are gifts that provide tangible reminders that, although his kids are grown and live far away, we still think about him and love him. As as avid coffee drinker, this was a great everyday reminder that we care and miss him." —Grey Elph

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $18 each (available in mother's heart and father's heart). Also available for grandparents, sisters, and best friends!

    10. A 50-pack of colorful message pills to write lil' sweet notes and remind them just how loved and special they are — Friend of the Year award, coming right atcha!


    Promising review: "The size of the pills were the sizes you find at the store! They are really cute! The pills had paper in them, enabling me to write cute little notes without having to look for paper and cutting it up. I was really relieved when I found out that the glass bottle came along with it too. The bottle really goes well with the pills. It would be nice if the cork cap was more secured, but I overall love this product and would recommend this as a great gift!" —Cmdrloli

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+.

    11. A blubbery soft blue whale that'll flip inside out and — wait for it — convert into a soft neck pillow perfect for weary travelers in need of a little snooze and neck-cuddling comfort.


    Promising review: "My daughter was flying alone for the first time so we surprised her with this; we thought it would be a cute gift to ease any nervousness she may have had, but we were honestly surprised at how comfortable and well-made it was. After flipping back and forth several times, the bear looked exactly the same (we assumed it would be at least a little misshapen) and the neck pillow was surprisingly comfortable and soft. I'm tempted to get one for myself for my next trip abroad, as my daughter is never letting go of hers." —Jennifer Pfeffer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.80+ (available in five animals and a log).

    12. A hand-crafted ceramic mug featuring a lil' 3D animal friend who can't wait to surprise them during the last few sips of their beverage of choice.


    It's microwave- and dishwasher-safe too!

    Promising review: "This is possibly my GF's favorite thing I've ever bought for her. Every morning she laughs about the little panda in her cup. SO CUTE." —KevinS

    Get it from Amazon for $10.77+ (available in twelve animals).

    13. Mini animal-themed cable protectors that'll ~chomp~ on the much-too-fragile outer layer of their charging cables, so they don't fray and stay intact — because cute and functional is the sweet spot we're always aiming to hit.


    Promising review: "In addition to the actual items being cute and functional, I love that they come with a zippered case — it's perfect for organizing cables when traveling. The entire set also comes in a sturdy cardboard box making it easy to wrap nicely. These extra little details make for a high quality gift that is still reasonably priced! I plan on ordering more for the holidays (one of them being for myself)! Thinking about getting a couple sets to organize the family charging stations, so everyone in the family gets an animal and we can tell the difference between everyone's different cords." —Shel S.

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $10.89.

    14. A set of wooden napping creature coasters for the hostess with the mostest that abhors the thought of someone messing up their gorgeous coffee table.


    Get a set of four from Amazon for $7.49.

    15. A cutesy ceramic happy cat mug + stirrer combo that'll please the tea and coffee lovers in your life who could also benefit from a lil' mood boost that only a cat-shaped mug can provide.


    Promising review: "I’ve taken about a million photos of it since I got it. Love it. Definitely a great gift. Since I have a mug obsession, you can imagine just how much I love it. Also, I’m not gonna lie, my favorite part is the spoon. It’s tiny and adorable. I recommend!" —AlyBanana

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    16. A pile of animal-themed stationery (they double as envelopes!) so they can go from a cute animal face straight to your endearing letter.


    Get a set of 21 from Amazon for $10.99.

    17. A heaping triple scoop of cat-berry ice cream to ~patch~ up any fashion emergencies — whether a shirt/jacket is too plain or there's an unfortunate tear that needs to be covered up ASAP.


    Promising review: "I had a hole in my favorite sweater and this looks so cute on it. Sweater fixed and twice as adorable!" —merriejayne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A fruit-tastic art print that'll immortalize their ideal type of party — a super sloth-y, chill, and hang-time party filled with good company and great snacks.

    Society 6

    Get it from Nemki on Society6 for $21.59+ (available in sizes mini to XL).

    19. A strappy lemon or sunflower dress to bring a dose of brightness to their wardrobes, because how could they be unhappy wearing such a vibrant pattern? Trick question: it's impossible.,

    Promising review: "I follow a fashion blogger for petite women and she wore the white one with lemons. I bought it and it fits perfectly. Every time I wear it, someone compliments me. The straps are adjustable too. You can dress it up or dress it down (with jewelry if you like). I bought THREE: plain black, white with lemons, and black with sunflowers. I even bought a pair of yellow, kitty-heel sandals from Talbots to wear with it. DARLING!!!!" —Valeri Pighini

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 18 patterns).

    20. Two-toned, heart-shaped Winky Lux lipsticks that'll steal their blood pumper and yours too — yeah, you're gonna need to buy multiple and keep a few for yourself.

    Free People

    Get them from Free People for $14 each (available in three shades) or as a set of three from Nordstrom for $30.

    21. A pack of kitty gel pens to convince them to ditch their computers more often in favor of handwriting, because honestly, these are worthy of all of their important thoughts and to-do lists.


    Promising review: "I am picky with pens. I like them to have that thick, smooth feel to them, so these are the complete opposite of what I tend to like. They have that scratchy feel to them, but they still somehow write so smoothly. I have never written with a quill, but for some reason, I feel like I am with these pens. Ink flow and deposit is great! The pens are sooooo cute with the little cats. I love them! I plan on buying one of the other packs soon! That’s how much I like them!" —Sara

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $6.99.

    22. An ambient Toad light that'll help bring their favorite video game to life and, dare I say, lend a ~power up~ to their lighting situation — plus, it comes with the very iconic 8-bit mushroom sound effect!


    Get it from Firebox for $19.99.

    23. Whiskered faux suede flats that are always trying to find the longest walking routes possible — yes, they're quite selfish and want as many people to notice them as possible.


    I personally love these so much and wore my pair basically every day for a year until the harsh NYC streets (and my harsh-no-matter-the-weather attitude) wore them out. :[

    Get them from ModCloth for $59 (available in sizes 5–13 and three colors).

    24. A set of gorgeous abstract face and hand earrings for a bit of 'tude — which probably reflects their personality — and an unique addition to their otherwise basic collection of studs and accessories.

    Promising review: "IN LOVE. Surprised with the high quality but low price. Also came with extra backs, which I really appreciate!" —Courtney

    Get a set of three pairs from Amazon for $9.

    25. A pair of delightfully cushy unicorn light-up slippers that'll turn them off from ever wearing regular 'ol slippers again.


    Hey, that's a lifestyle choice I respect.

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99 (one size fits most, approx. up to women's size 12). Also available as narwhals (both heated and light-up versions)!

    26. A smol cactus or bunny-eared humidifier to help combat heater overload and keep their skin away from entering terribly dry and chapped territory. Hello, breathable and non-stuffy air! Nice to meet you!


    It's portable, USB-powered, has a four-hour automatic power-off protection, changing colors mode, and a spray volume of 50ml/h (which equals an effective range of ~4㎡).

    Promising review: "This little thing did wonders for my skin in my office. I'm right next to a window so I often have to run my space heater, which dries the daylights out of my skin. This thing is easy to set up, well worth the money, and super cute. My eyes and nose stay moisturized and my skin looks better than it ever does in the winter. It's made for small spaces, so make sure you're within a foot or two of the mist so you can benefit fully." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.89 (available in seven colors/designs).

    27. An oversized rainbow striped cardigan that'll spruce up their usual tee-and-jeans combo and add a PUNCH to their closet.


    Promising review: "LOVE IT!!!! A lot cheaper than the boutiques I've seen it at. It's so soft and unique! I haven't seen anyone around me wear one like it! The colors looked just like the picture. I'm so excited to wear it to work." —Amanda Haithcock

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    28. A faux-leather Luna-themed Sailor Moon purse complete with the cutest lil' ears they ever did see — it's sure to add a bit of spunk to their every outfit.


    Promising review: "I get so many compliments on this bag! I'm in my late twenties and women in my age range approach me by asking, 'Is that a Sailor Moon bag?' It makes my day! (This is what we grew up with!) Very sturdy, super cute, and adds a pop of fantasy to my business casual look. It's small but it can hold my phone and its bulky case, lip gloss, wallet case, and a chunky set of keys. For the price, I highly recommend it." —Jas

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in two colors).

    29. Or magical (And sturdy! And effective!) Sailor Moon makeup brushes to make the task of applying highlighter, eyeshadow, and brow gel 100x more fun — makeup is really a superpower, after all.

    Specifically, the set includes: It's a Princess Thing Palette, six Lux Lipsticks named after each princess, six Super Shock Shadows, three Ultra Glossy Lips, and two Super Shock Highlighters.

    Promising review: "Such a beautiful set. I'm in love with the lipsticks — they are so creamy and make my lips feel beautiful. The super shock shadows are blendable and so creamy and smooth. I love the palette the most because everything is so pigmented and blendable." —Stephanie

    Get it from Shop Disney for $120 or ColourPop for $126.

    You can also buy the eyeshadow palette separately for $20 or the six-piece lipstick set for $42.

    31. A teensy tiny replica of a violin, bow, and case for Spongebob and classical music lovers alike, so they can break it out whenever someone starts complaining or just keep as a little memento.

    Promising review: "This is perfect. Small enough that it easily fits in my purse, so whenever someone is complaining I can calmly reach into my purse and bring it out and say, 'Shall I play this for you?' Gets a laugh 9 out of 10 times! Love it!" —Crystal

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two sizes).

    32. A mini beaded tote that'll be the perfect size for ~just the essentials~ when they'll be out and about for hours and won't feel like lugging around a giant purse.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This bag is stunning! I purchased the green and the color is accurately represented. It has a good amount of weight to it, so it doesn’t feel cheap. The bag is slightly smaller than I expected, so it’s more for evening use than every day. For reference, I have an iPhone 8 Plus and it takes up half the bag both laying down and standing up. The knots in the string look secure as well." —Britni

    Get it from Free People for $58 (available in four colors/patterns).

    33. Mini Tony Moly lip balms to pop into their stocking — which will then be transferred into their purse — so they can add a fruity dose of lip moisturizing and plumping whenever they need it.

    34. Festive dangly earrings that'll definitely know how to get the party started — because once your friend starts wearing these cuties, they'll find yourself right in the middle of the dance floor. Guaranteed. Be sure to keep your phone out to record the moment.

    You don't remember how or when, but there you are! Just go with the beat.

    Get them from for $30. Shop their entire collection of cute jewelry if you're looking for something different!

    PB Teen

    Get it from PB Teen for $48 (originally $69).

    36. A Pusheen stationary set to make their desk a ~happy place~ and not just a space full of stress and heaviness — you and Pusheen are here to keep them sane., Amazon

    37. An R2-D2 French press for the best cup of coffee in the galaxy — *beep boop* noises not included, so they'll have to make those themselves.


    Promising review: "This is the coolest thing ever!!! It works like a standard French Press, just in the shape of R2-D2. My friends want me to make coffee for them when they come over just so they can say they had R2-D2 coffee. It is constructed very well with a glass body. The press has a medium grind screen, which is perfect if you don't feel like grinding your own coffee and use the store grind." —Jake

    Get it from Amazon for $33.87.
