    35 Splurge-Worthy Gifts They’ll Treasure Forever

    Love may or may not be forever — but these gifts come pretty damn close.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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.

    1. A 23andMe DNA ancestry or ancestry + health kit that breaks down percentages of ancestral roots and associated health risks just by using some mailed-in spit in a tube! #science,

    "Ohana means family. And family means no one['s spit] gets left behind."

    Promising review: "I'm a sperm donor baby. I followed the instructions, spit in the vial, and found my genetic father. Life is weird but good. Thanks 23andMe." —A. Roos

    Get it from Amazon for $69 (ancestry only) or $199 (ancestry and genetic health risks).

    2. And an Embark dog DNA test so your actual favorite family member can join in on the fun with just a simple, hopefully-no-fuss cheek swab — it analyzes for over 250 dog breeds (including wolf, coyote, and village dog ancestry!).

    It also tests for over 160 diseases and drug sensitivities!

    Promising review: "Very cool. My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a Border Collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality a border collie. Come to find out he’s a shih tzu–pit bull mix, which makes way more sense." —dede123

    Get it from Amazon for $169.

    3. A premium synthetic down body pillow for unrivaled comfort and support from all sides and for every inch of your tired body — whether you're pregnant or just aching and having trouble catching zzz's. Cuffing season, who?


    Promising review: "Bought this pillow for my girlfriend, who has been dealing with back issues and insomnia for a while now. Although she's not preggo, she said this is the best pillow she's ever had, like being hugged all night. Still haven't gotten a chance to try it out for myself since she won't give it up — might just have to buy my own!" —BBCS08

    Get it from Amazon for $109.95.

    4. An elegant but no-frills wine decanter to majorly improve the taste of young and cheap wines — so you can sit back and pretend like you're sipping on some expensive, aged wine from one of Bordeaux's finest wineries. 🙌


    All you have to do is press the decanter onto the top of a wine bottle, flip it over, and watch the magic happen! Then you can serve straight from the decanter or flip once more to serve from the original bottle.

    Promising review: "There is a huge, very noticeable difference between relatively young wine decanted with this unit and a non-decanted bottle. It's fun to use and very effective. This was a nice recommendation from the proprietor of our local wine bar." —Glenn Neilson

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    5. Long-distance lamps that let your loved ones know that, no matter how dang far they are, you're thinking of them — and vice versa, of course — in maybe the purest form of communication known to man (and wifi)!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising reviews: "My son is stationed in WA and I'm in TX. My best friend is in AZ and I'm in TX. It is great to come home or walk into a room and see it lit up. I love knowing that even though they might be far away, they are thought of often. You won't be disappointed in this purchase." —Monica

    "My mother-in-law and baby girl use this to say 'hello' and 'goodnight.' They both get so excited to see their light pop on and it's fun to 'respond' by tapping on their end and changing the color to show they're there! It's perfect for a baby/toddler who doesn't quite talk on the phone but understands colors and lights." —Angie

    Get a pair from Uncommon Goods for $170.

    6. An ever-so-coveted Instant Pot — a totally fail-proof gift that's wowed basically the whole Internet with its versatility, convenience, and very manageable learning curve.


    Just how versatile? Nine functions in a single pot, including pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, cake maker, and warmer. Plus, 15 smart built-in programs, including soup/broth, meat/stew, bean/chili, cake, egg, slow cook, sauté, porridge, yogurt, and keep warm.

    Promising review: "I'm a 33-year-old single mother of a 12-year-old child. I work one full-time job and one part-time job. I love that I can make meals in the Instant Pot quickly with minimal effort and have lots of leftovers. I am also really big into chili, beans, and stews/curries, so this is perfect! I eat a mostly plant-based diet and the moment I got home with this appliance, I used it to make a lentil curry: it was so easy, fast and delicious and the clean up was a breeze too. I admit, I was a bit intimidated by the appliance, but I got the hang quickly with the help of YouTube videos. I have also made steel-cut oatmeal and it came out amazingly! No more standing over a stove for 30 minutes and stirring every few minutes. This has saved me time and has kept me from ordering out so much due to sheer convenience." —Sharon

    Get it from Amazon for $63.99+ (available in three sizes).

    7. A small but mighty movie projector to host cozy movie nights — with homemade popcorn, no debate — whenever the weather is less than ideal or going out seems extremely unappealing (so, like, all the time).,

    Logistics: 50" to 130" adjustable screen (100" is recommended), 4.95' to 13.12' projection distance (7.2' is recommended), and supports up to 1080P. Connects to Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku Streaming Stick, Chromecast, Laptop, DVD player, PS3, Xbox, and TV box via HDMI input; PC via VGA jack; speakers via audio port.

    Promising review: "My setup right now is bad: I'm projecting onto pieces of paper taped to a wall, but this little projector is strong enough to make your mind forget that the paper is there. It is basically a 4k TV when it's completely dark at night, in my opinion. The fan isn't silent and it will make my small room warm if I leave it on long enough, so it's not perfect, but for the price and the power it has, it was exactly what I wanted. It's the highest bang for my buck product I've bought so far this year." —Jonah

    Get it from Amazon for $82.99.

    8. A multitasking espresso station with a frother, glass carafe, and plenty of customized brews to make drinks that will rival your absolute favorite cafes — aka, beating the "expensive" part of caffeine addiction one brew at a time.


    Promising review: "We had a Cuisinart coffee machine and the difference is night and day. We had to mop up every day with the Cuisinart (design left heavy condensation in the basket access panel). Not so with this Ninja. No mess, no fuss. Extremely clever design with all kinds of capabilities and it's very easy to use once you get the hang of it — coffee comes out smooth and not bitter at all. Best drip coffee machine we have ever used. It is worth every penny we paid for it." —T. Deane

    Get it from Amazon for $97.86+ (available in two styles: Glass Carafe and Stainless Steel Thermal Carafe).

    If you're looking to ~truly~ splurge, this Breville machine has the pumps, grinders, and all the whistles — for a neat $559.94!

    9. A Tarte Cosmetics Shape Your Money Maker Vault that has everything you need to create absolutely fire eye lewks that apply beautifully, blend beautifully, and most importantly, stay beautifully — even if you have extremely affectionate pets.


    This set includes:

    Shape Your Money Maker Eye & Cheek Palette

    Shape Tape Eye Primer (the cousin of Tarte's hero product, Shape Tape Contour Concealer, so you know it's GOOD)

    Little Detailers Paddle Brush Set

    Promising review: "The brushes are soft and pretty! They do exactly as described and deposit color beautifully. Shape Tape primer is the best!! There’s no weird drying feeling I’ve experienced with other eye primers and the color stays PUT — I have four cats who rub my face and my eye color went nowhere. The eye palette is beautiful and the highlight/contour gives me a nice sunkissed look." —Rebecca P.

    Get it from Tarte for $69.

    10. A smart toaster oven with a ~snazzy~ convention setting that automatically adjusts temperatures and shifts heat to areas that need attention, as well as a user-friendly LCD screen and nine pre-set functions so you can cook and reheat with utmost confidence!


    Promising review: "Since we received it two weeks ago, we've used it every day for toast, pizza, crisping up leftovers, and everyday cooking. It is so much easier then heating up our oven. The display is large and easy to see and read. You can slide the rack into three different areas depending on what you are cooking or baking. Toasting items are for the top shelf, move the shelf to the middle and you can do items such as pizza, and for all baking you move the rack to the bottom of the unit. The crumb tray makes it easy to clean up. It automatically shuts off based on the timer you set and there is a warming feature too. My husband did a lot of research on toaster ovens and this, by far, was rated as the best. Temperatures rise fast and it cooks evenly." —Maria Jacobson

    Get it from Amazon for $199.95.

    11. A chic, roomier-than-you'd-expect 100% leather tote that always feels super loved and gets plenty of use, since it's perfect for schlepping all of your work/school/life things to and from — and you can't even tell what a mess there may be on the inside! It just looks so elegant from the outside!


    Promising review: "I was looking for a tote that I could carry my laptop to work in — the size is perfect for my 15" Macbook Pro. I also carry a small purse, a small pouch with makeup, and then throw my keys and phone in the small pocket inside. The straps are the right length to throw over my shoulder or carry low. I was afraid the leather might be vulnerable, as the color is light and the leather is quite smooth, but after a month of use it's doing great and I'm becoming less afraid of damaging it." —Brittske

    Get it from Everlane for $175.

    12. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite worth much more than its weight, which is barely anything – it has a glare-free display that really, truly reads like paper, up to 32 GB worth of storage, built-in adjustable light for easy nighttime reading, and a weeks-long rechargeable battery. Keeping up with all of the enticing new releases out there has never been easier!

    Promising review: "Love this product! The fact I can read at night without disturbing other people is a big plus for me. The screen, although small, is sufficient for me, and it is easy to change fonts if needed. Another advantage is that the word dictionary is very handy, and you only have to press the word that you want to search and it will bring up the explanation. Overall I'm very pleased with this device. To top it off, this the price is very affordable!" —Cervantino

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (not including accessories/covers/etc).

    13. Bose QuietComfort noise-canceling headphones to block out any and all disturbances that make your life a living hell, while amping up the sound quality so you're basically enveloped in your own private concert.


    This is our pick for best high-priced over-the-ear headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Promising review: "Unbelievably happy with this product. I cannot live without out these — I'm even considering buying a second one to keep at work. It is empowering to put these on and all the noise pollution just goes away. I bought them for home and hadn't planned on taking them to my large open floor office. I put them on and suddenly realized there was a very low and loud hum coming from the ceiling (air blowers, I assume) — now gone. I sit in my cubicle and feel sorry for everyone else because they don't have a pair of these. I tried other brands, but they were simply not properly engineered. Once you get the pairing 'dialed in' it is seamless. I use the button's alternate function of turning on/off noise cancellation just for fun to remind me how great this product works." —Claveman

    Get them from Amazon for $349 (available in three colors).

    14. Or a retro-inspired Otis & Eleanor Bongo Bluetooth speaker, handmade from gorgeous bamboo wood, so you can surround yourself in hella crisp 360-degree sound and dance around your home to your fave tunes all day long (thanks, 33 feet of wireless range and 15 hours of battery life!).


    The speaker features premium powered drivers and dual passive subwoofers to provide 360-degree sound, and it's also extremely lightweight and portable, so it's perfect to toss into a carry-on bag or backpack for trips/hikes/etc.!

    Promising review: “I’ve had my Bongo for a couple of weeks now, and I honestly couldn't be happier. I love it for so many reasons. I chose to purchase a Bongo first and foremost because of the design. The speaker fabric is gorgeous and the bamboo is rich in grain and texture. The brass screws make for beautiful accents and hold it all together. I've been using this thing A LOT. Every day it's been following me from the shower to the kitchen to the pool — and anywhere else around the house! And the battery seems to go on forever. I think I've only had to charge it once since I got it. The sound quality is great, especially for its size. Even at full volume, there isn't any distortion. Bongo hits all the points — looks, sound, and price.” —Courtney 

    Get it from Amazon for $69.87 (available in three colors).

    15. A soothing 10-motor massage mat for toasty relief from head to toe — the lumbar area heats up to 140 degrees in less than eight minutes with a click of the remote and there are three vibration intensity levels to choose from.


    Promising review: "Very easy to use! I like the versatility of the zone settings and varying intensities. The cushioning is quite nice. I lay it down into my lazy boy recliner and it is very relaxing!" —Donna Shreve

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    16. A Tatcha Pure Skincare Delights Set to indulge your skin in a luxurious four-step routine that hydrates, exfoliates, and plumps normal to dry skin — so you look like a ~glowing bb angel~ all year 'round.

    This set includes:

    Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil (a smooth, lightweight, and totally non-irritating cleanser made with camellia and rice bran oils that melts away even waterproof makeup and leaves your face feeling soft, clean, and residue-less)

    The Rice Polish: Classic (a creamy, water-activated exfoliant gentle enough for daily use — it polishes the dead outer layers of skin off with nourishing rice bran and conditioning silk extracts)

    The Essence (consists of 98.7% pure anti-aging superfoods and lactic acid to soften, plump, and hydrate skin, making all your skincare work better — this is pretty much the one skincare product I literally can't live without!)

    The Silk Cream (rich, weightless gel cream that gives skin the look and feel of ~silk~)

    Get it from Tatcha for $130.

    17. Soft-to-the-touch modal cotton pajamas anyone would be hard-pressed NOT to wear every second of the day. Going outside? Nah, that's not gonna happen anymore.

    Promising review: "Haven't worn sleepwear in decades and decades, but had no choice in this co-ed vacation cabin on the lake. Expected to toss and turn and get all twisted up the first night. Not for a second! Slept like a baby. And I looked great crawling out of bed, too. Taking a break from vacation just to tell you how much I love these pajamas." —Damselfish

    Get a matching longsleeve set from Amazon for $99.36+ each (available in sizes XS–XL and 25 colors).

    18. A classy AF gold bar cart for special libations on demand, whether you're chillin' at home or kickin' it at the office with coworkers in need of some boozy relief.

    Amazon, Nordstrom

    Promising review (for the first one): "Some assembly was required but it came together quickly and easily. Looks just as nice as other bar carts I've seen that are twice as expensive. It is also sturdy enough for me to feel comfortable putting my nice bar glasses on — I'm not afraid of it wobbling and breaking my glassware. Very pleased with it." —Mack9

    Get the first one from Amazon for $125.47 (available in two other colors) and the second one from Nordstrom for $149.

    19. A Philips Wakeup Light clock to make waking up feel less like climbing a giant mountain every day, and more like an actually pleasant experience — it simulates a sunrise to gradually wake you up before your alarm goes off, so you don't want to scream bloody hell when you actually wake up and/or inclined to repeatedly slam your hand on the snooze button.


    The clock features a colored sunrise simulation and 20 brightness settings, with the light gradually increasing between 20 to 40 minutes before your alarm time. You can also set sounds in addition to the "sunrise" effect: birds chirping, ocean waves, classical music, or FM radio.

    Promising review: “This thing is a game-changer! I got it because I got tired of being owned by my phone. It used to be the last thing I checked before going to bed, and the first thing I would check in the morning. No more. Now I can leave the phone charging across the room (or in a handbag even) and I can set the 'sun to set' 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes later. So I set it and I get in bed and read a book for an hour. Then the 'sun goes down' gradually and I go to bed. Eight hours later, the 'sun' starts coming up gradually — so gradually, that at the beginning, you don't even notice. You can set two different wake up 'alarms.' It doesn't even feel right to call them alarms because they're not obnoxious or loud. It doesn't jolt you awake. You wake up gradually. This thing is perfect. I'm reading more, sleeping a lot better, and I don't even remember anymore to grab my phone to check social media in the mornings.” —Mariam G

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99.

    20. Comfy as hell J.Crew cashmere sweaters that look polished and chic, while feeling like you're being cuddled by a fluffy cloud — or luxurious hotel sheets.


    Promising review: "I’m delighted with this sweater. It achieves the perfect balance between being tight enough to be shapely and loose enough to have a comfortable relaxed fit around the hips. If they extend the color range, I will be buying more." —Hils

    Get it from J.Crew for $128 (available in 11 colors).

    21. Minimalist Sam Edelman Chelsea booties that'll make any sane person ask, "why the heck didn't I own these before?" — and with a small, manageable 1.75" heel, even your clumsiest friend can wear these with complete ease.


    Promising review: "I've been eyeing these booties for over a year now. I finally made the purchase and could not be happier with them! They're true to size and very comfortable. I wear mine multiple days a week for 8+ hours with no issues at all. Definitely the perfect black ankle bootie to have in your wardrobe!" —morganl33

    Get them from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in sizes 4-13, in medium and wide widths, and in black and tan)

    22. A Furbo Dog Camera to help alleviate a poor pup's separation anxiety or just to simply put any dog owner's mind at ease while they're not at home — it allows you to talk to your pet, dispense treats, record your dog's day, and just generally keep you notified of your pet's behavior, mood, and health.


    Get it from Furbo for $249.

    23. A KitchenAid stand mixer for yet another fail-proof kitchen gift — unless the person you have in mind hates baking, flour, and all things joyous. In that case, do they even deserve a gift??


    Because these are basically indestructible, they can pass theirs on to future generations. It's really an investment for them *and* their kids...because you're just that thoughtful!

    Promising review: "It blends so well, even with thicker batters that are so hard on the hands and arms. Being older, my hands and wrists hurt sometimes when baking, as I do all the hard stirring. This machine has taken my baking from a long, sometimes sore process to a quick, absolute delight! I don't know why I waited so long!" —Verge1

    Get it from Amazon for $259.99+ (available in 44 colors).

    24. A solo-and-couples-friendly Lelo Tiani 2 with eight pleasure settings, great wireless range (you can be up to 39 feet apart), and the ability to move with you — the two SenseMotion modes mean you either tilt the remote to create vibrations or create vibrations that match the speed in which you move the remote. Ooh la la, date night just got so much better!


    Promising review: "Tiani is my first remote controlled toy and I am so amazed. I love being able to stimulate my wife while being across the room from her. The signal is strong and doesn’t weaken when we're far apart. Both parts are extremely easy to clean as well, since they're made of silicone. Really a perfect couple's toy if you are looking to inject a bit of excitement into your relationship." —Jon

    Get it from Lelo for $119.25+ (available in three colors).

    25. A Herschel Supply Co. duffle bag perfect for gym rats and/or people who love going on weekend trips. It's versatile, stylish, durable, and functional — oh yes it is!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Very sharp bag — I've received several compliments in hotel lobbies and airports. The shoe compartment is fantastic; I don't know how I lived without one before! I usually put my shoes and all my socks in it and it cuts down on clutter in the main bag! The liner also adds a nice touch and makes the inside of the bag much brighter — you can actually find what you're looking for in it." —WGC

    Get it from Amazon for $45.78+ (available in 37 colors).

    26. A one-pound (!!!), professional-grade Harry Josh blow dryer that basically unlocks the secret to conducting an at-home red carpet blowout — with 12 heat and speed settings (including air speeds up to 80 and 94 mph), your hair will be dry, volumized, and smooth/unfrazzled in no time.

    Augusta Falletta

    Promising review: "I've owned everything from the DryBar Buttercup to the Dyson Supersonic, and this dryer is something special. It's really light, has a crazy long cord, and is much quieter than the Buttercup. The best thing about it is the speed at which it dries my medium-length hair — usually I need to let it dry at about 80% but with this one, I dried my hair in less than 15 min at 50% dry. If you love to blow dry your hair and want a top-of-the-line product, invest in this one!" —FA

    Get it from Dermstore for $349 (also available in its original version for $249).

    27. A Fitbit to help keep your friends accountable on their New Year's resolutions to finally start working out regularly — they'll be able to see all of the "DID YOU GO TO THE GYM?" texts you send straight from your couch (hey, the accountability thing doesn't have to go both ways).


    Some snazzy features include: continuous, automatic wrist-based heart rate tracking to better measure calorie burn, simplified heart rates zones (Fat Burn, Cardio, and Peak) to help maximize workouts, sleep tracking, silent vibrating alarm, call/text/calendar notifications on display, connected GPS mode during runs, personalized Cardio Fitness scores, etc.

    Promising review: "I sleep better and work out harder! I've even made different life decisions based on the data this has provided. Love the heart rate monitoring during workouts! It even tells you when you are in the fat burning zone, cardio zone, and peak zone! It literally changed my life!" —George Walmsley

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in six colors).

    28. A portable HP Sprocket Printer for people who take a million photos that then become lost in their overstuffed phones — instead, why not have the instant gratification of printing out a special memory in no time at all, no matter where you are?,

    It prints 2"x3" photos or sticks from iOS or Android devices, connects using Bluetooth, and has a rechargeable battery. Download the HP Sprocket app (free on iTunes or Google Play) to customize photos with filters, emojis, borders, and drawings before printing!

    Promising review: "I wasn`t sure what to expect from a tiny photo printer, but the capabilities are out of this world! First off, the set-up process was a breeze. I like that this product has an app, which makes the use of it that much easier. The set-up was complete within five minutes, and I was ready to print out my first photo straight from my phone album. The photo quality is super too. It's literally the size of a smartphone, but has the printing capabilities of a top-tier photo printer. I am also impressed with the minimal design, so it looks sleek and trendy on my desk setup." —LaurenR286997

    Get it from HP for $69.99+ (available in two editions, two sizes, and two-in-one, as well as seven colors).

    29. A Foreo UFO that's the first of its kind — a 90 second face mask that uses gentle heat and T-Sonic pulsations to infuse active mask ingredients into your skin, so they penetrate deeper and work more effectively. Hello, a high-grade facial that fits into the palm of your hand!

    In addition to heat, it also has cooling technology to diminish the appearance of pores and reduce puffiness — no more freezer storage needed! Plus, you can also treat your skin to LED light therapy with three targeted photofacials that use red, green, and blue light wavelengths to refresh your skin. The UFO can do it all, if you couldn't tell by now.

    All you have to do is download the Foreo app (free on iTunes or Google Play), pair it with your UFO, secure a UFO Activate Mask by clipping the attachment ring, gently glide the UFO in circular motions until it automatically turns off, and then dispose the remainders of the mask under running water, and rinse off!

    Get it from Foreo for $279 (available in three colors). There are four types of Korean-inspired masks available: Make My Day, Youth Junkie, Call it a Night, and Glow Addict.

    30. A touchscreen electric air fryer so you can indulge in your favorite fried foods without the mess of all that oil — the only hard decision left is what Netflix show to binge while you get your snack on.


    The fryer features touchscreen accessibility to manually program cooking time, or you can select from one of seven built-in smart programs. It also includes a button guard to prevent accidental detachment of the basket. And it has a 30-minute timer with an automatic standby feature that switches the fryer into standby mode upon completion.

    Promising review: “Think an air fryer can’t fry fries? You would be wrong! I was skeptical myself, but all my doubts were wiped away with the first batch of fries my husband made with this thing. A-MA-ZING! Crispy outside, soft inside, and oh yeah, healthy French fries! We even did garlic bread in this thing and it came out perfect. When doing fries, you have to shake the basket a few times during cooking, but that’s really not much of a hassle considering what you get in return. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a healthy way to cook food." —kwest

    Get it from Amazon for $73.72 (available with multiple accessories).

    You can also get the raved-about Phillips Airfryer for $249.95 and read up on a BuzzFeeder's full review to learn more.

A Foxybae rose gold straightening brush that helps you achieve a healthy-looking, smooth hairdo in record time — infrared technology dries your hair evenly from the inside out, so your hair locks in moisture and doesn't frizz up, while negative ion properties seal the cuticle for a bouncy finish.

    Get it from Foxybae for $149.95.

    33. A limited-20th-birthday-edition Too Faced Then & Now Eyeshadow Palette for literally anyone who, at some point, has fallen head over heels for their gorgeously pigmented and delicious-smelling (these smell like birthday cake obvs!) eyeshadows — say hello to the ~original~ 10 shades that launched in 1998 (in modernized formulas) and 10 ~totally new~ shades inspired by the originals!

    Promising review: "I was waiting so anxiously for this palette and it totally delivered. The colors are creamy and go on super smoothly, even when I'm rushing and skipping an shadow primer. The glittery shades perform beautifully when using both a brush or your finger. There are so many options with these colors choices, from the neutral mattes, highlighting pink and gold shimmers, intensely pigmented glitters, to all the darker shades for defining your crease. I'm going on a two-week trip in a few days, and although it's a big palette, I'm totally taking it with me. It can literally do everything." —Sarah G.

    Get it from Too Faced for $59.

    34. A cushy but supportive Allswell Luxe Hybrid Mattress that might be the closest thing you'll ever experience to sleeping on a cloud — so soft and luxurious that you'll probably fall into a deep sleep within minutes. Sweet dreams!

    Promising review: "I am a pillowtop-mattress-type-of-girl and was very nervous to try this kind out. But the coil and memory foam combo is UNREAL. I look forward to going to bed every night. It has helped my back tremendously and I'm finally getting a good night's sleep." —Paulina Z.

    Get one from Allswell for $147.50+ (available in twin to king sizes).

    And check out a BuzzFeeder's full review of the hot-sleeper-friendly Allswell Percale Sheets in case you're looking for a perhaps ~safer-bet~ bed item to gift.

    35. Soft and stretchy Eileen Fisher terry leggings that have a hidden waist elastic and always provide a perfect fit, whether worn alone or layered underneath — and they're made out of a sustainable tree fiber that's knit in LA and cut and sewn in NY, because we're all for being environmentally conscious!

    Promising review: "Mind blown. I did not want to like this product because I have never spent so much on a blow dryer but the Buttercup Blow Dryer is amazing!! My hair is ridiculously smooth and I cannot stop touching it. I will be buying more Drybar products in the future. I could not be more pleased with this purchase. And the blow dryer is even more beautiful in person!!" —Spent2Much
