    1. A time-marked water bottle that might encourage them to stay hydrated and hit their daily intake goal.

    amazon.com

    It's also BPA-free and air-insulated to keep your water cold for longer!

    Promising review: "Yes, this water bottle costs a lot, but it is the best! It is very lightweight and easy to carry around. Because you can close the tip of the straw, you don't have to worry about the straw getting dirty. Because I am the type of person who needs to reminded or forced to drink water, and this bottle serves the purpose. It helps me stay on track. I wish I did not spend money on other bottles and just bought this one a long time ago!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    2. A Glossier Balm Dotcom trio so they'll never be without a moisturizing lip balm — they can stash one at work, one at home, and one in their bag.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I got Cake, Rose, and Original. All three are moisturizing without the sticky feeling. My lips feel hydrated hours after application and serve as a great base for the Gen G lipsticks and my sunscreen lip balm. Rose leaves a very subtle tint and Cake has the teeniest tiniest holographic glitters which I love. You don't need a lot so the tubes ought to last several months each." —Taylor M.

    Get the trio from Glossier for $30 (available in eight flavors).

    3. A rose quartz roller for giving their face a cooling massage in the morning and before bed.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been using the set for a month or so, and it is fantastic. I've made it a part of my night time skin routine. I like how this is a set with a gua sha and a roller. I feel each has its own benefit. I like using gua sha on my face and jawline, and the roller on my forehead and eye area. I don't know if rose quartz really help with anti-aging, but it definitely is a good and relaxing way to end the day." —Vix

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    4. A five-year journal with a beautiful cover design (and gilded page edges) to cherish forever. Since they only need to jot down one line a day, it won't feel like a chore.

    Amazon

    And five years later, you can look back and reflect on your daily entries!

    Promising review: "I have known about these diaries for awhile, and when I saw this patterned cover I knew I had to get it. The colors are bright and the gold is shiny! It's absolutely beautiful! All the pages inside were there and in the correct date order, and the ribbon bookmark is very handy. I will be getting more for gifts!" —Jennie Nichols

    Get them from Amazon: the celestial one for $10.13 and the modern one for $13.27

    5. A pair of classic Puma suede sneakers that'll be their go-to shoes year round. They're super comfy to wear and look stylish to boot.

    Puma

    Promising review: "I thought the color might run on my socks, but they don't at all. Very comfortable, didn't need to break them in at all. I'm considering picking up another color." —YVETTE765

    Get them from Puma for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and four colors).

    6. A cold brew maker so they can make delicious iced joe at home instead of spending $$$ at a coffee shop. It has an airtight seal for keeping their drink fresh for days.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Just add coarse-ground coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), let it brew for 12–24 hours, and serve. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our review of the Tayeka cold brew maker!

    Promising review: "Bought this for my wife, and now I have become a cold-brew expert. Easy to use, easy to clean, and makes incredible-tasting coffee. This process removes all the bitterness and is easily our favorite way to enjoy our favorite drink. For the price you have to pay for cold brew at fancy coffee shops, this thing pays for itself pretty quickly. Try this once, and you'll love it." —Mark C

    Get it from Amazon for $21.22.

    7. A 2-in-1 insulated food bowl by S'well perfect for meal prepping or bringing leftovers to work. It'll keep their food hot or cold for hours, and they can also pop the inner container into the microwave to heat things up.

    instagram.com

    This food bowl consists of a triple-layer, vacuum-insulated exterior bowl and durable Tritan inner prep bowl. The exterior bowl is condensation-proof, leak-free, and dishwasher-safe, and the BPA/BPS-free inner prep bowl is fridge- and freezer- friendly and safe for the microwave and dishwasher.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this bowl, keeps my food warm so I don’t have to pop it in the microwave at lunch time. Love, love, love it." —Marcia W.

    Get it from S'well for $40+ (available in two sizes and five colors).

    8. A pretty aromatherapy pendant to carry their fave essential oil with them at all times. The design just makes ~scents~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This necklace serves the purpose of being a convenient way to have immediate access to your favorite essential oils. It's also very pretty and adds a nice decorative touch to an outfit. I love things that have dual purposes. If you are going to wear a piece of fashion jewelry, why not wear one that also provides you with aromatherapy? I got the antique bronze, and it has a vintage quality to it. Not a heavy piece; very lightweight, which I actually prefer. Who wants to be weighed down with a heavy piece around your neck? This would be a great gift for a friend or for yourself!" —LBC

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three finishes).

    9. A sleek Quip toothbrush that'll actually make them look forward to waking up and brushing their teeth. It also comes with a convenient travel cover that doubles as mirror mount.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    Each set comes with the Quip brush, travel cover mount, a large toothpaste, and a travel-sized toothpaste. Then for $10 every three months, they’ll be sent a new brush head, AAA battery, and two different-sized toothpastes — this refill subscription is optional, though, so they can just keep the toothbrush set if they prefer.

    Get the plastic version from Quip for $25 (or $40 for the metallic version).

    It's our cheap pick for the best electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    10. A heated Shiatsu massager so they don't have to venture outside or even interact with another human to get some relief for that unreachable sore spot on their back.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love using this so much and use it every couple days just to keep my neck and shoulders in shape. It helps so much if I sleep funny and I can fully recover after using it for about 30 minutes. I also find it extremely soothing after a hard day at work. I simply put it behind me in a chair or couch while I’m watching TV for the evening and after a very short time, I just feel the circulation flowing and my muscles relaxed. Great design and easy to use. Well worth the money, too. It has an auto shutoff if it gets too hot, which is excellent because then it never gets too hot and burns out." —A. Brink

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    11. A pair of stylish computer glasses for anyone who stares at a screen for eight hours or more. They're designed to minimize eye strain caused by blue light emitted from digital screens and fluorescent lighting.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Check out our full review of these Privé Rexaux computer glasses!

    Here's an excerpt: "Peep the photo above to see how different my screen looks through them. They don't change the ~color~ (important, since my job is to shop for all of you all day, and I don't want to recommend a sweater thinking the color is different), but they do reduce the glaring brightness and just tone things down a bit. And when I remember to actually wear them, my eyes seriously do feel so much fresher and less painfully dry and tired at the end of the day. They're so lightweight and comfy to wear, I usually forget I even have them on. Plus, they're pretty damn stylish!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95 (also check out Privé Rexaux's Amazon page for all the available eyeglass and sunglass styles).

    12. A super soft pajama set to wear as a fancier alternative to the giant, holey T-shirt they've been sleeping in since college.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I will never buy another pair of warm weather PJs again other than these. I am a thirty-something post-baby lady, and with my crazy hormones paired with living in Arizona, I needed PJs that are cool and comfortable. These silky soft PJs have been going strong for months now through countless hot flashes and heat waves when it would get into the 80s in our bedroom. If you are a hot-blooded person and need to cool down, I can't recommend these PJs enough. My only criticism is that they are not magic transforming PJs, and I will still have to hold on to a few pairs of fleece jammies for the few chilly months we do get in Arizona." —Margery

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and 13 colors).

    13. An all-purpose Gillette styler that can be a trimmer, shaver, and edger so they'll have everything they need to achieve any facial hair style. Plus, it's waterproof so they can use it in the shower — super convenient.

    Gilette

    This set comes with one electric trimmer (runs on one AA battery), one ProGlide cartridge, three exchangeable combs (for different hair lengths), one battery, and an organizer.

    Get it from Gillette for $24.

    14. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey so good, they'll want to drizzle it over anything and everything. Sweet + spicy = heavenly combo

    Amazon

    Read our full review of Mike's Hot Honey!

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A sandwich....so delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    15. An Amazon Fire TV Stick for streaming all their favorite shows and programs on the big screen TV.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wish I would have bought this before anything else after cutting cable. It makes any monitor or digital TV a smart TV and even gets some local news channels using their apps. I would highly suggest to anyone to buy and it's worth every penny. User friendly, so easy setup, and you can take it with you while traveling as long as you have internet service and Wi-Fi wherever you stay. I plan on buying a few more for other TVs in our house." —Scott Stinchcomb

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    16. And a Disney+ subscription so they can enjoy endless Baby Yoda content — and much more!

    Disney+ banner
    Disney+

    They can stream movies, TV shows, and original programming from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and 20th Century Fox.

    Get it for $6.99/month or $69.99/year ($5.83/month).

    17. A rose gold detangling brush to smooth out their hair with minimal pain and breakage.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This does wonders for my hair and makes brushing so much easier. I have very fine hair, but tons and tons of it, which makes brushing difficult at times as it tangles so easily. This brush really helps with that and keeps me from having to re-brush my hair every couple hours. It also doesn't pull the natural waves out of my hair, like so many other brushes did. So my hair is wavy and untangled within a couple minutes. The ergonomic hold took a little getting used to, but it's much more comfortable than the usual oval paddle end of most brushes. It gives you more control, which makes it easier." —L

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    18. A bamboo cutting board with seven color-coded mats that'll make meal prep and clean-up a breeze.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cutting board! This board is the best of both worlds: you get a sturdy bamboo base, with interchangeable color-coded covers so you don't cross-contaminate! Plus, they even have cute little icons on them, so you never forget which color is for what kind of food product. Also makes for easier clean-up and the ability to use just one cutting board while preparing a meal, without having to repeatedly wash it between items!" —Pegasus

    Get it from Amazon for $24.22.

    19. A warm and shaggy throw blanket — a universally appreciated gift the whole family will approve of (including pets). This one is big enough for a couple to share so they won't fight over who gets to snuggle in it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a $120 faux-fur throw, and this one is so much better! I was concerned the lining would be rough, but it is super soft. It is luxurious (better than the picture) and so soft and cuddly. It is super thick but not heavy. I accidentally ordered two and am keeping both. Love this product." —K Shopper

    Get the king-size from Amazon for $59.98 (available in five sizes, 22 colors, and as a three-piece set with pillow covers).

    20. An Instant Pot (with seven functions!) for making quick and delicious dinners in three steps: dump ingredients in, turn the pot on, and serve.

    Amazon

    To specify, the seven functions are: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker and warmer. Check out a full review of the Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing to own for all the working moms out there! Its programability makes my life so much easier. I can put my steam buns in the night before and have it ready for breakfast for the kids the next morning. I can have frozen chicken cooked in 15 mins after I come home from work! I love this pot and will be getting one for my mom for Christmas. She has to have it!" —Stephanie Wu

    Get it from Amazon for $59.92+ (available in three sizes).

    21. A heavyweight fleece graphic hoodie (with a hidden zipper pocket for keys and phone) they can easily throw on for workouts and errands. The best part? It's made of certified organically grown cotton using a process that prohibits the use of pesticides, fertilizers, and genetically modified seeds.

    Hill City

    Promising review: "I ordered this sweatshirt in black for a Christmas present for my 19-year-old son. It is his favorite sweatshirt (and that is saying a lot, for a college kid that wears sweatshirts every day!). He loves the softness, the fit, the logo, and the hidden pockets to secure items. He just showed me the off-white, which will be his next purchase! I am very impressed with how it has washed up, too!" —Jillypooh

    Get it from Hill City for $98 (available in sizes XS–XXL and five colors).

    22. An absorbent microfiber towel that'll dry their hair faster and help reduce frizz.

    Amazon

    It has a button and loop closure so the towel doesn't come apart while you're getting ready.

    Promising review: "Why did I just now find these? Why have I suffered under the weight of a wet towel my whole life? This is absolutely one of the best things I've added to my life. I refuse to live without one of these ever again. That's right, folks — zombie apocalypse? This is in my go bag." —WWoman6814

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    23. An egg cooker — it'll make breakfast for the whole family while everyone gets ready in the morning.

    Amazon

    This cooker comes with a poaching tray, a measuring cup, an omelet tray, and a six-egg holding tray.

    Promising review: "Why did I not buy one of these sooner? My life is so much easier now that I have my egg cooker, and I have sold three other people into buying one since I got mine. We make a lot of hard-boiled eggs, and this makes it SUPER EASY — no more boiling water. You set it and forget it. My husband also uses it almost daily to make an omelet and then when the timer goes off, throws a slice of cheese on top, and it melts perfectly. I will forever have an egg cooker in my life! Best purchase ever." —Niki

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in five colors).

    24. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite perfect for beachside (or poolside) reading. Plus, they can download e-books from their local library and save tons of money.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm the kind of person who used to always buy the printed copies (I love the smell and feel of books). But I've got to admit this is a really practical way to carry around your books when traveling (it's really light and easy to take everywhere), and it really does feel like reading an actual book (compared to tablets and reading on your phone). The waterproof feature it's really just a wonderful plus." —Daniela

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    25. A makeup removing cloth so effective, they might be convinced it's black magic. It removes all traces of product with just water, and they can toss it in the wash when it gets dirty. Easy peasy.

    BuzzFeed

    This is our mid-priced pick for the best makeup remover at BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Promising review: "I purchased this based on some positive reviews, and they can't even touch how amazing this product is. When I purchased this product, I did so because I was tired of using mascara removers and washing my face and still having mascara or makeup on a makeup pad while swiping toner on my face. Well, that problem is now gone. This product seriously does what it says — it erases makeup! I could not believe the way it removed my makeup the first time I used it! You use it for a week, toss it in the wash, and use it again. I was wondering how it would clean up in the laundry, and it looked brand new — no mascara was left after it went through the wash. It is amazing and if you're considering purchasing it — do it! No more chemicals to remove that makeup!" —StaceyB

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    26. A straightening brush that'll make styling their hair a whole lot easier. For starters, it only requires one hand to use.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "For background: I do not have hairstyling experience, neither have I blow-dried my hair, and my hair looks like I went to the hair salon. Like many people, I read the comments before buying, however after trying it, the comments honestly don’t give this product enough justice. I have curly hair and I’ve seen professionals mess up when blow drying my hair, but with this product, I was shocked!" —Elizabet

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99 (available in four color).

    27. An enameled cast iron Dutch oven in a pretty pistachio hue they can use it to cook almost anything, from stews to pasta to bread.

    Macy's

    It's oven-safe up to 500°F.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $84.99.

    28. A ceramic cup warmer to save them several trips to the microwave. No more lukewarm coffee in 2020!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a very slow tea/coffee drinker, so having this mini hot plate is amazing. I can have hot tea until the last sip! Life-changing. I use it every day. I'm using it as I write this review. I drink more tea because I know it won't get cold and sad. My roommates all want one now." —PDT

    Get it from Amazon for $14.65.

    29. Rainbow stainless steel straws — they're not only environmentally-friendly but are also easy on the eyes.

    amazon.com

    Each set comes with four bent straws, four straight straws, one cleaning brush, and a canvas pouch.

    Promising review: "Got them to eliminate the use of plastic straws for environmental purposes, and they’re great, I love them! They’re beautiful and feel very durable and honestly make my cold beverage taste crisper." —STINAXOXO

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $6.99.

    30. A fleece teddy coat that's the perfect combination of style and comfort. They'll look photoshoot-ready but feel like they're wearing a blanket.

    amazon.com

    Reviewers recommend sizing up for an oversized look.

    Promising review: "I love the look and feel of this coat! Sooooo soft and snuggly, it's like getting a giant bear hug all day. I picked the camel-colored coat, and it goes great with tan boots and a T-shirt underneath. Pretty much plan on wearing it until spring." —MISum

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and seven colors).

    31. A waterproof speaker for listening to a podcast or an energizing Spotify playlist during their daily shower.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We've had this for a few months now and it's been awesome. The sound is amazing for the size, good bass, and battery life is longer than what we expected. Easy to use, easy to connect, and easy to charge. We mostly use it for the bathroom (while in shower, cleaning, or getting ready) but we've taken it outside when we've been working on projects and it works great for us. For the price, honestly I'm amazed! We charge it once a week and use it every another day for about an hour." —D dot O

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in four colors).

    32. A personal heater to keep them toasty warm, because it's somehow always freezing in their office no matter what season it is.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have used this exact model for four years now in my office for six to eight hours a day, every single weekday (I'm a cold person — sue me). No issues with tripping the breakers (and we all use heaters).

    This is meant to be by your side or aimed at your hands/feet. This is not going to sit five feet away and keep you warm unless you keep the door closed for an hour or more. This has been the perfect solution to keep my extremities warm without having to heat my entire office up. I even use this in the summer when the rest of the office has the AC set at a low temperature.

    Twenty bucks is well worth the FOUR years I have so far out of this and it is still going strong." —Steph

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89.

    33. A pack of colorful gel ink pens so they'll feel excited about jotting notes in their planner, bullet journaling, or taking meeting notes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Honestly, my family considers me somewhat of art and office supply hoarder (all in good fun) due to the amount of time I spend both shopping for the perfect utensils and using them in my makeshift art studio. As soon as these arrived on my doorstep, I ripped them open and tested out each color through a series of scribbles, doodles, and hand lettering just to immediately decide I have never had a pen set that writes so smoothly with such vibrant colors for such a good price! I already have them set aside in a wish list I use to refer back to my favorite purchases and they will be bought again!" —Emily Dibble

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $14.85.

    34. A pack of velvet scrunchies that won't pull and tug at their hair and will add a pop of color to their 'do.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I like these scrunchies a lot. They look exactly like the picture. The colors are the same, too. The stretch in them is good and it holds my hair without pulling or hurting. The velvet is soft and there were no loose threads or holes." —Noelle Deniz

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $14.49.

    35. A compact air purifier (with a three-stage filtration system) for catching dust, pollen, smoke, odor, mold spores, and pet dander so they can breathe easy in their own home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After having used this for a few months I can confidently say how great this air purifier is. With the wildfires, the air quality in Oregon has been very unhealthy and at times hazardous. Combined with the heat we have no choice but to leave our windows open or the air conditioner running. We also have hardwood floors so the dust, dander, and pet hair gets kicked up very easily. This air purifier has made a world of difference! No smoke smell in the room we run it in and I don't have to worry as much about my son constantly breathing in the smog." —4ngryhoeb4g

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    36. A pair of cozy slippers with a soft faux-fur lining to wear around the house or even outside to fetch the paper.

    amazon.com

    I recently treated myself to a pair of these and they are the SOFTEST slippers I've ever had the pleasure of wearing — I never want to take them off. They also look much more expensive than they are. If you don't want to splurge on Ugg slippers or just prefer a vegan slipper option, I highly recommend these as an alternative.

    Promising review: "My feet are always cold in the winter and these fur-lined slippers are heavenly. The lining is so soft and warm, and the slipper material is a beautiful suede-like material. They are well-made with quality stitching. I like the rubber soles so they will last longer and I can wear them outside to get my mail." —O'Hara Family

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in women's sizes 7–11 and three colors).

    37. A memory foam seat cushion and lumbar pillow that'll make sitting down for hours and hours a comfier experience.

    amazon.com

    The cover is removable and washable.

    Promising review: "I am now using my memory foam seat cushion with the lumbar pillow, they perfectly complete each other and transformed my old office chair into a premium orthopedic chair sold in ergonomic furniture stores. The lumbar pillow supports my posture and the seat cushion relieves sitting pain. I don't think I can ever go back to sitting long hours without these two. Planning on getting a second set for my dad as a Father's Day gift." —Mario

    Get them from Amazon: the lumbar pillow for $24.95 and the seat cushion for $29.95
