1. A gift set of British chocolate bars from Cadbury, the holy grail of any chocolate lover living stateside.

A box that says "Great British Treats" along with full-sized Cadbury chocolate bars in a variety of flavors

Each box comes with 10 full-size Cadbury chocolate bars, with no repeats for maximum sampling 😋.

Promising review: "I bought this mainly to see if the UK Cadbury chocolate really is that different than the kinds here in the US. It is. It is and totally delicious, a great bargain considering it was shipped for overseas. But what is the real difference is the variety of flavors and options. Just reading the names made me feel like I was in that scene from the 1970s classic Willy Wonka movie where Charlie buys his chocolate bar. The presentation itself was perfect enough to gift someone. Too bad it was a gift from me to me! Can't wait to splurge again on this delicious box of chocolates." —Melinda A.

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

2. A ginormous Belgian waffle blanket to help them achieve their greatest dream: becoming a sentient IHOP special.

4. A jar of whipped shower icing so even your friends without bathtubs can feel decadent as heck while they're getting their suds on. Each of these comes with unique layers of soapy ~frosting~, in so many combos that it might actually make your mouth water.


Indulgence Spa is a Maryland-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in soaps, hair care, and body products.

Psst — I recently started using this myself in the Three Wishes Tea flavor (a combo of tea leaves, peaches, rosebuds, and marigolds) and the smell alone is swoon-worthy, but I love love love how it feels in the shower. It has a satisfying creamy whipped texture, but suds up when you use it so you get that nice satisfying squeaky clean feeling, too. It's lasting a long time, too (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors 😂).

Promising review: "Very delicious and very rich! I bought a set in the Black Opium fragrance, which smells just divine! I will definitely buy again." —invisible9

Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $15 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

5. A mini waffle maker to churn out adorably-sized, perfectly cooked-through chocolate chip waffles in mere minutes — not to mention hash browns, paninis, biscuits, and even (gasp) PIZZA. (But, you know. Priorities = dessert first.)


Promising review: "OH MY GOSH!! This little thing is amazing. It cooks evenly so far, heats up quick, doesn’t take long to cook. I’ve not timed it but maybe a minute per waffle. Also if you leave it in a bit too long it doesn’t burn the outsides, just gets them a little crispier. I used it for cookie dough which was worth the purchase in itself. I am looking forward to finding out what else I can make eggo-sized waffles out of, I will probably be giving these with a box of waffle mix for Christmas gifts this year." —Sara

Well this is definitely something we will always have in our home from here on out. It’s a little spicy and a little sweet. You can put it on just about anything.

Tiny macaron boxes holding pills and jewelry

Promising review: "Just received these cute little boxes and am in love with them. Very thick and sturdy plastic but easy enough to open. These will work perfectly for filling solid perfumes and giving out as stocking stuffer gifts as I don't have to worry about it being a snug fit/lid falling off. I imagine these would also be great for pretend food for kids' play-sets or for a kid's trinket box. Overall I love them, love their feel, love the colors and am very happy." —Mary

Get a set of six from Amazon for $6.99.

10. An odor-eliminating Vanilla Creme Brulee Pet House candle — this pulls double duty by not only eliminating smells like litter boxes, dog beds, and smoke, but also makes the whole house smell like the inside of the bakery.

A vanilla creme brulee candle

Promising review: "I have four small dogs and they have run of the house. I hated the idea that no matter how much you clean your house can smell like dogs because of the number of dogs. So I though I’d give this a try. Amazing! I got the Vanilla Creme Brûlée scent, which smells amazing. The dog smell was gone after burning this just once for a short time. The only downside I can think of is that it made me hungry!" —M. Hoffman

Check out BuzzFeed's review of the Pet House candle for more deets!

Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in 16 scents).

11. An assortment of international sweets so they can take an entire delicious trip around the globe without ever leaving the living room.

An assortment of snacks in crackers, cakes, and cookies

Each assortment is a mix of salty and sweet, and is curated so meltables like chocolate don't ship out in the warmer months!

Promising review: "I am amazed at how quickly this item arrived after ordered. Super cute packaging that makes this highly giftable. I appreciate the brochure inside that gives you the chance to rate each item 1 to 3 stars. There is a description of each item and a list of how to pair them with the right beverage. It is important to read these notes as one item in the box is best when merged with ice cream. The pizza crackers do have an unpleasant after taste but if consumed quickly they are not as terrible as others are saying. My favorite so far is a banana wafer and another wafer filled with a generous amount of chocolate and nuts. I also loved their cola- flavored version of Pop Rocks that were not dyed brown. This is delicious and would make a great gift to yourself or anyone else." —Cathryn Goll

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

12. An extremely nostalgia-inducing flameless indoor s'mores maker complete with two marshmallow sticks and storage for all their ingredients, so they can live their best summer camp life all year long.

A chapstick case with milk chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker flavored chapsticks

Promising review: "My mom and I are ChapStick fans, so I bought us each a pack of these. The marshmallow is clear, the chocolate is brown, and the graham cracker is tan. The color isn’t too extreme, but it will leave a little bit of tint on your lips. The flavors are DELICIOUS. Graham cracker reminds me of Golden Grahams cereal and chocolate is just perfect. I love the marshmallow best because it tastes slightly toasted." —Elle Ardee

Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

14. A set of gorgeous vintage-inspired dessert plates to make their delicious treats even *more* Instagrammable than usual.

A set of four ivory and pale green plates with vintage pink rose painted patterns

Promising review: "This was a last-minute gift addition as we had gone to the grocery store and her favorite mochi ice cream flavor was sold out. I remembered seeing a kit here and purchased it with less than a week before her birthday and it came in a couple of days beforehand. The best part of the gift is the ability to keep making the mochi ice cream- the mold holds up and it's easy to source ingredients and make our own custom mochi!" —Alisha

Get it from UncommonGoods for $32.

17. A mess-free cookie scoop with easy release to get you those *chef's kiss* perfectly round cookies they can easily stack for storage (assuming they don't just gobble 'em up straight out of the oven).,

Promising review: "Makes perfect cookies every time. In fact, I have been accused of bringing the best 'store bought' cookies that a person has ever tried (because no one can make the same size cookies every time). When cookies are the same size and thickness, all cook evenly! I recently left my scoop with grandchildren because they didn't have one. Little hands can handle the scoop and release action. This is my third reorder because I don't want to be without one!!!" —Avid Reader

Get it from Amazon for $6.29.

18. A teensy electric ice cream maker to give them all the joy of home! made! ice cream!! without the veritable nightmare of trying to figure out how to shove a hulking container in their freezer.

Whatever they don't finish on the spot they can pop right back into the fridge!

Promising review: "This ice cream maker is exactly what I was looking for! It's EASY, WORKS GREAT, and makes delicious ice cream. I'm visiting family so some nights have even mixed up a couple batches in the same cup (freezing the cup only one time for all) and can get nearly three uses out of it with a well chilled ice cream mixture! Love this product and definitely recommend it. Mine even came in a gift box with an easy pop-up bow, so you could just add the bow and give as a gift if you want! Pretty neat for a small, light weight one-person ice cream maker!" —Buckleybookworm

Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

19. A Marvel ice cream cone-themed backpack, because with great power comes a great responsibility...for them to sample every single one of these flavors, stat.

Republic of Tea

Someone gifted me this tea once, and it really does taste *ridiculously* like red velvet cake (granted, I am generous with my milk and sugar). As someone with very high dessert and tea standards, I don't think it gets much better than this.

Promising review: "Tastes just like red velvet. I'm not sure how, but it does. I love this brand of tea and this is just another tea flavor that gets added to the long list of favorite flavors." —Ly

An AirPods case that looks like a jar of Nutella

Promising review: "The minute I opened the package I knew I made the right choice. This case is thick and well-made. I get so frustrated when my case falls and the AirBuds go in every direction. Couple of days ago the left ear fell out the case and a car ran over it. That cost me $69+ so I decided to take care of that issue and get a case. I purposely dropped it after I put the case in and everything was in tact.. I’m happy !!" —Karen

Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

23. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker that doubles as a serving bowl, so they can make themselves a vat of warm popcorn as a base for M&Ms and Milk Duds for sweet-and-salty bliss.

Promising review: "I have had a Hotpop bowl for three years now through college, and I absolutely love it!!! I even got several of my college friends ones as gifts because they were so impressed with it! I have popped popcorn both with and without oil in this bowl, and made various flavors of popcorn with it. I love making my classic 'curry flavor' popcorn; I fill the bowl till the first line with popcorn kernels, a spritz of cooking spray or 1 tsp oil, powdered salt and curry powder, and then I shake everything really quickly and then place the bowl in the microwave for 2.5 mins. One of my favorite snacks, and so easy to make! Cleaning the bowl is also extremely easy, just a quick wash with soap and water, or chucking it into the dishwasher. I also love that it store flat in my cabinet and doesn't take up much room. Highly recommend!" —Ritvik Bhattacharjee

Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in 16 other colors).

24. A set of pastel rainbow silicone cupcake liners for the avid bakers of cupcakes, mini quiches, and bite-sized goodies who don't want to go through disposable paper liners 🧁🌈.

These are also super handy because they stay upright on flat pans, so you don't even need to buy cupcake pan to make cupcake-shaped goodies! They're also designed for easy release and are dishwasher-, microwave-, and freezer-safe.

Promising review: "I bought these as part of a 'most customers also buy' type of bundle that Amazon recommended. I AM SO GLAD THAT I GAVE THEM A TRY! These little baking cups are amazing! I’ve used them for cupcakes and mini pound cakes (yes, mini pound cakes)! They bake evenly and beautifully. I leave them on during frosting and remove them just prior to serving; this makes for a gorgeous cupcake plate! I’m going to try making cupcake-shaped jello treats next. The cups are lightweight, but durable, and wash very easily in warm, soapy water. I will definitely be purchasing more. They are a perfect gift for any baker in your life. Excellent value for your money!" —YaLanda

Promising review: "This pie bird made a lovely gift for my friend who is very minimalist. Because it is so beautiful and classy it is easy for her to display in her kitchen.

I wish I had ordered myself one at the same time and will most likely order another in the future." —catfisherica

I also like that all four have a different design which is nice to tell yours apart from someone else's!" —Liz Palmieri
