    1. An incredibly real-looking faux fur throw blanket to give any home a touch of interior-design-magazine-meets-Winterfell luxe.

    The faux fur blanket draped over a couch, in a white and brown blend

    Get the largest size from Amazon for $132.99 (available in three sizes and 11 colors).

    Promising review: "This throw is awesome! Faux fur has come a long way baby! This is not your '70s single color FAKE fur. The blend of different colors is amazing. They duplicated the downy grey tones of an animals undercoat with cream in the mid shaft blending out to the dark tipped guard hairs. Very realistic and impressive in person. I would not wear a coat made of this material, I'd be afraid animal lovers would throw red paint or spit on me it's THAT real looking. 😂 It's soft, very warm and with decent weight. You can tell this throw is gonna keep me toasty all winter. Some customers say the underside is faux rabbit, It reminds me more of a plush soft fur type fabric that a child's stuffed animal would be made from. It's still good quality material and the color complements the long fur side well. I browsed HomeGoods, Marshalls, Tjmaxx, PierOne, BedBath and Target for these. We're in the throes of throw season so there's no shortage of them to be found. Yes this one is pricey BUT what I saw in the $40 to $60+ price range paled in comparison to this one on all points aforementioned. Most brick-and-mortar retailers aren't offering much in color choice or realism. If you're on the fence about the price and think you can find something as nice for cheaper around town...don't waste your time like I regrets and I'm not the type of person who would ever drop down a chunk o change like this for a blanket!! This fox throw looks fantastic at every angle, if it's jumbled up in a ball or strategically draped off to the side for an Instagram shot, it amps up the luxe look and is the final cherry on top of my living room.

    Stay warm in style my friends...stay warm." —Eppyvonpeppy

    2. A whole VAULT of Colourpop Lippie Stix for the person who could never (and I mean never, ever, ever) have enough shades of velvety gorgeousness.

    The box of pen-like lipsticks in pink, red, and brown shades

    They have a pen-like applicator that makes creating a sharp cupid's bow increeeeedibly easy. And the color payoff? ::chef's lipstick-applied kiss:: I have personally been told that my lip line was "suspiciously perfect" after using these!

    Get the box of 48 Lippie Stix from Colourpop for $79 (originally $99 and a $336 value!). This is on sale for cyber week — comes to only $2 per lipstick!

    Promising review: "I love this set of Lippie Stix. It is the perfect addition to my makeup collection. When ever I am indecisive of what lip color I wanna wear, I just play around with these until I find one that suits my outfit and eye look for the day." —Briseida

    3. A mini (but bright and powerful) multimedia projector to turn any room into a movie or gaming room. Just plug in a phone, gaming system, streaming stick (like a Fire TV stick), or laptop.

    The projector and screen

    A 100-inch projector screen is included, but you can also project it on a wall or even the side of your house or garage!

    Get it from Amazon for $92.96.

    Promising review: "Very happy with this projector. Even though the dimensions are listed, I was still a bit surprised a how small the unit actually is. Even with the projector 15 feet away from the screen it is quite bright, certainly bright enough for a movie outdoors, which is what we bought it for to begin with. I was also pleased to find out I can plug my Roku Streaming Stick+ directly into the HDMI and USB port which made for a very small footprint of stuff I need to bring outdoors to project a movie. All in all very happy with the performance and price of this unit." —Gary C.

    4. An Amazon Fire TV stick they can simply plug into they existing TV and stream all the shows, movies, and music they want at the push of a button.

    The HDMI stick and remote

    Use the voice button to find shows, launch apps, search for type of movie ("Alexa find suspense thrillers") OR EVEN ORDER A PIZZA from Domino's!

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99it's 30% off for cyber week!

    Promising review: "After months and months of debate. I finally decided to drop cable and go 100% streaming. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner. This device provides you with many apps and ways to watch a lot of TV, movies, news, sports, and local programming. I haven't fully dug into all the apps. But so far I'm highly satisfied. The set up was easy and I can always find something to watch. I can't believe I was paying Comcast up to $200 monthly for the same shows. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️" —Greg

    5. A Hamilton Beach panini press that'll create deliciously brown, crispy outsides and gooey, noncrushed insides for the ultimate sandwich every time. Or the ultimate wrap, quesadilla, *croissandwich*, or anything else that floats their boat.

    The hinged panini press with a sandwich with grill marks inside

    Flips upright to store, so it won't take up a ton of counter space, and the nonstick top and bottom plates will ensure all the cheese ends up on your sandwich, NOT burnt on the plates.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "Whether you are a college student, single urbanite, panini lover, or just want a questionable gift, you needn't look any further than this. You may think now that you could have no conceivable need for a panini press, but with some culinary creativity it can become a hugely versatile tool. Other presses do more and maybe do it better, but those can exceed $150 for the same overall effect. I love mine and I recommend that you get one as well." —andrewn2468

    6. A gold-filled initial ring you can stack up or across to spell out your monogram or any word, bringing "talking with your hands" to the next level.

    Hand with four rings spelling out the word Hope

    Get them from Bychari or from Amazon for $60 each (available in all 26 letters and in ring sizes 5–9)

    Bychari is a Black woman-owned business based in Los Angeles. Everything is handmade, and you can even get custom pieces with initials and diamonds. PLUS they make the vote necklace Michelle Obama wore during the Democratic National Convention!

    This was one of Oprah's Favorite Things 2020!

    7. A 12-pound weighted blanket that'll feel just like a soothing hug for an added dose of security. And unlike other weighted versions, this has a soft and nubby duvet cover for fully customizable relaxation.

    The blanket and cover

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in six colors and 13 sizes/weights)

    Promising review: "After looking in to several different weighted blankets, I bit the bullet and ordered this 15 pound one. I was hesitant just because I had never used one and didn't want to be disappointed. I AM NOT! This blanket is tremendous! First off, the quality is much better than I had thought. It has several ties that attach the blanket to the cover on the inside, then zips up down one side. The blanket doesn't move inside the cover at all. Most importantly, I can't feel the beads at all. They are so tiny that you can't feel the individual beads between the layers of fabric. Now to my first use, heavenly! I have always pulled covers up over me, even when not cold, because I just like the feel. I had no idea that what I was really wanting was this weight! I put it over me while watching tv or in bed and it just feels secure-safe. No other way to describe it. My 21 year old son asked if he could try it and he loved it as well. I'm pretty sure he is going to be ordering one for himself. Even my husband snatched it from me last night and used it while watching TV. Short end of it, if you are thinking of buying a weighted blanket, I HIGHLY recommend this one. I haven't had it long enough to speak of the long will it last, will the beads ever leak, etc...but from what I can tell, it's a good as it gets." —Stacie

    8. A pair of leather touchscreen gloves with zipper accents for your fashionista friend who can never decide between staying warm and texting you back.

    The black leather gloves

    The white media center with a hinged record player top and remote

    Get it from Amazon for $119+ (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "We purchased this for my father-in-law, age 92, and wanted simplicity for him to be able to digitize his phonographs which is something he wanted to do. This was not only simple for him to use it also had GREAT SOUND. We were amazed. It really made the old phonographs some awesome. We thought we'd have to connect to external speakers to give it better sound (which the unit has connections for external speakers if you desire to do so)...but that was not necessary. The speakers delivered fine sound. We were very happy with this purchase. We will probably order one for ourselves. This 8-in-1 records to USB. We are very pleased." —Janine

    11. A (thinner! waterproof!) Kindle Paperwhite with a glare-free screen so they feel like they're reading an *actual* book — without having to have to schlep around a heavy 1,000-page volume (looking at you, A Song of Ice and Fire).

    A hand holding the kindle in black in a body of water

    Personal note: I love the last edition of the Kindle Paperwhite so much. It's SO LIGHT that I keep it in my bag at all times — you never know when you're gonna have a spare 15 minutes for a chapter or two.

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four colors).

    PSST! Right now, for the same price, you get three months of Kindle Unlimited included!

    Promising review: "What would I do without my Kindle? I use it all the time, and really enjoy the convenience of the built-in light and the touch screen. I also love the fact that I can quickly look up a word I don't yet know (especially for medieval historical fiction). I've been a voracious reader my entire life, and never thought I would go so smoothly from paper to an electronic book. One of the best things I've ever done." —Infomapper

    The organic bamboo resists mold and bacteria, and it's expandable up to 43" to fit most tubs (including clawfoot tubs!).

    Get it from Amazon for $44.97 (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "This caddy has been a great addition to my bath time ritual. I feel more comfortable bringing my iPad and iPhone into the bath as the caddy provides secure spots for them so I can catch up on my favorite show while sipping my favorite beverage. It is sturdy and has compartments for everything. Plus, I love the gray color — matches my gray bathroom perfectly!" —Meredith

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

    Promising review: "I bought this for daughter-in-law and my wife had such a fit over it, I bought one for her too. She has had it threeweeks now and hasn't stopped telling me how much she loves it. Prints a very nice picture and there was nothing disappointing about the picture or the printer. We love that it has print-sensitive paper, doesn't require an ink cartridge and works by Bluetooth so a cable isn't necessary. What a little gem! Brilliant idea and product!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Two years ago we rescued our redbone hound from our humane society. He has been a special dog and a wonderful addition to our empty nest.

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in sizes XXS–5X and 13 colors)

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying, my husband says that I am obsessed with coats. Out of probably 20 winter coats, this is now my absolute favorite! I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this coat; I love everything about it! The quality is outstanding! I have had every expensive brand-name winter coat, but have never ever had one that has kept me this warm! I I'm not even looking forward to the warmer months because I don't want to put this coat away!! Every time I wear it, I get at least one, 'I love your coat!'" —Suzi Linthorst

    Get the six-quart size from Amazon for $149.95 (also available in three- and eight-quart sizes).

    Promising review: "I have had the Duo and it was great, but this bad boy is EVERYTHING! It has a large digital display. It has a single dial for setting everything. It auto seals, unlike all of the previous models which you have to remember to turn to vent or seal. There is a button to release the pressure — also unlike all of the previous models. There are more options within each of the settings. It has additional presets like cake, egg, sterilize, and ULTRA. The Ultra function allows you to set an exact temperature and with that you can do sous vide cooking. This is the only model to have a cooking graph indicator. It has a strip of stainless on the handle which give it an extra touch of class — again unlike any other model. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Ultra — so much so I have two now. I have cooked beef stew, chili, chicken noodle soup, pork ribs, egg bites, sous vide ribeye steak (OH MY HEAVENS! Best steak I ever ate, and I have eaten a LOT of ribeyes) and the list goes on and on. The price is well worth the investment. You will not be disappointed. The company has a great reputation and has great customer service as well." —ADW

    19. A Foxybae straightening hair brush with tourmaline ceramic technology to sleekify, prevent frizz, and up the shine level in just a few quick strokes — without ~flattening~ any volume.

    Get it from Foxybae for $149.95.

    Promising review: "It's faster than a flat iron, it doesn't leave a burning hair smell it gives you volume. I have waved hair and very thin so it gets tangled a lot and with this brush, it was the easiest and fastest way I've ever done my hair. Recommend 100%." —Solymar

    Reviewers with hair from straight to wavy to 4B and 4C have all left great reviews for this brush.

    20. A Yedi air fryer so you can make deliciously crunchy foods like wings, reheat fries back to their crispy perfection, dehydrate foods, and even make a whole *rotisserie chicken* without dealing with hot oil.

    Promising review: "I like that this can do soon many things! I had a regular air fryer but this is like a Super Air Fryer! It can dehydrate food, rotisserie cook, air fry, roast, bake and all the accessories are amazing! Very happy. Forget a normal oven the future of cooking is here!" —Alyssa Kaleda

    This was one of Oprah's Favorite Things 2020!

    21. A sampler kit of aperitifs perfect for sipping on the rocks or making into cocktails or spritzes, because everyday bubbly celebrations are a gift unto themselves.

    The four bottles

    It comes with two 200-ml bottles of the following flavors: citrus flower, rose rosé, bitter clove, and lemon lavener.

    Get the sampler from Haus for $40.

    Promising review: "I love the opportunity to try all the flavors prior to investing in the large bottle, although my first large bottle clove was fantastic! I can see where some flavors might be more delightful based on season. I also like the idea of a taste test, comparing all four side by side. The sampler bottle size is generous; small but gets the job done. I love the opportunity to try all then gift by mail or as a hostess gift." —Cindi O.

    Order by 12/12 for ground delivery, or as late as the 21st with expedited shipping.

    22. A pair of knit sneaks made from recycled ocean and single-use plastics for a green gift that's also really darn stylish and comfy.

    Get them from Greats for $119 (available in sizes 6–10 and three colors).

    Standard delivery takes 3-6 business days.

    23. A board of wizard's chess for spontaneous (and ruthless) games.

    The game set which looks exactly like the set in the first Harry Potter movie

    "That's totally barbaric."

    "That's Wizard's chess."

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    Promising review: "I bought this chess set for my son, for Christmas. Not only was he thrilled to receive a replica of the set from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, but he (a 13-yr-old) spent time admiring the set. The pieces are a plastic with speckles, to make it look like stone, and the board is glossy. He was impressed that the pieces came in organza bags printed with gold foil 'Harry Potter.' I am actually thinking of buying a second set, for my younger son, and I wasn't exciting about spending more than $30 the first time, but it was well worth the $45 I paid." —Rose

    The gold over-ear headphones

    I have these and use them all the time at work — I like that they don't overheat my ears, and sometimes I forget I'm in an open floor plan and just jam out with some ridiculous head-bobbing dancing.

    Get them from Amazon for $159.95+ (available in nine colors).

    Promising review: "These headphones are amazing! The sound is great and clear, they get loud, noise canceling when music is playing, basically noise canceling even when music isn’t playing. They are comfortable except after a few hours of constant use they start to hurt your ears but that is like any over ear headphones. The battery life also lasts soooo long, they are great headphones, I definitely recommend!" —Dixie Freeman

    These also won best $$$ wireless headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    30. A countertop Aerogarden Harvest hydroponic garden for growing all the herbs you want (no backyard required). And thanks to the LED grow lights, plus a watering-reminding system, no green thumb required either.

    The Aerogarden in white growing herbs

    The grow lights are energy efficient (aka they turn on and off automatically), and it tells them when to water (and feed with the included Miracle-Gro plant food!) their baby greens, so these herbs'll basically grow themselves. The system comes with seed pods to grow Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, and Thai basil. Y U M! It can grow up to six plants at a time.

    They can also swap out with other seed pods (hello salad greens and heirloom cherry tomatoes), or even get a grow-anything kit and use what seeds you like!

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    Promising review: "I am very happy with my Aerogarden. I had purchased a similar one for my mother, and she had a nice time growing veggies and herbs in her kitchen, so I bought one for myself, and I am happy with how fast my seeds sprouted and how fast they grow. It's nice to have a gardening option even when it's cold outside or when you run out of garden space, and you just want to have some nice little herbs for cooking or salad greens. I like the timer, and the set up was simple. This is a particularly good idea for people who live in an apartment or people who have a constant itch to garden even when the weather is not conducive. I was able to save my garden space outside for fruits and veggies and plant my herbs with the Aerogarden. This is a worthy purchase." —Primemama

    31. A levitating moon lamp to add a touch of truly out-of-this-world magic to their home.

    The moon lamp (complete with crater details) glowing on a side table

    It's made by 3D printer for a perfectly seamless look.

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99.

    Promising review: "I love this levitating moon and use it as a light on my end table in my bedroom. Do not get discouraged, it will float, start out about two inches above the base in the center. The LED is bright enough to read from and mine has never stopped rotating. You can turn the LED light on or off by pressing the switch on the wooden base. Anyone who has seen it is amazed and asks me where I got it." —Neil E.

    32. A silicone face-cleaning brush that'll be like treating them to a whole year's worth of facials. It vibrates to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil, timing the process so they can get the whole job done in 60 seconds.

    Me using the Luna 2 on my face with face cleaner lathered on, with text "makeup, dead skin cells, excess oil, grime, etc. All gone in 60 seconds", and me showing the device in my hand

    Oh look that's me! I LOVE my Foreo and use it LIT'RALLY every day — it really works!

    Get it from Foreo for $119 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it." —hine0108

    Check out my review of the Luna Mini 2 for all the info!

    33. A Philips Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush with four modes, three intensities, and three different brush heads so they can customize their cleaning to their dental needs.

    And it has sensors to show on a smartphone where they missed so they can improve your brushing habits. (It was one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2017!).

    Get it from Amazon for $189.95 (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Even though I'd only had this for a few weeks after replacing a cheap electric toothbrush, I am absolutely floored by the quality. My dentist was HAPPY with my teeth for literally the first time since I've been seeing him. I have a very tightly packed mouth that is really hard to brush thoroughly. Dentist didn't even have to get out the power toothbrush for more than a few back molars. The charging cup looks beautiful in the bathroom. A major investment purchase, but cheaper than deep cleanings or fillings under nitrous oxide!" —HyperlexicXMan

    This won best $$$ electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    34. A waxed canvas messenger bag for a perfect happy medium between polished profesh and cool casual. While holding eeeeeverything they need, with pockets for their laptop, phone, note pads, water bottle, and pens.

    The messenger bag in brown

    Get it from Nisolo for $160 (also available in leather for $255; originally $300).

    Promising review: "I have enjoyed the use of this bag for an entire semester of graduate school at this point. After trying a couple of messenger bags before this one (that were more expensive), they just didn't feel right or compromised in design in some kind of way. This bag is brilliant. For my minimal packing ideals and daily carries, this bag is perfect. It fits an iPad, laptop, external battery, pencil, pen, charging cables for all the things, a medium sized notebook, with a pocket left over I usually pack with consumables/snacks, with room to spare for a water bottle in the designated spot within the bag. Truly, this bag, especially for the price, is a god-send. Excellent material choices for durability/survivability/aesthetics.Thank you for this product! Looking into the shoe lines now." —Daniel K.

    35. A pair of cashmere socks for the person who has everything — except something as utterly luxurious as these.

    The navy socks with white trim

    Get them from Boden for $75 (available in one size that fits sizes 36–42 and three colors).

    36. A Nespresso Vertuo coffee and espresso maker that'll make their morning routine so much less stressful. Just pop in a pod (both espresso shots and full-size coffees available) and press a button. Caffeine is ready!!

    The black nespresso machine with mugs showing the three drink sizes

    It heats up in 15 seconds and has a 40-ounce water tank so you don't have to fill it every morning.

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99 (available in five colors, plus in bundle options with coffee or a milk frother).

    Promising review: "I like iced coffee with high caffeine. This fits the bill perfectly and is a joy to use and drink. My Starbucks monthly bill has come down considerably after buying this unit, and I'm ready to hit the ground running that much sooner in the morning. I especially enjoy the self cleaning feature and the ability to run it for smaller or larger cup sizes. Truly a premium product." —David T.

    If you're looking to save on more counter space, I have the Vertuo Plus, which I use all the time and love — you can get it for $138.86. When I haven't made cold brew, I opt for a hot coffee make with my Nespresso Vertuo — it makes my mornings *SO* much easier.

    37. A pair of classic-for-a-reason shearling Ugg slippers with hard soles, because they will NOT want to take them off when they have to go outside to take out the trash.

    The slide slippers in black, grey, and camel

    They have over 1,000 reviews on Nordstrom alone!

    Get them from Nordstrom or from Amazon for $119.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and 10 colors).

    Promising review: "Best slippers in the world! I've had my Coquette slippers in chestnut for three years now and prior to a dog destroying them, they have been in the best shape anyone could imagine. The soles are ideal for indoor and outdoor wear, this is what makes them so durable. I am live in the north where it snows every winter, and not only are the soles great for durability and lifetime of the slipper, they are great for traction. Speaking of snowy winters, my feet do not get cold if I'm only wearing these slippers outside in the snow either. Great slippers for everything!" —Kingy

    38. The Nintendo Switch Lite, which will keep them entertained with video games for hours, whether they're at home or on the go. If they haven't played Animal Crossing yet, it's time.

    The aqua blue switch

    Get it from Amazon for $199 (available in four colors, and options to bundle with a memory card).

    Promising review: "This feels sooo much better in the hands than the bulkier original Switch, that I can't go back. Even though its lighter, it feels more solid as the Joycons do not come off, and it doesn't bend like the old one did. My arms don't get tired at all holding this. AND it had an actual D-pad! I also do not notice the smaller screen when playing, at all. It's just a much more pleasant handheld experience, which is exactly why I got it." —J. Fox

    Check out our Nintendo Switch Lite review for all the details!

    Some colors come after Christmas.

    39. A stylish acrylic Squatty Potty to make pooping easier so constipation is no longer a #1 (or should we say #2) consternation.

    The clear squatty potty

    If you somehow still don't know what a Squatty Potty is, it's a toilet stool that keeps your feet raised while pooping. ~Going~ in this position is supposed to fully relax your puborectalis muscle, meaning you have an easier elimination, with no straining. And if you think that's TMI, just try it and see.

    Get it from Amazon for $75.76.

    Promising review: "Very useful product, a bathroom essential! I upgraded to the acrylic model to better go with my bathroom, which is bright and airy but cramped, and this does the trick well. Sturdy and attractive, blends in well." —Laurie

    40. A 100% Mongolian cashmere henley with buttons down the front to make it look like vintage-y for a dose of cozy, casual cool.

    Model in the mint green top

    Get it from Everlane for $120 (available in sizes XXS–XL and eight colors).

    Promising review: "This is a very cozy sweater and my new go to for work. A very easy look to throw on and looks great!" —gillby

    41. A two-door smoker for anyone who either 1. already loves making ribs, briskets, and other smoked deliciousness or 2. watches a lot of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and would like to recreate some of the magic at home.

    A person taking sausages out of the smoker (which also has two poultry birds, ribs, and corn inside)

    Seriously, all the briskets I've seen on Triple Gorgeous.

    This bb has over 700 square inches of cooking space, four removable racks, and a stainless steel burner — plus two doors (to save heat if you open just one!).

    Get it from Bass Pro Shops for $189.99.

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my son and he loves it! I love it too as he’s making so many awesome recipes. It’s easy to put together (I watched him as he assembled or) too. I would definitely recommend this as it’s been used almost daily since receiving it." —Kitty Bean

    42. A foldable exercise bike with all the basic features they need if they don't have space (and you don't have the budget) for a Peloton but want access to a quick cardio workout at home. It has a magnetic tension system to up the difficulty, and handy features on the screen so you can track your time, speed, distance, and more!

    The silvery bike, with text "Men's Health editor's choice" larger seat cushion, 300 pound extended weight capacity

    Get it from Amazon for $169.

    Promising review: "The day I put a COVID-19 suspension on my gym membership, I researched affordable, maneuverable exercise bikes lest my knees get painful for lack of this daily exercise! It arrived in a large box (40 lbs) but this 70-year-old gal was able to easily drag into my house and unpack. The directions are a little hard to follow and I’m not 'handy' but I was able to add a little reasoning and put it together in less than an hour. Now sheltering in place for two weeks, this bike starts my day each morning. The mechanics and electronics work perfectly and help me set goals each day. It has variable tension settings, seat height options and a seat position for tall and for shorter people. I’m 5-foot-6 and selected the setting for a taller person. The seat height is on the fourth hole so you could drop for shorter biker. I have biked and binge-watched series, biked and worked off creeping anxiety as I watch the news and rolled it onto the deck on an unseasonably warm day to peddle to Led Zeppelin on my headphones. BEST purchase for the money that I’ve made in years; it’s a solid investment in both my physical and mental health!" —SG

    I bought this bike just as the pandemic was starting this spring, and it was a *great* choice. I put it together in nooooo time flat, with the help of a handy YouTube video (as suggested by one of the reviewers). And the fold-up size is great, but the bike is sturdy and has great features for the price! I love the cushioned seat, which is muuuuuch comfier than most exercise bike seats I've sat on.

    43. A gorgeous Penguin hardcover boxed set of six Charles Dickens novels; they're a fancy addition to any library, large or small.

    The set of books

    Get the set of six from Amazon for $107.99.

    Promising review: "This set of books by Dickens is worth every penny. The cloth-bound covers are decent enough and the paper quality is good. But, the introduction to every book on this collection is priceless. Penguin went all the way in selecting amazing editors for the book introductions. They were a pleasure to read and they will help you to fully understand and appreciate these Dickens jewels." —Carlitos el Terrible

    Equally gorgeous boxed sets are also available for Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters.

    Santa baby, please give me all of these?
