1. A set of marble whiskey stones that'll thrill your favorite drink enthusiast who does *not* like melted ice spoiling their drink.

The black cubes next to a glass of whiskey

Get a set of nine from Amazon for $7.99 (in a paper gift box; also available in a wooden gift box for $12.99).

Promising review: "The packaging is great, looks really fancy. As for the product itself, it works as described. Keeps the drink cold without diluting it. You don't have to be a whiskey connoisseur to look like one!" —Rutwick Bhawsar

2. A pair of faux fur slippers to keep their tootsies toasty cozy but not overheated all year long. Talk about luxury.

The open toe slide slippers in grey

Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in sizes 6/6.5–9/9.5 and 10 colors and patterns).

Promising review: "Love these so much! So cute. Thinking of buying a second pair. They're obviously not super great quality, but for a house slipper who really cares. Like the faux fur too since it doesn't have that shiny look or messed up look that some faux fur can have." —sav

3. Sparkly throw pillows to inspire their creative side — with reversible two-tone sequins, they can create whatever pattern they want.

The gold pillow with a patch of sequins flipped to turn silver

Get it from Amazon for $7.58 (available in 10 colors).

Promising review: "OK, this was the second mermaid pillowcase I have purchased because I loved the first one so much. This one has my two favorite colors and I absolutely love it. These covers not only look good, they are addictive to hold and play with. Everyone who sees the pillow picks it up and plays with the sequins. The case is well-made and the sequins are on tight." —Kindle Customer

P.S. If you need a pillow insert to go with it, you can get a top-rated 16x16 one from Amazon for $7.99!

4. Rhinestone ear jackets for anyone with stars in their eyes. Or, uh, ears.

The earrings with one star as the stud, then a larger star below that will hang from behind the ear lobe

They can remove the lower star and wear them just as studs, too!

Get them from Amazon for $3.43 (also available in gold).

Promising review: "For a $10 item, these are a great purchase! They’re light weight and delicate on the ear. When dressed up, they look real and expensive." —Jacqe

5. An extra large silk scrunchie for dressing up lazy hair days while protecting their hair — no dents of breakage here.


Get it from Malionne Hair on Etsy for $6.50 (available in six neutral colors in this listing, plus cool tones, purple tones, and warm tones).

Promising review: "These giant scrunchies are beautiful! Super well made, soft and oversized. I purchased the sage & black & I’m obsessed!" —Abbie

Malionne Hair is a woman-owned Etsy shop based in Los Angeles — you can request plastic-free packaging too!

6. A set of eight (four straight, four bent) iridescent reusable metal straws to look super stylish while being low-key environmentally friendly — and they'll make their bevvy taste colder too!

The straight and bent straws

Get a set of eight (plus a cleaning brush) from Amazon for $7.97 (also available in black).

Promising review: "I only have one left. Every time we went out to eat people would ask about them and I would give them one. The brush is truly magical and makes it easy to keep your straws clean. The straws do get cold (due to the material) but I personally like it. The bundle also comes with a pouch making these easy to carry. Ordering the rose gold ones next." —Thrifting Diaries

7. Stately stainless steel cufflinks personalized with their initial that'll say "no, I did NOT wait for the 22nd to buy your present, no siree."

A reviewer's pair of the silver tone cufflinks in the letter A, with a rounded shape, outside lip around the engraving

Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in all 26 letters).

Promising review: "My mom wanted to get my brother cuff links for Christmas. We looked everywhere for initial or monogrammed. She is 95 and on a budget but wanted something nice. These were perfect. Well made, quality material. They were both pleased with the cufflinks" —Jean A. Kirby

8. A two-in-one facial cleansing brush with one silicone side for deeper exfoliation and a gentle bristled side for gentle cleansing. It's like giving a facial over and over (and over and over) again — for under $10.

The pink brush with the double-sided head

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "This facial cleansing brush is everything it’s cracked up to be. I’m impressed with its ease of use, simple construction, good grip, removable soft brush head (for faster drying), the exfoliation head and how well it works. I actually look forward to spending five minutes cleansing my face with this brush. It’s fun." —Rick Richardson

9. A pair of Australian sheepskin insoles to transform any pair of shoes (wellies, slippers, boots, sneaks, etc.) into Ugg-like heaven.

The fluffy white insoles

Get a pair from Amazon for $7.99 (available in women's sizes 7–14/men's sizes 5–11).

Promising review: "Awesome breathable warmth and softness from this brand of sheepskin inserts. Plus, the insoles work well in my different shoe types: lace up dress shoes, winter boots, casual loafers, and ankle boots. Nice that they are all natural too. I've tried another brand that are sewn on to latex backing, but they can slip around inside your shoe and get bunched up. This brand does not! They're also handy because they are narrow enough to fit in my dressier lace up boots. Great product. Bought my first pair a couple of years ago. Will keep buying." —Jen

10. A five-in-one wine stopper that'll also aerate (so their three-buck ~opens up~ to let the nuances and flavors shine), filter out cork particles, pour neatly, and re-cork the bottle.

Wine pouring out of the stopper

Get it from Amazon for $9.50 (also available in several multi-packs).

Promising review: "Don't know what the 'flavor' category means with respect to these wine bottle stoppers but the stoppers work as advertised. A local vineyard was using them in their sample room so I assumed that since a vineyard was using them, they would work as advertised and they do. You can lay a wine bottle flat and it won't leak. Nice that it filters out cork crumbs." —Lawrol

11. And a wine-tasting journal to educate any burgeoning sommelier and encourage them to reflect and take notes on their favorite blends.

The faux leather cover of the book
Peter Pauper Press

It has information with everything they need to know about rating wines, and then the pages they can fill out, including factual information, rating the sweetness and body, balance, finish, and space for general notes.

Get it from Amazon for $7.95 or from Bookshop for $7.31 (to support local bookstores).

12. A dainty personalized ID bracelet for a thoughtful gift without a whole lot of actual, well, thought.

Three bracelets with name bars in silver, gold, and rose gold

Just add whatever you like up to 14 characters and add to cart. Even though these are personalized, they ship out next day, giving you time to get these before the big day!

Get it from Petite Boutique on Etsy for $9.90 (available in three colors).

Petite Boutique is an Irvine, California–based Etsy shop making personalized jewelry, including with names, initials, and coordinates.

13. A challenging and cool-looking Rubik's cube-style puzzle that'll look even more art-like before it's completed.


Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

Promising review: "!his thing is fantastic! i've recently gotten into shape shifting puzzles and this a great place to start from the regular 3x3. This is easily my smoothest turning puzzle. I have done probably 20 solves so far and have had no hangups or issues whatsoever. Stickers seem to be good, one is ever so slightly of center but it doesn't look like any will come off any time soon. Also it just looks awesome in both its solved state and scrambled." —john m.

14. A Beginner's Guide to Lettering and Modern Calligraphy for anyone looking to upgrade their handwriting for personal cards and thank you notes — or even just a doctor's form. My childish chicken scratch is in desperate need of this, tbh.

The book cover
Paper Peony Press

It's filled with tips, tricks, five different alphabet styles, and practice pages — plus handwriting projects at the end.

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

Promising review: "I chose this book because it says 'A Beginner's Guide,' and it is perfectly that! I do love all things font related and I've always wanted to try hand lettering. I wanted a basic foundation with lots of visuals, built-in structure, and repetition in order to get the feel for how letters are created. It is just what I was looking for. It is a well designed workbook with a beautiful feel and cover. It shows the basics of five different alphabets, plain and fun ones, to get you started and on your way to developing your own style. The last section includes ways to bring creativity and composition into your work. It doesn't promise you will become a hand lettering expert overnight, but it is sure to motivate you! I sometimes use tracing paper over the pages for even more practice space! I absolutely recommend this book to beginners. It will be a great addition to your collection. The price is right too! I'm very happy with this purchase!" —Chambers62

15. Beaded tassel statement earrings they'll want to wear with every outfit — whether it's jeans and a tee or a black tie–level LBD.


Yeah, you might as well buy a pair for yourself while you're at it, too.

Get them from Amazon for $8.99 each (available in 13 colors (solid, ombré, and multicolor options).

Promising review: "These are amazing! I ordered the coral ombré ones and then the black ones, and I get so many compliments. They are truly gorgeous and look much more expensive than what they actually cost!" —Ana

16. A five-piece set of rose gold makeup brushes with super soft, densely packed synthetic hairs designed to create a flawless and airbrushed final look. And they'll look really cool sitting out on the vanity or bathroom counter.

The set of brushes from larger face brushes to smaller eye brushes

Get a set of five from Amazon for $9.24.

Promising review: "After seeing these type of makeup brushes plastered all over Instagram, I decided to try them out. They were cheap enough so I figured if I didn't like 'em, no harm really done. Well, I LOVE them. I haven't used my other makeup brushes or my sponge since. The two larger ones I use for liquid foundation and under-eye concealer. The largest one is also fantastic to smooth out & blend your makeup look. The three smaller ones I use to contour and highlight. These work with both powder and liquid. I also feel like these are more sanitary than the beauty blender I was using every day (though I cleaned it often). I can't believe I waited this long to try them!" —Liz

17. A handheld back roller so they can give (and get) relaxing massages without anyone's hands cramping. Ahhhh-mazing.

A reviewer's hand with the roller stone in the middle of their balm

Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in four colors).

Promising review: "Okay so you can go get a super nice one for $50+ or just buy this one, save a bunch of money, and get the same result! A friend of mine had one of those nice ones and I HAD to get one, how good it feels and the ease! But when I saw the price I was thinking that I’ll try a cheaper one and I am not disappointed! And my hubby is happy because I’ll give him more massages now because it doesn’t hurt my hands." —Snelso

18. A ring dish emblazoned with their zodiac sign, because you know they have only the prettiest jewelry, and that jewelry deserves an equally pretty home.

The black virgo dish with symbol and the word virgo
Urban Outfitters

Get them from Urban Outfitters for $8 each (available in all 12 zodiac signs).

19. A faux marble container filled with golden paper clips perfect for your work spouse who basically *lives* at their desk — but wishes it felt more like a corner office.

The clear and marble print container and paperclips

Get it from Amazon for $9.89.

Promising review: "I like this because it adds a little something to my desk. The magnetic part works well and makes it easy to get a paperclip. I like the gold paperclips too. Very cute and not so boring. It's nice to see decorative, functional things on your desk, rather than basic office hardware. The marble is smaller than I thought, but who really wants a huge paper clip holder?" —Lovetoshop

20. A prosecco-based cookbook guaranteed to get things ~popping~ in the kitchen with recipes for fun cocktails, cakes, dinners, and more.

The cover of the book
Bell & MacKenzie Publishing

Get it from Amazon for $6.99 or from Bookshop for $8.39 (to support local bookstores).

21. A bar of handmade soap with a tropical smoothie scent to make them feel like they're on vacation and formulated with coconut oil, olive oil, and shea butter for lasting moisture.

The pink and yellow swirl bar of soap

Get it from Uniquely Bath Co. on Etsy for $8 (also available in oatmeal milk and honey, one of their bestsellers).

Promising review: "I bought this as part of a bday gift but i'm definitely going to have to get one for myself because it smells so good i almost didn't give it to her!!" —Jessica Patterson

Uniquely Bath Co. is a Black-owned Etsy shop based in Atlanta making cruelty-free and natural soaps, sugar scrubs, and body butters.

22. A vegan leather, gold foil-stamped weekly planner for your busy bee of a bestie who needs to keep their jam-packed schedule in order — but in the cutest way possible, of course.


It has weekly and monthly layouts, an inner pocket with stickers, and extra dotted pages to use as you choose.

Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in five colors).

Promising review: "Amazing value for the money!!! Probably one of the best, cheapest planners I’ve ever had." —Amazon Customer

23. A (squeak-free) jade roller and gua sha set that'll be like giving the gift of an at-home facial treatment, but for way less $$$.

A reviewer holding the green double-sided roller and gua sha

It can help their skin absorb products better and increase circulation. And it just *feels* really great, too.

Get it from Amazon for $9.94 (also available in a rose quartz roller).

Promising review: "So far I'm really enjoying this product! Both the roller and guasha tool seem to be made out of real Jade and are high quality. I got these because my face tends to get really puffy, especially during allergy season. They come in neat a package with clear instructions. I watched several additional YouTube videos about how to use them. I used the Guasha tool once a day and go through the full routine, and the Jade roller throughout the day, while I'm working or watching TV in the evening. I've had them for a pretty short time but I feel like I'm already noticing a difference. If nothing else it's a very soothing and relaxing habit. I'd definitely recommend it to a friend or give the set as a gift in the future!" —Grace KB

24. A handheld electric milk frother so they don't *have* to leave home to enjoy a fabulous latte or cappuccino. It even works to create cold foam!

A mason jar filled with iced coffee and foamed milk

It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning!

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

Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

25. A glittery E.l.f. liquid eyeshadow to put a ~lid~ on the perfect party look — with just a few dabs of their finger.

Swatches of the shades, all metallic, including black, blue, gold, rose gold, and silver

They're quick-drying too, so they won't crease up or fall out!

Get them from E.l.f. for $5 each (available in 11 colors).

26. A 36 LED ring light that'll clip right to their smartphone or any other device. And with three different brightness intensities, they can customize their selfie or foodstagram like a profesh photog.

The ring light clipped on a phone, plus an image showing the three light settings

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "I wasn’t really expecting much when I bought this, most of these lights are 2-3 times higher in price. I was shocked how well this works and how much I’m enjoying using it. It takes your pictures to the next level. It charges super fast, easily clips on to your phone or tablet, has three different settings so you can decide the brightness you want by clicking a button and my eight year old daughter loves using it too! I highly recommend this!!!" —Daisy

27. A trio of gold, pearl, and rhinestone hair pins pretty enough to wear to a wedding, but cheap enough to wear every single day.

The pins

Get a pack of three form Amazon for $7.66 (available in gold and silver).

Promising review: "They are prettier, better made, and sturdier than I'd anticipated. Neither the pearls nor the gold look cheap or gaudy. They have some flexibility to bend as needed, to both stay in the hair and have the pearls arranged (clustered or not clustered) as you prefer. By having three pins, you can place them separately as desired, or group them together for impact. Great buy. Could not find what I wanted in any local store." —Avida Reader

28. A contoured silk sleeping mask that'll never press down on their eyes, so they'll completely forget they're wearing it and be well on the way to the best sleep of their life.

The black mask on a model, and the inside of the mask showing the contoured holes for their eyes

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "I work nights so sleeping in the daytime can be annoying sometimes if you can't block out all of the light. It's funny because it looks like a mini bra but it's cool because it has the deep pockets over the eyes so the material is not pressing against your eyes. It is lightweight and completely blackout. It leaves no marks on my face after sleeping. It also doesn’t shift or move out of place when I sleep even if I toss and turn.Anyway, It is very comfortable.The carry pouch is perfect to fold it away and keep it safe until you are ready to use it again." —Paulette Reed

29. A Tequila Mockingbird cocktail kit including a bartender's jigger to measure out drinks, two swizzle sticks, and an abbreviated version of the original book, featuring 15 drink recipes with notes on the books that inspired them.

The kit

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

Promising review: "I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my secret santa, who is an English teacher. She loved it! Such a unique idea, with fun recipes and came with a small shot glass." —Heather

30. A pair of pearl bow stud earrings that'll ~wrap up~ any pretty outfit.

The bow-shaped pearl earrings
J Crew Factory

Get them from J.Crew Factory for $9.

31. A pack of silver foil playing cards for at-home poker nights that are more luxurious than the swankiest five-star hotel and casino in Vegas.

The cards with a patterned metallic design

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (also available in gold and three black designs).

Promising review: "I worried this product may look cheap when it arrived but NOT AT ALL! :) The cards are sturdy, the faces are very clear on every card and the 'points' (suits) have a satin/spiral effect to them. I especially appreciated the face-cards. The imprint is VERY clear and high quality. They were immediately 'shuffle-able' and bended easily but were still sturdy. I also chose this deck because the back of the cards is beautiful and universal in its design." —Cynthia

32. A flexible marble-printed notebook filled with blank pages for jotting down only the best and brightest ideas and sketches.

The white and grey cover

Get it from Amazon for $4.25.

Promising review: "I had never bought this brand before. It's really a gorgeous notebook and looks much more expensive than it is. It bends well. (Don't you just hate those journals you can hardly pry open?) The paper is thicker than, say, a school notebook. No bleed through with ballpoint pens, though some with Sharpies." —Cynthia Sillitoe

33. A face wash foamer to fluff up whatever cleanser they use, so they use less product (saving $$ in the long run) and enjoy a more ~luxurious~ experience. Plus, the foamed up wash is less harsh on sensitive skin!

The pink container with a pump top to fluff the cleanser and foamed up cleanser all around it

Get it from Amazon for $7.

Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —Knock Knock Me

34. A macrame hanging planter so they can show off their favorite bb greenery (real or judgment here) in interior designer–level style.

A plant hanging from the cream macrame strings with brown beads

Even better if you give it with a plant already inside!

Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (or a pack of two for $16.98).

Promising review: "I love these hangers! 40+ years ago I could do macrame, but have forgotten all but basic knot, so was very happy to find these. They are similar to what I used to make way back when! These hangers are very well made, the cord is about the weight of cotton clothesline (but smoother and more tightly woven) and should hold a pot of substantial weight. I wasn't expecting them to have beads, but they are so pretty with decal or painted flowers on them. Also, they arrived quickly, on the day expected." —BeBop

35. Vintage-inspired cat eye sunnies for a no-photos-please level of cool. But....they'll actually take a lot of great selfies in them.,

Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 10 colors).

Promising review: "These are perfection. I never, ever write reviews but I had to for these. For one, the price was unbeatable. I was looking for knock-offs of the Le Specs style (which go for over $100) so wasn't expecting much for this price but, wow, do these exceed my expectations. They came in perfect condition, inside a really nice case (!) with a lens cloth to boot (and the outside packaging is adorable, as well). As for how they look — AWESOME. Super of-the-moment. I'll definitely be buying other styles from this company." —Brooklyn Ali

36. 18K gold-plated snake earrings so they can slither into any room (and one party...) in style.

The dangle earrings with teardrop green stones and snakes wrapped around the top

Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "I was afraid they would be too large for my liking, but they're perfect!! (About the size of a big almond). They are a beautiful sparkly, deep emerald green attached to a beautiful sparking zircon which almost looks like a diamond. The snake and everything is finely detailed. They look much, much more expensive than they are. I love them! You cannot go wrong with these — especially for the money." —M. Williams

37. A set of six antique-looking art prints that'll turn their home into a swanky tropical paradise.

The prints of palm framed on a wall

Get the set of six from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "The quality of these prints is exceptional. The paper is very, very thick (thicker than most prints I've purchased in the past). The colors are really rich, sumptuous and vibrant. In my opinion, the website shots do not do these prints justice. I was taken aback by the overall high quality of these prints (especially given their low price). I've seen this prints elsewhere for far more $. So, congratulations — you've found yourself a sweet deal! If you're thinking about this purchase, you will be very pleased!" —Marsha H.

Less money spent on other people's presents = more money to buy New Year's champagne for yourself.
