This Blender Bottle Is Perfectly Sized
This individually-sized blender bottle makes it easy for you to make a morning smoothie or protein shake. Then grab-and-go since it doubles as a travel mug!

This Salted Honey Is Beyond Delicious
What’s better than honey on ricotta toast, scones, cheese plates, tea, or even vanilla ice cream? Salted honey! This natural wildflower honey is infused with sea salt for the ideal blend of sweet and salty to make virtually everything more delicious.
These Wine Charms Are Perfect For Every Group
These adorable llama wine charms are an amazing gift for groups like a book club or dinner circle so everyone can keep track of their glass of vino. These pop right onto the lip of the wineglass and add a festive touch for any occasion!
This Dog Selfie Stick Creates Incredible Pics
Pets are notoriously hard to get good pics of, but this dog selfie stick gives you the upper hand. The attached tennis ball grabs the dog’s focus and captures his sweet, funny, expectant expression in a snap. My friend Janine reported amazing results with her sweet lab, Emmy!
This Cast Iron Oil Pampers Your Pans
My husband is a die-hard cast iron cooking fan who makes everything from fried chicken to pie in his growing collection of skillets. He babies his cookware like no one’s business. This USA-made Cast Iron Oil made from organic flaxseed contains a high concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids, which creates a smooth surface through fat polymerization. That’s a lotta science, but the results are delicious!

This Phone Holder Sparks So Much Joy
This phone mount is a helpful little guy that can also stick onto your car’s dashboard and display your phone in landscape or portrait mode for video viewing, FaceTiming or viewing directions. My favorite part is how he looks like a mountaineer holding onto a climbing rope, aka your cord.
This BBQ Apron Is Tactical and Practical
This BBQ apron has so many storage pockets to fully load with a six-pack of beverages, BBQ cooking utensils, condiments and sauces, and whatever else you might need! One size fits all with the adjustable strap, and the camo print looks good on everyone. It’s the tactical, practical way to grill.
This Cereal Bowl Keeps Your Flakes Fresh
This divided bowl is a pretty genius idea for those that don’t like soggy cereal. It keeps the milk separate until you push cereal down the little slide between the two sides – genius! Also useful for yogurt and toppings (or ice cream and M&Ms, nobody’s judging).
This Beard Hat Keeps Your Whole Face Warm
Up in the frigid north, we’re bundled in winter gear from November through April – this beard hat makes it a lot more fun while keeping your whole face warm! The beard comes in gray, black, or brown to customize for the lucky recipient.
This Snack Box Is Perfect For College Students
When I was in college, the best part about parents visiting was the treasure trove of snacks they brought with them! Repay the favor to your favorite student with this glorious snack box filled with 50 familiar goodies to keep them fueled during all-night study sessions.
This Slim Laptop Bag Holds It All
I needed a laptop bag that wasn’t bulky but could hold extra charging cords, papers, pens, and other must-haves. I gifted myself this streamlined case to pop into any tote bag and go! It’s well-padded but still slim and comes in three sizes and 23 pretty patterns, from star-studded to botanical.
These Stuffed Animals Are Deliciously Cute
What is it about these burrito-wrapped stuffed animals that kids go nuts over? I don’t know, but they’re incredibly popular with the short crowd! They’ve also got over 2,000 rave reviews for cuteness and quality, so a kid-approved gift for sure.
This Drip Coffeemaker Is Made For Outdoorsy Types
This ultralight drip coffeemaker weighs less than 1/2 oz, so it’s amazingly easy for backpackers or campers to take along on any adventure. The legs clip onto any mug and produce a sediment-free cup of joe. Give them the best camping coffee they’ve ever tasted!
This Robe Is Pure Heaven
Wrap them in heavenly coziness with this pretty fleece robe! The inside is super fluffy sherpa, and the prettily patterned outside is silky soft velour for the plushest, comfiest hug ever. They won’t take it off all winter!
These Hashtag Ice Cubes Are Insta-Ready
The semi-famous ‘Grammer you know and love will go gaga over this hashtag ice cube tray that’ll provide lots of fodder for unique pics. Just mix a drink and watch the likes roll in. #cheers!
This Minimalist Necklace Packs A Stylish Punch
Another present I ever so thoughtfully gifted to myself is this minimalist crescent necklace that I wear with darn near everything. It comes in rose gold, yellow gold, or silver and is incredibly layerable – it’ll quickly become one of their favorite accessories, as it has mine!
This Unicorn Craft Set Is Magical
You’d have to search pretty hard to find a kid who doesn’t love unicorns, and therefore who wouldn’t be obsessed with this unicorn craft kit. It has six fun things that they can make themselves, and it’s quickly become one of my go-to birthday gifts for the 5-9-year-old crowd.
This Office Sign Is A Hit With Die-Hard Fans
If you’ve got any rabid fans of The Office on your list, buy them this sign immediately! They’ll love a little touch of kitsch in their actual office or just as wall decor at home.
These Gardening Gloves Are Really Sharp
When I saw these clawed gardening gloves, I immediately hit “Add to Cart” to give to my mom. She loves them for digging up plants, deadheading flowers, and pruning – pretty much anything garden-related, these gloves do a bang-up job!
This Dustbuster Really Sucks
I gave my husband this Dustbuster last year when our old one died. It’s been a lifesaver for small messes in the kitchen, keeping the car seats clean, and floors respectable despite all the snacking that goes on in there! It’s lightweight, lasts a long time on a single charge, and pretty powerful for its size. A best-seller for a reason!
This Slime Kit Is Kid Catnip
The slime trend – it’s not going away anytime soon. Give the kids what they want with this amazing slime kit that includes magnetic putty, fluffy slime, glow-in-the-dark putty, liquid slime, color-changing putty, snotty slime, bouncing putty and a DIY glow-in-the-dark slime lab. They’ll be up to their elbows in goo, and loving every second!
This Taco Holder Is Tricera-Tops
We gave this dino-shaped taco holder to a preschool friend deep in the dinosaur phase and, reader, he loved it. Choose from Nacho-saurus, Taco-saurus Rex, or Tricera-taco and make all their prehistoric dreams come true!
This Squirrel Bowl Is So Cute, It’s Nuts
Squirrels are having a moment, much like birds have for the past few years, so this nut bowl is right on-trend. You can also use it to serve candy, olives, or other small goodies. Perfect for the hostess who has everything!
This Recipe Tin Is A Cook’s Dream
This gorgeous recipe tin comes with pretty vintage-inspired illustrated cards, so it’s the ideal gift for the home cooks you love. Again, I gifted this to myself (who says I’m hard to buy for?!) and use it weekly, if not daily, to look up our fam’s favorite dinner recipes.
This Pop-Bead Jewelry Is So Fun For Little Hands
I love giving this pop-bead set to little ones since it helps with hand-eye coordination and is so bright and cheerful. It comes with tons of beads they can attach together in different configurations to make bracelets, necklaces, crowns, and more for themselves and all their stuffed animal or doll friends.
These Headphone Headbands Are Perfect For Little Ones
My littles love watching iPad videos or playing apps while traveling, but bulky kid’s headphones are uncomfortable and hard to wear. My preschooler was so pumped to find this headphone headband in her Christmas stocking last year and promptly put it on, wore it all day, and finally fell asleep in it! It’s so comfortable since the audio devices are slim and flat against the ears, so it’s great for playing sleepytime music or story podcasts to help them relax, too.
This Garment Bag Is Top Quality
My husband occasionally travels for work and has to pack suits, so I got him this garment bag to hold all his clothing and shoes for trips. It has separate sections for blazers, pants, and shirts, plus a telescoping handle and wheels for easy transport. He’s had it for a few years, and the 1200 Denier polyester construction is holding up amazingly well.
This Tonic Syrup Makes The Best G&Ts
Hubs is a G&T enthusiast and says this Jack Rudy Co. tonic syrup is the best thing since sliced bread. It has a balanced quinine taste for a bit of bitterness, plus botanicals and a touch of real cane sugar to transform your cocktail into a “gourmet experience.” I’ve tried it with sparkling water, and that’s delicious, too!
These Sloth Paperclips Make Work Fun
These sloth paperclips are the cutest office supply of the season, and they’ll make even boring TPS reports a little more exciting. Or at least let everyone know how you really feel about them. A cute little gift for your coworker or the person who does your taxes!
This Blanket Scarf Is So Luxe
If you need a fancy-looking present for someone hard to buy for, consider this cozy blanket scarf. It comes in really interesting patterns or cool, graphic color-blocking. It’s much thicker than a typical pashmina, and feels like cashmere, but costs nowhere near as much!
This Moon Lamp Is A Chic Decor Piece
This pretty moon lamp would make a great nightlight for kids (in fact, my 3rd grader is going to find it under the tree this year!), but it’s also chic enough to fit in perfectly with adult spaces. It’s great mood lighting, and looks great sitting on the minimalistic wooden stand that’ll fit in with any decor!
This Floating Shelf Is Great For Bunkbeds
Kids and college students alike will love this sleek floating wall shelf to corral all their bedside necessities like headphones, tech devices, books, glasses, and more. There’s no need for a nightstand, which is pretty impossible on the top bunk, so it comes in handy for small spaces and dorm rooms alike (which are not mutually exclusive!)
These Flannel Sheets Are So Plush
Pinzon brand is highly respected for the quality of its linens, and these flannel sheets are no exception. The thick 100% cotton, fabric straight from Portugal is the real deal: pill-resistant and heavenly soft straight out of the package. Give these to your favorite homebody, and they’ll love you forever.
This Moon Garland Adds Such A Pretty Touch
This moon garland could be a killer present for teens and tweens who love decorating in a boho style. It’s also a pretty gift for nurseries and first apartments – the sturdy metal construction will hold up to moves, redesigns, and everything in between!
This Silk Pillowcase Is Amazing For Skin
Give this silk pillowcase to anyone that cares about their skin and hair. Seriously, since I started using one a few years ago, I’ve recommended it to everyone, and they end up loving it. I’m obsessed with mine since it keeps the creased “sleep lines” off my face – I don’t even travel without it! And the price is fantastic.
This K-Cup Holder Is So Handy
My mom has a ton of K-Cups in a bulky holder that takes up valuable counter space – this K-cup organizer attaches to the wall or fridge, so it’s out of the way but still holds 20 coffee pods. And there’s a handy little corkboard at the top for important notes or favorite pics!
This Bluetooth Speaker Floats!
My kids love listening to music or story podcasts while they do homework, art, or help me make dinner. This little narwhal Bluetooth speaker is unbelievably cute for playing audio. More importantly, the sound quality is amazing, and it actually floats in water so it’s great for the pool, too! You can also pair it with other Audio Pets for a truly wireless experience if you want.
