1.Orolay Women's Thickened Down Jacket
Best for the Cold Climate Dweller
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've likely heard of "the Amazon coat." This down jacket from Orolay is insanely popular for a reason: Essentially, it's warm (our Executive Editor Dara Katz calls it a "tent dress for subzero weather"), it's trendy, it has plenty of pocket space (we're talking six huge pockets that could replace the need for a purse), plus, there's a fuzzy hood that anyone would appreciate in the face of a wind gust. It also comes in plenty of different colors to suit just about anyone's tastes. All in all, it's a great gift for those who will be experiencing a harsh winter.
2. GoWISE USA 3.7-Quart Air Fryer
Best for the Busy Home Chef
Air frying is still one of the hottest cooking methods around—how else can you perfectly cook salmon and veggies in a matter of minutes or perfectly crisp up Trader Joe’s appetizers? This air fryer from GoWise USA is a great choice for any busy cook thanks to its eight cooking presets, which work for everything from fries to cake. It even comes with a book with 50 recipes to get your giftee inspired.
3. Bodum Pour-Over Coffee Maker
Best for the Coffee Guru
Any hardcore coffee lover is likely to tell you that the taste of slow-brewed coffee is superior to all others, and this popular, elegant pour-over coffee maker will give your java lover the ability to experience it firsthand: It has a stainless-steel mesh filter that's meant to extract fragrant oils from coffee beans in a way that paper filters can't. It's easy for novice baristas to use as well—all they'll need to do is add ground beans to the built-in filter, slowly pour over hot water and in a matter of minutes, they’ll have the perfect cup of joe—or eight.
4. Revlon One Step Hair Dryer Brush And Volumizer
Best for the Beauty Obsessed
Pretty much everyone and their mother is raving about the Revlon One Step—including our own Editor-in-Chief, Jillian Quint, who said it gave her back 20 minutes of her life in the mornings. Designed to give your giftee a salon-like blowout with its unique design, which features airflow vents in its barrel, an oval shape for a bit of lift and frizz-fighting ionic technology. It’s easier to hold than a run-of-the-mill hair dryer, too, making it a must for any beauty lover's bathroom.
5. Capri Blue Scented Candle
Best for the Homebody
The volcano scent from Capri Blue is sure to go down as one the best scented candles of all time. It has a light sugary, citrus scent that will make your gift recipient's home smell like an Anthropologie store (and trust us—that's a very, very good thing) and it will burn for hours on end—up to 85, according to the company. Plus, it comes in a gorgeous iridescent jar that will double as a décor piece once it's burned out.
6. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
Best for the Makeup Maven
Whether it’s for a stocking stuffer or a “just because” gift for your BFF, this popular liquid lipstick will be a winner. Available in 12 different hues to complement a variety of skin tones, its shiny matte finish is pure, pouty perfection. It lasts pretty much all day (hence the name) and leaves lips hydrated, too, thanks to its vitamin E and avocado oil. It's also cruelty-free certified: What’s not to love?
7. Bala Bangles
Best for the Workout Queen
Anyone who has attended boutique pilates classes or mom-walked Runyon Canyon has likely seen these colorful bracelets on plenty of ankles and wrists. These 1-pound weights, also featured on Shark Tank, will add a little extra tension to any fitness buff's core workout or power walk. They're also far more stylish than the competition, which is exactly why they’re so popular. Our tester found that they were super easy to put on and take off, and they actually stay put once they're in place.
9. JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth Speaker
Best for the Techie
A seriously curated playlist requires a serious speaker. The JBL Flip 5 will be a great option for any music lover because it’s portable, waterproof and offers 12 hours of incredible playtime, according to the company. Better yet, they'll be able to bring it just about anywhere, from the backyard to the beach, thanks to its waterproof build, which enables it to be submerged up to 1 meter for as long as 30 minutes.
10. SIORO Silk Satin Pajamas
Best for the Glamazon
Is there anything more luxurious than waking up in a pair of silk pajamas? We think not. Your recipient will feel like they’re rising and shining in a 5-star hotel with these soft jammies. Available in a multitude of colors and made of high-quality imitation silk fabric, they’re a little more economical than real silk, but don’t sacrifice on comfort, according to the reviewers who love them.
11. Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera
Best for the Ultra-Nostalgic
The '90s are having a major resurgence, and that means a comeback of all of the goods that went along with it—like polaroid cameras. For your nostalgic pal, there's this mini instant camera, which will give them a similar effect to the old classic in a modern and adorable compact design. It's an immediate way to make new memories, and it's got a built-in mirror, too (so yes, they'll still be able to take selfies with it).
12. Barefoot Dreams CozyChic In The Wild Throw
Best for the Cozy Lover
One can never have too many throw blankets, and this one from Barefoot Dreams is worth snuggling up to. Large enough to wrap around your giftee's shoulders and feet, it's beloved by celebrities and influencers alike—hell, even Chrissy Teigen loves it! And who could blame her? Its polyester microfiber fabric is so soft, they'll feel like they're being wrapped in a cloud.
13. Plants for Pets Live Snake Plant
Best for the Plant Challenged
Even if your recipient has a black thumb, they can likely take care of a snake plant. A form of succulent, it's super easy to care for, as snake plants require minimal sunlight and water and add some much-needed greenery to any space.
14. UGG Women's Fluff Yeah Slide Slipper
Best for the Trendsetter
These cult-favorite Fluff Yeah Slide slippers (which also happen to rank among PureWow's picks for the best slippers of all time) will make your sister or mom's work-from-home day or lazy Sunday that much better. Available in a plethora of flashy colors and patterns, like neon and leopard, they're made of UGGs iconic sheepskin. (Read: They're über-soft). Plus, they'll be able to wear them while running errands without feeling like they're underdressed.
15. VAGA Scrunchies
Best for the Pony Enthusiast
Whether worn on the wrist or in a high pony, a scrunchie is an essential hair accessory for anyone with long locks. Made of silk, this pack of five will be less damaging to your giftee's hair (and far more stylish) than traditional elastic hair ties. You can also choose to split them to stuff them into multiple stockings or gift bags.
16. Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Best for the Home Chef
A Dutch oven can really do it all, from slowly simmering stews to baking artisan loaves of bread. While this Lodge version is no Le Creuset, it's made of enameled cast iron and performs similarly to many pricier competitors without the same hefty price tag. There are a ton of color options to pick from, so you can choose your favorite home cook’s favorite as a gift.
17. Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza
Best for the Friend Who Loves to Laugh
The name may be silly, but Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza is a card game that’s good for all ages, since it's incredibly fast-paced and guaranteed for a laugh as players race to get rid of all their cards. It's not one a game player is likely to have in their collection already, either.
18. Kodak Luma 350 Mini Projector
Best for the Movie Buff
A little known fact: Movies are much more fun to watch when they're projected onto a wall. This mini projector, which is roughly the size of your palm, makes it possible for your favorite film junkie to have the ultimate movie night with incredible, high definition viewing that we found superior to other mini projectors we've tried. You can easily plug in into your phone, computer or streaming stick, and it was a cinch to set up, too.
19. Slip Silk Pillowcase
Best for the Sleeping Beauty
If your giftee isn't sleeping with a silk pillowcase yet, they’re definitely missing out. Not only are they softer than traditional cotton pillowcases, but they can help retain moisture in your hair and reduce friction against your face as you snooze. This one from Slip was our favorite pick for curly locks, as it it kept our ringlets frizz-free overnight. It's made of 100 percent silk and comes in a good range of colors.
20. EcoTools 5-Piece Makeup Brush Set
Best for the Earth Crusader
These makeup brushes are great. Not only do they come in a set that includes all the essentials (we're talking an angled foundation brush, a blurring brush, a defining crease brush, an angled liner brush and a full blush brush), they're made of recycled materials, making for an eco-friendly gift that your Earth-conscious aunt will definitely appreciate.
21. AeroGarden Black Harvest Hydroponic Garden
Best for the Meal Purist
Nothing beats the taste of fresh herbs in a home-cooked meal, but the bunches at the grocery store always have way more than what anyone would actually need. AeroGarden makes it easy to grow herbs at home that any avid meal-prepper will surely appreciate. This Black Harvest set, which is entirely hydroponic (that means there’s no watering required), comes with a seed kit and an LED grow light for an always-ready tabletop garden.
22. Sojos Classic Square Polarized Sunglasses
Best for the Fashionista
If your giftee can’t leave the house without a chic pair of shades, it’s time to add some new ones to their rotation. Available in more than 10 different colors, these sun-blockers are plenty on-trend and have a square frame that will look incredible on round or diamond faces. Bonus: They’re UV400 polarized, so they'll add some extra protection from UV light.
23. Cooluli Mini Skincare Fridge
Best for the Skincare Savvy
Know someone who lives and breathes for eye masks and hydrating creams? They’ll adore this luxe mini fridge, which can be used to store skincare products at the ideal chilled temp for an added cooling effect. It holds 4 liters worth of product but is still small enough to store on a bathroom counter or vanity.
24. LifeAround2Angels Bath Bomb Set
Best for the Bath Taker
The best way to elevate a nice night of self care is in the tub with a good bath bomb. This set boasts natural ingredients, like olive and coconut oils, and each of the 12 bombs offers a different experience, meaning your giftee can have a field day every day of the week—and then some.
25. Hoan The Original Bagel Guillotine Slicer
Best for the Breakfast Aficionado
Bagels are a pain in the butt to cut: You always end up with uneven slices or lopsided edges. This “bagel guillotine” will be a bagel lover's new best friend, whether they're into egg sandwiches or a classic bagel with cream cheese. It slices perfectly each and every time and even has a safety shield to protect their precious digits from harm.
26. Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C and Turmeric Face Oil
Best for the Serum Buff
According to board-certified dermatologist Dr. Robyn Gmyrek, vitamin C lessens the breakdown of collagen production and neutralizes free radical damage. And who on your Christmas list wouldn't want that? Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow serum is chock-full of it—plus a boost of turmeric extract—which the company claims can provide extra protection from free radicals—and an instant glow.
27. Zoya Quad Nail Polish
Best for the Nail Chameleon
This best-selling pack from Zoya makes it possible for a polish fiend to get an at-home manicure they can feel good about. Your giftee will get four long-lasting colors that are vegan and free of 10 common nail polish chemicals, like parabens and formaldehyde. With multiple color options to choose from, you can give them as stocking stuffers, too.
28. adidas Originals Festival Crossbody Bag
Best for the Concert-Goer
This crossbody from adidas will come in handy for any regular concert-goer, as they can use it to stash their phone, ID, cash and a chapstick while going hands-free. Made of sturdy polyester, it's tough enough to withstand a little wear and tear and small enough to meet the regulations for most venues. An adjustable strap also means it will be extra-comfortable for your giftee.
29. JoyJolt White Wine Glasses
Best for the Wine Connoisseur
The unique cylinder shape of these vino glasses will make them your gift recipient's go-to drinkware—and that means wine and cheese nights just got a major upgrade. Made of genuine crystal, they’re high-quality, durable and easy to hold (read: less spills).
30. DrinkMate Sparkling Water and Soda Maker
Best for Fans of Bubbles
That La Croix obsession can really add up when it comes to your giftee’s grocery bill. With the DrinkMate, they’ll be able to make their own sparkling water at home with whatever flavor they desire. Simply hook it up to a CO2 carbonator, and they’ll be well on their way to fizzing up their favorite beverages.
31. Cosori Electric Gooseneck Pour Over Kettle
Best for the Tea Sipper
An electric kettle is key to a tea sipper's kitchen arsenal. This black one is sleek, boils water faster than they could on the stove (three to five minutes, say shoppers) and boasts several temperature settings for whatever tea type they're brewing. Because it has a gooseneck, it’s also ideal for pouring hot water slowly over coffee.
32. Qai Qai Doll by Serena Williams
Best for Your Favorite Little Girl
Serena Williams’ daughter, Alexis Olympia, is obsessed with her baby doll, Qai Qai—so much so that it has its own verified Instagram account. Now kids ages 3 and up can join in on fun with their very own Qai Qai doll, which not only serves as a pillar of inclusivity, it's bound to become their new BFF.
33. Tocess Big Hair Claw Clips
Best for the Sloppy Chic
Life means there are always days you can't get a good hair wash in. Make sure your giftee's locks look chic regardless, even when they're throwing their strands into an updo for the second (or third. Or fourth) day in a row, with these clips that are strong enough to hold thick curls as well as thin strands.
34. Instant Pot Pro 10-in-1 Pressure Cooker
Best for the Convenience-Loving Cook
The Instant Pot has taken the cooking world by storm for its ability to do everything from steaming and sautéing to conquering soup in a matter of minutes—all because of the pressure cooker setting that makes dump and cook meals easier than ever.

39. Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Canceling Headphones
Best for the Busy Bee
Whether they’re busy commuters or just trying to drown out the world around them as they work from home, these wireless headphones from Sony will come in handy. With a seamless Bluetooth connection, the WH-1000XM4s provide impeccable sound, a reported 30-hour battery life and touch-sensor controls (like holding your hand over the earcup to mute it). What’s more, they have a nifty feature called active noise cancelation that will allow the user to control how much of the outside environment they hear—something that's perfect for if they're also keeping an eye on the kids.
40. S'well Steel Water Bottle

Aside from the gorgeous marble patterns S’well bottles afford, they have a triple-layered, vacuum-insulated construction, meaning if ice is put inside, it's not likely to melt until the end of the day. It'll be just the thing for even the typically parched to remember to stay nice and hydrated.

43. E. Palace Water Can
Best for the Avid Gardener

Best for the Loungewear Devotee
We’re still not over the cozy WFH wear we sported throughout all of 2020—and we'd be willing to bet your gift recipient isn't, either. Since nothing sounds better than staying wrapped in a blanket all day, why not introduce them to Shark Tank-favorite The Comfy?
