How to Return Gifts on Amazon

Most purchases through Amazon can be returned within 30 days of when you received it. If you’re the gift giver, you can go to the Returns Center to send things back. (For the holiday season, most items purchased between October 1, 2022 and December 25, 2022 can be returned until January 31, 2023.) On the other hand, if you’re the gift receiver, you can go to the Gift Returns portal and return items based on the order number or contact someone in Customer Service.

Best for the Bookworm

1. Kindle Paperwhite


Yes, we’re all technically trying to cut down on screen time, but we give a pass to the new Kindle Paperwhite which has an adjustable warm light (which is easier on the eye than blue light) and is an active encouragement to take a break from mindlessly TikTok scrolling. This Kindle can store thousands of titles in the size of one thin book, and your giftee can connect to the Kindle app to download more. The battery lasts up to 10 weeks and it’s also waterproof, so reading in the bathtub is always an option.

  • Most promising review: “After reading every day for at least 4-6 hours per day/night for 7 days straight, I had 57% battery left over… Also, I downloaded at least 15 new books on there, not to mention the impressive collection of books I already owned and was able to sync to the device, and I still have over 4GB of space available to use. I have since named the kindle Kurt, as I feel emotionally connected to the device after our adventures together these past weeks. If you are a super bookworm like me, or are just trying to finish a whole book for the first time, I highly recommend this device for purchase. I think it was worth the money a thousand times over.”

These headphones are a great alternative to the Sony headphones that are trending right now, and are also great for those times your introvert friend doesn’t feel like engaging with the world. Adjusting noise cancellation and connecting to Bluetooth is super easy, and the battery life is double the industry standard.

  • Most promising review: "Really solid pair of headphones especially for the price. First up the audio is crazy clear and I was surprised to find the bass was really good…They’re extremely comfortable and go completely over the ear, which was a big worry for me because my ears are huuuge." 

Best for the BEC lover

3. Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Hamilton Beach

There’s nothing quite like a good BEC (or any breakfast sandwich, for that matter), and this sandwich maker will let your giftee enjoy one any time they have a craving without having to change out of their pajamas. They can fully customize their meal with different breads, cheese, eggs and meat and have a hot sandwich in just a few minutes. All the parts are dishwasher safe, so cleanup is pain-free, too. Breakfast for dinner? Yes, please.

  • Most promising review: “It works exactly as described and does the job perfectly. I've been using it for about three weeks now and it's produced perfect egg sandwiches every time. Clean up is a breeze, just as advertised. I'm contemplating upgrading to the DOUBLE sandwich maker.”

Best for the Insomniac

4. YnM Weighted Blanket


There’s a lot going on in the world right now (*gestures wildly at everything*) so it’s not surprising if you or a friend have had a hard time sleeping. One thing that may help is a weighted blanket which can apply some calming pressure on the body. This one has breathable layers and glass beads distributed in small pockets to provide even pressure. It comes in different sizes, colors and weights, so you can find one that’s just right. Pro tip: to find the weight you should use, take 10% of your body weight and add one pound. 

  • Most promising review: “It is a perfect weight and size. The material isn't cheap, it can stay warm or cool, and definitely has improved my sleep quality."

Best for the Gamer

5. Nintendo Switch


There are some studies that show playing video games is associated with higher performance on memory tasks, and who are we to argue with science? Whether your favorite gamer jumped on the Animal Cross train or is a fan of Mario Kart, the Nintendo Switch can let them play both, and then some. There are three play modes (TV, tabletop and handheld) and they can connect via WiFi to play with other people. It’s also super portable, so they can travel with it, and always have some entertainment within arm’s reach.

  • Most promising review: “Sure, it's no PS4 or PS5, but it's an incredible little machine with such incredible versatility in such a tiny package. While it might not have the pure processing power and graphics capability of the other two major systems, it does do what Nintendo has done best for a long time, provide a reasonably priced quality portable gaming system.”

Best for the Techie

6. Apple Watch Series 7


We already rely on technology for pretty much everything in our lives, and the Apple Watch is an extension of that convenience in one wearable package. In addition to sending text messages, listening to music and using Siri, your pal will be able to take advantage of the many health features, allowing them to track their heart rate, movement, workouts, sleep and more. It’s water-, crack- and dust-resistant and, for those times where they want (or need) to slow down, there are breathing and meditation sessions on offer.

  • Most promising review: “The screen on this is fairly big for a watch, but it still feels comfortable and looks good. I love the ability to control my audiobooks. I also love being able to set timers with Siri when my hands are greasy from cooking…If you are looking at a smart watch and already have an iPhone then this is a good choice.”

Best for the Dog Lover

7. Bedsure Orthopedic Dog Bed


This dog bed is made of high density foam to provide support for Fido’s body, and it has bolstered sides so he even has somewhere to rest his little head. The sleeping surface is covered with a soft flannel fabric, and the cover is removable so your giftee can toss it in the wash when it starts getting dirty. The bed comes in sizes XS–XXL, meaning there’s something for all types of dogs, from chihuahuas to labradoodles. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come in human sizes though.

  • Most promising review: “Definitely a quality dog bed. It is so soft and comfortable. My dog was wary at first, but quickly curled up in it and being that I put it in the living room, she didn't even come to bed that night, just stayed in this bed in the living room!”

Best for the Spa Enthusiast

8. Renpho Eye Massager with Heat


It may not be possible to give your loved one a massage every day after work, but this eye massager is a pretty good alternative. It provides oscillating pressure and percussion massaging around the eyes, and has built-in heating pads for even more relaxation. It’s Bluetooth enabled so they can play prerecorded music or connect to their favorite playlists. If your gift recipient spends a ton of time staring at a computer, this is a particularly solid pick.

  • Most promising review: “After a long day and a bad headache I put this on and relax. It is so wonderful. It feels like exactly the way I would ask someone to rub my head. The heat is an amazing feature. I use it nightly now and sometimes twice in a row. It is a great self care gift to get you through a hard day.”

Best for the Photo Sharer

9. KODAK Digital Picture Frame


If you have a friend or family member who has tens of thousands of photos on their phone, give them this digital frame to help show some of those pics off. The frame can be mounted on the wall or put on a tabletop, and photos can be imported easily along with music and videos. The displayed photos rotate, and your loved one can also invite friends and family to share their photos and create group albums.

  • Most promising review: “This is a great photo frame. Simple to use with flash drive or by uploading. Quick set up. Nice features. Looks great!”

Best for the Smoothie Drinker

10. Ninja BL610 Professional 72 Oz Countertop Blender


No one likes a lumpy smoothie or soup, so a good blender is a kitchen essential. The Ninja blender has a large 72-ounce capacity to let them make enough servings for the whole family, and it crushes ice like a pro. The pitcher is dishwasher-safe so they can clean it with the rest of their dishes, and it has three settings as well as a pulse function.

  • Most promising review: “I don't usually write reviews, but I HAD to for this blender. I bought this blender because I use a blender at least 5 times a week and I wanted one that would do the job well and last me awhile. I am happy to report that I have had this blender for five years now and everything is still working great. It is a powerful blender that is very easy to clean (since the blender blades come out).”

Best for the Cold Climate Dweller

11. Orolay Thickened Down Jacket


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.

  • Most promising review: “This jacket feels like a down comforter: warm, cozy, puffy in that sense, but definitely a good jacket if you are going to be in the cold, cold weather! If you are looking for something more fitted, this probably isn't the jacket for you, but if warmth, storage, and comfort are key, then this is a good one to have in your closet for those super cold nights or trips to the mountains!”

Best for the Busy Home Chef

12. GoWise Usa 3.7-Quart Air Fryer

GoWise Usa

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? 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.

  • Most promising review: “This is the best thing I have ever purchased. I have made several different chicken dishes, steaks, many different vegetables, including cauliflower, asparagus, carrots and zucchini fries…I am an air-frying maniac. Everything came out really crispy and delicious.”

Best for the Coffee Guru

13. Bodum Pour-over Coffee Maker


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.

  • Most promising review: “Simple, efficient and fast. The permanent filter prevents trash in the landfill and is easy to clean/maintain. An elegant addition to a coffee bar and it could not be simpler to use…Big fan and highly recommend.”

Best for the Beauty Obsessed

14. Revlon One Step Hair Dryer Brush and Volumizer


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.

  • Most promising review: “I almost have to wake up BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP in order to have enough time to dry my hair before work…This thing took me 8 minutes. I naturally assumed, upon finishing, that I had entered some sort of Amazon-created beauty time warp. I checked with my husband, in the next room, and in fact I did not go through a blowout wormhole. The silkier-than-silk style was accomplished by this miracle of a brush in 8 minutes (several more minutes were lost to running my hands through my hair and flicking it over my shoulder while smiling coquettishly in the mirror). If you struggle with an overabundance of hair like I do, seriously consider giving this amazing contraption a try.”

Best for the Homebody

15. Capri Blue Scented Candle

Capri Blue

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 smell 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 the candle burns out.

  • Most promising review: “Perfect gift for friend or for oneself. It smells fabulous!!”

Best for the Makeup Maven

16. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick


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?

  • Most promising review: “When I say this lipstick stays on ALL DAY, it ain't no joke. If I put this on at 7:30 a.m., I really don't even need to reapply after lunch (unless it's an extra greasy meal), and really only need to reapply at about maybe 4:30 p.m. before I leave work. Bonus: I get SO many compliments every time I wear this color. You really can't go wrong with the Beso shade!”

Best for the Workout Queen

17. Bala Bangles


These 1-pound weights, 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.

  • Most promising review: “These are so great. Even though they're just 1 lb each, that little bit of weight makes a big difference when doing yoga, pilates, walking, etc. The color and design are pretty too. Definitely recommend.”

Best for the Accessory Fanatic

18. Ursteel Layered Choker Necklace


This chic layered necklace has a great little personalized touch, as it displays your giftee’s initial in 14K gold plating. You can choose between gold, rose gold or silver, and it has a lobster clasp design that makes it easy to open and close. It’s also hypoallergenic, so you won't have to worry about it irritating their skin.

  • Most promising review: “I love that I can wear either one, or both, and it gives a different look to an outfit. They haven’t turned my neck green after several months of nearly daily wear. I’ve worn them in the shower a few times, slept in them and they’ve held up. I get constant compliments; a few people have told me they look like real gold.”

Best for the Outdoor Partier

19. JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth Speaker


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.

  • Most promising review: “It sounds big and has a long battery life. If you have other JBL compatible speakers you can link them together. This is my 3rd JBL small speaker over the last 15 years. Top quality. I love that it fits in a cup holder or bottle holder on a backpack.”

Best for the Glamazon

20. SIORO Silk Satin Pajamas


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.

  • Most promising review: “So soft and great quality. These PJs feel so good when wearing that I never want to take them off! Fit was true to size and the color is beautiful. I love them! Best gift ever! They are a little bigger than standard size but I like my pajamas big. They are so pretty and feel so lush. I feel sexy in them even though they cover everything! They are the ultimate in lounge wear. I just ordered a second pair!”

Best for the Ultra-Nostalgic

21. Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Camera


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 (so yes, they'll still be able to take selfies with it).

  • Most promising review: “I bought this for a friend in college and some of our favorite memories were captured and hung up on the wall. It's great for dorms, college parties, and adults as well!”

Best for the Cozy Pal

22. Barefoot Dreams CozyChic In The Wild Throw

Barefoot Dreams

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?  It’s machine washable, so you won’t have to worry about it getting grimy, and the leopard print is simply a bonus.

  • Most promising review: “This is luxury and warmth and style for any home. It is ridiculously soft and cozy. I want another one for my bedroom. Spoil yourself with this purchase!”

Best for the Plant Challenged

23. Plants for Pets Live Snake Plant

Plants for Pets

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. The tall spiky leaves (some may even say, snake-like) make an eye-catching statement in an otherwise ordinary room.

  • Most promising review: “I was very hesitant to buy live plants but what an incredible surprise to discover how healthy and happy this plant is and arrived in PERFECT condition! Now sitting happily on my plant stand with its other counterparts. Really impressed with the packing of this plant, too. I would definitely buy from this company again!”

Best for the Trendsetter

24. Ugg Fluff Yeah Slide Slipper


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, she'll be able to wear them while running errands without feeling like she’s underdressed.

  • Most promising review: “These shoes are beautiful. They are so soft and comfy. They feel like I’m walking on a cloud. I’ll wear them indoor or out.”

Best for the Pony Enthusiast

25. Slip Silk Large Scrunchies


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 three will be less damaging to your giftee's hair (and far more stylish) than traditional elastic hair ties. They won’t have any weird dents in their hair after wearing it up for more than five minutes. These guys also make great stocking stuffers.

  • Most promising review: “Yes, they're expensive. Yes, there are cheaper scrunchies that are also made of high quality silk. Yes, I could have found cheaper magenta and lilac colored silk scrunchies. I don't care. I love the large size and the colors. Silk is AMAZING for someone with curly hair like me- especially if it's very fine and fragile and the large size makes it easy to double up on twisting the band without breakage or leaving a huge dent in the curl pattern.”

Best for the Home Chef

26. Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven


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. And it will look great in any kitchen or on any table. There are a ton of color options to pick from, so you can choose your home cook’s favorite.

  • Most promising review: “It makes bread! Ok not really. I am the one making the bread. But I would never have attempted it without this beauty. Everything is baked evenly. I’ve also made several stews and messy, saucy things and cleaning is super easy. I can’t not mention the price point. Lodge has always had great, lesser priced implements but I can’t imagine why someone would spend 4X as much for a name.”

Best for the Friend Who Loves to Laugh

27. What Do You Meme?

What Do You Meme?

If you and your friend are constantly sending each other funny memes throughout the day, this game is for you. Match a caption to a photo card and try to create the funniest, wackiest memes to rival anything you see on the internet. The “This is fine” dog has nothing on you and your sense of humor. Note the game is designed for 17+ and up, but there’s also a Family Edition, if you’re looking for something even kids can enjoy.

  • Most promising review: “This is such a fun game! Great quality. Perfect for dates or family game night!”

Best for the Movie Buff

28. Kodak Luma 350 Mini Projector


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 it into your phone, computer or streaming stick, and it’s a cinch to set up. And because of its compact size, you can bring it everywhere you go, turning any blank wall into a large screen.

  • Most promising review: “This is the baddest little projector I have ever seen!!! Watched a movie on my phone with my son on the living room wall, (not a screen or anything). It was HD quality! CLEAR AND BEAUTIFUL!!!"

Best for the Sleeping Beauty

29. Slip Silk Pillowcase


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 kept our ringlets frizz-free overnight. It's made of 100 percent silk and comes in a good range of colors. They’ll be able to wake up every morning to a good hair day and no pillow creases on their face.

  • Most promising review: “It feels extra silky smooth and soft against my skin for sleeping and tames my hair from wild bedhead …I have purchased many different silk pillowcase brands and this is one of the overall higher ones, quality-wise."

Best for the Earth Crusader

30. EcoTools Makeup Brush Set


These makeup brushes are great. Not only do they come in a set that includes all the essentials, but they're also made of recycled materials, making for an eco-friendly gift that your Earth-conscious giftee will definitely appreciate. The set includes five different brushes and the brush handles are made with natural bamboo, so they’ll look great on any counter or vanity.

  • Most promising review: ”Soft to the touch, colorful, good quality.”

Best for the Meal Purist

31. Aerogarden Black Harvest Hydroponic Garden


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, so you always have exactly what you need. 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.

  • Most promising review: “Best part is that this is almost zero work. Top off the water every now and then (up to every day or two as the plants get bigger) and add two capfuls of plant food every two weeks when the light goes on. Could. Not. Be. Easier.”

Best for the Fashionista

32. Kate Spade Polarized Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Kate Spade

If your giftee can’t leave the house without a chic pair of shades, it’s time to add some new ones to her rotation. Available in two different colors, these sun-blockers are plenty on-trend and have a cat-eye frame that adds just the right amount of retro style and will look incredible on round or diamond faces. They have a UV protection coating, and a slightly oversized fit, perfect for those days when you don’t feel like putting on eye makeup.

  • Most promising review: “Fit well, coverage is great and they look fabulous.”

Best for the Skincare Savvy

33. Cooluli Mini Skincare Fridge


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. You can also use it to store a private stash of beverages and snacks in your room for those times you don’t feel like trekking to the kitchen.

  • Most promising review: “I absolutely love this fridge. It's so convenient and good for my little corner on my sink. It keeps all of my facial products cold. I didn’t even expect it to get that cold for the size it is, but I absolutely love this fridge. 10/10.”

Best for The Dapper Dude

34. Ray-Ban RB2140 Original Wayfarer Sunglasses


Nothing elevates a guy’s look like a pair of classic, well-crafted shades. Ray-Ban is the best in the biz, and we love the iconic RB2140 (first designed in Italy in 1952) as the topper for both days at the beach or even an afternoon wedding.

  • Most promising review: “Great sunglasses. These iconic sunglasses never go out of style.”

Best for the Breakfast Aficionado

35. Hoan The Original Bagel Slicer


Bagels are a pain 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 reportedly slices perfectly each and every time and even has a safety shield to protect their precious digits from harm. Don’t limit yourself to bagels either. Rolls, buns, muffins and more—get creative with your slicing.

  • Most promising review: “This is as close to a perfect product as I have ever seen. [It] works flawlessly, and requires little effort. If every product was this well designed and executed there wouldn't be a need to review them. Hard to improve on perfection.”

Best for the Serum Buff

36. Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C And Turmeric Face Oil

Sunday Riley

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. Apply a few drops morning and night and enjoy a brighter looking complexion.

  • Most promising review: “One of the best products I’ve ever purchased and the only vitamin C serum I’ve found that really works. Your skin will literally glow and radiate after using this. Worth every penny and lasts a long time as you only need a very little bit to cover your entire face.”

Best for the Nail Chameleon

37. Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish Set

Deborah Lippmann

This pack from Deborah Lippmann makes it possible for a polish fiend to get an at-home manicure they can feel good about. Your giftee will get six 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.

  • Most promising review: “Love these great neutrals. Perfect little bottles that can be used before they dry out.”

Best for the Concert-Goer

38. Adidas Originals Festival Crossbody Bag


This crossbody from adidas will come in handy for any regular concert-goer, as your pal 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. It has a zippered front pocket and slit pocket in the back to hold essentials you need to reach easily. An adjustable strap also means extra comfort.

  • Most promising review: “Small, sleek, and compact. Just a tad bit smaller than what I thought it would be however this product is a great buy and I use it every day. I’ve gotten many compliments…Super lightweight and fits everything I need. I highly recommend.”

Best for the Wine Connoisseur

39. Elixir Glassware Wine Glasses

Elixir Glassware

The unique square 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. Each glass is hand blown and made of genuine crystal, and they’re high-quality, durable and easy to hold (read: less spills). You can choose between a set of two or four glasses, with each glass holding a generous 14 ounces of liquid.

  • Most promising review: “These are beautiful wine glasses. They look very classy and are great for both red, white or the occasional bottle of bubbles.”

Best for Fans of Bubbles

40. SodaStream Terra Sparkling Water Maker


That La Croix obsession can really add up when it comes to your giftee’s grocery bill. With a SodaStream, they’ll be able to make their own sparkling water at home with whatever flavor they desire, and with a press of a button. Simply hook it up to a CO2 carbonator, and they’ll be well on their way to fizzing up their favorite beverages. Each cylinder makes up to 60 liters of water, and you won’t have to deal with all those pesky sparkling water bottles or cans piling up in your kitchen.

  • Most promising review: “The easy-to-use design allows me to create bubbly beverages at home with minimal effort. While the initial investment might seem high, the long-term cost savings and reduction in single-use plastic make it worthwhile.”

Best for the Tea Sipper

41. Cosori Electric Gooseneck Pour Over Kettle


This puppy is sleek, boils water faster than on the stove (three to five minutes, say shoppers) and boasts several temperature settings for whatever tea type you’re brewing  (white, green, oolong or black tee, or coffee). It has a function to keep your water warm in the kettle for up to an hour, so you can enjoy it later. And, because it has a gooseneck, it’s also ideal for pouring hot water slowly over coffee.

  • Most promising review: “It’s really the little things. When brewing water for a cup of tea it’s a little surprising to think that temperature is everything. Now instead of pensively watching a kettle to brew that perfect cup of green tea, I simply touch the button labeled green tea and I can go about my business til I hear the kettle beep that my water is ready! And there you have it, a perfect cup of green tea is born.”

  • Most promising review: “Love this game! We laugh and laugh and laugh at the crazy answers that come up to seemingly innocent questions. Definitely for adults with a good sense of humor that aren’t easily offended. It seems to be written by a bunch of stoned adolescent males, but who cares!? We all need a big laugh these days. Sometimes you can’t even read the cards because you’re laughing so hard. A weekly game night favorite.”
