How We Chose the Best Gifts Under $50

To curate the best gifts under $50, we vetted hundreds of products, looking for best-sellers and top ratings that resonate with our readers.

For Peak Hydration

1. Stanley Quencher Tumbler

What We Like

  • dishwasher- and travel-friendly
  • stainless steel with double-walled vacuum insulation
  • fits into car cupholders

What We Don’t Like

  • not spill-proof

Target

Everyone needs water. True. All water bottles are created equal. False. And the Stanley Quencher tumbler can prove it. The cult-favorite, stainless steel and dishwasher-friendly tumbler is travel-friendly, holding up to 40 fluid ounces of your favorite beverage thanks to its double-walled vacuum insulation that keeps drinks cold for up to two days or hot for up to seven hours. Basically, your coffee can stay piping hot and your ice can keep from melting all day long. Plus, it’s designed to fit in your car’s cupholder by incorporating a wide shape at the top that narrows at the base of the cup. It also comes with a screw-on lid that can be used in three resting positions, as demonstrated in this TikTok. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention the unmatched comfort grips on this baby. Thoughtful and functional in its design? Your current water bottle could never. Hurry up and snag one to gift now because the Stanley Quencher tumblers nearly always sell out, especially when they come in dreamy, muted hues like this Magnolia collection.

2. Abercrombie & Fitch Essential Crew Sweatshirt

What We Like

  • large range of sizes and colors
  • oversized fit with drop-shoulder design
  • “softAF” fabric

What We Don’t Like

  • not as soft as some of their other sweatshirts, according to some users

Abercrombie & Fitch

Sick of seeing the man in your life in the same old workout clothes? Gift him this classic sweater, for a look you can both get on board with—in fact, we’re almost positive you’ll want to steal this and wear yourself every chance you can get. “My son bought one of these sweatshirts when he was in San Francisco with his aunts a couple of years ago,” says Diane, an Abercrombie & Fitch reviewer. “He wears it constantly. It has continued to be his favorited sweatshirt because even after all the times he’s worn and washed it, it remains to be the softest and coziest sweatshirt that has kept its shape and integrity. A very well-made sweatshirt. So, I bought him two more and surprised him for his birthday. He smiled huge!” There’s a reason for that next-to-none comfortable fit, so allow us to break it down. It is made of a cotton and polyester blend, so it's as comfy his 10-year-old sweats, machine-washable, and lastly, available in a total of eight colors like dark grey and this brown, plus two lengths (regular and tall) so yes, he can actually coordinate this with his favorite sweats. (Sigh.)

3. Brightland Awake Olive Oil

What We Like

  • harvested from small family farms
  • cold-pressed
  • robust and bold flavors

What We Don’t Like

  • pricey

Brightland

This best-selling olive oil from Brightland is made from Arbequina olives harvested in November 2022 from small family farms located in California’s central coast. Within 90-minutes of harvest, the olives are cold-pressed and the result is a fresh and flavorful bottle of Awake. Whether you have homemade soup on the stove or grandma’s pasta recipe at the ready, this particular olive oil is suitable and safe to use for roasting or sauteing. The extra virgin olive oil has a robust and bold flavor profile that’ll brighten up your dishes with hints of nutty, peppery and buttery goodness. Mike was one of many reviewers who was astonished by the quality and taste of Brightland’s selections. “I love olive oil, but like a lot of folks, I suspect, I’ve never been exposed to artisan oils. These oils are delicious. I never thought to put olive oil on my eggs but here we are. I tried one of the recipes—I modified just a bit on the tomatoes [and] added olives all on a bed of spinach. The packaging and presentation are first rate. I’ve seen other reviews talk about the price. I agree it is a bit on the high side, but perhaps it will go down over time.” He suggests trying the Pizza oil ($32) next. Bring on the fried eggs, crispy potatoes and roasted veggies, courtesy of Brightland’s Awake.

What We Like

  • moisturizing
  • luxury beauty
  • travel-friendly

What We Don’t Like

  • expensive brand

Amazon

Your pal has probably heard us wax poetic about Sunday Riley skincare products at least a few times. But maybe they haven't taken the plunge yet. This power-packed, anti-aging skincare set features three moisturizing PureWow favorites, including C.E.O Vitamin C Brightening Serum, Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil and the Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment one editor deemed “the best product that has come across my desk in the last two years.” The Jewel Box Kit helped Claire O’Connor discovered the noteworthy formulations that purportedly smell divine and go on sheer. “I didn't expect to fall in love with these products, and I am a real minimalist when it comes to skincare. But I thought it was a minimal risk, pricewise, to just get this sampler kit. These little bottles lasted a LOT longer than I thought they would, and in that time (six weeks maybe) my 56-year-old dry, eczema-prone, rosacea-prone face was legitimately transformed. My favorite product is the lactic acid (Good Genes). I have no idea how it works, but together with the CEO brightening serum and Luna night-time oil, I am telling you my face has cleared up and looks bright, fresh, and healthy.” If you’re new to Sunday Riley’s products like O’Connor or want to snag pricey luxe beauty products at a discount, this box sampler is the way to go. They’re TSA-approved and a good value for money. You. Are. Welcome.

What We Like

  • claims to ease sore muscles
  • relaxing and calming scent
  • natural stress reliever

What We Don’t Like

  • may take time to see benefits

The Nue Co.

Mom will love this magnesium spray from The Nue Co. that was deemed one of PureWow’s top Mother’s Day gifts of 2023. Created for relief, the spray, formulated with lavender oil—a natural stress reliever— purportedly helps to ease sore muscles and spasms that might startle you awake. (Note: this is not a medical solution to insomnia or other sleep-related problems.) So whether she’s an avid gym-rat who suffers from tight, sore muscles or just need a little something calming when life gets hectic, this magnesium spray just might become mom’s new best friend. One editor uncovered that if she rubs this on her feet before bed, she falls asleep super-fast.

What We Like

  • ample space (exterior zipper pocket and roomy interior compartment)
  • multiple color options

What We Don’t Like

  • some reviewers note that the strap loosens and slips

lululemon

You like it, you love it and you want some more of it. It’s the lululemon belt bag that’s all over TikTok and almost always perpetually sold out. It’s made with a water-repellent material and features an exterior zippered pocket and roomy interior compartment that can feature your essentials the next time you hit the trails. “This belt bag has so much space,” raves one lululemon reviewer. “That I normally store in it is my phone (it’s an iPhone 13, so it’s pretty big—like all phones these days), my lip gloss, my various cards and some hair ties, and there is still enough room for [about] three more phones, another couple of lip glosses, cards and [around] 20 more hair ties—and that’s just the main compartment! There is still a back zippered spot that is able to hold lots of belongings! Absolutely love this belt bag!” We suggest you hurry up and snag yours before it sells out again if you want to check it out for yourself. Good news: The Everywhere belt bag is available in blue, purple, black, deep coal/black, orange, grey sage, white/black, white/red, black, navy, pink, caramel, pink pastel and this metallic silver. And guys, we can't express how rare this is enough (usually only one or two colors are restocked once a month).

What We Like

  • baked to order and shipped same-day
  • cookies stay fresh up to one week
  • freshly harvested coffee

What We Don’t Like

  • might be too sweet for some people

Levain Bakery

This New York City-based bakery brand has brick and mortars coast to coast, and the shops are beloved by customers not only for their cookies but also for the rich Columbian Devocion coffee, roasted in Brooklyn. Now you can treat anyone to that experience with this pound of coffee (it has notes of cacao, cherry, vanilla and almond) and Levain's signature assortment of cookies, including Chocolate Chip Walnut, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip and Oatmeal Raisin. There’s even an option to customize your cookie assortment by choosing from their many curated selections, like the fall cookie assortment or the chocolate lovers assortment. “One of my favorite things about living in NYC was the fact that I was always close to Levain Bakery, so receiving a cookie bundle with coffee is the sweetest (pun-intended) gift anyone can give me,” says PureWow associate fashion editor Stephanie Meraz. “They’re thick and rich, so I like to store them in the freezer and heat them in the oven when I’m ready for a satisfying dessert. After 10 minutes in the oven, they’re gooey, warm and taste like heaven.”

8. Beis On-the-Go Essentials Case

What We Like

  • easy-to-clean faux leather
  • slip pocket with compact mirror,
  • roomy (two compartments)

What We Don’t Like

  • one reviewer found it too small for a long travel

REVOLVE

The On-the-Go case is "Perfect for my makeup while traveling," writes one reviewer. "I already own the hanging cosmetic case from Beis, which I love, and now I can use this for additional items. The mirror is such a bonus!" Measuring 8 x 3 x 6, it's small enough to throw into your carry-on and its two zippered compartments are big enough to fit all those 3-ounce personal care items you're traveling with. PureWow wellness director Sarah Stiefvater recently discovered the brand thanks to the cult-like following on TikTok. She tested out the Weekender Bag while on a two-week vacation and arrived home a fan of its sleek look, roomy interior and many compartments. Similarly, the cosmetic case has earned its own stamp of approval, ranking as a Revolve best seller. It has a faux leather and poly-lining exterior that looks chic and is surprisingly durable, making it a breeze to clean off makeup marks or product spills. As the reviewer previously mentioned, there are two compartments on either size that capitalize on space for all your toiletries. But if you ask us, we still can’t get over that compact mirror detail. Here's to never being stranded without a mirror to get-ready, again. Huzzah!

In Good Taste

“I love that this lets me enjoy a glass with less waste and fresher wine,” says PureWow social content lead Emily Brozyna who often finds herself labeled as the only wine drinker in her household. For that reason, she appreciates In Good Taste’s French tasting kit because the company sends a six-pack of mini, single-serve French wine bottles that she can enjoy in one glass without the worry of letting a full bottle spoil. Besides the French Tasting Kit, Brozyna enjoys the Wild Child Flight ($65), which features Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé and a 2020 Pinot Noir, and White Wine Lovers ($49). There are also myriad of flights to choose from, in addition to the ones mentioned. So, is it Wine Wednesday, yet?

  • shorts may creep up the waist

Nordstrom

This knit matching pajama set is cozy, comfortable and down-right adorable thanks to that fun print (and there’s even more prints to choose from on the Nordstrom website, too). We also love the contrast piping that make this PJ set feel that much more luxe and the machine wash- and tumble dry-friendly Tencel and spandex super soft material. “I am extremely picky about how my pajamas feel,” says one Nordstrom reviewer. “I need them to feel soft and lightweight or else I am unable to sleep. I know…drama. I felt these in the store while walking by and I had to purchase. I bought black and immediately added more colors to my wish list. They are soft and dreamy, and wash and dry very well! I am a huge fan. I'm also a hot sleeper and need something that keeps me cool, and these are perfect for that. I am normally a size small in tops and bottoms, so I purchased a medium in these for a slightly loose fit. I definitely could have purchased a small, but I prefer the looser fit and am pleased with how they fit me.”

Rifle Paper Co.

Stumped on what to get the collector in your life who owns almost every mug you’ve come across? This 16-ounce porcelain mug by Rifle Paper Co. makes a great gift that’s cute, thoughtful and personal. Choose from nine designs that align with your giftee, from a book club style to a strawberry print to a “World’s Best Teacher” stamp, that comes embellished with gilded rims. Now, each time they take a sip of their tea or coffee, they’ll be reminded of the care and attention that went into gifting this. Because it’s made from an elegant porcelain, it will be more fragile than your everyday ceramic mug and therefore more susceptible to chips and cracks. We suggest you avoid putting this in the microwave or dishwasher at all costs.

Spruce up Sunday football and book club with this wooden apple cheese board from Kate Spade. It’s made from bamboo, which is a characteristically durable, lightweight, sustainable and sanitary material for a cutting board thanks to its natural moisture-resistant properties. One caveat, it’s incredibly strong, so while it won’t warp like most wooden boards, but it will be a bit tough on your knives. But this isn’t a replacement for your go-to cutting board for chopping vegetables. It’s more of clever serving platter. Plus, the apple board comes with a cheese knife made for all your charcuterie needs come party time. It’s so cute, you’ll want to take a bite out of it.

What We Don’t Like

ICYDK, entrepreneur Lauryn Evarts Bosstick is the beauty and brains behind lifestyle brand, The Skinny Confidential. That’s where this viral ice roller comes in. It garnered over 258 million views on TikTok, undoubtedly because of its aesthetically cute AF design AND beneficial properties. This large pink roller uses cold therapy to, according to the brand, reduce face and eye puffiness and improve the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Bosstick told PureWow in a recent interview that she uses her ice roller on a daily. Simply store it in the freezer and use it in the mornings upon waking, letting the cool stainless-steel roll along your face, neck and décolletage. The freezing temperature is said to promote blood circulation, ridding you of any puffiness and making the skin appear firmer, per the brand. Hot tip: Use the ice roller with your serums and creams to enhance the products’ absorption into your skin.

And since the products are all mini sized, the goodies are TSA-approved and a smart way to sample before you make the splurge on a full-sized, pricey bottle. Not to mention, all seven items in the curated box are from luxury brands like TOM FORD, La Mer, Kérastase and Dr. Barbara Strum, to name a few. The best part?

Sometimes you need a little motivation to get moving in the kitchen, and if music gets someone in your life going, then they'll love this cutting board.

You don’t need to hide this away when guests come over—in fact, it makes for a great conversation starter. One buyer purchased this for her parents who love music and cooking, saying, “I can't wait to give it to them. It is just so cute and unique. It will look great on display or in the kitchen for cutting. I am not sure if they will want to use it as a cutting board because it is just so impressive looking. It feels sturdy and I think they will love it!” As she warns, you may easily mistake this as an actual record when you’re reorganizing your vinyl collection. You can also customize it with a name and phrase. Here's what we're thinking: Bow Down To... The Grooviest Cook.

What better way to tackle that checklist than with a fresh notepad that just so happens to be splashed with flourishing floral patterns and bright colors? Nothing says personal quite like a darling notebook with your initial emblazoned on the cover. In fact, it may just be the most meaningful gift for that special someone like it was for one Anthropolgie customer in particular. “[I] bought the 'A' for my friend for her birthday. She shares a name with a mutual friend we recently lost and who we also associate with wildflowers, so the pattern is extra meaningful. There's a bit of gold guiding around the letter, which gives it a nice touch. The journal seems well-bound and just has plain lined paper inside. It's a good size to carry around in a purse,” she says.

What We Don’t Like

  • stains might not come out easily in wash

Amazon

Whether you’re in need of cotton rounds to take off nail polish or to remove makeup in a gentle way—because tugging at the skin is terrible and sleeping with makeup on is detrimental, to say the least—these sustainable and reusable cotton rounds are here to help. Highly absorbent and designed to last for years, investing in these reusables saves money while being an eco-conscious solution to a wasteful part of your beauty routine. Plus, they’re made from sustainable, Scandinavian wood and cotton fibers and purportedly won’t irritate sensitive skin.

“I was initially skeptical about the fact that these are made primarily of wood fiber, but after using them it makes complete sense...most cotton rounds absorb SO much of the product you’re using that you end up using too much and wasting it. Well, not with last round! I used a fraction of the amount of toner that I normally would, and it ALL ended up on my face. In fact, the round was even too saturated so I am ecstatic that my expensive toner will last much longer now. I was also apprehensive that these would be scratchy and rough due to the wood content but once you apply a liquid it turns into a very soft yet sturdy material that doesn’t shred and leave cotton fibers on your face like traditional rounds,” says one Amazon buyer. What’s more, these are ideal for travel thanks to the case included with purchase, making it a breeze to throw into your toiletry bag. Once you feel like it’s time for a wash, simply throw it in the machine wash and voilà, it’s nearly good as new.

Amazon

The Amazon Echo Dot is Amazon’s most popular smart speaker, which means it’s great for just about anyone. Have a nephew who loves blasting music? Got a father-in-law who always wants to know what the temperature is? We think you get where we’re going with this one. Earning 48,000 five-star on Amazon, the Echo Dot’s latest edition features improved audio sensibilities, including a deeper bass, clear vocals and vibrant sound. It’s easy and enjoyable to listen to a true crime podcast on Spotify and stream an album on Apple Music or Amazon Music. Not to mention, it has Bluetooth capabilities, so anyone in your family can connect and stream to the Amazon Echo Dot. And with the Alexa integration, you’ll be able to ask for weather updates, add items to your grocery list, snooze your morning alarm, ask tough questions or get an Alexa joke if you need a laugh. This gadget even pairs with your other smart devices like the Fire TV, creating a surround sound system throughout the house. If you’re the type who was scarred from Disney’s Smart House, this device is engineered with privacy controls (aka, a mic off button) and guarantees that it won’t sell personal information.

Old Navy

There’s just something about these fuzzy slide slippers that make you want to snuggle up on the couch and binge movies. These slippers are all shearling—a moisture-wicking and temperature-regulating material—so they're going to be a comfy go-to in all but the hottest weather. They have a soft, cushioned footbed and stylish cross-strap detail that your bestie will appreciate. And in three neutral tones, these faux fur kicks are bound to coordinate with her living room. We suggest sticking to her usual size or consider sizing up if her foot funs wide. “I wear a size 8.5-9 in shoes and purchased the slippers in a 9. My feet are on the wide side, and it takes some effort to shove them into these. However, the straps are soft, and they loosen up enough to hug my feet rather than squeeze them. They're pretty comfortable. I also like the style and the softness of the faux-fur,” says one reviewer.

And we just love how the floral additions complement the blooming aromas in Night Gardenia. Plus, it has a 71-hour burn time that’ll feel like the coziest addition for your coffee table, nightstand or bathtub. Here's a hot tip form the Anthropologie experts: If you want your candle to burn at a full, even pool and avoid a wax buildup around the glass, make sure you allow your candle to burn until the wax pool melts all the way to the edge. Apparently, candle’s wax has a memory that prevents and allows it to burn to how it’s treated on the first light.

Gaining traction as one of the best cookbooks of the year, according to NPR and Food 52, it features uncomplicated recipes that promote improvisation, and it has plenty of visual lessons that’ll teach you chef secrets (like how to balance flavors like a pro). In true Baz style, the recipes and layouts are easy to follow, engaging, amusing and aesthetically pleasing enough to display on your kitchen countertop. It just might put your other cookbooks to shame, like it did to one Amazon reviewer. “This is the first cookbook that I want to cook my way through. (I probably own a hundred cookbooks so that is saying something). I have made about half a dozen dishes so far and they have all been very tasty and come out looking fairly like the pictures in the book. So far, our favorite dish is the swaddled chicken thighs which are so good! The broccolini with dates did not sound appetizing but are actually amazing, so I suggest trying everything once even if the flavor combinations seem different or unappetizing.” There are even dozens of QR codes throughout the book leading you to short videos of Molly demonstrating proper techniques and kitchen skills. Suddenly, whipping up chorizo and chickpea carbonara and perfecting the famous Molly Baz Cae Sal (aka, Caesar salad) doesn’t seem nearly as daunting as it previously did.

From there, Scent Lab analyzes your preferences and curates a scent or scents to send to you. According to the brand, your second send will smell even better since it uses AI to refine your profile based on your feedback from the original intake.

Well, don’t knock it ‘till you try it because it just might surprise you like it did one reviewer, who found a candle scent blend they would have never thought to try. “This blend is absolutely perfect! The use of vanilla and palo santo together was something that I never would've considered even though they're some of my favorite scents, so I'm glad Scent Lab thought to have me try it.

The candle also burned evenly without any tunneling,” they add. Oh, and we almost forgot to mention that the candle is loaded with all the good stuff and none of that icky crap—i.e., toxic ingredients and chemicals.

Himalayan salt lamps don't just add a warm, pink glow to any space; they’re also said to have several health benefits like cleansing the air (but more on that in a second), helping soothe allergies and boosting mood and sleep. That’s because they’re considered a natural ionizer, boating properties that claim to neutralize positively charged articles. The result? More purified air.

What We Like

  • real flowers treated to stay fresh up to one year
  • choice of 24 color options for rose and choice of 17 color options for base material
  • complimentary greeting card

What We Don’t Like

  • hard to clean dust off crevices of the petals

Venus et Fleur

Want to send a little heartfelt quelque-chose that's going to remind them how you're just crazy about them? Send them this little two-inch Eternity rose that's been dyed and treated to stay fresh for up to a year set in a round box inspired by luxurious Parisian-hat boxes. There are 24 rose color options (like a baby blue, rose gold, pearl or ruby red) to choose from and 17 base color options that’ll tailor your mini arrangement to your recipient’s tastes. Handcrafted, these flowers stay as fresh as your love (feel free to write that on the complimentary greeting card that comes with the gift purchase). “I received a Venus Et Fleur arrangement from over a year ago, and it still looks like I just got it yesterday. It’s such a thoughtful, long-lasting gift that’s full of pure magic and smells incredible! While the smell no longer wafts around the room as it once did, if I put my nose to it, I can pick up hints of that signature rose fragrance. My sister’s husband used to gift her an arrangement every year for their anniversary, so she has them spread throughout her house and they’ve managed to hold up almost a decade later. I will note that I have some difficulty cleaning the dust from the crevices of the petals, but c’est la vie,” says associate fashion editor Stephanie Meraz.

For the Person Who Never Shows Up Empty-Handed

52. Neiman Marcus 8 Oak Lane Wine Bottle Carrying Clutch Bag

What We Like

  • molded spot hold a 750ml wine bottle
  • high-quality materials
  • built-in credit card slots

What We Don’t Like

  • small snap closure may not be as robust

Neiman Marcus

We all have that one friend who notoriously shows up with a wine bottle in hand everywhere she goes. So she’ll get a kick when she receives this kooky clutch from you. One customer “bought it as a gift at a birthday luncheon, [and] it was a “HIT.” Everyone was talking about it! I would definitely recommend this product very ingenious! Love the whole idea about it—wine in a handbag! It made the party!” The stylish bright red clutch is made of EVA, PVC and polyester materials, and there’s a molded spot with two adjustable straps which that hold a 750ml wine bottle. Everyone knows you can’t show up empty handed…and the same can be said about your wallet. That’s why we appreciate that the clutch features two built-in card slots to hold a credit card and ID card. And there are numerous ways to style this: claw it, stuff it under your armpit on the go or dangle it on your wrist using the wristlet.

What We Like

  • lightweight poly-elastance, moisture shedding fabric
  • won’t bunch

What We Don’t Like

  • thin fabric might not be suitable for below freezing temps

Tracksmith

When someone is logging the miles, unless they're doing it in perfect 65-degree or above weather, they're in danger of hand chapping. Prevent that with these gloves which are engineered so that your runner can fiddle with their phone or fitness watch without taking the gloves off—and the fuzzy, absorbent hand back is made for the odd mid-stride nose wipe. And it’s purportedly great at shedding away any sweat, you know, if you’re a hand sweater. It’s made from the brand’s Inverno Blend fabric, which is comprised of polyester and elastane, and is machine washable. “They fit so well,” says one customer. “I really needed lightweight gloves that fit without being bulky or bunched up. These have just the perfect amount of stretch. They're just warm enough for my cold morning runs in the dark and perfect for layering when it goes below 18 degrees.” The butter soft gloves come in three colors (black, navy and lagoon blue) and two sizes (S/M and L/XL) that’ll look and feel so luxe on your next brisk run.

The vibrations are also really strong and is great to also run along your skin. I also think it’s pretty quiet too...The one thing I noticed straight away was how smooth it is! It’s a great material easy for inserting and removing, do make sure to use lubricant!” Noted.

Nonna and Pops are going to love this gift once they find out that it’ll display photos of the grandchildren all the time without the hassle of working a touch screen or replacing a battery. This remote-controlled digital frame is 8.5 x 7 inches (basically, the size of a traditional picture frame), and it showcases up to 32 GB worth of photos at 800 x 600 resolution. Not to mention it's also incredibly easy to use…all you have to do is plug it in the wall, stick a USB or a sim card in and voila, thus begins the automatic slideshow. “I bought this for my mother who is 83,” says one Amazon reviewer. “She loves to look at pictures and since she doesn't understand smart phones or advanced technology, this is perfect. I have put over 1,000 pictures on a flash drive for her. I update the flash drive every couple of months so she can have new pictures to look at. This product is easy to understand and use. I leave the flash drive in the frame and all she has to do is turn the power button on. She absolutely loves it and will sit and watch the entire slide show instead of watching TV. The picture quality is great, and it automatically turns the photos upright. I highly recommend this product. I am going to order my dad one too. It really brings joy to my mom's life.”

“I’ve always had an affinity for lip products, probably because my lips were one of my biggest insecurities growing up—thank you, to the middle school boys who used to tease me. One day, I decided to embrace my full lips, and I’ve never turned back,” says Meraz. “The REFY lip sculpt liner in Blush is one of the prettiest, most natural hues I’ve come across. It applies like butter and has a twist function, so you won’t have to deal with a pencil sharpener that seems to never shave down one side. (IYKYK.) If you ask me, it’s the best everyday lip that’ goes on matte and has a light pink undertone. Oh, and this product is dual ended, so if you pull it apart, you’ll find a setting brush that’ll make this baby last all-day long without smudging or coming off when you eat. I know I just bought myself two of the shades, but this is a great gift idea…hint, hint, mom, sister, anyone!”

What We Don’t Like

  • wish there were more affirmations

Amazon

“If you are into self-care and manifesting, this journal is for you! I’ve gone through many journals but what I love in particular about this one is that it has space to journal daily along with inspirational affirmations. Whether you’re just getting into affirmations or [are] years into your self growth journey, this journal will help bring you closer to your goals,” says one reviewer., Jennifer Worman—a social media influencer, blogger of Red Soles & Red Wine and single mom of two boy—wrote a workbook on how to become the CEO of your life. For less than three minutes of your day, you’ll read an affirmation designed to help you attract confidence, abundance and attract love. The idea behind the manifestation technique is thought as one way to reprogram your subconscious through repetition, eventually leading you to seek out and attract more positive experiences. As manifestation and mindset coach Lea Fuentes previously told us, it's a step further from idealizing. In fact, “It’s actually saying, ‘OK, I am asking the universe for this thing,’ and as a result the universe puts together the pieces to bring it to you,” she says. So what’re you waiting for?

You know that one friend who lives and breathes all things organization (we’re looking at you, Virgo)? Well, we just found the gift that’ll make their heart skip a beat. It’s a wellness journal and daily planner in one, filled with three months of daily prompt pages designed to unlock your full potential. We recently spoke to AAPI founders (and sisters) of the small business, Amenities, to talk about their first innovative product. "For 15 plus years now, I've embraced the world of journals and planners,” says co-founder Monica Su.

“My journey has taken me through thousands of pages of blank leather-bound journals, structured dated planners, and even scientific wellness journals. Yet, throughout this journey, I've encountered a consistent challenge: the constant shuffle between multiple notebooks. I yearned for a single, versatile tool that could seamlessly blend my personal journaling with the pursuit of a productive, balanced day—a tool that offered flexibility beyond the confines of traditional planners. The wellness journals I encountered often overwhelmed me with their intense prompts, leaving me longing for something more approachable and time efficient. Motivated by this desire, I set out to create 'The Daily,' an all-in-one gratitude and productivity journal that makes setting a positive mindset and creating momentum towards your goals into an easy, everyday practice.” It may just alter your mindset around tasks, morphing a traditional to-do checklist into a get-to-do checklist grounded in appreciation. And did we mention that the cover is in a neutral linen? *Swoons*
