A 2020 bubble wrap calendar, because they’ll enjoy the daily thrill (and respite from the dumpster fire that is the world right now) of popping each bubble.
A spinning makeup brush cleaner to cut down the time it takes them to wash and dry their brushes (if they were even doing it all). Then they can spend all the time they’ve just saved telling you what a wonderful gift-giver you are.
A mystery box of cat hats for the feline fan who adores dressing up their fur baby. Who knows, asserting your dominance and humiliating your cat into wearing a BANANA on his head may finally force him to accept your love.
A pack of Pulleez hair ties so they aren’t ripping out hair every time they let down their ponytail. They simply pull their hair through the holder and then slide the toggle until the ponytail is secure. And when they want to take their hair down, they squeeze the toggle to release their hair.
The Wand, a mini handheld filter that may help reduce their wine-induced headaches. This lil guy is designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. It’s also supposed to revive oxidized wine so you don’t have to toss an open bottle.
An instructional yoga mat so beginners aren’t looking around wondering what the heck is going on when the instructor says to get into Warrior 1. It’s also great for more experienced yogis who want to practice proper hand and foot placement.
A Stedi Pedi that’ll convince them that a salon-worthy pedicure at home *is* possible (because who wants to pay $35 to get their toes done?).
A wine bottle puzzle if they’re the type of person who likes to work hard for their gifts. Their reward for cracking the code: a delicious bottle of wine!
A coloring book that stretches 17 feet to occupy your chronically bored friend for the next 72 years, give or take a year.
A retinol cream if your beauty-obsessed friend is always going on about how chemical exfoliants are better than physical ones (they’re right!). It’s earned holy grail status among some reviewers for its ability to eliminate fine lines and reduce the appearance of dark spots and acne scarring.
Or, a hyaluronic acid serum because it is really freaking cold outside and this will give their skin a much-needed boost of hydration. Reviewers with sensitive skin rave about this serum, saying it’s never irritated their skin and has reduced redness, pore size, and frequency of breakouts — aka the Triple Crown of skincare.
A pair of statement earrings so they feel like they’re on vacation even if they’re trapped at their desk and the office manager refuses to crank up the heat even though it’s 40 degrees outside.
An un-bee-lievably adorable beeswax candle with an impressive 70-hour burn time that I 100% guarantee no one else will buy them.
A pet nose pendant kit for the friend who wishes they could take their pet with them wherever they go — and now they can!
A bath bomb, because this is basically the adult version of those 25-cent games where you’d spin the wheel and get a plastic carton with a surprise toy inside. There’s a ring hidden in the bath bomb, and each one is valued between $15 and $5,000!
A robot window cleaner that’ll do the dirty work for them so they can spend their time doing things they *actually* enjoy — like congratulating you on such an awesome gift. Reviewers also use it to clean their shower walls and even their floors!
A screen magnifier so their lazy butt can watch movies from their phone and still see every detail. (I mean, the TV is right there but OK, you do you!)
A pro lens kit to help them capture every ‘gram-worthy moment in high definition, which will basically make up for you not getting them an iPhone 11 Pro.
A self-watering planter if they’re the forgetful type. The long tongues soak up water that feeds the plants, which means watering their green bbs is one less thing they need to remember.
Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?, a delightful book written by a funeral director that’ll satisfy their morbid curiosity and answer questions like, “Will my hair keep growing in my coffin after I’m buried?”
Or, an equally terrifying (OK, I kid) book called Microwave Cooking for One for anyone who needs to step up their dinner game with recipes like chicken parmesan, asparagus soup, and chocolate custard.
A set of stackable coasters so they can enjoy a water ring-free table *and* their own cactus creations.
A USB Wi-Fi adapter to speed up their internet — because heaven forbid they can’t get their memes to load — so they can find the perfect gift for you!
