A pair of light-up chopsticks for when they need the help of the force to get them through a meal.


Promising review: “Fantastically fun to use. Even though these are plastic/acrylic they are no more difficult to use than the plastic chopsticks at Chinese restaurants because they are tapered like Japanese chopsticks. They are a little longer than a standard chopstick carrying case, but the fun factor offsets this. I got two pairs, one did not light up correctly. Seller replaced that chopstick within days!!!” —poidog

Get it from Amazon for $14.97.


A bottle of Mike’s Hot Honey you’ll quickly wonder how you ever lived without! Seriously, it’s spicy, sweet, and tastes SO good on pizza.


Promising review: “Saw this on a Food Network show and decided to try! LOVE IT! Great honey taste with just a bit of heat at the end. My husband loves ‘hot’ foods and even grows his own peppers to put on anything. He really likes this on his French toast and I like it with peanut butter. However, I just made baked beans and added a tablespoon of Mike’s Hot in addition to the brown sugar (reduced amount) and they were the BEST baked beans ever! I going to tell Mr. Bush and Duke about Mike’s Hot Honey!” —Ritakc

Get it from Amazon for $8.48.


A desktop Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy. Hi. I’m Elena, President and CEO of Elena’s Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy Emporium and Warehouse. Thanks to a shipping error, I am now currently overstocked on Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guys and I’m passing the savings on to yoooou!


Promising review: “I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the nine-volt battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next! As I turned on the wacky waving inflatable tube man I knew I had a friend for life. Someone you can really count on cheering you up when you are feeling down. He brought me such joy I started to cry with laughter and happiness.” —Robert Wurstner

Get it from Amazon for $9.99. You might also want to throw in this very helpful book filled with life lessons.


A delicious box of British treats filled with 10 of the top-selling Cadbury British chocolate bars that they may or may not eat in one sitting.


Promising review: “Yooooo these British people know what’s up! Dat Double Decker doe 😱😱😱 But seriously, these candy bars are amazing! I had my doubts about the Picnic bar but it’s really, really good. Personal favorite so far (still two I haven’t eaten yet) was the Starbar. Peanut butter, caramel, rice crispy pieces, chocolate… What’s not to love, really? Why the heck don’t they sell these in America dammit?! I threw mine in the fridge as soon as I got them. I pull one out about a couple of minutes before I eat it, so it’s still cool and doesn’t melt all over the place. Works great. This chocolate really does MELT on contact with just about anything that’s not refrigerated. Be forewarned, don’t eat ANY of these candy bars while wearing white. But also keep it in mind when taking bites. Smaller bites are better. Otherwise, you might find yourself with a huge mouthful of semi-melted chocolate and nougat, trying not to drool. Er, that might potentially happen to someone other than me.” —So & So So & So

Get it from Amazon for $14.49+ (available in a bag or box). You can also get a small tub filled with snack-sized treats.


A fierce AF mad libs you’d better buy bitch or risk being forced to sashay away.


Promising review: “This is a really fun product for fans of the show. Combines the fun of mad libs with references to the show. The little stories always start out pretty hysterical. It’s pretty slim but long, so if you have a bag big enough to carry a book around in, you can slip this in there with it.” —BookMonster

Get it from Amazon for $4.99.


A set of 50 perfect little vinyl stickers they can use to fully describe their day to life in the office.


Promising review: “These stickers are freaking glorious. I got it as a gift for my sister and she loves them. Now to find a place to slap all these stickers on. The stickers aren’t the thickest, I believe they are two mil vinyl but they are vinyl so they will hold up over time. It doesn’t seem that they are UV protected so you might run into fading down the road if used outside or on your car window, but for the price of a whole stack of stickers — it’s definitely worth it. A chance to throw meme stickers in public spaces is a welcomed task at hand, *dadjokeincoming* just don’t get into any sticky situations with the police.” —davidbuysthings

Get the set from Amazon for $7.99. There is also this great set if you wanna get them an even hundred stickers.


A super helpful chart filled with all the best insults they could ever possibly deliver to all their foes.


Promising review: “I bought this poster for my friend, who loves all things, Shakespeare. The quality is absolutely breath-taking; it looks even better than advertised online. Words cannot describe the look on my friend’s face when she opened this gift. She absolutely loved it and cannot stop talking about it. Excellent purchase!” —Teacher on a Budget

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes). And if they’re really big Shakespeare fans get them these adorable lip balms too.


A magically inspired cookbook filled with the recipes that all your favorite wizards would probably love.


Promising review: “My absolute favorite is Kreacher’s French Onion soup. I love having that on a cold day, or need to use up onions and beef broth. Absolutely delicious! Their roasted chicken recipe is the best one I’ve found (even better than Betty Crocker and The Joy of Cooking). The instructions are simple, and the flavor for the chicken comes out perfect every time. No trussing the bird or using a lid. I tweak the recipe a little by adding potatoes, and half a cup more water because I use slightly bigger birds and a bigger roasting pan. I really enjoy the history included about the cuisine, along with where in the book the food item was mentioned. If you are a Harry Potter-head, then this is a great addition to the collection of paraphernalia related to the world of Harry Potter. Excellent cookbook to own, and excellent as a gift if you have a friend.” —MB48

Get it from Amazon for $10.95. And it might be worth adding these whimsical bamboo cooking spoons.


A changing sequins pillow cover that transforms from a sparkling piece of home decor to one of the greatest moments in TV history.,

Promising review: “Bought this for a coworker who loves The Office! It’s great quality! I ordered a random pillow insert in the same size 16 x 16 and it was perfect! So funny and such a talking point in a household!” —jessica

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors and designs). This is just the case, so if you wanna make it a little gift set get the throw pillow that fits right in.


A box of tea filled with delicious flavors and amazing literary quotes — these bags are just asking to be in the opening credits of a rom-com!


Promising review: “These are really cute and the tea has a great flavor — even tea snobs should be pleased with it 🙂 They come sealed in a plastic bag inside the box. I would buy this again. The outer packaging is quite nice and sturdy, and would make a great gift.” —jmp

Get a pack of 25 from Amazon for $13.50.


A charming 300 large piece jigsaw puzzle to help them see their inner strength.


Promising review: “I ordered this for my friend’s daughter because I love cats and Norman Rockwell, and so does she. However, I couldn’t resist temptation and finished the 300-piece in one afternoon. It was that much fun I’m sure she will appreciate it as much as I did.” —sylviabasch

Get it from Amazon for $10.99. And don’t forget to pick up a puzzle saver that’ll let them store there puzzle in between sessions.


A pair of cozy crew socks that’ll make the kind of demands that need to be made.

California Social Hour on Amazon Handmade

Promising review: “I bought these along with a bag of Hot Cheetos as a stocking stuffer for my teen daughter. She loved them.” —Heather Franco

Get it from California Social Hour on Amazon Handmade for $14.99. And since the reviewer recommeneded it, how about throwing in a bag of Hot Cheetos — or a pack of 40 bags.


A bidet, because I can almost guarantee it’ll change their life!


Promising review: “One of the delights when I have traveled to France, is having a bidet. When we replaced our toilets, I added this product to my toilet. Besides loving the clean feeling a bidet gives, we live rurally and have a septic tank. I want to decrease the paper products that I flush. My husband installed the bidet and the toilet. He felt the install was simple. One hitch was tightening the connection between the bidet tubing and the toilet connection. Once he got it tight, leaking ceased. The bidet itself works well on both low and high setting. I noticed that in order to get the spray device to drop down, you need to go first to the high setting, then you can back down to low. I was concerned that the water being unheated would be a problem, but it isn’t. So far, I love this!” —Genevieve Rohan

Check out our in-depth review of a similar bidet!

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.


A coloring book filled with 37 of the most notorious serial killers the world has ever known…and they get to bring them to life with their mad coloring skills.

Promising review: “This book is amazing!!!! I wasn’t sure what I’d get, but I took a chance. This exceeded my expectations! It’s a must-have for any serial killer fan. The illustrations sum up the murder history so well.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $7.92. There’s also a pretty cool female serial killer coloring book. And make sure to grab some colored pencils to make it a set.


A pack of ultra-moisturizing face masks formulated with mineral-rich Icelandic water and a perfect mix of vitamins to help them get the bright and clean skin of their dreams.


Promising review: “Feels so moisturizing! And the smells are not overwhelming. I have used a lot of sheet masks and these definitely have the quality of the much more expensive brands.” —micaela c.

Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $10.98.


A dino-mite coated bronze T-rex necklace with a super-sweet and loving message printed on the packaging making it the perfect gift.


Promising review: “I purchased this necklace as a gift for a friend who loves dinosaurs. It was super cute and the little saying on the paper is nice too. The T-rex itself is a little small but I liked that about it because it makes it more subtle when it’s worn (I tend to like nerdy jewelry that is more subtle until people really see it up close). The recipient loved it and put it on right away too. :)” —melrom

Get it from Amazon for $13 (available in silver, gold, and rose-gold-plated brass and check out the matching earrings). There are also really cute brontosaurus and triceratops versions.

A pack of really yummy ChapStick that’ll have them asking for some more.


Promising review: “I’m obsessed with ChapStick. We lose and finish tubes left and right between me, my husband, and my kids. I can never have too many. I loved these flavors! The graham cracker one was my favorite!” —Jessica Avery

Get the pack of three from Amazon for $4.80.


A copy of The Art of Eating through the Zombie Apocalypse for all their end of the world survival needs — because the end of the world is coming y’all. There is just no way it’s not.


Promising review: “This book is AWESOME. It has all kinds of recipes, as well as a DIY section that tells you how to make an oven in the wild or traps for different animals. It has guides to tell you what plants are what and how to deal with them. I was incredibly impressed by how in-depth this book actually is! I would highly recommend for anybody who loves nature things or even a doomsday prepper!” —Kaiti

Get it from Amazon for $17.96. Plus, check out this handy survival guide


A handmade bourbon lip balm so they can wet their whistle even when they’re not having a drink.

The Little Flower Soap Co. on Amazon

Promising review: “Because you’re wondering: Yes, a nice, smooth bourbon smell and taste. Not overpowering. This isn’t lip *gloss* for a junior high schooler. It’s lip balm. For grownups. As for the balm part, so far it seems quite moisturizing without being oily. I’m glad I ordered four at once.” —C. Romeo

Get it from The Little Flower Soap Co. on Amazon Handmade for $7.79 (also available in a margarita flavor and moscow mule).


A pocket-sized drawing journal filled with 642 prompts to help bring out their inner artist.


Promising review: “Bought this for my very artistic 13-year-old daughter. She’s forever asking, ‘What should I draw?’ I crossed my fingers when I ordered this, as we’ve tried many other books to inspire her that didn’t. When I gave it to her, I was expecting a lukewarm response. However, as she thumbed through the book, she started giggling and smiling and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I even got a spontaneous hug. She ran to the door when her dad got home to show him the book. And I think that the 642 options may just keep her inspired for a few weeks! 😉 Any book that can charm a 13-year-old girl is a keeper in my mind!” —Fascinated viewer

Get it from Amazon for $9.13 (also available in a writing journal). You may also want to grab a set of drawing and sketching pencils.


A gorgeously scented soy candle, because they don’t need no man IRL.


Promising review: “I wish they made a cologne out of this scent. It lasted a lot longer than other candles I have purchased on Amazon. I would definitely buy a lot of different ones and find the one that fits your personality. I am not floral and I am not into super-strong scents — I like to be able to breathe and this set a nice tone.” —David B

Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in 29 scents and two sizes).


A scratch-off bucket list poster so they can mark off places, classic movies, or songs as they discover and explore them.


Promising review: “I love, love, love this poster. Took less than two weeks to arrive from overseas. The package arrived in good condition and the posters are a nice thick card stock. Great gift for movie lovers.” —Irishminx

Get it from Amazon for $13.50+ (available for music, movies, and places).


A pop-up encyclopedia about dinosaurs that’ll be a roaring good time.


Promising review: “Gave this to a 5-year-old boy and it was an instant hit with him and the whole family. Does need adult assistance to protect the pop-ups as others have said, but it is made of nice strong paper, not fragile. Illustrations are beautiful and the construction of the pop-up is amazing — the T. rex’s head popping out when you open the page is genius and humorous. One of the small pop-ups has one dinosaur taking a bite of another — such lively portrayal of these prehistoric creatures. (How do they know T. rex’s eyes are green?) I will be buying other books by this author, he is so good.” —M. S. K.

Get it from Amazon for $29.67.


Promising review: “I gave it five stars because it’s a five-star product. I’ve been constipated for days before this product arrived and within minutes of having it in my possession, the unicorn magic took over.” —Mr. and Mrs. Wright

Get it from Amazon for $24.99. And since everyone is gonna be wanting to check out their new bathroom accessories, throw in a handy little bathroom guest book so they can chronicle all their visitors.


A copy of Monopoly Cheaters Edition for your brother — that momma’s boy has been skimming those multicolored dolla’ dolla’ bills for too damn long and it’s time he paid.


Promising review: “I purchased this with the intent to give to my older brother for a birthday gift. It was somewhat a gag gift as he was always accused of cheating at Monopoly growing up, and to this day is still accused of ‘cheating’ on other things, although he does so playfully. He loved it, could not wait to play with his kids, especially since it was stated that a game would only be an hour or so.” —Aaron Nichols

Get it from Amazon for $12.59.


A portable Bluetooth mini printer that’ll have you turning your fire Instagram pics into IRL framed beauties.


Promising review: “Wonderful purchase! Actually, my husband bought this for me as a gift. I was dropping major hints and finally, it stuck. The no-ink technology is amazing. This portable printer is so portable and can easily travel. Having the ability to print your pictures wherever you go has changed my craft world! As a scrapbooker and planner nerd, I like to add pictures to document things. These 2×3 prints are a perfect size. I use apps to create collages or different-size pictures. The quality is decent for a no-ink printer. Very lightweight and user-friendly.” —FloridaChief

Get it from Amazon for $88.99+ (available in four colors and three packages).


A very magical game of Uno that’ll have them putting a vanishing spell on all their cards and yelling “UNO!” in no time.


Promising review: “Very fun for my little Harry Potter fan! We love Uno and card games! The Harry Potter version just seemed like extra decoration, but there’s actually an additional Harry Potter exclusive Wild Card with a different rule! I will say, if you don’t know the colors for the houses, the rules are a bit confusing, as it refers to ‘Slytherin’ card instead of ‘green’ card. But my HP fan can quickly tell me which house belongs to which color!” —Mel

Get it from Amazon for $5.99.


A very handy book that could honestly, save their life — or just answer all those questions they’re maybe too embarrassed to even google.

Promising review: “This book is SO much fun! It provides the answers to so many questions that are fun, interesting, and occasionally historical! The outline of the book is fairly simple. The question (sometimes silly, sometimes intriguing) is posed as a heading, and then there is a quick but detailed answer. These answers are a few paragraphs to a little over a page. The answers are concise but completely filled with great information. The title of the book suggests that all the questions might be crude or overly silly, but that’s not it at all! Although some of the questions are silly (for example besides the title, ‘why don’t birds fall off branches when they’re asleep’, or ‘why do dogs have wet noses’), there are so many more kinds of questions in this book! Some of them are vaguely scientific (such as, ‘what causes Parkinson’s Disease’ or ‘how does general anesthesia work’), while others are historical (such as, ‘how did Mother’s Day originate’). Although they are so different, all these questions are really interesting, with compelling answers and well-researched responses. I really enjoy this book. I expect it’s usually used as a ‘bathroom reader’ but I read it all in one sitting! It’s so much fun, and I learned a lot!” —Elizabeth Elle

Get it from Amazon for $11.66.

A bag of Death Wish — the world’s strongest ground coffee, because maybe you actually don’t like them all that much.


Promising review: “I’m sold. I bought this to keep me alert and focused at work. By my second cup, I no longer needed a keyboard or mouse, as I was able to control my computer directly by thought. By the third cup, I could hear colors and smell sounds. After my fourth cup, I decided to burn off some of the excess energy with a quick jog, and ended up finishing the Kessel Run in 11 parsecs flat! Seriously…buy this stuff!” —Erick W.

Get a one-pound bag from Amazon for $19.99. Maybe include a pour over coffee maker or check out the cold brew version if they like their coffee like their heart — icy.

Promising review: “Have you ever woken up and immediately wanted to destroy something? Of course you have. Nary a day goes by that causing a bit of destruction wouldn’t make the rest of the day so much easier to handle. I’ve woken up and smashed alarm clocks with hammers. It got expensive even replacing the cheapest alarm clocks daily. I’ve broken a few eggs (and enjoyed the ensuing omelets that came with it). I even crashed my car into some medians on the morning commute, but after three times, my insurance company told me they frown upon such behaviors. Then came this. Every morning I wake up and hold in my rage long enough to amble over to the bubble calendar and start my day off my popping, and utterly destroying, the current day’s representative bubble. It has done wonders for my psyche and I no longer have the urge to ruin other household goods or roadside attractions.” —SW3K
