1. For Your Hot-Mess Friend
A Wreck-This Journal
VERIFIED REVIEW: “Not gonna lie, this is probably the coolest journal you’ll ever see. . . . Wreck This Journal is here to inspire you.” —Buzzfeed
2. For The “Monica” Friend
The Unofficial “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” Cookbook
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I recently started watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. with my son (he is obsessed with Phoebe and has started dressing like her). When I found this book I was delighted. We love to cook together, and since reading this book all we cook is F.R.I.E.N.D.S recipes. I have posted the photo for the “Engagement Ring Lasagna” which is our current favorite, but we are equally looking forward to trying the Christmas caramel candies and fabulous flan. Highly recommend! Especially if you have a very creative child who loves F.R.I.E.N.D.S — these recipes are simple enough for children to follow with a little supervision. My son cooks me dinner more often than not these days.
3. For The MUA-Mamas
A Travel Caboodle— A modern update on a ’90s staple
CUSTOMER REVIEW: This was really my co-worker's idea. She showed up at a conference with this, and it was full of pens, highlighters, sticky notes, white out tape, etc. It was so cute and it had a mirror!!! I was so impressed that I asked her about it and found out it was Caboodles!!! Who knew? What a great way to carry school supplies in my bag without them getting damaged or leaking or lost at the bottom of the bag! Love it! -Amy C
4. For The Old-School MUA-Mamas
The Original Caboodle— A ’90s staple
PERSONAL REVIEW: I own one. I don't know how I traveled or lived without. CUSTOMER REVIEW: I have 4 of these now. We gave one to my oldest daughter a year ago and then moved to a new house where the bathroom vanities have no drawers. Now everyone has a personal caboodle. I like that it helps with my minimalism. While I have other stacking storage for non-everyday items, the caboodle is great for my daily things. I use the too for my toothbrush, floss and dental things, chapstick, I also have my eye cream and serum and face masks below. It’s perfect. :) i love the pearl white. My son has the doodle blue, little one has the mermaid color theme and oldest has pink. -Rian
5. For The Blingy-Babes
An interchangeable Wire Charm-Bracelet DIY Kit
CUSTOMER REVIEW: Love it 😍 Very Beautiful Charms. So many options to choose from. Charms are not flimsy or hallow. Very detailed! -Shermain
6. For The Bangin Chick (w/ No Time)
A Set of Chic Bangles
PERSONAL REVIEW: It's an effortlessly chic addition to any outfit.
7. For Your Girl w/ The Aesthetic Vibe
A Rainbow Prism Suncatcher
Cats love this. It’s like 100 laser pointers.
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I can't sing praises loud enough for these prisms! My toddler loves the rainbows all over the livingroom. She yells "rainbows come back" every time the sun shines through the window! Ended up buying these as gifts for our family as well as an extra set for my home. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE!
8. For Your Hippie-Friend w/ The Aesthetic Vibe
A Dangling Rainbow Prism Suncatcher
9. For The Wino-Women (and Men)
A Wine Purifier
- REMOVES HISTAMINES AND SULFITES, THE PUREWINE ADVANTAGE – No other wine purifier removes BOTH the histamines and sulfites that trigger those unwanted wine allergies and sensitivities. The Wand purifies ALL red, white and sparkling wines WITHOUT changing the natural flavor, aroma or color of the wine
CUSTOMER REVIEW: These wands are super easy to use and we have been able to enjoy multiple bottles of wine together with no reactions! I can even tell that it aerates very well and helps bring out some of the flavors when I would compare our glasses to each other. I would definitely recommend!!
10. For The One who Brings the Party
A Leather Wine-Purse (w/ Hidden Dispenser & Spout)
A 3-Liter Insulated Handbag For Drinks, Beer & Cocktails
CUSTOMER REVIEW: Worked great at a beer festival for my wife that drinks wine. Discreet and functional. -Amazon Customer
11. For The Allergic Friend
A Pink Himalayan Salt Rock Lamp
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I purchased this salt lamp with low expectations of any kind of health benefits. The price point is low enough to be worth the risk and it is a good looking decoration. I can say that I have been blown away by the performance of this lamp. I turn it on when I sleep on a dim setting and have noticed that when I wake up, I have less "eye boogers" and can breathe better through my nose. I assume this is due to the dust, pollen, general particulate attracting characteristic of the salt lamp. I have used all sorts of diffusers and oils, nose filters, etc and this lamp has given me better results than all of them. Considering I live in the land of pollen (Florida), this lamp is invaluable. I like it so much I bought another after a week of using it!
12. For The Chick Who Makes Scents
An Essential Oil Aromatherapy Cool Mist
PERSONAL REVIEW: My room has never smelled or felt fresher. It's like a Mentos for your room. CUSTOMER REVIEW: I bought this because I had a really bad cold and was having a lot of trouble sleeping. So much trouble in fact that I broke down the day after ordering it and bought the similarly priced Sunbeam Filter Free Warm Mist Humidifier from WalMart to get me through. I regretted it. The Sunbean was bulky, hard to fill and leaked water during refilling plus it lasted only about 6 hours despite a big reservoir. Disappointed I waited eagerly for this InnoGear to arrive. When I checked the mail yesterday all that was waiting was a small box. I had no idea this humidifier was so tiny! I thought "there is NO WAY that this thing will produce continuous mist for 9 or more hours" especially after my two days with the Sunbeam. So I plugged it in and BOOM! Small and compact yes but mist you can actually see, cool to the touch and yes: it lasts for 9 hours on a ridiculously small amount of water. Well played InnoGear. -Ella Taylor
13. For The Chick w/ the Caffeine Kick
A Smart Mug Warmer
To keep that coffee pippin hot…
14. And The Other One…
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I've always preferred cold drinks to hot ones so imagine my joy when companies started selling pre-made cold-brew coffee in the grocery store. At about $7 per bottle though, it was costing me more to buy it that way rather than brewing my own hot coffee and adding ice. It wasn't until I was perusing YouTube and saw one of my favorite YT'ers pouring her own cold-brew out of a refrigerated container. I immediately toggled to Amazon in a search for one similar and I found this product. After comparing prices and reviews, I decided to give this one a try. 3 weeks and several brews later here are my takeaways: Pros: Easy to clean and use, coffee tastes great, not going back to buying pre-made! Overall though, it's a much cheaper alternative to pre made cold brews and you can control the strength and taste of your coffee by selecting the brand/grounds/roast you want and by adding more or less ground to the filter.
15. For The Cozy Cuddler
A Cozy Sherpa Teddy (Faux-Fur) Peacoat
CUSTOMER REVIEW: Such a comfy oversized sherpa like coat! Got so many compliments.
16. … & The Lazy Cozy Cuddler
The COMFY Hood-ie, (The Wearable Sherpa Blanket)
An actually comfy snuggie… Like what it was made to do. But this one works.
PERSONAL REVIEW: As a proud owner of the maroon version, I live in it.. especially in the winter. It’s amazingly comfortable. it’s also long and wide enough to curl my legs up inside too.
Get it Here.
17. For Your Other Freezing Friend
Shiatsu Foot + Back Kneading Massager (w/) Heat
PERSONAL REVIEW: I’m anemic. I own one of these too. I give it a 10/10.
18. For your Girl that’s Always (On the Go…?)
A Portable Mini-Fridge
It has a cigarette lighter charger and a wall outlet charger adapter.
- Keep it at home.
- Use it in your car.
- Use it on a boat.
- Use it for food.
- Use it for beauty products.
- Use is for medication.
PERSONAL REVIEW: I own this one too! Another one I couldn't live without. CUSTOMER REVIEW: Love! I just bought this last week, but I’m quite impressed. Easy out of the box set up and it got colder than I had anticipated. I bought it to keep beneath my desk (I’ma teacher.) and it’s very quiet. And it is so stinking CUTE! I chose the turquoise one—favorite color—and it’s just so adorable. HaHa The only potential problem I can foresee is the handle—it is a bit “flimsy” and I’ve made note to be careful with it. Overall—I’m a fan!
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I absolutely love 💕 my beauty fridge💕 I use it every day!! I put my beauty serums, my face masks, under eye treatments and my spray mists and there’s room for so much more!! I think the noise level is perfectly fine, it’s in my bathroom on my counter, I really don’t hear it at all. The color is super cute, and I want to buy more to give as gifts, because I absolutely have fallen in love 💕 with mine!!
19. For The STEM Friend
A DNA Double-Helix (Necklace + Earrings + Bracelet + Ring) Jewelry Set
Get it in Gold, Silver, or Black.
And Get the ring, bracelet, necklace, earrings, or a matching set.
CUSTOMER REVIEW: Amazing quality, chain is thick, good quality clasp, and pendant has great size and weight! It comes in a beautiful flat box with a tiny jewelry bag and cleaning cloth. Love it! Thank you for this great product.
20. For The Future Cat Lady
A Multi-Cat Calming Diffuser Kit
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I can’t express enough how much this has changed mine and my cats lives. Merging two households wasn’t easy on the cats. One male cat had a hard time moving into a new house with new pets. He had terrible behavior problems and would cause us and the other cats a lot of stress. His bullying led to the other two cats having health problems. He would get into moods where he would chase and attack the others and would not let up. We tried everything the vet suggested to reduce theses incidences, but getting feliway was the only thing that worked. He is a completely different cat now. He is calm and his outbursts rarely happen. He has become a couch cat and has turned into the sweetest boy. The other cats aren’t stressed anymore and neither are we. We have three diffusers in the three rooms we have had incidences in. It definitely has more of an affect on the male cats than the female. If you aren’t noticing a difference with one diffuser I would suggest getting a second. We couldn’t believe that this one product could fix everything, but it did. If he starts to act out again we check the diffusers, and sure enough, one of them will be out. I would suggest this to anyone with cats. The vet bills were adding up and we considered finding a new home for one cat. Heartbreaking to even think about but that’s how bad things got and the health of the cats was most important. If your cats are having any behavior problems or stress please try this!
21. For The Friend w/ the Old Soul
A Calligraphy Set
Learn Meghan Markle’s skill.
If it’s good enough for an American Princess…
Who knows maybe you’re handsome Hallmark Channel Hottie is waiting to woo while watching you construct some fancy writing on a random train (..or Metro, or whatever)
22. …And One for your Potter-Head Friend
Harry Potter’s Quill + Ink Wizard Writing Bundle: (w/ Parchment Paper & Owl Sealing Wax-Seal Stamp)
23. For Your Fancy Friend
3-layer Jewelry Box (w/ Glass Shelf)
CUSTOMER REVIEW: I wanted a sleek, sturdy jewelry box for the top of my dresser to hold everyday pieces, and this fits the bill! Before buying, I was worried that the stitching or leatherette would look cheap, but I could easily see spending a lot more on something of similar quality in a boutique. My only complaint is that the top doesn't stay open well on its own, and must be held open by hand. But, then again, the top is see-through, so it's not like that'll stop you from viewing your ~collection~, either. This would make an excellent gift, but I don't quite see how it'd work for traveling (Amazon had me rate that feature.) This is very much a stationary desk or wardrobe fixture, not something that's meant to be moved often.
24. For Your Artsy Or Your Organized Friend
24-Drawer Craft Cabinet
CUSTOMER REVIEW: If the thought of having different sized rubber bands, binder clips and paper clips all jumbled together distresses you, keep reading. I cannot stand when my office supplies are thrown all together among a 3 or 4 drawer storage bin-I've really tried to love them but I just can't. I've done the pinterest thing and spray painted them a cute color but alas, I just can't get over the lack of organization. How can I live peacefully when I know if I reach for a small rubberband, there will be a drawer overflowing with large, medium, small, extra small, the list goes on. I've tried the acrylic makeup organizers, but the drawers were too small- how will I fit all of my binder clips in there? Plastic jewelry organizers? Disappointed in the size. Craft storage bins? Too big. I have become the goldilocks of the painful task of organizing my office supplies. And then my world changed. I bought this beautiful drawer organizer and I was able to organize all of my office supplies in perfectly sized drawers-not too big and not too small-just right. I can look over on my bookcase and know that when I reach for a small paperclip I will not be attacked with large ones. My post it notes are no longer haphazardly thrown in with pencils and highlighters- yes, those too have their own home in this storage box from heaven. So if you are a disgruntled organizer that is addicted to all things office supplies but can't seem to find a good way to organize all of it-buy this and give yourself a good night's sleep. -sewingdame87
25. For Your Friend who Likes “Pretty Things”
Gemstone Beauty-Rock Organic (Shampoo+ Soap Set)

27. For The Crafty Friend
A Crochet Starter-Kit
CUSTOMER REVIEW: Bought this for my wife. To say she is pleased is an understatement, in fact I am so high in her good books that I can even walk on water!! In all seriousness she loves the kit and is busy making several Octopus for the premature baby units which have to be made with a pure cotton thread and very very tightly so their fingers don't get stuck in them. The crochet hooks are so much more comfortable for this. My view on this product may change if I get the Crocheted underpants she threatened me with!! -Mike P Hailston
28. For The Other Crafty Friend (who Needs a Bit More Guidance…)
Cactus + Succulents Crochet Starter-Kit
CUSTOMER REVIEW: This was a fun and well written crochet project for a beginner. It included everything that was necessary including a crochet hook. If you are brand new to crocheting I would definitely recommend it. Overall, just a lot of fun to do! -Christina Manning
29. For Your Fashionista-Friend
