Promising review: "I love how the water bottle is marked with how much you are drinking in a day. I loved the sippy straw, no mess, no leaking, very high quality, and something I’m gifting this Christmas because of how much I love!" —Rebecca

BuzzFeed senior shopping writer Emma Lord raves, "I have two of these in my own rotation, and I'm impressed not only by how well they stay in place and don't get over-sweaty and gross during workouts, but by how well they wash up and maintain their shape. The straps are super soft on your ears, too. I've gotten too used to straps chafing that I was surprised by what a difference this made. I also recently traveled cross country by plane wearing mine, and a lot of other reviewers praised it for being comfy on long flights! I gifted one of these to my dad for Christmas, too, and it's his go-to for walks and errand running. It's just an overall easier mask to breathe in (while still maintaining a tight fit and keeping the people around you safe!)".
Promising review: "I have a BUNCH of masks, but I didn't love any of them. Some were good, others got put away in a drawer for emergencies. Then I took a chance on these because my softball-playing granddaughter uses this type of mask. OMG! This is a life-changer. It was so great, I gave one to my grandson and then ordered another for me as a spare." —Debbie T.
Type Of Fit: Around-the-ear loops
Pocket For Filter: No

These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for 4+ hours with each full charge). The earbuds are also sweatproof and waterproof so you can use them during workouts or runs, and have a built-in mic so you can chat on the phone. Psst — these are also a great option for going outside in a mask, since it doesn't have wires that'll get tangled in the mask straps.
Promising review: "So far I love everything about these earphones. I have had multiple kinds of wireless headphones and am always getting the wires hung on everything. These are so comfortable, they stay in my ears well. The sound quality is fantastic. I haven’t tried them in the shower yet, but will do that soon. I will be ordering more to give for gifts. They are wonderful!! They pair easily to my phone and IPad. Noise cancellation is great. They are comfortable to wear also. I have small ears, so the small bud that comes with works very well for me. My 27-year-old son LOVES to sing in the shower so I am going to buy him a pair of these for Christmas. He will love them as much as I do." —Karen Haney
Get it from Amazon $18.99+ (available in five colors).
Promising review: "My husband and I travel a lot! I bought each of us one for our last cruise. They were a godsend! The headband is easy to use and holds a charge for days. We were able to use Bluetooth to our own devices. They are comfortable enough to sleep in, we slept with ours on every night for the seven-day cruise. We find ourselves using them a lot here at home as well. The material is comfortable and breathable. I don't think it would keep your ears very warm in the cold, but I also don't think the material is thick enough for you to sweat in either. Overall, we are both very pleased and plan to purchase some for Christmas and birthday gifts." —Jenn S.

BuzzFeed senior shopping writer Emma Lord says, "As you can see from the above GIF, I bought these for myself, and I love them to pieces. TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat. Sometimes I just keep them in my work area to light them up during the day to feel fancy. They toggle back and forth between a bunch of different colors, like red, blue, yellow, purple, and multicolor, so you can either make them match *or* have a red and blue one together and bring ~balance~ to the Force."
Promising review: "The chopsticks are very durable, and the glow is bright. They're a bit bigger than I expected — but very pleased nonetheless with the product because it serves the purpose and is entertaining for kids, right up to adult Star Wars nerds. It also made the perfect gift for my fellow Star Wars nerds. I've been too busy playing with them rather than using them to eat food — but hopefully, that will eventually happen before the batteries need changing." —Anthony

Promising review: "This works wonderfully. Bought this as a gift. I already bought one for myself. Great price." —Brenda J Romanski
Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in seven styles).
It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1–2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2–3 for a glass of red, and 7–9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and it should be raring to go!
Promising review: "Is this magic? I’ve always gotten headaches from wine that turn into migraines. Not anymore! I’m not sure how this works, but it seems to effectively neutralize the sulfates and tannins in the wine that cause headaches. It’s discrete, and the bottle seems like it will last me a while. I’m going to gift one to my Mom who has the same issue." —Becky duPuis Bartek
Get it from Amazon for $13.99.
Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. Makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? I have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." —Martha Romeus

Promising review: "I've tried many sleep masks, but this is the only one I like. The foam around the eye sockets is soft and covered with soft material that forms a seal around my eye sockets. This makes it very comfortable and shields out any light, even if I want to take a nap during the day! I have been able to regulate my sleep better because I put it on when I want to sleep, and I am not awakened by light until I want to be. I usually stay up until at least midnight and wake up the minute the sun comes out, but I've been able to sleep many hours more than usual. This is THE ONLY mask I give as a gift, and the recipients tell me they have gotten the same response — longer sleep in the morning. Excellent buy!" —FanceyFootework
Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in five colors).
Promising review: "I only wish that I would have bought this sooner. I’ve karaokied alone and with others every day since it came. One day, it was all that I did all day. I ate meals but not a chore or responsibility.... just hard-core karaoke. I found it best to pull up YouTube scrolling lyrics on the tv and then use the microphone to project my voice but you can have both come through the microphone easily. I can’t wait to use it in the car on a girl's trip. I just bought a second one for duets and have plans to send a couple as gifts. Great purchase!!" —Susie Q
Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in 14 colors).
Promising review: "After having major surgery last year, I noticed minor but annoying hip and lower back pain. As soon as the cushion was delivered, I tried it out and ahhh, the back adjusted (popped a little), hip felt no pressure and more aligned and dull lingering headache went away. Wow! Why didn't I seek out a product like this earlier? But this cushion needs 10 stars because the quality is there, no doubt. I WILL be buying more of these for other sitting areas and gifts for friends and family!" —Erica Chriss
Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in three colors).
Psst — this is USB rechargeable, and you can even use a power bank or your phone to charge it!
Promising review: "This hand warmer is amazing! My hands are constantly cold, and I've tried all sorts of products to help keep them warm but nothing has worked until now. I charge the hand warmer every night with a standard USB charger and the next day, I have hours of warmth. The three temperature settings are very helpful. I use the highest setting when I'm outdoors for long periods of time and the lower settings when I'm indoors (e.g. sitting at my desk or in a cold movie theater). I've already given hand warmers as gifts to several cold-handed friends and family members, and they're loving them as well. I hope Ocoopa comes out with a foot warmer next!" —RK
Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in 14 colors).
The book comes with 365 pages, each of which has lines for five days, so they'll write on the same page each year when the date comes around again. It's a really cool way to reflect on their ~journey~ — kind of like those "this time last year!" things your phone or Facebook does, except they're the ones in control of what gets written and saved.
Promising review: "This is a FANTASTIC journal centered on a FANTASTIC concept! I'm a hardcore journaler, keeping a detailed daily diary for many years now. And this journal fits right in. If I don't get to my primary journal for a day or two, this book reminds me of what I did on what day, etc. It's just a great little log. It's also great fun! I just finished my first volume of this book, and it was SO FUN to see what happened on each day from the previous years. Of course, it takes a few years for that aspect of fun to come into play, but if you're diligent and thorough, that payoff will eventually come to fruition. The journal has held up beautifully to the wear and tear of handling it for five years, overall. The gold lettering on the cover is long gone, but its imprint remains. So, cosmetically, it's dirty and worn and fading. But structurally, it's sound. And I looooove the worn look anyway; it means it's seen some days. I've started volume two now, and am so excited to keep going with these books, hopefully, all my life. At this point, I have three more blank ones in storage; I hope they make these for many more years to come so I can keep going with them, and keep gifting them." —Sarah Steamer
Get it from Amazon for $15.26.
FYI, you can 6,000% use these for brownies, blondies, and bread, too. This is also great for making several kinds of lasagna at once, if you and other fam members have different preferences!
Promising review: "I ordered this pan and made lasagna three ways, traditional, vegetarian, and vegan for a dinner party. The pan is very deep and each space is approximately the size of a lasagna noodle. The party was a big success and pleased everyone. The day after the party, I gifted each couple a pan. We are having a complete dinner based on this pan. 1) appetizers (3 dips in one pan). 2) side dishes or bread in 3) main dish Mexican, Italian, and Greek, and finally, 4) brownies three ways in the last pan. I have not run into a single person who is not surprised by its versatility. I'm ordering multiple pans for Christmas gifts." —LESLIE M WEISBRICH
Get it from Amazon for $22.99.
Promising review: "These gloves are so soft and fit nicely, true to size. I truly like the fact they are not only able to function for texting and using your phone, but I really like the non-slip grip on the palm. I liked these so much I purchased 2 more pairs for gifts!" —Deborah D. Hinman
Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in unisex sizes M–XL and 12 colors).
Promising review: "I loved this so much I bought one for my dad, too. He loves waking up gently to the sound of birds chirping (though in my opinion, they don't sound very much like real birds!)" —Amazon Customer

Firefly Feeling Bright is a Florida-based Etsy shop established in 2019 that specializes in artisanal jewelry.
Promising review: "I stumbled upon this mask chain, I think through a BuzzFeed list of items you didn’t realize you needed or something along those lines. My work is considered an essential service, so I have been working nonstop since the start of the pandemic and wearing a mask all day, every day. I love this concept so much because there are instances when taking off my mask to eat/drink, and I feel weird just setting it down on my desk. The mask chain keeps it handy and accessible at all times. I have gotten so many compliments on it and I love the bright, fun colors. I will be ordering more to give as gifts! Definitely recommend!" —Natalie Anderson
Get it from Firefly Feeling Bright on Etsy for $7+ (also available in sets of three and five).
These are also super handy because they stay upright on flat pans, so you don't even need to buy cupcake pan to make cupcake-shaped goodies!
Promising review: "I like these a lot. I make muffins almost weekly, as well as frozen yogurt cups, cupcakes, etc sometimes. These make it so I don’t have to always keep the disposables on hand, which I like. Also, for some reason both of my toddlers are just amazed by them. They will be helping in the kitchen and just love stacking, organizing, and playing with these. Sometimes I even get them out to keep the kids busy while I do other things haha. They’re easy enough to clean. Worth the purchase! I’ve also gifted some to my MiL who bakes a lot, and she likes them, too." —EMILY PEARL

It's got two sides — one that can wipe off all your makeup with water and a light scrubbing, and another that exfoliates your skin. Plus, all you have to do when you're done using it is wet it and hang it up to dry! No more wasting money on icky washcloths that hurt your skin!!! I can hear your pores singing from here.
Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for a friend after another friend gave me one a couple of years ago. I have used mine every night for several years, and it’s still amazing. I just use one area each night to take off my eye makeup and then use the reverse side to wipe off my face before applying lotion for the evening. I love that I’m not using chemicals on my face, and it’s super environmentally friendly because I just wash it weekly with my towels, and it’s like new again. Everyone should have one of these. Now, I give them as gifts." —katieheff
Get it from Amazon for $20+ (available in 14 colors).
Drop Stop is a small business based in California that sells accessories for your car (the Drop Stop) that prevents anything from falling in between your seats.
Promising review: "Decided to try these while I was still a bit skeptical that they'd work. I found they fit well in the space. I had to squish them in the space and then they expand back to fill the gap. We've dropped a couple of things that would have most likely gone into that space, and it was nice to see it do its job. Worth the money and decided I'm going to give this product as gifts this year. Figure most people won't already own it but would love to have it if they got a chance to try a set." —Amazon Customer
Get a two-pack from Amazon for $24.99.
Promising review: "This is a perfect companion for my new planner. It’s ideal for me to organize my planner with multi-color entries on my planner. The pens are crafted with a style. They are very sturdy and easy to hold on hand. The fine tips give stylish writing. I love to send them as gifts for my kids." —David
Get a set of 18 from Amazon for $6.99.
Promising review: "Best purchase ever! Great bag. Not bulky or heavy, super soft. Just the right size handle. Convenient inside pocket for easy access to your phone and ChapStick. Bought the black and hunter green. Buying the orange to give as a gift. You won’t be disappointed. Even came with a cute colorful mini scarf. Could have put it on the bag but instead a wear it as a headband." —marthafruit
Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 48 colors and two sizes).
Promising review: "I love this product! Every day I love to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and multiple cups of tea, but I’m a slow drinker and within minutes my tea goes cold. I have one right by my bed and in the office. I only drink cold tea when I want to now 😃! I ended up buying almost 10 more for gifts over the holidays, especially for all my friends and family who have to work at home." —Sharise
Get it from Amazon for $14.09.
.Promising review: "I’ve just received it, and I love it. It’s all girly with recipes and love the hardcover (a bit big for my liking, but I still love it). I bought two, one for me and one as a gift to my best friend. I read Pride and Prejudice many times (in French) and watched almost all the adapted movies and series but still wanted to read the original version in English, and I was very delighted to receive this colorful book." —SM
Get it from Amazon for $23.49 (also available on Kindle and paperback).
Promising review: "This has proven to be a great purchase. I have also purchased two others as gifts. It matches my bedroom and sits on my vanity. Looks great with the decor. More than that it is very convenient to clean my makeup brushes, nail files, etc. If it fits, you can use it in this phone soap. It was a great purchase, and I am seriously considering the larger version. I've had this almost two years with zero issues." —IslandSandy
Get it from Amazon for $63.96 (available in six colors).
Promising review: "I just got it yesterday and was excited to try it out. First, it looks so cool with its blue light. The foil cutter is awesome, took a second and cut the foil perfectly. Next, I simply centered the corkscrew in the middle of the cork, pressed the down button, and voila the cork came out, push the up button, and cork is removed from the bottle opener. Why didn't I get this before? A few months later, still works great, and I bought about four more as gifts. All recipients love it!!" —D. S.
Get it from Amazon for $20.99.
There's also a white truffle version as well as a hotter version of the classic black truffle hot sauce.
Promising review: "Once you go TRUFF, you’ll never go back. This is THE BEST HOT SAUCE if you’re a fan of truffle oil and hot sauce. It’s like combining your two most favorite things into the most perfect combination. Excellent on many things, but especially on pizza. I brought this to a pizza party, and the hosts tried stealing my bottle by the end of the night! I took it back, but I gifted them a new bottle the next day...you can’t deny food love!" —Steph in DC
Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four flavors, three sizes, and vegan and gluten-free options).
Promising review: "I got this for Christmas. Honestly I didn't think it would work. It sat around for 6–7 months before I tried it. Wow! My tiled shower had mold, mildew, iron, rust, hard water stains, dirt and every other nasty stain that can be had in a shower. With a little Comet and very little effort it took it all off. I have tried every cleaner, scrubbie that I could find to clean this shower. Nothing worked. Not even straight bleach. This scrubber worked. I am in shock that it worked. After a good workout I noticed that the some of the brushes were bent. The product is still worth the money even if I have to replace it. Overall this is a great product. I am going to be giving them as Christmas gifts this year." —FreddiesCat
Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in six brush stiffness colors).
BuzzFeed senior shopping writer Emma Lord writes, "I've owned one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years, and you better BELIEVE I gifted one to my parents apropos of nothing (truly no holiday, no birthday, they got the package and were like "??" and I was like, "Eggs.") I've especially gotten use out of it during the pandemic because it simplifies breakfast — I know no matter what weird assortment of groceries I'm working with, there are precooked eggs to add some protein to it (I like mine medium-boiled 🍳). If my dinner is boring or seems like it needs a little extra "oomph" to it, I'll throw in an egg from this too. Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume and sing a little song instead!".
Promising review: "So, this is the third rapid egg cooker I've purchased. I give them as gifts and would straight up break somebody's kneecaps if they tried to steal mine. My family of four's hard-boiled egg consumption is concerningly high since buying this, but until a cholesterol test on my 5-year-old puts an end to our fun, we are riding this dream as far as it takes us. Also, be warned if you buy these of these Amazon starts suggesting you buy every egg product ever created, but honestly it is worth it." —Anna from MN
Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in eight colors/styles).
Bonus: it also holds cans, so they can pop in a LaCroix or enjoy a shower PBR, too.
Promising review: "Loved how easy this was to put in my shower and use for anything from holding beverages to face wash. Gifted it to two friends and my boyfriend who at first mocked it, but now LOVES it. I’d consider traveling with it at this point." —MB Schatz
Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five colors and styles).
Promising review: "Just started using this, and it appears to work better than other stands I've used. I have used it in bed, on the sofa, and in the kitchen while cooking. The three angles are perfect and the height keeps cooking splatters from reaching surfaces. One must remember that when moving from one spot or location to another to readjust the legs as the stand has a tendency to fold up when moved. I love the feature allowing me to use my electronic device while in bed. Time will tell how well the elastic clasp will keep things secured in this position. Absolutely love this stand so far. Gifted my neighbor with one, and he seems as pleased as I am." —Sharon
Get it from Amazon for $39.59.
Promising review: "This is the best kitchen gadget I've purchased in a long time! I've tried it on several sized pots and pans and it's worked great each time. The first time i used it, I did tip the pan too fast and lost a couple of ravioli, so start draining your water slowly then when its almost out, tilt your pan more to get the remaining water out to avoid the issue of having food spill out with the water. It's so much easier than a traditional colander!! Even my skeptical husband loves it now. I've used it with pasta, rice, and even to drain grease out of meat — works great each time! We use it so much that we recently bought more as gifts for family and friends because it's become our go-to item. I use it nearly every day, and it's holding up great." —gagirl
Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three colors).
Promising review: "I thought these looked too good to be true, but I gave it a shot, and I'm seriously in love. They are so CUTE, so easy to use and clean (seriously, just turn inside out and rinse off, takes one second), and such an awesome price. I kept the entire box for myself and just ordered two more to use for gifts." —Amazon Customer

Vimhue is an Arizona-based, woman-owned small business that specializes in uniquely engineered running hats.
Promising review: "I LOVE these caps so much! During Hurricane Ida, we had two trees fall on our home. I wore them daily as I was cleaning debris, tarping my roof, and helping others around me do the same. I love that they are high quality, made by women, for women. They are my go-to gift for friends, everyone loves how they accommodate ponytails and buns." —brittanygraybill

Promising review: "EXCELLENT value, and they work perfectly! The kids are having so much fun with them and even added them to SLIME! Highly recommend. I will be ordering these as gifts, too. A little goes a long way, they arrive in a small container but make a huge amount!" —Jason

This LED toilet light has 16 colors that can work on a rotation or as a solid color.
Promising review: "I love this and so do my sons. I had to buy another one for a gift because they loved mine so much. It works perfectly. The sensor is very sensitive. It turns on when you walk past the bathroom. The light is bright enough that you don't have to turn on the light every time you go in the bathroom. I catch myself reaching for the light switch out of habit and smile because I don't have to flip the switch and waste electric." —Rose Lamb

Promising review: "This is the cutest way to hold keys ever! And it was mad easy to install: peel and stick. I don’t know how I ever survived just using a hook instead of this cute magnet cloud. Excellent housewarming gift, too. I now take it with wine as a gift for any friends/family moving." —Clemmie C.

Promising review: "Obsessed. I moved to a new apartment with a tiny kitchen that had no room for a 'traditional' coffeemaker. My friend suggested a pour-over coffeemaker, and it's changed my life! I'd never used a pour-over coffeemaker, but after reading the instructions and a few articles online, I feel like a pro! It's so easy to use, and the coffee tastes great every single time! It keeps the coffee warm and makes enough for two. I also bought one as a gift for my friend, and she loves it as much as I do, if not more!" —Francesca
Get it from Amazon for $18.21.
Promising review: "It's so good I had to order again to gift to my mom! Really hits the spot. After a long day in the salon, my neck and back ache. This is my joy to relax after work and turn on the massager. First, I'll place it on my neck, and once that feels good enough, I move it down my back. So relaxing and works well." —BECKY SIDER

Promising review: "I wear this all the time. It is perfect because it can hold thick wristbands and now my wrist has proper circulation! Plus, I can wear it with nice dresses, and it looks like an accessory, not a wristband holder. Love it so much I bought one for myself and gave them as gifts to my bridesmaids." —M. Manahan

BuzzFeed's senior shopping writer Emma Lord has this to say about the spiralizer, "I recently purchased this because it was my cheapest option for making zoodles, and also because my apartment is the size of a shoebox and there was no room for anything bigger. I LOVE how easy it is to swap out the caps to do other things, too — I've started grating my own cheeses and feel very fancy. But mostly I just love that it's very safe to use (it comes with a finger guard!), super easy to figure out, very compact, and even has measurements on the inside of the cup if you're ever portioning things out for a recipe".
Promising review: "This is the second spiralizer that I have purchased and by far the best I have used. It's super easy to use and clean. My other spiralizer that I had was difficult to clean properly, and I want to use they as often as possible so the use and cleaning of the product are very important! Fullstar Vegetable Spiralizer is a great product, and I will be purchasing more to give as gifts for the holiday season. I would definitely recommend. A+++ item." —Yvonne I

I will be getting a few more as gifts for a few friends...good product, received it quickly and for the price, you cannot go wrong." —Timothy J Stegner

Promising review: "I bought a pink one over a year ago and lost it to a friend. I bought another pink one to replace it, as I loved it SO much. I’ve bought many others for gifts and got myself more colors to add to my collection. This product has been consistent in quality (unlike other Amazon purchases). It’s wide enough for extra warmth but not too thick that it’s bulky. The width and length is perfect and cozy. I will continue to buy more, since at this point I can’t live without them! And for the cost, why not have one in every color. Colors have been true to what the pictures show. I wish they made one in black & grey. I love, love, LOVE these scarves! NEVER STOP MAKING THESE, PLEASE!" —Deborah
