A Selenite skyscraper for any crystal or interior design enthusiast. It’s going to look like you spent close to $50 on it!!! And I say that because I recently saw one in a boutique priced that.

Amazon

Promising review: “I got this for my wife for Christmas, and she is absolutely ecstatic! It was sort of the centerpiece of a whole gift set, and it definitely was the star of the show. She already has all of her serums and her new jade roller in the cooler, and it’s working great so far! We are really stoked on the car adapter as well, cause now we have a cooler for road trips which is pretty awesome! Thank you for a great gift!” —Nick Capertina

jar candle that's white ceramic with blue striations


Prosperity Candle

I’ve burned a few of these in my day. They smell amazing, the containers truly are worth saving (some candle containers simply aren’t!), and they burn cleanly. Check out more about their mission here.

Get it from Prosperity Candle for $30 (available in 12 scents or unscented).

7.

A *magnum* Kacey Musgraves x Boy Smells candle for your friend who has excellent taste in music but always opts for the giant bottle of booze.

Boy Smells

FYI, a “magnum” candle = a three-wick one. Also, you can use Kacey for scale in this pic! The regular size of this candle has sold out a few times thanks to its intoxicating smell of incense, black pepper, elemi, guaiac, raspberry, tonka, amber, and smoked papyrus. My colleague Heather Braga has one on her desk and, dear reader, I’ve sniffed it LOTS of times.

Get it from Boy Smells for $86 or also with a wick trimmer for $98.

8.

And a candle wick trimmer to keep that luxury candle in tip-top shape to make it last.

Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

9.

A rechargeable lighter for the candle fiend who also can’t get enough gadgets (two things can be the truth at once!). Lighter fluid? I don’t know her.


Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

I just bought one of these because it turns out that WFH all the time and being a person who HAS to have a candle burning when I’m at home and awake means that I was literally burning through all my lil’ matchbooks. I’ve been loving this for the ~month I’ve been using it. Plus, it’s easy to track down in my, OK, a little cluttered apartment when I wanna light a candle.

Promising review: “This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that’s a super minor annoyance. It’s a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don’t know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it’s awesome!” —Jee W

Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

11.

A eucalyptus bedding set with a sheet set and duvet cover in a super soft and breathable fabric that’ll also make up their bed neatly (unlike cheaper, softer sheets). I should know, I own the sheet set in gray!

mad up bed with white sheets, pink duvet cover


Sijo

Both the sheets and duvet cover are made of 100% eucalyptus lyocell / Tencel. The eucalyptus is naturally sourced and not treated with harmful dyes or chemicals. Also, they’re built to last! I look forward to leaving these in my will to my various grandkids. These sheets are the most breathable sheets I’ve had in my life. I’m an incredibly hot sleeper, which is further aggravated by living in a NYC apartment building where the cast-iron radiators will really kick in during the middle of the night. When it comes to their level of smooth, it feels just as great running my hand over my flat sheet as slipping underneath it at night. I’ve had lots of soft sheets in my day, including the kind that feel like a T-shirt material that truly were very nice on my college dorm mattress. But nothing’s compared to these. So really, these might’ve ruined other sheets for me.

Get them from Sijo for $208+ (available in eight colors, six sizes).

12.

An actually affordable faux-fur throw blanket — it’ll help cozy up any sitting spot and provide quite the setting for their Insta grid pics.

Get it from Bespoke Post for $398.

colorfully wrapped individual toilet paper rolls that spell out "HEY YOU!" on a toilet tank


Who Gives a Crap

So why bamboo toilet paper? Bamboo is a fast-growing grass (much faster than, say, a tree). But it’s still OK for septic tanks! Half of the company’s profits go to organizations that help build toilets for people in need. You can read more about that here.

A ~ghost-like~ Squatty Potty (while we’re in the wash room) because, uh, it can help things go a bit smoother without messing with their aesthetic. They already have the ghost chair, might as well give ’em the ghost Squatty Potty too!

And, I swear the last toilet thing, a festive Poo-Pourri set that comes in a gift box so you don’t even have to worry about wrapping it! If they swear by this stuff this’ll be a step up from the plain bottle they keep in the medicine cabinet.
