A daisy egg yolk separator so you can no longer wing it post-crack — because raise your hand if you’ve ever bitten into a homemade macaron to realize the additional crunch was…an egg shell that made its way into the batter. Just get this.
An eyeshadow palette inspired by the one, the only — Baby Yoda. While this has the extreme kitsch factor, one should note that the shades are *actually* good! Think matte to metallic olive greens and neutral tones, all super blendable and pigmented. The Force is truly strong.
A gift assortment of Popbar hot chocolate sticks to upgrade your favorite winter beverage and holiday tradition into something slightly more luxe than Swiss Miss (no shade to Swiss Miss). 10/10 would swirl this around in my coffee, too.
High-waisted leggings here to give the boring black pair you’ve been wearing since *checks calendar* last March the boot. These are uber breathable, quick-drying, have a nonpinching smooth waistband, and the subtle shine means you now look chic.
A portable cool mist humidifier you can stash in your car for a blast of ~aromatherapy~ whilst driving to the grocery store. If that seems excessive (which it doesn’t), know that this can literally be placed anywhere — a bathroom, a bedroom, a closet, a WFH desk, etcetera.
Scout by Warby Parker — a contact lens that uses 80% less packaging than rival brands and comes as a ~flat pack~, making these dailies a great space-saving (and eco-friendly) option. The pack width is comparable to that of a New York pizza slice, which, yum.
A watering funnel to make you feel old because plant funnels at 26 > beer funnels at 26. The amount of water that has pooled on my floor rather than into the roots of my ZZ… ridiculous, quite frankly! This is effective, takes up no extra space, and doesn’t look like an eyesore.
NatureLab Tokyo Perfect Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner carefully tames frizz and protects tresses from further damage with its impressive ingredient list: Think botanical stem cells, yuzu ceramide, and exotic plant oils. It’s also sulfate-free to boot.
A star projector to transform everything — your car! your bedroom! your bathroom! — into what looks like a galaxy far, far away.
A microwavable plush wrap filled with dried French lavender for a soothing teddy that can provide stress and cramp relief. It’s also available in a ton of animal designs — think lobsters, dinosaurs, polar bears, and (of course) sloths.
A personalized Starbucks cup (inspired by The Vampire Diaries) to showcase the only vampire-werewolf universe love connection that matters: Team Damon. We don’t talk about Team Stefan in this house. And we most certainly don’t bring up names like Edward and Jacob.
A three-tiered tabletop fountain for a more zen at-home workspace. A warm glow makes for a cozy environment, plus this mimics the ~tranquility~ that is the sound of flowing water — the stress that is an email ping will now be replaced by the sounds of nature instead. Huzzah.
A limited edition Balm Dotcom Roulette — think three iconic salves (with scents ranging from fig and birthday cake to mint and coconut) beautifully packaged in a deck-of-cards-inspired gold box which, tbqh, makes for the perfect gift. To yourself. This is the perfect gift to give yourself.
Waterproof, shearling-lined boots because winter has arrived and my feet truly shiver at the thought of wet socks. Designed with sealed seams and an upper gusset, these expertly keep the elements away from your poor piggies.
A handmade Guess Who? game with a unique twist: the ~characters~ are iconic women who have changed 👏 the 👏world 👏. This wooden board comes with watercolor portraits and 28 cards that detail the lives of heroes such as Harriet Tubman, Alice Ball, and Nellie Bly.
A copy of Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics, in which *THE* queen shares personal stories, delves into the backstories of her most iconic jams, and more. “I Will Always Love You” —me to this book and to the father, son, and the holy spirit (in this context = Dolly Parton).
Etude House Air Masks for fun, effective skincare that won’t cost you a small fortune; you’ll get a 13-pack containing natural ingredients within different formulas (pearl to brighten, manuka honey to moisturize, tea tree to soothe, etc). Plus! These babies won’t leave your skin feeling sticky, a common problem when it comes to sheet masks.
A concrete vase that can take those $10 bodega roses and make them look like expensive florals you’d see in a Kardashian living room. Additional perk: These are made from a heftier concrete which means they’re significantly less fragile than the glass vase your great Aunt gifted you that one Christmas.
A cozy reversible plush blanket for your true best friend, your doggo — because boy oh BOY does that dog deserve the best. This keeps any pupper feeling soothed but *not* overheated.
A unique cast-iron wall hook for hanging everything from coats and purses to their favorite pieces of jewelry. One reviewer even installed this in a small bathroom to make the most of wall space, using this to hang up plush towels!
A Supernatural *and* Scooby Doocrossover sticker you can adhere to your laptop for a dose of spooky in December. Warning: The urge to sing “Carry On Wayward Son” whenever you look down from the screen will be, uh, strong.
A pensieve memory set in an ornate keepsake box you’ll treasure forever and ever (no sorcerer’s stone* required). Inside you’ll find a deluxe 176-page journal with HP quotes scattered throughout, a Dumbledore wand pen, and two memory vials.
An electric wine opener with a cordless, rechargeable design that uncorks bottles in a jiffy: Just the press the button and ’tis done in only seven seconds. That $7 bottle of vino awaits. One single charge = enough power to open 80 bottles.
A wall calendar featuring the unique, truly splendacious vocabulary used by one Moira Rose. Not to be dramatic but hoisting this above your work desk all but guarantees that 2021 will be the ~Schitt’s… Creek~.
A pair of blue-light glasses so you can accessorize *and* block the pesky blue light seeping in from your monitor (blue light = the potential culprit behind mid-afternoon headaches made worse by nonstop Excel sheets and “per my last email” responses).
RevitaLash Hi Definition Tinted Brow Gel grooms brows into place while subtly filling them in; no expert drawing skills required (unlike your regular pencil applicator). This formula *also* uses a blend of peptides and oat beta-glucan to encourage regrowth. TL;DR: this is *the* holy grail for anyone with sparse hairs.
An automatic pan stirrer about to revolutionize your cooking routine. This clever gadget (designed with a timer!) churns away at sauces and other whisk-requiring ingredients, aka your arm will be saved from the pain that is continuous and tedious stirring.
’70s-inspired high-top sneakers so you can say ~they’re vintage~ without having to have pawed through other peoples stinky shoes at the thrift store. It’s so easy to romanticize the idea of rummaging through worn sneakers when characters on TV do it. Not nearly as fun IRL. Trust me. I’ve frequented many a Brooklyn shop.
A W&P Porter ceramic mug as gorgeous as it is useful (I mean this screams Pinterest board). This is reusable, has a protective silicone sleeve, and comes with a secure lid press which makes this the perfect companion for daily morning strolls.
A ~Fasta Pasta~ cooker for the person who *insists* on eating Italian every night. This makes perfect al dente pasta right in the microwave every single time, plus the lid doubles as a strainer! So long to the 10 pots and pans that end up in my sink in the pursuit of penne.
A PocketRocket stove kit that contains all the cooking equipment for your next camping trip: a PocketRocket stove, an anodized aluminum pot and straining lid, two DeepDish bowls, two folding sporks, and two double-wall insulated mugs — they all nestle neatly into one another and weigh less than ! two ! pounds ! total!
A fuzzy rug pile pillow inspired by your ~breast friends~ for a unique piece of home decor that your roommate will absolutely attempt to steal. You’ve been warned.

A custom Spotify cover for a gift that ensures several tears be SHED. With concerts on hold this year, this personalized plaque can be gifted in lieu of a ticket to see their favorite band — just add their favorite tune.
A personalized photo book because Instagram is fleeting and computers crash — back up all of your favorite memories in one simple, beautiful place.
A 3D face coffee mug cleverly designed with a cookie slot so you can enjoy your nightly almond milk and chocolate chip treat sans plate or crumbs sprinkled all over your bedsheets.
