A sweatshirt embroidered with their favorite Taylor Swift lyric they can cozy up in while listening to an endless loop of Folklore and Evermore (crying in the bathtub at the same time is not required but also not frowned upon).


Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, thethreethirteen / Via instagram.com

A handful of us have ordered pieces from Three Thirteen and have nothing but positive things to say about this woman-owned small business. My fellow BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord (pictured above) didn’t have to do much convincing to get me to add one of these beauties into my cart shortly after hers arrived. The best part about this shop is that you can have the embroidery done on an array of items — sweatshirts, tees, hoodies, or a long sleeve. The quality is fantastic and I’ll be living in mine long after the next rumored TS album arrives.

Get the crewneck from from Three Thirteen for $40 (available in unisex sizes S–3XL, 10 colors, 7 Evermore styles and 5 Folklore styles).

A subscription to Atlas Coffee Club to bring aromatic, fresh beans from all over the world right to their front door.


Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, atlascoffeeclub / Via instagram.com

My fellow BuzzFeed editor Kayla Suazo tried out Atlas Coffee Club and only had good things to say:

“My first observation after opening the box was the smell. It smells FAN-FREAKIN’-TASTIC. It also comes with sweet postcards from the cities where the batches are from, so the entire experience feels so lovely and personal. As for the coffee itself, it’s heavenly. I am used to store-bought coffee — which yes, is fine — but both of these tasted incredibly fresh and different from each other. The Peruvian coffee has this dark, almost chocolate taste to it, so I imagine it would be delicious with a morning sweet treat (maybe I should start eating pie every day?). The Colombian batch, on the other hand, was a little lighter roast-wise but still had delicious notes of rich sweetness. TL;DR: both of them were incredible both in taste and quality.”

Get a subscription to Atlas Coffee Club for $9+ (available in a half bag, single bag, or double bag and shipments every two or four weeks).

Promising review: “This thing can get HOT and even hotter with a lid! With a metal bottom you can surprisingly boil an egg if you wanted to. I bought this to replace my old Mr. Coffee and I wish I’d done so sooner! Even though it’s double the price of a Mr. Coffee, I don’t regret the purchase and I doubt that the plastic will melt like my old one did. The buttons are so easy to press, just a simple tap, not like forcing the switch to turn on/off.” —Jenny

The pink container with a pump top to fluff the cleanser and foamed up cleanser all around it


Amazon

Promising review: “This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It’s also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you’d like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it’s a steal. Definitely give it a try if you’re not sure. It’s a really cool device.” —Knock Knock Me

And they aren’t necessarily easy, although if you don’t know the answer, you can generally figure it out. I have enjoyed a number of the Brain Games series, and this is one of the best.” —Ginger Russell

A candle from Evil Queen that’ll literally become the *light of their life* thanks to the sassy labels and delicious scents.


Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, evilqueen / Via instagram.com

When I tell you I am wholeheartedly committed to this candle brand I mean it. I was first introduced to them when I discovered their “OMG You’re Engaged” candle in a boutique near by NYC apartment a few years ago. I’ve been gifting them to everyone I know (and myself) since. This small business is female-owned by an absolute badass who also writes poetry. My all-time favorites are the seasonal options — she recently did a “soft launch” of her Valentine’s Day collection with more coming down the pipeline, so keep an eye out because they’ll also make for excellent gifts.

A gadget for their Nintendo Switch they can use with their Bluetooth headphones — a gift for both of you if you’re really tired of hearing the tunes from Animal Crossing over and over again.

I tested out this lil’ gadget and it’s been amazing! All you have to do is plug it into the headphone jack, pair it with your wireless headphones, and enjoy the seamless sound. It can also be used with essentially *any* headphone jack, not the Nintendo Switch. It has the ability to connect to two pairs of headphones at once, so you and your BFF can also battle it out on Mario Kart without anyone else being subjected to the sounds of bananas being tossed with reckless abandonment.

Promising review: “Connects to my AirPods and other Bluetooth headphones easily, and adds the only feature that the Nintendo Switch is really missing for being the perfect portable console.” —Harliquin A. Ripy

Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

I recently tried out these as-seen-on-Shark Tank bagel bites (WFH snacks, a must) and they are absolutely delicious. Each flavor is unique and stuffed with a different kind of cream cheese (yum!). My personal favorite so far is the everything bagel stuffed with veggie cream cheese, but you might as well go all-out and treat yourself to as many flavors as you can. They really do taste like fresh NY bagels!

Or a Jeni’s ice cream pick-your-own mix for your frozen treat–obsessed BFF who would enjoy nothing more than diving into a pint while watching all three of the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movies.

I recently had the pleasure of trying Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream for the first time and was blown away by how freakin’ delicious it was. I personally like the dairy-free roasted peanut butter and strawberry jam pint and their gooey butter cake pint (are you salivating yet?) but I don’t doubt that every single concoction they’ve come up with will bring a smile to their face. The ship nationwide so even if you’re spending this special birthday apart you can make sure your buddy has a sweet treat to celebrate with.

Mix and match four pints in “Jeni’s Delivery Box” from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream for $48+ (available in 20 flavors)

Promising review: “This is my new favorite T-shirt. First time wearing it out, I received so many compliments. When ordering, I really didn’t know what to expect from the sizing, but after reading the reviews I decided to choose an extra large due to everyone saying it was kind of crop-toppy, which is very true.” —Sarah DaVitte

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S—XXL and in 16 colors).

The set comes with a tube of Balm Dotcom, a high-shine lip gloss, and a Generation G lipstick.

Promising review: “So great that this is a set, you get three totally different lip products at a discounted price and they’re all worth it. I purchased the limited edition Wild Fig balm dotcom, clear gloss, and generation G in shade Cake. The balm is super moisturizing and smells great!! The gloss gives your lips the perfect shine and it’s not too sticky. The generation G lipstick is amazing, in my opinion, because it’s not too pigmented so it gives your lips just the right amount of color!” —Lori

Get the set from Glossier for $35 (Balm Dotcom available in nine shades, lip gloss available in four shades, and Generation G lipstick available in six shades).

It comes with a base coat, an activator, a top coat, five color powders, a nail file, a brush, and instructions.

Promising review: “I was very surprised at how easy it was to do. I love that my nails are dry right away and that it is as hard as acrylic but not damaging to your nails. Looks just about as good as when I get them done at the salon but this saves a ton of money and is quicker. Definitely recommend.” —Lindsay Emge
