Splurge worthy gifts
1. Moonlight pajamas
Pajamas are always a great gift because people wear them every day and don't usually buy them for themselves. Nordstrom sells pajamas that people—and many of us at Reviewed—swear by. They are the Moonlight Pajamas, and they have a 4.5-star rating from more than 1,600 reviewers. A few Reviewed editors own these, and we can confirm that they are comfortable and of great quality for the price.
2. Printed pictures or a photo book from Shutterfly or Artifact Uprising
Nothing says "thoughtful gift" more than a book of meaningful photographs. Shutterfly is our favorite online photo printing service at Reviewed. We love its high-quality prints and the wide variety of photo-themed gift options that are available, including photo books. For high-end wedding and baby albums, modern custom calendars and frames, Artifact Uprising is also incredible.
3. Winc wine subscription
Winc is one of our favorite wine subscriptions and allows your giftee to become an unofficial sommelier from their living room. All they have to do is fill out a simple questionnaire and Winc will deliver a four-bottle box monthly according to their tastes—there are even vegan options available! You can easily gift them a gift card to help them get started. There's also no commitment required so they can pause or cancel their membership at any time.
4. LifeAround2Angels bath bombs
If she's always complaining about how hectic her week has been, she'll love our favorite set of bath bombs to have a long soak with. The top-rated LifeAround2Angels Bath Bombs Set comes with 12 fizzy, colorful and moisturizing bombs and has more than 40,000 overwhelmingly positive reviews on Amazon, with many claiming they're just good as the more expensive Lush bath bombs. We even loved their pleasant scents and how they didn't stain our bathtubs as most other bath bombs do.
5. Mini Perfume Discovery Set
If you ever get stumped on what to give your wife, sister, girlfriend, mom or friend, try the Mini Perfume Discovery Set from Sephora. This stylish set from Sephora's Clean and Planet Positive line has a 4-star rating comes with a variety of fragrances so she can try out to find which one she likes best.
6. Home Chef gift card
For those who have busy schedules and order more takeout than they probably should, a meal kit delivery service would be an excellent gift idea. Our favorite meal kit delivery service is Home Chef, which offers “high-quality ingredients, well-written recipes, and fantastic flavors.” If you’re shopping for someone who enjoys home-cooked meals but lacks time in their week to prep and cook, give them the gift of easy weeknight dinners with a Home Chef gift card.
7. Capri Blue Volcano Jar Candle
If you're shopping for someone who loves home décor, you can never go wrong with a trendy candle as a gift. We love the Capri Blue Volcano Jar Candle at Reviewed. Not only does the scent smell amazing, but the chic jars double as pretty home décor. Anthropologie sells tons of styles for Capri Blue candles to fit any aesthetic. They'll look perfect atop any nightstand, bookshelf or mantel.
8. Custom photo art from Minted
For the person who cherishes memories, consider creating an adorable piece of custom photo art that they can hang up on the wall for all to see. Whether it's pictures of a newborn, snapshots of grandkids or photos from college for a recent graduate, this Heart Snapshot collage art is a sweet and sentimental gift they will truly appreciate.
9. Mint & Lily One Heart Initial necklace
Jewelry doesn't have to be too flashy or expensive to make a statement. Just take a look at the One Heart Initial Necklace from Mint & Lily. Personalize this dainty necklace with two initials and choose from 18K gold plated, 18K rose gold plated or silver. It's super sweet and she will love it.
10. A plant from The Sill
The Sill is an online shop for both live plants and faux plants. If you're shopping for someone who loves greenery, a plant from The Sill would make a great gift, whether they have a green thumb or not. Our editor reviewed the service and loved it for its wide range of plant types and sizes, as well as the economical prices.
11. A lighted makeup mirror
If you’re shopping for someone who's into makeup consider getting them an accessory that enhances the experience of putting makeup on: a lighted makeup mirror! The Deweisn Tri-Fold Lighted Vanity Makeup Mirror is the best value makeup mirror we tested, as it provides perfect views and lighting for optimal makeup application.
12. Corkcicle Insulated Stemless Glass
Corkcicle Insulated Stemless Wine Glass is a perfect gift for wine drinkers. These cute little thermos will keep their drink cold during outdoor gatherings on the beach, solo in their backyard or on the go. It comes in a variety of colors, including one called “Unicorn Magic.”
13. Airomé Serenity Medium Diffuser
If they're a mom with multiple kids, always at work or just have a ton of responsibilities, chances are they're looking to de-stress after a long day. That's why an essential oil diffuser will make a great gift for her. The Airomé Serenity Medium Diffuser is our favorite essential oil diffuser and can run relaxing scents like lavender and eucalyptus for up to six hours. It's also fairly economical, so you can bundle it up with a few of their favorite scents.
14. FinalStraw reusable straw
Give the person you’re shopping for the gift of a reusable straw—and give the environment the gift of one less person using plastic straws. Look at you, doing good things for humanity! Our favorite reusable straw at Reviewed is the FinalStraw. It's easy to use, carry and clean, and would make a perfect gift for the person who is always hunting in their kitchen for straws.
15. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
The Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is consistently popular, almost always selling out. With more than 300,000 rave reviews on Amazon (yes, 300,000), it has achieved cult status in the world of beauty products—and it's approved by our beauty editor. She tested the hairdryer and found that it absolutely does live up to the hype, especially if you want salon-quality hair from home—in half the time.
16. UGG Clifton Backrest Pillow
The Ugg Clifton Backrest Pillow is perfect for the woman who likes to cozy up in bed with a good book (or her phone), as it offers plenty of cushioned support to leave her feeling comfortable for hours.
17. lululemon Align leggings
Leggings are a staple in every women's wardrobe and one can never have enough of them. We love lululemon's Align leggings at Reviewed. They are the most comfortable leggings many of us have ever owned. When buying these as a gift, pay attention to sizing, as you want to get the right pair. Make it a complete outfit by adding a coordinating Align Tank Top to your cart.
18. Fjällräven Backpack
The FJÄLLRÄVEN Kånken Water Resistant Backpack is not only trendy and useful (with hundreds of 5-star reviews on Nordstrom), but they are also functional and of high quality. The brand makes our favorite casual-use backpack out of all the ones we tested, so we can safely say this is a great gift. No matter their age, a backpack is always nice to have, for school, work, traveling and commuting.
19. Marcato Atlas 150 pasta maker
If you’re shopping for someone who enjoys cooking and loves Italian food, a pasta maker would make for a fun gift. It’s not just a gadget, it’s also an experience! How fun would it be to learn to make your own pasta in the comfort of your own kitchen?! Our favorite pasta maker at Reviewed is the Marcato Atlas 150 which was both easy to use and aced all our tests.
20. Roku Ultra
The Roku Ultra Streaming Device is our favorite streaming device for its easy-to-navigate interface and sleek remote which comes with a headphone jack in case your giftee has a roommate or significant other and loves to watch TV into the early hours of the morning. If you know someone who is addicted to binging television shows, give them the gift of an enhanced Netflix viewing experience.
21. La Mer Moisturizing Crème
La Mer is an expensive moisturizer with a cult following—and also a perfect gift if you want to ball out on someone. La Mer Créme de la Mer moisturizing cream has nearly 37,000 hearts at Sephora and more than 6,300 reviews at Nordstrom with a 5-star rating. Nordstrom customers loved how refreshing and lightweight it was and how radiant it made their skin feel.
22. Ugg Slippers
You can't go wrong with the gift of slippers—especially a cozy pair like these. Not only are Ugg slippers and boots trendy again, but the Ugg Scuffette II Slippers are the best slippers we tested. We loved them for their fluffy wool lining and all day comfort.
23. Yeti Rambler Bottle
Yeti products have a cult following, and this popular water bottle would be a welcome gift for anyone who is good or bad at staying hydrated (I am bad; I guess I need a Yeti Rambler). When we tested water bottles, the Yeti Rambler 26 Oz. Bottle was one of our top pick for the outdoors since it's durable, leak-proof and easy to grip on the move.
24. lululemon yoga mat
Many people are still opting to exercise at home rather than at the gym or in fitness studios. If you’d like to give the gift of a home gym upgrade, consider a yoga mat. Perfect for virtual fitness classes, ab work, stretching and of course yoga, a yoga mat is a must. Even if they already own one, the lululemon 5mm mat would be a welcomed enhancement. The mat features a natural rubber base with just a little extra cushion for your body.
25. Barefoot Dreams Cardigan
The Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Cardigan has more than 3,700 Nordstrom reviews and a 4.7-star rating. I own this myself and can confirm it is actually a comfortable blanket disguised as clothing. When it comes to cardigans and sweaters, the limit does not exist for the amount one can own. They make great gifts—especially when they’re this cozy (and chic).
26. Free People Onesie
Whether they're spending the day inside or just need something to slip on before running to the grocery store, they'll love this Free People Just Because onesie. Available in 10 different colors including Aphrodite and Blue Flame, this wardrobe favorite has a 4.7-star rating from hundreds of Free People shoppers. Customers love the comfy, slouchy fit and some even dressed it up with some wedges or boots to wear out on the town! If your giftee is looking for some stylish loungewear, this is the gift she needs.
27. Fitbit Charge 5
Hailed as our top pick for Fitbit devices, the Fitbit Charge 5 is a serious game-changer. We loved its comprehensive fitness tracking, sleep tracking as well as built-in GPS. It's also super comfortable to wear so she can wear it on her wrist all day long. Plus, she'll receive her calls and texts straight on her watch, making it easy to keep track of her social life even when she's on a run.
28. JBL Flip 6 portable Bluetooth speaker
If you're shopping for someone who loves listening to music or podcasts, consider gifting the JBL Flip 6 Portable Bluetooth Speaker. It's the best value portable Bluetooth speaker we've tested, since it's both durable and waterproof, meaning it can be used anywhere, rain or shine. A portable speaker is always great to have to bring on hikes or use at home, and they're especially great for outdoor gatherings.
29. Madewell jeans
I thought I hated jeans until I discovered Madewell jeans. They’re comfortable, they’re slimming, they never rip and they’re a great price. Madewell also has sizes for all—petite, tall and curvy. If you're not sure what kind to get, we recommend the Madewell the Perfect Vintage Jean in Coffey Wash or a nice pair of some curvy jeans. Read more about why we're obsessed with Madewell jeans.
30. Fujifilm Instax 9 Mini
Polaroid photos never go out of style, especially if she loves to decorate her scrapbook, diary or even bedroom wall with her favorite memories. Consider getting her the popular Fujifilm Instax 11 Mini Instant Camera Bundle which Amazon shoppers say is easy to use and produces high-quality prints. You'll even be able to pick between multiple colors and gift her one that matches her style.
31. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
The book lover in your life may already have a Kindle, but who doesn’t enjoy the latest and greatest technology the world has to offer? The Kindle Paperwhite is the best we've tested as it features an amazing display, is glare-free and waterproof.
32. Instant Pot
For the past couple of years, Instant Pots have been all the rage for both advanced home chefs and beginners. What is an Instant Pot, you ask? It’s a multi-cooker, meaning it does all the things. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker and the list goes on. If they don't yet have an Instant Pot (or they have an older model), consider giving them the best multi-cooker we've ever tested, the Instant Pot Ultra 6 Qt 10-in-1 Pressure Cooker which we loved for its versatility.
33. Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Sandal
Birkenstocks slowly made a comeback over the last couple of years, and now they are once again a summer footwear staple. I own three pairs of Birkenstocks (see my review of them), and they are so comfortable that I no longer wear other shoes during summer. I recommend the Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Sandal, as well as the less expensive Essentials Arizona waterproof slides. Both are fantastic.
34. The Always Pan
You heard it from our staff at Reviewed first: The Always Pan is the perfect gift. The influencer-approved kitchen item is not only stylish, but it does the job of eight pieces of cookware. It's a fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula and spoon rest. Perfect for those who live in small spaces, the Always Pan is an ideal gift for anyone who loves to cook.
35. A cozy throw blanket
Doubling as home decor and personal comfort, throw blankets are a great gift for everyone. For a splurge, Barefoot Dreams sells a Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket that Chrissy Teigen once recommended as the gift to buy in a tweet (she owns one and claims to use it '365'). Another great option is Anthropologie’s Sophie Faux Fur Throw Blanket. For a less expensive blanket, The Bliss Plush Throw is a wonderful option with a 4.8-star rating with more than 2,100 reviews.
36. Michael Kors Tri-Fold Leather Wallet
A new wallet is a no-brainer gift for men and women alike—and this one has a designer label to boot. This Michael Kors Tri-Fold Leather Wallet by Michael Kors comes in both soft pink and acorn shades, including the “Michael Kors” logo printed across its front. The back has a zipper pocket for additional storage, and the interior has room for all her cards, cash and change.
37. Tuft & Needle sheets
For anyone who loves sleeping in (or sleeping in general), comfortable sheets are a must. No more tossing and turning in scratchy sheets because Tuft & Needle's Percale Sheet Set is made from 100% Supima cotton that is ultra smooth and only gets softer over time. These luxurious cooling sheets come in five colors and seven mattress sizes. They are perfect for a hot sleeper and anyone who values a good night's rest.
38. Madewell Leather Transport Tote
I have owned Madewell's Zip Top Transport Leather Tote for a few years now and recommend it as a gift for any woman who is always on the go. The classic tote is big enough to hold belongings for work and long weekends, and it's stylish enough to use even when there's not a lot in it. It's especially great for traveling because of the zip-top—and the fact it fits way more than you would think. When we tested it, we found that it was the "Goldilocks of bags—not too small, not too big, but just right." The bag comes in a few different colors, but the English Saddle color is the most popular.
39. GHD Curve Wand
The one who loves beauty products and having fabulous hair would love the GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand. When we tested curling irons, it came out on top as our favorite. Our beauty editor said, "It's intuitive, heats up quickly and makes the sometimes painstaking process of styling my hair all-around easier."
40. Apple AirPods Pro
Apple’s AirPods Pro are the best true wireless earbuds for iPhones our experts have ever tested. If you’re shopping for a lover of all things Apple, they would adore a pair of these—even if they already own the original AirPods. Who wouldn't love an upgrade? For Zoom meetings, working out and even listening to podcasts while loading and unloading the dishwasher, AirPods, along with a pretty new case, make a great gift. Not to mention, they feature active noise cancelation, an upgraded comfortable design and a new transparency mode if your giftee needs to tune into their surroundings.
41. An Eufy or iRobot vacuum
We love robot vacuums at Reviewed and so do our readers. In fact, one of the things our readers continue to buy over and over is robot vacuums. The eufy BoostIQ 11S Robot Vacuum Cleaner is the best affordable robot vacuum we’ve ever tested, thanks to its slim design and efficient dirt pickup, and would make a great gift for anyone, whether they enjoy cleaning or not. If you're willing to shell out some extra dollars, consider the best robot vacuum we’ve ever tested, the iRobot Roomba j7+. No matter what your budget is, a robot vacuum is always a good choice.
42. Philips Air Fryer
Air fryers have been one of the trendiest kitchen gadgets for a while now, as they offer a way to make home-cooked fried food that’s healthier than regular fried food. Philips Air Fryer XXL is the best air fryer we tested and would make a great gift for anyone who likes to cook and eat semi-healthy, and of course, has extra kitchen counter space. From frozen fries to hamburgers to Nashville hot chicken, this gadget could handle it all.
43. Gravity Blanket
Weighted blankets are great—and not just because they’re warm, but because they can help you relax. The best-weighted blanket we tested is the ultra-popular Gravity Blanket. Gravity claims their blanket is like wearing a hug. If you're shopping for someone who could use a hug or another blanket to lounge on the couch with, consider getting them this blanket. It's great to sleep with at night, too.
44. Ugg or L.L. Bean winter boots
If you’re shopping for someone who lives where it snows, a new, warm pair of winter boots would make for a smart gift. Ugg sells a fantastic pair of boots named UGG Adirondack III Waterproof Bootie that I own, love and recommend. They’re warm, comfortable, easy to put on and take off, and they go with just about every outfit. I'm not the only person who loves them, either. They have nearly a 4.7-star rating from more than 1,400 reviewers on Nordstrom's website. Another great option is the cult-favorite Women’s 8-inch Bean Boots from L.L.Bean.
45. Oculus Quest 2
If your giftee has been looking for ways to explore new worlds or get out of their own head, the Oculus Quest 2 might be the move. The console comes with 128GB of storage and the VR headset is equipped with an optimized display, capturing 50% more pixels than the original Quest model.
46. Garmin Forerunner 245 Running Watch
After testing running watches, the Garmin Forerunner 245 Running Watch took the top spot as the best one as it was both comfortable for all-day wear and offered a robust set of fitness tracking features. Whether the person you're shopping for Is training for their 10th marathon or just casually enjoys running, this watch would be welcomed with open arms—I mean wrists.
47. Apple Watch Series 7
If they don't own one already, an Apple Watch would be a fantastic gift for the one who is always on their iPhone. We tested the popular Apple Watch Series 7 and it is the best smartwatch we've ever tried, thanks to its stellar fitness tracking and blood oxygen sensor and larger display. Give the gift of our favorite smartwatch so they can have all of their notifications, music and texts at their fingertips all the time.
48. Staub Dutch Oven
A good Dutch oven is a kitchen staple and our favorite overall was this Staub Cast Iron 5.5 Quart Round Cocotte which was great at both braising meat and simmering stews. We're not the only ones loving this brand, either. The cookware is all over food blogs and Instagram. Clearly, these Dutch ovens are hot right now, so get one for the person in your life who loves cooking.
49. Myxfitness The Myx
If you're looking to splurge, The MYX II by Myxfitness is truly an amazing gift if you're shopping for someone who loves spinning. We recently tested exercise bikes and found this model to be the best-valued pick on the market. This bike comes with a Polar heart rate monitor visible on the screen that lets you hit three exertion zones. Unlike Peloton, the goal isn't RPMs (revolutions per minute of the flywheel), it's adjusting resistance so you hit your targetted heartrate. The display can also swivel any way you giftee wants as well, so they can take non-spinning classes like HIIT and barre too! Do note though classes are all on-demand, which might not be ideal if your giftee loves live classes.
50. Canada Goose jacket
If you're looking to splurge on someone who lives in a place where temperatures plummet to below freezing, a Canada Goose Shelburne Genuine Coyote Fur Trim Down Parka is a great choice. Yes, they are expensive, but we can confirm that they are worth the price. The Canada Goose Ellison Packable Down Jacket is another popular option at a more affordable price.
