Below, shop what readers are saying is the best of the best of our holiday gift guides.

Best Gifts for Difficult People

What’s more gulp inducing than picking a gift for your difficult-to-buy-for host? Showing up to their shindig empty-handed. Avert the crisis with this selection of sustainably sourced tinned fish from Spain in hand. The sardines and mussels are standouts, and the colorful packaging is a plus.

Best Unique Gifts

Does the look of the vessel you sip from increase your H2O intake? Who could say? But the recipient of this artsy water bottle will certainly want to have it by their side at all times.

Best Unique Amazon Gifts

According to Amazon reviewers, you can’t go wrong with this fresh-scented soap. “It’s worth it since it lasts a LONG time,” one pleased purchaser writes. “It smells nice and doesn’t get mushy like so many other soaps.” Another writes, “The texture from the embedded salt, the way it lathers, and most of all the scent.”

Best Gifts Under $50

The general consensus among readers and buyers is that this smooth, versatile sweater gets you plenty bang for your buck. Also? It looks way pricier than it is. Choose from 14 shades and welcome your giftee into the comfortably cashmere crew.

Best Gifts Under $25

For that meticulous plant parent who cares for their greenery with flair, we suggest this elegant, handmade glass-blown watering ball from Italian glassware brand Ichendorf Milano.

Best Gifts for Women

We chose this self-care set from South Korea–based Nonfiction for moms and mothers-in-law to gently encourage them to engage in some self-care. Inside the very pretty box are four cruelty-free, fragrant products: Gentle Night Body Wash, Santal Cream Body Lotion, Forget Me Not Hand Wash, and Gaiac Flower Hand Cream.

Great Gifts for Men

Take it from reviewers: This small tabletop firepit with a high-heat ceramic coating packs quite the punch. One touts it as “the perfect addition” to an outdoor sunporch, and another writes, “Love this little but mighty stove! We use it on our patio table and it not only sets a mood but gives off plenty of heat.” Stick to a sleek stainless steel exterior or go with one of five colors to complete their ideal hangout spot. 

Best Gifts for Kids on Amazon

We keep a close eye on home goods from Brooklyn-based brand Areaware—see its stacking planters, bookends and vases—but the Cubebot is a perennial favorite that invites kiddos to get a piece of the design pie. Watch them transform the hardworking toy into an action figure, a puzzle, and a robot, before folding it up into a cube for easy storage.

Best Gifts for Mom

A looks-as-good-as-it-feels bathrobe always equals a gifting win. Get in Mom’s good graces—and remain there—by giving her this cute, comfy cover-up.

Best Friend Gifts

A sign of someone who knows their BFF well is the ability to divine exactly what type of gift will make them tear up or giggle. In our deputy commerce editor’s case, it’s a limited-edition indigo cap from Fishwife sporting mermaid embroidery that’s made by a woman-owned business in Atlanta. 

Unique Secret Santa Gifts

Scalloped edges and playful patterns make these sweet cocktail napkins from Matilda Goad unique. The under-$30 price means they’re a steal, and we’re sure they’ll have the same alluring effect on your Secret Santa gift recipient. 

Best Christmas Gift Baskets

In our lineup of gift baskets (that are actually boxes), the Omsom Try ’Em All Set was a clear favorite. Dubbed “bliss in a box” by reviewers, the set comes with 15 gluten-free starter sauces, among them Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Thai flavors. “My secret for a quick, delicious, and healthy meal,” one reviewer writes. “Even for folks who don’t know how to cook!”

Best White Elephant Gifts

If your White Elephant Christmas gathering includes someone who’s always toting around a pair of binoculars, count on them to be chirping over this hilarious, satirical roundup of 50 different North American bird species.

Best Food Gifts

For the farmers’-market head. We love the playful illustrations of produce on Baggu’s oven mitt, and so do our readers. It is quilted and comes with a hanging loop—and it’s machine washable. There’s also a set of pot holders in the same pattern if you want to make it a full set.

Best Advent Calendars

Readers have been snapping up the In Good Taste Advent calendar, which comes with 24 nights’ worth of mini bottles of premium wines from Spain, Sicily, California, and beyond. To enhance the tasting experience, the calendar includes a book filled with food pairing suggestions.

Best Anthropologie Gifts on Sale

Looking to make a well-deserved fuss over the newborn in your life? Start with this ultra-adorable animal-themed gift set. Each includes a cotton blanket, a pair of booties, and a rattle in either a zebra or butterfly appliqué pattern.
