1. A supremely soft pair of TikTok-famous fuzzy slippers they can keep by their bed so their precious feet won’t have to touch a freezing cold hardwood floor first thing in the morning (the worst!). Plus, they’re just really cute.

See them on one TikToker who calls them the “comfiest slippers on Amazon” here!

Promising review: “These slippers are amazing! Discovered them on TikTok and went back and forth about ordering them but wow, they are so comfortable. I have barely taken them off since receiving them. They are so fluffy and stay on my feet surprisingly well when walking around the house. Can’t wait until more colors are in stock to get another pair.” —MSumm

Each set includes different scents to help relax, invigorate, or even clear the sinuses. Scents include lavender, menthol-eucalyptus, vanilla, and pomegranate-rose. They’re also nonslip, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Promising review: “I am in love with the shower steamer bombs. They smell so good in the package and even better in the shower. I do not have a tub for bath bombs so when I found these I was so happy. Once I used them I was overjoyed because they were so calming and relaxing and I didn’t feel left out. Thank you for taking the time to think about the shower experience and making it better. I will be ordering more soon.” —Stina

The rechargeable case can have them fully juiced up in under two hours. 

Promising review: “Best decision! These are the greatest headphones ever! I saw them on TikTok months ago and added them to my wishlist.

4. A delightfully unexpected Lego orchid set made for adults, because why give them a high-maintenance bouquet that’s only gonna wilt in three days when you can give them something they’ll have so much fun building? They can also keep it on display once it’s complete — it’s that pretty!

This set has 608 pieces!

Promising review: “Zen in a box!! The one plant I’ve had a hard time growing here are orchids. This was so relaxing to do, with easy directions to follow, a final look that is actually quite realistic, and it can be changed to make it ‘grow.’ Really a pleasure, and the kit is quite gift-able to model builders and puzzle fans.” —Art Lady Colorado

Reviewer photo of a cold brew maker next to a glass of iced coffee

This product couldn’t be more foolproof: Just pour any type of ground coffee into the filter, place it into the pitcher with cold water, shake, and refrigerate. It’s BPA free, and can make up to one or two quarts at a time.

Promising review: “I love this cold brew system. I did have an expensive Pampered Chef system, but broke the pot. I bought this system as a replacement, and I like it much better. The coffee is great, and I have had zero problems with loose coffee grounds, even when I use bagged ground coffee instead of coarsely ground coffee, as is suggested.” —Erin

Birthdate Co.

Birthdate Co. is a small biz that, in addition to their popular birthdate candles, also makes birthdate books designed to help you discover more about your personality. 

Promising review: “I love this candle so much! I want to get one for every single person I know.

Thanks so much for an amazing product.” —Bailey E.

8. And a VERY handy electric lighter that’ll ~light up~ their life (while keeping their precious fingies safe from scary matches!). This will help them light all of their favorite candles with confidence, and easily reach low wicks in those super narrow candle holders. Bonus: It’s really pretty, too!

Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed Shopping’s Emma Lord says: “This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I’m a big weenie about fire (LOL, self-preservation) so I’ve always stuck to extended-arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it. You can read my full Leejie electric lighter review for more deets!

Promising review: “Works like a charm. I saw this in a TikTok. Knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month.” —dwhite3012

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping; non-Prime shipping options should still arrive by Valentine’s Day (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in five colors).

9. A fantastical 1,000-piece Mystic Maze puzzle, because if your SO loves doing jigsaws, they’ve probably never seen one like this before. It’s full of teeny details to discover along the way, and upon completion they’ll be rewarded with a magical surprise ending!

You ~could~ check out a TikTok of the Mystic Maze puzzle here, but be forewarned that it contains spoilers!

Promising review: “I bought this as a gift for my husband because he absolutely loves puzzles and magic, so it was a no-brainer! I was honestly way more excited to finish putting this puzzle together than a normal puzzle because I couldn’t wait to see the end result. Blown away. I’m super impressed and will be purchasing a different version. Oh, and they weren’t kidding about the no dust in the box…very pleased with this purchase!” —Nlbrimberry

Shipping info: Items typically arrive within 5 days, and expedited 3-day shipping is available for an additional cost (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

10. A luxurious towel warmer so your lover can have that tingly spa experience right at home. Seriously, this will become their new “Whatever did I do without this?” favorite thing and getting out of the shower will never be the same.

It fits one oversized bath towel and they can program the heat in 15-minute intervals up to an hour.

Promising review: “We found this on TikTok and got it for ourselves for Xmas. Definitely not a necessity in life, but it’s really nice to have, especially now in winter. We love to use it for our babies and I’m sure they like it as well. We haven’t had any issues with use. I use a large, thick beach-size towel normally and that fits fine in there. The minimum time setting is 15 minutes, but you don’t need to have it in there for the full 15 to get it warm.” —Sam Pereyra

Shipping info: Items typically arrive within 6 days, and expedited 2-day shipping is available for an additional cost (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

11. A sleek cordless portable charger, which will reeeally come in handy when they’re at 11% battery with no outlets in sight. Now they’ll always be just a heart emoji–filled text away. 🥰

Britt: “I’d had my eye on this bad boy for a while, and finally ordered it to take on a two-week trip to Europe. Let me tell you: LIFESAVER. I’m the type of person who loves to spend hours and hours exploring new cities, but with the amount of photos and videos I take, my phone’s battery tends to drain really quickly (relying on Google Maps to get literally everywhere doesn’t help, either). With this, I knew I’d have some backup when there weren’t any outlets nearby, and it was *so* nice not having to connect my phone to a clunky charging bank via cord. 100% recommend!”

Promising review: “The holy grail of portable chargers!!! I was traveling to Disney for vacation and knowing me, I would drain my battery with just taking pictures alone. I wanted a portable battery but didn’t want a carry a cord either, so I was excited when I found this little baby! It does exactly as described, pretty pink color, and I get one full charge of battery for my iPhone 11. Get it, you will not be disappointed!” —Meghan Doble

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping; non-Prime shipping options should still arrive by Valentine’s Day (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Verloop

Verloop is an AAPI-, woman-, and family-owned small biz making just the most *delightful* knits, including fun home decor and cozy outerwear accessories. 

Britt: “I recently bought a Verloop throw blanket because I’d been admiring them for AGES, and I needed something that would make my gray couch a liiittle less boring. It’s the perfect colorful touch my living room had been begging for, and it’s also extremely soft (I will not tolerate scratchy fabrics, so I was thrilled when I felt how comfy it was). I’m actually curled up in it as I type this, and even though it’s a bit of a splurge, I think it’s 100% worth the money for the quality craftsmanship and the amount of joy it brings me whenever I look at it. Hands down the best home purchase I made last year.”

Get it from Verloop for $89+ (available in many colors and patterns).

five of book of the month's book choices

What they’ll get: They’ll be able to choose from 5–7 featured books every month, or skip a month and wait for books that speak to them (their credits roll over). They can also browse past picks to see if any of those books are of interest. Plus, they’ll sometimes have access to early releases! 

BuzzFeed Shopping contributor Rachel Dunkel says: “I adore my Book of the Month subscription! It keeps me sharp, researching titles and always looking forward to a new read. It also makes an incredible gift! I’ve actually given BOTM to my mom a few times and it’s really fun to be members at the same time so we can read the same books, exchange them after we finish, and talk about what we’re going to get each month! Every month you get your choice of one of five to seven titles with an option to skip a month and save your credit for whenever you please. Especially as quarantine wears on, I’m especially thankful to have good books arriving all the time to keep me occupied.”

Shipping info: Typically, boxes take 5–7 business days to ship. Upon placing your order, you’ll receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information and an estimated delivery date. You can also have an email sent to your recipient to let them know it’s coming, or opt for a print-at-home card to give them.

Man Crates

It comes with 10 pieces of beef jerky in different flavors like sesame ginger, honey bourbon, and ghost pepper.

Get it from Man Crates for $39.99.

15. The Adventure Challenge, which is chock full of fun date ideas to keep things fresh and exciting.

17. A world destinations scratch-off poster that’ll let them keep track of (and show off!) all of the sights they’ve seen throughout their travels. And scratching off each square is so immensely satisfying.

Amazon

It includes 100 of the world’s most famous destinations!

Promising review: “Love love love! I had been eyeing maps of this type for a long time before a friend showed me this one. The greatest destinations theme is unique compared to the typical states/national parks/countries countdown. Being an avid traveler (I am about to visit my 40th country!) I had heard of most of the destinations — but I was impressed that there were a few new ideas. I was also pleased to find some of my favorite places on the poster that don’t usually come up as commonly known ‘great destinations’ — such as a glacier lagoon in Iceland and glaciers in New Zealand — in addition to classics like the Colosseum. Scratching off the places I have been to definitely left me wanting to visit more! 

“The foil came off easily with a firm press, and even though they recommend scratching it with the cap of the gift box, I used a euro for sentiment. No matter how rough I was with it, it didn’t scratch the picture. The size is great. It’s prominent and easy to read without needing an absurd amount of space. The material of the paper is not at all what I think of when I think of paper. It’s very thick and sturdy. Walking around the house holding it up to different walls to decide where to put it I did not worry about tearing it or feel like I needed to be particularly careful. Overall, no hesitation on the five stars and if you’ve been looking for something like this, this is it! Highly highly recommend.” —Alexandria

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping; non-Prime shipping options should still arrive by Valentine’s Day (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $26.99

18. A palm-sized hot stone massager you should present to them with an IOU worthy of 10 pampering sessions they can redeem from you whenever they’d like to unwind. Just fill it with hot water and the warm, soothing sensation will make them think they hired a professional masseuse!

Promising review: “This tool is epic. I use it to get knots out of my muscles. It keeps hot to warm for a good 30 minutes. And it fits in your palm perfectly! I’m a hoarder of self-care tools and this little tool is at the top of my list!” —Kim R.

19. Bards Dispense Profanity party game in honor of their deep admiration for both Shakespeare and absurdist humor. 

the card game

Amazon

The game works a lot like Cards Against Humanity or What Do You Meme? A player puts down a prompt and all the other players put down cards with Shakespeare quotes on them in hopes of their answers being chosen. Just note that it isn’t for kids: The results can get pretty raunchy.

Promising review: “THIS GAME IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO ENJOY, whether you know anything about Shakespeare or not — it makes no difference. I had no idea how much wit and how much ‘inappropriate’ language are in his plays. It’s extremely easy to learn so you aren’t wasting time reading instructions. In fact, the very-brief instructions say to just play until you get bored. 😉 Nothing serious about this game!” —Long Beach Native

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping; non-Prime shipping options should still arrive by Valentine’s Day (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $28.95.

Amazon

Promising review:I LOVE this snail. I mean, I knew he was gonna be cute, I was excited to get him in the mail, but the amount of joy he brings my household is ridiculous. This is one of my favorite things about my kitchen, and I have a damn cute kitchen. He isn’t incredibly sturdy but he doesn’t need to be, and for the price I have no qualms. He doesn’t hold much soap at a time but again, he makes us so happy that we literally could not care less. I named him Frank and I smile every time I wash dishes. We even catch ourselves thanking him and saying hi to him now and then. 10/10 just buy the snail.” —Amazon Customer

Fly By Jing, Fly By Jing

Fly By Jing is an Asian woman-owned small business that makes sauces, seasonings, and dumplings featuring flavors from Sichuan.

Britt: “Ever since my sister introduced me to this life-changing condiment, I’ve slathered it on pretty much everything I could think of — from roasted vegetables and noodles to seafood and popcorn. It’s got a kick, yes, and while I’m a big fan of spicy food, the thing I love most about this chili crisp is that it also has great flavor that doesn’t get overpowered by the heat, which happens with so many other spicy sauces. That deep savory flavor comes from ingredients like fermented black bean, shallots, mushroom powder, ginger, and seaweed, so it’s no wonder it’s become my go-to pantry staple when I want to zhuzh up my dinner in a matter of seconds. PS: Some people even swear by it as an ice cream topping!”

Amazon shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping; non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Valentine’s Day (see Amazon’s full shipping information here).

There are eight drops in a variety of flavors — like citrus ginger and sweet peppermint — in each box. Since these are made of loose leaf tea, they can expect some sediment on the bottom of each cup. 

Promising review: Such a fun idea and the tea tastes great! My grandmother LOVED getting this as a gift. I explained to her about how it worked and that there would be a little left in the bottom at the end and it wasn’t a problem for us at all. Definitely recommend!” —Squire

Promising review: “Bought for a white elephant gift exchange…and my wife stole it from my family — which was awesome. She made it, and we’re thrilled with the results! We have already gone through half of the gin she made (really, we don’t have a problem) as it’s both fine for sipping, as well as mixing with some of our typical gin cocktails. We’re looking forward to making another batch.” —Pete

Promising review: “It has everything you need to start a first batch of kombucha. It includes clear instructions on how to make it and continue your kombucha for the second batch. Now I’m making my third batch and loving it so far. After the first batch, you will need to find your own tea leaves and sugar but it’s fun trying different tea to see how differently it tastes. It’s also fun trying different fruits/spices for second fermentation. If you purchase this kit as your first kombucha investment, you can brew your kombucha forever only with additional tea leaves and sugar.” —Udon

It takes time and some small scrapbook scissors to cut all the letters apart, but worth the time so they don’t have the little nubs on them. Adorable!

Promising review: “This is an incredible machine for foot pain. It ranges in pressure from ‘firm, relaxing massage’ to deep kneading. I have issues with my feet and a lot of pain as a result, so I use the medium setting with heat for 15 minutes and then the high setting with heat for 15 minutes. Best 30 minutes of my day.

Central Coast Woodworks is a small biz based in Orcutt, California, that makes tortilla presses they’ll want to keep out on their counter at all times just so they can admire them. Keep in mind that the tortilla press is meant for making corn tortillas, not flour ones.

Promising review: “I’ve been watching the Mexican cooking class on MasterClass and after the lesson on tortillas, I knew I wanted to try to make my own. I’d read you can use two cutting boards, so I tried that first, and while it worked, it definitely wasn’t quick and easy. So I looked online to see what I could find. In the class, she uses a wooden press, so I knew what I wanted, but I did look at the cast iron ones as well. The reviews on the cast iron presses would have comments about the handle breaking off or other issues with the press, so I decided to look for something I’d enjoy using and that would look nice on my countertop. I knew I wanted this one as soon as I saw it, and the reviews just confirmed it. I could hardly wait during the week it took to receive my order, but it definitely was worth the wait. We’ve used this every day since receiving it and absolutely love the results. The tortillas come out perfect every time.” —T. Bramhall

Really helps take the edge off after a long day. The thing is way sturdier than you’d expect, I’ve tugged on it and it’s not going anywhere. The slotted design allows you to use stemmed wineglasses, too. A truly perfect product. This piece of plastic is working as hard as my therapist and I stan.” —Steven

He likes how clean his skin feels after using this soap. It’s large bar of soap, so you get a lot of bang for your buck! It will definitely last a while.” —Sara

The jars are BPA-free as well as microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

BuzzFeed Shopping contributor Rachel Dunkel says: “Before working from home became the norm, I would use these handy jars to bring my lunch almost every day. They’re perfect for things like fruit, salad, or something saucy — stuff you really don’t want to get squished *and* want to ensure doesn’t leak into your bag. *But* I have found that I use them just as much at home full-time! They are of course great for leftovers, but also for prepped ingredients for the week. Shedded cheese, prepped chicken, and chopped veggies usually live in these, ready to be utilized for a quick lunch or snack. They clean *super* well — I even have the cream color and it recovered from storing beets! 10/10 from me.”

Promising review: “I love this lip mask! I have always struggled to find a lip product that would keep my severely dry lips at bay and this is the product!

Britt Ross / BuzzFeed

Britt: “This is the exact machine I use to help me fall asleep each and every night, and it’s an absolute game-changer. When I first moved to my current house, I quickly realized I’d been ~blessed~ with neighbors who think it’s perfectly acceptable to throw outdoor parties at midnight on a Tuesday, and I knew I’d need something to drown out their literal shrieking in order to get any sleep. Enter: my beloved LectroFan, which I’ll be the first to admit is nothing fancy, but 100% gets the job done. It comes with 20 non-looping sounds, and you can let it go all night or set it for an hour (I’m of the ‘all night’ persuasion and it usually has me conking out like a baby). I’m not the most savvy when it comes to tech and gadgets so I appreciate the minimalist interface, and it’s proven to be incredibly user-friendly, even for me. Plus, since it weighs just over a pound, it would be a great thing to pack on a trip juuust in case your hotel room neighbors like to rage at 3 a.m. so you’re not laying in bed like 😳.”

Promising review: “I live on an extremely busy city street and I have sensitivity to constant, random noises. This little slice of heaven got delivered less than an hour ago, is set at brown noise volume 3, and I’m at peace. I truly am so glad I stumbled upon this device. Extremely easy to use, nice to look at, tiny but plenty of volume. Cheers to finally sleeping again!” —Cat

P.S. The blending bowl also doubles as a portable thermos and comes with a screw-on drinking lid and carry cap.

Britt: “I got this blender last summer, and wow, as someone who had firmly decided I was an ‘I don’t need a blender’ person, I quickly changed my mind after the first use. For starters, it’s not as large as those super industrial-strength blenders, and it’s so aesthetically-pleasing that I have it out on my counter at all times. Plus, it couldn’t be easier to use — just fill the bowl with your ingredients, pulse, and in a matter of ~moments~ you’ll have a perfectly uniform blend of whatever you’re trying to blitz. I first tried it out on a smoothie made with frozen bananas and peaches (see it in action on TikTok here!), and it pulverized the icy fruit like a champ. Best of all? It’s a total breeze to clean, which, if I’m being honest, was probably the biggest factor in my having waited so long to add a blender to my kitchen arsenal. I can’t recommend it enough, 15/10, no notes.”

Amazon

A beloved kitchen brand in its own right, Lodge is known for its durable cast iron cookware, and this Dutch oven is no exception. It’s coated in enamel for easy cleanup, and can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit — though it’s also a pro at trapping in juices for tender braises and retaining heat for evenly cooked roasts. They can even use it to bake bread! To help prevent the enamel from chipping, they shouldn’t use it with metal kitchen tools, and should always wash it by hand with non-abrasive cleaning products.

Promising review: “I’ve used many Le Creuset pans and had great results with almost all. I was getting ready to replace a 4.5-quart Dutch oven after 20+ years of regular use because the enamel was starting to wear thin, creating a hot spot that scorched the food, when I found the Lodge enameled cast iron. I was skeptical, but gave it a try and so far — only a month or two — it’s every bit as good as the Le Creuset, and cost about a third as much.” —Rootlesscosmo

Promising review: “Gave this to my lovely wife for her birthday. She had been looking for a cookbook to write down recipes she loved or invented. The quality of this book and slipcover are such that someday our children or grandchildren will inherit the family recipes. Neat layout, with options that other books don’t have.” —Bladesmith

58. Or The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook, because you once overheard them say they could eat Dole Whip for every meal (same, tbh). Oh, and now they won’t feel bad about going straight for the ears on their Mickey Pretzels, since they’ll be in the comfort of their own kitchen.

Promising review: “First let me say I’m not a professional photographer, but photography is a hobby I’ve had for 20 years. So I’d say I’ve have more general knowledge and higher photo quality expectations than the average person with a smart phone. My biggest hangup up until now was that for most lenses I had to use my phone without a case or with a special case I had to buy from the lens manufacturer. These were both deal breakers for me. I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money, because if I need to take a photo that’s really important I would use my DSLR instead of my smartphone. I just wanted something to give my smartphone more versatility and that would be easy to carry or have in my bag when I needed it. Also, I wanted something that wouldn’t be obsolete with the purchase of my next smartphone. I didn’t find anything that checked all these boxes for me until Xenvo. I have an iPhone XR, and I use a Loopy case. The Xenvo clips right on top of my case no problem. 

“Before I received my package in the mail, I received an email from the seller telling me to make sure to look inside the package when I received it to find some information I should watch before using it. When I did receive the package, I found this credit card-sized thing inside that’s actually a little usb flash drive. I plugged it in to my computer and up popped four tutorial videos explaining each lens, the LED light, and everything else you receive. It was really helpful as there were some tips and tricks as well as examples of how to use everything. I’ve taken some photos, and I’ve been very happy with them.” —MicheleD
