We all need our beauty sleep, so why not set them up for a successful slumber with one of the best sleep masks we've ever tested? Thanks to the Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask's contoured design, this cushy mask is like a blackout curtain for your eyes, preventing any light from creeping in.
5. For the one who likes their hair up: Invisibobble
The popular Invisibobble hair tie has over 22,000 Amazon reviews and a 4.5 out of 5-star rating. It is ideal for all hair types, making it an ideal stocking stuffer for anyone on your holiday shopping list who's rocking long hair.
The coiled hair ties are waterproof, won't break or damage most hair types, and, most importantly, don't leave a crease behind like other hair ties might.
6. For the one with dry hands: Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
A hand cream is one of the best things anyone can keep in their daily bag, which is why this five ounce bottle of Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve makes one of the best gifts under $25 you can give this holiday season. The Paraben-free lotion targets dryness and redness to provide maximum moisture to dry hands.
7. For the one who needs to relax: InnoGear Upgraded Diffuser
Sweet and calming scents can help them relax after a stressful holiday season—and an essential oil diffuser like this one from InnoGear can get the job done right. It is one of our favorite aromatherapy diffusers and can run relaxing scents like lavender and eucalyptus for up to 11 hours.
8. For the one wants to stay cool at work: SmartDevil Small Personal USB Desktop Fan
Whether working from home or back at the office, the SmartDevil Small Personal USB Desktop Fan provides an easy way to stay cool and keep the air flowing throughout the cubicle. Powered via USB cable, it takes up little to no desk pace.
9. For the one who loves competition: Codenames
Codenames is a team-based word association game where one player gives their team a single word clue and the number of cards on the board that clue pertains to and then they must figure out which cards they could be. It’s a simple, fun and entertaining game that only gets better the more you know your teammates.
10. For the one with chapped lips: Laneige Perfect Pair Lip Hydration Set
Laneige is a TikTok favorite beauty brand, so they will love to receive this mini hydration set. The Laneige Perfect Pair Lip Hydration Set is a two-piece lip hydration kit that comes with the Laneige Lip Glowy Balm in Berry and Lip Sleeking Mask in mango.
11. For the one who prefers tea: Manatea Silicone Tea Infuser
A hot cup of tea is a great way to unwind at the end of the day, especially with an adorable manatee-shaped tea infuser. The Manatea is not only adorable and punny, but it's also the best tea infuser we've ever tested because it fits snugly on mugs and doesn't let any tea leaves slip out.
12. For the one who drops their phone: Popsocket
Popsockets are the perfect phone accessory as they can be popped in or out to create an easy carrying handle or stand. This makes talking on the phone, FaceTiming, taking photos, watching YouTube, and anything else you might need your phone for much easier. Each one is swappable, so you can get a bunch of different tops to mix and match.
13. For the one with cold hands: Achiou Touchscreen Winter Gloves
Texting in the cold with your bare fingers exposed isn't enjoyable for long period of time, so a gift like a pair of touchscreen gloves may come in handy once cooler weather arrive. The Achiou Touchscreen Winter Gloves are one of the best touchscreen gloves we tested at Reviewed. Not only are they super warm, but also all 10 fingers are touchscreen compatible and we had no issues using our phones with them.
14. For the home chef: Lodge Mini Cast Iron Skillet
Cast iron cookware can do it all. From the stovetop to the oven and on the grill or over the fire pit, cast iron creates a sear that seriously upgrades whatever you're making. Lodge makes our favorite cast iron skillet, and you can gift them the adorable miniature version, the Lodge Mini Skillet. We love Lodge cast iron skillets because they are affordable, lightweight, have good nonstick properties and the handles are comfortable to grip.
15. For the eco-conscious one: FinalStraw
For a one of the best gifts under $25 with a focus on sustainability, you've got to go with a pack of reusable straw, and the FinalStraw may be the last straw they ever need. It is the best reusable straw because it conveniently folds up into a container that attaches to a keyring to keep with them while they're on the go.
16. For the egg aficionado: Dash Rapid Egg Cooker
The Dash Rapid Egg Cooker is one of the best gifts under $25 for anyone who has difficulty cooking eggs or claims they don't have enough time to make breakfast. This egg cooker makes breakfast a cinch can soft boil, hard boil, scramble and poach—all in one machine.
When we tried the Dash Egg Cooker, the hard-boiled eggs were hard-boiled, the poached eggs were poached and the omelettes were light and fluffy, making this the perfect gift for a college student in a dorm or anyone who wants to free up burner space when they're making Sunday brunch.
17. For the one who can never find their keys: Tile Mate
We all misplace our keys from time to time. With a handy Bluetooth digital tracking tag like Tile Mate, they will always be able to quickly find missing items within range.
The next time they lose their keys, they can just use an app to ping the Tile and quickly find them to actually meet you on time.
18. For the one who loves selfies: Qiaya Selfie Light Ring
Whether they've been mastering TikTok dances or are always trying to find the best lighting for their photos, a ring light will ensure they always have perfect lighting for selfies.
With three light settings, this one from Qiaya can brighten up self-portraits taken at night or in a dark room. The light is rechargeable, simply clips to the top of a phone, and is small enough to carry in a backpack, purse or pocket.
19. For the jetsetter: Etekcity Digital Luggage Scale
Any chronic over-packer will appreciate a digital luggage scale like. The Etekcity Luggage Scale is one of the best one we've ever tested because the screen is easy to read, it is light weight and (most importantly) it measures weight accurately.
20. For the lipstick lover: Wet 'n Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick
Matte lipsticks are all the rage for feeling glam, but Reviewed found that you don't have to break the bank to rock the style. The Wet 'n Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick is the best matte liquid lipstick because we found it to be a smooth lip color that comfortably lasts all day.
21. For the one who loves makeup: Milani Highly Rated Volume Mascara
You don't have to spend too much to give your recipient the gift of great lashes. The Milani Highly Rated Volume Mascara is the best drugstore mascara we've ever tested because it gives incredible length and volume for a fraction of the cost of high-end brands.
22. For the one who loves to bake: Rachael Ray Yum-o! Oven Lovin' Loaf Pan
The Rachael Ray Yum-o! Oven Lovin' Loaf Pan is perfect for those who are addicted to banana bread and pumpkin loafs. This nonstick pan landed in the top spot in our testing for a reason—it will ensure that her sweet and savory dishes come out perfectly for family and friends. The firm handles with silicone inserts are easy to handle and the pan is safe up to 500°F.
23. For the one with an aesthetic: Tiled Margot Monogrammed Mug
With a French bistro-inspired tile design, the Tiled Margot Monogrammed Mug is one that's almost too pretty to relegate to the back of a kitchen cabinet. Your coffee- or tea-drinking friend will love sporting one with their initial, so much that they may permanently display it on their desk or in their coffee station at home.
For an extra special touch, take a peek inside and there is an even more detailed design.
24. For the one who loves fun socks: Happy Socks
Socks make a great gift and they don't have to be boring. Happy Socks offers all sorts of hilarious socks like taco-themed boxes, corgi-lined socks and even a collection of Disney socks.

25. For the one who goes on long drives: Anker Car Charger
A car charger with two USB ports makes a great gift for anyone who spends time driving around in a car. Anker's car charger can charge two devices at the same time (cords not included). The portable car charger is compatible with iOS phones and tablets, as well as certain Android device models.
26. For the one who loves vegetables: Ontel Veggetti Spiralizer
Even for those who enjoy the taste of fresh vegetables, they can get kind of boring—chop, steam, eat, repeat with the best handheld spiralizer. The Ontel Veggetti Spiralizer easily turns zucchini, squash, carrots and other dense produce into noodle-like ribbons for delicious meals.
27. For the one who always asks for a foot rub: TheraFlow Foot Massager Roller
Massages can be expensive, and they definitely don't cost less than $25. However, if you're looking for a more affordable way to gift your friend or family member a little rest and relaxation, the Theraflow Foot Massager will get the job done and then some. With more than 10,000 reviews and a 4.5-star out of 5-tar rating, many love that the wooden roller has nubs and grooves designed to reach even the achiest spots like the arch of your foot, heels and more.
28. For the one who loves entertaining: Bamboo Cheese Board
We all have that friend who suggests a wine and cheese night every chance they get, so gift them a platter that will take their cheese board to the next level. This Bamboo Cheese Board is the perfect starting block to layer on favorites like brie, sharp cheddar and goat cheese alongside jams, assorted nuts and crackers.
29. For the wine lover: Yeti Rambler 10 oz. Tumbler
The Yeti Rambler 10 oz. tumbler make a great gift for the wine drinker who like to keep their wine at temperature. Keep your recipient's glass full and cold this season with Yeti’s stylish, stemless wine "glass" (that is a mouthful—no pun intended). They're dishwasher safe, too, and can also be used for other hot and cold drinks.
30. For the one who is always working out: JLab Go Air Pop
If you're shopping for somebody who already loves running, a solid pair of exercise-focused headphones like the JLab Go Air Pop earbuds are a great gift. They're less than $25, but they're built to last and are a solid pair of headphones. With great sound, great fit, and great battery, it's no wonder these are some of the best earbuds under $100. If you've got a runner or gym freak in your life, these are an affordable gift.
31. For the one with a fermentation station: Ball Mason Jars
Whether they’re pickling cucumbers or eggs, they may be at risk of running out of jars. These Ball Mason Jars have lids with bands, which ensures the content inside the jar is always airtight and can use it for other food storage purposes.

Knitting and winter just go together, and if you have an avid knitter in your life, they'll appreciate some new yarn for their various projects. Darn Good Yarn is a great place to find some. The company makes ethical yarn and provides sustainable jobs around the world, putting its mission first in all business practices. The yarn itself is cozy, comfy and easy to work with.
33. For the one who needs more space: SanDisk Extreme Pro SD Card
Whether they need more storage for their Nintendo Switch or camera, an SD is an unexpectedly thoughtful gift.

35. For the one who brews their own coffee: Counter Culture Coffee
If you know someone who weighs out their coffee beans and uses a gooseneck kettle, chances are they’re always on the hunt for fresh beans. When we tried various coffee subscriptions, we found Counter Culture Coffee delivers the freshest beans at an affordable price. You can give your recipient a subscription or a fresh bag of beans—they'll be happy with either.
36. For the one who loves trying new tea: Sips by subscription
If you really want to wow the tea lover in your life, get them a subscription to the tea membership club Sips. Our editor tested this service and raved about how wonderful her tea selection was. As with any food subscription service, there were clear winners and losers, but overall, she enjoyed the variety of teas she got to sample.
37. For the word wizard: Bananagrams
Bananagrams is like Scrabble but better. The game comes in an adorable banana carry case that's easy to travel with and bring to any party. This top-rated game can be played with up to eight people and is incredibly easy to learn, meaning you and your friends can play for hours during your next get-together.
38. For the novice home chef: Totally Bamboo Kauai Cutting Board
You might think that every cutting board is basically the same, but you’d be wrong. This medium-sized cutting board is made from two-tone bamboo, making it both harder and lighter than most wooden boards of the same size. The Totally Bamboo Kauai Cutting Board is the best cutting board to add to a family’s collection or replace that old one they’ve been meaning to throw out for a while.
39. For the one who doesn't want to carry much: Silk Wallet Slayer
We named the Silk Wallet Slayer our top choice for wallet/phone case hybrids because it does exactly what it claims to do: protects iPhones and holds cash and cards in a sleek, stylish package. The cardholder doesn't have a ton of space, which keeps it slim, but it's still more than sufficient to carry a driver's license and a credit or debit card or two.
40. For the one who loves kitchen gadgets: Chef'n FreshForce Citrus Juicer
A lemon juicer is one of those things you need, but when you go to juice a lemon, you just squeeze it to your best of your ability and then forget to buy one. Save them the hassle and get them the best citrus juicer we've ever tested, the Chef'n Fresh Force Citrus Juicer. It's easy to use, simple to store and and wasn't messy (which is incredibly important when you're working with messy fruits).
41. For the one who loves group photos: Fugetek Selfie Stick and Tripod
We all love a good group photo, but it's impossible to get one when no one else is around or sometimes awkward to ask for a picture. The Fugetek Selfie Stick and Tripod can help be their personal photographer. It comes with a Bluetooth remote that works with Apple and Android devices and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to one hour of constant use. The tripod extends up to 51 inches to help them get the right picture without any additional help.

Whether they need to zest lemons or shred parmesan cheese, a mini grater like the Microplane Premium Classic Series Zester Grater will come in handy. This celebrity chef-endorsed grater features made-in-the-USA, razor sharp stainless steel and the premium version has a soft touch handle, making it comfortable to hold. This grater is a game-changer because of its versatility and has the power to grind up whole spices as well.
43. For the one who forgets to unplug devices: Wyze Smart Plug
Have a friend who is always forgetting to shut off hot hair tools, the TV or something else that should be turned off before leaving the house? Get them our favorite smart plug, the Wyze Smart Plug, which can be controlled via the Wyze app, Google Assistant and Alexa. It’s easy to use, the set up is simple and they won’t have to worry about whether or not they remembered to unplug something.
44. For the one with the green thumb: Showa Atlas 370 Gloves
Any gardener will love a new pair of gardening gloves like our favorite affordable pair, the Showa Atlas 370 gloves.
