For the fan of clean beauty: This set of goat milk soap
There are a few kinds of gifts that almost anyone will use and enjoy—food, vouchers and bath products all fall into this category. I love giving gifts that I know will used up. It’s a great way to guarantee satisfaction when you’re shopping for someone you don’t know well, or for someone who insists they don’t need anything new.
This set of gentle, palm-sized goat milk soap bars might be just the ticket. It includes eight 3.5-ounce bars of soap, plus a metal tin to stop the bars from dissolving too quickly. The soap is certified cruelty-free, and formulated without parabens, sulfates or formaldehydes. Reviewers say it has a great lather and moisturizes well, and that the variety of small bars is a fun way to try a few different fragrances before picking a favorite.

For the one who’s getting cozy at home: This loungewear set
This two-piece loungewear set made of a knit polyester blend, making it soft and stretchy enough to wear for a whole pajama day. It comes in a variety of patterns, from bold pink camo to neutral heathered taupe. Reviewers especially happy with the relaxed fit—many buyers even intentionally sized up for extra roominess. Customers also mention that the fabric is fairly lightweight, which is either a pro or a con, depending on who you ask. For fans, it’s a definite pro, since it means the set will be comfortable long after the snow melts.

For the lover of a hot beverage: A set of charming mugs
These four polka-dotted mugs are fun and festive, but they won’t need to put away once the holidays over. Not only are they dishwasher, microwave and freezer-safe—they’re also safe in the oven up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, making them perfect for mug cakes. QVC reviewers are huge fans of these mugs, noting that the bell-shaped design provides more room for coffee, tea, and hot cocoa. Since each of the mugs comes in an individual gift box, these would make perfect gifts for a whole family, or for four cozy friends.
Get the Temp-tations Set of 4 16-Ounce Mugs with Gift Boxes for $19.97
For the nester: This fragrance warmer
My knowledge of fragrance warmers comes entirely from one friend, who such a huge fan she’s had me on the brink of buying one for years. Fragrance warmers are the halfway point between oil diffusers and candles, melting scented wax without the need of a flame. This means there’s no need to unplug them or blow them out—a.k.a it’s perfect for your slightly absent-minded friend! Reviewers say this particular fragrance warmer is extremely easy to use, and that it does a great job spreading scents through the house.
Get the Perennial Fan Fragrance Warmer for $33.45
For the Marvel fan: A Black Panther waffle maker
I’m sure kids would love this, but I’m not about to tell you not to give it to the Marvel-loving adult in your life. This waffle maker is set up with nonstick plates you can wipe down for easy cleaning, turning out approximately 8-inch waffles embossed with King T’Challa’s iconic mask. Help them celebrate one of the all-time greatest superheroes with one of the all-time greatest breakfast foods—what’s not to love?
Get the Marvel Black Panther Waffle Maker for $29.99
For the trendy music lover: These noise-cancelling Beats headphones
Yes, Beats are trendy, but they’re popular for a reason. I adored my own pair of Beats Solo for years (and I’d still be adoring them if they hadn’t gotten stolen…whoops!). The on-ear pads means these headphones are small and compact, which is great for those of us who take them everywhere. The sound is bass-heavy but crisp and clear, and when the ear pads eventually start to wear, they’re easy to replace. Beats have performed well in our tests, although we’ve noted that they can feel tight on the head. I personally never found that to be a problem (call me pinhead), but it’s something to keep in mind when you’re shopping for someone with a slightly larger noggin.
Get the Beats Solo Pro Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones for $229.99
For the one who’s always complaining about cold feet: Our favorite slippers
These suede, plush-lined slippers from Minnetonka happen to be our very favorite women’s slippers on the market. We were blown away by how comfortable, durable and toasty warm they proved to be, all without breaking the bank. The rubber sole means they can easily be worn both indoors and outside, and will likely hold up well over time. QVC also offers Minnetonka slippers for men, which reviewers confirm are also super warm and cozy.
Get the Minnetonka Women’s Chesney Scuff Slippers for $45
For the world traveller: All the luggage they’ll ever need
Many of us aren’t expecting to travel any time soon—but even if that’s the case, we can at least look forward to the day when we can safely voyage to a brand new destination. This luggage set includes three-wheeled suitcases of different sizes, a garment bag and a bag for shoes. The suitcases lined with polyester, and come in a variety of designs, from deep red to dainty floral pinks and grays. Reviewers say that in person, the bags are chic, strong, stylish and roomy enough for any trip.
Get the Triforce Luggage Set of 3 Spinner Luggage – Avignon for $242
For the prolific baker: The gold standard of stand mixers
KitchenAid mixers have firmly cemented as the home chef’s standard for so long, I probably don’t need to convince you how great they are. The KitchenAid’s position isn’t all hype, either—in our tests of the best stand mixers on the market, this one stood head and shoulders above the rest. It’s easy to use, powerful without being excessively noisy and should work tirelessly for many, many years. The biggest drawback to a KitchenAid definitely the price tag, but if you’ve got some money to spend on someone who loves to bake, it’s a guaranteed hit.
Get the KitchenAid 3.5-Quart Artisan Stand Mixer with Flex Edge Beater for $263.61
For the stylish commuter: This leather laptop portfolio
According to reviewers, this leather shoulder bag is strong and supple, and provides plenty of room for a laptop, planner and stray papers. It comes with an adjustable shoulder strap to make commuting painless, but the strap can also removed if the portfolio lives at home. Having a convenient place to keep your laptop and work papers is really nice, even if you’re working from home. I personally store my work computer and notebooks in a single bag at the end of each day—it’s an easy way to keep work life separate from home life when you’re not physically leaving the space.
Get the Heritage Colombian Leather 16-Inch Laptop Portfolio for $110
For anyone who likes a candle: A fan-favorite two-pack
I’ll be honest: I will always, always be excited about a candle. They’re cozy, atmospheric, fragrant, unobstructive and useful—honestly, what more could you want? These 34-ounce jar candles from Keepers of the Light have amassed a cult-following across multiple stores and platforms. Fans rave that they’re the best candles they’ve ever burned, offering double wicks, a super long burn time of 155 hours and amazing, wafting fragrances. If you’re shopping for someone like me, who can be irritatingly vague about what they want, but who does love to curl up with a book and a cup of tea, they’ll probably love these candles.
Get A Cheerful Giver Set of Two 34-Ounce Papa Jar Candles for $49
For the budding gamer: The Nintendo Switch Lite
If you’ve got someone in your life who still hasn’t fallen to the intoxicating power of Animal Crossing, now’s the time to remedy that. QVC offers the Switch Lite in grey, blue, and yellow, and bundles it with important accessories like headphones and a screen protector. This a great console for people on the go—it’s actually small enough to fit comfortably in a coat pocket, and it doesn’t include any detachable pieces that might lost. Whether you’re shopping for someone who’s already into gaming, or if you’re trying to get them there, they’ll appreciate this.
Get the Nintendo Switch Lite with Accessories for $314.96
For the home chef: The best immersion blender you can buy
Immersion blenders are pretty awesome, and this is our favorite one available right now. This handheld mixer is less physically hefty than most conventional blenders, but it delivers on power and versatility. Its variety of attachments allow it to blend, whip and chop practically anything, without taking up lots of precious space on the counter. Immersion blenders are getting trendier all the time, but they’re still niche enough that there’s a good chance you could surprise your favorite home chef with a new gadget they don’t already have.
Get the Breville Control Grip BSB510XL Hand Mixer for $99.99
For the one who could use a little help relaxing: A weighted blanket
We’re big fans of weighted blankets at Reviewed. This heavy bedding can help calm stress and anxiety by providing a comforting pressure atop your body. We’ve tested this option from BlanQuil, and although it didn’t take our top spot, we still found it to be high-quality, and enjoyed the feeling of the warm, plush cover. This definitely a toasty warm blanket, so if you’re shopping for someone who’s prone to overheating at night. We recommend considering BlanQuil’s alternative weighted blanket that’s designed to stay cool.
Get the BlanQuil 48-Inch x 74-Inch 15-lb Weighted Blanket with Removable Cover for $159.50
For the amateur photographer: This rock-solid camera
I’m a Canon girl for life. I learned everything I know about film and photography with the Canon Rebel series, and I wouldn’t swap that experience for anything. This is a great line of accessible DSLR cameras that can serve a huge variety of purposes. The T6 is approachable for newbies, but it’s a solid enough camera to work on high-stakes projects. Along with the camera itself, this pack includes two lenses, so it can put to use right away.
Get the Canon Rebel T6 18MP DSLR Wi-Fi Camera w/18-55 75-300mm Lens, Bag & SD Card for $379.98
For the little one: An interactive elephant toy
This adorable plush elephant isn’t just huggable—it also sings and flaps its soft ears, playing peek-a-boo with little ones. Reviewers say that the elephant holds up well over time, and that once they warm up to it, toddlers find the peek-a-boo game absolutely hilarious. This is a great gift for any family with a new baby, or to expecting parents who are trying to round out their collection of toys.
Get the Flappy Animated Plush Elephant with Music by Gund for $27.96
For the health-conscious foodie: Our favorite air fryer
Air fryers are everywhere these days, gaining popularity for their ability to turn out crispy treats without excessive oil. Not all air fryers created equal, though—and this option from Philips ahead of the pack. We love how user-friendly it is, how much food it can handle in one go, and, most importantly, how consistently it churns out great results. It’s a hefty investment (and a hefty appliance), but if you’ve got someone in your life who’s interested in this trendy type of gadget, this the one to get.
Get the Philips XXL Twin TurboStar Airfryer for $299.99
For the one who’s always in the kitchen: This high-end Dutch oven
Dutch ovens are having a moment for a reason. From pot roasts to stews to loaves of perfectly-risen, crusty bread, they the job done. This fan-favorite from Le Creuset is one of the most well-regarded Dutch ovens on the market. It’s gorgeous, safe in temperatures up to 480 degrees Fahrenheit, and comes with a lifetime warranty. It tested extremely well in our kitchen, only losing points for its bulk. Le Creuset is a pricey brand, but fans say it pays off with a lifetime of impressive performance.
Get the Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron 5.5-Quart Round Dutch Oven for $360
For the lawn care enthusiast: An electric hedge trimmer
Know someone who takes a lot of pride in their yard care? This powerful hedge trimmer will let them exercise way more precision over their greenery. Reviewers say the trimmer is heavy, but not unwieldy, and that it cuts through shrubs like butter. While many of us are heading into the winter season, it’s never the wrong time to get excited for spring.
Get the Sun Joe 22-Inch 3.5-Amp Electric Hedge Trimmer for $50.18
For the DIYer with a sweet tooth: This nifty ice cream maker
This 2-quart ice cream maker attachment is the perfect step up for someone who already owns a KitchenAid mixer. Reviewers say that making ice cream with this gadget is fun, and report great success creating their own frosty treats. Because the bowl must frozen for hours in advance, it likely won’t turn out huge amounts of ice cream at a time. The appeal of this gadget is definitely the activity of making ice cream, so if you’re shopping for someone who’s less DIY and more interested in the desert itself, how about a subscription to an artisan ice cream delivery service instead?
Get the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment with Ice Cream Scoop for $66.92

These shoes are the perfect balance of fashion and function. The flexible knit body comes in a bunch of both vivid and subdued colors, hinting at their versatility.

Get the Skechers Ultra Flex Flat Knit Slip-On Shoes for $51.62 to $63.37
For the effortlessly cool: This classic fragrance duo
Vetiver is one of my very favorite scents. Warm and earthy, it’s got nuance while still being unobtrusive and comforting. This gender-neutral pack includes both a vetiver personal fragrance, and a floral pen spray that blends rose, jasmine, and peony. Both scents crafted from clean ingredients, providing straightforward, crisp fragrances that reviewers love.
Get the CLEAN Reserve Smoked Vetiver EDP and Pen SprayDuo for $95
For the one always battle dry skin: This amazing hand cream
L’Occitane’s shea butter hand cream is my personal all-time favorite hand moisturizer. Chances are you know someone who shares my struggle with dry skin in the wintertime—and if you do, you owe it to them to gift this product. This hand cream is incredibly replenishing, leaving skin feeling the way it does in summertime, even on the driest, coldest days. A little bit of this lightly scented cream goes a long way, and the small tubes stow easily in a purse or a pocket.
Get the L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream Quartet for $39.96
For the sock purist: A comfy set of ankle Bombas
When I was a kid, getting socks for the holidays was the biggest disappointment I could imagine. I know I speak for many proudly boring adults when I say that this is no longer the case—very little can get me as excited as a good pair of socks, and my Bombas are far and away my favorites. They’re durable, cute, warm and they provide just the right amount of compression. I love that these items feature seamless toes and a non-slip fit around the ankles, finally remedying the two most annoying aspects of conventional ankle socks.
Get the Bombas Set of 3 Ankle Socks for $36
For the life of the party: A top-performing portable speaker
We love Bose’s portable speakers, and we’re not the only ones. We’ve found that Bose speakers give reliably impeccable performance, with the main drawback usually being the above-average price point. If you’re shopping for an audiophile who likes to take the party with them, though, it’s worth every penny. This particular set includes a built-in mic so the speakers can used to take phone calls hands-free—a pretty nifty feature for those of us battling Zoom fatigue.
Get the Bose SoundLink Color Series II Bluetooth Portable Speaker for $79.96
For the classically stylish: This pair of gorgeous earrings
It can be risky to gift jewelry if you’re not completely certain of the receiver’s tastes, but these silver and gold toned earrings are elegant and minimalist enough to suit almost anyone. I love metallic drop earrings like these—they make a statement, but they’re easy to style for both casual and formal occasions. QVC reviewers share my enthusiasm, saying the earrings are lightweight and comfortable, standing out without pulling on the ears.
Get the Joan Rivers Set of 2 Triple Circle Drop Earrings for $46
For the one who’s always running out of juice: This portable charger and car jumper
I’m the first to admit I held onto my old phone longer than I should have. By the time I traded it in, it was reliably dying at 45%—or at 99% when the weather was freezing. I was always looking around the room for an outlet, and on more than one night out I lost my friends while their texts went unanswered. Know someone in this situation? Make their lives a little bit easier with this portable USB charger. This little guy is surprisingly powerful, according to reviews. It even comes with jumper cables, so your loved one will never stuck on the side of the road with a drained car battery and a dead phone.
Get the HALO Bolt Compact Portable Charger & Car Jump Starter for $74.96
For the future chef: A toy kitchen set
I can’t even tell you how much this highly-rated wooden toy set reminds me of my own childhood. Or how nice it is to know that kids are still out there playing restaurant. Reviewers have incredibly positive things to say about this set. They report that assembly easier than it looks, only taking about an hour for a single person, and that the set a massive hit with kids. Many reviewers like the natural feel of the wooden material, and appreciate. It’s bright and colorful without being overly cutesy, or targeted exclusively at little girls. It’s just a classic toy that will never go out of fashion.
Get the Teamson Kids Little Chef Burlywood Kitchen with Accessories for $99.99
For the one always running behind: This timeless wristwatch
Where’s the fun in gift-giving if you can’t use it as a tongue-in-cheek opportunity to make a point? Wristwatches are a classic gift because they’re stylish and universally useful. You don’t have to give this to someone who’s perpetually late, but that does sound satisfying. Reviewers really love this watch, with many mentioning it’s so good, they’ve bought it multiple times. Fans like the watch’s clean, easy-to-read face, its comfortable expansion band and the fact that it’s water-resistant. For the affordable price tag, buyers agree this Timex offers fantastic value.
Get the Timex Men’s Easy Reader Stainless Steel Watch and Expansion Band for $57
