Wondering if your friend or family member will like these coasters? Reviewers were overall pleased with the quality, thickness, style, and packaging, and one reviewer even found them pretty enough to hang on the wall.

6. SZELAM Store Digital Mirror Clock

Sale

Top Features:

  • Customizable brightness level 
  • Charge other devices
  • Use as a mirror

Sure, our phones can do everything and more, but we (like many others) are trying to be a little less attached at the hip to our devices going into 2022. This digital alarm clock with a mirrored surface is one of the best gifts for women who are trying to break up with their phone AND wants some luxe decor, too. 

Many reviewers (several of whom mentioned they found the product through TikTok) loved the look, brightness settings, and USB ports. However, a handful of people mentioned slight quality issues such as slow charging and time inaccuracies. Also, note that this product needs to be powered through a USB cord and not a standard AC cord.

Reviewers appreciated the ability to hang different lengths of necklaces on the bars of the organizer, and most felt the product did the job and looked good doing it.

  • Cotton wick and soy wax 
  • Great for yoga 

Whose house couldn’t use a little energy purification right now? For the friend who maintains a home that also feels kind of like a yoga studio, this palo santo, lavender, and sage candle that claims to reduce stress and cleanse auras is a thoughtful gift. 

Most reviewers loved the aroma of the candle, though not all since scent is definitely subjective. With any candle, it’s important to practice proper candle safety and keep wicks trimmed for the best experience.

11. Ashler Faux Sheepskin Rug

Top Features:

  • Multiple sizes and colors
  • Suede back

We’re always on the lookout for a fabulous faux fur rug. Whether tossed on the back of a chair, placed on a dining table bench, or used as an accent rug, this is one of the best gifts for women, especially your most “design-y” friends. 

There are plenty of options for sheepskin rugs on Amazon, but this one came back with particularly high ratings, and many customers praised the look and feel of the item. However, a product can’t get all positive reviews when so many people buy it, and some buyers felt the quality didn’t live up to expectations.

Top Features:

  • Charges six devices 
  • Attractive bamboo material

With so many devices, it can be so easy to let one run down its battery while you’re busy charging the others. Give your friends the gift of full power at all times with this bamboo charging station, which features the ability to charge six devices at once. 

Reviewers liked that this station kept all devices and cables together and looked nice as well. Some people complained the station wasn’t right for their type of tablet and that not all the chargers were Apple-compatible, so make sure to review the specifications to make sure it works for your giftee.

While it doesn’t entirely replace a manual vacuum, reviewers mainly were happy with this product. A very small minority of buyers received faulty products or simply weren’t happy with the way the eufy worked, so be sure to look through negative as well as positive reviews.

15. Kurrajong Farmhouse Artificial Plant

The best way to add life to a dull desk is with an artificial plant.

Top Features:

  • Realistic look 
  • Attractive cement pot

Some say gifting plants is bad luck, but they never said anything about fake plants. We’re going on the record to say we think this imitation succulent is a great, low-maintenance holiday gift for your busiest friends. 

According to reviewers, this plant looks real enough to fool people and is well worth the price. The main negatives — and there were few — focused on the plant being smaller than expected.
