The Rankings

LifeStraw Home Glass Water Filter Pitcher
Rank & Style Approved


LifeStraw Home Glass Water Filter Pitcher

BEST FOR: Life Straw Home is the only water filtration pitcher that protects against bacteria, parasites, microplastics, heavy metals including lead, mercury, and chromium III, and organic chemical matter like pesticides and herbicides.

HELPFUL TIP: The sleek pitcher is made from shatter-resistant glass and features an easy-fill lid. It can hold up to seven cups of refreshing, clean water and fits in most refrigerator doors.

Act+Acre Cold Processed Mini Essentials Set

BEST FOR: This vegan haircare trio has taken the internet and scalps across the nation by storm. It's safe for chemically treated and color-treated hair, so it's perfect for anyone on your list looking to up their haircare game. 

WHAT IT DOES: Kiss dry and damaged hair goodbye. This cold-processed kit aids in balancing the scalp, strengthening the hair, stimulating hair growth, and protecting the hair shaft.

Daily Harvest Gift Box

BEST FOR: Finding gifts for healthy eaters can be a big ask. Thankfully, Daily Harvest is up to the challenge. This box includes nourishing food that's ready in minutes no matter where they are. There are even options for dedicated dieters, chocolate lovers, and cilantro haters. 

LOVED FOR: This is quite literally a healthy gift basket that anyone could appreciate, especially if cooking doesn't rank high in their skillset. To enjoy these chef-prepared recipes, you just need two basic skills: blending and heating.

Wildling Empress Collection

BEST FOR: For the skincare-obsessed, there couldn't be a more perfect gift. This gua sha kit includes everything they need to enhance their existing skincare routine.

USERS SAID: "This collection is beautifully presented, and using it feels like a luxury spa experience every time. I received it as a gift and immediately bought one as a gift for someone else to pay it forward! It truly is one of the nicest gifts I have ever received."

Bath Haven Luxurious Bath Pillow

BEST FOR: Say hello to the best wellness gift for him or her. This luxurious bath pillow strategically supports the bones and muscles in the neck, head, and shoulders. 

USERS SAID: "First of all, I have tried so many bath pillows, and they were all a disappointment. Because of the reviews, I was willing to give this one a try. I was a little apprehensive due to the price, but I took the plunge, and I'm glad I did. I love this pillow! They covered everything I had an issue with regarding the other bath pillows."

Knack Just Breathe Spa Gift

BEST FOR: A spa day might not be realistic at the moment, but that shouldn't stop anyone from treating themselves to spa-quality treatment at home. This kit includes everything they need for a tropical island getaway—minus the plane ticket. 

HELPFUL TIP:  Psst—add a stylized message, photo, logo, or voice message for a personalized touch.

InnoGear Essential Oil Diffuser with Oils

LOVED FOR: In case you haven't heard, essential oil diffusers are all the rage. This aromatherapy device includes six therapeutic grade essential oils—perfect for anyone on your gift list who could use some time to de-stress and decompress. 

BEST FOR: We love this little diffuser for desk-top use during the day. It also makes a great addition to your nightstand. 

Intelligent Change Inc. The Five Minute Journal

BEST FOR: The Five Minute Journal is something we could all use to improve our mental well being on a daily basis. 

USERS SAID: "I recommend The Five Minute Journal to anyone who struggles with taking a moment to plan, evaluate, and be grateful. It's also a great tool if you're a writer or communicator and need to be writing every day. I am so pleased with this purchase!"

Nodpod Weighted Eye Mask

BEST FOR: If you know someone who takes their sleep seriously, look no further—this will go perfectly with their weighted blanket.

USERS SAID: "I love this thing! I initially got it for headache relief, particularly during sinus headaches. I actually use it every night when I go to bed. The two different materials really do work to heat or cool, and I love this feature as well."

Magic Bullet Blender

BEST FOR: As the saying goes, health is wealth—but that doesn't mean it should cost you an arm and a leg. This single-serving blender is perfect for anyone looking to explore the benefits of blended smoothies for less than $40.

USERS SAID: "My roommate had one and I had to get one after using it almost every day. I started out with smoothies but it turned out to be great for blending sauces and other food prep materials. It's small which I love because it makes it easier to clean and hold. I hate how heavy some bulky blenders are even though they are probably more powerful. This fits well in our tiny apartment."
