2. Amazon Coat
A good winter coat can be hard to find. And a good winter coat that doesn’t cost hundreds of dollars can be even harder to find.

A portable Bluetooth speaker always comes in handy, whether your giftee is heading to the beach, the park or even the office. In testing the most popular models, our experts found the waterproof JBL Flip 5 outperformed many others in terms of aesthetics, durability and sound quality. It comes in 12 colors and prints, from teal to camo.
8. Capri Blue Candle
Candles make for a great gift for almost anyone on your list, from your coworkers to your mom to your best friend. One of the most popular candles you can buy is the Capri Blue in its original volcano scent, which is a blend of citrus and tropical fruit. It sells out often so you’ll want to snag one while you can. Available in marble, glitter, gradient and more, the jars are pretty enough to use well after the candle is finished, too.

You can’t go wrong gifting a young one a Nerf blaster. They’ll have loads of fun with the Strongarm N-Strike Elite shooting their siblings or friends with squishy ammo using the rotating, rapid-fire barrel that holds up to six darts at a time.

The popular game makes for a great stocking stuffer at just $25 and has nearly 115,000 rave reviews on Amazon. It’ll keep everyone entertained and laughing for hours and your giftee can eventually snag expansion packs and bundles to mix it up.
12. S’well Stainless Steel Water Bottle
