Save yourself a chaotic trip to the shopping mall and tick names off your list with just a few clicks. (And, psst… We won’t tell if you treat yourself!)
Crock Book Holder
Your Kitchen Helper
We love when a kitchen tool pulls double duty. The crock holds whisks, ladles and spatulas at arm’s length while the adjustable, clear holder keeps even the largest cookbooks upright and open to your favorite recipe. There’s even a flip-down tab that keeps your tablet upright, should you be making an online recipe. Bonus: saved counter space! $24.95 at Cooking.com
Tory Burch Fitbit
Sweat in Style
Did you know that all Fitbit devices now sync with the Weight Watchers app? Yep, it can track Activity PointsPlus values! If you want a little bling with your burn, check out this designer bracelet that holds onto your activity tracker while staying on trend. $195 at ToryBurch.com
Kitchen Curry Master
The Art of Curry
Indian food is bold and flavorful, but can be intimidating to a beginner. This set gives you everything you need to succeed: 12 key spices — some of which are difficult to find or expensive to purchase separately — and a cookbook with more than 25 fool-proof vegetarian, meat and seafood dishes. Get ready to impress at your next dinner party. $59 at KitchenCurryMaster.com
UE Boom
The Best Beats
Consider this Bluetooth-enabled speaker your 24/7 sidekick: it blasts surround sound for working out in your living room, you can play DJ at a party straight from your smartphone, and it’ll even wake you up the next morning with its built-in alarm clock functionality. Other perks: it’s water resistant (is it summer yet?) and has a 15-hour continuous battery life. $199 at UltimateEars.com
Slice and Sharpen
Slice and Sharpen
Why didn’t we think of that?! A cutting board with a built-in knife sharpener — genius! The board features a rubber edge to ensure it will stay in place while sharpening, as well as a knife-friendly cutting surface that claims to extend the length of time between honing. $13 at JosephJoseph.com
Neet Cable
No More Knots
We’ve all been there. You get to the locker room at the gym pumped for your workout only to find your headphones in a wild, tangled mess at the bottom of your bag. This cable keeper is reinforced with a bendable wire to keep cords and headphones exactly how you wound them up when you left the office. A great stocking stuffer! $12 at NeetProducts.com

It’s a great way to experiment with unique, seasonal varieties and get more creative in the kitchen. Black radishes? Carnival squash? Rutabaga? Check, check, check!

Tea Kettle
Be Kind, Unwind
Sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than a soothing (and 0 PointsPlus value) cup of tea. Take a break with this gorgeous kettle from Le Crueset. It comes in four bold colors and is a chic addiction to any kitchen. Want to complete the experience with a set of loose-leaf teas? We love this one from Teavanna. $90 at QVC.com
Necklace
Everyday Elegance
When you look good, you feel great — that’s the idea behind giving this simulated pearl and smoky quartz beaded necklace to one of the ladies in your life. It’s perfect for dressing up jeans and a tee, or going glam with your LBD. $47 at QVC.com
Slippers
Fabulous Feet
We should all be lucky enough to get a foot massage after a long day. But these cozy slippers might be the next best thing. Their Orthaheel Technology supports and stabilizes the foot and may help relieve common foot problems like heel pain (plantar fasciitis). $69.95 at VionicShoes.com
