This one is for the bookworms. If your friend always has a book in their hand, and always gives out author recommendations this kit will come in handy. It can help them keep track of the books they’ve lent out. That way, when they realize a book is missing from their personal library and want it back, they will know how to track it down.

Mekabre Loa Voodoo Doll

This is a gag gift but definitely a funny gift for any friend or family member. Yep, a Voodoo Doll. While this doll is kind of cute, the spells it can cast on your worst enemies are anything but cute. I mean, if you believe in that kind of stuff…

Reusable water bottles have been around for quite some time, but the Hydro Flask has changed the game. It’s well-insulated, easy to grip, plastic-free, and offers options for size and color. Eco-friendly people probably have this already, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give them another one…or gift it to someone who needs to become eco-friendly…

Artist Apron

Your artistic friends can use this apron to store their paints, brushes, and palettes while they’re hard at work.
