Rechargeable Electric Lighter – $10.69 (regularly $16.99) 

Candles are a popular gift during the holidays so if you have a few to wrap up, be sure to add this innovative rechargeable lighter to really wow them! Charge it once and use it hundreds of times before needing to charge it again! Since it’s electric, you’ll be saving your giftee from ever needing to buy matches or the wasteful disposable lighter fluid ones again. The gift that keeps on giving! 🤩

“I love that it eliminates the need for matches or lighter fluid. Its sleek design makes it easy to display and keep track of, so you won’t lose it like those lighters that end up in the junk drawer. Plus, the rechargeable battery means you never have to worry about running out of fuel! I brought one to my friend’s house and she was ecstatic. We had so much fun lighting candles and she kept saying how amazing it was!” – Rachel, Hip sidekick

2. Rachel’s taco holders are going to be a game-changer for Taco Tuesdays.

Elevate your Taco Tuesdays with these taco shell holders! Once you grab these gifts under $20, you or your friend won’t even know how you lived without them! They’re the perfect size for traditional corn tortillas, shaping cheese shells, and allow you to pile on all your favorite toppings without them falling out or tipping over. Talk about a game-changer. 😏

Paired with some hot sauces, this would make the perfect gift for a foodie! 🎁

“I recently purchased these taco holders and tortilla shell pans on Amazon and they have quickly become some of my favorite kitchen tools. The holders are so convenient and make it easy to showcase and enjoy tacos without worrying about them spilling over. The pans are a game changer for making perfect tortilla shells every time. I love that both the holders and pans come in a set of four, so I can use them for both personal use and entertaining guests. Overall, I highly recommend these taco accessories to anyone who loves tacos as much as I do! They make a great gift for yourself or for your favorite taco enthusiast. They are durable, functional, and add a fun touch to any taco night.” – Rachel, Hip sidekick

“I ordered this necklace as a ‘dupe’ because I saw a similar one from a much more expensive jewelry shop. However, I feel like they were the ones who were duped because this necklace is AWESOME! The real thing. I can’t boast about it enough!

I can’t remember for the life of me what the shop was (it was over 2 years ago) but at the time I compared them, there was seriously no difference. The letters are spaced perfectly and they don’t dangle or fall in a weird way. While I don’t wear it in the shower or pool, I have worn it overnight while I sleep and it has never tarnished or broken. I am so happy with this sweet necklace and so glad I found this Amazon gem!” – Chelsey, Hip sidekick

Know someone who loves boiled eggs on their salad or ramen, or always shows up with a plate of delicious deviled eggs? This innovative machine takes up little room and cooks eggs EGG-tremely fast! 🤩 Your giftee will absolutely love the ease of using this machine and will get consistent results and easier-to-peel shells. Plus, with this machine they can also soft boil eggs, poached eggs, scramble them, and make individual omelets – all by the push of a button! 😱

“My family loves eggs, but we also like them cooked perfectly – I can’t do undercooked anything 😝 I was a bit skeptical of this rapid egg cooker, but after using it 3x already in the past week, I can say my expectations have been completely surpassed! And when hard boiling them, the shell really does peel off MUCH easier! This tiny but mighty small appliance has seriously saved me so much time in the kitchen 🙌🏼 And it really doesn’t take up very much space, you can’t beat it!” – Chelsey, Hip sidekick

5. Lina’s stunning copper bowl makes the perfect gift basket for any host gift.

Grab this copper bowl if you’re attending a party for the holidays and need the perfect host gift that’s sure to shine! While it’s a great gift on its own, we love how Lina took it one step further by pairing it with a festive kitchen towel, silicone spatula, and a baking mix to create the perfect gift basket.

6. Lina’s gift is perfect for any coffee lover who wants to whip up the perfect lattes at home.

It’s going to be the kitchen gadget your friend didn’t know they needed until they have it and it comes in many colors to perfectly suit their style. 🙌🏼 They’ll be enjoying lattes, cappuccinos, and hot cocoa like they’ve never had before thanks to your clever gift idea. 😉

Know someone with AirPods? A case is going to be a must-have if you know someone who already owns a pair or you’re gifting them this year. My son already has some AirPod Pros which he nearly lost a few times, so I grabbed this case which he can easily attach to his bookbag for school.

It comes with a carabiner, fits snuggly on the AirPod case, and even has an opening at the bottom which can be opened to charge or left closed when on the go.

9. Collin is gifting this fan which she said is perfect for any co-worker working in a hot office.

HOLMES Heritage 4-Inch Mini USB Desk Fan$16.46 (regularly $29.99)

Know someone who’s always hot at work? Yeah, we do too. 😏 Grab this mini portable fan to help cool them down! While Collin said she originally bought this fan to have a cute, yet portable white noise machine – it’s strictly just a working fan with little to no noise at all which makes it perfect for the office where little disruption is key.

Hip Tip: Are you looking for something with white noise? Our team loves this mini portable sound machine!

10. Collin grabbed these trendy slippers and they’d be an excellent teen gift too.

You can never go wrong with a new cozy pair of slippers! While Collin gifted a pair of these to herself, she said they’d make sure a fun teen gift too thanks to the trendy aesthetic. This open-toe faux fur slipper is soft as a cloud, has a waterproof, anti-slip sole, and comes in 15 different colors. Needless to say, we think your giftee will find themselves wearing them constantly just as Collin has been. 😍

    So funny! This post made me smile. I got two of the rechargeable lighters yesterday along with two wick trimmers to pair with a candle. And two of the taco holders to pair with a 5 star taco cookbook and a hot sauce sampler box. I am excited to gift these items!

    • Sara (Hip Sidekick)

      I love that, Julie!!! After writing this post, I also ordered the electric charger to gift with a candle at our family’s white elephant. 🥰 I hope your giftees love your fun gifts!

  2. Amy

    Love some of these but they are arriving after Christmas. Some as late as mid January.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the heads up, Amy! I just checked through and have updated a few of the ideas that select colors are still available for shipping by Christmas, such as the necklace and egg cooker – if you’d like to check back. The cord protectors do seem to be shipping in January still. Hoping this helps! 🥰

  3. Nee

    Thanks for these ideas! I’m definitely getting some!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! So glad you enjoyed the ideas on this post, Nee! 💖

  4. Lara

    All those fun ideas and my mind is stuck on why the glasses in the cabinet are upside down. Now I’m curious if that’s a better way than right side up. My mind immediately thinks of the rim of the glass that you put in your mouth touching the cabinet shelf but maybe I’m missing something?
