Silk pillowcases may seem like a luxury reserved for royalty, but all of us should be taking advantage (ahem, luxuriating) in the deliciousness that is silk against skin. They also prevent bedhead, keeping your hair movie-star perfect while you rest.
Made from premium, 100-percent Mulberry silk, these super soft pillowcases—with a 4.5-star rating from a whopping 97,300+ reviewers—glide when in contact with skin and hair, rather than tugging or creasing. Sold in a pair, they feel incredible and look great on the bed. A super-luxe socking stuffer that doesn’t cost a fortune. In 23 colors and three sizes.
“Kept my hair PERFECT all night,” writes a five-star reviewer. “... I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors.”

So delicious!”

Resistant to dust mites, mold, and mildew, it’s great for people with allergies. And it actually will prevent breakouts better than other face mask fabrics. This one is available in baby blue, blush pink, black, and silver and has adjustable ear loops, a filter pocket, and a nose wire for a good custom fit.
“This is a super soft, silky mask!” says a reviewer from the front lines. “I work at a hospital and my skin has been suffering a lot from wearing scratchy hospital masks all day.

If you choose flat masks over conical or cup-shaped ones, you’re probably used to inhaling a mouthful of fabric, getting lipstick all over your mask (or just forgoing lipstick altogether), and having perpetually fogged up glasses. This is a universal problem, and we can be pretty sure folks on your gift list are experiencing it too. The solution (for you and for them) is here. Just place this flexible bracket over your mouth before putting on your mask; all the aforementioned woes disappear. You can get five brackets for 10 bucks, and drop one in each stocking. They’re made from food-grade material, and are washable—and, of course, reusable. “Great product,” writes a happy shopper. “I am very claustrophobic and wearing a mask is difficult if it touches my mouth. This mask bracket allowed me to breath easier with a mask on.” Also? It lets you wear lipstick again.

There are a lot of touch-screen gloves out there—and there’s a lot of frustration too. They can be bulky, hard to use, or just plain duds. These are superior. Lightweight yet thermal, they keep hands warm while enabling full connection.
“These are the best thin gloves I've ever had,” says one five-star fan. “I had these things in the snow, getting wet, cold, etc and my hands stayed warm. This is really unbelievable considering they are so lightweight, you really don't even notice they are on your hands. Unlike most gloves, you still have complete grip and control of all fingers, and the material that allows you to use your phone with finger and thumb is awesome. I will be buying these for everyone I know.”

These fun, wolverine-like claws—an Amazon’s Choice product—are essential for the grill master in your life. Or, honestly, anyone who cooks.
“A great set of shredders for the price,” writes a reviewer who replaced an old pair by another manufacturer with Bear Paws. “These Bear Paws are sharp, they shred meat easily and fit my hands very well. They're comfortable to hold, which is nice when shredding 10 to 20 pounds of pork for a party. I also use one claw when carving meat. I stick one claw into the meat to hold it steady while I carve with a knife, works much better than trying to use a fork...” They’re also great for mixing salads or lifting a turkey out of the roasting pan. A perfect stocking addition.
