Part of the fun of Christmas is SHOPPING!
Whether your giftee is obsessed with pasta, butter or the upcoming royal wedding, we have something for everyone -- starting at just $7 -- as featured on the “Rachael Ray” show or chosen by our editors!
So gear up and get scrolling!
(And if you pick up something for yourself in the process, we certainly won’t judge.)
1. Sunny Andersons Infladium ($20, PartyCity.com)
The gift that will keep on giving -- all the way to the end of football season! The inflatable dinner buffet is designed to look like a stadium (hence “infladium”), and for Sunny, it’s filling a serious void. "Listen, I came up with this because I want one!" says Sunny. (We all do, girl, we all do!)
2. "The Emoji Movie" ($15, Target.com)
Not only is the animated film adorable, Rach has a cameo in it — as "Pam" Spam! "All of my life I wanted to be a cartoon, because I have such a ridiculous voice," Rach jokes. "I finally got to be one, [and] it was a dream come true."
3. Editors' Pick: Delicacies Al Dente Sterling Silver Farfalle Necklace ($85, Delicaciesjewelry.com)
Our editors can NOT get enough of this whole collection of pasta-inspired jewelry, but our favorite charm may be the farfalle, as it's bow-shaped by nature. Too cute!
4. GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment ($24, Sephora.com)
We love this cult favorite of the popular beauty brand, which makes your skin feel tingly -- and extra exfoliated. (And yes, we’d like to believe it makes us look a little younger, too!)
5. Cuisinart Smart Stick 2 Speed Hand Blender ($35, Macys.com)
Rachael loves a good hand blender. "It's so dangerous — especially this time of year when you're making tons of soups — to transfer hot, boiling liquid from your dutch oven to the blender or the food processor, and then put it back in,” she says. Which is why we love the Cuisinart Smart Stick 2 Speed Hand Blender. It comes with you to whatever bowl you need to go to, making it a safe pick!
6. Lush Shampoo and Conditioner Bars ($11-$18, Lush.com)
One of the most common reasons people get held up at security is that they forget about the 3.4-ounce liquid regulations for carry-ons, and end up having to throw out their toiletries. “Shampoo and conditioner bars (like this cinnamon-scented winner by Lush) are great because they look like soap,” says New York-based American Airlines flight attendant Stella Lozano. “This way you don’t have to worry about following the liquid restrictions of the airline or worry about shampoo spilling in your luggage.”
7. Editors’ Pick: Simply Vera Vera Wang Velvet Burnout Top ($15 on sale, Kohls.com)
Who can resist a velvet ensemble? (Certainly not Rach!) The luxe fabric always feels festive, making it an especially fitting holiday gift. (Pick up a second for yourself and consider your holiday party outfit COMPLETE.)
8. Paww WaveSound 3 Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones ($100, Amazon.com)
If there are kids crying, or people talking, these will be your best friend. You can listen to music or a movie, or just put them on and go to sleep. Stella showed off the Paww WaveSound 3 Bluetooth Headphones, which fold for easy storing and come with an auxiliary cable for airplane movie-viewing, on the show.
9. Editors' Pick: High5Dogs CLIC Leash ($79, High5Dogs.com)
Morning coffee runners with dogs, rejoice! With the CLIC leash, you can take your pup for a walk and tether her wherever you need to — with JUST ONE HAND. The other can carry that cup of Joe, grab a phone or just stay warm in the other pocket. (With temps dipping, definitely crucial!)
10. Chef'n Buttercup Butter Maker ($15, Chefn.com)
Just in time for the holiday, America's Test Kitchen co-founder and Milk Street author Chris Kimball came by to make us a DELISH pumpkin pie tart — seriously, Rach said the smell ALONE made the argument for "smellovision" — and while he was here, he dished on three of his favorite, new dessert-making gadgets, too. You can use this to churn your own butter! "You can put herbs in it, spices, so you can add flavor!" says Chris.
11. Editors' Pick: MDOUGHW Holiday Just Doughies ($93 for 24, mdoughw.com)
These treat-filled cookie cups are both delicious and unique — and they're decked out for the holidays! With flavors like Christmas (and Hanukkah!) brownie with vanilla icing and holiday double chocolate peppermint, you can't go wrong.
12. Tovolo Precision Pie Crust Cutter ($10, Surlatable.com)
As co-host, Jesse Palmer noted while test-driving this (another one of Chris’ favorite gadgets to help you whip up desserts), it creates a perfect circle for your pie or tart crust!
13. Editors' Pick: Francesca's Jingle Bell Salt Pepper Shaker ($15, Francescas.com)
Ring-a-ding-ding! These jingle bell salt and pepper shakers make great stocking stuffers or hostess gifts (considering the latter can pop it right out on her table!). Plus, those mixed metallics will complement any table — and they're on-trend!
14. Bialetti Cold Brew Coffee Maker (Plus, Moka Express and Grinder) ($30, Bialetti.com)
If you have a friend or family member who gets coffee out every single day, you can save them a lot of money — about $80 a month, says "Ramsey Show" host and budgeting guru Dave Ramsey! — gifting them one of these! Bonus: Hot, steaming caffeine without the barista line!
15. Rachael Ray Stainless Steel Multi-Grater With Silicone Handles ($23, Walmart.com)
Another one of Chris' favorite gadgets is Rachael's very own grater. It's super-sturdy, made of metal and wide enough that that you can set it over a hot pan or a bowl and grate directly into your food as you go.
16. Sphynx 3 in 1 Portable Razor ($14.99, ShopSphynx.com)
With a compartment for water, a shea butter bar and TWO back-up razor blades all built into one compact plastic shell, the Sphynx aims to make it easier for women to get a great shave. So, does it work? Well, Marie Claire Senior Fashion Editor Zanna Roberts Rassi calls it "genius!"
17. Hatchimals Surprise ($65, Target.com)
On average, parents plan to spend $330 on each child. Whoa! To cut back, perhaps only buy one hot new toy per kid (like the trendy Hatchimals Surprise, a drone or portable speaker) instead of 5 or 6 or 7 each.

18. Editors' Pick: Three Cheers for Corgis Corgi Cookie Cutter ($7, Etsy.com)
If you love all things royal — including the upcoming royal wedding! — then we think you'll appreciate this corgi-shaped cookie cutter. Each carves a 5-inch corgi cookie fit for a queen (or even a future duchess!).
19. Pudus Classics Red Lumberjack Plaid Slipper Socks ($25, Ilovemypudus.com)
These uber-plush socks made the list of Oprah's Favorite Things for 2017, and Gayle, who showed them all off to us, said you can expect her and Oprah to be wearing them Christmas morning. (She also said to look out for a pic!)
20. Old Navy "Stay White" Skinny Jeans ($44.99, Old Navy)
These jeans are coated with a spray that’s supposed to repel stains -- and Zanna poured orange juice, coffee AND wine on her pair to find out if they're the real deal. Verdict? Let's just say she was stunned by the results!
21. Ecobee4 Wi-Fi Thermostat ($249, Ecobee.com)
This was Dave’s third pick -- and Rach loves it, too! "We have one of these — it is amazing," she says. "This saves you money, and your house is always exactly the temperature you want it by the time you get home." After all, who doesn't love coming home to a comfy home?
22. Editors' Pick: Boska Holland Cheese Curler Friends Oak ($80, Boska.com)
Two words: cheese curler. Two more: chocolate curler! This two-in-one gadget gets you perfect, little feathery curlicues of two of life's best edible items. The giftee can garnish a meal with them — or, you know, make the curls the meal itself. (Hey, it's the holidays — indulge!)
23. Whoopi Xmas Family 2 Holiday Sweater ($89, Zappos.com)
As Whoopi explained of her latest roundup of tongue-in-cheek Christmas sweaters (including one of baby Jesus that reads, "Mom and Dad went to an Inn and all I got was this manger), "For me, unless they make you laugh, it’s not worth it." We couldn't agree more, Whoopi!
24. Roku Streaming Stick+ ($70, Roku.com)
Whether you want to access your favorite streaming service, rent a movie or binge a series, you can do it all with this baby! "Plug it in — boom," says Dave. "You can find the movies easier, you get better deals on the movies [and] deals on the shows." Rach has one and says she loves it, too!
25. Editors’ Picks: Hyper Pearl: Compact Mirror + USB Battery Pack ($30, Hypershop.com)
The one gift everyone could always use more of? Battery life! And with this adorable, compact-inspired backup charger, you not only get the extra juice, you also get a mirror, too — AND it lights up!
26. Phillips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Toothbrush ($200, Target.com)
Another one of Oprah's Favorite Things, this will come in handy after eating all of those sugar-filled holiday treats! And it connects to an app to help you keep track of your teeth-brushing habits. Score!
27. Editors’ Picks: Give Lovely Snow Way Box ($90, Givelovely.com)
Give Lovely’s holiday boxes are chock FULL of cozy and adorable items, from snowman ring dishes to stemless champagne flutes to scented candles. And most have a sweet treat in them to boot! If you can’t decide what to get someone, this will give them a little bit of everything -- and all kinds of awesomeness.
28. Rothy's The Point Flats ($145, Rothys.com)
These flats -- which are made out of recycled water bottles, Zanna says -- can actually be thrown into the washing machine if they need more than a spot clean! And there are EIGHTEEN different colors and patterns to choose from.
