What do you get for the one who has everything? Surprise them with these awesome gifts

It’s never too early to get your holiday shopping out of the way. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally be that person who has all their shopping done before everyone else? You can do it! Then you can kick back and feel smug, watching others rush at the last minute.

Skip the ill-fitting sweaters and lame neckties. Nobody wants that stuff. Instead, give people on your list the gifts they didn’t know they needed.

These ideas are for the person in your life who has everything. You know the ones — if they want something, they buy it themselves. Jump on these gifts now and hide them away for Christmas.

iRobot Roomba 694

The holidays are a messy time for households, and keeping things clean during all the planning and celebrating is difficult. There’s someone on your list who could use a little help. Send in the robots!

The Roomba brand is synonymous with robot vacs for good reason. Kim has one and loves it.

The iRobot Roomba 694 works on carpets and hard floors, picking up dirt, dust, pet hair and other debris. This bot learns your cleaning habit and offers up custom cleaning schedules. The Roomba will suggest extra cleanings when the local pollen count is high, or your pet is shedding more than usual.

It runs for 90 minutes before automatically recharging. And the best part? Using voice control — “Alexa, tell Roomba to vacuum the kitchen.”

Skylety 17-piece cell phone cleaning kit

Your phone is one of the dirtiest things you own. Think about it — it goes everywhere with you, and your hands are constantly on it. Gross.

This 17-piece kit from Skylety includes 12 anti-static brushes to get into your phone’s ports, speakers and other tiny openings. If your phone is having trouble charging or sounds faint on speakerphone, there’s likely debris in those ports.

There are also two nylon brushes, two dusting films and a cleaning cloth to finish the job.

Taco vs. Burrito strategic card game

Adult-themed card games are all the rage, so it’s nice to see one that all can enjoy. Taco vs. Burrito is easy to learn but can be unpredictable. The gameplay runs 10-15 minutes and is optimal for two to four players.

The game raised nearly $25K on Kickstarter and was created by a seven-year-old. Imagine that!

Kikkerland solar-powered RainbowMaker

This window-mounted light catcher casts rainbows all around the room. It’s solar-powered, so you don’t have to waste an outlet or batteries that you would otherwise need for Christmas decorations.

It uses genuine Swarovski crystals to create a beautiful effect. Think of it as an upgraded disco ball.

Zulay milk frother

Komando Content Director Allie has this inexpensive frother, which turns your boring cup of coffee into a latte at home. It’ll save you money on those expensive drinks at the coffee shop!

The Zulay frother comes in dozens of colors and makes for an excellent stocking stuffer. It’s easy to clean and store and runs on two AA batteries.

Bug Bite Thing suction tool

Do you know the trick to stop bug bites from itching? Etch an “X” into the bite using your fingernail. This may provide temporary relief, but it’s not a long-term solution. Enter the Bug Bite Thing.

This fantastic little tool sucks the venom and saliva out of bug bites and stings. By removing the irritant, the body stops producing the reaction causing you to itch and swell. And it doesn’t use any creams or chemicals.

This is another great little stocking stuffer for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Lamicall cell phone stand

You may find yourself having more video calls as the holiday’s approach. The Lamicall cell phone stand lets you keep your hands free during these calls, but the uses are endless.

Use this stand when looking up recipes, taking selfies, watching videos or livestreaming. Put it on your nightstand and keep your phone within reach without having to pick it up.

The stand fits all phones, and you can keep yours charged while propping it up.

R-fun AirPods case cover

AirPods are a popular gift, but the included case is slippery and gets dirty quickly. One of these colorful covers is a no-brainer. They’re flexible and shock-resistant and provide a comfortable grip.

Each case comes with a handy metal carabiner clip to attach it to anything with a loop. Bonus points for getting a different color for everyone in the family.

PopSockets phone grip with expanding kickstand

Know someone who’s constantly dropping their phone? The PopSocket works with any smartphone to help them hold it steady. However, you don’t need to be clumsy to enjoy the benefits here. A better grip translates to better control when texting or browsing on your phone.

This phone grip frees up a hand and can even be used to prop up your phone. Stick it to any phone or phone case.

LARQ self-cleaning insulated water bottle

The athletes in your social circles know how important hydration is. This bottle keeps drinks warm or cold while eliminating 99% of bacteria at the touch of a button.

It uses a non-toxic mercury-free UV-C LED technology to sanitize water and clean the inner surfaces of the bottle by neutralizing bacteria such as E-coli. It activates every two hours to keep your bottle fresh and stink-free.

The USB rechargeable battery gives you self-cleaning power for up to a month on a full charge.
