About this Deal
It's hard to believe the holidays are approaching, meaning once again, it's time to show your loved ones (and your coworkers and third-cousins) how much they mean to you. I think we can all admit that gift buying can be tough. Everyone has different interests and you don’t want to feel too generic.
That’s where the shopping experts at Reviewed come in. We’ve spent the entire year testing products to see what's actually worth the money, covering everything from vacuums to reusable straws. Not only that, but we've closely monitored shopping trends, as well, and have great insight on what gifts are going to be the most popular this season. From streaming subscriptions to Apple AirPods to cast iron skillets, these are the 30 gifts everyone will be asking for this year, according to our product experts.
1. Roku Streaming Stick+
Roku's Streaming Stick+ has long been a top value pick, where streaming devices go.
Best gifts of 2020: Roku Streaming Stick+
REVIEWED / TJ DONEGAN
Alongside a subscription to Disney+, your giftee is going to want a way to watch it on the small screen (alongside Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Max). The Roku Streaming Stick+ is the best affordable streaming device we’ve ever tested and will allow them to binge-watch their favorite shows on their TV instead of their computer screen. It’s fast and offers full 4K and HDR for the ultimate binge watching experience. It's the second best thing to getting them a new smart TV with Roku built-in.
Get the Roku Streaming Stick+ at Amazon for $49.99
2. Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
Best gifts for boyfriends 2019: Lodge Skillet
Best gifts of 2020: Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
Anyone who's getting into cooking lately will surely appreciate a cast iron skillet. Why? Well, they're the cookware that can do it all. You can use them on the stovetop, in the oven, on the grill—you can even use it to cook over a campfire. Plus, they create a sear that seriously upgrades whatever you're making. Lodge makes our favorite affordable cast iron skillet. It's only $20 but will last for years to come.

3. Disney+ Subscription
Gift a subscription to a popular streaming service, like Disney+.
Best gifts of 2020: Disney+ Subscription.
Shiny, new Disney+ was last year’s hottest streaming service and the obsession with it has not slowed down. With new movie and TV show offerings like Hamilton and the live-action Mulan, there's always a reason to want Disney+. Plus, with access to pretty much every Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel movie, it’ll surely bring a smile to anyone’s face. You can give a one-year subscription for your recipient and Disney+ will email instructions on how to redeem it to your loved one on the day you choose. Also, don't forget a streaming stick (our favorite is the Roku Streaming Stick+), so they can watch Disney on the small screen.

4. Apple AirPods Pro
These upgraded AirPods are just that good.
Best gifts of 2020: Apple AirPods Pro.
REVIEWED / JACKSON RUCKAR
Last year, Apple AirPods were probably the most coveted products of the holiday season, but this year the upgraded AirPods Pro will be all the rage. They earned our pick as the best truly wireless earphones because Apple somehow managed to make the already amazing AirPods even better. They’ve been fitted with better sound, have incredible noise-cancellation, and are finally water-resistant. What more could your giftee want?
For a less expensive option, you can still gift the original AirPods, which we find to be a good option, just at a lower tier.
Get the Apple AirPods Pro at Amazon for $199

5. Barefoot Dreams Blanket
Best gifts of 2020: Barefoot Dreams Blanket.
As we spend more and more time inside as the weather chills, everyone is going to want a throw blanket to cozy up with. The Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket is possibly the most coveted one on the market with even celebrities like Chrissy Teigen, The Kardashians, and Selena Gomez raving about them. They'll be hard to find in select colors (like the popular animal print), so if you want to get it for someone, act sooner than later.
Get the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket at Nordstrom for $147
6. Airomé Serenity Medium Diffuser
The sweet smells of relaxation.
Best gifts of 2020: Airomé Serenity Medium Diffuser.
REVIEWED / BETSEY GOLDWASSER
These days we're all looking for new ways to relax and unwind, which is why an aromatherapy diffuser is a great gift for 2020. The Airomé Serenity Medium Diffuser is the best essential oil diffuser we’ve ever tested because not only is it stunning to look at, but we also found it to be easy to operate and clean. It also provides an even scent for up to six hours and is available in several designs to suit your giftee’s decor style.

7. Always Pan
One pan for everything.
Best gifts of 2020: Always Pan.
REVIEWED / VALERIE LI STACK
Cooking is honestly pretty overwhelming these days. There are so many gadgets to choose from and too many pots and pans to wash that sometimes it’s just easier to order take out. But the Always Pan from Our Place claims to replace eight pieces of cookware and can do everything from sautéing, frying, boiling pasta, and so much more. After testing it, our cooking expert loved how versatile it was as well as how absolutely gorgeous it looked with its terracotta finish and Instagrammable vibe.
