Delicate letter necklace, Blake LivelyNothing says love like jewelry. But it doesn't have to be anything fancy or wrapped in a robin's egg blue box. Los Angeles-based designer Maya Brenner has the loveliest necklaces in her collection and for Blake Lively and her and Ryan Reynolds' family of soon-to-be five, a 14K gold (white, yellow or rose, your choice) with the first initials of all their names would make for a great gift. Points for Ryan!

Manly pineapple socks, Justin TimberlakeIf you happened to see Jessica Biel take on Jimmy Fallon in the Best Friends Challenge on The Tonight Show, they fought to see who knew Justin Timberlake best.

Classic suede bag, John LegendYears ago, Chrissy Teigen revealed that she gives John Legend a suede bag every year, one that he looks forward to "because he uses it every single day for that year," and he's never not looking forward to getting that bag. So here's another one; this time a simple, classy weekender from the Tom Ford Buckley line. The black leather straps and handles, the gold hardware, that luxe suede. John will adore it. And use it for more than a year.
Suede Buckley Weekender, $3,950
Expert culinary training, Chrissy TeigenIf you follow Chrissy Teigen on social media or perused the cookbooks online, then you know she loves to cook. You might also know she has a ton of celebrity chef heroes out there including Ina Garten and Christina Tosi. Now, if John Legend could use his sway, maybe throw his EGOT status around, then perhaps he could swing cooking lessons with one of her idols. While that experience would be priceless, Nella Cucina in Toronto offers up famous chefs to host your next culinary event. Chefs Susur Lee, Massimo Capra, David Adjey and Christine Cushing are among those offered.

Singing machine fit for a diva, Jennifer LawrenceAfter their epic night out at an NYC drag bar, it's clear that the only thing Jennifer Lawrence needs in her life is a karaoke machine — complete with disco lights and its very own microphone. And the only one who deserves to give her that gift is her pal, Adele.
Bluetooth Karaoke System, $100

Dream playhouse, Khloe KardashianOK, technically this is a gift for Khloe Kardashian's daughter, True, but Scott Disick has already given his sister-in-law/bestie a backyard makeover. So instead, he can recreate the extravagant play space he made for his three kids and do something similar for Khloe and True. Now, the average person isn't ready to shell out $100,000 for a playhouse but this one is a reasonable option.

Bittersweet pet memorial, Sophie TurnerAfter Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas' dog, Waldo Picasso, died in the summer, the couple got matching tattoos to honour their late pooch. As another way to memorialize Waldo, Jonas could get this personalized river rock honouring Porky Basquiat's younger pup bro as a reminder for he and Turner.
Personalized Pet Memorial Stone on Natural River Rock, $65 and up
Fifty Shades of Conscious Uncoupling, Chris MartinGwyneth Paltrow isn't the most relatable celeb so her gift-giving skills may be a little off. Which is why the Fifty Shades trilogy — Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed — would be something we could see Goop giving ex-husband Chris Martin. The books — which inspired the movies in which his current girlfriend, Dakota Johnson, stars — may seem like a gag gift but Paltrow's face would be dead serious. At least it's the books, not the movies.
Fifty Shades Trilogy, $43

Curtains up, Dax ShepardHere's what you need to know: Dax Shepard hosts a podcast out of the attic above his garage. There's a bathroom there that doesn't have a door. When guest Ashton Kutcher was on the show, his wife Mila Kunis joined him and the lack of privacy didn't stop her from using it. A baller move, sure, but Dax's wife, Kristen Bell, might want to remedy that. She doesn't need to call in a handyman but, rather, what about some decorative door beads to give a hint of concealment? At the very least, it kinda-sorta separates the spaces.
Curtain with Beads Room Divider, $14
A modern red dress, Tori SpellingInstead of the iconic red dress Donna Martin wore to the spring dance on Beverly Hills, 90210, back in the day (which was later stolen by real-life portrayers Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth in the 90210 reboot), what if Garth just got her BFF a dress that she can actually wear now. Without shame?
Lace Dress, $99
Just more cute dresses under $100. You're welcome.
No scrubs? Yes, scrubs!, Donald FaisonMatching scrubs from Zach Braff to his former Scrubs co-star, Donald Faison. Obviously.

Girlfriend getaway, Cameron DiazThese two are more than happy to post bare-faced, makeup and filter-free selfies and a great way to embrace that BFF love and au naturel life is a weekend trip.

Fall Escape Package at Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain, $259+ per person (based on double occupancy)
You get a can opener, Oprah WinfreyWhat do you get the person who literally has everything? Well, Gayle King confessed she and best friend Oprah Winfrey have decided to get the other absolutely nothing going forward. But before that, King did reveal the best gift she ever got Opes was — drumroll, please — an electric can opener. So how about a manual one where they can at least flex their muscles a bit.

Microphone check, Kanye WestKanye West may get wife Kim Kardashian all kinds of gifts (sometimes 150 at a time), but what does she get him? Considering Kanye is still working on new music, instead of leaving their house for the studio, a condenser microphone delivers detailed, clear recordings and can be used at home is ideal.
Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, $127

A subtle yet useful journal, Will SmithWill Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith recently confronted Will's relationship with alcohol and while he didn't admit to having a problem, it's clear that Jada believed otherwise. While gifting her husband with a sober journal seems a little snarky gift, there are those who are overcoming addiction and need help in their recovery that this would be ideal for.
The Sober Journal, $87
The Smiths and other celebrity couples who prove their love stands the test of time.
An introduction to social media class, Jennifer AnistonIt's no secret Jennifer Aniston isn't a fan of social media. The actress only recently joined (and broke) Instagram. While she seems to have no trouble navigating these social media waters, a good gift for that entrepreneurial-minded friend may be an online class to Instagram Marketing for 2020.

Grill it up, Hailey BieberJustin Bieber sported an exquisite diamond grill on his wedding day to Hailey Bieber, and while she added a diamond-encrusted chevron wedding band to her ring finger, Mr. Biebs might soon want to get one for his second-time-around bride. Starter grillz, a standard six-tooth gold front, are fairly inexpensive but that's not what Justin will be getting Hailey, no, ma'am. Throw in diamonds and it could be at least $30,000.
8 Piece Open Face Grill, $160 and up. Way up.
Justin and Hailey may hope their marriage to each other is the only marriage but these celebs are making their second ones last.
