I am here to finally answer the age-old question, “What do you get the person who has everything?” It’s a toughie, but here’s the solution: Buy them a Boba Tea Lamp. YEP! Online retailer Smoko—aka a “gift, tech, wellness, and accessories brand”—is selling a truly adorable ambient light inspired by the milk-tea drink.
The lamp is currently available for preorder and has an estimated ship date between June 18 and June 23. So while, yes, you’ll have to be patient for its arrival, by preordering the product, you’ll score 30 percent off. It’s only $12, which isn’t even, like, that much more than a real boba tea.
After initially selling out six days ago, customers took to the comments section on Instagram to beg for Pearl’s—yes, it has a name—return. And Smoko listened. “If you’re a fan of milk tea, then this just might be the light you need,” it wrote on Facebook. “Whether you are navigating through the dark or just want a cute decor on your desk, Pearl is your best late-night companion. Comes with boba balls too!”
According to the site, the lamp measures 5 by 3 by 3 inches and will automatically shut off after an hour to save battery life. Although it’s on sale now, it’ll likely spike back up to $16 once the preorder period ends—if stock even lasts until then, that is.
Shake that milk tea.

Smoko also has a number of other ridiculously cute gift ideas. Although, FYI, I’m ordering Pearl for me, myself, and I. It’s got mugs, phone chargers, planters, and so much more. I’m also a pretty big fan of the Soup Dumpling Lamp.
