    1. A large slate cheese board to help you show off your meat, cheese, and crudité arrangement skills at every party you host.

    The 12"x16" slate board includes four knives and chalk.

    Promising review: "I love this slate cheese board. The soap stone chalk pencil is precise and better than regular chalk because it does not leave dust or rub off until you are ready to wipe it off. The stainless steel serving knives have a sturdy sleek design. Unlike some utensils with handles that eventually loosen or break off, these are one piece and easy to clean. It has slip-proof rubber feet that keep it in place. I was very impressed at the quality and value of this product. It looked very impressive this past Christmas with my different cheeses, meats, fruit, and wine pairings." —Vera

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    2. A sleek 10-piece ceramic cookware set so you can replace the one you're currently using — which hasn't been looking its best for a couple years now.


    The set comes with a 9.5" fry pan, a 2-quart saucepan with lid, an 11" grill pan, a 3-quart saucepan with lid, a 4-quart jumbo cooker with lid and helper handle, a 6-quart Dutch oven with lid, and a recipe booklet. The nonstick ceramic pans are PFOA- and PTFE-free (so they're eco-friendly!). The cookware is suitable for all cooking surfaces as well as the oven and are dishwasher-safe.

    3. An asymmetric long velvet blazer that will instantly make you feel fancier as soon as you put it on.


    Promising review: "The jacket is super cute on, and it is very comfortable. It's very dramatic and works with skinny jeans, leggings, and can even accessorize a dressier outfit. As others suggested, it could use a button to pull it together, and if you sew, that is any easy DIY fix. I'm going to buy a frog closure to sew on." —Joan V

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    4. A candle to remind you that there really is no place like home.


    The all-natural soy wax candle has a 60- to 80-hour burn time and is made in the USA.

    Promising review: "I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell but I figured even if he wasn't a fan it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home. I don't know how they did it, but Homesick Candles managed to replicate the smell of home so well in this candle that it took my boyfriend back home immediately. Definitely worth my money. :)" —Bailey K

    Get it from Amazon (available in all 50 states).

    5. A countertop greenhouse so you can have fresh herbs all year round with minimal effort on your part.

I've worn these boots nearly every day for the past two seasons and they have held up very well. The boot is also offered in a wide width, which is perfect for me since I often have trouble finding cute boots that also fit my feet!" —AEN11

    Get them from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in sizes 4-13 and in black and brown).

    7. A set of ceramic planters you'll be so glad you pricked to help display your succulents in a more interesting way.


    Promising review: "Finally! Cute attractive and complimentary planters that DON'T leak all over the table. I love these so much I bought another set for my daughter in law. TIP: Rinse off some aquarium gravel and put in the planter about 1.5 inches deep. Then use some heavy-duty landscape fabric on top of that. Measure fabric by drawing around the pot with permanent marker. Be careful to not touch the pot and mark it up. Add your soil and plant. Now your roots won't get soggy. These planters are so beautiful. I feel calm when I look at them." —Janie Palmer

    The silk does not absorb moisture, and is said to help reduce hair breakage and loss as well as protect your face from sleep lines and aid it in maintaining hydration.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my new lavender slip pillow case! I can definitely tell the difference in the way I sleep. I love that when I straighten my hair, I see major improvements with zero frizz and my face feels clean and fresh when I wake up. I loved it so much I ended up buying a second one and I even have the eye mask. It’s such a nice treat and feels so luxurious! Sleep is so important and anything that will enhance that experience is a major win!" —KatieInCali

    12. A velvet V-neck cami you can wear with a leather jacket to every holiday party and still look festive when you inevitably get hot.


    Promising review: "Absolutely incredible value for this super-soft cami! The velvet stretch is perfect for a looser fit. Surprisingly very well-made, I've seen versions of this camisole at Nordstrom for over $30! I am petite (5'1", 32D) and purchased a large because I want more stretch in the bust area. Although it was a bit too large, so I am going to purchase more colors in a medium. Such a good price — I'm stocking up now!" —Julie K.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 12 colors).

    The moisture-wicking wool-fabric allows the skin to breathe naturally, so your feet will always be a comfortable temperature. The shoes are also washable and fuzzy to the touch.

    Promising review: "I put the Freestep through a major test. I have problematic feet, and I bought these shoes on a whim for a trip to NYC. I walked over 10 miles in them. I was shocked because I didn't have to break them in! I've never written a review, but these shoes are definitely worthy. The fit is true to size, and they go with almost any outfit! If you're on the fence, get them." —Freestep

    16. A ruffle peplum blouse you can wear to work or for a night out and feel like a damn star.,

    Promising review: "After reading reviews, I decided to give the shirt a try. BEST PURCHASE I COULD HAVE MADE!!! I've learned when buying online to always buy a size bigger so that you can ensure that the clothing fits properly. I typically wear a L but purchased an XL, and it fit perfectly. I will definitely be purchasing more clothing from this seller in the near future." —Amazon Customer

The glasswork is very nice with crisp etching, and the ship is more detailed and attractive than the pictures show. I’m very happy with this. I’ll be using it as both a show piece and service set." —G.F.F.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.95.

    18. A Kitchen-Aid mixer because you've been eyeing one for years and this is your sign that it's time to finally bite the bullet.


    Promising review: "I had always wanted this mixer. I used the hand mixer for years and was pleased. However, there is NOTHING better or even equal to this mixer. It is very heavy since the body of the mixer is cast iron, but that makes this mixer sturdier. I know that it won't be going anywhere. I love the smoothness of the action of the mixer and the simplicity of its use. It is very quiet, so one can converse with someone while it's running without having to yell. And the colors it comes in should satisfy everyone. It will fit into every kitchen. I'm in mixer heaven!" —Mathlady

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful, sheer but color-rich kimono-style cover-up. I'm a jeans girl most days, and this brings so much style to my everyday look. I saw someone else selling similar styles for much more, but this is beautiful and so affordable. IT'S DEFECT-FREE WITH BEAUTIFUL STITCHING. I purchased four in different designs." —Lintuf

    Promising review: "After previously buying a cheaper French press that lasted about three uses, I bought this one by Bodum, the inventor of this coffee prep method. This is quality. I decided to try the French press method after being a paper filter user. I learned that the paper traps the coffee oils that give it aroma and taste." —St Pete Mermaid

    Promising review: "I love this caddy tray. It took a while for me to review. I needed to test it out a few times. Royal Craft Wood really had taken the time to construct this product for consumers. I did not know that the soap dish and small tray were removable/interchangeable. It's very convenient for additional space or storing elsewhere in the tub. The product comes with strips to place where you desire to prevent the wood from scratching your porcelain tub. Did I say I love it?!" —Lahina_1821

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97.

    Promising review: ""The redness on my cheeks has gone way down and I have a much more even complexion after just four days. I've been lightly spraying this on my face after cleansing with the Mario Badescu Rice Milk Carnation Cleanser and again first thing upon waking. It smells very nice and magically fixes skin problems — even my acne has cleared up! I'm very impressed." —Terryoke

    Promising review: "This little thing is legit. Pumps out mad sound at full blast. I will say that battery dies faster at full blast, but you can leave it plugged in while playing, and honestly, you can't beat having a party speaker in your pocket." —D. Salcedo
