    1. A pair of Vans sneakers that'll be way cooler than the basic black and white ones.

    Promising review: "My favorite pair of Vans. I have this style in different colors. I get so many compliments when wearing them, especially the traditional black/white ones. They are comfy and not to mention, you can even pair them with a sun dress." —VansGirl81

    Price: $32.96+ (available in two colors, sizes 6–10)

    2. A peplum T-shirt to create the ultimate casual outfit.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this shirt. I have it in black and black/white striped. It fits comfortably and comes down low enough on me that I can wear it with leggings. It is breathable making it comfortable to wear while it is hot outside. I cannot say enough good things about this shirt!" —DCgirl50n11

    Price: $39 (available in five colors, sizes XS–2XL)

    3. A lace cocktail dress because you still have a solid two months of wedding season left.

    Promising review: "This dress fit perfectly! I felt like it was made just for me. The color is exquisite (cobalt blue) and it made me feel like a million bucks! I would buy this dress in every color. The details on the dress really make it something special. Best dress I’ve ever purchased" —JasmineLew

    Price: $119 (available in six colors, sizes XS–L)

    4. A comfy robe that might make you want to toss your entire wardrobe. Who needs clothes?

    Promising review: "The BEST robe on the market. I asked for it for Christmas this past year and I cannot say one bad thing about it. I loved it so much I decided to buy one for my mom for her birthday and now she is hooked! The material is amazing, the length is perfect, and it stays tied really well which I've had problems with on other robes. I love it!" —CarlyANordstrom

    Price: $99 (available in 13 colors, sizes 1–4)

    5. A North Face backpack to be your trusty travel companion.

    Promising review: "The absolute best backpack I have ever owned. I take this everywhere with me, on my motorcycle, to work, to the gym, to the beach and everywhere I travel. It's been all over the world with me and has held up for about six or seven years now. It has really been beaten up by the sun, dragging it around, rain, sweat, blood, salt water, mud. It's been through it all. The only signs of wear is the water resistant lining is starting to peel off the edges of the secondary compartment, and the stash pocket elastic is stretched out. Also, there's some fading on the fabric from the sun. One of the buckle clips cracked on one side, but it's still functional! I would love to buy another one, but the one I have still works fantastically well. A+ bag. I love it." —KyAl

    Price: $99 (available in 10 colors)

    6. A pair of earrings that'll totally steal the show from the rest of your outfit.

    Promising review: "Love these earrings. They are lightweight which is important to me, I just cannot wear heavy earrings anymore. They are even prettier in person, the slight shimmer to them as the light shines through them is very pretty without being too much. —Jrzeegirl

    Price: $55

    7. A crocheted one-piece so sexy, it's basically lingerie you can wear in public.

    Promising review: "Great fit. I am a size 8 and ordered the M. I live in south Florida so I go to the beach and boating quite often. I highly recommend this! You will get lots and lots of compliments!" — LizzieDizzy

    Price: $124 (available in sizes M–XL)

    8. A baby stroller for rolling your baby through even the toughest of terrains.

    Promising review: "This stroller is the best! We bought the stroller and multiple accessories. Everyday I do about a six mile walk and this stroller is amazing in all weather. It even handles pretty well in solid, compact snowy sidewalks. I'd recommend this stroller to anyone." —Nicolle Michelle

    Price: $305.99 (available in three colors)

    9. A pair of aviator sunglasses that'll allow you to people watch without being caught.

    Promising review: "I saw these on a local fashion blogger page that I follow, and since I had been needing a new pair of sunnies, I decided to give the QUAY brand a try. Needless to say, they do not disappoint!! These sunnies fit perfectly and really complement my thin, but round shaped face. The black and gold accents make them great for just about any outfit combination. They work for me for my everyday sunglasses." —Kristinlascano

    Price: $55 (available in three colors)

    10. A lace overlay romper sure to make you want to have an impromptu photoshoot everywhere you go!

    Promising review: "This dress is absolutely perfect for any event in the summer heat. Wore this to an outdoor wedding in south Texas and it was so breathable. I felt so elegant with the long lace overlay, but loved that it didn't make me hot or hold in the heat. I definitely recommend this dress!" —lklyons2

    Price: $79 (available in four colors, sizes XS–2XL)

    11. A balance bike so your little one can practice balance and coordination before giving their big kid bike a try.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my grandson's second birthday last month. He loves it and rides it all the time. He is getting where he coasts more than walks. It’s super light — he can pick it up and carry it himself if he wants. My five-year-old granddaughter has used it too and it’s helped her learn to ride her bike. The seat and bars are easy to adjust so it’s easy for them to trade off. Very happy with it!" —Stacy

    Price: $119.99 (available in seven colors)

    12. A hydrating gel moisturizer to help boost your skin — taking it from dull and lackluster to a radiant glow!

    Promising review: "This product is perfect. It moisturizes just enough as I have combination to dry skin and it doesn't make my skin too hydrated or dry. Additionally, it doesn't irritate the skin. It feels so smooth and nice on my skin. It is one of my favorites and I can give all 5+ stars to this product. Highly recommended." —Sophio

    Price: $29.50

    13. A plush throw blanket that'll look perfect draped on the side of your bed to complete your Pinterest-worthy bedding decor.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite blanket ever. I loved it so much I bought it for my sister-in-law for Christmas, and both she and my brother-in-law were immediately fighting over it. I have mine in the blush pink color and have almost purchased another for myself on multiple occasions, it's only a matter of time before I cave." —LKDubb532

    Price: $39.50 (available in 20 colors)

    14. An SPF 15 lip tint because why sacrifice beauty for sun protection when you can get two in one??

    Promising review: "This is the BEST tinted lip treatment. It is so smooth, lasts a long time, and the color (I got Petal) is beautiful. After seeing so many bloggers loving this, I had to try it for my dry lips and I am so glad that I did. Highly recommend." —Jbraeutigam

    Price: $24 (available in 12 colors)

    15. A pair of moisture-wicking high-waisted leggings for getting your sweat on without getting sweat on your leggings.

    Promising review: "These are quality legging. The high-waisted band is super comfortable. The small fits great and I am 5’6” 135 lbs." —Aez0507

    Price: $54 (available in four colors, sizes XS-M)

    16. A pair of Sam Edelman flats you may want to buy in all six colors so you have a pair to go with practically everything in your closet!

    Promising review: "The nude Sam Edelman Pointy Flat is a go-to for the summer. You can look professional at work and you can elevate a casual outfit by wearing them. I got these last season and wore them to death. I live in Florida, so I wore them nearly everyday for a year. Seeing them available again was a thrill! Make sure you get your sizing right. They are extremely comfortable, but if you order too large of a size, they will flop and rub your heel uncomfortably. Once you get the right size, you are set." —Holly1224

    Price: $99.95 (available in six colors, sizes 5–12)

    17. A Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume with notes of bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks, and vanilla that will make you smell like an absolute dream!

    Promising review: "I’ve had this on my wishlist forever and finally decided to go for it. I couldn’t love this more! My fiancee and I went to Paris a year ago and this scent literally evokes the scent coming out of shops on the street. It is floral but not overpowering. Very rich and elegant. It is absolutely perfect and universally pleasing!" —AoifeMN

    Price: $100+ (available in three sizes)

    18. A jumpsuit that will have you jumping to the top of any "Best Dressed" list.

    Promising review: "I am totally happy with this jumpsuit. It is SO comfortable and can be dressed up or down. It is long but I'm tall and the length was perfect with low to high heels. The fabric and cut is terrific. The sizing is a bit on the generous size but worked for me!" —Sherstar

    Price: $98

    19. A straw hat to make any outfit look instantly more stylish.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this hat! It isn’t a one-size-fits-all, which is perfect because those never fit me. Materials are high-quality and it’s so cute. I love the color and the ribbon adds some extra flair. I get so many compliments on it! I bought two sizes and love the free return policy so it’s not a big deal finding the perfect size." —Nelrachelson

    Price: $44 (available in sizes XS–L)

    20. A water-resistant mini speaker for bumping tunes by the pool or beach.

    Promising review: "This is a great speaker, just what you'd expect for a Bose. I love mine so much I bought one for each of my adult children. We use on the deck by the pool, at the beach, camping, hotel rooms, office at work, all over the inside of the house. I'm actually purchasing another for a graduation gift." —Conn

    Price: $129 (available in four colors)

    21. A leather tote bag you can easily wear with any outfit, no matter how casual or dressy.

    Promising review: "I have searched high and low for the best nice looking tote on the market today and this is the one!! It is lightweight, very chic, and can hold everything you need. It has a professional but edgy look and is the perfect match to any look day or night." —totallythebest

    Price: $168 (available in three colors)
