    34 Products To Make You Smile In The New Year

    In case you're worried about 2021 being another total dumpster fire, these products will add a bit of joy to get your new year started.

    1. A cute little vacuum to help you clean up tiny messes (that unfortunately doesn't include 2020, although we'd love to vacuum that mess up).

    2. A plant person enamel pin since there's no better way to showcase your affinity for herbology than with a trendy pin. #ProudPlantParentHere

    3. A small air plant and planter shaped like some of your favorite characters that'll be the perfect addition to your windowsill. I own Chewbacca and I'm so obsessed with it.

    4. A package of bath noodles if you've always dreamt of bathing in your favorite food — ramen. These feature essential oils and natural exfoliants to smooth skin *but please, do not try to munch on them...*

    5. An incredibly competitive game of One Night Ultimate Werewolf you can enjoy with roommates and family who love a good board game. This is just like the game mafia and it gets pretty heated *so beware.* I've had many laughs with my friends due to this game.

    6. A kitten ear headband for keeping your hair out of your face while you apply your nightly skincare routine. You won't have to worry about your hair getting stuck in your clay mask anymore (and c'mon — it's sooooo cute).

    7. A Fro Friends notebook for writing down all of your manifestations for the new year. My first one "start cooking more and stop ordering DoorDash."

    8. A Star Wars -inspired keychain of everyone's fave jedi and droid — Rey and BB-8. Pop this on your keys for an ~outta this galaxy~ reminder of your fave fictional place...Tattooine.

    9. A Poopsie Pooey Puitton slime kit because nothing says fun like some designer gooeyness. I hate to say it, but this purse is cute... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    10. A sloth ring holder since everyone needs a safe place that'll keep them from losing their prized jewelry items. I just can't handle the cuteness.

    11. A taco toaster tool that'll fit perfectly into your toaster for making your own shells for taco Tuesday. Who's bringing the guac?

    12. A roll-up chess and checkers set in case you want to practice your gaming skills so you can prep for your potential match against Beth Harmon from The Queen's Gambit.

    13. A set of aesthetically pleasing planner stickers so you can start 2021 on the right foot and be an organized icon.

    14. A La Croix cross stitch kit if you want to pick up a new hobby this year. And what better way to start than by designing a cross-stitch of your fave bubbly bevvy?

    15. A heart-eye emoji waffle maker because breakfast is the most important meal of the day and therefore, an emoji waffle is the perfect way to start it.

    16. A heatable plushie friend in case you need something to ease your cramps or tummy aches. Whoever said plushies aren't for adults was seriously disturbed...

    17. A royal statue in case you've been binge-watching The Crown all quarantine and want to commemorate the occasion. I will be placing this on my dresser in honor of her royal highness — Claire Foy.

    18. A Jac Vanek sweater that is so accurate and will show off your self-deprecating humor. If this isn't me — I don't know what is.

    19. An Alder New York Hydro Facial Mist if you get joy from aesthetically pleasing skincare products that look pretty on your vanity and also work wonders for your skin.

    20. A Baby Yoda night-light if your room is in some desperate need of ~galactic glow~ in the wee hours of the night. When in doubt, Baby Yoda will always be there to *light* the way.

    21. A pair of handmade clay earrings inspired by the Muses from Hercules that are a subtle and sophisticated ode to a Disney classic.

    22. A Hello Kitty water dispenser for fulfilling your H2O intake goals but in the most kawaii way possible.

    23. A set of Rock Grace Mocktails that are supercharged with crystal energy if you're a crystal buff yourself. This is a great option if you're trying to cut back on the alcohol in 2021 but still want to enjoy a mocktail every one in a while.

    24. A Touchland hand sanitizer that's so sleek you'll actually get joy out of spritzing it on your hands for a hydrating clean. My entire family swears by these and we are major fans.

    25. A CONQUERing that displays an affirming message when spun. This sleek ring will take the place of your fidget spinner so whenever you need a quick thing to focus on (such as when you get a hint of anxiety) take the ring off and give it a spin.

    26. An Audrey Hepburn enamel pin if your go-to classic movies include Breakfast At Tiffany's and Roman Holiday. She'd look absolutely fab on a denim jacket or displayed on a backpack.

    27. A custom rainbow patch you can get embroidered with your name, pet's name, or favorite word of the year. If it were up to me, I'd go with "Joe Jonas," but I may be biased ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

    28. A pair of cow socks to wear with all of your winter boots that are truly "legen-dairy."

    29. A set of LED photo clip string lights to add a touch of character to your bedroom walls with mementos that get you in your ~feels~.

    30. A miniature ghost in a bottle you can keep displayed on your desk so it's spooky all year round. Don't worry this little guy will keep you company during all your dreaded Zoom work calls.

    32. A Peter Pan Funko Pop! in honor of the Disneyland 65th anniversary and a classic Fantasyland ride that may or may not be my most beloved attraction. Keep him on display in your home for some much needed magic.

    33. A Beetlejuice Broadway coffin ring made from the pre-Broadway stage so you can keep some of the theatre magic living on forever in your jewelry collection.

    34. And a set of fuzzy slippers that are like walking on clouds and are also super on trend. Start 2021 on the right foot...pun intended.

    2021 is about to be real cute....
