    1. A realistic moon-shaped light so you can ~finally~ read by the glow of moonlight. Isn't she a beaut?!

    Promising review: "I originally bought the 7-inch moon for my husband as an 'I love you to the moon and back' gift for our anniversary... Well, I loved his moon so much that I kept stealing it from our bedroom and taking it to the living room. So I bought myself the 5.9-inch moon to compare sizes and have one to call my own. As it turns out, the slightly smaller 5.9-inch one is just as amazing as the seven-inch. These moons charge up fast with a cord (with a cool 'blue moon' color when charging) and then once charged, they are completely free from cords or any connection dependence. They light up with a very detailed real moon surface design in white or yellow, and it will totally mesmerize you. You can literally 'hold the whole moon in your hand' and use it as a cordless and battery-free lamp, a nightlight, a lantern, or quasi-candle in the dark. The wood stand is sleek and super easy to assemble, and is a perfect accent to any room décor. These moons are the best gift for friends, family, co-workers, kids, pets, and spouses." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I use this little square in my Aeron-style office chair to make it more comfy and soft. I often wear shorts (it's OK, I work at home LOL) and like the soft texture versus the chair material on my legs. I try to rotate the furry square and shake it out daily since it's getting a LOT of use. I'll probably have to replace it in a year, but for this price, I don't mind!!! A+++++" —LAE

It fits perfectly with the grey/white color scheme I was going for and have received numerous compliments from both my friends and RAs when they've visited. I cannot stress enough how much of an 'aesthetic feel' it adds to my dorm." —jhsgf

    Promising review: "Considering the price, it’s pretty good. It's easy to install and it makes a boring wall more interesting. As others said, it’s not glass. Glass would probably be way more difficult to install for a similar effect though. This works just fine and only involves peeling and sticking." —Me

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    15. A Victorian decorative mirror that'll look gorgeous amidst a gallery wall. I purchased these and have them in my living room and they are *chef's kiss*. You can also utilize it as a gorgeous vanity tray for some of your fave beauty products and jewelry.

    I am in LOVE with these mirrors. I got them with the intention of putting them somewhere in my living room but once I was laying out my gallery wall I knew they had to be integrated in it somehow. I was so happy they offered it in two different sizes so you could pair them together because two of the same size would be overbearing. I think these would make a super cute addition to a bathroom as well to use as a vanity or jewelry tray!

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in two colors).

    16. A space night-light projector so your bedroom ceiling can be all sparkly, whimsical, and galactic.

    Promising review: "This product is a really nice gift for kids and even adults. The night lamp when lit in the dark room feels like you're out in the woods where there's no city glow and you're gazing at the stars. The quality of the pixel is really good (sharp images) and the images move around." —Rae Cai

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

It comes with durable matches and the back of the cloche has a stripe to light the match. Overall this product was worth it! I love it so much." —H**g

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95+ (available in four colors and two sizes).

    19. And (obvi), a custom Scent Lab candle so you know it'll feature a scent you love, AND that the vessel (which you also get to customize) will match the aesthetic of your home to a T.

Highly recommend these high quality, and stunning candles! They would also make an amazing gift!
