    1. A pendant necklace available in all 50 states. So hypothetically, if Dorothy was your most current flame, you'd want to pick up the Kansas option.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98+ (available in all 50 states).

    2. A ruffled one-shoulder dress featuring a thigh-high slit for legs that feel like playing a subtle game of peek-a-boo. This is perfectly form-fitting without feeling too "I'm uncomfortable and my boss is here" revealing.

    amazon.com

    Reviewers suggest going a size up in this dress!

    Promising review: "This dress is perfection. It has just the right amount of drama for you to look fabulous. Gorgeous!" —Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $24+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in nine colors).

    3. A floral pullover sweater for folks who are ready to break the ground. Miranda Priestly, care to comment?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a couple of these and love them! They are perfectly lightweight for California winters. They wash well (I hang dry them) and I do suggest ordering one size up. I have this shirt as a gift for a few people and everyone loved them!" –Sunny

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

    4. Classic ballerina flats that inspire their wearers to randomly burst out into "Swan Lake" choreography.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The more that you wear these shoes, the more comfy they become! I can walk around in them all day, and I get a ton of compliments on them. I usually feel frumpy wearing flats, but that's certainly not the case with these — I just ordered the beige color, and I might get the leopard print. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE SHOES!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $8.51+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 25 colors).

    5. A choker necklace so inexpensive, you'll be buying it for every nice person on your list. HECK! It's affordable enough to purchase for all of the naughty people on your list, as well.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.69 (available in two colors).

    6. A gold hardware backpack to make your traffic-ridden, the-NYC-subway-system-sucks commute seem at least a ~smidge~ more chic.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm in college living off campus. I hated carrying a huge backpack everyday, so I ordered this one — lots of pockets for wallet, phone, keys, makeup, chargers, whatever you'd normally carry in a purse.Not to mention it's cute! I was absolutely GUSHING when I got it out of the box." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in 12 colors).

    7. High-waisted leggings that are comparable to products from pricier brands, but are significantly more affordable. Praise be.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off of Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and love their Align pants, but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. These remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. But this isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft, and it pills and gets caught on everything. These have light compression, give a nice booty lift, and are not see-through...even when squatting. I love love love these and am going to order several more! I actually kind of want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on leggings in the past when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost. If you're a Lulu lover, you should really give these a chance!" —Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $15.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 44 colors).

    8. An off-the-shoulder bodycon dress with the words "birthday party club attire" written all over it. In invisible ink. Nicholas Cage, where art thou?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wow. I can’t believe how inexpensive this is for what you get! The fabric is thick enough to not worry about everyone seeing your bum, the cut is long enough to do a little ruching and still have it almost down to my knees, and the fit is perfect in the shoulders. I'm so excited about this LBD score!" —Montana Jill

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    9. Leather sneakers guaranteed to become your go-to shoe of choice. Pair these babies with jeans, leggings, skirt, dresses, CULOTTES — they'll go with absolutely anything.

    instagram.com

    Get it from Puma for $75 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in two colors).

    10. A pearl-studded sweater perfect for mornings when you've rolled out of bed super late, looking like a mess, and SURPRISE! You need to be at work in ten minutes.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-5X and in seven colors).

    11. A locket necklace that lets you diffuse essential oils wherever you may go. This locket contains felt pads — just add a drop of lavender and you'll be feeling calm, cool, and collected all day long.

    Amazon

    This necklace comes with three felt pads you can take out (or keep in) for however long you want. Pro tip: Use each pad to hold a different essential oil.

    Promising review: "Love this locket! I wrap it around twice so that it turns into a short necklace (and so that I can smell the essential oils even more). The felt holds the aroma for days if you use a good oil, the locket hasn't opened up on me yet, and chain is plenty strong. A great bang for your buck!" —smallfryvet

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three colors).

    12. A cowl neck slip dress you'll probably want to keep for yourself. 'Tis the season of giving, so why not give to yourself? Right? RIGHT!?

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in sizes XS-XL and in five colors).

    13. A minimalist card wallet for the dad who has had the same wallet for the past three decades and refuses to get a new one... even though it's falling apart.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really love this wallet. I was replacing a worn out traditional folding wallet, which my cards fell out of and was too bulky. I looked at few different ones on here and went with this one. It’s awesome! Slips into my front pocket, it’s lightweight, holds all my cards, and is well made." —D. Swan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 28 colors).

    14. A clothing subscription box for the pickiest pint-sized dresser in your life. Just take a ~style~ quiz to determine the kind of outfit your kiddo would love and an entire outfit will be sent to your doorstep, hassle-free. And yes, shoes are included!

    Kidpik

    Kidpik is available in one-, two-, or three-month intervals, and includes seven (QUALITY) items in sizes four through sixteen. Each box initially costs $95, meaning each piece included rounds out to approximately $13.50 — which, if you've ever gone shopping at a children's store, is a pretty fantastic deal.

    Get it from H&M for $24.99 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    18. Cat eye sunglasses you'll want to throw on when you've just left the house wearing a wrinkled tee and probably dirty leggings. Will these pull together your look and make it seem grunge chic? Absolutely.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore these shades. They have such a rich, sophisticated, and classy look. Extremely sturdy construction, with a good weight to them and trendy. The packaging was great, the magnetic case, insert and dust cloth make you think you paid $100+, but yet I only paid so much less than that." —Msjayyb

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress fit perfectly! The fabric is soft and flexible and I feel confident and comfortable wearing it. This is going to be perfect for one of the dinners on my upcoming cruise. For those of you who struggle finding clothes that fit large busts, this dress qualifies. I am a 44DDD and usually find clothes that fit everywhere but the bust." —S. Walls

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was skeptical because of the great price and didn't expect much, but I was so happy to be wrong! It's a beautiful locket. Solid weight, tight clasp, shiny, and big enough to see the photos inside. (I put a picture on both sides of the inside.)" —EM Gray

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 17 colors).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Really beautiful earrings! They look expensive and not gaudy by any means. I have been considering spending $500 on a pair of different studs, but now I’m not sure they're worth the money. You can get the same look with these earrings for so much less!" —Lauren Carter
