    1. A beechwood board for making fresh, delicious gnocchi from the comfort of your kitchen. Simply knead dough into the ridges, designed to create the *perfect* shape for holding an optimal amount of sauce — reviewers swear preparation and cook time takes less than an hour from start to finish.

    2. A bottle of PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash, which screeches "get out" to pesky pimples thanks to a hefty helping of benzoyl peroxide — this bottle contains a whopping 10%, to be exact. Consider acne good as gone when placing this maximum strength formula in your medicine cabinet.

    3. A universal StopShroom so you can enjoy that so-pricey-it-hurts Lush bath bomb to the fullest knowing that your soak won't sneak back into the drain after *checks watch* three seconds. What's that I smell? Relaxation. And perhaps a hint of lavender.

    4. A Mielle Organics scalp oil formulated with rosemary mint to stimulate new growth. TLDR; Reviewers say incorporating this into their regimen two to three times per week helped thicken and lengthen strands.

    5. A Nooni whip maker that takes bland face wash and transforms it into a luxurious experience. "But how!?" By creating micro-bubbles for a rich, fluffy foam that promotes a more gentle cleanse.

    6. A wood polish lauded by one reviewer as the ~best money they've ever spent~. Trying your hand at furniture restoration has never been so easy: a few drops of this formula is powerful enough to cover even the most unsightly scratches.

    7. A Bestool detangler brush that's especially fantastic for 3a to 4c hair: it's designed with eight flexible combs that turns detangling wet *or* dry hair into a pain-free process. So long, tearing out strands in the name of more defined curls! We've just streamlines that process forever.

    8. A lil' polar bear hydrating eye stick for some sweet, sweet relief when you wake up with puffy, aching eyes. This formula is blended with niacinamide and Icelandic moss to help tighten skin and tackle dark circles so you look and feel more ~refreshed~.

    9. A mini cross-stitch kit for a hobby that *isn't* Netflix. This includes everything you need to start on one of four The Nightmare Before Christmas designs: a tiny 32-page book with instructions, three pieces of cotton cloth, an embroidery hoop, and embroidery thread.

    10. Miracle-Gro leaf shine for those who have recently found joy in plant culture. A spritz of this means shiny foliage with no spots, dullness, or dust.

    11. A pair of blind spot mirrors to increase your field of vision whilst attempting to squeeze into that teeny tiny parking spot. It's not ideal, but it's the first thing that's opened up after a half hour of circling around the same 10-block radius. Good luck.

    12. Affresh dishwasher-cleaning tablets because how can you get clean, glistening dishes if the dishwasher itself is *gag* covered in grime? Answer: You can't. These babies are here to help. Simply pop one in, put on the rinse cycle, and continue watching your show. Easy peasy.

    13. Silicone-free L’Oreal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar that makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous hydration and bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down.

    14. A jar of Hard as Hoof Nail Strengthening Cream, which uses calcium, vitamins, and hydrogenated jojoba oil to revive weakened nails — and not only does this promote quicker nail growth, but it also prevent chipping and hangnails. Messy at-home manicures just got *so* much better.

    15. A Neutrogena Hydro Boost body cream that reaps a ton of praise from ye old TikTok gods for being both hydrating and fast-absorbing. That's right, folks. No more waiting — *checks watch* — a half hour before slipping on your pajamas and crawling into bed.

    16. A set of colorful cable protectors because there is nothing more infuriating than frayed cables and I don't feel like that statement needs any more elaboration.

    17. A set of nonslip coasters to prevent drink condensation from pooling into every crevice of your cup holders; not to mention that crumbs will be as easy to remove as one, two, lift up the silicone, beat out said crumbs, and voila. No rogue French fry bits relaxing by your transmission.

    18. A colander strainer with a scoop design that allows it to nestle into your pot... and then stay put. No more oil splatters on your countertops thanks to unruly cooking utensils.

    19. A pack of vintage picture cards if TikTok has fueled your obsession with bullet journaling and/or scrapbooking. This under-$10 collection includes 45 retro ~paper dolls~ to zhuzh up any blank page.

    20. A 15-pack of retro popcorn boxes to transform your living room into a fancy vintage theater, one complete with plush velvet seats *and* all the Nicole Kidman previews your heart desires. If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of Coca-Cola being poured over a glass of ice.

    21. A high shine lip gloss that provides mega pigment for a professional finishing touch that would ~shine~ on any red carpet premiere. It's even got a light vanilla scent, has shea butter for moisture, *and* isn't sticky. No more panicking with every gust of wind.

    22. A waterproof phone pouch I'd like to put forth as a "vacation must-have" but really, I'm recommending this for clumsy folk. If you're going near a body of water, do yourself a favor and purchase this now. You're welcome.

    23. A Maybelline Cheek Heat blush, available in six gorgeous shades ranging from sunny corals to brownish nudes. Blush is tricky because just one swipe can result in an unnaturally Barbie pink cheek, which is where this gel-cream shines: it’s got a buildable formula that allows you to manipulate the color to be as subtle or as prominent as you want.

    24. A four-sided brush cleaner for when when it's time to finally break out the suede booties. This easily cleans away scuff marks and salt stains with little to no effort required, making it the perfect thing to have on hand for after you've gone apple picking. On a farm. Where there is quite a lot of dirt. The kind that will leave marks on your shoes.

    25. A Mrs. Meyer's multi-surface scrub capable of getting rid of grime with little elbow grease required. From scorched pans and crusty faucets to bathtubs in need of serious TLC, say hello to your new favorite cleaning product.

    26. A Handmade Heroes Sleeping Lip Mask that repairs your pout whilst you snooze. Its mango butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and jojoba oil blend will have you humming "Miracles Happen" from that iconic princess movie when you no longer wake up with painful dryness.

    27. A FlexiSnake millipede not meant for the faint of heart. Use this to easily de-clog every drain in your home, but prepare for the horror you'll experience as you dig up about one million pounds of hair and built-up gunk.

    28. A body brush that costs less than $7 and is designed with a stretchy handle to makes scrubbing a breeze. Before hopping in the tub, ~brush~ your body with the bristles below to promote lymphatic drainage and exfoliation.

    29. A calligraphy guide book for anyone looking to improve their penmanship and eventually create their own Etsy shop. These easy-to-follow instructions will turn doodles and scribbles into a work of legible art. Da Vinci? We (we in this context = me and my eyebrows) don't know him.

    30. A Pet House room-freshening spray or candle — because you love your pet but *boy oh boy* does their odor linger. Both products do a fantastic job at neutralizing any stench without irritating your doggo's nose in the process.
