    Promising review: "I wanted to wait to review this product until I had the opportunity to use it for a small amount of time...and then I lapsed into the blissful ease of a perfect coffee experience every morning and it slipped my mind. If you are looking for a more durable and cheaper Chemex alternative, this is it. Not only is it suuuuper attractive on the counter, but it functions incredibly well. I give 5 stars all around." —Amanda Dougherty

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five sizes and styles).

    3. A mini cross-stitch kit for a quarantine 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.

    4. A 12-pack canister of blooming tea so you can have caffeine and an Insta-worthy show every morrow. Each flower can be reused up to three times for up to 20 cups of tea, which means you'll get a *whole* lotta pretty tea from just this one gift.

    reviewer photo of clear pitcher with blooming tea inside

    Promising review: "I am completely hooked on blooming/flowering teas. I was raised by British parents, so I grew up drinking English Breakfast Tea (which is still delicious), but I found that the milk and sugar I added to it were not always pleasing to my body later on. The flowering tea is extremely refreshing to drink at any time of day and each bloom provides up to three steeps. I usually just fish my bloom out of the teapot with some small tongs and then place it in a little container in the fridge." —Sarah Johnston

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    5. An electric S'mores maker to bring the great outdoors into the comfort of your own home. This unit comes equipped with two stainless-steel roasting forks and will get them a perfectly toasted marshmallow every single time.

    7. A travel-inspired Paint by Sticker book to unleash your inner artist (in a way that doesn't require expensive canvases, messy paint, and — no offense — real artistic skill). This book contains foolproof templates that let you recreate Art Deco portraits inspired by Venice, Monaco, Moscow, and more.

    Promising review: "I really enjoy this book series. I have purchased three so far, and each one is unique in it's own special way. It is very relaxing to simply peel and stick and see a colorful picture emerge before your eyes. The book is very sturdy, so you do not need anything hard to press down on (I often do it in my lap), and the pages (stickers and images) are all perforated, and very easy to remove. I've never had a page rip while tearing it out." —Rooney Belle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    8. A tiered hammock organizer so that you can *finally* get your remote controls in order. Say goodbye to searching between couch cushions and under pillows before proceeding to shake out your blanket, in which the remotes fall out and batteries get scattered everywhere. A true nightmare.

    reviewer photo of gray tiered hammock

    This is great to keep on a nightstand for all of your bedtime essentials!

    Promising review: "I got this because I have two remotes and two sets of glasses and I was putting them down and then not finding them easily. I had to train myself but now if I put one item down, it goes in the hammock. It doesn't take up too much room on my side table." —Seattle lady

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    9. Vinyl record coasters to keep your Ikea furniture protected in style. Music buffs, rejoice! Your coffee mug will be graced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Elton John, and The Beatles whenever you set it down.,

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. A Funko Pop! that I don't recommend keeping by your WFH setup. He may be funny to watch, but to actually work alongside Dwight Schrute? Absolutely not. I'd rather have Michael Scott for a boss.

    the Funko Pop

    Promising review: "Great for any one who loves the show. I ordered this with the gift wrap option and it was worth it! It came in a decorative gift baggie tied with a ribbon and a note attached to it. The material feels durable and top notch so your money is well spent." —Henry Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $11.50.

    11. Starface hydrocolloid pimple patches you should slap on a forming zit and et voila! They will a) prevent picking, b) speed up the fluid ~draining~ process, and c) stop bacteria from further inflaming that pesky spot. Talk about out of this world, eh?


    Promising review: "I have struggled with acne for most of my life and this is a great overnight fix. I had a cystic pimple that completely went down after a night with a star. While it was still a little red, inflammation went down greatly and it was no longer raised." —Kenna S.

    Get a pack of 32 from Starface for $14.99.

    Check out the Supergreat vids below for more info on the Starface pimple patches:

Just supply some apple juice and rent a warehouse because no doubt you'll want to open your own brewery after having a sip of the below — forget the $7 wine. You''ll be gifting handcrafted cider from now on.

    reviewer before and after photo of hard cider being made

    This kit comes with a reusable glass fermenter, three packets of yeast, vinyl tubing and a clamp, a racking cane and tip, a chambered airlock, three packets of cleanser, and a screw-cap stopper.

    Promising review: "Great little kit to get started home brewing wine and or cider. All you need to add is the juice and sugar. I brewed my first gallon of wine ever using this kit and made a delicious apple wine. I have now upgraded to six bottles and I keep five of them going at all times. Well worth the money. These make a great gift for somebody that likes to DIY or just a fun little hobby to work on. I regularly use this kit to make wine that tastes way better than the stuff I can buy at the store for a fraction of the cost." –Screant

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    13. A sloth stopper that does a surprisingly good job at protecting your vino. Don’t be fooled by its apparent laziness — it really pulls through when it comes to keeping that bottle of red fresh.

    Get it from LisaAngelLtd on Etsy for $6.76.

    14. Egyptology: Search for the Tomb of Osiris , a stunning book designed with illustrated graphs and "hidden" treasures — think a scrap of replica mummy cloth and a how-to guide on reading simply hieroglyphics.

    I have personally owned this book since middle school (cc: Scholastic Book Fair) and it remains one of my most prized possessions.

    Promising review: "One of the best purchases I've made in a while. My 8-year-old son hates reading but he can't put this book down. He loves the pull-out letters and all the envelopes with hidden maps. He loves the big red diamond on the front cover and he keeps telling me we need to plan a trip to Egypt so he can discover all kinds of treasure. This book has opened up his eyes to Egyptology and created a huge spark of interest in learning about other parts of the world." —bbb625

    Get it from Amazon for $16.01.

    15. An area rug perfect for anyone voted "most likely to spill their wine." Not only does this resist spills, but it's made from sustainably sourced eco-friendly fibers you can throw in the wash whenever it needs a good clean! That's right, folks. It's machine-washable.

    the multi-colored rug
    Rugs USA

    Get it from Rugs USA for $59+ (originally $100, available in four sizes).

    16. A retro hotel keychain inspired by your favorite fictional TV-and-movie locations — think The Grand Budapest Hotel, Shady Pines, Dragonfly Inn, and more. They even have a ~key~ to Bates Motel but 10/10 would avoid at all costs., Amazon

    Promising review: "Who doesn't love anything Twin Peaks? Looks exactly like the one Agent Dale Cooper used when he stayed at The Great Northern. Very nostalgic of the greatest TV series ever made." —lHicks

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 15 colors).

    17. Block heel booties that are truly love at first glance. Between the gorgeous brandy coloring and handcrafted quality and construction, I would gladly sign a marriage certificate decreeing a lifelong commitment to these beauties.

    Get it from PJ Candles Co Shop on Etsy for $7+ (available in three sizes and nine scents).

    19. Souper Cubes freezing trays to keep leftovers fresh and not taking up precious space in the fridge. These stackable silicone trays are an amazing way to store soups and sauces until they're ready to be consumed. / Via @soupercubes, / Via @soupercubes

    Each divider has four measurement lines, and the trays themselves come with clear lids that keep out odor and maintain freshness.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic. I live in Alaska and not-gross produce is something we only get in the summer time, so I make tons of veggie soup and tomato sauce all summer to get us through the winter. I heart the planet and was using glass containers, but they’re kind of a pain. THESE SOUPER CUBES ARE AMAZING! So far I’ve done ratatouille stew, tomato vegetable soup, and marinara. Not only are my cubes not stained, they work perfectly. I’ve been flash freezing two trays at a time in my deep freezer, transferring the cubes to a silicone freezer bag, and then freezing the next batch. I’ve had no issue with release or buckling, and the portion sizes are PERFECT. The only irritation I have is that the teenager keeps thawing the marinara and dipping *everything* in it and he’s totally hogging it. I think I have to hide the next batch at the neighbor’s." —Knitting in the last frontier

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two sizes).

    20. Stick-Um adhesive so genius, you'll wonder how *you* didn't think of it. Simply apply a pea-sized amount of product to any base and abracadabra, your candlesticks will remain upright! No more leaning toward one side. Get this just in time for spooky season.

    Promising review: "I have a candle holder that is slightly too large for 3/4 inch candles. Was dripping wax into openings but it builds up quickly. This stuff never hardens. It's great! Whoever came up with this idea should be rich by now." —Tracy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.75.

    21. Margarita glasses to elevate your ~at-home marg~ experience. It's simple: Keep this in the freezer until you're ready for some tequila and it'll keep your drink at the *perfect* temperature (goodbye, melted ice cubes and diluted drinks!), plus the silicone gripper means it's easy to hold.

    the glasses

    Promising review: "This is my third type of Host Freezing Glasses. I have a set of four wine glasses, four whiskey glasses, and two margarita glasses. These are great for the patio, taking on picnics, taking for beach vacation, or just keeping your drink cold for hours on a hot summer day! Host makes a quality product. I keep my glasses in the freezer all of the time....ready to go. Have never had a problem with any style of glass that I own. If you share one, you might never get it back. Everyone loves them." —R. Jones

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $17.85.

    22. A Lively "busty" bralette sung about on an eighth-grade class trip to Rome — in other words, it's what dreams are made of. This provides comfort, support, and is available in a ton of colors and designs.

    Psst, most reviewers recommend ordering a half size up!

    Promising review: "These shoes are phenomenal. The lacing holds tight so if I wear light socks, my foot doesn't shift. However, there's plenty of room to wear wool or fluffier socks. For me they DID NOT NEED BREAKING IN. This is huge. I hate buying any kind of shoe that has a "breaking in period". These were great from the get go. I tried them on a moderate five-mile hike on a rugged Washington (state) trail. No blisters. I put them to the test today (5/27/2018) on an eight-mile hike up a steep incline and holy cow. They were amazing." —Stevie

    25. A mini fabric steamer that scoffs in the face of deep wrinkles. Yes, I just pulled this button-down out of the hamper! No, I don't have anything else to wear! A quick run with this steamer (it heats up in 90 seconds flat) means a crisp blouse that looks as if it were just picked up from the cleaners.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am beyond thrilled with this little gizmo. It has worked wonders on everything in my closet from delicate chiffon and poly-blends, to heavier cotton and wool-blends. I have even steamed stubborn wrinkles from blazers and purses and linen. I considered purchasing a larger steamer, but they tend to be clumsy, heavy and difficult to maneuver. This steamer is perfect. And for frequent refills, I simply keep a pitcher of water nearby. For the price, you can't beat it." —Savvy Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    To learn more, check out "I’m Not Joking, This Mini Clothing Steamer Will Help You Be A Better Adult."

    26. A tinted multi-purpose salve to hydrate your pout, because the wind has returned and painfully dry lips have returned with it. This is available in several scents, but cheers to the newest limited-edition flavor: fig. It leaves behind a beautiful coral tint for just a flush of color.

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in nine colors).

    27. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey to take your taste buds on a all-expenses-paid adventure. This all-natural honey, chili pepper, and vinegar mixture add the perfect touch of spicy and sweet to any meal, aka so long bland and boring dinners that looked more appealing when the YouTube chef made it.


    This Paleo-friendly, gluten-free condiment is truly the cherry on top of any meal.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this! My entire family (with the exception of my husband, who doesn't like spice) reaches for this bottle of Mike's many times a week. We've tried it on biscuits, cornbread, fried chicken, bacon (AMAZING), and more. Mike's offers just the right kick of heat to balance the delicious sweetness of the honey. I plan on keeping this in my pantry." —MichiganTraveler

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    28. A pair of innovative leggings designed with a skirt, that way you’ll look as if you coordinated an outfit and intended to look fancy-ish; In reality, all you'll have done is shimmied into a pair of leggings.

    Get it from AllSaints for $60 (available in sizes XS-L and in two colors).

    29. A hard water stain-remover so that your faucets and glass doors can finally look squeaky clean. So long, days of staring at my gross shower head that still looks awful despite hours (upon hours) of scrubbing.

    It can also work on toilets, tiles, shower doors, really anything that's been affected by hard water!

    Promising review: "I’m impressed. I thought the container was small for the price, but a little bit goes a long way. It takes a lot for me to review, but this is worth it. Five years in the hardest calcium filled water and this is the first cleaner to remove it. I’ve tried scrubbing, only to scratch the surface. Every time I fill the water and ice at the fridge, I’m impressed by the result. I could see this working best, right at first." —Joshua N. Dufek

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98.

    30. Puma lace-up sneakers currently on sale, which is absolutely making my heart go pitter-patter. These beauties are the perfect upgrade for classic white kicks thanks to the iridescent detailing.

    Get them from Champs for $74.99 (originally $110, available in sizes 6.5-11 and in three colors).

    31. An adjustable hoodie to keep ~bat ears~ nice and warm. I would 10/10 purchase one for myself: the hoodie inner is made from a soft-to-the-touch jersey material (aka your flat-nosed pup won't overheat) while the outer material is a fluffy fleece.

    Promising review: "My husband said that out of all the ridiculous things I’ve bought our dog, that this is by far his favourite. Size 5 fit her perfectly and it’s so stinking cute! I’m so glad I found these because I always worried about her little ears getting cold in our harsh Alberta climate so this is perfect for those colder days." —Faith Beckett

    Get it from snorf industries on Etsy for $55.95 (available in several colors and sizes).

    Promising review: "I needed to buy four corkscrew wine bottle opener for my fellow wine-tasting pals and ran across these rainbow ones. The girls all loved them. They are well-made and beautiful to look at. Not at all run-of-the-mill. I recommend them as a unique gift for your wine-drinking friends!" —shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    34. An adhesive LED strip that increases color contrast and sharpness to enhance the images on your television screen — so yes, Netflix, I am very much still watching. Quit asking. I am enjoying this docu-series sans glare.

    reviewer photo of TV with glare before using the strips and without glare after using the strips

    Promising review: "You will be surprised how well this works. I thought it was a gimmick — but then read several articles about the benefits of bias lighting and though I would give it a try. Setting it up takes about five minutes — very simple. The surprise comes when you turn on the TV with the bias lighting and the picture POPS! The contrast and the black level jumps and the picture looks significantly improved!" —Rgd18

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in six sizes).

    35. A bottle of The Ordinary peeling solution packed with quality ingredients (think glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid) to remedy your biggest skincare concerns: acne and excess oil. The time to break up with breakouts has arrived, my friends. And for less than $8, to boot.

    37. A dual-part dish rack ideal for anyone with a ton of dishes, but limited counter space. This baby is extendable and folds in half when not in use. Simply ~expand~ it to its biggest setting when you have to set 97 dishes, 32 spoons, and 10,008 coffee mugs to dry.


    Promising review: "What a beautiful and clean concept!! I had looking for a dish rack with a 'clean look' for a whole and considered options three times more expensive. I am BEYOND happy with this rack. It beautiful, sturdy and clean. Also, water always drains out as intended and it's great in terms of space and storage." —Sandy

    Promising review: "These bats are so awesome! They are an excellent addition to our stairwell for Halloween this year. They are made out of a thin yet sturdy plastic that is shiny on one side and matte on the other (you can opt for either look, but I thought the adhesive would stick better to the matte side). They come with little adhesive tags that stick to our wall very well (we have untextured walls with latex paint). They also come in a variety of sizes and there are plenty in one order." —Britt
