    Get it from Amazon for $17.98 (available in 12 colors).

    2. A wine bottle vacuum pumper that removers air from your ~vino~ to preserve freshness for up to a week. Not that a bottle of wine would last a week in your house, but... / Via @vacuvin

    Just insert this wine vacuum into the bottle, pump until you hear a click noise, and that's it! Just add in a bottle stopper (this set comes with two!) to prevent air from getting in the bottle again.

    Promising review: "Wow! I have had this for about 5 months now and it works great! I drink red wine quite a bit and almost always leave a glass or two in the bottle. Prior to buying this, that glass or two is basically vinegar within one to two days (depending on the type of wine). If you have a half bottle or more remaining, this pump will keep that half bottle tasting like it was just opened." —Red

    Get it from Amazon for $15.45.

    3. A slow rising squish toy you'll want to keep handy at the office. Consider yourself prepared for the next "As per my last email..." situation.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    Get a set of 30 from Amazon for $7.64.

    5. A pizza box packed with four pairs of cotton socks that are *le deep sigh* not edible. They do, however, promise to make your feet look delicious., Amazon

    Promising review: "Purchased these as a gag gift for my son and his fiancé who were eloping. Their ceremony was taking place at a local pizzeria. Needless to say, these were a hit. The packaging and presentation were well-done and very witty! The socks were cute. My daughter-in-law immediately claimed the Hawaiian pizza socks. So fun!" —Mary F.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    6. A dainty friendship necklace encrypted with a super secret, super special message in Morse code. (SURPRISE! I'm a genius and have figured it out! The necklace says BFF.)


    Just kidding about the genius thing, obviously. I ~know~ that this says BFF because that's what it says on the gorgeous keepsake card that the necklace comes with!

    Promising review: "This necklace is dainty, delicate, and simple, but meaningful with the hidden message. Plus, it's a nice length!" —Eva Scalzo

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    7. A magnifying mirror that folds into a travel-friendly compact OR can be adjusted to stand upright. Plus, this is designed with LED lights to ensure bad lighting doesn't get in the way of your killing the makeup game.

    Promising review: "This mirror is just what I have been looking for! In fact, I just ordered another one for a gift and may order more. The mirror is sized perfectly for every day use and for travel (since it's so small when it folds flat). Both mirrors are high quality, the lighted portion is perfect for makeup application, and I like the fact that this mirror uses four 'AAA' batteries (which are included) because they are more readily available than button batteries." —Penny C. Tanquary

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "This card is perfect if you want a unique gift for your Beatlemaniac friend or family member. The photos don't do it justice. There's a great amount of detail in the cutouts that I didn't even expect! I'm keeping this in mind for future gifts, as well." —Robyn A. James

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    10. A cordless tabletop vacuum to gobble up all the tiny crumbs that have decided to take residence on your desk. This little piggy will be there to clean it all up!

    Promising review: "This is an adorable little vacuum I bought for my diaper bag! My son grinds his snacks into the carpet of his sister's dance studio (among other places), and I feel bad for the people who have to clean up after us. This is also good for quick cleaning the crumb-covered kids after a meal, benches, etc." —Heather A. Gunnerson

    Get it from Amazon for $11.59 (available in three colors).

    11. A mini essential oil diffuser that will turn your bedroom into an aromatherapy oasis. Add in a few drops of lavender, plug this puppy in, and get ready to relax.,

This diffuser has truly helped me feel less like I'm dying throughout the day. The air feels fresher and healthier, and I combine it with eucalyptus oil to odors and helps me feel refreshed. The perfect size for a small office." —Lucy H.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "This is hands-down the best shaving cream I have ever used. First of all, the smell and feel is incredible. Second, it lathers up incredibly. Finally, the fact that it's in a toothpaste-style tube is nice since you can squeeze out every drop, plus it's easier to travel with than an aerosol can." —M. Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $8.46.

    14. Crystal hair pins to add a touch of glitz and glam to your 'do. I won't outright say that Meghan Markle probably owns these, but...

    Promising review: "I used this product for the first time with my face oil and it’s safe to say that I am obsessed! I put it in the freezer for a couple of hours before using and it was so refreshing. I currently have a head cold and this jade roller really helped relieve some of the pressure in my sinus areas. I suffer sever migraines and am looking forward to seeing if the roller can help relieve some of that pressure as well! My favorite part is the smaller side — I love to use it under my eyes and on my temples." —Karlie Velvick

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

    19. A Himalayan salt night light that claims to purify and improve the air quality in your bedroom. Plus, if you're an adult and scared of the dark... this provides a pretty warm glow. No judgement.


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

    20. A wireless bluetooth speaker modeled after what your S/O REALLY wanted this holiday season. But, hey, at least the sound quality on this little puggerino provides a great consolation gift.


    Promising review: "This little guy is AMAZING! The sound quality is very clear and I can't believe how loud it can get. It's no bigger than a kiwi or a ping pong ball, so it's great for travel. It's so easy to use, too! Just charge it, sync it to any device compatible with Bluetooth, and turn it on." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six colors).

    22. A wall-mounted bottle opener for the new apartment renter who barely remembers to buy toilet paper. A beer bottle opener = one of those obvious things that they'll never really think to buy.

    Promising review: "Love this bottle opener! I kept misplacing the handheld one when I came across this. I mounted it on the back of one of my lower doors and that's it! Never have to search again." —Troy

    Promising review: "This is amazing! Who knew that such a simple product could help me with my seborrheic dermatitis? I was stressing out and wondering how I was going to manage my horrible dandruff, when I saw this nifty product and figured I’d give it a shot. So glad I did! I can use my normal shampoo/conditioner still, and my scalp is SO much better! So thankful to have found this!" —Jennifer Allenwood

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    24. Foldable flats perfect for that next black tie optional event. These portable shoes can be stashed in your bag, meaning you can slip these babies on when your four-inch heels become too much to bear.


    Promising review: "I purchased these ballet flats because I hate wearing heels, but sometimes occasions happen where you must wear them. At a recent black tie event, I hid these flats in my clutch. About 45 minutes in, I kicked the heels off my aching feet and put these on. I never took them off. Other women were jealous!" —Phyllis

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors).

    Promising review: "I was formerly a tea buyer, and have tasted hundreds of different teas from all over the world. Now I'm much more casual about it, but still like to have decent quality teas for daily consumption. On a whim I tried Vahdam, and I must say: wow! The tea punches above its weight, definitely. I don't think I've ever encountered anything so fresh, and their commitment to transparency in disclosing how their supply chain works is a real positive." —climberevan

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $19.99.

    27. Template stencils to turn your latte into a full-blown work of art. I'm not outright SAYING that you should create a ~coffee art~ Instagram now, but...

    Promising review: "These are every bit as good as mats from high-end cookware stores, but at a fraction of the cost. I used them over the weekend to make macarons (notoriously fussy cookies) and they work great. No burnt bottoms and very even baking. Cleanup was also really, really easy, just a quick wipe with a sponge!" —Lucy H.
