    Including birthday cake peanut spreads, cotton tees for the SVU lover, a cushion foundation that costs less than your lunch, and more! Much more!

Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A wet n wild cushion foundation with a buildable, water-based gel formula. Want full coverage sans the feeling of having ten pounds of product on your face? Then this compact will become your holy grail. / Via @wetnwildbeauty,

    This concealer also comes with an attached sponge applicator, meaning you can stash it in your bag for touch-ups without having to worry about carrying around a makeup brush.

    Promising review: "I am a makeup snob. I have stupidly high standards for cosmetic performance, and drugstore brands have let me down every single time I've given them a shot. So when I graduated from Covergirl to Sephora after college, I never looked back. My kit is full of Dior and YSL foundation, Armani concealer, Benefit brighteners, etc. But this thing is truly great.The sponge applicator is better than you think. Firstly, it's antimicrobial, so you don't have to worry about the hygiene aspect. Secondly, its ability to blend the product is outstanding. The concealer itself doubles as a highlighter, it looks good without primer, and it lasts so much longer than you'd expect." β€”Sarita

    Get it from Amazon for $7.12 (available in 12 shades).

    2. An LED ring light that lets you bid adieu to crappy lightning that no amount of editing can fix. Just clip this onto your cell and voilΓ ! Your selfie game will be at least 17x stronger.

    This has three levels of adjustable brightness, meaning it's perfect for whatever kind of natural lighting you have β€” whether you're in broad daylight or at some swanky nightclub.

    Promising review: "The difference in my photos with this is amazing! I absolutely love it, and so thrilled that I bought it. It's light weight, easy to carry, easy to use, and makes your selfies look amazing. Like you have professional lighting!" β€”Sherri Meyer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98 (available in four colors).

    3. A Hair Dance dry shampoo because the grease in your roots indicates you were too tired to shampoo this AM. Ditch your aerosol can for this powder formula instead β€” it is that much better at absorbing oil and adding volume.

    This vegan and cruelty-free dry shampoo doesn't contain any talc, parabens, or baking soda (hooray). Plus, it won't leave any chalky white residue in your hair and is great for any color 'do!

    A personal note: As someone with thin, greasy, flat hair, I can confidently say that powder dry shampoos are so much better than aerosol ones. Like, they actually make your hair look freshly-washed.

    Promising review: "My hair is ALWAYS oily at the roots and aerosol cans of dry shampoo make my hair stiff, but this stuff...this stuff is amazing! Adds volume, doesn't completely dry out my hair, and does not leave residue or build- up (I have black hair so this is very important). Also, my hair smells super fresh after using it. Would give more stars if I could!" β€”Gabriela

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    4. An antimicrobial silicone scrubber that will banish the filth lurking in your kitchen sink...mold and mildew. Unlike the sponge you're currently using to wash off your dinner, this peach-scented option *isn't* a breeding ground for bacteria.

    Each scrubber keeps mold and mildew away for at least three months, meaning you'll have to replace these babies significantly less than you would a regular sponge.

    Promising review: "I love these as an alternative to other sponges. Except for the faint scent they come with (which fades over time), they don't smell at all. You can tell that the soap is completely out once you're done washing the dishes, unlike wth a regular sponge. I don't worry about mildew, mold, or gross bacteria hiding in the nooks and crannies. I've used three in about six months and I definitely could have stretched them longer." β€”M

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    5. A travel wallet so that you don't hold the entire baggage checkin line up because you can't find your passport. With this handy dandy accessory, everything will be in one neat place (including your annoying boarding pass).


    This is designed with a passport slot and five card slots, a removable wristlet, a cellphone pouch, AND a pen holder β€” all while remaining slim enough to store in your tiny carry-on purse.

    Promising review: "Honestly, this is the perfect travel wallet. It fits both of my passports, my phone, a pen, and some cash. I bought it in a bright red color that meant I could find it right away, and the strap is also useful." β€”Suman S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 24 colors).

    6. A gluten-free, high-protein peanut spread available in flavors such as chocolate maple pretzel, birthday cake (*drool*), and cookie dough. Add it to toast or it eat it straight from the container β€” I will personally be doing the latter.


    I personally eat the mocha cappuccino flavor every morning and OH MY HEAVENS, I've never known such deliciousness.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing!! I got the chocolate maple pretzel flavor and the pretzel pieces stay really crunchy, and the maple flavor is outstanding. It's great with apples and bananas, but it's also wonderful just by itself. It really satisfies my sweet cravings. Will definitely buy again and I'm excited to try the other flavors." β€”Asoeung

    Get it from Amazon for $11.39 (available in 14 flavors).

    7. The first book in the A Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin. Perhaps you've heard of it? No?


    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    8. Decal stickers for a custom manicure you’ll be admiring for the next week. β€œThanks, I did these myself.” -you telling everyone, even though they didn't ask and most certainly do not care.

    This decal sheet comes with ALL kinds of stickers ranging from roses and butterflies to hearts and birds.

    Promising review: "The decals lay smooth on your nails, last several days, and last even longer when you use a top coat over them. They're quick and easy to use and make my manicure look professional. Worth the money!" β€”elizabeth Griffin

    Get a sheet of 50 decals from Amazon for $7.59.

    9. An Oxo sink strainer that prevents food from falling down (and eventually clogging) your drain. The silicone basket even flips inside out so that you can easily dispose of all the accumulated ramen you ate for dinner.


    This durable strainer is also designed with a twistable stopper, making it easy to fill your sink with water when you need to hand wash dishes.

    Promising review: "This is the best sink strainer ever. I feel like a loser for writing a review on this,, but it truly is amazing. While I wish I had a garbage disposal, this is the next best thing. Those stupid hard metal strainers you have to bang on the trash can to get the food particles out are the worst, and the trapped stuff never really comes out! But with this, you just turn it inside out and everything slides right out. AMAZING." β€”Carly M.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. Basic hoop earrings here to prove that love at first sight does exist. Romeo and Juliet, I finally understand where you were coming from.

    Promising review: "My favorite earrings! Great quality and I don't have to be afraid of losing them since they're so affordable. I've had them for a few months now and I wear them often without any discoloration on my ears." β€”Mom

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 14 colors).

    11. A lightweight cotton tee for any SVU fan whose heart soars when they hear that dramatic "DUN DUN". Olivia Benson, you are my HERO.


    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in five colors).

    12. A shaker set sure to make an ~egg-cellent~ addition to your home. You'll never have to scramble to find your salt and pepper because they'll be right there, displayed proudly on your kitchen table.


    Promising review: "These are so cute! They look exactly like eggs sitting on my counter. Three people have already thought they were real eggs!" β€”Sweetles

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    13. A halter top featuring a gorgeous open-back you'll wear all πŸ‘ spring πŸ‘ long πŸ‘. It also doesn't hurt that it's 75% off....

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $19.95 (originally $88, available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors).

    14. Reusable stainless steel straws currently on a mission to save the environment, one less one-use plastic straw at a time. They're also available in a gold color that looks so fancy, it kind of hurts.


    These food-grade, dishwasher-safe straws also come with two cleaning brushes to ensure that no gunk gets trapped inside.

    Promising review: "How could you not like these? They are not only great for the environment, but they are durable and fit easily in your purse so you can take them out and use them at a restaurant. They are also super easy to clean and make fantastic gifts." β€”gwenda perez

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $10.35 (available in three colors).

    15. A Nivea intensive cream capable of ~duping~ you into thinking it's a much more expensive brand (alas, it is actually affordable). This rich formula melts into your skin and is the perfect overnight treatment for anyone with dry, patchy skin.

    Promising review: "I was under the impression that cremes like Nivea are extremely oily and sticky. But dude, I love this. I was in Philadelphia and it was really cold there, so my skin ended up getting extremely dry. I stayed with a friend who had this, and I tried it out because I couldn't find any other moisturizer​ in her bathroom. And boy oh boy, my skin was rejuvenated after just one use. Like, I am not kidding β€” my skin immediately felt super hydrated and moisturized, almost like the moisture had reached to the deepest of layers my face! The immediate effect is slightly sticky, but just give it some time to absorb. Please give it a try, you won't regret it." β€”A. K. Singh

    Get it from Amazon for $7.12.

    16. A personalized pet portrait that is the most thoughtful present you can give. It also only takes about two days to receive: submit a photo, add a pet name, and that's it. You'll receive a printable digital illustration sure to inspire a few happy tears.


    Get it from gisart print on Etsy for $6.

    17. A Maybelline highlighting stick that is the makeup equivalent of an entire pot of coffee. Just a few swipes on your cheekbones, cupid's bow, brow bone, and inner corner of your eyes will make the 🌎 of a difference.


    Adding highlight to those specific areas will catch the light and give off a natural glow, turning every hour into golden hour on your skin.

    Promising review: "I am no pro at applying makeup, and I'm a big fan of this product for that very reason. Within fifteen seconds of swiping this across my eyelids and cheekbones, I have a slightly more polished, glowing look. I received a compliment on this highlighter and that's impressive because, like I said, I am pretty unsophisticated when it comes to makeup." β€”E. E. Malinovsky

    Get it from Amazon for $7.54 (available in two shades).

    18. Listerine tablets that work harder than Hades to keep onion breath at bay ( small feat). These chewable tablets transform to a minty fresh liquid for a "just brushed" feeling that lasts up to four hours!

    These tablets are also sugar- and alcohol-free, meaning they won't leave any weird after tastes in your mouth (like most mints tend to do).

    Promising review: "This is the perfect replacement for gum and is packed with a punch! It is much more convenient than traveling with mouthwash in my bag during the day. I can easily use this at the gym, at work, before dinner with friends... I've found them to be such a lifesaver! The directions are just chew, swish, and swallow." β€”PinkPower12

    Get a pack of 56 from Amazon for $12.99.

    19. A cropped racerback tank available in 45 colors you'll want to stock up on, STAT. Choosing just one might be difficult, so I suggest simply purchasing all 45.


    Psst, reviewers suggest ordering a size up!

    Promising review: "I now have this top in three colors β€” titanium, pink, and charcoal. I can’t say enough good things about it! So comfy, fits great, and it's awesome to work out in. plus it looks great. Definitely plan on getting it in even more colors!" β€”Clara Everett

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in 45 colors).

    20. A SkinFood strawberry mask that smells divine enough to eat (although it is ~NOT~ edible). If you're looking for a complexion that shines bright despite lack of sleep, you'll want to add this to your skincare routine ASAP.

    This scrub is packed with black sugar, strawberry seeds, and strawberry seed oil that work to exfoliate your skin and turn it into the perfect makeup canvas. Want to skip makeup all together today? No worries! This grainy mask has an immediate brightening effect that'll make it look like you *actually* got your beauty sleep last night.

    Promising review: "I usually use this in the mornings right after washing my face because it leaves my skin so soft and gives it a really nice glow. My makeup also applies a lot smoother as well, my skin absorbs my moisturizer way better than before, and my acne scars are now gone and it’s only been a little over two weeks since I bought it. This gave my skin the perfect boost." β€”Allisone

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    Check out one BuzzFeeder's review of this SkinFood strawberry mask.

    21. A woven trench coat you can throw on over any outfit because April weather is usually unpredictable and very often CHILLY. I present to you this olive jacket, which is the chicest way to stay warm.


    Get it from Forever21 for $27.90 (available in sizes 0X-3X and four colors).

    22. Iris Apfel: Accidental Icon, a vibrant and colorful book written by the ninety-six-year-old fashion icon. Get ready for little specks of wisdom alongside gorgeous illustrations. (Iris, if you ever read this, I love you.)


    Promising review: "This is a stunning book! I loved every picture, page, and word. Iris Apfel has outdone herself once again. This is a must-have." β€”Tracie H.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.79.

    23. A beverage cooler that might just save a life and that is not me being dramatic. This can take a cup of hot coffee and chill it by 130Β° in less than 60 seconds β€” without diluting the flavor in the process. / Via @thehyperchiller

    Promising review: "This product is a must-have for iced coffee lovers on a budget. Using this avoids the sour flavor of cooling coffee, so it definitely replaced my trips going to a cafe and ordering coffee. I calculated how much I spend on coffee in a cafe vs. using this machine. Overall, a year of buying coffee outside would cost me $1,200-1,3000, which is a huge number. Using this with ground coffee from the super market reduces the spending to less than $100, which is a a huge save!" β€”Chris

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    24. Layered choker necklaces perfect for both daily wear and adding some subtle spice to your usual ensemble of black, black, and dark black.


    Get a set of four from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four styles).

    25. Bluetooth headphones comparable to ones from much pricier brands (and come on, we can't afford those). These beauties are water-resistant, noise-cancelling, have a battery life of eight hours (when charged for two), and the bass sound? STRONG.


    Promising review: "I mainly purchased this item for the gym and it does not disappoint. I am by no means an audio expert, but the audio quality on this is similar to my skullcandy ones. Pairing with your phone is a no brainer because it'll automatically pair with devices previously paired to it when in range. The battery lasts a long time which is impressive, the build quality is excellent for the price, and it offers water resistance. It also comes with wire clips for when you're doing something sporty. On top of all of that, it comes with a carrying case which I double as a carrying case. So awesome!" β€”Michael Cabreros

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    26. A coloring book packed with animals just waiting to be filled in. Do you feel that? It's the stress leaving your body as you doodle through portraits of hedgehogs.,

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful and simple coloring book that is not limited to adults! I gifted this to my 13-year-old niece who says she doesn't color anymore because most coloring books are for kids (not teenagers like herself). BUT! She loved the intricate drawings and is planning on framing a couple for her bedroom wall." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

    27. Decorative stamps to take your sugar cookie game from one to Betty Crocker in seconds. This guarantees that the fruit of your baking labor will at least look good...even if the dough comes out burnt or severely undercooked.


    These stamps are dishwasher-safe and snap together for easy storage!

    Promising review: "These are AWESOME! I used these at my bakery for quite a few birthday parties! The impressions are fantastic when you use the right kind of cookie dough, they make it very easy to quickly and accurately decorate the cookies, and I love how they all nest into the cutter." β€”Deanna Briggs

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $9 (available in 12 designs).

    28. A bandeau and high-cut bottom so chic, it'll be impossible to not take a mirror pic as soon as you try it on. Look at you! Channeling your former Myspace self!


    Promising review: "I've never purchased a swimsuit on Amazon before because I've always been nervous about their quality, fit, and the legitimacy of the sellers. I made sure to read all of the reviews/look at all of the customer photos and I was STILL hesitant to buy. I pulled the trigger thinking if I didn't like it then it was only ~$20. But wow! I am so glad I took a chance on this bikini! I love the thick and buttery soft material and to my surprise, it fits perfectly! These bottoms come up to the bellybutton and sit on top of my hips which is great and, while the backside is a little skimpy, they are super flattering! I'll definitely be buying other patterns." β€”Marc Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 27 colors).

    29. A KitchenAid measuring set because we are all adults here. It's time to stop guessing how much a tablespoon of salt looks like. An actual spoon does not give an accurate estimate.


    This set is dishwasher-safe (yeehaw), comes with a lifetime warranty, AND is an excellent solution for people who lose everything β€” they're all held together with a sturdy (and removable if necessary) plastic ring.

    Promising review: "These measuring cups and spoons are great! They're made with thick plastic so they aren't flimsy or breakable. The individual cups and spoons can also be taken off the ring so it's not as bulky. The measurement labels on the handles are much better than on the ones I had previously, which completely faded away after just a few washes. I also really like the color, which it true to the picture. Definitely a good choice and worth the price!" β€”Kelsey Sullivan

    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $18.70 (available in three colors).

    30. Fizzy, handmade bath bombs that contain dried flower petals and a variety of delicious scents that will have you *deep breath* relaxed in no time. Get ready to inhale lavender, rose, green tea, milk, marigold, and osmanthus!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I shared these bath bombs with my family and we all really enjoyed using them. They were pleasantly fragranced, provided long-lasting fizziness, and left the bathroom smelling lovely for hours. There is a light coating on it to control the fizz, making it last longer than other bath bombs. It also lightly colored the water, providing a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely purchase again!" β€”J. Condrey

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $10.44.

    31. An adjustable ring featuring the initial of your first name (or the first initial of your S/O, you old sap!). Carrie Bradshaw may own the nameplate necklace trend, but *you'll* have the initial ring.

    Promising review: "I love this so much and it's even better quality than I expected! I looked at a bunch of rings and went with this one because the price was so good. I am definitely not disappointed!" β€”Leah Humphrey

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 26 letters).

    32. A 100% cotton crewneck t-shirt to pay subtle tribute to your zodiac sign. (To my fellow Scorpios, we are not that bad. We're just really driven! And passionate!)

    Farm Rio

    Get it from Farm Rio for $35 (available in sizes XS-L and in 12 styles).

    33. A pin tail comb that lets you get the perfect part! No more zig zagging, criss crossing lines on your scalp that look as if the wind had no mercy.


    This comb is also great for people with thin hair! If you want to tease your mane a bit for extra volume, this is the perfect tool to do so.

    Promising review: "Love this comb! It's good quality and helps me get that perfectly centered part every time. The metal end helps me keep it in line with my nose, and the little cover it comes with is nice, too, because it keeps the pointy part covered and safe while not in use." β€”Hanna

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    34. A pencil holder you should purchase with caution. It's very likely that it will drive away, most likely to the tune of the Scooby Doo theme song.


    Promising review: "The picture doesn't do this pencil holder justice! It is super cute and perfect for anyone interested in vintage trailers. It was very easy to put together and quite sturdy. There are four compartments, so you can divide between pencils, pens, markers and scissors." β€”Barbara Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    35. A t-shirt dress that must be the child of springtime Christmas because this is here to bring you tidings of comfort and JOY. This cozy maxi is the perfect thing to throw on and is *super* easy to dress up.,

    Promising review: "This dress is WOW! Fabric is soft and I love the cut and the fit. The pockets are an added bonus. I am 5’ 4” and it is the perfect maxi length. Most maxi dresses are too long for me, but this one was perfect!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 29 colors).

    36. A leather hole puncher to customize the fit of your belts and bags because a) a bag that’s too long will flop around your hips and look uncomfortable, and b) a belt that does not properly fit will sometimes just hang there between one belt loop and the next. In short - invest in this hole puncher. It is truly worth it.

    Promising review: "I ordered this to shorten a couple of leather belts, but was nervous because I don't have a lot of hand strength. NOT A PROBLEM! It is easy to operate even for weak little me, and everything you need is included. I had two belts adjusted within five minutes!" β€”Annie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    37. A spray hand sanitizer that kills β€” Destroys! Obliterates! β€” 99.99% of icky germs that cause all **cough cough, I can't come, I'm sick** situations.


    Disinfect everything. EVERYTHING.

    Promising review: "Umm, this stuff is amazing. I usually hate hand sanitizer because of the way it makes my hands feel after, but this leaves zero film on your hands and it also smells delightful. I also love that it's a spray. Easy for kiddos and adults alike!" β€”Rebecca Rucker

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.99+.
