1.A plant-based gel cream that works OT to tame those pesky flyaways that no amount of brushing can get rid of. The best part? This formula is non-greasy, completely transparent, and the mascara wand makes it super easy to apply.
2.A Cocokind spot treatment formulated with turmeric, ginger, and tea tree oil to zap zits overnight. Plus, this portable stick is a breeze when it comes to application: just dab this onto the pimple residing on your chin and wave goodbye to all messy (and smelly) topical creams.
3.A copper tongue scraper you'll begin to use with both disgust and fascination because the amount of built-up dead cells and bacteria you'll see visibly scraped off...will be quite a lot.
4.A batter dispenser that will turn the mess of baking (READ: take a moment to picture all the cupcake mix droplets scattered around your kitchen counter) into a much easier process. Simply pour in the batter, squeeze the lever, and bam! All of your baking mixes — everything from pancake and brownie to to crepe and muffin — will have been dispensed in a pinch.
5.A lint remover capable of picking up every speck of dust, dirt, and *important* pet hair plastered onto your furniture. Get dressed, sit on your couch to drink your morning coffee, and leave the house with peace of mind knowing your outfit isn't covered with a layer of fur.
6.A vegan, silicone-, and paraben-free Garnier Fructis shampoo packed with aloe extract and vitamin e for a deep clean. This stuff delivers strength and shine, shine, shine for a commercial-worthy mane; all you'll have to do is, well, wash your hair. *patiently waits for royalty check*
7.A corkscrew wine opener that can easily open your favorite $7 bottle of red in a pinch. It's even got a key foil cutter and a fancy pouch, which actually makes for the perfect hostess gift (although you'll probably end up just keeping it for yourself).
8.A Smoko boba tea light I've just added to my own personal shopping cart because how can I NOT? This battery-powered light (it requires three AAA batteries) fits perfectly on your tiny nightstand, provides a warm glow, and automatically shuts down after an hour so the batteries don't unnecessarily drain.
9.A buildable L'Oreal waterproof mascara that not only adds volume and length to your lashes, but it also does the unthinkable — and by unthinkable, I mean it won't smudge by mid-afternoon and create the dreaded ~panda eye~ effect. Like, I already have dark circles. I don't need mascara to enhance them.
10.A Scooby Doo-inspired crew sock pack cuter than Fred, Scrappy, and Scooby combined. But while the socks are lovely, it's the keepsake packaging that is truly the kicker; a *le gasp* real life MYSTERY MACHINE.
11.A Crabtree & Evelyn face foam here to deliver a smooth, clean, and clear complexion by way of the following ingredients: rose water, coconut water, cotton seed oil, crambe abyssinica seed oil, and meadowfoam seed oil.
12.Heeled sandals that will provide something that not many shoes can: comfort. Who's going to be taking off their shoes only two hours into that wedding party due to severe pain? Not you! Prepare to perform the funky chicken with ease.
13.A dishwasher-safe silicone strainer to drain your favorite meal with total ease. And by favorite meal, I obviously mean pasta with a side of more pasta and a generous helping of mac n cheese.
14.A North Star pendant necklace bound to ~guide~ your daily uniform because you'll only want to wear this single piece of jewelry...ever again. It's the perfect marriage between dainty *and* statement-making.
15.A jersey knit crewneck top capable of being worn with anything. Pair with jeans for a casual movie date, under a blazer for the meeting that could have been an email, with a black leather skirt for the birthday dinner you've sadly agreed to attend, and etcetera.
16.A satin pillowcase that adds a whole new meaning to the phrase "beauty sleep". Dreaming on this gorgeous thing will reduce bedhead, extend your blowout, and prevent hair breakage — all while you're catching up on some much-needed shut-eye.
17.A no-frills, fragrance-free Cetaphil body cream because changing weather = changing skin. If you're in need of some serious moisture and hydration, this jar of ✨ magic ✨ will truly deliver.
18.An oversized faux shearling jacket so soft, you'll basically feel as if you're wearing a combination of your favorite blanket and most cuddly teddy bear. Comfortable + super on-trend + much more affordable than your typical piece of outerwear = Christmas in October.
19.A New Orleans-style kit for a delicious, creamy iced coffee blended with a hint of chicory. Will you want to drink this all year long? Even when it's -5° outside and the weather can best be described as "my face hurts"? Absolutely.
20.A Levi's motorcycle jacket available in nine different colors and finishes. From charcoal suede to green croc-inspired faux leather, I wish you luck as you attempt to choose just one.
21.An eyeshadow palette (from the Bye Bye Birdie! collection at ColourPop) packed with twelve gorgeous, pigmented, and cruelty-free hues that range from matte to metallic. Next GNO: please welcome the only product you'll want gracing your eyelids.
22.A ribbed pussycat bow top featuring trumpet sleeves that may actually inspire you to *le gasp* follow through on your going out plans. Just for an excuse to wear this, of course.
23.TSA-approved squeezable silicone containers because most hotel shampoos make my hair greasy a mere .5 seconds after showering, which is why these are a personal must. They're perfect for bringing along all of your favorite hair, body, and skincare products (the kind that are so rudely unavailable in travel-sized bottles).
24.A bottle of Yves Saint Laurent Libre guaranteed to become your new go-to fragrance; a combination of French lavender essence, Morrocan orange blossom, and musk accord provide for a unique scent that feels all your own.
25.A foot and shoe spray with peppermint, thyme, eucalyptus, and tea tree oil. If you've got sweaty feet, this natural and anti-bacterial formula will prevent any skunk-like odors from forming (which is, dare I say, no small ~feet~).
26.Hair clips that have the ability to take a boring white tee and turn it into something significantly more stylish. Plus, they keep your hair out of your face. I'm sure you already know that, but I felt it was worth specifying.
27.A Pond's cold cream cleanser that is *the* definition of tried-and-true. This inexpensive gem of a product is hypothetically the only item you'll need to stash in your skincare travel bag: a few quick swipes will dissolve makeup and give your skin a hefty dose of moisture.
28.A compression-style sports bra made from a special material dubbed ~The Sanitized~ that absorbs sweat while repelling any stinky odors. It's even equipped with a pocket to store small essentials (hello, house keys) and is comfortable enough to lounge around in. Like, think second skin-level comfort.
29.A heat-changing mug sure to shock you every time you pour your morning cup of caffeine. Prepare to blink and suddenly be met with the presence of a murderous evil clown! The perfect way to start a morning IMO.
30.A lingerie set complete with a lace bralette and high-waisted panty guaranteed to have you winking at your own reflection in the mirror. This is truly destined to become your new go-to LBL: Little Black Lingerie.
31.A vegan Bawdy mask intended for your booty. That's right! This citrus and plant-based collagen formula works to brighten your assets (*and* fight dullness and blemishes) while also leaving ~behind~ a complexion smoother than any baby's bottom.
32.A lightweight bomber jacket you'll want to throw on over whatever outfit you've decided is worthy enough for that apple picking day trip. Warmth + style = this lovely layer.
33.A cruelty-free EcoTools set packed with five brushes you'll use on the daily: an angled foundation brush, a concealer brush, an eyeshadow brush, an angled liner brush, and a blush brush. All for less than $10? HALLE- and I cannot stress this enough-LUJAH.
34.A clear Mavala Switzerland polish purposely designed to have a bitter taste, the kind that will make even the most chronic nail biter think twice before snacking on a finger. Less nail biting = stronger nails, faster growth, healthier cuticles, and a longer-lasting manicure.
35.An ultra soft Tasty sweatshirt featuring the 👏 only 👏 food 👏 items 👏 that I'd like my daily meals to consist of.
36.An ammonia- and peroxide-free L'Oreal Paris temporary spray for covering grays between salon visits. Consider this the concealer of your haircare routine, using a lightweight formula to hide silver strands with no smudging or sticky residue required. What do we love? Quick fixes to all our annoying problems. And this is that quick fix.
37.A genius SockDock to FINALLY get rid of that evil sock monster living in your dryer. This guarantees that every sock goes into the laundry room with a matching pair...and leaves the laundry room with its matching pair.
38.A Revlon eyeshadow palette for anyone who wants to experiment with ~bolder makeup lewks~ (think bright blue on your eyelids!) without forking over a ton of bottom dollar. Seriously, eight pigmented shades for less than $10? Pinch me.
39.A tie-waist midi dress that will be slithering into your shopping cart faster than you can say “AT WHAT POINT did snakeskin become so popular???!” I’m not sure of the answer, but hiss hiss because I am allllll for the trend.
40.A vanity tray that will house all of your perfume bottles, pretty lipstick tubes, facial serums, and etcetera! This luxe purchase has the ability to transform any bathroom into a spa-like oasis that looks as if it's frequented by very wealthy people.
