    Promising review: “I can’t stop putting Fly by Jing on everything. EVERYTHING. I got my boyfriend addicted too. You can tell the quality of the ingredients is really high and fresh. The combination creates the most delicious umami that turns a boring basic meal (like literally plain noodles) into a joyful feast. My favorite food find of the decade.” —Victoria

    Moon Juice

    Promising review: “I was using it to help some fine lines starting to form but it actually cleared up the acne I sometimes get on my neck! I’m so excited. Nothing I have ever used has been able to do this. I use it every night and sometimes in the morning. I have very oily skin so I tend to get some random acne even with regular washing. I am so glad I found this!” —Alicia N.

    Get it from Moon Juice for $42.

    3. A high waisted biker short to hold you in while still allowing for maximum flexibility. They fit seamlessly to all body types and will definitely become your new favorite hiking/biking/walking attire.

    the high waisted biker short in black on a reviewer

    Promising review: “These shorts are going to be part of my Summer 2018 anthem. I wore them for the first time during a 10K race (took a chance) and they served me well. The high waist keeps my tummy in place. The 8" inseam is a comfortable length on my thighs - not too short or long. The legs didn't ride up either. The pockets were perfect for my big phone, a Samsung J7. Not once did my phone pop out. Perfect thickness of fabric. They passed the squat test (not see-through when squatting). Several of my runner friends were interested in them for themselves. I immediately bought another pair in navy. I imagine I'll purchase a few more pairs as I train for my marathon.” —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 45 colors; available in sizes XS–3XL).

    4. A pair of round sunglasses for the skincare aficionado who wants to protect every inch of their skin from the sun. Not only are they large enough to provide protection for half of your face, but they're super stylish at an amazing price point.

    Promising review: “Top quality sunglasses! I have many of the Sojos brand, but when these came, it was a jaw-dropper! The wing on the corners looks so awesome framed in black. They arrived in time and with a soft case and cloth. Will purchase more!” —BadBarbara

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in seven colors and three lens colors).

    5. A phone tripod because what's better than not having to hold up your phone during a lengthy FaceTime call? It's perfect for voice recording too, and won't accidentally mute your audio when you cover the speaker during a phone call.

    the reviewer's image of the phone tripod in black

    Promising review: “Easy to use and provides the convenience I need to use my phone with remote capabilities to talk, record, and take videos and pictures. It’s perfect when you don’t need a large tripod. It sits easily on a desk or table and the flexibility of the legs gives you the ability to maneuver the angles for specific purposes. I use it for hands-free video calls, for creating videos and pictures for my social media posts. And it’s so easy to use. You will be up and running in less than five minutes. So far, I am a happy customer.” —Tonya Cornileus

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A FitBit so you can track your fitness and keep your physical health top of mind. It's an easy way to check in on your steps for the day and ensure that you're incorporating movement into your day-to-day.

    the Fit Bit in silver on a reviewer's wrist

    Promising review: “I decided to get this after my Alta HR finally died. I was happy with the functionality of the Alta, but this model has greatly improved my motivation when it comes to getting my workouts and steps in. I also think it looks nicer and I don't mind the slightly larger size. I don't have any issues with the touch buttons on the sides, probably because my wrists are so small and I wear my Fitbit further away from my wrist. My Alta would sometimes slide around so I'd have to move it higher up when I worked out, but this Fitbit stays put and I never have to adjust the band. I really couldn't be happier with my purchase especially with the Black Friday deal!” —S. Guderjohn

    Get it from Amazon for $78.95+ (available in three colors).

    7. A Calvin Klein racerback bralette that is perfect for holding you up without squeezing you too tight. If you aren't a big underwire bra-wearer, this is for you.

    reviewer wearing the cotton bralette in pink

    Promising review: “I got this in black and it is sooo cute!!! I have a few already but this was the best price I have found on the Internet. Not too tight on the back or on the boobs. It’s very comfortable. I wouldn’t recommend to wear for doing cardio if you have larger breasts because there isn’t enough support to keep them from going up and down 😭 but it’s very nice for everyday wear. You can see nips through it a bit but that comes with the territory of wearing thin sport-like bras. I love this one and I’m ordering a bunch more. Thank you!!!” —LSan

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in 17 colors and sizes XS–3X).

    8. A macrame fruit hammock for the person who loves fruit but doesn't love the space it takes up on their counter. It's the perfect storage solution and makes a great use of space.

    Promising review: “Beautiful and functional! This is the perfect addition to our beachy kitchen. We spray-painted the hooks matte black to match our other hardware. It’s so cute!” —Mellisa Wilkes

    Get it from Macra-YAY Macrame on Etsy for $30.

    9. A Balm Dotcom universal skin salve so you can leave your lips feeling hydrated, replenished, and oh so smooth. Plus, it comes in tons of incredible flavors so every time you reapply, it will be like a little treat for your mouth.

    the Balm Dotcom universal skin salve in coconut balm

    Promising review: “I am not a lip balm girl per se, I was never someone who needed to have lip balm before leaving the house and I really only used it when my lips felt dry. Now, I literally bring this stuff everywhere and I gift it to all my friends. I am constantly reaching for it because it feels so good on my lips and makes them feel good even after it's gone. I had been seeing this around and advertised for like eight years and never purchased and I am SO glad I finally did, do not wait as long as me!!! Also, I saw someone else post that they rub the excess on their cuticles and I would def recommend this.” —CC

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

    10. A complete set of The Office DVDs for the person who's completely Office-obsessed. It'll definitely keep you entertained when there's nothing new on TV you want to watch (hello, Netflix) and is great to have for bingeing marathons.

    reiviewer's image of the office DVDs

    Promising review: “I don’t regret this at all. Although I have Netflix and can watch The Office on there any time, I thought It would be a great idea to own all of the office on DVD as well. I was debating buying this or buying all of the seasons separately, because I was worried if I would lose some content. I did not lose any content! It comes with so many extras, and not to mention — it looks so cool. If you’re a huge Office fan I guarantee you won’t regret this.” —Office lover 

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99.

    11. A ruffled lace-up swimsuit, because this suit will make any beach vacation feel super luxurious. It's a great way to start out any trip on a confident note and will definitely earn you lots of compliments.

    Promising review: “I absolutely love this swimsuit! The straps and cups help secure everything up top. I would not choose this suit if you are going to be super active and running around but again, it’s comfortable and does the job very well. It’s also true to size: I ordered an S and I’m 5’3”, 120lbs, 32DD.” —Mike Maguire

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in 18 colors).

    12. A two-person camping hammock that allows you to get extra cozy while you're enjoying the great outdoors. Whether it's reading a book or just taking a cat nap, you'll feel totally carefree hanging from a tree.

    the camping hammock being used at a camp site

    Promising review: “I had been wanting a camping hammock for a while, but wasn’t sure how much I wanted to invest, so when I saw this one and read the reviews I thought I’d give it a try. Ordered on a lightening deal and it was scheduled to arrive Thursday. We were camping Friday, so I registered my product to qualify for the lifetime warranty and then threw it in my backpack for camping. Once we got to our campsite, it was the first thing I set up. Set up was super easy, even for a novice. The whole family enjoyed it all weekend. Over the course of our trip it held: me on my own (my favorite :)), me and my 2 children (swinging and moving), and me and my husband. It held up great, and was the last thing we took down. I loved that everything fit in the bag, and it now hangs on my backpack so I’ll always have it with me. I suspect we’ll get a lot of use out of it!” —Laura Fritz

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in 17 colors).

    13. An eyeshadow primer for the person who wants to ensure their makeup goes on perfectly every time. If you don't have extra minutes in your day to go back and fix smudges and beauty mistakes, this investment might be the thing that saves you time in your morning routine.

    the eyeshadow before and after on a reviewer

    Promising review: “So I use this primer for my eyeliner AND eyebrows. And it is a life-changer!!! The majority of the day I'm waitressing outside on the patio in the humidity, I needed something to keep my eyeliner intact so I didn't look like a raccoon by the end of my shift. It literally kept my makeup looking like I just put it on allllll day no matter how bad I sweat in the heat!!! I used it only on my eyes first just to try and I was amazed. So the next day I tried it as a primer for my eyebrows too before I filled them in and it does the same for my eyebrows! I'm in love with this product.” —Molly

    Get it from Amazon for $13.48 (available in three colors).

    14. A four-pack of Stasher food storage bags, because I can't get enough of these incredible eco-friendly solutions to the plastic default. It's like Tupperware without all the excess weight and I think that's pretty cool.

    the silicone pouch storing guacamole

    Promising review: “I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher-safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices.” —Megan A.

    Get it from Amazon for $46.70 (available in 17 colors and 14 sizes).

    15. A pair of Adidas slides so you can easily slip in and out of your shoe. It's great for when you need to run out and pick up a package or lounging poolside to keep from slipping.

    the Adidas slides on a reviewer's feet with five-star caption "The MOST COMFY shoe I’ve ever had! I’m getting another pair!"

    Promising review:Unbelievably comfortable!! They're stylish, and have a super soft sole. I have purchased this style by top designers...Gucci...Givency. The price tag was huge and they hurt like hell! Highly recommend these slides.” —kelly mcdermott

    Get it from Amazon for $21+ (available in sizes 2–13.5 and 51 colors)

    16. A lightweight sheet set because there's no better feeling than sleeping on a fresh set of sheets. It's super breathable and comes with four pillowcases so you won't need to order any additional pieces to make a complete set.

    the mirabel sheet set in white

    Promising review: “My Mirabal Sheet set is extremely soft (just what I needed). It has deep pockets thus fits my pillow top mattress perfectly. I’ve ordered the gold. It’s more of a marigold. It’s still quite lovely I couldn’t beat the price so I decided to order two. The king-size comes with FOUR pillowcases, a fitted and flat sheet and a bonus carry bag. I'm definitely having restful nights.” —Kay

    Get it from Wayfair for $22.54+ (originally $119; available in 13 colors and six sizes).

    17. A reusable water bottle that is as chic as it is efficient. If you've been looking for a new eco investment, this might be the best one you could make.

    the reviewer's image of the water bottle with a gold top

    Promising review: “This arrived fast from Amazon. I was surprised at how nice the box is with all the details and designs. Inside the bottle was wrapped in plastic with a gold tie which also looked good and well packaged. The quality of the bottle is very nice. It’s light, and the gold lid is shiny. The time markers look like they are going to help me a lot with hydrating in the days which I’m looking forward to. I also really like the logo, it’s small and thin lines, I really am interested in geometry so I think it’s a good idea to have this kind of image on the water bottle. The bottle is taller than I expected and holds a full liter of water, so two of these a day and I will be drinking enough. I’m very happy with my unboxing of this product and I’m looking forward to using it a lot.” —Amanda Padilla

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in two colors).

    18. An anti-chafe balm for the days when it's just too dang hot. If you tend to get those bumps between your thighs that come from walking in the sweltering weather, this will leave your skin in way better shape.

    Promising review: “OMG this stuff is the best! I am a chubby girl and I recently went to Thailand where it was 90 degrees with a 70% humidity every single day I was there. This stuff got me through! I was able to wear dresses and shorts with no chafing! And I only ever had to apply in the morning and once in the middle of the day! My life is forever changed I’ve already ordered two more!” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    19. A jumpsuit with pockets, because who came up with this idea that women don't need pockets? It's super comfy, makes for an instant outfit, and allows you to carry all the stuff you'll need.

    the reviewer wearing the jumpsuit in black

    Promising review: “I was a bit scared this wasn’t going to look right as I’m petite and jumpsuits sometimes don’t work well on my frame, but I’m quite impressed! For starters, the fabric is light and soft, making this jumpsuit super comfy! The ties around the waist are not adjustable, unfortunately. Instead, there’s an elastic band. If you have a petite frame, the elastic sits right at your belly button, giving the top half a 'loose' tank look. The bottom half are joggers, which allows you to adjust the length to sit mid-calf for us shorties. Overall, this jumpsuit is super comfy! It has the right amount of a 'loose' look if you’re petite like me. It’s the perfect closet addition for loungewear!” —Aggie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.41+ (available in 42 colors and sizes S-XXL).

    20. A cold brew maker so you can have coffee ready in 10 minutes flat in the morning. And honestly who wants to squander their whole morning when it's this easy?

    the cold brew maker next to a reviewer's cup of iced coffee

    Promising review: “So cool! Spin me up some of that cold brew. I started drinking cold brew a year ago and used the overnight method. That's all well and good, but once I was out I had to wait another day to have more – I guess I’m just not that organized and often forget to make the next batch.  I spotted this item and gave it a shot. So happy I did. Really neat design and now I can make it whenever I want. The how-to video on here was very helpful.” —AaronM

    Get it from Amazon for $40.56.

    21. A cross-body bag that is as cute as it is spacious. It holds tons of stuff and for the price, you really won't find a better deal.

    reviewer wearing the chain purse in black

    Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE this purse. I was searching for a large cross-body purse that was similiar to YSL cross-body purses I’ve been drooling over, but without the $3,000 price tag. This beautiful purse is sturdy, the black chain is gorgeous, and the feel of this purse is just amazing. It looks and feels WAY more expensive than what it’s priced at. This is such a steal of a deal and I promise you will not be disappointed!! I read other reviews and saw that people complained about the weight of the bag and the chain — it is a little heavy but to me that makes the purse more luxurious. It’s honestly not nearly as heavy as what the reviews make it out to be, plus the chain has a leather strap at the top where it rests on your shoulder, it’s not a chain digging into the shoulder so that helps! I highly recommend if you are in need of a beautiful designer-inspired purse at an affordable price!” —Chanel Elizabeth Dootson

    Get it from Amazon for $60 (available in six colors).

    22. A four-pack of cooling towels for the perfect workout accessory. It'll help you tolerate those incredibly hot summer days and might even inspire a little extra effort in your daily movement.

    Promising review: “I got these cooling towels on a whim, and boy am I glad I did! I was surprised by how they are made of a super soft material that is also very absorbent. I also really love the colors, they are so much more vivid in person. My husband suffers from hyperhidrosis, so he sweats way more than a normal guy. These towels have made those hot miserable days tolerable for him, I give him two towels damp and dry, to help alleviate his condition! So, thank you very much for making such a product available at such an affordable price!” —Kellie Shankles

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49 (available in four colors).

    23. A cooling bamboo blanket because there's no reason you can't use a blanket in all seasons. We get it, it's summer, but we still want to get cozy under a blanket and who can blame us?

    the cooling bamboo blanket in light gray

    Promising review: “First off, I live in Arizona, the hot weather is brutal! But I am the type of person who likes to sleep under the covers but rather not sweat through the whole night. This blanket is light, soft and breathable! It was exactly what I was looking for! I recommend buying it” — Silvia

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in 14 colors and five sizes).

    24. A two-pack of Chuckit! dog balls so your doggie can enjoy all the playtime they deserve. It's super easy to throw either by hand or with the throwing tool, and they're pretty indestructible, so at least it'll buy you some time between visits to the pet store.

    the balls next to a reviewer's dog

    Promising review: “My gal is 80 pounds of german shep/black lab. She's two and still acts like a puppy. If we don't play hardcore chuck-it throws two to three times a day, she is too much to handle. Literally she will play and run as far as we can throw these for 45 minutes straight. These balls are amazing. They bounce well and they hold up to her chewing them 24/7 like gum. Even sleeps with them. She has yet to chew them up. Mainly we lose them over a fence or in bushes, so every few months I buy eight or so. They are half the price on Amazon compared to local stores. My girl will go out of her way to only chew the solid orange ones. They must taste better. Then the orange and blue, then the solid blue and glow in the dark are last. I don't see what the difference is, but she knows.” —KEGGERS

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95 (available in sizes S–XXL.

    25. An electric pressure washer that will help keep your home super clean. It's perfect for rinsing stains off your outdoor walkways and will definitely become a go-to on chore day.

    the reviewer's image of an electric pressure washer

    Promising review: “We've been using this pressure washer at the cafe I own to wash the outside seating area. And we use it VERY often. I bought this pressure washer in July of 2018, it has been a year and a half and it is still in great condition and works with no problem. Great quality product! The pressure is high enough to get the ice cream stains off the concrete. One thing you need to watch out for is washing the pressure washer itself. It is very tempting to give it a rinse after using the pressure washer but DON'T DO IT. it is not waterproof, and you will kill it! Other than that a great pressure washer. highly recommend it!” —Donnie A.

    Get it from Amazon for $173.72.

    26. A 10-count of water balloons for the family who wants to engage in some serious bonding time through a good old fashioned water balloon fight. There's enough for everyone, but might as well get a few packs to have as backup.

    a reviewer's image of water balloon in a little toy truck

    Promising review: “We used these for a family reunions. Filled them a few hours before, some of them leaked and we just moved the band down on the neck of the balloon to make them more secure. We transported them in coolers about four miles on windy back roads and they held up. They are a little pricey but they worked better than the previous balloons we've bought at the dollar store or Walmart. I definitely recommend them. Everyone had a good time at the water balloon toss, and water balloon fight.” —KK

    Get it from Amazon for $26.60 (available in two colors).

    27. A pack of cat grass seeds because if your cat is experiencing gnarly hairballs you might want to incorporate this into their diet. It's a great way to keep up with your cat's health and give them a little something to chew on that isn't say, furniture.

    reviewer's cat eating the grass

    Promising review: “Very easy to grow indoors in small ceramic pots. Within three days there are three to four inches of grass! Bought it for my cat because she gets hairballs from grooming; despite brushing every week with our pet hair-removing brush. She eats it every day and I haven’t heard or seen the dreaded puke sound. The bag is bigger than I thought and can make several pots. Cheap and natural way to help kitty break up hairballs to pass safely.” —The Artist

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    28. A giant bubble wand kit so you can have fun with the whole family. It's a classic playtime activity and I don't think it'll be going out of fashion any time soon.

    the giant bubble wand kit

    Promising review: “Plan on making your own bubble solution with Dawn Platinum, what's provided isn't great. The tools are amazing and can be used by children from young to old! My favorite is the heart — it makes big bubbles from the middle part and then wave it around and gets lots of little bubbles!” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    29. A running belt that will hold your phone, keys, and other essentials while you break a sweat. Plus, it's adjustable so it'll work for everyone!

    reviewer wearing the running belt in camo print

    Promising review: “Ordered this to wear at the gym to hold phone, chapstick and locker key as I hate the arm type phone holders. After I received it but before I had a chance to use it, Seller contacted me and asked if my phone fit in it. They discovered an issue with some people receiving the wrong one. He quickly sent me a new one and I used it tonight for the first time. Great device, only as heavy as your phone is and I can wear it under my shirt and either run my headphones up my shirt or use my wireless ones. I can definitely see how I’ll get more use out of this too-walking the dog (phone, house key, poop bags!), riding my bike, even traveling when you need your hands free (ie airport). More stylish than the 80’s fanny packs and easy to hide under clothing. Great quality item made from quality materials and customer service that contacted me first-who knew they were out there! My faith in customer service is restored!” —Midwest Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in five colors).

    30. A SunPrint paper kit for the person who wants to preserve their family's art forever. It'll make for great memories and is decidedly a great way to pass an afternoon.

    the reviewer's photo of the sunprint paper kit

    Promising review: “My kids and I are having so much fun with these! My little artists have made some great images, and are making stationery to write family and friends, they even made ones of their tiny hands which I will always cherish. We bring the pages inside after the suggested time and immediately (and carefully) rinse them down briefly in the sink and lay flat to air dry, this seems to make the images permanent. I also cut the pages in half to be able to make more, rather than fewer large ones. Great little craft for the kids, and us grown-ups too.” —My2Cents

    Get it from Amazon for $20.50.

    31. A hand weeder tool because let's face it, there's nothing worse than a garden being ruined by a few pesky weeds.

    Person weeding with the tool

    Promising review: “I hate me some weeds folks. Hate is a bit of an understatement. This little gadget has been my sidekick this year. I have pulled a lot of stuff from the ground with this baby. I'm happy with my purchase and it has held the test of time in my yard that can't catch a break from the rain.” —CH

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    32. A neck fan so you can stay cool no matter where you are. It's perfect for trips to the amusement park, beach, or anywhere outside on a hot summer day.

    reviewer using the neck fan in black

    Promising review: “Been using this on my first trip to Disney World in Florida and it’s been a life-saver especially since mask wearing is mandatory. I can’t speak to how long the charge will last and that’s my only complaint, no battery indicator. But I used it on medium to low for roughly six hours, turning it off when going into air conditioning. I charged it every chance I got to make sure I was never without. Would highly recommend.” —Chellybelly01

    Get it from Amazon for $19.71 (available in four colors).

    33. A desk chair that's the perfect addition to any WFH setup. It's truly a great deal for the price and won't leave you feeling all hunched up at the end of a long day.

    the reviewer's image of the desk chair in white

    Promising review: “This chair is amazing. I love that it has a rocking/leaning feature, I love how high the chair can extend to and most of all, I love how comfortable it is. I work from home and this chair is great for sitting for long periods of time. It's also really great how the armrests lift up to save space. Totally amazing. I've had chairs that cost 3x more than this one that aren't this comfortable. This chair is a must-buy for folks that need an office chair.” —P05TMAN
