Read more about this beloved rainbow window film.

Promising review: "This window film is just STUNNING! I used it for the bottom half of my windows on my main floor for added privacy, so I don’t always have to keep my curtains closed! I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon." —Stacy M. Ambrose

12. Battery-operated fairy lights to add some warmth to your home.

mason jar with fairy lights inside

Promising review: "The lights are just as described and arrived right on time! They look amazing! I bought three sets of the cool white. I didn't have a light above my dining room table and didn't want to deal with doing any wiring in the ceiling to add a plug in, so I decided to make my own dining room lights with these. I put them in mason jars and then hung five of those above my table. They aren't quite bright enough on their own, but with the light in the living room (which is adjacent) it definitely produced enough light to actually see my food on my plate now. The small battery packs work great because I can just tape them to the lid of the jars and you can't see them. I love the way it looks! They add some character to my house and some nice ambiance. I will definitely be buying more for future projects." —Stephers34

Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

These things can hold A LOT and they're very sturdy. I love that they can fold up into tiny pouches so you can always have one on hand for shopping emergencies.

Promising review: "I received a Baggu bag several years ago as a gift, and I use it nearly every day! The things that sets Baggu apart from other bags: 1) Cute prints! There are a lot to choose from! 2) It folds and fits easily in my purse. You know those bags that you open up and can never fit it back in its original case? You will NOT experience that with these bags!! 3) Durability. I generally use my bags for canned goods and grocery shopping. The strap is also large enough to wear over the shoulder for ease of carrying. I'd recommend Baggu to anyone!!" —S T

Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in 32 colors and patterns).

15. A candle that looks like a pot of thriving succulents. You don't have to water it, but you do have to grapple with the idea of lighting it or not.

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

24. A blooming tea for anyone who expects a good show out of their beverages.,

The pack comes with 12 different flavors: Heart Bouquet, Jasmine Lover, Golden Oasis, Floral Passion, Sunset Love, Fairy Lily, Eternal Love, Rising Spring, Shooting Star, Fireplace Bloom, Dancing Leaves, and Enchanting Beauty. Pair it with a glass teapot or pitcher.

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. I also enjoy the variety of teas in this set and just love watching the flower 'bloom.' Also, drinking this tea has given me an excuse to use some of my fancier tea cups so I can pretend I'm relaxing at Downton Abbey." —Sarah Johnston

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

25. A trendy transparent raincoat that comes with black outline details so you can feel like a cartoon every time it rains.

27. A cactus humidifier, because your desk place doesn't have to feel as dry as a desert, even if you'd like it to look like one.

cactus shaped humidifier

Promising review: "This humidifier is absolutely adorable. I purchased it to put near my houseplants that needed some extra humidity. It looks adorable near them and I can already see a difference in my plants after just a week's worth of turning it on once a day." —MeganFromLV

Get it from Amazon for $12.89 (available in two colors).

28. A DIY miniature bookstore model so you can finally run your own (very) small business.


Promising review: "This model has been such an enjoyable build. As of now, I am not completely finished. Having put around 20 hours into it, I'd say I have another eight hours more to go. The pieces are all vibrantly pre-painted, with the exception of one large base piece. The glue and tweezers it comes with are perfect for the job. The cloth I had gotten for the couch was not large enough, but I improvised by using another color cloth (that also came with the kit) for the seat. The attention to detail in this little study is just first class. I even recognized books that I have read/purchased in the past within this model! I am not experienced at all with building wooden kits and I was still able to do this one perfectly with minimal struggle. I will certainly be buying more Robotime models in the near future, the greenhouse one is next :)!" —B.R.J.G.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (also available as a loft).

29. A pair of glass vases beautiful enough to steal the spotlight from any flowers you put in them.

Get a pair from Amazon for $24.30.

30. A holographic nail polish that shimmers so nicely in the sunlight, you might dump all your other nail polishes right in the trash.

holographic silver nail polish

Promising review: "This is liquid rainbow for your nails. I've found that with ILNP holographic polishes, as long as I use a good base coat and base color, I only ever need one coat of the holographic polish for good coverage (which is nice since the bottles are $10 a pop). The color lasts at least a week (with a good topcoat) minimum, and the colors are truly lovely." —Nnanelle

Get it from Amazon for $10.

31. An Always Pan, which is angling to become the only pan you ever reach for when cooking. It has an ultra-slippery nonstick surface, a vented top, a mesh basket for steaming, and a high-quality spoon that hooks onto the handle.

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Our Place

I have and love this pan! It just feels really nice to hold. The nesting spoon is absolutely genius, everything cooks evenly, and food just glides right off with minimal effort. If you hate scrubbing, consider getting this! See our full review of the Always Pan.

Our Place was founded by Shiza Shahid, along with Amir Tehrani and Zach Rosner. She's a Pakistani social entrepreneur who also cofounded the nonprofit Malala Fund, which promotes education for young girls.

Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in nine colors).

32. A tiger bath mat so you can feel like an accomplished hunter every time you step on it — hunter of great products, that is!

If you feel compelled to comment that a cutesy mat shaped like a cartoon animal pelt is cruel — don't! Donate to the WWF instead. 

Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

33. A cute terrarium that looks like a mini greenhouse! Having a greenhouse has always been a dream for me, but as long as I'm renting an apartment, this will have to do.

glass box shaped like a greenhouse with a hinged lid on the roof

Another use for it: I bought this as a card box for my wedding! I was looking for something that fit with my botanical theme and could be used again later. This is the perfect choice, because you can fill the bottom with fairy lights or flowers so the cards have a nice bed to sit on. The lid opens easily and has a little stand to keep it up. After the wedding, I plan to fill it up with humidity-loving plants and keeping the lid closed, so they get all the moisture they need. It's seriously such a beautiful box, you could use it for anything. 

Promising review: "Perfect home for my Madagascar hissing cockroaches. My mom said it made them look less like pests and more like some rare species displayed in a rich person's office." —Chanda Akles

Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in three colors). 

34. A box shaped like a gachapon filled with mystery washi tape! This is a wonderful gift, but if I were you, I'd get it for myself.

Promising review: "First off, I'm OBSESSED. This is the coolest/cutest ever! I was so glad to see that this is a local shop in the same city as me and to support it! Definitely going to have to buy the other two!" —Liv Watkins 

Get it from Anaxperience on Etsy for $5.25

35. A trio of Glossier's ultra-popular lip balm here to soothe your cracked and dry lips. There are seven amazing scents to choose from so you're definitely gonna want all three.

the tubes of semi sheer lip balm

There are eight varieties — two are untinted and one is unscented.

Promising review: "I highly recommend. I love Glossier Balm Dotcoms! They’re so hydrating and protective on the skin/lips. If you would like to use the Balm Dotcom as a skin salve, go with one that doesn’t have a tint. I own the cherry and the berry ones and I absolutely love them! These two especially can work as makeup because they have a stronger tint. I use them every day because I love how they look natural, but add a little extra something to my look while giving me the hydration my skin desires." —Ariana

Get three from Glossier for $36.

36. An embroidered veggie brooch, because if we can't play with our food, we might as well wear it.


Get it from Vyshyto on Etsy for $41 (available in five veggies or a custom shape).
