Promising review: "I absolutely love this book and am so happy to have it in my collection. I was initially surprised and disappointed to find there are only five pages in the whole book, however there are at least five pop-ups on each page and so much to see and discover. It covers all the Pixar films (including shorts) from the very beginning in 1984 up until 2017 (the last movie being Coco). Each feature length film has its own pop-up and they are all beautiful and spectacular! There is a small piece of writing on each page but the focus is most definitely on the illustrations." —Amazonian Mama

The cable knit hat with pompom in pink

Promising review: "This is the best, cutest hat. And so warm with the fleece inside. I got so many compliments in the sub-zero weather. My head is large (not disproportionately, however I don't like hats that are too tight) and the fit is perfect. My friend even wanted the link so she could order one in a different color!

Wow, this takes me back. I was excited to finally get it in the mail. I loved this comic strip as a child. Reading it was one of my favorite things to do when I was given current events homework, it brightened up the homework aspect of reading a newspaper. My favorite thing about the collection is finally having all of the comics in chronological order. Reading this has brought me back to the simple joys of my childhood. In addition, I can now understand the clever humor of Bill Watterson that I would not have understood when I was a child." —Cathy

19. A compact shiatsu massager that over 20,000 reviewers swear by for rubbing sore, tired muscles. They can use it on their neck, back, and legs for sweet, sweet relief.

Promising review: "Over the years I've bought and returned a few different massagers. The ones that attach to the chair are just too big. The smaller ones hurt or just vibrate. The Sharper Image ones are junk. So... I took a chance with this one. Wow! This really works. I like that it's smaller so you can actually position it where you want. It turns in one direction for a little while and then it switches and goes the other way. When it turns, it really feels like a massage instead of that vibrating feeling. I really like how compact it is and how it doesn't move too fast. It's just a steady massage that's hands-free. I can use it on my calfs, legs, back, shoulders and neck. If this breaks I will definitely buy another one. This is the best massager I ever had." —cbear

Get it from Amazon for $64.95.

20. A cozy tortilla blanket for anyone who wishes they were a warm and delicious burrito.

A model in the blanket

Promising review: "Love this tortilla towel! I ordered it, thinking that it would be a great novelty gift, cheap but funny. It's SO much nicer than I thought it would be! It's heavier than expected and definitely keeps you warm. I got it as a birthday gift and it was a BIG hit!!" —Rebecca Russenberger

Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in seven sizes and four colors and styles).

Learn more about the life-changing power of this honey in I Tried This Spicy Honey And It Changed How I Eat Every Meal.

Promising review: "Saw this on a Food Network show and decided to try! LOVE IT! Great honey taste with just a bite of heat at the end. My husband loves 'hot' and even grows his own peppers to eat on anything. He really likes this on his French toast and I like it with peanut butter. However, I just made baked beans and added tablespoon of Mike's Hot in addition to the brown sugar (reduced amount) and they were the BEST baked beans ever! I going to tell Mr Bush and Duke about Mike's Hot Honey!" —Ritakc

23. A pack of socks with character face backs that 1. look cute and 2. protect their skin from shoe friction.


Promising review: "I haven't had these socks for long and I'm not rough on socks, but the comfort is high. The extra tab at the back seems to keep them from sliding and the opening of the sock is smaller than most of my other socks." —Jen Kellner

Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $14.98.

24. And if all else fails, a 5-pound bag of GUMMY BEARS. Can't go wrong with a lethal dose of sugar.

gummy bears

Promising review: "These are in fact the worlds best gummy bears! I know this because I have been out of the country a few times, mostly Europe, but I always buy gummies when I travel. The thing is, they are just the right amount of sweet and sour. They are a perfect balance. Each mouthful is a burst of gummy flavor. Sweet, chewy yet soft, and never exactly the same. My mouth starts to water in anticipation. I just can’t seem to stop eating them. I need to carefully ration them. Order up a 5-pound bag and enjoy." —Mike
