    2. A mini heart-shaped pan for heart-shaped eggs and pancakes.

    4. A pair of cactus dryer balls so your laundry will come out feeling anything but prickly.


    Promising review: "I don't know what kind of sorcery this is, but these things work. It used to take three cycles to dry my comforter and bed sheets. I'm one of those set-it-and-forget-it people, so I'd always forget to turn the dryer back on for round two and three, which meant that at midnight, when my husband and I were about to pass out from exhaustion, I'd remember the sheets and comforter were still in the dryer, undoubtedly damp because I didn't run them through the dryer another two times. So I finally bought these puppies and as usual, I dried the comforter and bed sheets once, and forgot to check on them. That night, my husband asked where our sheets were since they weren't on the bed at bed time. Then he groaned, and asked if I remembered to really dry them. So I checked the dryer and lo and behold, they were dry!" —Gabby

    Get them from Amazon for $8.

    5. Or a cactus humidifier because sometimes your dry home feels like the desert.


    Promising review: "I just received it and set it up and it worked right away and is putting out a lot of mist. It is smaller than I thought shorter than the length of a pen, but that's my fault for not paying attention to dimensions. It cycles through the colors quite nicely. The only issue I see is that it is not clear how to open up the tube to replace the filter. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it and update how it is going." —Cactus Lover

    18. A Mickey Mouse toaster so at least one of your foods can be Disney-themed. Sadly, we can't live in Disney World and eat mouse-shaped food forever, so this is the next best thing.


    Promising review: "I had to replace my toaster because toasters do not last forever. I decided since it was time to shop for a new toaster that I would downgrade from my large 4-slice toaster to a quaint 2-slice toaster to gain some counter space. I saw this little baby on Amazon and it caught my eye, plus the price was awesome. The color and graphics are just as bright and cheery in person as it looks in this picture. The settings are pretty accurate as far as how dark or light you prefer your toast. The coolest part is that it leaves a Mickey Mouse head-shaped outline on one side of your toast. Since it totally toasts one side, it doesn't taste like untoasted bread in those areas on the other side. One thing that I don't like is that the toaster almost feels like a toy. Despite the fact that it toasts so well, it is very light and therefore a bit cheap-feeling. But having said this, I feel like this is something that I'd get used to kind of quickly. Overall, I love this toaster. Guests comment on its good looks. If they receive toast, they gush over the Mickey head shape. I recommend this to fans of Disney and toasted bread everywhere." —Michael Scapp

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    19. A simply magical ice (or candy) mold for anyone who thinks drinks are the ~mane~ event of any dinner party.


    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    20. A mini Henry desk vacuum so precious, you'll want to use it on your whole home.


    OMG, and it actually wheels around like a regular sized vacuum!! AA batteries not included.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.30 or Asos for $21.

    21. A rabbit pizza cutter and fox ice cream scoop everyone will ~fauna~ over.


    Get the rabbit pizza cutter and the fox ice cream scoop from Anthropologie for $28.

    22. A Star Wars slow cooker so you don't have to ~force~ yourself to cook — this thing will do it for you!


    It holds seven quarts, has cool-touch handles, and offers three heat settings. Hand-wash only.

    Get it from BoxLunch for $49.90.

    23. Cat-shaped spoons you better keep your eye on or else someone will try to ~whisker~ them away.


    Their arms hook nicely on the side of your mug for later.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    24. A pig can opener because the idea that kitchen basics can't be cute is totally hogwash.
