    1. A marble notepad for your most elegant and contemporary thoughts.

    Just because you can't afford granite counters doesn't mean you can't afford granite-patterned paper.

    Get it from RosyCatPlans on Etsy for $1.99+ (available in two sizes and three patterns).

    2. A blind bag with a mystery Lilo and Stitch character (spoiler: it will probably be Stitch).

    Promising review: "Got this keychain bag for my six-year-old daughter because she's into watching mystery boxes and things being opened on YouTube so I knew she'd like this surprise. The figure is well made, highly detailed, made from good quality, and has no visible paint blemishes." —Emanuel

    Get one from Amazon for $2.49.

    3. A pack of juicy-looking fruit erasers that'll be the apple of your eye.

    Get a pack of five from bluoreen on Etsy for $0.51.

    4. A little book light so you can get a little reading done even when everyone else is asleep.

    Promising review: "Nice light. It's pretty bright and clips on fairly well (at least to hardcover it does). It survived two drops from the bed." —Sam Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

    5. A small copper and silver bud vase for housing some tiny flower pals.

    Get them from World Market for $2.79.

    7. A floral choker you'll want to wear every day.

    Get it from Boohoo for $1.20.

    8. A ring with a hidden bottle cap opener so you can look like a total badass who opens bottles with their bare hands.

    Promising review: "I love bottle opener rings. I only had one previously, in silver, so I got these. Know that you'll probably end up wearing these on your thumbs (like I do) because they're quite large. That said, they don't seem to scratch easily and they're very convenient on the thumb anyway — I don't end up needing to take it off to get the bottle open half the time. A+" —skyylark

    Get it from Amazon for $3.59.

    9. Or an ace of spades bottle opener for something a little more magical.

    Is this your card?

    Promising review: "This card is made of thick steel: It's not going to bend or break unless you are trying to bend or break it. It also opens bottles better than any bottle opener I've ever owned. This is a small thing, granted — because prying off bottle caps isn't rocket science — but by making you press down on one side and roll the other side up, it does actually make plucking the bottle cap off incredibly easy, and if you like to collect them, they won't be deformed." —J. Brunner

    Get it from Amazon for $1.80.

    10. A pack of New Year's confetti worth celebrating.

    13. A pair of crescent moon hoop earrings that are out of this world.

    Get it from Boohoo for $1.50.

    14. A pack of cute bunny stickers you'll want to stick on everything.

    Promising review: "I love these stickers so much. There are so many to chose from. I actually have a few on my laptop right where my hands rest to type! I'm so surprised that I haven't rubbed them off." —Sophie

    Get it from Amazon for $2.15.

    15. A rainbow-colored fidget spinner so cool it'll score you some major points with the young people in your family this holiday season.

    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting much from this spinner when it arrived and I discovered it was made of hard plastic. To my pleasant surprise, this thing has incredible spinning action. I consistently get two to three minute spins." —Ima Rascal

    Get it from Amazon for $2.55.

    16. A set of strap-on LED lights for a light show right at your fingertips.
