    8. A pair of doughnut pans so you can stop arguing with the local Dunkin Donuts about the proper sprinkle to frosting ratio and just make your own dang treats.


    Promising review: "I was craving donuts since having to go gluten-free and found a recipe I wanted to try but of course, I didn't have a pan. These were exactly what I needed. Not overly expensive but a nice quality pan. I do oil them lightly and I have had no problems with the donuts sticking. The pans clean up easily. I was afraid the dark finish might over brown the donuts but that does not seem to be the case. So far I have had no issues with these pans and would recommend them." β€”Tooth Fairy

    Promising review: "This is the best drawing book you'll ever pick up. Am I exaggerating? No, I am not. This book has no 'how to draw this step by step' parts. You don't want that, I promise. If your goal is to really improve your drawing skills, then get this book. This book gives you blank pages with a random prompt. Your goal is to draw that prompt. No guides. These prompts can range from a skunk, to a crayon, to David Bowie, to a sense of humor. Just random prompts.

    Why is this the best thing for your skills? If you really want to get good at drawing, you have to practice drawing everything. You haves to expand and understand your mind reference library. The bigger you mind library is, the better art you will make." β€”Natalie

    Promising review: "Bought this on a whim, but no regrets! It smells delicious! The smell reminds me of toasted almonds and almond cookies! I love how you can lick it off (no weird chemicals added), although I just wash it off. But the little bit I have tasted tastes like an almond cookie! I used the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediate tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my chapstick lasts much longer on my lips. I made my husband use it once, and his lips were also much smoother and super soft after one use!" β€”Cowie
