    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.97.

    2. A Shrek toothpaste cap to make all your TikTok dreams (or nightmares?) come true.


    I thought products like this were only true in fairytales.

    Get it from CasualChicken on Etsy for $6.99.

    I also recently watched a TikTok for a larger version that gives you literal heart eyes — fun!

    Promising review: "I was a little nervous about getting the heart one since no one had reviewed it yet, but I decided to take a chance since it was so cheap. I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing this little thing is! The max brightness is borderline blinding, and the lowest setting is wonderful for casual picture-taking. I got this so I can use it for streaming, and was a little disappointed with how small the clip is to attach it to the monitor — it appears it’s only wide enough to attach to a thin laptop. However, with all the stands it comes with, that’s not really much of an issue. Definitely would recommend if you’re wanting a cheap heart light!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.13.

    5. A cat bookmark that lights up your life AND your book!

    smiling cat light bent over page

    Promising review: "I pretty much need book lights everywhere I go. Some are a bit damaging to the pages, others are a bit too flimsy. This one will work well as a bookmark-style book light because of the thin profile. That'll be nice for storage, not just for book light use. For us readers, you never really can have too many book lights, and this one will do the trick. It also comes with a battery and comes in additional colors." —Tana

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two colors).

    6. A wonderful seashell candle to make all your mermaid-related dreams come true.

    7. A pack of squishy narwhal toys you'll make a point of squeezing every day.,

    Promising review: "These are so great for kids with sensory issues, and those who need to constantly be doing something with their hands. My daughter is very busy and these help her relax when she is nervous and busy. Nice quality and seem to handle being squeezed well." —Saramaya

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $19.99.

    hand drips jelly bean goo into bottle

    Some reviewers note that this product uses sucralose (used for sweeteners like Splenda) when stevia would be preferable.

    Promising review: "OMG! I LOVE Jelly Belly jelly beans...I live 5 miles from the California Factory! I KNOW, right? Anyway, I've been trying different water enhancers and reviewing them here and these are, by far, of COURSE, the best, hands down! ONE squirt flavors as much as a regularly flavored drink. Comparatively speaking, it's economical. They just need MORE flavors! Like standard Jelly Belly Jelly Bean flavors — tangerine, lemon, etc. I'd DEFINITELY buy licorice, too! LOL! This is the best I've found out there, folks." —JOHN

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in eight flavors).

    10. A McDonald's Happy Meal or nugget AirPod case cover for people who wanna show off their love of fast food. Personally, I would like a chicken nugget phone case and a Happy Meal purse to place it in. Can Amazon make that happen for me, or???

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE my new waffle-maker. I'll be honest — it is much smaller than I expected. You can carry it in one hand with ease. (It's a about the size of one hand.) But I really do love it. They turn out pretty fluffy so even though they're small, they have substance to them. Plus, how can you beat a heart waffle???" —Rachel

    pile of gummy bears

    Listen, I'm gonna leave a short review here, but click through and read some of the dang novel-length reviews some people are leaving. People are passionate about these gummies! Maybe it's because they're softer than other brands and have 12 (!!!) flavors.

    Promising review: "As a gummy fanatic for more years than I care to admit, I have tried all sorts of brands, both popular brands and generic, domestically and internationally. In terms of taste, moisture, aroma, and variety, Albanese gummy bears are unmatched. Yes, they're pricey, but if you prioritize quality over quantity, this is the purchase for you. Treat yourself to absolute quality and go for Albanese." —trev rogers

    Get it from Amazon for $14.40.

    colorful rainbow fire

    Promising review: Mystical Fire Colorant is amazing. For a really fun experience, get some of these for your next camping trip. As if a campfire needs improvement... but this stuff is really neat. I'd say the adults love it even more than the kids. We only used one packet and the colors were so good — seems like they lasted at least 20 minutes. There was even color left in the ashes the next day. We will never go camping again without several packs of Mystical Fire on hand." —TeNe

    Gibs Grooming / Via

    Promising review: "I'll admit it. The packaging sold me on this product because I love skull things. But my husband, who has a short beard, really enjoys using it. He says it's easy to apply and after only a single use, it softened his hair so much that he kept stroking his beard all day. He and I both like the scent; it's pleasant but not too strong. I'm eager to try it on my tattoos and it looks great on the bathroom counter." —Dephal
