    2. Caffeinated gum — it'll get you through your four-p.m. slump without leaving you feeling jittery and wired until well into the night.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Each piece combines 40mg of caffeine (a cup of coffee usually averages 95mg) with L-theanine (an amino acid that supposedly promotes stress relief and focus) and B-vitamins (another non-caffeine boost) so you feel clear, alert, and energetic. Read one BuzzFeed writer's Neurogum review (it's #2).

    Promising review: "As a medical student this has been an amazing addition to my daily study regimen. Same amazing boost as the Diet Coke and coffee I used to chug, but without the jitters, crash/headache, or teeth staining. It's become my new go-to for staying awake and alert in the OR or on the wards. Highly recommend for anyone who needs a pick-me-up but doesn't want that "wired" sensation you get from coffee." —R. Sardesai

    9. A little boat that helps you grow your own avocado plants right on your window sill.

    You can make some guacamole and then plop that pit right into the boat and float in water. While these plants probably won't produce tasty green fruit, they're really pretty to have in your home.

    Helpful review: "These are a fun novelty and make starting an avocado seed easy. I wish they were not this expensive as they are only made from plastic. I have six boats. It's easier than the old toothpick trick. I've grown several plants and also sold several for $20 so I've paid for my boats. My only comment is that in the description it says you have to wait till it is a certain height with leaves before you plant it. That is not the case, as soon as you have roots you can plant it in the soil with the seed a bit above soil level and it will continue to grow. Make sure you peel the skin off the avocado seed before starting it in the boat. They like bright light and quite a bit of water once they are planted in soil They also need to be transplanted into bigger pots frequently. They don't have compact roots, just long ones. Don't ever expect to reap avocados from these as it will take over 5-10 years if they ever do produce fruit. It is mostly just for the fun and novelty and for us crazy plant people it provides an interesting houseplant. Happy Growing." —CLR

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in four colors or in packs of three).

    10. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top.


    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

I like how the box turns into a holder with an easy place to keep the stylus pens. There isn't anything negative that I can say about these, I will definitely keep these in mind as a gift idea for others in the future." — Brittany

    Promising review: "Perfect for egg muffin sandwiches; it's the right size and height after cooking compared to the 'Mc' brand. It is the best I have found after many years of trying. If you have ever wanted to make your own egg muffin at home, this pan is the one to use." —Stephen J. Panasik

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    30. A beer shampoo bar for a different kind of ~sudsy~ shower.

    This soap is the equivalent of two bottles of liquid shampoo and is great for traveling.

    Promising review: "Great Product. Washing your hair with it feels absolutely decadent. The smell is not overpowering, sort of gingery. I tried other shampoo bars (Maple Hill Naturals shampoo and conditioner bar and J.R. Liggett shampoo bar) and they don't come close to the quality of this shampoo bar. The price may be much higher than that of the other two brands I tried, but it is well worth the money. Even when washing your hair every day and with sensitive scalp issues, your hair and scalp stay smooth and clean. I have natural untreated silver hair, which is healthy, but very fine. And even though it does not create miracles and give me a head of voluminous full thick hair it is giving it enough volume so that I don't need other hair products to blow dry my hair." —Angelika Teal

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.
