    1. A colony of penguin travel bottles so you can bring your favorite products wherever you go, without risking TSA grabbing a full-size bottle of something expensive.


    Promising review: "Bought these for my children to use during a camping trip. They are wonderful! Easy to fill up with your favorite shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap, lotion, etc. and the lid is secure and easy to get the contents out in the amount that you need. The penguin bottle is very soft (but durable) making it easier to get the last drop out and to clean out. Wonderful product. Kids loved it. Would buy again in a heart beat." —lisa

    2. A pair of cherry earrings to turn your head into a fruit bowl.


    Promising review: "These seriously might be the best thing I've ever ordered on Amazon! They're SO unique in how they fasten and absolutely adorable! I got a ton of compliments wearing them the first time! The cherry is more opaque in color than what is pictured, but that doesn't take away from how cute they are. They're also lightweight, so they won't weigh your earlobes down either! Cutest earrings, ever." —Stephanie

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99 (available in five styles).

    3. A six-pack of lip balms with lil' flowers inside.


    Promising review: "These lipsticks are so cute and so magical. The color that mine settles on my lips is subtle and not very dramatic. It almost gives me the feeling of wearing lip balm, which is my go-to for all things lips, so this was perfect!" —Daisy L. Alvarez

    Get them from Amazon for $14.98.

    4. A pack of cactus magnetic bookmarks that'll look a lot sharper than whatever weird receipt you got in your book right now.

    8. A "Make It Happen" notepad that helps you organize all the things you need to do each day by how urgent it is.


    Promising review: "This notepad is absolutely great at helping me organize my life, and it's so cute! It also comes at a really reasonable price. Overall, I am extremely pleased with this product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    9. A candy dispenser you can just put right on your desk. Consider yourself the Willy Wonka of your office.

    Apollo Box

    Get it from Apollo Box for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    10. A small elephant watering can who says "oh, hey, those plants look a little thirsty. Let me handle that."

    Promising review: "This elephant watering can is so unique! It was also much bigger than I imagined it to be for the price. The plastic itself is nothing amazing, and the mold has a few marks and imperfections on it, but that does not stop it from being an awesome watering can!" —Christine M. Chenique

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

    11. A pack of happy little Bob Ross bandages sure to paint the pain away.


    Get a box of 18 from Urban Outfitters for $6 or Amazon for $9.36.

    You get two Spongebobs and two Patricks so you and a BFF can enjoy some fun skincare together.

    Get them from HipDot for $20.

    15. A pair of colorful jelly sandals that — get this — has a lemon scent! Finally your feet can smell good for once.

    Lemon Jelly

    Get them from Lemon Jelly for $58.99 (originally $98; available in sizes 5.5–9 and five colors).

    16. A teeny-tiny Lite Brite for all your smallest works of art.


    Promising review: "It's so cute! I was pleasantly surprised that it came with a TON of pegs. The front of the packaging makes it look like it only comes with a few pegs, but you actually get a lot and there's a little drawer on the back where you can store them all. So cute and functional. Love it." —Princess Uber Alles

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (also available in 29 other toys).

    17. No-bake, frozen snack bites that offer a more-nutritious-for-you alternative to raiding the cookie jar.

    Daily Harvest

    The frozen hunks of goodness are meant to mimic three classic treats: chocolate hazelnut truffle (avocado, dates, hazelnuts, cacao, reishi, chia, and vanilla bean), chocolate chip cookie dough (chickpeas, dates, coconut, cacao, pumpkin, maca, and vanilla bean), and lemon coconut macaroon (coconut, dates, lemon, ginger, cinnamon, and galangal).

    The macaroon-like ones are definitely my favorite. I'd say these are great option when you're craving sugar but would like to get some nutrients in your dessert. Obviously they don't taste quite as nice as a spoonful of real cookie dough, but they do in a pinch!

    Get them as part of your Daily Harvest order: 12 cups for $89.88 a month (Daily Harvest also sells soups, smoothies, chia bowls, lattes, harvest bowls, and oat bowls).

    18. A book with spaces and prompts to draw 642 different things. Stop talking about how you want to get back into drawing and just do it!


    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." —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $15.26.

    19. Sweet looking sticky notes for a berry adorable way to remember what needs to be done.


    Get four notepads from Amazon for $5.99.

    20. A pack of cat paw socks you need right meow if you want to keep your floors purrfect and scratch-free.


    Unlike real cat paws, these socks keep scratches away!

    Promising review: "OMG, these are super cute and adorable! Very easy to put on, I do suggest that you slide the paw more towards the front so that it bends better when the chair is sitting up. The fact that it protects my floors and look like kitty paws has me sold." —JL

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four colors).

    21. A flying saucer for your most alien looking houseplant.


    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 or Firebox for $24.99.

    22. A roll of washi tape with some colorful raccoons just doing their thing.


    Get a roll from Meowashi on Etsy for $4.50.

    23. A coconut lip balm to blast away any trace of chapped skin and leave you with soft lips ready to suck down a piña colada.


    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!" —Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.90.

    24. A mini zodiac tapestry so people can get a general sense of your personality right off the bat. Total virgo move!


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in all signs).

    25. MIke's Hot Honey for adding a sweet kick to all your food.


    Read my full review of Mike's Hot Honey!

    Promising review: "Got a kick, but is still sweet! This was an impulse buy but now it's getting added to the rotation. It's delicious!" —Samidunks11

    Get it from Amazon for $8.06.

    26. A mermaid-tailed eyelash curler and matching mascara that'll help make your beauty routine go swimmingly.


    Get it from Tarte for $15 (originally $20).

    27. A whale of a cheeseboard that everyone will want to sea.


    It comes with a baby whale spreader!

    Get it from ModCloth for $24.99.

    28. And a glass water bottle to help you get your head out of the clouds and remember to stay hydrated.


    Promising review: "Loved this bottle as soon as I took it out of packaging. Just as described. The carrying pouch makes it easy to take the bottle on-the-go and keeps your bottle dry if you add ice and it sweats. Doesn’t fit in my car cup holder, but don’t care. It’s so cute that I don’t mind." —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two colors and sizes).
