    40. Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza — a card game delivering a heavy dose of high-energy, adorably illustrated fun right when you need it.

    The deck with the cards face down
    A bunch of the different cards face up, each one is a different pastel color with an illustrated character on it and their name (i.e.
    Amazon

    Here's how to play: You deal all the cards out to your two to four players, and everyone keeps their mini-deck face down. Everyone takes a turn putting a card down in the middle of the table, saying one of the words "taco," "cat," "goat," "cheese," and "pizza," in that order. If the picture on your card matches the word that's said, everyone slaps their hand on the card in a pile as quickly as possible. The last person on the pile has to take the stack and add them to their cards, and whoever runs out of cards first wins!

    Promising review: "Ridiculous in a good way! I was skeptical about how much I may enjoy this game being in my mid-thirties. But it's a lot of fun! Easy to learn, easy to play, my 8-year-old has lots of fun with it. Its a great family game with the potential to be a late-night more adult-oriented event if you’re picking up what I'm throwing down. Cheers!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    41. A jewelry-cleaning pen, meaning a sparkling clean gem is just a coloring session away. This thing is easy, effective, and cheaper than a trip to the jeweler.

    42. A Rosebud Motel keyring, because who wouldn't want to stay at the motel that won the award for Best Customer Service in a Motel Under 20 Units at the The Hospies?!
