    1. A pack of bold hanging earrings that'll have all eyes on you, literally.


    Promising review: "I am obsessed with these! They are all good quality and the pictures are accurate for sizing. The heaviest pair is the abstract pair, otherwise I forgot I was wearing the others. The colors aren’t as bright on the abstract pair as in the picture." —Maggiel

    Promising review: "We got a new shower head because our old one had such bad pressure I couldn’t even rinse my hair (which is really thick). I ordered this one and the pressure is AMAZINGLY POWERFUL. The lights work great and it was so simple to install." —DeAna Vargas

    The four-piece set comes with a dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, and mug. Each swirled design is totally unique!

    Get it from Food52 for $69+ (available in six colors).

    10. Battery-operated fairy lights to add some warmth to your home.


    Promising review: "The lights are just as described and arrived right on time! They look amazing! I bought three sets of the cool white. I didn't have a light above my dining room table and didn't want to deal with doing any wiring in the ceiling to add a plug in, so I decided to make my own dining room lights with these. I put them in mason jars and then hung five of those above my table. They aren't quite bright enough on their own, but with the light in the living room (which is adjacent) it definitely produced enough light to actually see my food on my plate now. The small battery packs work great because I can just tape them to the lid of the jars and you can't see them. I love the way it looks! They add some character to my house and some nice ambiance. I will definitely be buying more for future projects." —Stephers34

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A privacy window film that's easy to install and fills your home with lots of rainbows when the sun hits it just right. Now you can sing "somewheeeere over the rainbow" as you step over your cat.,

    Read more about this beloved rainbow window film.

    Promising review: "This window film is just STUNNING! I used it for the bottom half of my windows on my main floor for added privacy, so I don’t always have to keep my curtains closed! I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon." —Stacy M. Ambrose

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in nine sizes).

    12. A pack of space-themed notecards you'll be starry-eyed for.

    14. A pack of macaron bath bombs — you won't know if you should throw them in your tub or eat them (throw them in the tub please).


    Promising review: "I ordered these bath bombs for my girlfriend. She absolutely loved them! She loved the variety of fragrances in the arrangement, how they were presented in the box, and the fun instructions. I highly recommend this company and this product!" —Amazon Customer

    16. A colorful patterned Baggu to help you cut down on plastic grocery bag waste and look good doing it.


    These things can hold A LOT and they're very sturdy. I love that they can fold up into tiny pouches so you can always have one on hand for shopping emergencies.

    Promising review: "I received a BAGGU bag several years ago as a gift, and I use it nearly every day! The things that sets BAGGU apart from other bags: 1) Cute prints! There are a lot to choose from! 2) It folds and fits easily in my purse. You know those bags that you open up and can never fit it back in it's original case? You will NOT experience that with these bags!! 3) Durability. I generally use my bags for canned goods and grocery shopping. The strap is also large enough to wear over the shoulder for ease of carrying. I'd recommend BAGGU to anyone!!" —S T

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in 32 colors and patterns).

    These are very cool! They're made with thick glass and balance well. All the edges are rounded so they feel nice to hold.

    Promising review: "These glasses are a great conversation piece. They feel good to the touch, the glass is sturdy, easy to clean, and stable. I ordered them a second time as well. These are definitely a 'must' purchase." –Ski-dogs

    Read BuzzFeed's review of these beautiful vitamins. They taste minty and look pretty, so they might actually motivate you to take your vitamins.

    From the review: "I'm honestly not convinced that I need to take vitamins at all, though my doctor has been bugging me to take a Vitamin D supplement for like two years and this is the first thing that actually got me to do it. (Ritual contains 2000 IU of Vitamin D, and that, combined with my doctor's D recommendations, helped sell me. I later pulled up the Ritual website in her office to show her the exact amount of D in the vitamins — because she was skeptical when I told her it had more than most multis — and she was legit impressed/approved.)" —Rachel Wilkerson Miller, BuzzFeed

    Get your personalized vitamins from Ritual for $30 a month.

    33. A disco ball-inspired face mask so you can feel like you're the life of the party, even if you decided to stay home and pamper yourself instead.


    Promising review: "I really, really like this mask. When you apply the mask to your face it looks like shimmering pearls. What I really like about the product is that it is a peel-off mask. Depending on thickly you put the product on your face it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful." —Grandma Fran

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    34. A hive-shaped sconce to install if you feel like being a busy home improvement bee.


    Get it from Anthropologie for $148.

    35. A cactus humidifier, because your desk place doesn't have to feel as dry as a desert, even if you'd like it to look like one.


    Promising review: "This humidifier is absolutely adorable. I purchased it to put near my houseplants that needed some extra humidity. It looks adorable near them and I can already see a difference in my plants after just a weeks worth of turning it on once a day." —MeganFromLV

    Get it from Amazon for $14.89 (available in four colors).

    36. A DIY miniature bookstore model so you can finally run your own (very) small business.


    Promising review: "This model has been such an enjoyable build. As of now, I am not completely finished. Having put around 20 hours into it, I'd say I have another eight hours more to go. The pieces are all vibrantly pre-painted, with the exception of one large base piece. The glue and tweezers it comes with are perfect for the job. The cloth I had gotten for the couch was not large enough, but I improvised by using another color cloth (that also came with the kit) for the seat. The attention to detail in this little study is just first class. I even recognized books that I have read/purchased in the past within this model! I am not experienced at all with building wooden kits and I was still able to do this one perfectly with minimal struggle. I will certainly be buying more Robotime models in the near future, the greenhouse one is next :)!" —B.R.J.G.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (also available in an art studio or greenhouse).

    37. A pair of glass vases beautiful enough to steal the spotlight from any flowers you put in them.


    Get a pair from Amazon for $24.99.

    38. A holographic nail polish that shimmers so nicely in the sunlight, you might dunk all your other nail polishes right in the trash.


    Promising review: "This is liquid rainbow for your nails. I've found that with ILNP holographic polishes, as long as I use a good base coat and base color, I only ever need one coat of the holographic polish for good coverage (which is nice since the bottles are $10 a pop). The color lasts at least a week (with a good top coat) minimum, and the colors are truly lovely." —Nnanelle

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    39. A helpful book on superstitions that proves you really can judge a book by its cover.

    Urban Outfitters

    It has two covers!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98, Urban Outfitters for $19.99, or a local bookseller through Indiebound.
