    1. Iridescent flatware so you finally get rid of that one weird fork you just really hate for some reason.


    Promising review: "Even my sullen teenager was excited to taste the rainbow. A huge hit with everyone. I was especially glad to see that they weren't all the same color in places — one was much bluer than the others, and some were more gold than the rest. Love the variation. Now I can't go back to regular silverware." —Heather

    Price: $27.94

    2. A Foreo Luna Mini 2 to scrub away makeup, dirt, and oil with soft silicone bristles that vibrate with sonic pulsations. Wet it, move it over your face for a minute, and then marvel at your super clean skin.

    Promising review: "I was looking for something like this for a very long time, and nothing was as good as the Luna Mini 2. It's great for exfoliating, cleansing, removing makeup, and massaging the skin. It's also very hygienic." —JeanCL

    Price: $115.99

    3. An inflatable kayak so you can hit the water without having to worry about schlepping a huge boat to the water, or worse, figuring out where to store it.


    The kayak comes with two oars, an air pump, a repair patch, and has a weight limit of 400 pounds.

    Promising review: "We needed a raft to cross a small distance of ocean to visit an uninhabited island. We had never kayaked before and were nervous about the tides and current strength, but this raft was very secure and easy to assemble right on the beachside. It worked perfectly, and we can't wait to do it again this weekend!" —JodyS

    Price: $79.99 (originally $85)

    Promising review: I've been feeding my five-month-old using The Baby Bullet and my garden-grown veggies for about two weeks now. This product is really easy to use, quick, efficient, and simple to clean. Plus, it comes with two processing blades, so I was able to make my own cereal!" —Apangikas

    Price: $25.50 (available in eight colors)

    13. A non-skid pastry mat with built-in size charts, meaning you don't have to resort to just eye-balling it.

    Promising review: "This extra large storage bean bag easily fit 40 of my daughter's stuffed animals!! And there were about seven of them were oversized animals. There was one huge dinosaur that I thought for sure would not fit, but it did!! It still isn't filled to capacity. I'm very happy that her animals have a place to be stored, and that they're off the ground and done being kicked around. Now she also has a soft seat to watch television or play video games." —PapaSpice

    Promising review: "I love the way its consistency and stiffness change as you use it in different temperature water. It conforms well to all sorts of shapes and gets the gunk out of corners easily. Love the finger hole 'eyes.' Rinses perfectly clean so no awful odor lingers after you use it." —ArmyDoctorMom

    Price: $13.33 (for a pack of four)

Spray, give it a minute or two and rinse. The rust stains are gone!!! Other people must agree with me because every time I go to Walmart to buy it they are out of stock. I recommend this product." —Curlygirl59

The pump is lightweight and fits in one hand. The display is bright enough you can use it as a dim glowing light without it waking up anyone around you when you pump at night. The letdown mode is a huge help and the speed control is wonderful. This pump cut my pumping time down and doubled my output! I can't say enough good things about this pump!" —Lucy
