    Get it from PBarbArt on Etsy for $24+ (available in sizes XS–4X and custom color choices).

    2. A fun and beautiful board game where the point of the game is basically to become a thriving forest. *wistfully stares out of the window*

    A box with a tree on it that says Photosynthesis
    A game board covered in trees

    Basically you're growing trees. Each player starts with two. The trees absorb light and get light points, which can be used to disperse seeds. There is a "sun" rotating around the board, so players have to time and position everything properly to get the most sunlight.

    Promising review: "Don't be fooled by the beautiful artwork, or the adorable little illustrated animals hidden within the components, Photosynthesis is a vicious abstract strategy game, and it's probably the best use of thematic gameplay for any tabletop game in 2017, worthy of being equated with other top tier uses of theme in designing gameplay, such as Shadows Over Camelot, Blood Rage, and just about anything produced by Fantasy Flights." —Paul Bulger

    Get it from Amazon for $37.97.

    3. A pair of plush slipper socks to keep your paws nice and warm.

    16. An ironic Dracula garlic crusher ready to mince several cloves with a simple twist of his head. I'd wager this is easier to clean than a traditional garlic press AND it's cute.

    This little blood-sucker is 100% food-safe, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe!

    Promising review: "I was getting very tired of the garlic presses that turn garlic into a mush and require incredible force to mash the clove into unrecognizable oblivion. This is far easier and turns the garlic into pieces rather than mush." —C. Pearlman

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    17. Sponges that look like quaint embroidery, despite their blunt messages. It even comes with a suction cup frame for storage!

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99

    25. A mystical wireless phone charger for anyone who prefers fantasy over the sci-fi reality we live in.

    flat circular charger that lights up with runes when phone is on it

    Magic = unexplained science! This spell circle works with iPhones 11 and up, and Samsung Galaxys S8 and up.

    Promising review "Product works great, looks cool, gives my nightstand a bit of magical flair without being so ostentatious that it keeps me up at night unlike some other magic circle chargers. AFAIK the runes mean nothing, the only word I can make out along the outer circle is futharc, which is the name of the Norse rune alphabet and is comprised of the first six letters of said alphabet. Most likely the rest of the letters are merely the rest of the alphabet in sequence, the literal rune equivalent of 'ABCDEFG' and so on. Overall, a good find. I am satisfied." —Kevin
