    leaf shaped bookmarks in light and dark green

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these bookmarks! Even though they are pretty small, they stay in the book, either opened or closed. They are really soft and rubbery, so they won't crack or break very easily. I can foresee these lasting for a long time. Since they come in a package of six, I can not only have one for my book for reading, but I can place these in the pertinent chapters that I am studying in my textbooks as well. They really come in handy for that! These cute, little sprouts were a great treat for the little that I spent on them!" —Aimée le Huitième

    16. A tortilla-shaped blanket for anyone who aspires to become the warm filling of a burrito.


    Promising review: "I bought one for each of my two teen nieces. They LOVE them. Anytime they come over for the weekend, they have their huge soft tortilla blankets with them to snuggle up in while we watch movies. They are incredibly soft, even after washing. The colors are very accurate and did not fade after washing. There has been no pilling, loose strings, or loss of density in the fibers. Which speaks volumes because these girls run around with them as capes and drag them all over the place with them. So they get washed frequently to say the least." —ShannonDaly

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (the tortilla blanket is available in four colors and four sizes. Plus, you can also get the blanket in pizza, waffle, and apple pie styles).

    17. A mini waffle maker that pops out little edible hearts that might show up your lopsided heart pancakes.


    Promising review: "Adorable — if not particularly practical — waffle maker for someone who doesn't need to churn out a big breakfast spread in limited time. I got this as a gift for my 12-year-old daughter, who is becoming exceptionally interested in cooking and baking. The waffle maker is adorable, so we got major points for that; it's also very easy to use, with no bells and whistles — not even a power switch. The iron plates are very nonstick, and hopefully will stay that way. For a family of four, we found the most efficient way to make waffles for everyone was to make as many waffles as we could as quickly as we could — two minutes or so will give you a pale but cooked waffle. Once you've stacked up a decent number of waffles, load them up into the toaster oven and you'll have a nice tall stack of hot, crispy waffles all at once. :-)" —K. Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (also available in round or pumpkin shapes).

    18. A funny stress toy for your best spuddy.

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome. My husband and I hide this around the house from each other and sometimes it takes months to find. How awesome is it to be able to yell out 'yes! I found the potato!' and have that make total sense?! Doesn't matter if we're having a little argument or not, we still get excited about it. Not the common use for a stress reliever, but we have fun playing our silly little game. 😊 Certainly keeps things entertaining." —TM

    Get it from Amazon for $6.50.

    19. An insulated heart or bear glass tea cup that will make your shared tea time that much cuter.


    Get the heart for $11.99 and the bear for $10.79+ (available in three styles) from Amazon.

    20. A Baby Yoda jigsaw puzzle and greeting card to match so they know you think they're the cutest thing in the galaxy.

    Amazon, HipHopNShop

    Get the puzzle from Amazon for $9.95 or the card from HipHopNShop on Etsy for $4.45.

    21. A tiny tin with huge fun inside — a puzzle game called Iota.

    hand holds small tin that says iota

    Promising review: "This game is a ton of fun! If you like puzzle/strategy games I would definitely recommend this! It's a game that two people could play so my wife and I love to play it! It takes a little bit to understand the rules, but once you do it's easy. I would definitely recommend it." —jstivers

    Get it from Amazon for $8.11.

    hand holds up open geode in front of box

    This kit comes with 10 breakable rocks.

    Promising review: "We’ve only opened the first rock but I’m already impressed. Normally these end up being duds but this one was really spectacular and large! My son is 4 and he’s excited to open the rest for his collection." —Heremeow

    Get it from Amazon for $21.24.

    24. A life-sized avocado that's not actually the green fruit we all know and love, but equally delicious chocolate!

    Get it from Target for $5.99.

    25. A three-pack of modeling dough from The Dough Project made with plant-based ingredients like organic wheat flour, sea salt, beets, chlorophyll, purple carrots, and more. The packaging is cute, the dough is easy to mold into shapes, and some shipments come with cool stickers — win, win, win!

    The Dough Project, Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    The Dough Project is founded by a preschool teacher in NYC. I've been using these jarred doughs for a couple weeks and lemme tell you: You don't have to be a kid to enjoy playing with them. They're super easy to mold and smooth into shapes, smell nice, and have cute illustrations under each lid. I can't recommend this stuff enough! The dough gets a little dusty and shriveled when left in open air (peep the caterpillar pic) but you can preserve your creations with a layer of Glossy Mod Podge.

    Get a pack of three from The Dough Project for $19.99 (available in four colorways).

    (If you'd prefer to mix up your own dough, get the DIY pack here.)

    26. A giant 1-pound bag of marshmallows for anyone who picks the boring cereal out of Lucky Charms. Don't blame them if they end up taking romantic selfies with the bag.

    Promising review: "Buying these charms was one of the best decisions of my life. The bag is twice the size of my head. The marshmallows are aesthetically pleasing and delicious. It's everything I ever wanted in a snack." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    27. Brain Freeze, a family card game that encourages the player to speak before they think. Each player picks a card that has an icon and prompt. If the icons match, the players have to rush to answer the other player's card to win the match., Amazon

    Promising review: "Brain Freeze is now one of my favorite games. I love that it's not embarrassing to play with your relatives like some of today's hit games. It was hilarious getting the Worst Present Ever Received card and having the gifter being right there and realizing after the fact!" —Lynn1230

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.
