    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four sizes).

    2. A cloud-shaped bath bomb that spits out RAINBOWS!

    3. A darling Groot planter/organizer sure to be your best friend in the whole galaxy.

    It comes with a lid if you want to use it for small stuff like paperclips but most reviewers use it as a pencil cup or planter.

    Promising review: "Cutest Groot ever! I use it as a pencil holder at work. It also comes with a cap so you can use it also for storage for small stuff (not necessary as a plant pot or pencil holder). Great gift for any age for home or office!" —Sophia

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. Avocado Smash — a fast-paced game to enjoy when running errands (buying toothpaste and soap online) has got you in the ~pits~.


    You need at least two players to play but there is no limit to the amount of players. Whoever is most obsessed with avocados goes first. You start by putting down cards and saying what number turn it is. Once you hit 15, start over. If a player puts down a number card and it matches the number they say out loud, everyone needs to place their hands in the middle. Last person to put their hand down has to take up all the cards. There are also guacamole, smash, and reverse cards to keep things interesting. The first person to get rid of all their cards wins.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my granddaughter. My granddaughters love to sit down and play board games every weekend and have a ball doing it. But this is a game changer. :) They got it out and were playing it in their room and I heard screaming and laughing and fun noises, coming from the room. It is a fast paced, easy to learn, very competitive game they absolutely loved. I have never heard this reaction from any game they played, and everyone of them had fun doing it. No exceptions. I think it is a great way to bring your family together for good quality time, and this will keep them off the devices for a while and bring everyone a bit closer together for moments of fun and memories. Get it! :)" —Millie The Writer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    My friend bought these and they look just as good IRL!

    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

    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).

    9. Trendy, pearl-covered barrettes you won't be able to clam up about.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $5.99.

    10. A book of 642 tiny things to draw sure to inspire you to get out there and practice doodling.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my very artistic 13-year-old daughter. She's forever asking, 'what should I draw?' I crossed my fingers when I ordered this, as we've tried many other books to inspire her that didn't. When I gave it to her, I was expecting a lukewarm response. However, as she thumbed through the book, she started giggling and smiling and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I even got a spontaneous hug. She ran to the door when her dad got home to show him the book. And I think that the 642 options may just keep her inspired for a few weeks! ;) Any book that can charm a 13-year-old girl is a keeper in my book!" —Fascinated viewer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    11. A wine glass holder so bath time can have its own happy hour.


    Promising review: "I love this thing! The suction cup is hardcore and it holds all kinds of things, and it's small enough to throw in my backpack. I put my cocktail cup in it at the hotel pool and was the envy of other guests. Guess whose drink didn't get tossed out by accident...mine." —Flippy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    12. 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.

    13. A set of fake rings for your nose or lip so you can try out an edgy look before committing to punching a hole in your body.

    Promising review: "These lipsticks are so cute, so magical. The color that mine settles on my lips is subtle and not very dramatic. It almost gives me the feeling of wearing lip balm, which is my go-to for all things lips, so this was perfect!" —Daisy L. Alvarez

    24. A box of Japanese snacks to mix up your snacking when the same brand of popcorn every week is starting to get old.

    Promising review: "I loved trying snacks from the other side of the world. Overall a decent variety and well worth it to try something new and fun. Shipped pretty fast, too!

Just clean the window, peel off the back, position the cling, and then use a credit card to firmly transfer the design to the glass. Looks great on my 4Runner and I love the message it conveys." —Tekkiechikk

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99.
