1. Give your loved ones a retro-style hot dog toaster that's a one-stop shop for wiener cookin' and bun toastin'.

Promising review: "We LOVE that this makes AWESOME grill marks on the hot dogs!!! I read all the reviews before purchasing and I am shocked that no one mentions this! This is not simply a hot dog heater-upper! There is a BIG difference in using this versus a microwave. For one, the grill marks!" --ArtessiaPrice: $27.94. Also available in four-hot dog capacity and hot dog roller machine.

2. Make an art history major feel better about their decisions with these socks.

Promising review: "I purchased these as a gift for my teenage daughter, who is creative, interesting, and fun. Oh, and she likes fun socks. She LOVED these socks. Perhaps one of the best-received gifts of the last few years. She couldn't decide which ones she was going to wear first. The socks themselves are very nicely made and the artwork is very detailed. Such a good purchase." --LexiReviewPrice: $14.99. Also available in famous icons, polka dots, and cats.

3. Roast chickens and turkeys in a humiliating way with a set of marinade cooking cone steamers.

Promising review: "I originally purchased just the Sittin' Chicken steamer, but after using it the first time I immediately ordered the chicken and turkey combo so I would never be without this option for roasting poultry. The popular method has always been to use a can of beer for this type of cooking, but I like using fruit juices; the meat comes out with a moist and sweet flavor that's unattainable by other methods. For Easter this year I did a turkey on the grill (we have a wood pellet grill) with pineapple juice and beer in the Sittin' Turkey, and quickly discovered that I will need to make more turkey next year for this crowd. They loved it. I don't think I will ever go back to the old way of roasting poultry." --Nelson JohnsrudPrice: $18.99

4. Give your favorite Doctor Who fan a realistic TARDIS drinking vessel.

Promising review: "This mug is great. The design has all the details that we Whovians would notice. However, I must say I have one huge complaint. Every time I fill it with something and put the lid on, it vanishes and does not show up again for hours or even days. I've had to start making my cup of coffee a week before I want to drink it. Good thing the lid keeps the contents warm." --Ronald S. TouchetPrice: $17.45

amazon.com

Promising review: "I purchased this gift for my husband for Christmas last year and I am so glad I did. The package was great. I love the the little wooden bucket the cologne comes in; it looks great in our bathroom! This cologne smells AMAZING. I was so impressed. I get that little feeling where my heart skips a beat every time he wears it. All of his colleagues and our lady friends compliment him on the scent and guys have even asked him where he purchased it. It's definitely unique and a very manly smell, without being overpowering." --ShiloeRevae

7. Give someone adorable cacti they can't technically kill.

Promising review: "I LOVE these. They're super cute and all my friends love them too. You get six candles, all about tea-light size, two of each type of cactus. I haven't lit them but there is no scent. We're using them to decorate our coffee and end tables so we probably won't light them, but I seriously love them and they're so cute." --KatbugPrice: $7.99

8. Bestow an unbeatable meat stick sampler to the Ron Swanson in your life.

Promising review: "These meat sticks are so much fun and delicious! Between my husband and myself, we ate them all within a week.

I think these are great for teaching children to be open-minded about animals as food." --Marissa RodriguezPrice: $32.34

10. Give your beach-bound bestie the ultimate in snorkel technology.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This innovative mask is a great improvement over standard snorkeling kits because:

- you have a great, clear, panoramic view

- you can breathe (almost) freely through both your nose and mouth

- the mask never fogs up

- the stopper in the tube works flawlessly every time at keeping water out when you dive down (I was skeptical about this feature)

- any leak quickly drains aways and water does not accumulate in the mask

- you can snorkel for hours without needing to readjust or clear your mask." --ES

Price: $54.80+. Available in three colors, sizes XS-XL.

11. Give only professional dessert eaters this 4.5-pound vat of Reese's peanut butter sauce.

Promising review: "My wife has been looking for peanut butter syrup for ice cream for years. Not something with chocolate in it, just peanut butter flavor. It's really hard to find in stores, and we didn't even know it existed until I found it on Amazon. When I surprised her with it, she just about cried. If you are a peanut butter lover, this is definitely for you!" --T. IsaacPrice: $25.99

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I've had this flat iron for over two years and I love it. No shortages or anything! I've used it to make beautiful curls AND to get my hair bone straight. The plates are so much longer than any other flat iron I've seen or used. Heats up in 15 seconds and cuts off after an hour, so I never gave to worry when I'm rushing to school and forget to turn it off. I just love this!" --S. Pie

18. Give a horse head squirrel feeder to someone who has everything except a horse head squirrel feeder.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "So for years I have had an issue of not having a horse head that could feed squirrels. I would wake up in the middle of the night screaming in a cold sweat because the neighborhood squirrels did not have an appropriate feeder. I would comb through the latest copies of Squirrel Weekly looking for a solution. I just could not believe that someone had not seen this hugely underserved market. Wasn't anyone concerned about how squirrels were going to get food? Then, one day, out of the blue, this horse head feeder exploded into my life. At first I couldn't believe it, was this the answer to all of my squirrel questions? I immediately purchased 32 of them to hang all around my yard. My goal, a squirrel disco party. What would be better than that? Nothing, I say. This thing is amazing. It holds seeds, and peanut butter, and other fun things. I once saw two squirrels in it at the same time. Wow, was that amazing! Two squirrels sharing one horse head, a super species for sure! The neighbors love all of the squirrels I have brought to our yards." --TheMelMac

Price: $16.99+

19. Tell someone "your toenails are my priority" with a cute nail clipper set.

These also have a nice file on the inside, a nice feature for smoothing rough edges after clipping." --Lucy C.Price: $5
