amzn.to

Promising review: "I love my stingray slippers. They are absolutely hilarious. My cats are terrified of them and think they're actually animals. I can't take them seriously when I put them on. I'm so glad I decided to buy these glorious majestic sea flapflaps." --Emle Rosencrance

Price: $15.99+. Available in 36 different animals/designs.

2. These Gin & Titonic ice trays that shape ice cubes into tragic little ships and icebergs.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I am appalled at how insensitive this product is to Leonardo DiCaprio's family. To see the realistic ice ship crash off the glacier in my gin was brutal. To make matters worse, the ship melts and disappears into a sea of gin as if the event never happened." --Java

Price: $5.50

3. A puppet theater complete with red curtains, a showtime clock, and chalkboard marquee.

amzn.to

Promising review: "This puppet theater was a HIT! It is large enough for an adult to fit behind to put on the show easily. It has real cloth curtains that can be tied back or pulled to the sides for easy viewing. The clock you see on the bottom has hands you can move to show the time of the next show. The very bottom of the theater is a chalkboard where you can write whatever you please. I like how sturdy the theater was after we assembled it. The assembly itself took maybe 30 minutes, and I am not exactly what anyone would call handy, so for someone that works with stuff like this it would probably take half that time." --Michelle

Price: $55.19

4. A tortilla-patterned swaddle blanket that transforms your tiny human into a tightly-wrapped burrito.

amzn.to, amzn.to

Promising review: "This swaddle blanket was the perfect gift for my best friend's newborn! The tortilla print is very realistic and the material is super soft and nice quality. I thought the price was a bit steep, but we were so happy with it when it arrived that we didn't care about the price anymore. If you're looking for a super unique baby gift, you won't be disappointed with this one!" --Elaine Dallas

Price: $47.99. Available in tortilla, egg roll, and sushi.

5. A camo beer holster for showing up to parties armed and ready.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I was forced to order this for my boyfriend because he is a dork. He loved it. He's a grown man, and it made him happy, so I am giving it 5 stars. His friends were jealous, they are grown too. Quality is great!" --Ocean Rea

Price: $6.69. Also available in 12-pack.

6. A 27-piece kids' chef set for your Bobby Flay-to-be.

amzn.to

Promising review: "This is a great quality set! My daughter loves cooking with Mommy even more now that she has her own cookware. We were going to get an Easy Bake Oven, but my husband suggested this. I'm glad he did! This set will last a long time. Now Mommy is gonna need to upgrade HER cookware, lol!" --Mrs_Rowe5

Price: $47.99

7. A scratch-off map for anyone conquering the world one destination at a time.

amzn.to

Promising review: "My 15-year-old daughter has just started her journey in this world as an international traveler. She wanted something to mark off the countries she's visited, and this is a great alternative to marking a traditional map with pins (we didn't want a bunch of pins in the wall). Visually it's very appealing." --Sparkat

Price: $22.99

8. A mildly evil-looking octopus mug for the marine enthusiast.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I bought this because I saw it on an episode of Criminal Minds (Garcia was carrying it around). I had to have it! I'm so glad I bought it. It arrived quickly and the box it came in was equally adorable. I love this mug so much I'd get a whole set of them." --Adrianna

Price: $15.17

9. A Peter Rabbit cupcake decoration kit for the Beatrix Potter fan.

amzn.to

Promising review: "My 4-year-old requested 'Peter Rabbit cake' for her birthday. I showed her this kit, and she was happy and excited at the idea of having birthday cupcakes. It was so easy, she was able to participate, and she absolutely loved them. I even kept most of the cardboard characters to attach to new toothpicks if she ever wants to make more later on. I'm sure she will; she really loves all the Beatrix Potter stories and characters! It was relatively easy to just pull them off of the toothpicks before eating the cupcakes. Much easier than trying to decorate a Peter Rabbit birthday cake!" --Clay Pro

Price: $13

10. A very le fancy pair of opera glasses for enjoying the show no matter the view.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I have to say, these binoculars were everything we wanted and more! I think it's an excellent gift or even a personal purchase if you have tickets to an event and you want to ensure a great view from any seats. They look good too (of course, not that I have a lot of experience, but for my tastes--simple, elegant, and color preferences--this hit on all points). Great purchase and seems like a great deal here as well." --RK

Price: $18.91

11. Odense marzipan candy dough for cake decorators and raw ingredient-eating savages alike.

amzn.to / Via germandeli.com

Promising review: "Shipped extremely fast and tastes wonderful. I was able to make beautiful fruits for decorating a lovely cake. What else is there to say about this marzipan other than 'yummmm.'" --Dottie

Price: $7.81

12. A Katana Samurai sword gearshift knob for the ultimate in defensive driving.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I love the way it looks! It has a nice weight to it if you want something that feels sturdy and looks beautiful. I haven't had any issue with the Tsuka-Ito (handle wrapping) moving around or coming off. It's a great piece and a nice eye catcher (I had someone leaning halfway out the window at a drive-through to see it and compliment it). Definitely recommend picking one of these up if you're into samurai or Japanese art and culture!" --GabeWBrooks

Price: $48.99. Available in seven colors.

13. This Remington ceramic styling wand that gives hair bouncy, effortless waves.

amzn.to, amzn.to

Promising review: "I read a review on here that said, 'Curls that will make you want to slap your Momma!' Well I walked around saying that all day after I curled my hair with this wand. I would have paid $100 for this!! It really is amazing and easy to use. I used it at a wedding this weekend to fix 4 girls' hair and it stayed hot and worked perfectly! I also fixed my hair on Friday morning and was able to rock it until Sunday!! The curls were amazing. I got compliments left and right!!" --Alexander M. Barry

Price: $22.06. Available in 1-1.5" and .5-1".

14. Jordan's sugar-free Skinny Syrups that put an end to dumb, boring coffee.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I thought I'd give it a try since I am trying to be calorie/sugar-conscious. I wasn't expecting much because I have tried several different sugar-free syrups and they all left that nasty aftertaste. Somehow, Jordan's has figured out a way to surpass my expectations with this syrup! I will be buying these in a few different flavors for my morning lattes!" --Monicka

Price: $9.99. Available in 13 flavors.

17. A seven-pound whole wheel of sheep's milk Manchego.

amzn.to

Promising review: "This cheese is superb. Twelve months of aging adds just the right kick to its nutty undertones. My guests often comment that it is the best cheese they have ever tasted. I concur." --Robert

Price: $78.98

19. These BPA-free nylon claws for pulling pork and chicken and/or fighting people off your pulled pork and chicken.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I own a BBQ food truck and we sell brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken, smoked sausage, and burgers. I was looking for a faster way to pull pork. I looked at those shredders you attach to a drill, but they look like they would turn the product to mush. I brought these Bear Paws and went to pull 30 lbs of Boston Butt. What used to take 45 minutes was done in less than five. No waste. These paws do a great job of integrating the fat in with the meat. I could not be happier. As a BBQ man for 30 years, I would recommend these." --Michael K. Powell

Price: $12.95. Available in six colors.

20. A sterling silver cameo ring for those who love the vintage look.

amzn.to, amzn.to

Promising review: "The picture doesn't do this justice, just like the other reviewers said! IT IS AMAZING! I have been looking for a vintage cameo ring, but being a college student and having a low budget on jewelry, I never found one I could afford. When I saw this, I had to buy it! I am so glad I did! I am tempted to buy a second just in case I lose it. If you love cameos as I do then you should just buy it. Great addition to a cameo collection!" --emma

Price: $28.54

21. And a four-piece stubby tool set for tiny hands or big hands in tiny spots.

amzn.to

Promising review: "I actually got these for my 3-year-old son for Christmas for his 'little man' toolbox. They're perfect! Also, if I need to borrow any tools, they work for grown-ups too. Hope now he'll stop using my tools and losing them!" --Katherine Green

Price: $12.16
