Promising review: "Not only is this book easy to read (just like the author's blog), but the tips and advice are out of this world. Yes, a lot of the brands that she calls her 'basics' are expensive, but go to any store or boutique and you can find similar styles for less. My new year's resolution has nothing to do with fitness, but rather upgrading my style and skincare/makeup routine, and this book was an awesome beginner's guide." —tatjana abellGet it on Amazon for $18.81.

13. A set of just-add-tomato-juice Bloody Mary mixes for throwing brunch at their place.

Promising review: "Demitri's is the key ingredient in our favorite 'Red Beers' that we can usually only get at Red Robin restaurants. As a bartender for many years, I find it also makes the most superior tasting Bloody Mary! This mix is nearly impossible to find in any local store, so I decided to search Amazon to purchase some as a gift for my significant other. He was pleasantly surprised to receive it because he could finally enjoy his favorite 'Red Beers' at home. I foresee this bottle lasting a long time, since you only need a couple tablespoons of this concentrated seasoning mix combined with your choice of V-8 or tomato/clamato juice. Great value for the money and it stores longer as a concentrate (vs. a traditional Bloody Mary mix)." —Brianna RevardGet the pack of four on Amazon for $32.25.
