Need a gift idea? Amazon has a section featuring products that people buy as gifts most often.

Here are some of the coolest and most useful products from the section this week:

1. This charming garden gnome massacre for landscaping enthusiasts.

Promising review: "Bought this for my dad last year and he still moves it around his yard and sends me pictures." —Teef

Price: $24.99

2. The Zeus Deluxe Beard Grooming Kit for your favorite lumbersexual.

Promising review: "For those of you saying that you don't need beard-specific shampoo and conditioner, god bless you; you're either incredibly lucky (in that your skin isn't as sensitive as mine), or you're dumb. With the help of the brush, shampoo, and conditioner, my beard has become very soft (which my girlfriend loves), and it is rid of all of the tangles and ingrown hairs. And the best was yet to come...the beard oil. It has made my beard shiny, but most of all, it has rid my face of all of the dryness, itchiness, redness, and irritation. My beard is growing well, looking good, and, best of all, it doesn't hurt! I have this kit to thank for all of that. I'm taking the time to write a review for this stuff, which says a lot because I NEVER write reviews." —Joey LeCompte

Price: $68. Also available in sandalwood.

3. A 2017 dog-shaming day-to-day tearoff calendar for commiserative furparents.

Promising review: "Everyone loved it. All pet owners have experienced what's in these pictures at least once, so we can all have a good laugh. Looking forward to the next one!!" —alaskaquilter

Price: $11.72. Also available as a book in paperback, hardcover, or Kindle.

4. A four-pack of Demitri's award-winning Bloody Mary Seasoning Mixes for your best brunch bitch or Bloody Mary snob.

Price: $31.50

5. A leopard fleece onesie for adults who are cold and practical but mostly sassy (Rarr!).

Promising review: "I am constantly the cold person in my family, no matter the temperature in my house. After receiving this as a gift from my fiancé, I had a hard time taking it off the next morning to get dressed for work. I will spend countless hours in this onesie...only a fraction of those being in public." —Mecha Becca

7. A Santaur ornament for someone as twisted as you.

Promising review: "Santaur far exceeded all my expectations; an otherworldly power seemed to emanate from his abs alone. My Christmas tree glowed brighter and didn't seem to require water anymore after Santaur was added to its branches, for the Santaur was the only nourishment it required." —Kelly

Price: $13.47

11. The official World of Warcraft Cookbook — with recipes like "Ironforge rations" and "Garr's limeade" — for the gamer that takes a break every once a week to eat something.

Promising review: "All my life in Azeroth, I've eaten many virtual meals. Now I've brought them home. The meals are easily explained, and even has a listing for specific dietary needs (gluten-free, vegetarian, etc.). This cookbook is a must for diehard WoW fans and chefs alike.

18. A super-affordable pack of seven TonyMoly face masks so friends and family can treat themselves.

Promising review: "I love sheet masks. Been using Karuna and Sephora ones for a while now, but they are so expensive for the results given. I was told to try an Asian sheet mask by a friend, and wow, huge difference! I've only used two out of this variety pack, but holy cow do they work so well!
