5. Julius the Monkey accessories by Paul Frank.

Had to have the wallet, keychain, bag, and stickers. And, of course, also the T-shirts and PJ bottoms.

6. The iPod transmitter that NEVER worked well.

Having an iPod was already a status symbol, but being able to play it in your car was NEXT level. The worst part was finding a radio station that could hold onto the signal.

9. Glow perfume by Jennifer Lopez.

In the early 2000s there was NO bigger or more fabulous star than J.Lo. She was larger than life! And while you knew you couldn't live her jet-set lifestyle, you could at least smell like her (to be honest, she probably didn't wear Glow).

11. Abercrombie & Fitch logo sweaters (that came with the faint smell of Fierce cologne).

A&F was THE IT store of the early 2000s teens, and you probably wanted everything from them. But, if you couldn't get your entire wardrobe from there, getting their hoodies and sweaters was the next best thing -- even if they were overpriced and the smell of Fierce never fully washed out.

14. Chunky Steve Madden shoes.

Probably your first ~designer~ shoe. And you thought these styles went with everything.

21. A pair of UGG boots.

Was there a more desired Christmas gift than UGGs? They practically screamed the PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT since they were meant to be worn in cold weather, plus they were a splurge item.

23. The Sims along with all its amazing expansion packs.

The worst part was the amount of memory the packs used up on your PC. That is if your computer wasn't crashing from all the viruses your LimeWire files gave it.

24. Juicy Couture EVERYTHING.

But in particular the velour tracksuit -- with "Juicy" written on the butt, of course.

28. Altoids Sours in your stocking.

Sure they scratched the top of your mouth like a piece of Cap'n Crunch cereal on roids, but they were tasty and a nice surprise to find inside your stocking...along with MONEY.

31. ...and of course you had to get Nintendogs along with your DS, 'cause it was just as cool as having a real pet.

Nintendogs may you RIP alongside all those Tamagotchis we neglected and had die on us in the '90s.
