    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A scratch-off friendship adventure book with 50 challenges that'll hold your attention much longer than a Seamless meal and your 20th New Girl rewatch.

    The Adventure Challenge

    Challenges range from $0 to $50, but you can always change things up to fit your budget. "Adventures" include fashioning your own slip n' slide, making s'mores and then eating them inside of a blanket fort, and baking a cake while some of you are blindfolded.

    Before you scratch off a challenge, you can read the key to see roughly how much it'll cost to complete, what time of day you should do it, and how long it'll take. Each entry also has room for you to write a small blurb about your experience and paste in a picture.

    Promising review: "I have been doing these adventures with some of my friends and have enjoyed every one of them so far! We still have many adventures left to scratch off and we can't wait! I hope there will be a volume two friend's adventure book out here when we finish with the first book! It would be wonderful to continue the adventures!" —Jeni

    Get it from The Adventure Challenge for $39.99+ (also available in couples, family, and solo editions).

    2. A HyperChiller beverage cooler that allows you to turn hot coffee into iced coffee in 60 seconds flat. Just make a promise with yourself — that you'll fill the container with water and keep it in your freezer so it's always ready when you need it.

    The dishwasher-safe container can also be used to cool chill tea, juice, wine, or whatever else you feel like drinking. No water comes into contact with your beverage, so you don't have to worry about dilution, either.

    Promising review: "I am an avid (i.e. daily) iced coffee drinker, but I have been extremely hesitant to make my own iced coffee at home because I didn’t want the bitter flavor from two-day old coffee or the watered-down nature of just adding ice to coffee. Thanks to the HyperChiller, I have now found a solution!!! The HyperChiller worked like a CHARM today!!! I was able to create my own iced coffee directly from my coffee maker in the comfort of my own home. I guarantee this item will be used frequently! Great job!" —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon $24.99.

    3. Or a French press tumbler for the caffeine aficionado who's always running behind. With this insulated mug, you can brew your coffee or tea right from the car, office, or even Target parking lot.

    the two-piece silver tumbler and black lid

    The portable coffee maker is super simple to use. Just add ground coffee and hot water to the outer tumbler, wait three minutes, and then insert the inner press and push down like you would a normal French press. A built-in micro filter traps your grounds at the bottom of the cup so you won't suck up any bitter bits.

    Promising review: "I was given this mug as a gift and I use it daily. It's the best thing since sliced bread. It's easy to use, cleans up in a second, is well insulated, and makes a great cup of coffee (actually two cups). I recently returned from an extended stay in Guatemala. My favorite things I had while there were my hiking boots and this press. Every morning fresh brewed Guatemalan coffee. Buy this for yourself, and as gifts. Yours friends will love you forever no matter what you do to them in the future :)" —U Know Who

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in seven colors).

    4. A touchless vacuum you can sweep debris right into. No more song and dance with your dust pan trying to brush up every last speck of dust.

    Promising review: "Received as a wedding gift and LOVE this thing! If the marriage doesn't work out, I'm keeping this item for sure. Had no idea I even needed this until it was plugged in and started using it. Would definitely recommend." —Shaun

    Get it from Target for $99 (available in two colors).

    5. A canvas cup holder made to cuddle your iced coffee on your walk back from Starbucks. If you drink iced bevvies year-round (sorry, but it's the only way to go), it'll keep your fingers from freezing.

    Dreamy Daisy / Etsy

    Dreamy Daisy is a small accessory shop based out of Washington, D.C. Check them out for handmade canvas backpacks, spa headbands, scrunchies, and more.

    Promising review: "The product is super cute and fits cups perfectly!!! I bought this for my coworkers and now I need to order one for myself." —Wendy

    Get it from Dreamy Daisy on Etsy for $15.99+ (available in four colors and sold individually or in sets of two, three, or four).

    6. A finishing stick that looks like a lil' mascara wand, but it's actually for the hairs on your head! If flyaways are something that bug you, give your hairline a good swipe and watch them be tamed without a fight.

    The top of a person's head before and after using the hair-finishing stick. Before using the stick, there is a lot of frizz. After using the stick, the hair is slicked back.

    Or if you have textured hair, a 24-hour edge tamer (but reminder: no one has to lay their edges — it's a personal choice!).

    Promising review: "Seriously, how on earth does this work?? I have tried everything to get my baby hairs that never really grew back from chemo to lay down and nothing worked. This product works. I mean, it WORKS. So, in the picture I uploaded, the hair that is sticking up on the left side of my head (right side on the picture) is what I am talking about. You can see that there's a good bit of it and that it basically just stood almost straight out. Not anymore. Not with this finishing stick. And it doesn't make your hair crunchy or shiny, either. Y'all, I'm serious! This product is simply amazing." —Liesl McQuillan

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    7. A monthly Japanese snack subscription so you can try out different versions of popular candies like Sake Kit Kats and Cherry Pocky, as well as traditional treats like Yamato Shrimp Crackers and Yakisoba Taro.

    Barwood Shop / Etsy

    The handmade wooden clothespins come from Barwood Shop, a custom home decor shop in Adirondack, New York.

    Promising review: "OMG! So much fun. Unique and functional! Easy to order, arrived as advertised and on time. Made everyone who has seen it smile! I call that a win :-)" —Doris Morgan

    Promising review: "This is the best invention ever! I’m a sauce queen and this allows me to have sauce in my car without wasting it! Whoever invented this knows my love language!" —Quintana

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $10.25+ (available in three colors and packs of two, four, six, and 10).

    10. A Bearaby weighted blanket that looks like it was knit with needles the size of those jumbo novelty pencils we all clamored over in elementary school.

    The knit weighted blanket in midnight blue

    Pro tip: For the most therapeutic effect (increased melatonin, decreased cortisol, and less stress/anxiety), go for a blanket that is roughly 10% of your body weight. It doesn't hurt to go heavier, but it does take some time to get used to, so give it a few days!

    Promising review: "I — I should say we — have never slept better. My wife of 60 years and I are in love again. This time with our Bearaby Cotton Napper. It's hard to explain the comfort, warmth, and secure feeling our Napper provides. We have two Nappers next to each other to cover every inch of our CA King bed... head to toe, side to side. The Napper is also a work of art aesthetically. Where were you 60 years ago Bearaby?" —Michael M.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249+ (available in three weights and nine colors).

    11. An onion holder so you can dice away without any fear of losing a digit. Yes, I've watched Gordon Ramsay YouTube explainers on how to do it without, but there's just a disconnect between my head and my hand.

    Newness Focus on Stainless Steel

    Promising review: "I dice almost all my onions, so I'm exposed to open onion (and the tear inducing gasses) every time I have to switch angles for a different cut. Then the onion starts falling apart on me so I have to use more of my hand on the onion and cut at a weird angle while not chopping off my thumb! This thing solves all that. I can get all three angles without moving my hand and without the onion falling apart. This minimizes the time I have with exposed gasses which means no crying! (OK, maybe not NO crying. Some of these dang onions are noxious! But definitely minimal crying.)" —Ashley Cleveland

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    12. A blueberry muffin eyeshadow palette with 16 buildable blue and neutral shades that'll make you into a straight-up snack (though don't ever think you weren't already 🧁).

    BH Cosmetics

    Promising review: "I haven’t put this palette down since it arrived on my doorstep. The mattes are extremely pigmented and show up nicely on my brown skin. The peach pastel shade requires some build up but she still shows up to the party. Metallics are smooth and apply nicely with the finger. Colors do not fade throughout the day. It’s bomb!" —Rozalyn R.

    Get it from BH Cosmetics for $18.

    13. A foldable cutting board that'll help you transfer chopped-up veggies to your pot or pan and save you from the torture that is having to sweep them up because your dog is decidedly not into carrots.


    Promising review: "These are the most amazing cutting boards! It is so handy to be able to slice, dice, chop, and then fold it up and pour into a bowl. I love them and have them in three sizes!" —C. Whitten

    Get it from Amazon $14 (available in seven colors).

    14. A two-tier pistachio pedestal designed to give the king of nuts the respect they deserve.

    The pistachio pedestal with whole pistachios in the top tier and shells in the bottom tier
    Uncommon Goods

    The upper tier of the solid wood design holds 8 ounces of pistachios and the pieces come apart for easy cleaning. To keep the maple in tip-top shape, the seller advises giving it a once-over with mineral oil or beeswax wood conditioner every few months.

    Promising review: "The Pistachio Pedestal is my 'go-to' present for my hard-to-gift family and friends. It's handsome as well as functional, and it never fails to get compliments when it's out on a table. I love the craftsmanship and two-level design, and it makes cleaning up the empty shells a breeze. It's also a great container for snacking on other types of nuts, or edamame (soy bean pods), too! I have one myself, and I've given this to others multiple times, and it's always appreciated and well-used. A winner!" —Early Bird

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $48.

    15. A smart basketball that connects to your phone or tablet so you can take daily live and on-demand classes from the comfort of your own home — even if you (like me) don't have any outdoor space.


    The smart ball only requires about 6 feet of space and once it's connected to your device, you'll be able to track your movements and train via on-screen interactive drills. And just so you know, DribbleUp also has smart medicine balls and soccer balls.

    Get it from DribbleUp for $99.99+ (available in basic and superstar options).

    16. A pair of highly reflective running/cycling socks so there's no missing you at night — even if you're moving at Flash-like speeds.,

    The moisture-wicking socks keep your tootsies nice and dry and the manufacturer says they're guaranteed to last over 50 wash cycles.

    Promising review: "I bought these for their reflective properties in the event one my bike rides extends into the night. They have been great for rides and really comfortable. The first time I was out at night and a car's headlights hit them, they lit up like a supernova. Blinding! I'm about to place a third order. I just wish they offered more colors." —KAM

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes M–XL and in five colors).

    17. A bag of grain- and gluten-free cookies that are paleo- and keto-friendly and made without dairy, palm oil, refined starches, sugars, or even Stevia. Basically, if you're a highly allergic person, these babies may give you an avenue to safely enjoy sweets again!

    Hu Kitchen

    Hu's cookies come in four ~delectable~ flavors: chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, peanut butter, and ginger snap.

    Promising review: "These cookies are the real deal! Grain free, real ingredients and packed with flavor. I'll be honest, I'm kind of picky when it comes to grain-free cookies, but these checked all the boxes and more. Each bite was crunchy and delicious. Way to go Hu! (Virtual high five)." —Amanda

    Get them for $13.50+ (available in packs of three or six bags).

    18. A Hunt A Killer subscription perfect for anyone who's always upset when the murder on Unsolved Mysteries goes... unsolved. With this monthly kit, you can do their own detective work decoding ciphers, piecing together timelines, and going through a victim's personal effects in order to get to the bottom of the case.

    The Hunt A Killer box with all of its contents displayed around it, including newspaper clippings, case files, a magnifying glass, a map, photos, and more
    Hunt A Killer

    Hunt A Killer currently has nine different box sets which ship in six monthly installments and seven all-in-one premium kits which can be completed in a single night. Themes include the Blair Witch experience (self-explanatory), Baker's Dozen (players have to figure out which cooking show contestant plans to poison the judges), and The Woods (a paranormal investigation in which you have to find out how a young woman has been afflicted by an ancient evil).

    Get it from Hunt A Killer for $25+/per month (you can buy a one-time box or six- or 12-month subscription).

    19. A vertical chess board for those who struck up an obsession with the game after bingeing The Queen's Gambit.

    Uncommon Goods

    If people in your household choose to play in passing, there's also a special marker that indicates the last move made so your opponent can pick up right where you left off — even if you're not in the room.

    Promising review: "My son makes a move then the next person through his room moves — thanks to the piece that marks when you stop, this game can be played for months and NEVER GET KNOCKED OVER! Love it!" —Mhickerson

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $95+.

    20. A monthly STEM subscription box that encourages users to problem solve and innovate with hands-on projects curated for their age group.


    KiwiCo has eight different developmentally-appropriate options from the Panda Crate (ages 0–24 months) to the Eureka Crate (ages 14–104). Foundational boxes help your baby identify shapes, stack blocks, and learn other basics while the most advanced crates include projects like engineering your own articulated desk lamp or pencil sharpener.

    Promising review: "Kiwi crates have been an excellent addition to our homeschool curriculum. My kids cant wait until the boxes arrive each month. I love that each box comes with a book to supplement the lesson and project. Some boxes come with several activities, which even give us the ability to spread out projects throughout a few days. KiwiCo crates take the planning out of hands on activities for the parents, and make for fun, educational, and hands-on time together." —Logan A.

    Get it from KiwiCo for $16.95+ per month (available in one-, three-, six-, and 12-month subscriptions).

    21. A portable paw washer because you *just* completed your spring cleaning and you'll be damned if your dog tracks muddy prints all over your freshly Swiffered home!,

    The nifty gadget comes in multiple sizes that work for pups as small as a miniature dachshund and as large as a golden retriever.

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini goldendoodle that is prissy about her paws, and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking into the camper was driving me CRAZY. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in sizes S–L and six colors).

    22. An effervescent mineral soak that relaxes and soothes muscles with 20 mg of hemp CBD, Epsom salt, and meadowfoam seed oil. Basically, the ingredient list = pure, all-natural zen.


    Promising review: "I had no idea a bath bomb could do so much! I’ve been a lover of Lush bath bombs for years because they smell good and they’re pretty, but I never felt that they left my skin soft or relaxed after. THIS is an absolute game-changer. It releases an oil in the water that softens and hydrates the skin like no other. It smells refreshing like eucalyptus which I love! The only thing I don’t like is it leaves the water clear, so I like to add another colored bath bomb or bubble bath. The CBD is subtle, but definitely there. I slept so good that night! I will definitely make this a staple in my monthly self-care night." —becky990

    Get it from Sephora for $16.

    23. A Friends mug you can ~pivot~ to show off your favorite side: the iconic yellow frame or the classic show logo. Unforch, it doesn't come with refills at Central Perk.

    Get it from Firebox for $15.99.

    24. A long distance connection bracelet that allows you to send your loved one a lil' squeeze (in the form of a vibration) whenever you're missing them.

    Uncommon Goods

    The bracelets also light up with your choice of color and the accompanying app allows you to share messages and pictures in a safe, encrypted way. The built-in batteries last up to four days and once it's time to charge them, you can do so easily with the included USB charger.

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I aren't in an LDR, but we both suffer from anxiety and let me tell you, these bracelets were practically made for our relationship! I get very busy, I don't really use my phone so I don't text a lot. The bracelets really help in those moments when I don't want to text, or when I really need his hugs and support. It's the closest thing I have to feeling his touch." —KittyKen

    Get a set of two from Uncommon Goods (available in four additional band colors) for $98 or Amazon for $108.

    25. A necklace layering clasp that will eliminate your need for 20 extra minutes every morning just to sort out your accessories. With the Necklet, you just attach your three necklaces of choice, and then let the magnetic clasp work its magic. Plus, you don't have to worry about tangles!

    Necklet was founded by Ricki Hansen, a digital marketer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The company is now run by Hansen and her sister Stacie, a fashion blogger and graphic designer, and is part of Amazon's Launchpad program.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried the off-brand cheap ones and I can honestly say this is so worth the price. I wear multiple necklaces all the time, some very heavy necklaces at that and the cheap ones were causing the magnets to separate and fall off my neck. This one is by far the best! The design is smart and foolproof. The magnet is VERY strong, much stronger than the cheap replicas. There’s even a little click mechanism that secures the magnet in place. I’m sold and definitely happy I splurged for this over the cheap ones.... beyond worth the price."Cecelia

    Get it from Amazon for $42 (available in three finishes).

    26. A lip balm-filled PopSockets PopGrip so you can keep your pout moisturized on the go. (Just be sure your hands are clean before you go dipping a finger in there!)


    PS: The lip balm is refillable so once you run out, you can order a replacement pod instead of a whole new PopGrip.

    Promising review: "Love the convenience of having lip balm at my fingertips, and the watermelon flavor is great. The balm is a nice consistency, too. I plan on stocking up on spares/refills." —Poeposition

    Get it from PopSockets for $15.

    27. A pair of scented shoe deodorizers because if you've ever owned a pair of Chucks, you know the ungodly scents they'll inevitably harbor.

    The banana-shaped deodorizers half inserted into a pair of tennis shoes

    These shoe deodorizers last upwards of six months and they dispense a perfume of lavender, lemon, patchouli, and tea tree all the while. The coolest part, though, is they gradually turn brown — just like real bananas!

    Promising review: "I keep my climbing shoes in my car and the stench was literally ruining my life. No matter how much I sprayed Febreze or scrubbed my shoes nothing helped. This product is a lifesaver!" —KYM22

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

    28. An all-in-one measuring cup that not only frees up space in your cupboard, but saves you from having to do any tricky fraction or decimal conversions. Look, for a long time, I only had a 2/3-cup measuring cup and my English major self was in a *world* of hurt.


    It's dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Measurements include: 1 cup, ½ cup, 1/3 cup, ¼ cup, 2 tbsp, 1 tbsp, ½ tbp, 1 tsp, ½ tsp, ¼ tsp, 120 ml, 80 ml, 60 ml, 30 ml, 15 ml, 7.5 ml, 5 ml, 2.5 ml, 1.25 ml.

    Promising review: "First of all, I gotta say I don’t cook much and if there’s something I hate after cooking is having to wash all the bunch of utensils I have to use once I use them. This cube has been amazing, I don’t have to wash a million utensils over and over, it’s very easy to use, easy to clean and it’s very handy to use for when I’m meal prepping for the week. I bought this out of curiosity and ended up enjoying it a lot. If a regular guy like me is enjoying it, I’m sure it would be a great tool for people who cooks or bakes in a regular basis." —Daniel Matajira

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    29. A spinning makeup brush cleaner to eliminate caked on foundation, bronzer, and blush with très minimal effort. Plus, it's a bit like a science experiment, and who doesn't like that?


    What's included: one brush spinner brush, two spindles, one spinner bowl, one splash guard ring, eight flexible brush collars, and one collar stand.

    I (Chelsea) have one of these and my brushes have seriously never been cleaner. All you have to do is fill the bowl halfway with water and brush cleanser, attach your brush to whichever collar fits, dip it into the water, and turn the spinner on. I found there's a *bit* of a learning curve to using it (you have to hover your brush right at the top of the water and not fully submerge it), but once you get the hang of it, it's actually pretty fun. The best part, imo, is that you can spin your brushes almost completely dry! When I used to wash them by hand, I typically had to let them dry overnight before I could use them again but now they're ready to go in less than an hour.

    Promising review: "Works AMAZINGLY well! Had all my brushes clean and looking brand new in the time it normally would have taken to hand wash one brush. If you hate cleaning your brushes, then you need this product. So easy and fun! I only wish I would have bought this sooner!" —Tellie82

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    30. A pair of waterproof shoe booties for days when it's really coming down but you're just not in the mood to wear rain boots. Slip these bad boys on over your sneakers and you can keep your OOTD in tact.

    A person wearing the shoe covers over their sneakers

    Promising review: "I purchased the rain shoe covers for the rainy season in Florida. Grass is wet at times and I needed something to be able to slip on when I go outside. I love them. I now wear them everyday when I go to the dog park as they are very easy to rinse off. I actually bought another pair to keep in the house as my first pair stay in my car [and] they are referred to as my dog park shoes. A friend at the park was so impressed, bought herself a pair, too." —Deema

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes L–XL).

    31. A five-in-one cork that aerates, pours, and filters your wine then serves as a leak-proof stopper which extends the life of your bottle if you don't finish it in one go. (Though with the way things are going lately, that last use may be a moot point.)

    The wine corker plugged into a bottle of liquor laying on its side in the fridge

    The manufacturer says the BPA-free stopper fits most standard wine bottles.

    Promising review: "YOU NEED THIS! I love this wine corker. These do exactly as they say they will. When I got mine, I immediately took one out, put it on a bottle of wine and purposefully turned it upside down, shook it, and let it sit that way for 10 minutes. NO LEAKS! I was so happy...finally something to keep my wine from leaking. Not only did it not leak, but the aerator design allowed my wine to taste wonderful and stay fresh." —Mary B

    Get it from Amazon for $9.52.

    32. A Darth Vader device holder where you can prop up your phone or PS4 controller so you never lose them in the couch again.

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for my brother who loves Star Wars and all things gaming. It’s sturdy and holds almost anything while looking like a collectors item." —bbbbailey

    Get it from Urban Outfitters or Amazon for $24.95.

    33. A handmade cracker cushion that appeals to the same part of me that loves Mini Brands. Yes, it's literally the ~complete opposite~ in terms of scale, but the extreme proportions are just as delightful.

    Kashima Pet / Etsy

    The handmade cushions come from Kashima Pet, a shop that sells mostly — you guessed it! — pet goods, but also some adorable rugs, blankets, and pillows.

    Promising review: "They are just as cute as pictured! I love them, and they are so soft!! Very cleanly made/stitched!" —Danielle Amelia R.K.

    Get it from Kashima Pet on Etsy for $34+ (available in four sizes/shapes and two colors).

    34. A Thaw Claw for those times when mom asked you to take the chicken out of the freezer hours ago but you were so sucked into Sims 4 (recreating your neighborhood, naturally), that you totally forgot.

    a reviewer's photo of the thaw claw used to defrost chicken

    The gadget not only keeps your meat submerged, but the manufacturer says it also thaws it seven times faster than other methods!

    Promising review: "I am a stickler for properly defrosting meat after working in food service for years and this makes that process super easy and surprisingly quick! I've even convinced my father — a retired rocket scientist — that this is the best way to defrost." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in three colors).

    35. A farmhouse-style end table with a built-in speaker that operates COMPLETELY cord free 🙌🏻 You can even confuse your dog and answer phone calls through it.

    The speaker side table displayed next to sofa in a living room

    You can stream from any Bluetooth-enable device and the table's speaker lasts for 10 hours at a time. When it needs to be re-juiced, just use the included cable.

    Promising review: "This is a great speaker. It’s loud enough, but you can’t blast it to a painfully loud volume. A friend accidentally knocked it over on my concrete patio, and it didn’t hurt it at all, which impressed me. I use it as a speaker for my projector in my living room. I move it to the center of the room and it’s perfect, I don’t generally need to turn it all the way up. The sound is best if you are sitting at the same level as the speaker. It sounds better than my Sony sound bar. The battery lasts a long time, and the Bluetooth hasn’t disconnected on me yet." —Mike W

    Get it from Amazon for $193.66.

    36. A pair of leak-proof period leggings so you don't have to worry about stains or rogue pads whether you're working out or perfecting your couch potato form.

    Get them from Ruby Love for $49.99 (available in sizes XS–3XL and Juniors).

    37. A pod of hardboiled egg-holding penguins that'll help you prevent bounces and breaks. Load up your eggs, lower the entire thing into boiling water, and then pull it up when time is over. It can keep them safe in the fridge, too!

    The egg holder, which looks six little penguins connected by a handle

    Promising review: "After getting tired of slowly and carefully putting eggs in boiling water, AND still cracking about one out of four... decided to get this and I love it. Makes putting eggs in boiling water a breeze and looks great. Def catches the eye and made one friend laugh when she realized they were eggs. 😂" —Eugene

    38. A pair of pizza scissors so you can cut the best slice (you know — the one with the bubble on the crust) before your roommates/siblings get to it first.

    Promising review: "This review is dedicated to all the haters in my life who questioned why I wanted this for my birthday. I love pizza whether its frozen, fresh, or delivery, and replacing the pizza wheel/knife with this pair of pizza scissors has cut all of the frustration out of pizza. Dividing up slices has never been easier. It is insane how happy I feel every time I use these scissors because not only do they make pizza dividing easier, they are also just fun to use. Even if you only cook a pizza twice a year, I still say buy these scissors. You'll never go back to the wheel or knife. These scissors are my FAVORITE product in the kitchen. I've been using them for six months now and I've had no problems so far with them. They are super easy to use thanks to the spring that keeps them open. The flat bottom below helps get the scissors under the pizza, too. It's all around a fantastic product." —Lisa

    39. A Froot Loops-inspired candle that will both delight and confuse all who see it. Since the soy candle comes in a real cereal bowl with a real spoon, it's quite the conversation starter.

    40. And a two-pack of handheld bag sealers you can use to cut and seal a variety of snack bags so your treats don't go stale. (I personally can't not finish an entire bag of Jax Cheese Curls in one sitting, so I don't need this, but power to those who have the strength to save some!),

    The portable sealers heat up on contact so there's no downtime before use. They also come with batteries so you can use them right away!

    Promising review: "I couldn't wait to see if these really worked. As soon as I received them I went to work sealing bags of opened chip bags. They worked! No more stale chips. They have a built in magnet, so I can keep them handy on the fridge. I am really impressed with them. No waiting time, no buttons to mess with. Just slide the protective cover away to expose the roller and run it across what you want to seal. Easy!" —Monica
