I was spending at least $6-$8 a week buying organic popcorn from our local grocer and there were always a ton of unpopped kernels on the bottom of the bag.

    Promising review: "The colors in the Cape Town Collection are bright and cheery and fun. If you need your Post-Its to stick out, these colors will do it. The paper is nice and thick (my marker showed through on the back side, but didn't bleed through to the next sheet) and they stick - and restick - very well! They even stick pretty well to non-paper surfaces, like a wooden frame around my cork board and the wall." –Semmie

    Price: $6.99 (originally $8.03)

    7. A rose quartz facial roller if they take their skincare routine very seriously. They'll feel extra luxurious using this after applying their fancy serums and moisturizers. (And you'll probably end up stealing it for your nighttime routine, too!)

    Promising review: "Love it! I heard about the benefits of beauty rollers and wanted to try one out but didn't want to pay the $60 price tag. Then I found this and I was super excited to try it.

    Promising review: "Folks, this spa has everything. First of all, it is an excellent mode of soaking those tired aching tootsies. It has massaging bubbles that caress your feet and relaxes them. The spa also heats up to add to the satisfaction. Being a retired runner and supervisor, I am no stranger to being on my feet for long periods of time. I would go home with feet aching so bad that I could hardly walk. I wish I had this spa in those days. It also features a spinning pedicure center. It's truly like getting a spa treatment at home." –greedygreg

    Promising review: "This appliance is very versatile as well. Anyone who's ever used a Keurig K-Cup system will know that this machine makes more than just coffee - all sorts of teas, hot cider, cocoa and even soup can be made in just one machine. The Keurig K-Duo has enabled me to get rid of both my old coffee pot and my tea kettle, thus freeing up space on my counter top." –anonymouse

    Promising review: "This Sunbeam Heated Fleece Blanket was exactly what I wanted! It's not too heavy and in fact, it's only about 1/4 inch thick, which is perfect! It's made of nice, soft (great quality) fleece that does not slide around on the bed. It stays put all night least for me it does, because I don't move around much. It heats up quickly and evenly." –Robin

    Promising review: "We LOVE our SodaStream. I always thought it was only for making soda/pop but then I realized we can make sparkling water also!

    26. A Fujifilm Instax Mini 7+ camera for capturing your cute moments whether you're on a vacation or just spending time on the couch. The best part is they'll have a physical copy of the photo instead of it just living on their phone.

    pink fujifilm instax instant camera

    Promising review: I was surprised at how lightweight this camera is and how well the shape fits in my hand. It turns on and off by pulling the lens forward which I like because I don't need to worry about it accidentally hitting an on and off button while I carry it in my bag. It has four settings that allow you to adjust to the light; one for indoor light, for cloudy lighting, outdoor bright light, and outdoor high bright light. It's a lot of technology for such a small camera! The camera includes batteries and a ten-photo refill. It was super easy to put together considering there was nothing to screw and unscrew." –Brit

    Price: $59 (available in five colors)

    27. A cast-iron skillet that will become their most-used kitchen tool because it allows even heat distribution so food will come out perfectly every time. Whether they're cooking steak on the stove or baking a skillet cookie in the oven, this will get the job done.

    Promising review: "This is the first cast iron pan I have owned but so far I am enjoying using it. Food doesn't stick and it is easy to clean. The pan, itself, is a high quality product and the price was very reasonable. I definitely recommend getting a cast iron pan versus a non stick product." –jan

    Price: $24.90 (originally $39.50)

    28. A Drop Stop car seat gap filler so they won't keep losing their phone or coins in that pesky little gap between the car seat and the center console.

    Promising review: "This is one of those 'Why didn't I think of that?' products. It solves a problem that everyone with a car has had: items dropped between the seats and center console. I bought two of these at a brick-and-mortar Walmart and was so happy, I ordered another eight sets for each car in the (extended) family online. Four sets have been installed so far in different model cars and each works perfectly." –WalmartCustomer

    Price: $12.88

    29. A brownie pan that makes 12 perfectly shaped brownies that all have those beautifully crispy edges. Gone are the days of fighting over who gets the corner brownies, because with this, they're ALL corner brownies!

I want to make little cakes out of them and buy the square cupcake liners. I definitely recommend to anyone! I also seen a castle cake using this pan as the blocks of the castle that I would like to try!" –missmary09

    Price: $12.99

    Promising review: "I can't believe why I didn't buy it before. It is 10x better than I thought. Every time I empty it I can't believe how much dirt it has cleaned. I'm probably going to have one Roomba all my life. Technology at its best. Not having one is living in the stone age era." –miriam

    Price: $224 (originally $249.99)

    31. A pair of slip-on sneakers with a memory foam insole perfect for anyone with a job that keeps them on their feet all day. Even after a 10-hour shift, their feet will remain pain- and blister-free.
