I’d say this one is one of the stronger candles that I actually like. It’s not weak, but it’s not overpowering. It’s very present, but relaxing. Cozy nights is perfect for cozy nights. Perfect for fall and winter vibes. This is one of my top three favorite candles!" —TargetMerdi

It's refreshing, cooling, and you kind of want to eat it... okay maybe not, but it does smell incredible. As for cleaning properties I felt like my face was squeaky clean and even with very sensitive skin I didn't have any reaction, which is always a worry with products like this. I will definitely be buying more of these for Christmas gifts, they would make the perfect gift bag addition." —Ambercd035

    Promising review: "Surprised by how much I loved these. I have been an Eos ball user for quite some time now, they are so much better than any 'stick form' I have ever tried. Until now, I think my favorite feature is how to move the lip balm up. You have to actually take the cap off to move it up so you can put it in a pocket and not worry about it getting ruined. Awesome!" —Reviews4u

    Promising review: "If you wear your hair up high, you need this in the winter! Perfect for a top bun or pony. It's thick and durable, yet stretchy and comfortable.

    Promising review: "These gloves are perfect, and I really like how they aren't too big and bulky! I can still type on my phone and move easily around in them as if I wasn't wearing any gloves. The quality is very good and after taking my dog on a 45-minute walk in 25-degree temperatures, my hands still remained toasty! Highly recommend." —Megan L.

    26. A Catan dice game that's the cuter and smaller version of the larger (and longer) strategy game — any Catan diehard is gonna love this modified on-the-go version.


    Promising review: "I bought this as a stocking stuffer for my husband. He is a big fan of the full version of Catan. I am not that big into board games, so when I saw this I thought it would be a perfect compromise for us. We both ended up really enjoying this game. The instructions are easy to understand and you can play a game in about 30 minutes. I definitely recommend this for people who like simple strategy games, and for those who don't want to commit hours to playing the full version." —SaraMarie
