    1. A pack of reusable mesh produce bags to make your trips to the grocery store pain-free (and by that, I mostly mean: no more wrestling with tear-off plastic bags).

    Promising review: "Really like that these bags are scannable at the checkout counter, and it's much handier to take my own produce bags β€” no need to elbow through other shoppers to get to the plastic bags, or track down the twist ties. I bought these out of guilt for wasting so much plastic, but find they're more convenient anyway. Drawstring works great to close the bags without being a hassle to get into later. liked these so much I bought a second set." β€”K. Horn

    Price: $12.97 (for a set of nine)

    2. A bourbon lip balm for anyone who prefers a scent trail of whiskey on their face at all times.

    Promising review: "Fantastic lip balm, I genuinely hate sweet flavored lip balms, and the plain ones are too boring; so this one is perfect. It smells of bourbon without coming off alcoholic. I had dry, chapped, and, frankly, gross lips when it arrived and now, two days later, I'm doing great. I also like the barrel shape β€” it's flatter and wider than more lip balms, so it better fits in my pocket." β€”Caitlin Egan

    Price: $7.79

    3. A mini video projector if you have an empty wall in your home and a void in your soul that MoviePass once filled.

    Promising review: "No more going to the movie theaters for my family β€” we will just get a movie from Amazon or Netflix and save the money for popcorn. This unit is quite small, but don't let that fool you. The possibilities of this device are endless. I highly recommend this item for anyone that wants a movie-theater quality image (in both scale and quality) without the cost." β€”Pete K

    Price: $69.99

    4. A Harney & Sons tea collection that'll expand your affinity for herbs.

    Promising review: "If you are like me, NOT a tea geek, knows nothing about tea, but likes tea, and does not want to spend money on something you've never tried β€” see why everyone raves about this PARIS tea. It really is lovely β€” yes, LOVELY β€” tea. Some flavors I like are: Tropical Green, Japanese Sencha, Raspberry Herbal (for iced tea), Orange Pekoe (for breakfast) and Egyptian Camomile. Harney & Sons has got it right!" β€”LMS

    Price: $7.19 (for 20 sachets; available in 10 flavors)

    5. A felt letter board so you can get crafty with the passive-aggressive notes you leave for your roommate.,

    Promising review: "Great quality for the price. I was happily surprised. Tons of letters. I used a pair of heavy-duty scissors to cut them off the forms. Took less than a few minutes. Comes with a velvety bag to hold loose letters. I thought 10”x10” would be too small, but it's perfect." β€”TriSaraht0ps

    Price: $16.65

    6. Unstable Unicorns, a strategic card game that encourages you to "destroy your friendships...but in a good way." And who among us does not want that?

    Promising review: "In this game, you have to get a certain amount of unicorns in your stable. However, other players can steal and kill your unicorns, so it's enough strategy for them where they can basically pick between 3 options: 1) Build your stable; 2) Defend your stable; 3) Attack your opponents. That's basically it. The options are limited enough that my kids are able to understand after only a couple rounds of playing and it's a great starter game if you ever want to get them into MTG or some other horrifically confusing strategy game. After they perfect their strategy for this game (or get bored of it; but I plan on buying the Dragon expansion soon), I plan to introduce them to Smash Up, which adds a bit more complexity but still the same basic concept." β€”Matt

    Price: $20

    7. A pair of combat-style booties for conquering that next inevitable winter snow storm.

    Promising review: "These are the BEST pair of shoes I have ever purchased! I get compliments EVERYWHERE I go, even from strangers on the street! They are so durable and really good quality! I even wore them in the snow by unfolding them and tying them all the way up and not a single snowflake got in (and I'm talking 10 inches of snow) β€” seriously incredible. Don't hesitate! You won't regret it! I wear mine almost every day!" β€”Trini

    Price: $19.64+ (available women's sizes 5.5-11 and in black, tan, and taupe)

    8. A pair of socks that'll surely resonate with anyone who feels dead after work.

    Promising review: "Great gift idea. Also comes with a 'coffee' version. The socks are soft and thick. The writing on the bottom is also durable, providing traction for the wearer. My wife not only loves the message, she loves how comfortable they are, thanks again!" β€”Zach Vieweg

    Price: $12.99

    9. A highly nourishing lip balm with shea butter you won't have to constantly reapply to feel like it's working.

    Promising review: "This is the best lip balm/lipstick that I own. I suggest it to anyone who is suffering from dry lips that can't be cured with anything else." β€”AChoidds

    Price: $4.90

    10. A pair of faux-fur lined house slippers for anyone who is just barely making it through the cold winter temps.

    Promising review: "100% perfection β€” in both quality and comfort. I have chronic pain and my feet hurt unbearably especially when I stand. These slippers are so very comfortable, I will be wearing them all the time. They also keep my cold feet warm. Very pretty style and the gray color is beautiful." β€”JK

    Price: $19.99+ (available in women's sizes 6M-11M and in five colors)

    11. A multi-purpose scraper and chopper that works wonders for portioning dough...and doesn't cost a lot of dough.

    Promising review: "I don't know how I survived so long without one of these. I use it at least once a week. If I need to divide dough for rolls, this works great, whether it's a sticky, wet sourdough, a rich heavy cinnamon roll dough, or a simple white bread. If pie dough starts sticking to the surface, I pull this out and can remedy the problem without tearing the dough. When I'm making biscuits, I use this to fold the dough so I don't end up with 10 pounds of flour stuck to my fingers. I would highly recommend this to anyone who does a lot of baking." β€”Author Unknown

    Price: $9.99

    12. A wire-free contour bra many reviewers rave is the closest thing (in terms of comfort, at least) to not wearing one at all.

    Promising review: "This is the most comfortable bra I've ever worn. I don't know how in the hell they did it, but I swear to god this thing is somehow more comfortable than free-titting it. It's like there are angels with silk hands holding my breasts up on cloud pillows while feeding me cotton candy and telling me I'm pretty. It's pretty epic." β€”rmsd

    Price: $13.75+ (available in sizes 32A-40C and in 13 colors)

    13. A rose-gold initial pendant necklace that's as easy to pull off as ABC.

    Promising review: "I love this necklace! It's super shiny and looks way more expensive than it actually costs. I am in love with rose gold currently so this is a perfect addition to my collection. I wear it 24/7 and it seems to hold up well with showering, sweating, and the occasional tugs on it by my baby. I also have a nickel allergy and it has not caused me to break out at all. You can even wear it with the plain side facing out and get another look out of it (so technically its a two-for-one necklace)!" β€”Waller

    Price: $12.95 (available in A-Z)

    14. A five-piece post-shave kit with calming chamomile extract and vitamin E to soothe even the most sensitive skin.

    The kit includes: Duffel, Sensitive Post Shave Balm, Sensitive Shaving Gel,

    Sensitive non-drying face wash, Sensitive Protective Lotion, Sensitive Body Wash.

    Promising review: "Nice case with full-sized containers of shaving-related products and body wash. My son was getting razor burn, and these lotions/balms etc., did make a difference for his sensitive skin." β€”8mom

    Price: $25

    15. An adjustable waver perfect for beginners looking to play around with "beachy and ultra-deep waves" to "outrageous crimps."

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE my new Bed Head Waver Crimper! Not only does it have variable heat settings going up to 400 degrees, but it also heats up very quickly AND will automatically shut off if not in use after an hour (a safety feature to avoid burning your house down and conserve energy)." β€”Natalie

    Price: $35.82

    16. An umbrella that's as clear as your hatred for getting dumped on.

    Promising review: "This umbrella is great! Sturdy and just the right size for me and my 6-month-old. It provides great coverage while allowing us a view. While using it, I can honestly say we did not get wet. Great purchase and worth the cost." β€”Cynthia1c

    Price: $24

    17. A copy of Laugh Out Loud Jokes For Kids, because you're pretty sure you have a budding comedian living under your roof.

    Promising review: "My daughter (a 6-year-old) LOVES this book, and I'll admit...I do too. After listening to her β€” admittedly, not great β€” versions of jokes, I decided she needed a little help, so I got this book for her. It's great for early readers: She's able to read it by herself and I've only had to help her out with a couple of words. She loves pulling this book out and saying joke after joke. I love that the jokes are clean and appropriate for her age yet still funny and entertaining for adults and kids alike." β€”AB

    Price: $4.99+

    18. A pair of custom dog socks for anyone whose brand identity is entirely tied up in pet ownership.

    Promising review: "Gets you just the right amount of attention. It's fashion that signals your love for dogs and honors your favorite buddy. Graphics are good, construction is good, and the dye doesn't fade easily. Seems durable!" β€”D. Lee

    Price: $24 (available in small and large and in 10 colors)

    19. A rose-gold karaoke microphone to set you well on your path to becoming a Best New Artist at the Grammys. (Or, just: the worst living neighbor)

    Promising review: "What a product! Can not say enough nice things about this microphone. After using this product, I feel confident I picked the right one. Case in point: It is not just a microphone but a Bluetooth speaker, recording device, and party essential. Bluetooth connection is simple, recording is easy, and the overall ease of use is hard to beat. I am not a professional singer (although sometimes I feel my voice in the shower is top notch) but this device turns me into a nice blend of John Mayer and Ed Sheeran. At least I think so and that's all that matters." β€”Braxton Aldrich

    Price: $32.99 (available in eight colors)

    20. A pair of super comfy pajamas that'll stay glued to your legs all season.

    Promising review: "The pajama pants I received are good quality, comfortable and feel substantial, not thin and flimsy. I'm tall and slim (6'1", 180 lbs.), so finding something that fits me well off the rack or shelf can be difficult. I took a gamble on these pants after reading many reviews, and it paid off. The waist is perfect for me: I ordered Medium, which has a waist size of 31-32, and the rise is comfortable even though the pants are a little bit baggy. I washed them in hot water, and don't believe they shrank. If they did, the degree is negligible.

    I am very satisfied with this purchase." β€”Stephen W. Nicholas

    Price: $15.99+ (available in men's sizes S-XXL and in 15 colors)

    21. An eco-friendly stain remover if you're at your wit's end trying to get years of grime off your surfaces. (Good news: This stuff does the dang thing!)

    Promising review: "I have tried for weeks to get rid of some very tough hard water stains on my glass shower panel. They had been there for three years while my apartment was rented and never cleaned. I have tried just about everything from toothpaste to vinegar to different types of chemical products. After many hours and sore elbows and a horrible vinegar smell on my last attempt which remained in the bathroom for days, I was just about to give up. Until I found this product β€” PURE MAGIC! The non-toxicity of the product is definitely a plus (it doesn't smell bad and doesn't sting your lungs like some hard chemicals do) and so is its biodegradability. I feel better knowing I'm not dumping some more toxic chemicals down the drain. But most importantly, it works!!! After 10 minutes of work, it had removed 90% of the hard water stains that simply would not come off!!" β€”O.R.

    Price: $19.94 (for a 20 oz. container)

    22. A floral watch with a blush-pink strap to make a big statement with your accessories.

    Promising review: "This is a really beautiful watch! What a deal! The rose gold and floral is on-trend, as is the larger face size. A definite fashion statement." β€”Bridget McKay

    Price: $29.99

    23. A pack of "daily encouragement" quote cards that'll brighten up your day (or the day of your lucky recipients).

    Promising review: "I originally got these for myself as pick-me-ups to deal with my depression but I have found my coworkers enjoy them as well. I've left them anonymously for a couple of people and they are always really appreciative. The card quality is similar to playing cards and the colors are incredibly vibrant and beautiful!" β€”Heather

    Price: $9.95 (for a set of 30)

    24. And a copy of The Lost Art of Reading Nature's Signs, if you've literally forgotten what the outdoors are and are making a concerted effort to hit the trails in 2019.

    Promising review: "I have been hiking, taking classes, and reading nature books for decades. However, this book still contained lots of information that I did not previously know. Even though the author is in Europe, I found that the information was applicable to the mountains of Utah. The author does take care to explain flora and fauna of different geographic areas. My hikes are even richer as I am noticing much more than before. I bought the book in both paper and kindle versions because I found it so useful." β€”T. Hahn

    Price: $9.04+
