    1. A nonstick silicone baking mat that'll eliminate the need to use butters and oils β€” the dang food slides right off when it's done!

    Promising review: "Silpats are the gold standard in many high-end professional kitchens, bakeries, and patisseries. Having had professional experience at all three, I can vouch for the excellent and unmatched nonstick properties of them. In professional settings, we affectionately refer to them by the brand’s name, 'Silpats,' instead of 'baking mats,' because the name has become synonymous with optimum nonstick baking results. The ones we used in professional kitchens are the much larger, full-sheet pan size, which allow a greater number of products to be baked at once. I purchased the home-friendly, half-sheet pan size for my home kitchen in 2009 and not surprisingly, they are still practically brand-new after eight years of use. Not a scratch or tear in them. Cookies, galettes, crisps, tuiles, etc., bake to scrumptious, golden brown perfection every single time. The best part? They slip off like a breeze, without so much as a hiccup." β€”SoCal Cycling Chef

    Price: $13.99+ (available in medium, jelly roll, and toaster oven-size)

    2. The complete Blu-Ray collection of Game of Thrones (Seasons 1–7), if you can't get enough Westeros drama and need some bonus features to tide you over until it returns for its final season.


    Promising review: "This was a substantial investment on my part, but since everyone in my house is in love with this series, it will make a very nice gift. The set comes with 30 discs with all of the episodes, plus a digital download code for watching the series on mobile devices. I looked at the extra material available with the series and it looks like I am going to be busy watching a lot of new material!" β€”Paul Kloves

    Price: $119.99

    3. A countertop convection toaster oven for achieving that even, just-right browning every time.

    Promising review: "I had looked at a more expensive Breville convection toaster oven, but in comparing the two side by side, I decided to go with the Oster not just for the almost $200 savings, but for the look β€” I just love the black finish and curved sides. It blends so nicely in my kitchen." β€”jonij.rn

    Price: $59.99

    4. A 48-piece solar system puzzle any kid would be over the moon to receive.


    Promising review: "We love the Melissa and Doug floor puzzles. My son (5) puts them together fairly easily but is still challenged. We don't have to help him, which is nice. It's a good size and can be done on a dining room table as well as the floor." β€”jsinca

    Price: $12.99

    5. This CoverGirl waterproof mascara, a reliable dupe that users say gives them some of the fullest and dreamiest lashes in their mascara-using experience.,

    Promising review: "My favorite mascara β€” and I've tried many brands at many price points. Black mascara is too harsh for my lighter-than-pale complexion, so I always buy the black-brown color. It appears as a soft black. The formula and application wand create thick, long lashes. I use two to three light coats and have never had trouble with flaking. It IS waterproof and moisturizer-proof. I have no trouble with smearing due to eye creams and concealer. I actually prefer this mascara to many more expensive brands." β€”Lori

    Price: $5.88 (available in black-brown, black, and very black)

    6. A dog feeding station with collapsible legs and two rust-resistant stainless steel bowls to delight owners and pups alike.

    Promising review: "Easy and quick to assemble this item. I like that it can be three different heights, which makes it a good fit more many differently sized dogs. Our dog that primarily uses this feeder is a lab mix (48 pounds). We use it on the tallest option since the middle option was a bit too low for her. Our other dog is an American Stafford-shire mix (49 pounds) and slightly shorter than the lab mix, and it is a good height for her as well. I am impressed with the quality and look of the product. I was concerned that it would not be stable or sturdy because it is made out of plastic, but it surpassed my expectations. The metal bowls are easy to clean and don't bounce around in their setting on the feeder. Great product!" β€”Msb0510

    Price: $24.99

    7. A set of microwavable food storage containers that'll encourage you to finally pack β€” or, should I say, take along β€” a lunch for work.

    Promising review: "Perfect for meal prep, handles the microwave excellently, and is inexpensive for the quality. Haven't had any issues with lids not fitting, will buy (and have bought, when I forgot about cleanup and accidentally made a few science experiments) again when I need more." β€”Travis M.

    Price: $14.29+ for a nine-pack (available in red and green)

    8. A sworn-by pair of noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones you won't have to worry about ruining in a rainstorm or after a heavy sweat at the gym.

    Promising review: "I've been using these for about three to four weeks. They sound excellent and stay on my ears without any fiddling. The over-ear hooks are very soft so they don’t bother my ears at all. They always connect to my phone and never drop. I have yet to run down the battery even after being on a conference call for three hours." β€”Michael Friddell

    Price: $19.99+ (available in seven colors)

    And check out our pick for the best Bluetooth headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    9. A quartz pink iPhone case that's basically a monster β€” it's built with two shock-absorbing layers to protect against inevitable spills.

    Promising review: "I am a firm believer in the Speck CandyShell cases. The day I got my case I put it on my phone, no screen protector on and ended up tripping. My phone flew about 10 feet forward and landed on the asphalt. Not a scratch or a crack to the phone. These cases get the job done!" β€”Autumn Noyes

    Price: $19.95 (compatible with iPhone 8 Plus, 7 Plus, 6S Plus, and 6 Plus)

    10. An interactive, daily magnetic calendar, because as the old saying goes, time flies when you're learning the days of the week!

    Promising review: "I would definitely recommend this product to parents of little ones when it's time to start teaching them the months of the year, days of the week, years, seasons, activities for the month, holidays, how to express their feelings, and how to tell the weather. It's quite amazing. We've had it for a while and my daughter (just turned 4) is definitely catching on. It most importantly helps with continuing the same way she is learning all of these things in the classroom if you have your child in preschool. As a substitute teacher, I know for a fact they use something similar to this to teach the kids these things well into kindergarten and in some states, the first grade. For sure, I will be using this on my other little ones when they become her age. For $20, it's good quality for the price." β€”JLu

    Price: $19.99

    11. An eight-piece mixing bowl set that performs a minor miracle: It absorbs approximately zero food odors.

    Promising review: "In a world where most new products are waaaaaay worse quality than they used to be, I'm delighted to say that these Pyrex bowls are the same good quality that they've always been. Our trusty 12-year-old set of Pyrex bowls were lost in a cross-country move this summer, and I was dreading ordering new ones, expecting that they would be shoddier than my old set. These are exactly identical! I ordered the set with lids because I thought, 'Why not?' In fact, the lids have come in SO handy, that I don't know how I lived without them before. So nice to be able to prep foods and then pop them right into the fridge if I need to." β€”EGMM

    Price: $31.95 for an eight-piece set

    12. A Crayola art desk that, to every parent's relief, promises a completely mess-free experience.

    Promising review: "I love when my toddler gets to be creative.. especially when there is no mess involved! This product is great for entertaining an almost 3 year old without the mess. I also love that it is it's own storage case! I use it to store other color wonder products." β€”GQ Stratton

    Price: $15.99

    13. A Yi security surveillance system to make keeping tabs on your kid, mail, and pets easier than ever.,

    Promising review: "Bought this to monitor our front door while away on a trip. Delivery of the item was on time and I got it set up on my Android phone in less than a half hour. We bought a 32GB micro SD card for it and positioned the camera to view outside the office window towards our front porch and the picture is very clear at all times of the day! I am able to receive the alerts and view them from my phone and/or laptop. I am also able to view more than the six-second clip if I want to watch the full footage of the movement." β€”aug4570

    Price: $30.99

    14. An easy-to-blend NYX color-correcting palette that's comparable to products twice its price.

    Promising review: "I have other color correctors that feel too heavy or too drying. So when I picked this up I was a bit nervous as it was my first NYX buy (I know, I know, but that was two months ago and now I'm hooked to the brand!). First off, this is about a fraction of the price in-stores (~$10). It was a complete steal for the price! It has six different colors: yellow, green, purple, salmon-pink, and two skin tones (cream and brown). To correct the problem area, choose the color or close to it (e.g., red for acne) and then choose the opposite color (e.g. the green is the opposite of red). This means you need the green corrector to cover your redness. Yellow is the opposite of purple so it corrects dark circles (I read that it's best for tanner people), veins, and purple-ish bruises. Purple is the opposite of yellow so it corrects yellow undertones. The salmon-pink corrects blue/purple (under-eye bags for my pale skin)." β€”Z.S.

    Price: $9.55

    15. A keyboard play mat, because everyone should get to have their Tom Hanks in Big moment at an early age.


    Promising review: "Great gift for my nephews, 1 year and 5 years. Fits the bill as something that's advanced enough for a 5-year-old but doesn't have small parts that the baby could choke on. Fun for adults too!" β€”Rebecca

    Price: $45.14

    16. A pair of tiny leaf ear-climber earrings, for an adorable accent to go with any look.

    Promising review: "These earrings are so beautiful, I get lots of compliments on them. I have a very easily triggered nickel allergy, but these are high quality and contain no nickel as stated β€” I have no reactions to them when they're in even for several days at a time! They stay in place securely without me feeling like my ear is pinched or restricted. They're even comfortable enough to sleep in!" β€”HMEReviews

    Price: $15.89 (available in gold, rose gold, and silver)

    17. Acure argan oil, the multi-use remedy β€” you can use it on your hair, hands, cuticles, elbows, and heels β€” that people with all different skin types can come together on.

    Promising review: "I've tried many expensive moisturizers, oils, and serums, and none compare to this product. I was initially worried that because it's an oil, my face might break out (as it does with olive or coconut oil β€” yes, I've tried everything!), but it's actually done the opposite. My skin's never been so clear or soft. I have combination skin, and I thought it might leave the oilier spots too oily, but it's effectively saturated the dry and oilier spots evenly β€” making my whole face soft and blemish-free." β€”Amy

    Price: $8.91

    18. A Shopkins smoothie truck toy, because if you're too young to have a driver's license or safely operate a blender, this is obviously the next best thing.

    Promising review: "Daughter loves this set. She's gotten hours of play from it. Fun to go with her Shoppie doll and other Shopkins accessories. I bought the tiki hut to go with it. Rolls pretty well. Shoppie doll fits inside to drive." β€”JD

    Price: $9.73

    19. An electric wine opener that could, conceivably, be the last wine opener you purchase in your lifetime β€” this thing's durable AF!


    Promising review: "I ordered this for my smokin' hot GF back in 2012. Fast forward three years: This $20 wine opener is still with me and my smokin' hot GF is now my smokin' hot wife. I never thought either one would be with me for this long, but life is good. We like to have a good time β€” I mean, we effin' get down on some wine. So this bad boy probably pops open a new bottle every two days. It has stayed plugged in to our wall for over three years now (I halfway expected the battery would have burned out by now, but nope!). We haven't even had to replace the screw yet β€” still works like new β€” I'm shocked and impressed this $20 opener has faithfully lasted this long. Often times you get what you pay for (I know because I'm, the OG of cheap) but this is an exception to that rule. I have no idea why anyone would pay $50+ for another 'more recognizable' brand; this is packed with all the quality you could ever need." β€”DaveyG

    Price: $17.99

    20. A hair catcher, because unfortunately drains are not going to unclog themselves β€” so you might as well opt for a customer favorite to stay ahead of the problem.

    Promising review: "The proof is in the pudding! First time using this and it worked precisely as advertised. Drain is free and clear. Usually I have to spend a few minutes after pulling out of the drain what escaped off Bella, my 80-pound yellow lab. Not this time. I'm sold!" β€”Eric A. Hofstetter

    Price: $10.99 (available in six colors)

    21. An overachieving humidifier that doubles as a nightlight, has an auto-shutoff mode, and can run for 16 continuous hours while spritzing you with mist and remaining nearly silent.

    Promising review: "This humidifier does exactly what the description of this product claims. It's very quiet, can run on high for at least 11 hours, and it appears to be easy to clean and keep clean. Even though our bedroom is about 50 square feet more in area than what the box says is the products limit it still does its job. This is a beautifully styled and made product that performs as advertised." β€”ocmd

    Price: $39.99

    22. A three-pack of fashionable cotton swaddles so you can keep your baby snug, comfortable, and out of harm's way.,

    Promising review: "These are lifesavers. They make swaddling my son so easy. And since I know he can't get out of it, I sleep better, knowing he can kick a traditional swaddled blanket over his face. The colors of these are nice and bright. My son is 2 months old, somewhere between 19 and 22 inches, and around 11 or 12 pounds, and he fits in these perfectly. By the time he outgrows them I think he'll be ready for a different kind." β€”Spelllesswonder29

    Price: $34.99 (available in two designs)

    23. A dual-charging station for XBox One, because nothing ruins the high of gaming like a low battery., Amazon

    Promising review: "Keeps my controllers charged and the batteries on these things last for a long time. Haven't run out of battery yet even during seven- to eight-hour or longer gaming sessions. Just pop it back on the charger at night when you're done. Doesn't take up much space on my shelf, and Amazon Basics always makes quality products!" β€”RAM

    Price: $24.99

    24. A Kipozi titanium flat iron so you can combat frizzy summer hair β€” plus, it shuts off after 90 minutes to save you the worries.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this thing! So this arrived yesterday and I couldn’t help myself, I had to try the curl first. First attempt, perfect curl! It tells you what temperature you should use for what kind of hair you have so I found the right temp for me very quickly. I’m beyond impressed with this straightener. Highly recommend. The last straightener I had was great but expensive. This one is a great price and better than the last one. So happy I decided to try this one. Curling takes a bit of practice but once you figure it out it’s quick and easy. Leaves my hair super shiny." β€”brendon

    Price: $37.06 (available in matte black, rose pink, and bright gold)

    25. A shoe rack built for the impulsive shoe-buyer in mind β€” it can hold up to 50 shoes! Without issue!

    Promising review: "I really truly love this shoe rack. First, the price is incredible for the quality of the shoe rack. Second, it actually does hold 50 pairs of shoes (women's shoes). Third, it is mobile. And lastly, it's pretty sturdy." β€”Benephanie

    Price: $36.38

    26. And an Echo Spot, if you're looking to pivot to a hands-free lifestyle in which Alexa handles your lights, front-door camera views, and thermostat at your request.

    Promising review: "I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house, from my locks to my thermostats. I have one Echo, four Echo Dots, and now one Echo Spot. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple guy but I'd choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!" β€”Apple Guy

    Price: $129.99 (available in black and white)
