    1. A liquid matte lipstick that comes in an abundance of shades and won't need reapplication at any point during the day.,

    Promising review: "This is the BEST liquid lipstick I've ever purchased. It's better than Rimmel's Provocalips, Ciate's velvet matte liquid lipsticks, NYX matte lip creams, Milani's matte liquid lipsticks, and Tarte's matte lip paints! The formula stays on ALL DAY and it's SO freaking comfortable. Its texture, once dried, is unlike ANY liquid lipstick I've ever tried before. It's very soft, but lightweight, and it doesn't do that gross cracking or caking thing that some matte liquid lips do (looking at you, Colourpop Ultra Mattes)! The smell is very pleasant and frosting-like, but not overpowering. Add this to your Amazon cart already — it's more than worth the $5 price tag! —K.M.

    Price: $4.98+ (available in 20 colors)

    2. The Art of Gathering, a book packed with surprising insights into how to turn dinner parties, meetings, and conferences into meaningful and worthwhile experiences. (Consider a book club to make this a true gathering.)

    Promising review: "I love this book. It speaks to my heart and soul. And I hope many will read it to experience better meetings, parties, and conferences. Priya Parker has the rare combination of a solid academic background, professional (mediation) experience, and intuition that enables her to analyze gatherings in a way I've never seen before. The lessons she draws from her observations are invaluable and she manages to translate them into clear how-tos for anyone wanting to host or manage friends, family, or their team. Bravo." —Nora

    Price: $14.99+

    3. A pack of sound-muffling door bumpers so you can treat yourself to a midnight snack without announcing your decision to the entire building.

    Promising review: "I live in a studio where the neighbor’s kitchen cabinets are on my side of the wall. After enduring months of cabinet slamming, I finally decided to talk to my neighbors to resolve the problem only to find out they had no door bumpers — or, at best, the really flat ones. I checked my cabinets and had the same thing. I placed two orders — gave one to my neighbors and used the other on my cabinets. They’re peel-and-stick, have a 'nipple' cushion in the middle (mutes better than a flat surface), and are a bargain — 100 for less than $12. At the home improvement stores you only get 12 for that price. Took me less than 15 minutes to install on the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors and drawers. I even placed them on the top/middle/bottom of my sliding closet doors. Nice little treat in the box are picture hangers and little bumpers for frames to protect your walls." —Cleosaby50

    Price: $4.74 for a sheet of 100

    4. A handheld steamer that'll turn crinkly "just-pulled-this-out-from-the-bottom-of-my-dirties" clothing into something a bit more respectable.,

    Promising review: "This little machine is amazing! Pulled it out of the box immediately after receiving it and used to remove wrinkles from new curtains. This little steamer does magic! I researched a number of the handheld options and chose this one as it has one of the larger water reservoirs. Steamer heats up almost immediately but does not emit steam until you hold the button. I did not have any problems with sputtering water." —Tracey T.

    Price: $24.99

    5. A scalp-massaging shampoo brush to make every shampoo day a spa day.

    Promising review: "I have used this for about three weeks now and my scalp looks healthier then ever. This product massages and lifts dead skin and build up from your scalp. I recommend this for people who have psoriasis and other scalp problems. Plus massaging the scalp promotes hair growth and who doesn't want that. This will need batteries, and yes, it really is waterproof!" —Malika S.

    Price: $15.99 (available in four colors)

    6. A pain-relief cream that's unscented, paraben-free, and, more to the point, instantaneous in its soothing effects.

    Promising review: "Unbelievable. Pain relief was almost instantaneous!

    I'm using it on my calf muscle that was hurting so much I could not exercise.

    I was walking with a limp and the only way I was able to get around was to take Aleve, which I hate! Thanks to Arnicare, I'm walking on my treadmill for over an hour every day, with no pain!!" —BigBird

    Price: $7.12

    7. A collapsible travel duffel — it's water-resistant and won't show wear and tear, no matter how much you throw it around.

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag! Did I say, LOVE?! Well I LOVED them so much I bought 10! Yep! you read that right —10! My husband and I moved to Europe and we were allowed to bring 10 bags. I thought these bags would be great to be seen at the airport, which they were. We traveled through four airports and not one of our bags had a hole, not one bag had any zipper issues. I HIGHLY recommend these bags! My favorite feature is that they break down to literally nothing. We threw all our green bags into one of our hard-shell suitcases that don't break down for SUPER easy storage!" —Brittany McAnally

    Price: $24.99 (available in 12 colors)

    8. A pack of reusable straws and cleaning brushes, because straws in plastic are sometimes not fantastic.

    Promising review: "The straws are nice and sturdy, fit perfectly into the cup I was using and are easy to clean (just toss them into the silverware tray of the dishwasher). All of the straws are smooth on both ends. I'd certainly purchase again if I need more straws." —Nicci Stephenson

    Price: $8.99 for a 12-pack (available in three color options)

    9. Some gift-ready photo prints — your choice of matte, glossy, or luster — that'll probably make your parents verklempt.

    Promising review: "Fantastic way to get prints. Very convenient to be able to make prints from the photos I already have on Prime Photos. Nice way to be able to send pictures to family too. I ordered a large 8x10 print. It arrived quickly, well-packaged, and in good shape. The colors were true to the the original picture, and the quality was great. Will certainly order prints this way again." —Cynthia

    Price: $0.09+ (available in sizes 4x5.3-20x30 and in pearl, matte, glossy, and luster finishes)

    10. A "Magic Stone" grill cleaner to take care of the prep part so you can focus your energy on the grillin'.

    Promising review: "My grill accumulated a lot of crud as a result of many cookouts. I tried to keep it as clean as possible with a wire brush and various cleaning pads and cleaners. I never could get the rack and grates to look like new. There was always a layer of permanent food residue, carbon, and other debris that defied removal. I decided to give the Magic Stone Grill Cleaner a shot. I had serious doubts that this thing could do any good. Surprise! Surprise! This is truly a magic stone. It removed everything from the grill parts that I worked on and left them looking like new. The cleaning process did put grooves in the bottom of the stone and that helped to get the sides cleaned off as well." —


    Price: $4.99

    11. A one-piece swimsuit that comes in a ton of vibrant prints — at least one of which is certain to speak to you.,

    Promising review: "I NEVER look good in swimsuits. But I thought that I’d give this one a chance based on other reviews from women that had already bought it. I was blown away at how beautiful this made me feel. I wear a size 18-22 depending upon the clothing. I bought the 20-22 size and it was just right. I may buy more in other colors!" —Marisa H

    Price: $8.59+ (available in S-XXL and in 19 colors/prints)

    12. An aloe and coconut oil lotion to soothe yourself when your skin feels sun-slapped, not sun-kissed.

    Promising review: "Happy to find this product on Amazon. It is a light, non-greasy after-sun lotion without a strong scent (important if you are sensitive to scents in cosmetics and hair products like I am). I use it for a daily moisturizer — not just for after sun. Always bought it locally before, but have had difficultly locating in brick-and-mortar stores lately. The price is right, shipping is fast and included. Highly recommended." —OTsMom

    Price: $4.36

    13. A polka-dot sleeveless dress for a timeless summery look.

    Promising review: "This dress is super cute and extremely lightweight (although not see-through). I am 5’7½” and I ordered a large. It fit true to size. When I wore it to work I got a lot of compliments on it." —Dawn Swisher

    Price: $12.99+ (available in S-XL and in five colors)

    14. A weighted blanket that reviewers with stress and anxiety claim has helped them finally get a good night's rest.

    Promising review: "Comfort, style, and quality: These are all things you expect and deserve when purchasing a blanket. While the YnM will give you this, there are other benefits as well that you can’t get with a normal blanket. The weight is very relaxing and stress relieving. You’ll be able to fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and rest more efficiently. For all these reasons and many more, the YnM weighted blanket outweighs the qualities of any other." —Collin Safly

    Price: $68.50 (available in 12 sizes/weights and in six colors)

    15. A spinning ring — it doubles as a (non-destructive) stress reliever.

    Promising review: "I've had the nervous/bored habit of picking at my fingers since I was a kid. I can't remember the last time I've not had at least one nail bed torn up and bloody. For people with similar habits, I can't recommend this ring enough. It's a great, non-distracting way to redirect fidgety behaviors. I've worn it every day since receiving it and for the first time in years I have intact nail beds! Every time I catch myself starting to pick at a dry patch of skin or uneven cuticle on my finger, I rotate the ring a few times and the impulse disappears." —KGL

    Price: $7.99+ (available in sizes 4-11 and in six colors)

    16. A pair of chic polarized aviator sunglasses you'll want to keep your eyes on.,

    Promising review: "This is the second pair of glasses I've bought from this seller and I'm in love! The quality and mirror effect is so high-end, especially for the price. I always get compliments. The glasses come nicely packed in a sturdy box and include a dust-free pouch to keep them in after. Unlike the first Sojos I purchased, these have rubber bumpers on the nose and ear pieces. Perfect for summer ☀. I'll definitely be ordering more from this seller!" —Michael

    Price: $13.99 (available in 11 colors)

    17. A pack of liquid ant bait for anyone who knows the struggle of a pest infestation a little too well (and is tired of investing in control methods that don't work).

    Promising review: "Ridiculously effective!!! I first went to the local store and bought RAID Ant Baits. The ants simply walked around the traps and showed ZERO interest. I went online and did some research and this Terro Liquid Ant Bait product was getting rave reviews and a lot of positive feedback. I bought some, opened up three of the six packs of Ant Bait, and within MINUTES —yes MINUTES— the ants were literally coming out of the woodwork to get to this stuff. Within two days, not a single ant survives. YAY, Terro. Thank you so much for this excellent product." —Perryo

    Price: $4.69 for a one-pack, $9.40 for a two-pack, or $15.29 for a three-pack.

    18. A lip balm with SPF that comes in a number of enticing flavor profiles (grapefruit and ginger! black tea and blackberry!).

    Promising review: "Best lip balm ever. I feel like other balms just put a layer of wax on my lips to distract me from the fact that they're still dry, whereas this actually softens and improves the skin of my lips. I haven't had a split lip from dryness at all this season. Gave one to my mom and she loves it, too. I also really appreciate that Jack Black does not test on animals." —Alli M

    Price: $7.50 (available in five flavors)

    19. A romper with an elasticized waistline, because summer is winding down and you still haven't romped.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this romper. The material is fantastic: very breathable and soft. I am 5'7", 34B, and about 140 on my most bloated days (I think I'm more legs in height than rest of my body, but definitely don't have a short torso either). I ordered a large because I didn't want to expose too much cheek during the festival I went to. It was very comfortable and loose enough to eat as much as I wanted without feeling like the elastic band was cutting into my stomach. However, I would've been fine in a medium. Highly recommend and already purchased this in another color!" —Kristina

    Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 28 colors/prints)

    20. A play tunnel that has earned the stamp of approval from hundreds of owners and their respective pets (rabbits included).,

    Promising review: "This was purchased for my dwarf rabbit and she gives it two bitty ears up. She spends pretty much all day going in and out of all the tunnels and hopping out of the middle hole. I plan to purchase a second for backup. It's very easy to clean. She has had it for three months and it has held up very well, even to her 'digging.' Great purchase for bunnies, not just cats." —Erica

    Price: $11.49

    21. A frizz-eliminating serum to tame your humidity-ravaged summer hair.

    Promising review: "I love this product in the summertime. It is hard for my hair to survive the summer without becoming a gigantic frizz-ball. And I haven't found any product that tames the frizz better than this. I put a small amount, maybe quarter size, in my hands, rub them together, and then run my hands through my hair right after I get out of the shower. I also spray it with a leave-in conditioner before I comb. This serum isn't really a conditioner, so I try to use both. If I only used the serum, I'd have a hard time combing through my wet hair." —Sofia

    Price: $8.99

    22. A breezy and loose cold-shoulder T-shirt dress, for when you want it both ways.

    Promising review: "Y'ALL. I don't even know what to say. I bought multiple colors and both styles of this dress and am BLOWN AWAY by how cute they are. They are lightweight, made well, and SOOOOOOO COMFORTABLE. I bought a bunch to try on because I needed a dress for an upcoming wedding but now I don't want to return ANY! I can't believe how great they are!" —Taylor W.

    Price: $12.58+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 33 colors/patterns)

    23. And an eyebrow pencil that you can achieve impressive results with even if you don't live on beauty forums.

    Promising review: "I'm new to doing my sparse, barely there eyebrows (which by the way are uneven as well), and I know that I'll never master it like a pro with the gradient effect and all and I've accepted that. SO, with that being said, this is the most natural-looking brow pencil. Everything else I use and have owned is way too dark or it's very easy to tell my real eyebrow from the pencil itself. I like this. It's the closest to natural you're going to get. I'll be ordering more of these when the one I have runs out." —catdog

    Price: $5.68+ (available in four colors)
