    1. A very cool Paint By Sticker book filled with 12 legendary masterpieces you get to bring to life using stickers!

    Promising review: "I love coloring but the whole adult-coloring-books scene was really of no interest to me. When I saw that they now make paint-by-sticker books, I was really interested in trying one out. I have an art history background so when I saw this book I bought it instantly. I have found myself getting lost in doing the works of art. It's fun to do and easy. The price is such a great deal. Beautiful colors and detail. I really hope they come out with more art masterpiece books since I am almost done with this one." β€”MamaUnicorn

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (also available in travel- and painting-themed versions).

    2. An inspiring vinyl wall decal that'll be your daily reminder to leave your house and kick some serious ass.,

    Promising review: "Holds up well, easy to apply, long-lasting, and easy to remove when done. I used this in a classroom on the front whiteboard. Easily applied early in the school year β€” bold/solid black. Stayed up with no problem. Easily removed at the end of the school year. I would buy again, the quality was good and the words are NOT individual letters that you have to apply one at a time. The whole phrase is on clear cellophane that you apply all at once and then remove the cellophane. So easy!" β€”M. Brooks

    Get it from Amazon for $1.99.

    3. A seven-color silicone night-light so adorable, so precious, so cute...not even the monsters under your bed will be able to stay scary.

    Light is touch-controlled and comes with a 15-hour battery.

    Promising review: "Love love love this! You can turn the light on and off by smacking it, clapping at it, smacking the table, squeezing the lamp, so many options! I bought it as a last-minute birthday gift for a friend, figuring she'd open it, like it, and put it in her bag to take home. But it was such a hit! Five grown adults sat around the living room fighting over a night-light, haha." β€”MeowAllieCat

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three adorable faces).

    4. A 52-week gratitude journal filled with prompts and space to write out everything you're thankful for β€” because sometimes we're so focused on what we don't have that we forget about everything we do have.

    Promising reviews: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched so many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, was straightforward, and was exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept and I've only been doing it for a week but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for, find myself adding lines below the three provided and writing in the margins...all because I want to!" β€”silkeymilkey

    Get it from Amazon for $5.03.

    5. A comfy, stretchy T-shirt that tells it like it is.

    Are you gonna tell me that the perfectly harmonized voices of All-4-One reminding you of how you were read Cinderella, and how you hoped it would come true, that one day your Prince Charming would come...rescue you, doesn't just remind you of 9-year-old you singing into the mirror imaging Nick Carter taking you to prom? No? Just me? Or how you like romantic movies and how you will never forget the way you felt when Romeo kissed Juliet?

    Promising review: "This shirt definitely runs small. I recommend ordering a size up!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in white, black, and gray).

    6. A dino-mite coated bronze T-rex necklace with a super-sweet and loving message printed on the packaging.

    Promising review: "I purchased this necklace as a gift for a friend who loves dinosaurs. It was super cute and the little saying on the paper is nice too. The T-rex itself is a little small but I liked that about it because it makes it more subtle when it's worn (I tend to like nerdy jewelry that is more subtle until people really see it up close). The recipient loved it and put it on right away too. :)" β€”melrom

    Get it from Amazon for $13 (available in silver, gold, and rose-gold-plated brass).

    7. A pair of adorably grinning running socks that are just proud of you for living that healthy lifestyle.

    Promising review: "So cute! It's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, as described. Bought this for my mom and she loves it. We put a little succulent plant in it and it's perfect. Thinking about buying one for myself! Very nice quality." β€”Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89+ (available in elephant and baby elephant sizes and in a flamingo).

    9. A ceramic coffee mug that examines the "truths" we're brainwashed to believe β€” let's do the math people, it's just not possible.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    10. A pair of soft AF animal-print undies so you can show off your wild side...kind of.

    11. A linen pillow cover that immortalizes one of the greatest moments in TV history and that you'll use to rest your head on while you rewatch The Office for the 782nd time this week.

    Promising review: "By far the greatest pillow cover to ever exist. If Jesus needed a pillow cover, it would be this pillow. The Dalai Lama would murder for this pillow cover." β€”Matt Wood

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    12. An honest and straightforward book filled with breakup letters from kitties, because if you're dealing with just being dumped the only thing might make you feel better is being dumped a cute kitty.,

    Promising review: "What a great little book this is! The letters written from the cat's point of view really do seem to match the personality of each kitty pictured! The photos are adorable and really made me smile and laugh! The writing is funny and witty and you get the sense that the author really does understand the feline mind and is obviously a cat lover himself! This book will make the perfect little gift for any cat lover and with the holidays coming up I now know what I will be getting people!!" β€”jodi payne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.15.

    13. A stainless steel spinner ring discreetly and beautifully designed with an inner band locked into the main band that can be spun manually β€” to provide you with a much-needed distraction when you're feeling anxious and fidgety.

    Promising review: "I have bought two of these over the last year. Ideal for fidgety people and those with a tendency to be anxious. I got one because I was going to publically speak at an event for the first time. I am a fidgety gal and this ring helped me get through a public speech. It is pretty and it is also very functional. The quality is high. It has a lovely opalescence to it. I wear it in dishwater, the shower, and even when I am messing around with paint and alcohol ink. It washes up and remains a smooth distraction from nervous wiggling around. I bought a second one only because I ordered the first one too big. It fits true to size so you do not need to overcompensate." β€”imisssienfeld

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 4-12 and in six colors).

    14. A hilarious little coin purse made of 95% post-consumer recycled material and printed with lead-free inks β€” it'll also be perfect when you whip it out in the most serious of situations.

    Promising review: "I ran across this while searching for a coin purse because my change rattles around in my backpack. I busted out laughing at the 'Weed Money' because about 30 years ago, that's EXACTLY what I'd be putting my money toward β€” weed! Nowadays, I save my change for Geritol, Ensure, Depends, and some rock salt for my pellet gun to keep the kids off my lawn! It's made from recycled plastic so it is only slightly stiff β€” mostly flexible, but not a cotton or canvas bag. It holds a lot of stuff in addition to lots of coins, bills, and any small thing you want to throw in there. Very sturdy." β€”Clifton Vang

    Get it from Amazon for $7.45.

    15. A pair of deliciously cozy salmon sushi socks anyone would be happy to sashimi in.

    Promising review: "I got these in the morning and I immediately put them on. Throughout the day I received compliments from at least five different people. I love them so much!!!! They're so silly and wonderful!! Also, more than one person wanted to feel them because they do such a good job of looking like water-filled bags. If you're on the fence about buying these, either for yourself or someone else, DO IT. They're so worth it." β€”Dolan Clan of the Duck

    22. A set of feather-shaped, fine-point gel pens perfect for all those declarations you have to sign.

    Promising review: "These pens were surprisingly much better quality than I expected. Black-ink gel pens. Fine point, writes smoothly, and a good ink flow. I received: two gold, one silver, one pink. There's a disclaimer that color selection varies, but I also feel like that is a very easy fix on their part. I would have liked to receive one of each color." β€”Kat

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $2.28.
