    1. A gorgeous celestial One Line a Day journal designed to inspire daily reflections on your life that you can treasure long after its pages are filled.


    Promising review: "I've almost filled the first five-year journal that I received as a gift. So I was excited to pick what the next one would look like. A good quality item that I expect will age well. I was really happy to see that there's a watermark style design on the pages, which is pretty yet not distracting. 100% satisfied with my purchase!" β€”Louise

    Get it from Amazon for $14.78.

    2. A pair of comfy athletic ankle socks that'll keep you motivated when you take your run β€” to the dark side.


    Promising review: "They are one-size-fits-all so if you have smaller feet (adult women's 5-7) they may be a little big. I am around a 6.5-7 and they fit okay but on the bigger size. I still think they are wonderful gifts for runners or athletes! They are also great quality for the price!" β€”brelli

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    3. An awesome notepad so you can give out fines for all your amazingness β€” you're about to go broke!


    Promising review: "These are SO FUNNY to leave around the office! My coworkers thought they were an absolute riot, especially because you can make them genuine or really, really sarcastic if you want. It’s a cool way to either give someone a shoutout or rag your friends for fun. The only drawback is that the back of the notes aren’t sticky like post-it notes, but the hilarity and uniqueness of the notes easily make up for that." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get the 50 sheet notepad from Amazon for $7.03.

    4. A box of tea filled with delicious flavors and amazing literary quotes β€” most of which might help bring a smile to your face while you start your day!


    Promising review: "These are really cute and the tea has a great flavor β€” even tea snobs should be pleased with it :). They come sealed in a plastic bag inside the box. I would buy this again. The outer packaging is quite nice and sturdy, and would make a great gift." β€”jmp

    Get a pack of 25 from Amazon for $13.50.

    5. An encouraging little book filled with affirmations and pep talks to help remind you of how awesome you are!


    Promising review: "I expected nothing except delightful wordplay from Lin-Manuel Miranda, but between the genuine feeling of being seen and understood that these little pep talks give the reader and the humorous, perfectly suited illustrations by Jonny Sun, Gmorning, Gnight is one of those books that I'll read over and over again. I pre-ordered and received my copy today...and I finished it in one sitting. Please buy a copy for yourself, your friends, or whoever the heck in your life or on the subway who needs a smile. So happy." β€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (also available in Spanish).

    6. 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.

    7. An inspiring weekly journal filled with activities, prompts, and encouragements so you can get it all out β€” and onto paper.


    Promising review: "This book is absolutely perfect to have as a guide, and it has so many creative writing prompts that inspire happiness. I haven't completed the entire book yet but I know I'll be sad when it ends. I hope she comes out with a second edition! This book really inspires you to find happiness in your life and to create more of it, and it's fun too." β€”Riley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    8. A linen pillow cover that's here to remind you no matter how the day is treating you, there are a lotta people out here who love you.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 10 designs).

    9. Or try a pillow cover you know will turn that frown upside down every time you look at it.


    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS THING! I brought one for my manager as we are both huge fans of The Office β€” and I just had to get one for myself! I paid the extra $$$ for the one-day shipping β€” WORTH IT! It's super soft to the touch, made with durable fabric, and the print is dyed into the fabric. Once again, Amazon, 'you always leave me satisfied and smiling!' (THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!)" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    10. A delightful book filled with over 200 reminders of how absolutely incredible you really are.

I have yet to see someone draw one, read it, and not smile with delight. You will want to Instagram every single card because they are that good.

    13. A sturdy do-it-yourself autobiography filled with over 200 questions to help you immortalize some of your amazing life memories.


    Promising review: "This book has lots of good questions, with plenty of space for me to write my answers. Easy pages on which to write too. Right now I'm jumping around to answer questions that spark memories right away. Other questions will take more thought. I don't have children, but I think my nieces and nephews will get to learn something about me that they didn't know before. Even if they don't, I found it almost therapeutic to mentally relive some moments of my life and to jot them down. When you put it all down it's kind of amazing to see the full, interesting life I hadn't realized I've lived." β€”J. Daniels

    Get it from Amazon for $16.14.

Her mom says they read this book almost every day (and she used to hate being read to). She loves it. It has really helped her embrace her hair. She's the cutest girl ever, so I'm happy she is seeing that now too." β€”Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.28.

    18. An impactful Two-Minute Mornings journal with gratitude focusing prompts to help you start your mornings on a positive note.


    Promising review: "I am a grad student in a very strenuous program and I like staying busy that way. But on breaks, when I have too much time, I sink into nothingness. I didn't expect this book to do much, especially since I thought 'mindfulness' was some BS. Even if it's the same prompts every day, it's what you make out of the book. I like mentally checking off the three small accomplishments I held myself accountable for in ink, somehow the book is better than my Post-it note to-do lists. And the main reason for the five stars, it helps with my depression." β€”KellBell

    Get it from Amazon for $13.46.

    Promising review: "Perfect! I am so impressed! I was very skeptical about ordering live plants online, but I received two gorgeous, perfectly healthy aloe plants at my doorstep. They were so carefully packaged that it would have been really hard to damage them in transit." β€”Dynette

    Get it from Amazon for $20.58.
