    Amazon

    It can also help you deal with stress and insomnia. Check out our full review of the ProsourceFit Acupressure Mat to learn just how much this mat can help.

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome! Yes, it can hurt, especially on those really tight areas, but I love it anyway. You can feel the blood start racing through your body, great for circulation. Takes a few minutes to adjust your body to the right position when lying on your back. I lie on it all different ways. Pull your legs up when on your back to get the middle of your back and spine. I love standing on it β€” the hip area hurts but I do it anyway. If you're really a trouper, kneel on it. I use it almost every day and I only wear underwear when I use it. This was a great price and it came with a bolster pillow. I've ordered more for friends." β€”Kelly

    2. A set of easily removable inserts for your drawers to give everything its place.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Wow! I can find my socks, hose, bras, and scarves again! Great organizers! It helps clear clutter and makes putting together great outfits so much easier! So glad I got them! I hope to order more! Also, no more solo socks!" β€”H.j.

    3. A pack of pimple patches just in case a giant-ass mountain decides to develop on your face right before your next big anything.

    Promising review: "These things have gotten rid of so many blemishes for me! I had two really big pimples, one on my chest and one on my shoulder so I put these patches on them and it pulled so much stuff out of those pimples that the area where it's white is actually like thicker than the rest of the patch, these patches are a miracle! Gotta love finding inexpensive and super effective acne solutions!" β€”kaiah

    4. A 144 page, A-Z tabbed password journal so you can have all your log-in information in one secure place β€” just make sure it's in a secure place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We all respect internet privacy. But what happens if you die? Simple issues like your Netflix account become huge stumbling blocks to your survivors. Keep a record of your passwords. Maybe you're young and don't think about ever passing away? Need to get on Facebook after two years' silence, pay your cable bill, bank checking account password...last year's Turbo Tax, etc. Who can remember all those passwords? Yeah, I wrote it on that back of that envelope..."Honey, where's that envelope?" STOP!!! THIS is where you will record your user names and passwords. Do yourself and loved ones a big favor and purchase this book." β€”David D.

    amazon.com

    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!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ADORE THESE! I just gave two to a friend as part of a wedding gift and she is in love. I think I will have to order them by the dozen so I can still have one for me as my whole family covets them and is stealing them away. They are great for curly hair. You wake up and your hair doesn't look like a rat's nest. I've read that they are also great for your skin so am watching to see if that is true. Thank you for a fabulous product." β€”Lena

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in five sizes and 43 colors).

    7. The Big Book of 30-Day Challenges, a book filled with 60 fun and inspiring ideas to help you form better habits, increase productivity, and achieve some of the goals you always thought were basically impossible.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It is difficult for me to maintain a healthy and organized life consistently, but I know that I respond well to a feeling of accomplishment. So when I saw this I knew it was for me. Each little change and activity was satisfying to complete. I was surprised at how much my general mood improved just from these slight changes. These aren't challenges for the sake of challenge, though, they're actually a great way to get your life on the right track. I know for so many of us it's difficult to know where to begin β€” I suggest you begin with this book." β€”Wendy Valderman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.24.

    9. A set of glass meal-prep containers to aid you in planning out your weeks for help sticking to your meal plan and on budget.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I live in a plastic-free household and glass meal-prep containers are something that I can never seem to have enough of! What I love about these containers is that they're a bit deeper than most meal-prep containers, allowing you to reduce some bulk. There is also a lovely glass divider built into the container! Though heavy, because they are glass, my family has easily thrown these into their lunch bags and let's just say that they're not the most delicate of creatures but the meal-prep containers arrive back home perfectly intact with no leaks or spills! Definitely a must-have, and for the price, you really cannot find anything as great! I searched on Amazon and found that even plastic containers were the same price!" β€”RVS

    Get a set of five containers from Amazon for $28.99.

    10. Gmorning, Gnight!, an encouraging little book filled with affirmations and pep talks that'll help remind you of just how awesome you are!

    Amazon

    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 $10.98 (also available in Spanish).

    11. A cold-brew iced coffee maker, because your love for an icy caffeine fix is real and Starbucks is expensive.

    Amazon

    Includes a detachable infuser, lid, and pitcher. BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to make cold brew coffee at the office. My coworkers and I were going to the local Siren at least three to four times a week for our afternoon pick me up. It was starting to become a serious drain financially. We all chipped in to get this pitcher and take turns buying beans. Get them ground for a French press, or super coarse, and you'll have a pretty good replica. The instructions for making cold brew are pretty easy. Of course, you'll get some micro grinds that will make their way through the filter but that's to be expected. If you're OCD about it, you could pour it through a strainer or paper filter. Or just let it settle and pour gently. We've seriously cut down our caffeine expenditures by 50-75%. Now if we could figure out a way to order out less. :)" β€”DT

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    12. A delightful five-year journal that has you answer one question every day of the year and come back to the same questions on the same day for five years.

    Amazon

    Check out our full review of Q&A a Day: 5-Year Journal here!

    Promising review: "I love this journal. I'm not the person to keep a diary, but I always love to reminisce about past memories. This is the perfect median. Some questions are very thought-provoking ('Are you in love?' 'Who are you fooling?') and some are a little lighter ('What's in your fridge right now?' 'Are you wearing socks?'). If you answer these with one word, you're probably not going to have fun with this journal or have anything to really look back on. If you go in-depth with your answers (i.e., 'Are you wearing socks?' 'Yes! Two! My heater broke and it's a blizzard!'), you'll be able to really have something to look back on. All and all, I'm seven months into this journal and I love it so much. I'm excited to continue filling it out for the next four and a half years!" β€”Kiersten

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    13. A pack of collagen-infused eye masks to help combat your lack-of-sleep look and any other general under-eye puffiness that tends to add to your bad day.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is a MUST for anyone who struggles with puffy/dark under eyes! I have horrible under-eye bags thanks to poor genetics and wearing eyeglasses my entire life. At some point, I'm going to have plastic surgery but I will be using these eye masks every day until I can afford the time and money for the surgery. I've enclosed an ugly (but very honest) picture of the before and after results from using this product this morning. I woke up and immediately applied the eye mask. I then wore it for about 25 minutes under my eyeglasses while I went about my household chores until the pads completely dried. When I removed the mask, my under-eye area was looking way less puffy and much brighter than when I woke up. I love this product so much that I'm ordering five more packages today so I have a supply handy." β€”Mrs L

    Get two packs of 30 from Amazon for $4.82.

    14. A Diamond Dazzle Stick for help polishing your precious jewels and making them shine bright like...well, like a diamond.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Check out our full review of Diamond Dazzle Stick.

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong, my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this Diamond Dazzle Stick, oh my goodness! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it β€” it literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! This thing is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" β€”liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $8.78.

    15. A double-wall reusable water bottle (with straw) to track exactly how much water you're drinking β€” and how much more you should be drinking.

    amazon.com

    Check out our review of a similar bottle by the same brand that helped us stay hydrated!

    Promising review: "Love this water bottle. The concept of using the bands to help you keep track of how much you're drinking is GENIUS. I HATE using apps because I forget to update them after I'm done drinking. This is so simplistic but so great. Drink a whole bottle, sweet! Put a band on your wrist. They're cute, colorful, and comfy. If you have a lot of arm hair they might pinch and tug your arm. This bottle isn't meant to be tipped over, though. It leaked a little when it would fall over with the straw, which makes sense. Duh! The straw isn't airtight to the bottle. Cute, stylish, and simplistic in its ways of keeping track of water intake. Love." β€”Ana T.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90+ (available in five sizes and in 14 colors and styles).

    16. An informative and very helpful copy of Investing 101: From Stocks and Bonds to ETFs and IPOs, an Essential Primer on Building a Profitable Portfolio β€” yes, it has a long title but this book actually provides some easy to understand, hands-on lessons on what it takes (and means) to invest your hard-earned cash.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Most investment books I've read are generally worthless, with the author's ego and business motives being the highlight. With Investing 101, I struck gold! It is a perfect lexicon of facts and information. It describes all the language and terminology, number and formula, and strategies used by different investors. It's concise and easy to understand. The information provided has given me enough knowledge to begin trying investing on my own. Excellent resource." β€”Deborah Walker

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    17. A seven-setting shower head designed with a built-in reservoir handle that has a refillable cartridge pre-filled with minerals and active carbon β€” you can refill these cartridges with your choice of bath salts, aromatherapy minerals, or water-treatment granules. It's all the joys of a relaxing bath without having to marinate in your own juices!!!!

    Amazon

    It can be used with or without cartridges as a regular shower head. Works with an overhead or handheld shower. Designed with a 4" chrome face. The seven settings include rain, pulsating massage, hydro-mist, rain/massage, rain/mist, economy rain. No tools required for installation to any standard overhead shower arm. It comes with two pre-filled refillable cartridges β€” one with aromatherapy minerals and one with active carbon for water purification (each lasts for up to 90 days). You can refill cartridges with your favorite aromatherapy bath salts and minerals or purchase replacement cartridge kits.

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this. The shower water really is very soft and silky β€” without conditioner, my hair is now softer than it was with conditioner and regular shower water! I can definitely tell that it makes the shower water better quality. It feels very silky on your skin. It's soothing. This showerhead has softer settings β€” even a fine mist! It's much more skin-friendly to those with sensitive skin. I've been using it for two-three months now and I'm very pleased that I made a good investment in this." β€”SherryTexasNative

    Get it from Amazon for $19.59.

    18. A budget book to help you organize monthly expenses and stay on top of your financial planning.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two of these as a gift for a friend looking to budget and buy a home next year as well as a gift for someone looking to budget. The book is well-made and thoughtfully designed. Perfect for anyone looking to minimize the time it takes to budget or someone who is new and needs some guidance! I loved that it has the pockets for your receipts too. After my boyfriend saw it, even he wanted one!" β€”Nicole Giordano

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors).

    19. A complete three-piece starter kit with the tools you need to learn and master the practice of yoga.

    amazon.com

    Kit includes a yoga block, a stretching strap, and a yoga mat. Plus they include a DVD with two full-length yoga workouts.

    Promising review: "I've been wanting to try yoga for a long time, but I was intimidated by the fact that most classes are for advanced students, even when they claim they're for beginners. I have yet to really use the block yet, but the CD that comes with this kit is awesome. I use it about twice a week. Every time I use it I FEEL AMAZING. Within the first five minutes, my back pops and feels so much better. I am becoming more flexible and don't feel intimidated at all by the workout. I recommend to anyone starting out that doesn't feel confident in trying yoga." β€”Kortney Voss

    Get the three-piece kit from Amazon for $24.56+ (available in three colors).

    20. Becoming by Michelle Obama β€” it provides an inspiring look into the former FLOTUS' life and the journey she took into becoming the icon so many see her as today.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I started reading and couldn't put it down, finished it literally 24 hours after delivery. Michelle Robinson Obama's story is one of challenges met, hard work tempered with good sense, and above all, how a few key people can support a young girl and elevate her, so that she, in turn, can elevate others. It is a wonderful, heartfelt, true story of HOPE in a world gone far too cynical." β€”Linda L. Leiby

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89.

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

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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.

    22. A bottle of sparkly and minty Ritual multivitamins, designed with nine essential ingredients to help you stay healthy.

    Ritual

    Get a one-month supply from Ritual for $30.

    23. An open-back workout top that's just super cute β€” and someone once told me that if you put some effort into planning your workout outfits you'll probably be more inclined to work out, which I totally believe and am going to at least try...since nothing else is working.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "As soon as I walked into my spin class tonight I got a compliment on the shirt. It is very cute. I'm a bigger girl β€” 5'10" and 170 lbs., and 36C. I ordered a large and it fits fine. Like others have mentioned, if you want a loose fit order up a size. I just tied the tie looser to make it less clingy. If you're working up a massive sweat, you're probably gonna make a weird pattern with this shirt. It's a cotton material and just soaks up my sweat." β€”JennJennRN

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors).

    24. A monthly subscription to some awesome K-beauty face masks β€” it's like having glowing skin delivered right to your door!

    Amazon

    The subscription includes four essential fabric masks every month as well as an insert with helpful tips and information to get the very best out of the month's masks β€” all packed into an adorable resealable bag.

    Promising review: "This set was awesome, and the box it came in was very nicely packaged. The variety in brands and specialties of the mask were very well-curated and it's a nice set to add to a collection or for someone who wants to get into masking. My only problem with it was I wish it gave the individual prices of each mask and the ability to re-buy a mask if I liked it. I should also add that I have sensitive skin and eczema." β€”Christina

    Get your first box from Amazon for $4.72+ (available in boxes of four and seven).

    25. A set of lace-trimmed cotton undies, because new year β€” new underwear!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are really nice. Nice quality fabric and I love the lace. Like most reviewers, I noticed I didn't receive any of the colors shown in Amazon promo but the colors are still nice. I would definitely reorder and hope I actually get some of the purple, polka dots, or pink lace. As stated in the description, colors and patterns may vary." β€”chauncieR

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $14.99 (available in sizes S–XL).

    26. Almost Adulting, a very informative book written with the intention of helping you finally get yourself together.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This book I found to be incredibly peaceful and giddy. The author intentionally made this book in a way that makes people laugh. She mixed tips in with her own experiences and I really loved the way she took the time to express her different ideas about happiness. The author put amazing dedication into the cover and the style β€” that makes me laugh because the tiny pictures represent adult life. She did a really great job of expressing how to love and be yourself, without being hypocritical and not doing it herself. Cherishing this book." β€”summerwoods10

    Get it from Amazon for $7.75+.

    27. A multi-pocketed handbag organizer to help you keep your purse from turning into a black pit of despair.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love how my purse looks more organized. I had a whole bunch of bags. But now it's all contained and with easy access." β€”FCM

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in 27 colors).

    28. A detangling brush for those of us with hair that secretly aspires to become a bird's nest.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 5-year-old has long hair that tangles, matts, and becomes an unruly animal of its own. Everything from argan oil, special conditioners, shampoos, and wide-tooth combs surrendered at her hair's strength and stubbornness. I endured crying, snarling, and side-eyes from other parents. A stylist at a salon suggested this brush. I rolled my eyes and plunked down $8. This brush did what it said, and no more tears. My daughter has naturally curly hair and this brush won without a fight. I look forward to styling her hair and making her presentable." β€”JohnnyV

    Get it from Amazon for $6.87+ (available in 11 colors).

    29. A helpful little notepad, because sometimes when everything is a mess you just need to make a list!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "As it stands, not ordering every single Knock Knock paper pad has been one of the most remarkable shows of willpower I can recall. This one, I decided, would be the most useful in the scheme of things and so far it's been great. Grocery lists, homework reminders, to-do lists. They all seem so much less dull when written beneath these encouraging words. 10/10 will buy again, probably with a few of the other ones, too." β€”Courtney McCarthy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 15 styles).

    30. A Simply Fit Board to help you work out your abs, legs, and core from the comfort of your living room.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is so fun and easy to use but still gives you a great workout. I saw it on Shark Tank and instantly went to Amazon to order one! I would recommend getting the little platform that keeps it stable β€” otherwise I tend to eventually move across the room!" β€”S. Reid

    Get it from Amazon for $19.88 (available in four colors).

    31. A set of 50 adorably funny affirmation cards for help staying motivated on even the worst days.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Buy these for your friend, your grandma, your sibling, YOURSELF! These affirmations will light up your day and make you feel warm and fuzzy! 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. I am gushing now and I think you get it, so just buy the cards already! :)" β€”Bex27

    Get them from Amazon for $13.82.

    32. A jar of Aztec Secret deep pore cleansing mask that uses calcium bentonite clay to get deep into pores and remove any impurities.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Great product. I mix Bragg Raw Apple Cider Vinegar with my Aztec Secret Indian Bentonite Healing Clay for my facial masks (instead of mixing water with the clay). After the facial, my pores are totally clean, and they seem to disappear. My skin also tightens and takes on a youthful glow. The results last for about a week or a little longer." β€”Gloria

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    33. A comfortable, adjustable, and easy-to-use posture corrector designed to help with your back's alignment and stability. In time, it develops your back's muscle memory which will then hold your back straight even without it. It's also discreet enough to wear under your shirt or blouse.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have back issues. Serious ones. Aside from the degeneration and bulging discs, I have an awful hunch that seems to be getting progressively worse since I had my baby. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm walking around looking like the 'Crooked Man' soon enough! Apart from how I look, I am also in constant pain and taking pain medication all day is not an option for me. My doctor suggested a posture corrector to see if I could get any relief at all and although I wasn't very optimistic, I gave it a shot. It took a couple of days to get used to it but I'm so glad I took his advice!! It helps my posture a great deal and my doctor said he attributes the pain relief I feel in my neck and low back to my posture being better. It helps my body remember not to slouch and in doing so has also helped my quality of life immensely!! Highly recommended! Seriously!!" β€”Corinne Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    34. A meditation coloring book filled with 75 patterns and images designed by a freakin' neuroscientist to help focus your brain, improve your mood, and get your creative juices flowing.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I thought it was stupid at first. BUT then I tried it. I colored at night before bed and it was very relaxing, clears the mind and I was able to fall asleep faster! I highly recommend for anyone with anxiety, anyone that doesn't fall asleep easily, or just for fun." β€”Jacqueline S.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    35. A pack of Bottle Bright for an all-natural, biodegradable, odor-free way to clean your water bottle.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" β€”BranchingOut

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    36. A bottle of Mavala Stop β€” a handy little formula that's bitter but totally harmless, so every time you put your hands in your mouth it tastes so bad that you won't want to do it again!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "It's a miracle! I am 45 years old and have tried every product over the years β€” my mom used to put everything imaginable on my fingernails to keep them out of my mouth, my grandma tried to pay me to grow my fingernails out, but still, here I was at 45 with horrible nails. This has been a miracle. I can't describe the taste but will just say that it makes me not want my hands anywhere near my face. Yes, it is difficult to eat finger food with this on β€” I went to Florida recently and had to have my husband peel my shrimp for me. :-) But, it is a small price to pay to break this habit. Photos are before and two weeks after using this product. I know they aren't long and beautiful yet but they are beautiful to me :-) and the longest they have ever been in my life!" β€”Laurie S.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    37. A three-step headlight lens restoration kit to get your cloudy ol' lights clear like new β€” it attaches to your drill so you don't have to actually do any of the scrubbing too.

    Amazon

    Kit includes sanding discs and polishing pad with the compound.

    Promising review: "The headlight on my passenger side was so yellow and cloudy that I actually had a driver get out of his car on a red light and come over to my car to tell me! (Yes, thank you, I know.) I decided to try this kit because of its high rating and lower price. It really works!! The instructions are easy to follow, with photos to show you how the end of each step is supposed to look. Don't be afraid of this if you have no help. I am a grandmother with (at the time) a bad shoulder, who had never done this before, and it turned out beautifully. So I consider it idiot-proof. All you need is a drill, and some auto masking tape, and even if you aren't drill-savvy, it's easy to do. I am so happy with the results, and highly recommend this kit!" β€”C. Ferry

    Get it from Amazon for $11.91.

    38. A super handy cookbook filled with over 150 recipes based on the amazing goodies you always find at Trader Joe's.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've worked at Trader Joe's for a long long time. This cool book helps inspire me to cook something different which is hard after cooking dinner almost every night for near 20 years. Some of the ingredients have been discontinued but if you know the basics of cooking it's easy to find substitutes. Easy recipes and easy to follow instructions." β€”Amazon Customer

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this spray! I spray it on my pillow and sheets before I lay down and it has such a light but great scent! Calms and soothes me so I can fall asleep." β€”CandeceV

    40. A Squatty Potty that'll position you in a way that makes your poop pass through more comfortably!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've struggled with the #2 for the last couple years. I've gone from Defecating Toxic Avenger to 'Dear GOD! I feel like I'm passing the Twin King Guardian Statues'. It's been a sphincter nightmare. No matter what I tried: prunes, more water, high fiber, Taco Bell, even White Castle β€” nothing was working. Usually, in a three-week interval, I'd get very sick and spend three to four hours going to the bathroom nine or ten times. After my sphincter would be tender and I'm damn near positive if this had gone on, it would be the end of me. Then I saw this. I decided to go ahead and plunk down the $25. By day two of using it, I started to feel better and my cramps were gone. I swear to god, when I go on my next road trip, I'm taking the damn thing with me, and IDGAF if my friends laugh at me. This damn thing may have saved my health and possibly my life." β€”DJ_Malsidious

    Promising review: "I made a resolution to eat at home more this year. This planner is helping a lot! Everyone in the house likes knowing what's for dinner and I love that it has a built-in shopping list. It makes the week so much less stressful when I have planned out every meal and have all of the ingredients to make it. Looks exactly like the pic, looks cute hanging on the fridge, very happy with this purchase!" β€”Steve

    43. A Migrastil Migraine Stick that uses aromatherapy and essential oils to help you deal with those overwhelming headaches.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5" β€”Katie B.

    44. A bottle of Olly Sleep gummies β€” a melatonin gummy made with L-Theanine, chamomile, and lemon balm which can help boost your natural sleep hormones, encourage a calming feeling, and support a healthy sleep cycle, making it easier for you to drift into asleep.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how well these worked. Sleeping pills and things to help me sleep haven’t been very helpful in the past. So being skeptical, I took twice the dosage. I ate four of the gummies instead of two. I figured it would help me get a much-needed nap and instead it might as well have caused me to go into a coma. Lol. I took them around 11 a.m. and after my wife tried to wake me up five times, she gave up. It’s now 3 p.m. and we have to go to dinner at her parent's house but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to drive. I don’t know what you guys created but...I’m a huge fan. Knocked me right out! P.S. Only take the correct amount." β€”Austin M
