    1. A copy of The Big Book of 30-Day Challenges, 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.

    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 $11.52.

    2. A membership to ClassPass for access to studios, classes, and gyms nationwide β€” because exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy and happy people don't just kill their husbands...or anything else bad.


    Your monthly membership gives you access to some of the best workouts in your area. Everything from cycling to barre. Their handy little app lets you reserve a spot, it'll even offer up recommendations and reviews from other ClassPass members. They even have classes online that you stream from the comfort of your home.

    The plan is flexible with a slew of workout options. You choose when you want to workout and where β€” and where can be literally anywhere! If you need to take a break from ClassPass, you can join the Lite program or put your membership on hold. The Lite program is the cheapest option, and therefore the least amount of credits. Read our full review of ClassPass.

    Monthly memberships from ClassPass start at $19 but your first month is free.

    3. A set of silky-soft satin pillowcases that'll help keep your hair from frizzing, your skin from breaking out, and your dreams sweet.

    Promising review: "I love this SOOO MUCH! The hype for silk pillowcases is real! I have a FULL head of hair that is very long, which has also been processed to death. Since my hair is always so dry due to all of the color processes, I like to air-dry it to save it from being damaged further by the heat. Well, my hair would always look like a frizzy mess the morning after, even though I saturated my hair with leave-in treatments and treatment oils. Finally, I decided to try out a silk pillowcase and I'm obsessed! I can now rock my air-dry hair the next morning without looking like I have a rat's nest on my head. The only thing I wish this had is zippers. Since silk is slippery, the cover tends to fall off the pillows often. Other than that, this is perfect. I'm going to bring a pillowcase with me when I travel!" β€”Rubicant

    Get the set of two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in standard, body, and king sizes and in 22 colors).

    4. 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.

    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 $32.49.

    5. An encouraging little book filled with affirmations and pep talks that'll help remind you of just 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 $14.05 (also available in Spanish).

    6. 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.

    Promising review: "I love this journal. I'm not the person to keep a diary, but I always love to reminisce on 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 half years!" β€”Kiersten

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89.

    7. A pack of collagen-infused eye masks so you can combat your lack-of-sleep look and any other general under-eye puffiness.,

    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 looked 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 $6.89.

    8. 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.

    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 20 colors and styles).

    9. 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!!!!

    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. 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 shower head 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.

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

    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 $10.95.

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

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

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $15.87.

    12. A complete five-piece kit with the tools you need to learn and master the practice of Yoga.

    Kit includes two yoga blocks, a stretching strap, a yoga mat, and a yoga towel.

    Promising review: "This is a really nice set and has everything a yoga beginner like me needs to start out. I love that everything matches. It's definitely worth it. Everything seems to be good quality." β€”Kimberly

    Get the five piece kit from Amazon for $27.43.

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

    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 $19.50+.

    14. 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 $2.49.

    15. A cushioned foam acupressure mat and pillow set, because it's literally impossible to function at your full potential when you're suffering from neck and back pain.

    It can also help you deal with stress and insomnia. Check out our review of just how much an acupressure 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 trooper, 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

    Get the set from Amazon for $17.20+ (available in seven colors).

    16. 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: "The most incredible thing I have ever discovered. Yes, they work. You're probably sitting at home and you don’t believe me. Yes, I was you. But they simply do! I put a patch on a zit (I get whiteheads) even when they are under my skin. It sucks all the gunk out. No scars. No picking. These are little miracles and I will never be without them. It is the best money you will ever spend on your face." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get four packs of 24 from $13.29.

    17. An inspiring weekly journal filled with activities, prompts, and encouragements to help you 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 $11.86.

    18. A bottle of sparkly and minty Ritual multivitamins, designed with nine essential ingredients women need to help stay healthy.


    Check out our in-depth review of Ritual vitamins and why we love them so much!

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

    19. 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.,

    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 $9.79+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors).

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

    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 $6.23+ (available in boxes of four and seven).

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

    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).

    22. A very informative book written with the intention of helping you finally get your s#!t together.

    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 $9.94+.

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

    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 29 colors).

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

    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 12 colors).

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

    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 $10.10 (available in 29 styles).

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

    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. Shepherd

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four colors).

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

    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 $14.84.

    28. A pore cleansing clay mask designed using 100% natural calcium bentonite clay for help clearing acne, reducing pore size, and giving you the skin you always wanted.,

    Promising review: "I love this mask, it really works well on my face. I have acne-prone skin and have tried so many different kinds of face masks but this is the only one that works for my acne. The first three days I did not really see any difference but after a week I started noticing brighter, smoother skin and my acne started disappearing. So far I haven't had any new pimples!" β€”Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

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

    Promising review: "I love this little book. Perfect little pick-me-up! I purchased this after my daughter passed β€” these little notes can definitely help me get through the day." β€”Angie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.48.

    30. A stress-reducing 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.

    Get the coloring book and a pack of 10 pencils from Amazon for $19.20.

    31. And a multi-speed wireless vibrator thousands and thousands of people swear by β€” just sayin'.

    Promising review: "Great product! Better than I expected and a great value. It’s a nice size and the speed and different vibration options are great. It comes (partially) charged, with its own carrying bag β€” great for discreet storage. It’s waterproof as well. I haven’t completely submerged it, but the charging port seems like it would be waterproof as well, so submerging may be a possibility. Pros: INSANE VIBRATION!!! Lots of intensity and vibration options, great size for handling, a discreet case for storage and travel, and it charges quickly. Cons: Loud. This isn’t something you would want to use if you’re staying at a friend's house or have company." β€”Amazon Customer
