    9. A self-therapy notepad to help you decide if you should blame this shitty day on your mother.

    Promising review: "This is actually a very useful item. I got it as sort of a joke for my sister, but if you actually fill it out when you are angry or frustrated it can help you look at the situation a bit differently. I got one for myself too, so I peel off a sheet and hand them out to my coworkers when they have a hard day. It's fun." β€”Madladluc

    Get it from Amazon for $7.07.

    10. A mulberry silk eye mask for when all you really need to do is block out the haters who have really just f'ed up your day.

    Promising review: "This is totally worth the money. I have tried cheaper eye masks before that were a little lacking β€” they didn't stay put, were not dark enough to block out light, etc. I was surprised at how much more I would appreciate a better quality sleep mask when I received this. It's a large size, so it covers enough of your face to block out any light. It's very dark and opaque, and is thicker than any mask I've used. The plushness and silkiness really make it feel luxurious. I slept great with it on last night!" β€”Laura

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 $11.52.

    14. A set of Bob Ross sticky notes, because even though there are bad days, there are some days when everything just works for you.

    Promising review: "I love a good sticky note. This is a fun set, with a variety of sizes, and well thought out. On one, your note will be the artwork on the canvas. Another has a BR quote. Smaller, thin ones can be flags or are good for quick notes." β€”Joe Mama

    Promising review: "Just love this print/poster. It comes on semi-thick white poster board, not just flimsy poster paper. It comes with a protective good grade plastic covering. So when it's on the wall, it won't get stained or soiled. Laughs for years." β€”Elizabeth H.

    27. A pair of comfy jersey pants, because you're not about to be confined by the discomfort of a fitted pant on a day that is already garbage.

    Promising review: "Aerie is the absolute holy grail of comfy loungewear. Like many of their other items, the fabric of this pant is so, so soft. These pants, in particular, are a bit thinner than many of my other pants from here β€” but it is not a lack of quality but rather just a different material weight. I like that they are a lighter option. Keep cranking out these fabulous joggers, Aerie!" β€”KWM91

    Promising review: "This little guy is way too cute! I bought this for my soon-to-be-born baby sister and I wanted to keep him all to myself. He's super soft and cuddly, which is a definite bonus! His stitching was practically seamless and he comes in a neat little package, perfectly clean and ready to be hugged." β€”Victoria Renee
