3. A magnetic mat that'll let you turn any nonwooden flat surface into a super-convenient ironing board.

Promising review: "Great idea! Such a time, space, and hassle saver! I use this pad on the washing machine all the time and it saves me so much hassle. I don't have to drag the ironing board in and out of the closet, and it's right there when you need it. When I'm done with it I just put it on the side of the washing machine. Highly recommend this product!!" —Catherine

4. A backless floral dress with pockets, because all dresses should be this pretty AND have a convenient place to casually put your chapstick, keys, phone, hands, and anything else you need within arms' length.

Promising review: "I was shocked at how high-quality this dress is. I'm usually skeptical about buying dresses from Amazon, but this one blew me away. The material is very thick and the straps are very comfortable and adjustable. 15/10 would recommend this dress to anyone wanting a simple, formal dress." —Reiana Barton

Promising review: "The skin fits like a glove. Hardly noticeable on the keyboard. All the shortcut finders printed on the keys make it way easier to learn Mac OS. I would recommend this product to anyone. The cover will also help protect your keys from dirt." —Rocky

Get it from Amazon for $6.90 or from Walmart for $6.99.


8. A set of Loteria Mexicana, because there is no greater joy in this world than when you get to scream "LOTERIA" into the faces of all your cousins 'cause you're the freaking champ and they can eat that la rana card they kept saying wasn't gonna get called.

Promising review: "This is one of the most fun and cheapest ways to bond with family and friends. I personally love bingo — we play it at birthday parties and at Christmas. The first time I saw Lotería Mexicana was at my aunt's house in Chicago. My aunt is Mexican and told us all about it (it's basically just like bingo). I had no idea it existed. All my family started playing and loved it, so I went online to purchase it. Now I can't wait for Christmas to play with all my siblings. It's awesome because it has 20 cards, which means 20 different people can play. I totally recommend this product!" —Jayne

9. A pack of perfectly scented lavender essential oil towelettes to provide a relaxing aroma, remove makeup, soothe acne flare-ups, act as an insect repellent, or throw into your dryer to infuse your laundry with a calming scent.

Promising review: "I've been using these for when I am on a long-haul flight or just not in a position or location to shower daily. The fragrance is clean and not overpowering and two towelettes basically wipe the entire body. P.S. I travel a lot, thus my bathing predicament at times." —Sumo Gal

Get a bag of seven from Amazon for $7. Also available in an orange scent, lemon, eucalyptus, peppermint, or a pack of all the scents.

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.


11. A rosewater toner free of chemicals, preservatives, and artificial fragrances, so your skin gets instantly hydrated.,

Promising review: "I have suffered from rosacea for about two years now. Most recently, it has turned into acne rosacea. I have tried oral antibiotics, prescription creams, over the counter creams, etc. with no results. After a horrible flare, I decided to try rosewater. After only using it for one day, the redness decreased by about 40%. The acne began to dry up, but my skin did not! Day two and I am at a 60% improvement in redness and acne is almost completely gone!!! I LOVE this product! My skin feels soft and cool after using. I HIGHLY recommend this product for anyone suffering from rosacea. Oh, and the scent is light and dissipates after the product dries." —JmeF

Get it from Amazon for $10.88.

12. A Mickey Mouse waffle maker for anyone who watched the Disneyland Fun version of Sing-Along Songs and always got a little rumbly in their tumbly when they saw those lucky AF kids eating Mickey waffles.

Don't know what the hell I am talking about? See for yourself here. And buy the DVD of the best Disney Sing-Along Songs ever here.

Promising review: "We love this waffle maker. I use it two to three times a week to make waffles for my kids. They cook quickly and thoroughly and look like Mickey every time! Absolutely no complaints about this product and would highly recommend it." —Kindle Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

13. A cozy Carhartt beanie to keep you warm during all this winter nonsense.

Promising review: "I bought this in charcoal and lost it on a trip, so I bought the exact color again because I missed it so much. Now I'm back to buy it in more colors. It's thick (because it's a watch cap) but I wear it year-round in Dallas or Chicago. It's my favorite hat. The fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn't lose its stretch after washing." —CE

Get it from Amazon for $9.99. Available in 25 colors.


15. A wooden cord organizer, because it's a new year and a new you — and by new you, I mean you're gonna stop spilling your coffee all over your desk while you're scrambling to find and move all your chargers.

Promising review: "This attached nicely to the inside door of my computer cabinet and has kept our multiple cords organized. The wood-grain goes nicely with our cabinet. The design includes two larger slots on the ends with three smaller slots inside. Looks very nice and works great at an affordable price." —Flo Monroe

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

16. A five-year memory book to keep track of all the eventful and wonderful memories you make on a daily basis.

Promising review: "This vibrantly colored little journal is exactly what I was looking for! It's a perfect size and the lines are just the right spacing. My handwriting is of average size and I have enough room to write one or two short-ish sentences in each entry. For journalists who lose steam easily (like myself), it's the perfect amount of space to write the day's highlights while not feeling like you need to fill the whole blank page staring back at you. Overall, I am very glad I purchased this journal and I think it will be a great keepsake in the future!" —Audrey O.

Get it from Amazon for $11.75 or Barnes & Noble for $12.58.

17. An adorable happy hippo planter that's just succutelent.

Promising review: "I love this so much I bought three of them. Adorable and perfect for air plants, but could also be used for different things like paper clips or anything small!" —Tina W

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

18. A comfy sweatshirt, because what I know for sure is that I am going to need a pretty big loaf of bread to soak up all the feels Ms. Winfrey gave me during the Golden Globes.


19. A wonderful book filled with the life and times of Bill Murray — finally, Big Ern is above the law!

Promising review: "Snippets from his life, quotes galore, facts from his various projects, pictures, and other celebrities' opinions and recollections of Bill through the years. If you're a Bill Murray fan, you'll adore it. If you're not, what the heck is wrong with you???" —Courtney

20. A pair of wool-lined gloves designed to make working your cell phone (or any other touchscreen) in even the most frigid of temperatures a little more fun.

Promising review: "You can't beat the price and quality! I was taking a trip to NYC during Christmastime, so I needed cold weather gloves, but I'm from California so I didn't want to spend too much. These definitely kept my hands warm and they weren't bulky." —Kathy Leung

Get it from Amazon for $8.99. Available in six colors.

22. A pack of pickle-flavored freezer pops so you can have everyone's favorite summertime treat on hand — don't act like you don't drink that deliciously salty juice from the jar.

Promising review: "I really love pickles and often drink the juice, especially when I get headaches. I didn't know what to expect but I'm glad I purchased these. So delicious and they have a little kick to 'em, like the pickles with extra peppercorns or garlic at the bottom of the jar. My electrolytes tend to stay on the low side (I'm keto) and I can see these helping tremendously. My biggest problem may be not being able to stop at one." —Tya Jean

Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $5.49 or a 48-pack for $13.49.


23. A set of 20 LED floral lights to help brighten up your space in the prettiest way possible!

30. A box of delicious Alice in Wonderland tea bags, because it's always teatime somewhere.

Promising review: "Such a great flavor. I feel special every time I drink this fruit-forward and yet still hearty tea. It was given to me as a gift a few years ago and I have not stopped purchasing it since. It is always a conversation piece when I offer it to guests." —Carrot

Get a box of 20 bags from Amazon for $19.50.


31. An adorable pack of sticky notes for all those purrrrfect occasions when you need to leave a reminder for someone to check meowt.

Promising review: "These are very cute sticky tabs. They are about an inch and a half tall. I find them perfect for marking pages in books or magazines, and they have just enough space to jot down a little note. The box is very easy to put together, there are picture instructions included. I have given these as gifts and they are a big hit!" —Jes

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $1.87.

32. And a weighted blanket that provides light pressure to securely help you sleep better.

Promising review: "I bought this to help with my sleep. I didn't want to invest in a larger, more expensive blanket until I knew if this could be a solution to my sleep issues through more natural means. It's fantastic! I now fall asleep in five to ten minutes instead of my usual 30 to 45 minutes. I WILL be investing in the larger size blanket. Totally worth the price!" —JB

Get it from Amazon for $129.70+. Available in three sizes and two colors.
