1. A heat absorbing egg timer that'll change color to help you figure out when your egg is soft, medium, or hard, giving you a perfect egg every. single. time.

Promising Review: "I love this thing! It takes all the guesswork out of making an egg the way you want it. When you want soft or medium with little yolk, you can't beat this thing. Large pot, small pot, high heat, low heat, two dozen eggs, one egg — it makes no difference! This timer is always dead on." —Padre Mellyrn

Get it from Amazon for $5.99 or from Jet for $5.99.

2. A journal filled with action-motivating prompts for anyone who loves making lists but needs a little help channeling their creativity.

Promising Review: "Wow! If you're looking for a journal that takes only a few minutes a week this is it! It's beautiful, creative, and filled with thought-provoking questions. It allows for short reminiscing, self-reflection and calm solo time. I wish there were more activity journals out there like this. The color scheme and soft lettering are so soothing and the pictures have a sweetness to them. Love it!" —Ani

Get it from Jet for $13.32 or Amazon for $13.39.

3. An adorable Peter Pan collar dress you could pretend you're getting for Halloween but really you're gonna wear it all the time!,

Promising Review: "I LOVE this dress! I originally got it for Halloween, but it's cute enough to just wear to work. I'm 5'3", weigh about 150 lbs., and am a 32DD. I got a medium and it fits perfectly! The fabric isn't see-through, flows nicely, and falls a few inches above my knees. I often have the problem of dresses being long enough in the front but way too short in the back. I don't have that problem with this dress. Overall, a super cute dress that I'll definitely be wearing more than just on Halloween!" —Noelle

Get it from Amazon for $24.99. Available in sizes XS-XXL and in seven color varieties.


4. A 3D printed, USB-charging nightlight for when you're afraid of the dark...side of the moon.

Promising Review: "I love my moon lamp! I've only charged it once since getting it and have used it as an ambiance lamp in my bedroom ever since!" —Leah

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+. Available in three sizes.

5. A pair of faux-suede ankle booties anyone could easily wear every day for the next few months.

Promising Review: "Best booties ever! So cute, so comfortable! Great in rain, they don't stain, there's room to move, and they're the perfect height. Great with leggings, jeans, or dresses. Amazing value for the money. Can't find them in stores either!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $17.97. Available in sizes 5.5-11 and 33 colors.

6. A kitchen scraper that'll make getting that stuck-on, not-budging-for-no-one food off without having to break a sweat.

Promising Review: "This is such a simple thing but after a while, you don't know how you got along without it. It's an incredible upgrade compared to those tiny, flimsy little scrapers without a handle. It has never failed to remove enough stuck on food for me to feel using it was helpful with cleanup. It's gone through the dishwasher many times without a problem. I've used it frequently for almost a year and a half — it has not broken, dulled, flaked, or had any problems." —Zoya

Get it from Amazon for $4.55 or Jet for $4.55.


9. A super comfy light-support sports bra you can wear when you're running errands, cleaning up, chasing your kids around, or when doing any other form of cardio.

Promising Review: "Unbelievably comfortable and stylish. Looks great under tank tops. I even wore it under a summer dress that had just a little too much cleavage to be showing the parents, and it looked adorable." —MissVicki

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+. Available in sizes XS-XXL and in 11 colors.

10. A plush and cuddly hand puppet so you can act out all the ways that you're just dinomite.

Promising Review: "From what I've seen thus far, based on some pretty rough play, is that these puppets are quite durable. Also, the colors are very vibrant, and the material is nice and soft. I was especially pleased with the size of the puppets. They are easily handled by a 4-year-old, and my hand also easily fits into them. I was hoping they wouldn't be too large for my nephew to handle, and the size turned out to be perfect. He didn't want to put them down!" —Lisa E Cowan

Get it from Amazon for $8.64. Also available in T-Rex and Velociraptor.

11. A spray mop with a reusable microfiber pad that can be thrown into the washing machine after every use.

Promising Review: "I am in LOVE with this mop! I don't have to buy expensive cleaners, and no batteries required. Plus, I have the option of filling the liquid compartment with any cleaner I want or just water. It is tall enough that I am not in pain after mopping, (I am very tall), and it sprays evenly every time. The washable cloths are wonderful and the disposable ones have been great for the bathroom and sticky messes in the kitchen. After buying numerous pricey mops, I have found my cleaning soulmate." —Nicole

Get it from Amazon for $21.78.


13. A hand-painted bunny reading a book who just wants to live in your garden and scare away all the insects trying to eat your plants with ghost stories.

Promising Review: "Super cute in my garden and among my plants. Small and dainty but really good details." —Unsatisfied

Get it from Amazon for $9.91.

14. A pack of slow cooker liners, because maybe someone in your family has allergies that you have to be extra careful about and do everything you can to prevent cross-contamination or maybe you're just lazy and don't want to wash any dishes after you cook — or maybe both!

Promising Review: "Where have these been? I started using slow cook liners about a year ago, and I am hooked. Easy clean up means I don't have to think twice before using my slow cooker. They're not only slow cooker liners, but they are also roasting bags, PLUS veggie and seafood steamers!" —cv

Get a box of 25 from Amazon for $14.18.

15. A water hose holder for a 100% hands-free way to give your dog the bath they absolutely do not want to receive — unless your dog is one of the few who actually likes baths, then congratufuckinglations your dog doesn't stare you down with rays of death when all you're trying to do is get them clean. 🙄

Promising Review: "The hose holder is perfect for washing my SUV and getting to those high points. It's also great for washing the dogs." —Techie girl

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.


17. A tropical print mini dress so you can bring your vacation vibes to work via some very cute office appropriate attire.

Promising Review: "I had my eye on this and I'm so glad I ended up getting it! It's sewn beautifully — no hanging threads. The pattern matches at the seams and it's such a different, fun look. You do need skin-toned undies. I'm 5'2", a 36D, and I got a large. It stops right above my knees and there's no need to unzip. Also works with a jean jacket." —F.A.C.

Get it from Amazon for $17.59. Available in sizes XS-L.

18. A glittering eyeshadow that'll have you glowing like a glistening god descending from the heavens under a halo of light.

Promising Review: "It is beautifully pigmented, shimmery, and just amazing to look at. It can be used as both an eyeshadow and a highlighter, although I prefer the latter. It feels rather chalky and gritty, and when swatched it sort of stays in place rather than gliding across smoothly, but don't let that discourage you. Trust me, it's still worth it. I'm as white as a jar of mayo, but yet this looked beautiful on me as a highlighter. 10/10 will buy other colors." —Kristine

Get it from Amazon for $1.20. Available in eight color options.

19. A USB LED light strip for a sharper image and a more distinct color contrast, all while adding some lovely ambient lighting.

Promising Review: "Insanely easy to install, provides ample lighting, and the USB plug allows lights to be a stand-alone fixture without tying up another wall socket. The USB also lets you turn lights on and off with the TV. Backlighting seems to make the screen seem sharper." —Shaun

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+. Available in three size options.


20. A sequined top, because there is no better season for sequins than every damn day.

Promising Review: "The quality was better than I expected. It's a super soft, cropped sweater/knit top. It hits at the perfect crop length. The sequins give off the prettiest colors; it almost reminds me of a mermaid. The inside is lined with a soft material so the sweater isn't scratchy. This is the perfect pretty little sweater." —Jody

Get it from Amazon for $17.99. (Available in sizes S-XXL.)

23. An adorable mermaid sleeping bag, because your baby should dream about a place under the sea, where they're off the hook, they got no troubles, and life is the bubbles.

Promising Review: "I absolutely adore this sleep sack! My two-month-old is fairly tall so I like that there's plenty of legroom so her feet don't get scrunched up when I tie the end of the tail in a knot. This would be a great gift for a baby shower. My daughter sleeps very comfortably and it even has hand mittens built in, which is wonderful because she likes to scratch her face a lot. She wore it when she did belly time and it was really cute! She was moving her legs and she looks like a little mermaid flipping her fins!" —ana maria

Get it from Amazon for $7.00+. Available in sizes S-M and blue, pink or in a bear print.


25. A cooktop cleaner to safely remove burnt- and baked-on stains from your ceramic and glass stoves.

Promising Review: "I love this product! I have tried everything to keep my stove clean. I wasn't expecting much but I almost did a happy dance after my first try with this. I called everyone in to look at the shine! Love it!!!" —john m.

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

27. A comprehensive guide on the basics of saving, earning, investing, and taking care of money for kids — of all ages.

Promising Review: "This was a totally startling hit. I got this book on the recommendation of a friend who was got it for her grand nephew. I bought it for my 12-year-old grandson and when he opened the gift he was so excited about it! He went to a chair, started reading it, and forgot all about his other gifts. How strange? The book opened a whole discussion with his folks about his allowance, his savings account, budgeting, and cash gifts. This was one of the most amazing gifts that I remember ever giving." —Joyce

Get it from Amazon for $7.98 or Jet for $7.98.


28. A waterproof SPF 50 sunscreen that'll moisturize your skin while protecting you from the sun's rays — which you should do year round! Just because it's winter does not mean it's time to slack off on sunscreen.

Promising Review: "You know how your dermatologist says that best sunscreen is the one that makes you wear sunscreen every day? This is that sunscreen. It feels light on my face, acts great as a moisturizer, (I have dry skin), but MAINLY it's a sunscreen that doubles incredibly well as a face primer. My makeup goes on so smoothly, looks natural, flawless, and stays for the duration of the day. I love this product to the point where I get anxious about opening up a new bottle when I don't have an extra bottle lined up to replace it. I'll even plan out my orders months in advance to make sure I don't go without this." —Brittany L.

Get it from Amazon for $8.80.

30. A set of reusable bags you can hang from your cart because next time you hear the beep think of all the fun you could have packing all your groceries in a super efficient manner.

Promising Review: "I shop at discounted groceries that make you buy your own bags if you do not bring your own. Then you have to bag your groceries yourself! These are amazing! I just ask the cashier if I can put this in the basket prior to them ringing me up. Sometimes I feel like I'm bagging longer than shopping. Cuts my grocery trip almost in half!" —Amazon Customer

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $28.99.

31. And a quilted herringbone vest that'll be almost too perfect for fall.

Promising Review: "No need to go to J.Crew for the expensive one — this is a great material and fits perfectly. For reference, I generally wear a M/L in tops and I got this in a medium. Easy to wear a light sweater or flannel underneath. It's warm and actually herringbone fabric. It's a perfect staple for my fall wardrobe in Seattle!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+. Available in sizes XS-XL.


32. A pack of dry erase tape so you can create a whiteboard where ever you damn well please!,

Promising Review: "Sticks to my front door/paint easily, and I've already used it for notes like 'trash' or 'don't forget charger!' Unsticks very easily without ripping off paint and it's taller than I was expecting. Overall, you can't beat this. It's a fun and great way to replace post-its or combat boredom by drawing on the walls!" —M

Get it from Amazon for $6.99 or Jet for $7.29.
