    1. A flowy V-neck ruffled-hem dress you're ::best Rick Astley voice:: never gonna give up, never gonna put down, and that's never gonna make you cry, never gonna tell a lie, and hurt you.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this dress. It is so soft and comfortable. It is listed as a casual dress but with the proper shoes and accessories, it would look great a little dressier. The fit was perfect and it's a well-made piece." —Sincerely

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and three colors).

    2. A stainless steel 1.5 tbsp coffee spoon and bag clip so you never have to dig up your coffee scoop that's managed to bury itself inside your favorite caffeine powder.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband finally makes good coffee! He kept using different sized spoons, scoops, or measuring cups, and it was driving me bonkers. Never knew whether I was getting my expensive organic decaf strong enough to grow hair or weak enough to mistake for tea. He's such a sweetie to get up and make it, though, so I wasn't about to criticize. Just quietly bought this new scoop which absolutely delights him. It's also very handy that it has a clip that can be used to hold the bag shut. It's heavy enough to be pleasing to hold in your hand, longer than some might like — but hey, it hasn't gotten lost yet in my house and my house eats ANYTHING." —RSFlynn

    Get it from Amazon for $5.86.

    3. A purrfect alloy hair pin that'll have your thick, flowing mane on point.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Adorable! And holds well! I have clipped it as a bun or a half bun and it looks super cute! I might have to order another one as the clasp is a little difficult to unhook so I would like to have a backup. Will order again!" —Mari

    Get it from Amazon for $1.99+ (available in four styles).

    4. A life-changing blank journal — a perfect gift for all those graduates entering the real world and who are gonna need the answers to those difficult life choices...well, it's blank. 'Cause life ain't that easy! Welcome to the real world children!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wonderful gift for my newly minted doctor daughter and a friend who recently became an empty nester." —Deidre Jackson

    Get it from Amazon for $4.74 (and if you want to give them a little more encouragement try this inspiring little book).

    5. A pair of comfy crew socks designed to be worn while eating cheesecake in the middle of the night.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Long! Just keep that in mind. They’re full-size tube socks. But totally high quality and cute design. Great gift!!!!" —007

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75+ (available in all four Golden Girls).

    6. A cozy sweatshirt you'll wanna wear during snack time...which, since you're so damn fine, is all the time.

    RubyBrooby on Etsy

    Get it from RubyBrooby on Etsy for $30+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in four colors).

    7. A super long lasting eyeshadow pencil that's smudge-, water-, transfer-, and sweat-proof — basically, this thing ain't going nowhere.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've never used a pencil before to apply eyeshadow so I was skeptical but this stick's texture and color are awesome. It's soft and creamy and easy to apply. The color angelic has a shimmer to it so it's glam but can be dressed down too. It was easy to rim the bottom of my eye for more drama." —Brian W.

    Get it from Amazon for $19 (available in seven shades).

    8. An investment-worthy non-slip drawer liner you can adjust to hold nearly any and everything in your drawer — the silicone base has moveable divits to securely hug your utensils.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If these weren't so pricey, I'd have them in most of my drawers — that's how much I love them. But we prioritized two of these for the long drawer on our island that was constantly overly full and getting stuck. That's alleviated that problem as it forced us to go through the drawer and get rid of duplicate items and give everything a clear home. We love these things." —Chrystal

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in four colors).

    9. A meowvelous glass coffee mug for when you need your morning milk.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My name is Brett, Devan got me the cat beard mug as a gift. I absolutely love it because I've always wanted to be a cat. Now I am." —Devan Piccone

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    10. A very handy dishwasher-safe nylon five-in-one kitchen utensil that'll act as a slotted spoon, solid spoon, spatula, turner, and a cutting tool.

    Amazon

    Heat-resistant up to 480 degrees F / 240 degrees C

    Promising review: "I had planned to get a few extra kitchen utensils at the dollar store when I saw this in a BuzzFeed article. I decided to go for this instead because we are extremely short on space in our kitchen. I just used it for the first time last night and I gotta say, this was a solid purchase for me. I love that I could flip my chicken in the pan and also spatula all the tahini sauce out of its container with one tool. I do happen to be left-handed, and laughed when I read the review before mine stating how much they didn't like it because they were not left handed. For me, this was a great investment!" —Michael Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. A sturdy do-it-yourself autobiography filled with over 200 questions to help you immortalize some of your amazing life memories.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This book has lots of good questions, with plenty of space for me to write my answers. Easy pages on which to write too. Right now I'm jumping around to answer questions that spark memories right away. Other questions will take more thought. I don't have children, but I think my nieces and nephews will get to learn something about me that they didn't know before. Even if they don't, I found it almost therapeutic to mentally relive some moments of my life and to jot them down. When you put it all down it's kind of amazing to see the full, interesting life I hadn't realized I've lived." —J. Daniels

    Get it from Amazon for $7.59.

    12. An elastic waist flowing maxi skirt designed with a beautiful floral print and POCKETS!!! Ooooh, the things you'll carry!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this skirt! I was so excited to get it in the mail and I wasn’t disappointed!! The color is sooo much prettier in person and the fit is just perfect for me. It is good quality and you can’t beat the price. I will be purchasing this in another color for sure. Totally worth it!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and nine colors).

    13. A pack of travel-sized Hanalei lip treatments — a fantastic formula of natural Hawaiian kukui nut oil, shea butter, and agave and grapeseed oil that'll moisturize and rejuvenate your dry lips.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The price was daunting, but I'd heard great things from magazines and online reviews. I've tried EOS, Burt's Bees, Lip Smacker, Fresh Sugar lip treatments, Dior treatments, Carmax, etc.. This stuff has been amazing! Smells fantastic, leaves a light sugary taste on your lips, and the rose tint is gorgeous and gives me a natural glow. It's thick enough to really treat my lips without feeling like a thick Vaseline. I can still see and feel the difference the day after I use this. Definitely my new HG product!" —Sbullet

    Get it from Amazon for $15 (available in 13 colors).

    14. A high-waisted, ruffled strap two-piece almost* too adorable for words — *almost, because people will still find the words to constantly compliment how great you look.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This suit is super cute. Loved the print and colors. Fits perfect. I am a curvy girl and it fits my body style perfectly. I love how high the bottoms come up. It's not bellow my belly button. It also gives a little check in the back. The top gives you coverage and shows cleavage." —Amber Winter

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes 4-14 and three colors).

    15. A pack of restorative steaming self-warming eye masks designed to gradually heat up, last up to 25 minutes, and help activate blood circulation around the eyes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this product and I have shared it with my family and friends! They feel so good on my tired eyes at the end of a long day on the computer and the light lavender smell relaxes me quickly. I've even fallen asleep a few times with them on. Highly recommend, a wonderful product! They stay nice and warm for about an hour." —Buggs55

    Get 10 from Amazon for $13.99.

    16. A splurge-worthy, Italian-made Senreve Mini Maestra Bag you can take from a crossbody to a backpack with just a clip of the strap.

    Senreve

    Get it from Senreve for $695 (available in 28 colors).

    17. A soothing Thayers lip balm — yup! Your favorite toner makes an equally impressive and restorative lip balm.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The beat chapstick I've ever used. And I've tried a lot. It moisturizes and doesn't make lips even drier. I had to apply it many times a day but that has dropped to less and less as my lips heal from chemical-laden brands. It does have coconut oil in it so if you're allergic, wouldn't work for you." —texasmama22

    Get it from Amazon for $2.79 (available in three scents).

    18. A swiveling six outlet and two USB ports wall plug so you can get everything you powered up.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love it! The swivel feature on this outlet extender is pretty cool. The rotating sockets allow you to plug things into tight spaces. Extra bonus: there are two extra USB charge outlets. It is like a super combo product! Love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    19. A ruffled high-waist, wide-leg jumpsuit every one will think you paid way, way more for.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness. FINALLY a jumpsuit that fits me! I'm 5'7", about 130 lbs., usually a size 0-2. I ordered the XS based on the size guide and it truly fits like a glove. The length is just right. I could probably get away with wearing flats without the bottoms dragging on the ground, but I tend to wear heels anyway. Despite not having a belt, this jumpsuit really defines my waist. It hugs the rest of my curves just right, and the legs flare out at the perfect point. The material is comfortable and the whole thing looks a heck of a lot more expensive than it is. I highly, highly recommend this jumpsuit!" —E.J.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in eight colors).

    20. A set of dishwasher-safe, self-leveling measuring spoons, because baking is a science with very little room for error — I would know, I've made my share of just plain terrible cakes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE them! I do not have any issues with the content of the spoon spilling while I use it. I gently press the level several times to clear everything off the top and it's perfect. It's absolutely not a necessity in the kitchen but it's keeping it simple and I'm not dirtying a knife to use as a level. Great invention. I'm going to buy the measuring cups too!" —Amherst Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in six colors).

    21. A set of construction cone salt and pepper shakers to help you deal with all the traffic that comes through your kitchen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great conversation pieces and functional as well. Cute and worth the price." —Jesse

    Get it from Amazon for $6.25.

    22. A ruffled tie-front summer dress that'll help you deal with all the summer heat in style.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful sun dress. A bit short (mid-thigh) but I expected that and wear stretch shorts under. It’s perfect for my upcoming beach vacation. I am a size 16. Just had a baby and big around the middle. This hides everything. I weigh 217 lbs., am 5’8", and got the large. Fits great!!" —Jaime W.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes S-XL and three colors).

    23. A beautiful Letters to the Bride book you can fill with thoughtful, insightful, and loving letters for the bride as she prepares for her wedding.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This book is the perfect gift for a bride-to-be. A newlywed myself, I knew this would be the perfect gift for our newly engaged friend. I received this same book as a gift on my wedding day, and it was so touching. Perfect for a large group of girls, especially if you have 12 months before the big day. Each girl writes one letter each month. For me, the fact that this had been in process for 12 full months was so touching. Great idea!" —Marianne

    Get it from Amazon for $13.40.

    24. A pair of timeless gradient lens cat-eye sunglasses you'll never stress about losing, breaking, or never getting back after one of your "friends" decides to "borrow" them.

    Nordstrom

    Get it from Nordstrom for $16.

    25. A colorful wireless Bluetooth speaker that's all ears — and also, doesn't it kinda look like Louise Belcher? No? Just me?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! The sound is amazing and the bunny is super cute, doesn’t take much space and travels well. I can listen to audiobooks and music. Very happy with this speaker." —Ana Morales

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in seven colors).

    26. A stunning chain-print pleated skirt for all those summer date night plans you might have this summer.

    River Island

    Get it from River Island for $76 (available in sizes 14-24).

    27. A very handy guide filled with all the information you need to finally get your financial life on track.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Took me from 29-year-old man child to a surprisingly competent adult. If that's not a glowing endorsement I don't know what is." —Vikramaditya

    Get it from Amazon for $9.33.

    28. A delicious-smelling vegan and cruelty-free coconut lip scrub that'll have you lips feeling like luxuriously soft pillows from heaven.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought this on a whim, but no regrets! It smells delicious! The smell reminds me of toasted almonds and almond cookies! I love how you can lick it off (no weird chemicals added), although I just wash it off. But the little bit I have tasted tastes like an almond cookie! I used the lip scrub before bed, and I could immediately tell the difference. My lips are smoother and softer, and my chapstick lasts much longer on my lips. I made my husband use it once, and his lips were also much smoother and super soft after one use!" —Cowie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.90 (available in sizes and colors).

    29. An easy to manage guide of Origami projects filled with 30 guides to help you master the art.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this book! Good quality, simple instructions, and easy to bring along to places with us. This has been fun to do with my kids. My 5- and 6-year-old enjoy doing it with me, but let me make it clear they cannot do them on their own. It's too hard to understand the directions and they get bored if I am not helping them along the way. My six-year-old is starting to learn how to follow the instructions on his own but still needs help every now and then. We like to bring this to soccer games (for the child who is not on the soccer team) and various appointments for the kids to have something to keep them occupied (that isn't an electronic device)." —Josh M.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.95 (and pick up some oragami paper).

    30. A very handy door knob organizer perfect for holding all those things you need to remember when you're running out the door.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was always forgetting to take things with me when I left the house in the morning. I saw this and knew I needed it! I absolutely love this door hanger. The bright red color assures me that I will see it on my way out. It measures 11 3/4"H x 6"W x 1/4"D. There are three pockets and a clip to hold your keys. The front pocket is expandable. There is also a wide strap on the back. I have assigned each of my children their own pocket. I can put their permission slips and money in their pocket and they won't forget to grab them before their dad takes them to summer camp in the morning. I kept the largest pocket for myself, as it seems I am the most forgetful!" —Sharon K.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in sizes and colors).

    31. A beautifully romantic floral print knee-length dress that'll have you looking like the lead in a rom-com.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this dress on a whim. It fits well but if you're busty go up a size. This dress is well made and very pretty. It could be worn in a more dressy event or every day depending on shoes and such." —Mindy Texada

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    32. A very loveable pair of sparkling drop earrings, because you like to wear your heart on your sleeves and on your ears.

    River Island

    Get them from River Island for $28.

    33. A pack of lemon infused pads designed with in a woven cotton that'll gently help remove dirt, impurities, and dead skin cells without irritation.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these little pads! They exfoliate without irritating my sensitive skin and the essence on the pads smells delicious. These are a bit pricey, but I only use one a week as part of my new Korean-inspired skincare routine. My skin does not react well to physical scrubs or harsh exfoliators, but after using one of these my skin is smooth as silk and absorbs my other products better than usual. Since starting my new routine a month ago, I have totally gotten rid of hormonal acne and have seen my hyperpigmentation lessen significantly. Am excited about the long term results." —annev

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    34. A gorgeous woven structured bucket bag you're gonna need to have all over your Instagram.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bag is an IT bag amongst all straw bags. Round bags are very common nowadays. The shape of this bag (bucket) sets it apart from other straw bags. Every time I carry this bag I get tons of compliments. Every time I close it, the inner lining sticks out. I just have to push it in, but who cares! The style with this price makes it worth buying." —Anup Mehta

    Get it from Amazon for $36.88+ (available in two colors).

    35. An inspiring Air Jordan coloring book — just because you can't afford all these sneaks doesn't mean you can't color them in!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband is obsessed with Jordans. This and another were a random purchase to add to gifts since coloring can be fun even at our age. Never knew these would be his favorite gifts! Could have saved $1000 and just purchased all the Jordan coloring books available lol. Thank you, great product, idea, and it was sent nicely so it was intact and not bent when it arrived. You rock!" —Michelle E.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    36. A button-up, V-neck swing dress that'll be the perfect piece to throw on when you don't have anything else to wear.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Classic. If you have bigger ta-tas, it will be snug! But fits everywhere else." —PK

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 10 colors).

    37. A very handy multi-tool designed to be a two-inch ruler, seven position hex wrench, butterfly wrench, flat head screwdriver, cord cutter, and a Phillips head screwdriver — you're about to be the Mother of Dragons and the Mother of Preparedness.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's a pretty good tool! It is NOT thin or weak. This is a durable resistant tool. It comes with instructions in the back of the package and a little key holder. It's a bit smaller than a dollar bill. I am very happy with it! It was a very well received gift. I am buying one for myself! It arrived fast and properly packed." —Mrs. Goldie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.63+ (available in 33 designs).

    38. An incredibly lovely ruffled sleeve midi dress that's a little low cut but will work great with a lacey cami or some fashion tape.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The dress is a cute spring/summer dress to put in rotation. I ordered the pink stripe dress but it’s really a very light red. I am 5’2”, size 4/6, hips/butt, and it was just long enough and a little loose in the waist (my waist is approx. 26.5"). I ordered a medium because the reviews stated the armholes and the chest area were tight. Glad I did for the chest area. It is revealing. It is a very deep V. I plan on wearing a balconette bra. Overall, cute dress." —HCP

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in four colors).

    39. A fantastic little miracle working hair dryer designed specifically for helping you deal with your gorgeous curls.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The best thing I have ever bought for my hair....EVER. This was a game changer for me. I've already recommended this to friends who have ordered it and said the same thing. The picture is with a regular blow dryer vs. with THIS blow dryer. If you have curly hair, you NEED this in your life. No questions asked. Buy it now! Don't read any more reviews, you're wasting valuable time. Just trust me. This is all you need in life." —Kimberly Deloge

    Get it from Amazon for $29.75.
