    1. A boho-inspired ruffle-sleeve midi dress to fulfill all your summer wedding-guest needs.

    Promising review: "I was very happy when I received this beautiful dress. The material is really nice and high-quality. It feels very lightweight but not see-through. I’ve been looking for the button-down dress for awhile. I love that there are two deep pockets that can fit my phone. The ruffles make the dress looks more elegant. The dress has a very good length too. I’m 5’1" and 110 lbs, size small fits me beautifully. I got a lot of compliments when I wore it to a friend's dinner. It is recommended to hand-wash or dry-clean." —RocketMom

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in blue, black, red, and yellow).

    2. A pair of gorgeous reusable iridescent stainless steel straws that'll have you saying, "Plastic straws who?"

    Promising review: "I bought these beautiful multicolored straws and I absolutely love them. They are perfect for my Starbucks cups. Excellent customer service! I highly recommend!" —Jewels

    Get it from Amazon for $11.78+ (available in two sizes).

    3. A magical little spiral notebook to help you map out everything you need to get a passing grade next semester.

    Get it from Typo by Cotton On for $6.99.

    4. 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've 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 has 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!" —Rubicant

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

    5. A set of Tina and Louise salt and pepper shakers your kitchen 100% needs — it would be an a-salt to your cooking not get them!

    Promising review: "These are awesome and they are actually a little bigger than I expected." —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    6. An adorable hydrating and cooling eye stick to help you deal with your bear-y puffy under-eyes.,

    Promising review: "I've tried expensive eye creams and this is my favorite. The photo on the right is day three. I've noticed instant results in the puffiness." —AtP

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    7. A scratch-off bucket list poster so you can track every place you've been, every album you've listened to, every movie you've seen, and every breath you take — well, ok, not the last one.

    Promising review: "This is such a fun product, we’ve had a blast with it. The only thing is there are a lot of rated-R movies on this, so it’s definitely an adult product." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available for movies, travel, and albums).

    8. A super-soft Lucky Supply Co. tank to let everyone know you live that cinnamon sugar life!

    Get it from Unique Vintage for $26 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    9. A soothing SPF 30 Lip Smackers lip balm for the kind of serious lip protection, care, and moisture one might want if say, maybe, they were gonna make out with a Backstreet Boy.

    Promising review: "This is the best lip balm I have ever used. Liked the shape of the container, unlike usual lip balms. SPF 30 and superfruit flavor is just good. The moisture lasts longer than my usual lip balm and my lips feel so soft after few days of application. Highly recommend." —Itsmylife

    Get it from Walmart for $2.48 (available in four flavors).

    10. A pair of sick AF UV-protective sunnies that'll give you so much shade you'll think they hate you.

    Instagram: @sadeaspence,

    Promising review: "Honestly, I get stopped everywhere I go when I wear these sunnies. They're super cute and very reflective." —Sade Spence

    Get them from Amazon for $12.90 (available in nine colors).

    11. A pack of charcoal and bamboo toothbrushes to keep your teeth looking and feeling fresh without creating any of that plastic waste that's basically destroying the ocean.

    Promising review: "I'm in love with these toothbrushes. I know it's a little silly to feel so strongly about a TOOTHBRUSH, but as they are 100% sustainable AND they clean my teeth better than ANY TOOTHBRUSH I'VE EVER USED, I'm pretty excited about this find! And the bristles are SO SOFT. Wonderful. 😍" —J. Lee

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in two styles).

    12. A comfy and loose tank top, because you're a sympathetic person and everyone should know it.

    Get it from Powerlifting Chica on Etsy for $23+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and in 15 colors).

    13. A pack of Oxi Clean White Revive packs that have singlehandedly saved my sheets and towels from losing their luster — you know what I mean, when white linens just get kinda grimy despite how often you wash them? Well these stop that!!

    Promising review: "This is some of the best stuff put on the market. My husband's T-shirts were getting so yellow and dingy just from our water and every time I wash them they get whiter and whiter. The great thing is different-colored clothes too so if you have colored clothes with white and then the white will start getting brighter after time." —Darlene E Bradford

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $6.29+.

    14. A high-temperature-resistant silicone vase you can stick to surfaces without leaving any residue — it's basically a floating vase on your wall!

    Promising review: "Very cute little vase. Would buy it again for friends and gifts!" —LauraW

    Get it from Amazon for $5.88.

    15. An OMG-worthy water bottle designed with a detachable Bluetooth speaker so you can listen to your favorite tunes while you stay properly hydrated.

    Promising review: "So, I’m not sure how I came upon this item when scrolling through Amazon but I’m certainly glad I did. I was looking for fun, quirky gifts for my 15-year-old. I wasn’t expecting too much but the reviews were good so I grabbed it. It is actually pretty amazing. The sound and clarity of the music is 10 times better than I anticipated and the quality is great. The speaker screws off so you can wash the water bottle. Perfect for the beach, games, the park, etc. The volume doesn’t go too high but loud enough. Can’t go wrong." —Carmen Blankenship

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    16. An easy-to-throw-on romper you'll be able to dress up or down for whatever your romping needs require.,

    Promising review: "This romper is great! It came quickly and fit just as I hoped it would. The material is so soft and comfortable and shows off just enough while still being modest. I paired it with some brown and gold accessories to complete the look. I loved it! I will likely buy this in other colors." —Martina Bodden

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 30 colors).

    17. A silicone scrubber brush that'll replace your loofah and face scrubber — plus, it'll stay clean while you stay clean!

    Promising review: "I love these things! I've ordered 10 so far. The first two-pack I split with my daughter. She can only wash her face with water or she gets a rash; this scrubber helps her face feel clean. I use mine on my face with grandma's soap. I use another one for applying face cream at my makeup table. And yet another one to apply foot cream before bed. I can't say enough good things about these and you basically get two for the same price as I've seen just one selling for. I just ordered more, just to have around. I guess you could say I'm obsessed." —Lizzy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+.

    18. An attention-grabbing pair of lace-up gladiator sandals you should probably wear while you're walking with lions on the yellow brick road and not while you're fighting them to the death.

    Promising review: "I love a good gladiator sandal, and these are a rare find at F21 as most sandals have the hard, flat sole. There's a bit of padding, love that the entire sandal (including sole) is the same color. The straps stay tied all day, no problem, no loosening or need for adjustment after I put them on in the morning." —marisa S.

    Get them from Forever 21 for $19.90 (available in sizes 5.5-8 and in tan, red, and black).

    19. A pack of butterfly-shaped sticky notes I am very confident Mariah Carey owns — and if she doesn't do you think if I bought them for her she'd want to be my friend?

    Promising review: "I LOVE these little notes! I leave them for my coworkers when they have messages and they look so much nicer than just sticking a plain Post-it Note on their desk. I love that when you take them off the pad they automatically bend into the shape of the butterfly. No folding necessary!! I only wish they were just a bit more sticky! Sometimes I have to use a little bit of tape to get them to stay. :)" —Rachel Gilks

    Get a pack of 72 from Amazon for $7.81.

    20. A memory-inducing Homesick scented candle to help you breathe in the scents of all your favorite life moments.

    Promising review: "I saw a candle scented 'Books' and just had to try it. First off, it smells like a library of leatherbound books lacking some of that 'old paper' smell, with a cherry orchard in full bloom just outside the open windows. Which is not a BAD thing. I got several odd looks from the other people in my house when I produced this and lit it, with much fanfare. But ALL of us decided we liked it, and that it was a neat, novel scent. Tastes are individual but read the description — if it sounds appealing to you, chances are very good you will like it too. We all did!" —Owen Murray

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in 12 scents).

    21. A pair of adorably grinning running socks that are just proud of you for living that healthy lifestyle.

    Promising review: "Adorable!" —Judy Dollhopf

    Get it from Amazon for $8.87+ (available in sizes M-XL).

    22. A collapsible three-way kitty tunnel — look, I talked with your cat and they're gonna go ahead and need you to get this for them, I'm just the messenger here but you should probably listen to them.,

    Promising review: "My daughter's cat loves this toy! He has been playing in it all week and even just lounges inside of it as he watches our household. Whoever invented this toy knew what cats like. I just ordered a second one to donate to our local SPCA as well." —MysteryMaven50

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in red and blue).

    23. A hilariously adorable hardboiled egg mold to help you bring breakfast and lunch to a whole other level.,

    Promising review: "This is an eggsellent product. At first, I was a little chicken to buy it, but I broke out of my shell and went for it. I'm glad I did because my daughter was very eggcited to see her shaped lunch egg. It ended up being a running yolk at school." —Readmore McCarthy

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in dino, chick, and skull shapes).

    24. A pack of all-natural foot pads infused with wood vinegar extract, bamboo vinegar extract, tourmaline, vitamin C, plant fiber, anion powder, and dextrin — they may help you promote circulation and boost energy.

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.95.

    25. A perfectly designed stapler pin for all your coworkers who you love so damn much (or for any fans of The Office).

    Promising review: "This pin is absolutely wonderful. It's well-made and it reminds me of one of my favorite scenes from The Office. I can hear Dwight yelling, 'Michael!' every time I look at this pin." —Abby

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    26. A coordinating set of cozy peanut butter and jelly sweatshirts, because it's always peanut butter and jelly time when you're with your bestie.,

    Get the Peanut Butter and Jelly sweatshirts from Iconic Duo for $42 each (available in sizes S-L).

    27. A stainless steel Kohler disinfecting wipes holder so you can have your favorite cleaning supplies within arm's reach without their looking like more clutter on your counter.

    Promising review: "Really love this dispenser. I purchased a similar product from another company a number of years ago and have not been able to find a comparable product since. Then, I found this one and have not been disappointed. Love the design and how sleek it looks on my countertop. Keeps those disinfecting wipes handy and tidy. If there is anything that I would change it would be the capacity. Our old one accommodated the larger-capacity rolls of disinfecting wipes and this one will only accommodate the smaller rolls. That's okay, though. We adapted and are happy to do so. Ordering our second one now!" —Rhian Stuart

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    28. A flowy chiffon blouse you can wear to work, on a night out, or on a busy weekend — it's a classic shirt with a little originality.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful blouse! The fabric has a nice feel and drape. Checked all the seams and they’re in good shape — it’s well-made. I am guessing it runs a little large, I’m 5’8” and 140 lbs.,, and the medium is a little big on me. But I’ll still keep it! :)" —Snow lover

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).

    29. A pack of slingback no-show socks perfect for all the slingback shoes your wanna rock but still need socks for.

    Promising review: "I love these. I can confirm that these do not roll up and bunch up in your shoes. Further, they actually don't show past your shoes. I was skeptical about these because I have had many socks like these fail to stay on. These babies stay on all day. The silicone lining does a good job. I'm a size 8 and they fit just perfectly if not a little tight, so if you have bigger feet, expect a tighter fit." —Miri L Kim

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $10.66.

    30. A pocketed maxi dress to fill your summer wardrobe with just enough color.,

    Promising review: "This dress accentuates my curves. I'm a 16 in regular dresses, so I ordered a 3X because of previous reviews. It fits perfectly. The dress is fitted in the chest area and arms, however I'm large-chested. I LOVE it and I will order another color." —Charles Norman Jam Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in pink, blue, purple, and black).

    31. A stainless steel spinner ring discreetly and beautifully designed with an inner band locked into the main band that can be spun manually and provide you with a much-needed distraction when you're feeling anxious and fidgety.

    Promising review: "I have bought two of these over the last year. Ideal for fidgety people and those with a tendency to be anxious. I got one because I was going to publically speak at an event for the first time. I am a fidgety gal and this ring helped me get through a public speech. It is pretty and it is also very functional. The quality is high. It has a lovely opalescence to it. I wear it in dishwater, the shower, and even when I am messing around with paint and alcohol ink. It washes up and remains a smooth distraction from nervous wiggling around. I bought a second one only because I ordered the first one too big. It fits true to size so you do not need to overcompensate." —imisssienfeld

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 4-12 and in six colors).

    32. A string of 10 adorable LED lights you'll have to buy right now if you're a sucker for ridiculously cute things lest people think you're a hippo-crite.

    Promising review: "My daughter loves hippos. This was the perfect gift for her. It was long enough to string across the side of her bunk bed. The color is pinker than the pictures show. If you want an inexpensive hippo gift, this is the way to go!" —Emily J.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in hippo, egg, and shark shapes).

    33. This handpainted ceramic sushi tray, because it's Shark Week, motherf#@%ers!!!!!!!!

    Promising review: "Just got it in the mail today. Looks great! It's better than I expected. The shark head is bigger than it looks and you can definitely fit a cup of soy sauce in the shark mouth. It's definitely big enough. Good quality and super excited to give it to my best friend as a birthday present. Definitely recommend for any sushi lovers out there!" —Abigail I.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.94.

    34. And this Stanley Hudson pin — you heard me, did I stutter?

    Get it from PINNPALZ on Etsy for $3.

    I'm just super emocionada over all this stuff!
