amazon.com

Promising Review: "I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It comes with the batteries, the lighting feature is magnificent, and the mirrors are high quality. It is very lightweight and compact so carrying it in a purse a breeze. I may get a couple more to have on hand. I have already recommended this mirror to friends and we couldn't be happier." —twilite2000

Promising Review: "Holy Toledo this little vacuum is awesome! I purchased it for those little spills when I don't want to pull out the vacuum. It's powerful, efficient, and it comes with a hose and brush attachment. I hadn't realized that when reading the specifics! The attachment that is on top of the vacuum is great for those small tight places and floorboards." —L.

3. A chunky cable-knit cardigan just cozy enough to throw on over your favorite leggings or jeans this fall.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "This sweater is a great value! I love it. I did order a size up to make sure it was long enough and fit the way I wanted it to, but I probably didn’t need to do that. The quality is great; very chunky and heavy. It's perfect for fall!" —Abby

Get it from Amazon for $5.19+. Available in sizes S-3XL and in 26 color options.

4. A perfectly pigmented cream blush for a dewy glow that's actually easy to apply.

instagram.com

Promising Review: "First things first: I am horrid at applying cream versions of any makeup product. More often than not, I prefer powder products because it is much easier to blend and build on. That being said, this cream cheek is amazingly easy to use. With just my fingers, I can lightly dab the product onto my cheeks and blend. I have a rather fair complexion, and the pigmentation is strong enough that with just a little bit of product, I see a pearly pink complexion." —Reina

Get it from Amazon for $9+. Available in four shades.

6. A stainless steel flask bracelet that'll let you have up to four ounces of your favorite liquor on hand at all times — which will be especially important during the holidays when your entire family starts to argue over politics.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I bought this flask bracelet for my best friend as a joke. I thought it would be of poor quality, but it's actually really good quality! It's like an oversized bangle bracelet and it really works!!" —Amazon Customer

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

8. A foldable storage bench to help you add additional seating, store all those things you want hidden, and then collapse down so you can easily store it when you don't need it.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I have a very small living room and a husband who was constantly complaining because the cat kept sitting on his magazines. When I found this I was excited that I would be able to have extra seating as well as protect my husband's magazines from the kitty. It works exactly as I had hoped. It's sturdy enough for an average sized person to sit when the lid is in place, and it holds a great deal of stuff. It's well made and good quality. I love that it's multipurpose." —Sassus

Get it from Amazon for $25.28+. Available in cubes or benches and in 14 color options.

9. A limited-edition set of flavored Star Wars Lip Smackers. Moisturize, shine, and soften it will.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "These are so amazing! They need to give a raise to the person who created them. The lip balm is tasty and works well. The cases are solid, and the lip balm screws in from underneath so once you're done you can display the cases. I bought all of them and carry them in different bags. They are the best!" —Gigi

Get the set of four from Amazon for $17.99.

10. A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pizza cookbook filled with delicious and unusual recipes that'll be totally awesome! Cowabunga dudes!

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I couldn't be any happier with the first two recipes I tried — pepperoni/pickles pizza and pizza dumplings. Oh! My! Lord! They are phenomenal. I appreciate the basics section that provides context to pizza baking. I'm a novice cook and had never created a homemade pizza before. So much easier than I was expecting. The pizza dumpling recipe was ambitious for my first attempt, but I was surprised that is wasn't overwhelming to prepare. So many fun recipes to try! Love the photography and artwork too!" —Urban Studies123

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Worth the money! The medium fit my 5'1", 135 lbs. daughter so cute! She is a D cup and has a wide rib cage for someone her size. She worried it'd make her look blocky, but it's darling on her! It's called cameo brown but it looked like a dusty burgundy to us.

15. A pack of toothbrushes with charcoal-infused bristles to help whiten your teeth naturally while you brush.

amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $4.21.

16. A lovely illustrated book of some really awesome facts you should probably know for your next trivia night — or the next time you just feel like blessing an audience with all your knowledge.

Promising Review: "This book is awesome! It's filled with great illustrations and lettering types. The information is incredibly interesting too! It’s fun to read and notice all the cute lil' details of Mike Lowery’s artistic aesthetic! I could read it over and over just because of that! I wish I could remember all the interesting facts, they’d be great topics of conversation with my kids! It’s a great book and when you read how he started the process of making this book (in the foreword), it’s even better! Two hands up!! 🙌🏻" —Anonymous

18. A long-lasting waterproof liquid eyeliner that'll stay on well into the dark, dark night — which just so happens to be how black it is.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I've been using this eyeliner exclusively and religiously for over five years and have always received compliments on my cat eye. I have literally been stopped on the street multiple times. I'm somewhat makeup illiterate so this is perfect for anyone with a less than perfect technique. It will last ALL DAY and still look fresh without smudging or smearing even after a long night of partying or going to the gym. The tip is like a fine paint brush — you don't need to click it or do anything. Towards the last bit of it, you can just give it a good shake. It lasts about two months and I wear it every day. Seriously, this is the most important item in my makeup bag. You won't be disappointed." —justine chan

Get it from Amazon for $13.30.

Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

20. A 100% cotton flannel button-up made of a lightweight but warm fabric to help you layer up this fall.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I'm usually a size small (5'5", 118 lbs.) but I ordered this in a size medium. The fit was a bit baggy, but not huge and the sleeves are the perfect length — how a flannel shirt should fit. The fabric felt nice and cozy. It's a very nice shirt, I think as far as a woman's plaid shirt goes it's a nice one." —Kelliar

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+. Available in sizes XS-2XL and in 12 color options.

21. A pack of foot, calf, ankle, and knee cooling and heating sheets made with natural extracts from lavender, sage, rosemary, lemon, and orange to help relieve some of the pain you feel when you've been on your feet for too long.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I discovered these in Japan when my legs starting hurting the last couple days of my trip. The tour guide recommended them. They start off cooling for a few seconds and then provide heat, which is a relief for sore muscles and joints. I have sensitivities to adhesive and am allergic to some band-aids, but have really good luck with these. They also have a pleasant scent. The only con I can think of is I wish they were slightly bigger." —sushigoose

Get an 18-pack from Amazon for $10.29.

Promising Review: "I recently went on vacation to a very tropical area in Colombia and these patches kept the mosquitos away from my child. You can tell that they're good by their smell. They're also natural so I wasn't worried about putting chemicals on my two-years-old. Great product!" —mercho

Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

25. A fun and nostalgic Golden Girls coloring book filled with 100 images from the show that was always your friend.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I'm an artist, and the illustrations in this are really great! All the girls faces are very well done and the details great. It's interspersed with repeat patterns, but that's nice. A lot of coloring books are disappointing on the inside, but this is the bomb!!!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $12.71, Barnes & Noble for $13.22, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Get a couple sizes up. I'm size 10-12 and got it in a 12-16 and it fits perfect! The khaki color looks gold/beige and I love it. My hair blends right in. So cute! I'm surprised by how soft and well made this sweater is, very warm, the fabric is heavy and flattering. In LOVE! ♡" —Lady blonde

amazon.com

Promising Review: "I was skeptical this would work but it worked beyond my expectations. Takes a lot of rubbing but it's worth it cause it saved our dining room table and hundreds of dollars. Thought I'd have to have it refinished or replaced. This took the watermarks out after years. Also used it on a couple of other tables with marks and scratches. Awesome product!" —Al Gould

target.com

Promising Review: "I am familiar with the franchise by watching the cartoon, game show, and playing the computer game. They all emphasize geography and history. The board game is similar but with more players. You can play two to four people and it's easy to set up and play. The game is fun and educational." —magnum17x
