    1. A coloring book filled with 37 of the most notorious serial killers the world has ever known...and you get to bring them to life with your mad coloring skills.,

    Promising review: "This book is amazing!!!! I wasn’t sure what I’d get, but I took a chance. This exceeded my expectations! It’s a must-have for any serial killer fan. The illustrations sum up the murder history so well." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.92.

    2. A comfy set of pajamas you can wear while you're coming down the stairs, while you're coming down in pairs, or while you're chasing teddy bears.,

    Promising review: "These pajamas are really soft and so comfy! But definitely order a size up. At Forever 21 I would be a size small in pajamas, but I ordered these in a medium (based on other reviews) and they fit perfectly. I’m 5’4” and 138 lbs. They’re good quality and very cute!" —MJfan1958

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 28 prints).

    3. A stainless-steel dumpling maker you could probably also use to make delicious mini empanadas.

    Promising review: "Perfect for making ravioli, I returned my big/fancy KitchenAid ravioli maker and bought this — all my frustrations went out the window. This is so much simpler and it works easily (with no waste). Good quality workmanship, it should last a long time. If not, the price is right to replace." —Jay Tee

    Find a slew of empanada recipes here!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. A splurgeworthy pair of Play x Converse Comme des Garçon sneakers, because you're a cool kid who will rock the hell out of these.


    Promising review: "Super stylish, super easy. They go with basically everything, perfect for an added pop and a dash of cool. Definitely recommend to anyone looking to drip with style without shoving it in everyone's face that you're stylish — very subtle." —Ams5gd

    Get them from Nordstrom for $135 (available in sizes 4-11 and in black and white).

    5. A button-up, tie-front henley that'll quickly become your go-to top when you're throwing together a lazy OOTD.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).

    6. A set of multi-tool hair clips — look, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's a screwdriver, it's a nail file, it's a bottle opener, it's a wrench, it's Superman...I mean, a hair clip!

    Promising review: "These work really well as hair clips, the grip is great. I've given these to two friends who also loved them. The bottle opener takes two moves but works. The knife works to open boxes, tape, simple stuff, a bit hard to grip for anything tougher (though I don't know what you'd expect, lol). Nail file works. Unlabeled, curved ruler is silly." —Sierra Wolf

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $26.85.

    7. A magical little cup you can turn into FOUR COOKIES! You heard me! Just add a little oil, water, and microwave that shit! In 30 seconds you'll be eating your happiness.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. Not only do you not have to worry about the ingredients inside the little desserts, but they taste amazing! If you're like me and have a big sweet tooth but don’t want to break your diet or health-conscious lifestyle for a little sweet treat, these are for you! I will definitely be purchasing again." —Sabrina

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.96 (available in six flavors).

    8. An absolutely perfect ruffled, tie-neck little black dress you can also get in red or yellow — because maybe you have enough LBDs.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress. My favorite part about it is the double ruffle detail on the hem. Perfect for a date night or holiday party." —The Fabulous

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in yellow, red, and black).

    9. A T-shirt so epic, so iconic, that no words I use to describe it would ever be enough.


    Get it from fresh2death_apparel on eBay for $13.99 (available in sizes S-4XL).

    10. A multi-speed wireless vibrator thousands and thousands of people swear by — just sayin'.

    Promising review: "Great product! Better than I expected and a great value. It’s a nice size and the speed and different vibration options are great. It comes (partially) charged, with its own carrying bag — great for discreet storage. It’s waterproof as well. I haven’t completely submerged it, but the charging port seems like it would be waterproof as well, so submerging may be a possibility. Pros: INSANE VIBRATION!!! Lots of intensity and vibration options, great size for handling, a discreet case for storage and traveling, and it charges quickly. Cons: Loud. This isn’t something you would want to use if you’re staying at a friend's house or have company." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Nordstrom for $495 (available in black and tan).

    12. A charming and delightful cookbook that'll fill your kitchen with so many yummy dishes your guests will be begging you to drop them while they're still hot.

    Promising review: "One of the greatest cookbooks I've ever purchased." —luke

    Get it from Amazon for $14.22+.

    13. A super-comfy midi-length pencil skirt designed with a high waist and an adorable little faux bow front.,

    Promising review: "It has stretch to it but without looking like stretchy material. The material is nice quality and has some spandex in it. It's machine-washable on cold but you can't use it in a dryer or iron it, it's drip-dry only. I'm going to order another in a large. All in all, it's a nice-looking skirt and if you're over 5'5" it should fit you lovely." —Angela

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-4XL and in 24 colors).

    14. A cotton T-shirt to cheer yourself up with when no one calls you on your cell phone.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $25.

    16. A sherpa-lined oversized denim jacket so you can keep up with that jean-jacket life, even when the temperatures start to drop.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter, to take to college. Where she's at, it's cold, not freezing, but cold. So far she says it's perfect and she loves the oversized fit. It actually keeps her warm." —Carmen

    Get it from Amazon for $42.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in dark and light denim).

    17. A pair of acrylic pendant earrings to give yourself a little ear candy.

    Promising review: "I usually do not wear cheap earrings, but these are cute, light, and very dressy! Love the green color." —Jaclyn Paez

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    18. A pair of investment-worthy Gucci Princetown Loafer Mules, because it's way more satisfying to slide into these than into those DMs.


    Promising review: "I LOVE these mules. So classic and timeless. I had heard they ran small, so I ordered the 38.5 (my usual size is 8). However, since the upper portion runs a little long, you can’t slide your foot in as far as you’d think. My heel was riiiiiggt at the end, so I returned for the 39 because I hate that look where someone has stuffed their too-big foot in a shoe. With the 39 I have more room and have noticed they do loosen a bit as you wear them." —FrancescaGill

    Get them from Nordstrom for $680 (available in sizes 4-12 and in seven colors).

    19. A DIY model library so beautifully intricate and detailed you're gonna want to build a life-sized model for yourself.

    Promising review: "This model has been such an enjoyable build. As of now, I am not completely finished, having put around 20 hours into it, I'd say I have another eight hours to go. The pieces are all vibrantly pre-painted, with the exception of one large base piece. The glue and tweezers it comes with are perfect for the job. The cloth I had gotten for the couch was not large enough, but I improvised by using another color cloth (that also came with the kit) for the seat. The attention to detail in this little study is just first class. I even recognized books that I have read/purchased in the past within this model! I am not experienced at all with building wooden kits and I was still able to do this one perfectly with minimal struggle. I will certainly be buying more Robotime models in the near future; the greenhouse one is next!" —B.R.J.G.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four designs).

    20. A set of practical cork coasters to show the world how sophisticated you are.

    22. A very fancy-looking studded blazer you can rock as a barely-there dress or layer with your favorite T-shirt and jeans.

    Promising review: "This is a pretty awesome statement dress/jacket for the price. The fabric is thick 'velvet' (a little stiff) that actually lays pretty nicely and doesn't wrinkle as many similar-priced jackets might. The studs are flat but VERY sparkly. Could be awesome for NYE!" —Tara Mo

    Get it from Amazon for $34.56+ (available in sizes XS-L).

    23. A stunning 18K gold and pavé diamonds–encrusted hoop ring you'll never, ever, ever, wanna take off!

    29. A glamorous faux-fur coat, because winter is coming and you still need to look good even as the temps dip!

    Promising review: "Super cute! I went on a girls trip to Las Vegas and it was going to be in the 30s at night. I figured it's Vegas, why not wear a fun fur coat? I got tons of compliments on it while we were there. It looks very nice. Doesn't scream I'M FAKE. I would 100% recommend this for the price. I washed it on the gentle cycle upon returning from my trip and hung it to air-dry. Looks great!" —jackie

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes 2-10).

    Get it from Amazon for $10.88+ (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors).

    32. A warming ice cream scoop that'll be the answer to all your problems, because let's be real: Everyone's only real problem is getting that damn hard ice cream out of the tub.

    Promising review: "Pleasantly surprised and impressed by how great this works. It slices through the hardest ice cream, straight out of the freezer. Liked it so much, I bought more as gifts." —South Texan

    Get it from Nordstrom for $85.

    36. A growth-promoting lash serum you apply like you would your favorite mascara to get help with thickness, fallout, and length of your eyelashes.,

    Promising review: "I was super skeptical of this product at first because of the price, BUT HOLY HELL DOES THIS STUFF ACTUALLY WORK. LIKE, DAMN. I had it for over a week now, and I've been using it consistently day and night. I first use it like a mascara on my top and bottom lashes, and because it hasn't bothered my eyes at all, I then use my ring finger and gently rub it into my lash base, with my eyes closed of course. I've seen serious improvement: lots of new lash growth, the lashes I already had are longer and fuller-looking, and I'm no longer having an issue with my lashes falling out as often as they were. I've also been using it on my eyebrows, since I'm definitely guilty of over-plucking, and it's working just as well on them too." —ItsGrey

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    37. A treat-yo'-self-worthy faux fur sleeping bag, because if I'd known these existed I would have been way more into camping my whole life.


    Promising review: "A bit pricier than some other cozy blankets but it's absolutely worth the money! I originally just bought it for a throw but I've been ditching my comforter and just sleeping with this! It makes me feel like I'm sleeping in heaven with a constant warm smile on my face! Love it." —Jess1133

    Get it from Nordstrom for $199 (available in gray, ivory, and pink).

    38. An adjustable cooling stand for your laptop designed with five quiet fans, LED lights, and two USB ports.

    Promising review: "This product works great. I like the option of being able to turn on just the four outside fans, just the middle, or to have them all on at the same time. It's relatively quiet, although I do notice it hum in the background as you would expect with any fan motor but my customers on the phone can't hear it so I'm ok. The size is compatible with all computers. It's actually more durable than I expected. Works great." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    39. A gorgeous, intricately embellished Free People midi skirt you can wear just as easily on date night as you can paired with sneakers at Target.

    Free People
