    1. A little A-line midi dress in a soft AF lightweight cotton with fluttering ruffled sleeves and a zipper closure.

    Promising review: "Absolutely beautiful!!! Looks exactly as pictured. I’m 5’11” and normally a size 10/12 and the large fits like a glove!" —Jennifer M.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in blue and white).

    2. A waterproof liquid eyeliner to help you get a perfect winged line thanks to its handy AF stamp design.

    Promising review: "I wear this every single day. I don't even consider using another eyeliner! It really makes you stand out! The actual eyeliner is easy to put on and dries super quick, and the stamps are easy to use! If you're on the fence about it, get off the fence. This is the greatest makeup product in my kit. Every dancer I work with always asks to use it before we go on stage!!" —Jess M Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99 (available in six colors).

    3. A whole pie of pizza socks for keeping your toes warm like they just came out of the oven.

    Promising review: "My 66-year-old husband flipped over these socks. Life is short, wear FUN socks!! They are a little shorter, and much more comfortable than most other socks — not as binding on the top and not as tight at the ankles. This is a great value and a great sock." —FoxyNonna

    Get four pairs from Amazon for $25.99 (available in women's sizes 5–9 and men's sizes 9.5–13). You can also get them by the slice for $14.99.

    4. A copy of Dos — a game not only capable of helping you advance your Spanish language skills, but also your math skills by making you do some quick calculations before you can win.

    Promising review: "Like Uno but with math, you have to add up the numbers to lay down cards, and matching colors is only a bonus. It's worth the money, but it's for ages eight and up." —Planetary Visitor

    Get it from Target for $4.29.

    5. A super cute cutout bathing suit that'll have everyone asking, "Where did you get that?"

    Promising review: "Love this swimsuit!! All my friends were like, 'Wow!' And a couple even ordered after they saw mine! I’m 5’8” and 138 lbs. and ordered a medium, great fit!" —terri l. zacha

    Get it from Amazon for $25.55 (available in sizes S–XL and in seven colors).

    6. A spiral bound notebook designed to help you keep track of all your damn passwords because resetting them every time but not being able to use your last five passwords is basically an endless spiral into the depths of hell.

    Promising review: "This little book has room for 116 websites in ABC order, plus four more pages for extras. It also has lines for at least six changes in passwords for each site. It is very important to be able to change passwords and keep up with them. I don't think it can be beaten for the price. I ordered extras for gifts." —Sherry

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    7. An adorable impact-resistant iWatch case for when you need your watch to be all ears — all Mickey ears.,

    Promising review: "The watch case is super adorable! I also like that it provides some protection for my iWatch. I have an annual Disneyland pass, so this is perfect when I wear it to the park. It also fits the watch perfectly and does not fall off like other third-party watch cases I've tried. Would also make a great gift." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $7.89.

    8. A gorgeous woven basket so you can hide your less than cute plant pots while keeping your boho aesthetic.

    Promising review: "These particular baskets were a great price compared to other brands/sellers, and look exactly like the picture. I ordered the large ones and put in some plants that are in 10" pots. I would definitely purchase again." —Christi

    Get it from Amazon for $7.48+ (available in three sizes).

    9. A Funko Pop! doll that'll just DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Do Do nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah.

    Get it from BoxLunch for $10.90.

    10. A pair of the most beautiful earrings ever made because they have the face of the one and only Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez who, if you don't already know, is the bestest world cup player ever!*

    *According to me, a non-expert in all things futbol-related.

    Get it from YOOAK on Etsy for $8+ (available in six styles).

    11. A simple and comfy ruffled hem midi dress you just might live in all summer long.

    Promising review: "Cute dress, got lots of compliments on it the first time I wore it. Can dress up or down with shoes and accessories. I wore it for a Friday look when I wanted to look put together but not like I was trying too hard, haha. I am 5'4" and the back/longest part of the hem hit me at the top of my heel/back of my ankle. The fabric is soft, jersey material, but heavy enough that it doesn't cling and does have a nice movement/flow. A good loose-fitting garment for summer." —Minnette Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in eight colors).

    12. A pair of adorable nonslip liner socks to help keep your shoes comfy and your toes cute.

    Promising review: "Bought these for my daughter and she just loves them! Very cute and they fit nicely. I've washed a few pairs already and they are holding up well." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $2.15 (available in five characters).

    13. A stainless steel tongue cleaner, because bad breath is a thing and it's a thing you should not have.

    Promising review: "This is so gross, but I love it!! I am always concerned about bad breath (especially because as a teacher I'm always up close talking to students all day), and make sure that I brush my teeth after eating, have gum, mints, floss, etc. I heard scraping your tongue is better than brushing it, so I figured I'd give it a try. It comes in a cute travel pouch, and so after brushing my teeth in the morning, I gave it a try. It's super easy — you literally just hold the handles and scrape your tongue. It only took a few times to get used to it, and then I was merrily scraping away, grossing myself out with all the crap that was still left in my mouth even after brushing. It's stainless steel, so it's not like you're left with a minty fresh mouth after using it, which is kind of weird but my mouth definitely felt cleaner, and after drinking coffee that's always a good thing." —Andrea L.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.84.

    14. A longish lasting Reuben sandwich dog toy so you can do a line for line, scene for scene, reenactment of When Harry Met Sally but with an entire doggy cast.

    Promising review: "This bark toy is super squishy, plushie, and stretchy. The vibrant colors and two squeakers inside made my pup so attracted to it. He loves playing with it. The corduroy material and the bungee cord, which is strung through all the layers, seems so durable and fluffy but my pup was strong enough to tear it within a week of use." —Arwamoiz

    Get it from Target for $8.99.

    15. A pair of adorable hair pins to make sure your hair is having a hopping good day.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $1.90.

    16. A pair of metal frame sunglasses designed with an uber reflective mirror lens — so they'll actually serve as a two-in-one!,

    Promising review: "I am officially obsessed with SojoS sunnies. They're great quality and inexpensive. The color is super cute and they're definitely unique." —Tiffany Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $13.96 (available in 12 colors).

    17. A lightweight cotton cropped ruffled tank to make your summer wardrobe look like it traveled through time.

    Promising review: "After all the reviews I wasn’t sure which size to get but I went with a medium and it was a perfect fit! I am usually a S/M depending where I shop. I love this top. It’s cute, simple, comfy, and just the right amount of flirty. It can be worn with a skirt, shorts, or jeans. I am 5’3"ish and 130 lbs. The material is not thin at all. The buttons can also unbutton so if your twins are large you can unbutton the top button. Perfect for summer. Buy it! :)" —JS

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in sizes M–XXL).

    18. A helpful AF book filled with gorgeous illustrations and bits of practical life advice to help you stay motivated and inspired.

    Promising review: "This book is like a cool, comforting breeze. Not only is it packed with tons of useful advice for living an authentic, stress-free, and magical life, but the artwork is dreamy and beautiful. I've long been an admirer of Yumi Sakugawa's art, and this book is a must for any of her fans. As someone who has struggled with a poor self-image, Yumi's section on fashion and dressing to please yourself is so incredibly helpful to me. Whenever I feel down about myself, all I have to do is see her gorgeous drawings of women of all shapes, expressions, colors, etc. (bunny women!), I feel so much more empowered and, yes, beautiful. I also love her section on decorating your home since I've recently downsized to a very small apartment. This book will always remain a particular treasure." —Echo

    Get it from Amazon for $11.92.

    19. A pair of outfit poppin' cherry drop earrings for your all-American summer.

    Promising review: "These were so cute online and better in person! I love how the cherries look amazing on. Gives your outfit more of a statement look." —Ariona M.

    Get them from Forever 21 for $5.90.

    20. A very truthful little keychain, because your passengers have no idea the ride you're about to take them on.

    Get it from BoxLunch for $6.32.

    21. A super comfy and *almost* too cute two-piece bathing suit to take on your next beachside vacay.,

    Promising review: "This swimsuit was perfect for my vacation! I loved how it fit and the material was very comfortable. I’m 5’4", 190 lbs. and I ordered a 12." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes 4–14 and in five colors).

    22. An adorable DIY donut making kit you can make using just your microwave and some water.

    Promising review: "My daughter absolutely loves these Japanese Candy Kits. She learned about them by watching videos of other kids exploring the kits on YouTube and when I saw them on Amazon I knew I had to surprise her! This is the second kit we've used and both have been so different and fun. The pictures in the instructions are easy to follow (the words are in Japanese) but if you need help there are plenty of step by step videos if you google them. This kit makes four donuts (two vanilla, two chocolate) and three different kinds of icing (vanilla (coconut?), strawberry, and chocolate) and it also comes with assorted sprinkles and cookie crumb toppings. I'll be purchasing more of these, for sure!" —CraftyNicoleH

    Get it from Amazon for $3.77.

    23. A four-quart electric ice cream maker that'll have you making the yummiest of yummy ice cream this summer...and fall...and winter.

    Promising review: "I've used this twice since getting it three weeks ago. I used one of the recipes included for the peanut butter ice cream. It was great. I've had an issue with it not stopping after around 30 minutes like they say, but I'm always right there, so I stop it myself. I thought the issue might be that I didn't use enough ice or salt, so I used more the second time. The ice cream did thicken more that time, but the machine didn't stop itself. To me that's not a huge deal because I make sure I'm right there in case of ice jamming, etc. My kids love the homemade ice cream. Does it save money? Maybe because you are making a gallon. One thing for sure is that you know exactly what's going in it and you always have the option to find other recipes if you want to make it healthier." —AdMaMom

    Get it from Walmart for $24.26.

    24. A super fun set of conversation starters for helping you and your partner put your phones down and talk.

    Promising review: "Highly recommended for married couples! We spend too much time on our phones and computers, and this helps to bring us together. Even after being married 25+ years, I loved hearing my hubby's answers to the questions. Some questions really get you thinking! I recommended it to my friends, and I think they will be getting them too!" —Judy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. A button-down bodycon maxi dress designed with adjustable straps and a V-neck to make it quite possibly the perfect summertime date night dress.

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I'm really short (4‘10”) and for me, it did end up fitting perfectly as a maxi dress, which is what I wanted! Very flattering and soft material! I def recommend. The green was more of a dark forest green and not an army/camouflage green as shown in the images but I am still happy with it." —kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $15.59+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 13 colors).

    26. A hilariously basic T-shirt for when you're ready to celebrate this summer, your summer!

    Get it from Twy La Mae Shop on Etsy for $34.53+ (available in men's and women's sizes XS–XXL and in long sleeves).

    27. A pretty floral metal headband that just might be the perfect summer accessory.

    Promising review: "Love this headband!!! As an adult, I was nervous to get one but turns out it's pretty stinking cute!! Plus it has the best hold so far of all the ones I've ordered. Been playing a lot with them and this one is my favorite." —AshleyR

    Get it from Amazon for $1.56.

    28. A pair of Bermuda-style denim shorts, because they're so freakin' trendy right now, but you can't just be blowing all your cash on all these damn trends.

    Promising review: "I ordered these for my trip to Jamaica. My thighs are big and they rub, so I wanted some shorts long enough to not cause chafing but not too long because of the heat. These fit fabulously! So glad I ordered the 14 instead of a 16. I have a few more trips coming up, so I'm going to order these in different washes." —J. Lawal

    Get it from Amazon for $13.29+ (available in sizes 1–24 and in nine colors).

    29. A handheld mirror that doesn't even need to see you to know exactly how good you look.

    Get it from Typo for $12.99.

    30. A pair of retro-inspired cat eye sunnies to keep you looking cool AF — even when you're sweating balls.

    Promising review: "I saw these cute glasses and thought that they would be of a cheaper quality due to the price, but I was very, very surprised. They are made of heavy plastic and seem to be very sturdy. The lens in the glasses are thick and very dark. I also love the fact that they send them in a little pack to protect them and also a cleaning cloth. I wear these glasses every day and feel like a million bucks wearing them. I think these are some of the best sunglasses I have ever bought. I am actually ordering a few more pairs soon since they have started my sunglasses addiction." —APeterson

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98 (available in four colors).

    31. A comfy cotton T-shirt that knows you better than a T-shirt ever should.

    Promising review: "Just do yourself a favor and get this shirt! Fits great, looks so cute!" —Shanna Dawson

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in men, women, and youth sizes and in five colors).

    32. A cruelty-free and vegan matte liquid lipstick — its proceeds will benefit families that have been separated at the border.

    Get it from Lipslut for $19.95.

    33. And a darling little handpainted Dobby bookend, because he just wants to protect your Harry Potter book collection.

    Promising review: "I love my Dobby bookend! I was surprised that it was just one bookend, I guess I just thought they came in pairs. I have it on a shelf with all my Harry Potter books. It was very well packaged and arrive in a timely manner." —J Stockton

    Get it from Amazon for $45.
