    30 Things For People Who Love New Things

    Things like color-depositing conditioner, a book of micro-short stories, a champagne subscription, and other things will help satisfy that rush for something new.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Tiny Nightmares, a collection of short horror stories (I'm talking 1,500 words or shorter!) in case you have a hard time sticking with a book of longer short stories or a novel. Each story is fantastic but only a few pages long!

    2. A Rocketbook Wave Smart Notebook, which is really just fancy talk for a notebook you can take notes or scribble in, move those notes online, and then microwave the notebook to start with an *actual* blank slate. If you feel the siren call of a crisp new notebook, you need this.

    3. A tea sampler with 10 different teas in it so when you're in the mood for a cuppa you can go on a tiny, tasty adventure. Plus, in my experience, you can go for seconds with one of these pyramid tea bags.

    4. The Sip Society to reward yourself with new champagne (at least to you!) on the reg. Plus, the subscription comes with info on the history, tasting, and storage of the bubbly beverage.

    5. A Maison Margela Replica perfume sampler so you can get your feet wet in some new scents before swapping scents. (Or trying more!)

    6. A coffee subscription that'll match your taste buds up with curated picks for you to give a spin (ahem, sip).

    7. A Sips By tea subscription with customized picks so you can zero in on your fave new tasting notes. Now *that's* something to cheers to (even if it's not with booze).

    8. Colorful faux lashes to amp up any lewk.

    16. Vellabox – it delivers a steady rotation of new candles to your place. Even if you have a signature scent, it's nice to mix it up every once in a while!

    17. A Chingaderas Que Hacer notepad in case you think a new to-do list format could bring about some *new* habits...like actually drinking enough water you beautiful desert!

    18. A set of clip-on bangs because you somehow have put off getting them in 2020 (the restraint!) but might just debut 'em in 2021...even if they're faux.

    19. A drawstring synthetic Afro ponytail for a low-effort switch that'll transform your look.

    20. A set of clip-on hair extensions to help you try on some mermaid tresses for a night (or 10).

    21. A standout floral or mini heart temporary tattoo that'll give you some ink a brief spin.

    22. A bucket list journal for couples so you can figure out which trip of a lifetime you're going to go on first. Something tells me that a road trip out west is going to be on the top of that list.

    23. A snack box subscription filled with snacks from around the world because you're a total sucker for a new kind of candy or weird flavor of potato chips.

    30. A Rent The Runway membership if your limited social calendar and WFH schedule (sigh) still makes you yearn to dress up a bit in new duds. I CAN RELATE! With this subscription you can borrow 4, 8, or 16 items a month for far less than their designer price tags for some Zoom fashion moments. (How else will your friends ooh and awe over your looks?)
