    1. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, so you can get all of the decadence of feeling like someone is washing your hair without physically going to a salon. Psst β€” a lot of reviewers mention this has also helped with psoriasis, dandruff, and scalp tenderness!

    Promising review: "I cannot explain how good this feels when you're using it! It relaxes you and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It actually goes down to the roots and makes sure that it gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt smoother than after I started using this product. I would definitely recommend this!" β€”Romie Patel

    2. A popular streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask.,

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 fog gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." β€”Bebe

    It takes about two hours to charge, with each charge offering 10 hours of continuous play time.

    Promising review: "Life-changing. I always have a lot of trouble going to sleep the moment I lay down in bed. I would always browse on my phone till my eyes get tired and fall asleep. This eye mask blocks out the light and the music blocks all the noise around me. It is incredibly soft and very comfortable to wear. I could wear it all night long during sleep without hurting my ears like a regular earphone does to me." β€”Si Lia

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    4. A lightweight, faux-leather tote so versatile, it'll last through every season. Plus, side pockets!! Finally a place to store all the emergency ketchup packets.


    Promising review: "I honestly was very scared to order such a plain purse. But let me tell you it may look thin and non-sturdy, but it has been the best every day purse. I literally shove everything in my purse, so much space and soo sturdy. Honestly who needs all these brand name purses when there are these affordable amazing purses that last and match everything. It has gone through trips, school, work etc. It honestly is the best purse I have ever had. I have an LV purse who I thought was going to replace this purse, and let me tell you I returned to this one for its accessibility. BEST PURSE HANDS DOWN FOR AN EVERYDAY PURSE!!! and you can dress it up to make it yours!" β€”Leslie A

    One of the very first masks I started using in quarantine was from this shop, and I love it to pieces! I ended up getting them for my whole fam. They are sturdily made, super comfy, and have an excellent fit. It was also so nice to be able to pick the fabric, too!!

    8. A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling, so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers.,

    I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it's LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don't live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

    Promising review: "This product was a real surprise for me, I was never able to keep my bubblies as fresh and bubbly after the first opening. Three days later, and my expensive BRUT tastes just as nice. Frankly, this is probably going to become my go-to gift from now on... pair a nice bottle to it and voila! Thumbs up!" β€”RonBY

    9. A selfie ring light equipped with a tripod and cell phone holder to optimize your lighting sitch. Whether you're posting a cheeky selfie for the 'gram or stuck on Zoom for 800 years, this gadget's got your back (but, ya know, also your face).

    Promising review: "I do background work in film and television (I'm an extra and I drive cars on sets), and I have to submit a selfie to the casting company almost every day to make sure the casting director knows exactly what he or she will be getting. It can be a real pain some days due to lighting, getting a good angle (sometimes we have to hold a piece of paper with the date on it while taking the selfie--harder than it sounds), or just not feeling like taking a photo that day. With this set-up, I am able to just sit in the chair, click the remote (YASS! It comes with an awesome Bluetooth remote that lets you snap a photo with the click of a button!) and get half a dozen snaps in a few seconds. No struggle with the chicken-neck look that comes from holding the phone in an outstretched arm while also trying to hold a piece of paper with the date on it. Plus, the lighting is REALLY good. This product helped my selfies go from "meh" to "hey, that's a nice photo!" on the very first try. Easy to use β€” sets up in about five minutes. Once I got it set up, I just store it in the corner of a closet, and pull it out when needed. It is super light! Love it. If you want or need to take a good selfie or youtube video, this is the product you need! I love it! Recommending it to all my friends in the industry!" β€”Marti Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99.

    10. A five-year One Line A Day journal perfect for anyone who keeps starting journals and then abandoning them β€” one line a day is *super* low commitment, so it'll likely stick (and imagine the satisfaction of looking back every year!).

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    The book comes with 365 pages, each of which has lines for five days, so they'll write on the same page each year when the date comes around again. It's a really cool way to reflect on their ~journey~ β€” kind of like those "this time last year!" things your phone or Facebook does, except they're the ones in control of what gets written and saved.

    Promising review: "This is a FANTASTIC journal centered on a FANTASTIC concept! I'm a hardcore journaler, keeping a detailed daily diary for many years now. And this journal fits right in. If I don't get to my primary journal for a day or two, this book reminds me of what I did on what day, etc. It's just a great little log. It's also great fun! I just finished my first volume of this book, and it was SO FUN to see what happened on each day from the previous years. Of course, it takes a few years for that aspect of fun to come into play, but if you're diligent and thorough, that payoff will eventually come to fruition. The journal has held up beautifully to the wear and tear of handling it for five years, overall. The gold lettering on the cover is long gone, but its imprint remains. So, cosmetically, it's dirty and worn and fading. But structurally, it's sound. And I looooove the worn look anyway; it means it's seen some days. I've started volume two now, and am so excited to keep going with these books, hopefully all my life. At this point, I have three more blank ones in storage; I hope they make these for many more years to come so I can keep going with them, and keep gifting them." β€”Sarah L Carnes

    Get it from Amazon for $15.06.

    11. A Tushy bidet attachment designed with ease in mind β€” installation is a cinch, and you'll get to live that fancy fresh "staying in a luxurious European hotel" feeling for a fraction of the effort these usually take.


    It's designed to install in less than nine minutes, and also doesn't require any electricity.

    Promising review: "I am loving my Tushy! It is powerful and so easy to install! Not gonna lie, I wish my sink was on the same wall so I could do the warm water option but it is super effective and definitely wakes you up! I believe this is the best way to keep things happily clean and, coupled with my Squatty Potty, I think 2019 is going to be the year of the happy BM!" β€”Natalie D.

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (originally $129; available in two styles).

    12. An adorable peekaboo mug you can keep on your desk during the work day. Not only will it make for an adorable conversation piece during Zoom calls, but every time you guzzle coffee you'll have a surprise critter on your side rooting you through the 3 p.m. slump.

    Promising review: "Everything about this mug (from the handcrafted nature of it to the color) is perfect. My favorite mug that is constantly in use!" β€”Shurrie

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $12.

    13. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds, sparing you the infamous Post-Wine Headache and allergic reactions. It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors β€” a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed.

    Reviewer image of glass of red wine with a bottle of Drop It, along with a caption explaining that it's been working

    Plus, this is a heck of a lot easier to use if you want to drink out at a restaurant without pulling out a "wine wand" and calling attention to yourself. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "For many years, I have been that friend that always says 'no thanks, I can't drink wine.' Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too β€”Β so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don't have a migraine the next day. I'm so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It's easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more." β€”Mackenzie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    14. A dual hair dryer and brush to dry your hair as you style it and give your 'do an incredible amount of volume and shine, without the cost of a pricey blowout.,

    Unlike other hairdryers, this one can be held closer to the roots and scalp for a higher volume and lift, and helps you curl hair at the end while it dries. It comes with three heat settings and is designed to work on all hair textures β€” reviewers with 2A through 4C hair mentioned it working for them, and especially noted that it helps cut down on drying time!

    Promising review: "OK. I never write Amazon reviews which isn't cool since I rely on them so much ... but I just had to write one for this!!! So my BFF has been trying to talk me into this dryer for a while. I have REALLY thick, wavy, frizzy hair. I either get blowouts or spend about 20 minutes blow-drying my hair and THEN flat ironing it. So I finally caved and tried this dryer for the first time last week. I started out with pretty wet hair and product in it. About 90% of the way into the dry, I thought it was OK...but then everything came together. My hair was straight, smooth, and styled in about 10 min tops. I couldn't believe it. I immediately called my friend who told me to try it with my hair almost air dried. WHAT? So I did it the next time and again...WOW! This time I dried my hair in about three minutes...not as straight and smooth as the first time but pretty darn close. This dryer is a GAME-CHANGER. I can't believe the amount of money I'm going to save on blow outs!!! My BFF said it's also great for bedhead and quick touchups too. Can't wait. TRY won't be disappointed!!!" β€”Ann

    Model in pastel pink quarter zip sweater

    Get it from Levi's for $27.95 (originally $69.50; available in women's sizes 1X-4X).

    16. A Bluetooth shower speaker with a hook that attaches right to your curtains or a suction cup to stick it on your tiles, so you can wake yourself up to the majesty of Lizzo every morning the way nature surely intended.

    A round shower speaker attached to a shower curtain rod

    Promising review: "I bought this so I could listen to podcasts in the shower and in the bathroom from my phone, and I'm so glad I did. The Bluetooth is easy to connect the first time and every time I turn it on my phone will quickly and automatically connect. The sound quality is miles above that of my phone, mostly because it isn't echoing from on the counter. The sound buttons and volume up/down buttons are easy to use and I like that the speaker has both a suction cup and a clasp hanger so that it can be put practically anywhere. The battery also lasts forever, I've had to charge it only two or three times since I purchased it, and it gets 30 minutes of use easily every day." β€”Shawna Yanke

    Get it from Amazon for $22.98 (available in five colors).

    17. A sturdy, durable, and chic-as-heck all-weather lace-up boot made with water-resistant leather designed to withstand both the test of weather and time. Pfft, and the rain thought it could cramp your style.


    Promising review: "I have so much I love about these boots and the Nisolo brand. I love that these boots were made with sustainably sourced leather and wood. They took no time to break in. They fit perfect (I usually were a size 8 but I sized up 1/2 a size). They look great with a dress, jeans and even when I go on a hike. Very versatile. I live in them." β€”Renee K.

    Get it from Nisolo for $250 (available in women's sizes 5-11 and five colors).

    18. A set of magnetic bookmarks that will let you save your place while keeping your pages pristine, if you're in the Don't You Dare Dog Ear My Beloved Book camp. Plus, the array of colors mean you can match at least one of them to any given book's cover (extremely necessary to optimize the reading experience).


    Promising review: "These are super cute! The colors are sophisticated and they are pocket size. I am using some myself and then giving them as little gifts to some of my writer friends." β€”Kristen

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $8.99.

    19. A cozy weighted blanket that might help you sleep better at night if you deal with anxiety, restless leg syndrome, or general insomnia. To really tailor the experience, it comes in a bunch of custom sizes, weights, and colors depending on your perfect fit and feel.

    Model snuggled in a white weighted blanket

    Promising review: "After reading other reviews on weighted blankets, I decided to go with Luna. (I have bought two now, one as a gift.) I love that the material is organic cotton, and the beads are not made of plastic. The material is cotton so it is light but strong. I have used this blanket for three or so months now. Having battled insomnia, restless legs, joint pain, and muscle pain, I had read that a weighted blanket could help. Honestly, I hardly have sleepless nights now. The blanket isn't too heavy but just heavy enough. Before I had this blanket there were many nights I was awake until 3 a.m. due to insomnia and pain. Now, usually within a half hour of winding down, I am asleep! It calms my restless legs , and really lessens muscle and joint pain! Blanket is sturdy, holding up well. Totally worth the money." β€”sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in seven sizes and various colors).

    20. A pour-over coffee maker that takes the complication out of making the perfect cup, and will make the whole process of brewing it feel a lot more hands-on and personal. (Also important: pour-overs make for top-notch Instagram boomies.)

    A transparent glass pour over coffee maker with cork accents

    Promising review: "In my effort to slow my life down, I am choosing to make coffee in smaller, more 'hand crafted' quantities. It's paying off for me in a better tasting cup of coffee ... and making me slow down and take more time with life. You can actually taste the difference in this coffee maker and pot at a time coffee. I am no longer making a pot, grabbing and gulping. I am now lingering in the making and drinking which adds to the enjoyment. Bought my daughter one too, so that she will start slowing down and smelling the coffee." β€”Deborah Daniel

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    21. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, so you can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to β€” well, just about anything. If you can dream it, you can Hot Honey it. (Pro-tip, though: drizzle it on grilled cheese.)

    A model drizzling hot honey over pizza

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. Makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." β€”Martha Ronemus

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    22. A jar of whipped shower icing so you can still feel decadent as heck even without a bathtub. Each of these comes with unique layers of soapy ~frosting~, with so many combinations it'll be easy to find one you know you'll love.


    Indulgence Spa is a Maryland-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in soaps, hair care, and body products.

    Psst β€” I recently started using this myself in the Three Wishes Tea flavor (a combo of tea leaves, peaches, rosebuds, and marigolds) and the smell alone is swoon-worthy, but I love love love how it feels in the shower. It has a satisfying creamy whipped texture, but suds up when you use it so you get that nice satisfying squeaky clean feeling, too. It's lasting a long time, too (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors πŸ˜‚).

    Promising review: "Very delicious and very rich! I bought a set in the Black Opium fragrance, which smells just divine! I will definitely buy again." β€”invisible9

    Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $15 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

    23. A compact light therapy lamp to mimic the morning sun and give a lil' boost of energy and happiness to anyone on that work from home beat β€” this UV-free bb has three different brightness settings to bring the perfect amount of light to your life.

    A model working on a computer next to the small rectangular light propped on a table

    It also comes with a timer, so they can set it to stay on anywhere between 10 and 60 minutes before it shuts off automatically. They recommend users start with ten minutes (and avoid staring directly at it) to see how it impacts mood and energy before trying it for longer periods of time. Many reviewers swear by this for helping improve their mood, energy levels, and sleep by getting more "sunlight" in darker months when they might not actively be getting as much.

    Promising review: "THE best therapy light I had every tried!!!! I was told to buy one months ago to help with my seasonal depression and at first I thought it was ridiculous. I definitely am eating my words because it has worked wonders and I absolutely love it!" β€”Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (get this price by clipping the "$5 off" coupon on the product page).

    24. A rechargeable hand warmer complete with double-sided heat and three different heat settings you can adjust to your environment, whether it's "walking in a winter wonderland" or "everyone in this house is deeply divided on what a regular human temperature is, MOM."


    Psst β€” this is USB rechargeable, and you can even use a power bank or your phone to charge it!

    Promising review: "This hand warmer is amazing! My hands are constantly cold and I've tried all sorts of products to help keep them warm but nothing has worked until now. I charge the hand warmer every night with a standard USB charger and the next day, I have hours of warmth. The three temperature settings are very helpful β€” I use the highest setting when I'm outdoors for long periods of time and the lower settings when I'm indoors (e.g. sitting at my desk or in a cold movie theater). I've already given hand warmers as gifts to several cold-handed friends and family members and they're loving it as well. I hope Ocoopa comes out with a foot warmer next!" β€”Riva Kupritz

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in six colors).

    25. A bedside smartphone vase that can't make the sound of your morning alarm any less irritating, but sure can make it look pretty. Plus now you can be the literal embodiment of waking up ~fresh as a daisy~.

    26. A "Good Vibes Only" candle you can order with a custom scent, so you can use it to ~manifest~ whatever it is you're hoping to achieve this year.

    Get it from Dorothy B & Co. on Etsy for $25.

    27. Plus a rechargeable electric lighter that is wayyy more cost-effective than constantly replacing gas ones, and is long enough to light up even your most well-loved candles without worrying about the flame being able to reach the wicks.

    Promising review: "If you're looking for an easy way to light candles, look no further. I've had this thing for a couple months now and I've only had to charge it once! I got tired of using matches and regular lighters to light the candles around my apartment and was initially going to buy one of those elongated neck lighters with the trigger. Thank goodness I decided to go with this electric lighter instead. Easy to use, no gas or fuel required, and the battery lasts a long time. Also, it's super convenient to not have to tilt each candle in order to light it! Highly recommend if you're looking for the easiest way to light candles!" β€”Matt S.

    29. A 40-pack of velvet scrunchies in so many colors that Rainbow Brite herself would feel faint beholding them. With these in your arsenal, you can rock a high pony that flawlessly matches your outfit every day of the week.,

    These are also super gentle on your hair β€” I use them to sleep in at night, so I can wake up without worrying about my Day Two hair getting too tangled or having that dreaded hair tie crease.

    Promising review: "These scrunchies are literally the greatest purchase I have ever made in my life. They are so soft and definitely do not feel cheap at all and I am just amazed to get such high quality at such a low price. As someone with long, thick curly hair, scrunchies are very necessary to keep my hair up and I've always struggled trying to find ones that are both stylish and functional while still at a reasonable price. These scrunchies are freakin beautiful and they hold my hair up perfectly. While I admit I probably went a bit overboard and definitely do not need 40 scrunchies, they bring me joy and now I have a lifetime supply. Would def recommend." β€”Katherine

    30. A bathtub caddy that will turn your boring bathroom into a veritable spa. Pinot? Poured. Candle? Lit. Netflix? Queued. Now all you have to do is calmly explain to your loved ones that you live in a tub now.

    Not only is it size-adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candle holder, and extra space for whatever else your cozy heart desires.

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" β€”SindiMcG

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in five colors).

    31. A lightweight vacuum that's a heavy hitter when it comes to cleaning β€” this sucker is designed to work on everything from carpets to shag rugs to hardwood floors. Plus, it comes equipped with three nozzles so you can use it for vacuuming all those hard-to-reach spots, too.


    Promising review: "I can’t imagine rating this vacuum at less than 5 stars, especially considering the $60 price point. Not sure why it is so affordable, but I’m glad it is. At first glance it does not look particularly fancy or high tech, but this thing absolutely works. The suction is impressive, the unit is lightweight and stores the attachments compactly, and the settings are easy to use. I honestly can’t believe how much it picked up from my carpets. It was also effective for the pet hair on my couches. Noise output is average, cord length seems reasonable - perhaps the hose could be longer for cleaning surfaces overhead, but not a huge concern for me. Overall I could not be more pleased with a product that actually does its job." β€” goodbatch

    32. A minimalist geometric wine holder that you can either add to your bar cart's ~aesthetic~, or you can put anywhere in your space that could use a little understated flair.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a Christmas gift for my best friend and she loved it! I love the honeycomb shape and that it can hold a good amount of bottles. It’s a beautiful, Art Deco-esque piece that will suit any kitchen space or space to serve/show off your wine collection." β€”Arin

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    33. A sleek Aeroknit track top made with fabric designed to absorb water *and* wick sweat while you're on the move, so you won't do that thing where you run outdoors in the winter and then start sweating and then have your sweat get SUPER duper annoyingly cold.

    34. A gorgeously designed Hatch Restore sound machine – it works overtime as a touch-controlled smart light, bedtime reading light, sunrise alarm clock, and even a wind down light that helps you get into a healthier sleep routine at night. Other bedside lamps could truly never.

    Hatch Restore lets you personalize a "bedtime routine" for each night to train your brain to recognize sleep cues and get a better night's rest. Options include changing the light settings to more amber tones to help produce melatonin for sleep, soothing noise options, and sleep meditations and sleep stories you can get in the Hatch app.

    Promising review: "This was the best thing I have ever found to help with my insomnia. I used to take hours to fall asleep and wake up multiple times a night. Now I rarely wake up in the night and fall asleep either during the guided meditation or just as the white noise begins. I love waking up gently and not to a blaring phone alarm, and I’ve been able to stop doomscrolling at night since I can keep my phone out of reach. Highly recommend!" β€”darcybear

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95.

    35. A set of pop culture-themed pencils to rep for your favorite fandoms, whether they're based in books, TV shows, music, or movies. If you're obsessed with it, odds are there's a pencil version of it ✏️.

You can also work with them to create your own customized sets!

    As you can see from the above GIF, I bought these for myself, and I love them to pieces. TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat. Sometimes I just keep them in my work area to light them up during the day to feel fancy. They toggle back and forth between a bunch of different colors, like red, blue, yellow, purple, and multicolor, so you can either make them match *or* have a red and blue one together and bring ~balance~ to the Force.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" β€”T.

    37. A set of adjustable desk shelves to organize your professional knickknacks and trick your coworkers on Zoom in thinking you have your life together.

    A set of small, light wood shelves of different sizes on a desk holding books, plants, a clock, and supplies

    Promising review: "Excellent product! I have been searching for an organizer to put on the top of my dresser, and I could never find anything unique, functional and not too big. I came across this organizer and took a chance since I wasn't seeing it in person. I am so glad I did! The product arrived overnight (instead of two days) and was super easy to put together... just follow the pictures exactly as shown. They even included a screwdriver, so you don't need anything extra to put it together. It is super cute, fun and fits perfectly. I definitely recommend." β€”lmeglin

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (also available in Black and Light Cream Purple).

    38. A fuzzy candy-themed robe from none other than iconic candy store Dylan's Candy Bar, because why just taste the rainbow when you can *be* it too?

    Get it from Dylan's Candy Bar for $50 (available in women's sizes XS-XL).

    39. A structured planner that does way more than keep track of your daily life β€” it also keeps track of your larger goals and aspirations, and gives you ways to more meaningfully track them without putting too much pressure on yourself.


    It comes with 52 weeks and 59 pages for notes, and all the pages are undated, so you can kick it off any time you'd like.

    Promising review: "Love this planner. I love the free-form. You can skip weeks you know you're out of town or whatever and save those pages for another time. I think my favorite part of this planner is the first two pages. Everything to do with this planner is how YOU make it. For me, it also helped (kind of made) me reflect on things I really do want and goals I really do want to achieve. Words of affirmation was difficult for me to fill out so I looked them up online and wrote the ones that spoke to me most. How I want to/should be seeing myself." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in four colors).

    40. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a drill to take the effort out of cleaning and make a legit impact on all those surfaces you've been pretending not to notice the grime on for approximately too many weeks now.

    Promising review: "These brushes are freaking fantastic. I tried them on a portion of my shower and bathroom floor tiles and grout. I immediately had to do the rest because it made the cleaner sections look dirty. I also tried it on the side of my fridge that is next to my stove top. It did a pretty good job there as well at removing grease and stains. The only downside is that it made me enjoy cleaning!" β€”Eric T. Ma

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    41. A set of satin pillowcases – not only will it feel lovely on your skin, but it'll also create less friction for your hair, which may spare you those first ten minutes you spend every morning trying to find your face out from under the tangles.


    Promising review: "Couldn't afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors." β€”BinaryCode

    Get a set of two for $9.99 on Amazon (available in seven colors and three sizes).

    42. A chic desk mat to tie your office space together and protect your desk from scuffs and blots. As an added bonus, all the colors are reversible, so you can change your desk vibe with the season.,

    Promising review: "It's a really beautiful desk pad. I love that the colors are reversible. Right now loving the purple for winter, but will switch to the pink side in the summer. Makes my work desk look more colorful and pretty! It feels like a good quality mat. The stitches surrounding the border are sewn on evenly and not cheap-looking. The feel is soft but durable. When I unrolled the mat, it flattened out easily and nicely without any creases or having to put heavy weights on the corners to flatten it out (unlike another similar desk pad brand that I bought for my home desk). As for function, I like that it also acts as a mouse pad for my mouse. Writing on paper with it underneath is not a problem, writing still feels smooth. Overall I love this beautiful mat." β€”Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $12.91 (available in five other colors).
