    1. A waterproof phone case β€” it just may be the highlight of your tropical winter getaway.

    Compatible with Apple, Samsung, and Sony MOTO devices.

    Promising review: "This product is incredible. I purchased to use while in Key West for an iPhone6, iPhone6 plus, and Galaxy S6 edge and it fits perfectly for each phone; being a little more snug with the iPhone6 plus. It is completely waterproof, and takes great photos and video through the case – but you have to press record prior to submerging the case underwater. My family went snorkeling, and kept the case with the phone inside submerged almost the entire time, and had no issues with leakage. My family and I got stopped numerous times being asked where we purchased this product. Perfect even if just on the beach and you do not want to get sand or sunscreen on your phone, and want to still take photos/text/browse the internet. I will be purchasing this for everyone in my family, as it has become a travel must have!" –Jennifer Roman

    Price: $6.99 + Colors: eight

    2. A collection of books from Hogwart's library that'll give true fans tears of joy.

    Written by J.K. Rowling herself πŸ‘‘.

    Set includes: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard, with extensive commentary by Albus Dumbledore

    Promising review: "I love anything written by J.K. Rowling. These books are a nice addition to my collection. It's awesome to own the books mentioned in the movies. They are interesting, and give further detail in the fantastic world of the magic that is Harry Potter. There are even notes written in the books by the students that owned them. Any true fan would love to have these." –Nick and Jeneen Clark

    Price: $21.44

    3. A holiday laser light so you can project holiday cheer on the house, inside the house, on the neighbor's house, on the dog, cheer for all.

    Set includes: laser light unit with screw and bracket, outdoor laser light spike, indoor laser light stand, user manual, 30-day full refund, and 12-month warranty. Each light projects stars and Christmas tree patterns

    Promising review: "I didn't expect to like this so much. I also didn't expect the product to have the build quality that it does. It's well packaged. The instructions are clear. The device itself is sturdy and solid. It does not feel cheap like other holiday laser devices, and the added mounts are great. I especially like the built-in timer and light sensor. It turns on when it's dark, and turns off a few hours after midnight. It's also handled two downpours with a problem." –Rene Alvarez

    Price: one for $19.99 or two-pack for $38.99

    4. An Elf on the Shelf toy who'll get into more and more mischief as Christmas approaches.

    Promising review: "Our elf arrived and the kids were happy. He was always getting into some kind of trouble, lol. We enjoyed him greatly and can't wait for him to come back next year. He is made with a felt kind of material, and his hands are sewn together when he arrives. I however cut his hands apart. His head turns all the way around, so he can look any direction you want. The book is a great little story to go along with the elf, so the children learn all about what he does. I highly recommend this product for some fun with your kids." –Jamie L

    Price: $29.95

    5. An electric wine opener that just may make you the most jazzed wine-drinking human on planet earth.

    Stay with me forever, wine opener.

    Promising review: "I ordered this for my smokin' hot GF back in 2012. Fast forward three years later – this $20 wine opener is still with me, and my smokin' hot GF is now my smokin' hot wife. I never thought either one would be with me for this long, but life is good. We like to have a good time – I mean, we effin' get down on some wine. So this bad boy probably pops open a new bottle every two days. It has stayed plugged in to our wall for over three years now (I halfway expected the battery would have burned out by now, but nope!). We haven't even had to replace the screw yet – still works like new – and I'm shocked and impressed this $20 opener has faithfully lasted this long. Often times you get what you pay for (I know because I'm cheap), but this is an exception to that rule. I have no idea why anyone would pay $50+ for another 'more recognizable' brand, this is packed with all the quality you could ever need. I probably sound like a PR rep from Oster, but I had to write a review of this little guy when I saw him sitting unrighteously unreviewed in my past orders." –DaveyG

    Price: $14.38

    6. A pair of Levi's 505s with a fit worthy of everyday wear.

    Promising review: "Good jeans, good fit, good leg length. No faults in the measurements. Fit like my other Levi's that I used to buy several years ago. Regarding the material, I have read so many criticisms about the material being lighter, less durable, shallow pockets...I really don't know where that came from. These jeans have the same material as my older ones (about 5–6 years ago), and the pockets are really deep, even deeper than my older ones (they were also 505s). The only point is that the pelvis area is somewhat wide. I notice some extra material in the front beside the zipper on both sides, but that is a problem I am used to with all my Levi's jeans (505, and even 501 with buttons). I just have to slim it from both sides a little bit, as I am used to with all my Levi's. The waist is very good. The color is great, and overall these jeans are perfect." –Dina K.

    Price: $24.24 + Sizes: 29–44 Colors: 45

    7. A tri-fold lighted mirror to transform you into the goddess of all things makeup.

    Promising review: "Great mirror! Nice and bright white lights that do not get hot. I can actually see my face with no shadows. I love that the mirror swivels up and down instead of side to side, so I can zone in on my eyes. It turns on with a switch, and has a lever to change between light settings. Plus, it has an extra outlet on the front. I also love the magnifying side of the mirror. Works great for me!" –Aunt Juju

    Price: $39.95

    8. A turtle pillow that'll help you leave the sad, painful, noodle neck life behind – use it in the office or on long flights, and never look back.

    Promising review: "Do you have a few hours? Because I need to tell you about this neck pillow thing my wife just got me. Imagine your neck is swimming in a bowl full of noodles, unable to grasp any support through the turbulence on your flight from LAX to, say, PIT. Then, imagine, just as your neck is about to drown in the limp pasta, a hand reaches down from the heavens and baby Jesus himself wraps your supple, tired neck, barely keeping its cricoid above the surface of the linguini soak, in a velvety, form-fitting embrace. Sure, other necks in the pot are just fine – floating casually next to you – but your neck, your poor poor neck, is writing goodbye letters to its loved ones – clavicles, humeri, and the like – as it can't imagine keeping up this pace for much longer. But then, the sweet Jesus baby appears and wraps it up in what might as well be the brazier of the mighty Athena, and all troubles are forgotten. My neck has said 'sayonara' to floundering with fettucini and 'hello' to raging with the rigatoni." –Traveled

    Price: $29.99 Colors: two

    9. A pair of cut-resistant gloves for anyone who has been cut one too many times with a grater, knife, and/or woodcarving tools (me).

    Watching a piece of your thumbnail slowly grow back after an incident with the grater is an experience I wish on no one.

    Promising review: "I waited several weeks before reviewing these, so I could see how well they hold up, compared to other carving gloves I've had (for edge tools, of course – never for power). It's been about six weeks, and by now, with most gloves, I'd have a hole (or several) in my index finger and thumb. I am a pretty serious wood carver, and I wear the glove on my left (holding) hand, so I give cut-resistant gloves a lot of abuse. These seemed too good to be true, at between 1/4 and 1/2 the price (per glove) of any other decent carving gloves I've tried. By this time, I wondered if I would see the usual holes and excessive fraying. I did not. The fact that these are ambidextrous makes them twice as valuable to me, too, since I only need the left. They are so light and thin, with a completely snug, yet not constricting fit – I can even type with them. I worried they may not be as cut-resistant as they claimed; but they have proved to be as good or better than all the others at stopping very sharp edge tools. The knit is very tight, so I don't see skin like I do through others, so it even helps to minimize those unpreventable fine punctures, like with the point of a slipped skew. They will last longer than any other carving gloves I've tried to date." –Ohio customer

    Price: $10.99 Sizes: three

    10. An oversized beanie so you can flaunt how cozy and warm you are in front of the haters.

    Promising review: "This hat was purchased for my 102-year-old aunt to match a new winter jacket. It fits greats, and she looks too cute in it! The day she received it, Aunt Dorothy decided to wear it to dinner, despite the complaints of the other patients at her assisted living. She couldn't hear them anyway. This hat is stylish, I'm sure will keep her warm, fits well, and is a beautiful navy." –maura

    TBH though it sounds like every one of those patients needs this hat.

    Price: $10.99 Colors: 57

    11. A hair straightener kit to tame those wild locks, without spending a fortune.

    Set includes: protective glove, pouch, and travel size Argan hail oil treatment

    Promising review: "I am in love. This flat Iron worked so well for me. I have been natural for close to three years, and I kind of missed having more manageable hair, so I took a chance with this flat iron. Best thing I ever did! Most good flat irons are very expensive, so I did some research, found this, and crossed my fingers. Because of the thickness of my hair, I had to do small sections at a time. MOST IMPORTANTLY: YOU MUST PUT A HEAT PROTECTANT IN YOUR HAIR (I used HSI Thermal Protector with Argan Oil). With me being natural, my hair lasted a good 3-4 weeks." –Miss_benjamin

    Price: $33.95 + Styles: seven

    12. A french press so you can get psyched up over smooth, rich coffee every morning.

    Promising review: "As a person who just made instant coffee for years with microwaved water, then moved up to a drip coffee maker, I have now finally graduated to this little beauty. So what makes having a coffee press so special you may ask. I'll fill you in. The taste: smooth, rich, and ever so flavorful. This coffee press makes a wonderful cup of coffee. Watch in wonder as the translucent, freshly made coffee pours slowly into that seasoned cup of yours that deserves better. The experience: There's something to be said about making something that feels so delightfully raw, yet ever so practical. Don't be derailed by cynics claiming that making coffee in a press is a hipster thing, they can keep their venti $5 caramel macchiato. There's no better feeling than making yourself a rich cup of coffee, and showing it off to your friends and family." –Edgar Tovar

    Price: $12.13 + Sizes: three Colors: two

    13. A pair of convenient, fold-up headphones ready to become everyone's go-to pair.

    Promising review: "I purchased these as headphones to use while on Skype for work, as well as for talking on the phone. I figured I might use them for music occasionally. Well. I pretty much haven't taken them off. They are incredibly comfy and look amazing. I love how they fold up, and the packaging they came in was very nice as well. When using them on Skype and phone calls, people have been amazed at the sound quality. I can also hear very clearly on calls.

    As far as music goes, obviously these are not going to give you deep bass or amazing sound quality like a pair of $300+ headphones would But for the price, WOW. I'm very impressed. They cancel noise quite a bit, but when turned up loud, a person next to you can hear them. Overall, I'm extremely happy with these headphones and would recommend for anyone to buy these, especially for the price. The microphone works perfectly, and it's just a perk that I'm using them to listen to tunes now too!" –Alysia Rodriguez

    Price: $19.98 Colors: four

    14. A pair of delicate (but sturdy), sterling silver earrings you just may wear every day.

    Promising review: "Cute little filigree teardrop earrings. Smooth and shiny all around. They are very lightweight. I don't even notice that I'm wearing them. Still, they are fairly sturdy, as long as you don't step on them. They are thin and delicate, but they are not paper thin. The swirls are intricate and nicely done. They don't have sloppy edges like cheaply stamped jewelry. The fishhooks are comfortable, and hold the earrings in place well. Dangling from the fishhooks, the earrings have a little bit of movement. I love filigree openwork. It adds a touch of elegance, but it's not too fancy for everyday wear." –C Larson

    Price $7.56

    15. An essential oil diffuser for filling the air with calming scents and necessary humidity this winter.

    Is anyone else's heat doing the most and walking into your home is like walking into a dry AF desert, or is it just me?

    Features include: seven color changing lamps, nightlight, programmable on/off cycles, and auto shut-off once the water runs out

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome. I was never in to essential oils, but when I got this, now I have to try all of them. I love having it next to my bed and breathing it in at night, especially the eucalyptus and pine oils. It is also very calming to look at. One fill up lasts me about four hours on the red continuous setting, which is really all I use." –Mitch

    Price: $17.95

    16. A set of six essential oils to fully embrace the scents – use them in a diffuser, add to a bath, or even mix oils into DIY beauty products.

    Set includes: peppermint, sweet orange, lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, and lemongrass oils

    Promising review: "These oils are amazing. It's my first time using essential oils in a diffuser and I love it. They smell really great. The lavender and peppermint go great together for sleeping at night, and the lemongrass made my house smell clean and fresh. I also love that there's no plastic dropper, but instead has the lid with the built-in dropper (not sure what they're called), but real essential oils have them so it just assures me even more that these are pure. The packaging was very nice and secure, and the little box was so cute! They're good sized bottles and will probably last me a while. Definitely going to be ordering more from this company. Just be careful because it's not safe to diffuse Tea Tree oil around dogs!" –Julianne Sunseri

    Price: $12.95 + Sizes: two

    17. A de-tangling wet brush that's so gentle, you just may use it yourself after you brush your kid's hair.

    Promising review: "Amazing before and after on both my daughters! I've only used a spray bottle to dampen hair, and the brush practically glides through the hair with little to no effort! My girls don't fight me to brush each day – before this brush, it was a battle to comb or pick because of the pulling. I definitely recommend and will purchase again. I also use on my hair when it becomes super tangled at night." –Charity Williams

    Price: $6.83 + Colors: 10 Sizes: four

    18. A paper and credit card shredder for anyone who needs to take the next step in identity/privacy protection.

    Promising review: "After over a year, the shredder is still working great. I use this in my kitchen to shred junk mail or anything with my address. It will zip through a typical 3–4 page credit card solicitation in seconds. A few staples are no problem either. If you put more than six pages, the motor bogs down but will slowly chew through it – I've done that a few times where it just stopped. There is a reverse switch to unclog it if you get overzealous in your shredding. It is usually faster to just put three pages in at a time. It has a credit card slot, and has no problem chopping them up. There is a safety switch on the back that only allows the shredder to work while in the supplied can." –J. T. Turner

    Price: $29.99

    19. An argan oil hair mask worthy of protecting/moisturizing your hair once that sample pack runs out.

    Promising review: "This is by far the best hair mask i've ever used. I have curly hair that needs A LOT of moisture and definitely needs a deep conditioning/mask every other week. After I wash my hair, it is very dry and brittle with a lot of frizz. When I first used this product, the fragrance was very subtle and wasn't overwhelming. It had a very nice texture to it, and wasn't too thick to put in, which is great. I left it in for about an hour, and after I washed it out, my hair was very soft, less frizzy, and my curls were more defined! It felt more moisturized as well. It exceeded my expectations. I brought this hair mask two months ago, and my hair grew faster than usual, and no longer feels dry and damaged." –Erykat

    Price: $12.95

    20. A facial cleansing brush so your routine becomes a breeze – your skin will thank you.

    Set includes: two-speed facial cleansing brush, cleansing brush head, exfoliating renewal cleanser (0.68 fl. oz.), and two AA Duracell batteries

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I was just looking for a good clean, but have felt nearly jubilant over how youthful my 34-year-old skin feels! It feels more elastic and clear than it has in a long time. Maybe I'm just kidding myself, but I feel like my pores are smaller, too. I've only been using it for about a week, but I am SOLD." –Allan Tribe

    Price: $29.97

    21. An air filter for obliterating all the gross stuff floating around the house.

    Promising review: "All I can say is WOW, this thing works! We have had it for six weeks, and just changed the wrap filter. All that stuff was going into our lungs from our master bedroom. We noticed the room was easier to breathe in on the first day. We liked the white noise it makes to sleep with. When we still didn't know just how well it would work, but we felt better. We decided to order more until the entire house was as nice as our bedroom. Now we know. I also ordered more of the blanket filters." –BunnyD

    Price: $105.51

    22. A food processor that'll make being in the kitchen a joy, instead of pure food prep terror.

    Goodbye, onion-y tears.

    Promising review: "I love this food processor! I use it several times a week for various things. It has three settings, but for the most part I use the pulse option because it is so efficient. I've been making my own salsa all summer, and it's delicious!" –jeepin sara

    Price: $29.85

    23. A set of nine reusable mesh bags so less plastic grocery bags can harm the earth, and your produce can stay fresh(er)!

    Promising review: "These bags are great! I've had them for about two months now, and I can't say enough wonderful things. I use them for all my produce and bulk purchases at the grocery store and farmer's markets. The three sizes are perfect for different sized items. I never have to use and throw away those single-use plastic bags the store provides anymore, plus I can put my produce right into the fridge in the bags. The most impressive moment for me was when I put blackberries in them. When I got home, of course they were stained black. I didn't wash them until the next day, and they came out of the laundry as good as new!" –Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.97 + Sizes: S–L, mixed set available

    24. A pack of hand warmers because it's cold AF out there, and staying toasty is key.

    Promising review: "I brought these and used them for my trip to Alaska during Thanksgiving. The weather in Alaska during the time I stayed was below zero most of the time. This product is easy to use, and keeps warm for at least six hours after you activate the pack and put it inside of clothes. Tips for using them:

    1. Activate the warmers inside of house/car or a place that is warm (we tried to activate the warmers outside below zero, it took more than 15 minutes).

    2. Activate the warmers 5–10 mins before you want to use them.

    3. After you activate the warmers, put them in the clothes or gloves so they can stay warm for a longer period. We dropped it in the snow, and it became frozen as a rock immediately." –jiaxing g.

    Price: $6.90 + Sizes: 5–480 pack

    25. A set of hair extensions people swear by – to give you the length and volume of your dreams.

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much money I spent on natural hair extensions until I got these. OMG I'm so amazed by how natural they look. They are super voluminous and soft. I bought two since my hair is really short, and I like to use a huge amount of hair, but even with one you can rock lots of hairstyles. Thank you so much for this product!" –JE

    Price: $8.99 Colors: three Sizes: 16"–20"
