    1. A book of Vine-inspired poetry that just may become the best poetry book of the year.

    Nothing like a good parody to soothe the soul.

    Promising review: "Wow. Wow. Wow. I feel like a dead part of my body has been brought back to like. This is the absolute best piece of literature I have ever spent time reading. Aside from the fact that these poems come straight from the late Vine app’s most iconic moments, the font and A+ illustrations make this read absolutely life changing for people of all ages who were on Vine when it still existed. I think 'Cam and Collin, come in here and get y’all juice' (Kennedytayl0r), should have been included, but the absence of that particular Vine does not take away from the amazing and apparent blood, sweat and tears that were put into this books conception. Thank you to the authors, the original Viners, and of course, Vine itself." β€”Zuhri Wayman

    2. A stretchable sweater to keep you warm and compliment your figure.

    Promising review: "Get a couple sizes up. I'm size 10–12 and got this one in 12–16 and it fits perfectly! This is a khaki color, looks gold/beige and I love it. My hair blends right in, cute! I'm surprised by how soft and well-made this sweater is. In LOVE! β™‘." β€”Lady Blonde

    Price: $19.99+ Sizes: 0–22 Colors: 11

    3. A DNA testing kit so you can uncover the roots of your ancestry, and maybe even meet some long lost relatives.

    Includes at-home saliva collection kit.

    Promising review: "Took six weeks to get my report. I liked that it supported what family told me, so I knew it was scientifically accurate. I knew I'd get mostly Southern European, but seeing the Eastern European, Middle Eastern/African and Ashkenazi admixtures was fascinating. The results gave me a new appreciation for those who came before me. I chose this test over Ancestry DNA for two reasons:

    1) This test gives you insight into your Neanderthal heritage. If your background is European, Middle Eastern, or even Asian to some extent, you most likely have significant Neanderthal DNA, since these primitive people mated with the modern humans who migrated out of Africa. Neanderthal DNA is responsible for many traits such an freckles, allergies and even fertility trouble, so it's useful to know how much of it you have.

    2) Ancestry DNA users tell me you have to pay a monthly fee to access your DNA relatives. With 23 & Me you can see, without extra cost, other test user's profiles who share DNA with you. I've been in touch with a few and learned some facts about my history that I didn't know before. I may eventually get Ancestry DNA's test too to compare, but for now, I'm happy with this brand." β€”Cautious Shopper

    Price: $69

    4. A pack of hair extensions you'll love – they are thick, luscious, shiny, heat-resistant, and under $10.

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am very picky about hair extensions. I've spent hundreds of dollars on numerous sets, and have never been completely satisfied, until now! These are BY FAR my favorite, for such an amazing price. If you're worried that this deal is too good to be true (because I was), then stop worrying and buy these extensions. Also I have very short hair, and they still look great! Very full and luscious. And you can straighten them. I'm very happy :)" β€”Makenzie Long

    Price: $8.99 Sizes: 16", 18", 20" Colors: 17

    5. A two-pack of versatile makeup sponges ready to become you next go-to for applying foundation.

    Promising review: "It works as well as the usual sponges, and some features are better β€” it doesn't suck up any foundation, and it's very easy to clean with water. This is a great beauty product. I like this size and the shape, because it has a large flat side, which I use for applying CC cream/foundation β€” I find the application is easier because this is easier to hold. There's still a pointed end for concealer application in the eye area. Once you start using this silicone makeup sponge to apply liquid foundation and concealer, it's tough to do without. Love this product, and will definitely be buying again." β€”Andrea Crikelair

    Price: $10.99

    6. A tub of aloe vera gel for revolutionizing your beauty routine – use it for healing scars, oily skin, moisturizer, hair, and more.

    Promising review: "I use this as a base before putting on moisturizer, after my toner and serum. My face is sensitive with oily/dry skin with few acne spots, and my cheeks are blemished and red from past acne scars. (Yeah, a real work.) After using this gel, I've noticed that my face isn't as oily as it usually would be during the day. If anything, the oil has cut down by half, and my face is still reasonably soft. The redness has gone down as well, and I've gotten fewer pimples. I use this on my chest and back acne, and those disappeared as well. I also have oily eyelids, and using this product around my eyes has shot the oiliness for that as well. The best thing about aloe is that it has many uses. Not only for the face, but I use this for the ends of my hair, and it really gives it some good moisture, especially for dry hair in the morning. I've also mixed it in with my body lotion, and it really helps with dry and itchy skin. Very useful for freshly shaved skin. I recommend storing this in the refrigerator for best results." β€”Lily

    Price: $7.39 Size: 10.56 ounces

    7. A three-pack of soft charcoal toothbrushes that just may make you feel like you've paid the dentist a visit.

    Promising review: "I love these. They are thin so they fit easily between your teeth for better cleaning. Also with the charcoal bristles your teeth feel super clean, and look really white." β€”jeda

    Price: $4.01+ Sizes: three-pack to 15-pack

    8. A pair of distressed leggings perfect for your next workout or jam session.

    Promising review: "I really like that they can be high-rise, as well as regular waist. Although the intention was to wear these to workout, I think these are better suited for a concert." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $6.89+ Sizes: XS–XXL Colors/Styles: 14

    9. A pair of dangly earrings to keep you looking elegant without a big price tag.

    Promising review: "The perfect size for me. Not overly huge, yet not too small. The upper part/stud is very sparkly. Came in a timely fashion. Want more in a different color." β€”M. Houghtaling

    Price: $2.09 Colors: four

    10. An adorable Sailor Moon-inspired purse with features you'll love – like a magnetic lock, four compartments, and an adjustable strap.

    Promising review: "I love this purse! It came faster than expected, and is made beautifully. The outside has a clean finish, and the moon has a nice luster to it. The purse has a magnetic lock, and the first pocket has four compartments, and the second pocket is nice and thin for things like debit cards or lists/papers. Also, on the bottom, there are brass studs to hold the purse up. The adjustable straps are so helpful, I can change the size according to my height. I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who loves cats. This is one of the best purses I have ever bought!" β€”Melissa

    Price: $14.99 Colors: three

    11. A delicate pendant necklace you might never want to ~leaf~ off.

    Promising review: "I bought four! They are more beautiful in person than the picture that's for sure. We love them, definitely worth the money. I love the fact that the leaves adjust so you can wear them together or one up and one down." β€”samantha

    Price: $2.72

    12. A 15-pack of Ghirardelli hot cocoa for anyone who needs serious help satisfying their chocolate addiction.

    This stuff is delish.

    Promising review: "My family has a new favorite hot chocolate. I will definitely buy again. Very rich, and great flavor." β€”Jon

    Price: $10.77

    13. A pack of stencils that'll take your journaling and list-making to the next level.

    Promising review: "These are fun stencils! I use them to be creative for making and adding to birthday cards so far. I also use them for journaling. I would recommend!" β€”tiffany potter

    Price: $5.55+ Styles: two

    14. A pair of eyelash extensions so you can show up at the party and flaunt some magnetic magic.

    Promising review: "I wore these for a work party, and everyone thought I had gotten lash extensions. I told them I had these awesome magnetic lashes that were a little difficult to apply on the first few tries. I added one small coat of mascara after I applied them, and it made them blend with my natural lashes." β€”Ashelee Holland

    Price: $12.99 (one pair, four pieces)

    15. A cozy sweatshirt top I kinda want to crawl into and fall asleep in.

    Promising review: "Comfortable, flattering, and easy to clean. I love it! I purchased two colors and get compliments all the time. They are long and loose, but not at all ballooned. I wear them all the time, and so far they are holding up great!" β€”Marcia

    Price: $13.99+ Sizes: S–XXL Colors: eight

    16. A set of four hair pins that'll keep your hair out of your way, and make you stand out from the rest.

    Promising review: "I have heavy wavy hair, and have had no issues with these pins! Love it." β€”Sabrina Hinojosa

    Price: $5.49 Colors: two

    17. A mug made for anyone who believes profanity is the one true way to express how much you care for someone.

    Promising review: "It was everything I hoped for." β€”Peter A Postlewait

    Price: $13.69

    18. An electric toothbrush β€” it just may make you throw all of your *other* toothbrushes out the window.

    Promising review: "This toothbrush, is literally from heaven. I originally bought it because the dentist recommended it for me, but I won't stop using this even if the dentist said I didn't need it anymore. After you brush your teeth, you feel as clean as if you had just gone to the dentist. It makes your mouth feel pristine. I definitely recommend this." β€”fjbsnr1

    Price: $39.95 Colors: six

    19. A beard balm worthy of conditioning the luscious locks growing from your face.

    Promising review: "First, the scent. What about the scent? There is much to-do about the scent in the reviews and you may be afraid that the scent is 'strong' or that you'll smell like licorice all the time. Don't be concerned. I have no idea what these people are on about. There is a hint of anise (black licorice) but I think the scent is a mix of spice notes and woodsy scents, with maybe a tiny bit of anise. In any event, I think it smells quite good. Does it work? Yes. My beard is softer and it looks nicer, too. I'd recommend the product to anyone who uses a stronger soap for face cleaning, as a strong soap turns your beard hair into steel wool. This, along with some good conditioner, helps put things back into shape. Does it help with the dreaded beard itch? Yes, and boy was I glad that it did. Does it help with the dreaded beardruff? Yes, my skin is regularly flaky with beards and this took care of that, too. Does a little go a long way? Yes, so don't be put off by what seems to be a small tin. You're supposed to apply this to a damp beard, and the dampness helps the small amount of the product go even further." β€”MF48

    Price: $12.87

    20. A coconut styler cream designed to help your wild curls live their best life.

    Promising review: "What is this magic?! I've just used this for the first time and I can't stop staring at my hair. It's never looked this good. Ever. I think I have 2c/3a hair and I've never seen my hair curl so hard before. It's seriously amazing. I've just started trying to embrace my natural hair instead of hiding it and this stuff gives me hope. For real. It doesn't make my hair crunchy and it gives them some bounce. My hair usually gets fluffy after a while but not with this stuff. Nope. It's still going strong. Also, the smell is freaking amazing! I'm not a huge fan of coconut smells but this isn't like in your face coconut. It's like a summery coconut smell? It's good. Trust me." β€”Madyson

    Price: $21.21

    21. A vacuum-insulated tumbler made for keeping all of your tea and hot cocoa warm forever.

    Promising review: "I first got one of these for free elsewhere and loved it so much, I had to buy one as a gift for my dad. I live in Florida and left one of these with ice water locked in my car, windows up, in 87 degree heat for four hours β€” and came back to find it was still ice cold. They really work (and that was a model without the sealing magnet top, so I imagine this one is even better). I've felt both the stainless-steel version and the matte colored ones, and I have to say that the color ones have a better grip and feel to them, so unless you really dig the all-metal look I'd pick a colored one." β€”Sundance

    Price: $29.99+ Size: 20 ounce Colors: six

    22. A set of sharp rainbow knives that'll be just as useful as they are pretty.

    Set includes 8" chef knife, 8" slicing knife, 8" serrated bread knife, 7" santoku knife, 6.5" utility knife, and 3.5" paring knife.

    Promising review: "Considering the low price, I wasn't sure what I would get with these knives, but I trust the Cuisinart name, and I figured it was worth a shot. I originally bought these so that I wouldn't have to keep taking my 'good' kitchen knives on camping trips, but to my surprise, I love them so much that I've kept them in the kitchen to complement the knives I already had. They are super sharp, and have a great ergonomic handle. The weight and balance is really nice. The set includes every type of knife you might need, and I love the fact that each one comes with its own protective blade guard. When I do take them camping, or to a potluck or anywhere else outside of my home, it's great to be able to both protect the blade from damage, but also to protect the inside of the bags I'm using for transport, and the fingers that will be reaching into them. I also have the option of storing them without the guard because they will stick to the magnetic knife holder I have on my backsplash. My favorite knife of the set is the bread knife, which slices through the crunchiest crust with ease, but also can handle a tender crumb without tearing it up. I also love the yellow utility knife for slicing thin skinned fruits and vegetables like tomatoes. It's also great to have a second chef's knife as when I'm cooking with someone else, that's the one everyone seems to need the most. I think these would make a great gift for a young person who is setting up their first home; good knives and cutting boards are so useful!" β€”S. Rudy

    Price: $17.69+ Colors: two

    23. A set of microfiber sheets for anyone who adores the feel of soft, silky sheets.

    Set includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases

    Promising review: "If one likes the feel of freshly washed, crisp sheets, these are not going to be your favorites; even washed and dried, they are never crisp, stiff, tight, or any of those kinds of words. If one likes the feeling of soft sheets, silky, smooth, flowing, then these may be your favorites. They seem colorfast; we bought the gray color and I cannot say they are any dingier or less vibrant than the day we bought them. These microfiber-style, polyester sheets absolutely show oil stains more than cotton sheets, and it does not wash out. This may be particularly true of the darker colored sheet sets and pillowcases. If one uses body oils, Vaseline, skin creams, hair gels, or eats potato chips in bed, you may not like how these sheets look after a few months. This bedding will have you believing that your spouse has ordered a bucket of KFC and ate it at a pajama party while you were at work; don't worry, your wife isn't having an affair with Col.'s just the sheets. These sheets have not shrunk, and still can be easily placed on the bed. Even the fitted Mellanni sheet with elastic corners, unlike my usual cotton shrinky-dink sheets, doesn't snap up into my kisser while I'm making the bed. Thanks, Mellanni!" β€”WayneChicago

    Price: $19.70+ Sizes: twin–king Colors: 36

    24. A foot and shoe deodorant spray ready to handle the stinkiest stink feet of all time – goodbye, odor from hell.

    Promising review: "My husband's work boots smell SO BAD to the point where he's even questioned if one of our cats peed in them. He's tried everything – foot powders, actual deodorant, even dryer sheets, and nothing would get rid of the odor. You could smell them from across the room. We've been using this spray on his boots for over a week now, and I am so happy with the results. The odor is gone! We spray them every night, let it sit overnight, and in the morning there's still no odor. It's a light mist, so it wouldn't be an issue spraying in the morning either before putting them on. It's not a wonderful smell like a perfume or something floral, but it's not a bad smell either, just neutral. It's very minty. It's a mix of essential oils including peppermint, tea tree, eucalyptus, and thyme." β€”Kristen Breen

    Price: $13.49

    25. A lil' ramen babe keychain so you can have a bowl of tasty ramen on hand at all times.

    One randomly selected bowl comes with each order.

    Promising review: "Cute! I got the first one pictured. It looks just like the picture, and is small and cute." β€”Christina

    Price: $2.29

    26. A knitted sweater dress worthy of throwing on and heading out the door when it's chilly AF outside.

    Promising review: "I am 135 lbs., 5'6" and a size L fits beautifully. I am generally a size M in tops, and size M/L (6/8) in bottoms due to a pear shaped body. Note that it is a knitted dress, and the knitting can stretch to fit a variety of body shapes and offers some flexibility in sizing. It fits me with only a slight stretch on the derriere." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $17.99+ Sizes: S–XL Colors: six

    27. A foot and back self-massage ball for rolling the pain away all day.

    Promising review: "Great foot massage ball. Roll this sucker standing up or sitting down. The little stars dig in deep, depending on how much pressure you apply. Feels awesome!" β€”Stephen DiBari

    Price: $5.95+ Sizes: 1-10-pack Colors: three

    28. A cocktail party dress that just may make your friends think you invented fashion.

    Promising review: "The fabric is very soft, thick, and of excellent quality. It feels like satin and has a subtle shine. The skirt portion of the dress is very wide, it falls nicely, which creates natural pleats. The dress is extremely comfortable, again the fabric is so soft. The zipper is in the back, it is totally invisible and your friends might ask you how you got this dress on. If you need to iron it, which I did prior to the party, iron it on low inside out. I recommend this dress, it is a great buy." β€”Summer16

    Price: $8.60+ Sizes: XS–3X Colors: 37

    29. A Frizz Ease serum so you can demolish the plague of hair frizz and become unstoppable.

    Promising review: "I really did like this. Plus it is affordable. This was my first time using any John Frieda products, and it really did help with frizz. It didn't make my hair feel oily, and using it as a straightening serum makes your hair look nice and healthy. Would definitely recommend, and purchase again!" β€”Alexandria

    Price: $7.97

    30. And a unique oversized sweater to live in this winter, because it's cozy AF.

    Hello yes, I am snowbirding inside this sweater until spring.

    Promising review: "I was amazed with the color of this sweater β€” up close it was a mix of different browns! I don't own anything quite like it, so it is definitely a good addition to my wardrobe. As for the size, I knew it was going to be really huge on me, so I planned to layer it on a dress. I find that for a deep neckline such as this one, it's always best to wear an inner that has a cute collar. Or perhaps layer on a scarf! The material is soft to touch. It felt comfy against my skin, and not scratchy as I initially thought it would be. This sweater is definitely made for layering." β€”Cy
