    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was kind of shocked at how high quality these straws are! They come in a neat little baggie that you can store them in, and they come with a straw cleaner as well! I don't usually leave reviews on products (even if I really like them), but they donate 100% of the proceeds of your order to OCEANA if you leave a review, and that's a HUGE plus for me." ⁠—Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Being from Germany, I would say I am an expert on dachshunds. As a dachshund expert this is a must-have to be taken seriously. They look just like my dachshunds did. Buy it, you won't regret it." —Bear93

    Promising review: "These are very cute watering bulbs. I have a bunch of the colored orb ones and wanted something different so I ordered these. They are just as adorable and work as well as any other ones I’ve used. Like any other watering bulb, the soil gets drawn up into the water reservoir, this doesn’t bother me, but since these are clear glass it’s more evident than in the colored glass bulbs. I just rinse out when refilling." —Erin B.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.90.

    4. A set of two super cute (and soft!) makeup brushes featuring cat prints for you to fawn over.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first, and was afraid that my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! But, the opposite happened: It made my keyboard as good as new. I got all those dog hairs between the keys! And, there was no lingering smell on my keyboard or hands. It's kind of fun to play with, too." —Billy

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This works great. It chops the garlic just right and fast. It showed up early too, so I had to run out for garlic to test it out. It's much easier to clean than my previous solution." —Chase Scene

    Get it from Amazon for $17.20.

    Promising review: "If you are looking for a clean, easy-to-find in your bag earbud case that keeps earbuds neatly packed away from all the potentially nasty, unclean junk in your backpack/purse/pockets, and keeps the cords in place, then this case reigns supreme! I personally like how the cases come in bright colors to make it easier to find." —Cherlindrea

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in seven colors).

    14. An expandable file folder that's actually adorable? Just picturing how neat all my papers would look tucked away in these makes me want to de-clutter my desk.

    a set of the pastel file folders
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I've always been the type of person to have a different folder for each subject in school, and to buy new folders every semester because they accumulate wear and tear by the end of the term. But it became too annoying to have to switch out notebooks and folders every day depending on what classes I had. It also increased the likelihood that I'd forget a folder for a particular class, so I gave this a try. After four months of continuous use, it's held up really well! It holds everything that I need and it is always by my side. It actually still looks somewhat new. I got compliments on it because it's cute and a great organizational tool." —KaleSensei

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 10 colors).

    15. A cactus reed diffuser who is here to make your bedroom feel more green and smell wonderful! Just slip the reed fragrance into your cute container and in 2-3 days, it will fully absorb (and diffuse) the scent.

    three different types of the cactus oil diffuser
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is literally heaven in a diffuser. I have it on my desk at work and once the scent fully absorbed into the clay cactus, it put off the most amazing smell. Not too strong and pungent but very light and sweet and floral. And above all else, it’s cute as hell! Love it and will probably be getting more soon!" —Siearra

    Get it from Amazon for $32 (available in five styles).

    16. A destination cutting board for anyone who loves their hometown to use in their kitchen, or hang up for some charming decor.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Got this as part of a road trip picnic basket present for parents heading off across NE. The product was exactly as shown in the photo, which is important as my dad's home town and their destination are on the map. Placement of towns is accurate. Quality is excellent...usable cutting/serving board that is not too heavy for travel, and clear and deep wood burning of images." ⁠—Shoes

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in 60 varities).

    17. A "did you feed the dog" reminder to make feeding the fur babies as simple as it should be. You can stick this handy friend on your wall or it will stay on your fridge as a magnet!

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    This power bank is compatible with all smartphones.

    Promising review: "This portable charger works great. I get two full charges for my iPhone. This is the second portable charger I’ve ever owned so I don’t really have much to compare it with but all in all, it is exactly what I needed. I used it on a vacation trip and it held up very well, It kept my phone charged at all times and it still works great after a month of use. I like the led lights which show the current charge level and the pattern is absolutely adorable." ⁠—Ivana

    Get it from Amazon for $25.56 (available in two styles).

    Promising review: "I love having clean floors but sometimes I'm lazy and I live near the beach, so sand can be a hassle on the hardwood floors in my apartment. I love these so much and have worn them every day since I got them. They are super comfy and help clean!" ⁠—Laura J

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two sizes and 11 styles).

    20. A six-pack of sprout bookmarks that'll hold onto your reading place sweetly and serenly.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I first saw these bookmarks in a museum store and thought they were adorable! I decided to buy them on Amazon because they were a much better price (don't worry, I'd already spent plenty of money on other items to support the arts in the museum store!). I collect unique bookmarks from all over to add character to the shelves of my library, so I had to have these!I love how these are soft (like real leaves) and can either be folded within the pages, or be placed in by the stem so it looks like a sprout sticking out of the book." —Sarah Pesha

    Get them from Amazon for $10.93.

    21. A cute waterproof Bluetooth speaker to help you sing in the shower and blast your favorite playlist without fear of wrecking the speaker!

    Promising review: "Everyone loves this speaker. Check the measurements, because it is not small. Everything about it is superior: the color choices, the ease of use, and the construction. I bought it after reading a New York Times review in the Tech section of the paper under good choices for college students. It is definitely worth the higher price." —N. Klauder

    Get it from Amazon for $63.90+ (available in seven colors).

    22. A genie lamp stopper that is made for anyone who wishes their cooking oil would stop overpouring.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These animal-shaped bag clips are very cute ⁠— they put a smile on my face when I'm putting away leftovers ⁠— and they seem sturdy. My child is able to fasten bags closed after serving food with these, while the twist ties I usually use were too difficult, so they're convenient and helping us prevent food waste. Like other plastic clips I've had in the past, I don't expect them to last forever, but after we've been using them a few weeks (and have dropped them a few times), I can say they are well-made with quality materials." ⁠—confettikitty

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $3.99.
