Amazon has a list of its "Most Gifted" products, so you can creep on the gift ideas of other users everywhere (or, you know, use them as inspiration for your own gifting needs).

Here are some of the coolest products from that list this week:

1. A bourbon lip balm that only looks expensive for all the bourbon-lovers in your life.

Price: $7.79
Amazon

Price: $7.79

2. A set of five super soft makeup brushes in a gorgeous case you just may also have to buy for yourself!

Amazon, amazon.com

Set includes: foundation brush, powder/blush brush, angled liner brush, eyeshadow brush, lip brush, and designer case

Promising review: "The brushes feel very soft to the touch and apply makeup wonderfully. I mostly use the foundation and powder brush. I find Jojoba oil cleans foundation off the brush best. Overall I really love these brushes and especially love the color and design. The bristles look very nice and have held together well." —Julia

Price: $19.95

3. A 12-piece, PFOA-free non-stick cookware set featuring shatter-resistant glass lids any chef would be grateful for.

This set is oven safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and suitable for all stovetops, except induction.Set includes: two covered saucepans, one 6-quart covered stockpot, two skillets, one 3-quart covered sauté pan, a slotted turner, and spoon. Promising review: "I waited a while to write this review because I'd had other enamel cookware before (a different brand) that I initially loved, but as I used it, it quickly became very scorched looking on the bottom. Since I display my cookware on hooks in my kitchen, this was very unsightly. Well, I've been cooking with my beautiful Rachael Ray Agave Blue enamel cookware for nearly four months and it's still as lovely as the day I took it out of the box. It's as functional as it is beautiful. I highly recommend the cookware and will buy more in the future." —Bitsy C :-)Price: $84.52+

8. A super-absorbent, frizz-defeating hair towel for anyone who wants faster air-drying results or luscious, effortless waves (this is going on my wishlist rn)!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I get so many compliments on my wavy hair since using this towel. Random people tell me that my hair looks good! It made the waves more defined and my hair much shinier. Definitely a good purchase." —Sara Bingel

Price: $14.99

9. A precious, life-like dog designed to engage and comfort people with memory loss, such as Alzheimer's and dementia. This pup can respond to your voice by turning its head and barking, responds to touch, and even has a heartbeat you can feel when you hold it!

Promising review: "For anyone with a parent with dementia or Alzheimer's, I can't say enough about this amazing product. When I bought it, I feared that my mom would feel like I was belittling her or that it was silly. She has been miserable and is 60% incoherent but 40% aware of her surroundings. She is anti-social with the other residents in the memory care where she is but when I bought her 'Oscar' she suddenly became social and the caregivers told me that her personality was changing, that she wanted to show off her pup, that she appeared proud and pleased. When Oscar barks, pants, etc., she gets such a kick out of it. But the other residents have come to love Oscar, too, and always pet him, talk to him, even want to carry him around. He is a blessing — I almost forget myself sometimes that he is a toy." —Alexandra AllredPrice: $119.99

11. A headband with built-in headphones reviewers swear-by for snoozing through noisy neighbors, snoring, and all types of noise no one wants to hear.

Promising review: "I asked for these for Christmas last year and everybody made fun of me. Now they've all gone and bought a pair. These things are the best ever — and definitely better than earplugs and an eye mask! I put on binaural beats and pull the headband down over my eyes and sleep like the dead all night. Can't hear the annoying neighbors partying, spouse snoring, the rattling heater, nothing. Almost missed a meeting the first time I used it because I was so completely zonked! Great for travel, too. Hotel room is on the third floor right over a busy street? SleepPhones to the rescue!" —K. LongPrice: $39.95 (sizes XS–XL, eight colors)

13. A pair of warm fleece-lined leggings that'll become a winter wardrobe staple everyone will thank you for.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: "I love these! They are so warm it feels like having a blanket strapped to your legs. I'm a thin person so my body doesn't hold a lot of heat so these are perfect. The material is very comfortable too. I am about 5'5", 120 lbs., 35" hips. I got an extra small and they fit perfectly. I've worn them every day since I got them and I'm seriously contemplating buying two more pairs!" —Kyrsten Fordham

Price: $22.99+ (sizes XS–XL, two colors)

14. A cruelty-free, waterproof mascara so you can give your favorite beauty guru the mascara they need for everyday looks!

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is my favorite mascara! It isn't quite as volumizing as other brands, however it doesn't clump or leave behind blobs of mascara on my lashes like many other brands — for me, it's totally worth it. I can't stand clumps or blobs. I think this mascara is great for everyday use, and looks lovely and professional. When I want the extra volume (when I'm not wearing it to work), I apply one coat and let it dry for a few minutes, then apply another. Doing this adds more volume, but still avoid clumping. You can wear it day or night." —Jack B.

17. A pair of slip-on shoes the kids and tots in your life will actually want to wear! They can also be worn in the water.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "These are amazing and super cute. My 3- and 4-year-old kids can slip them on and off by themselves, and they don't fall off even when worn in the water. My kids love them and say they are really comfy. They pick them out every day to wear no matter where we are going. These definitely run half a size small, so size up 1/2 a size!" —Wendy Cimino

Price: $11.61+ (34 colors, sizes 7M toddler–6M big kid).

18. A story book filled with illustrated folk tales from all around the world; so you can give the gift of a good book and hours of entertainment.

Promising review: "This is a beautifully illustrated and diverse collection of stories from many different cultures and countries. Take note that some of these stories may not be suitable for very small or sensitive children — several of the stories are more along the lines of traditional Grimm's fairy tales (i.e. very dark!). We enjoy following along with the stories throughout the calendar year. Our family has liked this book so much that we now plan to give it to friends as birthday gifts." —LWSPrice: $17.99

It makes an amazing latte. I have been waiting for Keurig to come out with one. We have an espresso machine, but we never use it because it was such a pain to make anything with it. Making a latte is so easy and clean up is a breeze with this new machine. Makes great regular coffee just like you expect with a Keurig machine." —Sarah BradshawPrice: $179.99

20. A tea tree oil foot soak you should probably give to that one family member who is always complaining about foot fungus or athlete's feet — relief is on its way!

Promising review: "I have had issues with my feet, one in particular, for a long time — painful cracks in my heel; redness, and some itchiness. I realized it was probably stubborn athlete's feet, and bought this foot soak. I can't believe how fast it helped! I used it every day for about a week and couldn't believe the difference. My foot was less red, cracks were healed, and no more itchiness. I also bought the Tea Tree Oil wash and I put it on a small nail brush and scrub my feet in the shower. I'm trying to make my husband use it since his feet are pretty bad due to work boots and construction work in the heat." —SusywithnSPrice: $13.16

Features: Bluetooth and NFC connectivity compatible with smartphones, tablets, and other BT devices; smartphone charging dock so you can charge your phone while speaker plays music, 360° soundPromising review: "I bought this for the levitation effect, which is continually mind-blowing. I've had it for a couple of months at the office. Quite the conversation piece. It's one of those 'we're not in Kansas anymore' experiences, over and over again. One thing that I really like is that if you spin the globe in one direction or another, it will keep spinning at about 15 revolutions per minute forever. At least over a three day weekend. Using it with my iPhone as a speaker is just a plus. The sound is great. I've had it about two months, operating continuously since I bought it." —Brad JensenPrice: $140.22
