It all comes down to the scent. It just has such a classic, gentlemanly fragrance. Whenever I slather this stuff on, I think this is what a New England fisherman must smell like on his days home from sea. Amazing stuff. There is no sort of tingling or burning or cooling or any of the other stuff we often expect from after shave creams, balms, gels, etc. It's just soothing and calming and nice.

I haven't been let down once. So far my favorite item has been a vintage down vest that I wear multiple times a week.

    33. A bidet to give the gift of a quick but powerful bathroom upgrade. Not to mention the savings on TP.

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.

    34. A heat-wicking 10-inch hybrid mattress with adaptive foam layered over springs (not too soft and not too firm), so you can give the gift of sleeping like a baby. Reviewers swear by this mattress for staying cool.


    Promising review: "This is my fifth memory foam mattress. Some of my previous mattresses include everything from name brand (Tempurpedic) to a knockoff memory foam King size. Once you've slept on memory foam, you'll quickly understand why they are popular. I personally love them. The only true downside is they tend to sleep pretty warm. The Nod Hybrid employs cooling gel, but I was pretty skeptical because of how less expensive it was. I was pleasantly surprised that it legitimately felt cooler than all the other memory foam mattresses I have ever slept on. It doesn't sleep as cool as the really expensive beds mind you, but it also cost a lot LESS, so keep that in mind. The hybrid of springs and memory foam works pretty well. Yes, it is soft as a memory foam mattress usually is, but it also provides a comfortable firmness underneath that will probably be a life-saver for those with bad backs. All in all I am very satisfied with this, and after having extensive experience with cheap memory foam to expensive ones, I can say that you CAN get your money's worth without spending a fortune. I'm very happy with my bed and won't hesitate to recommend it to anyone." β€”Jeff Edwards

    Get a Queen sized mattress from Amazon for $607 (also available in sizes Twin-California King).

    a hand lifting up the mattress topper

    This mattress topper is certified to free of harmful chemicals, substances or materials

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS! I wasn't sure about ordering it β€” I thought the thicker the better β€” so I was mainly looking at 3 to 4-inch toppers like I had in the past, but the reviews were so good that I decided to give it a try. It unrolled perfectly without the terrible smell of toppers and foam mattresses that I've had in the past. I put it on my bed immediately and was completely won over. It's soft without being too soft. It doesn't take away from the firmness of my mattress β€” it just provides a perfect amount of cushioning and coziness. I sleep so much better now without the shoulder and hip pain that came with sleeping on my side on just my regular mattress. It's so comfortable that I never want to get out of bed." β€”DH in TX

    Get it from Amazon for $108+ (available in six sizes).

After having used the knife to trim fat on a prime rib and then on a brisket, all I can say is WOW! The knife is comfortable in my hand, trims and cuts beautifully, and is an essential item in my kitchen." β€”BYUcougarfan
