    2. Essence Lash Princess Mascara might just leave people wondering if you recently got eyelash extensions (which it feels like everyone and anyone has been raving about). Joke's on them!

    Promising review: "I waited over two months to write my review! My daughter is 4 and plays with these DAILY! YES they do attract dirt and hair HOWEVER they are so easy to rinse off, it's not a big deal! We took these to a family gathering and ended up giving two away because they were SO loved! The two we gave away went to a 12-year-old and my 19-year-old brother. They discovered throwing them at the ceiling fan and watching them shoot across the room which was pretty entertaining! None of these have busted or ripped and they are definitely NOT gentle with them! I will definitely be buying more!" —Kindle Customer

    4. The Body Shop Cleansing Butter, capable of removing waterproof makeup (wow???) while also enriching your skin with the soothing effects of camomile tea. Soothing in so many ways.

    5. A bag of powdered cheddar, because if you're like me the moment anything bad happens (big or small) in my day I just want to curl up with a classic "boxed" mac 'n' cheese and de-stress. Perhaps not the healthiest coping mechanism, but it's mine.

    6. A Baby Yoda night-light that, for lack of a better term, will become your *guiding light* as you make your way through your hallway in the middle of the night when you'll inevitably have to pee.

    7. sandwich cutter and sealer that'll make it easier than ever to make Smuckers Uncrustables copycats at home — embrace your love of kid-friendly meals once and for all!

    Promising review: "These have been a GAME CHANGER in this house!! My son has always begged me for Uncrustables but my wallet didn’t agree with them. I LOVE being able to make them at home and customize them to exactly what they would like them filled with! I make two weeks' worth of sandwiches at a time and store them in sandwich bags in the freezer so in the morning during the school year we can just grab and go! Love them!" —Katherine Smaczniak

    8. An activity book that has been specifically designed for the writer to destroy once they've finished it — you can dig deep into your past, present, and future without any pressure to commit to daily journaling.

    9. Essie's "Set in Stones" glitter polish, a must-have for anyone who wants to *~make the whole room shimmer~* a la Taylor Swift (or at the very least, your nails).

    10. A blackhead scrub stick that'll exfoliate your clogged pores and remove excess sebum while also being a bit reminiscent of the adorable lil' character from Finding Nemo that said "you made me iiiink!"

    Promising review: "Here’s the thing. A scrub is never going to solve your blackhead issues long term. But there is truly no other product like this. It’s an amazing quick fix to get your pores unclogged and less noticeable, and once you’ve done that, slap on some retinol/salicylic acid with a moisturizer. Adorable packaging, unique product, and effective!" —Molly

    11. An eight-pack of fluffy bow headbands to keep your tresses out of your way while you flawlessly recreate Kim Kardashian's most-recent makeup look. They'll also work wonders when washing said look away.

    Promising review: "These are not something I normally would have thought of to buy for myself, but after buying them as little 'thank you' gifts for others, I FELL IN LOVE WITH THEM!!! They are super soft, come in adorable prints and instantly make you feel girly and fabulous. I even had to order more because my daughters started stealing them from me! I use them for keeping my hair out of my face when doing my morning and nightly beauty routines. I also use them instead of a shower cap to keep the hair around my forehead and neck from getting wet. They are easy to wash and hold up well, just throw in a garment bag. I think these are way better and more comfortable than the traditional headbands and hairclips I was using before. I am one happy lady and I absolutely recommend this product!" —In Style With Celeste

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two pattern sets).

    12. A curtain of twinkle lights to make you feel like you're sleeping inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?

    13. A colorful beaded bracelet featuring your initial, sure to become your new fave accessory because it's *all about you* (duh).

    14. A set of custom stickers you'll be able to make of whoever you want — your pet, your own face, Harry Styles, the list goes on and on.

    15. Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary Blend coffee to make you feel like you actually just picked up a cup on Main Street. Sigh, I miss it so much.

    16. High-waisted leggings you can throw on to lounge around your apartment or pair with an oversized sweater for brunch — truly the most versatile (and necessary) item of clothing you'll ever own.

    17. A cleaning pen, so all of your jewels (whether they're real or not) will be so sparkly everyone will wonder where you got 'em from.

    18. A Two Minute Mornings journal complete with gratitude prompts you can use to start your day off on a positive note (even BEFORE coffee, can you imagine!?).

    19. Gold under-eye collagen masks you can break out for an at-home spa night or whenever you "accidentally" stay up all night bingeing something new on Netflix and you need some de-puffing.

    20. A wintry mug, perfect for sipping tea or hot cocoa out of while watching snow fall out your window or marathoning The Santa Clause movies for the umpteenth time.

    21. A smiley-faced Scrub Daddy sponge that'll make doing the dishes a bit more enjoyable — how could you resist smiling back at this lil' guy???

    22. Matte hair clips made to work with *all* hair types — yes, even if you've broken your hairbrush while trying to comb through your bedhead, you can rock one of these beauties!

    23. A chic faux-leather belt to act as the finishing touch on every outfit that just seems to be missing *something*.

    24. An Xbox Game Pass Membership that'll provide you with more than 100 games a month. I wish you luck in choosing what to play first, jeez.
