    1. Essence Lash Princess mascara that'll leave people wondering if you recently got eyelash extensions. Joke's on them!,

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long wearing. I go from an 8 hour work day right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E Miller

    2. An organizational workbook filled with check lists and activity sheets to help you work on your resolution to declutter your home.

    Promising review: "This workbook is great on so many levels. I very much appreciate how visually appealing it is. I am a visual learner and there is a lot of great eye candy among the pages to keep me engaged. There are also 'samples' of filled out charts intermixed which will very helpful. Cassandra's voice is refreshing to read and her strategies seem realistic to implement for me. Sprinkle in some inspirational (or humorous) quotes and I'm suddenly enjoying utilizing this home/life organizing workbook." —Jodie O

    Get it from Amazon for $14.84.

    3. Super soft undies designed to feel like a second skin so you can rock your favorite pair of leggings without discomfort or pesky underwear lines.

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these undies! They are so soft and comfy!! I can easily say that these are my favorite pair I have ever owned!! Even if you are not sure of your size, they stretch and tighten if they have to. Perfect fit for many!" —Maggie

    Get it from Aerie for $14.50 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and seven styles).

    4. A Two Minute Morning journal that'll encourage you to embrace the day, let go of stress, and set daily intentions. "New Year, New Me," right?


    Promising review: "This was purchased for me as a Christmas gift from a co-worker. I only recently started using it, as I've been dealing with some troubles in my life. I don't know what it is, but even if I repeat some of the same stuff... getting this done in the mornings (or sometimes at night if I don't make the time in the mornings) has made such a tremendous difference in my attitude toward myself and to others. So much so, that several people have taken notice. I have since purchased a couple copies for friends who are also dealing with troubles in their lives. I highly recommend it. Even if you aren't dealing with any issues in life, it's such a help for clearing your head before starting your day." —Sumo

    Get it from Amazon for $15.26.

    5. CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment you can use to revive your lovely locks from all the straightening and curling you've done with hot tools., Amazon

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really soft, and then I discovered hot tools and hair dye. While my hair looks good I really missed the soft texture. This works so well. There are no instructions on the box but I washed my hair with my usual shampoo, towel dried it, worked about two quarter sized dollops through my hair, let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinsed out. I went to bed with wet hair which usually results in my hair being kind of tangled and rough looking but I woke up and my hair was as soft and silky as it was before I started coloring it. I'm totally in love with this product, I have long fine hair but this doesn't leave it greasy or weigh it down. I'll definitely buy again." —Ellie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

    6. A monogrammed mug with a beautiful floral design from Rifle Paper Co. that'll look beautiful on your desk and prevent your coworkers from "accidentally" using your fave mug.


    Promising review: "These cups are exquisite. I bought three and will get more! 1. They look exactly like the photos. Colors are vivid and beautiful. 1. Gold lettering is thick and still subtle (you can see it if you want to and you can watch it disintegrate too. Super well done) 3. Ceramic is solid yet not clunky. Excellent quality 4. I love a good British cuppa, especially if its made out of fine bone china. These are not, yet hold the heat equally well and are almost as tender on the lip. Totally in love :)" —LiselFrench

    Get it from Anthropologie for $14 (available in 26 styles).

    7. Green Gobbler sink cleaner you can use to break down all the hair, grease, and whatever else is causing your sink to take fooooorever to drain. This might just save your relationship with your roomie, TBH.

    Promising review: "Fantastic stuff. My bathtub was so bad that when I showered I would be standing in almost a foot of water. I used other products all to no avail and was to the point of calling a plumber when I came across this product. Some of the reviews were negative so I didn't have much confidence that it would work when I ordered it. So glad that I did!! I used half the bottle and within a couple hours the clog was totally gone and no evil odor. I highly recommend." —Chrissy

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

    8. A plant-based recipe book filled with vegan meals for under $30, perfect for anyone trying to incorporate more veggies into the diet.,

    Promising review: "I thoroughly enjoy the style of Toni’s book. I like that there are tips from her and others that have tried her recipes. I also like that there is a space after each recipe to put your own tips. It allows for more creativity instead of feeling like I have to stick to the recipe. I made her Minestrone Soup (pg.127) and it came out super delicious. It was perfect especially since I was sick. Thanks Toni for such a great cookbook!!" —Dez

    Get it for the Kindle from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. BootRescue cleaner you can use to save your favorite pair of shoes when they inevitably get covered in dirt and salt from the winter.

    Promising review: "I have expensive suede booties that I mainly wear to go out so they're subjected to rain, alcohol, and average bar grime. There's nothing worse than wearing something and stressing about it getting ruined. I used this product for the first time after a year of wearing my booties and still, these wipes removed a year's worth of damage. They didn't ruin the suede and my booties feel soft again." —AmazonShopper

    Get 10 wipes from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. An oversized sweatshirt tunic you'll want in every color after one wear — it's the cozy, casual outfit you've been looking for.,

    Promising review: "Welcome to comfort city. If you're looking for a form-fitting, little black dress... this is not for you. If you're looking to wear what I believe clouds made into clothing would feel like... well then you have arrived my friend. It's a nice sweatshirt material made for Goldilocks, not too thin and not too thick. Perfect for the gal that takes her bra off as soon as she gets home. This is also nice to run errands or road trip in. Just add some leggings, cute boots, and a jazzy scarf and it will look like you kind of tried for the day whilst feeling like you're wearing PJs. AND IT HAS POCKETS. POCKETS!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.80+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 37 colors).

    12. A creative book that'll teach you how to draw the cutest doodles ever. Get ready to become the best lunch bag artist in town.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my 10-year-old daughter and she LOVES it!! There are so many picture examples and lessons on how to make the most adorable pictures. It's also very easy to use to learn how to draw all your own drawings in a super cute style. She makes the cutest things! It's a great book. Easy for beginners!" —Krijishy

    Get it from Amazon for $11.66.

    13. A deck of cards you can use to play Go Fish or break out when you need some extra encouragement.

    shopbando / Via

    Promising review: "I really love this Feel Your Best card deck. I haven't played a card game with them yet, but I have been drawing one each morning and reflecting on the statement or question on the back. Not only are they cute, but I love that they serve more than one purpose. I think these would make a great gift for a friend too!" —Kelly S.

    Get them from for $14.

    14. Bissel Stomp 'N' Go Pet Stain Lifting Pads for when your precious puppy gets a little *too* excited all over your carpet when you return home from work.

    Promising review: "After your pet has an accident, all you need to do is open up the packet, place the pad on the accident spot, and then step on the pad to release the magic formula. Leave it there for at least a half an hour or up to 24 hours. Why the discrepancy, you might be asking? Because these pads work on DRIED STAINS. Holla!!!! My puppy has been driving me bonkers with accidents in the house, but I don't sweat it anymore thanks to these pads. They are seriously miracle workers and I will always have a supply of them in my house going forward." —Lisa Koivu

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $24.99.

    15. A set of four huggie hoops that'll act as the finishing touch for your date night look.


    Get them from BaubleBar for $20.

    16. Light dimming LED covers you can use to minimize distracting lil' lights that may be disrupting your sleep without you even noticing.

    Promising review: "I had bought some cling film to cover my blazingly bright clock radio, and it solved that problem. But cling film won't stick to the myriad power buttons and lights on all of your electric products, such as the lights on your laptop and mouse, your night light, your power strip, your white noise or CPAP machine. All of those shine BRIGHTLY all night long with the specific intent of keeping you awake. And cling film won't help. You need something that will adhere to those buttons. The stickers in this ingenious product are perfect. The film is such that you can still see the lit buttons, but they are well muted and will no longer keep you awake. I have some lights that were so bright, I ended up putting two stickers over them and it worked beautifully. And even as low priced as this product is, they generously supply more than enough stickers for most people's use." —lvoigt2

    Get it from Amazon for $5.48.

    17. Polycarbonate scrapers that'll become your favorite pan's saving grace once you see how easily they'll remove dried and tough food from it.


    Promising review: "These little scrapers are invaluable and every kitchen should have one. They are perfect for non-stick cookware and any stuck-on food that won't soak off. I like the little depression in the center on this design, makes the scraper easy to grab and hold on to. Also, every corner has a slightly different shape, enough to get into the corners of any size/shape dish or pan." —R. Wilson

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $7.89.

    18. A duo eyeshadow set complete with Benefit Cosmetic's ShadowBlender, a must-have for anyone who isn't confident in their makeup skills but wants to give it a shot.

    Benefit Cosmetics

    Promising review: "I was really surprised at how easily and accurately the blender sponge placed eyeshadow on my eye — the curve of it follows your crease nicely and you can put the darker shader closer to the lash line (more smokey) or in the crease (more depth/eyes look bigger). The colors are really neutral too, perfect for everyday." —DanDan

    Get it from Benefit Cosmetics for $16 (available in three shades).

    19. Hydrating cuticle oil for anyone who has a bad habit of nervously chewing on the skin around their nails (me!). It'll nourish your cuticles and promote strong nails — who wouldn't like that?,

    Promising review: "I had a problem with my cuticles getting so dry they would split sometimes and no matter how many times I put lotion on my hands they would never get moist enough to lay flat like they’re supposed to. My nails were dry and brittle so I’d end up with one breaking and then have to cut them all back in order to have them the same length. This oil has ended all of that. Now I have to cut them back because they seem to be growing faster. I haven’t had a nail split since the day I started using this oil. It soaks into your cuticles and nails so well." —mlasorensen

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    20. A fierce sweater with a trendy twist on a classic leopard print design that'll show everyone just how trendy you are.


    Promising review: "How cute is this sweater! It’s on the thicker side so will definitely be great for the winter. Runs small so I recommend sizing up." —Living Fashionably Late

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    22. A screen cleaner to wipe off the gunk and grime that has built-up on your phone, tablet, and computer screens with a quick swipe.


    Promising review: "I've used Lysol wipes, and all of the other various 'tricks' for cleaning my phone/tablet for years and honestly this works so much better! The cleansing solution works like a charm and the cloth portion is really easy to remove and wash! Yeah it might seem silly, but it's helped me easily manage what was previously a constant annoyance for my OCD (No, I'm not using the term lightly. I have been diagnosed). My mom also likes that it cleans her makeup off of her phone screen since she can't seem to stop pressing it fully up against her face when she answers calls." —A. Webster

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    23. A Snout Soother stick that'll naturally let you and your doggo say "goodbye" to a chapped, crusty puppy nose and "hello" to nuzzling with your best buddy.


    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. This nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some magical stuff! Unbelievable results in 3-5 days." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    24. Playing cards you and the fellow Potterhead in your life can both agree are *magical* even if you're a Gryffindor and they're a Slytherin.


    Promising review: "It’s a fun deck! The face cards look great, and the overall antique look is magical. The tin these come in is beautiful. The size is weird (wider than the cards, but not wide enough for two stacks of cards side-by-side), but it doesn’t really bug me. Overall, it’s worth the price!" —Katelyn

    Get them from BoxLunch for $9.90.

    25. A rechargeable lighter, so you can light every candle in your house to create the *perfect* ambiance without concern you'll run out of lighter fluid.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again.

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    26. Colorful cat gel pens that'll make you want to stop what you're doing and write in your bullet journal right ~meow~.


    Promising review: "These pens are super cute and I was very impressed with how well the ink flows out of them. I took them to work and have gotten so many compliments on them. Everybody knows which pens are mine since I am the resident cat lady and lover of all cute things in the office. I always smile when I see their little faces looking out at me from their pen holder. It's like their saying come play with us and write wonderful messages. I couldn't be happier with these little guys." —Goldie

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $5.99.

    27. Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream made with avocado and rose hip oil to keep your skin hydrated during the harsh winter months and calm inflammation and irritations.

    drhauschkausa / Via

    Promising review: "I bought this cause JLo uses it (read about it online!) and looks amazing at 50, so if it works for her then I'm sold. I have mature skin so I wanted something to help diminish fine lines and wrinkles and this did not disappoint. I have oily skin as well. I use a very small amount in the morning and at night after washing my face. It smells just like roses but best of all I feel like it's helping with my mature skin. 5/5 would and have already recommended it!" —TC

    Get it from Dermstore for $45.

    28. Hope's Perfect Sink cleaner and polish that'll remove stains from sinks of all kinds. Stainless steel? Yep! Cast iron? Absolutely! Porcelain? Sure, will!, Amazon

    Promising review "I only wish I had a before picture. We bought our house two years ago. Prior to us, it had been used and abused as a rental house for about a decade. Our porcelain kitchen sink was just disgusting. My husband tried his best when we first moved in to get it to even resemble the original white, but the bottoms were just permanently stained a tan color. I gave up. Installing a new sink was added to the honey do list. I saw this product on a BuzzFeed article and bought it on a whim, it was cheap and I figured it couldn’t make the sink any worse. Holy crap! I’m absolutely blow away. I put a bit on our side with the disposal, the worst stained. I used a scrubbing brush drill bit on my power drill and went in a quick circle around the basin. 10 seconds tops. Boom. The sink was white. Not just white. The brilliant, bright original white it was supposed to be. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I called my husband over and he stared mouth open at the sink then grabbed this stuff out of my hand. 'What is this stuff!!? I went to town on both sides excessively for probably 10 minutes total and my ugly sink looks shiny and white again. No more new sink for us. I couldn’t be more impressed. I’m subscribed now!" —Danielle

    Get it from Amazon for $3.97.

    29. A Gumby dog toy that's kind of ridiculous but'll look hilarious (albeit in a slightly morbid way) hanging from your pup's mouth while they run around the house playing.,

    Promising review: "Gumby has been in my home for about two weeks now. My dog grabbed Gumby out of my hand when I took it out of the box and it has become his new favorite toy. Everywhere that he goes in the house, Gumby is hanging out of his mouth. If he is laying down somewhere, Gumby isn't far away. He treats this toy different than the other ones that I have purchased for him. It's not a chew toy to him and he doesn't throw it around. He just holds it in his mouth. All the time. It's just odd but we are going with it because it seems to make him happy." —Lanie

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    30. A zodiac constellation ring any minimalist would be happy to add to their jewelry collection. Let the accessory stars align!

    ChoiceByChoilnc / Etsy

    Promising review: "These rings are beautiful. I ordered one for my zodiac sign and one for my husband’s. I wear them together and they look great. I get tons of compliments. I ordered another to give to my sister for her birthday. The stones are small and it is simple and delicate. Beautifully made. Love love love I wear these as my wedding ring." —luharrell12065

    Get it from ChoiceByChoilnc on Etsy for $16.99 (available in sizes 6–8, all 12 zodiac signs, and in gold or silver).

    31. An Instant Pot lid made of tempered glass that'll fit seamlessly over over a 3-quart pressure cooker — great for anyone who likes to *sneak a peak* on their slow cooking meal.


    Promising review: "This should have been included as part of the Instant Pot. Simpler and easier to clean than the regular lid, useful for slow-cooking or sautéing. Also, after cooking I replace the heavy pressure-cooker top with this much lighter glass one. Good for moving the pot to the refrigerator or oven, it is less bulky than the cooking top." —G. Donald Bain

    Get it from Amazon for $12.79.

    32. And The Big Activity Book For Anxious People filled with weird coping mechanisms, soothing facts, coloring pages, and other activities to help soothe your brain and keep you entertained for days.


    Promising review: "This book is exactly what it says it is: a big activity book for anxious people! It’s got some great activities inside that totally keep me busy, keep my anxiety in check, and truly is a great time suck to keep my mind focused on the activities and an escape from whatever is consuming me those days. Cannot recommend this book enough!!!" —Alex R. Pepin
