    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers", which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things on the list this week:

    1. A pair of polarized sunnies that'll be awesome for completing your spring outfit while protecting your precious eyes from UV damage.

    Promising review: "WOW! Such cool sunglasses! I've been looking for an affordable pair of polarized sunglasses and these are super cute! I love how snugly they fit on the face, and while I tend to not like the nose pads on other glasses, these are quite comfy." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $10.99 (available in 14 colors)

    2. A bohemian shift dress to wear whenever you're feeling super casual and carefree.

    Promising review: "This dress is so cute! I was thrilled when it arrived. The colors are bright and vivid, and the fabric is smooth and silky, without being sheer. I wore it with wedge flip flops and long necklaces, and it looked wonderful." —K. Mendonca

    Price: $16.85+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 21 colors)

    3. A roll-up dish drying rack with silicone-coated steel so none of your precious glassware or bakeware slips and falls into oblivion while drying.

    It's also heat-resistant up to 400 degrees and dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Wow. This mat is incredibly useful and versatile. We use it daily to hold just-washed dishes. They don't slip off the silicone-coated surface and the water drains into the sink instead of creating a messy puddle on the counter. The silicone coating lets it double as an insulated surface for hot pots and pans. It seems sturdy so far, rolls up for storage, but is, dare I say, elegant enough to remain on the sink at the ready for the next cooking or cleaning project." —mama reads

    Price: $27.98

    4. A simply adorable pair of baby pajamas that'll have your kiddo believing they're some kind of animal during playtime (and in their dreams).

    Promising review: "Great quality, beautiful, and comfortable. I bought so many pajamas from this brand and all of them were great. Just buy one size bigger. Recommend!" —Benjamin

    Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and 14 animals)

    5. A vintage-style swing dress made out of jersey fabric for occasions where you can't actually wear jeans, but still wanna be super comfortable.,

    Promising review: "New favorite dress! I absolutely love it! It is soft, comfy, and very flattering. The wide, V-cut straps make it easy to wear any bra under without having to worry about adjusting the straps constantly." —Oakly112

    Price: $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 17 colors)

    6. A copy of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, for getting to know yourself and what you need in a relationship, as well as what your partner requires so y'all can thrive and be happy for years to come.

    Promising review: "This book was recommended to me and I'm am so glad I read it. I love to cook for my family and after reading this book I now know my love language is about getting recognition for my efforts. It's also helped me realize how to better recognize the needs of my husband and children based on their love languages. I think everyone can get some helpful insights from reading it." —Susan Bishop

    Price: $9.59

    7. An electric griddle with removable handles and non-stick coating to make cooking incredibly easy... and the clean up even easier!

    Promising review: "This is the best griddle ever! Grilled cheese, eggs, and pancakes turn out perfect. This griddle heats evenly and consistently. I do rub a bit of vegetable oil on it each time I use it. It is an extra large griddle so you can do six grilled cheese sandwiches or pancakes and have enough room to get your spatula in and flip the food over. The handles come off so you can easily fit it in the sink to clean." —eaturveggies

    Price: $34.90

    8. A witty T-shirt that'll display your intense love for all things taco.

    Price: $4.99+ (available in sizes S–5XL and 12 colors).

    9. A leather iPhone X case to protect your precious device while looking as trendy as possible.

    Promising review: "I've always been a huge fan of Apple leather cases. They are beautifully designed, manufactured from real leather, and have a quality leather scent. Not only are they slim, they also protect your iPhone really well. The best part about these leather cases is that over time the leather wears out and changes all depending on how you treat it. The case has enough protrusion to protect the camera lens and the front display from coming in contact with any surface. It also comes with one year of warranty in case the case cracks or something abnormal happens." —Pedram Miyabi

    Price: $34.30 (available in nine colors)

    10. A case of Shakespearean Insult Bandages, because what's a boo-boo without some self-deprecating humor so you won't ever injure yourself again?

    Promising review: "Love these bandages! My daughter's school recently performed Macbeth and these were a big hit during build week! My daughter started handing these out when people were injuring themselves and they got lots of laughs!" —DB

    Price: $6.94 (for a pack of 15)

    11. A 100-pack of AA batteries (that have a shelf life up to 10 years!) for juicing up all of your devices, so you'll always be prepared for the next natural disaster (or the upcoming apocalypse).

    Promising review: "I bought a big pack of the AAA batteries, but really didn't put them through the test until Hurricane Matthew. They worked awesome. I never had to change batteries in the lanterns after five days of heavy use, and eight to nine hours a day. They worked great in my son's toys, our remote controls, just everything. I know what brand I will buy from now on! Great job Amazon." —catinjax

    Price: $23.99 (also available in AAA)

    12. A calming houseplant you can place anywhere in your apartment for the right amount of green in your space.

    Promising review: "Lovely plants. I bought two. They are both thriving. I have them each in window sills; one in the kitchen and one in the sunroom. I water them every couple of days. No brown leaves, losing leaves, or wilting. They grow fast so I replanted two into larger pots already. It's only been three months!" —Suzanne Lanoue

    Price: $.49+

    13. A V-neck crop top that'll spice up any outfit you had planned in your head. Plus with the long sleeves, you'll be warm while serving looks.,

    Promising review: "Lovely soft fabric, flattering fit. Deep v but not too deep. This is a shorter shirt; comes to my natural waist and works well with high waisted bottoms or vintage skirts." —Ramanda

    Price: $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 24 colors)

    14. A Black Panther Funko Pop so you can have a bit of Wakanda on your desk while you're trying to come up with the newest technological advancement.

    Promising review: "WAKANDA FOREVER!" —JR

    Price: $7.33

    15. An automatic can opener that'll automatically attach without creating dangerous edges that cut your precious fingers.

    It's also totally dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Best can opener we've ever had. I have lost count of how many classic can openers my wife and I have purchased over our 20+ years or marriage and this is by far the best." —Francisco V.

    Price: $16.68 (available in three colors)

    16. A cool and casual stripped T-shirt to pair with a great pair of jeans or leggings since it's amazingly versatile!

    Promising review: "I love this! The feel of this blouse is as easy and breezy as they come. The quality is outstanding, wow! This has really exceeded my expectations. I expected just a nice blouse that I would be wearing at home while I am chilling and relaxing, but what I got was an entirely different blouse. It is edgy, hip, and cool. I have worn this to a beach party, on a night out with the girls, and in my everyday life. On all occasions, I got compliments about my blouse. It fits well. It washes well. I feel wonderful and comfortable. I love it!" —Jane Mulder

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and nine colors)

    17. A pair of trendy strappy sandals made out of nylon so they won't irritate the tops of your feet while you look as cute as possible.

    Promising review: "These are super cute, casual sandals for kicking around this summer. I have wide feet and they fit me fine. A really excellent

    choice for a flat summer shoe." —Jackie

    Price: $24.95+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 13 colors)

    18. A handheld vacuum cleaner attachment that'll get all of the stray dust from hard-to-reach corners.

    It's compatible with most vacuum cleaners!

    Promising review: "This is really cool! The straws are a lot stiffer than I had thought/expected. That said, it is perfect for cleaning the edge of the carpet near the baseboards and a million other little crevices like between the couch or chair cushions, even under and around the radiators. The potential uses for this are limitless!" —Stephanie Antone

    Price: $9.99

    19. A glow-in-the-dark pacifier to help soothe your baby while looking really fucking cool. Plus, they can find it if it slips out of their mouth throughout the night.

    Promising review: "Glow in the dark pacifiers are the smartest baby invention to cross my path!! Not only can we see them in the middle of the night, if the baby wakes up, he can see them, too! He will cry for a minute, look for the glow, and soothe himself! MAM, you have outdone yourself with glow in the dark pacifiers! THANK YOU from tired moms and dads everywhere!" —DancerUMD

    Price: $5.99

    20. A reliable mouth guard perfect for anyone age 11 and up who would absolutely adore to play sports and prevent their teeth getting smacked out of their mouths while doing their thing.

    Promising review: "I really like this mouth guard. I have a small mouth and most soak-and-mold mouth guards are really bulky and difficult to use. I usually turn into a drooly mess! But this one molds perfectly to my teeth and barely feels like I have anything in my mouth. It's also very easy to clean, which is great because I practice Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu upwards of four times a week, and I'm a bit of a germaphobe. Despite this mouth guard being thin, which enables you to talk and drink water with little difficulty, it does a decent job at absorbing impact when you take hits to the face." —Marlena Kubota

    Price: $24.99 (available in 12 colors).

    21. A copy of Loving Vincent, an Oscar-nominated movie for understanding the artistic genius and inner turmoil of one of the greatest painters in history.

    Promising review: "This unique presentation of the mystery surrounding the artistic genius' death is so brilliantly executed the viewer will be sucked right into his troubled world. The whole creation explodes with such visual passion it's easy to forget it's animated. The 'painted' characters come alive, or it's certainly easy to believe them to be so. The decision to put the lead character in a yellow jacket was ingenious." —C. Donato

    Price: $16.14 (also available on DVD).

    That shit is breathtaking, bro!
