    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 What I Love About Dad fill-in journal so you can tell your father (or beloved father-figure) just how much you love them without the sarcasm that usually follows.

    Promising review: "My dad loved this. This book gives you fill in the blanks on each page and it makes it easy to express your love for your dad, whether through jokes or serious, thoughtful sentiments. Great gift for Father's Day, birthdays, or any holiday really. Buy it for your dad and write genuine stuff and he'll probably keep it forever!" —perrierrocher

    Price: $14.90 (available in 19 other versions)

    2. A set of super absorbent, cabana-style beach towels, because you'd love to properly dry off after a dip in the pool...or the ocean.

    Promising review: "We live just 300 yards from the beach and we go through towels quickly. We use them, our visiting family and friends use them, and we use them around the pool as well. So many of the 'tourist' towels really don't stand up to the wear, but these do. They are actual towels and not beach front souvenirs! Absorbent and soft the colors stay vibrant; they're great towels." —Dr. L

    Price: $30.99 (for a pack of four)

    3. A double-layer snack bowl perfect for eating pistachios or peanuts, because you can place the trash in the bottom bowl and throw it out once you're finished munching.

    Promising review: "I bought this bowl for my husband who loves pistachios. He used to have to fish around the open shells to find nuts that still needed eating, but this eliminates that. It also looks a lot neater and is easier to dump out the old shells. We also have had it out when entertaining guests and it was nice that everyone could just dump the empty shells into the bottom." —CK

    Price: $13.97+ (also available in grey)

    4. A vintage-style canvas toiletry bag to easily help you find all of your makeup and skincare products when you're on the vacation of your dreams.

    Promising review: I was surprised by the quality of this product. For the price I paid, I was expecting a cheap bag with plastic zippers and leather-ish material. What I got was a heavy canvas bag with real heavy duty leather trim and brass zippers that operate flawlessly. Its the perfect size for a travel or gym toiletry bag. For the price, this is seriously rugged." —Devin Wood

    Price: $15.99 (available in four colors)

    5. A special back and neck massager with added heat technology that'll really kneed out the kink you got in your shoulder from moving your friend's furniture as a favor.

    It comes with eight massage balls, three speeds and strengths, two massage directions for variety, and a bag so you can take peaceful bliss with you.

    Promising review: "This massager is a hundred percent as advertised, WOW. Heat and shiatsu are both amazing. I started swimming and my entire back gets sore plus I suffer from regular neck pain and hold my stress in my neck and shoulders. I use this for 10–15 minutes and it completely relaxes my entire back and neck. It looks like an awkward design at first, but the ratings were so good I took a chance and I am SO glad I did. Awesome." —KC

    Price: $49.97

    6. A "Best Farter" mug that'll make your dad actually laugh out loud from the inappropriateness of it all on Father's Day.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a fun Christmas gift for my dad and he loves it. He uses it everyday now, lol. If you're in the market for a light hearted and funny gift for your dad, this is great! The packaging was adequate and none of the mugs I ordered were damaged during shipment, which is great." —Candy Zimmerman

    Price: $13.99 (available in four colors)

    7. A bottle of sugar-free, maple-flavored syrup made with monk fruit for anyone who wants the richness of syrup, but can't handle sugar very well.

    Promising review: "I am so happy to have found this syrup. I have been pre-diabetic for a few years and have been seriously avoiding sugar for about five years (and so don't have traditional maple syrup). I just recently found a decent gluten-free and low carb pancake mix and this syrup is amazing with it!" —Mandy510

    Price: $10

    8. A stainless steel pineapple peeler and corer so you can make authentic piña coladas without chopping off part of a finger.

    You can keep the shell of the pineapple to drink out of and includes a slicer to make evenly-shaped cubes.

    Promising review: "It's very easy to use and it really does work. You can core a pineapple in about 10 seconds, it's great! So far, I've noticed two ways to do it: one where you send the corer all the way through the pineapple (this way is messy but easy because everything slides right out) or you can put the corer almost all the way through and yank out the core (less messy, a little more challenging). I've been using it the first way over the sink. Love this thing!" —Elieen Dover

    Price: $10.99

    9. A strappy swim dress, because you've been looking for a cute-ass one-piece for your next trip to Rio.,

    And it's so versatile, you can even wear it OUT of the pool!

    Promising review: "This bathing suit is magic. Seriously though, finding an affordable suit that has great support, while still looking stylish is a very difficult task. This suit does all of that. The polka-dots are super cute. Couldn't be happier." —Artist369

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes S–4XL and 14 colors)

    10. A cute bucket hat to protect your precious head from the sun's wild rays while you're out fishing for the biggest catch of summer 2018.

    Plus you'll be serving some early '00s realness.

    Promising review: "It really fits well and kept the sun off my head. Going to get my girlfriend's daughter one since she really liked the fit and look." —ccstar

    Price: $3.46+ (available in sizes S–XL and 35 colors)

    11. A simple glass pitcher perfect for making the most southern sweet tea in the summer, so you can slowly sip your heavenly drink on your porch watching some drama unfold like a real-life Kermit meme.

    The pitcher is made from borosilicate glass, which is just a fancy way to say you can put boiling water up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit without shattering. It's also dishwasher-safe, can hold up to 68 ounces of liquid and has a fliter-lid to steep tea or add some refreshing fruit (without getting it in your glass). Cute.

    Promising review: "This pitcher is just right for leaving fruit and vegetables in water or anything else. It also looks wonderful when you take the lid off and just use the glass pitcher portion." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $20.99

    12. A super flowy maxi skirt so you can stunt on your crush whenever they finally ask you out on a date.

    Promising review: "Thin, lightweight material perfect for summer or fall, comfortable to wear all day, can dress it up to wear it out. It is the perfect length, and I'm able to wear wedges with it. I also love the slits up the sides." —Caitlin S

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S–3X and 30 colors and styles)

    13. A Kong bone for your pupper who just loves to chew up everything she sees. You can even stuff up to four treats in the bone to keep her busy for hours!

    Well maybe not HOURS, but you can hope!

    Promising review: "My Great Dane (aka German Mastiff) adores this bone. He just prances around with it in his mouth for a few minutes and then lays down to chew. I don't even have to put any treats in it. He's yet to destroy it after having it a little over a year (can't say the same for the rubbery Nylabone I gave him, which only lasted four days). He even tucks it into his dog house when he's not using it. I bought this one because my older dog started taking notice. He liked to use his as a pillow." —CloakesSparrow

    Price: $4.10+ (available in four sizes)

    14. A two-pack, double port USB wall chargers, because you and bae have so many fucking devices that just can't hold a damn charge.

    Promising review: "I decided to order these because in our family we seem to misplace the base chargers but have plenty of usb cords around. With five people trying to charge devices, someone is always left waiting for a free plug. These solved that problem. They work well. Initially we were worried because we heard a buzzing sound when it was plugged in. But no worries, it works as expected and takes less space than using multiple plugs." —Ms. C

    Price: $9.99 (available in 10 colors).

    15. A hamburger meat chopper to finely separate your ground meat into even chunks so that lasagna you're cooking can be over-the-top delicious.

    The chopper is heat-safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and can be used on non-stick surfaces, too.

    Promising review: "How have I cooked ground meat for all these years without this? The increased efficiency of having five blades as opposed to one on a spatula is beyond compare. This makes short work of making taco meat, and by using a chop and twist, you can mix the seasoning quickly. Get one." —C. Cooling

    Price: $6.23

    16. An under eye cream with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and caffeine that'll slowly even out the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

    Promising review: "My crow's feet and puffiness have visibly diminished! There wasn't any irritation at all! I have very sensitive skin, and this product works wonders. Best serum for my am eye routine! My eyeshadow primer and shadows go on smoothly! I also love that this is responsibly sourced." —Retired teacher

    Price: $17.97

    17. A useful pool float to fall asleep in while you're taking a dip in your best friend's infinity pool.

    You can even fill it with water or ice and stick it in your backyard if you want a bit of a splash, but don't actually have access to a pool.

    Promising review: "Very big and durable float. Plenty of room for all the kids or for you to lounge in the pool without getting wet." —Jenn

    Price: $28.30

    18. A keyboard and mouse wrist rest pads with memory foam, because you'd prefer if you didn't get carpal tunnel at 25. You might have a cushy office job, but you don't want weak office limbs.

    The pads have ergonomic touch, which means the pads don't easily bounce back and move out of shape. They also have non-skid rubber bases to prevent sliding.

    Promising review: "My wrist was hurting so badly I could barely move it. I bought these pads and the pain went away within days. They are very comfortable. They're soft enough to cradle your wrist, but firm enough to protect it from injury. I never realized just how hard I was pressing my wrist onto the table; there's a sizable impression on the pad every time I lift my wrist. A lot of pads are too firm to do anything for you, but this one is very soft and comfortable." —David J. Garcia

    Price: $10.99+ (available in three sizes).

    19. A pack of paper popcorn bags with a classic design to make your monthly movie nights as entertaining as possible, from the bottom to the top.

    Promising review: "We bought these to go with a popcorn cart and everyone is loving them. Just enough for one, but not too much. For our true popcorn lovers, they can refill their bags during the event." —Ann Libby

    Price: $6.24

    20. A pack of eco-friendly shampoo and conditioner bars made of all-natural ingredients for super shiny, soft, and touchable hair.

    The sampler set includes five varieties: Frizz Wrangler, Heali Kiwi, Wonderbar, Saint Clements, and The Guardian.

    Promising review: "I love these shampoos and conditioners! I am so surprised at how soft and smooth my hair is. The shampoo suds up nicely and my hair feels so good! It’s definitely worth the price, and I’m decreasing my footprint in the earth so it’s a win-win!" —Linda B

    Price: $15.50 (for a pack of five).

    21. And a copy of The Fox and the Hound and its sequel, so you can spend your Saturday night crying over the power of friendship and the limits of human empathy.

    Who knew Disney has been teaching us life lessons through their movies? Wow.

    Promising review: "I grew up watching this classic as a kid. As an adult, I find it hard to get into the sequel but could see why younger generations enjoy it. The first movie is a classic. I purchased it for an old friend of mine who was ecstatic to have a DVD copy of one of her childhood favorites she intends to share with her children." —FoxHole

    Price: $9.96 (also available on Blu-ray).

    Pour one out for Fox, he was a real one.

    Walt Disney Pictures
