    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 found on the list this week:

    1. A copy of Ready Player One that'll get you in the right frame of mind to watch the futuristic movie full of old pop culture references.

    The movie comes out March 29th!

    Promising review: "I absolutely loved this book. There aren't many books that will keep me fully interested throughout the entire story. Most novels have some slow spots that are a little tough to trudge through. This one kept me interested the entire time. I grew up in the '80s and '90s, and I have a shared experience with one of the main characters in this book regarding life, video games, and movies during that time. I love how much work the author put into getting everything correct, down to the quirks, errors, hidden secrets, and obscure lyrics of the subject matter that is so important to this story. He takes what was a magical time of my youth and makes it part of a wonderful experience in my adult life." β€”Timothy C. Flood

    Price: $8.80

    2. A clip-on selfie light with three illumination settings, because you love taking a bomb-ass selfie, and a dark club will NOT get in your way!

    It can clip onto any laptop, tablet, or phone and is compatible with three AAA batteries.

    Promising review: "I have a home with terrible natural light and I needed something to help me out. This has been exactly what I needed. It clips onto all my devices, like a chip bag clip, and gives my pictures the light they need. There are three settings: low, medium and high." β€”emilyjolowry

    Price: $6.50

    3. A rustic chalkboard to place on your countertop so all of your loved ones can know just what's on the menu.

    It has a magnetic writing surface that doubles as a bulletin board, plus a kickstand design so you can move it anywhere you please!

    Promising review: "I love this as a rustic menu board either in the center of our table or on the bar or counter for holiday meals. It's not so big that it takes up too much space on the table, but it fits an entire menu very nicely. The kids love it when I've finished with it!" β€”MizzHilton

    Price: $15.99

    4. A pair of quick-dry flamingo swim trunks perfect for going to Cabo on spring break and serving some '90s realness.

    Promising review: "These are perfect! We got them for my husband to wear for my 30th birthday party a '90s-themed beach party! Can't wait for him to rock these, we are going to be the perfect Zach and Kelly!" β€”Katherine A. Hall

    Price: $17.99+ (available in sizes S–4X and eight colors).

    5. A cupcake batter dispenser so all of your baked goods (and pancakes) can be perfectly portioned and cook evenly!

    It holds up to four cups of batter!

    Promising review: "Great item! Bought this for my nine-year-old daughter so that making cupcakes would be easier, and that's just it! Such a breeze for her now and virtually no mess like the past of trying to spoon it and each cup. Recommend this for all ages because I can say that I an adult even enjoyed using it!" β€”MomShopper

    Price: $13.99

    6. A sushi making kit for perfectly crafted California rolls to munch on during a date night.

    It includes two rolling mats, a rice spoon, and a rice spreader!

    Promising review: "I've never made sushi or gimbap in my life. So, I decided to order this product because sushi and gimbap are some of my favorite foods, and I wanted to try my hand at making my own, and with these rolling mats and the rice spreader, it couldn't have been easier! Perfect on the first try." β€”Connor

    Price: $6.99

    7. A useful coffee and spice grinder, because you still like to use whole, fresh-ground coffee beans for more flavor. You can even use it on other, uh, ~herbs~ if you're into that.

    Includes a removable stainless steel cup for easy clean up!

    Promising review: "I am using this exclusively as my spice grinder. It grinds coarse and finer herbs and salt to a fine powder in a very short period of time, exactly what I wanted. It feels very sturdy and well made. The removable cup design works perfectly for grinding, unseating the cup and then transferring the ground item(s) to wherever you need to." β€”BookMike

    Price: $22.95

    8. A bottle of Mario Badescu drying lotion that'll gently target those persistent pimples overnight with the help of salicylic acid, sulfur, and calamine.

    @mariobadescu / Via

    Promising review: "This stuff is great. It reduces redness and swelling, especially cystic pimples. Just make sure you fully take it off before stepping out the door!" β€”L. DeSantis

    Price: $17

    9. A bunny blanket made with soft, textured fabric so your favorite baby can fall asleep cuddling something ridiculously adorable.

    Promising review: "My daughter loves this bunny! She sleeps with it every night. It has held up pretty well to her abuse which includes sucking on the face to soothe herself to sleep and to multiple washes. Hopefully, it will last forever because I don't know what we'd do without it!" β€”christina l.

    Price: $13.68

    10. A Shuri Funko Pop, because you can't get enough of the sheer dopeness of Black Panther, and she's a literal badass genius!

    Promising review: "I bought this after seeing the film twice. The doll is amazing! Her braids are so well done and incredibly detailed. Her outfit is also on point and if you look closely, you can see that her glove guns are shaped as two black panthers." β€”Aliza Hausman

    Price: $9.99

    11. A handy ceramic space heater with an adjustable thermostat, because winter isn't completely over yet, and your toes are fucking freezing.

    Heats up to 1500 watts, has a fan-only option, and is totally quiet if you're looking to put this in your bedroom!

    Promising review: "Works great. It gives off a good amount of heat for such a tiny heater. I used this in my office under my desk. It's quiet and can heat up a large area very well. I've actually received complaints from co-workers because this heater works a little too well and it makes the rest of the office area too hot for them. I've used it at home in my bathroom a couple times in the winter and it does a good job heating there too. It doesn't make too much of a noise when it is on, and it has an auto shut off feature if it gets too hot or if it tips over." β€”Jessi

    Price: $29.99+ (also available in black).

    12. A pair of comfy joggers to slip on when you'd rather die than shimmy into some skinny jeans just to go to the mall on the weekend.

    Promising review: "I bought three pairs of these because I love them so much. They are so soft, comfortable, and very flattering. I power lift and have a hard time finding pants that will fit over my bum and quads, but these fit great and really accentuated my curves. They are loose but not TOO loose; just enough to be comfy loungewear or lifting pants." β€”Leah Hughley

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 24 colors).

    13. A copy of Oh Crap! Potty Training: Everything Modern Parents Need to Know to Do It Once and Do It Right so your little one doesn't do number one or two in their pants anymore and you don't go crazy trying to chase them all around the house telling them to put their big kid pants on.

    Promising review: "I have been a nanny and taught pre-school for years. I've potty trained many kids, but when it came to my own child I quickly realized that I was always doing what the other parents were telling me to do, and didn't really have my own method. This book is so good! Read it, mentally prepare, then jump in with both feet. I won't lie, the first couple of days will be crazy, but if you are willing to put in the effort it is so worth it! My son was completely trained so much faster than I ever expected." β€”Sarah L.

    Price: $9.48 (also available on Kindle).

    14. An overnight cream with vitamin E to hydrate your dry skin while you catch some Z's so you can prepare yourself for another day of the bullshit.

    Promising review: "Love to feel my skin when I wake up! I have dry skin, but get hot with too-thick creams or gels. This is incredibly light and long-lasting. The texture feels almost whipped. Soaks in immediately and seems to change the texture of my face. I recently have experimented with creams costing upwards to $200, and this one beats them all. Thank goodness!" β€”Carol Royer

    Price: $20.74

    15. A bluetooth receiver to plug into your auxiliary stereo so your car time can be completely hands-free.

    You can connect up to two Bluetooth devices at once so you can listen to tunes and NOT get lost on your great American road trip.

    Promising review: "Occasionally I drive my in-laws' 2016 Dodge Ram (which has Bluetooth), and I love listening to my audiobooks in their truck. With this, I can pop it into the audio jack and it is virtually the same, except even better because I don't have to have an app on my phone like with the truck. You can pause your music, answer phone calls, hang up, and switch songs all from the device. I love this thing and can't believe I never knew something like this existed." β€”KrisSwid

    Price: $13.99 (available in two colors).

    16. A full-coverage, underwire bra, because there's only so many times you can wear your favorite boulder holder without it rebelling and stabbing you in the side.

    Promising review: "This bra is so comfortable! There is no digging or poking with the underwire and there is no bulging or gaping anywhere. I hate bras that make me feel fuller or make my shirts bulge out more. This bra is so soft and comfortable that I have actually slept in it a few times. I am a 34D and I just ordered three more of these in different colors. You will not be disappointed with this bra. I have tried Victoria's Secret, Bali, and just about every other brand, but they are not comfortable after a few times wearing them. This bra gets better as time goes on. I can't say enough good things!" β€”michelle89064

    Price: $16.96+ (available in sizes 34B–40D and 19 colors).

    17. A flat, pre-seasoned cast iron griddle to make perfect flapjacks or crispy quesadillas without even trying!

    It's oven safe up to 500 degrees, which means you could make a mini pizza pie if you so dare!

    Promising review: "This is my most used go-to pan especially for scrambled eggs and pancakes. The low sides make it easy to access and scrape the bottom with a metal spatula. Cast iron is indestructible and you can always get a nice sear on things like steaks and burgers." β€”Research Obsessed

    Price: $14.88

    18. A gentle face cleanser that'll moisturize as it rids your skin of excess oil without irritating sensitive skin.

    Promising review: "This face wash is amazing. I found myself needing to update my skincare routine, due to going from oily skin to dry skin unexpectedly, and this fit the bill. I read some reviews, settled on this one, and I am completely satisfied. It doesn't cause my sensitive skin to feel like it's on fire, it doesn't dry your skin out, and there was an immediate difference in my skin. It doesn't foam up, so if you need that this isn't for you but it cleans beautifully. Couldn't have found a better fit." β€”Maria Preston

    Price: $15.18

    19. A 12-pack of super fun socks, because you keep on losing them to the sock monster that is your laundry so it's always good to stock up!

    Promising review: "These are awesome! I tend to have a problem with socks falling down because they are too small, I wear a shoe size 11, but these fit great! They are comfortable, and just the right thickness." β€”Angela Bailey

    Price: $9.99 (available in 13 colors and patterns).

    20. A set of shatterproof, clear champagne flutes (they're totally recyclable), making it easier to host fancy dinner parties without washing dishes.

    Promising review: "I got these glasses for a New Year's Eve party and was very happy with my purchase. They are sturdier and nicer than the party store plastic ones, yet put my mind at ease more than tipsy people carrying glass stemware around my apartment. After the party, I hand washed them and packed them up for next year. Totally recommend." β€”Holly

    Price: $10.99 (for a set of 12).

    21. The Oscar-winning The Shape Of Water (now available for pre-order), in which love literally conquers all... even if you're fond of an amphibian man who literally lives underwater.

    The fish man movie will drop on the 13th of March!

    I mean listen, the whole moving is extremely heart-warming! Guillermo did that!

    Promising review: "I watched this last night and was overwhelmed. It's the most gorgeous, most elegantly strange, most romantic fairytale of a movie. It's Cinderella. It's Beauty and the Beast. There are nods to various fairytales in the film, but it's not a movie for children. It's a humane monster and monstrous humans. It's gay rights. It's a brave and strong and capable woman who doesn't need her voice to make an indelible statement. It's surviving loneliness. It's human rights. It's tolerance vs intolerance. And KINDNESS, real kindness, an improbable love. It's a spy novel. And a romantic fantasy. It asks us, 'what is human?' And the sets look like you just entered another world; a beautiful one set in 1962. It's the magical elements of the heroine's home and the artist's home juxtaposed against the cruel, stark world where they work. There is just so much packed into one movie. It's why I MUST watch it again and again I think. And it leaves you with a surprise happily-ever-after that's just delightful." β€”Carla Martin-Wood

    Price: $19.96

    That's love, babe!
