    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 comfy pet cot so your four-legged friend can have a place to get the best nap of their life while waiting for you to get home.

    Promising Review: "This is an awesome bed for my Labrador. She is about 60 pounds and it's a perfect size for her. She loves her bed and I was worried when it was time to get her a new bed she might not take to it right away, but she jumped right on it and absolutely loves it! I'm thrilled with the quality and how durable the materials were! It was easy to put together and looks great in any room! I might have to order another just to have out on our front porch, where she likes to lay in the warmer months." —Aimee

    Price: $14.99 Sizes: S-XL Colors: gray, chocolate

    2. A super duper useful toaster that can get your morning bagel to the right amount of crispiness.

    Now I want a bagel.

    Promising Review: "I got this toaster as a replacement for a toaster that broke within a year and a half. I have not had this that long yet, however, it toasts more evenly and in less time than the other one did when it was brand new. I really appreciate the bagel and frozen functions on this. It also has a very nice look with the black and stainless steel, and goes well with all my other black and stainless-steel appliances of differing brands. It has a nice, slim design and fits well on my counter without taking up too much space." —kayjaytee7114

    Price: $15.99+ Colors: red, black

    3. Elie Wiesel's memoir Night to remember the atrocities of the Holocaust and the survival of a people.

    Promising Review: "Night is a sobering and intensely personal account of a young boy's experiences during the Holocaust. It starts with the emptying of the ghetto, relocation to the concentration camps, the horrors of those camps, and the final forced march as the Allied Forces approach and ultimately free the survivors. I have read many books about the Holocaust, but none has brought the horrible events home as much as Night. It is eerily personal. Having said the above, the book is a fast and well-written read if you can tolerate the horrifying account of what mankind can do to mankind, and then realize that similar atrocities continue to this day." —charles peterson

    Price: $6+ Formats: paperback, hardcover, and Kindle

    4. A bunch of globe string lights so your porch or living room can be filled with romantic ambiance.

    Includes 50 bulbs in a set.

    Promising Review: "Awesome and bright! I bought two for our backyard and it was more than enough. The lights are very sturdy. They can deal with the heat, rain, and wind while still working perfectly!" —TheeBriBri

    Price: $30.95

    5. A marble-patterned iPhone 6 case with shock-proof technology so it can protect your phone from those unfortunate slips caused by your butter fingers.

    Promising Review: "It's gorgeous, and I've received many compliments! The case is durable, and the print is nicely done. I have dropped it many times, but you can't notice any scratches or damage." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $8.98

    6. A jar of Suavecito Pomade that can style and give texture to your long or short hair without making it flakey or crunchy. / Via @suavecitopomade

    Promising Review: "I love this pomade! I've tried a lot of pomades, some petroleum-based and some water-based. I love the hold and look of the petroleum-based, but getting it out is a PAIN! After trying lots of water-based pomades, Suavecito is the one I buy over and over again. I usually keep both the regular and firme on hand. It goes in my hair easily and comes out even easier. For my hair style, I find that adding it to my slightly damp hair and then styling works best for me and gives me the sheen I like. I get a great all day hold and don't even bother carrying a comb with me." —Rob

    Price: $10.33

    7. A four-pack of Burt's Bees lip balm to soothe dry, chapped lips and turn them into soft pillows of flesh. / Via @burtsbees

    Promising Review: "Burt's Bees is the best moisturizing lip balm available. My lips dry easily from being in so much air conditioning in the Florida heat. If they get too dry, I get cold sores, which are just misery multiplied. I keep tubes of Burt's Bees everywhere to avoid having dry lips. It goes on without feeling overly greasy, yet actually does moisturize. There isn't an overwhelming odor and I like that it's natural." —Sissy39

    Price: $8.99

    8. A useful journal essential for planning out your life and goals so you won't ever fret over the state of your future.

    Promising Review: "This planner has such a beautiful cover and interior. It is so sturdy, and perfect if you like a lot of space. I haven't been using stickers, just a gel pen and everything is so spacious and versatile." —Valerie Jaretsky

    Price: $16.99

    9. A skater dress with scallop pleats, perfect for going to that hot date after work.

    Promising Review: "I love this dress! The quality of the material is good. It was my birthday dress and it made me feel so pretty and happy. It fits well, and is so flowy, flirty, and fun!" —araxya

    Price: $16.99+ Sizes: S-XXL Colors: black, red, white, pink, yellow, and blue

    10. Setting spray for those nights when you just know you're gonna party like a rockstar and need that full face to stay right where it is.

    Promising Review: "This changed my life! I'm a waitress, so I'm constantly surrounded by food and always sweaty from running around. I never get a shiny forehead with this stuff! My eyeshadow doesn't move! I mean, this is just amazing!" —Erynn

    Price: $6.80

    11. The super popular and fascinating novel Things Fall Apart tells the story of how colonization affects the life of a local African community.

    You probably read it in high school, so why not do a re-read?

    Promising Review: "This book is cleverly and excellently written. It covers colonization from the perspective of the Africans who experienced it firsthand. It also highlights the rich African customs and ways of life, and the impact of transitioning into new ideas." —Mark Bonyo Buogha

    Price: $11.01 Formats: paperback, hardcover, and Kindle

    12. A groovy-ass R&B album, Ctrl, so you can jam out in your room without any pants on because that's the only way to really feel the music, you know?

    Promising Review: "SZA speaks her truth and explains what control means to her. This is a truly refreshing album! I'm in love with it." —ChannetteSD

    Price: $9.32

    13. A geeky R2-D2 thermos perfect for keeping your water cold for literal hours. C-3PO would be proud.

    Promising Review: "These are great. My toddler loves the R2-D2 design and drinking from the built-in straw. We love that his milk stays cold for several hours, even in Phoenix in the summer." —Brain C.

    Price: $11.09

    14. A Wonder Woman costume to show your little one just how cool girl power can be.,

    Promising Review: "This was such a great costume for my little 4-year-old! She was such a hit during her school dress-up parade and when she was trick-or-treating! The whole costume was great, and she wore it for the three days!" —Sarah

    Price: $27.33 Sizes: S-L

    15. A ton of condoms for when you wanna get hot and heavy because the only sex is safe sex. I heard that in a health class, somewhere.

    Promising Review: "They give me and my partner the variety of having the right condom for the mood we're in. They feel great and are durable!" —AL_dad22

    Price: $17.94

    16. A pair of shiny, metallic shorts to look totally fashionable while getting your workout in at the gym.

    Promising Review: "These are super cute, comfy, and fit as expected. They look pricey, and made me feel fancy while still being comfortable. I loved the pockets." —Haley DeLaura

    Price: $11.99+ Sizes: XS-2XL Colors: black, pink, gold, yellow, and bronze

    17. And the movie Get Out. Why not watch a man escape from the literal sunken place over and over again?

    Promising Review: "Damn this was a tense movie. It's more of a suspense or thriller than a horror film, which a good thing because I'm not into gore. It's the kind of film where you don't want to move or even breathe. The kind of film that gets in your head. Nearly every character weirded me out. At first I thought the girl who brought her boyfriend home naively believed that her family wasn't at all racist. The behavior she saw from them was only because she'd never introduced them to a black guy and that now she was seeing a different side of them. Man was I wrong. One of the best psychological thrillers I've seen in a long time." —Sade

    Price: $9.99+ Formats: DVD, Amazon Video, and 4K

    Get out while you still can, man.
