Promising Review: "Yes, I can fit a whole bottle of wine in here! Saran Wrap it, take it to the beach and enjoy a tipsy day catching rays. Just remember the sun screen." —Jessica M.

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

3. A puurfect cat-shaped crossbody bag that has just the right amount of luxury.

Promising Review: "This adorable bag is the perfect little purse for almost any occasion! It's small, but surprisingly roomy on the inside. It fits everything I need for a night out perfectly. I was honestly surprised by how much I could fit in it! The quality is just as good as its cuteness!" —ehay91

Get it from ModCloth for $29.99.


4. A quick and easy sushi-making kit so you can start working on your secret hobby of crafting the most delicious dragon roll in existence.

Promising Review: "I've never rolled sushi before, and I'm sure my first time would have been a disaster if I had not purchased this product. This sushi rolling kit made it so easy to evenly roll and evenly slice each piece. The cleanup was a breeze, and whatever I didn't feel like hand washing, I popped in the top rack of my dishwasher." —Sarah Thrift

Get it from Amazon for $26.95.

5. Glorious lip butter with nourishing coconut oil to make your lips soft and pliant for multiple beijos.

Promising Review: "It smells so good; like toffee and coconut with a tropical twist. It's incredibly moisturizing too; a true softening balm. It isn't not sticky, tacky, or overly shiny." —Chrysanthemum

Get it from Cult Beauty for $19.40.

7. A fabulous hydrating facial spray with rosewater to transform dry and flaky skin to the glowing stuff it deserves to be. / Via @mariobadescu

Promising Review: "I have combination skin. During the summer it gets oily very fast, and during the winter it is extremely dull and dry looking. My skin is sensitive and most of the time has a pinkish red color to it when it is so dry and irritated. However, after using this spray, my skin is much healthier looking and has a dewy, fresh look. It even helped calm down the redness. I haven't had this for a full week yet and I'm head over heels in love. It's a holy grail in my skincare routine now!" —Haley O.

Get it from Amazon for $14.


8. Pigmented blush with a unique gel-cream formula for decorating your cheeks with a bit of buildable color.

Promising Review: "I absolutely love this blush! I've used powder, cream, mousse, and stain blush in the past, but none of those textures and formulas go on as smooth and natural as cloud paint. I love how it has a slight dewy finish to it and how lightweight it is on your skin. The color selection is perfect! I usually just dab on a little bit on my fingers and tap into the apples of my cheeks for a little color. I have it in shade 'Beam,' which looks very peachy and cute. A little goes a long way with this very pigmented blush." —kcbaby

Get it from Glossier for $18. Available in four shades.

9. A dual breakfast sandwich maker for when you want to eat in the morning but literally don't have the time to feed yourself.

Promising Review: "This has been a lifesaver for my husband and me in the morning. When I start the coffee pot, I plug in the breakfast maker too so it has a chance to warm up. By the time the coffee is ready, this is preheated. I LOVE that there is a timer on the machine so you can set it and forget it until the timer goes off. The sandwiches come out perfect, always. Use a toothpick to 'scramble' the egg right in the egg holder. It doesn't get any easier then this; it takes 30 seconds to put everything in, let the timer do its thing, and you can grab and go!" —Jennie K.

Get it from Amazon for $34.


13. A pinot grigio wine-making kit, because what's so hard about making fermented grapes tasty?

Promising Reviews: "It was fairly easy to use and the product that came out in the end tasted good for being your own vintage. It makes a great project for someone who has never tried to make wine...but likes to drink it. The turn-around is fairly quick for a Pinot Grigio; I was happy with the results." —Heidi

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $60.

14. Really cool takeout bowls so you can pretend that your freshly made stir fry was actually delivered to you.

Promising Review: "When we make Asian-inspired food at home ourselves, my husband always says he missed the novelty of eating out of the take-out container. These bowls are really cool looking, even when they aren't in use, and bring back a little bit of that take-out feeling. Good sturdy construction and nice details. I love that they come in a set of two — perfect for the two of us!" —Kay R

Get them from Uncommon Goods for $44.99.


17. A super cute jumpsuit to serve sexy looks at the bar and spend the rest of your check on vodka cranberries.

19. A pair of delicate pearl earrings to adorn your ears with some timeless elegance.

Promising Review: "These pearls are stunning. They have a beautiful luster, are perfectly matched, and are something that I will enjoy wearing for many years. They are everything you would want in an elegant pearl earring." —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $47.99. Available in white-gold.


20. An amazingly useful cupcake maker so burnt bottoms can be a thing of the past.

Promising Review: "This is awesome! My husband's co-worker had brought one in to work for a team-building day and he loved it so much, I ordered this that night. It came super quickly, and we had it plugged in and cooking as soon as we got it! The cupcakes turned out so perfectly; they are super smooth and evenly cooked. You have to fill the cups completely to get that perfect shape, and watch the time on them as they cook. We started with some carrot-raisin cupcakes and they were really delicious! I love that I can just make one or two without dirtying a whole baking tray or heating up the house, which is a huge bonus living in Florida!" —RobertsBrianna

Get it from Amazon for $38.66. Available in red, teal, and stainless steel.

21. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette to put some smoky-ass sultriness on the tops of your eyelids.

Promising Review: "I'll keep this short and sweet; It's richly pigmented, creamy, and so very blendable. It has a great fluffy and smudge dual-end brush inside. Every color is on point and trendy – there are so many possible combos for diff looks. It has both mattes and shimmers! This is now my favorite Naked palette, and is also a top three in my collection. It definitely lives up to the the hype." –hanluuu

Get it from Sephora for $54.

23. A gourmet dessert subscription box to give you tons and tons of orgasmic chocolate each month.

What You'll Get: Five unique artisan desserts each month, ranging from chocolate to pastries and cakes.

24. Qhemet Biologics Detangling Ghee with cocoa butter to keep your coils looking fluffy AF without any of the knots that might come with it., / Via qhemetbiologics

Promising Review: "This product has saved me so much detangling time. I use it on dry hair after wearing a twist out for days and it just melts my tangles. I can't do without it; I've been natural for four years and it has been one of my staple products from the start of my natural hair journey." —Winj

Get it from Sephora for $22.

26. A comfy pair of strappy gladiator sandals that you can walk in all fucking day without complaint.
