    1. A French press because you need some warm coffee for those long nights in.,

    Promising Review: "Like most French press coffee makers, it makes great coffee. But unlike most French press coffee pots, this one is insulated. It keeps the coffee hot much longer to allow one pot to last a while, as this old man sits on the porch and ponders life on sunny mornings." –LHBY

    3. This floral oven mitt and pot holder to have you channeling your inner Pioneer Woman. Those chocolate sheet cakes will turn out so well, I believe in you!

    Promising Review: "If you are looking for a pretty oven mitt and pot holder set that has loops to hang, look no further. I appreciate that the pot holder has a short seam sewn toward the closed end, making a pocket. This allows it to be used almost as you would an oven mitt. It is a very nice detail that I've never had in another pot holder." –T. Petersen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

    4. Some comfortable penny loafers because honestly, high heels are such a hassle, and you're not about that life.

    Promising Review: "Very comfy shoes! I've worn them for up to nine hours where I am constantly walking back and forth on my feet, and they were still comfortable. They fit just right, and I can wear them with and without socks. The shoes also look great with both jeans and dresses." –Anonymous

    10. Trying to make some yummy brownies but afraid they'll stick? This silicone baking pan will make cool owls that will actually come out with their faces intact.

    Promising Review: "These make the cutest chocolates and ice cubes, just to name a couple things. Ice flips out of them easily and because the actual form for the owls is on the smaller side, it doesn't take a long time for the water to become ice. The silicone is just the right thickness and moves fluidly to expel whatever you have been forming." –JK
