    20 Really Small Things That'll Help Improve Your Mood In A Big Way

    Some of the most adorable things in life come in small packages.

    1. This sterling silver wave-shaped ring that'll bring you instant peace with just one glance as you're reminded of the ocean. It's sure to ~make waves~ in your heart.

    I used to be really obsessed with rings, but have stopped wearing anything but my high school class ring in recent years because I spend a lot of money on products that look cute at first but wind up tarnishing in just a week's time. I came across this ring on Amazon and immediately fell in love with its simplicity and symbolism (riding the wave of life, and all that jazz). I've worn it every day for the last month and haven't seen any signs of tarnish yet β€” I even keep it on when I wash my hands, and the silver tone doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I think this one's a win in my book!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in sizes 2–13 and in a variety of finishes).

    2. An edamame keychain I dare you to try and NOT squeeze with joy for hours on end. You'll have so much fun that you'll wonder where these have bean all your life.


    Promising review: "These are such a cute and funny little fidget type toy. I have been looking for an excuse to buy some for almost a year since I first found out they existed. Luckily, I needed an add-on and this was it. There are three beans tucked inside each pod. It's made of like a silicone-like rubber, and when you give it a squeeze, one of the little beans pops out and smiles at you! When you let go, the bean hides back inside the pod. It's seemingly very well constructed for the cheap little fidget toy that it is. You would have to deliberately grab a bean to rip it out. They make a great small gift. My two daughters loved these little surprises when they arrived." β€”Lanni

    3. This mini cast-iron skillet because it's perfect for quickly whipping yourself up a sweet treat after you've had a rough day. Single-serve cookies, pies, and cakes are just a skillet away.,

    The skillet is already seasoned with vegetable oil, but reviewers recommend giving it one more good seasoning for best results.

    Promising review: "I miscalculated how big (or I should say TINY) the 3.5" skillet will be. I was so surprised it arrived in a regular yellow envelope and when I took it out, I realized why. IT IS TINY and SO CUTE!! I kept it and made a pizookie in it to test, and it works awesome. I'll use it for making and heating tiny things and because it's so adorable." β€”Hina Baig

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in eight sizes).

    4. A set of tiny tealight candles so you can set the mood for a nice, cozy afternoon inside. The warm glow from the candles will immediately brighten your mood.


    Promising review: "This is my FOURTH box from ZionJudaica. I go through a lot of tea candles. Candles are one of my nightly indulgence rituals. Having tried numerous providers of tea candles, the tea candles from ZJ are simply the best. Out of 375 candles, I have yet to experience a dud. I hope to be ordering these tea candles for the next 20 years." β€”MarkDS

    Get a pack of 25 from Amazon for $5.99+ (also available in packs of 120 and 200).

    5. Orrrrr, these tiny succulent-shaped tealight candles to help light the way no matter what prickly situation the day throws at you.


    Promising review: "These are so cute and the gift box adds a nice touch. I used them to fill a pair of five-inch glass globe terrariums. Since there is not enough sunlight in my dark living room, I'm unable to successfully grow succulents. These candles are a nice replacement, and I think they add a more personal touch than fake plastic succulents since they are actually useful." β€”Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $7.55+ (available in four different variety packs).

    6. These totes adorbs mini animal plushies you just can't help but smile at. You can also attach them to a keychain for giddy grins on the go.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Literally the best purchase I’ve ever made at UO. I named him squiggles and he is kinda my best friend. He goes on hikes with me, successfully annoys my brother and is the perfect companion for me. Oh also he is the panda." β€”Denvercolorado

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $6 each (available in 11 animals).

    7. Tiny hand puppets that'll take you from feeling just OK to laughing on the floor when you surprise your friends and family with this little gag.


    Promising review: "These tiny hands are hilarious! They are so fun to pull out quietly at a party and surprise my friends with the 'circle game' when they least suspect it. The hands fit just right on my finger. They actually have very nice detail and the quality is surprisingly polished for a fun gag gift item like this! I was pleasantly surprised. The pack comes with five hands and is great to bring to parties, festivals, and shows so I can give them away to those that enjoy them as much as I do. I plan to buy a couple more packs for the upcoming festival season. I suspect a lot of people will be getting the 'circle' from meπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ this summer πŸ˜‚" β€”J C

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. Itty, bitty charging cable animals because you'll smile from ear to ear when you realize how effective they are at protecting your cables from fraying. Your heart just might grow three sizes today.

    Promising review: "My five-year-old has a tendency to fiddle with the cable charging the iPad while playing with it, and these little critters are a fabulously whimsical way to keep the cable from breaking at the connection point. They work perfectly on the standard iPhone and Android cables. They are a tight fit on the braided cables and the end connector won't fit all the way into the animal's mouth, but they still do the job of protecting the connection point between the cable and the plug." β€”Rachel E. Witt

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $9.98.

    9. This mini avocado heating pad that's ready to relieve the cramps and pains that have you feeling down in the dumps. Once you pop it in the microwave, the heat will help soothe your pain and the lavender scent will lift your spirits.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I purchased the avocado pad because I was looking for something to comfort me while having cramps, and this works perfectly. It's not too small, but not too big, and it molds to whatever part of your body you place it on. It smells super nice and it really helps me out. I would definitely buy other pads!" β€”taj3

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $14 (available in six designs).

    10. Moon-shaped earrings so you can light up the night with a little lunar bling. They may be tiny but you'll feel majorly gorgeous!


    The earrings are made of brass and have black cubic zirconia beads throughout.

    Promising review: "These earrings look very nice. I was afraid they would look too much like costume jewelry, but they do not. The color of the metal looks exactly like the description and the stones look very real. I get many compliments on them. They're definitely worth the small amount you pay." β€”L. Kozak

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50 (available in gold, white gold, and rose gold).

    11. A deck of smaller-than-average tarot cards you can take anywhere, because you never know when you'll be in the mood for an impromptu reading. One thing's for certain: your happiness is written in the cards!

    Promising review: "I really love this deck! The mini size fits in my hand perfectly. The quality of the cards is great too. It has a silky matte finish and pretty gold edges. They also shuffle nicely. I like the clean artwork and simplicity of the design. I have dozens of decks and this became one of my favorites right away. A more detailed guidebook would have been cool, but it’s basically your traditional RWS style deck. Definitely a must for fellow deck collectors." β€”Joanna

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    12. These itsy, bitsy mason jar shooters that give you the right amount of liquid joy whether you're home alone on a Saturday binge-watching Netflix shows or hosting a night-in with your besties complete with bite-sized snacks and drinks.


    Promising review: "These little guys have big eye appeal. They fit squarely in your hand, so even when they sweat from an ice cube or two in your drink, you never feel like the glass is gonna slip from your hand. The 2-oz. capacity is perfect for a quick, two-fisted shot to get the party started. Do I sound happy, cuz I sure am! Who knew that glassware could put a smile on your face long before the liquor gets a chance to! I love these 'lil cuties, and I'll be inconsolable the day that any one of them should break. I'm thrilled and delighted with my purchase." β€”TimBoston

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $13.99.

    13. A too-pretty-for-words bow-shaped phone ring because it stabilizes your phone for selfies so well that you really will have a reason to smile!,

    Promising review: "This is THE best thing I have ordered for my phone. This simple little phone ring does so much. It serves as a phone holder for my car, a holder for my finger, and then some. I put it on the back of my plastic phone cover (sticks on very strong) and placed the plastic hook on the dash of my car. I now have something that holds my phone in my car while I drive. Now, in the last year, I have bought three phone holders for my car and all of them were a complete waste of money. On the other hand, this phone ring is stiff enough to hold my phone at an angle instead of laying it on a surface. Best money I spent!!! BTW, the fact that I took pictures, uploaded them, AND left feedback is a testament to my joy." β€”Austincoachk

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in four colors).

    14. This mini ladybug vacuum that might actually make cleaning fun for a change! Its minuscule size is perfect for sucking up the dust from hard-to-reach-areas so you might actually flip for joy when you see how clean your space becomes., Amazon

    Promising review: "I honestly don't know why I didn't buy this sooner!! I constantly find little crap that I miss when cleaning up and this little bugger saves the day every single time! Even my daughter loves using it β€” anything to get her to help with clean up gets an A+ from me! It's also super easy to clean out. I'm really pleased with this!!" β€”Jen

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    15. A set of clip-on phone camera lenses because you'll be less than $20 away from being your very own ~professional photographer~ β€” and nothing makes my fellow photo snobs happier than getting the perfect shot for Insta.


    The kit includes one star filter lens, one macro lens, a CPL mobile phone lens, a wide angle lens, and one fisheye lens, plus a clip that temporarily attaches them to your phone, and a carrying case.

    Promising review: "These lenses are great! I love to travel and take pictures, and these lenses are fabulous for trips and for everyday use. Since they are small, you can take them everywhere! They are easy to attach to your cell phone both ways so you can take selfies, too. I’m totally in love with them!" β€”Clau Gaitan

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    16. And, this tiny photo printer so you can actually hold a physical print of your ah-mazing photography. You could turn the prints into a collage, or do a relaxing scrapbook project.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This printer is small, cute, and light. The quality of the pictures is sharp and bright. This printer is great for scrapbooking or just keeping a book of inspirations." β€”sweetdee85

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $130 (available in three colors).

    17. A deck of super small UNO cards that are honestly just as fun as the full-size version β€” if not more!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This little UNO set is honestly the cutest thing ever! And not only are they super cute and fun because of their size, but they're also easy to fit practically anywhere! I love this card game, and will be buying more in the future for tiny, original gifts! 10/10 would definitely recommend!!" β€”taylortotlew

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $6.

    18. Or, if you're really looking for a trip down memory lane, this tiny Magic 8 ball that'll have you and your friends asking amusing questions all day long β€” Will I win the lottery this week? Does Greg actually have a crush on me??


    Promising review: "I collect Magic 8 balls, and this one is great! It's so tiny, but unlike other tiny Magic 8 balls, it is also functional! There are fewer answers than a regular-sized ball, but it's still adorable and super fun!" β€”Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    19. A set of tiny Kodama figurines to add a little positive energy to your garden. In Japanese folklore, the Kodama are spirits that inhabit trees, so you know your garden will be in good hands!


    Promising review: "LOVE THEM!!! They’re adorable, perfect little Kodamas!! I ordered two packs and will most likely be adding them to my succulent garden. They do seem quite fragile. And, they glow so beautifully when exposed to a light source for a few moments. I'm in love with these 'lil guys and will definitely recommend to Mononoke fans!" β€”O & C Gonzalez

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    20. And a tin of bacon bandages β€” let me repeat that: BACON. BANDAGES. β€” so you can basically heal your wounds with just one strip and a good laugh.

    Promising review: "These are hilarious. They are made of a very plastic-y plastic, not like your typical bandaid plastic. They aren't the most comfortable (especially if you're trying to wrap them around a finger, etc), but for basic cuts and scrapes, they work fine. The non-stick pad part is a completely acceptable material/texture and the bandaids themselves stick pretty well. Plus, they just crack me up, so I'm happy." β€”Jen

    Get it from Amazon for $6.25 (available in six designs).
