    1. These vinyl stickers you can personalize with a photo of the love of your life, aka your sweet, loveable pet. Nothing makes you happier than seeing their face, and now you actually can no matter where you are.


    You'll need to upload a clear photo of your pet (or your face, or your favorite celebrity's face) when you add this order to your cart.

    Promising review: "These stickers are just perfect in every way. I add them to gifts from our pets to other people, as well as on thank you cards for people who have taken care of them from time to time. I loved how easy it was to upload the picture — just put the face you want in the area they ask for, and they take care of the rest! The image is trimmed and reproduced faithfully, and the stickers are very high quality. I'll definitely be buying more for some gifts!" —Sandra Karolus

    Get a pack of 32 stickers from Amazon for $17.99 (browse the My Sticker Face shop page for more styles).

    2. A gorgeous passport holder that might inspire you to book yourself a well-deserved getaway, even if it's just for a short while.

    3. This mini cast-iron skillet because nothing will fill you with a little joy quite like a little skillet brownie.,

    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." —Hina Baig

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

    4. A screaming goat figurine to make you and all your friends giggle endlessly because the button-induced "ahhh!" is actually really adorable, but also totally representative of how January made us all feel.


    And it comes with an illustrated booklet all about goats (AWWW).

    Promising review: "This little piece of screaming plastic has created an excellent outlet for resolving frustrations in our home. Every time a conflict or struggle arises we push the little goat, get a gratifying screech, chuckle and move on throughout our day. No regrets on purchasing this. When you get one, get four or five because you're going to want to share with family and friends." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    5. This out-of-this-world sticker so you'll always be reminded that no matter how tough things get, you're still otterly awesome.


    The sticker is actually dishwasher safe so you can stick it on a water bottle, too!

    Promising review: "The sticker came exactly as pictured. I love the cute little otter and the quirky pun! I’m giving this to my friend and I know she’ll love it." —Ali

    7. These gorgeous pearl and acrylic hair clips because you should never underestimate the powers of an effortlessly adorable 'do. At least you'll be able to tackle a bad day looking too cute for words.


    Promising review: "I love these cute clips on my daughter. I have been ordering hair clips from Amazon for the past couple of weeks for our upcoming vacation and have to say that these are the best. The grip of the hair clip while holding the hair is very strong — this helped a lot in keeping the hair in place with a hyperactive toddler. They come in various designs, which perfectly goes with her formal and casual outfits. I will buy more to give as gifts." —SD1624

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $8.99.

    8. A pack of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks so you can give yourself some much-needed R&R after all the twists and turns of January.


    Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen a SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" —Shaun

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. And this croissant-shaped stress ball you can keep on hand for a quick squeeze when you feel anxiety or restlessness creeping up on you.

    Get it from for $8.95.

    10. These dino-mite tea infusers that'll help you brew yourself a soothing cup of tea with a huge smile on your face because they're just so dang cute.

    Promising review: "The tea infuser set is incredibly cute and functional. The silicone material gives it a good enough structure and makes it easy to empty and clean. The size is just right for smaller to normal size cups/mugs and tall enough to peep out of larger vessels as well. Its feet allow it to stand with no support and with tea inside it stays at the bottom of the cup/mug infusing your tea. It comes in a nice set of two, allowing me to use one for myself and to give one to a co-worker and liven up the office snack area. I would highly recommend this even over other cute/novelty tea steepers as this is a one-size-fits-all and you don't have to worry about your mug/cup size." —Haren

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $12.95.

    11. A pretty and sleek water bottle to remind you to stay hydrated and healthy — you'd be surprised by how much more energized and focused you can feel when you drink an adequate amount of water.

    It comes with a convenient carrying strap, a fruit infuser, and a sturdy snap-down lid to prevent any spillage.

    Promising review: "I came across this water bottle on a recommendation from a friend, because I wanted to improve the consistency and amount of my water intake. I never would have thought that a water bottle could make such a big impact on how well I keep myself hydrated, but this one truly does. In the short few weeks I've owned this bottle, my water consumption has doubled, more or less consistently. I am grateful I found the H20Coach! Highly recommend!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in four colors).

    12. These motivational cards designed to help you self-reflect, relax, meditate, and more so you can de-clutter your mind and re-gain your focus.

    They're color-coded and have affirmations, thoughtful questions, and happy to-do's printed on them, all meant to help you feel your best. The deck also includes a little booklet with instructions on how to use the cards for self-care (of course they're good for a game of poker, too).

    Get it from for $14.

    13. A cuuuuute puppy plushie that you can cuddle with any time you're feeling a little sad. If you don't yet have a pup of your own, at least having this smiley little snuggle buddy can lift your spirits., Amazon

    Promising review: "It looked exactly like the picture. It is SO soft and great quality. My mom and my sister loved mine so much, I'm getting them one for Christmas. Would DEFINITELY buy!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in two sizes and four designs).

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in two colors).

    16. Or a curtain of twinkle lights that'll give your room the most romantically dim glow — aka, the perfect glow for resting and reading and just chilling by yourself.

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights, in particular, are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    17. These handcrafted, moisturizing bath bombs made with natural ingredients because sometimes the cure to a rough time is a relaxing soak and a little alone time.,

    Promising review: "After receiving the first box as a gift, I had to order more. I am a true bath person and have tried bath products across the globe. I can honestly say that these are the absolute best bath bombs I have ever used! The fragrance is incredible and my skin is left soft, not oily. Here comes the part that blew me away: No residue or ring left in my tub! One more thing, the price allows me to order more and give as gifts!" —Pamela

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $26.80.

    18. A magnetic meal-planning pad to help you feel more in control of what you put in your body. Personally, I've noticed that when I plan my meals in advance, I make more nutritious meals and feel more energized versus leaving my eating decisions to the last minute and ending up with take-out three days in a row.


    The notepad is separated into two perforated sections: One section is for planning meals for each day of the week and the other is for writing down your shopping list.

    Promising review: "I love this meal planner and shopping list! In my house, it was constantly 'what do you want to eat,' 'what do we have,' blah blah, etc. Now, I can lay out the week's meals and get my shopping list prepared so I make sure I don't miss anything at the grocery store. The magnet on the back is strong and holds it to the fridge perfectly, even with the door opening and closing constantly. The perforation is good and doesn't stray off into the paper like some cheaper papers do. Will be buying again when my current one gets low." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    19. This satin sleep mask that'll feel ultra smooth against your face and help block out any light that may keep you tossing and turning at night. So you might actually sleep through the night for once, and may even wake up feeling refreshed.

    Get it from for $18.95 (available in six designs).

    AnthemStickerCompany / Etsy

    22. A cereal bowl candle (it actually smells like a bowl of Froot Loops!!!) that'll never fail to put a smile on your face every time you look at it because it's just one of the many ways you can light the way toward a more joyful month.


    I bought this as a gift for my friend who's OBSESSED with cereal and would eat it for every meal if he could, and he LOVED this. It smells exactly like Froot Loops cereal, and you can actually use the bowl and spoon once the wax is all melted. He thought it was so cool-looking that he said he might not even light the candle! Either way, it'd still make great decor for a room.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

Once you learn how to form the letters, you can practice with the book's nine hand-lettered projects.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this book. So easy to follow along and practice. Love that there's a sample for you to trace and space to practice right after. Someone mentioned half the book is blank pages but in reality, it's space to practice and I actually like it. I like to compare my handwriting side by side with the example." —Lourdes
