    "We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication."

    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 set of different-sized DIY bath bomb molds so you can mix together your favorite essential oils and scents for your best bath yet.

    Promising review: "These molds are great! I've only used the smaller two but plan on using the larger one soon. I am a first time bath bomb maker and this product made it very easy!" —Amanda De La Rosa

    Price: $8.99 (for a set of six)

    2. A food spiralizer attachment for your Kitchenaid that will peel, core, and slice your food.

    The attachment is dishwasher safe and is designed with four different blade options that fine spiral, medium spiral, slice, and peel for the best results.

    Promising review: "There are cheaper options out there for spiralizers, but you definitely pay for what you get. Pay once, cry once, and you'll have a serious Kitchenaid appliance that'll last for years and be guaranteed as part of Kitchenaid's incredible warranty and customer service. This is one of those instances where holding out for quality is well rewarded." —Julia and Erik

    Price: $79.99

    3. A pack of 16 AA rechargeable batteries. It's a great time to stock up on batteries for the incoming gifts this holiday, and these are better for the environment!

    Promising review: "The joke in our family is that we consume a loaf of bread a lot slower than a dozen batteries. With the TV headsets, gaming controllers, remotes, and a whole lot of other gadgets around the house we are a battery hungry family. My wife thought this is a much cleaner option compared to dumping chemical ridden dry cells in our trash can. We have chargers literally in all rooms. So it is all sorted and divided amongst three battery hogers in the family" —AP

    Price: $22.99

    4. A poker chip set with professional-looking chips in four colors, two decks of standard playing cards, and a briefcase to store it all in.

    Promising review: "These chips have a nice, quality feel to them. That may sound silly, but I wanted to avoid the cheap plastic-y kind. These feel solid, the case is nice to have to keep them organized, and its not a pain to try to get them back in the right spots when you are done using them " —CSSW

    Price: $39.99

    5. An infrared digital thermometer FDA approved for all ages — it will come in handy this flu season. If there is a fever it turns red and if not, it remains green.

    Promising review: "This is the best thermometer for such a reasonable price. I tested this on all of my daughters, husband and myself, and got clear and consistent results no matter whether I used it within the ear, or on the forehead. Consistency was the key! You can also easily get your past results (up to the past 20) so that you can keep a log on hand in case you need it for informational purposes. This thermometer is super quick and very effective!" —Jay

    Price: $29.99

    6. A rechargeable electric toothbrush designed to target buildup by removing up to six times more plaque than a manual toothbrush.

    Philips Sonicare

    It also has a built-in two minute "Smartimer," which is the most recommended brushing time by dentists.

    Promising review: "I have been using Sonicare for many years. In my personal opinion Philips toothbrushes are far more superior to Oral-b when it comes to plaque removal. I highly recommend this unit over more expensive models because it does the same good job at half the price." —Moon

    Price: $39.95

    7. A three-pack of reversible holiday wrapping paper just in time for gifting season.

    Promising review: "Love the chevron and stripes on the reverse side. Cute and durable enough to handle wrapping without being wrinkled!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $8.74 Available in 15 varieties.

    8. A hemp seed oil lotion with a sweet pineapple and honey melon scent.

    Promising review: "Hempz makes the BEST lotion and almost all of them smell so good. What I like best is it does not leave that greasy feeling behind. Your skin literally soaks this stuff up! This is all I use now." —Kevin and Shannon

    Price: $9.60

    9. A set of four labeled cutting boards that'll help remind you which food to cut on which surface.

    Promising review: "These are a heavier, sturdier plastic, providing more counter protection than my previous mats. They are flexible enough to pick up and dump chopped food into bowl or pan. I like the textured backing, keeping the mat in place. " —MysteryLover


    10. A children's book called, Have You Filled A Bucket Today?, by Carol McCloud. It's all about kindness, positive behavior, and optimistic goal setting.

    Promising review: "My kids love this book and ask to read it all the time. It helps promote kindness to others and examples of what you can do to be kind. I actually had a mother from my daughter's pre-k class text me on how sweet my daughter was because she showed her daughter an act of kindness. It was all from this book. I highly recommend it." —Rebecca MacDonald

    Price: $5.94

    11. A DNA testing kit ideal for anyone who is curious about their ancestry and carrier status.

    Promising review: "After finding out my DNA results, I bought this kit for my mother, grandmother, and my fiancé. This is probably one of the neatest experiences I have ever been apart of. The kit came in super fast and the instructions were thorough. I am British, Irish, French, German, Scandinavian, Italian, Ashkenazi Jewish, South Asian, West African, and Middle Eastern/North African. TALK ABOUT A MELTING POT! :)" —Tori Griggs

    Price: $69

    12. A Lady Antebellum Christmas album called On This Winter's Night that will get you into get you in the mood for the holidays!

    Promising review: "I do not like a lot of the newer Christmas music. However, this CD is my new favorite. They have done an amazing job combining the old songs with some new ones, and it's the perfect mix for your Christmas party or for decorating your tree. It's my #1 in my collection and I'm not sure that I can wait until next year to listen to it again." — DHMSHOP

    Price: $6.60

    13. A wireless karaoke microphone you'll probably annoy the whole family with when you constantly break out into song. #SorryNotSorry

    Not only is it wireless but it also has bluetooth connection, built-in speakers, and is compatible with all iOS, Android, smartphone, or PC devices.

    Promising review: "So much fun. My kids are literally fighting over who gets to sing next. It has a built-in speaker that plays your songs through Bluetooth. Lots of different adjustments to make you sound better lol. Really loud. I am happy it comes with a case too." —Heather

    Price: $19.97

    14. A 40-pack of hand warmers to keep you nice and toasty all winter long with up to ten hours of heat per pack.

    Promising review: "I just finished using the last of the pack last week. These have a fairly long shelf life; I bought mine in 2014 and they expired in May 2017. I've used them in 20 degree weather and they kept my hands super warm! I just left them in my pockets and when my hands were too cold it provided some extra warmth. Taken these on many trips with friends and husband and we all loved it." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $24.81

    15. An assortment of yarn in 40 different colors for anyone who wants to get into knitting or crochet in the new year.

    Promising review: "This is a great set if you're a beginner to crochet like me. The skeins are just the right size for smaller, simpler projects, and the three e-books that come with it are very handy & helpful. I'd definitely recommend this if you want to teach yourself or someone else how to start crocheting." —Melanie Nazelrod

    Price: $14.97

    16. A pair of fuzzy holiday socks you'll never want to take off this winter.

    Promising review: "They make me look like one of the 'Who' people from the Grinch, but these are the comfiest things that I have ever put on my feet. I never want to take them off. The inside is SO soft and fluffy!" —PCR

    Price: $10.99

    17. An inverted umbrella designed to close from the inside out so you stay dry and the wind won't break your only source of protection from the rain.

    Promising review: "Love it. Wish I discovered these a long time ago. Umbrella is a generous size, seems well made, really nice and lets you get in and out of the car dry!" —nicole landry

    Price: $19.99

    18. A durable, oversized canvas travel bag that'll last you for years.

    Promising review: "I absolutely cannot say enough good about this bag! If you have any reservations what-so-ever about whether it is worth the money, I promise you, it most definitely is! The bag itself is a soft canvas and it is trimmed out with top quality genuine leather. Everything trimmed in leather is held securely in place with nice thick rivets. All of the buckles and clasps are not only attractive, but also thick and sturdy and the shoulder strap is made with really thick material and is about two inches wide. I mean, there is no way this strap is breaking! This bag is really built to last!" —Scott Ziegler

    Price: $49.99
