    Promising review: "As a quadriplegic, I have assisted showers and over 30 years I have been frozen and scalded dozens of times when they wheel me beneath the shower. This unit can be turned on and then be adjusted to green (warm) and I'm safe. I may ask to adjust to edge between orange and green to take hot pulsating shower for sore muscles and maybe relax chronic spasms. SO FAR IT IS GREAT!" โ€”Gary Jeurink

    Smoky Mountain has notes of verbena, valencia orange peel and neroli flower.

    Yellowstone gives off the aroma of fresh air, green melon and morning dew drops. What a dream!

    And Yosemite has notes of fresh air, wild water lilies and sweet heliotrope petals.

    Promising review: "I searched high and low while in Yosemite for a candle/oil/something that captured the scent of the valley. After returning home, I ordered these on a gamble, since there was nowhere nearby selling them. Iโ€™m glad I did! This candle is my new favorite scent and takes me back!" โ€”Kelly H.

    Get the Smoky Mountain, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, or Yosemite candle from Homesick Candles for $29.95 each.

    5. A LED dog collar so you can keep track of your best friend as they run around at night in the backyard or on your midnight walks around the neighborhood.


    This collar lasts up to eight hours, has three modes (on, strobe, and blink), and you can see it up to 350 yards away(!!).

    Promising review: "This collar is FANTASTIC. We live on 15 acres out in the boonies and our driveway is about a mile long so we have our dogs out in our yard loose. This collar has solved our problems and keeps my family's mind at ease when we let little Britt outside now!" โ€”Chelsi C.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.89 (available in ten colors and four sizes).

    6. A set of eight different light-up bathtub toys that'll turn on as soon as they touch the water. Magic!

    7. A set of electric light blocks to let your imagination roam free to create any structure that comes to mind. Then, when you're ready, make it come to life with light!

    8. A motion activated LED toilet bowl for when you're half-awake in the middle of the night and need to pee but you don't want to turn on the bright overhead lights from hell.


    It has 16 different color modes. You can pick just one or have them all play on a loop. Fun! There's also five different brightness settings so you can dim it to the level you'd like most.

    Promising review: "Calming, creepy, soothing, eerie, beautiful, functional, needed. Itโ€™s strangely satisfying to enter into the bathroom in the dead of night and see the brilliant blue light glowing from between the lid and the seat. And to lift the lid and be greeted by a welcoming portal of soft brilliant light to guide you to intended target; magic."โ€”3senough

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in 1-3 packs).

    9. A moon lamp so realistic, even Neil Armstrong would want to land on it.

    Promising review: "I have now bought these for all of my friends for when we are camping. It makes it easy to see in the cooler so that you are not pulling out ketchup when all you really want is a cold beverage."โ€”mtcatt

    Get it from Amazon for $9.08.

    13. A pizza night light so you can have a little slice of heaven in the corner of your bedroom.


    Promising review: "The subtle, sexy glow, that this pizza nightlight shines transcends space and time. Sure, it might make me hungry every time I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, but I find the pros to significantly outweigh that con." โ€”SqueegyBuckenheim

    14. A clip-on selfie ring light that'll light up your life AND your photos. Bring your selfie game to the next level.

    Promising review: "Love the rechargeable feature! The light is perfect, especially since there are three options! I use it on and off everyday for photos and lighting when I do my makeup. Charged it once and it hasn't need another charge for about a week now." โ€”AmazonCustomer

    Get it from Amazon $13.99.

    15. A Deathly Hallows projection light that'll bring joy into your life faster than you can say "Lumos!".


    Get it from Firebox for $24.99 (originally $37.99).

    16. A LED reading light you simply clip to your book so the pages can come to life, no matter what setting you're in.

    This one is great because it's rechargeable and lightweight! Nothing worse than being in the middle of a REALLY intense chapter and your book light falls over onto your page and scares the living daylight outta you.

    Promising review: "I just got it & charged it right away. It looks really nice & sleek. It definitely lights up both pages really well. Now I can read & not worry about having to put on my big lamp light to see the pages. When my room is completely dark & while my husband is sleeping I only need the light to be on the lowest light setting because that is bright enough for me & lights up both pages just fine."โ€”Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A set of whimsical string lights, because your eternal mood is rainbow.


    Get it from Anthropologie $20.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome purse light (and could be used in other small spaces). I have several different types, but what attracted me to this particular light is that is much flatter than my others. It can attach inside the space you need it for, it automatically turns on when I open my bag instead of having to be shaken. Really a great and bright light." โ€”M

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    19. A pair of friendship lamps so your BFF who lives too far away can know when you're thinking of them. Simply tap your lamp and theirs will change color no matter how far they are. <3


    Promising review: "My friend, who lives long distance, bought me this for my birthday. At first I thought nothing of it, but then we set it up the magic happened. It has a super nice design, very good quality. It definitely brings a smile to my face every time he presses his and mine lights up." โ€”Cyan Fish

    Get it from Uncommongoods for $85 ($170 for two).

    Shine bright little guy.
