    Review photo of the vinyl stickers

    Promising review: "Bought these for favors at my sons 10th birthday, Mandalorian/Grogu themed. We gave the kids reusable water bottles and let them pick stickers to put on their bottle. It was a hit. They had fun with the variety of stickers and they were easily applied. We have hand-washed (don’t recommend dishwasher) our son's gently for about a month and the stickers are just now starting to peel a little bit at the edges. Overall, it was a good activity for the kids and perfect for their take home gift." —Cynthia

    Price: $5.09

    3. A delicious blend of melatonin, L-theanine, chamomile, lemon balm, and lavender gummies that I take nightly to help me relax and unwind before bedtime. Not only do they taste great, they're stuffed with all-natural, highly effective ingredients that calm down your nervous system so your mind won't race a mile per minute as you drift off into dreamland.

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how well these worked. Sleeping pills and things to help me sleep haven’t been very helpful in the past. I don’t know what you guys created but...I’m a huge fan. Knocked me right out!" —Austin

    Promising review: "These shorts are incredible! I usually buy more expensive brands and I thought I would give these a try. They feel like $50 shorts! The fabric feels very soft and the fit is great. Do not waste your money on expensive shorts !!! I definitely want these in every color!!! Very comfortable!" —Lilli

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 32 colors)

    Reviewer's picture of the coasters in leopard print

    Promising review: "They fit perfectly in my car cup holders and they’re absorbent. So when they get too wet and gross you just toss them in the wash. I throw mine in a the dishwasher." —Jessica

    Price: $2.99+ (available in 15 colors)

    6. An easy electric egg poacher that cooks up to seven consistently perfect eggs in soft, medium, or hard-boiled firmness. The compact design fits in even the smallest of kitchen spaces and each part is dishwasher safe. How egg-cellent.

    Promising review: "This little thing is great! Easy, fast and perfect eggs. They peeled perfectly and the yolk wasn’t dry. Love this little appliance." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $14.99+

    7. An expert pet de-shedding brush made to last forever and always. Behold its sturdy, easy-to-grip handle that'll remove tons of excess fur within minutes, saving you vital time and money at the groomer's, whether you've got a fuzzy cat or a German "shedder" dog.

    Review photo of dog after the pet de-shedding brush

    Promising review: "This comb is a godsend. I have a long-haired cat that sheds like it's his job, and a short-haired cat that has wires for hair and it works perfectly on both. I've never gotten so much hair off the cats! So don't waste time buying one that says only for long hair and one only for short hair, this comb works for both." —Armida

    Price: $15.97

    8. A comfy casual twist knit tunic top that pairs perfectly with just about anything you've got in your closet, be it your fave pair of jeans, high-waisted shorts, or even a pleather skirt. Add a chic jacket in cooler weather or dress it down with sneakers or flip-flops.

    Reviewer wearing the wine red long-sleeve top

    Promising review: "This shirt was more than I could imagine, I bought it on a whim because I needed a beige shirt for a family photo shoot. I bought the medium based on other reviews and the sizing chart. I was right the border of small and medium but because I was scared of shrinking and would possibly use it for photos I aired on the side of caution and got the larger size. This shirt did not shrink and it laundered easily with like colors and dried on low. It felt soft, it was of nice weight and thickness, and it looked great. I could have went down a size but I preferred a slightly looser fit for the photos. I would recommend this shirt." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $17.99+ (available in sizes S–3X, 40 colors, and both short and long-sleeve styles)

    9. A large leakproof 1-gallon motivational water bottle to help ensure you stay hydrated with H20 from sunrise to sunset, all the while giving you an instant mood boost on the hour.

    Reviewer holding the extra large water bottle with multiple reminders to drink water

    Promising review: "This gallon-sized water bottle is made to look just like a traditional water bottle but scaled up. It has a handle and is designed more like a milk jug. The bottle is more attractive with the fading colors and streamlined grips. The plastic body also has a velvety texture that feels nice to hold. The plastic has a little flexibility so it is not brittle and seems durable." —Lea

    Price: $21.99+ (available in 11 colors)

    10. An adorable pink gaming headset with removable cat ears including noise-canceling and a retractable flexible microphone so you can live your full Ariana Grande fantasy while streaming on Twitch (or just taking cute selfies mid-game).

    Reviewer wearing the kitty-eared headset

    Promising review: "It can be said that the wearing comfort is very good. The earphone is light and comfortable to wear, and the full package earmuff does not feel oppressive. In terms of sound quality and sound effect, if it is used as a daily game, the sound field and positioning are commendable, and the listening and debating position is more than enough. The earphone has good vibration function, which makes it more realistic to watch a movie; when listening to music, the three frequencies are balanced. Generally speaking, as an e-sports headset, all aspects of performance are good, multi-channel, vibration, breathing lights are basically available, which can meet the needs of daily applications and games." —Alison

    Price: $44.99

    11. A retro-style pair of oversized round mirrored sunglasses so sleek and stylish they'll have everyone asking: "where did you get those??"

    Promising review: "Love these glasses! Amazing quality for the money. I used to spend soo much money on sunglasses but it’s brands like this that made me change my shopping habits and have saved me so much money! I love the shape of these glasses and the darkness of the tortoise shell pattern; super stylish and can be dressed up or down. I love that these aren’t 'thick' on your face. Highly recommend!" —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $14.99 (available in nine colors)

    12. A stunning 24'' Samsung professional panel computer monitor that delivers crisp images with wideview angles and comes with a fully adjustable stand and plenty of flexible connectivity options including HDMI and VGA.

    Reviewer using the monitor as an extra screen while also using their laptop, with five-star caption "perfect for online schooling"

    Promising review: "Love this monitor, just needed something for school with everything being online and this fits all my needs. Easy to set-up and the screen is bright. If you need a monitor for a dual-screen use, this is great." —Haley

    Price: $114.99

    13. A luxurious exfoliating body brush set to prevent and banish razor bumps and ingrown hairs for *good.* Time to toss out all those overpriced soaps and creams that only irritate your skin and say hello to ultimate smoothness.

    Review photo of the body brush set

    Promising review: "I cannot believe I waited so long to buy this! I was only in the market for the body brush, but grabbed this set because it also has the small facial brushes. My skin has never been smoother! The facial brushes are so delicate that you can’t really feel that it’s exfoliating, but my skin has never been softer, or felt cleaner. And the body brush is just as amazing. It’s cleared up the unsightly bumps I had due to ingrown hairs, and there was zero pain involved. This is a great set, the price is perfect. I definitely recommend it." —Kristen

    Price: $13.97

    14. A very handy magnetic microwave splatter cover guard because really, is there anything worse than heating up delish leftovers only for half of them to accidentally end up all over the machine's walls? Dishwasher-safe, this baby can be safely used for up to nine minutes while defrosting or cooking.

    The cover guard

    Promising review: "We've been using paper towels or additional paper plates to cover our food for warming up in the microwave. I ordered these hoping they would work as I hoped and prevent splatters in our microwave. The guards covers our food perfectly and fits right within our glass turntable, so there is no movement of the guard when the turntable is moving (every microwave is different so not sure everyone would get the same results). I like the finger grips when putting them on and taking them off. Great design!! I truly am TOTALLY pleased with these and would highly suggest ordering!!" —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $9.99

    15. A long-lasting anti-chafe balm you can easily apply to your inner thighs, around your bra line, or wherever you skin is most sensitive to rubbing. The weather may be growing warmer, but that doesn't mean you have to have sweaty, uncomfortable skin, especially after a long hike or run (ugh, the worst).

    Model using the anti-chafe balm

    Promising review: "I bought this for an upcoming trip to South Korea this past July. Knowing it would be humid I wanted to ensure I would NOT suffer, so I tried it out a few days before my trip around the house and loved it! I loved it even more when I was actually in Seoul! It did exactly what it says! Moisturizes and protects my skin. DEFINITELY recommend this! Best part is? Unlike powders or deodorants, it doesn't leave a single mark on your clothing. Not a one!!" —Sarah

    Price: $7.99+ (available in three pack sizes)

    16. A genius nontoxic silicone clip-on colander strainer suitable for a variety of pot sizes that saves you big on space and time while cooking up all your fave meals.

    Promising review: "Easy to use, great quality strainer. Lovely green color, easy to wash and folds up to be compact enough to store anywhere. The clips are strong but wrapped in silicone so your pots/pans will not be damaged. Straining pasta and washing fruit is now less of a chore. Very happy with this product!" —Heather

    Price: $12.99

    17. A lightweight cordless Dyson vacuum cleaner with powerful suction and a hygienic emptying bin so there's no need to get your hands on all that dirt and dust you just picked up. You WILL feel like cleaning world champion using this, and no more getting tangled on all those pesky cords.,

    Promising review: "Awesome vacuum. Sweet spot for me price wise. All-around this seems to be the best priced model value wise. I was skeptical and researched quite awhile before deciding. This thing is soooo convenient. My apartment is much cleaner now just because I can just grab this thing and fly over my floors rather than hauling out the vacuum cleaner and having to plug it in three different places because the cord doesn't reach. The swivel is just genius." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $269

    18. A set of six magnetic double-sided stainless steel measuring spoons truly a net *positive* for keeping your kitchen drawer neat and free of clutter. Never worry about losing that one pesky runaway spoon again.


    Promising review: "These spoons have form and function. A clean, minimalist look in stainless steal. A compact design that keeps them organized and easy to find in my messy kitchen accessory drawer. Easy-to-use as you don't have to constantly hold back the other spoons like with the spoons-on-a-ring design. The dual side for dry and liquid is very helpful, I make a powdered drink every day and this has made it a lot easier. Sometimes it's the little things that really make a difference." —Skan

    Price: $13.97+ (available in four colors)

    19. A set of two hotel-quality cooling gel pillows great for side, back, and stomach sleepers alike. These beauties are allergy-friendly and expertly tailored for maximum sleep comfort.

    Reviewer's picture of the fluffy pillow with five-star caption "helped with neck pain"

    Promising review: " The pillow holds its shape and supports your head while being soft and comfy. At night, I roll around about as much as a pig in mud and this pillow works in every position. I have also noticed I sleep much better throughout the night; I am usually up by 8:30 a.m. on the weekends but the first night I slept with this, I was dead to the world until 10 a.m.! I thought the clock was wrong for sure, but no, just a damn good pillow." —Jessica

    Price: $39.99+ (available in two sizes)

    20. A high-pressure shower head that's angle-adjustable so your time spent washing off will feel just as cleansing and relaxing as a dip in a tropical waterfall. Ahhh...

    The shower head

    Promising review: "I just moved to the next to top floor of an apartment building and the water pressure in the shower stinks. Showers are very important to me, and standing under a strong water stream is one of the best places for me to think. So I needed a new shower head immediately. It's like magic. This tiny, weightless thing increased the shower flow to a level that is more than satisfactory for my needs. It gets me clean and is strong enough for me to enter my pseudo-meditative state. Thank you, WASSA, for the first good shower I had in this new apartment!" —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $19.97

    21. An aluminum four-port USB adapter with a built-in smart chip and sturdy extension cord to help tidy up your workspace and keep all your data ultra-organized. It easily connects to any device whether it's a keyboard, speaker, Macbook or PC, and best of all, there's no extra driver required.

    Review photo of the grey four-port USB adapter

    Promising review: "My new surface dock didn't have enough USB ports and this little uni USB hub fixed my problem. It's nice and small so it doesn't take up a lot of real estate on your desk. It's very durable, looks nice and the braided cord is very sturdy. There is enough room to plug all my USB accessories into it. works well. I highly recommend this USB hub." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $11.89+ (originally $19.99+, available in two colors)

    22. A pack of Bioré pore-unclogging deep cleansing strips for instant blackhead removal on your nose and face. Get a deep clean facial without paying spa prices in just 10 minutes and be ready to feel purified.

    Reviewer's picture of their strip with blackheads all over it

    Promising review: "If you follow the instructions to a tee and make sure everything is smoothed down, including no bubbles before drying, they truly work. It’s important to follow this up with a good skin care routine to keep blackheads from coming back as fast. I do the pore strips once a week and wash and moisturize my face two, three times daily." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $11.54

    23. A plush and portable air mattress with a built-in pump so when it's safe to start having guests over again, they'll be tempted to write a positive Yelp review about the luxurious accommodations you provided for them overnight.

    Review photo of the black air mattress

    Promising review: "If I could give this 6 stars I would. The kids love it and it is very comfortable. We have guests over often and they will enjoy this air mattress as well. We have a sizable tent so this will also be incredible for travel and camping trips. The air mattress packs nicely into the carrying bag. I have NEVER had an air mattress with an auto-inflatable mechanism, so this was a piece of cake. It blew up fast." —Erik

    Price: $89.95+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

    24. A three-sided surge protector power strip with a whopping 18 outlets and a 6-foot extension power cord for smart charging, maximum speed, and truly the most energy efficient home office of all time.

    The power strip

    Promising review: "Very solid product. Love the design which provides very flexible options for my garage usages. Very good build quality, super heavy duty extension cable. Great value for the price, will buy again!" —JW

    Price: $25.97

    25. A lightweight, breathable baby carrier sling crafted from soft, high-quality material so new parents can keep their little ones relaxed and wrapped around them securely throughout the day.

    Model wearing the baby carrier sling

    Promising review: "The material is so soft. I have a popular brand wrap that I don't care for, the material is too hard to work with. This wrap material makes it so much easier to use. I love the color too." —Megan

    Price: $15.99

    26. A six-pack of moisture-wicked compression socks great for running, hiking, nursing, and all manner of long days spent on your feet. Plus they come in a wide selection of adorable prints and colors, so there's truly something for everyone.

    Reviewer wearing the socks with five-star caption "amazing for preggos"

    Promising review: "I love these socks. I am 35 and work in a fast paced factory 10+ hours a day, five to six days a week. My feet used to be so swollen, they hurt just to walk and once I went home, wherever I landed is where I stayed until morning. I was told compression socks help with feet swelling. I was skeptical, but bought a pack. I am amazed at the difference they make for me while at work and the fact that I can still walk when I get home. I have since recommended them to individuals that I work with and have made four separate orders for some coworkers who are not computer-savvy. These socks are the best!" —Jennifer

    Price: $18.99+ (available in two sizes and 30 colors)

    27. A pair of compact high-powered binoculars providing a high definition image at up to 1,000 yards. Whether you're out bird-watching or enjoying a baseball game, this baby gives you amazingly clear detail so cool it's like having magic eyes.

    Review photo of the compact high-powered binoculars

    Promising review: "I've been hiking a lot recently, and after achieving the heights I realized I wanted a little closer inspection of the city below. Didn't want to spend too much, just have a little portable zoom ability. These binoculars had decent ratings and the price was right, so I went for it. Very good value! Each eyepiece is adjustable, which you don't appreciate until one of your contact lenses becomes too dry and pops out. You can close each eye and adjust until you have perfect vision in both, then adjust the focus on top for the entire thing, and viola! Crisp and clear imagery, close but not too close. I dropped these on the trail once removing them from the backpack and they are still fine, so I suppose the manufacturing is solid. Five stars, would purchase again." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $25.99

    28. An out-of-this world at-home planetarium star projector that will turn any ordinary room into a mind-bending adventure through the galaxy. Who needs to travel when you can bring the whole universe home to you?


    Promising review: "My husband promised our daughter stars and he delivered in a big way with this thing. It’s so calming, beautiful, and realistic. You can set a timer so it’s not on all night. Worth the money. 10/10 would buy again." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $239
