    1. An erasable pen for when you just can't decide between a pen or a pencil. Basically if the two had a baby, this is what their child would look like.

    Promising review: "Oh man, oh man, these are fantastic. I gave one to each of my family members last year for Christmas and they all loved them. Plus, it's August and they still work! I love that they erase just like if you were to erase with a pencil. There's still a slight mark of where it was erased, but it's basically GONE! YAAAS, NOW GO BUY DESE!" —Kanzadie

    Get a pack of seven from Amazon for $10.91.

    2. A mood ring so you never have to decide what mood you're in. Just let the ring tell you.,

    This dainty lil' ring will change between six colors, based on your mood: blue (happy), purple (inspired), green (relaxed), yellow (excited), orange (on edge), pink (love). It is made with a brass base and plated with 24k gold, 18k rose gold, or sterling silver.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful and simple ring. It is exactly what I was looking for! The colors change quickly and frequently, and the transitions are fun to watch. The size six is true to size. I usually wear a size five (and three quarters) on my ring finger, but this fits well on my middle finger." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in sizes 5–9 and rose gold, yellow gold, or sterling silver).

    3. Do something dice, to prepare you for the dreaded "idc you pick" text when making plans. Instead of panicking, just roll the dice to see what kind of night you're going to have. *Hopes for the cocktail every. single. time.*

    Uncommon Goods

    Each die is a different category (Exercise, Sights, Food, and Nightlife) to help you plan your next date night or wild adventure!

    Promising review: "These dice have been so much fun and so helpful when it comes to deciding or guiding decisions! My friends and I often want to go out and do something fun, but have a hard time deciding which direction to take. They are perfect for those of us who are indecisive!" —MegDogMom

    Get it from from Uncommon Goods for $12.

    4. Orrrr foodie dice, that will help you make THE hardest decision of all time (aka what to make for dinner) and potentially save marriages.


    There are five primary dice (protein, cooking method, grain/carb, herb, bonus ingredient) and four seasonal veggie dice. The dice are vegetarian and vegan-friendly, as the protein die includes both meat and vegetarian options on each side. Now go get cookin'!

    Promising review: "Purchasing these was the BEST decision ever! My husband and I are both adventurous eaters but highly indecisive. On the nights when we just can't make a decision, we let the dice decide. We will remove dice if there's something we don't like or if we know we don't have the ingredients available, and then let them roll. The other night we made a grilled rack of lamb with butternut squash risotto, decided by the dice, and it was AMAZING." —CJ

    Get it from Amazon for $24.

    5. A convertible backpack so you can make a quick outfit change wherever you go. No regrets here.


    If you're hopping from a family dinner to the club, you can transform this bag from a backpack to a cross body (going out) bag! No more spending hours upon hours agonizing over the best bag to use.

    Promising review: "This mini backpack is a really good value for the money. It's convertible so can be used for many different events. You can dress it up or down. Plus, it's black with brown straps, which I like because of the versatility. It's what I've been looking for without costing a fortune." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A decision making pad to help you sort out the really tough stuff. Should I curl my hair or should I straighten it? A daily dilemma, written by me.


    Promising review: "I bought this for myself (no joke) as a way of kicking my own decision fatigue. I can obsess over making decisions! As a researcher at heart, I'm 100% the type of person who feels like they need to read every Amazon review, double check prices, evaluate, and overthink before buying anything, planning things, etc. Yes, it is a joke pad, (kind of) but I've also seriously used it to get out of overthinking a decision!" —Erin D.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.19.

    7. A split-decision pie pan or lasagna pan so you can make more than one flavor at a time. Your "I love apple pie but my significant other loves pumpkin pie" internal debate is over. You CAN have your pie, and eat it too., Amazon

    Both of these ~split-tastic~ pans are dishwasher safe! A super neat feature of the pie pan is that it has a removable bottom, so you can lift it out of the pan and serve it without ruining the *beloved* crust.

    Promising review: "I love cherry pie but my husband loves apple pie. Making two pies is such a waste because there are only two of us here at home. I hate to buy store bought pie, because it just isn't the same, and this was the perfect solution. I love everything about this pan!" —Sherry S.

    Promising review: "This is the best pan EVER! It cuts down on cooking time and the lasagna comes out perfectly every time. I can make regular, eggplant, and a veggie lasagna all at the same time to please my family of eight! I also love that it's dishwasher safe!" —Heather

    Get the lasagna pan for $19.26 and the pie pan for $13.97, both from Amazon.

    8. A shade-shifting nail polish to take the anxiety out of picking a nail color.

    For the best results, apply three coats of this polish OR one coat over a black nail polish base! So simple, so chic.

    Promising review: "I love this nail polish! A lot of the commenters seem to be complaining about how many coats it took to get the full effect, and I cannot speak to that as I followed the maker's advice and used one coat of black polish prior to applying the shade shifter polish. It was gorgeous straight away, and this is still my go-to when I can't decide on a color. I didn't notice much chipping, but I use CND's stickey base and top coats, so that might have something to do with the longevity of my manicures." —Quirkyblogger

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    9. An adapter so you can charge your phone and listen to music at the same time. You'll never need to choose between a dead phone and your favorite song EVER again.


    This adapter is compatible with the iPhone 7, 7 plus, 8, 8 plus, and X. Double the USB ports, double the fun!

    Get it from Walmart for $6.98.

    10. A lipstick that'll change color based off your body's chemical pH balance. Your body will tell you what color lipstick you should be wearing, not your outfit color or anything like that. Pretty crazy, huh?,

    This lipstick soothes and protects your pout using vitamin E and shea butter.

    Promising review: "This lipstick has the most creamy, moisturizing formula. The color changes based on your pH, so I have found that the color is different based on the day. Nevertheless, it is always SO flattering. The shades range from a light pink to a deep berry. Once the lipstick wears off, a pretty matte lip stain is left behind." —Becky

    Get it from Amazon on $20.09.

    11. A predict a pen to be your voice of reason. "Should I go out on a work night?" HELL YEAH! (0 out of 10 people actually recommend that choice, btw)


    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift and people loved it. Everyone was passing it around to click through the list of answers. It's well made and the answers are hilarious." —Lisa Swan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.48.

    12. A wine towel that'll show you what wines go perfectly with the dish you're making. Say goodbye to the days where you would just close your eyes and point every time you were at the wine store.

    Uncommon Goods

    Each of these towels covers 68 popular wines and 56 different foods, for 3,808 possible pairings. MIND. BLOWN.

    Get a set of two for $28 from Uncommon Goods.

    13. A roll on essential oil stick to help calm you down and help reduce stress when you really just can't make a decision.


    Psst! The chill roll on is pre-diluted with 100% pure fractionated coconut oil for safe topical use.

    Promising review: "I use the chill roller when I feel a little anxious or stressed. It goes on easily and the subtle scent lasts for a couple of hours. I like that I can smell it, but those around me aren’t able to detect any scent. The packaging is sturdy and it is easy to carry around." —Kimberly

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    14. A mini magic 8 ball you'll want to carry with you everywhere. It really does come in handy when you're having a "idk what to do SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE THIS DECISION FOR ME" moment.


    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    15. A 3-in-1 hooded scarf with gloves so you can cut out the 10 minute battle with yourself every morning on what cold weather accessories you need. Just grab this bad boy and you'll be ready for anything. BRING IT, WINTER.


    No more fussing over if you should wear your coat with a hood or deciding last minute to wear gloves and trying to find a matching pair. This scarf will solve all (ok, maybe most) of your Winter woes!

    Promising review: "This 3-in-1 scarf was more plush than I expected! It is is very soft and warm. I love that it is long enough for your to put your hands in the pockets, even while wrapped around your neck. I live in Minnesota, and this really helps to keep your neck and face warm. I was impressed with seller, too. Everything arrived packaged nicely and it even arrived a day early." —LadyCatherine2005

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    16. Consequential Dilemmas and Inconsequential Dilemmas, which are full of hilarious diagrams and will help you make some important (and maybe not so important) life choices.

    Knock Knock

    Promising review: "If you need a good laugh or know someone who does, you need to order the inconsequential dilemmas book. The flow charts are funny, imaginative, and smart. It's difficult to pick my favorite charts because they are all so good, but 'should I go to law school or start a rock band,' 'am I too old to be at this party,' and 'should I listen to the voices in my head," are among my favorites." —Marianne LaBatto

    Get Consequential Dilemmas from Amazon for $14.89 and Inconsequential Dilemmas from Amazon for $12.28 or Barnes & Noble for $14.65.
