    1. A Polaroid camera with a built in mirror so you can take a selfie the good old-fashioned way.


    This Polaroid camera comes in five different beautiful colors, includes a built-in selfie mirror, and will automatically determine the best lighting for the setting you are taking a photo in. All you have to do is turn the adjustment dial to the lit up icon for flawless, vintage-esque selfies! Film is not included, but you can buy a three pack from Amazon for $35.41.

    Promising Review: "We were itching for some of that vintage glow and softness that characterizes instant cameras. No matter how good filters you use on your phone or on your computer that "Polaroid" looks is really hard to attain with digital photography. A few months ago at a friend's gathering he brought out an earlier version of the Instax Mini and we all took some pictures and just kept doing our thing. Maybe 1/2 hours later they passed the pictures around and my jaw dropped. Such a wonderful mix of colors, saturation, and that velvety glossy glow. So after a few months I decided to bite the bullet and bought this one. I cannot emphasize how much fun you can have and the wonderful pictures it takes." —Relentless.

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99 (available in five colors).

    2. An adult coloring book to make sure you're always "too busy" to go out.


    Promising Review: "It arrived on a day that I spent $200 to replace a tooth I lost while eating a Sour Patch Kid. With period hormones raging and the inability to chew solid foods at the ripe old age of 26, there was something so soothing about coloring in (and adding to my arsenal of swears) the word 'cuntmuffin.'

    This coloring book is the definition of clutch. Also, it's adorable." —Toothless Colorist

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    3. A mug with a tea bag holder so you don't have to get up from your Netflix binge to have your perfect cup of tea.

    Urban Outfitters

    This super cute ceramic mug is handmade in Thailand and safe to put in the microwave and dishwasher!

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $15.

    4. A fun bath bomb to be your adult rubber duckie when none of your friends will stay in with you.


    This bath bomb not only foams but creates a full-on colorful and scented bubble bath. It contains olive oil to nourish your skin and make it super soft, but promises not to leave a greasy residue. It comes in 11 other scents, including spearmint eucalyptus, relaxing lavender, oatmeal milk and honey, and many more for the ultimate night in.

    Promising Review: "Excellent bath bomb! Smells great, turns the water a beautiful color, makes our skin silky smooth, and has bubbles! Seriously, what more could you ask for in a bath bomb?" —L.Baylay

    Get one from Amazon for $7.99 or a pack of six for $24.99 (available in 11 scents).

    5. A pair of memory foam footie slippers so watching your favorite baking shows can't knock your socks off too hard.

    Bed Bath and Beyond, Katie Glider

    I personally own these and absolutely cannot live without them. Not only do they keep my feet nice and toasty, but wearing them around the house is like walking on clouds!

    Get them from Bed, Bath & Beyond for $9.99 (one size fits most) or a similar style from Amazon for $7.66+ (available in sizes S–L).

    6. A candle named after locations in literary classics to really set the mood for any date night.

    Uncommon Goods

    This candle comes in a variety of different amazing scents that will take you straight to your favorite literary destinations including Sherlock Holmes's 221B Baker Street (black currant tea and leather books), Alice in Wonderland's Mad Tea Party (bergamot, lavender, mandarin, thyme, and ylang ylang, with a touch of jasmine), Jane Eyre's Thornfield Garden (roses and rain water) and Pride and Prejudice's Pemberley (lily, lilac, rose, hyacinth, and ivy).

    Promising Review: "I love this candle! I bought both the Sherlock Holmes scent and it smells masculine, but not overpowering. It smells exactly how I think his home would smell!" —Catherine

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $16.

    7. A heated massager to take away your aches and pains after a long day of bargain hunting.


    This three-setting massager can be used on your neck, back, shoulders, or wherever you are experiencing pain. Never let pain stop you from relaxing again!

    Promising review: "I’m not one to write a review but I feel the need to tell the world how amazing this is. The heat is a perfect temperature and the varying speeds, along with strength of pressure, are spot-on perfection. My back, neck, and feet are beyond grateful! Everyone needs one of these in their lives." —Dayzees13

    Get it from Amazon for $48.99+ (available in two colors).

    8. A RFID blocking wallet because you have serious trust issues with modern day technology.


    This wallet has nine individual credit card slots that fold accordion style, two cash slots, and one outside slot for an ID. You can be sure you are not a victim of credit card theft while using this wallet, as it prevents thieves from using a special type of RFID scanner to steal your information through your pant pocket or handbag. Also, there is a one-year warranty!

    Promising Review: "I love having my cards in a case that is RFID. I have been a victim of someone scanning my card while paying for my groceries and to find out they are having a wonderful time at Disneyworld on it - well, maybe not so much now that they are in jail. Peace of mind was definitely worth the price of this wallet. It's a bonus that it is well made, a pretty color, and holds all that I need for my travels and shopping. I would never go out without my cards protected again." —Missus B.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    9. A set of delightful face sheet masks, since a spa night at home watching Golden Girls is so much better than staying up wayyyy past your bedtime babysitting your friends at a bar.


    These masks are made of skin-nourishing ingredients such as pearl, rose, cactus, green tea, and lotus extracts that will leave your skin smooth and glowing. Treat yourself!

    Promising Review: "I was glad to see the five-piece set on sale at Macy's and purchased the set online. I have become a fan of both the product and Macy's low price for the set. You're supposed to wash your face beforehand and leave the mask on your face at least 10 minutes but you can choose to leave it on longer. The mask is comfortable and is a good one-size-fits-all. My skin already felt soft before I applied moisturizer. So happy with my purchase that I bought more." —WindyCityGal

    Get a variety pack of five from Macy's for $12 or individual masks from Amazon for $3 each.

    10. A set of cat cookie cutters so you can bribe your friends to go to a museum with you by baking them cute and delicious cookies.


    Promising Review: "Well made and cute as heck. Will last a lifetime if you take care of them. What I like about the design is that you can clearly tell they represent cats, but there are no long tails, separated legs, or narrow necks that will break off when handling your cookies. I had another cat cookie cutter with a dangling tail that rarely made it from oven to table without breaking off." —Twisted Whiskers

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A portable space heater, because you're always a little bit chilly, even when wearing a scarf, multiple layers of clothing, and a million blankets.,

    This 200 watt heater is just a little taller than 6" (about as tall as a grande Starbucks cup!) and will provide you maximum heat. Reviewers say it is extremely quiet, so you barely know that it's on! Bring it to a friend's house if you know you're always cold over there and they absolutely refuse to turn up their heat.

    Promising review: "I bought this heater two years ago and it is STILL perfect. It's traveled with me to a few homes, and I always put it under my desk to warm my feet. It is so quiet that nobody even knows I have it unless I tell them. The heat that comes out is very fast, strong, and localized to a small area. Perfect for under my desk, and probably would be great on top of a desk if your arms/body get cold too." —Kathryn

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

    12. A blanket with sleeves so you can do anything and everything while still being comfy, especially reading your favorite book.



    Promising Review: "Why I ever made fun of these things and resisted buying one I don't know. Who cares how dorky it is when it's SO SOFT, WARM, AND COZY. (Yeeeeeah, I just bought a second one...)" —Seoh

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in 14 patterns and colors).

    13. A hand lettering 101 book for hours of non social media–based entertainment.

    While your friends were out dancing and snapchatting you trying to make you have FOMO, you put your phone down and learned to "make your letters" dance with this 112 page creative lettering book. Who's jealous now?

    Promising Review: "I love this book. I used to practice watching tutorials but having this book makes a world of a difference. It is a beautiful book that includes the entire alphabet and space to trace them and practice them. It shows you how to connect letters and even make them dance! I love this book. I recommend this to beginners and people that are trying to better their technique." —C. Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98.

    14. A bottle of restful sleep gummy vitamins to make sure you get the most out of your slumber and prevent getting a case of the sniffles.


    These naturally flavored blackberry gummies promise to promote calmness and a healthy sleep cycle by using melationin and l-theanine!

    Promising Review: "I've tried other sleep products like the sleep drinks and other gummies but I keep coming back for these! These have worked the best out of any of the others I've tried! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for the whole night. I also wake up feeling great! No hangover feeling at all!" —Jamie Arnold

    Get it from Amazon for $13.29.

    15. A bullet journal for those Friday nights happily spent with just you and your thoughts.,

    You can use this journal to make lists, create a calendar, scribble doodles, or create full on masterpieces! Need some bullet journal pointers? Check out 18 Bullet Journal Tips And Tricks To Make 2019 More Productive Than Ever.

    Promising review: "This is a high-quality journal with dotted pages, an elastic page marker/security close and two ribbon page markers. It has a pocket inside the back cover. The color is lovely and it arrived when it was supposed to. When I've filled this one, I'll definitely want another just like it. A few folks have mentioned ghosting and ink smearing, but I have had no problem at all, even though I've used three different pens on it. I've made a few sketches with dark lines, too, and no problem. The pages are sewn in, not glued. I've used a plethora of notebooks, but never one I liked as well as this." —Robin Steinweg

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    16. A spool of chunky yarn so you can knit scarves and blankets with your very own arms. Literally.


    Ditch traditional needle knitting and knit with your arms. It's what all the young, hip people are doing these days! If you're a beginner or don't know how to start, you can get this Arm Knitting book on Amazon for $11.52!

    Get the yarn from Amazon for $16.99+.

    17. A cozy velour hoodie and jogger set that you will undoubtedly change into within seconds of returning home from work.


    Reviewers say this runs a bit small, so for a cozy and relaxed fit, you may want to order a size up!

    Promising review: "These are a great buy for the money. They are soft and cozy, but are very lightweight velour so you don't overheat. I would order one size up if you like your loungewear on the looser side. I will definitely enjoy these this winter!" —AmazonFan

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–2X and in four colors).

    18. A stylish insulated lunch bag because no one wants to be around you when you're hangry.


    This is a water-resistant, stain-resistant, insulated, and easy-to-clean lunch bag so you can easily take food with you anywhere you go and not get made fun of for it (too hard).

    Promising Review: "This is a well made, good quality bag. The exterior material looks water repellent to some extent. The interior has the thermal layer.

    I like that this bag has a wide bottom and then slightly tapered at the top. The wide bottom allows me to put in a 4"-5" round container and also leaves plenty of room for a water bottle. I highly recommend this lunch tote. You wouldn't find another compatible product with this superb quality anywhere else with a similar price." —LoveToShop

    Get it from Amazon for 14.99+.

    Cheers to all the young and (sort of) fun 20-something-year-old grandmas out there!
