Promising review: "This is the perfect bathing suit. I'm about 200lbs, wear a size 16-20 depending on the brand, and have a VERY difficult time finding bathing suits that fit. I took the advice of other reviewers and purchased the XXXL, or the equivalent of a US 12-14. THIS SUIT BLEW ME OUT OF THE WATER, HOLY HECK!!! The fit is, in a word, perfect. I'm very glad the bust area had more fabric, as I am not lacking in that department. I may just buy this in every color." —Emma Maas

It comes with two stamps (one for the right eye, one for the left), both of which have a black liquid liner pen on the other end, so you've got everything you need to create the purr-fect look.

Promising review: "I am insanely impressed with this product. They were surprisingly easy to use and my wings came out beautifully! These stamps have made applying eyeliner and creating a perfect wing hassle-free and super quick. I don’t wear eyeliner every day because it’s so time consuming, but now I will likely wear it more often. I’ve been wearing this stamp liner for eight hours and my eyeliner still looks on point. There hasn’t been any fading or flaking whatsoever. I couldn’t recommend it more!" —TickTockAlice

22. The AvoSeedo, a tool that helps you turn a leftover avocado pit into a little tree you won't be able to stop guac-ing about.

amazon.com, amazon.com

While the AvoSeedo isn't meant for growing your own avocados (it would take many years for the plant to actually sprout fruit), having a mini tree is a downright adorable treat for any avocado fan. Just peel the pit, put it in this little device, and float it in a tub of water. It's a fun project you can actually afford, no matter how much money you've spent on avocado toast.

Promising review: "I couldn't be happier! I've tried unsuccessfully for years to get an avocado seed to sprout using the method of breaking it open with toothpicks. But after my very first try with the AvoSeedo, I have a baby tree to call my own. The picture above was taken about two months after I put the seed in the little boat. I plan to give these out as gifts because people keep asking me about them and love the concept! I'm so proud of my trees that I proudly show off the pictures everywhere I go." —Bananarama

Get it from Amazon for $10.95 (available in four colors), Jet for $10.95 (available in three colors), or Walmart for $10.98.

29. A Disney animals coloring book full of over 100 super-intricate designs starring your favorite animated animals (and some of their human friends).

barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This hardcover coloring book is beautiful inside and out. Unlike regular children's coloring books, this one has intricate and unique designs. You can choose to use single colors to cover a large amount of space at a time, or challenge yourself and fill in each detail separately. Either way, the pictures come out looking great. The book has a good variety of characters (from more than 16 different Disney films), from more recent ones to the classics. I only wish they had included Oliver and Company!" —Ally

Promising review: "I was very skeptical jumping into the bralette trend; as a size 36DD, it’s hard to find ones that are big enough and have enough support. But when I tried this on, I bought it in every color available in my size. Seriously, I love it. When I’m wearing it, it gives me the support that my regular bras do but also the feeling like I'm not wearing a bra at all." —KLYNNO94

Get it from Aerie for $16.17 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).
