    Promising review: "I love this SO much! Everything about it is perfect. I thought the waistband tie would be a cheap silk material, but it's actually a decent, somewhat stretchy material! The lace is great quality — soft and delicate, not itchy or hard, and the straps are thankfully adjustable. Overall, great product!" —Daisygirl

Once I opened it and started piecing together the 'Outer Rim' 😂, I was DELIGHTED to find that the puzzle pieces were a great size, not too big and not too small! Once I started filling it in, I was MORE excited to find that it was challenging without being overly frustrating!! In total, spent four hours straight puzzling with a few breaks. All in all, a GREAT puzzle for one person or a family!!!! Put on some Star Wars or Mandolorian and you have yourself a heck of an evening in!!!! Recommend to all!" —Tiffany Davis

    *Stacey, Christian, and Diane, if you see this, I very much DO know you and am obsessed with you!

    I got this for Christmas and love it! I don't have the patience or skills for most adult coloring books, but I love how this one isn't too intricate and the pictures don't take forever to finish. It's got a great mix of pictures to color, including pages with just clothes and accessories, outfits on models, OOTD close-ups, and mini NYC scenes. It's a fun and relaxing thing to do while I'm on the phone or watching TV, and it reminds me of the fashion design art sets I had as a kid, since you can get creative filling in the looks in the book! The book itself is also really nice-looking, with a ribbon bookmark and a smooth cover.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.87.

    12. A Schitt's Creek magnet set that's simply the best — it might even bring you more joy than a cute huge yacht.

    It's paraben-free and not tested on animals!

    Promising review: "I generally go through at least three bars of soap in month. This soap has lasted the entire month and I still have a good-sized portion left. It hasn't broken into tiny pieces like my usual soap. It's also smells great and adds moisture to my dry skin. I'll be ordering more and trying the other fragrances. Great as a gift, too." —Kuda

    Get it from Amazon for $4.68+ (available in 29 scents).

    16. A squee-worthy Totoro AirPod case here to Miyaza-keep your precious Pods safe and sound.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    17. A genius double-ended waterproof eyeshadow stick that's got long-lasting, roll-on color on one side and a smudger on the other, so your days of wasting time, space, and money, on a whole palette are pretty much over.


    It contains vitamins C and E and is cruelty-free!!

    Promising review: "I have to do my makeup with one hand most mornings while holding my baby on my hip with the other. Bought this because using an eyeshadow brush and palette became out of the question. You can layer it for more intense color or just do one light swipe for a hint of shadow. Stays all day, doesn't crease or smear, even in the blistering 100+ Texas heat. Love this stuff. Worth it all day." —Millenial Mama

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in four colors).

    19. An ingenious (and aww-worthy) pencil case that'll make you smile and keep you organized at the same dang time. It converts to a standing cup for multi-purpose, portable storage that's truly the cat's meow.

    It's also got two small interior pockets!

    Promising review: "If I could give this six stars, I would. I immediately filled it up and rejoiced at how neatly it held (and, OMG, sorted) my art pens for my purse. Jubilant, I came straight back to Amazon to order three more as gifts! It's the perfect size for tossing into a purse or backpack. It is a little smaller than I expected, but honestly, it holds the perfect quantity for what you would need out and about. I absolutely LOVE its design. It opens and converts down smoothly, standing up just like it should. I can clearly see all of my pen nib sizes and colors without having to dig through a pencil case or spray pens across a café table. It's very well-made, too! Very sturdy! This is marvelous." —stonecat

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89 (available in five colors).
