    1. A hydrating cleansing mask that bubbles when applied to wet skin so you can see and feel it working.,

    Promising review: "This works well to get a nice, deep clean. I love the tingling feeling, which makes my skin feel refreshed. I have very oily and sensitive skin, but after a month of using this I've had fewer breakouts and no issues with sensitivity. " —Idaho

    2. A friendly fox oven mitt here to protect your paws in the kitchen.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.79+ (available in two colors).

    4. Quirky PJs so adorable, you may have to host a good old fashioned slumber party just so you can show them off.


    I have three sets of these (the popcorn, leopard print, and sunglass-wearing French bulldogs) and they make me smile every time I put them on! I run hot when I sleep, so the shorts-and-cropped-tee combo is perfect. They're comfy and machine washable and I'll probably order more eventually!

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 28 designs).

    5. A LOL-worthy spoon that'll put you in the ranks of infamous cereal criminals like Norman Flakes and the Headless Horsebran.

    6. An unbelievably affordable 2-in-1 eyeliner, which (*extremely Stefon voice*) has got everything: a pencil and liquid eyeliner brush, over 1,000 positive reviews, and most importantly, a fun leopard bottle.


    Promising review: "I have been wing challenged forever. I love the look of a nice black cat eye, but the technique has always escaped me. This tool is amazing. The tip is firm so you have lots of control, and the actual liner is a nice intense black that dries down matte. I quickly stocked up on more of these because I'm thinking it might be the holy grail. The picture I included is my first use with just one pass." —Tiarra Reyes

    Get it from Amazon for $1.46.

    7. An aww-worthy bunny planter who's ear to give your succulents adorable accommodations and bring some joy to your desk.,

    Promising review: "It's super adorable! Though this is a very tiny planter pot, it's the perfect size for a desktop or window sill, for a succulent or other low-water plant. It comes with a saucer, which is separate, so it can be removed when you water it." —Sprout

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. Mismatch astrological sign ankle socks I recommend letting peek out from your shoes so everyone else can horoscope them out.

    10. A cream-scented, slow-rising peach squishy that'll give you a satisfying, stress-relieving squish, no butts about it.


    Promising review: "It's sooooo soft OMG, I can't even! It's so cute too! It's super slow rising — it takes about 20 seconds to rise!" —Panda

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    Promising review: "Listen up, I don't write many reviews, but this bad boy is fricking Buzz Lightyear — it went so far above and beyond. Not only were the cards hilarious, but the damn pack comes wrapped inside a pad with a little heart-shaped chocolate. I was laughing for five minutes at the packaging alone." —Kessa Rigali

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    14. A clever food decorating pencil sure to be the icing on the cake of your next creative culinary session (besides the literal icing you put in it, of course).


    Just use the "eraser" tip to fill the syringe with sauce, melted chocolate, gel icing, or whatever, then squeeze the sides to write. When you're done, it's dishwasher safe, so cleaning couldn't be easier. Basically, there's no reason to graphite how much you want this.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    15. A heart-shaped old-school alarm clock you're sure to love, and that's saying something — your alarm clock is usually your worst enemy.

    Cotton On

    Get it from Cotton On for $5.

    16. A box of truly inspirational Bob Ross adhesive bandages to help heal the side effects of your somewhat-less-happy accidents.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed, Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    There are tons of characters available, but if your anime bae is more obscure, the shop also does custom orders!

    Promising review: "Besides the awesome design, the mug itself is just really great quality. It’s pretty heavy, and the glaze is very smooth, with no bubbles or cracks. It’s simply a joy to drink out of. I'm a coffee addict, and this mug makes coffee time even more amazing, if that's even possible. I will admit that none of my other mugs get any love anymore because I'm always using this one. BTW, if Naruto isn’t your show, this Etsy shop also has a bunch of other character designs from popular series like Sailor Moon, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, One Punch Man, etc. I’m already itching for another one, TBH." —Yi Yang (Check out her full review here, #6)

    Get the Kakashi or Kaiba mug from EternalRivalDesigns on Etsy for $14.99+ (available in two sizes and three inside colors). Find more characters here.

    18. A unicorn nail fan to dry your mani so fast it'll be magical.


    Get it from Asos for $16.

    19. A super chic bag that looks like Chanel without the Chanel price tag.,

    20. A critter-motif enamel pin (be it a pile of kitties or a merry manatee) to make any bag or jacket all the more zoo-tiful.


    Get the "meowtain" or the manatee from Amazon for $9.95.

    21. A Niffler coin bank who wants nothing more than to safely store your gold. Listen, he's much cuter and more accessible than a Gringotts vault.

    Hot Topic

    Get it from Hot Topic for $10.32.

    22. A succulent-inspired soy wax candle that's whimsical, pretty, relaxing, all-around awesome, you get the point.
