    1. Amazing transparent pimple patches you can pop on and go about your day while they suck all the gunk out of your pores. Just ask the 2,500+ reviewers who've had success with them!

    2. The perfect oversized cardigan that basically won't leave your body all fall long. It's sure to become your new close-knit BFF.

    3. Hangover Helper, an adorable little cookbook full of hangover cure recipes from all over the world. From pizza bagels to bacon kimchi fried rice, you're sure to find something yummy to keep you from totally regretting last night.

    4. A beyond fuzzy faux fur throw blanket that over 2,500 five-star reviews suggest you won't need any time to warm up to. You could be as cozy at this pup!

    5. Glossier's Balm Dotcom, a cruelty-free and antioxidant-rich universal skin salve that you can use on your lips or anywhere else for moisture that actually lasts. Because while bears eat a lot and then hibernate, one of the best ways a human can prepare for winter is by stocking up on moisturizers that really work.

    6. A super-satisfying planning pad with space to map out pretty much every part of your day, from appointments and must-dos to water intake and meals (ya know, the stuff you actually can't live without).

    7. Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner, a beeswax and orange oil formula that's basically like a spa treatment for your wood surfaces. In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading. If there's wood in your home, I ~wood~ say you need this.

    8. A whimsical Pusheen travel pillow to make every plane ride or uncomfy sleeping situation approximately a million times more (dare I say it?) fun.

    9. Genius dishwasher- and freezer safe, BPA-free silicone stretch lids that'll have pretty much anything you make or any container you use covered — literally. They can even be used as fruit savers!

    10. Vivienne Sabó Cabaret Premiere mascara, a cruelty-free, luxe-looking formula that over 1,500 reviewers swear by for looking glam on a budget and that may make you abandon all other brands for good.

    11. A universal jar opener that takes up — get this — ZERO drawer space. Because you don't have as big a kitchen as the Krusty Krab, but you do sometimes feel like Patrick struggling to open a jar.

    12. A genius backpack organizer insert to make your go-everywhere carryall actually practical, not just an endless abyss of crap you carry around on your back.

    13. A LOL-worthy yet genius Apple Watch holder that lets you prop up your favorite gadget and keep it visible while charging, plus allows you to revisit the good ol' days of your first beloved Apple product.

    14. A double-sided electronics cleaning brush capable of not only brushing away dust, but also scrubbing the tighter nooks and crannies of your keyboard, phone, or camera lens.

    15. A protein and collagen hair mask that hundreds of reviewers swear by for getting damaged hair back to its absolute softest. Because you've gotta be ready for a Lizzo-worthy hair toss at any moment, and you're never going to settle for anything less than silky smoothness again.

    16. A simple yet brilliant cereal bowl designed to banish soggy breakfasts for good. That's right — it keeps the cereal and milk (or soup and crackers, or chips and dip, or whatever other combo you want to put in there) apart to give you maximum control over the deliciousness.

    17. A clever and cheeky chain necklace that's an absolutely massive mood.

    18. A fabulous shade of Ella + Mila polish, which isn't a regular nail polish, it's a cool nail polish. I'm talking vegan and cruelty-free, made in the USA, AND free of seven major chemicals, like formaldehyde, camphor, and DBP. You've really ~nailed~ this whole ethical beauty thing.

    19. A ~sweet~ little clay bear that no baker should be without. Add water to him, and he'll soften brown sugar you'd thought had hardened past use.

    20. A Yeti backpack cooler here to make your outdoor and day trip dreams come true. I'm talking keeping things cold and being less of a schlep.

    21. And finally, some splurge-worthy and totally unique earrings that I personally am not sure how I've survived without, since they've managed to flawlessly combine my two favorite things: pearls and pasta.
