    Promising review: "Perfect gift for too many people you know. I bought this as a joke for my friend; she absolutely loves it. It smells great too — it’s like a light sandalwood scent." —Jillian Dannunzio

    Get it from Amazon for $31.95.

    2. A genius microwave- and dishwasher-safe bowl complete with a handle, lid, and removable phone stand (!!!!) to enable peak laziness as you indulge in some ramen, pasta, soup, or cereal for one with the greatest side dish of all — your For You page.

    Promising reviews: "Haven't had it long, but so far it has survived a toddler, a kindergartner with a grudge, and an angsty pre-teen in addition to allowing me to enjoy my lunch while watching an obscene amount of YouTube. Not only do I like it, but I'll probably be buying another in a different color after it is inevitably stolen by the previously mentioned pre-teen." —dabston

    "It's very light, with a huge capacity for soups, salads, mac 'n' cheese, spaghetti, stews, etc. If I didn't have any dishes, this actually would be the only thing I need other than a plate. Love the lid, as you can put it in the microwave, and the top does not blow off. It WILL stain with tomato based sauces. Who cares, as long as I've got my bowl I'm happy! Great for camping as it is virtually weightless. :) It's pretty much indestructible." —Sheryl L. Ketchum

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in three colors).

    3. Amazing Rocketbook index cards, which, like the brand's famous smart notebooks, can be scanned into the Rocketbook app for safekeeping, then wiped clean with water and reused endlessly. The app even lets you display them in a slideshow like regular flashcards and allows you to search your notes!

    Amazon

    Yes, this is the stuff of office supply sci-fi novels, a genre we never knew we needed until now. The cards are double-sided, with lines on the front and a dot grid on the back so they work for all kinds of notes. The set comes with a pen but also works with any Pilot Frixion writing utensils.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for my college-age kids for their studies at my daughter's urging (environmental reasons). It has been a great success! The Study Mode through the app has made studying for exams much easier and less of a hassle. No more bent cards. No more lost cards. All of them are in the Study Mode just waiting for self-quiz. My daughter even connects her phone to her TV and turns studying into trivia night!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 40 plus a pen and microfiber cloth from Amazon for $14.32.

    4. An "awww"-inspiring set of plush cat toys featuring a pretzel, croissant, baguette, cinnamon roll, seeded roll, and slice of bread, because your kitty is always making biscuits but has yet to see any actual baked goods come from their efforts. It's time for that to change.

    "Welcome to the bread bank. We sell bread, we sell loafs...."

    Promising review: "Sturdy, cute, and my cat actually likes them! I have the pickiest, grumpiest, old man of a cat who doesn't ever want to play with toys. I've been trying out different types of toys to see if maybe he'd finally take a liking to something. As soon as I took the croissant out of the package he grabbed it and started swatting it around the room. I'm so happy! Gotta keep the old kitties active and entertained!" —Angelo

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $15.99.

    5. A genuinely hilarious sticker celebrating one of the most relatable but also most underrated lines in Bridesmaids, because who amongst us wouldn't be tempted to take nine golden retriever puppies from a bridal shower???

    Always Fits

    Always Fits is a wonderfully quirky small biz based in Massachusetts with a huge selection of cheeky and pop-culture-inspired gifts.

    Promising review: "Greatly increases productivity. I absolutely love this sticker. I placed it on my laptop. The first time using my laptop after receiving my sticker, I was able to write a paper for my graduate ethics class and wrote a 12-page paper in two hours. True story!" —Steph

    Get it from Always Fits for $4.95.

    6. A stylish and convenient taco holder that'll make your favorite dinner even better (and certainly more Instagramable).

    flip side that's solid orange

    Promising review: "These are fun to use and make assembling a taco much easier. Perfect size for a regular-sized soft or hard corn tortilla taco shell. The colorful side holds two tacos and the plain side holds three tacos. Tacos keep their shape and are really easy to pick up out of the holder. Makes it easier for everyone and especially for kids. Super easy to clean. I wash by hand, so don't know how well they hold up in the dishwasher. They are a sturdy hard plastic-type material; I've dropped them several times and so far no chips, cracks, or breakage. Totally buying more. Love these." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three designs).

    7. AirPods-compatible hooks for anyone who hasn't wanted to admit that their beloved, trendy, high-tech earbuds don't actually stay in their ears very well. Even if they do, you could definitely use a little extra protection against losing such splurge-y items, especially when exercising or on the go.

    Promising review: "The hooks are comfortable and solve the problem of the earbuds falling out over and over again. An unexpected benefit is that the Pods can sit gently on the ear; no need to shove them inside to secure them. I can barely feel the Pods or the hooks. Glad I found these…they solve all problems. And I can wear my glasses while wearing them. Great price, too." —TutorMaven

    Get them from Amazon for $10.49.

    8. NYX's Powder Puff Lippie, a matte wonder from the fan-fave, cruelty-free brand that comes in the cutest little tube with a brush applicator that'll feel low-maintenance but still give you the liquid lip look you love.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh! I am so in love!!!! First, the matte is stunning!!!! It took me a minute to figure out how to get the color out and saturate the brush lol. I also love how it feels. It doesn't feel greasy or waxy at all! I am just so impressed!!!!" —Tessa

    Get it from Amazon for $6.19+ (available in 14 colors).

    9. A dark chocolate bar filled with creamy brownie batter (yes, you read that correctly!!!) for anyone who's ever wished biting into a candy bar felt a bit more like biting into a lava cake.

    I just tried one of these wonders for the first time yesterday, and OMG. I had low expectations after trying the brand's cookie dough bar, where you could see but not really taste the cookie dough filling. Not so with the brownie batter version. Keeping one of these at my desk to eat a piece mid-workday is like having little desktop bites of chocolate cake. The texture of the filling really stands out against the rest of the dark chocolate bar, and the flavor is truly brownie-batter-tastic! The bar also come split into pieces so it's easy to break a couple off for a 3 p.m. (or 7 p.m., or midnight...) treat.

    Get it from Dylan's Candy Bar for $3.75.

    10. The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of the Whole Stupid World, a silly tome for anyone who loves (or, I suppose, hates) birds but is bored by typical field guides. This one is full of NSFW names and descriptions for different species that'll have you LOLing even if you never actually go looking for said birds IRL.

    11. A smile-inducing brass animal pal designed to hang out on your houseplant and give your foliage friends new life. There are so many cool animals available, there's no way you'll be able to pick just one!

    These cuties are from a London-based small business with all kinds of cool plant and home goodies!

    Promising review: "I bought the squirrel, the tree frog, and the bush baby, and they are so adorable! They are great quality and yet light enough to not weigh down the plant. I appreciate the biodegradable packaging as well. I highly recommend these. They're just so much fun!!" —Sarah

    Get it from AnotherStudio on Etsy for $8.42 (available in 28 animals).

    12. A stunning cubic zirconia and freshwater pearl necklace that could pass for a genuine piece of fine jewelry, but has a price tag I actually cannot believe. Spoiler alert: it's under $30!!!

    Promising review: "I love it. The necklace is a great length, and I love that it can be dressed up or down and still looks good." —Flowergirl63

    Get it from J. Crew for $29.50.

    13. Impressively real-looking faux tulips for anyone who loves the look of fresh flowers in their home, but not so much the whole keeping-them-alive thing.

    Promising review: "Gorgeous artificial flowers!! Perfect for those of us who are allergy-riddled floral enthusiasts. I use them for seasonal and holiday decorating, as well as homemade gifts for my family and friends. I love the careful attention to detail, particularly how random leaves appear to have 'dirt' as if freshly picked right from the garden. Really appreciate a quality allergy-free floral option." —Jen M

    Get a set of 28 from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in eight colors).

    14. Smart 10, a cool twist on a trivia game that's not too easy or hard and doesn't take too long or short a time to play. It's Goldilocks-level jusssstttt right for time at home with your fam.

    game box and device that stores cards and has removable pegs to reveal answers
    Amazon

    I'm not much of a games person, but my family does love Bananagrams. So when the makers of our fave word game sent me this cool trivia game from their brand, I figured it was worth a try. I played it while home with my parents and it was so much fun! To play, you pass around the device holding the trivia cards (which is a bit unwieldy, my one complaint) and take turns answering the trivia prompt. Each card has a main question (like which movie a duo of iconic characters is from) and 10 parts of that question around the side (for example, 10 character duos, like Rose and Jack). Players pass the device around, each answering one prompt and removing the corresponding marker to see if they were right (so I'd say "Titanic" and pass it off for someone else to answer for a different duo). You collect points for each right answer but are out of the round if you get one wrong. Then, you move to the next card and the first player to 30 points wins. I really enjoyed the mix of questions — because they cover everything from pop culture to geography to history, there's something for everyone. Plus, each card has prompts that are easier and some that are harder, so you can be strategic about which you answer. I'm looking forward to playing again!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    15. An awesome mini donut maker that'll turn donut mix or any other kind of batter (store-bought is fine, I won't tell!) into seven scrumptious snack-size circles in minutes. It even comes with a recipe book so you'll have a ~hole~ lot of ideas for toppings and glazes.

    Promising review: "Donut pass this up. This little device has changed how we brunch! It has a decently long cord, which makes it easy to use in a kitchen without a ton of outlets, and it only takes a few minutes to heat up. Once ready, it only takes 5–7 minutes to make a batch of delicious and piping hot mini donuts. It comes with a book with all kinds of donut recipes, which is so helpful. The plates get really hot so it definitely isn't safe for kids to use, but I use a makeshift Ziploc piping bag to help keep my distance while I fill the molds, which I highly recommend. I wish the plates were removable, that would make it much easier to clean, but it isn't very difficult to sponge it down once cool." —Stephanierunsforfun

    Get it from Amazon for $21.50+ (available in two designs).

    16. A cathartic and OMGworthy bubble wrap calendar you'll look forward to popping every day. This gives a whole new meaning to ringing in a new year with ~bubbly~.

    Amazon

    It comes with dot stickers you can use to write little reminders on certain days.

    Promising review: "This is the talk of my office. Everyone laughs about me 'getting stabby' with the days as I pop my bubbles. Moreover, I like seeing where I am in the year by using this. It helps me understand a year is shorter than it seems. I use a bright pink thumbtack to mark what day it is. Cute!" —HoundMama

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    17. Nostalgia-tastic coasters inspired by retro Nintendo cartridges, because keeping your coffee table looking nice for your game night guests is the ~name of the game~.

    the full set featuring super mario bros 1 through 3, donkey kong, duck hunt, metroid, legend of zelda, and excitebike

    Promising review: "I have had these for a while now and felt like a review was in order. I've been using these throughout my house and because I am an avid retro gamer, these fit right in. I've been surprised how resistant they are to beverages leaving moisture, or if I need to rinse them off from a drop/spill. They don't seem to wear down or fade at all. I had to get used to tilting my drink a little before lifting though so they don't stay sealed to the bottom (from any moisture) and come with it, but a worthwhile tradeoff for them. Everyone loves seeing and using them." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $11.50.

    18. A genius device that sticks right on your (or your kid's or pet's) pill bottle so you never have to doubt whether you took your medicine or not. Plus, they're reusable, so you can peel 'em off and stick on new bottles when you get a refill.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I love it. This is a lifesaver! I’ve been looking for something like this for years. I always forget 10 minutes later if I actually took my medicine or just put it down. I’ve tried so many different ways, making marks on the bottle, making stickers, and other pill containers. None ever work. And pill containers are so bulky when I only need one pill." —Niki

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $19.99.

    19. An adjustable measuring cup from the kitchen geniuses at Oxo to eliminate eyeballing and guesstimating for good. Plus, the adjustable body can also be used like a squeegee to push out all of even the stickiest ingredients.

    It can expand to hold up to 2 cups.

    Promising review: "I love love love these. It’s the ONLY way to measure peanut butter, Crisco, and other spackle-like ingredients. No more scraping and scraping to get peanut butter out of your measuring cup, and you’ll get out 99.9% of the peanut butter you put into the cup! That never happens with a regular measuring cup. Easy to clean too. I’m forever forgetting which way to take it apart and reassemble it, but it only goes two ways (lol) so it doesn’t take long to figure it out." —sandy s

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    20. And a sliding adjustable measuring spoon that can slide from a quarter to a full teaspoon on one end and a half to a full tablespoon on the other, so you won't need to clutter your drawer or dishwasher with a full set of measuring spoons. Honestly, why do the regular, nonadjustable versions exist at all?

    Promising review: "One measuring spoon to replace several...how can you go wrong? The two pieces completely separate so you can wash it thoroughly! Pleased with my purchase and the amount of room it just freed up in my drawer!" —zonneschijn

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    21. An iconic "This is fine" meme Funko Pop! figure, because you and your desk deserve a cute little buddy who captures your energy while you're at work/reading the news/just plain trying to exist in 2022. 

    Promising review: "Things at work have been super stressful lately, and as a result I’ve been losing morale. This little guy makes me smile whenever I’m sitting at my desk a bit frustrated. The lettering was fine on the mug I received and the paint seems fine. I would keep the cardboard panel with the flames on it to give it better context. I just taped the cardboard flames onto my pencil holder. Love this little guy." —Cheryll

    Get it from Amazon for $14.86.

    22. An iconic Levi's faux leather moto jacket in the bright color of your dreams. It comes in so many hues and textures, from basic to bold, you're sure to find one that'll make you swoon (I certainly did).
