    1. An easy, cozy dress for those days when you wish you could just wear your pajamas to work but unfortunately have to put on actual clothes.

    2. A shelving unit that'll control your clutter and make anything you put on it instantly look Pinterest-worthy.

    3. An all-purpose cleaner you can rely on to clean up every mess you could ever possibly make. Buh-bye, cabinet full of single-purpose cleaning products you never want to use.

    4. Miraculous pimple patches for a face so clear, everyone will assume you're a skincare pro.

    5. A simple-yet-brilliant organizer so you look a little less like a makeup hoarder.

    6. An exercise pedal so you can sit on your couch and watch Netflix while working on your fitness. That's how pro athletes do it, right?

    7. Adorable fine-tip pens that write so nicely, you won't have to worry as much about making your ~unique~ handwriting legible.

    8. And some pretty stationery because your grandma does not want to receive a thank you note written on a legal pad.

    12. Bright, sturdy dishes that'll serve up a fresh look just as well as fancy dishes, but won't break when you dump them unceremoniously in the sink.

    13. An eyelet-and-pearl trimmed number to don whenever you want to seem like you spent a long-ass time accessorizing.

    14. A set of bamboo cutting boards so polished, they can double as serving trays sure to impress your guests.

    15. A statement necklace you can throw on to make even the most basic outfit suddenly look stylish.

    16. A set of exercise cards so you can customize a guided workout that won't make you want to curl up in a ball and cry. No one has to know your personal trainer is made of paper.

    17. A subscription box guaranteed to make you seem like the most thoughtful gift giver ever, full of stuff your friend will love (from things to help them spoil themselves to adorably quirky goodies).

    18. A pretty file folder to keep your mess of papers straight and end the days of turning in dog-eared essays, because good presentation goes a long way.

    19. A one-and-done dryer brush for a blowout no one will believe isn't professional.

    20. A collapsible storage ottoman perfect for stashing all your clutter when your mom visits. "Yes, mom, of course I spent this weekend cleaning!"

    21. Cute exercise gear, because it doesn't really matter what workout you're doing as long as you look cute doing it.

    22. A whimsical watch so people will think you care about punctuality, when really all you care about are cute kitties.

    23. Iron-on mending patches for making your favorite clothes look like new without ever having to sew a single stitch.

    25. A self-cleaning litter box that'll actually keep your kitty's space even more tidy than a box you'd have to put a lot of effort into cleaning.

    26. Bento box lunch containers sure to make even the saddest of leftovers look like a masterfully crafted meal.

    27. A sexy padded lace bralette for when you want to look cute enough for ~company~ without wasting time forcing yourself into something 20 times less comfortable.

    28. An easy-to-use portable steamer, because wrinkles belong in time, not your clothes.

    29. Chic-AF patent block heels that are just as comfy as flats but are a major step up (literally).
