Promising review: "The chocolate was a big hit as a gift. We even bought a box (well, a few boxes) for ourselves. I love how you can buy a box of just one flavor on their website, and the subscription is a great way to try new flavors — we never saw the same chocolate twice. We must have tried over 60 so far!" —Kevin

Promising review: "The material is super soft and silky. I bought a lot of other sleepwear at the same time and this material is the best, hands down. These are also better quality than the others I bought. This set fits so well. It's so comfortable to lounge in and the the lace trim makes it very classy. I absolutely love it!" —JouJou Minoux

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm in love with this little guy. I heated it in the microwave for only 30 seconds, and it stayed warm for almost an hour. The recommended microwave time is 60 seconds, so I'm sure it will stay warm for even longer in the future. The smell is great and not too strong. My son hasn't put it down since we got it in the mail, so it looks like I'll be ordering another for myself!" —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "These are super cute, fit well, and are comfortable! They came packaged nicely (each pair was clipped together on the top and bottom, then they were all bound together with a ribbon and in a resealable pouch). I bought them as a gift, but I found something else for the person. Suffice it to say I'm glad I got to keep them!" —SS

Promising review: "I love these brushes! They are very soft and don't shed at all. They're extremely durable and perfect for everyday use.

Promising review: "I got these to replace all of the stem glasses which perished at the hands of clumsy friends and over-exuberant pets. They're wonderful! They haven't broken yet, I don't worry that they will shatter when I wash them, they feel substantial, and they look great. The best part is that they're affordable, and no cats or friends have prevailed over these yet." —elkile

Get a set of four from Amazon or Jet for $16.95.

10. A knockout party dress that's sheer perfection.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I ordered this dress as a last-minute look for a charity event and it was PERFECT! I will be wearing it a lot. The fit is perfect and it's unbelievably comfortable.

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

11. A velvet throw blanket so snuggly, it could replace your SO.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This throw is great! It's so soft, and the color is deep and bright at the same time. I keep it on my sofa so it's always in reach, and it looks very pretty hanging over the back of the couch. It's a good size for one person, and I didn't have any issues when I washed it — it didn't pill, shed, or fade." —Kt I.

Promising review: "This robe is so soft and smooth. The pockets are nice and deep, the hems hit exactly like in the picture (at the elbows and mid-thigh), and the inside tie is a nice touch. It's a great robe for the price." —Rebecca Neel

17. The Satisfyer Pro 2, which is possibly the best gift anyone in possession of a vagina can give themselves.

amazon.com

Your new bedside BFF is fully waterproof and comes with a convenient magnetic charger.

Promising review: "It’s a beautiful and sleek device — it's smooth, with curves in all the right places to be able to cradle it in the palm of your hand and keep it in place. The fifth setting was incredible for me. Imagine your spot getting hit and you telling your partner “right there” and they ACTUALLY stay right there! Unfortunately, I can’t vouch for the remaining settings (there are 11) because I never made it that far. I think I may have passed out. Or maybe I left my body for a moment and came back. Or got abducted by aliens. There is a blank space in my memory shortly thereafter so I’m still not sure." —Sho Dan

Get it from Amazon for $47.95.

18. And perhaps some sexy tunes to complete your me-time atmosphere, like Miguel's latest album, "War and Leisure."

Promising review: "My favorite song? All of them! I keep the whole album on repeat. Miguel is the shit!" —Erin

19. Splurge-worthy Bluetooth headphones for the times when you just need to be alone with your playlist.

amazon.com

These beautiful babies are collapsible and come with a carrying case, because you won't be able to be apart from them for even a second.

Promising review: "This is a great pair of headphones. I really love the quality of the bass and acoustics. These have 40 hours of battery life, which is INSANE! You can basically listen to music on and off for two weeks without a charge. If they do die, you can fast charge them for five minutes and get two to three hours of play time. The Bluetooth connectivity is very simple with Apple products, and you can travel up to 300 feet away from your cell phone while wearing these and the music will not break up. That's much farther than most other Bluetooth devices." —MindSeedTV

Get them from Amazon for $219.99 (available in 14 colors) or Walmart for $219 (available in 9 colors).

20. A hella refreshing rosewater spray to wake yourself — and your skin — up on dreary winter days.

amazon.com

People swear by this stuff (it has over 2,500 positive Amazon reviews), which can be used in tons of different ways. It can be a pretty-smelling pick-me-up when you're feeling sleepy, a makeup base, a remedy for dry, red skin, a frizz-prevention hair spray, and more.

Promising review: "I LOVE this spray. It smells like Turkish Delight to me (because of the rose extract), which is awesome. I spray my hair with it when it's wet and I have next to no frizz when it dries. I also use it on my face after a deep exfoliation, and it soothes and restores my skin and keeps oil at bay for the rest of the day." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon or Jet for $7.

21. A fun animal coloring book that's a totally sweet (and under $5) stress reliever.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a cute book of animal designs by artists from around the world, which means it has a variety of styles within one book. Most designs are fairly simple to color but have enough detail to make coloring them fun. My colored pencils work well with the paper." —iiiireader

Now, with this roller, I'm able to get the same relief without the weekly cost. It really does work wonders! It's definitely one of my better buys and I often recommend it to people I know." —Amazon Customer

The machine comes with two cones and a sugar scoop and works with sugar or hard candy, so you can create all sorts of flavors.

Promising review: "I'm so glad I bought this. I put it on my kitchen island and it stayed put the whole time. It made a very good amount of candy from one scoop of sugar, and did it quickly, too.

shop.nordstrom.com

Promising review: "I absolutely love this bag! It's the perfect shape —

roomy enough on the inside to fit everything you need, but small enough to not feel awkward and bulky as a crossbody. The small handle at the top is so cute, and the long strap can be neatly tucked away inside the bag if you want more of a clutch than a crossbody." —Amie123456789

After all that she’s been through, her persistent pursuit of purpose is awe-inspiring." —Cynthia Turner

Get it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble for $12.99+, or from a local bookseller through Indiebound here.

43. Or perhaps a corgi bouquet, because seriously, who needs a big romantic flower arrangement? Just deliver me a snuggly pile of dogs.
