    2. A 52-week guided gratitude journal so you can take some time every morning to remember everything that's going well for you right now.


    Promising review: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, that didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, that was straightforward, in short, exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept and I've only being doing it for a week, but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for, find myself adding lines below the three provided, and writing in the margins...all because I want to." โ€”silkeymilkey

    4. A stylish 14 oz. vacuum insulated stainless steel tumbler to fill with wine after a long, productive day.,

    Promising review: "Well made, durable wine glass. Let's not forget just how GORGEOUS this thing is! The picture doesn't do justice to the glitter, it really shimmers in the sun. Tested and proven on the lake this past weekend! It truly keeps any liquid cold โ€” more than just wine. I've even seen some use it as an ice cream dish (will definitely be trying that out)." โ€”Roxmywhitesox

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 31 colors).

    5. A reversible shag and sherpa throw blanket to make you the coziest person ever while you read a good book or watch your fave show, because you deserve some chill time.


    Promising review: "I bought the grey fur blanket and HOLY SMOKES this is the most comfortable blanket I think Iโ€™ve ever bought. Was meant to be decor and not really used but I canโ€™t keep it off of me, itโ€™s so soft. I was very surprised by how good of quality it seems, especially for the price. Big enough to cover two people up easily. Iโ€™d compare the feeling of the faux fur to something like bunnyโ€™s fur, and the sherpa is very soft as well. Has some decent weight to it and Iโ€™ve found it to be very warm so far. All in all, good for the money." โ€”Kaylee Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four sizes and 37 colors).

    6. A wireless bluetooth karaoke microphone with controllable LED lights guaranteed to help you loosen up and have some fun after you've finished all your chores (or during, we won't tell).

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my daughter for Christmas, but let me tell you the WHOLE family has been using this microphone. This thing is a party on the go!! The speaker is unbelievably clear for the size and price point. We had no trouble linking up the Bluetooth, it synced right out of the box โ€” we didn't even have to read any complicated directions. Would for sure purchase again. It is so much fun!! The blinking lights and ability to play basically any song you can get on your device makes this microphone well worth the money." โ€”saracourtneyw

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in five colors).

    7. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer hot air brush for when you finally get the perfect haircut and you're feeling inspired to give yourself weekly blowouts.,

    Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hair dryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look." โ€”SAHM2011

    Get it from Amazon for $35.65+ (available in four colors).

    12. A pack of velvet hangers, because you actually cleaned out your closet, donated some clothes, and it's time for all of those hangers to match.

    Promising review: "These hangers are seriously low profile enough to give you close to twice the amount of space in your closet. Probably not necessarily a good thing, but I revamped my closet with these instead of donating a large portion of clothes to Goodwill (although I had already donated two other closets full until a friend recommended these hangers) and now my clothes all fit neatly! And they are sturdy, no more cracking hangers when you pull off an item of clothing in a tizzy. I'm very happy with my purchase of a few packs of these hangers. It cost pennies in comparison to a closet organizer system." โ€”Lisa427

    Promising review: "These pillow cases are so soft and cozy! The color is true to the picture, a nice deep red, and the material itself is cozy and velvety. The little pom-poms are actually very much secured to the pillow, and I've never experienced any of them coming loose, and I am using them daily. The zippers are very well hidden without being difficult to use, too." โ€”Al

This makes the perfect present for family, friends, coworkers... really whoever you are buying this for will love you for it! And so will their family members that try it out. It's really addicting to use. I'm typically running mine on a daily basis for a couple hours at a time. It also worked great with the car adapter during a long road trip โ€” although I think I would be too relaxed to use this while driving!

When I bought them, I was worried about the picture scraping off if they needed sharpening, but there is a space between the blade and the picture to prevent the picture from scraping off.
