    An AirPods case that looks like a jar of Nutella
    Amazon

    Promising review: "The minute I opened the package I knew I made the right choice. This case is thick and well-made. I get so frustrated when my case falls and the AirBuds go in every direction. A couple of days ago, the left ear fell out of the case and a car ran over it. That cost me $69+ so I decided to take care of that issue and get a case. I purposely dropped it after I put the case in and everything was intact.. I’m happy !!" —Karen

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are very cute! Both plants came wrapped in plastic for safekeeping during delivery. They were easy to put together; anyone could do it. They're very sturdy and very good quality for the price! The plants are obviously fake but that's a good thing because you won't have to worry about keeping them alive, LOL.

    The Qi

    This stunning piece was made in collaboration with homeware designer Sophie Lou Jacobsen.

    Promising review: "This teapot is everything I was hoping it would be and even better in person. I like the designer and of course when I saw she made such a pretty teapot, I had to have it. Can’t wait to try it out next time I have guests over. So so pretty." —Tasha

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This organic kitty grass kit is the answer to all of my problems. I found that when I would buy kitty grass at the store it was always nearly passed its prime or it just didn't look fresh. This kit changes everything. In just a day I started to see growth and within two days my cats had fresh, dewy kitty grass in front of their furry faces. I ordered the kit plus the replacements and I used one of the replacements in another kitty cat mug I had and it worked just as well. I love it all and can't wait to re-order. This is definitely a hit in my house!" —Carrie Scott

    8. A set of three adorable, machine-washable Swedish dish cloths — a practical yet thoughtful gift that'll confuse them every time they go to clean up a spill, because paper towels were never *this* cute.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I originally picked these up to use in lieu of nasty, nasty dishrags that invoke my inner THIS IS NOT CLEAN demon. Since then, I have used them for everything from cleaning the kitchen to wiping up spills. After use, just toss in the wash and they are ready to go again. They are the perfect size and do an excellent job on every task to which I have applied them. They come in a variety of fun prints and I have yet to wear one out. Paper towel usage has taken a real nosedive, which is a good thing given its relative scarcity at present." —sandra simpson-kraft

    A set of brushes—some are large and fluffy and some are smaller, and one is a fanned out brush
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I cannot wait to use these brushes! They are gorgeous! Absolutely stunning. I love unicorns and holographic things so these are perfect! The brush bristles are extremely soft! Hands down one of the softest I own. The handles are long and thin seem great for application. The case is holographic pink and of great quality. The Velcro on it seems a little cheap but it sticks so no complaints. I definitely recommend this item. They would make an awesome gift." —Pb&nelly

All of the wines were amazing, and it allowed me to taste types I haven't had much experience with. This is such a fun gift, and the labeling and branding makes it that much better!

    Hands holding the 12 squishies that look like sleeping cats
    Amazon

    Promising review: "So Soft. So squishy. So stretchy! These little guys are so satisfying to sit there and squish when you're feeling anxious or frustrated. The paint on their little faces is a little messy sometimes, but the way a stress ball looks isn't very important. I like that these are small enough to fit inside of your pocket, because so many stress balls are big and obvious and embarrassing." —So Soft. So squishy. So stretchy!

Depending on the size and texture of your tea, there might be some in the bottom of your mug. This doesn’t really bother me. I got it for myself, but it would make a cute gift or prize." —Beth Hogan
