    4. A set of magical pressed glitters sure to deliver a long-lasting sequin shine you'll never want to take off, because glitter just makes everything a little better.

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    Promising review: "With some right skills you can make these eyeshadows look pretty glamorous! Most important tip is to use couple of different eye primers and several eyeshadows prior to using this glitter. You won’t achieve much just by putting this glitter on your eyelids without priming them." —ElenorY

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88.

    5. A pretty pack of encouragement cards featuring positive messages you can read to yourself when the days feel long and tiring.

    Promising review: "I originally got these for myself as pick-me-ups to deal with my depression, but I have found my coworkers enjoy them as well. I've left them anonymously for a couple of people, and they are always really appreciative. The card quality is similar to playing cards, and the colors are incredibly vibrant and beautiful!" —Heather

    You get a random selection from the six styles they offer!

    Promising review: "OMG! Absolutely adorable, well made, fit great! My cats are plotting their revenge as we speak. Best laugh I’ve had in the longest time" —Sara

    Get it from Amazon for $6.75.

    8. A tarot card set for beginners that'll give you a fun new hobby to pour your attention into.

    Orgenonians / amazon.com

    The essentials set comes with a 78-card deck and a book that explains the fortune telling elements of each card.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for one of my teenagers a year ago. Honestly, this is ideally suited for a rookie. It gives the beginner an idea of tarot cards in general. It's an affordable and nice starter set. Don't get me wrong...this kit is appropriate for beginners and seasoned souls. I only mean if you're looking for an introductory set this one is great. My 16-year-old loves it." —Oregonians

    Get it from Amazon for $14.65.

    9. Or! A calligraphy starter book so you can improve your penmanship and pretend that the world isn't, you know, on fire and such.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this book. So easy to follow along and practice. Love that there's a sample for you to trace and space to practice right after. Someone mentioned half the book is blank pages but in reality, it's space to practice and I actually like it. I like to compare my handwriting side by side with the example." —Lourdes

    Get it from Amazon for $18.69, and don't forget to grab a calligraphy brush pen for $5.

    10. A pair of cow crew socks to make you smile every time you look down at your feet.

    ModCloth

    Get them from ModCloth for $12.

    11. A pretty jade roller, because you shouldn't have to hit up an expensive spa to pamper yourself.

    Amazon

    Jade rolling can help with eye puffiness, as well as tightening and brightening of your skin. BuzzFeed's Rachel Miller investigated these claims herself to see how they held up, and spoiler — it worked:

    "My immediate reaction was, 'Wait, is this what my face is supposed to look like?!' My eyes were suddenly so prominent in my face — in a good way!! — and everything looked visibly brighter and tighter — again, in a very good way. I suddenly just looked so awake, so healthy, so...Disney princess-like? (A half-black divorced American princess whose name happens to be Rachel, let’s say.) At 6:10 am with no makeup on? When just a couple of minutes ago I did not look that way at all? I was legitimately shocked." —Rachel Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $18.97.

    12. And speaking of pampering, a hydrating holographic you deserve to treat yourself to, especially if you've been under a lot of pressure lately.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really, really like this mask. When you apply the mask to your face it looks like shimmering pearls. What I really like about the product is that it is a peel-off mask. Depending on how thickly you put the product on your face it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful. I then follow with a moisturizer (that's just me). I use this product once a week. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants younger- and better-looking skin." —Grandma Fran

    Get it from Amazon for $23 (available in four mask types).

    13. An empowering book filled with GORGEOUS illustrations of 50 legendary goddesses so when you're stressed about the state of the world, you can flip through this and feel empowered again.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ann always smashes it with her illustrations. This book is packed with heart and soul. It's perfect if you are looking for a coffee table book with summarized information on goddesses from different areas of the world. It even gives you tips on channeling each goddess; I think that is my favorite detail. Incredible follow up to Bad Girls. She's a great artist to look up to." —Cherie Adan

    Get it from Amazon for $13.56.

    14. A neon rainbow light for brightening up any rainy day, at least inside the house.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful rainbow that’s the perfect size. I love that you can plug it into a USB cord AND/OR you can use batteries. Yay! So easy to use and it gives off just the right amount of light. It’s very well made and I plan to purchase more." —Suzie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.17 (available in five styles).

    15. A set of 24 cat paw chair socks that'll not only protect your floors from damage, but your heart from growing cold and jaded. *Squeals with joy*

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG, these are super cute and adorable! They come four in a pack. Very easy to put on, I do suggest that you slide the paw more towards the front so that it bends better when the chair is sitting up. The fact that it protects my floors and look like kitty paws has me sold." —JL

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in four colors).

    16. A golden retriever window decal that's *almost* as good as the real thing. Consider this the pet you've wanted, but without all the responsibility.

    Amazon

    I mean, how could you NOT smile at this as you get in your car?

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE my adorable dog! It looks adorable on my car and people constantly comment when I’m in a parking lot or smile and laugh when they drive by. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this decal, who my kids have named Murphy!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    17. An underwater disco light to make bath time a mini party because you're worth celebrating.

    Firebox

    Get it from Firebox for $10.29.

    18. A double-sided birthstone and zodiac puzzle that'll get you lost in some good gem zen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great puzzles! A non-puzzler might be frustrated by having color on both sides (so it takes a few minutes longer to flip over the pieces) but both puzzles were gorgeous and truly enjoyable to put together. Great gift!!" —Natalie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.93 (available in five other prints).

    19. A mega cozy robe to curl yourself up in when you need to feel warm and relaxed.

    American Eagle

    Get it on sale from Aerie for $41.96 (originally $59.95; available in sizes XXS-XXL), or something similar from Amazon for $24.99.

    20. And a pair of faux-fur slides because nothing can beat kicking off your shoes at the end of the day and slipping into these warm cocoons.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These slippers feel like a hug on my feet. They have a hard bottom so you can wear them out. The top part is so incredibly soft!!! I love these!" —Cyndi Lundeberg

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes 5-10 and five colors).

    21. A set of dog corn-on-the-cob holders sure to give you a laugh every time you break these out for dinner. Look at the little butts! Look at them!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are so cute and whimsical! I have two sets we use for summer BBQs. They are always a hit! Perfect for anyone who loves doxies and has a sense of humor! I have had my first set for about four years and they still look brand new." —Abby

    Ann And Joy / Etsy

    Get it from Ann And Joy on Etsy for $20+ (available in five jewelry tops).

    25. A Disney and Thomas Kinkade adult coloring book with a colored-in version so you have some ~inspiration~ while your coloring away. Ahh, coloring can be so therapeutic.

    Jessica R. / amazon.com

    Many reviewers mentioned the paper can be too thin for certain markers, so if you're a newb (like me) it would be best to start with colored pencils. Get a 72-set for $29.99.

    Promising review: "This coloring book is absolutely stunning! A must have for all Disney and Thomas Kinkade fans alike! I live the colored paintings next to the line art. It gives inspiration if you're feeling a little overwhelmed with color choices. This is a really well put together coloring book!" —Jessica R.
