    30 Things That Have NO Right To Be This Cool

    A shrimp neck pillow, grapefruit cooler bag, and other things with more charm and innovation than I know what to do with!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of Katy Perry's Geli Sandals adorned with a cute toe piece and adjustable straps. Truly, does it get any more darling than this?! It does not.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore these sandals! They smell so good that my entire closet smells like peaches. I ordered a 9 when I usually wear an 8, but I have another pair Katy Perry sandals and I can do both sizes. I find them extremely comfortable and get many compliments on them." —Queenof3hrts

    Get them from Amazon for $34.14+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 16 adorable styles),

    2. A reel viewer (oh, I can feel the nostalgia now!) you can customize with YOUR OWN PHOTOS. My childhood self is screaming, and so will your childhood bestie when they see this.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I bought two of these to give as gifts to my mom and to my best friend. For my mom I filled the reel with pictures from her life leading up to her granddaughter being born! She absolutely loved it. My best friend recently lost her father so I made a reel in memory of him and she loved it! And it's great that once you have the viewer you can order as many reels as you want!" —Lauren

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $29.95.

    3. A pretty gold fortune-telling book that'll make for a great conversation piece. It explores the meaning of names, color choices, zodiac signs, and so much more.

    Free People

    And if anything, it will look AMAZING sitting on your coffee table.

    Get it from Free People for $14.95 or Amazon for $11.89.

    4. A shade-shifting, multichrome nail polish for a galactic manicure that's genuinely out of this world — just like you! *Cue the, aaawwes.*

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This color is amazing. People stop me all the time wanting to know which salon I went to. They always think it's gel too. I have tried it over black nail polish and it does last longer and I've tried it with just two coats and it's still beautiful." —England86

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    5. A super gorgeous (???) coffin bath bomb you 100% need if your whole brand is: Pretty, but make it dead.

    The Mad Bombers / Etsy

    Get it from The Mad Bombers on Etsy for $10.

    6. And speaking of death, a skull cakelet pan with the spOOooOOky ability to make all types of food — from pizza pockets to cornbread to cake.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't let the price scare you. This pan is very good quality and even being the poor baker that I am, I have had great success every time I've used it. I made skullzones (calzones in the shape of skulls) and various beer breads. The definition of the skulls on the baked product is very impressive. Just a quick rinse with hot soapy water and it's clean. No sticking what-so-ever. I am definitely a fan of Nordic Ware now." —ShopperBee

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    7. A grapefruit cooler bag for the pool days you have to double-up on now that you have this cutie.

    Ban.do

    Promising review: "Absolutely loved this cooler. It's the perfect size for me to bring along on any and all trips. It easily holds car ride snacks and drinks, all while keeping them cool. Plus it's cute so." —KYLIE G.

    Get it from Ban.do for $32.

    8. A cocktail math poster that'll give you an easy cheat sheet while you're whippin' up any of these artisanal boozy drinks. Wall decor that's also functional? More of *that*, please!

    Everlong Print Co. / Etsy

    Get it from Everlong Print Co. on Etsy for $23.41+ (available in eight style and size combinations).

    9. A set of magical pressed glitters sure to deliver a long-lasting sequin shine you'll never want to take off.

    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.

    10. A Flamin' Hot Cheetos tube dress, because literally why would you *not* want to mix fashion with your favorite snack?

    Forever 21

    Get it on sale from Forever 21 for $20 (originally $27.99; available in sizes S-L).

    11. An avocado pool float featuring its very own seed that doubles as a beach ball. Your pool days are gonna ~guac~ hard with this hanging around.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Adorable! Material is thicker and should hold up well. Quickly inflated with air compressor but not so large you couldn't blow up by mouth. If you are looking for a unique pool float that nobody else has, this is it!" —Amanda Austin

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    12. 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

    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 $13.97.

    13. A Nicolas Cage sequin pillowcase your life and living room would be blessed to have around. Like, this is an actual *treasure*.

    Memeskins / Etsy

    No, I am not over this pillow nor will I ever be.

    Get it from Memeskins on Etsy for $24.33+ (available as a pillow cover or as a pillow).

    14. Kabob grilling baskets to make grilling and eating this delicious meal actually easy. Honestly, this is genius, I want them, and I don't even grill. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Uncommon Goods

    Hand wash with mild soap and warm water, and dry immediately.

    Promising review: "These unique and well-made baskets have made it easy and fun to try different combinations of proteins, fruits, and vegetables. Even our young grandchildren can make their kabobs safely." —Lainey

    Get a set of four from Uncommon Goods for $17.

    15. An ice wedge glass that'll keep your finest bourbon nice and chilled instead of watered down. It's what it deserves!!!

    Amazon

    It comes with the glass and the top mold for making the ice wedge.

    Promising review: "Purchased this as a gift and it was a huge hit. The packaging was really well designed and looked awesome. The product actually works too! It kept my whiskey drinks cold for the whole night without swapping out the cube. Surprisingly, the glass was actually really nice quality as well. Tip: Plan ahead of a party by freezing multiples! Freeze your ice and then pop it out, bag it, throw it in the freezer, and then freeze another! Works great for keeping your drinks cold for as long as the party lasts." —Loladex

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    16. A portable lounge chair you can literally take anywhere with you, from the beach to an outdoor concert. It packs into a tiny bag for transport and inflates magically within seconds. This is a life must-have if you ask me.

    Amazon, Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of this inflatable air lounger (#1 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt: "You just spin in a circle with them and suddenly you have a magically inflated chair? Seems unlikely. But now that I've tried them, I can confirm that they're (almost) that easy. It does take a couple of tries to get the hang of it, but pretty much anyone can figure it out in five to ten minutes.

    Seriously, these things are comfortable. Like being cradled in a waterbed taco. Everyone at the beach who tried them felt very relaxed and some people even took a little nap. It's also worth mentioning that they're pretty durable. Some of my friends took turns catapulting each other off it (we're adults) and they didn't burst." —Bek O'Connell

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four colors).

    17. A customized bracelet with a sweet message in your handwriting. Simply scan your words to the artisan on Etsy, and they'll create a signature bangle for you or your soul person (or both!).

    Silver Handwriting Jewelry / Etsy

    Get it from Silver Handwriting Jewelry on Etsy for $34.87 (available in eight sizes and three finishes).

    18. 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

    Get a set of four pairs from Amazon for $7.35+ (available in four styles).

    19. A stainless steel insert that'll transform your charcoal grill into a PIZZA OVEN. Yes, you can make pizza on your grill, and dinner is at your house!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really researched and shopped around before I purchased this from Amazon. I cooked my first pizza on it and it came out like a pro!! We will be using this especially during the summer as it pretty much stay in the triple digits here (the Mojave Desert). I cannot believe it took less than 10 minutes to bake an entire pizza. I recommend that you go to the KettlePizza website to get pointers from some of the celebrity chefs that they have videos of. These pointers really did help me to cook a perfect pizza!" —Kim Suzanne

    Get it from Amazon for $115.

    20. AND!! A non-stick pizza prep mat, because there is not a soul in the world who doesn't love pizza, and therefore, would not want this mat.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Really great product! Works on countertops and allows you to roll out dough (any kind, not just pizza) and get the dimensions accurate (round or square). Cleans up easily and works use after use." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    21. A set of cat gel roller pens that are A) stupid cute, B) work incredibly well, and C) waaay better than boring ol' pens.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These adorable pens are a hoot! I can now ensure the pen thieves stay away from my desk. The point is very fine. It writes smoothly with black ink. The colors, and the tiny faces are too cute. My favorite part is the little tail on the cap." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $6.99+.

    22. A double pack of The Golden Girls playing cards you *have* to gift to your Blanche, Sophia, Rose, or Dorothy...you just have to.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $15.

    23. A lemon purse your closet is thirsty for — trust me, I asked.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I needed a small crossbody bag to hold my phone and my wallet, and this is the perfect size! It will fit probably a portable battery and maybe one or two other small things as well, but it isn't big or bulky, like I feared it might be. It's just the right size for what I need! The colors are very bright and it's in excellent condition. I highly recommend this purse! It's adorable and feels very durable. I'm tempted to get the watermelon one just because!" —Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in lemon and watermelon).

    24. Tequila Mockingbird — an incredibly fun cocktail recipe book for those obsessed with fine literature, even finer cocktails, and the finest things in life. Period.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is perfect for the book nerd who loves a good cocktail. Or even if you just appreciate some good books and are mostly an alcohol enthusiast! The cocktail recipes are creative and delicious :) would make for a good gift." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $8.87.

    25. A neck pillow in the shape of a FREAKIN' SHRIMP. Why use a plain neck pillow when you could be sleeping on a shrimp one?!? This isn't up for debate, this pillow rocks.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This pillow changed my life. Birthday for someone you're in love with? Wanna show your teacher you appreciate them? Does your hairdresser give you solid looks for solid prices and you need a Christmas gift for them? Does your neck need support late at night when your playing scary video games in the dark at 2 a.m. when you should be studying for finals? This shrimp neck pillow was the answer to all those questions. Its so comfortable. It's so fashionable. It's so iconic. No one will ever disrespect you with this on your neck. If you have doubts, take my word for it. This pillow is where it's at." —McHoot

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    26. A giant unicorn sprinkler that shoots water out of its nose (adorable) to give you a refreshing mist on scorching hot days. Also, IT'S AN INFLATABLE UNICORN! What more do you want!

    Firebox

    Get it from Firebox for $62.99 (also available in a dinosaur sprinkler!).

    27. A large sideways initial necklace you can pair with literally any outfit for a dainty but statement-making accent. I don't know how those two things go so well together, but they do.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This necklace is more pretty in person. I love the large size of the letter pendant, chain length, and how it's attached to the chain to give it a offset angle once you put it on. It looks really trendy and personalized once you match it with a cute outfit." —Erin Delancy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+.

    28. A sleek tumbler (available in TONS of colors and sizes — though this "ocean quartz" is an obvious choice), and I didn't even know water bottles could be cool? This is fun and I want twenty of them.

    amazon.com

    It even comes with two lids and straws — one for cold beverages and a lid for warmer drinks (like coffee or tea!).

    Promising review: "I bought the all-black version and it's beautiful. Not only that, but the interchangeable tops and two plastic straws!!! I'm so excited to be saving the whales and looking amazing in the process. I should ask for commission on the sales of this because all of my coworkers want one now. Another great part that I don't think the description mentions, there's NO condensation AT ALL. I also accidentally left half an iced-coffee WITH CUBES in here for nine hours and when I came home the cubes were still there and the coffee was still cold. ALSO, I have tiny hands which sometimes makes holding things difficult. But the 16-oz size is tall and slim and easy to carry/fit in small bags. 20/10." —jacklynn ramos

    Get it from Amazon for $18.27+ (available in four sizes, 35 prints/colors, and customizable text).

    29. While were on the topic of hydration, rainbow stainless steel straws — they're not only environmentally-friendly, but simply darling. I love pretty, practical things, I sure do.

    amazon.com

    Each set comes with four bent straws, four straight straws, one cleaning brush, and a canvas pouch.

    Promising review: "Got them to eliminate the use of plastic straws for environmental purposes, and they’re great, I love them! They’re beautiful and feel very durable and honestly make my cold beverage taste crisper." —STINAXOXO

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two sizes).

    30. And a pizza beach towel, because why not?! How does one have a cooler towel than this? Spoiler: They don't.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love my towel. It is so cute, fashionable, and perfect for tanning on. Its microfiber technology helps refrain the sand from sticking to the towel which I absolutely adore! It’s perfect for gifting, I would highly recommend!" —Sharmaine Butac

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Me after that shrimp pillow:
