    Promising review: "I absolutely love this game! I wanted to buy some cards to spice up the time that I had with my partner. What I love is that there are different levels depending on how you want the evening to go. There’s some wonderful cards to connect you, some fun cards to promote subtle intimacy, and some that are just hilarious that stretch your boundaries. All in all, we love using these and you usually don’t have to go through too many cards before feeling intimately connected.

    Promising review: "Yes, it's great for coffee and that's been reviewed by many.

    Promising review: "Excellent adventurous flavors of chocolate that I would never have thought to try myself. I originally got them for Valentine’s Day, but was so tempted I open them up myself. They came well packaged in a red gift box, with red ribbon. So very giftable, but also the bars are all individually wrapped, so it’s also good for sharing." —Collin

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I got one as a present and I loved it so much I had to buy one for my husband because he was envious. First, it's well-made, sturdy plastic so it stays upright and doesn't wobble. Second it holds two regular-sized crunchy tacos upright and ready to go. This way I can pre-make three tacos, one to eat and two for the dino to hold. The fillings in the dino tacos stay inside the tacos while I am eating the first taco... Seriously, I love my Triceratacos." —ChristinaG

Before I received this weighted blanket, according to my Fitbit, I was averaging about four and a half hours of sleep per night due to pain. My first night with this blanket and I slept more than seven hours!! Same for my second night. This is so comfortable and comforting. I’m recommending this to everyone I know!" —Jamie Eubanks

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The 4K version has the new upgraded Alexa remote, which is such a triumph compared to the older Alexa remote, due to the fact that they've finally added power, mute, and volume buttons. Hooray! No more scrambling around for your TV or cable company remote control when you need to change the volume in a hurry. The voice controls are also more sophisticated in this version, so that I can actually tell Alexa to 'switch back to HDMI 1' or 'switch back to cable TV' rather than toggling the Input button on your TV or cable remote. The user interface is snappier and more responsive all around, unlike the older Fire Stick, which occasionally is slightly laggy. It's crisp and clear, and intuitive to operate — and setup is a piece of cake."Replicant

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    19. A plush 100% Turkish cotton bathrobe that they'll want to spend all day in because it feels like wearing a soft hug (not as soft as your actual hugs though).

    Parachute

    Promising review: "I’m always hesitant to buy garments online. I had a very specific type of terry cloth robe in mind and decided that I would give Parachute a try. I’m so happy that I did, this robe was exactly what I was looking for and I love it! Soft, comfortable, and lounge-worthy. I highly recommend this robe, the quality is top notch." —Marcella J

    Get it from Parachute for $99 (available in sizes S–XL and four colors).

    21. A pair of Ugg slippers with soft wool lining to keep their toes warm and cozy so they stop constantly accosting you with their freezing feet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the BEST slippers you will ever own. Once you have these, you will never want any other kind. I would recommend a slightly darker color although the gray ones are beautiful. I tend to spill coffee and some of the drip marks won't come out of this light color. My second pair is a chocolate brown to eliminate that issue. I have two pairs now because I love them so much that I never want to wear anything else!" —Emily Rohde

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95+ (available in five colors).

    Promising review: "Holy buckets!!! This speaker is AMAZING!! Bought it for listening to Pandora at the lake and don’t regret spending the money at all. Until you hear it, you’d never believe such remarkable sound could come out of a little speaker. Crisp, sharp tones, and it holds a charge good enough to listen all day long. Well worth the price." —Paula

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very classy looking diffuser that goes great with the decor in my house — it’s white, stone, and somewhat discreet. It’s not too big so it doesn’t look bulky in a room, but it’s also not too small where it doesn’t diffuse the scent throughout the space. It was very easy to set up, and my favorite feature about this whole thing, aside from the looks, is that it is very quiet! Great purchase!" —Tambra Riddle
