    1. A baby Groot planter you definitely need to put some music on for when you're not home. You know he loves to dance.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh this is SO CUTE. Groot looks fantastic and it fit my fake succulents (I can’t keep plants alive lol). I highly recommend to any Guardians fan." —Lindsay

    Price: $6.99 (available in eight colors)

    2. A five-piece set of rose gold makeup brushes with super soft, densely packed synthetic hair for seamless application and blending. Plus, they'll look gorgeous displayed on your vanity.

    Promising review: "After seeing these type of makeup brushes plastered all over Instagram, I decided to try them out. They were cheap enough so I figured if I didn't like 'em, no harm really done. Well, I LOVE them. I haven't used my other makeup brushes or my sponge since. The two larger ones I use for liquid foundation and under-eye concealer. The largest one is also fantastic to smooth out & blend your makeup look. The three smaller ones I use to contour and highlight. These work with both powder and liquid. I also feel like these are more sanitary than the beauty blender I was using every day (though I cleaned it often). I can't believe I waited this long to try them!" —Liz

    Price: $9.29 (for a set of five)

    3. Acrylic drop earrings for a statement look that won't hang heavy from your lobes.


    Price: $7.99 (available in 11 colors and shapes).

    Promising review: "I have a hard time with statement jewelry because they are typically pretty heavy and I end up having to take them off quickly. These however are very light weight. I wore them to dinner over the weekend and didn't have any issues with them. They are very cute and went perfect with my outfit. I would recommend these for a pop of color to any outfit!" —Lindsey Barlow

    4. A silicone earbud organizer that'll end the nightmare of tangled cords once and for all, keeping your purse or pocket more organized and helping the wires last longer.

    Promising review: "We all know the frustration of spaghetti tangled cords. This thing is perfect. Wrap around, button in place, done. Holds the whole spaghetti mess neatly and makes it easier to use later. Love it. Bought two, gave one to my sister. She loves hers, too. She uses earbuds, I use these over the ear headphones. Works great on both." —C. Posley

    Price: $6.99 (available in five colors and also in packs of two)

    5. Or an accessory kit with everything you need if you have AirPods: a silicone case, carabiner (so you can clip it to your purse or jacket), silicone hooks to KEEP the darn things in your ears, and a silicone strap so you can wear them around your neck.


    Price: $6.99 (available in 11 colors)

    Promising review: "I enjoy dresses, but most don’t have pockets so I was always trying to stuff my earbuds into my clutch or my bra. The carabiner that is attached makes it so much easier to clip to the side of my clutch. The band is nice for cleaning days where you want to rock out but have littles constantly asking you questions. When it’s on, I don’t worry about dropping one in the toilet or sink when I take it out to answer a question." —ajmarcott

    6. A set of four succulent enamel pins to add a touch of whimsy to your backpack or denim jacket. Just be careful not to poke yourself with the cactus one!

    Price: $5.99

    7. A wooden elephant desk buddy so you can keep your cell phone at a glance and store your favorite writing utensils.

    Price: $9.69

    Price: $7.99

    9. A moisture-wicking athletic tank that'll just tell it like it is. You're fabulous.

    Price: $8+ (available in sizes 1X–5X and five other styles)

    10. An incredibly soft plush pet blanket your furry friend will love (maybe even more than they love you).

    Promising review: "Super duper soft blanket. I got the blue version for my husky. She absolutely loves it. It's a thinner blanket so it's not too warm for her thick coat either :) The large is the perfect size for her to snuggle with. She sleeps with it on top of her, and drags it around the house wherever she goes." —Sam

    Price: $7.99+ (available in sizes S–L and three colors)

    12. Panasonic earbuds in a bright color to make finding 'em in your bag or your room so much easer — and at a low price so you won't feel bad about eventually losing them.

    Promising review: "Compared to MANY other earbuds that I've had that cost $75, $100, $150, these sound as good as any of them. I'm astounded! I use these for running. I figured for $8, I could afford to sweat up a few of these and replace them whenever I needed to. I'VE RUN 1,500 MILES WITH THESE in the last year and a half!! I've gone through four pairs of New Balance shoes, two iPod Shuffles, three pairs of sunglasses and am on the SAME set of earbuds!! And, THEY STILL SOUND GREAT!" —Gene Goodell

    Price: $9.49 (available in eight colors)

    13. A pair of affordable and modern cat-eye sunnies that'll prove it's hip to be ~square~.


    Price: $3.60 (available in three colors)

    14. A Milani felt-tip eyeliner with an ergonomic design so you can get a ~handle~ on mastering the ultimate cat eye.,

    Promising review: "OK, I had read about this on a blog and decided to try it. I am terrible at lining my eyes. I was so pleasantly surprised! This fits in your hand so nicely and does an excellent job of lining. Thin or thick lines, and all smooth and neat. This was so worth the purchase!" —D. Collins

    Price: $5.60

    15. A stainless steel photo mobile to display all your favorite memories in the most playful way possible.

    Pro tip: one reviewer also hung paper origami cranes from this, and it looks adorable.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best things I have EVER bought. I buy the 3x3 picture prints of my favorite candid cell phone shots and then display them on this mobile. It swivels and moves with gentle air movement. A good trick is to get some tape and hang the pictures double sided. Beautiful way to display life's everyday moments!" —Ava and Harry's Mom

    16. A fan-favorite Wet brush that'll detangle even the most stubborn hair...WITHOUT ripping it from your scalp.

    Promising review: "Okay, I was skeptical, I've used all sorts of brushes on my hair all my life, never had any make any big difference on my easily tangled hair. I still don't understand what the difference is with this brush, but it just glides so effortlessly through my wet, tangled hair — it's like magic! After so many years of struggling with my hair and using conditioning sprays to help speed the process, it's crazy that this brush just goes right through!" —L. H. Christenson

    Price: $6.05+ (available in six colors)

    17. A DOUBLE FEATURE DVD of the two non-Disney animated classics Anastasia and Thumbelina so you can always have them ready to watch when you need it. It's like comfort food. It's time to reignite your crush on Dimitri.

    Promising review: "These straws are infinitely reusable. That's great! Really cool colors, LOVE that they get cold when used to drink iced drinks, kinda extra refreshing. I keep a couple at work and use everyday, I have had co-workers come into my office and fawn over how wild the iridescent color is. So cool factor 10/10 and environmentally conscious factor 10/10. Why are you still reading this and not already hitting the purchase button!!" —Scubagirl

    19. Initial cufflinks for a thoughtful-looking gift without a whole lot of effort.

    Promising review: "I purchased these as a wedding gift for my future stepson and they exceeded my expectations. The size is substantial and the letters are solid with a beautiful silver finish.

    20. A challenging and cool-looking Rubik's cube–style puzzle that'll look even more art-like before it's completed.

    Promising review: "I was getting anxious about this cube getting here but after about three weeks, it finally arrived and man is it quite the looker. It looks and feels extremely nice. The caps come off with ease and stay in their places like members of the queens guard. Turns great and is aesthetically very pleasing. 10/10 recommend. I mean just get already, what is there to lose When you're at the last moments of your life you're really gonna wish you'd spent the four bucks, so just do it. I mean look how badass it looks in my hand." —Amazon Customer

    22. A floral skinny tie to make compliments bloom wherever you go.,

    Promising review: "I bought the four-pack because I couldn't decide on a color but the navy and gray were my favorites. I ended up wearing the navy to a work-related event and received so many compliments. For the price, you really can't beat it. If you're looking for a floral tie, look no further!" —Foster

    Price: $9.99 (available in 20 colors; also available in sets of four ties)

    Price: $9.95 each. You can also get a set of all four for $32 (aka you save $1 per mask)

    Promising review: "I love these because great skin isn't limited to just your face and neither should the products that facilitate it! These definitely infuse the area with essence like a facial sheet and offer a moisturizing, gently tightening effect so you know they're working! I have tried other products designed for the same area and these were by far the best and least messy." —fountainsoda

    24. A cozy beanie to cuddle up under (while covering up your five-day-old greasy hair).,

    Promising review: "This beanie is so cute and pretty thick considering how much it costs. I thought the material used to make this would be cheaper but this is really good quality beanie. I also have a fairly large head and this beanie doesn't look over stretched when i wear it." —Mary Noniscan

    Price: $6.98 (available in six colors)

    25. A silver-plated cubic zirconia ring for when you're traveling and don't want to bring your real jewelry — or just want a pretty little something without spending a whole lot.

    Promising review: "This ring is so gorgeous. I bought this ring to wear on days when my fingers are swollen and my wedding rings are too tight. I wasn't expecting much from such an inexpensive piece of jewelry, but I was floored by how sparkly and "real" it looks in person. I'm afraid I like it more than my real rings and my husband suspects. Shhhh!" —Mama on the Move

    Price: $8.99 (available in ring sizes 5–9)

    26. A knotted, pearl embellished headband to make second-, third-, or fourth-day hair look like a fancy updo.


    Price: $8.99 (available in 10 colors)

    Promising review: "DON’T HESITATE! BUY! Very great quality and the pearls are on there strong. It fits great and tight holds your hair back perfectly! I’ll be buying other colors. I got creamy white for starters and literally goes with anything!" —Ryan

    27. A book of scratch-off landmark nightscapes for a whole new level beyond adult coloring books.


    These are just like those rainbow scratch-off sheets you (and I) loved as a kid, but WAY cooler. Just follow along the guide lines to reveal the glowing cityscape.

    Price: $7.98

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! It is a great activity when I'm just wanting to relax, but still do something. Highly recommend." —Jillian

    28. An adorable and colorful soap dish with a draining design so the bottom of your bar can dry rather than slowly disintegrate.


    Price: $2.10 (available in four colors)

    Promising review: "Because artisan soaps are so soft, I have to keep them as dry as possible in my shower. I actually put this outside my shower stall on the ledge & only bring it in when I’m bathing. It works great both in and outside the bath to keep the bars dry. Great price point!" —ThereSheGoesShoppingAgain
