    12. The Jeopardy! Book of Answers, which has *all* the questions and answers from 15 iconic episodes (including celebrity games, Ken Jennings in action, and the man vs. machine showdown with IBM's Watson) — plus untold stories, behind-the-scenes photos, and info about the contestants.

    15. A pair of low-key glittery black bike shorts great for trying out the athleisure-inspired trend without sacrificing your sparkly style.

    24. A set with two pairs of acrylic dino earrings that'll make your heart ~saur~ every time you wear them.

    25. A multi-talented spoon rest you'll wonder how you lived without. Use it to protect your counter from drips, strip herbs AND grate ginger or garlic for easy flavor additions.

    26. A few sheets of LED-dimming stickers to finally keep those pesky router, TV, clock, and other electronic lights from ruining your ~room of complete darkness~.

    31. A pair of jumbo-size pearl clips to jazz up even the most boring hair day — or, you know, distract from how dirty your hair is. Statement-making hair accessories are a super big trend rn!

    34. A two-in-one colander and salad spinner so you can wash and dry your lettuce with just one tool. Press the button on the handle and it'll shut so you can shake the contents to dry without losing a single leaf.

    35. Slip-on knit sneaks that'll let you be ~flexible~ enough to stay comfy *and* stylish at the same time. Miracles happen, once in a while.
