    Promising review: "Very cool. My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a Border Collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality a border collie. Come to find out he’s a shih tzu–pit bull mix, which makes way more sense." —dede123

Not for a second! Slept like a baby. And looked great crawling out of bed, too. Taking a break from vacation just to tell you how much I love these pajamas." —Damselfish

    Price: $1,297.99+ (available in 55-inch, 65-inch, and 75-inch TVs).

    Promising review: "I installed this TV about a week ago and have been very impressed after a week of use. Apart from the obvious (stunning picture quality and brightness), a few of the other features I love are the Smart TV interface, the One Connect box, and the design. I’ve given up my Apple TV, and I like being able to switch from app to app without having to go to a home screen. The One Connect box is fantastic for someone like me who doesn’t like clutter. The single, TINY fiber optic cable running from the TV to the box is pretty extraordinary as it powers the TV and provides all the inputs, and I can hide the One Connect box in a cabinet out of sight. Lastly the TV just looks great, from the almost-nonexistent bezel to the gorgeous side profile. No complaints!" —Kurt Bitter

    10. A Nespresso Lattissima that'll make a latte in just 40 seconds!! Mornings will never be the same.

    Pop in your espresso pod, fill the milk reservoir with the amount you'd like, and it'll froth and brew your latte (or cappuccino) in no time flat. And at around the price of 100 grande lattes from Starbucks, it won't take you long to get back your investment in money saved, tbh!

    Price: $68

    Promising review: "This was a HUGE bargain. First time trying this brand of hand cream, and indeed it's thick like a hand cream should be. It's not oily and absorbs rather quickly into the skin. The scents are diverse and pleasant and last even after a few hand washings (though the scents are not overwhelming.) The thing that makes this a real steal though is the tin it comes in! Beautiful design, large enough to make it reusable for things like cookies or homemade candies. So glad I purchased!" —Ashley

They don’t live near me and now they can download pictures of my grandchildren to my frame from wherever they are! What a great idea! The pictures are beautiful when displayed on the frame! When the pictures change automatically, it’s fun to see what comes up and brings back so many memories! If the pictures need adjustment in position, it’s very easy to edit right from your phone! Don’t hesitate buying this frame! You are going to love it!" —MJS

    It sets up in just *one* minute, quickly heats to 446° (apparently the ideal temperature for searing perfectly for flavor) — at the end, just clean the grill top and drip tray!

    Get it from Amazon for $279.95.

    Promising review: "In a word, awesome! The best kitchen appliance I own. I was skeptical. As a former Memphis in May contestant I think I know my way around a grill. I tested it with a large boneless skinless chicken breast. Cooked it for about 25 minutes to get to 160. Virtually no smoke! Really! The meat was perfectly charred, tender, juicy and very flavorful. While it was still on, threw on a piece of Texas toast. Again perfect. Clean up was quick and easy. I had covered the drip pan with heavy foil so just remove and toss. Put the grill top in sink and cleaned with a sponge and hot soapy water. After the base had cooled, but still quite warm, rubbed the sides down with a wet rag to remove any splatter. The whole cleaning process took about three minutes. After that I threw my George Forman in the garbage to make room for the Phillips!" —Richard Saucier

    27. A set of what might possibly be the softest bamboo sheets on earth. If you sleep hot and have cotton sheets, you need to try bamboo!

    They also hypoallergenic, safe on sensitive skin, and apparently resist dust mites and bedbugs. Sounds great!

    Price: $489+ (available in twin–California king, plus split king).

    Promising review: "Softest sheets on the planet! Seriously, can’t handle sleeping in anything else. The comforter is amazing and the only solution for my husband and me. He sleeps hot and I sleep cold and it’s been the only thing to serve both our needs. We had to buy the same set up for my daughter because she quickly realized that our bed was so much more comfortable." —Kimberly Smith

    28. Lobster. Truffle. Mac. and. Cheese. That's all you need to know.

    Ok, I'll tell you more. You get four servings (they come in reusable ceramic ramekins, so that helps with the price) and ship frozen to your door! Just heat in the oven (never microwave), and the mascarpone-cheddar sauce, white truffle oil, and tender Maine lobster will warm your soul.

    Price: $42.25 (for four eight-ounce ramekins)

    29. A body butter and dry body oil set for gentle, spa-level hydration to nourish and lock in moisture — all with the most amazing scents (like peony & white lily or warm vanilla bean & ylang-ylang)

    Price: $65 (available in five scents)

    30. An electricity-free water carbonator you'll want to display on your countertop all the time — that's how beautiful it is.

    It comes with the carbonator (aka that sleek brass thing), a PET bottle, and a manual — you have to buy the gas separately.

    Price: $199 (available in brass (pictured) and stainless steel).

    31. A striped faux fur vest for layering on top of sweaters for an added dose of stylish coziness or under oversized coats for pure torso warmth.
