    7. A skull-shaped cakelet pan you can whip up treats in after successfully arranging your five-person friend group Halloween costume.

    Amazon

    Some reviewers used this to make stuffed pizzas (aka skullzones), and they look INCREDIBLE.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    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. 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 Nordicware now." —ShopperBee

    Green Frog Prints

    Get it from Green Frog Prints on Etsy for $10+ (available in four sizes).

    9. A stylish cold brew maker, because you need to feel awake in the morning now that you've scored that awesome job.

    Amazon

    The fine mesh will keep pesky grounds from getting in your coffee. This pitcher has an airtight rubber seal to keep those fridge smells out and the coffee flavor in. And it's dishwasher safe!

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I love cold brewed coffee! The biggest problem with making iced or cold coffee was the watered down taste that I had when I added ice to freshly brewed coffee. This solved that problem! This product is incredibly easy to use, and the coffee is delicious! All it takes is some coarsely ground coffee, water and time to brew. I followed the directions, placing the coffee and water in the Takeya. In less than three minutes, I had the Takeya loaded and set it in the fridge to brew overnight. While I missed the smell of fresh coffee brewing the next morning, I got over it pretty fast when I tasted the cold brew. So happy to be able to enjoy my favorite brew without the acidic taste. I am thinking about buying a second one so that I can have a cup or two in the afternoon." —TennisVol

    My Starbucks cold brew habit cut back *significantly* when I bought this. Check out my review of this iced coffee maker for all the deets!

    10. A llama-shaped duster to keep you company after you've cleaned the house from attic to basement (or at least vacuumed your bedroom).

    Get it from Amazon for $13.01.

    Promising review: "Purchased this for my co-worker and I and we both love it! It does NOT spread dust around like some other feather dusters... this little guy leaves nothing behind and works great!" —Autumn Birch

    Promising review: "Hilarious and awesome for any fan of The Office. Got lots of laughs from coworkers. I thought it would be flimsy but it’s actually well built!" —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $17.09.

    Promising review: "This was a great deal. I loved every single illustration in the book. The artwork is classic and gorgeous. The botanical prints are on semi-glossy, thicker-than-average paper. I framed my favorite ones and used them as artwork on the gallery wall in my living room. They look fantastic! I'm very happy with this purchase!" —Shizarla13

    18. A four-pigment holographic highlighter palette so you can show off all you've learned from those YouTube makeup tutorials. They're basically educational videos at this point.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89.

    Promising review: "Absolutely a stunning value! For the price, these super light and silky highlighters cannot be beat!! I love the ever-so-soft and subtle shimmer and glow they give my complexion. They are not in the least garish. The product itself is finely milled. I believe the ultra micro fine texture of the powder is what allows the subtle prismatic effect!! I simply was delighted with this product!!!" —Susan H.

    19. A heatable sloth pillow to use when you've made it through a day sitting at the office with cramps. Now it's time to cuddle up with this warm little fellow and soothe your uterus in front of the television.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    Promising review: "This little guy is so soft and warms up nicely. Perfect for cramps or sore muscles! Love it so much I bought the sloth and the llama." —Teexo

    20. A Dash mini waffle iron for when you stop ~waffling~ on that big decision you've been putting off. Leslie Knope would be proud.

    Amazon

    This lil' bb makes Eggo-ish size waffles you can easily freeze and toss in the toaster yourself on busy mornings, too!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in eight colors).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    Promising review: "I ordered three of these when some mimosa loving friends were coming over for brunch. These are great. Nice quality and holds almost a bottle of champagne but not comically large. Well packaged for shipping." —Lauren Knowles

    22. A Mary Berry graphic tee so you can celebrate viewing all 50 episodes of The Great British Bake Off on Netflix. That's totally an accomplishment, right?

    Fancy Feast Life

    We miss you Mary!

    Get it from Fancy Feast Life on Etsy for $24.99 (availalbe in sizes XS–2X).

    May I recommend pairing with the Great British Bake Off coloring book? Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    23. A triceratops tortilla shell holder, because you got through Tuesday (which felt like living through the whole Cretaceous period) and now you deserve tacos.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $11.94 (also available in a taco T-rex and a Stegosaurus whose spine holds nachos).

    Promising review: "Ok, I realize this is kind of a ridiculous item in theory. More like a gag than an actual useful item, right? Wrong-o! 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. Juices sink to the bottom where they can soften the fold so the taco shell doesn't break in half after the first bite rather than leaking out all over your plate. Seriously, I love my Triceratacos." —Christina G.

    24. Brightening and de-puffing gold and collagen eye masks to soothe your under eyes after you write that A plus–worthy paper in one night (and to remove all remnants that you pulled an all-nighter). Your professor will never know!

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Dude, the Amazon review before & after photos are LEGIT. I'm 10/10 buying some of these, myself.

    Get a pack of 12 pairs from Amazon for $14.45.

    Promising review: "These eye masks are absolutely amazing! I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, as well as slight bags from being a mother of four. Eye creams do absolutely nothing for me, and I gave these a try just on a whim, not really expecting much. But they really work! The results aren't permanent, but I put these on for about an hour in the evening while I relax and watch TV, and my under eyes are much lighter and less puffy. I absolutely love these eye masks, and I will never be without them again." —Kate Johnson

    25. A sloth to-do notepad, because the best way to celebrate checking off your to-do list is buying a…. more fun to-do list.

    BuzzFeed / Emma McAnaw

    It has sections for your must-do tasks (with two different areas for top and lower priority), appointments, errands, and people you need to reach out to.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    A BuzzFeed editor who loves sloths swears by this to help organize her day — check out her review in the July edition of our monthly review series! Here's a snippet: "And for anyone who's not a natural-born multitasker, this is great for you! I, for one, like to do one thing at a time so it's great to be able to list everything by time frame (like to do soon or to do after a nap) so I can think out the order of importance. I don't have to say how SATISFYING it is to check things off when I complete them — do I sometimes write things down just to give it a check? Maybe. It also has cute ways to motivate me, like a mood- and productivity-rating method in the form of sloths. Dare I say, I owe these little sloth heads full credit for keeping me out of stress mode every week — they just a have a way with...planning?"
