♫ Do you believe in magic / in a BuzzFeed post? ♫

1. A bottle (or 30) of color-changing nail polish that transforms based on the temperature.

Run your fingers under hot or cold water to watch the magic happen!

Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in 30 colors).

Promising review: :"This polish is amazing! It stays on for days and it dries so quickly! It is beautiful and the color changes so awesomely!! I love it and have another color on the way!" —Heather Smith

2. A pair of starry wands to sprinkle magic dust* on your delicious home-cooked meals.

*If you can't make magic dust, store-bought is fine. (Store-bought here meaning salt and pepper.)

Get them from Amazon for $9.05.

3. A Floo-like powder that adds mind-blowing color to your indoor fireplace or outdoor firepit.

Just toss one or a few packets into the fire — each one will burn a different, vibrant color.

Get a 25-pack from Amazon for $16.95.

Promising review: "Because a huge blazing fire is not cool enough, now you can add colors. The color packets last a lot longer than I would have thought and are fun to use at parties. Enjoyable for kids and adults. Super funny when tossing it in the fire at a party and not telling anyone. You can pretend you are a wizard at that point." —M. Allen

4. An umbrella with a laser light shaft to really brighten up any grey days.

The LEDs light up seven different colors!

Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

Promising review: "Best umbrella ever! I had initially invested in a similar umbrella that was only one color, but after leaving that in a shopping cart somewhere, I found myself searching to replace it. This is by far 10 times better than my last one. It has multiple colors and a flashlight that comes out of the bottom — great for walking at dusk or hard to see sidewalks/steps. And it comes with its own carrying bag. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! Get one!!" —LB

5. Or an umbrella printed with color-changing ink that (when it gets wet) brings a preview of the rainbow to come.

Get it from Amazon for $27.51.

Promising review: "Want to look forward to rainy days? Get this umbrella! It works just like it says and it's so fun! Be prepared with a water bottle when you want to show your friends how it works and there is no rain in the forecast!" —Amazon Customer

7. A heat-sensitive tee for anyone who likes to change their look when the mercury rises.,

Get them from Amazon for $24.95 (women's cut here, unisex cut here). Sizes: S-XL

Promising review: "I had no idea these things were still around. I also had no idea how well they worked, as the one I owned in my youth was a well-worn, well-washed hand-me-down. Well, this shirt in pink-to-blue is really something. The color shifts much more quickly than I expected, and the change is dramatic and fun. I'm probably going to get the purple-to-pink as well, though I imagine it will be less dramatic." —BRH

8. A bluetooth speaker that floats over its base for a totally trippy music experience.

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

Promising review: " LOVE these speakers! They have amazing sound. The colors are really cool in the dark. I love that it levitates. Everyone loves them. It connects really well. They are lightweight and easy to carry. The ball is magnetic so it attaches to the base of the speakers so it can be carried together." —Oliver

9. Or a levitating globe doubling as a light-up constellation map for magical star-gazing from the comfort of your own home.

Get it from Amazon for $134.69.

Promising review: "Very nice levitating globe! It is not too difficult to balance it over the base. The base is well made and heavy. It looks beautiful in dark!" —Ivan Angus

10. A golden egg candle for any aspiring Daenerys Targaryen — just set it ablaze and watch a baby dragon hatch!

11. A hydrophobic (meaning water-repellant) tee that uses *nanotechnology* to make any liquid that spills on it roll right off — NO STAIN!

Your friends will think you're a wizard when you spill a big glass of liquid on yourself and it just...disappears.

Get it from Amazon for $29.99. Sizes: X-3X. Available in black and white.

Promising review: "It's a truly amazing product; the hydrophobic material works exactly as promised. The shirt does tend to run a tad small and as a result is pretty tight. But still makes for a great under shirt or work out shirt, also arrived very promptly and in great condition!" —Sterling Morris

12. A set of invisible shelves to make your books seem like they're floating by themselves — just like the candles in the Great Hall.

::peeks around corners to make sure Hermione isn't creeping about casting Wingardium Leviosa on your books::

Get a four-pack of shelves from Amazon for $23.99.

Promising review:

13. A magnetic scrubbing dot to turn the most boring and frustrating chore (cleaning an oddly-shaped container) into a simple (and...dare I say *cool*) task.

Get it from Amazon for $10. Available in four colors.

Promising review: "This is quite possibly one of the best items I have ever bought on Amazon. I have one of those wine decanters that has a narrow neck and a nooks and crannies everywhere. When I run it through the dishwasher there is always residue that is left inside it that is impossible to get to with a bottle brush and just won't come out. Enter the magnetic spot thingy and OMG it all lifted right off. Great invention!" —Karen

15. A wand-shaped universal remote control that Arthur Weasley would be Totally Obsessed with.

"Wait, this isn't a regular wand?? And it controls that odd box that keeps making sounds?"

Get it from Amazon for $49.

Promising review: "When I opened the box and held this wand for the first time, nothing happened. Then, I heard John Hurt's voice inside my head say, 'Well, give it a wave' (RIP). So, I went for it. The next thing that happened was...magical! My Xbox went straight to Netflix and in just a couple flicks of the wrist, I was watching my show. I then rotated the wand clockwise and the volume turned up. Finally, as I pointed the wand at my overhead fan, I spoke the incantation, "Nox" and pulled the wand back towards my body. The Wand-Extinguishing Charm worked like a... charm and my lights were off.

Seriously though this remote is freaking awesome. I don't know why so many dumb Muggles are on here crying about programming the remote being too difficult. If you can read you can easily program this remote. Don't worry, if you're interested in this remote you probably can read just fine. Unless you're one of those people that 'love' Harry but have only seen the movies. In that case, no one cares about you anyway." —Coreytown

16. A globe aquarium illuminated by ~bioluminescent plankton~ that glow when you swirl them around.

Science = basically magic.

Get it from Uncommon Goods for $59.95+.

Promising review: "I was worried about this product from the reviews but glad I decided to take the chance. We live on the East Cost and was worried about the cold and delivery and time change would either kill them or they not respond. But gladly on Christmas evening my son was able to see them glow. Fascinating product." —Bob

17. An instant ice cream maker — just add your chilled ingredients and swirl until they turn into soft serve or hard ice cream, depending on your preference.

Get them from Amazon for $24.05. Available in six colors.

Promising review: "My husband and I love these. I bought two, so he and I can have fresh ice cream treats and different flavors whenever we want them. No more freezer burnt ice cream for us! Make sure you use real sugar and a good solid freeze first for best results. I've used concentrated fruit juices in it too for a lighter treat, and made a honey yogurt custard with fresh blueberries that was wonderful too." –RRH

18. Luxurious, fluffy whipped soap that'll perfectly clean and moisturize the pickiest wannabe unicorn.

Get an eight-ounce jar for $9 (cheaper, smaller jars also available). Available in a cotton candy scent (pictured), orange creamsicle, and lime freeze.

Promising review: "This is even better than I had imagined...I'd eat it if I could (but I won't, because it's soap). Thank you!" —Cagenstyle

19. A fortune-telling bath bomb for anyone who's feeling a bit indecisive — just pop it in the tub, relax, and it'll answer the yes or no question of your choice!

20. A pair of sneakers that look matte black in the daylight...but turn into a holographic rainbow when reflecting a flash of light in low lighting.

Keeping you safer on nighttime walks!

Get them from Amazon for $89.95+. Men's sizes 7.5-10.5.

Promising review: "I purchased these shoes for my son, he loves them. He took several photographs and posted them to his friends. One of them has placed an order for a pair. These shoes are beautiful and they truly motivate him to go to the gym and show them off." —Happy Hazel

21. A pair of makeup-removing cloths to completely remove every trace of makeup (even waterproof!) from your face with just water.

Get the set of two from Sephora for $12.

Promising review: "Honestly I have never tried the makeup eraser but I can honestly say I don't feel the need to since these work perfectly and they are half the price. I don't see how the makeup eraser could do anything different. This is a very affordable and environmentally friendly way to take off your makeup. They are machine washable and everything! They even take off waterproof makeup like a charm! I would recommend these to anyone!" —Djdjwxp

22. A stainless steel soap bar that makes funky odors (garlic, onion, fish, and way more) disappear with a quick rub.

Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

Promising review: "I saw this product on Amazon, read some reviews and thought I'd try it. In my experience, this bar is good for getting rid of onions, garlic and salmon. I'm sure it works on other smells. I keep it close to the kitchen sink for use at any time. Shaped like a bar of soap and easy to hold on to." —Chi Mom

23. A smart notebook for anyone who wants a copy of their notes or drawings on their computer — just sync the notebook with the accompanying app (you can even erase the notebook in the microwave!).

Get it from Amazon for $27. Available in three styles.

Promising review: "I really like this idea, and will use this notebook for years to come. The pen is surprisingly smooth for an erasable pen, and the paper is easy to write on. The app is easy to set up and use. The pages have a dot style page layout, similar to those used for bullet journals. Overall I would recommend this notebook for anyone that likes to have digital copies of their notes" —Ben M.

24. An "anti-gravity" phone case that clings to most surfaces so you can check email, stream video, and get directions without worrying about your phone falling.

It sticks to glass, mirror, white board, metal, ceramic, cabinets, car surfaces, and more!

Get it from Amazon for $8.98. Available in 22 different colors and phone sizes.

Promising review: "This is everything it claims to be. It really does stick to virtually any surface and at any angle, right up to a perfectly vertical surface like on the bathroom mirror or even a wall. The adhesive on the back of the case leaves behind no residue so you don't have to worry about it leaving a stain.It fits my phone perfectly and the sides have good texture so the phone doesn't go popping out of my grasp the way some cases I've owned have. The only thing I would hope is that in the future the packaging will give some indication about how to clean the adhesive area of the case." —Chris M.

25. A mini Smaug who loves to burn incense and make your whole mountain (um, room) smell amazing.

Get it from Think Geek for $99.99.

Promising review: "I just received my burner today and it was worth every penny!! Once you put in the cone incense and he starts letting smoke out, he looks (and smells) AWESOME. He's beautifully painted, too. A bit larger in person than expected (the good kind), but is lighter in weight than he looks. (Just be careful with the incense base as it's at least 28 ounces.)" —Faolchú Gealach

26. A portable lounger that only weighs two pounds and inflates in no time flat, making it perfect for picnics or treks to the beach this summer.

Just inflate using the air/wind around you and relax!

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

Promising review: "When I first received this and read the how to inflate, my hope deflated. But I can honestly say how surprised I was by just how easy it was to inflate. It's made of a thicker plastic-like material and is very well crafted. Even though it looks intimidating to inflate, it is actually very simple to get started. I give this outdoor inflatable chair two big thumbs up!" —Melissa90

27. A tabletop projector for anyone who is tired of tripping at night but is also too extra to have a boring old nightlight.

Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

Promising review: "I was surprised by how well it worked! Thought the light would be too weak to show, but it's very bright and colorful. It may even be too bright for some to use as a night light, but since it's so bright it shows up during the day, so it can work as a soft atmospheric light too. It projects vividly across the ceiling." —Gary Baumgartel
