A pair of moisturizing socks, a book on astrophysics, a water fountain (for your cat), and 19 other things you’ll want to add to your wish list ASAP.

Posted on

Psst! Amazon has a section featuring products that people put on their wish lists and registries most often.

Here are some of the coolest and most useful products from that section this week:

1. A picture book that'll empower every person who picks it up.

Promising Review: "I love this book and wish I'd had it when I was growing up! The delightful illustrations replete with a short biography of 40 trail-blazing black women who made great contributions in every sphere: academia, art, economics, entertainment, film, letters, science, social causes, and space travel. It's long past time to learn about these women. I think everybody should know who these women are and what they were able to accomplish. I think this book belongs in every classroom. It is a good way to inspire others. This book is for everybody." —BeatleBangs1964

Price: $11.68


2. A pair of moisturizing socks which may bring your feet up to Cinderella status.

Each sock has a vitamin-enriched gel lining that's infused with lavender and jojoba oil and can be used up to 40 times.

Promising Review: "What is this magic? My feet and heels are always dry and cracked. I live in a hot climate and always wear flip-flops. I tried these out to see if they would make any difference. They are the bomb! My flaky heels were soft as a baby after wearing them only once. They are like magic for my feet!" —NickD

Price: $14.94 (available in three colors)

3. A cheese grater to instantly shred an insulting amount of parmesan (or any hard cheese of your tastebuds' choosing) onto your plate before sharing with anyone else.

PSST! It's also dishwasher-safe!

Promising Review: "This is by far the easiest rotary grater I have used. It is durable, comfortable to hold, and easy to clean. The size and weight make it perfect for home use (although after reading other reviews, it is also apparently used in many restaurants). This grater is at the table just as much as the salt and pepper." —R. Paulus

Price: $10.49

4. A cushy bath lotus that'll help your baby's self-esteem when they realize they're being bathed in the same sink you scraped leftover baked ziti into the night before.

The Blooming Bath Lotus is designed with four movable petals to perfectly fit in any sink and is suitable for babies 0–6 months old.

Promising Review: "This has changed bath time for us. It's the best investment we have made for our baby. She hated bath time because she was so uncomfortable and it was so hard to keep her warm and actually wash her. In the lotus she is so comfy and I am able to actually wash her (instead of just trying to figure out how to securely hold her). She actually falls asleep! Highly recommend!" —Kelly F.

Price: $39.99 (available in nine colors)

5. A faux-leather coat to make you look like the kind of edgy motorcyclist your mom doesn't want you dating.

Promising Review: "I absolutely love this jacket! It's made very well and the quilting is beautiful. The sleeves are perfectly long and I love the fact that the hood is removable. I can't recommend this jacket enough!" —Mollie Easley

Price: $17.46+ (available in 22 colors, sizes XS–XXL)


6. A set of six cactus tea candles since your roommate is a prick who won't stop killing your actual plants.

Promising Review: "These guys are absolutely adorable! I bought these as a gift but when I saw them I was like, 'Mine!' They are amazing decorative fillers. My house guests often comment about how adorable they are." —(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Ebee

Price: $7.59+ (available in three styles)

7. A toilet paper holder for anyone who isn't sheepish about awesome bathroom decor.

Promising Review: "I absolutely love this sheep toilet paper holder! I was sick of trying to find space in our bathroom closet to store extra rolls of TP. This seemed like the perfect solution! It’s made very well, easy to assemble, and has brought a bit of functional whimsy into an otherwise boring room. I appreciate the fact that it can be free-standing or hung on the wall. Seriously, if I could give this thing 10 stars, I would! It’s sooooo cute!" —Deanokat

Price: $44.99

8. A string of solar-powered neon lights sure to make your backyard look like something out of Avatar.

These lights are solar powered, so there's no need to charge any batteries or use electricity. It includes the mounting spike, solar panel, and a string of LED lights that'll charge up with the sun and shine bright at night. Includes two 20 ft. strings with 30 lights each.

Promising Review: "Just what I wanted! The colors are beautiful. The actual light bulb is in the base and the light filters through the drop, which is filled with tiny bubbles. The effect is lovely. I string these around my patio umbrella on the deck for soft, unique solar lighting all summer." —Elizabeth L

Price: $15.99

9. A cat drinking fountain, because cats don't trust still water and are often dehydrated as a result, but they'll definitely trust liquid oozing out of a dainty daisy (because they are unpredictable a-holes like that).

Once plugged into the wall, this floral fountain lets out soft streams of filtered water for your cat. With three different stream options, you can easily find whatever amount of flow is best for your fur baby.

Promising Review: "All five of my fur babies love this little guy. They took to it immediately, even though they have never had a fountain to drink from before. The pump is whisper quiet and provides a nice flow over the little flower. I rinse out my filter once a week but, like I said, I have five cats. So cat hair is pretty much a seasoning in my house. This fountain is practically perfect." —The RedHead

Price: $29.99


10. A kitchen caddy every organized germaphobe is gonna love having in their spotless (sanitary) kitchen.

Promising Review: "Love it. This is exactly what I need. I'm a bit of a 'germaphobe' and all I saw were the caddies with the suction cups that you place IN your sink. I don't like germs being sprayed all over my cleaning supplies and I wanted one that sits on my counter. Then I came across this item. It is perfect for all my needs and holds everything. I also like this because it made my counter less cluttered. Before, I had nowhere to lay things when I cleaned except directly on the counter and it looked messy. I'm also glad that this doesn't drain onto the counter because I don't want water everywhere (that's what I was looking for when I bought it). I like the tray that it comes with so that it keeps dirty water away from your sponge. I love it." —Sal

Price: $12.75+ (available in two colors)

11. A pair of lightweight running shoes so good looking you could wear them with your wedding dress and people would still be like, "I'm cool with that."

Promising Review: "I love these shoes! They are amazing. They're so comfortable and every time I wear them I get a ton of compliments. Great price too!" —Melissa J

Price: $41+ (available in four colors, sizes 5–11)

12. A mid-century modern walnut chair that may help convince your girlfriend that you really do have great taste.

Promising Review: "Gorgeous chair and the price was amazing. The chair was so easy to put together and it looks perfect in my office! Zero complaints here. Can't beat the price or quality!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $94.41+ (available in two colors)

13. A package of 216 smiling binder clips, because if you add a cutie clip on your assignment you'll easily get you an "A" on the 14 page essay you wrote four hours ago (your next 215 assignments are looking better already).

Promising Review: "These little binder clips bring a smile to everyone's face when they see the little emoji cutout. I bought the case so that I could share, they're such a cute way to cheer up the office!" —Dawn McCain

Price: $16.99


14. A bamboo body brush to softly exfoliate and massage your struggling winter skin.

Promising Review: "I have been looking for a body brush to exfoliate and massage my skin that doesn't hurt it. This brush is it! The brush side has semi-soft bristles and works great. The 'nub' side is perfect for massaging the skin. It's a good quality brush that will last. Now I look forward to showers because it's very helpful with relaxation. I love it." —Ret USAFNCO

Price: $14.95

15. A lion's mane for your doggo, because you know he is the actual king of the jungle (or at the very least, king of the jungle gym).,

Promising Review: "This is super cute and I love it!! When I walk my dog around the block I tend to startle people at first! LOL! It fits great and the adjustable strap makes it easy to put on and off! My dog is still a puppy so I use the strap to adjust the size. The fabric is soft and will not irritate your pup's skin. It is just an all-around great product!!" —Shopping Addict!!

Price: $13.98

16. A billowing canopy to make a whimsical reading nook out of any corner of the house.

Promising Review: "I love this canopy! I purchased it for my daughter's room and it's perfect. We have it draped behind her bed and it looks amazing. Love this!" —Erika

Price: $13.99+ (available in six colors)

17. A zodiac necklace so your sign will shine bright.

Promising Review: "Absolutely LOVE it!!!!" —Hallie Levinson (She is totally a Sagittarius.)

Price: $44.99 (available in 12 signs)


18. An 11-piece bar set that's gonna make your basement's bar the place to be on a Friday night (which is exactly where your anti-social self wants to be every Friday night).

This stainless-steel set is dishwasher-safe and includes a strainer, jigger, two shakers, bar spoon, pourer, muddler, fruit peeler, bottle opener, cork screwer, and ice tongs. And clearly a lifetime supply of happiness, but they failed to mention that in the list.

Promising Review: "I recently graduated from bartending school and I love this home bar tool set. It is everything I thought it would be! It has 11 wonderful pieces. I am truly amazed with all the items that comes with this set. I often bartend for parties and special events and I now take my bar tool set to every function. It allows me to make perfect drinks. The pieces are very easy to clean and fit right into my dishwasher. This met my expectations to the fullest extent. I truly recommend this." —Wayne

Price: $42.99

19. A microfiber towel for preventing your hair's usual furiously frizzy fate.

Promising Review: "I have super thick, naturally curly hair that hangs onto any moisture for dear life. I always found it annoying that the standard cotton towels took forever to dry my hair completely. This towel works great though! After just a few squeezes my hair is dry enough to not even drip down my back. Very happy with my purchase!" —Victoria B.

Price: $14.99

20. A book on astrophysics that'll have you laughing out loud and wondering why you don't change your major to "space."

Promising Review: "Neil Tyson has an outstanding ability to relate scientific ideas to the general public. His humor and down-to-earth allusions help make even the farthest reaches of space seem accessible. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry doesn't disappoint; Tyson's compelling anecdotes and clear prose shine throughout. His cultural references are especially memorable, from quotes by Shakespeare, the Bible, and a poem by Einstein, to modern-day allusions to Star Trek. All in all, the book offers a model of clarity in scientific explanation. Highly recommended as an introduction to contemporary astrophysics!" —Paul Halpern

Price: $11.37

21. Or a baby book on rocket science, so your future kiddo can become the scientist you forgot to be.

Promising Review: "I'm a meteorologist and my sister is a mechanical engineer, so when I came across this book while shopping for my new nephew, I had to grab it. It is solidly constructed to where a baby can't destroy it, with minimalist images perfect for an infant. Honestly, it's mostly about being a nerd and giving it to other nerd parents. My sister thinks it's great. It should last for many more nieces and nephews to come. Science!" —Micah R.

Price: $7.24

22. And a curiously cute utensil holder for storing (and charmingly displaying) every spatula, whisk, and prong currently taking up valuable space in your junk drawer.

Promising Review: "I love this! It is the perfect size for all necessary kitchen utensils, looks great on my kitchen counter, and adds just the right amount of color pop! Super happy with how this ended up working out in my kitchen. I highly recommend this product." —Olivia Mayer

Price: $12.98+ (available in five colors)
