    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 cruelty-free charcoal scrub that wouldn't hurt a fly, but will freaking annihilate your blackheads.

    Promising Review: "I have tried so many products before I found this one and I absolutely love it! I have been struggling for years with blackheads and this has really done the trick. When my friend first told me about this I was like, 'C'mon how could charcoal make your skin that clear?!' But, trust me on this, it will change your life. I am hooked and will be a customer for life!" —Josef Allen

    Price: $13.89

    2. A bookshelf with just the right asthetic to make your cookie-cutter condo look like the chic New York apartment of your dreams.

    Promising Review: "These shelves were very easy to assemble and added the perfect look for our modern office." —Lex13

    Price: $149+ Colors: brown and black

    3. A board game to play when you have given up on cooking dinner but still want to be around food.

    Promising Review: "I'm selective when it comes to buying games. I always want to ensure it would be fun and challenging for both my kids (6 and 9) and for me and my husband. I also love simple games that don't take forever to finish. This game fits the bill on both criteria! We love it! The fact that the noodles vary in 'twistness' makes it challenging because they cause the whole noodle pile to shift when you pull it! It requires you to analyze which noodle is the safest to pull. A really fun and cute game!" —Lois Evans

    Price: $9.77

    4. A Steve Madden carry-on you would actually want to carry with you.

    Promising Review: "This is a great bag. It was perfect for a weekend trip. Fits in the overhead compartment, not so much under the seat in front of you. Very cute and has a decent amount of space to pack!" —Hannah

    Price: $79 Colors: 11

    5. A picture book that will be the perfect passive-aggressive bedtime story for kids who have been bad all day.

    Promising Review: "This book was so much fun to read aloud to my children. We were all able to do great voices for the characters, and the story was quite catchy. We have read it multiple times — I highly recommend this for all families!" —Chelle

    Price: $13.50

    6. A box of 12 bags of seaweed chips, because you are gonna need a low-carb treat to help kick that Flamin' Hot Cheetos addiction.

    Promising Review: "Great snacking food for those who need a little salt without all the carbs. Wonderful alternative to chips IMHO! I leave this in my desk at work whenever I need a pick-me-up, and they always satisfy." —Marie83

    Price: $17.73 Flavors: two

    7. A french fry cup holder is either the most brilliant gag gift you will ever buy, or the best thing that ever happened to the grease-free upholstery in your car.

    Promising Review: "Bought this for my wife as she is a french fry lover to the MAX. I gave it to her thinking it was an okay novelty item for the truck. You would have thought it was the Hope Diamond. We immediately had to go to Sonic and try it out and it worked well. I am her hero." —Robert Perkins

    Price: $7

    8. A cross-stitch kit for when you decide you need a hobby other than marathon binge-watching The X-Files (but TBH you could also do this while watching The X-Files).

    Promising Review: "I loved this kit! It is definitely a beginners kit, as the fabric is a low count and very stiff to make it easy for people who are just getting started, so if you are a beginner this is a great project to start with." —sabrinag04

    Price: $8.68

    9. A lotus cotton swab holder that will make your bathroom look like the zen garden you can't afford to put in the backyard.

    Promising Review: "What a cute holder for cotton swabs! It's so much better than keeping it in the box. The flower petals come off so that you can fit more or less cotton swabs in the container and it also has a cap so that dust does not get on it. I have been looking for something that would match the bathroom and look nice for Q-tips and this is the perfect thing. It's also not too big and is very sturdy. It does not feel like cheap material even though I got such a great price for it!" —Jamie

    Price: $8.88 Colors: four

    10. A portable Bluetooth record player so you can play gorgeous music in your home and on the go. (What's an iPhone?)

    Promising Review: "My new favorite toy! A nostalgic alternative to a regular music player. It's durable for added portability around the house. I think we may take this on road trips, as well." —Andrea

    Price: $59.99 Colors: three

    11. An incredibly cozy cat cave, because if your cats are going to sleep all day anyway, have them sleep in something cute enough for your Instagram account.

    Promising Review: "The kitties love it! I bought one and they both fought over it, so I bought a second one! They use them all the time now. They love to sleep in and on them, as well as play in them. The opening is a great size so they can get in and out easily. Really well done, great quality and service!" —Amazonshrimpy

    Price: $68.88 Colors: four

    12. A collapsable jogging stroller for parenting in the fast lane.

    Promising Review: "Even if you are not a jogger/runner, I would recommend this stroller. It is so easy to assemble and very solid. It is very sturdy when unfolded. I'd much rather have these wheels than the wheels that normally come with most strollers. This truly is the best stroller I have ever used!" —Sean Solitro

    Price: $150.43 Colors: 4

    13. A versatile and lightweight blanket cape that will be a year-round staple for the rest of your wardrobe's life.

    Promising Review: "Love the product. I wear this to work when the air conditioning is on. It's nice for any time of the year. It looks so expensive and keeps me very warm. Very classy." —Dorothy

    Price: $22.99 Colors: 4

    14. A mystical shoulder bag to remind everyone about your undying love for Sailor Moon, or your newfound love of cat-eared crescent moon accessories.

    Promising Review: "I've had this purse for two months now and it's still holding up beautifully. It's adorable and the perfect size to hold my phone, wallet, and other little things. I initially only got this for going on the boardwalk because I didn't own or use purses, but it's been seven weeks since my vacation and I'm using it daily now. The price is incredibly reasonable, the quality is great, and it's absolutely adorable. 10/10 recommend." —Amanda

    Price: $16.99 Colors: black and white

    15. An essential-oil humidifier to use even after cold season is long gone.

    Promising Review: "This little humidifier really impressed me. It looks REALLY nice and the light settings are a nice touch. I didn't know a humidifier could look so nice. I get compliments on it all the time! I have a rather large bedroom, and it really helps the moisture levels throughout. After I had it going all night, I woke up and it was still on and I felt great. No dry mouth, lips, eyes, anything. I got a set of essential oils for use with this as well, and it works great! My room smells so nice." —Karin J.

    Price: $31.99 Colors: four

    16. A retro mini projector that will be perfect for anyone who loves to see movies on the big screen but doesn't actually want to leave the house ever.

    It can connect to HDMI-enabled devices like DVD players, smartphones, laptops, and gaming devices.

    Promising Review: "I have it hooked up to my PS4 to play games and watch Netflix and the image quality is really impressive, especially because similar projectors usually go for twice the price of this one! AMAZING projector, AMAZING image quality and OUTSTANDING customer service! Definitely the best and most affordable compact projector out there!" —André P.

    Price: $84.99+ Colors: black and white

    17. A Pokémon lunchbox for everyone who wishes Pokémon Go was still a thing.


    Promising Review: "My kid is delighted with this lunch box. It was a huge hit the first day of school. All his classmates wanted to check it out. It works best with items that can be stored in ziplock bags rather than square Tupperware, but it is quite roomy inside." —MAC

    Price: $23.90

    18. A balance bike to help children develop the confidence and balance for a standard bike while giving them the freedom to ride without clunky training wheels.

    Promising Review: "I bought this for my 2-year-old's birthday. He loves it. He zooms up and down our driveway. I can’t believe how fast he is. He also will cruise with both feet lifted in the air. I think it will make the transition to a real bicycle a breeze." —Chelsie

    Price: $59.99 Colors: three

    19. A mid-century accent chair in a posh pink velvet that will give your apartment the '90s-kid touch it deserves.

    Promising Review: "Chair is GREAT quality. It's exactly like the photos. The velvet is very soft and in great condition. Seat height is good for under a desk or table. The chair is actually pretty deep, so taller people should also be fine sitting in it. Assembly couldn't be easier." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $89.99 Colors: four

    20. A seriously practical steamer because we both know you're not fitting an ironing board in your bedroom and your linens need some lovin'.

    Promising Review: "This fabric steamer is great! I've never purchased one before and both my husband and I lug out the big ironing board when we need to get rid of wrinkled clothing. After purchasing this steamer I may never iron again! I love that it is lightweight and easy to use. It heats up fast and is the perfect accessory for a busy household!" —Pamela W

    Price: $23.99

    21. A darling vintage-inspired Mason jar measuring cup set to bump up your kitchen decor into Martha Stewart territory.

    Promising Review: "The pictures do not do it justice! It so beautiful. And that is not all it has going for it! It is so useful! I can tell there was a lot of attention paid to the details." —Trina Snow

    Price: $15.99

    22. A pocket-sized arcade game — it's the fun-size candy bar of arcades, and it will be the best thing that ever happened to your weekends.

    Promising Review: "Exactly as pictured; this is seriously a mini arcade crammed full of games." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.88

    23. A set of five faux succulents for people who can't keep a plant alive to save their life.

    Promising Review: "These met all of my expectations. They are lightweight, but not so light they feel cheap. These colors are natural and realistic. I love them." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.99
