    1. A Bob Ross waffle maker that's gonna make you even happier than some perfectly painted little trees.


    Promising review: "I had to have this Bob Ross waffle maker so I could enjoy my Sunday morning breakfast watching Bob paint. The waffles come out light and fluffy like Bob’s hair. Each waffle is a masterpiece of culinary delight. The moment I pull it out of the iron, I put a pat of butter that gently melts into all the nooks and crannies. My knife and fork can sink into the waffle with unyielding ease as the steam rises and the syrup oozes all over. A treat for any Bob Ross fan." —Pattys Place

They're a good size. The fact that they stand on their own is super helpful. Everyone should buy these!

    Promising review: "My wife received this as a gift from myself, and she smiles every time she pulls it out from its home in the cabinet. That alone makes it worth five stars in my book, but it's also sized nicely (just slightly smaller than a 'standard' colander), made of very strong plastic, and the extremely expressive eyes make for great handles.

    Promising review: "This is an excellent and fun product. I bought this as a gift for a friend who loves cycling. The stander is very helpful to keep the product out as a decoration in the kitchen. The cutter is very easy to use and I like that there are two wheels to cut the pizza as my friend and I both typically have to go over a pizza multiple times to truly cut it. It's easy to clean as well." —J Schipper

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98 (available in three colors).

    26. A Grilled Cheesus sandwich press for when you're hosting family dinner and feel pressure to make the "perfect" meal.


    Promising review: "Holy Cheesus, this sandwich press is hysterical AND it makes a really good sandwich. It's been a huge hit in our house! We did notice that it needs to cool off a bit between sandwiches (just a minute or two) or the face isn't as clear (spraying the plates with a little bit of canola oil really helps you get a good impression on your bread)." —April D

    27. A corkscrew, because not having a (darling penguin) bottle opener would be a huge party ~fowl~.

    Promising review: "We take this camping. It's tons of fun for the kids to make ice cream, rolling it around the picnic table or floor of the camper or tent. It takes a couple tries to perfect the technique, but it's worth it. There's nothing like home made ice cream over hot dutch oven dump cake!" —Prime customer

    Promising review: "This is a cute little cheese grater. It could double as decor it is so cute. It is small, but efficient if you're shredding cheese table-side or only needing a small amount. It is well suited for medium hardness cheeses. You can grate harder cheese on it, but the available grating spaces are not as ideal for hard cheese. The top has a handy little pyramid on it for holding while grating. This is cute and functional." —Lindsey Jane

    Promising review: "My adult daughter is a big kid at heart and still loves all things dinosaur, so when I saw this I knew I had to get it for her. And yes, I know Nessie isn't a dino, we're just going to pretend it's a brontosaurus. She loved it. The ladle is adorable and, while being super cute, it works just as well as any conventional ladle but with a kick of fun. It is well made and has stood up for a few months now of pretty constant use. She washes it in the dishwasher and it's still good as new." —C21Kristen
