    Food52

    Promising review: "This is a great, solid planter for medium-size houseplants. I chose a plant that doesn't need much water because there aren't drainage holes.

It's geometric without being in-your-face, like a simple sculpture. I would buy another in a different color, or if I had another room full of houseplants. It's great!" —katiewsimon

    Chewy

    And we buy them...sigh...so much.

    Promising review: "My cats love this cardboard scratcher, it gets used every day by multiple cats. I’ve had it for over four months and it’s still in fantastic condition. You can see wear on it but not a ton and it will definitely last much longer than this. After the top side is worn down, I’ll flip it over and the cats can have another untouched surface, which is awesome. They climb on top of the box to scratch, as well as go inside of it and scratch in there! They also use the short sides both inside and outside to claw at. I was worried about spending this much money on a cardboard scratcher, but I personally think it was worth the money. I will definitely purchase another in the future!" –Lexi

    Get it from Chewy for $74.95 (available in three colors).

Maddie's soft hair and layered skirt are too cute to handle, and I love her little broom. She sits upright on her own and, like the reviewer below, I will likely end up keeping her on display far after Halloween is over!
