    Get it from Wayfair for $1,419.99 (available in two colors). 

    3. A splurge-worthy Samsung Frame for those of us who don't want quality wall space taken over by a big blank screen. With this, you just happen to get a luxury television while you're at it.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "This is a brilliant TV! It looks great in art mode. If your primary goal is to have the TV look less like a TV, I think you’ll be pleased with this one. There are some reviews that point out some downsides (like a small amount of local storage), but I’ve had no problems. The pictures make the screen look brighter than it is but with the right pictures, it looks matte and brilliant in art mode; like a framed print." —N B

    Get it from Amazon for $575.98+ (available in four colors and six sizes).

    4. A menstrual cup — a satisfying upgrade from tampons that'll delight environmentally minded folks who are sick and tired of spending what could be monthly chocolate money on disposable period products.

    These are made to last 10 years (you read that right!) and can be worn for up to 12 hours.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! I have used other cups in the past and have had some difficulty. After a short learning curve, I was able to use this cup with ease.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    5. A Google Nest Mini sure to have you thinkin' robot overlords might not be so bad. Use this to listen to music, control your television, and adjust your lights...did I just fall in love with an inanimate object?

    7. A surprisingly aesthetic natural-wood essential-oil diffuser with a car vent clip that'll let you use all your favorite essential oils in your car, saving you from suffering through the scent of faux plastic pine.


    This comes with a lavender essential oil.

    Promising review: "I’m very particular when it comes to scent so I’m picky about choosing products for my house and car. I’ve always used car air fresheners but was looking for an alternative that wouldn’t give me a headache with an overpowering chemical scent for my long commutes. This oil diffuser is a great alternative to other generic brands. The scent of lavender essential oil is lush, soothing but not overpowering which is great for destressing during my commutes. You can also place it on top of your work desk for a subtle and soothing aroma. The diffuser came in high-quality packaging with two petite reed sticks. Highly recommend it!" —Eric H.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "This razor changed my life. I have always broken out in razor burn and ingrown hairs. I could only shave once every week at the most so I always had prickly legs. Once I started using the Oui the People razor, I have smooth, silky legs because I can shave as often as I want. It's gentle on my skin and my ingrown and razor burn has almost disappeared (I've only had it two weeks). This is the best investment I've made for myself." —Carson Bute

    Preorder it from Oui the People for $75.

    Promising review: "I am loving my Tushy! It is powerful and so easy to install!

    Promising review: "I received this tool a month ago and honestly could not wait to try it. I have been using it faithfully every night for five minutes on my face and 15 to 20 minutes on my stubborn cellulite. At first I didn't see much of a result but as the weeks progressed, I have to tell you, I am hooked and would not be without it. I have noticed results on my thighs and on my face people have complimented me and asked what I have done and I tell them it must be the Selfkaire tool I am using. love it." —CGBG

    BTW locals, TofuBud is based in San Fransisco!

    Promising review: "I was resistant to getting a tofu press. Another kitchen gadget! But this little guy does not disappoint. It saves time and is clean, fast, and easy. I thought I would want something made of wood or metal — but really this is just the thing. It’s cute, rinses out licketty split, and gets the job done without messing up towels or having to boil off extra water. My countertop stays clean. I’ve been a vegetarian all my life and this little gadget is already indispensable." —Maria Lewis

    Get it on sale from TofuBud for $29.95 (originally $35.95).

    26. An under-the-sink water filtration system for enjoying a fresh glass of water straight from the sink. Thank you, Science, for giving me filtered perfection without a pitcher in my fridge. Amen.

    The system hooked up in the cabinet under a kitchen sink (it's about the size of a small fire extinguisher)

    This uses a two-step system that removes 99.99% of contaminants. It includes direct connect hoses to hook right up to the standard 3/8" valves in US kitchen sinks. And don't fret about installation! It's only supposed to take, listen to this, THREE minutes. 

    Promising review: "We have town water and it seems they are putting more and more chlorine in it every year. We should be getting used to it and tasting it less and less, not more! The refrigerator filters are super expensive and weren't cutting it. Every time I put a glass to my mouth it smelled like a swimming pool. I searched the internet and decided to give this a try due to the positive reviews and affordability. Wow! Easy install (I'm an avid DIYer). And the taste! The chorine taste is just gone! No more overpriced fridge filters for us. I love that the filter replacement procedure is basically the same as a fridge. Just twist and remove. We love it so much I teed off the fridge line and put a dispenser at our sink as well. The flow on this thing is just amazing! And the water tastes great! Don't waste your money on the expensive, complicated ones. My parents have a three-chambered, name brand filter at their house. It was expensive, the replacement filters are expensive, it is a pain in the petunias to replace the filters, and the flow rate is pathetic! But guess what! Our water from this filter tastes just as good as theirs at a fraction of the price, plus it's way more convenient, plus the flow rate is way better. I just can't say enough. Love love it! You will too!" —BJ

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99.

    27. A hand-painted decor box that'll keep your 14-year-old potty humor alive and well, despite the interest you've been showing in toilet paper storage methods as you've gotten older.

    28. A set of four linen napkins that are naturally stain-resistant, so if you're gonna really make your napkins work to earn their keep — this gorgeous set has your name on it! Soup season has got nothin' on these.


    Promising review: "These are beautiful napkins. They are a fine weight for everyday use and hold up to the washing machine. Being linen we didn't expect them to be wrinkle-free but they are amazingly stain resistant. We are totally in love with them. We got a set of each color. They are big enough we can use one color napkin as a placemat and then an alternate color as the napkin to mix and match with the placemats. The coral color is our favorite." —Deanna O'Shaughnessy

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $29.99 (available in eight colors).

    30. A meat bouquet to let your loved one know (in the tastiest way possible) how happy you are that you were able to ~meat~ in this lifetime. I will never buy my boo flowers again.

    Man Crates

    I get my husband a meat bouquet every year (the guy knows what he likes) and this is the one I got for Valentine's Day this year. We have used the personalized etched cup daily and it still looks brand new. The meat didn't last as long. In fact, it's probably criminal how fast we ate it all.

    This includes a personalized Pilsner glass, three salami chubs, sopressata salame, calabrese salame, chorizo salame, and four Man Crates exclusive exotic jerky sticks in buffalo whiskey maple, wild boar honey bourbon, elk garlic, and venison root beer habanero.
