    Promising review: "These are the cutest toast tongs! They are nicely crafted and the long-eared bunny design is adorable. Perfect tongs for my toaster and waffle iron. It stands by itself as a little, functional piece of art, and won't get lost in the utensil drawer like my old boring tongs.

They are so strong that I'm not paranoid at all that my necklaces will come off. Definitely ordering more so I can put them on every piece I own. Also, great for layering necklaces so they don't get tangled in back of your neck." —House Hunter

    Promising review: "This sleeping bag is really cool. It’s wide and long enough to fit two adults! There’s actually a zipper on each side so you can get out on either side and a hook and loop bar on the top of each zipper to keep you zipped in. It’s a really good quality fabric. It even came with two pillows. I was really impressed to find a high quality sleeping bag like this and it makes me feel more comfortable knowing that I can starfish and spread out in a big sleeping bag instead of feeling claustrophobic in a regular one. Try this out! It’s cool and honestly really good quality." —Salty Jabberswirl

    Promising review: "I moved last year from Southern California to North Carolina. Bugs of all types have always been attracted to me but the amount of bites I got last summer was WILD. Someone gave me one of these types of bracelets to use one day and it seemed to work SOOOOOO I decided to buy myself an arsenal to prepare for this summer. I read the reviews and about 99% of them had great results. I've only used this bracelet twice but both times I was outside and un-touched. Delivery was very quick so that was a plus. I'm not fond of the smell, I'm hyper sensitive to smells, but I'd rather have the odor than being chewed alive." —Tracey Agopian

    BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly loves hers. In her own words: "I've been using for about a year. As the reviewer down below mentions, it's great to just throw in your purse on the reg for a fragrance re-up throughout the day. As you can see, it's about the size of my thumb and therefore takes up very little room. Plus! It's smaller than most rollerball travel fragrances you can pick up. This first one is working so well, that I just have the other three in storage. But if this one bites the dust this summer during travels, I'll be OK about digging into my stores to use one of the remaining three...especially at this price point."

    10. Bartesian cocktail machine — with this spiffy machine, you can make your favorite cocktails — from a whiskey sour to a cosmopolitan — in seconds. And the effort on your part?

    Promising reviews: "My entire family and I are extremely satisfied with the Bartesian cocktail machine. I bought this late November but could not provide a review as this was a family Christmas gift. When it was finally unwrapped and opened up, everyone was surprised, excited, and wanted a drink. With six adults in the family, we all had our favorite. I bought six different cocktail mixes (cosmopolitan, whisky sour, sex on the beach, rum breeze, uptown rocks, and Long Island iced tea). We tried them all, and every cocktail turned out fantastic!! I would recommend this machine to anyone who enjoys quality cocktails." —Doug
