    Promising review: "I LOVE this! I needed a cute new trinket dish and wanted something aesthetic. It’s a lot bigger than I thought which I totally love because I can fit more jewelry on it! Very sturdy and heavy too — doesn’t feel or look cheap." —Tori

    3. A pair of toast tongs to make sure you don't burn even a little rabbit of your fingies when your toast pops up from the toaster — no matter how impatient you are when it's breakfast time. 

    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. The packaging is also nice and makes this really giftable, so I'll be ordering more as gifts for sure." —Tuzi

    4. A cheese keeper to keep your favorite cheeses, both hard and soft, alive longer by allowing them to breathe. In the words of her highness, Veruca Salt, "Give it to me NOW!"

    Promising review: "Oh wow! I followed the directions and put that moist paper towel in with my cheese, on the bottom and put some unwrapped and cut Jarlsberg wedge in it. I left for vacation and two weeks later came back, and it was still fresh and moist and not moldy! Huzzah! I'm MIGHTY impressed with this simple gadget. I hate food waste and this is super helpful!" —Awesome Taste

    Promising review: "Going on a big trip soon and I bought this for travel. I am super obsessed with the quality and how light/soft it is. It's the perfect size for my laptop and acts as a cushion for other things in my backpack. It can be slightly tricky to open, I just slide one finger in and then expand my hand to open it but it has a magnetic-like closure. Love the color too, it's simple." —mandella cesena

    6. "Shower Cat" that'll be a hit with folks who spend half their time in the shower making hair art on the walls, which inevitably ends up clogging the drain. TMI? This makes catching your hair *much* easier and gives it a proper place while you finish sudsing up.

    Shower Cat is a small business established in 2021 specializing in products to prevent shower clogs. 

    Promising review: "I first saw this product on TikTok and I knew immediately that I needed it. I just moved into a new apartment and I didn’t want to be how I used to be, where I’d just let hair go down the drain and plug it eventually, or peel it off of the drain after each shower. It works great but I probably need some practice with it. I currently just floss my hair through it so it will hold them and there are a few stray hairs that don’t stick. I would recommend to anyone who is tired of putting your loose strands of hair on the shower wall." —Cari Schwartzkopf

    7. Horizontal Parenting, a laugh-out-loud funny (and surprisingly clever!) book for parents who would happily do ANYTHING if they could lie down for just a minute. Grab this book, draw some roads on one of your old shirts, hand your kid a toy car, and let them play "Back Street" while you fall sound asleep.

    8. A rose-shaped ice mold you can use to add an elegant design to everyday drinks. Imagine a tub of these keeping drinks cool during a shower or wedding. Picture. Perfect.

    Psst — you can use these to freeze iced coffee or juice to add to your morning iced coffee or cocktails to cool them without watering them down! 

    Promising review: "I was at a restaurant and they put one of these roses in my cocktail. I knew right then I had to make these at home and ordered these while at the restaurant. These are easy to fill and have rubber snaps that lock them tight. They come right out and you can even take just one out and leave the others for the next time. These are a hit at all of my dinner parties too! I have already ordered more as my friends all want these in their drinks!" —Siri US

    9. A pair of LED collars you can toss on your dog, giving you some peace of mind while walking around at night. This thing is especially useful if you play fetch with your dog when it's dark or if they love running around your large yard at night.

    Promising review: "I live rural and we have occasional coyotes and some pretty big owls. Bella is not a big dog and I have to see her when she’s out in my fenced yard. It’s a big yard and I can see her very well with this. I only put it on her at night, sometimes she won’t even go out without it on. You can cut it so it slips over a dog’s head and it’s very convenient. They charge fast and they last a long time. I recommend them. I find that the green is the brightest." —Nancy636

    10. cloud light that'll turn any regular room into a rave-worthy wonderland. Or a soothing sanctuary — you do you.

    Promising review: "My child has been asking for a cloudscape on her wall/celling for some time now and after I saw this product in the reviews I took a risk and bought two of them. I was shocked at how many accessories for hanging these up and securing the cords to the ceiling and wall came with the product. And the options for different type of hanging and adhesion were plentiful. I was able to hang the clouds up in probably a total of 10 minutes. After fluffing the clouds a bit and letting my daughter pick the exact right spot we were so happy with the result! The brightness, color options, pattern options, etc were endless. My daughter enjoys having the app on her phone because it makes it fun to create the mood she is looking for, depending one the occasion (she also likes to mess with me by making them blink or change when she’s not in the room and I am in there picking up laundry or what have you). She also enjoys having the timer feature so that she can go to sleep with it on. Overall, I’m very impressed and highly recommend this product!" —JHay

    11. A set of french fry clips to keep opened snacks fresh. This includes a magnetic holder to avoid stashing chip clips in a cluttered junk drawer. Funny, functional, AND organized?! These things are delicious. 

    Promising review: "These are very cute and I love the magnet holder to stick on my fridge so they are easily accessible. Not sure about the durability, haven't used very long." —Save the Bees

    12. And a set of Goldfish fridge magnets for cool folks who love covering their refrigerator with pictures and drawings (and crackers) and LIFE! The fridge is *primo* real estate for that stuff. Personally, I find it fishy when people chose to leave it bare. Where are they putting their kid's A+ spelling test? The garage?!
