2. Cream that'll fix your feet when they're as dry and cracked as pavement at an abandoned lot.

Promising review: "I couldn't believe the difference after three weeks. The cracks were repairing and the awful dryness was gone! My feet feel soft and CLEAN (you know how dry skin makes everything look dirty!!!). I'm going to continue to use this every day — as long as I remember — and no longer be embarrassed by my troll like heels again! And maybe, just maybe I'll find time to get a pedicure and they'll be all, 'wow you're feet are so soft!!!!' Thanks O'Keefe's!!!" —Kayee

Price: $9.12

3. A copy of American Gods to read (or reread) before the TV series begins in 2017.

Based on the trailer, it looks like it's going to be gooooooood.Promising review: "Why had I never read this book before now?? It was one of the best books I've read in years. Neil Gaiman brings this alternate version of America to life and really makes you think about the mythologies we create. I won't give away any plot points, but will say that if you haven't read this yet, you need to stop reading reviews right now and click 'Add to Cart.' Quit reading. 'Add to Cart.'" —JennyAGoGoPrice: $9.99+

4. A personalized necklace to point to when the barista asks you how to spell your name.

I mean, you probably won't have to do that if your name is Jessica, but that's the product photo we had to work with. Promising review: "It is seriously beautiful. I was worried that it would look/feel cheap because it was such an inexpensive item, but I promise IT'S NOT. The name part is small and the letters are formed really well: none of the letters were misshapen or had any bumps. The chain doesn't have those giant loops like cheap jewelry usually does; this chain is small and inconspicuous just like you would want your chain to be. It even came with a chain extender!" —beccaricePrice: $29.99

5. A fold-up water hammock that's much easier to carry than a huge vinyl float.

Promising review: "This may be my favorite float I've ever used. The mesh allows you to still be in the water, while the inflatable edge keeps you afloat." —C.H. HuPrice: $28.19

6. The perfect water bottle for people who need a little help remembering to stay hydrated (it tracks your liquid intake and syncs with your phone).

Promising review: "A really, really cool product that quickly adjusts your water habit. My fiancee and I both got one, and it turned the healthy habit of hydration into a game, much like a Fitbit or other health data tracking device. Even though it updates the app automatically (whether or not it's open on your phone), I always get sucked into opening the app after every sip just to watch it go up! Such a cool piece of technology, I'm excited to see what they'll do in the future with app updates and the like." —MattPrice: $99

7. A set of sponges that'll clean up your dirty dishes with a smile.

Promising review: "Love the suds and the look of the sponge makes me happy. Oh, and it works to clean everything!" —MGanonPrice: $9.74

8. Easy-to-apply Stila liquid eyeliner that'll stay put for a loooooooong time.

Promising review: "I have very oily skin, but particularly annoying, I also have oily eyelids. Before I found Stila All Day Waterpoof Liner, no matter what I used, I always found that it wore off or smeared by the end of the day. This product is a LIFE SAVER! So many products claim to be waterproof, but this is the only eyeliner that truly lives up to its word. It dries quickly and won't smear, smudge or transfer. It's basically tattooed to your face until you use makeup remover!" —Courtney Cameron Xifos

Price: $22

9. A collar that's basically like a Fitbit for your pet.

It gathers data throughout the day as your pet wears it. Sync it, and you'll be able to see how many steps your pal took, how long they slept, etc..

Price: $34.99

10. Lids that'll turn mason jars into multi-functional containers to use in your kitchen, craft room, bathroom... anywhere, really.

Promising review: "Just what I was looking for. I keep homemade taco seasoning, meat rubs and coarse salt in small mason jars and this lid makes it much easier to get to the spices." —Shortcake

Price: $7.99

11. A box set of Dr Seuss's classic Beginner Books.

The set includes The Cat in the Hat, Hop on Pop, Fox in Socks, Green Eggs and Ham, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.Promising review: "Wonderful way to start a Dr. Seuss collection for my granddaughter!" —LauraPrice: $27.07

12. A beautifully retro mint green bike.

Promising review: "I am SO SO in LOVE with this bike. It’s beautiful! I have never ordered anything like this on Amazon and I was very nervous about the condition it would be in once delivered and opened. It was like Christmas day back when I was a kid (I’m 54 now) when I opened that box. This is my first bike since I was a teenager with a yellow Schwinn 10 speed that I loved until it got stolen when my little brother took it up to the corner Stop-N-Go for some candy. The turquoise color that I bought it in is AMAZING." —TexasTechMom2Price: $349

13. Inexpensive backpacks for people who are already getting into the "back to school" mindset.

Promising review: "I purchased this backpack as a replacement for my daughter's book bag. She used it for school for the last few months and she loved it. It was big enough to carry her notebook and the few textbooks that she had to carry back and forth to school. She just graduated from the 8th grade and she will be using the backpack next year in high school." —Maria B.

Price: $24.99

Adults may think she looks pretty damn creepy, but kids are sure to love her.Promising review: "My daughter LOOOOOOVES HER and jumps up and down from excitement every time this doll says she's hungry or thirsty." —MarzenaPrice: $49.99

16. Glittery glue pens that come in a rainbow of colors.

Promising review: "Glitter that is contained in a gooey substrate is much better than glitter that is only restrained by a child's whims and gravity! I won't be rubbing THIS glitter out of the cat's fur...unlike the archaic glitter delivery mechanism of other products. I learned that lesson the hard way." —K. Moss

Price: $3.55

17. A grooming tool made for barking, meowing, and neighing beasts.

Apologies to the ribbiting, cawing, and hissing beasts of the world.Promising review: "I have 3 cats and and a dog. I have been inundated with fur. I have used other products in the past, but none have worked as well as the SleekEZ. I like how it does not have a handle and is more of a block with a blade, so I can better adjust the angle to get the best results. It works on my short-haired Great Dane and older cat, as well as my two long-haired kittens. I would definitely recommend this product to de-fur your fur babies." —Leslie E. SchaadPrice: $15.95

18. Fourteen rolls of packing labels that'll help make moving less of a struggle.

Promising review: "My husband thought I was being quite silly getting these stickers, but we hired movers and these meant everything ended up in the right room (and we were moving a well furnished 3000 square foot house). On some materials they came off easily when pulled, on others we found a very slow pull was required (otherwise they ripped and left residue). However, none came off during transit, so I was very satisfied. I put the corresponding stickers near stairwells and on doorways at the new house and the movers were able to work very quickly, so we saved $$$ because they finished early. Definitely worth it!" —Michelle DurandPrice: $16.99
