Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A heart-shaped waffle-maker for anyone who loves a pretty plated brunch meal. You can whip this out for Valentine's Day and really any day you want to show your belly (and your Instagram!) some extra love.

    Promising review: "Made a perfect waffle every time. Made me smile and reconnect with the fun of cooking. This was so easy to use and fun!" —Rhinestonelife

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (also available in 10 other styles).

    2. Handmade cloud-shaped LED pendant lights to transform a room into one gorgeous evening sky. They're specifically designed to bring a soft glow to a nursery or toddler's room but will add a little sky-inspired fun to any room you want.

    The Cloud Lady / Etsy

    The light has eight modes (including "twinkle/flash" and "wave") and it comes with a remote control so you can change it or turn it off completely without having to reach up to your ceiling every time.

    Promising review: "I just got my cloud light today and it's so pretty! I haven't gotten to hang it up yet but I'm so excited to. It looks just like the pictures I've seen here and on Tumblr. It's the perfect night light for my room." —C.T.

    Get it from The Cloud Lady on Etsy for $60 (available in two light styles and with AA batteries OR a plug-in cord).

    3. Color-changing lip balms with real tiny flowers inside that'll adjust to the temperature and humidity of your lips to create your perfect shade of pink. The lip balms' pretty packaging also makes them perfect for displaying in your bathroom, on a dresser, or on a vanity.

    The lipsticks with different flowers inside.

    The balm is made with olive oil, vitamin E, beeswax, and aloe vera to nourish your lips and prevent dryness.

    Promising review: "I'm so happy with these! They are not only adorable to look at but the colors are all beautiful shades of pink. The cute little flower inside makes them almost too pretty to use but I really like how they can be used to create your own personal shade." —Kelly J. Fleet

    Get them from Amazon for $14.88 (available in two styles).

    4. A light curtain to cloak your room in a soft, pretty glow and an overall relaxing mood. The curtain is waterproof, has eight light settings controlled by a remote, and can be used indoors or outdoors. Layer the light strings with sheer curtains to add to your room's ambience.

    By the way, lots of reviewers noted that these curtains can be difficult to hang up by yourself because the lights get tangled but many shared a hack: Don't untie the long lights from each other until you've already hung up the curtain.

    Promising review: "I am so in love with these lights! They were so easy to put up (took me about five minutes). They add such beauty to my room. I am so happy with this purchase." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 and the sheer curtains for $14.99+ (available in 11 sizes and 12 colors).

    5. A vacuum-sealed tumbler so you can sip and be glam at the same time, anywhere you go. The stainless steel design has a double-walled exterior and is meant to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. It'll also come with two straws and a leak-free flip lid.

    Promising review: "I have both the Aqua Ara and the Moonstone, and both are even more shimmery and pretty in person. But they're not just attractive. They work, also. I frequently take my kids places and most of the time, I bring iced coffee that I leave in the car so I don't have to carry the cup. This week, temps were in the upper 90s. I left my cup half full of iced coffee in my van for three hours. To clarify, all windows and doors were closed. It was a sunny day, the van was parked in direct sunlight, and the tumbler was initially less than a third full of ice cubes. When I got back to the car, the outside of the cup was barely warm and the ice inside the cup was barely disturbed. I couldn't touch the steering wheel right away but I was able to take a drink of my still perfectly cool coffee that still had ice floating in it. It's a great cup and I'm glad that I have two of them!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in 45 styles, three sizes, and comes in a customizable option too so you can add your name or a cute slogan).

    6. A set of mini macaron trinket boxes to use as a holder for small jewelry, coins, office supplies or simply for bright and pretty desk swag.

    Several containers of different colors and they're shaped like macarons.

    Promising review: "These little macaron containers are perfect. I am using them for various crafting purposes and to travel. I use them to travel and put my smaller stud earrings in them. I take them with me for paperclips and stuff in office when I have meetings on the go. The colors are very pretty and the quantity is more than adequate for the cost. They are very nicely made and were individually packaged. This is a fun item especially if you are short on space and only need small storage." —Marie70

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two sizes).

    7. An adjustable bamboo bathtub tray that'll give your bathroom a pretty spa-like feel. It'll also prop up food, drinks, tablets, books, hopes, dreams and whatever else you need for your untimed soak sesh. Sigh. You won't be getting up for a minute and that's exactly how you like it, right?

    A bamboo tray sitting on top of a bathtub filled with pink water and flowers.

    The caddy has two side-trays, extendable handles, and accessory slots for extra storage.

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to get one of these. Great quality product. It looks great on my garden tub and holds my book and batch accouterments while I bath. It makes my bathroom look like a spa. Awesome!" —BethGA

    Get it from Amazon for $46.97 (available with a 100% money-back guarantee).

    8. Moon cycle garland to give any empty wall space in your home the golden touch.


    Promising review: "I was pretty nervous ordering this because there weren't a ton of reviews on the gold moon phase. When this arrived I thought I would have to assemble it but it was already put together and nicely packaged so the chains didn't tangle! The quality is so much better than I expected and you can see in my pictures the moons are pretty thick/heavy. They gave me gold matching screws to hang it but I just used a thumbtack instead. Love this!" —Holly Grote

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98 (available in gold or silver and in three sizes).

    9. Porter bowls so you can take your lunch in style and have everyone in the work cafeteria (or OK, around your desk) wanting to know where you got your pretty yet minimalist lunch container.


    And you can thank them and confidently let 'em know that yes, you too think they're really pretty. 💁🏿‍♀️ And aside from these bowls being gorg, they're also airtight, dishwasher- and microwave-safe so you can tote your food without fear of it spilling. Peep what BuzzFeed writer Rachel Dunkel thinks of these bowls:

    "I use my Porter Bowl basically every time I bring my lunch to work. The lid vacuum seals tightly, and I've never had a problem with leaks. It's both microwavable and dishwasher-safe which is obviously a huge win in my book. And it just feels nice to eat lunch out of a real piece of dishware, rather than flimsy plastic. I have the ceramic version and haven't had any problems with scratching. It's rubber coated, so it's easy to travel with and doesn't slide around. I would personally like more as gifts, please!"

    Get them from Amazon for $25+ (available in ceramic or plastic and in 10 colors).

    10. A set of decorative hair clips to make your hair look fancy in a ~snap~. They'll also look pretty just sitting out on your dresser even on days when you're not wearing them.

    A package of hair clips in all different designs.

    Promising review: "I love these! The quality and price are amazing. I tried Target, Ulta, CosmoProf, and various other stores looking for pearl barrettes but I either couldn’t find what I was looking for or didn’t want to pay $15 for a single clip. This set came with so many pretty, trendy, and wearable styles! I will say, the barrette-style clips are larger than average, but I really liked that about them. They photograph so well. Buy them!!" —Stella

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    11. Red heel–inspired pushpins so you can ~pump~ up the look of your vision boards or office cubicle.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love these. I am a shoe lover and it set my board off at work." —Amelia Davenport

    Get them from Amazon for $8 (available in five styles).

    12. Cuccio Revitalize Cuticle Oil – to give your vanity the high-brow design of a pricy perfume bottle. It'll look pretty on your dresser and will make your cuticles and nails look even prettier!

    A circular bottle of cuticle oil with a dropper-style top.

    Promising review: "I love this cuticle oil. In fact, it may be the best I've had so far! It arrived yesterday in a cute little glass bottle wrapped securely. I immediately opened it and put some on my cuticles as they were dry from housework I had been doing earlier. This oil is very moisturizing and the smell is AMAZING!!! I love this and will be reordering in the future!!!!" —Jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $6.90+ (available in two scents).

    13. An egg maker because yes having eggs in minutes to get your protein up is convenient but ~also~ because a pastel-hued gadget is def a way to prettify your kitchen counter.

    the egg cooker is sitting with six eggs inside of it. Sitting right next to it is a plate of deviled eggs and another boiled egg cut in half

    Reviewers are also obsessed with how well the cooker works! Also, heads up: When the egg cooker was originally made, it had a disturbing-sounding buzzer that basically screamed bloody murder, per the reviews. Now, the egg cooker apparently has a pleasant ringtone sound to kindly let you the eggs are ready.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim. We love boiled eggs but did I really need to spend money on something that I already could make in a pot? Yes. Yes, I did. This thing is worth every penny. It's cheaply made but it does the job perfectly. And I never have to worry about over or under-cooking. Love this random purchase." —Stacey M.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.11+ (available in two pastel colors and three additional colors).

    14. Gorgeous, sleek car trash cans that are as pretty as your travel mugs. They'll fit inside most cup holders and help minimize all the car-bage that accumulates in any whip., Amazon

    Promising review: "It's perfect for small trash like straw wrappers. I have one for me and one to share! I love the diamond design! Super cute!" —Dshirley

    Get it from Amazon for $13.69+ (available in a pack of two).

    15. A handmade zodiac jewelry dish to help you keep up with all your rings and things while repping your astrology sign. This gilded trinket will make a super cute addition to any counter or desk you sit it on.

    White jewelry dishes with gold rims and the zodiac sign scribed inside of it in matching gold.
    Etsy / The Painted Press

    Get it from The Painted Press on Etsy for $16 (available in the 11 zodiac signs).

    16. A beautiful mermaid bookmark so you can always dive right back into a story in the exact place that you left off.


    Yay for book jewelry!

    Promising review: "My friend had a dangly bookmark and I really liked the idea of it so I searched them on Amazon and I found this mermaid one. I am OBSESSED with mermaids so of course, I ordered one in record time! It's so beautiful and I use it all of the time. It's one of my top favorite purchases from Amazon to date." —Jaelyn

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (also available in a feather design).

    17. 3D decals to turn your walls (and honestly, anything else you choose) into a pretty butterfly sanctuary. The butterflies come in a pack of 108 with sticky adhesive to attach them to surfaces with ease.

    A pink wall with a line of 3D butterflies that look like they're flying by the wall.

    FYI: Amazon reviewers noted that they put these pretty winged bugs on their walls but also EVERYWHERE else. From poster projects for school to Eiffel Tower home decor to birthday cakes to refrigerators — these wall decals are extremely multipurpose. There is even a set that glows in the dark!

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE THEM! I just wanted something pretty to look at in my bedroom so I put them on my wall. I put them up over a week ago and wanted to wait before giving my review. So far, ONLY ONE has fallen and it was one that was on my dresser that I believe I stuck there and rearranged it so partially my fault. I can positively say they will stay on walls and pictures with NO PROBLEM as long as you follow the directions." —Gabrielle

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four different styles).

    18. A desk pad to pretty up a boring workspace so it looks more like an inviting creativity hub instead of a spot for busywork. The mat can also add more color to your desk, protect its surface, be used as a background for taking photos, and double as a mouse pad.


    One reviewer used the desk pad as a mat for a makeup vanity which is SUPER smart since it can prevent beauty products from staining lighter surfaces.

    Promising review: "This is a super simple but elegant addition to my desk. I purchased the pink one and it contrasts nicely with my dark expresso wooden desk. The mouse moves easy and steady on the surface and has made it much easier to write on my desk. Since the desk is wooden, it's collected small imperfections over the years, making writing on the desk sometimes difficult. I would definitely recommend for new or old desks. New to prevent nicks and dents, and for the old ones to cover them up. 🙂" —Deleah

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three sizes and nine colors).

    19. Mean Girls magnets because only you can really count up how many times a day quotes or references from that movie come out of your mouth. The whole set will look, like, really pretty just chilling on your fridge door.

    Mean girls magnets with different Mean Girls quotes. A pair of hands is holding the burn book magnet open.
    Urban Outfitters

    The set comes with 10 magnets And YES, one of them is an actual mini 34-page replica of the infamous Burn Book. You're soooo welcome.

    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with this magnet set. It's the best thing ever." —Maria Julia

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $9.95.

    20. A diamond cleaning stick to remove the gunk from your jewelry and make it look just as pretty and twinkly as the day you got it.

    Promising review: "After one use of the Diamond Dazzle Stik, my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster for its beauty and for what it represents... And now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity." —Liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $8.55.

    21. A yoga mat with a vibrant, stylish print for showing off your personality.,

    Promising review: "I've been using Yoga Design Combo Mat for a few years now. I love that it's very grippy. My hands and feet sweat a lot even if I'm not in a hot yoga class and this one provides great absorbency. It's super soft to the touch and the designs are all beautiful. It's not super light to carry BUT this also means it doesn't slide around on the floor when you're practicing asana. I also own the travel mat and that's the one to take on your travels. This one is my daily go-to." —Lorraine C. Ladish

    Get it from Amazon for $78 (available in 18 styles).

    22. And a vibrant Queen & Slim–inspired notebook to show off your obsession with the beautifully shot film.

    24. Empty refillable butterfly perfume bottles to give you something super beautiful to pour your favorite body sprays, essential oils, toners, or whatever else you want to repackage into them.


    Promising review: "OMG! It's so much prettier in person. It's dainty, detailed, and beautiful." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.39+ (available in four different styles).

    25. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara because your larger-than-life battable eyelashes are going to be the prettiest thing in the room if nothing else.

    A woman showing her long eyelashes with the mascara on.

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    26. Ecotools makeup brush cleansing shampoo so you can get your brushes back to looking like the super pretty vanity eye candy they're truly supposed to be. (Psst... It's also verrry hygienic to clean your brushes regularly so there's that.)

    Promising review: "OMG. This stuff has totally changed my brush cleaning routine. I had been using just my regular makeup remover that I use for my face, or occasionally the liquid beautyblender cleanser for really dirty brushes. But this stuff is of no comparison. I had a Sephora Pro domed foundation brush that I use with my liquid foundation (Fenty) and hadn't cleaned it in months! I know, ew. I tried the BB cleanser and it was ok but it didn't get nearly as clean as I wanted. Enter the Ecotools brush shampoo. After the first swirl on my wash mat, I could see LOADS of foundation coming out of the brush. It took a little while since there was so much product caked in the brush but I finally got the water to run clear. After my brush dried, I inspected it and it was as if it was BRAND FREAKING NEW! And no residue. I couldn't believe it! Bottom line, if you're like me and put off washing your makeup brushes until they're naaasty, you need this brush shampoo. It will change your life." —Peggy L.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99. ALSO, this makeup brush shampoo made our January list of Amazon products that scored 1,000+ five-star reviews.

    27. Ombre makeup brushes with pink-tipped bristles that are ~almost~ too pretty to even dirty up with makeup — only ~almost~ though.

    Glittery makeup brushes with an ombre design on their handles featuring pink, blue, and gold. They are laid out on a surface.

    Promising review: "I wasn't planning on having these for use. I just wanted something to add to my collection that was pretty but I was also shocked by the performance. They applied my liquid foundation and powders flawlessly and somehow they feel and LOOK SO MUCH BETTER in person... I mean, I was just totally in shock. My friend tried them out and ended up ordering her own. These are my new favorites. I have now ordered a bigger set to have ALL the brushes. Usually, you get what you pay for but in this case, I feel like I made out like a bandit. Excellent value!" —Niffer

    Get them from Amazon for $17.98 (comes with 16 brushes in one set).

    28. A bedside smartphone vase to give your nightstand a little extra decor and to keep your phone sitting pretty and ready for viewing at any time.

    A ceramic flower vase with a ridge sticking out of the front on the bottom where you can sit your phone on.
    Uncommon Goods

    The ridge at the bottom has an open space to stick your charger's cord through and power the phone up while it sits. Also, heads up: It doesn't come with flowers. You get to customize the look even more by adding in your own and switching them out when you want a pop of color or a different look altogether.

    Promising review: "I was looking for something unique for my daughter — something she could use that's still pretty. This fits the bill! I love it." —Deb JW

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $32 (available in two colors).

    29. A golden sloth hook to hang your keys or bag on and to provide glitzy decor when there's nothing hanging on it at all.

    a metal fixture shaped like a sloth (and with an engraved sloth face). One of the sloth arms operates as the hook.
    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $8.
