    1. Personalized earrings worth treating yourself to in the ~name~ of your total awesomeness.

    Etsy / Caitlyn Minimalist

    Btw, these earrings are from the Caitlyn Minimalist brand which is a small, woman-owned business based in California.

    Promising review: "These. Earrings. Are. Perfection. I love seeing my full name in script on my ears! They are so dainty and light and perfect conversation starter :-)" —Caitlin

    Get them from Caitlyn Minimalist on Etsy for $19.87 (originally $26.50; available in five font choices plus sterling silver, 18-karat gold, and rose gold)

    2. A DIY candle kit to remind yourself how ~lit~ you truly are but also to set aside some you-time to get a bit creative and light up your space.

    the left photo is the packet filled with the candle ingredients. The scent is "Bergamot White Rose Oakmoss." The center photo shows a model pouring the candle mix. The last pic is a model's hands lighting their finished candle.

    The candle mix is made with eco-friendly wax since it's 100% coconut and soy. Scents are phthalate-free and the bags are plant-based!

    Promising review: "I am loving my Siblings candles! Scent No.1 (Bergamot White Ross Oakmoss) was the first I tried out and it is incredible. Rose scents run the risk of being overpowering or cloying, but this blend is fresh and soft enough to be burned all day. The assembly process was incredibly simple and I love how it allows me to repurpose favorite jars from old candles. Your microwave may smell like a rose for a few hours but the scent does go away. Overall, I highly recommend this scent and Siblings candles overall!" —Brittni

    Get just the candle mix from Siblings for $22 or with the candle vessel for $40.

    3. A beautiful yoga mug for the ones who'll always prioritize their chakras *and* morning joe.

    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup, my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." —Brianna S.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99.

    6. A PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer & Universal Charger (yuuup from the Shark Tank show!) that'll kill 99.99% of germs using a UV light.

It's designed to fit most smartphones and is USB-chargeable.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use, it looked great and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

Btw, InBooze is a Black woman-owned Etsy shop based in Michigan. All their packets are handmade, filled with dehydrated fruits, veggies, spices, and herbs — and each kit is enough to infuse 8 to 10 cocktails. Bottoms up!

    Promising review: "I love my tote bag!!! I am using it for work and have so much space. It is unique and I love the statement it makes about black history. My order was received in a timely manner and my shopping experience was great! I am already looking/shopping around to see what I can order next." —Vontressa

    Get it from The Trinigee on Etsy for $25+ (available in three colors and three sizes).

    9. An anti-fog spray so mask breath no longer clouds your glasses when you're out and about.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The spray is safe for all non-AR-Coated lenses. It's also hypoallergenic!

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to re-apply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    10. A wearable nail polish bottle holder to make your DIY manicure sessions way less messy and easier to complete. It's made of silicone rubber which will fit various finger sizes and make it easier to clean. It's also designed to hold different nail bottle shapes and sizes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this product. It definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish so that it was in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me or was comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining the paint job. Just one tip: Move the holder to your pointer when doing your thumb. The first time I used it, I was clumsy and spilled nail polish on my couch because I held my hand sideways to paint my thumb. Dumb mistake. Haven't made it since and it's easily avoidable." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 21 colors).

    11. A kitchen knife sharpener so you can refresh your dulling knives and save money on new ones!

    model's hand running a knife through one of the slots on the knife sharpener. It has two slots.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Rather than replace my kitchen knife set, I thought I'd spent the $6 on this sharpener to see if I could save them. I was skeptical about how well it would work, but the reviews were pretty great. This little thing is fantastic! I was able to sharpen my knives really quickly and easily. I have only done my straight-edge knives and not my serrated ones because I didn't realize it could do both until I was finished. I'll do my serrated knives another time and see how well that goes, but I have high hopes due to how well it sharpened my chef's and santoku knives. My knives are roughly ten years old and have never been sharpened, so they were very, very dull. I sharpened them with the coarse blades and it worked beautifully. I am so happy with this sharpener and I was able to save a lot of money since I don't have to replace my knife set." —Breanne

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    12. A Chi automatic curling iron, because you deserve perfect curls in mere minutes. All you do is insert your hair into the chamber and the curler will automatically wrap it around the heated rod. Then, just wait until it beeps to let you know that the curl has set. The best part: the barrel protects your fingers from getting burned.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love it!! I have fine textured hair — very straight hair. I have trouble not only curling it but keeping it curled. For example the other day I left rollers in my hair for 45 minutes and got a minor wave that fell out in 10 minutes. This tool is easy and fast to use, adds shine, and the curl stays." —Alexandria

    Get it from Amazon for $72.76+ (available in five colors).

    13. OR twist and curl cream for the folks who already have curls that they want to make pop even more. This cool concoction will help restore moisture, prevent breakage, and increase elasticity so those curls go BOING, baby. 💝

    jar of curl cream
    Instagram / The Doux / Via instagram.com

    Btw, this curl cream is by The Doux, a Black-owned brand with the ILLEST hip-hop culture-themed packaging. I actually use their Big Poppa curl-defining gel and it works beautifully on my 4C hair! –Marquaysa

    Promising review: "This is a must-have! I have tried many types of creams. My staple has been the Maui Moisture Coconut Curls because of how moisturizing it is without it being too greasy. My issues with that one were that it gave no hold and was not ideal for the hot and extremely humid Houston weather. I would have to pair it with another product. This CREAM definitely gives the same moisture BUT with definition AND hold! Like, I am obsessed. It’s not cakey or flakey and does not leave my hair dry. I am so thankful and don’t mind the $15. It is sooo worth it." —Priss_Riss

    Promising review (for 4C hair specifically): "A very soft product that gives my 4C hair serious definition. My hair was moisturized for days. Definitely sticking with this product." —Lorraine

    Get it from Target for $14.99.

    14. "Shhh! I'm reading" socks so everyone will know EXACTLY what the deal is when you snuggle up with your favorite book.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These appeared exactly as advertised and arrived as stated. I love to wear them as they are comfortable and allow me to read in silence. Haha. When my husband tries to interrupt my reading, I hold up my 'Shhh!' foot and he knows to leave me be. Love them! LOL." —Dee Smith

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99.

    15. A scalp massager that'll transform your shower into a five-star salon. A relaxing scalp massage is great for getting that blood flowing to your head while simultaneously breaking down buildup (hello hairspray and dry shampoo) that's making your hair oily.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is just what I wanted! Great for scalp massage. I wanted a product that would not pull my hair, and did not have hard, plastic seams to pull or damage my hair. This is it! Very relaxing, to use. It is light and comfortable to hold. I don't have to worry about straining my hands, trying to grip this. I can control the amount of pressure perfectly without scratching my scalp. I bought one for my mom, and two for me! Love these. Great gift for the natural hair enthusiast, or anyone looking for a non-motorized scalp massager." —BunnyLove2

    Get it from Amazon for $8.59+ (available in three colors).

    16. The Echo Dot! The hangout spot in your home is about to get way cooler thanks to its ability to stream music endlessly, make hands-free calls, have Alexa answer every question imaginable, and do even more with voice recognition.

    reviewer's hand holding the Echo Dot which is circular and a pink color
    amazon.com

    If you have a smartphone, then it'll turn on lights, adjust thermostats, lock doors, and more. The device is also designed to provide multiple layers of privacy protections and controls, including a microphone "off" button that electronically disconnects the microphone. Yup, this way neither the government nor Google can get all in your business when you're chatting. 😉

    Promising review: "I am so happy with my Echo Dot and Alexa. It’s something I never knew I needed until I had it. Now, I can’t see myself without it. It has so many features. It's really a helping hand with remembering events coming up. It turns my lights on and off and works great with my ring doorbell. Now, I don't have any smart plugs in my house but definitely will be getting them just so I can use my Echo Dot and Alexa more. My kids love talking with Alexa and asking her questions. They tell her to play songs and all we are hooked on this technology. Now, I am strongly thinking of getting the Eco Show 8 to add to my home. —Fredrian

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (originally $39.99+; free shipping; available in four colors and with a Smart Plug and/or Smart Bulb add-ons).

    17. OR. The Amazon Echo Show 5 that'll be PERFECT for doing everything the Echo Dot does PLUS streaming and video calling.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We love these and have multiple in our house. With COVID and everyone working from home/doing school, they are really nice. I can drop in on my daughter to make certain that she is attentive in class. I can talk to my husband and make dinner and lunch plans all while never leaving my home office. We love these. My family will drop in on us as well. My sister and her daughter have one at their homes so we love them for that also." —Moni4u2nv

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (originally $89.99+; available in two colors and four additional add-ons; free shipping).

    18. Biodegradable hair ties because 1) you'll always need them and 2) you're probs always losing them. But these?! They're biodegradable so wherever they land when you inevitably lose 'em, you'll at least know they'll break down and return to the earth's soil instead of taking up space in some janky landfill. These hair ties are the literal circles of life and so worth dropping in your stocking.

    amazon.com

    BTW, these hair ties are also made in compostable packaging that you can recycle with no worries. Repeat after me: Saving the earth is cool. Saving the earth is fun! 🙌🏿🌎

    Promising review: "I was really excited to buy these since I'm trying to switch to more sustainable products and the main reason for needing hair ties is I always lose them (also: major bonus that there are 27). I've been using them for a few days now and am really impressed with the quality and comfort. They stay put and don't slip even when running. But, they're super soft so you don't have that hard pull when taking your hair down like with cheaper ties. I'm really impressed so far!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95 (available in a 27-count).

    19. A stretchy elastic hat that'll make for the cutest photos (and probably earn the displeasure of your furry overlords). No one understands how much you're obsessed with your cat, but it's OK.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    20. A gentle Mustela nourishing stick you'll want to keep in your bag at all times if you have dry skin. It's made with shea butter and ceramides that create a moisture-trapping barrier to keep your skin hydrated. And! It comes in a handy stick form so you can swipe it as needed.

    Mustela

    Promising review: "I purchased this product for my daughter, because her cheeks and nose were soo dry and chapped just a few days into winter. This stick glides smoothly onto her face and I can almost instantly see the relief it provides. I put a little bit of product on my cracked, chapped lips just to see and IT IS AMAZING! Super hydrating, long-lasting — I LOVE IT...so much that I ordered one for myself the very next day. If you have chapped lips or cheeks, I highly recommend this product." —Chelsea Boyd

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    21. A cat sock set with adorable kitten ears sticking up on the ankles so that even if you don't have a real cat to cuddle with, you'll at least have one close to your feet. You'll get five pairs of socks in the set in an assortment of colors.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My sister got me these as a gift and they're adorable. I wear a 6.5 shoe size and they fit perfectly. They're also long enough so that when I wear my ankle rain boots, they don't scratch me. If you're a cat lover, these socks are for you!!" —Marissa Resnick

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six styles).

    22. A customized AirPods case so you keep those buds safe, sound, and ready to use. (Your name on there will also come in handy if you want to differentiate all the cases in the house).

    Reviewer's white Airpods case that says the name "Shakeeya" in a cursive font
    amazon.com

    It's anti-slip, scratch- and dirt-resistant. It's also compatible with AirPods wireless charging and Airpods Pro. BTW, this personalized case is from a small business in Amazon's Handmade section called Marblefy store.

    Promising review: "I must say this is a great product for a great price. It adds the protection I need from scratches when I take my AirPods in and out of my purse and when I lay them around. The name customization is nice and the font is neat. However, I did order two cases and one of my cases did not have the name centered. I was able to reach out to the seller and they were prompt and responsive about being sure to fix it and they allowed me to keep my original one, which I thought was very courteous of them even though I was ready to ship it back! I received my order within a reasonable time and I received my replacement just as fast. The keychain that attaches to the case is sturdy and handier than I thought. The AirPod cables are great for around the neck usage and it makes them harder to drop or lose while working out or doing a lot of moving. I would buy again and again from this seller. Quality product and customer service." —Shakeeya

    Get it from the Marblefy store on Amazon Handmade for $13.99.

    23. A hair finishing stick for cleaning up all those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns. It's basically like a mascara wand coated in natural plant oils for your hair.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I rarely ever leave reviews, but THIS is amazing!! I have naturally frizzy hair that is also wavy and curly. I have a lot of breakage around the crown and this stuff sleeks it back but it doesn’t make it look greasy or crunchy! I suggest taking the mascara wand and wiping off the excess on the tube before applying so you don’t apply too much. When I apply too much all you have to do is let it dry and then scratch your fingernails from front to back to break it up and it still creates a sleek look without any crunchiness. I love this stuff so much I need to get another for my car on those days that my mom hair is looking terrible." —Adriana

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    24. OR! Mielle Organics edge control gel for folks who prefer or need something more than a smoothing oil to achieve a sleek look when they want it. It's the perfect size for keeping it at home or for travel.

    the edge control gel jar
    Target

    But let's be clear: You don't *have* to slick or tame your edges. They're perfectly beautiful in their natural curly state. Feel free to check out our awesome post "Just A Friendly PSA That You Don't HAVE To Lay Your Edges Down If You Don't Wanna."

    Promising review: "I've used others that had zero hold and was skeptical if this would work, but all the gray flyaways were making me unsettled! I am super impressed with the holding power of this gel. It is very thick and I kind of smushed it on my fingers before smoothing it on, making sure to use a thin layer... My hair is still soft, there is no thick buildup, it brushes out without stickiness, and it holds those gray flyaways all day! I'm OK with the quantity for the price as I don't care what a product costs if it works. I have already bought a second jar to keep one at work. I love it!" —Honeysmother

    Get it from Target for $6.99 and don't forget the gentle brush.

    25. An Anastasia Beverly Hills palette that you definitely shouldn't wait on anyone to bless you with. It has buttery mattes and soft shimmers that'll BLESS your blending life the very first time you use it.

    Promising review: "While it's not often that I wear lipstick or gloss during these times of wearing masks, when I am home I am never without it! This lip gloss is wonderful. Not sticky and lasts! It's made me feel much better and put together, even though I'm home more!" —Kristine

    Get it from Mented for $15 OR Amazon for $15 (available in seven shades).

    28. A set of door opener key chains so you can stay hands-free when you're out and about. These'll help you open doors and mailboxes but you could also use it to press buttons in elevators, on ATMs, and any other public surfaces. Take that, germs!

    TheresaRose

    My coworker Kayla, an editor here at BuzzFeed, bought these and ADORES them:

    "I recently bought a couple of these and had one of those very real, WHY DIDN'T I BUY ONE OF THESE SOONER moments. They do an amazing job at keeping your necklaces from tangling as you wear them, and I love that I can layer multiple of my favorites at once. I am forever sold on these." BTW, these are made by a small business based in San Diego, California!

    Get it from Theresa Rose on Etsy for $12.49+ (available in gold and silver, and with two, three, or four clasps).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My skin is super, super sensitive and usually when I pop pimples, they end up looking worse than before (especially with blackheads). This kit is so amazing!!! I just poke the pimple or blackhead with the sharp end and then use the loop-shaped thing and the redness goes away in about half an hour instead of multiple days!!!! The kit makes my blackheads disappear, reduces bumps that usually aren't poppable to just a small spot that goes away within a day, and makes it way less painful to pop hormonal acne!" —Sarah Velasquez

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three colors).

    amazon.com

    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

    33. A jewelry-cleaning pen to make your jewels sparkle and satisfy your itch to clean everything. It's compact enough to fit in your purse so you can use it on the go, yet it's powerful enough to clean days', months', and weeks' worth of dirt and grime that's dulled your stones' shine.

    top photo shows a reviewers ring looking dark and dull. the bottom photo shows the same reviewer's ring after it's been cleaned. It looks clear and shiny.
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I actually don’t understand how this works so well. I used to drop my rings in a bit of watered down Windex, let them soak, then scrub with a soft toothbrush, rinse, and dry. That process took about 15 minutes, and even then my rings, and particularly the stones, were not flawless-looking afterward. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STICK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally sound like an infomercial talking about this thing. It’s incredible. First you dispense a little product, and you don’t even have to take your ring off!!! Then you scrub for approximately three seconds, rinse, and BAM!!!! Holy sparkles, Batman. My precious stones have never looked better. Even rings that looked pretty good before, I couldn’t believe how sparkly they were after this. Dazzle is right I guess. Consider me a lifetime customer." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.45.

    34. An at-home teeth whitening kit that's a heck of a lot cheaper than a trip to the dentist.

    Promising review: "This really works for whitening teeth if used for 10 minutes every few days. I use the gel inside my custom retainers and it works wonders!

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    35. A terrifyingly hilarious keychain for any fan of The Office that'll make you smile after a long day when you grab your keys to open the front door and see Dwight wearing the CPR dummy's face.

    Promising review: "This keychain is superior to other keychains. Since receiving it, through concentrating I can raise and lower my cholesterol at will." —Rebekah F.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    36. A stoneware pie bird that'll vent steam from the filling as your pie bakes in the oven to prevent it from boiling over and ruining the look of your beautiful pie. You're gonna score a 10 in taste ~and~ presentation at the table this year — and you'll have your own stocking-stuffing self to thank!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's amazing what difference this bird can make to your pie! I definitely made the best apple pie I've ever made with this little device. For the first time ever, my pie did not spill out juices onto the pan below or into the stove and the crust was flaky and crisper than it has ever been. I really cannot speak highly enough of how well this pie bird worked. If you make pies, then you need one of these!" —Happylakedreamer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in five colors).

    37. A roll-on migraine stick so you can find relief from the inevitable mind-numbing headache that follows holiday dinners with your in-laws.

    Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    It's made with a mixture of peppermint, spearmint, lavender, and coconut oil, and can be applied to the temples, forehead, and back of the neck when you feel a headache coming on.

    Promising review: "I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5" —Katie B.

    My colleague tested and loved this. Read her full review on the Migrastil Migraine Stick here to learn more.

    38. A tiny library-inspired change purse that'll be perfect if you're a millennial dinosaur like me who ~actually~ remembers checking out physical books with these lil' cards in 'em. This thing won't take up much space in your pocket or bag but it'll take up a TON of space in your nostalgic heart because it's just way too friggin' cute.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    BY THE FREAKIN' WAY, one reviewer takes this pouch with her to book signings and has her fave authors sign and date each slot which is FREAKIN' genius. It'll turn your throwback change purse into a really beautiful keepsake. And in case you're not an avid reader but know someone who is, this will also make a gift for them that they'll always, always treasure. Take it from this bookworm. Oh, you'll also be happy to know that this brand, Out of Print, donates books to communities to support literacy. So far, the brand has donated over 3 million books.

    Promising review: "I've purchased this item a couple of times now. I bought it as a gift and liked it so much that I purchased it for myself. I saw one reader using the tote bag version of this to get author signatures and thought that was a great idea. I'll be using this pouch to do the same! Love it!" —Joy R. Tiffany

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in 30 book-inspired styles), the tote bag version for $20, AND check out the entire literature-themed brand, Out of Print.

    40. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, because no one quite just comprehends how much you love foods that are sweet and spicy. Drizzle it on pizza, ice cream, waffles, wings, cheeseboards, and even in cocktails to create something un-bee-lievably delicious.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes with. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat. So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana/strawberry/blueberry) with cottage cheese and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A sandwich....so delicious!" —Sleeps in Rain

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48 (available in packs of one, two, three, six, and 12).

    43. A 5-in-1 wine stopper to instantly elevate that $7 bottle of wine you bought as a last-minute contribution to a holiday dinner. It's also an aerator, stopper, pourer, filter, and re-corker.

    Promising review: "I wouldn't consider myself a wine connoisseur by any means, but I typically have a bottle or so float through my house each week. This wine corker takes the hassle out of pulling the original cork out, it is easy to clean, it makes the wine taste better, and hello it's $5! It would make a GREAT cheap gift for a wine drinker. At the moment, I only have the one, but I'm planning to grab a few more to keep on hand." —jason lebeda

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    44. And a pack of wine condoms for when the party ~finishes early~ and there's still pinot left over.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are amazing. I bought them as a Christmas gift for my wine-loving sister-in-law. She loved them! I ended up buying myself some too. You can use them more than once. They are slightly hard to get on, but that just assures a tight seal. I especially like that you do not have to worry about your wine stopper's height fitting in the fridge." —sznic

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $14.97 (available in a pack of six).

    45. A mini Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy who'll bring joy to your life. Look at this lil' guy just flapping his arms and body, 100% content with his life. *This* is what I aspire to be. *This* is what we should all aspire to be.

    Promising review: "I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the 9-volt battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next! As I turned on the wacky waving inflatable tube man I knew I have a friend for life. Someone you can really count on cheering you up when you are feeling down. He brought me such joy I started to cry with laughter and happiness." —Robert Wurstner

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    46. Or, a screaming goat who sits on a tree stump and shrieks whenever you touch it (honestly, same) if that's more your style.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spend about 90% of my day silently screaming at the computer because, well, welcome to customer service. Since this little goat arrived, I no longer look like I am practicing for my appearance on Jerry Springer. I just push the little goat. He screams (but not in a disruptive way). I smile. I am no longer annoyed. I survived peak season because of this goat. I owe my sanity to you, screaming goat." —Gab&Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $7.81.
