    1. A kitty face candle because sometimes friends and fam think of bigger things to give you and forget just how much you love small smell-goods. This candle is just as ~purr~ty as it can be and will fill any room up in your house with the sweet smell of vanilla and caramel.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six cutesy styles).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The five-piece set is made of thick plastic so it's dishwasher-safe and the brand offers a lifetime replacement guarantee!

    Promising review: "My husband absolutely loves the chopsticks I got him! They are better than I expected and longer than I expected them to be and very good quality!!" —Brooke

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    3. A feather pen for the writer in you because no one's ever gonna think of this niche vintage-inspired find. It'll come with an antique-style base to stand it up on and look so gorgeous sitting atop your desk. When people walk in your home office, they're gonna feel like they've entered the abode of a V.I.P and, well, it's true!

    Amazon

    One reviewer noted that they used it as the pen for their wedding guest book! Others used it for other party guest books, as a prop for plays, and to actually write with on the regular.

    Promising review: "This is a nice quality pen and it looked great at my wedding. I'm keeping it at my desk to write with because it looks so nice." —Crystal Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $10.01+ (available in ivory and white).

    4. A kitty spoon that'll hang on the side of your tea and coffee cups so you can stir, sip, and hang it when you don't need it. This thing is su-purr cute!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    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 $1.01.

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

    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.

    6. 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).

    7. "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.

    8. 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

    Promising review: "Best unnecessary purchase I’ve made this year 😂 totally worth it, easy to put on kitty (no Velcro or snaps), super cute, nice and soft, fit well. 10/10 would recommend!" —Tsmith13

    Get it from Amazon for $6.75.

    9. 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.

    10. 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 $64.99+ (available in three colors).

    11. An adorable squishy night light so you can create the perfect ambiance for a relaxing night in that involves a lot of Netflix. Cycle between seven colors and light modes with a gentle tap.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These kitty lights are super adorable, super fun, and super loved by my kid. I bought this light as a gift for my daughter for her birthday... she loves it. The kitty is soft and squishy, the light colors are bright and pretty, and it has a good battery life... I loved it so much that I bought another for a friend's daughter. Great little light." —KMMR

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    12. A 3D sloth mug that'll perfectly sum up how you feel whenever you're too far away from bedtime. This sloth mug also doubles as a thermal cup so your drinks won't cool off too quickly.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this and would order again. This mug is not just adorable but it does a good job keeping my coffee and tea hot also. This would make a wonderful gift for someone also." —Teresa Bonett

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two sloth styles).

    13. A bright Air pods case set to keep your precious earbuds scratch-free and safely tucked away so you don't lose them while you're out moving and shaking. The set includes the pretty case, a pair of air pods, and a free pom-pom keychain accessory.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This case is perfect for both protection and fashion. The color options available are perfect for those who want a stylish case at the same time. The pom-pom included is another cute addition although if you have a cat then you'll want to keep your air pods safe because mine would not leave the pom-poms alone. Additionally, the case comes with rubber tips which really make them more comfortable in my ear and it really increases the audio quality. There's also a band to put around your neck so if you're active and they fall out, you don't have to worry much. Side Note: This color is amazing." —Keeanu

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in 13 colors).

    14. 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 $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    15. 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 $12.99 (available in six styles).

    16. Biotin shampoo to give yourself the gift of a cleaner, healthier scalp! Soooo many reviewers credited this shampoo with helping to thicken the thin areas in their hair and preventing breakage and they've got the before-and-after photos to prove it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff actually works. I've had thinning and recession over the years (stress-related) and after a month of use, I can say I'm happy with my purchase. It absolutely makes your hair grow in length, very quickly but I've also seen new growth along my hairline! I use this in addition to a moisturizing conditioner and have had no trouble at all with damage, drying, or a smell." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    17. Biodegradable hair ties because — stay with me here — you'll always need them and if you're like me, you're always losing them. Every few months, you replace hair ties that magically disappear but at least these are biodegradable so wherever they land when they leave your possession, 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 and all the others you stuff this season!

    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: "Being in grappling sports, I run through a ton of hair ties. It had me thinking about the environmental effects of numerous non-degradable hair ties and their packaging. That how I came across this product. These hair ties are high-quality and worth the money. They hold my hair in place throughout my training which I can't say the same for many other brands." —Micka4evr

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

    18. A set of color-changing lip balms with flowers inside for anyone with chronically dry lips who's tried just about every other chapstick.

    The lipsticks with different flowers inside.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These lipsticks are so cute, so magical. The color that mine settles on my lips is subtle and not very dramatic. It almost gives me the feeling of wearing lip balm, which is my go-to for all things lips, so this was perfect!" —Daisy L. Alvarez

    Get them from Amazon for $14.98 (available in two styles).

    19. Mean Girls magnets because only you know how many times a day quotes or references from that movie come out of your mouth. The Burn Book magnet actually opens up so you can read it and isn't this whole set, like, really pretty?!

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

    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. Pink Miracle Shoe Cleaner Kit that'll turn back the hands of time on the shoes you adore but haven't worn in a while because they've seen better days. This cleaner will kick the dirt off of any shoes made of leather, vinyl, nubuck, suede, and canvas — with just a few drops! If you ever threw up in your mouth a little after getting a stain on your favorite shoes because you thought it would never come out — then this cleaner will be your new jam.

    amazon.com

    This product comes with one scrubbing brush. It was also made in the U.S.A!

    Promising review: "Holy cow. This is my first review on Amazon. I was just so shocked I had to share. I wear these suede Vans and just decided to accept the fact that they were super dirty and would be until I retired them. I tried dry brushing, wet brushing, wiping with a towel and soap and none of it made a significant difference. I ordered this Pink Miracle on a whim and figured it’d be good to add to my collection of shoe polish and whatnot. I decided to just try it out on these Vans and I was blown away! I followed the instructions and wet the brush, added a little of the solution (thought to myself ‘Pfft this is runny and it’s not gonna do anything’), and lightly scrubbed the shoe. The first wipe literally erased the dirt from the shoe and the same for the canvas part. Then the rubber. This is basically the 'Magic Eraser' for shoes. They look brand new aside from the laces and if I bleach or replace those, it’ll be like a new pair of shoes. I immediately went downstairs to get my phone to take a photo of the difference and grab three more pairs of shoes to try out. The most noticeable difference was the Vans though but I think that was because of the contrast of brown dirt in the black suede. This also worked incredibly well to brighten up the rubber on the shoes I tested. I’m so satisfied with this shoe cleaner. They weren’t kidding when they called it, 'Pink Miracle!' —Margot

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    21. 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 you’re 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.

    22. 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 an affordable and helpful device yet may sit at a price point that isn't something you'd want your friends and fam to pay for and give you. It's designed to fit most smartphones and is USB-chargeable.

    A black square case (the size of a large tablet but way thicker) is sitting on a surface. It has a lid which is open. The case has a phone (looks like a droid) sitting inside of it with a blue screen.
    amazon.com

    You're gonna need a wider stocking to fit this in but, hey, they make those. Also, this is your annual reminder that HEY, YOUR PHONE IS DIRTY AND IT NEEDS TO BE CLEANED BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU HAVEN'T DONE IT SINCE THAT RAZOR PHONE YOU HAD IN HIGH SCHOOL.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in 10 colors) AND the wide stocking for $14.99. ALSO, read our "24 Inexpensive 'Shark Tank' Products People Actually Swear By" post for more!

    23. A blackhead remover kit because no one else knows that you need to tend to your blackheads in a more healthy way instead of popping them with your fingers. Since you know yourself, treat yourself with these tools that'll encourage you to keep hands off!

    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 $7.99+ (available in three colors).

    24. Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara that'll give you lush pause-the-room lashes — no falsies involved.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    25. 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.

    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 afterwards. I thought it did the job. ENTER DIAMOND DAZZLE STICK! I bought this after reading a BuzzFeed list and now I literally I 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 $5.49+ (available in a one-, two-, and four-pack).

    Instagram / Anastasia Beverly Hills / Via instagram.com, Anastasia Beverly Hills

    True story: The Jackie Aina X Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette saved my best friend's entire wedding party after the makeup artist she booked ghosted her the morning of. It worked on everyone's varying skin types and tones! Jussst sayin'. —Marquaysa

    Promising review: "I own several of the ABH palettes including Soft Glam and the Mario ones. The Jackie Aina one set the standard of what a palette should be. I can easily use every color without having to think about laying down the right primer first to get it to show up on my deep brown skin. Also, the colors blend beautifully into one another! I’m so grateful that she took the opportunity to create this amazing eyeshadow palette with Anastasia Beverly Hills!" —BlkLadyChemist

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    28. A primer that'll transform your face into a smooth, even canvas for your makeup. It's made with green tea extract and collagen to protect and moisturize your skin.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I wanted to give this product 10 stars.. But was only limited to five :( This stuff is AMAZING!!!! I'm almost 30 and my face has become super oily...like I can fry chicken on it by the end of the day. So for months I've neglected wearing any kind of foundation or makeup in general. After reading reviews I figured i would give this a try. The glow it gives you is AWESOME!!! It makes my skin so soft. I'm probably going to wear just this and no foundation 50% of the time. I went for it and did my whole face and ladies, you know that could mean several steps of products. After the Texas heat...and the sun...and amounts of sweat, my face was PERFECT......STILL! No oil...no smears...no pores. This is literally sent from heaven!!!! My ONLY dislike is the fact that you cant purchase this in five-gallon buckets!" —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $13.90.

    29. A pack of mindfulness cards, because you're really good at hiding your stress but it's taking a toll on your mental and emotional health. This'll help you learn to experience more awareness, calmness, and joy in your day-to-day existence.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very nicely organized. Some cards are for immediate contemplation, while others are things to consider during the day. I've incorporated into a morning routine." —Chris G

If you use it consistently, you can expect a set of pearly whites that are two to eight shades whiter than before.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been looking for a home teeth whitening kit that was effective and not harsh or harmful and I'm so glad I came across this one! The very first time I tried it, I left it on for 20 minutes and instantly my teeth looked so much whiter. I opted to do the custom tray fit which was super easy to adjust. My only recommendation is to be careful not let gel go to your gums or teeth because it does sting a little bit. Other than that it's convenient and effective." —Evenny

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    31. 1 Page At A Time, a daily journal for anyone who needs a creative outlet. It's filled with 365 prompts that'll inspire you to draw, list, reflect, share, and write whatever you feel.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this book thinking it would be prompts for writing exercises. I sure was wrong. I opened it up and flipped through the pages and then decided to just get into the spirit of things and I can tell you it's a lot of fun. It's whimsical, happy and challenging at the same time. I look forward to using this book daily and see where the next creative adventure takes me. Always makes me smile that's for sure." —K9Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $14.53.

    32. 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 all the potlucks and other shindigs you bring your treats to — 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.

    33. 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    34. 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.

    35. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, because no one quite 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).

    36. 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.

    Amazon

    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 $5.56.

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

    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 stoppers height fitting in the fridge." —sznic

    38. 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

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

    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

    40. Money soap, because no one listens to you when you say you'd rather just get cash instead of gifts you won't use. Inside every bar is a $1, $5, $10, $20, or $50 bill — and yes, some Amazon reviewers have found the $50 bill.

    Promising review: "I received one from my grandma last Christmas and I enjoyed it so much I bought it as a gift for my dad, brother, and boyfriend. I only got a dollar in mine, and we haven't found out what the boys got in theirs but they were very pleased with this bar of soap. I made sure to read reviews to see if some people actually got larger bills before I purchased them again. We will probably only get dollar bills again but it's the suspense of not knowing that's fun. I think it would make a really great secret Santa gift as well." —Leah Lindblad
