    9. A Homesick candle that smells like, well, home — to remind you of all your favorite scents, even if you're thousands of miles away.


    Promising review: "I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell, but I figured even if he wasn't a fan it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home. I don't know how they did it, but Homesick Candles managed to replicate the smell of home so well in this candle that it took my boyfriend back home immediately. Definitely worth my money :)" —Bailey K.

    Get both from Amazon, the 13.75-ounce candle for $28 (available in 51 styles) and the mini candle for $16.95 (available in nine styles).

    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 $1.59.

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $8.99.

    12. A mystery box of cat hats, because how can you *not* be happy when your furry son is wearing a BANANA on his head.,,

    Promising review: "Cat hats are truly a godsend. There is nothing more adorable or silly than accessorizing your little furry friend with such captivating head pieces. Though I was hoping for the crab, the axolotl was probably the best one. I truly loved this product and had a blast with it. Unfortunately, Kitty probably didn't share my enthusiasm or joy upon wearing the hood, though she was a good sport." —Piiku

    Get the aquatic box for $6.75 or the fruit box for $7.22 on Amazon.

    13. A moon phase garland if your love for chic decor can't be ~eclipsed~.

    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 (above) the moons are pretty thick/heavy. They gave me gold matching screws to hang it, but I just used a thumb tack instead. Love this!" —Holly Grote

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

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

    The lipsticks with different flowers inside.

    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 $14.88 (available in two styles).

    15. A cat ear hair band to keep your hair out of your face *and* turn you into a real-life Instagram filter.,

    Promising review: "This headband is super cute and super comfortable. It fits nice and doesn't slip off. I sleep with it on to keep my bangs from sticking to my night cream. This is the first headband that really holds my bangs up and doesn't slip off my head. I'm very happy with this purchase." —Mektalbott

    Get it from Amazon for $4.70.

    16. A sweet lil' exfoliating face brush so you can give your pores a deep clean and scrub away dead skin cells without irritating your face.

    Promising review: "Adding this to an ever-growing list of things I never knew I needed. My skin is very sensitive, so most exfoliating is too rough for me; this little guy is perfect! Worked up a really nice lather, and left my skin soft and smooth without turning it bright red. The massage side is really nice, too. And it’s so cute!" —Michelle D

    Get it from Amazon for $5.

    17. A ~bear-y~ cute eye stick that'll reduce under-eye puffiness and is so adorable that you'll actually remember to use it.,

    Promising review: "I have always had serious dark circles and bags under my eyes and this has really changed this for me. The results are incredible. The puffiness is gone. The dark circles are hardly noticeable. My sensitive skin has not broken out. I never write reviews because everything is under my husband's name, but this was so good that I had to write a review. This actually works." —Ben

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. A stupidly soft lace padded bralette, because it's time to finally break up with your uncomfortable underwire bras.


    Promising review: "The lace on this bra is beautiful and the cut is flattering. The longline design and soft fabric makes it so comfortable. I loved the amount of support — more than an unlined bralette and less than a typical bra. Will be wearing often!" —MOUNTAINS5

    Get it from Aerie for $20.97 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and seven colors).

    19. A super freaking cute Baby Yoda puzzle if you're obsessed with The Mandalorian or just the adorable green gremlin on the screen.

    FYI, some reviewers say they received the puzzle with missing pieces, but the manufacturer has missing piece support.

    Promising review: "Great puzzle. My kids and I put it together in a few hours and enjoyed it. Fun to have some Baby Yoda around the house!" —Mommap

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    20. A midi wrap dress for anyone who's ready to give boring dresses the cold shoulder.


    Get it from Boohoo for $26 (originally $52; available in sizes 4–20 and 12 colors).

    21. A pair of chic paper bag pants to make getting dressed in the morning a lot more fun. *Looks down at boring khakis and immediately hits "add to cart."*,

    Promising review: "I pretty much live in jeans (even to work), so I bought these on a whim to change up my wardrobe a bit. I ended up loving them! They're really comfy and stretchy, the right length, and super cute with a skinny top or bodysuit." —Lauren H.

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXXL and 47 colors).

    22. A black bath bomb so all you goths can escape other humans and turn your bathroom into a relaxing retreat. (And don't worry, reviewers say it won't stain your tub!)

    Promising review: "I never write Amazon reviews, and I rarely trust them anymore. This product was amazing, everything I wanted and more. Santa brought it for my children and it scared one of them, yet excited her minutes later. It turned the water as dark as my mother’s soul, and never disappointed! It made my room smell great for a full month before use. Solid five out of five." —A lane

    Get it from Amazon for $10.39.

    23. An un-bee-lievably adorable beeswax candle with an impressive 70-hour burn time that I 100% guarantee no one else will own.


    Promising review: "This candle is nice and looks just like the pics. The bees can be a little difficult to get stuck on with the wings too, but not a game changer. It gets a lot of attention and conversation as it is unique. I almost hate to burn it, but have done it some. Just have to remember to blow it out before it gets too close to the clamp. If not, the wax gets melted in the clamp itself some and you end up having to dig it out of the clamp. From what I know now, I will definitely be buying a replacement spiral when this one is used up." —Tideman

    Get it from Amazon for $35.

    24. A pound of cereal marshmallows, because the best part of Lucky Charms are the charms (fight me).

    Promising review: "Buying these charms was one of the best decisions of my life. The bag is twice the size of my head. The marshmallows are aesthetically pleasing and delicious. It's everything I ever wanted in a snack." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    25. A Keanu Reeves sequin pillow for anyone who would use the word "breathtaking" to describe this beautiful man.


    Promising review: "I bought it as a gift and they LOVED it. I even started to love it. My mother got jealous and now wants one. Looks like I know what I'm buying myself and my mother for Christmas." —JULIET R

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

    26. A mood-boosting sloth to-do list to make you smile despite having to finish approximately 50 million things today.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I got this note pad as a gift for my sloth-crazed friend. Usually anything sloth-themed is a hit with her, but this note sheet was an absolute win. She loved it. First of all, the sheets are cute as heck. There is a place to rate your sloth mood, every header is a pun, and the design is tasteful. Second, it is organized in a way that makes sense. It separates errands from short tasks and more. Third, the paper is quality. If you are on the fence, this product is perfect." —Allie Schultz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    Read my colleague's review of this sloth to-do list (#4).

    27. A heart-shaped mini waffle maker so waking up early is a little more bearable for anyone who's most definitely *not* a morning person.


    Promising review: "I got this item specifically to surprise my boyfriend with a special breakfast. It was the first time I cooked at his place and this fun little gadget really made his morning! He was thrilled and even wanted to take photos before digging in to eat! All I have to say is paying the extra price for this waffle maker just to see that kind of joy on his face made it all worthwhile. 😍 Thank you Amazon!" —BK

    Get it from Amazon for $20.94.
