    1. A removable cat toilet seat sticker to add some cute humor into their bathroom experience.


    Promising review: "Do you live with someone who loves cats? Or possibly want to annoy someone who doesn't? This sticker fits the bill. Arrived within a week and totally creeps out my husband. No more hour plus bathroom visits whenever there is something to do. Score!" โ€”Jen S.

    Promising review: "This was hilarious! Both the figurine and the book. Bought for a co-worker, we all laughed and laughed each time we made it scream! We even played it over the loudspeaker for our warehouse workers to hear, and hearing it over that loudspeaker had us cracking up the rest of the day! Wouldn't have thought it be so popular but everyone loves it, especially the guy who it's for!" โ€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    The candles are long-lasting, made with natural soy wax, and come in reusable jars.

    Promising review: "Love these candles. The seller, Major Goods, has been great and the candles come very well-packaged and protected. These are very clean burning. NO issues with black soot on walls or shelf. Just keep wick trimmed often. Smells are pleasant and not overwhelming. Good bye Yankee! These are much better for air quality than petroleum-based candles." โ€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in 32 labels and scents).

    10. A cute ceramic travel mug with one of the best puns of all time IMO. If you don't get it, this mug's not for you.

It was a hit with 20+ people playing yard games for 6 hours! Battery life is impressive. Fell in a pool, still works. Got dragged around the yard, sill works. Cat knocked it off the table and ran around with it, still works. Little booklet that came with it was cool too. I annoyed everybody with random facts about the history of the little bugger." โ€”Jordan

    Promising review: "I have a teen who HATES reading. But seemed to really LOVE this book. Probably due to a combination of the absurdity (and hilarity) and the comics interspersed. This book will appeal to teens all the way to adult, anyone who likes to think 'what if' about crazy scenarios, then wants to know the science to back it up (all while being entertained in a funny/absurd way). There's a lot of math and physics in here but it's done in such a way you don't need to be a scholar to get it. Very well done and with a wide appeal. Very funny! Great for people who don't traditionally like reading!" โ€”Kit
