    1. A tiny pan! It's so tiny! Make an egg in it! Or a single-serve skillet cookie!

    Promising review: “These are SO adorable. I use them for single sunny side up eggs, perfectly round for bagels or English muffins and also to bake mini pizookies (cookies topped with ice cream). My kids love the presentation for that.” —Momof3

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    2. A Prison Mike pin so you can remind everyone you meet that the worst part about prison is the Dementors.

    Promising review: “Every time I look at this pin I yell 'I'M PRISON MIKE.' I giggle every time I see it, it’s really good!” —Concanyon

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    3. A flamingo mug (or a fla-mug-o, if you will) to help you start your mornings off on the right foot.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    4. A set of hair clips in whimsical shapes that'll still keep even the thickest of hair out of your face.


    Promising review: “I assumed these would be like every other clip i’ve tried and be too cheap and flimsy. They are awesome clips! I have very thick hair, and I’ve even been able to use this clips for half-updos. There is plenty of space between the clip and fastener for hair. They arrived with both gold and silver of each shape.” —Colin

    Get a set of eight clips from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two sets).

    5. A cactus cookie cutter that'll only help you out with making sweet treats, no spikes in sight.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    6. A set of Harry Potter makeup brushes to cast beautificus totalus on all your eye looks.

    Promising review: “My husband got these for me for Christmas and I LOVE them! The handles are really heavy duty and they're comfortable to hold. The brush heads are absolutely incredible! They're probably my favorite brushes I've ever used, they blend like a dream and pick up color sooo well! I was super amazed with how awesome they are!” —Darcie Holgate

    Get a set of five brushes from Amazon for $9.55.

    7. A set of puppy pencils that'll make even your most boring lists and memos pretty doggone fun.


    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $7.99.

    8. A pair of earmuff headphones because you shouldn't have to choose between having warm ears and your ~tunezzz.~


    Promising review: “These are awesome! They fit my head just right. They are tight against my ears, but I personally like that because I know they are secure. The material on the inside is soft and warm. The outside design is knitted, similar to a sweater. The headband part is fuzzy, similar to velvet. I was impressed with the sound quality. I thought having the inside so fluffy would mute or dull the sound, but it absolutely does not. It was clear. I also like that there is a volume control on the wire, complete with mic, which I was not expecting.” —Lauren

    Get a pair from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    9. A loaf plushie to remind you to get that bread 🍞 — and this guy won't ever go stale.


    Promising review: “This actually came in a day for me, which was lovely. The plushie itself is big, squishy, and adorable. I thought buying a bread plushie would be funny, since I have celiac's disease and cannot eat gluten. It was so cute, and well worth the price! 100% recommend.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50.

    10. An elephant watering can that'll keep your tomatoes and herbs hydrated with his helpful trunk. And look at his googly eyes!

    Promising review: “Oh my gosh, so cute! I came on Amazon to find a huge watering can for use in my greenhouse, but came across this, and couldn't deny this little guy. I mostly purchased it because I knew our 2-year-old would love to help me water the plants. She was eating lunch when this arrived, and almost flew out of her chair when I unboxed it. I love that I can fill it almost to the top and then set it down, and theres no overflow! I've been using it for my windowsill succulents (aloes, jade plants, and cactus) and it's so much easier than the spouted bowl I was using! Our daughter loves pretending with it too. It dries pretty quickly in the drainboard.” —SweetAndSalty

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. A coloring book with fashions of the Jazz Age so you can learn (or pretend to learn) about some history while you shade and detail.


    Because these illustrations are so detailed, a lot of commenters recommend a set of fine point pens ($13 on Amazon) to color with.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    12. A cat butt purse. I'm not sure what more to say here. It's a cat butt purse and you need one.

    Promising review: “So fuzzy and charming! The anus is well-delineated with embroidery, while the testicles are 3-dimensional. Nice size for an evening bag. When I sit it next to me on the bus, everyone admires it and moves on to the next seat. I had hoped the testicles would be zippered, so I could keep my pills in there; they are the perfect size. But they are not. That's my only complaint. Purse holds an iPhone 7 and a small wallet with no problem.” —Kimberly Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in three colors).

    13. A cable chomp cord protector that you definitely need if you've ever thought, "Man, I wish phone charms were still a thing." Plus, it'll help prevent frayed cords!


    These lil' dudes are awesome (I have the seal, and my partner has the axolotl). They protect your phone cord from bending and fraying, so for once you won't have to replace it like every three months. Plus they're just super adorable! Look at their faaaaaaaaaaces, and try to tell me you don't want one.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.99+ (available in 21 animals).

    14. A set of record coasters to keep your surfaces pristine and show off your love of vintage tunes at the same time.,

    Promising review: “I love these! My son collects records so I knew this would be a great little gift after he got his wisdom teeth removed. He keeps them in his room to use and for his guests, he said his friends think they're the coolest — a conversation item for sure!” —Trish Kabob!

    Get the set of six coasters from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. A cow vacuum that'll re-moo-ve all the annoying little crumbs from any space.


    Promising review: “I bought this vacuum for my kids to suck up all of their pencil erasings from the table. The kids enjoy using this little vacuum. It is very tiny, about 6 inches long, so it fits nicely on the table and doesn't take up space. The suction is great for such a tiny, battery operated vacuum and it is fairly quiet. It also does a great job sucking up crumbs and other tiny debris. The head pops off for easy emptying. For the price, it is a great little sucker. It is great to have on a desktop and looks adorable. I may get another for each of them to keep on their desks in their bedrooms.” —JoJo

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two styles).

    16. A tissue box cover, because nothing can make the sniffles better, but this lil' house will at least brighten up your bedside table in the meantime.

    Some reviewers report that this cover can lift up when you pull out a tissue — if you'd find this bothersome, and don't want to hold it still with your other hand, they recommend adding a few adhesive weights ($4 on Amazon) to keep it steady.

    Get the cover from Amazon for $5.

    17. A sponge bed that'll give your scrubbin' buddy a little rest in between dishwashing sessions.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.90.

    18. A kitty night-light that'll provide a nice warm glow to any room, in any color of the rainbow. Plus, they're soft enough to deal with being knocked around.


    Promising review: “LOVE these light up kitties!! We have four of these, one for each of our littles. LOVE that they are chargeable, it makes them soooo much more useful. They are nice and bright, but not too bright. The color changes at a nice speed and it's nice that a simple tap on the kitty will make it stay on the chosen color. My kids love to shut all the curtains, or make forts and set these lights up inside. The simple fact that they are still working perfectly, after two months with my small children is a miracle! I very highly recommend these! They are very soft/collapsible. The only hard part is the round disc at the bottom, which is approximately one inch thick. These get thrown around, stepped on and slept with in our house and I'm amazed at their durability!” —Bethany D. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three face styles).

    19. A floral planner because, let's be real, you've probably already lost that one you bought when the year started.

    Promising review: “I'm a lover of all things organizational and this planner is perfect for me. It has both monthly and weekly pages. Every day has lines to write in the schedule for the day, and all days except Saturday/Sunday also include lines with circles to check off tasks. The front of my planner is floral and gorgeous and the back is dark blue. I love it so much, it is perfect and SO affordable. I love how thin it is compared to other planners — I can actually carry this one around with me day to day. The pages are thick enough that gel pens don't bleed through. There is no color or distracting patterns on the inside, making colorful pens look extra nice. Treat yoself!” —Merry

    Get it from Amazon for $7.05.

    20. A dachshund ice cube tray so you can cool your drink down with some ~hot dogs.~

    Promising review: “These are the CUTEST ice cubes I’ve ever seen!!! I love them so much. Being a silicone tray, it’s hard for me to carry it to the freezer without spilling a little, but they’re still amazing and it doesn’t really change much for me. I get compliments on them all the time and people ask where I got the tray. They’re super easy to get out of the tray too. Definitely worth the cost.” —April Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    21. A birdhouse key holder that can hang out by your door and finally stop you from losing your keys every morning. Plus, the bird is a whistle, which will delight any dogs and/or children in your immediate vicinity.,

    Promising review: “This is the most practical product I've ever purchased. Little houses securely screwed next to the doors I use most, one little house holds the keys to the car that lives outside and one holds the keys to the car that lives in the garage. I go out and take keys. I come in and put keys in the house. Other times the whistle (there for safety) is used to call my dogs in from play or just generate comments about why there is a whistle living with my keys. This little house works so great I've purchased several for friends and they love it, too! If you are prone to losing your keys in the house, this is a nice solution.” —TouchingPaws

    Get it from Amazon for $5.29+ (available in three colors).

    22. A pack of art socks to bring a little culture to your ankles. They could really use it.


    Promising review: “Love, love. These are so quirky and such good colors, I may wear them with sandals and shorts — no, I'm not that far gone, but they look so good with pants that I pull the leg up to show the art work to other sock-obsessed friends.” —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 10 styles).

    23. A unicorn cake squishy that's so soft and so sweetly scented, it'll send all your worries out the window.


    Promising review: “My daughter is the squishy queen and this one has topped all others she has. It is super soft and smells good. She's been playing with it all weekend and so far no cracking or peeling.” —JBABY

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. A circle scarf to keep your neck cozy while you wait for the weather to finally warm up (please no more polar vortexes!!),

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 39 colors).

    25. A pair of puffer fish dryer balls that'll brighten up laundry day and hopefully stop you from getting so many static shocks throughout the day.


    Promising review: “While they may be a bit strange looking, these are a very smart purchase. Not only are they basically eternally useful, they're freaking adorable. I no longer have to buy dryer sheets, as these little fish are fantastic at removing static and lint from my clothes. Even after quite a bit of use, they are showing no wear and tear, nor are they becoming any less effective. My only extremely minor complaint is the initial noise level they generate when you start the dryer. And that's only because I'm too lazy to bury them in my clothes to avert such a situation, which you may be willing to do. Overall, fantastic purchase and if ever they needed to be replaced, I would certainly buy them again. Especially if they came in other colors because that's just even more fun.” —BecauseITry

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $8.

    26. A shimmery nail polish so you can carry a tiny, rose gold disco ball everywhere you go.

    Promising review: “Literally no words for how gorgeous this is. I want to dip my whole body in it.” —AmyJeanne

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    27. A corgi planter to keep all of your succulents and tiny plants safe. Don't worry, he's all bark and no bite.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    28. And a dinosaur necklace that'll make you feel like the tricera-tops whenever you wear it.

    Promising review: “This is the most fab necklace. Everyone from the postman to the guy at the frame shop to a lady walking past me in the street complimented me on the necklace (mine is gold). It's well-made, a bit heavy and looks far better than the modest price would suggest. It's unusual, but not crazy lady unusual. Hip but not in your face hip. Looks fantastic on a casual black dress. I bought one for myself after seeing my daughter wear hers. Then I bought one for my mother and she loves it. Great fun to wear!” —Anon

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in four colors).

    You to all these things (and also me to you ❤️)
