    the white candle in front of a stack of multicolored candles

    Promising review: "This looks like a high-end candle and smells like one, too. The frosted glass and tasteful design gives it an elevated look. The scent is a bit masculine, but soft enough that it's not overpowering. Everyone in my home likes the way in smells. It burns nicely as well." —ShopGirl1724

    Price: $9.96 (available in nine colors and sizes XS–4X)

    3. A 60-inch Samsung 4K Smart TV that honestly might even show colors we can't even perceive, at this point. We gotta get a mantis shrimp on the case, to be sure — they have 16 color receptors in their eyes, while humans only have three! The more you know 💫

    the TV with a mountain range on the screen

    the flippable laptop with a party on the screen

    Promising review: "I was looking for something that had a touchscreen and was thin and lightweight and I'm so happy with this purchase. The quality is great. I have been using it to work from home and it has been able to keep up. The webcam quality is great too! And I love that it comes with a switch to hide the camera when it's not in use. I was able to download Chrome, Netflix, and other streaming apps. The touchscreen is very responsive. It also has a fingerprint scanner to unlock the screen and it's been convenient. Love this purchase! I am very happy." —Claudia 

    Price: $399 (available in three colors)

    6. A side storage desk because your books and tchotchkes need somewhere to go that's out of the way but still easily reachable.

    the wood and metal desk in an office setting

    Promising review: "This desk exceeded any minimal expectations. It's easy to put together with the straightforward directions; sturdy, and super functional. Love that you can alternate from a sitting to standing desk. The modern-industrial vibe makes it a win to go with any decor style you've got going in your house, too. Super happy with this purchase!" —jayb

    the lit up lamp in a living room

    Promising review: "Easy to assemble and looks fantastic. No one believes me when I tell them how much it cost. The base just makes it seem like it should be more. Love the ridges on the shade as well." —Glenda

    Price: $42.37 (with included CFL bulb)

    8. A pair of Beats noise-cancelling headphones for long commutes, hard workouts, or deep focus in crowded spaces. It's like carrying around your own little bubble of silence.

    the black over-ear headphones

    Promising review: "Love love love my headphones. If I don't want to hear the noise around me I can hit the button once to cancel out the sound. I love how they fit perfectly on my head and the sound is so amazing. Made me feel like I was at a concert. I also love the carrying case that came along with." —Betty

    Price: $149+ (available in six colors)

    the red and yellow game box

    Promising review: "We started playing this March 2020, and we've introduced at least 10 family members and friends to the game. All of them have purchased the game. We play it at least four times a week." —78rebel

    the round grey smart assistant

    Promising review: "I love it. I love the size of it and that it's portable. The speaker is small, maybe the size of a White Castle hamburger. The speakers have a clear sound. It works with all the smartitems in your home. I enjoy how I can tell it to turn on and off the TV. It can't change the channels though. It can make phone calls for you and put things on your shopping list in your phone. I can ask Google Nest 'what's the weather?' or how to spell a word, information about different subjects, do a math problem, etc. I have advised my friends to buy one." —RoPucci

    Price: $22+ (available in four colors)

    11. A Fossil watch that'll add a bit of sparkle and class to your wrist. Plus, you'll never have to worry about running late again.

    the rose gold watch with crystals around the face

    Promising review: "This watch is just as beautiful in store as it is on your wrist. I usually find that the jewels in stores look great inside, but lose their luster outside of the perfect lighting. This watch doesn't disappoint. I get compliments all the time from both men and women for how eye-catching it is. The rose-gold color is great because it sits on the perfect border of being neutral and bold at the same time. It has become my staple accessory. The watch is also super comfortable! It's light enough so you barely notice it, and heavy enough to feel like a quality item." —ireallyloveglitter

    Price: $69.50 (originally $139)

    12. A digital air fryer with a rotisserie spit so you can finally have a truly delicious bird at home — just think about all that crispy skin.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my air fryer! It makes the best chicken wings. So happy I finally got one!" —Chanell

    Price: $114.99

    13. A set of Muk Luks cabin socks that you might just wear for the entire winter straight. You won't even notice the cold when your tootsies are protected this well.

    two pairs of patterned purple socks

    Promising review: "I am so in love with these socks! I live in Wisconsin, so it's cold for many months of the year. I love snuggly soft socks, and these are by far my favorite now. They are very thick, which gives my feet a nice cushion. They're so soft and cozy and have a great fit. My feet get cold in the winter even with socks, but I know these will keep them warm. I think they're so pretty, too. I love the design on both pairs, and the colors are really pretty. They're good quality, and the fabric doesn't snag or pull when I wash and dry them. And it's awesome that they come in a two-pack." —Jalise

    Price: $9.97 (for a pack of two pairs, available in three colors and two sizes)

    14. A portable blender so lightweight you can take it with you anywhere and have fresh smoothies at just the touch of a button.

    two models holding the portable blenders with fruit

    Price: $39.88

    15. A mini sewing machine perfect for those unexpected sewing emergencies — never again will you have to throw out a dress with a tiny rip, thanks to this baby.

    the small white and pink sewing machine

    Promising review: "I love this sewing machine, it is so perfect and practical. I was looking for something small that doesn't occupy a lot of space and this machine is just what i need. I have not used one for about eight years and I think this machine is just the right type to begin practicing." —karen

    Price: $49.97 (originally $79)

    16. A Shark stick vacuum that'll obliterate all the dust and hair in your home, but won't obliterate your back while you carry it around.


    Promising review: "I have some previous injuries that make it difficult to use some types of vacuums and this corded stick vac enables me to be able to vacuum all the rooms in the house with ease. Powerful suction to give a clean floor. Great price for the product that you get in return. Easy to store and space saving, too." —MomofTwo54656

    Price: $129 (originally $191.25)

    17. A rose quartz facial roller so you can give your skin a little treat. Supposedly it removes "toxins" and improves circulation, but honestly I just think the cool stone feels really nice after a long day.

    the pink rose quartz face roller

    Promising review: "I think this is great for rolling in your serums, but I honestly got this not so much as a beauty product, but because I was hoping it could help relieve my sinus pressure and headaches. I can say that this really helps a lot. Especially if I put it in the freezer or fridge, when I get a migraine the rolling and coolness helps so much. I will also use it for beauty, but mostly I use it as a means to help control pain." —LilyRaiyne

    Price: $9.88

    18. A carbon steel chef's knife with a cool wood grain–inspired finish that'll make it the star of all your cooking videos — even if you just pretend you're making cooking videos while you're actually making pizza bagels.

    the marbled knife on a black background with prosciutto and melon

    Promising review: "This is a great knife! It's lightweight, but not too lightweight, it's very sturdy and sharp. It looks very nice and professional and it comes in a very nice-looking box. It's a gift for my sister-in-law, so I haven't actually used it, but I cook a lot and this knife seems a lot stronger and sturdier than my everyday knives." —Walmart customer

    Price: $29.99

    19. A velvet futon that looks way classier than the one you bought in college, but still has all the functionality.


    Promising review: "Love this sofa! Perfect for our cozy apartment. Highly recommend. Fits just enough for two people and can convert into a flat bed/futon." —CleaningJ

    Price: $309

    20. A unicorn Squishmallow with glasses, which makes her a classy and adult thing to purchase. Trust me, it's science.

    the pink unicorn plushie

    Promising review: "This is one great stuffy! My 10-year-old loves it so much. Great quality and very very soft! Affordable and it makes a great gift! It has a soft feel and my daughter actually uses this for her bedtime pillow at night. It seems to make her feel relaxed and she goes to sleep fairly quickly." —stedde10

    Price: $19.88

    21. A Nerf tennis ball blaster that's perfect for dogs who could fetch all day and owners whose arms get tired.


    Promising review: "My goodness, I purchased this because I work, and I am tired and my dog isn't. My dog loves this. It works great. We have been impressed with the performance of this Nerf blaster. I have had to ask my kids and family members to put it down and give the dog a break. When they do, the dog will paw at it as if to get it to work himself." —Shaggbark

    Price: $19.97

    22. A wood and metal platform bed for a ~classy, industrial~ vibe in your bedroom, that'll go with basically any color scheme.


    Promising review: "Gorgeous bed and very sturdy. Exactly as pictured. Zinus beds are so well made that my last three beds I've purchased are Zinus beds. Amazing quality and great price. So happy with my purchase." —hfontenot

    Price: $209+ (available in twin–queen)

    23. A gold icosahedron tabletop sculpture that makes an excellent statement piece (or a classy fidget toy) wherever you decide to put it.

    the gold object on a table

    Promising review: "For the price, you cannot beat this. I have been looking everywhere for a gold accent piece for my coffee table and every single one was insanely high in price. This item is also a lot larger than I anticipated, which was a nice surprise! It's made very well and the gold color is not a cheap-looking gold either. I really love how it looks! Definitely a great buy!" —Lynsey

    Price: $7.97

    24. A classic Huffy cruiser bike with ~Manic Pixie Dream Girl~ vibes. Cycle around on this to your cute bakery job while you listen to indie tunes and wear something outrageous but adorable.

    a model with the light blue bike

    Promising review: "We bought this for my 77-year-old mom (who is 5'2") for Mothers Day. She loves it! My husband put it together in about 20 minutes with no problems. The look of the bike is exactly as pictured. Even my dad thought it was a nice looking bike." —Rebecca 

    Price: $168 (available in four colors)

    25. A Baby Yoda Funko Pop because I mean — look at how cute he is! (Yes, I know his name is Grogu. No, I will not be calling him that.)

    the green baby yoda figurine

    Promising review: "This item was one of my grandson's favorite things in his stocking. After looking at the box he took it to his dad to show him what else was available featuring The Child." —gayla

    Price: $9.87

    26. A L'Oréal clay mask that'll help brighten and refresh your skin every time you treat yourself to a little spa night.

    the green and black mask packaging

    Promising review: "I love this mask so much! After the first use my skin was noticeably brighter and softer and my blackheads were gone and pores were significantly smaller. I was wary to use it frequently at first for fear of drying up my skin, as clay masks tend to do, but this is not one of those masks! Definitely worth the price, too — a little goes such a long way! This is my new go-to face mask and my skin has never been better and more evenly toned. It's also so quick! If my skin is feeling drab and in need of a quick fix, I run to this mask." —Walmart customer 

    Price: $8.95

    27. A Cricut Explore Air 2 cutting machine because I never realized the sheer number of things you could cut until I saw one of these babies in action. Decals, decorations, logos and more — the sky's the limit.

    the cutting machine on a table with a canvas tote

    Promising review: "Love love. Bought this for wedding decorations. But honestly that was my reasoning with the husband to be. I've been wanting one for years. I've made such beautiful keepsakes for our special day and for gifts. It's awesome." —Heather

    Price: $199+ (available in five colors)

    28. A beginner guitar set that 99% of teens should be thrilled to get as a gift. Sit back and relax, because you've already won the holidays this year.


    Promising review: "The best guitar for beginners, hands down, because it's cheap and comes with everything you need to start playing. I love my guitar and play it every day. It stays in tune even after playing it for hours. The bridge pins stay in and do not slide out when playing or pulling on the strings. Amazing sound for such a small price. It has black dots on the top side of the fret board as position markers, so you can see what fret you're on while playing. It also has pearl-colored inlays in the front of the fret board as position markers as well that look incredible on the dark rosewood. I just cannot even express how satisfied I am with this guitar!" —William

    Price: $94.99 (available in six colors)

    29. A roll of dry-erase film so you can make any surface a dry-erase board. Fridge? Dry-erase board. Door? Dry-erase board. Kitchen table? Sure, why not, it's a dry-erase board now.


    Promising review: "I needed something light enough to stay on the door to my garage, but large enough to accommodate schedules for my family. This was a perfect solution and very easy to apply." —Dmaxwell

    Price: $35

    30. A four-burner Blackstone griddle because who even needs a grill? This puppy cooks more evenly, is way easier to clean, and can cook things your grill could never dream of.

    a model cooking steaks on the griddle

    Promising review: "This makes cooking FUN! You can cook a whole package of bacon (or more) in five minutes! I can cook large amounts of food in 30 minutes (including cleanup), which would have taken me hours to do inside, with multiple pans. I love love love my Blackstone! Having the hinged lid is great, the drawers are a bonus." —Stephen

    Price: $297

    31. A facial-cleansing brush that's gentle enough to remove makeup, but tough enough to exfoliate and leave you glowing.

    A model holding the brush and heads

    Promising review: "I love it! I don't put soap on my face regularly. After working out a couple times a week, I use soap and this brush on my entire face. I'm 54 years old and I have had people comment on my complexion — how clear and pretty it is." —Jo

    Price: $12.94
