We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

Amazon has a list of products called “Movers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

This week people are buying stuff that transports them to the past: 12-packs of Surge, gold Casio watches, Audrey Hepburn dresses, Golden Girls books...I'm pretty sure that since tax season is upon us, people are trying to jog their memories of a simpler time, when 1099s and W-2s didn't plague us. Also, many are buying some actually useful kitchen items. Hold on to yo' wallets!

1. This multicolored LED lightbulb with a built-in Bluetooth speaker that you can control from your phone ($29.19).

Most promising review: "This light bulb is smart, so my iPhone can control just about everything it does. Yes, it can be your basic white light, but it can also dance in colors to music and sound; it can rotate through a spectrum of colors and I can control everything." —The Stuff of Success

2. This 12-pack of Surge that will bring you right back to the '90s when you probably had a terrible haircut ($14 on Prime Pantry).

Most promising reviews (plural, because they are all so good): "My brother has been in a coma for 12 years. I whispered into his ear that they were bringing Surge back and he shot straight up, did a backflip out of bed and roundhouse kicked a nurse. The miracle is real. SUUUUUUURRRRRGGGGGEEEEE!" —Michael Baxter

"I am converting my 401k into Surge. I am gonna ride out this market." —Joel R. Cotton

"I would drink Surge even if it made my penis fall off." —Alex

5. This beautiful glass teapot that's perfect for a daily cup or a fancy tea party ($15.97).

Most promising review: "This teapot is fantastic. It's made of glass, so it's breakable. I haven't broken mine yet, but I reserve the right to in the future, hopefully during the height of an argument. I think it'll shatter very well, but that's just speculation at this point." —Stephen

6. This insanely cute Doctor Who Adipose plush toy that you'll want to hug forever and always ($6.36).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "Bought as a gift for a hardcore Doctor Who fan. She loves it. It's a really nice size and very soft. She has it on her desk at work and gets tons of compliments...and quite a few questions! I mean, why would you have a fat monster on your desk? Very cool (and I don't even like Doctor Who)." —chandra orr

11. This head massager that will put you in a trance while you drool on the couch ($1.94).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "The law of diminishing returns does not apply to this product. It is every bit as euphoria-inducing as it is the first time you use it. Never before or since have I felt such serenity as I do when stroking my cranium with this majestic apparatus. A worldwide fundraising project to provide every man, woman and child one of these is the clear way to world peace." —Josh Gardner

12. This knife sharpener that can transform your dull old blades into super-sharp ninja knives ($10.99).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "This sharpener is pretty nice. It has two stages for metal knives: rough and fine. Having this made a big difference sharpening my knives. It really lets you shape the blade into a nice edge again." —Amazon Customer

14. This old-school gold Casio watch that's sort of like your nerdy childhood calculator watch but upgraded ($29).

amzn.to

Most promising review: "I like this watch! When I'm wearing it I can't keep the guys/girls/llamas off of me. Looks good with your shirt/pants on or off which is good because I hate wearing pants at the club. It even looks good with the lights on or off! Because it has a glowy face! With its crazy loud alarm, I will never be late for looking good ever again. It has a stop watch too, but you'll never use it 'cause you'll never stop ballin' once you put this on your wrist." —Tony

Most promising review: "As someone who cooks and bakes often and also has a five year old helping me often, these heat resistant silicone oven rack guards are awesome. They are easy to install and fit perfectly on any oven rack. The silicone, being heat resistant, does not melt or have any sort of smell to them once they get hot. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who bakes often or who has kids!" —Kathryn Cox

No further injuries have been noted since using these. Plenty of clips in the jar, and the big ones are also helpful when I need them." —A Rovetto
