    2. Preserve gel manicures with this portable nail lamp that keeps color lasting up to two weeks.

    Promising Review: "I love this lamp! I'm a professional manicurist who travels to some of my elderly clientele whom mostly get gel polish manicures. This lamp is small, but powerful! Definitely gets the job done, and is so easily portable that it doesn't take up any space." β€”Jessica Boswell

    3. Gift mom this hilarious mug for Mother's Dayβ€”it's sure to make her start her mornings with coffee and a laugh.

    Promising Review: "I got this for my mother and she loved it. It was especially funny because my sibling and I are always fighting, even though we're adults now, and she often has to play the referee. She loved it, and we now have solid evidence of who the favorite child is." β€”Adam

    Price: $10.99

    4. Keep food fresher longer thanks to this FoodSaver vacuum sealing system.

    Price: $56.49

    5. Get your ~wavy~ hair on with this hair crimper/wave iron.

    Promising Review: "I love this thing. It works like a crimping iron, but makes big waves like you curled it. I have a chin length bob, and I can do my whole head in under five minutes." β€”b1ue_bird

    Price: $19.90

    6. Shield yourself from both rain AND gusts with a windproof umbrella.

    Umbrella has automatic open and close, and can survive winds of up to 60 mph.

    Price: $21.95 (available in 27 colors).

    7. Or dream of sunny days and sandy beaches with these drink umbrellas that are your inexpensive ticket to feeling like you're in paradise.

    Promising Review: "I bought these for a luau-themed party that some friends and I were throwing, and they were great. I bought two boxes and they were exactly as pictured, and exactly what you'd expect. They worked great, and gave the party a fun ambiance." β€”Quintin

    Price: $3.97

    8. Start prepping the little ones for summer with these adorable unisex water shoes.

    Promising Review: "Received compliments on these shoes all day at the park. We went to a combined water and theme park, so they were perfect for going between the two. They're so cute and fit so well β€” my daughter loves the design and didn't complain about them at all." β€”Cait B.

    Price: $4.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and 10 colors).

    9. Change up how you work with a height-adjustable standing desk.

    Promising Review: "Tiny investment for a healthier back. Initially I thought I would use it 50% up/down. In reality I seem to stand most of the day and not even think about it." β€”Robert H

    Price: $395

    10. Clean your salad greens quick and easy with this salad spinner.

    Promising Review: "Who the heck needs a salad spinner? This thing seems like a waste of space when you can just individually dry off every leaf by hand, oh wait actually, never mind that's really annoying, and this is a great idea. I didn't know I needed this until I tried it. It's solidly built, of a generous size, and works well. The bowl works fine as a salad bowl, too." β€”EA

    Price: $29.99

    Price: $19.19

    13. Save time on busy days with a 12-pack of Soylent meal replacement drinks β€” they actually taste good.

    Promising Review: "My husband bought these to help replace a meal at work. He is often very busy, and doesn't have much time to grab lunch. These are really convenient and keep him full for hours. He loves the taste, and has described it as drinking chocolate milk." β€”Meaghan
