    13. A curling bar that'll give your hair naturally wavy-like curls vs. the stiffer curls you get from other curling irons. I personally LOVE this thing. My hairdresser used it on me a few weeks ago, and the first thing I did when I got home was order one on Amazon. I am OBSESSED with it.

    Amazon, Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    My favorite thing about this curling bar is the timer feature. You simply wrap a piece of hair around the curler, press the circular timer button, and after 15 seconds, it'll vibrate to let you know time is up. So you can spend more time singing along to the new Jonas Brothers single and less time counting down... Not that I do that or anything. Also! Thing thing can go up to 450 degrees F, but it comes with a guide that instructs the ideal temperature range based on your hair volume. And it has a two-hour auto shut-off function!

    Get it from Amazon for $88+ (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "Delivered today, used tonight. Made the chocolate donuts from the recipe in the booklet, plus added a pinch of salt and a dash of cinnamon. Dusted with powdered sugar as they came out of the machine. My son gives it 'one MILLION thumbs up.'" —Foodie Mom

Removing the negative stigma associated with cannabis, Stephanie Hua and Coreen Carroll bring cannabis cooking to the next level and exactly where it should be — sophisticated, chic, and DELICIOUS. I cannot wait to gift this book to all the cannabis-lover chefs I know! The concentration on low-dose small bites is the perfect introduction for any novice, and keeps anyone like me, (high tolerance, big appetite), under control. I highly recommend this book and the recipes across the board!" —L Riggs

It connects via Bluetooth so you can connect it to your phone — the music and your singing comes out of the microphone's speaker. It has a volume control for your voice and for the music and also an echo feature. You can put an SD card into the bottom of it and record yourself, or connect it with an audio out to record on one of those karaoke apps on your phone. Between this and being able to find just about any song on karaoke via YouTube, you could easily have your own karaoke parties at home!" —Ferretocious
