Promising review: "Great! I was buying the engraved tags from the pet store at about 11 bucks a pop, and they would be worn and unreadable in a few weeks. My pup has been wearing this tag for almost six months, and the engraving is still very clear. We give it a beating, too! We go hiking and snowshoeing, and my pup likes to play in mud and water. I bought two, expecting them to wear out as fast as the $11 ones. I'm sure that the first one will last a few more months, so I saved a whole lot more than I expected." —Lee

amazon.com

Promising review: "This fanny pack is an absolute necessity for college students. I ended up using it at least a few times a month for different events around campus where I didn't want to bring a purse. Over the summer, I used it almost every day when I would go on walks or runs. These fanny packs are so inexpensive that you can definitely purchase a couple without breaking the bank. It's very spacious (fits my phone, camera, money, keys, etc.), sometimes if I'm going for a long walk I'll even pack a banana in there as well and it fits fine. I always get a ton of compliments on my fanny packs and definitely think that everyone needs one in their life!" —Kim Adams

17. A book on quantum physics to start teaching your little ones science early on. Hey, it's good to read as an adult too if you wanna learn through easy explanations!

Promising review: “I just want to say that I bought this book for my 18-month-old for a laugh. His dad is an engineer and I am a physical chemist. And now they are the only thing he will read. Until buying this series, books were just toys he could be destructive with. My guess is the extremely simple illustrations in these books — white backgrounds with a single colored object — give him something easy to focus on. He went from throwing books around to pulling these off the shelf himself and pointing and ‘reading’ to himself calmly.” —Valerie NicholsPrice: $6.70

20. A tube of dog toothpaste to keep your pup's teeth as shiny as yours — their dental hygiene is important!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have a 5-year-old dog who has good teeth, but he has some tartar buildup from over the years. When I first got him, I brushed his teeth occasionally, but eventually stopped. After a couple years of no brushing, I decided to get back on the good dog dental hygiene train and ordered another tube of Petrodex Enzymatic Toothpaste. Now with just a short period of semi-regular usage, my dog's teeth look amazing! I got him when he was one and his teeth look better now at five then they did when I first got him. The toothpaste softened and loosened the tartar that was on his back teeth, and I was able to use a tooth scaler to scrape off the tarter. I wish I took before and after pictures because the results were fantastic." —JL

I bought them to use as cable ties for my desk, which they work perfectly for, but I've also since used them to wrap cords for stored appliances, wrap my headphones in my purse to keep them from getting tangled, I even use them to wrap the handles of my canvas grocery bags together to keep stuff from falling out, and to attach things to my purse straps." —Nicole N.Price: $6.99 (originally $8.99)

25. A tongue cleaning brush for reducing the yucky buildup of germs sitting around on your tongue, causing you bad breath — brushing your tongue is SO important, this can't be emphasized enough.

amazon.com

Promising review: "A lot of people don't realize that a good portion of bad breath comes from a dirty tongue. That white film on the tongue is a film of bacteria and needs to be broken up by being brushed, and these brushes are the best I've ever found. They're very wide so they cover a large area of the tongue and I can get a good brush in before the gag reflex makes me pause. A great follow-up to brushing your tongue is to then use a tongue scraper to really make your tongue pink and clean again." —snowhound

They're great in general and even better for the price. I'd buy them again and I'd recommend them as good utility scissors. Best of all, having two pairs makes it less likely that people grab my sewing scissors for paper, plastic, cardboard, and all sorts of other utility uses." —TabithasMomPrice: $7

28. A silicone lubricant for a smoother feel during sex, so you can enjoy intimacy with your partner more comfortably.

Promising review: "I love this product. I am VERY sensitive down there and cannot handle a lot of friction during sex.

Most stores charge about $35 for the 8.9 oz size." –dannibambiPrice: $7.25

amazon.com

Promising review: "Who would have thought this little ball massager would be the best stocking stuffer I've bought for my husband ever!? My husband has back and shoulder pains often and I could never quite get the pressure right with just my hands. This massager is fantastic for back, shoulder, and neck rubs. He likes more pressure and I like light massages, and this massager works for both. It allows for a smooth range of motion without feeling like you're being jabbed. It also works great with massage oils." —Tiff

Promising review: “This is just perfect for my 8-year-old son, who loves to draw comics! He has always just hand-drawn grid lines on blank paper, so I am so glad I found this for him! It has a lot of pages. So rather than being just one comic story, it would have to be a large collection of comic stories, to fill all the pages. It’s a great gift idea. I will get him more in the future!” —Tracking Packages
