    2. A deck of affirmation cards that are a wonderful combination of funny, inspiring, and aesthetically-pleasing to look at.

    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $13.03.

    3. A screaming goat book and figure for a hilarious little companion at the office, at-home, or wherever else you may decide to house this!

    Promising review: "This was hilarious! Both the figurine and the book. Bought for a co-worker, we all laughed and laughed each time we made it scream! We even played it over the loudspeaker for our warehouse workers to hear, and hearing it over that loudspeaker had us cracking up the rest of the day! Wouldn't have thought it be so popular but everyone loves it, especially the guy who it's for!" β€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    4. A Harry Potter wand remote to make channel surfing feel like a magic trick.

    Operates with any IR device, including televisions, Blu-ray players, and speakers. You can program up to nine gestures. Requires two AAA batteries, which aren't included.

    Promising review: "Received this as a Christmas gift, and OH MY DARK LORD, I'M HOOKED! After a trial-and-error period, and a well-spoken Alohomora spell, (and handing it over to my 20-year-old son), we figured out how to program the commands. Surprise! No one had Confunded us β€” it was a matter of reading ALL the directions versus trying to 'Ron Weasley' the situation with random whacking motions towards the TV. (Seriously β€” I heard Hermione's voice: 'Stop! Stop! Stop! You're going to take someone's eye out! Besides, you're saying it wrong. It's LeviOsa, not LevioSA.') Now, with a Flourish (and Blotts) that would make Ollivander proud, voilΓ  β€” my TV comes on, and with a Flitwick-approved 'Swish and Flick,' I've changed the channel. But wait, that's not all β€” with the twist of the Obliviate spell β€” volume up or down. Accio Happiness & Avada Kedavra old remote! I'm so happy I could... I could.. I could kiss Trevor!!! Well, a chocolate frog at least." β€”teemarie

    Get it from Amazon for $49.

    5. An aromatherapy diffuser that'll allow you to breathe in the sweet smell of your favorite essential oil scents while feeling nice and relaxed.

    It features an auto-off function β€” lasts for about 6–8 hours with a water tank capacity of 300 milliliters and then turns off automatically five seconds after the water runs out. It has four time setting modes β€” one hour, three hours, six hours, and continuous β€” and two misting options. It also has seven LED light colors, and two light options: dim and bright.

    Promising review: "Love this item. You can hear a small sound of water bubbling, but it's so faint that it's kind of relaxing. I have it in my bedroom and noticed, (and hopefully it continues), that I have a better night of sleep. I find this unit well worth the money." β€”The Beas

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in three colors).

    6. And while you're at it, you should add a variety pack of essential oils to your cart. You can use one at a time or make things interesting and create your own soothing combination.,

    Promising review: "This is a great starter pack. The fragrance is not overpowering with a few drops and lasts. I didn't realize how much our sense of smell can affect our moods until using these oils. I sleep better with the lavender, and the citrus puts me in an energetic mood. The price is great and you get a variety of scents. The tops go on securely, so I can use some and then put them back in the box with no leaking. The lavender is very relaxing. I love how the box tells you what each oil does. I highly recommend these oils. If I could give 10 stars I would." β€”Sav

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $18.98.

    7. Novelty bandages, because even though you may be an adult, you're an adult who still suffers from occasional boo-boos, and there is nothing that will help make you feel better than patching it up with a taco or a unicorn.,

    Promising review: "Although they state these are novelty bandages, I used one and it actually works well. I put it on the back of my hand where I had nicked it with a nail and it stayed on all day, even after multiple hand-washings. The absorbent pad immediately stopped the bleeding and did not soak through the bandage. Plus, my grandkids love them." β€”RajnKjn

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $5.98 (available in 13 varieties).

    8. A pair of customizable dog socks so you can keep your feetsies nice and warm while repping your favorite little fluff.


    Promising review: "Cannot stress enough how amazing these came out!!! I gave them as a Secret Santa gift to my two friends and they said they're the best gift they’ve ever received. I was a little concerned about the quality of the picture, since it was an iPhone-quality photo off of Facebook, but they came out 10 times better than I had even hoped. 5 stars for sure!!!!" β€”Amandax054

    Get them from Amazon for $24 (available in 10 colors, and sizes S and L).

    9. A long-distance friendship lamp to get yourself and a loved one. When the miles separating you feel too far, one of you can turn your light on and let the glow from the other lamp emit a glow. Now it's like you guys are right next to each other!


    Promising review: "I received a pair of friendship lamps from a dear friend and at first didn't know what I was supposed to do with them. Then my friend said I should send one to my daughter, and the light literally went on. My daughter and I both love communicating that we are thinking of the other by touching the lamp, and especially love it when we are both changing the colors at the same time. It is the next best thing to holding her hand." β€”Mama

    Get it from UncommonGoods: one lamp for $85 or two lamps for $170.

    10. A hilarious spoon to help make you feel like a total rebel with each bite you take of your favorite cereal. RIP cereal, you won't be missed, because the truth is, I'm much happier when you're in my digestive system.

    Promising review: "Bought this as a present for my teenage daughter as she is a big cereal eater in our house. Was a cute little gift and she loved it. Have been using it and washing it for five months now, and it still looks good as new." β€”Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    11. Adorable cable bites that'll look both hilarious and adorable on your phone charger. Since this pack comes with 12 of them, it's perfect for sharing with friends and family and preventing future wire mix-ups.


    Promising review: "My son had to have these and I have to admit β€” they are adorable. So adorable, I took a few for myself. Not sure they do much beyond look cute, but that is enough for me!" β€”Christine Bradley

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $10.98.

    12. A pair of microfiber slippers for something comfy to wear on your feet and something cute to stare down at ALL WHILE mopping your floors just by wearing these as you walk on them. Now if I could only figure out how to wear a vacuum.

    Promising review: "I love having clean floors but sometimes I'm lazy and I live near the beach, so sand can be a hassle on the hardwood floors in my apartment. I love these so much and have worn them every day since I got them. They are super comfy and help clean!" ⁠—Laura J

    Get them from Amazon for $10.59+ (available in various styles, and four sizes).

    13. A mug with a true sense of humor β€” the only reason this little guy, whose name is Fred, BTW, isn't "wearing pants," is because he's infusing your tea, so cut him some slack.

    Promising review: "So cute and works well. The 'pants' of the infuser are made of soft silicone and the whole infuser fits perfectly on the edge of the mug." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.05.

    14. A heart-shaped waffle maker that may just make you realize that you do actually "love" mornings. Or maybe you just like eating waffles in the shape of a heart. Either way, it works!


    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE my new waffle maker. I'll be honest β€” it is much smaller than I expected. You can carry it in one hand with ease. (It's a about the size of one hand.) But I really do love it. They turn out pretty fluffy so even though they're small, they have substance to them. Plus, how can you beat a heart waffle???" β€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    15. A sloth planner and notepad that's super adorable, and unlike the nature of these slow-moving cute creatures, will help make it easier to stay on track and get through your to-do list quicker.

    BuzzFeed / Emma McAnaw

    Promising review: "I got this notepad as a gift for my sloth-crazed friend. Usually anything sloth-themed is a hit with her, but this note sheet was an absolute win. She loved it. First of all, the sheets are cute as heck. There is a place to rate your sloth mood, every header is a pun, and the design is tasteful. Second, it is organized in a way that makes sense. It separates errands from short tasks and more. Third, the paper is quality. If you are on the fence, this product is perfect." β€”Allie Schultz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    16. A Golden Snitch-shaped fidget spinner so you can keep your busy hands occupied while showing off your Quidditch skills.


    Promising review: "I impulsively bought this spinner since my wife and I are both big Harry Potter fans. I tend to fidget with other items at my desk at work, so I thought this would be a nice purchase. It is a great spinner! I love how the multiple colors show up especially when you spin it under a direct light source. Sometimes I'll hold the wing and spin the sphere. It's an awesome spinner and has been a talking point with my coworkers since i purchased it. Would highly recommend it to anyone!" β€”JDZ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A super cute computer monitor memo board perfect for attaching sticky note reminders of things on your to-do list, important phone numbers to keep on-hand, and more. You might be having a long day at work, but don't worry, this little guy is here to keep you company and help out.


    Promising review: "I get so many compliments on this little guy. He has been sticking to the side of my monitor for months and is a perfect place to add all my reminder sticky notes. It has not fallen off at all β€” very sturdy." β€”CMD

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles).

    18. Oven mitts that'll help making cooking a *bear-y* fun experience. Plus, it's the perfect excuse for making aaall the bear-related puns, as I just demonstrated.,

    Promising review: "My dad LOVES it! He is like a little kid inside when he wears them and always says he is cooking with his 'bear hands' (bare hands). Very good quality." β€”Ashleigh

    Get them from Amazon for $20.

    19. And if those aren't quite your thing, maybe these Mickey Mouse mitts will be. Your kitchen? Suddenly just became the happiest, most magical place on Earth.

    Promising review: "These are great and super thick. I almost don’t want to use them because I love how cute they are. This is the best gift for anyone who is Disney obsessed." β€”Allison Perez

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99.

    20. An adorable cat spoon that'll happily just chill and hang off your mug, so you always have a little buddy to hang with while enjoying your fave hot beverage.


    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." β€”Brianna S.

    Get it from Amazon for $1.59.

    21. A magic lamp oil-pourer and stopper that may not cause a genie to pop out and grant you three wishes when you rub it, but if you pop it into your bottle of cooking oil, it will make pouring it out feel more fun.


    Promising review: "This is functional and adorable! It does a great job at preventing oil from leaking down the side of my olive oil bottle, and it hasn't popped off while pouring." β€”Smith S.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    22. A cat butt coloring book that's equal parts hilarious and precious. I guess you can say it's the purr-fect coloring book.

    Promising review: "So, obviously this coloring book is hilarious! But, the pictures are actually really nice quality and fun to color! My sister loves cats, so I bought this for her for Christmas, and I know she will love it. Lots of pages and really good quality!" β€”Brandi Norum

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    23. Mike's Hot Honey that may just become your new go-to condiment. It's delicious on spicy foods, savory foods, sweet foods, heck, you may even be tempted to just hold the bottle over your mouth and just eat it directly from the bottle. You do you.


    Check out our write-up of the delicious Mike's Hot Honey!

    Promising review: "I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed-up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree β€” this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!" β€”Jeff R. Clow

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    24. An adorable enamel pin for attaching to a denim jacket, a tote bag, or anything else you wear that you'd want to sport this little cutie around and show it off.


    Promising review: "I received my pin quickly. It is SO cute, I am very excited to give this to my nephew. I almost want to keep the pin for myself!" β€”samesame

    Get it from Love Michi BB on Etsy for $9.99 (available in two styles).

    25. A cold brew coffee maker to help you whip up a delicious iced coffee treat β€” pro tip: do it the night before so it has time to chill while you're asleep, and all you have to do in the morning is pour and go.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    It yields about four servings of delicious coffee, features an airtight, leak-proof lid that helps to lock in freshness and flavor, a non-slip silicone handle, and fits in most refrigerator doors. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. Need more convincing on this amazing coffeemaker? Check out our review of the fabulous Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker.

    Promising review: "Delicious iced coffee! Don’t be fooled by getting an iced coffee at Starbucks and paying almost four bucks. For less than a dollar, you can brew your own cold brew coffee at home. The best part is that cold brew has 60 percent less acid then regular coffee does. So go ahead, acid reflux sufferers, have that second cup! I used some gourmet beans from a local coffee roaster for $15 and ground them myself. The coffee was far better than Starbucks could ever dream of making. Best of all I get three days' worth of coffee for around $2 worth of beans. Pretty amazing." β€”Robert Klaproth

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    26. Cat gel pens for the most purr-fect way to write down notes, letters, and even make shopping lists. They're so cute, you're gonna wonder how you ever wrote with regular pens leading up to this moment.


    Promising review: "These pens are super cute and I was very impressed with how well the ink flows out of them. I took them to work and have gotten so many compliments on them. Everybody knows which pens are mine since I am the resident cat lady and lover of all cute things in the office. I always smile when I see their little faces looking out at me from their pen holder. It's like they're saying 'come play with us and write wonderful messages.' I couldn't be happier with these little guys." β€”Goldie

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $6.99.

    27. Animal bag clips to make saying au revoir until tomorrow to the Doritos bag a heck of a lot cuter!


    Promising review: "When you are in the market for chip clips why not buy adorable ones? These were a very reasonable price and I was squealing with delight when I opened them (because they are so cute). They're sort of small, but for things like Milano cookies and plastic bags, they seem to work well." β€”Danielle

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $3.99.
