    A reviewer photo of the Instant Pot next to a plate of butter chicken that they made using the Instant Pot

    Combines six kitchen appliances in one — pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté, steamer, and warmer. It can prepare food up to 70% faster. It can keep food warm automatically for up to 10 hours, and there are three temperatures for sauté and slow-cook. The inner cooking pot, lid, and steam-rack are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "This is probably the only kitchen appliance I've ever bought that has earned permanent status on my kitchen counter. I use it at least three times a week. It's particularly perfect for vegans and WFPB-eaters. I can cook beans and grains from scratch in no time! Such a wonderful investment. I liked it so much that I got one for each of my sisters for the holidays. Best. Thing. Ever." —cynthia w. rogers

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in two sizes).

    And while you're at it, you're gonna want this cookbook filled with 100+ Instant Pot recipes. Get it from Amazon for $7.79.

    2. A heated sherpa blanket that'll keep you super warm and cozy even on the coldest, snowiest days. Summer? We don't need her again, just leave me be cuddling with my favorite blanket.,

    Features three heat settings, and one side plush, the other side sherpa. It also has an auto-shut off function, just in case it slips your mind to turn this off.

    Promising review: "Really cozy/soft and heats up quickly. I have had this blanket for about one month now and use it on a regular basis as a throw on our couch, so I don't have to turn up our heat. This was purchased for my use, but my cats have claimed partial ownership now! I was initially worried about it possibly being turned on by accident, but as long as you unplug the cord/remote part either from the wall or from the blanket attachment when not in use, it is fine. The auto shut-off feature kicks in after a few hours, (I didn't time it specifically), and is a nice feature, but I always unplug the blanket after use. You can use both sides — the sherpa side is slightly more warming than the 'mink' side." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $53.90+ (available in four colors).

    3. A personalized name necklace with a birthstone pendant for a perfect piece of everyday jewelry. Ask for one, and while you're at it, order a few for your loved ones too!,

    Just customize with your birthstone and name/word before checkout!

    Promising review: "I love this necklace. It is beautifully crafted and durable. I was worried that the name plate was going to be thin and get bent or broken easily, but it's evenly thick and doesn't easily bend." —Dlysh39

    Get it from Amazon for $44.95+ (available in two finishes, and three chain lengths).

    You can make up to two sandwiches at once with this! The meat must be pre-cooked, and sandwiches only take about five minutes to make. All removable parts are dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I am extremely impressed with this breakfast sandwich maker. I purchased it for my 11-year-old nephew for Christmas, and it was a huge success. I was initially worried that the egg would not be completely cooked but it was absolutely perfect. We made Canadian bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches with English muffins. I also really like how the English muffins were toasted." —Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    5. Glossier Balm Dotcom — a lip balm with a cult-following for making your lips feel nourished and smooth. Reviewers especially love this product for the fact that it stays on for hours, even when you're eating/drinking.

    This is hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, dermatologist-tested, and boasts long-lasting moisture!

    Promising review: "As a professional lip balm collector, I would like to go out on a limb and say that this is probably the best balm I have used. It stays forever, doesn't wipe off with food, or drinks, or life, and is super nourishing. It's also really good value for the money and lasts forever, (mine has been with me since July 2018, and I'm writing this review in September 2019)." —Aayushi S.

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in night flavors).

    Promising review: "I am truly amazed by the quality of these lenses. I have bought two before these, but honestly these are the best ones so far! The telephoto lens is a bit heavy, but it works really well. They all do. It arrived at a perfect time. It all came very well-packed in the box with instructions, a black little bag where I managed to fit everything it it, the telephoto lens, a fish eye lens, a wide angle lens, and a macro lens. It also came with a tripod for the phone, and it works really well. This is amazing!" —Nathalie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    7. A teddy jacket for cozying up all season long in style. The day you have to trade this baby in for warm weather clothing might be slightly heartbreaking, just a fair warning. But don't worry, summer flies by.,

    Promising review: "OBSESSED!!! Exactly like a coat from Urban Outfitters except at a fraction of the cost. It's super comfy and warm! Love love love it! It feels expensive and is super cute. You don't have to spend so much money on trendy items — it's so not worth it when you can find cute dupes." —Vanessa

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in 16 colors, and sizes S–3XL).

    8. A craft beer-making kit to turn anyone from beginner-level to an advanced professional brew snob.

    The kit and all of the various items that come with it

    Includes a two gallon fermenter, two beer refills, and bottles for easy home brewing!

    Promising review: For somebody who has never made their own beer, this is perfect. It really is a discouraging turn off to go to the local home brew supply store, and be told that if you want to make your own beer, you must buy $125 or more just in equipment to get started, and that doesn't include the cost of ingredients. Mr. Beer simplifies the process, and gives you something that works well for less than half the price. I just tried my first batch, and I am quite pleased by the smooth and bold taste that I got. Using this doesn't make you less of a home brewer, it just means you are frugal and can't drop lots of money for making your own beer. Simply put, this kit is great." —Christopher Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $47.25.

    9. A one-line-a-day five-year memory book that'll serve as a fun and sweet way to keep track of your thoughts, feelings, accomplishments, and obstacles so you can look back someday on your personal growth.,

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review on this incredible journal!

    Promising review: "I've been writing in this little journal for three years now and already bought a second one just to make sure I can continue this wonderful habit into a new volume. The quality of this journal is excellent: The creators obviously put some thought into how much use it would be getting. I'm especially pleased with the paper. I tend to press really hard when I'm writing, but the ink doesn't show through on the other side at all. Highly recommended! Get a few, as you'll probably want to give some away." —EdTech-Librarian

    Get it from Amazon for $14.40.

    10. An overnight facial peel that exfoliates as you sleep so you can wake up with skin that looks brighter and feels hydrated.

    14. An electric wine bottle opener that'll make removing the cork on your bottle of vino easy, peazy, grapes become wine when they're squeezy.

    A reviewer photo of the electric wine opener being charged

    Can open up to 30 bottles on a single charge, and features a simple push-button operation. Plus, it has a comfy, soft-grip handle.

    Promising review: "As a senior citizen, I find that opening a bottle of wine can be a challenge using a manual corkscrew. This opener is great. You place it on the bottle with one hand, while holding the bottle with the other, and press a button. The corkscrew goes into the cork and will stop when it's fully inserted. Press the button again and it will remove the cork from the bottle, and then continue until the cork comes off of the corkscrew. So much easier than doing it manually. I've used it at parties and the charge will last between 20 to 30 bottles. It also comes with a charging stand and a cutter for the paper wrapped on the bottle neck." —CharmY2K

    Get it from Amazon for $17.79.

    15. An essential oil diffuser for relaxing with the sweet aroma of scents like lavender, eucalyptus, lemon, or any other essential oil you enjoy using.

    The  wooden aromatherapy diffuser

    Holds up to 200 milliliters of water, and features seven-color mood lighting. You can rotate between one fixed color, rotating between all seven, or none at all. Each color can be adjusted between bright and dim. Plus. it has four timer setting modes, and automatically powers off when the water level is too low.

    Promising review: "First off, let me say that this is the fourth diffuser that I’ve purchased both off Amazon and through local stores, and this is BY FAR been the best one I’ve used. When the girlfriend breaks three in a matter of six months, it was time to do some additional research. I hope this gives future buyers a better insight into why this diffuser is head and shoulders above the rest. If you ask anyone why they’re looking to purchase an essential oil diffuser, you’ll find the common response being, 'to feel more relaxed.' That is exactly what you get with this diffuser. The aesthetically pleasing wood grain, coupled with a low, sleek design gives you the ability to hide this away, or show it off in any room. The diffuser comes with over 15 different light settings and an angled flow which is rare to find. Oh, and it doesn’t stop there! The manual came with additional coupons for future oil purchases and even included various essential oil recipes. But, I’d have to say the BEST feature about this diffuser HAS GOT to be the 18-MONTH WARRANTY!! And that, my friends, is the ultimate way to feel more relaxed." —Josh

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in two finishes).

    The PhoneSoap in aqua
    @phonesoap / Via

    We recently purchased a PhoneSoap for our house, and I have to say, it's really great! It's so easy to use! You just put in your phone, your keys, credit cards, cash, etc., closet the cover, and in about 10 minutes, it's clean! It's much easier and a lot less wasteful than having to wipe down everything with wipes. Plus, during this time of life, it gives extra peace of mind that things we touch and use regularly are sanitized after running out to do errands.

    Promising review: "What a perfect gadget for getting your phone clean. After touching who knows what while commuting to work, and it being that time of year everyone around you gets sick, this comes in handy. After the first use it looked great, and then I wiped it down with the sponge that came with it. I feel so much better about using my phone now." —Crystal Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    17. A framed custom constellation map for a view of what the night sky looked light based on the date and location you provide. Perhaps your birth date, your wedding night, or any other special occasion you'd like to commemorate.

    Made of heavy-weight aluminized steel for the best heat conduction and even baking and releasing. It's silicone-based, and made with non-stick coating. The pan is dishwasher-safe, but hand-washing is recommending to extend product life.

    Promising review: "As someone who has a child, (now a teenager), that will not eat any form of cheese, this pan is amazing! I typically avoid making any food that has cheese mixed into it, but now I can make him a section without cheese, and the rest of us our regular cheesy goodness. Another benefit to this pan is how well the portions slice. One cut with the spatula gives you a perfectly formed square. Each section makes four regular-sized portions for our family." —TLC

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    20. A Disney font wooden name sign to add a touch of Disney magic to the lucky space where you choose to hang your name sign.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh, I love this! I got mine in the mail yesterday and ended up playing with it for about five hours last night LOL. 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

    Promising review: "Let me start this off by saying I am NOT a review writer. Not when stuff is bad, not when stuff is good. But I HAD to tell you all how amazing this stuff is in case you’re having skin issues and are hesitant to find out if this will even help. I’m a nurse in the ED and have been struck with the worst 'mask-ne' since wearing a face mask 40+ hours a week. I started using this stuff once a week, (accompanied by my daily routine), and have gotten great results. It smells great. Immediately after using, my skin feels so rejuvenated. If my face is particularly broken out that night, it’s NOTABLY improved immediately, but especially the next morning. I highly recommend it!" —Stephanie

    Get it from Glossier for $22.

    24. A thickened down jacket to keep you feeling warm and cozy no matter how cold or windy it gets outside.,

    Promising review: "This coat is no joke. The coldest temperature I tested it out in was 9 degrees and I did not feel like I was freezing at all! I even tried to wear with just a T-shirt, no sweaters/layers underneath, to see if I felt cold...nothing. No cold! Boomshakalaka! It's also so stylish, roomy, has a thousand pockets (goodbye purse!) and looks different from all the rest out there." —Zhure

    Promising review: "This has been one of the best purchases I’ve made. I hate waking up to a loud alarm and I’ve been wanting to find a way to do it in the least intrusive way. I used sleep cycle but same issue, I hate the loudness of the alarm even if it is waking me at my lightest sleep. Ever since buying the sunrise wake-up lamp, waking up has been the most pleasant. I’m no longer jolted awake, and as a result I feel like I have way more energy in the morning. The nature sounds are fantastic and gentle. The lamp function is definitely not going to be as bright as a regular lamp, but it is bright enough to read. Overall, a great purchase, and I don’t hate waking up now." —Lili Shi

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Last year I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of Taylor Swift's album, Lover. As a huge Taylor fan, I knew I wanted to do something special after getting the autograph, and decided on a personalized necklace with the heart from the signed booklet. CaitlynMinimalist was so wonderful! I sent in my picture, immediately received a picture of the sketch back for approval, and the necklace arrived days before it was expected to. It's one of my favorite necklaces now. While it may just look like a pretty heart necklace to some, I love wearing it and knowing that it holds such a sentimental meaning to me. I cannot recommend this shop and these personalized necklaces enough!

    Promising review: "I have chronic stomach pains and this works perfectly for me. I love the lavender scent and the heat is a perfect temperature. It does get a little moist when heated up, but most of my rice-filled heating pads do that as well, so it’s not a problem for me." —Esdv

    Promising review: "This selfie ring light is well-made. The tripod is sturdy, but lightweight, and the ring light is bright. The tripod can be set at various heights depending on the occasion, and yet it is very compact to carry around. It can stand on the floor, or be set-up on a desk — very flexible. The ring light has three modes: warm yellow, warm white, and white, as well as 10 levels of brightness. It is suitable for all kinds of lighting needs. Also, the phone clip is easy to put on and easy to secure the phone in place. I use this for selfies and for video conferencing. It works really well." —Di W.

    I originally bought this for my mom who always gets cold at night when she's watching TV, and she loves it, but it may or may not have ended up in my room one night, and now belongs to me — oops. I LOVE this thing. It truly is so warm and so perfect for cold winter nights when I wanna reach that level of toasty warm my sweatshirts alone cannot accomplish. Plus, you can do things while wearing it! I mean, how else am I gonna keep the entire length of my arms warm while trying to play The Sims? I know it's summertime right now, but this is seriously so great to buy now and keep on-hand for the moment those chilly temps come along!

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in six styles).

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $16.

    38. Warby Parker glasses for the trendiest pair of prescription glasses you'll ever own. Plus, for those who are indecisive, their at-home try on program is THE BEST.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    I started wearing glasses regularly a few years ago when I found out the reason I was experiencing migraines and eye strain almost every single day for two months was because of astigmatism and nearsightedness. Knowing that glasses would now become a part of my daily life, I wanted to be sure I bought a pair that I felt cute in, but I am SO INDECISIVE. That is where Warby Parker comes in.

    Their at-home try on program is FREE. You get to pick five frames you love, and they send them to you within a few days. You then have about a week to try them on, take pictures with them, consult your family and friends for their thoughts, and they provide a free shipping label for sending them back. You can do this more than once! You just can't order a pair of glasses until your at-home try on has been return.

    When it's time to order, you can either upload your prescription (this is the quickest option!), or Warby Parker can call your eye doctor for you. You can also choose between various add-ons. For example, because I stare at a laptop screen most of the day, my glasses contain blue-light filtering to help lessen the strain on my eyes. I now own THREE pairs of glasses from Warby Parker, and I can honestly say that thanks to their excellent customer service and trendy frames, I will be a customer for life.

    P.S. — If you have vision insurance and they help to cover the cost of glasses, Warby Parker can provide you with an insurance reimbursement form after you order!

    Get them from Warby Parker: the Laurel in Tea Rose Fade (left) starting at $95, or the Eugene in Rosewood Tortoise (right) starting at $95, and be sure to check out all of the fabulous styles Warby Parker has to offer!

    Personalization Mall

    Promising review: "I bought this custom puzzle as a Valentine's gift for my fiancé. He loved it and we put it together as a sweet activity. I was prepared for the photo to be distorted because of the cut-out, but it turned out perfect! Highly recommend!" —Elizabeth V.

    Get it from Personalization Mall for $12.79.

    40. A pair of compressive, high-rise leggings that are super stretchy, squat-proof, and buttery soft. Oh, and they're made from 25 recycled water bottles so they're sustainable, too!

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Right off the bat, I was impressed by how buttery soft these leggings were. They're super stretchy (definitely squat-proof!) and supportive without being constricting. And at $68, they're a total steal given how high-quality they are. I usually wear them for low-impact workouts, like Pilates and yoga (and lounging on the couch), but they didn't let me down during high-impact HIIT cardio classes either. The material is really breathable so even though I'm sweating a lot during my workouts, the leggings don't get swampy. They're machine-washable and still look brand-new (no pilling here!). In fact, I liked them so much that I ended up getting a second pair to give the other ones a break." —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Editor

    Be sure to check out the rest of Melanie's review of the incredible Girlfriend Collective leggings!

    Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in nine colors, three lengths, and sizes 2XS—6XL).

    41. A metal bulletin board so you have an easy place to put up photos, notes and reminders, memorabilia, and more!

    The white bulletin board on a wall

    Promising review: "This bulletin board is attractive and functional. It holds items with magnets and also with pushpins. It comes with plenty of small magnets and pushpins. The magnets that came with this bulletin board are strong enough to securely hold notes and photos with ease. I added a few large magnetic hooks, too. I bought two of these bulletin boards — one for the kitchen, and one for my desk area. Notes, cards, photos, and desk accessories are now organized and handy at my desk. In the kitchen, my potholders, oven mitts, and kitchen utensils are always ready and available. Even my house keys have a place to be." —Oregana

    Get it from Amazon for $31.65+ (available in two colors).

    42. A pair of shearling earmuffs to prevent you from ever uttering or even thinking the words, "my ears are cold," this winter.

    Nordstrom Rack

    Promising review: "I love these earmuffs! I moved to Wisconsin this year from California, and am preparing fort my first real winter. We've already had snow and low 20 temperatures, but my ears are toasty warm AND adorable." —KAT46

    Get them from Nordstrom Rack for $39.97 (available in three colors).

    43. A heat-changing constellation mug so you can drink your hot beverages in a truly out-of-this-world way. Yes, it literally transforms when you pour a hot drink inside.

    A picture showing how the empty mug is black with stars on it, and when it's filled with a hot liquid, constellations show up

    Mug is microwave-safe, but must be hand-washed!

    Promising review: "I got this for my internship so I could stop using paper cups. I love it! I get excited every time I make tea and just watch all the little constellations appear. You can see where the heat sensitive paper is along the mug, and there is a seam, but it doesn't bother me. Works like a mug should! Very pleased." —Georgeanna Stockemer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    44. A gorgeous rug that'll look perfect in your living space. The colors are neutral enough to be placed anywhere, and the pattern is chic and pretty!

    Boutique Rugs

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my rug and have gotten so many compliments on it. I even came back and purchased a matching one for my hallway. It’s soft and cozy enough that my fur kids think I bought it for them." —APRIL B.

    Get it from Boutique Rugs for $52+ (available in 11 sizes).

    45. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker that'll have you bumping your jams everywhere from your bedroom to the shower to the kitchen to the living room to anywhere else in your home that could use some tunes, aka EVERYWHERE.

    The speaker in green

    Speaker is dust-proof, mud-proof, shock-proof, rain-proof, snow-proof, and water-proof (can safely be immersed up to 1–30 minutes). Comes with a rechargeable battery and has a hands-free function, and includes a USB-cable and aux-cable.

    Promising review: "I was quite surprised at the quality of sound this unit produces, especially in light of its size. I'm currently using it in my shop, which can be quite noisy at times, but I can hear the music fine. The bass response is really very good for such a small unit, and it can play pretty loud. It linked to my iPhone in a second, and continues to play even when the phone is 30 feet away with no drop outs. It came with a charge, and played several hours before I had to recharge it. I like the voice that provides status, letting you know that it's powered on, and linked. It's so good in fact, that I am ordering another one!" —nexy jo

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in six colors).

    46. An adjustable, large standing desk for those who get easily tired from sitting down ALL.DAY.LONG.

    A person standing up and looking at their computer at eye-level with the standing desk on top of their desk

    Features a single-handle design so it can be easily adjusted with one-hand, and without force. It has a full-sized keyboard tray with a deeper work surface to fit larger keyboards, a mouse, a mousepad, and a quick-release design so it can be easily removed when doing things that don't require a keyboard or a mouse. Plus, it has 12 different height levels!

    Promising review: "I compared it to other adjustable tabletop standing desk kits and chose this one because it was wider than most. I also love that the keyboard tray is large (and detachable). Furthermore, it goes up quite high which I like because I am on the taller side. It easily adjusts to many heights, though. Another great thing about this is that the handles for adjusting the height are in the FRONT, which is nice because you don't have to bend awkwardly and hurt your back to raise it or lower it. It adjusts very fluidly without strain. It is very easy to raise or lower. I use this with a large laptop and computer monitor sitting on top and still have plenty of space in front to put a notebook should I like to take notes while working. I'm very happy with my purchase and am enjoying the benefits of being able to sit or stand as needed while working at home or even playing video games. My doctor actually recommended that I purchase one because I have low back pain and sitting for too long aggravates it. Getting up to take a break helps some, but isn't always conducive to getting a lot of work done. This makes it so I can quickly raise it, keep working, and stand for even longer periods than small breaks throughout my day." —Amanda W

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99+ (available in three sizes).

    47. A Cadbury selection box so you can bring your taste buds on a delicious trip across the pond.

    Comes with one Curly Wurly, one Picnic, one Twirl, one Starbar, one Crunchie, one Wispa, one Dairy Milk Caramel, one Double Decker, one Dairy Milk, and one Flake.

    Promising review: "Just received several days ahead of estimated delivery which was very nice. All the chocolates/candy are very freshly dated and were protected by the packaging. The box itself was a bit dented but everything inside was perfect. I am very happy with this purchase. Several years ago, I went to a local British store and bought about $40 worth of candy for a British vs. American 'taste-off' for the kids, (we would read a book and then try to eat meals/snacks like the characters for a new experience). This was so much less expensive and I saved myself the two-hour round-trip drive. Can't wait to show the kids and remind them of that taste-off picnic!" —dp

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    48. A sleeping mask to help smooth and hydrate your skin overnight. Just apply before bed, go to sleep, wake up, and voila — the easiest skin care routine in the world.

    A person scooping up a spoonful of the sleep mask

    Good for normal, oily, combination, dry, and sensitive skin. It's paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free. To use, use two scoopers or a generous layer on the skin as the final step of your evening skincare routine. For dry skin, layer an additional dime-sized amount. Gently pat the mask (NOT rub) into the skin until absorbed and wash thoroughly in the morning.

    Promising review: "I've never been the type of person to leave reviews, but with this I have to. I've been using this for almost a month and I use it on a daily basis. When I have breakouts I apply this at night, and the next morning I wake up and the breakout has shrunk tremendously or is almost gone. Not to mention, it's made my face so much brighter and softer! I use this religiously and have found a little goes a long way. I love this product so much. Even with my oily skin, it doesn't cause my skin to feel oily. It is PERFECT." —kaitykaitt

    Get it from Sephora for $22+ (available in two sizes).

    49. A Himalayan pink salt lamp that'll add a nice, warm glow into any room, while easily becoming the coolest decoration you own.

    The Himalayan salt lamp

    Comes with a pre-installed light bulb, and a 5.6 foot cord with a patented dimmer switch to adjust brightness.

    Promising review: "I purchased this salt lamp with low expectations of any kind of benefits. The price point is low enough to be worth the risk, and it is a good-looking decoration. I can say that I have been blown away by the performance of this lamp. I turn it on a dim setting when I sleep, and have noticed that when I wake up, I have less 'eye boogers,' and can breathe better through my nose. I assume this is due to the dust, pollen, general particle-attracting characteristic of the salt lamp. I have used all sorts of diffusers and oils, nose filters, etc., and this lamp has given me better results than all of them. Considering I live in the land of pollen (Florida), this lamp is invaluable. I like it so much, I bought another after a week of using it!" —BJ L

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    50. A pair of suede slippers with a sheepskin lining to keep your feet feeling extra cozy. Warning: once you put these on, you may NEVER want to take them off.

    The tan suede slippers

    Promising review: "I'm now wearing my second pair of these slippers slippers, and it isn't due to a flaw in materials or craftsmanship. The simple reason is I WEAR them ALL THE TIME!! They simply wear out because I wear them/love them until they start falling apart after a couple years. Great warmth, comfort, and soul for wearing outside, as well as in the house." —Sioux430

    Get them from Cabela's for $49.99 (available in sizes 6—11).

    51. A denim mini skirt available in a wide array of colors for becoming your new favorite skirt and finding new ways of pairing with all your favorite tops. Jeans? Leggings? Shorts? We don't know them anymore.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I love this skirt! It fits so well. I plan on wearing it with band tees, but it’s also cute with oversized sweaters or a thermal or moto jacket. Such a good staple piece!" —meganrn

    Get it from Free People for $50 (available in seven colors, and sizes 0–12).

    52. An Echo Dot to basically serve as your own personal assistant of sorts. Wanna play music? Read the news? Find out what the weather outside is like? Just ask this handy device those things, and SO much more.

    The Heather gray Echo Dot

    Allows you to stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music (coming soon), Spotify, Sirius XM, and more. You can also ask Alexa to play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more! You can call and message almost anyone hands-free, and drop-in on other rooms to make announcements with compatible devices.

    Promising review: "I've waited for a smart home speaker for some time because I wasn't sure which one I should get, since there are a few to consider. I chose the Echo Dot for a few reasons. It has a ton of support for smart devices and they have many app skills to pick from. The sound quality is great! I was really surprised by how much sound comes from this little device. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids, and I am very pleased with the sound. I am having a great time connecting it to some of my devices like my Xbox One, Bluetooth headsets, and speaker system. I plan on ordering more smart plugs to control my lamps and fan for starters, and may look into an Alexa-controlled smart TV. All I can say is that Amazon has really made a great upgrade to the previous versions. It was part of the reasons why I picked this one. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a small smart speaker with the ability to control devices, and a great assistant." —Phantom Phreak

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in four colors).

    53. A divided skillet for anyone — which is probably everyone — who wants to cook the whole meal in one go and not separately.

    The sectioned skillet with various different food items in the various compartments

    Features five compartments. It only requires one burner, and it's non-stick and stain-resistant. Plus, it features double layer non-stick coating that is PFOA-free. It's both oven- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Now that I have cooked a few meals with this pan, I can honestly say that I will no longer be needing all my other pans. It just does it all. Cooking multiple ingredients at the same time and then infusing them together to mix the flavors is something that I have never been able to do before. Keep the pan at a medium heat to always get the best cook, because foods cook differently, and you can take your time in preparing your meal. I recommend this to pretty much anyone that likes to cook and mostly to the ones that dread it!" —Dan S

    Get it from Amazon for $42.98.

    54. 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!

    The two touch lamps lit up in blue

    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." —Mama

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

    55. A Certified Piedmontese Beef Club subscription that'll ship high-quality, gourmet meat to your door either monthly or quarterly. Say goodbye to struggling to choose the perfect cuts at the grocery store.

    56. Hedbanz — a fun game of guessing which character or celebrity you are, while asking the other players yes or no questions to help figure it out.


    Promising review: "This is a fun and very simple game to play with other adults. It is basically an enhanced 'who am I' game. You take a headband, and put a card in it, then you have to ask questions to other people in order to guess who is on your headband. The game comes with the cards, the headband, and a timer. You have 90 seconds to ask yes or no questions until you can guess who is on your card. It is a really fun game to play with others. This game is an 'adult' version of the game, so the characters, etc. on the cards are more geared towards things that adults would know. Overall, a really fun and simple game to play. It takes a minute to learn, and can be a great time with a group of friends." —Jonathan Pedrone

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.
