    1. Aviator sunglasses, because we'll be getting some seriously sunny days soon, so let's protect those peepers while *also* looking oh-so-stylish.,

    Promising review: "I love that these glasses are polarized and it comes with a testing strip to check. They are lightweight and I’m convinced that this style looks good on anyone. It came in a box with a black sleeve and cleaning cloth. It was packaged very well! I’ve had a similar style to these before but the metal pierced my ears and nose — none of which these do! That’s the advantage of being lightweight. " —A. Holstein

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in nine colors).

    2. A produce hammock to get your fruits off the counter, clearing up space in an adorable way.

    The produce hammock

    KnappsKnots is a small business based in San Diego that specializes in handmade macrame and wood crafts.

    Promising review: "It’s the perfect addition to clear some counter space in my small kitchen. Everything I needed was included aside from a drill to predrill some starter holes for the hooks. My husband cut down the dowels an inch or so to fit under our narrow cabinets. The color of yarn I chose matches well with our kitchen colors and I love the style of yarn it was made with. Thank you!" —Kayla

    Get it from KnappsKnots on Etsy for $27.90+ (available in two sizes and 11 colors).

    3. A brow detailing pen that creates feather-like strokes, making your eyebrows look ~snatched~ and defined for the entire day.

    A before and after of a person's eyebrow

    Promising review: "This one took me a while to get used to. A good chunk of practice. But now I would not go a day without it! It’s stayed on through work (I have a physically demanding job), hiking, water sports, the gym.. and once you get used to how the product goes on best for you, it looks great! I still have days when I can’t get it exactly right, so stick in there. I promise you won’t find anything better!" —Lisa

    Get it from Glossier for $18.

    4. A shoe whitener so you can bring your old chunky sneakers back to their glory days with just one application. Just look at those pearly whites!

    Two shoes, one with the solution on and the other without

    Promising review: "This product works miracles. My poor vans became dirty, so I cleaned them and made the intelligent decision to use peroxide and put them in the sun to dry. Even with the yellowing and deep stains, this product brought them back to their bright dazzling glory and it looks decently brand new. Love it!!!!" —Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    5. An anti-blister balm you apply to your feet *before* you wear your favorite (but painful) shoes. The balm will basically soften your skin, keep your pores clog-free for maximum breathability, *and* helps minimize inflammation.

    The anti-blister balm

    Promising review: "Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub off the skin. My feet survived an entire day, INTACT! Highly recommend. This product made wearing shoes that rub on your ankles/backs of your feet doable!!!!" —Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    6. An Everyplate subscription, because we deal with a lot in our lives and an opportunity to automate a task is a good one for me.

    A pasta dish
    Everyplate / Via

    Every week, you can choose between 13 different meal options, including vegetarian recipes!

    Get it from Everyplate for $4.99/serving plus $8.99 for shipping (available in servings of two or four and three, four, or five meals per week).

    7. An Etude House drying powder for that pesky oily skin you (me) deal with on a daily basis. This bad boy will matte your face without leaving it clumpy or powdery. No Flashback Marys here!

    A before and after of a person with oily skin

    Promising review: "I'm two weeks in with this product. My skin is so oily to the point where I've been asked on multiple occasions if I'm hot because my face looks sweaty. When I apply this powder, I look like a perfect matte doll. Then after two hours, it's still matte. After four, it's mostly matte (light amount of oil). However, after I blot my face is so matte still that it looks like I put on a fresh face of makeup. No sticky after oil blotting feeling, no having to reapply, and still kicking butt for a full 8 hours." —Zhanna

    Get it from Amazon for $5.93.

    8. An inflatable swimming pool that you'll basically live in all summer long, even if you get permanent pruney fingers. It can fit either two adults, three to five kids, or just one you, which is all that matters.

    A person in an inflatable pool

    Promising review: "This arrived within a week and inflated in minutes (the secret is a hairdryer and a sawed-off water bottle). This baby is strong. It can take 100+ degree-Palm Springs heat AND the neighbor's annoying cat who likes to rest his claws on the top while he drinks. Deep enough for me to float on my raft and pretend I don't have a care in the world." —L. Harris

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    9. An exfoliating scrub for those self-care days when you're looking for some seriously smooth, soft, and glowy skin. AKA me every day, duh.


    Promising review: "This solution is the best on the market & you can't beat the price! I apply it after I've washed my face with the Milky Jelly Cleanser. my skin never looked better! The ruddiness skin tone has disappeared after using the solution for one month. It is now part of my daily skincare routine." —Julie C.

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    10. A manual massage ball to roll on any and every sore muscle you can reach on your body. Thighs? Heck yeah! Arms? You betcha! Neck? Obviously!

    The massage ball

    Promising review: "Amazing. Seriously, buy this. It is the best back massage I’ve ever had. I have trouble with my wrists and hands and can’t massage my husband’s back for very long. This is small and easily fits in my hand. I can give him a great massage without pain. He massaged my back with it as well and it’s phenomenal! I would definitely buy this again and I’ve recommended it to my family." —Mifflinpartyofthree

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in four colors).

    11. A handmade candle for when you can't really figure out the words you want to say to your bestie. "I hate everybody but you" would be the perfect one, imo.

    The candle

    JNCandleCo is a small business based in California that sells personalized candles.

    Promising review: "It got here super quick and it’s so cute and looks exactly like the picture. Smells amazing!! I recommend the scent Hippie Dippie!" —Haley

    Get it from JNCandleCo on Etsy for $12+ (available in six sizes and 10 scents).

    12. A sushi-making kit because you saw Samantha Jones do it that one time on SATC and now you want to recreate it for your partner.,

    Promising review: "The entire Bamboo Sushi Kit is absolutely well-made, easy to use, easy to clean, high-end restaurant quality, and durable. it was very nicely packaged, and instructions clear, in-depth, and very easy to follow. No one (myself included) in my household has ever made Sushi before but (thanks to the enclosed instructions), there were no issues making it." —Liza

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    13. An Atlas Coffee Club subscription that will send you exotic coffees from all over the world so you never have to figure out at the grocery store what roast you're going to choose for the week.

    The coffee
    Atlas Coffee Club / Via

    Get it from Atlas Coffee starting at $9/month (available in three sizes).

    14. A bug zapper because nothing is a bigger buzzkill (see what I did there?) than bugs pestering you every time you try and relax outside.

    The bug zapper

    Promising review: "This is the first bug zapper I've purchased and I am not disappointed. I turn it on right before sunset and leave it on throughout the night, I will probably put it on a timer for more ease. Upon opening, it's lightweight but constructed quite well, it even has a pull-out drawer for dead bugs to fall and will make for easy cleanup. I might just purchase another for the opposite side of my yard for double protection! It was definitely worth the purchase." —Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $39.96.

    15. A baby food dispensing spoon so you don't have to waste precious attention spans reaching for food from the jar to feed your kiddo. Bon appétite, bebe!

    baby being fed by the bottle spoon combo

    Promising review: "This product is Amazing!!! I happened to get a hand-me-down boon spoon about eight years ago. I saved it for years to use with my other kids. I needed more to use since I now had kids in sports/activities and I was always on the go. I would put my baby's food in one of these and take it to go in my diaper bag. They come with a spoon cover that is hard plastic that covers the hole where the food comes out of. The body of the spoon is a soft silicone that you gently squeeze to get the pureed food out. The spoon itself is a hard plastic but we had no issues. It is easy to clean and comes apart in two pieces. Seriously, best gadget ever! This is coming from a mother of four who has probably owned and purchased every gadget out there to make life easier!!" —castgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $8.73+ (available in four colors).

    16. A screen repair kit to tape up your screen door, keeping all the buggies out and the fun in.

    The screen tape on a window

    Promising review: "Completely satisfied with this product, it fixed the 20-year-old holes in our gazebo's screen. The trick is to apply the product just beyond where the hole gap is and then heat with a blow dryer. After you press down from the opposite side, you will have a good seal. This beats replacing the entire screen if it's good besides the holes." —Amazon customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two colors).

    17. Squalane oil that will instantly hydrate your skin and lock in much-needed moisture for that glowy skin you've been dreaming about. Best part? It's vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, *and* peg-free. It's basically ~perfect~.

    The squalane oil

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this product daily for the past year, and my skin has never felt better. After every shower, I moisturize and never feel greasy because of how quickly the oil absorbs. I’ve recommended it to everyone I know." —Anonymous

    Get it from Biossance for $32.

    18. Self-watering glass shaped like a cute little bird to keep your plants watered while also looking like a great piece of decor in your home.

    The watering glass

    Promising review: "Cute and great deal. These are small and are meant for smaller plants. They are a little tricky to fill but you get used to it. I added water in mine a week ago and I still have plenty of water left." —Luis Mon

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    19. An after-sun soother because try as you will, you'll probably end up getting a bit *too* much sun one day this summer and you'll regret not buying this aloe and coconut oil lotion.

    A before and after photo of a sunburn

    Promising review: "This is the best product ever for sunburns! There is no peeling or itching. It's simply amazing!" —Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.64.

    20. Camping lanterns that will provide much-needed night when you're in the middle of the woods, out of power at home, or just in your own little blanket fort in the bedroom. Bonus: it's collapsible, which lets your control how bright the light is! Huzzah!

    Promising review: "We are campers. These compact, easy-to-use lanterns are ideal, especially for their price. For such little lanterns and not many batteries, these put off a good amount of light due to the led bulbs that are used in them. The hanging feature is great as well. We could place this on our picnic table or have the option to hang them from the interior hook built into the roof of our tent. It provided plenty of light for us to take care of before bed things. These are a great addition to our camping bins." —M. Thompson

    Get it from Amazon for $17.97.

    21. A natural beehive to attract those friendly little pollinators to your garden, making your yard bloom and thrive.

    The beehive

    Promising review: "So freakin’ cute. Adorable little bee house! It seems tidy and well made. I also love the modern hexagon shape. I'm putting this in my backyard meditation studio. Save the bees!" —Margie Gale

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    22. A reusable sponge that is washable, meaning you don't have to deal with that stinky sponge smell EVER again. This is the height of luxury!

    The reusable sponge

    MarleysMonsters is a small business based out of Eugene, Oregon that specializes in eco-friendly home essentials such as sponges, trash liners, and towels.

    Promising review: "I got the chance to use the washable sponge yesterday! We don't have a dishwasher, and while we have the bristled brushes to wash our dishes sometimes it seemed like it took me more water to wash the dishes...that isn't very eco-friendly. Here comes the washable sponge! I was able to wash all the dishes quite promptly with not a ton of soap. Very excited about my purchase, it will make the chore a lot easier!" —Fatesrelease

    Get it from MarleysMonsters on Etsy for $12+ (available in two styles and four colors).

    23. A ruffled one-piece bathing suit so cute, you'll ask all of your friends to do an IG photoshoot of you every time you wear it. #summervibes

    A person wearing a green ruffled one-piece

    Promising review: "This bathing suit is amazing! It is so comfortable! I’ve gotten so many compliments." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and 19 colors).

    24. An Ilia lash mascara that will lift, curl, *and* lengthen your natural lashes so beautifully, people will think they're falsies. It's 99% naturally derived, meaning it's gentle enough even for sensitive eyes.

    The mascara

    Promising review: "Best mascara I've ever used!!! I don't like waterproof mascara. This one wears nice and holds together very well. It also doesn't smudge or crumble throughout the day. It doesn't even bother my eyes, unlike other mascaras. This one is great and I highly recommend it!" —Julie M.

    Get it from Ilia Beauty for $13.

    25. A ball launcher because your pup wants some exercise and your arm can only throw so far. This bad boy will, quite literally, launch the ball three times further than you could throw. Now you'll really see Fido run.

    A dog jumping for a ball on a ball launcher

    Promising review: "I have a young golden retriever who would retrieve balls and frisbees all day long if my arm could take it. I bought the 26M Chuck-It and love it! I can throw the ball a lot farther and for more throws, so he gets more exercise. I love that I no longer need to bend over to pick up the ball or have to touch a slimy, sandy, filthy ball! It's quite intuitive to use and within about three throws you'll have it down perfectly. You can also use regular tennis balls with it." —Pupspicacious

    Get it from Amazon for $6.07.

    26. An instant coffee cooler so you don't have to use ice to cool down your hot coffee in the morning. It has three compartments, two of which are for water you freeze, and the other is where your hot coffee will go. Add the liquid and it'll be cold in 30 seconds of swishing.

    The coffee cooler

    I just recently bought this for myself and when I tell you I'm obsessed, I mean it. I typically just let it sit in the cooler without swishing, and it'll make your drink cold in about three minutes. Like, ice cold. It's magic. 

    Promising review: "I am an avid (i.e. daily) iced coffee drinker, but I have been extremely hesitant to make my own iced coffee at home because I didn’t want the bitter flavor from two-day-old coffee or the watered-down nature of just adding ice to coffee.  Thanks to the HyperChiller, I have now found a solution!!!  The HyperChilller worked like a CHARM today!!!  I was able to create my own iced coffee directly from my coffee maker in the comfort of my own home.  I guarantee this item will be used frequently!  Great job!" —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    27. A bingo game perfect for anyone who is trying to build their English language skills but wants to do it in a fun way.

    The bingo cards

    Promising review: "Our first grader was feeling really discouraged with her sight words and I've been trying to think of ways to encourage her and get her excited to learn things she doesn't already know. She loved this game! I think this is a great way to make learning/practicing sight words fun! We ordered level 2 as well for when these are too easy. I'm very happy with this purchase and I can see how it would be great for teachers in the classroom as well!!" —Jennie

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. A vegetable brush because you know how dirty those potatoes and beets look, let's give them a good scrub for once.

    Promising review: "The bristles have just the right stiffness and "give" to clean potatoes, carrots, parsnips, etc. I haven't used it on corn-on-cob yet but I think it will do quite well without damaging the kernels. As with most OXO products, it is ergonomically designed and even fits in my smaller hands – so much so, I believe it would be a good tool for arthritic cooks." —D. Lofthus

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    29. A Hunt-A-Killer subscription that tells a story over the course of six "episodes" or boxes. You (and friends!) can sort through evidence, decode ciphers, figure out clues, and hopefully solve the crime! Basically, a *really* fun weekend game night idea.

    Hunt A Killer

    Get it from Hunt-A-Killer starting at $140 for a box set.

    30. A cat pop-up tent so your feline buddy can enjoy the outside without worrying about them running away and getting hurt. Enjoy the sunshine, Mr. Bigglesworth!

    A cat lounging in a tent

    Promising review: "Our cat loves this tent! She loves just chilling outside with us and watching the wildlife. She's a smaller cat and has tons of space! I like this one compared to others because of the price, but also that it has a tarp bottom instead of mesh, so she doesn't get dirty or wet. We even put a little blanket in there for her and she lays right down and has a bath. It also seems pretty sturdy because sometimes we put it inside so they can check it out and they play on it and haven't ripped it yet. Definitely recommend if your cat likes being outside!" —Toodles

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    31. Quick-dry yoga socks that are honestly ridiculously versatile. You can wear these with your water shoes to prevent blisters, during yoga to reduce slipping, and even while wakeboarding! The possibilities are ~endless~ and they come in 44 colors!

    Three people wearing aqua socks

    Promising review: "Wore these on a cruise...swam in 3 spots in the Caribbean, and they were so comfortable and protective. No sand collected inside and they dried quickly. Several other cruise guests loved them and wanted to know where I got them. Fit like a glove (or comfy smooth sock). Definitely a good purchase!" —Leona J. Martin

    Get it from Amazon for $7.68+ (available in sizes 4–13.5 and 44 colors).

    32. A crystal suncatcher so when you're not outside catching your own sun rays, this little ball will. At certain angles, you may even see rainbows reflected around your room!,

    Promising review: "I love these and my cats do too! When I gently spin one hung in front of a window (with the right lighting) my cats chase the rainbows around the room." —Nancy O.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.
