    Promising review: "This pillowcase is a 'national treasure.' If you have this beauty in your 'arsenal' you will be envy of all your friends but don't let this get 'stolen' or you will feel 'left behind' 'knowing' you have 'a score to settle' and a drive to 'kick ass.'

    Promising review: "Got this on a whim because my girlfriend wanted to paint the dog's nails. The polish went on easily and stayed on. We were cutting the grass and the dog went out and played in the fresh-cut grass, running around, and it's still on! A little scuffed but still pretty much solidly on. So far two days have gone by and it's still on. We're going to get more colors." —Diaztortillas

    Promising review: “These molds worked perfectly! I filled them with puréed berries and they took the shape of the mold excellently. It was very easy to peel off the silicone mold so the ice pop did not lose any shape or detail. I rinsed the mold with hot water and tossed in in the top rack of the dishwasher to wash.” —Finest018

My son and I love watching them so close. I HIGHLY recommend this feeder. I'd also add that the customer support team emailed a few days after I received the feeder to see if I was happy — I had not yet met my baby cardinals. I received an immediate response with tips to draw birds and it worked." —Jillian1973

    Promising review: "I saw one of these in action at a friend's house like five years ago and thought it was just a made up memory, because making ice cream out of solely frozen fruit seems wild. But when I saw a TikTok about it I immediately went to Amazon and bought it. Literally this was the BEST decision of my life. I cannot believe still how amazing this thing is! It makes the creamiest, best-tasting fruit ice cream ever. It’s easy to take apart and clean, and super easy to use." —DMCKAY

    23. A carton of popcorn seasoning salt so your at-home movie night snack rivals that of your local movie theater.

    BuzzFeed writer Emma Lord only has good things to say about this:

    "Our family recently unearthed this because beloved To All The Boys I've Loved Before author Jenny Han mentioned that it was her secret to delicious popcorn, and it may have just wrecked me for other at-home popcorn for the rest of my life. It genuinely tastes just as salty and buttery and savory as fresh movie theater popcorn. I inhaled it so fast that every single one of my organs lit up in mild alarm."
