    Amazon has a list of products called “Movers and Shakers,” which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently “trending.”

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things found on the list this week.

    1. A darling Benevolence LA “Love” charm necklace you’ll never, ever want to take off. And we can’t blame you.

    Proceeds from you purchase go toward helping fund Benevolence LA’s third clean water project in Africa.

    Promising Review: “I love this company and what it stands for, and so does my mother. This isn't the only item I own from Benevolence LA, and it won't be the last. The chain has held up for me, and I tend to break things. The chain is also a nice length. And the charm is very shiny and petite. Mom loved the length of this necklace, and so do I.” —Elizabeth

    Price: $8.99

    2. A pretty, winged fidget spinner to help all your stress fly the hell away.

    Promising Review: “This is very attractive and inexpensive. My boss was in the office last week, and I swear I thought he was going to try to steal it when he left! This will be the easiest office Christmas gift I ever buy! The construction is also sturdy, and I love that there was some real effort put into making it look attractive. It looks more mature than your typical dime-a-dozen spinners.” —Chris S

    Price: $3

    3. Lightweight mesh sneakers versatile enough for workouts at the gym or while rocking your latest sporty-chic look.

It simultaneously weaves the stories of a blind French girl who is learning to navigate life, a brilliant radio engineer who gets sent to Nazi school, and a priceless diamond that is rumored to be cursed. I found myself holding my breath as I read on because I was so wrapped up in this story.” —Robbie

    Price: $12.27+ (available on Kindle, hardcover, paperback, audiobook, and audio CD).

    5. A Remington Pearl Pro ceramic flat iron with a 30-second heat-up time for luxurious hair you’ll want to toss everywhere you go.

    Promising Review: “I’ve only ever owned a Chi flat iron and I have very thick and wavy hair. But my Chi broke and I couldn't afford to spend $100 on a new one. I took a chance on this flat iron and I'm so impressed. My hair is straight as a board!” —Audrey Clement

    10. A bottle of multipurpose argan oil moisturizing enough to be used on your hair, body, and even your face.

    Promising Review: “This is my first experience using argan oil on my skin. I was nervous adding oil to my face because I have had problems with blackheads my whole life. I've been using it approximately one week, and so far I love it. It absorbs to a non-greasy, healthy glow. And my face is extremely soft. I also applied a small amount to my hair and it is very soft, with a high shine.” —Mostly

There are so many options in here that I bet you can cook a month and not eat the same thing twice. It’s worth every penny!” —Kris

I cannot describe the feeling of roasting that little prick! I'm almost 30. But today I was feeling like a 10-year-old thanks to this thing. I even went out to chase whatever I could find on my porch. Thanks Zap-It for bringing additional joy to my life.” —Pic Amez
