    1. A lovely hanging planter shelf to display your favorite greenery in the most fabulous way.

    Promising review: “This hanging shelf looks like the photograph and is exactly what I was looking for. I LOVE it! It’s so cool and beats just a hanging plant. You can have a plant, stones, and a basket on it!” —CD125

    Price: $19.99

    2. A copy of The Gifts of Imperfection so you can challenge yourself to abandon expectations and live the life you truly dream for yourself.


Promising review: “My goodness, this book is challenging! However, I am a huge fan of Brene Brown, so I am reading all of her books, even if the truth she speaks is the last thing I want to hear. This book has really helped me to examine my intentions behind my actions and then revise my thinking to be more whole-hearted. I have learned a lot about my own disordered thoughts and behaviors, where they might stem from, and what to do about them. I now find myself recognizing destructive cycles and breaking the thought chain before it can spiral out of control. That has drastically improved my life and my relationships. This book has been a tremendous blessing in disguise as I venture out into life on my own post-college.” —Emma C 

    Price: $8.99+

    3. A silicone baking mat for accurately measuring out dough for breads, pizzas, and other tasty dishes.

    The mat is made of FDA-approved, food-grade silicone and is stain-proof, BPA-free, stick-resistant, and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: “This is an awesome mat. I use it regularly while making bread. The best thing is that it sticks to the surface. So when kneading and rolling dough, the sheet does not fold back. The size of the sheet is also big enough to make a big pizza. It's also very easy to clean. So now when I'm making bread dough, I don’t have to worry about the mess that is left afterwards.” —Deshmukh

    Price: $12.99

    4. A bottle of NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer, which'll reduce discoloration and redness while giving your skin a radiant glow.,

    Promising review: “A little goes a long way with this primer. You'll feel like you're not applying enough, but when you rub it in, you see that it's more than expected. After the product is applied, your face is literally glowing. You can also feel the layer of protection you just applied to your face, ready to create a barrier for your pores from makeup. I'm really enjoying this primer and will probably purchase it again!” —Amazon Customer

    Price: $11.30

    5. An Ivation Foot Spa to relieve tired and sore feet while you relax in the comfort of your own home.

    The foot spa includes a brush attachment, acupressure attachment, and user’s guide. 

    Promising review: “My husband is diabetic and very careful when taking care of his feet. I researched many other foot spas, and this one had the most information and best rating. It's deep, allows for bubble bath or epsom-salts-type products to be added, and keeps the water temperature exactly what you set it for. My husband has a size 10 foot, and he says it fits his foot quite well, with still having plenty of room. He also likes that the motorized rollers massage his feet and the varied attachments are quite useful. It’s definitely worth the price!” —Mouse in Virginia

    Price: $79.99 

    6. An jar of Mean Green hand scrub so you can banish dirt, grease, paint, ink, and even sticky substances from your hands without the use of harsh solvents or other skin irritants.

    Numerous reviewers have also noted that the hand scrub works great to treat poison ivy rashes.

    Promising review: “I often work on my own cars. And although I try to use vinyl gloves to keep my hands clean, I almost always take them off at some point because they either make my hands sweat like crazy in warmer weather or I need more tactile feel when handling small nuts and bolts. Once the gloves come off the hands can get filthy real quick with the grease, oil, and dirt resident under the hood. This hand cleaner is the best I've ever used and there will always be a container of it kept under the sink for those times when my hands are really dirty. Whether your skin has been soiled by the car or the garden, you can't beat this stuff.” —Camp Zama

    Price: $15.99

    7. A sleek Finishing Touch hair remover with 18K gold plating, for painlessly removing facial hair from sensitive areas like lips, chins, and cheeks.

    Promising review: “This thing actually works. I will never have to get my lip waxed again! I am highly allergic wax, even the wax that is made for sensitive skin. I always break out. This thing will now save me that discomfort. It makes for easy cleanup and causes ZERO pain!” —Ninavision 

    Price: $19.99 (available in five colors)

    8. A Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm Blaster — which can hold six Elite darts — so you’ll be more than ready for the next Nerf battle with your crew.

    The blaster includes six Elite darts and an instruction manual.

Promising review: “My son LOVES this blaster. He has had it for over a year now and it has held up great. He continues to battle with the neighbor boys, and I cannot believe it is holding up so well!” —Renee R

Price: $12.99

    9. A copy of The Last Black Unicorn to capture your attention AND heart with autobiographical essays recounting beloved comedian Tiffany Haddish’s journey to making her dreams a reality.

    Promising review: “I love Tiffany and I loved this book. The whole time I was reading it, I could hear her voice detailing the ups and downs in her journey. I love her honesty and how she can find beauty in pain. I knew she was funny. But there is so much more than meets the eye, and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store.” —Angela Freeman 

    Price: $11+ 

    10. A pair of Sennheiser RS120 on-ear headphones you can use for experiencing quality audio while using TVs, sound systems, computers, and other hi-fi Audio devices with an RCA output.

    The headphones — which come with a charging dock — include a wireless transmitter that acts as the headphone charging dock and two AAA NiMH rechargeable batteries. They also have a two-year limited warranty.

    Promising review: “This is my first experience using wireless headphones for the TV — why didn't I think of trying this sooner?! I live in an older apartment, and apparently sound insulation was not a top priority, so I have been concerned that my TV might be bothering the neighbors. So hellom headphones! The sound quality is good. And there is the added benefit of helping block out my neighbors' noises as well!” —Cohikinggal

    Price: $109.04

    11. A Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo and conditioner set to strengthen and hydrate your hair and stimulate your scalp.

    Promising review: “This has changed my damaged hair! Now it's soft and smooth with no more little fly-away hairs all over my head. I am a professional cosmetologist and use this over all the pricey professional products out there. It works great at regrowth and damage. It’s a great product!” —Amazon Customer 

    Price: $21.98 

    12. A Mindfulness Matters game for helping adolescents and teens expand their mindfulness skills and learn new ways to build those techniques into their daily lives.

    The game includes 58 cards, instructions, and tips for success. It can be played in 15 to 25 minutes.

Promising review: “I am a therapist and work with adolescents age 12 to 17. This game is both simple and challenging enough for my clients. It is wonderful to see them overcome their hesitation and complete each activity to earn a letter. This is such a great teaching tool, and I highly recommend this game for everyone who works with children and adolescents.” —Diane

    Price: $17.99

    13. A pack of fragrance-free Babyganics hand sanitizer, which’ll be your first line of defense against gross germs while you’re on the go.

    The pack includes six bottles of hand sanitizer, which are free of triclosan, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and artificial fragrances and dyes.

    Promising review: “We love this sanitizer and use it every day. We go to Disney World several times a month, so these really come in handy! They are the perfect size to keep in diaper bags, strollers, cars, and other places you need to quickly access hand sanitizer. I also like that they are foam, which makes it easier to apply than standard liquid sanitizer. It’s safer for my kids to use, as well!” —Jesse G

    Price: $18.75

    14. A FIXD OBD-II Car Health Monitor so you can stay on top of any possible maintenance issues with your vehicle.

    The monitor provides a check-engine-light diagnosis, breaking down why the light is on and what needs to be done to correct the issue. It also offers maintenance reminders, alerting you when you need an oil change. Plus, you can monitor all of your vehicles connected to the FIXD devices, tracking them in the FIXD app. It does not, however, detect airbag maintenance, TPMS, or ABS lights. The device works with any gas-powered vehicle that is a 1996 model or newer.

    Promising review: “This is the best thing ever! I bought it due to me needing a car quick. I took this everywhere I went to see cars. It saved me from getting nice-looking cars that had possible issues. Once plugged in, all the codes popped up like Christmas lights in some of the vehicles I was interested in. It is Incredible how much info this provided. And the best part is, even for your own car, it keeps an eye out on things and tells you suggested maintenance schedules to keep you on track.” —Jenny Olivo

    Price: $59.99

    15. A storage bench with three drawers for expanding your organization options while keeping your home looking oh-so cute.

Promising review: This bench is much more durable than anything I have ever bought from Ikea, yet the price was similar. It was time-consuming, but easy to put together. And it’s actually very sturdy. Each drawer holds about four to five pairs of adult shoes. It was the perfect size for what we needed it for!” —John Sloop 

    Price: $89.95

    16. A jar of L-Lysine Lip Ointment that puts ingredients like vitamin A, menthol, and camphor to work to heal chapped lips, fever blisters, cold sores, and other lip irritations.


Promising review: “I have tried many ointments for cold sores over the year. However, none have been as effective as this one. Normally, my cold sores crack and bleed as they are healing when I use commercial, over-the-counter products. But I did not experience any cracking, bleeding or soreness while using this ointment. I highly recommend keeping this on hand if you suffer from occasional cold sores. I know my medicine cabinet will never be without again!” —Linda

    Price: $7.61

    17. A paper towel holder with a precious turtle design that'll be a welcome guest in your bathroom or kitchen.

    Promising review: “I love the elegant look of this. It is a good weight and does not feel or look cheap in any way. Just note that smaller rolls of paper towels work best. I actually use this in a bathroom with beach decor where I want to have paper towels available. It's perfect.” —GB

    Price: $33.83

    18. A Llewellyn astrological calendar packed with monthly horoscopes, travel forecasts, and beautiful artwork so you can keep up with ALL the astrological deets for each day of the year.


Promising review: “My husband gets this calendar for me every year because I love the astrological data it gives for each day. I also love all the info that is included at the back of the calendar. I have been getting this calendar for over 20 years now and have never been disappointed.” —Mac

    Price: $11.60

    19. A set of AmazonBasics washcloths you can use for bathing, household cleaning, and other tasks.

    The set includes 24 machine-washable cloths.


Promising review: "These towels feel and look high-quality. They are very thick and soft! I'm very happy with my purchase and ended up ordering two more sets!" –Shel

    Price: $13.99 (available in eight colors)

    20. A Mantone wall mount for storing your Echo Dot or other round speakers so you won’t have to worry about fussy cords getting in your way.

    The stand is designed to fit the second generation Echo Dot and some other round speakers. It features an anti-slip rubber gasket that helps the hook fit more snugly to the wall plug.

    Promising review: “This Echo Dot wall mount is great. It holds your Echo Dot without taking any counter space. And plugging it into an outlet leaves the other outlet open for use. It includes a short cord for connecting the Dot to the A/C plug included with the Dot. This assumes that you have the original A/C adapter plug for the Dot available, which is a must-have. This wall mount works great for any place that you have an outlet available, and all of the buttons and speakers of the Dot are open. I love it!” —Judy L 

    Price: $10.99

    21. A Pulse LP set to enjoy the sounds from Pink Floyd’s 1994 Division Bell tour across Europe and the UK on vinyl.

    Promising review: “This has to be one of the best live performances of all time. Every song is played to perfection. I don't think a single note could be changed to make it any better. It comes with pictures of them during the Pulse tour. It even has the picture of David Gilmour in the rain, which was the only show that was cancelled due to weather.” —Amazon Customer 

    Price: $84.97

    22. And a Summer Infant changing pad with contoured walls, a non-skid bottom, and a security strap to keep your baby comfy and the pad secure.

    Promising review: “I use this on the top of a wide dresser that I am currently using as a changing table. It works wonderfully! The traction of the four feet keeps it very still, and the deep sides keep the baby secure and mommy from worrying too much. And there is additional safety option, as you can secure this to the wall with a safety strap. I’m very happy with this purchase. I would highly recommend to any parent using another piece of furniture instead of a change table.” —Ashley Williams 

    Price: $19.88
