    1. A precious Skip Hop crib soother that’ll lull your baby to sleep with soft nature sounds and songs. It can also be used as a night-light.

    Promising review: “We love this sound machine. We've used it since our twins came home from the hospital. We use the heartbeat sound. I think it's very soothing to newborns, and it's abstract enough that it isn't distracting for us. I love that it has volume options and brightness options for the light, as well. But we prefer no light. Plus it's so cute!” —Liz

    Price: $39.95 (also available in elephant shape)

    2. A vintage-style cocktail dress with a fabulous bow neckline and lace-up back sure to steal the show at your next function.

    Promising review: “I love that the dress is very fresh and silky smooth! I'm happy the measurements that I made on myself matched up with the size that I got. I’m so excited to wear it this summer! I ordered a size large and I'm 5’5” tall, weigh 160 lbs., and I wear a 34DD. It fit perfectly!” —Priscilla Trujillo

    Price: $19.66+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and in 44 colors/prints)

    3. A bottle of organic Sky Organics Castor Oil you can use on your hair, lashes, or skin, or to mix into your DIY skin-care products.

    Promising review: “I originally bought this to help my lashes grow back after using a lash-enhancing serum that caused them to all fall out. My lashes grew back very quickly once I began using this product. And my lashes did return to their normal length after a couple weeks of use. I've also been using this on my skin every night, which is where I have experienced the most benefit. I apply a thin layer on my forehead, eye area, lips, and chin. It has made my skin soft and smooth, and my complexion brighter. I am totally a believer in castor oil as an effective beauty product!” —Emily Walz

    Price: $15.15

    4. A copy of Position of the Day to really mix up your bedroom activities every day of the YEAR.

    The book includes 366 positions.

    Promising review: “I purchased two of these just for fun gag gifts for two of my friends who were getting married to pack on their wedding nights. Some of the pages are pretty funny. There's a position for every day of the year. And I made sure to mark the pages that celebrated my birthday and other important dates so they would always remember!” —Mark 

    Price: $7.96

    5. A fab side-button skirt that just may become your new fave.

    Promising review: “I normally wear a size medium or 5/6. But after reading the reviews for this skirt, I decided to go with a size large. And I’m glad I did because the large fits perfectly. So it might be a good idea to go one size up. My waist measurement is 29” and I'm 5'6". The skirt is a good length too. There are pleats in the fabric that you may want to iron. And the buttons on the side and super cute. Plus, it has pockets!” —Matsumoto

    Price: $15.90+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and in five colors)

    6. A Moonjar money box for helping teach your children the importance of saving money and maintaining healthy practices.

    Promising review: “We got this bank for our 4-year-old son to teach him about money when he receives his weekly allowance. He gets $1 in quarters for feeding the dog, helping put away laundry, and a couple additional small chores. And he puts a quarter in each section, then chooses where the fourth quarter goes. He looks forward to allowance day every week. And he runs to his bank with his quarters. I’d highly recommend it for parents of 4- to 6-year-olds.” —M. Blevins 

    Price: $18.99

    7. A set of LifeStraws that'll filter water and make it drinkable — great to have on hand while camping and hiking or during emergency situations.

    The set includes two straws, which are are BPA-free and chemical-free.

    Promising review: “As soon as I got this thing in the mail I went straight to the nastiest, most contaminated thing I could find. There just happened to be a sink full of soaking dishes that worked just fine. I couldn’t taste a thing. I even spit some of the water out and it was nice and clear. Im going hiking soon and going to test it on some stagnant water when we find it. I've given instructions to lower this rating down to one star IF I die.” —Nicholas Marksberry

    Price: $39.95

    8. A lighted vanity mirror with 10X magnification, a 360-degree swivel joint, and a suction cup you can use to mount the mirror to any smooth, flat surface.,

Promising review: “I’ve always wanted one of these! And it's crazy how well it works. The light is really bright and acts as if it's natural light, so you can really see any errors in your makeup. I take my makeup off and do my skin-care routine with this. It's nice to not have to stand at the sink in the bathroom. I can sit at my desk instead and get caught up on the news. I love it!” —Vivian Loves Shopping 

    Price: $20.99

    9. A fun patterned flowy dress to shake up your summer wardrobe in the cutest way.


Promising review: “This dress is the most comfortable that I've ever owned! It is lightweight and stretchy. And the best part: It has pockets! I'm large in the chest (38DDD), and the XL was a nice fit. It was flowy except in my chest, because of my larger bust. But there was plenty of room in the chest, too. I've washed and worn it several times, and it's held up very well. The colors are bright and the fabric hasn't pilled. I’m very happy with my purchase and will probably buy other patterns, too!” —Lynchburg Mama 

    Price: $15.99 (available in sizes S-XL and six colors)

    10. A set of Love-Kankei floating shelves for a elegant way to store items in your kitchen, bedroom, or anywhere else in your home.

    The set includes two shelves.

    Promising review: “These are very cute, rustic wood shelves. They look perfect above my TV. The shelves are very thin and narrow, though. But they are perfect for tiny knickknacks. Also, I recommend to use smaller screws for the wall than the ones provided.” —Amazon Customer 

    Price: $42.99 

    11. A copy of Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album Deluxe so you can enjoy the timeless sounds of John Coltrane.

    Promising review: “This is a great introduction to Coltrane. If I were going to recommend a 'first' album of Coltrane, this would be it. It’s easy to listen to the first time and deepens with every listen, after. Keep in mind this isn't a finished product. It was a one-day session that should have ended up as a release contemporary with his other early solo work. Too bad the world had to wait so long to hear it.” —C Beltran

    Price: $15.49+

    12. A lightweight T-shirt dress you can dress up or down for endless looks.

    Promising review: “The dress fit well, was a good length, and washed and dried well. It was so comfortable. And the style is simple enough to take from casual, to work, to evening with accessories.” —Malleybean 

    Price: $18 (available in sizes XS-2XL and in seven colors)

    13. A bottle of Heilala Vanilla Pure Vanilla Bean Paste for adding a yummy kick of flavor to your dessert recipes.

    Promising review: “I love that the first ingredient in this paste is vanilla bean extract. Other bean pastes I looked for on Amazon had sugar as their first ingredient. Even though this is a bit pricey, other brands that cost less or similar have sugar as their first ingredient. Might as well pay for more vanilla instead of sugar! I used this for creme brulee, and it provided lots of bean specks in my custard. Yummm!” —Super Berry 

    Price: $14.22

    14. A striped off-the-shoulder shirt with bell sleeves to give your wardrobe some serious attitude.

    Promising review: “I love this top! I can’t wait to wear it. I highly recommend it. The material is nice and fits well. And it just feels good to wear it! I’m 5’6”, 145 lbs, and I bought a medium. And I might have been able to get away with a small. I love IT!” —Toni

    Price: $6.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and 18 colors/prints)

    15. A copy of Game of Thrones: The Complete Seasons so you can immerse youreself in the dramatic battle for the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.


Promising review: “This was a substantial investment on my part, but since everyone in my house is in love with this series, it will make a very nice Christmas gift. The set comes with 30 discs with all of the episodes, plus a digital download code for watching the series on mobile devices. I looked at the extra material available with the series and it looks like I am going to be busy watching a lot of new material!” —Paul Kloves 

Price: $92.97+ 

    16. A loose-fitting tie-front blouse that’ll have you looking oh-so casual chic.,

    Promising review: "This shirt is very comfortable. And it is slightly oversized. I’d recommend you order your usual size. There will be plenty of room and the buttons are functional. Plus, the shirt is breastfeeding-friendly. I loved it so much I ordered it in four colors!” —C. Williams 

    Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in nine colors)

    17. An AirHeads variety box so you will NEVER be without the nostalgic sweet treat again.

    The box includes 90 individually wrapped AirHeads (which are peanut-free and gluten-free).

    Promising review: “I had forgotten about these wonderful little bars of chewy goodness. I saw one the other day, and it brought tears to my eyes. They were my mom’s favorite. My mom is gone now. But I bought these in her honor. When they arrived the whole house flocked to the box. These treats are great!” —Annette Beane 

    Price: $12.32

    18. A copy of Come as You Are for taking your sex life to amazing new heights.

    Promising review: “This book is an eye opener for any woman. There is bound to be an least one groundbreaking idea in it that you have never considered about yourself. I had to start taking notes about what pages I wanted to come back to and were profound for me. I intend to give it at least a second read because you gain understanding with every read.” —Ali

Price: $12.25

    19. A lovely moon lamp — with a USB charging plug — to light up your night in the most magical way.

    The night-light is made by a 3D printer with eco-friendly materials and includes a rechargeable battery. 

    Promising review: “This lamp is absolutely gorgeous! It works just as described. I’ve had mine on all night on a single charge. If anything ever happens to it, I’ll buy this exact one, again. It’s a good balance between quality and cost. Definitely go with the 3D printed ones.” —M. Carter 

    Price: $16.99+ (available in five styles)

    20. A gorgeous distressed rug, which’ll add a beautiful muted pop of color to your space.

    Promising review: “I bought this rug to cover part of my concrete patio. The colors are hard to describe. They are intense but also muted, with shades of primarily grey with teal, pink, and bits of orange. The colors don't jump out at you. I bought teal chair cushions and am looking for some pink accents. The rug appears to be well-made and it feels nice underfoot. My dog enjoys napping on it. So I'm glad I made this purchase, and so is he.” —LucyLue 

Price: $24.99+ (available in seven sizes and four colors)
