    1. A charming (and affordable!) area rug that'll immediately pull together any room in your home.

    Promising review: “I’m so very excited about this rug! We initially had a much more expensive West Elm rug in this space. But we got a puppy last fall and she ruined it. We were looking for a less expensive option and we decided on this one based on the great reviews. IT IS beautiful! I love it in our family room. She's already had a potty accident on it. It cleaned right up with Resolve. No stain at all.” —Kathleen 

    Price: $19.97+ (available in 16 sizes)

    2. A faux-wool oversized cardigan for keeping you cozy and looking fly as the temperatures begin to drop.

    The sweater comes in one size and typically fits sizes XS-L; it will fit oversized if you wear XS-M, and if you usually wear a large, it should be regular fit for you.

    Promising review: “I love everything about this sweater! I needed an oversized, loose sweater to wear with my knee-high boots, and I got exactly that. I'm 5 feet and about 114 lbs. The sweater is thick, warm, and the color is great.” —Biance 

    Price: $22.98+ (available in three colors)

    3. An acrylic stapler with a non-skid base that’ll add a little retro-inspired style to your desk.

    The stapler includes a 1,000-pack of staples.

    Price: $11.98

    4. A Foster sticky notes board, which includes a smartphone holder, you can use to keep important notes in full view.

    The board includes a glue strip you can use to attach it to your computer monitor. 

    Promising review: I love my sticky note memo board! I was able to attach it to my computer monitor with no issues. And after weeks of use, it still remains securely attached. The materials are sturdy feeling, with no bending or warping of any kind. I've got all my important reminders on it, which has been super helpful and keeps me from missing any important deadlines. I've also been able to write on it with a dry-erase marker, and then wipe it off with a tissue. Many of my coworkers have commented on how useful it seems, and have said they would be purchasing their own.” —Razorsharp77

    Price: $8.99+ (available in two styles)

    5. An octopus key holder so your keys will always be just a tentacle away.

    The key holder includes six hooks.

    Promising review: “I bought this as a gift for my brother and his new wife after they encountered an octopus in Hawaii. What was supposed to be a gag gift turned into a very nice key holder. It's heavy, quality-made, and they loved it. It is not a small piece!” —Lizzie 

    Price: $21.95

    6. A set of genius Hair Flair Curlformers to easily curl your hair without the damaging heat of a curling iron.,

    The set includes contains 40 salon-quality hair curlers: 20 blue hair curlers for clockwise curls and 20 green curlers for anti-clockwise curls. The set also comes with two styling hooks.

    Promising review: “These are the absolute best hair curlers EVER! We get so many compliments when my daughter has curled her hair with these — we have probably single-handedly contributed to about a dozen of your sales. Just put them in damp hair and either sleep on them or blow-dry your hair with the curlers in. Then remove them, and voila. Shirley Temple ringlet curls. They are so cute! These are great for kids in dance, too!” —Minnesota Momma

    Price: $53.99

    7. A pretty eyeshadow palette that’ll add 18 lovely shades to your makeup collection to create some stunning eye looks.

    The palette includes eight matte shades, six pressed pearl shades, three duo-chrome toppers, and one daring glitter shade.

    Promising review: “This eyeshadow palette really took my breath away. I’m used to my high-end eyeshadows. But these are very pigmented and easily blendable. I’d compare them to Morphe eyeshadows. They are definitely not as high-quality but they’re really good for their price.” —Gabriel Thomas 

    Price: $11

    8. A copy of The Day the Crayons Quit for a darling recap of the day Duncan’s crayons decided to go on strike.

    Promising review: "This is such a fun book! I have such a blast reading this to my son. The book teaches little ones the importance of sharing and playing fairly in such a funny way. It's fun to read this with different voices after a long day!” —Jennifer Doetsch

    Price: $10.99+

    9. A set of Batiste dry shampoos you can use between washes to absorb grease and dirt, refresh your 'do, or extend the life of your blowout just a little longer.,

    The set includes three cans of dry shampoo.

    Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE Batiste Dry Shampoo. It's the only brand I will use now. Ever since I had chemotherapy and my hair is growing back, I need to wash it more frequently. It is hard to get enough energy every single day to shower and wash my hair. So this is what I use in between hair washings. It works better than any other brand I have tried, and it is not that expensive. It smells wonderful. This would also be good for people who can’t shower right away after a surgical procedure for a few days or weeks. This is a great product at a great price.” —Ontimegirl 

Price: $14.80 (for a three-pack)

    10. A jar of Coffee Booster Coffee Creamer, which'll add a little extra flavor to your morning cup of coffee with the help of tasty ingredients like organic grass-fed ghee, all-natural coconut oil, and raw cacao powder.

    Promising review: “This stuff is amazing! I add a tablespoon to my coffee. I drink two cups a day! The fat in the mix keeps my hunger satisfied until lunch or after, even without eating breakfast. It's a must for a weight-conscious, coconut-loving coffee drinker! I'm on my second container and will be ordering again soon. I love this stuff!” —Cooper’s Mom

    Price: $19.99+ (available in four flavors)

    11. A gorgeous Harry Potter throw for letting everyone know which EPIC house you’re apart of.,

    Promising review: “I bought this as a birthday present for a friend, and he absolutely loved it! It was much bigger than I expected, and the details are excellent. It's soft. And it would even work as a wall tapestry. The colors are vivid and the fringe on the edges give it a nice touch. It’s totally worth the price!” —Jenn

    Price: $25.99+ (available in seven styles)

    12. A chic pair of faux-leather boots that feature an elastic insert inside the boot for some extra stretch.

    Promising review: “I purchased two pairs of these boots and they are great! They are very roomy, they are wide from the front, and warm inside. I'm a size 8.5 and purchased a size 9. I wish I would have ordered an 8.5, seeing that they do come wide and feel a tiny bit big. I recommend these boots. I will definitely purchase them again!” —Rosa 

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 12 colors)

    13. A jar of Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter, formulated with shea butter and vitamin E, for moisturizing your belly before and after pregnancy.

    Promising review: “I love this belly butter. I’ve used it every day since week 20 and I have no stretch marks! I did not use it on my hips and thighs, and I do have some stretch marks there. I actually still use it daily, even though I already had my baby, because it is so moisturizing. It also helped with the belly itching I had during my pregnancy. And it does not have a scent, which is great for those sensitive to fragrance. I would definitely recommend it for all pregnant mamas.” —Gbigs

    Price: $11.69

    14. A bag of Viva Naturals Organic Chia Seeds, which you can add to your favorite food and drinks for a boost of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, antioxidants, and essential vitamins and minerals.

    Promising review: “I love the health benefits of these chia seeds. They add volume to my homemade pudding and they keep me full. What I do is take 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 scoop of chocolate protein, 3/4 cup almond milk, a few drops of stevia, and blend everything together. I let it sit in the refrigerator for four hours or overnight, and it makes a great healthy snack.” —KB

    Price: $6.65+ (available in two sizes)

    15. A copy of Marie Claire for keeping you updated on the latest in culture, style, and entertainment.

    Price: $10 for a one-year subscription

    16. A fabulous bamboo cheese board set with a slide-out drawer to make your next dinner party oh-so fabulous.,

    The set includes the drawer and four cutting knives. 

    Promising review: “I finally had the opportunity to use this last weekend. It's so cool and amazing. I was able to place three different types of crackers, and two small containers of dip, cheese squares, and salami on the top area. Trust me. It's pretty spacious. The bamboo feels really sturdy. And when it came time to wash it, I used very little water and dried it off using paper towels. I recommend this product if you love to host parties or if you just simply enjoy placing some cheese and crackers out to munch on.” —Lizbeth Gallegos 

    Price: $54.99

    17. A pretty pair of velvet pillow covers that’ll dress up your favorite couch or armchair.

    The set includes two pillows.

    Promising review: “These are beautiful! I just received them in the mail and put them on two throw pillows that came with our new love seat, but didn’t match the decor. I decided I’d try to find covers for them rather than buy all new pillows. And I’m glad I did. These look so nice and are super soft. Mine had no zipper issues at all, even with me stuffing the throw pillows in there and filling them very full. The color Is true to how it looks on the website pictures.” —Katie 

    Price: $11.99+ (available in three sizes and 28 colors)

    18. A copy of Cry Pretty so you can get into the sounds of Carrie Underwood’s latest chart-topping project.

    19. A Krups Electric Coffee Grinder, which’ll grind up to 3 ounces of coffee beans in less than 10 seconds.

    The grinder features stainless steel blades that can also be used for grinding spices, herbs, nuts, and grains. It also includes a two-year warranty.

    Promising review: “This works extremely well. I have ground several pounds of coffee, so far. Some for a drip maker I use at work, and a lot for my French press here at home. It’s simple to use. You just need to be careful when you want to take out the grounds. You must flip the unit upside down and pull the clear cup. I spilled it a few times at the beginning. It helps if you have a small paint brush to clean out the grounds that get stuck on the inside due to the coffee oils.” —MI Joe 

    Price: $15.96

    20. A copy of 21 Lessons for the 21st Century for a deep dive into some of society's most pressing issues, from technological to political.

    Promising review: “Amid the chaos, division, and animosity of our current state of the world, here lies a challenge to call bullshit on the lies we tell ourselves, the lies we take as societal norms, and the lies that formulate the history that have led us to this point. Harari continues to challenge us to shake off the fictional stories as he began in Sapiens and followed in Homo Deus.” —Kindle Customer

    Price: $13.99+
