    Promising Review: "I usually avoid buying one-use kitchen products but we eat avocados all the time so I finally gave in. This tool is amazing! I am mad I waited this long to buy it. The cutter and pitter work great — the slicer works wonderfully about 80% of the time (when it's overripe it is hard to slice). The tool is really thin so it fits well in my small appliance drawer and it washes really easily. If you eat a lot of avocados do not hesitate to buy this tool — it's worth every single penny." —CaraDawn

I purchased to use while in Key West for an iPhone6, iPhone6 plus, and Galaxy S6 edge and it fits perfectly for each phone; being a little more snug with the iPhone6 plus. It is completely waterproof, and takes great photos and video through the case – but you have to press record prior to submerging the case underwater. My family went snorkeling, and kept the case with the phone inside submerged almost the entire time, and had no issues with leakage. My family and I got stopped numerous times being asked where we purchased this product. Perfect even if just on the beach and you do not want to get sand or sunscreen on your phone, and want to still take photos/text/browse the internet. I will be purchasing this for everyone in my family, as it has become a travel must have!" —Jennifer Roman

But the scrubber motivates her to wash all of the germs away. And it fits her hand perfectly. I thought maybe the scrubbies would be a bit rough, but she loves them.

    amazon.com

    The headphones feature ErgoFit earbuds that conform to your ears.

    Promising Review: "As a musician, I know a little about sound. For the price, these are great for the gym or everyday listening. No they don't compare to my Bose headphones. But I only use them at home or on the plane. For the gym, these work great and if they go bad, as a lot of earbuds do, they're a cheap replacement. The mids and bass are very good and they stay put in the ear. They also include three different covers to fit your ear. They’re a great deal!” —Lee

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    24. A Wet Brush so you can easily detangle the locks of your other half, even if your closest friend happens to be Rapunzel.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "Amazing before and after on both my daughters! I've only used a spray bottle to dampen hair, and the brush practically glides through the hair with little to no effort! My girls don't fight me to brush each day – before this brush, it was a battle to comb or pick because of the pulling. I definitely recommend and will purchase again. I also use on my hair when it becomes super tangled at night." –Charity Williams

    28. And a journal which'll keep your fave company on the nights sleeplessness pays them a visit.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: “I ADORE this journal. It comes with all sorts of different writing prompts to transform your restlessness to productivity. You write the date, time, and either respond to prompts such as 'describe the taste of regret.' There are also fill-in-the-blank pages with your own thoughts. It's a great mix of the two. It's great for someone who already keeps a journal and is looking for a unique way to voice their late-night thoughts, or someone with writerly inclinations, at least. The blank pages are a calling for some, and a turn-off for others." —Beth
