    1. A pack of facial blotting papers to keep your complexion shine-free on sweaty days.

    Each pack contains 100 sheets.

    Promising review: "I just recently found these DHC blotting papers, and I have to say that I love them! They don't rip/tear easily, they absorb oil, and leave makeup intact. Has definitely helped improve my end of day appearance over not using them. I never want to be without these again!" —JaiPhxDuv

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $15.

    2. A flowy wrap skirt for a great way to show off that tan you've been working on.

    Promising review: "The waist ties make it adjustable so no issues with the waist gapping. Great fit. Looks just like the photo. Color is pretty. Lightweight material, so perfect for tropical vacations (which is why I wanted it)." —S. Lonni

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and four colors).

    3. A portable handheld misting fan — you'll be blown away by how well it works.

    It has a 20-ml water tank, three fan speeds, and two spray settings. The battery is rechargeable and can last around two to six hours.

    Promising review: "Great product! Worked amazingly on a hot day waiting in lines at Disneyland! I had to share the air with all my friends, haha. The color is true to the photos so it's pretty to look at. It functions great with its multiple wind settings, and the mist comes out nicely, uniform and strong. The water container on top where the mist comes from seals pretty tightly so even when jostling around in my backpack, it never leaked. It's a bit bulkier than your traditional mobile mister/fan but that's the price you pay for more air and more mist. It fits nicely in my mini-back I took to Disneyland. And it's easy to hold. It's also very light. I recommend!" —Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four colors).

    4. An iPhone lens kit so you don't have to lug around your DSLR to get a couple of cool shots.

    It comes with a fish-eye lens for 180-degree shots with strong visual distortion, a macro lens for extreme close-up photography, and a wide angle (0.67X) lens for architectural, interior, and landscape photography.

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful product. Very surprised at the quality for the price. Happy with our choice." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    5. A sea salt spray to create perfectly textured (but still touchable) mermaid hair, even when you're on land.

    Promising review: "Ideal low maintenance product. Hop out of the pool or off the beach, spray a little and go. Great texture, non-greasy, and air dries perfectly. The travel size lasts an incredibly long time and has been in my bag since last summer. Bonus: it smells great." —MaRitchen

    Get it from Urban Outfitters or Sephora for $8+ (available in two sizes).

    6. A not-so-basic (nay, majestic) beach blanket for anyone who's proud to be a basic bitch.

    Get it from Firebox for $21.09.

    7. An amethyst crystal air plant — a pretty and low-maintenance desk buddy that'll lift your spirits.

    Simply mist the air plant once or twice a week and put it somewhere with a bit of indirect sunlight and good air circulation.

    Get it from AirFriend on Etsy for $18.

    8. A container of black pearl and gold gel eye patches reviewers say can help to depuff, brighten, and moisturize the under-eye area.,

    Promising review: "I swear by these eye pads! I bought a pack for myself after seeing them on a BuzzFeed list and loved them so much I bought a pack for each of my friends for the holidays. They are nice and cooling, moisturizing, and I notice a significant difference after using them. My under eyes look and feel less puffy! The perfect way to boost my mood when I’m not feeling my best. They also don’t dry out — I’ve had an open container with some left from August that are still in perfect condition." —Francesca

    9. A lace bralette you'll want to wear all the time because it's just so pretty and comfortable.

    Promising review: "It's so comfortable and easy to wear. No hassle with buttons or clips, you just put it on and bam, you're ready to go. The straps are thin and simple. Very cute and versatile piece." —joyce_su34

    10. A cooling gel mouse pad to help rescue your wrists from stress and strain. Plus, it'll be fun to poke at.

    Promising review: "This is so soft and squishy and comfy. I love it. I thought I'd need a new mouse for my wrist pain, but it turns out that this wrist rest is all I needed. It's a perfect size, and I love that it stays put on the desk once the plastic is removed from the back. It's also very pretty to look at." —L. Reid

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    11. A pair of beaded ball drop earrings for adding a pop of color to an all-black outfit.

    Promising review: "I wear all black for work so I wanted a big, bold earring, and these were perfect! I chose the blue, and they are so bright and a gorgeous blue color. They are a tad heavy but I'm used to big earrings so it doesn't bother me at all. I work in a retail setting and get multiple compliments every time I wear them! Love! Will be buying more colors!" —Rheanna

    Promising review: "Quality is amazing for the price! The fit is amazing, as well! The adjustable straps are such a bonus because it helps you fit the suit to your chest size perfectly. BUY THIS AND YOU WON'T REGRET IT!" —Alyssa J

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S–XL and nine colors).

    17. Or, a gingham bikini set that'll have you looking like a snack (a picnic snack, specifically).

    Promising review: "I bought a 2X hoping it wouldn’t be too big and it fits perfectly! It’s so comfortable and provides an awesome amount of support." —Olivia C.

    Get the set from Forever 21: the top for $7 and the bottom for $6 (available in sizes 0X–3X).

    18. A pack of hydrating face masks to treat yourself to while rewatching the first season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

    Promising review: "These are the masks that made me understand the sheet-mask fuss. I'm not going to pay over $1.50 for a regular-use mask, and several of the masks I've used in that price category have been pretty ho-hum. These have very thin clingy fabric and lots of essence that's never sticky — my favorite are the creamy ones like Ceramide and Manuka Honey, but they've all been mild, deeply moisturizing, and plumping. Regular use three to five times a week has contributed to my pores looking much smaller and my skin having a smooth bouncy texture. And they're dirt cheap!" —Kristin

    Get a 15-pack from Amazon for $14.63.

    19. A pair of nautical socks so cute, they may be ~over-whale-ming~.

    Get them from ModCloth for $9.

    22. A bottle of conditioning beard oil (formulated with sweet almond oil, olive oil, wheat germ oil, and apricot kernel oil) to nourish your beard and your skin.

    Get it from Asos for $9.50.

    23. A cotton pajama set so your old college T-shirt can officially retire.

    Promising review: "Very soft and comfy. I've washed it four to five times, and it is still true to size and holding up very well." —Pamela

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL).

    24. A transparent floral Instax album for the most aesthetically pleasing way to organize your instant film photos.

    It can hold up to 64 Instax photos with 32 single-pocket double-sided pages plus a pocket for displaying a photo at the front.

    Promising review: "I had looked at numerous stores in hopes of finding a cute, decently priced photo album for my mini Polaroids, but EVERYWHERE I looked either didn’t have anything that would hold them, or they looked like a wallet, or worse, they were the accordion-style ones. I’m so happy with this purchase! It’s super cute and small in size, but holds plenty of pictures! I love that it has a spot for a picture on the front, too! I can’t wait to order more of these in different colors!" —Mysharonnna

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $12.

    25. A copy of Crazy Rich Asians as a satisfying beach read about the glamorous lifestyle of Singapore's elite.

    Plus, you'd have something to compare to the movie, which is coming out in August.

    Promising review: "What a wild, exhilarating, wonderful tale of love and family dysfunction set in the most energetic cities on multiple continents. Add too much money and time and the mix of characters, and the story is off like a shot. Calling it a page-turner doesn't do justice to the richness (pun intended) and brilliance of the story. Wow, what an amazing first novel. I can't wait to revisit Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and the other locales so lovingly depicted." —John T. Raftis

    Get it from Amazon for $9.60.
