Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An all-natural coffee scrub so you can literally shed a layer of your old skin in the new year. It's both exfoliating and moisturizing (thanks to natural oils in the formula) and will leave your skin soft and silky smooth.


    Promising review: "This scrub leaves your body feeling like velvet for days. It's a hassle and a little messy and it takes an awkward five to ten minutes letting it soak in, but it's amazing and so nourishing." —Marija Heibel

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    2. A pack of macaron-colored gel-ink pens that'll make taking notes or journaling a sweet experience.


    Promising review: "These are by far my favorite pens and that says a lot coming from me. I have a love affair with office supplies, especially pens. These work great, look great, and feel great in the hand. Highly recommend." —Amazon Customer

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $8.50.

    3. A gratitude journal for starting off and finishing your day with self-reflection, mindfulness exercises, and thankfulness. The pretty cover is just a delightful bonus.

    Promising review: "I started my miracle morning practice and though I have tons of journals, I wanted to develop a habit of a gratitude journal. I happened upon this diamond while looking for one. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have a morning and evening reflection. Durable, beautiful pages, and just like the pictures shown. I love everything about this. So glad I purchased." —Amie Brunagan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.12.

    4. A pair of touchscreen leather gloves with a cashmere/wool lining you won't want to take off. And you won't have to — because you can text with these on!

    Promising review: "Love, love, love these gloves! They work amazing and I have gotten so many compliments on them. They are warm and work awesome with my phone. As someone who uses their left hand more than their right for texting, I was a bit concerned that the gloves would just have touch screen ability with the right hand. Both gloves have three fingers that work with touch screen. Thumb, index, and middle for both gloves." —rcollins

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and seven colors).

    5. A box of fragrant bath bombs so you can finally get some R&R after a very stressful holiday season.


    Promising review: "These are beautifully packaged, dissolve quickly and completely, and do not leave any residue. They softened my skin and have a lovely scent that adds to the relaxation of the bath. I enjoyed them!" —Sonja

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $17.99.

    6. An adorable sloth tumbler that'll encourage you to take it easy and drink more water. It's insulated so it'll keep your beverages hot or cold for hours.

    This 16-ounce tumbler is made of durable, BPA-free Tritan plastic and is microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Great mug, tight-sealing lid, never leaks. Microwave-safe, which is great for when you have to reheat your coffee because your coworkers won’t leave you alone for five minutes." —calimeli

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    7. A pack of super food sheet masks for treating yourself to an inexpensive yet effective at-home facial. Yay for self-care!


    Promising review: "They seem extra hydrating (which is nice, since I live in the desert) due to the amount of product on them. They thankfully don't smell like what they say (I was nervous about some, lol), but instead have a nice, clean fragrance. These are very refreshing, and also stay in place very well. Will be ordering more!" —Andrea

    Get a 16-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A magical (and helpful) guide to party planning for anyone who loves Disney and hosting. All your future gatherings will be positively enchanting.


    You'll find recipes like Ariel’s Ocean Toast, Simba’s Charcuterie Board, Elsa’s Eggnog and more Disney-themed dishes, drinks, and desserts.

    Promising review: "It is well-made, well-written, and has excellent photos. I bought it as a gift, but just had to read the whole thing before giving it away!" —Isabella Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    9. A velvet lounge set so you can feel fancy even on your day off at home. (But honestly, this is so cute you can wear it out!)


    Promising review: "Love this little outfit. I feel like it can be worn as pajamas or just a super casual day outfit if accessorized right. Looks just like the pictures. I also love that it’s not cheeky!" —April

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    10. A hand-warming clay mug that'll not only look stunning on your desk but will also keep your finger tips toasty.


    Promising review: "They are so pretty. I bought one for myself and one as a gift. November in WNY gets cold and it's so nice to be able to warm your hands with a delicious mug of hot tea. If the liquid is too hot to hold like a hand-warmer, then just hold the outer curve almost like you would a regular mug until it cools enough. I love that they come in left- or right-handed. My left-handed friends are grateful that they have a mug special for them! Such beautiful earthy colors and no two are quite alike." —C. Close

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95 (available in left- and right-handed versions)

    11. A monstera leaf enamel pin perfect for jazzing up a canvas tote or denim jacket.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $6 (available in six colors).

    13. Cloud-shaped tea bags so pretty, you'll be sad to use them. But then you'll be happy again when you find out how delicious they are.

    Get a 10-pack from BrinDAromes on Etsy for $20.50.

    14. A Himalayan salt lamp that'll give your room just the right amount of soft, cozy lighting. Yeah, it gets dark at 4 p.m. but you won't even notice.

    This lamp can be dimmed as well.

    Promising review: "I love this look! It’s better to have the rocks in glass than the traditional salt lamp. The traditional rock lamps flake salt off and the rocks, being in glass, leave no mess on the table." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. A gold flake top coat for adding a fancy touch to a simple manicure.


    Promising review: "I am so in love with this polish! It looks so pretty on top of so many colors. I use it so much I'll have to get a new bottle soon. If you love nail polish as much as I do, this is a must for your collection!" —Queen Bee 830

    Get it from Amazon for $13.73.

    16. A hyaluronic acid toner to hydrate your complexion from the inside out.


    FYI, hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding ingredient which can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! Bonus: this toner is vegan.

    Promising review: "Hyaluronic acid, as far as I'm concerned, is a must for your beauty regimen. This is a nice balancing and moisturizing toner, non-greasy, leaves skin dewy (and who doesn't want dewy), and it doesn't hurt that it's environmentally friendly. It's a perfect base before toner and makeup." —Chris Bailey-Rugg

    Get it from Amazon for $18.40.

    17. A roll-neck dress so you can stay warm while looking like a snack. Plus, there are pockets!,

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this sweater. Fits great and feels nice and soft. Looks great with leggings, jeans, or boots. The pockets give it a nice chic look." —Chanel

    Get it from Amazon for $24.55+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    18. A ball-shaped soap that'll be satisfying to look at and even more satisfying to use. It has a light, clean scent and will be gentle on your hands and body.

    The Grommet

    It's made by one of Japan’s oldest soap makers.

    Promising review: "Bought a few of these for Christmas hostess gifts and they are a huge hit. Personally, I love the light fragrance and how it fits in the palm of your hand." —Susan

    Get it from The Grommet for $6.

    19. A colorful ceramic bowl for making the leftover pasta from a couple nights ago feel like a gourmet lunch.

    Urban Outfitters

    It's dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

    Promising review: "I love these bowls so much! Everyone at work always compliments them and asks about them. They're very durable and super cute." —gabbi7

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10 (available in four designs).

    20. A long-lasting NYX liquid eyeliner with a precise felt tip to make getting matching wings a breeze.


    Promising review: "You wouldn't expect the quality of this product by the price. It's great, goes on smooth, lasts all day, and doesn't dry up after a week. I wanted to be able to wear winged liner forever but couldn't ever get it to apply without making a huge mess until I realized my problem was the product I was using. NYX changed my eyeliner game!" —Lori Marion

    Get it from Amazon for $6.29.

    21. A dainty earring set you'll wear on repeat, because they go with pretty much every outfit. In fact, you can mix and match them or wear multiple pairs together!


    Promising review: "Best purchase of the year! These tiny earrings are so dainty and beautiful in person. I'm considering buying a second set as a backup." —SammieJ

    Get five pairs from Anthropologie for $29.95 (available in three styles).

    22. A pair of mismatched (but matching) unicorn socks that'll bring you so much joy when you put them on in the morning.

    ManyMornings / Etsy

    Get it from ManyMornings on Etsy for $11.99 (available in three sizes).
