    1. A tube of Glossier Skywash — a liquid-to-powder matte eyeshadow that'll be an absolute breeze to apply when you're running late for work in the morning. The results? Seriously GORGEOUS.

    2. A whimsical dog lamp sure to spark up a conversation and make you feel like you're living in 2030.

    3. A mochi ice cream kit for trying your hand at making the sweet and chewy treat from scratch. You can share the delicious results with your friends and family...or not.

    4. A 2-in-1 straightener and curling iron for an easy way to get a professional-looking hairstyle at home. We stan a styling tool that can pull double duty like a champ.

    5. A Skinfood egg white mask that'll help to dislodge excess sebum and minimize the appearance of pores. It'll also help remove dead skin cells along with blackheads, leaving your face feeling fresh and clean.

    6. A leopard print one-piece swimsuit you should take the plunge and buy for your upcoming tropical vacation.

    7. Solar-powered LED wind chimes to brighten up your porch in rain or shine.

    8. Fancy-looking hair clips for making it seem like you spent a lot of time on your 'do (when in fact it's just a messy bun plus a couple of these).

    9. An Instax smartphone printer that'll let you take as many pictures as you want and pick out the very best ones to print out. Plus, you can print multiple copies of the same picture so everyone can get one. It's perfect for parties!

    10. A pair of colorful '90s-inspired Teva sandals, because it's never too early to stock up warm weather shoes.

    11. Escape the Crate — a bi-monthly subscription box containing an escape room game you can play anytime, anywhere, and with anyone. It's challenging enough to take at least an hour to solve but not so difficult that you'll feel stumped.

    12. A set of dog earrings so cute, they'll make you say, "~Howl~ I live without these?!"

    13. The One with All the Recipes: An Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Friends for whipping up meals even Monica would approve of. You'll find dishes like "Engagement Ring Lasagna" — the ring is optional, of course.

    14. Frozen sheet masks that'll not only make for ~cool~ selfies but will also make your skin feel amazing. Each one has a different formula, and you'll love ~Olaf~ them.

    15. A Baby Yoda "protect, attack, snack" mug for anyone who also basically shares the same daily routine.

    16. A pair of wedge sneakers you'll get tons of wear out of because they're so darn comfy and sleek.

    17. A koozie any Clueless fan will Cher-ish forever.

    18. A hexagon crystal phone grip cap that's like jewelry for your device. Heck, you won't even need to wear rings when you have this in your hand.

    19. A pun-tastic tote bag that'll be a sensible purchase for any Janeite.

    20. A pair of oversized sunnies so you can look incredibly chic while people watching.

    21. An adorable coloring book for anyone whose greatest loves in life are coffee and animals.

    22. A BTS enamel pin featuring each member's solo tracks — just because the Love Yourself era is over doesn't mean you can't treat yourself!

    23. A pack of Harry Potter playing cards both wizards and muggles will ~wand~.

    24. A classic AllSaints leather jacket, because we are approaching prime leather jacket weather and you'll be wearing this versatile piece non-stop. Plus, it'll never go out of style so you can bring it back out season after season.

    25. A DIY bulletin board kit so you can collect all your used wine corks and turn them into a useful and sentimental piece of decor.

    26. A stunning Cinderella storybook journal with an embossed cover and a golden latch perfect for documenting all your treasured memories.
