We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

1. A pair of cute and functional pot grippers that look even more delicious than the real pasta you're serving for dinner. They're worth every ~penne~... or rather, farfalle.

Promising review: "Greatest little kitchen helpers since sliced bread! While that might be a slight exaggeration, they really have become my favorite pot holders. Small enough to stick in your gadget drawer, but plenty large enough to use on your largest, heaviest pots and pans. Great for lids that have handles that get hot. I keep one on those lids during the whole time I'm cooking. You could also leave them on glass items used in the microwave. Very handy. And they're cute!" —Southern Gal

Get them from Amazon for $14.95.

2. A yummy-smelling candle perfect for people who can't get up without the prospect of having a bowl of Froot Loops. (Yes, it actually smells like the cereal.)

This three-wick candle comes with the spoon and glass bowl! You could use them to eat some real cereal after finishing the candle.

Promising review: "I could smell it even before it was out of the box! Huge candle, three wicks, great weight, and so realistic! Packed immensely safe with plenty of foam and bubble wrap. Absolutely worth the price!" —Marienne Valencia

Get it from CandlelitDesserts on Etsy for $25.


4. A salt and pepper shaker set that's truly the ~jam~. Side effects of owning this include feeling serious breakfast cravings all day.

Promising review: "Set arrived quickly, in excellent condition/quality and as pictured/described. Absolutely adorable, and a cute addition to my displayed collection." —A.R.

Get it from Amazon for $10.99 or from Wayfair or Walmart for $21.99.

5. A sushi pushpin set you'll be tempted to take a bite out of. It'll make organizing the bulletin board ~roe-lly~ fun.

Promising review: "Omigosh, this is the cutest thing ever! Pushpins that look like sushi! It has just the right amount of pushpins to make it look realistic. It makes such a charming addition to my desk, and now I have pushpins handy if I need them. I just need to make sure I don't lose any of the pins, or the 'rice' would show through. The 'rice' part even has a rice pattern on it, though, so even with all the pushpins taken out, it still looks pretty realistic." —T. Thomas

Get it from Amazon for $15.92.

6. A box of luxurious bath truffles made with cocoa butter. You'll love them almost as much as edible chocolate truffles. Almost.

The scents include rose, grapefruit, lavender, rosemary, citrus, and mocha! Crumble one under running water to release a deliciously smooth and fragrant soak.

Promising review: "I love chocolate and hot baths, so how could I resist? This cute box arrived looking edible (careful kids!) but fizzed into a great bath. I was concerned as bits of herbs were floating around in my tub, but there was no problem with a ring or residue. This product was great on my sensitive/eczema skin, leaving it feeling hydrated and soft even in the worst of cold winter." —Ranger1

Get them from Uncommon Goods for $32.


8. A tasty-looking USB flash drive likely to exacerbate a sweet tooth. The cap "breaks off" like a real piece of chocolate!

This flash drive has 8 GB of memory!

Promising review: "This flash drive is so darn cute. My laptop is finicky about recognizing USBs for some reason, but I don't get any problems when I use this one. I would highly recommend this as a gift for any college student — or for yourself!" —A.

Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in 11 designs and two sizes).

10. A sleeping mask that'll have your face looking fresh and smooth like a perfectly ripened mango.

11. A strawberry and whipped cream cupcake bubble bath bomb for a deliciously fragrant and foamy soak.

The "icing" turns into a bubble bath when held under running water, while the "cake" is a traditional bath bomb that gives the water color and fragrance.

Get it from Forever 21 for $7.


13. A set of miniature fast food erasers much too cute to use. They're better suited for furnishing an elaborate doll house.

Promising review: "These are super cute little food erasers. I keep them on my desk at work. People love them." —Passthepasta

Get them from Paper Source for $7.95 or Amazon for $7.76.

14. A refreshing and pigmented gel tint that'll color your lips like real ice pops do — but much more evenly.,

Promising review: "Great product! Has a great stain and smells really good. So adorable. Easy to apply. Would buy again!" —Chezzie

Get it from Amazon for $8.96+ (available in six colors).


18. A hydrating caramel lip balm as sweet and addictive as the candy without the stickiness.

Facebook: fresh

Promising review: "Super cushiony texture that glides onto lips like velvet. It feels so amazing and soft on the lips and is very nourishing. My new favorite lip balm. The pot is pretty big and a little goes a long way. I also love the smell and color — it feels very luxurious and doesn't smell too sweet. Love this!" —beautyjunkie088

Get it from Sephora for $18.

19. A pair of bread slippers that'll help take a ~loaf~ off your tired feet after a long day.

Get it from Amazon for $17+ (available in two sizes and four designs).


20. A burrito case (with guac-like green lining) to keep your messy pens and electronic cables ~under wraps~. At least one person will think you got it from Taco Bell.

Promising review: "Anyone who sees this in class thinks I have an actual burrito on my desk. I use it as a pencil bag, and it holds about eight pens and pencils in the elastic bands, and I put my erasers in the little mesh pouch. Love it!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $18, Urban Outfitters for $20, or Walmart for $25.63.

22. A notepad shaped like a stick of butter for ~spreading~ a few memos around the office.

Promising review: "Now this is just cool! The first thing my mom said when I showed it to her was, 'They sent you butter in the mail??' On the outside, it is just that realistic, which is what really makes it a fun addition to your desk. Really a nice item for yourself or as a gift." —Cyrus Webb

Get it from Amazon for $6.59 or Barnes and Noble for $6.44.

23. A whimsical whisk sure to get a bunny's vote of approval. Just make sure you don't get ~carrot~ away and accidentally put it in a stew or something.

Promising review: "I bought this for myself and a friend on a lightning deal, and we were both thrilled with the quality! Not only is it cute, it works really well and is dishwasher safe." —Emma Criswell

Get it from Amazon for $15.


24. A grapefruit straw clutch for adding a ~slice~ of summer to any outfit. Take it with you when you escape to the tropics this winter!

Or, if you live in Australia (or anywhere in the southern hemisphere), you can use it ASAP. Lucky you!

Get it from Asos for $19.

25. A pair of PB&J keychains so you can gift one to your BFF. Your other friends may get ~jelly~, but you can't be ~buttered~ with pleasing everyone.

Promising review: "I decided to get these for my boyfriend and I. Since high school, we were the best of friends and decided to date after high school, and our nicknames for each other were PB&J. I came across these, and I thought they were adorable. And in fact, they are! Well-made and excellent attention to detail. I love this pair!" —Lizbeth*

Get them from Amazon for $25.

26. A moisturizing hand milk that'll make you say, "This shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!"

Thank you, Gwen Stefani, for teaching me how to spell bananas. I'm eternally grateful.

Promising review: "What a cute little product! Looks just like a little banana, only it's hand lotion. Smells great, like banana candy! My favorite part is that the hand lotion leaves my hands feeling moisturized, and NOT greasy like so many other hand lotions." —shylee

Get it from Amazon for $9.99, Soko Glam for $10, or Jet for $6.59.


30. A hamburger backpack Steven Universe would approve of. Give yourself a ~patty~ on the back for finding this gem!

Promising review: "Bought this for a family member, and it was the perfect gift. The patty, tomato, cheese all have zippers, and it's very spacious inside for a 15-inch laptop, some binders, etc. The straps are a little on the thin side, so I don't recommend over-packing this or for prolonged wear at like a theme park or something. The build quality is pretty solid; I've seen it being tossed in and out of the car, dragged across the floor, and there's hardly a scuff. 10/10 would buy again." —Nick

Get it from Amazon for $32.98 or Walmart for $38.99.

31. A pair of sushi socks that'll ~maki~ any outfit a little more ~raw-some~.

Get them from ModCloth for $12.99 (available in three designs), Amazon for $12.63 (available in six designs), or The Grommet for $12.95 (available in four designs).


33. A cushy mat your furry friends can spread out on. It's ~avo-cato~ toast!

Please don't hate me for that joke. 🐱

Promising review: "My cat took to the toast right away — she totally knew it was hers! It's very cute and actually quite soft! A little on the small side for my 13-pound cat, but she loves having it in her corner of the couch." —Kaylee

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

34. A croissant (or more accurately, croissandwich) wristlet perfect for a quick run to the pâtisserie.

Promising review: "Absolutely love it! So unique and pretty... Very roomy, too!" —Marivel

Get it from Amazon for $29.37.

35. A doughnut-print dress everyone will go ~glazy~ for! It's 100% sweeter than a regular polka-dot number.

Promising review: "I get so many compliments on this dress! Super cute and can be worn so many different ways!" —Julianne

Get it from ModCloth for $69.99 (available in sizes S-4X).


37. A cuddly sleeping bag every pizza lover ~kneads~ in their life.

It's machine-washable, in case you decide to eat some real pizza and get sauce on it.

Promising review: "I will have to get another one, as now both my kids want one! The material is SUPER soft and cozy. The construction is great — it even has a little zipper that goes partially down to make getting in easier! My four-year-old can completely fit inside, and for my seven-year-old, it goes as high as his neck when inside the bag, and if I can ever get a chance to use it, it goes up to my waist — perfect for reading and watching TV. Such a cute gift for someone, especially a young child to teenager. It reminds me of those popular Emoji pillows." —China-Li S.

Get it from Amazon (available in two sizes) or Jet for $29.99.
