    2. A "Chilly Mama" fridge and freezer freshener — just fill her up with baking soda and let her work her magic.

    Amazon

    There's an indicator that shows you when the baking soda should be replaced.

    Promising review: "I finally found a fun container to put in my fridge and freezer that won't spill over, and it makes me smile each time I see it. Easy to use and I liked the feature that reminds you when to change out the baking soda." —RHGEDL

    Get it from Amazon for $11.25.

    3. A cold brew bottle (with a built-in filter) so your iced tea feels extra fancy like fine wine. Bonus: you can use it to make cocktails, too!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've only had this teapot for a few days but it's making excellent cold brew iced tea that's helping me get through the first week in July in New York without an air conditioner. I'm considering buying a second! As another reviewer noted, I don't think it would be good for tea that's mostly fannings, but for larger leaf it should be fine. I bet you could make a mean gyokuru in this sucker!" —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $23.50 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    4. An aesthetically pleasing Billie razor to give you an extremely smooth shaving experience.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Read our full review of the Billie razor subscription service! The starter kit includes the razor, a magnetic holder, and two five-blade razor cartridges. Then, you can opt to receive four replacement cartridges for $9 when you need them. Bonus: you get free shipping on all razor subscriptions or orders over $15.

    Here's a little excerpt from our review: "Billie is just the most wonderful company, and every time I take a shower, I ponder if I should write them fan mail. First of all, everything they design is ADORABLE, so even if their razors were dull or flimsy, I'd still be a loyal fan. But luckily, their razors are as sharp as they are sharp looking. The handle is super lightweight and easy to grip. The razor heads are surrounded in a layer of soap, so they glide beautifully over skin without irritating it. Billie makes great razors and it's awesome that they're so affordable. If only they could go back in time and stop me from paying absurd amounts of money on pharmacy brand razors in my youth." —Rebecca O'Connell

    Get the starter kit from Billie for $9 (available in five razor colors).

    5. A pair of gold earbuds that'll make you feel as glamorous as 2006 Fergie. 🎶 We flying the first class, up in the sky, poppin' champagne, livin' my life 🎶

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Okay no BS peeps, these headphones are the business. I put these headphones through some serious hardcore work. I listen to everything from gangster rap to hardcore speed metal and everything in between, and not once have these headphones let me down. The sound quality is crystal clear, the base pounds hella heavy, and the highs are definitely on point. The cord is pretty much tangle-free, unlike inferior headphones that don't offer half of what these headphones have. Believe me when I tell you you'll seriously regret not buying these headphones." —Mike B.

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A rechargeable sonic facial cleansing brush for removing all traces of dirt and makeup and providing gentle exfoliation. Plus, it just looks super cool.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Read our full review of the Foreo Luna Mini 2!

    Promising review: "I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel, and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon-eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been." —hine0108

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in eight colors).

    7. A bottle of vitamins so pretty, you won't mind taking them.

    Ritual

    Read our full review of Ritual vitamins!

    Here's a little excerpt from our review: "The magic mostly lies in both the bottle and pill design — WHY DON'T ALL PILLS LOOK AND FEEL LIKE THIS — and also in the magical minty tab. I didn't realize it at first, but each bottle has a clear food-safe plastic tab at the bottom that's infused with peppermint oil; this makes the vitamins smell (and lightly taste) minty. It sounds like a small thing, but it actually goes a really long way. Overall, taking them each day is a legit lovely experience, so I actually do it." —Rachel Wilkerson Miller

    Get a one-month supply from Ritual for $30.

    8. A fidget spinner disguised as a sparkly ring you can wear all the time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had this ring for over six months and it's still going strong. I wear it in the shower, swimming pool, and at night and it still looks as good as new. The spinning portion does get gunked up depending on what kind of hand soap I use, but all I need to do is give it a good wash in dish soap with hot water and it's as good as new. It helps to keep me from picking on my cuticles and to help me concentrate while I'm studying. All in all, I am very satisfied with this ring and would recommend it to anyone looking for a spinner ring." —Joy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes 4–11 and six colors).

    9. A flat water bottle that'll fit into a briefcase (or any low-profile bag) without sticking out or creating an unsightly bulge. It might even motivate you to stay hydrated.

    instagram.com

    This 22-ounce bottle is made of BPA-free plastic.

    Promising review: "Great little guy to have in your water bottle arsenal! It's lightweight with a nice grippy side. My favorite part is the size. While it doesn't fit in traditional water bottle sleeves on the side of a backpack, the shorter, slimmer design makes it perfect for a messenger bag or a purse. It sits flat and doesn't roll around like a traditional bottle. Plus, I like that you can see the bottom to make sure it's clean!" —CharlieW

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six colors).

    10. A reusable shopping tote in a cute print for holding your lunch, picking up groceries, and much more! It folds down into a small pouch so you can fit it into any bag.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is not your usual, flimsy eco-tote. The first time I used it, I carried three 12-can packs (10 pounds each) of Coke and some other stuff from the drugstore. Any lesser bag would've torn. Folded, it fits in a standard jeans' back pocket." —Frontier Psychiatrist

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in 27 colors/patterns).

    11. A metallic peel-off mask (formulated with diamond and pearl powder) so your skin will look positively radiant.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "One of the best peel-off masks I have used. The scent is really light and pleasant, not overpowering. Skin definitely looks brighter and more radiant after use. Does not irritate my very sensitive skin, and it actually peels off very easily!!! There is probably enough for about 10 total applications. Will absolutely be purchasing again!" —Jennifer S.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    12. Rainbow stainless steel straws — they're not only environmentally-friendly but are also easy on the eyes.

    amazon.com

    Each set comes with four bent straws, four straight straws, one cleaning brush, and a canvas pouch.

    Promising review: "Got them to eliminate the use of plastic straws for environmental purposes, and they’re great, I love them! They’re beautiful and feel very durable and honestly make my cold beverage taste crisper." —STINAXOXO

    Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $5.94.

    13. A set of gold and marble-finish makeup brushes you'll want to display on your vanity – these babies don't belong in a drawer!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Was hesitant to buy these because my skin is sensitive, and I've just always believed the pricier the makeup/brushes, the better. Honestly, I haven't had any issue with these, and in fact, they are probably better than the brushes I have from Sephora. The bristles don't shed or come off on your face when you use them. Great quality for the price!" —Blair Niederhauser

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. And a gold organizer filled with pearls for the most extra way to store your makeup brushes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Looks lovely, exactly as pictured, and surprisingly, it's so functional I can't believe it. Great for makeup I use all the time, such as liner, brushes, mascara wand, and even a fave lipstick or two. And it's pretty. Definitely recommend, functional and decorative item." —readingisfun

    Get it from Amazon for $18.89.

    15. A Chemex pour-over coffee maker that'll not only make excellent joe but will also look darn good on your kitchen counter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this pour-over coffee maker. I’d been searching for that ‘perfect’ cup of coffee for years and I’m happy to say that I’ve struck gold with the Chemex. I have an expensive coffee maker and I have a single serve as well. I’ve never been completely satisfied with either of those even with high quality coffee and filtered water. The Chemex ‘brews’ extraordinary coffee; it’s easy to use and easy to clean. It’s a HIGH five!" —Ida S Moser

    Get it from Amazon for $44.95.

    16. A minimalist stoneware decanter to double as a piece of modern art.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three colors).

    17. A fluffy heating pad that'll make dealing with sore spots and period cramps no ~prob-llama~.

    Urban Outfitters

    Microwave it to keep you warm or even freeze it to cool you off. It's filled with natural buckwheat grains and lavender.

    Promising review: "Slightly smaller than I imagined but so cute. It doesn't initially feel hot when you heat it up but when you let it sit on you, you can feel the heat. My new BFF for the days when my cramps are intense. Also, my boyfriend likes to steal it and throw it in the freezer when I don't want to crank the AC up." —Lilwulf91

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    18. Pretty coasters made of absorbent ceramic so you can prevent water rings from forming and avoid using a napkin as a coaster.

    Amazon

    These actually have cork bottoms to prevent scratching.

    Promising review: "I got these for work to keep my desk dry and when I am looking for a distraction, it is fun to pour water on it to watch it absorb. I was skeptical about if it would really absorb but it does so quickly!" —Tiffany

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. A little tube of gel-cream blush you'll want to impulse purchase for the packaging. You won't get buyer's remorse though, because it goes on so naturally and is perfect for hot summer days.

    Glossier

    Read our full review of Glossier Cloud Paint!

    Promising review: "I am not a make up artist so I am not amazing at doing my cheeks but this is so pretty and easy to apply. It gives just the right amount of tint to your skin. Also, it lasts for a whole day. The colors are gorgeous, too. Great product with cute packaging." —ImagineCats

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six shades).

    20. A rose gold detangling brush to be the fairy godmother you never had — it'll make all your hair dreams come true.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Being in the military makes me plaster my hair to my head, so trying to brush out my hair at the end of the day with all the product turns into another war in itself. For as long as I can remember, I have always used a normal brush. I also used to just brush (or rip) my hair out as if my hair took my man from me. Honestly, I don't even know why I got the brush. It was a very impulsive, 'oooh that's shiny' purchase, but oh my lawd am I so thankful for this brush. The first time I used it, I decided to try after work. This thing literally told my hair that everything was going to be okay. I also used to make a rug on my floor with my hair, and I also could have made a scarf with the hair that was left on my regular brush after three days. Not this bad boy!!! Just buy it... It's shiny, it's nice to your hair, your head, and your floor." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $10.94 (available in four colors).

    21. A crystal clear flower lip balm that'll react with your lips and turn into a perfect shade of pink.

    Free People, instagram.com

    Promising review: "Love this! The color is subtle and always looks good with what you're wearing if you want a more natural look. Moisturizes your lips and the flower in it makes it fun. Will buy over and over again." —adastraperaspera

    Get it from Winky Lux for $16 (available in five colors).

    22. A little magnetic cloud for the cutest way to keep all your keys in one place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "One of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now. Hasn't lost any magnetism." —Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    23. A cookbook so gorgeous, it can double as a coffee table book. Hide this away on a bookshelf? Never! (Also, the recipes are delish and not overly complicated.)

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Confession: I am a cookbook hoarder. I love to read them in bed, with my coffee in the morning, on Sunday afternoons curled up with my dog on the couch. And yes, sometimes I like to cook out of them, too. But let's be honest, so many cookbooks these days are good for inspiration only when you live a normal, busy life and don't have every spice under the stars in your pantry. This book, though, this book is good for EVERYTHING. Read it, read it again, cook out of it, cook out of it again. The recipes are inventive while still being approachable. It's pure genius and everyone in my life will be receiving one for the holidays this year. BUY THIS COOKBOOK. DO IT. DO IT." —A. Frank

    Get it from Amazon for $23.21.

    24. A pretty aromatherapy pendant to carry your fave essential oil with you at all times. The design just makes ~scents~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This necklace serves the purpose of being a convenient way to have immediate access to your favorite essential oils. It's also very pretty and adds a nice decorative touch to an outfit. I love things that have dual purposes. If you are going to wear a piece of fashion jewelry, why not wear one that also provides you with aromatherapy? I got the antique bronze, and it has a vintage quality to it. Not a heavy piece; very lightweight, which I actually prefer. Who wants to be weighed down with a heavy piece around your neck? This would be a great gift for a friend or for yourself!" —LBC

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three finishes).

    25. A sleek Quip toothbrush that'll actually make you look forward to waking up and brushing your teeth. Honestly, a toothbrush has no business looking this good!

    instagram.com

    When you purchase a set, it comes with the Quip brush, travel cover mount, a large toothpaste, and a travel-sized toothpaste. Then for $10 every three months, you’ll be sent a new brush head, AAA battery, and two different-sized toothpastes — this refill subscription is optional, though, so you can just get the toothbrush set if you want!

    Get them from Quip: the plastic version for $25 or the metallic version for $40

    It's our cheap pick for the best electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    26. An eyeshadow palette shaped like a watermelon slice (!!!) filled with gorgeous neutral shades perfect for everyday wear. Don't just take my word for it — ~seed~ for yourself!

    Tarte

    Also, this product is vegan, cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, ophthalmologist-tested, and contact lens–safe.

    Promising review: "Super creamy and blendable. They smell great and last all day. What more could you ask for? I highly recommend." —Quisha J

    Get it from Tarte for $19.

    27. An electric kettle in a retro shade of pistachio green you'll want to constantly admire (even when you're not boiling water).

    Crate & Barrel

    I own and love this kettle — read my review for more deets (#5 on the list)!

    Get it from Amazon for $75.62 (available in six colors).

    Amazon

    And five years later, you can look back and reflect on your daily entries!

    Promising review: "I have known about these diaries for awhile, and when I saw this patterned cover I knew I had to get it. The colors are bright and the gold is shiny! It's absolutely beautiful! All the pages inside were there and in the correct date order, and the ribbon bookmark is very handy. I will be getting more for gifts!" —Jennie Nichols

    Get them from Amazon: the celestial one for $13.31 and the modern one for $15.62

    29. A moon phase yoga mat that'll not only provide solid cushioning, but will also ~crater~ to your aesthetic needs.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Used this for a class on asphalt. The mat was cushion enough not to hurt my joints when jogging and jumping and stayed cool even in the hot sun. Cute designs and easy to use strap to keep the mat rolled when not in use." —Krystal
