An adorable bookmark book tracker to gamify reading and entice you to finally finish the story on your nightstand.


britishbookart / Etsy

Britishbookart sells the most beautiful paintings of your favorite literary characters, like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, as well as reading trackers and bookmarks.

Promising review: “Oh my gosh these bookmarks are the PERFECT thing to kick off my 2021 reading, though I must admit I am already a bit behind… These came super quick from the UK and are seriously the perfect addition to my ever growing collection of bookmarks!! Great quality and perfect for any bookworm!!” —Jordan Hodges

Get it from britishbookart on Etsy for $3.59.

2.

A collagen-coating hair treatment (in adorable packaging, I might add!) that’ll revitalize a mane that’s dry, damaged, and overprocessed. Waking up with frizz-free hair? Umm, yes please!


Bek O’Connell / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “I have very thick, very long curly hair. My expectations for this product were extremely low since I have tried a great variety of products that seemingly work but eventually fail. This product stands out among the rest. It does exactly what it advertises. I was amazed at how easily I was able to comb through my hair after just one use. I am so excited to have found this and will keep purchasing it in the future.” —Gigi

Get it from Amazon for $7.50.

Read our review of Elizavecca’s CER-100 Collagen Coating Hair Protein Treatment to learn more about why my colleague calls it, “the miracle product I’ve been searching for.”


3.

A mini waffle maker because heart-shaped waffles taste better than regular waffles. (It’s a well-known fact!) Plus this lil’ gadget weighs less than a pound, heats up in minutes, and also works with chaffles (low-carb cheese and egg waffles), paninis, hash browns, and even biscuit pizzas.


Amazon

Promising review: “It’s mini mini, perfect if you’re in a dorm/small apartment/just don’t have a lot of storage space. It cooks super duper quick; honestly I think this would actually make enough waffles for a big group faster than my old waffle maker, which was your typical heavy clunky Belgian waffle maker that took forever to heat up. The thing came with a little recipe book in the back of the instruction manual and the basic waffle recipe is perfect!” —Dana

Get it from Amazon for $16.07.

Check out my colleague’s review of the regular-shaped mini waffle maker (#2), which turned her into a breakfast person.

4.

Or a ~rawr-some~ dinosaur-shaped silicone pancake mold for impressing the littlest ones in your home. No kid (and probably few adults) would turn down the chance to gobble up an edible dinosaur.


Zavery Cakes/Rekeisha Dunlap

Zavery Cakes is a Black-owned small biz originally created to impress a 5-year-old. Now we all get to reap the benefits of these fun pancake molds!

Get it from Zavery Cakes for $12.99.

5.

A purring cat toy if you want to help soothe your anxious cat (and maybe capture the sweetest Instagram photos). This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your feline can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring “cat.” It also plays calming, comforting sounds.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She’s pooped on it a couple of times so I’ve had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It’s held up great.” —S Leytem

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.


6.

Or an ~ducking~ awesome and basically tear-resistant stuffed duck so you can stop spending money on toys that your furry destroyer shreds in approximately 10 seconds. Absolutely not me over here making baby noises while my dog plays with her duck.


amazon.com

Promising review: “My dog Hazel LOVES this duck! She has had it for nine months now, and it’s still intact! It somehow made it through her teething as a puppy. She rips and tears apart all of her toys, but this one still looks decent!” —Emily Ann

Get it from Amazon for $7.90.


7.

A bright and cheery aqua-colored Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a shiny, salon-worthy blowout in minutes. FYI this is the hot air brush that all the influencers you follow on IG are raving about because it is just 👏 that 👏 good 👏.


amazon.com, Amazon

The brush has special vents that allow air to flow so hair dries faster. Plus, it’s quicker than using a dryer and then a flat iron or curling iron, which equals less heat damage.

Promising review:This product did what it said it would and more. It is easy to use, and it has saved me time getting ready in the morning. My hair is so shiny and full of volume. It feels very healthy. Even the ends of my hair look good. I have even been able to use it to extend days between washes. Very impressed.” —Sara Kovach

Get it from Amazon for $40.98+ (available in five colors).


8.

A miniature baking set that’ll remind you of all the fun you had as a kid with your Easy-Bake Oven. *Me using this kit* “OMG look at the tiny spoons! OMG look at the mini rolling pin. OMFG look at my bb pie!”


amazon.com, amazon.com

The set comes with a storage tin, rolling pin, wee-knife, pizza/dough cutter, mixing spoon, three wee-spoons, mixing bowl, pizza/pie pan, pie server, sheet pan, silicone cake and cupcake molds, two silicone finger mitts, and 48-page recipe book. The recipe book comes with explanations on how the food chemistry works so it’s great for newbie food scientists.

Promising review: “I gave this to my sister for Christmas and she immediately used it to make mini treats with the kids. They LOVE it! I just kept getting texts and pictures from them about how functional and FUN it is.” —Leslie Palmer

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.


9.

A pack of portable soap sheets because it’s both ~beary~ practical and un~bear~ably cute. We’ve all had to use shady public restrooms and cringed when you press the soap dispenser only to find that it’s empty. Not anymore!


Amazon

Promising review: “Exactly what I wanted! Hands feel very clean after wash! Highly recommend! I read other reviews and decided these had the best reviews, those reviews did not disappoint! Each sheet of soap produces enough soap to give the comfort of knowing your hands are throughly clean. We liked our first order so much that we bought 10 packs for my fiancé’s work crew to help make keeping their hands clean during this pandemic! (He’s a delivery driver/repair tech.) If you have wanted to try something like this product, I highly recommend this brand!” —Clippin4You

Get 200 sheets (two pink and two blue containers with 50 sheets each) from Amazon for $8.99.

10.

A mystery box of cat hats for the feline fan who adores dressing up their fur baby. Who knows, asserting your dominance and outfitting your cat with a BANANA hat may finally force him to accept your love.


amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Cat hats are truly a godsend. There is nothing more adorable or silly than accessorizing your little furry friend with such captivating head pieces. Though I was hoping for the crab, the axolotl was probably the best one. I truly loved this product and had a blast with it. Unfortunately, Kitty probably didn’t share my enthusiasm or joy upon wearing the hood, though she was a good sport.” —Piiku

Get the aquatic box for $7.59 or the fruit box for $7.59 from Amazon.


11.

A woven planter if you’re looking to hide the unsightly plastic pots your plants currently call home.


2Modern

Get it from 2Modern for $139.95+ (available in three sizes).

A set of cactus dryer balls so you don’t have to wait hours for your laundry to dry. They help aerate the dryer so it finishes 50% faster while also reducing static cling and wrinkles. As a true adult, you recognize how absolutely wonderful warm laundry is and now realize how silly you were to toss the dryer balls your parents gifted you forever ago.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Love these little guys! I don’t use them with delicate items, but for most everything else they work so well to fluff up clothes and ensure that everything gets dry (especially when you tend to overload your dryer like me). Such a fun, cute design too! I can’t help but smile when I toss them in the dryer. I kept one and gave the other to my daughter, who also loves them. Great Christmas stocking stuffer!” —janetjw

Get two from Amazon for $13.95.

A highly relatable Good Advice Cupcake sticker to decorate your laptop, water bottle, you name it.


Shop BuzzFeed

A cute screaming goat who sits on a tree stump and shrieks whenever you touch it (honestly, same) because sometimes world events just seem so overwhelming and you need an outlet for all your feelings.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I saw this on Amazon and it was definitely an impulse purchase. I chuckle every time I hear the scream of the goat. It is just an amusing toy to keep on your desk and let off a little steam, because sometimes you feel like screaming like this goat at work!” —C.C.

Get it from Amazon for $9.40.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review (for the animals book): “I’ve taken up some silly hobbies while in quarantine. Coloring has been one of them. I love each picture these are so cute and fun.

Get it from In A Nutshell Studio on Amazon Handmade for $4.50.

18.

A compressive-yet-stretchy two-piece workout set so you can ditch your old leggings and sports bras for a set that’s made of a moisture-wicking material. No more suffocating summer runs and outdoor workouts!


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “In love with this!! It’s seamless and thick fabric that’s still breathable. The best part is they don’t roll up. If you have thick legs, you know what I mean!! Some other seamless compression shorts I have get really hot and your a$$ is sweating within three minutes. These are somehow breathable and not as hot. In love! Extremely comfortable and squat-proof.” —Jooj

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 15 colors).


19.

Or a pair of moisture-wicking high-rise 7/8 compression leggings that’ll keep you cool during sweaty HIIT sessions and yoga flows.


Free People

Promising review: “I’ve tried leggings from all the major activewear brands and just got these in black a week ago. It quickly became my favorite pair 🙂 Perfect for yoga and Pilates. They’re super comfortable, do a great job of staying up, and the seam lines are really cute.” —emmanyc

Get them from Free People for $98 (available in sizes XS–L and 13 colors).

20.

A set of cute pens that’ll make you smile as you sit at your desk and hate your job.


Amazon

Promising review:These pens write really well, are superfine, and pretty adorable. I didn’t think I would like them so much and was worried they would smear really bad (I’m left-handed), but they don’t. The cap stays on nice and tight and is easy to stick on the end of the pen while you’re using it and won’t fall off. My only recommendation would be to go EASY on the pens until you find the right grip and pressure for writing. The metal tips are very fine, so you want to be careful when writing as you can put indentation on your paper, or might even bend the tip. Now I just have to make sure people don’t steal them from my desk…” —Laurabear

Get a set of six from Amazon for $6.59.

21.

A vegan and cruelty-free Function of Beauty shampoo + conditioner because it’s tailored to your specific hair type and texture and comes with the cutest stickers so you can customize your bottles, too.

Personalization Mall

Promising review: “Our new puppy was always trying to grab our couch throw pillows! Now he has his own. Ordered the large, it’s a perfect size. Works as both a toy and pillow. Looks adorable on his bed.” —RosaAnn D.

Get it from Personalization Mall for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

23.

A snarky gel eye mask if you’re trying to let your family or roommates know that now is definitely not the time to bother you.


Smartass & Sass

Get it from Smartass & Sass for $12.

24.

A vampire-shaped garlic press so your hands don’t reek for the next three days. Just twist the Count’s head to crush the garlic — easy peasy garlic squeezy. Be careful not to have too much fun with this or you’ll end up crushing more garlic than you need…which is not a bad problem to have tbh.


Amazon

Promising review: “It’s so ridiculous how cute and functional it is! I hated chopping or mincing garlic before getting this! It is fast and efficient, and can get a lot done quickly. Did I mention how cute this is? Also, please know this IS dishwasher-safe. I pop the hair off before putting the top in the dishwasher, and the bottom is one piece so no issues of water getting in and staying there, as other reviewers have expressed concerns about. BUT! If there is ONE THING that is a bit of a pain, it is getting ALL the bits out — but a small silicone spatula or scraper does the trick just fine for me! I use this garlic tool daily; it is honestly a game-changer for my cooking game!” —Llamazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $19.

25.

An adorable cat spoon to keep you company while you’re sipping your cat-puccino.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now I no longer have to go searching for spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup my fingers don’t get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it’s absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I’m away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine.” —Brianna S

Get it from Amazon for $2.39.

26.

A bundle of dried palm leaves that’ll add some pizzazz if green plants aren’t your thing. Plus they’re just as beautiful on their own as they are in a larger floral arrangement.

A mini Pusheen cross-stitch kit because chonky cats and ridiculously adorable embroidery is your core aesthetic.


amazon.com

It comes with a 32-page book of instructions and patterns, two pieces of cloth, an embroidery hoop, two needles, and four skeins of thread.

Promising review: “This is a great little kit. It totally got me back into cross-stitching! I seriously hadn’t done it in years! The squares are a little small, but I got used to it as I went along. It comes with everything you need to do three cute Pusheen cross-stitches. I hope they make more cross-stitch kits in the future. All you need is a little bit of time and fortitude, and you can have three super cute Pusheens!” —Kristin Bell
