Promising review: “Perfect for egg muffin sandwiches; it’s the right size and height after cooking compared to the ‘Mc’ brand. It is the best I have found after many years of trying. If you have ever wanted to make your own egg muffin at home, this pan is the one to use.” —Stephen J. Panasik
Promising review: “Bought this for my very artistic 13-year-old daughter. She’s forever asking, ‘what should I draw?’ I crossed my fingers when I ordered this, as we’ve tried many other books to inspire her that didn’t. When I gave it to her, I was expecting a lukewarm response. However, as she thumbed through the book, she started giggling and smiling and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I even got a spontaneous hug. She ran to the door when her dad got home to show him the book. And I think that the 642 options may just keep her inspired for a few weeks! 😉 Any book that can charm a 13-year-old girl is a keeper in my book!” —Fascinated viewer
Promising review: “Okay so you know when you buy something and read reviews that say they got tons of compliments and it’s usually not true? For once, it is! I get SOOO many compliments on these glasses! I have what I consider to be an odd face shape and have a difficult time finding frames that work for me, but I feel so fab in these glasses.” —Amanda
Promising review: “My plant animals arrived on time and they were exactly as described. I was very happy with the packaging and think they make great, unusual little gifts for the plant enthusiast and animal lovers among us. I’m looking forward to visitors spotting them ‘hanging about’ in my home.” —Hazel Coulter
Promising review: The process is easy, just upload a photo of your dog where they are facing camera for best results and they will crop to your dog’s head and pattern it out on these socks. End result looks great and the socks are comfortable, and best of all, they aren’t quitters! They stay up and have the right amount of elasticity.” —Cosmo Jones
Promising review: “I absolutely love these, all year long. The color looks white in the picture, but they’re actually gray. Not that I care, in fact I think that’s better anyway.” —Tori
Promising review: “My kids love these squishies. This is such a great value compared to two-pack blind bags that often sell out in stores. The pack had no duplicates and a great variety of animals. The colors are bright and the glitter is so awesome.” —Angela Hanson
Promising review: “Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I’ve used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver.” —M. Smith
Promising review: “The way they sit up helps them dry rapidly and they work very well too. I used them as stocking stuffers.” —pinkzin
Promising review: “Exactly as advertised. Great price point to test out this trend. I received many compliments my first time wearing these. I did not experience any issues with breakage yet. Highly recommended!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Indulgence Spa and Body Products on Etsy for $15 (available in various scents).
Promising review: “I absolutely love these bookmarks! Even though they are pretty small, they stay in the book, either opened or closed. They are really soft and rubbery, so they won’t crack or break very easily. I can foresee these lasting for a long time. Since they come in a package of six, I can not only have one for my book for reading, but I can place these in the pertinent chapters that I am studying in my textbooks as well. They really come in handy for that! These cute, little sprouts were a great treat for the little that I spent on them!” —Aimée le Huitième
I’ve tried this shampoo bar and confirm it smells divine! I love how it lathers and you really can’t beat the cute cat illustration.
Promising review: “I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next! As I turned on the wacky waving inflatable tube man I knew I’d have a friend for life. Someone you can really count on cheering you up when you are feeling down. He brought me such joy I started to cry with laughter and happiness.” —Robert Wurstner
I put this stuff on everything! It just makes food taste better. I highly recommend to any fellow spicy lovers looking for the perfect topping. This chili oil comes with seasoned salts, Mexican chilis, dried garlic, and shallots.
Promising review: “This is the definition of ‘product you didn’t know you needed because you didn’t know it existed.’ I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh no…now the fan’s on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek…now you’re in the dark.) They’re much better quality than I expected. They’re actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor.” —LHD
Promising review: “This bracelet is just what I wanted. It’s dainty and subtly sparkly, but not so delicate that I can’t wear it every day. In fact, I’ve been wearing it since it arrived.” —Melanie Evans
Promising review: “Very nicely organized. Some cards are for immediate contemplation, while others are things to consider during the day. I’ve incorporated this into a morning routine.” —Chris G
Promising review: “I am a HUGE Stitch fan and I absolutely love this decal. I put it on the back passenger side door of my SUV. Perfect size and was easy to apply. Mine didn’t come with instructions, which for me was no big deal as I have applied decals in the past. You just peel off the blue side, put the decal where you want (peeled side down) and press hard (I use a credit card to smooth). Then slowly peel off the top.” —Eileen
They just roll this stick on the back on their neck, forehead, and temples for some relief from the most annoying head pain. And don’t worry about residue, the stick rolls on clear and won’t leave a greasy shine.
Promising review: “I have noticed throughout my work day I will begin to get the dreaded afternoon headache. This migraine stick is my new go-to. The second I feel a headache coming on, I just roll this on and within seconds I feel it working. Within a minute or so I feel fine again. I have also noticed it give a little boost of energy as well. I have also used it when I feel a full blown migraine coming on. All I can say is it really works. In addition to taking the pain away, it also provides a tingly sensation. Wherever you roll it on tingles after application.
I have also noticed that even if I use it often, it keeps working. You don’t grow a tolerance to it.” —Corinne Beck
Promising review: “This game is a ton of fun! If you like puzzle/strategy games I would definitely recommend this! It’s a game that two people could play so my wife and I love to play it! It takes a little bit to understand the rules, but once you do it’s easy. I would definitely recommend it.” —jstivers
Promising review: “These lipsticks are so cute, so magical. The color that mine settles on my lips is subtle and not very dramatic. It almost gives me the feeling of wearing lip balm, which is my go-to for all things lips, so this was perfect!” —Daisy L. Alvarez
Promising review: “My kids loved these! They are a bit large for a younger child (4 years) but still useable. My kids have sensitive eczema prone skin and these mask did not irritate their skin at all. My husband even tried one and was shocked at how moisturizing it was.” —Amy
Promising review: “This ring is even cuter in person. It arrived carefully packaged along with a mood chart for the color-changing stone, and it fits perfectly (thank you for offering different sizes). I love it!” —Dana Morgan
Promising review: “Great set of bitters!!! A+++++ Every drop goes a long way in a cocktail. A very nice sampler to try out! Only drawback — it need hinges for the top of box.” —RJ
It comes with a lid if they want to use it for small stuff like paperclips but most reviewers use it as a pencil cup or planter.
Promising review: “Cutest Groot ever! I use it as a pencil holder at work. It also comes with a cap so you can use it also for storage for small stuff (not necessary as a plant pot or pencil holder). Great gift for any age for home or office!” —Sophia
Promising review: “This tea infuser is so adorable! I got many compliments from it at work. It runs a little small though, you can’t fill it as much as most regular sized tea bags but the look makes up for it.” —Joan Walsh
Promising review: “I don’t know what kind of sorcery this is, but these things work. It used to take three cycles to dry my comforter and bed sheets. I’m one of those set-it-and-forget-it people, so I’d always forget to turn the dryer back on for round two and three, which meant that at midnight, when my husband and I were about to pass out from exhaustion, I’d remember the sheets and comforter were still in the dryer, undoubtedly damp because I didn’t run them through the dryer another two times. So I finally bought these puppies and as usual, I dried the comforter and bed sheets once, and forgot to check on them. That night, my husband asked where our sheets were since they weren’t on the bed at bed time. Then he groaned, and asked if I remembered to really dry them. So I checked the dryer and lo and behold, they were dry! I have actually remembered to check the dryer once after drying the bed sheets and they were dry as soon as the first cycle was over. So, it’s a miracle. These things work. TL,DR: I’m bad at laundry; these make me good.” —Gabby
Promising review: “Really cute keychain with a quirky miniature design. I got it for my work bathroom key. The metal is not as shiny as in the pictures but it does look like good quality. It doesn’t have that cheap look many metal keychains have. I’ve dropped it quite a few times and so far no damage. I get compliments all the time.” —Veronica
Promising review: “These cards are great! As someone who owns more than a couple of tarot decks, the cardstock on these is superb for the price. This deck is friendly and has a very aesthetically pleasing color palette — even some of the darker cards of the deck are rather light-hearted. The images themselves are fantastic, cute, colorful without overdoing it, and not too gimmicky. If you like tarot and you also happen to like cats, get this deck!” —A. Asher
Promising review: “I haven’t had these socks for long and I’m not rough on socks, but the comfort is high. The extra tab at the back seems to keep them from sliding and the opening of the sock is smaller than most of my other socks.” —Jen Kellner
Promising review: “I am so pleased with this as my hair is long and I needed something to keep it out of my face while doing my skincare routine in the morning and before bed. This fits perfectly and does not offer any discomfort or irritation for my big head. Etude is one of my favorites and I’m glad my product was authentic when it arrived in that lovely blue bag.” —Tae 태범
Promising review: “I LOVE this scent, it smells like a Christmas tree. The little jar looks so cute even with all of the junk I have hanging from my mirror. I will definitely be ordering Alpine Getaway and Orange Grove again!” —Brenda Lugo
Promising review: “My daughter loves the way it fizzes. It comes with a great little toy that she has kept with her the last few days. It turned the water a dark purple but didn’t stain the tub or my daughter. Loved it!!” —Target Reviewer
It comes with 25 colors: 12 shimmery shades, 12 matte options, and one highlighter. It’s also cruelty-free!
Promising review: “Lovely combo of shades with so many different styles to create. Love this palette!” —Francesca M.
Promising review: “Medium quality, but tons of fun. Every time I wear it out, people love it. Great for impromptu drunken blues sessions. I put it on a necklace and wear it out when the mood strikes.” —Stefan
Promising review: “Just received these cute little boxes and am in love with them. Very thick and sturdy plastic but easy enough to open. These will work perfectly for filling with solid perfumes and giving out as stocking stuffer gifts because I don’t have to worry about it being a snug fit/lid falling off.” —Mary
Promising review: “This belt is so cute — great leopard print with a nice calf hair texture.” —Scout
Promising review: “How could you dislike these socks? I bought three sets and I will gladly buy more! They are all adorable, so incredibly soft, and great quality! I gave a couple of pairs away as part of a vacation gift bag to my mom and sister, and now I have to buy more to replace them! These are my go-to socks now! I cannot recommend these enough.” —aubie99_98
Promising review: “This is liquid rainbow for your nails. I’ve found that with ILNP holographic polishes, as long as I use a good base coat and base color, I only ever need one coat of the holographic polish for good coverage (which is nice since the bottles are $10 a pop). The color lasts at least a week (with a good top coat) minimum, and the colors are truly lovely.” —Nnanelle
Promising review: “I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!” —Jeff R. Clow
Promising review: “The lip balm works just fine and it’s a fun gift to give because the packaging is worth it alone. Plus, the scents are yummy and it’s easy to find when digging in my bag.” —angie7827
Promising review: “Oh my gosh, these are so cute! I bought them as a gift for a student. The pens write extremely smoothly, ink flows quickly. Very fine point. Capped pen. For the price, so unbeatable! Highly recommend.” —Kelly
Promising review: “No, I didn’t buy this for a kid. I bought it for my old self. And yes!! I absolutely love it! The housing is plastic but surprisingly sturdy. The bell sounds like a bike bell should, and hey, it’s a burger — a favorite of mine after a long ride.” —kimberliee bee
Make sure they read all the directions before using so they don’t accidentally give themselves a hickey! I’ve used this and it totally works. It won’t completely get rid of 100% of your bug bites, but it makes a noticeable difference. I haven’t scratched once since this amazing device came into my life.
Promising review: “I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!” —Rebecca
Promising review: “A little about myself: I am a high school science teacher and I use these stamps in my classroom. THEY ARE AWESOME! I have my students do an activity (work out a problem or two) right at the beginning of class and give them about 3-5 minutes to complete them, and at the end of the week I collect their work, after the allowed time I go around and give them a LIKE if they got the correct answer and showed their work, and if they failed to get a correct answer they get a DISLIKE. I have never seen students so motivated to get a stamp before. It may sound childish but this has really helped me motivate my students to get their work done. Two thumbs up!” —Lazaro Tobias
Promising review: “Looks great, does what I hoped (keep from cutting off circulation — I have clotting issues) while still looking fashionable. I have my discreet gold exercise tracker and matched my hair tie to it; together they just look like some bangles. The other ones sold online that are cheaper are painted plastic — after a friend’s kid got sick from cheap jewelry, I decided that everything that’s in contact with my skin 24/7 has to be safe.” —1.5 Trick Pony
Promising review: “For more than a decade I have been using some sort of fidget item or spinner ring to help with my severe anxiety. I have had dozens of spinner rings over this years and I must say this Rose Gold Pauro ring is one of the best. The spinner spins wonderfully and does not stick at all like many spinner rings. It is also absolutely gorgeous and fits perfectly! I also rarely take my ring off for hand washing, and the water does not affect the ring at all. I would definitely recommend this ring!” —Emily
Promising review: “My girls want to be astronauts. We have gone space mad over here and these were perfect. That being said, these are huge. These are not children-sized earrings, and they aren’t for people who can’t wear heavy earrings. At the price point, they will still be fun for stockings, but they won’t get much wear for a few years.” —Rabidus Matris
Promising review: “Click the add to cart button — and add four more to your order. Everyone you know needs to be using YogaToes. I stand on my feet all day long and have been suffering from foot pain since I started my career. My toes were curled toward the big toe and my heels hurt so bad. At the end of each day the cramping was so horrible I couldn’t walk. I tried this toe separator and I’ll probably use it for the rest of my days. After one week my toes are straight and the pain is gone. I will forever swear by YogaToes!” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Loveee! They’re just as adorable in person as they are in the pictures. They got to me way before the expected delivery date. It’s hilarious that the sleeping and pouncing ones are anatomically correct.” —Chelsey
Promising review: “Amazing quality, definitely worth the price! The product is handmade. The legs are hand carved and painted, and the bookmark part is metal.” —Tiffanie
Apply the ink with a stencil, and the tattoo will develop over the next day to look like the real deal.
Promising review: “I purchased the kit for me and my GF. This was my first time with this kind of tattoo making, so I wasn’t sure what to expect aside from having a lot of fun. Well, we had way more than fun as we started inking each other. The tattoo making process is really easy. My tat is now six days old and still looks dark and sharp.” —Golan
Promising review: “I really, really like this mask. When you apply the mask to your face it looks like shimmering pearls. What I really like about the product is that it is a peel-off mask. Depending on thickly you put the product on your face it only takes 20-30 minutes to dry. That sounds like a long time but it is worth the wait. When you peel this off your face and then do a final rinse your face feels and looks wonderful.” —Grandma Fran
Promising review: “These seemed like really high quality laptop stickers when I got them. It was actually a present for my friend for Christmas and she loved them. Not all of them are great but most of them are from really funny parts in the show. There were only a couple of repeats in the packages so it’s a pretty wide variety too. Definitely would recommend.” —Jillian
Here’s how to play: You deal all the cards out to your two to four players, and everyone keeps their mini-deck face down. Everyone takes a turn putting a card down in the middle of the table, saying one of the words “taco,” “cat,” “goat,” “cheese,” and “pizza,” in that order. If the picture on your card matches the word that’s said, everyone slaps their hand on the card in a pile as quickly as possible. The last person on the pile has to take the stack and add them to their cards, and whoever runs out of cards first wins!
Promising review: “Ridiculous in a good way! I was skeptical about how much I may enjoy this game being in my mid-thirties. But it’s a lot of fun! Easy to learn, easy to play, my 8-year-old has lots of fun with it. Its a great family game with the potential to be a late-night more adult-oriented event if you’re picking up what I’m throwing down. Cheers!” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Great gadget for a great price. Easy to use and does its job well. It’s a nifty little thing. It pours smoothly and aerates well. I wash it by rinsing and running hot water through it and that seems to work.” —Chicago Sports Fan
Promising review: “I was really surprised by the sound quality on this as the speaker isn’t too large. It’s a nice simple product that i would definitely recommend. The buttons work well and Bluetooth connected seamlessly.” —Amazon Customer
Truffle-flavored jerky? I’m in! It also comes in four other flavors: BBQ, beer infused, hickory, or Carolina reaper.
Promising review: “Got this for my dad for Father’s Day. He’s been a beef jerky lover his whole life and said this was some of the best he’s ever had — too good to share! Highly recommend!” —Amazon Customer
