1. A set of stainless steel straws that’s got soft silicone tips. Makes you want to sip from it.
Promising review: “I had used metal straws in the past but kept smacking my teeth on them and afraid I was going to spend a lot in dental work! The silicone tips (which come in a separate bag so you can put whatever color on whatever straw) are a teeth saver and amazing! Great colors as well. There are just those things in life that make you all giddy and happy from your soul and these are one of them for me! You will not regret getting these!” —Ickivay519
2. Silicone straws that’s reusable, extra-long, and will last for a long period of time.
Promising review: “These are perfect for my large 32 ounce Titan cup. Easy to clean, no weird smells like some silicone. The straw cleaners that came with are an added bonus. I have another brand at home that is nice, but this is perfect.” —Kindle Customer
3. A cookbook for the healthy enthusiast looking to eat mindfully and animal-free without having to spend a fortune.
Promising review: “Frugal Vegan is a very, very accessible cookbook. The recipes are simple yet creative and they really won’t break the bank. It’s a perfect book for someone like myself who wishes they were savvy in the kitchen but often doesn’t have the patience or energy or resources to make something nutritious and lavish. I highly recommend this book!” —Bobbi
4. A conversation-starting game that breaks the awkward silence, and yes! married couples could learn something about each other from the game.
Promising review: “Highly recommended for married couples! We spend too much time on our phones and computers, and this helps bring us together. Even after being married 25+ years, I loved hearing my hubby’s answers to the questions. Some questions really get you thinking! I recommended it to my friends, and I think they will be getting them too!” —Judy
5. A 39-piece tool kit to give off some color to your household tasks.
Promising review: “I love the tool selection and the kit is very easy to carry and transport. I use the screwdriver, the pliers, and the utility knife the most, and I am very glad to have all the tools. I am not a heavy user of tools, and I am certainly not a construction worker. However, this kit is great for around-the-house work, and all the tools seem very durable.” —GenuineBlood
6. A quilted, hypoallergenic comforter with a cozy, comfy and classy look.
Promising review: “This comforter is amazing! Incredibly soft and fluffy … and my (sensitive) family has had zero issues with allergies. You cannot beat the price either. Best value comforter I’ve ever purchased — highly recommend!” —Heather T.
7. A stainless steel tongue scraper that allows you stick your tongue out and wave goodbye to bad breath.
Promising review: “I probably scraped for almost five minutes. When I finally cleared it all, I stood there in front of the mirror with my big ol’ tongue hanging out like Lassie’s on a hot summer day. I was laughing and shaking my head, watching that big beautiful pink tongue that had shamed me for so many years laugh and play in his pinkish-red wonderland. Maybe I’m going a bit overboard here. But I just can’t get enough — I have literally been going into the bathroom JUST to unfurl my tongue before the mirror so I can admire it, like rolling out the red carpet to Nirvana, watching it sway back and forth like the pendulum of the divine, with myself still wide-eyed and wondrous of the miracle of Dr Tung.” —Stewart Clyde
8. A coconut curl styler and no doubt an award-winning beauty product that is 100% sulfate, with paraben- and silicone-free.
Promising review: “What is this magic?! I’ve just used this for the first time and I can’t stop staring at my hair. It’s never looked this good. Ever. I think I have 2c/3a hair and I’ve never seen my hair curl so hard before. It’s seriously amazing. I’ve just started trying to embrace my natural hair instead of hiding it and this stuff gives me hope. For real. It doesn’t make my hair crunchy and it gives them some bounce. My hair usually gets fluffy after a while but not with this stuff. Nope. It’s still going strong. Also, the smell is freaking amazing! I’m not a huge fan of coconut smells but this isn’t like in your face coconut. It’s like a summery coconut smell? It’s good. Trust me.” —Madyson
9. A flattering matte lipstick with many options as it comes in 10 subtle shades.
Promising review: “I freaking love this lipstick. I bought it (hesitantly) after watching a YouTube beauty video. I have brown skin, so it’s usually hard for me to watch videos online and buy products that I can’t see, because so often the colors are just wrong for me. BUT THIS PRODUCT IS GREAT FOR ME! I’m a caramel-y skin color, and this color is the perfect mauve-y nude for me. It’s the lipstick I reach for the most, and I’m so sure that I’ll purchase it again. The matte doesn’t dry your lips out, the pigmentation payoff is impressive for a drugstore brand, and it’s creamy for a long time before mattifying. I’m obsessed.” —Sanjay Gangal
10. A food storage set that will change your food storage game, no more excuse to waste food.
Promising review: “I have tried so many food storage containers in my lifetime it isn’t even funny. I found I liked the clip-lid kind (used a different brand) but I did not like that they were not really clear. I decided to give these a try. I really, really like these. They are clear and the snap lids are perfect. You can just lift up the clips and leave the lid on to cook in the microwave. Under the clips, there are air holes and this is why you can cook with the lid on. This stops splattering in the microwave so I don’t have to change containers or put a paper towel over it, etc.” —A. Holloway
11. A flattering high-waisted one-piece you can’t wait to show off at the beach.
Promising review: “This is the first year I decided I needed a one-piece for a little more coverage as I have outgrown my bikini years. The suit is comfortable, flattering, and covers the problem areas. Will be ordering another color. I am 5’5’’, 140 lbs, and the medium fit great. Despite the price, the suit is also very well made. Great value — highly recommend!” —Sarah Herhold
12. Bad Girls Don’t Die, a novel that has occupied reviewers time, and they have no intention of putting down soon.
Promising review: “I blew through this great little story in half a day, unable to stop until I reached the final page. Ms. Alender has created a complete experience for the reader, filled with fleshed-out characters, a vibrant backdrop, and an appropriate mixture of teen angst, romance, and suspense. Alexis and Kasey (sisters) have a dynamic and realistic relationship, which adds the appropriate level of tension and emotion to the more action-based scenes.” —CoLiamPet
13. A sheer bikini cover-up dress that you’ll be so excited to pack on your next beach vacation. It’s so soft and made of quality chiffon.
Promising review: “Bought this for a trip to Jamaica. Loved it! Nice size and great quality. I wore it over a tank with ankle pants and it was perfect for a Jamaican BBQ. Also wore it over a swimsuit. Looks exactly as pictured.” —Double R
14. A pair of women’s yoga pants with a surprising pocket on the side to keep your phone.
Promising review: “I was between a 2 and; 4, and ended up ordering the 2 and it fit perfectly. I am on the short side, 5’2″, so the length was perfect on me. Loved the pockets! Wore the pants on a hike, and we actually had to hike through a rock scramble — the phone stayed in place the whole time! I was afraid to drop it, but those pockets kept it tight and secure! Oh, and did I mention they are not see-through?! Perfect for some squats! Ordering more :)” —Jen
15. The 5-Ingredient College Cookbook, that contains healthy and easy-to-make recipes for college students and beyond.
Promising review: “I wanted my almost-18-year-old son to be able to survive on something more than Ramen and mac ‘n’ cheese. This book is amazing for any beginner cooks. It’s not just recipes. It starts off with a description of basic kitchen utensils that is needed and pantry basics. Keeping in mind that it is geared for college students (but helpful information for ANYONE), it also highlights foods that are good for the brain (cramming for a test?) and recovery foods (sports?). There’s even a section on buying groceries, from saving money to how to pick out produce. Right before the recipes, the books covers essential tasks like how to properly cut up some of those ingredients you will be using.” —A. Foster
16. An organic sea salt spray with a lavender fragrance that’ll give you that full voluminous hair you’ve always wanted.
Promising review: “I actually use this as a dry shampoo. It adds awesome body in my fine, oily-prone hair and makes it come to life throughout the day by spraying the scalp and a slight tease with a brush, next to the scalp. I am so glad to have found this.” —shi’s mom
17. White rainbow nail polish to give you a funky and eccentric look. It will leave people wondering if it was professionally done.
Promising review: “I love this polish. I’ve gotten so many compliments. I wore it for a month straight, replacing it after a week’s worth of wear and tear. It holds up really nicely. The polish is also surprisingly easy to remove. I use a base, then three coats, then a top coat. People keep asking if I had my nails done in a salon. I would recommend to anyone.” —Pam
18. An oil-absorbing tissue made from natural bamboo charcoal and formulated to leave your face refreshed and shine-free.
Promising review: “I’ve had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oil-blotting sheets because they’re lifesavers. THESE ARE AMAZING. Great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I used to use Clean & Clear sheets or knockoffs of the same thing, but I’ll never go back. Give these a try — completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. No negative things to say at all.” —Kelsey
19. A cooling bandana for a quick relief after sweating on a hot summer day.
Promising review: “This really works! Soak it in water before venturing out in really hot weather, and it will help keep you cool. You wouldn’t think that something so simple could be effective, but it is. This isn’t going to let you hike across Death Valley or anything, but on a hot day, it is the difference between being just a little too hot, to being tolerable. Some people wear it around your neck, others around their temples.” —J. Bruha
20. A button-up dress made of polyester that’s high in quality and cotton that fits for occasions like going to the office, hanging at the poolside, and at happy hour alike.
Promising review: “Very light and comfortable dress. Perfect for casual daywear or beach and resort wear.” —Amy
21. A meat thermometer so you can be assured the meat you are eating is done and well cooked.
Promising review: “After deciding that I needed a digital thermometer for tempering chocolate, I immediately began my search on Amazon and found this very affordable and versatile ThermoPro thermometer. Two days later (Prime shipping), it arrived in a padded envelope; it looks exactly as described and also comes with a cover for the thermometer stem. The battery is included (remove the tab) and there is a button to alternate between Fahrenheit and Celsius. I checked the accuracy of the thermometer by testing it in boiling water and in just a few seconds, the temperature climbed to 212°F (100°C). So far, the ThermoPro digital thermometer is working well!” —Ying
22. A lightweight cream that will revamp your skin and give your face less visible blemishes.
Promising review: “After doing my multi-step Korean skin care, including moisturizer, I apply about a pump or pump and a half all over my face and neck, then apply my foundation on top. It gives a really nice smooth effect and makes me look like I have better skin than I do. It does have 33 SPF, and a tint that lightens your skin a little, but natural-looking. So if you decide to forgo your makeup, it makes a nice sunscreen and adds a nice glow to your face. It also has not caused any breakouts on me.” —Happy Shopper 🙂
