Promising review: "I never write reviews but I was very happy with this product and decided to share my results. When I first got it, I wasn’t sure if it would work for me...I’ve never used tips before (only builder gel) and these seemed too curved for my nail. However, with practice I figured out how to apply them so now I will know for next time! The tips themselves are very sturdy and were easy to clip and file down to my desired length. The nail glue is also great and created a very sturdy bond. I do want to note that I used a dehydrator and primer prior to application to assure they would stay. The lamp is so cute and I love that it’s motion/touch for quick flash curing. Overall, I’m very impressed with Beetles products and support this brand. Their pricing is super affordable and have allowed me to teach myself how to do my own nails. I’ll never go back to the salon!" —Skylar
Price: $14.99+ (available in various sizes and shapes, and in matte versions)
Promising review: "Got mine used and it works well. I carry tension in my muscles from stress and struggle with good posture. This machine takes away my accrued pain at the end of the day in a few minutes. Improving my body and my mood. When you don’t feel like working out you can stand on this and it will shake the cobwebs off! It’s also good for stretching!" —JG
Price: $199.97+ (available in five colors)
Promising review: "An amazing knife. This will make your other knives jealous. As a matter of fact, get rid of your other ones. We just got this and put it to the test with everything from tomatoes, to watermelon, and veggies of all sorts. Turnips weren't a challenge for this. It cuts through everything we tried and are very pleased with its ability. It looks good and is well balanced." —Bill R.
Promising review: "This journal is an amazing opportunity for you to reimagine how you think. Starting and ending your day with gratitude was huge for me in getting through hard times. This even encouraged me to try other kinds of journaling. Overall, this journal enriched my life and I bring it everywhere with me!
The journal itself is a gorgeous material and is really durable. It feels nice to hold and packs away nicely. It’s really the perfect gift for yourself or anyone special in your life." —Sarah G.
Price: $23.49+ (available in six colors, and a Spanish version)
What's cool about this one, though, is that it comes with a straw lid, sippy lid, and a twist-off looped cap to fit whichever drink they decide to carry with them! (Bye-bye, drinking a homemade latte through a straw!)
Promising review: "I waited to write a review until I had used it for a few days. Let me just say….This is by far the best water bottle I have purchased!!! I put some water in it and placed it in the fridge overnight. Used it at work the next day for 9.5 hours and the water was still cold just sitting on my desk. Tried the next day to push it even further so I put ice in it with water and placed it in the fridge overnight. Guess what…to my amazement…After sitting in my desk all day again over 10 hours…it still had ice in it!!! I don’t have a single negative thing to say about this product. Buy it!! You won’t regret it. Oh and the colors are super pretty!!! They are exactly as they are pictured." —laura
Price: $19.95+ (available in six sizes and 28 colors)
*Me, I'm that bestie who ran to Bath & Body Works for anything Warm Vanilla Sugar. Fast-forward to 2023, I spray this Dulce parfum whenever I walk out the door and almost always receive compliments. (Yay!)
Promising review: "I actually asked a co-worker what cologne she had on because it was such a fresh scent. She turned me on to this brand or else I’d never have known about it. You need to advertise!" —Donna
Price: $75 (available in eight scents)
Promising review: "I needed to replace my old pots and pans and I came across this product. I fell in love with the cream-colored set but was afraid the product wouldn’t be as good. Boy was I wrong! I have been cooking all week in these and the food really doesn’t stick. I’ve cooked a few tomato-based recipes with fear of the pans staining or being a headache to clean. They clean really quickly and no stains. I’m glad I purchased them." —Bella
Price: $79.99+ (available in four set sizes and in two colors)
Promising review: "This little hand massager is PERFECT for my hands. I have rheumatoid arthritis and nerve pain in my hands pretty often, and the only thing that usually relieves it is massaging them (which is difficult to do on my own). I was super impressed with this little guy as soon as I first tried it. I love that it has different settings to use, depending on the kind of pain I'm having and the location on my hand. Love the two heat settings! Love that it has a 15-minute timer where it shuts off because I can fall asleep with it on my hand. It really is the only thing that's helped me with my unbearable hand pain. Give it a try!" —CB
Price: $71.08+ (also available in three colors)
Promising review: "This has really made a big difference in how I wake up every morning. On these short winter days, I always have to wake up before sunrise, and that's challenging. I found myself hitting the snooze button at least three times, leaving very little time for me to get ready and to work on time. Having the sunrise simulation wakes me up gradually and completely. I almost always wake up fully before the music starts, and I have not needed the snooze function yet. It does help that I put the lamp on a tall dresser across from my bed (also eliminating triggering the overly sensitive snooze function that other reviewers mentioned). All of the wakeup sounds were pleasant. I especially like the birdsong with flute music, as it reminds me of being in a spa. I like the dusk option for going to sleep. I set it for 30–60 minutes and read until it's too dark and I drop off to sleep. It is a significant investment, but it has been worth it." —MsEdinger
Note: Caterpillars sold separately.
Promising review: "This past holiday season I wanted to get all my kids educational-related gifts (they get enough other stuff — i.e. toys, video games, etc. from other family members). I opted for this for my 6-year-old daughter. What a success. Even my two sons got involved and learned something new. Every day they grew visibly, and the kids almost didn't believe me when I said that they would emerge from the chrysalises. But all five caterpillars survived and my kids were even lucky enough to catch the last two as they were emerging from their chrysalises." —Dude in his 30s
Promising review: "I'm a huge fan of massages. I spend a lot of money and time on them every month, but since buying this product, I have found myself going less. When I feel the need to go after a stressful day, I find myself thinking, I can use my new massager when I get home. No joke. Of course, nothing can replace the experience of a personal massage from a masseuse, but this massager gets all the stress-day knots out. I am definitely getting a second to leave at work. And I’m getting them as gifts. The product is definitely quality made. You won’t regret the purchase." —BB
This set includes one salad spoon, one salad fork, one serving spoon, one skimmer, one spatula, and one turner.
Promising review: "I have given these spoons as gifts and I love them, as do the recipients. Now I need a set for myself!" —L. Lester
Price: $29.99+ (available in two sizes)
Promising review: "I can tell a major difference since I started using this tool. My skin is much more clear. You can tell its providing a deeper clean and you can feel the freshness after using. Can use it in or out of the shower. Perfect size for traveling. Considering giving these as a bday/holiday gifts to some of my girlfriends." —Landa
Price: $19.99+ (available in five colors)
This set includes one moon lamp, one remote control, one USB charging cable, one wooden stand, and user instructions.
Promising review: "This is the perfect little lamp and it’s so surreal! You actually feel mesmerized when you look at it —it’s like the moon is really there in your hands! Perfect gift for anyone you love." —Ashley Nicole
Price: $15.99+ (available in five sizes)
Promising review: "This was a gift to me, so I wasn't sure what to expect from it. I've used it countless times to chill room temperature water (and occasionally coffee) and it works like a charm every time! This works better than I expected!" —CI
Price: $12.98+ (available in five colors)
Promising review: "I love this mini egg maker! I am a huge fan of sous-vide egg bites. I honestly had low expectations for this product. But it produces soft, pillowy egg bites every time. It could not be easier to use or clean. Plus, it is tiny and takes up little room in my cabinet. This is my new favorite gift to myself!" —Seth
Price: $37.98+ (available in six colors)
Promising review: "I bought this after buying other spiralizers that were difficult to use. This is by far the easiest one I’ve used!! I love all the different blades it comes with. I’ve used it at least once a week. I love that there’s so little waste also, much different than my previous spiralizers. And it keeps the seeds in one piece and not part of what goes into the food. My sister borrows it often also, little does she know, she’ll be gifted one soon." —hairguru121
Price: $28.99+ (available in two sets)
Promising review: "I was surprised at how much I liked it. My husband and I are not usually fans of the trending bohemian style, but we wanted to do something different for one of our guest rooms. We hung this over the guest bed using two white wall hooks. It is a showstopper and perfectly pulls the room together." —Conner
Price: $59.50+ (available in five colors)
Promising review: "I was skeptical about this product. I decided to buy because I was scrolling through the endless disposable loofah options, and I'm kind of tired of them falling apart or getting cheap ones. It lathers up my body wash really well, and the bristles are not too hard (which I was afraid of because I have sensitive skin). It feels really nice on my skin and I feel like I can scrub well enough with it. I'm glad I could find a reusable/eco-friendly option." —S Harrell
Price: $14.99 (available in 11 colors)
Promising review: "I like the aesthetic of this! It's pretty heavy for what it is. I expected it to be a bit lighter. I'm not mad about it! It's big enough to hold all my utensils and looks good on the counter!" —Michele
