Promising review: "I have used the press several times now and have been impressed each time. Nothing beats a fresh glass of OJ. One of my favorite things about this is the clean up. I had juicers in the past and the cleanup was painful. This is a simple design and requires very little time to clean up. Pro: very easy to use, great yield, super easy cleanup. Con: a bit tippy, requires hand placed on back of press." —B.C.

Promising review: "Beautiful gifts! Each one was unique, and everyone loved them! We all love to cook with fresh herbs, and this makes it so much easier! I even had to gift myself one!" —jennschwall
Promising review: "This has been a hit for years, so I bought another one for my son. It is actually more functional than any of the other styles that are way boring! I take it camping and even strangers are entertained. It takes a little practice to get the fish to flip the hot dogs over but it is so worth it and fun once you get the knack of it. My six year old granddaughter loves it because the hot dogs don't fall off." —Pony Expressed
Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in four colors).

Promising review: "This is very solid and awesome! It works perfectly." —Alex Hanin
Promising review: "This is very cool. In this pack, there is a rechargeable battery that doubles as an LED light – it's very bright and perfect for tents and camping. The rechargeable battery can be used to recharge other items, like your phone, etc. There are five magnets along the strip and you can slide them up and down to stick the strip on metal objects. It's very cool! I can see how this would be great if you were working in an area and needed light.

Promising review: "After researching, this diffuser cost a little more than others, but the design and quality more than justified the price difference. I've seen other diffusers and they are all plastic and feel/look cheaply made. The Vitruvi model really is stone, which adds value and appeal to my whole apartment. Also, it's smaller than other brands out there, so fits in well as an accessory. We ordered the peppermint oil and the diffuser worked great in our home. Great product and would recommend!" —Deanna
Get it from Amazon for $119+ (available in five colors).
This design only fits standard sized faucets but you can still use this even if it doesn't fit, just be sure to grab an adapter along with it.
Promising review: "I have Parkinson's and find it difficult to handle a water glass while taking my daily pills. This little water fountain is perfect for me! It was shipped quickly and was super easy to install with no tools. The knob is easy to slide in and out to change from faucet to fountain. The water comes up high enough that I do not have to bend too far over to drink from it. It is not in the way when I wash my hands. I really am glad that I spotted this gadget." —Texas Grandma
Get it from Amazon for $19.98.
The motion sensor will turn the bowl light on when you enter the room and the light sensor will turn it off whenever the lights are on in the bathroom. It has 16 different colors, so feel free to adjust it with your decor!
Promising review: "This is calming, creepy, soothing, eerie, beautiful, functional, and needed. It’s strangely satisfying to enter the bathroom in the dead of night and see the brilliant blue light glowing from between the lid and the seat. And to lift the lid and be greeted by a welcoming portal of soft brilliant light to guide you to your intended target: Magic." —3senough
Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (also available in packs of two and three).
Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize, it would be one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this. That's why I gave it five stars!" —Tessa Forbes
Get it from Amazon for $24.99.
This is one of the best office chairs around (gamers know what's up!). It's breathable, the cooling feature is amaaazing, and it works surprisingly well in small spaces (peep my photo on the right to see how well it fits in a tiny BK bedroom/home office). The chair is fully adjustable and gives great back and neck support. Whether you're a gamer or simply sitting for work all day, this splurge is a real treat!

This is waterproof and USB compatible.
Promising review: "This works like a champ. I was out camping in the mountains for five days with no electricity. I followed the instructions and made sure the unit had a full charge prior to its first use. The first night my cellphone was down to 10% and my tablet down to 5%. I turned them both off and plugged them in (at the same time) into the solar charger. When I woke up the in the morning they were both at 100% charge. During the day I left the solar charger exposed to the sun. Each night it charged my cellphone and my tablet to 100%." —Rover Rover

Promising review: "This is a great quality telescope, not just for beginners but for anyone. It has a smartphone attachment to record which is super cool! It has two replaceable eyepieces and one lens. The finder scope with mounting bracket and cross-hair lines inside makes finding objects like the moon easy. This telescope allows for many different viewing positions with a adjustable aluminum alloy tripod that extends for taller people and a carry bag, the telescope and tripod can fit inside the bag for storage or travel. I am looking forward to some cool videos and pictures!" —Pstivthnkn

"Thank You for the Music" — your dad, and also Abba.
Promising review: "These headphones changed my life. I am a computer professional who travels A LOT. Whether I'm at my desk or on the road, the noise canceling on these is a lifesaver. I can easily stay in the zone at work, drowning out any distractions. When I'm flying, I can't even hear the plane engines. These are worth every penny." —Sean S.

Promising review: "I love everything about this machine!!! Let me just tell you, I have been through four different products thus far and they were either battery operated or broke easily. This is the absolute best!!!! I like adding honey to my mug, then brewing my coffee while my heavy whipping cream is frothing away! Once its done, I pour my cream into my coffee!! Seriously the best!!" —Amber
Get it from Amazon for $39.99.
The straw's microfiltration membrane eliminates bacteria and parasites so you can safely drink from any available water source...seriously.
Promising review: "I used this on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." —Kingston
Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (also available in packs of two, three, and five).
Promising review: "I did a lot of research on coffee makers before deciding on this one. The delayed brew feature is very easy to program. I like that you can set the warmer plate to stay on for two to four hours, which I especially like on the weekend. The removable water reservoir is very convenient. It is also very environmentally friendly with a reusable filter. I have only used the classic brew setting and the coffee has a great flavor. The coffee is very hot, which is very helpful when I am using a travel mug on the go. I would definitely recommend this coffee maker." —Donna K.
Get it from Amazon for $145.99.
Promising review: "This is by far the best quality wireless charger out there." —Erik Z.
Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in six colors).
Promising review: "This is small, but packed with a lot of utility. It has a good weight to it (thin, but not flimsy), so it should last a long time. This is a great, useful gift." —KG
Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in seven colors).
Promising review: "I've had regular leather wallets for over 20 years. This is a huge improvement. I've only had mine for a few weeks and I'm already as fast at checkout as I was before. My slacks and jeans are now much more comfortable! This thing is solidly built, slim as advertised, and has never yet become a nuisance. For me, it has been an authentic life hack." —Duh?
Get it from Amazon for $85.
Promising review: "This is an excellent device that makes your house keyless and safe. My only negative comment is that it is a surface mounted device that would be EASY to remove and walk away with it. I added an escutcheon that surrounds the keypad that makes it a big deal to remove. Now we have a keyless, safe house." —wood-pro
Get it from Amazon for $59.99.
Promising review: "I think these are cool. I bought these for my husband (who usually carries around a small flashlight) for him to use while working on cars, etc. He thinks they are great! They are bright and work wonderfully. He told me I should get a pair for doing my knitting... a great idea!" —BeYouTiful
Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four styles).
Promising review: "Out of the box, I was elated. You just snap two ends together. The remote is also amazing. It is magnetized to store on the fan and has a rubberized finish. The controls are simple and it has 10 speeds. The air seems to come out concentrated in the center of the unit, then fans out like a flashlight beam. A lot of thought went into the design of this product." —Ken Bauman
Get it from Amazon for $291.46.

One of my BuzzFeed coworkers wrote about why this is the perfect gift for pet parents.
Promising review: "I was always concerned leaving my puppy home alone because he will cry a lot. When I got Furbo, things got much better! Furbo sent me notifications to my phone when he was crying, so I would log on and talk to him right away. This changed everything!! My puppy knows I'm always there, so his separation anxiety is getting better. He cries less and I feel much more relieved." —KUEI CHIH SUN

Owner Bruce Boone originally made bike parts in titanium. This caused him to make a titanium ring for himself, and then everyone else wanted one as well! The shop is located in Kennesaw, Georgia and is full of one-of-a-kind pieces worth investing in. I know from experience...I bought one for my husband's birthday (shh, don't tell him!).
Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough! First time bidet user here. When I say that this will change your entire outlook on life, I mean it. It comes in a cute box that’s very brand forward. Very easy to install, look it up on YouTube for a demonstration. It took maybe 10 minutes. Other bidets may be cheaper, but this has a very sleek and modern look. Other bidets look cheap and bulky." —Ignacio
Get it from Amazon for $79+ (available in four colors).
This connects directly with your phone (through your Wi-Fi) to display your favorite high-quality photos. It can chose photos for a slideshow on its own or you can manually pick which photos to display. It uses motion sensors to start a slideshow if someone is in front of it and it dims when the lights are off. You can also switch the picture by waving your hand in front of it. Pretty sure this thing is actual magic.
Promising review: "I bought this for my 80-year-old parents as a Christmas gift. I asked my millennial children to help their grandparents set it up but there was no need. My parents had it working right away and love adding new pictures as family and friends visit them. The beautiful packaging and presentation makes for a very impressive gift. The picture quality is outstanding. I think I’ll get one for me next!" —Kelly
