Promising review: "This little thing did wonders for my skin in my office. I'm right next to a window so I often have to run my space heater, which dries the daylights out of my skin. This thing is easy to set up, well worth the money, and super cute. My eyes and nose stay moisturized and my skin looks better than it ever does in the winter.

Promising review: "I have a bad habit of typing more than drinking in the morning and found myself sipping ice cold coffee as I sifted through the day's business. Well, no more! My warmer keeps my coffee at just the right temperature. It especially keeps the last half or last third warm enough to drink, so no getting up to reheat. The orange light is really noticeable when on, so no forgetting about turning it off. This was a little, simple purchase, but a joyful —JML

16. A water art board to promote relaxation with zero mess! All the brush needs is water. Their image will disappear when the board dries. Amazon

Promising review: "All you need is a cup of water and you're good to go. The size is small enough to be portable and the board dries out fast enough to keep doing new designs. It's good for anxiety and passing time." —MamaGhostBooks

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

17. A pack of affirmation cards they'll want to read every morning for uplifting and positive messages without being overly sappy and cheesy. Amazon

Promising review: "Seriously the best thing ever. I love these cards. Each one is unique and has its own hilarious, charming, and heart-warming description. It's also ridiculously spot on.

Promising review: "Oh my gosh, I love this! It connects via Bluetooth so you can connect it to your phone, and then the music comes out of the microphone's speaker. It has a volume control for your voice and for the music, plus it has an echo option. I keep the echo very low usually. It comes with a really nice case, a USB charging cable, an audio cable, and two cloth covers to keep people from spitting on your microphone. This would be an awesome gift for anybody and super fun for parties." —Ferretocious

Promising review: "I bought this coffee table book as a gift for one of my cousins, but I ended up reading it about five times before I gave it to her. As someone who has shared a break room with some very anal coworkers, I couldn't help but laugh at all of these amazing photos.

This popper is made of durable silicone and collapses down for easy storage.

Promising review: "Why did I wait so long to buy a silicone popcorn popper? Could it get any easier to make popcorn? I put just a couple of drops of oil in the bottom of the bowl, add enough popcorn kernels to reach the the smallest circle in the bottom of the bowl, toss a little salt on the kernels, stir it so the kernels are coated with oil, and place it in the microwave. After around two minutes of popping, I have a nice, tasty bowl of popcorn. The size is just enough for a single serving. It's a good, healthy snack without a lot of effort. The bowl is good quality and the handles stay cool for handling the hot bowl when removing it from the microwave. It also washes easily." —HighlandAngel
