    1. A pack of reusable silicone straws for an eco-friendly and (much more attractive, tbh) alternative to your average plastic straw.

    Get it from Food52 for $25.

    2. A minimalist fabric-shade table lamp to bring a little zen into your space.


    Promising review: "This was well worth the money and had a lot more features than i thought. Our lamps were even better then the 5-star hotel we stayed at. Theirs didn't offer USB connections — only plug in outlets." —Meghan

    3. A modern stainless steel dog bowl to give your pup the royal treatment.


    Get it from Food52 for $25.

    6. A natural toothpaste and tube roller that'll bait you with some pastel and Helvetica — you win, Davids!! I care about toothpaste now.


    Promising review: "I love that the metal tube is recyclable. I give this as a gift. It feels fancy. It tastes mildly minty and isn't foamy. It cleans my teeth better than any other toothpaste I've tried, natural or otherwise." —

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    7. A pack of LED string lights for a surprisingly tasteful warm-white glow.,

    Promising review: "I used these to decorate my dorm room. I hung pictures with little clothespins on the wire between the lights and I absolutely LOVE them. Have had them for a half a year and no lights have gone out. The light is a warm color not too cold or harsh. Get lots of compliments on them." —Mar

    Get a pack from Amazon for $12.99.

    8. A geometric terrarium container to provide you with something out of the ordinary to showcase your succulents and air plants.

    9. Or, a vintage-style wooden stand with glass planter bulbs if you're aiming for a wackier quadrant.


    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available with one, two, or three terrariums and in black, silver, and gold).

    10. A pair of sculptural travel bottles that double as exfoliating tools you'll never mistake for someone else's.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $8.83 (available in three colors).

    12. A brightening diamond peel-off mask, because you *Donna Summer voice* work hard for your money and deserve a mask that looks and feels amazing.


    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 how 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. I then follow with a moisturizer (that's just me). I use this product once a week. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants younger- and better-looking skin." —Grandma Fran

    Get it from Amazon for $23.

    13. A hanging citronella coil so you don't have to evacuate your outdoor event when the mosquitoes come looking for blood.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18.

    14. A small stackable laundry basket that'll make you dread laundry time a whole lot less.

    Promising review: "I have trouble enjoying brushing my teeth ... but Quip makes that so much better! My last motorized brush was so loud and unpleasant that I avoided it (not good for dental hygiene). The second I got my Quip it was NICE to use! I look forward to brushing now, and have for three whole months on this thing! It feels like a massage, and even when I feel like I just don't have the time to brush, the four 30-second timers during brushing keep me patient and on track." —Rose

    Get it from Quip for $25.

    Promising review: "This is not your usual, flimsy eco-tote. The first time I used it, I carried three 12-can packs (10 lbs. each) of Coke and some other stuff from the drugstore. Any lesser bag would've torn. Folded, it fits in a standard jeans back pocket and comes with a separate, wallet-like pouch to help it fit in said pocket." —Frontier Psychiatrist

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in 19 patterns).
