Trampolines Aren't Just For The Kiddosvia Amazon
This may be the most fun workout you've ever tried. Grab a mini trampoline on Amazon for right around $40 and you'll enjoy three guided workouts with your purchase and an LCD monitor that tracks your workout metrics. One reviewer said it was "very secure" with a "good bounce." Don't think a trampoline can get your heart pumping? Send your kids outside on their own for 20 minutes and see what happens.
This Set Of Underwear That's Basically Like A Second Skinvia Amazon
Being a grown-up lady doesn't mean you have to wear granny panties. But it also doesn't mean you should be forced to wear uncomfortable undergarments.
These set of six panties are made from breathable cotton, provide full coverage, and fit so perfectly to your body that you'll probably forget you're even wearing them.
I can't believe I've wasted so many years wearing the wrong type of undies!
These Camping Mugs Are Rustic Chicvia AmazonI'm not the only one in love with these camping mugs - over 3,000 people love them for how hot (or cold) it keeps their favorite beverage for hours. The insulated 16oz mugs are also leak-proof thanks to a clever spring-loaded lid opening that works with a slide of a button. The handle's also lined with cork so you won't burn your hands, a thoughtful touch that makes this mug even easier to love.
These Kate Spade Earrings That Add Sparkle Without Being Too Flashyvia Amazon
Kate Spade is one of my favorite designers because this brand is both classic and quirky. Take these earrings for example. They're classic studs that aren't too crazy, heavy, or garish. However, they're also made of a colorful, glittery material that comes in different color schemes –– so they attract just enough attention to feel unique. Who doesn't love getting new jewelry for the holidays?
This Throw Blanket Made From Soft Faux Furvia AmazonYou can never go wrong with a good throw blanket, and this one is made from ultra-plush faux fur.

Choose from dozens of colors, including blue, dark rose, teal, light pink, and more.
This Oil And Vinegar Bottle Looks Great On Displayvia AmazonThis oil and vinegar bottle works as good as it looks and is such a nice way to store these everyday salad staples. It makes the mundane special when you store balsamic and olive oil in this gorgeous sculpture. It also comes in grape motifs, but the bubble one is a modern look I love.
A High-Powered Scrubber For Tight Spots Around Your Housevia AmazonNothing compels a houseguest to leave more than a dirty shower, so make sure your grout is clean with this high-powered scrubber. It's water-resistant so you don't have to worry about it getting wet, and I like to use mine for those tight spots you can't easily get into — you know: grout, shower tracks, tire rims, etc.
This Sensory Sox Has a Calming Effectvia AmazonMany kids find the smooth, elastic sensation of the Sensory Sox to be very calming. Wearing it increases body and spatial awareness, and also inspires new, creative ways to play and relax.

This unique save keeps your butter soft and tasty, and you can even leave it on your countertop without worry.
This Angry Mama Really Cleans Your Microwavevia Amazon
Why do I feel like this Angry Mama microwave cleaner resembles me on cleaning day? She may be grumpy, but she sure does deep clean your microwave! If someone zapped the chili or spaghetti sauce for too long and it spattered all over the place, she's your gal. Fill her with a mix of vinegar and water, then microwave her for seven minutes - the steam will loosen up all the gunk, so all you have to do is wipe it down with a paper towel!
This Hair Tool That Gives You A Sleek Ponytailvia Amazon

This Supoon Is the World's Best Cooking Spoonvia Amazon
The makers of the Supoon claim it's the world's best cooking spoon, a claim so bold that I decided I had to try it. This silicone tool is sturdy at the tip but flexible on the sides. It includes measuring marks, so you can use it to add ingredients directly to the pan without dirtying another spoon. It also has a bent handle, so it sits up off the counter, making one less spot I have to clean. So, yeah, I agree it's the world's best cooking spoon, or at least the best one I've tried!
This Liquid Eyeliner Is a Premium Beauty Fave: Easy to Apply & Comes in Lots of Cool Colorsvia Amazon

This Whipped Cream Dispenser Is So Handyvia AmazonAlong with all those pies, my husband's also been making big bowls of homemade whipped cream (goodbye, waistline). We just use a spoon to slop it onto the pie, but this whipped cream dispenser would be such a better way to do it. Plus you can make so much more than whipped cream - you can use this durable dispenser to make nitro coffee, chocolate mousse, frothed lattes, flavored seltzers, and even butter!
This Pretty Little Car Trash Canvia AmazonThese cute little geometric trash capsules will fit in your car cup holder and look like a fancy travel mug. I love this idea! My car is always littered with mint wrappers and other little debris that would easily fit into one of these small receptacles. The best part is that they don't look like trash cans. They're stylish and easily pass for a high-end car accessory, all while secretly protecting passengers from the sight of your wadded tissue and melted lip balm.
Protect Skin After Masks, Peels, and Other Treatments With This EltaMD Tinted Mineral Sunscreenvia Amazon
I learned about EltaMD Tinted Mineral Sunscreen at my dermatologist's office. It's an extremely gentle mineral SPF formulation, which makes it suitable for use on extra-sensitive skin. It's also a good choice if you've recently done a facial, peel, or other treatment that can leave skin tender. As a bonus, it's lightly tinted to provide additional coverage and take the place of the foundation.
This Eucalyptus Garland with Champagne Roses Dresses Up Your Dining Tablevia Amazon
I love the idea of decorating for dinner parties or Sunday brunches, but I get overwhelmed when I contemplate fresh flowers, candles, and all the other Pinterest-panic-inducing choices. Instead, I've learned it's a lot easier to find one big accessory that does all the decorating work at once. That's the idea behind this Eucalyptus Garland with Champagne Roses. Measuring 78 inches long, it's made from fabric and looks gorgeous draped down the center of a table. One Amazon reviewer also displays hers on the fireplace mantle with string lights woven in. Pretty!

This Clump-Free Mascara That Truly Stays Clump-Freevia Amazon
Buying expensive mascara is a true waste of money. Regardless of whether you finished the tube, you should throw it away every three months or do to avoid clumping or infected eyelids from bacteria. Yes, your mascara can expire. So, buying a $20+ mascara makes very little financial sense. Luckily, I found a mascara that I truly love that is less than $10, and this is it. No matter how much I layer it on, it stays true to its promise of being clump-free.

This surge protector power strip covers all the bases, with six widely-spaced outlets for bulky plugs and six vertical outlets for normal plugs. It also has three smart USB ports so you can charge-up your phones and tablets. And the power cord is six feet long, so it can easily reach wherever you need it to go.
