A clip-on, glow-in-the-dark ghost power bank, because if you’re gonna Google where to get the best local slice at 2am, you need some battery power left. Therefore you’ll need to actually *find* it in the dark.


Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

Promising review: “I bought this just to clip to my purse to have a backup charger. First of all it really works well. Charges up my Apple products pretty darn good. Second, he’s so cute and glows in the dark so how could you not love him? Ive only used him about four times but fully charged my iPhone in about an hour.” —CuttinHorseGirl



A unique shot glass to layer the alcohol and the chaser ~in one container~, so there’s no more bad taste after taking the shot.


It even comes with a recipe card for more ~creative~ shots.

Get individual ones from Amazon for $9.99 each (also available in sets of four, six, and twelve).

Promising review: “Chaser in the bottom, liquor on the top. Totally awesome! I have done fresh juice and gin, Dr. Pepper and rum, scotch and ginger ale — all perfectly mixed when tipped. The trick is to wait at least until the first bubble happens to swallow — this is when the mix occurs — otherwise it’s all liquor.” —Shawn



A pad of intoxication citations you can pass out to your messy friends upon the commission of a party foul. (Warning: These may be passed right back to you.)


Get it from Amazon for $7.05.



A set of toaster-friendly bags perfect for whipping up an ooey gooey grilled cheese when you can’t really manage the whole stove thing. Plus they’re dishwasher safe, so you don’t need to do any washing up by hand!


Get a set of three from Amazon for $16.03.

Promising review: “These things actually work. I was skeptical about how effective they would be. I was expecting the cheese to pool at the bottom or for them to be extremely hard to clean. Neither is the case. They take a little bit of experimenting to figure out what the right toaster setting is for good toasted bread with just the right amount of cheese being melted. Supposedly you can make 150 sandwiches using this set of three bags. Definitely worth the purchase given the low cost, ease of use, and ease of storage.” —Franklin Hood



An Ostrich mini arm pillow for anyone who truly believes anywhere is suitable for a nap. Yes, right there. Right there is fine; you’re only going to close your eyes for a sec.


Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

Promising review: “A dream at home and on the road. I frequently sleep on my hands, only to wake up to an uncomfortable dead arm. This solves that problem, as it moves with my head and hands, keeping me comfortable no matter which way I turn. Very useful for long flights and car rides, as it fits in a carry-on bag and is highly portable.” —Sean Simoneau



A pair of rocks glasses you can pick up with ease, but they’re very difficult to knock over, so you won’t lose the rest of your Old Fashioned, no matter how “clumsy” you are.

Get a set of two from Amazon for $34.99.

Promising review: “Bought this as a gift for my sister in law, the week before Shakespeare festival in Cedar City Utah. For our family, after we see the plays, we tend to sit by the hotel and drink some beers and cocktails. Our favorite cocktail happens to be an Old Fashioned, made a little sweeter than average. These glasses could not be spilled as long as they were on a flat and clean surface, which really wasn’t too hard to find. The only surface (of course) that it didn’t work on was the wirey looking tables that are often outdoors, but we weren’t expecting it to work there.” —zavier

Promising review: “I rarely write reviews. After using this product I felt I absolutely had to! These cloths are amazing. Wiped all my intricately placed makeup off in seconds!! Even my eyeliner and mascara are gone without a trace. I’m ordering more of these for Christmas gifts for my girlfriends. Money well spent! These are a must have if you’re tired of rubbing your face raw every night with washcloths or multiple makeup remover wipes like I used to!” —Ashley



A deck of cards that’ll turn ANY game into a drinking game — perfect for those occasions when you start to…forget…the rules of that one you used to play all the time.


Get it from Amazon for $11.30.

Promising review: “This is such a great add-on to other games. I’ve played it with multiple groups of people now and the thing that is always the same is how trashed everyone gets and how much fun everyone has. Several of my friends have purchased copies of their own, so I consider it a hit.” —Nikki1796

Just pop a tortilla in, pile with your ingredients, add another tortilla, and hot cheesy goodness will be ready in five.

Get it from Amazon for $29.47 (also available in blue).

Promising review: “I love this 8-inch electric griddle cooker. It cooks a chicken breast and sizzles it golden brown within minutes. I live in a small studio room with only my own makeshift kitchen and it makes my life wonderful for eggs in the morning paninis at noon and any kind of main dish dinner that you would normally broil or put in a fry pan. It makes a perfect burger and steak too. The 8-inch is perfect for one to two people. My favorite is taking corn tortillas and feeling them with whatever and sizzling them to a golden brown. Perfect.” —AnnieO~

I will be buying a couple of these bags for my teenage daughters!!” —zammama

Get it from Amazon for $28.95+ (available in 10 colors).

Promising review: “Oh my gosh, I love this! I got mine in the mail yesterday and ended up playing with it for about five hours last night LOL. It connects via Bluetooth so you can connect it to your phone — the music and your singing comes out of the microphone’s speaker. It has a volume control for your voice and for the music and also an echo feature. You can put an SD card into the bottom of it and record yourself, or connect it with an audio out to record on one of those karaoke apps on your phone. Between this and being able to find just about any song on karaoke via YouTube, you could easily have your own karaoke parties at home!” —Ferretocious

Get it from Amazon $11.95 (available in two colors).

Promising review: “This is one of those ‘gadgets’ that is really useful. If your microwave is above the stove like mine, you’ll understand why. Most microwave containers do not have handles so when you try to grasp them with a potholder or mitts, it’s very awkward…as well as dangerous and messy! This is a lifesaver. Highly recommended.” —Book Lady

Promising review: “I bought this book for my fiancé – he had seen it in a museum, but the prices were super high. I ordered it, and when I picked him up a couple of days later, he was overjoyed. On our way home from the airport, he found a pizza place in a neighboring town next to where we live, and this pizza was amazing! We are looking forward to trying more pizza in the NYC area.” —dsj0102

It provides a good amount of light but not too much to wake up my sleeping husband. It has multiple colors and the motion sensor is great. Plus it only lights up when you need it, unlike a night light. It is also really easy to set up. Love it!” —K. Adler

Get it from Amazon for $8.20.

Promising review: “As an avid wine drinker, I must say this is my favorite thing ever…. I finally was done cleaning all the dishes one night and I didn’t want to dirty another glass. I had a bottle opened and I figured ‘hey let me give this guzzle-buddy a try!’ It seems like it aerates the wine before it hits your mouth and it tastes MUCH better when drinking it from this glass than right from the bottle. It’s also a great gag-gift for wino friends! I overall enjoyed my purchase! :)” —Shelby Bassetti



A double-wall, stainless steel water bottle so you can fill it when you’re sober at 6 p.m…and then when you roll in at 3 a.m., it’ll still be ICE COLD. Sober you is so thoughtful.


It’ll keep your bevvies ice cold for up to 24 hours!!!!

Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in five sizes and nine colors).

Promising review: “This thermos will keep your drinks cold! When I first started using this thermos, I was filling it about 1/4 of the way with ice. After a few days, I realized I didn’t need anywhere near that much ice to keep my drink cold for eight hours. I started using less and less. Right now, I don’t use any ice at all, and my drink is still cold at the end of an eight-hour day. The stainless steel interior is easy to clean, and the exterior is rough and rugged. I have dropped it many times, and while it may have dinged the exterior a time or two, the performance of the thermos hasn’t changed. The seals on this thermos do their job, there is no leaking even when I lay the bottle on it’s side (except when I have forgotten to close the top). I would definitely recommend this thermos” —Ron A.

Highly recommend as a gift for someone who is hard to buy for.” —Blackmoonbruja

Promising review: “This is a lifesaver for Burning Man, or any other festival where bathroom opportunities are slim, Takes a bit of getting use to how to position it to avoid leaks but you can easily pee in a bottle. Stays clean and easy to clean and folds up pretty small. Can’t imagine burning man without this.” —Doomspore

Get a set of three eight-ounce flasks plus a funnel from Amazon for $8.99 (also available in several different sizes!)

Promising review: “We were going on a cruise and I decided to order these flasks to bring some liquor on board. I used two large (32 oz) and two medium (16 oz) sized flasks and stowed them in our luggage. Since this was the first time using anything like this, I took some extra precaution and placed them in zip-lock freezer bags. They work great! There was absolutely no leakage whatsoever. The flasks are very sturdy and even stand on their base. I would definitely recommend them.” —Kalibr

My real issue with other wine opener was getting the cork out of screw afterwards, but with this wine opener all I have to do is just hit the reverse button to get the cork out out with no problem! It comes with the cap opener and charging cable. It’s lightweight and just looks great too; I’ve kept it in my kitchen with wine bottles it looks like a piece of decor.
