A pair of polarized sunglasses with a retro-chic polygon shape that's sure to trick everyone into thinking they're wearing designer shades — and they'll never guess how little you paid for 'em. 😎

A screaming goat if they could use a little friend on their desk — a friend who lets out a little shriek whenever they touch it. Screaming in the workplace, frowned upon. Clever little goat figuring screaming in the workplace, hilarious and appropriate.

Promising review: "OOOOOOOF! This stuff is GREAT! I love spicy and it has a surprising little kick. I wouldn't say it's hella hot per say, but it has a phenomenal flavor. I love adding it to pizza, fried chicken, even salads, and my black coffee (lol — I have a Keurig and I fill my own pods with coffee grounds and add ground cinnamon to the pod). After making the cinnamon coffee I add the hot honey and woooo baby is it great). Anyway. It's a hit. Decent little kick but a fun amount of flavor that throws people off. Great pantry staple." —lierin

Promising review: "I saw this on Amazon and it was definitely an impulse purchase. I chuckle every time I hear the scream of the goat. It is just an amusing toy to keep on your desk and let off a little steam, because sometimes you feel like screaming like this goat at work!" —C.C.

Promising review: "I bought a two-pack of king-size cases on a whim, after reading how good it is for your hair to sleep on satin. I was a little skeptical since the price point on two king cases was so low, worrying the quality would be poor.

Boy was I happy when they arrived, and I found them to be made much better than I had expected. I washed them in cold water and low temp in my dryer. It felt so good to lay my head on something so silky soft. The pillowcase stayed cool to the touch, which is something this middle-aged woman appreciated! The next morning my hair wasn't frizzed out, nor the morning after that, and so on.

I've washed these pillowcases multiple times and so far, they have held up beautifully! I love them so much I just placed an order for another set to give my daughters! Great buy and good quality! I'm super pleased thus far." —Ms Mama C

Check out a TikTok of the chili crisp in action.

Here's what former BuzzFeeder Britt Ross says about this chili crisp: "Ever since my sister introduced me to this life-changing condiment, I've slathered it on pretty much everything I could think of — from roasted vegetables and noodles to seafood and popcorn. It's got a kick, yes, and while I'm a big fan of spicy food, the thing I love most about this chili crisp is that it also has great flavor that doesn't get overpowered by the heat, which happens with so many other spicy sauces. That deep savory flavor comes from ingredients like fermented black bean, shallots, mushroom powder, ginger, and seaweed, so it's no wonder it's become my go-to pantry staple when I want to zhuzh up my dinner. PS: Some people even swear by it as an ice cream topping!"

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three sizes and an extra spicy version).

Promising review: "My friend recently lost her beloved dog, and I took to Etsy to search for a commemorative item. I came across this custom dog portrait necklace and thought they looked so dainty and precious. I opted for the rose and had it personalized with the name of the dog in addition to the engraved portrait. The interaction was easy, swift, and friendly. Everything took approximately a week and my friend received the necklace this past weekend. She loved the necklace and described it as beautiful." —Alice

Promising review: "Always a 5-star product. I'm a repeat customer. I really like Sojos sunglasses because they are sturdy, fashionable, cool, well-made, and great quality. I get a lot of compliments every time I wear them. The mirror ones are my favorite. Good sun protection. I'll keep buying more for sure." —princesita

Promising review: "We played this recently when friends came over with their kids, and we all had such a blast! It IS quite fast-paced, and the slapping of cards can get a little rambunctious, but all the laughing makes it worth it. :) Just like all the other reviews say, just get it — it's really fun! Perfect family game, great for adults (for added bonus, while enjoying adult beverages), too. :)" —Mrs. Love

I *love* my Instant Pot and use it for all sorts of things. It's such an easy and quick way to meal prep for the week, or portion and freeze for easy weeknight meals. I love that it usually gives me plenty of leftovers too, hehe.

Promising review: "This product is my best friend and I would marry it and grow old with it if I could. I’ve put pork loins, potatoes, yellow bundt cakes, rice, corn on the cob (look up INSTANT POT MILK CORN ON COB and you will never eat it any other way again!). I’ve made pierogies, lasagna, apple dump cake, a whole chicken, bone broth, chicken noodle soup... and more. This is all in less than a month. I’m eating healthier. Eating out less. Cleanup is easy. The food tastes awesome. The pork loin never dried out after it sat on the serving tray." —sugabuga

Promising review: "I was never going to pay $129 for a coffee mug even though the Ember intrigued me. I mean come on, a mug that keeps your coffee warm for that much money, no way! Then, when a neighbor of mine was moving, she asked me if I wanted anything from her give away box. Low and behold there it was, an almost brand new Ember mug in black (the color I wanted). I got it home and hooked it up and the rest is history. The Ember mug changed my life forever, seriously! No more stepping away from my coffee when the wife has a small favor to ask which turns into a 30 minutes conversation and coming back to coffee mug that needed to be zapped in the microwave. No more getting tied up with a conference call only to take sip of cold sludge and another re-zapping at the microwave. Nope! The Ember kept my coffee piping hot just like I left. I loved it so much in my home office that I bought an Ember mug for my downtown office. I love it when a piece of technology that is a bit overpriced turns out to be totally worth the money!" —David F.

Promising review: "It has such a wonderful woodsy smell. Gentle, yet (as another reviewer said) potent. I can smell it through multiple rooms. I am happy to have a gluten-free alternative. I have severe celiac and am sensitive to the gluten even when in the air. I will be purchasing more of these candles in the future!" —Jen

Promising review: "I bought this glove after seeing it on Instagram, and WOW, I was impressed. I let my skin soften with a steamy shower for about eight minutes before scrubbing and was so impressed with the amount of dead skin that started to ball up! I have very sensitive skin, and it didn't irritate my skin at all. Highly recommend!" —Bridget

Promising review: "My friends kept telling me I should buy an Alexa. One friend gave me a demonstration of how easy and fast it was to obtain an internet radio station. Or how quickly it will solve mathematical problems. I was convinced, and bought one. Liked it so much I immediately ordered four more. Turns out you can synchronize all of them, so they play the same radio station or music in each room of your home. Although Alexas are smaller than a softball, they have amazingly rich sound. No, they won't replace my $2,500 stereo system, but they have replaced all my internet radios and boom boxes. Soon, I'll be installing electric switches the Alexa can control. Buy an Alexa. You'll like it!" —Dave

Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in three colors).

Promising review: "Seriously have tried ALL of the tea infusers ever since I stopped drinking coffee. This one is awesome! I've used it now for a few weeks, and never leave the house without it.

I love this infuser for so many reasons! It's made of glass, no plastic or metal taste. The taste of my tea is so much better, and it finally does not taste like a to-go drink. I've only made green tea and jasmine tea so far, but both were great. The bottle itself feels like a high-quality and well-designed product. It's glass and stainless steel, so feels sturdy and well-manufactured. Wish the sleeve came in more colors, but can't really complain.

It's SUPER easy to clean. The bottle opens from both ends, I throw the glass part in the dishwasher and just rinse out the little filter. It's great! The bottle never gets too hot, and the sleeve makes it feel like a cozy teddy bear. :) Also, the infuser doesn't leak tea leaves finally...nothing worse than getting chunks of tea as you sip from a portable bottle.

I use it every day from my long commute to work; the tea stays warm for about 1.5 hours, and many people have asked me about it! Overall, I am absolutely thrilled with the purchase, and I would highly recommend it to everyone." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I bought three as gifts for our mothers. Great way to stay in touch and give weekly updated pictures of the great-grandkids. The app is easy to use and can upload pics to multiple frames at the same time. Multiple people can be friends with the frame to have multiple family members uploading pics. You can add comments for the pics that the frame displays. The frame even shows who uploaded the pic. Each frame can hold a TON of pictures, 1,000 so far and still plenty of memory available. Easy setup and once set up, the frame is user friendly (even for the older generation)." —Dawn t
