At just $14, Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling leggings are beloved for their fit and buttery-soft texture. They’re lightweight (folks say they feel like wearing nothing at all), available in regular and plus sizes, and sit slightly above the belly button on most people. Choose from 15 colors (though basic black is always a hit). Almost 40,000 reviewers give them a near-perfect rating.

“Let me start by saying this review is coming from a person who owns roughly 30 to 40 pairs of leggings—most are high-end brands.... THESE LEGGINGS ARE BETTER QUALITY!,” writes an enthusiastic reviewer. “These are the softest leggings I have ever worn...by a landslide! Similar to brands LuLaRoe and Butter but in my opinion SOFTER.”

Silk pillowcases may seem like a luxury reserved for royalty, but all of us should be taking advantage of the deliciousness that is silk against skin. They also prevent bedhead, keeping your hair movie-star perfect while you rest. That’s why these are the No. 1 best-selling pillowcase on Amazon. And look at the sale price right now—10 bucks for a pair. What a deal.

Made from premium, 100 percent Mulberry silk, these super-soft pillowcases—with a 4.5-star rating from a whopping 97,300+ reviewers—glide when in contact with skin and hair, rather than tugging or creasing. In 23 colors and three sizes.

“Kept my hair PERFECT all night,” writes a five-star reviewer. “... I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. If this material is that nurturing to my hair, I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors.”

The No. 1 best-selling sauce on all of Amazon is this multitasking culinary hero. It’s honey that packs some heat, perfect for drizzling over pizza, wings, or BBQ ribs—or even mixing into a cocktail.

“I tend to shy away from spicy foods, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try a new condiment to liven up snacks and recipes. I was afraid the spice would be overpowering, but it’s actually quite mellow and smooth; just the right touch of heat,” raves a reviewer. “So far, I’ve enjoyed this on fruit salad (banana, strawberry and blueberry) with cottage cheese, and drizzled on the original Chick-fil-A sandwich. So delicious!”

All you have to do is attach it to your keys and you're all set!,” writes a five-star reviewer. “When you misplace your keys, you go into the app on your phone (which is super user- friendly) and tap “find my keys”....

American made products are just not easy to find anymore. But really, the proof in the quality of this cast iron was obvious when i made sweet potato corn bread and baked it in the oven in this skillet. It came out so nice and brown and moist.”

Plus, it absorbs so skin is not sticky. This serum from Neutrogena has a high concentration of hyaluronic acid and works wonders on winter skin. A delicious indulgence for a friend or for yourself.

“This is fantastic hydration for 60 and over skin,” writes a happy shopper. “It is an effective and affordable alternative to the high-priced skin care lines. I also use rose water mist in combination with this. Very light, goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly.”

An Amazon’s Choice product, this set of wolverine-like claws—make a great gift for the grill master in your life. Or, honestly, anyone who cooks (they double as salad tossers).

“A great set of shredders for the price,” writes a reviewer who replaced an old pair by another manufacturer. “These Bear Paws are sharp, they shred meat easily and fit my hands very well. They're comfortable to hold, which is nice when shredding 10 to 20 pounds of pork for a party. I also use one claw when carving meat. I stick one claw into the meat to hold it steady while I carve with a knife, works much better than trying to use a fork...” They’re also great for mixing salads or lifting a turkey out of the roasting pan.

Opening the packaging, I was surprised by the softness and the seemingly good construction of the set. After washing...the sheets seemed even softer! Over the past few months and several washings, the sheets still look brand new, with no appreciable change, except for an increasing softness. In short, I have become a microfiber sheet fan.”

How am I going to cover it up for the wedding?’ I came across this mask online and saw reviews and thought, ‘there is no way this mask helps with acne marks.

A great gift but perhaps an even better gift-to-self? If winter skin (or allergies, or plants) could speak, it would be begging you to add this to your cart. It’s Amazon’s top-rated humidifier, and at only $40 with a 4.4-star rating from nearly 38,000 reviewers, it’s a steal. Smart and efficient, it runs for 16 hours and has an automatic shut-off feature.

“I purchased the Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier several months ago. I was waking up miserable in the mornings with dry mouth and sinuses. I was also experiencing frequent nose bleeds. I began using the humidifier at night in my bedroom which is 14 x 14 feet. After the first use I felt relief,” says a five-star reviewer. “I used the humidifier every night until the midwest humidity set in. The unit runs quietly and the subtle (optional) blue light can also serve as a night light. Great solution to dry winter air!”

This box of sox in the form of pizza is the delightful gift everyone needs right now. Your recipient gets four pairs, presented thusly, to mix or match (he or she can wear crust on the left and pepperoni on the right, say). The quality of socks is as high as the smile-quotient of this charming presentation. Nearly 6,000 shoppers give these socks a 4.8-star rating, so snatch them up before they’re gone.

“I bought these for my 28-year-old son who is currently stationed in KY (US Army Special Reactions Team). He always complains about the pizza (being from NJ, we KNOW pizza). Since I couldn’t send him any pies I figured I’d get him these (as a gag gift). Well, let me tell you, they were NOT considered a gag gift to him, he LOVED them. Said they were probably the best gift I gave him (umm I gave him many expensive gifts)—goes to show you price isn’t everything,” says a happy shopper. “The quality of the socks were great. They fit well and didn’t make his feet sweat. The best part was the presentation. The pizza box was adorable and the creative way the socks were rolled to look like an actual pie was so cool and it even had the pizza protector (you’ll see).....”
