Best Gift to Personalize

Warms the heart
The personal touch is the star here—you write little messages, which are rolled up and stored in glass bottle. Prompts make it easier, but it is a bit time consuming.

Check on Amazon

Best Gift to Personalize: INFMETRY Capsule Letters Message in a Bottle

There’s nothing like getting a handwritten note to warm the heart—this “messages in a bottle” themed gift is perfect on that score. Prompts like “songs that make me think of you” help with ideas on what to write. Affordable gift, yet leaves an impression.

What We Liked


• Easy to write on colored paper, which is then rolled up with metallic ring.

• Date night idea. 

• Personalized touch.

What Needs Work

• Time consuming to write out lots of messages.

Best For Bath Lover

Nice looking gift box
Made from sodium bicarbonate, these pucks dissolve in a shower . . . releasing sweet aromas (we liked the lavender best). Great for spa day at home.
$16.99 ($2.83 / Count)

Check on Amazon

Best For Bath Lover: Clevergy Aromatherapy Shower Steamers

What if you have a partner who loves bath bombs . . . but you don’t have a bath tub or time to take a bath? These “shower steamers” approximate the bath bomb experience, but in the shower. Our readers love this gift, which is easy to use (you place them in one corner of the shower, where they last for 5-10 minutes).

What We Liked

• Pleasant aromas including lavender and vanilla/orange.

• Great for spa day at home.

• Easy to use.

• Strong fragrance but not overpowering.

What Needs Work

• Placement in shower is key. The best bet is to put in one corner of your shower, not directly under the water.

Best Rose Petals

Perfect red color
Loved these beautiful petals that have a nice realistic look (and scent). Also nice: they are reusable and perfect for craft projects.
$7.99 ($0.00 / Count)

Check on Amazon

Best Rose Petals: CODE FLORIST 2200 PCS Dark-Red Silk Rose Petals

Nothing says romance more than rose petals. We tried out a few brands before deciding this one by Code Florist has the best bang for the buck. Yes, these are silk (not real) rose petals . . . perfect for scattering on the floor, bed or shower. 

What We Liked

• Realistic.

• Beautiful.

• Have nice perfume scent—but this dissipates if you let them air out for a day (in case you don’t like the aroma).

What Needs Work

• Folks are split on the scent—some didn’t like it while others say there is no scent at all.

• Takes time to pull apart each petal. Make sure you leave time to prep them.

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living off of affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
