Promising review: “The spot I’ve been spending every day off! This hammock is perfect; light, portable and super easy to set up. Insane value, a must have for anyone who enjoys being outside.

Promising review: “We have enjoyed this ice tray! I bought these for my fiancé and I because we started making fancier drinks at home during COVID19 self-isolation. They are a fun way to make your drinks fancier and prettier. The ice melts slower than smaller cubes, so there is less water in your drink as you continue to drink it. The mold is fairly easy and intuitive to put together and fill.” —ljc

I have tried three other Target reed diffusers and this is by far my favorite scent and the only one that has excellent staying power (comparable to pricey ones I’ve had from fancy retailers). Like others have said, it’s not perfume-y and the strength of the scent means that you can get away with using half the bottle if you are using it in a small/medium room. Plus, the ceramic vessel that it comes with is chic.” —Emily

Don’t get me wrong, I love my Starbucks, but this is a much cheaper alternative and tastes just as great. Highly, HIGHLY recommend it.” —alpal
