It doesn't really fit my kitchen either, but how could I not buy this cool spoon rest? Whenever someone first sees it on my stove, they think it's real ravioli, haha. Oh yeah, it's also functional.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. A USB-powered cactus humidifier because sitting at your desk (or kitchen table if you're WFH currently) when it's super dry out ~succs~, and you really shouldn't have to live that way.

    clear glass humidifier with two small green cacti on top and steam coming out of it

    Promising review: "I bought this little guy for my office area, and I couldn't be happier. Not only is this humidifier absolutely adorable, but it is also affordable and it works brilliantly. I noticed the difference in comfort the first day. Plug it in to a USB outlet and then push the little button. The sound is barely audible. Mine does shut off automatically after a period of time. To start it again, you simply press the button. I use standard tap water each morning and empty it in the afternoon. This was a great buy, and I am very happy." —Kmjs

    They can also be put in the washing machine!

    Promising review: "I originally picked these up to use in lieu of nasty, nasty dishrags that invoke my inner THIS IS NOT CLEAN demon. Since then, I have used them for everything from cleaning the kitchen to wiping up spills. After I use then, I just toss in the wash and they are ready to go again. They are the perfect size and do an excellent job on every task to which I have applied them. They come in a variety of fun prints, and I have yet to wear one out. Paper towel usage has taken a real nosedive, which is a good thing given its relative scarcity at present." —sandra simpson-kraft

    I own these and can truly say they are great. I used them whenever I have taco night, and they hold small shells easily so you can put all the ingredients in *and* set them down so you don't have to finish the taco in one go or risk it all falling apart.

    Promising review: "These do exactly what they are advertised to do and hold up tacos like a charm. The kids love to use them, and it keeps their taco filling from falling all over their plate, the table, and the floor. The dog is disappointed, but he’ll have to deal." —doug effle

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $14.74.

    Promising review: "I love having clean floors but sometimes I'm lazy and I live near the beach, so sand can be a hassle on the hardwood floors in my apartment. I love these so much and have worn them every day since I got them. They are super comfy and help clean!" ⁠—Laura J

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes and 15 different animals and styles).

    Promising review: "I don't normally review products, but this thing is a miracle-worker! My microwave hadn't been cleaned in quite a few years. All kinds of stuff dried and cooked on the inside of it. I tried to clean it using kitchen cleaner, but that didn't work at all. I used this as soon as I got it out of the box. Everything came off really easily. I did have to wash the glass tray in the sink, but now my microwave is spotless." —Stacy Orth

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    small vacuum made to look like a black and white cow with long nose to pick up small scraps

    Promising review: “I bought this vacuum for my kids to suck up all of their pencil-erasings from the table. The kids enjoy using this little vacuum. It is very tiny, about 6 inches long, so it fits nicely on the table and doesn't take up space. The suction is great for such a tiny, battery-operated vacuum and it is fairly quiet. It also does a great job sucking up crumbs and other tiny debris. The head pops off for easy emptying. For the price, it is a great little sucker. It is great to have on a desktop and looks adorable. I may get another for each of them to keep on their desks in their bedrooms.” —JoJo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    30. And a Baby Yoda tiki mug you can fill with water, tea, or even a cocktail for a glass that truly is ~out-of-this-world~ adorable.
