    1. A monogram mug that'll make a perfect birthday gift for your friend who "has everything".


    And also get one for yourself while you're at it....

    Promising review: "These mugs look like artwork! I purchased two as gifts and had to go back to purchase one for myself! They almost look like part of the room's decor rather than functional mugs! I love them and the entire bistro collection." —LovelyScent

    Get it from Anthropologie for $12 (available in 24 letters).

    2. A Simplehuman grocery bag dispenser to keep all the plastic bags you've accumulated together, so you can easily grab one whenever you need one. It's all about recycling and what we can do to be a little more green!

    Promising review: "I had a handmade bag to hold my plastic grocery bags, FOR YEARS!! When it finally tore so badly that I could no longer use it, I found this item. It's perfect! It's well made, has a stainless finish, and no sharp edges. It's mounted on the inside of my cabinet door, making it very convenient, and freeing up some space in my cabinet. It holds 25-30 bags, probably more if you really stuff them in. I really like this dispenser." —Cubby

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    3. A laundry detergent cup caddy that's such a simple but useful invention (it stops excess detergent from spilling everywhere), you're probably thinking to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?"


    Promising review: "This product does a great job serving its purpose, and especially for the price! I love how it stops the dripping of laundry fluids and stores the caps without having to rinse the cap excessively before storing it on a shelf. Would definitely buy again and have already recommended to friends. There are others out there at triple the price, but face it, they all do the same thing so why not save some money with this product." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $2.98.

    4. A Snowe Home classic bath towel designed to make you feel like you're using super fancy towels, without the hefty price tag that usually comes with that feeling.

    Snowe Home

    Promising review: "These were the first non-Target brand towels I've ever used, and they were worth the upgrade. I was a little bit nervous about getting white towels because things like makeup residue or leftover purple conditioner seemed like they'd really mess these up. But every time I wash them, they come out as clean as the day I got them. They also hold up beautifully in the wash and continue to stay fluffy and absorbent over time. I've used them daily for about six months, and they've held up the whole time. So, yeah, I'll give these a well-earned five stars." —Emi

    Get them from Snowe Home for $22 (available in five colors).

    P.S. These were our pick for best mid-priced bath towels on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    5. A sleek silverware tray because just letting your utensils sit in a pile really shouldn't ~slide~ anymore. You're better than that.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. A Drillbrush Power Scrubber you'll want to constantly take for a ~spin~ because it will get everything from your tub to your sink so darn clean.

    Promising review: "You will not be sorry you purchased these. Yes, I agree holding the drill can be awkward or heavy but it is so worth it ! The bathtub in my rental was disgusting and discolored from having hard water. I think the cleaning solution helped a little but not nearly as much as the brushes did ! Absolutely phenomenal. Would purchase 100 times over!" —Mark

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    7. Some storage baskets that'll transform your "secret closet" (à la Monica in Friends) into an organized heaven so beautiful, you'll actually want to show it off to everyone you know – you'll actually be able to find everything you're looking for!

    The Container Store

    Get them from The Container Store for $5.99+ (available in sizes small and medium).

    8. Some microfiber sheets with more than 42,000 (yes, you read that number right) five-star reviews raving about how soft and comfortable (and affordable) they are.


    Promising review: "I saw this on a BuzzFeed post. They weren’t playing around—These are amazing. I’ve washed them about 4 times in 2 months and they still feel so soft! I love these sheets. I will definitely continue to order my sheets from these guys!" —ASL6805

    Get them from Amazon for $27+ (available in twin, full, queen, king, California king, split king and in 39 colors and patterns).

    9. A velvet sheep ottoman you're going to want for your baby's nursery so baaaa-d the moment you see it.


    Get it from Walmart for $80.35.

    10. An ice cub tray with a lid so you don't have to play the game of "how can I stack my frozen food to keep the water in the tray from dumping everywhere?"


    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE ice cubes in my drinks, and it's so annoying to have ice cube problems. I really researched ice cube trays and read a lot of reviews until I found these trays. It's so nice not to have to worry about spilling water just trying to get them in there. Also, they come out of the tray so easily! No more fighting to get the cubes out. These just kind of pop out when you press down on one side." —Kalisa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. A corn butter knife – everyone who sees it will be all ~ears~ to hear where you got it, because they'll want one themselves. Yeah, that's right, you'll say, "I never have to struggle spreading butter on my corn again."

    The Grommett

    Promising review: "I really like this corn butter knife. It works best with cold butter. My husband always used a piece of bread to butter his corn before I bought these. Now he uses this every time. What a great idea." —Kathleen

    Get a set of two from The Grommett for $13.95.

    12. Some non-stick over liners you can cut to fit your oven or grill to protect it from getting covered in the goo and gunk that spills out of whatever you're cooking. Just pull the liner out (when the oven isn't hot anymore) and wash it in the sink for a fuss-free way to keep your oven clean.


    Promising review: "These liners are life changing! I never thought I needed them until a friend raved about them. Clean up is so simple, no more melted cheese or sauces burnt to the bottom of my ovens. I love that I can cut them down to fit in my toaster oven as well. My husband enjoys grilling with the liners now. He doesn't have to line the grill with aluminum foil, which he found so annoying, deterring him to grill. This product really has simplified my life in the kitchen, and I love it." —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.99.

    13. Some nonslip velvet hangers designed to take up less space *and* hold clothes better, so half your wardrobe doesn't end up on the floor when you try and take one shirt out.

    Promising review: "These hangers are amazing. They take up minimal space, are sturdy, and, best of all, the clothes don't fall down from them so it keeps everything looking neat. I have replaced all of the hangers in my closet with these hangers, and I couldn't be happier. I am pretty sure I now have double the amount of space. I love this product and would buy again." —Vida Maars

    Get a pack of 30 on Amazon for $15+ (available in black, grey, and, beige, and in 30-, 50- and 100- pack).

    14. A kabob grilling basket so you can make a delicious dinner on the grill and not have half of your kabob fall into the coals, never to be seen again.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "We absolutely loved these grilling baskets, and they kept all the vegetables and meat in place as we cooked them. We ended up just having to soak them in the sink to clean up and a small brush may help in the future to make sure all food is washed off." —Heidi

    Get them from Uncommon Goods for $17.

    15. A tea bag organizer that'll cut down on the number of boxes you have in your pantry and steam-line your tea collection: each slot is big enough to hold at least 10 tea bags. /

    Promising review: "This completely revamped my unorganized messy cupboard into one that is amazingly organized where I can actually find my tea without everything toppling out of the cupboard. Then I would angrily shove the tea boxes back up there, but now I can easily pull this out and grab my tea without any annoyance! Each cube holds about 10 bags comfortably (11 is quite the squeeze, but it will fit with force), so it will hold 120 bags total. Such a great purchase!" —Kryssy

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    16. A sloth planter – you won't be able to stop smiling when you see it hanging out in your home.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This wonderful sloth comes exactly as pictured and is super well made. It really brightens up my day to see him on my windowsill holding my ivy." —purplelauren

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18.

    17. A cooktop cleaning kit that comes with cleaner, a cleaning pad, and a scraper because if you can't remember the last time you've cleaned your stove, it's been too long.

    You use your oven enough, you should give it a nice deep clean every once and a while.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical, but I went for it, and holly molly, does it work. It works such wonders on my stupid glass cooktop that I feel like Martha freaking Stewart. Truth be told, cleaning has never been, nor will it ever be, my greatest strength, but this cleaning product makes it easy enough that even I could do it. Save yourself the time and frustration cause the landlord picked this stupid cooktop for the 'aesthetic' and a trap to keep your security deposit but you know what?!? Buy this thing and you can tell em, 'not this time! You won't get another penny out of me!!! Bwahahahaha" —Rita

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    18. Some magic cleaning pads designed to get rid of tough stains, grime, and dirt with only a touch of elbow grease to make it work.


    Promising review: "I own a cleaning business and have spent a small fortune on the name brand. I clean everything from condo rentals to long term lease/residential rentals, and I have had to clean unimaginable NASTY, I mean 'pics or it didn't happen' kind of nasty, and these cut right through it. They work just as well as the name brand, if not better, and they seem to last a little longer!" —Keisha Marie

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $8.95.

    19. A 24-pocket over-the-door organizer designed to hold shoes, but as many of the over 4,000 reviews say, it can also be used for SO many different things – from snacks, to water bottles, to baby gear, and more.,

    Promising review: "This is a really good product. It's sturdy and hangs perfectly on my closet door. I use it for shoes, but it could be used for so many other things. I've purchased similar products before but they were never thick enough and would tear. I'm not worried about this tearing; it's so well made." —Gadgetgal

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97.

    20. The cutest lil sitting pot that even Marie Kondo would approve of because it totally brings me joy just to look at it.


    Get it from ReadySetMade on Etsy for $12.58+ (available in normal and large and in six colors).

    21. An iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaner to help transform the way you clean your home. And by "transform," I mean = you get to sit back and catch up on Stranger Things while this little thing cruises around your home picking up dust and dirt as it goes.


    Promising review: "I love this thing. More than I should. My teen even said "Is this adulthood? Being this excited about a vacuum?" Yes, yes it is. It's run four times in the last week or so, and with each day it gets more efficient as it maps the house. The first day it was more like a stumbling drink, going on circles and running into furniture. It's much better now. It barely taps stool legs and corners. It's easy to pop out the tray and empty. I did use the tool to clean the brushes today after letting it loose in the master bath. I have long hair which can cause problems, but it cleaned very well. The floors look great. I've gotten alerts the two times she's gotten stuck on something." —Rie Irish

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99.

    22. A SimpleHouseware two-tier sliding basket designed to help you organize the area under the sink so you can fully use all the space that your home has.

    Promising review: "I can’t stop raving about this drawer set. I recently moved into a new place with woefully little bathroom storage. There’s plenty of under sink space, but with a lack of verticality, things get messy pretty quickly. Cue this Amazon purchase. I assembled this baby by myself in under 5 minutes (no exaggeration), I swept everything out of the cabinet, slid the drawer set in (fits like a dream!), and started organizing. Ten minutes later, everything from the “before” picture fit...PLUS ENTIRE Costco packages of toilet paper, make-up wipes, AND tampons. Don’t believe me? See the 'after' picture (above)! This is an organizational dream, and easily my best purchase of the year!" —Wallis

    Get it from Amazon for $24.87 (available in bronze, chrome, and silver).

    23. A cactus landscape tapestry that'll look so ~sharp~ on your wall, all your friends will want to come over and hang out at your place just so they can see it more.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is literally one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. It looks so cute on my wall. The size is correct and the colors are so nice. The material is great quality. It doesn’t feel cheap. I always get complimented on it. It's amazing." —tyrajamie25

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39.

    24. Some mesh laundry bags that are not only great to protect your bras and camis from getting tangled and stretched in the wash, but also works wonders to keep your clothing organized when you travel. I call that a win-win.


    Promising review: "I love these laundry bags. It makes sorting and doing my laundry simpler. They protect my bras and camis, so the straps don’t get all tangled with other clothing and get stretched out. As another reviewer stated, the one intended for bras leave some kind of white pilling on your bra, so won’t use it again, and use some of the smaller ones for my bras, camis, and other smaller delicate items. They are a bit stiff, but soften up after use, but are still durable and keeps my clothing protected in washing machine." —MLH

    Get a set of seven from Amazon for $8.99.

    25. A shower curtain liner made with a mildew process that causes it to last about four times as long as other brands before it gets gross. And for the price, you might as well stock up on 'em for every bathroom in your home!


    Promising review: "I have waited six months to write this review and my original liner looks as good as the day I hung it. There's no mildew or rust on it. The magnets have weight and stick well to the bath. So I replaced the liner in my other bathroom with another one of these. Excellent value and quality." —Homer's Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in clear, frosted, and white fabric).

    26. A constellation map you can have customized to feature exactly what the stars looked like on the night of a big occasion in your life (from a birthday, to an anniversary, or even the moment you met your special someone).


    Get it from FinchandCotter on Etsy for $24+ (available in 8x10 and 11x14 framed and unframed and six options).

    27. A scratch covering polish that'll transform any old wooden table or door into something that looks basically brand new. I mean, that before-and-after picture speaks for itself., Amazon

    Promising review: "This stuff really brought some of my old furniture back to life. It fills in the discoloration from rings and nicks, etc. It is easier to use than a stain because you don't have to sand anything or be perfect with application. I used a rag and just did a few layers on the surface. I used it on a table from Big Lots and also on an antique wood cabinet, and it came out great on both." —Ashley Bouchard

    Get it from Amazon for $4.82.

    28. An all-season duvet insert to give your bed a comfort makeover – your bed is *the* single most important part of your bedroom (and, if we're being real, your entire home), so it deserves it.


    Promising review: "This comforter is amazing! I was getting too warm with my down comforter, but I still wanted something soft, and this was the answer. It's very light, yet still provides enough warmth that I'm only using this with a flat sheet. It fit perfectly in my duvet cover and comes with loops on each corner and midway between the corners." —Joiseygirl

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in twin–California king and in seven colors).

    29. A cast iron shrimp pan because cooking shrimp shouldn't be as hard as it is. All you have to do is add some seasoning and place the shrimp in the individual spaces for a ~shrimply~ delicious dinner.

    Sur La Table

    Promising review: "I used it last night, and it was amazing. First, I heated it on the grill, while it was heating I melted butter, garlic and capers. When the pan was hot I put the butter mixture in the pan and added my shrimp. They turned out awesome, and the pan cleaned easily." —Alicia C

    Get it from Sur La Table for $39.95.

    30. A pillow case to show the world (okay, anyone who comes over) that you are a The Office stan and will probably use at least three references in conversation over the course of the night.


    Promising review: "This pillow is the bomb. I am a huge The Office fan and have been eyeing this pillow for months. I used a 20x20 feather insert, and it fits perfectly. I will say that when I was inserting the pillow inside the zipped area, I had to be extra careful, as I felt like it was a little cheaply sewn. I recommend hand washing this pillow case. Definitely won't be putting it in the washer. Overall, I would DEFINITELY buy again." —Amy R.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    31. A mold and mildew cleaner that'll make your bathroom feel like it's a basically brand new place – we don't all have enough money to fully upgrade our bathrooms (yet!), but that doesn't mean you should suffer through existing in a gross bathroom until that day comes., Amazon

    Promising review: "We had tried bleach along with other spray-on options and nothing worked. This was a last resort before I just removed it by putty knife and recaulked. I have to be honest, I did not expect the result to be this good and this easy to accomplish. I had two separate corners I applied this to and the result was the same, mold is gone. I applied it three times for a total of about five hours apart and have around a half bottle left. All I did was apply and use a rubber glove to spread around. I did not think the smell was too strong — reminded me of an indoor pool chlorine smell. The smell went away after several hours. After final application, I just took a wet paper towel and wiped off the excess gel. The ease of use and final result of this product was simply amazing. This far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely buy this again." —David H.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    32. Some window panels to give your living room a bit of privacy without sacrificing the great afternoon light it gets.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love these, and I highly recommend. They're excellent quality, and the color is beautiful. I love the weights that are added to the bottom hem, allowing the panels to drape nicely. They look expensive for a great price." —PeggySueBrekke

    Get them from Nordstrom for $39.99+ (available in three sizes and in blue and white).

    33. And a Game of Thrones doormat so you can proudly display your name as a Stark would in the midst of battle.


    Get it from EngravedLaboratory on Etsy for $27.99.

    Me thinking about how great my home is going to be with all these items in it:
