    1. A dish squeegee to get your plates and bowls ~squeaky~ clean and not end up finding crusted on mac 'n' cheese there weeks later. 😬

    2. A John Frieda Hot Air Brush – get ready to be ~blown~ away by how great it makes your hair look. You'll feel like you just got an expensive blowout without needing to leave the house.

    3. A Rocketbook smart reusable notebook that takes your hand-written notes and makes them digital in seconds. You'll never have to buy another notebook again.

    4. A microwave pasta cooker because waiting for water to boil is the WORST part of making pasta. What's the saying about watching paint dry? Well, when you're hungry, boiling water is worse than that.

    5. A can of fume-free oven cleaner that'll make your oven so clean, Hansel and Gretel may be tricked again.

    6. A Bluetooth shower speaker to take your shower concert to the next level and provide the background music and vocals you've been missing. First the shower and then the world!

    7. A handheld vacuum designed to make it super easy to get rid of the bed hair on your couch (and every other surface) once and for all.

    8. An acne patch made with Hydrocolloid, tea tree oil, and calendula oil to gently draw out the gross stuff in the pimple and stop it in its tracks from ruining your big date, presentation — or just your everyday life.

    9. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets you stick in your water bottles, coffee mugs, etc. to remove stains and odors you thought might be stuck there forever.

    10. A posture corrector you'll ~straight~ up be obsessed with because you've finally realized you should have listened to your mom when she kept "annoying" you by telling you to stand up straight.

    11. A rechargeable lighter so anyone (*cough, cough* me) who struggles to get a lighter to work can light candles in seconds with a simple switch.

    12. A wine stain–remover spray because you shouldn't be held responsible for any spills that happen during happy hour or movie night with your friends. Red wine is too good not to drink!

    13. A ruffled blouse you won't have a ~ruff~ time keeping on heavy rotation. Who says a WFH wardrobe can't be a little polished?

    14. An ice cube tray with a lid 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?"

    15. A hair-finishing stick that looks like mascara but actually works to put all your baby hairs, flyaways, and broken hair into their place (i.e. on your head and not in whatever direction they feel like it). Your hair will look more polished and put together in seconds.

    16. A waterproof Kindle you can use to read in the bath (game changer) to really take your reading routine to new ~depths~.

    17. A vegetable chopper because, in my opinion, chopping veggies is *insert Jean-Ralphio voice* THE WOOOOORST part of cooking, but this gadget chops them in seconds so you can get on with your life.

    18. A beeswax-infused wood polish and conditioner that'll work like magic to return any wood to its original state and keep it from fading.

    19. A foot peel mask to return your dry and cracked feet to their original, baby-like feeling. Just be prepared for peeling...a lot of peeling.

    20. A pair of mirrored glasses to help you read, watch TV or play games while in the perfect, most comfortable position possible. Plus, they prevent neck and eye strain!

    21. A tongue scraper you can use to remove foul gunk from your mouth that may be giving you bad breath that not even mints or gum can combat.

    22. A set of packing cubes – once you use them, you'll wonder how you've lived this long without them in your life. They help keep your clothes organized and allow you to fit more in suitcases for future trips. I call that a win-win.

    23. An under-cabinet lid opener because I can't be the only one who's gotten so frustrated when I can't get a jar open that I've simply abandoned making dinner and just ordered takeout instead.

    24. Some seat gap fillers so you'll never experience the feeling of having your phone fall between the seat while you're driving, knowing it's going to take about 10 minutes to retrieve it from the black hole down there.

    25. A dandruff shampoo made with ketoconazole 1%, which is an antifungal ingredient designed to get those white flakes out of your hair and keep them out for good.

    26. A Diamond Dazzle Stik because you can only keep using the phrase "shine bright like a diamond" if your diamonds actually do shine bright.

    27. A portable blender so you can make a delicious smoothie in seconds. No more dealing with bulky blenders — or washing them, for that matter.
