    A cat cot, felt letter board, holographic nail powder, and 24 other things you’ll want to add to your wish list ASAP.


    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Psst! Amazon has a section featuring products that people put on their wish lists and registries most often.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful products from that section this week:

    1. A holographic nail powder that'll make your gel manicure look out of this world!

    The set includes one jar of holographic nail powder and two sponge applicators. You will need a PrettyDiva gel top coat and UV lamp to achieve the look. Apply a coat of your normal gel polish and cure it under the UV lamp for 20–40 seconds (the holographic powder will look different when combined with different base colors). Then apply the PrettyDiva gel top coat and cure it under the UV lamp again for 20-40 seconds. Dip the sponge applicator in a small amount of the shimmery powder and buff it into the top coat in circular motions. You can use our finger to smooth it out if necessary. Finally, apply another coat of the PrettyDiva gel top coat and cure it under the UV lamp until it is completely dry. Then show off your amazing nails and make everyone jealous!

    Promising Review: "This is exactly what I was looking for in a chrome powder! There's no need to get that expensive powder when this PrettyDiva Silver Chrome is everything you need. The finish is smooth and looks amazing over any color! I think the secret to really making it shine is the applicator provided and buffing it in vigorously. It's a little messy, but take your time and you will have amazing results. Overall, this is a great product," —Nia B.

    Price: $7.99+

    2. A handheld vacuum for cleaning up small messes in hard to reach places.

    I have this little vacuum and absolutely love it!

    Promising Review: "I am a notoriously messy cook, and though I do clean up after myself, some weeks I look at my kitchen floor and wondered what happened. Combine that with living in a dry, dusty state, and sometimes it's hard to keep up. This is an awesome, powerful little unit with GREAT battery life. It does a great job getting in some of those hard to reach places, and picks up a variety of objects off the floor. It doesn't work as well on rugs, but still gets the job done." —Laura D.

    Price: $49

    3. A corner shelf to display small decorative items. This is one baby you *can* put in a corner!

    Promising Review: "This corner wall-mount shelf is great! It looks wonderful mounted to the wall. We have a small house and not much room to put pictures of the grandkids when we get them. Mounting this in the corner allowed me to be able to display those great pictures. There are five shelves and, though each shelf isn't too big, they are big enough to hold a 5"x7" framed picture. It's very modern and clean looking. I would definitely buy another one if I needed it!" —C. S. Rynearson

    Price: $22.99

    4. A set of 10 bath bombs which can turn your bath time into a relaxing spa-like experience.

    The bath bombs are made in America using all-natural high-quality vegan ingredients. Each bath bomb is individually wrapped.

    Promising Review: "I love these bath bombs. They are nice size and are very colorful. They smell so good, and make the bath very relaxing. They fizz and dissolve, which is so fun to watch. They would make an awesome gift. I will definitely order them again. There was a surprise bar of soap in my box! It's nicely made with a good smell!" —Happy

    Price: $24.97

    5. A Megaminx speed cube you'll love if you've mastered the Rubik's cube and want a more challenging puzzle.

    Promising Review: "This puzzle moves nearly flawlessly. There is no grinding and the corner cutting is quite impressive. It is such a smooth puzzle. I have had it for a while now and I am still in awe at the quality of it. I highly recommend this. It is also really good for those of you who are speed solvers with the Megaminx. I have nothing bad to say about this puzzle, that's how amazing it is!" —T-Lynn

    Price: $7.31

    6. A set of six hair pins for adding a subtle hint of style to your look.

    Promising Review: "I loved these. My bad hair days have never been so beautiful. I wanted something like this for so long. It does a trick in your rush hours to keep your hairstyle neat. I highly recommend them." —Anuradha Sapkal

    Price: $5.10

    7. A six-piece towel set so when you spend four hours in a towel after your shower at least it's a soft and comfy one.

    Promising Review: "I usually don't write reviews, but had to on these towels that I bought. They are so nice and the big towel is really big. It's bigger than I thought they would be. After washing them they didn't have any thread pulled out. They washed beautifully. These towels are thick. I liked them so much I bought my boys two sets each." —TW

    Price: $21.99 (available in 10 colors)

    8. A pair of agate bookends pretty enough to make even the ugliest spines look elegant.

    Promising Review: "These are exactly as described, and very pretty. When you purchase these (or any bookends) pay close attention to size and weight, to make sure you are getting sufficient heft to hold the books you have. I have a dozen or so different size books in this display, and that is about the limit for these bookends." —2GreySquirrels

    Price: $29.99 (available in five colors and four weights)

    9. A pair of adorable slippers that are just so adorable you may feel bad stepping on them.

    Promising Review: "These are great! They are so comfortable and cozy. The backs stay on and my heel doesn't slip out when I walk. And the cushion is amazing! I wear a size 8/8.5 and went for the 7/8. It's a great fit. Don't worry about sizing down for half sizes." —Lindsay L

    Price: $17.99+ (available in 27 animals)

    10. A window suction cat cot that'll be the perfect throne for your fluff ball who thinks he's the king of the castle.

    Promising Review: "Muffin the cat LOVES her kitty cot. We have moved it from window to window depending on the sun and she finds it whereever it is. Our kitty is a very large Maine Coon mix and we have had almost no issues with the cot staying up on the window. If the window is at all dirty or the suction cups are dirty (even with a little dust) it will not stick. So follow the directions on cleaning off your window first. We bought this for our fluffy friend because we have no place to comfortably put a cat tree. This is such a great solution that I think I'll buy another one when we save a little more money." —Tanya Howe

    Price: $44.95

    11. A lipstick organizer ideal for my fellow lipstick hoarders. You can fit 28 in this thing!

    Promising Review: "Perfect! This is exactly what I've been looking for and I finally found one to hold the majority of my lipsticks. This holds smaller, normal size lipsticks, not big ones, just an FYI. I will purchase another when I need more storage!" —Jackie

    Price: $18.89

    12. A memory foam kneeling mat to save your knees and elbows from the cold hard tile during bath time.

    Promising Review: "This is really helpful for baths! It gives a nice cushion for your knees and another pad for your arms. It's a really great product and it's durable. I love the fact that it folds up and can slide away to one side of the tub. My toilet is literally six inches from the tub (small bathroom) and it's really helpful to have the compact ability. The pockets are great too. This was a great find! " —Rachael R

    Price: $23.81

    13. An under-cabinet jar opener because not everyone has the Hulk-like strength needed to open certain jars.

    This installs easily and discretely under your cabinet using adhesive and three screws. Simply wedge your jar into the V-shaped teeth and twist to open.

    Promising Review: "This is an amazing tool. It will open any bottle or jar from a nail polish size to a huge pickle or spaghetti jar lid. It's the most used gadget in my kitchen. I recently had wrist surgery, but was still able to hold the jar up to the underside of the counter in the V-shaped teeth area with one hand and get it open. This product makes an ordinary task that requires grip strength much easier." —Kathleen T.

    Price: $15.99

    14. A reversible waterproof dog vest guaranteed to give you the best dressed pup at the dog park!

    Promising Review: "This jacket is super cute and well-made. My daughter's dog loves It. He has very short hair and gets cold easily. He usually wants to cut his walks short in colder weather but when he wears the vest he seems very comfy, enjoys a long walk, and actually struts a bit, LOL. All the ladies at the dog park think he's a stud." —Kim K.

    Price: $16.99 (available in four colors and seven sizes)

    15. An offensive/hilarious card game that'll make you and your friends ROFL.

    Three or more players compete to build funny comics about friendship, violence, sex, and everything in between.

    Promising Review: "This game is hilarious! I got it so that I could play with some friends who were visiting for New Year's and we were all laughing ourselves silly. If you have friends with the right sense of humor (basically people who enjoy/would enjoy Cyanide and Happiness comics) give this a try. Rounds are usually even funnier than Cards Against Humanity. Fair warning though: if you have friends who are easily offended by crude drawings or adult language, they would totally not enjoy this game. The cards are really high quality and don't bend or tear easily." —Anindya Guha

    Price: $24

    16. A bamboo bathtub tray so you can lounge in the tub with your Netflix and drink in the perfect spot.

    Promising Review: "I love my bath tray. It has expandable sides so it fits my tub perfectly. It allows me to read, have my glasses readily available, place my phone in the holder, have my Kindle there to read, and provides space for any bath products, facial products, etc. It is a great accessory for me!" —Adel McGuirk

    Price: $24.99

    17. A set of four food-specific flexible cutting mats for all your food cutting needs.

    Promising Review: "We threw out our hard cutting board after getting these! The flexible cutting boards are not only great because you get four different ones (and labeled!) but they're awesome because you can bend them to slide ingredients into your meals. They're durable, insanely easy to clean, lightweight, and super cheap in cost! We probably will not go back to a hard cutting board because these are so great." —Leia

    Price: $10.85

    18. A stylish reversible tote bag with fun embroidered designs would make a great addition to any outfit.

    Promising Review: "I'm in love with this bag. The wallet is CLUTCH (see what I did there?). It's super convenient and it clips into the bag, so when you're going through airports or public places, you feel secure about it. The bag holds all my stuff without appearing too big. I tuck my yoga mat upright in the bag sometimes. Otherwise, I take my lunch, makeup, water bottle, wrap, etc., in it and it's super convenient. I would DEFINITELY recommend this. It goes with everything. It's a good upgrade for me at a nice price." —Diana Peretti

    Price: $14.99 (available in nine colors)

    19. A badass cookbook written by some foul-mouthed authors who want to help you eat more f*cking veggies. Finally a cookbook that speaks your language!

    Promising Review: "Honestly, this is the first review I've ever written on Amazon, and I'm doing it because this is the BEST purchase I've ever made on Amazon. This is a really amazing book! It's worth every penny if you follow a plant-based diet, are thinking about following a plant-based diet, or just want a fun, delicious cookbook to add variety to your meals. What I absolutely love about this book is that all the measurements are insanely accurate and instructions are thorough. Really, you can't go wrong if you follow the recipes and instructions, spot on. Amazing job, guys! Really, mad props to all your hard work. It has made my life a whole lot easier and tastier. Thank you!" —Hana

    Price: $9.99+

    20. A shiatsu massager to help alleviate some of your muscle soreness and stiffness.

    Promising Review: "This is the best neck massager! I have been seeing a chiropractor for neck pain and this is great supplement for days off. It works perfectly on pressure points and has an auto-reverse feature that is great to avoid over working the muscle. It's easy to use and comfortable." —Kindle Customer

    Price: $39.99

    21. A snap 'n strain clip-on colander versatile and sturdy enough to fit on nearly any pot!

    Promising Review: "BUY IT! You won't regret the decision. This is the best 'gadget' I have in my kitchen! It's easy to use, safe on my pots/pans and cuts way down on the amount of dishes to clean after preparing a meal. I usually use it to drain pasta but have also used it to drain grease from cooked meat. It's an excellent tool for the job! It takes up very little space (in comparison to a colander) in both the dishwasher and my cabinets." —T. Evans

    Price: $13.99

    22. A cozy The North Face jacket you'll want to wear every day!

    Promising Review: "The jacket fits as expected and is amazingly soft inside and out. I hesitated to spend the extra money for The North Face brand when there are many less expensive options available, but my daughter really wanted a North Face, so it was her big birthday gift. The color is gorgeous and the comfort is exceptional, so I don't regret the extra expense." —Mom of 4

    Price: $69.99+ (available in 52 colors and nine sizes)

    23. An coffee table with a top that lifts up for extra hidden storage.

    Promising Review: "I love love love this table more than words can express!!! I have a gray/black theme going on in my living room. The top to this table also lifts up and is great for storing or hiding things. No one even knows that it lifts! When lifting up, use two hands and lift from both ends. Also, make sure not to have anything on the top of it that can fall. The table is also easy to keep clean (I use either Windex or Lysol All-Purpose) but you can't even tell when it's dirty. It looks like REAL marble. I am so in love with this table." —Kimberly Valente

    Price: $89

    24. A pack of six fishnet tights because sometimes a pair of awesome tights can completely make an outfit.

    Promising Review: "Hey ladies (and gents), let me first say these are the best stockings/tights/fishnets I've EVER purchased. They are superb quality and they are not made of cheap material. I am 5'9" 235 pounds and purchased the 3X/4X size. I could have likely gotten away with a1X/2X size, but I'm leaving room for shrinkage when washed if it happens. The shipping was fast. I received the package in the mail in about two days (with Amazon Prime, free delivery). They came well-wrapped together and in their own individual packages. The material isn't flimsy. These stockings are MORE than worth the price. The material feels soft, breathable, and very comfy. I live in Albany, NY, and I would definitely wear these in the fall/winter transition and not be too nervous about the cold." —Roxee

    Price: $23.99 (available in three sizes)

    25. A set of 10 fine point markers to color code your planner or lists and get more organized.

    Promising Review: "Who doesn't love a pack of fine color pens?! What is especially fabulous about this set is the color selection of the pens! I color code my calendar at the office and can carry that over to my planner for my school work. I love that the ink does not bleed over onto the back of the page, regardless of paper weight. These are the best and I highly recommend them!" —Kathi Seattle

    Price: $5.95

    26. A felt letter board as a totally Instagramable photo prop!

    Set includes 10" x 10" felt board, 290 letters/characters, and canvas letter pouch.

    Promising Review: "I love this letter board! The board was nicely packaged and arrived in perfect condition. All the letters were accounted for and I love that it includes not only numbers and letters but many options for punctuation. It comes with a small bag to hold all the letters in, which was great and the letters stay nicely on the board. I have been wanting a letter board for months now and I'm glad I went with this one. You won't be disappointed!" —Setlla Wells

    Price: $19.29 (available in two shapes and three colors)

    27. A set of five reusable storage bags which will save you money and help save the planet.

    Promising Review: "These resealable bags exceeded my expectations. I use at least three of them every day in my lunch and often on the weekends. I love that I am no longer wasting money and filling the landfill with baggies. They are really easy to clean and open, but have a strong seal. I highly recommend these if you are looking for a durable option that's easy to seal and open. I will be ordering some more for my family to use." —Jennifer

    Price: $19.69
