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

    1. A cold shoulder dress so at least some part of you can be cold in the summer heat.

    Promising review: "This dress is absolutely adorable! I purchased a size small. I’m 5'7", 133lbs, with 32DD chest and it fit perfectly! I'm very happy with this purchase! It came a little wrinkled, but nothing I cane iron or steam out. The material is worth the price, very soft, and comfy. It is pretty wide and baggy. I am impressed with how long the sleeves are.. I struggle with sleeve length for my long arms and this had longer sleeves. LOVE IT! Highly recommend. It's sexy yet subtle. I want one in every color!" —Mamabb18

    Price: $12.58+ (available in 25 colors, sizes S–XL)

    2. A 20-jar revolving spice rack with free spice refills for five years!!! I mean, what more could you ask for?

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore my spice rack. I cook all the time, and bake even more. I have a relatively small kitchen, and this is a great rack for the culinary artist in all of us. It comes with an amazing variety of spices and a certificate for refills. There are actually very few spices I have had to purchase outside of it, as it had virtually everything I ever could have needed. My favorite thing was unpacking all the spices and smelling them. I recommend this to anyone who has been putting off a spice rack, and although it will take up space on a counter, it will free up space in your cabinets and ultimately save your money." —Liz Doss

    3. A large canvas tote bag you can use at the grocery store so you don't accumulate thousands of plastic bags.

    Promising review: "Love, love, LOVE this bag. I purchased two to begin with, and will definitely be getting more in the future. They are very roomy and I can fit a lot of groceries in when I go shopping. One alone can easily withstand the weight of two or three gallons of milk which just makes the whole shopping process and bringing it home to my apartment so much easier. I can also use this bag for so many other things like traveling, bringing towels/toys/clothes along to the beach, or to go swimming. They will last a long time and provide a lot of uses. Worth the cost." —Lisa Borth

    Price: $12.99 (available in 10 colors)

    4. A three-tier standing basket to make your house look like your favorite farmer's market.

    Promising review: "I received this basket set today and I have to say it is beautiful and holds a whole lot more fruit then I ever expected. It's awesome! Takes up a very small foot print and keeps my counters clean. I even have bananas hanging from the top. Perfect!" —Supergymmom

    Price: $57.99

    5. A T-shaped pet tunnel your cat will love to play in... or just sit and hide in.

    Promising review: "If I could give it 10 stars I would! This is the best cat toy ever. I read one of the reviews about a user getting it to introduce a kitten to a older cat and I was bringing home two little bundles of joy to my very shy two-year-old. He wasn't sure about the newbies until I unwrapped this and almost instantly as it hit the floor there were three cats in it, one in each tunnel opening. Their deep friendship started that moment! Now they are inseparable except for when one or two are sleeping in it. They play with it daily and when I'd rather have them in another room, I simply move the tunnel and pretty soon they follow. The little toy was torn down pretty quickly but that was part of the fun. It is well-made to put up with three very industrious toy destroyers. They seem to like the noise it makes and the big one gets inside and moves it across the room. He's a pretty big guy so I think it is suitable for most cats as well as kittens. Thanks for a great product!" —MSAZ

    Price: $11.99

    6. A John Frieda hair serum for taming the inevitable frizzball that is your hair on humid summer days.

    Promising review: "This product works so well!!! My hair is naturally very frizzy and tangled, especially with the humidity rising now that it's almost summer. Before I was just hoping it'll go away if I just straighten my hair and put heat protectants on it. That didn't work, about 30 minutes later it would just become frizzy again, which annoyed me. I hated feeling the need to get rid of the frizz by straightening it over and over. I read all the other reviews about this and majority says it works wonders so I ordered it and washed my hair then applied it while damp. After that I started to blow dry with cool air and I immediately started noticing a difference than how I usually blow dried it. After I straightened it I was scared that it would start to frizz back up again and I ended up wasting my money. BUT IT DIDN'T! My hair is still soft, silky and straightened more than usual with no frizz! It's holding up so well! THIS PRODUCT IS WORTH THE COST I'M TELLING YOU. Although I was hoping the bottle would be a bit bigger it's still worth it, once this runs out I'll still go out and buy another." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $8.99

    7. A set of grilling accessories sure to turn your backyard into the go-to bbq spot.

    Promising review: "I just received my grill set this week and I must say it looks like very great quality and aesthetically beautiful. I love the stainless steel as it looks great and is easy to clean. I love the fact that it comes with corn holders and a case. Good stuff here and if you are looking for grilling equipment I recommend you look no further." —Brian Mercado

    Price: $26.99

    8. A tea organizer that'll help you eliminate unnecessary boxes in your pantry and organize all your tea in one place.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because I thought it would be a great way to clean up the leaning tower of tea boxes that was forming both in the pantry and on the counter. This did just that!!! I had no issues getting any of my tea bags in, sure I was able to fit more of one kind than another but no issues. The only thing that didn't make it in here were the herbal tea bags but only because they aren't individually sealed and you cant tell whats what. So those stayed in their little boxes. But all of my other teas are now neatly displayed and its nice to see everything you have right there instead of searching through a pile of boxes. Nice and sturdy construction. I was worried it would be flimsy and cheap, but it is not. If you are an avid tea drinker with a plethora of teas to choose from, this is handy!" —Cherish Carter

    Price: $24.99

    9. A glass water bottle because some people swearrr that everything taste better from a glass.

    Promising review: "Can't really ask for a better water bottle. Very well engineered design. First off, drinking anything out of a glass is just so much better taste wise. Where most glass sport water bottles miss their mark is that the part that touches your lips is still plastic. While this provides the best features in a sport water bottle (i.e. push-button auto-flip lid and easy secure lid-lock), it also allows the water to go straight from the glass to your mouth. Another great feature is the engineering of the rubber sheath. While I was originally worried that the rubber was too thin on the sides, I realize the genius of the design in that it's only thick where it needs to be in case it falls. It really only has thick rubber circling the bottom and top edges, keep the girth and weight of the bottle down. The side rubber is really only for grip, which also works perfectly; this will not slide out of your hand. Last thing, the thumb loop is also designed very well. It is sturdy, flexible, comfortable, and super easy to slide your finger in and out." —Nelio

    Price: $14.99 (available in nine colors)

    10. A duffle bag that can hold tons of clothes but fold up really tiny when it's not in use.

    Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag! Did I say, LOVE?! Well I LOVED it so much that I bought 10! Yep! you read that right 10! My husband and I moved to Europe and we were allowed to bring 10 bags. I thought these bags would be great to be seen at the airport, which they were. We traveled through four airports and not one of our bags had a hole, not one bag had any zipper issues. I HIGHLY recommend these bags! My favorite feature is that they break down to literally nothing, we threw all our green bags into one of our hard shell suitcases that don't break down for SUPER easy storage!" —Brittany McAnally

    Price: $24.99 (available in 13 colors)

    11. A makeup organizer sure to be the perfect spot for all your makeup essentials.

    Promising review: "This is a great bag! It's the perfect size to carry the makeup essentials for vacation or a weekend away. It's a silky thick material and can be compressed down when not in use to fit in a drawer or anywhere. The zippers are great quality and so is the stitching. It has two zippers on each section just like the picture. The handle is very sturdy and I couldn't see it ever breaking. The mirror comes attached and it's a great mirror (not distorted). It holds a lot of makeup and some eyeshadow quads but probably not larger palettes. The slots for the brushes are perfect sizes for my everyday brushes but my giant powder brush is a tiny bit too tall. I love this makeup bag and look forward to using it when I go on vacay in July. I definitely recommend this!!!" —Tiffany Davis

    Price: $6.99

    12. A bag of dog treats created by the famous chef, Rachael Ray, so your pup can eat even better than you do.

    Promising review: "My dogs LOVE these!! I have four doggie babies of various sizes and they all enjoy these bones. Although it was on the larger side for my Yorkie, he enjoyed it too. They are pretty soft and easy to chew. With a little force, I was able to break them in half with my hands. They smell yummy! I find that they smell like seasoned gravy. My larger dogs ate them pretty fast because they are so soft, but it kept my Yorkie busy for quite a while. He felt like a big boy because he was able to chew on a big boy bone. I will be buying many more for a tasty treat." —Dana F.

    Price: $5.72

    13. A 10-piece non-stick cookware set that'll have everything you need for whipping up meals worthy of a 5-star restaurant.

    Set includes two skillets, a stock pot, a sauté pan, two sauce pans, and four lids.

    Promising review: "I did some pretty extensive research regarding various pot sets, materials, brands, etc. I finally settled on this set, and so far I don't regret it! I've had these pots for three weeks now, and can say that they are sturdy, easy to clean, and look very nice. I have found them to be dishwasher safe so far, but try to hand wash them as often as I can, just to avoid the potential for damage. I've used all but one piece of the set so far, and don't have any complaints. If you're looking for a good deal on quality pots and pans, I would recommend this set." —TAllstun

    Price: $101

    14. A shoe rack bench so you can stop hopping around to get your shoes on. Just have a seat and put them on... easy peasy!

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I just put it together this weekend and it spiffied the area by the front door right up. The chair is sturdy enough to accommodate two guests at one time, so no more need to do the one foot hop while putting on or taking off shoes. The cushion is covered with this microfiber type material and is pretty firm. It's not uncomfortable to sit on, but definitely not a chair meant to stay on forever, which is perfect because that's not the point of this seat. The fiancee and I are happy with it. Recommend!" —Diego Cafe

    Price: $47.99

    15. A memory foam pillow that may make you stay in bed all day long.

    Promising review: "I purchased this pillow because I tend to have a lot of neck issues, which leave me with headaches. This pillow came rolled up and almost like vacuum packed but it expanded very quickly. There was absolutely no smell that came from the package which was amazing because I've had some pillows come out of the plastic and smell very strange. Its a medium firm pillow, not too firm though. The pillow has a removable cover that you can wash. One side of the pillow cover is really soft and silky and the other side is just like regular material. The silky side feels really cool to the touch and is made for summer sleeping and the regular side is made for winter sleeping. It's fine to sleep on your side or your back with no issues. After sleeping on this pillow I found it it was very comfortable and didn't wake up with a stiff neck. I would definitely purchase this pillow again." —Heather D Hurlbert

    Price: $29.99

    16. An adjustable one-piece to help you feel like the hottest thing on the beach... even hotter than the sun!

    Promising review: "I NEVER look good in swimsuits. But I thought that I’d give this one a chance based on other reviews from women that had already bought it. I was blown away at how beautiful this made me feel. I wear a size 18-22 depending upon the clothing. I bought the 20-22 size and it was just right. I may buy more in other colors!" —Marisa H.

    Price: $14.66+ (available in 21 colors, sizes S–2XL)

    17. A hanging lounge chair for midday naps by the pool.

    Promising review: "I love this lounger! When I received the package containing the lounger in the mail I was at first very overwhelmed with the size of the box. It was a whopping 79 pounds! I should not have worried. Upon opening the package I was relieved to find that all the parts were securely wrapped and very well made. Assembly took me about two hours but the product has everything you need with easy to understand instructions. Best of all is relaxing in this oasis on my patio! The lounger has a gentle rocking/bouncing motion that makes for the best naps. The fabric is tough and the built in cushion and head rest are very comfortable. The attached umbrella is great and adjustable so I can re-position it depending on the position of the sun. This product is extremely well made and is enjoyed by the whole family!" —C.T.Mallier

    Price: $154.94+ (available in three colors)

    18. A titanium hair straightener that heats up in just 30 seconds so it's pretty much ready to go when you are.

    Promising review: "I was blown away by the quality of this flat iron for the low price I bought it for. I thought I knew exactly what I was buying when I purchased it but when I opened it up and started familiarizing myself with it, I couldn't believe the options that I had. For starters, it heats up literally in seconds. There's no waiting for the iron to slowly get to the right temperature, especially if you're short on time. Also, there are settings according to the condition of your hair and the iron will adjust the heat according to that. So helpful! One of the best irons out there from my experience. Plus the packaging is really nice so you can store it in a velvet bag and nice looking box." —Allisflowing

    Price: $35.06

    19. An open toe sandal that'll look great with every outfit in your closet!

    Promising review: "I am in love with these! I had found many styles like this on Pinterest that are very on-trend this season. looked on this site to try to find something similar. They do not look cheap at all, much more high-end looking than they cost. They fit my size 9 feet perfectly. You could wear the shoes with a dress or with any sort of casual summer outfit. Because I am tall, I'm always looking for flat sandals that are also cute. These ones do the job. In addition they have some cushioning on the soles that many of the flat sandals lack. I would highly recommend these shoes!" —2Legitt

    Price: $17.99+ (available in 23 colors, sizes 5–11)

    20. A handheld clothing steamer to take your clothes from wrinkly mess to perfectly polished!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a new steamer to replace a different brand that started to leak. After reading the reviews I decided to purchase this one. I am thrilled with the purchase. First it's ready to use within seconds. The water tank is easy to remove and fill. It holds steam long enough to do numerous items. The steam flow is stronger than the other one I had. The rotating cord is another plus. One of the features that's different from my previous steamer is the trigger for the steam. The older one constantly created steam which was challenging and I had to be careful where I placed it. With the Secura you control the flow of the steam by using the trigger. All in all, it's a great item." —Drake

    Price: $25.99

    21. A stylish picture frame to display your awesome photography skills.

    Promising review: "Gorgeous picture frame! It took a second to figure out how to put the photo in the frame, but once I did it was very easy. The cooper is gorgeous and matches perfectly with my rose gold desk décor. It came in perfect condition as well. Very pleased!" —Hannahjco

    Price: $9.99+ (available in five sizes and four colors)

    22. A jewelry cabinet with mirror for organizing your impressive jewelry collection.

    Promising review: "This arrived extremely well packaged by the manufacturer. It is well designed and well made. The materials appear to be very good quality. It is sturdy, attractive, and inexpensive. Everything fit perfectly. The interior is well laid out allowing you to organize the jewelry very well. And most importantly, my wife loves it." —Hawki Pierce

    Price: $106.99 (available in two colors)

    23. An adjustable floor lamp so sleek and stylish you'll want one to light up every room.

    Promising review: "I needed an inexpensive lamp for my home office. This was the perfect choice for me. The upright lamp lights up a dim wall and the smaller lamp shines directly on a project table placed on the side of it. Using bright white LED bulbs, the combination really helps light up the area when working at the project table. The silver matte finish of the lamp and the crisp white plastic shades look modern and nice. While I haven't had to do so yet, I will clean the plastic lamp shades in the top rack of my dishwasher and this will keep them nice and bright. Great purchase for my needs. I may buy another one for my sewing room." —Melinda Walker

    Price: $29.99 (available in four colors)
