    17. I'm honestly upset that I only found out about this flameless USB-powered lighter a couple of weeks ago.

    26. The more often I see this relaxing weighted blanket, the more I want to own it.

    Amazon / Via

    27. And last but most definitely not least, I absolutely *had* to include this cult-status air fryer!
