1. Metal pull chains so you can finally stop the guessing game when it comes to turning your fan on versus the fan light. You consistently choose wrong, so why not make the choice obvious moving forward?

2. Silicone soup freezer trays with four fill lines to help you create the perfect frozen meal to keep on hand throughout the week. It also comes with a tight-fit lid so the soup won't spill out into your freezer if jostled before frozen.

3. An insect sticky trap that'll rid your home of annoying gnats, flies, midges, and whiteflies. You can stick them directly into soil so your lil baby plants will stay insect-free! You're a devoted plant parent, we understand.

4. A jewelry cleaning brush, because no one should deal with dull diamonds. It just takes a few seconds of scrubbing with the soft-tipped brush that'll dispense a formula containing polishing agents and micro-fine cleansers to achieve that dazzling shine.

5. Parchment paper squares with nifty handles so you can get your baked goods out cleanly instead of using a fork and knife to desperately lift your perfectly cooked cake. Even with the use of sprays and butter, sometimes thing ~stick~ and you need a bit of a lift to get everything out of the pan on the first try.

6. A three-tiered drying rack for items that can't conveniently be hung on hangers like larger sweaters or or delicates. It can hold up to 10 pounds and feature mesh bands to keep clothes secure if placed outside in the sun.

7. A flat colander to lay at at the bottom of your sink to catch all the food scraps that otherwise fall down the drain and cause a clog. It can also be used for defrosting so water doesn't pool around the chicken your mom asked you take out of the freezer a few hours ago!

8. A PopGrip Slide you can readjust to different positions depending on where your hand rests while holding your phone. It can slid down to the bottom of your case or repositioned to the middle if you're using it as a stand. And if can be completely removed if you don't feel like having it on for a while.

9. A Kangaroo water and climate sensor to keep on the floor that can detect changes in temperature or water should a pipe (or your washing machine) unexpectedly leak. It's ideal for basements, laundry rooms, or any area that experiences high humidity.

10. A tabletop gift wrapping tool so you can whip through boxes like a real mall pro. The clamps can be secured to any table and will hold the roll of wrapping paper, plus one clamp will hold your tape. All you ever need will be in one convenient place!

11. And! A sliding wrapping paper cutter that'll give you that clean cut every single time. No more fumbling with scissors or getting caught with the blade halfway, causing the paper to rip right in front of your eyes.

12. A Goodful digital food scale with a conversion chart etched directly onto the top to guide you mid-recipe. No more sticky fingerprints all over your phone as you try to figure out how many cups are in a pint. Or teaspoons in a tablespoon.

13. Glossier's Brow Flick that'll help define your brows in a natural way. You can increase your arch, add color and definition in areas lacking hair, and extend the tail of your brow for a fuller look.

14. A hair finishing cream to help tame those annoying little hairs that surround your face and fly around no matter the weather or how much you try to control them. The smoothing effect is immediate, so you'll accomplish that sleek bun in just a matter of seconds. No extra time added to your morning routine necessary!

15. A Fur-Zoff pet hair remover for carpet, couches, clothing, and bedding. Just imagine a household and car that's not covered in pet hair. It'll sweep up hair instantly, so you can run it over the couch before guests come over.

16. Five Two cookware that'll make meal prep an enjoyable experience for once. Built with stay-cool, non-slip handles and built-in strainers from non-stick, stainless steel, you won't be stuck scraping the pan during cleanup. The lids are made from tempered glass so they won't crack, won't warp, and are super lightweight.

17. A Behr Simple Pour lid, because up until now you've been attacking paint cans with a screwdriver, trying to get the lids off and never being able to reseal them afterwards. The pour lid allows for zero mess, too.

18. Coty Airspun oil-reducing and setting powder you can use on top of your makeup to soften the overall look of your skin and reduce shiny buildup. It can also be used as a foundation to even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of pores and blemishes.

19. Zesty Paws allergy supplements for dogs that suffer from allergies, itching, and digestive issues. Each bite contains vitamins, protein, fiber, and antioxidants to support natural immune defenses to keep your lil fur ball healthy.

20. Nail and cuticle oil made from jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E that'll target weak nails to restore strength and soften cuticles. If your nails are constantly breaking or peeling, this is for you!

21. A Smart Funnel to help you transfer liquids without having to annoyingly hold the bottle. Now you can transfer family pack shampoos and conditioners from Costco without killing your arms.

22. Bed sheet fasteners that'll help you neatly make your bed (possibly for the first time in your life). The metal clips grasp onto your fitted sheet so it stays in place no matter how much you toss and turn.

23. Slow cooker liners so you can minimize cleanup time post-meal. They'll prevent leaking fluids and spills — and hours of scrubbing.

24. A silicone baking mold, because spending all that time making egg muffins or cupcakes only to have all the bottoms rip off is way too frustrating. The molds are freezer-, dishwasher-, and oven-safe, so they're super versatile.

25. A silicone tool holster so you can confidently rest your straightener or curling iron in a place that won't catch fire. Yes, you turned it off, but with this holder you won't have to worry about it marking up your countertop.

26. Avarelle tea tree and calendula oil–infused pimple patches that'll clear up pesky breakouts overnight by sucking out all the gunk and pus trapped underneath the skin. Gone are the days of freaking out over your latest blemish.

27. A cutlery organizer, because you've definitely got your set messily thrown into a kitchen drawer. This organizer will make use of vertical space, leaving more horizontal space in your drawer for other utensils.

28. A bottle of Feed-N-Wax wood polish so you can rid of scuffs, water marks, and anything else lingering on your tables within 20 minutes of application. It'll polish and add a protective layer to prevent the wood from once again drying out and fading.
