    1. A cold brew maker so you can save a bit of cash now that the weather is getting warmer and you have the perfect excuse to drink even more iced coffee in the comfort of home.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    To make, add coarse ground coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), let it brew for 12–24 hours, and serve. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our review of the Tayeka cold brew maker!

    Promising review: "I found this in a BuzzFeed article and decided to get it as a last-minute, thoughtful but not expensive Christmas present for my husband. In all our five years together, I’m not sure I’ve ever bought him something he loved this much. We use it every single day, and we have an infant, so it’s constantly working overtime with us. It’s easy to use, and we just throw it in the dishwasher once a week or so. Definitely worth it, and I’ve recommended it to all my coffee lover friends. Will buy ten more if something ever happens to it." —K J

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

    2. Glossier's hydrating lip balm packed with antioxidants to nourish dry lips that can cause discomfort when severely chapped. It'll lock in moisture without to transform lips from flakey to smooth.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "Asides from the fact that this balm is delicious, smooth and stays put for a long time. It actually heals dry skin! I have a habit of chewing on my lips and had chapped, flaky, and crusty lips whenever I wasn’t wearing gloss or balm. The difference with this product is that it has HEALED MY LIPS. Yup. Not just a temporary fix, but actually healed them. I’m hooked for life!" —annastani

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight flavors).

    3. A gel memory foam seat cushion for more support because we all know sitting upright for eight hours a day is actually very uncomfortable *and* kinda difficult (slouchers, unite). This is designed to take pressure off your tailbone, realigning your spine and evenly distributing weight.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I really like this product. I was hesitant to order this online without touching it, but went ahead and bought it anyway. Sitting on it helps tremendously, giving me support everywhere I need it and taking pressure off where I don't (lumbar and sacroiliac joint). I work remotely from home and sit eight hours a day which is difficult. This cushion has been GREAT so I can sit for long stretches without my back being in severe pain." —LoraKittles

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 and get the back pillow for $24.95.

    4. And memory foam armrest pads that'll provide a little cushion in an unsuspecting place. Look at this as an alternative to resting your forearms on the hard edge of a table.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the perfect armrests! My toddler kept biting on the armrest, and was ripping pieces off of it. I originally bought another cheaper brand and had to return it because it didn't fit. The lesson here? Quality matters. They fit perfectly on my gaming chair. The pads on the armrest are thick memory foam and OH MY GOSH they are COMFORTABLE! I am such a satisfied customer. Before buying these, the armrests were never even used, they were kinda awkward but when I added these, all of a sudden I find myself using my armrests all the time. It gave them the perfect height. They're soft." —Dominique S.

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    5. Blue-light blocking glasses so your eyes aren't absolutely killing you by the end of the week if your work consists of one too many screens. These will filter out harsh blue light that may otherwise increase eye irritation and headaches.

    @zennioptical via Instagram / Via instagram.com

    I wear blue-light blocking glasses and absolutely love them. I was experiencing headaches nearly every day and my eyes felt so strained by the time I got home. Once I started wearing my glasses, I felt such a relief by the end of the first week. My eyes weren't as tired and I didn't feel as much pain. Now since I've been wearing them for months, I've experienced very few headaches and minimal eye irritation.

    6. A fidget tool to help you work out any stress or anxiety you may be feeling from, uh, the current state of the world! It's small so you can maneuver it with one hand.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am an adult with anxiety and I fidget, usually with pens but this gadget is preferable to pens and has the benefit of not driving my co-workers nuts. To play with this toy, you can 'roll' it by rotating the links end over end, over and over in your hand, which is soothing. You can also grip just one of the links and shake it, flipping it back and forth, making a nice rattling sound. The best thing about the flippy chain is that it is small and flat and slips easily into a pocket." —Kara Stenberg

    Get one from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four colors and as a set of two).

    7. A yoga mat so you're not slipping and sliding during your morning stretches. Finding your balance = letting go of those stressors that tie you down.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    The textured grooves will give you something to hold onto while you stretch and relax. It's a great option for beginner to intermediate yogis.

    Promising review: "I'm the type of person who reads a lot of reviews and agonizes over every purchase. Plus I noticed some reviews said that they had problems with slippage on this mat, so I was very hesitant but I needed a mat so I took a chance. This mat is as nice as a brand-name yoga mat I received as a gift many years ago. And is just like the mats at the yoga center. It does not slip and has a nice grip to it. I have absolutely no complaints and am quite happy with it. Plus it's a bit thicker than regular mats which helps my aging body a lot on wood floors. It lies completely flat on the floor and the color is pretty and much like what my monitor depicted. Go ahead and buy it!" —Valiant

    Get it from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in 38 styles).

    It was also selected as the low-price pick for the best yoga mats on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    8. A baby sloth mug that'll make your morning cup of java that much more enjoyable. It's like a guaranteed smile every morning you open your kitchen cabinet and see it sitting there.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I gifted this to my best friend who loves sloths and she adores it! It’s really big and can hold a lot of liquid, too!" —Liv0614

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $16.

    9. A 32-ounce hydration-tracking water bottle to keep you on-track throughout your day if you can never seem to drink enough on a regular schedule. The bottle is leak-free, so you can throw it in your bag for all-day use without the fear of spills.

    Amazon

    The bottle also comes with a fruit diffuser so you can flavor your water if you get a little too bored of drinking plain water day in and day out.

    Promising review: "I do not drink enough water, especially at work. I love this thing. It has really helped me stay on-track. I use the times on the side to make sure I'm drinking water to the line level. It's a great visual. I love the hand strap so I can carry it and my laptop and whatever from meeting to meeting. The little snap makes sure the lid stays closed even if I drop it. Haven't tried the infuser yet, but it's big enough for a few strawberries (cut up) or cucumbers or whatever you want." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two colors).

    10. A bathtub pillow that'll suction onto your tub so you can decompress in a soothing bath at the end of a long day. The ~air mesh technology~ will conform to your head, neck, and shoulders, plus it's quick-drying and mold- and mildew-resistant.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This bath pillow is amazing! I've been using it almost every night for about a month and it is super comfortable!! It was easy to wash and hang dry. The suction cups are still as strong as they were when it first arrived. I wish I had gotten it sooner and would absolutely recommend it!!" —Cathy H.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    11. Puppy pads to help your pooch with indoor accidents if they're indoors for longer periods of time. The super absorbent pads will turn liquids into gel upon contact, so you don't have to spend time scrubbing the floor underneath.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    My family bought these for our Cocker Spaniel puppy and they were incredibly helpful. They helped potty train him, and when we weren't home to take him outside, he learned to consistently go on the pad instead of the carpet.

    Promising review: "Our puppy loves these potty pads! They definitely work. Our puppy was already pretty good about not going inside the house, but he still prefers to use these pads! They are super absorbent and don’t leave any foul smelling odors. They are a GREAT value for the amount, at the pet store they cost twice the price. They are a perfect size, as well. Overall I would recommend these to any puppy or dog owner who doesn’t have access to an outdoor area or is training their puppy!" —Piper T.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.49+ (available in four styles and packs).

    12. A wellness planner, because self care is incredibly important! You can track physical habits, nutrition, and day-to-day feelings to better understand where you're at mentally and what actionable things you can do to better your well-being.

    bando

    Promising review: "This is the perfect planner to gather all your daily thoughts and moods!" —Jessica B.

    Get it from ban.do for $29.95 (available in two styles).

    13. A 15-piece makeup brush set with ultra-soft bristles so applying your makeup will become a breeze. The marbled handles and copper accents mean you'll actually want to leave the brushes out on your bathroom countertop.

    Amazon

    The set includes 14 types of brushes: bronzer, powder, liquid foundation, blush, flat contour, flat angled foundation, eyeshadow (it comes with two), eyelash, angled eyebrow brush, eyeliner, blending, concealer, small shader, and eye smudge.

    Promising review: "I do my own makeup with these brushes everyday, and when I am hired to do makeup for weddings, prom, photo shoots, etc. I ALWAYS bring this brush set. They have every size I would need for eye makeup, and they work great. And not to mention they are so cute; I love the marble!! I highly recommend these brushes to anyone!" —Brooke Johnson

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two styles).

    14. And! Eyeshadow shields that'll catch residue that falls onto your cheeks during application. And it'll create that sharp, straight edge you've been trying to achieve.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don’t know how I've done my eye makeup without these my whole life! They help so much with eyeshadow fallout it’s insane! There’s two stickers on them, but I only do the small top ones since I like to do my foundation before eyeshadow and it helps catch all my fallout! They’re very sticky and sometimes take off some of my foundation, but I’ve found if you first tape it on your hand then onto your face it helps!" —Amazon Customer

    Get 100 shields from Amazon for $8.99.

    15. A pair of round sunglasses so you can properly accessorize on your solo strolls (and have some protection from blinding rays).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great glasses. Cool and nicely made. Great cover and it came with a cleaning cloth and a sturdy case. It even included a tightening tool if they ever loosen up." —LORIANN Salvitti

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 17 styles).

    16. A foam roller that'll target seriously sore muscles and help increase blood flow, enhance flexibility, and extend range of motion. This one is made from high-density foam so it'll support your body weight and won't lose its shape.

    Amazon

    I've tried foam rolling before and in the beginning, it can hurt! The key is the more you do it, the better it feels and the less tense your muscles are.

    Foam rollers can be used on your back, calves, and thighs. If you're confused about how to properly use a foam roller, there are tons of instructional videos on YouTube to check out.

    Promising review: "This foam roller literally saves my life (and my quads) every time I lift or do a hard workout. I can tell a significant difference in soreness and recovery when I do roll, and I definitely will be sore for days longer if I don't. Overall, the roller is good quality and isn't breaking apart in any way." —ajcope

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four sizes and seven styles).

    17. A dish squeegee since everyday there's a new dirty dish in the sink just waiting to be cleaned. Its curved shape will conquer bowls, while its study grip allows for thorough cleaning of baked-on grime.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It’s one of those things you feel silly buying and then use every single time you wash dishes. I love how it gets all the sauce or grease from plates. It’s bendable at the ends, so it can really curve to fit your dishes. Love it." —Danielle Hernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    18. Oil-blotting sheets so you never again have to worry about a greasy face halfway through the day. One sheet will soak up any excess shine, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.

    amazon.com

    And they won't strip away your makeup in the blotting process! Trust me — I own these and use them everyday. They're a great way to touch-up if you're feeling extra greasy and oily.

    Promising review: "I've been using drugstore blotting papers for a long time. I wish I had found this brand sooner. First, the cases are sturdier than others, so they don't flatten and tear in my purse. The bamboo sheet is strong yet soft, and the paper seems to absorb more oil than the others I've used. No matter how long my day is, with these papers my face still feels fresh and clean throughout." —Kindle Customer

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $6.95+ (available in three styles and in larger packs).

    19. Garnier Fructis anti-frizz serum made with argan oil and apricot, because frizz can rear its head at any point in the day. This light serum will help to smooth out any stray pieces, leaving your hair silkier than ever before. And the huge bonus? It won't leave your roots feeling or looking greasy.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    I use this serum in the morning right before I head out the door and I love it. It helps the baby hairs around the crown of my head lay flat, instead of sticking straight up.

    Promising review: "Terrific product. I squirt a few drops in my palms, then I brush fingers and hands right through my short, but full crop of graying hair. Makes these tresses look ever so shiny and silky while keeping it all in place. Don't even need to use hairspray. I especially like the fact that it's not greasy, nor gummy, nor does it have an odor. It just has a pleasant and unassuming scent. Most of all, this product enhances the natural wave and light curl that I still have. For me, it's best used right after a shampoo and a towel dry." —Valerie C. Bartolo

    Get it from Amazon for $4.94 ( available in larger packs).

    20. An Amazon Fire TV stick that'll provide access to thousands of channels and apps, plus over 500,000 movies and TV episodes. So yes, you can watch reruns of The Office before bed each night.

    Amazon

    You can enjoy Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, NBC, and more. It also grants you access to live TV and sports from AMC, HGTV, ESPN, and Fox.

    Promising review: "The Amazon Fire Stick is an amazing device. Television services are moving away from cable and satellite and are moving toward internet-based streaming formats. In fact, it provides you with every kind of app you can think of and does it at an affordable price. It plugs into the HDMI jack on your television and also comes with a power adapter that plugs into the wall. In order to work, you need to connect the device to your Wi-Fi. Movies and shows displayed by the device are typically in HD quality with good picture and sound quality. It is easy to set up and use and I was up and running in minutes." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    And check out my full review of the Amazon Fire TV stick.

    21. A leather wristlet with RFID-blocking technology so your sensitive information stays safe. It's got 17 (!!!) credit card slots and an ID slot, too. The high-quality leather and wax finish means it will withstand drops, spills, and daily wear-and-tear.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very well-made wallet. Stitching and zipper are very secure and sturdy. It has plenty of room for my credit cards as well as my checkbook, cash, and my iPhone. It does the job I need it to and looks nice, too. I am happy with this purchase." —Meline Knago

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in 27 colors).

    22. A pack of basic cooking utensils that are both durable and heat-resistant for your everyday needs. Flipping burgers? Check. Making pasta? Check. Plus, the handles are made from wood for a sleeker look.

    Amazon

    The set includes tongs, basting brush, whisk, pasta server, ladle, slotted spoon, slotted turner, spatulas, utensil crock, and turners.

    Promising review: "I bought this set because I was tired of having so many different utensils for my kitchen that were all from different brands, of varying shapes and materials, etc. With this set now I have all the same brand and they look and feel great. I love the silicone they are made of as it is firm enough to cook with, but soft enough to not damage my pans. I like that the handles are made of wood as well; it gives the utensils a really nice feel." —M. St Peter

    Get the 14-piece set from Amazon for $28.99.

    23. And a Dash rapid egg cooker, because a nutritious, hearty omelet shouldn't take an eternity to make (or be super difficult). It'll serve up hard-boiled, poached, or scrambled eggs in just minutes.

    Amazon

    And don't worry if you're in the shower when your meal is done – the cooker has an auto-off to prevent overcooking and a buzzer to alert you. The removable trays are also dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I love hard-boiled eggs for protein, especially when I’m on the go as a student/worker, but it’s hard to wait for the water to boil then put In the eggs and get ready all at the same time. This cooker is amazing!! Saves me time, it’s quick and I don’t have to watch it while it cooks — I can go get ready and then I hear a loud buzzer notifying me when the eggs are done! (The buzzer is really loud; sounds like a basketball game buzzer.) I was surprised how fast the eggs cooked." —OnAJourney

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in five colors).

    And check out our spotlight on the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker here.

    24. A 3-in-one slicer so you can cut apples, dice potatoes, and core mangos without overloading your kitchen drawer with unnecessary gadgets. A daily nutritious snack is just around the corner!

    Food52

    Promising review: "It beats other slicers out there. It is heavy-duty and has different discs for different fruits which makes it so useful." —Makduda
