Hair frizzy and dry? SPRAY THIS STUFF ON IT. Boyfriend being a jerk? SPRAY THIS STUFF ON IT. It is a cure-all.

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in two sizes or a value pack).

    Promising review: "These have to be among the most useful gadgets in my kitchen and we use them constantly for open loaves of bread, crackers, rice, and many other types of packaging where you need a secure hold. I no longer save twist ties, those funny square plastic thingies that come with so much packaging. I have ordered additional ones since the kitchen is not the only place I have found them useful." —Connie of GA

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99.

    3. A pack of five tea bags in case you're in a movie-watching or book-reading mood and need a whimsical cup of tea to indulge in simultaneously.

    4. A wireless strapless bra for keeping handy for any off-the-shoulder dresses or tees you may be wearing in the near future. Honestly — having no wire is a major game changer. No more getting poked from that painful (and uncomfortable) underwire.


    Promising review: "So grateful to Lively for making this style!! It’s so comfortable, doesn’t fall down, is secure (so many hooks in the back!!), and doesn’t hurt under my boobs as the day goes on. Could not recommend this enough!!" —Courtney M.

    5. A pair of round circle sunglasses to achieve the Ray-Bans look without the Ray-Bans price tag.


    Promising review: "For the money you can’t beat 'em! These look amazing on my face like a $300 pair of sunglasses. I have tried multiple pairs and this brand looks and feels comparable to a pair of Ray-Bans and Pradas, I have a smaller face and to me this pair fits the best, perfect for my nose and brow line. I couldn’t be happier, just wish there were 6 stars so everyone would know how amazing they are. If you are questioning whether or not they will look as good on you as they do in the photos, yes...yes they do." —Christina

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "I wanted a good-quality denim jacket that would last for years and I hope this is the one. The quality of the denim is great, it's super soft. I like to wear it in the summer when you need an extra layer but making sure it's a breathable material. So far I'm super happy with my new jacket, I would definitely recommend it." —Susana

    Get it from Levi's for $68.60 (originally $98; available in sizes XXS–XL and four colors). 

    7. High-waisted faux-leather shorts with a stretchy paper-bag waistline that'll perfectly cinch over your go-to crop tops and tees. These are a great summer alternative to your leather leggings and are warm weather approved., Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    I personally own these shorts and LOVE them. I can't wait to utilize them in my fall wardrobe! These are a great way to spruce up my outfits by keeping me cooler (not totallyyyyy ready for pants yet), and cinch nicely at the waist so they're perfectly fitted.

    Promising review: "A blogger posted about these leather shorts, and I had to get them and I did not regret it one bit! I am IN LOVE with these. If I could wear them everywhere I probably would. I got a bunch of compliments on them as well. If you’re thinking about ordering them, do it! They will easily become one of your favorite articles of clothing." —Christina Bourgeois

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes women's XS–XXL).

    8. An aesthetically minimal glass tumbler for hosting your morning smoothie or iced coffee. This also has over 21,600+ 5 ☆ star ☆ reviews on Amazon, soooo pretty much this is a vetted win for carrying bevvys.,

    Promising review: "So I’m really surprised how much I like this. Just random things to note: 1) The top has stayed on when knocked over or when my toddler grabs the straw (but I grab it back fast so I’ve never seen her carry it around long by the straw), 2) straw is plastic, body is glass, 3) not heavy at all, love the feel of the silicone sleeve. Moderates temperature, too, which is nice for my cold smoothies." —Kori Hale

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in 42 colors and set amounts).

    9. An LED vanity mirror so your next glam sesh can be accompanied by some bomb lighting. This also has a few storage slots so you can keep your holy-grail foundation within an arm's reach.


    Promising review: "This is a nice, sturdy makeup mirror with good lighting that you can make brighter and dimmer using the touch button on the surface of the mirror. It's pretty light weight and tilt adjustable. The base also serves as a sectioned tray for items. Currently, I have my foundations and skin creams in there. I also have my brushes in there, but those will be relocated since anything longer than about 4 inches will likely fall out." —Amazon reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99.

    10. A disco ball plant holder because the party is wherever the plants are. PLUS, when the light hits it just right, the sparkles are amazingggggg.

    11. A compact sand-repelling blanket that's also waterproof so you can use it while hiking, at the beach, or for a picnic in the park. It even folds up into a super-small carrying pouch., Amazon

    Promising review: "This pocket beach blanket is awesome!! We have one in every car and as my kids just started college, I sent one to their dorms because they are perfect for students! And campus life! I highly recommend this product! It’s so compact and lightweight and super easy to fold it back into its pouch. The quality of the material is great. It’s super soft, definitely waterproof, perfect for picnics, hikes, and the beach, too." —Suzanne Dersahakian

    person holding moisturizer bottle

    Pop on hair as a hydrating hair mask before showering (if your hair gets a bit dry from time to time), add a pop of dewiness to the cheekbones for some highlighting shine, or use on lips and dry patches on the skin as a typical balm. 

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. I use it as an intensive face cream when my skin gets extra dry or just looks dull. It’s thicker than most lotions but melts right into the skin. If I put it on at night, I wake up to healthy, hydrated, glowing skin. It’s great for hands and cuticles, too. I only have to use a pea-sized amount to cover my face so this will last a long time. The fragrance is light and pleasant and fades quickly." —Polly Darton

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49+ (available in three sizes). 

    13. A Maxbone x Bambi raincoat for your pup that'll not only keep them dry on their daily walks, but will have them looking all kinds of chic and magical.

    Maxbone, Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    Wow wow wow has my dog ever looked cuter than he does in this raincoat? Nope, nope he has not (JK he's always adorable). BUT, I can't get over how well made this coat is and how perfectly it fits him. I loathe taking him out in the rain, and I know he HATES the rain as well. This makes trips outside to do his business in a downpour a bit more bearable, and he looks just so darn cute. It cinches at the waist and it's also adjustable on the legs so you can make sure it'll perfectly fit them without them drowning in it. It's all around just the most perfect raincoat imaginable. It's well worth the price.

    Get it from Maxbone for $75 (available in sizes S–XXL).

    Promising review: "When I learned that monthly plant subscriptions exist, I immediately subscribed to House Plant Box. I read the reviews and wasn’t really sure what to expect, but my first plant arrived today (just five days after placing my order) and I’m thrilled. My baby’s tears plant shipped quickly, was well packaged, and had zero damage. The plant was well watered and is full and healthy. I’m super pleased so far and I’m looking forward to many more months of plants." —Chelsea D. 

    Get it from Cratejoy for $15/month.

    Get it from Amanda Deer for $84 (available in sizes 5–9 and gold and silver).

    16. A tube of Glossier Solar Paint for mimicking that gorgeous summer glow that may fade quickly as we progress into fall (cries). A couple dabs of this on the skin will look like it never left.


    Promising review: "This bronzer is absolutely perfect! The lightest shade, Flare, fits my skin color so good. It has a little shine in it, but not like glitter chunks, more of a natural shine. I was a little afraid the color would be too dark, but it is really buildable so you can add more or less to get your perfect shade. The package is cute and the wand is easy to handle. Love it!!" —Matilda K.

    Get it from Glossier for $20 (available in four shades).

    17. A huge set of colorful scrunchies so you'll never be without one again. These come in 60 different colors so you'll have one to match every 'fit.

    reviewer picture of 60 piece scrunchie set

    Promising review: "Great scrunchies at a good price. I love these, use them daily. I have baby-fine hair and it tends to get ripped out with most ponytails. But these are great; they slip right off when you take them out. I blow out my hair in the morning, then just twist my hair into a bun and wrap these around. I leave them in while I apply my makeup and get dressed and then use some light hairspray with the scrunchie still in. They are comfortable. Seem well made." —qinxiaoyang

    Get a set from Amazon for $9.99

    18. A Baby Yoda night-light if your room is in some desperate need of ~galactic glow~ in the wee hours of the night. When in doubt, Baby Yoda will always be there to *light* the way.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. A Revlon One-Step hair dryer that many TikTokers say is a solid dupe for the super-expensive Dyson Airwrap. Now you can finally achieve salon-worthy hair at a fraction of the cost with this easy-to-use styler.,

    Promising review: "I have long, thick 3b/3c/4a (still learning about textures) hair and let me tell you!!! This blow-dryer is the truth. I break my combs and neck blow-drying the traditional way. These bristles make sure your hair doesn’t tangle and every section gets thoroughly dry. I will note that if your hair is like mine, it’s not gonna end up bone straight. However it gets a nice body to it after being blow-dried and you can definitely wear it as is! I blow-dry mine and then twist it for some waves. Easy peasy. I’ve recommended this to all my friends." —SH

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99+ (available in four colors).

    20. A Bluetooth-enabled selfie stick and tripod if you're going sightseeing and want to ensure you can get pics with your companions without having to bother strangers to take them for you.

    The remote control will assist you in taking pics from further away!

    Promising review: "This is one of the coolest little gadgets I've come across in quite a while. I was looking for a little tripod or something similar to hold my phone so that I could take pics or videos with it. This not only functions as a tripod but also a selfie stick! The way it fits together in such a compact form yet quickly and easily extends for use as a selfie stick or tripod is simply ingenious. If that isn't enough, it includes a tiny remote that detaches and functions as a shutter release through the use of Bluetooth. AND it includes a little cable for recharging that remote as needed! This item is offered at a VERY reasonable price for what you get. It even fits my huge iPhone 8 Plus, although it's a bit of a tight fit. But it does work. I like this selfie stick so much that shortly after getting one, I ordered a second as a backup. This thing is great!" —Outdoorman777

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    21. A Conquering that displays an affirming message when spun. This sleek ring will take the place of your fidget spinner so whenever you need a quick thing to focus on (such as when you get a hint of anxiety) take the ring off and give it a spin.

    22. A set of claw-shaped hair clips to channel those Rachel Green vibes that'll keep hair out of your face and effortlessly styled.,

    Promising review: "These hair clips are amazing! They are cute and sturdy. I am able to fit all of my hair in the clip and go about my day without my hair falling down and having to reclip it. That is a first for me! I even did a quick workout and the jumping did not cause my hair clip to fall. If you are looking for a nice hair clip that will stay in place, these are perfect!" –Amanda Davis

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $13.99.

    Get one from ChappyWrap for $135.

    24. Facial and eyebrow razors to keep on top of your brows between your waxing sessions or to forgo them all together. I love these for cleaning around my jawline and my upper lip!

    I always utilize these with a facial serum or moisturizer to make hair removal on my sensitive skin less harsh. They're way more manageable to use than an actual razor and are incredibly satisfying to see how much peach fuzz comes off after each shave.

    Promising review: "I love 💕 these little razors for all that peach 🍑 fuzz. My face looks so smooth now!!! They’re really easy to use. I had no idea there was such a product! My aesthetician used something similar on my face and I thought 💭 I can do that!! So glad I found it!" —Patti16

    Promising review: "These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don't always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. These greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can't beat the price!" —Ash Bash

    Promising review: "I work at a hospital and for the last 18 months have worn a surgical mask or an N95 AND a surgical for my 12-hr days. Needless to say my skin was the worst it’s ever been due to masks, the pressure lines, and the stress. I started these products six weeks ago and my skin/acne is the best it’s ever been even prior to COVID. I am so grateful for these serums." —Franni

    These are made in small batches in Chengdu, Sichuan.

    Get the triple threat set from Fly By Jing for $42.

    30. An Always Pan because in your home, it's probs totally unrealistic to have 795 cookware pans so this will be your holy grail. It has a nonstick surface, comes with a vented top, a mesh basket so you can steam your fave veggies, and a spoon that hooks on to the handle so you'll always have one handy.

    "The first night sleeping on this mattress, my husband and I woke up the next morning praising the mattress and how well we both slept.
