    Promising review: "They work as advertised. I use them for my AirPods, iPhone, and iPad Pro." —Lydia Kimble-Wright

    Get 24 from Amazon for $16.99.

    2. A 10-foot long charging chord for your phone in case there are no end tables in sight or outlets super close by. You'll be able to still scroll through TikTok while your phone is charging with this super-lengthy lifesaver.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "The outlet to my bed is pretty far away, about 10 feet, so I needed a long cord and this fit my needs perfectly. It seems that the cable is pretty sturdy and the charging rate is pretty fast so overall I’m pretty pleased with the product. I would definitely recommend buying the cable if you are in need of a long cable. Plus it comes in packs of two so you can either give one to your friend or use it for other situations where you require a long cable. The cable is also braided so it makes it feel like it is pretty sturdy." —Mimi Rhee

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. A handy device so whoever's turn it is to feed the dog will know whether they were fed yet for the day and they don't accidentally get two meals...although I'm sure your pet wouldn't complain, LOL.

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us who were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95+.

    4. A cute hanging basket if you can't be bothered to nail a shelf to your bathroom wall but still need a spot to house your skincare needs. You'll be thoroughly impressed by how many products you can house in this cute basket and how sturdy it is.

    StringSchickShop / Etsy

    StringSchickShop is a small business based out of Ornbau, Germany, with a wonderful selection of crocheted items in some of the most darling colors imaginable. If you particularly need a new basket this shop is for you.

    Promising review: "Super-pretty basket. Use it as storage for children's hats, etc. in the cloakroom." —Jessica

    Get it from StringSchickShop on Etsy for $17.13+ (available in three sizes and 15 colors).

    5. 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. Honestly, if this isn't the holy grail of pans I'm not sure what is...

    Our Place, Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell loves her Our Place pan:

    "I have and love this pan! It just feels really nice to hold. The nesting spoon is absolutely genius, everything cooks evenly, and food just glides right off with minimal effort. If you hate scrubbing, consider getting this! Also, Our Place was founded by Shiza Shahid, along with Amir Tehrani and Zach Rosner. She's a Pakistani social entrepreneur who also cofounded the nonprofit Malala Fund, which promotes education for young girls."

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in nine colors).

    6. A Glossier Ultralip that adds gloss and shine to lips with the perfect hint of color. Achieve a "your lips but better" look all while hydrating them post-sunbathing.

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    It's super buildable and is vegan and cruelty-free.

    This is an amazing lip product for summer. It's hydrating and not sticky (which is, in my opinion, the worst thing about glosses). I love applying a light coat and then blending it in with my finger so it isn't too shiny but it looks great without blending too. I find that in the summertime, regular lipsticks and liquid lippies can be way too drying so this balm is the perfect hybrid between lipstick and gloss. It has a gorgeous sheen that looks natural and healthy. You can even apply it on the high points of your cheeks for some glow and a pop of color (no need for blush!).

    Get it from Glossier for $20.99 (available in nine shades).

    7. A silicone case so you can avoid the tangled mess that is taking your earbuds out of your bag. I personally should've bought this a longgggg time ago.

    amazon.com, youtube.com

    Promising review: "If you are looking for a clean, easy-to-find in your bag earbud case that keeps earbuds neatly packed away from all the potentially nasty, unclean junk in your backpack/purse/pockets, and keeps the cords in place, then this case reigns supreme! I personally like how the cases come in bright colors to make it easier to find." —Cherlindrea

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in seven colors).

    8. A grippy silicone strip because no one wants their bag slipping off their arm (the worst). Add this to the strap and it'll stay in place all day.

    Amazon, youtube.com

    Promising review: "I recently bought a high quality leather shoulder strap handbag and was having problems with it sliding off my shoulder, since the leather strap was fairly smooth. So I went online and searched to see if there were any products out there that would solve this issue...and I found the Purse Gummy! It works beautifully! No more struggling with a slipping strap. It is hardly noticeable on the strap since it is on the underside, but I wouldn't mind it if was seen because it works so well." —D. Dillon

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.95.

    9. A 90th Anniversary Mickey Waffle Maker because the reality of hopping on a plane to grab the BEST WAFFLES ON EARTH (don't @ me on this) isn't totally achievable. This maker will make it easy for you to make these mousey morsels at home.

    shopDisney / Dinglehopper84, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    It's a double-sided waffle maker that makes three Mickey-shaped breakfast treats on each side, so you can make six all at once! It also features an adjustable browning dial so you can make them as crispy as you'd like!

    Promising review: "This waffle maker is the centerpiece of our whole kitchen, as we decided to do a Mickey theme! My kids love the waffles and it brings fun to breakfast every time we use it. I love that you can adjust the temperature and that it alerts you when the waffles are ready. Super easy to use and a must have for any Disney fan!!! Do yourself a favor and add to your kitchen!!!" —MamaOfTwo1122

    Get it from shopDisney for $74.95.

    10. A tube of L'Oreal Voluminous Primer Mascara for the thickest lashes imaginable. It goes on white and adds additional fibers to lengthen and thicken lashes so your new summer makeup routine will consist of lash primer and mascara...and nothing else. (If you've been saying you want lash extensions, this is your inexpensive solution.)

    Allison Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    Over the years I've noticed my lashes falling out and they're not as voluminous and long as they once were (*cries*). This mascara primer has changed all of that. I use it in tandem with the Thrive Causemetics mascara for a dynamic duo that hasn't failed me yet. The primer base adds a noticeable amount of fibers to thicken my thin lashes, which gives me a full-lash look.

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.20.

    11. And Essence Lash Princess Mascara to volumize lashes beyond belief. Even if you don't wear as much makeup this time of year, you still want your lashes to be lifted and curled to the heavens. Pop this on top of a primer for that extra ~wow factor~.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I usually don’t write reviews, but I had to write one for this mascara. I saw a review for it on Facebook, which directed me to Amazon and for less than $5, I figured what could it hurt to try it. I never expected it to be as good as a $40 mascara! I only wear washable mascara and this stayed on all day with no flecking off at all and no smudges. It easily came off with just soap and water, too! The length was good with just one coat, and it stayed wet enough to separate your lashes well before it dried. I liked it so much with just one coat that I didn’t even bother with a second coat. I put on my sunglasses and my eyelashes were touching the glass! Now that’s length and I’m 60 years old!" —P. Blomberg

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    12. A S'well drink chiller so enjoying that first crisp sip of your fave bevvy can be an every-sip kinda thing. This chiller will keep your cans cold for up to six hours (plenty of time to sip slowly)!

    This chiller features triple-layered, vacuum-insulated construction so all it takes is you slipping your can or bottle into the holder and it's ready to ~enjoy~.

    Get it from S'well for $20

    13. A Baker's Edge brownie pan because everyone knows the edges are the best part of this delectable dessert. You can also utilize the pan for testing out different topping options. ~YUM~

    Reviewer's picture of the brownie pin with bordering that makes every piece a corner piece
    amazon.com

    And! A nylon spatula and brownie recipes are included.

    Promising review: "I received this as a gift from a friend and thought, 'what a useless waste of precious kitchen space' (I live in a tiny Manhattan apartment). But I’m not rude, so I graciously accepted it and figured I’d try it once before it went out the door. I love it. LOVE. Every brownie is perfect. I especially like that I can top each channel with something different, so my whole family is happy and neither of my kids finds an offensive item on their brownie. I’ve also used this for bar cookies and baked ziti — every piece has a delicious crust! This has earned a permanent home in my one, minuscule pots/pans/gadgets/foil and baggies cabinet." —Cheap & Chic

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95.

    14. A bottle of hard-water booster powder that'll bring your coveted mugs back to life. This powder will rid your drinkware of any cloudiness from years of wear and tear.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have a well and a water softener, but the dishes were still not coming out clean, and the hard water is the problem. This product is just great, dishes coming out shiny and clean. It really does help a lot with hard water in the dishwasher. I am on my third container and will keep using it. I was almost ready to buy a new dishwasher but the problem is the water softener and this product is helping me get better use out of the dishwasher. Really a fine product. It WORKS!" —Zipporah

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    15. A charcoal-based toothpaste that's satisfyingly gross scrubbing on your teeth, but will have your teeth whiter with each brush.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love love love it! It made my mouth feel clean and fresh — and my teeth have been whitened!! I've tried the powder charcoal teeth whitener and I hated it. This product is amazing!" —Misty O'Brien-Barques

    Get it from Amazon for $4.82.

    16. A pack of natural green tea oil-blotting sheets to help remove any excess oil on the skin for a mattified look. Keep these in your bag to dab over your T-zone so your makeup stays looking fresh all day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these on a whim a few months ago, and I've bought three more packs of them for friends and family. I always used to use the Clean & Clear oil blotting sheets, but these are so much better. They feel papery, which is better than the shiny feeling of the Clean & Clear ones. They also come out of the package much easier. With the Clean & Clear ones, you were always having to use a piece of sticky tape to pick up the next sheet, but this one comes out on its own after you pull a sheet, which is great. I can't recommend it enough." —Carly

    Get a six pack from Amazon for $29.95 (available in bamboo, green tea, and rose and in packs of one and two).

    17. Luv Scrub mesh body exfoliators that'll undoubtedly replace your yucky, overused loofahs for something that's def more sanitary. Use them dry for a quick "dry brushing" experience or wet to lather up your soap for some deep exfoliation.

    Marquaysa Battle / BuzzFeed

    Luv Scrub is a Black woman–owned business, and its mesh cloth design is inspired by a traditional West African morning routine.

    My coworker Marquaysa loves this: "This baby makes the skin all over my body feel literally softer and smoother than it's EVER felt. Scrubbing with it also feels super soothing — like I'm using a body scrub minus the gritty mess leftover to rinse from the shower afterward. I also dig how fast it dries so I'm not putting a bacteria magnet on my skin each time I use it. Def get this if you wanna invest more into your body care/self-care routine. 30 outta 10, most def recommend."

    Get from beauty supply shop Beauty Beez (also Black-owned) for $18 OR directly from Luv Scrub for $18.

    18. Small scrub brushes because using old Colgate toothbrushes to clean your grout might take you quite a long time. These dual-ended scrub brushes can help you pick and scrub any unwanted dirt and stains away! Just pair with a tile cleaner!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The smaller one is double-ended with a wiper blade so you can clean out the tiniest cracks near your sink and elsewhere.

    Promising review: "This set is the best friend of those who hate cleaning bathroom fixtures. Instead of scrubbing and scraping, you can give a few comfortable whisks with one of these brushes and the job is done. The brushes are particularly good at quick-cleaning the back of the faucets where you normally can't see what you are doing. Also good at keeping the silver drain rings shiny. I couldn't be happier with this set." —Rodger

    Get them from Amazon for $7.95 (available in two colors and in sets of two).

    19. A Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand to add a sun-kissed bronze to the skin that looks natural as heck. I swear by this stuff and will probably never stop being a fan. It just blends so well and melts in the skin beautifully.

    Charlotte Tilbury, Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    I cannot say enough good things about this contour wand. It's constantly sold out, which already tells me it is not only beloved by me, but by so many others as well. I have never had a product blend so seamlessly into my skin and genuinely look like my actual skin once I've gotten a bit of color from out in the sun. This is my holy-grail cream contour and I'll forever be a fan. If they stop making this, I will cry.

    Get it from Charlotte Tilbury for $38 (available in two colors).

    20. A bag resealer because somehow all those bag clips you bought a few months ago have magically vanished. This easy-to-use tool will eliminate any potential future purchases of bag clips that will just get lost in the shuffle.

    Promising review: "This works great, much better than clips. I never knew anything like this existed, but now that I know I use it daily. It seals all plastic bags I’ve tried instantly and they’re just like how they were from the store. I’ve since bought more for my daughter and daughter in laws and they all love them too!" —Ralph

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    21. A handheld garlic press since attempting to mince garlic with a knife is a risky tango with death. Also — all of the pieces will be the same size so they'll cook evenly.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a two-hinge garlic press, which worked well but the garlic often got stuck and it was not easy to clean. I am pleasantly surprised by how this garlic crusher has such a simple design, yet it is so effective. As you press the garlic, the minced garlic will be collected on top of the grater and you can easily scape them off with the little knife that came with the kit. I also love the silicone peeler! It makes peeling garlic skin a lot easier. With these tools, my hands longer stink from cropping garlic!" —CL

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    22. A Frywall — it's ideal for cooking splatter-prone things like bacon without spewing grease all over you and your cooktop. It can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit with its durable BPA-free silicone.

    Frywall place inside pan on stove top
    Amazon

    It's BPA-free, FDA-compliant, heat-resistant up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I was frying chicken with lard (yes, I use lard! My chicken is NOT health food.) and I put too much in the frying pan. A few minutes after putting the chicken in, the lard began to bubble up and if I hadn't had the Frywall in place, it would have spilled all over my stove. The Frywall creates a seal around my frying pan, stopping spillovers. Splatters don't escape, it's easy to work around it (turning my chicken over), and when I'm done, I just throw it in the dishwasher. If you do any frying at all, you want the Frywall." —Carl G Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in four colors).

    23. A roll-on anti-blister stick in case it's time to break in those cute new shoes and you want to be prepared. This balm features vitamins A and C to restore skin and minimize inflammation.

    You know those cute heels you've been dying to wear? This is the answer to avoiding those pesky blisters.

    Promising review: "I use this for foot blisters and chafing legs in the winter. I've repurchased this a few times since finding it. Honestly works wonders. Love!" —Tricia

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    24. A set of wool dryer balls so you can cut back on laundry dry time and reduce static. No more crazy static hair when you put on your freshly washed sweater.

    Wool dryer balls
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have several clothing items that have care instructions that state 'no fabric softener' so I stopped using dryer sheets or liquid clothes softener. However, there was the problem with static electricity. The wool dryer balls eliminated this problem. The laundry is wrinkle-free and static-free now. I am so happy about the results of this product that I bought four more of the packages to give to my adult daughters and my sisters. I recommend this product." —Michael Nestor

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95.

    25. A set of Pantene Rescue Shots in case your dry hair could use some hydration. These help target hair with extreme damage for healthier tresses.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My hair was processed and damaged; my husband would say that it feels like a straw bale. This little ampule changed my life. After one use, my hair was soft as silk, shiny, and manageable. It was completely unreal how this product transformed my hair and I knew I had to find more. I bought two boxes on Amazon and will continue to use this religiously. For something so inexpensive, it is a game changer. I now have my friends on the Rescue train and they are just as impressed." —melissa michael

    Get two four-packs from Amazon for $11.99+.

    26. A carpet cleaner so you no longer have to call a carpet steamer to get that red wine stain out that's been there since New Years 2015...

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I use this for everything! From the carpet in my new car that my daughter spilled coffee all over, set-in stains my husband acquired on his white shoes while playing an impromptu game of basketball, marinara on the upholstery on my dining room chairs, to blowout stains on the baby’s new outfit. It’s removed it all. I have no idea what this stuff is, but it’s a miracle substance in a bottle and truly works as advertised." —Anna Kelough

    Get it from Amazon for $12.10.

    27. A makeup brush–cleansing shampoo if you hate to admit how long it's actually been since you've given your brushes a solid wash. This shampoo will help diminish any germs that can be spread when applying makeup.

    amazon.com

    This brush-cleaning shampoo is paraben-, phthalates-, petroleum-, and perfume-free. It's also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, water-based, and made with gentle, plant-based ingredients, because after all, your makeup brushes are used on your face, so you want to be sure you're cleaning them with a natural, safe product.

    Promising review: "I love how clean my makeup tools feel after using this product. It breaks down the makeup buildup and the brushes feel so soft and like new. The only downside is the bottle feels a tad small but it seems a little goes a long way so I'm happy with this product. This is my second time ordering. :)" —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    28. A travel-size Cuvée Beauty Daily Dose Set to bring hair back to life with its champagne-infused shampoo and conditioner. Not only does it smell super good, but it's great for adding hydration back into color treated hair (bleaching babes, this is for you). Everything you need is in this lineup!

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed, Cuvee Beauty

    This perfect-for-travel set includes shampoo, conditioner, texture spray, Blowout Bombe, a perfume roller ball, AND a cute carrying case.

    This is the perfect travel set, it has everything you could need for hair care all in one handy travel case. All the products smell AMAZING. These products feature champagne extracts and truffle extracts for a silky, hydrating finish and the scent lasts post-styling hair. I have a lot of bleach in my hair and struggle to get it looking and feeling healthy and these products made my hair feel definitely healthier after a few washes.

    Get it from Cuvée Beauty for $55 (originally $84).

    29. A cream highlighter that will pop on the high bones of your cheeks or (my fave) on the inner corners of your eyes and brow bone!

    1daybeauty, Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    1daybeauty is a BIPOC-owned business whose mission is to create an all-inclusive beauty experience. They're based in Toronto, Canada.

    All products are vegan and cruelty-free.

    I recently saw an influencer I love (Dana Patterson) use this on her inner corners in an IGTV she posted and just HAD to have it. The way it shimmered and looked effortlessly gorgeous on her made me instantly hop over to their site to buy it. I am a sucker for anything shimmery I can add to my eyes and cheeks for a dewy look and this one is amazing. It isn't sticky, nor does it feel heavy, especially on the eyes. A little goes a long way so it is a makeup product must-have. (I'm wearing the bellini shade!)

    Get it from 1daybeauty for $36 (available in five shades).

    30. A handmade organizer for plastic storage bags to stop the inevitable chaos that your drawers turn into after every sandwich bag box is opened.

    Get it from JCSignCraft on Etsy for $49+ (available in two sizes).

    31. Arctic Fox Semi-Permanent Hair Color that'll supply hair with rich, saturated color while simultaneously conditioning. It even works on dark hair (!!!) so you can spice up your summer tresses for something more fun!

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    BONUS POINTS: It's vegan and cruelty-free! It's extra vivid on already bleached hair, but creates colorful highlights on darker hair.

    Promising review: "I didn't bleach my hair before using this, so I knew it wasn't going to be bright but it is just the right color. My hair was a medium brown and now it's a beautiful dark purple. My hair felt dead and now it looks better then ever. My hair is very thick and halfway down my back and one of the 8-oz bottles covered my whole head with some left over." —shelton graham

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in two sizes and 20 shades).

    32. An easily hangable T-shirt organizer in case folding your clothes in a way that would make Marie Kondo proud is just not in your repertoire of talents.

    Get it from The Roll Keeper on Etsy for $16.99 (available in five colors) and Amazon for $19.99.

    33. A bottle of Argan Oil Thermal Spray because protecting hair before heat tools is V important. It also doubles as a leave-in conditioning serum. So whether you're letting your hair air dry and want to avoid frizz or are getting ready to use that blowout brush, your hair will stay smooth and protected.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried a lot of heat protectors and straighteners, but this is the best one yet. It doesn’t make my hair difficult to brush or sticky, like many of them. My hair is so soft and conditioned, and straightens very easily. I don’t even think it’s meant to be a straightening product, but when you have thick, curly hair, it still makes the process sooo much easier. I love the fine mist, too. I washed and sprayed my hair, then went to bed, and in the morning I finished blow-drying (if you have curls, you know they don't dry completely overnight, LOL) and flat-ironed. Beautiful results! I’ll be reordering for sure." —luckydb16
