1. A premium wine aerator so each sip of vino will taste like a Tuscan vineyard...and not like the $10 you just spent at Trader Joe's. This cleverly infuses the optimal amount of oxygen into every pour so all your glasses of red henceforth can breathe well into the new year.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Works unbelievably well in aeratoring wine and transforms the flavor directly out of the bottle with no need to wait for the wine to breathe. No leakage issues, works perfectly and I highly recommend purchasing one for yourself and fellow wine enthusiasts." —Tamara

2. Velvet scrunchy bows you'll be reaching for to put the finishing touches to braids and updo's. Rumor has it, these have magical powers to make quick, messy topknots look like you actually made an effort.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am obsessed with these scrunchie bows. The velvet feels so smooth and the colors are saturated and vivid! The bow adds the perfect dainty touch to an updo. I wear these every day now. When I'm in a suit, I still wear them for a little pop of color and I always get compliments on the bow! It has become part of my character now. I highly recommend these. The scrunchie is good quality. Two wraps and it holds your hair nice and firm without choking it. Perfect!!" —Jacquelyn Paige Orchard

3. A Revlon one-step hairdryer and volumizer brush currently holding the title as the number one most-wished-for beauty product on Amazon — and for good reason. This, the blow-drying brush of your dreams, handles two jobs in one go and cuts your routine in half so you can achieve silky smooth, frizz-free locks in ~30 minutes.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Folks, one of my favorite quarantine purchases has been this godsend from Revlon. I've never been much of a blow-dryer myself — I never had the patience, energy, or the technique for that matter. But then in swoops this two-in-one tool to give my hair the glam of Jackie O in just about 20 minutes. I have relatively thick, wavy, shoulder-length locks and I've never enjoyed witnessing a transformation quite like the one I'm able to achieve with this styler. Giving myself a quick, ~salon-worthy~ blow out for Monday morning meetings has been my new way to feel a little less disheveled for the day.

Promising review: "I have very thick, wavy hair. I can never blow out my hair because it's too hard to hold the round brush and hairdryer in the right spots. THIS!! It is everything all in one and the oval shape makes it so easy to use. It gets really hot. It is a little loud on high, but I've found if my hair is already a little dry then I can just use it on low. I used a blow-dry primer spray to accelerate the drying time and protect my hair. I'm in love! The flat iron always flattens my hair and makes it look dry. This straightens and retains the volume and gives it a soft, non-damaged look." —SAHM2011

4. A scrap trap to make post-meal cleaning a thing of the past. Trash skins and crumbs *as* you chop so the only heavy lifting left to do is picking up the remote to switch on your Housewives marathon.

amazon.com

This also includes a brush/scraper that fits neatly in the front pocket to easily swipe scraps and crumbs into the container.

Promising review: "Works just as described. It is so convenient to push scraps from the counter or cutting board into the scrap trap. Even though it is too big, place a plastic shopping bag in before you fill it and you will have the scraps bagged when you are done. It keeps things neat when doing prep work. Also bought one as a gift; everyone who cooks should have one." —SR

Get it from Amazon for $26.18.

5. A stainless-steel tongue scraper designed to banish bad breath, enhance tastebuds, and reduce bacteria buildup. A bonus? This also restores the look of your natural color of your tongue, too.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I never realized how much gunk was on my tongue in the mornings. Pretty disgusting actually. My mouth feels extra clean after using this. Great quality stainless-steel. To sanitize it, I just dip it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes. The only thing others may have an issue with is storage as it doesn't come with a case or anything. Simple solution, though. I put up a small hook next to my toothpaste and toothbrush and hang it on that." —Alexis T.

6. Glossier Skywash to provide a gorgeous flush of matte, buildable color to your lids. Using the pillowy-soft applicator, you can quickly swipe on these subtle yet colorful hues so you can *choo choo* hop on board that Y2K train.

Glossier

Promising review: "I usually don't wear eye makeup so as a beginner, I was interested in a product that was both beginner friendly + easy to create a minimalistic makeup look. I love the v sheer and light wash of color I can add to my eyelids if I wanna brighten them up a bit. They can be buildable, but I'm usually satisfied w one swatch. They dry down matte and last pretty much the whole day. I'll probably buy one or two more 'natural' looking colors for my everyday, simple non-makeup makeup looks. I usually don't use primer before, but I might start using if I ever decide to buy more pigmented colored versions of this." —Glossier Customer

7. Keurig cleaning cups if you're someone like me and didn't realize a coffeemaker needed to be descaled — turns out, it DOES. Just pop in one of the pods as you would a coffee cup, and proceed to be amazed (read: horrified) at the amount of residue that trickles into your cup of joe.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is an excellent product that I cannot say enough good things about. I had thrown away my current Keurig machine thinking it was broken. I decided to try to resurrect it using these cleaners and I am glad I did! One cup took care of years of neglect on my part (lesson learned). Because there was so much cleaning needed, I used two cups, and now the machine works perfectly. So glad I discovered this product and highly recommend. I am thinking a three-month interval to keep the machine in good condition. Thank you so much!" —Susan

8. A bottle of Drop It to eliminate wine sulfates and tannins that usually lead to a regrettable wine headache. This works rather swiftly so you can indulge in all your holiday reds without fear of developing those pesky allergy-like symptoms.

CloseClose
Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends one to two drops for each glass of white wine, two to three for a glass of red, and seven to nine if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: "For many years, I have been that friend that always says 'no thanks, I can't drink wine.' Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too — so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don't have a migraine the next day. I'm so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It's easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more." —Mackenzie

Free People

Promising review: "I love, love, love this onesie! It is perfect for everything: Shopping, lounging, sleeping, dancing, exercising. It is a great everyday piece. I bought a large because I wanted a baggy fit. I have to tie the shoulder straps. It is too big, so in the second one I bought a medium, which is still a size up, and I really like this fit. This is perfect and I definitely recommend this onesie!" —Free People Customer

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Our 70-pound lab boxer mix was in misery due to skin allergies. We had spent a small fortune and he had two allergy related surgeries that left him weakened and with serious hair loss. We changed diet, went through food trials, twice! Various prescription allergy medications with no relief. We started using these treats and his coat now looks healthy and normal. His vitality has improved and we haven't visited the vet for months! We are amazed at the change in his skin. The itch has stopped completely. I only wish we had found relief for him sooner." —Kool-aide

Amazon

Promising review: "This plastic sleeve fit the vaccination card perfectly and securely. We traveled to Hawaii and we were required to show our card each time we entered a restaurant or crowded store. Additionally, the airport and airline were also strict about showing the card. This sleeve made the process easy." —Patti H.

13. A Marshmallow Whip Maker adored by those on ye old TikTok since it has the ability to turn regular (aka boring) cleanser into light, airy frothy goodness. Frothy foam = less irritation and friction against your skin + more fun-filled morning and nighttime routines.

Amazon, amazon.com

To use this, all you have to do is put a pearl-sized drop of your favorite cleanser at the bottom, fill with water up to the dotted line, and pump it until it creates foam.

Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises — makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can 'soften' harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal —if you're into this kind of thing. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —KnockKnockMe

14. A bottle of Bio Oil that's amassed over 100,000 reviews for gently treating uneven complexions. It's also non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog pores and ::jumps for joy:: can be used on the face to eradicate acne scars, too.

amazon.com

Psst! Bio-Oil contains retinol, which accelerates skin turnover but can make you more sensitive to the sun — so don't forget your sunscreen!

Promising review: "I was skeptical of how amazing the reviews are, but this stuff is pure gold. I use it on stretch marks on my legs and in just a week they went from bright angry red to purple. I use it twice a day if I remember, and it's amazing. I also rub it on my face after I wash my face. It has made my acne on my cheeks go WAY down, and is removing the scars. I have amazing skin now. I use this stuff EVERY day, and I've barely even put a dent in it. This size is amazing, and for the price — holy cow. I seriously never leave reviews, but seriously this stuff is pure magic. I tried vitamin C serum, rosehip, witch hazel, etc. and this is the only thing that has worked for me. Good luck!!" —Jessamyne Campbell

15. An air fryer from the food pro's that brought you the Instant Pot. Because if you're looking for a kitchen helper that'll save you money in the long run, this futuristic-looking device might just be it — whip up anything from fried chicken to crispy potatoes in record time (and with less greasy mess).

Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed Editor Hannah Loewentheil bought an air fryer during quarantine, and has zero regrets: "Friends of mine were raving about their new Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer, so after reading similar feedback on Amazon, I decided it looked like a winner. I figured I would be using this appliance primarily as air air fryer, but as an added bonus, it can also roast, broil, bake, re-heat, and dehydrate food. I've had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it's become the hero of my kitchen. It preheats quickly, it's large enough to hold a good amount of food at once, it's easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I've been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night and it makes them taste so good. If you're cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don't get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don't mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there's no oil involved in the cooking — just air. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn't believe I made this at home!!"

18. A large cup holder built to extend the capabilities of the one in you car — one that clearly wasn't designed to fit your motivational drinking bottle or Yeti coffee mugs.

amazon.com

The insert has a tapered base that goes from 3.2 to 2.6 inches so it fits in most standard cup holders. It's suitable for cups and bottles 32 to 40 ounces.

Promising review: "The console cup holders in the Chevy Colorado are ridiculously small. Good for a 12-oz paper cup and that's it. There is a thick rubbery liner within the cupholder area, and this Smart Kup slides in and grips nicely. Also, it goes in deep enough to be stable. With a full 40-oz insulated Hydro Flask in it, the holder doesn't move or tip over or pop out of the cup holder hole during sharp turns. The cup also keeps the Hydro Flask from falling out of the cup, because it sits deep enough." —Bartimus Max

19. Glisten foaming tablets if your garbage disposal really hasn't been tended to, like, ever. These will do the trick to deeply cleanse the underside of the splashguard and the interior side walls.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a fun product to use! I do recommend using it with a disposal scrub brush, since I hadn’t cleaned my disposal in...many many centuries...it took a little scrubbing in addition to get all the grime out. This made the process MUCH easier though, and I love the foam that bubbles up. It’s as fun to watch as it is good at cleaning. I’d buy again sometime." —Leslie

Promising review: "I never knew I needed dishwasher cleaner. I found this product in a BuzzFeed article. The reviews were so great I just knew i had to try it. I was pretty blown away by what the inside of my dishwasher looked like after. It wasn’t funky dirty per say, but it definitely looked aged.

I had to vacuum out crud from the barrel after the tub clean cycle was done, and run two more rinses without any clothes/detergent to see clear water.

22. A sheet mask.. for le derrière created to redefine the meaning of self-care in the next solar year. Thanks to natural, plant-based ingredients, you can slap on some moisture and tone every inch of your booty-ful self, one cheek at a time.

instagram.com, Amazon

They're available in four varieties:

* Slap It (pictured; retexturing and detoxifying with caffeine)

* Squeeze It (brightening and rejuvenating with citrus)

* Shake It (firming and illuminating with marine algae)

* Bite It (hydrating and toning with plant-based collagen)

Promising review (for "Bite it"): "I LOVED this mask. I was incredibly skeptical and figured it'd be more of a novelty mask. I was also sure that the mask would not be big enough to cover my curvy thicc butt. It's safe to say my expectations were low. Regardless I was blown away with the outcome. I'm so happy I purchased. I do have cellulite as well overly dry skin, as it's summertime I spend a lot of time in bikinis with my bottom showing and I just felt like a hydration recharge and a little life added back into my skin. I took a shower and when I got out, I put the mask on and left it on longer than the recommended amount of time. I felt the end result visibly made my skin look hydrated as well as smooth. Not only that but I felt the next morning I could still visibly see the results, so I was extra happy in my bikini that day. I know everyone's skin and shape is different so results will always vary but I can definitely say this booty mask is no gimmick, and extra kudos to this company for making a booty mask that covers big booties! Also side note: The packaging is adorable." —CC

Most reviewers recommend sizing up!

Promising review: "I've never worn pants that make me as happy as these do. I feel like I'm being enveloped in a cloud. I sized up (good idea), due to other reviews. They're perfect for cold winter days, being warm and toasty when you and hubs disagree on what the thermostat should read, and getting a hug from your clothing when you're exhausted after a day of work/your kids running you ragged, or both. I'm also sensitive to nonbreathable clothes, particularly at night, but these haven't made me feel too hot so far." —Torrey Baldwin

24. A magnificent odor-removing gel that'll rid your home of stinky odors once and for all. It's home-cooking season after all and this will eradicate lingering smells instead of just masking them.

Amazon

Promising review: "I have eight large-breed dogs who have the run of the house, even though we sweep and vacuum twice a day you can still smell dog. I have little to nothing in the way of soft surfaces that hold odor and the whole house gets a deep clean three times a week, but the smell keeps popping up. I put three of these around my house and people have asked me if the dogs are not in the house anymore. It doesn't cover up the smell, it really eliminates it and leaves the house smelling crisp and clean." —BB Caldwell

Its soothing mist runs for eight hours and is ideal for overnight use or throughout the day as you work. Skin is left feeling moist, hydrated, and prepped, ready for maximum absorption of your go-to serums and creams.

amazon.com

Hey Dewy was co-founded by Cindy Kang, a Korean-born entrepreneur who spent 15 years in dry, stale offices before dreaming up a portable humidifier that could be used anywhere.

Simply use the included 5-foot USB cord to connect to a power source, then unplug for wireless use.

My BuzzFeed Shopping colleague Danielle Healy has the 10.8 ounce humidifier and loves it, she says: "This baby humidifier has genuinely made my life SO much better! For months, I would wake up with my nose and lips painfully dry until I started setting this little guy up on my nightstand while I sleep, and plugged into my laptop on my desk while I work. Not only are my skin hydration levels waaayyy up, but I really enjoy leaning over to feel the cool mist on my face for a few deep, cleansing breaths throughout the day. It's incredibly refreshing and I already know is going to be a lifesaver in a future where travel is a thing. Dry plane and hotel room air is a thing of the past!"

I ran around like a headless chicken for about 24 hours because the pressure in the ear was so intense. One treatment of Debrox and the blockage immediately subsided. Trick is to let it sit in the ear for at least five minutes. Drain the ear, wait another five minutes, then irrigate with the bulb and warm water, never cold. Seldom does a remedy work as advertised; this one does!" —Chazmax1

amazon.com

Promising review: "So, like a dummy, I never thought about cleaning under our sectional when we purchased it. It's huge, heavy, and unmovable — and the kids like to eat nearby, so food is constantly rolling/sliding/migrating underneath and it gets disgusting. Too low-profile to vacuum; broom won't fit. Was using one of the static dusters for ceiling fans that was doing a meh job - this little thing got yuck out from under there from... *shudder* let's not talk about it. Great little tool. Fit under my washer, dryer, and fridge, too, which was an added bonus. Cleanup is easy, too." —mmj

30. A creamy dreamy oatmeal-scented paw butter created to nourish dry, cracked pads and little boopable noses, too. Massage this onto paws before and after walks, so they can get a little at-home pedi treatment. (And! It's pH-balanced so all good if they happen to lick or swallow it.)

amazon.com

Promising review: "We live in Chicago and the winters are brutal on our black Lab's paws. The salt and snow were cracking his pads and although our dog wasn't whining or showing any pain, there is no way that a crack in his pad felt good. We put this on his paws once a day and noticed an improvement. We would take him out to play fetch and apply it the second we came back inside while he was still tired and panting so that he wouldn't lick it all off. It worked well enough that we'll buy it again next winter." —Todd Snyder

31. A squeegee broom for easily gathering up crumbs, spills, *and* pet hair from any surface (we're talking carpets, furniture, wooden floors, wherever). Who knows, you might even enjoy giving the crevices of your couch a quick scrape with this once a week.

Its natural rubber bristles attract pet hair on multiple surfaces, like carpet, tile, hardwood, and linoleum AND has a built-in rubber squeegee (aka the thing you use on your windshield) for cleaning windows and spills.

Promising review: "I have three cats, a Great Pyrenees, AND allergies, and this thing is absolutely amazing! This is an image that I took right after vacuuming.

32. The Madewell leather transport tote, a signature accessory that's trusted by thousands of shoppers (including our own editors) for being a stylish and practical carryall that will last you for years...years, I tell you!

Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed's resident Reviews Specialist Rachel Dunkel has this and says: "Random canvas totes may come and go, but nothing beats having a permanent, go-to bag. I've had this since college when I used it to carry my heavy load of books, my laptop, and other English major paraphernalia, but it's transitioned flawlessly into my adult life where — OK — I still use it to carry books and my computer. The leather is getting a lovely patina and the structure of the bag is as strong as the day I got it. It has one zippered interior pocket which is perfect for keys, cards, or any other tiny necessities. I received this as a gift, so I can confirm that it makes a good one! My bag is even monogrammed, which made the gift all the more special. (You can add monogramming to almost any Madewell leather or denim item for $10 or for free if you're a Madewell Insider!) If you can't spring for this wondrous tote now, I absolutely recommend putting it on your wishlist."

amazon.com

It even has a minty scent, so you don't have to worry about that harsh chemical smell most cleaning products usually emit.

Promising review: "I have tried for weeks to get rid of some very tough hard water stains on my glass shower panel. They had been there for three years while my apartment was rented and never cleaned. I have tried just about everything from toothpaste, to vinegar, to different types of chemical products. Then I found this product...PURE MAGIC!!! The non-toxicity of the product is definitely a plus, it doesn't smell bad and doesn't sting your lungs like some hard chemicals do. Its biodegradability is a plus! I feel better knowing I'm not dumping some more toxic chemicals down the drain. Most importantly, it works!!! After 10 minutes of work it has removed 90% of the hard water stains that simply would not come off in the past!!" —O.R

34. A bundle from Chirp to reverse the aches and pains that come from stooping over your laptop all day. This comes complete with three convenient massaging wheels that adapt to the type of relief you're after: gentle, firm, and deep-tissue — as well as an upper back posture corrector *and* convenient carrying case!

Chirp

Promising review: "I've been using these for over a year or so now and I've got to say they're the best rollers for me. I've tried a lot of rollers but getting the three-pack Chirp has been such a game changer compared to my previous favorite roller. You can work out every muscle knot or sore spot with the varying sizes for pressure control. These rolls and along with stretching has greatly alleviated my messed up wrestler's back and would recommend getting them all. Excited for the preorder with the built in massager. ;)" —Mrspriggs

35. A disgustingly satisfying set of Sticky Stake insect traps so effective, they'll make pesky gnats, thrips, and fruit flies think twice about coming anywhere near your precious collection of plant babies.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. Unfortunately I added a new houseplant, plus repotted one that had outgrown its prior home, and we are wrapped up in them again. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

Promising review: "It’s a miracle in a bottle. My German shepherd mix decided to pull a black fountain pen out of my purse and chew it to pieces on my beige carpet while I was sleeping — this cleaner lifted the stain, and now it’s like the devastation my dog caused never happened! As soon as I saw it lifting the ink, I got back on Amazon and bought more bottles. I will never let myself run out of this. I use it in my Bissell carpet cleaner for some crazy good cleaning power. I’ve become that weird lady that goes around singing the praises of a cleaning product. No regrets." —L. Logan

Promising review: "I’ve had this pillow for about a week now. I was skeptical at first buying a $50 pillow but I woke up every morning with horrible neck and shoulder blade pain so I convinced myself to buy the pillow because it was cheaper than buying a new mattress. This is the best thing I’ve ever bought! I sleep all night and wake up in the same position I fell asleep in. I have no pain! It’s comfortable and I’m a side/back sleeper. I highly recommend this pillow. It does have a slight chemical smell but I only noticed it for a couple of days. BUY IT!!" —BRITTNI Murphy

Promising review: "Wow!!! You wonder if things like this really work and well, I can absolutely confirm it does! First, I was impressed that the package came with two of the devices because I was only expecting one. So there was one for the fitted sheet, and [one for] the flat sheet. Finally, I tried it out, and my sheets not only did NOT wad up, they came out of the dryer feeling fresher, feeling more dry, and unwrinkled! I will be buying a set of these for each of my immediate family members and close friends! What a great gift!!!" —katy

Promising review: "I have a pillow top and pillow bottom queen sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY .... SINGLE... NIGHT. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

Promising review: "I’ve always been kind of sick. I throw up on long car rides, I can’t read in the car, I get horrible migraines 24/7, etc. Recently I changed medications and because of that, my migraines came back with a vengeance. Thinking there was nothing I could do I kind of gave up, until, I was looking at BuzzFeed and saw this in their recommended. I thought it could help with any car sickness that I would get but man I was not giving these enough credit! Since I have bought them I where ALL.THE.TIME.

Promising review: "This product does exactly what it says it does. I saw this product on TikTok. I was surprised at how easily it picks up dust and small debris, especially from inside of vents and cup holders. It’s also great for the though screen in my car! The only complaint is the very artificial smell when you use it. It doesn’t last, just when it’s out of the container!" —Loren

This is an item that #tiktokmademebuyit for sure! I saw a video on TikTok and immediately went on the hunt only to be disappointed that this item was sold out everywhere!

Promising review: "I have the kind of eyebrows that look very full with brushing, but can quickly look like one has 'collapsed' once my hair or something else touches it. I’ve used nearly every product from Anastasia BH, but never had luck keeping my brows in place. Well, let me tell you, this stuff is no joke. I had to scrub my eyebrows clean tonight to get them to move. If you need some help holding your fluff, this will be your new favorite product. Also, I was able to ditch the eyebrow pencil since this this stuff holds every hair in the place you brush it." —Bailey M, Deacon
