Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A button-up dress bound to suffer the same fate as your favorite jeans or your softest tee. In other words, this WILL be worn all πŸ‘ the πŸ‘ time πŸ‘.,

    Promising review: "This is my new favorite dress! The fit is amazing, the length is perfect, and I love that the loops for the buttons are stretchy to allow a little give in the chest area. It’s a very thin, lightweight material perfect for spring and summer, and I definitely recommend washing by hand." β€”Justine

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 25 colors).

    2. A handy dandy checklist pad to make spring cleaning seem slightly less daunting. Make a list, check it twice, you're gonna find out...what you have and haven't done yet.


    Promising review: "This is a great pad for anyone who has trouble keeping track of chores and things to do around the house. My partner and I work busy jobs, so we use this to make sure we don't forget about our chores! It's also complete with a magnet that can be attached to the fridge. This is so great for keeping your home neat and organized." β€”Rocket

    Get it from Amazon for $6.38.

    3. A small crossbody bag that sort of resembles a picnic basket which is great, because picnic season is FINALLY upon us. Grab a blanket, people! It's time to eat lunch in the great outdoors that is your company parking lot.

    Promising review: "This bag is so freaking cute! It's actually bigger on the inside than you'd think, plus the floral fabric interior is super cute. My only complain is that I wish the strap were a bit longer. Otherwise, definitely buy this! You won't regret it." β€”Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90 (available in three colors).

    4. A John Frieda hair serum formulated with ginseng extract and a touch of magic. This lightweight, won't-weigh-your-hair-down product works to control frizz in humid weather while also acting as a heat-protectant!

    Promising review: "I could not live without this product! I have very long hair and try to avoid blow-drying when possible. This serum keeps my frizz to a minimum when I air dry β€” even in the super humid months! I will probably use this product forever and recommend it to anyone trying to control their frizz." β€”Mandi

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. A lightweight foot file because the pedicure you got seven months ago will no longer cut it. It's sandal season, baby, so the time has come to give your callous a stern scrub.

    Promising review: "This may be my best purchase I've ever made! Seriously. I've tried all of the other foot products and honestly, they didn't do the job. This rasp has transformed my feet in the most amazing ways!!!! I had thick, ugly skin on the bottoms of my feet but after just one use, the results of this file were dramatic! This is worth 10x the price." β€”Bethzz

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. A birdhouse kit that provides a) a fun activity for your kiddos, and b) a mortgage-free home for all the winged wildlife in your backyard.

    This comes complete with everything you need: wooden panels, nails, a hanging chain, hooks, glue, paint, a brush. And instructions, of course.

    Promising review: "My 4-year-old grandkids had a great time making these and want to do more! I think this will be a memorable project for them because it provides just enough real hammer time and painting time to keep them busy. They are looking forward to hanging their houses up outside this spring." β€”tried it all

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    7. Keds x Rifle Paper Co. slip-ons featuring the print of choice this season: florals! Such a new and revolutionary pattern, and I'm sure you don't already have it in your closet. / Via @keds

    Promising review: "These shoes are super cute and stylish! I LOVE the print β€” perfect for spring. The shoes themselves are comfy just like all Keds are! I have wide feet and read reviews that they run a little narrow, so I sized up and they fit perfectly." β€”Tegan

    Get it from Keds for $64.95 (available in sizes 5-11).

    8. Vacuum storage bags for all the winter outerwear that takes up WAY too much space in your closet. More closet space = more room for spring dresses, of which you obviously will be buying more of.

    These storage bags come with a tiny valve that you attach to your vacuum (or the hand pump they provide), which takes out ALLLL the air from inside the bag and compresses all the items inside. Plus, they're made with anti-microbial materials which means that yucky-smelling mold, mildew, and bacteria won't be able to weasel their way inside.

    Promising review: "I didn't believe that this product would work, but OH HOW WRONG I WAS! I purchased the jumbo-sized bags, and I was actually able to place over 20 thick sweaters in one bag, and three leather coats, five pea coats, and additional winter clothing into another bag. I was able to store all our winter clothing away, which created a ton of space and eliminated overwhelming clutter." β€”VickyGener85

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes).

    9. Retro-inspired sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun, which you probably haven't seen in months (it's been way too cold to leave your house). Pair this with a wrinkled white tee, some denim bottoms, and that's it! You're effortlessly stylish.

    Promising review: "These are super cute and stylish. I bought them to have a cheap pair that I could wear to the beach, and I ended up wearing them every day because I got so many compliments on them. They also look more way expensive than they are and I plan on buying another pair or two for the summer!" β€”Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 11 colors).

    10. Oil blotters you'll want to stash in your purse immediately now that the humidity has returned, because these charcoal sheets will remove excess oil without messing up your makeup in the process. T-zone, you've given me no choice., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have lived with oily skin my whole life and, when spring and summer arrive, my face is even more oily. These blotting sheets are much better than the ones you get at the drugstore, and I only need to use one sheet for my entire face (as opposed to the two sheets I need to use with other brands)." β€”Boa C.

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $11.35.

    11. A Schwinn hybrid bike ready for a Pinterest photo op. This has extra storage room for up to two baskets, which will forever make your trips to the farmer's market seem πŸ‘ so πŸ‘ much πŸ‘ cooler πŸ‘.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife and ended up spending a couple hours in the garage putting it together. Once I was done, I rode it around the neighborhood and it felt like a darn Cadillac! It was amazingly smooth and easy to ride. Everything about the bike was smooth sailing, including the shifting." β€”Greg's Just Being Honest

    Get it from Amazon for $228.99 (originally $269, available in two sizes).

    12. A cold brew maker with an airtight lid and stainless steel filter that will keep your coffee fresh for up to two weeks. "No more paying unreasonably high prices for your favorite cup of Joe," I'll say to my reflection in the mirror, heart jittering as I sip my 15th cup of cold brew for the day.


    Just add up to six tablespoons of your go-to coffee beans into the filter, fill it with water, and leave it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Then, remove the filter from the pitcher and β€” BAM β€” you've got some delicious coffee.

    Promising review: "This was my first cold brewing experience, but this product made it easy! Just put your coffee in the filter, fill it with water, and forget it in the fridge for a day! Plus, I love that everything comes apart easily and can be put in the dishwasher." β€”shackelforrd

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    Read one BuzzFeeder's review on this Takeya cold brew maker.

    13. A Palladio two-in-one tint you'll want to throw in your purse for beauty looks on the go. Swipe this on your pout *and* your cheeks for a healthy flush that looks au naturale and sunkissed. / Via @palladiobeauty

    Ginseng, chamomile, camellia, and safflower are gathered into this tint to deliver a dose of color β€” but they also work to energize, hydrate, and soothe your skin.

    Promising review: "I love this product! It's great for a quick touch of color when running to the gym or running errands, plus it's so convenient to use and looks natural. The 'lovely' shade is perfect for me. I was afraid it would look orange or peach, but it's a very natural shade of blush pink." β€”Terria527

    Get it from Amazon for $7.58 (available in four shades).

    14. A plug-in air ionizer that eliminates all the nasties (odors, germs, dust mites, pollen, bad vibes) from your home for a breath of air that is actually fresh! Can you imagine?

    This hand-sized plug-in uses ultraviolet light to kill airborne bacteria (over 98% of it!) and is especially great for people who suffer from spring allergies.

    Promising review: "This little gem is a godsend. I was skeptical about it at first, but I haven't suffered from my extreme allergies since I've plugged this in. It does give off a smell when you first plug it in, but it goes away within a day or so. This is probably the best purchase I've made here on Amazon and is truly a miracle." β€”Steven Manning

    Get it from Amazon for $44.95.

    15. Kleenex tissues you'll want to have on hand at all times. I'm relieved that winter is almost over...but allergy season is here and oh wow, my nose is already running.


    Each individual pack comes with ten tissues, which makes the pack itself super compact and won't take up a ton of room in your purse.

    Promising review: "My goodness, what's not to like about Kleenex? I am a member of a sports team booster club and my job is putting together 'welcome bags' for visiting parents. In addition to local things to do and places to visit, I add some small travel necessities β€” like these packs of Kleenex. Mom may shed a tear, or it may be allergy season, but everyone needs a tissue at some time or another." β€”Pam in NC

    Get a pack of 16 from Amazon for $8.33.

    16. Room-darkening blackout curtains because the sun is shining, which is lovely! But you're trying to sleep in and don't want any distractions i.e. getting your vitamin d can wait.

    Promising review: "I love these! They really DO blackout the sunlight, which I need because I sleep during the day. They work really well, I love that the material is thick but not too thick, and the weight is perfect for my curtain rod." β€”Stephanie Wilson

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in nine colors and six sizes).

    17. Rain boots that will have you moving to Forks, Washington faster than you can say "vampire devotee". These lovely shoes will have you begging for a downpour, which is fitting because we all know what they say about April showers.


    Promising review: "I've had these rain boots for a couple of months now, and they are amazing. They're perfect for the rain and snow, plus they fit well and look stylish. Can't ask for better!" β€”Rachel J.

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95 (available in sizes 36-41 and in nine colors).

    18. Ice pop molds to take the hassle out of making delicious homemade treats: Just fill these with your favorite ingredients, stick 'em in the freezer, and enjoy. "There's a new sheriff in this fridge!" -you to that pint of half-eaten Haagen-Dazs.

    These also have a drip tray, meaning that if your ice pop starts to melt? It'll melt directly into the drip tray AKA it WON'T result in sticky hands.

    Promising review: "These are perfect for making a low carb treat! I tried these out for the first time today, and our homemade popsicles came out beautifully. I used frozen organic strawberries, coconut milk, and natural sugar substitute." β€”S. B.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    19. A cornhole set that will turn your backyard shindig into an event more competitive than the Olympics. And while hand-eye coordination is preferable, you don't need it to have a blast whilst playing (and losing) this game.


    Promising review: "This is excellent in every way! The surface has the perfect slide-to-friction ratio, and the set is durable and lightweight. Plus, everyone who has played this has had a blast! I would not hesitate to order this set again, as they make the perfect gift for a backyard party." β€”J. Wilson

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in two sizes).

    20. An Olympia rolling duffel bag perfect for the chronic overpacker. You can hypothetically shove 11 dresses, 19 tops, 18 sneakers, and your entire makeup bag in here β€” and you'll *still* have room to spare for your spring weekend getaway. Magic clearly exists.


    Promising review: "I did so much research when looking for a duffel for a recent five-day trip to NYC. I could not believe what a great bag this is for the price! It can fit an extraordinary amount of stuff inside. It's crazy. The zippers are great, the durability is great, and I haven't had any wheel or handle issues. Awesome bang for your buck!" β€”Jen Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $35.29 (available in 17 colors).

    21. Pre-filled liquid ant baits guaranteed to squash any chances of a Bug's Life reunion in your home. Sorry not sorry, Flik, but ant colonies in my kitchen popping up the second the weather gets warm = not ideal.

    These baits use a combination of Borax and sugary liquid to attract ants to the same spot and rid 'em from your home...once and for all.

    Promising review: "With the onset of really hot weather, the ants decided to try my kitchen as a refreshment counter. Having used several other products only to have the ants return, I was dreading the idea and expense of hiring professional pest control for occasional but virulent ant attacks. Then I saw this product on Amazon and decided to give it a try. If I hadn't used it myself, I wouldn't believe it. I put out the bait in the afternoon and the ants were dead and disappearing in less than 24 hours. Since the old trap had dead ants in it, it didn't look very appetizing in the kitchen so I replaced it with a new one. NO MORE ANTS!!! This product is wonderful and cost-effective. I have several more unused ant traps just waiting for the little buggers to strike again!" β€”Pamela K. Buck

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $9.14.

    22. A midi dress that I am officially dubbing THE quintessential date night dress. No more scouring your entire closet to find a dinner- and drinks-appropriate outfit. This is it!,

    Promising review: "This dress is so cute and comfortable! I also really love that there's stretchy material on the back, meaning it can accommodate larger busts. I will definitely be purchasing this in other patterns!" β€”KB

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 42 colors).

    23. A silicone massage brush that boosts the effectiveness of your daily cleanser by adding some gentle exfoliation Γ  la BPA-free bristles, which ensure your pores have been stripped of all remaining makeup. This is especially great for warmer months, when sweat gets trapped on the surface of your skin!


    This silicone cleanser dries quickly, meaning it doesn't act as a breeding ground for germs and bacteria (you know, the kind that can cause pimples and other havoc).

    Promising review: "This is awesome. I'm a licensed esthetician and know a thing or two about skincare, but unfortunately, I have such sensitive skin that most exfoliants I've tried really irritate my skin and can end up triggering eczema or psoriasis flares. This is a gentle enough way to exfoliate that it gets the job done for me without irritation. As a plus, the massage-like effect it has would aid in microcirculation and probably aid cell turnover (as exfoliation does in general)." β€”Michael Schiffmiller

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. A stretch denim jacket to replace your parka. Plus, this timeless piece is the kind you will wear from now until the end of time. To infinity and beyond. Until the cows come home. Until pigs begin to speak, sprout wings, and fly.


    Promising review: "This jacket is great and the price makes it even more amazing. I love it! It has just enough stretch to make it fit well while still feeling comfortable, and the quality and color are great." β€”TV and movie fan

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in five colors).

    25. A dice game complete with six wood dice, a dry erase board, and a canvas carrying case. If you're looking to drag your kiddos from their internet screens and into the great outdoors that is your is solution A.


    Promising review: "A fun game to play on your law or even inside on carpet. If you like the game Yahtzee, this is basically a giant version of that with huge dice and a dry erase board. Nice addition to my backyard games!" β€”Paul Ekmekjian

    Get it from Amazon for $25.85.

    26. An Elizabeth Mott eye primer capable of keeping your shadow and liner in tact all day long despite the sweat. That's right, folks! No creasing, smudging, fallout, or crying under the watch of this cruelty-free must-have. / Via @elizabethmott,

    This primer is paraben-free and lightweight, plus it's infused with pearl powder to enhance the vibrancy of your shadow AND a sebum-controlling powder to stop oily lids in their tracks.

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I have used nearly every eyeshadow primer available. From expensive to cheap...none of them hold a candle to this. I have very oily skin, but this primer lets my shadow last a full eight hours or more. I could get maybe five or six out of the other brands if I'm lucky! Thank you to Elizabeth Mott for finally making a primer that lasts! I seriously love this stuff." β€”Melissa Mae

    Get it from Amazon for $13.06.

    27. Kitten heels prrr-fect for any spring occasion. Dinner parties? Check. Happy hours? Check. Work? Check. Just a ton of checks all around!

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 18 colors).

    28. An Easter-themed three-wick candle that smells like a chocolate bunny. Now take a deep breath and let the heavenly scent of milk chocolate, fresh steamed milk, and mini marshmallows make your mouth water. / Via @bathandbodyworks

    Promising review: "WOW, they nailed the scent of a chocolate bunny! I would never ever burn chocolate (LOL) and this candle makes my house smell sweet and delicious. LOVE the Easter color, and the designed embossed lid is a great touch. This is probably my favorite candle (I purchased five) and I hope they make the same scent next year!" β€”Anonymous

    Get it from Bath & Body Works for $24.50.

    29. A tinted Australian Gold face lotion packed with SPF50, which you should already be WEARING EVERY DARN DAY. This hypoallergenic sunscreen is also oil-free, dye-free, reef-safe, and adds sheer coverage for a flawless complexion. / Via @australiangold

    This sunscreen is made from an antioxidant-rich blend of kakadu plum, eucalyptus, and red algae that won't make your skin betray you via a ginormous breakout. PLUS! It's also fragrance-free and water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.

    **adds to cart immediately**

    Promising review: "Wow! This sunscreen lives up to every positive review I have read. I use sunscreen every single day, and this performs better than most. This tint works with my fair skin, and the finish is soft, natural, and not shiny. Plus, it's more affordable than many other sunscreens." β€”Susan Hardee

    Get it from Amazon for $8.54.
