    1. A Crack'em egg cracker and spoon rest about to make breakfast a whole lot tidier. Say so long and farewell to countertops stained with runny yolk and shell bits making their way into pancake batter — this TikTok famous gadget makes cooking ~over~ easy.


    Promising review: "I absolutely cannot believe I'm doing this. I got this because I am ALWAYS having to pick out the shell when I crack an egg, whether for breakfast or my baking. Since buying this I have cracked dozens of eggs without ANY shells in it. To say I am happy is an understatement. If you don't have one you should rush to get one. We are going to get them for wedding gifts when we know that the couple loves to do their own cooking. Kudos to whoever thought of this. It works perfectly, every time." —Edwin Myers

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

    2. Thumb grip caps compatible with Nintendo Switch consoles that make the impossible, possible — Animal Crossing will become an even more joyous experience. These look adorable *and* help you feel more ~in control~ whilst you build your virtual empire.

    3. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing roller stick made with volcanic stone to give greasy T-zones a permanent boot. Quickly whip this out between Zoom meetings for a shine-free forehead that required no annoying setting powder ~or~ any mattifying primers.


    Promising review: "This rolling device is like pure magic. Or voodoo?! You simply roll it around your oily areas and BOOM the oil magically vanishes into the ball never to be seen again! 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! I eventually got added to a waiting list here on Amazon and once they had it in stock again, they charged my card and sent it my way! If you have the chance to purchase this and you have oily skin, get yourself on the waiting list if you need to and just kick it until it shows up. You will be pleased. Thank me later." —Veronica Cooper

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    4. A soap pump dispenser I have one word for: brilliant. Doing dishes in a cluttered kitchen with limited counter space is both my nightmare and reality, so this convenient gizmo (where you can squeeze soap directly onto a sponge with one hand) literally made my heart go pitter-patter when I saw it., @toponlinefinds / Via

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I leave my sponge on top and do not have to reach under the sink to get my bulky Dawn dish soap bottle from under the sink every time I need it. It looks clean and my friends that have noticed it said something about it. I highly recommend it." —Lisa Camarena

    Get it from Amazon for $9.34 (available in two colors).

    5. David Bowie-inspired lightning bolt earrings to add a bold statement to even the most mundane outfit. Black leggings? Wrinkled white tee? Throw these on and suddenly you're a trendy style blogger with hair that isn't messy, it's tousled.

    the red and blue lightning bot earrings
    ElectricWardrobeVntg / Etsy

    Promising review: "These earrings were all I wanted and more! A perfect size, beautifully made, and absolutely stunning on. Shipping was a little late, but that was purely as a result of Covid, but other than that they were perfect! Would recommend." —Maeve M

    Get it from ElectricWardrobeVntg on Etsy for $14.44.

    6. Silicone food huggers best described by one word: genius. Blocks of cheese and butter stick hunks will no longer be forced to brave the elements (the elements = your fridge) or tossed in a plastic bag — these prolong freshness, reduce waste, and save you money in the long run.

    Promising review: "These huggers are handy to have and will save money and waste. I used to use a plastic bag every time I bought a chunk of cheese but no more! I am trying to reduce waste in my household and these are a great place to start." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $11.93.

    7. A cabin incense burner reminiscent of all the wonderful Airbnb homes I've saved to a "middle of nowhere" board. I'll make the trip one day (let's dream), but right now I'll settle for watching smoke billow out of this adorable little chimney.

    the log cabin incense holder
    Lockwood Shop

    Psst, this includes 10 fresh balsam wood incenses.

    Lockwood is a queer- and woman-owned shop based in Astoria, Queens (the best borough but I am not biased) that sells everything from kitschy gifts and greeting cards to awesome denim and concert tees.

    Get it from Lockwood for $14.95.

    8. A cubic zirconia ring cleverly designed as a fidget spinner, which is great to wear whilst watching nerve-wracking TV: long-awaited Oprah interviews, scenes in which the swamp lady is mentioned during The Haunting of Bly Manor, etc.


    Promising review: "I LOVE these rings. They're gorgeous, they sparkle beautifully in the sunlight, they fit well, and the spinning is so satisfying. It spins very smoothly and can go on for quite a while. I've been wearing the silver one daily for almost two months, and there's no sign of fading either on the metal or in the rhinestones. It looks as new as the day I bought it. I used to carry a fidget cube around, but this is much more discreet, prettier, and since I can just wear it all day I'm never stuck without something to play with. I highly recommend!" —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors).

    9. Handmade pressed floral bookmarks to make your heart pitter-patter if you love bouquets but hate upkeep. These are made with real flowers — simply let the seller know your preferred ~color scheme~, if you'd like round or square corners and a tassel, and voila! A garden in your novel. No thorns. No snipping stems. No changing out the water.

    Kayliereads / Etsy

    Promising review: "I’ve been using recipes or extra pieces of paper as bookmarks for years so when I saw these beautiful bookmarks I knew I had to upgrade. I let the seller pick one for me and she did not disappoint it’s so beautiful and I’m obsessed. It’s very high quality as well and I expect it to last me for years. Will definitely be buying from again." —Karnee

    Get them from Kayliereads on Etsy for $7.99.

    10. A heat-changing ceramic mug that reveals a scene from the ~ocean blue~ whenever you pour in your morning cup of caffeine. Raise your hand if bioluminescence and giant squid terrify you more than it reasonably should!

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    11. Modeling clay I'll probably purchase for my next weekend project because — not to brag — but my middle school art teacher told me I had promise. Over 19,000 reviewers (both full-fledged artists and newbies alike) swear that this air-hardening clay is easy to sculpt and wonderful for the price.,

    Promising review: "I love this clay! It is inexpensive and great for my craft projects, and very easy for my kids to use as well. It is very lightweight when dry, so it is good for jewelry, and it is easy to sand down any rough edges. Just what I was looking for!" —Lauren Lovato

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two colors and two sizes).

    12. A Kopari hydrating body wash for complexions that are d-r-y. This vegan formula enlists the help of coconut water, organic aloe vera juice, and sea kelp to deliver moisture that won't irritate even *the* most sensitive skin.

    the pink and white body wash bottles

    Promising review: "Love love love!! The smells takes you away to a tropical paradise. It is so gentle for my sensitive skin and a small amount will go a long way." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    13. Japanese Daifuku Mochi, which reviewers swear are sold at the Japan Pavilion in Epcot. These are sure to give your taste buds the thrill of their l-i-f-e: This particular kind has cream and strawberry jam filling, plus a light sprinkling of powdered sugar.,

    Promising review: "YAAAAAY! They sell these at Epcot Japan pavilion and I AM OBSESSED!!! I posted a pic on a Facebook Disney page trying to find another seller for these and thank you Amazon!!! These are huge mochi. They're super soft and mostly mochi with just a little paste in the center. The paste has a smoother texture than bean paste and a much better flavor. There's finely powdered sugar on the outside. It is a burst of flavor and delight in your mouth. SO GOOD!" —Andrea

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $7.35.

    14. A beginner embroidery kit for a hobby that is *not* another Netflix docu-series. This comes with patterned cloth, a hoop, instructions, a floss thread set, and needles for a foolproof activity that also results in some awesome home decor.

    the embroidery hoop with floral design

    Promising review: "Perfect way to get started again after 40 years! This kit includes everything you need with a review of the stitches. I throughly enjoyed it. Perfect for beginners or fun for the experienced. Plenty of thread with a lot left over. I am ready for my next project!" —Susan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 28 designs).

    15. An air pressure wine bottle opener because I am an adult, I have consumed many a $7 red, and yet — there is nothing that makes my palms sweat faster than a manual corkscrew opener. The cork breaks in half about two-thirds of the time and I just no longer have that level of patience.,

    This even comes with a foil cutter!

    Promising review: "Way easier than struggling trying to pry a cork out with a traditional corkscrew. Just insert the needle straight into the cork and pump a few times with your hand over the apparatus until the cork starts to work out, then another pump or two, and pop, the cork is in your hand. The little thing for cutting the top of the foil off the bottle is very slick too. This is the easiest way to open wine I have ever seen, short of having the waiter do it." —Finestkind

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 11 colors).

    16. A portable paint palette set for anyone who fancies themself a modern-day da Vinci (one with a stronger appreciation of eyebrows). Reviewers swear that the paint quality is fantastic for the price, plus the palette is refillable which means cha-ching! Money saved in the long run.

    The full paint palette set with 18 cups of paint

    You'll get 18 colors (including two white).

    Promising review: "Colors are vibrant and opaque, while still drying matte. They're easily workable and the inclusion of two white pans is a huge plus for me, as it's always the color that goes first! The palette itself is durable and well-made, snapping tightly into place when you're ready to store your paints. At first I was concerned about the colors drying, but frankly there's so much paint that I don't see that happening anytime soon as long as I continue to spritz them with water and stir them a bit occasionally. My favorite aspect of this palette is the amount of paint in each cup, I often find myself being afraid to waste paint with my more expensive tube gouache, but that's not an issue at all with this palette. Overall, this is an amazing palette for people who are learning gouache, and experienced artists alike. It gives you a genuine gouache experience, and lends itself to lots of experimentation without fear of wasting expensive paint." —analee

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in four colors, with and without paint brushes).

    17. A toothpaste topper that has brought me more joy in this past minute than I've experienced in the past year. ::searches for Smash Mouth on Spotify::

    CasualChicken / Etsy

    Get it from CasualChicken on Etsy for $6.99.

    18. An initial ring made with an adjustable band, that way you can plant this on any finger of your choosing — no more having to scrounge through order histories to remember if your index finger is a size four, six, or eight.

    Promising review: "It looks very good! It looks like real gold. I have worn it four times, with perfume and while getting slightly wet, and it hasn’t tarnished one bit! So it's a great product, especially for the price!" —Belper

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39 (available in letters A–Z).

    19. A handy citrus sprayer that can be inserted directly into zesty fruits and voila! Fresh lemon juice will take your meal from microwaved to Michelin star, even sparing you the pain of burning paper-cuts in the process.

    Promising review: "These little gadgets really work!!! Now I always have lemon juice ready." —tuttifrutti1046

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $13.99.

    20. Zip Top silicone containers anyone who eats or cooks needs to buy, pronto. Single use plastic can't hold a candle to these must-have kitchen items: Some are designed with a flat bottom to remain open on countertops, make for easy pouring (pancake batter has met its match), and keep food fresh for a longer period of time.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland

    "If you're looking for a set of reusable bags to reduce your waste, look no further. This Zip Top silicone set is just about perfect. The eight-piece full set comes with cups (with circular flat bottoms), dishes (with elongated flat bottoms) and bags (for easy taking to-go without taking up a bunch of room). They're airtight, and just EASY PEASY to use — aka I don't have to track down a matching lid. Half-eaten oranges, leftover crepe batter, granola, all live handily in these pretty lavender containers. The pointed sides make for effortless pouring — everything from shaking granola into my morning yogurt to dispensing thin crepe batter into a pan for a weekend breakfast.

    They're dishwasher-safe (on the top AND bottom racks), freezer-safe, AND microwave safe, so you can truly say goodbye forever to disposable bags. They haven't retained any sorts of staining or smells and wash up beautifully. At just over $11 a pop when you break it down, they're not *cheap* but when you add up box after box after box of plastic bags, you'll make up for the cost in no time flat. I haven't been ~on the go~ much in the past year (🙃), but when I do I'll definitely use these to bring snacks to the office. And they come in pretty pastel colors that personally just make me happy to look at in my fridge." —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Deputy Editor

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in five colors, plus individually and in smaller sets).

    21. A backless lace bodysuit which makes me think that the phrase "hummuna hummuna hummuna" comes to mind. A wearable work of art that further motivates me to toss out the underwire for a day? Yes. Absolutely.

    Promising review: "This bodysuit has become one of my favorite pieces. I love how comfy it is and how sexy it looks at the same time. I absolutely adore the back detail. I had a lot of people asking me where I got it from, and they got super surprised when I told them it's from Amazon!" —Camila Pontes

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 11 colors).

    22. Handcrafted luxury goat milk soap available in several delectable scents: Think rosemary mint, lavender chamomile, clean cotton, and raspberry vanilla.

    23. A hand-powered chopper to save you blood, sweat, and tears... literally. Chopping onions (or veggies, fruits nuts, herbs, and more) will no longer be a sobbing affair thanks to this small-but-mighty kitchen gadget.,

    Promising review: "This chopper is amazing!! I love cooking, but used to absolutely HATE chopping onions... until someone gave me this chopper! Now I simply have to quarter the onion, throw it in the chopper, pull the handle about 10–15 times, and they're ready to be used! No more teary eyes or spending a long time chopping onions. The cup is big enough to fit a whole onion... I think the capacity is 3 cups. There's tons of other uses to this as well... you can chop pretty much anything from herbs, veggies and fruits, to making salsa and guacamole." —Valjulia

    Get it from Amazon for $15.30+ (available in two colors).

    24. A customizable cookie cutter to turn your treats from basic to Pinterest-worthy in une seconde. Are your cookies burnt? Accidentally used salt instead of sugar? The choc chip ratio is off? Doesn't matter — they'll look so good that their taste will be irrelevant.

    25. I Dew Care mini scoops facial trio, which comes with bite-sized versions of three cult-favorite masks: Berry Groovy with raspberry extract and exfoliating strawberry seeds to brighten, Matcha Mood with vitamin B3 and green tea to soothe, and Birthday Cake with hyaluronic acid to hydrate.

    reviewer photo of the three face masks

    Promising review (birthday cake): "It smells like the most delightful birthday you could ever imagine. It comes with a spatula applicator and the mask itself glides on the skin effortlessly. Rinsed off spectacularly. Does not make skin feel tight and or irritated just leaves a dewy hydrated complexion." —Grace

    Get it from Amazon for $17.50.

    26. Korean Exfoliating Bath Washcloths described by one reviewer as a solution for back-of-the-arms bumps. It's about time we retire that mesh loofah and move on to greener pastures — the pastures in this context being a green washcloth capable of revealing a smoother, softer surface with a simple few swipes. You are about to shed so much dead skin.,

    Promising review: "While the pockets are small (as others said, they shrink when wet, too!) they fit fine around my four fingers to form a mitt to use for scrubbing. I bought these because I read somewhere they help with keratosis pilaris. I have that on my upper arms and have never found anything that works until now! I was skeptical because literally nothing else has made an improvement before and now this has eliminated it. Will definitely buy again and hope it keeps working!" —Emily S.

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $4.

    27. Reusable silicone straws for guzzling down iced coffee with gusto. The secret perk of this particular set? Cleanliness! Snap closures mean you can open the straws in half to ensure they're dry and gunk-free! Just give 'em a good wipe down. No more "cleaning" brushes required.,

    Promising review: "I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean and I don’t love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options but they don’t work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies, that I drink daily, and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn’t be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again." —M. Alexandra

    Get them from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in four colors).

    28. A watering funnel that gives you no choice but to water your plants. The amount of water that has pooled on my floor rather than into the roots of my ZZ... ridiculous, quite frankly! This is effective, takes up no extra space, doesn't look like an eyesore, and gets a task (one that you constantly put off) out of the way.

    water being funneled into plant

    Promising review: "Do you have a lot of plants? Are they crowded together and hard to see where on pot begins? Or bushy plants that spread out low and wide? These will help in all of these situation. My plants are happy and my floors are dry." —k gannon

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    29. A handheld bag sealer if you've ever bit into a stale Dorito and thought, wow, why have I been forsaken. Use this portable device to secure allllllll the foods that go bleh pretty quickly after the bag has been opened: chips, cereals, even frozen foods!

    Promising review: "Wish I would’ve bought this sooner! Not only is it so cute but it’s so easy to use. I can finally close my bag of chips after picking at it! It’s magnetic so I can stick it right on my fridge and it has a little sharp knife that you can unlock to use to open the bag again! So great!" —JB

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    30. Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence – it takes dull, tired skin and leads it greener pastures (*insert idyllic farm image here*). Hyaluronic acid and panthenol provide ultimate hydration, and drumroll por favor — it absorbs quickly! No grease. No stick. Apply this before moisturizer to make sure all that goodness gets locked in.

    two clear bottles of the essence with black cap

    Promising review: "Yes yes YES. Lightweight and effective. I heard about this product through a YouTuber and wasn’t sure if the product would live up to the hype. Now, it’s a staple in my morning facial routine." —JSB

    Get it from Amazon for $14.20.

    31. Reusable glowing chopsticks because the force is with both you *and* the takeout meal you just ordered. These BPA-free lightsabers are officially the only utensil you'll want to use at dinner. Knives and forks = boring.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

    Get them from Amazon for $11.98.

    32. Ultra pigmented lip stains that pay homage to your beverage of choice — red red wine. Reviewers swear these tints are smudge- and transfer-proof and, adorable vino-inspired packaging aside, you'll get six wearable shades for ~$10.

    ::major Billy Joel voice:: "A bottle of red.... and another bottle of red... and another..." —you opening this Amazon package.

    Promising review: "These are the cutest lip stains I’ve ever seen! The best part is they work. Love the colors and they are definitely a staining. Feels like there is nothing there and they don’t get on your mask. Love love love." —Debbie Corley

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $9.99.

    33. A silicone mold so you can finally try your hand at the epic hot cocoa bombs that have invaded your TikTok feed. This hunk of silicone is nonstick, flexible, dishwasher-safe, and can even be used for lava cakes (*drools*) or handmade soap.

    Promising review: "I used these to make hot chocolate bombs and they were the perfect size! Super easy to use, the chocolate popped right out with no issues, and was so shiny!" —jenna

    Get it from Amazon for $9.08.

    34. A jar of TICARVE Dust Cleaning Gel here to — and I cannot believe I'm about to say this — make cleaning fun. This goo hunk traps dust mites and dirt with relish. And In moments. I don't know who needs to hear this but...your car vents? They need this.

    The TICARVE Dust Cleaning Gel removing dust from a car's air vent.

    Promising review: "When I first saw this product I thought 'No way is that really going to work' but for the price, it was worth a try. I got it within two days of purchasing it — and it truly works. I immediately used it on my laptop keyboard and my PC keyboard. It really did pull all of the dust and whatnot out from in between the keys. It feels damp to your skin and doesn't really leave a residue, the smell is not harsh and is really barely there (not like an antiseptic or harsh chemical at all). I really like it." —BRickard

    Get it from Amazon for $8.69.

    35. A cross-body purse embellished with a dainty bumblebee for a 🐝 buzz-worthy staple 🐝 that shall be worn all the time. Consider this the little black dress of your bag game.,

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful purse when you don't want to carry too much stuff or if you are a mom that still needs room for her personal belongings and not stashing your things into the diaper bag. The little bag itself feels really soft and looks pretty but classy. It has plenty of space in the main compartment and the other two are good for keeping your hand cream, lip balm, sunscreen, glasses, cards holder etc. All I can say is you won't regret buying this one." —Gaby&Ricardo

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98 (available in 44 colors/styles).

    36. The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook, aka an easy way to bring the magic of Dole Whip into your kitchen. This treasure book features over 100 Disney-inspired recipes that are definitively better than a FastPass — think Mickey macarons, the perfect churro, and (of course) DOLE WHIP.

    Promising review: "Beautiful hardcover cookbook with so many yummy Disney recipes from the parks! There is lots of Disney foodie history in it, plus recipes that look easy to follow with high quality ingredients. There are fun maps of each of the parks inside where the food is located from which makes it fun. As an avid Disney fan, I have never seen a cookbook like this." —Nicole
