    1. A blessedly effective carpet cleaner capable of turning your brown carpet into whatever color it was when you bought it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful product. I have an older dog who can't always wait until I get home from work so accidents occasionally happen. I have a Hoover Rug Scrubber and this product is very easy to use with my machine. Carpet Miracle works amazingly well on stains and odors, even those that have set for a while. I did the carpet in the 'room of shame' twice just to be sure, although for normal soil and odors once should be more than enough. It leaves behind a wonderful clean, fresh scent, and the carpet feels and looks wonderful. I plan on continuing to use this product to keep my carpets clean and my home smelling fresh." —Vicky Faurot

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

    2. A nail and cuticle oil to repair all the damage you've wreaked on your paws after chewing at your nails.

    amazon.com

    This oil has jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E to help promote strong nails and soften cuticles.

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. Tried everything. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it two to three times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4 ounce refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    3. A grout pen so you can easily cover up unsightly tile grout without having to, you know, scrub them clean.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It works like white-out for your floors!

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. I'm very happy with this product!" —Jenelle

    Get it on Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    4. Glossier Solution that gets rid of dead skin and clears complexion, leaving you glowing.

    Glossier

    This cruelty-free chemical exfoliator uses several acids (AHA, BHA, and PHA) to unclog pores, fight acne, and banish dark spots — all while moisturizing, conditioning, and exfoliating your skin. Plus, it's a lot more gentle on skin than a physical exfoliant. Check out our full review of the Glossier Solution.

    Promising review: "I was really skeptical about buying this, but I'm so happy I did! I started using this about a month ago: I first noticed that my skin texture was WAYYY smoother, and then I noticed that all of my active acne fully went away. This product has also been a lifesaver for diminishing dark spots! I use this product every night, follow it up with rosehip oil, and it's perfect." —Alexa

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    5. Jumbo divider sticky notes so you can jot down some summary notes on each section in your notebook. Congratulations on becoming the most organized person in class!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These sticky notes are excellent. They come in a booklet, with a clear cover over and a card-like paper with a blue mandala pattern at the back, which is really neat and beautiful. The colors are quite neon and bright and look exactly as the picture shows. The tabs are neat and noticeable at any angle, and are 2.4 cm or about 0.8 inches in length. The paper note itself is 14.8 cm or 5.8 inches in length. They came in neatly and safely packaged, with no dirt or paper creasing in sight." —Malik

    Get a single pack from Amazon for $5.61 (available in packs of 1–12).

    6. A wood polish that can miraculously erase water stains and scratches. Everyone will be asking when you found the time you buy a brand new coffee table.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    7. A jewelry cleaning pen to bring that brilliant shine back to your cloudy gems.

    left: blurry gem ring right: clear and clean ring
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I worked several years in a fine jewelry store that sold this product. We used the dazzle stick from time to time to add a quick shine to merchandise that was just tried on and on days our jeweler was not there to professionally clean items. I was always impressed with the instant shine the diamond stick provided. The brush tip is very helpful for getting under the stones and in the setting where gunk builds up reducing that brilliant shine. I recently got engaged and immediately purchased a diamond dazzle stick of my own. It's the perfect way to quickly give my ring some shine before leaving the house. You simply brush, rinse, dry and go. I don't feel this product replaces the need to professionally clean your jewelry every now and then, but it does help with the maintenance of that new shiny sparkle." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    8. A Blueland cleaning kit with everything you need to tackle your less-than-sparkling-clean home.

    Blueland

    The cleaning solutions are safe around kids and pets, and come in reusable bottles (environment, you're welcome). The kit comes with four bottles and four tablets to dissolve in the bottles with water. You get: multi-surface, glass + mirror, bathroom, and foaming hand soap.

    Promising review: "Always trying to find ways to live more sustainably and with less waste. Blueland is a perfect way to do that with re-using the same bottles and you can re-up whenever you need to. I ended up purchasing another foaming hand soap bottle for the bathroom — I would order extra of the hand soap tablets because it does go pretty quick compared to the rest." —Cait F.

    Get it from Blueland for $39.

    9. A pair of blue light-blocking glasses to help prevent eye strain from staring at a computer all day. Now your only office-related headaches come from that annoying copier.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE these!! I plan on buying these again in a different color because I love them so much. I keep them at work and wear them to prevent headaches while staring at the computer all day. I have not gotten a single headache since starting to wear these." —Amazon Customer

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

    10. A bag of powdered cheddar great for making your own "box" mac and cheese or for adding a kick to your homemade popcorn.

    amazon.com

    Other reviewers like it in their potatoes, bread, and scrambled eggs.

    Promising review: "My 6-year-old son is super picky with his mac and cheese (as in, would only eat Kraft) so when he had to go gluten free it was one of the things he missed the most. We tried all of the prepackaged gluten-free ones and he hated them. We found that he liked Barilla brand gluten-free elbow pasta so I needed to find a gluten-free cheese to go with with it. This was a hit! I mixed it with a little milk and butter, and he ate two bowls. This is real cheese, all natural ingredients and they suggest keeping it refrigerated. I'm glad we finally found a replacement for his mac and cheese!" —Naomi A. Dejesus Howard

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    11. A set of drill brushes so effective, you'll be shocked how clean your home used to be.

    amazon.com

    The set comes with a two-inch flat brush, a four-inch flat brush, and a round brush. The drill isn't included, but you can grab a basic Black and Decker one ($27.83 on Amazon) that'll do the trick.

    Promising review: "I thought my hard water stains would never come off my shower doors, but I bought this awesome brush set, and it's amazing! I’ve tried all the hacks — drier sheets, clean erasers, lemon, vinegar — nothing works like this brush! I used Zep shower cleaner with it! In the picture, the side on the right is the part of the door I cleaned, and I still have to clean the left side." —Traci D.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors and stiffness levels).

    12. A clarifying shampoo you can use to cleanse your hair of any lingering product build-up and residue. Using this every now and then can lead to more volume and sometimes softer hair.

    the bottle of shampoo
    amazon.com

    This non-irritating shampoo should be used once a week, or even once a month if you have dry hair. I use this whenever my hair is feeling a little weighed down and it completely revitalizes it.

    Promising review: "I bought this because of the low price, but it is AMAZING! It smells heavenly, it clarifies my scalp thoroughly, and definitely gets rid of build-up. I use it once every two weeks. You HAVE to follow up with a very moisturizing deep conditioner, let it sit for a while then comb through your hair. It's a new staple for me." —NickyC

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    13. An ink and stain remover ready to pick a fight with even the toughest of marks. Permanent marker? We'll see about that.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amodex took ink out of my expensive scrubs. A pen leaked in my pocket and made a thick glob of ink stain on the scrub jacket and a little on the pants. After using the Amodex and washing in cold water, there is no evidence of a stain and the fabric looks exactly how it looked before the stain. There was no damage or discoloration of the fabric. Thank you, Amodex. This product just saved me the $75 that it would have cost to replace the scrubs." —Michelle hammer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.85.

    14. An Atlas Coffee Club membership that sends you bags of delicious coffee from all over the world.

    Atlas Coffee Club

    You can get a half-bag, a single bag, or a double bag of coffee from all over the world. Each box comes with tasting notes, brewing tips, and a postcard.

    My coworker had this to say about this subscription: "Main takeaways: This coffee is delicious, Insta-worthy, and makes for a both practical and super-cute gift, and for that reason, I stan Atlas Coffee Club." Read our full review of Atlas Coffee to learn more.

    Get it from Atlas Coffee Club starting at $9 a month.

    15. A stain-removing spray so you can reclaim your bathroom from that horrible orange glow! Orange is the worst color, especially when your bathroom is supposed to be white.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    16. A toilet scrubbing wand (the magic kind, maybe?) that'll turn your yuckiest toilet into something usable again.

    left: brown dirty toilet right: clean toilet
    amazon.com

    This wizardly kit comes with one wand, a caddy, and six disposable scrubber refills.

    Promising review: "Do you ever look at your toilet brush in disgust and resentment? How is a dirty used-up brush still sitting in your throne room? You clean your bathroom, but then you put that sucker down in its place and it's just mocking you. It's never truly immaculate. Never knowing true cleanliness. Fear no more. Now you can shine your porcelain throne and not have to worry about a used up toilet brush mocking your clean, sparkling bathroom. Gone are the days of breathing in dirty poop particles from the reusable potty-cleaning-brush-thingy. Clorox Toilet Wand: the answer to your prayers if you want an easy, deep clean and to toss away the brush after you're done. Fast, cheap, and easy. Just how we like to clean." —Juliana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.44.

    17. A pet grooming glove with two key functions: removing excess fur and giving your pet the most luxurious petting of their life.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Plus you can throw this bad boy right into the washer.

    Promising review: "My cat never really enjoyed being brushed; we had one of those ones with flexible metal bristles. He would sit for a very short time and then walk away. Not anymore! My cat is very skittish so the sound of the velcro scared him in the beginning, but he quickly got used to it. He lays still, purrs, allows me to get his under belly a bit, and even allows me to groom his fur 'against the grain' which he would never do. Love it!" —Alicia Mead

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in right or left hand styles).

    18. An itty-bitty toenail brace set capable of fixing your painful ingrown toenail problem.

    amazon.com

    The kit comes with 10 toenail braces and the materials needed to apply it.

    Promising review: "I never realized how curved my toenails were. I thought the pain I had was just normal and a fact of life. Only when I read about the Curve Correct product, did I realize that I had a major problem, and it could be resolved! Now I'm on the way to normal, flat toenails, that DON'T grow curved into my skin!" —Jamie H.

    Get the kit from Amazon for $44.99.

    19. A hanger organizer to solve your horrible hanger-nest problem you've been suffering through in silence all these years.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"—Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $18.30 (available in six packs).

    20. Two pairs of baby feet masks for getting the peeling snake feet of your dreams. JK! After the peeling stops, you get nice, soft tootsies.

    Just pop on the booties for an hour, wash your feet, and marvel as your feet start shedding layers of dead skin.

    Promising review: "My feet have never felt softer! I do recommend wearing socks often, otherwise your couch and blankets will be covered in sloughed off skin! No pain or discomfort. I love it!" —Nicole C

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $27.95.

    21. A doggy foot cleaner to quickly get your pup's paws squeaky clean so they can get back to lounging on your furniture instead of the expensive pet bed you got them.

    paw goes into bristled tube
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was ridiculous. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

    Get it on Amazon for $12.59.

    22. A zombie face mask kit that'll bring your skin back to life, in a good, Rick Grimes-approved way.

    before: reviewer face with some fine lines during: face with wrinkled, zombie like skin from mask drying after: face looking brighter and bouncier
    amazon.com

    This mask is made with albumin, a component from eggs that helps moisturize skin. It claims to help tighten pores, hydrate, promote elasticity, remove dead skin, and balance pH. To use, mix the included powder and liquid together with a brush. Spread the mixture evenly over your face and leave until it begins to dry. It'll create a sort of ~undead~ look, hence the name. Wash after 10 or 15 minutes and enjoy your freshly hydrated face! If this looks familiar to you, it's apparently similar to the Hanacure facial that Instagram loves.

    Promising review: "I own a salon and have worked in them for 19 years and never in my life have I used or seen something so amazing. I have read all about the Hanacure facial but it is expensive and always on back order. This is the same thing AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell bad at all. There is a veryyyy slight smell to it but hardly noticeable and not something I'd complain about. This has natural ingredients and boy does it work. It sucked every thing out of my pores and shrunk them and all of the lines on my face are GONE. YES GONE. Usually I have to have Botox for my forehead. Well not anymore that's for sure!!" —Aja Rieger Cooke

    Get a pack of eight treatments from Amazon for $29.98.

    23. A set of eyebrow razors for quick touch-ups wherever you want to banish unwanted hairs.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a 100% painless and incredibly easy alternative to waxing or plucking. A few quick swipes gets rid of peach fuzz and I never have to worry about breaking out because of it. Also, it doesn't make hair grow back coarser or darker." —Ellen R.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    24. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets possibly made out of fairy dust, because they'll totally wipe away years of grime in mere minutes.

    before: brown bottle during: fizzy liquid in bottle after: clean bottle
    amazon.com

    Just fill your dirty mug with water, add a tablet, let fizz for half an hour, and then rinse!

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. A pair of lacy bands that protect your thighs from rubbing and chafing.

    lacy bands on thighs
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I took a trip to Paris and decided to buy these after being on the fence — I knew we'd be walking around the city a ton. I've struggled with Swedish Fish red–thighs when I walk long distances, and the various powders/lotions I've tried hadn't been doing it for me. I bought these and WOW do they work! My thighs were comfy and secure, and I walked MILES in these. If you experience painful thigh chafing these are for you!" —Shelby Smith

    Get them on Amazon for $16.95+ (eight colors, some available both in lace and solid).

    26. A pack of dimming stickers to cover annoyingly bright lights without completely covering them.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are great. I have a hard time sleeping with lights on in my room and so many devices recently have incredibly bright LEDs. I did notice that some lights require more than one sticker to dim them to my desired level but this is really an advantage as you could adjust the level of brightness by the number of stickers you place over it." —MATTHEW M PHELPS

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    27. A bottle of Mike's Hot honey that seriously tastes good on everything. Pizza, wings, veggies, dumplings, salad, cocktails, ice cream, everything!

    Amazon

    Tip: If you love really spicy food, try their new Extra Hot version!

    Promising review: "I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!" —Jeff R. Clow

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    28. A liquid eyeliner with a stamp on the other end so you can just ~wing~ it when you want dramatic cat eyes without the drama of trying to draw them on yourself.

    Amazon

    The set comes with two pens so you have a right and left stamper.

    Promising review: "My daughter had a birthday about a month ago and I wanted to try something new for it. I have always wanted to have the 'cat eye' look however I could never get it just right. I found these cat eye eyeliner stamps online and decided to give them a try. It took me a few times to get them just right so thank goodness I ordered in enough time before the birthday so I could figure out how to use the stamps. LOL! The stamps are very helpful in getting just the right look! Because it was her 1st birthday, I cried my eyes out when we sing to her. I kept turning to my husband to make sure I didn’t have black lines running down my face. He assured me every time that my makeup was fine. I absolutely love this look and the quality of the product is amazing! I have already recommended this to all of my friends and I will be buying some more!" —Ariel Ben Israel

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    29. Anti-nausea wristbands that utilize pressure points so you can lose yourself on a nice boat trip without losing your lunch.

    Promising review: "I have bought this for the third time. Not only is it a great idea, I wear them 24 hours a day seven days a week. I suffer from extreme vertigo and having these on I have no vertigo whatsoever. They say not to wear them all the time but I say screw them if it works, do it!" —C51

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.60.

    30. A weekly meal planner pad with room to plan meals, a perforated shopping list section, and a magnet. Keep this on the fridge and tear off your shopping list when it's time to hit the grocery store.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this meal planner and shopping list! In my house, it was constantly 'what do you want to eat,' 'what do we have,' blah blah, etc. Now, I can lay out the week's meals and get my shopping list prepared so I make sure I don't miss anything at the grocery store. The magnet on the back is strong and holds it to the fridge perfectly, even with the door opening and closing constantly. The perforation is good and doesn't stray off into the paper like some cheaper papers do. Will be buying again when my current one gets low." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    31. A waffle stick maker for delicious, dippable waffles any time. Life is so much better when you have a waffle in each hand.

    small gadget that makes four waffle sticks
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I do not normally rave about kitchen appliances but I love this little guy! I impulse bought it after reading some reviews and craving waffles. It seriously is the best waffle maker I have ever used. We had a more expensive one that would flip to cook evenly, but this thing has that beat by a mile. I have used it a dozen times and the waffles come out perfect every time. I spray with vegetable oil before pouring in 1/3 cup of batter (as other reviewers have noted it does not come with a measuring cup) and then set a timer for four minutes. When I am done, I just unplug it and let it cool, then wipe it off with a cloth. I know the color and cartoonish logo may turn some people off but I seriously recommend this iron to everyone." —leahas

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    32. Compression bands that offer arch support, keeping your feet happy and possibly protected from the pain of planters fasciitis.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I put these on after they came in the mail, wore them for about an hour, then as I was resting on the couch, I fell into the kind of deep sleep that one only dreams of. This was the most epic, most restorative nap I can remember. The kind of nap Joey Tribbiani and Ross Geller had in Friends. I am kinda afraid to take them off now. I wear them with my flip-flops, under my socks in tennis shoes, and to bed. My feet feel great. As for whether or not they contributed to my most perfect nap, I don't know for sure, but I'm rolling with it." —Texas Sandra Dee

    Get them from Amazon for $13.95 (available in two styles).
