    35 Fun And Interesting Products You May Have Never Seen Before

    Just when you think you've seen it all, you get hit with a lefties candle, a flamingo wine holder, and mushroom coffee.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 metal flamingo wine holder who hugs onto your pinot noir almost as tightly as you do.


    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    2. Avocado Smash β€” a fun card game to play when you or a friend is feeling in the ~pits~.


    You need at least two players to play but there is no limit to the amount of players. Whoever is most obsessed with avocados goes first. You start by putting down cards and saying what number turn it is. Once you hit 15, start over. If a player puts down a number card and it matches the number they say out loud, everyone needs to place their hands in the middle. Last person to put their hand down has to take up all the cards. There are also guacamole, smash, and reverse cards to keep things interesting. The first person to get rid of all their cards wins.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my granddaughter. My granddaughters love to sit down and play board games every weekend and have a ball doing it. But this is a game changer. :) They got it out and were playing it in their room and I heard screaming and laughing and fun noises, coming from the room. It is a fast paced, easy to learn, very competitive game they absolutely loved. I have never heard this reaction from any game they played, and everyone of them had fun doing it. No exceptions. I think it is a great way to bring your family together for good quality time, and this will keep them off the devices for a while and bring everyone a bit closer together for moments of fun and memories. Get it! :)" β€”Millie The Writer

    3. A pack of makeup removing towels to wipe away any trace of eyeliner with JUST WATER!


    Promising review: "I was skeptical of these, but now I'm pretty sure they're what Mulan's outfit was made of when she wiped her makeup off on her sleeve in the movie. Even totally dry they're pretty impressive about taking all of my makeup (including waterproof eyeliner and mascara) in a couple swipes. I like to use a little micellar water to make my skin feel a little cleaner. It's nice not to burn through so many cotton pads." β€”RachelMTop

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $7.49.

    4. Lightsaber pencils that won't necessarily make you better at crosswords, but might give you Jedi-level confidence when attacking the Sunday puzzle.


    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $17.97.

    5. A piggyback backpack, because it's not fair that your back has to start hurting right at the age you're most likely to have kids jumping on it.


    Promising review: "Easy to use and get my tiny human on it. It's great since he can see and I don't have to keep holding or chasing him. When he wants down, we are able to make that happen." β€”Chelsie

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in four styles).

    6. A pack of coffee face masks with green tea extract, portulaca oleracea extract, and chamomile water to help your face feel as refreshed as you do after your vente Americano.


    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $24.99.

    7. Speaking of coffee, a box of instant mushroom coffee, which β€” hear me out β€” works similarly to regular bean juice, but apparently without the jitters.


    The coffee comes in individual packets that you can mix with hot water (add some ghee or milk for a creamier taste). It tastes like a milder coffee and can provide a less intense energy boost without the jitters. Read more about why one BuzzFeed writer likes this coffee (#3).

    Promising review: "I have no idea if there will legitimately be any real benefits to ingesting these 'super-'mushrooms in my coffee, but what I do know is this: They taste good, and they leave me less jittery than regular coffee. That could be just the result of drinking slightly less coffee in my coffee, but either way, it satisfies my craving for coffee and it tastes good." β€”Kate O'Neill

    Get 10 packs from Amazon for $10.22+ (available in three types).

    8. A reusable sandwich bag great for cutting down on waste, keeping food fresh, and trying out some new sous vide recipes.


    You can also use it for sous vide and throw them in the dishwasher when you're done! Learn more about sous vide precision cooking.

    Promising review: "I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. Can withstand any temperature/microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices." β€”Megan A.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in five sizes and 13 colors).

    9. A makeup brush cleaning mat that clings to your sink and helps you get all that gross gunk out of your brushes. They touch your face, so treat 'em right!


    Promising review: "You can't go wrong with this purchase! I have a lot of brushes and it takes no time at all to clean them! I just use a drop or two of Dawn dish soap then rub them on the mat. Although there are suction cups on the bottom, when I cleaned my beauty blenders I did have to hold the mat, but I wasn't annoyed at all because they were completely cleaned! Long story short, buy this. You won't regret it." β€”Pam C

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in six colors).

    10. A pair of ear-shaped hair ties for anyone who thinks Minnie Mouse has some seriously stealable style.


    Get them from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in nine styles).

    11. A funny coin purse for horse and pizza lovers alike.


    🎡 Wild horses couldn't pull me away...from pizza. 🎡

    Get them from Amazon: the horses for $5.78 and the pizza for $5.75. See more pouches here.

    12. A scalp massager that's super relaxing and also great for getting rid of product build-up that might have set up camp on your noggin.


    Read BuzzFeed's review of this shower brush.

    Promising review: "Holy smokes... one use and I am hooked! I used this with my favorite co-wash and it felt incredible! I occasionally suffer from dandruff/buildup on my scalp, which is why I purchased this tool, and I will be using it every time I shampoo/co-wash." β€”Zauberwald

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in five colors).

    13. An ita tote β€” a bag with a built-in window to keep all your pins and flair safe from falling off during your commute.


    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    14. A candle made just for lefties with just the right amount of snark.


    Can I get one that smells like pen ink smudge? This listing also has other funny candles scents like "Grammar Police," "The Middle Child," "Napping," "It's Only Frickin' Tuesday," and "Office Gossip."

    Get it from Amazon for $20.30 (also available in 27 other scents).

    15. A handy device that can reduce itching and swelling on bad mosquito bites so you can stop scratching and start enjoying the outdoors.


    To use, put the tip of the device to your bug bite and press the button. The tip will heat up; hold in position for 30 seconds to a minute. If it works with your skin, you'll stop itching almost immediately.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical. I get mild allergic reactions to mosquito bites but they create a quarter sized welt that leaves scars due to me scratching the painful itch. But I gave it a try and it worked. Shockingly. I took a picture right after I got bit and then I used the Therapik a couple of times and it made the swelling and itch go down immensely. It's worth it." β€”Nicholas R Cook

    Get it from Amazon for $12.08.

    16. A pair of interlocking Cinderella mugs for you and your fairytale love.


    Get them from Amazon for $39.45. See more mugs by the same brand here.

    17. An Invisibobble scrunchie to keep your hair safe from pulling or breakage. It's the signature stretchy Invisibobble inside a velvety scrunchie material, so it'll feel comfortable on your wrist as well.

    I have the leopard print version and it's everything I could ever hope for. It stays put in my thin hair but doesn't pull or rip out strands when I take my hair down. Best of all, it doesn't leave indents on my wrist so I can have it handy 24/7.

    Get it from Sephora for $8 (available in three colors).

    18. A pair of fan pull charms so you know which is the light and which is the fan without having to test out each cord two or three times.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    19. A pair of classic duck boots with monogrammed tongues, so no one gets any funny ideas about who they belong to.


    I had my duck boots stolen from right outside my apartment door so I am really feeling this innovation!

    Get them from ThePinkMustache1 on Etsy for $57.99 (available in sizes 6–11 and three colors).

    20. A one-pound bag of cheese powder great for sprinkling on popcorn or using to make your own version of "box" mac n' cheese. Honestly, anything you're cooking could use a kick of cheese flavor.

    This would be great to add to your pasta substitute of choice, like Banza.

    Promising review: "GRANDMA POST! My daughter, granddaughter, and I were on FaceTime this morning, just having a nice visit and I was musing about when they get back from Rome. I told her about my latest culinary discovery. They feed my granddaughter healthy, green, nutritious food but still β€” she loves mac n' cheese. I'm ashamed to admit that my kids teethed on frozen hotdogs and survived on Kraft mac n' cheese and applesauce. (Hey! Playing the #singlemom card!) Anyway, I've moved up in the world, both in age and palate, and for all my gramma friends: a tip. Get Anthony's Cheese Powder, buy some really fine Italian Lumacha (snail) pasta β€” and wow those babies. No chemicals, all natural, but it tastes like Kraft while being richer, cheesier and, um, saucier. 1/4 cup powder, 1/2 cup half and half and, of course, butter. And far less expensive per serving. Mac n' cheese that will linger in their memories. Also, you can eat it whenever it is cloudy and chilly outside." β€”Vicki A.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29.

    24. A shot and chaser glass to make celebrating a little less likely to trigger your gag reflex.

    Promising review: "This was a Christmas gag gift for my husband in medical school. He absolutely loved it β€” and gagged the whole time he was looking through it. The whole family is in the medical field so this book got passed around a lot Christmas night. Good laughs and medical debates ensued." β€”charlee harris

    Promising review: "I bought this mug for my best friend, who's one of the biggest Harry Potter fans I've ever seen. I took it out of the packaging and just wrapped the black mug. Her birthday card said to enjoy her coffee in it and then call me. I've never heard her more giddy than when she poured her hot coffee in and the map magically appeared. She sent me a video the next morning so I could see it in action. It works SO WELL! It's such a fun gift and great idea." β€”kel07
