    1. A jalapeno corer so you can get rid of unwanted seeds in a flash and minimize the risk of you slicing your hand open.

    2. A journal happy to store all your increasingly complicated passwords. At least 12 characters, including a symbol, number, capital letter, ancient rune, and the fleeting details of a half-remembered dream? COME ON!

    3. A batter dispenser for people who struggle to get evenly sized cupcakes or pancakes.

    4. A cellphone holder that clips to your car's air vent and keeps your makeshift GPS at eye-level. It's so easy and helpful, you'll be kicking yourself for not getting it sooner.

    5. A veggie chopper to make quick work of your prep work.

    6. A pair of KneeBlades that will help you tackle low-to-the-ground tasks with the graceful ease and style of a rollerblader.

    7. A peel-off cuticle guard so you can get fancy with your sponge manicure — or more likely, so you can get a half-decent manicure that's not mostly on your fingers.

    8. An egg cooker that can make delicious egg dishes in any style you want. Stop settling for overcooked hardboiled eggs with gross grey yolks. You deserve better.

    9. A John Frieda hot hair brush for when you wanna look like you have an in-home stylist at your beck and call.

    10. A reliable dust buster that can easily and efficiently suck up whatever mess is threatening to ruin your perfectly clean home.

    13. A tube of primer to ensure your amazing makeup masterpiece stays put all day long.

    14. A breakfast sandwich maker that cooks every part of the sandwich at once and then neatly stacks them together so you can skip the line at your local deli.

    15. A blind spot mirror so switching lanes doesn't have to be a heart-stopping moment of terror.

    16. An electric bottle opener that works so well, you'll realize you were living in the dark ages with that corkscrew all these years.

    17. ~Handy~ nail clippers sporting a rotating swivel head and an extra-long handle, giving you easier access to hard-to-reach nails.

    18. A folding board that lets you harness the tools of the retail professionals and get perfect folds every time.

    19. An ice tray with a lid so you can walk at a normal pace from the sink to the freezer and just throw that thing in there, no risk of spills.

    20. A jewelry cleaning pen you can count on to add new shine to your gems, no costly trip to the jeweler needed.

    21. Detangling brushes that'll make quick work out of even the knottiest hair. Brushing your or your kid's hair no longer has to end in tears.

    22. An under-counter jar opener so you can open stubborn containers with just one hand (the other hand is free to text friends about all the pickles you're about to eat).

    23. An avocado tool that looks silly, but I promise you will save you a trip to the ER when your knife slips during the de-pitting stage. Get that sweet avocado meat out of its skin while keeping your blood in your skin.

    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.

    25. A spoon that clips on to the side of your coffee ground jar, so your scoop is never out of reach.

    26. 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.

    27. A handy device that keeps track of whether or not the dog has been fed. Those hungry puppy dog eyes aren't fooling anyone now, Fido!

    28. A rust removing gel spray – you may be tempted to say "abra cadabra" as you use it. It's that magical!

    29. A pet hair remover that'll pull all the fur off your belongings. It turns out that white fur coat you own is actually a black denim jacket???
