    The set comes with a 2-inch flat brush, a 4-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.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite, it cleaned it as good as new. Got all those dog hairs between the keys! No smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. No sign I even used it except a clean keyboard. Kind of fun to play with. LOL." —Billy

    10. 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: foaming bottle after: clean bottle

    Just fill your dirty mug with water, add a tablet, let it 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 Hydro Flask 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 Hydro Flask 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 Hydro Flask 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 $8.

    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.

    13. Cruelty-free lengthening mascara that's lightweight, won't transfer, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day — oh, and makes your eyelashes look like tall, beautiful skyscrapers.,

    Promising review: "Love this mascara! I’ve used the 'best of the best' designer, super-hyped, ultra-popular mascara available and NOTHING compares to this stuff! I don’t even bother using a lash curler anymore! I buy two at a time so I always have a spare (yes, it’s that good!!). I highly recommend this particular goes on effortlessly, it lasts pretty much all day, and the price — I feel like I’m almost stealing it! I’d give it 10 stars if I could!!!" —chulaboola

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    before: my hair looking brittle and hay-like after: my hair looking silkier and more healthy
    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My hair hasn't been this soft since I was a child. The most amazing part is that while it adds luster and softness, my hair isn't greasy at all. I have straight hair that has become damaged/frizzy from coloring and highlighting. I LOVE this conditioner." —Nancy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    16. A desk organizer so you can keep all your knickknacks on proper display.

    light wood desk organizer with three shelves

    Promising review: "Very happy with this shelf. It is simple, clean, not too deep, and just right for the small section of desk I wanted to put it on. All parts were in the box (even got an extra screw) and it was very easy to assemble. I did not have any issues with stripped or missing screw holes and the shelf feels very sturdy." —Numbr1ners

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in four colors).

    17. A giant 1-pound bag of marshmallows for anyone who picks the boring cereal out of Lucky Charms. I don't blame you if you end up taking romantic selfies with the bag.

    Promising review: "Buying these charms was one of the best decisions of my life. The bag is twice the size of my head. The marshmallows are aesthetically pleasing and delicious. It's everything I ever wanted in a snack." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    18. A Serta desk chair with memory foam padding and coils, meaning it's basically a mattress for your desk.

    BuzzFeed / Christine Forbes

    Promising review: "This Serta office chair will make your back cry literal tears of joy. Working from home is much less painful when you're perched on memory foam. It has small arms so the chair pairs perfectly with shorter desks. I put it together in less than 15 minutes — no tools required. The chair's twill fabric added some much needed texture to my room!" —Christine Forbes, BuzzFeed staff

    Get it from Amazon for $229.99 (available in ten colors).

    19. A roll of peel-and-stick fake marble to jazz up all your dull surfaces.,

    Promising review: "Used a little more than one roll for a quick makeover for an ugly fireplace in a rental apartment. It was easy to cover the tiles with the film, and I could stretch the film out about 1 mm if I had cut the strip too short. It makes a huge difference for minimal effort/price. I don't think anyone would be squinting down at the floor to notice the slightly pixelated pattern." —zhen

    Get a roll from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in nine configurations).

    20. A Baker's Edge brownie pan ensuring that every slice is an edge slice. Think of the fights that can now be avoided.

    A customer review photo of the Baker's Edge brownie pan filled with brownies

    Promising review: "Because this pan is intended for the 'brownie edge lover,' if you aren't one, this is not the pan for you. Now if you're still reading then you must have heard the rumors about this pan. Not being one that makes brownies more than once a month I just couldn't convince myself to spend over $30 on a pan. Now that I have it I will never go back to a standard pan for brownies. It gives every brownie at least two chewy edges, it's totally nonstick, and there is no oiling or flouring necessary. Cleanup is easy. A little hot water, soap, rinse, dry, and voilà!" —Cricket

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95.

    21. A pair of seasonal candles to make winter seem a little less dreary.

    candles shaped like tree and polar bear

    Get them from UCandleItStudio on Etsy for $15.29 (available in two colors).

    22. A faux-leather floor pouf you can fill with stuffed animals, old clothing, raggedy towels, or anything else you'd otherwise get rid out. A classic rags-to-riches (aka, cute home decor) story!

    round floor pouf

    Promising review: "Great buy! Material looks better in person. Color is more of a matte finish than it appears in photos, which I prefer. Love that I can stuff it with winter clothing to clear up space in the closet and dresser." —Ron

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in six colors).

    23. A humidifier that looks like a little dog ready to blast off into space in their reindeer rocket ship. Why isn't this a movie yet?,

    It can last up to 10 hours and has seven LED colors.

    Promising review: "I can honestly say I was shocked to find this little gem, especially for the price. I have used it daily since it arrived at my doorstep. I’ve been taking it back and forth from home to work, but I will Instead buy a second one, and most likely a couple more as gifts." —Helen Quigley

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

    24. A pack of bendy foam curling rods for a traditional way to get awesome curls without the pain of hard plastic rollers.


    Promising review: "I love it: The longer you leave them on, the tighter the curl. I have very straight hair and these have curled my hair without using a heating tool. I highly recommend it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 42 from Amazon for $9.99.

    25. A carbonated clay face mask to turn your face into a hilarious foamy delight. Best of all? It has actual benefits like cleaning out pores and fighting blackheads.,

    Promising review: "This was purchased strictly for novelty at first, but I was pleasantly surprised that it made my skin feel softer when I took it off. I forced my husband to do it first, and it looks like it helped clean out his pores on his nose, so that’s another win for this mask! I’ve already recommended it to friends!" —Miranda

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    26. The Pink Stuff, an all-purpose paste that you can use to clean basically anything. Scrubbing will be a thing of the past. And the future? Sparkly-clean items as far as the eye can see.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh — this stuff is a life changer! Used it to get my fiberglass shower totally clean. Nothing else would get it done and this stuff brought my shower back to near new in one use. We’ve since cleaned a weird chalky film off our garage door, removed wall markings, and cleaned my storm door. We’ll never be without a jar (or three) of this stuff. Worth every penny." —Nancy F.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    27. A sheet of stickers with little check box droplets to help keep track of your water intake. Place them in your agenda as a cute reminder to stay hydrated.

    Get a pack of eight from A Happy Blue Tree on Etsy for $3.95.

    28. A paw-shaped chair cushion, because who doesn't want to be lovingly cradled in a kitten's paw?

    paw shaped pillows

    Promising review: "I freaking LOVE this paw cushion! This paw cushion absolutely saves my butt. It's not super thick or as filled as you might hope. But I read reviews and was prepared for that. A little extra padding would be great but even without it this cushion is soft and comfy! It's still worth every dime. It's perfect if you have one of those hanging indoor/outdoor rope chairs, too! This cushion is soft and cute and comfortable. Buy yourself this thing. You deserve it." —mandarabbit

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    29. A miniature greenhouse kit so you can finally achieve your dreams of opening a plant store (for ants).


    The kit comes with LED lights, pigment, glue, tweezers, various miniature tools, and everything they need to construct the greenhouse.

    Promising review: "I absolutely loved assembling this kit! Instructions and materials supplied are good. I will buy another one as I enjoyed assembling it so much I was kind of sad when I was done. It is a wonderful finished product. I really enjoyed changing up with you things and making it my own." —Marcia Britain

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three styles).

    30. A trio of window planters you can hang right above the window. Bam! Lots of light for the plants and easy decor for you.

    three white planters held up by a black bar

    Promising review: "This assembled in a jiffy and looks great in my window. So glad I chose it for the future home of my herb garden. The pots are a good size, the cord looks sturdy, and is generously sized (you can just wrap around the bar a few times to shorten). Note that there are no holes in the pots, if you're looking for drainage. But of course, that's why baby Jesus made power tools." —Mizz Dallas

    Get it from Amazon for $33.86 (available in five colors).

    31. A pair of incredibly soft hybrid leggings and joggers for anyone looking for both supreme comfort and style.

    Reviewer in a pair of dark green joggers with an elastic drawstring high waist

    Promising review: "Best sweatpants ever. I can't explain how genuinely happy I am that these pants fit. I have trouble finding pants that fit AND are comfortable AND look good and i just found all three. These pants are very comfortable and soft but not see through even if you stretch it. The material seems thin enough to let you breathe but thick and durable enough to last one to three-plus years. (Hard to tell based on one wear, will update as time goes by.) Ordered a 3X and it fits perfectly. I also usually hate wide waistbands especially on my belly but this one is very soft and just mostly feels like extra layers of fabric, but is still pretty secure on your waist. Will definitely buy multiple pairs. :)" —Stacey

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in women's sizes S–3X and dozens of colors).

    32. An ingenious sandwich cutter and sealer so you can make your own Smucker's Uncrustables copycats at home. FINALLY we can all be reunited with the sadly discontinued grilled cheese variety.

    Reviewer's photo showing homemade uncrustables

    Promising review: "These have been a GAME CHANGER in this house!! My son has always begged me for Uncrustables but my wallet didn’t agree with them. I LOVE being able to make them at home and customize them to exactly what they would like them filled with! I make two weeks' worth of sandwiches at a time and store them in sandwich bags in the freezer so in the morning during the school year we can just grab and go! Love them!" —Katherine Smaczniak

    Get it from Amazon for $19.96.

    33. An Iron Flask insulated thermos mug that works just as well as competitors to keep liquids hot or cold, but at a fraction of the price.

    metal bottle with pink and blue gradient

    Promising review: "When searching for a water bottle, I initially was tempted to get a Hydro Flask, but found this Iron Flask was cheaper. What sold the Iron Flask for me was that while it does keep water immensely cold over long periods of time, like the Hydro Flask, the Iron Flask comes with two additional lids and an extra straw. I like to use the water bottle wherever I go, and when filled with light ice, it has kept the water ice cold for up to six-plus hours. I have run my bottle into things by accident, and it has held up well. I've also knocked it over and left it on its side while driving, and there has been no leakage. Overall, if you're looking for an alternative to the Hydro Flask without breaking the bank, the Iron Flask is more affordable and better from what I've experienced." —Marissa

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95+ (available in four sizes and 13 colors). 

    34. A sleek-as-heck USB alarm clock — seemingly every nightstand has been sporting it lately. And with good reason! It has two USB ports for easy charging.

    A reviewer's alarm clock with two devices plugged in

    Promising review: "Love love love this clock...sleek and definitely a statement piece. Alarm is subtle; it will definitely wake you up, however it will not scare the bejesus out of you. Love the extra ports on the side to charge other things with it." —Meika B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.80 (available in four colors).

    35. A children's camera that beats taking pics on your phone: It's lightweight, adorable, has 15 photo frames, and boasts filters that put Instagram to shame. Amazon didn't have good review pictures so I beg you to watch the TikTok.

    small handheld pink camera

    It's charged with a USB port and comes with a memory card. 

    Promising review: "Love it! Gonna document my summer on it LOL! Got it because of a TikTok — video quality and pic quality looks OK but sound is awful, haha. Still cute and fun. I'm gonna order one for my little sister too!" —SG🦋

    Get it from Amazon for $20.90+ (available in three colors)

    36. A creamy deep conditioner for anyone with 3a–4c hair. Thanks to its super-fruit oil formula, it provides a lightweight hold that leaves curls and coils feeling soft and moisturized.

    Bread Beauty Supply is a Black woman–owned business that was founded by Maeva Heim in 2020.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! My hair is very dry and frizzy but this product made my hair so much more manageable and soft. I will definitely be getting more once I’m out!" —Nivedhitha

    Get it from Sephora or Bread Beauty Supply for $28.

    37. A Shark cordless vacuum cleaner that has so many cool features, you might actually enjoy cleaning. I'm talking a flexible wand, HEPA filtration, anti-allergy seal, removable hand vac, and 60 minutes of battery life. It even has a trigger that gives you an extra boost when cleaning a stubborn area.


    I am...obsessed with this vacuum. It's super light and turns on a dime, making it waaay easier to use than a traditional, cumbersome vacuum. The neck of the vacuum can be folded, so you can get under the couch or coffee table without even having to bend down. There is a soft roller and PowerFins to help grab all the debris, and — with what I can only assume is witchcraft — avoid the dreaded hair wraps. Living with a long-haired dog means I've always struggled with his fur wrapping around the roller, but no more! My only complaint is the battery doesn't last super long, but I live in an apartment so I'm never vacuuming for long anyway.

    Get it from Amazon for $329.99.

    38. Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint that has a lightweight formula boasting a rich pigment in just one swipe. The color dries so well, it'll feel like your lips are just naturally that vibrant!

    reviewer wearing the coral link ink and holding the product

    Promising review: "Very pretty color. Lasts a long time, doesn't smudge when dry, and when I think I need to reapply, I can just put a new coat over it and looks good as new. Love it!" —Shawn

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90 (available in seven shades).

    39. Magical Flames — a cool invention that turns your boring old fire into a rainbow fire. Camping has never felt so rave-like.

    fire in many different colors

    Promising review: Mystical Fire Colorant is amazing. For a really fun experience, get some of these for your next camping trip. As if a campfire needs improvement... but this stuff is really neat. I'd say the adults love it even more than the kids. We only used one packet and the colors were so good — seems like they lasted at least 20 minutes. There was even color left in the ashes the next day. We will never go camping again without several packs of Mystical Fire on hand." —TeNe

    Get it from Amazon for $7.72+ (available in packs of 6–50).

    40. A pair of fishnet socks with bow backs that are a-bow-t to make every outfit way more edgy and chic.
