    1. A pack of bold hanging earrings that'll have all eyes on you, literally.

    Amazon

    My friend bought these and they look just as good IRL!

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with these! They are all good quality and the pictures are accurate for sizing. The heaviest pair is the abstract pair, otherwise I forgot I was wearing the others. The colors aren’t as bright on the abstract pair as in the picture." —Maggiel

    Get four pairs from Amazon for $15.99 (also available in four other styles).

    2. A color-changing shower head so you can have a solo rave party in the shower.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We got a new shower head because our old one had such bad pressure I couldn’t even rinse my hair (which is really thick). I ordered this one and the pressure is AMAZINGLY POWERFUL. The lights work great and it was so simple to install." —DeAna Vargas

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My goodness...I have FINALLY found a wine bottle opener that works perfectly!!! This grammy doesn't always have the strength to use other wine bottle openers and this Oster bottle opener is that LAST wine bottle opener I'll ever have!!! Thank you, Oster!!! You know what you're doing...AWESOME! Thank YOU!!!" —QV

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    4. A bottle of truffle seasoning to help with your fancy flavor cravings without having to invest in a truffle sniffing pig.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Yes, I'm a truffle lover to begin with. And, of course, only a truffle is a truffle. But I gotta tell ya this delectable heaven-sent powder is one heck of an addictive and more versatile option. Utterly AMAZING on popcorn, in eggs, added to soups and sauces to layer flavors, veggies, PASTA...the list is endless (I think the only thing I haven't tried was sprinkling it on ice cream...although LOL). It is a bit salty, so I advise testing the waters first. But I just ordered my ninth and tenth bottle of the Truffle Zest." —Greengirl

    Get it from Amazon for $11.80.

    5. A cloud-shaped bath bomb that spits out RAINBOWS!

    ZenBathCandiesLLC

    Get it from ZenBathCandiesLLC on Etsy for $6.99.

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I got my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind, and it's helpful when I parallel in the city." —Mariam Abass

    Get two from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in three shapes).

    7. A privacy window film that's easy to install and fills your home with lots of rainbows when the sun hits it just right. Now you can sing "somewheeeere over the rainbow" as you step over your cat.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Read more about this beloved rainbow window film.

    Promising review: "This window film is just STUNNING! I used it for the bottom half of my windows on my main floor for added privacy, so I don’t always have to keep my curtains closed! I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon." —Stacy M. Ambrose

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in nine sizes).

    8. 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you do nail art or want to perfect your nail polishing skills, this is the product for you. Easy to use, dries sparkly so you know it’s dry, easy peel-off in one piece, and a clean finish. I do a lot of nail art and stamping. Some of the stamping polishes are really hard to get off the cuticle but with this, they come off cleanly. Helps when I do my toes, too, if I get a little messy, the mess comes off with the latex. You can also switch the brush so you don’t waste the bottle when the brush gets clumpy." —Diannah S.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    9. A silicone freezing tray that lets you section your leftover food into perfect frozen portions so you don't have to unfrost your entire vat of black beans every time you want a single serving.

    Amazon

    It comes with a lid to help maintain freshness and keep out odors. It's made of food-safe silicone that's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. It's great for little sides of beans, sauces, soups, and more.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention since sliced bread! How many times have you thrown out soup that you forgot about in your fridge??? Well, say goodbye to spoiled soup! Finally, a way to store measured quantities of broth, but I love to use mine for soup and...wait for it...SMOOTHIES! These cubes are the best for freezing measured quantities of smoothies, simply throw one in the Vitamix, and boom! You have a fresh, already icy cold smoothie for breakfast or a snack! For anyone with limited freezer space which, let's face it, is most of us, this is a real gem. I was a bit worried about how easily the cubes would slide out, but no problems at all! The best part is how easy the cubes store in a gallon sized ziplock bag so you can reuse the cubes. AND they are dishwasher safe??? Souper Cubes, why did you take so long to come into my life!??! I can't wait until the holiday season so I can gift these as stocking stuffers — to anyone I know, you now know your gift." —jane s. catalano

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

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

    amazon.com

    Just twist the stick to get some cleansing solution on the bristles. The formula will keep your gems shiny and new.

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would!!! I'm a little of a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry and the results are nothing less than amazing!!! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I have not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it!! I cannot recommend this product enough!!! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out!!! Home run Amazon!" —Kristina B.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.39.

    11. A holographic nail polish that shimmers so nicely in the sunlight, you might dunk all your other nail polishes right in the trash.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is liquid rainbow for your nails. I've found that with ILNP holographic polishes, as long as I use a good base coat and base color, I only ever need one coat of the holographic polish for good coverage (which is nice since the bottles are $10 a pop). The color lasts at least a week (with a good top coat) minimum, and the colors are truly lovely." —Nnanelle

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    12. A mouth guard with a mold you can make at home and then mail in. High dentist bills = avoided.

    Jessie Gaynor / Via BuzzFeed

    I'm a stressed out person by nature, so I grind my teeth while I sleep (and sometimes while awake). After my dentist told me insurance wouldn't cover a mouth guard, I decided to head to Amazon for an over-the-counter option. This cuts out the middle man and delivers a completely custom mouth guard for less than half the price that the dentist was charging. The service sends you a mold that you bite and mail it in, and they send you back your mouth guard. I've had it for about half a year and it's still working great. You can also read another BuzzFeed review on why it's so great.

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in upper or lower).

    13. 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.

    Hamilton Beach

    Promising review: "I must admit I thought this seemed gimmicky — until I tried it. Super easy to use, easy to wipe up, and makes a delicious piping-hot breakfast sandwich every time. So fun to dream up new variations. Come up with your toppings as it heats, let it cook for 5 minutes, and voila, breakfast is ready! We use it almost every day now. The only con I can think of is that it doesn't fit a full-size bagel. Guess we'll get the mini bagels instead. Crumpets work fine and if you cut the corners off your bread that works great, too." —Karen Bramblet

    Get it from Amazon for $19.30.

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

    amazon.com

    Read a BuzzFeed editor's full review of the John Frieda hot air brush.

    Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near-impossible to get a salon blowout at home. Your arms get tired and trying to manage a brush and blow dryer is a feat in it of itself. I thought I would give this brush a try. Well, it's not just good — it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon — seriously. I love my hairdresser, and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I will probably get two more to give to my daughters as well — that's how much I love it. I almost purchased another brand online that was closer to a hundred dollars, thinking the more you pay the better it is. Glad I didn't because this one is great, and you can't beat the price!" —debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

    15. An intriguing mushroom coffee that's so fun-ghi to drink you'll want everyone try it.

    Amazon

    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. See BuzzFeed's full review of this coffee.

    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 caffeine in my coffee, but either way, it satisfies my craving for coffee and it tastes good." —Kate O'Neill

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in three types).

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

    Amazon

    Use this for cleaning bathtubs, showers, toilets, colorfast fabrics, vertical surfaces, and hard-to-reach spots. It's non-abrasive, and made with non-hydrofluoric acid based formula.

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. With almost no effort, this made my dark orange, iron-water shower stall white again. 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 $10.48 (originally $13.59).

    17. Fleece-lined leggings that are so warm and cozy, you'll never want spring to come.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wow it took serious will power not to buy a bunch more of these leggings! They're so perfect if it weren't for the fact that I hate winter I would say I can't wait to wear these! They are so, so, so, so soft and fluffy inside. It feels like you're wearing the best kind of leg blankets ever." —sierrahasCat

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (also available in 14 other styles) or get some plus-size leggings from Torrid for $38.98 (available in sizes 10–30).

    18. A three-in-one lens kit for your phone so effective, it may finally kickstart your dream of becoming a photographer. You know, the dream you've had since you started reading this?

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    The set comes with a wide angle lens, a fisheye lens, and a macro lens.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    19. A pair of ceiling fan charms so you know exactly what's going to happen on the first pull. So simple, so genius.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the definition of 'product you didn't know you needed because you didn't know it existed.' I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh no...now the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek...now you're in the dark.) They're much better quality than I expected. They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor." —LHD

    Get a pair from Amazon for $6.59.

    20. A pair of waterproof shoe covers to keep on hand in case of unexpected rain. We all know that umbrella is not going to protect your new suede heels from a torrential downpour.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are FANTASTIC!! I’m in Oslo, Norway. I knew there was going to be some rain on this trip and I didn’t want to bring my heavy rain boots, so I ordered these! Rain today, so I slipped these on my walking shoes. Let’s be honest; they are not going to win any fashion prizes, but which would you want, dry feet or wet feet?" —Sarabeth721

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three sizes and 12 colors).

    21. A cat decal offering up a small little ":3" for anyone who needs it.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.66 or Urban Outfitters for $12.95.

    24. 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 $19.97.

    25. A darling Groot planter/organizer sure to be your best friend in the whole galaxy.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a lid if you want to use it for small stuff like paperclips but most reviewers use it as a pencil cup or planter.

    Promising review: "Cutest Groot ever! I use it as a pencil holder at work. It also comes with a cap so you can use it also for storage for small stuff (not necessary as a plant pot or pencil holder). Great gift for any age for home or office!" —Sophia

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    26. A variety pack of Banza, aka chickpea pasta that's such an effective pasta alternative that you may never return to the original.

    amazon.com

    See BuzzFeed's glowing review for this delicious pasta alternative.

    Promising review: "My wife and I had stopped eating pasta for the most part in our at home diet in an attempt to curb overall carb consumption. I missed pasta and I longed for its sweet and usually sauce covered embrace. I first came across Banza in the aisles at Sprouts and figured I'd give it a try. I'm now taking time out of my day to write a review to support this new product. It's a great substitute for pasta, especially for those looking to keep a higher protein diet and to reduce carbohydrate intake. It prepares the same and tastes great. Prepare it however you love your pasta, you won't be disappointed." —Matt Dayton
