    1. A cult-favorite down jacket that thousands of people swear by for staying super warm and looking like a trendy marshmallow.

    Promising review: "2,000+ reviews are not wrong — this is a great jacket! The hood lining is very warm and cozy, the sleeve cuffs keep your lower arms warm, and the side zippers allow the jacket to be tightened or loosened as needed. I doubt I'll say anything that hasn't already been said but I for one am very pleased with this jacket! Great price, fast shipping, good quality, and warm! Thanks, Orolay team, for a great product!" —_

    2. A bottle of squalane oil to make your skin so luxuriously soft and bouncy, you'll slam dunk all your other creams in the trash.

    I recommend this to everyoneeee, including my dermatologist. It's a multi-faceted product that can be used on your face, body, skin, and hair. It locks in moisture and leaves my face feeling bright and bouncy.

    Get it from Sephora for $32 or something similar from Amazon for $10.80.

    3. A set of Target Threshold sheets so affordable and comfortable, I lay awake at night worrying about all the people who don't own a set.


    Here is why you need these sheets: 1. They have a 400 thread count 2. They're cheap 3. They come in cute patterns 4. The fitted sheet has tags telling you which way is up/down or a side.

    Get them from Target for $29.99+ (available in sizes Twin–King and 12 colors or 25 patterns).

    4. 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???,

    Promising review: "Holy cow this is magic. I have a 230 pound Mastiff. I have purchased any and everything claiming to get dog hair off car carpet. I have used at least three different vacuums and attachments. Lately I have been using a microfiber towel because it had some grip. Then this piece of magic arrived. It gets every single hair no matter how embedded. There were hairs I had a hard time removing with my fingers. The Fur-Zoff pulled them right out. This has cut my hair removal time in half! Thank you for this savior of a tool." —David R.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    5. An Instant Pot wrap to transform your favorite kitchen gadget into your favorite galaxy-saving droid.


    And get an Instant Pot here.

    Get it from InstantWraps on Etsy for $11+ (available in fits for 17 devices).

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

    Promising review: "I couldn’t believe that this kit could solve my ingrown toenail issue; it’s been a lingering issue for 14 years, on and off, more so the last few years. I read the reviews and thought its worth a try for the money. It’s about the same price as a co-pay to the doctor anyway. I couldn’t be happier! This is an amazing kit. I admit it took a few tries to get them to stick, two of the braces have broken, now that it’s fairly flat, almost a normal curve to it, it seems to stay affixed much more reliably. To the naysayer, I tell you that I didn’t believe it either, my toenail on my right foot looked like an inverted taco shell. I could tell after a week it was improving and finally it looks good again. The pain of nail removal, time off work, wearing a goofy shoe for two or three weeks and the frustration of it growing back in the same way again make this curve correct kit worth every penny. If you’re in pain and reading this review then you are right where I was a month ago. Order it, get over the 50 bucks and get your ability to walk and run pain-free back. I paid full price for this kit and I am convinced it’s the best 50 bucks I’ve spent in years. Thanks Curve Correct!" —Frank Menz

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    7. A heated dog bed so you can properly spoil your beloved pet this winter.

    Promising review: "These beds were a hit right out of the box! I have two beagles and they love snuggling at night. The problem is that they were taking over my bed and I found my space shrinking more and more every night. I tried training my dogs to sleep on their own beds, but they refused. They destroyed so many beds I can't even count them. Then I found these electric beds and voila! My dogs loved them immediately. Just look at the picture! Those are two happy beagles." —Juliana

    Get it from Amazon for $51.20+ (available in two sizes).

    8. A pack of pantry moth traps to finally rid your home of those tiny, annoying bug aviators.

    You can get clothing moth traps here.

    Promising review: "When I say these work fast, I mean it. I got these in hopes of killing my pantry moth problem once and for all. As soon as I set these traps out a SWARM of moths came out from who knows where. I felt like I was in The Birds — it was that intense. After my momentary panic I was shocked to find that the moths went straight to the traps and got themselves stuck, and within a few hours the kitchen was eerily free of moths. Don’t let the price scare you, this stuff works and works well. The only complaint I have is that my cat got herself stuck on one in a desperate attempt to kill some moths herself. Though that is more of a complaint with the stupidity of my cat and not the product. With a little complaining and vegetable oil she came free with only a little fur missing." —Taylor

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $15.97.

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

    Promising review: "I have a 2.5 carat wedding ring and have a hard time really finding anything that gets that 'first day' sparkle back. With the Dazzle Stick, it shines again. Thank you so much!" —C.Skinner

    Get it from Amazon for $5.24.

    10. An air purifying bag to help finally rid your home or car or wherever of that gross smell. There, now you can have guests again; you're welcome.

    Promising review: "This product is a MIRACLE! Mistakenly left a package of chicken breasts from the supermarket in my brand new Audi. Subsequently went on vacation for ten days. The chicken was left rotting in the car in the garage for twelve days! I can't begin to describe how wretched the smell was on our return. We aired out the car for days — still stunk to high hell! I tried Febreeze and other so-called aerosol odor eliminators, which would temporarily help, but the acrid smell would come right back. I honestly thought my new car might be ruined. Used two bags of Moso (one small, one large). This activated charcoal really works. After one week, the smell was significantly dissipated. Now at the end of two weeks, it is virtually gone. Wow! Thank you Moso for saving my car from dead chicken hell!" —JAC ESQ

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three colors).

    11. A pair of classy rainboots so you can still wear cute shoes even when it's pouring.


    Click through to see the camo, yellow, and GLITTER options!

    Promising review: "I've been wanting some Chelsea rain boots for a long time now, and these are PERFECT for the price. $25 for nice rainboots is for sure a steal, and the rubber on these is super pliable and comfortable for day-long wear. I will say the sizing isn't perfect; I fall between an 8-9 depending on the brand, but generally find my feet to be closer to a 9. Since there aren't half sizes, I went with the 9 here, and it is definitely a little too large. If you're a borderline size like me, you may want to go on the smaller side instead." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–12 and 10 colors).

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

    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

    13. A dog shampoo and conditioner to give your pet the silky fur that'll be the envy of all the pups at the dog park.

    Promising review: "This is a great shampoo and conditioner. I have a shichon puppy that needs to be washed every 3-4 weeks. I thought I would need to apply a leave-in conditioner since he is half shih tzu, but I do not. The product gets him super clean without drying out his fur. It makes his fur soft and fluffy! The directions says to rinse and repeat, but I found two applications drys out his skin and makes his fur look dull. So I only do one application. I will definitely buy again and again. The pump nozzle is great to use one handed. The shampoo leaves him smelling good for at least a week or more." —C M

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

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

    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.

    15. A back massaging stick so you can hit all those hard-to-reach places and kiss stiffness goodbye.

    Promising review: "This tool has changed my life!!! There is not a pressure point on my body that is not tender. I no longer have to wait for somebody to massage me to get relief!! I literally use it every day. The pain that I had before was so debilitating. There were days when I couldn't function because I was in so much pain from muscle tightness. I am having tremendous relief now. Words cannot express how grateful I am to the person who designed and came up with this concept. This tool has enabled me to take the first steps in taking back my life! I leave it sitting next to my bed and the first thing I do when I wake up is hit the pressure points on my shoulders and neck before I even get out of bed!! No more waking up stiff and staying stiff!!!!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the inventor of this life changing tool!!!" —alisa g.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in three colors).

    16. CND SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Care to repair peeling and painful nails, so you can find relief after doing the unspeakable and peeling off a gel manicure.

    Promising review: "So, I have been using this product for about a month. I apply it every night before I fall asleep so the oil has a chance to really get absorbed. I have not used with any other products. Similar to another reviewer, my nails chip, like all the time. Especially, index and middle fingers on both hands. For years, I have tried strengthening polishes, salves, and lotions but nothing worked, until now. I am happy to say that this really stopped the chipping. Only one of my nails has any indication that chipping was an issue. Thank you so much!" —Angela Wills

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    17. A toilet sticker reminding guests to put down the seat, keeping other guests from falling in during late night bathroom breaks.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.45.

    18. A tea organizer for tea fanatics who have more than a couple half empty tea boxes taking up precious real estate in their cabinets.


    Promising review: "I am really enjoying this tea organizer. I keep many different varieties of tea and this has been the easiest way to keep them sorted. One compartment will hold most, if not all, of one small box of tea. It feels so happy to be able to easily access and choose what tea I am in the mood for that day. Thank you." —skymom

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    19. 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.


    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 $16.99.

    20. A dishwasher magnet so you can know at a glance whether the dishes are clean or dirty. Arguments = avoided. Accidentally eating off a dirty plate = never again.


    Just rotate it to switch the "status."

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac

    Get it from Amazon for $4.60.

    21. A lil' raincoat for your bag, because an umbrella can only do so much and your favorite purse is NOT waterproof.


    This was a product on Shark Tank! They didn't get the deal, but it's still a great investment if you don't want a soggy purse.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    22. A teeny-tiny trashcan that fits in your car's cup holder so you have no excuse for all the gum wrappers and tissues littering the passenger seat.


    Promising review: "It’s ridiculous how much I love these! The push part is on a spring so it stays closed when you aren’t pushing it, and of course it perfectly fits in the cup holder of our vehicles. Pro tip: a quart sized Ziploc is the perfect size to add as a liner and fold over the top to keep the inside clean!" —Chaos Coordinator

    Get it from Amazon for $6.58.

    23. A suction tool to help relieve the itchy agony of bug bites by sucking out insect venom, saliva, and other irritants under your skin. Finally, you can go outside after dark again!

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    Make sure you read all the directions before using so you don't accidentally give yourself a hickey! I've used this and it totally works. It won't completely get rid of 100% of your bug bites, but it makes a noticeable difference. I haven't scratched once since this amazing device came into my life.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get two from Amazon for $18.95.

    24. A bottle of hair wash powder — just add water to activate it and get it nice and sudsy.

    Owa Haircare

    Finally, a full-size bottle of shampoo you can throw in your carry-on. This stuff lathers like crazy and smells amazing. So far, my hair feels bouncier, softer, and healthier so I definitely recommend!

    Get it from Owa Haircare for $29.

    25. A cuff-style bracelet with a groove to keep your hair-tie in. Now you can always have one handy without it cutting of your circulation.


    Promising review: "Looks great, does what I hoped (keep from cutting off circulation — I have clotting issues) while still looking fashionable. I have my discreet gold exercise tracker and matched my hair tie to it; together they just look like some bangles. The other ones sold online that are cheaper are painted plastic — after a friend's kid got sick from cheap jewelry, I decided that everything that's in contact with my skin 24/7 has to be safe." —1.5 Trick Pony

    Get it from Amazon for $35 (available in three finishes).

    26. A pair of massage slippers that are meant to be worn for 15 minutes at a time to help with various foot pain problems.


    Promising review: "I had done a lot of research on these before I purchased them. When I received them I put them on for 15 minutes and wore them around the house while I did my household chores. I did wear socks with them. The last five minutes were a bit painful but I kept them on. The first night I slept better than I have slept in a really long time. I woke up with no knee pain or sciatica and back pain. I could actually get up from a sitting position without struggling. I am 71 years old and my knees and back have been giving me a fit for a really long time. My husband was so impressed that he asked me to order him a pair. I truly believe in the health benefits that these offer and all without drugs and/or surgery. I will continue to wear them the recommended 15 minutes per day. I can't say enough positive things about these slippers, and have already recommended them to my family and friends." —ELIZABETH J.

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 4F–12M and four styles).

    27. A suction cup cat hammock for lounging by the window and getting some sun — is there room up there for me, too?

    Read BuzzFeed's write-up on this cat hammock.

    Promising review: "We've had this for a week and it's our cat's favorite place to hang out. When we get home from work, we usually find them lounging on top of it. Make sure the surface is very clean before you apply the suction cups so it adheres properly. When we were trying to decide where to hang the seat, we noticed that the suction cups don't stick completely if there is any dust." —joe

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    28. A bottle of Barkeeper's Friend soft cleanser — an intense solution that can take down stains that ordinary soap can't handle.,

    It works on everything from cooked-on burn stains on your stainless steel pots and pans, to buildup around gas stove burners, to soap scum and other mystery dirt in bathtubs.

    Promising review: "Sink was near unclean-able. Ajax, bleach etc. would not take out the stains. We considered replacing the sink but wanted to Google how to repair sinks and stumbled on a YouTube review for this product. The change is unbelievable." —Eze

    Get two bottles on Amazon for $9.29.
