    Promising review: "I bought this set as a birthday gift for my friend. He recently purchased an Instant Pot and has been cooking more and more with it, so I thought this would be a great gift idea! He loves this set and has already made sous vide egg bites and posted it on social media and everyone has been commenting. He has a 6-quart pot and he said this fit perfectly. He wants to make a cheesecake next in his Instant Pot using the cake pan. He was extremely thankful and said that this comes with a lot of accessories. I think this is great value for the price considering all of the useful tools that you get!" —Merriam W.

    hands dip tea bag like devices into wine

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. 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).

    5. An air mattress you can place in the backseat to instantly turn your sedan into a bedroom.

    inflatable mattress in backseat

    It comes with one air mattress, two inflatable pillows, one inflator/deflator pump, one repair kit, and one storage bag.

    Promising Review: "I have to say that this is amazing! This bed can be used in a truck or the back of a car, which is so practical. The machine it comes with helps it inflate quickly. It can also be used anytime you're camping, not just in a car. It shocked me how spacious the back seat was with this air mattress. And the cushion is very comfortable. It's easily portable because it's not heavy at all. Such good quality!" —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in four colors).

    6. A KitchenAid ice cream making attachment ready to whip up delicious homemade treats. Maybe the world isn't ready for Flamin' Hot Cheetos ice cream, but you certainly are.,

    Promising review: "This is such an amazing attachment for the KitchenAid mixer! I have made so many batches of ice cream this year (coffee, chocolate, black cherry chocolate chip, plum, banana cream, etc.). Put it in the freezer about 24 hours before you want to use it, take it out, and make your ice cream, leave it on the counter to thaw for 12-24 hours, then wash it. I've had zero problems with mine, and the ice cream recipes that come with it are fabulous. :)" —sgamje50

    Get it from Amazon for $99.87.

    7. A 13-pocket purse organizer to make it way easier to finds things in your otherwise pocketless tote.


    Promising review: "I travel a lot and like to use totes rather than a handbag. The challenge is keeping that open space organized — everything falls to the bottom of the tote! This organizer is perfect. A firm felt fabric holds my phone, papers, cosmetics, pen, notebook, etc., without any issues retrieving any of them. It also has a clip-on strap that attaches to my keys, and it's long enough to reach from inside my tote to unlock the door! So clever and very handy. The center section of the organizer is a removable zippered pouch that could be used as a smaller organizer in another bag or can be removed if I have a larger item to carry in the center of the bag. The organizer also works great for moving from tote to tote. It's the right size and height. All in all, I'm very happy with the purchase!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.88+ (available in three sizes and 10 colors).

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

    small round mirror on side mirror

    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 park in the city." —Mariam Abass

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97+ (available in three shapes).

    9. A bottle of Mike's Hot honey that seriously makes everything taste better. Pizza, wings, veggies, dumplings, salad, cocktails, ice cream, everything!

    honey drizzled on pizza

    Tip: If you love really spicy food, try their new Extra Hot version!

    Promising review: "I was a skeptic, but now I AM a believer. This mixed up honey is absolutely fabulous. I ordered three bottles more after my initial order. Why? Because it is really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. Soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. Gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth. I have told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree — this is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had. Don’t hesitate to buy it. It is absolutely wonderful stuff. I most HIGHLY recommended!" —Jeff R. Clow

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    10. A comfy, memory foam chair cushion to turn your lumpy desk chair or uncomfortable car seat into a cushy throne.,

    Promising review: "Works great, helps to relieve some pressure from sitting. This is a great memory foam cushion for office chairs or your couch. You really can feel the difference. This is thick, and feels like it will last for a really long time. I've been using mine for a couple of weeks and already feel a little better. The cover is removable for washing, and the stitching is done really well. I recommend this to anyone who has to sit for more than a few hours." —phillygirl

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    11. Bra and pant extenders so you can get some extra mileage with clothes that would otherwise be too tight., Amazon

    Promising review (for waistband extender): "I'm in the middle of my first trimester and these have been awesome! I'm still too small for maternity pants, but am too bloated to wear my current pants as-is. This pack is great because it includes both kinds of closures (buttons and metal clasp) and it comes in a variety of colors. I highly recommend! I'm fairly sure I will be using these until I am in all maternity clothes and perhaps after (pair it with a bellyband), and also after baby is born and I go back to work!" —JMCrwy

    Get three bra extenders for $5.99 or 13 waistband extenders for $18.95, both from Amazon.

    12. A pack of Miracle-Gro water storing crystals with the power to transform your soil into super soil. It prevents both under- *and* over-watering, which I believe are the top two killers of houseplants.


    Promising review: "I have deck rail flower boxes and they get full sun most of the day. I filled in the drain holes to hold more water and added these to the soil. Both made a huge difference in the quality of life for the plants. They were and still are gorgeous even if I couldn't water every day. I do have to admit I used more per planter than the recommended amount." —Pattijwr

    Get it from Amazon for $8.72.

    13. A bottle of truffle seasoning to make meals taste extra fancy without having to invest in a truffle-sniffing pig.

    bottle of truffle zest next to burger

    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.

    14. A set of purrfectly adorable chair socks that ironically prevent scratches instead of creating them.


    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE these!!! Not only are they cute and adorable, but also very functional. I bought these because of my frustration with other products I've tried that left marks on my hardwood floors. My chair legs are thick and I was worried they might not fit, but they stretched nicely and did not slip or slide off. I have tried several other options from rubber tips to felt pads and all of them fall or slide off after a while. We use our chairs every day, multiple times a day and they have not worn out. They very obviously prevent scratches. They look like the chairs have gotten socks to keep their legs warm with these cat paws. Excellent design and manufacture with a nice dose of whimsy. I will definitely buy more of these just to have as backup." —Zhangsu

    Get a variety set of 20 from Amazon for $12.59+ (available in six varieties).

    15. A set of gel-infused can coolers for slow drinkers who want their drink just as frosty as when they opened it four hours ago.


    Just keep them in the freezer until you're ready to use them!

    Promising review: "I couldn’t believe it until I tried it. It actually does make things colder than when they start. I usually put in a can of pop out of the fridge and let it sit for 15 minutes and it is really, really cold! This keeps it cold forever. Can’t imagine how it could work any better!" —Todd Thornock

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $39.95.

    16. An easy-to-use jewelry cleaning brush able to quickly clean up stones and make them shine as bright as when you got them.

    A reviewer's solitaire ring: on the left before cleaning looking cloudy, on the right clean with defined facets and sparkle

    It's filled with a cleansing and polishing solution to rid stones of clouding dirt and oil and ensure every facet shines. Just twist the bottom of the pen to dispense the fluid and brush on!

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this..*oh my goodness*! After one use of the Diamond Dazzle ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster: for its beauty, for what it represents...and now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity. It is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.79.

    17. A set of toaster-friendly bags that'll basically promote your toaster to Chief Grilled Cheese Officer. Your pans are gonna be so jealous.

    A grilled cheese sandwich, and a toaster with another grilled cheese in the bag

    Promising review: "I'm not going to lie — I'm a total sucker for gimmicky, single purpose kitchen appliances. That being said, these Toastabags are FANTASTIC. Out of all the products I just mentioned, these Toastabags have consistently gotten the most use. I love the ease of just taking two pieces of bread and some cheese and throwing them in the toaster. It's a lifesaver if you just don't have time to make food, the whole process takes maybe two to three minutes. My only tip is to make sure you thoroughly clean out the bags after every single use. 5/5 purchase — will happily repurchase when these have been used up. However, they are so durable (with proper care) that I can't see that happening for a while, I foresee getting a lot more mileage out of these things. I'd probably pay $10 just for one of these; the fact that it came as a three-pack makes this a steal." —Hamish

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $11.95 (also available in a set of three).

    18. An electric fabric defuzzer to bring your old sweater back to its former glory.

    A reviewer's before/after of a knit piece of clothing covered in pills, and then with the pills all removed

    These'll shave 'em right off with one pass — without damaging your sweaters.

    Promising review: "Okay, I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil' baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m de-pilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh. Hi, I’m obsessed. I can’t stop. I should send this back. I’ve started asking if my neighbors need anything depilled. I’m going to buy one of these for everyone in my life. Everyone needs to own this. Take it away from me." —Dena Jensen

    19. A wood conditioner formulated to polish up both finished or unfinished wood *and* add a layer of protection. Goodbye, water stains! I will never miss you.

    A before/after of a reviewer's table: above with marks and dirty spots, below shiny and polished

    All you have to do is apply with a cloth, wait 20 minutes (perfect time for a mid-cleaning snack!) and wipe off the excess.

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    Get it from Amazon for $14.07.

    20. A plant-based, paraben-free makeup shampoo because...c'mon. You gotta clean the stuff that goes on your face.

    Left: A reviewer's before image of a bunch of makeup brushes stained orange and pink right: The same brushes, but almost back to their original color

    AND it's cruelty-free and the bottle is made from recycled plastic.

    Promising review: "This is the best brush shampoo I've ever used. I've used brush shampoos from high-end/luxury lines, too, and they did not work as well as this. First and most importantly for me, there is no scent! I absolutely hate when companies put heavy perfume in products that end up touching or going near the face. When washing brushes with shampoo that is heavily perfumed, that just ends up irritating my sinuses whenever I'm using the brushes to apply makeup. So awful. This is not like that at all, so I can use my makeup brushes without having sinus/allergy trouble. It cleans extremely well! No more going over and over again like with using other makeup brush shampoos. A little goes a long way, too, so it is extremely economical. The value is awesome. I highly recommend this brush shampoo and will continue purchasing it." —L.L.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    21. A motion-detecting toilet light with 16 different colors to choose from. Your late-night trip to the bathroom is not only easier, but super fun to boot.

    A collage of toilets showing all the colors it can glow

    Promising review: "I am pregnant and get up to use the bathroom multiple times a night. This little gadget has been awesome. It provides a good amount of light but not too much to wake up my sleeping husband. It has multiple colors and the motion sensor is great. Plus it only lights up when you need it, unlike a night light. It is also really easy to set up. Love it!" —K. Adler

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    22. A three-pack of 14K gold-filled magnetic clasp converters so the act of removing your necklace is easier than ever.

    The three clasps

    These are especially great for anyone with arthritis or limited mobility in their fingers!

    Promising review: "Love these! Can't believe I've lived without these for so long. I used to not bother switching necklaces because it was such a pain taking them on and off, but this makes life so much easier and now I don't hesitate changing up my necklaces every day. They are so strong that I'm not paranoid at all that my necklaces will come off. Definitely ordering more so I can put them on every piece I own. Also, great for layering necklaces so they don't get tangled in back of your neck." –House Hunter

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $14.99 (also available in two-packs and singly).

    23. A pair of soft silicone grips to keep loose glasses in place. Pushing your glasses back up your nose 100 times a day has probably gotten old, right?

    Model with the grips holding the glasses behind their ear

    Reviewers note they'll keep your glasses comfier too!

    Promising review: "Finally the solution to my issue. My eyeglasses would always dig into the back of my ear on one side, not to mention they would slip down my nose from time to time. Tried a different pair of guards and they just did not do the job. Purchased these and what a difference, my glasses have never fit better, and oftentimes I forget to take them off they're so comfortable. Best purchase decision EVER." —Andrea Lincoln

    Get a set of five pairs from Amazon for $6.99 (available in clear, grey, and black).

    24. Two pairs of self-tying shoelaces so any pair of sneaks can be slip-ons, aka the vastly superior type of shoe.

    A pair of sneakers with elastic laces

    Reviewers note they're also great for people with limited mobility AND for putting sneakers on quickly during triathlons — every second counts!

    Promising review: "Love my Lock Laces. I have tried other brands, but lock laces are the true original and you can tell in the quality and performance. I like to replace all my traditional laces with lock laces, makes just tossing on some shoes to run out to the mailbox or take a quick trip so much easier. And, no more laces coming loose all the time!" —Joshua Bolio

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven colors; one size fits all).

    25. An elastic Boobuddy for anyone who wants to cut down on the dreaded jogging jiggle. Simply place this Velcro strap on top of your sports bra and presto!

    Nicole Nguyen / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I am a 36F and have an impossible time finding a sports bra for running. I used this band over a cheaper sports bra and am never going back. It’s so comfortable and so much more breathable than my expensive max support bras. I need an extra now for when this is in the wash!" —Elizabeth G.

    HydroFlask, ThermoFlask, and Camelback water bottles with black lid

    This comes with two lids, two straws, two cleaning brushes, two separate straws, *and* a handy finger loop.

    Promising review: "Is it weird to say I’m obsessed with these lids?! I have a 16-ounce Hydro Flask with a lid that I hated! It leaked and drove me nuts. I just got these and they’re great! They don’t leak and fit perfectly. I had to cut the straws because they were too tall but it was super easy!" —melissadupree

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in 24 colors).

    27. A Shark Tank-famous Flip-it! bottle cap to ensure you get every last drop of that shampoo/honey/dish soap/other extremely valuable liquid.

    Promising review: "These are so awesome for expensive condiments, shampoo, hand sanitizer, lotions and more! No more banging the bottle in my palm or on the counter to get the last little bit out. Just let gravity do the work for you." —shortstop88

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $19.99.

    on the left, couch base looking scratched up and on the right, the same couch base looking clean

    Promising review: "I can’t believe how well these work! Much better than I was expecting. I just had my home painted and the painters damaged a fiberboard medicine cabinet when they removed the masking tape. It ripped off the fake wood veneer. These markers completely filled in the ugly spots and the colors blended so well. It looks fantastic now!" —Shane

    29. A bottle of Trader Joe's iconic Everything but the Bagel seasoning capable of turning any bland meal into something truly wonderful.

    reviewer hand holding clear bottle labeled "Trader Joe's everything but the bagel"

    Promising review: "This seasoning blend is just stupidly delicious. My favorite use so far was for making homemade gluten-free bagels. They. Were. AMAZING. I thought I made enough bagels for the a few days, but my family ate them all in 24 hours. This is really fabulous sprinkled on scrambled eggs, too. My nearest Trader Joe's is over an hour away, so happy to be able to order this here." —Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "I. LOVE. These. One is in my bathroom, and the other is in the kitchen. The kitchen one I put blue colored dish soap in, and the bathroom one I put hand soap in, but I added just a tiny bit of the blue dish soap so that it would come out a light blue to match my bathroom. I will never, EVER go back to boring, bland, run of the mill soap dispensers again. These are it. I love them, love them, love. them!" —SerenityFL
