    1. A baking pan in an ingenious maze shape so everyone can get a corner slice of brownie.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this pan, the best way to cut the brownies is to wait till they are cooled down all the way. Then take the plastic spatula that it comes with and loosen all the sides, than flip the pan over on a counter or cookie sheet and take them out of the pan and then cut them. I had no problem getting them out of the pan and the pan washed very nicely." —Mrs. Mary A. Snider

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95.

    2. A pop-up pee pad with a mini fire hydrant to give your pup a target while peeing inside.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The little fire hydrant pops up automatically when you unfold the pad, and it has a contrasting color that allows them to see it (while looking really cute). It's the perfect size for a small dog to aim at, it's absorbent so it doesn't splash, and it's small enough that dogs can share the pad without it getting in the way. I have two toy poodles, one boy and one girl. They boy would never make it onto the pad (and nearly ruined my floor) because he didn't have anything to aim at. So I ended up creating my own hydrants out of cans of food wrapped in potty pads. They worked but it was a pain to create a new one each time I put out a new pad. This is so much better! I'm in love with these. Best of all, these are hands down some of the best quality potty pads I've ever used. Liquid jellifies almost instantly so they don't track wet footprints on the floor, and they absorb the smell." —A. Platter

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in three size packs).

    3. A hinged frame that opens up, so you can easily display your child's latest masterpiece. Them = the greatest artist of all time. You = the greatest art handler of all time.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I needed some frames to display my 2-year-old son’s artwork. These were a good price and had good reviews. I couldn’t be more pleased. They have ample space to store more artwork and come blemish-free. No nicks, chips, or divots in the black paint. You can hang them vertically or horizontally. We decided to purchase two additional frames." —Joanna K

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in three colors).

    4. A pack of butterfly-shaped sticky traps to install near your houseplants so you can finally evict all those tiny fly free-loaders.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a plant in my office that had terrible gnats. I ordered this product and put one in my plant. Within one hour, there were about 10 gnats stuck to it. Within four days, it was covered on both sides with gnats. Very pleased with this product! Very easy to use, no odor, and even looks cute in my plant!" —HD6774

    Get a pack of 25 from Amazon for $14.99.

    5. A coffee pod holder that monitors your inventory and automatically re-orders for you when you run low. Basically a robotic personal assistant.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have a very small office. Bought this for its looks and ease of filling the bin with K-Cups. Was not initially interested in their replenish program as we were buying Dunkin Donuts K-Cups from Costco. Out of curiosity, I went to their website to see how much they would charge for the same coffee. I chatted with a representative and found out it's cheaper! Suddenly I was interested. She explained the program, how the unit works, and walked me through the set up, which is really easy. This device sees the level of K-Cups in the dispenser and suggests when to order a refill via the App. It even allows for any K-Cups you may already have on hand. I could not find any negatives to using this product. Good price, amazing technology, and amazing customer service." —Jimmy D

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

    6. A pack of adhesives with pen loops so you never lose track of your favorite pen again.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My planner didn’t have a pen holder and I had lost several favorite pens keeping them in the spiral spine. Recently I found these innovative pen loops. Every pen size I tested out worked with the loop. I’ve already given a few of them to friends and family who said they like using them, too." —Quiltermom

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two color combos).

    7. An ice tray that fully seals so you can turn that thing sideways and shove it in between your various mysterious bags of frozen somethings. No need to throw away that container of three-year-old frozen beans to make room juuuust yet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE ice cubes in my drinks, and it's so annoying to have ice cube problems. I really researched ice cube trays and read a lot of reviews until I found these trays. It's so nice not to have to worry about spilling water just trying to get them in there. Also, they come out of the tray so easily! No more fighting to get the cubes out. These just kind of pop out when you press down on one side." —Kalisa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A pack of sheet suspenders for the restless sleeper who always ends up in a tangled ball by morning. Keep those suckers in place!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. We bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing! They're the kind of thing you'll never know how you lived without before." —LinseyB

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    9. A bracelet holder that'll work as your third hand so you can secure your bracelet all by yourself.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wonderful helper! I don't know how I fastened a bracelet before ordering this. Each time I use it, it seems to be easier to use." —LuAnne B.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in four colors).

    10. A hanger rack for all your spare hangers that are just hanging around, getting tangled, and making you miserable. Is it weird to have an organizer for something that organizes your clothes? No, no it is not.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"—Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $18.46 (available in six packs).

    11. A pack of shower curtain clips, because the last thing you want to happen after watching Psycho is to have the curtain billow in and attack you.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We live in a small apartment that is a converted attic space. As such we have slanted ceilings throughout different spaces. One such space was in the shower, where at the end there were six or so inches that the shower curtain did not reach. It was not a huge issue in the summer because it was hot, and I needed a little fresh air; however, as it started to cool down, I was losing precious steamy warm air out this giant gap. I saw this product in a BuzzFeed article, and it was exactly what I was looking for! The adhesive is very strong but the curtain itself is easy to remove to open. I only used one, and it was strong enough to keep the whole side of the wall blocked." —starvingcollegestudent

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $7.99.

    12. A food tracker to make sure your pet isn't overfed or underfed. No amount of sad puppy dog eyes can dupe you into feeding Mr. Wiggles twice.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if it's not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    13. A six-port outlet that swivels so you can finally plug stuff in behind your couch.

    Amazon

    It also has two USB ports so everyone can get a charge.

    Promising review: "The swivel feature on this outlet extender is pretty cool. In addition to increasing the number of outlets (6 instead of the usual 2), the rotating sockets allow you to plug things into tight spaces. There are others just as good for that purpose for less, but this one is more versatile. I also love that it has a built-in surge protector and green and red lights let you know the status." —Cat Lady

    Get it from Amazon for $18.93.

    14. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top. You need all the water you can get — it's cold out there!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    15. 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.

    Amazon

    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 into 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 $11.99+ (available in three sizes and colors).

    16. A baby wipe warmer, because there's nothing your baby will hate more than a cold wipe shocking them awake in the middle of the night.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I’m SO glad I got it. My child is two months old and we’ve been using it since we got home and there’s been zero mold, it’s super easy to fill, holds a whole pack of wipes, has a nice long cord, a little light, and locks on the sides of the bottom lid to keep it down when pulling out wipes. Now, when I use cold wipes in the daytime, they bother my hands because I’m used to the warm wipes, so I can’t imagine how nice it is for my little one to have them warmed up. It heats up only on the top of the lockable portion of the warmer. Not too hot, not too cold and no little hands can get into it as long as it’s locked. The only issue (which isn’t huge) that I’ve run into is that when the wipes get low, the inside gets pretty hot. This is fixed as soon as it’s filled again. I was so indecisive on this issue and I’m so glad I decided to splurge." —BR

    Get it from Amazon for $24.48.

    17. A rotating spice rack that not only provides you with all the spices you need to start your culinary journey, but also comes with FIVE YEARS of free spice refills; that means you can sprinkle your sea salt with reckless abandon.

    Amazon

    The next time you want to make a mushroom gravy, you'll have Herbes de Provence right there! And chicken is going to taste so much better with a dash of rosemary. This tower comes with 20 jars of spices.

    Promising review: "I'd been needing a spice rack for awhile so I could tame the conglomerate of spice jars in my pantry. Love it. Looks great, well-made, and rotates well. Plus it came with 20 filled spice jars. To be honest, there were six spices that I'd probably never use, so I just emptied those bottles and refilled them with some I'd get more use out of. Seriously good deal, as the price equates to roughly $1.40 per jar for the spices (which would cost substantially more at the supermarket) and would make this awesome rack virtually a free bonus." —Dan P. or Carol P.

    Get a rack with 20 spices from Amazon for $32.92.

    18. A cleaning kit specifically for sneakers, so you can bring old, dirty kicks back from the dead.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Even though the price is arguably very high for this small amount, not only does a little go a long way, but it works wonders. I recommend using a toothbrush for washing canvas that is near shoelaces because the included brush is very coarse and will tear up laces. I've washed eight pairs of shoes and only used about 1/10 of the bottle. Best cleaner I have ever used, buying again when I run out. I recommended to all." —Christian Medina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    19. A salad mason jar with a little container for your dressing so it doesn't get soggy in the fridge. Now what's your excuse for not bringing lunch to work?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This jar is super portable since it’s made of plastic instead of glass. It’s larger than I expected, but I love how it has its own spot to store dressing. I haven’t experienced any issues with leakage. In fact, sometimes I have a bit of trouble opening it, but that’s probably because of how tightly I screw the lid shut. It’s super easy to clean and stores well in the fridge. I’m definitely glad I purchased it." —Samantha M.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    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.

    Amazon

    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 $4.83.

    21. A pair of grocery bag holders for anyone looking to avoid those horrible indents from carrying too many bags the usual way.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It usually takes me a dozen trips from my car to my house to get my groceries inside, and if I carry too many at once, the handles cut off the circulation in my hands and arms. These special handles solved all my problems. Today, I only made three trips from the car to the house! When I had to put the bags down to open the door, these handles laid on top of the bags and I only had to grab them, instead of searching for all the bag handles as they flopped around. Now there are no more bag marks on my wrist and my hands don't go numb! Who would have thought that something so simple could make my life so much better?" —Rosemary Smith Dattler

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. A pair of ceiling fan charms so you know what's going to happen on the first pull.

    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 them from Amazon for $6.59 (available in two finishes).

    23. Speaking of unwanted indents, 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.

    Amazon

    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 $28.44+ (available in five finishes).

    24. A heat-resistant hair tool holder that solves the age-old problem of needing to straighten your hair and then immediately throw it in a suitcase.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Up until now, I hadn't found a receptacle that I could put a hot tool into and was forced to leave them on the counter, where I often forgot to unplug them or even turn them off. This handy holder is a life-saver and has made sure I have remembered to be adult with my styling tools and put them out of the way of becoming a fire hazard! If you're like me and get makeup on your hands while getting ready, the black Polder material can get smudgy with cosmetic fingerprints, but doesn't everything in the bathroom suffer the same fate? Save yourselves the stress of thinking you'll burn down your bathroom and buy this product!" —KCyalater

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    25. A pack of fun cord markers so you don't have to feel like you're defusing a bomb every time you try to figure out which cord to unplug.

    Animi Causa

    You can write your own labels!

    Get a pack of five from Animi Causa for $13.99.

    26. A nail polish holder that hooks onto your hand, because your de-stressing activity should be as easy as possible.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great little device! I like to do my nails just before I go to bed so that I can lay my hands on top of the sheets and let them dry as I go to sleep. The problem is, I would try to hold the bottle between my raised knees, and it would slip and slide around. With Tweexy, I can do my nails anywhere, without having to squeeze the bottle between my knees, or needing to have a flat surface to keep it on." —Suzy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 18 colors).

    27. And a snout soother ready to smooth out your dog's crusty nose, bringing it back to pristine, boop-able condition.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.
