    1. A kitchen s'mores maker that'll bring the best part of camping indoors, thus eliminating the need for camping at all. Indoor people, rejoice!

    It even comes with two roasting forks!

    Promising review: "We have been really enjoy this little s'mores maker — it's not big, doesn't take up a lot of space, but does exactly what it's meant to do. We can't build fires or anything like that around where I live so this was our next best option. It's worked out great for us, only thing is it only has two of the little roaster sticks, so if you have multiple people roasting you would need something else to use to stick your marshmallow on." —Debb

    2. Mosquito Dunks to kill mosquitos before they're even big enough to bite you.

    You can throw these in your watering can or any standing water in your backyard. They contain BTI, which is bacteria toxic to mosquito larvae. It lasts up to a month and treats 100 square feet of surface water. 

    Promising review: "So far this is the best method I have found to rid your houseplants of pesky flies, gnats, and other unwelcome guests. I keep half a dunk in my watering can at all times. When it dissolves (usually after a couple months), I replace it with another. Works great on the houseplants. I tried a lot of other stuff first and nothing compared." —Joshua J. Homemaker

    3. A hair funnel that lets hair go directly down the drain without getting tangled and creating surface hair clogs. This works best for crossbar pattern drains — only use it if you have plastic pipes!

    4. A pet hair remover if you'd prefer your furniture to be fur-free. You can tell Fido to stay off the couch all you want, but dogs don't speak Human! Instead, use this roller to reclaim your seating.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    5. Canvas — a stunning art-inspired board game where players compete in a fictional art competition. Collect art cards to layer your paintings and win Best in Show.

    board game with painting like box

    Promising review: "This is a terrific and unique entry level game that can, however, be enjoyed by a wide variety of gamers. The rules are simple; but, the decisions can drive you crazy. Perfect. My wife of 47 years, a wonderful sketch artist in her own right, has begun to find gaming difficult due to Lyme and fibromyalgia. I bought this game based on its theme and what I learned of its gameplay through several videos. I thought if anything might bring her back to the table, this might. I was right. And, again, it's all because the gameplay is simple, the scoring is simple; but, the game does challenge with the occasional frustrating demands for choice. Do I lose this to gain this? What will give me the most bang for my buck; the most points in the long run? And, a bonus for us: a pair of well designed solo variants that allow us to sit down and play as a team against "Vincent" who is merely there to steal possibly valuable cards away just when we knew we wanted that one. And, did I mention how unique the transparent cards are to game play? All-in-all, we're enjoying Canvas." —Richard S. Parker

    6. Cloning paste that can be applied to any nodes on the stem of your plant to promote new growth. So see that leggy plant over there that's all stem, no bushy leaves? This fancy goo can help! It's made for orchids (hence the name; the keiki is a plant produced asexually by an orchid plant) but works on a variety of plants, like begonias.

    left: reviewer's orchid with many buds right: the buds have now bloomed into a shocking amount of flowers, i think over 20

    Here's how it works: Find a node and peel away the bract to reveal the bud. Apply a small amount of the paste and in two to eight weeks, a clone will grow out of the node! 

    Promising review: "This product is just AMAZING!!! I waited a few months before writing this review because i wanted to test the product first. I am just AMAZED! I have to say...depending on the season and the place on the spike where you apply it, you either get a keiki or new flower spike (which is awesome!). Based on my experiments: the lower on the spike, the more chances to get a keiki. The higher on the spike, the more chances to get a new flower spike. If you apply it during winter (tropical area winter) you will more likely get flower spikes. If you apply it during summer (tropical areas) you will more likely get a keiki — at least that's what I observed!" —Anne-Isabelle Bonifassi

    7. A windshield cover to keep your car as cool as Lightning McQueen.

    8. An inflatable mattress that sets itself up. Seriously, plug it in, pick your firmness level, and watch it blow up on expandable legs.


    Promising review: "This has proven to be a great product. It inflated without hesitation. Plug in, push button, and stand back. The bed does the rest. It has proven to be durable and able to accommodate over 250 pounds. It has been used daily since purchased in early November 2020. The price is a bit much for an inflatable twin bed, but thus far it has proven to be well worth it." —Sandy D.

    9. 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.

    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.

    10. A pack of eco-friendly sponge cloths that are highly absorbent and dishwasher-safe, so you can cut down on your — quite frankly — ridiculous paper towel waste., Amazon

    Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, but these deserve a shoutout. SO much more substantial than Handiwipes and you can really, really scrub with them but they never feel yucky like a sponge does. I have soaked them in bleach, thrown them in the washer, and they come out great every time. I've used the same two for a month now and they still look great! When they go downhill, I can compost them. I only wish they had a few other colors, maybe a royal blue or sage green?" —Amazon Customer

    11. A convenient cereal dispenser for anyone who would rather be hitting up the hotel continental breakfast. These keep your cereal fresh and allow for easy dispensing.

    Promising review: "We have three kids and a very small kitchen with very little cabinet/counter space!!! We used to keep our cereal boxes on top of our refrigerator, but I've been trying to declutter, and also come up with a solution for our kids to be able to get their own cereal in the mornings. THIS IS IT!!!! It looks great on our counter and we have very little space, so it fits just right! This has been the perfect solution to giving our kids the independence they need to get their own breakfast! It has been a lifesaver!!! Love it!!!" —tenle

    Get it from Amazon for $31.65+ (available in a single or dual dispenser and four colors).

    12. A genius soap dispenser and sponge caddy that keeps the soap directly under the sponge so you can apply more suds with a single push down.

    A sponge resting in the dispenser caddy

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I leave my sponge on top and do not have to reach under the sink to get my bulky Dawn dish soap bottle from under the sink every time I need it. It looks clean and my friends that have noticed it said something about it. I highly recommend it." —Lisa Camarena

    13. L'Oreal's Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation for a long-lasting base that reviewers swear by because it delivers luxury results at a pharmacy brand price.

    before and after of model wearing the foundation

    Promising review: "This is one the best makeup products of the year... I've tested this many different ways over the last two weeks and it has held up every time. I have used this on its own as a powder foundation, with and without primer and over foundation as added coverage as a light setting powder. This stuff is great and it holds up. My makeup looks flawless all day with minimal shine/oil breakthrough. I'm not seeing any makeup transfer to a mask either, but I'm not wearing one for long hours. I find I'm reaching for it daily and I'm glad I bought it!" —Amazon Customer

    15. A toothpaste dispenser to keep your counters clear *and* dispense the perfect amount of toothpaste every time.

    The toothpaste holder holding two tubes and three brushes

    Promising review: "Works great! The mount it comes with sticks great to our mirror. It will fit any type of standard toothpaste and has four cups you can use. Really great and saves so much time and room on our sink." —Cassie P.

    16. 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🦋

    17. 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.

    Reviewer before and after of their light, almost invisible lashes that are now dark and look fuller after applying the mascara

    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

    18. A Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro — it's pretty much a vacuum and mop in one. People with shedding pets swear by it for collecting stray hairs that the regular vacuum missed., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have a toddler who loves food fights with the floor and a large dog who sheds A LOT. I was skeptical because of the reviews but when used properly, it sucks up everything on the floor. I just swept and mopped using a broom, went over it with a hardwood sweeper and a Swiffer. The Crosswave still pulled up all of this hair and dirt. It’s also very easy to clean and the suction is incredible. With a little common sense, this is an amazing product." —Tristen

    19. A vegan, small-batch candle with a hidden bonus: the labels are full of seeds! Once the candle is done, fill with soil, plant the label, and grow flowers.

    The seed packet comes with a wildflower blend: purred snapdragon, black-eyed Susan, forget-me-not, English daisy, sweet alyssum, dwarf godetia, maiden pinks, catchfly, corn poppy, and lemon mint.

    20. A lint remover that works on clothes, furniture, and carpets so you can reclaim your things from hair and general schmutz.,

    Warning: Only use this for your sturdier stuff because it's a strong little device and might put holes in your more delicate clothing.

    Promising review: "This lint remover wasn’t confusing or bulky like some others. You just run it down your clothes to remove lint, hair, and fuzz, and it does its job! I was worried it would be sharp to the touch but it’s not, which is great if you have little kids. It’s easy to clean, you just pick it out with your fingers; it doesn’t get stuck." —JLemons

    22. An inflatable hot tub because sometimes you just need a good hot soak but don't wanna commit to having a giant hot tub in your yard year-round.


    Promising review: "We've had this for over a year now and are more than happy with it! We really wanted a hot tub but were not willing to spend thousands of dollars on one. This one is very easy to set up, take down, clean, and maintain. Very comfortably fits four adults. We clean the filters every few days to a week, depending upon use, and change them out when they no longer come clean, and change the water out completely about every month and a half. At that time I also wipe out the interior and exterior of everything as well as re-inflate the cover and tub as needed. We set ours up in mid-May and take it down in mid-October. You also have to remember to reset the GFCI switch every two days since it has an automatic shut off. We let it run nonstop and don't use a timer or anything. I even built an enclosure for it!" —Arsoth

    23. Ship of Theseus, a many-layered book from J. J. Abrams and Doug Dorst. It's kind of a book within a book with a fake library checkout list in the front and annotations throughout. You read both the book and the annotations to solve a mystery and watch two characters fall in love!

    the book with all the cards and more around it

    There are also postcards, letters, and other knickknacks to help you solve the mystery.

    Promising review: "I rarely post reviews; there doesn't ever seem to be anything I can add that hasn't already been said by some other reviewer. That's probably true in this case as well but I'm not letting it stop me this time. S. is truly a delight. I haven't been this excited by a book in ages. S. is the first non-ebook I've purchased in a very long time and I'm loving every minute I spend with it." —Corey Punches

    24. Light-up wheeled sneakers for anyone looking to make the most dramatic entrances (or exits) possible.


    There's a button to press to get the wheels to pop out!

    Promising review: "Personally, I rarely ever wear roller skates. But when these came, I put them on and after about 15 minutes of practice I got the hang of it! They’re pretty great shoes; every now and then I like to put them on and ride in them for a few minutes around my house. They’re super cool and pretty stylish. They’re pretty heavy so I wouldn’t recommend going a full day around them." —Ynelson

    Get them from Amazon for $99.95 (available in sizes 5.5–10.5).

    25. A minimalist, unobtrusive efficiency timer that doesn't tick, uses a solid color instead of numbers, and has a quiet alarm, making it a gentle way to track your time.

    two timers with solid colors that slowly turn white as time goes down

    Promising review: "I like to use the Pomodoro Technique when I study and had been looking for a Pomodoro timer to put on my desk. However, I am someone who easily flinches when I am focused, so a kitchen timer would not have done the trick as they're usually pretty loud. Once I saw this Minee3 timer, I knew I had to buy it. First of all, it brings a nice touch to my desk, and secondly, the volume is rather low, so I've never flinched while using it. Unlike an ordinary analog timer, it doesn't tick when it turns, which is quite nice." —ptmct

    27. A veggie peeler shaped like a gigantic sharpener. While this nostalgic item looks like it could fit into your old pencil case, it'll do just fine in your kitchen drawer.

    Promising review: "Silly gadget, but my son LOVES carrots and recently discovered the joy of cooking. He’s been perfecting carrot roses and now is willing to eat salads! Worth the money for that alone. I like the leaker side. I hate all the peelers I’ve ever bought because they fall apart while using. This one works and stays together pretty well." —Kristin

    28. Fuzzies — a delightful Jenga-like game that trades blocks for fuzzy pom-poms.

    fuzzy balls in tube shape next to cards

    Promising review: "This game has become a staple during game nights. We played an adapted version with a 4- and 5-year-old, and we have played it just with adults. Everyone always seems to enjoy the silliness of the game, while also the complexity of trying to get each fuzzy to stick to the tower. We have nicknamed the game 'pom-pom Jenga' in my house." —Marissa

    Mooncat is a woman-owned, vegan, and cruelty-free small business founded by Michelle Lin.

    Promising review: "I received my first one in the mail. It was so easy and smooth going on. Two coats later, AMAZING, vibrant, beautiful color. The way the light dances off of my nails, the sun shining off the polish, the prismatic guess have me mesmerized. Yep, I picked two more colors a week later. My daughter is now hooked as well. We love this polish and will be picking out a few more. This is the ONLY polish that we use now." —Johnine L.

    30. A turtle-shaped beer layering tool so you can get a perfect black and tan beer (or Arnold Palmer) every time. 

    Promising review: "Does what it says! The trick is to pour the Blue Moon so it has a nice head on it and then pour the Guinness over the turtle slowly so it filters through the head. Can do the same thing with a spoon, but this little guy makes it into quite the show. 😁 Impress your friends and family today! 🍻" —Stacy Tomlinson
