    1. dishwasher magnet you can toggle to say whether the contents inside are clean or dirty — a seemingly small gesture with potentially major peace-keeping results. If you've ever experienced the horror of your SO putting dirty dishes into a dishwasher filled with clean ones, you need this in your cart, stat.

    Promising review: "What took them so long?? Every household should have one of these. Does your partner point to the dishwasher and ask you, "Hey, are these good?" Mine did, almost daily. Not anymore, though! A breeze to install (our dishwasher is magnetic, but I'm really glad it came with adhesive pads — someday when we move, if we need them we have them!), and even though I bought it (mostly) as a joke, I use the heck out of it. Slides easily when it needs to." —Andrea Braun

    Get it from Amazon for $5.94+ (available in four styles).

    2. robot vacuum and mop that'll end arguments over who cleans the floor each week. With this, it's a truly hands-off cleaning experience, so as long as at least one of you takes initiative and presses the "on" button every once in a while, you're good.

    It's compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, and you can even schedule cleanings and switch modes using the app. 

    Promising review: "My Coredy R750 robot vacuum does an amazing job of cleaning all the flooring in my home. We call her Molly because anyone working in our home deserves to be known by their name. Molly cleans hardwood, porcelain tile, area rugs, and carpet better than my upright vacuum. The fact that she goes under most of our furniture and our beds is an added benefit. She learns the places she won’t fit under and will avoid them. When you add in the damp mop feature Molly truly takes over a big part of my weekly cleaning. Being able to start her whenever needed or to preset a cleaning time when we are not home is a great feature as well. I am always amazed at how much is vacuumed up each time that Molly cleans. I am so glad that my daughter recommended the Coredy R750 to me. You will not regret purchasing one." —Carolyn Gilger

    3. And in the spirit of low-lift cleaning, a bleach-free, no-scrub weekly shower spray you simply — as the name says — "wet and forget," meaning no more fighting over whose turn it is to get scouring. Just spray it on, let it sit overnight, and wipe it off the next day for a stain-free shower — no intense arm exercise required.

    Promising review: "We cannot BEGIN to tell you what a lifesaver this is! We have two old fiberglass tubs with vinyl shower enclosures that no matter what amount of scrubbing we have done with everything from bleach to cleanser to vinegar and baking soda would NOT come clean. After I took my shower last night, I sprayed down the tub and walls. Within minutes, all the built-up water deposits and dirt and grime began to melt away in front of my eyes. I left it on overnight, and when I got up this morning, it did not look like the same tub and shower. This product is a godsend, especially for old folks like us who have difficulty getting down on our hands and knees and scrubbing anything. More importantly, it performs as advertised. We plan on using it as part of our weekly cleanup routine, in addition to purchasing the Wet and Forget Mold and Mildew Remover for use on the vinyl siding of our house. This is truly an overnight sensation!" —Amazon Customer

    4. A cute crocheted remote caddy that drapes over your armrest so your partner will have an easier time remembering that the remote does, in fact, have a designated spot. Now you can stop doing the "check under every blanket, pillow, and cushion until you find the clicker" dance every time you wanna watch something.

    Charolette's Attic is a small biz based in Fort Polk, Louisiana, that specializes in handmade crocheted accessories.  

    Promising review: "It looks great on my husband’s recliner! Now the remote controls are within reach, and they are no longer getting lost since there’s now a designated place for them. I also love that it’s crocheted! Thank you so much!" —Kimberly A.

    Get it from Charolette's Attic on Etsy for $17+ (originally $20+; available with one, two, or three pockets, in two lengths, and in six colors).

    5. A pack of solar-powered, motion sensor-activated lights in case remembering to leave the lights on is...not your SO's strength. With these, you'll be able to see where you're going when you come home at night since they automatically power on when they sense your movement.

    Promising review: "Love these lights. Very bright, sturdy, and economical. I have bought two sets and have them spread out on the deck. I have four little dogs that go out a lot during the night. Sometimes I would forget to turn floodlights off after they would come in. My husband would complain about this bad habit. Now I just depend on these lights to turn on and off without a fuss. Best buy ever. Highly recommend these lights. Thank you for such a great product." —G2

    6. A cult-favorite TubShroom (77,000+ 5-star ratings!) that proactively catches any hair that makes its way into your drain so the water doesn't take friggin' FOR-EV-ER going down. Let's face it, there's often one shedder in every relationship, and this is the perfect quick fix.

    Promising review: "I hardly ever write reviews, but this thing is so amazing I had to share. With every shower I take, I shed a TON of hair and (as you can see from the picture) stick it to the wall so that no hair goes down my drain. I thought this method was working out well but my drain was continuing to stop up. I figured it must be my sister's fault since I was so good about not letting any hairs go down the drain, but I went ahead ordered the TubShroom after seeing advertisements on Facebook. I got this thing and after only two showers, it collected a crap ton of my hair that I didn't catch. It really is so easy to install and wipe away the hair, exactly like the videos. Awesome invention, and I'm super happy with this purchase!" —Megan K.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in six colors, including a set of two). 

    7. Pet House candle, which isn't just a pro at masking unpleasant animal odors, but also at covering up, oh, you know, smells resulting from your SO's penchant for cooking Brussels sprouts every other night and their overflowing hamper.

    It's made of soy wax and can burn for up to 60 hours!

    Promising review: "These candles are fantastic! They smell great and do a great job of eliminating any odors in your house, not only those from pets. They do work best if you burn them for one to two hours at a time, but will get rid of the smells of wet dog, fecal smells, urine odors, and I’ve even found them useful for cooking odors. I highly recommend these candles. I purchased the Vanilla Creme Brûlée scent. I often get headaches from powerful scents, but have never gotten one from these lovely candles!" —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (also available in packs of two and dozens of scents).

    8. The Adventure Challenge, a book chock full of fun date ideas to keep things fresh and exciting. There are 50 adventures — the catch is, they're scratch-offs, and you're supposed to commit to whatever is revealed! But hey, a little spontaneity is never a bad thing, and it'll help you break out of any date night ruts you find yourself in.

    Oh, and if you go for the camera set, you'll be able to document your dates with actual photos that don't, you know, get forgotten about in some random folder on your phone.

    Promising review: "We have done about six of the dates so far. We have laughed harder than we have in a long time. I have been touched by the thought that went into each of the dates. It is clear that they are not just thrown together, there is a purpose behind each of the 'rules' of the date. I would say if I had made up the dates my husband would have balked, so it helps to have it be from a third party with the requirement to commit. There has not been a date so far that we haven't thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from. My husband LOVES it and has wanted to do several dates in a weekend (our original goal was to do one a week). For perspective we are in our 40s and have been married for 22 years. It has been a bit reminiscent of our early dating years and reminded us to be more adventurous. So fun to shake it up! The only way you get the benefit is if you fully commit and go for it. Break out of your self-made boundaries! You strengthen your bond by shared experiences that invoke emotion: laughter, uncertainty, vulnerability in trying new things." —Terrell

    Psst — there are also other versions of The Adventure Challenge for family, friends, and even solo travelers, if you want to explore more options!

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 or The Adventure Challenge for $49.99 (or with the bundle pack for $157.99 that comes with their signature camera).

    9. Or a set of personalized "date night dice" perfect for indecisive couples who are tired of the default always being ordering takeout and watching reruns of The Bachelor. These will plan your evening for you — including the food, activity, and whatever comes after — so just "roll" with the punches and see where the night takes you!

    Sugar Blush Studio is a Colorado-based, woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2016 that specializes in bespoke party goods, decor, and gifts. 

    You can either order the dice with the preset suggestions (listed on the seller page) or customize them with your own — each dice can accommodate six phrases up to 15 characters each, which you can leave in a note for the seller. 

    Promising review: "Love so much! Bought it for a five-year wedding anniversary for my husband. It’s so cute and I anticipate both of us having lots of fun with this, plus quicker decisions because 'the dice has spoken' 🤣. Packaged very well and arrived well on time. Quality is beautiful. Thank you so much!" —Jenn 

    Get it from Sugar Blush Studio on Etsy for $24.95+ (available in standard or customized). 

    10. An ingenious lasagna trio pan that won't only ensure everyone gets a crispy edge piece (objectively the best), but also lets partners with different dietary restrictions build their own lasagna compartment with ingredients of their choosing. Whether one person doesn't eat meat, one doesn't eat gluten, or one can't have dairy, this solves everything!

    Psst: It's perfect for things like brownies, loaf cakes, and bread, too. 

    Promising review: "There's nothing but good coming from this pan! Yummy crunchy edges on every piece! I made three different kinds of lasagna in this pan and all I can say is that there were already plans for the next batch before this one was gone! This pan is heavy duty, has an awesome nonstick coating, and will definitely stand up to much use. The recipe called for spraying the pan with nonstick spray but it was completely unnecessary. Have already suggested this pan to others." —srenee

    Get it from Amazon for $18.52.

    11. A pair of noise-canceling Apple AirPods Pro to make WFH at the same time a whole lot more bearable. Honey, I love you, but listening to your back-to-back video calls all day? Not so much.

    They come with three sizes of silicone tips to comfortably fit your ears and a charging case that provides more than 24 hours of listening time.

    Emma: "I have a pair of these, and they're not playing around. Once they're securely in your ear, you can toggle the headphones between noise-cancelling and regular sound, depending on your situation. I've been working from home, and the noise canceling is so effective that I can work next to a window where my neighbor is doing heavy construction and I don't hear anything louder than a faint buzzing. It's quieter than if I'd just plugged my ears with my own fingers. I'm also a runner, and these don't budge when you're sweating, which is nice. It's also handy that these toggle out of noise-cancellation mode, because I feel better being able to hear traffic and other people around me when I'm out and about. The TL;DR is: I love these so much I have zero interest in owning another pair of headphones for as long as I live." For more, read her full AirPod Pros review!

    Promising review: "I’m thrilled. I love the fact there are multiple ear tips, and the small ones fit my ears great. Thrilled with the noise-cancelling feature while I stare at a family member yapping loudly on the phone, and I don’t have to crank my volume up to drown them out. The controls are easy. It pauses music when I take an earbud out, so I’m not fumbling to pause and then yanking an earbud out while yelling, 'what?' I’ve never spent this much on headphones, but these are worth the sub-$200 I paid." —Pixie

    Get them from Amazon for $179.99.

    12. A Squatty Potty for quicker, more comfortable BMs so neither of you are impatiently waiting for the other while they take for-ev-er doing their business. It props your feet up for the optimal colon-opening position, meaning your current "push (and wait), push (and wait)" routine's days are numbered.

    FYI — many reviewers with chronic constipation and other gastrointestinal issues swear by this!

    Promising review: "As a nurse, I can tell you that the logistics behind this are real! The human colon was designed to pass stool through the body in the squatting position rather than the sitting position that you have when sitting on a toilet. When you’re in the squatting position, your colon is not being kinked like it would be if you are in a sitting position, thus it effectively decreases the need to push as hard and this decreases the risk of hemorrhoids, constipations, and major colon diseases! With all that being said, I have been using this for a few weeks and I love it!" —Jess Sewell

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    13. And an essential bottle of Poo-Pourri, which very much comes in handy when your SO finally finishes up find yourself in a b-room you wouldn't subject your worst enemy to. There are 21 scents to choose from, with everything from Wild Poppy Berry to, yes, Ship Happens!

    Promising review: "My wife and I live full-time in our motorhome. Our small space gives us few options, other than leaving the coach, to escape the odors from our spouse's calls of nature. This spray does an excellent job of minimizing the offensiveness of those odors without having an obnoxious odor of its own. It's in a convenient size to easily fit a pocket or purse. Only a puff or two is necessary to do the job. Therefore, this little two-ounce bottle can last for many months. We always keep a bottle of this spray handy in our medicine cabinet." —Lewis A Edge Jr

    Get it from Amazon for $6.77+ (available in eight sizes and 21 scents). 

    14. A tear-off "What I Love About You Today" pad, because even the most affectionate couples need reminders of how much they're appreciated! Filling it out will undoubtedly bring up fond memories of why you fell for them in the first place, and sweet thoughts about why you're still crazy about them now (aw!). 

    A purple and white checklist full of prompts about compliments for your partner

    Promising review: "With this pad, it is incredibly easy to be both romantic and efficient. I've been using this consistently for a few months now — filling out a sheet when I feel especially enamored with my partner, and sending it to his apartment. This way, he gets a delayed but genuine affirmation of my appreciation for him, which makes him feel appreciated and wooed. It's a really fun and easy way to do that, because what's easier than checking off a few boxes? My roommates and I use the Knock Knock pads for a variety of things — especially this one and the one for grocery shopping lists." —Rachel F. 

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19

    15. A dual-zone comforter that'll finally settle one of the most common issues between partners: what the ideal sleep temperature is. Each side has a duvet insert designed with either hot or cold sleepers in mind, so you can each drift off without shivering or sweating. Hear that, "compromise"?

    The duvet showing one half is warm and the other is cool

    Promising review: "This comforter is what we’ve always needed. My husband and I are always tangled in blankets because I need more but yet they always end up on his side. This comforter provides an all-in-one solution that keeps me warm and him cool and our bedroom looking calm and zen." —Hannah

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in queen and king sizes, and four styles).

    16. And a plush memory foam mattress topper, which won't only make your stiff mattress more comfy; it'll also cradle and support each of your bodies, meaning you're less likely to be woken up by your partner getting up in the middle of the night to pee (a blessing if there ever was one).

    Promising review: "I have lupus and fibromyalgia, and two tumors in my lower back in between two vertebrates. Also nerve damage in my upper back that goes down my arms. This is the best purchase I've ever made!! Took me a while to actually purchase it and do research on others like it. When laying on it I don't get the 'pulling' feeling in my lower back or legs. My upper back does not get the pinched-nerve pain. I can barely feel my husband move (the shaking of the bed). I'm so happy I got this. The 3 inches is perfect. If you have a bad back I recommend you getting this. Had a smell to it when you first open it. But it faded as the day went on. Five stars across the board. I got out of bed without that stiff feeling." —debra

    Get it from Amazon for $35.34+ (available in 2- or 3-inch depths and 10 bed sizes).

    17. Plus, a set of bed bands that'll secure that oh-so-wriggly fitted sheet while your SO tosses and turns. If you've been dreaming of getting a restful night's sleep without your face being smacked by an elastic corner that's just popped off your mattress, you're welcome.

    Promising review: "I hate myself. I'm 30 years old. Why didn't I buy these sooner? If you are sick of sleeping on wrinkled or pulled up top sheets these will change your life. For 13 bucks. Buy it." —Bonus Joe

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three colors, two sizes, and in larger packs).

    18. A six-outlet wall charger complete with USB ports to ensure one partner doesn't sneakily unplug the other's phone when they need to charge their laptop and there's only one outlet in the room (tsk tsk!). Plus, it comes with a handy night-light!

    Promising review: "These things are amazing. I have one in almost every room of my house. The light is just enough to be able to see at night to use the restroom or navigate the house without turning every light on. I love that the USB ports are built in — no more looking for an adapter. AND the plugs are set far enough apart you can plug some of the bigger things like Google assistant or large AC adapters and still have plenty of room!!! These are a must have in a tech or smart home." —SeiranCrow

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two models). 

    19. set of cleaning K-Cups any couple consisting of one coffee and one tea drinker needs ASAP, since they'll flush out all of the residue that's been making your morning bevs If there's anything that'll help in a relationship, it's ensuring one's caffeine of choice is nothing short of ~perfection~ in the a.m.

    Pop one in and brew as if you were making your favorite hot drink, then brew again without the cup to rinse it out.

    Promising review: "I bought this product because the needle in my Keurig 2.0 keeps clogging, causing inconsistent brew and taste. These cleaning cups fixed both of my issues, and I especially liked that it was really quick and easy to use… I put the cleaning pod in and ran one cycle, then took the pod out and ran a rinse cycle to clean out any leftover grinds. FAST, EASY, and GREAT results… VERY HAPPY!!" —Corey West

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $9.95 (also available as a pack of 12). 

    20. A sunrise alarm clock, because waking up to the jarring sound of your SO's phone playing Fall Out Boy every morning is hardly the best way to start your day. It gradually gets lighter 30 minutes before the alarm goes off to simulate a natural sunrise, which in turn will gently help you wake up on the right side of the bed.

    The round digital clock in three settings of brightness as time passes

    Promising review: "I haven’t had an alarm clock in my bedroom for over four years, because I can’t stand how bright the lights are. I was hesitant to buy another alarm clock, but wanted to give the sunrise feature a try. I love it! Firstly, I’m glad I didn’t pay for the expensive version, because this is exactly what I wanted. I can completely dim the clock’s light while I sleep, so I’m not bothered by the illuminated clock at night. I then set the sunrise feature to begin 30 minutes before wake up, and set the alarm to the bird chirping/nature sounds. It has completely changed the way I sleep and wake up and begin the day. The sunrise feature slowly wakes me up, and the nature sounds for the alarm are soothing and pleasant instead of the usual jarring blare of an alarm clock. Very happy with this purchase! Would recommend." —Tara

    21. A cooling, memory foam contoured sleep mask you'll be super happy you purchased on nights when you're craving a good night's sleep but your partner has at least two more hours of TikTok-scrolling in them. Bye bye, disruptive screen glare!

    Promising review: "I don’t require complete darkness when I sleep, so I hadn’t thought I’d ever want a sleep mask. Then 2020 happened! The pandemic and its associated anxiety have messed up my sleep in a major way. I often get to sleep just fine but wake up later unable to get back to sleep. I’ve decreased caffeine, established a regular bedtime, avoided screens hours before bed, and tried melatonin. I guess it’s all mental for me, but when I wake up like that, heart racing and sweaty, and I can’t see anything — no clocks or moonlight, no dozing form of my beloved next to me, no cat demon staring at the foot of the bed — I tend to settle down easier. It’s like wearing the mask reminds me I’m supposed to shut my eyes and sleep. And I usually do, right until the alarm goes off. I like the molded cups around the eyes. A flat mask would make me feel like I’m rubbing off all my eye cream and lash serum through the night. I have not washed this mask yet, but I think it’ll hold up just fine gently hand-washing it. The adjustable band is soft and doesn’t slip out of place. If you’re on the fence about trying a sleep mask, you might as well get a really nice one! Give this a try, especially if you have anxiety like I described." —Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    22. A roll of adhesive weather stripping, which is great for sealing up drafty windows, but also for placing around door frames so you're spared from the sound of your SO shouting at the TV whenever their team is losing 😫. 

    Reviewer photo showing the roll of weather stripping

    Promising review: "My neighbors loiter outside of their apartment at all hours of the day (our front doors are side-by-side), and before putting these strips around my door, it would literally sound like these people were seated right in my living room just yap, yap, yapping away. After installing the strips, the non-stop talking and hanging out outside is completely muffled. I wish I would have looked into purchasing and installing these weather strips sooner!" —Avaya

    Another promising review: "Just received and installed. Quick and easy to install. One roll split in two covers one standard doorway. It works great at keeping the cold draft out. Stopped it completely. I’ll be using the other roll to fill gaps around a couple of window AC units. I would recommend this to friends and family." —Amazon Customer

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.97+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    23. A set of ~actually comfortable~ wax earplugs to pop in whenever your bed buddy is possessed by one of their epic snoring attacks. They're designed to mold to the contours of your ears, giving you the perfect fit.

    Just note that these are only available via Amazon Fresh, which you must be a Prime member to use. Amazon Fresh offers free shipping for orders over $35.

    Emma: "TBH, I swear by these so aggressively that I have them on a subscription. They're like ear glue. My apartment is on a busy street and my upstairs neighbor is a noisy human being (does this count as a subtweet??) and once I pop these babies in I can barely hear a thing. Plus, my ears never get sore with these in like they do with headphones or other earplugs. Check out my full Mack's wax earplugs review for more deets!"

    Promising review: "I tried everything to drown out my husband's snoring. I bought several other earplugs on here. I tried turning white noise up in my headphones and listening to it during the night. I tried sleeping in other rooms. But NOTHING works like these. When you get the airtight seal in your ear just right, it blocks all the loud noise. And the best part is I am still able to hear my alarm in the morning (although it is a louder alarm tone right beside my side of the bed). Get these and you won’t regret it. They are affordable and literally saved my marriage. I can finally sleep in peace." —Ansley Oermann
