    1. An umbrella holder complete with a water tray that can hold up to six umbrellas. It'll also make a nice addition to your entryway decor.


    Promising review: "It’s cute, stylish and fits a lot of umbrellas. We love it! This added some fun personality to an otherwise drab accessory. Plus we never have to guess where our umbrellas are! It’s very well built, doesn’t wobble and neatly catches the drips in the concealed plastic tray. Great product!" —Snaptrick

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in three colors).

    2. An instant stain remover spray, so you can bring back those lawn chairs that have been stuck in that one webby corner of the garage back to life.

    Promising review: "I have a small three-tier water fountain in my patio. Naturally the birds in the community have come to rely upon it for drinking and bathing. I literally sprayed this product and walked away, I actually left it on overnight, I got busy with other tasks. When I checked back all of the mold was gone, everything, with no damage to the painted stucco wall or cement and no scrubbing literally spray and leave." —Mark

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two sizes and in packs of two and four).

    3. A sunrise simulation alarm clock because daylight saving time took away your sunrise mornings. This clock simulates sunrise and sunset, helping your body ease out and into bed every day.,

    This alarm clock mimics the light of a sunrise by gradually changing from dark red to bright yellow before the alarm goes off. There are seven different colors and 20 warm light levels, so you can start your early morning off on the right foot.

    Promising review: "I love this little wake up light! I got it to help me in two ways: to help me calm my mind so I can fall asleep and to ease my waking up so that I stop hitting the snooze. I like the flexibility features. I can even tone down or turn off the lighted time numbers, a feature I didn't expect. Now I wake up gently with a light that gets gradually brighter. This thing did all it says it would do and, frankly, better than I expected." —Betty Boom

    Get it from Amazon for $39.96.

    4. A five-pack of reusable cotton mesh produce bags ready to hold all of that produce, ripe for the picking, that you'll find at the local farmers market.

    Get it from Wild Minimalist for $29.99.

    Also available in cotton muslin.

    5. A tower fan for the days when the cool breeze turns more into a warm fog. The fan has a nighttime setting, a timer, and a remote when you can't muster the strength to get up and turn it on or off.,,

    Promising review: "I bought this fan in 2017 and it's still going strong! This fan is powerful, has a great rotation, and hits you just right! I use this fan almost constantly in the spring and summer months. It always keeps me cool. I would buy several more copies of this fan if I could. Look no further, it's worth the money, and definitely a fantastic buy." —Jill Voyton

    Get it from Amazon $60.90+ (available in two colors).

    6. A multi-pack of seeds because your local urban garden has inspired you to test the waters to see if you, too, have a green thumb.

We planted some in peat cups with potting soil soon after they arrived, and the germination rate was very high. There's an excellent variety of basic garden veggies here. We are quite happy with this purchase!" —Chief Cynic In Charge

    Promising review: "Recovering from a season full of illness and entering allergy season, Molekule has freshened my home and helped my family be more comfortable as flowers bloom. Not only that, it removed a weird smell coming from a room one day when I turned it on. It's easy to move around and sleek, as to not disturb the aesthetic of our home. Love it!" —Brittany L.

    Get it from Amazon for $499+ (available in two sizes).

    8. An electric pressure washer just begging to get your driveway glistening for the season of lemonade stands and yard sales.

    Promising review: "The power washer was delivered Monday, it’s Wednesday and I have washed two cars, cleaned the driveway and sidewalks, cleaned the back fence, and the work keeps piling up, everything I see now needs to be cleaned! This little dude does not back down, it has plenty of power, and it's surprisingly not too loud. The soap dispensers work great and the tips are easy to change." —MAR

    Get it from Amazon for $159.

    10. An 18-inch charcoal grill because we only need a few rays from the sun for it to be grillin' season.


    Promising review: "Great little grill. Easy to put together. Enjoyed a great hamburger on it for the 4th of July. Easily had room for 13 good size patties on it. I recommend buying a cover for it so it will last longer." —Jessica Brazell

    Get it from Amazon for $69.98.

    11. Or, an electric smokeless grill that'll let you get your BBQ on even if you don't have the outdoor space to grill big.

    Promising review: "I loved everything about this product. It came right on time for my BBQ event. I live in an apartment complex and we can't use charcoal grills and I can't afford the expensive gas ones so I came across this product on Amazon and I loved it. Steak came out amazing. It gets sizzling hot super fast and dinner was ready in no time. 1,000,000% recommended!!!" —Sharon Frager

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    12. A Shark cordless vacuum for easy tidying up so spring cleaning doesn't actually have to take all spring.

    a vacuum cleaning handheld and on hardwood floors

    Promising review: "Best thing I’ve ever purchased as an adult to help make life simpler. I can do just about the whole house on a full charge if I go quickly. And every time the canister fills up because it sucks so well. I think what I need more is new carpet. Goes from carpet to hardwood no problem. We even take it on trips in the trailer. A must-have for anyone that sweeps or vacuums every day. No more cord. No more big heavy bulky thing." —fm0143

    Get it from Amazon for $239.99.

    13. A macrame fruit hammock because you're overflowing with spring fruity goodness and it's starting to take over your counter space. Plus, it's only fair that your fruit gets to lounge around in a hammock, too.

    14. Gardening shears to make precise cuts while tightening up your new flourishing garden.

    Promising review: "I love gardening and have used a lot of different pruners over the years. I recommend these pruners for a number of reasons. First, they are easy to lock and unlock. I really like the slider mechanism versus others that have a latch-type lock. Second, the long, narrow blades are ideal for cutting the stems you want without injuring or accidentally cutting adjacent ones. This time of year I like to cut a few flowers from my yard daily and bring them inside to enjoy. A well-made and well-designed pruner makes this task even more enjoyable." —Liv

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A washable sponge because spring is a great time to tidy up your house. And, if you're making more eco-friendly changes in your household, this sponge could be a great addition. Just pop it in the washing machine or dishwasher and it's ready to reuse again.

    Marley's Monsters / Etsy

    Get it from Marley's Monsters on Etsy for $8.50+ (available in four colors).

    16. A bleach-free outdoor cleaner that'll clean the dirt and grime off of concrete, brick, wood, composite wood, vinyl, patio furniture (including outdoor fabrics), roofing shingles, fiberglass, painted metals, boat exteriors and more. Is that the yellow brick road? Nope, it's just your sparkling clean walkway.

    Have more dirty outdoor surfaces? This cleaner can also be used on brick, wood composite, and patio furniture!

    Promising review: "I used this to clean off our outdoor patio furniture this spring and it did amazing! It's easy to use, spray off, it has no strong odor, and it didn't bleach or leave residue on our clothes. This stuff is amazing!" —Lisa Schensted

    Get a 32-ounce bottle from Amazon for $9.98+ (also available in Small Concentrate, Large Concentrate, and Trigger styles).

    17. A serving platter in case you're in need for added decor for your kitchen. This serving platter is obviously functional but also beautiful.

    Fable, Kit Stone / BuzzFeed

    I'm a sucker for a speckled design. This serving platter made me feel like I need to upgrade the rest of my kitchen. It's so chic and I love the weight of it. I used it to serve my family fresh baked cookies but after they're eaten, I'll probably use it as a fruit tray, or even as the base for a floral display. Truly, the possibilities or endless. One thing is for sure, this baby shouldn't be kept in a box. It must be displayed.

    Promising review: "I bought this platter as part of a full dining set, and I love all of it. It's the perfect size, cleans well in the dishwasher and looks beautiful. It was the perfect size for a charcuterie plate for a quarantine pod of two." —Lauren M.

    Get it from Fable for $54.

    18. Some storage bins to pack away those heavy comforters and winter coats and make room for sundresses and muslin bed sets.

    Promising review: "I am trying to get things in my house organized. I picked these up and they are made very well. There are so many things I have that I want to put into storage like seasonal and household décor I don't want to get rid of now but will use down the road. You are still able to see through these which makes these great when your looking for something. I plan to use these on storage shelves in my basement, but they are really good to use just about anyplace you may have." —Amazon Customer

    Get a four-pack from Amazon for $54.86.

    19. Or a six-pack of space-saving vacuum bags that'll help you get the most out of your storage space.

    Promising review: "This is a supreme product. The bags are made of thick, quality plastic. It is very easy to seal and to vacuum. I placed a dryer sheet in each sealed bag to keep the clothes smelling fresh. My closet looks so well-organized, I have much more room and my winter clothes are stored safely and beautifully. I highly recommend this product." —A.A.

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I bought this for a gift for my husband who drinks iced coffee all year long. He says it makes such a smooth-tasting and strong iced coffee. He gets two drinks out of each batch that he makes. It's easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher. It's durable — I know as I'm clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!" —rnnichole

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

    23. A garbage guard because you're not the only one who's opened a garbage lid only to run back into the house in full panic when all the bugs fly out. When seasons change, the bugs come out to play.


    Promising review: "Got an outdoor can, the kind the mechanical arm on the garbage truck picks up and tips over, with the lid opening by gravity. Placed this on the inside of the lid, near the hinge to lessen the chances of it being scraped off during emptying and no flies/maggots! No apparent odor, just seems to put a big hurt on the fly party that used to be my trash can (litter box contents, remnants of meat, etc.) " —Michael E. Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $7.44.

    24. A cutting board with a cracker well just begging to be the focus of all the attention during brunch with the besties.

    Sonder LA is a Los Angeles-based brand that believes that functionality and aesthetic should exist within each cutting board they make. They create cutting boards that aren't to be kept in a drawer or a cabinet, but that are beautiful enough to be displayed as part of your kitchen decor.

    Promising review: "Here's the deal: cuttings boards are fine. You can use them to cut things My wife bought me this for Christmas because I guess she thinks I'm into cutting boards? Turns out SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. Actually, that's not true. I am not into cutting boards. I am into this magisterial masterpiece some people malign as a simple cutting board. It is not an understatement to say that this cutting board changed my life and has given me new purpose. Need to cut some veggies for a dank pot of chili? BOOM. Done. Easy. Want to impress your pretentious friends with a dope charcuterie presentation? BOOM. THIS. IS. YOUR. BOARD. Want to take your board for a jaunt around the block to share your freshly squeezed juice with your neighbors? BOOM. Inner handles! Super sexy inner handles that are perfect little cubby holes for your fingers, btw. Are you not a terrible person and therefore care about things like sustainability?

    a reviewer photo of a table with the before on the right side of the photo and the after on the left showing a significant difference in the shade and shine of the wood

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING! My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all. But, then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $13.25.

    John Mihaly / BuzzFeed

    To use, just attach the Wad-free to the four corners of your sheets, and wash and dry them like normal!

    BuzzFeed editor John Mihaly loves 'em. In his own words:

    "I'm one of those people who actually likes doing their laundry (gross, right?) but I've also grown to really dislike dealing with my bedsheets and duvet cover. King-size sheets just don't get along with my washer/dryer; they're always bunching up and taking forever to dry. Bringing them to the laundromat became my only option, and a costly one at that in terms of both time and money.

    Then one day an email popped into my inbox introducing me to Wad-Free for Bed Sheets, a detangling device that would do away with my very specific laundry woes. Equal parts excited and skeptical I was! But after my first test on both flat and fitted sheets as well as the duvet cover, I'm sold! My sheets were all evenly dried (in a reasonable amount of time) and didn't ball up causing wrinkles or the washer to start rocking all over the place.

    As much I'm going to miss seeing that cute old dog who sleeps by the space-heater at the laundromat, I'm going to enjoy not having to leave my apartment or open my wallet every time I want clean sheets."

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $18.99.

    28. A funny doorstop so you can prop that door open to let that spring breeze flowing through your space.

    the doorstop under a door

    Promising review: "My wife and I get a kick out of this thing! We use it on our office/bedroom door because the door closes on its own and our dog likes to come in and out of the room while we’re in here. It works great. Easy to use and it’s funny to look at. Glad we got this instead of a boring triangle!" —Sara

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    29. A portable air-conditioner in case even the tiniest amount of heat turns your space into a sauna. This compact wonder can act as a fan, a dehumidifier, and an air-conditioner.

    the portable air conditioner

    Promising review: "My wife and I live in a small two-bedroom apartment here in New York City and while we can purchase a regular air-conditioner, installing it would be a hassle because we would have to hire a handyman. Some of them are just downright expensive without the BTU power to cool our apartment. This handy product has saved us a lot of money because not only is it powerful enough for our apartment, it's also portable with minimal installation (you only need to install the exhaust pipe that goes out of the window). I like that it's portable so we can transfer it from room to room if we want to without having to install additional air conditioner units in our apartment. Overall, we are very satisfied with this product and it will definitely come in handy during the humid NYC spring and summertime." —ap619

    Get it from Amazon for $339.99 (available in three colors).

    30. A pair of sunblock curtains perfect for the days when you want to sleep in and don't want the sun waking you up. Or, for setting the scene for movie-watching on days where the sun seems like it will never set.

    Promising review: "Before I purchased, I read through so many of the reviews on these curtains. I had previously purchased similar curtains and was sorely disappointed when they didn't work, so I was a bit skeptical that these would be any different. But, I figured hundreds of five-star reviews couldn't be wrong — and they weren't. These do exactly as they say — block the light completely, and help to muffle sound. I live next to a busy highway and as soon as I put these up, it sounded like the highway was far in the distance. I track my sleep every night, and since I've had these curtains I've gone from a 60%–70% quality of sleep to 90%+ every single night. Highly recommend!" —Nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in 13 sizes and 17 colors).

    You spontaneously bursting with springtime gladness the second it hits 69 degrees.
