    1. A pair of mirrored glasses so you don't have to crane your head like a giraffe to watch TV or read in bed.

    Promising review: "I didn't know what I was missing until I used this. My life is now complete. If you enjoy comfort and lazy binge-watching but don't care how ridiculous you look wearing these, you have found nirvana. My glasses fit in these just fine. Takes a minute to get used to, then it becomes your reason to live. Expect people to laugh at you, but forgive them for they know not what they are missing." —Michael Boyd

    Price: $14.88

    2. Some reusable deodorant remover sponges because that discolored stain on your shirt ain't it. With this sponge, you'll be scrubbing away build-up in no time.

    No water required of course! Simply swipe them around and over the area, and watch the stain slowly brush away.

    Promising review: "I’m honestly completely amazed. I have — no, I *had* tons of shirts with deodorant stains on the armpits. It was when my favorite black cashmere sweater got some really horrible ones which made it impossible to wear that I looked for a solution. This was that solution. Five or six swipes with one of these and it was gone. I can wear my sweater again!" —Morgan

    Price: $7.83

    3. A lined fleece coat for chilly days where you want a layer that doesn't weigh you down. Reviewers got so many compliments on this; nobody will believe you got it from Amazon.

    Promising review: "I knew that this plush look was on trend. What I didn't expect was the luxurious feel of the plush. I have received numerous compliments on each outing. This was my BEST fall purchase, HUGE fashion impact for a very reasonable price." —DEANNA TENNISON BELER

    Price: $52.69 (available in women's sizes XS—XXL and eight colors)

    4. A pair of washable shoe insoles that you can swap out of your smelliest shoes and toss into the washer. No more trashing perfectly good shoes just because they smell, this'll absorb the stench.


    Their top layer is a soft cotton terrycloth, which is where their ~absorption powers~ come in.

    Promising review: "10/10 would buy again. They start to develop dips under the balls of my feet after a bit, but I just throw them in the wash, and they fluff right back up. They’ve been washed and dried three times now, and they’re still in excellent condition. Only thing I would recommend is that you select the “Fluff/No Heat” option if you decide to dry these in the dryer. It won’t ruin the insoles if you forget— it’s just a pain to have to get on your hands and knees to dig in the dryer and peel them off the drum!" —Corey

    Price: $16 (available in women's sizes 5–12 or men's sizes 8–13) for two pairs (one white, one black)

    5. A pair of silicone grips for keeping your glasses where they need to be: at the TOP of your nose. Finally, your glasses won't slide down your face like a ski slope.

    A model wearing their glasses with the grip

    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

    Price: $6.99 for a set of five pairs (available in three colors).

    6. A backseat bag-holder because the car can be a bit of a blender for the contents of your purse.


    Plus, the hooks have a side-opening attachment for easy installation, so they won't damage your seats!

    Promising review: "I love these! I recently purchased a smaller car and don't have room for my purse in the front seat anymore. These books are awesome and sturdy." —Erin

    Price: $8.99+ (available in two colors)

    7. A bottle of Jergens wet skin lotion for anyone whose skin dries up like the Sahara before they get around to putting on lotion post-shower.

    Moisturize before getting out the shower and start saving time.

    Promising review: "I've always been one who didn't want to take the time to slather my skin in some lotion that took forever to sink in. I have found the holy grail of solutions!! This lotion has the consistency of conditioner. I turn off my shower and it only takes a minute to apply. I don't even pat it dry. I just throw on my robe and start applying products my face. It absorbs quickly and it keeps my skin hydrated ALL day! Love it!" —Meagan

    Price: $5.32 (available in four scents)

    8. A wood finisher that'll restore your wood floors and furniture back to their original glory for under $20. People will legit think you got new stuff.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff after one use! We bought our house two years ago and over the course of two years, our hardwood floors have taken a beating. We have had two dogs through potty training, our nephew, and just regular wear and tear. We were exploring having the floors refinished but that's when I found this stuff! ITS AMAZING!!! Even the scratches from the dogs came right out. The shine is back and they feel so much more smooth. I even got the Restore A Finish for some larger areas where the former residents must have moved furniture a lot. No need to refinish the floors, this will now be something I do every few months. I did about 1,000 square feet with only one third of the bottle. Works best if you wash floors first, use the Restore A Finish on bad areas, and then use this on everything." —MrsW

    Price: $12.36

    9. A wrinkle-release spray because let's face it, you've been lazily folding the same three sets of loungewear for far too long. No need to whip out the iron when a wrinkle-free look is a spray away.

    This handy spray is a wrinkle remover, static remover, odor eliminator, fabric refresher, and an ironing aid. Just tug it a bit after spraying and smooth it out with your hands.

    Promising review: "As a college student with a full course load, I'm in and out of my room all the time. This helps me keep my clothes wrinkle-free without having to waste time ironing them. It's also great as it leaves a VERY nice smell on my clothes." —Seth

    Price: $11.36 for a pack of two

    10. A surge protector so you can plug in all of your devices at one time thanks to its pivoting outlets. If the closest outlet is flush to furniture, you'll be able to simply change the direction of the cord. Brilliant!

    The surge protector

    Promising review: "Just got this and so far so good. I love that I can choose whether each plug is front-facing or turned to the side. It makes for great cord management. I also love that the design uses the TOP plug on the outlet. So many I found use the bottom plug and all those reviewers complain that the weight of the adapters/cords pull the thing out of the wall. Finally, I like the versatility of being able to screw it into the outlet center point if you need the additional stability, but also that you don't have to do that if you want something more easily removable." —Susan B.

    Price: $14.99+ (available in four formats)

    11. A wine stopper because it's light-years more convenient than recycling cork. It's easy to use too, almost like a bottle opener that stays in place.

    The wine stopper will keep your wine fresh for up to a week.

    Promising review: "I love this stopper. It works better than anything else I've tried at keeping Champagne carbonated. The longest I've used it is five days and when I open the bottle it was still very fizzy; probably about three-quarters compared to when it was first opened. It can be a little tricky to make sure you get the sides snapped on but once you learn the trick it works great. When you take it off be sure to have your hand or a towel across the top as it has a lot of pressure." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $10.97+ (available in two colors)

    12. A pack of LED dimming stickers for anyone who craves complete and utter darkness at night. To make the lights on your router, TV, computer less intense, stick on one of these.

    model's fingers peeling off one round black dot from a sheet of many and sticking it on a tv; a before and after of an internet model with bright lights that are dimmed

    You'll still be able to see 20-30% of the light so you know your electronics are working. Although if you prefer, you can double 'em to block even more light, or go for the ~blackout edition~. They're completely removable and leave no residue behind, too!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game-changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape but this product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $5.99 for a sheet with over 100 stickers. If you have a big clock face you'd like to dim, also check out a similar product that you cut to size, $8.99 for two six by three inch–sheets.

    13. The queen of waterproof liners, NYX Epic Ink Liner to withstand the trials and tribulations of life, especially water and smudging. It'll stay put without fading all day until you're ready to take it off.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed / Via

    Promising review: "I have heavy lids that have deflated after major weight loss and now sit ON my lashline. Because of this, any eyeliner will transfer right? If I sweat or cry, I'll have a copy of the perfect line I made somewhere on the upper lid, right? Well, I was trying them all with NO luck no matter what they cost or claimed! Then I bought this one. Unfortunately, this one came just as I was about to give it the ultimate test. My husband of almost 40 years passed away after fighting cancer for four years. He was my everything and I still love him with everything I have. He died at home with me four weeks ago and I have worn this to the funeral and every day since. I've shed buckets of tears and because it's in the 90s with 100% humidity here in Ohio, I've sweat rivers too. But not one transfer, smudge, or fade away! I hope you NEVER have to worry about your liner under circumstances anything like this but if you cry happy tears or sweat, you can count on this one more than any other one I've tried!" —Maureen Spaulding

    Price: $8.56

    While I can't quite compete with this above reviewer's testimony, feel free to check out our full review of the NYX Epic Ink Liner.

    14. A set of workout dice and cards because working out from home isn't quite the same. Keep things fresh with these dice that'll quite literally shake up your routine.

    Instruction cards with QR codes and six dice, each in a different color

    If you don't know how to exercise, scan the QR code for workouts. Oh, and you should probably skip the white die if you're a beginner.

    Promising review: "These dice have been a lifesaver for me. They are so easy to just roll and do a very quick workout. If you have time, keep rolling if not come back later and roll. The kids love it too and the scanning cards are great! It's just what I needed on my quest to get back into shape!" —C Etch

    Price: $33.97

    15. A warm Edison bulb for easily revamping the ambiance of your bedroom if you're tired of that stale, white, fluorescent light. After all, there is a reason Mariah Carey refuses to be seen in fluorescent lighting.


    Promising review: "I'm in love. These Edison bulbs are a phenomenal addition to just about any room in the home. I bought these bulbs for my bedside table lamps. They're a perfect addition to my Steampunk industrial themed bedroom. Definitely recommend these Edison bulbs. Side note: my bedside table lamps are touch lamps with three dimming levels. The bulbs work on all three dimming levels." —Zachary

    Price: $14.99 for a pack of four.

    16. An acupressure device that viewers said alleviated their splitting headaches. Wear it between your pointer and thumb and boom, the pain gently subsides.

    Reviewer's hand with the U-shaped device clipped on

    There are no studies about this product, it's not scientifically proven. However, it does work for some people. If it doesn't work for you in 60 days, you can get a refund!

    Promising review: "I get frequent headaches and have utilized the acupressure spot in the past with my own fingers and found relief. But my fingers would soon start hurting from keeping the pressure. This little tool takes care of that problem. It doesn't make my headaches disappear completely but it definitely reduces the pain." —Kai

    Price: $19.99 (available in four colors and three sizes)

    17. A makeup brush-cleaning egg and shampoo combo because making sure your brushes are free of bacteria and dirt is a top priority, especially now.

    a soapy brush and textured silicone egg; before: dirty brushes looking pink and orange and after: the clean brushes now grey and beige

    BTW, the shampoo works really well on makeup sponges (like your Beauty Blender!) too — for proof, peep this Amazon reviewer's "before" and "after."

    Promising review: "I love these little cleaning eggs! I coupled one with a brush shampoo. It cleaned out loads of product even after I thought they were clean. My brushes are now fresh and soft. I was able to really get my brushes clean without having to be overly rough with them. A solid purchase.

    Tip: hang your brushes upside down to dry to keep the bristles soft and fluffy and allow the bases to fully dry out. (I use an IKEA sock hanger)." —Shadia Elhert

    Price: $4.69 for the two-pack of eggs and $6.99 for the shampoo

    18. A fabric shaver to make your very used sweater look like you just brought it home from the store.

    a before and after of a sweater

    Promising review: "This thing is excellent. I just 'repaired' two cashmere sweaters and one modal-blend jersey top to like-new condition. The waste compartment fills up quickly and will start clogging the blades if not emptied frequently. I will share one trick I found for emptying the area around the blades. Remove the waste compartment and hold the unit vertically over a garbage can while turning the defuzzer on. Blades will spin and the rest of the pills will fall out. Enjoy." —Fine Print Reader

    Price: $12.99+ (available in six colors and two styles).

    19. A grooming glove because you were gonna pet them anyway, might as well brush them while you're at it.

    a series of images showing pet hair on the glove

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming. This dog grooming glove is the right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away, leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    Price: $7.99

    Check out this full-length review hair-removing glove here (#19).

    20. A water-resistant softshell jacket that has zippable pockets so your valuables won't come tumbling out while you're on the move. It's got a full zip front, collar, and cuffs to retain warmth too.

    A reviewer wearing the jacket

    Promising review: "I'm always skeptical of ordering things like this coat online. I'm glad I did. I've been wearing this jacket for about three weeks. This jacket fits me a little large, but not too bad. I'm 6'1" and weigh 245. I ordered the XXL Tall. It's PLENTY long enough. I'd rather have it fit a little big rather than a little small. The weight of the jacket is just right. I wanted something to wear in the spring and fall. I live in Ohio, so in April, the temperatures start out in the 20s and warm into the 50s and 60s during the day. Not too heavy, but not too light. It does shed water. Overall, I'm very pleased." —Beck

    Price: $38.26 (available in men's sizes 2X—6X and three colors)

    21. A curl smoothie because most natural hair products are water-based and this one is made of aloe. There's also coconut water to naturally balance and hydrate your lovely coils.

    The jar
    Maui Moisture

    Promising review: "I am so glad I took a chance on this! First, this states it's for thick hair and I believe that to be true. I wear my hair very short (TWA - tapered) and my usual style is a wash and go. So I used this instead of the Cantu Cream leave-in I had been using and was not pleased with due to the residue it left behind. The last step of my routine includes Eco Style Gel. Directly out of the shower, my hair wasn't nearly as white as I expected it to be! Not only that, my hair dried with no streaks! None! I have never had a cream leave-in that did not leave streaks in my hair. And you'd think it couldn't get better than that but it does. Typically, my hair dries and it's hard. I thought it came along with the territory of using gel. Not anymore! My hair dried soft but was still defined by the gel! I sometimes forego the gel and do my wash and goes with leave-in conditioner only. The definition doesn't last like when I use a gel, and I can get 4 or 5 days out of a wash and go. To make my morning prep easier, I use gel. But now when I touch my coils, they feel moisturized! I love it." —AmazonAddiction

    Price: $6.97

    22. A pair of hoop earrings for wearing around the house every once in a while to feel like a total baddie.

    A reviewer wearing the earrings in stainless steel

    Promising review: "I just ordered them friday and received them Sunday! They're beautiful and sturdy. I also have the rose gold ones that I love and are a bit bigger." —Ana

    Price: $9 (available in three colors)

    23. A curly pudding to leave curls shinier than Lil Mama's lip gloss. Kiss fly away strands goodbye, and say hello to well-defined kinky coils.

    Miss Jessie's,

    Promising review: "I have curly/wavy hair. I have tried pretty much every hair product out there and this is by far my favorite! This is one of the few products that does not make my hair crunchy. My hair also seems to be curlier when I use this product:) The leave-in conditioner is also awesome." —Bells

    Price: $10

    This business is Black-owned.

    24. A crewneck because they're practically made for laying around the house and they're cozy enough to wear outside on a breezy day. You can never have too many of these!

    A reviewer wearing the crewneck in green

    Promising review: "WOW, this is an amazing sweatshirt. I initially purchased a Large. It’s very soft, comfortable and warm. The sleeves are slightly longer, so even after a wash they still cover the wrist. It’s sligjtly fitted so has a slimming look to it. And you can’t beat the price. I liked it so much, I got one in XL for when I want extra space, and one for my wife because she loves the soft broken-in feeling of sweatshirts for lounging." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $14.95+ (available in men's sizes XS—XXL and 31 colors)

    25. A tank top for wearing as an undershirt when it's cold or on its own when it's warmer. Reviewers loved that it's stretchy, thick, and not too long.

    A reviewer wearing the tank top in white

    Promising review: "Love these! I had previously purchased a different brand from amazon and they were so thin! They are already falling apart after just a few washes. These cami's are amazing though! They are a tad thicker, but not too thick! They are perfect for my daily wear underneath my shirts. For the price and quality these cannot be beaten! Will definitely be purchasing more!" —KSJ

    Price: $24.95 (available in women's sizes XS—XXL and fourteen colors)

    26. A set of two lacrosse balls that, believe it or not, aren't for playing the sport. They'll help you roll the stress out of your muscles sans a costly massage therapist.


    It's time to let that tension go, especially in your back, shoulders, neck, and feet.

    But you don't *need* a class: there are lots of YouTube videos with good instructions so you can follow along! Here's a basic tutorial, a routine specifically for back pain, and one for hip pain. You can also do many of the exercises up against the wall, if they feel too intense on the floor. (Of course, if you're concerned about any of this, feel free to talk to your doctor, first!)

    Promising review: "I have chronic neck and should pain due to computer work and stress. I can't afford massages all the time so these help. They are harder than tennis balls so if you prefer deep tissue massage, then these will benefit you. If you are too sensitive for deep tissue, these might be too hard for you." —Heather

    Price: $10.95 (available in three colors)

    27. A completely clear umbrella to actually keep your head *dry* when the wind blows while it's raining. The cupped design makes it less likely to break due to heavy wind.

    Model holding the dome-shaped umbrella, which comes down to just under their shoulders

    Promising review: "This umbrella has saved me too many times to count. I go to college on a campus that is prone to flooding and storms. This thing protects me from all rain and wind; when paired with my rain boots, nothing can stop me. There was a powdery substance on it when it arrived, but it wiped off fine with a towel. After the year it shows no signs of breaking." —Destiny D

    Price: $19.50+ (also available with birds, rainbow dots, or with iridescence)

    28. A set of drawer organizers for anyone who dreams of having a sock and underwear drawer that isn't a living nightmare. It'll display your items so you can see what they are before pulling them out to wear.

    A reviewer's organized drawer with socks and bras

    The set includes four bins: one with six cells for scarves and tights, eight square cells for underwear, seven wide cells for bras, and 24 small cells for socks.

    Promising review: "I love these things, they’re so versatile. I have them all over: drawers, closet shelves, cabinets. I use them for more than just underwear too. I use them for dry art supplies in open shelves and just about anywhere else I need to organize." —Kindle Mac

    Price: $15.97 (available in seven colors)
