    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

    2. A leopard print dress for those days you want to get dressed and look like an extra in Sex and the City. It's got a drawstring waist and balloon sleeves becoming of a literal goddess.

    Promising review: "FITS PERFECTLY! I get a ton of compliments when I wear it. The tie at the waist really makes it perfect. I am 5’7” and weigh about 130 lbs. I love that the sleeves balloon out after the tighter area, it gives a great silhouette. The fabric looks even better in person! I love that I can cinch in the waist. I highly highly recommend this dress. If they had more prints I would buy more! It has a red option too but the tan looks more classic, the red is more spicy and sassy, I am buying it before I go to Vegas next month!" —Heather Seeley

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in women's sizes S—XL and four colors).

    3. A Wi-Fi extender because staying connected has never been more important. This'll boost your coverage up to 1,500 square feet — no more dead zones.

    Promising review: "This is a great product. We live in an old farmhouse and even though we have the fastest and highest internet service, we just couldn't get the signal throughout the entire house, or even our upstairs. But once we plugged in this range extender, we now have our 5G throughout the entire house and even the garage! It was super easy to install. No hassles. Easy-to-follow instructions." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two styles).

    4. An argan oil heat protectant that might be the only thing standing between you, your flat iron, and the hair of your dreams. Believe it or not, you can have completely straight hair without compromising your curl pattern. How? This heat protectant.

    Promising review: "There are a million great things that I can say about this product, but I'll let my photo sum it up! The first photo is when I first woke, the second is after brushing this product through dry hair, and the third is after straight ironing. It works wonders and the effects last all day! In addition, this stuff smells AMAZING!! So much so that my 4-year-old requests to have this sprayed into her just to smell it!! And it sprays so easily and evenly. I love this!!! —Rachael D

    Get it from Amazon for $15.55.

    5. A hidden bookshelf because books can double as decor 📚! Try organizing them by color for a more uniform look.

    It works by holding the cover of the bottom book!

    Promising review: "These are my favorite decorating item ever. Purchased four years ago in medical school. And have held up over many moves." —Susan Giampalmo

    Get it from Amazon for $23.68+ (available in four sizes and two colors).

    6. A gallon-sized water bottle so you don't have to go back and forth from the sink every hour just to stay hydrated. It's got a wide mouth to make cleaning and refilling a breeze.

    A reviewer's water bottle next to their laptop

    I didn't realize how dehydrated I was until I ordered one of these. It changed everything for me. I've since ordered three more for my family and friends.

    Promising review: "I have been using this water bottle for about a month now and I can say this is a fantastic water bottle. When it came to gallon water bottles, the main concern for me was the size of the mouth for the bottle. Most traditional water bottles have a bottle opening diameter of a little over 1 inch. This Joy bottle has an opening of a little over 1.5 inches. This allows me to fit larger sized ice cubes without worry of having to break it down or funnel it. I am also able to fill the bottle very quickly using the 5-gallon jugs I get from the store without the use of any funnels. As much as the motivational gallon bottles are nice, I did not care for the motivational writing that a lot of the gallon jugs that I saw. I love this bottle because it keeps things simple, it is easy to hold, has a nice clip to carry, and a large mouth to drink all the water or other beverages you may want. It is a must-get if you find it available and comes at a comparable price." —Dragon

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in five colors).

    7. A wood finisher to avoid spending $$$ just to restore your wood floors and furniture back to their original glory. This baby works magic 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

    Get it from Amazon for $13.79.

    8. A brushed nickel Command Hook so you can hang your face masks, towel, or jackets rather than throwing them on the chair. Making organization easy is key to maintaining a pristine space.

    The command hook packaging

    I bought one of these and I'll definitely be buying more. It has the style of a real hook without the hassle.

    Promising review: "Bought these to put on the back of the guest bathroom due to lack of towel racks in our rental apartment. My family who stayed for five weeks used it every day to hang the large bath towels and it works well. It's also much nicer looking than white or clear plastic and love the large size for bath size towels and robes." —Olivia

    Get it from Amazon for $6.75+ (available in four finishes).

    9. A biotin shampoo to help with shedding by depositing biotin, a naturally occurring vitamin, where it's needed — your hair. This person used the product for almost a year, and it made a world of difference 😱.

    A reviewer's thin hair // A reviewer's significantly thicker hair after using the shampoo for a yeaar

    Promising review: "My hair has been thinning lately, when I took a shower there would be so much hair in the drain, and I have been watching thinning. I couldn't imagine that a cure for this horrific problem could be so easy. I washed my hair immediately the day I got it in the mail. There was NO hair in my hair catcher in my drain after I washed my hair. It has now been less than two weeks, I've used it like three or four times, and I have NEW HAIR SPROUTING like new grass in my thinning spots. I just ordered a Biotin leave-in serum to keep the ball rolling. Anyone who is on the fence as to whether they should try this shampoo, should! I will NEVER stop using this shampoo." —bridget langston

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    10. A two-tier folding desk for anyone who's working from home but doesn't have space for a huge, immobile desk.

    Two-tier wood-top desk with black metal crossing legs

    Promising review: "I ordered this desk in a pinch. I live in Brooklyn in a smaller apartment where I quite frankly have no space to have a freestanding desk with my other furniture. When my company implemented a WFH policy last week, I took a gamble and ordered this desk because 1. I could collapse it and tuck it under my bed when I wasn't using it, and 2. It was spacious and sturdy looking enough to actually do work on. I received it today, and I am beyond pleased. No setup required — quite literally took it from the box, slid it from collapsed to open, and began working on it. I cannot recommend this enough for the price, functionality, and delivery speed!" —Sydney

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    11. A satin pillowcase that you'll never have to turn over because it's always *fresh*. This one is so much easier on skin and hair than cotton. It's puppy-approved too 🐶!

    Promising review: "I was originally looking for silk pillowcases, but decided to give these a try because they were a better price. I am not disappointed! I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair in the mornings and overall they are so smooth and comfortable to sleep on. I’ve washed them several times and haven’t seen a difference in the quality. I would buy again." —Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes and 23 colors).

    12. A fluffy gel pillow that won't go flat like most pillows. Plus, they're are game-changers for your neck and back. Plush pillows will make your bed look and feel ultra-comfy.


    Promising review: The Today Show has recommended these pillows. In a haze, I swiped to make my purchase. The first night they arrived I used one and didn’t tell my husband about the other. I literally hit the pillow and was out before our child was asleep. Apparently, I slept so good that night, that I didn’t hear the baby crying or hear my husband up with her. Needless to say, five nights later I no longer toss and turn. Hands-down the best pillow!!Amanda

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in two sizes).

    13. A soft robe for those who lack the motivation to clothe themselves after a shower but don't wanna flash everyone.


    Promising review: "Awesome!!! I love everything about this robe. It fits well in the arms and waist, and the length is perfect. It’s crazy soft and lightweight. I was hesitant to buy it because the price was so reasonable, I thought it would be crap. Stoked to be wrong!" —Mae

    Get it from Amazon for $28 (available in men's sizes 1X—6X and two colors).

    14. A collagen coating hair protein treatment because it's your best chance of reviving your hair from any chemical catastrophe. Ceramide 3s support moisture retention and elasticity which hair desperately needs after going through the wringer.


    Promising review: "I bought this product after reading all of the positive reviews, but I was pretty skeptical because no conditioner I've ever purchased seems to help my hair in the ways it says it will. My hair is very thick, frizzy, and has a natural wave. Even when I dry it and straighten it, it still just looks dry and poofy. The first time I used this, I wet my hair a bit and let it sit on there for 20 minutes or so, then showered it off and let my hair air dry (which usually ends up in the dreaded frizz). My hair has never felt so silky and light without being greasy. This stuff is the best hair product I've ever purchased. You really only need a little bit to get results right after the shower. I've always hated my air-dry natural wave because of the condition of my hair, but this stuff lets me keep my waves (no styling required) and makes them look shiny and healthy. Will purchase again when I run out!" —TF

    Get it from Amazon for $7.

    15. A pair of fleece slippers so plush, you'll basically be walking on a cloud. Memory foam soles provide arch support your feet won't stop thanking you for.,

    Promising review: "These slippers feel like a hug on my feet. They have a hard bottom so you can wear them out. The top part is so incredibly soft!!! I love these!" —Cyndi Lundeberg

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in women's sizes 5–10 and five colors).

    16. A mini spin hairpin that's easy to use even if you don't know what you're doing. People loved that they could go through their days without this baby getting loose.,

    Promising review: "These mini spiral hairpins are amazing! They are perfect for buns. Loose bun, tight bun, top bun you name it. Eliminates the need to use a million bobby bins and best of all they don’t leave dents on your hair. They also have regular size ones. Which also works for buns...but great for up-dos! These are a must-have. They have different colors to match your hair." —A Fam of Smart Shoppers

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.29.

    17. A sleek essential oil diffuser for aromatherapy sessions wherever you need them as long as you need them — up to 10 hours, of course.

    A reviewer's photo showing black diffuser on a table next to a succulent

    Promising review: "Super cute and much more well made than expected. It says the top part is ceramic, and it certainly feels that way. Bottom feet are bamboo, so the minimal plastic design is really nice. Be careful not to tip it, as instructed, it can be easy to spill water out. Besides that, it's quiet and I really like that they're aren't any tacky colored light features." —GabbyW

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in three colors).

    18. 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

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $14.99.

    19. A gold curtain rod so you can ditch your tension rod for something sturdier. Hang it a few inches higher than your windows to make your ceilings look higher.

    Promising review: "This curtain rod is so nice! I couldn’t believe how heavy and sturdy it was for the price! So glad I ordered it. We plan to order the black now and swap out the rods in the rest of our house." —Tara H

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

    20. A stainless-steel gooseneck electric kettle that'll heat your coffee, tea, or plain water to your preferred temperature in five minutes and keep it warm.

    A reviewer's photo of gooseneck kettle on their kitchen countertop

    Promising review: "I've gone through three different brands trying to find a solidly built, safe electric kettle and finally settled on this one. It's got a nice design and good functionality. The temperature control is off ~ +/- 5 degrees which is pretty reasonable for the price point. It heats rapidly and consistently, actually shuts off when it's supposed to, pours easily, and (so far) doesn't rust. Can't really ask for more." —L.A. Kane

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    21. A set of wooden coat hooks because they look a million times better than that chair you're using as a coat rack.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these. Was recommended these by a friend and so happy with my purchase. Perfect for hanging wall decor like macrame or even for towels." —Sarah RM Smith

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $13.88+ (available in five colors and six quantities).

    22. A water-resistant insulated jacket for layering up and staying warm without weighing yourself down with a bulky coat.

    A model wearing the jacket in black

    Promising review: "I stood outside for 15-20 minutes in 23 degrees F and never felt cold. My legs and ears can't say the same. My core stayed nice and toasty warm. I would suggest this to anyone that needs the best travel jacket that is warm yet light and takes up little room. Completely impressed is an understatement." —Zachary Mayes

    Get it from Amazon for $33.65+ (available in men's sizes XS—XXL and 13 colors).

    23. A set of glass meal-prep containers so you can store your hot and cold food in the same place without worrying about them mixing.

    A reviewer's photo showing five prepped meals in the glass containers

    Promising review: "These meal prep containers are awesome! I can take my food straight from the oven and put it in container without worrying about melting. There is a vent on the lid and the containers don't leak if they are sealed. These are also oven-safe and you can section of your food since there is a divider in it (with two sections). Perfect for meal prep and meal portions." —Sara

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $31.99.

    24. A pair of leggings because if you've gotta put on pants, they might as well be stretchy and soft like these.


    Promising review: "I’m a girl with a lot of leggings and these white leggings are the softest I own. They fit great and don’t see through much if wearing the right color underwear. They are my favorite leggings. I’m getting more." —Carley Jet

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two women's sizes that fit S-XXXL and 22 colors).

    25. A mug warmer for the person who likes to sip slow and anyone who puts down their coffee and forgets it until it's cold.

    reviewer photo showing a mug of tea on the mug warmer

    Promising review: "It's going on a little over a year since I got this coffee warmer and I felt I needed to let everyone know that this is the best coffee warmer I've gotten. I work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it is on the entire time, five to six days a week. It keeps my tea at just the right temperature — not scalding or room temperature like other warmers I've purchased. The 60-inch cord is long enough to go across my large desk. The hot plate is 3.25 inches in diameter, making it the right size for even my large-bottomed coffee mug. The entire warmer is 5.2" by 8.6", so it's not cumbersome having it sit on my desk. This was a great purchase. I'm glad I got it." —Christin Fern

    Get it from Amazon for $10.44.

    26. A handheld electric milk frother to prepare coffee that's beautiful enough to rival that by any professional barista.

    Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors).

    27. A cable management box that'll organize and conceal those annoying cords that nobody 👏🏾 wants 👏🏾 to 👏🏾 see. If you have small kids or pets, this should def be in your cart already.

    Promising review: "This box does the trick. I'm able to place a few cords in here and the only thing I would change is to make it so the top stays on; maybe a groove it has to slide through so it can't fall off. It looks nice and it works well." —Gigi

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

    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
