    I love this little appliance! It heats up fast, it cooks the waffle batter in minutes, and it barely takes up any space in your cabinet. Fun tip: the waffles are the perfect size to use as the "bread" in a breakfast sandwich.

    Promising review: "I love this waffle maker! I’ve always wanted one and glad I invested in this. The price is affordable and the color is adorable. It heats up pretty quick and is very easy to clean. Also, since it’s a mini, it takes up very little space in my cabinet (and kitchen counter when I use it.) Totally recommend!" –Diana

    Price: $9.99 (available in three colors)

    2. A socket shelf that not only provides a place to safely organize any electronic you're charging, but it also includes six outlets and two USB ports!

    Promising review: "I am so loving this socket shelf! What a genius idea! I love all the additional three-prong outlets and that it doubles as a surge protector so I can keep my larger kitchen appliances plugged in. Plus I can set my phone on the shelf and charge it while listening to music or watching a cooking video! I need one for every room now!" –Jwyand1

    Price: $24.99

    3. A tub of O'Keeffe's Working Hands hand cream that'll repair even the driest, most cracked hands. With all the hand-washing we're doing this year, this product will soon become your best friend.

    a tub of o'keeffe's working hands cream

    Promising review: "I have a skin problem due to a medical condition I have. My fingers start cracking for no reason. I tried everything from drinking water to different moisturizers to Vaseline, and honestly nothing worked for me. When I tried O’Keeffe’s Working Hands it was like a cure. Sometimes I have to use this several times a day, but it helps like it's a Grade-A medical treatment. I highly recommend if you have dry fingers and cracks from dryness. This keeps in moisture like nothing else. This hand cream and the lotion are both amazing!!" –MonaAmeri

    Price: $7.49

    4. A no-spill ice cube tray you can place at an angle to free up precious freezer space. The lid also prevents the ice from tasting stale.

    Promising review: "These trays are everything an ice cube tray should be. They’re user-friendly, the cubes come out easily, they make a nice-sized cube, and they don’t have to be placed perfectly flat! I’ve squeezed them in the freezer tipped and stacked with zero leakage!" –Chrissy

    Price: $10.59

    5. An express chopper that you can use to dice up an onion in mere seconds or make perfectly blended dressings and sauces.

    I have had this for a few years and it's probably my most used small kitchen appliance. It works just as well as those larger, more expensive food processors, and being able to make homemade salsas and dressings in seconds makes cooking so much more fun.

    Promising review: "I really love this, and I use it every day. Quick, effective, great value for the money. The multiple blades make chopping quick, and the food doesn't get stuck. The button on top is great. This was a replacement for a $100 food processor that broke pretty quickly. This one is much better. We've had it for months and it is still working great. Definitely recommend." –Deborah

    Price: $19.49

    6. A Dyson cordless vacuum you'll agree is worth all the hype — it has seriously powerful suction that can pick up pet hair and ground-in dirt. It's also super lightweight, so it's easy to maneuver around the whole house.

    person using cordless dyson vacuum to clean up a cobweb on the ceiling

    Promising review: "I’ve had this vacuum for over a month now and if I had the money I would buy one for everyone I know. It’s amazing. I can vacuum our 2,000-square-foot house on a single charge. The full power is great but only necessary for the handheld function (cleaning furniture and car interiors) in my opinion. I use it every single day and it’s pure joy. We are a family of four with a cat and dog and it is horrifying how much dust and hair I empty from this thing daily, but also extremely satisfying. What a perfect appliance this is." –Targetallday

    Price: $399.99

    7. A pair of slip-on sneakers with memory foam inserts so you can literally walk for miles in them and still feel like you're walking on ~clouds~.

    a quilted black slip-on sneaker

    Promising review: "Best feeling and looking sneakers I've ever owned. Hands down, this is a gorgeous style of sneakers. In person, they appear to be realistic leather uppers. Memory foam insole is quite appealing and soft on my feet. I highly recommend these sneakers; they feel and look great in person!" –Happy Camper

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes 5–11)

    8. An angled 2-cup measuring cup so you don't have to bring the cup up to eye level or bend down to see how much you've poured in.

    Promising review: "The idea of not having to hold the cup up in front of your face to look at the measurements is a game-changer. The measurements are accurate and it's incredibly convenient. What more could you possibly want?" –Carol Ann

    Price: $8.99

    9. A hot air brush that dries and styles your hair at the same time. It'll give you bouncy, shiny hair in about a quarter of the time it usually takes you to do your hair.

    pink bedhead hot air brush with purple details

    Promising review: "I would give this a million stars if I could, because I have never loved a product more than I love this hair dryer. I haven't blow dried my hair with a round brush in forever, because it takes forever (my hair is soooo thick) and I've never been good at it considering you've got a brush in one hand and a dryer in the other. This thing could not be easier to use. Your hands feel so free! Lol. It's quick, too. It gets super hot so be careful not to burn yourself (i.e. don't touch the metal part that has the bristles). The plastic tip on the end is thick enough to hold on to as you guide your hair through the brush with your free hand. It seems like this dryer-and-brush-in-one style will make traditional dryers extinct. For the money you cannot beat this thing." –lindsaydrue

    Price: $43.99

    10. A pack of acne patches you can stick onto a pesky blemish before you go to bed, and when you wake up, you'll have a visibly smaller pimple.


    Promising review: "Amazing. I put these on my blemishes and pimples and wear them overnight. They stay on all night and by the next morning, there is a considerable reduction in redness and size. It’s hard to believe something so simple can work so well." –Unknownmother

    Price: $8.99 for a pack of 24 patches

    11. A splatter screen to prevent all that dangerously hot oil from splashing up and making a mess. It also prevents all those odors from escaping the pan and stinking up your entire house.

    Promising review: "Looove this splatter screen. I use primarily for draining purposes, but this works equally well for splatter. I have had various screen from various manufacturers, some last for awhile, but most are so thin and unsupported that the screen begins to separate from the rim, rendering it useless. I was so impressed with the sturdiness of this product that I purchased a second for my daughter. I love the idea of the extra support bracket and the screen itself is of thicker material. As for complaints of rusting in dishwasher, I don't put this IN the dishwasher. It is strictly hand-wash for me, along with my preferred pots and pans." –Sammy

    Price: $19.99

    12. A Rubbermaid power scrubber for cleaning those super tough-to-reach spots, like tile grout and the crevices of your shower.

    Promising review: "My current obsession. This little gem cleans difficult areas: headdboard crevices, especially along the baseboard; up under sink bowls; spigot detail; toilet hardware; oven niches; tile grout; refrigerator nooks and crannies. In short, all of the details that I've long given up on. Now I just buzz this brush up in there and viola! It's even kind of fun, as cleaning goes, because it dislodges dirt in hard-to-reach places instantly." –Marsha

    Price: $19.99

    13. A silicone nonstick baking mat that'll replace all of the parchment paper and foil you've been using over the years. Just gently wipe it clean with soap, and you can reuse this every time you roast veggies or bake cookies.

    Promising review: "So easy to use. How did I live without it? My goodness, I have read about; now I’m a believer. No more parchment lined baking sheets. So much better to roll out pastry, and move to pie tin w/o breaking apart. Love it! I bought three and used all right away." –Wendy

    Price: $8

    14. The highly effective Bio-Oil that works wonders to help fade scars (both old and new ones) and moisturize your skin without clogging your pores. It's especially beneficial to use during the winter when the heater keeps drying you out.

    Promising review: "I always revert back to this oil. My skin loves this product! It was a complete game changer for my skin care regimen. I apply this to my face after my shower at night and wake up with glowing skin. Not only does it fade my acne scars but it gives me a soft smooth glowy complexion. Made my boyfriend use it as well and his skin's looking better than ever! I'll forever use this product." –Anon

    Price: $19.99

    15. A SodaStream sparkling water maker that will save you so much money on all that store-bought seltzer you're currently purchasing by the case. Plus: you'll reduce your carbon footprint by reusing the same bottle to make your sparkling water every time.

    Promising review: "We bought our Soda Stream over four months ago, and we’re loving it! We're a family of four who drinks fizzy water regularly, and used to go through a 12-pack of the canned stuff every week. Four months later, we're still on the first air cartridge and have saved about 200 aluminum cans already. It’s very easy and intuitive to use. I would recommend the system to anyone." –Rachel H.

    Price: $89.99 (available in three colors)

    16. A Ring video doorbell with motion activation, night vision, and the ability to control everything from your phone. You'll feel more secure in your house knowing you have an advanced security camera at your front door.


    Promising review: "I've hesitated on whether we actually needed this or not, but there is an extra comfort in knowing that there's a watchful eye on your property at all times. I have also loved it for the summer when you are out in your yard and wouldn't hear your doorbell. It's connected to our phone so we've been able to catch deliveries and people before they leave. It's worth the investment and easy to set up and use." –drakelathrop12

    Price: $199.99

    17. A produce keeper to prolong the freshness of your fruits and veggies with a carbon filter that traps ethylene gas and an adjustable vent to maintain proper humidity.

    Promising review: "I LOVE it!!! It’s kept my strawberries nice and fresh for almost a week! Usually I feel like I’m in a rush to eat my strawberries as fast as possible or they start to get mushy and rot. With this it was nice just eating them when I wanted and not feeling like I’m wasting my money by throwing them out two days after I bought them. Definitely worth the price if it’s going to make my produce last longer." –Tina

    Price: $12.99

    18. An Apple pencil compatible with iPads that's a game-changer for distance learning, whether you're a college student taking notes or you have a second grader who likes to use it for drawing.


    Promising reviews: "Love it. It works so well with my iPad! It is worth the money if you have an iPad and want to do anything artistic." –Target Customer

    "This has a been a game-changer for virtually teaching. I teach an online college course and this makes everything so much easier. Writing equations is now a breeze." –Geo Cole

    Price: $99.99

    19. A small slow cooker perfect for cooking meals for one or two. With this, you won't have to clean up and store one of those massive slow cookers made for a family.

    Promising review: "This little pot is awesome. No frills, makes just enough food for two to three people. The instructions say not to overfill it, but I’ve made chili in this before and filled it all the way to the top before I went back and read the instructions. It still turned out delicious. I hate eating leftovers, so this is perfect for making a different dish every night. I throw all of my ingredients in in the morning, and I’ll have lunch and dinner without doing much of anything." –KayKay

    Price: $9.99

    20. A mini Theragun massage device to give you sweet relief after a long workout. Use this to massage any achy or sore muscles – it's designed to help you recover faster so you can get back to pumping iron.


    Promising review: "Best massager I have ever used. It is powerful, feels great, and fits in any bag. I use it pre/post work-out and almost every day to help reduce tension in my neck and lower back." –Glove211

    Price: $199.99

    21. A pack of fragrance-free makeup remover cleansing wipes to clear away even the most stubborn waterproof mascara or long-lasting lipstick at the end of the day. They're also gentle enough around the sensitive eye area that they're perfect for contact lens wearers.

    package of neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes

    Promising review: "I found out about two years ago I had a fragrance allergy and these wipes have been a lifesaver! I used the fragranced wipes prior to my allergy developing over the years and these work just as well if not better. As someone who does theater and has a ton of stage makeup to take off every night, these are always with me and literally one wipe does the trick for my entire caked-on face." –Stevie

    Price: $4.99 for a pack of 25 wipes

    22. The all-mighty Ninja air fryer poised to become your favorite kitchen gadget because it can cook practically any food to crispy perfection with very little oil. Get ready to make the best french fries of your life.


    Promising review: "The Ninja air fryer lives up to the hype and then some. The ceramic plate makes this air fryer separate from the competition in a good way - no flaking. I have cooked wings, fries, tots, nachos, you name it and they all come out great. My only regret is not getting one earlier. I will say the food tastes great but if you are cooking for a large group or family gathering allow extra time because at 4 quarts it doesn’t hold a tremendous amount of food, but what it does hold comes out perfectly." –Tigerman

    Price: $129.99

    23. A sweatshirt so soft and comfy, you'll never want to take it off. And at this price, you'll want to buy it in every color. So go ahead — you deserve it!

    Promising review: "Can’t rave about this sweatshirt enough. I love a good oversized crewneck. This sweatshirt is very soft and cozy (I don’t say that about everything) and feels like great, thick quality. I bought the burgundy/black tie dye and the mauve. I’m normally a small in Wild Fable, and bought a small both times. It’s definitely oversized and I love it. I wear them pretty much every day." –Morgan

    Price: $22 (available in sizes XS-2XL and eight colors)

    24. An electric tea kettle that'll boil water in a fraction of the time it takes stove top kettles to do the same job.

    hamilton beach electric tea kettle with a blue light

    Promising review: "I can't believe how much I use this now that I have it. I was on the fence about buying since I can just use the microwave, or boil a pot of water. I'm so mad at myself for doing that for so many years and not ordering this sooner! It's so convenient and I use it probably three times, maybe more a day for my tea/oatmeal, etc and it still works like a charm." –Target Customer

    Price: $34.99

    25. A pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet, because it allows for even heat distribution so your food will come out perfectly every time.

    multiple cast iron skillet on an outdoor grill cooking vegetables

    Promising review: "This is my #1 go-to pan every day. I frequently season it with flaxseed oil, but also have had good luck with Crisco and canola (either, not both). After cooking, this baby rewards me by cleaning up great. I rinse it and wipe dry, then immediately stick it on the stove on high for a few minutes to ensure the water doesn't rust the pan. Re-season, then store. I was never lucky enough to inherit my grandmas' cast iron pans. The Lodge ones give me not only the performance and durability, they give me a very nostalgic feeling, imagining my dear grandmas in the kitchens, long ago. It helps that Lodge is an American company." –soveryblessed

    Price: $24.99

    26. A triple compartment tote bag that is basically as spacious as Mary Poppins' magical bag. Whether you're using it as an overnight bag, diaper bag, or your work purse, this tote bag will hold every single item you need.


    Promising review: "The pictures do not do this bag justice. I only bought it because I saw it in store and doubt I would have bought it online. What the images don't show you is how roomy this bag is and how it is very well-made. I am not a big accessory person. In fact I hate anything that isn't functional which is why I love this. I am able to take my office with me. My laptop, smartphones, cords and adapters all fit one compartment while my entire makeup kit and personal supplies fit in the others. The best part of all of this is how expensive the bag looks and it was just $40." –MrsG

    Price: $39.99 (available in three colors)

    27. A bottle of Dr. Teal's lavender foaming bath to transform bath time into a spa-like experience. The Epsom salt and the lavender essence work together to calm and relax you, meaning you'll end up sleeping like a baby.

    Promising reviews: "This is a lovely relaxing bubble bath. The lavender scent is soft and noticeable but not overwhelming. It provides ample bubbles and leaves your skin feeling soft and lightly lavender scented. It's my favorite! And can't be beat for the price. Plus it's cruelty-free! I love Dr. Teal's!" –Krisgirl

    "This product is great!!! If you have a difficult time falling asleep then this is for you! Fill up the tub with warm water and pour some of the Dr. Teal’s! You’ll feel relaxed and ready to go to sleep. It doesn’t irritate your skin." –Yesenia L14

    Price: $4.89

    28. And lavender-scented detergent from Love Home and Planet that's dermatologist-tested, certified vegan, and leaves your clothes smelling like a field of flowers. It's also ultra-concentrated, so even though the bottle looks small, you'll get 66 loads of laundry out of it!

    a bottle of lavender scented love home and planet detergent

    Promising review: "I can honestly say I never want to use another detergent. This smells HEAVENLY, and I mean that. I'm extremely picky about fragrances but this smells so cozy and calming that I find myself smelling my clothes throughout the day. Like I'm addicted! I don't think this smells like lavender much, more like a floral blend... maybe a little vanilla? Very natural. When I do laundry it fills my home with this amazing clean smell and I get compliments from friends and family. You just need a small squirt and it gets the whole load of laundry very clean. Other natural detergents don't perform as well as this one. I've gone through several bottles of this along with the dryer sheets in the same scent and I really hope they never stop making this product. Can't live without it." –Liv

    Price: $12.99

    29. A tub of SheaMoisture coconut and hibiscus curl-enhancing smoothie that reduces frizz and restores moisture to give you the shiniest, bounciest curls of your life.

    a tub of sheamoisture curl enhancing smoothie

    Promising review: "I live for this brand. I have a curly hair and I have tried using mousse or gel to keep my curls curly and not frizzy, but I never enjoyed using them because it made my hair so stiff and sticky. This product beats all I have tried. It smells really good and gave an extra boost to my curls and it last for a long time." –Jenna

    Price: $9.99

    30. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro with noise-cancelling capabilities and a charging case that delivers almost 24 hours of battery life. Whether you're out for a run or just running errands, you can throw these lil babies in your ears and feel confident they'll stay secure.


    Promising review: "This is probably one of the best pair of wireless headphones ever. The noice cancellation feature is great as well as surround sound and the transparency mode works great. The headphones also have an amazing bass and sound quality. And don’t even get me started on the battery life. It is awesome. I don’t have to worry about them dying. I use them almost all of the day and when they are about to die. You just put them in the case for about 5 to 10 minutes and they are fully charged again. I personally highly recommend these; they are so comfortable as well." –Wonderfull quality

    Price: $234.99 (originally $249.99)

    31. A tube of Gold Bond friction defense that fights against that dreaded chafing on your inner thighs. It's nongreasy, unscented, and it lasts for hours, even through sweaty workouts.

    tube of gold bond friction defense

    Promising review: "This is a miracle product! Honestly. Have you ever been to the beach or on the town and experienced THE DREADED CHUB RUB? If you haven't, lucky you! If you have, I feel for you! Because I've been there. After this summer where I spent 12 hours at the beach and literally tore my inner thighs apart and caused chafing so bad, my skin literally tore and bled because of the friction combined with the ocean water and sand. Then my friend told me about this miracle! It glides on like a deodorant. It's super creamy and white but doesn't really leave and residue. And it allows your thighs to glide like butter against each other so you can frolic at the beach or wherever your heart desires all day to your heart's content without any chafing! In the summer, I seriously am packing this bad boy in my bag wherever I go! As a woman with curvier thighs, I need this! If you have ever experienced this dilemma, seriously pick this up! It has helped so much!" –aliciah65

    Price: $5.29
