    Price: $39.99

    Price: $49.98

    3. A portable, handheld fabric steamer because you want crisp, wrinkle-free clothes at all times, even when you're traveling.

    Promising review: "Bought this to replace a different brand travel steamer I had for several years. This steamer is so much better — lighter weight and heats up amazingly! Love the slick design too!"KarenLP

    Price: $29.99

    4. A Google nest mini so you can have a cute and compact speaker that can also be used to control your home with simple voice commands, like, "Hey Google: turn up the heat, dim the lights and turn on the TV."

    Promising review: "I have these little guys in each bedroom and I love them. They are small and fit nicely on the nightstand or dresser and look good too. With all the features they provide it's nice to be able to walk into the room and say, 'Hey Google' and have it do pretty much whatever I need. My kids and guests enjoy it very much too. Being able to tell it to turn on or off a light is very convenient and saves on electricity. I can even control them while away from home in case I forgot or want to make my home look occupied at night. Highly recommend this product to add to or to start building your smart home system." —Jack

    Price: $24.99 (available in two colors)

    5. A single-serve coffee maker for a simple way to make your favorite brew each morning — just lower the lid, press the button, and voilà! Coffee from either a pod or your own grounds.

    Promising review: "Really enjoy using this machine. The unit is very simple to use and makes some really nice coffee. The included extra fresh grounds basket allows you to custom blend your own favorite coffee to exactly the way you choose. Of course, remember you can use any of the K-Cup type of coffees. The machine is well made and nice-looking on the counter." —Phil

    Price: $59.99

    6. A programmable electric pressure cooker because this useful kitchen appliance pretty much does it all — it's a slow cooker, rice cooker, egg cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, warmer, and more!

    The pressure cooker

    Promising review: "This pressure cooker is a lifesaver for my busy family! No kitchen is complete without it. You can sauté your veggies, brown the meat and then add whatever else to your recipe and slow cook or quickly pressure cook it! My favorite feature is that you can cook from frozen quickly! I always forget to thaw meat so it's a life and pocketbook saver! Highly recommend!" —KaitHikes

    Price: $99.92

    7. A powerful weed killer that promises visible results in just 15 minutes! It works on all types of weeds and grass on hard-scapes, landscape beds, and even those sneaky weeds in your vegetable garden.

    Important note: If you're using it in your vegetable garden or around food, make sure you *only* spray the weeds!

    Promising reviews: "Wish we had started using this product sooner! One application, and the weeds and grass really are gone. Wasted so much money buying RoundUp that had to be applied over and over and still didn't kill the weeds. This product is less expensive, and since you use it only once, you're definitely saving time and money."Retired G'ma

    Price: $18.03

    8. A laundry cart with three removable bag compartments so you can sort your laundry from the moment you throw it in the hamper and hang up delicates to dry. Genius!


    Promising review: "I don't know how I've survived 63 years without this item! I plan on buying this item for Christmas gifts. Something nobody will expect yet very useful!" —MontesMom

    Price: $68.68

    9. A wet-and-forget shower cleaner for those who hate scrubbing their tub (which I'm assuming is everyone?). Just spray this bleach-free formula once a week and rinse away the dirt and grime the next day. Easy peasy!

    Promising review: "I just used Wet and Forget Shower Cleaner for the first time today. We live in a rental that was built in the '80s. That's a long time for water deposits to build up on tile, grout, and shower doors. I know that some reviews urged customers to give the product some time, but I can honestly say that I can see remarkable results already. I have Fibromyalgia, so sensitivity to chemical fumes, fatigue, and muscle pain frequently hinder my ability to clean the way I'd like to. It's always a blessing when I find a great product that does not irritate my respiratory system and is also easy to use. Don't hesitate to buy this product." —Julie

    Price: $17.98

    10. A cordless Shark vacuum mop for the best of both worlds — it sucks up dry debris like a vacuum, but also sprays sticky messes like a mop, and all with a single disposable pad.

    Promising review: "Well let me start by saying this thing is awesome. The idea and concept are great. To be able to vacuum up the mess then mop and dry all in one unit is, well, AWESOME! If you have laminate or vinyl this thing is a breeze, and there is nothing better on my wood floor. It is also great, but the wood floors need a little more elbow grease when washing them." —Jayce

    Price: $99.99

    11. A mildew-resistant grippy shower mat because you definitely don't want to slip and fall in the tub.

    The white plastic mat

    Price: $25.94

    12. A tabletop fire bowl to bring some extra warmth and cozy vibes to your patio. It rests on the umbrella hole, and keeps the propane tank sneakily hidden underneath the table.

    Promising review: "We are very happy with our little tabletop fire bowl! It really is very warm and does a great job. It fits perfectly in the umbrella hole of our table. It was super easy to set up, too!" —RichQ13

    Price: $89

    13. A battery-powered 400-lumen LED headlamp so you never have to work in the dark — whether you're insulating the attic or setting up your camping tent.

    The headlamp

    Promising review: "Throws out bright, white light. Very good for working in dark places, head-lighting, frog gigging, etc. Strap is adjustable for a secure fit. Low/high beam available as well as a green or red mode. I'd recommend this product." —Gundish

    Price: $24.98

    14. A super-sleek motion sensor trash can so you never have to touch the icky garbage can again — not to mention, it looks wayyy too fancy for trash.

    The trash can with a 40L/11 gallon capacity

    Price: $75.99

    15. An Amazon 4K Fire TV Stick that will instantly turn any old TV into a smart TV, letting you stream from all your favorite media apps in high-def.

    the fire stick with Alexa voice remote

    Promising review: "I love it! Alexa voice remote too. Love the on/off and volume on the controller so it only uses one remote for everything." —Gigi

    Price: $34.98 (originally $49.98)

    16. A container of Drano because this cleaner busts through hair and other gunk clogging the drain like an absolute beast. Drano to the rescue!

    Container of Drano Max gel

    A few weeks ago, I found myself standing in a foot of water every time I tried to take a shower. I tried pulling the hair out of the drain, but alas, no luck. Picked up some Drano, poured it down the drain — bam! Draining perfectly within in an hour!

    Promising review: "Drano Max Gel I have found works quite well. While acids or lye pellets may be quicker, they are quite harmful to you and your fixtures if not handled properly. They often only open up a hole just large enough to let the water pass but they do little to actually open the entire pipe line of the gunk that closes them like cholesterol chokes off an artery. This product has opened my drain lines. I even used it as a preemptive strike in my gray water washer line. It has worked great!" —Drake

    Price: $15.48

    17. A wireless garage door keypad since punching in a four-digit code is a whole lot easier than trying to find the secret hidden key when you get locked out — especially if you hid it a little *too* well.

    Promising review: "Purchased this Chamberlain garage door opener when my son locked himself out of the house. Easy to program, easy to operate and easy install. It works great. We use it to enter through the garage. We programmed with a four digit pin but used the 'ENTER' feature (no pin) for CLOSING the garage door. I like the lift up door on this garage opener better than the slide up door on the other model. It also has the lighted numbers for use at night. Very pleased with this purchase. We don't have to worry about lock outs again. We keep the door to the kitchen locked but we also keep a spare key hidden in the garage. Works out great for our family." —MSSet

    Price: $42.99

    18. A portable battery pack so you never have to worry about your phone (or AirPods) very inconveniently dying on you (because it always happens at the *worst* times).

    The charging pack charing an iphone and airpods

    Promising review: "I have owned several different power banks pretty much since the birth of the device including brands like Anker and Mophie (highly recommend units) which perform well, but there was always this issue of the bigger, the bulkier. Well Phillip's I believe solved a major headache for many consumers because the size for a 10,000 mAh they created is as close to perfect in my opinion. I could go on and on about the great design, engineering, durability, etc. But instead I'll just say this: Go buy one of these and give it a good run and you will know exactly what I'm talking about." —Nate

    Price: $31.98

    19. An automatic pet feeder that lets you control when and how much food is dispensed, using an app on your phone. You can even record cute messages that will play during mealtime for when you can't be there with your fur babies yourself.

    Price: $99.99

    20. A 10-compartment bamboo organizer tray so you can clear up that office or bathroom clutter with something super cute and chic.

    The tray organizing makeup and beauty products

    Price: $24.95

    21. A dual-band Wi-Fi extender to make sure you get a strong signal in every little nook and cranny of your house or apartment.

    The wifi extender

    Promising review: "I bought the router not realizing that this dual-band Wi-Fi range extender was part of the package. I am very pleased! This extender was very simple to set up, intuitive little gadget. I like that the signal from the wireless access point transmits to the range extender and the extender transmits at the same Mbps as the access point. This is a very powerful extender! Pairing with your phone, iPad, laptop, is seamless and fast. I recommend." —Teacherosb

    Price: $59.99

    22. A container of fast-acting ice melt because ~winter is coming~ — along with all that super slippery and very dangerous ice.

    The container

    Promising review: "This product worked so well. I bought three bags and two of these containers and liked using the container better because it was an easy way to spread the product and it went fast. The container can be refilled and less pressure on your back not having to carry the bag as your spreading the product. I covered my home, my daughter's place and three neighbors' homes in under three hours. Amazing. I even have one container left for the next freeze. Next morning all sidewalks, driveways, and decks were clear of ice. Everyone was so thankful. Preventing anyone from getting hurt."NC

    Price: $7.97

    23. A smart water-leak sensor so you'll get a handy notification from the app *before* any serious flooding happens. It's worth the investment solely for the peace of mind.

    The sensors shown next to the app displaying "normal"

    Promising review: "We set up two sensors in the basement, just in case. This morning, on our way to my parents who live 20 kilometers away from us, we got a beep, called our neighbor back home to check, and apparently a big amount of water had already pooled in our basement. It saved us from a possible flooding." —Angelica888

    Price: $50.37

    24. A Brita pitcher that filters as you pour, which is super useful if you don't have the time or patience to wait for your water to slowly trickle through the filter while filling it up.

    Promising review: "I love my Brita stream! It filters on the way out instead of the way in. My water still tastes filtered and fresh, but this is so much faster. It’s so much faster than waiting for the water to filter. A must-buy." —Rebeccas332

    Price: $34.98

    25. And lastly, a household tool set because absolutely everyone should have a basic tool kit. I'm convinced it's the most useful thing I own.


    Promising review: "My sons recently married and bought their first homes. First homes, we know they're usually not brand new and perfect, and since I was NOT interested in running to the kids 'homes every time they needed a hammer, wrench, screwdriver, we bought each of them one of these sets as part of their housewarming gift. It has everything someone starting out and who has little or no experience doing their own repairs would need to assemble furniture or make minor repairs. The tools come in their own convenient space-saving case and of course are the classic Craftsman quality." —Lindacarol6

    Price: $99
