    We’re Not Quite Sure Why You Don’t Own These 25 Target Home Essentials Yet

    Still don't own a Squatty Potty... time to change that.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A hexagon wall shelf featuring just a pop of pastel, so you can finally transform all those knickknacks and other random objects in your room into a cute and colorful piece of decor.

    2. An over-the-door shoe storage rack if you're ready to finally stop tripping over all your shoes and reclaim that closet floor space again. This rack boasts an impressive 26 pockets, which, according to reviewers, are large enough even for bulkier shoes like wedges and Birks. Plus, the pockets are all clear mesh, meaning you'll be able to find the pair you're looking for in a heartbeat.

    3. A Google Nest smart thermostat that will ensure your home is always at the perfect temperature (and use its smart settings to adjust when you're away, so you're not heating or cooling an empty house). And if you want to adjust either the heat or AC when you're out of the house so you can come home to a cool/cozy home, all you have to do is hop on the app, which allows you to change the temperature remotely.

    4. A rustic-inspired two-tiered coffee table because it will handily store magazines, remotes, and the like down below while leaving the tabletop free for resting your feet, holding your drinks, or just looking ~aesthetic~ in your living room.

    5. A woven butterfly wall sculpture that's an absolute must for anyone trying to transform their home into a boho paradise. 🦋

    6. A standing wood wine rack because did you know that not storing your wine properly (i.e. vertically) can actually damage the wine and ruin its flavor?! It's true! 😩 Which is exactly why you need a classy storage solution like this, which can hold up to 24 bottles! Not to mention, it also doubles as an elegant bar for mixing drinks.

    7. A 46-piece cordless drill kit with a tape measure, level, screwdrivers, and a whole bunch of drill bits, to finally tackle those DIY projects you've been meaning to get around to.

    8. An air purifier because you want you and your fam to be breathing the cleanest air possible — and this baby, equipped with a SensorPod, DuPont filtration, and UV-C light technology, will filter out all the pollutants, allergens, and other icky germs invisibly floating around your house.

    9. A bamboo bath tray if you're ready to treat yourself to the most luxurious soak in the tub ever. The tray has dedicated spaces to hold your phone, tablet, and even a special notch that securely holds your wine glass. Picture it: relaxing in the bubbles, watching your fave Netflix show, and sipping on wine... yeah, this kind of relaxation is looooong overdue.

    10. A dual-compartment motion-sensor trash can since it's the 21st century, and there's simply no reason you should have to touch dirty, germ-infested lids. And as a bonus, it even comes with little magnetic labels so you can instantly see which side is trash and which is recycling (and don't accidentally throw used tissues and old ramen into the recycling side).

    11. A Kitchen Aid stand mixer for those of you who already love baking and cooking, but are ready to step up your chef game. This is one of those lifelong kitchen appliances truly worth investing in (if you haven't already).

    12. A waterproof and fire-resistant lock box to keep all your super duper important documents, mementos, and other items safe and protected, no matter what. And if it does ever come in contact with a fire, the company will replace it, under their lifetime after-fire guarantee.

    13. A battery-powered Google Nest video doorbell so you can have high-def eyes on your front door at all times. 👀 Once hooked up to your smart home hub, you can set up alerts and view the live feed via the app, no matter where you are. This way, you'll always know if your package delivery is here, or if it's just those pesky neighborhood kids playing ding-dong-ditch again.

    14. A personalized sleep clock designed by experts to help you get a good night's rest every night. There are different lighting options, a sound library, and an adjustable soft-glow reading light, all of which can be controlled via the app. And best of all, it wakes you up with a custom sunrise alarm clock, rather than a jarring beep, which will help keep your cortisol levels (aka stress-causing hormones) from running rampant.

    15. A four-pack of dimmable LED lightbulbs since you'll be amazed how much of a difference it makes when you switch over to super bright, energy-efficient bulbs. You'll suddenly start saving money on electricity costs *and* finally be able to tell if that shirt you grabbed is actually black or navy blue.

    16. A Squatty Potty because this will revolutionize the way you go number two... especially if you sometimes struggle to get things going. Trust me, if you don't already have this, you NEED it.

    17. A soft and plush weighted blanket that'll feel like a big, comforting, anxiety-reducing hug whenever you bury yourself under it. 🥰 Plus, the removable cover means that cleaning it is also a no-stress affair.

    18. A soft and supportive sherpa lounge pillow so you can comfortably relax on your bed or sofa while you read, watch TV, or work from home. I'll take this over my stiff desk chair any day, thank you very much!

    19. A galaxy light projector so you can take a magical journey into space, all without ever leaving your living room.

    20. A garlic press because there's really no reason you have to deal with the hassle of mincing garlic by hand. Simply peel the cloves, pop them in, squeeze, and presto! If you're a garlic-loving fiend like me, it's high time you get yourself one of these babies.

    21. A decorative brass mirror that looks like a bright, shining sun and will glow even more beautifully with your reflection in it, hehe — in other words, you'll instantly be in a better mood whenever you take a quick peek in the mirror.

    22. A citronella candle to keep those pesky bugs from bothering you during all your summer patio hangs. Unlike most generic bug-repellent candles, this one's actually cute, with a striped ceramic holder — who wouldn't want adorable outdoor decor like this that's also totally functional?

    23. A three-pack of reusable beeswax wraps because they are just as effective as plastic wrap, but way more environmentally friendly. I use these for all sorts of things in my house and recommend them to all my friends who don't already have them.

    The small, medium and large beeswax wraps covering different foods: apple, granola bar and cheese block

    24. A slim bidet attachment with adjustable water pressure and dual nozzle spray that mounts on any toilet, so you can *finally* jump on the TP-free clean-tush bandwagon. Everyone's been raving about them, and now it's finally time for you to see what it's all about.

    25. A lid organizer with five adjustable dividers, because life gets a whole lot easier when you don't have to spend five minutes digging around the cabinet trying to find the right lid. I love a good, easy organization hack!
