    1. A house-shaped tissue box that'snot a joke.


    Promising review: "I first spotted this at a swanky modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box — it practically vanishes! It looks so cute with the tissue-y 'billow' of smoke, and is functional too. Every modern minimalist's dream." —nycgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $5.

    2. An over-the-door towel rack that'll give you some much-needed storage space without being an eyesore.


    Promising review: "We needed a new towel rack to go over our door and this works perfecty. It does not interfere with our door closing in any way. This item arrived from Amazon when I was told it would arrive and was so easy to put together. There were some reviews that found this item difficult to assemble. There are six small screws and three poles. You just slide the poles into the holders at both ends and carefully put the small screws and tighten them. It took about five minutes if that to assemble and was very easy and it looks really nice as well. I found this to be very sturdy as well. The towel bar does the job it was intended for and you can easily slide towels on and off and hang clothes, wash clothes, etc. There are two hooks at the bottom as well." —Keith F.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.07 (available in nickel and bronze).

    3. A two-tiered shelf organizer that won't cut any corners in the looks department.


    Promising review: "This is perfect for my bathroom counter to make more space. It was cluttered before with stuff I use daily and don't like the hassle of constantly removing and replacing from drawers. Having it all stacked neatly to the corner is much more tidy and convenient. Assembly was easy. Be sure to measure the space you want to put it to make sure it fits." —JDH

    Get it from Amazon for $23.20.

    4. A pair of plates with built-in slots to hold your stemware, so you don't have to worry about losing your champagne glass at the next function.


    Get it from Food52 for $42+ (for a pair; available in transparent, white, and onyx).

    5. An acrylic Squatty Potty to get your colon and artistic sensibility aligned.


    Promising review: "This thing is SLEEK! I bought this for my new home's main floor guest bath. We wanted to provide guests with the convenience of the Squatty Potty without the eyesore of the white 7" one. I feel like if Kim and Kanye had a Squatty Potty, it would be this one." —Durga D

    Get it from Amazon for $82.57.

    Find the acrylic a little too hip for your pooping needs? Check out the original Squatty Potty for $24.99.

    6. A set of silicone soap dishes with a waterfall design so that your bar never sits in a puddle of water — and, instead, the water flows out into the drain.


    Promising review: "Something simple that just works. I love these and I have them on my sink and bathtub. l love non-toxic handmade bars of soap, and these keep them from melting. The silicon material keeps the soap saver from sliding, and keeps the soap bar, even when wet, anchored to the saver. The water drips down and away from the soap." —David

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (for three).

    7. A small-but-mighty budget bluetooth speaker that you'll probably just want to leave in the shower.


    Promising review: "For a speaker that is small in size, this thing is big on sound. We use it in the shower and it sounds great in there. I have only charged it once and the battery has been better than expected." —Ryan Burdick

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    8. A natural toothpaste and tube roller that'll bait you with some pastel and Helvetica — and keep you coming back for the effective plaque-removing properties.


    Promising review: "I love that the metal tube is recyclable. I give this as a gift. It feels fancy. It tastes mildly minty and isn't foamy. It cleans my teeth better than any other toothpaste I've tried, natural or otherwise." —

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    9. A self-watering hanging planter for both indoor and outdoor use. I'm telling you: You can't mess it up this time — not with this planter.


    Promising review: "Works great — no more overwatering my plant. Easy-to-see floating red stick indicating water level. Looks nice too. Well made using quality materials. I would definitely buy it again. Hung it in the bath area and looks really nice." —Dawn

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

    10. A hanging cotton canvas laundry bag you actually won't mind keeping out.


    Promising review: "This hanging cotton canvas bag is a definite lifesaver for my bathroom floor. Instead of having to pick up laundry and collect it before going to the wash, we now can strip down before a shower and basketball-throw our clothing into the hamper. We have an older top-loading washer and this bag holds one full load of wash, which is great for saving space since we no longer need to keep a basket out for collection. This bag has been completely filled with jeans, and the metal frame and hook have not bent or warped from the weight, so it will hold up to heavy laundry." —Z

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in black and white).

    11. A humidifier that requires no electricity — just fill it up with water, plop it on top of your radiator, and voila: air-improving vapor.

    MoMA Design Store

    Get it from the MoMa Design Store for $50.

    12. A bamboo bathtub caddy tray you can rest a book or coffee mug (or, lol, your phone) on while you bathe.


    Promising review: "This caddy is very cute and sturdy. It is perfect for a glass of wine and a book. The design is brilliant and can adjust to any tub size.

    I highly suggest purchasing this if you are looking for a GREAT, useful bathroom accessory." —LuAnn Chandler

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    13. And a bamboo bath mat that looks chic, but more importantly: It's totally mold-resistant.


    Promising review: "I bought this bathmat because we're now sharing the bathroom with my cat, and she tracks litter on the floor. I figured this would be cleaner and easier to maintain than a cloth bathmat and it 100% is. I sweep the bathroom out every day, and all I have to do is tilt this mat up, sweep underneath it, and I'm done. To clean it, I just wipe it down with a damp sponge with a little bit of bathroom cleaner sprayed on it. If you wanted to do a deep clean you could easily rinse it off in the shower or hose it down. I dry off as much as possible in the shower before I step out onto the mat, including dabbing my feet dry, and there's not a ton of water pooling. The wood is warmer to step out onto than a bare tile floor. The plastic grips definitely make it slip-free and level. The design looks great. This is a good product for the value." —Laura Edwins

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

    14. A snazzy personal space heater destined to be your best bud this winter.


    Promising review: "These little heaters have been amazing. They throw off a big amount of heat, but take up very little space and are very quiet. I have had 2 of them for over 3 years and have never had an issue with either of them. Well, one issue, my wife keeps stealing them from my office! Great little units, highly recommend." —PMO

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    15. A geometric bookend you'll want to decorate with dried flowers and photos.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    And check out 30 other amazing bookends you'll want to add to your bookshelf immediately.

    16. A USB-powered lamp that'll switch on and off with a quick nudge of its magnetic sphere.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "This lamp is amazing! It's so beautiful, and quite a conversation piece. The wood is smooth and feels well made. The activating switch below is magnetized to the base until you need it, then with a gentle lift it is attracted to the ball above and — click, the light comes on. The switch is activated by tension on the lower string. Honestly, for such an interesting lamp I think it was a great value, and look forward to many years of lighted enjoyment." —Sleepless Shelley

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $85.

    17. A cubist floating shelf to display all the odds and ends you have accumulated over the years.


    Promising review: "Really lovely! My bed is all the way up against the wall, and I wanted a very low-profile shelf to put a book and my glasses on so I don't have to hand them over to my husband every time I want to turn in. Works absolutely perfectly for this. Incredibly easy to install — I did it myself with just a screwdriver! Really excellent product." —JLH in NYC

    Get it from Amazon for $40+ (available in small and large and in black and white).

    18. A stackable zigzag trivet that can be used as a soap dish, plant stand, or a coaster for your drippy coffee.

    Fredericks and Mae

    Get it from Fredericks and Mae for $20.

    19. A beautiful bamboo cutting board with seven color-coded mats you'll be relieved to discover is very easy clean.


    Promising review: "Omg this thing is so cool! My dad is envious and wants one of his own. It's so convenient to switch to a clean cutting surface that's right there for you. It takes up so much less room. The surfaces are big enough without being awkward and bulky to wash in the sink. And it's pretty. V pretty. —DJ Kitten

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    20. A minimalist whistling tea kettle because boiling water in a big old pan just isn't the same.


    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $39.99.

    21. An oil and vinegar cruet that'll save you space and give you a nice centerpiece.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "Fun gift for a foodie and saves space!" —Char

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $20.

    22. A flip-up hook unit, so you never have to look at an unused hook.


    Promising review: "Easy to install and works great. I use it in the bedroom to hang trousers and sweats, and it gave me more floor space." —Doug Harper

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available with three, five, or eight hooks, and in driftwood, walnut, and white).

    23. The sexiest garbage can that you ever did see.


    Promising review: "I never imagined I would spend so much for a trash can — in fact, I had buyer's remorse as soon as I hit the one-click button. Think about it, though: I spend my life in a 1 bed/1 bath with room for only one trash can. It's something I see several times a day. I'd rather see this than its predecessor, a $10 Rubbermaid that somehow always had food dribbling from the edges and had to be hosed out weekly. I love that the bag storage system hides the edges of the garbage bag from view. I have been told that it's also good at stifling smells. I have no sense of smell, but I hope so. My Rubbermaid certainly didn't." —A reader

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    24. A sculptural watering can because, idk, maybe your plants can appreciate good art too.


    Get it from Amazon for $51.

    25. A pair of aerating wineglasses that aren't just a gimmick — they'll actually give your cheap wine a big boost.


    Promising review: "We tested them by comparing the wine before and after using the glass and there WAS a difference in the quality of the taste. Most items are mostly hype but this one seems to be real. Besides, it's cute to watch it flow." —KHofferMD

    Get a pair from Amazon for $50.

    26. A fire escape shelving unit for a perfect homage to New York living while you display your succulents.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "We love this fire escape shelf! We have it on a wall in our living room and put small succulents and tchotchkes on it from our travels. It's adorable, well made, and easy to mount on a wall." —Alana & Matt

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $99.

    27. A minimalist floating shelf to give your phone the proper showcase it deserves.


    Promising review: "I used the hardware provided and was pleased with how much it can withstand. I was a bit skeptical as to how many items it could hold due to the small magnetic strip so I put it to the test and grabbed everything magnetic in my immediate vicinity. I have bulky keychains with remote start/LCD screens for vehicles, USBs, medical scissors, measuring tape, wallet, glasses, phone...and they all held. As to why you would hang that amount of stuff on a minimalist shelf? I don't know, but it definitely shows how much it can easily hold if installed correctly." —Clifford

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in six wood shades).

    28. A metallic-gold plated stainless steel pyramid that has a different grating function on every side.


    Promising review: "I like unusual/decorative kitchen accessories that look good on the counter so I can leave them out in easy reach and don't have to go digging for them. In addition to being decorative, they have to work great too. This shredder offers the best of both worlds. We used it today to make chile verde and it worked great. Be careful when you're taking it out of the package as it's a LOT sharper than I thought it would be. With that being said, the shredder is very easy to handle without splitting open your fingers thanks to the innovative design. Highly recommend whether you want to keep it on the counters or in the cabinets but definitely wash by hand to retain the finish." —Phoenix

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    29. A freestanding toilet paper holder for a classy way to store your supply without making a big display of it.


    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. Cute and simple and functional. In case you were wondering, the fabric snaps on and off, so it can be machine-washed if you (eww) need to wash it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.67.

    30. A wood knife block you'll feel instantly drawn (or magnetized) to.


    Get it from Food52 for $140 (available in semi-circle, vertical, or leaning design and in white or natural wood).

    31. An activated charcoal toothbrush — great for your gums and Instagram grid.


    The bristles on this toothbrush are blended with Japanese binchotan charcoal, a centuries-old deodorizer that has been proven to fight off plaque and impurities. The activated charcoal gives off negative ions, which prevents bacteria from building up on your brush.

    Promising review: "The only toothbrush that gets all the filthy gunk off my teeth. As firm as you would want to go with a toothbrush. The finger indent on the handle is nice, and the small size makes the toothbrush easy to control." —Devon Scheibert

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    32. A splurgeworthy Dyson desk fan that'll blow you away with its cooling abilities.


    Promising review: "For such a little fan, this guy's epic! The movable head means you can focus the air stream (which is particularly good if you need the focus on you while you sleep). I'm currently without AC in my place, but last night I was able to sleep pretty soundly with this fan — so that's a win in my book!" —s. ebrahim

    Get it from Amazon for $249.99+ (available in blue, white/silver and black/nickel).
