    1. 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 $44 (for a pair; available in transparent, white, and onyx).

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

    Promising review: "This has been an instant solution to finding a bit more counter space for those small things we have to leave out." โ€”Dewey Decimal Fan

    Get it from Amazon for $23.19.

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

    Promising review: "Works great โ€” 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." โ€”Dawn

    Get it from Amazon for $23 (available in black, lime, grey, burgundy, and white).

    4. A ceramic self-draining soap dish to maximize the lifespan of your precious bar soap.

    Promising review: "Color me impressed! I love to buy handcrafted bar soaps but often get little use out of them because they dissolve. I have tried several soap dishes and have found them all to be ineffective or a pain to clean. This beautiful, artisan-made dish is wonderfully designed, my soap stays dry and usable, and thus far the dish itself requires no cleaning. I can't wait to recommend them. Great find!" โ€”Elle

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $24.

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

    Get it from the MoMa Design Store for $50.

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

    Promising review: "Awesome product. Because it's clear, it doesn't change the look of your bathroom. And yes, the Squatty Potty really does work well for its intended purpose. This acrylic version is a quality product that seems like it will last a long time." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    Or if you're just here for functionality, get the original Squatty Potty from Amazon for $19.99.

    7. 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." โ€”Laura Edwins

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

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

    Promising review: "I have a Scandinavian/midcentury home, and I wanted a little heater that had a retro sleekness to it. It actually matches my cream Marshall speaker to a tee, puts out a TON of heat, and is quiet as can be. Perfect for the guest room, or cold mornings in the kitchen. Most space heaters are hideous, this one is downright attractive." โ€”M

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    9. A magnetic beechwood utility board that includes pegs and hooks as well as a shelf for your wallet.

    Get it from West Elm for $75 (available in beech and black).

    10. A stackable bookend for a design-y way to keep your book collection looking slick.

    Get it from Tortuga for $28+ (available in small, medium, and large and in three colors).

    Or find a similar style from Amazon for $14.67.

    11. A stainless steel toilet brush that doesn't cost an ex-orb-itant amount.

    Promising review: "The brush is easy to remove and replace in the holder and is firm enough to do a good job cleaning. The container completely covers the brush when it's stored so it gives it a clean look in the bathroom." โ€”Cristian

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    12. A "host key" โ€” or combination wine key and bottle opener โ€” so you're always prepared for hosting duties.

    Get it from W&P Design for $17.

    13. A USB-powered lamp that switches on and off with a quick nudge of its magnetic sphere.

    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 โ€” 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." โ€”Sleepless Shelley

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $85.

    14. 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 โ€” I did it myself with just a screwdriver! Really excellent product." โ€”JLH in NYC

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

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

    Get it from Fredericks and Mae for $20.

    16. 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. โ€”DJ Kitten

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    17. 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.

    18. 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!" โ€”Char

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $19.95.

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

    Promising review: "It is very sturdy and well-made, it doesn't feel cheap at all. I really like the fact that you can hide the hooks when not in use for a cleaner look. So far, I've put some very heavy coats on it and the hooks have held pretty well. The installation was not hard at all, as only a drill, driver, and a leveler was needed." โ€”The Final Verdict

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available with three, five, or eight hooks and in driftwood, walnut, and white).

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

    Promising review: "I never imagined I would spend so much for a trash can โ€” 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." โ€”A reader

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

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

    Get it from Amazon for $51.

    22. A pair of aerating wineglasses that aren't just a gimmick โ€” 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." โ€”KHofferMD

    Get a pair from Amazon for $50.

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

    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." โ€”Alana & Matt

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $99.

    24. A geometric display system that not only looks great, but fits a whole lot of dang things.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.69.

    25. A brass plant mister so you finally have a way to keep your delicate greenery and flowers healthy.

    Promising review: "Really beautiful little mister. The pump and spout are metal, which is great, since most misters on the market have cheap plastic parts that are made to look like metal. I love this ... it mists just the right amount." โ€”Re

    Get it from Terrain for $14.

    26. 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." โ€”Clifford

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

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

    Get it from W&P Design for $25.

    28. 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." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.67.

    29. A nine-piece nesting bowl set that honestly looks so nice while nesting that you might consider just leaving it there on your countertop do its thing.

    The set includes: a 4.8 qt (10.5-inch) large mixing bowl, 3.2 qt (9-inch) colander, 1.75 qt (7.5-inch) steel sieve strainer, 0.5 qt (6-inch) small mixing bowl with measurements, 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/4 cup measuring cups and 1 tablespoon.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that it all nests together. Takes up so much less room than others. I like that the biggest bowl has has a rubber rim all the way around the bottom of the bowl so that it does not slip around on the counter when using it." โ€”S.K.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    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 โ€” 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.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50 or CB2 for $8.

    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 โ€” so that's a win in my book!" โ€”s. ebrahim

    Get it from Amazon for $189.98+ (available in white/silver and black/nickel).

    33. And a leather and walnut fly swatter, because hear me out: What could be more posh than destroying flies with fine hardwood?

    Get it from Food52 for $52.
