    1. A mini waffle maker that might actually get you back in the swing of sit-down breakfasts before work.

    Promising review: "Definitely one of the best purchases I have made on Amazon so far. Just as described, it is a mini waffle maker. The 'mini' part is no joke; the whole thing is small enough to lift in one hand. Because of its size, it works quicker than a normal-sized one, so even though you can only make one small waffle at a time, each waffle should be done in about a minute or two. The interior is also nonstick so it is really easy to clean, which was a huge bonus for me. On top of that, it comes with a little instruction pamphlet that tells you how to use it and has recipe ideas!" —Cristal M.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in eight colors).

    2. A pair of cozy lumberjack socks to keep your feet warm as you zombie-walk to the bathroom.

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 70+ colors).

    3. A fog-resistant mirror so you can proceed with your post-shower grooming without waiting for your bathroom to air out.

    Promising review: "My shower wall is extremely difficult to get things to stick to it. I have had this for weeks and it has yet to fall off." —Beckie Thurmond

    Get it from Amazon for $12.48 (available in white, gray, and blue).

    4. A microfiber hair wrap that'll dry your hair in record speed — and best of all, won't be a total drag to keep from unraveling from your head.

    Promising review: "I have wavy hair that needs product or it gets frizzy. When I took this off my head after my shower, my hair was ALMOST DRY and I had all these well-defined curls! I couldn't believe it. And the large button and wide loop make it easy to put on, unlike the others with the small button and tight loop that were so frustrating — they went right into the donation pile. Don't hesitate, this is worth the money!" —Amazon Customer

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

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

    Promising review: "I was so nervous about ordering this. I have a huge bathtub and I was worried it wouldn't fit — it does. It's incredibly sturdy and I can safely put my MacBook Air 13" on it and enjoy my bath. The wineglass holder is wonderful and the cellphone holder is perfect. It expands and shortens nicely and is very user-friendly. I highly recommend this tray." —Jesse

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    6. A diatomite bath mat (that's a fine-grained sedimentary rock-based mat, for the uninitiated) that immediately absorbs moisture from your feet.

    And check out our full review here.

    7. A classic, non-ticking(!) bedside alarm clock you won't want to toss out the window.

    Promising review: "I love this alarm clock. Exactly what I wanted. Silent, no lights. Peaceful rest and you can wake up on time. You can also use the light fixture as a flashlight when you're in bed and you are looking for something. The alarm is great. It's not too jarring or annoying. Very lightweight. Looks nice." —Professional Mo

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in black and white).

    8. A monthly subscription to Quip, the beautiful and award-winning electric toothbrush with a two-minute timer to effectively remove plaque and prevent gingivitis.,

    You’ll receive an electric toothbrush set (including the Quip brush, travel cover mount, a large toothpaste, and a travel-sized toothpaste). For $10 every three months, you’ll be sent a new brush head, AAA battery, and two different-sized toothpastes.

    Get it from Quip starting at $25 (available in five colors).

    It's also our BuzzFeed Reviews pick for the best affordable electric toothbrush!

    9. Or, an activated Japanese 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.

    Get it from NeedSupply for $8.

    10. An infusion pitcher that'll encourage you to hydrate with your favorite fresh fruit, veggies, herbs, or spices.

    The dishwasher-safe, BPA-free 2.25-quart pitcher is odor-, taste-, and stain-resistant and features a leak-proof lid.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's, for $19.99 (and get an extra 30% off with promo code EVENT at checkout).

    11. And a towel warmer to make you feel like you're at a spa every time you shower (except you're actually in your apartment and your roommate is threatening to kick down the bathroom door if you don't get out in the next five mins).

    Promising review: "Love putting my clothes in on cold days when getting ready for work. Great for towels fresh out of the shower and then jammies while you get ready." —Piglet

    Get it from Amazon for $135.95.

    12. A Bluetooth speaker you can bring in the shower with you and hear very well.

    Promising review: "The sound from this little guy is amazing. I was expecting good-quality sound, as UE (owned by Logitech) makes great products. I was surprised, though, at how much you notice the lower tones and bass from this thing. It has a full sound and is multidirectional, so you get good coverage wherever you are standing in relation to the speaker. It also gets quite loud, so if you enjoy that, you won't miss anything here. It feels robust and durable. The charging cable that comes with it is flat, so it folds really nice and small for travel without tangling. All of the buttons are tactile, but also low profile, which is excellent. Overall, I am 100% happy with this purchase. You really cannot go wrong buying this. Bonuses — it is waterproof, floats in water, and can be paired with another Wonderboom for even bigger sound at parties without the need for any app or phone software." —Greg L.

    Get it from Amazon for $61.41+ (available in 11 colors).

    13. Sudden, an instant coffee subscription that will SOAR above the low bar you have set for all instant coffee products on the market.

    Most instant coffees are made from leftover batches of beans; Sudden Coffee is not most instant coffee. The subscription service boasts a freeze-dried recipe of perfectly ripe ground and brewed beans. It also won't overwhelm your taste buds with bitterness; the result is clean and fruity with low acidity. Each "tube" you receive by mail contains 4.5 grams of coffee — just add water and, voilà, you may never have to wait on that hellish coffee line again.

    Get an 8-cup subscription from Sudden Coffee for $19/month or a one-time purchase (before committing to the subscription) for $28.

    14. Or, an at-home cold-brew maker if not even even the chilly fall temps can keep you from enjoying your favorite bev.

    Promising review: "The coffee is tasty and fresh. The jar is constructed out of quality material. And it's so fun having it in my fridge in keg form. I'm saving tons of money not going to the coffee shop all the time. I LOVE IT. So much that I ordered a second one for a gift as a friend. The second one arrived broken but Willow & Everett were so quick to send a replacement, I couldn't believe it!" —Shelby Props

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    15. A personal blender with a take-along bottle so you can be the most envied person on your morning subway commute to work.

    Promising review: "I very much enjoy this personal blender! I use it in the morning to make a smoothie to drink on my commute so I'm not starving by lunchtime." —ag.fabozzi

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    16. A tube-wringer, because squeezing out that last tiny bit of toothpaste can be incredibly rewarding, wow!

    Promising review: "These work great. They keep even a full tube upright so the bathroom counter looks tidier. The key twists the empty section of the tube easily so every bit of the toothpaste is used with no fuss. Have one for my husband and one for each of the kids." —Chelley Patterson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    17. A splurge-worthy bar of exfoliating peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary soap even a millennial will look forward to using in the shower.

    Promising review: "This soap is great smelling, lightly exfoliating and very little goes a long way. I have gotten those dreaded skin lumps and bumps that they say come with age and this soap is making it all better-lightly sanding them off over time. My skin is looking better and that is the whole point! I will order more, and got one for my sister too." —Lisa C

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    18. A commuter mug that delivers on its promise to keep your bev hot (or cold) all day long.

    Promising review: "This thing can keep your coffee hot all day long. The Contigo will keep a full mug of coffee hot for about six hours. About four hours if you only fill it halfway or drink half. I put coffee from my French press into this little gem at 8 a.m. and drank from it all day and that evening at 6 p.m., 10 hours later, the last drink was drinking temperature, not just lukewarm. Wow, I was impressed." —Guyton

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three sizes and in 12 colors).

    19. A super-soft organic towel you'll look forward to using while you wash up.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's, for $16+ (available as a bath, hand, or wash towel and in six colors; get an extra 30% off with promo code EVENT at checkout).

    20. A bedhead cap for those days you wake up an hour too late (with Kramer hair) and don't have the time to take a shower before sprinting out the door.

    Promising review: "I love it! :) I'm a girl with very short hair, and this invention is a lifesaver. Before Morninghead, I would either do the wet washcloth thing and deal with water running down everywhere, or use the handheld in the shower and forget to turn it off, causing my husband to yelp loudly when he turns on the shower in the evening and the handheld gets him in the face. ;) In my opinion, the simple concept of putting a highly absorbent material inside a waterproof cap is brilliant!" —Compumom

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    21. A portable cup holder with suction, so you can be fully caffeinated by the time you step out of the shower.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    22. A honeycomb-style drawer organizer, because half the battle of every morning is finding your other sock.

    The organizer is not only super easy to assemble (just snap the pieces together) but it's also easily customizable (the strips can be trimmed to fit just about any space).

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    23. A wake-up light that simulates a sunrise, so you wake up gradually and peacefully instead of in a jarring fashion.

    Promising review: "I got this alarm clock because currently I'm sleeping in a basement room with no windows (I promise it's not as depressing as it sounds) and was having a rough time waking up in the morning without the sun to give me an extra nudge toward consciousness. I was also dealing with some noisy upstairs neighbors and figured having a light-based alarm would allow me to sleep with earplugs and still get up on time, though I was nervous that I might not respond to the light. Turns out I'm super light sensitive, and this works great as a wake-up device. Even my dog (who also shares my windowless basement room) has learned what the light means." —Ladybug

    Get it from Amazon for $114.99 or Jet for $104.99.

    24. A durable and simple toothbrush holder with three compartments to tidy up your current grooming situation.

    Promising review: "These are so awesome! I am always looking for new ways to organize and save space in my tiny bathroom, and these are a great option. I actually decided to buy two holders, which fit on the sink ledge next to each other, and filled some of the smaller circles with my morning staples: cover-up, a few eyeliners, eyebrow brush, etc. Looks great and saves time — what more could you want?" —abbey

    Get it from Amazon for $10.14.

    25. A deceptively tiny space heater that gets the job done, so removing the covers from your body and facing the world will become far less brutal during the winter months.

    Promising review: "Great minimalist design and simple, easy-to-use features. I use this small and compact heater in a 300-square-foot bedroom and it quickly and easily heats up the room. I have no doubt that it would be able to at least be used for a room double the size." —Your Public Name

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in black and white).

    26. A toothbrush holder that attaches to your mirror, because you're gagging at the thought of where your orphan brushes have been.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $16 or Amazon for $22.48 (available in black and white).

    27. A shower curtain you can count on to actually prevent mold and mildew from developing.

    Promising review: "We've tried three other non-plastic liners in our showers, all of which let water through, got moldy, or both. This is the first fabric-type liner that keeps the outer curtain dry (not even tiny mist marks on the tub edge)." —J.M. Crawford

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. An arm-gripping sofa table, so you don't have to leave your couch for your nutritious breakfast of two donuts.

    Promising review: "Excellent to hold your drink while you watch TV, but much less obtrusive and much more attractive than similar items. We immediately bought another one as a gift, we liked this one so much. Highly recommended, excellent workmanship." —Margot

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $150.

    29. A pH shower filter that'll remove any lingering rust from old pipes — as well as fluoride and bacteria — so you can feel confident you are actually getting cleaner in the shower.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.97.

    30. And a mirror that will make you look like someone who is having a great time being awake.

    Get it from Areaware for $64.
