1. A DIY miniature kit if your takeaway from watching Hereditary this summer was that Toni Collette makes very good art and you want to be just like her.

amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This was my first time building a miniature. My 10-year-old loves craft projects and these rooms looked cute. They also looked complicated and time-consuming. I wasn't sure if this was a good idea but decided to give it a try anyway. I purchased both the greenhouse and the art studio. My daughter and I spent one to two hours a day over a couple of weeks working on these together. I built the greenhouse while she built the art studio. We had a blast! They were incredibly fun and actually easy to build. The instructions were superb. My husband looked at the finished rooms and was very impressed. He thought they looked great. I have since purchased the library and sewing room. We haven't had a chance to start on these yet but are looking forward to it." —Ginger

Price: $35.99 (available in nine styles)

2. A casual vintage dress that looks great on everyone and is versatile enough to wear to a party or your 9-to-5.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This dress is comfortable, has good coverage, and is a GREAT breastfeeding dress. Pulls down very easily, and doesn't get stretched out. I also like that I can wear it casually or use it to dress up a little. Very versatile. I'm 5'10," weigh 190 lbs, and bought a large. Last thing: I love the length; it falls just above the knee on me." —C Jones

Price: $6.80+ (available in sizes S-2XL and in 24 colors/patterns)

3. A dishwasher magnet to clear up any confusion between you and your roommate about the status of the dishes (and help you return to a less hostile living situation).

Promising review: "My boyfriend and I always had a hard time trying to remember if our dishes were washed or if we had forgotten to run the dishwasher, so I decided to buy something that we could fasten onto our dishwasher that would help us remember to wash or put away the dishes. I've been using it for the last few months and the magnet has never fallen off of it from the dishwasher being too hot or anything. It holds really well to the door of the dishwasher and I couldn't be more pleased with it." —BrookePrice: $2.49

4. Or, a very efficient dish squeegee if you want to live in a world where "dirty" isn't even a word that exists to describe a dish.

Promising review: "Love this! Works great for scraping everything from oatmeal off a pot to caked-on casserole dishes." —Chris Price: $4.99

5. A doctor-approved gel heel insert to alleviate your feet of plantar fasciitis. (That's heel inflammation, as you know it best, or worst.)

amazon.com

Promising review: "OMG, the best. I had the WORST plantar fasciitis. Pain level eight for two months! Nothing, nothing worked and I tried everything! This was the only orthotic that worked. I bought three more pairs. I tried four companies. Even expensive insoles did not work as well as this. Don't assume since the price is great on this that it won't work. I did not like the hard arches in some other brands — just made it worse. Plus, I had to wear night splints, etc. Again, a lifesaver and I am super picky." —S. Byers

Price: $6.95 per pair

6. A set of bedsheet fasteners if you're like, "What if there were suspenders but...for your bed" — yep, that already exists, and will save you from the hell that is an on-the-go sheet.

amazon.com

Promising review: "My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. We switched to those awesome deep pocketed sheets from Target a few years ago which helped but he even manages to get those to slide up each night. Bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing!" —birdchic1

Price: $8.99 for a four-pack

7. A headlight lens restorer kit, because you don't have hundreds of dollars lying around to cover the cost of new headlights and are having visibility issues.

Promising review: "This product worked very well to restore my 2004 Pontiac Grand Am's headlights! The headlights were very scratched (from me trying to restore them with 1000-5000 grit wet/dry sandpaper, which was not good because the lubricants and creams are necessary and without them you risk ruining your headlights), had overspray body paint on them, were slightly yellowed, hazed, and made my nighttime driving a nightmare because of the messed-up lenses. And they just looked awful as you could not see in them at all. It was obviously a safety hazard, so I decided to try out this product based on all of the great reviews that it has. I did not want to spend $50-$100 for new headlight assemblies unless if it was absolutely necessary. I followed the directions, and they were straightforward. All the parts of the kit were present and well labeled. It took me about half hour to do both lights and they look awesome!" —Pontiac||901 Reviews Price: $7.29

8. Funk Away spray, which, like its name suggests, gets rid of "funky" odors on clothes and gear and replaces it with a much less offensive scent.

Promising review: "I purchased this for both my sons' football equipment. Their equipment smelt horrible and every year I'd tried numerous ways to get rid of the bad body odor. Nothing ever worked — until this weekend when I received my Funk Away. I immediately sprayed their cleats and after a few minutes I test-smelled them and they had already started to smell better. I added another dosing and the funky smell was gone completely. It gives off a clean, fresh smell that reminds me of Downy. I have already let other football moms know about this spray and highly recommend it for sport equipment." —Amazon Customer Price: $9.99

9. A professional nail trimmer that'll ensure a minimally stressful experience for you and your pet.

Promising review: "I purchased these stainless steel pet nail trimmers in the small-medium size. It has locking blades and comfortable, rubber-coated handles. One of the features that I particularly like on this set of nail trimmers is that it has a safety to help prevent injury to your pet's claws. The blades are extremely sharp and the reverse is spring-loaded so that once you release the locking mechanism (which is very sturdy), the blades easily come open and are ready for use. This worked nicely for my cat, and I can see it working well for both small and medium-sized dogs as well. I would definitely recommend them if you're looking for a stainless steel nail trimmer for your pet!" —K. LeCronePrice: $8.99+ (available in small-medium and large)

10. A toothpaste squeezer and stand for anyone super committed to never letting a single drop of toothpaste go to waste in their lifetime.

Promising review: "I bought this and I do not regret it. It is very easy to use, and the toothpaste stands so it doesn't take up so much room on my sink. When the key is turning, it is not hard on your hands. This is definitely a very handy gadget. I would recommend this product to all my friends." —M.J.Price: $7.69 (for a two-pack)

11. A pleated polka dot dress that'll never go out of style — and more importantly, that has pockets.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love how cute this dress is, the material is soft and comfy and the length is super nice! And yes, it has pockets! You will get compliments when you wear this dress :)" —Little Leslie

Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in blue, brown, and gray)

12. A pack of cat gel pens, if you're looking for an easy way to come out as a Cat Person at work.

Promising review: "They're great-quality pens, don't smudge or smear my planner, and are utterly adorable! If you like cute stationery, a must-buy!" —Amazon Customer Price: $6.99 (for a six-pack)

13. A V-neck cardigan with snaps, that'll have envious onlookers muttering "Oh, snap!"

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is my go-to cardy now! I loved it as a layer when I went to San Francisco, and I have kept wearing it ever since. It's not too long and not too short on me. It doesn't cover my butt all the way, so I wouldn't wear it just with leggings, but it's just short enough that it looks good with jeans. Sizing: I'm a solid 18, apple shape, with kind of broad shoulders/back; I got an XL and it's perfectly fitted, not too tight or loose anywhere, and very soft and stretchy." —Julia

Price: $23.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in16 colors)

14. A pack of underarm deodorant wipes, because your underarms are underattack.

Promising review: "These are so much better than trying to use baby wipes to freshen up. I like the beachy scent and they are perfect for use after work or the gym." —CatherinePrice: $7.69 And check out our picks for the best natural deodorant on BuzzFeed Reviews.

15. A set of satin pillow covers to con all of your guests into thinking you are living a life of luxury.

Promising review: "These pillowcases are beautiful! They are well made, soft and slippery (as satin should be,) and having fold closures instead of zippers was not a problem at all — none of my pillows have come out of their cases. They are easily the same, or better, quality than the higher-priced cases. I didn't even know about the skin and hair benefits of satin until after I'd ordered them. They are so amazing. I actually ordered them because my cat and dog are shedding a LOT and I can't get all the hair off even with washing them. I just guessed that the hair wouldn't stick to satin and I was totally right — it just slides right off! I later learned that I wasn't the only one to have thought of this lol." —Downside_UpwardPrice: $9.99 for a pair (available standard and king sizes and in six colors)

16. An earwax removal aid, because you're about to go full Shrek on your ears (and would prefer being in the privacy of your home when you eject a candle's worth of gunk).

Promising review: My right ear was totally plugged. Went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one that doctors usually tell patients to go get. OH MY GOSH... The gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear." —CDPrice: $5.59

17. A quick-dry primer spray designed to reduce dry time and provide heat protection, for anyone who doesn't have a whole morning to waste on drying their hair.

Promising review: "The product really does seem to speed up blow-drying time; I have fine, straight hair (but a lot of it) that's about shoulder length and I can dry it in seven to eight minutes with this product. It also leaves my hair very soft. It has a mild but pleasant scent." —scooterjoey Price: $3.97

18. Or a styling spray if you need a bit of help in the more volume and less frizz departments.

Promising review: "I have slightly wavy hair and have to really push it to get it to look wavy enough to not look frizzy and raggedy. This spray helped to contain the frizz and add volume to my hair. It didn't leave any residue behind and my hair was soft, not crunchy. It works quite well and at a bargain price!" —PattyTPrice: $3.97

19. And a top-selling vibrator for some good vibes in the bedroom.

Promising review: "This toy is seriously amazing! I have a Satisfyer Pro 2 ($70) and the Womanizer ($100-250), which are similar sucking-type toys, and this is way more powerful. The price is great — it gave me a orgasm when the other two toys that are supposed to be so great and are insanely expensive didn’t. Definitely try this, you won’t regret it." —Jazzy

Price: $34.95
