    1. A pair of gap fillers to fix that pesky problem of food always falling in between your stove and the counter. Never again will you have to carefully lug your stove out from the wall just to pick up one lone potato that slipped through.

    Promising review: "I ordered these silicone gap covers to keep debris from falling in between our kitchen appliances and the counters. The thing that sold me was when I read a review on here that stated that they were able to use it for the gap between the stove and fridge. I have the same setup in my apartment. Countertop on one side of the stove and fridge on the other. The silicone sticks very well to the fridge, stove, and counter. It doesn’t move around very easily, which is a good thing." —Kevin B.

    Price: $11.95+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    2. Or gap fillers for your car because there's nothing worse than forgetting about a french fry you lost in the black chasm that is the space between seat and console, only to remember it's there months later when the smell of moldy food greets you every morning.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me. Little did I realize it would be one of my most favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this. That's why I gave it 5 stars!" —Tessa Forbes

    Price: $24.99

    3. A pack of Command hook frame hangers so you don't have to go through the hassle of putting holes in your wall that your landlord will make you fill before you move out. These adhere to your wall the way normal Command strips do but have a "nail" aspect to them that allows you to easily hang pictures and art. And they remain completely hidden!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not a fan of hanging pictures. I hate putting a hole in the wall to find out the picture is too high or off-center. These are great as I can avoid putting holes in the wall and get the desired hanging strength from just one anchor point. I hung about 10 pictures in a matter of a few hours. We totally changed the look of our home. I'm happy because when we want to change things up we can remove them without having nail holes that need to be filled and painted." —Eric Wentz

    Price: $3.44+ (available in two sizes and three variety packs)

    4. A box of washing machine cleaners that you didn't know you needed. Yes, even the thing that washes your clothes and towels needs to be cleaned. Reviewers were shocked to see all the gunk and grime that lived in their washing machines before these little cleaners.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every great thing people have said about this product is true! I've been quite literally kicking myself for not giving it a try sooner. Believe me when I say your washer will love you for the treatment and you will have a new love for your washing machine." —Jane Q. Doe

    Price: $6.99+ (available in packs of three, five, and six)

    5. An ear wax remover to improve your quality of life. This gadget cleans the wax from your ear which can cause hearing problems, earaches, and dizziness. Say goodbye to asking those around you to repeat themselves a million times.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Amazing product! At first, I was a little hesitant thinking that this would be a cheap one-time (or a couple of times) use item. I have literally fallen in love with this! Those lonely nights sitting in bed are a thing of the past! Now when I have nothing to do, I bust this bad boy out and enjoy watching me take care of those filthy holes! The first time I used it I was absolutely blown away by how much came out! I thought I kept it clean, but boy was I wrong! This has been the best purchase all year! Thanks for the great quality product at a very reasonable price!" —LilDMan

    Price: $34.99 (available in four colors)

    6. An electric kettle that will look pretty on your countertop and also make your morning routine a breeze. This amazing appliance boils water in five minutes and the sleek cordless design allows you to carry it wherever your cup is so you don't have to precariously make your way to the table with a cup of boiling water.

    Promising review: "Waited a few months so I could write a review. This will be the only one I would rebuy. Functions perfectly, takes about two to three minutes to boil. The inside doesn’t rust or get spots. No plastic parts other than the top finger ring. I have zero complaints after three months of use — it’s flawless. Do not waste money on more expensive ones or cheaper ones. The price on this is super fair and you're getting something better than every other on market." —David jr. 

    Price: $65.99 (available in six colors)

    7. A smart mug because there is nothing worse than getting sucked into a work assignment, then grabbing your cup for a sip of tea only to find it has become lukewarm. This futuristic appliance keeps the contents of your mug warm for up to an hour and a half.

    Promising review: "Best thing since sliced bread! I hate when my coffee gets cold. I was originally looking for one of those warming coasters, but then I saw the Ember mugs — there was no turning back. I can take my coffee with me into my boss's office and it still stays hot? Yes, please. I used the app and have adjusted my temp down to 127 degrees. It stays at that temperature the entire time. I’ve not had an issue with battery life either, doesn’t take me more than an hour to polish off a cup of coffee. I HIGHLY recommend." —Matthews

    Price: $99.95 (available in two colors)

    8. A skin-clearing Differin regimen kit reviewers credit with getting rid of cystic acne, adult acne, and more. The non-foaming cleanser and adapalene gel help clear clogged pores while simultaneously promoting cell growth to help smooth your skin and reduce the presence of scars.

    amazon.com

    I never had acne when I was younger but since I've come into my ~adulthood~ I've gotten super painful patches of acne. My brother recommended this set of magical products and it has worked miracles in helping clear my face and bring my confidence back. 

    Promising review: "This stuff is my favorite beauty product! The gel seems to dry my skin out if I use it every day, so I use a sparing amount every other day. My breakouts are manageable now! Dealing with acne my entire life, this stuff used to require a prescription and was crazy expensive! The prescription does have a higher percentage of medicine in the gel, which really dried my skin out, so this weaker strength actually works better for me! I'm 34 and still have cystic acne, and since using the entire Differin system I can honestly tell you that I went from multiple painful cystic pimples to maybe one or two every few months. I have had several people interested in what I have done and complimented me on how good my skin is looking! I also bought the dark spot correcting serum and I highly recommend that as well!" —woodland.andrea

    Price: $29.99

    9. A hide-a-key rock for those days when you accidentally lock your keys in the house. This handy hiding spot looks like a real rock to fool anyone snooping around and can withstand water, dirt, and sunlight.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have put this little fake rock in a few different situations and it has held strong and kept my key safe, clean and dry. I have put the rock underground, on a stable surface (exposed to the elements) and submerged underwater for a few months at a time without making any change or adding sealant." —Jorge Martinez

    Price: $6.99+ (available in packs of one or two) 

    10. A cellphone stand to take your WFH station up a notch. Easily display your phone on your desk so you can change the music, check notes, and answer important Snapchats from your mom. Or is that just me?

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve had this in my wish list and finally decided to purchase. I’m so glad I finally did. I was most surprised by the fact it is made of metal and not plastic. It is sturdy and keeps my phone in easy reach on my desk at work. I love the cord cutout that allows you to charge with the phone in an upright position. With my old stand, I would have to charge with the phone on its side. If you listen to music while you work this is a functional and attractive addition to use. Love it" —Jenn.K

    Price: $9.99 (available in five colors)

    11. An electric wine opener and chiller that will make you the ultimate host at your next soiree. No more struggling to pull the cork out of your wine bottles only to have them snap in half. Just press a button on this rechargeable wine opener and watch as the cork slides out with ease.

    Promising review: "I received this as a gift during the holidays and I am in love. It is extremely user-friendly! The phrase 'it's so easy a monkey can do it' comes to mind. Its design makes it easy to hide away and fit nicely in a cabinet or a drawer, but let's be honest it's on the countertop for easy access ;) I haven't had to charge it since I received it — I open a few bottles of wine a month so it holds a pretty good charge. The foil cutter works like a charm, and the chiller gets the job done. For the price and quality, I would definitely recommend this to a friend." —Manda

    Price: $29.99

    12. A PopSocket phone grip if you're the kind of person who is *always* dropping your phone trying to take a picture or pull up a text message. This adhesive grip allows you to hold your phone in between two fingers and retracts into itself so you can still shove your phone in your back pocket when not in use.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Talk about the best design/function combo. If you get this PopSocket you might as well cancel your phone insurance because your phone won't be going anywhere. This PopSocket will give you the confidence you need to take that risky selfie at Niagara Falls. If you want to improve your life ten fold, I recommend this product." —alyssa

    Price: $9.97

    13. A tray for your car that will revolutionize how you travel. Place this tray against your steering wheel for an impromptu meal session during a road trip or for that Zoom meeting you forgot about when you're out running errands instead of working.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I work five days a week in a COVID ICU and have been eating in my vehicle to reduce the risk of spread in the lunchroom or restaurants. Had been struggling with eating in comfort all these months until I stumbled upon an article about interesting gadgets on Amazon. Where have you been?! Slapped it on and immediately in love! No issues with having to turn my steering wheel around, no strong smell, fits my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee perfectly. Best COVID purchase ever to provide so much happiness with just a few dollars! Thank you!" —A Lee

    Price: $13.99

    14. A portable vacuum sealer to keep your food fresh and perfectly resealed. Press the heat sealer side on the bag to preheat and then simply slide it across. Then, when you're ready to dive back into those Flaming Hot Cheetos, use the cutting side to reopen the sealed bag.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have had issues with moths in our pantry. So we decided to buy these heat sealers to reseal open bags. The price seemed too good to be true, so I decided to give them a try. After a few tries getting the batteries right, they worked like a charm. No need to look for something more expensive. This works great!" —Giuseppe

    Price: $15.99+ (available in three colors)

    15. A fidget toy so you can keep your mind occupied during the day and also look like a genius trying to solve some sort of weird Rubik's Cube. This thing can be broken apart, put back together, rearranged, and more, keeping even the most fidgety of people engaged.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't let the small package fool you — this little cube packs a big punch! My son has burned through fidget cubes and spinners, you name it. So I was looking for something different and the Infinity Cube did NOT disappoint! He carries it in his pocket now and whips it out all the time, constantly flipping it around into different 'stations' as he calls it. The way it folds into itself is crazy and super addicting! I have even found myself messing with it when he's not looking. Plus, it's relatively quiet, which is nice. Really great little toy and I would recommend!" —Bonnie

    Price: $6.99

    16. An over-the-sink drying rack for those homes that simply don't have the counter space to spare for a drying rack. This handy tool sits perfectly above the sink and allows water from your dishes to drip back into the basin so you don't have to worry about mildew buildup.

    reviewer image of the drying rack over a sink with plates, cups, silverware, and washing tools in the different sections
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We've only had this dish rack a few days and already love it. This is a lifesaver for apartment living and limited counter space! It is perfect for cups, utensils, pots, pans, and even the cutting board! It's very sturdy, easy to put together, and seems like it will last a long time. I really love the removable baskets to suit whatever I need to dry. Now we have more counter space, our dishes dry faster and we no longer have to worry about a draining board collecting water and getting crusty or moldy. This is worth every penny!" —Margaret Ebey

    Price: $69.99

    17. A tile toothbrush to clean those hard-to-scrub places on your floor or counter. You'll be amazed at how stained and dirty the grout between your tiles can get. Give it a quick scrub with this baby and it'll feel like a renovation. Just make sure to keep it away from actual toothbrushes so no one gets confused.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this to clean my tile-floor grout, which after using this I realized was MUCH filthier than I even realized! The before and after were night and day. And let me tell you, seeing the difference is addicting and caused me to clean way more and way quicker than I was even planning. Happy grout cleaning!" —Kelly

    Price: $17.99

    18. A Tile Bluetooth tracker so you always know where your most valuable possessions are. Place one of these in your bag, on your keys, even on your pet's collar, and check the app on your phone whenever you can't find what you're searching for.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love my Tiles. My wife's purse had been missing for two days. This morning we realized her Tile was also in the purse, so we checked the app. Sure enough, it showed us exactly when the purse had been removed from our home — it even led us to the purse, which had been stashed under a neighbor's porch, down the street. Simply amazing. If we didn't have Tile the purse and all its contents would most likely have NEVER been recovered." —ZetaOmega

    Price: $34.99+ (available in packs of one, two, and four)

    19. A coffee pod carousel that will add a cute touch to your coffee station and also clear up cupboard space. Display your delicious brew options in this carousel and give it a spin to decide what kind of coffee you'll be having today.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this carousel. It's attractive, sturdy, and turns easily. It also fits under my cupboard with heaps of room to spare. It holds 35 reusable K-Cups that I fill myself, little gems that I also love. I couldn't be happier with this purchase." —Catherine Anderson Arthur

    Price: $18.99+ (available in six sizes and three colors)

    20. A cheese board set with movable sections so you can easily transport your beautiful charcuterie creation to a friend's potluck and then display it in an elegant fashion. Plus, it comes with a knife set so you don't have to purchase extra utensils for cheese and preserve spreading.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It really is beautiful! The packaging is super elegant! The wood is nice and thick. The ceramic dishes are generous in size and four was really enough for the kalamata olives, pickled onions, roasted peppers, and black olives. We didn't use the cracker section for crackers but put kumquats in the curvy section. All three kinds of cheese fit nicely in the center. The utensils worked very well and storing them inside was a nice touch. The magnetic closure worked well. Overall, we really liked it, and will use it each time we have an 'appetizer meal'. It is beautiful as well as practical!" —Mona

    Price: $57.95

    21. A breakfast sandwich maker that's the best thing I have ever spent money on. This revolutionary appliance makes incredible breakfast sandwiches in under five minutes, doing all the hard work for you. Just take an English muffin, egg, cheese, and any additions you like (sausage, ham, spinach, tomatoes, etc.), place them in the machine, and watch the magic happen.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "FAM: I need you to listen! I would give this product 87 stars if I could. This thing was delivered to my doorstep in two business days and will provide a lifetime of joy for me. You'd think it would be one of those gimmicky kitchen appliances that barely even works. EXCEPT you're wrong. It's amazing. It's quick. Look. Listen. You put the ingredients in and about two minutes later your tummy is all like, 'oh yesssss.' Basically, just buy it. Purchase the sandwich maker. You're welcome." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $24.99+ (available in four colors)

    22. A mirror for your shower so you can see what you're doing while shaving. Or if you just want to check yourself out while shampooing your hair, it works for that, too!

    reviewer image of the mirror on a shower wall with a razor hanging off the build in razor holder
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This mirror lives up to expectations. I installed it on a glass block wall (which tends to have uneven surfaces) and it adhered great. Follow the instructions — splash some hot water on the mirror face before you shower — and it stays absolutely fog-free. I got the largest version and am glad I did. The little places to hang a shaver or toothbrush are nice. If I had to do it over, I'd buy this one again." —Images Per Second

    Price: $19.99+ (available in four colors)

    23. A litter genie to keep those inevitable smells that come with owning a kitty at bay. Toss waste from the litter box into the genie, close the lid, and pull the tray in the middle to move the waste further down the genie, trapping the smell below. Then just replace the bag once it's full.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing! Having to take litter out three or four times a day was making me question how my two cats can still be so cute. With this thing, I take the litter out twice a month. It retains the smell to where it doesn't even seem like I have cats in the house anymore. The feature of having a bag cutter inside so it's easy to keep the cartridge going is wonderful!" —Sharon

    Price: $19.99

    24. A silicone popcorn maker so you can bring the experience of a movie theater to your home. Just throw popcorn kernels in this silicone bowl, pop it in the microwave, pull it out, and add whatever toppings you like.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This microwave popper works great! It needs no oil for popping, just add butter or whatever you like as a topping. Also very easy to clean. I took a reviewer's advice and preheated the popper in the microwave for about 30 seconds before adding the popcorn. There are a bunch of these on the market that all look the same and probably are; I purchased this one because it was the cheapest. Actually bought a second one for our summer home because I was so happy with it! Highly recommend!" —skeeter '57

    Price: $12.99 (available in 10 colors)

    25. A long-lasting liquid matte lipstick that adheres to your lips without drying them out. This highly-pigmented lipstick brings a touch of color to your face, and in 45 different shades, you can build your lipstick collection from nudes to bright reds in one fell swoop.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this lipstick and the color! It feels moisturizing on my lips, I can add chapstick and it doesn’t get all streaky and gummy and it lasts forever. I was looking for a nude-ish color that didn’t make my lips look like ashy versions of themselves and this is it! Definitely recommend." —Queenofthehouse

    Price: $6.64 (available in 45 shades)

    26. A touch lamp with a USB charger that allows you to easily change the lighting in your room with just the tap of your finger. Plus, it frees up an outlet from your phone charger so you can plug in more important things, like those rainbow LED lights you just bought for above your bed.

    reviewer image of the lamp on a tabletop with a plant and diffuser next to it, and an ipad and apple watch charging in front of it with the cords connected to the two USB ports in the lamp
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you are looking for a bedside lamp, look no further. I have had Amazon Prime for years and this is my first review because I’m impressed AF with this lamp. I don’t know what I have been doing without a bedside lamp and a USB charger for my phone in a bedside lamp. It’s not an annoying LED white light. It’s warm lighting which is the ONLY way to go if you want any sort of ambiance." —Annie

    Price: $29.99 (available in four colors)

    27. And a matcha latte mix if you're tired of spending tons of cash on coffee shop matcha. This lightly sweetened mix allows you to make barista-level matcha drinks from the comfort of your own kitchen.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This matcha is EXACTLY like good matcha from a cafe. So excited to have this available anytime now. It is sweetened but not too much, and that means a lot as I do NOT prefer extremely sweet drinks. Perfect with unsweetened oat milk and a touch of lavender syrup!" —Emma DiMaria

    Price: $24.95
