    1. A genius little Pocket Palette, a travel-friendly totally portable kit with everything you need to do your makeup on the go! It includes mascara, BB cream, and blush/lip tint that'll have you looking fly AF without having to carry your entire makeup bag around.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    Promising review: "I travel often for work, and it’s so much easier to pack a few pocket palettes than tote my regular makeup — they’re super carry-on bag/airport friendly! I love my Lancôme but I’d much rather not tote around heavy glass bottles, so I keep a palette at the ready for the gym, in my purse, at my desk at work, etc. — they’re that convenient. For the makeup itself, the quality of the BB cream is great. It’s light, feels and looks natural, you can get at least two full uses out of the quantity. The lip/cheek color amount is also generous. I personally go for a darker lip generally, but this is good for blush and will last me a while. I love how handy the mascara applicator is, so fun-sized. For someone on the go, who isn't soooo makeup savvy that I'm contouring all the time, this product is really practical!" —Maureen

    2. A pack of fluorescent highlighters designed with a clear tip so you can see what you're highlighting and don't overshoot.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a highlighter junkie and I love these. The colors are pigmented enough to draw attention to it but not so much so that I can't read the font that I highlighted. It rarely, if ever, bleeds through paper. I usually avoid green and orange because they tend to be too pigmented and dark but the ones in this bunch are perfect. It also does not smudge and I'm very prone to that since I'm left-handed. I like the clear view part since it helps me see when I should stop highlighting, very precise." —Steph

    3. A two-sided waterproof, smudge-proof liquid eyeliner designed with a stamp edge that'll always give you the perfect wing.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have purchased about a half dozen 'winged' stamp liners here on Amazon and this one is BY FAR my most favorite. As opposed to other stamps this set actually GOES ON BLACK, the stamp works perfectly vs. a half-stamp you have to fill in — and the ink is actually BLACK and stays on all day long." —ERIN

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in three sizes and two colors).

    4. A pair of copper-infused arch supports for help with swelling and the increase of circulation, while also helping with arch and heel issues by lifting the plantar fascia tissue.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I put these on after they came in the mail, wore them for about an hour, then as I was resting on the couch, I fell into the kind of deep sleep that one only dreams of. This was the most epic, most restorative nap I can remember. The kind of nap Joey Tribbiani and Ross Geller had in Friends. I am kinda afraid to take them off now. I wear them with my flip-flops, under my socks in tennis shoes, and to bed. My feet feel great. As for whether or not they contributed to my most perfect nap, I don't know for sure, but I'm rolling with it." —Texas Sandra Dee

    5. A genius Whiskware pancake batter mixer that's designed with a BlenderBall wire whisk — just drop in the ingredients to make your favorite pancake batter, shake up the bottle, and use the spot to drop the perfect amount onto the griddle. It's that easy!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE this thing! Breakfast has never been faster or easier! And it doesn't make noise that will wake everyone up while I am mixing. The silicone tip is real silicone (for those wondering about the pinch test) and does well against cast-iron. I have never been able to get my pancakes this fluffy until now! So great! Planning on buying more from this brand! It is also super easy to clean. The bottom comes off to fill it up and it turns into a holder for the bottle by setting the top into the bottom setting. It suggests putting in your liquid first then your mix but if making a large amount you might have to gently tap it a bit." —KC Hunter

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. A set of cool and silky pillowcases with one side designed in a state-of-the-art Japanese cooling fabric and the other side in 100% breathable cotton — basically, you'll always know which is the cool side of the pillow.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best...Pillowcases...Ever!! I run hot all the time, especially at night. This really helps to keep me cool at night. I fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed. The cool side of the pillow is always your side of the pillow! I actually sometimes get cold during the night. If you wake up in the middle of the night sweating, you need to get this!" —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    7. A very handy Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set filled with so much useful information — like, cooking times and liquid ratios — so you can make your favorite Instant Pot recipes even easier than before.

    The Instant Pot Magnetic Cheat Sheet Set.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This certainly is a handy, organized way to check Instant Pot cooking references for various foods. The highlighted portions are a little bit too shaded to easily see the print beneath but overall is well thought out. The item came quickly, well-packaged. Didn't even know this type thing existed." —mew

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two sets).

    8. A calming and relaxing weighted blanket that comes with two duvet covers — one is a cozy fleece and the other is made of a CoolMax Microfiber technology that can help ventilate heat away from your body.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This blanket is wonderful! I was always curious to try a weighted blanket but was skeptical if they actually worked. After reading reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. I am so glad I did. I was having a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. After receiving this blanket, my sleep has improved dramatically and I stay asleep most of the night. I like the option of having the cooling duvet and the warmer one. I am a hot sleeper so I stick with the cool one. The only downside to the blanket is changing the duvets you have to tie countless pieces together for it to stay in place but other than that this blanket is sooo worth it!!" —Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in 10 sizes and four colors).

    9. A handy little in-car dip clip perfect for all the dinner parties you plan on hosting at your new favorite restaurant.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these!!! The part that grips on to your vent, is actually a very tough cushion that keep the weight of the Saucemote with ketchup container, from sliding down. I usually now keep one in my Jeep and a second in my purse for use when I’m in someone else’s car!" —Gillian

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.05. There's also a very handy french fry holder you might want to consider.

    10. A stainless-steel Skin Spatula that uses high-frequency vibration to clean blackheads, whiteheads, grease, and dead skin — just make sure and use it on wet skin.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but I could not pass this one up. I have been fighting with my skin for years! After my last pregnancy, I started developing cystic acne, my skin was congested with oil, whiteheads, blackheads, you name it. All those years of desperately doing my own extractions, trying every mask, cleanser, device, my skin was left scarred and discolored — I hated the texture of my skin. I impulsively bought this and tried it the day it was delivered. I was amazed at how well it extracted all the gunk I could and couldn't see lurking under my skin. I use it every night to cleanse, then apply my serum and moisturizer. I took the first set of photos on 5/27 and still didn't love how my skin looked under makeup. I could tell it was doing something though so I stuck with it. Three days later, I woke up in shock! Took the second set of photos wearing the same makeup (but needed much less). I am finally happy with the way my skin looks and posted a selfie without a filter for the first time since I can remember! Just try it! (All photos were taken in natural light. Must've gotten some cloud cover in the last one. No filters on ANY of them! I'm still in shock!)" —Marlena H.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    11. A sturdy hand-held sharpener designed to fit and sharpen not only your knives and blades but also your kitchen scissors who could probably use a little love.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great for sharpening scissors. Purchased in December 2017 and it's still working great. Recommend watching Smith's video for this tool on Amazon. Very handy tool. I have four pairs of kitchen scissors I like to keep clean and sharp for food only. I have four pairs of scissors I use for gardening I like to keep sharp. Works great for all of them." —sandy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    12. A pack of Bottle Bright for an all-natural, biodegradable, odor-free way to clean your water bottle.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Finished using it five minutes ago and it’s the best! My husband uses a Stanley thermos daily to take coffee to work. He tries to remember to rinse it out every day, but that doesn’t always happen. I got the package today, filled the thermos with water, dropped in a tablet, and let it sit. I promptly forgot about it for a few hours. Initially, I was disappointed when I dumped the water, as it was barely tinged brown. Then I put fresh water in, covered the top, shook it, and OMG. The crap that came out was disgusting, yet fascinating. I looked in the thermos and saw almost nothing but sparkly silver! There was a little crud left in the top third of the thermos, but it’s a really tall one, so I wasn’t surprised. Got the bottle brush, swished twice, and bam! All clean! No fumes, no smell, no nothing, just clean. I used to struggle cleaning it with baking soda, vinegar, the brush, soap, and elbow grease. Screw that. I will forever use only these tablets! Here’s to better tasting (and way less gross) coffee!" —BranchingOut

    13. Speaking of cleaning those things you always forget to clean: a Diamond Dazzle Stick to help polish your precious jewels and make them shine bright like...well, like a diamond.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong, my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However, after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik, oh my goodness! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it — it literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! This thing is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    14. A bug bite suction tool that'll remove the venom from any stings and help reduce itchiness, pain, and swollenness.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using it, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    15. A pack of nonstick and reusable toaster bags designed to be heat resistant, easy to clean, and — most importantly — perfectly fit a grilled cheese sandwich that you'll be able to easily cook in your toaster.

    The toaster bag in a toaster with a sandwich inside it.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love to share a new 'gotta have' and weeellllll, THIS IS IT! When I was growing up my mother made toast by buttering the bread then toasting it in a toaster oven, we never had a pop-up toaster. So, now I really don't like toast that is cooked first then buttered after toasting, it is just not the same. Well, for some dumb reason I bought a pop-up toaster last year (I think it was to toast bagels) and I almost never use it because of UGH DRY TOAST! Since I bought it I have been trying to figure out how to put butter before cooking without making a nasty mess in the toaster — not possible. HOWEVER, 'seek and ye shall find' — I found these! OH HAPPY DAY! Such a happy girl!" —N. Babb

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $7.99.

    16. A bottle of REPEL Insect Repellent — made with plant-based lemon and eucalyptus oils that'll protect you from all those annoying pests that leave you scratching forever.

    A bottle of REPEL Plant-Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent
    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG does this stuff have a strong smell to it. It not only repels mosquitoes but I'm sure it could work on mothers-in-law, exes, lawyers, cops, etc. I mean my wife was sent away in tears so imagine what it must do to the bugs. This stuff is awesome!" —Mike E plus 3

    Get two from Amazon for $14.43.

    17. A BPA-free, dishwasher-safe cold brew iced coffee maker so you can finally save some $$$ and make your coffee at home.

    The cold brew iced coffee maker.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this to make cold brew coffee at the office. My coworkers and I were going to the local Siren at least three to four times a week for our afternoon pick me up. It was starting to become a serious drain financially. We all chipped in to get this pitcher and take turns buying beans. Get them ground for a French press, or super coarse, and you'll have a pretty good replica. The instructions for making cold brew are pretty easy. Of course, you'll get some micro grinds that will make their way through the filter but that's to be expected. If you're OCD about it, you could pour it through a strainer or paper filter. Or just let it settle and pour gently. We've seriously cut down our caffeine expenditures by 50-75%. Now if we could figure out a way to order out less. :)" —DT

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    18. A pack of facial and eyebrow razors that'll help shape your eyebrows, remove fine hairs, and even smooth your skin.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love 💕 these little razors for all that peach 🍑 fuzz. My face looks so smooth now!!! They’re really easy to use. I had no idea there was such a product! My esthetician used something similar on my face and I thought 💭 I can do that!! So glad I found it!" —Patti16

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. A two-piece bedside water carafe so you can quench that middle-of-the-night thirst without having to make that dreadful (and cold) walk to the fridge.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect bedside carafe. It's a perfect size, dishwasher-safe, and sturdy glass." —Big Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50+ (available in two designs).

    20. A USB-powered LED light strip to bring the perfect amount of ambient lighting to your TV-watching experience.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Easy to install. Lights provide ample lighting; USB allows lights to be a stand-alone fixture without tying up another wall socket. The USB interface also acts to turn the lights on and off with the TV. Backlighting also seems to make the screen seem sharper." —Shaun

    Get it from Amazon for $17.01+ (available in for TVs from 30" to 80" ).

    21. A genius little Aquapaw slow treat-dispensing mat so you can distract your pup while you clean 'em up — it easily sticks to any smooth service (like your shower tiles) and you just fill it with some PB.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I love this simple but amazing mat so much. My dog hates baths and, although she’s huge, she tries to jump out of the bath leaving me and the floor soaking wet. Since this purchase, she stands patiently until her peanut butter is gone, and I get to give her the most thorough baths she’s ever had. best of all, I stay dry! I encourage you to purchase this!!!" —LunasMom

    Get it from Chewy for $10.95.

    22. A pack of light dimming stickers designed specifically to cover those constant blinking LED lights on all your electronics that brighten your room — when you're trying to sleep.

    A customer review picture of before and after placing the light dimming stickers.
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim, I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game-changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape, regular tape covered in sharpie, etc, but true to the name of these products if you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also, the product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $6.49.

    23. A pack of Command picture-hanging strips that'll aid you in hanging your ever-growing art collection without digging any holes into your walls.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have these things all over my house. I use them to keep the blackout curtains closed, to attach blackout curtains to the wall, to hang picture frames, canvas posters, random wall art, keep statue/ trinket things affixed to the desk...pretty much everywhere. Now I will say there are some things that should not be hung with these; for example, heavy frames (i.e. diploma frames, frames with uneven surfaces on the back) and some walls do not work well with these. Definitely do a test run on something simple and cheap before you go crazy with it so you can see if it's compatible with your walls. They were definitely well worth the money when I moved apartments and did not have one nail hole to remove, they pulled off just as expected." —Michele J.

    Get a pack of four pairs from Amazon for $3.79+ (available in larger packs).

    24. A very comfy stability cushion designed to fit on top of any chair and help you improve your posture.

    The stability cushion on an office chair.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "My job requires me to sit practically all day at work which caused me to become very restless and give me back problems. I couldn't sit still for five minutes without adjusting myself. I also began to worry about the bad posture I could be having because of it as well. I found this and gave it a shot. I've only had it for a little more than a week but the difference with it has been amazing! I can sit at my desk all day long without feeling discomfort or back pain. It sits neatly on my chair without looking too noticeable, and now my biggest problem is trying to keep my co-workers from stealing it from me. $20 for this thing is honestly a steal! So worth it!" —MeLissa

    Get it from Amazon for $21.98+ (available in two colors).

    25. A double-sided silicone lip brush to get rid of any excess skin and make your lips totally matte lipstick–ready.

    A model holding three scrubber lip brushes.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical about this product but my desperation to regain my soft lips made me click the BUY button. I just had a baby and between all the milk I was pumping for the baby and caffeine drinking my body was dried out and dehydrated. My lips took a hit and were dried, cracked, and even bleeding — very painful. Even my tried and true expensive-as-heck lip moisturizer I use couldn't help. Having this lip brush did the trick and made all the difference. The exfoliation must have allowed my lip moisturizer to get better absorbed. I was able to see results in just a couple of days. Now I have soft and supple lips again. I tried using a toothbrush and I would not recommend it. First, the toothbrush doesn't feel as good and second, it will waste whatever product you are using with it because the product will settle deep in the bristles so you have to use a lot more of it, and third it's also hard to clean. This silicone lip brush feels so good and since the 'bristles' or 'bumps' are shallow, I just needed to use a little bit of my expensive lip moisturizer and it was so easy to clean the brush afterward. Where has this thing been all my life? I don't think I can live without it now." —Double-J

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three colors). And you might want to consider pairing it with this effective little lip scrub, if you're in the market.

    26. A nylon (so it's non-stick safe) colander strainer designed with a discreet hook so it easily attaches to the side of your pan — it's also dishwasher-safe, heat-resistant up to 200°C/392°F, and works with fried foods.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It is quite sturdy and has no issues holding lots of ravioli, tortellini, or any other shaped pasta. One note, it does not do well with long spaghetti. It is also great for grabbing veggies out when I blanch them in water or chicken breasts I have poached. I was injured in an automobile accident and my hands are not in great condition. This has made having to use tongs for some things no longer necessary. It has also — almost totally — made lifting heavy pots full of liquid, unnecessary. Cooking is therapy for me and to find any tools which make it easier for me, is fantastic! I highly recommend this scoop to anyone needing a little help in the kitchen, or who just wants to not have to pull out strainers all of the time." —Kayce Cawthon McCarty

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three colors).

    27. A pack of bra strap clips to help hold everything in place and stop you from doing the grab for your sliding straps every 20 seconds.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Since I started using these clips, I haven't had to pull up my straps a single time! I used to have to pull them back up a dozen times a day. No more. Now I can put on my bra and then just forget that it is there. I don't notice any change in the fit of my bra. I wear a large cup size and the last thing I wanted was to add to that. However, with the straps fully extended on my bra, I find the fit to be essentially the same as before. The only difference is that the straps stay in place. If you've ever struggled to keep your straps up, you owe it to yourself to try this product." —K. Howe

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.97+ (available in nine options).

    28. A set of stainless steel magnetic measuring spoons that'll help in your quest of keeping an organized and jam-free drawer.

    The magnetic measuring spoons laid out on a cutting board.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been using cheap, flimsy little metal scoops that my son likes to steal and wanted something more functional. I like that these have the two ends, sometimes a recipe needs the same sized tsp for two different ingredients and it's annoying to have to wash for every single one. This resolved that! The magnet is not very strong at all. It holds them together but alone they won't sick on the fridge or my metal bowls, only a metal surface if it's wide and if there's no gravity to oppose the magnet (on top of an edge but not on the side of anything)." —Lisa

    Get the eight-piece set from Amazon for $13.97+ (available in two colors).

    29. A double-ended extension chord, because sometimes you need two extension chords but only have one outlet to spare!

    Amazon

    Cords are six feet long and have three plugs each.

    Promising review: "I have no idea why these are not sold everywhere. PERFECT for my room! I ended up getting this due to my king size bed being against a wall with only one outlet. I needed a way to connect my two lamps on my nightstand and this is absolutely, without a doubt, the very best solution to connecting my lamps and also not having all my outlets taken up. I recommend this to everyone! Also perfect for outlets connected to a switch to turn on and off both lights at the same time." —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (also available in black).

    30. And while we're talking about extension cords — a six-foot, three-outlet extension cord you can mold around almost any object so it stays in place.

    The moldable extension cord wrapped around a ladder.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have five of these cords now. They are the BEST thing ever. No more bending down low or trying to reach the outlet in the wall, from behind things. The plug is right there for you. I'm getting older, and have back issues, so these are SO wonderful and helpful for me. Love them. You can wrap them around pretty much anything and they stay! You will not be sorry with these. Get them for your parents/grandparents!! They will appreciate them!" —Nancy

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My wonderful wife frequently uses a mandolin in the kitchen. Sometimes, I believe she thinks she's on Top Chef or Chopped. When she gets into julienning, I'm just waiting with car keys in hand to take her to the ER. So, as a proactive measure, I purchased these. They are quite comfortable. They stretch with excellent elasticity. She loves them, and I feel more comfortable that she is wearing something that can protect her. She has used these gloves dozens of times. Not a single issue and she has washed them with the kitchen towels. No problem." —Jon

    33. A pair of no-tie elastic laces designed to keep your favorite sneakers securely on without the struggle of having to lace and unlace them every time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We absolutely love these! I purchased these for my 14-year-old son because I was tired of seeing his shoes untied and dragging laces. They are perfect. They are elastic but are not flimsy. They keep a firm hold while easily stretching to get the shoe on. These are so durable that my son even wears them for PE with no flopping issues; they keep his shoes firmly fitted. 14-year-old boys tend to be rough on their shoes and these laces have held up perfectly. You can't even tell they are elastic, they look like regular shoelaces. I work at a chocolate factory and learned about these from the owner and his son who both wear them day in, day out at the factory. They were impressed so I had to give them a try for my son. I would definitely buy these again." —Maria Gutierrez

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 39 colors).

    34. Glossier's Boy Brow for those thick, stay in place eyebrows you dream of but that years of over plucking just won't let you get.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I had heard about this and finally decided to give it a try after going through many other prestige brands. This product does not disappoint at all. It goes on smoothly and is just the right amount of color. Also, it makes my brows stay in place all day, not just for the first hour after application. This will be a forever purchase." —Jessica

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    35. A Tubshroom, because if you've ever had to deal with a clogged bathtub drain, you never want to have to deal with it again — and this little guy will make sure you don't have to!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Works really well. My hair collection has grown so much, I might have enough to make a hair friend soon. I shall try on the first full moon. Seriously though, so much dog hair that would have gone down my drain after just one dog bath without this. Yikes." —Kate Wills

    Promising review: "I highly recommend these Keepons. They do exactly what they say they do: keep my glasses in place. And I love that they are totally invisible. Much better than the rubber bands I was using before. 😀 I carefully measured the legs of my glasses before purchasing these and they were the right size. I ran them under hot water to make them more pliable and it was relatively easy to put them on the legs of my glasses. I've been wearing them for almost a day and find them very comfortable now that I have adjusted them to my liking." —ScotTex

    Amazon

    Promising review: "One of the best purchases I have ever made. Seriously. I have an iPhone 6 Plus, and it attaches onto the mount very firmly. The mount also attaches firmly into my air vent. No jiggling or slipping. I can touch, swipe, etc., on my phone screen without any risk of the phone falling or sliding." —Susie

    38. An easy-to-install outlet cover plate designed with LED lights so that it can double as a nightlight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These go on in about 30 seconds. They are awesome. I did not shut off the power to my outlets, but I have experience getting shocked doing residential electrical work, so I've learned my lessons about what not to touch. Even a true beginner would be able to install these without issue. Their tolerance for low-light is on the sensitive side, so they end up on more than off but the downward cast light is not bothersome. I was put off by the price at first but bought a two-pack to try out — ended up going back for 10 more." —Oliver North

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $28.98 (also available for light switches).

    39. A dual blade package opener, because for some reason companies still insist on putting the things we love and need in this ridiculous plastic prison that we can never get them out of.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a must around the house! We have one on each level of the house and it is used everywhere! This is the perfect stocking stuffer gift and we have given 20 or so of these — someone always asks where we got them! The slice-it blade works for zipping through packaging and the button-extended blade is sharp but small. This is a fabulous tool that is perfect for all the stupid hard plastic packaging with the crimped sides! Also excellent for opening taped boxes, cutting the ribbon on gifts, cutting foam board, cardboard, or chipboard." —T. C.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    40. A pack of bedsheet suspenders so you'll keep those pesky bed corners covered.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are definitely worth the price. My significant other and I apparently run marathons in our sleep, so the fitted sheet and mattress pad came off the bed without fail. We own a double pillow-top mattress and they haven't stretched out while holding a fitted sheet, (that shrunk in the wash), plus two mattress pads. They hold them firmly to the bed with no slipping. No damage has been done to the sheets, either." —Michelle

    41. A set of flame-retardant socket sealers designed to stop the cold air from leaking into your house and messing with your warm and cozy home.

    Amazon

    The 24-piece set includes 16 outlet sealers, 6 switch plates, and 2 decorative covers.

    Promising review: "Socket sealer. Say it with me. Socket sealer. Alliteration can be so much fun. Okay, now with that out of our system, down to brass tacks. I love these. They're cheap and easy to install. They block the draft that is sure to come out of an electrical outlet or a light switch. I've used these in apartments and in houses. They work both ways. Just unscrew the plate, slap one of these bad boys in, and screw the plate back in. Just be sure to not touch metal to metal or skin to metal. It's a good idea to flip the breaker to deactivate the outlets you're installing these on. Otherwise, you'll give yourself a nice jolt. Or three. You know how everyone tells you not to stick a fork into an outlet? The same principle applies here except your finger is the fork and you can't taste purple for a while. So do yourself the favor of flipping the breaker before installing these. Don't make the same mistake as I did. Once. Or maybe three times. I can't remember too good now." —Frequency Jones

    42. An adjustable multi-compartment lid organizer so you'll finally have a place to neatly store all your storage bin tops.

    A variety of lids securely stored in the lid organizer.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great caddy for all of those maverick Tupperware lids that disappear like socks in a laundry room. I was able to fit quite a few into it. It comes with five separators to cordon off different sizes/shapes of lids and consolidate two of three previous lids bins into this one. Plus, according to their card insert, the company is a small women-owned business, which I’m always happy to support." —Bridget D.

    43. A retractable keychain that holds your lip balm, because enough with losing every freakin' stick you've ever purchased and then finding it again in some random jacket pocket right after you've replaced it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you lose your Chapsticks a lot, I would highly recommend getting this holder. I love how I am able to grab my lipstick/lip balm/Chapstick, uncap, moisturize my lips, re-cap, and just let go. The retractable part is probably the best part because it makes it easy to get, and even easier to put away and not lose your Chapstick. This holder is perfect for people who travel and/or who are always losing their Chapsticks." —Mit's

    44. A genius little heat-resistant chopper to finally break up that package of ground meat, allowing it to cook evenly.

    Amazon

    Non-stick and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing this same tool from Pampered Chef but it's so pricy I didn't want to take the plunge. When I found this one on Amazon and saw how much more reasonably priced it was, I decided to go for it. I've used it a few times since purchasing and it is awesome! Works just as well as I envisioned the pricier version to work and I love that it didn't cost an arm and a leg. I am happy that this comes in red as it matches the other kitchen tools and theme of my kitchen! Thanks for making cooking with ground meat so much simpler." —Genetics

    Get it from Amazon for 6.99+ (available in three colors).

    45. A non-slip bag cinch so you can reseal your bread bags without having to struggle with that flimsy little plastic thingy that I always end up breaking and then end up having to tie the bag up only to struggle to untie it and ripping the damn bag.

    The big cinch being used to close a bag of bread.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These have to be among the most useful gadgets in my kitchen and we use them constantly for open loaves of bread, crackers, rice, and many other types of packaging where you need a secure hold. I no longer save twist ties, those funny square plastic thingies that come with so much packaging. I have ordered additional ones since the kitchen is not the only place I have found them useful." —Connie of GA

    46. A privacy screen designed to fit perfectly and give you privacy wherever you are.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect fit. Does exactly what it is designed to do, which is prevent prying eyes from seeing your computer screen. I work in an open plan office and wanted privacy from people walking past my desk. I also travel a lot and use my laptop in public spaces so I needed the security." —Tebs

    47. A mesh shower caddy for holding all those things that just don't fit in the tiny spaces around your bathtub.

    The mesh shower caddy hanging on a shower rod.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't know why I didn't go this route sooner! This mesh bag is awesome! It's minimized the bulk in my shower that my hanging metal caddy hanging from my showerhead caused. While the mesh bag does come 4x4, I currently only need use of 2x2, so I folded it in half. I love that flexibility! The pockets are deep, nothing falls out." —Lark

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97+ (available with or without curtain rings).

    48. A pack of reusable produce bags that'll help you reduce the waste after every trip to the grocery store — you can also use them to clean and rinse your fruits and veggies all in one go!

    The reusable produce bags under running water.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "SO good, SO handy, SO ecological (without being nerdy). Simple: put grapes into one bag, tomatoes in another, green beans in another... well, you get the idea. No thin plastic bags to figure out how to open without cursing or have to dispose of. Leave these bags untied so checker has access to price, then secure the tog. These bags are plenty large enough for big heads of lettuce, tons of grapes, tomatoes, etc, and they go under your faucet for thorough rinsing. You drain the contents and put the bags directly in the fridge. They are sturdily made, close perfectly, and easy to fold and carry into a grocery store. They are exactly as shown. This is a quality product. I recommend 100%." —C. Hascoat

    49. A heat-resistant silicone holster perfect for holding your hot styling tools so you aren't stuck trying to find a spot to place them — it's also designed with a patented cling technology that allows it to be repositioned and applied to any clean, smooth, and dry surface.

    The heat resistant silicone holster holding a hair straightener.
    Amazon

    Heat-resistant up to 500 degrees, plus it's dishwasher-safe...if you ever needed to wash it!

    Promising review: "After coming home from a long day at work and seeing that my wife left the hair straightener on while rushing to work — this plastic, magnificent thing probably prevented a fire in our apartment. Even though it was very hot, nothing burned! Not even the plastic holder itself! It does what it's supposed to do. It sticks to its surface and prevents fires from hair straighteners — proved it after sticking to the sink for over three months and not melting with a turned on hair straightener from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. inside." —Emre

    50. A bottle of a very handy little drywall repair putty – it'll fix all those failed attempts to hang things and get you your security deposit back.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Does exactly what it says. Rather than getting spackel, waiting for it to dry, sanding it down, and tweaking as needed — this cuts the time/effort down! Just rub over the place in need of patching and wipe off the excess. The hardest part is not accidentally getting the product on parts of the wall that don’t need it, but that’s easy to clean up, so it’s not a problem. I used this to patch holes in the wall from a former Wi-Fi router and modem, other than the color difference from the patch to the paint, you’d never know it was patched. Great price, easy to use." —Amanda

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought this for my husband after seeing a review of great new products. Has made life easier by keeping the cords from falling behind his nightstand. Way better than tape or sitting books on them. Worth it!" —Lisa I Craig

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in three colors).

    52. A portable paw plunger designed to clean your adorable pup's filthy little paws with just one quick dunk — if you really think about it, your doggo roams the streets barefoot and then curls all up on you...or maybe don't think about it.

    A series of reviewer photos showing the before-during-after results of using the paw plunger.
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have a 75 lbs., 28" tall at the shoulders Goldendoodle with curly hair and large paws, and a brand new yard on the coast that is 95% sand. In the past three months, I've been wiping his paws ineffectively and spending most of my housekeeping time sweeping/vacuuming all the sand that he brings in and deposits on our hard floors. Our new veterinarian, upon hearing me whine about the situation, recommended I buy this product because she uses it with her own dogs. From the first time I used it, I was sold! It looks like one of those oversized water jugs you can get at a convenience store, with a fitted insert for paws and legs. I stuck my hand (and my kids') inside to try it out and the bristles inside are very soft, and will not hurt sensitive paw pads. The rubber piece at the top made it tricky to pull my hand out (it reminded me of the scene in Where The Red Fern Grows with the raccoon who gets its hand stuck in a log because it won't let go of a shiny piece of tin), but that's helpful in wringing some of the water off the furry paws. Our dog is used to having his feet handled many times a day and it only took a few minutes to teach him what we were doing. But if you have a dog who is jumpy/twitchy or doesn't like having its paws touched, this might not be the right product for you." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available for small to large paws and in four colors).

    53. An estate planning journal that lets you get all your affairs in order in the event of...well — look, you're an adult and you have to think about this stuff.

    amazon.com

    This is not a legal will but it is designed to help you get organized so you can make one and it helps to spell out everything that your loved ones might wonder in the event of your...you know.

    Promising review: "Don’t let the title throw you (you can order the same material with a 'softer' title if you want, but why?), this book allows you to enter the information that your loved ones will need when you’re gone...and save them so much trouble at a time when they have enough grief to deal with. As an estate planning attorney, I recommend these books to ALL my clients. And remind them to keep the info up to date...to save the ones you love time, anguish, and money." —PJ

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    54. A portable aerosol fire extinguisher everyone should have on hand in the event of an emergency — because, when an emergency happens trying to remember how to work a big ol' fire extinguisher might not come to the top of mind.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I keep these in the kitchen pantry. Easter Sunday I put a chicken on the rotisserie and lit our well-maintained, less than five-year-old grill that had a full tank of propane and came back in the house. Not three minutes later the grill was engulfed in flames. I grabbed one of these extinguishers and was able to knock the fire back while standing a good distance away. Wearing leather gardening gloves my husband opened the bottom of the grill where the tank resides and I continued to spray while he turned off the gas. The hose that feeds the gas to the burners failed where it entered the grill. The hose looked fine when I last cleaned the grill and the connection was tight. The chicken was unharmed, well it was already dead, put it in the oven and we enjoyed a nice cocktail while our heart rates returned to normal." —Laura C

    55. A helpful copy of How Not to Kill Your Houseplant filled with the survival tips your favorite leafy friend needs to stay alive.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Really great guide to houseplants. I am an experienced outdoor vegetable gardener, who has never had much success with houseplants. The only one I've ever been able to keep alive is George, my un-killable Aspidistra (Iron Plant). Thanks to this book and the more detailed, but less cute, book Practical Houseplants I now have a little forest of air cleaning plants, succulents, retro '70s plants (rubber plant and Swiss cheese plant), and even two indoor banana trees — all healthy and happy. Even George is happier than ever, with new leaves." —Jo

    56. A countertop compost bin so you can convert your home into the green machine you know it can be.

    The compost bin on a kitchen counter.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this compost bin! It is very well designed. They actually tested all aspects of it. The one-handed operation is SO much better than having to lift off a lid like my old steel compost bin. The lid flips up/down very easily. The lid removes when you want to empty it out. The plastic inside is super smooth so there are no nooks or crannies for food to get caught. Most of the waste simply slips off and then you can just rinse it and you are good to go. I don't have to buy compost bags anymore either. There is no smell when it is on the counter. The one thing I would improve (and I'd give it four 1/2 stars if I could because of this) is that it is too small. I think it could be twice as big — a little wider and a little taller would be great. Otherwise, it really is a great product. I was worried about it looking tacky on my counter because it is plastic, but is so well designed that it even looks classy on my granite counter!" —Susanne M. Millar

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two colors). You might want to pick up some compostable bags and this handy guide to help you get started.

    The Zipper Rescue kit.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I saw this product on Buzzfeed and knew I had to try it! I've had three favorite hoodies that broke 10+ years ago that had barely been worn when their zippers broke. Since we're all in quarantine I figured what better time to try to fix them. Well, I fixed all three, and I'm so excited to have my favorite hoodies back (10 years later 🤣). I'm glad I hung on to them and I'm thrilled I found this product!" —Jaki

    59. A six-piece stainless steel earwax cleaner kit that'll replace your cotton swabs and safely get your inner ear squeaky clean.

    This medical-grade earwax cleaner will get your excess earwax out (instead of pushing it deeper). They're effective, they're safe for cleaning out earwax, and they save on added waste.

    Promising review: "Getting tired of using Q-tips or ear washes? Well, this is certainly an alternative worth considering. These little guys are metal 'picks' that you can scrape all the gunk out of your ears without causing damage to them. My ears have never been cleaner." —Joshua Z Dabbs

    The scrap trap attached to a kitchen counter.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I sometimes get suckered into kitchen gadgets that I never use, but this thing is awesome! Keeps the counter clean, you can either scoop the parts you want to put in the trash into this (strawberry stems, onion peels, etc.), or you can put the parts you want to use in here to make them easier to dump into the pan (broccoli florets, chopped peppers, onions, etc.). Makes it so much easier than trying to scrape chopped veggies off the cutting board into the pan and spilling them all over. Love this thing!" —*BeckyC*

    Get it from Amazon for $17.42.

    61. A handy little reminder that'll make sure your favorite furry friend doesn't get a twofer come dinner time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was bigger than what we expected, maybe five to six inches tall, but honestly it isn't a big deal — it has solved the problem! One person can leave the house and the next person that is home knows whether or not the pooch has been fed. The sliders don't move on their own. I've included a photo so you can compare. Maybe I will get some of that removable tape and stick it to the wall, but for now it lays on a little table where we keep her treats, her feeding bowls are below it, so it worked out. Wish I would have bought this years ago!" —Shop Munki

    62. A handy little container of touch up paint to deal with all those chips and marks you've been meaning to tackle.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I decided to try this to cover up some of the chips of missing paint in my kitchen. It works perfectly. The bottle is a little bigger than a tube of Wite-Out, but it's going to last me a long time. The paint went on smoothly and dried quickly. I am very happy with this product." —JMar

    Promising review: "I really like seeing all of my nail polishes easily. I thought the price was a bit much, but it is well made and helpful. The compartments are 3.5" tall by nearly 1.5" wide. It fits larger bottles such as OPI and Orly well. Nicole bottles fit but just barely. The last row on each side is adjustable if you have a few larger bottles otherwise, three regular bottles of polish will fit in that row." —JB
