    33 Things You're Probably Going To Want On Your Next Bad Day

    🎢 You're taking one down. You sing a sad song just to turn it around. You say you don't know. You tell me don't lie. You work at a smile, and you go for a ride. 🎢

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A super effective Zombie Pack β€” a 15-minute face mask that'll help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, visibly lift up the skin, clear small breakouts, tighten enlarged pores, hydrate skin, improve texture by gently removing dead cells, and brighten your complexion.


    Promising review: "I own a salon and have worked in them for 19 years and never in my life have I used or seen something so amazing. I have read all about the Hanacure facial but it is expensive and always on backorder. This is the same thing AND IT WORKS. There is a veryyyy slight smell to it but hardly noticeable and not something I'd complain about. This has natural ingredients and boy does it work. It sucked everything out of my pores and shrunk them and all of the lines on my face are GONE. YES, GONE. Usually, I have to have Botox for my forehead. Well, not anymore that's for sure!!" β€”Aja Rieger Cooke

    Get a box of eight masks from Amazon for $15.90+.

    2. A pack of wine filters designed to remove sulfites and histamines from the one beverage you need on a poopy day β€” and maybe even the headaches you might get the day after.


    Promising review: "Finally can drink wine again. Not cheap and eight minutes seems like forever to swish this wand. But it is worth it. This works for me." β€”I'm just sayin

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $11.99.

    3. A linen pillow cover that's here to remind you no matter how the day is treating you, there are a lotta people out here who love you.


    Promising review: "My mom bought these for me as I was going off to college. I loved them and they go great with my decor!" β€”Paula

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in seven designs).

    4. Or a linen pillow cover to immortalize one of the greatest moments in TV history and that you'll use to rest your head on while you rewatch The Office for the 782nd time this week.

    Promising review: "By far the greatest pillow cover to ever exist. If Jesus needed a pillow cover, it would be this pillow. The Dalai Lama would murder for this pillow cover." β€”Matt Wood

    Get the cover and get the pillow to fill it with for $8.99 each from Amazon.

    5. A Migrastil Migraine Stick that uses aromatherapy and essential oils to help you deal with those overwhelming headaches.


    Promising review: "I have no earthly idea why this works, but it brought me back from the dead after an 11-day headache. I found it worked better to rub it all over my hot pack, zap it in the microwave, and wrap it around the base of my neck. The aromatherapy was great, and it dulled my headache enough to restore my will to live. 5/5" β€”Katie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    6. A meditation coloring book filled with 75 patterns and images designed by a freakin' neuroscientist to help focus your brain, improve your mood, and get your creative juices flowing.


    Promising review: "I thought it was stupid at first. BUT then I tried it. I colored at night before bed and it was very relaxing, clears the mind, and I was able to fall asleep faster! I highly recommend for anyone with anxiety, anyone that doesn't fall asleep easily, or just for fun." β€”Jacqueline S.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    7. A set of 50 adorably funny affirmation cards for help staying motivated on even the crappiest of days.


    Promising review: "Buy these for your friend, your grandma, your sibling, YOURSELF! These affirmations will light up your day and make you feel warm and fuzzy! I have yet to see someone draw one, read it, and not smile with delight. You will want to Instagram every single card because they are that good. I am gushing now and I think you get it, so just buy the cards already! :)" β€”Bex27

    Get them from Amazon for $13.82.

    8. Or a deck of beautifully designed affirmations for help remembering how to love yourself β€” seriously, give yourself a break! Bad days happen even to the most awesome of people (aka you).


    Promising review: "These cards are very uplifting after a difficult day. I can always rely on pulling a card out of the deck and having my spirits lifted." β€”Chriss

    Get it from Amazon for $13.48.

    9. A giant 750 ml wine glass you can fill with the optimal amount of a liquid you may *actually* need to help get through the day.


    Promising review: "I use it for wine." β€”Carina Howard Trotter

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. A very handy guide book to work out all of life's problems β€” all of them.


    Promising review: "If you need a good laugh or know someone who does β€” order this book. The flow charts are funny, imaginative, and smart. It's difficult to pick my favorite charts because they are all so good but 'Should I go to law school or start a rock band?', 'Am I too old to be and this party?', and 'Should I listen to the voices in my head?' are among my favorites. Sequel please!!" β€”Marianne LaBatto

    Get it from Amazon for $14.02.

    11. A pair of super opaque high-waisted leggings, because bad days call for stretchy pants β€” that's just facts.


    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5'5" and curvier. I was worried they were going to be too tight or see-through. However, that’s not the case! They are not see-through even after three washes so far. They are extremely soft and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is they are more of a muted black compared to some of my other leggings but it’s barely noticeable. I liked them so much I ordered a second pair. Def would recommend!" β€”nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and in 22 colors).

    12. An ergonomic and compact Shiatsu back and neck massager so you can literally deal with that pain in your neck.


    Promising review: "I bought one of these for a Christmas gift, everyone had to try it out, and everyone wanted it! I bought another almost immediately for someone who had raved about it at the Christmas Party and was going through a stressful spot. She was thrilled with the gift and said it was perfect for the circumstances. Much better than a casserole or vase of flowers. Both of these have been loved and greatly enjoyed! This is nice for targeted areas (lower back, shoulders, neck, glutes, legs, etc.) and I love that it has a heated and unheated option. Also love that it shuts itself down after 20 minutes, a good safety feature. I will say that the massage function is very firm, which is great for some areas and not so great for bonier spots β€” like ankles, wrists. This pillow is very firm, not really a pillow at all, which keeps the massaging area in place. It is comfortable to recline on, or prop a leg up on, but it's more for support than cushioning." β€”J. D. Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    13. An Amazon Fire TV Stick for a solid day in front of your TV doing absolutely nothing β€” sometimes that's the best medicine.


    Promising review: "For anyone wanting to turn an otherwise ~dead~ TV into something usable without a direct cable connection, and has Wi-Fi in their home, this stick is a wonder. It has all the conveniences of your Amazon Prime account built into it with free movies and apps. I personally bought this for a TV we had sitting around that wasn't being used. I hooked it up inside of my mom's room where she now enjoys watching movies regularly at night. She absolutely loved it, and it makes a great gift option too for a family or friend who's into entertainment. Even without being an Amazon Prime member you can get a great value out of this device with all the free apps it comes with. I'd highly recommend this powerful streaming stick to anyone who wants to add a fully workable TV, without the costs of cable, to their own bedroom or guests room they may have inside the house." β€”Lolifoxer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    14. A delicious box of British treats filled with 10 of the top-selling Cadbury British chocolate bars that you may or may not eat in one sitting.


    Promising review: "Yooooo these British people know what's up! Dat Double Decker doe 😱😱😱 But seriously, these candy bars are amazing! I had my doubts about the Picnic bar but it's really, really good. Personal favorite so far (still two I haven't eaten yet) was the Starbar. Peanut butter, caramel, rice crispy pieces, chocolate... What's not to love, really? Why the heck don't they sell these in America dammit?! I threw mine in the fridge as soon as I got them. I pull one out about a couple of minutes before I eat it, so it's still cool and doesn't melt all over the place. Works great. This chocolate really does MELT on contact with just about anything that's not refrigerated. Be forewarned, don't eat ANY of these candy bars while wearing white. But also keep it in mind when taking bites. Smaller bites are better. Otherwise, you might find yourself with a huge mouthful of semi-melted chocolate and nougat, trying not to drool. Er, that might potentially happen to someone other than me." β€”So & So So & So

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in a bag or box). You can also get a small tub filled with snack-sized treats.

    15. A timeless and totally seductive portrait β€” if this doesn't put a smile on your face, I dunno what will!


    Promising review: "I think it's funny... she wouldn't let me put it above the guest bed 'cause she doesn't want her parents to think I'm a weirdo." β€”Garret Feezel

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98. It doesn't come framed, so I'd suggest checking out some 24x36 frames.

    16. A five-pound bag of delicious 12-flavor gummi bears you can use as a yummy treat or as a free weight to get those reps in as you snack.


    Promising review: "I can't believe I'm taking the time to comment on gummi bears but these are just that good and I want everyone to know it. I've been buying these at the grocery store in 9-ounce bags for $3.59. This 5-pound bag is a great deal. Hard to fathom that they are fat-free. These are the best-textured and best-tasting gummis ever." β€”Jim Signor

    Get it from Amazon for $14.40.

    17. A cushioned foam acupressure mat and pillow set, because it's literally impossible to function at full potential when you're suffering from neck and back pain.


    Promising review: "This thing is awesome! Yes, it can hurt, especially on those really tight areas, but I love it anyway. You can feel the blood start racing through your body, great for circulation. Takes a few minutes to adjust your body to the right position when lying on your back. I lay on it in all different ways. Pull your legs up when on your back to get the middle of your back and spine. I love standing on it β€” the hip area hurts but I do it anyway. If you're really a trooper, kneel on it. I use it almost every day and I only wear underwear when I use it. This was a great price and it came with a bolster pillow. I've ordered more for friends." β€”Kelly

    Get the set from Amazon for $19.99 (available in nine colors).

    18. A pair of earrings for a discreet way to show everyone how notorious you are on these streets.


    Promising review: "I have gotten lots of compliments on these earrings. They look more expensive than they cost. I have sensitive ears and was worried they would irritate my ears, but they are also high quality. They could charge twice as much for these earrings and no one would say they are overpriced." β€”MJR

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    19. An inspiring weekly journal filled with activities, prompts, and encouragements to help you get it all out β€” and onto paper.

    Promising review: "This book is absolutely perfect to have as a guide, and it has so many creative writing prompts that inspire happiness. I haven't completed the entire book yet but I know I'll be sad when it ends. I hope she comes out with a second edition! This book really inspires you to find happiness in your life and to create more of it, and it's fun too." β€”Riley

    Get it from Amazon for $10.87.

    20. A pair of the cutest and coziest animal-shaped socks that'll keep you mooooving when you feel like giving up.


    Promising review: "You can never go wrong with fuzzy socks!" β€”Sydney16

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 13 designs).

    21. A set of letters you can write to your future self in anticipation of all the bad days life throws at you.


    Promising review: "This is a wonderful way to keep a personally written time capsule for yourself. If you're as sentimental as I am, you can see how this book will pay off in the future β€” in tears of joy, tears of sadness, tears of happiness." β€”benjamin bannister

    Get it from Amazon for $9.46.

    22. A delightful book filled with over 200 reminders of how absolutely incredible you really are.


    Promising review: "I love this little book. Perfect little pick-me-up! I purchased this after my daughter passed β€” these little notes can definitely help me get through the day." β€”Angie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    23. A mulberry silk eye mask for when all you really need to do is block out the haters who have really just f'ed up your day.


    Promising review: "This is totally worth the money. I have tried cheaper eye masks before that were a little lacking β€” they didn't stay put, were not dark enough to block out light, etc. I was surprised at how much more I would appreciate a better quality sleep mask when I received this. It's a large size, so it covers enough of your face to block out any light. It's very dark and opaque, and is thicker than any mask I've used. The plushness and silkiness really make it feel luxurious. I slept great with it on last night!" β€”Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 20 colors).

    24. Becoming by Michelle Obama β€” it provides an inspiring look into the former FLOTUS' life and the journey she took into becoming the icon so many see her as today.

    Promising review: "I started reading and couldn't put it down, finished it literally 24 hours after delivery. Michelle Robinson Obama's story is one of challenges met, hard work tempered with good sense, and above all, how a few key people can support a young girl and elevate her, so that she, in turn, can elevate others. It is a wonderful, heartfelt, true story of HOPE in a world gone far too cynical." β€”Linda L. Leiby

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89.

    25. A pack of lavender essential oil towelettes to give even the germ-iest of situations a calming and relaxing scent.


    Promising review: "I love these towelettes! I bought the lavender scent and they smell lovely! Not too overwhelming, and very soothing. I've also been keeping a few in my purse for any emergencies or just to freshen up after being in the muggy New York weather." β€”MissMel821

    Get it from Amazon for $7 (available in four scents).

    26. Gmorning, Gnight!, an encouraging little book filled with affirmations and pep talks that'll help remind you of just how awesome you are!


    Promising review: "I expected nothing except delightful wordplay from Lin-Manuel Miranda, but between the genuine feeling of being seen and understood that these little pep talks give the reader and the humorous, perfectly suited illustrations by Jonny Sun, Gmorning, Gnight! is one of those books that I'll read over and over again. I pre-ordered and received my copy today...and I finished it in one sitting. Please buy a copy for yourself, your friends, or whoever the heck in your life or on the subway who needs a smile. So happy." β€”Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98 (also available in Spanish).

    27. A seven-setting shower head designed with a built-in reservoir handle that has a refillable cartridge pre-filled with minerals and active carbon β€” you can refill these cartridges with your choice of bath salts, aromatherapy minerals, or water-treatment granules. It's all the joys of a relaxing bath without having to marinate in your own juices!!!!


    It can be used with or without cartridges as a regular shower head. Works with an overhead or handheld shower. Designed with a 4" chrome face. The seven settings include rain, pulsating massage, hydro-mist, rain/massage, rain/mist, economy rain. No tools required for installation to any standard overhead shower arm. It comes with two pre-filled refillable cartridges β€” one with aromatherapy minerals and one with active carbon for water purification (each lasts for up to 90 days). You can refill cartridges with your favorite aromatherapy bath salts and minerals or purchase replacement cartridge kits.

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this. The shower water really is very soft and silky β€” without conditioner, my hair is now softer than it was with conditioner and regular shower water! I can definitely tell that it makes the shower water better quality. It feels very silky on your skin. It's soothing. This showerhead has softer settings β€” even a fine mist! It's much more skin-friendly to those with sensitive skin. I've been using it for two-three months now and I'm very pleased that I made a good investment in this." β€”SherryTexasNative

    Get it from Amazon for $19.59.

    28. An inspiring vinyl wall decal that'll be your daily reminder to leave your house and kick some serious ass.

    Promising review: "Holds up well, easy to apply, long-lasting, and easy to remove when done. I used this in a classroom on the front whiteboard. Easily applied early in the school year β€” bold/solid black. Stayed up with no problem. Easily removed at the end of the school year. I would buy again, the quality was good and the words are NOT individual letters that you have to apply one at a time. The whole phrase is on clear cellophane that you apply all at once and then remove the cellophane. So easy!" β€”M. Brooks

    Get it from Amazon for $1.99.

    29. A plush and ultra comfy unicorn bathrobe, because some days the only way you're gonna get through it, is by curling yourself up in colorful magic and binge-watching 800 hours of Parks and Recreation.


    Promising review: "I got the large because I wanted a longer-length robe. This is super nice quality β€” thick, soft, and warm to lounge around at home in the winter. Wash it first to try to get rid of the lint or most of it." β€”luvluv

    Get it from Amazon for $16.88+ (available in M-L and in nine designs).

    30. A non-dated daily planner with weekly and monthly review pages including pages to create a vision board and mindmap so you always remember why you're doing what you're doing.


    Bonus: This is our BuzzFeed Reviews affordable pick for best productivity planner!

    Promising review: "Love this planner. I love the free-form. You can skip weeks you know you're out of town or whatever and save those pages for another time. I think my favorite part of this planner is the first two pages. Everything to do with this planner is how YOU make it. For me, it also helped (kind of made) me reflect on things I really do want and goals I really do want to achieve. Words of affirmation was difficult for me to fill out so I looked them up online and wrote the ones that spoke to me most. How I want to/should be seeing myself." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in four colors).

    31. A loveable little ceramic planter complete with an adorable plant to keep you company on even the prickliest of days.


    Promising review: "Cutest little aloe plant! It came healthy and still growing. I love that I only have to water it every couple of weeks. LOL!" β€”William Garvin

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    32. An uber-relaxing lavender candle that'll burn for up to 65 soothing hours β€” because, let's be real, sometimes bad days turn into bad weeks.


    Promising review: "I adore this scent! Distinctive but subtle and raises my mood with the soothing scent wafting through the air. It really seems high quality. I got the lavender one. If you are a candle, scent, a 'nose' type, you will enjoy these!" β€”BGrace

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (available in 16 scents).

    33. A pack of collagen-infused eye masks to help combat your lack-of-sleep look and any other general under-eye puffiness that tends to add to your bad day., Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is a MUST for anyone who struggles with puffy/dark under eyes! I have horrible under-eye bags thanks to poor genetics and wearing eyeglasses my entire life. At some point, I'm going to have plastic surgery but I will be using these eye masks every day until I can afford the time and money for the surgery. I've enclosed an ugly (but very honest) picture of the before and after results from using this product this morning. I woke up and immediately applied the eye mask. I then wore it for about 25 minutes under my eyeglasses while I went about my household chores until the pads completely dried. When I removed the mask, my under-eye area was looking way less puffy and much brighter than when I woke up. I love this product so much that I'm ordering five more packages today so I have a supply handy." β€”Mrs L
