    1. A very handy boot hanging file to make storing all that floppy footwear a little easier.

    The Whitmor Hanging Boot File

    Promising review: "This product is AWESOME! I didn't have any trouble fitting my tall boots (1-2 inch heel knee-high boots), and only had trouble with them falling out if I tilted it too much one way or the other. Otherwise, they fit in the pockets perfectly. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone wanting to organize and store tall boots in their closet. I bought two of them — one for my tall boots and one for my and my husband's cowboy boots. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!!" —WisconsinMom

    Get it from Amazon for $7.34 (fits three pairs of boots).

    2. A pack of adhesive cable clips that'll finally detangle all your cords while making sure that they're easily accessible.


    Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" —Nelis Perez

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $7.97.

    3. A pack of hydrocolloid, tea tree, calendula oil, and CICA-infused acne patches – they'll easily blend into your skin while they spot treat your pimples.

    A customer review photo of the acne patches

    Promising review: "The amount of gunk this took out of my pores AFTER washing and exfoliating my face is literally crazy!! I have very oily skin and acne (cystic and 'normal' acne). Also works great on popped pimples. Sucks all the crap out!!" —Amanda

    Get a pack of 40 patches from Amazon for $8.50 (available in small and extra large sizes).

    4. A genius and super discreet three-outlet power strip that's designed to look like your already existing plug while helping you keep the cords organized.


    Promising review: "Did y’all know they made these?!? Okay, I was moving some furniture around in the guest room and my beautiful bride just wasn’t happy with how far the dresser stood out from the wall because of the TV plug. She said there has to be some way to fix that in this day and time. Know what? She was right! I did some searching on the old internet and found these. I put it on the outlet behind the dresser and shoved it into place. Just so y’all know, the wall plug is indeed flat and it’s designed to cover the whole plug when you use it. Please don’t ask me how thin or thick it is, cause I already put it behind the dresser and I dang shore ain’t about to pull it out to measure it for someone’s question. Just know that it’s flatter’n a bug in a windscreen and works great!" —James P.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95+ (available in three sizes and with or without surge).

    5. A delightful five-year journal that has you answer one question every day of the year, and come back to the same questions on the same day for five years.


    Promising review: "I love this journal. I'm not the person to keep a diary, but I always love to reminisce about past memories. This is the perfect median. Some questions are very thought-provoking ('Are you in love?' 'Who are you fooling?') and some are a little lighter ('What's in your fridge right now?' 'Are you wearing socks?'). If you answer these with one word, you're probably not going to have fun with this journal or have anything to really look back on. If you go in-depth with your answers (i.e., 'Are you wearing socks?' 'Yes! Two! My heater broke and it's a blizzard!'), you'll be able to really have something to look back on. All and all, I'm seven months into this journal and I love it so much. I'm excited to continue filling it out for the next four and a half years!" —Kiersten

    Check out our full review of the Q&A a Day: 5-Year Journal!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    6. A soothing, light, and clean aromatherapy mist you can spray onto your linens for a relaxing and rejuvenating scent that'll help put you at ease.

    ASUTRA Lavender and Chamomile Essential Oil Blend

    Promising review: "Love this spray! I spray it on my pillow and sheets before I lay down and it has such a light but great scent! Calms and soothes me so I can fall asleep." —CandeceV

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in six scents).

    7. A tube of Nerdwax for an all-natural solution to preventing your glasses from sliding down your face or slipping off.


    Promising review: "We saw this on Shark Tank, and thought we'd give it a shot. The lip balm-sized tube is perfect for travel. Walking on a beach with sunglasses on, sweat makes them slide down. Just a couple of dabs of this Nerdwax keeps them in place. It also worked well-keeping glasses up during snow blowing in a recent blizzard. So while I'd rather use it walking on a beach, it did the job when I was shoveling snow as well. Is it costly? Yes. But does it work? Yes!" —DeFelice Family

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    8. A two-sided jewelry carrier with 32 clear vinyl pockets and 18 hook-and-loops closures — you just need to add a standard hanger and you can basically put it anywhere.

    A before and after customer review photo of their jewelry perfectly organized

    Promising review: "I needed something that would save me space but where I could still see all of my jewelry. These things are extremely durable. I bought two of them and have probably 50 or so necklaces on one side and maybe 30 pairs of earrings on the other side. There is not a single tear in it. In the other one, I keep nail polishes. It is very convenient because you can see all the colors, and it does not take up that much space." —Nellie F.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in three colors).

    9. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food spikes designed to help give your leafy green friends the yummy nutrients they need (for up to two months) — and since now you'll have a plant that doesn't die the second it comes into your home, you'll need to keep buying these nutritious little sticks.

    A hand placing the food spikes into a plant

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became greener and more healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $2.98.

    10. A far-reaching dryer vent lint brush that'll get deep in there to scoop out all the gross debris that clogs up your vents.


    Promising review: "I clean my filter faithfully every time I use my dryer! This was what I collected after not cleaning BELOW the filter for 2.5 years! Who knew below the filter! Can we say ‘fire hazard’!" —Anne Jacobs

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    11. 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.


    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 five shades).

    12. A bottle of Optix 55 Fog Gone spray which can be used to help clear up the fogginess your glasses experience when you're wearing a mask — I actually do own this, and it works pretty well. The key is to make sure and gently rub it in with a lens cloth. From my experience, it doesn't stop your glasses from fogging but rather it makes the fog disappear SUPER quickly. You do have to use it every day and it's not 100% but it's WAY better than just going out there with nothing.

    A customer review photo of them holding a bottle of Optix 55 Fog Gone spray

    Promising review: "I think I let the name hype up my expectations. I was expecting no fog at all. Afterthought, I’m not sure if that would ever be completely possible. Instead with this spray applied my glasses will fog up and instantly clear up — the fog does not linger on my lenses. I’ve been using it at work and it works out I can still see the fog literally moves across my lenses and clears up. After using this spray for a few days I’m completely satisfied. I will say I work 12-hour shifts and I have to apply this spray twice throughout my shift, usually at the 10 hr mark. I do really like this spray." —JSnyder

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in three sizes).

    13. A nondated daily planner with weekly and monthly review pages to help you master your productivity and time management.

    The cover and the inside layout of the daily 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." —Amazon Customer

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

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


    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

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    15. A tiered hanger designed specifically to hold your favorite camis and tanks that are typically kinda hard to store.

    Promising review: "I love the crap out of this thing! I have so many camis that I use as undershirts for work and they were always being folded up and crammed into a drawer, taking up way too much space. After putting away half of my shirts on this two-pack, I knew I needed to buy another pack! It's so easy to take the shirts on and off without messing around with any of the others. This organizer is perfect for my needs in freeing up a drawer and taking up little space in my closet." —Tessa

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.69.

    16. A jar of creamy Cetaphil Pro's Dermacontrol Purifying Clay Mask made with bentonite clay and designed to help those of us with big pores and sensitive skin.

    A customer review photo of the clay mask

    This mask has changed my life. Which I know sounds so dramatic but it's true. It has a very creamy and cooling consistency which I apply with a face mask brush (but it comes with a small applicator), I let it sit for about 20 minutes and then remove with a face sponge soaked in warm water. The difference in my skin — my sensitive, acne-prone skin — is astonishing after just one use. My pores shrunk down so much! I went from having what looked like a strawberry for a nose to just a regular, smooth nose! I haven't shut up about it since I started using it. Now I apply it every three days, it's honestly my new religion. I wish it came in a bigger jar so I could cover my entire body in it. I'm not even joking. I love it so hard. I will never stop using this mask. NEVER.

    Promising review: "This product goes on nicely with the little application paddle that comes included. Kept it on for about 10 minutes and washed off with warm water. I was very impressed with how smooth my face felt afterward. My pores seemed to be much smaller and I was really impressed with the results. Great product!" —Dazza

    Get it from Amazon for $11.33.

    17. An adjustable and 100% cotton The School of Life apron because it's about time you cleaned up your act in the kitchen.

    The apron that says, "I'm a mess"
    Perdita Shop

    Perdita Shop is a woman-owned biz based in San Francisco, California.

    Get it from Perdita Shop for $26.

    18. A 52-week gratitude journal filled with prompts and space to write out everything you're thankful for — because sometimes we're so focused on what we don't have that we forget about everything we do have.

    The gratitude journal on a desk

    Promising reviews: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched so many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, was straightforward, and was exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept and I've only been doing it for a week but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for, find myself adding lines below the three provided and writing in the margins...all because I want to!" —silkeymilkey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. A pack of Vicks VapoShower, Shower Bomb Tablets that'll help turn any steamy shower into the sexiest thing your congested, stressed, and aching body has ever seen. It uses aromatherapy to help fill the air with eucalyptus and menthol.

    Promising review: "I love this product because I can wake up, toss one of these in the shower, and it’s a full steamy eucalyptus cloud that opens my nasal passages and lets me start the day. Doesn’t leave any trace of residue and the scent fades away once the shower is over. I definitely use these during allergy season or when I wake up stuffy or congested and it seems to help and soothe. Buy a couple because you will get addicted." —JL

    Get 12 shower tablets from Amazon for $20.47.

    20. A pack of multi-color divider sticky notes — new semester, new you! And that means staying on top of all your readings, notes, classes...the whole gamut.

    One of the sticky notes inside a notebook

    Promising review: "I happened to stumble upon this product while buying textbooks for school. I am an English education grad student so it's important for me to keep all my notes and readings organized as best as possible. There was honestly no great system for this...UNTIL NOW! These sticky notes are big enough to write actual thoughts AND I can conveniently write what the note is for on the tab! So much time saved flipping through my notes. At first glance I thought I would have to go through the colors in the order they came in which bummed me out a little bit, but then I discovered that at the end of each color there is a non-sticky back so you can take the little booklet apart or flip to the color you want without wasting any!" —suddenproximity

    Get a pad of 60 notes from Amazon for $3.59.

    21. A freakin' amazing app called Digit that sneakily helps you save money: It works by analyzing your spending and taking small, random amounts (so small you won't even notice) out of your account every day.

    App Store

    I use this app and it's honestly such a little treat. I rarely notice when it takes funds out of my account and every few months when I check in on my savings in the app I'm shocked to see how much money I've racked up. I am currently trying to save for a totally overpriced handbag and this little guy is making it super easy and doesn't make me feel bad for taking money away from one thing for another.

    22. A super sleek, lightweight, shower-safe, and Bluetooth enabled Quip toothbrush designed with an app to help you monitor and track your oral health.

    23. An ion generating Revlon one-step airbrush capable of drying, straightening, and giving your hair the volume you dream of with just one tool., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have 3A/3B curls (I included a pic.) I watched A LOT of reviews on YouTube for this product before I committed to buying it because that's always smart to do when you don't want to waste money. But OMG my results came out better than all the reviews I saw with the girls that had similar hair to mine! The trick is to keep rolling it a few times before you let the strand go. Just like the stylists do when they blow-dry your hair at salons with the large rolling brush. I was able to straighten my hair in 45 minutes on my first time and I could probably do it in less time next time because now I know how to use it. I was worried about my roots not getting straightened like in some of the reviews I saw but nope my roots came out perfect! The trick to that is to hold it at the roots for a few seconds. After a strand is straight and completely dry I'll switch it to cool and pass it through another time. If you want your ends straight and not flipped you'll need a flat iron but I prefer them flipped anyways. Be careful not to burn your hands by accidentally touching the blower. Also, your wrist/hands will get tired but it's still worth it! LOL! Oh, I've also somehow managed to turn the switch accidentally a few times while using it. My hair is amazingly soft and super shiny. The biggest pro for me is that it'll only take me 10 minutes to freshen my hair every day after that first day! Best styling product ever!" —BIANCA

    Get it from Amazon for $41.88+ (available in five colors).

    24. Or try an investment-worthy Dyson Airwrap that might come with a hefty price tag but its assortment of attachments will give you everything — literally EVERYTHING! — you need to straighten out your do.


    The kit comes complete with styler, 1.2" and 1.6" Airwrap barrel, firm smoothing brush, soft smoothing brush, round volumizing brush, pre-styling dryer, storage case, non-slip mat, and filter cleaning brush.

    25. And if you're looking to keep your curls fresh a Q-Redew hand-held steamer will help give you a quick refresh — it'll add some moisture to your dry locks.


    Promising review: "This handheld steamer is amazing. I use it so much. It makes my hair feel soft and detangles so well. I love to use it when I want to rehydrate my hair or when I want to deep condition my hair. This steamer is great! Definitely recommend it." —Jamila

    Get it from Q-Redew for $79.

    26. A felt bedside caddy you'll wish you bought sooner — add it to the side of your bed to make your devices, books, and remotes super easy to reach and find.

    The bedside caddy positioned on the side of the bed

    Promising review: "I love this caddy — it fits snugly between the mattresses and has never fallen out. I put my Kindle and iPod with earbuds in here, so I can easily find them without knocking things over on the bedside table. It's sturdy, and seems to be lasting well in the six months or so that I have used it — still looks like the day I got it. Great purchase!" —K.B.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50.

    27. A set of tear- and water-resistant budget envelopes for help tracking all your expenses and organizing your bills.


    Promising review: "I take money out once a month and when it’s gone that’s it until next week. I waited to see how these were going to hold up. Going on month four and they still look brand-new. Special durable paper. These are great. I did not use them all. I have one for groceries week, fuel, vacation, and travel for work." —Yoga4life

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $11.98.

    28. A jar of TICARVE Dust Cleaning Gel perfect for getting deep into every dusty, crumby crevice in your car and leaving it totally spotless.

    @lollyjaneblog / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "When I first saw this product I thought 'No way is that really going to work' but for the price, it was worth a try. I got it within two days of purchasing it — and it truly works. I immediately used it on my laptop keyboard and my PC keyboard. It really did pull all of the dust and whatnot out from in between the keys. It feels damp to your skin and doesn't really leave a residue, the smell is not harsh and is really barely there (not like an antiseptic or harsh chemical at all). I really like it." —BRickard

    Get it from Amazon for $8.69.

    29. A Sleevz facemask designed specifically for people who wear glasses — I saw this mask on TikTok and was honestly amazed at how it prevented glasses from fogging up. It hangs on the arms of the glasses and wraps around your chin using a magnet.

    30. An in-drawer bamboo block to keep your knives safely organized and accessible.

    An open drawer with the bamboo block installed

    Promising review: "I love this product! Keeps my knife drawer organized and makes it easy to find the one I need because I keep them in a particular order. I purchased the one that holds 12 and now I wish I went with the 16 because I do want to add more knives to my collection. There is enough space to grab the knives comfortably. It would be fantastic if there was a slot for scissors and a cleaver somehow but overall, very satisfied with the product and plan on purchasing another." —Zoe

    Get it from Amazon for $26.42+ (available for 12 or 16 knives).

    31. A pack of Pantene Rescue Shots Hair Ampoules Treatment that'll target your damaged hair and help smooth the look of split ends.,

    Promising review: "My hair was processed and damaged, my husband would say that it feels like a straw bale. This little ampule changed my life. After one use, my hair was soft as silk, shiny, and manageable. It was completely unreal how this product transformed my hair and I knew I had to find more. I bought two boxes on Amazon and will continue to use this religiously. For something so inexpensive, it is a game-changer. I now have my friends on the Rescue train and they are just as impressed." —melissa michael

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $4.97.

    32. A 144 page, A-Z tabbed password journal so you can have all your log-in information in one secure place — just make sure it's in a secure place.

    Promising review: "We all respect internet privacy. But what happens if you die? Simple issues like your Netflix account become huge stumbling blocks to your survivors. Keep a record of your passwords. Maybe you're young and don't think about ever passing away? Need to get on Facebook after two years of silence, pay your cable bill, bank checking account password...last year's Turbo Tax, etc. Who can remember all those passwords? Yeah, I wrote it on that back of that envelope...'Honey, where's that envelope?' STOP!!! THIS is where you will record your user names and passwords. Do yourself and loved ones a big favor and purchase this book." —David D.

    The rose quartz roller and scraper

    Promising review: "What a gorgeous-looking box. I already knew about these rollers and their natural cooling/healing properties. It was so relaxing and amazing using this roller and gua sha. It felt like a mini spa facial, but at home! The instruction card was super easy to read and follow. Overall great product. I would definitely buy as a gift for friends. It's the cutest thing and so useful too. Everyone should have one of these in their beauty arsenal." —AmazonCustomer

    Get the set from Amazon for $17.99.

    34. A handcrafted, all-natural coconut lip scrub, 'cause there isn't anything more luxurious than super soft lips.

    A person holding the jar of lip scrub

    Promising review: "My lips have been so extremely chapped for the past few months from biting my lips constantly and from the harsh weather conditions. I would constantly moisturize my lips with whatever I had (lip balms, Vaseline, you name it) and NOTHING was working, so I knew that it was time to start looking into lip scrubs. I have to say that my lips haven't felt so soft like this in so long. On the container, it says to use a pea-size amount, and that really is all you need. A little really goes a long way. If you are someone who doesn't want (or doesn't have the resources) to make a homemade scrub then — coming from a current college student who definitely doesn't have the resources or time to make their own — get this and it will be worth it!!" —Shaneil

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (vegan and cruelty-free). And if you really wanna treat yourself try it with these silicone lip brushes.

    35. A 20 oz. water bottle designed to help you keep track of exactly how much water you're drinking and make sure you're staying hydrated — just slide the colorful bands up with every finished bottle!,

    Promising review: "Love this water bottle. The concept of using the bands to help you keep track of how much you've drunk is GENIUS. I HATE using apps because I forget to put what I've drunk in after I'm done drinking it. This is so simplistic but so great. Drink a whole bottle, sweet! Put a band on your wrist. They're cute, colorful, and comfy. If you have a lot of arm hair they might pinch and tug your arm. This bottle isn't meant to be tipped over though. It leaked a little when it would fall over with the straw, which makes sense. Duh! The straw isn't airtight to the bottle. Cute, stylish, and simplistic in its ways of keeping track of water intake. Love." —Ana T.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

    37. A weekly student planner designed with spaces for assignments, priorities, class schedules, monthly highlights — honestly it's an amazing little organizer and even though I'm not in school I kinda wanna buy it to help organize my life.

    The cover and inside of the student planner

    Promising review: "This planner is great for students! I ordered this as a replacement for my seventh-grade student, and it is perfectly geared towards his school life. It has places for teachers to initial as a hall pass, plenty of room to write reminders/assignments, and even a place for goals. I also like that there are no dates in the planner, which means since I ordered it in February I didn't lose half of its value. I will definitely order another one of these for next year." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    38. A three-compartment lid organizer so you can neatly store all your storage bin tops.

    The lid organizer placed inside a kitchen drawer

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this storage container. Sounds silly, but it changed my life. No longer do I have to play storage container Jenga! No more stuff falling out of the cabinet every time I open the cupboard. Now I can stack my lids in the organizer and my storage containers fit nicely on the shelf — I have a lot of storage containers. I would definitely buy this again and again. Great product!" —Laura H.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.79+ (available in four sizes).

    39. A discreet bidet, because I can almost guarantee it'll change your life!

    The bidet on the toilet

    Promising review: "Being the typical American, I had been suspicious of bidets since I saw my first one on Crocodile Dundee. However, as I age, my dexterity at 'taking care of business' has gotten compromised, and I worry about having that 'not so clean' feeling while also having to use too much toilet paper. (There's a shortage, after all!) I saw a product like this on social media and did some research and ultimately chose this one. When it arrived, it sat in the box in my bathroom for over a month waiting for me to overcome my embarrassment and ask someone in my family to install it for me (which took about 10 minutes). I approached the installed product cautiously at first and experimented with proper butt placement. After a few adjustments to my sitting technique and a huge puddle of water when one of my grandkids decided to see what that knob did, I am happy to report my tushy is as clean as if I just got out of a shower. I highly recommend this product. In fact, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!" —Lisa Walker

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two finishes).

    40. A handy book filled with useful and unexpected tips on how to make your life just a little less of a mess.

    The cover of The Little Book of Life Hacks: How to Make Your Life Happier, Healthier, and More Beautiful

    Promising review: "Bought this sight-unseen as a gift for someone per the recommendation of a friend, and I'm SO glad I did. It's the sweetest damn book you'll ever see. The content is fun and helpful, and the illustrations are charming. I immediately ordered one for myself and this will be my go-to gift for friends!" —Whoopwhoop

    41. A cushioned foam acupressure mat and pillow set, because it's literally impossible to function at your 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 — 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." —K***y

    42. A set of silky-soft satin pillowcases designed to help keep your hair from frizzing, your skin from breaking out, and your dreams sweet.

    The satin pillow cases in dark gray

    Promising review: "I love this SOOO MUCH! The hype for silk pillowcases is real! I have a FULL head of hair that is very long, which has also been processed to death. Since my hair is always so dry due to all of the color processes, I like to air-dry it to save it from being damaged further by the heat. Well, my hair would always look like a frizzy mess the morning after, even though I saturated my hair with leave-in treatments and treatment oils. Finally, I decided to try out a silk pillowcase and I'm obsessed! I can now rock my air-dry hair the next morning without looking like I have a rat's nest on my head. The only thing I wish this had is zippers. Since silk is slippery, the cover tends to fall off the pillows often. Other than that, this is perfect. I'm going to bring a pillowcase with me when I travel!" —Rubicant

    43. An anti-dandruff shampoo so you're flake-free, especially now that you might be throwing in a few darker colors into your wardrobe., Amazon

    Promising review: "I wish I discovered this product earlier. Took me six months of suffering from severe dandruff and white spots on my face. I was a week away from a visit to the dermatologist. After trying a lot of products and creams that didn't work, I decided to give it a try. And with just one wash, my life was changed. This is my only shampoo now. Been using it for almost a year now and no more white spots on my face (itchy, flaky, and terrible) or the worst, thick itchy dandruff." —Beverly Ramirez

    Promising review: "These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don't always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. These greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can't beat the price!" —Ash Bash

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying two of these blankets! I haven’t slept through the night for almost six years, thanks to a difficult pregnancy and baby, my body is trained to only sleep a couple of hours at a time. I tried everything, and am shocked that a weighted blanket worked so magically! From restless legs, insomnia, anxiety, it is an instant fix! I have it draped over me while I write this and it feels amazing!" —Jenny

    50. A pack of melatonin, 5-HTP, and GABA filled Dream Water packets that's said to help promote sleep and relaxation at bedtime.

    A box of the Dream Water

    Promising review: "I have radical insomnia and pretty much nothing works. When I first discovered dream water it was hard to find — I couldn't locate it anywhere. It was also expensive because I need to take it every night. $3 a bottle put me at $90 a month. So I bought the three ingredients and combined them, but they did not work that well. I still have some Gaba powder, lol. Their proprietary formula is a work of art. The usual price I pay for a night's sleep is next-day grogginess. Not with this stuff. The powder works fine and is cheaper. It's a lifesaver." —Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "I have had this for a few months now. I don’t think I’ve missed any medicine since I started using it. I am on 10 different meds, which I take several times a day. This is perfect. I love that I can put the day in my purse or pocket, and I am set. As a side note, when you pull out your new pill pod you know what day it is. LOL. Mom saw mine and ordered one. Everyone who I’ve shown it to is sold. It’s a great product. So far it is one of the few products I have rated 5 stars." —Karen R. Starken

    53. An LED essential oil diffuser aromatherapy machine so you can fill your space with a lovely and relaxing fragrance it deserves.

    The aromatherapy machine

    Promising review: "First-time diffuser user but I know aromatherapy works. I had been using candles and pillow/linen spray to help me sleep better due to chronic pain. Spray only lasts a short duration and I am worried to leave the candles burning while I'm sleeping. I read the review and this seems like what I need to get the aromatherapy during the night without the risk of burning down my home. I like the color-changing feature too. It is soothing to look at and doubles as a night light for me. I used the intermittent setting so it would last longer. Easy to operate, essential oils not included but there are a ton of choices out there." —WM in Denver
