    41 Things That Made Me Say, “Why Don’t I Own That Already?”

    It's amazing to me that I've been able to function without every single one of these things in my life.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. 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 — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of ultra-comfortable cuffed sweatpants designed with an elastic waist, pockets, and a stretchy material — you will literally live in these.


    Promising review: "I have bought several of these pants because they are the most comfortable things I've ever owned. I'm not a fashionista, but I'm aware that wearing sweatpants out of the house is not universally accepted, despite the majority of us doing it. However, I feel confident wearing these with a T-shirt or tank top whilst going out and about, and looking put together. I also got these because I have a tough time finding pants that don't push on my bladder too heavily like the jeans or slacks that I wear to work. I have interstitial cystitis and these pants are soft and fit well enough that I need not worry about any issues arising in that department. I'm not the biggest fan of all of the designs, but I'm sure there's a design out there for everyone. Or you can get the plain ones. Whichever works for you." —Featherpin

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 73 colors).

    2. A pack of disposable Houseplant Sticky Stakes that'll attract and trap whiteflies, fungus gnats, blackflies, thrips, fruit flies, midges, and other flying insects without using any pesticides., Amazon

    Promising review: "Holy cow these suckers work! I'm so grossed out by the result, but at the same time, I have a sick sense of satisfaction. I used these in my house plants that are breeding fungus gnats like crazy. I used them in conjunction with beneficial nematodes, and they definitely cut down on the number of gnats in our house. I'm buying another package of sticky traps as soon as I finish this review!" —Megan

    Get a pack of seven traps from Amazon for $5.14.

    3. A convenient teeth whitening gel pen made with a soft-tip brush to makes application breeze., Amazon

    Promising review: "I apply before bed and it's definitely helping to whiten my teeth. I'm a dental assistant and in the office, we use 21% peroxide so this is even stronger. It helps if you have a nightguard to apply over the peroxide so it stays on longer. I had no issues with the way the pen dispenses the gel, I liked it. It was easy to precisely brush onto specific teeth without getting it on my gums. I use it a couple of times a week to reduce tooth sensitivity because of its strong stuff. Follow directions and apply and let it sit on teeth as long as possible for maximum whitening. No bad taste or mess." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    4. A pair of chic pointy-toed slides great for the office or when you're feeling like taking a walk on the wild side.


    Promising review: "Finally professional-looking shoes that will work for me! I was getting tired of wearing plain oxfords and heels around the office and wanted something easy and comfortable to wear. This pair of shoes is perfect for the purpose. It's almost like a slipper appropriate for the office. The shoes are very comfortable like slippers and they are sturdy enough for the streets of New York City. It has a really cute design and nice polished black finish to still give off that office lady vibe. I am very happy with the purchase and looking forward to wearing them around the office!" —Kay Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes 5-10 and in five colors).

    5. A genius pack of graphite pencils you can plant!! The bottom (where the eraser would be) is filled with seeds, just use the pencils up until they're too short and then plant them for a gorgeous (and maybe yummy) green treat.


    Promising review: "I bought these pencils originally as a gift but after sharpening them, I ended up keeping them for myself. These pencils are circular in design, meaning once they are so small that you can no longer use them to write, they serve a new purpose as a plant. It’s a wonderful concept!" —Erica D. Medrano

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $14.95.

    6. A set of 14K gold-filled wire cuffs designed so you don't ever have to actually get your cartilage pierced — 'cause it's just too painful and honestly, you don't want to be stuck with the weird indent that a real piercing leaves you with once you take it out...not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything.


    Promising review: "Such a great earring, many people don't even realize it's a cuff! It took me a little while to figure out how to put it on correctly (tip: the open ends should face toward your face, and the closed or rounded off end/part of the earring clamps behind the ear — try clamping it around the thinnest part of the ear and then moving it along the ear, squeezing it tighter, or pulling it apart a little, to adjust comfort). I've showered in it, slept in it, blow-dried my hair in it, worked out in it for about a month, it still looks nice and golden and hasn't budged or tugged or been painful in any way! Again, it does take a little bit of playing around with to get it on properly, but once you've achieved that, it's an incredible piece and a great alternative to another set of piercings!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $17.70.

    7. A magically realistic sleep tee, because this is what you should be wearing past midnight — not one shoe and a messy dress while you roam the streets.


    Get it from Asos for $32 (available in sizes 0-14).

    8. A stainless steel bottle sealer designed with a built-up pressure pump so all your favorite bubbly beverages will stay that way.


    Promising review: "Loved this product. So easy to use. Everything is in one — no plug with pump. It stays on and keeps the bubbles in champagne and all carbonated wines. It does not pop off or leak if you lay the bottle back on its side in the refrigerator. It's metal and very strong. Love that you just need to pump the top to take out the air. Great for picnics and BYOB's. Plus it DOES NOT LEAK!" —C. Glidden

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    9. A tube of Wrinkle Paste — an anti-bacterial formula you can use to protect your doggie's wrinkles, remove tear stains, and help eliminate any stinkiness.


    Promising review: "Bought this for my four-year-old 70 lb. English bulldog. He’s always had an odor from his wrinkles. Used it on his wrinkles two to three times and the smell is completely gone. I’ve been using wet wipes for years to clean the area but it never got rid of the odor the way this wrinkle paste does. I’ll be using this for a long time." —Kpop

    Get it from Amazon for $20.72.

    10. A pack of adhesive cable clips that'll finally detangle all your cords and have them easily accesible.


    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 $6.95.

    11. A delightfully sarcastic coloring book filled with so many punny and snarky doodles for you fill in.


    Promising review: "This coloring book was great, I love that it had the sarcastic funny sayings without having a cuss word in every single one (only one has a cuss word), making it a perfect gift! The pages were good quality and it came quickly, nothing bad about it to me!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    12. A sparkling jeweled padded headband that'll finally give you the headgear your royal bloodline deserves.


    Get it from Zara for $29.90.

    13. A tie-waist batwing sweater dress, because once those temps drop you're gonna be so happy you have this in your fashion arsenal.,

    Promising review: "I love everything about this sweater dress. Fabulous orange color, great workmanship, and thick knit feel. It fits better than I expected. I'm 5'5" and normally wear a size 18, I purchased the XL. The hem rests about 3" above my knees and I'll be wearing it with tights/slim fit pants and ankle boots, etc. You can cover up or reveal as much as you wish or don't wish — this is a classic piece and a must-have. I'm going for the blue one next." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    14. An adorable anglerfish mug that'll light up your life every morning when you need to drown yourself in caffeine.


    Promising review: "This mug is super cute, the lavender is a little lighter in person than what it’s shown in the picture but super cute anyway. It came well protected inside the box with clear instruction to be hand wash only (I usually prefer dishwasher-safe items but couldn’t resist this one). It’s a very unique mug, holds a great amount of tea, and a great decoration piece for my study desk! A must-have for lovers of unique Kawaii items." —Gesca

    Get it from Amazon for $7.36.

    15. A clear bubble umbrella for all those fall thunderstorms.


    Promising review: "Love this umbrella. Had it for over a year. No damage. I guess it is annoying carrying around a full-sized umbrella. But it's stylish and protects from the rain very well. It does come out of the package with a kind of residue on the umbrella." —sarah jean

    Get it from Amazon for $14+ (available in two styles).

    16. A pack of beautifully patterned fishnets that are still conservative enough for a workplace but lively enough to give your look some personality.


    Promising review: "The fabric is really, really soft and goes back to the original shape even after wearing them for the whole day. The instructions included are pretty straight forward for washing and keeping them. I love their packaging, which is quiet classy. The pattern doesn't have big holes/netting hence it doesn't show much of your skin so I feel they are perfect for work and formal meetings. I love these tights!!" —Anshika Goel

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sets, and find a similar plus size version for $14.99+).

    17. A pocket-sized drawing journal filled with 642 prompts to help bring out your inner artist.


    Promising review: "Bought this for my very artistic 13-year-old daughter. She's forever asking, 'What should I draw?' I crossed my fingers when I ordered this, as we've tried many other books to inspire her that didn't. When I gave it to her, I was expecting a lukewarm response. However, as she thumbed through the book, she started giggling and smiling and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I even got a spontaneous hug. She ran to the door when her dad got home to show him the book. And I think that the 642 options may just keep her inspired for a few weeks! ;) Any book that can charm a 13-year-old girl is a keeper in my mind!" —Fascinated viewer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.42.

    18. A pair of ultra-plush and fluffy slippers to keep you looking glam and feeling cozy while you run around your house.,

    Promising review: "These are so darn cute. Everyone on my Insta loves them too! They do shed a bit but that's just until you break them in. They are a bit higher than your typical slipper. The criss-cross is not one solid piece, it's two pieces. I would go with your regular size for the room. I got the smaller one because of other reviews and wish I got the 7/8. But you can see in my photos that they are just fine and cute. Super soft and comfy!" —Dijana

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes 5-10 and in five colors).

    19. A collapsible silicone strainer perfect for those us who are short on space but big on pasta making (and draining).


    Promising review: "I love this item. It doesn't take up much space, it is sturdy, it goes right in the top rack of the dishwasher and just works! Does what it is supposed to do! Would buy it again!" —Amy M. Bryant

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    20. A super cozy fuzzy polo top you 100% need in your fall wardrobe! It's too cute and cuddly not to have.


    Check out the entire Negin Mirsalehi x Express collab.

    Get it from Express for $59.90 (available in sizes XXS-XL and in two colors).

    21. An effective shoe cleaning kit complete with a cleaner that works on any color and on almost every type of shoe out there to get rid of dirt and stains in every nook and cranny — it also comes with a super-effective brush to really get into those crevices.


    Promising review: "Quick and easy! A little elbow grease for the more stubborn stains, but this worked incredibly." —John C. Pemberton

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    22. An absolutely adorable silicone boba tea earbud case to help protect your tiny investment in the cutest possible way.


    Get it from Smoko for $15.

    23. A pair of comfy athletic ankle socks for when you take a run to the dark side.


    Promising review: "They are one-size-fits-all so if you have smaller feet (adult women's 5-7) they may be a little big. I am around a 6.5-7 and they fit okay but on the bigger size. I still think they are wonderful gifts for runners or athletes! They are also great quality for the price!" —brelli

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. A delicate sterling silver interlocking ring to give your fingers a little something extra., Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful ring! For all of the naysayers here. My ring came with a stamp. For all that said it was stainless steel because the finish wore off, it clearly states that it is plated with rhodium. It will wear off in three to six months with heavy wear. It is beautiful and for the price, you cannot beat it. I highly recommend it. The rings are solid and sturdy-feeling. I am very satisfied with my purchase." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 4-12).

    25. A super cozy oversized sweater that's just the piece you want on a chilly laid back day.

    Promising review: "Love this sweater sooo much! It’s so cozy and comfortable. You can dress it up or down and is very high quality for the price. I am 5’1", 130 pounds, and wearing a medium. Will definitely be purchasing in other colors!" —Emily Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    26. An inspirational hardcover book filled with the type of life advice you need when life pivots and you really need some guidance from your F*R*I*E*N*D*S!

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $15.95.

    27. An oversized thermal top for when those fall temps hit and you need the perfect shirt to wear.

    Promising review: "I love thermals for fall and this is perfect! Super comfy and a bit oversized to wear off the shoulder! Love!" —Life With Cam

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).

    28. A pack of DenTek slim brushes to get your lunch out of your teeth and make it okay to smile again.


    Promising review: "I’m going to start off by noting that I hate flossing and have probably flossed a handful of times in my life — probably after eating popcorn because I was more annoyed than conscientious. Also worth noting, at 32 years old I still have never had a cavity but I know I’m pushing it. So I got these because they were cheap, looked cute, and thought maybe they’d inspire me to initiate a dental routine. I like them! They get into the gap between my teeth closest to the gum unless you have a gapped tooth they don’t really pull all the way through like floss. The bristles are gentle and the wire is soft. The only negative is that I do feel a little guilty about all those disposable plastic handles. I did use one brush for all my teeth and will make the pack last a long time." —Greta M.

    Get a pack of 32 from Amazon for $3.85.

    29. A bottle of Not Your Mother's In A Heart Beat Blow Dry Accelerator designed to help you fight humidity, get rid of frizz, and cut your blow-dry time.


    Promising review: "My hair is somewhere between straight and wavy. But not enough of either to go natural. So I blow dry and flat iron my hair every day. It's long, past mid-back and, while it's fine, there is a lot of it. Typically it takes 35-45 minutes to get my hair dry. I came across this product by accident, so I decided to give it a try. My hair goes from dripping wet to bone dry in 10 minutes FLAT. This stuff is a lifesaver. I did not get compensated to say this. No free anything. I just want people who spend five or six hours a week under a blow dryer to know there's a better way!!" —CLL1979

    Get it from Amazon for $4.87.

    30. A bag of oral hygiene chews for your stinky breath pup — they're poultry flavored beef hides with enzymes that'll help break down plaque and tarter.


    Promising review: "This product has saved me a lot of money! First off, my dogs love them! It keeps them busy and they get really excited when I get the bag out. Before using these chews my vet was pushing for a dental cleaning for both my dogs (very expensive) because their plaque was so bad and their breath was absolutely horrendous. I even tried brushing their teeth. I gave them these chews a few times a week. Now their breath is much better and my vet even remarked on how the plaque appears to have chipped away and their gums look healthy. I will continue to give these to my dogs periodically to maintain healthy teeth. I recommend being present to supervise them in the event of choking. If you have a particularly slobbery dog keep them off of your furniture when they chew these because my Puggle (Thomas) made a big white filmy spot on my bed cover. Not the products' fault, Thomas is just gross. Lovable but gross. Oh! and he hides them a lot, I can't wait to find his stash. Penny devours them." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.83+ (available in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes).

    31. A gorgeous silky wrap skirt people will think you paid way, WAY more for.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this $5 skirt!!! It looks exactly like something you’d pay $49 for at H&M. Good quality, I paired it with a beautiful black tank and got soooo many compliments! Shipping took about two weeks, but totally worth it!" —Lexusvuitton

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

    32. A magnificent little massage reference guide that'll have you mastering the basics of back, hand, and body massage.


    Promising review: "I love that I can pick the different types of massage based off of what muscles I want to work on. My husband does physical labor for work and it’s nice for him to be able to tell me what hurts, and I just look up techniques that work on that specific area. The instructions are also easy to read and follow for someone inexperienced." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $13.46.

    33. An embroidered baseball cap so you can finally quench that thirst.

    ScreensNThread on Etsy

    Get it from ScreensNThread on Etsy for $15+ (available with customization options).

    34. A pack of adjustable strap stretchy undershirts so you always have a comfy, fresh layering piece available.


    Promising review: "I was skeptical about these camisoles. I wear camis under my shirts every day and usually go for the more spandex-style ones. I am so glad I gave these a try. They are completely different than camis I normally buy. They’re more cotton than spandex and don’t cling to your body the same way. However, I’ve found that I love this model. They’re so soft and comfortable. I have fibromyalgia and have problems with uncomfortable clothes so these ended up being amazing. They’re the right length to wear under shirts and they’re not too loose so they don’t get all bunched up. And having them be cotton-based, I actually find fewer problems with my shirts riding up over them. I highly recommend these. I hope to purchase more colors of these in the future." —Nicole D

    Get them in packs of two and four from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 14 set options).

    35. A silicone drain protector designed to work with both pop-up and regular drains, plus it helps catch every last hair that would normally clog up your shower.


    Promising review: "After tossing away quite a few cheapo drain protectors that became dingy over time no matter how I soaked and scrubbed them, I decided to splurge on this OXO silicone drain protector. I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, in my case, the silicone hasn't held onto mildew or mold — I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase for the few dollars more!" —Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.48.

    36. A radiance-boosting lychee Bliss Jelly Glow Ball made in a one-of-a-kind soft jelly texture and with a geranium scent that'll remove every last trace of dirt makeup during your cleansing routine.


    Promising review: "This is a delightful product! The jelly ball comes encased in a balloon and comes with a pick tool to pop the balloon while still in a plastic shell, however my pick just made a hole in the balloon and I had to cut it open a bit more with some scissors, but it was still really fun to open. It has a nice light smell and it lathers well, and I really enjoyed rubbing the weird, squishy texture all over my face. You can keep the jelly ball in the plastic case it comes in, but I have a cheap makeup brush cleaner that I put mine in and it looks like a rose quartz crystal ball. I just bought it for fun but it might become a regular part of my skincare routine!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.32.

    37. An adorable embroidered hoodie that's all ears and ready to cuddle you.


    Promising review: "The first time I ordered this I bought it much bigger, I was expecting Asian sizing. Well, it was way too big! When I asked about returning it for the correct size they were amazing about it and just sent me a new one straight away. It is extremely cute and I always get compliments on it. the sleeves are maybe an inch too short, but it is not really noticeable so I have no issue with that." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $11.15 (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    38. A pack of tiny little Uno cards you can play a tiny little game of Uno with when you have a tiny amount of time.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "It’s a teeny tiny pack of UNO cards! Each card is about half the size of your thumb. Why waste space with carrying regular UNO cards when you can carry these! Was totally worth it; can’t wait to play with friends." —JonnyD

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $6.

    39. An elevated (literally) padded headband that'll have you looking like royalty while you run around town.


    Promising review: "I have so many thoughts about this! This headband is so darling and is just what I’ve been looking for. I’ve been searching high and low for a trendy 'hatband' a la Duchess Kate and this was perfect. The quality is better than expected and such a great price point! Looking forward to styling it for an upcoming wedding. But mostly, I definitely recommend!" —Rachael Mutschler

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in 16 colors).

    40. A soft and slightly padded sleep mask so you can finally get a good night's sleep in that closet under the stairs you call a bedroom.

    Typo by Cotton On

    Get it from Typo by Cotton On for $5 (available in 17 designs).

    41. A pair of super opaque high-waisted leggings to replace your favorite pair that have a giant split in the crotch.


    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!" —nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three sizes and in 22 colors).
