    41 Things That’ll Make You Say, “Why Don’t I Own That Already?”

    1. A ruched crew-neck T-shirt dress that'll look amazing dressed up with heels or down with your favorite sneakers.

    amazon.com, @ifthetopfits / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ok, EVERYONE NEEDS THIS DRESS. It’s so flattering, but more importantly SO comfortable. It reminds me of the Leith dress from Nordstrom but it's half the price and way better quality, in my opinion. I’m wearing a medium and I have a little room to move around so it’s not skin tight." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 16 colors).

    2. A revolutionary little crepe maker that works by dipping it into the batter — it's so hot that a thin layer of batter can stick instantly!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I found there is no real recovery time for the thermostat. Repeat five to six times or until you run out of batter. After about a minute or so of cooling, the crepes are stackable, meaning they should not stick together. Just be careful, crepes are delicate. A pan like this is good for an apartment or when you are faced with an electric stove. If you have a gas stove, go for the cast iron option. Why, because that's how God intended it to be. But in the face of adversity, the Lord gives you options, like this. Good price. Good buy." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (and don't forget the crepe mix).

    3. A very handy manual filled with all the symptoms, diseases, and ailments you already know you have — now you'll just have a name for them.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Wouldn't you know that the very first thing I read about, I actually have! Luckily, it's something that just *seems* as if it'll kill you, but won't actually do so. (I checked with the doctor a month before I bought this book.) I can't wait to find out what this tingling in my left arm and tightness in my jaw is!" —whitequeen

    Get it from Amazon for $18.06.

    4. An ingrown toenail treatment to help deal with the unsightliness and uncomfortableness caused by excessive nail curvature — it's actually a little brace that you apply across your nail, it acts as a spring and applies a gentle force to help straighten the nail and alleviate the pressure from the side of the toenail.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It is really amazing how quickly this worked for me. After having both my big toenails 100% removed as a kid due to ingrown nails, they never grew back the same again. One was ok, but the left to was so painful as it grew extremely curved and caused a lot of dead skin to grow under it. After reading about this product, I decided it would be worth the $50. After using this product for only two weeks, it is completely uncurved! It's insane! The most important thing about this product is ordering the CORRECT SIZE BAND/STRIP!!!! Another tip is to paint over the strip with clear nail polish, it helps it last longer." —Guerrero Clan

    Get a pack of 10 transparent braces from Amazon for $44.99.

    5. A discrete silicone anti-slip eyeglass retainer you simply attach to the arms of your glasses so that you can stop the struggle of them sliding down your nose.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Both my husband with metal frames and my mother with plastic frames love these! My husband had a spot on his glasses with some numbers engraved on it that irritated the top of his ear. We thought this product would solve that problem and it did along with the slipping down his nose. They were instantly comfortable to wear. I decided to try on my elderly mother's glasses for the slipping problem and she was thrilled too. Said for once her bifocals seem to be where they were supposed to be as her glasses are always slipping out of place. No problems with catching on hair for either. Does take a bit of work to slip them on but they stretched enough to manage it. A great idea that works!" —Nancy A.

    Get five pairs from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors).

    6. A container of Thayers medicated pads already drenched in their skin-relieving and pore-restricting witch hazel formula so your skincare routine can be that much easier.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are great. Really soothing and super convenient. A little pricey but they work and I don't have to mess around with finding a cotton ball and witch hazel, its easy to just throw in a bag and take to go. These don't sting either." —Drip it or drop it

    Get a container of 60 pads from Amazon for $7.99.

    7. A machine-washable seamless and wireless Hanes bra that has a very comfortable four-way stretch fabric, adjustable straps, and is totally tag-free.

    Amazon

    I have these bras (I'm normally a 38DD) and the large is amazing! I can't run a marathon in them, but they hold everything up and together comfortably. I even sleep in them only 'cause I forget I'm wearing it! The sizing chart only goes up to D but I've had success despite my bigger cup size — probably because I am on the smaller side of a DD.

    Promising review: "I love this bra! I am four months pregnant and have ever-changing swollen and tender breasts. This bra can be used for sleeping in or wearing around during the day. It provides medium support so can be worn for some light exercise and yoga. It is so soft and flexible it feels almost like I have nothing on but at the same time provides enough support to keep my swollen, painful boobies in line without squishing them. It is also stretchy enough to go up a cup size without changing bras. Order based on the rib cage size to get the perfect fit. The cups and shoulders are adjustable enough to accommodate several cup sizes and/or broad shoulders. It also has snaps in the straps that allow you to cross them in back for more support or different styled tops (and they are also the most understated snaps, right above the cup). Even though it is not technically a nursing bra, it would work well. Keep in mind that it has zero padding." —Andie and Brie

    Get it from Amazon for $10.68+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors).

    8. An adorable ruffled mini dress designed in a light material and with a sweetheart neckline making it perfect for summer.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This dress is soo cute and the material is great for how cheap it is! I was so impressed by the quality. I ordered a size bigger than normal and I probably could have gotten my normal size but I wanted to have it a little longer so I could wear it to work!" —Gracyn Herman

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 19 colors).

    9. An amazing all-purpose cleaner that's most effective at helping you clean those disgusting messes you've managed to get the inside of your car into.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I have kids (8 and 3 years old). They have destroyed my back seat. Spilled chocolate milk, vomit, melted chocolate, dropped fries, dropped ice cream, spilled Gatorade — you name it, it has been spilled in my back seat. I was to the point of accepting my backseat would forever be a disgusting wasteland. Then I stumbled upon this product and y'all...Y'ALL IT WORKS! I almost cried when I sprayed it on, ran a detail brush over it, wiped it away with the cloth, and the stains were GONE. No scrubbing for 30 minutes. No 'leave to set for 15 minutes'. No carpet cleaner required. Just spray, scrub, wipe, and it takes everything off. I am now cleaning EVERYTHING with this stuff. It is AMAZING! An absolute MUST for any parent. 100% will buy again." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    10. A nourishing and conditioning nail strengthening cream designed to help prevent splits, chips, peels, and cracks while helping them grow by using ingredients like calcium, vitamins, and hydrogenated jojoba oil.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is amazing!! As a lifelong nail biter, I decided on my birthday this year to finally kick the habit. I bought this, as well as two no-bite polishes (Mavala Stop and No-Bite Pro-Growth). I started using this cream every night on my nails. With some will power and some horrible tasting nail polish, this healed my destroyed, chewed, split nails and allowed them to finally grow. I have never been able to grow them without cracks and splits that kept them short and weak. I've tried other creams, polishes, acrylics, gels, meditation, the rubber band on the wrist, you name it. My nails are now strong and growing fast! This is my first real manicure on my natural nails! I now have a jar of this for home and one for work. I love it!!!" —HL1985

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.

    11. A very informative relationship guide so that the love between you and your house plants can flourish — literally.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ahhhh where do I start?! I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of this book and I can assure you that it does not disappoint! I just wish that this book was around when I first started my houseplant collection! This book is not only a gorgeous coffee table addition but an informative read as well. There’s everything from selecting, transporting, maintaining, troubleshooting, and caring for the houseplants you choose for your home. I really appreciate how they explain propagation and care techniques. I spent so much time researching propagation and didn’t find much so there was a ton of trial and error. This is packed with info and straight to the point. I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the houseplant life and it’s the perfect gift for the green enthusiast. Five stars all around, I’ll definitely be gifting this to all of my friends!" —Kelli Collins

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Dream Water is one of those natural products that actually works. I don't know why or how. If I try taking melatonin and/or 5HTP instead of Dream Water, it does not work as well. Now that they've made this powder, it's a no-brainer. Very affordable and it works exactly the same as the actual water version. I actually bought this at retail and will continue to do so because it works so well for me. No one bribed me to write any of this." —Parola138

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $6.99.

    13. An adjustable strap, open-back midi dress so pretty it's obviously a gift from the heavens — they even put a bow on it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love love love this dress. I want to wear it every day. It is so well made and a nice heavy cotton. The color does not fade or wrinkle easily at all. I did order it in two sizes but I only kept it in the smaller size. It was still long enough to be comfortable. One thing to remember is that the bow in the back is not a real bow so you can’t adjust it to be tighter. Like I said before, I love love love this dress. I got the XL and I am 5'10" and I wear a US 14." —Tori

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 12 colors).

    14. A stainless steel stirring spoon that'll puuurrfectly perch itself right on the side of your mug.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." —Brianna S

    Get it from Amazon for $1.47 (there's also a cute doggy set too).

    15. A delightful bilingual Lil' Libros picture game designed to be a kid-friendly version of Mexican Loteria and help your kiddo master a second language.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m a counselor for a school district and I bought this for my kids. I work with kids that know very little Spanish and work with others that just immigrated from Mexico and know very little English. The smiles and the confidence on each child when they get to read these cards out loud is magical. It is incredible what Lil Loteria is doing for these kids. This game is doing what I hoped it would do, build confidence for every child I encounter." —Diana Carolina

    Get it from Amazon for $16.06.

    16. A titanium 540 .25" microneedle derma roller designed to reduce the size of pores, fine lines, acne scars, and wrinkles — just gently roll it across the skin to help stimulate rejuvenation and exfoliate.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "My before and after photo is exactly 24 hours apart. I can’t believe the difference. I used a highly-rated, mostly organic Vitamin C serum after rolling, and then followed that with a good facial moisturizer. I’m shocked at the difference. The small bumps on my forehead nearly disappeared." —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    17. A very handy guide book to work out all of life's problems — all of them.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you need a good laugh or know someone who does — 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!!" —Marianne LaBatto

    Get it from Amazon for $10.94.

    18. A layered ruffle off-the-shoulder midi dress perfect for all those summer weddings, garden parties, events, whatever — I don't know your life.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ohhhh my goodness, I have been RAVING about this dress ever since I got it. It’s so comfy, flattering, and the top stays up so it never needs constant readjusting like other off-the-shoulder clothing. It looked great in photos! It closely matches the color in the pic. I also appreciated that I really didn’t need to steam it at all, which was surprising considering it came folded up tightly. Highly recommend for spring/summer weddings, vacation, etc.!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    19. A set of dishwasher-safe silicone straws for anyone who wants to get into the reusable straw movement but just loves chewing on them too much to use stainless-steel.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These straws are wide, so good for smoothies. The cleaning tool is very good, again, especially if you drink smoothies. I bought these straws because I want to stop using plastic disposable straws, AND the stainless steel ones I got are hard on my teeth. I use these straws with just open tumblers at home. I don't drink from straws in any of my portable vessels. My hubby, who is retired, washes the dishes that do not go in the dishwasher, and he thought these straws, and their cleaning tool, were amazing. If you want to save your teeth and the planet, I do recommend these straws." —Robin

    Get four straws and one squeegee from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two color sets).

    20. A straight-up magical oil stain remover capable of getting the toughest, baked-on grease stains out of your concrete floors and driveways.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Changed the oil on my girlfriend's car and some oil spilled on my NEW driveway...which I didn't notice 'til four days later. No good deed goes unpunished and I knew I was screwed. Read everything from using soap and water to small animal sacrifices to try to get out the oil — but they all ended saying the same thing, 'nothing really works.' Four spots all about the size of a dollar bill baking in the Arizona sun for four days. Found this searching on Amazon and I thought $8, whatever. That's one less vodka soda tonight for dinner. Put the stuff on (sits on the stain like pancake batter — don't be afraid to pour liberally) and let it sit from 6 p.m. 'til about 9 a.m. the next day. It dried and the instructions said to just sweep the stuff up (right, like I am not going to need a scraper and wire scrub pad for an hour. HA). Well it broke apart with the broom and the stains were gone, just swept up the powder pieces — took about a minute. I WAS SHOCKED! Something that actually works on oil and it's easy. Absolutely NO sign of anything that was there. My driveway is smooth concrete so I can't vouch for what would happen with a rougher surface but whoever makes this stuff is a genius. If they tried to take on World Peace, Earth would be a better place." —AmazonBob

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    21. A shatterproof silicone Beautyblender protective case that'll make traveling with your favorite makeup accessory that much easier — plus it's ventilating so your sponges can dry and it's big enough to hold up to two damp Beautyblenders.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was surprised to find that this blender case is silicone instead of plastic — but I actually prefer that now! It’s easy to use and clean. It fits two damp blenders inside — if they were completely dry I think you could squeeze three in there. Same price as what Sephora sells them for!" —Micah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.

    22. A charming 100% cotton dish towel you'll need now tonight, and you'll need it more than ever — if only you'd held that jar tight you'd be holding on forever.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I like this towel a lot. It absorbs nicely, the image doesn't scratch the dishes, and it makes me sing every time I use it." —Nerdy Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.40.

    23. A stretchy romper bodysuit that'll be a great layering piece for all your summer dresses, oversized sweatshirts, or skirts.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "'One size fits all' items NEVER fit me. However, this tiny catsuit fit my big body with ease. Haha! At first, when I opened the package I laughed and said this must be for a child but surprise, surprise, it fit. Slid into it like it was specifically designed for me. I am a size 14/16 with 40DDD breasts and it fit without pinching or squeezing any part of me. Great material, very light, and extremely opaque. I bought this to wear under a sheer shawl and I am very happy with this purchase." —Patrice Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in one size and in three colors).

    24. A gorgeous Blanca pin to gift to all seven of your lil' dwarves.

    25. An adorable elephant wallet for anyone who is always forgetting theirs at home.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this! It’s small but big at the same time. It’s perfect for putting your keys, lip balm, and credit cards inside. It's as big as my palm!" —Aliaksandr.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.15.

    26. A stainless-steel dumpling maker you could probably also use to make delicious mini empanadas.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect for making ravioli, I returned my big/fancy KitchenAid ravioli maker and bought this — all my frustrations went out the window. This is so much simpler and it works easily (with no waste). Good quality workmanship, it should last a long time. If not, the price is right to replace." —Jay Tee

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    27. A desktop Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy. Hi. I'm Elena, President and CEO of Elena's Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy Emporium and Warehouse. Thanks to a shipping error, I am now currently overstocked on Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guys and I'm passing the savings on to yoooou!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I opened the package and screamed for joy! As I placed the nine-volt battery my hands were trembling with what was going to happen next! As I turned on the wacky waving inflatable tube man I knew I had a friend for life. Someone you can really count on cheering you up when you are feeling down. He brought me such joy I started to cry with laughter and happiness." —Robert Wurstner

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. A sexy little polka-dot summer dress designed with a V-neck and a ruffled slit to help make your next date night hot, hot, hot whatever the temps.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this dress! It's so pretty and stretchy! The material is soft, reasonably cool, and the length is good. The fabric is a little silky and feels good on your skin, especially in the heat. The colors were nice and temperament. Very summery." —Alisa

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes M-XXL and in three colors).

    29. A concentrated foot cream capable of turning your cracked, dry heels into the softest skin you've ever known.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "My heels have been in awful shape for years and I felt like I had tried everything but low and behold O’Keeffe’s did the trick. I apply the cream two times a day: after I shower and before bed and it’s made such a difference. My feet still need a little work but I see a huge improvement in just the three weeks I’ve been using the cream. There is a week between each picture." —CV

    Get it from Amazon for $7.29.

    30. A pair of leopard print cotton socks for when you feel like taking a walk on the wild side but you don't want your toes to be cold.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $2.99 (available in five colors).

    31. An oversized cropped sweatshirt designed with a fun little drawstring at the waist so you can get the perfect fit.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Comfortable and soft — just as expected. Is very cute on." —Tabitha Ray

    Get it from Amazon for $5+ (available in sizes and colors).

    32. A copy of Dr. Seuss' greatest work What Pet Should I Get? — because it gives the right answers to what is really life's most important question.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love Dr. Seuss! I'm 84 years old and have always loved the stories of Dr. Seuss. So when by some miracle this book was discovered I just had to have it to read and add to my Dr. Seuss collection. I was not disappointed as What Pet Should I Get? just falls in line with his other most wonderful stories." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98.

    33. A water flosser you can attach to your shower head so you never have to leave a flooded mess all over your bathroom — now it can all be done in the shower!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a registered dental hygienist and I love this product. I recommend this to all of my patients and own two units personally.

    One of our units was purchased over five years ago and the second one is the new model. Any issues with the tips not staying on have been addressed. The new unit's tip stays on no matter what position I'm aiming it. The ease of use and fact that the water mess stays in the shower and NOT all over your counter and mirror make this a must-have. The therapeutic benefit of this product will more than pay for itself —10 times over. When you use this product as directed and daily, your filings and crowns will last longer due to cleaner borders, (margins), that will be less at risk of leaking due to plaque acid accumulation. Tissue healing will result in better-smelling breath which can only help your social life. I HIGHLY recommend this product." —dntlheeb

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in sizes and colors).

    34. A comfy printed T-shirt with your favorite proverb scrolled across the chest — you're just out here doing the Lord's work.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I like the quality. I ordered one for myself and one for my best friend. I like the quality and the writing doesn't seem like it's going to come off. It doesn't already have the tie on it — just a note. I normally wear a 2X and got a 4X and it's snug." —Harlowe Gonzalez

    Get it from Amazon for $6.19 (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in seven colors).

    35. A ruffled flowy smocked-bust midi dress to give your summer wardrobe a classic look in the most comfortable way.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So cute! I am usually a dress size 6/medium, but I definitely had to size down with this dress. A small was still a bit roomy but the stretchy material on top made it flattering! The dress is exactly as pictured. Love the color. I was worried about the quality because it was so inexpensive, but it’s actually really nice and not see-through at all! Such a perfect dress for vacation!" —JP0811

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes 4-10 and in three colors).

    36. An adjustable life vest for your precious furry baby shark.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased an XL and it fits perfectly for my 70 lbs. pit bull. It provides buoyancy to help her stay afloat. She wears it almost all day while swimming in our pool. She always wears it while out on our boat and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. I highly recommend you properly measure the chest of your dog in order to get the proper fit. The reviews I've read that comment on wrong sizing the reviewer only mentions the weight of their dog. The chart clearly mentions measuring the chest. For dogs with a broad chest, such as pit bulls, this is more important than their weight." —jeid

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in 12 colors).

    37. A retinol-infused night cream designed to gently reduce the appearance of wrinkles and even out skin texture and tone.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's just amazing what it does to your skin, my skin feels more moist, hydrated, and so soft. Sometimes I feel like I'm applying Elmer's Glue to my face, 'cause in the jar it has a sticky consistency but after you apply it to your face it becomes creamy." —Patty

    Get it from Amazon for $12.08.

    38. A set of perfectly coordinated coordinated books that'll help make your shelves look like they belong in the pages of an interior design magazine.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you've been looking for decorative books, then look no more — you've found your shop! Colors are true to photos and I love how they were real books! Not those hallow, fake ones you see. This made decorating very easy, fast shipping, and quality suburb. Will be ordering more from here in the future!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set from Covogoods on Amazon starting at $4 (packages start with just one book and go up to 25 books, they're also available in 15 colors including custom colors).

    39. A super cute Boho-inspired flare dress designed with a ruffled waist, hidden zipper, and double tie straps — just make sure to wear sunblock the day you frolick around town in this number.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love love love it! Totally worth the price. It has a zipper so it’s easier to get on. The straps are hard to tie in a cute bow by yourself, it’s definitely easier with someone’s help. But this dress is so cute, just buy it!" —Shelby Dixon

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in three colors).

    40. A set of stainless steel and glass soap dispensers to really class up the inside of your shower. And they're super easy to refill!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased these to use as shampoo, conditioner, and body wash dispensers. I wanted our shower to look like a spa! They are great quality and many people I know have copied our idea, so they are a hit! Very high quality, the plunger part is always the most important part. These are metal and not plastic, something which seems to be hard to find when looking for dispensers." —Rebecca Morea

    Get set of two from Amazon for $12.99.

    41. And a wall-mounted Dyson hairdryer holder, because if you're lucky enough to have the best blow dryer out there* you have to buy it a home too!

    amazon.com

    *We've tested them out and can confidently say the Dyson is totally the best.

    Promising review: "The biggest drawback of the Dyson hairdryer is the unyielding long, thick, stiff, and bulky power cable. With this rack organizer, I was able to keep the cable neatly out of the way of the arm during drying time. It also allows me to keep about half of the power cable resting on the rack which in turn does not bear weight on the dryer. Another word, this is a must-have accessory to your Dyson dryer." —Dan Hoang

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in two finishes).
