    33 Things That'll Help You Live Your Best Dang Life Every Day

    Because you deserve it, even on the days you feel like you don't.

    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. An AirPods holder you can slip onto any regular old wristband so you can keep those precious bbs right when you need them... aka when the perfectly nice but incredibly loud coworker is back from vacation.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this item with the expectation that I would not like it but I was pleasantly surprised. It slid easily on my Apple Watch strap and I never notice that it is there. I spend a lot of time typing every day and worried it would be distracting but I haven't once felt it. The AirPods fit very snugly inside the rubber and I have no fear that they will fall out since it takes a little effort to pull them out. I think it would look silly to constantly carry the AirPods this way, but I love having a place to put them rather than pulling out the case each time if I walk into a store or stop to have a conversation with someone." —JMK

    Get it from Amazon for $6.79+ (available in seven colors).

    2. A bidet attachment for your toilet that even YOU can install. Your family can cut down on your toilet-paper consumption, be a bit kinder on your plumbing, and come away from bathroom time feeling cleaner than ever.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The bidet has been around forever, and I'm kind of lazy and like the idea of having someone or something do the wiping for me. I own a fleet of cleaning robots after all, how is this different? Let me tell you, my backside is super clean. I use TP to dry, and it comes up clean every time. That is a lovely feeling. I give it a 10 out of 10 and need another for the other bathroom." —chaas

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

    3. A Home Chef subscription to keep your weeknight dinners exciting. After all, at this point you're seeing the pizza delivery person more than your best friend. Whip up the shrimp and grits, and invite over your BFF.

    @RealHomeChef / Via instagram.com

    Each week you can select the recipes you're interested in making with the option to customize (think swapping or doubling your protein), and you cook the pre-portioned ingredients according to the groceries. Here's to spending less time going grocery shopping.

    Explore menu items and pricing plans on Home Chef.

    4. A magnetic key rack you simply swap in for the screw on your light switch by the door. So where are your keys? Right where you left 'em — hanging from one of these tiny-but-powerful magnets! There, five minutes spared.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "How much simpler could it be?!? Take out the existing screws holding the switch plate, replace with the magnetic ones. Piece of cake! Love having my keys right by the back door without having to mount anything more on the wall." —AnewMom

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.99+ (also available in four- and six-packs).

    5. A two-minute morning gratitude journal that'll help even YOU carve out some time in the morn for thinking about your personal highlights and happy times. Journaling doesn't have to suck up huge chunks of time or take too much brain power.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a grad student in a very strenuous program and I like staying busy that way. But on breaks, when I have too much time, I sink into nothingness. I didn't expect this book to do much, especially since I thought 'mindfulness' was some BS. Even if it's the same prompts every day, it's what you make out of the book. I like mentally checking off the three small accomplishments I held myself accountable for in ink, somehow the book is better than my Post-it note to-do lists. And the main reason for the five stars, it helps with my depression." —KellBell

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    6. An e.l.f. lip exfoliator for keeping your smackers soft and flake-free, which will just feel nice OR really come in handy if you're like me and live in liquid lipstick.

    elf

    Promising review: "I was put off a little at first because it was smooth right out of the tube, but it took very little use to get to the gritty part. It smells great, has a light tint, great moisture, and the exfoliator is pretty legit. Especially for the money this is one of the best lip exfoliators I've used." —Pella18

    Get it from e.l.f. for $4 (available in five flavors).

    7. A foot massager to put your old dogs at ease, even if everything else is still stressing you out. I should know, I own this and LOVE it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this product! I bought it to keep under my desk at work to help relieve stress and keep up circulation throughout the day. The knobs on the rollers hit exactly the right pressure points and it feels wonderful!" —Melissa A. Syphurs

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95.

    8. Or a heated shiatsu-style foot-massager with rotating nodules that you can use to loosen up your tired muscles after a long day at work — or a long Saturday of doing nothing!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After reading several reviews, my husband bought this foot-massager for me. I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis and my foot and heel pain is sometimes unbearable. I've only had this for one day, but I've already used it three times. Each time I found complete relief! The instructions state to not use more than 20 minutes at a time, likely so it does not burn up the motor. There are two buttons- on/off and power button to switch between off/massage/heated massage. The heat feature is great and it really does heat up! For $50, you really can't go wrong!" —S T

    Get it from Amazon for $47.59.

    9. A deck of affirmation cards for the days when you could use a lil' pick-me-up without the cheese (OK, but actual cheese you could use).

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.05.

    10. Death Wish Coffee (yep, that's the name!) that'll make you scarily alert. Plus, the name alone will give you some major bragging rights.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OK folks, words of warning...if you have heart conditions, ration out your coffee. I'm serious; heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage, or single handedly raising the Titanic on your own; all in the first hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned!" —ITsTheXFactor

    Get it from Amazon for $19.96 (also available in whole beans, K-cups, and canned cold brew).

    11. Ghost hair oil that you won't have to be spooky to start bellowing about how great it works to tame frizz and flyaways. This is THE BEST hair oil if you have coarse, thick hair like me. Trust.

    @verbproducts / Via instagram.com

    I got turned onto this stuff after some colleagues put it in stories and after trying just about every hair oil out there, I can assure that this is the good stuff.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    12. A double extension cord because somehow the outlets are NEVER where they should be in a room.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "How often do you have to put in two extension cords going two directions, then have no free plug space as the 'mother site?' This is a genius device and excellent to reduce excess cords in my sunroom when I have holiday lights in the windows and still want to run plant lights on timers. Hope it will come in brown soon." —Kris G

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    13. And a 10-foot lightning phone cable because you deserve to live your life horizontal on your couch scrolling through your phone far, far away from the nearest outlet or extension cord.

    Amazon

    Can 10/10 vouch for doing this because I own this and yes do that.

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

    14. And a couch clip-on table for that side where there's zero space to squeeze in a side table for your beverages and the remote. Once I'm on the couch after work I'm not moving 'til I have to.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in two wood finishes).

    15. A reliable roomy tote in muted tones or a rainbow streak you can easily throw your laptop, lunch, water bottle, current read, and more into as you carry it back and forth.

    Madewell

    Get them from Madewell: The Zip-Top Medium Transport Tote for $178 (four colors) or The Transport Tote: Rainbow Stripe Edition for $178

    16. And a chic crossbody bag you could even double up on with your handy dandy tote. Or switch to for your post-work plans.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90 (also available in brown and black).

    17. Dip clips that'll fit onto your car air vent and make for easier nugz dipping on those days when you've just gotta eat a quick meal in your car bc, well, it's the easiest and quickest.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am guilty of eating nuggets in my car and the dipping sauce is often all over the place. Not anymore. This simple little cup keeps your sauce safe and keeps your car clean. Keep one in your car at all times." —Jessica Barrett

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99+ (also available in packs of four and six).

    18. Light-dimming stickers you can add over any lights that keep you up at night, here's looking at a restful night of sleep without feeling like your modem is glaring at you through your eyelids. You'll still be able to see the light when you're awake, it just won't be blindingly bright!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these to put on the LED on my external hard drive because it was very bright and it worked great. The whole thing was smaller than I thought but it's great to cover up some small LEDs if they really bother you." —F. M.

    Get a sheet of 100 from Amazon for $5.48.

    If you need to cover up bigger light sources, check out larger dimming sheets.

    19. An activity book for anxious folks that's filled with funny things to laugh over when you need a break or stuff to distract your mind when it's keeping you up at 3 a.m. Stop watching YouTube when you can't sleep (I myself need to stop this).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This book: fantastic. I've bought so many workbooks and coloring books that were supposed to ease, distract from, or somehow manage my PTSD anxiety with no result. I thought how different could this one be? But I liked the reviews, so I gave it a try. I laughed until tears were rolling down while reading this. I was gasping for air so hard I could barely read it to my husband who was cracking up from the book as well as just watching me laugh. It's great and at the same time, it's reassuring because pretty much everything I'm afraid of is mentioned, and even a few things I'm not (elbows; I had no idea that was an official phobia, but if I ever make it onto Jeopardy, well, now I know.)" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.46.

    20. Or if you're just into coloring, a coloring book with a cause that teaches kids (or whoever's using it!) about compassion for other people. *Plus* all the proceeds go to Families Belong Together.

    Families Belong Together

    FYI, the organization Families Belong Together works to "works to permanently end family separation and detention, seek accountability for the harm that’s been done, and immediately reunite all families who remain torn apart." TL;DR, an amazing cause!

    Get it from Families Belong Together for $24.95.

    21. A vegan brightening facial scrub made with sea kelp and French green clay to give you some oooh- and awww-worthy results. And it's less than my usual Taco Bell order! (Sometimes a v good day involves eating a few chalupas covered in fire sauce, k?)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOOOOOVE this scrub! I saw it in a BuzzFeed article about affordable facial products that really work, and had to buy! It’s eco-friendly, and gentle enough to use a couple times a week. My skin glows!!!" —MelbaToasty

    Get it from Amazon for $7.64.

    22. Buttery soft high-waisted leggings that are nice-looking enough to run to the grocery store in and comfy enough to wear all Sunday while you're in bed.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I own a Lularoe pair in black. These are thicker and just as soft. Comparable for sure..I can’t say if they will hold up better or worse but for the price, can’t be beat. I ordered two in black and love them. I have thrown them in the washer and dryer twice and they have held up well. Love wearing them around the house and to bed!" —H.Y.@

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 22 colors and regular and plus sizes).

    23. A password book you should fill out IN PENCIL because who can keep up with all those passwords you constantly have to change and apparently are not strong enough for the robots unless it has something like 29478495734592713 on the end. End the nonsense and spend a bit of time filling out this babe as a gift to future you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    24. A humidifier that may seriously help your stuffy nasal passages and dry winter skin woes. Buy one for your bedroom AT LEAST but you'll thank yourself for buying one for your living area too. Just think of that harsh indoor heat!

    Amazon

    Trust me, running one of these in your bedroom while you sleep will take your skin's moisture up a notch and may even help you sleep a little more soundly. They help me! This cool mist model has a 1.5-liter tank that can put moisture into the air for up to 16 hours of continuous operation. FYI, this size tank is good coverage for bedrooms, offices, and other medium-sized rooms.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    25. Water bottle-cleaning tablets to make sure your go-to container actually gets cleaned and LOOKS it. Tote around your fave brew in a now-squeaky-clean container!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wasn't sure if this was a gimmick or not. Turns out it works really well. I have four metal thermos-like containers that are used to keep tea warm every day. Over time, the tea stained the insides and was very difficult to remove. I added one of these tablets to the container, filled it with hot water, and let it sit for a few hours. When I came back to rinse it out, I was literally amazed at how clean it was. I think it looked cleaner than when they were new. I called my wife over to show her, and she was equally impressed. Awesome product!" —Robert A Moreno II

    Get 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    26. A gel-infused mattress topper that'll help keep hot sleepers cool as a cucumber without sacrificing the cushy embrace of memory foam.

    Amazon

    Made of a ventilated design infused with gel and comes with a 3-year warranty.

    Promising review: "So we've now had this for roughly a few months now and it's the best sleep I've gotten in a long time. I'm currently in my ninth month of pregnancy so finding a comfortable sleeping position without a pillow is nearly impossible, but I'm able to sleep a bit better with this on our bed. The only downside is it tears fairly easily, so if you have dogs like us (or even cats) I would be extra careful with having them on the bed due to nails. Highly recommend purchasing!" —Michaela

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99+ thicknesses 2- and 3-inch, and seven sizes).

    27. An undercover dog bed for your furry lil' angel who gets to do what you'd like to do, lounge around all day while someone else works for the chow. At least with this, you'll have a luxe-looking, machine-washable surface they won't get in trouble for drooling all over.

    Paw

    I've seen this beaut IRL and dogs seem to really adore them. Also my former dog roommate really loved a similar faux-fur blanket we had on the couch. As for that machine-washable part, the furry part zips off and you can wash it. AND the liner within is memory-foam and guaranteed not to flatten for 10 years.

    Get it from Paw.com for $199. And check out more of the luxe-looking home goods designed for your dog's lounging.

    28. A wind-resistant umbrella that won't end up in the graveyard of warped umbrellas that failed you during soggy gusts. And this design is so cheery! Cheery enough that you'll remember to take it with you so you can actually use it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this umbrella! I purchased one earlier for myself and loved it so much that I purchased three more, one for each of my daughters and one for my granddaughter! This is the greatest invention in years! It is wonderful to be able to get into the car and close your umbrella and then bring it inside without getting drenched! This is a great product that is sturdy and fashionable!" —Alicia Gillaspie

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in 44 styles).

    29. A memory foam cushion for transforming your lackluster office chair or worn car seat into a throne for your old bag of bones. Ya' gotta sit. Ya' might as well make it as comfy as possible.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spend most of my days sitting in front of my computer, and the chair I currently have feels really hard and hurts my butt a lot after sitting on it for a while.

    Pros:

    - Fits nicely on my office chair.

    - Feels amazing. Soft to the touch. Adjust to the shape of your butt for best experience.

    - Does not add much height to the chair, as it compresses when you sit on it

    Cons:

    - None

    Overall, I love this cushion. If you want some great support for your butt without having to spend too much money for a quality chair, definitely consider buying this cushion, as it will add support and comfort when you are sitting on them. Now I can sit for longer periods without feeling pain on my butt anymore (of course, I still recommend everyone to get off the chair to exercise or stretch once in a while)" —MVP

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    30. A waterproof Kindle to save you trips to the library with e-books sent directly to the device! Then you can practice some ~self-care~ by reading in the bath without putting yourself in a Final Destination sitch. Plus it'll lighten your daily load so you can finally get in more reading!

    Amazon

    So many people don't know you can have library books sent to your e-reader!!! (My mom even uses my NY library login in NC to read books on her Kindle.) Oh and this new version is lighter, thinner, and has 2x the storage of older Kindle models. You can also use it with Audible and Bluetooth headphones so you can listen to your story.

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in 8 or 32 GB).

    31. Satin pillow cases that I own and love! They'll become an essential for anyone who sleeps hot and/or wants to keep their hair and skin moisturized. Soooooo, everyone?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was originally looking for silk pillow cases, but decided to give these a try because they were a better price. I am not disappointed! I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair in the mornings and overall they are so smooth and comfortable to sleep on. I’ve washed them several times and haven’t seen a difference in the quality. I would buy again." —Kate

    Get two from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in three sizes and 21 colors).

    32. A pregnancy body pillow to have and to hold you, even if you're just pregnant with a food baby. It's *that* comfy.

    Amazon

    This is designed to replace the need for multiple pillows to support you. And the cover is machine-washable!

    Promising review: "I'm not pregnant but have lower-back issues that have led to sciatic and hip pain. This pillow gives me great support in laying right and not rolling into a position that causes me lower back pain upon awaking. It took me a while to get the right position to lay with it and even found two or three ways to lay with it. The first night I didn't sleep well with it because I was used to laying with all that extra, but the second night on was fine. The covers can be removed to be washed. I love it, it's helped me a lot." —Lisa Teaney

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in six patterns).

    33. An adorable pillow case to zhuzh up your couch because sometimes it's just nice to have something around that's super silly and will make you smile.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $3.98 (available in 10 patterns).
