    1. A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week without worrying about wasting the leftovers.

    2. A mug warmer to keep your coffee piping hot long after you brew it so you don't have to take the harrowing trip to the office microwave every time you forget to drink it.

    3. A gel polish light for drying your nails to utter salon perfection in the comfort of your own bed and cat-themed pajamas. This little gadget is deep enough to dry all five fingers in at once, and speedy enough to get the job done in 60 seconds, so you can be on your merry glam way.

    4. A rechargeable electric lighter that's wayyy more cost-effective than constantly replacing gas ones and is long enough to light up even your most well-loved Bath & Body Works candles without worrying about the flame being able to reach the wicks.

    5. A milk frother to make everything you drink taste like it was lovingly handcrafted by a barista instead of you blearily in the kitchen without pants. It's also teensy for storing and cleans with a quick stream of hot running water, so even the laziest among us can get 'gram-worthy drinks.

    6. A backseat hook perfect for purses and groceries so you don't have to worry about all your loose fruit and beloved bottles of two-buck Chuck rolling around in the backseat every time the car takes a sharp turn.

    7. A magnetic phone mount that suctions to the dashboard of your car, so you don't end up navigating in nightmare traffic when your phone suddenly slides under your seat and Siri's all, "Take a left at adfjgklajfgljagh."

    8. A power scrubber brush you can attach to a drill to take the effort out of cleaning and make a legit impact on all those surfaces you've been pretending not to notice the grime on for approximately too many weeks now. Just in time to boomie a confetti bath bomb from the tub.

    9. A hands-free grocery carrier that will make an entire massive grocery haul feel as manageable as a backpack, without requiring you to channel The Rock to get your LaCroix load in the door.

    10. A pair of hooks for your AirPods to stop them from slip n' sliding right out of your ears, then onto the sidewalk, then somehow rolling into traffic, then under the wheel of a Ford Explorer, and — well. If you have sweaty ears like mine, you get the gist.

    11. A sleek, compact reusable straw keychain, so you can help save the environment AND make it that much easier to find your darn keys when you're rooting around for them in the abyss of your purse at the end of the day.

    12. A rechargeable electric razor perfect for painlessly removing peach fuzz, nose hair, and other miscellaneous fine hair that you might not feel comfy charging in on with a full blown razor (I'm looking @ you, unibrow trying to thrive on my face).

    13. A set of magnetic pens you can pop right onto your refrigerator or your file cabinet, so the next time someone on the phone is all "You have a pen ready?" you don't have to scramble into the unknown of your junk drawer to find one.

    14. A wine caddy for your bath tub that will basically make you feel like you're living inside an episode of Scandal, sans all the messy political drama and the effort of having to choose impeccable outfits every day.

    15. A mini waffle maker that will let you eat your (figurative) heart out. If you're waffling on the waffles, you can also use it for hash browns, paninis, biscuits, and even (gasp) PIZZA. If you can dream it, you can mini waffle it.

    16. A pair of LED light gloves so you can see what you're doing in the dark, whether that's typing your conspiracy theories about The Bachelor at 2 a.m. when everyone else is asleep, or trying to figure out how the heck the circuit breaker works when the power goes out.

    17. A rapid egg cooker so you can cook a week's worth of breakfast eggs in a matter of minutes, whether you want a good old-fashioned hard boil or like 'em a little runnier.

    18. An adhesive charging cable that doubles as a phone grip you can stick right on the back of your phone, so you'll always have a backup charger wherever you go (as much as you enjoy being at the mercy of your coworkers when your phone starts to die).

    19. A beauty spatula to rescue that last lil' bit of foundation that no amount of wrestling with nozzles or the pull of gravity will free. It's been a lifetime of lost .05-ounce foundation scams, but now you can OUT-SCAM THE SCAM!!

    20. A three-way headphone splitter for those moments when it is absolutely crucial that you and your BFFs all simultaneously weep over the same viral video of a dog-and-baby friendship together, but don't want the sound of adorable laughter and woofing to blast in public.

    21. A six-outlet wall charger designed specifically for larger chargers that also comes equipped with two USB fast-charging ports *and* a nightlight, so you can get rid of that ugly power strip on the floor you keep tripping on by your bed in the middle of the night.

    22. A set of clip-on phone camera lenses to seeeeriously elevate your Instagram game, no matter what kind of smartphone you use. These will help you get top notch wide angle shots for your scenic pics, and capture the crispest details when you're shooting at closer-range.

    23. An adjustable smartphone mount for your neck, so you can watch episodes of The Office with your eyeballs without sacrificing the ability to cram sushi into your mouth with your hands.

    24. A battery-operated depiller you can use on your old sweaters, socks, and bedding to suck all the gunky fabric up so it's as smooth and new as the day you first got it. If clothes had a time machine, it would be this.

    25. A toilet night light so you can ~take care of business~ without waking up everyone else you live with — or worse, falling butt-first into the abyss next to the toilet when you aim your tushy a little too far from the bowl in the dark.

    26. A super bright cabinet light you can install either as an adhesive or magnet that will light up those darker storage areas in your space, whether it's a badly lit corner of your room or the inside of that one bottomless cabinet in your kitchen when you indiscriminately shoved all your pots and pans.

    27. An automatic Glade scent dispenser so your space will have a perpetual "I just CLEANED!!" smell without any of the actual "I just CLEANED!!" exhaustion.

    28. A pizza cutter that will get such clean cuts of your slices that you'll want to call Domino's to rub it in their face. This gizmo is also designed to be much safer than traditional pizza cutters, so it's looking out for your taste buds AND your fingers.
