    57 Products That Will Probably Make You Say "I Deserve This"

    If you aren't already drinking coffee with a lil' hanging cat spoon on the edge, let's fix that right meow.

    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 shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, so you can get all of the relaxing decadence of feeling like someone is massaging your head without physically going to a salon. Psst — a lot of reviewers mention this has also helped with psoriasis, dandruff, and scalp tenderness!

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    I recently started using one of these and WOWZA, it really helps you get extra mileage out of your shampoo. I have a whole lot of hair on my head so sometimes it's a struggle to feel like I've soaped up my whole scalp thorough, but this was a very effective way to spread out the suds and really get them to the roots. I was worried it might tangle in my hair, but it was totally fine on that front, too. I've noticed that my hair has been a little less greasy at the roots since I started using it a few weeks ago. And I'm echoing a ton of reviewers here when I say it just feels reeeeeally, really nice.

    Promising review: "I cannot explain how good this feels when you're using it! It relaxes you and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It actually goes down to the roots and makes sure that it gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt smoother than after I started using this product. I would definitely recommend this!" —Romie Patel

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in three colors).

    2. A popular streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask.,

    A heads up that this works *super* well for some reviewers, but not all — note that this is meant for non antireflective-coated lenses, and the instructions for use are very specific. To apply, spray a small amount on both sides of your lenses, and use your fingers to rub it across the whole area. Let it sit for a full minute, then wipe with a dry soft cloth. Once they're fully dry, you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "I have tried everything to keep my glasses from fogging with my mask and this product is by far the best. I'm sorry I waited so long to purchase it. I live in the Florida Keys and do a lot of diving and snorkeling and it works fabulous for my dive mask also. I would highly recommend Optix 55 fog gone. Great price, also I think this bottle will last a very long time." —Bebe

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55.

    3. A bottle of Dr Teal's soothing Epsom salt to help relieve aching muscles and give you something decadent to look forward to all day (aside from watching your frozen pizza go round in the microwave, that is).

    Promising review: "I needed something to help me relax that was not a nap and this did it for me! I used this in an evening bath. Not only did it help me relax, it also helped me fall asleep so good that night. I tend to stay awake in bed (usually on my phone) most nights, but after this bath I fell asleep right away. It didn't bubble a whole lot for me, but it smelled amazing and made my skin the softest it's been in a long time! It's a good sized bottle with a sufficient amount of baths per bottle. Overall, I loved it. I don't take baths too often, but this has inspired me to do this more! 10/10 would buy again." —Priscilla Perez

    Get it from Amazon for $4.87.

    4. A pair of wireless sleep headphones to play white noise or the music of your choice in a comfy headband, so your ears don't have to take the brunt of earplugs or regular headphones while you snooze.

    Promising review: "Absolute must-have Bluetooth wireless headphones. Perfect!! Paired with Bluetooth quick and easy. Battery charge seems to be very good, I've been wearing this all day into the evening and still at 100% charge. The range seems to be good, although I haven't been to far away from my phone, but very comfortable. I'm looking forward to sleeping with this on tonight listening to one of my Audible meditation books. Highly recommended." —ToesInTheSand

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    5. A lightweight, faux-leather tote so versatile, it'll last through every season. Plus, side pockets!! Finally a place to store all the emergency ketchup packets.


    Promising review: "I honestly was very scared to order such a plain purse. But let me tell you it may look thin and non-sturdy, but it has been the best every day purse. I literally shove everything in my purse, so much space and soo sturdy. Honestly who needs all these brand name purses when there are these affordable amazing purses that last and match everything. It has gone through trips, school, work etc. It honestly is the best purse I have ever had. I have an LV purse who I thought was going to replace this purse, and let me tell you I returned to this one for its accessibility. BEST PURSE HANDS DOWN FOR AN EVERYDAY PURSE!!! and you can dress it up to make it yours!" —Leslie A

    Get it from Amazon for $14.09 (available in 48 colors).

    6. A set of six satin scrunchies designed to hold back your hair without damaging, pinching, or snagging. Your regular hair bands are shaking.

    Promising review: "I’m never going back to regular ponytails again. These are absolutely perfect. I’m a dancer, and I need ponytails that 1. don’t rip out my African American hair and 2. actually hold my hair in place. These are so comfortable that I’ve fallen asleep with them in, but so secure that they didn’t move an inch throughout my entire dance practice. Absolutely iconic." —Taro

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $5.99.

    7. A fully customizable face mask — you can choose the size, the fastener type, and one of dozens of fabrics to get the *chef's kiss, but through a mask* perfect fit.

    A reviewer with long lashes holding up the mascara

    Promising review: "I don't write a ton of reviews, but after a week of use I had to come give some praise! This mascara is seriously fabulous. I have thin, sparse lashes, and I'd basically given up on my natural lashes looking flush, full, long and voluminous. I saw great reviews for this mascara and figured 'Eh, it's cheaper than what I use right now, why not give it a go?' Pure magic my friends. From the first swipe my lashes looked longer and more voluminous. I sent a picture to my friends, who I've often relayed my lash woes, and they were astonished! The first day I just did one coat. Today I did several, and my lashes could blow away they're so full and long. Love it! I didn't notice any smudging or flaking, but I'm going to try the waterproof one next for some variety (and for weddings, cannot keep my eyes dry at a wedding!)" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    10. 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.,

    I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it's LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don't live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

    Promising review: "This product was a real surprise for me, I was never able to keep my bubblies as fresh and bubbly after the first opening. Three days later, and my expensive BRUT tastes just as nice. Frankly, this is probably going to become my go-to gift from now on... pair a nice bottle to it and voila! Thumbs up!" —RonBY

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of the wine saver here!

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

    11. A reusable net grocery bag so chic that your produce might start to develop a *bit* of an ego about it.

    Promising review: "Love these bags, just so handy. They are strong and durable. I was able to carry all my groceries out of the farmer's market without having to use plastic bags. They are eco friendly which I love." —Parker

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

    12. A Baby Yoda dishwasher magnet so cute that washing the dishes will be your new favorite chore. This lil' bub is reversible, so you'll always know whether the dishes in the dishwasher are "clean" or "dirty" and avoid any dirty dish-related mishaps.


    Promising review: "Who doesn't love baby Yoda? I was tired of my husband saying he didn't know if they were clean or not and with us being Star Wars fans I had to go with this design — it's just adorable!" —Melsa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    13. A five-year One Line A Day journal perfect for anyone who keeps starting journals and then abandoning them — one line a day is *super* low commitment, so it'll likely stick (and imagine the satisfaction of looking back every year!).

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    The book comes with 365 pages, each of which has lines for five days, so they'll write on the same page each year when the date comes around again. It's a really cool way to reflect on their ~journey~ — kind of like those "this time last year!" things your phone or Facebook does, except they're the ones in control of what gets written and saved.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.81 for from Bookshop (to support local bookstores) for $15.59.

    14. A Tushy bidet attachment designed with ease in mind — installation is a cinch, and you'll get to live that fancy fresh "staying in a luxurious European hotel" feeling for a fraction of the effort these usually take.


    It's designed to install in less than nine minutes, and also doesn't require any electricity.

    Promising review: "I am loving my Tushy! It is powerful and so easy to install! Not gonna lie, I wish my sink was on the same wall so I could do the warm water option but it is super effective and definitely wakes you up! I believe this is the best way to keep things happily clean and, coupled with my Squatty Potty, I think 2019 is going to be the year of the happy BM!" —Natalie D.

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (originally $129; available in two styles).

    15. A "Good Vibes Only" candle you can order with a custom scent, so you can use it to ~manifest~ whatever it is you're hoping to achieve this year.

    Dorothy B & Co./Etsy

    Dorothy B & Co. is a New York-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2017 that specializes in hand-poured artisan soy wax candles.

    Get it from Dorothy B & Co. on Etsy for $25.

    16. Plus a rechargeable electric lighter that is wayyy more cost-effective than constantly replacing gas ones, and is long enough to light up even your most well-loved candles without worrying about the flame being able to reach the wicks.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (lol, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it.

    Promising review: "Wow. This thing is amazing. Small and so easy to use. My husband kept saying it won’t actually light anything and was blown away when it did. We lit candles and paper to use as tinder with absolutely no effort. No fuel needed. Just a quick recharging. And no waste in throwing away those huge and never easy to use butane sticks. Love love it. Easy buying process so I would recommend everyone buy one." —Diane Bold

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    17. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds, so you can rest easy with your nightly glass of Pinot knowing you've spared yourself the infamous Post-Wine Headache or allergic reactions.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    It's also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you're treating the whole bottle at once. Once it's in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

    Promising review: "For many years, I have been that friend that always says 'no thanks, I can't drink wine.' Even one small small glass would give me the worst migraine. So I gave up. Several weeks ago, I happened across an ad for Drop It and thought I might as well give it a shot. I took a big risk the day it arrived and had two huge glasses of red wine that I knew would give me a massive migraine the next day. It just so happened I had a midterm that next morning too — so the stakes were high. I woke up feeling fantastic. Since then I have repeated the experiment (to make sure it wasn't a fluke) and found that no matter how much wine I drink, as long as I use the drops, I don't have a migraine the next day. I'm so pleased to have found something that makes wine drinking possible and enjoyable again! I have nothing but great things to say about the product. It's easy to use and very discreet. I visited some friends last week and we spent a few hours at a wine bar. It was easy to add my drops. I took a small taste of the wine before adding the drops and found that it did not alter the taste at all. Thanks for a great product and a great buying experience. I will be back for more." —Mackenzie

    18. A temperature-regulating, oh-so-snuggly Muslin Comfort blanket designed to give you all the luxe feel of an oversized blanket without any of the inconvenient overheating.

    19. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker that doubles as a serving bowl, so you can have buttery sustenance as you fall into a Marvel movie marathon hole so deep it probably doesn't have a bottom.

    All you have to do is add generic kernels + whatever oils or butters you feel in your heart, and you'll be raring to go.

    Promising review: "This is a fast, effective and low-cost means to prepare popcorn. I got tired of paying a premium for microwave popcorn packets at the grocery. I didn’t want another appliance on my counter to air pop either. This was the perfect solution. I use inexpensive bulk popping corn, no oil or salt and I don’t have to worry about the metal in the microwave popcorn bags that gets extremely hot and scorches the upside down paper plate I have to put under the microwave bag each time. Plus, weren’t we told not to put anything metal in the microwave anyway? I pull the Salbree out, expand it and add 1/4 cup of popping corn kernels in the base to the full line. I put it in the microwave for 3+ minutes and listen for the kernels to stop popping. Using the cool handles I lift it out of the microwave, give it a minute to cool and add just enough butter to give it flavor. Then I eat right out of the same bowl I cooked in. When done I dump out the few kernels that didn’t pop. I wash it out with dish soap and hot water, let it dry and then put it away for next time. Economical, safe, less oil and salt and only one bowl to clean. No new appliance and no metal in the microwave. Pure genius. A great value." —RobG

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in 16 other colors).

    20. *Plus* a cult-favorite ~secret~ popcorn salt that anyone in the movie theater industry will tell you is a perfect dupe for that oh-so-savory buttery goodness you love to inhale before the previews begin. Not to be dramatic about popcorn on main, but this stuff is game-changing.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed,

    Our family recently unearthed this because beloved To All The Boys I've Loved Before author Jenny Han mentioned that it was her secret to delicious popcorn, and it may have just wrecked me for other at-home popcorn for the rest of my life. It genuinely tastes just as salty and buttery and savory as fresh movie theater popcorn. I inhaled it so fast that every single one of my organs lit up in mild alarm.

    Promising review: "I used to use Flavacol during my time working at an amusement park and popping popcorn for hungry guests, so I knew this was what the 'professionals' use. I am happy to report that using this does make your popcorn taste like it was just popped at a movie theater. I like to put a little bit of oil on my kernels, mix in some Flavacol, and then add it to the pot of oil on my stove top when it's hot enough (as opposed to sprinkling it on top of freshly popped corn, which I could see easily accidentally adding too much). It also means that I'm no longer loading up my popcorn with additional toppings like butter or plain salt. Yum!" —Kate R.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.35 (available in two other flavors).

    21. A thick clear lip gloss that glides on without getting so sticky that half your hair ends up in your mouth the second you get hit by a gust of wind, and will give your lips the perfect gleam of your Instagram dreams.

    The flavors include Mint, Rosehip, Mango, Coconut, and Argan oil.

    Promising review: "The cute little package that these glosses came in came pretty fast. The glosses themselves are moisturizing, come out easy, and VERY thick. If I ever run out (I feel like I won’t for years — a little of this goes a long way) I’d purchase this again." —nessie

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $4.10 (available in six flavor combos).

    22. A bottle of Orly's "Here Comes The Sun" nail polish so you can celebrate spring by gleaming just as delightfully bright as that big ole star in our sky ☀️.


    Plus, the color yellow can evoke happiness and optimism, which will set you up to tackle the next day with a pep in your step!

    Promising review: "Never ever imagined that I would love wearing yellow but this is a neutral yellow that just looks great with any color!! I’m so obsessed at the color combinations you can pair with this!" —Aliscott714

    Get it from Orly for $9.50.

    23. A bottle of one of Hot N Saucy's unique hot sauces so you can take your taste buds on a happy lil' rollercoaster, from Sweet Potato N Habenero on your eggs in the a.m. to Garlic N Peperoncini on your veggies in the p.m.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95 (clip the "20% off" coupon on the product page for this price).

    25. A set of adorable hanging cat spoons, because truly, is there a more purrrfect weekend breakfast companion than one that will stir your coffee and your heart?


    Promising review: "I loved these spoons so much that I ordered more for myself and my mother in-law. They attach to the side of your coffee mug easily, stay put, and don't even get in the way when you are drinking out of it." —Handy

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $5.99 (available in four colors).

    26. A dual hair dryer and brush to dry your hair as you style it and give your 'do an incredible amount of volume and shine, without the cost of a pricey blowout.,

    Unlike other hairdryers, this one can be held closer to the roots and scalp for a higher volume and lift, and helps you curl hair at the end while it dries. It comes with three heat settings and is designed to work on all hair textures — reviewers with 2A through 4C hair mentioned it working for them, and especially noted that it helps cut down on drying time!

    Promising review: "OK. I never write Amazon reviews which isn't cool since I rely on them so much ... but I just had to write one for this!!! So my BFF has been trying to talk me into this dryer for a while. I have REALLY thick, wavy, frizzy hair. I either get blowouts or spend about 20 minutes blow-drying my hair and THEN flat ironing it. So I finally caved and tried this dryer for the first time last week. I started out with pretty wet hair and product in it. About 90% of the way into the dry, I thought it was OK...but then everything came together. My hair was straight, smooth, and styled in about 10 min tops. I couldn't believe it. I immediately called my friend who told me to try it with my hair almost air dried. WHAT? So I did it the next time and again...WOW! This time I dried my hair in about three minutes...not as straight and smooth as the first time but pretty darn close. This dryer is a GAME-CHANGER. I can't believe the amount of money I'm going to save on blow outs!!! My BFF said it's also great for bedhead and quick touchups too. Can't wait. TRY won't be disappointed!!!" —Ann

    It even comes with a built-in Bluetooth music speaker so you can sync your favorite songs or audio with it, plus a remote with 10 color and dimming options so you can control it from wherever you are in the room.

    Promising review: "Bought this for a galactic-themed party recently, and I'm amazed by the quality! The LED lights are crisp and clear, and very colorful on empty canvases. This can also be used for kids' rooms, gaming rooms, or for a night under the 'stars' when it's rainy out. The instructions are clear on which buttons are which on the remote control, so you can change the colors of the simulated nebulas, set timers, etc. easily." —Shin-Chiao Fang

    28. A mini illuminated relaxation waterfall perfect for when you just need to stare at something relaxing for a bit to calm some of the "AGJAKLFGJAG" in your brain.,

    Promising review: "Awesome addition to my workspace environment. I've tried several fountains so far. This one is awesome, the pump is quiet, as is the water, it simply provides a really nice environmental impact on my workspace. I run it up to eight hours in a day, use distilled water only and clean it periodically, and it's running just like new after several weeks. Not all of the fountains that I've tried work quite so well, I'm impressed and happy with this purchase. Six-month update: If I could give this thing 6 stars, I would. It runs so quiet, and I nearly let it go dry last weekend *(three-day weekend and forgot to turn it off...) — once I filled it up again it was just as quiet as ever. I'm beyond impressed. Still cleaning it periodically and using only distilled water." —Rod

    Promising review: "What a great, convenient, healthy meal solution! I used the Cuban Black Beans in a breakfast bowl with scrambled eggs and they were an awesome addition. So easy to heat up in the microwave in their pouch and mix right in with the rest of my bowl. I’ll definitely order these again to help me save time on my meal prep. I can feel really good about this company’s social mission to help families in under-served communities eat well!" —Amy

    31. A jar of whipped shower icing so you can still feel decadent as heck even without a bathtub. Each of these comes with unique layers of soapy ~frosting~, with so many combinations it'll be easy to find one you know you'll love.


    Indulgence Spa is a Maryland-based, Black woman-owned Etsy shop established in 2015 that specializes in soaps, hair care, and body products.

    Psst — I recently started using this myself in the Three Wishes Tea flavor (a combo of tea leaves, peaches, rosebuds, and marigolds) and the smell alone is swoon-worthy, but I love love love how it feels in the shower. It has a satisfying creamy whipped texture, but suds up when you use it so you get that nice satisfying squeaky clean feeling, too. It's lasting a long time, too (which is great, but means I have to wait a little longer to try the other flavors 😂).

    Promising review: "Very delicious and very rich! I bought a set in the Black Opium fragrance, which smells just divine! I will definitely buy again." —invisible9

    Get it from Indulgence Spa on Etsy for $15 (available in over 50 scent combinations).

    32. A compact Bluetooth-enabled treadmill that's basically the closest thing you can have to a ~secret gym~ in your studio apartment. This compact lil' bb folds for easy, lightweight storage right under your bed. No muss, no fuss, just steps!

    Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed, Treadly

    Promising review: "The versatile treadmill is super lightweight and simple but it still keeps track of your speed, steps, time, and distance. The aluminum-reinforced hydraulic handrail allows you to start, stop, pause, and increase or decrease speed just like any other model. While the standard Treadly is controlled with a remote, the Treadly 2 works with an IOS app where you can set daily or monthly goals, join live groups, or compete against friends. I just got the Treadly 2 which has been massively helpful during quarantine. My mom was the only one home when it was delivered and despite being only 5' tall (she'll tell you she's 5'2"), she managed to get it into the house and up a full flight of stairs because she's just that stubborn. (She does now admit it's a two-person job, however.) Setup is a breeze as it's literally already put together — all you have to do it plug it in. The controls are easy to use and once you pair it with your smartphone, the app instantly recognizes whenever you turn the treadmill on. Beth (aka my mom) has an Apple watch so she used the activity tracker on there to see if the distance and calories matched up between Apple's tech and Treadly's tech and they did so she gives that a thumbs up. After walking on it for a few weeks (roughly an hour per night, four nights a week), her favorite things are: The switch functionality (great for interval training), how stable it feels both on carpet and laminate or hardwood (she tried both), and overall ease of use ("it feels like you're walking on an airport people mover!"). Her only advice for Treadly — if you're listening — is to add a cupholder accessory LOL." —Chelsea Stuart, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Treadly for $749+ (originally $849+; available in Basic and Plus models).

    33. A selfie ring light equipped with a tripod and cell phone holder to optimize your lighting sitch. Whether you're posting a cheeky selfie for the 'gram or stuck on Zoom for 800 years, this gadget's got your back (but, ya know, also your face).

    Promising review: "I do background work in film and television (I'm an extra and I drive cars on sets), and I have to submit a selfie to the casting company almost every day to make sure the casting director knows exactly what he or she will be getting. It can be a real pain some days due to lighting, getting a good angle (sometimes we have to hold a piece of paper with the date on it while taking the selfie--harder than it sounds), or just not feeling like taking a photo that day. With this set-up, I am able to just sit in the chair, click the remote (YASS! It comes with an awesome Bluetooth remote that lets you snap a photo with the click of a button!) and get half a dozen snaps in a few seconds. No struggle with the chicken-neck look that comes from holding the phone in an outstretched arm while also trying to hold a piece of paper with the date on it. Plus, the lighting is REALLY good. This product helped my selfies go from "meh" to "hey, that's a nice photo!" on the very first try. Easy to use — sets up in about five minutes. Once I got it set up, I just store it in the corner of a closet, and pull it out when needed. It is super light! Love it. If you want or need to take a good selfie or youtube video, this is the product you need! I love it! Recommending it to all my friends in the industry!" —Marti Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    34. A reviewer-beloved moisturizing morning face cream with SPF 10 perfect for anyone who wants a light, non-greasy addition to their morning routine to help wake up their face before those early morning dog walks.

    Black bottle of vital morning face cream

    Get it from Geologie for $35.

    35. A compact, lightweight Brevite camera bag with expertly engineered padding and pockets to accommodate your camera and all of its fragile accessories. Psst — unlike some of your tech, this bag also comes with a lifetime warranty., Brevite

    Promising review: "I've always wanted a photography bag to put all my gear that doesn't look like the regular bulky photography bag. This is it! The Runner is discreet, super light and I can fit my X-T3 camera with a lens on, two additional lens and my compact X100F. But the most important feature to me is the laptop sleeve where I can put my 16" Macbook Pro. Great quality bag with durable materials. Love it." —Lauriane M.

    Get it from Brevite for $129 (available in multiple colors).

    36. A Bluetooth shower speaker with a hook that attaches right to your curtains or a suction cup to stick it on your tiles, so you can wake yourself up to the majesty of Lizzo every morning the way nature surely intended.

    A round shower speaker attached to a shower curtain rod

    Promising review: "I bought this so I could listen to podcasts in the shower and in the bathroom from my phone, and I'm so glad I did. The Bluetooth is easy to connect the first time and every time I turn it on my phone will quickly and automatically connect. The sound quality is miles above that of my phone, mostly because it isn't echoing from on the counter. The sound buttons and volume up/down buttons are easy to use and I like that the speaker has both a suction cup and a clasp hanger so that it can be put practically anywhere. The battery also lasts forever, I've had to charge it only two or three times since I purchased it, and it gets 30 minutes of use easily every day." —Shawna Yanke

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98 (available in five colors; clip the "$4 off" coupon on the product page for this price).

    37. A sturdy, durable, and chic-as-heck all-weather lace-up boot made with water-resistant leather designed to withstand both the test of weather and time. Pfft, and the rain thought it could cramp your style.


    Promising review: "I have so much I love about these boots and the Nisolo brand. I love that these boots were made with sustainably sourced leather and wood. They took no time to break in. They fit perfect (I usually were a size 8 but I sized up 1/2 a size). They look great with a dress, jeans and even when I go on a hike. Very versatile. I live in them." —Renee K.

    Get it from Nisolo for $250 (available in women's sizes 5-11 and five colors).

    Promising review: "Bought this as a gift for my little brother's 13th birthday and he loved it! Considering he's a teen now and is very picky with presents, he said it was for sure one of his faves! LOL. The printing is very nice and not blurry at all, love the feel of the notebook as well. Very well-made! Buy it now!" —Melissa Elias

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    39. A set of magnetic bookmarks that will let you save your place while keeping your pages pristine, if you're in the Don't You Dare Dog Ear My Beloved Book camp. Plus, the array of colors mean you can match at least one of them to any given book's cover (extremely necessary to optimize the reading experience).

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $8.99.

    40. A cozy weighted blanket that might help you sleep better at night if you deal with anxiety, restless leg syndrome, or general insomnia. To really tailor the experience, it comes in a bunch of custom sizes, weights, and colors depending on your perfect fit and feel.

    Model snuggled in a white weighted blanket

    Promising review: "After reading other reviews on weighted blankets, I decided to go with Luna. (I have bought two now, one as a gift.) I love that the material is organic cotton, and the beads are not made of plastic. The material is cotton so it is light but strong. I have used this blanket for three or so months now. Having battled insomnia, restless legs, joint pain, and muscle pain, I had read that a weighted blanket could help. Honestly, I hardly have sleepless nights now. The blanket isn't too heavy but just heavy enough. Before I had this blanket there were many nights I was awake until 3 a.m. due to insomnia and pain. Now, usually within a half hour of winding down, I am asleep! It calms my restless legs , and really lessens muscle and joint pain! Blanket is sturdy, holding up well. Totally worth the money." —sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in seven sizes and various colors).

    41. A pour-over coffee maker that takes the complication out of making the perfect cup, and will make the whole process of brewing it feel a lot more hands-on and personal. (Also important: pour-overs make for top-notch Instagram boomies.)

    A transparent glass pour over coffee maker with cork accents

    Promising review: "In my effort to slow my life down, I am choosing to make coffee in smaller, more 'hand crafted' quantities. It's paying off for me in a better tasting cup of coffee ... and making me slow down and take more time with life. You can actually taste the difference in this coffee maker and pot at a time coffee. I am no longer making a pot, grabbing and gulping. I am now lingering in the making and drinking which adds to the enjoyment. Bought my daughter one too, so that she will start slowing down and smelling the coffee." —Deborah Daniel

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    42. A satin-lined Hairbrella that's got your back winter, spring, summer, and fall — it protects against rain, snow, humidity, and pretty much anything else mother nature can throw at you while perfectly preserving your hairdo., Amazon

    Hairbrella is a Black-owned small business established in 2016 that specializes in hats combining fashion and function to protect against all types of weather.

    Promising review: "Awesome hat, a must-have for hairdos. I get my hair done often and don’t want to destroy a great hairdo. I have been out in a rainstorm and taken it on the log ride into the splash down, hair stayed nice and dry. Love it so much I fold it up and keep it in my purse! It even has a ponytail pouch hidden in it." —applekoolaid

    *Another* promising review: "This hat arrived just in time for my trip to Niagara Falls. I have braids and this hat protected my hair completely. The visor provided excellent protection on The Maid Of The Mist as well as the walk behind the falls. This is a must have." —sandra l darrett

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in five colors and in two-packs).

    43. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, so you can add a pinch of sweet and a kick of spice to — well, just about anything. If you can dream it, you can Hot Honey it. (Pro-tip, though: drizzle it on grilled cheese.)

    A model drizzling hot honey over pizza

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. Makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." —Martha Ronemus

    Check out BuzzFeed's review of Mike's Hot Honey for more info!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    44. A cruelty-free, tea tree oil-based pore spot treatment to help cleanse and detox your pores, which in turn can help prevent the kind of acne that starts deep under the skin.

    A tube complexion solution

    Promising review: "I’m 36 and suffer from hormonal break outs, but I also try to be preventative. Since Covid, I’ve had to wear a mask for 8-10 hours a day. Needless to say, my acne flared up big time. I started using more natural products and when I was doing some research, Versed popped up. Originally I purchased this from my local Target, but they stopped carrying it. No exaggeration, the first time I used this, my skin felt better by morning. My skin was far less irritated and red. Of course it took some time to completely heal my breakouts, but the essential oils in this serum were incredibly soothing. I wear this serum every day under my moisturizer now, and at night before bed. It’s worked miracles in preventing extreme breakouts, especially the deep, cystic ones. I also had zero drying. This is the second time I’ve purchased this product and I’ll purchase another one once this runs out. It’s the best acne serum I’ve ever used, ever!" —Nikki Daly

    Get it from Versed for $15.51.

    45. A tin of cocktail sugar or salt for the rims of your at-home cocktails that come in so many inventive flavors you might just call the Food Network to get your own bartending show.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

    I recently started putting this on my end-of-the-week whiskey drink (quarantine has made me go full Mad Men, who knew!!) and it is SO darn satisfying. I tried the citrus petals version, and it's got a light lemon, faint floral, and vaguely minty taste with its sweetness that just makes the whole experience a delight and a half. The container it comes in is actually quite wide, so what we did was pour lemon juice on the top half to prep the rim, and a bit of sugar in the bottom half to coat it. In other news, I am officially too fancy to exist.

    Promising review: "Since COVID-19 I have become my own bartender. Taco Tuesdays and margaritas! The lime comes through so well with this salt. I use it for Bloody Marys as well. It is thick and chunky so its a learning curve to get the right amount of salt on. Don't press down too hard if you don't like a lot of salt. I do like extra salt but my husband said it was a little much for him, so I have mastered just a light salt for him." —cobrajet427

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in nine flavors).

    46. A bedside smartphone vase that can't make the sound of your morning alarm any less irritating, but sure can make it look pretty. Plus now you can be the literal embodiment of waking up ~fresh as a daisy~.

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $32 (available in two colors).

    47. A Function Of Beauty facial cleanser customized to your precise skin needs — you take a very short quiz and the site will personalize a cleanser based on your particular skin goals on the spot (and even put your name on the bottle 😍).

    48. A set of pop culture-themed pencils to rep for your favorite fandoms, whether they're based in books, TV shows, music, or movies. If you're obsessed with it, odds are there's a pencil version of it ✏️.

    Longhand Pencils

    Longhand Pencils is a woman-owned small business based in Texas that specializes in foil-stamped pencil sets, stationery, and accessories, as well as custom orders.

    I have seen FIRSTHAND how beautiful these pencils are (Longhand Pencils' Taylor Swift sets are to die for) and can attest to how beautiful they are in person (and how lovely a gift they are for pop culture enthusiasts in your life!). You can also work with them to create your own customized sets!

    Get them from Longhand Pencils: the Gilmore Girls set for $20 and the Legally Blonde set for $18.

    49. A bathtub caddy that will turn your boring bathroom into a veritable spa. Pinot? Poured. Candle? Lit. Netflix? Queued. Now all you have to do is calmly explain to your loved ones that you live in a tub now.

    Reviewer image of a bath caddy with wine, candle, and flowers on it

    Not only is it size-adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candle holder, and extra space for whatever else your cozy heart desires.

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in five colors).

    50. A minimalist geometric wine holder that you can either add to your bar cart's ~aesthetic~, or you can put anywhere in your space that could use a little understated flair.

    A geometric beehive shaped gold wine holder with room for seven bottles

    Promising review: "I bought this as a Christmas gift for my best friend and she loved it! I love the honeycomb shape and that it can hold a good amount of bottles. It’s a beautiful, Art Deco-esque piece that will suit any kitchen space or space to serve/show off your wine collection." —Arin

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    51. A sleek Aeroknit track top made with fabric designed to absorb water *and* wick sweat while you're on the move, so you won't do that thing where you run outdoors in the winter and then start sweating and then have your sweat get SUPER duper annoyingly cold.

    Model in a green high neck bomber jacket with black detailing on zippers and sleeves

    Get it from Adidas for $72 (originally $90; available in women's sizes XS-XL).

    52. A gorgeously designed Hatch Restore sound machine – it works overtime as a touch-controlled smart light, bedtime reading light, sunrise alarm clock, and even a wind down light that helps you get into a healthier sleep routine at night. Other bedside lamps could truly never.

    reviewer image of dome shaped amber light with digital clock on bottom  on a bedside table

    Hatch Restore lets you personalize a "bedtime routine" for each night to train your brain to recognize sleep cues and get a better night's rest. Options include changing the light settings to more amber tones to help produce melatonin for sleep, soothing noise options, and sleep meditations and sleep stories you can get in the Hatch app.

    Promising review: "This was the best thing I have ever found to help with my insomnia. I used to take hours to fall asleep and wake up multiple times a night. Now I rarely wake up in the night and fall asleep either during the guided meditation or just as the white noise begins. I love waking up gently and not to a blaring phone alarm, and I’ve been able to stop doomscrolling at night since I can keep my phone out of reach. Highly recommend!" —darcybear

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95.

    53. A pair of glowing light saber chopsticks that'll bring balance to the Force *and* to your sushi — whether you're repping the dark side or the light.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    As you can see from the above GIF, I bought these for myself, and I love them to pieces. TBH, I use them as decor every bit as much as I use them to eat. Sometimes I just keep them in my work area to light them up during the day to feel fancy. They toggle back and forth between a bunch of different colors, like red, blue, yellow, purple, and multicolor, so you can either make them match *or* have a red and blue one together and bring ~balance~ to the Force.

    Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention-getters. Way to go!" —T. Redwood

    Get two pairs from Amazon for $14.97.

    54. A set of adjustable desk shelves to organize your professional knickknacks and trick your coworkers on Zoom in thinking you have your life together.

    A set of small, light wood shelves of different sizes on a desk holding books, plants, a clock, and supplies

    Promising review: "Excellent product! I have been searching for an organizer to put on the top of my dresser, and I could never find anything unique, functional and not too big. I came across this organizer and took a chance since I wasn't seeing it in person. I am so glad I did! The product arrived overnight (instead of two days) and was super easy to put together... just follow the pictures exactly as shown. They even included a screwdriver, so you don't need anything extra to put it together. It is super cute, fun and fits perfectly. I definitely recommend." —lmeglin

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99 (also available in Black and Light Cream Purple).

    55. A structured planner that does way more than keep track of your daily life — it also keeps track of your larger goals and aspirations, and gives you ways to more meaningfully track them without putting too much pressure on yourself.


    It comes with 52 weeks and 59 pages for notes, and all the pages are undated, so you can kick it off any time you'd like.

    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).

    56. 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.

    A bristled round brush attached to a drill next to a before and after of a smogged up and clean shower door

    Promising review: "These brushes are freaking fantastic. I tried them on a portion of my shower and bathroom floor tiles and grout. I immediately had to do the rest because it made the cleaner sections look dirty. I also tried it on the side of my fridge that is next to my stove top. It did a pretty good job there as well at removing grease and stains. The only downside is that it made me enjoy cleaning!" —Eric T. Ma

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    57. A set of satin pillowcases – not only will it feel lovely on your skin, but it'll also create less friction for your hair, which may spare you those first ten minutes you spend every morning trying to find your face out from under the tangles.


    Promising review: "Couldn't afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors." —BinaryCode

    Get a set of two for $9.99 on Amazon (available in seven colors and three sizes).
