    1. A detangling brush reviewers with curly and thick hair say successfully brushes through knots *without* painful tearing or pulling. AKA you can finally kiss major shedding goodbye.

    2. An adorable sloth badge clip so you actually remember your ID every morning thanks to your new buddy. It turns out getting locked out never happens when you're living in the ~slow lane~.

    3. A set of leak-proof, silicone travel bottles, because these'll definitely come in ~handy~ if you want to bring hand sanitizer everywhere you go. Leave one in your purse, at your desk, at home, you get it.

    4. A headlight clear coat kit with light sanding discs, masking tape, and wax protectant for restoring yellowed headlights back to sparkling and clear. It's easy, fast, and most importantly, delivers r e s u l t s.

    5. A silicone drain cover reviewers say is easier to clean than alternative hair catchers (hello, conditioner buildup 🙃) *and* is a great solution if you don't have a garbage disposal. Why? How many times have you had to dig up soggy food? You have your answer.

    6. A set of button extenders to finally feel like you can BREATHE in those jeans that you love, but squeeze justttt a little too tightly. I can hear your sigh of relief from here.

    7. A flea comb that'll catch those pesky things even if your dog has long hair. It'll help you detect unwanted guests early, meaning you can use this right after a long hike in the woods.

    8. An extra-soft makeup brush for applying your makeup f-l-a-w-l-e-s-s-l-y. Its cushiony bristles has a slight point at the tip to contour *and* a flat side for allover application of powder or creams.

    9. A microfiber cloth specifically for phones so you can easily clean off smudges, oil, and fingerprints. Maybe it's about time we keep the thing that touches our face the most clean 🤔.

    10. A mash-and-serve kit with a handheld masher and bowl, because this'll let you prepare fresh baby food without the hassle of using a blender (or buying pricier pre-made meals at the store). It can even be used on-the-go so lunchtime doesn't have to wait.

    11. A coffee grounds scoop with flexible edges and an extra-long handle for easily reaching into deep containers (or blenders, food processors, whatever) without making a mess or getting your hands dirty. Mornings just became a little easier.

    12. An AquaLock box to keep your keys, wallet, or any other small personal items totally secure whenever you're biking or just want to live a life free from bags. I understand.

    13. A swivel grout and corner brush that you can attach to almost any broom handle to sufficiently scrub away tough dirt or grime from any angle without having to get down on all fours.

    14. A countertop tea organizer so you can keep your strong morning black tea separate from your chamomile — you can only risk so much before your first cup. Or! You can use this to organize your K-cups to avoid clutter.

    15. A dishwasher magnet, because this'll help you avoid a lot of conflict with a certain roommate who *claims* to "never know if the dishes are clean." Truly impish.

    16. An AirPods watch band holder for keeping your most expensive tech *on-hand* so you're less likely to lose 'em. Not to mention, you won't have to dig around the bottom of your bag every time you want to listen to music.

    17. Or! An AirPods magnetic neck strap to have your headphones right where you want them when you absolutely need them.

    18. A quirky drying rack that'll properly dry your glasses so you don't have to deal with streak marks. Consider this a small but easy way to grow into adulthood.

    19. A gel mani-remover kit so, when used with acetone polish remover, you can properly soak and remove even the toughest gel polish without going to the nail salon at all.

    20. A grooming brush, because this'll seriously help with your lovable, but constantly shedding, dog or cat. Your couches will thank you now that they're not covered in fur.

    21. The No-Spend Challenge Guide, a millennial-focused guide to personal finance, for making the most of our student loan–cursed reality and learning how to budget better, save money overtime, and pay off those flipping debts in an ideal amount of time. Maybe now we'll be able to buy a house one day...fingers crossed.

    22. A cellphone stand holder to keep your notifications in plain sight.

    23. An E.l.f. acne-fighting stick for hitting the ~mark~ every time when it comes to healing acne by using a powerful formula of salicylic acid, witch hazel, camphor, tea tree, green tea, and aloe. Not only does it nourish irritated skin, but dramatically reduces swelling and redness.

    24. A dotted bullet grid notebook that'll help you get better at taking notes or keeping a planner when you get creative with your handwriting and illustrations.

    25. A pair of Fiskars handheld scissors, because these'll cut through much more than just paper (including denim, silk, and multiple layers of fabric). *And* they feature a handle designed to ensure maximum comfort and control.

    26. An easy-to-use corkscrew for getting 👏 that 👏 wine 👏 open without any drama. Its design automatically finds the center of the cork as you spin it down, while its flat handle lets you twist comfortably, so you're pouring your first glass before you even have a chance to break the cork.

    27. A set of satin scrunchies to put an end to tearing your hair whenever you wear an updo — even if you have thick hair. And! You can wear them to sleep so you can stay cool without damaging your hair if you toss and turn.

    28. An air plant holder that'll keep your precious bb safe and give you even more reason to show it off at your desk. You're a plant parent, you can't help it.

    29. A cast-iron scrubber so dealing with cooked-on residue doesn't require seven days and nights of cleaning — or worse, accidentally ruining your seasoned cast-iron pan.

    30. A multi-tool keychain, because this good boy will come to the rescue in more ways than one. He's a bottle opener, mini wrench, flathead screwdriver, and cross screwdriver. He doesn't know "sit," but he's still a winner in my book.

    31. A jalapeño corer for preparing your favorite dishes without getting seeds all over your fingers (don't. touch. your. eyes.) *and* speeding up the process altogether.

    32. A pair of multi-use latches to protect your toilets from your dog whenever they'd like to take a drink. Reviewers also use these to keep their fridges safe from curious toddlers!
