    1. Grocery bag handles to make running errands suck just a little bit less.

    Promising review: "It usually takes me a dozen trips from my car to my house to get my groceries inside, and if I carry too many at one time, the handles cut off the circulation in my hands and arms. These special handles solved all my problems. Today, I only made three trips from the car to the house! When I had to put the bags down to open the door, these handles laid on top of the bags and I only had to grab them, instead of searching for all the plastic handles as they flopped around. Now there are no more bag marks on my wrist and my hands don't go numb! Who would have thought that something so simple could make my life so much better?" —Rosemary Smith Dattler

    Promising review: "I bought this after adopting my adorable and excitable 2-year-old Rottweiler, Titan. I was hoping to get some nice pictures to share with friends and this thing really works! At first, my fiancé mocked me for buying this, but now he's seen the great pictures and says the idea is genius. Titan loves tennis balls and the squeaky function really allows me to capture his attention. All pet owners need this!" —Maranda

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these glasses! I took them with me to my eye doctor and he compared them to some very expensive prescription frames, and these actually filtered light better than the pricey ones. I've been using these with my phone and computer screens for a couple of weeks and I notice significantly less eye strain. They come with a zippered, hard case and they feel super lightweight on my face. I highly recommend them!" —Kimber23

    Get them from Amazon for $9.50+ (available in 14 strengths and 37 colors).

    4. An automatic shutoff safety outlet, which will be the solution to your This Is Us–induced nightmares.

    Promising review: "I have a really bad habit of forgetting to unplug my hair straightener, but this little guy saves the day! I can now keep it plugged in and set this for one hour, which is plenty of time for the straightener to heat up and for me to straighten my hair. It's saved me a lot of stress." —Tori Martinez

    Get it from Amazon for $17.85.

    Promising review: "I peed everywhere. That bush? Yep. Peed on it! That tree? Uh huh. Peed on it. Those tiny woodland creatures? Screw you, b*tches! Peed on them. I peed in the sun. I peed in the rain. I peed just for fun. I peed down a drain. I peed in the light. I peed in the dark. I peed left and right. I peed in the park. You just hold it in place, pull your pants down enough for it to stick out, and pee. There's no taking your pants all the way off, no squatting, and no accidentally peeing down the side of your leg. When you're done you just shake it out, rinse it if you can, and stick it back into the container. Easy PEEsy. I can't wait until winter so I can try to write my name in the snow." —Dawn Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. A hair elastic–holding bracelet that makes keeping a hairband around your wrist way cuter and comfier.

    7. Bed bands, because is there anything more stress-inducing than sheets that are constantly falling off of your mattress while you're just trying to get some damn sleep??


    With over 4,600 five-star reviews, these things are legit.

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top and pillow-bottom queen-sized bed that is a little too small for king sheets, and with queen sheets I have battled to keep the sheets from popping off. I have tried everything! I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised on Facebook in one of those posts about the amazing products that people love. So I figured it was worth a try. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. I ordered this in February and it is May now — and they have not popped off once! They used to pop off EVERY....SINGLE... NIGHT. To say this is life-changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." —TinkerbellAPixie

    Get a pack of four bands from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three colors and two sizes).

    8. A 3-in-1 avocado tool, featuring a knife, a pitter, and a slicer, so you can not only talk the talk but guac the guac.

    Promising review: "I wish I'd found this sooner, it's the best invention! The plastic knife cuts right through avocado skin with ease, the pit corer grabs any size pit and takes it out perfectly, and the slicer goes all the way through and delivers nice looking slices every time." —Lynnedm

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. The Tubshroom drain protector, which will prevent all your nasty hair from clogging up your tub.

    TubShroom Hair Catcher / YouTube / Via

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four and we would frequently have to snake our shower drain. I won't be having that problem ever again. This even collects the hair when I give my dog baths, and it doesn't significantly slow the draining of the water. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" —Aaron Morlock

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

    10. A styling tool caddy perfect for storing or packing your hottest hair essentials.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these, one for my curling iron and one for my straightener. My husband was getting tired of having them on the counter and tripping over the cords. Now, I can put away my hair tools while they're still hot and not worry that they will burn something or someone. And the caddies hook to the front of my cabinet doors." —Shel Webster

    Get it from Amazon for $8.18+ (available in four colors).

    11. An adorable hoodie to take your bond with your furry friend to the next level.,

    Promising review: "My transformation into the local crazy cat lady is now complete. I’m shocked at the calming effect this sweatshirt has on all three of my cats. Mama Griz, who I thought would draw blood if I stuffed her in this pocket, nearly went to sleep! And Catmandu, my autistic kitty who’s overstimulated by everything, loved it. I could do a commercial for this thing! The fabric feels soft, and the fleecy lining in the pocket zips out for warmer days and washing." —Tammy Parker

    Get it from Amazon for $15.66 (available in sizes S–XXXL and in five colors).

    12. A microwaveable warmer capable of keeping bread and tortillas toasty for up to an hour. It's guaranteed to take the "burr" out of all your burritos.

    Promising review: "This thing is unbelievably great. We have a hard-case tortilla warmer, but this one beats it by a mile. The tortillas stay pliant, moist, and hot inside this tortilla 'blanket.' I pinned it to the side of our kitchen cabinet and it looks like a sunburst decoration hanging there. No need to put it in a drawer!" —Michael F. Harrington, Sr.

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in two colors and two diameters).

    13. A bracelet-fastening tool to serve as the third hand you always wish you had when trying to close a jewelry clasp.

    Just clip the clamp to the hook end of the bracelet to hold it in place. You can also use this game-changing little tool to help out with zipping dresses, fastening necklaces, and buttoning cuffs.

    Promising review: "I don't have anyone to help me put my bracelets on, and this thing is a life saver. I have multiple bracelets that I was not able to wear because I couldn't get them on myself, but with this tool it's a breeze." —lpclw

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $8.49 (available in white and pink).

    14. A waterproof notepad, so you never forget those genius ideas, hilarious tweets, and important to-dos that always seem to occur to you during your shower — or during a rainstorm.


    It comes with a cute pencil declaring, "No more ideas down the drain!" but it works with any regular graphite pencil.

    Promising review: "This is one of those things that I wanted even before it was invented. For some reason, when I'm in the shower I think of all sorts of important things, but I forget them as soon as I get out. I'm very happy with this pad. The suction cups hold it up for weeks, sometimes months. The paper is actually waterproof, yet the pencil writes on it just fine. If you're a forgetful idea person like me, buy this product. I've already purchased several and given them away as gifts, and everyone I've given them to seems equally excited by its existence in the world." —Theodore D Whitten

    Get it from Amazon for $8.91.

    15. A microwave s'mores maker, which'll let you enjoy the best part of camping (gooey marshmallow goodness) while sparing you the worst part (the outdoors).

    The device's cute little arms keep the 'shmallow from rolling off the cracker before it melts. You just pour some water into the gadget and the steam ensures that the marshmallow and chocolate melt at the same time for perfectly sweet results.

    Promising review: "We've made a bunch of s'mores with this already and they have turned out great. Without this, marshmallows start to expand in the microwave and fall off the graham cracker, but this little press is just enough to hold the whole thing together. We used to melt the chocolate on the graham cracker and then add the marshmallow, but this saves a step and is fun to use. It's easy to hand-wash, too." —Molly in VA

    Get it from Amazon for $11.45.

    16. An essential oil diffuser locket to help you chillax on the go.

    Just dab a couple drops of your favorite scent onto one of the included pads, load the locket, and diffuse all day!

    Promising review: "The pictures do not do this necklace justice! It's absolutely gorgeous in person! And so easy to use — just put a drop or two of essential oils on the small pad that comes with it and inhale aromatherapy wherever you go! More pads can be ordered and changed out. If you're feeling stressed, put some frankincense or lavender on the pad; if you're sad or depressed, try a couple of drops of bergamot. Have a headache? Inhale peppermint EO. This is such a beautiful, effective way to utilize the healing powers of essential oils." —mrs softee

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49+ (available in three colors). Get extra filler pads from Amazon for $6.28.

    17. A digital tape measure, because you're not the only one who struggles to read those things.

    It can display results in inches or centimeters and can save up to three measurements.

    Promising review: "My work requires very precise measurements. This gives me the ability to be more exact than with other tape measurers, and being able to get consistently accurate results is a tremendous help." —Mark S.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in red and blue).

    18. SkaterTrainers, a simple yet brilliant set of rubber guards to prevent the wheels on your board from rolling so you can practice your tricks in place. Totally rad, dude.

    Promising review: "My kid kept trying to get me to buy these and I consistently refused since I'm old school. I figured if a kid really wants to learn they should do it on the sidewalk skinned knees and all. Then I realized how expensive health care is and bought them. Now I realize these are genius. I was back to doing ollies in no time. Oh, and my kid starting to get the hang of it too! These are definitely a confidence booster for the kids, and sometimes that's all they need to get going!" —chubbybubba

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $19.99 (available in red and black).

    19. A handy little reminder that'll make sure your furry BFF doesn't get overfed despite trying to manipulate the entire family with sad puppy-dog eyes.

    Promising review: "This was bigger than what we expected, maybe five to six inches tall, but honestly it isn't a big deal — it has solved the problem! One person can leave the house and the next person that is home knows whether or not the pooch has been fed. The sliders don't move on their own. I've included a photo so you can compare. Maybe I will get some of that removable tape and stick it to the wall, but for now it lays on a little table where we keep her treats, her feeding bowls are below it, so it worked out. Wish I would have bought this years ago!" —Shop Munki

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    20. A mini-Sriracha bottle keyring, so you'll never be without the most important part of every meal.

    Note: Sriracha is not included. Set includes one 1 oz bottle and one 1.69 oz bottle.

    Promising review: "These are great. You never know when you're gonna need some Sriracha! The smaller one is perfect on a keychain and the larger one is good for people who have purses or somewhere to stash it. It's a great conversation starter, too." —Rick Swager

    Get a set of from Amazon for $14.23. If you need some Sriracha to fill them with, get two-pack of 9 oz bottles from Amazon for $7.80.

    21. A wearable, multipurpose device stand, because actually having to hold your phone is so 2018.

    It's also a great option for people with limited mobility.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cell holder! I am disabled and have to spend a lot of time in bed, and this has been a lifesaver for me! Lightweight and very flexible. I would highly recommend this cell holder." —Bonnie Brennan

    Get one that can fit a smartphone (compatible with most models) for $18.99 or one that can fit a smartphone or tablet for $23.99, both from Amazon.

    22. A too-sweet pair of touch lamps to share with your long-distance bestie. Whenever you touch your lamp, theirs will light up and let them know you're thinking about 'em.

    Uncommon Goods

    SO CUTE.

    Promising review: "Even though my friend and I can call or Skype each other at any time, there is something so magical about when my lamp activates. This is one of the best gifts I have given (and received) in years. It's so easy to set up, so beautiful to own, and so heartwarming to use." —gb4875

    Get them from UncommonGoods for $85 each.

    23. Drop Stop seat gap fillers, so the space between your car seats will no longer be a graveyard for loose change or French fries or — the horror — an abyss where your phone may be lost forever.

    Promising review: I purchased these for a new car and I've had them a couple months but this weekend they proved their value beyond a dropped french fry. My sweet 4 month-old puppy was sick and puked but not a single drop of liquid fell down between the seats! The material soaked up enough of the fluid to keep it from seeping into the threads of the seats or splashing around before I could pull off the highway. It was SOOO much easier to clean up than had I not had these guards." —Kathy Horner

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    24. A set of fashion magnets to hold your scarf or any other piece of your ~lewk~ in place without the sticky residue of double-sided tape.

    The Grommet

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $24.99 or a set of three from the Grommet for $20.

    25. A wearable nail polish holder for anyone who's ever struggled to give themselves an at-home mani.

    Promising review: "This is a super-cool product. It's always awkward when you have to keep grabbing the polish bottle off the table or try to balance it on your lap, and and it often causes spills. This little gadget is so perfect and holds the bottles with a secure grip." —Dawn C

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

    26. A programmable temperature control mug that'll remember how you like your coffee or tea better than your favorite barista does.

    It allows you to save multiple preset temperatures for different beverages and will keep your drink hot to the last drop.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this mug! It's perfect for when I'm at work and am hopping from meeting to meeting. When I get back to my desk and finally have time to drink on my coffee, it's still the perfect temperature. I also love that I get to customize the LED light on my cup — mine's pink 💕" —Reed Emerson

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in black and white).

    27. A tube of nifty Nerdwax, which'll stop your gorgeous glasses from constantly sliding down your nose.,

    Promising review: "As skeptical as I was...I was also desperate to try anything to keep my glasses from sliding. Nerdwax is pricey but it WORKS. I had to work on it to get it applied evenly, but once it’s applied it works very well. It even has a minty scent, which was wholly unexpected. It’s not strong enough to be offensive or distracting." —Valerie

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    28. A super-convenient magnetic wristband strong enough to hold up to one pound (!!!) of tools you want to have close at hand.

    Read our full review here.

    Promising review: "II bought this as a Christmas gift for my father. It was better than I expected. Sees to be made of a nice durable canvas material. It will adjust to any wrist size. And what impressed me the most was the strong magnets. I stuck a cheap pair of large scissors to it and the held, then a large serving spoon and even a moderately heavy chef's knife and it held with no problem. You can’t use the magnet to tote heavy items, of course, but more than strong enough to hold large screws or nails. I have no doubt he will find this useful." —Kelly Collins

    Get it from Amazon for $8.75+ (available in four colors).

    29. Musher's Secret, a godsend for your pup's cracked, dry paws that'll protect your pet from painful rock salt, snow and ice, and hot pavement.

    Read our full review of it here.

    Promising review: "I've been a professional dog groomer for 10 years, and I use this product all the time. Here's everything you need to know: I use Musher's Secret to protect paws both from the salt and cold in winter (snow and ice stick to their fur between paw pads and can cause frostbites; Musher's Secret helps prevent the ice and snow from sticking). It also helps protect paws from the hot pavements in the warmer seasons. This doesn't mean that you can let them walk on burning hot pavement if they have this on, it just helps to prevent the pads from drying out and becoming damaged and uncomfortable. You only need to use a tiny bit! It should never be gloopy on their paws! It's just like putting on lotion, the product starts soaking in almost immediately." —Max Siegel

    Get it from Amazon for $12.75+ (available in four sizes).

    30. Wine Wipes, because red wine is delightful but the purple-tinged evidence it leaves behind, not so much.

    Promising review: "As a dedicated wine drinker, these are the best invention EVER! They are small enough to fit nicely in your purse or cross-body and they are simple enough that a quick swipe removes all the red! I LOVE THESE!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a compact of 15 wipes from Amazon for $8.75.

    31. A fascinatingly flexible all-in-one sex toy that can serve as a rabbit vibrator, a cock ring, a double-ended vibe, or basically anything else your dirty little mind can dream up. You'll never get in a rut (or need to buy another sex toy) again.


    The Transformer can bend into any shape you want. It's also waterproof, has 10 vibration settings, and is rechargeable. Basically, it satisfies every need you could ever, er, come up with.

    Get it from Lelo for $129 (available in three colors).

    Me, after realizing all these products exist:
