    45 Things That Might Actually Help Reduce Stress In 2019

    Because 2018 has been A Year.

    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 diffuser with lavender essential oil that'll bring all the chill vibes, making your home feel like a spa.

    It's also great for prepping your mind and body for a trip to Sleepytown, USA — and we all know a good night's sleep is key to a better day!

    Promising review: "This is my first experience with a diffuser and essential oils. I was pretty overwhelmed trying to decide and compare devices (performance, ease of use, cost etc.). What really drew me in to this specific model was the high ratings and many reviews — over 20k! I love that it comes with a measuring cup, very helpful. I love the kaleidoscope color-changing mode. It's quite relaxing and mesmerizing to 'zone out' to. A few reasons/purposes for me were sinus issues and dry skin. I also wanted to feel rested, reduce stress, and try the non-pharmacological approach to health. My first oil diffusing was eucalyptus and lemongrass. I placed this in my living room (we have a very open layout to our upstairs) and believe it or not, the scent was reaching other rooms! This is powerful, small, and mighty! I'm very happy, can't wait to try more oils and experiment — great purchase! Now I want a few more for bedrooms!" —Amazon Customer

    2. A simple but effective to-do pad so you can track everything on your weekly list at a glance — rather than jotting stuff down on sticky notes scattered throughout the house.

    Promising review: "How did I make to-do lists without this pad? I love this to-do pad. It has everything organized so well and I always start out my day jotting down what I need to get done in each section. Not sure how I lived without it in the past! Will definitely order more for myself and as gifts for friends who need to organize a bit better. Brings me such satisfaction to know that I accomplished everything I needed to do. High quality and well-thought-out." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (also available in "All Out Of," "Self-Therapy," and other options).

    3. Wine, and lots of it — delivered to your very doorstep, in fact! (Translation: A Winc Wine Club subscription.)

    The Grommet

    Get it from Amazon or The Grommet for $7.95.

    5. Some comfy ear plugs so you can basically hit mute on any irritating noises or distractions that are crushin' your vibe.

    Promising review: "I purchased these ear plugs because I suffer from something called annoying neighbors syndrome. I'm not entirely certain of their activities, but I would liken the sounds coming from below and across from my apartment to that of an auto shop or a construction site, perhaps even an airplane hanger. It's particularly horrendous in the evening. Therefore, I have resulted to ear plugs to ensure I get a somewhat worthwhile night of sleep. The contour capabilities of these ear plugs make them incredibly comfortable to wear and the lime green color is particularly stylish, if looks are important while you sleep.... After inserting the ear plugs and allowing them to adjust, silence befell my bedroom. I was able to sleep free from the obnoxious noises that surround my apartment. My only complaint is perhaps these ear plugs work a little too well. I missed my alarm... by an hour and a half. For a full 90 minutes my phone alarm was ring-dingling away and the ear plugs blocked every bit of noise. After the initial panic of being late for work wore off, I was slightly amused that my neighbors had to listen to my alarm while I, for once, slept through their douchbaggery. These will be the only ear plugs I wear from now on. And I'm considering a louder alarm, so suggestions would be helpful." —Emily Buss

    Get them from Amazon for $2.98+ (available as a 10-pair or 50-pair pack).

    6. A sterling-silver axolotl necklace, because how can you possibly be stressed when you're looking at a smiley lil' axolotl?!?

    TrailAndTide / Etsy

    Get it from TrailAndTide on Etsy for $84+ (available in three finishes and with the option of 18 different stones).

    7. An essential oil stick to keep in your bag so you can combat a headache as soon as you feel one coming on.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "OMG, finally something that works! I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I've tried everything: over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, pain injections, going to the chiropractor, etc. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I've only had two or three headaches in that time and they were mild. I've already ordered more so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines — it's phenomenal." —Mary D.

    8. Lavender aromatherapy tablets to transform your everyday shower into a calming, spa-like experience.

    Promising review: "Someone gave me one of these tablets for Christmas and it was WONDERFUL. It emits aromatherapy lavender, and just puts a smile on your face. You walk out of your shower all smiles and calm. The tablet goes into the corner of the shower, where the water never hits it directly. It lasts over five showers. I SUPER highly recommend it. I wish I could just walk around the house with one around my neck!" —KP on Whidbey

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $8.71.

    9. And a spa bath pillow, so you can luxuriate after a long day in the (deservedly) most extra way possible.

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day...but I've recently had some health problems, which has caused me to lose a lot of weight, and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!) lol." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three designs).

    10. A Himalayan salt lamp, to provide your room with a soft, amber glow, for an ambience that'll have you feeling chill AF.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this lamp. So much so that I bought more!!! I like that the colors and shapes vary and that each one is unique. I received one that was a little more pink and the other was orange (which creates a really nice amber glow to the room). I think they are beautiful when lit and adds a relaxing feeling to the room. The dimmer works very well, I use one as nightlight without it being too bright. I have not seen any deterioration of the salt or moisture come from them but I do have something placed underneath to protect my furniture. These also do not get hot which I like. I want one for every room now!!" —J. Furb

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    11. A pack of sound-dampening door bumpers so you'll no longer be jolted awake by the sounds of your night-owl roommate or partner opening cabinets or doors.

    Promising review: "These work very well to dampen the sounds of my idiot roommates slamming cabinet doors at all hours of the day. Just make sure you're wiping down the part of the cabinet they'll stick to before applying them. The adhesive is good and should hold for a while." —LMA

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $4.45.

    12. A book full of tips and tricks for living your best life from author, illustrator, and comic book artist Yumi Sakugawa.

    St. Martin's Griffin

    Get it from Amazon for $11.09, Barnes & Noble for $17.99, a local bookseller through Indiebound, or find a copy at your local library.

    13. Golden Girls Mad Libs — because laughing is the archnemesis of stress, and who doesn't love this fierce quartet?

    Promising review: "Very funny stuff. My wife and I have already done a few pages and I can say that it is very true to the Golden Girls with its references and topics. It's not just Mad Libs with Golden Girls art slapped on the front." —Mr. G. E. Harbert

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    14. A this gorgeous 1,000-piece puzzle, so you can take some time to zone out and focus on the challenge of assembling it.

    Promising review: "It was a very fun puzzle. It had its easy parts and it had its very hard parts. A nice variety of challenges and rewards. The theme elicited many fun conversations with my wife, my co-puzzler, even to the extent of probably doing a mini-vacation this spring in a similar setting. The puzzle pieces were durable, only fit well when correct, with many "almost correct but not" pieces, and stayed together better than many other brands. I have since ordered another puzzle from the same manufacture." —Dave Freeman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49.

    15. A 100% cotton weighted blanket designed to increase relaxation and reduce stress.

    It's thought to also be helpful for those with anxiety, OCD, autism, and sensory processing disorder. For best results, choose the blanket that weighs about 10% of your body weight.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying two of these blankets! I haven’t slept through the night for almost 6 years, thanks to a difficult pregnancy and baby. It trained my body to only sleep a couple hours at a time. I tried everything, and am shocked that a weighted blanket worked so magically! From restless legs, insomnia, anxiety, it is an instant fix! I have it draped over me while I write this and it feels amazing!" —Jenny

    Get it from Amazon for $66.50+ (available in six sizes and six colors/patterns).

    16. A desk-organization set, because doesn't life seem so much more manageable when everything has its place in a cute and colorful caddy?

    Promising review: "Love the whole set!! it makes my office incredibly cute and fun in a dull work space." —Kimberlee

    Get it from Amazon for $18.97+ (available in pink, aqua, black, and white, and as a two, four-, five-, or six-piece set).

    17. A cover to seal the gap between your stove and countertop, so you can san stop stressin' about all those crumbs getting lost in the abyss.,

    Promising review: "I ordered these silicone gap covers to keep debris from falling in between our kitchen appliances and the counters. The thing that sold me was when I read a review on here that stated that they were able to use it for the gap between the stove and fridge. I have the same setup in my apartment. Countertop on one side of the stove and fridge on the other. The silicone sticks very well to the fridge, stove and counter. It doesn’t move around very easily, which is a good thing. Just make sure you place it with the wider side of the strip towards the counter as shown in the picture." —Kevin B.

    Get a two-pact from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in black and white).

    18. A Dohm sound machine, a best-selling "white noise" machine that mimics the soothing sound of rushing air, with two speeds and a customizable volume, to block out any noise that might be keeping you up at night — or annoying you during the day.

    Believe the hype: White-noise machines are wonderful for drowning out distracting noise and improving the quality of your sleep. I have two of these babies in my home and I can no longer go to sleep without turning one on!

    Promising review: "Literally life-changing. My apartment building has walls like paper and I heard every little noise my neighbors made. One particular unit is especially rambunctious, and I was getting about 5 hours of sleep a night for several months (my usual sleep cycle is about 8, 8.5 hours). It was taking a huge toll on my mental health and work performance; I was enormously stressed from lack of sleep and was near-tears several times a day. After doing some research I found this white noise machine and figured I had nothing to lose. It took a few days to get used to the sound, but it completely muffles the shouts, screams, and clangs that used to jolt me awake and keep me awake for hours at a time. I know it sounds cheesy, but I'm getting a full night's sleep again and it's thanks to this machine! Love that you have the ability to really 'personalize' what kind of white noise you want with all the different opening variations. Highly, highly recommend!" —Dana E Kapp

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95+ (available in four colors).

    19. A ClassPass subscription, so you can get those endorphins flowing and try out new fitness classes every single month — including cycling, strength-based classes, yoga, Pilates, boxing, and more!


    Basically it works using a credit-based system — so you choose the amount of credits you'd like to pay for each month, and then using those credits, you sign up for whatever classes you fancy via the ClassPass app.

    20. Bed bands that have over 4,600 five-star reviews — 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??

    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).

    21. Therabox, a thoughtfully curated self-care box designed to reduce stress and promote ~good vibes only~.


    Each box includes a "happiness activity" plus five to seven wellness products (e.g., aromatherapy, natural/organic bath, body and skin care products, and more) curated by therapists and designed to boost joy and relaxation.

    Promising review: "I love this box!!! It's so good for self-care. I started getting it a little after my son's 1st birthday and it has been wonderful way to help manage stress and help me stay positive. It's been good for me, my marriage, and my parenting." —Sabrina

    Get it from Cratejoy for $30.99+/month (use code CJFIRST10 at checkout for a special discount).

    22. Or a Coffee and a Classic subscription, because what's more chill than curling up with some classic lit and your favorite hot bev?

    Coffee and a Classic, Coffee & a Classic

    Each month you'll get one book (choose from classic literature, nonfiction, or children's books), something to sip on (choose from coffee, tea, or hot chocolate), and, depending on your subscription, one to two bookish items, something to snack on, a coffee mug, and a bookmark as well.

    Promising review: "I am trying four different bookish boxes and Coffee and a Classic outshines them all. It is perfectly curated to the book of the month. Best of all they allow you to change the book genre. I am signing up for a year's subscription. Highly recommended to everyone." —Campina

    Get it from Cratejoy for $25+/month.

    23. A "Drain Millepede" that'll finally unclog that sink or tub that's been making you want to tear our your hair (ironically, perhaps the same hair that's been taking up residence in your drains lately).

    Promising review: "For years I've been punching holes 'through' debris with my traditional wire snake but not cleaning debris. Thanks to this gadget, removing gunk and debris is no longer a problem. I admittedly was skeptical when reading about this tool on Amazon but I purchased one anyway. Now I'm a believer and have the photo to prove it. The tube of gunk I extracted with this little wonder was so big I called my wife in to show her what was lurking below the sink she uses. See photo (view this gross gunk at your own risk). A picture is worth a thousand words. Highly recommended!" —Coffee Roaster

    Get it from Amazon for $5.01.

    24. The cult-favorite Instant Pot, because the rumors are true: It truly does it all, and in record time, for stress-free cooking no matter what you're whipping up.


    If you haven't heard, this thing works as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, and warmer.

    Promising review: "Best kitchen gadget I've ever purchased! 10/10 would buy again. Makes cooking quick, painless, stress-free, and did i mention quick?! Worth every single penny I spent on it. I'm able to cook really healthy meals that are budget-friendly in little to no time. I highly recommend reading the little cookbook that comes with it. In the back are cooking times for commonly used foods, and it really takes the guesswork out of it. I've used it twice a day every day since I've purchased it. If you're on the fence, just purchase it. You won't regret it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in 3-quart or 8-quart); and get the 6-quart floral Pioneer Woman version from Walmart for $99 (available in two patterns).

    26. A karaoke mic so you can sing all the stress away from the comforts of your very own home.,

    Promising review: "If you’re wondering if this little thing is enough to host a karaoke party with adults in your own house, the answer is YES. It’s loud enough to fill a room and be super fun. I bought this for a family trip where we had ten adults and seven kids under 10. It was a blast. The microphone worked perfectly for adult fun after the kids were in bed and held up to the children abusing it the next day. We used this nonstop for hours and the battery didn’t die. Setup was so easy and it all functioned perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone for an at-home karaoke fun experience." —Claire

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in four colors).

    27. A chic-as-hell Away suitcase, because it's an Instagrammable sensation for a reason: You'll never have to worry about your phone dying during your travels again!

    Away, Arielle Calderon / BuzzFeed

    With a built-in battery ready to juice up your device, 360-degree rotating wheels, TSA=approved lock, a sleek AF design, and a lifetime warranty, this luggage is well worth its price tag, IMHO.

    Promising review: "We took our five daughters ages 9 to 16 to France this summer for two weeks, and each of us had our own color of Away luggage. Going through customs, traveling on trains, and getting in and out of hotels was a breeze! We loved every feature of the Away bags from the built-in charging stations, to the amazing amount that you can pack in one bag, to the adaptor kits included. Thank you for thinking of everything and helping to make our family trip so enjoyable!" —Kelly R.

    Get it from Away for $225+ (available in six sizes/styles and in 10 colors).

    28. A truly heavenly simple scalp massager that'll make you feel all sorts of warm and tingly feelings without resorting to committing a lewd act in public.

    Just thinking about one of these things gently caressing my scalp is making me feel less stressed.

    Promising review: "These things are better than chocolate and in a nose- to-nose running with sex. Oh my sweet god of scalp massagers. These things are amazing. You might look a little weird using them but after about 0.8 seconds you won't care. By that point your eyes will have rolled back into your head, you'll be drooling and (if you're me) one of your legs will be going like Thumper. I need to buy some more of these so I can have one at work, in the car, by my home computer, in the living room...anywhere I might be more than 5 feet from one." —Charles

    Get it from Amazon for $8.45 or a two-pack for $12.45.

    29. And how about a best-selling portable massager while you're at it?

    Because going to a professional massage therapist is wonderful, but not something most of us can afford to do every time we've got some aches and tension.

    Promising review: "Buy this! I got this as a gift from my amazing girlfriend who knows I complain about my neck all the time. We took a chance on this after I saw it and said I wanted it, after reading some other reviews I definitely agree that this is amazing. I was a little hesitant at first but once it arrived I wasn't disappointed at all. It does take some time getting use to as with anything, but it's very quick to learn your sweet spots and how to set it up in your car. It requires a connection to your 12v outlet to be powered but other than that it's good. It is extremely durable; I'm highly surprised at the build quality and the quality of the rollers, heating, and motors. I'd definitely recommend this if you have any neck pain or just want a relaxing message after work on the ride home." —Brendan S.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    30. A cascading wall organizer, because you've got papers and bills all over the damn, place and this, folks, is the solution you've been searching for.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to use as a part of our family's kitchen 'command center'; this is in a highly visible area of our house so I wanted something that was functional, low-profile, and not an eyesore. This organizer is PERFECT. There are enough pockets for each of our four family members, plus a few more that I've designated for bills and other correspondence. It helps keep the paper clutter off the counters and easily accessible for each of us. I love the clear front pocket where I keep my second-grader's 'specials' calendar so he can easily see whether he has PE, art, music or computer lab on any given school day. I like the bright colors; they help to liven up my kitchen but aren't at all tacky. Each folder is removable so the colors can go in any order you want." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $11.22+ (available in two colors).

    31. A set of spill-proof sippy cups that'll make kiddos and parents happy — so you're not spending every day cleaning up slippery messes on the floor.

    Promising review: "I've used these for the last year for my now 2-year-old daughter for milk and water and I love them. They're easy to wash (top rack of the dishwasher) and easy to use. I have two sets and I would buy again if I needed to. They've stood up to everyday use and a teething toddler. The only time I don't use these is if I'm heading out for the entire day. At that point I prefer to store her milk and water in thermos-type bottles to keep it cold and to make sure they don't leak in my bag. They can leak if it gets dropped, but the lids have always stayed on so I'm only cleaning up a few stray drops." —P. Wang

    Get four 10 oz cups from Amazon for $3.99.

    32. Some houseplants to turn your home into a super-chill, lush green oasis.

    Home Depot

    Get them from Home Depot: the palm (left) for $25.57 and the ZZ plant (right) for $17.37.

    33. A hypoallergenic silk eye mask filled with comforting lavender and flaxseed that'll have you feeling blissed out in no time.

    Promising review: "Love how adjustable this beautifully made eye mask is. One can add or remove the lavender to your preference. Also, the headband is adjustable without having the slider in a spot that would hurt when you sleep on it. All in all, this is a great gift or a nice present for yourself. I was told by my eye doctor that an eye mask would help with dry eyes. It might as well be a luxurious silk one!" —CB

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (available in black, purple, and red).

    34. A buddha board to help foster mindfulness and give you a healthy outlet to channel anxiety or stress.

    The board is made with a material that turns dark when you wet it, so you can draw on it with a wet paintbrush and the image will disappear as soon as the water evaporates. Includes a "canvas" (12" high x 9" wide x 1/4" thick), sturdy waterproof stand with a reservoir for water and separate grooves for holding both the board and brush, and a bamboo paintbrush with thick, ultra-soft bristles.

    Promising review: "I work at a college in an environment where I am stressed out a lot, but I also have a lot of stressed out college students in my office! The Buddha Board is incredibly soothing to 'paint' on (only requires water' and helps remind me that tough days will fade away just like my artwork does. Several of my coworkers have this in their office too. And, of course, it's great when you're not stressed out too- just fun to play with!" —Violet Kayjee

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    35. Or the Smack-a-Sack, which is exactly what you think it is, if your preferred method for releasing tension involves a bit more aggression.

    Promising review: "Got this as a gag gift for one of my lovely coworkers and he loves it. He keeps it in his drawer at work for when times get tough and he needs to relieve some stress!" —Brittany Richardson

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    36. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, the New York Times best-seller that aims to help you reprioritize what you actually need to care about and when it's totally okay to, well...not give a f^&*.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+, Barnes & Noble for $15.20, a local bookseller though Indiebound, or find a copy at your local library.

    37. A natural, alcohol-free stress-relief remedy made with floral extracts to soothe anxious pets who get freaked out by things like thunderstorms, fireworks, or vet visits. Less stress for your pet = less stress for you!,

    Suitable for dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, birds, and lizards.

    Promising review: "Mystro is a 15 lb, 9-year-old Maltese Schnauzer mix that is terrified of any loud noises, shouting matches, fireworks, thunder, and small children. He has a popular Storm Shirt that I use with these drops or without as indicated by the pictures. He likes to sleep. Do not be alarmed and think that these drops drug your little furry partner in crime, as they do not (I have more pictures of him sleeping, he just likes to sleep) — they produce a calm dog, without all of the storm anxiety. These drops are heaven as he does not tremble, pant or nervously follow me from room to room, trying to hide, it is as if there is no thunder, shouting, small children, etc., he is his normal laid-back self." — Petitesi020

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    38. Fresh-baked cookies! Because cookies make everyone happy. These ones from Daily Harvest are plant-based, gluten-free, and delivered ready to bake, so I don't want to hear any excuses about why you're not treating yourself to them this very second.

    Daily Harves

    Made with ingredients like reishi (thought to help with mood disorders and combatting stress), avocado, chia, chickpeas, and sunflower seed butter, these aren't your grandma's cookies (unless your grandma is a plant-based, gluten-free baker — hey, I don't know you) — but they're just as delicious, and packed with antioxidants and other health-boosting ingredients to boot.

    Promising review: "Chocolate chia: super dark and rich, excellent baked or raw. Coconut: tastes like a tropical macaroon, super moist and delicious. Chocolate chip: gooey and tasty." —Alia K

    Get 36 cookies from Daily Harvest for $48 (choose from chocolate chia, coconut lemon, cacao nib, or a variety pack with all three).

    39. Shittens, the gimmicky-sounding but actually practical mitten-shaped moist wipes designed to clean up poo in the most sanitary way possible — because there is nothing more stressful than actual shit on your hands.

    Promising review: "I’m kind of annoyed by how well these work for actual kid butt cleaning. At $20 a package I’m embarrassed to be purchasing a second package of these since the first was purchased as a joke to my husband. But here we are. Take my money." —Hannah Zumberge

    Get a 20-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    40. While we're on the topic: a mini bottle of Poo-Pourri to tote in your bag so you never have to worry about leaving a lingering odor behind in someone's bathroom.

    Promising review: "I have the standard size, a travel-size one, and an extra one to refill all my travel-size bottles. I keep one at home and one with me at all times. I was always too self-conscious about pooping in any public or private bathroom unless it was my own. I would hold it in no matter how long I'd have to wait. Eventually my body got so used to using the bathroom irregularly that I would sometimes go only twice a week. This bad habit put me in so much pain that it landed me in the hospital. When my friend heard about Poo-Pourri, he ordered it for me. It masks almost all of the scent. It has helped me regulate myself by allowing me to relax enough to go no matter where I am and who's around. Little by little I got comfortable enough to say, 'When you gotta go, you gotta go,' and put my health before worries about the stranger in the next stall." —AriQuinn

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in eight sizes and 21 scents).

    41. A pineapple corer, because name one fruit more stressful to cut and core than a freakin' pineapple. (I mean, worth it! But why go through all that when you can just pick up one of these handy lil' devices?)

    Promising review: "Literally took me less than a minute to completely core and cut my pineapple. It is well made and easy to use. If you don't want to spend the time coring and cutting a pineapple the old way I highly recommend this amazing tool. You will be buying more pineapples in the future if you buy this tool." —Jane Doe

    42. A super-handy mop and broom holder, so you don't have to be stressed out every time you open your closet and are attacked by your cleaning tools.

    It has 11 storage spots and six retractable hooks.

    Promising review: "This thing is AWESOME. I wanted one and put it on my wish list where it sat for... months? It just wasn't high on my priority list. Finally, after a few months of battling the brooms in my cupboard one day, I pulled up my wish list and there it was, waiting for me. Having had it installed for a few weeks now I can tell you — I should have bought it MONTHS AGO. I've been kicking myself for not getting it sooner. It takes about a minute to get used to because it takes a smidgen of force to get your brooms/mops/etc in and out of the individual grips but I acclimated to it quickly, I'm glad the grips are strong — it keeps everything exactly in place. Nothing falls or slips out. Rather than having brooms, mops, dusters falling at me every time I open my pantry, now they are neatly waiting for me when I need them, not when I don't. REALLY happy with this purchase. Saves space, reduces frustration, and was a great value." —Grandits Family

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    43. A CBD rub to help soothe everything from menstrual pain to muscle aches.

    CBD for Life

    Promising review: "You know how every time you leave your house you do that check to make sure you have your keys, wallet, cell phone? Things you wouldn't want to find yourself without? Well, my check now includes this truly game-changing potion that does wonders for helping soothe a lot of the chronic issues I deal with as a result of stress, menstrual cycles, and just plain life. Think: If Tiger Balm didn't smell awful and also had magic powers. The magic, in this case, is actually CBD, the non-psychotropic (and legal, for that matter!) part of the hemp plant that's having a serious moment in the world of health and beauty and with very good reason." —Claire

    Get it from Of A Kind for $25 (available in lemongrass and lavender).

    44. A set of interlocking bins so looking through your junk drawer won't be a panic-inducing experience from here on out.


    Each set comes with eight bins.

    Promising review: "Love it. What a difference it made to our junk drawer! Before things were so hard to find and falling behind the drawer, now the same amount of stuff is in there, but we can actually find what we need. Wish I did this earlier. Super configurable." —Alaina

    Get them from Amazon for $10.89.

    45. And a customer-favorite "massage" wand (😉) because we all know the real number-one way to reduce stress after a long day.

    Promising review: "All I can say is WOW. I love this thing! I have a lot of sex toys, including a Hitachi — which I used right after this to compare. This Shibari is easily my new favorite toy of all time. It's super powerful but not in the way that can hurt a bit like the Hitachi. Absolutely mind-blowing and got the job done within a minute, literally. I think I discovered a new kind of orgasm. Definitely would buy again." —Amazon Customer
