    1. A travel pillow with an attached hood that will keep you cozy as you nap and serve as a "do not disturb" sign to your seat mate.

    The U-shaped pillow in grey, with a hood sewn to the inner rim of the U, and adjustable straps at the bottom to tighten the hood

    Promising review: "Amazing! Lightweight and comfortable. I fell sleep on the plane with the hoodie covering my eyes. It has a little strap with a button to keep it from falling." —Target reviewer

    Price: $17

    2. A stainless-steel trashcan with two separate compartments, so your recycling doesn't have to live in a weird wet bag under the sink anymore.

    The steel trashcan, with the foot pedal depressed and the top open, revealing two separate removable plastic liners

    Promising review: "I feel weird saying this but this trash can is beautiful! It is sleek and functional, and suits our family’s needs well! I’ve seen reviews on Amazon that stated that it was small but that isn’t our experience at all. We were surprised by how much each can held! If you are on the fence about ordering this item, I would encourage you to get it!" —CattMC

    Price: $149.99

    3. A roll of removable wallpaper in a navy-and-gold-splatter pattern, because renters should be able to have an accent wall, too.

    A wall covered in the wallpaper, which is navy blue with a gold splatter effect across it

    Promising review: "Really pretty paper that I used to cover two large, formerly white closet doors. My daughter loves it! Easy to apply and a relatively inexpensive way to refresh a room. I've used this same peel-and-stick paper with different designs in both of my bathrooms. No problem with moisture or peeling after five years!" —ValMac

    Price: $34

    4. An open, rotating pizza oven with separate heat controls for the top and bottom, for all you pizza control freaks who love to monitor the crispness of your crust (you know who you are).

    The pizza oven, which is comprised of a rotating disc that the pizza sits on, and a heating device anchored above and below it

    Promising review: "It gives complete control over how dark the bottom of the crust is and how bubbly the cheese and toppings are. Putting the pan on and taking it off is the most difficult part of this appliance. Once you get that down, it’s a breeze to operate. I highly recommend this small appliance for home use. It’s faster than using my larger ovens, and it tastes so much better than using the pizza setting on the oven." —Donna

    Price: $44.99

    5. A makeup bag that opens into a completely flat mat, so you don't have to dump your entire bag out every time you're just looking for your lip liner.


    Promising review: "This has been a lifesaver in so many ways. I can easily open and see all of my make-up in the mornings, and when I go to the gym, I just cinch, pull, and throw it in my gym bag. I also love it for travel...It keeps my make-up safe from germs on those hotel countertops. I have never had a make-up bag that was actually machine-washable. It washes so easily and comes out looking like brand-new. I used to dig and dump on a hand towel...those days are over." —Dee

    Price: $19.99 (available in four colors)

    6. A ceramic planter/ glasses holder, because when has multi-functional minimalism ever looked this cute?

    Price: $14.99

    Box containing the kit, including ukulele and instructional materials

    Promising review: "Highly recommend!! I started learning ukulele in quarantine, and it's been keeping me busy! Like all nylon instruments, it takes a couple days to learn to stay in tune. After that, you get hours of in-tune playing!" —Maddie

    Price: $39.99

    8. A travel-sized, solar-powered LED lamp that can provide light for up to 24 hours, so you'll never find yourself stuck in the dark.

The Luci light is solar powered, will charge during the day and be ready for the evening walk or inside, without a chance of fire danger. It’s completely safe with children and pets. I totally recommend a Luci light To all my camping friends." —3LM

    Price: $19.99

    11. An all-in-one breakfast sandwich maker that cooks your eggs, cheese, bacon, and bun at once, so you can skip the morning deli run and have more time for the things that matter (i.e. shower karaoke).


    Promising review: "This sandwich maker works perfectly! My wife and I love how crisply it toasts the English muffin while perfectly cooking the egg. There is basically no mess while using it, and the surfaces are easy to clean. When applying nonstick cooking spray, I used just a little bit on the cold device, and spread that little bit of spray around on the various surfaces before plugging in the sandwich maker. Once it has preheated, it makes a perfect breakfast sandwich in 4.5 minutes." —Tim K.

    Price: $24.99

    The light/ sound machine, which is cylindrical with a slightly wider bottom, side by side with a phone displaying the machine's app

    Promising review: "My whole family LOVES this sound machine. I love how customizable it is, and the variety of noises. I also love being able to control it with my phone. My mom loved it so much when I showed it to her that she wanted one for her birthday." —Aly Page

    Price: $59.99

    15. A storage tube that holds up to 12 rolls of wrapping paper, because just throwing them under your bed and hoping they'll be fine there until next year is not peak adulting.

    The sleep mask in grey with its matching carrying case

    Promising review: "I have slept so much better since I started sleeping with this mask (sleeping longer through the night!). I love the weight of it on my eyes — not heavy but it gives a secure feeling. It doesn't stay cool for long, but it helps relax you. This mask fits my head and face so well — it stays put throughout the night. I will be buying an extra one." —Shrewsbaby

    Price: $9

    18. A curved garlic press that crushes the entire garlic clove, without leaving that weird little stump like traditional presses do.


    Promising review: "This garlic press is sturdy and easily minces garlic for quick preparation. The pressed garlic comes out fairly easy; use a spoon to scoop it and get every bit of ingredient in your dish. If the garlic didn’t press through all the way, simply press and rock again — unlike traditional squeeze-handle garlic presses that leave a flattened piece of garlic with nubs that have to peeled from the press. This press rinses with ease and is dishwasher safe. Since it is stainless steel, it leaves no garlic smell and doesn’t feel like it could break easily, like the plastic-cased one. I’m very happy with this garlic press." —Kengle

    Price: $14.99

    19. A frozen drink maker for the frozen drink fanatic who is not going to let a little thing like "windchill" get between them and a margarita.

    20. A set of cabinet organizing mini-shelves, so you can end the clutter and actually find the turmeric (or extra toothpaste, or paint thinner) when you need it.

    The white plastic shelves, which are two rows, U-shaped, and elevated off the bottom of the cabinet by legs

    Promising review: "I am so very pleased with this product!! I was that person who basically had to empty out my spice shelf to get to the ones I needed. Although the cabinet I use is not very wide, my spices always seemed to migrate to the back. This set allows me to see all the containers and their labels, which eliminates a lot of frustration while cooking. Set-up was pretty simple, and the directions were fairly straightforward. Since vertical space was not an issue, I used the longer risers on both levels. I am very happy with the results." —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99

    21. A timer/whiteboard that lets you set four countdowns at once and mark down what each of them is for.

    Promising review: "This is my FAVORITE timer ever, and I've had LOTS of timers! I'm a busy mom with many distractions. I can write what the timer is for and set it. I use this for cooking, housework, homework, and whatever comes my way. My kids don't have to wonder what the timer is for. They know if it's for the casserole or it's time to put the clothes in the dryer. I like how I can get busy with my life and not have to worry 'What was that timer for?'" —Timer Collector

    Price: $9.89

    22. A motion-activated toilet bowl light, so you can keep the lights off during your late-night bathroom trips, but also avoid any, uh, aim issues.

    Price: $8.99

    23. A fruit infusion pitcher that will help you brew up a big batch of lemon, cucumber, or other infused water because let's be honest, that's the best part of going to a spa (the pan flute music is a close second!).

    The water pitcher, which has a central column running the length of the pitcher that holds fruit

    Promising review: "Love everything about this pitcher. Lime water is so refreshing. I find myself easily reaching my daily water consumption goals now. The construction is hard plastic, which makes it kid-proof outdoors near the pool. It is also an attractive design." —Vicki

    Price: $19.99

    24. A Blockbuster movie trivia-and-charades game for when you want to scratch all your nostalgia itches (yes, even your nostalgia for late fees).

    The Blockbuster game, which comes packaged in a case designed to look like a Blockbuster Video case, and which contains trivia/ charades cards and a timer for ganmeplay

    Promising review: "Got this game for Christmas and played it with all the in-laws. We had a BLAST! Movie buff or not, you can get really creative with your game play. We especially love the packaging! It's not only nostalgic, but it keeps everything VERY well organized. I hope they come out with expansions because if you play it often enough you might get through the cards several times." —mauchleygirl

    Price: $10.99

    26. A set of 12-inch, steel-and-fabric shelf dividers that can hook on to any shelf, so even if you don't have a lot of room, you can still feel organized.

    The candle in small black cylindrical jar, with the astrological sign and constellation written on the front in gold

    Promising review: "The smell of these candles is amazing, they have a nice long burn, and look great. The flame does go above the edge, though, so be careful where you place it. I love them so much I bought them for my friends!" —Target reviewer
