    1. A snout soother stick for your doggo's chapped nose. This vegan balm contains hempseed oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E that help heal crusty and dry spots. Rub onto their snout two to three times a day for some relief.

    2. A Goo Gone adhesive remover spray that'll help you quickly scrape off the stickers your small human placed all over the fridge and coffee table (sigh). Just spritz this formula on sticky messes and they'll be ~GONE~ in minutes without damaging surfaces.

    3. A shortcuts keyboard cover so handy for Adobe Photoshop projects. Instead of Googling for help, you can just look down at this "cheat sheet" with common keyboard shortcuts.

    4. A pack of AirPod putty cleaners to carefully remove all the gross gunk from your AirPods. Gently press a flexible square into one of your AirPod speakers, peel it off, and you'll be amazed to see all the earwax it picks up!

    5. A set of heel caps for your next fancy outdoor celebration, so you can avoid getting your stilettos stuck in muddy grass. Place one of these babies on each heel and you'll all set when it's time to take photos!

    6. Glossier's Boy Brow + Generation G Duo that'll come to the rescue if you need to do your makeup on the go. A brow pomade will instantly groom unruly eyebrows and a sheer matte lipstick will give your lips a just-blotted look. And both easily fit in a cosmetics bag!

    7. A leather cleaner for your car seats and couch that've been stained for eternity. Mix it with 32 ounces of water, apply with a cloth or spray bottle, wipe away grime, and let it dry. No scrubbing required!

    8. A set of shoulder-protecting pads that you can slip right onto bra straps to prevent chafing and digging. If your shoulder is always irritated after wearing a bra, these little tools will be a holy grail and crate a comfy barrier between bra straps and your skin.

    9. Toilet fizzy bombs because your toilet is quite stinky and you need to freshen it up. Toss one of these babies in the bowl and it'll leave behind a pleasant eucalyptus scent. They also contain baking soda that'll help eliminate stains and mask gross odors. 💩

    10. Peripera Ink Velvet Lip Tint for matte-rich lips that'll last for hours and not smudge. A pigment-rich formula and a smooth, velvet-like finish will give your lips a look that screams "I got my makeup professionally done."

    11. Light saber chopsticks so you can enjoy takeout ~in a galaxy far, far away~ (aka the kitchen). These babies glow and grip well on sushi and noodles, making your lunch break a fun and mess-free experience.

    12. A pore vacuum to remove nasty grease, impurities, and oil from stubborn acne spots and blackheads. This gadget extracts gunk with deep suction, as opposed to only treating the skin's surface. After you're done, you'll probably want to frame the results because they'll be that satisfying.

    13. A handheld garment steamer that'll get the wrinkles out of your clothes ASAP. Take off the top, pour a small amount of water inside, hang up your blouse or pants, and gently glide the steamer up and down to eliminate wrinkles.

    14. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream that'll hydrate the most sensitive skin with its gentle, fragrance-free formula. Reviewers love it too (it has 4,932 positive reviews and a 4.8-rating!), because it absorbs quickly and contains ceramides that help strengthen the skin barrier and diminish dry areas.

    Promising review: "I have had the worst dry skin of my life this year. Eczema on my arms, legs, stomach and hips. I got this lotion and with in two days there is an unbelievable difference in my skin and the ITCHING has stopped." —Amy Mitchell

    Get it from Amazon for $16.08.

    15. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey for your favorite dishes that need a flavor boost. Drizzle this sweet-and-spicy condiment onto tacos, grilled cheese, pizza, and more dishes to take 'em to the next level. 🌶️

    Promising review: "I was told about this product months ago and had it in my Amazon cart for a while before I finally purchased it. All I can say is WOW! I wish I had brought this little baby home sooner! It is amazing on pizza, but my family and I have had a great time finding other uses for this unbelievably versatile product. Move over Sriracha, Mike's Hot Honey is the new favorite in our home." —Pamela

    16. A Duvaid duvet cover changing accessory you'll love because swapping bedding will be a breeze. If you dread the process of placing a duvet inside a duvet cover, this handy tool will come to the rescue after you do laundry.

    17. A pack of plant food spikes because your green babies need the proper nutrients to thrive indoors and avoid wilting. This fertilizer can be used for all kinds of of plants like house crotons, ferns, and spider plants and takes the stress out of plant care.

    18. And disposable Houseplant Sticky Stakes for the annoying bugs taking over your precious plants. They're pesticide free and help attract and trap fruit flies, fungus gnats, thrips, and white flies indoors.

    19. A pair of mirrored glasses that'll make reading a book or watching TV in bed so seamless. Instead of propping your back on a pillow, you can comfortably lay down *and* do both activities at the same time.

    20. A pair of cleansing cuffs so you can get your face squeaky clean without water dripping all over your sleeves. Slip one on your wrist to avoid getting drenched during your skincare routine.

    21. An acupressure anti-nausea wristband for bouts of morning or motion sickness that inconveniently pop up. 😒 It exerts a little pressure on the P6 acupressure point, which is said to help alleviate nausea and vomiting.

    22. A carpet-cleaning solution you'll adore because it cleans *and* deodorizes carpets. If your pet had an accident or you tracked mud into the house, just use it with a carpet-cleaning machine and say buh-bye to nasty odors and stubborn stains.

    23. A color-depositing conditioner because you won't have to use DIY hair dye kits *or* spend lots of money on salon appointments to upkeep your 'do. It's semi-permanent and helps boost the vibrancy of color-treated strands every time you wash your hair.

    24. A Luminoodle LED lighting strip to ~magically~ elevate your TV-watching experience. It provides a backlight setup, so you can enjoy sharper images, better color contrast, and less eyestrain.

    25. A Wet & Forget shower cleaner that (gasp) you can literally spray and leave to clean for you. Instead of bending over a tub and scrubbing for eternity, all you have to do is apply to the grimy area, go do something more enjoyable, and rinse it away the next day.

    26. A Grip Clean soap to give your dirty hands a deep-clean *and* moisturize your skin. It contains coconut and lime oils that gently remove stubborn grease and oil and minimize dryness.

    27. A Shrek-inspired toothpaste cap that even Donkey would approve of, because your breath is stinky and you need to clean your teeth ASAP.  Attach it to a toothpaste tube, ~squirt~ toothpaste onto a toothbrush without making a mess, and *poof,* you can freshen up your mouth.

    31. A Scrub Daddy sponge because you'll ~smile~ when you don't have to use a lot of elbow grease to scrub grime off of dishes, glasses, and non-stick pans. It has a wide mouth that cleans both sides of your cookware, plates, and utensils.

    32. A cult-favorite vitamin C serum that's like a facial in a bottle. It'll help minimize hyperpigmentation, brighten dull areas, and soften skin. More than 48,000+ people on Amazon gave it a 5-star review for its jaw-dropping results.

    33. And a surface cover to make your boring countertops look *way better* than they did before. Everyone will be asking, "did you redo part of your kitchen?!" when IRL, you just stuck on this marble-print adhesive and didn't get expensive renovations.
