    1. Furniture socks that'll prevent scratches and scrapes, and keep your wooden floors glistening and looking marvelous.

    the brown furniture socks on wooden chairs and table

    Promising review: "These 'socks' are finally what I’ve been looking for to protect our hardwood floors. Our chairs have decorative legs with acorn-shaped feet, and these things stay on! We tried stick-on pads — that would fall off almost immediately, as well as cork bottom cups that always fell off. I think we tried five different kinds altogether, and nothing. Until this. I’m ordering more for the rest of the chairs." —Todd Oxenford

    2. A box of dye-, enzyme-, phosphate-, paraben-, and fragrance-free laundry detergent pods to make laundry day a breeze, and keep irritants out of your clothes, blankets, and towels.

    Promising review: "I use nothing else. I can now wash my clothes without several rinses required. No scents, no irritating additives. My skin thanks you!" —Debra B.

    Get a box of 64 pods from Dropps for $24 (or for $18 with a subscription!).

    3. A cascading wall organizer so all your files and important papers stay nice and neat in one place, plus they'll easily pack up if you ever need to take them on the go!


    Promising review: "This is the most amazing invention ever. My husband and I got into a habit of piling up all our random papers in the kitchen on top of the microwave, and I was just SICK of it! Could never find anything and things would go missing. Once I set this up, it was a game changer. My kitchen mess is no longer! And I have not lost another field trip form and have a place for all those floating art projects, receipts, and pay stubs." —Kirsten

    4. A TubShroom you'll use to prevent hair from clogging up your drain so you never have to stand in your own dirt water while showering again.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this little rubber strainer, but I needed something to save my drains from the piles of hair that fall out of my head. This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Clean up is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had." —Lawyer For Justice

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors). Also, check out the SinkShroom and the ShowerShroom.

    5. A eucalyptus-based weighted blanket that'll help you sleep better and look gorgeous on your couch or living room. This plant-based knit is designed to keep you cool, and the added weight will help soothe your nightly woes away.

    Promising review: "I am beyond happy with my purchase and get the best night's sleep. Best blanket I've ever owned. It has brought me great comfort during this stressful time." —Brittany B.

    Get it from Bearaby for $269+ (available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds and eight colors).

    6. An overflow drain cover to ensure your baths are always filled with as much water and bubbles as you can handle!

    Promising review: "Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know... THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths, enjoy more relaxing warm coziness... all because of this little bit of silicone!" —anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in four colors).

    7. A foot hammock you'll use in your WFH room to kick your feet up throughout the workday.

    It can be fastened on pretty much any kind of desk.

    Promising review: "I am a gamer so I needed a good footstool that doesn't dig into my legs and feet. Works perfectly." —Brandi Wooldridge

    Get it from Amazon for $21.78.

    8. An Always Pan that's so multi-functional it'll replace eight pieces of cookware — use it to fry, steam, strain, stir, sauté, and make sauces in.

    Our Place

    Promising review: "We’ve had this pan for about a month now, and literally it’s the only kitchen utensil we use — from eggs to pasta sauce and everything in between, it seriously does it all! It’s the non-stick to end all non-sticks and could not be easier to clean! I’ve been describing it to friends as the away suitcase version of a pan — they basically took all the things that people complain about with pans away and created the perfect pan. It comes with a wooden spoon that attaches to the handle of the pan so you don’t need to dirty your stove with a dirty spoon, it has a spout on the side so you can easily pour from it, and it comes in adorable colors so I actually keep it sitting out on the stove all the time because it’s fun to look at. I chose the steam color but am also obsessed with the spice color. When I bought it they had a promo code to also get free plates or bowls when you ordered a pan, and so I also got the set of the stackable bowls, which are also so cute and the perfect size for any of your bowl-related needs!" —Maycie Timpone

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in seven colors).

    9. A pack of elastic fasteners for anyone who always needs help making sure the sheets stay where they are supposed to as you're snoozing (me).

    Promising review: "These sheet straps are the best purchase I have ever made. I bought a new bed and had to put a thick mattress protector on it for the warranty to remain active, so my sheets fit very snugly. I toss and turn a lot and my dog moves around a lot, so the sheets were always coming off the corner. I bought these, and it only took a couple of minutes to put on. It’s been a week and my sheets have stayed in place. This was the perfect simple and cheap solution for a major annoyance." —Shariece

    10. An ice cube tray with a lid to keep your ice fresh and freezer tidy!

    a hand putting the ice cub tray with a lid on it into the freezer

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE ice cubes in my drinks, and it's so annoying to have ice cube problems. I really researched ice cube trays and read a lot of reviews until I found these trays. It's so nice not to have to worry about spilling water just trying to get them in there. Also, they come out of the tray so easily! No more fighting to get the cubes out. These just kind of pop out when you press down on one side." —Kalisa

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. Double shower hooks so you can chance your shower liner and curtain whenever you please without any fuss.

    the dual shower hooks holding up a liner

    Promising review: "I'm so happy to no longer have to deal with the shower curtain or liner falling off of the hook. I love the fact that the double hook allows me to remove either the liner or shower curtain without the hassle of removing both. I don't know why I waited so long to order these." —Tanner L.

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three finishes).

    12. A Levo II oil infuser you'll use to infuse your own olive oils, butter, candles, or skincare products with fresh herbs the easy way.

    the yellow oil infusing machine / Via @levo_oil

    All you have to do is fill the herb pod, set your dry or activation cycle, add oil or butter, set your infuse cycle, dispense, and enjoy!

    Psst, this item is due to ship on June 15th!

    Promising review: "Although it was a little over a month wait for my Levo II to come in, it has been one of the best kitchen appliances I have ever purchased. Speedy infusions & tasty creations. I will always brag on how much I love my Levo and continue to recommend it to my friends and family members for years to come ❤️ Thank you Levo!" —Peyton M.

    Get it from Levo Oil for $299.99+ (available in five colors).

    13. Sock-pairing clips to stop all your pairs of socks from getting discombobulated right from the start.

    a person holding the sock clips in front of a washing machine

    Just clip your dirty socks onto this gadget, throw the entire thing into the washing machine, and all your socks will come out clean and in pairs!

    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in five colors).

    14. An under-desk headphone mount so you can keep those noise-canceling headphones right where you need them. Like for those cars that make nonstop farting noises as they drive down the street!

    two pairs of headphones hanging under the desk

    This mount uses the same 3M adhesive as GoPro so it should be ultra secure.

    Promising review: "A simple, elegant solution to keep your desktop free of its much needed real estate. My gaming headset takes up a lot of room, and it's one of those things that is awkward to store without either a stand or a product like this." —Hugh K.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    15. NordVPN will give you your very own Virtual Private Network and protect your internet data from being viewed or collected.

    A Virtual Private Network encrypts all of your important internet data and prevents your internet service provider, hackers, others from viewing or collecting your internet information. So whenever you're using public Wi-Fi, working on the road, or you just don't want anyone browsing your browsing history, you can go about any of your online business knowing your info is safe and secure.

    Get it from NordVPN for $‪3.71+/month for two years.

    16. A fragrant, nontoxic candle that'll eliminate pet odors and other ungodly smells from the air and replace them with relaxing scents.

    the lavender candle burning on a table top

    Each candle can burn for about 60–70 hours. They are made from 100% soy wax and are paraffin-, dye-, and allergen-free.

    Promising review: "I just got the candle yesterday and have burned it twice, three hours each time. I had a guest today and the first thing she commented on was how nice my apartment smelled. The smell is not strong and that makes me happy because I really hate the overpowering smells of the popular deodorizers. I have a senior dog that cannot make it outside all the time. He uses pee pads and is really good about it, but after almost two years of this routine, I had begun to dread walking in the door after being out for awhile. This candle just makes the room smell fresh and that's exactly what I wanted." —Moldy in Maryland

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in 30 scents).

    17. A cute set of ceiling fan chain pulls to ensure you'll never pull on the wrong chain again.

    a reviewer's photo of the fan and light bulb chains hanging from a ceiling fan

    Promising review:  "Absolutely adorable! They add panache to the fan, and you never have to worry about which pull to choose. The set also makes it easier for me to reach them. They do not get in the way and are a sturdy fit into the original chain. Would highly recommend to anyone." —Scholar Mama

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    18. A shower curtain with mesh pockets so you can get tons of extra storage for your skincare and bathing products.

    the clear shower curtain with pockets holding a washcloth, back scrubber, shower wash and other items

    It measures 70 inches x 72 inches. Check out our review of this mesh pocket shower curtain (#2 on the list)!

    Promising review: "This liner may be the most useful product I've ever purchased! It allows you to organize all your various bath products in conveniently sized mesh pockets. The pockets are strong enough to hold full shampoo and conditioner bottles without tearing away from the liner. No more worries about cluttered edges causing things to fall off the sides of the bathtub. No more nasty soap scum from bars of soap resting on the edge of the tub. No more rust circles from cans of shaving cream. It's brilliant!" —G. Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $18.67. Or, check out a mesh organizer you can add on to your existing shower curtain.

    19. A personalized fleece bath robe that'll make your bathroom feel like a luxury hotel room every time you step into your robe. Plus it's machine washable!

    Personalization Mall

    Get it from Personalization Mall for $55.99.

    20. An electric egg cooker for anyone who has a passion for soft-boiled or deviled eggs, but still can't quite figure out the timing. This genius little machine does it all for you.

    the miny colored egg cooker surrounded by deviled eggs

    It can make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and individual omelets.

    Promising review: "I bought this egg cooker for the first time a year and a half ago, and it is awesome. I hate having a single-purpose appliance in my kitchen, but this is worth it. Making hard-boiled eggs was always hit or miss for me, even if it was timed perfectly. (I admit I forgot about the eggs more than once!) This cooker makes PERFECT eggs every single time, to the exact hardness I desire with no green ring on the yolk. Even better, the shell slides off without taking half the egg white with it! My favorite use is to pop some eggs in when I get home and prep a salad. By the time the salad is ready, the eggs are done. I can even leave the kitchen and still hear when they are done because of the buzzer. I've purchased five more of them for family for Christmas this year and can't wait to get everyone on board the Dash Go Egg Cooker train!" —A. M. Hinshaw

    Get it from Amazon for $17.07+ (available in five colors).

    21. A dishwasher magnet to stop you from grabbing a cup from the dishwasher for a glass of water in the middle of the night, only to discover that cup is in fact, dirty and filled with dried goop, before you put it to your lips.

    the white magnet on the dishwasher

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." —Colmac

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in two colors).

    22. A motion-sensor toilet light so you can get yourself over to the glowing toilet without dealing with way too-bright fluorescents when you've gotta go.

    the toilet glowing blue with all of the colors showing underneath the image

    This LED toilet light has 16 colors that can work on a rotation or as a solid color.

    Promising review: "This seemingly silly little gadget has turned out to be great! The light level (brightness) can be dimmed down if desired, and the color can be set to whatever you want, but the bottom line is that you don't need to turn on a bright overhead light (which wakes me up and makes me angry, not a good combination) when you need to go into the bathroom at night. Cleaning it is a breeze, too; what seems like it's going to be a problem...isn't. I can't recommend this toilet night light highly enough, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Could be on the gift list this December." —Lee R. Gurr

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    23. And a bidet to give your bathroom a quick but powerful bathroom upgrade. Not to mention the savings on TP.


    Promising review: "I am loving my Tushy! It is powerful and so easy to install! Not gonna lie, I wish my sink was on the same wall so I could do the warm water option but it is super effective and definitely wakes you up! I believe this is the best way to keep things happily clean and, coupled with my Squatty Potty, I think next year is going to be the year of the happy BM!" —Natalie D.

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (available with three different knob colors).

    24. A waterproof notepad you'll jot down all those genius shower thoughts on.

    It comes with a pencil. Check out another waterproof notebook you can bring on the go!

    Promising review: "For someone with mild ADD or anxiety as I have, this was life-changing. It seems silly, but for anyone with a busy life or just stressed, this is one of the simplest, most valuable things I can think of. Beyond that, I have 5-starred it because I've had one for 18 months and can't find any flaw or way the product can be improved. It's simple and does what it's supposed to. So why do I say life-changing? Rule number one when under stress is get things out of your head and captured somewhere so you can actually focus on whatever task might be at hand without worrying about forgetting. The shower was the one place I couldn't capture anything and often where everything came to mind." —Adrian J Gell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75.

    25. An adjustable measuring cup who is here to help you make peanut butter swirl brownies and other drool-worthy recipes with as little mess as possible.

    a person using the measuring cup to pour out some oil

    It has a 2-cup capacity and is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. The silicone disk inside acts as a squeegee and scrapes off any leftover residue. It also comes apart completely for thorough cleaning.

    Promising review: "This is the greatest kitchen tool ever! I cook and bake often and was forever having to first dig for, then clean endless numbers of measuring cups; I actually had three sets. No more though. I just need this one extremely well made, adjustable measuring cup. It works perfectly for me for all kinds of things, such as flour, butter, syrups, dressings, oils, etc. If I am baking, I will first use it to measure the dry items. I then just wipe it out with a paper towel and measure out the butter, etc. This way involves less washing. The suction is as effective as day one, and the units of measure on it are clear and not at all faded." —Gabriella W.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    26. A comfy futon for lounging and movie time, and it folds down to a guest bed for when your friends/family are crashing for the night.

    the camel faux leather futon in a living room

    Get it from Novogratz for $339 (available in 10 colors).

    27. A couch coaster to keep coffee and fizzy water nearby always — an improvment to any room in the house if you ask me.

    the cup holder being used to hold four different drinks

    Promising review: "I don’t have room in my small living room for coffee or more than one small side table. But I want my guests to be able to have a place to put their beverage while they relax and sit on the couch. This is sturdy, stable, and washable and sits nicely on my couch arms. I bought two of these, one for each couch arm." —Kar-Bear

    Get it from Amazon for $25 (available in five colors).

    28. An outlet shelf that'll charge and store electric toothbrushes, clippers, and more!

    two toothbrushes being held on the outlet shelf

    Promising review: "Gives me extra room in the bathroom! Perfect for charging my Clarisonic brush. The one in my bedroom has saved my phone from being stepped on in the middle of the night. Genius invention." —BeeBerman

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three finishes).

    29. An antimicrobial mattress with three foam layers that'll give you just the right balance of bouncy and coziness one needs in a mattress, according to satisfied reviewers.

    Tuft & Needle

    Promising review: "This bed is so amazing, I was nervous buying a bed without first trying it out, but with the 100-night guarantee, I knew I had plenty of time to change my mind. But guess what, I'm keeping this one!" —Deb

    Get it from Tuft & Needle for $695+ (available in six sizes and four colors).

    30. A laundry basket to make carrying laundry back and forth easier. Bonus: It folds up when not in use.


    It measures 21.25 inches long x 13.25 inches wide x 18.5 inches high when opened and can carry two full loads of laundry at once.

    Promising review: "I have a special needs child situation at home, and I legit have to wash a minimum of three loads of clothes every single day, often as many as six or seven in a day. I have had laundry hampers and laundry baskets coming out the wazoo forever! Bought five of these (three to start, two more when I got the first and fell in love). Now, in those super rare moments when all the laundry is washed, dried, folded, and put away, I just fold these back down like they were when they arrived, and they go under the corner of the bed or between the washer and dryer. In the event I need to fill with wet items, a tall kitchen garbage bag fits perfectly as a 'liner'. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!" —BDR

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in eight colors).

    31. A rechargeable wireless touch sensor lamp so you can add a warm glow to any corner of your bedroom or living room.

    the lamp sitting on a nightstand

    Promising review: "The power went out so I bought three to four of these for emergencies. Now, I use them every day. I loved them so much, I bought like 10 more to replace our nightstand lamps and to give them out as gifts. They are both functional and beautiful. I use them to walk around at night in the house without disturbing others to the bathroom or working late. I will also be taking them camping soon. It is dimmable, and bright enough to read or low enough to use as a night light. Having four completely lights up a whole room. The handle is brilliant. That is one of the best features." —latte happy

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99.

    32. A compact yet powerful blender that'll look great on your countertop without taking up too much space, and it will whip up soups, sauces, dips, and prep work in no time at all!


    Promising review: "This blender does it all and looks beautiful in the process. Unlike other bulky blenders, this is one I don't mind leaving on my counter. The pre-programmed settings make things like smoothies a just set and start and it goes through all the speeds to blend and crush to perfection. I'm actually making homemade tomato soup as I write this, it comes out smooth and hot. I love the self-cleaning feature and it even has a safety feature that the blender will not start unless the lid is on properly. All the bells and whistles at an amazing price." —HomeCook5

    Get it from Zwilling for $299.99 (available in two colors).

    33. An adorable wall-mount cloud magnetic to make finding your keys a breeze as you head out the door for the day.

    a reviewer's photo of the cloud holding up keys

    Promising review: "One of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now. Hasn't lost any magnetism." —Makenah

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    34. A set of floating bookshelves so you can show off your novel collection and keep good books within reach without taking up an entire wall's worth of precious storage space.


    Promising review: "I cannot believe how awesome these bookshelves look in my room. With my classic leather bound books stacked neatly on top, these apparently floating books give the room a sense of charm and intrigue. I am so glad I got these shelves. They are easy to install and each can safely hold three of my large leather-bound books. They do not wobble or shake. They are very stout and sturdy, and I do not have any worries with the weight they bear. I am confident they will securely hold to the wall and keep my books (and sheetrock) unharmed. The metal is durable and long-lasting. So many of my friends and family have complimented these statement pieces and have gotten some of their own book collections." —Burrells

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    35. An air filter you'll count on to keep the air in your bedroom, art studio, or workout space crisp and clean.

    the black filter in an entryway

    Promising review: "Just a lifesaver! I have a small art studio room and I use this air filter daily. We had to have unexpected work done inside our home and I am very sensitive and have allergies. So this made my small room a refuge. It outputs fresh, cooler air — I put it on level three for about an hour before I go work in my room and then I put it down to level one. So it works for me! Very pleased with the product." —Karyn

    Get it from Amazon for $149.51.

    36. A hanging jewelry organizer to turn that pile of tangled jewelry mess in the corner into an organized masterpiece.

    a reviewer's before and after shot of jewelry tangled up and then hanging on the organizer

    This will fit over any standard hanger. One side has 32 clear pockets and the other side has 18 hooks and loops.

    Promising review: "I needed something that would save me space but where I could still see all of my jewelry. These things are extremely durable. I bought two of them and have probably 50 or so necklaces on one side and maybe 30 pairs of earrings on the other side. There is not a single tear in it. In the other one, I keep nail polishes. It is very convenient because you can see all the colors, and it does not take up that much space." —Nellie F.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in three colors).

    37. A shower drink holder for those who like to enjoy a glass of red along with a long relaxing bath at the end of the work week.

    a hand reaching for the clear wine glass holder

    Promising review: "Such a simple idea, how is this just coming into my life now? I didn't think showers could get any better, but now I have a brew/wine within reach at all times. Really helps take the edge off after a long day. The thing is way sturdier than you'd expect, I've tugged on it and it's not going anywhere. A truly perfect product. This $13 piece of plastic is working as hard as my therapist and I stan." —Steven

    Get it from Amazon for $14.85 (available in fivecolors).

    38. A Turkish coffee set that'll make flavorful and delicious coffee for two, or all sorts of chocolate creations if you get creative with it!


    Turkish coffee is one of my favorites!

    Promising review: "Perfect size for brewing two cups of Turkish coffee. Arrived super fast and as ordered. I am delighted with my purchase." —JackieJ

    Get it from Crystalia for $19.99.

    39. A gadget to catch the mess of laundry detergent before it becomes a sticky and annoying pile of goo on your countertop!

    an attachment that hooks onto the spout of the detergent

    Promising review: "I've only had this for a week, and I'm already wondering how I lived without it. Finally, a solution for less mess in the laundry room. No more messy detergent leaks, drips, or a cap covered in detergent. I would recommend this product to anyone; it's a game-changer!" —makenna

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.44.

    40. And a pack of motion-sensing LED lights you'll use to get a little light as you walk into each room in your house without fumbling for the light switch.


    They're battery-powered (three AAA batteries; not included) for cordless installation. They automatically turn on within 10 feet and automatically shut off after 15 seconds of no motion detected.

    Promising review: "Excellent unwired lights for places that would benefit from having lights but you don’t want the hassle and expense of hiring an electrician to do the wiring for the lights. I have four of these lights inside hallway shelves. This hallway gets a lot of foot traffic. In the evening, these lights get triggered on by a passerby by at least 20 times. I’ve had these lights for two whole months, and the original batteries are still good to go. Please be advised that these white lights are rather cool temperature lights. I would estimate around 5,000K. If you’re looking for something slightly warmer (i.e. slightly more yellow) then opt for the warm white version." —H. Jonathan K. Park

    Get them from Amazon: a six-pack for $21.99+ (available in four colors) or a three-pack for $14.99+ (available in two colors).
