1. A rechargeable lighter, so you can light every candle in your house to create the *perfect* ambiance without concern you'll run out of lighter fluid.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again.

Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super minor annoyance. It's a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" β€”Jee W

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

2. A mug warmer, because every day is a little bit brighter when it includes a hot cup of coffee rather than a lukewarm one β€” especially when it's below 30 degrees outdoors., Amazon

We've all been there β€” making our coffee or tea only to set it down and forget about until it's cooled down completely. Thanks to this mug warmer none of us ever have to suffer through another cold cup of caffeine again! It has received over 4K five-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's a big freakin' deal.

Promising review: "I'm a chronic coffee forgetter. I can't drink it straight from the brewer (too hot for me) so I set my mug down to cool slightly and often get distracted. Of course I then come back to my coffee to find it's already cold. I've currently got the warmer at my office and it's working great. I can sip my coffee leisurely over the course of an hour and it's still nice and warm." β€”Elle

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

3. A Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite so you can socialize as much (or as little) as you want from the comfort of your own couch.

nintendo / Via

The Nintendo Switch is a great console to give those who are more ~reserved~ a chance to connect with others when they feel like it. You can play games like Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening on your own or join a friend to play Luigi's Mansion 3 game. This product is a winner for everyone!

Promising review: "The Switch is Nintendo's best device since the N64. I use my Switch every day. I commute by train so this has been perfect for me. There has never been a handheld this good. The transition to and from docked mode is seamless. The battery life is also pretty decent. Overall, it is a great device. Nintendo's back!" β€”Arjun S. Kahlon

Get it from Amazon: Nintendo Switch for $299 (available in grey or neon blue/red), Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.96 (available in four styles).

4. An external battery charger that'll save you when you inevitably leave the house before charging your phone...again.


With over 1.9K five-star reviews, this external battery is just what you need for a snowstorm! Whether you lose power or you simply enter such a cozy state you can't bear the thought of getting out of bed to charge your phone, this product is essential for keeping your battery charged.

Promising review: "This bad boy holds a lot of power for charging iPhones multiple times (like on a long journey away from power). Plus it holds a charge pretty well. Rechargeable lithium batteries are known to leak power over time and this will, too, but the capacity is so high that the leakage is inconsequential. I charged mine and let it sit for a month without using it. It still showed four of four dots and recharged to the top fairly quickly (sorry, I didn’t time it)." β€”Steve B

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

5. An Amazon Firestick so you can watch talked about shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel or sync up your Disney+ account and never leave your couch again.


Promising review: "We have been getting steady increases in our cable TV bill with no increases in services. So we thought we would cut the cord and this device became the focal point for making that transition. We are very pleased with the performance of this device. It is easy to setup with prompts provided as you power it up. We then added our favorite apps, (also very easy), and have never looked back at the cable TV being gone. We now save over $100 a month without those charges for cable TV. If you are thinking of making the leap into cord cutting, this is the way to go." β€”Stephen H. Jenkins

Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

6. A John Frieda hot brush for anyone who looooves to get pampered with a blow out but can't actually afford to get one every week.

BuzzFeed /

Promising review: "I am not a paid person who writes reviews. In fact I usually don't write them at all. But let me start out by saying holy crap! This is amazing, not only was it so easy and fast... I have a salon blowout that actually looks great...and I never went to the salon! So I can't so my hair at all ever. The best I do is flat iron or messy bun, mkay? But I'm obsessed. When I go to the salon it looks great for two days and then bam I'm crying, 'cause I can't get my hair pretty like she did it, and now I hate it and myself. Sound familiar? Well I'm living proof this is amazing and it truly works. I won't lie I was hesitant because this looks and sound like crap/too good to be true. It's not!!! Happy buying β€” I'm buying another for my mom for Xmas how awesome!" β€”tangi raysor

Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

7. A 3D printer, because I'm sure you've been dying to create your own objects like, say, a mini Baby Yoda toy of your own (since they're not coming out until the spring!).


This specific printer comes with a tempered glass plate to make objects easier to remove and the hot bed more flat. My best friend's dad uses his to create custom houses for her Christmas village β€” pretty magical. Just imagine all the things you could make!

Promising review: "Amazing prints, compared to the nightmare prints I've seen most other people printing on more expensive machines. Make sure you set the belt tensions quite high to eliminate any play. To level it, just use a thin sheet of paper, adjust each corner of the build plate HOT until it literally touches the bed and back off just enough to let the paper move with some resistance. My first prints were done in my garage where the ambient temps was 115 F from record AZ summer heat, so it can take take the heat." β€”Bat Man

Get it from Amazon for $235.99.

8. An AirFly wireless transmitter you can use to connect your Airpods to the tiny airplane TV so you'll never have a last-minute freak out about having to buy cheap wired headphones from your seat.


Promising review: "These work amazingly well. I was surprised that you can charge and use them at the same time. I use them on planes to listen to the in-flight entertainment with my AirPods. I also use them to listen to music on my laptop with my AirPods. They work really well. Now, I don't have to carry my wired earbuds with me when I travel anymore. They really work as advertised. I have not had any issues with them since I started using them." β€”RPL

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three options).

9. A lightsaber umbrella that'll turn you into a jedi every time the skies open up., Amazon

Promising review: "OMGOSH! I'm a struggling Sith who was able to purchase this awesome lightsaber umbrella for way less then the other more official lightsaber umbrellas that go for about 80 bucks. Took it out in the field for the first time today and it passed with all flying colors (literally) since I'm able to press the button and emit different colors including my favorite, RED." β€”daniel ortiz

Get it from Amazon for $29+ (available in four styles).

10. An Instax camera kit to help break your habit of only taking photos on your phone and NEVER printing them out to decorate your walls.


Includes a Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Camera (with a selfie mirror!), 20 sheets of film, 10 sheets of rainbow film, 20 sticker frames, and a leather carrying case.

Promising review: "Bought it for my 10 year old daughter for her birthday sleepover. It was a huge hit! All the girls wanted one by the next day!" β€”Momof3lilmonkeys

Get it from Amazon for $82.95+ (available in five color combos; also available with just the camera).

11. A PhoneSoap UV sanitizer you can toss your phone into for a quick 10 minutes after you get home to get rid of the grime that's surely lurking around.


I have one of these bad boys and can validate that it is SO easy to use. I pop my phone into it when I get in the shower and click the lil' button on the front to start the cleaning process. You can also charge your phone while it's inside the machine. Fellow germaphobes β€” you can thank me later.

Promising review: "Bought this along with a set of agar plates to test it for ourselves. We swabbed my daughter's and husband's phones before and after use. It does work. We are very happy with the product." β€”Ginger

Get it from Amazon for $69.95+ (available in nine colors).

12. A charging dock to keep your area free of pesky wires and add an extra element of style to any room.


I have this charging dock and it has been a game changer. I always had an extra-long charging cable along the side of my bed and now my room is wire-free! Even with a chunky phone case I've had no issues getting my phone to connect and charge seamlessly. And it simply looks pretty β€” I have no complaints.

Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in five styles).

13. A webcam that'll let you pretend you ARE your favorite streamer so your friends (and whoever else) can tune in and watch as you play your way through Apex Legends.


Promising review: "I have never had the camera disconnect during a gaming stream. It is the best webcam I have ever owned. It works well right out of the box and I did not need to mess with white balance, occasionally I just up the vibrancy slider a bit to offset my naturally pale vampire skin. :) It does not lose saturation over time like some cameras do, it keeps its color consistent and sharp and the focus is right on the money and not all over the place." β€”RexRed

Get it from Amazon for $63.93+ (available in two styles and with or without a tripod stand).

14. A heated massager pillow anyone will be happy to have after a no good very bad day.

Promising review: "I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I'm going to try my feet also. I've been wanting something like this for quite some time and I'm thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful." β€”Stephanie T.

Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

15. An ambient back-lighting kit from NZXT you can use to add some ~mood lighting~ to your TV or computer monitor.


Promising review: "I've built two custom PCs and I used the NZXT Hue on both. This product offers professional looking lighting to a custom pc build and is extremely easy to install." β€”Brian M. Clarke

Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

16. And a gaming keyboard that features a customizable rainbow backlight and that'll make anyone say, "Ooooh!",

Promising review: "Can't say how many keyboards I've gone through. I am a gamer and as any real gamer I eat at my desk, so crumbs, food, etc. gets on the surface of my desk and that being my keyboard, this keyboard removes that worry. I've spilled water and food over this keyboard and I can safely remove it after. The sound level is pretty quiet, keys are responsive, the hand rest isn't much but doesn't bother me at all, and I like that the space bar has some grip." β€”Andy

Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

17. An ever-popular Instant Pot with so many uses you'll need to take a deep breath before deciding what to make with it first., Amazon

The Duo Plus replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sautΓ©, steam, warm, sterilize... and oh, it makes cakes too. Read all about why the Instant Pot is changing how we cook in my BuzzFeed coworker's review.

Promising Review: "I deliberated about buying one of these for so long (over a year). I regret all of this deliberation, because now that I have it, I'm not sure how I lived without it. Rice turns out perfectly every time. It's amazing. I push a button and walk away and end up with edible rice every single time. I love that this has so many uses in our combined vegetarian/omnivorous household. This Instant Pot produced the only pork dish that my husband has ever liked. I made an amazing vegan curry. I've made soy milk, almond milk, and cashew milk yogurts, and they've all been fantastic. I'll never 'boil' an egg any other way ever again. Eggs turn out perfectly every time and they are so easy to peel. Stop deliberating and buy this now!" β€”Laura

Get it from Amazon for $59+ (available in three sizes).

18. A Kindle Paperwhite β€” a must-have for any bookworm who prefers to kill time by reading rather than scrolling through nonsense on Instagram.

Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle Amazon has released to date! And β€” as is made abundantly clear by the photo above β€” it's 100% waterproof.

Promising review: "I love the fact that I can read on this Kindle in both daylight and dim light conditions. It is so light and compact, which makes it easy to hold, easy to travel with, and the battery lasts forever. I love it." β€”Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

And check out our full breakdown of the Kindle Paperwhite here.

19. A Samsung TV that'll disguise itself as an elegant picture frame when its not in use. A magical marvel in home decor and technology if you ask me.,

This is the number one thing on my wish list right now β€” it's so cool and I'm constantly staring at it in stores. I love that it has the ability to transform into a piece of art but also act as a room's main source of entertainment.

Promising review: "This TV is badass! It’s more expensive, but that’s because it’s so much different than other TVs. If you hate the way normal TV’s look, get one of these. It mounts flat against the wall and will look like a picture frame. The one connect box is great too. Just one cord comes down to a box you can stash somewhere that you connect all your inputs into. Definitely spend the extra money to get one of the other bezel covers. It really will look like a picture on the wall." β€”Chris Fulmer

Get it from Amazon for $797.99+ (available in four sizes).

20. A FOREO LUNA mini 2 facial cleansing brush for every skin type β€” an excellent treat for anyone who is always on the hunt for the next addition to their skincare routine (ahem, YOU).

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

My fellow BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer loves this thing. Here's what she had to say:

"The acne scars on my cheeks from a series of breakouts are fading fast, and I get new acne very rarely β€” they're more like a pimple here and there occasionally when I have to fly somewhere (curse you, dry airplanes) or get stressed or.... who even knows why my skin freaks out sometimes. Never thought I'd ever put a no-makeup selfie on the internet, but that's how much I love this thing."

Check out our full review of the FOREO LUNA Mini 2 here!

Get it from Amazon for $139+ (available in six colors).

21. An electronic Chewbacca mask that actually replicates his sound and will have your friends saying "what's cookin' good wookin'?",

Promising review: "I may not be as famous as the Chewbacca Mom but I have been every bit as HAPPY since I received my mask! I've worn it in so many places and have had a BLAST with it.....and I'm definitely older than the recommended 4-year-old. Driving around in it is the best and perfectly safe as the eye holes are plenty big to see peripherally! Of COURSE they would be! Chewbacca has to be on the alert for the dark side at all times!! Buy one of these and you will ONLY be on the BRIGHT side and the FORCE of LAUGHTER WILL be with you!! I may have to buy a few more for friends. She was right....WORTH EVERY PENNY!" β€”Espy

Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

22. An electric toothbrush with a subscription-based brush head refill, so you'll never have to remember to buy another toothbrush or brush head again. Now THAT is something to smile about. / Via quip, / Via quip

Do your boast about being a minimalist? Or maybe you just have ZERO counter space? Then the Quip might just be the toothbrush of your dreams. It has a three-month battery life, comes with a wall mount and travel case, and is super quiet during use. I own one myself and love how it encourages me to brush thoroughly.

Promising review: "I truly love this toothbrush, feels great when done. Like the fact that it tells you when to move to the next quadrant. People in general do not take the two minutes to brush their teeth, much less concentrate on each quadrant and change the brush every three months. Anyway, I love it and will recommend it." β€”Maria S.

Check out our full review of the Quip here.

Get it from Quip for $25+ (available in eight colors and a variety of subscription plans).

23. A 24-inch 144Hz PC gaming monitor that'll make your Fortnite gameplay look smoother than ever β€” because that's what's most important in life right now, OK?


My husband uses this as his main screen for when he's playing games like Fortnite or Call of Duty on his PC. He loves how seamless the gameplay look compared to most standard monitors that top out at 60hz. Two thumbs up from my household!

Promising review: "I picked this monitor out because I'd heard of the brand through watching eSports and I wanted to support a company that supported one of my interests. I expected to get a 'normal monitor' experience and pay a slightly higher price for quality build. I was very wrong, the difference between gaming on this monitor and a regular one is night and day. Games feel entirely more 'tactile' and real time. I am better able to place shots, see what's going on, and I feel like I have better control over my character. It is bright and crisp, colors are vivid, and the action is unlike anything I've played on before. If you are any kind of gamer or power-user on your PC I cannot recommend this monitor enough. I will never again think of displays as just interchangeable peripherals; even with a very high end gaming PC, you are not having the full experience unless you have a monitor that is comparable with this one." β€”Spybreak

Get it from Amazon for $199+ (also available in 27-inches).

24. A set of LED lightsaber chopsticks you'll probably misplace in your utensil drawer but then have the opportunity to exclaim "THESE are the ones I've been looking for!" once you finally find them.


Promising review: "I purchased these for a friend's birthday present (he is a sushi waiter) and these are flippin' AMAZING. I ordered two sets by mistake, but I am totally keeping the second pair for another gift (or for myself!). These are sure to be great conversation pieces and attention getters. Way to go!" β€”T. Redwood

Get two pairs from Amazon for $17.97.

25. A gaming mouse that'll give you such an advantage on your opponents you'll be shouting, "TAKE THAT, SUCKAAAS" in your sleep.

Every gamer needs a fancy mouse! This one has light features that can be customized to WHATEVER color they want, seven programmable mouse buttons, five default DPI levels, and four adjusting polling rate levels. Even if you have no idea what that means, the gamer in your home will simply be in awe over the features.

Promising review: "I was looking for a good budget gaming mouse and this one hit the mark. This mouse has a good feel, fits my hand well, and the buttons have a nice feel as well. They aren't so light that I accidentally press them, but also aren't too heavy. Scroll wheel feels solid and accurate, the rubber coating is grippy and has a nice feel. I also like being able to adjust the sensitivity (DPI) on the fly. This mouse could easily sell for two times the price or more. The styling is also nice without being too gaudy." β€”Jeff G.

Available from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three styles).

26. A "Weather Droplet" filled with a liquid that predicts weather conditions. You'll love keeping an eye on it as a snowstorm approach β€” it's pretty magical.

Weather Droplet

Not only will this gadget help them prep for the following day, but it'll serve as a gorgeous piece of art!

Get it from Weather Droplet for $24.99.

27. A Mickey waffle maker so you can recreate the classic Parks staple and chow down while planning your next magical vacation.


Promising review: "Works great. You can only make one little waffle at a time but it only takes a minute or two per waffle. Worth it if you have Mickey fans in your house!" –CM

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

28. An Oculus Quest VR gaming system that'll let you feel like you're venturing outside of the house without actually leaving your living room.

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Oculus

From the moment I put the headset over my eyes I thought "Wow, I never have to leave the house again!!!" From finally getting a chance to handle a lightsaber while battling it out in the Star Wars universe (which comes with the current Oculus Quest bundle!), adventuring in nature via National Geographic, and battling Angry Birds in a whole new way there is so much at-home fun to be had thanks to this system. I'm personally more introverted, but I still enjoy spending time with family and friends. The Quest has been a great way for me to have a good time interacting with my loved ones without feeling overwhelmed by TOO much chatter. I brought it to Thanksgiving and we had a blast taking turns playing with it. More recently my sister and her boyfriend came over and we spent hours giggling watching one another play. Super fun!

Get it from Oculus for $399.99.

29. And a VZfit virtual workout gadget you can connect to the Oculus for a unique exercise experience that literally will feel ~out of this world~. / Via virzoom, / Via virzoom

Promising review: "Who could have thought that doing an exercise bike has so much fun! Although the explorer graphics are not that great but overall still looks fine and I believe they are finding ways to improve it. Their customer supports were great. Fast response when I have issues in logging in. Worth the experience." β€”Chris

Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

30. A mini tower with 10 outlets that'll act as a battery backup so (God forbid!) the power goes out, you won't lose all the progress you made building your dream home on The Sims.


Promising review: "I am the proud owner of three of these (so far). They're quiet when on AC power. They have great customization. I've muted the beeps and warnings so if the power kicks off, they just take over without distracting me further. I LOVE the two front USB plugs. I charge devices from them all the time. The LED screen is off by default until you press a button, so other than the dimly lit power button on the front, there's no distracting lights or sounds under normal use on AC power. So, how well do they work? Well, I've owned a lot of UPSes. These are by far much quieter than any I've purchased from APC. They have a true sine wave output (which is amazing!), and the 1500VA is perfect for most electronics. The front screen will tell you how much of a load you have plugged in and even an estimate for how long the unit should run given that load if you lost power. So, no surprises!" β€”Ramze

Get it from Amazon for $129.95+ (available in four styles).

31. A Theragun, ideal if stress and your work outs wear your body out and you'd likely benefit from an at-home solution to soothe your tired muscles.


I have one of these bad boys and it has honestly been a game changer. When I posted on my Instagram that I had received one, the responses I got were WILD. People are PASSIONATE about this gadget and now I understand why. I've used it on the arches of my feet and have way less pain than ever before. The nozzle at the end contracts at a high speed (think, a tiny punching machine) that surprisingly doesn't hurt but leaves your body buzzing in a good way.

Don't be intimidated by its appearance. It's simple to use and extremely effective. It feels similar to managing a hand mixer β€” weird, but true. In my opinion, it's worth the money and it actually does work.

Get it on sale from Theragun for $249.

32. Sennheiser noise-cancelling headphones that'll become your fave gadget if you're looking for a little me-time despite living with roommates or a significant other.


My husband relies on this headset for all of his gaming needs. I know they actually work because I'm constantly screaming over whatever he's listening to in order to get his attention (lol). In all seriousness though, he says these are fantastic. The audio is crystal clear and no one has an issue hearing his responses.

Promising review: "My daughter is a professional singer/songwriter. She got into music as a small child. When she was old enough to record herself we looked for the products that would give her a great result. I did a lot of research and Sennheiser was a brand that was often recommended. We bought her Sennheiser headphones which worked out great. So I was happy to try this gaming headset. And once again the Sennheiser brand is excellent. These are very comfortable with great audio. When you spend a lot of time gaming, a quality headset is essential to enhance the experience and these are top notch!" β€”Lee Mellott

Get them from Amazon for $199.95.

33. An advanced Polar M watch designed with technology to make you feel like you have a trainer with you each time you exercise β€” except they won't scold you for slacking on your burpees.


My dad and I tested out this watch and let me tell you β€” it's INTENSE. I workout regularly and this bad boy will definitely keep me in check going forward. It syncs up to an app on your phone that provides you with very detailed statistics on your cardio load, muscle load, and more. It has TONS of workouts you can track ranging from an outdoor walk and golfing to indoor cycling and long distance running. If you're looking to take your workouts to the next level, this will be quickly become part of your routine.

Promising review: "As an avid trail and road runner (running 80-100 mi/week), I cannot review this watch highly enough. Having trained in a variety of watches over the years this watch is by far the best. The battery lasts forever before recharge, it is easy to figure out how to use, and it has all of the relevant features (HR, current pace, average pace, POWER!!!, splits, elevation, etc). As a trail runner, the new power metric has been extremely valuable since it is the only metric that remains constant through hills (HR goes up, pace goes down, power stays the same). Moreover, the watch is comfortable enough to sleep in, and is sleek enough to wear to work in a professional environment! I really have no critiques at this point and would recommend to anyone looking for a performance-oriented, good-looking, comfortable watch." β€”Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $247.20+ (available in sizes S–L and six colors).

34. A sound machine/night light for the parent who is desperate for some decent sleep sometime this decade β€” they need ALL the support they can get.


TBH, as an adult without kids I would still thoroughly enjoy waking up with this soothing lil' gadget.

Promising review: "I have now had the Hatch Baby Rest Night Light for about six months. We started using it when we decided to sleep train our toddler. It works perfectly and is really easy to use and set up. I really like the app; I was easily able to customize everything for when he sleeps, wakes, and his nap time. For his night light, I used a soft amber color and in the morning I have it switch to green when he should be waking up. I think he is just now starting to grasp the concept of the colors, but I can see it being a lot more helpful in the near future. I saw some reviews stating that the white noise was louder than they had wanted it to be, but I did not find that to be the case with me. You can easily control the volume of the sound and the brightness of the light with multiple colors." β€”Pete

Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (also available for purchase with a variety of decorative covers).

35. An expandable portable speaker you can fit easily into your backpack and take with you to the beach or your friend's house party without the hassle of lugging around a clunky, overweight speaker.

Pow Audio

The Una X from POW Audio is water resistant, omnidirectional, Bluetooth compatible and has a battery life of 16 hours. It's the perfect size, if you ask me, and makes bringing ~the fun~ to any gathering easier than ever. My friends and I can't wait to use it at the beach this summer and at backyard barbecues.

Get it from POW Audio for $149.99.

36. A splurge-worthy Dyson vacuum to help you attempt to tackle the never-ending influx of hair, fuzz, and dust that threatens to take over every crevice of your home., Amazon

Honestly, no matter which version of the Dyson stick vacuum you purchase, I can promise you'll be satisfied with the results. I've used a variety of 'em and I can't say enough good things about the product. It doesn't hurt my back to use for an extended period of the time, the battery lasts long enough to clean my entire apartment, and it simply just WORKS. We have ours mounted in a narrow spot alongside our fridge β€” it's really easy to keep in plain sight without being an eyesore.

Promising review: "I love this vacuum. The V10 doesn't disappoint. While it's weird to get used to holding this tiny piece of machinery, it really does an amazing job. It was incredible how much dog fur it picked up! I was pretty grossed out to be honest, to think I lived in this atmosphere for this long 'thinking' it was clean is nuts! I love all the attachments too, they are all top notch and well made. I feel like I can tackle my entire house with this bad boy. AND it's lightweight! I use it on the lowest setting and it still picks up a ton. I don't think I'll ever need the high or medium setting. But I did try the highest setting for a few seconds and literally felt like the vacuum was ATTACHED to the floor, that's how hard it sucked (in a good way)!" β€”Matthew Mintun

Get the V10 from Amazon for $349+ (available in three styles).

37. A wireless remote kit that'll make turning on your twinkle lights (or anything else you hook up to 'em!) a breeze.


Promising review: "I absolutely love these! In my apartment I strung Christmas lights around the top of my bedroom and then did the same in my living room and kitchen. It makes my apartment so much cozier and bright without even having to turn on the overhead. I hated having to plug and unplug them though. When I found out about these, it made life so much easier. I could easily turn the living room ones on as the sunset to brighten up my room, and then if I moved to the kitchen my lights could come on or into my bedroom. And I could shut them off from the other room too. The controller does not have to be directly aimed at the receiver or unblocked. It works just fine from anywhere in my apartment even across doors." β€”Brianna Curtis

Get it from Amazon for $16.44.

38. A Pixar-inspired popcorn machine, because what would go better with a never ending Disney movie marathon than a delicious snack?


Promising review: "I'm totally in love with this cute little thing. This is my first popcorn maker so I wasn't really sure what to expect. It is easy to use and comes 100% assembled. After a few minutes, it just pops away. The little dome is the cover for the popper and you remove the red lid so that the air slits are exposed while popping. When you hear that the pops have slowed down, you turn it off, unplug it, and turn the unit it over to reveal the bowl. You put the little red cap back on in order to catch any un-popped kernels. The popper unit is non-stick, so that helps the kernels not burn. This is totally worth the buy." β€”Leozpride

39. Cable clips to attach to your many charging wires to finally form a manageable system that won't have you fumbling to untangle cords every time you want to charge your phone.


Promising review: "It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!" β€”Nelis Perez

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.97.

40. Or a double extension cord so you can run an endless amount of power throughout your home without trying to track down another outlet.


Each cord is six feet long and has three available plugs.

Promising review: "I have no idea why these are not sold everywhere. PERFECT for my room! I ended up getting this due to my king size bed being against a wall with only one outlet. I needed a way to connect my two lamps on my nightstand and this is absolutely, without a doubt, the very best solution to connecting my lamps and also not having all my outlets taken up. I recommend this to everyone! Also perfect for outlets connected to a switch to turn on and off both lights at the same time." β€”Ryan

Get it from Amazon for $10.98.

41. A Grip Strip made of a non-toxic and hypoallergenic material you'll want to tell everyone about β€” no more watching your phone fly through the air with each sharp turn you make.


Promising review: "Sounds too good to be true but it really works! My car is a cess pit so the strip gets dusty quickly but a quick wipe makes it good as new!" β€”Firebox Customer

Get it from Firebox for $9.99+ (available in packs of three and three colors).

42. A Honeywell Home Thermostat for anyone who likes to think they're actually a meteorologist or likes to plan their hairstyle around what the humidity might be.

Promising review: "This thermostat is terrific. If you want a nice looking, accurate thermostat that does it's job, this is for you. Easy to set up and has a nice app to use while you're away. This doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a Nest but it's almost half the cost. I replaced another Honeywell thermostat when I purchased a new air conditioner. I like the fact you can get the outside temp and humidity as well as the five day forecast in your area. Love the color changes as there are lots of background colors to choose from." β€”pmich10

Get it from Amazon for $119.

43. And a 64-piece IFixit kit for when your most-used gadget gives out and you'd rather try to repair it yourself than buy a new one.

My husband is admittedly a "gadget guy" and has one of these kits for as long as I can remember. He's a big fan of the brand and loves that every set comes with a lifetime warranty.

Promising review: "Seriously, I have been repairing small electronics for decades now, over 30 dang years, and I will say this is probably the best deal and collection you can get for simple to even complicated repairs. It has a crapload of bits, but essentially everything you will need as opposed to the next larger offering, though I am still considering getting that for my dungeon downstairs. I keep this upstairs literally in the kitchen since a lot of impromptu repairs occur at the dining room table, but I have not been let down. This is top notch/quality material and manufacturing. It not only feels comfortable but is very strong and bits do not let go of screws. It has a great deal of bits too, 64 in fact. It pretty much covers all the phone and laptop screws you will encounter and even has some socket ones too. Nice touch." β€”Riboild

Get it from Amazon for $29.99.
