43 Gadgets You'll Probably Want To Try In 2020

Inspector Gadget's got nothin' on you.

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.

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 — especially when it's below 30 degrees outdoors.

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.

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

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.

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.

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!).

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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~.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
