    41 Gadgets To Buy On A Random Evening Just To Improve Your Mood

    If you're seeing this, consider it your sign to buy a Baby Yoda night light.

    1. 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've finally find them.

    2. An Owlet Smart Sock that'll help any new parent feel comfortable heading off to sleep — it'll track the baby's heart rate and oxygen level, tell you when they need you, and measure how long they slept. Magical.

    3. A portable karaoke microphone to transform any gathering into a party from the moment you connect it to the app of your choosing. Ahem, that's just me clearing my throat to treat you all to my rendition of Aladdin's "A Whole New World."

    4. A Dyson V15 Detect cordless vacuum, complete with 10 tools and a ton of high-tech features (like a dust-highlighting laser!) your parents won't even know what to say when they see how incredibly it cleans.

    5. An ultra thin electrical cover so you can finally enjoy full access to the outlet behind your dresser — plug this bad boy in and *poof* you'll have not one, not two, but SIX new outlets at your disposal.

    6. A milk frother to pack a powerful, spinning punch despite looking rather delicate. It'll help transform your at-home coffee into one worthy of an actual spot on your 'gram (seriously, a fleeting IG story simply won't do it justice!).

    7. A mini bag sealer that'll make it easier than ever to sneak a few cookies out of your partner's favorite dessert that they always leave a note over that says "DO NOT EAT THESE." Use this to reseal the packaging — they'll never know 😉.

    Promising review: "This little iron is very handy. Great for resealing plastic bags. Even though it is small it is made in a way to fit over a full-sized bag of chips. It heats up in 30 seconds and comes in a nice little case. Very cool! The main reason I wanted something like this is that I often buy fancy crackers or nuts for charcuterie boards and by the time I have my next party the items have gone stale ... this is a way to really save on those and keep the fresh in between parties!" —Laura Graham

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four colors).

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

    9. A Magic Bullet blender you can count on to help you re-create the green juice or smoothies you used to pick up on your way to the office.

    10. 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).

    11. An air purifier, a must-have for any pet owners who spend all of their time snuggling up with their furry friend. This lil' gadget will capture unwanted pet dander, pollen, dust, and more.

    13. An Oculus Quest VR gaming system so you can feel like you're venturing outside of the house without actually leaving your living room.

    14. A tabletop fireplace with removable glass so you can enjoy a freshly made s'more any time of year — yum.

    16. An intense ball launcher your pup will love you even more for buying — you'll be able to REALLY toss that tennis ball without being limited by your inability to throw.

    17. An Echelon Smart Bike to make you feel like you're in the midst of an intense workout class without the added pressure of *actually* being around people.

    19. A thin bar light to brighten your gaming area so you can happily continue to play hours and hours (AND HOURS) of World of Warcraft without your partner asking "are you still sitting in the dark?"

    20. A tiny handheld vacuum disguised as an adorable ladybug who will be more than eager to help you clean the table after a particularly messy meal — wish I could say the same about your roommate.

    21. A Baby Yoda night-light that, for lack of a better term, will become the *light of your life*.

    22. A wireless charger that'll open up to reveal an array of cords to ensure you'll be able to charge any device anywhere at anytime. Welcome to the future, my friends.

    24. A Dyson Corrale straightener that'll make you never want to use another brand's again — it can be used for 30 minutes without a cord, has flexible plates, and chimes to let you know when it's done heating up.

    25. A rechargeable light necklace to toss around your doggo's neck before heading out on a walk at dusk — no need to stress about your leash-less pup getting lost in the dark. I can also see this being great for anyone who lets their dog roam around a big backyard at night.

    26. A backlighting kit, perfect for anyone whose gaming screen is in your shared bedroom so your partner can turn off the overhead lights and get some shut-eye while you play 'til your heart's content.

    27. A wall charger with six outlets and two USB ports in case you've managed to gather as many gadgets and gizmos as Ariel in The Little Mermaid and will want them charged at all times.

    28. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with an anti-glare screen so any bookworm can happily virtually flip through the pages of a novel while basking in the sun.

    29. A pretty-in-pink K-cup coffee maker for anyone who prefers to pop in a pod of their choosing, press a single button, and enjoy their caffeine ASAP. Not to mention the machine itself is adorable.

    30. A motion-activated toilet light, a must-have for anyone who is tired of stumbling over themselves when they get up in the middle of the night to pee.

    31. A curtain of twinkle lights to make you feel like you're sleeping inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?

    32. A garage door opener you can control from your phone — no more wondering if you remembered to shut the door after you drove away then panicking about it for the rest of your outing.

    33. A wireless remote kit that'll make turning on holiday lights (or honestly, any lights!) a snap — no fumbling with a bunch of light strands every evening to make your Clark Griswold vision a reality. This gadget is a homeowner's dream come true.

    34. A universal remote attachment, because no one wants to fumble with three different remotes trying to figure out which one will turn the TV on.
