    1. A couple's activity book featuring fun prompts like brainstorming potential matching tattoos and deciding your couples theme song — a must-have for any duo looking to add some lighthearted fun to their day-to-day.


    Promising review: "I highly recommend this book for newlyweds. If you are looking for a way to understand and strengthen your relationship, buy this book! It's a fun five-minute activity you can do with your loved one every night before you go to bed. It's always so much fun to look back at your old entries, too, and see how much your lives and perspectives have changed over the years. By far this was one of the cheapest and best investments that I have made for my relationship!" —HayleyShay

    Get it Amazon for $9.35.

    2. A hair scalp massager you can use to give each other soothing head massages in the shower while also applying shampoo and cleansing your scalps. Sounds like a win-win to me!


    I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I'm really getting in there while I'm washing my hair, but it also re-creates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

    Promising review: "Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I am immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product." —Lisa Agro

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in three colors).

    3. A teeny tiny Magic 8 Ball for making decisions on the spot — like should you order pizza or tacos for dinner? No need to waste any more of your precious time together arguing about food.


    Promising review: "I'm having a blast with this miniature Magic 8 Ball. It sits on the table by my recliner for easy access. With it, I'm now free of the majority of decision-making in my life which relieves me of any stress, anxiety, or uncertainty that might come over me at any moment. I no longer have to take any responsibility for my actions; I can just blame it on the 8 Ball. It fits easily into almost any sized pocket, so, if I'm going out, I can take it along and let it play the same role in my life. This ability to take my new decision-maker with me in smaller form is great! It's a nice return to my childhood, inexpensive, and a much-needed reprieve from the stress of our contemporary society. Everyone should have one and have some light-hearted fun!" —ALW

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    4. A butt mask for a makeshift spa night with a twist the two of you will really get a kick out of — with the added bonus of a smooth booty!

    Amazon, bawdybeauty / Via

    Promising review: "I love these because great skin isn't limited to just your face and neither should the products that facilitate it! These definitely infuse the area with essence like a facial sheet and offer a moisturizing, gently tightening effect so you know they're working! I have tried other products designed for the same area and these were by far the best and least messy." —fountainsoda

    Get a single mask from Amazon for $9.95+ (also available in a set of four).

    5. An ironic garlic chopper inspired by Dracula that you can count on to make you both grin and prevent your fingers from smelling like pungent garlic all day. No promises about your breath, though.


    You can also use it to chop nuts, fruits, and veggies!

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my friend who is a fantastic cook — she uses fresh ingredients almost exclusively — but pressing fresh garlic is a task usually delegated. No longer — Gracula is there for her. She uses him nearly every time she needs garlic (which is basically daily) and months later still makes a point of saying how much she enjoys the gift. I'm pretty sure she likes it better than other gifts I've gotten her which were more expensive/thought out, and I'm fairly certain it's what took me from 'good friend' to 'best friend,' but it be that way sometimes. Anyway, definitely recommended for people who cook with garlic and have a sense of humor." —L

    Get it from Amazon for $17.20.

    6. A stainless steel ring that doubles as a fidget spinner and will keep you both calm, cool, and collected in stressful times. Trust me, even John Legend and Chrissy Teigen probs need to pause and take a breath once in a while (JK, they're perfect).


    Promising review: "I've had this ring for about two weeks now and just had to write a review. I've had the nervous/bored habit of picking at my fingers since I was a kid. I can't remember the last time I've not had at least one nail bed torn up and bloody. For people with similar habits, I can't recommend this ring enough. It's a great, non-distracting way to redirect fidgety behaviors. I've worn it every day since receiving it and for the first time in years I have intact nail beds! Every time I catch myself starting to pick at a dry patch of skin or uneven cuticle on my finger, I rotate the ring a few times and the impulse disappears." —KGL

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 4–12 and six styles).

    7. A massage roller to apply acupressure on the bothersome parts of your feet and make them feel fantastic so neither of you ever have to give a foot massage again. You're SO welcome., Amazon

    Promising review: "I’ve been having so many issues with my feet the last few years. My feet hurt so bad, it’s made me become a hermit. I’ve had tendinitis in both and now plantar fasciitis. I get foot cramps all the time. After just one day with this under my desk at work, I feel a huge difference. My feet no longer feel tight and painful. They feel tingly — in a good way. I look forward to being able to go for a walk and not have to rest along the way. I know it’s meant for feet but I may try it out on my calves. I also love that it’s small, looks nice and doesn’t slide around. I highly recommended this for anyone, foot issues or not, if you sit a lot. Nice way to keep the blood flowing when stuck at a desk." —Vanessa Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $18.75.

    8. A foot file that'll transform your scaly dragon-like heels into soft soles that'll be so smooth your partner won't even recoil if you accidentally touch their leg in bed.


    Promising review: "This thing is pretty amazing. I was skeptical for sure, since I've tried all kinds of lotions, balms, and stone-based products, none of which helped my heels whatsoever. I've worn socks to bed for years, because if I don't the sheets hardly last a week before they have holes rubbed through them. My wife ordered this thing that looks like a mini cheese grater, lol, and after two minutes — two minutes! — of rubbing it on my heel, it's a complete 180. I never would've believed it until I tried it myself. This is well worth double what it costs." —LBK

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    9. Beekeeper's Naturals propolis throat spray to help boost your immune system and *hopefully* protect you from getting the cold your S.O. has had for the last week.


    This lil' spritz of immune support is made of only three ingredients: bee propolis extract, non-GMO vegetable glycerin, and purified water. Be sure to double-check with your physician before introducing any supplements into your diet.

    Promising review: "I work with kids, one-on-one. Every time I think one kid acts the least bit sick (cough, runny nose, etc.) I use two squirts of this product in my mouth. I have been using this for several seasons, and it seems to keep me from catching every little cold that comes along. I can't guarantee this, but so far so good." —JD

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49.

    10. A shower curtain complete with pockets you can use to upgrade your bathroom's storage space without doing something wild like installing a new vanity or cabinets.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this shower curtain. I have been buying this curtain for the past 6 years. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your 'stuff,' this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! I honestly only use like 4–5 of the pockets. You can also use this as a liner and have another more decorative shower curtain on the outside but I personally use it as a shower curtain. I usually change it every 6 months because it does start getting a little soap scummy on the bottom. The best shower curtain/liner money can buy!" —DAtkins

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    11. A magical hair catcher that'll save your relationship and keep your shower looking cleaner than ever.

    Promising review: "No seriously — this is amazing. I have long hair and recently had a baby. It's a wonder I still have any hair based on the clumps I see falling out on a regular basis. This means the poor tub drain is getting clogged all the time, and we're spending ridiculous amounts of time trying to clear it out. I figured if this even worked to catch half of my hair then it would be worth its salt. Holy moly. When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding. We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again. A swipe with toilet paper and the hair blob comes right off. I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!" —sasamo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors).

    12. An ever-popular Instant Pot with so many uses, you won't find yourselves bickering over whose turn it is to cook dinner., 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 sauté, steam, warm, sterilize...oh, it makes cakes, too. Read all about why it's changing how we cook in our full review of the Instant Pot.

    Promising Review: "Perfect addition to the Instant Pot family. This little pot does the same incredible job as its bigger brother and sisters. Great for making the side dishes or smaller main dishes. If you haven't gotten on board the Instant Pot train, do not hesitate! This mini pot even makes yogurt. The benefits to pressure cooking are numerous, using the Instant Pot makes it incredibly easy. Can you tell I'm completely smitten with this little appliance?! It proudly sits on my counter and is used nearly every single day." —Prairie Princess

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

    13. A bottle of Poo-Pourri that'll make sharing a bathroom *stink* a whole lot less — literally.,

    Promising review: "We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare — particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement ('YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I'M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.') he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting now after he leaves." —Supa D

    Get it from Amazon for $8.65+ (available in 25 scents and six sizes).

    14. And a squatty potty to help *move things along* for anyone who typically takes forever in the bathroom.


    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years — I wish this had come into my life sooner. Every time I step off the toilet now I feel lighter, fresher, and like a new person." —MsNiters

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99, or for a more ~aesthetic~ throne, splurge on the clear one for $79.99.

    15. A Revlon one-step hair dryer & volumizer hot air brush to help you achieve your hair goals and cut down the time you spend getting ready so your partner is less likely to ask, "are you almost done?", Amazon

    This brush was all my mom requested for Mother's Day this year, so props to her for being ahead of the influencers who have all been talking about this item nonstop! It's becoming a must-have for anyone who loves a blowout but doesn't have the patience to go get one or lacks the skills to get it done nicely themselves — seriously, it has more than 10.8K five-star reviews on Amazon!

    Promising review: "This is truly the greatest thing since sliced bread!! I've put off buying something like this for years, but finally I gave in with a great deal of trepidation. I shouldn't have waited so long! I mean it cut my hair drying time in HALF and it's SO super easy to use. My hair looks so much better than when I round brush it with a regular hair dryer bc the oval shape gives me better angles to use. If I could go back I'd probably save a year of my life using this instead!!! It's that good. The design of the on-off switch is ingenious, so easy to use. You can use this with one hand! Miracles happen, clearly. You will not regret buying this." —sewgr8nct

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    16. A see-through chemise babydoll that'll have your partner shouting "DAYUMMM!" the moment you enter the room.


    Promising review: "This exceeded my expectations! I ordered this as part of my new collection for my fiancé’s return from overseas. The lace is absolutely stunning, the satin ribbons are so elegant. It fit beautifully, even for my fickle and unpredictable chest. The girls tucked in perfectly and stayed nice and supple looking under the lace. I would definitely recommend this item as would my fiancé... we both have enjoyed it thoroughly!!" —Shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    17. A sound machine/night light for couples who are desperate for some decent sleep sometime this decade.


    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this lamp/white noise machine. I bought a second one, and now everyone in the family wants one (the adults and teen alike!). The options for lamp brightness/dimness, noise volume, and types of white noise are GREAT. We were able to drown out fireworks for my son that were going off RIGHT over our house. The touch option for on/off is great; there is a toddler lock feature we love; you are able to program green-to-rise for kiddos to stay in their rooms until it turns a certain color... love being able to control it from my phone... you can add as many lamps to your app as you want/need. Just LOVE this lamp. The one thing that isn't my favorite is that you have to disconnect/log out of one lamp to connect with another in the app. I wish you could just select each lamp without that extra step, but that's not a huge deal at all. Love it!" —H.P.

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

    18. A pair of Bose QuietComfort noise-cancelling wireless headphones so even the couple who lives in very close quarters can feel like alone time is attainable.


    Promising review: "If anything can save a marriage, it's these, LOL!!! These sound SO GOOD, work so well, and feel so good that you should be begging me to stop buying them so I can leave some for everyone else. I bought two pairs of these, one for myself and one for my father. These things can save marriages and relationships by the droves. Sounds superb, the software works excellent and is easy to use. They have excellent bass and clarity all mixed into one. I'm telling you they are worth every penny, durable as all get out, and I have been using them nonstop since I got them. I am listening to music through them right now while writing this review." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $220 (available in three colors).

    This is our pick for the best high-end wireless headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    19. An iRobot Roomba E5 vacuum that'll zoom around cleaning for you so you guys can keep watching Schitt's Creek without having to pause to vacuum the house.


    You can control the Roomba right from your phone with the iRobot HOME app, Alexa, or the Google Assistant. It can run for 90 minutes before needing to return to its charging dock, which it does automatically.

    Promising review: "This product is worth every penny. My dog has fine, short hair and sheds horribly. This device worked AMAZINGLY on hardwood floors! The extra suction power for pet hair makes a huge difference. Even on our area rugs, the Roomba does a great job. If you are debating on whether or not to get this device, it makes life a whole lot easier with dusting and sweeping. The battery life is great — we keep ours on the charger while we aren't using it. Setup and controlling the Roomba is very simple. It can be controlled straight from your phone. When the Roomba is done with its job or low on battery, it automatically returns to the charging port while sending you a notification of its movement. Overall, great product! Would recommend this to everyone." —Amelia

    Get it from Amazon for $279.

    20. An inexpensive item finder with four receivers you can stick to your phone, wallet, and keys to ensure you're both never late for brunch because you were tearing apart your couch cushions looking for your latest lost thing.


    Promising review: "I purchased this Key Finder and I liked it so much I got a second one after I gifted mine to my daughter (she always loses her keys and causes lots of problems with her husband). This vendor is the coolest ever and they will stand by their product, so rest assured that if you don't like it (can't imagine why) or if the product stops working this company has your back. This is a simple solution to find things, I have one on my remote, one in my wallet and my keys — three things I'm always looking for." —Blujaykat

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    21. A Drillbrush power scrubber that might just make you excited to clean your bathroom — or at least help you to stop procrastinating it a bit.


    Promising review: "I have NO idea why this product would ever have less than a five-star review. It is a great brush set — I used all three in an effort to get some mildew stains off the grout in my shower. NOTHING worked, but a bit of Soft Scrub (bleach) and these brushes worked like a charm! I then used the larger brush on the floor of the shower, and to remove some soap scum from the glass shower doors. WOW! Where has this been all my life?! Excellent product, works like it should in conjunction with your power drill." —SomeGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 ( available in six styles).

    22. A beard bib to catch all the trimmings you'd usually spew all over the bathroom counter only for your partner to scold you about 10 minutes later when it's their turn to get ready for the day.


    Promising review: "I always got yelled at by my wife for not cleaning the mess after I trim my beard. There is always some left/stuck somewhere which my wife will find. This product saved me from so much of yelling. LOL. The suction cups stick onto the glass effortlessly and they have a firm grip. You need this!" —Farroukh Mohammed

    Get it from Amazon for $9.69.

    23. A dishwasher magnet that'll make it very clear if the machine is clean, dirty, or empty so there's no more confusion about whether or not you need to hand-wash wine glasses before friends come over.


    Promising review: "I love this!!! I had a bad problem with my family stacking dirty dishes up in the sink when the dishwasher was empty...or not emptying it when it was know typical man and kids bad habits. Well since buying this we all have been keeping up on the dishes so much better!!!" —Megan Vead

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95 (available in three styles).

    24. An Amazon Echo Dot to help you make shopping lists, play songs, get the weather, and so much more! Is Alexa your new best friend/assistant? Yep.


    The Echo Dot can set alarms, make shopping lists, play music, dim the lights, tell you about the's a little scary how much it's capable of!

    Promising review: "I have friends and family who have made fun of me for using the Echo Dot around my home. Well, I gave a few as gifts. 'Why would I ever need something like this' turned into love within the first hour! The music, the information, and the whole Alexa experience made her a huge believer. The same thing happened with my sister and my niece. They loved it. Now we also 'drop in' to talk to one another. I'd say it was a huge hit and based on my personal experiences plus their enthusiastic acceptance, I have to give Alexa and the Echo Dot five stars." —Greg C.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in four colors).

    25. A rechargeable clip-on reading light in case you want to stay up late finishing your latest score from the library but your partner has an early alarm and needs to hit the hay.

    It has three brightness levels and comes with a USB charging cord.

    Promising review: "This should be listed as the marriage saver. When one likes to read and one needs darkness to sleep, this is the perfect solution. But additionally, the light shines directly on your page, making it easier to use than a table lamp. The cocoon of light is perfect for drawing you deeper into the world of your book. Highly recommend!" —DevorahK

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. A game of "Toilet Tag" that might actually make you look forward to going to the bathroom to see what fun fact your partner may have revealed in their last visit to the john.


    Promising review: "I’ve only had this game for about a week so my roommate and I have gotten through about 7–8 pages, but flipping through this thing I can tell we are in for a treat. We’ve never laughed so hard while going poo. I used to get on my phone immediately in the bathroom but this game is now the priority. Each page only takes 10–20 seconds to complete so don’t worry you’ll still have time to scroll Instagram but you definitely won’t want to as much because you’ll learn some crazy new things about your roommate. This is a must have if you live with someone." —Tom

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    27. A dual-thickness comforter with a warm side and a cool side for couples who have different body temperatures — now you can both sleep soundly.


    Promising review: "This comforter is a game changer. He’s always cold and I’m always hot...finally a comforter that works for us both! Looks great in our duvet and no one can tell that it has two thicknesses." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99+ (available in two sizes).

    28. A budget planner to help keep you both on track when it comes to your shared expenses, like seeing how much closer you are to being able to book that tropical vacay you've both been dreaming about all winter.


    It even has stickers to help *save* the day!

    Promising review: "I have struggled with budgeting my entire adult life. I have made many resolutions that I was going to keep track of my spending and that I was going to plan for the future, but the resolution has fallen apart for many reasons, not the least of which was not having a way to keep track with which I was comfortable. The CleverFox Budget Planner allows me plenty of space at the front to name my budget goals, and to keep track of my progress. Rather than seeing a budget as a life-time thing, which I think is what makes it hard for me to commit to it on a daily basis, Clever Fox provides me with plenty of motivation to keep going from day to day and beyond." —Lorraine Berry

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 12 colors).

    29. A subscription to Trade Coffee that'll ensure you always have coffee in the house so neither of you wakes up and stumbles into the kitchen only to fall into a blind rage when you realize there is no caffeine to be had.

    tradecoffeeco / Via, tradecoffeeco / Via

    This site will ask you a series of questions, like "how do you usually make your coffee at home?" and "what is your coffee experience level?" and then pair you with a coffee Trade thinks you'd be best suited for. It's like having a barista customize your drink for you all the time! You can choose "The Classics" subscription, in which you'll get one or two 12-ounce bags per order, or "The Hookup," which gets you one pricier 12-ounce bag.

    Get it from Trade Coffee starting at $12.50.

    30. And anti-snoring nose vents to hopefully help you both get some shut-eye instead of feeling like you're sharing the bed with a grumbling, irritated bear.


    Promising review: "I purchased this product for my husband as I am a light sleeper and his snoring tends to prevent me from falling asleep or wakes me up from my sleep. We have tried numerous options and these nose plugs have worked better than any others. He wasn't super stoked about sticking something up his nose for the entire night but he said they fit comfortably which makes him forget they are even there. The snoring has decreased and my sleep has increased which has done wonders for us — no more grumpiness or one of us moving to the couch." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

    May you both *continue* to live happily ever after!
