    1. A portable car vacuum that'll help you battle the seemingly endless amount of crumbs that somehow make their way in between your seats despite the fact you rarely eat in your car.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I needed to find a way to clean up the copious amounts of dog hair my furry friend likes to leave behind in the car. Unfortunately, my dust buster really isn't strong enough to take care of my car, and can't bring a full vacuum. This vac did the trick! Long cable, plenty of accessories to make cleaning a breeze, and a handy storage bag so I don't lose all the parts. Small enough to fit in my trunk and be out of the way. Would recommend!" —Mike

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    2. An essential oil diffuser you can attach to the vents in your car to cover up the fact your wet dog is riding in the back seat.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "High quality! I was not expecting such a hearty piece of hardware! Came with plenty of little pads. The clasp has a built in magnet and a slight clip to it so it has a good strong hold closed. Also the clips that attach to the vent are built solid too. Beautiful designs on front. I put a few drops of oil on mine and put it in my car and the whole car is scented! Comes in a cute little package perfect for gifts. Will be buying again for second car and as gifts! 100% recommend!" —Alaina

    4. A spinner ring you can wear to events that usually make you feel a bit jittery or anxious to ensure you'll have a way to refocus and soothe your mind.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    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 $7.99+ (available in sizes 4–11 and seven styles).

    5. A Remington curling wand, perfect for anyone who has been too nervous to try and master this hot tool and doesn't want to commit to a product they're *not sure* they're going to get a lot of use out of. Spoiler: you will!

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    Promising review: "Where has this product been all my life? I have very straight hair and thought it was unable to hold a curl. Usually my hair would lose the curl within an hour or two, leaving a chunky hairsprayed mess. With this product, my hair holds the curl all day and more-or-less the next day as well, and only requires a light misting of flexible hairspray. This is probably because it has several heat settings and most cheap curlers do not heat as hot as this one does. I use the highest setting (400-something degrees), set it with flexible hold hairspray and it works great. I now curl my hair all the time, at least once a week." —Blaire

    Get it from Amazon for $24.92 (available in two sizes).

    6. Attachable camera lenses that'll transform standard phone pics into award-worthy masterpieces. Getty Images will be asking to hire you in no time.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This set comes with a wide angle lens, a fisheye lens, and a macro lens.

    Promising review: "This camera is amazing!!! WOW, you’ll be able to take macro and wide-angle photos that will truly transform your photo albums and impress your friends. The wide-angle lens lets you capture more in a single shot than you normally can, which is great for group selfies. Want to get a high-resolution photo of something small? Attach the macro lens and you can capture all the detail you want from 1.18-1.57 inches away. The lenses screw onto a universal base, so you can add other lenses (like telephoto and fisheye) to your photography toolkit now that you've awoken your inner professional photographer. The quality of the product is well done, lightweight and compact. Great purchase" —Erik H

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. A Tamagotchi you'll be WAY more equipped to take care of now that you're somewhat of an adult...I hope.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $25.

    8. A portable charger with over 6K five-star ratings on Amazon that'll leave you feeling ~charged up~ and ready to shop.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is so damn reliable. I bought it in preparation for an 8 day Hawaii vacation where I'd be out and about the entire day doing tours and activities. It was there when I needed it, especially when I used my phone to take lots and lots of pictures so that drained my battery very quickly. I could even charge my fiancé's phone too!!! Whenever I remembered that this thing had TWO connections I gave myself a pat on the back and made a mental note to write a five-star review for this when I got back from Hawaii. Now this is an essential item in my purse as well and I don't go anywhere without it. Anker is so amazing and they have gained a loyal customer." —Paulina

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99 (available in four colors).

    9. A clip-on selfie ring with three brightness settings that'll let you channel your inner-Kardashian. Flawless lighting at all times? Check.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "OH MY GOODNESS! I am obsessed! I bought these for gifts for two of my teammates but I'm keeping one for myself and ordering more. I was seriously shocked at how bright the lights are! I love that there are three settings. I compared it to my expensive ring light and for the price and the size of this its so perfect! Very happy with this order!" —Nichole Jane

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    10. A fabric shaver to help you revive your favorite sweater just in time for the cooler fall weather. See ya' never, unwanted lint balls.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I honestly never even knew this type of device existed. I am so happy I found this and I don’t have to throw away my favorite sweater/jacket. The shaver worked great and went over zippers, seams, and even the little leather loops on it and didn’t damage a thing. This is probably my favorite amazon purchase ever!" —morningfield

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    11. Or an electric hand warmer that'll keep you feeling nice 'n' toasty even when the weather outside is as cold as your heart.

    Firebox

    Promising review: "Excellent product, useful for keeping my hands warm when typing at work. Heat lasts around two hours and takes around three hours to charge." —Firebox Customer

    Get it from Firebox for $18.99.

    12. A white noise machine, perfect for drowning out the couple that fights constantly in the apartment above yours when all you're looking for is some much-needed shut-eye.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This lil' gadget has over 4.8K five-star reviews on Amazon — that's a lot of well-rested people! It also features six soothing sounds and an optional auto-off timer.

    Promising review: "This sound machine has literally changed my life. The sleep with this machine is like nothing I have ever experienced. Our neighbor likes to spend his mornings shoveling gravel on a cement surface with a metal shovel about 4-5 feet from my window (like 6 a.m. early) and to be honest I was starting to have some pretty dangerous thoughts about stealing his shovel, breaking his arms, burning his house down.... One goes down some pretty dark paths when they suffer from insomnia already and then when they finally fall asleep get woken up with a shovel scrapping down a sidewalk. Okay so the machine somehow COMPLETELY covers the noise from the shovel, the toilet flushing next to my room, dogs barking etc. It is incredible. There are a plethora of choices concerning volume and intensity of sound. Highly recommend." —MorAvFire

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in black or white).

    13. A digital luggage scale that'll prevent you from arriving at the airport only to discover that, surprising to no one, you packed too many shoes are have to pay an extra fee.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a very valuable tool to have for travel, especially if you are checking multiple bags or planning on bringing back stuff from the destination country. I travel to Europe frequently and always have friends and family asking me to bring them back things like chocolate, wine, or souvenirs of some kind. Since the weight limit on a checked bag (before they charge you an exorbitant amount) is 50 lbs, this requires some planning. Being able to precisely distribute your weight between multiple checked bags is invaluable for this. It also takes up negligible space and weighs next to nothing so I usually keep it in my carry on." —Marshall Drane

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    14. A power scrubber — a dream come true for anyone who is tired of ending up red in the face from trying to remove the the grime from their tile or grout.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    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 colors).

    15. A sloth essential oil diffuser to help you ~slow down~ after a chaotic day.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I love this diffuser so much! Not only is it adorable, but it produces a strong mist and spreads the scent of the essential oils throughout the room." —sienap94

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69.

    16. A dog treat camera so you can spoil your little furball no matter where you are.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The Furbo dog camera is actually life-changing. If you're in a long-distance relationship with your pet (like I am) or you're away for a period of time (or even just the day), it can truly hurt your heart to be away from your furry BFF. Thanks to this gadget, people like you and I can still feel connected to our pet! The camera allows you to see and hear your dog, talk to them, and to toss them a treat! It's amazing.

    Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo I was awoken several times in the middle of the night by high-pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my girlfriend not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment I am sure he will be overweight and won't be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks Furbo, your product is awesome and we all love it!" —maria

    Get it from Amazon for $199.

    17. A breakfast sandwich maker for those rainy Sunday mornings where all you want is a cure to your hangover but can't physically venture farther than your kitchen.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "FAM. I need you to lissssssen. I would give this product 87 stars if I could. You'd think it would be one of those gimmicky kitchen appliances that barely even works. EXCEPT you're wrong. It's amazing. It's quick. Look. Lissssten. You put the ingredients in and about two minutes later your tummy is all like 'oh yesssss.' Basically. Just buy it. Purchase the sammich maker. You're welcome." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (also available as a dual sandwich maker).

    18. A personal space heater to help you combat the ever-changing temperatures of your office.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Like a lot of us, I work in an office that is unreasonably sub-arctic. It's a major government building, so the thermostat will never be adjusted. This is small, lightweight, powerful, fairly quiet, and effective at emitting heat in a small space! I have a pretty small cubicle and was worried about freezing at work now that it's summertime, but this space heater has improved my comfort level exponentially." –AzRen

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

    19. 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.

    BuzzFeed

    Do you 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." —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).

    20. Or a LifeStraw personal water filter that'll turn pond, lake, river (or pretty much ANY) water into drinkable water.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is no joke! I took it backpacking on Maine's Bigelow range. When I ran out of the water I brought, I was A-ok with this. On top of one of the lower peaks, I drank from the most disgusting looking crevice filled with brown scum. I thought, this is going to be safe, but taste horrid. WRONG. TASTED LIKE THE FRESHEST SPRING WATER." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.47+ (also available in packs of two or three and two styles).

    21. A motion-activated toilet light, a must for anyone who indulges in scary movies and is then terrified to get up and pee in the middle of the night.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had this device for a little while now and I absolutely love it! Light detector and motion detector work together to only turn the toilet light on when it senses darkness and movement. I love that there are 16 different colors you can choose from; and with each 16 colors you can raise or lower the brightness which kind of makes color choices even bigger if you consider the different color brightness a new color. You can either leave your toilet light cycling through all 16 colors while on, or you have the option of choosing one of the colors and keeping it on that color. I ended up getting two of these toilet lights for both of my bathrooms and my guests, as well as I, love it." —Sergio Rios

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    22. A Nintendo Switch Lite you can keep in your pocket or bag and play your favorite game whenever and wherever.

    nintendo / Via instagram.com

    Lately I've been playing lighthearted games on the Nintendo Switch Lite to distract my mind from Sunday Scaries. Might I suggest picking up something extremely fun but VERY childish like Yoshi's Crafted World? Let yourself get immersed in his adorable yarn land instead of whatever Monday will bring.

    Get it from Amazon for $199.96 (available in four styles).

    Check out our full review of the Nintendo Switch Lite here.

    23. A mug warmer, because even if you're the self-proclaimed "busiest person on the planet" you deserve to have hot coffee.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    We've all been there — 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." —Elle

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    24. An Instant Pot 7-in-1 cooker that'll help you impress your in-laws the next time they come over for dinner and show them you are, in fact, a functioning adult. So, there!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    With a whopping 29.6K five-star reviews on Amazon, you can't really go wrong.

    Promising review: "At first, I wasn't sure about all the fuss surrounding the Instant Pot. When I thought about pressure cookers, I thought of my grandmother standing over a stove, canning vegetables from the garden. Boy, was I wrong! This is hands down my new favorite kitchen appliance, and it has saved me so much time in the kitchen. Let me tell you: The Instant Pot is a total game changer for time-starved cooks, working moms, and anyone who doesn't have time to stand over a stove waiting for a pot to boil." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $59.92+ (available in three, six, and eight quarts and four colors).

    25. Or an electric kettle you can use to whip up a spot of tea faster than Queen Elizabeth II probably demands it from her staff.

    Amazon

    I have had this kettle for about four years and use it almost daily. I've yet to have any issues with it. It has a number of temperature settings that'll let you heat your water to the appropriate temperature for the specific type of tea your drinking. It also has a feature that'll keep water warm, which is great if you have company over!

    Get it from Amazon for $70.99.

    26. A Bluetooth shower speaker, so you can recreate one of the many moments Meryl Streep breaks into song during Mamma Mia while you wash your hair. Here we go agaaaaain!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This speaker is great! It is exactly as described and works wonders. I use this in the bathroom to listen to the news while I am showering, brushing my teeth, and getting ready in the morning. Easy to pair, easy to use and the volume levels are great! Not only that, but it is durable and shock resistant. When using the included suction cup to attach it to my tile wall, I accidentally placed it over some grout causing it to fall when I let go. It bounced in the tub, didn't get a scratch or dent, and powered right up and connected." —Eric P.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    27. A Cricut Explore Air 2 for anyone DIY-obsessed who plans to spend the next few months crafting holiday gifts for all of their family and friends.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This was my Christmas gift, and I am obsessed with it. I’ve already made several projects, mostly working with heat transfer vinyl. It’s really user friendly, and versatile. I love that there is a bunch of accessories, because it’s going to make buying birthday and Christmas gifts easy for my husband from now on!" —Lisa L.

    Get it from Amazon for $227+ (available in eight colors and with our without a basic starter kit).

    28. Dip clips that'll attach to the vents in your car and prevent you from accidentally getting ketchup all over your steering wheel while sneaking a few fries before you get home and have to share them.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Talk about a great gadget for your car. I LOOOVE this thing. I'm one who eats in her car while running errands during the weekends and I must say now I'm planning to get creative with the dipping sauces. Maybe even some homemade ones, since now I can dip on the road. LOL!!!" —Sassy Dimple

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in red or white).

    29. A SinkShroom strainer you won't know how you lived without because it'll keep your kitchen sink unclogged no matter how much gunk you fill it with.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I bought this for myself (since I'm clearly a REAL adult) and OMG. This thing REALLY works. Usually when my husband makes sauce from scratch I'm left with chunks of tomatoes throughout my sink and water that WILL NOT drain — that was until I bought the SinkShroom. My mom was so impressed she bought one, too. It's a serious game changer.

    Promising review: "I’ve been a fan of the Sinkshroom and Tubshroom, and this is the best product from the line so far. My kitchen sinks simply do not clog any more, so there’s no more reaching into a bunch of water to unclog anything with my hand." —Brady Amerson

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    30. Or a TubShroom that just might save your relationship thanks to how well it captures your seemingly endlessly shedding hair.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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. I tried others and they all failed miserably. 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. I strongly recommend it!!!" —Lawyer For Justice

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

    31. A sliding webcam cover for your phone, computer, or tablet so you never have that horrific "OMG" moment when you accidentally open your front-facing camera.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These covers work perfectly on my family's laptops. Easy to install, easy to use, stays in place when toggling the cover back and forth. These are much better than a plastic cover I had on mine previously (that one lasted less than two weeks). Very happy with the quality and the cost of these." —Patsi Hendrickson

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $6.90.

    32. A critter catcher to help safely trap and remove any unwanted creature that wanders into your home. Added bonus? You MIGHT stop screaming bloody murder and running for higher ground when you see a spider.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is awesome! Initially I was hesitant that it would squish the little guys or they would fall out in transport but it's great! Highly recommend! Sorry little guy your GPS brought you into my house, I will help you find your way back outside :)" —Crystal R

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

    33. An Amazon Fire TV Stick, essential for any introvert who prefers to unwind with an episode of Queer Eye after a long day of socializing.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have been getting steady increases in our cable bill with no increase 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 set up 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 being gone. We now save over $100 a month without those charges for cable. If you are thinking of making the leap into cord cutting, this is the way to go." —Stephen H. Jenkins

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great little accessory for your Amazon remote. I was tired of always getting my TV controller out to change the volume or input or turn the TV on or off, but this little addition does it all and attaches right to the fire TV remote." —TDS

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    35. A waterproof portable bluetooth speaker, so you'll never have to waste time untangling headphone wires at the beach or pool again.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "UE Boom 3 is an amazing small bluetooth speaker. For its size, the sound is spectacular and can fill a small room, pool area, or picnic. The speaker is waterproof as well as dust and shock-resistant, and can FLOAT. Honestly, for music, audible books, or podcasts and movies, these sound GREAT! You definitely won't be disappointed with your purchase and will probably end up buying more like I have. They'll fit in your backpack, clip to a bike or almost anything else and will sound great." —Vince V.

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99+ (available in four colors).

    36. A therapy lamp to recreate the feeling of sitting in the sun even when you're stuck in a cubicle all day.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "This light has helped me feel like an actual human again and I could almost cry, honestly. I've only used it a handful of times, but I've already noticed a significant boost in my mood and energy. I enjoy doing chores again, I don't lay in bed when I am off work and cry, I get as excited as my dog when I ask if she wants to go for walks. My friends have noticed an uptick in my mood too, as have my co-workers and family. I've found that I have energy to take up my old hobbies such as writing and drawing again, too." —Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    37. An electric jar opener, because we all deserve to live in a world where we don't need to ask someone else to open our salsa, sauce, or jams.

    Amazon

    My mom has fragile wrists, so my dad gifted this to her for the holidays. She routinely will FaceTime me just to show me how "IT REALLY WORKS!" so, not only will you get an easily-opened jar, but you'll get a few minutes of entertainment as well.

    Promising review: "When your opposable thumbs stop working properly due to arthritis or any other condition, this contraption allows you to open jars without asking for assistance. Manual jar openers work fine, unless you can't use your hands well enough to grip and turn them, in which case this is the answer. It does take a few minutes to figure out and, once you know how to use it, it takes a few moments for it to open jars, but it works well and that is the important thing." —Me

    38. A lightweight Dyson vacuum you can use to clean your whole house without breaking a sweat from lugging around a massive contraption.

    Amazon

    I live and die for this vacuum. It is my absolute favorite Black Friday purchase to date and my husband would say the same. It has a swivel head that perfectly gets into all the hard-to-reach crevices of our apartment. I would buy this gadget again and again and AGAIN.

    Get it from Amazon for $299.

    You can also check out the latest version, the Dyson V11, for a SERIOUS vacuum upgrade.

    39. A wearable nail polish holder that'll prevent you from spilling black lacquer all over your white rug...again.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Cool product! I've seen this before and finally decided I'd try it out. I like it a lot! I found it's great to use when I'm doing my nails on the couch or my bed where I don't have a flat surface to set the bottle. It fits a surprisingly wide variety of bottle sizes and shapes. This is great. It would make a great gift for anyone who loves painting their nails." —Simone Reim

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 18 styles).

    40. A Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush your friends have likely all been raving about for months now because it is a life-changing beauty tool that won't even leave your wallet empty!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This week alone three of my friends have bought this brush and it was all my mom requested for Mother's Day this year. 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 over 7K five-star reviews on Amazon! I'm currently waiting for mine to arrive because, OBVIOUSLY, I had to get one for myself!

    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!

    Promising review: "It is a great game room addition. If you ever spent hours at the arcade as a kid, this is a must-have for some serious nostalgia. The price was great for everything that is included. PERFECT assembly instructions. I'm pretty sure a 10-year-old could figure out how to assemble it. I would definitely also recommend buying the riser, because as-is, this looks to be a perfect height for a 7-year-old... With the riser, it makes it the the same height as a video arcade game." —Jeff in OC
