    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    2. A set of anti-slip shoe pads that'll provide some much needed friction to the bottoms of all your heels.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "These are every bit as amazing as people say. I had a fabulous new pair of shoes that I simply could not wear for fear of busting my butt. I put these babies on the bottom and I'm good to go. Not sure what they are made of, but the surface is incredibly skid resistant, even on a wet surface." β€”HWalkerF

    3. A weighted mug for when your elbow just can't help but collide with a hot beverage container.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I bought this for my accident-prone neighbor for her birthday, and she loves it! Now she doesn't have to worry about spilling her morning coffee or afternoon tea onto her important papers or craft supplies. I've had one of these mugs for a couple of years, and it still works just as well as the day I bought it!" β€”Bethani

    5. A handy nail polish holder to keep the bottle from spilling all over your sheets when you decide to do a touch-up before bed.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "This product is great for polishing your nails without the worry of spilling the polish bottle. It's ideal when the availability of a flat surface to hold your polish isn't available. Tweexy keeps the bottle accessible and makes it very easy to coat the brush from any angle without the fear of spilling. It also helps to provide control as you polish, especially for the 'odd' hand." β€”Sharon J

    Get it from Amazon for $10. Available in nine colors.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I am constantly burning my hands and forearms reaching for things in the oven, and when I saw this product I couldn't order it fast enough! I'm very happy with it, and feeling much safer already!" β€”J. Mitchell

    7. A finger guard that'll protect yourself from chopping off the tips of your fingers with those dull knives you've been using.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I am always chopping my fingernail when doing onions. Love this product. It's fast and protecting. Grandkids will be here over spring break and can't wait for them to try it out." β€”Grandma13

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    8. A highly portable first aid kit for when you just happen to split your head open and need a quick patch while you slowly make your way to the ER.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I got my first aid kit this week and was amazed at how many first aid supplies fit into one small-ish package. All the basic first aid items were covered and some emergency items were included too (emergency blanket, compass, whistle, and more). They also included a mini pouch to create a grab-and-go kit within the kit. I could see this being helpful because there are so many items in the pouch that it may take a second to find the items you need in an actual emergency. Also, it could be helpful for travel or on-the-go uses." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95.

    9. A really informative book to let you know that being clumsy is truly a state of mind.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "This book strengthened my already strong inclinations to avoid preventable injuries and help family and friends do likewise. The style is clear and conversational." β€”Pat

    Get it from Amazon for $14.55. Also available on Kindle.

    10. A cactus sippy cup just in case you feel unable to handle an actual glass in fear of it falling and shattering on the floor.

    anrdoezrs.net

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $10.

    11. A super durable waterproof iPhone 6 case for when you just happen to be around an open body of water and have a case of butter fingers.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I've accidentally put my phone through an entire wash cycle and the LifeProof saved it! Not a drop of water inside! I'm also a klutz and drop my phone at least a couple times a day and it hasn't cracked." β€”Barbs

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+. Available in eight colors.

    12. A pair of heat-resistant gloves that'll prevent your hands from burning whenever you reach in and take a pan out of the oven.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I'm terrified of burning myself on hot pans and the oven β€” which I've done using potholders several times. These are a little big, but I can still use them easily, and the stars help me keep my grip. Also, I freely admit, I think they're stinking adorable." β€”justanotherreviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    13. A simple shirt to let everyone know that when you fall it's on fucking purpose!

    cafepress.com

    Get it from Cafe Press for $19.95. Available in sizes S–2XL, 10 colors.

    14. A couple of no-tie laces, so they won't ever find themselves untied and you won't find your face planting on the concrete sidewalk.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I knew I was going to love these for casual everyday wear, but I never anticipated actually being able to use them in my running shoes. I like my laces tight for running and just didn't think these would be able to stay put. I was wrong! I ran five miles and the laces were just as tight upon completion as they were when I started! I plan on replacing all my laces with these." β€”AA2017

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99. Available in 20 colors.

    15. A bottle of bruise cream to help soothe your arms and legs from the dark marks that plague you from bumping into the corners of furniture.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "This is an amazing product, I'm so happy I found it! I was hit in the head playing softball, and it gave me two beautiful black eyes! The picture on the left is from last Saturday, and the picture on the right is from today!" β€”Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    16. And a useful hairdryer with a retractable cord so you won't slip up and drop it on your feet.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I cannot say enough good things about this hairdryer! I bought my previous hairdryer because it had a long cord, lots of heat, and lots of power. Fast forward two years and I'm sick of tripping over the cord, burning my scalp, and blowing my hair too hard to style on high and hardly moving it on low. So I ordered this dryer with some trepidation...and I love it! The cord is long enough to reach wherever needed and then zips away when I'm done, the heat is perfect and it's plenty powerful enough. Let me just add that when I first turned it on, I was a little worried, I have very long, thick, hair, and the dryer seemed a little short on heat and blowing power. However, by some miraculous process, this dryer actually dries my hair in about half the time my old one did! No more hanging around for hours with my head in a towel." β€”Patricia

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99. Also available in purple.

    You're so cute when you trip like that!
