    With things like quick fixes for crinkled shirts... I didn't think it was possible, but I'm already jealous of my future self.

    1. Miracle-Gro food spikes if you think there's room for improvement in the plant parenting department. Just pop this fertilizer in the soil so you and your potted child can flourish to live a long, leafy green life together.

    2. An Onset eyebrow soap kit that will set brow hairs in place and up for success! Your over-tweezed brows from your teens are *so* jealous of your present brows since this stuff tames and fluffs all at the same time.

    3. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to remove grime and funky odors that unavoidably build up over time in your trusty water bottle. These miracle workers are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and don't require a finger to be lifted as you just let 'em sit overnight and they do all the work for you.

    4. The Pink Stuff all-purpose paste (as seen on TikTok) that'll magically clean practically anything and everything in your home. This potion in a paste reverses wall scuffs, cooked-on grease, soap scum, and whatever else that could use a little abracadabra alakazam.

    5. A fun and colorful visual grocery list for tracking, planning, and making the weekly supermarket trip less of an arduous task. No more creating lists in your Notes app when you can just stick this on the fridge, circle the things you're out of as you go, and bring it with you to the store.

    6. A hard-boiled egg timer you'll wonder how you lived without once you put it to use. This lil' guy changes color to indicate how your eggs are cookin', so you can ditch the "how long should I.." Googling you do every time you decide to boil an egg.

    7. Cute and customizable spice labels if minimalist packaging in sans serif fonts has you heart-eyed. This is an affordable and aesthetically pleasing way to clean up that disorganized, overrun spice drawer *and* with these on display, you'll finally be able to distinguish the parsley from the oregano.

    Three jars of spices with the labels parsley, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper

    8. A teeth-whitening pen because we foresee a pearly-white smile in your future — one that's a *lot* easier to attain than you'd think. Goodbye, slippery whitening strips that slide all over your mouth. Hello, easy-to-use pen that lightens teeth by four to eight shades!

    Reviewer before and after showing the pen noticeably whitened their yellow teeth

    9. A jar of E.l.f. Cosmetics Acne Fighting Putty Primer that defeats breakouts while keeping your all-day look in place. How? Acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid and zinc, of course. This velvety formula sweeps over pimples and smoothes uneven complexions — just apply pre-foundation or concealer, let it sit for 30 secs, and voila! You've got a fresh canvas.

    10. A set of bedsheet holders — the (swoon-worthy) solution you've been looking for to hold crumpled sheets in place. And if your covers happen to have lost a couple of inches in the dryer, these'll make sure they don't creep around when you're trying to find your comfy, still spot.

    11. A wrinkle releaser and fabric freshening spray for when you have last-minute plans and your favorite shirt is covered in unsightly crinkles. This stuff zaps away creases in a pinch so you don't have to even think about the fact that you're in your late twenties but still don't own an iron...

    12. A bug bite suction tool if the only thing that gets you down around this time of year are nasty 'quitos. In fact, I just had lunch outside only to find one nibbling my ankle so yeah you bet I'm gonna arm myself with this sucker that drains out the irritant and stops swelling and itching in. its. tracks.

    13. A wall-mounted toothbrush holder and dispenser, aka the bathroom counterspace savior seen on TikTok. Big kids are going wild over this nifty thing that dispenses toothpaste and clears up clutter.

    14. A tiny (and adorable!) cactus humidifier designed to turn stale air into a refreshingly hydrating mist that'll help you on your way to your 5 p.m. deadline. Plus it connects via USB, so you can keep it close by to clear up sinuses.

    15. Sweatblock antiperspirant wipes for anyone who finds themself d-r-i-p-p-i-n-g in salty fluids day after day (even if it's cool outside!). Just peep this before and after, the after could be you... in the future... bone dry. AKA, run don't walk for these godsends.

    16. A simply remarkable dry erase door hanger to stop any intruders (read: hungry kids and S.O.s) in their tracks. With this handy hook, you can let others know that *now* is not the time to barge in and interrupt your workflow.

    Hanger that says "shhh, i am ..." with options for being on a call, working, reading, napping, with a blank to say until what time and other instructions

    17. A two-in-one keyboard and screen cleaner if you, like me, need a tip-top clean space free of grubby fingermarks and cracker crumbs in order to get any work done.

    18. A set of cooling towels invented to chill your skin with their soft microfiber, hyper-evaporative, absorbent fabric. Basically you can dab yourself with this anytime you feel the onset of the sweats, or wear it while working out.

    19. A pair of quick-dry water shoes you'll be patting yourself on the back for packing on your next trip. These babies are flexible, protect your hooves from rocks and hot sand, *and* feel just like waterproof socks so you may even forget that you slipped 'em on. Some reviewers even wear them as house shoes or to just run out in their backyard in.

    20. Satin pillowcases that'll come in handy now that humidity is on the rise. These will shape up to be a divine (but affordable) accompaniment to your bedroom decor, while the matte satin finish will keep your hair tangle- and frizz-free.

    21. An air fryer from the food pro's that brought you the Instant Pot. Because if you're looking for a kitchen helper that'll save you money in the long run, this futuristic-looking device might just be it — whip up anything from fried chicken to crispy potatoes in record time (and with less greasy mess).

    22. A lazy-person approved MakeUp Eraser cloth to put an end to the slew of nights going to bed with a full face of makeup. Seriously, it couldn't be simpler to swipe off foundation and lippy — all you need is this magic wipe and *water*. Ding ding, bonus here! You'll even notice a reduction in the amount of breakouts you get once you remove your all-day look.

    23. A stackable cutlery organizer that will *cue hallelujah music* tidy up your once nightmarish kitchen drawers and finally arrange silverware so you can open and close them with ease. Goodbye to the days of hodgepodge drawerfuls jammed with extra knives your S.O. insisted would fit!

    24. An Our Place always pan because Instagram's favorite kitchen mate is ::chef's kiss:: for cooking pros and newbs alike. This beauty replaces the need for eight (yes, eight!) cookware items, so you'll be reaching for this anytime you want to fry, steam, boil, and even serve up your signature dish.

    25. A pancake mixer bottle blessed by the breakfast fairies who want you and the whole fam to enjoy a fat stack of fluffy pancakes and waffles. This handy thing mixes and pours out batter without the headache of a huge cleanup.

    26. A microfiber laundry ball that collects fuzz and microfibers from your clothes, think: synthetics like fleece and swimwear. This was cleverly inspired by the way coral filters out the ocean, so by using this in the wash you'll be keeping pollution out of waterways. Less shedding = happier oceans.

    27. A nugget ice maker – its affectionate name suggests that it makes perfectly-sized cubes for bevs and coolers — so you don't have to go to the store to buy a big buttload of ice when you're hosting or attending a picnic. It's also small and quiet so you don't have to worry about it hoarding counter space.

    28. Heavy-duty, eco-friendly, reusable bamboo towels, because buying and re-buying packs of Bounty can get $$$ — and this is a no-brainer since one roll equals six month's worth of regular paper ones. Oh, and did I mention that these wonders are...machine-washable!?!

    29. A Philips sunrise-mimicking light and alarm clock for anyone who could use some help resetting their circadian rhythm (aka sleep-wake cycle). This soothing clock won't bolt you up like regular ol' alarms but instead, this'll wake you up gradually *and* it works in reverse with a sunset feature, too. Future you is looking well-rested!

    30. A six-outlet wall charger designed to keep you and your roomies from fighting over juice. Equipped with a nightlight and two USB ports, you can get all your devices up to 100 — even if everyone in the house happens to be pulling an all-nighter.

    31. A mattress vacuum cleaner because you'd be surprised (and potentially grossed out) at what else you'll find has been sleeping in your bed with you. It's your destiny to have a clean and healthy mattress — so capture those allergy-causing dust mites!

    32. An innovative Rocketbook Everlast smart notebook, aka the reusable, eco-friendly solve that alleviates the need to carry around multiple writing pads. This'll save you from throwing around papers trying to track down the notes you took two weeks ago, since you can scan them to your device as soon as you're done writing and clear the page to start again.

    33. An unbelievably adorable display stand to keep your glasses safe, so you can focus on double checking your emails for typos instead of spending hours that turn into days trying to relocate your specs.

    34. A four-pack of easy-to-clean coffee filters for Keurigs so you can get your morning caffeine fix in a more environmentally-friendly way. These puppies are reusable, refillable, and the best part? You can enjoy your *own* favorite roasts that might not be available in K-Cups.

    35. A Wi-Fi extender will strengthen your connection if you happen to be stuck in an internet dead zone in your home. This will boost your service, so you can watch YouTube tutorials all the way through without fear of them freezing.

    36. A double-sided pet hair remover brush to stop the shed everywhere from your couch, carpets, beds, and worst of all... your black leggings! OMG and! You don't need to remove the fuzz from these by hand, because it comes with a self-cleaning base that you just dip the brush in and *poof* it's ready to use again.

    37. A simple-yet-magnificent lid organizer with adjustable dividers so you can *cheers to the sky* finally retrieve missing lids that were previously just chucked in your cupboard by your lovely, but idle roommate.

    38. Drawer organizers if you've ever gone on a treasure hunt for that one nude thong so you can wear your white jeans. Now it's finally a thing of the past, thanks to dividers that take care of your mess of bras, socks, and underwear alike.

    39. A pet water bottle, the compact way to make sure your doggo stays happy and hydrated on your springtime strolls. Just throw this leakproof device, which has a feeder and dispenser for them to drink from, in your bag so that you're prepared for that next hike!

    40. Shoe stackers if you're known for having a collection that could fit an entire store. These slots have an adjustable height so you can layer your mules, sneakers, and heels on the nonslip grooves. Now you've cleared that up, is it time for a new pair?

    41. A set of 50 wood fillers designed to touch up pet scratches and shoe scuffs that have gone untreated. This will reveal wood finishes that look brand spankin' new in no time.

    42. A HyperChiller beverage cooler if, for you, iced coffee is *life*. This turns hot java into a frosty glass of joe in 60 seconds flat — with the added benefit of potentially transforming you into a morning person, because now you'll actually look forward to waking up and grabbing this outta the fridge.

    43. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing roller stick made with volcanic stone to tackle 4 p.m. T-zone shine. Simply put, you can give your skin a quick roll with this once your face becomes more reflective than the screen you've been staring at all day. A bonus? No white cast leftover from setting powder and no extra makeup tools needed.

    44. A grout pen if your tiles have become so unsightly you've forgotten what color the lines are that's separating them. (Spoiler: they're white!) This solution revitalizes floors in your bathroom, backsplashes in the kitchen, or literally wherever tiles live in your home.

    45. A food slicing board with a stainless-steel blade that cuts the perfect and most satisfying slice each time. Veggies, cheese, meats, whatever you need to up your charcuterie game. (Because future you is a fancier you.)

    46. A mini bag sealer that heat seals your pack of morning cereal and afternoon pita chips for maximum freshness (and keeps any bugs out from finishing up your snacks before you do!). This handy thing also has a cutter to reopen said seals and a magnet that'll look great on your fridge, so you never misplace it.

    47. A 24-oz Bindle water bottle complete with a roomy compartment to store your most-needed items. And this clever thing also features a vacuum seal to keep cold bevs cold and hot ones hot for up to 12 hours.

    48. A stylish travel belt to secure your belongings in place. No more slippin' and slidin' when you just want an easy (and now totally chic) way to transport your totes and book bags around.
