    1. A collapsible silicone straw with a handy 'lil carrying case keychain that you'll use every morning in lieu of your favorite cafe's paper straws that get soggy and unusable after 20 minutes.,

    Promising review: "I keep one set in the car and another set at the office. They come in handy when you find yourself without a straw. They're easy to clean with the included brush and they are nicely sized silicone straws. I'm thinking about gifting these as stocking stuffers." —myvanitydreams

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in 13 colors).

    2. These shoe deodorizers — you'll keep coming back to them every time a family members' shoes become a liiittle too much to stomach being around.


    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly that my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my prized off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!!!" —Erin

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two colors).

    3. Keyboard cleaning gel (that you can actually use on calculators, remotes, and other surfaces) because let's face it, our laptop keys collect dust and crumbs way more often than we care to admit.


    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first. I was afraid my keyboard would be all gummed up with yellow slime! The opposite happened — it cleaned it as good as new. It got all those dog hairs between the keys and there was no smell lingering on the keyboard or my hands. There was no sign that I had even used it except a clean keyboard. My next task for it will be those dust return air vents on our heating system and my dusty window blinds. This stuff works and I highly recommend!" —Billy

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    4. Anti-blister balm so you can finally wear all of the cute, new shoes you ordered on Black Friday without fear of painful blisters on the backs of your feet.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. I wore heels that always give me blisters for eight hours and I didn't get a single one when using this. It really worked! I plan on getting it again and again. I always have it in my bag at work just in case. I did find it necessary to reapply if I took my shoes off and put them on again." —Dee Ren

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    5. This garlic mincer that you might *think* you won't use until you realize just how often you need minced garlic for your meals.


    Promising review: "This thing changed my life. I've recently crossed the line from noob to domestic goddess. This thing helped. It's easy to figure out and I use it more than I thought I would." —kdr1123

    Get it from Amazon for $3.59.

    6. A set of satin pillowcases because unlike with cotton pillowcases, they'll leave your hair soft and sleek and NOT looking like a rat's nest.


    Satin and silk pillowcases are known to create less friction, which can help reduce hair breakage.

    Promising review: "I couldn't afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is that I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blow-dried the next morning. I'm not exaggerating — my hair looked the exact same in the morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing for my hair, I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors. Warning: Don't get earings, rings or hangnails anywhere near these or they will snag!" —BinaryCode

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in standard, queen, and king sizes and in 15 colors).

    7. The Wet Brush for anyone who spends 30 minutes every morning just untangling their hair with a normal brush. The super flexible bristles are designed to go through tangles and knots without ripping at them.

    Promising review: "This brush is AWESOME! I have super fine hair and a TON of it. This means that every day my hair turns into a rat's nest. The Wet Brush went right through my tangles without pulling. It took me less than a minute to comb my hair even though it usually takes me multiple detangling products and 10-20 minutes of combing. I am in absolute awe of this brush. I’m so glad I ordered two right away. I will be ordering more and never using another brush again!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three color sets).

    8. An air purifier that you'll want to turn on every night if you always find yourself struggling to get to sleep because of lingering dust in the air.,

    Promising review: "This thing is small but works like it’s huge!! I just replaced my filter after one month of use. I have four cats and hardwood floors so my allergies were crazy. Within a few weeks, I noticed much less cat hair and that I was breathing much better." —Johanna Kelly Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in black and white).

    9. This cordless vacuum cleaner because every pet parent/tiny human parent/person who lives and breathes will appreciate clean floors and carpets.


    Promising review: "So, I wrote this review to put all the bad ones to shame. This is the best vacuum I have ever used. If you are contemplating getting this vacuum, I highly recommend it. I’ll never go back to anything else. It’s built well and has great suction. It picked up a lot of hair from my two dogs — mind you, I had my carpet professionally cleaned two days prior. Now I’m questioning if they even did a really good job. The vacuumed picked up a lot from my carpet, and I only vacuumed for a couple of minutes." —Chelsee Brooks

    Get it from Amazon for $244.10.

    10. A pet hair roller that you'll keep using to pick up balls of loose hair as long as your furry friend keeps shedding.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-lb. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    11. And this screen roller because try as you might, you won't be able to keep oil and fingerprints off your phone screen 110% of the time, so this is the next best thing.


    Promising review: "This little device removes the oil from your screen. Often, when you are 'cleaning' your screen by wiping it with a cloth, you are simply pushing around the oil into a thin enough layer to see through without noticing it as much. This device actually lifts the oil and removes it. My screen feels like new, which is great because I am picky about my devices. Also, this is much better than cleaning the screen with some kind of wipe since repeated cleaning with most wipes will damage the screen over time. Clean it as often as you want/need and you can continue to enjoy that pristine screen without fear of wearing the oleophobic layer off prematurely. I would highly recommend this to others." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    12. A seat cushion to finally make you not hate sitting in your uncomfy office desk chair eight hours a day. Reviewers say it has even helped alleviate some back pain.

    Promising review: "The chair I use has the worst cushion and support for my back. I spend many hours a day in this chair and my butt bone was really getting sore before I bought this cushion. Since I have been using this cushion, my butt feels supported, comfy, and I have no more pain. My back also feels more aligned and my posture has benefited tremendously! I highly recommend this product to anyone who simply wants a better seat. The cushion is decently portable and has a handle on the side that helps to transport if needed." —Ben B

    Get it from Amazon for $21.63 (also available: the pictured lumbar cushion for $24.95).

    13. A pair of super cute lace thigh Bandlettes — you'll reach for every time you wear a skirt or dress because it helps minimize the dreaded thigh chafing.

    Reviewers recommend measuring your thighs before selecting a size for the best fit.

    Promising review: "Ladies, we can finally toss the deodorant...these things work! I was hella skeptical because my thunder thighs are crazy resistant to any sort of chub rub defense. So I ordered these Bandelettes. I wore them while walking at least five hours at a music festival and they stayed put without me ever needing to adjust them! I couldn't believe it! My delicate inner thigh skin was preserved, not a chub-rub in sight, and they're so feminine and romantic looking that I didn't even care if someone caught a peek at that beautiful lace. These are way sexier than my usual biker shorts. I love that I can wear dresses all day now without worrying about my thunders overheating." —OceanHips

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in sizes A–F and in 14 colors).

    14. A compact clothing steamer that may be small but will leave you with a huge smile on your face when it smooths out the creases and wrinkles in your favorite work shirts.

    Promising review: "I love this steamer!!! I don’t like iron and I have no room for an ironing board. My husband’s work clothes always get so wrinkled and it doesn’t look good. I used this steamer on one of my shirts for the first time today. It heated up within two minutes. The power cord is super long as well, which is awesome. It’s convenient and perfect for travel, or if you have no room for a bulky ironing board, like me. If you are considering buying this steamer, I say GO FOR IT!!!" —Angelika Long

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    Maitland, an editor here at BuzzFeed, tried this mini steamer for herself and her review is preeetty convincing.

    15. This stainless steel tongue scraper so you can get rid of bad breath-causing germs without triggering your gag reflex like you would with a toothbrush.

    Promising review: "Unfortunately, I like many suffer from bad breath and have tried so many things. I read that sometimes it's the germs on your tongue that can cause it, so I went crazy trying to brush my tongue. Of course, we all know how that ends — gagging, watery eyes, and it still looks like that gross film is on your tongue. This product is really easy to use and I can get very far back on my tongue without activating my gag reflex. Also, it doesn't have the feeling like brushing with a toothbrush does. This cleaner just glides across my tongue, taking all the icky germs and bad breath with it. I really like this product and I love that it came with a travel case. But I also love my nice, new fresh breath and boosted confidence!" —jordanlauren

    Get it from Amazon for $6.14+ (available in packs of one, two, three, and six).

    16. A rapid egg cooker that'll help you get such perfectly cooked yolks and whites that you'll never ruin breakfast again. It's so simple that you can literally just press a button, go get ready for work, and come back to yummy eggs.

    The egg cooker makes omelets, scrambled eggs, and poached eggs, and the non-electric parts are dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "What a wonderful little gadget! The eggs came out perfectly and peeled so much easier than they do when boiling them. I’m more of a 'set it and forget it' type of person than a 'watch the pot boil and set a timer' kind of person. They cooked for 10 minutes and were wonderful. Stop debating and get it!" —Megan C.

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

    17. This dough blender because you might actually start baking more when you create the flakiest pastries and biscuits you've ever eaten.


    The key to successful flakiness is quickly and evenly distributing the cold butter throughout without warming it up with your fingers. This keeps your hands out of the bowl, so that butter stays chilled.

    Promising review: "I made the best pie crust of my life yesterday using this dough blender and Mrs. Anderson's Baking Non-Stick Pastry Cloth Frame to roll out the dough. I cannot say enough about this dough cutter. It fit my hand beautifully and worked easily to blend the frozen butter and flour. I will never use my food processor again to make pie dough. This blender is all I need." —Anne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    18. A super accurate kitchen thermometer with over 8,000 five-star reviews so you can finally stop overcooking your meals "just in case" they aren't done enough.


    Promising review: "I've used this on pork roasts, a turkey, a couple of baked chickens, and candy. Comparing the temps on this device with those from an older, differently branded thermometer, they are nearly identical. I'd say it's as accurate as any other similar price range thermometer and a bit better than my old, more expensive one. Easy to clean, small for storage, and a hook for hanging make it a great kitchen tool. I would definitely buy it again and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a food thermometer." —monkeysohana

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    BTW if your recipe doesn't specify, here's a full list of internal cooking temperatures for different kinds of foods!

    19. Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Peppermint Pure-Castile Soap, which you can use for anything from laundry to dishes to facial care. In fact, it's so useful that you just might want to stock up.

    Because the soap is actually super concentrated, Dr. Bronner's recommends diluting it using their handy dilutions cheat sheet.

    Promising review: "I use this for my acne and GIRLLL, this changed my life. if you have persistent acne like I had, then I suggest you give this sucker a try and follow up with the Thayer's Witch Hazel Toner with Aloe Vera and trust me, you will see results like you've never seen before, honey! I know this soap is good for a lot of other stuff too, but my face is selfish and wants to hog it all I guess. I LOVE IT!" —christine

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $19.79+.

    20. A morning journal that just takes two minutes of your time but can do a tremendous job of helping you start the day with a clear mind.


    Promising review: "This was purchased for me as a Christmas gift from a co-worker. I don't know what it is, but even if I repeat some of the same stuff, getting this done in the mornings has made such a tremendous difference in my attitude toward myself and toward others. So much so, that several people have noticed. I have since purchased a couple of copies for friends who are also dealing with troubles in their lives. I highly recommend it. Even if you aren't dealing with any issues in life, it's such a help for clearing your head before starting your day." —Sumo

    Get it from Amazon for $15.26.

    21. This set of packing cubes because reviewers say they have actually helped them save valuable suitcase space. You'll no longer dread every trip you have to pack for.

    Promising review: "I am officially sold on packing cubes!! These things are amazing! I can believe I've been packing without them my whole life. I packed my clothes, shoes, and toiletry bag for a 10-day trip to Europe (full contents listed below). I packed them as I normally would first, and then packed them in the packing cubes. There was so much more room after packing in the cubes!" —Tiffany

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $22.99 (available in nine colors).

    22. A jewelry cleaning stick to make all your gems look brand new without forcing you to burn a hole in your wallet to have them professionally cleaned.

    Promising review: "This little pen brush is incredible! I wasn't sure if it would work well on my emerald engagement ring since it's mostly advertised for diamonds, but I thought I'd give it a try. I have been wearing the ring since getting engaged in October, and even though I had it cleaned at the jeweler's in April, it just didn't seem as bright as it was when it was new and I thought it would just always be a little cloudy. But after cleaning it once with the Dazzle Stik I was blown away by the difference — it looks as bright and sparkly as when I first got it! I'm so glad I didn't buy an ultrasonic cleaner since this is so much less expensive and easier and gentler — it took me less than a minute to clean and I can do it whenever I want! And it's honestly better than when the jeweler cleaned it. So thrilled!" —KFray

    Get it from Amazon for $4.49.

    23. Magnetic eyeglass holders that attach to your shirt and make sure you always have a safe place to keep your glasses.


    Promising review: "Not only is this item pretty on a shirt, blouse, or jacket but it also has very strong magnets that hold it in place no matter what. It is so easy to 'park' my glasses for safekeeping and the glasses are secure and will not let them slip even if you bend over. This is such a quality item and after the first one, I went back and bought several more — some to keep around the house and some to give as gifts." —Judi Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two finishes).

    24. This compact $20 cold brew maker — you'll never want to part it with because it's waaaay better than spending $6 a day to get your iced coffee fix.


    Promising review: "Just like everyone else, I wanted the cost savings and convenience of iced coffee at home. Mine sat a little over 14 hours and it was perfect! I didn't have coarse ground coffee in the house so I used my regular Folgers med/dark and it was perfect! I was worried the grinds would seep into the pitcher through the filter net but surprisingly it didn't! I removed the filter part and it was super easy to clean. I added ice, a little bit more water to the concentrate and then some flavored creamer! And wow! Perfect for summer days! Looking forward to using this with my protein smoothies to make vanilla latte shakes." —LLA

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two sizes).

    25. And a carpet cleaning spray that you'll always keep on hand for those pesky spills and stains since replacing carpets can be kinda, you know, expensive.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! My husband and I bought our house about a year and a half ago and it came with this ugly stain on the carpet that had been hidden under a rug during the walkthrough. I could not get it out with anything. We also have two dogs, so the occasional mess happens and this stuff gets out literally everything! It got out that old stain in literally less than 60 seconds. I was so blown away that after I cleaned every last little stain I could find, I bought two more bottles to gift to our family. If you have kids or pets or are a klutz, buy this now!" —Kallie Wise

    Get it from Amazon for $11.18+ (available in packs of up to five).
