Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A flexible gooseneck mirror that really lets you get up close and personal with your reflection when your bathroom mirror just doesn't cut it anymore.,

    Promising review: "I couldn't be any happier with this mirror! The length of the gooseneck arm is the perfect length to span the counter from your vanity mirror to your face. The mirror itself is much larger than I expected and the light is super bright but soft enough that it does not hurt your eyes and lets you see every hair that you might want to pluck. The suction device works fantastic. It securely adheres to my vanity mirror. Also, the mirror is attached to the gooseneck with a ball joint so that you can swivel the mirror in all directions. Get this mirror, you won't regret it." β€”Buford's Mommy

    Get it from Amazon for $26.49 (available in two shapes and two magnifications).

    2. A pair of dishwasher-safe pan scrubbers to help you give your skillets a hassle-free clean without using too much elbow grease and without damaging your pans.

    Promising review: "These are the best little scrapers! I've messed up my iron skillets so many times before buying these! It's super easy to use, wasn't pricey, and it does the job! It was even easy on my hands β€” it took me maybe two minutes to scrape everything, rinse, and dry. Save yourself some time and save your pans! Your skillets will thank you!" β€”Tyler

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $2.69.

    3. A set of two silicone mask applicators because they're easy to clean, make mixing ingredients a breeze, and they sure as heck beat applying your face mask with your hands.


    Promising review: "These silicone mask brushes are very nice! They seem sturdy which is great because I apply a mask daily and a clay mask twice a week. Mixing everything with a plastic spoon is wasteful, it never mixes everything together great and can be very sloppy. Applying the mask with my fingers also tends to be a pain. Remember, if you use bentonite clay, it can’t come in contact with metal, so the silicone is perfect for mixing it. The silicone tip is also long enough I don't have to worry about the clay coming into contact with the metal that holds the silicone and handle together" β€”Em🐾

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $3.98.

    4. And a jar of the ever-famous Indian Healing Clay mask because the natural bentonite clay gently deep cleans your pores to improve the overall look of your skin.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. I've had persistent blemishes on the side of my face for the better part of a year. This [pictured above] was after ONE use. Not only did my blemishes improve, but the redness in my face I've dealt with all my life was also better which I was not expecting! I use it with apple cider vinegar, and love this mask!" β€”Nikki

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    5. A handy tracker that'll help make sure you don't accidentally feed your pet more than you're supposed to on any given day.

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" β€”Toni Deegan

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    6. A contact lens carrying case that actually includes a tiny mirror, a solution bottle, tiny tweezers, and a stick connection so you can have all your contact lens accessories at a moment's notice in the event of an emergency.


    Promising review: "These were so cheap and very handy. They were small so they could fit into your purse, pocket, whatever. You could carry them and didn't have to worry about big bottles of solution. I actually ordered one for my purse and one to keep at work." β€”Shaylon

    Get it from Amazon for $4.38 (available in four colors).

    7. A pack of bottle cleaning tablets to clean all the muck from your HydrorFlask so well that you'll rejoice, puke, then rejoice again.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug β€” I tried everything. A bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8 (also available in a 36-pack).

    8. A silicone styling tool holster, because it makes for a convenient place to store your straightener (even while you're using it) without damaging any surfaces.


    The silicone can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees and can attach to any smooth, non-porous surface.

    Promising review: "My wife left the hair straightener on and rushed to work, this plastic magnificent thing probably prevented a fire in our apartment. Even though it was very warm and hot, nothing burned, not even the plastic holder itself. It does what it's supposed to do. It sticks and prevents fires from hair straighteners. Proved after sticking to the sink for over three to four months and not melting with a turned-on hair straightener inside from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m." β€”Emre

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

    9. A pair of anti-chafing Bandelettes to prevent your thighs from rubbing together and causing you what feels like endless amounts of pain.

    Promising review: "These are fantastic! I work overnight and wear dresses regularly to the office, I've been using the deodorant style anti-chafing rubs and wanted a longer-lasting option. Ding-Ding ladies!! This is it! So comfortable I fell asleep in them! No marks, no uncomfortable 'digging in.' They do take some fine-tuning to make sure that they don't roll, but once you find that spot, they don't move! I got the lacy ones and they are sexy and soft to the touch with the silicone on the top and bottom." β€”A. Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in 14 colors).

    10. A bottle stand, because you're sure to get the last bit out of pretty much anything so you can actually go an additional week or two without having to buy more.


    Promising review: "I like getting the last bit of whatever out of my bottles. These hold them upright without having to set them against something and them falling over." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.99 (also available in packs of four and eight).

    11. A set of eyeliner wing stamps that'll expedite your daily eye makeup routine so much so that you might actually start believing in magic.


    Promising review: "This product is amazing. Seriously. Not only does it make PERFECT wings, but I have pretty small eyes that squinch up when I smile, laugh, etc., which is super annoying because my eyeliner is always smudged. These pens though β€” not a sign of smudging at all. Buy it." β€”Tara Doyle Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $13.97.

    12. A 'lil Tubshroom because it traps any hair that tries to wander down the drain before it can cause a clogged up mess.

    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. 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." β€”Lawyer For Justice

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

    13. A pack of hydrocolloid acne pimple patches you can apply on top of breakouts that have already formed a white head of puss and wake up to a gunk-filled patch (and less inflamed zit) by morning.


    Promising review: "These little patches are outstanding. They work just as advertised. This is the first acne product that worked just as I hoped. Put the patch on an annoying blemish at night and in the morning, there will be white gunk on that tiny little patch. Brilliant!! No downside to this product. It does not cause drying or flaking." β€”Robin V.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50.

    14. A critter catcher for when you need to get rid of any creepy, crawly house creatures without hurting them (or if you just don't want to get too close to them).


    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. I definitely struggle with the dilemma of not wanting buggers in my house but also not wanting to kill them. THIS SOLVES IT! It keeps me far enough away from them and grabs them the first time! Super easy to use, and then I get the happy conscious of releasing them outside to go on their happy way." β€”Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in four colors).

    15. A pair of stylish blue light-blocking glasses to help you protect your eyes from the harmful lights emitted by electronic devices.

    Promising review: "Love these!! I tried three different brands before deciding on this one. They definitely block blue light, and they are high-quality, which was not the case with other brands. I can tell my eyes strain less when I wear them and I fall asleep better at night." β€”Dark Star

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

    16. A pack of 10 reusable silicone straws so you can stop paying for plastic straws over and over again.


    Promising review: "These straws are awesome. The silicone is really durable and I love that it’s bendable. This makes it easy to bend into on-the-go bottles, unlike metal where it sticks out. Or just pop it in your bag without worry!" β€”Meg

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $8.95.

    17. A super smart dishwasher magnet that'll help you avoid dunking a dirty bowl in a rack full of clean dishes, or vice versa.


    Just rotate it to switch the "status."

    Promising review: "I don't know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I'm glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can't tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This magnetic sign saves me from washing the 'dirty' dishes another time." β€”Colmac

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    18. A bag raincoat you'll never leave home without on rainy days because it protects your bag from torrential downpours and keeps its contents dry as a bone.


    Promising review: "This is the best thing that ever came out. I own very expensive purses and when it rains, I either use a not-so-expensive purse or nothing at all. Every time I use this, so many people ask me where I got it. What a cool idea." β€”Brenda levi

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    19. A compact cold brew maker that'll save you a boatload of money when you can brew perfect iced coffee at home instead of shelling out $6 a day at a coffee shop.


    Promising review: "I love this. It's the easiest thing in the world to use and it produces smooth, tasty cold brew coffee. You just add 14 tsp. of coffee to the filter, then put the filter into the pitcher, which is filled 3/4 of the way with cold water. Shake it up and put it in the fridge. It suggests 12-24 hours but I've found the coffee tastes the best after 24. I also take it out every so often and shake it up to mix it up a bit. I was so impressed and happy with it that I bought this for a friend and my dad." β€”Julie Padula

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A Revlon Hair Dryer And Volumizer Hot Air Brush because it'll give you a salon-like blowout without the salon-like price tag.


    Promising review: "I love this hair dryer!! I bought it because I broke my shoulder and only have the use of one arm. Before my shoulder was broken, I used a very expensive hairdryer and the best brushes. This hair dryer works better than all of my high-end products. I'll never go back. The brush is big and I was concerned that it would be too much for my short hair. It will work great on any length of hair. The bristles grab even the shortest hair and dry it smooth and soft. My hair is naturally curly and before trying this dryer, I'd dry my hair, straighten it and then use hot rollers. I am now achieving the same results with the Revlon dryer. I haven't written a review on a product in years but needed to share my experience with this dryer. It's worth every penny!" β€”M J

    Get it from Amazon for $35.97+ (available in four colors).

    21. A tube of the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect mascara for a super fanned-out lash look you thought was only achievable in your dreams.

    Promising review: "After using a higher-end mascara for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy...and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" β€”Carrie E Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (also available as a pack of three).

    22. A hair finishing stick that'll help tuck away all those irritating loose hairs and flyaways for a sleeker-looking updo without the need for sticky, crunchy hairsprays and gels.

    Promising review: "I have super fine hair with lots of breakage. No matter how I put my hair up I have bad fly aways. This stuff is great! So easy and it stays better and looks smoother than stiff hair spray." β€”Jill Stillfield

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    23. A couple of condiment containers to protect unsealed ketchup, mustard, spicy mayo, and more when you're on the go and don't want to risk any leaking accidents.


    Promising review: "Finally a reusable, compact, leak-proof container. It'ss shallow enough for dipping and sauces, but still has enough space for a decent amount of condiment. I prefer to use glass containers, but this works much better than any Tupperware-type container and it's lighter than a mason jar." β€”gg

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    24. And a pack of twisty cable protectors that'll prolong the life of your chargers by preventing wire breakage at connecting points.


    Promising review: "I'm not sure what I do, but I'm hard on my charging cables, and I get two to three months' use before they start to split from the cable and the plastic and I have to replace them. I came across these and tried them out. They're awesome. I've been using the same cable for six months now, which is the longest I've used one for. It's still going strong. These are a great little solution that cost a lot less than replacing lightning charging cables." β€”sophiehehe

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $7.99.
