5. An LED lantern than can transform into a focused flashlight when you need a narrow beam.

"It's an add-on item, and holy fancy, is it awesome! I bought four of these for camping and was not disappointed. It's SUPER bright, has a flashlight and lantern capability, and the strap is adjustable. Runs on three AA batteries (just grabbed some from the dollar store), and is little bit bigger than a standard 12 oz. beer can. It feels super cheap because it's all plastic, but it's seriously amazing." —mlntrdxnGet it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in a two-pack).

6. This odor eliminator for soaking up even the most stubborn dog smells.

"It's made with bamboo charcoal, and absorbs odors like a charm! I keep one above my dog's crate, which tends to take on a nice wet/corn chip/stale smell, even after only a few days of fresh bedding, which infiltrates the entire room. It also helps with dehumidifying, which is a nice bonus. After this sitting in there for one night, the dog smell was gone! The thing that really sold me on this is that they last for two years, and if you notice the smells returning, you just take the bag outside and let it sit in direct sunlight to 'rejuvenate' the charcoal. I've had it in there for two months, and it's like there is no dog crate. So worth it!" —artistthateatsGet it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in three colors).

7. A multifunctional pen that does double duty as a stylus.

amazon.com

"The Zebra stylus pen is my favorite purchase as of late, excluding the 15 fidget spinners I ordered for 'my niece.' The actual pen writes smooth and has a very fine point for when you need to fill out small areas on forms and such. The stylus saves you from gunking up your tablet or phone screen." —SnOwRiDe1080

Get it from Amazon for $8.98 (available in a six-pack).

8. A foot cream to rejuvenate your cracked skin (down to the roots).

amazon.com

"This stuff is amazing! My feet take a beating in the summer when I'm doing more stuff outdoors, and I've tried so many different foot creams, but none of them even come close to this! This stuff feels like it soaks down to the roots without making your feet feel like a greasy mess, and it's unscented, which is great if you're like me and don't like the strong fragrances found in most foot creams. The first time I used it, I noticed an instant difference, and my husband appreciated my softer feet so much that he started using it, as well!" —18milesnh

Get it from Amazon $7.74+ (available in packs of 1–12).

9. This ring adjuster that'll get those loose rings to fit juuuuusst right.

"Ring sizers! I'm a size 5.5, so trying to find rings that actually fit me is a huge challenge. I've tried other sizers, and these are the best by far. They don't fall off, get water/soap caught in them, and so comfortable you don't even notice it's there!" —kendral464ad75b4Get a four-pack for $7.99.

10. A 10-foot charging cable for your phone, so you don't have to huddle near the power socket.

"10-foot long iPhone cable. It will change your life, trust me." —skylare408bf0a07Get a micro USB version from Amazon for $7.47.While you can get a cable for under $10, I would recommend spending a few bucks more to get this one for $11.99. Also this is another moment to shill my philosophy of 10-foot long phone cables! You can read up on why I love them so much here.

11. A pack of coffee candies with a spot-on cappuccino flavor.

"Kopiko Cappuccino hard candies. They're about $2 for a bag of around 30, and they pack the punch of an actual cappuccino. Perfect for when you need to stay up or need some extra energy but can't or don't want to make any coffee." —ninethm956Get a two-pack from Amazon for $5.75.

"My mug warmer has single-handedly made groggy mornings in the office feel like I'm transported to a little cafe in the countryside.

14. These elastic laces to turn your favorite pair of kicks into slip-ons.

"I have these on all of the sneakers I own and have bought my boyfriend a few pairs. These have lasted multiple marathons, half marathons, and faster 5Ks (some even in the rain). They don't loosen or come undone. I love that I could get my shoes tight enough but because they are elastic, there is still a nice flex. Plus, they are great for getting through airport security." —kaddoms50Get a pair from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 41 colors).

15. This fruit fly trap that spells death for the peeving pests.

"This is a little gross — but fruit flies annoy the SHIT out of me. I can't stand when I see the stupid little things zip around the kitchen. They're impossible to kill and I just hate them. I bought this on Amazon and I couldn't believe how well it worked. The morning after I put it out on my counter there were so many dead fruit flies floating in it. It was so weirdly satisfying and I am so happy that I made this purchase!! Worth every penny. Also — no more fruit flies!" —emilykisloskiGet it from Amazon for $8.49.

Sara / Amazon / Via amzn.to, JohnnyV / Via amzn.to

"The Wet Brush! As someone with super thick hair who has always struggled with snarls and knots, this brush is a gift from the heavens. I am so glad my hairstylist recommended it because I can get that brush through my wet hair like a hot knife through butter without one single snarl. If you've got a little kid with hair that is hard to tame, this brush will save many tearful moments from occurring." —manningl428

17. And a whole god damn pound of bobby pins so you'll never worry about leaving them around.

"A pound of bobby pins. If you use them, you know just how easy it is to lose them. I'm sure when I'm long dead, they're still going to find my bobby pins in the cracks and crevices of my house. And it's not like this is a certain count, IT'S AN ENTIRE POUND! And for $4. It's easily the best thing I've ever purchased on Amazon for under $10." —kimberlyt441079d6bGet a pound from Amazon for $4.27.
