    Fenty Beauty

    Promising review: "I’m very excited to say I truly love my two lip glosses. When I glide the lip gloss across my lips, I feel very pretty. The colors I chose are very beautiful. There’s a sweet, soft fragrance that catches your attention. Even though I’m working from home and no one will see how beautiful my lips are I’m OK because I’m sitting pretty with pretty lips." —Honey

    Jennifer Tonti / BuzzFeed

    OK so I just bought this for my own tiny apartment (pictured above) and OMG you guys. Life = changed. Food = chopped. Counter space = doubled. I mean the math is all there.

    Promising review: "This is so perfect for extra space. It covers the top of my apartment-sized stove so I can then use my stove space for my Instant Pot and food prep. The best space-saving and cosmetic thing I have ever gotten for this tiny apartment." —Talyn Amber Skye

    Get it from Amazon for $24.75+ (available in seven styles and sizes).

    4. A coffee pod storage drawer with room for 40 Nespresso Vertuo capsules to sit nice and neatly under your machine or right beside it. This clean sleek storage is the perfect solution to tons of pods all dumped into that one drawer in your kitchen. Now you can find your favorite flavor!

    Promising review: "Loved this to organize the Nespresso pods in our condo! Sturdy enough to support our large coffee machine and plenty of capacity. Looks really sleek and our guests love it!" —ExFlyboyDoc

    Get it from Amazon for $26.94+ (also available with a glass top).

    5. A wall organizer for your new home office. Spend hours trying to find important documents? Put them all in one place where they won't get lost!

    the wall hanger showing the folders in colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple

    Promising review: "This is a great product. It allowed me to declutter my massive paperwork at home. I also allocated two slots for my kids to insert their forms that require my signature, in turn helping me to teach them how to clean their place tidy and how to properly manage/file documents." —Xinsen

    Get it from Amazon for $9.35 (also available in gray).

    6. A squalane lip balm from Biossance that's made with ceramides and hyaluronic acid to replenish, hydrate, and soften your lips.


    Promising review: "I have very dry, dull lips. I use a scrub almost daily. This balm has lessened my need to scrub my lips and it has the tiniest bit of shine and tons of moisture. I love it." —Amanda T.

    Get it from Biossance for $18.

    7. A Fenty blotting powder to protect your beautiful makeup from a humid day.

    Fenty Beauty

    Promising review: "This is the only full pressed powder product of any type that I have ever finished. On my lightest makeup days and heaviest this product is a requirement. It makes me matte and keeps my makeup staying longer. I use a lot of it every day and it took me two years to completely empty the pan. This product is original, creative, and I have yet to see another brand offer anything similar." —KKH2

    Get it from Fenty for $32.

    8. An AeroGarden for your countertop, because some of us do NOT have a green thumb but still love to cook with fresh herbs. A greenhouse for your kitchen? The future is now and look how yummy it is!

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend's sister-in-law who lamented not having a green thumb. In the two months that the sis-in-law has had the AeroGarden, the growth has been tremendous. I'm constantly in awe when she sends me pics of the new growth." —Mary A. Walls

    Get it from Amazon for $111.03+ (available in three colors).

    9. A magnetic paper towel holder so you can clear space on your kitchen counter and use the empty space on your magnetic fridge.


    Promising review: "I love this. It’s perfect for my small kitchen. I hate having stuff on the counters since my kitchen is so small. I used it vertically instead of horizontally. Works perfectly and it is sturdy." —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $15.59.

    10. A pack of four shower curtain adhesive clips that'll act as a splash guard every time you shower so you can be glad you won't step out onto a soaking wet bathroom floor every day.

    a step by step photo series showing how to clip your shower curtain onto the clip

    It'll also prevent your bathmat and the area around your shower from getting moldy and mildewy by keeping the water where it belongs.

    Promising review: "I purchased a couple of gadgets here on Amazon that claim to minimize or eliminate shower water seepage and have easy installs. These clips are the best gadget I purchased, and I plan to buy more to hold down the base of my shower curtain. I have them on both the outside and inside of the shower. They are installed on the left side of the shower, the side that we do not use to enter the shower. That way they just stay in place." —Kimber

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in a pack of four and eight).

    11. A Billie razor so you can say goodbye to that rusty thing currently sitting on your shower shelf and say HELLO to this sleek, modern, and ~smooth~ new razor.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed, Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    My coworker Bek O'Connell loves her Billie razors. Here's what she had to say:

    "Billie is just the most wonderful company, and every time I take a shower, I wonder if I should write them fan mail. First of all, everything they design is ADORABLE, so even if their razors were dull or flimsy, I'd still be a loyal fan. But luckily, their razors are as sharp as they are sharp looking. The handle is super lightweight and easy to grip. The razor heads are surrounded in a layer of soap, so they glide beautifully over skin without irritating it. Billie makes great razors, and it's awesome that they're so affordable. If only they could go back in time and stop me from paying absurd amounts of money on pharmacy brand razors in my youth."

    Get the starter kit from Billie for $9 (and then four replacement cartridges for $9 when you need them).

    Read more about why BuzzFeed editors and writers are OBSESSED with Billie razors.

    12. An insulated 2-in-1 water bottle that'll offer more than meets the eye. It's both versatile and sustainable with its detachable travel cup. Say goodbye to waste and hello to a good cup of coffee!

    @camelbak / Via, @camelbak / Via

    The stainless steel bottle holds 22 ounces and the cup holds 16 ounces.

    Promising review: "Love always having a water bottle and the option to use the lower for hot beverages on the go. Keeps my water cool and my coffee hot. I have two and use them every single day whether I'm headed to the range, camping, or just random errands. Thank you for such a great product! Will make great Christmas gifts too." —AkDelia

    Get it from Camelbak for $50 (available in four colors).

    13. A personal password book because, like me, you keep adding a number to the end of your passwords and you've lost count and also lost sleep. Just keep your passwords all in one place so when you do forget, you'll be glad it's just a page away in your drawer.

    The book

    Promising review: "When we have so many internet addresses and passwords to remember, it gets really hard — especially when you get older and have trouble remembering what silly password you gave something. And, we are supposed to change or update passwords from time to time, so this is a great tool to help us do that. It certainly makes more sense than scribbling on a random piece of paper on your desk and then misplacing it. The trick, however, is to not misplace the book! I HIGHLY recommend this!!" —Carole P

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95.

    14. A pack of motion-sensing LED lights, because you'll be glad not to stub your toe for the millionth time when you're on your way to the kitchen in the middle of the night! These are a cheap way to get helpful lighting in places that need it most around your home. You don't need to get professional installation — just stick them on.

    A staircase with the lights lining it making it easier to get up and down

    They're battery-powered (three AAA batteries; not included) for cordless installation. They automatically turn on within 10 feet and automatically shut off after 15 seconds of no motion detected.

    Promising review: "Excellent unwired lights for places that would benefit from having lights but you don’t want the hassle and expense of hiring an electrician to do the wiring for the lights. I have four of these lights inside hallway shelves. This hallway gets a lot of foot traffic. In the evening, these lights get triggered on by a passerby by at least 20 times. I’ve had these lights for two whole months, and the original batteries are still good to go. Please be advised that these white lights are rather cool temperature lights. I would estimate around 5,000K. If you’re looking for something slightly warmer (i.e. slightly more yellow) then opt for the warm white version." —H. Jonathan K. Park

    Get a six-pack from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in two styles and two colors).

    15. A bottle of Burt's Bees sunburn lotion to soothe the biggest mistake you've made in a long time — forgetting the SPF!

    a before and after of a person's back becoming less red from a sunburn

    Two words: aloe and coconut! Those are the main two ingredients and with results like these, we have no choice but to stan.

    Promising review: "Best product ever for sunburns! No peeling or itching. Simply amazing! The photos are four days apart." —Carrie

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69.

    16. A pair of sunglasses that'll work with your prescription at an affordable price!

    GlassesShop / Via

    Get it from GlassesShop for $29.95 (available in three colors).

    17. A Fenty highlighter duo so your face can glow like your personality does!

    Fenty Beauty

    Promising review: "I am a shimmering pink princess with this highlighter on my face. I have swatched it all over my chest, shoulders, and cheeks. I have lost my mind over the Fenty highlighters. I put them on even when I don't leave my house 'cause I love them that much. I just feel beautiful with it on. Folks looking at me like I lost my mind cause I'm at home with a full face of makeup on and not even going anywhere. My kids are just shaking their heads cause I'm crazy about this product. Oh, and don't ask to borrow it cause the answer is no! My only problem with these highlighters is I can't decide which one to wear."Jazzy Red

    Get it from Fenty for $36 (available in nine shades).

    18. A portable bug bite suction tool that'll reduce the itching and swelling your body is experiencing after a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting.


    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    19. A bag of Bottle Bright tablets that'll clean your bottles, plastic containers, mugs, and everything else, with no scrubbing required. We love reusable bottles but boy do they get dirty. You'll be glad to have these on hand every now and again for a fresh clean.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. 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." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $8.

    20. A set of anti-chafing thigh bands to protect the skin on your inner thighs from rubbing together and getting red and irritated. Whether it's a long day exploring the city or a hike on a long trail, you'll be happy to have these on you.


    Promising review: "These are fantastic! I work overnights and wear dresses regularly to the office. This is it! So comfortable I fell asleep in them! No marks, no uncomfortable feeling or digging into the skin." —A. Spencer

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in six sizes and 17 colors).

    Read more about these anti-chafe bands in our closer look!

    21. A ceiling fan metal pull chain with two pulleys, because you've spent the last few years guessing which chain turns on the light and which turns on the fan. Plus, if you're short like me, these are great for extending the chain a bit so you can actually reach them now.,

    It's upgrading the small things in life you do every day that'll really make you glad you bought something!

    Promising review: "Not only can I finally tell which pull chain works which function, but since I added them to the ends of my existing pull chains it's no longer necessary for my ancient 5-foot-1-inch carcass to stand on tiptoe just to reach the blasted pulls. Last time I ended up with a stress fracture in my foot. NOT fun." —La Donna Bucket

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    22. A bottle of Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser because it'll glide onto your skin like silk as it dissolves into your pores, cleansing them of any dirt that built up throughout the day. A simple skincare routine you can depend on really makes a huge difference day to day.

    A series of images showing the pump applicator and the gel-like texture of the cleanser, as well as a shot of a model rubbing the cleanser on their eye and a before and after show that clearly shows how well the cleanser removed the same mode's eye makeup

    Promising review: "This cleanser feels amazing on the skin. I use it at night and it feels amazing and like the dirt is just melting away. In the morning, it's so rejuvenating. My favorite part of my routine! Also very good for sensitive skin!" —Soleil

    Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in full size and mini).

    23. A pair of five-blade herb scissors so you can say goodbye to frustrating attempts to chop parsley and basil with a regular knife.

    The scissors in use

    Promising review: "The herb scissors are genius. Those alone are priceless. I have all these beautiful herbs from the garden but dreaded spending the time to mince them. Now it takes no time at all. That is time I get to spend with my family. The blade covers are a really nice addition and they fit snugly, so there’s no worry about them coming off in the drawer. I’m very happy to have this set in my kitchen." —Wendy Bowen

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection at Amazon for $12.99.

    24. A pack of Scotch-Brite nonscratch sponges to gently lift baked-on stains from all kinds of cookware and countertops you don't want to scratch up.

    A person using the sponge on a dish removing stains

    Promising review: "I cook a lot. My husband bought me all stainless steel skillets about four years ago. I use the Scotch-Brite NonScratch Scrub Sponge at least three times a day every day cleaning those pots and skillets. I have never had a single scratch in on any of them using the nonscratch sponge. Plus, instead of going through a box of steel pads weekly, this sponge outlasts all of them and saves me money. Also, when I clean my stove top, I use the same Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Scrub Sponge and it has never scratched or harmed the paint on my stove (or refrigerator!). Excellent product, great price, and best of all, it is dependable each time I use it." —Kim

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.13 (or Subscribe and Save for $4.87/month).

    25. A silicone freezing tray that'll freeze a section of soup, sauce, or pasta, so you get perfect freshly frozen meals for the week. When you come home after a long day at work you'll be super thankful this is one less thing you have to think about.

    It comes with a lid to help maintain freshness and keep out odors. It's made of food-safe silicone that's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention since sliced bread! How many times have you thrown out soup that you forgot about in your fridge??? Well, say goodbye to spoiled soup! Finally, a way to store measured quantities of broth, but I love to use mine for soup and...wait for it...SMOOTHIES! These cubes are the best for freezing measured quantities of smoothies, simply throw one in the Vitamix, and boom! You have a fresh, already icy cold smoothie for breakfast or a snack! For anyone with limited freezer space which, let's face it, is most of us, this is a real gem. I was a bit worried about how easily the cubes would slide out, but no problems at all! The best part is how easy the cubes store in a gallon sized ziplock bag so you can reuse the cubes. AND they are dishwasher safe??? Souper Cubes, why did you take so long to come into my life!??! I can't wait until the holiday season so I can gift these as stocking stuffers — to anyone I know, you now know your gift." —Texas Sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    26. A mini fabric steamer, because you can't believe the amount of times you've wanted to wear your favorite outfit but it was wrinkly beyond belief. Once you buy this, you'll be glad you bought it time and time again., Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    I personally own this steamer and I love how compact and effortless it is! Pop off the top spout, pour in water from the sink, plug it in and within SECONDS it's steaming and ready to go.

    Promising review: "I’ve had this for a few months now and I use it all the time! It heats up so fast and steams the fabric within seconds! I have had no problems with water spitting out or being burnt at all. I love this machine so much I am bringing it with me on my international trips! So I have to say don’t think twice this is a must-buy!" —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    Check out a BuzzFeed editor's review of this steamer to find out more.

    27. A pair of lightweight and durable escape tracks that everyone will wish they had once they get stuck in a tough spot. The raised tracks prevent vehicle tires from spinning on snow, ice, mud or sand.

    the product in use getting a car unstuck from the snow

    These are great if you're someone who likes to take your car off the beaten path. If you're ever stuck in one of these situations, you'll be happy to have these guys in your trunk!

    Promising review: "These traction pads are amazing! For anybody that's never used them, essentially you jam them against your drive tires in slick conditions or if you're stuck in sand, and your tires grip them and pull you right out! The bright orange makes them easy to see after digging them into the mud, and the knobs are durable enough to withstand a very large truck's beating. For the price, the quality, the durability, and the hundreds of uses, you can't go wrong with these. If I could give them six stars I would have!" —Arianna

    Get them from Amazon for $133.17+ (available in three colors and three styles)

    28. A hand-held pressure washer, because every time you use it it'll remind you how much time, effort, and money you're saving by not having to scrub by hand.


    You can use this pressure washer on outdoor cushions, wood decks, house siding, and so many other places. It has 1500 PSI at 1.2 GPM so dirt and grime don't stand a chance. Order includes a 250-degree and 40-degree quick connect tip and a 20-foot hose for greater reach. It also comes with a soap applicator and a 35-foot power cord for when you use it outside.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite new toy! I already owned the regular Green Works power washer, but being a 63-year-old, there were times I just didn't want to drag the big one up and down steps, so my son suggested I look at a hand held pressure washer. I didn't even know they existed, but found this one on Amazon and since I was already happy with the large Green Works, decided to try it. The first thing I used it for was to power-wash my shower grout and it worked great! The electric and water lines were long enough to reach into my shower and it did a spectacular job. No more hand scrubbing for me!" —Linda S. Marsh

    Get it from Amazon for $89+ (available in two styles).

    29. A lipstick-sized portable charger with more than enough juice to revive your dying phone without taking up too much space. Always a lifesaver to have a charger around when you need it most.

    the charger in black

    This lil' guy holds more than a full charge for an iPhone 6s and can juice a Galaxy S8 to 80%.

    Promising review: "I have several backup battery chargers for my devices, but this is the one I go to again and again. The main reason is the size — this fits anywhere. It's like the size of a very small flashlight or, for ladies, probably a large lipstick. My other chargers tend to be bulky and rectangular, whereas this easily fits in my pocket. It will readily charge up my iPhone, and while it won't fully charge my tablet, it will extend the battery life." —B. Nommensen

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

    30. A few Mighty Handles that'll help you achieve your life-long goal of bringing the groceries from the car to your kitchen in just one trip. So helpful and so satisfying all at the same time!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm a personal shopper so I got this to help with the obscene amount of bags I have to carry you on a regular basis. I am so glad I did because they make the amount of trips I need to take one. If it fits in a bag it goes in on one trip, even if it's gallons of milk or cans of soup, both of which I have done without any bag ripping or undue stress on me. I can't recommend this product enough!" —swtrbl555

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    31. A pet hair remover roller, because the second you start sneezing your head off from dust and dog hair you'll be so glad to have this handy to save the day (and your nose).

    Added bonus! This product doesn't use sticky adhesive paper. The roller can be reused over and over again because of its high quality bristles that grab the hair like a brush!

    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.

    32. An eco-friendly menstrual cup if bulky pads and tampons are just not your thing. It's petite yet capable of holding a heavy flow! And it's collapsible, washable, and super easy to remove with the attached loop.

    The menstrual cup

    The Lily Cup One is made of medical-grade silicone and can stay in for up to 12 hours.

    Get it from Intimina for $24.95.

    33. A tub of O'Keefe's Working Hands cream, because there's nothing like super dry and irritated hands to make you thankful that moisturizer exists and that you bought some.

    Especially because winter is around the corner people!!!

    Promising review: "This past winter was really tough on my hands. I had my fingers wrapped in Band-Aids almost all winter. As soon as I started using this I could tell the difference almost right away. One week is all it took of daily use to get rid of the cracks. No more pain when I had to use my fingers (how can you not?). It definitely feels different that most hand creams. I guess that is why it works. It feels like you have had a paraffin treatment. It is the only cream that has worked for me, and now I am buying the four-packs. I use it every day just to make sure I never have a problem like I did this past winter." —B

    Get a 3.4-ounce jar from Amazon for $6.49.

    34. A wine vacuum sealer for anyone who likes to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner and doesn't want to spoil the whole bottle. Drink more, save more!


    Promising review: "My wife loves red wine. I don't. We're also poor. This means that when we open a bottle, she's had to do one of two things. 1) Drink it all at once or 2) Leave it open. The cheap stuff we buy goes bad pretty darn fast. This was a nice cheap vacuum that worked well and held a seal on a variety of bottles. My wife can enjoy a glass a day all week and not feel guilty about it going bad. I won't say that it's saved my marriage or anything like that, but it's nice little addition to our kitchen." —John

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89.

    35. A fabric defuzzer to make all of your run-down sweaters, throw pillows, and furniture look like they just came from the store all without having to spend tons of $$$ on repairs.

    Before photo of a couch leg that's pilling and an after photo of the same couch, which now looks brand new after using the shaver

    Promising review: "I don’t normally rave about things like this. I bought this on a whim in last attempts to save my favorite duvet cover. The pills had gotten to the point where it was seriously uncomfortable to sleep with them getting all up in my leg space. I thought I was going to have to get a new duvet cover entirely. Along came this lil baby. Not only is my duvet cover basically brand new, but I have found a new hobby. I’m depilling everything. Sweatshirts, leggings, blankets, socks, anything that looks like it needs some love. It does the job quickly and leaves everything looking fresh." —Dena Jensen

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six colors and three styles).
