Amazon

Promising review: "I purchased with skepticism, but after using them I am pleasantly surprised. I LOVE this product!! Our laundry used to come out smelling WORSE than before I washed it. I thought I needed to buy a new washing machine. NO!!! I used two tabs initially (two different wash cycles), then use one a month for maintenance.

Promising review: "Probably one of the best shops I’ve dealt with on Etsy ever! Amazing customer service — everything felt personalized and intimate from beginning to finish. Shipping was super fast! Packaged perfectly. And absolutely BEAUTIFULLY made. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. I got this for my husband for our one-year anniversary, and I know he’s just going to love it. I absolutely plan on ordered more from this shop. Thank you for making our big day so special! This is a 6-star shop!" —Natalie

Blueland

Promising review: "Always trying to find ways to live more sustainably and with less waste. Blueland is a perfect way to do that with re-using the same bottles and you can re-up whenever you need to. I ended up purchasing another foaming hand soap bottle for the bathroom — I would order extra of the hand soap tablets because it does go pretty quick compared to the rest." —Cait F.

Get it from Blueland for $39.

6. A drill brush kit that includes three different sized brush heads you can attach to your drill to make removing all of the grime from your tub soooooo much easier.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I let my tub get extra dirty on purpose because I knew this brush set was coming. In five minutes my tub was sparkling clean. This item is no joke. The flat brushes are awesome for big surfaces and the cone brush hits the hard to reach corners. I liked them so much I bought a set for my mom." —Jason B.

Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra stiff bristles).

7. A minimalist concrete toothbrush holder, designed to dry your brush naturally without a bunch of gross bacteria and water building up. Plus, it won't take up much precious counter space and it'll add a charming touch to any bathroom.

CedarandStoneGarden / Etsy

Promising review: "This little toothbrush holder is awesome! Looks cool on the counter, much better then a plastic or metal cup style. I like that the holes go all the way through so that water doesn't build up in the bottom and get nasty." —Julie Pokorny

Get it from CedarandStoneGarden on Etsy for $8.50+ (available in 20 colors).

8. A fast-acting carpet spot-removing spray that'll get rid of those "I thought this would never come out" stains.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING! I was a little skeptical because I have some carpet stains I’ve let sit for a while because I didn’t have any cleaner at the time of the accident. The accidents have included coffee spills and poorly cleaned cat barf stains. I ordered this because I didn’t want to spend the money on a carpet cleaning service plus you have to be out of your house too long. This stuff was INCREDIBLE. You just spray a concentrated amount and then scrub the stain away. It worked in every single stain I had and was super quick and easy. 100% recommend if you need a good spot cleaner!" —Kimberly

Get it from Amazon for $11.40.

9. An incredibly soft and cozy reversible microfiber comforter that's hypoallergenic and machine washable, so you can sleep more soundly and clean with less hassle. Plus, it'll keep your toes nice and toasty on cold nights and mornings.

The rug on the floor of a room
Wayfair

Promising review: "This rug is gorgeous. Goes perfectly with our decor in our new house. Had a complement about it from a carpet cleaning guy who was working on our already existing bedroom carpet. He noticed it, liked the style, turned a corner over to see what it was made of and proclaimed it to be 'really good'. We love it! Very happy with the new home purchases from Wayfair." —Deborah

Get it from Wayfair for $32.99+ (originally $233+; available in eight sizes and eight colors).

11. A garbage disposal cleaner that requires basically no work on your part, and even puts on a bubbly show that'll entertain your little ones while getting rid of that horrific smell you thought would never leave your sink.

youtube.com

Here's what you do: Run some hot water, pop one of the packets in your disposer, let it foam, then wait for the foam to fully disappear. Garbage disposer = clean and ickiness-free.

Promising review: "This product works! I followed the directions, which are super easy, and was very satisfied to see the gross slime and muck that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal, and the magic happens quickly! Very powerful and successful cleaning! The scent was not what I would call overpowering, but the inside of the disposal is super clean, confirmed. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me. The garbage disposal runs much easier and more quiet now. When things fall into the disposal, my hands are not covered in gross slimy stuff anymore." —JSullivanJ

Get a pack of four from Amazon for $6.29.

12. A very fun Golden Girls clean/dirty dishwasher magnet to help take the guesswork out of loading and unloading the dishwasher.

Get it from TheRedSwanGiftShop on Etsy for $7.95 (available in two styles).

13. A made-to-order ceramic soap dish ingeniously designed with a drainage spout to transport excess water directly into your sink instead of building up at the bottom of the dish and getting all over the counter.

Kim Hau Ceramics

Promising review: "I love this soap dish! I bought some handmade soap at a farmer's market and wanted a soap dish for it. This one caught my eye because of the sensible drain, the minimalist design, and the matte black glaze." —Linda BInder

Get it from Kim Hau Ceramics on Etsy for $30 (available in four colors).

14. An adorably tiny picnic table that's easy to attach onto your fence or a tree so you can watch your neighborhood squirrels enjoy the feast of their dreams.

DelgadoHCTreasures / Etsy, Michelle Braga

Promising review: "I recently gifted this to my brother-in-law who had already managed to gain the trust of his local squirrels (by leaving peanuts out for them in a bowl in front of his house). It's been DELIGHTFUL to receive photos from him of the bushy-tailed creatures snackin' away. This really is the gift that keeps on giving." —Heather Braga, BuzzFeed Staff

Get it from DelgadoHCTreasures on Etsy for $22.50.

15. Some little golden critters to enhance your houseplants.

AnotherStudio

Promising review: "My plant animals arrived on time and they were exactly as described.

I'm looking forward to visitors spotting them 'hanging about' in my home." —Hazel Coulter

Get it from AnotherStudio on Etsy for $8.35 (available in 12 animals).

17. A hard-water remover to remove the cloudy film you thought was just a part of your glass surfaces now.

amazon.com

Promising review: "When we moved into our new place the shower doors looked like they had never been cleaned before. I tried at least 10 different products and methods to remove the hard water spots but nothing even made a dent. Bio Clean, however, was like a magic eraser! I scrubbed each door for about 10 minutes and it was incredible! I’ve never written a cleaning product review before but this one is worth every penny." —Shane B

Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in two sizes).

18. And some wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil that'll impressively hide those dings and scratches on your floors and furniture. You'll love telling people who ask where you got your new coffee table...that you didn't get a new coffee table.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

Get it from Amazon for $14.19.

19. A pumice stone to easily keep the inside of your toilet spotless and positively sparkling!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I had stubborn stains on my toilet bowl that wouldn't come out with toilet bowl cleaner, the toilet bowl brush, bleach, or anything else I tried. The stains were stuck for months but the pumice was able to remove it instantly. The pumice did not scratch the bowl at all." —Margaret D.

Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two quantities).

20. A small tabletop fireplace (or candle holder) that'll help spread the warmth while making your table look even classier.

1Man1Garage / Etsy

Fuel isn't included, but you can buy some at Amazon.

One Man One Garage is a small Tennessee-based business founded by inventor and artisan Marcus Williams, who creates all sorts of unique gifts and decor items.

Promising review: "This arrived in the cutest package, I hardly wanted to take it apart to put the fireplace together! It was so easy to build and the final product is SO cute!! I love this, I will definitely recommend this artist to my friends and will be exploring their other products!!" —Paige Oberle

Get it from 1Man1Garage on Etsy for $39+ (available with or without rocks/sand — the sand is needed to disperse the heat of the flame away from the wood, but you can easily find some on your own if you'd rather not buy it here, and the lava rocks are completely optional/for decoration).

21. A beyond adorable vintage camper bird house perfect for your flying friends to make camp in.

1Man1Garage

No glue is necessary for assembly.

Promising review: "I love this so much! I just built it, so I'm not sure if I will get any inhabitants or not, but that's okay because it’s SO CUTE. Took a little brain power to put together cause the pieces aren’t labeled, but it’s (clearly) do-able and a fun little project regardless. The little details are so fun, and it is very well-made. Highly recommend!" —Lauren Woods

Get it from 1Man1Garage on Etsy for $30+ (available in 10 colors).

22. A soft and cozy plush throw blanket that reviewers can't stop raving about.

Nordstrom

Promising review: "This is my favorite throw blanket. I buy them every year during the sale, they're such a great deal. Always the first blanket everyone in the family reaches for. It's soft, mid-weight, durable, and washes well." —MommaNord

Get it from Nordstrom $39.50 (available in 10 colors).

23. An orthopedic pain relief seat cushion to help reduce tailbone pain, sciatica, leg, and lower back pain. It'll also help keep you from slumping and will encouraging better posture for a much more comfortable sitting experience thanks to the memory foam.

Amazon, amazon.com

The cover is removable and washable according to reviewers.

Promising review: "I have been using the seat pillow for two weeks now, and it has done what it advertises. It has reduced pain, held up up well, and maintained its shape. Given I am not sitting on it all day, which may impact the wear and tear, it still has provided an increase in support and comfort, and has helped reduce my dull sciatica pain when having to sit for extended periods of time." —Icarus Rising

Get it from Amazon for $38.95+ (available in five colors).

24. An ergonomic desk chair that's way more comfortable and better for your posture than spending all day hunched over your laptop on the couch or in bed. Your back will thank you, and you'll be surprised by how much more productive you'll feel.

The mesh back black task chair with arm rests
Office Depot

Promising review: "I bought this chair for my office where I spend around six hours a day. With the three different adjustment leavers it was easy to set it for my needs. When we added a new staff member with back problems, I noticed he could not sit for more than 15 minutes without getting up and walking around. So I brought my chair to him and told him to adjust it to fit his needs. He sat for the next four hours without thinking about it and the next two days. When I asked him how he liked the chair he said, 'it must be pretty good because I have not given any thought to how I felt after you brought it to me.' So I gave him that chair and ordered me another one just like it." —DVBCSandraD

Get it from Office Depot for $229.99.

25. An Always pan designed to replace not six, not seven, but EIGHT pieces of cookware. Don't let the trendy design make you skeptical, this bb lives up to the hype, and has the reviews to prove it.

Our Place

Our Place is a WOC-founded brand bringing inventive cookware and kitchen products. You can braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, boil, and more with this pan. It does the same job as a fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, nonstick pan, spatula, and spoon rest. The spatula is designed to fit neatly on the pan's handle. The pan is dishwasher-safe and only weighs 3 pounds.

Long, but worthwhile promising review: "I bought this pan not sure it was going to live up to the hype. Yeah, it was cute (I got the green color to match my kitchen color palette) but I've bought plenty of cute, millennial-branded products that turned out to be all style and no substance. How good could it be? It's phenomenal. I got it three weeks ago and since then the only time I've used a different pan was when the Always pan was already in use for one dish and I needed to cook something else. 

The nonstick coating is great. Eggs don't stick! Dried-on sauce doesn't stick! Yesterday's oatmeal doesn't stick! It all just wipes off with almost no scrubbing, which is great, because I have no desire to put this pan in the dishwasher, because what if I need to cook something?!

 The pan surface heats up really quickly! I cooked on my normal boring stove, and I was shocked how much faster my pasta water came to a boil.

 The pan surface also heats really evenly, and is amazing at searing. I cooked steak in it last night, hoping I wasn't making a mistake by using nonstick instead of cast iron, but it gave the steaks a flawless sear, way more even than my cast-iron pan. I was super impressed.

 I love the built-in spatula rest. So much. My only comment on the pan is that the hole in the spatula could be just a hair larger so that it doesn't require any leveraging to remove from the rest, but very minor complaint.

 Love the steamer/strainer basket. Haven't used it for steaming yet, but love it for pasta. It's so much easier to just lift all the pasta out and leave the pasta water behind than carry the whole pan of boiling water over to the sink to pour out, all the while terrified that one of my cats will come in and get boiling water splashed on them or something.

 I love the lid, especially the steam vent feature. It's really great for cooking grains. 

Basically, this pan is totally worth what you spend on it. I'm moving in six months and I'm planning to donate most of my cookware when I do. Very confident that I won't miss any of it, thanks to this pan." —Abigail R.

Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in six colors; ships in February).

26. A luxuriously soft bath towel that somehow manages to be lightweight, exceptionally absorbent, AND super quick drying.

Four towels in different colors hanging
Snowe

Promising review: "These towels are Heaven. Made my first Snowe order over six months ago, cautious about purchasing a towel that cost about twice what I usually spend. So, so, SO worth it. Six months later, that first towel looks just as pristine as the brand new one I just bought. They're soft, super absorbent and best of all: they don't shed! (It's such a downer when you've had a nice shower and feel all clean, only to towel off and be covered in lint.) I cannot say enough good things about this product; they are a wonderful, worthwhile little luxury." —Katrina A.

Get it from Snowe for $30 (available in five colors).

27. A Shark vacuum to impress you with its powerful suction and deep cleaning abilities. Reviewers also love how easy it is to use all of the vacuum's helpful tools and features that make cleaning easy and, dare I say, kinda fun?

Amazon

Promising review: "Whoa. It's actually fun to vacuum with this. It works so well! The pet attachments for upholstery and carpet are no joke. They really do get anything clean. I have back problems, but the detachable wand and handle make it super easy for even me to use! Great for stairs too. The filter is really easy to access and clean, and the container empties really easily as well. I like that it separates the dirt from other little knickknacks you might accidentally vacuum up. That's probably my favorite feature, actually. I did a lot of research before buying this vacuum and I have to say, 10/10, if you have pets, get this vacuum. You won't be disappointed." —nicole

Get it from Amazon for $249.99.

28. A T-handle faucet attachment that'll make outdoor faucets much easier to turn on and off, especially if you're dealing with arthritis or other pain.

Promising review: "This T-handle attachment has made life easier for me on my outdoor faucets. I have painful arthritis in my fingers and it has made it easier for me in my garden. Great invention. Thank You!" —Nellie J

Get it from The Grommet for $7.95.

29. A 1.5-inch memory foam mattress topper to help you get a better night sleep. It's incredibly comfy and can also help reduce the back pain you get from sleeping on your currently topper-less mattress.

Target

Promising review: "My mattress is embarrassingly old and hard as a rock. Laying on my back hurt my lower back and laying on my side hurt my hip and shoulder. I didn’t want to buy a new mattress since I’ll be moving at some point and will be getting a bigger one, and it fits my current bed frame so I got this mattress topper on sale and now my bed feels like heaven!!! I wish I had bought this years ago. I actually look forward to going to bed now and honestly have such a hard time getting up in the morning because it feels so comfy." –Cristina

Get it from Target for $36+ (fits mattresses from twin to California King sizes).

30. A natural surface spray great for just about any surface so you can stop having to buy specific solutions for every single part of your home.

Promising review: "Hello, it's me, a newly minted Laundress head. I started using this spray about a week ago and in the days since have completely lost control! I insist on cleaning every corner of my apartment with the sweet, ylang ylang-scented stuff. Did I mention it is the first product that's ever successfully worked to remove all the grime on my fridge? No choice but to stan." —Colin Gorenstein, BuzzFeed Staff

Get it from The Laundress for $12.

31. A bidet attachment for your toilet that'll make the cleanup portion of doing your business much more hygienic and refreshing. Plus, installation is a breeze, and you'll save on tp $$ in the long run!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this product so much! This is the second one I bought. I bought the first on a whim when the toilet paper shortage started and now I can't live without it. It is super easy to install. A 60+ woman can install easily, so it shouldn't be a problem for anyone. The water isn't heated, but ambient room temperature is fine once you get used to it. The spray is powerful and easy to adjust with the dial. I wish I had found this years ago!" —Lynn St Martin

Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two styles).

32. Some long-distance friendship lamps to warm your heart and bring you closer to family and friends. Every time you touch yours, theirs lights up in a custom color, letting them know that you're thinking about them — and vice versa!

Split-screen image of one Model touching the lamp and other seeing their's light up
The Grommet

Promising review: "Such an amazing product. Really creative way of just telling someone you are thinking of them. And a great idea for young kids to connect with their grandparents too in an independent way since they don’t often have the words or attention to hold a full conversation and can’t read yet, but they can figure out that when they want to say I love you to Grandma, they touch the lamp and it turns 'their' color, and then Grandma can reply using her color to say I love you back. It’s simple. It’s sweet. And it’s a great gift to keep families close." —Kathleen

Get a set of two from The Grommet for $85.

33. An under-door draft stopper to keep cold air, gross bugs, and scary rodents from sneaking in under your doors. It's easy to install and stays in place so you can save some money on heat and...pest control.

Amazon

Promising review: "I bought this because bugs were starting to get into the house and in order to fix what was wrong with the door we would have had to take the door off the hinges. We really wanted an easy fix since we will be putting in a new door come spring. My husband put this on and it has worked great. Not only are the bugs staying out but the extra noise and cold coming in are no longer a problem. I would definitely recommend this." —Rose E. Archambault

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

34. A vanity stool set that'll dress up your space and give you the perfect spot to put on makeup, do a face mask, or even use as a cute lil' desk.

Promising review: "Beautiful desk. Was very fast and easy to assemble. Turned it into a desk for my son for school." —Melissa

Get it from Wayfair for $164.99 (originally $258.99; available in three colors).

35. A ventilated gel memory foam pillow designed to maximize air circulation and regulate temperature so both sides are the cool side. Plus, the memory foam makes this pillow much more comfortable for your head, neck, and shoulders.

Amazon

Promising review: "This pillow is just what I was looking for! I am a side sleeper and tend to place my arm underneath my pillow, so this works perfectly for me — it molds around my arm so I barely even notice it. I have had issues with other pillows being either too fluffy or too hard, but this one is soft while still giving me the support I need. It stays cool throughout the night and remains firm at the right places. The memory foam pillow was packed nice and tight, and I let it air out for about 48 hours before using it. There were no problems with any odor like other memory foam pillows and mattress toppers. I plan on purchasing more for my home in the near future." —Joel

Get it from Amazon for $25.13+ (available in three sizes) and check out our full review of this pillow here!

36. A phases of the moon garland to dress your walls up with shimmering golden moons that'll make your space feel even cozier.

Amazon

Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with this statement piece! The moons are so well crafted and the metal doesn't feel cheap. The packaging was so cute, I want to keep it. It even came with a cute little care card. Perfect to help brighten up any room in your house!" —Roriann

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

37. A roll of reusable, machine-washable bamboo paper towels that can replace SIXTY rolls of regular paper towels. If you're looking for an easy way to reduce waste and save money, these durable towels are a great place to start!

Amazon, amazon.com

You get twenty towels in a roll, and can be used just like you use regular paper towels.

Promising review: "I've had these bamboo towels for a month now and am incredibly impressed! They're much larger than a regular paper towel, thicker, softer and more absorbent. I've washed the first ones several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. I've only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of Brawny by now. One caveat...when you wash them, you're supposed to air dry them, so I haven't sent any through the dryer. And I haven't needed to, because allowing them to air dry has not affected the quality of the towels when I 're-roll' them!" —A. Clark

Get them on Amazon for $8.99.

38. A cute tissue box cover you'll wanna keep stocked at all times because of how fun it is to pull tissues out of the chimney.

The tissue box covers sitting on a stack of books
Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I, an adult woman, cannot remember the last time I bought a box of tissues for my home (though I have several purse packs?!). It may have been when I most recently had a sinus infection, which I guess was two-plus years ago. But now that I’m playing house as a grown-ass person in an apartment to myself, I’m trying to be *responsible*. So obviously buying this whimsical tissue box cover we’ve featured in a million BuzzFeed shopping posts is peak adulting.

Perhaps the reason I’ve been so bad at keeping around a box of tissues is because tissues just look...kind of ugly out in the open. But not with this lil’ cover! Now it’s a ~design element~ that I’ll hopefully remember to keep full. For now, it’s filled with a square box of tissues I unearthed from my old apartment’s closet while packing; it's presently neatly housed inside the tissue box cover, providing the "smoke" for the tiny chimney. The only downside to committing to this box is that I'll have to buy square-shaped tissue boxes only now. But I can live with that. And with my not-snotty nose." —Elizabeth Lilly

Get it from Amazon for $5.75.

39. A set of ceiling fan pull chains so you'll finally be able to tell which one controls the fan and which controls the light without always pulling the wrong one first.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh no... now the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek ... now you're in the dark.) They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor. When you notice them — most of the time, who even thinks about a ceiling fan pull chain?" —LHD

Get them on Amazon for $5.60.

40. And a rechargeable lighter to make running out of lighter fluid a thing of the past!

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

This is especially great if you have mobility issues or arthritis as it turns on with a simple switch.

Promising review: "Welcome to the future! These are amazing. I never have to worry about running out of lighter fluid again." —Chassie
