    2. Some shower steamers you can place in the corner of your shower to release calming fragrances while you unwind. Shower people deserve bath bombs too!

    Promising review: "These are the best shower steamers I've ever tried. Usually they aren't strong enough or they melt too quickly to even enjoy. They are also bigger than what you can buy at the store. Id say they are about a hockey puck size. One lasted my entire shower and still smelled amazing even after i was done. These are the best shower steamers hands-down. I would definitely buy these again." —Krista

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    3. A variety pack of TRUFF sauces — featuring the Original, Hotter, and White TRUFF hot sauces — ready to throw a party for your tastebuds and work their way into way more meals and snacks than you'd expect!

    TRUFF, Jonathan Mazzei / BuzzFeed

    This stuff is excellent and really grows on you! The first time I tried it, I wasn't entirely sure how I felt, but by the end of the first week, I found myself reaching for it with almost every meal. While all three options have a lot of similarities, they each have their own distinct personality. At first, they were all a little creamier and almost...tomato-y (?) tasting than I expected. Then, I realized there was NO dairy or tomato present at all, but a thickness and slight sweetness almost reminiscent of red bell peppers. The truffle flavor is present but subtle, and the sauce has a solid kick without being overwhelmingly hot. As far as the differences between the three, the White TRUFF sauce is a hint sweeter than the other two, the Original has a slightly earthier flavor than the others, and the extra spiciness of the Hotter TRUFF sauce spreads through the mouth quicker and is definitely hotter than the rest. Verdict: They're all really good! So far, these sauces have shined brightest when added to a nice tomato sauce, drizzled over a slice of pizza, scooped up by crispy french fries, and, believe it or not, even added to a salad dressing, but that's still barely scratching the surface! Plus it comes in a very classy looking box that's great for gifts.

    Get it from Amazon or Truff for $69.99, or try just the Original for $17.98, the White Truff sauce for $34.99, and Hotter Truff sauce for $17.98.

    4. An ergonomic desk chair for anyone whose work space could use an upgrade in the comfort department.

    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 $249.99.

    6. Some wood polish and conditioner to make your scratched up furniture magically look brand-new again.

    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 it 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 $12.23.

    7. A reusable tote that folds down until it's teeny-tiny, so you can just toss it into your purse until you need it.


    Promising review: "I've been trying to minimize usage of unnecessary plastic bags when running quick errands. I've bought re-usable grocery bags, but they are too large for a quick pop into the drug store. Cue this bag — it's cute, it's small, but it holds more than you'd think and is so sturdy! I keep it in my purse all the time and I use it constantly. It's the perfect size for a small needs situation and I've used it at the grocery store, the drug store, little boutique purchases, everything. Love it!" —dcjaime

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    8. A stunning duvet that'll make your bedroom feel like spring every day of the year.

    The hamper with a towel inside

    It's got over 1,000 five-star reviews for a reason!

    Promising review: "This is by far one of the most innovative ideas I have seen in a long time. No more plastic dirty clothes hampers, showing off all you haven't washed. This fits just perfect between my dresser and the door to the closet. Holds tons of clothes (they never seem to reach the top) and it is attractive to look at. Great invention! (Must have been a woman who designed this). Well-made and attractive!" —Pamala

    Get it from Wayfair for $20.99.

    10. Some water resistant Command hooks to make hanging up necessities incredibly simple — especially in wet places like the shower. No tools are required, and they don't leave any damage or sticky residue behind should you want to move or remove them.

    A shower brush hanging on the hook

    Promising review: "I needed shower hooks to hold up or loofahs in the shower and these work great. Our bathroom is brushed nickel finish and these match well. The install takes 30 seconds. They seem to be strong, I attached them to our shower tiles, we have had no issues with they coming loose." —Stan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.36.

    11. A handheld electric milk frother to kick the coffee you make at home up a notch so you can feel less ~FOAM-O~ when you walk by your favorite coffee shop.

    Bespoke Post

    Get it from Bespoke Post for $150.

    16. Some Avarelle tea tree and calendula oil-infused pimple patches that actually help reduce acne overnight by drawing out pus trapped under the skin. Even reviewers who thought they'd tried it all were blown away by how you can literally see the gunk these patches pull out.

    Review image of the patches covered in gunk

    Promising review: "These are incredible! I was totally skeptical about acne patches in general. I ordered a few different brands, and these by Avarelle are by far the superior choice! They are super thin and nearly invisible. The patches create a super tight seal that doesn't budge even during sleep — they don't peel off easy, but they don't harm sensitive skin, either. AND THEY WORK! It's amazing to see all the gunk these things suck out. Totally reduces acne overnight or, at the very least, reduces pimples to barely perceptible! Would recommend!" —Amanda L. Purnell

    Get 40 packs from Amazon for $8.50.

    17. Some streak-free anti-fog spray you can use on eyeglasses, face shields, car windows, shower glass, and more to prevent fogging.

    A reviewer image of a person wearing unfogged glasses with their face mask holding up the spray

    Promising review: "I bought this six weeks ago and it’s definitely an awesome product. My glasses always fogged up going inside, summer or winter. This eliminates that problem. Also since COVID, wearing masks really creates condensation on my glasses. I use it every few days and the problem is solved. Great product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in four sizes).

    18. A washable sponge so you can stop buying and throwing away disposable ones. Just pop this one in the washing machine or dishwasher when it gets gross, let it air dry, and it's good as new!

    Get it from Marley's Monsters on Etsy for $10 (available in three colors).

    19. Some septic-safe garbage disposal cleaner to banish whatever gross smells are emanating from your sink area. The best part? It gets up close and personal with the gross stuff so you don't have to.

    Here's all that's required of you: 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.

    23. An Obé fitness subscription so you can participate in live and on-demand classes from the comfort of your own home. Their live workouts are short, so you can fit them into your schedule, but they're also intense and truly joyful. There are 5,482 on-demand classes to choose from, and the opportunity to connect with other people in the community to encourage and motivate you makes the experience even more worthwhile.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: Oh Obé, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Seriously, I could go on all day about how much I love this fitness program, but I'll try and keep it as concise as possible. I've been using Obé for more than a year and a half now, and I am still completely obsessed with it and think it is one of the greatest workout programs out there. Since I’ve never belonged to a gym while living in New York, I am a self-proclaimed master of working out at home. I started using Obé and then went back to my old at-home workout and switched back to Obé again because I realized I liked it so much. The classes are a great workout, yet the 28 minutes go by super fast, and I’m not counting down the minutes till it’s over. You don't technically need any equipment for the workout, but you can "level up" with simple equipment, such as a resistance loop, weights, and sliders.

    The live classes are fun and give me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. And the instructors even give shoutouts to people in the class, and it's actually a pretty cool feeling when you hear your name. When I can’t make the live classes, there are SO many on-demand. Obé offers a ton of varieties of classes, including strength, HIIT, sculpt, yoga, barre, and dance. Plus, you can filter classes in the on-demand section, so you can select a low-impact class if you have neighbors to worry about.

    Obé has me challenging myself and trying out new classes. I never would have thought I would enjoy a Dance HIIT or even a regular HIIT class, but now I do them regularly. And I even started taking strength classes in the past year and had to purchase heavier 8- and 10-pound weights, which past-me would be been so shocked about. It pushes me to be stronger and more confident and really has been such a good thing for me in the past year. I feel so strong because of Obé and really encourage anyone to give it a try." —Abby Kass, BuzzFeed Staff

    Get a monthly subscription from Obé for $27/month, $65/quarter, or $199/year.

    24. An incredibly soft cashmere scarf that'll keep your insides nice and cozy while making your outside look truly fantastic!

    JoS. A. Bank, Jonathan Mazzei, BuzzFeed

    I own and love this scarf! The color is gorgeous and looks phenomenal with a smart outfit and overcoat as well as something more dressed down. The cashmere is super soft and does a nice job blocking out the cold. If you're looking for a scarf you can wear like a giant blanket in sub zero temperatures, this might be a little on the small side, but it's perfect for a layer of extra warmth on chilly nights and adding a comfy and classy touch to any outfit.

    Get it from JoS. A. Bank for $65 (originally $130).

    25. Some cruelty-free, vegan-friendly body wash filled with a luxurious blend of essential oils to help nourish and cleanse your skin without drying it out. It's light, fragrant, and will leave you feeling refreshed after a long day.

    Get it from Public Goods for $4.50.

    26. A jar of Sichuan Chili Crisp from Fly By Jing you'll wanna use on pretty much everything, and I'm not exaggerating. Your home cooked noodle dishes just found their missing ingredient. Your scrambled eggs just got a lot more complex. I finally tried it on ice cream, like everyone told me I should, and now I understand why. This stuff is hot and tingly without being overwhelmingly spicy, *Plus*, it's vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, and made without preservatives or artificial flavors.

    Fly By Jing

    Jing Gao, the founder and CEO of Fly By Jing, is a chef, entrepreneur, and a globally-renowned expert on Chinese cuisine. While the flavors are inspired by her hometown of Chengdu, Jing's recipes are deeply personal and offer a unique taste you won't find anywhere else.

    I got this sauce as a gift, and I have been obsessed ever since I tried it. It combines the most prized Sichuan peppercorns with fragrant dried chilies, fermented black beans, garlic, shallots and more for a numbing, umami-rich flavor that has enhanced truly everything I've tried it on — without overpowering the other flavors. I've been struggling to find the right sauce to take my home-cooked dishes to the next level, and let me tell you, this is it! Plus, the packaging is super cute and thoughtful, and mine even came with a beautiful little zine that includes a breakdown of the ingredients, some amazing recipe ideas, and more!

    Get it from Fly By Jing for $15.

    Reviewer before, during, and after images of a thermos using the tablets

    These are biodegradable and odor-free.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — 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." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    30. And a hilarious mug you can buy without even having to set foot in a spite store.
