    Promising review: "I've worn a lot of sleeping masks before, but this one is completely different. It doesn't move at night no matter how much I toss and turn. The weight from the flax seed and lavender makes the perfect combo for the best night of sleep you'll ever have. Even helps with migraines!!" —Deborah Connor

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in five colors).

    2. Handmade shower steamers made with refreshing citrus and peppermint essential oils to start your day on the right note. They're relaxing like a bath bomb, but much more practical for folks who only have time for a quick shower in the morning.

    The Herbal Zen/Amazon Handmade

    This Pennsylvania-based small biz also stocks plenty of other soothing scents! Some reviewers say that since a little goes along way, each cube can last for multiple showers. 

    Promising review: "These are the only shower steamers that actually work. I have tried shower steamers by several other companies and none of them perform satisfactorily. Herbal Zen is fantastic! The Morning Citrus gives me a great boost in the morning. I highly recommend this product." —Wild Blue Heron

    Get a pack of 10 from The Herbal Zen on Amazon Handmade for $24.99.

    3. A set of two whip-making pumps that'll turn your go-to foaming cleanser into a marshmallow fluff-like foam so it'll go on more smoothly and feel like you're seriously pampering yourself.

    (Disclaimer: I have bangs and probably will till I die).

    Promising review: "I love these! The quality and price are amazing. I tried Target, Ulta, CosmoProf, and various other stores looking for pearl barrettes, but I either couldn’t find what I was looking for or didn’t want to pay $15 for a single clip. This set came with so many pretty, trendy, wearable styles! I will say, the barrette-style clips are larger than average, but I really liked that about them. They photograph so well. Buy them!!" —Stella

    Get a set of 20 from Amazon for $9.29.

    5. A super sweet and inspirational mirror sticker you'll be so happy to see as you get your gorgeous self ready in every morning. Two bucks is a small price to pay for a guaranteed daily compliment!

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    7. An ingenious champagne stopper that'll allow you to pour yourself a glass on any random day — just because you deserve it!!!! — without worrying about wasting the whole bottle. It doesn't just reseal your precious champs, but also increases the pressure inside to preserve the bubbles. It even features a dial to help you mark the date you opened it on the top of the stopper!

    It's dishwasher safe!

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Maitland Quitmeyer swears by hers. She says: "I love bubbles — champs, cava, prosecco, sparkling rose — they just know how to bring the party! But no one likes when sparkling wine goes flat, or you feel like you can't just have one or two glasses without ruining the whole bottle. So I went on Amazon and found the best champagne stopper I could find and immediately hit 'add to cart.' What a great purchase! This little bb is so easy to use — just pop it on top of the bottle, push the metal sides in so it clamps on, then push the top button several times to vacuum seal and preserve the bubs. Then when you next want a glass, spritz, or mimosa, you'll hear that same *POP* you heard when first taking out the cork — and the effervescence you so crave will be fully intact. Plus, you can confidently store your leftover bottle on its side in your fridge; I've had zero leakage problems with this thus far!" Check out her full review here (#1).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97+ (available in two colors).

    8. A badass Savage X Fenty balconette bra and bikini undies combo complete with pretty lace, edgy plaid, and glam safety pin and insect charms that'll make you feel oh-so-confident when you have 'em on, whether they're hidden under your regular clothes or being shown off in the bedroom.

    Promising review: "Amazing. I had never tried chili oil prior to buying this incredible product, and it is much more than a chili oil. It's a low-heat condiment that is fabulous on many things. From crackers with a sharp cheddar cheese spread to topping potatoes of any kind, as well as topping chicken, shrimp, and steak. It's quite addicting and I wish I could buy a case at a time. If you desire more heat, add a touch of cayenne pepper. You won't be sorry. This I promise." —Boomer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.07.

    10. A glam robe so you'll feel posh even when you're just chilling on your couch bingeing Bridgerton yet again and thinking of all the things you'd like to do in a library. 👀

    It's also got pockets for snacks. 😁

    Promising review: "This product deserves the highest possible rating! Honestly, I feel like I paid $100 at Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus — it’s so well-made, the fabric is very soft, and the robe fits so well. There are no loose threads or any imperfections whatsoever. The color is breathtaking! Seriously, just WOW!!!" —Natalia Gucciardo

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and in 22 colors).

    11. A just plain delightful 3D-printed foam soap dispenser attachment to turn the soap you pump into a magical Disney shape, so you can feel like you truly live in the House of Mouse. A foolproof way to upgrade your day-to-day? If something in your life can be Disney-themed, make it Disney-themed.

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this product!! Is it necessary? No. Did it, and does it, bring me endless amounts of joy? Absolutely!! I was squealing like a child the first time I used it. I will be ordering more for my family who are also Disney obsessed. It makes me smile every single time I use it. Thank you for such a fun and well-made product!" —Chisten Overton

    Promising review: "These masks are great! They don’t dry up while in use (like some other masks I’ve gotten on Amazon), and they’re cute for grown-ups and kids. I can see a difference in skin immediately after use." —Stay Trippy

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $11.55 (available in nine combinations).

    13. An adorbs cotton swab or toothpick holder shaped like a lil' succulent pal that's far more stylish and smile-inducing than keeping said items in their bulky cardboard boxes.

    Promising review: "Did I absolutely need this? No. Does it make me ridiculously happy? Yes! It's so cute. You can remove a layer or two of the 'leaves' to make more room. I have two-thirds on right now to hold Q-tips. Brings a smile to my face every time I stand at my sink." —amester26

    Get it from Amazon for $7.28+ (available in four colors).

    14. A mouthwatering box of organic spices and seasonings to take your home-cooked meals and grill creations up a notch. They'd make a great gift too!

    You can choose from a variety of combos, from special sea salts to BBQ flavors. For example, the grilling-themed box on the right includes "Grill Master" burger seasoning, "Smokey Southwest," "Citrus Pepper," "Fresh Bay," and "Peppered Habenero." They're from a small, family-owned business based in Jacksonville, Florida, that donates a meal to a child in need for each box sold!

    Promising review: "Wowza! I just had a dinner party and tried the Fresh Bay on tilapia. It was a HUGE hit! The flavor was, hands down, the tastiest spice on fish I have ever tried. Even my fussy teen loved it. Only a very light sprinkling of Fresh Bay was needed to elicit big flavor and a beautiful bronze color, so that little bottle will go a long way. Fabulous new find — I highly recommend! Can't wait to try the others!" —Cheryl S.

    Get a box of five from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six flavor combinations).

    15. A super personal birthdate candle with a label featuring an in-depth horoscope, character reading, and tarot cards and a scent customized just for your birthday. With a burn time of 60–80 hours, you'll be able to enjoy it as a special addition to many cozy nights to come.

    Birthdate Co

    It's from an Asian-owned small business!

    Promising review: "Out of luck this popped up for me on TikTok right when I was looking for a present for my best friend — and let me tell you it's the best present I have ever gotten her!!!! She loves it so much and every time she tells me it's literally her favorite scent in the whole world I get so happy! She's a very specific person with her scents haha, so I was a little nervous to get it, but from the description and having trust in the horoscopes, I knew they'd know what was perfect. So happy I got it and I can't wait to order more for my loved ones!! The horoscope was also on point!!" —Camila D.

    Get it from Birthdate Co. for $38 (available in 366 days — yes, including Leap Day!).

    16. And an elegant rose gold wick trimmer for anyone who lights candles regularly and wants to get the most use out of their faves (all while feeling fancy, of course).

    Promising review: "I never thought of getting a wick trimmer since I always thought using regular scissors would be enough. But as my candles started wearing down and my wicks got lower and lower into the jar, I realized regular scissors wouldn't be able to reach the wick considering they can't bend into the jar. I decided to invest in a wick trimmer since I didn't plan on stopping lighting candles. This wick trimmer does the job! The length and angle work well for reaching the wick when it gets to the bottom and it's able to snip with ease! Plus the rose gold color makes it cute and aesthetic on my desk." —erikkaa

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    17. A cool and convenient foot scrubber mat that's the exfoliating, tootsie-cleaning solution you've been looking for your whole showering life. It attaches to the side or floor of your tub (or shower) with suction cups so you can easily get your nasty feet clean without losing your balance and while giving them a good pampering, too.

    Reviewers with limited mobility also swear by it to save them from having to bend over to clean their feet!

    Promising review: "I love this foot scrubber! The soles of my feet were dry and itchy before and after I used the scrubber I didn't feel the itchiness anymore. Other than cleansing the soles of my feet, it exfoliates. You can’t go wrong buying this! Try it yourself!" —Minerva

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four colors).

    18. One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book, which'll motivate even the busiest people to take some time to reflect and journal each day. Plus, once you use it for a full year, you'll be treated to a glance back in time from that day last year every time you go to add a new entry.

    The journal with a ribbon bookmark
    The journal opened to two September date pages, each with five multi-lined sections labeled with
    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    Over 2,000 reviewers love it and so do I! Each page is dated and has five small spaces and room to fill in the year for each one, so you can keep a short record every day for five years and compare what you wrote over time. I adore this and it's the first thing that's actually gotten me to journal every day. I usually write more of a blurb than a sentence, but it literally takes me two minutes or less right before bed. I started it at the end of 2019 and have kept up with it; I'm now at the point where I get to go back and read two previous entries for each date, which is a really interesting, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet trip down Memory Lane each night.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.16 or Bookshop (to support local booksellers) for $15.59.

    19. Cool quill-like pens so you can channel your inner Hermione every time you need to jot something down. It'll help a teeeeeeny bit with your lingering bitterness over never receiving your Hogwarts letter.

    The owl definitely just got lost or something.

    Promising review: "I purchased these pens to give my co-workers for Valentine’s Day. I wasn’t expecting much because of the price and thought they would be more of a novelty item. However, they are very decent pens. They write very smoothly, but the ink flow isn’t so much that it bleeds through paper. It will smear if touched immediately, but dries within 4–5 seconds." —KCinOK

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $10.99.

    20. A super luxe expandable wooden bath caddy here to hold your phone, tablet, book, beverages, candles, snacks, and whatever else you need to turn your tub into a truly heavenly place you'll never want to leave and every bath into an *event*.

    Promising review: "Take your baths to the next level! I started doing self-care Sundays and so I bought this! Super cute and has a waterproof coating on it. Comes with slip-resistant stickers so it doesn’t slip off, which is awesome!! For $30 this is great!!!" —rhiannon

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in four colors).

    21. Brooklyn Botany's amazingly affordable brown sugar scrub that smells sweet but is tough on dry, dead skin and acne and costs about a tenth as much as a spa day.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The holy grail of face and body scrubs. Oh my God this is the scrub of all scrubs! I absolutely love how soft this leaves my body and the scent is simply delicious. I use a spatula and put some on my hands, rub my hands together, and then I rub this scrub all over my body. I’ve use it on my face as well and it leaves me with a soft and glowing complexion. It’s gentle yet does a great job at removing dead skin cells. If you’re in the market for a face and body scrub that’s made of amazing ingredients like glycolic acid and moisturizes your skin and leaves it glowing, then this is it." —Jatsbeauty

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. An LED-lit jewelry storage mirror to upgrade your getting-ready game. It can be mounted or hung (at three adjustable heights!) over your door to give you a chic and compact accessorizing space all in one piece. Just pop on a necklace, close the mirrored door to make sure it works with your outfit, and go!

    I have a similar, freestanding one of these I got from Pottery Barn Teen years ago and it's genuinely one of my favorite pieces of furniture in my apartment.

    Promising review: "This is probably the best purchase I have ever made on Amazon. This is very well-made — like, incredibly well-made. It stores soo much stuff!!! My daughter loved it and now I am eyeing one for myself. My daughter had jewelry and trinkets everywhere in her room. This put everything neatly in one space. It's elegant. Mirror + jewelry holder = game changer. Highly recommend." —Linnette
