    1. A roll-on headache and migraine relief stick, which I haven't stopped recommending since I first tried — and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.

    Katy Herman/BuzzFeed, Yi Yang/BuzzFeed

    I started using this magical product (which is made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender essential oils) last year and since then have told approximately 1,089,642 people about it. I keep one in my purse and one on my dresser, and I reorder before I'm actually close to running out. While it won't kill a major migraine on its own, it feels super soothing and cooling. If I end up taking ibuprofen for my headache, this is really nice to use while it kicks in. Also, if I just have a slight headache or just the beginnings of one, a few swipes of this (lightly on my temples and forehead and as heavily as I want on my neck) can actually knock it out or delay it getting worse. It's so great to help me get through my busy workdays and social activities, and I really wish I'd had it during high school and college to help me get through the day then! Read my full review here.

    Promising review: "After reading an article on BuzzFeed that touted this product, I bought one for my boyfriend who suffers from awful, frequent headaches. It WORKS. Not only does he swear by it, he has purchased them for his mom and several friends. FANTASTIC." —SarahElizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    2. A tube of hair finishing cream that'll tame flyaways and give you an updo so perfect, you'll have to send your friends the link just to prove you're not Audrey Hepburn reincarnated.


    Promising review: "I love this! i have a ton of new hair growth and it gets annoying around my face when I pull my hair back. I hate using hairspray to keep those suckers in place, because then it gets all hard and looks gross in my opinion. My friend told me about this product and wow, I'm so glad she did. The brush is a good size (not super small like mascara, which is what I was expecting). It works wonderfully and doesn't give you that wet look. It looks nice and sleek and it even stayed put when i was driving with the windows open. I feel so much better about myself using this. Sometimes it's the little things that make you feel pretty!" —AJ Brown

    Get from Amazon for $11.88.

    3. DressWeights, livesaving little weights that adhere to your hem to prevent a Marilyn Monroe moment. You'll want to share them with every dress-wearing human you know come wedding (and spring dress, and BBQ, and just general no-tights-but-plenty-of-wind) season!


    The adhesive is strong but removable, so they can be used again and again!

    Promising review: "These are, hands down, a complete lifesaver. I recently attended a multi-day conference event, where wardrobe malfunctions weren't an option. Add in mid-Atlantic summer breezes and skirts and well, you have a potential disaster on your hands, right? NO. These babies will keep your hemlines down where they belong, and they work hard without being cumbersome. They're lightweight but dense, can easily be adjusted or moved without removing the backing, and they come in their own case — what more could you ask for?" —tahlia pankau

    Get a set of four from DressStrong on Etsy for $15.04 or from DressWeights for $15.

    4. Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner, a beeswax and orange oil formula that's basically like a spa treatment for your wood surfaces. You may want to keep this magic stuff a secret, but any frequent visitors to your home will force you to share how you got your surfaces looking brand new overnight.

    In addition to polishing, it adds a protective layer and helps prevent the wood from drying out or fading. Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this polish!

    Promising review: "This product is wonderful and I've recommended it to friends who now like it as well as I do. I've used it on very old furniture and new furniture. It works on everything. The main attribute is it makes wood look healthier. So far, I've used it on 57 items — large and small — and I'm still going. I was concerned it might leave a residue and make things dustier, but it apparently repels dust because I hardly ever have dust on my furniture now. I have used only half of a bottle, but I have more on hand. I wouldn't be without this product." —GoaterBoater

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    5. A heated shiatsu massager pillow that you may need to buy several of just so your friends and family aren't constantly fighting over it.

    It's got straps on the back so you can conveniently fasten it to a chair, plus the heat function is optional and it automatically turns off after 20 minutes for safety.

    Promising review: "Wow! I've had it for an afternoon and I'm in love. I can't afford to keep going for human massages. *This* I can afford. I think I'm going to buy another one tomorrow so my wife and I don't fight over whose turn it is. Update a few days later: Okay, this many be getting out of hand! I purchased a second one for my wife last week (very smart thing to do). Today, she just asked me to buy two more, one for her daughter and her sister. I just placed the order. I'm using mine three of four 20 minute sessions a day. It continues to work great. Seriously, this is a wonderful product. Spread the word!" —Lynn Robert Carter

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    6. A LOL-worthy screaming goat figure for a gag gift sure to remind your BFF that you're the GOAT.


    He also comes with a little book of equally delightful goat facts.

    Promising review: "This is one of those things you don't know you need in your life until you see it. Yes, it may have been a late-night, altered-state kind of purchase that surprised me a bit when it showed up, but it's one of the best things that's ever happened to me. For just a few dollars, you too can receive an informational mini-book full of goat facts to awe and impress your friends as well as a miniature screaming goat. If you're a fan of the screaming goat videos on YouTube, this will be right up your alley. It sounds best when set on a hard surface like a table or desk, so the sound can echo. It's just loud enough for coworkers to ask 'Did y'all just hear a screaming goat?' Yes. Yes you did, Phil. If you've read this far, it's been decided: you need this. This will be there for you longer than that dumb T-shirt you're considering or those supplements you know you're not going to take. This screaming goat will complete you. Better get one for your best friend too, while you're at it." —echobunny

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    7. A miraculous diamond cleaning stick precise enough to clean every last corner of your most prized jewels and get them to shine as bright as Rihanna said they would. And if you offer to share the love and clean your pals' bling? Well, you're a ~gem~.,

    It's got over 2,500 5-star reviews! Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this amazing cleaner.

    Promising review: "This is absolutely amazing! I used this on my 80-year-old engagement ring and my wedding band. It didn't harm my antique ring but got all the dirt and dust out of it. It's so shiny. I haven’t had this cleaned in about four years and it looks brand new. I brought it into work today and used it on my coworkers engagement ring, which she just had cleaned about six months ago, and she said this got it cleaner than when she had it professionally cleaned. I'm going to use this on all my friends' and family's rings, it's amazing! Probably one of the best products I've ever bought." —NYamazonaddict

    Get it from Amazon for $8.78.

    8. A keychain-friendly car escape tool with both a seatbelt cutter and a window breaker to get you to safety ASAP. Your friends may not always take your protective advice, but this is a super easy thing you can get them to buy to help them stay safe.


    Check out this review from an actual firefighter with tips on how to use this tool!

    Promising review: "Just had to use one of these that I keep on my keychain. I was first on the scene of a nasty wrong-way crash. The driver and a passenger were stuck inside the vehicle. The doors could not be easily opened (on the driver side) so I pulled out my keys and used this tool to pop out the window. It instantly caused the tempered glass to shatter and I knocked the excess away with my flashlight before using a knife to cut away at the airbags. The woman survived and it was incredibly comforting for her to see me face to face and know that she had a way out and that she wasn't stuck. We waited for a little and paramedics arrived and were able to give everyone the care they needed. This was a real-life scenario and this product worked. Would absolutely recommend." —Madison

    Get it from Amazon for $5.72+ (available in eight colors).

    9. An absolutely ingenious car dipping sauce holder that'll clip to your vents and hold your precious condiments. Where has this been your whole chicken-nugget-eating life???

    It's designed to be able to hold different sizes of sauce containers depending on whether you position them horizontally or vertically, and it even comes with a removable tray you can squeeze sauce packets into.

    Promising review: "You must buy these if you eat in your car like I do. Best thing ever! Never juggle you dipping sauces again. Great item for the fun and value. My friends are jealous! ;)" —Molly McCullough

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    10. OMG-worthy custom socks with none other than your beloved pooch's face on them that are gonna make you want to take your shoes off to show off your ~dogs~ as often as possible.


    My mom got my cousin these for Christmas and she asked for the link to share with friends!! All you have to do is upload a clear pic of your favorite doggo when you place your order. Also check out more of the cutest socks you can get on Amazon.

    Promising review: "Cannot stress enough how amazing these came out!!! I gave them as a Secret Santa gift to my two friends and they said they're the best gift they’ve ever received. I was a little concerned about the quality of the picture, since it was an iPhone-quality photo off of Facebook, but they came out 10 times better than I had even hoped. 5 stars for sure!!!!" —Amandax054

    Get them from Amazon for $24 (available in sizes small and large and in 10 colors).

    11. A clever microwave popcorn popper that requires zero oil and that may turn your apartment into the number one movie viewing zone for your squad. Those microwave bags at Karen's house could never.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed

    I bought this over a year ago and now I couldn't live without it. I'm a popcorn fanatic, and I used to eat an alarming amount of the kind that comes in microwaveable bags. Apparently those bags are often coated in possibly harmful chemicals, so, well, that was maybe not my best health decision. But I was too lazy to take out a pot and make a batch on the stovetop every time I had a craving for some 'corn (which, tbh, is most nights). Enter this guy, which is made of BPA-free silicone. You just pour unpopped kernels in up to one of the fill markers, add as much butter, salt, or seasoning as you want, put on the lid, and pop it in the microwave for two or three minutes. The popcorn pops perfectly, it tastes great, and it feels less heavy and greasy than the bagged kind. Then you can just pop this thing in the dishwasher to be used again the next night! Plus, it's collapsible so it won't take up too much space on the (rare) occasions when you're not using it. Check out my full review here (#10).

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in eight colors).

    12. The BuzzFeed X Birchbox Splurge-Worthy Beauty Box, a full collection of editor-approved beauty treats from a red lippie to a luxe face mask, so you can test out a bunch of It products all at once. Get ready to become the beauty influencer of your group chat.


    The products inside are worth over $200, but the box only costs a little over a quarter of that! Here's what you get:

    -Glamsquad The Untamed Texturizing Finishing Spray (a volumizing hairspray that won't leave your hair all crunchy)

    -Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Liquid Liner (a smudge-free black eyeliner that even clumsy folks can handle)

    -Glamglow Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask (a fizzy, citrus-scented mask that's way more fun than your current skincare routine)

    Get it from Birchbox for $52 ( Originally $62 — get $10 off with code BUZZFEED).

    13. Sleek and versatile wedge ankle booties that over 1,800 reviewers are already obsessed with. They heard you say you already think you've found perfectly comfortable heeled boots and said "hold my beer.",

    Check out more of the best ankle boots you can get on Amazon.

    Promising review: "My sister recommended these wedges to me for wearing at work since I'm on my feet a lot but still have to have a dressy shoe. My goodness, I could seriously wear these shoes all day long! They are fabulous! It's like wearing nothing at all. They don't squish my toes or the sides of my feet, they are so easy to walk in for the size of those heels, and they don't even rub my ankles like other ankle booties I own. I can wear them with practically anything (even just my skinny jeans for running errands or date nights). I'm a huge fan of these boots, and I'm recommending them to all my friends! If you need a stylish neutral shoe, this is it!" —kacieD

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 12 colors).

    14. Pus-absorbing, pimple-eliminating patches, which I personally use all the time. And every time I take off a particularly effective one? You can bet I want to show all my nearest and dearest the grossly satisfying gunk it's pulled out of my pores.,

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of these patches here.

    Promising review: "Okay, what is this sorcery?? I can't believe I never knew these existed. I seriously felt like a teenager again last weekend. Literally days after talking about how great my skin has been, this giant, painful, bulging zit was starting to form right in the middle of my chin. A week before my cousin's wedding, naturally. It was like it wouldn't stop growing, and spot treatment solution was doing absolutely nothing. It hurt so bad, and I couldn't help trying to pop it, but it refused. Then I heard about these. I placed one on my chin the second they arrived in the mail. After a few hours, I saw the white forming and I was curious and peeled it off. Then I put a fresh one on before bed, and come the next morning...HOLY COW, the entire dot of the patch was now a giant white blob. This zit was no joke. It's amazing how much fluid/pus had to get sucked out. Like I said, this is some magic. The zit completely went away within a day." —Heather R. Weather

    Get a box of 36 from Amazon for $4.07.

    15. A game-changing wine gadget that's a stopper, pourer, aerator, filter, and re-corker all in one and a must-have addition for anyone who drinks wine. It's only $6, so wine not pick up a few extra to share?


    Promising review: "I was visiting my cousin when these came in the mail. He order a dozen of them and gave me one to try. As a big wine drinker I'm always looking for good wine bottle stoppers, but most either leak when tipped on their side or the don't seal tightly, or they make the bottle so high that its harder to store, especially in the fridge. I tried this cork and was in LOVE! It's perfect. It seals tightly, so tightly there's no leaking when a bottle is on its side. It aerates. It's BPA-free, and it's not large and bulky. I ordered two dozen and am sharing them with family and friends!" —Music Mom of 5

    Get it from Amazon for $5.71.

    16. Or some funny and clever Wine Condoms to protect beloved beverages from spills and keep them fresh. Also, these are much more socially acceptable to give to friends as a host gift than regular condoms.


    Unlike stoppers, they fit different sized bottles and won't make the bottles so tall you can't fit them in the fridge. They keep out oxygen to keep your wine tasting its best, and reviewers say you can even reuse them!

    Promising review: "I got these as a gift for a family member who is a wine aficionado, partly for a laugh but also for their great concept. When she opened them, I did get a huge laugh, but once she understood the concept she was amazed. I've received confirmation from her that they work wonders and truly provide an airtight seal. Now all the corks can go in the trash after they come out and a wine condom goes on!!" —Thomas

    Get a box of six from Amazon for $16.97.

    17. Mike's Hot Honey, a chili-infused honey that's good on so many things, it'll steal the show at pretty much any dinner party or potluck. Sorry to Susan's taco casserole.


    Check out BuzzFeed's full review here.

    Promising review: "This mixed-up honey is absolutely fabulous. I gave in and ordered three bottles more after my initial order, because it's really good on everything. And I mean EVERYTHING: soft pretzels, toast, biscuits, waffles, cereal, yogurt, ice cream, and definitely pizza. It gives everything in your kitchen a small kick of sweet heat flavor without burning your mouth up. I've told many of my friends about this magical elixir and they all agree. This is the BEST specialty honey any of us have ever had." —Jeff R. Clow

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    18. A too-adorable-for-words cat cap, which will be the subject of several Snap and Insta stories and also possibly your 2020 Christmas card and your next tattoo, much to your cat's chagrin.,

    Please just do yourself a favor and look at all the review photos.

    Promising review: "Seriously the best purchase I’ve ever made." —shelby robe

    Get one in a random color from Amazon for $6.99.

    19. Glossier Boy Brow, a hypoallergenic, paraben-free brow shaping and filling gel that several of my coworkers LITERALLY never stop talking about.

    Anamaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "The precision that is required to literally draw in an eyebrow is a feat of Da Vinci proportions — and no, I’m not being overdramatic. I have tried to use pencil brow liners and it looked like a 3-year-old drew on my face. But dilemma time: when I put on my foundation, I feel like my eyebrows blend into my skin. So what should a girl who cannot color inside the lines of her brows do? Here’s what I needed: an eyebrow filler that would very lightly enhance my eyebrows (I prefer a natural-looking makeup routine), act like gel for all the unruly hairs that live above my eyes, and have a brusher application that would make the ordeal an easy one. No pencils. Step in Boy Brow, a cult-favorite that is loved by everyone and their Insta-famous mothers. But believe the hype: this magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. One coat was more than enough! My facial caterpillars have never looked better." —AnaMaria Glavan, BuzzFeed Shopping editor (check out her full review here, #5)

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    20. A top-rated box of moisturizing bath bombs in 12 different soothing scents at a price that makes them worthy of the praise "the ~bomb~ dot com."


    They've got over 6,000 5-star reviews, and reviewers say they're great for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "Such great value!! I was so excited to stumble across these. I've loved bath bombs from the first time I tried one, but had resigned to forego them due to the price, which can easily be $3-6 dollars per bomb at a store. Now I can treat myself without feeling guilty! The packaging is adorable and each bomb has its own unique smell and design. I'm definitely planning on using these for gifts in the future, and I've already recommended them to most of my friends." —Abigail

    Get a box of 12 from Amazon for $25.80.

    21. That's What She Said, a cleverly named book full of stunning portraits, inspiring quotes, and fascinating facts about sheroes from Sojourner Truth to Patti Smith to Janet Mock to Malala Yousafzai that you're definitely gonna wanna share with every girlboss in your life.


    I got this for Christmas and can confirm it's gorgeous!!!

    Promising review: "Cheer up. It’s not all bad when there are books like this. This is the most positive, empowering book I’ve seen. So far my daughter, nieces, sisters, sisters-in-law, and friends are getting this. For everything: finishing fourth grade, going on their first solo trip, starting high school, being awesome. I’ve followed the author on Instagram for about a year, and LOVE her art. This is the perfect combination of fabulous art and amazing writing." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+.

    22. A Homesick candle that smells like your home state and will have you encouraging all your back-home besties to take a whiff.


    Promising review: "I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell, but I figured even if he wasn't a fan it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home. I don't know how they did it, but they managed to replicate the smell so well in this candle that it took my boyfriend back home immediately. Definitely worth my money. :)" —Bailey K

    Get it from Amazon for $27.13+ (available in 50 states).

    23. One of CowCow's amazing printed skater dresses, which come in all sorts of wild prints and that reviewers say fit tons of different body types, so there's sure to be one to suit everyone in your squad.,

    Promising review: "I've bought 11 of the skater and sleeveless dresses so far, and they are incredible. I wear a 3X-4X in most brands, but friends told me to go up a size for my large bust. I did that, and the fit is perfect. These dresses look so simple, but the cut is magic. They are incredibly flattering on even the largest end of the plus sizes. I have friends of all shapes, sizes, and heights, and nearly everyone raves about these. The quality is really good. I was wary of the poly/spandex mix, but it's breathable, super comfortable, and soft. I can't get over all the prints. I love alternative looks, and it's so hard for plus sizes to find cute clothes that aren't frumpy, ill-cut, or that end up looking like sacks. These are fun and flattering, and I will be buying more in more styles." —Rachel S Runyan

    Get it in space-themed prints from Amazon for $16.80+ (available in sizes XS-5X and in 42 prints). Find more themes and prints here.

    24. A waterproof notepad so you can record all of your vitally important shower thoughts and those to-dos that you only seem to remember mid-shampoo. The first important task to jot down? Recommending this pad to everyone you know.

    Aqua Notes

    You can use it with any regular pencil, but it includes one that says "No more ideas down the drain!"

    Promising review: "I got these Aqua Notes because I thought it would be something fun for my husband and I to use to leave each other notes in the shower. It's been pretty entertaining to get in the shower and find silly notes and respond. It's little things in life like that that make me happy. I decided I will be getting these for all my friends, because it's unique and fun! As far as the quality, it's great. It's easy to write on with water all over it and it stays where it's put. As you fill out the sheets, you can put them on the shower wall so you can keep them in sight if needed. Fun stuff!" —Crystal Jenkins

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    25. Winky Lux's Matte Lip Velour, aka a possibly perfect, super-pigmented matte lipstick guaranteed to result in compliments and old-school-Barbie-commercial-like queries of "Where'd ya get that??"

    Winky Lux, Katy Herman/BuzzFeed

    I've gotten tons of positive comments on this lippie and it's my absolute fave for several reasons. It's soft, smooth, and not very drying, and it's cruelty-, paraben-, and sulfate-free! The rounded shape of the bullet is MIRACULOUS. I'm talking the kind of lipstick that even clumsy old me can put on perfectly without looking in the mirror. It's the perfect size bullet for my lips, too, and it wears down to form to the curve of your lips, whereas smaller bullets just stay kinda flat. And people, it stays the heck on. I'm not saying it can totally survive multiple meals, but it never claims to. But for a regular lipstick to still look fab after I have a snack and drink out of my water bottle a ton? That's a big win for me. I've even gotten my mom into it! Check out my full review here (#9).

    Get the purple shade above from Winky Lux for $15 and find more colors here.

    26. Unicorn Gold toilet spray, which uses REAL GOLD PARTICLES to kill stink molecules in the air, plus essential oils to coat the water and trap odors in the toilet bowl. Suffice it to say you can think of a few specific friends who really need to be told about this.


    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I initially used it for a trip to London where I was sharing a tiny bathroom with my best friend and her husband in our Airbnb apartment. We all used it and NEVER had to put up with any poop smell at all!! I now use it in my house on the daily and I feel SO spoiled. I don't even know what poop smells like anymore! My fiancé loved it too, and made me get the Squatty Potty stool to go along with it. Pooping has never been so pleasant!" —Leslie B

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two scents and two sizes).

    27. The Squatty Potty, a simple yet revolutionary bathroom stool that may change how you pass *your* stool for the rest of your days, and also may have you sending some VERY TMI texts singing its praises.


    It helps you comfortably assume a squatting posture, which is the prime position for emptying your bowels with ease.

    Promising review: "I love the Squatty Potty and you will too. It works like a charm. You'll wonder how you got along without it all these years. Think of your bowels turning into a laundry chute! That's the best way I can explain it. You will have more time on your hands once you own a Squatty Potty. You go into the bathroom and you're out in seconds, not 10, 15, or 20 minutes as in the past. Business owners should buy these for their bathrooms, because their employees would take less time on bathroom breaks, really! In fact, if the government would invest in these for every bathroom, the legislative process would speed up. You'll be glad you got one, for those from five to 95!" —campromise

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    28. A soft-as-heck plaid blanket scarf you'll probably want everyone you meet to touch, just so they get how wonderful it is. "You? Yes, you! FEEL HOW COZY!"

    Old Navy

    I'm currently cuddled up in this baby, and it's my first day rocking it. Can confirm that the above sentiment is accurate. Plus, it's just so effortlessly chic!

    Get it from Old Navy for $19.97 (available in 10 patterns).

    29. And finally, an iconic plush turkey mask that's made for showing off to all your ~friends~, especially if you want them to tell you how much they love you.


    Get it from Firebox for $27.99 (originally $39.99).
