    1. 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?

    2. A keychain-friendly car escape tool to up your emergency-preparedness game. This tiny miracle has both a seatbelt cutter and a window breaker to get you to safety ASAP.

    3. An ingenious blind cleaner brush that'll make cleaning those hard-to-reach crevices way easier. After all, letting all that dust sit there just because blinds are hard to clean would be downright (window)sill-y.

    4. The BuzzFeed Tasty Dessert cookbook filled with 75 recipes to help you create the same kinds of mouthwatering sweets you see on your feed even if you're a total baking beginner. Something's telling me all your friends are gonna want to hang out at your place from now on.

    5. A cool personal library kit so your friends will never "forget" to return the books they borrow ever again and your collection of favorite tomes will look so much more official.

    6. Go-with-everything rhinestone earrings that'll instantly make a sweater and jeans look all ~fashun~ and make you look like you splurged on major bling.

    7. A sleek, stackable toiletry jar to make your bathroom counter look as polished as a fancy salon. Fine, I admit it, my current ripped-box-of-Q-tips storage situation is not cute.

    8. Biodegradable and organic hair ties you can feel way better about than the normal elastics you currently have slapped on your wrist.

    9. A LOL-worthy ice cream cozy, aka the product you never knew you needed. Because getting freezing hands can completely ruin the magic of devouring a pint of Ben & Jerry's while rewatching Queer Eye.

    10. An efficient sushi-making tool that couldn't be easier — you just load it with rice and the filling of your choice, close it up, and shoot out a roll that's ready to be wrapped and cut into maki. If you're tired of your meal prep being limited boring salads and pasta, this'll rock (and ~roll~) your world.

    11. A set of adorbs owl planters to add a distinguished sense of wisdom to your space, and to prove to your always-dying plants that you truly ~give a hoot~ about them.

    12. A handy book stand that over 1,000 reviewers swear by for keeping textbooks, tablets, cookbooks, and notes (*extremely Jesse McCartney voice*) right where you want them.

    13. Genius pant waist extenders perfect for making those old jeans that are just a little too tight comfy again or making your trousers work during early pregnancy or after a medical procedure, without having to buy a new pair.

    14. OPI ProSpa Nail & Cuticle Oil to banish the cracking cuticles that, up until this point, you'd just accepted as a fact of winter.

    15. A chain-detail, faux-croc clutch, which'll give all your upcoming night out looks a badass finishing touch that only looks expensive.

    16. A tube of hair finishing cream to tame flyaways and get an updo so perfect that Audrey Hepburn herself would be shook.

    17. Miraculous NYX glitter primer so you can actually rock a glam makeup look without shedding glitter all day or having your look be ruined by the time you leave the dance floor.

    18. Athletic ankle socks that aren't just regular socks, they're upgraded socks. They're cushioned and ventilated to make your workouts more comfortable — because you don't need sweaty feet on top of your spin instructor yelling at you.

    19. A gorgeous hand lettering workbook here to teach you how to DIY all kinds of cool fonts for signs, cards, or just something to brag about to your coworkers.

    20. The Fenty Beauty Pro Kiss’r Lip-Loving Scrubstick, a cruelty-free exfoliator in a lipstick shape so you can pamper your pout even on the go.

    21. Fun climber-shaped wall hooks to make your closet or doorway look like a modern art installation (and actually motivate you to hang up your stuff instead of tossing it on a chair like usual).

    22. And a must-have sticker for the new year, because the upgrade we all really need in 2020 is a new president.
