3. A pair of super soft high-waisted undies, because who needs pants when you could spend your day at home in these!
4. A hypoallergenic microfiber bed sheet set that comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases to give your bed that 5-star hotel feel.
5. And a set of bedsheet fasteners, because no one likes to wake up in the morning and realize their entire fitted sheet is now bunched up in the corner of their bed.
6. A TubShroom to prevent annoying blockage. Just place it in your drain and let it catch all of your hair before it gets caught in the pipes.

12. A scalp massager that can help with blood flow and assist in removing any product residue that may be hiding on your scalp.
13. A Rapid Slicer tool to make food prep wayyyy faster — it helps to hold all those awkwardly shaped foods in place (like tomatoes, grapes, etc.) so you can swiftly chop 'em up.
Rapid Slicer is a small business founded by couple Rob and Cindy Fox.
Promising review: "I love this slicer! I rarely write reviews, but this literally changed my life. I have fibromyalgia and have trouble gripping things. I also have a host of tiny scars on my hands from cutting myself instead of the vegetables. I am stunned by how easy this is to use, and the protection it gives my hands! And it's low-tech! And it cleans easily! I'm still having trouble believing that a $13 product is doing so much to make my life easier and more painless." —Theresa
Get it from The Grommet for $12.95.
14. A foot file so you can scrape off the dead skin and callouses to make your feet soft and smooth again.
15. A tube of Black Girl Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to use daily that'll protect skin from the sun and provide moisture, without the annoying white residue that is usually left behind.
16. A cult-favorite Aztec Secret Indian healing mask made with 100% calcium bentonite clay that'll work magic to deep clean your pores and help fight acne and blemishes. Not only do people love it to treat their face, but customers have also found success using it on their hair, on their feet, and in the bath! We stan versatility.
17. A popular Always Pan that'll look nice and ~aesthetic~ in your kitchen, help you cook TONS of yummy meals, and be much easier to clean than your old, worn pots and pans. And speaking of which, this baby was designed to replace eight (!!!) traditional pieces of cookware. An icon.
Not only is this pan extremely pretty, it's also versatile! I am far from a chef (pasta is pretty much my go-to), but all of the different functions of this encourages me to try more things. And my favorite feature is probably how easy it is to clean! Whether I'm cooking eggs, chicken, veggies, or whatever, the cleanup is always quick and easy. I never have to leave it to soak for hours or struggle to scrape food off of it. It just wipes clean with a sponge every time! And for someone who doesn't have a dishwasher, an easy after-dinner cleanup means a lot to me. Most of my other pots and pans are old and cheap, but now that I have this I hardly need to use anything else.
Our Place is a POC-owned business based in Los Angeles. All of their boxes are packaged with biodegradable and recyclable materials, and the Always Pan is made in a female-owned factory in China.
Promising review: "This is by far the best pan I have ever purchased. I have been looking for a good skillet but within a year it's in the trash. Not only is this pan easy to clean, it's a nonstick pan, and you can even use it to steam vegetables. I leave it on my stove top. It maybe pricey but it's worth every penny." —Margaret M.
Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in eight colors).

Promising review: "I've always wanted a photography bag to put all my gear that doesn't look like the regular bulky photography bag. This is it! The Runner is discreet, super light and I can fit my X-T3 camera with a lens on, two additional lens and my compact X100F. But the most important feature to me is the laptop sleeve where I can put my 16" Macbook Pro. Great quality bag with durable materials. Love it." —Lauriane M.
Get it from Brevite for $129 (available in 10 colors).
35. A Burst Sonic electric toothbrush to get that smile shining brighter than ever before, without making your hand cramp from all the scrubbing.

It has a two minute timer that even notifies you every 30 seconds so you know when to move to another section of your mouth. Plus, it has a one-month battery life! The toothbrush comes with a USB wall adapter, USB charging base, a travel case, and every 90 days you will be billed $7 for a replacement brush head (you can cancel any time).
Promising review: "My teeth have never felt so clean from just a sonic oral care toothbrush. I’ve been using this toothbrush for a few weeks now and I could already see a huge difference. My teeth are visibly whiter. I’d recommend Burst to anyone. My teeth feel like I just went to the dentist for a cleaning!" —Tori
Get it from Burst Oral Care for $69.99+ (originally $89.98+; available in three colors).
36. An air purifier with a true HEPA filter designed to help capture 99.97% of airborne particles from your room. 😱 Once it sucks up that pet dander, lint, dust, and more, it'll be a (literal) ~breath of fresh air.~
The filter should be replaced every six months.
Promising review: "We wanted a HEPA filter to reduce allergens in our home. Decided to try the 3M model as we use their HVAC filters. Really happy with this unit. It has three speeds and cleans the air in a room pretty fast. The lowest speed produces a 'white noise' that's quiet enough to use at night while sleeping. It's fairly large and has some heft to it, so it's not cheap and flimsy." —Jewelshine
Get it from Filtrete on Amazon for $143.78 (comes with two replacement filters).

Promising review: "This was a first time try for me. I LOVED IT. I am 30 now and i started getting hormonal acne. I tried everything, creams, different face washes, treatments, etc. This has helped so much. First time use, I noticed a difference. The red bumpy hormonal acne was starting to calm down. I kept using it and it kept making my skin smoother and finally the other treatments were able to work. I really recommend this product for skin renewal and acne. Glossier products are fairly priced and the shipping came on time. HOLY grail product found!" —Helena K.

Not gonna lie, I wish my sink was on the same wall so I could do the warm water option but it is super effective and definitely wakes you up! I believe this is the best way to keep things happily clean and, coupled with my Squatty Potty, I think this is going to be the year of the happy BM!" —Natalie D.
