    1. Outdoor string lights to turn your backyard into the ultimate oasis. They'll transform the look of your space and illuminate it for all future BBQs and patio chill sessions.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These transformed my backyard! I bought two 50-foot strands and have them stretched across two decent-sized patio areas. The light is gorgeous and romantic, and bright enough to not need other lights at night. We put them up in early October to enjoy the last bit of fall and they have survived through rain and frost so far without breaking. The glass is very thin, but it's also very light, so they seem to hold up pretty well. I will probably order more!" β€”Shannon H.

    Get them from Amazon for $34.95+ (available in three string colors).

    2. A squeegee broom with a 100% natural rubber brush that picks up pet hair like a magnet. It works on carpets, rugs, hardwood, and linoleum, so your pet's shedding won't take over your entire home.

    The built in squeegee edge can also be used to clean windows, showers, and windshields. Use it to clean up liquid spills on tile, concrete, or any hardwood surface too. It's basically a must-have to keep your floors shining.

    Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and I found this product on a whim one day. I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." β€”Nick V.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    3. A teeth-whitening pen to help you remove stains on your teeth caused by coffee, soda, smoking, and more. Simply twist the bottom of the pen, apply using the soft brush tip, and let it sit for less than a minute. Many reviewers noticed a major difference after only two uses!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is so easy to use and it is very effective. The brush applicator allows for precise placement and a little goes a long way. I noticed significant whitening after two applications and no gum irritation. If you're new to this please follow their instructions. This isn't the highest concentration of peroxide but it will absolutely get your teeth white without causing irritated gums and sensitive teeth if used according to the instructions. I will buy again!" β€”R. Burgess

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.99.

    4. A pack of Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes that'll infuse fertilizer and micronutrients into your plants after they may have been a bit neglected during the winter. Now your indoors can look as green and happy as the outdoors.

    amazon.com

    Each spike can be used for 30–60 days, depending on the season. The reviewer pics above are all of the same plant β€” the far left photo shows the plant in its droopy, original state, the middle photo is a slightly perkier plant just 10 days later, and the right photo shows the happy, lifted, and healthy result after three weeks!

    Promising review: "I always kill my plants but I decided to try again. I just bought five houseplants, and three of them were marked down because they were looking pretty puny. Since I tend to kill them anyway, I figured I would give them a try and save some money. I put one of these spikes in each plant and they all looked so much healthier and happier after just a couple days. I also added one spike to the only houseplant that I've had for years without killing (I was beginning to think it was artificial), and the leaves looked healthier almost immediately. I'm very happy with this product, and it was at a great price." β€”victoria

    Get 24 spikes from Amazon for $2.98 (available in four quantities).

    5. A clear bubble umbrella so rainy days don't have to kill your vibe and distract from your cute outfit.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this umbrella! It rains all the time here in the Pacific Northwest, but I didn't want to stop my daily walks outside β€” this baby came to the rescue. It's not too heavy to carry, looks super cute, is VERY protective of the elements, and you can see through it, so it doesn't feel like as much of a barrier as other umbrellas. The only downside is that the long part is not collapsible, but I don't mind because I keep this at home when not in use. Highly recommend for outdoor walks." β€”Nina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.50 (available in two designs and a pack of two).

    6. 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.

    Hands applying some of the sunscreen from the tube
    Target

    Black Girl Sunscreen is a Black woman-owned business that was founded in Miami in 2016. The brand's products are cruelty-free and formulated without parabens or other harmful chemicals.

    Promising review: "I know as women of color we worry about that ashy/white cast type of look when we put on sunscreen or looking oily, but this sunscreen doesn’t cause either one of those things to happen. It blends into the skin very well immediately, it doesn’t have that sterling sunscreen smell and a little goes a very long way. I highly recommend!" β€”Kayla

    Get it from Target for $15.99 or Black Girl Sunscreen for $18.99.

    7. A pair of high-waisted biker shorts (which have pockets!!) that are perfect for everything from workouts on warm days to lounging around the house to avoiding thigh chafing under all those cute dresses you've been *finally* pulling out the back of your closet.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are lifesavers. The charcoal are cotton and soooooo comfy for summertime. I have multiple pairs of each color and swear by them. They are great for the gym and just wearing under dresses and skirts. They also provide just enough pressure for my cramps that I can function!!" β€”MissLee

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 42 color/length options).

    8. Or a pair of lace thigh bands that'll protect your thighs from the pains of chafing when you want to wear a skirt and not have painful welts form on your inner thighs.

    reviewer wearing the anti-chafing bands in black lace
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Ladies, we can finally toss the deodorant...these things work! I was hella skeptical because my thighs are resistant to any sort of chub rub defense. I wore them while walking at least five hours at a music festival and they stayed put without me ever needing to adjust them! I couldn't believe it! My delicate inner thigh skin was preserved; not a chub-rub in sight and they're so feminine and romantic-looking that I didn't even care if someone caught a peek at that beautiful lace. Way sexier than my usual biker shorts. Love that I can wear dresses all day now without worrying about my thighs overheating." β€”OceanHips

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95 (available in sizes S–3XL and 17 colors).

    9. An aluminum-free coconut deodorant for anyone (like me) who immediately starts to drip sweat the minute the sun comes out, but wants to try something more natural than what they've been using. This nontoxic option is made with a blend of coconut water, coconut oil, and sage oil to sooth sensitive pits.

    Kopari

    Kopari notes that when switching to a natural deodorant you may experience a little bit more sweat and stink than normal for the first couple weeks due to your body adjusting and detoxing.

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this deodorant!!! Works great, safe to use, smells amazing, and even my 10-year-old daughter loves it!!!" β€”Nicole S.

    Get it from Kopari for $14 (available in seven scents).

    10. A bug bite suction tool that'll be super useful to carry around as the weather gets warmer and the bugs start swarming. It works to remove insect venom, saliva, and other irritants that get left under the skin using a small suction.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Rebecca O'Connell owns one of these and notes that while it doesn't completely get rid of your bites, it does put a halt to the itching. It works with mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, chiggers, and sea lice! Note that some reviewers say the suction can be really strong, so try to use it gently; and the company doesn't recommend using it on your neck or face, because it can cause bruising there. (Read the full directions before using it!)

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times β€” so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) β€” immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing, but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" β€”Rebecca

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two colors).

    11. A portable campfire so you can enjoy an evening of s'mores even if you're nowhere near a fire pit. Just place the disc on a nonflammable surface, light it with a match, and use the lid to put out the flame. It can burn for over three hours!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's made from recycled soy wax and recycled paper briquettes to minimize its environmental impact. You can keep lighting and re-lighting it until all the briquettes are burned up.

    Promising review: "If you don't have space or time for a backyard fire pit, this is the perfect solution! We use this on our back deck. The flame gets about 12 inches high but is contained in the can. When we're done, we just put the lid on. It lasts for hours and multiple nights of burning. I've ordered as gifts, given as gifts and bought three for our use. Just love this product. It's soy so it's not toxic. Highly recommend!" β€”J. Bonfilio

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    12. A chic and super durable stainless-steel water bottle that'll help remind you to stay hydrated while spending more time outdoors. It's so cute, you'll want to bring it everywhere.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I try to drink two liters of water a day, and it's surprisingly hard to find a liter water bottle. Well, not only is this a liter, but it also comes with two heads that are really great and seal well. The best part is, I'll never lose it because everywhere I go people say, 'Your water bottle is huge. Why would you buy something that big? It's ridiculous.' Listen Karen, I'm so hydrated that I've ascended to a higher plane of existence, so step the heck down. So yeah 5 stars I guess." β€”Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in two sizes and 11 colors/styles, as well as packs of two).

These adorable scrunchies make throwing my hair up in a messy bun so much more fun. The satin ones are especially great for being gentle on your hair. You can also find the organza rainbow scrunchie I'm wearing in the above photo or the cotton cow print on their site as well.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for some new spring/summer sandals and I just received these and they are so incredibly comfortable and super cute! I think I will order them in more colors. The width is perfect on me. I tend to have a wider foot, but not that wide. I ordered a 7.5 and it fits perfectly and I usually wear 7.5 in most shoes/sandals. The color is fabulous too! I ordered gray." β€”Magical Everyday

    Get it from Amazon for $15.56+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in 83 colors/prints).

    Promising review: "I don’t even know where to start! I use this on my floors, my granite countertops, glass stove top, I put a little in my laundry, on my dining room table, I even use a little to wet dust with. I literally clean even when I don’t have to just so I can smell its fragrance. I love that the scent on my laundry lasts. I used the Frankincense & Myrrh cleaner on my bedsheets and duvet cover and the scent lasted quite some time. My home smells so fresh and airy. I will be ordering again soon." β€”Keyana

    Get it from Good Vibes for $10 (available in two sizes and seven scents, including unscented).

    19. A microfiber dusting glove so you can eliminate the dust that's been collecting on your blinds and shelves and causing you to sneeze every five minutes.

    Promising review: "Do you hate having to dust around things? I know I do. This glove is ideal β€” you can just wipe away dust while easily maneuvering around odds and ends in your way.

Best of all: the first one I have found in my entire adult life (55!) that isn't made with extra wide shoulders, so there is no weird shoulder stick out as with every other one I've tried. Very feminine looking, while still being sort of plain and utilitarian. Love it." β€”Amazon Customer

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I've tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I'd tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth." β€”Steve

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I bought this for a gift for my husband who drinks iced coffee all year long. He says it makes such a smooth-tasting and strong iced coffee. He gets two drinks out of each batch that he makes. It's easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher. It's durable β€” I know as I'm clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!" β€”rnnichole

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    I am big on earrings, I always feel so much more put-together when I'm wearing some. And when I came across these ~gems~ I had to have them. I love that they're iridescent, so they match almost any top. The pinks, blues, and yellows are perfect for spring and obviously the little white flowers just bring home the whole springtime aesthetic. These are also really lightweight so they don't bother me throughout the day. And the fact that the metal structure is rose gold is the cherry on top for me, a basic millennial.

    Promising review: "Super adorable! I love them and so glad to have something to make my outfits pop. A little shine never hurts anyone, especially in the current pandemic.

    Get them from Amazon for $28.

    Get it from Novogratz for $299 (available in two upholstery colors).

    29. A pair of round sunnies that'll add the perfect finishing touch to all your 'fits. The fact that they'll also block the sun from your eyes is just a bonus.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It’s pretty hard for me to find round glasses that fit my larger face without making me look like I’m part of the three blind mice, but these were perfect! I think these would work really well with smaller faces, too. They're a great pair of everyday glasses. The case is super sturdy and zips as well. It comes with a cloth to clean the lens. A lot of more expensive brands have flimsy cases. The polarization is great because it doesn’t distort color and reduces glare making it easier on your eyes, but iPhones also have this so together, it’ll make your screen look pretty weird. Besides that, amazing glasses" β€”Ange

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in six colors).

    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 β€” what more could you ask for?" β€”tahlia pankau

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

    Kit includes: Hemp twine, embroidery thread, glue sticks (does not include hot glue gun), two needles, needle threader, thimble, and tacks

    Promising review: "This is a great kit! The instructions are very detailed and include pictures for each step. The felt is already cut! They include everything you'll need except a glue gun (small) and a dowel rod to roll the petals. I used a wooden skewer. I was really impressed. The felt is thin and stiff, which I think works well. I'm really happy with this kit and may order another one! I'm using it to decorate my daughter's first birthday party." β€”Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    Amazon

    BuzzFeed editor Rebecca O'Connell has and loves this product. She said:

    "This is one of those products where I see the commercial and I'm like, 'YEAH RIGHT!' These inflatable chairs just seem too easy. You just spin in a circle with them and suddenly you have a magically inflated chair? Seems unlikely. But now that I've tried them, I can confirm that they're (almost) that easy. It does take a couple of tries to get the hang of it, but pretty much anyone can figure it out in five to ten minutes. Basically, it comes with two compartments that you need to fill with air by twirling in a tight circle. You switch compartments while spinning and then quickly roll the it up before the air escapes. Once you master the technique, you're in squishy, inflatable heaven."

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in two colors).

    36. A tube of Glossier's Balm Dotcom to soften and repair chapped lips with a combination of castor oil, beeswax, and lanolin, while leaving the perfect hint of color and/or shine (depending on which flavor you go with).

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I use this on my lips once in the morning and once at night and that's it! My lips are baby soft the entire rest of the day and I haven't had any issues with chapped lips since I started using it! You only need a small amount too which is so nice. I love the mint one and will definitely buy again and try other flavors." β€”Gretchen

    Get it from Glossier for $12 (available in eight flavors).

    37. A pair of quilted rainboots that are just as cute as they are practical. No more suffering while walking around in wet, soggy socks on rainy days.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these boots for a trip to London and Dublin. Knowing there would be lots of rain, I needed something to keep my feet dry. I was concerned about the comfort of wearing a rain boot. These boots did not disappoint. They were actually so much more comfortable than I could have imagined. They didn’t rub like some of the booties do. We walked 10 miles a day, right out to package. No blisters or discomfort. I would recommend them to anyone. You must wear socks with them, so plan for sizing accordingly. I logged 40k steps in these boots and now use them as daily barn boots. Great price and great product, cute too." β€”Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes for a trip to Alaska where I knew that it would be rainy and wet. They were perfect. My feet stayed dry and when they got dirty I was just able to wipe them clean ... I've even worn them to football games where sometimes people spill beverages and my shoes were able to stay dry and again I just had to wipe them clean. Plus they look cute." β€”Yvonne R.

    40. 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." β€”Jewelshine

    Get it from Filtrete on Amazon for $117.94 (comes with two replacement filters).

    41. A simple gel face cleanser, because it's gentle, clean, eye-safe, and soap-free. It's infused with rosewater and mint, that leaves your skin feeling refreshed and nourished.

    Versed

    Promising review: "This is a simple cleanser, but it does everything I need a simple cleanser to do. It cleanses without stripping the skin, it doesn't leave any residue, and it is eye-safe. It is slightly peppermint-y, but it doesn't sting my skin or eyes, which is something I was definitely worried about at the beginning. Because it is so gentle, I typically use this as a second cleanse or my cleanser in the morning. Overall, it is such a great cleanser and I enjoy having it in my routine." β€”MOREBEVERLYCHERIE

    Get it from Versed for $12.99.

    42. A printed midi skirt and tank set you can quickly throw on with some sandals or sneakers and just know that you look bomb. It's comfy, trendy, and perfect for sunny days β€” which is my fave combination.

    I love a matching set because it takes most of the work out of putting an outfit together. And this one is such a great deal! I love how comfy and easy it is to wear. I was concerned about it being see-through, but it wasn't! It has a stretchy waist and a cute tie detail in the front of the skirt. For spring days, I just throw a denim jacket over it. And, of course, I plan to wear it all summer as well. I would 100% buy more colors in this β€” and there are so many to choose from!

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this! I want to order a few more in different colors! It’s stylish, dress it up or wear it casual! I got lots of compliments. Very comfortable and soft. Moves nicely with the body! Very cool looking top!" β€”Jules
