    1. A roll of reusable double-sided tape that'll come in handy for any DIY project you're planning to do. You can tape carpets or rugs to the floor, so you don't trip, mount picture frames instead of using screws or hooks, or put it under your chairs and sofas to keep them from moving.

    It won't ruin your walls when you're ready to remove it, and if you run it under water, you can reuse it somewhere else.

    "The tape is so strong and durable, it'll pretty much stick to ANYTHING. Just how good is it? Well, I cut off a little bit of tape, and I pasted it on the uneven wallpaper in my apartment. And it stayed there! I placed a picture frame against it and pressed down firmly. The frame didn't even budge if I poked at it. Even better? I could easily remove the tape from my walls, and the wallpaper wasn't damaged at all. Even more amazing? Just rinse the used tape under some water and you can use it again!Asami Togi

    @cuisinart / Via, @cuisinart / Via

    "I love using these because the pop of colour totally adds to the joy of chopping and cooking. Prior to purchasing this set, I’ve always had a mismatched assortment of cutting tools. This was perfect for me because every type of knife was already included, like a slicing knife or a bread knife. Plus there is also a matching blade guard for each one." —Liza Hicks

    6. A flexible phone mount that'll clip to your bed, desk, or breakfast tray, so you don't have to hold up your phone while you watch TV or video chat.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The mount is wide enough to clip onto my headboard, and I can use it on different pieces of furniture in my house, like my desk or shelf. Plus, the holder stretches open really wide, so it'll fit any phone.

    I can rotate the holder from a vertical to a horizontal position and the flexible neck makes it easy to change the position of my phone to any angle. I usually keep it in my bedroom, because I don't have a television and I like to sit in bed and stream videos on my phone. But I've also been using it a lot when I video chat with my sister and best friend play Animal Crossing. We can chat and see each other but my hands are free to play." —Kaysey Davis

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "Each little detail is thoughtfully designed, from the large finger loop to the slightly curved tip — even the material itself is designed to keep your grabbers clean and free of microbes and bacteria. I was also really surprised by how ergonomic it is!

    I was able to open even the heaviest doors with relative ease, and thanks to the touchscreen tips, I could flip between paying for groceries and answering texts in seconds. What about push doors, you may ask? NOT AN ISSUE! I just attached the silicone tips to the end and used them to gently prod doors open — no slip, no scratches. Push, pull, tap, grab — this lil' guy does it all, and keeps your hands germ free in the process." —Victoria Kuglin

    Amazon / Via

    "My best friend introduced me to this miracle-worker of a product (ON HER WEDDING DAY!) and I feel compelled to share it with the world. I swear, it's that good. I quickly bought my own Diamond Dazzle Stik and never looked back! It keeps my engagement ring and wedding band (in addition to all my other pieces of jewelry) sparkling like the day I got them. I've even used it on cubic zirconia studs to spiff 'em up a little. All you have to do is wet the tip, twist the back of the pen, scrub your gem, and rinse 'em all off (PLEASE KEEP YOUR DRAIN CLOSED). This pen is a game-changer and is my go-to gift for any newly engaged couple." —Heather Braga

    18. A bestselling coffee maker and pitcher that'll help you make the perfect batch of iced coffee every time. You can store it in the fridge overnight (up to 36 hours) to let it brew, and you’ll wake up to four cups of delicious iced coffee.

    Amazon / Via, Maitland Quitmeyer/BuzzFeed

    "It's so delish, and it makes mornings far more bearable. It’s great for keeping in the office when that 3 p.m. slump hits, but you don’t feel like going to a coffee shop (or spending $5 on cold brew). It's pretty concentrated, so you can either dilute it with water or milk, or just drink it straight with ice (I've done all three). Coarse or French Press-ground beans are suggested but TBH, I just use regular beans, and I don't have issues with grounds making their way into my coffee!" —Maitland Quitmeyer

The flexible silicone head and long, narrow handle can fit into your favourite makeup and skincare bottles. And when the containers are cleaned out, they're in the perfect condition to be recycled!

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The regular spatula is great for medium to large sized bottles like lotion, shampoo, or conditioner. It's long enough to get to the bottom of the containers and the end of the handle is on an angle so you have more control. The mini spatula is perfect for makeup bottles. I used it all the time when the pump on one of my serum bottles stopped working. I figure after using these spatulas for a few months, I've probably saved more than a few loonies and toonies on makeup and skincare. Plus, it's super satisfying to see how much product comes out. I knew there was more in there!" —Kaysey Davis

    24. A Squatty Potty that'll make it WAY easier to poop. The stool will help you into a comfortable squatting position, which is supposed to be better for your body than sitting. Reviewers say it helps reduce the amount of time they spend in the bathroom.

    It prevents straining and helps with hemorrhoids, constipation, and bloating.

    “Yes. I used the Squatty Potty while pooping and it made pooping easier. It took a day or two to get used to, but within a week of using it, I noticed quite a positive difference in my, uh, evacuation. It took less effort and less time, and really just made the whole process a lot more pleasant. In fact, within a week, it started feeling strange to use other toilets WITHOUT the Squatty Potty. I actually prefer using it now.” —Kat Angus

    Kyle Richmond/BuzzFeed

    "I already own an Anker portable block charger, and it's served me well, so I knew when I ordered this, it would be a great charging option. I've been super happy with the way it's been working so far. It's great to be able to pick my phone up while I'm lying in bed without using another hand to disconnect a cable. It's also small enough that the phone takes up most of the pad, which is good for aesthetics. My only caveat: you have to make sure your phone is centered on the pad and the light is on, otherwise it won't charge. (This happened to me last night, but that might be a phone issue vs. a charger issue.) Not all phones will work with wireless charging, so make sure you check compatible phones before purchasing." —Kyle Richmond
