    1. A coffee dripper that'll brew a single cup of joe right into your mug. It'll fit over most mugs, and it has measurements on the side, so you'll know exactly how much water is in it.

    Amazon / Via, Bek O'Connell/BuzzFeed

    "How many times has this happened to you: You make a big pot of coffee and then realize you're the only one drinking it. You end up drinking the whole thing and get so wired you consider just sprinting to work on foot. Well, dear reader: I suggest you just make a single cup of coffee with a simple pour over coffee maker.

    This inexpensive one from OXO is a great place to start, thanks to its price point and easy-to-use design. Simply line with a coffee filter, add your grounds, and pour in the hot water. The water tank has markings so you know exactly how much water you're adding. The lid retains heats while brewing and the hole patterns ensure that you get an even and quality brew every single time. It usually takes about five minutes to get a full cup of coffee. I prefer this bad boy over a French press simply because it's way easier to clean and works just a smidge faster (every second is crucial when you're waiting on caffeine)." —Bek O'Connell

    3. A set of dimmable LED lights that'll transform a regular mirror into a star-worthy vanity mirror. There are five brightness levels that you can adjust using the up and down buttons. And you won't have to worry about any pesky cords, because they come with a rechargeable battery.

    Amazon / Via, Imaan Sheikh/BuzzFeed

    "These vanity lights look beautiful, and they do a really great job at providing the perfect lighting to put on makeup. They have a dimmer as well as a light warmth adjuster, so you get to see how you'll look in ANY kind of light (which is great, because I'm tired of looking good under my bathroom lights, and realizing I'm actually orange when I step out in daylight). It took me no more than ten minutes to install them and not even one of them has come off in over two months." —Imaan Sheikh

    8. A pack of screen protectors that'll keep you from cracking your phone if you drop it. It's made of tempered glass, making it extra durable. It's also very thin, so it won't interfere with the sensitivity of your touchscreen.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The installation process took a bit longer than I thought it would. The screen protectors came with an alcohol wipe to clean and disinfect my phone, a cloth to dry it, a sticker to catch dust, and a guiding edge to help me line up the screen protector with my phone. AND it comes with a link to an entire video that guided me through the process. It took me about ten minutes to figure it all out, but the results were amazing. The screen protector took all the blows and when I couldn't stand looking at the cracks on it, I just peeled it off and replaced it with a new one. My actual phone screen is still in mint condition, and I'm free to be a messy, phone-dropping klutz without dealing with the consequences." —Kaysey Davis

    13. A pack of reusable cotton rounds that won't fall apart while you're using them. They're super absorbent, so they're great for removing makeup or applying toner, and you can throw them in the washing machine when they get dirty.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    "These cotton rounds have come in super handy when it comes to taking off my foundation and eye makeup at the end of the night, and are only a little bit more expensive than a pack of wipes. The pack comes with three large rounds and two small rounds. The small ones are soft on both sides while the large ones have a bit of a rougher texture on one side of them, making them great for light exfoliation.

    You actually don't need to use any makeup remover with them, but I like to add a touch if I'm rocking waterproof eyeliner and mascara (it just makes for less scrubbing). Honestly, I even use them when I'm not wearing makeup to get rid of any dirt or grime that's magically found its way onto my face over the course of the day. TL;DR: These are great and you won't regret buying them." —Alice Prendergast

    Amazon / Via, Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    It's a little hot, but it's not overbearing, so it serves more to enhance flavors than to burn your mouth.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "The spongey exterior is very soft and light, but it's the weighted bead inside the sponge that does all the hard work. All I have to do is fill my bottles with a mixture of water and soap, pop the sponges in, and shake it like a Polaroid picture. I liked that the sponges were small enough to fit inside all my water bottles, even the ones with very narrow mouths, like my BuzzFeed one. Cleaning my water bottles has never been so much fun, and the sponges are easy to clean, too." —Kaysey Davis
