    1. A spider and insect catcher that keeps pests in its clutches without smushing them.

    2. A dozen Bottle Bright tablets that'll deep clean your thermoses and on-the-go bottles — no scrubbing required. These'll get into all those hard-to-reach spaces and remove *all* the gunk.

    3. A travel scarf/pillow that supports your neck so you don't nod off onto your neighbor's shoulder.

    4. A lightbulb that slowly dims over the course of 37 minutes, helping you slowly drift off to sleep without worrying about turning the lights off. And it filters out blue light, so you'll feel sleepier.

    5. A pack of Avarelle pimple patches formulated with tea tree oil and calendula oil (to heal and shrink zits faster overnight). And they come in four(!) sizes — small, medium, and large circles PLUS large, square patches so you can easily treat and shrink clusters of pimples all at once.

    6. An incredibly compact espresso maker that requires no batteries or electric power.

    7. A green(!) lipstick that magically transforms into a pink tint on your lips.

    8. A Tubshroom, a game-changing drain strainer to catch every single strand of shed hair and make clogged showers a thing of the past.

    9. A microwave s'mores maker that makes the perfect toasted marshmallow treat without the hassle of a fire.

    10. A funky little tool that clamps onto one side of a bracelet so you can fasten it with one hand.

    11. A weighted coaster that turns any couch into a ~couch with cup holders~.

    12. Sweat-resistant silicone grips that'll keep your earbuds or airpods in your ears during even the most intense workouts.

    13. A bonkers-looking squiggly detangling brush that removes knots without removing your hair.

    14. A Feed n Wax Wood conditioner to basically erase years of damage (looking at you, drink rings) and polish up beautifully, bringing out the natural color and sheen of your pieces — whether the wood is finished or unfinished — *and* add a layer of protection.

    15. Suguru, self-setting rubber that can fix just about anything from dishwashers to iPhone cords.

    16. A six-inch personal heater that'll get the job done for anyone who's always cold.

    17. A travel mug that chills coffee or tea in under five minutes — no ice required.

    18. Grooming gloves designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting.

    19. A microfiber cloth to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. And the cloths are super soft, so you won't have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

    20. Produce-saving containers that'll regulate the flow or oxygen and carbon dioxide, keeping fruit, veggies, and greens fresh for 80% longer... and saving you money.

    21. A Jergens in-shower lotion designed to be used on wet skin so you can get in, get out, and get on with your day. Mornings are hard enough!
