    1. A pet hair-removing roller with a patented brush design (and *no* adhesive strips to replace) to rid your lovely black sofa of all your furry friend's shedding in a quick roll — so you can get back to cuddling together.

    amazon.com

    It has almost 9,000 5-star reviews!

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound. tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing – he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    2. A set of battery-powered flameless candles with moving wicks that flicker realistically for a relaxing atmosphere or the *look* of a fireplace — without worrying about whether or not you left a candle burning. 🤔

    The five pillar candles with remove
    Amazon

    You can even control them with a remote!

    Get the set of five from Amazon for $15.99.

    Promising review: "These are awesome flameless candles. They actually look like real flames with the way they have made them. They are a believable brightness and flicker really nicely. The remote is easy to use and though each candle uses AA batteries, they last a very long time. I've had these for over seven months, turn them on almost every night for three to four hours, and have not had to change the batteries yet. The candles are real wax and, overall, this is a high quality product. I would recommend to anyone." —Martin Richard Zefelippo

    3. Scrubbing Bubbles stick-on gels to freshen and prevent buildup with every flush, so you can go longer between scrubs — without compromising on your clean.

    amazon.com, youtube.com

    Each gel stamp lasts for about 12 days (depending on how often you flush), each refill has six gel stamp uses, and each box has two refills. So one box will keep your toilet clean for at least 144 days.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.50.

    Promising review: "I live in a two-story house with three men, so needless to say, our downstairs toilet becomes quite a mess no less than three days after I clean it. But with this product, it keeps the bathroom smelling fresh, the toilet looking clean, and me feeling less grossed out about cleaning the toilet at the end of the week! I highly recommend this product for anyone with a house full of guys, or just someone who hates cleaning the toilet as much as I do. You could easily not scrub your bowl for two weeks and not have to worry about stuck on grossness." —Vanessa

    4. A bidet toilet attachment that'll ~clean the crap out of~ your butt (more thoroughly and with less waste than TP) with just a quick squirt, so you can use less toilet paper *and* feel cleaner. That's a win-win.

    The bidet controls on the side of the toilet, and a jet of water coming out of the bidet inside the bowl
    Amazon

    The Luxe Bidet Neo 120 (which we recommend here), has chrome knobs for a more ~elegant~ look, everything you need to set it up in minutes right in the kit, and a self-cleaning feature that sanitizes the nozzle and retracts when you're not using it.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    Promising review: " It was actually my brother who sold me on trying one after he’d done so himself, and after installing it myself, (which really is pretty quick and easy), I was blown away the very first time I used it. If you’re one of those people that use wayyyy too much toilet paper and wipes because you can’t ever seem to get clean enough, this device will be a pleasant surprise. The rinse from the water does most of the cleaning for you. You’ll hardly need any toilet paper at all afterwards, other than to dry off. No rubbing your skin raw anymore trying to get clean. I can’t recommend this product highly enough. Just try it. You’ll love it. Yes, it’s cold water that washes you off, but you feel totally refreshed afterwards, and extremely clean and pain-free." —Scott

    Btw, the Luxe Bidet Neo 120 was our $$$ pick for best toilet paper (well, best way to get your butt clean) on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    5. A pack of Miracle-Gro plant food *spikes* to revive and nourish all the flowering or foliage plants you'd otherwise CERTAINLY kill — for up to two months with each spike.

    amazon.com

    Each one feeds your green child for up to two months!

    Get a pack of 48 from Amazon for $7.23.

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering, so I put a few of these spikes in the pot (there are directions on the back of package for quantity), and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it, and my African violet plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also! I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster, and they became more green and healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product, and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    6. A stainless-steel bar that'll actually rid your hands of foul odors (even fish, garlic, and onions!). Just rub — with or *without* water — and the stink is gone. Save that soap for when it really counts, not just garlic fingers.

    The soap bar-shaped stainless steel, with the text "rub away" on it
    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.39.

    Promising review: "I always thought it was a hoax that a piece of steel could remove kitchen odors (like from chopping onions or garlic). I am happy to report that it totally works. Handle all the stinky food you want — even nonfood odors — and then wash your hands with this steel bar. No soap. No perfume. It just removes the odor nearly instantly. Little bar is reasonably priced as well. Best gadget I've bought in years." —Deb

    7. A set of reusable snack and sandwich bags so you can stop buying and tossing disposable ones ever again — and carrying snacks with you is always a good idea.

    Four of the bags with produce in them
    amazon.com

    They're leak-safe, dishwasher-safe, and freezer-safe, too.

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $16.99.

    Promising review: "My goal for 2020 was to start saving money. I'm a big 'meal prepper' and I eat healthy snacks through my workday. These bags are perfect!!! I wish they had some in true snack size, like for small berries and such. But i love them! I just rinse them out and hang on the coffee cup side of the dish rack and they dry just fine! Only thing is I did notice some minor staining when I put in blueberries, but it came out in a few washes. They are super durable and lay almost completely flat, which is something I was looking for. I did NOT want the bulky bags like they sell on Grove.co I HAVE EVEN STARTED USING THESE IN THE FREEZER! Overall very satisfied and would purchase again!" —Raeann

    8. A champagne stopper to preserve the bubbles in your half-finished bottle of sparkling wine for DAYS. AKA this is the perfect accessory for Aperol spritz szn.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    I have this myself, and what a great purchase! This little bb is so easy to use — just pop it on top of the bottle, push the metal sides in so it clamps on, then push the top button several times to vacuum seal and preserve the bubs. Then when you next want a glass, spritz, or mimosa, you'll hear that same *POP* you heard when first taking out the cork — and the effervescence you so crave will be fully intact. Plus, you can confidently store your leftover bottle on its side in your fridge; I've had zero leakage problems with this!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    9. A pair of extra large wool dryer balls that'll ensure your laundry dries quicker and gets softer than ever — *25%* faster. AND no wasteful dryer sheets. Those towels that take FOR-E-VER (The Sandlot voice) to dry? No more.

    Get them from Celsius for $20 (available in white and grey).

    Celsious is a Black women-owned and environmentally focused laundromat *and* online shop based in Brooklyn.

    10. A set of reusable grocery bags to help you shop greener and save money if your local stores charge you for plastic bags — basically, buying these makes a lot of ~cents~.

    A large reusable bag in yellow with dogs printed on the fabric
    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99 (for a set of five; available in four sets of colors/prints).

    Promising review: "These are giant bags. They are extremely sturdy. I can go grocery shopping for my whole family using these and I’m not afraid of them ripping or tearing like I do with store bags or other reusable bags. The patterns are also really cute." —Amber Sayre

    11. A Foreo Luna Mini 2, a silicone face-cleansing brush designed to wash and exfoliate, scrubbing every drop of makeup, dirt, and oil from your face with each vibrating pulse. No replacement heds (a la Clarisonic), and the charge lasts for a looong time.

    Myself using the pink device with text "makeup, dead skin cells, excess oil, grim, etc. All gone in 60 seconds"
    BuzzFeed

    It'll totally remove your makeup, dirt, and oil, AAAAND gently exfoliate your skin in just 60 seconds (I know). ^That's me! I love this handy lil' device SO much. Check out my in-depth Foreo Luna Mini 2 review for all the deets!

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in seven colors).

    Promising review: "I really regretted this purchase at first, seemed like it was just a vibrator, the shape was weird considering the angles of a face, the two different sides felt the same. BUT THEN....... I dried my face with a white towel and there was not a speck of makeup left on the towel and I didn't have a drop of mascara raccoon eye look left on my face. This is the cleanest my face has ever been. I will keep using it." —hine0108

    12. A menstrual cup if you're tired of buying box after box of tampons and pads and looking for something reusable.

    Hand with the light pink, angled menstrual cup inside
    Intimina

    This one from Intimina rolls up to be as thin as a tampon and has a slanted rim — you can wear it for up to 12 hours!

    Get it from Intimina for $29.95 (available in two sizes: size A for those who haven't given birth or have a medium flow, and size B for those who have given birth, have a weaker pelvic floor, or have a heavier flow).

    13. Or a pair of leakproof trunks with a floating absorbent gusset (with space for pad wings!) to keep you dry and comfortable, whether you're using them as backup protection or full coverage.

    The black trunks with logo waistband
    TomboyX

    Promising review: "BEST PURCHASE I'VE EVER MADE, PROBABLY. I bought this underwear the day it was released. I don't usually buy anything off clearance, but I made an exception for period-proof underwear that isn't panties/briefs. I figured these would be worth $30 apiece for being a shape that won't set off my brain's gender alarms. These are so much nicer even than just that. I no longer get pad wedgies. My reusable fabric pads no longer slide around randomly (the floating gusset holds everything in place nicely). The gusset doesn't get twisted, doesn't chafe, nothing like that. Everything stays exactly where I need it to be, even when I'm asleep. The only downside -- the fabric is a little thinner than I expected. I'd only ordered bras from TomboyX before, so I didn't realize how lightweight the underwear is. It's comfortable and it's fully opaque, so it's not really an issue, just an observation. Time will tell how these hold up to repeated wearing, washing, stain removing, etc., but I have high hopes since the overall design is really effective." —E.

    Get them from TomboyX for $32 (available in sizes XS–4X and two colors).

    TomboyX is a queer-owned business founded by Fran and Naomi, with the mission of creating comfy, gender-neutral underwear and loungewear

    14. A liquid-free, reusable rolling screen cleaner that'll clean your tablet, phone, laptop, and more once and for all. You know when your screen goes dark and you're like "Oh wow, I'm disgusting!" That's over now.

    amazon.com

    Oh, is that just me?

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "This little device removes the oil from your screen. Often, when you are 'cleaning' your screen by wiping it with a cloth, you are simply pushing around the oil into a thin enough layer to see through without noticing it as much. This device actually lifts the oil and removes it. My screen feels like new, which is great because I am picky about my devices. Also, this is much better than cleaning the screen with some kind of wipe since repeated cleaning with most wipes will damage the screen over time. Unbeknownst to me, my wife was cleaning her screen daily and now her screen collects oils far too quickly because she wore off the protective layer. With this product, you don't need to worry about that. Clean it as often as you want/need and you can continue to enjoy that pristine screen without fear of wearing the oleophobic layer off prematurely. I would highly recommend this to others." —Alex

    15. A toothbrush-esque power scrubber with replaceable heads that'll put in some electronic elbow grease so you don't have to wear out your arms.

    A review image of the scrubber on a half-cleaned surface, with dark, dirty grout before and clean grout after
    amazon.com

    It comes with a 1/2-inch general cleaning brush head, but you can also buy a 1-inch head and a specialized grout-cleaning head!

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    Promising review: "I always thought things like this were silly; surely a little elbow grease will get any job done, right? nope! I fell madly in love with this brush the second I used it! Sure it's a bit loud, but my gleaming white grout in my bathroom totally negates it. I've since discovered so so many things I can clean with this. There's nooks and crannies all over my apartment (built in 1890!) that I never thought would be clean... but a few minutes after letting this bad boy loose on it, everything was squeaky clean! Also a huge help to those of us who are disabled!!" —Crystal

    16. A steel foot filing rasp that'll undo years of callus buildup in mere MINUTES. No waiting for intense creams to do their work, no getting pedicure after pedicure — if you want to see results ASAP, you'll think it's ~grate~. And unlike foot files, this'll last and last.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    Promising review: "I have BAD feet. Like genetically bad. I have tried EVERYTHING. I’ve spent an excessive amount of money on foot masks, foot scrubs, pedicures, pumice stones, foot files, etc. Nothing worked. This fixed my feet in five minutes. I was actually in shock. I haven’t had 'soft' feet in years. I literally feel like I have new feet. Best $10 I ever spent." —Hdb

    17. An under-the-sink water filtration system to help you kiss your Brita goodbye and pour a glass of the good stuff straight from the tap. And fun fact: It's designed to be installed in under three minutes.

    A reviewer photo showing a used filter turned completely brown, and an unused one that's all white
    amazon.com

    And yes, the above photo shows a used filter (left) vs. an unused one (right) to show how much it's filtering OUT of the water. Yikes. BTW, each cartridge lasts for two years! You can get more from Amazon for $19.99.

    It has a two-step filter that removes 99.99% of contaminants, and it comes with direct connect hoses to hook right up to the standard 3/8-inch valves in US kitchen sinks.

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    Promising review: "We have town water and it seems they are putting more and more chlorine in it every year. We should be getting used to it and tasting it less and less, not more! The refrigerator filters are super expensive and weren't cutting it. Every time I put a glass to my mouth it smelled like a swimming pool. I searched the internet and decided to give this a try due to the positive reviews and affordability. Wow! easy install (I'm an avid DIYer). And the taste! The chlorine taste is just gone! No more overpriced fridge filters for us. I love that the filter replacement procedure is basically the same as a fridge. Just twist and remove. We love it so much I teed off the fridge line and put a dispenser at our sink as well. The flow on this thing is just amazing! And the water tastes great! Don't waste your money on the expensive, complicated ones. My parents have a three-chambered, name brand filter at their house. It was expensive, the replacement filters are expensive, it is a pain in the petunias to replace the filters, and the flow rate is pathetic! But guess what! Our water from this filter tastes just as good as theirs at a fraction of the price, plus it's way more convenient, plus the flow rate is way better. I just can't say enough. Love, Love it! You will too!" —BJ

    18. A stainless-steel tongue cleaner that'll make halitosis a distant memory. You won't even know what kind of bad breath-causing gunk is on your tongue until you see the results for yourself!

    A reviewer's tongue: on the left with yellow residue, on the right pink and clean
    amazon.com

    The curved stainless-steel will feel smooth against your tongue, removing bacteria without causing irritation — and it lasts for years.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.98.

    Promising review: "Besides its obvious purpose, this item is really fun to use! I also like the consequences; I get to see the 'stuff' on the metal piece when I scrape it which tells me I'm taking crap off my tongue. And then my tongue also feels scraped, which makes me feel like I did something more than just some kind of toothpaste or mouthwash to generally keep my mouth clean (which hasn't worked before). I think the feeling of having done something specific to keep your mouth clean is an important aspect of having confidence in your breath. After having bad breath for a while, no matter whether my mouth is clean or not, I shy away from talking directly at people. But this helps remove some of my doubts and act like a normal human being again."Ashley

    19. A handy-dandy silicone paw cleaner designed to fully (but gently) remove dirt, mud, sand, ice melt and whatever else from your furry friend's feet pronto – and without the hassle of scrubbing or wasting paper towels. Just rinse it out for next time!

    amazon.com

    You'll *both* be happier.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in three sizes and six colors).

    Promising review: " UPDATE: I’ve been using this for a few weeks, and I love it. It cleans the salt off my dogs’ paws so easily. When it’s super dirty and the streets are covered in salt, I’ll refresh the water supply. I add a few drops of their doggie shampoo, and it works great. Don’t believe the negative reviews. I don’t see how they can possibly not know how to use this gadget. It is so easy to use. And the pictures of the German Shepherds and their mess, I find it impossible that this gadget could possibly create that mess. I guess if they are covered in thick mud, then they have to be hosed down, and this product is not a replacement for a bath. I have four dogs in NYC. I have to wash their feet after every walk because the streets are so filthy. It would take me about 10-15 minutes to clean their paws with a spray bottle and towel. Now, it takes about five minutes. And the towel doesn’t end up filthy. The dirt gets caught in the cup. Plus the dogs seem to like it. The silicone bristles must feel good. A huge thumbs-up!" —Sandra

    20. Ethylene gas-absorbing apples for anyone tired of fresh produce spoiling before they can use it — the company claims these'll save the average household up to $600 per year.

    The small apple-shaped device in a pile of produce
    Amazon

    They can keep produce fresher for two to three times longer. Each packet inside the Bluapple lasts three months, and you can order replacement packets as needed.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    Promising review: "This product works so much better than I thought it would! Worth every penny. The little ethylene gas (produce lets off this gas and it speeds up it's demise) absorbing packet goes into the apple and you just toss it in your product drawer. Easy peasy! This pack comes with two apples and enough packets to last a full year. I have had strawberries last over a week in the drawer (no fuzzy mold or squishy spots). This has resulted in less waste and I am sure that they have more than paid for themselves in food savings in just a couple of months. So glad I gave these a try." —Lisa C.

    21. Speaking of paper towels, a roll of ~bamboo~ paper towels you can toss in the washing machine and reuse over *120 times*. They're super-absorbent and durable, but are soft enough to use on your skin, too. You can even use them on your Swiffer!

    Amazon

    One roll of these will tackle a number of messes equivalent to 60 ROLLS of conventional paper towels.

    Get a roll from Amazon for $12.99.

    Promising review: "I've had these bamboo towels for a month now and am incredibly impressed with their performance! They're much larger than a regular paper towel, thicker, softer and more absorbent. I've washed the first ones I've torn off the roll several times now and they DO survive the laundry and perform just as well afterward. I've only used five bamboo towels this month, washed them and re-used. Several times. I would have been through a whole roll of Brawny by now. One caveat...when you wash them, you're supposed to air dry them, so I haven't sent any through the dryer. And I haven't needed to, because allowing them to air dry has not affected the quality of the towels when I 're-roll' them!" —A. Clark

    22. A knife sharpener with two grooves (one for coarse sharpening and one for quick touch-ups) to make your year-old knives slice like brand-new.

    Hands running a knife through one of the sharpening channels
    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I have had my set of knives for over 10 years. I was looking to replace them when someone recommended trying to sharpen them. I hated sharpening the knives with the sharpener they came with. I wanted something easy. This was it! I sharpened all my knives with it and they are like they were when I first purchased them. This knife sharpener made it quick and easy. It saved me a lot of money from purchasing a new set. If your knives are dull, give this a try. You can't beat it for the price!" —M. Bell

    23. A set of telescoping stainless-steel straws so you can sip your iced coffee (use it long!) or Aperol spritz (use it short!) without bothering a single sea turtle.

    Two straws at different lengths: one long and one short
    Amazon

    They also have silicone tips to protect your teeth!

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection on Amazon for $12.99.

    24. A Burst electric toothbrush for all the benefits of the non-manual kind (more effective cleaning! two-minute timer!) *plus* a toothbrush head subscription program so you can make sure you're effectively brushing without even having to think about it.

    Hand holding the toothbrush in black
    Burst Oral Care

    The battery last for FOUR WEEKS so you don't need to worry about recharging while traveling, and it has charcoal bristles, three brushing modes, and over 30,000 vibrations per minute for an effective clean.

    Get the toothbrush from Burst Oral Care for $69.99 (available in three colors), and get replacement heads for $6 each every 90 days.

    Promising review: "I bought this with recommendation from my dental hygienist and it has channeled my life. I feel like my teeth are cleaner, my breath is better and I enjoy brushing my teeth more than ever. This has been the best purchase I’ve made this year." —Brianan

    25. And a Waterpik that'll take all the work out of flossing (including...buying floss at all). Just aim the nozzle, and a targeted jet of water'll get right in between your teeth, removing plaque and food particles without irritating your gums — or cutting off the circulation to your fingertips like regular floss.

    Amazon

    This model has an on/off switch right on the handle so you can pause easily without squirting water all over your bathroom. It comes with seven flossing tips for different needs, including for crowns and implants — this is great for braces, too!

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in eight colors).

    Promising review: "This thing is a necessity. That's how strongly I feel about it after a month of usage. I had regularly used floss and felt that it was adequate, but decided to purchase a Waterpik because it was on sale and I was bored. Wow. This is one of the most important purchases I've made in years. I feel like a good analogy would be to try imagining cleaning the hard-to-reach parts of your vehicle with a rope. You've done it for years because it's all you know. Then enters the pressure washer, which allows you to blast things to smithereens. Floss = rope, Waterpik = pressure washer. Bam. Done. Not going back as long as it works." —Damian

    Check our our review of a different Waterpik model to learn more about water flossing!

    26. Antimicrobial silicone sponges that'll never get stinky — they're almost 100% resistant to mold and mildew, more durable than regular sponges, and won't scratch your pots and pans!

    Model using the sponge with text "silicone. no odor. clean"
    Amazon

    They *guarantee* that each scrubber sponge will stay odor-free for at least three months.

    Promising review: "My girlfriend has a keen nose for mildew, which meant we were throwing out kitchen sponges well before they were worn out. I came across these and was very happy with the first ones we tried. Absolutely no odor, even after several weeks worth of usage. The scrubber will break down long before it starts to smell. A definite winner in my book!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.95.

    Also available in a version designed to clean your stovetop!

    27. Rubbermaid FreshWorks storage containers with venting technology to keep produce fresh for up to 80% longer.

    A BuzzFeed Shopping reviewer's image comparing a strawberry kept fresh in the Rubbermaid container with one kept in the original clamshell (significantly soft and mushy)
    BuzzFeed / Natalie Brown

    The vents regulate the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and keeps moisture away so your strawberries taste freshly-picked days and days and days later. I recently got a couple of these and a bunch of basil and strawberries stayed fresh for SO LONG!!

    Promising review: "I read the reviews and thought I’d give these a try since they here easily half the price of the other ones I looked at that had to have the charcoal filters replaced periodically. These need no filter changes and oh-my-gosh, they work! I went on a 10-day trip to visit my mom and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back and they were in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! These will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough. (We shop at Costco and get large containers of produce.) These are TOTALLY worth getting and I will be getting a few more sizes. Excellent product!!!" —Elizabeth Walter

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $16.99 (available in six sizes and in sets of multiples).

    28. A fancy-schmancy single-blade razor that glides evenly with yours skin to ensure minimal razor burn and ingrown hairs. Plus, you can use it foreeeevveerrrrr with replacement blades and reduce your plastic use!

    Promising reviews: "Best purchase I've made in a looonnng time! So happy!" —Brianna Shea

    "My first time using the Oui Razor, I got the closest shave I’ve ever experienced. I have super sensitive skin, and am very prone to razor burn, but this razor, paired with the shave gel, made my legs feel like they had been waxed, and I got NO razor burn! I love this razor!" —Jamie

    Oui the People is a Black-owned business, and their products are designed to help you get your shave on *without* ingrowns and razor burn — and make you feel good in your skin.

    29. A set of silicone baking liners to make stuck-on foods (looking at you, fish!) and wasting parchment paper and foil a thing of the past. Just pop it on your sheet pan and bake away.

    amazon.com

    These are also game-changing if you like to bake cookies TBH.

    Get a set of four mats (two half and two quarter), plus a silicone brush and spatula from Amazon for $26.75.

    Promising review: "OMG!!! I don’t know how I ever baked without silicone baking mats before. This was my first time trying them, and I was NOT disappointed! They are truthfully nonstick. They bake evenly every time. They are quite durable; my daughter used one directly on the rack for her pizza (she didn’t know that this manufacturer recommends that you NOT do that). It baked the pizza evenly and the cheese came out perfectly browned, while the crust was perfectly crisp. They wash very well in the dishwasher; I just stand them in a slot between the plates. I’ve used these mats to bake cookies, hot pockets, chicken breast, bacon, crescent rolls, and more. Every single item turned out perfectly. I would HIGHLY recommend these baking mats! I will definitely be purchasing more for myself and others!" —YaLanda

    30. A KitchenAid stand mixer bakers or mashed potato lovers will cherish for decades. Creaming butter just takes TOO LONG to do it with a hand mixer, and this machine will last for *years* (and years and years and years).

    Amazon

    It has 10 speed settings, comes with a flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip, and you can get TONS of attachments to make the most use out of this bb. Hello homemade pasta! As someone who loves to bake, it's just necessary to have a KitchenAid IMO.

    Get it from Amazon for $379.99 (available in 57 colors).

    Promising review: "Great for making cakes and breads. Helps greatly that my arthritic hands are not up to stirring and kneading anymore so the beautiful pink KitchenAid stands up to the test. Purchased for my daughter and I am teaching her to bake and cook as she now has a family of her own. Would own nothing but a KitchenAid. My original is nearly 30 years old and is still in fine working order. By far the best by for the money and lots of beautiful colors are now available besides my basic white old faithful. If I did a huge amount of baking I would get a commercial grade but I am just a home baker and still work everyday. Cannot go wrong with the stand mixer." —Shelia Foster

    31. A set of makeup-removing cloths to remove every single trace of dirt and makeup (even waterproof formulas!) with just water. Using disposable makeup wipe after makeup wipe — or worse, sleeping with makeup on? That can end now.

    And the cloths are super soft, so you won't have to resort to harsh scrubbing that can dry out your face.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.49 (also available in a pack of five in solids and prints).

    Promising review: "This product... I have no clue how this works, but it does! Let me start by saying I was wearing a full face of make up. I mean foundation, contour highlight, eyeliner, seriously the whole nine yards. All I did was wet it and wiped my face, my jaw literally dropped. This is hands-down my favorite make up remover at the moment. The best part is that they are reusable so you don't have to keep buying those expensive disposables that leave your face feeling greasy. And honestly, four dollars? Just buy them. Trust me, you won't regret it." —Heather and Ryne Griffith

    32. A car air freshener you can customize with three colors and over *50* scents to keep your wheels smelling fresh, whether you're carting around messy kids, keep your gym gear in the back seat, or stop for french fries and don't want your car smelling like McDonald's forever.

    They don't mask odors; they also absorb moisture to prevent mold, mildew and bacteria from forming. You can reuse the bags for up to two years — just pop 'em in the sun for an hour every so often to freshen up.

    Promising review: "I have a pair of black leather flats that stank so badly my husband would yell at me if I took them off anywhere near him. But I love the shoes! So I had to find something to make the stench go away without leaving me with an allergic reaction. Mini Moso was the answer. I honestly couldn’t believe it. A few days after placing them in my pried-off shoes, I took a whiff from about a foot away. Nothing. I got closer. Nothing. I stuck my nose practically in the shoe. Ok, maybe that’s pushing things, but I’ve got to tell you that 95% of the broken-in leather grossness was gone. So happy!" —Erin

    34. A handy dandy portable charger with pleeeenty of power for all those times you leave the house without checking how much battery power you have. Oh, am I the only one who does that?

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing & I’d give it 20 stars If I could!! You will NOT be disappointed! My phone was at 48%, I plugged this in, and in 45 minutes it was up to 100% with plenty of charge left in the charger bank!! I plug it in at night after I use it and it’s fully recharged in a couple hours — and it has awesome light to show you how much it’s charged. It’s flat and fits in my purse or pool bag perfectly. The quality is fantastic and better than any other bank I’ve owned!!" —shayk

    Promising review: "I did not have any other Kindles before this. In fact, I'm a traditional book-in-the-hand reader. I love pages. But I have recently gotten into recycling and I was torn between loving my books and saving trees. I did not expect to love this as much as I did. It is small enough that I can hold it in my child-sized hand. Has a great battery life. No glare screen. You can sync it to Goodreads to keep track of the books you have read. I love that it tells me how far into the book I am and how long it until the end of the chapter. It is really easy to tuck into a purse or a large coat pocket. With the pandemic closing the libraries and only being able to borrow books online, I have definitely been able to keep busy. So happy I had this, it's been my constant companion. Even reduced the time I spent on my phone." —LH

    As a personal note, I love my Kindle SO MUCH, and would definitely consider it the best purchase I made that year. I get books immediately downloaded from the library, and I bring it with me *everywhere* I go. I'm literally reading 10 times as many books a year as I was pre-Kindle.

    37. A self-watering, self-aerating planter to keep your thirsty plants happy, *without* worrying about dreaded root rot. Just fill the reservoir and the (patented) hollow legs will draw water up into the soil.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Each planter comes with a clip-on watering attachment for easy pouring!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in three sizes).

    Promising review: "I purchased six of these so far. And plan to purchase more. They are reliable, functional, easy to use, and my plants love them. They work well indoors and out. The little spout keeps water from getting everywhere. While they are absolutely perfect, a couple of suggestions: It'd be nice if the distance between the saucer and pot was ever so much increased so as to easily tell if more water is needed. Again, this is SO minor and will not affect my future purchases. AND I hope this company is so successful it can add more colors and styles. I plan to buy a half dozen more as my small plants grow a bit more." —Brenda Daily
