    1. A microfiber towel turban that'll help dry your hair faster (without causing damage or frizz). And it buttons easily in the back so the whole thing won't go sliding off your head when you're sitting watching TV.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "This is great!!! I always hate having the towel fall off my head, plus a normal towel is actually damaging for your hair. This just works so well, stays on, and reduces frizz. I had to buy a few more because I love it so much. Seriously, everyone with hair past your ears needs this." —Kate

    2. A handheld electric milk frother so you don't *have* to leave your home to enjoy a fabulous latte or cappuccino.

    It's battery operated — just run it in some soapy water for an easy cleaning!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two colors).

    Promising review: "Love this little thing! I have every thing you can think of at home for making coffee and espresso... Well I love the Starbucks pumpkin cream cold brew with foam. I set out to make my own. Well I can now make cold foam thanks to this little tool. Love it!" —Gav's mama

    3. An easy-to-use jewelry cleaning brush for polishing up your brand new or decades-old precious stones and keep them as sparkling as you are.


    It's filled with a cleansing + polishing solution to rid stones of clouding dirt and oil and ensure every facet shines. Just twist the bottom of the pen to dispense the fluid and brush on!

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this..*oh my goodness*! After one use of the Diamond Dazzle ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my beautiful diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance! My wedding ring is something that always makes my heart beat a little faster: for its beauty, for what it represents...and now, my smile is even bigger and my heart skips a beat a little more as I gaze upon this amazing clarity. It is an amazing value with mind-blowing, beautiful results!" —liltreeclimber

    4. A few sheets of LED-dimming stickers to finally keep those pesky router, TV, clock, and other electronic lights from ruining your ~room of complete darkness~.

    They dim 50-80% of the light, so you can still tell that your devices are still actually *on* and functioning. You can always double them up to completely block out the light source if you'd like (many reviewers do this) or buy the stronger **full black-out** edition!

    Get a sheet of over 100 dimming stickers (in multiple sizes and shapes) from Amazon for $5.59.

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape, regular tape covered in sharpie, etc, but true to the name of these products if you're looking for something to DIM, then this is for you. Also the product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    5. Sherpa-lined slipper socks to keep your toes as warm as your heart feels when you look at these little fox faces.


    Plus they have non-slip grips on the bottom to keep you from slipping and sliding.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 25 styles).

    Promising review: "These are the softest, warmest, fluffiest, coziest, most amazing socks. The inside is made of the same stuff as the top part, and it's soooooooo soft! These are clearly hand made by free range unicorns that choose to share their love with the world by sharing the magical warmth of their hearts channeled into the form of socks. I got the cat ones first, but more styles are currently in transit to me, including the unicorn ones, obviously." —Emma

    6. A wine-aerating spout that'll help your three-buck chuck breathe and open up, helping the individual flavors and ~nuances~ of the wine be more apparent — even to beginner wine palates.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "I own aa few of the aerators and this one is by far easiest to use. I bought the Vintorio previously and it makes me mad every time because it just keeps coming apart. This one is one piece, easy to use, easy to clean and the wine tastes better." —Picky Shopper $

    7. A pair of unbelievably soft leggings in a super-buttery, lightweight fabric so comfy, you'll want to buy them in every color. /

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two size ranges: S–L and XL–3X and 23 colors).

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I never take the time to write reviews — and I purchase half of everything we buy on Amazon. However, as a former LLR obsessed mom of two toddlers, I felt called to make time to review these leggings. If you are reading this and wondering how these compare to LLR leggings, I am here to tell you I am confident LLR is ripping loyal customers off by charging $25-30+. These leggings are just as soft. They fit the same, if not better. They do NOT PILL if you wash cold and hang dry. I truly feel like I’m wearing 'butter leggings' or 'like I’m naked' or whatever other claims LLR makes. The price is obviously better and more fair in my opinion. I really can’t say enough. Stop stop stop buying LLR and buy these." —Jen Wolfe

    8. A round blindspot mirror that'll make merging, changing lanes, and even parallel parking a breeze.


    Just clean your side mirror with alcohol (to remove outdoor grime or residue), and attach this round mirror — the 3m adhesive will hold strong. And they attach on a pivoting base, so you can adjust them for the perfect view.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $5.97 (also available in a rectangular shape).

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I gotten my license I've hated merging or switching lanes; I never felt good or safe doing it. Since having these its been a blessing, I feel less like a scared new driver. I'm currently encouraging my sister and friends to invest in these too! These are also great for backing up, because you can see exactly how close you are to hitting the car behind. They're helpful when I parallel park in the city, and I like parking backwards, so this great for doing that too." —Mariam Abass

    9. A clip-on spoon rest so all the good stuff drips back *into* your pot rather than onto your sparkling countertop — and so you don't get ~crabby~ having to scrub your surfaces down later.


    Get it from Amazon for $8.75.

    Promising review: "This is pretty much the best invention since, well, since spoon rests — only a whole lot better!!! I've always hated transferring a dripping spoon to a separate spoon rest or plate. I've often left my utensils in the pot with the food only to burn my hand because of transferred heat or have a not so high quality utensil soften in the soup. This pot clip works so well. It clips easily to the side of my pots and fits the handles of all of my utensils and the little rubbery projections firmly grip keeping the utensil from sliding. I bought a second one for myself! Great invention!!!" —Yeah-Nah

    10. A bra extender (it also works for the crotches of bodysuits if you add snaps!) so you can finally BREATHE in a correctly fitting boob-holder. Cue sigh of relief.

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $5.99 (available in 14 sizes and color combos).

    Promising review: "These have been amazing during my pregnancy. I really can't rave enough. When my body started changing I went out and bought a new bra (I'm a 32 and got a 34), but soon it started feeling tight on me. I didn't need another bra because the cups still fit fine, then I found these extenders, and they made all the difference! I can extend without buying new bras! They are sooo soft and comfortable, you can't really feel or tell they are there. I've already recommended them to all of my pregnant friends!" —Mari

    11. A garlic prepping set with a silicone tube (that'll peel the garlic) and a press (that'll mince it) so you can flavor your food without getting stinky fingers.


    Just pop the individual clove in the tube, and roll it against the counter a few times for a quick peel. Than simply push the press down, and your perfectly minced pieces are ready to use!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! I like the size of the garlic chunks that you get with this masher, and I LOVE how easy it is to clean compared to other garlic mashers. I love that you don't need to use your fingers to peel the garlic. My mom has been cooking with garlic with every meal for 50+ years and wants one now too!!" —Mama Miller

    12. A handheld back roller so you can give (and get) relaxing massages without anyone's hands cramping. Ahhhh-mazing.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "Okay so you can go get a super nice one for $50+ or just buy this one, save a bunch of money, and get the same result! A friend of mine had one of those nice ones and I HAD to get one, how good it feels and the ease! But when I saw the price I was thinking that I’ll try a cheaper one and I am not disappointed! And my hubby is happy because I’ll give him more massages now because it doesn’t hurt my hands." —Snelso

    13. A nifty nimbus magnetic key-holder, because $8 on this adorable item will be a WHOLE lot cheaper than calling a locksmith.

    Attach it to a wall near your front door and never forget — or lose — them again!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    Promising review: "This is one of the most useful purchases I've ever made on Amazon. I use it every single day to hang my keys. I've had it for at least half a year now it seems. It hasn't lost any magnetism and it holds my car keys, remote start, USB, rewards/gift cards, house and work keys, etc. I'm in love. One of the best purchases I've made." —Makenah

    14. Cable-hugging critters to take a ~bite~ out of the annoyance of fraying cords. I ain't lion when I say I'm tired of having to hold my phone in one position to charge!

    Urban Outfitters

    Just clip 'em around any cable you have to reinforce it!

    Get the original Cable Bite from Urban Outfitters for $6 each (or two for $10; available in 19 animals) or a similar version from Amazon for $8.99 each (for a pack of eight).

    Promising review: "I bought a couple of these to reinforce a cord that has become weak due to normal wear and tear. I was hoping they were functional for a Galaxy phone (which I'm thrilled they are) but had no idea how extremely cute they would be. I've ended up buying SEVERAL more for stocking stuffers." —jwow76

    15. A single-handed tape dispenser you should buy *now* to make stress-wrapping gifts in December way, way easier. Just pull the lever to cut the tape!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "My last tape dispenser that was awful. Threading the tape through the mechanism was a PITA. The gears and springs would fall out when you opened the damn thing. Eventually, the tape started to cling to the roller and would rip the paper I was trying to tape. This design is great; the tape self threads itself when you put it on the rubber bands, the tape stays on the inside of the device until you press the trigger to release it, the tape self cuts when you let go of the trigger. Everything can be done with one hand. Wonderful!" —Billster

    16. A set of silicone egg poachers with perforated cups to mimic the traditional poaching method (aka swirling water around and around) without having to do any work — and so your egg stays perfectly round and never wisps away.


    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.95.

    Promising review: "FINALLY! My long search is over for a solution that really works! The eggs poach perfectly! The process involves simply dropping an egg into the poacher and waiting a few minutes for the desired level of firmness — no stirring the water to create a vortex or messing with the egg during cooking! This means that when you need to cook for several guests, multiple poachers can be used to prepare as many eggs as needed at the same time! There was even a handy chart with suggested poaching times which is dead-on accurate. Cleanup is a breeze! I am ordering another set and won't poach any other way than with Good Grips. My only negative comment is that I will probably eat way more Eggs Benedict than I should now that it is so easy to prepare the eggs!" —JoeBT

    17. A bungee dog leash to keep both you and your eager pupper happier on walks — with no unpleasant jolts for either of you.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I always feel bad with the jolt a dog sometimes gets if it quickly pulls from you and the leash immediately goes tight. This has the bungee action so it’s not so harsh on the harness or collar when a dog pulls. Appears to be good quality and good stitching. I like the additional handle so you can grab and make the leash short when you need to hold back you dog. Much more convenient than have to wrap the leash on your hands when you need to make it shorter just momentarily" —Curdio

    18. A brown sugar–softening bear, because no one wants to heat up some oatmeal or prepare to bake cookies, only to discover the brown sugar is now rock-hard.


    I timed my morning routine to the nanosecond, and I don't have time to chip away sugar with a pick!

    Get it from Amazon for $5.74

    Promising review: "This is the second brown sugar bear I've purchased because they work so well. They are simple to use and very effective. Soak it in water and then place it in your brown sugar container. It will keep the sugar soft and easy to scoop. If you have brown sugar that has already hardened and is like a solid rock, you can place the bear in the container and by the next day you will be able to scoop it again. It's simple, effective, and inexpensive. There is no reason not to get this little bear." —Hannah M.

    19. A pack of pimple patches to stop acne IN ITS TRACKS. They protect your skin, preventing further damage or reinfection, while absorbing oil and pus to shrink the zit and reduce redness, helping it heal *so* much faster., Amazon

    Get two boxes of 24 patches from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "In general, I love the idea of these patches because it means that it's drawing out the bacteria while protecting it from external germs & fingers that can't help but touch the area. I've tried a good assortment of pimple patches and this one, by far, has been the most discreet one I've tried! It's thin and is on the matte/satin-y side so it doesn't draw any attention. I've also tried it under makeup and it's nearly seamless! I was telling my friend about it and she didn't even notice the three I had on until I pointed them out. These also come in two sizes, subtle difference in size, but nice to have the option. I regularly bought another brand but seeing how thin it was I wanted to compare — and I'm glad I did, this has made the top of my list because of it's versatility." —Amazon Customer

    20. Bamboo charcoal shoe deodorizers you can pop into your sweatiest, stinkiest beer-soaked flats or old gym shoes — the smell will be G O N E.


    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.

    Get one pair from Amazon for $9.95 (also available for packs of two and three pairs for a discount).

    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 prized 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

    21. A Luminoodle — an LED lighting strip you can affix to the back of your TV for a backlighting effect that'll create sharper images, increase color contrast, and reduce eye strain.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in six sizes).

    Promising review: "You will be surprised how well this works. I though it was a gimmick — but then read several articles about the benefits of bias lighting and though I would give it a try. Setting it up takes about five minutes — very simple. The surprise comes when you turn on the TV with the bias lighting and the picture POPS! The contrast and the black level jumps and the picture looks significantly improved! It supposedly relieves eye strain but I have never really had a problem with that so I can't comment on that." —Rgd18

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

    Get two pairs (one small and one large) from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I've always had a hard time keeping these crazy little earbuds in my ears, so when I head out to the gym, or anywhere that I want to listen to my playlists, I have to use my big earphones. With these, that is no longer a problem! I would recommend them to ANYONE who works out, runs, walks, or just has a general problem with earbuds." —Green Day Lover

    23. A set of toaster-friendly bags perfect for whipping up an ooey gooey grilled cheese when you can't really manage the whole stove thing. Plus they're dishwasher safe, so you don't need to do any washing up by hand!

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $8.49.

    Promising review: "Amazing. Just bread and cheese and two minutes later gooey cheesy deliciousness!!" —Jeanna F.

    24. A draft stopper you can easily install (just peel and stick!) on your door to keep your home the temperature you *want* to to be, whether you're keeping the A/C in during the summer or the cold out during the winter.


    You can just the pieces to fit your door, too. And it can help keep bugs out, which 🙌.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    Promising review: "These are a must have! I couldn’t believe how easy these were to apply. The material is very easy to cut with normal scissors and I was able to lay it on the door cut the exact length apply and noticed and immediate difference! We bought these for two doors leaking cold air into the house but it’ll also double to keep little bugs out! The material is very bendable which is nice if you open the door and it’s long it doesn’t damage anything it’s very rubbery." —Lindsay T.

    25. A soft hairband with cat ears to hold your hair back and keep it from getting in all that serum meant for your skin. It's the little things (like keeping your roots moisturizer-free) that make all the difference.

    Because a spa night at home is truly the cat's meow.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.90.

    Promising review: "I ordered this headband mostly because I am a cat-lady-in-training and I scoop up most cheap cat-themed things I see. It's adorable, and all my other cat-lady friends are oh, so jealous. (Seriously, after snapchatting myself wearing this, six different people asked for the link to buy it!). What I didn't realize when buying this cutesy novelty item is that it is actually very functional as well. I had previously been using a regular elastic headband to hold my hair out of my face while washing it or doing face masks, but this is infinitely better. The terry-cloth material soaks up any water that I accidentally splash too close to my hair when I'm washing. It holds my short, very fine baby hairs around my hairline out of the way as well. I recommend this to anyone!" —Littlebig

    26. A three-in-one avocado prepping tool for fanning out 'Grammable slices on your avo toast — in no time flat. Sorry buying a house, but I just really love this food.


    The three-in-one functions, you ask? Cut it open with the knife, pop out the pit with the circle in the middle, and slice and scoop with the other end. It *will* save you time — and save your fingers from using a knife to try and stab out the pit.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "Avocado? Yes, Please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well, just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation. The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!" —NPR Man

    27. And an attachable phone handle to finally stop that thing where you're lying down and you drop your phone on your face. That hurts! Also great when you're taking photos — and it's less likely to fall from your grip than a PopSocket, IMO!

    A cracked screen is basically like a shortcut to a middle-of-the-day cry.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in 14 colors).

    Promising review:
    "I can't tell you how many times I have dropped my phone before I got the LoveHandle!!! This even gives me a firm hold on my phone when I'm on the back of the Harley! It was super easy to apply to my phone case. And that adhesive holds like crazy. I'm not worried that it'll come loose or pop off my phone. I love that it has an elastic strap. It allows me to use just one finger in the loop or up to four. I've been using this for a couple months now and I can't imagine not having it. It hasn't stopped me from misplacing my phone but, I haven't dropped my phone once since I got it." —TAMMY L NORRBOM

    28. A five-piece set of rose gold makeup brushes with super soft, densely packed synthetic hair for seamless application and blending. Plus, they'll look gorgeous displayed on your vanity.


    Get the set of five from Amazon for $9.49.

    Promising review: "After seeing these type of makeup brushes plastered all over Instagram, I decided to try them out. They were cheap enough so I figured if I didn't like 'em, no harm really done. Well, I LOVE them. I haven't used my other makeup brushes or my sponge since. The two larger ones I use for liquid foundation and under-eye concealer. The largest one is also fantastic to smooth out & blend your makeup look. The three smaller ones I use to contour and highlight. These work with both powder and liquid. I also feel like these are more sanitary than the beauty blender I was using every day (though I cleaned it often). I can't believe I waited this long to try them!" —Liz

    29. A pair of bag-carrying handles if making trip...after trip...after trip...carrying the groceries home is just not working after you. Want to carry ALL the bags at once (without hurting your hands)? These'll do the trick.

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "My sole complaint about this is that it didn’t exist twenty years ago, because it could have saved me so much aggravation over the years!I am 100% one of those people who would rather dislocate both my arms and have them fall off halfway between my car and front door than make two trips with grocery or shopping bags. Many times I have had thin plastic bag handles sawing through my hands. This could solve one of the most perplexing mysteries of California, too: why there are shopping carts literally everywhere in grocery parking lots EXCEPT the cart returns. People, buy one of these and you can carry all your bags to your car! Also, the trick of twisting them all closed inside your vehicle and not slinging your groceries from side to side when you drive home... brilliant. Buy this amazing hunk of plastic without delay!" —E. Rose

    30. A silicone earbud organizer that'll end the nightmare of tangled cords once and for all, keeping your purse or pocket more organized and helping the wires last longer.


    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in five colors and also in packs of two).

    Promising review: "We all know the frustration of spaghetti tangled cords. This thing is perfect. Wrap around, button in place, done. Holds the whole spaghetti mess neatly and makes it easier to use later. Love it. Bought two, gave one to my sister. She loves hers, too. She uses earbuds, I use these over the ear headphones. Works great on both." —C. Posley

    31. A L'Oreal blowout priming spray that'll cut down your drying time while protecting your hair from heat damage (because your arms don't need a whole workout when you're trying to get ready), all while achieving salon-quality softness.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    Promising review: "I use this every time I blow dry my hair. Even with my thick hair I can have it completely dry in less than five minutes. Leaves the hair feeling smooth and soft. I even find that I don't need to restyle my hair the next day even after sleeping on it." —blackrose

    32. A scalp brush that'll exfoliate and get rid of buildup, help your shampoo do its job better, and stimulate your circulation. Bonus: it'll also feel *really* amazing, like a massage at a fancy hair salon.


    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "It is one of my favorite products I've ever had, and I preach the wonders of this thing to anyone and everyone who will listen. Since purchasing it, I have cut down my use on shampoo and conditioner by HALF. I have long, color treated, mildly damaged hair, so I used to go through shampoo and conditioner like WATER. Now I don't feel so guilty about purchasing more expensive products because this little tool makes it go SUCH a long way. It lathers beautifully, cleans my scalp, and distributes conditioner evenly. Also, the feeling is spine-tingling, literally like having a tiny hair stylist just washing your hair for you. The best part is, it gets my hair SO CLEAN that I don't need to wash as often either, which is the cherry on top. Seriously, do yourself a favor, treat yo' self, and get the thing. You won't regret it." —Allison Brittain

    33. A pair of cactus-shaped dryer balls whose prickles will ensure your laundry dries quicker and gets softer than ever. Those towels that take FOR-E-VER (The Sandlot voice) to dry? No more.

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.50.

    Promising review: "I don't know what kind of sorcery this is, but these things work. It used to take three cycles to dry my comforter and bed sheets. I'm one of those set-it-and-forget-it people, so I'd always forget to turn the dryer back on for round two and three, which meant that at midnight, I'd remember the sheets and comforter were still in the dryer, undoubtedly damp because I didn't run them through the dryer another two times. So I finally bought these puppies and as usual, I dried the comforter and bed sheets once, and forgot to check on them. That night, my husband asked where our sheets were since they weren't on the bed at bed time. Then he groaned, and asked if I remembered to really dry them. So I checked the dryer and lo and behold, they were dry! I have actually remembered to check the dryer once after drying the bed sheets and they were dry as soon as the first cycle was over. So, it's a miracle. These things work. Tl;dr: I'm bad at laundry; these make me good." —Gabby

    34. A super slim and stylish pocket wallet you can attach to your phone so you can stash your ID, credit card, and cash in there and head right out the door. No purse needed!

    Your night out just got a WHOLE lot easier.

    Get them from Amazon for $7.91+ each (available in six colors).

    Promising review: "These are my absolute fave!!!! This is the second one I’ve used. The last one I had lasted on my phone for over a year. Kept my drivers license and credit cards safe right on my phone and they never fell out. The stick is so strong, but don’t buy if you don’t have a plastic cover- it does not stick to those leather/fabric suede type cases unfortunately. It’s so convenient because we take our phones everywhere. Some days I just leave the house with my phone and have everything I need now that I keep my medical card in one of the slots too." —Morgan Berb

    35. A box of slow cooker liners, because the whole *point* of using a slow cooker is that it's supposed to be easy. And not having to scrub yours? That's ~truly~ easy.


    Get a box of six from Amazon for $2.98.

    Promising review: "What was I doing before these bags?! I was probably avoiding the work horse of my kitchen, the slow cooker...because I knew I would have to clean that darn thing after. Even if I screw up and rip the bag while stirring, the mess is NOWHERE near the kind of labor it takes to get that porcelain pot sparkling clean after using the slow cooker bare. It's so good that if I don't have slow cooker bags...then I just won't use the slow cooker. And I'm really glad I found them here on Amazon. My local grocery store is hit or miss with these bags. So, I can't rely on being able to walk into the store to find them. I just buy quite a few at a time, and then watch my stash like a hawk!" —Alicia K.

    36. A pearl sunglasses chain you can add to any pair of sunnies for a grandma-chic look that also happens to be really convenient — no one likes taking out, then putting away their glasses 85 times a day.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    You can check out my full review for all about why I love this chain!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.23 (available in 15 styles).

    Promising review: "Item is exactly as depicted. Arrived quickly. Bead work is attractive. I purchased this chain for my new expensive sunglasses, as I have a history of losing them and this seemed the perfect way to ensure that I won't lose these!" —Amazon Customer

    37. A textured metal spinner ring for a pretty accessory that'll also be fun to play with and may help you stop fidgeting.


    The gold and iridescent rainbow colors are pictured above. Some reviewers not that the ring runs small, so keep that in mind when selecting your size!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 4–12 and in seven colors).

    Promising review: "I bought the gold ring. I have nervous habits, like picking at my skin or fidgeting with other things. This ring has saved me the embarrassment of picking at myself during important meetings or something that's generally uncomfortable. I actually get a lot of compliments on it and make it a personal goal to see how long I can make it spin. It looks like a normal ring for the most part. Most spinners you can spot pretty easily, but this one is great." —Joy

    38. A Feed n Wax Wood conditioner that'll not only polish your pieces but ALSO basically erase years of damage (looking at you, drink rings), bring out the natural color and sheen of your pieces — whether the wood is finished or unfinished — *and* add a layer of protection.

    All you have to do is apply with a cloth, wait 20 minutes (perfect time for a mid-cleaning snack!) and wipe off the excess.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    Promising review: "OMG! This is the most AMAZING product! We inherited some antique furniture from the '30s that had been in storage forever... it was dry and dirty and not much to look at. I used this product on it and the oak wood literally came alive showing the beautiful grain and texture of the wood. I have since used it on my oak kitchen cabinets and they look AMAZING! I will never use anything else other than this product on my wood surfaces! No greasy feel... fantastic smell!" —Tiffany Sadowski

    39. A two-in-one coffee scoop and bag clip, because life before you've actually gotten your caffeine fix needs to be easier. You know, because you haven't actually had your coffee yet.


    Get a set of two from Amazon for $4.99.

    Promising review: "Excellent quality! Not thin or flimsy at all. Great way to keep the scoop handy. I just clip to the bags. Definitely recommend this product!" —Heather Albert

    40. A bleach- and phosphate-free wine-stain remover that'll instantly erase the evidence when you get a little too ~sloshed~.


    It also works on coffee, blood, ink, sauces, and even pet messes!

    Get it from Amazon for $6.61.

    Promising review: "I fell in love with this product some 15 years ago and I am so very happy that it's still available in the same wonderful formula as ever. It has a fantastic citrus scent. This takes care of any stain so fast and efficiently, it's become a party trick. I have seriously poured red wine over a white comforter to demonstrate how great it is to a friend once. It is a miracle in a bottle! We use it for all sorts of cleaning on materials around the house, and one bottle has lasted us years! This is definitely a product every home should have." —Melanie Nolen

    41. A spiral-bound password notebook with plenty of lines for each website for when you've added exclamation points and numbers since last time you logged in... but where?


    And it always happens when you need to do something RIGHT NOW, like...log into HBO Go to catch up on Successtion..

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Promising review: "This was honestly one of the best small purchases I’ve made on Amazon. As someone who’s constantly forgetting their passwords (and would rather have a small physical copy of them somewhere I can easily access and lock up instead of storing them electronically) this was perfect! The alphabetical tabs make it easy to flip through to the page I need, there’s a lot of space for writing all necessary account/password/security question info & it’s small enough to lock away. Love." —Jennifer

    42. A grooming glove designed with nodules on the fingers and palms to make brushing the excess hair from your cat, dog, or even horse more like petting — so your pet won't fidget or get uncomfortable, and your sofa (and clothes!) won't be constantly covered in hair.

    Get each glove from Amazon for $6.99 (available in both left-handed and right-handed versions).

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming - this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    43. And a spud-shaped squeezable stress toy that'll be almost as relaxing as a bowl of mashed potatoes — great for when you're feeling tense after Thanksgiving dinner.


    Get it from Amazon for $7.15.

    Promising review: "This silly and realistic-looking potato ergonomic squeeze toy was the perfect joke gift for kiddo who loves potatoes and jokes about potatoes. Hey, some people like potatoes as much or more than BACON! Give it a squeeze and relieve some stress. Perfect for the couch potato in your life, too." —ScoutMama

    There are worse ways to spend ten bucks.
