    1. A cleaning putty to easily (and kind of fun-ly!) clean your car air conditioner vents, laptop keyboard, cupholders, remote buttons, and any other tricky little areas where dust and crumbs accumulate.

    2. A reusable Revlon oil-absorbing roller stick with a ball made of volcanic stone that sucks the excess shine right off your face. Just pop it out and give it a wash once in a while and you can reuse it over and over and over again!

    3. A set of snazzy-looking and surprisingly affordable wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can jam out to your favorite tunes, nod thoughtfully at your go-to podcast, or simply call into all your Zoom meetings with great sound clarity (and no background noise). They also come with a couple sizes of buds so you can ensure a secure — and comfortable — fit.

    4. Or if you're looking to invest, a pair of Apple Airpods reviewers say are a must if you have an iPhone or other Apple products. They pair easily, stay comfortably in your ears all day, and sound great!

    5. A desktop inflatable tube guy that can teach everyone a dance move or two. Why *couldn't* use the laugh that this thing provides?! Plus it makes a great gift for ::checks list:: just about anyone.

    6. A stylish wood grain essential-oil diffuser to keep the room from drying out, while adding your favorite scent for a little aromatherapy.

    7. A wad preventer, because balled-up sheets that NEVER seem to actually get dry?? Not on my watch! Who has the time?! This genius invention will keep the corners from getting bunched up to increase your tumble and decrease your dry time.

    8. An electric fabric defuzzer because hand-picking all the pills off your favorite sweater, leggings, or sheets is just plain annoying. This under -$15 tool will bring anything back to its former glory!

    9. A faux fur blanket with two sides — one fleece, one furry — so you can customize your heat level while cuddling. You'll feel like you're lounging in Winterfell itself (in the glory days, obv) when bingeing your *current* HBO go-to (uh the upcoming season of Succession, duh!).

    10. A draft stopper you can easily install (just peel and stick!) on your door to keep the heat *inside* your home all winter — and the A/C inside all summer. Bye drafts!

    11. A suede and nubuck brush to freshen up your favorite kicks from last year. It has *four* different surfaces for different cleaning needs so you can tackle any stain.

    A reviewer's black suede boots: the left covered in light brown dirt, the right completely clean and new-looking

    12. 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 two sizes — classic circular patches & large, square patches so you can easily treat and shrink clusters of pimples all at once.

    A reviewer's hand showing the patches: a large square one, and two round ones, both with absorbed pus from pimples

    13. A dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant to remove limescale, rust, grease, and other nasty buildup so your machine runs more efficiently than ever — while you just sit back and relax.

    A before/after of a reviewer's dishwasher, dirty and stained before and shiny and new looking after

    14. A bottle of Downy wrinkle release spray you can just spritz on and magically reveal crease-free clothing when you can't bear to even wait the 90 seconds for your steamer to heat up. There are other things to be done! Plus this smells like ~crisp linen~. Ahhhh.

    A reviewer collage of a really wrinkled blouse before, and much less wrinkled after with text "after only 10 seconds!"

    15. An easy-to-use jewelry cleaning brush for polishing up your brand new or decades-old precious stones and keep them as sparkling as your love still is (awww!). AKA spend less than $8 now and make your diamond look like it cost twice as much.

    16. A drain clearing tool with a rotating handle and five replacement snakes with 4,000 micro hooks and a slim design to shimmy down any drain (you don't even need to remove the cover) and snag all the hairs and goop that's clogging the system — in one quick pull.

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

    18. A deep-cleaning brush duo with a powerful scrubbing head for banishing grout discoloration and a wiping blade to reach the crevices, crannies, and nooks that never get cleaned.

    19. 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.

    A reviewer's table: on top with scuff marks and faded color, on the bottom polished with renewed color and shine

    20. A Clorox toilet wand with disposable scrubby heads *preloaded* with cleaner so you can clean the whole bowl with one hand — and *one* product.

    21. A satin pillowcase to help maintain hair health even as you sleep, reducing pesky frizz and breakage when compared with regular cotton or other fiber pillowcases — that means longer-lasting blowouts and less damage in the long run.

    A model reclining on the pinky-brown satin pillowcase

    22. A multi-pack of breathable, truly seamless undies reviewers say ACTUALLY disappear under clothes feel super soft, and don't roll at the edges. That's a real win.

    23. 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.

    A reviewer's TV: hazier and too bright in some places before, and sharper and clearer with the backlighting after

    24. A FURemover rubber broom that, despite the name, isn't just for those with shedding pets (altho it's great for that) — as one of my BuzzFeed shopping colleague knows first hand, it's also great at getting *human* hair out of carpets.

    25. A bottle of Poo-Pourri to squash beefs (and odors) over who dropped that big stinker in the toilet. This makes the worst bathroom odors a thing of the past — without a weird and heavy "masking" smell.

    The large and small bottles of spray on a toilet, in the original citrus scent

    26. Frank Body's original coffee scrub with an exfoliating blend of coffee grinds (duh), sea salt, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E to soften skin and help fight breakouts without over-drying or feeling too harsh.

    The pouch of scrub, plus a pile of the coarse brown scrub

    27. A hard water stain cleaner reviewers swear by to banish the peskiest dried water stains and soap scum from glass shower doors, faucets, tiles, you name it.

    A reviewer's before and after showing how it removed the water stains from a shower door making it clear again

    28. A five-in-one wine stopper that'll also aerate, filter out cork particles, pour neatly, and re-cork the bottle.

    A bottle resting on its side on a fridge self with the stopper inside

    29. A box of skin-lifting, pore-tightening Skin1004 face masks with results that reviewers swear by — not to mention the fact that it's weirdly fun? The mask tightens as it dries on your face, giving you the titular "zombie" effect. Just wait 15 minutes and rinse to reveal your glowiest glow yet, thanks to the albumin (aka egg white) and aloe formula.

    Reviewer before and after showing the mask made their skin look tighter and reduced the appearance of some wrinkles

    30. A game-changing scrubber (it's basically a scrubby sponge/dishcloth hybrid) that'll dry super quickly, unlike regular sponges, so it cleans all your dishes without getting that horrifically funky mildew smell.

    31. 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!

    32. 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

    33. An Instant Pot for whipping up press-the-button-and-watch-the-magic-happen dishes and meals. Use it to make low-effort rice, pressure cooked dishes, slow-cooked dishes, and so so so so so much more.

    34. A minimalist silverware tray that'll help you save drawer space, make emptying the dishwasher easier and keep the cutlery for becoming ~clutter-ly~.

    35. Glossier's Boy Brow — a brow mascara with a cult following you've heard of a million times — for a reason. It's a three-in-one product that thickens, fills in, and grooms for full and natural-looking brows that last all day.

    A model using the Boy Brow in black

    36. A clip-on strainer made of sturdy BPA-free silicone so you can drain your pasta one-handed! No more overcooked pasta while you try to unearth that giant colander.

    The strainer clipped on a pot so a person can pour out the water with one hand

    37. 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"

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

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

    A reviewer with the mats on two half sheets and one quarter sheet, each topped with roasted veggies

    40. An avocado tool that might sound silly, but is the go-to tool of over 21,000 5-star reviewers who call this an avocado game-changer. It'll slice open the fruit, painlessly (aka no knife needed) pop out the pit, and create perfectly Instagrammable slices.

    The tool with knife, pitter, and sliver

    41. A portable pack of soap sheets, because when public bathrooms run out of soap (especially in times like ::gestures around::) that is *not* a good feeling.

    The paper thin lavender soap sheets, which come in a matchbox size box

    42. A pocket-sized, safer-to-use cutting tool for making small jobs (cutting tape, opening boxes) quicker and easier and tough jobs (that clamshell packaging) less frustrating.

    The cutting tool slicing through packaging tape, blister packaging, plastic bags, and clamshell

    43. 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. Adhesive lint rollers and other devices only WISH they could

    44. A set of honeycomb dividers so you can neatly stow socks, underwear, ties, or scarves without taking up precious drawer space with extra bulk. A more organized drawer = a drawer that can hold more.

    45. The most recent version (it has a built-in light now!!) of the original basic Kindle so you can *instantly download* your next read — either from the Kindle store or from your local library's selection of ebooks. No waiting.

    The Kindle in black with text "holds thousands of books"

    46. A weighted blanket reviewers swear by to help with anxiety, stress, and insomnia. The just-heavy-enough pressure can help you relax and feel comforted enough to drift off.

    47. A truly helpful Squatty Potty, because in the words of an iconic children's book, "Everyone poops!"

    The white Squatty Potty u-shaped stool in front of a toilet

    48. A 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~.

    A collage of six images: the top cracked heels before treatment, the middle mid-treatment, the bottom after lotioning, not cracked  at all

    49. 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"

    50. 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

    51. 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

    52. 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).

    The mixer in six colors

    53. 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.
