    3. An electric tower heater to heat any room in your home and ensure you can rest well and wake up refreshed to get to work.

    Walmart / Via Walmart

    Promising Review: "I’ve only been using it for two weeks, but I love it. It's stable and a remote that comes with the batteries. Works well for my bedroom. It has little vents on the front that 'oscillate,' if you will. Love that feature as well. So far I’m loving it." —Crystal

    Price: $74.40

    4. An electric drill that'll encourage you to finally tackle that weekend project you've been thinking about for months.

    Walmart / Via Walmart

    Promising Review: "This is great drill for projects around the house. It's big enough to do the job and small enough for a woman's hands. It's a little on the heavier side but not that bad to the point where it would be difficult to use. It comes with a bit for Phillips one side and Slotted on the other side." —CRidgeway

    Price: $48.88

    5. A lightweight shelving unit to properly pack bulky items in your basement, garage, workshop or anywhere you might benefit from having vertical storage.

    Walmart / Via Walmart

    Promising review: "Exactly what I needed! Very sturdy. For a 61-year-old lady who is not used to putting things together like this it went together easily after I got the bottom together. All I needed was a hammer to make sure the joints were seated properly. I would buy again, and definitely recommend this unit."—Tina

    Price: $59.88

    8. An easy-to-start lawn mower you'll love because it precisely cuts grass and can be easily maneuvered into tight spaces.


    Promising review: "My son took it out of the box, fixed the handle, put oil then put gas and set the deck height. It started up after a few pulls and runs great. We had some tall grass in the hay field a little over a foot tall and it blazed right through it! He is impressed and for a 14-year-old that is pretty good!" —LAmom

    Price: $168

    9. A toilet paper holder with a small shelf for your cell phone so you can do your business without fear of dropping your most beloved possession in the toilet.

    Price: $19.96

    13. A paint set to spruce up items lying around the house or for your next craft day.

    Promising review: "The boxes were easy to assemble and I used them to store books and other objects as I had the interior of my home painted and needed to store the smaller items. I have since unpacked everything and disassembled the boxes. Easy to store and will use again either for household or office use. The prices at Walmart were less than at other retailers for the same quality." -DianeS

    17. An ergonomic keyboard to help you a better typing experience and *hopefully* less wrist pain.


    Promising review: "Very nice keyboard, simple and to the point, plug and play, was working like a clockwork immediately after having been plugged in. I do online blogging that involves lots of typing, and this keyboard is perfect for my needs. I just needed a basic functionality that this Logitech keyboard delivered." —happeeeface

    Price: $9.99

    18. A fireproof box you can use to store your important documents and keep them neatly organized.


    Promising review: "I thought this safe wasn't going to be sturdy enough! My strong football son had to lift the safe and place it where I wanted it. I love the key feature; don't have to memorize another password. Big enough for all my important papers and MOM stash!" —Paper Towel Queen

    Promising review: "This shredder will shred up to 8 pages of paper and the motor seems to have more torque because it doesn't rely as much on speed to shred as the 6-page shredders. It is also quieter than most shredders in this price range. I do wish it had wheels on the bottom of the storage hopper though." -Al

    Price: $37.99

    22. A set of noise-cancelling headphones to drown out unwanted distractions!


    Promising review: “The noise cancellation is very, very good. In fact, it is too good in some cases. Where many noise-cancelling products are able to cancel droning and repetitive sounds, the QuietComfort 35 II headphones were able silence radio and television audio and even humans talking directly to me. So noise cancellation is truly excellent.” —mikerisner

    Price: $279+ (available in three styles)

    23. A magnetic white board so you can make note of groceries to buy as soon as you discover you're nearly out of sugar.

    Promising review: "Love this Fitbit! It works with Alexa, which is such a wonderful addition to Fitbit. Tracks steps, sleep, heart rate, exercise, etc. Text messages and calls come through and you can respond with voice to text! AMAZING! Can't say enough positives about this Fitbit! Go get one!" —AshFen

    Price: $199.95 (available in three colors)

    Price: $19.48 (available in four colors)

    28. A cool coffee pot – it'll get you up and going and looks stylish too.
