    1. A moving alarm clock that'll help you roll out of bed in time to show M who the real boss is.

    youtube.com, Amazon

    This kid needs four AAA batteries, not included.

    Promising review: "What a great design. I think that this alarm clock is very inventive. I set it on the floor away from the bed and when the alarm goes off, the fun begins. It wakes up the whole family. We keep it running until everyone is out of bed. My dog loves it too. He wakes up ready to play, which fills the room with fun in the morning — instead of the normal grumpy mood we all had before." —Harvey Hubbard

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four colors).

    2. An LED fan to keep you cool under pressure when you're trying to beat the clock.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift for my wife. She is delighted with it, which earns it a high rating to begin with. I also like that it works very well and is very simple to use." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    3. A security camera that'll give you a quantum of solace when you're away from home.

    Amazon

    The Nest camera can alert you based on your own specifications. It has a built-in speaker and mic, so you can tell your dog Sparky to get off the couch when you're not around. You can connect the Nest camera with any smart device in your home and it can be set up anywhere.

    Promising review: "These cameras are amazing. The video quality and the viewing angles are great. The biggest benefit to this camera is the software. The app works great and gives you the ability to adjust each camera's settings individually. If you want to temporarily turn a single camera off, just press the toggle in settings. Want video, but no sound? Same thing. You want notifications? No problem. It even allows you to choose which camera you want to be notified about, how, and during what situations." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $171.99.

    4. A pair of flashlight gloves to help you see the light at the end of the undetonated bomb or (more likely) the light at the end of the breaker box.

    Amazon

    Runs on one LR44 battery, included.

    Promising review: "My mom is a mail carrier and in the winter time she is always delivering in the dark. She has tried head lamps and just hates them, but these are perfect. They are fingerless, so she can still grip the mail, and they are super soft. She just grabs the mail like normal and she can now actually see it. They have held up very well and they are super bright. She took them to work and everyone loves them!" —Tausha Jones

    Get them from Amazon for $15.88.

    5. A Wi-Fi-enabled smart plug so you can control your appliances with your voice, wherever you are.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these switches. They are easy to install and the instructions included explain everything. We have one on our front entry that we have programmed to automatically turn on based on sunset and turn off at a specific time. I love that I can turn them on using my Amazon Echo Alexa app. Our lights are set to turn on around 7pm if we are not home, so our dogs don't have to sit around in the dark. I even have one for my pantry light. I often forget to turn it off after retrieving things... instead of having to walk around my kitchen island to go back and turn it off, I can simply say 'Alexa, pantry off' and it is done! I love that we can control the light remotely through our iPhone. This way, people don't know if someone is actually home to turn the light on and off. These work great and they are a real asset to any home. Best switches out there!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    6. A teaching keyboard that'll light up the correct keys to a song so you can play "Skyfall" like a pro, no problem. And if you're in the mood to actually learn something, this connects to teaching apps so you can learn to play the piano all on your own!

    Amazon

    Not to be dramatic, but this keyboard has changed my music-less life. I've wanted to play the piano since I was a kid, even took classes a few times, but I was too darn chatty with the instructors and never learned a note. This changed that, and fast. Using the One Smart Piano app (with your iOS or Android) you can follow along with different "classes" based on your experience level. I couldn't find Middle C when I started using this piano, but after a week of casually playing around with it I could play basic songs and read simple sheet music! I fully credit that to how engaging this system is. The way the app/keyboard work together reminds me a lot of keyboarding classes in school — you play games, my favorite is one like guitar hero, and those are balanced out by in-depth videos and practice tests. This is so much more fun than playing "Itsy Bitsy Spider" in Ms. Smith's stuffy living room.

    Get it from Amazon for $799.99 (available in two colors).

    7. A 24/7 dog tracker that'll let you know what your pooch is doing all day, while also making sure your good boy will be wearing his black-tie best, just like Bond would want.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This brilliant bone-shaped bowtie tracks your dog's activity levels, quality of sleep, distance traveled, calories burned, and overall health from your Fitbit, Apple Watch, Health Kit, or Google Fit device. It's waterproof, fits any size of dog, and has up to a six-month battery life.

    Promising review: "If I could give more than five stars I would! We use three in our dog family and absolutely love them. It’s not only the best activity tracker out there, it has a place to keep a journal along with key medical information. We’re able to graph the dogs' activity and compare it to sleep, show weight gain/loss over time, and so much more. The support within the app is beyond amazing. We’ve sent in questions at the most random times and we ALWAYS get a human response within a few minutes. If you ever need anything, the small but dedicated team is there for you when you need them." —Patrick

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95.

    8. A teeny tiny TSA-approved sound alarm (with ambulance-level noise) so you can scare the living daylights out of anyone who tries to invade ya' space.

    Amazon

    Just pull off the top to activate it!

    Promising review: "I got three of these for my daughters. I feel just a little bit better knowing they are carrying these as they walk across campus or in the mall parking lot." —Zibby

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in four colors).

    9. A dumpling maker for a quick and satisfying snack in between the action — can't beat the bad guys on an empty stomach.

    Walmart

    Get it from Walmart for $6.88 (available in two colors).

    10. A multifunctional Wallet Ninja — it's gonna be the most useful card you can play at the Casino Royale (it's also particularly useful for opening bottles and for emergency screwdriver situations).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I can't believe how many times I find myself using this tool to do everyday tasks that I would have struggled to do before. You don't realize how often you can need a screwdriver or a wrench at a moment's notice. This tool works great, fits in my minimalist wallet perfectly, and I don't have to worry about it cutting the bands of my wallet. It is made of steel, so when using it I don't have to worry about it breaking. It's not gonna happen. I'm confident in this tool and it's construction. A+" —Richard Atchue

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    11. A handheld circuit synthesizer, so you can create your own soundtrack for your daily adventures.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is honestly an amazing piece of engineering. While it looks like a circuit board, it’s incredibly well built and sounds amazing through headphones. There are so many different combinations of sounds, chords, and patterns that I never get tired of this thing. And the battery life is amazing!" —Alex Ama

    Get it from Amazon for $59 (available in two colors).

    12. An automatic pan stirrer – it's gonna satisfy any Silvas out there who particularly love stirring the pot.

    Uncommon Goods

    This is dishwasher safe and runs on four AA batteries, not included.

    Promising review: "I watched a video of a guy making a roux with this gadget and was totally amazed. There were many similar items available online but I chose this one because it has a timer, the blades can go in the dishwasher, and it is sturdy. It works just as advertised. I'm already thinking ahead for Christmas presents!!" —msKATIE

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $25.

    13. A ray gun nose-hair trimmer that'll make Bond wish he had such a clean-cut arsenal collection.

    Amazon

    I got this nose hair trimmer after getting tired of how much work it took to wax my nostrils and I absolutely love it! It looks fun on my counter, works really well, and is easy to keep clean. It requires one AA battery (not included).

    Get it from Amazon for $10.07.

    14. A liquid plastic melding tool to fix all those frayed charging cords, broken household items, undetonated bombs... that sort of thing.

    Amazon

    This can fix circuit boards, toys, glasses, and more. One side spits out a liquid bonder and the other side has a UV light that dries the bond when you're ready to finish up the repair job.

    Promising review: "I bought this to use primarily as an alternative to head cement for my fly tying. I think it's cool how the glue pen is at one end and the UV light is at the other. It's super easy to go from applying the glue to hardening it with the UV light. And it really only takes five seconds or so for the light to harden the resin. For fly tying, it makes a really nice, neat looking head and it holds up great on the river. While I don't think this wasn't its intended use, it works great and I am sure I will use it to fix other things around the house and such. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!" —Devon Hayes

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in two colors).

    15. A water-repellent backpack with a built-in USB charger and cable, a theft-proof combination lock, and enough room to carry everything your heart desires. One look at this and Bond'll know he's been ~schooled~ in the backpack department.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for a trip (because of the built-in USB charger) but when I got back home I've just kept using it! It makes a great laptop bag; all the zippers and straps are well made. It's lightweight but strong, and it fits in a pretty small/compact space. I found I rarely use the portable USB port but I still love that it's there if I need it. I have more often found a need for the battery. I really like the style as well. I may purchase another just so I have it when this one wears out." —Still Shopping

    This is one of our BuzzFeed Reviews picks for best laptop backpacks!

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in seven colors).

    16. A GoPro to record all your "jumping off a boat over a helicopter onto a moving train" antics. Or just to use the next time you're snowboarding.

    Amazon

    This GoPro has built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. It is capable of 1440p30, 1080p60, and 720p100 video. It captures 8MP single photos, 10fps burst photos, and 0.5 to 60 second time-lapse photos. It's also waterproof... so feel free to cry tears of joy all over this treasure.

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this! Whether shooting underwater or above ground, this handy device is at my side constantly. The picture quality is also amazing, which surprised me since I am used to shooting with DSLR. I'm heading to the beach this week and I will be using this for beach photos — I can't wait to see how they turn out. I just love this product." —Jessica M. Cavaliere

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    17. An Apple Watch that'll do way more than Bond's Rolex.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "To be honest, I'm shocked at how much I love this watch. In fact, I can't go without it anymore. I love being able to read my texts and get notifications on my watch. It's so much easier than having to pull my phone out of my pocket every time I get a text or a phone call. Instead, I just look at my watch. It's great talking through it, and people tell me that they can hear me better when I talk through it than through my phone. There are also so many apps available to make life easier. I'm so glad I purchased this item!" —Jack Rainbolt

    Get it from Amazon for $249.99+ (available in four colors and two sizes).

    18. A 3D pen kit to let out your creative side on a craft table instead of a poker table.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    This kit includes the "3Doodler Start 3D Pen," two mixed-color packs of "Eco-Plastic" (48 strands), a micro-USB charger, and an activity guide.

    Promising review: "I'm in creativity overload! This bought the creative side I've been trying to find in my 9-year-old to the surface and he's hooked. We played consistently for six hours with only one extra charge needed. I'm hooked myself! This is all around family fun!" —Menke0408

    Get it from Amazon for $42.67.

    19. A smart grip mug for anyone who takes their "shaken, not stirred" drinks seriously.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for my younger brother, who has the knack for spilling drinks. This review is half a year late but I wanted to determine the durability of the suction at the bottom of the mug, and let me say that it still feels brand new. I have recommended this to everyone who is looking for a gift. Trust me, you will play around with this mug for a good ten minutes trying to knock it down; it is almost mesmerizing at times. It is a great conversation starter as well. I congratulate Mighty Mug for creating the ultimate mug." —Richard Gomez

    Get it from Amazon for $14.69+ (available in six colors and two sizes).

    20. A cell phone attachment that'll make sure your doggo takes a selfie so cute, she'll end up being cast in the first dog-themed Bond movie, Homeward Bond.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is such a great product! I'm constantly taking pictures of my dog and he is rarely ever looking directly at the camera. Since receiving this product, I have not taken a single picture of him without him looking directly at me (or should I say, at the squeaky ball at the top of my phone). I love this product!!!" —Dishy24

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. A magic soap odor remover to rid yourself of the stubborn smell of garlic and onion without it ever running out. Because diamonds are forever, and so is this soap.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two of these. One for the kitchen for post smelly garlic and onion chopping. Then one for the shower, for pits and other parts! These things really work and use no harsh cleansers or chemicals!" —Mgmt Ninja

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    22. A smart notebook that can download your notes and then erase everything with a microwave — totally worth testing out, I mean, you only live twice.

    Amazon

    Apparently this is not science fiction, it's real life. Simply download the Rocketbook App to scan your content. After that, pop this thing in the microwave (up to five times) and your notes will all clear! It works with any pen, marker, or highlighter from the Pilot Frixion line (one pen is included).

    Promising review: "I love this notebook! I'm in school so it comes in handy when I need to take notes. All I need to do is write my notes down in the notebook then upload it to my Amazon fire tablet. I also love the fact that I can delete the things that I need to delete by placing it in the microwave. It's super awesome! Highly recommend this book especially of you're in school. It'll save so much money on notebooks and spirals! Excited to use this further in my studies." —Lauren A.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    23. A brilliant AeroGarden with a look so sleek it's gonna have as much ~herb~ appeal as the Casino Royal itself.

    Macy's

    This uses energy-efficient LED lights that automatically turn on and off and it has feed/water reminders to help keep your herbs, you know, alive. It also includes Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, mint, thyme, Thai basil, and Miracle-Gro plant food. Be sure to read our full review of the AeroGarden!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's, for $189.99 (available in two colors).

    24. A moldable mount to hold on to your every appliance, and your every word.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for. I had been wanting to play my Nintendo Switch in bed without having to hold up the entire console. This mount allows me to have the screen hover above my head while my arms and neck can relax. This is the ultimate tool for my laziness and I love it." —Michael K.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two colors).

    25. An eye massager that plays music, blows gentle air, heats up, and can help your tired eyes relax after a day binge-watching all seven Sean Connery-Bond films.

    Amazon

    This eye massager has a built-in speaker and uses vibrations, heat treatments, and air pressure to gently massage your eyes while increasing circulation and relieving stress and tension. It also has a sleeping mode, massaging your eyes for 15 minutes to help you fall asleep. A full charge takes about three and a half hours.

    Promising review: "This is a great eye massager! I am the kind of person who uses my cell phone and computer most of the day. I use this eye massager right before I go to bed to reduce eye strain. It also works great on my dark circles. On top of this, it is not heavy at all. It's very easy to travel with, and I travel frequently." —epic!

    Get it from Amazon for $75.99.

    26. A brush cleaner — no spy is gonna ~brush off~ a clean skincare routine after a day in disguises.

    Amazon

    You simply charge it via USB, throw your brushes in one at a time, then choose one of three speeds to spin it in the glass bowl.

    Promising Review: "When I use liquid foundation and get them REALLY dirty I have to scrub them down before I wash them but the machine gets them cleaner than I could after. The most important thing is that it DRIES them ASAP. I don't want damp or even wet brushes that I can't use — this solves that problem! The speed variability makes it so all my brushes are perfect! Never blown out. All of my brushes worked in this, even the ones that I thought would not — the ones that have diamond-shaped or flat handles, or ones where the brush head is asymmetrical. Keeping your brushes clean means having cleaner skin and more sanitary cosmetics." —L

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    27. A UV phone sanitizer that could lower your chances of getting sick — Bond can beat Blofeld, but he doesn't stand a chance against the common cold.

    UncommonGoods

    Promising review: "My sweet sister is always wiping everything with disinfecting cloths. When I first saw this I knew without a doubt that she would love to have it. She gets a real kick out of putting her phone, ballpoint, oral thermometer, and whatever will fit in for a "bath". She is so proud of it that she shows it to everyone. She said that this is the best gift I have ever gotten for her." —Gary

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $59.95.

    28. A touch-free vacuum, because after you see how clean your floors are with this thing, you'll know it was worth every (money) penny.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This stationary vacuum works as a powerful electric dustpan. It's infrared sensors detect dirt, dust, hair, and debris. It's easy to use, and has a bagless system. No need to refill!

    Promising review: "I have two long-haired dogs, a cat, and my boyfriend and I both have long hair. This vacuum FAR exceeds my expectations. My husky is blowing her coat right now, meaning I'm sweeping the house twice a day. As a test, I brushed her inside and collected the fur from half of her body into one pile. Watch the video (GIF above) to see the vacuum make short work of it." —Rachel Senterfeit

    Get it from Amazon for $129 (available in two colors).

    29. A secret key chain so you can drive with a license to kill (LOL JK this is useful to open packages with).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is perfect to put on your key chain. It gives you a little peace of mind and is also pretty useful when you want to open packages." —Pikachu

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in six colors).

    30. A sunrise alarm clock for anyone who wants an alarm that's for your eyes only.

    Amazon

    Okay sure, this also has speakers with some delightful nature sounds that can wake you up if that's your thing. But the best is still the light — it has 10 different light settings! I'd pick waking up to a subtle sunrise every time.

    Promising review: "I am the multiple alarms type of person because when that horrible ring erupts in my bedroom every morning, I hit snooze immediately. I hit snooze multiple times and usually end up freaking out by the last alarm and running to get ready in time. This makes mornings unenjoyable and sets a sour mood for the day. I'm 26, a teacher, and have been like this my entire life. Until I got this amazing light! I wake up before the radio starts. It's a lovely way to wake up and truly the best money I've spent on Amazon (which is a lot). I get up earlier now and am much more pleasant for the rest of the day." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $82.57.

    31. A four-pack of LED smart bulbs that'll turn your lights on whenever you want, even if you're not home — a seriously ~bright~ idea when you don't want people creeping on your place when you aren't around.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I started automating my house a couple months ago and began with these lights in my living room. I absolutely love them! I replaced incandescent bulbs with these and what a difference they have made! Once they are connected to the same network as your Alexa/Siri, it's as simple as following the instructions on your phone. I have these set to different scenes and timers throughout the house, depending on time of day, leaving or coming home, bedtime, waking up, and more. These are a great way to simplify life." —Brian Reid

    Get them on Amazon for $49.99.

    32. A waterproof, Bluetooth-enabled speaker so you can blast your theme song from the teak deck of your megayacht.

    Amazon

    This also boasts a 10-hour battery life!

    Get it from Amazon $69.99 (available in 13 colors).

    33. A grip strip that'll hold your stuff whenever you've come up with a brilliant plan and have gotta stick to it.

    awin1.com

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

    34. A see-through Swiss Army knife, because having a tool this useful is worth showing off.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this knife. It's small, versatile, durable, and is so incredibly handy. The best part (for me) is its size. It's small enough to go on my key chain so I can take it with me everywhere I go. I also love the fact that it has a can opener, which can be an absolute lifesaver if you are camping. I don't think it gets much better than this." —adidab14

    Get it from Amazon for $26.10 (available in twelve colors).

    35. A critter catcher for anyone out there who believes all crawling critters deserve the utmost re-spectre.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "'I am alive because of critter catcher.' — a large hairy spider" —E. Jorgensen

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    36. A robotic mop that'll clean up any evidence M16 wouldn't want left behind... or any evidence that shows your new puppy hasn't fully embraced being house trained just yet.

    Amazon

    Just charge the battery pack every so often and it'll take care of the rest!

    Promising review: "Instead of the random-seeming 'bump and go' action that other robotic cleaners have, this follows a pattern, zigging and zagging across the floor. It covered the entire floor and hugged all the edges consistently in the three rooms I tested it in. When it bumped from the kitchen floor to the dining room carpet, it detected that and avoided spraying water and trying to mop there. You can even power it up a special way to tell it 'never go behind where you start' so if you want to clean just half of a large room, the unit will only clean what is in front of it. Clever. I enjoy watching TV while robots take care of the housework." —Allen C. Huffman

    Get it from Amazon for $174.84 (and two extra washable, reusable cleaning pads for $14.47).

    37. A portable door lock so you can add some extra security in seconds, without a single tool in sight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a well constructed product that is easy to install. I am an older female who recently traveled alone and used it in two different hotel rooms. The deadbolt in one of the hotel rooms did not seem to fit properly so I was especially glad to have this device to use. Before I purchased it, my concern was if it could be easily removed in case of a fire. The answer is YES. The design is really pretty simple but ingenious." —DJH

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

    38. A neck massager – it's something you are ~knot~ gonna want to pass up after a day fighting crime... or fighting the urge to leave the office before 5pm.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this product hoping like hell that it would give some kind of relief. OOH I love it. I have been wanting someone to squeeze the back of my neck and lean on my shoulders, and I feel like I got that in the form of a device. I feel so much relief. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it shuts off after 15 minutes so that it does not overheat. I like it, it serves the purpose for what I needed. It is very easy to use, very comfortable, and you can add as much or as little pressure as you like when you put your arms in the slings provided. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do." —gee gee

    Get it from Amazon for $38.24+ (available in two colors).

    39. A purifying fan — owning any product designed by Sir James Dyson (who is basically Q IRL) can help you breathe easier. This one just does it literally.

    Amazon

    This purifying fan can clean an entire room with a 350 degree oscillation. It automatically senses and reports air quality levels on its LCD display and captures pollutants in the air.

    Promising review: "Do you even know what you're breathing in? I didn't. I feel so stupid for not buying this thing much much earlier. I've been so knowledgeable about my air quality since I got this air purifier. It lets me know the quality of my air immediately. It does such a good job of keeping my air clean. No annoying noises, no breaking down, the filters can last more than year, and it connects to my phone!! That is the best part!! I can literally see a graph of my air quality, which keeps me constantly updated on how things are going.

    Buy this thing, you will not regret it." —Chase

    Get it from Amazon for $449.

    40. A portable projector, because you used to think you couldn't get a good picture from a portable projector, but after using this you'll never say never again.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this projector. I've tested it out in a few different areas at home with different lighting and it always looks good. I was very surprised by how loud the speaker is. My kids love it too. So far we've watched videos with it and I've used it for work while doing a presentation off my tablet. Everything runs great on it and I love how compact it is." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

    41. And finally, a treat-dispensing pet camera for anyone out there who wants a remote, explosive detonator... but just the kind that shoot dog treats.

    Amazon

    You can read more about this product in this BuzzFeeder's review.

    Promising review: "I was always concerned leaving my puppy home alone because he will cry a lot. When I got Furbo, things got much better! Furbo sent me notifications to my phone when he was crying, so I would log on and talk to him right away. This changed everything!! My puppy knows I'm always there, so his separation anxiety is getting better. He cries less, and I feel much more relieved." —KUEI CHIH SUN

    Get it from Amazon for $199.
