    42 Products You Didn't Know You've Been Dreaming Of

    An adult swaddle, zombie gardening sign, portable air conditioner, and 39 other seriously dreamy things.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An adult swaddle – a comforting cocoon for anyone who needs a little extra help relaxing and who won't mind taking the term "sleep tight" seriously.

    Hatch Sleep

    I recently replaced my weighted blanket with a Sleep Pod and I am never going back. I appreciated the comfort that I got from a weighted blanket, but it was so hot I wasn't able to last under it for long. It was also so heavy I couldn't take it with me anywhere. This design solves those problems. The fabric is breathable and so lightweight that I can comfortably use it in the summer and throw it in my tote bag on vacations. I feel calm and comforted every time I get in. I've used it while napping, while trying to calm down before going to bed at night, and while sitting on the sofa and needing some extra stress relief when binge-watching Chernobyl got too stressful. I can't rave enough about this thing, but I'll certainly keep trying!

    Promising review: "For a lifelong sufferer of miserable Restless Leg Syndrome, this is nothing short of a miracle! I was skeptical that the pod could help me, since nothing else has ever helped me, but I think since the pod contains my thrashing movements, I’m not waking myself up over and over at night. My dreams are typically very vivid and I usually don’t feel like I had a chance to turn my mind off and disconnect. I think I am getting more REM sleep with the pod because I haven’t remembered my dreams these past four nights. Also, I run hot so it’s a pleasant surprise that the pod truly is breathable and not sweaty." —Jennifer C

    Get it from Hatch Sleep for $99+ (available in two sizes).

    2. A sock pairing system so you can attach your socks in pairs and keep them that way, even while they're being washed, saving you ~loads~ of time whenever you do a load of laundry.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These work. They are of good quality construction. I had a sock problem, and these have stopped the unexplained disappearance of socks. Obviously, the sock monster can't swallow the Sock Dock full of socks, only single socks." —A.D. Burnette

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in four colors).

    3. A microwave panini press that's gonna make your food taste like grilled perfection with one click of the "popcorn" button.

    Amazon

    Okay, maybe don't use the popcorn button with this. But it's definitely that easy! This clever gadget absorbs microwaves and cooks food from the hot tray bottom, making your food cook like it would on a grill plate. It can be used on sandwiches, meats, and vegetables. Be sure to preheat it before cooking!

    Promising review: "This is a great product. It met the expectations – it's easy to use and gives good results. My daughter uses it on her college dorm where toasters are not allowed. It's easy to clean and fits a small, 600 watts microwave." —Jose L. Salinas-Gonzalez

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    4. A floral toilet scrubber that'll make cleaning your toilet far more pretty and much less shi... not pretty.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29 or get a funny one from Amazon for $25.99.

    Get it from Wall Candy Co. on Etsy for $34.99 (available in 28 colors).

    6. A Freshly meal plan because you know that "preheat the oven to 400" is essentially gonna be certain death in your apartment from July–September.

    Freshly

    I really do love this stuff! I've been eating Freshly meals for months. This is the first meal subscription (and hi hello I've tried them all) that I haven't gotten tired of. They have fantastic year-round and seasonal meals, with portion sizes that will actually fill you up. They all take under four minutes to make and require zero prep. I've all but forgotten how my oven works at this point and I'm not mad.

    Get it from Freshly for $8.99+/meal (available in multiple subscription options).

    7. A pool float tea steeper so you can really get the tea while enjoying your entire summer by the pool.

    Amazon

    Your bumper will thank you profusely.

    Promising review: "I bought these for mine and my mom's car a while back ago and these little things are great. Since I got 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, and it's helpful when I parallel in the city." —Mariam Abass

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97+ (available in three styles).

    10. A mesh hanging clothes dryer so you can keep your chicest pieces in a clean and convenient place while they dry. Now you can finally see what your radiator looks like without damp clothes hanging over it 24/7.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the greatest item ever! It came just as described, but better!! I used to lay an extra a towel on the floor and things would take days to dry. This is so awesome because the air can circulate. I could have used the one with three shelves years ago. I always have something that needs to lay flat. This is worth a hundred dollars to me." —Betty Lou Armstrong

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in 10 styles).

    11. A pack of four treatment gel patches sure to soothe and hydrate your under-eyes and help prevent puffiness and darkness, no matter how late you stay out on the weekends. Why waste time on actual beauty sleep when you can buy it?

    Tarte

    Throw these in the fridge before you use them for a little extra brightness and smoothness.

    Promising review: "I adore these eye patches! I got these as a gift for Mother's Day and I was beyond excited to try them. They left my under eye skin feeling smooth as butter! The patches really seemed to help with my dark circles as well." —LunarLizzy

    Amazon

    This works with three to eight players and is intended for people 21+ (because, you know, the law).

    Promising review: "FANTASTIC GAME! I already plan on buying the expansions. My friends and I have added Suddenly Drunk to our regular game nights and it never fails to make us laugh! Friends even call ahead of time to make sure I am bringing my deck with me." —Jax I

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    13. A mini skillet so you can make a single-serving dish without having to clean out a massive pan.

    Amazon

    This has over 11,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this tiny skillet. I am a graduate student and pretty much cook for myself. This is the perfect size for baking and for learning to cook with cast iron. Other plans for this little guy include individual (side-dish sized) biscuit-pizzas, meat/cheese-stuffed biscuits, skillet cookies, gingerbread, monkey-bread, and maybe mini-pies. For study breaks during the rest of summer, I anticipate working on developing individual-sized recipes for this guy." —MCP

    Promising review: "Best stuff ever. I have an ancient porcelain kitchen sink and it was scratched, stained, dingy, and icky. The only reason I hadn't replaced it is that I was waiting to redo the entire kitchen. One application of Bar Keeper's Friend and some light elbow grease later, the sink is white, pristine, stain and scratch-free." —P

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $9.97 (available in four sizes).

    16. A set of four drawer organizers – they're gonna make your shelves look like an A-type's paradise.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this product, it has helped me keep everything in its place. It's so much easier to see your stuff in the drawer then when it is all piled up on top of each other. I now have a place to put things back, and I know where to find them the next time I need them. They also make your drawers look really sharp!!" —Mom of 3

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $14.87 (available in gray and brown).

    17. Or a shirt folder that'll give you a dresser full of perfectly crisp and beautifully folded shirts in a matter of minutes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My first reaction was 'Why did I buy this?' when I opened the box and wasn't too convinced by the way it looked. Then I gave it a try with a couple shirts I had just washed and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat, and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game changer this is. It's a must try! I am in love with how beautiful it leaves my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors).

    18. A quilted chenille floor pillow for anyone in an apartment so small, pillows are certainly an acceptable form of furniture.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This comes just as pictured and described. It is comfortable and looks luxurious. It's great for floor seating." —AKhan

    Get it from Amazon for $36.47+ (available in four colors).

    19. A magic tap to help kiddos get drinks on their own without having to do any heavy lifting — you won't have to cry over spilled milk ever again.

    Amazon

    I have zero kids but I still want seven of these just for me.

    Promising review: "This is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! My kids love it and now our milk doesn’t get left on the counter because it never leaves the fridge. It is so easy to attach and to wash. I will never be without one again. I can’t recommend this enough and I can’t wait to get one for my sister and her little kiddos!" —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $11.01.

    20. A portable air conditioner for anyone who has exactly zero ~chill~ when it comes to staying in places without AC.

    Amazon

    This cools down small spaces fast using a chilly, humidifying fan. Fill it with ice-cube chilled water and enjoy a fast-acting purifying freeze in ya face. It has a small water tray to prevent leaks, a handle so you can carry it easily, and includes a charging cable.

    Promising review: "I'm really impressed with this air filter. The build quality is great and the design shows lots of attention to detail. For example, not only does the unit have a sleep mode that slows the blower down to make it super quiet, but that also turns off the large, bright indicator light on the front of the unit. It has some other great features like a timer, a child lock to thwart button pressing toddlers, and an automatic mode. There is even a little handle recess on the back to pick it up and carry it around. They really thought of everything. Filter access is simple, grab the front panel at the top on both sides and it flips down and off. I'm very happy with my purchase!" —DF2000

    Get it from Amazon for $46.99.

    21. A tufted linen storage ottoman that'll look absolutely lovely in your living room (despite all the things you frantically toss in it when people hang out in said living room).

    Amazon

    I've used this ottoman as a hidden litter box in my apartment for ages. When I got it, I cut out a small space for my cats to get in and out and filled it with everything I needed to keep their space clean. It's big enough to hold the litter box, box of litter, scoops, rubber mats, and a charcoal deodorizer, with enough space between each end that litter rarely tracks out onto the floor. It's the best choice I've ever made for my apartment. It looks so nice in the hallway that people always sit on it, with no idea what horrors lie beneath.

    Promising review: "This is well worth the cost. It's so roomy and sturdy! We have to have something at the foot of our bed for our small dog to use as a step up. I keep all of my boots in here and all of my husband’s sleep machines and we still and have plenty of room left over. It would hold a ton of blankets, or pillows, or toys, or a lot of just about anything. It’s so sturdy I’ve stood on it to straighten my curtains." —LesaRock

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in seven colors and three sizes).

    22. A peel-and-stick wall mural you can place over every hole and scratch the previous tenants left in your apartment. They also separate into individual pieces, so feel free to throw these flowers botanic-all over the house!

    Amazon

    This set includes six peonies in varying sizes and fourteen leaves.

    Promising review: "I was unable to track the package, but it arrived when it was expected. The flowers are absolutely lovely. I could not be happier with the purchase. They’re the perfect size. They were easy to peel and stick on the wall. I only had an issue with one of them coming off, but I expected it since the flower was so big and I was doing it by myself. I love that the two large peonies were different colors. I definitely would recommend and purchase again." —Amber

    Get it from Amazon for $69.

    23. A Sriracha keychain that's gonna add a little spice to your life, even when you're on the go.

    Amazon

    It comes empty so don't forget to fill it up!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.23.

    24. A pair of training utensils that'll help your wee babe enhance their fine motor skills so they can actually feed themselves when they insist on feeding themselves.

    Amazon

    The company also makes double sided toothbrushes to keep your little eater's teeth clean.

    Promising review: "My six month old figured these out very quickly. I am following baby led feeding and they work really well with foods that aren’t puréed. He can feed himself without the utensils choking him. Great idea, and they are definitely like training wheels for regular utensils!" —Puppenstein

    Get them from Amazon for $14.95.

    25. A spill-safe cabinet mat with a lip guard and a raised surface sure to protect your cabinets (and the things you store in it) from leaks and spills.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We are very pleased with our new mats. They are excellent quality and fit as described by the seller. The mats are going to be perfect to protect the painted surface of our laundry room cabinet interiors from scuffing, as well as stains from cleaning and detergent containers. They have a nice, deep and sturdy lip to contain accidental spills. I wish we had installed them years ago. We will order more for bathroom cabinets and other uses. This is the perfect liner for cabinets." —amazonshopper

    Get it from Amazon for $47.95 (available in two colors).

    26. A botanical LipDrink balm that's gonna keep your lips smooth and hydrated and add a subtle color to your barely-there makeup vibes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is seriously the best lip balm you could ever buy. It will repair your dry, peeling, cracked, or red/irritated lips and it will keep them nice and soft. I've tried every balm out there and this one isn't like any other I've ever used. You won't ever get another lip balm after using this one." —deborah

    Get it from Amazon for $17 (available in seven colors).

    27. A pair of unbearably chic leather dress shoes inspired by basketball sneakers, for savvy folks who know how to ~sport~ a solid fashion statement.

    Rafter Club

    Get them from Rafter Club for $375 (available in four styles and sizes 7–17) or get a more traditional dress boot from Amazon for $59.99 (available in two colors and sizes 7–17).

    28. An AeroGarden that'll be a truly fool-proof way to grow fresh herbs outside of a garden and inside of your fifth-floor walkup.

    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!

    Promising review: "I am really enjoying my AeroGarden. First, its narrow clean design fits into my kitchen well. Of the six seedlings, only the mint didn’t grow, but I have more dill and basil than I can use some weeks. I was apprehensive about the “every two week clean out”, but it is very easy; it only takes 5 minutes. I like it better than my “click & grow”, which is not hydroponic. I just bought another to give to my sister as a gift. It's a great product! And thank you for the great price Macy’s!" —LDianeP

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

    29. A hair repair treatment that was condi-ment for anyone who bleaches, dyes, or styles their hair to their heart's content.

    Amazon

    Don't worry, it smells like vanilla. Not mayo/death.

    Promising review: "I purchased this after reading the reviews on here. I recently had my already double processed and highlighted hair highlighted again, and the colorist way over processed and bleached my hair — it was so damaged and dry. I was practically crying. I was looking online to find a mask to help my poor hair recover. I have to say I've used so many different products and none have given instant results the way this has. I thought it smelled lovely like vanilla! I left it on for five minutes and my hair was so much better. I tried it again a week later and my hair keeps getting softer and more manageable. I would highly recommend this if you have damaged, dry hair." —GP

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    30. A set of cooling sheets that'll regulate your body temperature and keep you from ~sweating it~ when you try to fall asleep in the thick summer heat.

    My Sheets Rock

    I got these sheets for my guest bed — my living room runs really hot in the summer and I wanted sheets that'd keep guests cool. But after sleeping on them once, I knew I needed a set for myself. I sleep hot and, even though the company has targeted these for men, they are exactly what I needed to keep my body heat at bay when I sleep.

    Get them from My Sheets Rock for $129+ (available in five colors and six sizes) or get a different set from Amazon for $78.95+ (available in three colors and 10 sizes).

    32. A pack of anti-nausea pops – they may save the day when your stomach decides it's sick and tired of digesting.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I cannot rave enough about these. I even got my OBYGN to start carrying them in her office. They really work with my system to help ward off feelings of nausea, which I get now that I am in menopause. The natural flavors taste good (some are a bit spicy but I don't mind that) and within a few minutes, the nausea feelings start to go away. I do find that I have to finish the entire sucker or I start to feel nauseous again. But I'm a lifetime Queasy Pops user now." —thejoysofraisingboys

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $10.96.

    33. A dog water bottle so your K-9 can get some easy H20 on the go.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Our black lab goes with us almost everywhere. We were on vacation and saw someone had this for their dog. They recommended it so we purchased it. Wherever we go people ask us about it. It's convenient, easy to use, nonbreakable, and spill proof. We use it while hiking, walking in town, on our boat, and while traveling in the car. I highly recommend it!" —Mark R. Bentlage

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven colors).

    34. An inflatable beer pong table for anyone who wants their pool party to be a real party.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love products that solve problems and this is definitely one of them. Before receiving this table, there was a constant dilemma of should I play beer pong or should I go swimming. Thanks to this product I can now move on to other life problems." —Jeff C.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    35. A pair of blue light blocking glasses that'll considerably ease eye strain if you feel like you have screen time all the time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in seven colors).

    36. A microwave steamer to cook veggies, fish, poultry, and rice in minutes. This thing is sure to make (micro)waves.

    Amazon

    Its steam release vent ensures splatter-free heating *and* the middle of the basket stays cool so you can lift your food without risk.

    Promising review: "I used this steamer for the first time today. I cooked fresh steamed vegetables in it. It did a terrific job. It cooked every bit as well as my counter top steamer and was a lot faster to clean after use. The vegetables retained their flavor and cooked perfectly. The texture was perfect, also. I fixed cabbage, carrots, and large brussel sprouts. There was more than enough room. I could have easily fit in more vegetables. I'm very pleased with this product!" —Tuxedo Cat

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    37. A carpet shampoo for anyone who has been ignoring the mysterious stain on their carpet for far too long.

    amazon.com

    The (citrus scented!) stain-removing formula lifts dirt and residue on cloth, carpet, and upholstery and gets rid of any lingering bad odors.

    Promising review: "This stuff is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! I posted before-and-after photos (above) for you to see for yourself! My 1996 Toyota Camry is 23 years old — this is the original carpet! It took me exactly three hours to clean this carpet and I will tell you this: IT WAS WORTH IT!" —treylee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    38. A cool-sleeping Tuft & Needle mattress with sturdy, adaptive foam that'll help you fall into a deep sleep every day. Well, every night.

    Amazon

    Some reviewers mention a lingering packaging smell after opening. If you are sensitive to smells, just give this some time to air out before sleeping on it and you'll be good to go!

    Promising review: "I read most of the 10,000 reviews before buying this. I bought our last bed here on Amazon and it was great. This bed is better than great. The smell was gone in about three hours. It expanded in about 20 minutes to near full size and by bedtime it was in full form. It has firm edges that are very sharp and well shaped! Sleeping on it as a 270 pound 6 foot tall man, I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. I have three bad disks and it has been hard to sleep on my side. This bed allowed me to sleep on my side! There are not hard spots or pressure points at all for me. I am amazed! This is totally worth the money. This is a superior bed and worth every penny!" —Nash Guide

    Get it from Amazon for $350+ (available in six sizes).

    39. A cookie shot kit so you can have a shot of something sweet when you really need it.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.10.

    40. A heated pillow massager for anyone who does ~knot~ handle traffic well and needs something that's sure to distract them from those mercilessly clogged intersections.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Buy this! I got this as a gift from my amazing girlfriend who knows I complain about my neck all the time. We took a chance on this after I saw it and said I wanted it — after reading some other reviews I definitely agree that this is amazing. I was a little hesitant at first but once it arrived I wasn't disappointed at all. It does take some time getting use to as with anything, but it's very quick to learn your sweet spots and how to set it up in your car. It requires a connection to your 12v outlet to be powered, but other than that it's good. It is extremely durable, I'm highly surprised at the build quality and the quality of the rollers, heating, and motors. It seems like it'll last a long while with much usage, especially for the price." —Brendan S.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    41. An over-the-sink dish drying rack because losing all your counter space to drying dishes can be a real ~drip~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to assemble this rack. It's not flimsy. The quality is very sturdy. It fits over my large sink and is adjustable so I'm assuming it can fit most sinks. It's got a lot of holders in various sizes so can fit a lot of items like sponges and liquid dish soap bottles. I love how it stores all my go-to sink and dish washing items in one place. It makes my kitchen look much more organized and neat." —Moonray

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99 (available in two colors).

    42. And finally, a pack of Ramen sticky notes so you can use your ~noodle~ and write down all your best ideas (like getting everything from this list).
