    1. A slim canteen with a clean design so dazzling you're gonna want to drink it all in... and I'm not even talking about the water.


    Promising review: "I carry water with me everywhere I go. I was looking for a bottle that I could easily carry in my purse without it feeling bulky or uncomfortable. This fits wonderfully into my purse, it has a good seal, and it looks great! It's very trendy and appealing. The comment I hear a lot is that it reminds people of a flask, but that just adds on to the appeal of it." —Iwona K.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in five colors).

    Get them from Amazon for $9.18+ (available in two colors).

    5. A side table that'll actually compliment your topsy turvy lifestyle, while also being a brilliantly multi-functional piece in any small space.


    Promising review: "These things are absolutely FANTASTIC. They're well constructed, strong, and flexible. I bought four of them and use them as nightstands and as a side table in the living room. I wish I had more space so I could buy a few more. Worth every penny." —PFord

    Get it from Amazon for $199+ (available in three colors).

    6. A faux croc leather belt bag sure to be a splendid accessory that really (fanny) packs a punch.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $19.90.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    8. A Billie razor so you can drop the pink tax and pick up a razor that looks as smooth as your body will be after you use it, if you're into that sort of thing.,

    I use a Billie razor and love it. In fact, a bunch of people on my team do! A few of my BuzzFeed coworkers wrote a full review on how great the Billie razor subscription service is! The starter kit includes the razor, a magnetic holder, and two five-blade razor cartridges.

    Here's a piece of the review: "Billie is just the most wonderful company, and every time I take a shower, I ponder if I should write them fan mail. First of all, everything they design is ADORABLE, so even if their razors were dull or flimsy, I'd still be a loyal fan. But luckily, their razors are as sharp as they are sharp looking. The handle is super lightweight and easy to grip. The razor heads are surrounded in a layer of soap, so they glide beautifully over skin without irritating it. Billie makes great razors and it's awesome that they're so affordable. If only they could go back in time and stop me from paying absurd amounts of money on pharmacy brand razors in my youth." —Rebecca O'Connell

    Get the starter kit from Billie for $9 (available in five colors).

    9. A multivitamin that'll ~clearly~ make even the mundane task of vitamin-taking seem sorta fabulous.


    Read one of my BuzzFeed coworker's reviews and learn why she loves these vitamins so much!

    Here's a small slice of the review: "The magic mostly lies in both the bottle and pill design — WHY DON'T ALL PILLS LOOK AND FEEL LIKE THIS — and also in the magical minty tab. I didn't realize it at first, but each bottle has a clear food-safe plastic tab at the bottom that's infused with peppermint oil; this makes the vitamins smell (and lightly taste) minty. It sounds like a small thing, but it actually goes a really long way. Overall, taking them each day is a legit lovely experience, so I actually do it." —Rachel Wilkerson Miller

    Get a one-month supply from Ritual for $30.

    10. A microplane butter blade to add a lovely ~twist~ to your basic bread and butter.

    Food 52

    Get it from Food 52 for $25 or get a pair of similar ones from Amazon for $12.79.

    11. An LED aquarium — the only thing that might feel ~fishy~ after getting this is when you realize your guppies live in a better place than you do.


    Promising review: "This aquarium is so easy to set up and beautiful to see. My fish is so happy in her new home. I love this unit. After struggling with less expensive units, I finally invested in something worthwhile. This has taken away the headache of maintaining an aquarium and it is simply stunning. This is just wonderful! Wow!" —JMP

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in two colors) or if you're just looking for a cool fish bowl, grab this one for $25.

    12. A Baggu shopping bag that folds into a lightweight pocket-sized square you can easily leave in your purse *or* slide into your blazer as a spiffy pocket's that good lookin'.


    Promising review: "I received a BAGGU bag several years ago as a gift, and I use it nearly every day! The things that sets BAGGU apart from other bags: 1) Cute prints! There are a lot to choose from! 2) It folds and fits easily in my purse. You know those bags that you open up and can never fit it back in it's original case? You will NOT experience that with these bags!! 3) Durability. I generally use my bags for canned goods and grocery shopping. The strap is also large enough to wear over the shoulder for ease of carrying. I'd recommend BAGGU to anyone!!" —S T

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in 32 colors and patterns).

    13. A lightweight trashcan with a small side handle that accentuates its good looks — this stunning receptacle is here to show the world your trash doesn't have to look like garbage.


    Promising review: "This is a stylish, minimalist trash can. It's amazing how hard it is to find a trash can that isn't an eye sore. This one looks nice and doesn't take up much space." —Megan Rolerkite

    Get it from Amazon for $19.50+ (available in three colors).

    14. A durable and waterproof backpack roll for adventurers who want their gear to look as slick as the water that rolls right off it.


    Promising review: "I love this backpack. It's a lot more spacious than I thought it would be and it's amazing that the size can adjust simply by rolling/unrolling the top. I'm using it because I bike everywhere and now rain is the least of my worries. I can store the battery for my ebike in it and I don't have to worry about damage. This is the only backpack I'm using from now on, it's certainly worth the price." —Joanna W.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in six colors and two sizes).

    15. A dustpan and brush set that'll help you ~brush up~ on your cleaning. TBH, even if you skip dusting, just leaving this lovely piece out'll make your place look spic and span. Life hack.


    Promising review: "I hung this on my kitchen wall to brush crumbs and what-not off of my counters. It is exactly what I was looking for in size, appearance, and function. Would 100% buy again." —Tay

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available two colors and two sizes).

    16. A loft bed with a desk in a striking, thin design that just might end up looking too exciting to sleep on.


    Promising review: "AWESOME BED. We get SO many compliments. I researched ratings and reviews for a long time before making this investment. Well worth the leg work. It’s not squeaky and makes my son’s small bedroom SO much roomier. The desk underneath is the length of the bed so it fits a TV for gaming and space for homework." —NewEnglandMom

    Get it from Amazon for $246.93.

    17. A free-standing toilet paper holder with an elegant, upright look sure to be worthy of a royal flush.

    18. A set of four trinket dishes you can piece together or show off on their own. Either way, grab these and you can keep your tiniest treasures in a safe and stylish spot.


    Promising review: "This tray is cute, modern, durable, and is a great compliment to many rooms in my home. I find that having four individual trays is convenient, and I also like that I can combine them together if I do not need to have everything separate. Having the ability to customize the pieces is handy for creativity, as well as complimenting the space I want to use them in. I sometimes have random trinkets that quickly clutter up a space and this tray is a great way to visually add division and organization." —Kimhoay

    Get them from Amazon for $9.78.

    19. A spray-on hand sanitizer so darn good looking, it's gonna make you say, "Bacteri-ya, I need this."


    People on the BuzzFeed Shopping and Products team have tried this sanitizer and loved it!

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in eight scents).

    20. A stone-inspired sink saver that'll keep your sink free of scratches and hold your dirty dishes in place when you and your roommates seem to specialize in stacking (and not, you know, washing) dishes.


    Promising review: "Purchased these to protect my new stainless steel sink. And they work great! Hubby isn't the most careful guy in the kitchen and now I don't worry about what he decides to toss into the sink. Since water spots are an issue with stainless steel sinks I thoroughly dry both the sink and the mat after each use. Should keep my sink looking new for a long time. Very satisfied!" —NMGal

    Get it from Amazon for $7.86+ (available in five styles).

    21. A quilted chenille floor pillow so you can fill your apartment with fancy and functional pieces when your heart wants more furniture and your apartment wants you to move all your junk out.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.88+ (available in four colors).

    22. A sleek electric toothbrush that'll let you ~brush up~ on your oral care *and* your bathroom decor — undeniably proving that Quip is the actual tooth fairy.


    The set comes with a toothbrush, travel cover mount, large toothpaste, and a travel-sized toothpaste. For $10 every three months, you’ll get a new brush head, a AAA battery, and two tubes of toothpaste (one standard and one travel).

    I personally love my Quip, but it also won our budget category for the best electric toothbrush on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get it from Quip for $25+ (available in six colors and two styles).

    23. A MoMA lattice table cloth that's sure to look delightfully lovely, even when you're only using it to save your kitchen table from your kid's magic marker phase.


    Your hallway walls never stood a chance.

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

    24. A set of Areaware coasters for hosts who know a good looking coaster will be a coaster that actually gets used.

    Animi Causa

    This is dishwasher safe and BPA free!

    Get it from Animi Causa for $16.99.

    26. A scratcher lounge for cat people who know their furry friend deserves the fanciest furniture in their flat.


    Promising review: "Our house is decorated in more contemporary decor and this scratcher sits nicely next to our Noguchi Table and doesn't miss a beat. The item is reversible and I expect to get a good lifespan out of it. At very least four times what I would have with the cheaper cardboard scratchers. At that point, they have more than paid for themselves." —Diana de Avila

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in three colors).

    27. A striking, swiveling, wall-mountable towel bar that'll make hanging up towels so easy you won't have to throw down the towel (literally) when trying to get your kids to hang them up feels like an impossible task.


    Promising review: "I purchased this a few days ago to add to my newly remodeled guest bathroom and was a little leery of the weight that the towels would put on the hinges. Having loaded it down now, with high-quality bath sheets, it easily supports the towels without any bowing or drooping to the rods. The hinges have nylon bushings between each joint, which makes them nice and tight so far. After buying this system, I would definitely recommend and will purchase additional KES products in the future." —Crackin4

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three colors and five sizes).

    28. A pack of silicone straws that are lovely (obvi) dishwasher safe (drool) and are gonna be easy to take anywhere (heckin' joy).

    Food 52

    Promising review: "We were worried that these would buckle in take-out drinks, but they hold up beautifully. Add in that they’re dishwasher safe and these are a winner!" —FrozenFoodie

    Get a pack of five from Food52 for $25 or get a similarly bendy set from Amazon for $9.99.

    29. A two-tiered industrial pipe clothing rack so you can show off your favorite clothes and keep your room looking super swanky, even though you're really just making up for a genuine lack of closet space.


    Promising review: "This rack is the bomb! I assembled it in about 30 minutes by myself, using only the tools that came in the package. The instructions were clear and the pieces fit together easily. The whole rack is sturdy and rolls on the floor easily when I need to move it. It’s the perfect storage for my tiny room, since I don’t have a closet. I was skeptical ordering a clothing rack online (after buying a terribly flimsy and cheap one at a store), but this one gets all five stars! This product meets all of my needs and the price is well worth it!" —Alyssa

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    30. A Stagg pour-over kettle so insultingly chic your friends are gonna be offended just by looking at it (and realizing it isn't their own).


    Promising review: "I bought this kettle over a year ago and typically use it on the weekends. The kettle is beautiful, we get so many compliments on the look of it. We use a gas range to heat the kettle and also have the black plastic handle, and it is still in mint condition. We have been so happy with this kettle that we are gifting it to friends and family now for christmases, housewarmings, etc. Thanks for a great product!" —Anders R.

    Get it from Amazon for $69+ (available in three colors).

    33. A brilliantly basic bread box so you can keep your best friend (carbs) in a place as beautiful as they are.


    Promising review: "Love it. It's very nice looking and large enough to store a large loaf of bread and a bit more. I got a second one for snacks and I love both of them. They are very neat on the counter side by side and they hold a lot more than I thought they would. No more clutter." —Flip Flop Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in four colors).

    34. A pack of wool dryer balls that'll dry your clothes faster, make your laundry softer, and be an eco-friendly replacement for dryer sheets and fabric softener. You'll seriously have a ~ball~ with these lovely things in your laundry.

    Food 52

    Get a pack of three from Food 52 for $20 (available in two sets) or get a pack of plain white wool ones from Amazon for $9.99.

    35. A two-tiered shelf organizer – it's not only gonna add a sleek look to your space with that snazzy stainless steel, but also be the best way to use up every nook and cranny of storage space in your studio's minuscule kitchen.


    Promising review: "This is perfect for my bathroom counter to make more space. It was cluttered before with stuff I use daily and don't like the hassle of constantly removing and replacing from drawers. Having it all stacked neatly to the corner is much more tidy and convenient. Assembly was easy." —JDH

    36. And a collared coat, because fall is creeping upon us and you deserve something stunning upon your body when it's finally here.


    Promising review: “I only recently got this coat but BOY am I excited to wear it this winter. It’s super soft, fuzzy, has a delightful lining, and will definitely keep me warm on the chilliest of days. I can’t help but feel like the chicest American Girl Doll, Samantha Parkington, while wearing it. Honestly, you’ll find me and this coat in my Christmas card this year.” —Heather Braga

    Get it from Modcloth for $149 (available in three colors and sizes XXS–4X).

    Me, not knowing how to handle myself around these ridiculously chic products:
