    1. A paint by numbers kit that'll let you show off your artistic chops on the daily. Wait, you don't have those? You do now. All of them.


    Promising review: "I love this! I had so much fun painting it and it turned out better then I expected. When you're done with most paint by numbers you can kinda tell that's what they are. I've gotten so many compliments on this and people are all shocked when I say it was a paint by number. The brushes held up till the end, but just barely." —Shelby Salpas

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 11 styles).

    2. A pack of five cable wrap cords are gonna keep you from getting your wires crossed, literally, when you're commuting and tuning out everything around you — you're clearly too put together to get tangled up on public transit.


    Promising review: "This magnetic cable winder works well for soft cables on earphones and USB cables. This serves its purpose and has colorful options. I give five stars." —Binaek23

    Get them from Amazon for $7.95.

    3. A step-by-step baking kit with clear instructions and pre-measured ingredients so you can bring professional-grade desserts to your next PTA meeting, making Scott B.'s dad totally regret the day he quipped, "Store-bought is fine!" after tasting your brownies.


    Promising review: "Wow. What an amazing experience this was! I bought this subscription as a gift and it earned me major brownie points (pun intended). But seriously, I actually helped with the baking portion of this and it was fun and easy. I’ve never baked anything from scratch before other than pre-made cookie dough. Definitely recommend as an experience gift or if you’re just in the mood for brownies. Looking forward to trying the other recipes. I’ll report back :)" —Chris D.

    Get it from CrateJoy for $18.95+/month (available in six plans; vegan, nut free, and gluten free options offered).

    4. A Dash rapid egg cooker sure to guarantee you never have to ~scramble~ to find a good Sunday brunch spot ever again — your kitchen table is gonna be the best spot in town.


    It can make hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, and individual omelets. Can't decide if this sounds like an eggcelent idea? Read why one of my BuzzFeed coworkers thinks everyone who loves eggs needs this egg cooker.

    Promising review: "I bought this egg cooker for the first time a year and a half ago, and it is awesome. I hate having a single-purpose appliance in my kitchen, but this is worth it. Making hard-boiled eggs was always hit or miss for me, even if it was timed perfectly. (I admit I forgot about the eggs more than once!) This cooker makes PERFECT eggs every single time, to the exact hardness I desire with no green ring on the yolk. Even better, the shell slides off without taking half the egg white with it! My favorite use is to pop some eggs in when I get home and prep a salad. By the time the salad is ready, the eggs are done. I can even leave the kitchen and still hear when they are done because of the buzzer. I've purchased five more of them for family for Christmas this year and can't wait to get everyone on board the Dash Go Egg Cooker train!" —A. M. Hinshaw

    Get it from Amazon for $18.57+ (available in five colors).

    5. A guided questions journal that'll make you a memory-saving pro in a matter of (exactly two) minutes. Your posterity will love reading about the week you ordered six pizzas hoping to see that one hot pizza deliverer again. They really will.


    This journal helps guide you to find gratitude, feel stress relief, and set intentions by focusing on the phrase, "I will let go of, I am grateful for, I will focus on."

    Promising review: "Do you have two minutes? Do you struggle with priorities? Well, here's a journal to help you win your day. After struggling to manage his commitments, Neil Pasricha discovered a simple gratitude practice that changed his life. It takes—wait for it—just two minutes every morning. The practice is simple yet powerful, and by using a journal to log your entries, you'll be able to look back over the year at all you've accomplished." —Chris Guillebeau

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    6. A pack of 42 flexible curling rods you can throw in your hair at night and simply wake up in the morning looking like the very definition of beauty sleep.,

    To use, wrap small sections of your hair around each rod, add in some hairspray, go to bed, and you're done! Remove your rollers when you wake up and you'll be G2G! Even reviewers with suuuper fine, straight hair say these rollers work wonders despite using no (damaging) heat.

    Promising review: "These things are AWESOME. I have very long, fine/pin-straight hair and these curlers give my hair so much bounce. Since I wash my hair every other day, I use these when my hair is dry and leave them in overnight. I was expecting my hair to look like a frizzy poodle mess...but no. Just perfectly wavy curls (although I did brush the curls out a bit with a round brush because I don't personally care for perfect ringlets). The results are awesome!" —Brianna

    Get them from Amazon for $9.93+ (available in two packs).

    7. Or a John Frieda hot air brush reviewers swear by — sure to prove you are the kind of person who never has to get a professional blowout to have a look that blows people away., Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Seriously, this has over 3,500 five-star reviews and one BuzzFeeder wrote all about how this will eliminate your hair struggles forever.

    Promising Review: "It has two heat settings (plus a cool setting to set your style) AND ***ionic power*** to reduce frizz and add massive shine. And it has ceramic coating to reduce heat damage to your hair. I friggin' love this brush. All you need to do is section your hair out, depending on how thick it is, and roll it under your hair like you would a regular round brush — but because it releases hot air, there's NO NEED FOR A HAIR DRYER! Truly easy. And you get better results than with a flat iron, because you're lifting and brushing out the hair rather than just pressing it flat."—Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon for $33.32+ (available in two sizes).

    8. A pair of stellar running shoes with built-in sockliners, compression mesh, and a "zero-gravity" feel that'll make running marathons feel like a walk in the park.

    Under Armour

    Reviewers recommend ordering at least one size up.

    Promising review: "I bought these because they look cool. After reading reviews I got one size larger but they were still too small. I usually wear a size eight and nine didn't work out. I returned them and got a nine and a half. They are a good fit now. Very comfortable. Once I have them on I don't want to take them off. I wear them to the gym for all my HIIT and TCX classes." —lomzynianka

    Get them from Under Armour for $140 (available in sizes 5–12).

    9. A pet grooming glove for pet parents who want their lovable mutt looking like a show dog worthy of Westminster with just a brush of their hand.


    Promising review: "These gloves work wonders for my long-haired German Shepherd puppy. My puppy is 11 months old and sheds like crazy. These gloves are perfect because my puppy does not like being brushed by rough brushes and tries to bite them. With the gloves she doesn't care as much." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.86.

    10. A wood polish and conditioner — you'd usually avoid telling your parents about the rager you had the night before their visit, but they'll be so proud of your sparkling surfaces you'll want to show them the "before" photos of every buffed-out blemish.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely amazing. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places, we also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemishes. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new." —Kris

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $8.48.

    11. A set of five suction cup bath tubes so you can keep your kiddo entertained in the cleanest way possible while actually keeping them in the bathtub long enough to (finally) get them clean.


    These are gonna be so much better than last month's bath crayon disaster.

    Promising review: "Our 18-month-old adores these. His older sisters (five and seven) have also been enjoying them in the tub. They work great and stick really well. The only negative is that we have temper tantrums now because baby boy wants to take a bath all the time." —JKinSD

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98.

    12. A color depositing conditioner sure to make you look like the top of your Cosmetology class. You actually majored in Economics and haven't styled someone's hair since second grade, but still., Overtone

    You can purchase Overtone products as individual pieces or as a complete system. Each system includes a daily conditioner, strengthening mask, and travel bottle. You can find all of their colors here.

    Get the complete teal system from Overtone for $47, you can also get a color-depositing shampoo from Amazon for $35 (available in 12 colors).

    13. A Lifestraw water filter for the camping-curious who want a chance to really prove themselves in the wild — even if you've *gulp* barely been outdoors before.


    The straw's microfiltration membrane eliminates bacteria and parasites so you can safely drink from any available water source... seriously.

    Promising review: "I used this on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." —Kingston

    Get it from Amazon for $17.47.

    14. A pineapple slicing tool that'll help you make your office cocktail hour fabulous with drinks full of darling garnishes only a perfectly-cored pineapple could complete.


    Promising review: "I love this gadget. It cores and slices beautifully and easily and makes it very simple to prepare pineapple. It also saves money every time I use it, so it won't take long to pay for itself. Pineapples are priced by the item, while cored and sliced pineapple is by the pound. So I can buy a large pineapple, let it ripen, and get a lot more pineapple for a much lower price. It's also easy to clean, as the handle pops off and I can push out the core. I'm glad I finally bought one of these." —Craftergalore

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    15. A DIY video game kit so you can code with kiddos — making you the coolest babysitter this side of Sycamore street.


    This helps you make your own video game using physical and digital tools — the included game board and 320 blocks are used to build out rooms and characters that you can then scan into the app, where you then learn how to code the game.

    Promising review: "This is so much more than the board game you purchase. The board is just the beginning! My 10-year-old son absolutely loves this. He makes his very own video games to play and share. He likes the fact that he can create his own characters, his own levels, and tell his own story. He is on the sixth edition of one of his games and each and every game is better than the last. It encourages him to get in touch with his creative self and develop his storytelling abilities. As a parent, I don't have to monitor or limit his time because every minute engages him." —Kristen Keyser

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    16. A Critter Catcher that'll help you bravely wrangle and release creepy crawlies without any fear (because you won't have to get within a foot of them).


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

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    17. A box of assorted greeting cards so people think you're the kind of person who *never* forgets a birthday... even when you absolutely forgot about it until that Facebook notification popped up.


    This set includes 10 birthday cards, three celebration cards, three thank you cards, two 'just because' cards, one sympathy card, and one get well soon card (with 20 matching envelopes).

    Get them from Amazon for $23.76+ (available in four boxes in different styles).

    18. A countertop paint kit that'll make your friends ~marble~ at your DIY design skills.


    This three-step application works on Formica, laminate, Corian, ceramic tile, butcher block, cultured marble, and traditional granite and can be completed in a single weekend. Each kit has all the tools you’ll need, including a specialized primer (that’ll hide discoloration, burns, and minor scratches), mineral paints, and a protective acrylic topcoat. There’s enough of this stuff to cover 35 square feet of surface. The paint is water-based, low odor, and low in VOC.

    Promising review: "I couldn’t wait to start this project this weekend. We are 110% satisfied!! Neither my husband nor I are very artistic, but we are pleased with the way the veins came out. Our friends can’t believe this is painted on and this was easier to do than I thought!" —Kris Rollings

    Get it from Amazon for $99.17.

    19. An eyeliner stamp that's gonna give you wing-tips so impeccable you're sure to get any makeup artist's ~stamp~ of approval.,

    This includes two waterproof and smudge-resistant stamps (one for each eye) with an eyeliner pen on the opposite end for any sharp lines or touchups. Be sure to read our review to see why hundreds of people swear by this stamp.

    Promising review: "I struggle with makeup in all aspects. Eyeliner is no exception. If I get one side to look good, the other side never matches. I was skeptical that this little eyeliner pen would help me, but it does. It goes on smoothly and only needs some minor filling in. There are two double-ended pens. One with a left stamp and one with a right stamp. The other end on both is a regular eyeliner tip. It dries quickly and stays on all day. I’m very happy with this purchase." —Rebecca

    Get two stamps from Amazon for $9.97 (available in two sizes).

    20. A dog selfie stick that'll make Spot the selfie master you always knew she could be.


    Promising review: "I bought this after adopting my adorable and excitable rottweiler. I was hoping to get some nice pictures to share with friends and guess what, this thing works! At first, my fiancé mocked me for buying this but now he sees the great pictures and says this idea is genius. Titan loves tennis balls and the squeaky function really allows me to capture his attention." —Maranda

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. A handheld milk frother for coffee connoisseurs who would find nothing more satisfying than enjoying a perfect, home-foamed brew from the comfort of their kitchen counter.,

    This tiny, battery-powered magic latte wand comes with a stand to keep things sanitary. It's also great for traveling and camping!

    Promising review: "This makes the creamiest froth ever! I am completely blown away by the results of this device. I had no idea that I could make froth at home like this. This changes my whole cappuccino experience!!!" —Wells Family

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

    22. A Rubbermaid produce saver that'll keep your food fresh so long your roommates will think you're a produce-picking pro.


    This keeps your groceries fresh by regulating the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide and preventing moisture build-up, which slows down the spoilage process.

    Promising review: "We bought one of these just to try them out. We live in Montana and the veggies just don't seem to last as long as they did when we lived in AZ or WA. I put some baby spinach in one of the containers and nine days later the spinach literally looks as good as the day I bought it. I bought a three pack from Amazon and just threw a bunch of mixed berries in one and broccoli in another. I am extremely happy with my purchase." —pettyolives

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three sets).

    23. A wooden balance board core trainer so you can increase your strength, balance, and flexibility as fast as any fitness enthusiast — even if you can't ~stand~ going to the gym.


    Just shove it under your sofa and use it when you watch cartoons! I mean, you know, the news.

    Promising review: "This is very well made with quality materials. The support on the bottom is textured and does not slip easily. I use it on a smooth vinyl floor and have no trouble with it slipping. Like anything involving exercise, approach it with care and common sense and you will be fine." —TekDev

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    24. A to-do list notepad for making your life so organized you might as well start your own self-help blog. Feel free to cross "influencer" off your list, right next to "DON'T forget to buy tampons... again!"


    This keeps an organized log of your daily priorities and hourly goes. There's room for keeping track of your exercise, water intake, time spent standing, and even bills you need to remember to pay.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried just about every type of organization system and nothing really sticks. I end up making a list on scrap paper in the morning and crossing things off as I accomplish them. This planner is perfect for me because it provides the daily structure I was looking for. At night before I go to bed I take five minutes to fill it out for the next day. I’ve been more productive with it and haven’t missed an appointment or deadline. And I just turn it over at the end of the day and use the other side as scrap paper for grocery lists and notes." —A. Elton

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50+ (available in three styles).

    25. A copy of Crafting with Cat Hair because if people are already calling you a cat lady at 23, you're gonna make sure you are *the* cat lady by 24. I can't think of a better way to show your furocious affection.


    Promising review: "With the help of this book, my wife has made all of the Christmas gifts for our friends and family. I highly recommend this book to anyone who, like my wife, has shedding cats in their house." —Science Educator

    Get it from Amazon for $11.34.

    26. A Squatty Potty so you can even poo with perfection.


    Promising review: "Going 'number two' will never be the same! This is the best invention known to man. Seriously, with this you can poo in comfort and poo in peace. Poo with this underneath your feet and thank the porcelain gods for the genius who invented the most amazing product on earth!" —Sydney Armstrong

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    27. And a bottle of Poo-Pourri that'll guarantee you never even make the bathroom smell ~crappy~.


    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with healthy colons. Enter Poo-Pourri. It has an amazing scent. It's very fresh and not overpowering, and it isn't synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Allison H

    Get it from Amazon for $10.79 (available in 20 scents).

    28. A gel manicure light — the ~cure~ to your mediocre nail skills. This is sure to massively up your mani game, and your savings account.


    Promising review: "This lamp works well. It cures gel polish in 30-60 seconds (it still feels gooey on the surface, but once you wipe it with rubbing alcohol, it is perfectly dry). The opening is large enough for your whole hand to go in without damaging your manicure and the lights surround all of your nails so they all cure evenly." —Rach Banach

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    29. A toothpaste squeezing stand that'll give you the waste-free skills to get every single piece of that paste.


    Promising review: "This is well-made and nicely performs its function. Now I can get my toothpaste tubes under control." —Jon from Reston VA

    Get two from Amazon for $7.69.

    30. A cutting board/kitchen scissor combo to use when you've watched enough Barefoot Contessa to know your cooking genius begins by becoming a prep-work pro.


    Promising review: "This is a life saver for young and old, skilled or unskilled. It cuts/chops absolutely everything. I'm getting one for everyone for Christmas and I will never give a better gift than this one tool." —sweetsal

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    31. A copy of 104 Things to Photograph that'll guide your eye when you want a ~picture~ perfect portfolio, even if it's just for fun and just for you.


    The “things” to photograph are numbered, with slots to place your final image above each prompt.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.05.

    32. A pair of anti-nausea bands to keep you from getting sea sick on your family cruise — you're gonna be scooping up that chocolate fountain with a serving spoon while everyone else is ralphing up their breakfast buffet.


    Promising review: "I get motion sickness at a drop of a hat. When I decided to go on a second cruise, I bought these thinking they wouldn't do anything and that I would return them once I got home. I was pleasantly surprised and found that these helped me tremendously. I wore them all the time over the course of my five day cruise and was never sick during my vacation. I was stunned. My first cruise I got so sea sick the first day and ended up in a foggy haze the rest of the trip since I took so much Dramamine. Great little product and I can't believe how well they worked. I bought a second pair for the car, so if I ever feel sick, I can just put these on. I would highly recommend, even for the skeptical." —Kristina K.

    Get them from Amazon for $6.10.

    33. A frozen pie crust, because "easy as pie" only counts if you don't have to make the crust. Sneakily use this and your pies will be perfection.


    Get it from Prime Fresh on Amazon for $4.49.

    34. Or silicone baking molds so your pastries never tear and you get Mary Berry-approved baked goods every time you open the oven.


    And be sure to read more about these brilliant baking molds from one BuzzFeeder's post!

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical at first, but these little molds hold their weight and produce a beautiful product. Whatever you decide to use them for, they are worth the buy!" —Megan C Dickerson

    Get two from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three colors).

    35. A UV melding tool that'll make you the go-to person when there's a broken cord, toy, or heart in the home because you'll be so darn good at ~bonding~.


    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 $19.50.

    36. A ball launcher sure to give you an arm worthy of Shadow's tireless dog park days without totally wearing you (or your rotator cuff) out.

    Promising review: "I have a young Golden Retriever who would retrieve balls and frisbees all day long if my arm could take it. I bought this and love it! I can throw the ball a lot farther and for more throws, so he gets more exercise. I love that I no longer need to bend over to pick up the ball or have to touch a slimy, sandy, filthy ball! It's quite intuitive to use and within about three throws you'll have it down perfectly. You can also use regular tennis balls with it. This is a must-have if your dog likes retrieving games." —J.Essie

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49.

    37. A wall or tile peel-and-stick wallpaper that'll be the shockingly simple cherry on top of your TLC dreams.


    Get the wall version for $29.99+ (available in three colors) and the tile version for $30.99+ (available in three colors), both from Amazon.

    38. And finally, a French fry holder sure to prove you have the most ingenious mind of all time.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife as she is a French fry lover to the MAX. I gave it to her thinking it was an 'okay' novelty item for the truck. You would have thought it was the Hope Diamond. We immediately had to go to Sonic and try it out and it worked well. It is refreshing to watch such happiness." —Robert Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64.
