    1. An Instant Pot to completely redefine your cooking abilities. Grab this thing and cook entire meals with a literal push of a button. The future is now, people!

    Instant Pot making macaroni and cheese

    The Jetsons have nothing on this thing.

    P.S. the Duo Plus replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sautΓ©, steam, warm, even makes cakes. Read all about why this thing is changing how we cook in my BuzzFeeder coworker's review.

    Promising Review: "I deliberated about buying one of these for so long (over a year). I regret all of this deliberation, because now that I have it, I'm not sure how I lived without it. Rice turns out perfectly every time. It's amazing. I push a button and walk away and end up with edible rice every single time. I love that this has so many uses in our combined vegetarian/omnivorous household. This Instant Pot produced the only pork dish that my husband has ever liked. I made an amazing vegan curry. I've made soy milk, almond milk, and cashew milk yogurts, and they've all been fantastic. I'll never 'boil' an egg any other way ever again. Eggs turn out perfectly every time and they are so easy to peel. Stop deliberating and buy this now!" β€”Laura

    Price: $59.99+ (available in three styles and sizes)

    2. A charcoal peel-off mask that'll help unclog your pores and remove sebum so you won't be se-bummed about blackheads and buildup anymore. This even includes a silicone brush so your mask goes on smooth and you won't waste a smidgen of product.,

    Promising review: "This product is one of the best recommended that I found online. I'm glad I found it on here for such a good price. The quality is good. It spreads evenly and the applicator makes it so much easier. It comes off all in one piece, even if you don't do a full face like I needed to, and it picks up a lot. This definitely gets the job done. :)" β€”Adrieh S.

    Price: $14.99

    3. A pack of four Magic Erasers sure to finally scrub away the dirt and grime that's been giving you a hard time.

    Reviewer's oven with one side sparkling clean and the other side covered in muck and grime and dust

    Promising review: "Basically the best cleaning tool ever. Walls, counters, sinks, toys, you name it, I've used a Magic Eraser on it. We have a light-color sink basin in the kitchen and I use these once a week to keep it sparkling white. I used to have to use heavy-duty cleaner but just a quick wipe down with the Magic Eraser and it's good as new!" β€”seven4eleven

    Get a four-pack for: $6.99

    4. A pack of pimple patches – they're gonna save your skin when you're so sick of your whiteheads you think you might pop.


    Each box comes with 36 patches.

    Promising review: "I’m a 47 year old woman and have had adult cystic acne for 12 years. Four months ago I got the worst cystic zit of my life. It kept closing up and then refilling. I was so depressed and researched these dots online. I paid for next day shipping and was amazed how great they work! These were able to drain the zit and keep it draining so it couldn’t close and refill and get big and angry. Get these! Seriously, they really are a GOD send!" β€”auntylizzy

    Price: $12.50

    5. A clever storage cube so you can keep 96 pens, pencils, markers, brushes, or whatever tiny tools you currently have lying around upright and organized.,

    Promising review: "I love everything about this. It's perfect for my desk. I'm an artist, and I bought two for all my markers. It's lightweight, very classy looking, and the price is great. I put one on each end of my desk. They're small but hold so many markers or pencils." β€”Sherrie Stone

    Price: $7.96+ (available in two sizes)

    6. A set of daringly darling measuring spoons that'll be the cherry on top of your kitchen tools.

    Cherry and leaf designed table spoons

    Promising review: "These are really cute and of good quality. And the leaf is an egg separator, which is neat." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $17

    7. A seat filler, because you've had too many disasters strike at the drive-through... you need something that's sure to save future french fries from certain doom.

    Packaging beside the gap filler between seat and cup holders in car

    Promising review: "I have to admit, my expectations weren't very high. I thought it was more of a joke when my husband got this for me for Christmas. Little did I realize, it would be one of my favorite gadgets ever! I don't know if I realized just how many things went missing in my seat gap. It has really saved a lot of things from disappearing into that black hole. It was easy enough to fit into my car and it's soft! It's just like an extension of my seat, except it fits every curve of my seat! There really isn't another product that compares to this. That's why I gave it five stars!" β€”Tessa Forbes

    Price: $22.99

    8. A can of erasers that's gonna make any recipient say "Olive these very much."


    Promising review: "This is a cleverly designed product with entertaining packaging. The hole is large enough to accommodate a small finger, like an actual olive, but narrows inside so the olive eraser can be pushed onto the end of a pencil. It's a great gift for anyone who writes with a pencil (whether they like eating black olives, or prefer sticking exclusively to the non-edible variety)." β€”Mag

    Price: $11.14

    9. Three bottles of poop spray to save your bathroom from, well, yourself. Just spray it in the tank before you go and everything is sure to be coming up roses!

    Small bottle of product with spray top

    Read all about how well this works in my other coworker's post about the travel size version.

    Promising review: "We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare – particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement ('YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I'M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.') he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting now after he leaves." β€”Supa D

    Price: $23.85

    10. A pack of 200 earring backs that'll always have your back, ya hear?


    Promising review: "These little silicone backs are small, but they tightly hold the earring in place really well. And with 200 pieces in the box, if you drop one (you will), it really doesn’t matter. Now I can safely wear the earrings in my jewelry box that are missing one or both backs. This was an excellent (and inexpensive) purchase for me. Highly recommend!" β€”Carol R. Slicher

    Price: $5.99

    11. An elevated stainless steel baking and cooling rack for anyone who wants to take their cooking skills to the next level.

    Vegetables being pulled out of the oven. They are on top of the cooling rack, on a backing sheet

    Promising review: "These are great quality! They're great for cooling or heating. The cooling rack won't tip over on you. I've used them for cooling cupcakes and used them to finish up my coated chicken wings – it gets them up off the baking sheet and helps bake the sauce on nicely. These should last a lifetime as they are truly great quality! I am not one to take the time to do many detailed reviews but this product is worth it." β€”DLM MI

    Price: $13.99+ (available in six sizes)

    12. A reusable silicone food bag with an air-tight seal you can use to replace all the plastic bags in your place – store leftovers, heat up food in the microwave, or simply to store your snacks in.

    Sandwich being prepped with another inside storage bag. A smaller one holds apple slices.

    You can also use it for sous vide and throw them in the dishwasher when you're done!

    Promising review: "I've tried a LOT of reusable bags as there are a lot of options out there all using a variety of materials. The fabric ones just get gross over time. The vinyl ones are hard to clean and aren't usually dishwasher safe. There are other silicone ones that need a separate rod to close them that you can easily lose. This one is the most simple and easy to use. No separate pieces to lose. They can withstand any temperature in the /microwave/dishwasher/whatever. And if they get gunky they are very easy to clean and I trust that they aren't hiding gross crumbs in any of the crevices." β€”Megan A.

    Price: $9.59 (available in two sizes and seven colors)

    13. A pair of computer glasses with a lens that'll keep your eyes from aching when you're staring at screens all day. If you work at a desk, it's time to put on a pair of these pretties.,

    Each pair of glasses is slightly tinted to filter out the intense blue light of computer and phone screens. My coworker wrote about how you need these glasses if you work at a computer all day, and I think I better listen.

    Promising review: "These are exactly what was advertised. They are lightly tinted but still remove a decent amount of blue light. They are lightweight and quite comfortable for me. And my wife even says they look good on me, too. I am going to buy another pair for my work office." β€”Donald Sensing

    Price: $4.87+ (available in 14 strengths and 37 colors)

    14. A cast iron skillet to make it look like you have a ton of skill(et)s in the kitchen. And make your food taste *chef's kiss* delicious.

    Skillet with cooked vegetables inside

    My husband and I finally decided to get a cast iron skillet after watching one too many cooking shows that insisted it'd change the way we cook. Turns out chefs know what they're talking about, because we will never go without one of these again. You can also get a single serving sized skillet. I personally recommend this, my stomach is much happier because of it.

    Price: $46.16

    15. A toilet paper holder that's sure to delight people who aren't ~sheepish~ about sporting some adorable, and useful, bathroom storage.

    Steel sheep's head and legs with toilet paper rolls stacked on top to look like wool

    Promising review: "This is a super cool addition to any bathroom area. It holds jumbo rolls too! It looks good hanging on the wall or standing up. It's funky and functional!" β€”Andy N.

    Price: $34.99

    16. A bag of organic Death Wish coffee for anyone who truly believes in the phrase "death before decaf".

    Bag of coffee beans with skull logo

    Which should be allllmost everyone.

    Promising review: "Ok folks words of warning....if you have heart conditions, ration out your coffee. If you drink 24 oz Starbucks' grande, you need a 8 oz. of this as your FIRST cup. I'm serious; heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage or single handedly raising the Titanic on your own; all in the fist hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned!" β€”ITsTheXFactor

    Price: $19.96

    17. A hideaway plunger that'll help you hide the grossest part of necessary bathroom tools and pretend it doesn't exist, until you really need it.

    Plunger being pulled out of enclosed base

    Promising review: "I have two of these in my home and the plunger works as a plunger should. That is enough discussion of that. The coolest part is the holder. I like having a plunger at the ready for those moments when it is necessary but prefer not to set them directly on the floor, nor do I want to see them, so the holder is perfect. As I lift the weight of the plunger up, the caddy opens and stays open until I place the plunger back in, then it closes and my plunger is out of sight. Yay!!!" β€”Jill P.

    Price: $30.72

    18. An electric kettle so you can put the kettle to the metal and heat yourself up a strong cup of chamomile before your 9pm bedtime. I support this. A lot.

    Silver kettle with indicators on side

    Promising review: "This is a great kettle and oh so cheap!! It's easy to use and works very well. It has clear indicators for the amount of water you are filling and gets to boiling hot in about a minute. The automatic off switch is perfect for mornings because you can do other things while the water boils. I love this little thing." β€”Darin French

    Price: $26.09

    19. A foot cream that's sure to save your skin when dryness, smelliness, or sweatiness has you feeling de-feet-ed.

    Reviewer's foot after using the product from first day to fourth week. The heels is dark and cracked at first and then totally smooth by week four.

    Read all about this cult favorite foot cream to find out if it's right for you.

    Promising review: "I'm honestly quite surprised by this product. I have pretty nasty feet, especially at the heels. I normally use the cheese grater tool on my heels and the balls of my feet every few weeks and, while that works, it usually leaves my heels a bit sensitive after use. I'm on week two of using this foot cream (after seeing it on a TV commercial) and I have to say, the results are pretty amazing. My heels are healing and, while I still have some thick and rough skin on the heels, it's been dramatically reduced. My heels actually look somewhat healthy." β€”The Penguin

    Price: $9.12

    20. A knife sharpener so you, and your cutlery, can be the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Hands holding sharpener and knife

    Promising review: "I've never sharpened my Calphalon knives and I've had them for almost four years. The last time I cut meat I worked up a sweat because the knives were so dull. Tonight I sharpened them using this sharpener and the chicken cuts like butter!!! I'm in heaven!" β€”winej

    Price: $10.95

    21. A fabric defuzzer sure to clean up sweaters, sofas, and other aging fabrics that have been a real ~pill~ lately.

    Reviewer's sofa with pulls and scratches cut smooth after use

    Promising review: "I didn't think it through when I threw some dark shirts and sweaters in the wash with a couple of light towels. They came out with all those fuzzies. I ordered one of these based on the price and customer reviews and I can see why this is rated so high. Since it's so portable, I just sat on the couch and shaved two shirts and a pair of cottony exercise pants while watching tv. I probably would have never worn these items (at least not outside the house!) again if it wasn't for this great little gadget." β€”Paula Nelson

    Price: $12.99 (available in six colors)

    22. A box of plant food to make gardening so much easier this spring, the thought of working outside will really ~grow~ on you.

    Outdoor flowers being given water and plant food

    Promising review: "I love this!! Years ago I worked in an office and there was a Poinsettia plant that had seen better days. My coworker was going to throw it out but I told her to let me try to revive it, so I used this stuff just like I used it on my house plants and nursed the plant along. It was like a miracle when right around Christmas the Poinsettia plant I cared for displayed the bright red leaves!!! The other people in the office had told me the plant would die, so you can imagine their faces when they saw the results of the Miracle-Gro!" β€”Doug W.

    Price: $4.59

    23. 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.

    Four plush sitting pillows stacked on each other

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

    Price: $24.99+ (available in six colors)

    24. 1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die, a book full of meals so delectable everyone will wanna eat it right up.

    Book cover

    Promising review: "This is a FABULOUS book! It's like a food history, travelogue, and [limited] cookbook in one. It's SO MUCH fun. It's organized by countries/regions/ethnicities. I'm rather well informed about (and like to eat and cook) international dishes. This has many familiar ones but many more new adventures to try!" β€”Aunt Lolli

    Price: $16.99

    25. A mildew resistant shower curtain liner so you can clean your body in a place that's actually clean.

    Clear shower curtain

    Promising review: "This is the best shower curtain ever. Not only is this shower curtain CHEAP, but because of it, my shower is really staying mold and mildew free. I am so sick and tired of buying every single 'mildew resistant' shower curtain I can find. It is so annoying to have one for a month or so, only to see it get wrecked and dirty and impossible to clean. So far, I have had the same one of these inside of my shower for six months, only needing minor cleaning." β€”DBomz

    Price: $10.99

    26. And an overflow cap to help you soak in a bath that's filled to the brim.

    Plastic cover over drain stopper

    Promising review: "Baths have changed for me forever now! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear that dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubble baths, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, especially, you know...THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths and enjoy more warm coziness. All because of this little bit of silicone!" β€”anonymous

    Price: $10.99 (available in four colors)

    27. A floral water fountain with three pressure settings and an adorable design sure to convince your particularly persnickety pet their water is, in fact, fresh as a daisy.

    Cat drinking from moving fountain

    This has a water level indicator and an LED nightlight. It includes a filter, but you can also get refills when the water starts to seem less than fresh.

    Promising review: "Cats aren't prone to drinking enough water and they also abhor getting their whiskers wet. This fountain was a huge hit from the moment I set it up and solved both of those problems. My kitty now guzzles water any time she wishes, which is definitely more than before (and yay, I don't have to turn the sink on for her now, which was the only way she'd drink water). This is fantastic!" β€”X

    Price: $27.99 (available in two colors)

    28. 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.

    Mint trash can with wooden handle

    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." β€”Megan Rolerkite

    Price: $19.50+ (available in three colors)

    29. And finally, a MoMA lattice table cloth that's gonna look lovely, even when you're only using it to save the kitchen table from your kid's magic marker phase.

    Gray tablecloth with grid pattern and tassels

    Promising review: "We love this tablecloth. It matches very nicely with our decor, it's easy to clean, and it's the perfect size." β€”Jennifer Meyer

    Price: $16.99

    30. A pack of dander reducing wipes that'll help your pet have a clean coat without any bath time drama.

    Each pack has 50 wipes. BTW, you can also get grooming wipes from Burt's Bees for your dog.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first, but am so glad I decided to get these. Burt's Bees make excellent products. My apartment is so dry in the cold seasons, even with running multiple vaporizers. My cat was getting very bad dry skin and dander, as you can see in the first image (pictured above, left). After one use her fur is soft, silky, and the dander is so much better! This product will be a regular purchase and a must for my pets!" β€”Magpie

    Price: $6.49

    31. A car headrest pillow to save your neck from the awkward nap angles you usually end up in during long road trips. Don't let neck pain put a kink in your future travel plans!

    A person sleeping in the car with two headrest bumpers on either side of their head

    Promising review: "I almost dozed off the first time I tested it in the driveway, lol. It was easy to install and adjustable for a 6-foot-3-inch adult all the way down to a small child very easily. It took me less than 10 minutes to unbox and set it up perfectly with all adjustments." β€”Edward

    Price: $32.90 (available in four colors)

    32. A moisture meter you can place deep down into the soil to know exactly how much water your plant is getting. Under- and overwatering is a thing of the past, people!, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    I love having this tool in my home! I jumped on the 2020 plant trend fast and have filled my home with tons of botanicals (that all have different watering schedules). The meter tells you if a plant is being over-watered or under-watered right down to the root, which is very necessary for a plant parent (who used to be a plant murderer) like myself.

    Promising review: "This item is great. I can check how wet my plants are down where the roots are. So no more over watering! It is very accurate. This works great!!" β€”Terri Carlson

    Price: $12.57

    33. An AeroGarden if you want to start growing but only have some counter space to spare.

    AeroGarden filled with full grown herbs

    This includes six herb seed pods of Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, thyme, Thai basil and mint, with a 3-oz. bottle of all natural plant nutrients (enough for a full season of growth).

    Promising review: "I got this as a birthday present for my husband, the classic man who is impossible to buy for, and he was thrilled with it. He's a by-the-numbers kind of guy, and followed the directions carefully. As a result, all six of the herbs have germinated, and we are already using some of them (basil, thyme and dill) only three weeks later. One thing: the light is much brighter than I expected. It's bright. The timer keeps it on for 15 hours a day, so hopefully there's a place in your house where it won't reflect off the TV screen or light up somebody's bedroom." β€”Mary B.

    Price: $99.97+ (available in three styles)

    34. A cervical neck "pillow" that'll provide ergonomic support, align your spine, and give you a much needed vertebrae massage simply by lying down.

    Promising review: "This device relieves the knots and pain from my shoulder and neck. It is SUPER nice for travel as it is small and compact. This is a must-have device if you have aches and pains.." β€”Aaron Ahern

    Price: $19.99

    35. A vibrating posture corrector to remind you to lift yourself back up whenever you start slouching, easing tension in your shoulders and helping to prevent poor posture from becoming permanent (and thus, permanently painful).

    Two people sitting with upright posture. One is wearing the back vibrator and the other is wearing a vibrating necklace.

    Promising review: "This device has been life-changing for me! I am in good shape but after 10 years of sitting at a desk 10+ hours a day my posture had deteriorated to a point where it was causing me a lot of pain, discomfort, and embarrassment. It had become second nature for me to always slouch and I had zero awareness of when I slouched except when I would see a picture of myself. Bad posture isn’t always due to a lack of strength and physicality but a lack of awareness. For me, it was a bad habit formed over many years. This device truly helped me to kick my bad posture habit. I keep this device in training mode all day because it reminds with a little vibration to straighten up every time I slouch. This is exactly what I needed! The first day I wore this device I was surprised to learn how often I was slouching and I admit it was really hard to maintain good posture all day. With time it has become easier and I am now more self-aware. I am proud to say my posture has significantly improved with this device. The app is super cool and intuitive β€” this is just a well-thought-out product. This device is fantastic, I highly recommend it." β€”Chris

    Price: $99.95

    36. A flameless plasma arc lighter with an extended handle that's sure to make lighting candles, grills, and fireplaces far easier. This really is the perfect ~match~ for anyone who always needs a little light.

    A person lighting several tall candles with the plasma arch

    Promising review: "I love this lighter and will buy it as a gift for MANY MANY people. What a fabulous gift this makes with a small candle and a special message! I keep two of them at home in different parts of the house. Just using it is FUN! The packaging is classy/classic and amazing. The shipping was prompt and the lighters arrived in perfect condition for my use. You will NOT be disappointed." β€”Sbarabara

    Price: $19.95

    37. A set of cart trolley bags for earth-friendly folks who would like an efficient, plastic-free, shopping experience.,

    Each bag holds up to 50 pounds and has an extra pocket.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I've been looking for. It fits all the shopping carts and you can detach them and take only one to tow all of the bags if you are shopping for smaller quantities. I've been using these for a few days now and I love it. I used to have a bunch of different bags in my trunk and it was very messy. With Lotus Bags, I can finally get rid of all the other bags and have these sitting nice and pretty in the trunk. The cooler bag is especially awesome to keep the items cool while shopping to transporting them home. The bags look very well made and sturdy." β€”JJ

    Price: $49.99 (available in two colors)

    38. A marble patterned essential oil diffuser to create a calm atmosphere that really ~rocks~ before you fall asleep.

    Marble design round diffuser

    Promising review: "Beautiful, highly recommend! You can set it to mist for one, three, or six hours and can use with lights or without lights. Great quality, comes with cute water measuring cup. I use this in my home office. Contemporary marble look design goes with any decor!" β€”Mindy R

    Price: $34.99 (available in two colors)

    39. A vibrating facial brush β€” an exfoliating skincare tool that'll take a basic bath to the next level. I own this thing and IMHO, I'm pretty confident this would ~vibe~ with just about everyone.

    My hand holding up my palm-sized cleansing brush. It's the shape of a flattened egg, with soft silicone bristles on both sides.
    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Before getting this device, although I have a very strict skincare routine, I really didn’t exfoliate often enough. Now being able to gently exfoliate whilst I cleanse morning and night is so great, especially as I have been able to add this into my skincare routine without any additional time! I have super sensitive skin which gets red very easily but this device is gentle enough for me on the middle speed setting (or even higher) with no irritation. You can play around with different levels of vibration, which is great, and I find the highest level is great for massaging the forehead (also try the back for this area) and it's really relaxing!! I’ve had mine for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t run out of charge yet, so will be great for travel! Important to note that I did follow the instructions to charge mine as soon as I received it. Plus the super cute pink color looks so nice in my bathroom!" β€”Sophie

    Price: $69.99 (available in two colors)

    40. A collapsible popcorn popper for movie enthusiasts who love popcorn, but would also love an alternative to wasteful microwave bags.

    Silicone popcorn cooker coming out of microwave

    This is dishwasher safe and BPA free.

    Promising review: "This thing is terrific! I used 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels, set for three and a half minutes. There were ONLY TWO unpopped kernels when I finished eating the popcorn. I have never seen such efficiency in any product in the last 40 years. If I didn't see it myself I would not believe it." β€”Gringras

    Price: $15.90 (available in 22 colors)

    41. A box of assorted gourmet cookies that'll certainly make any dull day choco-lit.

    Oreo cookies covered in different chocolate drips and toppings

    Promising review: "These are delicious and beautifully presented. I bought them for my wife as a gift and she absolutely loved them. They come wrapped beautifully with a bow – it was perfect. The cookies tasted delicious – we finished the whole box in one sitting. I highly recommend this as a gift or just to treat yourself." β€”Schon Family

    Price: $14.99+ (available in two sizes)

    42. A pair of memory foam slippers to upgrade their comfort-chic wardrobe.

    Slide-on slippers with fuzzy interior and thick sole suitable for outdoor use

    Promising review: "These are fabulous slippers! They're everything a slipper should be: super soft and warm, easy to slip on and off, and the sole comes up just high enough on the sides to keep the slipper from 'rolling' and it’s got the right amount of grip to keep you from slipping on hardwood or tile." β€”Humans of Kork & Kopper

    Price: $19.99+ (available in four colors and sizes 5–12)

    43. Much Loved, a coffee table book you can read while holding your own darling, deteriorating, stuffed animal.

    Book cover with very old stuffed bear on front

    Promising review: "This is adorable. I have an affinity for stuffed animals, so reading about these rag-tag fellas' stories is very interesting to me. It's almost tear-jerking in some cases. It has good, full-page photos with little blurbs about each one. Some are short, but others have a bit more of a 'life' behind them." β€”Jess

    Price: $16.59

    44. A cold brew maker for us lightweights who can only handle shots of the espresso variety.

    One of my BuzzFeed coworkers wrote a review about why she thinks you need this cold brew maker.

    Promising review: "I love cold-brewed coffee! The biggest problem with making iced or cold coffee was the watered down taste that I had when I added ice to freshly brewed coffee. Takeya solved that problem! This product is incredibly easy to use, and the coffee is delicious! All it takes is some coarsely ground coffee, water and time to brew. In less than three minutes, I had the Takeya loaded and set it in the fridge to brew overnight. While I missed the smell of fresh coffee brewing the next morning, I got over it pretty fast when I tasted the cold brew. So happy to be able to enjoy my favorite hazelnut brew without the acidic taste. I am thinking about buying a second one so that I can have a cup or two in the afternoon." β€”Tennis Vol

    45. And an inflatable punching bag sure to help you let off a little steam with a big workout.

    Promising review: "This has been a game-changer for me and my teen girls during the quarantine. It's a great product that’s provided lots of workouts and it's fun to boot. It's easy to fill the base with sand or water. This is a great product at a reasonable price. It’s gotten a lot of use already and no signs of wear." β€”Elizabeth Leitko
