    1. A diaper wipe warmer that'll be soothing on your baby during nighttime diaper changes, because cold wipes could wake them right up in the dead of the night...when you're already dead tired.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have one in the nursery and in the living room! This is the best warmer for your money. It keeps my baby's bottom happy. He used to, and still will scream, at cold wipes. He hates cold wipes, so this is a mini miracle for us! It keeps the wipes wet and lukewarm! We keep them plugged always. The baby is two months old and they have been plugged in since, not a single problem! I recommend this." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $27.44.

    2. 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.

    Amazon

    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." —Sbarabara

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    3. A splurge-worthy Samsung Frame for those of us who don't want quality wall space taken over by a big blank screen. With this, you just happen to get a luxury television while you're at it.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a brilliant TV! It looks great in art mode. If your primary goal is to have the TV look less like a TV, I think you’ll be pleased with this one. There are some reviews that point out some downsides (like a small amount of local storage), but I’ve had no problems. The pictures make the screen look brighter than it is but with the right pictures, it looks matte and brilliant in art mode; like a framed print." —N B

    Get it from Amazon for $627.93+ (available in four colors and six sizes).

    4. A pack of four self-closing outlets to make your baby-proofed place look way less baby-proofed, even though they're extra safe!

    White wall outlet with slide covers
    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have been behind the curve on babyproofing and bought a big pack of the plastic two-prong outlet covers. My kiddo is determined to stick anything and everything he can into outlets and wants so badly to peel the individual outlet covers off. I bought a four-pack of these covers and they are AMAZING! They're easy to install (just don't forget the little plastic spacer between the actual bare outlet and the back of the cover) and SO MUCH BETTER than the cheap plastic covers. For the outlets that were the kiddo's 'favorites' to try to bust into, these are SO GOOD. The amount of force needed to slide the plate over to use is more than a toddler can muster, but not hard for an adult. It's very easy to plug things in, and take them out, but the baby doesn't even mess with these outlets anymore because the thrill of death is beyond his tiny finger strength. Installing a few of these in high kid-traffic areas has been WELL worth it! Thanks for a great product." —Katie Ackerman

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99.

    5. A double closet rod just might help your tiny toddler manage to get their clothes/backpacks on their own, while also adding a massive amount of space to the closets in your home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I like everything about this product. It is perfect for me. I had been using the Marie Kondo method for all my pants and leggings for two years. This saves more space and makes my closet look less cluttered. I hung all my thinner pants and leggings under my blouses. Easy to select. I am definitely happier. I gave away the plastic chest of drawers I had in the closet." —Sylvia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.18.

    6. A chiliPAD bed cooler because fretful sleepers deserve a blanket that can make their side of the bed warm *or* cold from the bottom up.

    ChiliSleep

    This has saved my little life this winter!! I was initially drawn to it because my husband and I both sleep hot, so until recently we had only used the cooling feature. It's wild how well this pad keeps you cool (especially because you can still keep a blanket on over you – for monster reasons). But our heat has been finicky this winter and the heating settings have truly kept us, and our hairless cats, from freezing at night. I. Love. This. Thing.

    BTW, this includes a reversible, hydro-powered Chili Cool Mesh™ Pad, thermal regulating control units, and a remote. The system uses hydropower and operates within 55-115 degrees F. You can also get the Ooler app to control the bed's temperature from your phone.

    Promising review: "This has been a game changer for me. Hot flashes and night sweats are gone and my sleep is much improved. I highly recommend this product." —Jenny D.

    Get it from ChiliSleep for $499+ (available in two styles and three sizes).

    7. A magnetic bobby pin tray that'll hold tight to your hair pins, getting you out of any ~hairy~ situations when your 'do doesn't quite stay in place.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this product. My bathroom drawer looks so organized now that my bobby pins aren’t all over the place. I loved that it came with bobby pins which I had no idea would be included! It's nice to also have some new bobby pins!" —Monica

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98 (available in two colors).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —JJ

    Get them from Amazon for $35.99 (available in two colors).

    9. A teaching alarm clock to help your children know when they're allowed to leave their room, giving you slightly more shut-eye in the a.m. Update the settings to your family's schedule and this lil' helper will light up when the kids are allowed to get up and out of bed.

    alarm clocks that say "I glow green when it's ok to wake!"
    Amazon

    One of my BuzzFeed coworkers wrote a review about how this clock is basically like giving the gift of sleep to parents with young children.

    Promising review: "We've had this clock for four years and it's still going strong. You can adjust the amount of time the green light stays on. You MUST wait until the green light comes on to enter the room or it won't work! If your child comes out before it's on, take them back to bed and walk out. We get them used to it (now with child #3, 9 months old) by telling them before closing the door at night 'Wait for your green alien to wake up!' It's a good last minute reminder. The only thing I'd change is that the dimmest light setting is still a bit bright for my light sleepers, so I have to lay a burp rag or something over the back to make it dimmer. I'm considering buying a second so the older kids can have theirs back!" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    10. A tube of Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara is gonna make your lashes as long as a Quentin Tarantino film.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using Lights, Camera, Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics for the past year, I got tired of breaking the bank over mascara. My sister suggested Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect and I IMMEDIATELY fell in love. It provides dramatic length and great volume. I can honestly say I can’t stop looking at my eyelashes in the mirror every single day because of how awesome they look. Also, it is very long-wearing. I go from an eight-hour workday right to the gym and sweat like crazy and this stuff doesn’t budge! I love it!!" —Carrie E. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    11. A set of fiberglass chopsticks that are dishwasher-safe and made with a no-slip design, so you can eat noodles without tasty bites slipping and sliding before they make it into your mouth.

    Glass noodles held up with chop sticks
    Amazon

    These also work great with hot foods, i.e. they won't get too hot when hanging out in a steaming bowl of broth.

    Promising review: "This is a quality set of chopsticks! The fiberglass is heavier than standard wood ones (obviously), but they are still easy to use. They don't feel that heavy in the hand. The tips are textured slightly for a better grip on food; this is really great with noodles. The top has a pretty design. I haven't had them very long, but they seem durable and relatively scratch resistant. They clean easily with soap and warm water (they're also dishwasher-friendly). I was looking for an affordable, re-useable set and originally considering stainless steel ones. But based on a number of reviews stating that the material on some wasn't true stainless steel, or they're too heavy, or they get too hot if left in a bowl, I ultimately went with this set. I'm very glad I did!" —nhcabin

    Get a box of 10 pairs from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four styles).

    12. A no-wire bra so your bewbs will have all-day support without feeling like they're in boob prison. Go ahead, keep this on even after you get home.

    Person wearing full cup bra
    Lively

    Promising review: "Looking for comfort? This is it! It's the most comfortable bra ever. I love the racer back option in the back as well." —Bernadette F.

    Get it from Lively for $35 (available in three colors and sizes 32A–34DD).

    13. A surprisingly aesthetic natural wood essential oil diffuser with a car vent clip that'll let you use all your favorite essential oils in your car, saving you from suffering through the scent of faux plastic pine.

    Amazon

    This comes with a lavender essential oil.

    Promising review: "I’m very particular when it comes to scent so I’m picky about choosing products for my house and car. I’ve always used car air fresheners but was looking for an alternative that wouldn’t give me a headache with an overpowering chemical scent for my long commutes. This oil diffuser is a great alternative to other generic brands. The scent of lavender essential oil is lush, soothing but not overpowering which is great for de-stressing during my commutes. You can also place it on top of your work desk for a subtle and soothing aroma. The diffuser came in high-quality packaging with two petite reeds sticks. Highly recommend it!" —Eric H.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A dishwasher-safe garlic peeler — simply toss your garlic in, press down, and roll to get perfectly peeled garlic in seconds. This is gentle enough to keep your freshly peeled garlic cloves intact while the grip from the material will keep the peelings inside as your cloves pop out, making meal prep mercilessly simple.

    Amazon

    This includes a ventilated case for storage.

    Promising review: "OK, this is DEFINITELY not a gimmick! Follow the instructions and this will save you time and sanity in the kitchen! Roll it with minimal pressure and it works like a champ. It also rinses very easily and dries quick. The case has holes on either end to ensure it dries completely in between uses when you toss it in a drawer. I will never hand/knife smash garlic and fight with those pesky skins sticking to everything ever again." —ThatKasper

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. A flexible spoon with a 1-tablespoon measure that can stir, flip, and add the perfect amount of oil every time you sauté.

    Silicone spatula spoon with tablespoon mark
    Amazon

    It's heat-resistant up to 600 degrees and designed with an ergonomic handle, stiff nylon core, and flexible angled head for easy stirring. You can also get a blender spatula, jar scraper, and assorted sizes of spoons from the same link.

    Promising review: "I use this for EVERYTHING! Not just for scraping jars, but getting every last bit out of the protein powder, for scraping down the sides of batter bowls, for mixing soups and stews while cooking, even as a spoon for testing. I now have three of these (in different colors) so I'll always have one at the ready." —Paul J DeSimone

    Get it from Amazon for $9 (available in four colors).

    16. A pack of five airtight silicone lids in different sizes to securely store leftovers without waisting a bunch of plastic wrap *or* wasting a bunch of time trying to find a perfectly sized container and lid.

    Food52

    These have saved many a bowl of leftovers in my place. I don't have space for lot of containers, so I was constantly using plastic wrap or plastic bags when I wanted to save food. It was an awful waste. These saved the day! They pack flat and the sizes fit on any container (even if I just leave my leftovers in the bowl I ate dinner in). I'm a sucker for this stuff.

    Promising review: "These are super cute. I love the colors and they work great. The array of sizes they came in is also very handy. In fact, these are so much cuter than the other options available online that my friends decided to get the same set. If you took the time to google other silicone lids your eyes will burn. For my purposes these are perfect. Highly recommend." —DemiChang

    Get them from Food52 for $40 (available in two colors).

    17. A quality wood cutting board made with naturally antibacterial camphor wood — these'll be easy on your knives, making them last a whole lot longer. Plus, they'll look lovely on display in your place.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    I started using Fab Slab cutting boards when I invested in my first really nice knife block set. I wanted a cutting board that would protect the integrity of my knives, and was hoping to find some that also looked nice (my millennial heart loves some good charcuterie) on display. These were the perfect pick! Be sure to check out their site to see their full collection of cutting boards.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    18. An Always Pan designed with a slippery nonstick surface, a vented top, a steaming basket, and a wooden spoon that hooks onto the handle for cooks who want a pan that truly does it all.

    Pan with lid off and cooked meal inside
    Our Place

    I own this pan and I'm pretty sure I'll never need to own another ever again. The spoon rest is genius, cleaning is a cinch, and it cooks all my ambitious Pinterest attempts perfectly. I'm not the only one who loves it here! Read my BuzzFeed coworker's full review to learn even more about this lovely kitchen staple (#1).

    Promising review: "Absolutely amazing! It is so versatile and easy to clean. It's not overwhelmingly big but it handles one pot meals like a champ. I am blown away." —Aileen R.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in five colors).

    19. An odor control trash can – it's gonna keep your kitchen smelling so clean you might forget you have trash in the first place.

    Person standing beside stainless steel trashcan
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the perfect trash receptacle for a modern kitchen. I like that it is not electric, so you never have to worry about changing a battery or having the lifting mechanism wear out. It's easy to use if you have wet hands because you can step on the foot pedal and it lifts easily. It's a classy addition to any kitchen and keeps smells contained. I highly recommend this trash container!" —bearyhot

    Get it from Amazon for $88.88+ (available in ten styles).

    20. A wall-mounted cat bed for pet parents who feel all ~bubbly~ inside when they fill their home with cool cat products.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this and so does my cat. It's such a great looking design and looks great on my wall. My only criticism is the dome was a little tricky to screw onto the main part. It isn't complicated its just a little awkward. Apart from that this cat bed/spaceship is awesome!" —Tom B

    Get it from Amazon for $140 (available in two colors).

    21. A Brooklinen pillow filled with down clusters, feathers, and a 100% cotton satin shell for equipping your bed with the very best when you plan to spend the majority of your weekends in it.

    Brooklinen

    Promising review: "This is like sleeping on a marshmallow cloud. It's hands down the best pillow I’ve ever owned. The mid-plush has a softness that almost feels like memory foam but not nearly as hot. I love these things!!" —Ryan A.

    Get it from Brooklinen for $69+ (available in two sizes and three fills).

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

    Marble design round diffuser
    Amazon

    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!" —Mindy R

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    23. A box of kombucha tablets that'll turn your tap water (or filtered water, if you're fancy like that) into kombucha! Betcha didn't see that comin' did ya?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The shipping was fast and these have an awesome taste. I've tried tons of kombucha but often hate how much space the bottles take up in my fridge — enter Qula! What a great idea to have kombucha whenever I want without a bunch of glass bottle waste! These are delicious and convenient." —vics

    Get it from Amazon for $15.

    24. A Vitamix immersion blender because we are deep into soup season aaaand if you give this to the home chef in your life you MIGHT get some sensational dinners from it. Just be sure to help with the prep work.

    Vitamix

    Promising review: "I saw Bobby Flay use this and I wanted to make something I saw on his show. It's so powerful and won't ever scratch any dish you use! It's well made and will last, just like my 25-year-old blender!! Top shelf! I always purchase top of the line appliances and Vitamix is the best. This is easy to use, is versatile, and powerful. It's now more convenient to make food and beverages." —Chris65

    Get it from Vitamix for $149.95.

    25. A Tchibo bean-to-brew single-serve coffee maker — an eco-friendly option for coffee consumers who want a luxe roasted brew (without a bit of climate change guilt). Single-use pods are a thing of the past, people!

    instagram.com, Tchibo

    This is the very first coffee machine I've had in my home (I figured it was time to make a break room in my apartment, since my husband and I weren't taking nearly enough breaks to chat by the water cooler). I wanted something that was more eco-friendly than traditional K-Cup pod machines, but didn't need a whole pot of coffee in the mornings. This machine is intuitive, easy to clean, and makes a boast-worthy brew. I think it's 100% worth the splurge for earth-conscious coffee drinkers.

    Get it on sale from Tchibo for $349 (originally $399; purchase includes two bags of whole bean Röst Frisch coffee).

    26. A vibrating facial brush — 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!" —Sophie

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

    27. A pair of aerating wineglasses that are really and truly gonna improve the taste of the cheap wine you and your BFF gulp down on all your The Bachelor viewing nights.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I got these for my mom and she loves them! They are great conversation pieces, and fun to use. The wine fans out and falls into the glass as pictured. She runs them through the dishwasher and hasn't had any issues cleaning them that way. These are fun for wine drinkers." —Kaitlyn G.

    Get them from Amazon for $55.27.

    28. A custom plush doll you can customize to look like your kiddo, or to look like one of their drawings. I don't think childhood toys could ever get cooler than that!

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed, Budsies

    I never knew what a doll I was until I got this lil' cutie in my life. The design process is simple and super satisfying. Just upload a photo with the outfit you want the doll to have, fill out the included chart to make sure they know your exact eye color, skin tone, and hair color, approve the check made by the designers, and wait on your incredible custom piece! Get ready to have your self esteem hit unhealthily happy levels.

    Get it from Budsies for $99 (originally $115).

    29. A pack of colorful reusable baking cups for bakers who want waste-free treats that still look good enough to gobble up.

    Amazon

    This 12-pack of food-grade silicone cups are safe to use in the freezer, microwave, and oven. They can handle temperatures of up to 500 degrees and come in pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

    Promising review: "These little thingies are perfect! I made some muffins with them and they came out incredibly easily with no residue on the cups at all. I didn't have to use grease or anything. The colors are bright and fun, and they you plenty of each color. These are slightly smaller than a regular cupcake pan/liner, which is actually perfect for my purposes. As others have mentioned, the cups are a bit on the flimsy side, so make sure they're on a baking sheet before you fill them because they can be difficult to transport once full." —kapplejack

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99.

    30. And an adjustable rolling pin that hits the exact width you need your baked goods rolled out at. This thing works so well it'd be worth spending some serious ~dough~ on. Fortunately, the thrifty price is just as sweet as the things you're gonna make with it.

    Amazon

    Promising Review: "Can I just say where have you been all my life? I ordered this specifically so I could use to make sugar cookies. It made my cookies go so much faster for a change! I used to get out a ruler trying to figure out if I had the right thickness or if the dough was rolled even enough (which I never did get right in the past). This roller allowed to me quickly and easily roll the whole batch of sugar cookies without getting frustrated! Super easy to use and clean up was also a snap. Would recommend this to any baker out there!" —LAD

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two styles).

    31. A nitro cold brew maker sure to make you espres-so excited about your daily cup (or, um, cups) of coffee.

    Stainless steel cold brew maker with curved spout
    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "This product is wonderful. I would buy it for every coffee lover in my life. You can mix and match flavors of coffee for a unique taste every refill. This product is meant to sit in the fridge (it's a cold brew!). My fridge isn't huge by any means but, while the coffee pot sits in the fridge, it never seems to be in my way! The coffee comes out delicious every time. It's very easy to use and easy to clean. I can't imagine a morning without a cold cup of this brew!" —Brooklyn

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $200.

    32. A snazzy spiral bound notebook and habit tracker sticky notes – they're gonna turn your erratic organizational skills into an A-type's paradise.

    Target

    Get the notebook for $8.99 and the habit tracking notes for $5.99, both from Target.

    33. Bespoke Post's Suite box with Grown Alchemist soap and lotion, two plush hand towels, a bathroom tray, and Palo Santos sticks. Grab this hotel-worthy set and you'll totally come up with excuses to wash your hands.

    Products in lifestyle shot
    Bespoke Post

    I have this set! If you grow fatigued with traditional "floral fresh" soap scents, this is *such* a great set to try out! The lotion is a nice citrus and the soap is a musky botanical mix that I will honestly be buying forever more. The entire set is gorgeous (I actually have it all on display on my bathroom caddy because I'm a sucker for amber bottles) and the quality is obvious.

    Get it from Bespoke Post for $55 (or $45 with a club membership).

    34. A Cuisinart electric knife for anyone who finds carving meat even harder than cooking it.

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Promising review: "I'm so glad I got this electric knife, whether I try a super thin slice or thick, each slice is perfect. I love it." —Cindy

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $49.99.

    35. A suction placemat that won't slide around when your toddler attempts to swipe away their uneaten broccoli bits.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am completely satisfied with this purchase! The mat itself is heavier than others I have seen and it does not slide around. It is also dishwasher safe which makes my life easier. I like the fact that there is a built in bowl because that also means I'm not cleaning a bowl and plate. The suction prevents the mats from sliding, it does not prevent anyone from peeling it off the table. Yes, my two year old does this occasionally but it isn't the placemat's fault." —Jennifer Heinrich

    Get it from Amazon for $22+ (available in four colors).

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

    Amazon

    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." —Gringras

    Get it from Amazon for $15.90 (available in 22 colors).

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This six-pod kit includes Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, thyme, Thai basil and mint, with a bottle of plant food. It works thanks to its energy-efficient LED lights (that automatically turn on and off every day, no need to deal with them yourself). It grows up to six plants at a time, that can grow up to 12 inches. The plants grow in water, not soil, so there's not even a mess.

    Promising review: "I have a black thumb, which I think is important to add to this review. I planted everything photographed Jan. 3, 2019 and I took this photo this morning (Feb. 5, 2019; above left). It takes care of itself and the plants grow a little bit more each day. It's the most exciting part of my morning routine — while my coffee brews I admire my plants!" —Kristy Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $99.97 (available in three styles).

    38. An Apple Magic Keyboard designed with quick scrolling, document navigation, full-sized arrows, and increased stability in the keys, so you'll be able to work (and, more importantly, game) with ease.

    Keyboard beside reviewer's laptop
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Truly I am obsessed with this keyboard. It connects to both my Mac and my PC desktop (not at the same time though) and it's lightweight but quality in its design and structure. Everyone laughs when I whip it out to use but hey, I don't care for the Mac keyboard anyway. LOL." —Martina Britt Yelverton

    Get it from Amazon for $139.

    39. An adjustable baby carriage that's gonna help your younger sibling see that strolling around with a colicky newborn, fidgety baby, or active toddler can still be a walk in the park. Um, sort of.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am very happy with the purchase of this stroller. It's very easy to assemble. This comes with a bassinet for a baby and a chair for a toddler, and a rain/mosquito cover." —Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $459+ (available in four colors).

    40. A runaway alarm clock that'll play music and run around the bedroom until someone grabs it. This'll have you up and ~on a roll~ in plenty of time.

    Promising review: "I have been eyeing the Dyson Blow-Dryer for a while. I knew it was expensive, but I was still determined to gift it to myself. So far, I have only used the diffuser to dry my curls and nozzle blow cold air into my scalp. The diffuser is an excellent tool. The lowest heat option is sufficiently hot enough that I’m able to dry my hair after styling it (soaked and wet) in under 20 minutes. I have 3C, bra length hair, medium thickness. It took 30-40 minutes with my previous dryer with a diffuser attachment, but it never dried my roots fully. I’m very impressed with the heat, strength, and effectiveness. This is my holy grail." —Anonymous

    Promising review: "I have a Jack Russell terrier and she absolutely loves this! Even though she is short and small, she is still able to flip the beakers with her snout and paw. She looks forward to this game every day. We fill it with her food and some cut-up carrots. She loves to keep flipping, knowing there are different treats." —Angie

    Promising review: "This chair exceeded my high expectations for comfort, utility, and adaptability to my spinal and gluteal requirements...as in keeping my back properly postured and my butt comfortably positioned. The price is still reasonable, consistent with its sturdy composition and its many adjustability features. I am delighted that I executed my well thought-out decision to purchase this office chair for my study!" —TonyO

    Hatch Sleep, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    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

    Promising review: "I've had regular leather wallets for over 20 years. This is a huge improvement. I've only had mine for a few weeks and I'm already as fast at checkout as I was before. My slacks and jeans are now much more comfortable! This thing is solidly built, slim as advertised, and has never yet become a nuisance. For me, it has been an authentic life hack." —Duh?

    47. And finally, a smart water bottle for anyone who simply wants to drink more water in the new year.

    Express

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product. I purchased it because I needed to be more conscious of how much water I’m consuming since I don’t drink a lot of water. Also, I get distracted often and find myself not drinking anything throughout the day. This takes that away. It lights up when I haven’t had water in a while and it calculates the amount of water I’m consuming. I’m also able to set a goal and follow up throughout the week. Now, I’m drinking the amount of water I need to be and I couldn’t be happy. I ordered the ORANGE but it’s more of a coral color in my opinion, it can be confused as pink." —MadameAria

    Get it from Express for $59.95 (available in four colors).
