1. Bag clips that'll basically act as an extra set of hands in the kitchen.

Promising review: "I cook all of my meals and freeze them once a month. These stands have been a godsend. I can prep, pack, and freeze 6 meals in under 10 minutes. That means in an hour I knock out more than a month's worth of dinners for my family of 8. This holds the smallest and tallest bags and keeps the outside of the bag clean. It leaves my hands free to load up the bags with all my healthy goodies. They're not flimsy and are made from sturdy material, yet fold flat for easy storage. I could go on and on about these, they are such a great product. I definitely recommend." —Ashton KH Wilson

Price: $8.87

2. A hot air brush for blowing your hair out without having to hold a blow dryer AND brush.,

Promising review: "This product is a game changer. I have thin but very curly/kinky hair that has become very damaged due to years and years of flat ironing. With this product, I can style my hair in less time and WITHOUT a flat iron. It gives me beautiful, soft curls that I've gotten tons of compliments on." —S.G.

Price: $25.49

3. A pair of lobster-esque claws to clamp spoons, ladles, and the such right where you need them.

Promising review: "Sturdy enough to hold my largest wooden spoons, yet small enough to clip to the fan hood over my stove. Stays cool to the touch when clipped to a pot and the 'C' holds my utensils nicely balanced, so no more drippings on my stove top! A nice addition to my useful gadgets collection!" —MickiRom

Price: $8.99


4. Itty-bitty snails that will diligently hold your tea bags in place.

Promising review: "I think these are the cutest little snail tea bag holders. They help keep your tea bag from falling into your cup. They can be quite the conversation piece. Very unique, which suits me perfectly: I am always looking for things that are out of the ordinary. Love 'em." —JAB

Price: $1.28

5. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer for anyone who can't live without fresh-made guac.

Promising review: "I am a firm believer in owning as few specialty kitchen tools as possible, because they can pile up. However, this one is a must-have. The multi-slicer side is fantastic. The rounded edge allows you to scrape the avocado from its skin, while slicing the avocado itself at the same time. The result is perfect avocado slices in one swift motion! The pit remover in the center is better then a knife because it has three blades that go into the pit at once, making the pit less likely to fall off when you're trying to remove it." —Amazon Customer

Price: $9.95

7. A non-slip jar opener that'll make you feel like you have Popeye-level strength.

Promising review: "This little jar opener is better than sliced bread! I have had difficulty for YEARS opening jars: small hands and a couple of thumb injuries have made it nearly impossible for me to unhinge the lids. You know, it gets really embarrassing to keep going from door to door, looking for someone in the neighborhood to help me out. I ordered this opener and I could just kick myself for not doing it ten years ago. It's lightweight, but sturdy enough to get the job done. It stores flat in the kitchen drawer. And it has opened every single jar I've placed in it, from tiny ketchup bottle lids to gigantic peanut butter ones. No more banging the jars on the counter, running them under hot water, or aggravating my sore thumbs just to complete a recipe. I'll never have to ask for help again!" —L. Ott

Price: $9.95


8. An electrifying book about ladies who've proved that going above and beyond is just a normal day in the life.

Promising review: "Full of beautiful artwork featuring 100 rule-breaking, precedent-setting women, this delightful volume is not only the perfect coffee table accent (all the pretty pictures!), but it's a brilliant and inspiring read to boot. The depictions are very stunning, and the write ups that accompany each illustration are jammed with useful tidbits of information. Who knew a history lesson could be so much fun?" —Eileen Chai

Price: $12.46

9. A set of three silicone spatulas that resist heat, stains, and odors.

Promising review: "I bought these for my hobby of bread-making. My wife loved them so much that I had to buy another set, plus one for my sister-in-law. They are soft and flexible with enough rigidity to completely clean out mixing bowls and pans. I have had one set for over two years and they've held up well even with frequent passes through the dishwasher." —Mick61

Price: $7

10. A three-in-one lens (super wide, fish-eye, and macro) to clip on to your phone for unique pictures that take on a new perspective.

Promising review: "These are extremely functional lenses for an incredible price. I took these with me on my trip back home over the holidays and EVERYONE was asking me where I'd gotten them, how much they cost, etc. They're especially useful for landscape pictures (say on a hike or at a scenic point) and also for selfies, since your arm no longer needs to be abnormally long to get some distance between you and the camera." —samshimo

Price: $11.99

11. An ice cube tray you can slide into a crowded freezer horizontally *or* vertically—with no spills.

Promising review: "This is the best ice cube tray there is. I did a stupid amount of research and testing to find this; 'stupid' because, well... it's just an ice cube tray. It works even better than they describe it: you fill it with water, swipe your hand across to get out the excess, and seal the lid. You can put it in your freezer sideways, carry it upside down, whatever. Afterwards, the ice is super easy to get out: you twist it once, and then—since they are a half moon shape—you press one side of the cubes you want and they slide out. The plastic is high quality: my freezer is set much cooler than average to keep booze cold, and the plastic stays flexible and not brittle. I usually don't write reviews, but just buy this freakin' thing already." —bcomstock15

Price: $9.99


12. A top-rated teasing comb with a mix of boar and nylon multi-level bristles to create mega height with only a few brushes.

Promising review: "I was given one of these in a styling class, it was a REVELATION. AMAZING. I lost it in the midst of a move, and I went to my local Ulta to find a replacement. I bought a few different ones, but nothing comes close to this one! It's inexpensive, but it's SO much better than any of the more expensive ones. Buy this!" —Ajo

Price: $5.79

13. A meditation book that "help[s] you find peace with the challenges that surround you. Because they are f*cking everywhere."

Promising review: "Do you have a stressful job? Do you ever get so frustrated you can actually feel your blood boil? This book is for you. It isn't very many pages, but it's perfect if I need to decompress and don't have a lot of time... which is most of the time. The photos are beautiful and the captions are hilarious and help pull me back to reality. There is nothing better than diffusing tension with laughter." —Meg

Price: $10.66

14. A set of four brightly-colored bowls to use for prep work *or* serving.

Promising review: "We were so impressed with the first set of these bowls, that we ordered another. These bowls are perfect. They're high quality and made in the USA! We like that they consist of safe materials and that they're microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe. They're also lightweight, non-slip, and the sizes are exactly what we need in the kitchen. We thew away our old plastic bowls that showed marks inside from utensils, had stains, and were made of questionable materials. I think these are made to last and would make great gifts." —Wendy Rush

Price: $14.51

15. Hair ties that will leave no marks on your hair when you remove them.

Promising review: "I like these hair ties because they don't snag, pull, or break my hair. Not always the most secure, but I'm really happy with them. When/if a piece of my hair comes out, I can tuck it right back in to the hair tie without redoing my whole hairstyle." —Heather A. Gunnerson

Price: $7.95


16. A silicone pastry mat printed with measurements to make it easier to roll your dough into *just* the right size.

It also doubles as a baking liner!

Promising review: "This mat saved the day during my marathon baking sessions for Christmas. The mat stayed in place on my clean counter top so I could roll out pie crusts and sugar cookies. I used the size guides to press out biscuit dough to the size of the pan before cutting out the circles (to make sure I got the most out of each batch) and they were uniform in size. The mat was easy to clean, dry off, and fold for storage. This was supposed to be a Christmas present but my husband gave it to me early so I could utilize it and I'm so glad he did!" —Tawny9753

Price: $10.02

17. A fruit and vegetable peeler that fits right into the palm of your hand.

Promising review: "This is my favorite peeler! It uses a natural motion and the peeler works very well. I already own one of these: I panic-ordered this one because I couldn't find mine and after peeling a mere 6 potatoes with my old peeler, I decided I couldn't just wait for it to turn up! (Of course, I nearly immediately found it ... but I did not cancel this order because I am happy to have a spare!)." —Carolyn M.

Price: $6.99

18. A set of ever-so-delicate fairy lights to add a bit of ~magic~ to your decor.

Promising review: "Perfect battery operated lights for quickly adding a little romance to your evening. The length is perfect and the color is a very nice warm white, not anywhere near those obnoxious pure white LEDs." —Nathan

Price: $5.99
