    1. A gooseneck smart kettle that's pretty much the fanciest way you'll ever make tea. It comes with its own app, so you can choose from four preset settings to brew the perfect cup of tea every time, and schedule when you want it to start boiling water (aka right before you wake up, so you don't have to wait even five minutes to get your Earl Grey steeping). It's also super sleek and will look oh so stylish on your countertop.

    2. A Drybar blow-dryer brush for a just-stepped-out-of-the-salon blowout every time. It's super easy to use, reduces frizz and adds a ton of shine. For what you would pay for a professional blowout, this baby will pay for itself in just a few uses.

    3. A Roomba robot vacuum cleaner so you can take a nap while someone else cleans your home for once (yes, a robot counts as a "someone"). It works on multiple surfaces including carpet and hardwood, and is totally customizable — you can control everything from scheduling cleaning times to what rooms are vacuumed with an easy-to-use app.

    4. A rechargeable facial cleansing brush for an at-home facial anytime you want. Its high-frequency sonic vibrations clean all skin types, and its five customizable speeds allow you to cleanse, exfoliate and massage your skin, all with just this one tool.

    5. A matte black Nespresso coffee and espresso maker so you can enjoy a fancy barista-style espresso without having to leave the house or mess with any hard-to-use traditional espresso makers.

    6. A mini instant camera to capture all the amazing memories that this summer will hold. It has a one-touch selfie mode, prints the cutest little photos right from the camera, and comes in six fun colors, including this adorable bubblegum pink. One reviewer said, "it was all the rage when I took it out, everyone wanted a photo," so be prepared.

    7. A 12-pound solid knit weighted blanket for ultimate comfort and reassuring relaxation, in a stylish blanket that will blend into a wide variety of decors. The smooth chunky knit texture feels super soft against the skin and the blush color makes it a great accent for your bed or sofa.

    8. A 3-in-1 ceramic flat iron that straightens, creates waves and curls, so it's the only tool you'll need to pack for your summer vacay. It leaves your hair smooth and sleek, and unlike cheap straighteners, this one locks in moisture to protect your hair's health, so it won't end up fried or frizzed out.

    9. A Ninja blender to easily crush, blend and puree fruits, veggies and anything else you throw in it. Reviewers say it's worth it because the powerful blades get rid of any chunks, ensuring your smoothies are always super smooth. Best of all, you can throw all the pieces in the dishwasher once you're done blending — no annoying handwash cleanup required.

    10. A pair of noise-cancelling wireless earbuds to block out the noise on WFH days when the neighbors decide to have a rave at 10 a.m. (or mow their lawn for hours, same diff). They hold a charge for seven hours, have a built-in microphone for calls, and customizable sound settings, so you can always get the exact sound you want.

    11. A Cuisinart air fryer and toaster oven that has over 5,000 5-star reviews — that's a lot of satisfied customers. There's a reason everyone has jumped on the air fryer bandwagon — crispy "fried" food without the grease and heartburn. This one doubles as a toaster oven, so it'll pretty much be the only kitchen appliance you ever use.

    12. A 10-inch cooling gel memory foam mattress so you can finally get rid of that old hand-me-down mattress you've had for over a decade (you know, the one that has a giant dent in the shape of your body right in the middle). It's cooling, hypoallergenic and is delivered in a box directly to your door, so there's no need to drag a giant mattress down hallways and stairs.

    13. A KitchenAid stand mixer that you'll see is worth the hype the second you get it. It's an investment, but it'll literally last you for years and years, and help you celebrate every milestone with perfectly mixed cake batter or cookie dough. Plus, it looks beautiful out on your counter!

    14. A professional blue-light teeth whitening kit so you can get your pearly whites white again. The hands-free device has a blue light that whitens and kills bacteria and also massages your gums to prevent gum disease. Use it for two minutes at a time and you'll have that celeb-white-teeth-smile in no time.

    15. A Ring video wireless doorbell that's motion activated and sends alerts to your phone, so no matter where you are, you can tell what's going on at your front door. It has a two-way communication setting for added safety and so you can scare your friends while they walk up to your door (not that we would ever do something like that). Nothing is worth more than peace of mind, and this sleek little security device is definitely worth its price tag.

    16. A bread maker that literally does it all for you — kneads the dough, lets it rise and then bakes. All you have to do is eat.

Wake up to the delicious smell of homemade bread any day you want, with minimum effort on your part. 🍞
