    1. This scratch-off movie list, because nobody wants to spend half their night debating over which movie to watch.

    Etsy

    I may or may not be calling myself out with this one. Many a night has been spent jumping from streaming service to streaming service, looking for something that both my husband and I could agree on. This chic movie poster features 100 of the most popular, iconic films of all time, allowing you to scratch them off as you go.

    Buy for $25.60 from Etsy.

    2. This toilet roll holder, which will end arguments about who didn't replace the loo paper β€” because there's a handful right there.

    Amazon

    This metal, freestanding toilet roll holder is about to be the most useful accessory in your bathroom. A handy hook dispenses paper, while storage below holds two extra rolls. If that weren't enough, it also comes fitted with a tray on which you can place wet wipes or, more likely, your phone β€” which you can't even be separated from when on the loo, can you?

    Buy for $41.26 from Amazon Australia.

    3. This Adidas Originals Archive MR2 watch β€” so stylish you'll never take it off (and hopefully never be late for a date again).

    Adidas Originals

    This retro-inspired watch has the on-trend chunkiness of past watch styles (I swear my dad has this exact shape), but all the benefits of current technology. Its chain bracelet is constructed from sculpted stainless steel and face of hardened mineral crystal. If you've been looking for a signature item β€” this is it.

    Buy for $247.49 from The Iconic.

    4. This three-in-one laundry hamper, because no matter how many times you tell your partner to separate whites and colours, they just chuck it all in at once.

    Amazon

    This laundry cart has three detachable, washable bags, each for either different members of the household or separating whites, darks and colours from each other. Set on wheels, you can move it to different parts of the house β€” including in front of the TV, when ironing on its flat top surface. Plus, a built-in net under the bags serves to hold other dirty items you don't want mixed with your clothes.

    Buy for $89.99 from Amazon Australia.

    5. This neck book light, which will settle arguments when one of you wants to read and the other wants to sleep.

    Amazon

    Instead of debating the benefits of getting another chapter in versus an extra hour of sleep, get yourself one of these silicone, adjustable reading lights. Made to sit lightly around the neck and on shoulders, it can last for eight hours (who needs sleep anyway?) and comes with flood light and spotlight modes. You can also use it on nighttime runs.

    Buy for $25.99 from Amazon Australia.

    6. This shoe rack and bench, because your partner probably hates how you track dirt through the house daily.

    Amazon

    Love me a twofer. This shoe rack and bench will neatly store your most frequently worn shoes by the door for easy access β€” while also giving you a place to put your tush to tie your laces (that one-foot wobble thing isn't really efficient). It's also a lot more attractive than the metal alternatives you've contemplated in the past.

    Buy for $88.88 from Amazon Australia.

    7. This ridiculously cute tube squeezer, which will help you avoid heated discussions over mangled tubes and wasted paste.

    Amazon

    Change paste-wasting ways with this simple yet effective tool. All you have to do is thread the end of your toothpaste tube through the centre and rotate once for a portion-controlled dab of paste. Genius.

    Buy a single squeezer for $10.45 from Amazon Australia.

    8. These wooden dice, which will settle once and for all, "What's for dinner tonight?"

    TwoTmbleweeds / Etsy

    If every discussion around meal option ends with ordering in pizza, save your health with these laser-engraved wooden dice. Each die represents either a protein (both meat and vegetarian!), cooking method, carb, herb, bonus ingredient or seasonal veggie. Throw them a few times at the start of the week before your supermarket run for a fun and easy way to plan the following days' meals!

    Buy for $38.46 from Etsy.

    9. This drain snake, which will painlessly remove hair before you can argue about who's responsible for clogging the pipes.

    Amazon

    If I'm honest, I can't look at this photo without gagging a touch. I imagine doing the job itself would be much the same, but it needs to be done, so might as well get it over and done with faster, right? There are two different lengths to choose from, 50cm and 60cm, so no matter how far down you've managed to shove your hair, the tiny claws along its length will be able to pull it all out in one go.

    Buy a pack of four for $8.99 from Amazon Australia.

    10. This handy magnet, which will prevent you from having to remind your partner to run the damn dishwasher.

    Amazon

    Few things get under the skin more than dirty dishes being stacked in clean loads. This handy device sticks to your dishwasher via mini-magnets, reminding everyone whether you bothered to empty the dishwasher last night. It also has a "running" setting, for those with quiet dishwashers.

    Buy for $14.99 from Amazon Australia.

    11. These bed sheet fasteners, because they refuse to ever make the bed β€” these will at least bring them one step closer.

    Amazon

    All the tossing and turning in bed has rendered the elastic edges of my fitted sheet utterly useless. These suspender-looking devices clip to a corner of each end of the sheet, under your mattress, meaning you can have a jumping competition on your bed and your sheets won't budge.

    Buy a pack of four for $12.50 from Amazon Australia.

    12. This phone safe, because you no longer want to nag them about their phone being out during dinner.

    Amazon

    If you or your partner suffer from a serious phone addiction (I mean, who doesn't?), use this phone cage as a way of ensuring meal times stay a time for face-to-face connection. Featuring slots for six phones, you can also use it for your first dinner party, after quarantine is over.

    Buy for $29.95 from Amazon Australia.

    13. This birthstone necklace, for the person who's useless at remembering birthdays.

    Silveristic / Etsy

    So, it's not going to help anyone with the specific date, but you can at least recall the month of your partner and/or offspring, with this multi-stone, dainty necklace. You're able to custom design it, with as many or as few stones as there are members in your family, select necklace length and choose from gold, silver or rose gold settings.

    Buy for $59.29+ from Etsy.

    14. This magnetic phone holder for your car, because no point getting into fights about directions when you can just use your mounted phone and its GPS.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    This phone holder comes with a magnetic disk that you can either stick to your phone or your phone case, for instant 360Β° GPS viewing ability.

    Promising review: "I have been through so many phone cradles. Time after time, phones will just fall after driving over a speed bump and not provide the security they promise. This magnetic device is brilliant β€” I never have to worry about my phone falling and can view the screen in both landscape and portrait mode with a single rotation. The base of the holder extends and tilts in any direction, making it perfect to use in either the driver or passenger front seat."

    β€”Mariela Summerhays

    Buy for $13.59 from Amazon Australia.

    15. This Bluetooth thermometor, which will accurately track the changing of temperatures in your home or wherever it is placed β€” so no longer will you have to argue your case for turning up the heat.

    Amazon

    Should you desire hard evidence that yes, it is unseasonably warm or cold and we should change the air-con temperature, this here is the tool for you. Itty-bitty, it can be placed anywhere, indoors or outdoors, and will send to your phone time and date-stamped stats on highs, lows and averages of temperatures. It has a range of 75 metres and a single battery lasts for over a year.

    Buy for $79.50 from Amazon Australia.

    16. And finally, this cheeky vinyl sticker, which will leave no excuse for having forgotten to put the seat down again.

    Geekals / Etsy

    This self-adhesive vinyl sticker will say what you are so tired of repeating, saving your breath and relationship. It also comes in five other colours.

    Buy for $8 from Etsy.

    The two of you, growing old together because you've solved all your petty squabbles.
