    2. A customized AirPods case so you can keep those buds safe, sound, and ready to use. (Your name on there will also come in handy if you want to differentiate all the cases — and thieves 😂 — in the house).,

    5-star reviews: 6,490+

    It's from a small business based in Vancouver, Canada! The case is anti-slip, anti-scratch, and dirt resistant. It's also compatible with AirPods wireless charging and AirPods Pro.

    Promising review: "I must say this is a great product for a great price. It adds the protection I need from scratches when I take my AirPods in and out of my purse and when I lay them around. The name customization is nice and the font is neat. However, I did order two cases and one of my cases did not have the name centered. I was able to reach out to the seller and they were prompt and responsive about being sure to fix it and they allowed me to keep my original one, which I thought was very courteous of them even though I was ready to ship it back! I received my order within a reasonable time and I received my replacement just as fast. The keychain that attaches to the case is sturdy and handier than I thought. The AirPod cables are great for around the neck usage and it makes them harder to drop or lose while working out or doing a lot of moving. I would buy again and again from this seller. Quality product and customer service." —Shakeeya

It took less than five minutes to set up and it comes in a little carrying case for when you want to put it away. It comes with a 10-ft cord and a hook with anchor. No additional hardware needed to install." —djmaximus

    Promising review: "These have been a GAME CHANGER in this house!! My son has always begged me for Uncrustables but my wallet didn’t agree with them. I LOVE being able to make them at home and customize them to exactly what they would like them filled with! I make two weeks' worth of sandwiches at a time and store them in sandwich bags in the freezer so in the morning during the school year we can just grab and go! Love them!" —Katherine Smaczniak

    5-star reviews: 1,970+

    Promising review: "Ever since I purchased my wireless Bose earbuds, I always hated having to use another set when I was on an airplane with the seat-back entertainment system. I tried many different models to connect the system to my Bluetooth headsets until I came across this one, and it is amazing! It seamlessly connects to my headset, very clear and reliable audio, and it takes the stress away from having to carry multiple headsets! Thank you!!!" —Ryan Malloy

    5-star reviews: 1,000+

    The brand'll send you new razors every one to three months — you select the frequency based on how often you shave. My colleague Rebecca O'Connell uses Billie blades and loves 'em. Peep her review ahead:

    "Billie is just the most wonderful company, and every time I take a shower, I wonder if I should write them fan mail. First of all, everything they design is ADORABLE, so even if their razors were dull or flimsy, I'd still be a loyal fan. But luckily, their razors are as sharp as they are sharp looking. The handle is super lightweight and easy to grip. The razor heads are surrounded in a layer of soap, so they glide beautifully over skin without irritating it. Billie makes great razors, and it's awesome that they're so affordable. If only they could go back in time and stop me from paying absurd amounts of money on pharmacy brand razors in my youth."

    Get the starter kit from Billie for $9 (and then four replacement cartridges for $9 when you need them). Also peep our full Billie razor subscription review for more deets!

    8. A mixed pack of hair jewelry including cuffs, cowrie shells, hoops, and other charms to further enhance the beauty of your locks, faux locks, cornrows, box braids, or twists.,,

    5-star reviews: 1,880+

    There's just SO MUCH you can do with these beautiful hair accessories. Despite how they look, all of them are actually flexible so you can tighten or loosen them to fit thick or thin braids/locks/twists. I love putting them in my twists. Initially, I used to just use the gold cuffs but now when I twist my hair up, I like to add dangling charms in there too for some extra funk, you know? If you typically get twists and leave 'em at that, then accessorizing with these might be a cool switch-up.

    Promising review: "Sometimes i wear them and the clip kind of opens up and the charm slides out, so be careful or go in and tighten them. Upgraded my hairstyle from cute to very cute, love them." —Simona D.

    Get the pack from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three finishes).

    9. A pair of compression ankle braces that, per reviewers, will help bring a lil' extra comfort if you experience tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, general foot pain, or swelling.

    5-star reviews: 15,890+

    Promising review: "I have to say I bought these for my daughter who complains about her severe foot pain from standing all day at her job in the pharmacy and read many reviews on these socks so I purchased, and they are the bomb! My daughter wants more and wears them at night and every day, even when not working. She says she has so much relief! Don't hesitate to buy these. They really do work!" —Danielle McMiller

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes S/M–L/XL and eight colors).

    10. Dental health powder you could simply sprinkle on your fur babe's food and WALLAH — clean teeth and fresher breath so their kisses come with all their love but none of the EW.

    5-star reviews: 1,840+

    Promising review: "I bought this hoping for the best and much to my surprise it really works. I'm on the second bottle for my dogs and this has taken the majority of the tartar off their teeth. It beats spending $300 getting their teeth cleaned considering they also don't have to be put under anesthetic. I'm happy and my dogs are happy and that's what really matters." —Critic

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    11. A roll-up drying rack to put atop your sink and let dishes dry on, even in the face of a double sink (score!) and minimal counter space (meh!). 

    Drying rack over sink

    5-star reviews: 4,590+

    Promising review: "LOVE! I've been told before that I have commitment issues, but this thing will be with me for life! It fits perfectly over my farmhouse sink. It supports a lot of weight — I can pile my heavy glasses/plates/pots and pans on it, and it is extremely sturdy. Nothing slides off either and the material grips the sink well." —Leah

    Get it from Amazon for $16.87+ (available in two sizes).

    Check out a similar over-the-sink rack with racks for plates and cups from Amazon for $17.87.

    5-star reviews: 38,150+

    Promising review: "I have probably far too many house plants. But, I take my job as their caretaker very seriously, and these little nutrient stakes have helped me tremendously. They are super easy to use. You get a lot of them (I replace mine every six months), and they are pretty incognito when placed in the pot itself. Once I run out, which will not be anytime soon as so many come in the pack, I will absolutely be purchasing again." —Isabella Medders

    Get them from Amazon for $2.88 (available in a pack of 24 and more quantity options).

    13. A beautiful, dainty, and affordable birthstone ring perfect for anyone wanting signature jewelry that'll enhance your lewk without doing too much.

    5-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "This is by far the best brow product that has ever existed. The formula isn’t too crunchy, it doesn’t smell weird, and it doesn’t smear. It makes my brows look beyond what I ever dreamed they would look like. This product volumizes and thickens my brows perfectly. I’ve already recommended Boy Brow to everyone I know!" —Jade

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in five shades).

    5-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "I have dry skin with hyperpigmentation and spots. I use it twice a week about two to three days apart. You should definitely follow the instructions on the bottle because it can burn you and leave you super red. The spots on my cheeks have been clearing up and my complexion looks a lottttttt clearer, which has made me feel positive about this product. It works for you when you follow the directions." —christal17

    Get it from Sephora for $7.20

    18. A mini comb that'll FINALLY detangle and remove those high-key disgusting eye boogers that try to infiltrate your pet's precious face.

    5-star reviews: 2,800+

    Promising review: "My cockapoo had tear staining as a pup but as an adult he just gets that goop in the corner of his inner eyes. Sometimes I don’t catch the goop fast enough and it hardens in his muzzle. Even when I do, the goop is slimy and difficult to remove even with dog wipes. This tool is a miracle! Small, lightweight, and a good value for the price. Just one comb through and I got the sticky, wet goop. A few more comb throughs and I found eye gunk that was buried in his muzzle. Most importantly, this comb removed the debris without causing any discomfort to my pooch. In fact, he seemed to enjoy it! Just look at the pictures." —Joanna

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    19. An aloe ring dish so you'll have a cute place to store your jewelry and ZERO excuse to leave your jewelry laying all over the place.

    5-star reviews: 1,410+

    Promising review: "Got this for my wife, who would leave rings in an old lid while she went off to work (nurse, she wears a silicone ring to work bc diamonds cut gloves). She also loves succulents so I got this for her. I was expecting a tiny little thing but it's about 5 inches wide at the base, great for holding earrings and other jewelry. It was also large enough that it doesn't give off a cheap vibe. We are both extremely happy with this holder!!!" —F. Todd

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in three succulent styles).

    20. A webcam cover in case you're like me and think the government prob watches you via your laptop as you bark back at your dog and take meetings in dress shirts sans pants. But au revoir, paranoia. This'll literally have you ~covered~.

    Promising review: "I always thought that putting something in front of your camera was reserved for government paranoid people, but, 1) that is a real worry and 2) this thing comes in handy for everyday life too. I work at an organization that uses a lot of conference lines with external clients. Having this manual option to prevent others from seeing my video is such a nice piece of mind. It doesn't block the lens when opened and is super easy to apply. I also love that it is super discreet, and doesn't prevent my laptop from closing properly." —Manders

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    21. This stainless-steel foot-filing rasp to file the rough, peeling skin on your feet so they'll be baby bottom smooth!

    Promising review: "I have BAD feet. Like genetically bad. I have tried EVERYTHING. I’ve spent an excessive amount of money on foot masks, foot scrubs, pedicures, pumice stones, foot files, etc. Nothing worked. This fixed my feet in five minutes. I was actually in shock. I haven’t had 'soft' feet in years. I literally feel like I have new feet. Best $10 I ever spent." —Hdb

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    22. Essence's Lash Princess Mascara will give you the pretty, fluttery, Disney princess-level lashes you adore in just a couple swipes. Folks are gonna think you've found a fab pair of falsies and they'll want this link when you tell 'em the real tea.

    5-star reviews: 141,030+

    Promising review: "I have to be honest, for a 'cheap' three-pack mascara, I did NOT have high expectations. These, however, exceeded my expectations and went MUCH MUCH farther. I had been buying a certain $25/tube brand (rhymes with truepique) and I like these just as much!! I’m saving a TON of money and like my lashes just as much." —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    23. Schick dermaplaning razors to rid yourself of any unwanted peach fuzz, upper lip hair, chin hair, or whatever stray hairs you want to disappear like WALLAH, magic! ✨

    5-star reviews: 95,100+

    Promising review: "This is the best face razor I have ever used. It took my hair off so easily. Extremely good quality. I am a licensed cosmetologist and do makeup on clients, and I feel like it makes my skin look flawless after I put my foundation on. I love these and will continue to purchase. Price is also good for the quality of the product." —Megan Markvicka

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

    24. Soft, high-waisted leggings that shoppers compare to the ones from big label brands but per the reviews? Competition's over cuz these babies entered the chat and you'll find it very difficult to return to the others after these have their say.

    5-star reviews: 45,280+

    Promising review: "Holy crap, these leggings are amazing. Without exaggeration, they are the most comfortable item of clothing I've ever put on my body. I'm 5'10" and I often find 'one size' to be too short, but these fit down to my ankle. The best part is, the top doesn't roll and they don't slide down. Keeping in mind I'm wearing them during winter, they also didn't make me sweat. I didn't want to take them off. I need to order a billion pairs, including a few to wear to bed." —Avery T

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in one-size straight and one-size plus-sizes, three styles, and 21 colors).

    25. Glossier Cloud Paint liquid blush to rosy up those cheeks a lil (or A LOT). It'll come in so many buildable colors, no way you won't find one you adore. (Also: Coral on cheeks? Severely underrated blush shade. Get into it, cuties!)

    Glossier, BuzzFeed / Nusrat

    This fan-favorite blush has a gel-cream formula and blurring pigments meant to NOT accentuate pores and texture. My colleague Nusrat Sultana (shown above) uses this formula and says "it's so seamless and hydrating that it almost feels like a moisturizer."

    5-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review (from someone that's not Nusrat): "This is the best liquid blush I have ever used! It doesn't settle into lines or pores and looks so natural! I also love that I can mix two or more colors together to make a custom color for me!" —Emily

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six colors).

    Want more deets on just how good Cloud Paint is? Peep what other BuzzFeeders have to say. Spoiler alert: We def think Cloud Paint is totally worth your money.

    26. DHC Velvet Skin Coat to ensure your makeup stands firm in its beliefs no matter how long you have it on (hopefully not overnight though, cuz you know better, baby). Just put it on before your foundation and watch it WERK.

    5-star reviews: 1,710+

    Promising review: "I could go on and on about this magic face sauce, but instead I’m just gonna lead with the pictures from my random sweat test experiment and tell you what you’re seeing. I think it did a GREAT job of soaking up the oil on my nose and forehead, much better than any pressed or loose mattifying powders I use. The (picture on the right) is after I danced Lindy Hop, Shag, AND Balboa (all fairly rigorous dance lexicons in the swing dance family) for three hours in a hot crowded bar that had to be at least 90 degrees inside. According to my Fakebit, I did 20,000 steps that night so I REALLY put this stuff to the hardest test I could manufacture! It’s lasted for forever, as well, so I definitely think it’s a good deal for the price. It’s small, but you don’t need a lot!" —Queenofthehouse
