    1. A gel-enhanced seat cushion to give your tush the TLC it deserves. It's perfect for people who spend a lot of time sitting down (whether it's for driving or in an office chair) because it's specifically designed to support your tailbone so you don't get that sharp pain that comes with all those hours on your bum.

    The gray cushion in an office chair. It has a slightly rectangular shape with rounded edges and an empty space near the tailbone to relieve pressure

    The cushion is also meant to relieve butt and lower back pain.

    Five-star reviews: 5,700+

    Promising review: "I love this cushion so much I just bought a second one. I’m a short lady and this boosts me about two inches in the driver's seat in my car. I used it driving two thousand miles from Phoenix, Ariz. to Grand Rapids, Mich. and back this year and it was wonderful. No back pain, fatigue, or sciatica while using it. I love that it has the cut out for the tail bone too since mine slightly protrudes. I just bought another one to use in the house too. I'm leaving one in the car. Holds up well and retains its shape nicely and I love that it has a removable washable cover too." —Srossrn

    2. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes that'll turn you into the green thumb–holding plant whisperer. Just pop these sticks into the soil of your hungry plants and watch them flourish!


    The spikes will feed each plant for up to two months.

    Five-star reviews: 1,240+

    Promising review: "I have several houseplants that had stopped flowering so I put a few of these spikes in the pot. There are directions on the back of package for quantity and approximately a month after using these spikes, my peace lily had three flowers on it! My African violets plants all got several blooms on them! This worked wonders for my plants that don't flower also. I noticed that my ivy and cactus plants started growing faster and they became more green and healthy-looking. I am very happy with this product and I will buy it again." —Elizabeth

    3. AND! Sticky stake insect traps to catch every single gnat and fruit fly aiming to make a meal out of your beloved houseplants.

    A plant with the sticky stuck in its soil and with lots of gnats caught on the sticky

    Five-star reviews: 1,320+

    Promising review: "When I started seeing annoying flying guys around my houseplants, I assumed they were fungus gnats. I was wrong and these nasty things flourished and spread from plant to plant. I've had a lot of success with Safer antifungal sprays so I thought I'd give their traps a try. The package includes plastic stakes with clips that hold the trap and seven traps. DO NOT remove the white paper covering the sticky bits before you fix the trap to the stake unless you want to get the glue on every appendage. I recommend sticking the stake in the dirt first, tucking in the trap with the paper still on, and then removing the paper. Put the trap as close to the soil as possible. You'll know how great these work in a couple of hours when you take a look and see a dozen of those little buggers living out their last moments on yellow glue. In another week this insect problem will be over but I'm keeping these in stock for maintenance." —Amanda Sleds

    Get it from Amazon for $5.04.

    4. Garbage disposal packets that'll finally, finally rid you of that ever-present yet somehow ever-elusive smell emanating from your sink.,

    BTW, it's lemon-scented and the packets are biodegradable so they won't screw up the environment once they go down your drain and out into the sewage.

    Five-star reviews: 1,350+

    Promising review: "These are amazing! I was skeptical at first but I followed the directions (which are super easy) and was grossed out and satisfied at the same time to see the gunk that was removed. You put the entire packet down your disposal (I read that twice too) and magic happens in under two minutes! That is what I call powerful and successful cleaning! The scent is super clean and light with a hint of lemon. These will definitely be a cleaning staple for me." —KPITT

    Get them from Amazon for $7.10+ (available in multiple quantities).

    5. The Luigi's Mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch just for the gamer who knows Luigi's always been way too underrated. Finally, he's getting HIS shine and you're gonna have so much fun.

    Check out what BuzzFeed editor Heather Braga has to say about he time with this game:

    "This game is SO fun. You can also team up with a friend and play together as Luigi and Gooigi. This has been one of my favorite games this year — it's lighthearted, a little spooky, and overall a good time."

    Get it from Amazon for $58.74+ (available in a digital and physical form; free shipping if you nab the physical game) OR Target for $59.99 (just the physical; free shipping; available with a two-year game protection program for an additional $8).

    6. Jetted tub cleaner that'll help pull out all of the gunk hiding in your bathtub or Jacuzzi jets. Warning: You'll probably be beyond disgusted after you use this and see what crawls outta those jets. Prepare your eyeballs.


    Five-star reviews: 3,230+

    It's meant to clean your tub in just 15 minutes. Just run the bath, pour the cleaner in, feast your eyes upon the gunk that slimes its way out, drain your bath, and then clean off all the icky-ness left behind. You can do this! I believe in you! 👍🏿

    Promising review: "I want my Mommy!!! Wahhhh! So gross! Caused dry heaves and I don't even have a weak stomach. I had just cleaned my jets two weeks prior and they were running clean with no 'black monsters' shooting out. I just thought they were clean. Oh no. I was wrong. Ran once with Oh Yuk and this greasy green and brown and black goo kept coming out. Then I ran a tub of pure water and all these 1" by 1" flakes of biofilm were floating around which I've never seen. So I'm assuming the Oh Yuk loosened this stuff up from the tubes. I noticed that if I cut the jets on and off several times it's almost like the pressure just made more and more shoot out. I would recommend turning them on and off several times as well as running them for 15 minutes. Ran the Oh Yuk again (more goo) followed by another one with pure water. It now runs clean!!! I highly recommend watching the suds...mine came dangerously close to overflowing the tub. I also took a full bucket of water and poured over the filter several times and all this crap came out. I will never ever use a public hot tub again. And I really don't want my jetted tub. Next time it'll be a soaker tub! I'm here to order a gallon of this stuff. I recommend this to any jetted tub owners!" —KW

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    7. A bodycon dress made jussst for those of us who'll always appreciate a super comfortable, one-and-done piece to wear as our OOTD.,

    Five-star reviews: 1,080+

    Promising review: "I LOVE this dress! I will be getting it in other colors. The material is really thick and stretchy. I bought it in black and it is NOT see-through whatsoever. After reading the reviews, I ordered an XL but the next one I order will be a large size. It fits just fine but was a little loose in the back. For reference, I am 5'2", 160 pounds, and a 38D. I typically wear a medium or large in clothing. I can pull this dress down and it goes to my knees if I wear it to the office, or I can pull it up to show off the ruching for a night out. It's very versatile. 10/10. I would MOST DEFINITELY recommend! It's a very versatile piece and a must-have!" —Lacey Thornhill
    Get it from Amazon for $28.58+ (available in sizes S-XL and nine colors).

    8. Plant-based bug repellent that smells so good, you may think it won't actually do its ~real~ job of blocking the bugs — but per the reviews? This stuff will be equal parts effective and nose-friendly.

    a reviewer's hand holding the bug spray bottle

    Five-star reviews: 3,620+

    Promising review: "This stuff works fantastic. It lasts for hours and no chemical smell. It has a definite lemon smell but not like a furniture polish lemon smell. I had no bites and I was out for about three hours. Bugs didn't bug me at all and it has no deet. You would need to reapply if you're getting in and out of the water so just keep that in mind. Mosquitos LOVE me so if it works on me, then it should work on anyone." —Gina Central

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    9. A cleanser and polishing powder to completely erase the evidence of the tries, fails, and victories of your cooking exploits from all of your pots and pans.

    The cleanser is non-abrasive, bleach-free, and effective on most surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, and outdoors.

    Five-star reviews: 1,840+

    Promising review: "As you can see in the photo, it’s safe to say this stuff works. I left it on for a little while, and when I came back, this was the result of less than two minutes of scrubbing!" —Donette

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in two sizes).

    Check out "You Can Use This All-Purpose Cleanser To Basically Clean Your Entire House" for more info!

    10. A wireless no-bounce bra that — per the rave reviews — will actually keep the most bountiful, bouncy boobs in place when you do even your most bounce-inducing workouts. Jumping jacks and bear crawls, here you come — and there those ta-tas will stay!,

    Five-star reviews: 5,300+

    Promising review: "My search for a sports bra is finally over!! No longer do I have to stuff myself into three sports bras, crushing my bosom and my soul, to be able to get a good workout. My 36G bust is fully supported in this bra. It's comfortable, easy to put on, and cute! I especially like the panel that prevents too much cleavage, which has always been something I don't want to show. Now, I can go to the gym without feeling self-conscious. I'll definitely be purchasing more." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $23.49+ (available in sizes 34C-50J and seven colors).

    11. Green Gobbler drain clog dissolver to get all the gunk out of the pipes and drains for your sink, toilet, and bathtub.

    A reviewer's hand holds the bottle of clog dissolved. It has two openings at the top of ti closed with twist-off caps

    Five-star reviews: 6,720+

    Check out what BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly has to say about how this thing works for her bathroom:

    "My bathroom sink tends to stop up far too easily and this does a drastically better job of clearing the gunk than Drano or Liquid Plumr. I also love that it's non-corrosive (I live in a pre-war apartment building with old pipes) and odorless (no one loves feeling like a bug being fumigated in their own home)!"

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97.

    12. Lightweight joggers – with pockets, baby! — that'll be a cool, comfy pick for snuggling, kicking your feet up while you catch some TV, or running errands.

    A reviewer taking a mirror selfie wearing a black pair of the pants. They cup above the waist right under the belly button and have cuffs at the ankles.

    Promising review: "These joggers will change your life. They are SO cute and comfortable. I honestly look forward to wearing them to bed. I love them so much and plan to buy several more pairs!" –Kassie H.

    Get them from Amazon for $27.23+ (available in 24 colors and sizes XS-5XL).

    13. An all-purpose car cleaner to keep your vehicle's interior looking less icky and more like new.

    It'll clean upholstery, fabric, canvas, leather, vinyl, plastic, rubber, metal, wood, and more!

    Five-star reviews: 2,700+

    Promising review: "I have used every product that you can find on the shelves of your local store. When I sprayed the cleaner on the light beige interior of a 25+-year-old car, the interior turned to its original color. After years of detailing, I had assumed at this point, the color was set and that's it, not with this stuff. While cleaning it I literally said out loud, 'No way, no way,' because I was in disbelief at how amazing it worked, and the results are in the compliments I receive from friends." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    14. A portable outdoor rocking chair so you'll get as much sunlight and fresh air as you need — with the comforts of a cupholder, a sturdy frame, and a steady rock.,

    Promising review: "The chair is extremely comfortable — more than any other portable chair I've ever sat in! I'm a big dude — around the 250-pound weight limit. I never felt as though I was too heavy nor that it couldn't support me during normal movement/rocking. It's easy to fold, very portable, and storable. Great product!" —Larry Wade

    Get it from Amazon for $60 (free shipping; available in two colors).

    15. An upholstered platform bed frame and headboard to give your favorite place in the house a sophisticated touch — and your back a place to rest comfortably.

    A made-bed resting on an upholstered platform with a matching rounded and tufted headboard

    Promising review: "This bed is beautiful and very sturdy. I liked that it had three different height options for the headboard depending on the height needed for the mattress. I also love that the base of the bed is upholstered and wraps around the entire base." —Sarah

    Get it from Wayfair for $220.42 (originally $1014.03; available in five sizes and seven colors).

    16. A dishwasher cleaner and disinfectant that'll snatch up all the rust, grease, and other nasty gunk that likes to camp out in there. This way, your machine will actually clean your dishes properly the first time and you won't have to replace the whole thing.

    It also kills Salmonella and E.coli!

    Five-star reviews: 2,330+

    Promising review: "After using this product, I am happy to report that my $5 investment saved me over $500. I was ready to replace my dishwasher, due to super cloudy glasses, residue, and just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener no longer was doing its job, so I had the rental company replace it. Dishwasher performance improved somewhat. I decided to do two more loads before deciding to purchase a new one. Then I saw a product test review for Affresh in Good Housekeeping magazine. I was ordering some stuff from Amazon anyway, so I added that to my order. When it came, I tossed one of the tablets into the bottom of the full machine, per instructions, and ran the regular cycle. I did not expect the results I got! My glassware that I thought was permanently etched and ruined came out like new. Same with cutlery. The difference is unbelievable. I will use this faithfully on a monthly basis, as recommended. I can even put it on my subscribe and save order, so I will get a new pack every six months. I am amazed!" —Sheila

    Get a pack of six tablets from Amazon for $5.99.

    17. A glass nail file designed to help you shape your nails and leave their ends sealed so the edges are smooth and don't peel.,

    Five-star reviews: 2,210

    Promising review: "The first time I got a glass nail file, I didn't know the difference between the painted grit and actual etching. HUGE DIFFERENCE! My first cheapy file lasted a month. These ones (I bought three) have lasted MONTHS and are still like new. That's how you can tell these are made of genuine etched glass. They are omnidirectional and leave your nail tips feeling smooth. I keep one in both bathrooms as well as one in my purse, because if I have a nail file near me then I won't bite my nails!! :)" —NaySAO

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in seven colors).

    18. A dog bed with comfort that'll rival even your hooman one thanks to its orthopedic foam base meant to support dogs' joints and pressure points — AND to specifically support dogs that experience arthritic pain.

    Wayfair, Crystal / Wayfair

    This will be a sweet option for older dogs that need more physical support. The bed would also be great for any pet parents out there who want to get their fur babies off of their sofa. The three bolster points will perfectly mimic the couch arms they're so used to leaning on so this could help them transition even more. Your pooch just might thank you with lots of wet kisses (or by giving you a break from pup parent duty by retiring to their bed for more naps).

    Five-star reviews: 3,650+

    Promising review: "My lady Hippiichipii loves her bed! I bought this XL bed because my large American bulldog pitbull mix is a senior lady now. She is 10 years old and weighs 75 pounds. She had just undergone ear surgery due to a horrible infection and so I thought she would appreciate a nice new bed. This bed is firm enough to support her old joints. Not to say that she is having any issue with her hips or anything because even though she is 10, she sure can spring around. I know she loves her new bed because she is sleeping without any discomfort. She barely has to adjust when she is resting on it for a long period of time and that is awesome. Wayfair always has great deals on dog beds and I will be purchasing her next one from here." —Mina

    Get it from Wayfair for $40.40+ (originally $66.34+; available in five colors and sizes small to jumbo plus).

    19. Nail growth and strengthening cream made with ingredients like hydrogenated jojoba oil and calcium to nourish and thicken your nails while soothing your cuticles.

    Five-star reviews: 1,900+

    Promising review: "Amazing! My nails have been transformed. They have NEVER been this healthy-looking and strong. This is a must-have product. You will see results in about a month of daily application." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94.

    20. A scissor-skills activity kit to help younger kids practice using scissors in a safe, fun way. The set will come with a book of 20 pre-printed activity pages and a pair of bladeless plastic scissors that are meant to only cut paper. This'll totally make the ~cut~ for anyone home with young children who are still learning the basics.


    The cut-outs start off super easy and increase in difficulty as a kid gets more comfortable and progresses through the book.

    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "I wanted to get some kid-friendly scissors for my 4-year-old to practice with and this set was perfect! I have two boys and I really didn’t want them (4 and 2) to have an actual blade. I really like the variety of the cuts on the illustrations too." —Savannah Dison

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    21. Mold and mildew remover gel that'll transform what you thought were impossible-to-clean nooks and crannies in your home into spots clear of buildup and germs.

    Just apply it, let it sit for six to eight hours, and then scrub away. It's meant to work on tiles, grout, sealants, tubs, sinks, showers, and more. Heads up: For more longstanding mildew buildup, several reviewers noted they had to do more than one treatment for the area but that they did still get results.

    Five-star reviews: 2,280+

    Promising review: "Wow! I would give this 10 stars if I could. We've had issues for a few years with the caulking behind the handle of our kitchen faucet turning black from mildew. We've scrubbed with what seems like a million different products, with no luck. We were actually just talking about ripping out the caulking and doing a total replacement. But, my husband saw this online the other day and decided to order it. Almost immediately when he applied it, you could see it was starting to work. We left it on overnight and the black is COMPLETELY GONE! It's incredible. It's 1,000% worth the (small) investment." —Nicole D.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    22. Beats wireless earphones to loop over your ears so you can take calls, jam to your music, listen to a podcast or whatever else you like to consume, and of course, tune everything else out around you when you don't feel like being bothered with at that moment 💁🏿‍♀️.

    They provide up to nine hours of listening time and 24 hours with a traveling case, are sweat-resistant, have volume and track control on both earpieces, and are compatible with iOS and Android devices.

    Five-star reviews: 2,450+

    Check out what BuzzFeed editor, Emma McNaw, has to say about hers:

    "I am not a tech-savvy person by any means. I needed help the other day just to make sense of a new electric can opener. Needless to say, I had still been using cheap drugstore headphones up until recently (I lost my included Apple headphones many moons ago). I decided I needed wireless headphones for multiple reasons: a) regular headphones are annoying to use at the gym, especially while running, and b) I was starting to waste a lot of money by replacing cheap headphones over and over again, which inevitably break within four months. Not to mention, me detangling wires was starting to take years off my life. These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones. I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer (again, I can't even handle can openers), but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances — I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music. They can hold a charge for a pretty long time, as long as you always store them in their charging case. I usually use them for a full workday without needing to recharge them...They're definitely a splurge, but IMO, they're worth it!"

    Get them from Amazon for $199.95 (originally $249.95; available in eight colors and an AppleCare bundle; free shipping).

    23. Laundry stain remover that reviewers swear will work literal magic on your (or your kids') dirtiest, nastiest clothes.

    Five-star reviews: 1,560+

    Promising review: "I'm always skeptical of these kinds of products but I went ahead and decided to give this stain remover a chance because I have clothes that have small grease spots from cooking that I never notice until after I've already washed them. I used this on those items (which have already gone through the dryer several times) as well as my trusty old 'period panties' that hide in the back of my drawer. I sprayed it on the stains pretty generously, let it sit for a few hours, and then washed everything as I usually do. When I took everything out of the dryer, the stains were gone! I have never seen such results from anything I've used before, including all of the big-name stain removers that claim to be the best. The next test is to try it out on my dishrags that I've been using for the last few months that all have stains I can't seem to wash out. This product will remain a staple in my laundry room forever!" —Kerry

    Get it from Amazon for $17.88.

    24. Pan scrapers so you can clean up after cooking with way less muscle work. The scrapers have four differently-shaped edges so you can remove the gunk from any size pan.


    Five-star reviews: 2,930+

    Promising review: "These are the best little scrapers! I've messed up my iron skillets so many times before buying these! They're super easy to use, not pricey, and they do the job! It was even easy on my hands since it took me maybe two minutes to scrape everything, rinse, and dry. I had to scrape shepherd's pie (meat, cheese, gravy, and potatoes left overnight) off the pan. And if you've ever left gravy in something overnight, then you know how hard that can be to get off. But not with these bad boys!! Save yourself some time and save your pans! Your skillets will thank you!" —Tyler

    Get them from Amazon for $6.60 (available in a two-pack).

    25. Activated charcoal toothpaste that so many reviewers swear will help make your teeth several shades lighter. It'll also treat bad breath.,

    PSA: Ya' gotta be careful with the charcoal peeps! Doctors have confirmed that activated charcoal can whiten your teeth (yay!) but excessive usage can weaken the enamel of your teeth (boooo!). I recommend you use this toothpaste to whiten your teeth and keep the tube around for when you need it occasionally. Everything in moderation, peeps! Ah yes, and you should also understand that activated charcoal toothpaste is good for surface-level stains made by coffee, wine, dark foods, etc... For deeper stains beneath the surface of your teeth, your best bet is the dentist's office. Last thing: This toothpaste is vegan, and it's fluoride-, peroxide-, and gluten-free!

    Five-star reviews: 7,680+

    Promising review: "I developed some coffee stains on my two front teeth earlier this summer. I could not get them off with regular brushing and they were making me very self-conscious. I found this product and, after less than a week, the stains are completely gone. Now, I’m going to work on the yellowing of my bottom teeth. Great product!" —Laurapgh
