    1. A tiny zodiac jewelry dish to keep up with all your rings and things while repping your astrology sign. A gilded constellation sits on the dish top and when you lift the lid, empowering descriptions of your sign sit on the inside of the dish. This will make a super cute addition to any counter or desk.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This dish is great. It comes in a cute little box for storage too. It's VERY small, which is surprising at first, but definitely spacious enough to get some good use out of. No issues to report. She’s cute." —Stream 7 Rings

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $18.

    2. A cat spoon that'll hang its paws over the side of your cup. Isn't this just PAW-fect?!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this little spoon! It fits perfectly on the edge of my coffee mug. Now, I no longer have to go searching for a spoon to stir my morning coffee! Since it sits on the edge of the cup my fingers don't get sticky from a wet handle. Plus, it's absolutely adorable and makes me think of my own kitty while I'm away at work. This spoon has become an essential part of my morning routine." —Brianna S.

    Get it from Amazon for $1.07.

    3. A dishwasher magnet to keep EVERYONE in the house on the same page about what's going on with the dishes. You know, because dirty plates in the cabinets are a no-go.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Not too much to say here. It will remind you that your wife wants you to empty the dishwasher. It will also remind your wife that you haven't emptied the dishwasher." —Taz

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    4. 3D butterfly decals you'll need to be careful with because you really won't be able to find a surface in your house that doesn't look immensely more beautiful without one of these sticking to it. You might just go butterfly wild and that's perfectly OK because these stickers are mesmerizingly pretty.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Reviewers are putting these things everywhere! Per their lovely pictures, these butterflies will look pretty perched on refrigerators, birthday cakes, walls, plants (real or faux), shelves, office cubicles, Halloween costumes, and more.

    Promising review: "These butterflies are excellent quality and beautifully designed! They have a magnet and glue paper so they can be put on any surface. Also, each butterfly comes with a different design." —Sheyla

    Get them from Amazon for $9.90+ (available in four different styles).

    5. A Himalayan salt lamp set because honestly the only thing that can top having ~one~ of these peaceful things giving your space a warm glow-up is owning TWO.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I was debating on whether to get a salt lamp or not. I have heard many great things from family and I have always like the look of them. After searching, I found this GREAT price on a two-pack. I couldn't believe it. After reading the reviews, I decided to get them and they are perfect! They came well packaged, intact, and in perfect condition. I love that they are on dimmers. We have one in our family room and one in our living room and we leave them on consistently. I love the soft warm glow. If we had room for more in our house, I would order another set!" —Kristen Seyfert

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    6. A handmade eyeglasses holder because why sit your glasses in a regular-degular case or leave them exposed on a table when they could be perched on this polished wooden sniffer?! Several reviewers noted that this was the perfect solution to repeatedly losing their glasses. It will also add character to a room since it looks like a tiny sculpture.

    Amazon

    One reviewer even shared that he uses this stand to keep up with his glasses and also his wedding ring.


    Promising review:
    "I got this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It sits on his nightstand and he uses it regularly. He doesn't lose his glasses as much. I've also noticed that he doesn't fall asleep with them on his face or somewhere in bed since he started using this. I like it because it saves me the aggravation of listening to my husband look for his glasses. It's cute yet functional." —Lady Tauber

    Get it from Amazon for $6.25+ (available in seven sculpture styles).

    7. A champagne stopper so you can pop a bottle anytime you please without worrying about having to drink every drop immediately before the bubbles fizz out. Your friends are DEF going to think this lil' gadget looks oh so sophisticated and they'll NEED to know where you got it from.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed / Via buzzfeed.com

    This will seal up your champagne and keep it fresh in your fridge for days. It also has a pressure pump to make sure the stopper is completely sealed and leak-free.

    Promising review: "I’m guessing most people buy this great product for stopping sparkling wines, but it works just as well for any large-bottle sparkling drink, including apple ciders. And the ability to pump it once sealed means you don’t waste a single bubble getting the bottle back to its full pressure. Great product. Superb customer service." —DavidAtSwans

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    8. A paint-by-numbers kit for adults that has a super random yet beyond adorable image of the alien Stitch from Disney's Lilo & Stitch film. This will make for a cool lil' project for your ~ohana~ but it'll also add some color to a family chill room or children's room.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    9. A soap opera sponge holder that'll be a funny conversation piece and give you a tidy place to store a sponge or steel wool scrubber near your sink. The "tub" part of the holder doubles as a water drain to prevent your scrubbers from holding moisture and getting that yucky mildew smell.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's a very cute and excellent way to keep your scrubby pad dry. Cuter than leaving on the edge of the sink." —Susan Dever

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    10. Cable clips for eliminating all the discord created in your house by the many cords you have. Your stuff is going to look so satisfying after you get everything in perfect order with these simple thingamajigs.

    One reviewer even used these clips to hold up toothbrushes in their bathroom!


    Promising review:
    "I have beautiful new end tables and a sofa table, and wanted to hide the lamp cords that you can see based on the style of the tables. I bought these and am absolutely thrilled with them. They stick on the back of the table and you can direct the cords down the leg of the tables to the outlets. They can be taken off with no harm to the furniture at all, and my tables look much better without those ugly dark chords just hanging down the back." —JK

    Get them from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in three different quantities and an assortment of colors).

    11. A soup-scooping ladle inspired by the Loch Ness Monster because what's cooler than an actual factual item that'll prove to friends you have over that the Loch Ness Monster truly ~does~ exist — at least in your kitchen. You can also use this cutie to scoop more than just soup.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really can’t even begin to say how much I love this thing. I personally don’t use it for hot foods though I’m sure it would stand the test of time. I ordered this to be my staple at work functions. I am a lover of unique things and this totally fits the bill. He serves fruit, banana pudding, and other miscellaneous dessert items. Everyone is jealous as all get out, I can tell. If you’ve come across it, just buy it. You won’t regret it." —Nikki D.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.60.

    12. A spaghetti strainer to turn any pasta-making session into an episode of Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and aaahh if you remember that cartoon, then aaahh I love you!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my husband and I was not disappointed. Once we stopped laughing, I took it off my head and placed it in the dishwasher. We've already used it several times. It's multi-purpose and functional! Ramen!" —Emily D.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.10.

    13. A Wacky Wavy mini tube guy that you'll love if for no other reason than it reminding you of those massive wavy guys in car lots. There's no reason why we adored them; we just did and now here's one to bring that same whimsical joy to your house.

    Amazon reviewers who are parents, teachers, and regular people who love a DIY situation seem to be raving about this product. They've used this chalkboard paper to create calendars, to-do lists, home menus in the kitchen, labels for household items, and so much more.

    Promising review: "I love this stuff! It's so versatile. It goes on and off easily. Sometimes I even removed and restuck a couple of times to get it right and it worked great every time. The possibilities for where and how you use it are really endless. There are so many things you could do. I also purchased the Kassa chalk markers with this and they work perfectly and come off cleanly. In the end, I used my contact paper to make a calendar and planner for my fridge and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out." —Kelly

I like the battery-operated lights without a plug-in cord since there's no need for electricity usage. It's great for a nightlight and gives a small ambiance of festivity and joy. I'll be getting another one, for other rooms!" —Christy Continued

    Amazon

    To see the sparkles, just mix the glitter into the paint, paint the wall, let it dry, and then BUFF the paint to make the glitter really pop. Got it? Mix, paint, then buff!

    Promising review: "I was very leery about using this but loved the idea for adding this to my daughter's room. I wish I would have used this on all four walls instead of just the accent wall. It is beautiful! I ended up splitting it and adding some to her ceiling paint too. LOL, and it looks fabulous." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 26 colors).

    Urban Outfitters

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this to put my brushes and combs in and it’s gorgeous. It is a great addition to my bathroom and a great place to store my brushes and combs. I ordered the gold one and the pictures don’t do it justice. I really like the gems; they're super pretty. It gives the room an elegant touch. The holder is a good size that allows you to fit a few brushes and combs in it. It's very sturdy and durable. My daughter has already snuck off with it a few times and so far, surprisingly no harm has been done. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase." —Kristine

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVED the strong quality of this item. I loved it so much that I ordered a second set to organize my jewelry and both sets fit perfectly in my drawer. It looks absolutely organized. I can see each piece immediately and access them faster as opposed to before when I had to go over each of them all piled up together. Sometimes, I did not even want to waste my time figuring out which piece of jewelry was where. I even preferred not wearing the best ones for my outfit since I was rushing out the door. Although these organizers are labeled to be for makeup, they ended up being jewelry organizers for me and I am extremely happy that they worked for this interest." —Lily
