    37 Things To Buy Since You're Officially A Grownup

    For days when you ~actually~ want to be responsible for once.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A car trunk organizer to keep your whip nice and orderly. This is also your reminder to actually fill your trunk up with practical things your mother would be proud of you for having like car cleaners, spare air freshener, paper towels, jumper cables, a change of clothes, etc.

    Promising review: "My wife’s car would be a total pigpen without these. The first one was so nice, I got her a second one. They’re solid and tough and make grocery shopping so much nicer because they hold and contain everything so well." —Mitch

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in three colors).

    2. A proper raincoat because admit it: You're still depending on ~just~ an umbrella or a plastic poncho and it's beyond time to step your game up. This raincoat will keep you dry on soggy days but it'll also keep you stylish since it's designed like a regular longline jacket that's perfect for fall.,

    Promising review: "I have to walk my dog twice a day in good and bad weather. I bought this raincoat in the middle of a hot, rainy summer so I didn't want it to make me too warm. It is perfect. It is very lightweight and keeps the rain off but I don't get all sweaty. I bought it in an extra-large size (even though I would normally wear a medium or large) so that I can wear it over bulky sweaters once cooler weather sets in. I think it will work out great. It is larger but doesn't look sloppy. I especially like the stretchy cuffs that keep the rain out of the sleeves. Double fabric on the hood is another nice feature. All in all, it seems well made and I hope to wear it for a long time." —Jeloise

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).

    3. A record player to give your home an old school feel. Haha, it's ~your~ turn to start your Saturday mornings with a cleaning spree and old school cuts so why not do it with this gadget? The record player will also give your parents and grandparents a cool dose of nostalgia whenever they come over.


    Vinyl records are sold separately of course but lucky for you, Amazon has a TON of affordable picks.

    Promising review: "I've had this record player for about four months and I use it every single day. It works every time. It plays loud and clear and doesn't distort when turned all the way up. I also love the design and it's easy to use. My kids have now grown a love for my passion for vinyl and they will be getting their own player soon as well. This was easy to set up, plug in, and play. It's also perfect and easy to move from room to room. Overall, I love my little player." —Neeners503

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in 27 colors) and any vinyl you want from the Amazon CDs and vinyl collection.

    4. A heavy-duty car trash bag so your car can stop resembling the messy room you kept in grade school when you still lived with your parents.


    This car trash can also come with a free pack of 10 liners. Once you're done with the free liners, you can re-up with a fresh pack of liners from the same brand which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! It has a thick protective plastic sewed on the inside so cleaning up spills is super easy. Plus, it came with a roll of plastic garbage bags that fit perfectly inside. It's a heavy-duty car trash bag and very good quality. I was honestly expecting something thin and flimsy. That is not what I got at all. It holds quite a bit of trash. I'm a mother of two and car junk adds up really fast. So glad I bought this because it has come in handy." —BonBon

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in two sizes and two quantity options) and a 40-count pack of liners for $9.99.

    5. Antibacterial sex toy cleaner because owning that fun self-care gadget still comes with the grownup task of cleaning it after every use. This cleaner is alcohol-, glycerin-, and paraben-free.


    By the way, this sex toy cleaner is safe for use on silicone, latex, and rubber.

    Promising review: "I recently bought a rubber toy for the first time and could not get rid of that new rubber smell, no matter how many times I washed it. This toy cleaner is incredible! I love the fresh scent. I was worried about it being overpowering like other people claimed but it's not. It's light and fresh. Also, it does have suds when you spray it on your toy so you know you are getting a good clean. I just gave it a few sprays, rubbed it down a little, and rinsed with warm water. The horrible rubber smell is GONE! Now I can enjoy my new toy." —Kit1989

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    6. Avarelle Acne Absorbing Patches to help shrink pimples as soon as they appear. This is a godsend for anyone who ~thought~ aging out of their teens meant the end of hormonal acne and then, boom, adult acne crashed the party.

    The patches are made of hydrocolloid with a hint of tea tree oil that's meant to minimize redness, decrease the size of the overall acne spot, and shorten the time frame of a blemish.

    Promising review: "I’ve tried so many brands of pimple spots and these are hands-down the best on the market. I’m a performer at Walt Disney World and a clear complexion is required. Last night, I put these on a few acne problems — a small cyst, a whitehead, and a pimple I shouldn’t have picked that has been a bump for about three weeks now. I just woke up and am writing this review in disbelief. THEY'RE FLAT! Gone! All of them! I could cry I’m so happy. The packaging is also ideal because it allows you to conveniently and easily peel the stickers off without stretching them out or folding them back on themselves. Do yourself and your complexion a huge favor! Have these on hand for a stubborn zit when you really need help. Make sure you apply them to completely clean and dry skin." —Caitlyn

    Get them from Amazon for $8.50 (available in a 40-count pack).

    7. Affresh dishwasher tablets that'll remove odor-causing residue so your dishes actually come out clean. These trusty tablets can be tossed in the machine while it's empty or full.

    Because yup, adulting means you get the pleasure of washing the dishes and the machine too!

    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 dishes just not getting clean. Then, I became aware that the water softener was no longer 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. 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 the 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 every month, 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 the dishwasher Affresh tablets from Amazon for $5.20 (available in a six-pack).

    8. A two-sided tea stand to organize your packets now that your party days are dwindling and you're downing more tea and fewer shots. This stand holds 100 tea bags and features 12 slots.

    Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But, as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    9. A lint roller because honestly, it's about time you had one to remove the dog hair and dust from your clothes just before work or some "big day." Lint rollers are definitely one of those things you never have, end up needing, promise yourself you'll get, and then never do. So this is your reminder: Get it now. Get two — one for home and one for work so you stop looking like you've been rolling around in pet hair.


    This lint roller comes with extra stickies! Snagging a lint roller with additional stickies is also the perfect way to make sure you purchase it ONCE and never have to buy it again.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (available with four additional sticky rolls).

    10. Jeffrey Campbell Hurricane Waterproof Boots so when it rains, you can slip into these cuties without having to compromise your fly outfit with those regular rubber clunkers. Yep, this is the grownup way to splash in puddles when it pours.


    New boots, who dis?

    Get them from Nordstrom for $59.95 (available in sizes 6-10; five colors) or Amazon for $59.99+ (available in black; sizes 8-10; Amazon Prime two-day shipping).

    11. A silverware sorter that'll save you more space than you probably ever imagined so you can do way more with your kitchen drawers and feel right proud of yourself for being one boss of an organizer.


    Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —Mialro

    Get it on Amazon for $9.99 (available in three styles and two colors).

    12. A dishwasher magnet so you can take charge of the "Are they clean or are they not?" conversation in your household and prevent dirty dishes from making their way back into your cabinets.


    It's time you settled this thing once and for all! If you have kids, this is also a cute way to get them to be more on top of their chores, especially if they take turns loading the dishwasher during the week.

    Promising review: "I got this a year ago and have used it consistently. It stays in place and does not spin when I open and close the door. It has a strong magnet on it. It has never fallen off the dishwasher, and you can tell from a distance whether the dishes are dirty or clean unless you forget to turn it, of course." —Melanie DiBona

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    13. A hanger stacker that'll turn laundry day into such a quick breeze because be honest, washing clothes is the easy part. Not leaving your clean clothes unsorted on the bed for three days is what you need more support with. Consider this stacker your new support since you'll be able to hang everything up in a snap now that you'll actually be able to find hangers without the task of untangling them.

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time. I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! Seriously, laundry is enough of a pain so to not fight with hangers will be wonderful. It arrived double-boxed and nicely packaged within. Assembly was simple with a total of four screws to attach the vertical pieces to the base and the wrench included. No personal tools were needed. The hanger stand doesn't wiggle and seems sturdy. Hopefully, it stays that way because this has saved me a ton of room and hassle! I'm buying another for child-size hangers." —Kara Adams

    Get it from Amazon for $18.30 (available in six quantity selections).

    14. Headrest hooks that'll ensure your purse and other bags stay put as you (whoops!) speed your way to work and other gotta-be-there-soon places. This is great for helping you locate bags easily while you're at the wheel but also for preventing them from falling over and dumping the contents all over your floor.


    Promising review: "What a great idea! This is the handiest contraption ever. You simply raise your headrest about 1/2" and clip this to the headrest's post. It is firm and secure. My handbag's often heavy and this doesn't make it tilt at all. I gave one to my daughter who uses it in her car, too. She loves it as her car doesn't have much floor space as her center console is wide and she often has passengers. Great value for something so useful!" —Just My Opinion

    Get a set of two on Amazon for $5.95 (available in black and beige).

    15. A bag-organizing insert for anyone who's as tired of digging into their black hole of a purse as I am and needs to literally get their stuff together, immediately. The insert features one large pocket, four small pockets, two zipper pockets, and six mesh pockets that'll ensure that you and I can ~finally~ find what we're looking for without feeling like Mary Poppins., Amazon

    Promising review: "This bag has revolutionized my life! As a professional woman who needs to stay organized, my purse was my downfall. All of my adult life, I have fumbled to find things on the bottom of my handbag no matter what the size. I have even tried carrying a flashlight to find things but I could never find the flashlight. Do I have a pen? It's got to be here somewhere. Paper? Yes, I think I have paper. Well, it's crumpled, but it's paper. Safety pins? Maybe, but it will take an hour to sort through everything else to find them. Maybe if I dump everything out on the counter, it won't take so long... NOW, I am the picture of efficiency. Wallet, pens, paper, cords, phone, keys, gum, safety pins, comb, ID badge, mouthwash, lipstick, cold capsules, and more are all tucked nicely into this travel bag which easily slips in and out of any purse I choose to carry. I purchased the small and medium-size and they fit perfectly inside my purses. The organizer holds a ton of stuff and everything is standing up in full view. Nothing is laying on the bottom of my purse. It has completely changed everything. I am DELIGHTED with this purchase!" —Janis Creason

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-L).

    16. A golden sloth hook so you can store your keys in a designated, easy-to-spot place and skip over that panic-filled morning search just before you have to leave out. Also, this hook makes for ADORABLE decor and is strong enough to hold light bags, scarves, and more.

    Urban Outfitters / Via Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is so cute. I gave it to a friend and she used it to hang a plant. It's bigger than it looks in the picture but is a perfect size I think!" —Kd1988

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $8.

    17. Beautiful fall flats that'll take you from work to fancier events in a flash. This embroidered mule style gives you all the maturity and fanciness of heels — without the foot pain at the end of the day or night.,

    Several reviewers noted that this shoe runs small if you have a wider foot and you'll want to order one size up. It's also worth mentioning that many reviewers noted how communicative and reasonable the seller was when they reached out with sizing questions.

    Promising review: "These are gorgeous! I am a bit of a brand snob on shoes. I loved the design on these so I wanted to give them a try. They are comfy out of the box in my size and fit perfectly and they are gorgeous. Really high-quality embroidery! They are worth every penny and then some! Very happy!" —Cjaby

    Get them from Amazon for $35.98+ (available in 13 styles and sizes 5-12).

    18. A deep pocket sheets set now that you've moved on up from twin-size dorm beds to a frame and mattress big enough to lay in starfish position. This way, you won't have to worry about a corner or two popping up while you're catching ZZZs. These sheets fit mattresses up to 24 inches deep (!!!) and come with four pillowcases.


    Promising review: "Finally, I found a sheet set for my 18-inch mattress that really does fit. I love that I am not struggling to get the last corner on. These sheets are very soft and cool to the touch. I ordered the beige and the color matches what the website shows. Delivery was fast and the price is great. I will be ordering a couple more sets for under what some places charge for one set." —Vic

    Get it from Amazon for $34.45+ (available in 19 colors and sizes ranging from twin to California king).

    19. House slippers because you know you've reached peak adult when you implement the bougie rule that no one — not even you — can enter your house before taking off their shoes.


    Keep cozy and keep the floors clean with these machine-washable slippers that are designed to give your feet the ultimate plush experience with memory-foam insoles and a rubber outer soles.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these slippers! Not only are they super comfortable and super cute, but they are also really durable. I tend to destroy slippers, as I wear them every minute I’m at home and have a bad habit of stepping outside in them, too. The bottoms get all torn up in a fairly short amount of time and I have to throw them away. I’ve had this pair for around two months and they still look brand new which is no small feat for me. They are nearly as thick and sturdy as a regular pair of shoes — more so than some, actually. They’re very supportive and feel wonderful on your feet. Seriously, look no further for a great pair of slippers!" —Jessica K.

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and four colors).

    20. A sunrise alarm clock to help you get acclimated to ~not~ sleeping in too late. The clock has a sunrise stimulation wake-up setting that gradually increases its light similar to a real morning sunrise so you wake up naturally instead of being jolted by a janky alarm sound. It also works reversibly for creating a sunset when you're ready for bed!

    Behold, your own personal sun! This clock comes with eight color options, 20 brightness settings, seven nature sound options, FM radio, and a USB power cable.

    Storytime! My brother and I used to sleep upstairs and my mom's master bedroom was downstairs. She used to wake us up for school by banging on the staircase banister like the cops because she didn't feel like walking up the steps each morning. I'll probably never be a morning person because of it and this clock is sitting in my Amazon cart because, yeah, the struggle is ~still~ real and I need some fake-sun help.

    Promising review: "The light helped me tremendously with waking up and feeling energized. Waking up slowly to natural sounds like waves or birds chirping has made getting up easier. I love how the light begins to increase like the sunrise. It feels much less stressful waking up gradually versus the harsh shrill of my cell phone alarm. My favorite feature is the nightlight. It is a warm orange glow that I enjoy falling asleep to. It is very calming and warm. The setup was quick and easy enough that I could have done it with my eyes closed. The wake-up clock has a sleek modern look and fits right into my bedroom without looking out of place." —Justin Hildreth

    Get it from Amazon for $39.55.

    21. Miracle-Gro indoor plant food spikes that'll turn you into the green thumb-holding plant whisperer. Translation: You'll complete the final phase of actually becoming your mother. 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.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $6.12+ (available in single and bulk quantities).

    22. CeraVe eye cream because, yup, you should have been giving the sensitive area around your eyes extra TLC. The older you get, the more sensitive that area will become so jump on it now! Now? NOW! This eye cream provides extra moisture and is also designed to minimize wrinkles, dullness, and dark circles.

    I use this eye cream regularly and it's also very helpful for dry eczema patches that sometimes pop up on my lids.

    Promising review: "I didn't think this was working for a couple of weeks. A month later, it's the best under eye cream I have ever used. It drastically minimized puffy under eyes and dark circles. I don't have to wear nearly as much makeup under my eyes now." —Ticky128

    Get it from Amazon for $10.77.

    23. Light-dimming stickers that'll prevent the blinking lights on all of your electronics from keeping you awake at night now that you're committed to getting every single drop of sleep you deserve. Also, yes, you can use it to cover up the camera on your laptop if you're like me and think the government is probably, definitely watching your every move.


    FYI: these light-dimming stickers are meant to decrease the stark brightness, not eliminate the light altogether. The package comes with over 100 dimming stickers meant to diminish about 50-80% of the light.

    Promising review: "I wish I'd had these for the last 15 years. If you have electronics in your bedroom and hate the light they put out, then this is what you're looking for. Now all my chargers are nice and dim, my Bluetooth audio device no longer guides ships safely to shore, and I can leave my amplifier on a sleep timer without planes headed into the nearby international airport mistaking it for runway lights. If you have an overly bright indicator light under a smooth surface, this is the solution... I used to have to open up my electronics and draw on the LEDs with a Sharpie or stick black sheets of paper in front of the lights, but this is a much simpler solution." —J.G. Kerns

    Get it from Amazon for $4.29.

    24. Divider sticky notes to help you better organize the thoughts you jot down in your journal, planner, or diary. You could also use them to take notes and bookmark pages in textbooks without damaging the books.


    You get 60 sticky notes in one pack.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these dividers! I use them in my planner and textbooks as reminders on materials and for a breakdown of what bills are due each week at a glance. I will definitely purchase again." —King_savage17

    Get it from Amazon for $4.54.

    25. A box set of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (with the original artwork by Stephen Gammell) in case you were too afraid to finish when you were younger and feel old enough and up to the challenge now.

    These scary stories are super eerie but they're still suitable for kids so you can walk down Memory Lane all by yourself if you dare OR have some storytime fun with the kiddos in your life.

    Promising review: "If you are going to buy these books, this is the place to get them, in this specific set. I had to search a bit to find the original set because the new box set doesn't include the original art. If you're familiar with these books, the original art is breathtaking and about as spooky, eerie, and disturbing as it gets." —Mr. Big

    Get them (used) from Amazon for $18.98. Want more scary stories? Check out the frighteningly awesome list of 23 Books That Actually Freaked People Out So Badly, They Had To Stop Reading.

    26. A satin pillowcase set that'll zhuzh up your bedroom decor by day and help minimize hair breakage and dryness as you sleep on it by night. Two birds. One stone. Or should I say, two pillowcases, one amazing grab? Hehehe.


    Promising review: "These pillowcases are lovely. I'm so glad I made the switch from cheap cotton pillowcases to these satin ones. I got these since I have issues with hair breakage and I have noticed that I have less fall-out and frizziness when it comes to my hair. I also noticed that I don't wake up with a build-up of oil on my face, which was a pleasant surprise. They feel cool to the touch and have the pleasant feel of silk, so it feels luxurious to lay down with these at the end of a long day. I'd highly recommend these, especially for the low cost." —Amber J.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (two in a pack).

    27.

    28. A tote and wristlet set that'll also give you two bags in one since you can reverse the tote any time you want to show off another color. The bag has a straightforward design that makes it a wardrobe investment you can wear to interviews, meetings, on dates, and beyond.


    The bag comes with a wristlet that you can use alone as a mini clutch or as a wallet.

    Promising review: "I bought this bag last year in camel and black, and have waited to see how it held up before reviewing. I’ve had it for 10 months now and have used it daily, and as a carry-on on fights. I’ve loaded it down (overloaded, to be honest) with so many items that it was hard for me to carry — but not for this bag to handle! It is such an impressive bag! I wasn’t sure when I read 'high quality synthetic vegan leather' but let me assure you – it is wonderful. Every part of the bag looks and feels like soft leather. I believe it looks even better the more it’s used! I receive compliments on it all the time and have had no issues with the material or even stitching (and I am not easy on my bags or purses). I’ve used a leather cleaner on it once, with very nice results." —Kathy

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in seven reversible color options).

    29. A moon lamp in case one of the things you'll never outgrow no matter how old you get is a night light. This light resembles an actual factual moon that'll give you the comforting room glow you love in a really cool, grownup way.


    The moonlight changes between two colors (white and yellow) with a touch and runs via a rechargeable battery. 'Nother fun fact: This cool light was made via a 3D printer!

    Promising review: "This was meant to be a birthday present for someone else but I loved it so much, I just kept it for me! It's a perfect night light to keep beside your bed or just to create a cozy atmosphere! The light is very lightweight and easy to charge. I love the fact that you can increase or decrease the intensity of the brightness to your liking. This is the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one! I got the smallest one but I bet the bigger ones are equally beautiful!" —Dhanya

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in sizes 3.5"-7.1").

    30. A three-piece produce-saving container set that'll make your fruits and veggies last much longer in the fridge. No more spending your hard-earned duckets on fruit just for it to go bad before you actually get to enjoy it.

    Buzzfeed / Natalie Brown

    BuzzFeed editor Natalie Brown gave the produce-saving containers a go and was wowed by the results after 10 days of storage!

    "On March 5, I put half of my fresh strawberries in the medium-sized container and left the other half in the clamshell container they came in from the store... 10 days later, the berry I left in the original container was dehydrated and blemished, with wrinkled, crunchy leaves. (I'm not eating the leaves, but still.) But the produce-saver strawb's as fresh as it was on day one! Not that I wouldn't eat the dehydrated one if that was my only option, but given the choice? I'll take a fresh strawberry every day!"

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99. Also, read the full review on these dang-near magical dishes in the These Miracle Plastic Containers Keep Berries Day-One Fresh For Almost 2 Weeks post!

    31. A kitchen knife sharpener so you can refresh your dulling knives and do the most adult thing of adult things to do, which is to save money. Yayyy you!


    Promising review: "...For five and a half dollars, I thought it would be cheaper if I could save her old knives rather than buying new $25 knives for [my mother]. She was so impressed with the results that she pulled out of her retired paring knives from a junk drawer — a filet knife and a huge 12-inch American-made chef's knife that was about 30 years old — and asked me to sharpen them. I was able to bring back a cutting edge on all of them! Maybe not as sharp as new but plenty sharp for use in the kitchen..." —Rick T.

    Get the original black version from Amazon for $5.99 OR the newer model for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    32. Reusable grocery bags because you're too old to not contribute to saving our planet. These strong but lightweight bags are made of 100% nylon that'll hold up to 30 pounds worth of stuff and you can fold them up into tiny space-saving pouches when you're not using them. They're also rip-resistant and come in a ton of colors so you get to tote your groceries (and save the planet with a plastic-free outing) in style.


    These reusable bags are also made of recycled fabric so you get a few extra planet-saving points with this one!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this bag and have now purchased some more for myself and friends. Not only are the designs very cute and trendy, but these also take up zero room in your purse/bag so you can always have it with you and don't have to try and remember to grab your reusable bags from home or car every shopping trip. They're very sturdy. I have been able to carry at least two regular bags worth of groceries in this, including heavy items like a gallon of milk. When you're done, it's very easy to fold back up and pop into its little case." —Britt

    Get them from Amazon for $36 (available three in a pack).

    33. A handmade eyeglasses holder because you've been doing the I-can't-find-my-glasses routine for way too long. Now that you're all growed up and trying to do things a lil' differently, you'll minimize the lost spectacles dilemma by perching them on this polished wooden sniffer.

    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).

    34. Sheer kitty pantyhose to give off witchy vibes and celebrate Halloween anytime this October even if you're not up to going out in full costume to trick-or-treat like the good old days. You can wear them alone or slip into a pair of knee-high boots to let the curious cats peek out from the tops!,

    Promising review: "These are so dang cute! They are great quality and fit perfectly. I have larger thighs and these fit with no problem. I would buy them again and give to my friend who loves cats also." —Teri

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99 (available in one size fits all and four styles).

    35. Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoes that are crazy comfortable for working out and wearing allllllllll the way to the event before switching into your heels at the very last possible minute. Yeah, you're that age and it's completely, totally fine.

    Adidas / Via,

    I own a black pair of these and they're seriously one of the comfiest friggin' sneakers I've ever worn (the other is a pair of New Balance) in my 28 years of life. The "Cloudfoam" insole really does make it feel like your feet are walking on clouds. I thought that feeling might go away after several months of wear but the sneakers remain fluffy and relaxing. The sneakers were so comfortable that I started wearing them to the gym, to work, and even matching them with cute dresses for going-out looks. You'll probably want to order two pairs of these babies so you don't wear out a single pair after you fall in love. I bought my mom a pair as well.

    Get them from Amazon for $41.25+ (available in 5-11 and 33 colors).

    36. Schick Silk Touch-Up Dermaplaning Tools because now you're old enough (and patient enough) to take a blade to your face ~without~ the outcome being the scene of a horror movie. These will take off peach fuzz, help shape brows, and remove dead skin cells with a simple, careful flick of your wrist.


    Promising review: "These little guys work perfectly for dermaplaning! I used one the other night after I washed and applied toner to my face. It’s been a couple of days and my skin still feels baby soft. I didn’t have any sort of reaction or anything to the exfoliation which was nice because I have severe cystic acne. My makeup goes on so smoothly and I finally have that glowing look I’ve been trying to get! I will definitely be buying these again." —Hannah Jean

    Get the set of three from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in a three-pack and nine-pack).

    37. A press-and-go iced tea tumbler because there's something so luxurious about having a glass of iced tea ready-made at any given moment. You may be sitting in an office or a meeting handling business but when you sip iced tea that you made for yourself in minutes, it's DEF going to feel like you're chilling on someone's veranda on a relaxing afternoon.


    The tumbler is designed with two chambers. Just add hot water and a tea bag to the first chamber to steep. The second chamber is for the ice. Just sit the chamber of ice inside of the other and CHEERS. By the way, the majority of reviewers noted that they either bought two of these or ~wished~ they did so, well, you know what to do. The tumbler is dishwasher-safe, odor- and stain-resistant, and DEF something you'll look forward to and remember NOT to forget.

    Promising review: "This was so easy to use and it made a perfect serving of iced tea. So far I've only used fruit-flavored teabags to make a refreshing cup of ice tea. I'm going to purchase another one to keep at work." —BklyninFL

    Get it from Buzzfeed's Goodful line at Macy's for $15.99 using the code "SAVE" (originally $28.99; available in two colors).
