    For less than a Grant (that's a $50 bill for all you contactless payment types), you can have one or more of these items for your home, all vetted and approved by more than 100 satisfied customers.

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

    1. A Pioneer Woman Edition slow cooker to satisfy all your extended food warming needs, as well as all of your floral decorating wants.

    Slow cooker

    Promising review: “This ain't your toddler's slow cooker! I call her Big Bertha! She is the biggest and best of the crockpots in the litter. The programming is on par with other cooking devices out there. It's so pretty, it almost looks like a toy. But don't let that fool you. This is a powerhouse. Handles stay cool even after 10 hours of cooking. The digital timers work to perfection, every time. Excellent addition to anyone's kitchen. I know mine certainly needed it! If you want something that handles more than six servings, the Pioneer Woman is your destiny.” —Walmart customer

    Price: $44.99

    2. An air fryer for quick, easy, and oil-less french fries, onion rings, fried cookie dough, fried Oreos, fried Snickers — and maybe fried Skittles? Temps go up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, so be careful with those candies when you take them out.

    Air fryer

    Promising review: “We just got this thing and I was skeptical but it works really well. I cleaned it and followed the instructions to fry a couple of potatoes cut into fries. I placed the cut pieces in a container along with a tablespoon of oil and shook them up to coat the potato pieces. Then fried them according to the instructions and they were great.” —Dandax

    Price: $49.88

    3. A SodaStream Fountain to turn boring ol' tap water into exciting and new sparkling water (or soda) in just 30 seconds. This kit comes with everything you need — the maker, a CO2 cylinder, and a reusable bottle — except water, strangely.

    SodaStream Fountain

    Promising review: “I love it! I gave up drinking regular sodas quite awhile ago and I occasionally miss the carbonated drinks. I do buy sparkling water or mineral water often, but then have to deal with recycling the bottles or cans. I absolutely love this product! I get fresh fizzy water and I know exactly what I am putting into it! Great for a health-conscious person!” —shelly

    Price: $49.88

    4. Over-the-toilet shelving that'll make use of all that underutilized space. Finally, somewhere to put your toilet paper so you're never abandoned again!

    Over-the-toilet shelving

    Promising review: “Excellent value! I love this! My home is small and I needed a bit of extra storage in the guest bath. This is perfect and honestly a great price! Very easy to assemble and install.” —Walmart customer

    Price: $19.84

    5. A coffee grinder to get fresh grounds on-demand for every 12-cup pot of coffee — no awkward waiting in lines at the grocery store necessary.

    The coffee grinder in red

    Promising review: “I was skeptical at first but amazed at how quiet and well this coffee grinder worked! It is smaller than my last grinder but this does what it is supposed to do. It's so efficient!” —RockerMom0619

    Price: $29.99

    6. A tabletop tray that'll hold your assortment of books, papers, letters, parking tickets, etc. This gray wood wash tray should fit several small items or lots of tiny items.

    The wooden tabletop tray with handles

    Promising review: “Perfect for my farmhouse decor in the making! I use it for a small vase, flowers, books... anything cute.” —ATT

    Price: $14.22

    7. A calendar wall clock to help you keep track of what day of the week it is when you're stuck at home for what feels like years. This 20-inch clock has a lightweight plastic frame and is easy to hang anywhere — even on a wall!

    Decorative calendar clock

    Promising review: “Quality glass face cover, elegant script, and clock hands give it a high-end look for a budget price. This clock has three hands: hour, minute, and day of the week. It is large enough to use in an office environment or a large room at home.” —LizB

    Price: $24.92

    8. A breakfast sandwich maker for fast food comfort meals without the wrappers or drive-thru lines. Cook up hot sandwiches like bacon, egg, and cheese in five minutes, and then toss the removable parts into the dishwasher for an even quicker cleanup.

    The small sandwich maker

    Promising review: “Happy, happy, happy. This little appliance is absolutely great! As long as you've done your shopping in advance for ingredients, you can turn out a fab breakfast sandwich in under 10 minutes. We make sandwiches, wrap them in foil, and take them to work. They're pretty much identical to the fast food versions, but with these you can control the exact amount of ingredients. This is well worth what you will invest in this appliance.” —rosesher

    Price: $19.99

    9. A bathroom set to tie the whole space together — with flowers! This17-piece set includes a shower curtain, rug, toothbrush holder, lotion pump, and soap dish, which can also hold a tube of toothpaste (poorly).

    The floral shower curtain

    Promising review: “Immediately transformed the look of our bathroom. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a budget makeover.” —Janice

    Price: $21.97 (available in five colors)

    10. A pair of blackout window curtain panels for a better shot at a decent night's (or day's) sleep. Blackout curtains not only block pesky sunlight, but can help keep heating and cooling costs down and thwart passerby from seeing into your bedroom.

    Blackout curtains

    Promising review: “Great night's sleep thanks to these amazing curtains. I've been searching everywhere for curtains for my bedroom that are actually dark. If you want a good night's sleep, a relaxing atmosphere, or anything you prefer darkness for, you need these. The material is strong, durable, and will definitely last. Easy to put up — no fuss, no muss. Beautiful color variety matches any decor. Not only will I be buying these again, but I will buy them for every room in my house as well as for gifts.” —Walmart customer

    Price: $9.97+ (available in three sizes and six colors)

    11. Peel-and-stick wallpaper that will give your home office, home gym, or home kitchen that distressed wood feel. Each pack comes with 16.5 inches by 20.5 inches of wallpaper. You shouldn't need extra, as it's easy to hang, re-positionable, and comes off without sticky residue.


    Promising review: “I have applied many different self-stick wallpaper. This particular paper applies extremely well. I hung it in my kitchen which has old, dark 1970s paneling. The wallpaper is smooth with no bumps. It's been up for approximately two months with no issues. It's not going anywhere unless I want it to. Really nice, quality product.” —mrblueu

    Price: $29.99

    12. A wax warmer for releasing soothing scents to your indoor space without a flame or soot residue. A 25-watt bulb (included) gives it a gentle light for a touch of ambience or nighttime reading.

    Wax warmer

    Promising review: “Great value for your money. This is my first time buying this and I'm loving it already. The light itself is great, the warmer looks adorable, and it's very safe and easy to use. I can't wait to get a second one.” —Saul

    Price: $15

    13. An area rug to cover the part of the floor where you... you know. Plus, it will liven up a room and make walking around slightly less jarring to your knees.

    Area rug

    Promising review: “Beautiful, subtle color palette. Good pile height. Easily vacuumed. Subtlety distressed, so colors are not overwhelming. I have many of them throughout the house.” —Lis

    Price: $39+ (available in six designs and multiple shapes and sizes)

    14. A pair of chenille throw pillows for a soft, comfy place to lay your head during that daytime nap that you definitely deserve.

    Throw pillow

    Price: $14.88 (available in nine colors)

    15. A pair of plaid throw blankets to get warm and cozy under. Each of these extra-soft, coordinating plush blankets are pretty big, so they cover enough space to snuggle you relatively effectively.

    Throw blanket

    Promising review: “I love these! They come in a pack of two. I like that they are super soft. They are very lightweight but keep you quite warm. They are not very thick either, so they can be used during all seasons, year-round. I love using them while lounging or in bed. I would recommend these plush throw blankets for their style, their warmth, and for their feathery feel.” —Naffy

    Price: $12.87 (available in two color combinations)

    16. A wooden nightstand for everything you might need in the middle of the night — like your glasses, a glass of water, and a life-sized Darth Vader bust. The cubbies allow for plenty of open storage, if you're into that sort of thing.


    Promising review: “I bought two of these nightstands for my bedroom. They are exactly what I wanted! They are inexpensive, easy to construct, and look nice. I was looking for affordable and solid nightstands and this does the job. Parts are labeled and assembly is pretty easy. I also love how much weight the nightstands can support — they're very sturdy.” —Marisa

    Price: $39.00 (available in four finishes)

    17. A floor lamp with five fun colored shades — good for adults, great for kids, and pretty much meh for babies.

    Floor lamp

    Promising review: “Very easy to put together. I was so excited to get it all done to see the end result! It has a weighted base and I'm able to bend each lamp many ways. The lamp is solid, sleek, and enjoyable to switch on and off. Love it!” —Bebbie

    Price: $24.92

    18. A rocker gaming chair for your kids to rock and game in! Suitable for kids 3 years and older (up to 200 pounds), they'll like the gentle rock. You'll like the anti-tipping design, ensuring they won't tumble backwards into your collection of antique glass figurines.

    Four children sitting in the small rocking chairs

    Promising review: “Great for kids! We purchased this for our 11-year-old and it fits him perfectly. It's stable and comfortable. He loved getting it for his birthday.” —Victoria

    Price: $35 (available in five colors)

    19. A poster or picture frame to hang all those diplomas you've been hoarding. This frame is pretty big, so do make sure your photos are high-res before blowing them up and displaying them.

    Picture frame

    Promising review: “Love these frames! I have purchased three now! They are great for the posters my children purchase! These posters are not cheap and the frames complement them perfectly. I will be purchasing more, for sure!” —TatsujinUrutora

    Price: $7.88+ (available in multiple sizes)

    20. A flatware set for times when matching cutlery is called for — as in, all the time. If you already have silverware, consider this a second set for camping or for a new dining room.


    Promising review: “Not heavy, work great, pleasant to look at. The forks are great for jabbing sweet potatoes so they don't explode in the microwave, and for fluffing eggs I add to brownie mix. Very glad I bought this set.” —ConsiderThis

    Price: $9.96+ (available in five designs)

    21. A queen-size weighted blanket full of glass beads to give you the soothing sensation of being held or hugged by a loving parent — who is full of glass beads.

    Price: $44.95-$79.90 (available in two colors)

    22. A shoe rack with ten tiers to organize and position your footwear based on arbitrary ordering systems — such as number of times worn or depth of treads. Plus, it should fit in really any room.

    Shoe rack

    Promising review: “Bought two of these for ladies' shoes and they work great for dress shoes. I use the top racks for some boots. It works great for me and was easy to put together.” —Christie

    Price: $24.94

    23. A small table lamp for your end table, nightstand, or other furniture with at least one flat surface.

    The small white lamp with blue light shade

    Price: $36.00-$45.27 (available in five colors)

    24. A wooden end table to mark the end of your sofa and the beginning of the rest of your living room. It can hold one 50-pound weight — or 50 1-pound weights arranged very carefully.

    End table

    Price: $19.99 (available in four finishes)

    25. An essential oil diffuser with a tank for misting essence throughout your room or house. Despite the calming glow, no heat is used for this — it actually runs on silent ultrasound vibrations, same as atoms (we think)!

    Essential oil diffuser

    Promising review: “This works amazingly well! Easy to use and produces lots of mist and smell! It changes colors or can stop on a certain color. Very relaxing. Very quiet. I would buy this again any day. ” —Kendell

    Price: $14.97

    26. A bookcase to hold all the items that don't fit on your nightstand, end table, or other storage spaces. It has five shelves, three of which are adjustable and two of which are fixed — which is a weird way of saying they don't adjust and not that they were previously broken.


    Promising review: “I am very pleased with this bookcase. My husband easily put it together in less than ten minutes. The bookcase was a bargain and seems sturdy enough. It holds lots of books with room for knickknacks and pictures.” —MoonPanther

    Price: $29.88-$34.88 (available in two finishes)

    27. A night-light (or four) that automatically switch on and off as needed. Use them to illumine your 3 a.m. strolls up and down the hallway.


    Promising review: “These are reliable, perfect night-lights — sturdy and durable. The covers can be removed for a sleek look and plugged facedown for a more movie theater look with light reflected from the floor. Great price for the quality of the product.” —Francisco

    Price: $5.96 (available in white and silver)

    28. A food thermometer to make sure your meat is safe to eat and your candy is, well, candy. (Undercook sugar and you just have sugar.) Stick the tip in your foodstuff and get an accurate reading on the LCD within seven seconds, or less time than it took you to read this.

    Food thermometer

    Promising review: “I just purchased this cooking thermometer after my last one quit on me. It's very small and lightweight and also very easy to use! All you need to do is stick the tip of the probe into what you are cooking. The temperature reading quickly appears. For the price, this thermometer is an excellent buy. I really like using this thermometer to check when my food is safe to eat.” —swoopg

    Price: $9.99

    29. A toy organizer consisting of colorful bins — four small, three medium, and two large — and wood shelves to teach your kid about putting things where they belong. Now if only we could remember where we left our screwdriver so we could assemble this thing....

    Toy organizer

    Promising review: “Sweet storage solution for kids. It's attractive, functional, and takes up little space. It was very easy to put together — took less than 15 minutes to assemble. The canvas material bins are sturdy, attractive, and hold their shape well. I can see crafters who need space for organizing fabric, yarn, tape, scissors, and all the other implements of their trade use these. It's lightweight and easy to move from one room to another. Unlike other toy organizers with baskets, this one is soft.” —Jetboss57

    Price: $25.20+ (available in four color combinations)

    30. An electric kettle to get as much as a liter of water boiling without taking over a stove burner or the microwave — use those for actual food!

    Price: $19.96

    31. A foam floor puzzle mat to make learning the alphabet fun for your kids, or at least pretty convenient. Once your child has mastered his letters and numbers, let them figure out how many square inches the thing covers.

    Alphabet and number puzzle mat for kids

    Promising review: “Big and colorful! Bought as a gift for my great grandchild. He loves the bright colors and that he can pull it apart without getting into trouble!” —darlynn

    Price: $29.95
