    5. A super pretty rainbow prism suncatcher so you can instantly bask in tiny little rainbows that'll really perk your mood up!

    6. A ChomChom pet hair roller if your pet sheds a a lot, a lot. And you're tired of cleaning up after it. And if guests are coming over in an hour? Just roll, roll, roll, and watch the fur lift away!

    11. An all-natural, vegan, non-toxic, and cruelty-free Puracy stain remover for getting rid of evidence of your wine spills, pet messes, dirt, and so on. It's like a stain-vanishing potion! You'll be surprised how easy it is to use.

    13. A pumice stone to make the inside of your toilet look totally spotless and pretty because, ya know, pretty toilets are a thing. And hopefully the friends you have coming over in an hour will keep it that way!

    14. A power scrubber brush you attach to an actual drill (um, wow) to do all the backbreaking work for you. You'll be done before you've even finished saying "power scrubber brush."

    19. A pack of (reusable) watermark remover cloths so your guests won't get wind of those unsightly water and heat stains from the five cups of coffee you had just that morning.

    20. A storage box for all those pesky cables, cords, and loose wires that make your room look ugly. This doubles as a charging station for your devices too (and of course, looks nice in your room)!

    21. And an ultra thin electrical cover connected to a power strip that lets you charge six devices at a time! No more bulky plugs and tangling wires your friends might trip over. And they won't see all the scratches from dragging furniture either because there won't be any when you have this!

    24. A rolling utility cart for a sleek touch to your decor and also more space anywhere you need it in your home. Use it in the dining room as a bar cart or in the bedroom so your books and skincare aren't cluttered everywhere.

    25. An add-on storage shelf you'll probably cry over because you don't need any tools to install it. (Just expand it to the size you need and tighten the screws with your hand!) That empty space above your closet finally becomes useful, and your floor finally becomes clear of towels, shirts, and bags so it'll look fresh and ready for new decor once again.

    29. A microfiber duster that actually traps all the dust that arises when you're cleaning so it won't float around the air and make you sneeze — and then feel like you haven't even cleaned at all because there's so much dust. When you're done, just remove the cloth and throw it in the wash!

    30. A frankincense and myrrh all-purpose cleaner you'll reach for to clean everything from floors and cabinets to windows, sinks, cars, and even dirty mop heads. You can also use it to boost your laundry detergent or as a spot cleaner for stains. This one's not kidding around!
