    1. A wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil to hide dings and scratches and add some healthy natural luster to basically anything in your home that's made of wood.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    2. An Amazon Fire Stick that makes it so easy to access all of your subscription services in one place. Love anything that somehow makes watching TV even easier.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have owned every version of Fire TV devices. This is easily the best that Amazon has made! I'm very surprised by the speed of the device. It flies through the Fire OS menu, and the addition of the TV controls make this a game-changing device." —Jonezzz

    Get it from Amazon or $49.99.

    3. Mighty Patches because fighting breakouts can be as easy as popping on a sticker that sucks up all that gunk overnight. I will gladly trade jetpacks for a future where stickers can solve all my problems.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have issues with acne (especially those nasty whiteheads) but can't afford all the fancy step by step treatments out there, you at least need to buy these. This truly worked at minimizing my pimples, sucking up the wound and keeping big pimples from getting worse. It really does draw up the pus to the patch! I leave one on overnight and just slowly peel off and then wipe away any remaining pus. I even let my mom who was visiting try it on her pimple and she loved them, so I had to order more!" —Megan Meehan

    4. A John Frieda hot air brush that has allowed a multitude of people to skip the blowout bar forever and give themselves a killer style in the comfort of their own home.

    Rachel Dunkel / Via BuzzFeed

    I'd heard a TON of great things about the hot air brush but admittedly didn't fully believe it until I got one for myself. I was thrilled to have a dramatically short bob until I remembered just how hard they are to style. I'm nearly useless with a round brush and hairdryer. The hot air brush combines two unwieldy tools into one light, easy-to-manage one that's simple to use and greatly cuts down on my morning styling time. I recommend letting your hair air dry most of the way before finishing with this. Even a pass over dry hair helps get my bedhead into shape. Amazing. I have short hair and the 1" version is perfect.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

    5. A jewelry cleaning pen, because this little tool is keeping SO MANY pieces of priceless jewelry shinier than ever and boy oh boy are there the review photos to prove it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Don't get me wrong — my wedding ring was gorgeous before. It did sparkle and still made me smile every day. However...after using this Diamond Dazzle Stik...*oh my goodness*! After one use my ring is absolutely breathtaking! I knew my ring got dirty now and then, simply from sweating and being outside in the elements. However, I never realized just how much dinge and schmutz marred my diamond until I cleaned it. It literally took my breath away with its fiery, dazzling brilliance!" —liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.68.

    6. Glossier's Boy Brow to thicken and fluff your brows to perfection with just a swipe. If you've ever seen someone's brows and thought "I wonder how they get them so naturally flawless," there's a 99% chance the answer is Boy Brow.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I didn't know I could love my brows this much. With two swipes, Boy Brow makes magic. It puffs them up and fills them out in the best way. The brown shade matched perfectly. This will be my forever product, and my top Glossier recommendation." —madeline

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades as well as clear).

    7. A Nintendo Switch — arguably the most sought-after product of the year — so you can play your favorite games both docked on a TV screen or on the go.

    nintendo switch console
    Target

    Promising review: "The Switch is an amazing console. It feels great in the hands, not too heavy or unbalanced. I love the portability and changeability of the system, and it doesn't seem to take away from the build quality or the screen resolution. Funnily enough, I enjoy playing games on the console over the TV. The JoyCons, the two controllers that slide off the unit for multiplayer and some games that use lots of motion, are also a great quality." —errantMisfit

    Get it from Target for $299.99.

    8. A bottle of Garnier micellar water that is both a facial cleaner *and* makeup remover! Its gentle formula, effectiveness on most skin types, and low price point have earned it a lot of love. That's a lot of happy, streak-free eyeballs (including my own)!

    instagram.com

    This micellar water works for all skin types and is paraben-, fragrance-, sulfate-, and silicone-free.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have found this product years ago! I have always struggled with removing my eye makeup completely, but I have been blown away by this product. I just shake it up and put a little bit on a cotton round. A gentle wipe on my eyes is all it needs to completely remove my makeup — no more morning raccoon eyes. I take another cotton round and gently rub the rest of my face with it to remove makeup before using my face-cleansing brush. The product does not irritate my eyes or face at all. It does not feel greasy or leave a film. I feel so clean after using it, and it is very gentle. My skin has also been much clearer since I started using this — now my face-cleansing brush is able to clean my skin and not work so hard at my makeup!" —hollyb28

    Get it from Amazon for $6.78.

    9. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets so you don't have to toss your tumblers every time you leave them in the car for a few days...or a few weeks...or a month.

    on the left labeled "before" the inside of a reviewer's stained tumbler, in the middle "during" the soapy tumbler, on the right "after" the tumbler shiny and clean
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn't put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING." —Amazon Customer

    Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $8.

    10. InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum that uses hyaluronic acid and plant stem cells to reduce sun spots, discoloration, redness, hyper-pigmentation, and dark spots without drying you out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried multiple vitamin C serums, but this one is by far my favorite. The smell is lovely and it goes on very light. My skin has been looking brighter and clearer since using this.I also love that the bottle is protected from light. I purchased another serum product where you could tell the product went bad as the smell changed. I researched later and learned that proper storage for vitamin C serum must be in bottles that block out the light, as that retains all the qualities of the minerals and vitamins in the product. I am purchasing this again for the second time now. Highly recommend!" —Serena

    Get it from Amazon for $17.96.

    11. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer — I know, I know, "Why do I need this tool that literally does the job of a knife?" It perfectly halves, de-pits, and slices avocados easily and beautifully, and that sounds pretty freaking good to me.

    the plastic tool with a blunt knife on one end, a depitter in the middle and a round slicer on the other end
    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you even looked through these reviews to decide if you truly needed an avocado slicer, the answer is clear — your avocado obsessions clearly requires this. I will admit, you can do everything this tool does without it. You may lose a minimal amount of avocado by using a knife instead to remove the seed and cut it open, but this product is mainly for convenience sake. I will say however the convenience is uncanny. Simple to use, it cuts everything just how you want it, and is worth the small investment for the future of my avocado enjoyment. If you inhale avocados at an alarming rate then the convenience is well worth the investment." —Friendly redwood

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. A pet hair vacuum that over 7,000 five-star Amazon reviewers confirm will make much quicker work of cleaning up fuzz of all kinds.

    amazon.com

    The hand vac has a 16-foot power cord and comes with two nozzles for cleaning upholstery, carpeting, and the inside of your car.

    Promising review: "Holy crap! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! A picture is worth a thousand words — check mine out! The 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left behind hair! The 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD!" —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    13. Allbirds wool runners so you can keep your feet super comfortable while letting everyone know that you listen to SO many podcasts.

    Allbirds

    I know these have been hyped for a long time, but like....I really, really, really love my Allbirds. I've had them going on three years, have put a TON of miles on them, and they're somehow showing no signs of aging. They stay shockingly clean, are super light, and are of course mega comfortable, which is what skyrocketed them to fame in the first place. I used to love them especially for days when I was traveling, but I also love them for bopping around the neighborhood and even wearing around the house when my feet want some support.

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 for women's sizes (available in sizes 5–11 and 11 colors) and $95 for men's sizes (available in sizes 8–14 and 10 colors).

    These babies won best casual sneakers in the mid-priced category on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    14. A Tub Shroom to stop drain clogs before they even begin. You can't really stop yourself from shedding, but you can make cleaning up a heck of a lot easier and cheaper.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I shed so much hair and it has always been an issue when it comes to showering! I used to try to catch the hairs before it went to the drain in which I would later have to clean once clogged, and now I encourage and move them towards the drain and my TubShroom! It truly is amazing and the silicone material allows it to not rust like the old metal tub sink screens. It makes cleaning so much easier, and I am amazed every time. It even caught my dog's hair and he has short, thin hairs!!! Highly highly recommend this for every home." —S.K.M.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    15. Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning that's — appropriately — delicious on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Luckily Amazon dot com has this, just in case you're not lucky enough to live near a TJ's.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My friends were right. This stuff is amazing. I have been putting it on all types of food and have yet to be disappointed. While it is a lot cheaper if I were to get it from Trader Joe's, the fact is that I don't live near one so I don't mind paying the extra price here for it." —PAN66

    Get it from Amazon for $7.70.

    16. Glossier Solution featuring AHA, BHA, and PHA acids to fight breakouts. The chemical exfoliator is effective for all skin types and works to reduce acne, unclog pores, exfoliate, diminish dark spots and discoloration, and improve overall skin tone and texture.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I only realized how much Solution has improved my skin when I looked at a photo of my unedited skin from six months ago. I have normal skin — slightly dry in winter, slightly oily in summer — and used to have hormonal breakouts pretty much constantly. Now I rarely get spots, even the week before my period. Before I bought it, I was worried that Solution would be too harsh — I don't like the feeling of stripping my skin — but it really is gentle enough to use everyday, and I love the fresh, clear, healthy skin glow it gives. I was skeptical that a product could be this good, but it really is worth the hype." —Beth

    Get it from Glossier for $24.

    17. An essential oil migraine stick so relentless headaches are finally a thing of the past. Peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils work together to bring you sweet relief from migraines that would otherwise ruin your day.

    Katy Herman / Via BuzzFeed, Yi Yang / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "OMG, finally something that works! I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years. I've tried everything: over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, pain injections, going to the chiropractor, etc. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now. I've only had two or three headaches in that time and they were mild. I've already ordered more so I have some in my car and at home, and I bought some for two of my friends who suffer from chronic migraines. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines — it's phenomenal." —Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    18. A Stila Stay All Day eyeliner pen to help you achieve the flawless cat eye you've been dreaming of for years. Great artists need great tools, and this...*wipes tear and Stila eyeliner stays sharp and intact*...is that tool.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Stila is the absolute best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried. It doesn't fade or crack and stays on through sleeping and tears. It's very smudge-proof and it does not flake AT ALL. It dries quickly and stays. It's also easy to clean off at the end of the day. No hard scrubbing to get it off — makeup wipes will take it off easily. It's amazing for creating perfect wings, or drawing artfully for Halloween. It's perfect for everyday subtle looks and for getting more creative and wild. I can use this eyeliner for months at a time without having to repurchase." —Chick

    19. An underwire bra that ACTUALLY FITS people with cup sizes above DD. Hundreds of people swear by this bra and say it lifts, separates, and stays comfortable. All. Day. Long.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a big-busted woman, and I have always struggled to find bras that fit. Most stores don't carry bras beyond a DDD cup so that's what I always wore, but they never did a great job and they broke down fairly quickly under the strain. This is the first bra I have EVER worn that actually fits, and I mean REALLY fits. I am a 42J, but believe me, no one would guess my cup size when I'm wearing this bra, because it keeps my breasts lifted where they need to be. For the first time ever, the center of the bra sits firmly against my chest wall, keeping my breasts separated all the time, whether I am standing or sitting. This has never been true of department store bras, which frankly are not made for people like me." —Amazon Fan

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 36DDD–46K and 17 colors).

    20. An Instant Pot that, in case you haven't heard, the people love! Finally teach your mom what a "stan" is by explaining that it's how she feels about her favorite 6-in-1 appliance.

    amazon.com

    The Instant Pot's 6-in-1 functions include: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, steamer, and warmer. What a multitasker!

    Promising review: "I've had this for only two weeks and I swear I haven't touched my stove or pans. So easy to use and so many functions. You can sauté meat, make hardboiled eggs, rice and beans, and steamed vegetables in a matter of minutes. The Instant Pot community is large, and there are always recipes to be shared. So simple to use and clean. I've made anything from perfectly hard boiled eggs whose shells just fall off on their own, to soups, to Mongolian beef, and spaghetti! I am so glad I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon and cannot wait to purchase accessories in the future to make cheesecake and other things." —yestfl

    Get a from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three-, six-, and eight-quart sizes).

    21. A pair of blue light–blocking glasses to help prevent those working from home from getting daily afternoon headaches. This simple and popular lens add-on really does help reduce eyestrain, which can cause much discomfort, especially if it's day after day after day.

    22. An Instax camera for capturing memories and storing them irl. I know, physical copies of photos are an anomaly, but you'll be happy to have them once The Cloud comes crashing down sometime in the future.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I highly recommend this camera! I used it for Thanksgiving and everyone got a good kick out of it! Many commented they are so glad that they are back into style and love the photos! The film is easy to store, but it does take practice adjusting on how to take it. I will continue to use this baby from here on out!" —Song Bird

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99+ (available in seven colors and with film packs), and while you're at it, pick up a 50-pack of film for $35.99.

    23. Tea tree oil that helps with rosacea, breakouts, acne, razor bumps, and so much more. Something for everyone!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a great product! I've been being using this the past two weeks to reduce acne and it really works! You can see the change from one day to another: it reduces the color and the bumpiness of your acne. At night I apply it directly to each one of the breakouts. It not only helps with the acne you have, but also helps preventing any more breakouts." —Cliente de Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    24. Fanola purple shampoo to help anyone with bleached hair maintain their icy look without expensive trips to the salon. The shampoo gives hair a healthy dose of toning with every wash, keeping the ever-present threat of brassiness from coming through.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm not one to leave reviews, but this product deserves it! Holy cow! I was going to go into the salon to brighten my hair up, but after discovering this product I cancelled my appointment. I'm totally in love! This shampoo is not drying at all and just after two washes I achieved my desired results! I can't recommend it enough!" —Rachael

    Promising review: "This is amazing! I bought this for a gift for my husband who drinks iced coffee all year long. He says it makes such a smooth tasting strong iced coffee. He gets two drinks out of each batch that he makes. It's easy to clean and can go in the dishwasher. Durable — I know as I'm clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!" —rnnichole

    AnaMaria Glavan / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have been using this twice a day for about a month now. After I cleanse my face, I use a cotton round and apply it all over my face and neck. I noticed reduction in redness and spots within two weeks! Just last night my boyfriend asked 'Did you already take your makeup off?' I had just cleansed my face and applied my Thayers. When I told him so, he said 'You look like you’re still wearing your makeup!' As someone who has always had some issues with acne and uneven skin tone, the reduction in redness is a god send! Definitely worth the cost to try it if you’re even slightly intrigued by this product’s abilities." —Ashley

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a great water bottle. I tested it by filling it with chilled water and taking it to the beach. It was a very hot day, the sun was beating down, and the sand was hot. I had the bottle out the whole time on the sand for several hours and the water remained very cold. I've also kept it in a hot car running errands on a 90+ degree day and again, the water stays refreshingly cold. I bought a second Hydro Flask for my desk at work, and the colors are so pretty. I bought one in mint and another in raspberry. It would also make a great gift. Highly recommend!" —AB

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I have these sprays in every bathroom in my home. I also travel with them because you know how it is in a hotel with the bathroom right there by where you're sleeping. I also keep one at work, although I had to start hiding it in the bathroom because apparently other people love it as much as I do and decided to take it home with them. I highly recommend. So much more effective than the 'courtesy flush.' By the time you do that one, the problem is already 'out there.' With Poo-Pourri, it never has a chance. I haven't met a scent I didn't like so far. What a great idea!" —Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "Dope blender. I pureed soup to a velvety texture in 30 seconds. Then made a lemon slushy. Super easy to clean and assemble. Fits under kitchen cabinet.
