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 โ€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. 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.


    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." โ€”madeline

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

    Check our our review of this and several other Glossier products in "Just 9 Glossier Products We Really Love."

    2. An Aztec Secret face mask you've almost definitely heard about by now. The hype is real and for good reason! The calcium bentonite clay sucks sebum out of pores, leaving your skin feeling smoother and breakouts feeling calmer.,

    For best results, mix the clay with apple cider vinegar according to the directions.

    Promising review: "The best clay mask out there. Every member of my family fell in love after trying it once. It will get really stiff and will pull blood to the surface, which is good because it promotes increased blood circulation to the surface of your face which in turn renews your skin cells faster. Due to this reason, you should expect to have slightly red face after use. Best used at night, or during a day where you will stay home for a couple hours." โ€”Latifa Sharker

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    3. An Amazon Fire Stick, because if you're still paying for cable in 2021...maybe don't! The Fire Stick makes *any* TV a smart TV and gives you easy access to all one million of your subscription services.

    the fire stick's remote with the caption "alexa, play mandelorian on Disney plus"

    Promising review: "I cut the cord years ago and mostly stream in my laptop. My apartment came with a 55โ€ TV, and it was annoying having to attach my laptop to it via HDMI when I wanted a larger viewing screen. I didnโ€™t know what to expect from this device, but Iโ€™m impressed! Worked immediately. Very easy to set up. Love that you can activate apps using a code versus typing in your username and password. It has every app I need. Even with my relatively slow internet, I get greater quality. Very happy with it!" โ€”K. Whiting

    Get it from Amazon or $39.99.

    4. A Tub Shroom to save you time and money by preventing 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!

    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." โ€”S.K.M.

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

    Check out "This Mushroom-Shaped Hair Catcher Is So Gross, But Really Satisfying" for more *hair-raising* pics and glowing reviews!

    5. A bottle of Garnier micellar water that is both a facial cleanser *and* makeup remover! It's gentle formula, effectiveness on most skin types, and low price point have garnered it so much reviewer love. That's a lot of happy, streak-free eyeballs!

    hand holding bottle of micellar water

    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 โ€” 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 โ€” now my face-cleansing brush is able to clean my skin and not work so hard at my makeup!" โ€”hollyb28

    Get it from Amazon for $6.34.

    This product was named best makeup remover in the lowest price category on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    6. A Sea to Summit roll-top dry sack outdoorsy folks love because their uses are pretty much limitless. Waterproofing all of your gear is a must, and popping your electronics, food, and clothes in a roll-top assures you they'll stay safe. I even use my dry sack full of clothes as a pillow on backpacking trips, and can't recommend these any more highly for anyone planning any adventures this year.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed, Backcountry

    These bags are an outdoorsy person staple, and in my humble opinion you can never have too many. The classic version (left) is best if you're going to be on the water and I like the Ultra-Sil version (right) for camping and backpacking trips since they're a little lighter and the somewhat transparent material lets you get a better idea of where things are inside. As I mentioned I use one of these as a clothes bag/pillow and have no complaints at all. We also use one as our bear bag for hangin food, toiletries, and trash at night. It's easy to roll down with minimal ballooning once you get the hang of it and they help keep my pack nice and organized. Does everything need to go in a bag? No. But for things that need to be 100% waterproofed, these are my go-to.

    Get it from Backcountry for $14.95+ (available in sizes 1Lโ€“35L and five colors).

    7. A pair of Allbirds Wool Runners that became mega-popular a few years back for a reason. They're supportive, great for warm or cold weather, and my own pair are barely showing signs of wear after two years of lovin'.

    writer wearing monochromatic  teal wool allbirds
    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    I really wondered if these would live up to the hype, but the answer is a resounding "yes." 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. They're even machine washable, a quality I thought was going to have to use all the time because of their wool exterior, but they've never seemed dirty enough to warrant a wash! 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. When I got them I thought they'd be a little niche, but I throw them on for more occasions than I would have ever imagined, from grocery runs to grand adventures. I got a whole size up from what I normally wear and they fit perfectly.

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 for women's sizes (available in sizes 5โ€“11 and 18 colors) and $95 for men's sizes (available in sizes 8โ€“14 and 21 colors).

    8. Fanola purple shampoo to help people 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.

    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!" โ€”Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

    If you're a blondie who's tired of being brassy, check out "If You Color Your Hair Blonde, You Need This Purple Shampoo" for more info.

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

    model in dark purple underwire bra

    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." โ€”Amazon Fan

    Get it from Amazon for $18.44+ (available in sizes 36DDDโ€“46K and 16 colors).

    Check out "Hundreds Of Big-Breasted People Swear This DD+ Bra Is The Only One That Fits Comfortably" for more info!

    10. A 3-in-1 avocado slicer. I know what you're thinking, "Why do I need this tool that literally does the job of a knife." Well, my dude, people say that this thing helps them perfectly halve, de-pit, and slice avocados easily and beautifully. Don't be a naysayer, and join them in their joyful superfood wonderland!

    avocado slicer with one cutting end, a depitter in the middle, and one sliding end

    Promising review: "If you even looked through these reviews to decide if you truly needed an avocado slicer, the answer is clear โ€” 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." โ€”Friendly redwood

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. 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 in-tact* that tool.,

    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 โ€” 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." โ€”Chick

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 9 colors and three styles).

    12. A pair of Girlfriend Collective compressive high-waisted leggings, because you deserve to have a pair of leggings you really, truly love for both working out *and* hanging out.

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    My colleague Melanie has these and loves them! In her words: "Right off the bat, I was impressed by how buttery soft these leggings were. They're super stretchy (definitely squat-proof!) and supportive without being constricting. And at $68, they're a total steal given how high-quality they are. I usually wear them for low-impact workouts, like Pilates and yoga (and lounging on the couch), but they didn't let me down during high-impact HIIT cardio classes either. The material is really breathable so even though I'm sweating a lot during my workouts, the leggings don't get swampy. They're machine-washable and still look brand-new (no pilling here!). In fact, I liked them so much that I ended up getting a second pair to give the other ones a break."

    Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in sizes XXSโ€“6X, three inseam lengths, and eight colors).

    13. Thayer's Witch Hazel toner to cleanse your skin while reducing redness, breakouts, and dullness. It also smells like roses, making it the perfect romantic gift from you to you.

    AnaMaria Glavan / 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 youโ€™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 youโ€™re even slightly intrigued by this productโ€™s abilities." โ€”Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three scents).

    14. A Diva Cup for updating your old menstruation habits, making them more sustainable. It's not for everybody, but the people who swear by it love not being beholden to tampon change times, actually seeing what's coming out of their body, and just letting their cycle ~do its thing~.

    clear cilicone diva cup with stem

    Cups only need to be changed every 12 hours, meaning you're free to go about your life! Cleanup during your cycle is as easy as washing it with Diva Wash or gentle soap between uses when possible, and post-cycle care requires boiling your cup to sanitize it. Need some period advice? Head to "37 Menstrual Cup Tips From People Who Actually Use Them."

    Promising review: "I love my diva cup. It does take a little bit of practice to get the placement right but once you get the hang of it it's great! If its uncomfortable then its probably not placed right. I feel so much cleaner and I don't leak anymore! It's also so much more convenient because you dont have to change it as much throughout the day. Or worry about having the right products for your specific flow! I will never go back." โ€”Mcbric2

    Get it from Target: a size one cup for $37.49 and a size two cup for $37.49.

    15. A Stasher bag so you can have snacks with you at ๐Ÿ‘ all๐Ÿ‘ times๐Ÿ‘ without using disposable plastic bags. They're also dishwasher-safe for easy-peasy cleanup.

    sandwiches and snacks stored in silicone stasher bags

    Stasher bags have so many uses! They are obviously great for storing and transporting food, but they can also be used to sous vide, marinate, and microwave.

    Promising review: "What's not to love about Stasher bags? They are so versatile, colorful, and easy to care for. Bonus: you are keeping plastic out of landfills! I use these for meal-prep and kids' lunchboxes. Easy to open and, again, so easy to clean. Stop browsing for environmental alternatives, and order these today!" โ€”Drea_reviews

    Get a sandwich-sized bag from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in seven sizes and 14 colors).

    16. Tea tree oil that over 7,500 people have given a five-star review on Amazon! It makes sense, considering how well it can help with rosacea, breakouts, acne, razor bumps, and so! much! more!

    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." โ€”Cliente de Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    17. An essential oil migraine stick so relentless headaches are finally a thing of the past. Peppermint, spearmint and lavender oils work together to help 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 โ€” it's phenomenal." โ€”Mary D.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    model wearing the blush in dark purple shade "storm"

    I use Cloud Paint in the shade "Puff" literally everyday. Even if I don't do a full face, it makes me feel more put together and tbh just ~pretty~.

    Promising review: "I'm SO OBSESSED with these blushes! I use the colors Dusk and Beam. I love using Dusk on an everyday basis, it compliments my warm, light to medium skintone really well and makes my cheeks look so fresh and glowy. I like using Beam when I want a more bright cheek look. I like to apply the blush using my fingers. It gives my cheeks the perfect amount of color. GET THIS BLUSH! You won't regret it." โ€”bittersweetmich

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

    model in red fabric flats

    Promising review: "I am a plus size woman who has had a hard time finding a comfortable flat shoe. Well, I finally found it. This shoe is not only comfortable, it is stylish and eco friendly.

    20. A humidifier and essential oil diffuser over 45,000 people have given a five-star review on Amazon. That's FOUR TIMES as many people as my hometown. Imagine โ€” four towns of relaxed people with well-hydrated sinuses.

    reviewer's glowing blue diffuser and humidifier

    Promising review: "I love this little diffuser. It is the perfect thing to have on a nightstand if you like to use essential oils to help you sleep. I was having a bout of insomnia and someone suggested I try lavender oil at night. I am a convert. This diffuser puts out a very, very fine mist which adds just a touch of humidity to help your sinuses while you sleep too. The lights are soft and colorful and I imagine would make a great nightlight for a small child. It's a really great value for the money and I've used it for HOURS a night every single night since I bought it without a single issue. Love it!" โ€”Debbie in WS

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four colors).

    21. A cold brew maker for whipping up the good stuff overnight! The infuser makes either one or two quarts of concentrated iced coffee, so you can have glass after glass of your favorite form of bean juice nearly effortlessly.

    The cold brew maker is BPA-free, has a non-slip handle, and produces four servings of the good stuff.

    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 โ€” I know as I'm clumsy and have dropped it several times without an issue. We are considering getting a second one!" โ€”rnnichole

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two sizes).

    22. Bare Minerals Original Loose Powder Foundation that's been adored for ages for its easy application, natural look, and luminous finish. And as if it couldn't get any better, it's also SPF 15, so your skin can stay safe and healthy all day long.

    Bare Minerals

    The foundation is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free.

    Promising review: "I have acne prone skin and suffer from breakouts and large pores. I always thought a liquid foundation would give me the most coverage with the least product and that powder would be patchy... boy way I wrong! This is amazing and makes my pores disappear. It also is the first foundation that seems to have reduced inflammation and acne when I take it off rather than aggravate it. I also love that the shades are versatile so I can get away with the same shade throughout the year if I buff it in well." โ€”Mnm1

    Get it from Bare Minerals for $32 (available in 30 shades).

    23. A shampoo brush so you can give yourself a salon-quality scalp massage in the comfort of your own shower. Besides just feeling great, the massager also loosens dead skin cells and product buildup to lessen dandruff and promote hair growth.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this scalp massager. I use it when I put the shampoo on then I scrub my scalp and loosen all of the products from the week. This massager feels so good I look forward to my scalp cleansing process. I would highly recommend this particular device. I have another brand and they are not created equal." โ€”MISSISSIPPI QUEEN

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in four colors).

    24. An Instax camera for capturing memories and storing them irl instead of ~the Cloud~. Instax fans love this camera for its instant gratification, physical prints, and vintage flair.

    model holding light blue square instax camera

    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!" โ€”Song Bird

    Get it from Amazon for $54.95+ (available in 13 colors).

    25. Belif's Aqua Bomb Moisturizer whose gel-cream formula has kept my own face feeling happy for years. Me, and tons of other Aqua Bomb lovers, find this cooling, calming, soothing cream to be just what our skin wants in the morning and at night all year long.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    The moisturizer is sulfate-, paraben-, and phthalate-free.

    Aqua Bomb is my go-to moisturizer and has been for years. What makes Aqua Bomb so special is its gel-cream formula, which is cooling and calming on the skin โ€” like giving your skin a big ol' glass of water. It feels as incredible to put on sun-weary skin in the hot months of summer as on chapped, dry skin in the winter. It's an everyday, all year product. It goes on a little shiny, but very quickly soaks in, leaving you with a subtle glow. These days, I rock that glow on its own all day long, but it also layers flawlessly under full face of makeup. It never feels sticky โ€” my skin drinks it up so quickly it doesn't even have a chance to!

    Get it from Sephora for $22+ (available in two sizes).

    For my entire review, head to "Why Belif Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Has Been Part Of My Skincare Routine For Years."

    reviewer's tall narrow navy screw-top hydro flask

    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!" โ€”AB

    Get it from Amazon for $28.75+ (available in three sizes and 14 colors).

    27. A Squatty Potty because *NEWS FLASH* it's helping thousands of people poop better. Not to be hyperbolic, but I love my Squatty Potty more than I love any human, and I'm not sorry!


    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years โ€” I wish this had come into my life sooner. Every time I step off the toilet now I feel lighter, fresher, and like a new person." โ€”MsNiters

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for my wife a few weeks ago โ€” she was very skeptical when she opened the box and took it out, but since then she has used it every night and she absolutely loves it! It does help her relax and sleep better." โ€”Amazon Customer

    hand holding product bottle with pump top

    The oil is paraben-free, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and vegan.

    My colleague Rebecca has this and loves it! In her own words: "This is the stuff of dreams, people! I put it on my face at night after serum and before my night cream, and wake up with bouncy, bright skin. The first time I used it, I had overnight results. I am constantly yelling about this product to everyone who will listen; I even convinced my dermatologist to try it."

    Get it from Biossance for $8+ (available in two sizes).

    30. Mike's Hot Honey whose sweet and spicy flavor profile have made it a unique crowd favorite. It's great on everything from pizza and sandwiches to ice cream and brownies, so get some and get creative.

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. It makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, and gives an unexpected zip to dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? Have given it as hostess gifts several times and everyone gets hooked." โ€”Martha Ronemus

    Rachel Dunkel / Via BuzzFeed,

    To use, simply wet the sponge, squeeze out any excess water, and bounce your foundation right on!

    Promising review: "I LOVE this blender! It is more expensive than the off-brands but you are getting a quality product that you can wash and re-use often. You do need to use it damp which is very easy, you just hold it under running water while squeezing the excess water out for about 20 seconds and you will have the most amazing blending tool. I use it to put on my BB cream and my highlighter and to blend in my concealer." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in 11 colors).

    32. A pair of Smartwool socks, because they really are just the best in the biz. Stop buying replacement pairs when yours get toe holes and just invest in some that will last basically f-o-r-e-v-e-r!

    a pair of the crew-height socks in black, grey, pink, and blue stripes

    Smartwool socks famously last for so long due to their smart layering in areas of the sock that will get the most wear. They're warm, soft, and just all around a killer sock. I love them for both hiking and everyday use!

    Promising review: "I started wearing Smartwool socks with my hiking boots years ago but they are so comfy, warm and cute that I now buy them to wear with all my boots and shoes in the winter. They are well-made and wash perfectly. I bought a pair of red walking shoes and I knew I needed a pair of Smartwool socks to go with them. Okay, they cost more than fashion socks but they are worth it." โ€”Maddiegg

    Get them from Amazon for $13.83+ (available in women's sizes 4โ€“13 and nine colors). Shop all Smartwool's options here!

    My colleague Melanie owns and loves these jeans. In her own words: "These jeans! Where do I start? Well, first of all, they are surprisingly comfortable. They've been my go-to pair since pre-COVID times. I have a bad habit of eating to the point of being uncomfortably full (I just like food, OK?) and these pants never cut into my hips or stomach when I looked about three months pregnant with a baked mac 'n' cheese baby. Now that eating in restaurants isn't really a thing, I've still gravitated toward these jeans on days when I just want to feel...normal... I can sit at my desk while wearing them (sometimes I even sit cross legged) and I totally forget I'm wearing denim. And unrelated to their comfort, I love them because 1. they cup my butt nicely and don't make it look like a pancake and 2. they're the perfect length for my annoyingly short legs."

    Get them from Levi's for $98 (available in sizes 23โ€“32 and six washes).

    34. A vitamin C serum that's the perfect product to try if you're looking to lessen dark circles, sun spots, redness, and breakouts.

    Promising review: "The results are unbelievable, Was a bit skeptical because all the reviews were from caucasian women. I was slightly worried that my skin would not respond as well but I was quite mistaken. With or without makeup, my skin is bright, smooth and my spots are disappearing. One other result I am sure a number of people have not noticed is that your palms get softer too. I guess the residue on the palms makes it soft and supple." โ€”Mayowa O.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    35. A nose-saving bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray people swear helps keep their BMs on the DL. It has thousands of five-star reviews on Amazon, and the verdict is in: this stuff works.

    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!" โ€”Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in seven sizes and six scents).

    36. A Vitamix for whipping up delectable smoothies, soups, nut butters, and much more, quickly and sooooo smoothly. Since we're spending so much time cooking at home lately, it may finally be time to take the plunge.

    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. I didn't think it was too loud. I highly recommend this blender. I was not provided with a free product โ€” I'm just a dude who likes his new blender." โ€”Bobby

    Get it from Amazon for $349.95.

    This Vitamix also won best high-end blender from BuzzFeed Reviews! Congratulations to the Vitamix!
