    32 Crush-Worthy Things That Basically Give Me Butterflies In My Stomach

    ❤️ The best way to show products you love them is to smash "add to cart." ❤️

    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 clear bubble umbrella so chic, it'll almost have you wish for a rainy day just so you can sport your new favorite accessory.

    Promising review: "I love this umbrella! It rains all the time here in the Pacific Northwest, but I didn't want to stop my daily walks outside — this baby came to the rescue. It's not too heavy to carry, looks super cute, is VERY protective of the elements, and you can see through it, so it doesn't feel like as much of a barrier as other umbrellas. The only downside is that the long part is not collapsible, but I don't mind because I keep this at home when not in use. Highly recommend for outdoor walks." —Nina

    Get it from Amazon for $14 (also available in polka dot).

    2. A bottle of InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum that will make you feel like a mad yet stunning beauty scientist. This little dropper helps to reduce sun spots, discoloration, redness, hyper-pigmentation, and dark spots without drying you out. Paired with a good moisturizer, you'll be so happy you added one more step to your nightly routine.

    I use this serum every other night and think it helps ~smooth out~ my skin's texture.

    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 form Amazon for $17.07.

    3. A single-serve French press so adorable it almost makes me angry. Is my heart beating fast because I'm in love with a French press or because of all the caffeine?


    Promising review: "I'm absolutely happy that I chose this little French press! It's well-made, very attractive, and perfectly little. It makes the perfect single cup of coffee. I bought this for my husband, and he's never been more excited about making coffee than he is now. It's easy to use and easy to clean. I would definitely buy again." —Jenny F.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.

    4. A pair of yoga pants that won't cost you as much as a gym membership to be able to actually work out in them. Gym (eh, or couch) buddies for life., Amazon

    Promising review: I love these leggings! They fit so nicely and are not thin or see-through. I love how I also don’t have to tug them up — once you put these leggings on they stay in place whether you’re squatting, doing burpees, pushups, or box jumps. Usually I have to adjust most leggings after box jumps, because they love to wiggle down through the session. For the price, I like these far better than Nike ($40+), Reebok ($45+), or Under Armour ($45+). They are hands-down the best leggings I’ve ever bought on Amazon." —DarkStorm

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes XS–2XL, as well as 41 colors).

    5. An adjustable memory foam travel pillow, because anything that helps you sleep better during exhausting travel days is a friend, indeed.


    The cover is machine washable. Score!

    Promising review: "Most travel neck pillows make me feel completely overwhelmed, and this is especially great for those with shorter necks. It gives you control and once you get the positioning that you prefer, it is really comfortable and provides the right support in the right places. Also (and this was a selling point in the beginning), having used this on several long-haul flights, I loved that after each trip I could easily unzip the cover and throw it in the wash." —ltny

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A set of functional rose gold cooking tools so gorgeous they may distract you from actually cooking. *enters kitchen with full intent to make dinner, stares at ladle for three hours, orders takeout*


    The set includes a serving spoon, pasta serving fork, slotted spatula, kitchen skimmer and soup ladle.

    Promising review: "I didn't expect such good quality for the price I paid. These are very heavy utensils with a nice copper color. They look great in my kitchen! Happy with my purchase!" —PinaR

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $26.99 (also available in gold).

    7. A John Frieda Hot Air Brush for giving yourself the greatest blowout of your dang life. I implore you to take a million selfies and post as many as you like after using the brush — you deserve it.

    Promising review: "Let's face it. It's near impossible to get a salon blowout look at home. Your arms get tired, and trying to manage a brush and blowdryer is a feat in and of itself. This brush is not just good, it's great! I love this brush! I actually like the way my hair turns out with this styler better than what I get at the salon — seriously. I love my hairdresser and she does a great job, but I have actually gotten more compliments on my hair when I do it myself with this tool. I'll probably get two more to give to my daughters as well, that's how much I love it. This is great and you can't beat the price!" —debbie

    Get it from Amazon for $33.32+ (available in two sizes).

    8. Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips that wouldn't even THINK about leaving a blackhead behind. Slap these babies on for a one way ticket to cleaner, clearer skin.

    You'll get a combo-pack for both nose strips and facial strips!

    Promising review: "I have scrubbed the center of my forehead for months but the 'field of black dots' just remained no matter what. So finally I decided to give this a try. I followed instructions exactly (removed after 10 minutes) and after I peeled it off I looked and not a dot in sight — until I looked at the strip! That looked like a forest with all those 'dots' standing up on end. Highly recommend!" —David G.

    Get a 14-pack from Amazon for $7.52.

    9. A Touchland hand sanitizer for keeping your paws nice and squeaky clean. We stan a sanitary purse-mate.


    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in eight scents).

    10. A set of packing cubes that will somehow make vacation even BETTER by giving your hectic suitcase some much-needed order. I didn't think it was possible, and yet the cubes made it so.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    The set comes with four packing cubes of various size, as well as a laundry bag.

    I have these packing cubes and cannot recommend them enough. I just went on a two week vacation to New Zealand and just KNEW that by the time I got home my suitcase was going to look like two tornados kissing. But with the cubes, my suitcase was neat and tidy for the entire trip. By the end of week one, I found myself spontaneously yelling "I love the CUBES!" in a Seinfeld-adjacent voice, much to the dismay of everyone I was traveling with. But what can I say? I love these stinkin' cubes.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $24.99 (available in nine colors).

    11. A shower beer and wine holder you'll be dreaming about hopping in a steamy shower with alllll day long.

    Promising review: "We absolutely love this product. We have an Airstream and had been looking for wine and beverage holders that would work with the stainless interior walls. After looking at many competitors, we decided to give SipCaddy a try because it wasn't permanent and we were worried about leaving any marks to the interior. I have to say that they work perfectly and have lived up to their description. The suction cup mount has a firm hold and we haven't had any spills or accidents. We also have used them in our little boat and again they have worked like a charm. A+++" —Dale Risenhoover

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    12. A Lodge cast iron skillet that will be a full-on life partner. These things cook almost every food to perfection, look ~rustic~ and cool on your stovetop, and will — to be honest — outlive you.


    Promising review: "I am very pleased with this skillet. I seasoned it twice at 450°F for an hour and now I make scrambled eggs, fried potatoes and fish — all without sticking. But today it passed the ultimate test — I made a whole batch of thin crepes and they turned out wonderful. No sticking whatsoever, no black residue like some other cast iron skillets I tried and it seasons so well I don't have to redo it all the time like I did with my other skillet, which still would stick to everything (old mountain). Buy this skillet, you won't regret it. It's actually my favorite skillet now and I'm planning to buy one more." —Anais

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (originally $13.52+, available in nine sizes).

    13. A liquid lipstick from Fluide — a queer-owned and super gender-inclusive makeup brand 100% worthy of a crush.

    Promising review: "These are the best thing to happen to my big thighs. They have generous silicone anti-slip around the top and bottom on the inside. They keep my thighs from rubbing and chafing in shorts or dresses AND they’re pretty!" —Lizzy S.

    Get them from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in sizes A–F and 14 colors).

    15. Cult-favorite Tarte Face Tape Foundation whose hypoallergenic and long-wearing formula will keep you covered and naturally matte all the livelong day. It seems like the whole world is in love with this stuff, so you probably will be, too.


    The foundation is vegan, paraben-free and phthalate-free.

    Promising review: "DEFINITELY BEST FOUNDATION EVER. Such a full-coverage foundation, it’s hands down a must have. Doesn’t crease or look caked up at the end of the day. I’m absolutely in love! I will forever recommend this product." —Angela Z

    Get it from Tarte for $39 (available in 50 shades).

    16. A Squatty Potty for when you get *butterflies in your stomach* if ya know what I mean. Get out, butterflies! Swiftly into the pot you go!


    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this enough. This little shelf has changed my life. I've been having bowel issues since my teenage years — 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." —MsNiters

    18. A red wine stain remover that will come to your rescue should you spill any merlot throughout the night. *swoon* My hero.

    Emily Shwake / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "When you have anything white in your house and you have a love for red wine THIS PRODUCT IS A MUST! We had a dinner party of about 15 people in our house so I bought five bottles just in case. Someone spilled red wine on our brand new white couch. I was so mad, but I used this stuff and it was GONE. It didn't just take most of the red wine out — the red wine was GONE! No trace of it at all! I will buy more!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.67.

    20. A pack of jumbo divider sticky notes that will have all you organization lovers SHAKING. Turning any notebook into a notebook with dividers is an undeniably attractive power move.


    Promising review: "These sticky notes are excellent. They come in a booklet, with a clear cover over and a card-like paper with a blue mandala pattern at the back, which is really neat and beautiful. The colors are quite neon and bright and look exactly as the picture shows. The tabs are neat and noticeable at any angle, and are 2.4 cm or about 0.8 inches in length. The paper note itself is 14.8 cm or 5.8 inches in length. They came in neatly and safely packaged, with no dirt or paper creasing in sight." —Malik

    Get it from Amazon for $2.71.

    21. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo so you can skip the salon for touchups and save that cash, baby. You'll be an ice queen with a full wallet thanks to this lifesaving purple goop.

    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

    22. A jewelry cleaning pen you'll love so much for its quick and easy shining skills, you may just want to propose to it with the ring you just cleaned.

    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 $5.49.

    23. A combo dry shampoo and sea salt spray that will simultaneously mattify and give volume to your hair for the perfect "I just got out of the ocean but am somehow clean as a whistle" look.


    I. Love. This. Spray. I had a straight up mullet for a while, and this product did wonders for getting rid of oils in the short front while intentionally mussing up the back. "Captain Blankenship" doesn't sound like they're punk rock, but trust me, they are.

    Get it from Target for $14.99.

    24. An external battery so you never have to worry about your phone dying from using a maps app so much before you even reach your destination. Yes, you are strong and independent, but just face it — you'd literally be lost without this battery.


    It holds three FULL charges for an iPhone and is an everyday essential.

    Promising review: "Got this as a gift for my wife before we went overseas for two weeks. She was able to charge her phone during the day for four or five days before it needed to be recharged. I was actually very impressed with it." —Ray Detwiler

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in four colors).

    25. A subscription to Book of the Month, a subscription service so full of nerdy fun, you will never ever want to cancel it. A new best seller picked by YOU every month? Too good to be true.

    My partner got me a personalized embosser as a gift, and I love it more than I can say! It lends some legitimacy to my stacks of "well-loved" books, and heck, it's just fun to use.

    Promising review: "This was a surprise for my spouse. It arrived sooner than expected, and it's a big hit. I ordered adhesive gold foil stamps which can easily be embossed and then placed on the page. If you want to forego the stamps, the design looks great on the page as well." —jamesosews

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    27. An adorable and cozy pajama set you'll be eager to get home to and snuggle with every night.,

    Promising review: "These pajamas have quickly become my favorite set of PJs. They are the softest pair of pajamas I've ever owned. The waist band on the shorts is elastic with wide leg openings. I like my pajamas to be loose fitting, so I ordered a size up. The detailing on the top makes it look like I'm a classy pajama girl when in actuality, I just like comfortable, soft PJs. These will make you feel like you're getting the luxe treatment without spending a ton of money. Seriously, these are the best." —Lauren Caldwell

    Get them from Amazon for $25.49+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 26 colors and patterns).

    29. A Stasher bag — a reusable silicone sandwich and snack bag that will transport your food safely to and fro and help you reduce your plastic waste! "Looks like a pain to clean," I hear you mutter. Welp, they're dishwasher safe, so joke's on you.


    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. And they are — one more time for the people in the back — DISHWASHER-SAFE!

    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!" —Drea_reviews

    Get a sandwich-sized bag from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in five sizes and 12 colors).

    30. An Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, because only your real pals let you watch pretty much whatever you want whenever you want and don't complain (even if it's because the stick can't speak).


    Promising review: "This Fire Stick is truly a blessing. I wanted something where I could easily watch TV and stream some things for free. There are a lot of apps that you can download on this Fire Stick that are free, along with the things you need subscriptions for. I was especially impressed with how easy it was to set up. All I had to do was insert the Fire Stick on the side of my TV, put the included batteries in the remote, and BOOM! You're good to go. I also feel like Alexa is my new best friend now. She answers all of my questions on time!" —Stephanie Lingo

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    I have this candle and adore it. Tennis ball smell is the best smell of all smells, send tweet.

    Get it from Otherland for $36, and shop the rest of their scents here.

    32. A Nintendo Switch that'll break your heart every time you need to put down the controller and go to work. It's almost TOO fun. I would let a Nintendo Switch ruin my life, AMA.


    Promising review: "This console is so awesome! It seems like Nintendo hits it right on every console since the N64 — the Switch is another home run. The ability to dock or take it on the go is a huge convenience. Many nights I've wanted to continue playing, but don't want to stay out in my living room — no problem with the Switch! The motion controls take a little bit to get used to, but make it even more fun once you've figured them out. I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase as of today." —Ty C.
