    1. A garlic twist that’ll make mincing garlic the breeziest of breezes. Reviewers say this little contraption works best with two or three cloves at a time — but once you’ve popped them into the chamber, all you have to do is twist the halves back and forth a few times, and voila! Perfectly minced garlic.

    Reviewer's photo of minced garlic in the garlic twist

    Promising review: “I bought this initially to use on our sailboat because a stainless steel press gets corroded in salt water and chopping garlic is messy on a boat (little pieces flying everywhere). I love it so much, I now use it even at home; I haven't pulled out my garlic press since I bought it. I find garlic minced in this doesn't burn as easily as the fibrous bits are still in there; you use all of the garlic clove, which I like. As long as you run it under the faucet soon after using, it's not difficult to clean. I'm buying several for stocking stuffers for my older kids who are getting into cooking.” —Spacecat47

    Price: $21.95 (available in three colors)

    2. A pack of cupboard bumpers, because if you're anything like me, you have an unfortunate tendency to slam the cabinets shut after your late-night snack attacks.

    Promising review: "Works perfectly for cabinet stoppers. I needed to replace all my cabinet stops and these did the trick! All kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets no longer 'bang' when closed. Should I need more, I’ll be back to buy more." —funformom

    Price: $8.97+ (available in packs of 100 or 200)

    3. A lifelike bird of paradise plant your friends will swear is real. Reviewers love using it in spaces where a living plant would struggle, and because it needs zero care to keep it looking phenomenal.


    Finally a plant that does well without water, and with only artificial light.

    Promising review: "So happy about this! I shopped around a LOT to get a nice-looking fake palm that wasn’t ridiculously expensive. I had a real one in this spot but there wasn’t enough light, and this looks so good. Every leaf is a little different (texture, color, ribs) so it looks more natural. The wires are very stiff, which is good so you can adjust each stem exactly how you want it to fill your space and can adjust the directions of each leaf too. I bought an expensive ceramic pot from a local nursery and love these together." —JMA

    Price: $58.99+ (available in three heights)

    4. A Lulu dupe longline sports bra so you can switch up your workout looks. This super soft sports bra pairs perfectly with your favorite pair of high-waisted leggings. Take it to the gym or make it an everyday look with a jacket and jeans!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a Lululemon 'Align' tank dupe and this is it! I’m honestly surprised this top hasn’t gotten more attention because it is such a gem!! I love activewear and I’m very impressed by the quality of this top for the price. The fabric is so soft stretchy and opaque yet sleek enough where it won’t pill. The fabric hugs me in and doesn’t gape at my waist (26”), so hopefully it won’t stretch over time. The seams themselves are different but they are positioned exactly the same as the Lulu tank. I’m 5’6" and this top hits me right above my waist, so I can comfortably wear high waisted leggings/pants without a ton of midriff being exposed. There is a lot of structure to the top which aids in providing medium support and functionality to the top even without adjustable straps. The bra band inside is tight yet comfortable. Even the foam cups are nice!  I am just so in love with the sweetheart neckline and sleek silhouette and I’m very pleased with this purchase. This is a great staple piece for anyone who’s ballin' on a budget. Do not hesitate to buy this top!" —Allie

    Price: $21.99+ (available in women's sizes XS-XL and 12 colors)

    5. A set of gardening shears, because your outdoor landscaping situation is in need of some *serious* TLC. They're nice and sharp, spring loaded, easy to handle, and the locking mechanism actually works so they stay shut when you're not using them.

    Cutting with the orange shears

    Promising review: "I love gardening and have used a lot of different pruners over the years. I recommend these pruners for a number of reasons. First, they are easy to lock and unlock. I really like the slider mechanism versus others that have a latch-type lock. Second, the long, narrow blades are ideal for cutting the stems you want without injuring or accidentally cutting adjacent ones. This time of year I like to cut a few flowers from my yard daily and bring them inside to enjoy. A well-made and well-designed pruner makes this task even more enjoyable." —Liv

    Price: $6.99 (available in two oclors)

    6. A tree light that'll bring a warm glow to your space in the most artistic fashion. This tree looks like a sculpture, and will definitely become the centerpiece of any room in which it's found.

    A tabletop fairy tree light

    This tree has two power source options: plug-in USB and battery operated. It comes with 36 LED lights. 

    Promising review: "I love this tree light. It gives off a soft glow and makes the room feel so warm and comfy. So easy to assemble. Love that you can use batteries or plug it into a USB outlet. Looks more expensive than what I paid for it." —Susie Wong

    Price: $16.99+ (available in seven colors)

    7. A Cat Dancer toy, which is just a piece of cardboard on wire, but boy howdy do kitties adore swatting and jumping at it.

    A cat plays with the toy in an image labelled "CAT DANCER, easily moves like a bug with a flick of the wrist!"

    Promising review: "I have a whole room filled with cat toys that my cat is not interested in. It's funny how the least expensive cat toy I have is the one he loves best. He plays with this until he's panting like a dog and I have never seen him jump so high. He loves it! I highly recommend it!" —Em

    Price: $2.95

    8. An “All Out Of” memo pad that’ll help you plan out your next grocery shopping trip like a pro: just check off the box next to the item on the list when you realize you're out. Plus, there’s extra room to write in your personal staples. And with everything organized into a whopping 22 categories – well, let’s just say that you’ll probably never forget anything again. Ever.

    The memo pad in blue

    Laoganma Spicy Chili Crisp would be at the top of my "oh yeah, add" list. What about you?

    Promising review: “If you're like me, you become a ‘deer in the headlights’ when you walk into the grocery store. That's why this notepad is a game-changer. We keep this on the refrigerator and check the appropriate box whenever we use the last of/realize we are out of something. I also use this list to plan for shopping trips. There is nothing worse than getting back from the store and realizing that you forgot to buy something essential. Making a list only helps when you think of everything that you need when you're making the list. ‘All out of’ provides a comprehensive list of the essentials and helps with the brainstorming process. I have already recommended this product to my friends.” —Amazon customer

    Price: $6.36+ (available in original, keto, and vegan versions, and six colors)

    9. A pair of wireless headphones, which offer excellent sound quality for the price — not bad, considering they cost 60% less than a pair of comparable Beats. They also have the features you're looking for: they're waterproof, noise-cancelling, and work for up to nine hours, so you'll get hyped and focus on your workout.

    A reviewer wears the headphones

    Promising review: "These fit very comfortably! My hubby has Beats, but I'm not willing to spend that kind of money on something like this and it turns out these are more comfortable than his Beats! The part that hooks on the ear is a soft silicone, not a hard plastic. I had Bluetooth in-ear headphones (I lost them, hence this purchase) before these and the sound was terrible while running. The sound is great with these. The little thing on the cord keeps it from flopping and pulling these out of your ears while you run, jump, etc. Bluetooth is great, and prevents you from accidentally catching the cord and sending your phone across the room. The Bluetooth connected quick and easy. The controls are self-explanatory and easy to figure out. My only complaint is that the volume up and skip ahead button is toward the back while the volume down and go back button is in the front. That seems backwards to me, but there are only three buttons, so once you figure it out it's not hard to remember." —Kim

    Price: $23.10

    10. A bottle of RMR-86 instant stain remover spray that'll get the mold and mildew off of your outdoor furniture lickety-split.

    I know a number of people who do mold remediation (long story); they swear by this stuff.

    Promising review: "Not many products deliver on their promise like this one does. I was shocked how quick it works and took before more like during and after pics and sent to a bunch of friends and my parents. 10/10 recommend. Does have strong fumes." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $16.99+ (available in three sizes)

    11. A soft and stretchy V-neck T-shirt, because summer is upon us and you're gonna wanna wear this every day. It has très chic tulip sleeves to elevate it over your basic tee, so go ahead and take this look from a day on the couch to a fun night out.

    A reviewer modeling a pink v neck tshirt

    Promising review: "Awesome T-shirt! Love the sleeves on the shirt. Adds more interest to a basic V-neck tee. I was worried the white might be see-through, but it’s not. If you wear it untucked over jeans or something dark, it will peek through a little, but I tuck the front in a little. The shirt is also a great length and it’s roomy. I have a long torso, and this top is plenty long enough. I will be ordering more colors. Highly recommend!" —MikeB

    Price: $18.99+ (available in women's sizes S–2XL and 24 colors)

    12. A ChuckIt ball, because it's amazingly durable and the puppers adore them.

    A black and white dog with the orange and blue ball in its mouth

    Promising review: "Well, this is the ONLY toy that our dog LOVES. The ChuckIt Ultra is her obsession. She has them strategically hidden around the house for quick and easy access. Also, she follows us around with one, and sometimes even brings one to bed with her. She is a 50-lb Springer Spaniel and has only managed to crack one of these balls in over two years, and she chews on them almost like a pacifier — she'll just sit there and chomp on it. They are easy to throw, they bounce great, they float, they are super easy to wash off (that alone is worth the 5 stars for anyone out there who has tried to wash off a tennis ball) and they are really durable." —P. Hanson

    Price: $4.79+ (available in five sizes)

    13. A three-in-one silicone caulking tool that comes equipped with a trowel and five replaceable pads, a cleaning blade, and a steel scraper. You'll love reliving the satisfaction of getting nice neat edges every time you look at your excellent filling and groutwork.


    Promising review: "I had to re-do some caulking around two bathrooms as well as some external door frames. I bought this little tool to make the process go more smoothly and I am so glad that I did! The scraper quickly and easily removed the old caulking from all the surfaces and worked so much better than tools I have used before. It was so much easier to scrape out the old stuff. I then used the opposite end with the rubber spatula attachments to smooth out the new caulking. It made a clean and smooth line on tile, marble, and wood surfaces. This baby makes my work look much more professional than what I have done before. It’s also super cheap!" —Fhdaddy

    Price: $12.99

    14. A bamboo bath caddy because your self-care routine deserves a glow up. With plenty of room for a drink, snacks, a tablet, and a candle, you might wind up in the bath all day long.

    An adjustable, bamboo bath tray above a bath with a drink, iPad, and candle atop

    The adjustable width extends to over 3 feet wide, which should be plenty even for a very large bathtub. Also, it's nonslip, so you don't accidentally bump your tablet into your bubble bath.  

    Promising review: "It was so good that I ordered another two for gifts. It looks really expensive and has an edge of practical style, especially with secure wine glass holder, iPad rest, and candleholder, all adding to a luxurious-looking style." —Ann Tyson

    Price: $23.95 (available in two colors)

    15. A yoga mat strap designed to fit any yoga mat you have, so you can stop trying to figure out a comfortable way to carry one to and from class. This is the best way!,

    Promising review: "This is SO handy. I wish I had bought it sooner! It makes storing and transporting my mat way, way easier, and the strap itself is wide and doesn't hurt my shoulder." —Sarah Marie

    Price: $7.49+ (available in two sizes and seven colors)

    16. A faux fur blanket for those looking to level up their snuggling game. A plush, luxurious throw for under $25? Yes, please!

    A white faux fur throw blanket draped over an accent chair

    You're in luck, it's machine-washable *and* dryer-safe.

    Promising review: "Not only is this throw soft and lightweight, it is warm and beautiful. I keep it draped on my bed and rarely walk by without running my hand over it. The feel of it never disappoints! Would buy it again and it is definitely gift-worthy. Looks much more expensive than it was." —Christine

    Price: $14.43+ (available in three sizes and six colors)

    17. A baking soda-based deodorizer to make your cat's litter box smell like not much at all, without having to mask odors with an overpowering fragrance.

    A box of the deoderizer

    For all y'all with fragrance sensitivities, sorry but this product is not fragrance-free. It has a light citrus smell. Some reviewers who are scent-averse really like it, but you know your limits of course and should order accordingly.

    Promising review: "NEVER get five cats! But, if you do this stuff will eliminate the stink in the litter box. We still have to scoop them daily, but the house smells like humans live there, which is nice. I like this brand because it eliminates order without adding too much additional smell. I don't want my litter boxes to smell like pee but I'd also don't want them to smell like lilacs or a pine forest. Most brands smell like something peed in a pine forest." —Jason Tweed

    Price: $2.99

    18. An ab roller that comes with foam pads to protect your knees as you roll your way to a six-pack.


    Promising review: I started eating healthy, working out, and incorporating home ab workouts with the Ab Carver Pro. I've used it about three times per week for the past six weeks and I have noticed a drastic improvement in my core strength and ab definition. Now, I also do occasional ab workouts at the gym with other exercise routines, but this has been a great supplemental tool to work on my core. I would recommend to anyone...especially if you're tired of doing sit-ups!" —Scott

    Price: $35.19

    19. A mesh racerback workout top so you can sweat in style. This tank is perfect for all the exercises – yoga, running, Pilates – you name it, this top can handle it.

    It's made of lightweight heather-pattern fabric, so it won't show stains as easily as a solid-colored top. Nice!

    Promising review: "The fabric feels very comfortable to touch, there are no extra thread ends, it can't ball after being washed in the washing machine, and it will not deform. It won’t stick to your body if you sweat; it’s more breathable." —Sara

    Price: $12.79+ (available in women's sizes S—2XL and 21 colors)

    20. A set of blackout curtains, because you have a streetlight outside your bedroom and you're tired of your mom telling you that "exhausted isn't a good look on you" during FaceTime calls. These really do block out the light, so you can finally get your beauty sleep.

    tan curtains blocking lots of light from a reviewer's window, with the text "total eclipse of the light"

    And I need you now tonight

    And I need you more than ever

    If you'll block out all the liiiight

    I'll keep sleeping in forever

    I could even go to sleep at, like, five

    Because these blackout curtains are so great that they can block sunshine 

    I do know what I want and it's to be in the dark

    I'll be living in a cave and I will sleep like a rock

    You really need these tonight

    Good sleep is gonna start tonight

    Good sleep is gonna star tonight

    (with apologies to Bonnie Tyler)

    Promising review: "These curtains are the ish!!! I mean, they are wonderful, full blackout, decent and clean material, no weird smell, but the most important thing for me is that they do block the light. You can see the difference in the photo I uploaded." —MBPlover

    Price: $33.99+ (available in six sizes and eight colors)

    21. A bottle of Feed-N-Wax wood polish with almost 6,000 5-star reviews, to polish up all of your wood floors, doors, and furniture. In addition to polishing, it'll also condition the wood and help keep it from drying and fading.

    reviewer photo showing half of their floor looking completely new after applying the Feed-N-Wax to it

    The star ingredients here are beeswax and orange oil. "Feeding" is when you add content to the wood to help it maintain its shape and form — it's porous and prone to warping, after all. 

    Promising review: "Our home is old and the wood floors have little to no finish left on them. I saw this stuff in a BuzzFeed article of all places, and looked at the reviews and decided to give it a try on our floors. Just look at the difference! It's been about nine hours since I put it on and it's still looking shiny and dark. Definitely worth the money, time, and effort." —Brittany D

    Price: $12.63

    22. A bag of dried mealworms, which may sound gross to you, but reviewers say wild and domestic birds just love this stuff. They're great for reptiles too!

    A bird on a feeder with the product inside it

    Promising review: "Okay, dried mealworms does sound really gross. Last year, I ordered dried mealworms and ended up with bluebirds in my backyard on a regular basis. This bag's ten pounds does not sound like much until it arrives and it is as big as a 50-pound bag of oil sunflower seeds. I am getting bluebirds, house finches, Carolina whens, and the odd starling every day. I am putting out a measuring cup full of mealworms each day. The birds love it. This product consists of complete mealworms and not broken pieces. Our birds love them!" —Joe T.

    Price: $58.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $56.04)

    23. A printed summer dress that'll keep you feeling fresh and flirty all day long. Go boho chic or sleek and stylish with a wide selection of cute patterns and bold colors. Bonus, it's machine washable!

    reviewer wearing the knee length spotted halter dress in black and white

    A lot of reviewers like it because they feel comfy in it without a bra.

    Promising review: "This dress is so much fun! It makes me want to spin! You just feel so pretty in it. I love how the back has a little opening in it. It’s like having a sneak peek. The dress is lined so you can see through it. The material is light and airy. This dress is perfect to wear during summer or springtime. You can wear it with heels, wedges, or sandals. I would even wear some white tennis shoes with this to dress it down. The dress is incredibly comfortable to wear and perfect for almost any occasion. I would recommend." —Sabreezy Aint Easy

    Price: $30.99 (available in women's sizes S-XL and 14 colors and prints)

    24. A strainer that clips directly to your pot, because who wants to dirty up a whole colander every time they make just one bowl of pasta? No one. That’s who. This silicone pick is amazingly versatile, by the way. Reviewers say they use them for pasta (obv), but also for things like draining meat, because it's super easy to clean and sanitize. Plus it fits on pots and bowls in various sizes.

    Reviewer using the strainer in green

    Promising review: “I am so happy I purchased this strainer. I was really tired of trying to lure an unsuspecting (yet hungry) family member to hold the strainer so I didn't burn my hands or dump the pasta or vegetables into the sink. This strainer is a time and aggravation saver. It's kind of small, so I wasn't sure I would like it, but it even works on my large (eight quart and up) pots. I have some Revere pots with the rolled lid and a KitchenAid that flare out a bit. The strainer works great on both. I have used this several times and it has never slipped off. I usually cook one pound of pasta at a time and it holds up well. I like the flexibility of the strainer to work with varied sizes. The other good thing is that this hardly takes up any space at all. A worthwhile purchase!” —Jersey girl

    Price: $13.59+ (available in five colors)

    25. Or, a sturdy over-the-sink strainer, in case you have a (totally valid!) distrust things that use clips. This silicone strainer’s telescoping handles mean it’ll fit over sinks of all sizes, from the cute and compact to the expansively vast.

    the strainer in green and gray draining berries

    I've owned one of these and loved it! This bad boy expands up to 26" wide and folds flat, and you can pour boiling water into it right from the stove. The non-slip handles are a nice touch, and anyone as lazy as I am will love that it's dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: “Purchased this colander over a year ago and it’s held up wonderfully! We use it see several times a week to rinse fruits or veggies. We also drain hot pasta water once or twice a week. It fits perfectly in our sink without using the expanding handles. We've only used the expanding handles on a few occasions but they seem very sturdy. Love the collapsible feature, as it takes up so much less space in my cabinets! Purchased one after I saw a relative use this in a tiny kitchen. Every time I use this at a get-together, folks always want to know where I got it from and if I think it's worth it. Completely worth it!” —Cathie Weaver

    Price: $13.99 (available in three colors)

    26. A soft weighted exercise ball to use to strengthen and tone. They come in a variety of weights, so it's easy to graduate to the next one when you're ready.

    A reviewer squeezes a four-pound green ball

    Promising review: "I love these little guys for leg exercises. I got the idea from physical therapy as I have PPMS and am unable to maneuver as much. They are not a hard solid ball, but rather on the squishy side. Easy to work with on the inner thighs, help tighten up my core muscles and strength my back. They seem a little heavy, but you’ll get use to them. Very good material that appears it will last me a long time. I would buy again!" —Kimmers

    Price: $10.49+ (available in seven weights and two styles)

    27. A horse liniment cream that reduces joint pain and swelling in both humans and pets.

    A tube of the gel

    Promising review: "This product is the only one that has had any comforting feeling on my arthritis in my feet. I have a chronically swollen left ankle that I have tried every product out there on. Icy Hot is useless, Biofreeze doesn't work, and I spent $20 on a jar of Penetrex that was a huge waste of money. This veterinary formula penetrates my skin and gives a cooling effect on my ankles. I recommend this product and I will purchase it again and again." —Romance Girl 1963

    Price: $8.49

    28. A pair of boxing gloves sure to really help you ~hit~ your next boxing class., Amazon

    They have Velcro cuffs and mesh over your palms to keep your hands from getting sweaty.

    Promising review: "I don't honestly know if there are enough words to express how much I love these gloves! They are seriously the most comfortable gloves in the world. They have awesome quality and construction, these will last a long time. I went with the 10 oz. ones and it was the perfect match. They fit snugly with wraps on, which is exactly how I like them. I use these regularly both on the bag and in sparring matches and love them for both! Can't beat them!" —Ryan

    Price: $29.99 (available in five weights and eight colors)

    29. A Champion jersey muscle tank, because when you're working out, you won't want to restrict your arms. This super soft shirt has an athletic fit for comfort and a narrow collar for a modern touch., Amazon

    "Jersey" refers to the material, but you could wear this running at South Mountain or down the shore no problem.

    Promising review: "T-shirt bought specifically for training. Fabric is thin and soft, perfectly felt on the body, and excellent for warm weather." —Anton

    Price: $11.95+ (available in men's sizes S–2XL and 10 colors)

    30. A silicone utensil rest that’s big enough to hold up to ~four~ cooking tools at once. It's heat-resistant and also comes in a rainbow of colors, because what’s a kitchen these days without a pop of color to brighten things up?

    Reviewer's utensil rest in sky blue

    Promising review: “Finally! Functional spoon rests! I purchased two, and they are great. Big enough to hold all of my oversized baking accoutrements! I was wondering if they would fit the fat silicone mixing spoon handles, and they do! And the drippy batter jar from my immersion blender dripped all over the spoon rest instead of my counter! The silicone is hefty, as opposed to the rests I recently returned which were floppy and not well-made. Great addition to any kitchen! Throw in the dishwasher (top rack), and you are done! Well worth the money.” —BarbZ

    Price: $8.99+ (available in 18 colors)

    You ascending to a new plane of awesomeness, after those blackout curtains help you to finally get a full night's sleep:
