    3. A Snuggle Puppy that's basically a miracle solution to helping ease your pup's loneliness and separation anxiety — it's especially perfect for those crate-training their furry bbs.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Back in June, my family made the wonderful decision to add a puppy to our family. Bailey was just shy of turning 2 months when we first brought him home, and we decided to crate train him to help prevent accidents during the day and night until he'd become house-trained. The first night home he slept like a DREAM, and we were certain we had hit the jackpot... until the second night when he cried loudly for six consecutive hours even when we'd come downstairs to try and calm him down. Thanks to advice from the internet and family friends, we quickly purchased the Snuggle Puppy kit, and it immediately helped to calm him down (picture on the left of him sleeping next to it at 2 months old). To use it, you take this little red heart beat-like ticker, turn it on, and put it inside of the toy, Velcro it shut, and it's meant to make your pup feel as if they're not alone inside the crate. He started sleeping through the night, was more relaxed during the day, and it made everyone in the house feel so much more relieved. It blew our expectations out of the water.

    Bailey is 4 months now and no longer sleeps in his crate because he's house-trained. He also doesn't snuggle up to the puppy for comfort like he did when we first bought it for him, but he LOVES playing with the puppy, as well as the other toys and the blanket that come with the kit. It's basically his new favorite chew/fetch toy (picture on the right of him, at almost four months old, chewing it), which obviously wasn't the intention, but my dog is SO happy when he has his Snuggle Puppy by his side. The price tag for the kit is definitely more than we wanted to spend on something we weren't sure would work, but I can fully attest two months later that it was the absolute best purchase we made for him! If you're considering getting a puppy, or your sanity is running low from a new puppy who suffers from separation anxiety or won't stop crying, I highly recommend getting this!

    Get it from Amazon: the Snuggle Puppy for $39.95 (available in four colors), or the Snuggle Puppy kit for $69.99 (available in three colors).

    4. An SPF50+ tattoo stick to help hydrate and protect your tattoos from sweat and water, without giving your skin a greasy, oily feel like other SPFs can.

    INK the original, Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    This is 100% vegan and cruelty-free as well as free of parabens, sulfates, silicones, and petroleum.

    Promising review: "There — and I cannot stress this enough — are VERY little skincare products out there made specifically for tattoos, so this INK sunscreen stick (and their entire collection) is an actual godsend. I regularly use their tattoo brightener and it's like food for my tattoos: It's nourishing, hydrating, and my tattoos truly look like they were just inked — especially my hummingbird (pictured) that features fine lines." —Kayla Suazo, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from INK the original for $16.95.

    5. An air fryer for turning all of your favorite foods into deliciously crispy versions, minus all the oil! Chicken tenders and french fries for dinner every night? Yes, please.,

The auto-shutoff feature will help prevent overcooking, and the cool-touch handle means no hand burns when pulling your food out. Comes with a recipe book for inspo! And if you need further convincing, check out a BuzzFeeder's review (#1) here.

    Promising review: "This little gem does exactly what you want it to do. Mozzarella sticks, wings, pizza snacks come out perfectly. Takes a little while to find out just how long to do each snack, but once you get used to it, just perfect. Not for large amounts, but for one or two people it's great. Takes up very little space." —Swimmer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in five colors).

    6. A clear panel nonmedical face mask that won't fog up when talking. This means other people can more clearly read your lips and expressions, while keeping you and others protected.

    7. A pair of seamless rib bike shorts for a buttery soft addition to your daily routine whether that means your WFH wardrobe, your workout ensemble, or just your comfy lounging around outfit.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Free People

    Promising review: "These shorts come in a bazillion rotating colors because they sell out so quickly you might blink and miss them. I own a pair in pink (that is me being v cheeky above) and can confirm that they are so comfortable that I genuinely had to look down and make sure I wasn't naked a few times, but still opaque enough to venture out into the world without worrying about everyone seeing your booty. I probably own 10 pairs of bike shorts now (don't look at me), and these are the comfiest by far." —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get them from Free People for $20 (available in 12 colors, and sizes XS/S—M/L).

    @lorealparis / Via, @lorealparis / Via

    It's recommended to use this two to three times a week on wet hair after you use shampoo —you can use one dose on fine/medium textured hair and two to three doses on thick/curly textured hair, plus another dose on long hair. You can also use conditioner after if you'd like. Avoid applying to the scalp, and only apply to lengths!

    Promising review: "i have very thin, dry, and damaged hair due constantly dying it blonde. I’ve tried so many hair products and different types of shampoo and conditioners, and nothing seems to really help my hair. BUT this stuff literally is magic. I’ve used it three times and I haven’t seen my hair look this good (shiny, healthy, hydrated)." —Nikki Minnis

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    9. A freezer cup to transform nonfrozen drinks into slushies, smoothies, and shakes in a matter of minutes. All you have to do is pour!

    Just freeze the inner core for eight hours or more before enjoying your drinks! Recommended to hand wash with warm water!

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product. It makes awesome slushies, is easy to clean, and a great product for the hot Florida summers. During the summer I use it nearly every day. I've used it with coffee and cream, juice, peach sweet tea, and soda. I haven't found anything that doesn't work with this product! I've tried just about every slushy maker out there, and this is absolutely the best one!" —Thesillybanana

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in four colors).

    Get it from Moon Juice for $32.

    11. An inspirational notebook with phrases like "Pre Millionaire" and "Goal Getter" on the covers to help keep you motivated and organized as you take on this world like the rock star we know you are.

    The marshmallows — classic marshmallows with chocolate filling and chocolate marshmallows with chocolate filling

    Promising review: "A friend had come across these once when they had gone camping for making smores. I thought that they would be great for our 'camping' that we have done during our lockdowns. They make the smores making experience so much easier. I love how the chocolate gets all warm too.

    I have been brave and even tried some of their recipes for other uses for the marshmallows like making hot chocolate for the chocolate/chocolate ones. Super yummy, just make sure to cut them in half and that your milk is very warm before adding them." —MG.

    Get both flavors (a pack of two) from Amazon for $16.99.

    13. A super cute bookmark to reach for instead of a random piece of paper, receipt, writing utensil, or whatever else you normally use. Plus, it's punny!

    The bookmark saving a page in an open book
    Spicy Apricots / Etsy

    Promising review: "Such a sweet little bookmark. Very nicely done and I like that both sides of the bookmark have a design. You get both the front and back of the bee, which is really a neat idea." —patti5037

    Get it from Spicy Apricots on Etsy for $2.71.

    14. And of course, you're gonna need a good book for that bookmark, and one of my personal favorites I delved into this quarantine is The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Listen... I finished reading it a few weeks ago and I already want to re-read it over and over again.

    The cover of the book

    If you're looking for more great reads, some other wonderful books I've read so far this quarantine that I highly recommend: White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo, Naturally Tan by Tan France, Normal People by Sally Rooney, Untamed by Glennon Doyle, and Over The Top by Jonathan Van Ness (just to name a few).

    I don't want to give away anything from this book, because I had zero idea what to expect upon starting it. All I knew was that my friends LOVED it and had been recommending I read it for a while. It's very rare that I make it through a book as quickly as I made it through this one. I literally finished it within 48 hours and now I'm just wondering when is an acceptable time to re-read it again. I HIGHLY recommend it!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.24/paperback, Bookshop for $15.64/paperback, or Barnes & Noble for $14.99/paperback.

    15. An adorable tee that might make you wish there was such a thing as a Pizzasaurus, because imagine how great it would be seeing dinosaurs with pizza around their heads just strolling along?

    Get it from ModCloth for $29 (available in sizes S—XL).

    16. Warby Parker glasses for the trendiest pair of prescription glasses you'll ever own. Plus, for those who are indecisive, their at-home try on program is THE BEST.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    I started wearing glasses regularly a few years ago when I found out the reason I was experiencing migraines and eye strain almost every single day for two months was because of astigmatism and nearsightedness. Knowing that glasses would now become a part of my daily life, I wanted to be sure I bought a pair that I felt cute in, but I am SO INDECISIVE. That is where Warby Parker comes in.

    Their at-home try on program is FREE. You get to pick five frames you love, and they send them to you within a few days. You then have about a week to try them on, take pictures with them, consult your family and friends for their thoughts, and they provide a free shipping label for sending them back. You can do this more than once! You just can't order a pair of glasses until your at-home try on has been return.

    When it's time to order, you can either upload your prescription (this is the quickest option!), or Warby Parker can call your eye doctor for you. You can also choose between various add-ons. For example, because I stare at a laptop screen most of the day, my glasses contain blue-light filtering to help lessen the strain on my eyes. I now own THREE pairs of glasses from Warby Parker, and I can honestly say that thanks to their excellent customer service and trendy frames, I will be a customer for life.

    P.S. — If you have vision insurance and they help to cover the cost of glasses, Warby Parker can provide you with an insurance reimbursement form after you order!

    Get them from Warby Parker: the Laurel in Tea Rose Fade (left) starting at $95, or the Eugene in Rosewood Tortoise (right) starting at $95, and be sure to check out all of the fabulous styles Warby Parker has to offer!

    17. Heeled Chelsea boots that'll make a great addition to your favorite autumn looks. Just don't forget to accessorize with a pumpkin-flavored beverage in hand.


    Promising review: "These boots are comfortable and chic. I would recommend them to anyone. It did take me a day or two to break them in but the instructions on the website help (I wore them around the house before taking them outside)." —Elyssa S.

    Get them from Nisolo for $230 (available in three colors, and sizes 6—10).

    18. An acne drying treatment to simply apply to pimples, and then just sit back, relax, and let it work its magic!

    Promising review: "I've never used a more effective overnight treatment — I put a visible layer over any budding pimples before bed, and usually by morning they're calmed and quelled." —Rachel Dunkel, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Versed for $16.99.

    19. Mini spin hair pins that'll make putting your hair up in a flawless bun super easy. Just one of these little pins can do the work of 20 bobby pins!!! I, for one, do not want to clip 20 bobby pins in my hair.

    Promising review: "I'm a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I've tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I'd have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid-back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me...anyone can." —Tina

    Get a pack of two or three from Amazon for $7.29.

    20. A wearable nail polish holder so you can easily give yourself a fresh mani anywhere at home, minus the risk of spilling. Suddenly painting my nails a dark color while sitting on a white couch feels like a beautiful possibility.

    Be sure to check out our write-up of the wonderful tweexy wearable nail polish holder!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish, so that it would be in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me, or felt comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining your paint job. Just one tip: move the holder to your pointer finger when doing your thumb." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 13 colors).

    21. And a Stedi Pedi, because the only thing harder than painting your own nails is painting your own toes, but now, the daunting task might actually be!

    22. A cold brew coffee maker that'll have you powering through your day with a delicious iced coffee treat.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    It yields about four servings of delicious coffee, features an airtight, leak-proof lid that helps to lock in freshness and flavor, a nonslip silicone handle, and fits in most refrigerator doors. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. Need more convincing on this amazing coffeemaker? Check out our review of the fabulous Takeya Cold Brew Coffee Maker.

    Promising review: "Delicious iced coffee! Don’t be fooled by getting an iced coffee at Starbucks and paying almost four bucks. For less than a dollar, you can brew your own cold brew coffee at home. The best part is that cold brew has 60 percent less acid then regular coffee does. So go ahead, acid reflux sufferers: Have that second cup! I used some gourmet beans from a local coffee roaster for $15 and ground them myself. The coffee was far better than Starbucks could ever dream of making. Best of all I get three days worth of coffee for around $2 worth of beans. Pretty amazing." —Robert Klaproth

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

    23. A car dip clip so you can drive WHILE dipping your nugs and fries, because it's important to drive safe WHILE enjoying ketchup.

    Promising review: "Very useful! I love that the cup is removable so if you have one of those giant Chick-fil-A ketchup cups, it can sit within the holder without the added cup, but a smaller sauce like from Wendy’s can sit inside the additional cup so it won’t fall through." —catherine

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.99 (available in three colors).

    24. A whipped shower icing that come in a variety of yummy scents that'll leave your body feeling clean and moisturized after you shower.

    Get it from Aerie for $34.96 (available in 10 styles, and sizes 2XS—2XL).

    26. Glossier Cloud Paint — a gel-cream brush you can effortlessly work onto your cheeks for a naturally glow-y look.


    Plus, it's cruelty-free! Check out what some of my colleagues had to say about the fabulous Glossier Cloud Paint!

    Promising review: "There’s a very special feeling that comes with finding a high-quality, long-lasting, and effective makeup product. And as someone who *loves* makeup and tries something new weekly, that feeling has become few and far between — untiiiiil I got my hands on Glossier’s Cloud Paint blush. It’s a gel-cream blush that not only delivers incredible hydration to my cheeks, but some gorgeous, natural-looking color.

    I’ve been using the color ‘Dusk’ (a brownish nude) and it leaves behind the most flattering pinkish tint to my cheeks while still looking natural. And because of its super lightweight formula, it’s easy to build from a soft flush to a stronger contoured look. This is one of those products that’s easy to use but packs a serious punch to your makeup, and basically what I am saying here is, this stuff is going to be a forever staple in my makeup bag." —Kayla Suazo, BuzzFeed Editor

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

    27. A water bottle that'll make it easy and most importantly, FUN, to keep track of your water intake so you stay hydrated all summer long.

    Samantha Wieder / BuzzFeed

    Plus, it's dishwasher-safe!

    I own this wonderful water bottle, and I swear it's the only reason I'm good at keeping up with my water intake now. It comes with eight colorful rubber bands, and each time I finish the bottle, I take a rubber band off and wear it on my wrist. It's actually so rewarding getting to take a band off, and even more rewarding once you take the last band off. I've tried setting alarms on my phone, buying bigger water bottles, using the Plant Nanny app — this is the only thing that has worked for me. (Look — even my dog approves of it!)

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    28. A "Nevertheless, She Persisted" puzzle for an activity that'll be entertaining, educational, and inspirational to piece together.

    Promising review: "Love love love these books! I have placed two orders now: one for navy and one for black with gold text. Both are exactly what I was looking for! They are perfect for decor or reading! The seller was amazing to work with and shipped my order super quickly. I will definitely be buying more!" —Lauren M.
