    42 Products That’ll Just Help Make Your Life A Bit Better

    Who can say no to sidewalk chalk that looks like pizza?

    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 split decision pie pan to prevent you from having to choose between two yummy pie recipes, since now you can make BOTH! Or if you just want one pie recipe but know that making a whole pie will eventually go to waste, you can just make half of it!,

    The pan is made of heavy-weight aluminized steel, which allows for strong heat conduction and even baking. It also features non-stick coating for easy release. It's safe in temperatures of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and it's dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "I love cherry and he loves apple, but to make two pies would be such a waste since it's just the two of us at home, and buying store-bought pie just isn't the same. This was the perfect solution. I LOVE IT!" —Sherry S.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    2. A deck of affirmation cards that are a wonderful combination of funny, inspiring, and aesthetically pleasing to look at.

    Promising review: "These are silly and fun affirmations! I love that my older kids can enjoy them, but I think they would be also great for college kids and young adults who are looking for a little pick-me-up in a fun way!" —CO book lover!

    Promising review: "Without wanting to sound corny, this stuff changed my life. I've been using it for almost two years now and my very dry skin is symptom-free. It didn't cure me but not needing to apply moisturizer every day, not worrying about being in the shower at five degrees too high or for an extra minute — I don't worry about it anymore. I recognize the price on this is high enough to give most people sticker shock, but you really don't need very much as it lathers really nicely. I can milk a package of this for about five to seven months, and the refill bottle lasts about a year or longer." —K. Grotte

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    4. A cat butt coloring book that's equal parts hilarious and precious. I guess you can say it's the purr-fect coloring book.

    Promising review: "This book takes a funny idea and executes it well. The art is pretty, the text is funny, the paper is good quality. When it arrived and saw how nice it was, I bought a second copy for someone else." —Patrycja

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    5. A customizable face mask lanyard chain to help make mask-wearing a little more convenient and a lot more cute.

    Sun Stori / Etsy

    Sun Stori is a Black family-owned business selling gorgeous face mask chains, bracelets, necklaces, and personalized beaded accessories.

    Promising review: "I love how my item turned out! It is darling and will be perfect to wear in the classroom!" —Jenell

    Get it from Sun Stori on Etsy for $14 (available in various bead colors, two design options, and with or without personalization).

    6. A massage pillow for making you feel as if you have a personal masseuse. I mean like, it's NBD or anything.

    Promising review: "Wow! I've had it for an afternoon and I'm in love. I can't afford to keep going for human massages. *This* I can afford. I think I'm going to buy another one tomorrow so my wife and I don't fight over whose turn it is. Update a few days later: Okay, this many be getting out of hand! I purchased a second one for my wife last week (very smart thing to do). Today, she just asked me to buy two more, one for her daughter and her sister. I just placed the order. I'm using mine three of four 20 minute sessions a day. It continues to work great. Seriously, this is a wonderful product. Spread the word!" —Lynn Robert Carter

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    7. A bug bite suction tool to help get rid of itchy bites. Kinda rude that little buggies get to munch on our skin and blood and we have to deal with itchiness after.,

    This works by suctioning up insect venom, saliva, and other irritants under the skin, which in turn prevents your body from producing a reaction to said irritant.

    Promising review: "I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times — so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived on Monday and on Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm. I used this little tool (3x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite was gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    8. A wine aerator you can stick into the bottle of your favorite vino, making your next glass taste better just by simply...pouring it.


    I bought this for my mom as part of a Mother's Day gift, and I'll be honest, I've gotten a lot more use out of it. It's so easy to use, I didn't even have to glance at the instructions, and I mean come on, when you're in the mood to kick back and sip a glass of pinot at the end of a long day, who feels like reading a manual? Not I! You literally just twist the pourer onto the decanter, stick the decanter spout into the bottle, and then pour into your glass. It's cool because you can literally see the bubbles forming at the top from it being aerated. And I did a taste test to see if I could actually tell the difference, or if this was just a phony claim...and it works. It really, actually works. It uses an air intake system to ensure an optimal amount of oxygen!

    Promising review: "Purchased this as a gift for my mom. She opened it yesterday and we used it to aerate our wine for the rest of the day. Easy to use, and the wine tasted fantastic! We did a little taste test with non-aerated wine straight from the bottle vs. wine from the same bottle poured through this aerator and there was a noticeable difference. Can't beat it for the price." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    9. And before you go to taste your aerated wine, you'll want to stick in one of these wine wands to help filter out histamines and sulfates so you don't wake up the next morning with a headache.


    Wands are FDA-compliant and BPA-free!

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99.

    10. Earrings you can get customized with the letters and colors of your choosing. You can have them spell out something funny, something that speaks to your personality, your initials — the possibilities are endless!

    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.

    12. A one-line-a-day, five-year memory book that'll serve as a fun and sweet way to keep track of your thoughts, feelings, accomplishments, and obstacles.,

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review on this incredible journal!

    Promising review: "I've been writing in this little journal for three years now and already bought a second one just to make sure I can continue this wonderful habit into a new volume. The quality of this journal is excellent: The creators obviously put some thought into how much use it would be getting. I'm especially pleased with the paper. I tend to press really hard when I'm writing, but the ink doesn't show through on the other side at all. Highly recommended! Get a few, as you'll probably want to give some away." —StitchingLibrarian

    Get it from Amazon for $15.06.

    13. A winged eyeliner stamp so you don't have to waste time during your makeup routine trying to nail the perfect cat eye. Just stamp it on and voila!

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Read a BuzzFeeder's experience with this fabulous winged eyeliner stamp (#3).

    Promising review: "I just want to make my morning routine as easy as possible. I love winged liner, but I don’t have the steady hand for it without mistakes. This makes the perfect and consistent wing every time. Love it!." —Julie B

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    14. A weighted blanket to help you fall asleep quicker and stay asleep, because the best gift you can give yourself is the gift of a great night's sleep.

    a model with the weighted blanket wrapped around them

    The weight of the blanket you choose should be about 10% of your body weight plus one.

    Promising review: "Over the past few years I’ve developed terrible sleep habits and thought that was just how it was going to be. I ordered this when it came up on a sale, and it has completely changed my sleep habits. No more night terrors, flopping around, laying awake for hours, or wild dreams. I’ve been sleeping through the night since having this blanket. The blanket doesn't make me hot, instead it’s a cozy warmth." —Ryan Westmoreland

    Get it from Amazon for $52.90+ (available in various colors and sizes).

    15. A faux-fur blanket that you'll immediately want to wrap yourself in as if it's a tortilla and you're the contents of a warm burrito.

    Check out BuzzFeed's write-up of this extremely cozy Chanasya faux-fur blanket.

    Promising review: "I don't particularly like to write reviews for things but I will in this case. I love this throw, which is accurately described as 'super soft fuzzy.' And for the price? You can't beat it. Seriously, give it a go. I got mine in charcoal and it's nice looking, too. I live in a temperate climate but it does get chilly at night and this helps." —Lollygagging

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in 21 colors, and five sizes).

    16. An iRobot Roomba so you can delegate vacuuming your own floors to the robot while getting other, more important things crossed off your to-do list: AKA your 20th Bridgerton re-watch.


    Vacuum uses iAdapt 2.0 Navigation and vSLAM technology so the robot can map its surroundings around your home. It has a three-stage cleaning system that loosens, lifts, and suctions dirt, dust, and pet hair. It can clean under beds, sofas, and a variety of hard-to-reach areas. Its high-efficiency filter can catch about 99% of allergens, pollen, and dust. This vacuum can connect to Wi-Fi and works well on both carpets and hard floors.

    Promising review: "We ran this for the first time today. It really knows where it is. Covered our upstairs pretty thoroughly. It took a while to navigate around the dining room chairs. I will lift them up on the table next run and the process will be faster. It went under living room chairs and under our bed. It had to return back to home base to recharge about 3/4 of the way through. Never got lost, or caught on anything. The app is great, and it stayed in communication with our Wi-Fi just fine. We may buy another for our finished basement. Yes, we are really lazy." —Sandy Elliott

    Get it from Amazon for $423.90.

    17. An aromatherapy diffuser that'll allow you to breathe in the sweet smell of your favorite essential oil scents while feeling nice and relaxed.

    a reviewer photo of the aromatherapy diffuser

    It features an auto-off function — lasts for about 6–8 hours with a water tank capacity of 300 milliliters and then turns off automatically five seconds after the water runs out. It has four time-setting modes — one hour, three hours, six hours, and continuous — and two misting options. It also has seven LED light colors and two light options: dim and bright.

    Promising review: "Love this item. You can hear a small sound of water bubbling, but it's so faint that it's kind of relaxing. I have it in my bedroom and noticed, (and hopefully it continues), that I have a better night of sleep. I find this unit well worth the money." —The Beas

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in three colors).

    18. And while you're at it, you should add a variety pack of essential oils to your cart. You can use one at a time or make things interesting and create your own soothing combination.

    the box of the essential oils

    Promising review: "This is a great starter pack. The fragrance is not overpowering with a few drops and lasts. I didn't realize how much our sense of smell can affect our moods until using these oils. I sleep better with the lavender, and the citrus puts me in an energetic mood. The price is great and you get a variety of scents. The tops go on securely, so I can use some and then put them back in the box with no leaking. The lavender is very relaxing. I love how the box tells you what each oil does. I highly recommend these oils. If I could give 10 stars I would." —Sav

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $14.98.

    19. A personalized body wash from Function of Beauty that'll make shower time feel so much more luxurious.

    Function of Beauty

    I got to test out a free sample of Function of Beauty's body wash over the summer through BuzzFeed and instantly became a fan. There's just something about getting to customize your body wash down to the color and scent that's so fun. It's even more fun when you get to open your Function of Beauty package and see your name printed on the bottle, and a pack of stickers to decorate your bottle with. The body wash itself is gentle, and smells and looks pretty! I loved it so much, I bought a full-sized bottle once I ran out of my sample, and plan on being a return customer. In a year where a little extra self-care feels more important than ever, splurging on a personalized body wash has been a nice gift to myself.

    Get it from Function of Beauty for $19.99.

    20. An expanding accordion folder for neatly organizing your important papers, notes, and documents in one easy place! Plus, they come in fun colors and have a cute little smiley face printed on the front!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this folder to keep our family documents organized and in one place. There are just the right amount of tabs for our birth certificates, passports, social security cards, car titles, will, etc. This folder is small enough that you can lock it in a home safe or safety deposit box. I let a couple family members know where I keep this so that they can access it in case of an emergency. It is such a relief knowing that all these things are together and organized. I’m glad I bought this." —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 9 colors).

    21. A Harry Potter wand remote to make channel surfing feel like a magic trick.

    the wand remote in a wand-like box

    Operates with any IR device, including televisions, Blu-ray players, and speakers. You can program up to nine gestures. Requires two AAA batteries, which aren't included.

    Promising review: "Received this as a Christmas gift, and OH MY DARK LORD, I'M HOOKED! After a trial-and-error period, and a well-spoken Alohomora spell, (and handing it over to my 20-year-old son), we figured out how to program the commands. Surprise! No one had Confunded us — it was a matter of reading ALL the directions versus trying to 'Ron Weasley' the situation with random whacking motions towards the TV. (Seriously — I heard Hermione's voice: 'Stop! Stop! Stop! You're going to take someone's eye out! Besides, you're saying it wrong. It's LeviOsa, not LevioSA.') Now, with a Flourish (and Blotts) that would make Ollivander proud, voilà — my TV comes on, and with a Flitwick-approved 'Swish and Flick,' I've changed the channel. But wait, that's not all — with the twist of the Obliviate spell — volume up or down. Accio Happiness & Avada Kedavra old remote! I'm so happy I could... I could.. I could kiss Trevor!!! Well, a chocolate frog at least." —teemarie

    22. Non-stick toaster bags so when your next craving for a midnight grilled cheese hits, you can simply pop it in the toaster, no pans needed.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my elderly mom who loves grilled cheese sandwiches. I was skeptical that this bag on the toaster would work but it did! The only thing I would suggest is after you toast the sandwich, let it sit for a few minutes so the cheese melts better. I prepared it and gave it to her straight away. Bread was toasted on the outside. Clean up was easy. All in all impressive!" —Christopher Carnrick at Pirate Palms

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $7.99.

    23. Melatonin sleep gummies for those who dread the nightly struggle of trying to just fall asleep. Say adios to sleepless nights and hello to some help when it comes to waking up fresh and ready to tackle the day ahead.

    the jar of the sleep gummies

    I'm here to say that I have recently tried these, and I LOVE them. I have anxiety, and because of it, there are just some nights where getting my brain to calm down and stop overthinking every to-do list and human interaction I've had throughout my 25-year life is impossible. I'll take the recommended two gummies about 20 minutes before I know I'm ready to go to bed, go through my nighttime routine of washing my face and brushing my teeth, and by bedtime, I'm feeling relaxed and sleepy enough that I have a much easier time falling asleep and staying asleep. I also love the fact that I don't wake up feeling groggy or "hungover." I just wake up feeling refreshed. The gummies themselves taste like a mix of blackberry and mint, so it tastes a tad medicinal, but you get used to it! And be sure to check out out our write-up of these sleep gummies!

    Promising review: "I've tried other sleep products like the sleep drinks and other gummies but I keep coming back for these! They've worked the best out of any of the others I've tried! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for the whole night. I also wake up feeling great! No hangover feeling at all!" —Jaime Arnold

    24. A pumpkin spice simple syrup so you can enjoy the BEST (yes, the BEST) beverage flavor year-round, not just in the fall.

    Get it from Lynn&Gray on Etsy for $9.50+ (available in two sizes).

    25. A pair of touch screen gloves that'll allow you to still text your group chat about how cold it is outside, but at least your hands will stay warm!

    a reviewer wearing the gloves in the rose red color

    Promising review: "Absolutely in love with these gloves!!! Not only are they beautiful, but they work with all touch screens and are very comfortable! I’m usually forever cold but not this winter! Thank you for creating such perfect gloves." —Sage Gutierrez

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four styles, and sizes M—XL).

    26. An Echo Dot to basically serve as your own personal assistant of sorts. Do you wanna play music? Read the news? Find out what the weather outside is like? All you have to do is ask this handy device those things and SO much more.

    the gray echo dot

    This allows you to stream songs from Amazon Music, Apple Music (coming soon), Spotify, Sirius XM, and more. You can also ask Alexa to play music, answer questions, read the news, check the weather, set alarms, control compatible smart home devices, and more! You can call and message almost anyone hands-free and drop in on other rooms to make announcements with compatible devices.

    Promising review: "I've waited for a smart home speaker for some time because I wasn't sure which one I should get, since there are a few to consider. I chose the Echo Dot for a few reasons. It has a ton of support for smart devices and they have many app skills to pick from. The sound quality is great! I was really surprised by how much sound comes from this little device. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids, and I am very pleased with the sound. I am having a great time connecting it to some of my devices like my Xbox One, Bluetooth headsets, and speaker system. I plan on ordering more smart plugs to control my lamps and fan for starters, and may look into an Alexa-controlled smart TV. All I can say is that Amazon has really made a great upgrade to the previous versions. It was part of the reasons why I picked this one. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a small smart speaker with the ability to control devices, and a great assistant." —Phantom Phreak

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four colors).

    27. A cold brew coffee maker that'll help you whip up a delicious iced coffee treat — pro tip: do it the night before so it has time to chill while you're asleep, and all you have to do in the morning is pour and enjoy.

    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 non-slip 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 $15.99 (available in three colors).

    28. An anti-blister balm to apply before putting on your shoes so you can prevent those painful annoyances from even trying to happen.

    This is made of allergen-free, plant-derived ingredients, and infused with Vitamins A and C!

    Promising review: "I thought this stuff was a bunch of BS, I was like 'pssh what a waste of $8 ON AMAZON FOR THIS LITTLE THING.' Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub on my skin. My feet survived an entire day, INTACT! Highly recommend. This product made wearing shoes that rub on your ankles/backs of your feet doable!" —Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $8.

    29. Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser – a conditioning face wash that'll feel nice and gentle on ultra-sensitive skin, but contains the same cleaning agents found in contact lens solution so it's powerful in its abilities.

    Ayseha Mittal / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    This can either be used on dry skin to help dissolve makeup, or on wet skin to start your day. It's made of five skin conditioners to help leave your face feeling soft. It's hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, claims to be good for all skin types, noncomedogenic, cruelty-free, vegan, and soap-, paraben-, and sulfate-free. Check out our review of the amazing Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (#2).

    I have extremely sensitive skin, and back in fall 2019 I experienced a sudden onset of cystic acne all over my face, went on birth control for it in December, and now six months later, my skin is completely clear and I'm finally wanting to try all of these skincare products I was too scared to use. As someone who was using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for YEARS, I was nervous to make the switch to Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, and full expected I'd try it once and have to retire it.

    Quite the opposite actually. This cleanser is truly SO gentle. Rather than leaving my skin feeling hot and irritated like some skincare products do, this leaves my skin with a cooling sensation and I actually really look forward to washing my face in the morning and at night, rather than dread it. I haven't worn makeup much lately, but the few times I have since buying this cleanser, it's done an excellent job of removing my makeup, and I can go to sleep with peace of mind that my pores aren't clogged up.

    Get it from Glossier for $9+ (available in two sizes).

    30. Bed sheet clips so you can ensure your sheets actually stay in place, no matter how all over the place you are in your sleep.

    one of the bed sheet clips securing a bed sheet

    Promising review: "My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. Bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing! A tip for putting them on: lay the fitted sheet on top of the bed with the corners inside out (flipped up, off the mattress). Then attach these bands to each of the corners and tighten the bands. Once they are all clamped and tightened, THEN flip the corners onto the mattress. We have a pillow top 10" thick king mattress and this is the best method to get these on. Hope that helps!" —LindseyB

    31. A sloth planner and notepad that's super adorable, and unlike the nature of these slow-moving cute creatures, will help make it easier to stay on track and get through your to-do list quicker.

    BuzzFeed / Emma McAnaw

    Promising review: "I got this notepad as a gift for my sloth-crazed friend. Usually anything sloth-themed is a hit with her, but this note sheet was an absolute win. She loved it. First of all, the sheets are cute as heck. There is a place to rate your sloth mood, every header is a pun, and the design is tasteful. Second, it is organized in a way that makes sense. It separates errands from short tasks and more. Third, the paper is quality. If you are on the fence, this product is perfect." —Allie Schultz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

    32. Sidewalk chalk resembling PIZZA (YEAH...I KNOW!!!) to leave you wondering, "why didn't I have sidewalk chalk like this as a child?" Trust me, I understand. Hey, we've found it now, that's what's important!

    33. An Instant Pot ready to be your personal chef. It can whip up a wide variety of foods like slow-cooked meals, rice, steamed vegetables, and more. Just dump everything in the pot, press a button or two, and walk away.

    Combines six kitchen appliances in one — pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté, steamer, and warmer. It can prepare food up to 70% faster than other gadgets/appliances. It can keep food warm automatically for up to 10 hours, and there are three temperatures for sauté and slow-cook. The inner cooking pot, lid, and steam rack are dishwasher-safe! Check out our review of the incredible Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "This is probably the only kitchen appliance I've ever bought that has earned permanent status on my kitchen counter. I use it at least three times a week. It's particularly perfect for vegans and WFPB-eaters. I can cook beans and grains from scratch in no time! Such a wonderful investment. I liked it so much that I got one for each of my sisters for the holidays. Best. Thing. Ever." —cynthia w. rogers

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 19 styles).

    35. Wonder Hangers to help you group certain garments together, which in turn makes it easier to find that shirt you know you own but can't seem to find no matter how many times you look.


    It comes with 10 hangers that can hold five garments each, 10 if you double them up!

    Promising review: "I use these hangers for shirts and tees. They allow me to easily find any shirt in my closet and take up very little space compared to single shirts on single hangers. I can also group shirts together by style or color on a single swivel hanger. I am now able to hang additional items in my closet without crowding. I bought this in white and the edges are smooth." —CAGH

    36. The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook that will basically be your ticket on the Hogwarts Express because it'll help you make all the meals you've read about in the books.


    Some notable recipes include treacle tart, Molly's meat pies, and Kreacher's French onion soup. Pictured right: pumpkin pasties.

    Promising review: "I LOVE IT, I'm no master chef, but this cookbook might change that. I might even become a master wizard chef! Anyways the recipes are phenomenal, especially the pies! It's pretty basic sometimes, it's more European-type cuisine, so if you don't like haggis, liver, lamb, or other English/Scottish dishes, etc., then these recipes aren't for you. The book references are cute, and I vaguely remember some of them. My younger siblings go crazy when I make anything from this book because they love Harry Potter." —Tigerlily
