    1. 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.

    2. A TubShroom to catch your hair in the shower and prevent your drain from getting clogged up. The only thing required on your end is to take this baby out, wipe it, and put it back into the drain, so it can continue making your life easier.

    3. A windshield that'll shield your front windows from getting all snow-covered and frosty — because who the heck wants to stand out in the frigid cold and scrape ice off, while waiting on the de-froster to heat up. Not me, not you, not anyone.

    4. A lap desk table for those whose loyalty extends so far as to not wanting to leave their bed or their couch to eat a meal, or do work. Big mood, TBH.

    5. And while we're on the subject, there's zero reason why you shouldn't buy a bathtub caddy to enjoy binge-watching Netflix, drinking some coffee, eating a snack, all while having yourself a nice hot bubble bath.

    6. A rapid egg cooker that'll make your favorites, whether that's poached, boiled... or maybe scrambled eggs! Or how about an omelet?! You can pick whichever one you're feeling, but you don't have to stand over the stove waiting and waiting and waiting on your brekkie to cook. You're welcome.

    7. An iRobot Roomba so you can ditch vacuuming your own floors, and sit back on the couch while you watch your new best friend get busy.

    8. A color-changing LED night-light with an auto-turn on/shut-off function, so you never have to remember to turn off your nightlight when you're rushing to get out of the house in the morning, and you never have to remember to turn it on before hitting the hay at night.

    9. A six-pack of dishwasher cleaning tablets so the machine you rely on to clean the things you use to eat, isn't gunking them up even more.

    10. And on that same note, you may also wanna get a six-pack of washing machine cleaning tablets, because my guess is when you're doing laundry, you want your dirty clothes not coming out dirtier and smelling funky. Fair assumption?

    11. An Amazon Dash Button to give you the power to re-order your favorite, everyday items like toothpaste, energy bars, and more just by pushing a DANG BUTTON.

    12. A Nest Learning Thermostat that'll literally learn your temperature patterns and control the thermostat in your house accordingly throughout the day and night, plus it'll help lower energy bills, so you're not using too much AC or heat at times when it's not needed.

    13. A Keurig machine capable of making more than just coffee — this model allows coffee fanatics to enjoy things like lattes, cappuccinos, and even brew up concentrated coffee shots from their favorite K-Cups. Bye, Starbucks line!

    14. A deep kneading massager to use on your neck, back, shoulders, from anywhere. You can go ahead and call the masseuse you never had and tell them it's over, I'm sure they're gonna be very upset.

    15. An automatic pan stirrer with a timer that'll literally stir things you're cooking up over-the-stove like pasta sauces or eggs — give your hand a break, it's what it deserves.

    16. A bedside caddy to store things you don't feel like leaving the comfort of your bed to get — the remote, glasses, a book, maybe some snacks, IDK man, it's your life!

    17. An Echo smart speaker with Alexa for — sure, of course, playing music — but also like basically having an actual assistant in your home. You can ask Alexa questions, request the weather, find out sports scores, call a cab, etc. You have infinite possibilities.

    18. A Crock-Pot that'll allow you to put in your favorite ingredients, seal the lid, and let it slow cook them, so you can come home with a delicious meal at the end of day.

    19. A 12-pack of water bottle cleaning tablets so you can forget about having to use a brush and dish soap to get the gross smells out of your re-usable water bottle. Just drop one of these in with warm water, let it fizz for 15-30 minutes while you do something else, empty and rinse, and voila!

    20. A car sauce dip clip to ensure you always have a second pair of hands to hold your dipping sauces while driving — it's a very important part of the driving while eating chicken nuggets and/or french fries process, OK?!

    21. A KitchenAid stand mixer that'll put an end to you having to stir your own ingredients. Long gone are the days of tiring your arm out just because you wanted to make some freaking chocolate chip cookies. Plus, this thing will last you a v long time, so it's extremely worth the investment, promise.

    22. An AeroGarden for anyone who has ever thought like, maybe it would be kinda fun to grow some plants or herbs of their own, but then thought of the daily commitment it would require, laughed, and quickly let go of the dream.

    23. A shower cupholder so you can sit and relax in the bath with your favorite drink (alcoholic or not) without having to hold it with your own precious hands the entire time. Because... you're not a peasant.

    24. An Alexa-compatible microwave — because it's 2019 and the thought of having to physically get up from the couch to re-heat your food item sitting in your microwave is a daunting AF task when you can just ask Alexa to do it for you.

    25. A MakeUp Eraser for the easiest way to take off your makeup — no more scrubbing and wiping multiple times. Just wet the cloth with water, take a swipe or two and watch it work magic, for real, for real.

    26. A Sous Vide cooker to help you make restaurant-worthy meals with minimal effort. So minimal you don't even have to be in the kitchen while your food is cooking. I'm not kidding.

    27. An umbrella hat that'll prevent you from ever needing to hold your own umbrella. Now you can walk out of a coffee shop when it's rainy, holding your coffee with BOTH hands. Revolutionary.

    28. A vegetable chopper for those who wanna cook homemade meals, but are so daunted by the thought of prepping the ingredients, they're already ordering Seamless a fourth night in a row.

    29. A Ring video doorbell to see and respond to guests at your front door without needing to get up, or even be home for that matter. I mean, we've ditched talking on the phone for texting. Let's make 2019 the year we answer the door from our bedrooms instead of at the front door.

    30. A sectioned skillet so you can just cook your entire meal in one pan, over one stovetop. Why use multiple pans, and create more clean-up work for yourself, when you can just use one?! Whose idea was that in the first place?!
