    1. A laptop stand because you've probably been WFH on the couch all year and your neck is paying for it. Okay, it's me. I've been doing it.

    The laptop stand with a laptop on top

    Promising review: "I am so glad I purchased this laptop stand. I am using it with my 15" MacBook Pro. The stand feels very strong and has a premium feel to it. Its color is very close to my Mac's own Space Gray finish, which is exactly what I was looking for. I have been relieved of so many neck cramps from always looking down at my screen while working long hours, especially during this quarantine. The stand features a nice rubber strip on the surface the laptop is to rest on, as well as on the front bumpers that keep it from sliding off. There are also rubber bumpers underneath the stand to protect your desk." —Kevin Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in nine colors).

    2. A massage ball to get deep into your muscles since you've been working out way more than ever with all these home workouts on Youtube. Those spikes will hit *every* point.

    Promising review: "This really helped when my plantar fasciitis was at its worst. I would massage my feet with arnica oil and then roll this under each foot for a few minutes along with stretches that my doctor gave me. For a while, I could barely walk in the morning. Pain is now GONE! I had tried a tennis ball for a while and it helped, but this was more effective. It may hurt a bit at first, but you will get used to it. You might try it with a sock if it feels too pokey." —Just me

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    3. A sweater stone that will remove pilling from sweaters, blankets, pillows, couches — you name it! You won't have to pick at every little ball on your cardigan anymore! You're so welcome.

    Promising review: "My fabric sofa has been a magnet for my two dogs' short hair. It was terrible to remove the hair, and I couldn't find any product to get rid of it — vacuuming didn't help, tape was hardly useful, and using a razor was slow and less than ideal. I dealt with an ugly, uncomfortable couch I'd try to avoid when we had visitors. The stone did the job perfectly! The abrasive surface of the Sweater Stone removed the hair (all of it!) and the pilling fabric right off the sofa, and my sofa looks practically new again. I really can't believe how well it worked." —Steve Luvender

    Get it from Amazon for $10.92.

    4. A car diffuser so you can make your car smell absolutely heavenly while also having an adorable piece of decor on your rearview mirror.

    Promising review: "Oh my word, these are amazing! My car smells so good every time we get in! I got the orange and cozy cabin. So adorable and easy to use!" —Dina Schmidt

    Get it from Amber and Wood Co on Etsy for $8 (available in 18 scents).

    5. A lip oil to soothe your dry lips *and* give them a healthy tint. Best part? It's vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and mineral-oil free!

    A person holding a lip gloss

    Promising review: "I can't remember who first told me about this lip oil, but it seemed like the perfect solution to my multi-year search of trying to find a lip product that enhanced my natural lip color while keeping my lips moisturized. It's not too sticky and lasts longer than a typical 'gloss.' It's a fairly small bottle, but that also makes it great to keep in a wristlet. The Appleberry is also sheer enough to pair over a lip crayon or lip liner. I'm really pleased with this lip oil and hope they continue to make it for a long time!" —Sami Cone

    Get it from Amazon for $12 (available in four scents).

    6. A faucet extender for those little hands that just can't quite reach the sink faucet yet. They'll get there, but for now...let's give 'em a hand.

    Promising review: "I love this product. I just had a baby and was struggling to pick up my toddler to wash his hands. I would have to pick him up and put his stomach against the counter. I couldn’t imagine that it was comfortable for him. These made handwashing easy and fun for him. I love that it’s a two-pack. I put the second one in the bath. My son loves when the water sprays out at him. I like these so much better than the characters you place over the faucet. Those characters get moldy and gross. These are super clean and I feel comfortable with using these with him!" —FamilyofLove

    Get it from Amazon for $9.15.

    7. An Away carry-on suitcase so beautiful, you'll feel like one of those Instagram influencers who take those pics where they look effortlessly stylish and refreshed. Meanwhile, I wear pajamas and look like death when I travel.

    The hard shell suitcases in multiple colors

    Promising review: "I’ve used my suitcase four times since I got it one month ago and I can’t recommend it enough! Wheels are super smooth, portable charger always comes in handy, I can fit all my clothes and it’s the perfect carry-on size! If you travel often (or even once or twice a year) invest in this suitcase, it is really worth it!" —Isabel H.

    Get it from Away for $225 (available in 11 colors).

    8. A dust cleaning gel that will get into all the nooks and crannies your regular cleaning tools just won't reach. Plus, it's just fun to touch.

    Promising review: "Great product! It works just like it states. It removed all of the gunk from my keyboard. I then took it out to my car and it took care of my vents and all the other hard-to-reach places that seem to collect gunk. Will buy again!" —Shawna K. Landers

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two colors).

    9. A two-tier storage basket organizer you can literally use anywhere in your home that needs organizing. Some customers used them for their refrigerators, closets, and even bathroom storage!

    Four containers in a fridge

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but these I felt I needed to. I absolutely love these. My refrigerator is side by side and I swear I never had any room in there. Everything felt like it was stacked on top of other things and it was such a pain to get to something in the back. Well not anymore. I have ordered three sets of these. I was able to place two of them side by side on the shelves. I kept two sets together and for the third set I just used the single container side by side instead of doubling up. I now have the most organized fridge ever. I can get to whatever I need without everything being taken put or stacking stuff on top of one another. They slide very easily and appear to be even more sturdy than I thought." —Kathy Klevis

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    10. A face cover hook you can attach to your car's vent so you never have to worry about forgetting your mask on your next drive-thru trip for Starbies.

    Promising review: "These are the best things ever! I’ve been using my rearview mirror to store my mask when driving, and these little babies are so much easier. Great product! Fast shipping!" —Jdmaddict051

    Get it from Archers Design Shop on Etsy for $4.50 (available in four colors).

    11. A folding board that will satisfy any perfectionist's desire to make their drawers and closet look beautifully organized. The Home Edit who? Marie Kondo who?

    A pile of folded T-Shirts

    Promising review: "My first reaction? "Why did I buy this?" Then I opened the box and wasn't too convinced about the way it looked, as some edges look like they would quickly snap with use. Then I gave it a try with a couple of shirts I had just washed and next thing you know I simply had to do my entire drawer! Everything folds so pretty, neat, and easy. I still couldn't believe it, so I ended up organizing our bedsheets and towels. I am amazed at how much of a game-changer this is. Must try! I am in love with how beautiful it left my clothes." —Jesus Antonio Vedia

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors).

    12. Fairy lights to *light* up your life wherever you need an extra bit of magic. You can put them on your ceilings, walls, or even windows and immediately make your room feel like the room of the main character in a coming-of-age indie movie.

    Promising review: " These are so stunning I may just leave them up all year! I bought three strands and would honestly buy more if I needed them. I tested the waterproofing and they are definitely waterproof! I love all the different settings and the way they make my patio look." —Brooklyn

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two styles).

    13. A suncatcher sticker for the person who constantly needs some Disney magic every time they look out their window. 🎶 And at last I seeeee the liiiight. 🎶

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this suncatcher! It’s so pretty and adds a bit of magic to my apartment. I can’t wait for it to actually be sunny here in Boston so I can enjoy the rainbows!" —Benjamin Swisher

    Get it from Wish Upon Magic on Etsy for $11.99.

    14. A book of birds to teach your little one (or yourself, I'm not here to judge) more about birds! The book includes some information about 12 different birds *and* their actual bird song!

    The book

    Promising review: "I got this for my 4-(almost 5-) year-old daughter and it instantly became her favorite book. She carries it with her outside most mornings and we just sit and listen to the birds in our yard and then we'll try and match the songs to a bird in the book. It's only been a week but she's already learned to recognize two different bird songs! In addition to the buttons that play the bird songs, each page has a paragraph about the bird, then goes on to list details about its size and color, what it eats, its nest, and its eggs. The adjacent page has a beautiful illustration of the corresponding bird." —Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    15. Round, retro-style sunglasses that'll protect your eyes while you soak up all the sun this summer. We need all the vitamin D we can get this year, am I right?

    A person wearing sunglasses

    Promising review: "These shades have become my new favorites! I love that I can put them on top of my head without my hair getting caught in them. They're a plastic frame but it's not flimsy or cheap made and they look really stylish. They can be worn with sporty or dress clothes as well. They blow out the sun but I am still able to see well, so I love them when I'm driving. They come with a soft cloth for cleaning and a carrying bag to prevent scratches. They fit well without sliding off if I bend over and they don't feel heavy on the bridge of my nose. I have to say that they look better in person than in the photo and I'm really happy with my purchase." —LadyTsotsos_Beauty

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two colors).

    16. A three-wick candle to quickly become the only candle you'll ever buy. Basically, anyone who smells this candle will immediately think of you. You ~are~ oud wood and musk.

    Promising review: "I seriously love this candle. It smells so nice! The jar feels amazing. It looks great on my dresser." —Amaris

    Get it from Target for $13.

    17. A cable cover that'll keep all those annoying cables behind your TV finally under control Bonus: these are a great way to protect your cords from any pesky little pets of yours that just *love* to nibble on them.

    Cables plugged to a power strip organized by a cable cover

    Promising review: "I feel silly raving about this, but it's SUCH a genius little product. I love that it comes in packs of four. I thought it was overkill, but I'm using three just for my TV setup! Not only does it organize the wires I have hanging from my tv shelf, but it also wrapped up a coax cable I have that's like, comically long. Like 20 feet of cable! I just coiled it up into a circle, about a foot in diameter, and zipped this doodad around to hold it all in place and keep it out of the way. I would purchase this again in a heartbeat if I had more cables to deal with. It is THE best cable organizer I've ever seen." —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98.

    18. A produce ball – it'll absorb ethylene gas to keep your produce fresher for way longer. Yes, that means that bag of lettuce in the drawer in your fridge can judge you for longer while you reach for that delicious leftover takeout.

    Produce balls in a drawer with apples

    Promising review: "These keep my produce fresher for much longer than normal. Nothing is worse than buying red bell peppers at the store and having them start wilting after four days. These should be in everyone's fridges!" —The Waites

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    19. Plush duckies so your pup has some new toys to play with, but honestly, they'll probably just cuddle them because they're so darn cute.

    A dog sleeping with a toy duck

    Promising review: "When we gave this to him today and reinforced that this was his a few times he quickly started carrying it with him everywhere he went in the house. Cutest was when he carried it upstairs to go to bed tonight then found him cuddling with it sleeping." —Runsonblackcoffee

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in two styles).

    20. A squalane face oil with vitamin C and rose to help brighten, firm, hydrate, and fight free radicals on your beautiful skin. Basically, get ready for that summer glow this year.


    Promising review: "Results in noticeably brighter skin and less pronounced wrinkles. You only use a few drops each night so it goes a long way. I have very sensitive skin and appreciate that this has very few ingredients." —Biossance Customer

    Get it from Biossance for $72.

    21. S'mores-flavored ChapSticks to not only have your lips feeling super moisturized, but they'll taste so good you won't be able to resist licking them off your lips.

    Reviewer holding the three Chapsticks in flavors marshmallow, graham cracker, and milk chocolate

    You'll get marshmallow, graham cracker, and milk chocolate.

    Promising review: "My mom and I love ChapStick, so I bought us each a pack of these. The marshmallow is clear, the chocolate is brown, and the graham cracker is tan. The color isn’t too extreme, but it will leave a little bit of tint on your lips. The flavors are DELICIOUS. Graham cracker reminds me of Golden Grahams cereal and chocolate is just perfect. I love the marshmallow best because it tastes slightly toasted." —Elle Ardee

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $2.73.

    22. A stain and odor eliminator that will dissolve even the toughest of stains off of any of your surfaces. We got you now, Mr. McTinkle.

    Promising review: "Worked better than we even anticipated. Buy a UV light to find all the pet messes - we had an undiscovered one that was so smelly it was making it impossible to relax in the living room. We found all the trouble areas and DOUSED them LIBERALLY with the product. Do as it says on the label - allowed it to dry overnight and vacuumed the area the next day. There is absolutely no smell whatsoever. I am so impressed with this product. Head and shoulders above other things on the market. Other sprays tend to be OK but need multiple, generous applications. This spray is hands-down better." —Greg Lindeman

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    23. A bookmark so you can keep track of what page you're on *and* all the books you're definitely going to read this year. Or next year...or the next. We'll get there.

    A bookmark

    Promising review: "This arrived on time and looked exactly as pictured, cuter even. It's slightly wider than most of my other bookmarks, which is good if you want to add your book titles to the blank books. My handwriting isn't super tiny, so I found it to be just the right size!" —Liisa Stover

    Get it from British Book Art on Etsy for $3.60.

    24. A rechargeable lighter so you never have to worry about using a regular old light or wasteful matches every time you want your home to smell lovely.

    The lighter on a candle wick

    Promising review: "If you're looking for an easy way to light candles, look no further. I've had this thing for a couple of months now and I've only had to charge it once! I got tired of using matches and regular lighters to light the candles around my apartment and was initially going to buy one of those elongated neck lighters with the trigger. Thank goodness I decided to go with this electric lighter instead. Easy to use, no gas or fuel required, and the battery lasts a long time. Also, it's super convenient to not have to tilt each candle in order to light it! Highly recommend it if you're looking for the easiest way to light candles!" —Dirk Diggler

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    25. Plant food spikes to ensure your plant babies are getting all the food and nutrients they need to grow big and strong. Now I just need one for me.

    A before and after picture of a potted plant

    Promising review: "I swear by these plant food spikes!!! The package says they are for indoor plants, but I actually use them for all of my outdoor plants, especially my herbs. I first tried these after planting some basil and other herbs that seemed to be taking an eternity to grow. I figured I'd give them a try since they were so inexpensive and wow!!!!! Within just a few days, my plants had grown more than double what they had grown in the previous several weeks!! One of my friends (who also enjoys gardening) came over to my house and was in awe of how big and healthy all of my herbs were. When I told her about these spikes, she went straight from my house to purchase some and had the exact same growth results." —GatorDO17

    Get a set of 24 from Amazon for $2.78 (available in two sizes).

    26. A sleep headband with headphones in it for all those sleep stories and white noises you love to hear before bed, but are tired of regular earbuds constantly falling out of your ear. Bonus: you can finally drown out your partner's snoring. Huzzah!

    A person wearing a headband

    Promising review: "I love love love these! I have been suffering from insomnia for over a year. Partly because my husband snores so loudly. I’ve tried regular earbuds, which fall out, sleep aids, you name it. Nothing else was working, so finally broke down and bought these. I’m so glad I did! Last night I wore these sleep headphones for the first time and fell asleep so fast! I put white noise on my amazon prime music and it completely drowned out the snoring! Definitely try these if you have trouble falling asleep. They were super comfy and easy to sync with my phone." —Julie Simbto

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in six colors).
