    Promising review: "I love this neck rest. My neck and shoulders feel so much better now that I use this product. I just love it. So much stress is held in my neck and shoulders.

    7. A super cute cold brew maker if you've been slogging through each morning, too tired to even attempt to make coffee. Just prepare this the night before, and voila! Your first cup of morning joe just got a whole lot easier.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've used a few other brands of cold-brew pitchers, and this is definitely the easiest one to clean of all the ones I've owned. I like the design, which fits well in my fridge. Obviously, the taste and quality of your coffee depend on the quality of the coffee you use, but with a good, coarse-ground coffee, the flavor turns out perfectly in this pitcher, and there is no need to measure the coffee; just fill the diffuser tube up to the top of the mesh, add the water, and give it 8+ hours to brew." —Miriam

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in six colors).

    8. A narrow, four-tier sliding organizer rack perfect for creating storage in the space between your fridge and countertop.

    Get it from Green City Living on Amazon for $13.50.

    10. An oil-absorbing face roller made using absorbent volcanic stone that'll soak up any excess oil. Instant matte skin FTW!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have super oily skin and am always looking for something to help control it during the day. The linen squares are good but you have to keep them around (aka keep replacing them) and they end up in the landfill. This little contraption really works and I just rinse it at the end of the day and start over again the next. I keep one in my desk and bought a second for my purse. This is magic for my shiny skin, especially on camera in my hours of Zoom everyday." —Jennifer Helseth

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

    11. A durable pull-up bar that'll fit perfectly in your doorway for the occasional (or heavily regimented) set of chin-ups on your way to the kitchen!

    My roommate has a pull-up bar installed in our hallway. It fits the bill for unobtrusive and sturdy. The foam grips help ensure comfort and proper positioning during your workout.

    Promising review: "Oh my god!!!! I have been training for more than 10 years, and this pull-up bar is the easiest to install, easiest to put away and the strongest portable bar I've ever used. Not to mention the ring in the middle for resistance bands. Love the fact that even the resistance bands have good strengthening pulling resistance for workouts. I love this product!!!" —Omar G

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in two styles).

    Promising review: "I thought this stuff was a bunch of BS, I was like pssh what a waste of $8. ESPECIALLY FOR THIS LITTLE THING. Well, I put it on today on spots where my flats rub off the skin, and my feet survived the 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.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These candles are fantastic! They smell great, and do a great job of eliminating any odors in your house, not only those from pets. They do work best if you burn them for one to two hours at a time, but will get rid of the smells of wet dog, fecal smells, urine odors, and I’ve even found them useful for cooking odors. I’ve had three candles now, and I highly recommend them." —Heather

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in 31 other scents).

    14. A surge protector with six pivoting heads because you shouldn't have to choose between keeping your laptop, phone, Echo, electric toothbrush (why is that in your living room btw?), or cordless vacuum alive. That's just inhumane.

    The surge protector
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Just got this and so far so good. I love that I can choose whether each plug is front-facing or turned to the side. It makes for great cord management. I also love that the design uses the TOP plug on the outlet. So many I found use the bottom plug and all those reviewers complain that the weight of the adapters/cords pull the thing out of the wall. Finally, I like the versatility of being able to screw it into the outlet center point if you need the additional stability, but also that you don't have to do that if you want something more easily removable." —Susan B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four formats and two colors).

    15. A hand-washing strainer and bucket kit for your non-washing-machine friendly pieces. Designed to fit in your sink, this super convenient set can also be used to wash toys and vegetables!

    Get it from The Grommet for $59.95 (available in three colors).

    amazon.com

    This purifier filters viruses, pollen, dust, pet dander, mold, bacteria, and more.

    Promising review: "Hands down the best purchase we may have made this year. While on vacation earlier last year we came down with the flu. It settled in our lungs and as we developed the dreaded dry honking cough. So why should you dish out this much money right now? We were sick for a month, but after letting this guy run for a full 24 hours, we were no longer sick or coughing whatsoever. The house felt like, clean, and I could breathe again.

    I can't believe I never had one of these before. I feel gross for not having one before. I feel like a full grown adult who just found out that not washing their hands leads to the spread of germs and makes people sick. If anyone in your house has allergies, asthma, pets, or is currently sick or coughing, then buy this right now. Like right this very moment! Everyone else, please just buy it as a courtesy to those who have to enter your home at some point. Or don't buy it and live a short disease ridden filthy life, you pig. its up to you." —Kate Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99+ (two options available).

    17. A desktop ring light you can also clamp to your laptop because your Zoom aesthetic deserves to be seen in its fully lit glory. It can also double as a desk lamp!

    Promising review: "This is an industrial-sized ring light. My husband is using it for his Zoom meetings and I plan on using it when I do online dance fitness classes. It is BIG. It’s powerful and bright, but the brightness can be adjusted. The clip fits nicely on our desk and on the actual desktop computer screen. It's very intuitive and easy to use, too." —STEPHENRH

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    18. A Dr. Brite Electric Sonic Toothbrush will have your mouth feeling professionally cleaned after every brush! Goodbye plaque and bad breath, hello savings!

    Taylor Steele/BuzzFeed, Dr. Brite

    The brush has four modes, shuts off at two minutes, and vibrates every 30 seconds to let you know you should move to another quadrant of your mouth.

    How have I gone my entire life without this? Really. I can't believe I've been relying on my own poorly choreographed circular and angular strokes. All of that is to say, I love this toothbrush. It uses advanced sonic technology offering four cleaning modes to choose from; personally, I like the gentleness of the gum care mode. My favorite thing about it, though, is that it operates in four 30-second intervals. At the end of each interval, it buzzes to inform you that it's time to move to another part of your mouth. Because who's really making sure they brush their teeth for exactly two minutes? And when you're done, you just place it back in its charging pod until the next time you need it. I can tell I'm getting such a deeper clean than I used to get with manual toothbrushes, and I can never go back. Plaque has met its match with Dr. Brite.

    Get it from Dr. Brite for $150 (originally $250).

    19. A Kindle Paperwhite if your stack of To Be Read books is far outpacing your Have Already Read books. And now, this waterproof Kindle comes with Audible, so you can listen to your favorite true crime books while lounging in the bath.

    To learn more, check out our Kindle Paperwhite review.

    Promising review: "This year, I am traveling to many different countries and have been reading more than I have ever been. I did not want to take physical books with me on trips for the obvious reason that it takes up space and weighs down my luggage. That’s when I decided to see about the kindle paper white. Man, am I pleasantly surprised by this device. It’s compact, portable, really minimizes glare, and the backlight is phenomenal for reading in different lighting. In fact, I can now read in the dark without keeping my husband awake with a reading light." —LinaRi

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four colors and with 8 GB or 32 GB of storage).

    20. An insulated, stainless-steel travel mug for keeping your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold as you go from home to work to the gym and back home. And this leakproof, double-insulated tumbler comes with straws to make life even easier.

    Promising review: "I drink a pot of coffee a day while at work. I refill my mug, and three hours later my coffee is still pretty close to the temperature it started at. The lid screws on and the opening clicks closed which has already prevented a couple of spills. It works better than I expected." —Tammy

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in three sizes and 23 colors/patterns).

    21. A cheerful linen oven mitt with heat-insulating padding so you can finally upgrade from the ones you've been using (ya know, the ones with burn marks and filling falling out) and cook in style.

    Amazon reviewers noted that this little buddy worked for their various hair types.

    Promising review: "Honestly, I was very skeptical. I've seen these brushes advertised to me on social media for like a year now. I thought, "Oh that is definitely a gimmick." So my sister bought one last week. I tried hers and fell in love after only the first use. I'm a man that's suffered from a dry, oily, patchy scalp as well as thin hair my entire life. As I used this, I could literally feels the bristles stimulating and cleaning my scalp. My hair is fuller, softer, and the flakiness is completely gone. I am now a firm believer of this product. Using your fingers don't even hold a candle to this brush. 10/10 would recommend!" —Timothy P

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in four colors).

    23. A luxurious spa bidet from Tushy whose adjustable water temperature and pressure means you can create the optimal experience for you. Believe me, you won't be able to go back to just regular ol' toilet paper ever again.

    Promising review: "When I put this harness on my dog I could not believe the difference! I couldn't believe it was the same dog! We went on a three mile walk and it was pleasurable! We met other dogs all along the walk as well as kids. There was minor pulling initially, but once he felt the tension he stopped. I was sold immediately!!! I wish that I had bought this thing a few months ago! I do not have any negative things to say about it whatsoever and would gladly buy this product again! If you have a dog that loves to pull, then this is what you need! My dog would lunge and pull and sometimes make me feel as if he was going to pull my arm out of its socket when he would see something that he wanted. This has solved almost all issues I had with walking him!" —Michael P

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in four sizes and twelve colors).

    25. A eucalyptus shower pouch for sinus and congestion relief that'll also make your bathroom feel like a rejuvenating spa. Each eucalyptus leaf was hand cut and then soaked in eucalyptus essential oil. Rejuvenation awaits!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE this roller. I have been using it for about two months and it still looks new. It is great to roll on but also good to lay on the length of it and stretch and work on shoulder range of motion and tension. I don't want to live without it again." —couchhound

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes).

    27. A pet hair remover so you can finally reclaim your couch from the mob of fur that started taking over. And because it doesn't use disposable adhesive strips, you can use this thing over and over and over and over and...

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "It might take a little effort getting all of the hair out of the compartment, but that’s okay with me because I’m seeing all the hair I just cleaned up! This thing is amazing, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has a dog or cat resulting in hair on your furniture and bedding. This may cost $25 but I used to use those sticky rollers to get the hair off my comforter, and that was costly over time. And it didn’t come close to what ChomChom does. It’s so easy to use and it picks up hair fast. It always amazes me how much hair it captures. It beats dragging out the vacuum as well. Yes yes I completely recommend this but watch the video for proper use. For me this has been a life changer." —meshell

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    28. A 12-inch over-the-door rack with eight adjustable tiers sure to help you organize your kitchen pantry or hall closet! You can even mount this accommodating organizer on the wall.

    Promising review: "I love this door organizer!!! I used command strip hooks (the ones with the metal hook but plastic back) to keep the organizer extra stable. I used the bottom shelf to store my plastic wrap, foil, wax paper, and more, so if you're not needing storage for these, you should be able to use all the shelves. This organizer has really helped alleviate my pantry clutter! I highly recommend this item!!!" —Super Momx2

    Get it from Amazon for $47.50.

    29. A stylish pair of leather wedges for a sunny stroll all around town. No, really! Because these shoes have orthopedic cushioning, you'll be able to be on your feet for hours.

    Need a little more height? Check out these wedges from Michael Kors!

    Get it from Amazon for $169 (available in women's sizes 5–11.5 and in three colors).

    30. A NutriBullet blender because you deserve easy early morning smoothies. It has no problems crushing ice, incorporating peanut butter, or smoothing out fine seeds.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love love love! I'm super glad I upgraded. I tend to go a tad above the max line, and my smoothies used to leak down into the actually blender base which became yucky, spotty, and impossible to clean completely. This one does not have that problem. The base of the blade attachment forms a covering over the stand, saving me from anymore mishaps. The blades are sharp enough to blend frozen fruits/veggies and nuts into a smooth drinkable consistency. I've even used it to grind coffee beans coarse (although please read the instructions before trying the same, not sure if that's recommended). Oh, best part is the lid! I can save what I don't consume or just keep it covered, so germs aren't landing into the mix, LOL. Buy it already." —charleia

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    31. Stick-on lights if you need to be able to go to the kitchen for your midnight snack without facing the harshness of your overhead light. Each strip has adhesive backing, so need to whip out the tool belt for this project.

    Includes a remote that can adjust the brightness.

    Promising review "This is a wonderful product; just what I wanted. Super easy to install and I love that it breaks off into sections so you don’t have any hanging over to hide. The remote is awesome and there are lots of brightness settings. I’m going to use these everywhere!" —Queen Halloween

    32. A bottle of Poo-Pourri toilet spray so when you go to do your business, it stays *your* business. Just spray a few times into the bowl before you go, and leave the bathroom smelling like a spa since Poo-Pourri is actually made of essential oils!

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these! To be honest, I didn't think that it was going to work at first. When I got it, I put it to the test the same day. To my surprise, my doubts evaporated into thin air (much like the smell of my poo). My husband came upstairs and instead of asking me why I didn't shut the bathroom door, he said 'wow. You're doing an amazing job of cleaning up here. It smells amazing.' I couldn't help but to giggle." —Zumba Mommy

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in 11 sizes and 19 scents).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don’t usually write product reviews, but I am now because this is one of the best household products I have ever bought. This Midea U-shaped AC is an ingenious design that is basically a split AC system mounted in a window, with the window closing almost all the way through the middle of the unit. The result is a much quieter and more efficient unit, with the noisy part that generates heat on the outside of the closed window. It also looks sleek and modern and the remote control and app are great. I have thought many times 'I wish someone would make a split AC system that can fit in a window without having to install separate units on the roof or wall,' and now they have!" —Ben

    34. A Simple Human drying rack that has a hanging rack for your wineglasses and a drip tray for everything else. This durable drying rack is made of stainless steel, so it won't rust on you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've owned this dish rack for over a year and can state unequivocally that this is the best dish rack in the history of man (how's that for drama?). It is easy to set up. While it sits on the counter, there is a pan beneath the rack that drains all water into the sink; it is just wonderful. You may pay a bit more, but you won't be disappointed in any way. There is even a rack for hanging your wine glasses to dry. The folks at simplehuman really do have their fingers on the pulse of the market." —TobiGail
