    1. A set of bedsheet suspenders so you don't have to waste time remaking your bed every single morning. Never be penalized for tossing and turning again!

    Promising review: "Say goodbye to re arranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these bed bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I had bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

    Get four bands from Amazon for $12.99 (available in four pack sizes and three colors).

    2. A grooming glove that'll help get all your pet's excess hair before it covers your couch in a full layer of fur. That's just not the throw blanket you were hoping for.

    a series of images showing pet hair on the glove

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming. This dog grooming glove is the right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away, leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    Get each glove from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors).

    Check out my coworker's review of this hair-removing glove here (#19).

    3. A bottle of earwax removal drops if wax buildup is keeping you from hearing the falsetto in Happier Than Ever.,

    Promising review: "My right ear was totally plugged so I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one doctors usually tell patients to get. I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water and OH MY GOSH...the gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works." —CD

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98.

    4. A pair of ergonomically designed oversized leaf scoops to make one of fall's most annoying chores a lot easier.


    Promising review: "These scoops are FANTASTIC. They turned a rather physically daunting chore into a much easier one, not to mention we spend literally less than half of the time that we normally have spent gathering up all these leaves and acorns. We are going to purchase another pair for NEXT season!! Wonderful ingenious tool! A must-have for raking chores!" —JMB

    Get them from Amazon for $26.95.

    5. An eyeliner stamp for a purrfect cat eye without all that time-consuming trial and error. This smudge- and waterproof eyeliner will have you looking fierce all day long!,

    This includes two waterproof and smudge-resistant stamps (one for each eye) with an eyeliner pen on the opposite end for any sharp lines or touchups.

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am as shaky as shaky gets when it comes to putting eyeliner on. This is a miracle sent from above! It honestly is the most amazing eye makeup product I own at the moment. It is as easy as it sounds." —Heather Leigh

    Get two stamps from Amazon for $11.97 (available in two sizes).

    6. Pura D'or anti-thinning shampoo — formulated with biotin and 17 volume-increasing herbal ingredients, this shampoo will help you grow your mane out.,

    Promising review: "After giving birth to my second daughter, I started losing hair and it was not growing back. I started using this shampoo (though, I did think it was expensive) because the reviews were great. I am on my third bottle and I can say that not only did my hair stop falling, but I also now have new hairs growing! Best shampoo ever!" —penman

    Get a 16-ounce bottle from Amazon for $29.99.

    7. A pack of nontoxic moth traps because the alternative (watching them all live out Icarus's tragedy) is just a little too dramatique. Even for you. These traps have pheromones that attract moths, so all you have to do is lay them out, and let them do the work.

    a sequence of images showing the collection of moths over time

    Promising review: "When I say these work fast, I mean it. I got these in hopes of killing my pantry moth problem once and for all. As soon as I set these traps out a SWARM of moths came out from who knows where. I felt like I was in The Birds it was that intense. After my momentary panic I was shocked to find that the moths went straight to the traps and got themselves stuck and within a few hours the kitchen was eerily free of moths. Don’t let the price scare you, this stuff works and works well!" —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $16.97+ (available in two colors).

    8. A silicone freezing tray if you're tired of wasting potential leftovers. Just pour your sauce, stew, or smoothie in this tray to easily access it for your next meal.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention since sliced bread! How many times have you thrown out soup that you forgot about in your fridge??? Well, say goodbye to spoiled soup! Finally, a way to store measured quantities of broth, but I love to use mine for soup and...wait for it...SMOOTHIES! These cubes are the best for freezing measured quantities of smoothies, simply throw one in the Vitamix, and boom! You have a fresh, already icy-cold smoothie for breakfast or a snack! For anyone with limited freezer space which, let's face it, is most of us, this is a real gem. I was a bit worried about how easily the cubes would slide out, but no problems at all! The best part is how easy the cubes store in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag so you can reuse the cubes. AND they are dishwasher safe??? Souper Cubes, why did you take so long to come into my life!??! I can't wait until the holiday season so I can gift these as stocking stuffers — to anyone I know, you now know your gift." —Texas Sunshine

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    9. A pack of four silicone ring adjusters that'll comfortably allow you to wear pieces that are up to 1.5 sizes too big.

    three images that show how the ring adjuster made the ring smaller and fit perfectly

    Promising review: "I have skinny fingers with wide knuckles. I cannot take my engagement ring down even a half size — or else it won’t fit over the bone. After purchasing these very comfortable, very durable size adjusters, I had to order another pack! I never want to be without these! The coil adjusters are easy to put on the ring (it might take a minute to get the coil around the ring but you’ll get the hang of it) and the coils don’t come off unless you undo them manually — which is VERY easy to do. It doesn’t damage the ring, either. Thank you so much, whoever patented this! It’s a lifesaver! I also think it’s great because it prevents the back of the ring from getting scratched when you wear it." —Dee

    Get four from Amazon for $5.99.

    10. An AeroGarden so you can easily grow your own herbs indoors! The control panel will tell you when it's time to water or feed your plants, so you don't have to worry about not having a green thumb.

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend's sister-in-law who lamented not having a green thumb. In the two months that the sis-in-law has had the AeroGarden, the growth has been tremendous. I'm constantly in awe when she sends me pix of the new growth." —Mary A. Walls

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in three colors).

    11. A pack of eyeshadow shields to help you get sharper lines in less time. They'll also protect against eyeshadow fallout so you don't have to spend time cleaning up your foundation.


    Promising review: "These are wonderful, a great deal, and exactly what I’ve been looking for. I wear very expensive, heavily pigmented eye shadows which are impossible to get off my face without remover or washing. Problem solved!" —Amy Cherry

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. A soothing skin and scalp oil formulated with arnica flower, hemp, and tamanu seed oils as well as 100 mg of CBD to help calm and hydrate dry and flaky skin.

    a bottle of briogeo b well CBD oil

    Promising review: "This is a great oil! Before this, I was using castor oil, which is too thick to use on a regular basis. This oil is very light and spreads easily on a dry scalp. I've used it as an overnight treatment and the oil absorbs fully without leaving a greasy residue. It's helped relieve my dry scalp. I highly recommend it!" —gnocchibee

    Get it from Sephora for $48.

    13. A thermal windshield cover if you don't have time to scrape snow and ice off your car ever. This easy-to-install cover won't blow off in the night and has side wings for a smooth and tight fit.

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I could have ever bought! I bought one for myself, my mom, and my sister. New England just got slammed with a nor'easter, and let me tell you...this thing works! It only took about five minutes to put on my car, and like five seconds to get it off this morning. No snow or ice anywhere on the wiper well or windshield. I highly recommend this!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95+ (available in three sizes).

    14. A perfect Pocket Palette that includes mascara, BB cream, and blush/lip tint in case you don't have time to get all prim and proper at your vanity at home. Put your face on while you're on the go!

    A photo of someone holding up the Pocket Palette

    A Latinx woman–owned small biz, the Pocket Palette wants to make your life on the go a little easier.

    Promising review: "I travel often for work, and it’s so much easier to pack a few Pocket Palettes than tote my regular makeup — they’re super carry-on bag/airport friendly! I love my Lancôme but I’d much rather not tote around heavy glass bottles, so I keep a palette at the ready for the gym, in my purse, at my desk at work, etc. — they’re that convenient. For the makeup itself, the quality of the BB cream is great. It’s light, feels and looks natural, you can get at least two full uses out of the quantity. The lip/cheek color amount is also generous. I personally go for a darker lip generally, but this is good for blush and will last me a while. I love how handy the mascara applicator is, so fun-sized. For someone on the go, who isn't soooo makeup savvy that I'm contouring all the time, this product is really practical!" —Maureen

    Get a pack of three from the Pocket Palette on Amazon for $11.99 (available in two shades).

    15. A pack of flexible anti-snoring nose vents for better airflow that'll let the people under the same roof as you have a soundless sleep., Amazon

    There are two different types and each type has four size options!

    Promising review: "My husband is the worst about snoring and keeping me up all dang night. So I did some research and found these! I’m so excited that I bought them because he started snoring and I woke him up and asked him to use one. No noise!!! 10/10 would recommend to everyone." —Martha Jean Thompson Koons

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    16. A vegan and natural cedarwood-and-sage body wash from Hey Humans, a skincare brand founded by the Smith family (yes, Will, Jada, Jaden, and Willow). Enriched with jojoba seed and other essential oils, this wash will make your skin feel rejuvenated!

    Hey Humans wants to reduce our dependence on plastic, so this packaging is 99% plastic free and infinitely recyclable.

    Promising review: "This is amazing. It makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated. Plus, the scent is amazing and so is the texture." —hannahg207

    Get it from Target for $5.99.

It has helped me to look sharp at weddings and weekends away. At home, I can refresh my dresses and shirts before starting work and going out. I would highly recommend this product to everyone who might be thinking of a change. No more heavy irons and dry-cleaning for me. Thank you, Nori!” —Elizabeth M 

    Get it from Nori for $120.

    18. A shirt-folding board because you finally reclaimed control of your once overwhelming closet, and you're gonna want to keep it that way. In a few quick motions, you'll have your shirts, pants, towels, and more neatly folded and tucked away!

    Promising review: "I bought mine after seeing in a BuzzFeed article. I've been using it for months now and I gotta say, it's great! I fold on a king-sized bed and it works well. It took me a little getting used to, and I was apprehensive that it wouldn't work quite right because my clothes are larger (2X), but it does a great job and has held up to two or three medium/large loads a week. If only there could be something like this for fitted sheets, I'd be set! 🤣" —Liz

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

    19. A hanger stacker that'll keep all your unused hangers perfectly neat and organized so they're easy to grab when you do need them.

I will definitely be stocking up." —I & S. Stark

    The scissors in use

    Promising review: "The herb scissors are genius. Those alone are priceless. I have all these beautiful herbs from the garden but dreaded spending the time to mince them. Now it takes no time at all. That is time I get to spend with my family. The blade covers are a really nice addition and they fit snugly, so there’s no worry about them coming off in the drawer. I’m very happy to have this set in my kitchen." —Wendy Bowen

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection at Amazon for $12.74.

    25. A set of light-dimming sheets so your alarm clock doesn't keep you up with its glaring numbers. Oh the irony.

    the dimming sheets in use

    Pack comes with two large light-dimming sheets (cut to fit your needs)!

    Promising review: "What a time to be alive. I was laying awake at night wishing there was something I could do to make my hellish alarm clock less bright. I was really pleasantly surprised when I found out this product existed. I'm SO HAPPY that it does. I seriously don't know where my fiancé bought this alarm clock, but it has four brightness settings and they range from light house search light to surface of the sun. I cut one of these sheets and smoothed it over the display and it's AMAZING. I can still read the clock during the day, but at night it's now just the right brightness so I can see the time, but not burn my retinas when I crack my eyes open in the middle of the night." —Tiffany Marie

    Get a pack of two sheets from Amazon for $9.79.

    26. A cute and useful ceiling fan metal pull chain if you have a habit of pulling on the "fan" chain when you meant to pull the "light" chain and now you have to pull the "fan" chain three more times to turn it off.,

    Promising review: "Not only can I finally tell which pull chain works which function, but since I added them to the ends of my existing pull chains it's no longer necessary for my ancient 5-foot-1-inch carcass to stand on tiptoe just to reach the blasted pulls. Last time I ended up with a stress fracture in my foot. NOT fun." —La Donna Bucket

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    27. A spacious leather laptop backpack that'll only get more beautiful as it ages. Made using US-sourced leather, over time it'll develop a gorgeous patina and smooth out any scuffs or scratches it may have endured.

    Portland Leather Goods

    Portland Leather Goods is a small leather shop based in, you guessed it, Portland, Oregon, using a traditional veg tan effect to make all their high-quality pieces feel unique.

    I have their currently sold-out Astoria purse, and it definitely upgrades my most basic 'fits to NYC chic.

    Promising review: “This backpack fits my MacBook and a few other items I commute with daily. I commute into NYC using public transit so the bag had to be functional, durable, and of course stylish. My only regret is that I didn’t buy it sooner. I have just ordered the matching pencil case so my pens have a happy home. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!” —Johanna E

    Get it from Portland Leather Goods for $174 (originally $340; available in two colors).

    29. A pack of four toe separators for noninvasive pain relief that'll help straighten and realign your toes.

    Promising review: "These are absolutely a godsend! It is a great alternative to bunion surgery. My second toe was creeping over my big toe and at times causing spasms. These have made all the difference in the world! I am a very satisfied customer. Worth every penny! They are very comfortable to wear even with your shoes or sandals on." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.74+ (available in six colors).

    30. A convenient beauty spatula because you deserve to get every last ounce of foundation out of that $42 bottle.,

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49 (available in a pack of two).

    31. An electric fabric shaver to safely save your clothes from pills, fuzz, and matted fibers.

    a before and after of a sweater

    Promising review: "This thing is excellent. I just 'repaired' two cashmere sweaters and one modal-blend jersey top to like-new condition. The waste compartment fills up quickly and will start clogging the blades if not emptied frequently. I will share one trick I found for emptying the area around the blades. Remove the waste compartment and hold the unit vertically over a garbage can while turning the defuzzer on. Blades will spin and the rest of the pills will fall out. Enjoy." —Fine Print Reader

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors and two styles).

    32. A luxurious spa bidet from Tushy that'll allow you to adjust the water temperature for optimal tushy comfort. You won't be able to go back to just regular ol' toilet paper ever again.


    Promising review: "I can't imagine not having this now. I just feel so much fresher after using it. It looks nice and is well worth the money. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone." —Sharon L

    Get it from Tushy for $119 (originally $149; available in four colors with seven knob colors).

    33. A bug bite suction tool for mosquito bite relief if you're excited for tank tops and short shorts but not the fact that you'll be exposed to some nasty bloodsuckers. It pretty much sucks the irritant out from under your skin so you can live an itch-free life.


    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    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. I woke up with a bug bite on my arm so I used this little tool (three times per the instructions) — immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump/bite 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 two from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in packs of one to six).
