    1. A two piece Rubbermaid produce-saving container set to keep your fruits and veggies fresh long enough for you to decide exactly what to make with them. This set is perfect if your spinach dies .02 seconds after you unpack from your grocery bag.

    Promising review: "I wish I would have gotten these sooner. I bought strawberries for my children, and then I forgot about them. I found them in the back of the refrigerator almost TWO WEEKS later, and they were still good. The real miracle is how long it keeps zucchini. Zucchini starts to get mushy in the crisper drawer after just a few days. Again, these miracle containers have kept it fresh for close to two weeks now. I've kept cut lettuce, cut cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, zucchini, sliced bell peppers, strawberries, blackberries, cut jicama, and carrots in these containers. I've had fantastic results with all of them." —Laura

    2. A comfortable menstrual cup so you don't have to worry about leakage ruining your favorite pair of white pants. This bb can be worn for up to 12 hours and holds as much as four tampons can. Plus, if you take good care of it, it'll last up to 10 years!

    Promising review: "I just bought a second cup, because I love it so much! I've been a pad wearer for over 20 years. I've always hated the way tampons feel. I finally decided to try a cup after I kept hearing about how awesome they are from so many people. This cup is seriously amazing! I've been using it for about three months now, and I'll never go back to pads! Once it's in, I don't feel it at all. There have been times when I've forgotten that it's that time of the month! I haven't leaked even on my heaviest days. And I love that I only have to mess with it every 12 hours. This cup is life-changing. I'm so glad that I finally decided to give it a try!" —RachelT

    Amazon

    Now you can set financial goals and know that you have the resources to help you achieve them!

    Promising review: "I have struggled with budgeting my entire adult life. I have made many resolutions that I was going to keep track of my spending and that I was going to plan for the future, but the resolution has fallen apart for many reasons, not the least of which was not having a way to keep track with which I was comfortable. This allows me plenty of space at the front to name my budget goals, and to keep track of my progress. Rather than seeing a budget as a life-time thing, which I think is what makes it hard for me to commit to it on a daily basis, this provides me with plenty of motivation to keep going from day to day and beyond. Budgeting now makes much more sense in my life." —Lorraine Berry

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 16 colors).

    4. And a infographic guide to personal finance you can add if you need a little extra help managing your money. Its colorful pages break down everything you need to know about budgeting, saving, spending, debt, credit, investing and housing.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is wonderful. The infographic format makes this book for appealing to people who have very little interest in finance as a topic, but need to learn the basics of personal financial management." —Tayo Fakunle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    5. A portable charger so small it'll likely fit in the same pocket as the very phone on 3% battery. Never worry about your phone dying *just* as you were about to order an Uber again.

    Amazon

    And don't confuse this charger's size for its power because it can take their phone from 0% to 50% in only 30 minutes.

    Promising review: "This is my first purchase from this company's line of batteries, and I am extremely thrilled. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+ plus and finding battery chargers that consistently and reliably charge has been a hassle. But this little battery has been incredible. Plus, it says 10,000 mAh, but I swear it's much more than that. I have charged my phone two and a half times from 10% to full charge and this battery STILL has 38% charge remaining! I have bought many battery chargers in my life, and this is, by far, the best one I've ever used." —WestcoastJack

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    6. A harmless but bitter-tasting varnish that'll keep you from biting your nails so you can grow the claws of your dreams. It also doubles as nail strengthener if you also have an issue with breakage.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "During stressful times, I bite off all my nails. Once they're bitten off, it's hard for me to quit biting them so I thought I'd try this product. Well, it's been a week and I'm not biting them anymore. The taste if you do is just bitter enough to make you stop. And my nails already look better after a week. I highly recommend this product." —Cheryl Douglas

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    A reviewer image of a person wearing unfogged glasses with their face mask holding up the spray
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this product because wearing a face mask makes my glasses fog, even with the metal strip to form around the bridge of my nose. It works all day with only one application, unless I have been doing a lot of activity, then I might have to reapply. Just spray it on the clean lenses of your glasses then wipe dry with a clean dry lintless cloth, as simple as that. I was so impressed that I gave my second bottle to my team members for them to use. Delivery was fast. I highly recommend this product from this company. I would not hesitate to buy this again when I need more in the future." —Tonya Crippen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in three sizes).

    8. A supportive and durable yoga set because it is finally time to find your center. Complete with an ultra thick yoga mat, two yoga blocks, a yoga strap, and two towels, you'll have everything you need to become more flexible.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I loved this set! I really wanted to delve a little deeper into my yoga practice and this set was perfect! The mat is a comfortable thickness; it's not so firm that it puts more pressure on fragile ankles, but is firm enough that you feel confident in your practice. The blocks are awesome! I got the deepest, most relaxing stretch for my back with them. The belt is also incredibly helpful, especially if you are working on your flexibility." —Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $42.99 (available in four colors).

    9. A Burst Sonic toothbrush subscription that means consistent fresh breath *and* bright smiles! You'll receive replaceable toothbrush heads every 90 days. No more plaque buildup for you.

    BURST Oral Care

    Promising review: "I love everything about this brush! The color, the tapered bristles that reach between my teeth, its ability to whiten my teeth, the four-to-six-week battery life, and the lifetime warranty. But my favorite part is that my teeth feel squeaky clean after I use it! This brush really is the best at removing plaque!" —Robyn

    Get it from Burst Oral Care for $69.99 (originally $89.98; available in three colors).

    10. A subscription to Ritual for daily multivitamins that'll help add some pep to your step. Customize your bundle to your needs and wait for it to land on your doorstep.

    Ritual can even help you track your progress so you remember to take them every day.

    Promising review: "I took the chance to try out Ritual over six months ago, with a doubt because it is kind of pricy. But it turns out it is totally worth it. I love the smell, and they don’t make me nauseous when taking them on an empty stomach like many others do." —Kristine H.

    Each day is removable so you can take it wherever!

    Promising review: "If you take pills twice a day, like I do, and a lot of them, then this is for you! It's easy to use, colorful, this dispenser even holds my horse pills (fish oil and vitamin E) and all the others easily, and the lids pop up on the press of a button and snap closed securely. The line of seven on each side can be removed from the tray. It's a bit large, but all in all, it's well-made and very practical." —Thomas A. Darby

    Get it from Amazon for $11.79.

    12. A five-year memory book so you can write down your memories today and revisit them tomorrow. See how much your life changes over the course of five years!

    Gyan Yankovich / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My husband and I have been using this as a sort of 'positive affirmation' daily journal. We write one sentence that has made us feel positive for each day. It has really helped brighten our moods despite our busy, stressful lives. And this journal is a great format for it. I really like it a lot, and think everyone should do something like this to force themselves to think about positive things every single day." —Michelle

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! Living with four roommates that don’t clean (two dogs, one cat, one lazy human), I needed some assistance in keeping my place neat and free of hair tumbleweeds. This thing is AMAZING. It’s sleek, quiet, and does an incredible job on my hard floors, rugs, and carpet. It’s very quiet, honestly I had it run at midnight last night with no interruptions to my sleep. The suction is great, and you’ll see the amazing little trails on the carpet that clean people like me live for. I even have a higher pile rug in my room that I was concerned about, but my little guy went right over it with no issues." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in two colors).

    17. A set of round acne patches or extra-large square acne patches loaded with zit-shrinking hydrocolloid and tea tree oil that'll help you stop picking at your pimples by getting rid of them altogether.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’ve been experimenting with these for the last month and a half, and I am addicted. They are really thin and blend into my highly freckled face incredibly well...I have gone out in public twice with them on, because when I did my last second mirror check before I got out of the car, I didn’t notice I had them on! While they absolutely help clean out the skin underneath, the biggest thing it does for me is stops me from touching my face. When I'm stressed out, I will absentmindedly touch/run my hands along my face and jaw constantly. Now, when I notice I’m doing that, I run into the bathroom and put these on any spots I have. Since they are thin and stick really well, I am able to leave them alone and stop touching my face." —MelsBells

    Reviewers with braces say this a great flossing method for them!

    Promising review: "I have been using this for a couple of months now and have to say I love this Waterpik. I have had dental work done and I put a little salt in a glass with some warm water and mix then put in my Waterpik. This really helps with healing my gums and keeps food out of any spaces that can get food stuck. The flosser part works great and you will not be disappointed." —H. Ginn

    23. A creamy plant-based exfoliator made with microcrystals that'll gently buff away dead skin cells, leaving you with bright and smooth skin. It's time you finally said goodbye to breakouts!

    Versed

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about this exfoliator! I have very oily/acne prone skin, and I started seeing a difference after just one use! It says to use a quarter size, but trust me, pea size is all you need. The microcrystals are so fine that they really get the job done! My skin is smoother, has fewer breakouts, and has a glowy look." —Carson M

    instagram.com, Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I have chronic tension headaches (I am a very anxious person) and this has completely saved my brain. I was worried about using it on my temples and forehead because I have incredibly sensitive skin, but it hasn't made me break out or anything. It's a good level of dilution to not risk skin burns, and the addition of lavender helps calm my anxiety. I use this almost every day, sometimes multiple times a day if I'm really stressed. I've found that extending it down to my traps and behind my ears makes it work even better. 6/5 would always recommend." —E. R. Sutherland

    Promising review: "Love it, been using it every day. Since the infuser is full length, you can add a lot of fruit, cucumbers, and herb combos, I keep refilling the water all day and still get the flavors. Update: Six months later and I'm still in love with this bottle. I got it as part of my New Year's resolution to stop adding so many plastic bottles to our planet and to stop drinking flavored waters with chemicals. It's the first New Year's resolution I've ever kept, and do not foresee an end. I'd be lost without this bottle now, and it's also one of my favorite gifts or gift add-on to give." —Sannies

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90 (available in nine colors).

    27. A hypoallergenic overnight mask formulated with nourishing antioxidants, vitamins, and natural minerals that'll repair and moisturize your skin. Got sensitive skin? No problem! This soothing mask was made with you in mind.

I highly recommend it." —TaTReviews

    Promising review: "I used this large steamer for the first time today. I cooked fresh steamed vegetables in it. It did a terrific job. The vegetables retained their flavor and cooked perfectly.

    Promising review: "These are an absolute necessity in my house! I have two little girls and I never have enough of their dirty clothes to do loads separated by color. I Just throw everything in together (yes, even reds and white) and nothing ever bleeds onto the other. My husband does his own laundry too (he isn't the best at separating), and this saved him when a red sock accidentally made its way into the whites.

    Bek O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "My hair used to be really shiny. Then I had purple hair for a year, followed by blue for six months. My stylist had to bleach the beejeebers out of my hair to remove all of the funky colors. Ever since, my hair has been dry, crispy, and definitely not shiny. This stuff really makes a difference! I used it maybe 10–14 days ago, and I just redid it tonight. After shampooing, I towel-dried my hair and then put a big blob throughout my long-ish hair and clipped it up. I left it on for quite a while, just puttering around and getting chores done. Then I rinsed it and my hair feels soft and looks much shinier. I will keep using this as long as I need to (it will take a few years to grow out all the damage while maintaining length). I'm really glad that I read that article and bought the product" —SHANNON FRASER

    Promising review: "The headlight lens on my passenger side was so yellow and cloudy that I actually had a driver get out of his car on a red light and come over to my car to tell me! (yes, thank you, I know). I decided to try this kit because of its high rating and lower price. It really works! The instructions are easy to follow, with photos to show you how the end of each step is supposed to look. Don't be afraid of this if you have no one to help. I am a grandmother with (at the time) a bad shoulder, who had never done this before, and it turned out beautifully." —C. Ferry

    Plus, it's all-natural and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "This cleanser is great! It fully removes all makeup from the brushes without leaving them feeling beat up (I'm not the most gentle when it comes to cleaning brushes). I use a thick foundation that soaks heavily into the bristles, but this removed it all. At first I thought it was a bit thin, but after using it, a little bit goes a long way. It has a nice lather, but very nicely and easily rinses out." —Kryssy

    Promising review: "Cereal is basically my favorite food — breakfast, afternoon snack, after-dinner snack, always snack/meal. I used to LOVE getting 'sweet cereal' (as I used to call it), but these days I tend to stick with boring 'adult' boxes as I don't want to overload on sugar. I'm so excited about Magic Spoon — it is literally magical, because it has all the yumminess of sweet cereal (I especially love the cocoa and frosted) without the downsides." —Thea A.
