We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

Psst! Amazon has a section featuring products that people put on their wish lists and registries most often.

Here are some of the coolest and most useful products from that section this week:

1. A mini waffle maker perfect for making brunch for one...or two, if you're feeling generous. It comes in pretty pastel colors, so you'll want to leave it on your countertop!

This mini waffle maker features nonstick cooking plates that allow for easy cooking and cleanup! You can even heat leftover mini waffles up in the toaster (unlike regular-size waffles).

Promising review: "Bought this for the missus this Christmas (she said she wanted one), but I think I've used it more often than she has, and I've never been the waffle maker. That's because it's compact, easy to use, quick, no muss no fuss, and there isn't any cleanup. Waffles come out just right — they're the perfect size and ready in a minute or two; they pop cleanly from the griddles, after which just spray with cooking oil (after cooling) and wipe clean." —D.. Forrest

Price: $9.99+ (available in six colors)


2. A tube of blister prevention balm to apply on your feet before slipping into those brand new heels. You'll be thankful you did in a couple hours.,

Promising review:

 "I bought this to try out with the boots and heels I wear when I dress up. I brought it with me when I went on a trip recently. It's small and convenient to take along with you. I was dreading dressing up because I always get blisters when I wear certain shoes. I put it on my heels, the top of my feet, and the sides of my feet. It works — it really does! I didn't have blisters during my entire trip!" —DV Ryan

Price: $12.99

3. A mini cinema lightbox you can keep on your desk and arrange the letters to say, "Is it Friday yet?"

This lightbox measures 5.8" x 3.9" x 1.5" and comes with 90 letters, numbers, and symbols! It can be battery operated (requires four AA batteries) or plugged in via the micro-USB port.

Promising review:

 "Great and fun conversation piece! It’s small, but I was expecting as such based on the reviews and item details. Sturdy and well made. Battery operated or you can plug in via a USB cord. You can wall mount it, it stands up by itself, AND it’s magnetic. I think that’s awesome for $12!" —Karen Gast

Price: $12.89

4. A set of dual brush pens that'll get you into the art of hand lettering.,

These dual brush pens feature a flexible brush tip on one end and a fine tip on the other. Each set includes nine colors and one colorless blender pen.

Promising review:

 "I purchased these after seeing several well-known artists utilize them, and was not disappointed! They are incredibly pigmented but easy to work with. I use them for hand lettering and calligraphy, and they flow smoothly and are perfect for people starting to hand letter or just looking to draw with quality brush pens. I'm very impressed and would definitely repurchase." —Maesie Saffle

Price: 10-pack for $18.99 (available in 10 styles)

5. A travel-size sound machine and Bluetooth speaker designed for troubled sleepers who are always on the go.

It comes with 10 unique sounds for sleep and relaxation, including five fan sounds, four white noise variations, and a soothing ocean sound. The built-in rechargeable battery can play 16 hours of ambient sounds or six hours of streaming audio between charges!

Promising review: "I love this little device! The volume of sound it produces can be easily adjusted. It gets plenty loud! It completely blocks out a train noise in my bedroom at night, allowing me to sleep without earplugs! The large version of this item has a greater variety of sounds, but this one is great!" —Fantasy Fan

Price: $31.99 (available in two colors)


6. A pair of kick mats to prevent little feet from smearing mud on the back of the car seats.

These kick mats fit most minivan, SUV, and sedan seats. The fabric is machine washable and water resistant!

Promising review:

 "I purchased a vehicle that has tan leather seats and needed something to keep my two-year-old from scuffing up the seat backs. This was a perfect fit and was a lifesaver through the winter. It was very simple to unfasten and move. This is a must-have for anyone driving with kids." —Windy City Transplant

Price: two-pack for $17.99

7. A set of bamboo storage boxes, so you can declutter the drawers and actually find stuff you need.

All the boxes are 2.5 inches in height!

Promising review: "Bought this for the dreaded junk drawer in an attempt to organize it. This works really well if you have an odd-shaped drawer and you don’t want to buy something in one piece so there is wiggle room to arrange things. The pieces are well made, and it looks simple but nice." —DorothyZ

Price: five-pack for $21.42+ (available in two sizes)

8. A waterproof eyeshadow stick (with a built-in smudger) to easily apply on the go — no brushes or fingertips required. It sets in 30 seconds and lasts all day!

This product is SLS free, paraben free, and cruelty free!

Promising review:

 "I love this eyeshadow! It stays put all day and doesn't end up looking greasy or migrate to the eyelid crease. Great neutral color." —Karen K

Price: $18 (available in 20 colors)

9. An electric makeup brush cleaner for people who hate washing their brushes by hand and waiting for them to dry overnight.,

This cleaning set comes with the brush spinner, a charging station, eight rubber collars, a glass bowl, a splash guard ring for the bowl, and a 140-milliliter bottle of makeup cleaning solution.

Promising review:

 "Love this thing! It is amazing and works just as described; it cleans AND dries brushes in seconds! Dense brushes take a little longer to dry, you just have to let them spin a little longer, but it's far better than the one- to two-day drying time I used to deal with. I can use them again immediately after because the brushes are spun completely dry! I used to dread cleaning my brushes, now it's so easy that I do it frequently. Totally worth the investment for someone who hates cleaning their brushes like I did. I've recommended it to others, and they love it, too!" —A.Grant

Price: $39.99


10. A mermaid skeleton embroidery patch that can accurately represent how you feel before getting your Starbucks in the morning.,

Promising review: "I absolutely adore this patch. It looks even more wonderful in person, and the detailed stitching is stunning. I ironed it onto a black hoodie, and I always get tons of compliments on it!" —Schwartz

Price: $5.78

11. A pair of gold hairpins sure to ~bee~ a conversation starter whenever you wear them.

Promising review:

 "Very pleased with my purchase. I love bees, and these are gorgeous; perfect size so that they can be seen without being too big. Very good quality, and they work very well with my thick, coarse hair. Removing them from my hair does not pull or hurt. Would buy again." —Leslieflan

Price: two-pack for $2.73

12. A container of teeth-whitening charcoal powder so you can blind someone with those pearly whites.,

Promising review: "I really like this product. After one use, my teeth felt perfectly polished and after a few uses, the plaque stains around my gums were gone (and yes, I do floss daily). I've been using this for about two weeks now, and my teeth just look and feel clean all the time. So far this product has removed some surface stains, and I think that with continued use, it will slowly whiten my teeth to a point that I am happy with, but for now, it feels good to enjoy smiling again!" —Tonya Williams

Price: $14.99

13. A pack of hydrating sheet masks for a cheap and easy at-home facial when your skin feels dry and dull. (Damn you, winter weather!)

Promising review: "These are honestly really good. I have used all but one, and I will be reordering. Three things I like the best about these masks: 1) They are very moisturizing. My face can sometimes be dry and patchy and slapping this on my face eliminates the dryness and leaves my skin soft and hydrated. 2) They have never given me pimples or rashes or redness on my skin. My experience using these masks has been completely positive. 3) They are relaxing. I actually look forward to applying one of these masks on my face after a long day at work. The gel that comes with the mask is not sticky, and it leaves the face feeling refreshed." —Samuel L. Radaha

Price: 16-pack for $10.25


14. A pack of wool-blend socks with colorful cuffs that'll peek out when you wear your fave ankle boots.

These socks are designed to fit women's shoe size 5–9!

Promising review:

 "Ok, I did not expect to enjoy these socks as much as I do, but I'm about to buy a second set. They're thick and very warm. They arrived in the cutest little box, nice enough to use for gifting. The elastic is perfect: enough to not slide around while wearing boots but not so tight as to cut off circulation." —Amazon Customer

Price: five-pack for $9.99 (available in two styles)

15. A ceramic heat styling brush to smooth out your locks ASAP in the morning. It'll be faster and easier to use than a straighter and leave your hair with more volume!,

Check out a BuzzFeed editor's review of this styling brush here (#2)!

Promising review:

 "This brush really does the job and is a better alternative for flat irons (for me personally). It took me just 20 minutes to straighten my hair instead of one hour with a traditional straightener. Love the result!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $71.99

16. A cold brew maker for anyone who takes their coffee iced, even when it's blizzarding outside.

Promising review: "This thing is amazing! I normally spend about $10 a week on iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts (I know it doesn't seem like much, but it adds up), but this one-time $20-ish purchase has basically stopped that habit. The coffee is delicious, and the process literally couldn't be any easier. Best money I've spent in a long time." —Pen Name

Price: $19.99

17. A makeup blending sponge shaped like everyone's favorite lazy egg. You'll be smiling when you get ready in the morning even if Gudetama isn't.,

Promising review:

 "I'm a bit of a makeup snob. I bought this for the novelty, not thinking it would do such a good job, and I like it. It actually performs well! And it's a really large sponge, which I love. Will be buying more!" —LoveShopping123

Price: $6.24


19. A five-blade spiralizer for an efficient way to make zucchini noodles, so you can keep up with your resolution to eat more veggies in 2018.

The extra blades can be stored under the base so everything is kept in one place! Everything is dishwasher safe!

Promising review:

 "This spiralizer is super easy to use and clean. It makes food prep at the beginning of the week super easy. I primarily use it to make zucchini noodles versus traditional pasta. My kids loved the noodles and helping with the spiralizer. Highly recommend this over a handheld version." —Matt

Price: $28.99

20. A set of highlighters in soft colors that won't hurt your eyes when you look at them.,

Promising review:

 "I ADORE these highlighters. I usually hate how wet and heavy most highlighters are, and how the color goes through the page. These don't do that! They are nice pastel colors and barely bleed through the page. My new favorite highlighters!" —Gemmeg

Price: five-pack for $6.65

21. A heat-changing constellation mug any stargazer would be over the moon about.

This mug is microwave safe and handwash only!

Promising review: "This mug is just so cool. It is just black with white dots for stars when it is cold. When you fill it with a hot beverage, it shows the blue outlines of the constellations and their names. We absolutely love this mug. It washes up well, does not fade, and works wash after wash." —Ursula

Price: $15.95


22. A dotted notebook for starting that bullet journal you've been planning since last year.,

These notebooks have smooth, faux-leather covers!

Promising review: "A really nice, cheaper alternative to the likes of Moleskine. The paper is thick, and gel ink doesn't bleed through. The elastic is solid and won't pop off, and the binding is strong." —T. Falkowski

Price: $10.95 (available in three sizes, four styles, and seven colors)

23. A super-absorbent doormat that'll catch all the icy slush stuck to your snowboots, so you won't leave muddy footprints behind.

This 18" x 28" doormat is machine washable! It has nonslip latex backing that won't slip or scuff floors.

Promising review: "We live in the Pacific Northwest — a rain forest. This mat has a nice heavy-duty feel and does a great job soaking up water so we don’t track it in. We have a debris catching mat outside and this one inside. Haven’t had to sweep up the mud room other than just on a regular cleaning day since." —Strick360

Price: $27.99

24. A stretchy V-neck dress you can wear to work, to a dinner date, or even on the weekend at home because it's just that comfortable!,

This dress is made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex!

Promising review: "Great quality and so comfortable! I am an attorney, and I feel like this is nice enough for court but still comfortable enough to wear at home." —Allison

Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes S—XXL and 14 designs)
