    1. A full-coverage concealer with a precise applicator that'll cover up any dark circles. Yes, you need more z's but no one will be able to tell!

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    Read our review of the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer (#4 on the list)!

    Here's an excerpt:

    "I still don’t know how a $7 tube of concealer (I use the Neutralizer shade) beats out the more expensive ones I have stuffed into my vanity, but it does. It’s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling.

    When I am done with my entire routine, my eyes look lighter and brighter, but not in a way that’s totally obvious — even when photos are taken and the flash is on. Basically what I am saying here is this is a staple beauty product that, IMHO, deserves a place in every makeup bag!" —Kayla Suazo (BuzzFeed Shopping & Products editor)

    Get it from Amazon for $6.90 (available in 19 shades).

    2. A cold brew maker so you know delicious coffee is waiting for you in the fridge.


    Just add coarse-ground coffee into the mesh filter, pour water into the pitcher, screw the lid on (with the filter attached and submerged in the water), let it brew for 12–24 hours, and serve. You can pour it straight over ice cubes, or cut it with water or milk. Read our review of the Tayeka cold brew maker!

    Promising review: "Bought this for my wife, and now I have become a cold-brew expert. Easy to use, easy to clean, and makes incredible-tasting coffee. This process removes all the bitterness and is easily our favorite way to enjoy our favorite drink. For the price you have to pay for cold brew at fancy coffee shops, this thing pays for itself pretty quickly. Try this once, and you'll love it." —Mark C

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    3. A three-minute journal to get you thinking and in a positive mood first thing in the morning.


    Promising review: "I really love this journal and hey, they aren't kidding when they say three minutes. It takes that much time, or less, to quickly jot a few things down using the guiding passages. It makes me feel grateful and prepared to take on my day! I find that I am often more patient and productive when I use this in the mornings. I keep it by my bedside and just jot a few things down when I wake up and before I go to bed. I love that it's guided and it is the same thing every day so you know what to expect and you don't have to rack your brain to end up writing down pointless things. These guide points really help you focus on what is important in your life and where your priorities are! There are also different inspirational quotes on each page which is just awesome. I will continue to use this journal for a long time and highly recommend making it a daily habit." —COURTNEY

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in five colors).

    4. A breakfast sandwich maker because everything's easier when there's food as a reward.

    Hamilton Beach

    The cooking plates are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I really try to fight my love of gadgets in favor of an uncluttered home, but this one I couldn't resist. I use it every morning before work to have a hot breakfast without, heaven forbid, waking up earlier." —RachelM

    Get it from Amazon for $24.79+ (available in three colors).

    5. A microfiber towel that can help cut down drying time so you'll be ready and out the door faster.


    Read our full review of the Aquis hair towel!

    Promising review: "This towel is amazing! I have thick, long hair that takes forever to blow dry (and for that reason, I don't use a hair dryer). This towel removes so much moisture from my hair in such a short amount of time! Within about five minutes of wrapping my hair up, I can remove the towel, use a spray-in conditioner, and be on my way without having to worry about my hair leaving wet spots on my shirt! So, I finally made this repeat purchase so I have a backup towel in case I lose this towel on a vacation. I love this so much I've been reluctant to bring it with me anyone for fear of losing it. Seriously, I love this!" —Stephanie M Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in eight colors).

    6. A vibrating alarm clock so loud, you might even wake up early just to avoid it.


    You can also use the vibration feature alone and don't worry, the volume is adjustable.

    Promising review: "This alarm clock has succeeded where many have failed. I have had severe issues waking up to an alarm for years now and had tried nearly every trick in the book. After many failed attempts at solving my stubborn sleeping habit, I finally found this product. The alarm clock's ear-piercing noise can usually wake me up by itself, but when you add to it the mattress vibrating mechanism, it is a sure thing. I've had the clock going on three months and haven't overslept a single day. There have been no problems with the clock whatsoever. If you can't seem to get out of bed in the morning, or repeatedly hit snooze on your current alarm clock without even recalling doing so, then this is the product for you. It may be a little pricey for an alarm clock, but it is worth every penny." —MDC

    Get it from Amazon for $33.02+ (available in seven colors).

    7. An insulated tumbler (with a lid) to fill with ice water and keep on your nightstand. Take a sip when you first wake up and you'll immediately feel more alert.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this tumbler! OMG. I make coffee in the morning and place it in the cup and cover it. By the time I get to work a few hours later, it is still piping hot. It is solidly built and does not disappoint. I have put iced drinks in this thing and the ice lasts hours after the liquid is gone. I have actually found ice still intact the NEXT day. I bought one and then followed that up and bought four more. This item is a WINNER. The best tumbler I have ever used in my life. I highly recommend this product to anyone. It would make a great gift for a coffee or tea drinker." —astrose00

    Get it from Amazon for $13.50+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    8. A set of clothing dividers for planning out your outfits a week in advance. No more rushed decisions in the a.m.!

    Promising review: "Easy to mark up and install on closet rods. Now I don't have to run to the window light to see which are the black and which are the navy pants and jackets. I can also separate winter and summer clothes and my lighter (thinner) sweaters from the heavier ones. Now all clothing is very visible. Such an easy fix! And fun to do. So easy to get and stay organized and keep your closet neat. Such a great product and idea." —myra

    Get a 24-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. A nourishing eye cream formulated with caffeine that might help you look a bit more awake.

    This eye cream contains no synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, or parabens.

    Promising review: "This eye cream smells AMAZING! I have only been using it for a couple of weeks, but I can see that it's making a difference! With how crazy my schedule is with two jobs, wedding planning, and a book blog, my sleep schedule is pretty messed up. This cream has helped with the puffiness and dark circles below my eyes. A little of the product also goes a long way! So I can tell that this one tube will last me quite a while." —Erica Robyn

    Get it from Amazon for $24.70.

    10. A pair of fuzzy slippers so your bare feet won't have to touch the cold floors.


    Promising review: "These are just what I was looking for. Something I can wear in the house and dash out to get the newspaper or pick up the mail. And they appear to be well made enough to stand up to being tossed in the washing machine, when needed." —Linda from Santa Barbara

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in women's shoe sizes 7–10.5 and five colors).

    11. A light therapy lamp to help you feel more energized on those dark winter mornings when you just can't seem to get out of bed.


    This lamp mimics natural light without the harmful UV rays.

    Promising review: "I love this light. It makes me feel way better when it's grim and dark and wintery. It's very bright, and just what I was looking for. I guess my cat missed the sun too, because she makes a point of lying in front of it when it's on, and it makes her less grumpy. Light therapy for elderly cats: highly recommended. Light therapy for people: also recommended." —Jessa

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    12. A bottle of dry shampoo for days when you choose an extra half hour of sleep over showering.


    Promising review: "This is by far the cheapest and best working dry shampoo that I’ve ever use over the years. I have oily hair and would absolutely recommend this product to those looking for a fresh look everyday. It saves me 20 minutes when it comes to getting ready and gives volume to fine hair as well as texture." —BMS

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $15.57.

    13. An electric toothbrush with a pressure sensor that'll do all the brushing for you. All you have to do is move your arm a little.


    It'll beep to let you know when you're brushing too hard and also when to replace the brush heads.

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this 10 stars! I cannot say enough about how much I love this! My teeth have never felt so clean. I went to the dentist after several years of being terrified and had some pretty bad gum disease. I was scheduled for a deep clean the following week. I got this toothbrush and in less than a week, the dental hygienist saw a huge improvement! I noticed a difference in the color of my teeth after one day! I'm seriously obsessed now. You will not regret buying this!" —Rachelle Salyers

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in two colors).

    14. A small but mighty space heater so you're not tempted to stay under the covers all day because your apartment is freezing.

    Promising review: "I cannot handle how sturdy and steadfast this powerful little heater is. It easily warms my little apartment, does not overheat, and is cute and little. I would not call it quiet, however, as it does produce a pretty loud fan sound — however, I actually find it soothing." —J Fu

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A multipurpose soap to streamline your shower routine so you don't have to switch between several products. (Heck, I've accidentally used shampoo as body wash many times when I was half asleep.)


    You can use it as a shower gel, shampoo, bubble bath, or shave gel. Plus, it's paraben-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, synthetic color and dye-free, and synthetic fragrance-free.

    Promising review: "Good soap and I like the natural smell. Washes off easily and leaves skin feeling good. Usually [I'm] not picky about soap, but I had a few extra bucks, and consider this soap a small luxury. The pleasant smell is uplifting first thing in the morning trying to wake up, and helps you get going. I'd seriously consider buying again." —RICH G

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $18.57 (available in five scents).

    16. A silk pillowcase for waking up with perfectly smooth hair. Goodbye, bed head!


    Promising review: "First of all, I've been told several times by many people to get a silk pillow case because it's great for skin and hair. And I finally bought one. I gotta say, I don't know why it took me so long, but this is one of the best purchases I have made for myself! The quality is great, it feels great against my skin, my hair looks fantastic in the morning, my skin looks better than ever, and I'm just super impressed! I love that it has a zipper. Do yourself a favor and buy one! You will not regret it." —Lesanna Dahlen

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in six sizes and 31 colors/patterns).

    17. An alarm that simulates the sunrise to make getting up a slightly more pleasant experience.


    Read our full review of the Philips wake-up light alarm clock!

    Here's an excerpt: "I've been using this alarm + bedside lamp combo since last October, and I can't understate how wonderful it is to wake up ~peacefully~ every morning...and fall asleep more easily every night. There are only two alarm sound options: a radio station of your choice and a set of 'gentle wake-up sounds' that seemed a little too peaceful to actually get me out of bed.

    I've never needed that backup alarm. Here's why: No matter what the sun is doing that day, I get a sunrise in my room, perfectly timed to my schedule. The sounds help a little, but the light does most of the work. It starts getting brighter, slowly, before the alarm goes off, which my body reads as the beginnings of the sunrise. By the time the birds start singing, I'm already most of the way awake, and the light's bright enough that (after a few minutes scrolling through my phone) I just...get out of bed." —Natalie Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $99.

    18. A programmable coffee maker so you can wake up to the smell of freshly made joe.


    This 14-cup coffee maker automatically shuts off after two hours.

    Promising review: "My fiancé and I purchased this coffeemaker to simplify our mornings, and we’ve had it for a year now. It works just as well now as the first time we used it, the programmable feature is very reliable. My fiancé is a baker, and wakes up at 4 a.m. or earlier for work. Being able to wake up and have coffee together in the mornings without taking the time to prepare it has been a godsend. We use this one to two times a day. With regular cleaning, it’s in great shape. The heating element keeps your coffee at the perfect temperature for two hours after brewing, and depending on the amount of coffee left, it will hold warmth for another half hour easy. We recently moved to a larger apartment and this is one of the only appliances we haven’t replaced. I’ve recommended this coffee machine to my sister, my coworker and his wife, and many others. Hands down one of our best Amazon purchases." —Braelynn

    Get it from Amazon for $37.24.

    19. A bag of Death Wish coffee (aka "the world's strongest coffee") if regular java is starting to lose its effect on you.


    Promising review: "I tried this coffee because I was spending $80 a month at the coffee shop for a large coffee with a shot of espresso, and I couldn't afford it anymore. So I ordered this to recreate the store-bought coffee at home, and it has exceeded my expectations. It tastes better and it's just the right amount of caffeine to wake me up without making me shaky. I've been drinking it for a week, and I'm so glad I bought it. I started by mixing it with my regular coffee grounds, so I didn't get a huge blast of caffeine right away. I can adjust it as I go along, depending on how much caffeine I need or want on a particular day. I also bring it to work in an insulated cup with some creamer, and it tastes much better than the store-bought coffee. I'll definitely continue to order this, you can't find anything like it in stores." —Ravenhair

    Get a 16-ounce bag from Amazon for $19.96.

    20. A personal blender with travel cups you can take directly to go because you probably won't have time for sit-down breakfast.


    This personal blender comes with two 16-ounce travel cups, two lids, and a 30-recipe guide to get you started. It's dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This blender has been life-changing for me. I can put large chunks of ice, frozen berries, kale, spinach, anything and it completely pulverizes them into a smoothie! It is easy to use and clean, only takes me about 10 minutes to prepare, blend, and clean in the morning before work. Love this blender!" —busyjh

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    21. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker that'll motivate you to jump into the shower so you can listen to your favorite music/podcast.

    Promising review: "We've had this for a few months now and it's been awesome. The sound is amazing for the size, good bass, and battery life is longer than what we expected. Easy to use, easy to connect, and easy to charge. We mostly use it for the bathroom (while in shower, cleaning, or getting ready) but we've taken it outside when we've been working on projects and it works great for us. For the price, honestly I'm amazed! We charge it once a week and use it every another day for about an hour." —D dot O

    Get it from Amazon for $14.44+ (available in four colors).

    22. A helpful checklist doormat so you don't forget your keys, phone, and wallet when you're in rush.

    LindenFieldsHome / Etsy

    Get it from LindenFieldsHome on Etsy for $49.95+ (available in two sizes).
