1. Mother Earth-approved bamboo towels said to replace up to six month’s worth of paper towels. They’re stronger (see: watermelon pic) and more durable than the other kind so you can reuse ’em.

Amazon

I’m not sure *why* you would use a paper towel to hold a watermelon under the faucet but it’s certainly a striking example of the strength of bamboo! Anyway, all you have to do when you’re done using one is throw it in the wash.

Promising review: “I clean for a living, so using these on the job as well as my home makes life much easier, and I can feel better about not being so wasteful. I use them for drying my hands, cleaning the countertops, and as a reusable Swiffer pad for floors. What I do is mark each one with a Sharpie. My first initial for hands and face at home, ‘C’ for cleaning counters and ‘F’ for floor. What I love about these the most is they dry a lot quicker than regular towels and washing them is super easy. Dirt and grime tends to just rinse right out. Even on the mop pads. It’s incredible. Now I don’t have to waste money buying the Swiffer refills. These are different to use but it’s worth figuring out what works for you!! A must buy for eco-friendly cleaning!” —Joyce

2. A crown-shaped cushion to turn your office chair into a throne. New lyrics for Billie Eilish: “You should see me in a crown chair.”

Amazon

Also in the listing: paw, rose, and square shapes!

Promising review: “I love crowns so when I saw this, I had to have it. Bought it for the looks and love it now for the comfort. And off course it’s pink, my favorite color.” —Dixie

Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in three colors).

3. A double-layered umbrella that closes inside-out so you don’t get soaked when you try to close the darn thing. Such an easy fix, yet it took us so long to figure it out.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love this umbrella! It’s nice-looking. I bought the ‘Starry Sky’ design, but there are lots of different colors and patterns to choose from. The quality is good, and the inverted-open design is great, allowing the water to fall from inside then close to help keep you and your surroundings dry.” —Wanda Williams

Get it from Amazon for $16.70 (available in many patterns).

4. A pair of classy rainboots so you can still wear cute shoes even when it’s pouring.

Amazon

Click through to see the camo, yellow, and GLITTER options!

Promising review: “I’ve been wanting some Chelsea rain boots for a long time now, and these are PERFECT for the price. $25 for nice rainboots is for sure a steal, and the rubber on these is super pliable and comfortable for day-long wear. I will say the sizing isn’t perfect; I fall between an 8-9 depending on the brand, but generally find my feet to be closer to a 9. Since there aren’t half sizes, I went with the 9 here, and it is definitely a little too large. If you’re a borderline size like me, you may want to go on the smaller side instead.” —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–12 and 10 colors).

5. A cellphone holder that clips to your car’s air vent and keeps your makeshift GPS at eye-level. It’s so easy and helpful, you’ll be kicking yourself for not getting it sooner.

Amazon

Just slip the metal plate in your phone case and now you can stick it to the magnetic mount.

Promising review: “Love this product. It’s so simple — stays on the dash nicely. The metal plate on your phone is thin. I think the fact that the magnet isn’t on the phone itself is better for the phone. If you have a phone cover, you don’t even have to stick it to the phone. Rather just insert it between your phone and cover. The magnet is very strong and should hold.” —Mika

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $11.99.

6. A whitening kit to make your smile even more dazzling.

instagram.com

Here’s what’s in the kit: two LED mouthpieces that connect with a lightening, Micro-USB, or USB-C port and several tubes of whitening gel. Just add the gel to your mouthpieces, insert into your mouth, plug it into your phone, and admire your (literally) glowing smile. After five minutes of marinating your chompers, rinse and repeat for six days. The formula is vegan, cruelty-free, enamel safe, and boasts ingredients like aloe vera, mentol, and chamomile.

Get it from Glowup for $60.

7. A custom tea light holder that looks just like your cat or dog! Just send in a photo and you can have a mini Fido in your home in no time.

SavaKeramika

8. A bottle of truffle seasoning to make meals taste extra fancy without having to invest in a truffle-sniffing pig.

Amazon

Promising review: “Yes, I’m a truffle lover to begin with. And, of course, only a truffle is a truffle. But I gotta tell ya this delectable heaven-sent powder is one heck of an addictive and more versatile option. Utterly AMAZING on popcorn, in eggs, added to soups and sauces to layer flavors, veggies, PASTA…the list is endless (I think the only thing I haven’t tried was sprinkling it on ice cream…although LOL). It is a bit salty, so I advise testing the waters first. But I just ordered my ninth and tenth bottle of the Truffle Zest.” —Greengirl

Get it from Amazon for $13.12.

9. An ice tray with a lid so you can walk at a normal pace from the sink to the freezer and just throw that thing in there, no risk of spills.

Amazon

Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE ice cubes in my drinks, and it’s so annoying to have ice cube problems. I really researched ice cube trays and read a lot of reviews until I found these trays. It’s so nice not to have to worry about spilling water just trying to get them in there. Also, they come out of the tray so easily! No more fighting to get the cubes out. These just kind of pop out when you press down on one side.” —Kalisa

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

10. A tiny Baby Yoda speaker that’s small in stature but big in sound.

Amazon

Promising review: “I just wanted a small Bluetooth speaker for bedtime audiobooks. This is louder than I expected and my son just loves it! It is easy to keep nearby because of its small size, and I am happy with this purchase!” —ray cerda

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

11. A bottle of squalane oil to make your skin so luxuriously soft and bouncy, you’ll slam dunk all your other creams in the trash.

instagram.com

I recommend this to everyoneeee, including my dermatologist. It’s a multi-faceted product that can be used on your face, body, skin, and hair. It locks in moisture and leaves my face feeling bright and bouncy.

Get it from Biossance for $32.

12. An aerator that pops right onto the mouth of the wine bottle and infuses oxygen as you pour. It releases the aromas, meaning $5 wine might end up tasting like $15 wine.

Amazon

My friend has one of these and I can confirm it makes a HUGE difference.

Promising review: “These wine aerators are FABULOUS! I do wine demos for different wineries and I don’t always have time to let a bottle of wine breathe properly before a demo starts. These greatly enhance the flavor and it makes all the difference in the world. My sales numbers increased greatly. And you can’t beat the price!” —Ash Bash

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.95.

13. A back zipper pull so you can get into dresses all by yourself, no complicated methods or partners needed.

Amazon

No need to use your treadmill like Liz Lemon.

Promising review: “I bought a dress with a back zip (‘invisible zipper’ too, i.e. tiny!) recently from Ann Taylor. Getting into it and zipping it all the way up was nearly impossible…..unless I wanted to start cussing and sweat buckets throughout the whole ordeal. Let me tell you, this worked like a charm, even on that tiny zipper of mine. Just follow the instructions and you can NOT go wrong, IMHO. Worth the money.” —Chicago888

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors).

14. A dermaplaning tool that’ll quickly clean up eyebrows and peach fuzz with just the flick of the wrist. So! Easy!

Amazon

Promising review: “I regularly used the Tinkle facial razors which I thought worked well, but I just used one of these razors for the first time yesterday and OMG the amount of peach fuzz and to my surprise dead skin that came off was shocking and oh-so-satisfying. I will definitely be stocking up.” —I & S. Stark

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $4.99.

15. A dishwasher magnet so you can know at a glance whether the dishes are clean or dirty. Arguments = avoided. Accidentally eating off a dirty plate = never again.

Amazon

Just rotate it to switch the “status.”

Promising review: “I don’t know why it took me so long to buy this thing, but I’m glad that I finally did. Yes, to some it might be silly, but there are times when I forget or can’t tell whether my dishes and glassware are clean. This $3 magnetic sign saves me from washing the ‘dirty’ dishes another time.” —Colmac

Get it from Amazon for $5.65.

16. Slow cooker liners so you don’t have to yank the heavy pot out of the cooker to clean it. Bags! Gotta love ’em.

Amazon

Promising review: “Why? Why would you want to scrub your giant Crockpot? Well, now you don’t have to — these liners are the perfect solution for your Crockpot needs. Simply place it in your crockpot like you would a trash bag, add all of your ingredients, cook, and then when you’re all done…just trash the liner! I’ve been using these for years and I will never go back to scrubbing the tough cooked on food from the day’s cooking. I have never once had a liner with a leak and I really feel like Reynolds has helped make kitchen cleanup so much easier with this smart product.” —Katie B.

Get it from Amazon for $2.53.

17. A creamy deep conditioner for anyone with 3a–4c hair. Thanks to its super-fruit oil formula, it provides a lightweight hold that leaves curls and coils feeling soft and moisturized.

Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

Bread Beauty Supply is a Black woman-owned business that was founded by Maeva Heim in 2020.

Promising review: “LOVE this product! My hair is very dry and frizzy but this product made my hair so much more manageable and soft. I will definitely be getting more once I’m out!” —Nivedhitha

Get it from Sephora or Bread Beauty Supply for $28.

18. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top.

Amazon

Promising review: “Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I’ve used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver.” —M. Smith

Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

19. A bear-y nice under-eye stick to soothe puffiness and dark circles. If a beauty item isn’t shaped like an animal, is it even worth getting?

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Highly recommend putting it in the fridge and applying once in the morning and once before bed. Two weeks difference with product shown above. It feels wonderful after a long day, but also makes you refreshed if you aren’t a morning person.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

20. A glitzy ring that doubles as a fidget spinner to keep your fingers busy and looking good.

Amazon

Promising review: “I LOVE these rings. They’re gorgeous, they sparkle beautifully in the sunlight, they fit well, and the spinning is so satisfying. It spins very smoothly and can go on for quite a while. I’ve been wearing the silver one daily for almost two months, and there’s no sign of fading either on the metal or in the rhinestones. It looks as new as the day I bought it. I used to carry a fidget cube around, but this is much more discreet, prettier, and since I can just wear it all day I’m never stuck without something to play with. I highly recommend!” —Michelle

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three colors).

Promising review: “Every winter, my fingers and knuckles crack and bleed. I’ve tried everything on the market to heal my hands. I received this hand cream yesterday and when I put it on, I could tell right away that this was better than anything I’d tried. This stuff started working immediately. I filled all the cuts and cracks on my hands with this cream, and today they are almost healed. I believe that this is the best hand cream ever made on earth.” —Steve

Get a 3.4-ounce jar from Amazon for $9.48.

22. An antique-style pin that asks the age old question, “Please, I beg you, can I pet your dog???”

TheCardAisle

23. A handy device that keeps track of whether or not the dog has been fed. Those hungry puppy dog eyes aren’t fooling anyone now, Fido!

amazon.com

Promising review: “Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it’s green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!” —Toni Deegan

Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

24. A journal happy to store all your increasingly complicated passwords. At least 12 characters, including a symbol, number, capital letter, ancient rune, and the fleeting details of a half-remembered dream? COME ON!

Amazon

It’s alphabetized so you can easily find the one you need!.

Promising review: “This was exactly what I wanted. The book has a heavy plastic cover and heavy-duty wire binding. The paper is good quality, although my favorite gel pens did have some bleed-through. I’d recommend ballpoint or pencil. The entries have wide spaces, with room for website, email, username, password, and notes (which is perfect for noting the answers to those security questions… What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I don’t remember what I answered a year ago!). The password section has a good number of extra lines, for those sites that make you change your password with annoying frequency.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in four sizes).

25. An undemanding journal that just requires a single line each day. It’s a five-year journal so you can compare your growth over the half decade.

Amazon

Promising review: “You will never regret buying this journal. I have always been a huge proponent of journaling. I journal everyday. I reread my old journals weekly. I love writing. This journal is a great way to ease yourself into journaling if it is an idea you’re exploring but are nervous to completely delve in. It is a huge commitment; I won’t lie, I occasionally go a few days without writing a few words. But being able to compare the years throughout your life is amazing. I wish I’d been doing this since I learned to write. If you’re thinking about getting this journal, do. It is my most prized material possession.” —Samantha Bone

Get it from Amazon for $15.09.

26. A REALLY cute hanging diffuser that’ll make your car feel like a fancy spa. Or, if you get the spiced cider scent, a harvest festival in full swing.

AmberandWoodCo

27. A reliable dustbuster you might as well keep holstered to your side so you can attack unexpected messes as soon as they happen.

Amazon

I love this dustbuster sooo much. It’s lightweight and it sucks up anything you put in its path. Everyone should have a reliable hand vac in their home for those little spills and emergencies.

Promising review: “I liked this vacuum so much, I sent all my children this vacuum for Christmas! So handy for crumbs or flour spills in kitchen. Drop a glass…use it right away to get the small shards or chips of glass. Quick hair grabber in bathrooms. See a dust bunny behind the couch? Get it quickly without dragging out your large vacuum. NO chord. Sits on charger, ready to go 24/7.” —mike in sw.

Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

28. An electric bottle opener that works so well, you’ll realize you were living in the dark ages with that corkscrew all these years.

Amazon

Promising review: “My goodness…I have FINALLY found a wine bottle opener that works perfectly!!! This grammy doesn’t always have the strength to use other wine bottle openers and this Oster bottle opener is that LAST wine bottle opener I’ll ever have!!! Thank you, Oster!!! You know what you’re doing…AWESOME! Thank YOU!!!” —QV

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

29. A pair of massage slippers that are meant to be worn for 15 minutes at a time to help with various foot pain problems.

Amazon

Promising review: “I had done a lot of research on these before I purchased them. When I received them I put them on for 15 minutes and wore them around the house while I did my household chores. I did wear socks with them. The last five minutes were a bit painful but I kept them on. The first night I slept better than I have slept in a really long time. I woke up with no knee pain or sciatica and back pain. I could actually get up from a sitting position without struggling. I am 71 years old and my knees and back have been giving me a fit for a really long time. My husband was so impressed that he asked me to order him a pair. I truly believe in the health benefits that these offer and all without drugs and/or surgery. I will continue to wear them the recommended 15 minutes per day. I can’t say enough positive things about these slippers, and have already recommended them to my family and friends.” —ELIZABETH J.

Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 4F–12M and four styles).

30. A tumbler with misheard lyrics, because sometimes the fake ones are better, OK?

Meriwether1976

31. A pack of food spikes to nourish your plants for up to two months continuously. It’s a lot easier than constantly squirting liquid fertilizer on them.

Amazon

Promising review:I swear by these plant food spikes!!! The package says they are for indoor plants, but I actually use them for all of my outdoor plants, especially my herbs. I first tried these after planting some basil and other herbs that seemed to be taking an eternity to grow. I figured I’d give them a try since they were so inexpensive and wow!!!!! Within just a few days, my plants had grown more than double what they had grown in the previous several weeks!! One of my friends (who also enjoys gardening) came over to my house and was in awe of how big and healthy all of my herbs were. When I told her about these spikes, she went straight from my house to purchase some and had the exact same growth results.” —GatorDO17

Get a pack of 24 spikes from Amazon for $2.87.

32. A suction tool to help relieve the itchy agony of bug bites by sucking out insect venom, saliva, and other irritants under your skin. Finally, you can go outside after dark again!

Rebecca O’Connell / BuzzFeed

Make sure you read all the directions before using so you don’t accidentally give yourself a hickey! I’ve used this and it totally works. It won’t completely get rid of 100% of your bug bites, but it makes a noticeable difference. I haven’t scratched once since this amazing device came into my life.

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 $18.95.

33. CND SolarOil Nail & Cuticle Care to repair peeling and painful nails, so you can find relief after doing the unspeakable and peeling off a gel manicure.

amazon.com

Promising review: “So, I have been using this product for about a month. I apply it every night before I fall asleep so the oil has a chance to really get absorbed. I have not used with any other products. Similar to another reviewer, my nails chip, like all the time. Especially, index and middle fingers on both hands. For years, I have tried strengthening polishes, salves, and lotions but nothing worked, until now. I am happy to say that this really stopped the chipping. Only one of my nails has any indication that chipping was an issue. Thank you so much!” —Angela Wills

Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

34. A pair of copper-infused arch supports that reviewers swear by for combatting pain from fallen arches, flat feet, bunions, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis. Consider them tiny friends that hug your feet.

Amazon

I have and LOVE these. They really ease my aching feet and they’re super comfortable. You can wear them under socks and shoes without any discomfort. Sometimes I even sleep in them. They can survive a spin in the washing machine, and seem pretty durable. I definitely recommend if you need a little more arch support in your life.

Promising review: “I put these on after they came in the mail and wore them for about one hour. Then, as I was resting on the couch, I fell into the kind of deep sleep that one only dreams of. This was the most epic, most restorative nap I can remember. The kind of nap Joey Tribbiani and Ross Geller had in Friends they tried so hard to recreate. I am kinda afraid to take them off now. I wear them with my flip-flops, under my socks in tennis shoes, and to bed. My feet feel great. As for whether or not they contributed to my most perfect nap, I don’t know for sure, but I’m rolling with it.” —Texas Sandra Dee

Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

36. A pack of Bottle Bright tablets possibly made out of fairy dust, because they’ll totally wipe away years of grime in mere minutes.

amazon.com

Just fill your dirty mug with water, add a tablet, let fizz for half an hour, and then rinse!

Promising review:I seriously can’t believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug — I tried everything. Bottle brush, different kinds of soap, vinegar, EVERYTHING, and there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY, without even scrubbing. They look brand new. What a magical product. No weird smell or taste afterward, either. I liked it so much I used it on another HydroFlask I use primarily to hold my Bloody Mary mix in the fridge. I couldn’t put anything else in it because it would always taste like spicy tomato juice. Bottle Bright to the rescue! No residual smell or taste anymore. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.” —Amazon Customer

Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $7.99.

37. A jewelry cleaning pen you can count on to add new shine to your gems, no costly trip to the jeweler needed.

Promising review: “I have a 2.5-carat wedding ring and have a hard time really finding anything that gets that ‘first day’ sparkle back. With the Dazzle Stick, it shines again. Thank you so much!” —C.Skinner

Get it from Amazon for $5.24.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have deck rail flower boxes and they get full sun most of the day. I filled in the drain holes to hold more water and added these to the soil. Both made a huge difference in the quality of life for the plants. They were and still are gorgeous even if I couldn’t water every day. I do have to admit I used more per planter than the recommended amount.” —Pattijwr

Get it from Amazon for $8.72.

39. InStyler Glossie Brush, a ceramic straightener, hot-brush tool ready to provide you with pin-straight hair with just a few passes. OK, wow!

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

Promising review: When I saw this Glossie hot brush made by Instyler, I just had to try it. I just sprayed in some of this L’Oreal Sleek It Heat-Protecting Spray, ran my fingers through my hair for a quick detangle, and started brushing. Holy cow, you guys, with just one pass over my hair, it was almost entirely straight. My jaw lit’rally dropped. Two more passes and it was pin-straight, not fried-looking, and just a joy to run my fingers through. I did my whole head of hair in about 15 minutes. I really can’t describe how shocked I was by the results.” —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Staff
