    1. A Diamond Dazzle Stik because you can only keep using the phrase "shine bright like a diamond" if your diamonds actually do shine bright. This small tool will transform your jewelry from cloudy and dirty to clean and clear in only a matter of minutes.,

    Promising review: "I was a little worried about this product when I bought it. I did not think this would clean my ring well. If you're debating this product, I 100% recommend it. It cleaned my ring so well. I was shocked. I felt it even cleaned better than the jewelers. I love how it’s so easy to travel with and just spot clean your jewelry whenever you want to." —Emily Warren

    Reviewer wearing the fuzzy teddy bear jacket with a zipper down the front and large pocket in light brown

    Promising review: "I’ve wanted this jacket for a while now, and they’ve always been too expensive. I found this one and immediately bought it, and I’m SO glad I did. I got a large, and it fits exactly how I wanted it to. I 100% recommend." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $33.69 (available in women's sizes S-3X and in 19 colors and styles).

    4. Glossier Cloud Paint to make your cheeks (or eyes) ~glow~ even if you overslept and only had .2 seconds to get ready.


    Promising review: "I love this product so much. The main reason is that it lasts a lot longer on my face than powder blushes. I tend to have oily skin, so I think any cream product just 'meshes' with my skin better and lasts longer, where powder just gets eaten up by the oil on my face quickly. ALSO, I love how much control you have with the product because you put in on with your fingers you can put it exactly where you want on your face and put as much or as little as possible. I have an olive skin tone, so I am pretty white in the winter but tan easily in the summer. I use the color beam and find it looks good through all the color changes of my skin for a natural look. I love it and 100% would recommend." —sofsof10

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in six shades).

    5. A sleek silverware tray because just letting your utensils sit in a pile really shouldn't ~slide~ anymore. You're better than that.

    Long rectangular tray in grey with four different sections with silverware in each

    Promising review: "This is a great and ingenious product. I’ve been looking for something that does just this and does it well, and this definitely is it. I 100% recommend it." —Ivan

    Promising review: "This was amazing! I used it to clean my coffee pot. It was stained dark brown/black on the inside and I thought for sure it was ruined and I’d have to replace it but I popped a couple of these tablets in there and when I poured out the solution it was SO shiny, like brand new! I was completely blown away and will 100% recommend these!" —Haley Dennis

    7. Some touch-up razors designed to be a quick way for you to shape your eyebrows, remove any hair, and just get smooth skin without having to make another appointment and spend more time in a salon chair., Amazon

    Promising review: "After years of waxing my upper lip hair, I decided to find a less painful way for hair removal. Using a regular razor was ok, but the regular razors are just way too big and uncomfortable. I ordered these and OH MY GOSH they are *amazing.* They're perfect for upper lip hair and peach fuzz, and today for the first time, I tried them on my eyebrows, and they're great for getting those random stray hairs above the eyebrows. I'm super happy with these and would 100% recommend them. I'll definitely be buying more." —CM

    Get a 3-pack from Amazon for $4.99 (also available in a nine pack).

    8. A heated massager you can use on your shoulders, lower back, or other areas of the body where you hold a lot of stress, which is especially great this time of year.

    The rectangle-shaped massager with four lit-up red circles in the middle attached to a pillow

    The massager has three-dimension deep-kneading nodes that automatically change direction every minute. Plus, the heating function can be turned on and off. It has to be plugged-in during use, but it does conveniently fit behind necks, backs, calves, and more.

    Promising review: "This is the best product I have bought all year—I was going in and getting 60-90 minute massages every other week to fix some shoulder/back issues, which got expensive after a while, so I decided to try this. I feel like it has changed my life! I feel so much relief. I 100% recommend it." —Darkness

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    9. An electric wine opener so you can uncork bottles in seconds, no struggling required.,

    The wine opener is rechargeable and can open up to 30 bottles in a single charge. All you have to do is place it on top of the wine bottle, press the button, and it will work to get the cork out in seconds.

    Promising review: "This is absolutely terrific. It left no bits of cork floating in the bottle, smooth motion, and about 40 bottles to one charge. I regret not having found this little appliance earlier, but I recommend it 100%." —R. Weiss

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    10. A Dagne Dover carry-on made out of neoprene and mesh for a super soft bag you'll be able to fit SO much stuff in that you'll never travel without it again.

    Dagne Dover / Via

    Promising review: "This is the best travel bag. It's the perfect size for long and short trips. I took a medium-sized suitcase and my large Dagne Dover bag on a two-week trip. The bag was ideal for in-between trips around the UK. It looks stylish, and the material is high quality! I recommend it 100%" —Christine U.

    Get it from Dagne Dover for $95+ (available in five sizes and six colors).

    11. A microwave pasta cooker, because waiting for water to boil is the WORST part of making pasta. What's the saying about watching paint dry? Well, when you're hungry, boiling water is worse than that.


    Plus, it's super easy to use. Use measure how much pasta you want to cook using the serving size holes in the top of the container. Then add water to the level etched on the side of the container. With the lid off, heat the container in the microwave. One serving usually takes about 12 to 13 minutes. Then put the lid on, hold the sides, and pour the water out. (This part will be very hot.)

    Promising review: "This product works amazingly well! I followed the directions exactly as it said, and my pasta came out perfectly! It's great for when I get off work late at night and don't feel like dirtying up a strainer and pots. I can make a perfect self-serving for myself or a whole box if I want. Also, I can pop it in the microwave and walk away to get other things done while I wait which you can't do with pasta on the stove. I love that the lid is also a built-in strainer, but please be aware that the directions state to NOT microwave with the lid on. I can see that the only bad reviews are because of the plastic melting which can only happen if you microwave the cooker with the lid on, and in that case, it would be your fault for not following the directions. It gets really hot while cooking and clearly state to NOT microwave with the lid on. I would 100% recommend this!" —Kristina

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    12. Pimple patches that'll work like magic to stop any zit in its track in only a matter of hours.

    On the right: a hand with a pimple patch stuck to the finger with gunk on it On the left: the pimple patches sitting next to the packaging, showing how small they are

    Promising review: "I'm almost 40, and I still occasionally get a pimple or a cystic type bump on my face. The last time I had one, it took six weeks to go away and left me with a scar. That's when I found these. The next cystic type pimple I had was gone within 5 days while using these patches every evening. I 100% recommend this product!" —Michelle Stine

    Get a pack of 36 from Amazon for $12.50.

    13. A plush throw blanket providing the ultimate cover for your next TV binge. You'll be so comfortable and cozy, it will totally be okay if you don't move for the whole day. Yes, Netflix, I am still watching. Thanks for asking.

    The dark grey velvet-link blanket with fringe on the ends

    Promising review: "This throw blanket is what dreams are made of. It's so soft and keeps you so warm. It's perfect on our couch. I 100% recommend it. We have the grey color, and it's perfect." — Lewlew3

    Get it from Nordstrom for $39.50 (available in 14 colors).

    14. A portable blender so you can make a delicious smoothie in seconds anywhere. Yep, you read that right, *anywhere*. We're talking at work, home, on the street, at the gym. You name it, you can do it.

    (left) A reviewer holding the bottle-like blender, showing that it's filled with fruit; (right) The same reviewer now showing how it turned that fruit into a smoothie

    This 14-ounce jar is dishwasher safe and charges with a USB. Plus, it's quiet, so you don't have to worry about annoying the people around it when you use it.

    Promising review: "I love it!!!!! It's very practical and easy to clean! Plus, it's very lightweight. I been taking it to work every day! It's not too loud either. I would recommend it 100%."—Manuel Hernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in four colors).

    15. *The* "Amazon Coat" because WINTER IS COMING (gasps!) and this number will keep you warm and stylish through every temperature drop and snow storm the weather throws your way.

    Reviewer wearing the hooded coat in olive green

    Promising review: "I love this coat. It looks high-end and is made with great materials. It's super soft and lightweight. I was looking for something longer, that had a hood, and that would be comfortable. This coat truly fits the bill. The cold air doesn't go up underneath or up the sleeves (sleeves are ribbed). The green color is great, very trendy. I also like the side zippers. They give me that extra room when sitting down in the car. I recommend this coat 100%. I've gotten several positive comments from friends on this coat." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99 (available in women's sizes XXS-5X and in 13 colors).

    16. A set of bed bands that'll work super hard to keep the corners of your fitted sheet in place so they don't pop off and try to escape every chance they get. Plus, this means you won't have to fight to get the sheet on all four corners as often – that itself is a chore.

    Promising review: "I was concerned these would damage my sheets, and I was hoping for a cheaper solution. BUT after using them they are worth EVERY PENNY. They have a toothed rubber grip inside, so it won't damage the sheets. I have had no problems with sheets slipping since we got them. MONEY WELL SPENT. I 100% recommend this item." —JakeNLeelo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four pack sizes and five colors).

    17. An eyeliner stamp because nothing, and I mean nothing, can stop you from having an amazing day when you have a perfect cat eye, Amazon

    Simply line up the stamp from the corner of your eye to the end of your eyebrow and stamp to create the perfect wing on both sides. The stamp is waterproof *and* smudge-proof, so you won't have to worry about reapplying throughout the day. The pen has two ends — one for stamping and the other has a fine tip for putting eyeliner on the rest of your eyelid.

    Promising review: "I 100% recommend this product. I love this!!! I can’t say enough good things. I am horrible at making my wings even!!! This has been a lifesaver and so versatile. It has cut my makeup time in half!!!" —lilly1991

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    18. Some anti-chafing bands that not only look pretty great, but also do an amazing job of protecting your thighs when you walk long distances.

    Reviewer pic wearing the thigh bands in black lace

    Promising review: "These things saved my legs on vacation. We took a trip to Disney, and the first day we were there I just wore shorts, like normal (without these). By the end of the day, my legs were already chaffing and in pain. I wore these all day the second day and no pain. They are super comfy and super cute. I thought the lace would irritate my chaffing more, but it did not at all. We were super sweaty for long periods of time, and these held up. They did not roll or slide on me at all, stayed in place the WHOLE time. I would 100% recommend these and have told all my friends about these things. You won't regret it!" —Jessica

    19. A Diptyque candle worth the splurge because as soon as you light it, the scent will fill the room (and your home) with a beautiful aroma that may just make you take a deep breath and relax a bit.

    The white candle in a clear cup with a black and white label on the front

    This candle smells like a bouquet of roses and blackcurrant leaves. The first time you light the candle, you should let it burn for at least two hours (or until the whole top is liquid) because this will help it burn more evenly as you use it.

    Promising review: "There is nothing more luxurious than lighting a Diptyque candle. The scent fills the rooms quickly, and it is so fresh and fruity but not overpowering. The packaging is beautiful, and the candle itself is so well made. It burns so evenly, and if cared for properly (which is too effortless and easy), then it lasts a very long time. All the way down to the last little bit of wax it still smells divine. I 100% recommend." —Nicolah

    Get it from Nordstrom for $36+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A Squatty Potty that adjusts your position so you can go number two more easily and live a life without bloating or constipation holding you back.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical when I first heard about the Squatty Potty. After all, I have been pooping just fine for decades. But when a co-worker gave a glowing review of them, I decided to try one. From the first moment that I sat down, I knew it was going to be a good experience. It's just a more natural way to poop. Not only did my business take about half the time to complete, it was a more thorough job. I recommend this product 100%." —LL

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    21. An inverted umbrella designed to fold the part that gets wet down, which keeps you (and the floor) around you dry. Pretty sure this thing was designed by a genius.

    The umbrella with a black outside and red inside open and then closed next to it, showing how it closes in on itself

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my umbrella!! I love that it keeps me drier getting out of the car when it's raining, and I get to see the pretty design on the inside when it's open! I love the handle too. It makes it so easy to carry things by freeing up my hand. I LOVE it! I got one, and now my mom, aunt, and grandmother all have one too! It’s so cute I want it to rain more so I can use it! I definitely would recommend it. I love that the company got in touch with me to make sure everything went okay and asked if I had any complaints or concerns. I definitely 100% recommend it. Just go ahead and buy it already because you know you want it!" —Dmeredith17

    Get it from Amazon for $20.55 (available in 45 colors).

    22. A breakfast sandwich maker – it's *so* simple; you just put all the ingredients in and have a delicious meal you don't have to leave your house to minutes.

    The maker with two circular holders inside with an egg in one and a bagel in another with controls on the bottom and the lid open
    Hamilton Beach

    Well, actually five minutes to be exact. Plus, if you want to make cleanup even easier, spray the rings and cooking plate with nonstick spray before use and after washing. And if you need some help with sandwich ideas, the maker comes with a recipe book filled with different combinations you can make.

    Promising review: "Normally, I am skeptical of things like this, but I saw the reviews and decided to give it a try. This maker works perfectly! The eggs are cooked through, the eggs do NOT leak when poured into the tray, and even after just 4 minutes, a thick sausage patty was heated all the way through. I 100% recommended!" —Crispybit

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    23. A microfiber towel you can wear to ~wrap~ up the amount of time it takes to dry your hair. This little guy sucks up the water *FAST*, so you can be ready in no time.

    Model holding the white towel up to their wet hair

    Promising review: "Wow! I'm so glad I got this. I get home pretty late from work, and I usually just go to bed with my hair damp, but a regular towel doesn’t even touch this one! My hair was dry in a matter of a few minutes! Even my boyfriend was amazed. And I love how lightweight and soft it is. No more big towels breaking my neck and leaving my hair soaking wet! I would recommend this 100%. I'm going to get one for my mom and sister!" —H.Faith

    Get it from Amazon for $20+ (available in two sizes and seven colors).

    24. A travel wallet made with RFID-blocking shield material to not only keep all your many important travel documents organized but also *safe* and ready for you to grab when you need your ID quickly in the TSA line.

    Reviewer pic of the rectangle-shaped orange wallet open, showing all the different pockets filled with cards, a passport, and other travel documents

    Promising review: "I loved using this travel wallet when I went to Canada two weekends ago! I was able to carry what I needed, including my checks (just in case), and I even was able to fit my boyfriend's passport in addition to mine. The color is FANTASTIC. I 100% would recommend it. P.S. I dropped the wallet once and was afraid I would have scuffed or torn the material, but NO, it is still beautiful, you can't tell I dropped it!" —S&L

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 37 colors).

    25. A pair of Spanx faux leather leggings that look so real, your friends might not believe they're not actual leather and have to feel your legs to make sure.

    Spanx / Via

    Promising review: "I have these faux leather leggings in every color offered — they are THE BEST and a staple for my fall and winter closet. I'm currently pregnant and sized up for the fall to be able to continue to wear! I 100% recommend everyone get a pair. They make you look and feel amazing." —aadams10

    Get them from Nordstrom, Spanx, or Amazon for $98+ (available in sizes XS-3X and XS-XL Petite).

    26. A Kindle Paperwhite ingeniously made to be waterproof so you can take a nice long bubble bath and not worry about destroying your book when the bubbles get a bit out of control.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I've been an avid Kindle user for years, but when I saw this version, I knew it was time to upgrade. The main selling point is the fact that this one is waterproof. So waterproof, in fact, that it can be in up to 2 meters of fresh water for more than 60 minutes. Plus, it's lighter, has more storage, and the battery lasts for WEEKS. I took this on vacation with me a while ago and was so impressed. I was able to sit on the ledge in the pool and read without worrying about getting the device wet. And I even put it in the water to test, and it still works perfectly. Plus, I used it every day and didn't have to charge it the whole time I was on the trip. That gets a big gold star in my book. And I'm not the only one that thinks this. It has more than 52,000 5-star reviews and 4.4 out of 5 stars. If you're an avid reader (or just a casual reader who wants to read more), this is for you.

    Promising review: "I have an older Nook with e-ink display and have always really enjoyed the premise, but wanted something more modern. When I saw that this was waterproof, I was hooked. It reads just like a paper book, the light feature is gentle and perfect for night reading, the battery lasts for weeks, and I'm not worried about water damage at the beach or pool. I 100% would recommend it if you're an avid reader like myself." —whirledpieces

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in 8- and 32 GB and in black and blue).

    27. A colander you clip on to the pot so you can strain the water out of the pasta SUPER easily and also dirty fewer dishes, which is the way I like to cook.

    The half circle-shaped colander in grey attached to a pot filled with pasta, over a sink, straining the water out of the pot

    Promising review: "I recommend this 100%. We use this as our default strainer now for all cooking, and we cook a lot. The only time we need to bust out the huge colanders is when we're cooking with our pot that has a large curved lip/flange all around the top that's about 1/2" wide. This only clips on to normal, thin pot rims. This fits very flexibly on large and small pots, and has held up great in the dishwasher, and takes up so much less space in use, in cleaning, and in storage than the big colanders. Just great!" —Ann Hendricks

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors).

    28. A Maybelline multi-use concealer to quickly swipe under your eyes or over a pimple for natural coverage you'll be thankful for all day long.

    29. A wood polish and conditioner that'll work like magic to return any wood to its original state and keep it from fading.

    Reviewer pic of a table with the right half is faded wood and the left is dark and polished to look brand new

    It enhances the natural color of the wood and polishes it — plus adds a protective coating of Carnauba Wax and Beeswax to prevent it from fading in the future.

    Promising review: "This product is incredible. You get amazing results. I bought this for my kitchen cabinets, and they now look practically brand new. I recommend it 100%." —Nstack

    Get it from Amazon for $17.14.

    30. An ice roller said to stop swelling, prevent wrinkles, relieve fatigue, reduce redness, and improve dry skin so you really can say, "Yes, I did wake up like this."

    Reviewer holding the ice roller with peach-colored handle and white roller on top

    Just keep the roller in the freezer and grab it after getting up in the morning, while you have a face mask on, or even after you get a little too much sun on your face.

    Promising review: "I recommend this 100%. It really helps in the mornings when you face seems swollen or after workouts! It looks a little weird but is totally worth the embarrassment." —Alicia

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in nine colors).

    31. High-waisted opaque leggings that look just as good with a workout top for a yoga class as they do with a jacket and boots running errands on Saturday morning. It's all about versatility.


    One size is recommended for women's sizes S-L and plus size is recommended for sizes XL-XXXL. The leggings are made with eight percent spandex, so they have a good stretch to them, but reviewers swear they are not see-through.

    Promising review: "My favorite leggings to buy used to be super cheap, like around $3, but they are slightly transparent and ripped very easily. I didn't know what I was missing out because these are the best leggings ever. They're not see-through AT ALL and are incredibly soft. I am gonna order more very soon. I 100% recommend them." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99 (available in women's one size and plus size and in 53 colors and styles).

    32. And a pair of AirPod Pros with noise cancellation so clear, you'll be able to focus on your work and not the barking dogs and noisy neighbors (or roommates) around you.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These are the best earbuds I’ve ever purchased. For years, I wanted wireless noise-canceling earbuds after using the Beats studios and Bose lines. Being an iPhone user, I always saw the appeal of AirPods but never could use them due to them not fitting my ear correctly and always falling out. As soon as I saw the design of the AirPods Pro, I instantly came to amazon and ordered them. If you’re at all contemplating ordering these, I 100% recommend. The noise-canceling is slightly above average and the transparency mode is extremely useful on the go or whenever you need to hear your surroundings with your music. It is an amazing product and definitely worth the steep $250." —Corey P.
