    1. A bottle of Pura D'or anti-thinning shampoo formulated with nutrient-rich argan oil and biotin to nourish your hair and stimulate your scalp, removing any buildup that may be blocking your pores and helping your strands get strong. Believe me, this stuff is really gonna ~grow~ on you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "About two years ago my hair started falling a lot and I became incredibly concerned. I was using expensive Sephora shampoos but it became worse. So I started researching and I learned about this product. Not only did my hair stop falling out but the conditioner made it soft and shiny. I naturally have frizzy and dull hair so it really did wonders to my hair and saved me from going bald. I highly recommend this product. It is a bit pricey but your investment is worth it."—Maryam

    2. A pair of oversized leaf scoops for your hands so you can clear your yard in record time (and make a plump leaf pile or two to jump in!) These are especially great if the leaves are wet and yucky.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These scoops are FANTASTIC. They turned a rather physically daunting chore into a much easier one, not to mention we spend literally less than half of the time that we normally have spent gathering up all these leaves and acorns. We are going to purchase another pair for NEXT season!! Wonderful ingenious tool! A must-have for raking chores!"—JMB

    Get them from Amazon for $26.45.

    3. Or the Bag Butler, which can help you fill a 30-42 gallon bag with leaves without bending over or holding the bag. Just rake them right in!

    amazon.com

    It can also stand upright so you can use those leaf scoops I just mentioned and just plop them right into an up-right trash bag.

    Promising review: "I hate raking leaves and I've tried other leaf solutions like the huge plastic taco thing. This one plain works and makes swift work of leaves, even raking alone. I use 39-gallon bags. Make sure to insert the Butler into the bag so the handle cutouts are toward the bag opening. That way you can lift the bag and hold onto the Bag Butler to shake the leaves down once or twice if desired (so you fit more leaves per bag). I find that I can rake to the end of the Bag Butler and shake down twice before raking to the top again and tying the bag." —CenTex

    Get one from Amazon for $33.95.

    4. A fabric shaver to make all of your run-down sweaters, throw pillows, and furniture look like they just came from the store — all without having to spend tons of $$$ on repairs.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is excellent. I just 'repaired' two cashmere sweaters and one modal-blend jersey top to like-new condition. The waste compartment fills up quickly and will start clogging the blades if not emptied frequently. I will share one trick I found for emptying the area around the blades. Remove the waste compartment and hold the unit vertically over a garbage can while turning the defuzzer on. Blades will spin and the rest of the pills will fall out. Enjoy." —Fine Print Reader

    Get it on Amazon for $11.64 (available in seven colors).

    5. An eyeliner stamp, because you've been spending WAY too much time and effort trying to get the perfect wing when this thing exists and will do it for you.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This includes two waterproof and smudge-resistant stamps (one for each eye) with an eyeliner pen on the opposite end for any sharp lines or touchups. Be sure to read our post on why hundreds of people swear by this eyeliner stamp.

    Promising review: "I struggle with makeup in all aspects. Eyeliner is no exception. If I get one side to look good, the other side never matches. I was skeptical that this little eyeliner pen would help me, but it does. It goes on smoothly and only needs some minor filling in. There are two double-ended pens. One with a left stamp and one with a right stamp. The other end on both is a regular eyeliner tip. It dries quickly and stays on all day. I’m very happy with this purchase." —Rebecca

    Get two stamps from Amazon for $9.47 (available in two sizes).

    6. A set of 12 anti-snoring nose vents to open up your nostrils and alleviate the #1 most annoying thing that keeps you (and your partner) up at night — your snoring!

    amazon.com, Amazon

    There are two different types and each type has four size options!

    Promising review: "My husband is the worst about snoring and keeping me up all dang night. So I did some research and found these! I’m so excited that I bought them because he started snoring and I woke him up and asked him to use one. No noise!!! 10/10 would recommend to everyone." —Martha Jean Thompson Koons

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    7. A set of bedsheet suspenders that'll clip and grip your sheets so they stay secure, because you toss and turn in your sleep, and by the time the sun rises, your bedsheets are halfway on the floor.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Say goodbye to re arranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these bed bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I would have bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

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

    8. A pack of 200 eyeshadow shield gel patches to help prevent fallout from staining the rest of your makeup look under the eye.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "In my opinion they are excellent! They adhere nicely to the skin without irritation or pulling. It is a great price for 200 of them! They can easy be cut and shaped for different purposes. You for sure don’t have to have experience to use them. So they're great for beginners or anyone who wants to step up their makeup game. I’m so happy I found them and will definitely be ordering again!"—Ashlee

    Get a pack of 200 from Amazon for $7.69 .

    9. A silicone adjuster that'll make your ring have a tighter fit the more loops you add. Now you can wear that ring that always slips off and for sure save you a trip to the jeweler.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have skinny fingers with fat/wide knuckles. I cannot take my engagement ring down even a half size — or else it won’t fit over the bone. After purchasing these very comfortable, very durable size adjusters, I had to order another pack! I never want to be without these! The coil adjusters are easy to put on the ring (it might take a minute to get the coil around the ring but you’ll get the hang of it) and the coils don’t come off unless you undo them manually — which is VERY easy to do. It doesn’t damage the ring, either. Thank you so much, whoever patented this! It’s a lifesaver! I also think it’s great because it prevents the back of the ring from getting scratched when you wear it." —Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (for four; also available as a set of 18).

    10. A six-pack of non-toxic moth traps, because you spend so much time, effort, and money on putting together the perfect wardrobe and storing away seasonal clothing, but these guys can ruin that in literally one day.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "When I say these work fast, I mean it. I got these in hopes of killing my pantry moth problem once and for all. As soon as I set these traps out a SWARM of moths came out from who knows where. I felt like I was in The Birds it was that intense. After my momentary panic I was shocked to find that the moths went straight to the traps and got themselves stuck and within a few hours the kitchen was eerily free of moths. Don’t let the price scare you, this stuff works and works well!" —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97 (available in a pack of 6 or 20 and two colors).

    11. A set of light-dimming sheets, because someone kept looking at their very bright alarm clock and thought, "There's gotta be a way to rid my life of glare!?" And then they invented this thing. Glare be gone!

    amazon.com

    Pack comes with two large light-dimming sheets (cut to fit your needs)!

    Promising review: "What a time to be alive. I was laying awake at night wishing there was something I could do to make my hellish alarm clock less bright. I was really pleasantly surprised when I found out this product existed. I'm SO HAPPY that it does. I seriously don't know where my fiancé bought this alarm clock, but it has four brightness settings and they range from light house search light to surface of the sun. I cut one of these sheets and smoothed it over the display and it's AMAZING. I can still read the clock during the day, but at night it's now just the right brightness so I can see the time, but not burn my retinas when I crack my eyes open in the middle of the night." —Tiffany Marie

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $8.29.

    12. A pack of four toe separators so bunions and overlapping toes won't stop you from wearing your new favorite pair of shoes all around town.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are absolutely a Godsend! It is a great alternative to bunion surgery. My second toe was creeping over my big toe and at times causing spasms. These have made all the difference in the world! I am a very satisfied customer. Worth every penny! They are very comfortable to wear even with your shoes or sandals on."—Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49 (available in three colors).

    13. A genius hanger stacker to fix one of the most annoying storage problems in history. This before and after alone has already changed me for the better!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The struggle with hangers has been real for quite some time, I wish I would have known about this thing sooner! This has saved me a TON of room and hassle!"—Kara

    Get it from Amazon for $18.30 (available in six packs).

    14. A compact cupholder trashcan that'll (as the name suggests) fit perfectly in your cupholder to keep garbage from being throw around your car. You can even fit it in the side pocket of your car door as shown below.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "It’s ridiculous how much I love these! The push part is on a spring so it stays closed when you aren’t pushing it, and of course it perfectly fits in the cup holder of our vehicles. Pro tip: a quart sized Ziploc is the perfect size to add as a liner and fold over the top to keep the inside clean!" —Chaos Coordinator

    Get it on Amazon for $6.99 (available in a pack of two).

    15. A pore vacuum (yes a vacuum for your pores?!) to finally get all the dirt, grease, blackheads, and dead skin off your face for good. Dyson is shook!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It's designed for all skin types, thanks to its five different levels. Level one is for sensitive and dry skin, levels two and three are for neutral skin, and levels four and five are for mixed and oily skin. The set comes with four suction heads: for blackheads, removing dirt/grease, reducing dead skin buildup and fine lines, and tightening your skin. It's also rechargeable—they've thought of everything!

    Promising review: "I honestly can't run out of great things to say about this! This blackhead remover works WONDERS I use it about once or twice a week & absolutely love it. It works very well, and I have seen a size reduction in my pores since using it for the past few weeks. I highly recommend this blackhead remover!" —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    16. A windshield cover to protect your car from the stormy weather so you don't have to scrape ice and snow off your windshield for an hour before work every day.

    Amazon

    The shield cover is made with straps that hang down and attach to your car's wheels for a secure and tight fit. This keeps snow/wind/and frost from building up under the cover!

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I could have ever bought! I bought one for myself, my mom, and my sister. New England just got slammed with a Nor'easter, and let me tell you...this thing works! It only took about five minutes to put on my car, and like five seconds to get it off this morning. No snow or ice anywhere on the wiper well or windshield. I highly recommend this!" —Shelley

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95 (available in sizes M–L).

    17. A beauty spatula designed to get every last drop of your expensive foundation, lipgloss, or lotion. Don't let a poorly designed bottle get you down! Sooooo satisfying.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this cute little makeup spatula! It's so convenient and useful. If you're a makeup/product junkie that doesn't like waisting, (like I am) this is the perfect problem solver for those empty bottles left with product caked on the inner walls. It's long too, so it works in just about any size bottle or jar. I only bought one and I use it for everything. It's washable so it will last you a long time. Great gift for a makeup artist, if they don't already have one!" —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $6.69 (available in a pack of two).

    18. A silicone freezing tray that'll section off perfectly sized freshly frozen soups for the week. When you come home after a long day at work you'll be ~soup~er thankful this is one less thing you have to think about.

    amazon.com

    It comes with a lid to help maintain freshness and keep out odors. It's made of food-safe silicone that's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "This is the best invention since sliced bread! How many times have you thrown out soup that you forgot about in your fridge??? Well, say goodbye to spoiled soup! Finally, a way to store measured quantities of broth, but I love to use mine for soup and...wait for it...SMOOTHIES! These cubes are the best for freezing measured quantities of smoothies, simply throw one in the Vitamix, and boom! You have a fresh, already icy cold smoothie for breakfast or a snack! For anyone with limited freezer space which, let's face it, is most of us, this is a real gem. I was a bit worried about how easily the cubes would slide out, but no problems at all! The best part is how easy the cubes store in a gallon sized ziplock bag so you can reuse the cubes. AND they are dishwasher safe??? Souper Cubes, why did you take so long to come into my life!??! I can't wait until the holiday season so I can gift these as stocking stuffers — to anyone I know, you now know your gift." —jane s. catalano

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    19. A set of Schtick dermaplaning razors, because they'll shape brows flawlessly (and painlessly!). They're precise and won't irritate your skin like waxing and threading can.

    amazon.com

    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 (available in a pack of three or nine).

    20. A portable bug bite suction tool that'll reduce the itching and swelling your body is experiencing after a mosquito, bee, or wasp sting.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The suction can be pretty strong so use caution and try a small amount of suction first and work your way up if necessary.

    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. (available in packs of 1–6).

    21. A shirt-folding board so you actually put your laundry away when it comes out of the dryer instead of clumping it all in a "clean pile" and procrastinating until the next laundry day.

    youtube.com

    Promising review: "I bought mine after seeing in a BuzzFeed article. I've been using it for months now and I gotta say, it's great! I fold on a king-sized bed and it works well. It took me a little getting used to, and I was apprehensive that it wouldn't work quite right because my clothes are larger (2X), but it does a great job and has held up to two or three medium/large loads a week. If only there could be something like this for fitted sheets, I'd be set! 🤣" —Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in five colors).

    22. A bottle of earwax removal drops that'll do all the hard work for you. Gone are the days of using five Q-tips just to get nothing out, even though you know there's still wax in there!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My right ear was totally plugged so I went to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that this is the one doctors usually tell patients to get. I put the drops in, waited, then flushed my ear out with very warm water and OH MY GOSH... the gunk that came flowing out onto the towel blew my mind! It's amazing that I was ever able to hear at all with all that crap in my ear. This stuff works." —CD

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98 (available in a pack of 1–3).

    23. A 60 minute visual timer for anyone who has trouble focusing and needs a visual reminder that time is passing by while performing daily tasks at home, school, or work. Just set a time, and get back to work!

    BuzzFeed

    I have ADHD and have used various tools throughout my education to keep me organized and on-task. This is one of the best. I personally set 30 minute increments for any given task, an hour becomes too much time and I get side-tracked. It’s not that I must finish my task in 30 minutes, but rather I am kept aware of time passing in the first place and that helps me stay focused. The red film that disappears is a necessary visual representation of time that really makes this clock better than just a timer on my phone. I keep it within view and whenever I feel my mind trailing off I can quickly glance up and say, “oh wow that was 10 minutes of distraction, better get back into it."

    Get it from Amazon for $33.49 (available in two sizes and ones that come with magnets).

    24. A sea sickness wristband so you can finally be better at existing out on the ocean. You can go deep sea fishing, sail off the coast of Greece, and take a Disney cruise without throwing up every time!

    amazon.com

    It works by the white dot that forms a ball on the inside of the bracelet which puts pressure on the nerve in your wrist that communicates to your brain that you're nauseous. It disrupts that message!

    Promising review: "I have bought this for the third time. Not only is it a great idea, I wear them 24 hours a day seven days a week. I suffer from extreme vertigo and having these on I have no vertigo whatsoever. They say not to wear them all the time but I say screw them if it works, do it!" —C51
