    1. The Massage Bible, a book that'll guide you and your boo through comforting and satisfying massage techniques, helping you both ease each other's aches and pains in case the unenthusiastic rubs your partner currently calls a massage are ~knot~ cutting it.


    Promising review: "I love that I can pick the different types of massage based off of what muscles I want to work on. My husband does physical labor for work and it’s nice for him to be able to tell me what hurts, and I can just look up techniques that work on that specific area. The instructions are also organized and easy to read and follow for someone inexperienced." —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $11.13.

    2. A robot vacuum so you can take one chore off of your plates when your busy day involves you both doing dishes, folding laundry, cleaning the windows, orrr having a well-deserved soak in the tub (you two deserve to define "productive multitasking" any way you please!).


    This robo-vac has an infrared-sensor for evading obstacles and drop-sensing tech to avoid falls. It also automatically recharges so it's always ready to clean. It comes with a remote control (two AAA batteries included), charging base, AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, and five cable ties. It can clean continuously for up to 100 minutes.

    Promising review: "We are very pleased with our Eufy who we named Sneaky Pete because he is very quiet and can sneak up on you. We run him twice a day and are always surprised how much grime and pet hair he picks up. The instructions are simple and clear. Cleaning is super easy. He travels under beds and couches where we would not normally be able to reach with the traditional vacuum. After comparing all of the leading robo-vacs, we chose the Eufy because it was rated as high as expensive ones and was less than half of the cost. We chose well. Like all robo-vacs, Pete will become confused on an area that is black due to the anti-fall safety feature. Like a black patch of a rug. But, we don't hold that against him. Our dog is totally indifferent to Pete which is another pleasant surprise. We are very happy with our Eufy." —Dahna Brinkley

    Get it from Amazon for $229.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A Truth or Dare card game for couples who are thrilled to be out of the dating game, but who wouldn't mind playing a few games of their own when date night starts getting repetitive.


    This game includes fifty truth cards and fifty dare cards, all designed to bring a little scandalous spice into your date night.

    Promising review: "Fun!!! My husband and I found out a few new things about each other even after 14 years together. Don't play unless you expect a little 'adult' fun after..." —Sheeya Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95.

    4. A chin strap that's sure to help you out if your snoring wakes your partner up in the middle of the night, every night (it also helps prevent drooling, which your pillow case is sure to appreciate).


    "I wrote an entire post on tips that may save your relationship from snoring because I fully believe getting enough sleep is a crucial part of marital bliss." —Mallory

    Promising review: "This is a great product! I was a little concerned at first that this would be uncomfortable and I would not be able to sleep but that is not the case. It's very lightweight and comfortable, and it eliminates my snoring completely! My husband is ecstatic!" —Jen C Ohio

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    5. Or, a white noise machine that'll lull you to sleep despite your partner's loud snoring.


    It comes with 20 non-looping fan and white noise sounds.

    Promising review: "A soft and very soothing pitch. I instantly fell asleep amid my husband's loud snoring. This may be a marriage saver!" —Brenda R. Lewis

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95+ (available in two colors).

    6. A bottle of Poo Pourri you can get if you feel like sharing a bathroom with your significant other really ~stinks~ — if you both spray this into your toilet bowl before you go, it won't have to!,

    Promising review: "We are a family of six in a small one-bathroom house. This is, to put it lightly, a horrific nightmare — particularly after my teenage son spends some time in the bathroom. After a couple of weeks of gentle encouragement ('YOU ARE KILLING EVERYONE. SPRAY THAT STUFF ON THE WATER BEFORE YOU POOP OR I'M TAKING AWAY YOUR PHONE AND, SO HELP ME GOD, I WILL CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND AND TELL HER EXACTLY WHY YOU GOT IT TAKEN AWAY.') he started using it regularly. The bathroom is much less disgusting now after he leaves." —Supa D

    Get it from Amazon for $8.65+ (available in 25 scents and six sizes).

    7. A pocket shower curtain for ~clearly~ keeping your individual products organized and keeping you from secretly shoving their stuff off the side of the tub to make room for your shampoo.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this shower curtain. If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of ledge room for all your stuff, this shower curtain will be your best friend. You can fit so many things inside the pockets! You can also use this as a liner and have another, more decorative, shower curtain on the outside but I personally use it as a shower curtain. This is the best shower curtain/liner money can buy!" —DAtkins

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    8. A beard bib so you can completely eliminate the awful mess you get in the sink after you shave, which will probably make living with your spouse a slightly less ~hairy~ situation.


    Promising review: "I always got yelled by my wife for not cleaning the mess after I trim my beard. There is always some left/stuck somewhere which my wife will find. This product saved me from so much of yelling. LOL. The suction cups stick onto the glass effortlessly and they have a firm grip. You need this!" —Farroukh Mohammed

    Get it from Amazon for $8.66.

    9. An Echo Spot that'll display the weather, set alarms/timers, play music, check your security cameras, and listen to you better than your spouse ever could. This'll even turn your lights on and off so you and your sweetheart don't have to argue over whose turn it is to get up and turn out the lights.


    The Echo Spot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set music alarms, and read audiobooks from Audible. It can also control Amazon Video on Fire TV, give random facts throughout the day, tell you the weather, and can show you grocery lists, recipes, and set timers... I'm still just trying to figure out what my Echo Spot CAN'T do.

    Promising review: "I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house, from my locks to my thermostats. I have one Echo, four Echo Dots and now one Echo Spot. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple guy but I choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!" —Apply Guy

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in two colors).

    10. A rechargeable reading light (with a built-in clip) so you can stay up as late as you want reading spooky novels without disturbing your other half.

    It has three brightness levels and comes with a USB charging cord.

    Promising review: "This should be listed as the marriage saver. When one likes to read and one needs darkness to sleep, this is the perfect solution. But additionally, the light shines directly on your page, making it easier to use than a table lamp. The cocoon of light is perfect for drawing you deeper into the world of your book. Highly recommend!" —DevorahK

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    11. A self cleaning litter box, because the person who insisted on getting little fluffy Frou-Frou also insists that they cleaned the litter box yesterday, every day.


    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised with how incredibly easy this box is. I have always lived in pretty small apartments and tend to have guests in and out. I hated having a litter box out and (of course) hate any smell. I keep this one in my guest bathroom now and it almost doesn't matter — there is never ANY smell because everything is contained in that covered front area. I also literally never have to see any waste, since it's self-cleaning. Even when you take the box out to cover and throw away, the front area is still covered. I know the refills are moderately priced, but trust me, I really do feel like it's worth it. It has made the litter box a complete non-issue in my home. Extra plus: It's not bad looking. It has a pretty sleek look.... for a litter box. Easily five stars!" —Kylie

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95.

    12. A porcelain aromatherapy diffuser for times when you both need a deep breath and a moment to relax. And, perhaps more importantly, for times when you workout at home and make the living room smell like a sweatbox.


    This uses ultrasonic vibrations, not heat, to create steam. You can set it on a continuous three hour setting or have it set in seven hour intervals. Be sure to grab a pack of aromatherapy oils so you can use it right away!

    Promising review: "This is elegant and practical. It's very classy looking and goes great with the decor in my house — it’s white, stone, and somewhat discreet. It was very easy to set up and my favorite feature about this whole thing, aside from the looks, is that it is very quiet! Great purchase!" —Tambra Riddle

    Get it from Amazon for $119 (available in two colors) or get a similarly lovely but less expensive version for $59.59.

    13. A pack of 100 date ideas you can pick at random or move through your favorites to seriously up your dating game, even when you've been together forever.


    The box is filled with 100 cards that are divided into three sections: things to do, things you're doing, and the things you've already done to save you time searching and keep your activities/memories organized.

    Promising review: "Wow! What an awesome idea. My husband and I love these cards. After we put the kids to bed, we choose all the fun activities we are going to do for the week. Such a blast! This has helped us find our fun again!" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    14. As We Grow, a memory book that'll encourage you and your loved one to share the memories that matter most, ones that have made your relationship stronger and are worth reflecting on time and time again.


    Promising review: "This is a beautiful keepsake that I am so excited to sit down and complete with my husband. My plan is to do a weekly night where we sit down, reminisce, and complete a few pages. We have been married for 16 years and I wish this book had been in existence back then as I would have loved having it to record our memories from the beginning, but I am excited to go back and recall all the fun that we have had along the way in our married journey! I am a wedding photographer and also think this would make the perfect gift for my new clients!" —Catherine A Smeader

    Get it from Amazon for $25.46.

    15. A jerky bouquet so you can say you're sorry in a funny and fun way after you realize the silly ~beef~ you two had was probably your fault. Or more specifically, hangry you's fault.


    This will solve both the apology and the hangry, so you're covered for sure. BTW, this bouquet includes five sticks of buffalo, five hot venison, five mild venison, and five sticks of elk... that's 20 ounces of meat altogether!

    Promising review: "This was a Valentine’s Day gift for my husband. It arrived on time, nicely packaged. He really liked it. This is the perfect gift for a man or woman who appreciates thoughtfulness and practicality. The meat sticks are delicious and are not just beef but four gourmet game meats. I would recommend this gift." —Fan Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99.

    16. A dual-thickness comforter with a warm side and a cool side for couples who have completely different body temperatures. Now you can both sleep soundly without shivering or sweating profusely.


    Promising review: "This comforter is a game changer. He’s always cold and I’m always hot...finally a comforter that works for us both! Looks great in our duvet and no one can tell that it has two thicknesses." —Anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in two sizes).

    17. A pot lid rack and pan organizer rack to solve your shared frustration of triggering a cookware avalanche every time you need to grab something from the cabinet. No more!

    Promising review: "This product may have saved our marriage! A simple solution to a complex problem. Our cabinet that held the pans and lids turned into an avalanche of despair every time we wanted to use a pan. We gave up on trying to find the correct lid. Now we have a simple stack of pans in the cabinet with biggest on the bottom and smallest on top with their corresponding lids hanging in the same order from the door on this nifty organizer. My wife is still wondering what to do with the extra time and lack of stress every time she goes to grab a pan or lid." —AmosJK

    Get them from Amazon: lid rack for $14.76 and pan rack for $14.77

    18. A set of fool-proof waste containers that'll make organizing your recycling so easy, you won't have to feel like ~garbage~ when your partner asks you to stop throwing cans in the trash.


    Promising review: "I actually REALLY love these. Putting the plastic together was a bit more of a challenge than I comfortably care to admit, but within a few minutes, they were set up sturdily. They velcro together to create one lightweight unit with large volume. We go to the recycling center about once a week and, honestly, we could probably wait even longer because of the size of the bins. Plus, they have a weird appeal to them which I like, which helps because, in our small apartment, they sit in our living area. I would definitely recommend them!" —Matt Chapko

    Get them from Amazon for $24.

    19. A Marital Bliss card game so you can each earn points for mundane chores and activities (like carrying groceries or cooking dinner) and get a treat for your hard work at the end of the week (like a full-body massage or breakfast in bed) — provided neither of you mind a little friendly competition. 😉


    Promising review: "Literally SAVED our marriage at 16 years. Game forces you to look for the positive in the other's actions and requires simple actions. Love it!" —HappyWife

    Get it from UncommonGoods for $14.95 or Amazon for $19.99.

    20. An iPad screen protector to prevent your shared device from getting cracks and scratches, saving you a trip to the Genius Bar, hundreds of dollars in repair fees, and an argument over who dropped it in the first place.


    "I only dropped it because you distracted me!!!"

    These protectors fit the new 9.7-inch iPads. Also, check out screen protectors for other devices.

    Promising review: "My husband thought it would be funny to pretend to drop my iPad. Of course, his finger slipped and he actually dropped it on our tile floor. Luckily, I had this screen protector on it and my iPad is totally unharmed. I can’t say the same for my husband. 😏" —Kimberly Olsen

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    21. A pair of Bose QuietComfort noise-cancelling wireless headphones for when you just need some quiet time.


    Promising review: "If anything can save a marriage, it's these, LOL!!! These sound SO GOOD, work so well, and feel so good that you should be begging me to stop buying them so I can leave some for everyone else. I bought two pairs of these, one for myself and one for my father. These things can save marriages and relationships by the droves. Sounds superb, the software works excellent and is easy to use. They have excellent bass and clarity all mixed into one. I'm telling you they are worth every penny, durable as all get out, and I have been using them nonstop since I got them. I am listening to music through them right now while writing this review." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $296.95+ (available in three colors).

    This is our pick for the best high-end wireless headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    22. A banana slicer that'll eliminate disagreements over whose turn it is to slice the bananas. Now, you'll both WANT to do it.


    Promising review: "My (now) husband and I were about to get married and we had to decide on the store to register with. We looked at every store, trying our hardest to find a place where we could register that had a great banana slicer. Finally we gave up. If we couldn't find a good banana slicer, then what was the point of even getting married? A guardian angel must have been looking out for us because I finally stumbled upon the Victorio 571B — the holy grail of banana slicers. It was then that I knew that things would be OK, and I would be able to have a happy marriage after all. We ended up only registering for the banana slicer. You never know if you might lose it while traveling, lending it out to someone, or just misplacing it." —KRWE30

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    23. A budget planner so you're both on the same page when it comes to bills and expenditures, like putting aside a sum of money for an arcade machine. Oh...wait, did we not agree upon that?,

    This planner has weekly, monthly, and yearly sections for expense tracking.

    Promising review: "I like how this book is set up to manage my finances for an entire year, all in one place. It has plenty of space for writing entries with my messy handwriting. Hopefully, this will help my husband and I stay on the same page budget-wise, having everything in one book. I was using random notebooks before this. I feel a lot more organized now." —Staci Harrison

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    24. A couple's activity book with fun little prompts sure to provide a lot of laughs and some quality bonding time.


    Promising review: "I highly recommend this book for newlyweds. If you are looking for a way to understand and strengthen your relationship, buy this book! It's a fun five-minute activity you can do with your love one every night before you go to bed. It's always so much fun to look back at your old entries, too, and see how much your lives and perspectives have changed over the years. By far this was one of the cheapest and best investments that I have made for my relationship!" —HayleyShay

    Get it Amazon for $11.47.

    25. A vibrating alarm clock, because if your S.O.'s ringtone wakes you up one more time at 5 a.m., you might actually lose it. Or alternatively, if *you* are the early bird, you won't have to worry about waking the whole house up for your morning jog.


    This alarm can also be used with sound on and it can be VERY loud — even the heaviest sleepers won't stand a chance!

    Promising review: "This alarm clock has been a lifesaver/marriage-saver, LOL! My husband wakes up for work super early, and every morning, he would wake myself and my infant son up with his obnoxious alarm clock! I started to look into a vibrating alarm and decided on the Sonic Bomb to use the vibration feature only, and let me tell you IT WORKS and IT'S AWESOME!!! If you need a tactile alarm clock, I would definitely recommend the Sonic Bomb!" —Jessica

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

    26. A bottle of Grandma's Secret Spot Remover that'll come to the rescue when you accidentally spill wine on the armchair that your S.O. inherited from their great-grandmother.

    Promising review: "I was super skeptical. I bought this expecting nothing. Ended up using it on a two-year-old (coffee perhaps?) stain on a fabric ottoman that my wife was just about ready to divorce me over. BAM! Stain gone. Can't explain it, don't want to explain it. Saved my marriage, joking but not really.....Magic. Try it. Only issue is the fabric seems rougher after treatment, not sure if its the cleaner or the scrubbing I did to get it out." —goodtimes

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $13.09 or a two-pack for $9.44.

    27. A dishwasher magnet so there's zero confusion over whether the dishes are washed or not.


    Promising review: "This simple product had been essential to our marriage during the first few weeks with a newborn when you don't know what day it is. Also helpful in a house where people have different life/work/sleep/chore schedules. Seriously, love this thing. Even purchased one for the home and one for the office." —nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49.

    28. Long-distance touch bracelets to make time spent away from your bae a little more bearable. Touch one and the other lights up and vibrates, so they know when you're thinking of them and vice versa.


    Download the app that connects the bracelets, and tap your bracelet to send a message to your loved one. Theirs will light up and vibrate, so they'll know you're thinking about them. You can send up to 10 taps in one message. Plus, these bands are waterproof, so you can even wear them while swimming or in the shower.

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I aren't in an LDR, but we both suffer from anxiety and let me tell you, these bracelets were practically made for our relationship! I get very busy, I don't really use my phone so I don't text a lot. The bracelets really help in those moments when I don't want to text, or when I really need his hugs and support. It's the closest thing I have to feeling his touch. He's going to Peru soon, so for a while we will be LDR! These bracelets will definitely be a lifesaver when that happens." —KittyKen

    Get a set of two from UncommonGoods for $98 (available in four additional band colors).

    29. A peppermint and tea tree deodorant spray, if your spouse's foot odor is so bad that you've actually contemplated a temporary separation. "It's not you, dear, it's your feet."

    Promising review: "This bottle saved my marriage! My sandals become so stinky over time! And my husband gets the brunt of it. The first day I received this, I sprayed my suede-soled sandals (the stinkiest ones by far). Immediately, I smell peppermint/tea tree — and no stink! Sprayed on my stinky feet, same thing! I am content, love this product, and so appreciative to have found this. Absolutely recommend!" —MichelleLA

    Get it from Amazon for $12.82.
