    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their best impulse purchases on Amazon. Here are the fun *and* useful results:

    1. An Amazon Fire TV stick you can simply pop into your existing TV and stream all the shows, movies, and music you want.

    Amazon / Via

    "I’d been a loyal Apple TV user until ours kept glitching, and I was so sick of it that I popped over to Amazon and bought the Fire Stick. It’s so much better in so many ways, and it’s connected to my Alexa so I can tell her to turn on a show for me when I’m too lazy to get up and grab the remote." —bethanyh49a0a6d79

    "I don’t normally make big purchases online, but the Firestick is the best thing ever and I’m obsessed with it!" —alisiakrieg

    You can use the voice button to find shows, launch apps, search for type of movie ("Alexa find suspense thrillers") OR EVEN ORDER A PIZZA from Dominos!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    2. A gorgeous long-sleeve sheath dress made with stretch lace so you can look entirely chic without *stretching* your budget — whether you're looking for a cocktail number or wedding dress.

    "Due to scheduling of a move across the country, my husband and I opted to have a short engagement and had a smaller, intimate Vegas wedding with our immediate families. As much as I wanted to do the whole boutique visit, trying on multiples styles, I turned to Amazon. I purchased and returned about four or five gown-like dresses, becoming more upset that I couldn't find anything I liked until I stumbled upon what would eventually be my dress. I bought it on a whim, not thinking I'd like it as much as I did. I didn't show anyone except my best friend, who loved it. I debuted it on my wedding day, and my parents, in-laws, and husband absolutely loved it. Thanks, Amazon!" —angelav45d8cf1a3

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $70.17. Available in sizes XS-XL and five colours.

    3. A classic Nintendo Entertainment System with an old-school look that's pre-loaded with 30 games, including Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Pac-Man, Final Fantasy, and many more.

    Amazon / Via

    All you need to do is plug it right into your TV and get playing!

    4. A pack of adorable and comfortable camper-style socks that'll make you really happy to flash a bit of ankle.

    Amazon / Via

    "I borrowed a pair from my sister and I know it’s weird to say this about socks, but they just make me so happy to see on my feet. They’re colourful and comfortable, and I don’t know what else I could want from a casual sock. (Although unlike what the listing claims, they’re definitely not super thick wool socks. They seem to be a light-to-medium-weight cotton and acrylic blend, which was fine with me)." —Natalie Brown

    Get five pairs on Amazon Canada for $14.99. Available in eight other colour sets.

    6. An oven crisper tray so you can properly reheat your leftover (or frozen) fries and cook fried-adjacent foods like baked wings. Thanks to the open-weave basket that circulates hot air, you get a crispy exterior without having to use butter or oil. It's crunch time!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $31.78.

    7. A set of reusable and shatter-resistant glass straws to reduce your plastic waste (every little bit counts). If you don't like how cold metal straws get or think they taste weird, these are a great option!

    Amazon / Via

    The set comes with two bent straws, two straight straws, and a cleaning brush.

    "There are cheaper ones out there, but these are the best quality ones I've tried."—jazminm416b55b97

    8. A gua sha scraper (available with or without a roller) to help your skin absorb products better and increase circulation. It just *feels* really great, too.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    "I was buying a couple of skin care items that I was running low on and needed to replace and decided to invest in a jade roller as well. The roller I got came with the scraper and, even though I knew nothing about gua sha, I decided to get it. After researching it and using it, I actually like it better than my roller!" —j415abb611

    10. An Amazon Echo Dot with voice-control technology so you can tell Alexa to play music, send messages, tell you the news or weather, control smart devices, make purchases...and so much more.

    Amazon / Via

    "I got it on a whim. I already had a Sonos system and a Nest thermostat, so I figured I'd give it a try, and didn't expect to really use it that much, but it's been a game-changer. It's so nice to add things to my Cozi shopping list hands free, or check the weather forecast while I'm making breakfast, control the volume of my music and skip tracks without needing to stop what I'm doing. It's been awesome." —axj66
